This day is an energetically powerful one: International Women’s Day, a New Moon with a solar Eclipse, and there’s a great awareness rising also– a coming together of voices — women and men celebrities this week, on behalf of equality for women and girls globally.
Our goddess call tonight goes more into the Power of Flow, and particularly Synchronicity. We have those today… energies are coming together dramatically. These things are always openings to Go with the Flow; knowing the current of the river is helping us, propelling us forward faster and farther than we could do on our own power, through our own efforts…
Abraham says, “Nothing you want is upstream.”
Nothing we want is upstream… I have pondered that. We are so tempted to go against the current; we’re told we have to work hard, that life is supposed to be hard, that we are supposed to paddle against the current…
What if they’re wrong? And what if that River of Life has us exactly on course for OUR personal life? And all we have to do is go with the River and navigate around and through whatever is part of that River Ride? Like putting your boat in a river and using your oars to steer, it’s a workout … and isn’t it a FUN one.. that you willing chose to experience?!
Enjoy playing in that river with me on tonight’s goddess call. Or delightfully and fully engage in your own River Ride. Go with the Flow and Synchronicity of where it leads you. This is YOUR LIFE TIME here…and take a chance that the River of Life is exactly and perfectly on course for YOUR personal Life… This work we are doing can be exhilarating; would you agree?!
Blessings, much love, and honor this day and all its synchronicities… Breathe, exhale, appreciate, and be alive and present and you. – 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
We finished Big Magic last night, embracing divinity in creating.
A story of sacred dances in Bali looked at What is sacred? and What is not sacred?
In her story, it was only high-minded Westerners who had trouble with that one…because they insisted on separating and having some tangible way of discerning one from the other. It’s where many get hung up and sidetracked from experiencing divine magic and celebrating its blending and powerful transforming metamorphosis.
I loved her In Conclusion words:
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)
I LOVE that! — those paradoxes that are equally true — and I especially love this: Only when we are at our most playful can divinity finally get serious with us.
Divinity and playfulness create magic…
Elizabeth Gilbert’s Big Magic was a wonderfully worthwhile inspiring read.
Next week Tuesday night’s call, we’ll begin The Power of Flow.. how flow and synchronicities, and meaningful coincidences show up and bring more to us!
Go with the flow this week, notice interesting coincidences, and remember, Only when we are at our most playful can divinity finally get serious with us!
Have a Great Week! Looking forward to our talk on Tuesday. – Anne

It’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.
I’d love all of you to enjoy a set of my personal WonderSpirit Love-Your-Life Practices collection. I’m offering it again for the new year at holiday special prices.
These are positive support when you’re growing who you are…
They can be ‘partner packs’ to open meaningful conversations with a young woman you care about.
When a whole book might be overwhelming; these are not. These are selected pieces, quotes and wisdom, I’ve collected, created and compiled, to share and be of service. .. much like great teachers who selectively sift and share their best materials to guide and support their students’ learning.
They are personal heart2heart topics that include confidence, self-esteem, money and prosperity through heart-centered pursuits, job loss and new directions, soul work and spiritual exploring, relationship skills, and about six or so more.
All of them speak a language empowering to our feminine, creative, sensitive, dancing spirit and well-being.
Purchase individual topics here … a $7 investment.
Blessings and beautiful happenings as you way unfolds… Much love. – Anne
Hello lovely goddesses. You know I’ve been hanging around brothers and working with guys maybe a little too much when I post one like this. I giggled writing it… and also added a lot of good practical stuff too. Enjoy and happy holidays! – Anne
We gather more this time of year; formal and informal. In groups and settings that are a diverse mix: from family and friends, to professional colleagues, to others we’re meeting for the first time.
What to talk about? …. Helps to come with a plan. I like humor and easy too. Here’s a little of both to help you out. …. Little ‘FARTS’… to get to know someone better, make small talk, and maybe make a memorable connection. ‘FARTS’ is an easy-to-remember acronym of what to talk about:
F – Family or Friends in common. Have you seen…? Are they still…? When you see them next time, tell them…
A – Arts. Theater, movies, fine art, art fairs, favorite artists; or maybe they are art makers and creators too.
R – Reading. Books read this year, magazines, articles one enjoyed, or recipes. What we’re learning, engaging in, fueling…

December has so much in it — creatively, emotionally, and fiscally. We look back and review a year of memories. …
And in the process, naturally come to preferences, thoughts, and desires about what we’d like to be different moving forward. … There are some things we can do something about; others not….
I added some favorite quotes to my home page this morning, ones that have inspired and offered comfort; and some links for sorting and processing and preferring differently. …tools, I call them. Life is easier with tools for the task at hand.
Blessings and much love. Breathe deep, hold, exhale. A year holds many memories, heart tugs, delights, and defining moments.
I’m offering Heart2Hearts this month for some in-person quality-time creative dates, of toolbox sharing and desires of the heart defining and designing. I’m in this with you… 2015 held much–emotionally, creatively, fiscally; 2016 is full of amazing possibilities…
PS I know a Fabulous and Colorful Amazing 2016 Life and Biz Planner resource… and a pretty amazing global community of goddesses and academy of resources for life soul art and biz too! In fair disclosure, these links are my affiliate links and I will receive a bit of financial support when you purchase through these links, which I sincerely appreciate. (Thank you.) I am also a several-year member and raving fan of these materials and the biz goddess who created them. Also, gathering here with other area goddesses who use these materials is something I would love and look forward to!
So much good stuff!! Hugs! And let’s meet soon. – Anne
