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

I don’t talk about this much…

You know, we talk a lot about the physics of receiving and the physics of being in flow. We talk about falling in love with the mystery.

For a long time, I just wanted to push forward. Maybe it’s a dream you’re desperate to achieve, and you feel you just wanna push and make it happen? Then you learn about the Laws of Physics, or the Law of Attraction, or about meditation, whatever. You start using that and then you are thinking “I’m doing all the stuff, so how come it’s not happening?” You know?

I was really feeling a sense of urgency inside, calling me, telling me there IS something more. I was learning the Laws of Physics and beginning to put them into practice. It still felt like things were moving slowly. I knew things could move faster and I didn’t understand why they weren’t. Oh boy, I’d get so frustrated! Can you relate to any of this?

How is it that we can flourish through 2024?

How is it that we can flourish through 2024?

Flourishing through 2024 starts with understanding the laws of physics as they pertain to the intentions of people. Why is this significant and why will some people flourish while others don’t?

What was the theme of 2023 for you personally, and globally, in relationships, purpose and love? As you write down those themes, notice any problems or challenges which may be carried into 2024. Also, look at the themes playing out in the wider world, as they give context to what is yet to be completed.

It’s crucial to look at this, although most people don’t. By investing a little time, you’ll begin to see what’s going to influence the new year as it’s the contrast from the past which becomes the catalyst for what’s to come, helping you determine potential outcomes.

Stress – it’s actually pretty simple

Stress – it’s actually pretty simple

I have a lot to do, and I wish it was all done … but do I? Don’t I love creating? Did I forget that?

As I took a look at my Tedx talk, my slide deck for Tedx, prepping for the amazing workshop we’re running around completing 2023 and embodying our vision for 2024, seeing my parents, having Christmas with my stepdaughters and with three people in TWA sick right now … ahhhhhhh!

But is it all innately stressful? Or was I just judging the distance between what I could see was possible and what currently exists and that it might not get done? The implications of it not getting done? In reality, we could make our circumstances very dramatic, or step into flow.

Here are the choices if you want to step into flow:
