The idea for this group came to me in my dreams.
9 flowers & a Lilypad. Each flower is unique & special, but we all have one common ground - we were created out of love & we choose to live lives filled to the brim with magic. What that looks like is different for each of us.
The Lilypad is our meeting ground. A sacred space filled with unconditional love & trust. What happens on the Lilypad - stays on the Lilypad.
Each flower gets 20 minutes to bring their idea, delimma, or thought to the Lilypad & get feedback from the group on what they shared. This takes place over 2 hours once a month. Each participant will get a recording of the call for their review.
I believe that since we are all so in sync - what one person brings to the table, another will resonate with. In the end you are walking away with a wealth of ideas about how to make your next move.
The Lilypad is not area specific - you can bring your business to the table, your love life, family - it doesn't matter. You got thoughts, we got ideas. Register Here (only 3 spots left for April's call).
See you on the Lilypad,
I love you for what you were intended to be- not what you've become. - Ink the movie
On Sunday The Mister & I watched a movie called Ink.
At first it was hard to watch, difficult to follow & at moments I thought it would never end.
But as the last few chapters of the story began to unfold, we got a real grasp on who the characters were & what they represented. This sci-fi thriller that mostly confused me in the beginning left me with valuable lesson at the end of 107 minutes.
We are not alone. I am not alone. You are not alone.
There is divinely guided energy all around us, at all times. Guiding our lives when we ask for help & even when we don't - but sometimes, it speeds up the process if we do. Sometimes it is more than necessary that we simply, ask.
There is surrender & vulnerability in asking for help.
There is a current much greater than ourselves that allows us to be in sync with one another & the flow of the Universe.
It shifts our paths only to cross the way of another who might contribute to our journey & us to theirs.
We are protected. We are loved. We are cherished. We are guided.
You know that, don't you?

The Chosen One 03/29/2011
Sunday night/ Monday morning - I had a dream.
I was standing somewhere - in an opening with this divine being - maybe an angel - maybe not. Either way - this being was gifted & special, glowing even.
I remember him saying 'I will hold onto this for you, until you are ready'.
Maybe it was because of the movie I had just watched with The Mister, The Chosen One.
Or maybe it is because I repeatedly, knowingly choose to keep things in my life & take actions that I know contribute to the fog that clouds my vision & deny me my full ability to embrace my true power & gifts.
No matter the reason - the message came across loud & clear.
This being is holding onto my gift. Carrying it until I am ready to hold it fully myself.
Why are these Earthly experiences so necessary to hold onto? Sure they are enchanting at times - but what if I let them go? What am I afraid of? Who & what am I afraid of losing?
Or perhaps it is the fear of gaining. It can be scary realizing our full potential.
PS. What are you suppressing with Earthly experiences? Share here.
PSS. Here are some posts that caught my eye this week: Micro-forecast: March 28th - April 3rd, Fear, Resistance and All That Good stuff from Emilie Wapnick (video). Also my friend Brittany is doing an awesome soap giveaway on her blog.
In the morning I like to eat peanut butter toast - it makes my coffee taste better.
The other day I walked into the kitchen to grab the toaster, which usually rests inside the cabinet beneath coffee pot.
I opened the cabinet door- no toaster. I stood up & there it was. Sitting right beside the coffee pot. A place my eyes & mind had already visited, but some how overlooked.
My mind was so fixed on the idea that the toaster was under the counter, that I didn't even see it sitting there - right in front of my face.
It reminded me that when we have expectation & attachment connected to the outcome of something -anything really- it clouds our vision for what actually might be standing right in front of us.
Think about it. If you request that abundance come into your life, but you are certain abundance can only -ever look like "X", you might not see it if it shows up as "Y" because you were so fixed on the idea that it was "X".
You might even go so far as to deny that "Y" even exists.
Just when you thought it was you that wasn't any good at manifesting - you find out that it was just an idea you had that has been blocking your real power all along.
Not everything has to be labeled,
PS. Interested in receiving Reiki? Check out my friend Allie's services. Just had a session with her a few weeks ago & it was divine. Left me floating for hours. Plus she is super adorable & I love her. Cheers!
Lately I have been feeling a bit unmotivated. Detached from passion or clarity. Unsure & frankly - left with the sensation of floating more than anything else.
Floating from choice to choice, project to project, thought to thought with no real momentum or destination in mind.
Although the thought of continuous lingering is filled with contentment & lack of pressure, there is also no real, pure excitement and determination.
On Wednesday I made this mind map (featured in the above photo).
I wrote down all of the things about my business I love & ways I want to expand them.
I wanted to invite you to create a mind map of your own. Only place the things that excite you & allow the rest to fall away - even if at first, only on your map.
My motto as of lately - go with what feels good. Why do anything else?
In choosing that motto- good things find me, even if I am just floating by for the time being.
Assumption- the rat bastard that creates barriers in relationships.
The poison that seeps in like a disease whose only mission it to deteriorate your love from the inside out.
A trap that is easy to fall into. Our ego feeds its need. Our ego tells us we are right to assume. It is okay to go along with what we think we know about what goes on in another person's head.
But really- it's just a guess. Even if you have known someone for more than 10 years & have the ability to predict what they say, do or be - it is a poison to assume.
However, you are in luck. The simple antidote for the illness that is assumption is free- no charge at all (if you choose to leave your ego out of it, of course).
Yes. It is that simple. Stop your mind from wandering with crazy stories of could, should or might be. Every single person walking this Earth has their very own unique perception of life - it is silly to think we know. It's silly to assume.
Ask. What are you waiting for? Go on, release yourself from the bars of your mind!
Be free! Frolic in the joy that is HONESTY.
It's the part of life I love most... 03/24/2011
I fell in love with this image today from Violent Dreams. For a long time I made myself wrong for wanting to always be moving & exploring. I now know it is part of who I am. Part of my creativity & passion. It's the part of life I love most. Movement. Freedom. Exploration. Discovery. Learning. Expanding. Growing. Creating. Being. Getting lost. & found.
A new painting, new ideas & letting go... 03/23/2011
Something new is brewing within me.
I can feel it bubbling to the surface. I can feel the ideas I was once attached to loosening their grip.
& allowing something new to bubble to the surface.
I feel Life Illumination Coaching fading and something new showing up in its space.
Although it doesn't have a name yet, I can tell it's bright & shiny.
Something involving a group of people. Sharing ideas. Learning from one another. Growing together. Expanding together. Becoming. Together.
Do you feel warm & fuzzy too?
PS. I am going to start sending out weekly meditations to my Enchanted Intention subscribers- check it out!
Dear Mood, what's up with you today? 03/21/2011
I woke up this morning at 7:00 a.m. after coming out of a dream that left me more than unsettled. The feeling was worse than that, it was- silencing. Eerie. Uncomfortable. Unfamiliar & a whole lotta bleh.
After writing my Enchanted Intention for the day, I decided to go back to sleep.
When I woke up the feeling was still there. Still lingering in my being.
I tried a few different things to shake the buzz-kill like laying in the yard on my grandma's quilt amongst my newly planted flowers, talked to the Angels & asked for help, guidance, direction with my Goddess Cards. I reached out to a Twitter friend & even worked on some new art for my shop.
What's interesting is that although I was foggy all day, I kept moving & trying new things to get out of the funk.
At the end of the day the weirdness didn't go away entirely, but I got a lot accomplished while working through this mood. Asking my mood questions helped a lot.
I believe I even brazed the top of what is at the core of this funk: Bring yourself back to passion. Back to what makes you come alive. That is where success comes from - in the golden spots.
This will send you a fresh copy of my blog every time I write a new post and update you on special offers.
