And So I Light A Candle…

and-so-I-light-a-candleFor the people standing at the crossroads…

Afraid to move forward

And afraid to ask for help

For the people who choose to suffer alone…

As parents stand by heartbroken, confused and helpless

And family and friends grieve

For the people sitting in the dark…

I offer a prayer of hope

And so I light a candle

And Then The Wall Spoke

I will never forget the moment when I heard the wall speak.

I was sitting in the waiting area of a spa waiting for my massage.

I was happy. I was excited. And then the wall spoke.

Deep sadness and depression filled my body as I heard a voice inside of my head state “I’m so sad I just want to die!” I was shocked at my sudden shift and wondered “where did this came from?”

A minute later my massage therapist greeted me and I went into the massage room where I shook off the momentary thought and sadness and went on to enjoy my relaxing massage.

Fast forward one month…I had the exact same experience as I sat waiting for my massage….Deep sadness and depression filled my body as I heard a voice inside on my head state ”I’m so sad I just want to die!”

Realizing that these were not my thoughts and not my emotions, I stared at the limestone wall. The limestone wall had absorbed the emotions and energy state of some unknowing client.

After I was escorted to the massage room and the door was closed, I told the massage therapist “I don’t care if you think I am crazy but someone emotionally and energetically dumped in your waiting area and as a result you will not have a business within the next 6 months unless you create scared space”. At that point I told him what steps to take and obviously he listened as upon my return a month later the waiting room was calm and quiet. Today, 4 years later, the waiting room has remained calm and quiet.

Multiple times this week, friends have asked me to teach more about creating sacred space within the home and work environments.  I’m taking this as a sign from the universe….stay tuned for this new offering.

A Change In Perspective…

Her Story:

She was born on an assembly line,

A yellow backhoe with a purpose of

Digging For Dirt.

When it came her time to perform,

They called her “defective”,

They called her “a lemon”.

With no place to call home,

She was sent to the boneyard,

She was sent to reflect.

One day, employees walked by her with a cause.

She gave them inspiration.

She showed them possibility.

They gave her new parts.

They gave her new paint.

She gave them faith.

She was displayed.

She was seen.

And the community rallied around her.

Now she travels across the country.

Raising awareness as her destiny

Digging for a Cure

Her truth:

“It’s not how you start, its how you end. I’m a backhoe, I thought my purpose was to dig for dirt like everyone else, but in reality my destiny is to dig for a cure.”

Sometimes a chance in perspective is all that is needed.

Week of Possibilities

blizzardA blizzard reminding me of the beauty of living a life filled with…

  • Love
  • Stillness
  • Gratitude

Fear and anxiety replaced with serendipitous moments filled with laughter and “aha” moments…

  • People are friendly
  • You are not alone
  • You don’t always get what you want, but you get what you need

Discovering my guilty shadow called “Control Freak” that believes I can control the uncontrollable…

  • Roads that are closed due to a blizzard conditions
  • Well maintained vehicles breaking down
  • Being available for everyone

Speaking of creating a new career filled with…tipi

  • Joy
  • Coffee talk
  • Laughter

Envisioning a new work environment…

  • Without walls
  • Without schedules
  • Without structure
