Feeling unmotivated or exhausted? {Finding Joy In The Journey}

In a culture that encourages you to go-go-go and push-push-push,

~Robin Rosenstiel

How have you been feeling lately? Unmotivated? Exhausted? Overwhelmed? I hear you!!! Everyone who visited me at the Farmers Market last Saturday for their 1-minute(ish) tune ups had the same story…so you are not alone. Below is my current recommended “To-Do” list for July:

My “To Do” List When Feeling Unmotivated and Exhausted:

  • Unplug
  • Eat Well
  • Stretch
  • Relax
  • Get Rest
  • Be Patient

Unbroken {Finding Joy In The Journey}

Congratulations, you have successfully mad it to the end of May. Welcome to level 6 of Jumanji.

~Dan D. Facebook feed

When I saw the above quote in Dan’s Facebook feed, I laughed. As a matter of fact, I laughed really hard! Why? Because it’s so true….

  • Jan: Australia Fires
  • Feb: Kobe helicopter tragedy
  • Mar: Coronavirus and worldwide shelter-in actions
  • Apr: US economy tanks, Murder Hornets, and UFO’s are real
  • May: George Floyd, Protests, and Riots

So what does the movie Jumanji have to do with the current state of the world? Like the characters in the film, each of us has been thrown into the “jungle” with no established playbook. Through each challenge, each character in the group discovers their strengths and weaknesses and learn how to work together as a team in order to reach their goals. And through every crisis thrown at them, each character in the group discovers…

The courage they always had in order to confront their fears and unlock their potential!

Are you ready to connect to your potential? Below is the June Full Moon video (click on the picture) I created to help you connect with your emotions and discover….

What does being UNBROKEN mean to you?


Do you need assistance in creating your own “jungle” playbook this summer?  I have 4 offerings that are available in-person or via Zoom:

Energy Reboot: 1-on-1 60 minute In-Person session

Deep Dive: 1-on-1 90 minute In-Person/Zoom session

Infinite Possibilities: 1-on-1 IN-Person/Zoom 3 month program

Soul’s Calling Circle: Group In-Person/Zoom 3 month program

Obstacles – From Challenge To Gift {Finding Joy In The Journey}

“OBSTACLES do not prevent you from following your dream.  They prepare you for it!”

~Robin Rosenstiel

Last week I mentioned that we are currently in a Mercury Retrograde setup phase. The MR setup phase is the Universe’s way of gently showing us what old story we need to become aware of in order to release during the Mercury Retrograde. I reviewed my daily journal notes for the past week and saw an “early” underlying theme for myself….

External Obstacles

For the past week, there has been one external obstacle after another. The short list….

  • My sister returning to the hospital as a result of her unstable body chemistry.
  • Data not available as scheduled, so I struggled to meet a deadline.
  • New computer & new software technology, resulting in a lot of internal resistance

And the kicker that pushed me over the edge….

Cats tracking muddy feet throughout my clean house.

External obstacles are a common part of life. However, the question is…

How do you react to external obstacles?

Do you see obstacles as…

  1. a puzzle to solve?
  2. an opportunity to grow?
  3. a threat?
  4. a reason why you won’t succeed?

I got curious about this question. So I sat back and became the observer of my own life, and I’m embarrassed to say – I saw my pattern:

1. A reason why I won’t succeed! I immediately always jump to my “Chicken Little” story. I get discouraged and find myself saying “Here we go again the sky is falling so Idon’t even know why I bother pursing my dream.”

2. A threat. I get angry as my scapegoat story appears and I envision myself getting yelled at and blamed, even though I have no control over the obstacle.

3. An opportunity to grow. After listening to my favorite self-critic, Judge Judy, I finally stop worrying about trying to controlling external obstacles outside of my control.

4. A puzzle to solve. After all of my internal drama is resolved, I can finally look at the external obstacle from a different perspective and realize that I have a choice when it comes to external obstacles.

Is it my job and responsibility to fix other people’s problems?

After I recognized and sat with this pattern of “trying to control and fix external events completely outside of my control”, I realized how much stress I had been holding in my body for the past week (including odd aches and pains in my feet). Once I realized that the world was not going to end if I choose to not take responsibility and actions for others’ issues, the stress left my body and I saw the gift in the external obstacles…

I’m choosing to say NO to being an emotional sponge for others when external obstacles appear!

As far as the muddy cat tracks, that is totally my issue, but I’m sure I will come up with a creative solution.

Curious about what stops you from following your dream and bringing your talents and gifts into the world? Check out my new February Full Moon Sound Journey (below). It’s all about connecting to the obstacle that stops you from SHINING!

Why Is It…{Finding Joy In The Journey}

“Give yourself permission to say NO without feeling guilt, mean, or selfish…be at peach with your decisions.”

~Stephanie Lahart

Why is it always the same people that…

  • complain but offer no solutions?
  • make excuses and blame others?
  • create drama and expect others to solve their problems for them?
  • make themselves feel superior by making others feel inferior?

Why do you keep them around?
Maybe it’s time to just say NO!

Robin…The Vampire Slayer

“Bottom line is, even if you see ’em coming, you’re not ready for the big moments. No one asks for their life to change, not really. But it does. So what are we, helpless? Puppets? No. The big moments are gonna come. You can’t help that. It’s what you do afterwards that counts. That’s when you find out who you are.”

~ Joss Whedon – Buffer The Vampire Slayer TV Series

I woke up last Sunday morning from a nightmare of sorts. In this nightmare, my house was filled with vampires. In every room and around every corner, there were vampires. As soon as I slayed 1 vampire, another vampire would appear. I was like Buffy The Vampire Slayer. When I awoke, I felt exhausted and depleted. And the first words that came out of my mouth…

Cr*p…here comes the holiday season!

I’m sure you can relate. A season where we are suppose to be filled with joy and excitement but really deep down inside we are filled with tension and stress…augh!!!  Let’s be honest , it has taken me years to recover from my own childhood traumas around the holidays. I’m sure these are the same traumas that all families share…

  • The yelling and screaming matches
  • The disappointments
  • The missed expectations
  • The family member(s) who suffer from depression and mood swings

For the longest time I avoided the holidays with a passion…there was just too much drama. But over time I learned how to slay these holiday vampires by creating new heart-felt holiday traditions. I started with what made me happy….

Community, Connection, Conversation

And from that I have slowly introduced the following new traditions into the mix…

  • Friendsgiving (11/22)
  • Black Friday Paint and Pour (11/23)
  • New Years Community Fire (1/5/19)
  • Adult Easter Egg Hunt (TBD 2019)

Are you ready to start a new holiday tradition?

If you are in the area, stop by the Kent Emporium Thursday or Friday and spend some time with our community at Friendsgiving or the Paint and Pour (details below)…I would love to see you!

Are you ready to turn your dreams into reality?
Are you ready to SHINE?

Schedule a quick 15 minute discussion and we can discuss the next best step for you.

Embracing Flawsomeness


“Noboby is perfect, so get over the fear of being or doing everything perfectly. Set your flawsome self free!”

~Robin Rosenstiel

This has been the summer of letting go. Letting go of…

  • what work should look like
  • what my business should look like,
  • what life should look like,
  • what friendship should look like,
  • what love should look like,
  • what my house yard should look like, and especially…

What my house should look like!

Let’s face it…my beautiful 2nd floor is currently a train wreck! It always amazes me how much I learn from nature and especially cats. But this time it has been four kittens that wrecked havoc in my life and taught me to just let go and embrace my flawsomeness.


(adj.) an individual who embraces their “flaws” and knows they’re awesome regardless.

Good thing I’m losing my grip on wanting everything to look perfect, since the flags are marked outside the front of the Kent Emporium, and the flags are marked in back of the Kent Emporium, and no one seems to know what the plan is. Will the sidewalk be dug up? Will the back driveway be dug up? Who knows!

All I do know is that I’m having a Tribe Appreciation Party on August 25th, so expect it to be flawsome!

The details are below. Hope to see you there!

What do you need to let go of so that you can be flawsome?

Are you ready to let go of an old story and create a new story?

Based on my July reset, I’m limiting my August openings to 4 people.

Living In The Spiral


 “The path isn’t a straight line; it’s a spiral.  You continually come back to things you thought you understood and see deeper truths.”

It’s official – I have survived what started out as Whac-A-Mole Week and turned into Manic May. So I won’t be needing that hot pink straight jacket or the sparkly helmet after all. Thank goodness!!! There were moments when I found myself starting to go down the slippery slope of beating myself up for allowing my calendar to get totally out of control (lets be honest – I have no one to blame but myself). But whenever I started down that path of self loathing, I would ask myself the following question:

What is the gift in this?

 And this is what I discovered…

I have changed! When life throws me a curve ball I no longer drop my selfcare program.

Historically I was raised to put others’ needs before my own needs. It isn’t a good or bad approach to life as it does serve a purpose at times. For example: I was raised on a farm and even when I wasn’t feeling good, I was still required to feed the cattle every morning and night. This is just part of the farming work ethic. After I left the farm, I continued to follow this model which led me to not having firm boundaries, over committing, and thus finding myself worn out and exhausted. Over the years I have learned to say NO to over committing and reclaiming my boundaries, but sometimes life still throws me a curve ball. Personally I’m starting to think it is a test – and May was one of those “test” months for me.

Throughout May, I continued to:

  • Schedule massages
  • Meditate
  • Eat healthy
  • Get plenty of sleep
  • Exercise daily
  • Attend personal and business coaching sessions
  • Make time for my tribe of friends
  • Make time for myself by relaxing and working on mandala art

I learned to stop being so rigid with myself and instead I learned to go with the flow and be flexible with my self-care approach.  So the next time you find yourself repeating an old spiral story, stop and pause and ask these questions:

Am I putting everyone’s needs before my own?
Do I put myself last when life throws me a curve ball?

Are you ready to put yourself and your self-care first this summer? Join me June 16-17 for a full weekend of self-care as we explore the Lower Chakras:

  • Get Set For Success: Connect with your Power Animal and your Chakra Animal Totems
  • Get Vision: Determine where you are stuck in an old story and how to shift and create a new story that lights you up
  • Set Your Compass North: Your Body Is Your Compass. Learn to decode your body
    messages as you take steps towards creating your new story
  • Get Real: Create positive relationships that support you and your new story
  • Boost Your Power: Take care of yourself and discover your joys
  • Get Out Of Your Own Way: Identify your blocks, design the way forward
  • Uncharted Territory: Learn to navigate the ups, downs, and curve balls of life.

Standing At The Crossroads


 “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?




Are you at a crossroads as you rewrite your story for 2018?

Are you ready to take a new direction?

Are you encountering a curve ball with your rewrite story of 2018? Or are you feeling stuck, anxious, fearful, or angry? I will be continuing to offer my FREE Shamanic Life/Business Strategy sessions in February. Why? When are you standing at the crossroads, sometimes you just need some support as you tell your story and try to determine which direction to take. This is not a cookie-cutter-one-size fits-all approach as every person I speak to is on a unique journey based on their own personality, gifts, talents, and where they are on the journey. If this strategy session speaks to you, please click on the button below to learn more and to schedule an appointment. For those in the area, I am able to have the session in person.

My Circus and My Monkeys


“Some days your life is all about your dreams, hopes and visions for the future. But there are some days where life is just about putting one foot in front of the other…and that’s okay”

How has your week been going? Have you been having technical issues? Mysterious aches and pains? Do you feel like you are moving backwards and not getting anything done? Do you want to move forward and too many things are laying in your way? What has been slowing you down?

Just notice where you are today.
Just notice when you are trying to move in a way the energy does not want to move in.

I’ve been clenching my jaw this week. I’m not sure when I started doing this. I didn’t even realize I was doing this until I was in the middle of getting a massage today. Throughout the massage, I noticed that my body was full of knots (thank goodness I have a great massage therapist). When did all of this stress and tension start? I checked my calendar and my last massage was November 16th. So all this tension happened in the last month!

Welcome to a month of…

  • holiday festivities,
  • year-end business activities, plus
  • Mercury Retrograde thrown in just to make us feel like we are stuck in mud.

I led a mediation on Tuesday that spoke about the significance of this month. Mercury Retrograde is all about slowing down and surrendering to the space between.

We are between foot steps right now.

Do you feel out of balance? Are you feeling frustrated, exhausted, and defeated? Are you trying to push forward while the world around you is saying NO?

What old stories are coming up for you right now?

My old story is around time, control and deadlines. If this doesn’t get done now, other things will be impacted. How can I keep all of the balls in the air? If one ball drops, even more time will be wasted as I will have to juggle everything around. I feel like I’m a featured juggler of a traveling circus. And then it hit me…

That awful moment when you realize this IS your circus and those ARE your monkeys.

And this is the purpose of Mercury Retrograde. Mercury Retrograde always brings up something that is unconscious within you that you need to see now.

What if you could just accept where you are right now? The space between footsteps. What is it like to stop expecting yourself to arrive and accept the truth that you are exactly where you need to be.

You are in between realities. A temporary less stable reality. Because the new land is not known yet, this transition space has qualities of this new land that is unknown. We have expectations on ourselves that we should know this new land, even though we do not. We departed a territory that we where familiar with and now we are in unfamiliar territory. This unfamiliar territory is changing you and preparing you for the new land. You just are not there yet.

What if it was OK to be uncomfortable?

What if it was OK to use some of your energy to just notice the resources and energy required to be in the unknown?  To notice how you react to being in the known? What is needed to be in this transitional space in a healthy way? What does your heart need right now?

5 Minute Emotional Makeover

Purpose:  To change the old never-ending story that is playing in your head.

Here are 4 simple steps to help you change the story…

  1. Describe it. Describe what is going on in your body. Example: My jaw is clenching and aches with tension.
  2. Name it. Describe what you are feeling. Example: I’m feeling under pressure to get it all done.
  3. Find the sentence. Find the sentence that is causing the emotion. Example: It’s almost year-end and I’m feeling pressure that I won’t get everything done.
  4. Change it. Change the sentence. Example: I am fully supported and can ask for help. If I don’t make a deadline, the world will not end.
