“Doing nothing is doing something.
Jennifer Hough

A key to thriving is remembering that doing this is actually important.

It’s ‘nothing’.

That’s the thing, doing nothing is doing something.I’m sure you’ve sometimes tried to keep pushing through a project when life is showing you the harder and longer you push, the more unproductive things get, right?

I’m so guilty of feeling invincible or, put another way, stubbornly carrying on instead of being present to what life is showing, or sometimes commanding, me to do.

The problem is we judge doing nothing. As a society, we overvalue being productive and making sure we’re achieving, creating a source of anxiety.

Having worked with many clients, I know visionaries are creators to varying degrees. We equate slowing down to somehow going off track, to something going wrong.

Sometimes, taking space is the only way to access the space between the atoms holding the ideas and inspirations we need which then quantum leap us forwards.

This week has been a tremendous example of that for me. I’ve been preparing for my TEDx Talk in Asheville, while still speaking with my coaching clients and while our business is going through massive shifts. There’s been so much preparation involved and, multiple times a day, I’ve realized I had to slow down.

Every time that I did that, inspiration came, including sharing this message with you. Pushing is overrated. It doesn’t get you a closer seat in heaven, I promise.

Taking space to enjoy, play and breathe several times per day, allows me to do so much more. YES MORE.

Most days what assists me is riding my bike or watching the sunset. I was taking space WHILE I was working too, that was ‘okay’ and necessary!

You can be a martyr and then die one day. Or you can actually take the time to be present to the alchemy that is this dance with Creation, find fulfillment and die.

You decide.

You probably know which option I choose.

The Laws of Physics support us only in our most amazing and meaningful life.

With love for you and this journey,




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…
