Stress – it’s actually pretty simple

“STRESS is caused by judging the distance between
what is and what you wish would be.

Jennifer Hough

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:

1. Change what is by resolving it, taking action, finding playmates to help, and playing music the whole time, just for the fun of it.

2. Change what I wish for so that it’s easier, more pleasant, more do-able. I could also change the timing.

3. Reduce the amount of importance I am placing on this issue (as it is not the issue), and relax a little leaving space for answers to appear by going for a walk.

And then, whichever solution I choose, do it with reverence, gratitude and a pep in my step, knowing that making the decision with confidence already has the universe leaping to contribute to the flow.

Coming up this Saturday, December 30, 2023 and Saturday, January 6, 2024 we’ll be hosting a a powerful new program: RESET AND RENEW FOR 2024 ~ CLEAR THE DECKS AND FUTURE ACTIVATE YOUR YEAR WITH CONFIDENCE as a way of completing the year, clearing the decks and truly being able to celebrate 2024 so you experience flow and confidence moving into a solution-rich year. Let’s live the dream that’s dreaming us together!

I’d love to hear your thoughts about stress, about your past year and the year to come!

With all my 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…
