A perspective: On hurricanes, birth, and being better…

Storms are major reset points. A time to cleanse, a time to have compassion, a time to be present to the ways in which we are all the same, instead of arguing about the differences among us. With Hurricane Ian, we currently have before us yet another opportunity to exercise our ability to choose to be good, do good, and have humanity for another. I have friends who were in the thick of things, lost everything, and will have to re-build. They come from every walk of life.

Politics, points of view and opinion are constructs and frameworks through which to view the world. The heart is not a construct. The heart purifies the view when the heart is the eyes from which we are perceiving. As I went for a bike ride the other day, I saw a calf being born in the middle of a field within five minutes of leaving the house. The cow was cleaning the calf, as it tried to get up and walk. Love is an instinct, foundational to life.

As I turned around, I saw what I imagined to be the edge of the storm, the outermost clouds of hurricane Ian on an otherwise completely clear day. We will likely have some thunderstorms up here in the mountains, but I don’t mind. Isn’t it interesting how the miracle of birth activated my heart? Even storms can catalyze many of our hearts, even for the more stubborn of us who need to be shaken awake.

I remember when I had meningitis and almost died. I woke to find my boyfriend on one side and my former husband on the other, both holding my hands on either side of the bed. So much love coming from both of them. Their disdain for each other had disappeared. Amazing how a crisis has us transcend our differences!

Of course, we could just wake up, without the need for crises. But so far, we are doing so much too slowly for my liking. To my friends in Florida, I know there is help on the way, and I’ll be vigilant for the optimal kinds of help that I can offer.

Are the catalysts big enough yet? I, for one, have been catalyzed to lead for years. What about you?

I’m not interested in differences at all; I am only interested in solutions that work for all.

With love and an open heart,

Jennifer

Just because it’s hard, doesn’t mean it can’t flow…

Since the beginning of 2024, I have been watching myself going through a patch where everything that wasn’t handled, cleaned up or in alignment is coming up to leave, be healed or full circled.

And these are big things, not little things… my health, and realigning with business things and love-related stuff. Yep, three major areas.

It could be overwhelming if I judged it. And trust me, it’s a lot. And it’s very real.

So how to move through these times …

It seems scary to go through change…

It seems scary to go through change. For me, just as much as anyone else.The question is, which part is scared? It’s the part that has to die for the expanded version to become the new you, able to sustain the dream you’re dreaming.

Our true infinite soul never dies, so YOU are not afraid to die, but rather the part of you that feels comfy, familiar and predictable.

Somehow, for me personally, distinguishing between the true ME and the identities (aspects of my personality) that are trying to protect me gives me a little solace and lessens my need for courage.

Permanent shifts in your cells and what it takes…

Permanent shifts in your cells and what it takes…

The topic of shifting your default way of being, is near and dear to me because I realized I take it for granted that people fully understand it but have realized they don’t. I really appreciated a recent conversation with a member of our community. It brought home to me that most people don’t relate to permanent shifts because either they don’t believe they’re possible, or feel what they have is their lot in life.

Actually, this is where my parents were. I probably could do it a lot better, but I can’t have that, that quantum leaping thing. Do you know what I mean Aditya ?

When I look at people who effortlessly receive abundance, they seem to have the DNA of being able to dance with money in a way you’ve never experienced. How do you make that permanent shift?
