A Case of The Winter Blahs

35-IMG_5343

“Some days you just have to create your own sunshine!”

~Unknown


This winter has been kicking my *ss. I haven’t been physically ill (thank goodness), however between the not going somewhere warm for vacation, the ever changing weather (snow, fog, rain, floods, ice), the cloudiness, and lack of interaction with people due to road conditions (brought on by weather), I’ve had a bad case of the winter blahs. And this week, as the blahs reappeared, I found the old familiar stories creeping back into my life.
Stories around…

How things will never work out, so why do I even bother trying! Something unexpectedly always happens and as a result it’s just going to fail!

I call this my “Whiney Robin” story. My story of time running out and failed expectations. What was interesting is what happened every day as this story was hanging around with me….

I started getting visits from interesting creatures daily.

  • Eagles every where (in the sky and on the ground right in front of me),
  • Unicorns appearing in every store in Rockford,
  • Stink bug that sat next to my wine glass (never seen one of those before),
  • Mosquito that landed on my hand at 8am (I wasn’t bit and it’s winter),
  • Playful raccoons on Loran Road (not the Kent Emporium),
  • Scorpion appearing in an early Friday am dream, and

Each animal was pointing me forward through this week of blahs.

The Eagle reminded me to take a higher broader view of the situation. The Eagle has the ability to soar to heights other birds merely dream of. The Eagle is a powerful animal totem that offers lessons about looking closely at the most minute of details in order to see life from a broader perspective.

The Unicorn is all about opening up to the infinite possibilities and that infinite possibilities surround you and are available to you at all times. Many times we can not see possibilities abound, or even exist, especially when we are stuck in an old story. Unicorn give you the eyes to see the possibilities and the wisdom to take advantage of them.

The Stink Bug was aiding me with clarifying my dreams, visions and insights. Instead of whining about the current state of everything that is out of my control, I started to work on something I could control…my Inspired Action card deck.

The Mosquito was reminding me to listen to the lessons I’m currently experiencing. She demonstrated the art of timing: movement and progression, rest and relaxation. There is a season for everything and Winter (whether I like it or not) is the season of rest. She pointed out the patterns in my life (and my head) that I’ve been dwelling on so that I could become aware of them and start changing the story…

How to create a story that makes me feel nourished and fulfilled once again.

The Raccoons playing on Loran Road were reminding me to go out and have some fun and stop taking everything so seriously. And that is my #1 priority this weekend!

The Scorpion dream letting you know that its time to get rid of the old story, accept the situation, and make room for something new. Basically reminding me of the need to go through the three-step process of denial, acceptance, and finally moving on.

And this is what I teach through my one-on-one coaching programs and workshops. I teach you a set of tools so that you can….

  • Spot the old story (and stop denying it exists),
  • Name the old story (accept it), and
  • Re-write the story (move on).

My personal goal is to…empower you to create a heart based life on your own terms.

Are you curious about some of the tools I teach? I have created a new Facebook group and will be posting daily “Inspired Action” prompts through Easter, as part of my …

Making It Stick

35-IMG_5343

“Stick with people who pull the magic out of you and not the madness!”

~Unknown


Since the start of 2018, I’ve been listening to a lot of old stories – my own and others. Old stories around friendship, love and business (community, connection, and collaboration)….

  • I have to do it all, all alone
  • I have to know it all, all by myself
  • I can’t ask for help, I can’t accept help

These old stories started sounding like those familiar songs you hear on a Top 40 Radio station. You know the songs, the heart wrenching songs that make your heart ache and tears flow as they are played over and over again on the radio. Songs that are played so much on the radio that at one point you reach a breaking point, change the station and say..

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH

So it became rather comical when I realized on Monday that Valentines Day and Lent were on the same day this year. The last time this happened was in 1945…yikes!!!
I’m not a religious person, but I do know enough about the Lent season that it starts on Ash Wednesday and ends on Easter (40 days). Traditionally Lent season is a time of self-examination and reflection. Many people give up something for Lent. Some examples that jump to my mind are chocolate, sweets, and alcohol…not happening! However for Lent 2018, wouldn’t it be great if we could each pick an old story that stops us from pursing the heart based lives and businesses that we want to create and….

CHANGE IT!

For me, I want to lose the old story where…

I can’t create the life I want and also live in Kent.

and replace it with the new story…..

I can create the life that I want and also live in Kent.

I can’t tell you how many times people have told me over the course of the past few years that…

  • It will never work. You need to leave Kent.
  • It can’t be done here. You need to sell the Kent Emporium.
  • There is no one here for you. You need to move to a large city to find friends and love.
  • I don’t belong here. You need to buy a house with a picket fence.

Hearing these phrases over and over again from people creates a kryptonite reaction in me. I start to second guess myself, I become paralyzed with self-doubt, and then I stop moving forward and get frustrated and angry.
But for Lent 2018, I’ve decided to give up this old story, face my kryptonite (weaknesses, Achilles’ heel) and create a new story. The key to creating a new story is to take small actions every day, which is why I’ve chosen Lent to change my story.

40 Days to Make It Stick!

As a part of my 40 day practice, I have created a new Facebook group. Within this Facebook group, I will post small actions that can be taken day-by-day. If you would like to follow along and participate, please join here.

What old story would you like to give up for Lent?

What new story would you like to invite into your life?

The 6AM Surprise

35-IMG_5343

“Life is full of surprises and serenity. Being open to unexpected turns in the road is an important part of success. If you try to plan every step, you may miss those wonderful twists and turns. Just find your next adventure – do it well, enjoy it – and then, not now, think about what comes next.”

~Condoleeza Rice


Last week I wrote about receiving a “confirmation” sign while having an in-depth discussion around healing and chakras next to an animal totem picture while attending an annual Wine and Chocolate Tasting event.

So here is the rest of the story…

Earlier last week, I was jolted awake at 4am by a rather comical nightmare of sorts. In this nightmare, I was teaching a workshop on Spirit Animals at another facility (The Nest). In the nightmare, nothing at the workshop went right.

  • I was running late;
  • There was too much material for a 1.5 hour workshop;
  • I forgot some of my equipment;
  • The sound system would not work;
  • The computer would not work;
  • The list went on and on and on.

This comical nightmare of sorts started to get me thinking about the actual “real” upcoming workshop and how I needed to be more prepared. Meaning…while laying in bed I found myself creating backup plan after backup plan in my head for every scenario that might go wrong. And in the middle of assembling my 10th mental list, I found myself suddenly jumping to another subject….future workshops. What types of workshops should I do in the future? When should I do these workshops? I felt like squirrels were running about in my head. Thank goodness I finally fell back asleep at around 5am.

At 6am I woke up to the sound of an alarm clock. As I opened the bedroom door, something brushed against my leg. Since both the bedroom and the hallway were dark, I had no idea what it was. All I knew was…

It didn’t feel like one of my cats.

So I turned on the bedroom light, completely opened my eyes, and turned my head, only to see…

the worlds biggest raccoon standing next to my bed!

I’m not sure which one of us screamed first. So I completely opened the bedroom door and stepped aside as the raccoon ran down the stairs and out the cat door.

Needless to say I was pretty shook up by the 6am event as Aslan the cat stood in the hallway with that “What’s wrong with you?” look.

When I walked into the kitchen, I was expecting so see all of the cat food gone. Again I was rather surprised. The only thing the raccoon ate was the cat treats. Now the Kent raccoons have champagne tastes? When did that happen?

Once the excitement of the morning wore off, I wrote down my list of workshop ideas that I created between 4am and 5am. I then started to assemble the equipment and the final notes for the upcoming weekend workshop. As I assembled the final notes, I realized that 1.5 hours truly was not enough time for the Spirit Animal workshop scheduled at The Nest (and maybe there was some truth in the nightmare). As I was wrestling with how to squeeze everything into 1.5 hours, I was notified that the workshop was going to be canceled due to lack of registered attendees. I was actually relieved as I didn’t want people to have a bad experience. So I sat down and retooled the workshop and made it a 4 hour workshop (details below). I also took the crazy ideas I had between 4am and 5am and have created an entire 2017 workshop series (details below).

Since last weeks’ 6Am surprise I did a little research on the symbolism of raccoons and discovered that I have infused raccoon medicine into my workshop series:

Unmask your talents

Climb to new heights

Be curious and playful

Explore your options

Dreaming up great ideas at night

Are you ready to dream up great ideas at night?

Standing At The Crossroads

35-IMG_5343

 “Growth is uncomfortable because you’ve never been here before – you’ve never been this version of you. So give yourself a little grace & breathe through it.”

~Kristin Lohr


2017 was a big transitional year for myself and so many people that I have spoken to. Everyone had the same story….

Learning to let go

I had to let go of relationships, a company, and a lifestyle that no longer fit in order to make space for something new to come in. Letting things go without out knowing the bigger picture is rather scary (to say the least). Especially when we grew up in a culture where everyone wants to know your plan. And when people press you for the plan, you know in your heart….

I have no plan!

I didn’t realize how much baggage I let go of since 2006 and how many times I had stepped into the unknown, until a dear friend and I were discussing music this past week and I asked the question “What is your favorite song?” I was surprised when I received a technical response…”Depends on the key”. But then again, what do you expect when you ask a musician that question!!!!

So I found myself trying to pin down my own favorite song. As I went through my play list, I started to realize that every one of my favorite songs told a story of my own life and learning to let go and step into the unknown without a plan…

Comfortably Numb/Pink Floyd: 2006 – When I recognized that I was miserable and in denial about the life I had created.

Another Brick In The Wall/Pink Floyd: 2007 – When I decided I was “done” and moved to Canada!

Candy/Iggy Pop: 2008 – While living in Canada, rediscovering the healer within me after keeping it buried for 20 years. Plus I saw Iggy live in concert!

Human/The Killers: 2009 – While living in England, I learned to surrender to the unknown by putting my life into the hands of a Garim GPS system, plus realizing that life is an adventure. Nothing says adventure like learning to drive on the wrong side and encountering roundabouts ever couple of miles.

Hotel California/Eagles: 2010 – 2017 – Spending 7 years at my last employer! What can I say? Was this heaven or hell? Hmmmm……

Life Is A Highway/Tom Cochrane: 2017 – Stepping into the unknown of new beginnings of a new company, a new career, a new travel schedule, and a new office (working from home).

Roll Me Away/Bob Seger: January 2018 – I was walking through Hartford CT airport at 5am on a Saturday morning (on my way back home) and I spotted a crossroads sign in the airport. As I read the sign, I thought of Bob Seger’s song Roll Me Away…

I could go east. I could go west. It was all up to me to decide.

Since I saw that sign at the airport, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about my healing crisis, where I should go next, and what I should do. And last night while attending an annual Wine and Chocolate Tasting event, I found myself having an in-depth discussion around healing and chakras. Midway through the discussion, my friend pointed out the animal totem picture hanging on the wall next to us.

Just then I saw a young hawk flying
And my soul began to rise
And pretty soon
My heart was singing

Who knew that standing at the crossroads and thinking of the song “Roll Me Away” would be the prelude for a sequence of events that unfolded throughout the month. Sometimes when you are at the crossroads, you just have to take a leap of faith and follow the signs. Stay tuned.

What choice would you make it you really believed in your dream?

What does your soul want to create?

A Moment of Stillness

35-IMG_5343

Accept — then act.

“Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you have chosen it. Always work with it, not against it.”
~Eckhart Tolle


After a few rocky weeks, I found myself this week wanting to spend every night on the sofa and binge watch the TV show “Frankie and Grace” on Netflix. If you haven’t watched the show, I highly recommend it. Netflix just released Season 4, and I spent every night watching the episodes and laughing. And hence, why I’m late on writing this blog.
At first I tried to resist the need to rest and relax. I told myself old stories of how…
I should be more productive!

I have commitments!
I have deadlines!

and my favorite old story…I’m procrastinating again!

Funny thing, when I stopped listening to my old stories and instead just settled into the fact that there is a season for everything and this month was my season of rest…everything shifted. Without applying any energy or effort, the next steps for the Kent Emporium and my coaching/mentoring services just started to flow to me via conversations. As I listened to others tell me their own stories, it was like listening to kindred spirits. Their passion and desire to push forward with creating new lives and businesses however lacking the clarity and physical energy to do anything but just rest. Mother Nature hibernates in January, so maybe we should just follow her lead and…

Enjoy the stillness
