All I have to say is, “over-rated!” Bam, there I said it….

“Life never gives you too much; it only gives you opportunities to stop doing it all alone.”
Jennifer Hough

Sigh. My heart is so full. We had our first physical get together… first one in the last one-and-a-half years, and it was a divine doozy.

A huge deepening which I’ll get to, but first some context.

Fifteen years ago, I was with a boyfriend and all of my luggage on a Tube Station platform in London, UK. There were stairs in front of me. My boyfriend asked, “Want any help?,” to which I responded, “Nope, I can do it!” Then a stranger offered the same generous thing… and again I said, “I’m good.”

After hauling the bags down the stairs and standing there on the platform, a whole download happened and I started to get teary. What the heck was I thinking? Two lovely humans wanted to contribute to me and make my life easier, and I said “no.”

Then I realized that I had been doing that in my business, my relationship, my finances, and my family. I had been trained by life and my family to be so uber independent and have it handled. Yet I complained about how much I had to do, and how hard it was to do it all.

WE ARE SOCIAL ANIMALS… HELLLOOOOOO. WE ARE SURROUNDED BY EARTH ANGELS… HELLOOOOO!!

This weekend, my program assistant, Diane, for The Thriving Operating System- Level 2 program, had her flight cancelled. EVERYONE in the program assisted me, contributed, and just played to make sure I was supported in the most beautiful ways; the generosity in the room was palpable. And I think that Diane actually was in the perfect place with those online.

So, just in case you needed a little reminding today:

THE UNIVERSE CONSTANTLY REMINDS US WE ARE NOT ALONE: Don’t ignore those moments that guide you to the left. Pause when your numbers line up on the clock, or the speedometer. When you think of someone you appreciate, call them and tell them. When a little love note pops up on Facebook from someone who loves you; read it. The Universe always has, and will always have, your back. BUT MAYBE IT’S TIME TO LET SOME ACTUAL HUMANS IN.

Stay tuned for our emails this week about the power of community and the skills to truly thrive.

I love being humbled by life; don’t you?

Things are never as they seem…

Things are never as they seem. This picture is not a sunset but the view from Craggy Gardens in Asheville on Saturday night. It’s what the Northern Lights look like from afar down here in the South. So cool.

On Friday, I met with a dear client and friend who has serious PTSD; I have many clients who suffer with this. As there is an underlying sense of a lack of safety, people may bite or be abrupt. This may sometimes tip into what feels like meanness but is a form of self-protection.

Recently, I’ve been celebrating when I notice shifts. One, in particular, I don’t think I’ve ever celebrated or shared with you, so here goes!

This time, instead of engaging, trying to fix things, or trying to make my client feel better, I simply found neutrality. Sometimes I didn’t respond for days, or even weeks, and let it all breathe. I gave it space for higher levels to work it out. As always when there is spaciousness, it all comes back around to love.

Stay with me on this…

Stay with me on this…

‘Or betters’ present frequently when we simply remember ourselves as the embodied intention of everything we’ve ever lived in any life. They manifest when we remember our free will to choose, realizing our trajectory is the result of every past life, every desire, and every prayer you have ever prayed.

‘Or betters’ happen when you live like control is overrated. Understanding the resources of the omnipotent and omniscient Creation will deliver for you so far beyond anything your lovely (please don’t hate me) pea brain can intend is key. Your brain only accesses your history, the programs you learnt in school and paradigms you’ve created through the years, and who wants to ‘rinse and repeat’ that again?

Your greater Wisdom is constantly dancing with the trajectory you are on. You’re a living intention, without ever needing to use your brain to intend. Infinite Wisdom is in a dance with you, responding to your every thought and, perhaps ever more, to your actions. It’s responding to your life’s purpose. The thing is, you can’t mentally intend your way to an awesome life.

My two favorite words…

My two favorite words…

When our actions resonate with our purpose and we’re aligned with the Universe’s potential for us, it’s such an expansive feeling.

The feeling of expansiveness validates you are in flow.

The alignment with greater wisdom is translated through our body as feelings of ‘woo hoo’, ‘yes!’, goosebumps, or fun! It’s confirmation that we’re acting and thinking in line with our ‘highest and best’ life, using our skills and personality, creating in the most aligned way.
