You don’t need permission if you have a pulse.
1. believe, anyway
2. the words thank you matter so frickn much
3. everyone is you, you are everyone
4. daily exercise will lighten the load you carry (in your mind)
5. your journal can collect your wisdom and evict most of your worry
6. plunge your imagination into a vision for your creations/art/business/family/self
7. live so fully you don’t fear regret
8. promise to do what you say
and you’ll trust yourself
more and more
9. meditation can unbury a treasure. use it to excavate more clarity, confidence, and inspiration
10. prayer is a bridge. use it and cross to safety.
11. instead of being wasteful, take less
live above ordinary
your heart will be persistent
even if you leave it to wither in a shoe box
even if you flatten it and use it as a bookmark to save your place
even if you bury it in the garden between the bossy rows of peppermint
your heart will keep on trying to tell you
what you need to know
to be able to survive
to be able to go on
to be free.
when you are ready to listen
when you are ready to know
when you’re ready to let go
your heart will say to you
you’re the one that I want.
tap into your winter wonderland ➻ your mind.
devote a little time every day to create the You and life you really want.
visit your creation every single day–inside your imagination–I’m going to!
welcome to your future.
pick 1 or 2 burning desires and commit to visualizing them. see, feel, hear, and know them like they’re really real for 2-10 minutes during your morning routine. do it again before you go to bed.
see your future wonderland every morning and before bed for the rest of this year.
use the audio below to jazz up your visioning ♛
The gift you want this year, you already have.
When we ruminate over a thought,
or an outcome; we are using our imagination.
When we talk about what we want,
what we believe,
what we fear; we are using our imagination.
When we stay up all night because our mind is unleashed and running rampant between layers and streams and matrices of thoughts; we are using our imagination.
Whenever we daydream, we are using our imagination.
How are you using your imagination?
Your imagination has the magnetic force to attract to you its image.
Your imagination is filled with the pictures that encapsulate your burning desire or your belief about what’s possible.
Hopefully what you believe to be possible is also your burning desire.
If not, well that’s what you need to
fix reconfigure right now.

I had a plan. It certainly didn’t include being single in my late forties. If I knew this future 10 years ago, I would have thrown a temper tantrum at the angels.
I am single. I’m 49. And I am happier today, yesterday, and the day before. I cannot remember feeling this free as a girl, as a woman, in every part of my life.
I feel finally complete as I continue to untame myself, to drop my guard, my masks, my potions.
I am giddy and wild again like a curious child playing with the toys in her chest.
I whisper sweet thanks to experience. And Spirit responds to this exchange.
This story of my completeness I wish to share with my sisters who cry out to be loved by another as a sign of life, and worth.
First set your Self free. Let her thrive in realness.
I would tell her to listen to the opening note of the song you always wanted to sing. This tune will enliven you. Sing it.
I would tell her Wave Your Magic over miles of dreams and fears, and follow every hunch that brushes your cheek.
I would tell her love is an unwrapped present you carry with you all the time. It’s been with you during all those misshapen relationships and solo Friday night dinners.
Once you realize this, open it. Open your gift. It’s wild and untamed inside, made pure and rare, so don’t change it.
You will have opened your full Self, and she’s exactly who you’ve been looking for all this time.
I’m a junkie. I study like a freak. I devour programs on self-growth, energy healing, spiritual principles, bodywise information.
I don’t need to go back to school again–ever. There’re teachers offering brilliant stuff online that really digs deep intellectually. Lisa Nichols. Anne Lamott. Danielle LaPorte. Tony Robbins. Brendon Burchard (Imma take a breath…)
I am addicted.
And here’s the problem: when I find myself stuck in somebody’s
virtual classroom more than I’m out in the world actually using my education,
then being a life-long “studier” becomes a blanket to hide under.
Sometimes life-long students need to close the books and get wise by doing.
