The Truth of Joy

The truth of joy is the richness and courage to fall from grace and still see the core beauty of yourself. To get banged up a bit and sit in the journey of healing. We are each our own greatest healer, but often throw dirt in our wounds because we don’t feel worthy to be whole. Our wounds begin to fester, getting infected and going deep into our system. We then become our wounds. To come back to our truth we can tenderly cleanse these wounds, lick these wounds, release these wounds and stand tall in the miracle of being human. Releasing wounds, releasing drama, opening to the journey of healing. The grace, joy and ease of being in body, mind and spirit ~ exactly who we are here to be, an original human being.

Oh What A Day!

Oh what a day!  Today the universe has set the stage for opening to possibility, clearing out the old and setting intentions for the the authentic.  Our day is in perfect balance with the spring (vernal) equinox occuring at 3:45pm pst.  Yep!  345 . . . order and balance.

We also have a solar eclipse, the Earth’s first ~ and only ~  total solar eclipse of the year and the first one since November 2013. The next total solar eclipse in the USA will be in August 2017.

And if that weren’t enough . . . .  a Supermoon is happening!  A Supermoon is a full or new moon that occurs during the moon’s closest approach to Earth on its elliptical orbit.

We won’t see this Supermoon today because (yes more!) today is also a new moon, meaning the moon has waned all the way into darkness and tomorrow will begin to wax back into fullness.

Each one of these events alone  creates an opportunity for setting intentions and making life happen, but put them all together and you get houskeeping, opportunity, creativity . . . and more!

So, take time today to feel the AMAZING astoronomical events that are occurring, feeling with your inner vision, since your outer eyes may not actually see anything.   Walk boldly onto the stage of your life today, take time to throw open your arms, experience the fullness of possibility, let go of what is no longer useful, and gaze into the eyes of others to connect and expand in the limtilessness of this extraordinary human experience we all get to share.

Enjoy this glorious day and carry it forward into all of your tomorrows.

Embody the Joy that is You.

 

Journey to the Center of Self

The labyrinth is an ancient symbol that relates to wholeness, combining the imagery of the circle and the spiral into a purposeful path.  This medieval pattern, based on the universal symbol for unity and wholeness, the circle, leads each of us to our center, our very core. The beauty and mystery of this journey to the center of self and back out into the world provides a gorgeous metaphor for how we walk through life.  The labyrinth has an uncanny ability to tap into our intuition and release creative intelligence.  Reminding us of the simplicity, the embodiment of putting one foot in front of the other, quieting the mind and opening the heart.  As we walk, we drop walls, we twist and turn, balancing our masculine and feminine, and we release that which no longer serves our highest good.  This gorgeous journey ignites our hearts longing for connectedness and rememberance of our purpose for living ~ giving us the courage to take risks as we manifest our gifts into the world.

What are you willing to do?

Happy new year to all of you on this day filled with sunshine to stimulate and inspire ~

We are moving into an amazing year,  2013.
Thirteen being symbolic of realizing order from chaos, new beginnings after “death”,  all while honoring and being held by mother earth.
My question for all of you as we move into a new calendar and a new, fresh season  “What are you willing to do to live your dream in truth and health ~ aligned with your true purpose?” ~
I invite you all to consider standing honestly  in self care from the inside out and ask “what am  I willing to do to live my optimal life?” Are you willing to pause and listen, resist the temptation to slide into habit and listen a bit longer, explore truly nourishing options?  Are you willing to be transparent, be completely honest with yourself and others?  Are you willing to dig in the refrigerator (of life) to find what you already have that nourishes you and toss out what is no longer useful?  Are you willing to sit with yourself and others, feel an itch and sit a bit longer to see if it passes or if the itch really needs to be scratched?  Are you willing to set the excuses aside and live the life of your dreams?  Are you willing to give yourself the gift of abundant love, health and joy?  Shedding the cloak of unworthiness, knowing that it is up to you to find your own enthusiastic “yes” knowing that the universe celebrates when we truly stand in our gorgeous, unique wholeness!
I invite you to join me in embracing an enthusiastic “yes” ~
I joyfully stand in my truth knowing that I am in the amazing company of all of you!

you are enough

Everyday we are called to step outside of ourselves and fill with “more”.  More clothes, more house, more make-up, more, more, more.  All on the outside.  Being pulled out of where we really are enough, inside.  Our essence is enough.  Our wisdom is enough.  Our spirit is enough.  We are enough.  Like a complex wine, each of us a unique blend of grapes and time.  We are enough.  We are already filled with all of the ingredients.  Give yourself the gift of popping the cork and inhaling the gorgeous bouquet of where you are in your life.  Really noticing and listening to all that is already within you. Your delicious, gorgeous, sometimes hard to swallow, special and unique life.
