It is Saturday afternoon. I have been unpacking, cleaning & rearranging since I woke this morning around nine. It feels good to have two rooms close to complete.
Before we packed up & moved into the new house, I honestly thought that Brawn & I didn’t have that much stuff. After all, I have been clearing & decluttering for some time now. I generally get rid of a garbage bag full of stuff a month & send it off to charity.
But as I began packing & moving I was hit with the shocking realization that Brawn & do indeed still have a lot of shit.
Last night I received an email from Zen Habits- it was about a woman who got diagnosed with MS which led to her letting go of always wanting more & ridding herself of most of her stuff. It was truly inspiring.
It made me think that I don’t want to have to be diagnosed with a life changing illness to have my wake up call.
Sure, I have been letting go of things for a while now. But there is still plenty more I can weed out of my life.
While rearranging my living room I found myself wanting to put less things on shelves & tables. Without all the items sitting around collecting dust, I have more breathing space.
Who doesn’t want that?!
Right now I am pondering the things in my life that exist & enrich my time on Earth & the things that exist & take away from creating a magical existence.
The big item on my plate is the Television, cable, & DVR.
Do I really need this?
Does it add to what I am working to create or does it take away from it?
Is it truly serving me?
I sure will miss the Ghost Whisperer >smiles<
How many of you have gone so far as to let go of the sacred thing that is, Television? How is your life better or worse without it there?
Hares Hoodie (yes I know there is a difference between a rabbit & a hare, but this jacket is awesome.)
I am a calendar junkie. Ask any of my friends- they'll tell you.
I really love handmade dolls for kids.
Apparently this year is also the year of the rabbit. Check out this awesome planner!
Wishing you a hopping good weekend,
PS. A BIG thank you to all of you ordered Goddess Card Readings from me. I am looking forward to getting those to you on Saturday. XO
It is official- we are moved into our new house. Brawn got home from work yesterday (after being out of town for a few days,) & surprised me with a bunny. I named him Basil. Basil the Bunny. He is super cute and cuddly. When we take him out of his box he either curls up on our shoulder or sprawls out in the corner of the couch. I am looking forward to getting to know him better.
If you click here & take a look to the right, you will see that I have posted the graphic for my e-course, ROOTED. Oh my goodness, I can hardly contain my excitement. Registration will begin January 1st and the course will begin in February. I am going to make it affordable so most everyone can participate. I can't wait to reveal all the goodies to you!

When Inauthenticity Creeps Up On You 12/15/2010
Today during my coaching call I learned that I censor myself around certain people because of some story I made up when I was 12. I do it now, in my 20's so that others won't feel uncomfortable when I show up as myself on an off day, a bad day or even in some cases, I censor myself because people are turned off by my enthusiasm & power.
This is me being inauthentic.
& who wants to be inauthentic anyway? It is exhausting. It takes more energy to adhere to what I think another person wants or expects of me that it does to just be myself. If there are people in my life who can't handle 'the real me' then it is something they need to deal with, not me.
I am taking a stand for my authenticity. I don't really know what it looks like yet. But I do know that I am going to be more self aware of when resistance shows up & tells me to keep my mouth shut or when I feel like I want to hide in my cave because no one will like the angry Megan Monique.
What does it feel like when you are being inauthentic? What do you put in place to shift this way of being?
Another Kick-Ass Deal For You 12/14/2010
Right before Thanksgiving I ordered one of these necklaces from Alice of Reiki Awakening. The stone that I got was hematite; it helps ground and reflect negative energies. I can honestly say that it is the only necklace I wear these days.
I find myself often grasping the stone when I am talking to someone or don't have my hands preoccupied. Having this piece of the Earth around my neck helps me stay present to what my intentions are. Not to mention I LOVE the healing properties of stones in general.
So here is the juicy part. The necklace is only $10. Yup- that's right.
So click here and get your stone of choice today. All of the meanings are listed on Alice's website. Happy Christmas.
Feel The Fear & Do It Anyway 12/13/2010
What a whirl wind my life has been in the past two weeks. It truly is mind blowing how quickly the Universe responds when we allow it to.
Don’t get me wrong, living in the mind frame of ‘it’s the way of The Universe,’ isn’t always easy. In fact, just as I was thinking this just as I read a tweet from Kate Northrup that confirmed my irritation.
At the end of the post I felt at peace.
Another breakthrough came when I was speaking with my roommate, Heather. The entire morning I was in a terrible mood. I was stressing over money. Feeling the whip-lash from the internal conversation of ‘not enough.’ & just like that over a box of pizza & a mason jar filled with Mr. Pibb- Heather allowed me to share that I was scared.
I did not know that being scared was what was making me so angry. I didn’t know that, being scared was what made the knot in my chest appear.
Dear Megan, it is okay to be scared.
I actually think this is the first time in my life that I truly know what it is like to feel scared. I have no boss. No form of steady, chunky income. It is just me, my ideas, my actions & my dreams literally coming to life.
Now is the time- what do I want?

The Timeline That Leads To Magnificents 12/10/2010
Within the last week & a half I have left a job, (that I was with for over a year & a half,) been foreclosed upon, left a workshop, took on a new job, found a new house, scheduled the movers, changed over electricity, water, gas & cable, lost myself, found myself, discovered a new plane of living, had break downs, had epiphanies & after all of that- I truly feel that it has only just begun.
Needless to say, this is the most intense mercury retrograde I have ever experienced.
Over all, I feel a sense of peace & love.
Of course, I am still hanging on for dear life. But the Goddess that lives within (Her name is Fiona- btw.) tells me to trust. That this is everything I asked for. I can’t SEE the bigger picture right now. But with ever jolt the Universe is shifting in my favor.
& that feels great.
With every moment of uncertainty & fear there is something for me to learn. Something to gain. A space for me to grow & evolve.
After all, what I asked for, so long ago- over & over again- was spiritual evolution that brought me to inner peace.
Every breath I take I am closer.

What It Means To Be Transparent & Vulnerable 12/07/2010
I am tired of hiding behind my computer screen. I have been honest with where I am at, but not completely transparent or vulnerable.
After my intuitive reading yesterday with Lori-Lyn I felt soft, safe, watched over & empowered. I felt more in touch with my feminine energy than my masculine; which was a change from the past week.
After the house I am renting went into foreclosure & the decision was made that Owning Pink & I would go our separate ways (financially,) I moved into my masculine energy.
I got bitchy. Tough. Irritable. I held everything inside until I couldn't anymore.
Last Saturday & Sunday I had a Landmark Education course that I was attending. I never made it to Sunday.
By dinner on Saturday night, I felt as though my cup was more than over flowing- it was flooding everything around me.
I decided to leave the course (not so easy for me to do.) I drove home & got vulnerable. I got honest with a good friend who would listen to me cry. I hugged Brawn & I got pissed off.
It was the first time I had allowed myself to be angry over the situation. The first time I was able to say, 'yes- I know that all of this is happening so that something better can come my way. I trust that. However- THIS STILL FUCKING SUCKS!'
Residing in positive thinking is beautiful. It allows you to see the light in everything. BUT, it is still important to really FEEL & express all of the shadows that exist within.
Releasing those fears is the easiest way to rid yourself of them completely. & conversation is one of the best methods of cleansing.
Yesterday Brawn & I drove up & down every street in Ennis looking at houses for rent. I have a good idea of what I want & what I don’t want now.
The amount of time we have to move out of this house is still up in the air & from what I understand- my landlord is still trying to ‘fix it.’ But today is the day of foreclosure- we shall see.
But something tells me I need to take matters into my own hands & move to a location where the security & state of being is at its best.
