I’m at Wholefoods writing this. The house, and my office pull on me too much. I’m prone to carrying my husband, although I mostly gave that up for lent! (I’m not Catholic, but you know what I mean).

Why take time away? Why move venues for a while? Why break from your focus?

Here’s my experience with thousands of clients, but more importantly myself.

The statistics support much of what I am about to share:

1. Changing venues leaves space for creativity. New environment, new ideas.

2. Taking a break and not going TOO FAR down a wormhole allows for wider perspectives denied when totally concentrating on that single track.

3. Being pulled by your routine, things that you might find ‘easier’, things that might get you more immediate results definitely happens in a home office, or even in a normal office setting. If you’re committed to creating something of value, change the energy around you, perhaps visiting a coffee shop with art hanging on the walls and a calming space, or maybe somewhere with a real buzz, depending what you’re doing. The results can be amazing!

4. Physically, the body needs to move. Movement equals oxygen, and oxygen equals clearer thinking.

5. Have some boundaries with the ones you love about when they can come into your office; no yelling through the door, coming in when the door is closed, etc.

6. Have guidelines for yourself, too, around how long you’ll be inside working before going outside. Lack of vitamin D from sunlight affects sleep, bones and immunity and may seriously impact health and mood – did you know that?

I love changing venues. I love going clothes shopping even if I don’t buy anything. I love going to the forest or playing with the dog.

I always bring a voice recorder cause that’s when the best ideas come in!

I call this SLOWING DOWN TO SPEED UP and I love using this with visionary leaders because even if they do it for a week, life changes and productivity is amplified.

And I gotta live what I teach. So here I am, being totally energized and connecting with you.

With deep love,



I spent a good portion of my childhood trying to be enough.

I spent a good portion of my childhood trying to be enough.

Worthiness. I spent a good portion of my childhood trying to be enough.

How about you?

Every time you seek to prove your worth, you are coming from a place that presumes that you’re somehow lacking.

You were literally an etheric metaphysical being, who poured into a body in perfect timing. You are a meat suit flying through space at 55,000 miles per hour while miraculously housing a soul and spirit. You witness sunsets, mountain tops, births, deaths. You breathe the air that trillions of trees breathe out just for you!

Fears and freedom

Fears and freedom

The other morning, as I was pulling out an old plant that took up a lot of room and was on its way out, I heard the bell from the Baptist church down the road, at the same time as I caught a glimpse of the peonies I was planting to replace the old bush.

I love peonies. They remind me of Canada and my front yard. They take me to an emotional home place. That’s why I’m planting them. I keep imagining seeing the peonies while I’m sitting on my front porch.

At the gathering place down the road, the minister is impassioned and talks very loudly. Sometimes, he’s incredibly inspiring and I just stand outside on the road and listen, while at others when he talks about the challenging aspects of humanity, there’s fear within the church. I speak at many churches, so this isn’t about making church wrong, but rather the idea that most of humanity spends time finger-pointing.

My heart is so full of blessings…

My heart is so full of blessings…

After a rich and vibrant time in the Embodiment Workshop in Asheville, my heart is so full of blessings.

I’m so grateful for the participants, the TWA Team, and so incredibly blessed to have opulence everywhere around me in my garden. Not only for the lettuce, but the seeds for new lettuce. It’s truly overflowing …

I’m grateful for all the shifts and clarity that happened for both myself, and collectively, and wanted to share something with you…
