The Soul of Money Playground

Wednesday, September 6, The Soul of Money group opens.  Conversations create our life, and ones about money, abundance, acquiring wealth, earning, and all those emotions that go with it for us.  Let’s make it easier, to see and allow, to receive and direct its flow, to uplift and change what’s possible.  We have that power and grace.  Here’s a page from the book to preview.

 

2016 was a ‘9’ (Endings) year

2017 is a ‘1’ (New Beginnings) year.

Celebrity passings and personal endings–we can all name a few.  In 2017, the energy shifts to one of New Chapters and fresh starts.  I’m welcoming that energy of positive expectation.

I suggest Planning Tools that support this incoming energy of positive expectation, ones that uplift our spirits, and help us feel our way into our heart’s desires, dreams, wish lists, and bucket lists.  Leonie Dawson has two of them–one for ‘life’ and one for ‘biz’–available in digital and hard copy formats.

In a week or so (Saturday, January 7), I’ll be leading a ‘Goals Gotta Go’ workshop at  Happy Me! 2017 in Delafield.  There I’ll feature some Planning Tools that are especially helpful for those who know Goals just don’t work for them…  (which is many of us here)

happy-me

There are other tools too.  Find one that fits and fuels your spirit and life.  I can help with that, if you want.

Other resources on my radar:  Abraham-Hicks messages and meditations as soothing and reassuring mind medicine;  Christiane Northrup, M.D.’s new book, Making Life Easy: A Simple Guide to a Divinely Inspired Life;  And a creative sister, collaborator, muse or group who gets me to do this with together.  I want to be such a being like that for you.  A witness to our life–and sharing our thoughts ‘out loud’–inspires and empowers our living our heart’s desires.

And finally, I’ll share this inspiration from Goddess Leonie about a ‘festival of letting go’ of 2016 and making a miraculous 2017:

Hola gorgeous soul!

As this year is SO VERY NEARLY OVER… I want to wish you the most heartfelt, soulful best for 2017.

I know that this year has been a hard one for so many people.

I wish I had something wise + comforting to say right now, but all I can say is:

2016 sucked GIANT PANDA BALLS!!!

For me it’s been a year of punches that haven’t let up, over + over + over again.

And I’ve stood up again + again + again…

I’ve been broken open by it. And just plain broken by it.

I’ve been exhausted by it. And have been frustrated by it.

And now I get to let it go.

All of it.

The hard. The ugly. The brutal.

The heartbreaking.

And the good that was in there, hiding its light in the darkness. I get to let that go too.

Join me in a festival of letting go.

Let’s go free into this new year that’s coming.

We’re stronger for having experienced this year, even if the experience was unwelcome.

We know what we will + won’t accept.

We are clearer. Wiser. Better equipped.

We know our resilience now.

We know our coping skills.

So, dearest soul, hand-on-heart I wish for you a 2017 that is light + ease-filled.

A year that lets you breathe.

That contains healing for your soul + nurturing for your mind + body.

Let’s make 2017 miraculous.

(Leonie Dawson, creative goddess-author of 2017 Amazing Life & Biz Planners )

Blessings, beautiful ones.  I look forward to our co-creating together in 2017.  We are all growing, becoming more aligned with our soul.

Exploring our divinity…

our worth, and waaaayyyy more …

This content is deep and spiritual. It will stir dynamic exchanges, touch souls, and shift power centers, and awaken that light and passion of a goddess you are born to embody and be.

And this leadership, sensual-spiritual-feminine-soul scholarship and support resources, and well-seasoned, deepened, life empowering passionate presence of this course….And  twenty-some hours of live, in-person conversing together around a woman’s worth, well-being, who we really are, and where and how and what we desire to shine our radiance in service of.

That’s a lot, hugely valuable to a woman ready and willing to explore and own her soul, her life, her divinity, her brilliance and light, to see and reclaim her extraordinary worth and show up confidently aware and powerful wherever she walks this earth.

Sister goddesses, this is one powerful adventure you’re invited into–a life’s work of its author, and add to generously as this course continues.  This is a goddess-growing, soul-activating, powerful course.

Investment:
Classes are $20 each.  (Will meet 9 times, about 2 hours each.)

See our Calendar for course dates and more details.

Anything’s possible.  You are of goddess origins.  Pleasure is your birthright. Your soul is aware and awakening.  You are radiant, brilliant light… power pulsates and takes form through you…

Daring to be Ourselves

Hello goddesses,

Our words for today are ‘Daring’ and ‘Courage’ because it takes courage and daring to be OURSELVES.  It’s so much easier and safer to play-act being someone else.  To be truly who we are, though, is to risk ridicule.  Words meant to hurt, dishonor, shame.

Why am I afraid to tell you who I am?  Because … you may not like who I am, and that’s all I have.  – John Powell, S.J.

If our mask is being made fun of, we can laugh along with the joker; it’s only a costume, after all.  When there is no mask, we are vulnerable to feel our deeper spirit’s wounding…our real spirit of self-worth, acceptance…and believe that our real SELF is not good enough, that we are not good, or enough. … When we ARE very much, both good, and enough.

Self-discovery is a Sacred Path.

It takes COURAGE and DARING to confidently travel our personal path and discover–and recover– our own style, beauty, gifts, grace, and greatness.  …  to live without the mask and costume of someone else.

Our Fall Book Study Series is a powerful one and begins next week Tuesday and Thursday.  Our guiding resource book, P***y: a Reclamation, may take Courage and Daring for some to read also.  Is it worth it?  I think it is; you decide, though.

Join me if you’re feeling a little Daring and Courageous… and maybe Curious.

If you’re like me, you have more than one book going at a time.  Alongside this one, for instance, I’ve got Renee Starr’s You Are Woman, You Are Divine. I love how one sheds light on another.  Here are three more interesting complementary-reading possibilities you might like also:

Daring to Be Yourself by Alexandra Stoddard

A Woman’s Worth by Marianne Williamson

The Dance of the Dissident Daughter by Sue Monk Kidd

Get IN on this Awesomeness TODAY!  Be a little daring.  This is going to be so good and fun.  Details are on this Calendar or here.  Welcome.

A lot of this is deep and personal stuff… religion, spirituality, self-esteem, and full ownership and awareness of one’s life, body, and soul. And loving our self and  being our true self.  It all takes a certain amount of Daring and Courage…that we will help each other with.

For some, perhaps a group is not a comfortable venue–or group times don’t fit right now.  That’s why I also provide individual private-study Personal Packages.  If that feels better, a free 30-minute, no-obligation discovery session gets us started.

These are Expansive Times — of expanding our understanding of all that it means to LIVE–bodily and spiritually–in this Lifetime EXACTLY as who we are…and that our path definitely includes Pleasure by design.

Still have questions, contact me.

Looking forward to these delightfully daring gatherings. – Anne

 

Fall Book Study

Hello Goddesses,

We’re going boldly where many fear to go this fall.  Our selected book is the author’s lifetime achievement, has only been out since September 20, and has already hit the NYT Best Seller List!

nyt-best-seller

I’m excited and happy for her; and having already downloaded my Kindle edition, I’m enjoying the read.  As EDG community members, this is one of your membership inclusions, i.e. You get in FREE.

Tomorrow will be an open / Free info – Intro session.  (Both here at KSC in the afternoon and by phone in the evening.)    You are welcome to invite other goddesses to be part of this.   Our series will run for 9 weeks.  Call-in number is same as last time, or email me if you need it.

So looking forward to connecting and conversing again.  And what a topic, hey!  Please share as you’re inspired.

Also, if you don’t have the book yet, or even if you do, here’s the author’s site for a better idea of who she is and her work…and bonuses she’s still got on the table for us…

Love it!  Tomorrow, Ladies.  Good stuff.  – Anne

The Wise Woman

… you know her…The Wise WomanDivinity and Creativity, embracing our essence …

In her concluding words of Big Magic, author Elizabeth Gilbert leaves us with thoughtful words about this work we do:

Creativity is sacred, and it is not sacred.

What we make matters enormously, and it doesn’t matter at all.

We toil alone, and we are accompanied by spirits.

We are terrified, and we are brave.  Art is a crushing chore and a wonderful privilege.

Only when we are at our most playful can divinity finally get serious with us.

Make space for all these paradoxes to be equally true inside your soul, and I promise–you can make anything.

So please calm down now and get back to work, okay?

The treasures that are hidden inside you are hoping you will say yes.

(Elizabeth Gilbert, Big Magic)

Our lives are sacred work… and all those paradoxes that go with it… We are blessed and blessing, human and divine, art and soul…wise women.  Look in a mirror, deep in those eyes…and smile.  – Anne

Flow and synchronicity

This week Tuesday night’s goddess call subject is Synchronicity from The Power of Flow…Chapter 2 in the book if you’re following along.

There are many powerful, spirit-freeing, thought-stretching reads.   Bring what you’re reading that speaks of synchronicity and flow.  I found this, for example, in email this morning:

When you allow a full alignment with the Source within you, unpleasant things that may be happening around you will not matter.  Instead of being influenced by the unwanted things that are happening, you will be influenced by your alignment with Source and with Well-being.  —Abraham

There’s a universal energy and synergy that naturally connects things and brings pieces together.  I see it all the time…and I’m in awe, and I love what it happens.  Maybe it’s the lens I look through.  I see connectings and layers of meaning.  And I appreciate their timing.  It reminds me I’m not in this alone; none of us are.

Have a beautiful day.  Enjoy what you’re reading and let it uplift and inspire you!

Much love and grace.  – Anne

6-week ‘Big Magic’ Series

big magicIt’s only right to start a new year with a new book, and one that inspires the heart and soul of writers and creatives like us!  So, my beautiful goddess friends, starting Tuesday evening, January 12, we’ll be talking about Big Magic in our weekly goddess calls.

I was gifted with a copy over the holidays and am so enjoying it…

Alongside Big Magic, I read and finished Julia Cameron’s Walking In THIS World, also.  Between the two of them, there is rich, wonderful material to feed an artist’s or writer’s or musician’s–or any other creative’s–spirit and work.  It takes courage to say yes to a gift, a calling and do what we do…which is the first section we’ll talking about in Big Magic.

These community calls connect us to each other; the books fuel our spirits and minds.  There is something so good about sharing this weekly time together, in real-time conversations.  The book is a backdrop, a starting place; the rest falls into place.  It is magical sometimes…

Calls start at 8:10 pm. (Central).   Hope you can make it!

Looking forward to Tuesday night’s call.  Big Magic is in the air.

PS  Tuesday night goddess calls are included in your Everyday Goddess Community membership.
