An insight about love from my talk last week

“Love is just as much about our worth as it is about
allowing ourselves to just receive.
Jennifer Hough


I understood more deeply that asking “WHY” love is not happening for you is a way to stay endlessly stuck in a cycle of intellectual examination, and evidence for your perceived lack of deservingness.

WHAT IF… all it takes is curiosity on the adventure?

After all, Life has already landed the answers to HOW loved you are, and all the various ways that it can be expressed.

WHAT IF… all it takes is vigilance for the answers that are waiting for you?

Being conscious, present, and curiously looking for what has already been there!

Last week, I had an experience of just that with my sweetie, Adam… UGH!

My nervous system was trained in my childhood to look for what I was doing wrong, and how I was going to be judged next by the world outside of me. After all this work, you’d think that I’d seen the last of that habit. And yet, uh- uh… nope.

You might already know that Adam built this entire home studio in the basement for me. It’s to be used as a podcast room and presentation studio, with all the lighting, bells and whistles (prompters, sound proofing, green screen, awesome microphone, and wicked camera). Last Friday, I was presenting at Bernardo Moya’s “Love Event.” Did I use my new home studio? Nope.

I hadn’t truly realized what an act of love that home studio is; how it came from beyond 3D, as I wasn’t even asking for it.

So there I was, feeling excited and ready to speak for my talk in my own office. For the first time in a year, my sweetie wasn’t home, my dog was in my office, and what happens? Someone came to the door and rang the doorbell and my dog went nuts!Of course, this all happened in the 25-minute slot I had to share my heart with the audience of many from around the world.

By the way, you can’t hear the dog bark down in the home studio, as it’s sound proofed.

I am so clear that the reason that happened is that I hadn’t fully received this gift from Adam, because I was being my stubborn self. Alas. We learn.

Love is just as much about our worth as it is about allowing ourselves to just receive.

Sometimes my sweetie is a gruff, loud, serious dude, but when I came home, he brought my favorite chocolate, and the most beautiful card saying how sorry he was that I was so resistant to his gift to me.

Now, was it okay that the dog barked? Sure. Nothing ever really goes wrong. It shows that we are human, I am human and sh*t can happen. It threw me off for a minute, but then I got to share my dog, Mighty Mouse, with 2K people. He was a star!

And… if a dog isn’t an unconditional love Activation, I don’t know what is?!

Are you ever stubborn about receiving?

Do you go kicking and screaming sometimes?

If something doesn’t go according to plan, do you let love win anyhow?

Have you asked yourself the question, “How can love win?”

Just saying.

I so appreciate life for kicking my butt sometimes. Sigh. Be vigilant for the love today!

With love and an open heart,
Jennifer

Greetings for this new year!

Greetings for this new year!

This past year offered so much clarity and contrast, bringing ‘the dark into the light’, revealing it both in the world, and in my own life.

As we’re shutting the door on the closing year, let’s declare it complete, with great gratitude.

I know I’m so thankful for all that came to light, making me laser beam focused on this coming year. I’m looking at ways to assist humanity more creatively than I’ve ever considered before, and all while simplifying as much as possible. Phew!

Our choices are clear. We either continue arguing for sides and trying to fix the past, or start engaging, as the Heaven on Earth Construction Crew, towards finding solutions for our lives, communities, and the wider world.

Happy Merry Everything to you…

Happy Merry Everything to you…

After listening to the news of a dear friend really struggling at this time of year, and some news I was aware of another colleague who was deeply depressed, it became pretty apparent what I wanted to share with you at this intense time of year.

This time of year can be so beautiful and yet it can also be challenging as there are several coinciding significant events.

1. The Winter Solstice: which is an opportunity to look at our choices, restart, and go within to remember ourselves as we move into the next major phase of the year.

2. A major figure’s birthday: Jeshuah represents compassion and forgiveness in the world, Christ consciousness being about unconditional love.

3. The End of a Yearly Cycle and the Beginning of a New One: These combined focus points allow us access to the love needed to move through just about anything, if we so choose.

At the same time, everything that is incomplete, ready to be transmuted, or unnecessary for the year to come will surely reveal itself.

When things change…

When things change…

Well, my old backpack died after 13 years of climbing mountains, going to swim with dolphins, and chasing rainbows in Hawaii. It’s the beige backpack. I’m thinking of all the people whom we’ve taken on Wide Awakening Adventures and program trips (including you!)

Honestly, letting it go was hard as I happily remembered being with Cathy in Bimini, Vikki in Italy, Nika in Asheville, Amy in Abaco, Jenny in Uxbridge, and so many more special moments. That backpack was a constant companion for all of it. When I threw it in the trash, I really felt I should have a ceremony, SO I DID!

It feels like everything is up to leave this year … clearing the decks with the Winter Solstice, Jeshua’s birthday coming, New Year celebrations, and all.
