Day 61 – March 1st

Allowing someone to just be, exactly who they are, is such a generous gift.

Being given this gift by others, is priceless.

I work with many people, trying to do the best they can with what they’ve got.  Many, have created ways to take care of themselves, (through trauma or troubled childhoods) that are no long working, but it’s all they know.  At some point they are told by family, friends, or society, “to get over it and move on”.  If it was that easy, they wouldn’t have to come see me.

I have this amazing opportunity to provide a safe and supportive environment where they can simply be themselves, without expectations, or judgments.  Overtime they learn to trust, and then they begin to talk about what is really going on, and begin to take responsibility or their part.   It is on their terms to change.  Not because they are being pressured by others, but because they want more for themselves.

This is when the work really takes on a life of its own.  It is a beautiful thing to witness.  It all begins with unconditional acceptance of who they are.  They begin to believe that they are enough, already.  They are worthy, simply because they are.

This is true for ALL of us.  When we believe that we are worthy and deserving of abundance, we can open ourselves to receive it.

Mantra for today:

“I am enough, I am worthy, I am open to receive abundance in all of it’s forms”.




I am encouraged by the coming of the new year. I am feeling blessed and full of gratitude.  I am sitting here, alone, having just completed a wonderful and revealing meditation. I am exactly where I am supposed to be.  .  .  .  .  .   and so are you.  This brings peace and comfort to my core.

My husband is enjoying a concert tonight, with friends.  We went together last night, and it was magical. I have chosen to stay back tonight and practice self care.  I’m reflecting on this past year, and my heart ebbs and flows, as emotions, thoughts, and memories come up and fade away, into the next. It is a symphony of the Heart.  I can see the times in which I could improve, and those is which I shined.  They carry equal weight, almost none 🙂

I am learning to let go of judgment, of attachment, of  beating myself  up, or putting myself down.  I am practicing forgiveness and acceptance. I want to feel empowered and uplifted by the universe, and freely let the same flow from me.  I do not know where this new year will take me.  .  .  .  or you.  .   .  .  . or us, yet I am hopeful.

May we be happy, may we be at ease, may we be free from suffering.

Saying goodbye and hello – Happy New Year !!

Get out of your Way

Get Out Of Your Own Way

So, I finally broke through the fear of starting up a blog, and I’m already catching myself thinking of ways I’m  going to fail.  What the heck is going on?

It occurred to me how much uncovering may take place as I push ahead and  stay on this path.  How many excuses do I try to come up with for NOT follow through with my intention (to blog daily)? I’m already future tripping.  How will I hold myself accountable when I go up north for a long weekend? Or what about when we go for a vacation to Colorado? What happens if I miss a day? How will I feel about that?  This is exhausting.  It occurs to me how WE (I don’t want to think I am the only one that does this 🙂 ) self sabotage, and create obstacles in our own way, that don’t even exist,yet.

I am recommitting on a daily basis to be honest with myself. To let fear come to the surface, and to take a look at it. To  look under, behind, and around it.  Is there a real threat, or is it simply one that I imagine?  So far, it has been the latter.  Ahhhh.  .  .  .  .   that is a good thing (no danger).  .   .  .   . . and a bad thing (self made).  .  .  .  . and THAT is a good thing (I can change it) !  See how that works? Ever time I take a closer look inward, I am finding things to let go of, and this frees up energy.  YAY!!  (I could use more energy !!)

Ok, I’m putting this out there:

My intention is to write in this blog each day.

I have been wanting to do this for quite some time, but last year this desire became even stronger.   My husband and I try to begin our day together reading a daily reflections book of some sort, and at times ending our night with another.  I was not connecting with the daily readings (more often than not), and  they didn’t really speak to my soul.  Last year I thought of  writing my own daily reflections (starting with January 1), and seeing what came from that.  Nothing.  I didn’t even get started.  I was so concerned about missing a day, or not having anything to write, etc.  This year I am choosing to keep facing my fears, and walk through whatever resistance may come up.

I am looking forward to sharing “One Miraculous Day at a Time” with you.

You’ve got to start somewhere

         Pause. . . . . breathe. . . . . .begin.

I am pushing myself to face my fears.  Walk toward them, and through them.

Just the idea of writing this blog fills me with fear.  I’m not even sure what a blog is, really.  Can I do it? Do I have anything to share? What do I do once I write it? How do people even see it? Do I even want them to? This not knowing, kept me stuck for a long time.  I am working on becoming unglued (in a good way), not being blogged down (I know, corny) with details, taking risks and putting myself out there.

What to I want to share? Not exactly sure, and that is ok.  I’m working on acceptance of what is, of not having all the answers, and remaining open to learning.

I want to connect and to inspire.  I want to feel free and at peace.  I want to let love and joy fill my heart.  I want to trust and have faith.  I want to be playful, curious, and willing to take risks.  I want to embrace life and all that it offers.  I want to allow my soul to be touched.  I want this for myself, and I would like to be able to help you find the same, if you share these desires.

I want to be ok with NOT being ok.  I want to be real, make mistakes, fumble along the way, and get back up to do it a get, only better (maybe).  I want to show you who I am, and let you see me.  I want to see you too.  I want to stay willing and open, even if it is scary, or hurts some.

May this be a safe place for me to be me, and you, you.
