Money Worry

“If you are worrying about money, work on increasing your sense of well-being rather than thinking about money.  Rather than asking, ‘How much money do I need today?’ ask yourself, ‘How can I create money today?’  There is an enormous difference in the energy you send out to the universe when you focus on creating money rather needing money;  the first is magnetic to money and the latter is not.”

Getting Money, Keys to Abundance, Sanaya Roman & Duane Packer (1988).

Active Wisdom

“How do you partake of its unlimited vision, its divine judgment, its holy discrimination, its clear intuition?  By letting the highest aspect of your being take control of your lower nature.  And when your true self takes command, you do not sound as foolish nor as irresponsible and your actions do not boomerang to dig a deeper hole for you than you were in before.  Your words resonate with the Power of Spirit, your emotions are motivated by love, and each decision is looked upon as skill in action.  With the energy of  Wisdom circulating freely, lack is transformed into abundance, illness to wholeness, failure to success, harmfulness to harmlessness, futility to fulfillment. ”

The Angels Within Us, John Randolph Price

Mindfulness

Mindfulness is focusing on the present moment, on the now.  It means bringing conscious mind, day-dreaming mind, the deeper mind…the whole self, including it’s shadow aspects,  fully into the moment.

Nothing, no thing we do is unimportant.  From the simple act of tying a shoe to the more complex actions and decisions that living demands, all are important. 

As with meditation, breathing is essential…mindful breathing.  Focus on each breath.  Bring the full attention of your whole self to the rhythm of your breathing.  You will experience distraction, and when you do, bring the fullness of your attention back the passage of your breath.  As you practice, focusing will become easier.  The mind begins to clear, anxiety eases, a sense of peace and well-being grows steadily.  You can achieve a deeper harmony with the Divine.  Life gets better regardless of what is happening around you.

Bringing mindfulness and meditation together in daily practice is free.  And the investment of time and energy will pay great dividends.

Your Future

The future is fluid; very little is set in stone.  Part of our future is determined by circumstances, part by ‘fate’ and then there is ‘free-will’; our personal effort and commitment and the consequence of our decisions or indecisions.

I invite you to do an exercise of intention.  Create some quiet, centered, personal space, and write a letter to yourself  from the future you desire.  The focus can be in your career, your relationships, personal habits you want to overcome, and/or personal goals you would like to achieve.  You can address one issue or multiple issues.  Be as specific as possible not only regarding the end result, but also with the behaviors it will take to accomplish these goals.  Share how the success feels.  Be realistic.

Be thoughtful.  Be kind.  As you write your letter treat yourself with respect and encouragement.  Affirm and support yourself.  Acknowledge your fears, soothe and remove them.  Do a draft first, because you deserve  to be the recipient of a neatly, hand-written letter from your future. 

When you are finished, put the letter in an envelope and address it to yourself.  Then give it to a trusted friend, asking them to mail it to you in one month.  Do not omit this important step.

In this exercise, you will have set and defined your intention, and created usable strategies for attaining your future goals.

Start now…your future is waiting!

Life Coaching

Life Coaching, Career Coaching, Business Coaching and Spiritual Guidance/Coaching are becoming more mainstream as people struggle with our down economy.  People are  seeking new ways of achieving their personal and professional goals.

Although we all have the answers within us, a skilled Coach can draw them out and help direct us to solutions that not only suit who we are, but put our feet squarely on our path.

“Thank you so much for your insights and your seamless perceptions.  It is so helpful to me.”   Carol S.

The Coaching process can be defined as a ‘creative partnership’.  I have been Life Coaching for several years.  It is one of the most rewarding aspects of my business.

“I place so much value on your kindness, insight and wisdom which has always been so validating to me.  Thank you for being honest with me .  I hope you know how much you are appreciated!”  Kerry H.

Reading Signatures

I will be Reading Signatures at the Sebastopol Farmer’s Market on Sunday May 30. This reminded me that I have been ‘reading signatures’ for more than 35 years. It is quite an amazing gift; and what I do is purely intuitive.

However, there is the field of scientific handwriting analysis that is used in the Criminal Justice system and also by Companies and Corporations seeking to screen potential employees. The oldest and most widely recognized school for teaching ‘grapho-analysis’ is IGAS. There is also ‘Grapho-Theraputics’, which is a handwriting therapy.

Although I was very attracted to the scientific method, I long ago had to make a decision to go in one direction or the other. I decided to stay with my intuitive style. It was the right choice for me, my career and the clientele I serve.

Memorial Day

On this special day I invite you to take some time to acknowledge, remember and honor family, friends and the fallen heros that have served our country.

Intuition

What is Intuition?
Intuitive abilities are universal. The ‘sixth sense’ is as inherent in the human species as hearing, smelling, seeing, etc. And like its fellow senses, is expressed at greater or lesser strength within each individual. One person identifies with a keen sense of smell or keen eyesight, another with an extraordinary sense of hearing. So too, intuition varies in strength from person to person. I prefer the word intuition to psychic primarily because of the unsavory connotation implied by the contemporary use of the word psychic. More often than not, it is a catch-all phrase for charlatans. This is not meant to imply that all people who call themselves psychics are scam artists. But in a field with an intangible product so impossible to regulate, there are many who prey on a fearful and vulnerable clientele.

Although I prefer to use the word intuition as applied to myself and my professional practice, there are places where the word psychic is wholly applicable – as in defining various abilities subsumed under the following major headings. The most common and familiar of these being clairvoyance, clairaudience and clairsentience.

Basically this means, ‘seeing’, ‘hearing’ and ‘feeling’ beyond the normal range of the senses. They are often considered supernatural abilities. Now supernatural is defined, in part, as being above or beyond the laws of nature. Advances in quantum physics demonstrate that beyond the fundamental laws of nature, there are laws of creativity which by their very nature preclude consistently predictable energetic responses or ‘results’. And which might, at times, be called supernatural.

Because intuition is as inherent to human beings as love or faith, it is a natural, not a supernatural function. It is our perceptions based on superstition and scientific empiricism that cast these abilities into a pit of skeptic derision.

Reflect for a moment on your own experience. Focus on the small, repetitive occurrences. For example, you have been thinking of a certain person, usually a friend or relative, and then ‘out-of-the-blue’ they contact you or you ‘just happen’ to run into them. You purchase some item at the store and you’re not sure why, like paper towels for instance. Later you discover that you are out of paper towels. The phone rings and you ‘just know’ that it’s your Aunt Martha; and you’re right. This list goes on and on.

We take so many of these day-to-day experiences for granted that we lose sight of their origin in our intuition. Additionally, when such premonitions are of a darker nature, we are often disturbed by them, and like a bad dream, we push them aside.

As humans, we fear what we cannot understand; often turning to skepticism and ridicule as a way of making ourselves more comfortable. I invite you to take a fresh look at your intuition!
