Ukraine…what you can do.

“Be against nothing, but for something meaningful.
Act accordingly.

Jennifer Hough

There has been so much going on and I have been watching my heart hurt a little. I’ve seen so many posts asking, “Why?” “Why would such a thing as war even exist, and how could that happen in the world with so many waking up?

I was speaking to Anna Kowalska (my most recent interview) about her family in Poland. She shared some stories with me that truly moved me about people coming across the border and the struggles people are having, as well as the generosity that is showing up.

I’ve been thinking about what it is that I’d like to communicate about these times of great polarity, in a way that might help us each find peace, but at the same time not being okay with what’s happening. It’s okay to not be okay. In fact, all that you are doing when you feel the “not okay-ness” is you are acknowledging that there is another way. Your internal dissonance is not wrong, so don’t try to “fix” it; it doesn’t need fixing.

You are right; something is seriously sub-optimal when one needs to hurt another unconsciously in order to feed the Ego, whether it is with a world leader or a three-year-old..

So that’s where we begin.


The added polarity is happening because we are being asked to make a choice. The choice is to be a victim of our lives, or to be true Agents of Awakening for ourselves and the ones we love. Do we choose a different world? Do we know what we know about consciousness without doubt? Are we willing to act from what we know? Will we treat others and ourselves differently as a result? Will we be relentless champions of ourselves, our communities and our vibration? This is clarity time for knowing what you know… and acting accordingly.

Your piece of the puzzle matters in this world, whether there is a war or not; it’s just more poignant right now. The time to ask yourself deeply is before you.

THE ONLY SOLUTION THAT I SEE: Be the change. Understanding each other more deeply and facing forward in creating the world we desire are all there is to do. This is in your families, in your city, in your communities, and by connecting with friends and having meaningful exchanges to understand each other, and doing things that expand upon common goals (instead of arguing about the things we don’t have in common).

We are the microcosm of the greater macrocosm.

WHAT AM I GOING TO DO TODAY: Much in the spirit of our Agents of Awakening Community that is developing, I will be taking jars of organic jam that Adam and I made, and writing a love note to 10 neighbors, just to say I want to spread a little goodness in the world in these time of people feeling so separate, with my number to connect anytime. Maybe we’ll even organize a little barbecue (in Canada, for my USA friends, that means a cookout) for the neighborhood.

I know what happens when we see fellow human beings suffer. We feel powerless. So, the most important thing to do is SOMETHING!

Be against nothing… and for something that speaks to the common good.

With love and an Open Heart,



BAM! Yep, this happened.

BAM! Yep, this happened.

I had a client ask me last night, “When are all these challenges and triggers going to end so we can get back to normal?”. Newsflash. This is our new normal. So much change is being catalyzed these days, and if you get into emergency mode, it is easy to want to protect yourself and others, to hide, to “carry” your family, or those you love or even yourself.

Here’s something to consider this morning: Just because you’re there for others, doesn’t mean you are necessarily helping them. It depends on whether you’re giving from your overflow and your inspiration, or you are “carrying” them. It may even be that you’re not authentically trying to help them; maybe, just maybe, you’re trying to make your own self feel better because you don’t like the way they’re being or behaving.

I have most certainly carried people I care about at some point in my life. It’s as though I thought that I had the power to make someone else happy. It is so clear to me at this point that no one can make anyone else happy. In fact, doing that can leave the other person(s) powerless to do it for themselves.

Are you leaving space for the miraculous?

Are you leaving space for the miraculous?

I’m not sure if anyone ever truly gets that I am definitely in the programs that I teach, even though I am facilitating. And I am! Half the things that get discussed are perfectly suited for helping me find more freedom, meaning, and flow, too. Saturday’s Get Out of Your Own Way™ program was no exception.

Sunday I woke up with my head stuffy, feeling heated, and an achy body. Uh oh. Adam just had the c-flu; maybe I have it, too?

My word for the year, and…

My word for the year, and…

I was just wondering why Spaciousness was my word this year.

We are now almost half way through the year (can you believe it?) and so much is up for renewal!

Take my body for instance. I notice immediately when it is in Overwhelm, because my cravings go up, neck tension starts, I get a little reactive, and my creativity goes out the window. If I partake in Overwhelm long enough, I even gain weight… ugh. My body is a perfect barometer of where I am.

These five symptoms are representative of about 15 other symptoms of adrenal fatigue, and even a sluggish thyroid. At first when I feel the symptoms, I hear myself saying, “Really?” Then I realize and remember that I have a deep knowing of how to bring myself back to the state of energized inspiration.
