4AM Wake Call, A Missing Remote, And Where Do I Go From Here {Finding Joy In The Journey}

All great changes are preceded by chaos.

~Deepak Chopra


Monday morning at 4AM, I woke up with random thoughts running through my head. Instead of giving any weight to or catastrophizing these thoughts, I simply asked the question…

What should I do next?

The response was fast and totally out of left field….

Facebook Live!!!

My response to the answer….

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOoooooo

So I decided to sit with that thought and not write my Monday blog. Instead I decided to watch how the week would unfold. Monday night after the last “in-person” yoga class, 2 of my friends and I went to a bar for our last “in-person” cocktail. At the bar, there were 3 of us and a bartender. As we spoke, I noticed that every TV had the news on about the pandemic. I found myself getting angry over the fact that TV News had quietly slipped back into my life. I found that I had started turning on the TV News every morning and night at home in order to learn more about the current status of pandemic and the ever changing social engagement rules. Monday night I could honestly feel how the News has been releasing a new kind of virus called…. the Fear Thought Virus

Tuesday morning, I did some cleaning on the first floor. When I went to watch the TV News on the first floor that evening (as the TV is connected to an antenna – while the 2nd floor TV only has Netflix and Amazon Prime), I couldn’t find the remote control. As of writing this blog, I still can’t figure out what happened to that remote. For those who do not understand where my 1st floor TV is, it sits on top of an old beer cooler. So it would require a ladder to turn the TV on and off (plus to change the channels). My thoughts after the lost remote incident – guess I really don’t need the TV News as I have computers and can google the news/control how much fear I want to enter into my living space.

Wednesday morning, I decided to finally finish developing an on-line DYI program for people who are standing at a crossroads of their life and are ready for change. It’s only been on my to-do list for 3 months! Details here.

Thursday morning, I decided to shift my Sunday Live Sound Bath from in-person to On-Line. Link to register.

Friday morning,after a restless night filled with others’ nightmares entering my dreams, I concluded that I will be offering free 15-Minute Tune-Ups daily (Mon-Fri) via Facebook Live. My intention with these 15-Minute Tune-Ups is to provide people with the opportunity to clam down and relax for 15 minutes during this time of chaos. I will be doing it “Farm Market” style – so besides sound, expect talking, laughing, and pulling a daily angel card. To stay updated on my Livestream times, like the Kent Emporium on Facebook (link below)

Your Genius In Disguise {Finding Joy In The Journey}

“Some people come into your life as blessings, others come into your life as lessons.”

~Unknown


When I speak to people about discovering their unique gifts, the first response I get is…

I don’t have any unique gifts!

And my response…

REALYY!?!?!?

So here is a simple exercise that I would like you to try. I would like you to think back to an experience in your life when you had to confront someone. An experience that in the end made you feel empowered and proud of yourself. This person might be a family member, a friend, a boss, a colleague, or a bully.

  • Give the story a name.
  • Describe it. Ask Yourself…
  •  Why am I proud of this story?
  • What talents and gifts did I use?
  •  What did I love doing?

Check out the video below to hear my story.

Did you like this tool? This is just one example of the “Embracing Your Awesomeness” tools that I will be teaching at the Soul’s Calling Circle starting on March 14th.

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!

Tea, Shoes, and Hidden Treasures {Finding Joy In The Journey}

“I’m learning to love the sound of my feet walking away from things not meant for me!”

~Twelve Odd Months


In December I was informed that I would be spending the first week of 2020 in Minneapolis. I was not happy about it for several reasons.

  • Minneapolis weather in January is well known for sub-zero temperatures, high winds, and lots of snow
  • The people participating in the event are not my tribe (so conversations will be difficult and not fun), and
  • The topic…I have a different philosophy and therefore didn’t think I would add any value to the conversations.

To summarize my thoughts and feelings about the trip….


I feared that I would be the miserable wallflower at a boisterous meeting!
I felt like I won’t belong and will not add value!


I’m sure you are all familiar with the feeling of wanting to be anywhere other than where you are. It has been a continual theme in my life – wrong location, wrong tribe, and wrong topic. So in order to appease myself and make the trip feel a little more fun and adventurous, I googled the address of Fluevog Shoes and decided that I would take an earlier flight specifically to visit this shoe store (located about 20 minutes from the hotel and not at the Mall of America). Why Fluevog Shoes? I stumbled across this shoe company while reading a book (recommended by a friend) last summer called:

Cupcakes, Trinkets, and Other Deadly Magic

Don’t you just love the title! It’s a light easy read book filled with cupcakes, adventure, and magic. The main character in this book series continually mentioned her Fluevog shoes. So I googled Fluevog and discovered a whole new world of “magical” shoes. Not only are the designs awesome, but each shoe has a motto. Examples: Be Your True Self; Share your cool… increase your daily hugs; Go Wear The Spirt Flows.

On Tuesday, after I landed at Minneapolis and picked up my rental car, I typed in the address on my cell phone and drove to Fluevog Shoes. There was limited parking in the area, so I parked in a grocery store parking lot (to get free parking) and went into the grocery store to check it out. I wish there was a local grocery store like this – full of beautiful flowers, organic food, and shelves of The Republic Tea blends. So I purchased a few new tea blends to test out for future workshops and walked to Fluevog Shoes. While in the store, I carefully studied the shoes I wanted to try on and when the sales associate came out with the boxes, she decided to add a few more selections to the mix. It was so much fun trying on different shoes. The craziest shoes I tried on where gold and sparkled (imagine glitter shoes). I felt like I needed to wear an Elton John outfit. After trying on 8 different styles of shoes, I made my selection and found out that the shoes were on sale and there is no clothing/shoe sales tax in Minnesota. WOOHOO. When I returned to my hotel room, I looked at the shoes and noticed that the motto was not marked on the bottom of the shoe soles. So I googled the shoes on-line and found the motto:

Find Your Hidden Treasures

How fun is that! But what really caught my attention was the following: The Carmen is built partly from delicate Italian leather that features real dried flowers underneath a thin layer of clear patent.


WOW – so plant medicine is sneaking back into my life via my shoes.

On Wednesday, I received my weekly Pied Piper of Purpose newsletter which included a weekly oracle reading. The reading included a picture of a scythe (just like the one I had received from my grandfather). The weekly message…

What thoughts do you need to release? I realized I needed to release my very old story of…I don’t belong here!

So I decided to play with the old story. I decided to change my thoughts around and said to myself “I can’t change the fact that I’m here, so maybe I should ask…how can I be of service while I’m here?” I let go of the belief that I don’t belong here and my opinions don’t matter and quickly discovered that the guidance I provided 6 months ago to the Minnesota customer had been implemented. By letting go of this very old belief, I could suddenly see the truth.

I do belong here and what I do does matter!

I saw first hand 3 companies working together – an initiative I started last July.

 

On Thursday: Google randomly sent me a picture I took in July 2019 – a live healthy tree with some very old dead branches. A reminder that…


Old stories are like dead tree limbs. You need to cut them off, so the tree stays heathy and grows!


Thursday after the meetings ended, my colleague wanted to stop by the Mall of America prior to catching their flight back to Montreal. As I walked around with my colleague, she picked out 2 party dresses that were on sale: a black party dress and a gold party dress. She mentioned to me that black was her usual color but the gold dress both intrigued her and scared her. I asked her what scared her about the gold dress. Her response…”I can’t hide wearing the gold dress, everyone will see me”. My response to her, besides BUY IT…

Maybe it’s time to stop hiding and SHINE!

On Friday: I awoke inspired as the book I’ve been attempting to write for 2 years finally just started to flow out of me. And my full moon message:


It’s time to release the old story of “not belonging” so that I can actually see my hidden treasures!


Are you ready to uncover and release an old story so that you can reconnect to your hidden treasures and own magic? Listen to my Full Moon Sound Journey below. I would love to hear what you discover. And if you need assistance in deciphering the message, I offer 45 minute free consultations (with no pressure to buy anything).

New Year – New You {Finding Joy In The Journey}

“We are all stories in the end. Just make it a good one!”

~The Doctor Matt Smith (Dr. Who)


Can you believe it’s already January 2020!?!?!?! I hope you had a wonderful holiday season and are slowly easing into 2020. For me, January is always a quiet time of reflection and stillness. One of my favorite yearly January rituals is to select a word for the year and live with it. I choose my word by connecting with the essence of my future authentic self (think Christmas Carol with a better version of the ghost of Christmas future). In 2018, I chose the word “Grace” and Grace the cat showed up and taught me a lot about that word. Before I set down my 2019 word and pick a 2020 word, I wanted to share a little about my 2019 word. My 2019 word was…

Bodacious

What I love most about selecting a word based on my future authentic self is that I never know where the word will take me. Will it be a word that leads me down the path of reflection or expansion or both? What I learned about my authentic self in 2019 while living with the word Bodacious:

I adore…lattes and pumpkin scones
It feels good when…I connect with others at a soul level
I remember…experiences
I wear…my heart on my sleeve
I listen to…Playing For Change
I eat…kale salads and red meat
I move….with grace
I celebrate…sunrises and sunsets
I protect…dreams from naysayers
I give…smiles to passing strangers
I delight in….heartfelt conversations

This year when I journeyed to met my future self, I envisioned myself holding a market basket and then the following word popped into my head for 2020…

Exuberant

I have no idea where the basket and this word will lead me, but I know it will be a year of discovery and adventure.

Are you ready to connect with your future self and discover more about yourself?

Celebrate Your Flawsomeness {Finding Joy In The Journey}

“What if the best of 2019 is the worst of 2020?”

~Robin Rosenstiel


It’s time for a Solstice celebration! The Winter Solstice is on Saturday December 21st. The Winter Solstice is the time of endings and beginnings, a powerful time of self-reflection, intention-setting and expanding your horizons. In last weeks’ blog I asked specific questions around 2019. This week, I have expanded the window of time so you can reflect on 2010 – 2019.

Self-Reflection Questions:

  • How did I grow?
  • What were my losses?
  • What are the things that helped me learn?
  • What did I rise above?
  • What can I celebrate?
  • What is the best thing that happened to me in 2019?

What if the best of 2019 is the worst of 2020?

Watch my YouTube video below to listen to my answers to these questions.

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!

The Road Map To Meeting You Where You Are {Finding Joy In The Journey}


“There comes a time in life when you just need to throw out the conventional roadmap and create your own!”

~Robin Rosenstiel


I postponed my blog this past week, not because I didn’t have anything to say, but just the opposite…I had a creative push (thanks to the full moon).

My creative push started with my business trip last week. I spent last week in Minneapolis leading an Value Stream Mapping event at a customer. For those who do not know what a Value Stream Map is – it is basically a picture that represents the current state of the business and where the pain points are. I love doing Value Stream Mapping exercises as I get to play detective. I get to work with the business and ask intuitive questions, dive into the data, speak to people, follow through on hunches, and peel back the layers in order to piece the puzzle together.

The result…an identified actual root cause which is often totally different than what the business thought.

With the root cause identified, the next logical step it to work with the customer to layout a future state Value Stream Map (based on the imagination). But in this case the customer was so stuck on the problem they could not focus on a future state vision – only short term actions to reduce the pain. By Wednesday my colleague started to push forward with creating a future state map which irritated and angered me – as it felt like pushing a boulder up the hill. Why was my colleague pushing for the future state map? Because it’s part of the “rule” book that states this is what you are “suppose to do” next – create a future state map. No where in the “rule” book does it state that as VSM Trainers, we are suppose to meet the customer where they are. So the future state map exercise became a useless check the box activity. Why did it irritated me so much?

Because we weren’t meeting the customer where the customer is! The customer needed Root Cause Correction Action and not a Future State Map!

The customer was stuck and wanted to focus on whatever short-term activities that would resolve the pain point vs. sitting around hypothesizing about a future that might never exist.
So what does this have to do with my creative push. This friction of events inspired me to layout a roadmap for people who are a bit confused in regards to how I can assist meeting you were you are at.

Need a minute to breathe and reconnect to yourself:

Feel stressed out and overwhelmed and need some self-care:

Want to create a soul practice to connect to spirit, your intuition, and creativity:

Stuck and don’t know what your next step is:

Have an idea of what you would like to do next, but are struggling with clarity, confidence, and courage:

Ready to connect to your own magic and claim your unique gifts:

And remember from last weeks’ blog

I don’t do cookie cutter….hahahaha!

Where are you today and how can I assist you on your journey?

Living in a Week of Should {Finding Joy in the Journey}

“There are two paths in life: should and must. We arrive at this crossroads over and over again. And every day, we get to choose.”

~Elle Luna


Monday AM as I drove to Rockford in the fog, I was stopped by a red stop light at Route 20 and Pecatonica Road. As I waited for the light to change from red to green, I watched a small field mouse dance across 4 lanes of highway unhurt. I was fascinated with how the mouse moved so I googled Mouse Spirit Animal and though…

WOW…I think I might need some mouse power this week!

I posted the Mouse Spirit Animal picture and link on Facebook and my dear friend Sue responded…

It’s all in your dance moves! I learned this back in the 70s watching Soul Train!

I laughed and responded…

Wonder when I will need to slip into dancing mode this week?

So here I am Friday morning, reflecting back on…

A Week Filled With Should!

A week filled with people telling me where I “should” be living, what I “should” be doing with my life, and why I “should” be doing it. In the past I would have gotten angry and defensive, but this time around I stopped and took in each “should” with curiosity. I leaned into each “should” and tested it out with body sensations and the shackles on/shackles off approach.

Should I be living in a different town? So I had coffee at the local coffee shop and checked it out. The coffee shop was filled with some interesting people and it’s walkable from potential houses that are for sale. I always wanted to be able to walk to a coffee shop vs. having to drive every where. My body felt relaxed and happy and it felt shackles off.

Should I buy a house in a different town? I scheduled a walk through of a house. By the end of the walk through, I felt like I had just walked in a complete circle as every room had 2 doors (plus there were 2 staircases). I left feeling dizzy and overwhelmed as thoughts of should vs must filled my head. I couldn’t even tell you if it felt shackles on or shackles off as my body was on sensory overload.

The “what I should be doing” and “why I should be doing it” conversations throughout the week gave me indigestion, heartburn, and a major headache. Every one of these conversations felt totally shackles on, or better yet, like a noose around my neck!

And the most fascinating observation about the Week of Filled with Should? Not once was I asked…

  • Does this make my heart happy?
  • How do I feel about this?
  • How would I like to proceed?

Instead the week was filled with one-sided conversations around other people’s expectations of how they want me to live my life. Isn’t that interesting? I didn’t realize it was my job to live my life based on others’ expectations.

Today as I typed this blog post, I reflected back on the mouse that danced across 4 lanes of highway on Monday and realized that I have also learned to dance in the world of “should”.

A general note about Chakra Health
You are constantly interacting with and responding to the world around you. So are your chakras. Practices that help clear and rebalance the chakras are never a “once and done” activity. Just as you would not expect your body to remain clean forever after one shower, your chakras are not going stay clear forever after one meditation, one yoga, or one Reiki session. On-going energetic self-care plays is essential for overall chakra health and well-being.
