Calls and other opportunities to connect Everyday Goddess Community members. Interactive. Creative collaborations. Relationship building. Allowing and open to the experience and sharing.
Some subtle energy shifting changes are going on. I know we are evolving, becoming more internal-guided and aware of intuitive direction. We’re becoming more present in our feminine spirit and body, and her softer and subtle sensing ways of operating, knowing, connecting.
I am leaning more toward BEing than DOing. And not planning as much….or writing as much lately either. (It feels good to be writing now, though!)
I have found that when I push and plan and do, it doesn’t turn out as well as when I follow the muse, respond, and allow and PLAY. … which is totally counter to basic business principles and societal messages in general…and can be a little disconcerting. And yet, I don’t get to skip the planning and doing… they just happen after an invitation or a request or a prompting of the heart.
For me, it’s soul work. The lesson: Manipulation does not work; and doing it all alone doesn’t either. Everything I do has to come from my heart and be true to who I am and what I love and what my soul came here to learn and do and be. I cannot take shortcuts or fool the divine or miss the sacred contracts I came here to participate in. All that has my name on it, from a spiritual perspective, is mine to fulfill. And the other lesson is that I need to trust and know that I am and will continue to be fully supported and blessed in every way I desire and need…including the financial and material needs of this physical world, as well as the spiritual.
Like I said, soul work. That dance of honoring the journey, ourselves (myself), internal guidance, and our real work here, asking for what we desire, and trusting it will be provided. What helps? Nature’s examples: Birds, butterflies, trees and flowers in full bloom after winter; Looking back at all that’s happened and been provided on this path so far; Taking note of the miracles that happen every day and remembering that experiences and support come in many forms; Keeping in touch with my spirit, Source, and others who help me do that, including each of you. It is in BEing all of who I am that brings the rest into place. Puzzle pieces…each one a perfect fit and necessary to the joyful, delightful, interesting, creative, dynamic big picture that is my life here.
Last month’s Goddess circle, muse and magnificence call was on Wallowing in our desires.…identifying what we desire and savoring it. The heart has powerful, attracting energy. What we desire from our heart has a way of coming to us. I desired to see the Pacific Ocean and giant redwoods some day.
Last week, I found myself on a cross-country road trip from Wisconsin to California by truck, arriving in time for a side trip to the ocean and to the redwoods. Such incredible beauty and blessing and grace…and confirmation. What we desire from our heart, we bring to us…very quickly
The soul work in all this is so many-layered.
Last summer, I held a Monday Morning Beach Series. I’m holding another one this year...by request. The dates are Monday mornings, June 17 through July 29, 9:30 – 11 am at a picnic table at the beach by Brewers Two-Pewaukee. This year’s conversation resource will be Dance of the Dissident Daughter by Sue Monk Kidd. The goddess journeys we’re on are soul work. A conversation resource gives us a common starting place. I know from last year that the actual conversations and connections and support experiences go way beyond.
More coming soon. For now, Save the Dates and check out the reference resource.
I so marvel at the flow and unfolding of happenings that feed and fuel my energy–people, places, experiences, synchronicities. I hope you are also feeling and experiencing those kinds of moments, connections, support, and love. I know I love that you and all the blessing you bring by being you are part of this. You are loved and beautiful and appreciated. Look forward to connecting on tonight’s goddess call. – Anne
I’m offering a Creation Spirituality class this week for earth-honoring souls and seekers. It’s a path and perspective that speaks of original blessing and celebrates our goodness and that of the natural world.
I came across this treasure in my own search and studies for a woman-spirit-honoring path…one that also honored or bridged and connected, shed perspective on, the traditions I’d grown up with. It comes out of the scriptural scholarship of Matthew Fox, who also grew up Catholic, in Wisconsin. His work opened and cleared a lot for me.
The class is Wednesday evening, April 24, at the Kindred Spirit Center in Waukesha. More info and Register HERE.
Happy Earth Day and month! Love, blessing, gratitude and celebration to all creation; earth, air, animals, water, plants, people, sun, and stars, and each of you. – Anne
Hello beautiful goddesses!
Today’s Love-Your-Life™ lesson is Wellness Goals and Dreams…WonderSpirit goddess-style for divinely creative, inspired, feminine, artsy, and those curvy, not-so-good-at-straight-lines-and-boxes types. Here’s an intro for a taste. Have a delight-filled day! – Anne
Wellness, Goals and Dreams
Cherish your visions and your dreams, as they are the children of your soul, the blueprints of your ultimate accomplishments. —Napoleon Hill
True wellness begins with our dreams and the callings of our heart … and finding a way to bring them to life.
There are things we do for money, for our livelihood, for security, for necessity sometimes…
Perhaps they serve the body; perhaps not.
Do they serve your spirit, as well?
And then there are those dreams and visions we had in younger days, and maybe some are getting stronger and more insistent now.
Or maybe we’ve outgrown what worked before.
Physically, mentally, emotionally, creatively, who are you now?
And who do you want to be?
When we give voice to the visions inside us, we change ourselves as well as our world. –Rheya Polo
Wellness, Goals, and Dreams goes beyond the usual career and job conversation and goal-setting tools.
For two reasons:
1. The opposite of PLAY is not work; the opposite of play is Depression.
For your health, and love of life, there has to be some serious element of PLAY in whatever work you are doing, the goals you are setting, and the life you are leading.
2. As you grow in awareness and depth, the alignment of personal and professional will MATTER MORE. You want–and will require– your life and work to be something honorable that aligns with and feeds your spirit, as well as your bank account.
These are not mutually exclusive…and that can be part of our conversation.
Our bottom line is, to create a life worth living, worthy of our name on it, one that sustains our body and honors our soul, That’s the framework of this WonderSpirit version of Wellness, Goals, and Dreams.
I invite you to join me; tap in. And I ENCOURAGE you to join me for the whole series and continue. The next lessons directly compliment and support this one.
The WHOLE SERIES will add to and empower more and deeper elements of your life and dreams.
LOVE YOUR LIFE and WHO you are, and want to BE…
Positive support of our dreams makes a difference in the outcome

A new year, a time of looking forward, making changes. What do we want? and Who do we want to be?
What follows are two life wisdom clips for some inspiration and conversation: the first is from Dalende (Gelma Bruce); the second is from Bonesigh Arts.
“Do you want to see changes? Then you must make them happen. …”
“What do you want? What is it that deep down you feel comfortable with? Think about this for a moment. You really like staying at home, you like meditating, you have been writing your lessons, you enjoy cooking, you enjoy traveling, you would enjoy having a house surrounded by mountains, and, most of all, you enjoy doing all this in a leisurely way …”
“Now you have to plan your life the way you intend to live it, and use your thoughts as the building blocks for its realization. This might take some time because old habits die hard, and ego is always present to tempt you to follow the old familiar ways. But…nothing is going to change unless you will it to change. … You have been given the tools to change your life, but the changing is up to you.”
“… [T]here are no preset patterns to somebody’s life. You come here with certain lessons to learn, but the way you set the stage up to learn them is totally up to you. Most people get so involved with setting up their stage that they miss the purpose for the setting of the stage and get lost in the details. You are a creator, and as such you always create, sometimes out of fear, sometimes out of love, but you are always creating. Start writing down all your thoughts on how you want to set up your stage; keep on thinking about this new stage and you will see how your present stage will change. Do not think about anything else; do not pay attention to anything else. This is your life, your stage, and at this point you should know how you want to live it. Do not give in to other people’s thoughts or ways.”
- Conversations with a Friend by Dalende (Gelma Bruce)
it’s your thoughts and your spirit
and your creativity and your flair
and your heart and your sparkle
and your passion and your loves
and your courage that make up
the incredible mix of who you are…
why oh why do we let others tell us
what our mix should be?!
Now your part: the Conversation to make it Yours
. What do you want? What is it that deep down YOU feel comfortable with? What do you enjoy? How would you like to live?
. Old habits … and new approaches
. We are creators. What / How do you want to create out of love? Or fear?

Three notes for today!
1. I’m excited and delighted to welcome my friend and talented crystal jewelry artist, Julie Bvocik of Julie’s Crystal Realm to this growing-our-greatness group of wonder-spirited women entrepreneurs. (I couldn’t resist…) I met Julie at an art fair years ago, and we’ve become friends along the way. I’m one of her raving fans too. She does beautiful crystal chakra jewelry art, especially her signature necklaces. Enjoy!
2. This week’s Love-Your-Life class is the Sacred Feminine / the Feminine Face of God, She whose and image and likeness is reflected in the mirror each day. Join me Wednesday, December 5. Call in and enjoy a woman-spirit-honoring feast into the music, art, and wisdom of the feminine spirit… Info is included with the Class materials and here.
This–and all December classes–will be Interactive Telephone and Web experiences, so you can tap in from wherever you are by phone and keep warm and cozy too. 7 – 8 pm (CT). Details, register here.

That’s all for now. Enjoy the moments. – Anne
