You can have your coffee and drink it, too.

Mark wanted to stop at Peet’s on the way to The Nest. I didn’t think we had time to stop for coffee—even if we were getting it to-go. We were scheduled to meet a contractor at The Nest at 8:30 sharp. The contractor had actually used the word sharp!

Notwithstanding my desire to arrive on time, I could sense on an energetic level that Mark’s pull to the coffee shop was dominant, somehow more in alignment with Flow, than my desire to go straight to The Nest. I...

Giving in to more joy

choice feeling flow joy Feb 23, 2019

While I was skiing this week, I experienced a hint of thought pattern transformation, from judgment to enjoyment.

As I tentatively made my way down a hill, hearing the oh-so-familiar thought pattern running through my mind, “I’m not a good skier. I wonder what my family and others are thinking about me as they watch me. I hope they’re not watching. I’ll never be a good skier. It’s not my thing...”, a new thought popped in: maybe I am holding myself back...

I missed a period

expansion joy Feb 10, 2019

I missed a period in a newsletter I sent out today. Ouch. I did not like the way that unfinished sentence looked, and how it ran into the next one.

The cool thing is that, in the past, I would have also not liked the way it looked to others, I would have viewed it as a reflection of me and who I am, and today, it was the aesthetics that got my attention.

In the past, I would have viewed the missed period as a ghastly mistake, and a part of me would have linked it to my worthiness......

Beliefs: Love 'em or Leave 'em

 

Parent to Child:  You’re eight years old, you do what I tell you to do.


Parent:  What would you like to eat?
Child:  I’m not hungry.
Parent:  Well, you’re going to be in an hour.


Parent to Child:  Stop touching everything. You’re touching everything and then touching your face. That’s how you get sick. Stop touching things.


Parent to Child, after child drops glass:  I am upset with you. I am upset with you!


These are...

We can use the light to get out

choice expansion flow Jan 21, 2019

As my friend and I approached our destination in a plaza, she said, “If we go in this way, we can use the light to get out.”

Whoa! We can use the Light to get out. That’s how I heard it—Light with a capital L.

It felt like a message from Spirit.

Actually, isn’t everything a message from Spirit, insomuch as we have the opportunity to use every situation, circumstance and condition for our growth and upliftment?

For example, today I am lying in bed with a...

Man will always choose the good.
—Socrates

After dropping off my daughter at school, in the rain, with her expressing a blasé attitude about going to school, and hearing my less-than-enlightened exchange with her, I was overcome with the knowing that there is another way.

What would it be like to consciously create, right now, in this moment?

Understanding that this world is a projection of mind, a mind in which I have creative license, how and what would I like to...

Real Creating

attunement creating feeling Nov 09, 2018

In this moment, I see so clearly the basis of real creation…

For example, my belly feels big, it is bumping up against my pants, and I judge it. Focusing on the belly, in this case through thoughts of judgment, brings me more belly (which is not what I want!), because creation comes from our attention.

Focusing on the FEELING I want brings conditions and experiences that are on the frequency of that feeling.
Because that is how creation works: imagine it, and it is there.
There is no...

I am not alone. I am held.

connection Sep 27, 2018

These are two awarenesses that anchored in me more deeply last week, thanks to a bodywork session with the talented Tricia.

Shortly after we began, I asked my soul about the tightness along my right side–what do I need to know? I got: Move forward.

A part that felt afraid to move forward surfaced. This part felt she would not be caught, would not be held, there was no net.

Tricia asked if there was an experience I have had in which that occurred, in which I moved forward and was not...

We create as we sow

choice creating expansion Sep 21, 2018

This just came to me. It also came a few days ago.

Right now, it came in the midst of reflecting on a current situation with a healing practitioner and her practice... I have a balance of pre-paid services that I haven’t used and was imagining a conversation with her in which I ask for a refund, as I do not intend to use her services going forward.

Then that phrase came to me. We create as we sow.

What would I be creating if I approached her with that idea [of a refund]? Contraction?...

Getting out of the way

attunement creating flow Sep 18, 2018

Played the best game of putt-putt golf I have ever played, a few weeks ago.

In the past, I would look at the ball, look at the hole, look at the ball again, look at the hole again, and think something along the lines of, “come on, this isn’t that hard, I should be able to do this, let go, come on, I can do this, don’t think too much, see the ball go into the hole, everyone is watching me, I can do this, can I?, yes, I can do this, I really want to get it in...,” etc....
