All Made Up

I went to pick up some make-up and the lovely lady did my whole face. It was good times. I've never been the wear make up every day kind of gal. I often opt for a hat and a face wash before I head out for the day. But once in a while, it's so much fun to put on the layers of goo that makes my face look artsy.

I Am Sovereignty

A most liberating sense to hold within yourself is one that says: I will never conform to your definitions and expectations of how I ought to be in the world.

You can never be confined to the limits of someone else's mind, or your own for that matter.  You cannot be captured by the mind. You can be perceived by the single heart, you can be clearly seen through the eyes of love, but there is nothing that can contain the totality of who and what you are.And there in rests your freedom to be your self, all of your Self in any given instant.

It's one of our most interesting patterns - we want people to fit nicely and neatly in the boxes we've created in our own mind for them. We make our approval of them mean more than their own self approval.It's safer that way. It's safer, they're safer if they are put in the box of the known, the familiar. We're conditioned to remain blind to the Unknowable nature of the life that organizes itself into all that is seen.

In your self recognition, you'll clearly see how it rings true that: I'm not your ideas of me - your ideas of me are solely about you.

In our inter-relatedness we forget how much of an independent authority we have over our own spontaneous being. We are our own rulers, the sole authors of how we individually show up in the world. But we've been trained to believe that the approval, validation, and expectation we need to conform to are those of the outside world, those of the "others" around us - we're taught that it's safer to conform, it's better for our survival and integration into the social context to shrink ourselves to the definitions and expectations written out for us elsewhere.

People short-circuit when you clearly and boldly stand outside their ideas of you. And yet to remain in your authenticity, you have to be uncontrollable, indefinable, un-graspable by not only the mind of other's but by your own also. You have to allow your being the freedom to extend itself in whatever direction your inner impulses choose.You have to live in the freedom of both your stability and changeability.

Never overlook the magick of your being. Give yourself permission to Be your self UN-apologetically.

Be in Wonderment!!!

One of my favorite things about this life, is just HOW MUCH there is to fall in love with every day. Every day is a chance to ask the question: I wonder what I'm going to get to fall-in love with today? I want to make a "you're my favorite" pin and stick it on everything!!! EVERYTHING! Including the fat raccoon I saw the other day. See the magnificence of everything in your view. Acknowledge it. Go discover it. Move out of the mind of familiarity and into the heart of wonder. Are we really here, being this, experiencing this, living this!?!??! WOW!!!

Trippin On This Fantastic Voyage

I drove up island on Thursday to give a talk on creativity followed by a one day workshop on Saturday. It was incredible to be in that space. I've been a speaker in smaller environments, and with being on the radio for a few  years have grown comfortable just letting it flow. But there's something more when it's a live audience. The eye contact, the way they adjust and shift in response to what I say, the way they register and interact with the information flowing out of me is INCREDIBLE to witness. The more I grow, the more humans fascinate me.

One of the participants at the end said: "thank you for that thorough scrubbing"


The whole trip was indescribable. The organizers offered their basement suite for me to stay in. It was a two bedroom suite bigger than the house I live in right now, which had its own entrance so I came and went as I pleased. Every part of this trip was lined with the ease and fluidity of the talk and the workshop. Everything was JUST better than that JUST right feeling.

I feel so blessed to be where I am, to be what I am, to just be.

I'm settling back into my home space now feeling the flow of it all, feeling the magick of it all, feeling blissed out on the blessings that continue to unfold themselves into my world.
