A lot of good comes of silence… alone with our thoughts, feelings, emotions. Quiet time, personal retreat, centering. In all the noise out there, I had to go inward with the events of the past few days…reading, writing, letting emotions run through. I want to be only with my people, those in alignment with my own energies. I have no desire to be in those other energies right now.
My reading has been delightfully perfect and insightful, though … bringing sparkling clarity that comes out of contrast. This was deep contrast bringing powerful clarity … re-aligning with my core; all of who I am and love and breath filling a sacred space in me. — and, of course, perfect words showed up to help. (The Universe has such a sense of humor and just the most-precise way to reach me.)
For anything to grow, space is needed. If we wish to get more from life, sometimes it is necessary to do less instead of trying to cram more things in. – Sue and Simon Lilly
You have no idea what’s been unleashed. Pussies were never meant to be leashed; cat-persons know this.
This book–and the work of my entire life–is promoting a new type of activism. … It is based not in anger and indignation, but in joy and pleasure. It’s an activism that is undertaken by women, for women. It’s about taking other women higher in order to take ourselves higher. It incorporates spirituality, social justice, radiant turn-on, and reverence for nature. … This revolution is here to take the world to a new level of turn-on. – Regena Thomashauer
Our sacred core is pleasure, joy, and radiance. Oh yes…
My experience of the slave life and the situation with my employer made me realize that true power is very different from the power I had learned about in my political science classes in school. I now know that to be powerful means to be true to who you are, rather than the domination of others. – Mira Kelley
It’s My Pleasure…
… ancient, female-based religions viewed pleasure-seeking as an act of worship. … Pleasure is an ancient sacred path. … Pleasure is a path of hope and optimism, belief in love and, yes, romance! It’s a path that leads to happy endings and true love, but it’s up to each of us to create it. … But ultimately the journey is yours to take and create. And the pleasure will be yours too. – Maria Rodale and Maya Rodale
Joy, Pleasure, and Radiance 2017.
In the midst of this came my word for 2017: RADIANCE… as in Awaken your Radiance, Lit from Within, Let your Sun shine; know you are the Sun. Unleash your Radiance … we aren’t meant to be leashed. Our sensuality is sacred, pleasure is our divine power; self-recovery is a sacred journey I know well, and light a path through.
So much is coming together. I’m grateful, love it, and feel excited…and also honoring what my spirit needs. Hope you are too. Blessings and love, and take really good care of you. – Anne
If you see me having coffee somewhere in my travels, my cards are close by. It’s how I work and travel.
I love how the perfect card drops and offers beautiful guidance your spirit needs. Whatever concern or indecision prompted your call or curiosity, you will receive insightful perspective…in the cards and in conversation that flows from it.
It’s what I do: I help others follow their dreams; and in the process, I live mine.
My beautiful goddesses, it is my pleasure to offer and include these card readings in your membership. Because that frees you to call me when you need to talk and find peace or insight about something. It’s like calling AAA for roadside service when your rental car keys are locked in the car; your membership is golden.
Life keeps moving, evolving; and we certainly need another perspective sometimes. Our nature is to process these happenings through words…writing, conversing, seeking deeper wisdom. My nature is being a delightful spirit goddess partner in your dream-following and creating.
A lovely exchange and partnering, wouldn’t you agree.
Talk to you soon. – Anne
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
Life is a game. And you have all the pieces you need to play right now.
And I believe we do have all the pieces we need to PLAY right now. (I emphasize PLAY because that energy is Creative-Spirited and Fun, Attracting energy. It’s Light and Open… to Inspired Delights!)
This one is in the Kindred Spirit Center today … opened last night when a colleague and her daughter were waiting for a young man to finish a guitar lesson.
Seeing it today, I was compelled to find the remaining border pieces. It was so close to being done…only I could find no more flat-edge pieces…
You have all the pieces you need to play right now…
So I took a closer look.
What if some pieces … already placed … were not in their correct places? Interesting thought.
Sure enough. Two pieces that, while close, were not exact fits. Each seemed to work at the time. Only the art — and fit — were slightly off.
Once exchanged, and correct pieces moved to right places, my frame fit together perfectly…
There’s a metaphor here for Life … and Relationships.
Some pieces seem to fit–maybe not exactly, but good enough …we think. How many have discovered that good enough really wasn‘t after while? And then we find what is….
I marvel how Life is so amazingly precise. We receive all the pieces–of information, resources, angels, inspiration–in perfect timing–to play out our life story and roles. …
There is a rainbow river flowing. Trust it, play in it. We don’t have to create the river, or the rainbow.
Don’t push the river; it flows on its own.
What if we play with a lighter and freer sense of allowing, knowing that our particular puzzle of life has all the precise pieces we need to play … and grow our greatness in … right now? It’s a process…and there are clues.
The Life Skills of our time are more expansive and spiritual and playful than our standard Doing and Logical mindsets. Clearly, we are beings of spirit and light, and Life works with a precision and perfection that’s amazing!
In honor of birthday month; I’m celebrating with a gift.
Purchase a Life Skill kit. It’s an easy place to start. A few common themes coming across more lately:
- Job Transition / Loss / Needing a Change (re-storying You in the aftermath)
- Money … inner game, spirit and soul, being-instead-of-doing, and allowing-and-receiving elements, of abundance flow
- Spirituality . searching . needing simple and feminine-sensitive-spirit-centered . inner-peace-finding, bridges, personal path-taking
- Confidence and Personal Power – healthy boundaries, self-worth, self-talk
- Environments of support and how to create them
- More …
Be gentle with yourselves in the process. Lots of love. – Anne
It’s Tuesday; and that means there’s an e.d. goddess community conference call tonight at 8:10 pm Central time. It’s a ‘share-what-you’re-reading’ kind of call, connected to one of those three spiritual Self-Commitments I ask of clients and groups who work with me.
To be reading something daily that makes us feel good, something that inspires us, something that empowers our sense of self-worth and abundance, something that speaks to living at the speed of love…from our heart and soul in ordinary time…feeds and fuels our spirit mind and being. Bringing our voices to such words, with one another, amplifies that.
How would your life be different if there was a place for you, a circle of women, sharing inspiring words like this regularly; a reading and re-story-ing personal-renaissance circle, celebrating and supporting our growing…
Call-in access details included with registration, or ask.
Meet you on the call! – Anne
