How Be a Rock in the River of Life

Everywhere I turn, there seems to be another wave of bad news layered on top of this celebrity who’s separating along with the economy going kerplunk. It feels like we’re stuck in a Netflix series called ‘You’re Not in Control’ and the plot’s taken a major twist in a dark direction.  And it’s only Season 1.

The plot twist appears to be tied to a lack of control breeding a sense of pandemonium that threatens to overwhelm and drown this planet’s sanity, safety, and peace.  It’s part of the age-old struggle that’s followed mankind since the beginning of time: the quest for survival and evolution.

Hence the dramatic change…

We’re experiencing a truly remarkable dimensional shift of time, energy, and consciousness. The invitation to be like a rock in the river of life is what faces us daily.  It requires such a level of inner strength, integrity, and fortitude.

So how do we manage?

Let’s start by being kind to ourselves so that we can be kind to each other.

It sounds so cheesy, right? Yet, the Golden Rule is a true measure of a heart’s purity.

So many of us in the world project our ideas, opinions, and beliefs, trumpeting conditions, patterns, and ideologies that are being broken and examined for a reason.

This is a period of scrutiny and the 20/20 lens is clearing the filters. This is a period of time where the script is being re-written.

When we’re kind to ourselves, we shift the self-deprecating conversation that happens within and focus only on controlling the thoughts and emotions that pull us away from our Center, our place of being the rock amidst the storm.

Kindness begins with acknowledging that we all have similar basic needs, wants, and desires.  The more we focus on what we share, the more it strengthens our ability to carry ourselves and each other through any challenge.

In a way, it’s a soul language that’s seeded from awareness and respect.

Once we initiate kindness in our lives, we can continue to cultivate that energy by creating a practice that grounds and centers us on a daily basis.

The news, people’s opinions, and our empathic natures cause us to feel the immense energies of the world.  Sometimes it requires true unplugging to tune into what matters – our connection to the moment.

Grounding and centering can look so different for everyone yet serve a universal purpose of connecting to Source energy. It’s a uniquely personal experience that can help to remind us of our place in the world.This is what feeds our inner battery, recharges our faith, and supports us in our journey.

When we tune in to greater energy and purpose than ourselves, we open to receive a higher level of love that helps us grow and evolve.

As we tune in to a greater Source of Love in the Universe, we activate the power of gratitude.

To be a rock in the river, we have to hold the energy of gratitude in our blessings. It’s what gives us the room to grow in true awareness of how connected we are to Source.

Gratitude is like our vitamins and when taken daily, it nourishes our body with light and elements that help us attract and magnetize more.

So be a rock in the river of life.  Cultivate a grounded, kind, and grateful Center so you can truly be an anchor of light in the world and do so much good!

The Invitation

The Invitation

There is an invitation that awaits you every day when you arrive back into your body, this plane, and this world.

It happens once you open your eyes and your mind starts to show you the agenda, stories, and ideas that set the tone and mood of how you begin.

It’s a pattern that we’re so used to that we go into auto-pilot. We go into our routines of work, life, home, relationships, and behaviors. It happens so subtly because our complex mind is always thinking, deciding, flagellating, and reflecting. When we react, it often comes from our internal library of canned responses.

Patterns happen through habitual and psychological actions. They’re often seeded at birth when we observe our role models and how they react and relate to life.

In the journey of awakening into your thoughts, identity, and awareness, there exists the invitation and it’s called conscious choice.

Conscious choice gives you the power to define your beliefs, values, and standards in a personal way that’s deeply aligned to your integrity. Every action and reaction comes from a place of awareness in how your input and output can ripple affect the world. Conscious choice is an awakened choice because your Divine nature recognizes the Divinity in another and this leads to a more open-hearted way of seeing the world.

It’s an upgrade from your normal patterns of thinking. It lifts you to a place of wonder, humility, grace, and joy. It bestows respect and kindness upon others. It’s the invitation step into a higher way of Being.

So how do you answer this invitation?

1. Accept your worth, your place, and your purpose in the world.

You have a right to be here. You have a reason for being here. When you recognize that you are incomparable, you begin to stop looking outside of yourself for veneration or acceptance. This happens because you consciously choose to see yourself as a part of the Divine which bestows your birthright to be here.

2. Consciously choose to be neutral in all things.

It doesn’t mean you don’t care or aren’t plugged in to what’s happening in the world. You can choose to stay abreast of current events without allowing your emotions and heart to feel pulled one way or the other. Sure….there are grave injustices that happen every day and there are people who are there to fight for their rights. You can consciously choose to support by empathetically listening, abstaining from judgment, and seeing the big picture.

3. Be a Light for others in the world.

The world is full of complainers, haters, and judges. You can choose to give in to other people’s issues or you can consciously choose to shine your light. This means you can simply be you. You can radiate your peace, hope, prayers, blessings out into the world without worrying about whether it’s good enough for someone. When you consciously choose to be a Light, you spark that awakening and curiosity in others.

4. Ask for a Day of Heaven on Earth

Why wait till you’re dead to experience Heaven when the conscious choice is to experience it with full awareness in this plane now. You can live in a state where life can flow easily or you can choose resistance in every turn and corner. Consciously choosing and asking for a day of Heaven on Earth is acknowledging the gift that Creator offers through the invitation. When you ask and you believe…it’s exactly what you receive.

5. Ask yourself, “How do I consciously choose to behave/feel/act/think today?”

When you first awaken, instead of going into auto-pilot, grabbing your phone and losing your precious time to the digital world, ask yourself this important question. “How do I consciously choose to behave/feel/act/think today?” If you consciously choose to feel good and happy, then you’ll find your mood is uplifted. If you consciously choose to behave in a kinder, gentler and more peaceful way, you’ll find that your day is brighter.

So what happens if you get the opposite effect?

You awaken into drama and chaos. Your thoughts are filled with dread and worry from your day before. You just don’t feel like you can shake off the blues. Your relationships are still challenging. Your kids won’t leave you alone. You feel like you just can’t get a break.

Does conscious choice still have an influence?

Absolutely. The invitation in applying conscious choice can influence how you react and respond to any situation that faces you. Conscious choice is rooted in balance, equilibrium, and trust. No matter what the world throws at you, you can handle anything when you apply the conscious decision to see the outcome higher.

The Dangerous Land of Stagnation and How to Break Free

Are you feeling stagnant in your life?
Do you feel like you’re just maintaining?
Are you wondering how to get excited and motivated again?

Do you know why I’m asking those 3 questions?  It’s because I know that feeling too well…almost embarassingly well.  That’s why I want to discuss with you something very important…the discovery of liquid gold.

A few weeks ago, I was feeling stagnant in my life, doing what was necessary just to keep the flow going.  I wasn’t particularly excited about anything at all and actually found myself feeling kind of ‘bored’ with what was happening.

Now, this is quite unusual because I feel like I’m living the life I have always dreamed of. I work from home, set my own hours, love what I do, have a supportive and loving partner and a super creative life.  However, I felt like I was going through the motions – like I was “just maintaining.”

I didn’t realize how dangerous it was to operate on “just maintaining” because you ignore the signs that your body needs attention or help as well as write off the boredom as ‘part of life.’

However, this place of ‘just maintaining’ can cause you to fall into the land of stagnation where you find yourself waiting for inspiration to strike.

That’s where I was and I felt a slow burning current of frustration of not knowing what was next.

It wasn’t until an impromptu date broke me out of the jailhouse of waiting.

My partner and I went to see a very old, roots reggae band called Black Uhuru play at Flamingo Cantina, a legendary Austin venue for reggae music.  One of Jamaica’s classic reggae bands, Black Uhuru has been around for over four decades, spanning a musical history that has been impactful, influential and launched many musician’s careers.

I’d heard their music for many years and found myself automatically dancing without thinking. The lead singer, no longer the original, belted familiar songs that caused the crowd to ripple in excitement.

However, it wasn’t until Duckie Simpson, one of the original founders, opened his mouth and sang a song that my heartstrings were plucked.  It was like hearing the original band through the sound of this one man.

I closed my eyes, falling deeper into the rhythmic trance.  In my little three feet of personal space, I began to really move, surrounded by a wall of friends and family.

I lost all sense of time and space as I felt a kinship to the nyabinghi heartbeat of the song. Perhaps it was my mood or a deep soulful cry for help – I felt something stir. I don’t know how it happened or when it happened, it just did.

In the depth of sound and the cadence of beats, I saw and felt something so amazing yet fleeting.  It was like a ray of pure golden light pierced right through me, touched the apex of my heart and flooded my blood with vitality.  Every cell, molecule and breath felt like it was super-infused with light, making me vibrate at such high realms.

I felt alive. I could see the music being played. I could feel sounds reverberate through me. I could taste, see, touch and feel God in every part of my being.  I felt like I was being plugged in and electrocuted awake.  It was like drinking liquid gold.

I left that night, walking on Cloud 9, feeling like I had taken some kind of happy, magic pill. The world around me literally looked brighter and full of color. That liquid gold energy watered my surroundings, making me see the beautiful potential and energy of The Creator in everything.

The next day, I still felt it – that feeling of sunshine running through me. It gave me energy and lifted my spirits, allowing me to breeze through my work. Sessions were easy and connections felt authentic. Focus became sharper and I completed my tasks with ease. Even money flowed in like magic!

If only it was like that every day! That golden, light feeling stayed for a few more days and slowly began to ebb away.

That’s when I started to panic.

I wasn’t ready to let that go and fall back into the stagnation of life’s patterns but how could I hold on to it?

Thus, I began to search for ways to hold on to that feeling of drinking ‘liquid gold’ and feeling absolutely alive.  Food, activities, gardening and my regular tasks didn’t inspire me.  Books didn’t invite me in.  Social invitations made me want to stay home.

Damn…was I going to be stuck in the land of stagnation?

Well, it’s funny how life works.  I was resigned to returning to my fate of maintaining until a little text message changed my world around.

The message said this:  ‘Hey! Our friend is moving down to Austin and wants to play keyboards in the band.  Do you want to play the bass?’

All of a sudden, I felt a bolt run through me.  There it was!! I felt like I was being hit with golden lightning that infused my veins with excitement!

What could I say but ‘Sure, I think so.’

So I did what any musician who doesn’t play that instrument does. I rented a bass guitar.

I came home, plugged it into my Fender bass amp and plucked the strings. The deep resonant notes just made my insides quiver and my smile widened. It was like sipping a cup of liquid gold.

I began to play.  Each note became the foundational backdrop to music that I had written and composed for many years as a keyboard player. It was like a reunion between lovers once the bass filled in the deep layers of sound.

Instead of thinking that I was learning a new instrument, I kept reminding myself that I was picking up where I left off.  What a huge difference that made!

And…I’ve got to admit…I’ve been hooked now for the last two weeks. I simply can not stop  playing, thinking or dreaming about this instrument.

It’s given me something so fun to look forward to.  I try to get my ‘real business’ work done as quickly and efficiently as possible so I can play music. I make room and time now to practice where before I thought I was too busy. It’s sharpened my focus because I look forward to my time of rest and playing.

I began to ask myself, what other ways could I maximize that feeling of drinking liquid gold and being excited about living and working?

Drinking the Creator’s liquid gold through finding something new is a key discovery to breaking the mundaneness in life.

Here are a few suggestions to help keep your focus, vibrations and energy high so you don’t drop into that land of waiting and stagnation.

#1. Learn a new language, skill or instrument
⁃    When you learn a new language, skill or instrument, you create new neural pathways in your brain that wires how you perceive the world.  These new pathways help you stay creative and active because you expose yourself to new stimuli, opening up potential avenues within your mind to create, attract and manifest.  Learning also helps you improve your multi-dimensionality as a human being, keeping you young and plugged into this ever-changing world.

#2. Plug into a new habit or activity
⁃    In order to break the routine-ness of life, you have to implement and create new habits that take time to imprint in your psyche and environment.  Whether it is starting a new work-out program, doing more self-care work or testing a new system in your life/business, you have the opportunity to shift and up level your way of existence.  Plugging a new habit takes dedication and commitment so patience with self is critical.  Also, consistency and follow-through will help strengthen your character and help you accomplish anything you set your mind to.

#3. Challenge yourself to make 1 new recipe per week for 12 weeks
⁃    Food is a vital part of your life and a contributing factor to your health.  By trying out one new recipe a week, you introduce yourself to a variety of flavors, spices and tastes.  Expanding your palate also increases your sense of the environment around you. Challenging yourself with creating or making one new recipe also improves your relationship with how you eat, take care of yourself and communicate with your body. This is a great way to also bring your social circle into your food experiment.

#4. Book a trip in the future to take
⁃    Nothing stimulates the senses and invigorates the spirit like taking a much-needed vacation. Booking a trip in the future gives you something exciting to look forward to and plan through out the year.  It also helps you save for the journey, focus your efforts on budgeting and create a sense of urgency because of your deadline for departure.  By getting excited about going away, your mind creates new ideas to help you manifest your needs for your trip as well as helps you get organized in your life so that when you leave – you can really unplug.

#5. Recommit to your vision
⁃    Face it, if you’re not feeling motivated to work on your business, career or self then you may have a disconnect with one of your visions for your life.  Haven’t really ironed out what kind of vision you want for your life?  This might be a cause for the stagnation and lack of inspiration.  One of the greatest favors you can do for yourself is to spend some time mapping out your vision for what you’d like to accomplish in your life.  Each week, review your vision and see what actions you are taking to align, attract and manifest that outcome.  If you find yourself not taking ANY action at all for weeks on end, you might want to assess whether that vision is really what you want.

#6. Sign up for a series of bodywork for healing
⁃    Chances are, if you possess any kind of nurturing quality, you probably put others before yourself on a regular basis.  You may be operating in a less than optimal state but keep on compensating because you don’t want to take that time out or are simply unaware of your condition.  When you sign up for a series of bodywork – whether that is acupuncture, chiropractic or massage – you are giving your body a new pathway for existing.  When you release pent-up energy, pain and stagnation, you evolve into new states of feeling good and allow yourself that gift of healing which can motivate you to take action in your life.

#7. Go out into nature once a week and go for a walk/hike – consider this a treat!
⁃    Nature is a great place for re-setting, allowing your mind to enter into a place of silence and communion with the land around you.  The Creator’s energy lies untapped in the natural realm as we explore our ability to feel rejuvenated, calm and grounded. Going into nature once a week helps you detox from a digital world where you are constantly plugged in. This is where creative ideas can explode when you can get away from your own environment and plug into new sights and sounds.

#8. Genuinely compliment a stranger or someone you don’t know once a week
⁃    Want to break out of the stagnation of feeling bad? Compliment someone that you meet randomly and make sure that compliment is genuine and sincere. It will catch people off guard and also invite them to open up to you. A random stranger could become a friend, acquaintance or supporter.  Best of all, complimenting someone makes them feel good which naturally spills over into your realm of energy as your fields communicate unspoken words. Make this habit become a positive influence in your life and you will find more blessings appear as you rain down blessings on others.

So there you go. I invite you to try any one of these suggestions to keep that energy of liquid gold flowing through your life.

The land of stagnation can be a trap that can cause you to lose momentum, energy, hope or motivation.  Don’t get stuck in that place. Commit to breaking out of any traps that hold you here and know that there is a way out.  That way out will get you excited about life and truly grateful that you are on this soul journey at this time.

And if there is any way I can help break you out of this stagnation loop, please let me know. For now, I am simply content to play the bass and feel the Divine in each note.

Is there a connection between Karma and Health?

Recently, I experienced a rather debilitating situation that made me really reflect on what karma I had accumulated to attract the injury into my life.

For weeks, I’d felt a small spasm on the left side of my neck grow and become progressively more troublesome. I tried to work with the situation until I reached a point of mind-numbing pain, being blocked in my work and having difficulty sleeping. Plus, I was an emotional mess.

I really struggled with trying to take care of it myself, but it was not until my partner pleaded with me to get professional help that I finally did. The spasm on my neck, thanks to my continuous efforts to massage it, had finally grown to a large lemon.

I. Was. Done.

I found myself at the chiropractor’s office, explaining my situation and feeling pretty helpless. I’d been in there three months previously with a similar injury and didn’t follow through on their suggestions to return for repeated visits.

He listened empathetically and asked me to lay down on the table and turn my face completely to the right side. He then asked me to take a deep breath and I suddenly felt an excruciating POP!

I nearly jumped out of my skin and the table when that pop came. I turned my head and saw what looked like a Mideival syringe of torture in his hand.

“This is an Activator,” he calmly smiled, seeing the look of disbelief and fear on my face. “The Activator is a spring-loaded, hand-held mechanical that provides a quick, low-force impulse at specific points.”

If I wasn’t ready for the first pop, I certainly wasn’t prepared for the other pops that followed.

Each spring – loaded adjustment felt like it was pushing me into other dimensions and forcing me to confront my humanity in a vacuum of cuss words, tears and howls of surprise.

That Activator triggered something fierce inside that frozen muscle spasm. So much so that it caused me to ask what I had done to deserve that punishment.

After going home and applying sports tape as suggested, I began to process what was happening. The tape immobilized my neck, causing strange, tingling sensations to erupt on the crown of my head, my forehead and the areas behind the ears/occiput.

I realized that the blockages and pain all occurred in the areas where I receive channeled information for clients. Furthermore, the spasm was on my neck, the area of the body where opinions, judgments and communication was stored. This was also the area where we either chose to repeat Karmic patterns or not. Geez….

What did it all mean?

Through articles, research and communication with my Soul Council, I discovered that karma affects us on a physical, genetic and energetic level through injuries, illness and conditions. It affects everyone differently and constitutions, genetics and lifestyle can influence these karmic moments.

Because we are living biographical storehouses of infinite possibilities, choices and potentials, whatever we experience is contained in our energy fields, soul and DNA. For every action, there is a reaction as well as a consequence.

Our karma comes into play when we are faced with situations that open a door for us to walk through. This door opens the next level of experiences. I call these ‘trigger events.’ For some, it is about relearning new patterns of thinking, behavior and beliefs. For others, it’s about taking action and accountability.

Throughout our lives, we experience different waves of karma that influences our health, wealth, relationships and power in the world. Sometimes, you just have to ask yourself, “How many more times am I going to have to deal with this?”

Karma Waves of Injury and Illness

The first wave of karma initially appears as a sign for you to wake up and take notice of how you are behaving or operating. This may appear as an injury or illness, giving you insight that something is not flowing in the right direction. This is the first opportunity to awaken from your routine as you find a method to control, cure or alleviate the injury or illness.

If you don’t take actions to shift your behavior, the second wave of karma could reappear, reminding you that initial injury or illness left a memorable mark in your DNA. This mark now contains the information of the initial injury, and it’s unknown what sequence of events trigger the second wave from erupting.

For some people, it is not immediate. For others, it’s right away. However, the second karmic wave offers another opportunity to address and treat what is happening with your body on an energetic and physical level.

When you experience second karma around injury, illness and disease, you have to examine a few things:

• Are you still operating in a way that is causing negative karma to appear?
• Are you still ignoring the signs that your body may be asking for help?
• Are you taking action only to not follow through?
• Are you paying the price for this karmic event?

The second wave of karma offers the opportunity to take action. These pro-active actions could mean shifting dietary habits, stopping destructive patterns(i.e. smoking, drinking, pornography, drugs), shifting choices of activities, and increasing psychological health support. For some, it may mean finally going to a health practitioner and following through on their advice.

Unfortunately, some people have a difficult time shifting and through repeated actions, karma appears for the third time. This can possibly cause devastating effects including cancer, multi-organ disorders, strokes or repetitive injuries.

By the time the third effects of karma occurs, this is a sign that the body’s memory of disease/injury has permanently been established and is now part of the present construct in the form of a diagnosis. During this third wave of karma, people may be experiencing treatments for recurring injuries or conditions. This can contribute to feelings of helplessness, frustration and depression.

The third wave of karma can be challenging for many people to the point that shifting or taking a different approach to healing stops them. There is a dangerous bio-feedback loop that gets created where accountability for health shifts to blame, resentment and perhaps even anger. This causes an underlying level of stress to constantly exist.

In reaction to the diseases or injuries, you might give up hope and simply stop trying. If you do not learn or at least attempt to understand what is happening to you, this can seal the Earthly lesson as a chapter to replay in the next incarnation.

So how does this affect your  health?

Whether we realize it or not, our physical health and actions hold patterns around self – power, accountability, permission and belief. When we choose to eat or act in unhealthy ways, we pay the consequences for it with our vitality and peace of mind.

If you are experiencing your first karmic awakening to take better care of yourself, then listen to your body. You may need:

assessment and support from your health practitioner (MD, Naturopath, DC, Acupuncturist)
• supplementation and proper foods to make sure your body’s process are operating at its peak
• rest from an over-active and busy schedule
• information about your constitution, allergies and familial conditions that are hereditary
• to stop the offending habit or situation that is contributing to your condition

If you are experiencing the second karmic awakening, then there are patterns that you need to address. This is a situation that has now repeated itself more than once and is influencing your vitality, power and purpose. You may need:

• added support from your health practitioner to strengthen your immune system, speed up your healing abilities and fortify your defenses
• blood tests and other diagnostic tools to determine if there is a deeper problem underlying your health issue
• treatment in the form of medicine, therapies and counseling to help you get better
• new methods or patterns of living (this is a big shift)
• non-traditional healing methods to support your process
• to journal and reflect about your healing process so that it is not locked in the sanctuary of your mind and taking up extra space

If you are experiencing the third karmic awakening, then you may have a history of repeated visits to your health care practitioner with diagnosis that are now a part of your medical history. Your medical situation may have shifted more to maintenance, comfort and trying to stay on top of the disease/injury before your symptoms beat you. You have your good days and you have your bad days. In that case, you may need:

• support from family or friends to help you with household chores, meals and errands to decrease the pressure or burden on you
• physical assistance in order to get around
• medications taken consistently to manage your illness/condition
• psychological or psychiatric support to assist you with emotional stress
• financial help for the bills you’ve accrued from increasing health care costs

But what about the people who choose to take great care of themselves and still get sick?

Injury, illness and disease have a four part connection:
1. Karma
2. Environment
3. DNA
4. Evolution & Natural Process

Balancing these four is a delicate process as we are biological and chemical beings expressed through pH, complex human circuitry, empathy and constitution.

The Record Keepers state that some people have soul contracts around health to help them understand their humanity, ability to change and take charge in their lives.

So what do you do if you already eat well, get plenty of sleep, feel emotionally balanced, take your supplements regularly and manage stress properly and still get sick?

I suggest that you discover what your karma around health is so that you can best help your body live at its peak capacity. There are many ways you can do this:

• Self-assessment and personal history – Examine yourself and see how your actions contribute to your outcome
• Consider genetic testing such as 23andMe.com or through your physician
• Consider getting lab work around inflammatory markers, auto-immune conditions as well as a comprehensive metabolic panel to get an insight on the state of your organs
• Ask your family about history of diseases or conditions
• Assess what you have placed in the health sector of your home and see how this could be contributing to repeated injuries or illness.
• Open your Akashic Records and experience a holographic body scan

Wherever you are on the health journey, know that it’s a personal one. Your choices, actions and beliefs can change, flex and adapt based on what you are experiencing. No one can really know what you are going through inside except yourself.

So please know that self-judgment, guilt or blame will not do you any good on your path. In order to ride these different waves of karma, you must find a way to temper the inner voice that criticizes how you may be acting, feeling or being inside. This conflict only feeds the negative energy required to pull karma into appearing.

Certain things that you do – no matter how hard you try – may not shift an inevitable outcome. Please know that you are not here to play God and choose who stays or who goes. That burden is thankfully not on your shoulders.

You are here to learn these lessons around injury and illness. Perhaps one of the greatest gifts you can receive is understanding why that illness or injury propelled you into a place of service. Wherever ‘that place’ is that you eventually reach in relation to your injury, illness or disease allows you to honor the fragile dance of humanity and embrace what you are here to do in the time you have.

As for my neck, I found such relief with the chiropractic adjustment that I committed to two more months of treatment, including acupuncture and increasing my hydration. I could see the immediate impact in my work, emotions and relationships. I know this….I’m worth it and so are you.

This time karma…I got this.

Women in Business: 3 Tips to Increase Success and Wealth as a Spiritual Entrepreneur

Women in Business Do Things A Little Differently…

Women in business struggle with marketing, growing their company, reaching their audience and manifesting wealth & success.  As a successful holistic entrepreneur, I have worked with hundreds of clients to help them improve their spiritual entrepreneurship, understand the blocks influencing their path and manifest wealth.

In the article, ‘Are Women ‘Manifesting’ Their Way to the Poorhouse?’, Alice Williams of The Sydney Morning Herald discusses how women use manifestation as a tool to help them get clear on their business and vision. Maria Puncheon, aka “Miss Moneypenny” explains how manifesting can backfire, causing women to feel inferior to their male counterparts, get stuck in the implementation stage of their business or question their ability to be succeed.  Through positive thinking, vision boarding and a solid business plan, female entrepreneurs can get clear on their actions, understand their financial landscape and implement their idea.

In 7 Business Lessons for Spiritual Solo-Entrepreneurs To Avoid Losing Your Savings Account,  Romila “Dr Romie” Mushtaq, MD from Huffington Post discusses how to save your time, money and dignity when you are operating as a spiritual solo-entrepreneur. She covers important tips such as owning your expertise, having a monetization strategy, being fiscally responsible and working with a clear vision statement. By openly sharing her mistakes, vulnerable moments and lessons, she details the importance of the business vision and intuition being aligned with the right clients for the best outcome possible.

Elements of Spiritual Entrepreneurship

After reviewing these two articles, I discovered that women in business can use their intuition, experience and these  three elements of spiritual entrepreneurship to help their organizations succeed and grow.

1. Clear vision – A clear vision helps you to operate in alignment with your business’s mission and plan.  It gives your business the foundation from which to grow, allowing you to meet your goals and customers need.  A clear vision also helps you stay focused on what you are here to do.
2. Financial Awareness – Paying attention to how your business operates, along with monetary flow in and out, allows you to have a pulse on your business’s health. Being aware allows you to spend wisely, budget and grow as your brand grows.  Talking about money and feeling empowered shifts many female entrepreneurs relationship with prosperity and success.
3. Monetize your Platform – In order for a business owner to be successful, they have to be making money and sustaining their growth. By creating a way to monetize your services or products, you can build a profitable source of revenue that reflects your mission and vision.

To summarize, women in business can use spiritual entrepreneurship, financial savviness and monetization tactics to operate organizations that are successful, holistic and empowered.

TODAY changed all of that…

How to Empower Yourself During Times of Change & Transition

Today is Inauguration Day and it brings mixed feelings for me as well as for many people.  Right now, our world feels divided between progress and undefinable change as the face of leadership in this country shifts hands. I found myself faced with this realization early in the day, observing the swell of emotions and opinions of discontent rolling through social media and the political stage.

I could feel the tug and pull of drama, inviting me to distraction and I said to myself…

“WAIT! NO!  There’s gotta be another way. I’m going to make the best I can of this day because…THIS…My Life…is the ONLY stage I can control.”

So I turned off the TV and silenced my email and social media stream.  I looked at my list and made note of my priorities. I grabbed my paperwork and headed to the Foundation Community Center and the Health Alliance for Austin Musicians (HAAM) enrollment center.  I decided that with all the changes happening in the Affordable Care Act, I would TRY and see if I could qualify for health insurance.

Now mind you, here’s a little back story that might give you insight on the significance of this cause.  Over the last 16+ years that I worked as a registered nurse in a major acute care hospital system, I never had health care coverage. Through these years, I’ve been un-insured and paying for all my medical and dental visits in cash.  I’ve been truly blessed that I’ve not had to incur any major costs related to health care.

I operated this way because I chose to work PRN (as needed), which allotted me the highest wage per hour but came with the sacrifice of health and other benefits.  I chose to do this because I valued my “freedom” and didn’t want to be subject to someone else’s rules about my schedule.  Despite the lack of health insurance, I took great care of myself, my daughter and my partner.  We try to maintain healthy behaviors, eat as balanced as possible and take care of ailments as well as prevent conditions from becoming chronic.

I tried many times to qualify for affordable health care but I found paying over $500.00/month for “health insurance” – ridiculous and unjustifiable. Especially because this “health insurance” wouldn’t cover the kind of services I WOULD use on a normal basis such as acupuncture, massage or chiropractic adjustments.  In addition, trying to pay that much as a nurse and single-mother with a mortgage, car payment and business are just too much. So I operated in this fashion for many years, without any coverage or control.

Today changed ALL of that.  

See…I couldn’t afford health insurance at the job I had so I had to QUIT my job and work for myself so that I could afford health insurance through this mandatory government program.  And then, when HAAM stepped in, they covered my monthly premiums from my health plan, essentially giving me the most AMAZEBALLS insurance ever.  THIS is the benefit of living in a city which tries to take care of their musicians.  THANKS AUSTIN!

What? Is this for real you ask?

YES! And like I said, I’m going to make today the BEST day I can for myself because this is the only stage I CAN control.

I invite you to TRY and THINK this way when times get tough and you can’t seem to see the path ahead of you.  Simply put, you’ve got today to make a difference. That’s why during times of uncertainty and change, we have to push all the distractions around us aside so we can take just ONE STEP in a direction that empowers us.  And this step is different for everyone for we all have our own journeys and experiences to live.

This one step starts with one day and could be every day if that is a pattern that you would like to integrate into your life.  That is how habits become formed and how things get done.  When you accomplish even the smallest thing, you feel pretty good inside and if you truly love yourself…you’ll want to continue that feeling.

And honestly, continuing that feeling of goodness within is going to be important during these next four years of a new president.  Because we are in the forefront of change, we must cultivate our own inner barometer for peace and centered-ness within.  We cannot allow the external world to dictate how we create our inner realities.

So I hope you take advantage of the transition that is occurring in the world. Learn to control the only stage that matters – your stage and don’t forget to big yourself up and celebrate when those small single steps turn into BIG rewards in the end!

Bless up,
Anne

How to Activate the Most Important Area of Your Home

Happy New Year! If you’re like me,  chances are you are welcoming this new year with open arms and anticipation.  And there’s good reason to celebrate.  We are emerging from the end of a 9-year cycle and entering into a 1-year.  This is a year of starting anew, aligning to your soul path and asking ‘What’s next?’ Isn’t that exciting?!?

A good friend sent out an email recently,  encouraging people to make the most of the first 27 Days of January as this influences what appears in your life this year.  Well,  I got on it and made a list of things that I wanted to accomplish in the 1st 27 Days.  I decided to practice kindness and self-love by not creating an impossible,  inhumane list of tasks.

Simply put,  I wanted to create tasks and intentions that were fun and filled me with a sense of accomplishment when I finished. This year,  I’d like to do things differently – be more in control of my space,  commitments and energy. This year…I decided to stop doing New Year Resolutions.

How to Integrate the Best & Worst Parts of Yourself This Year

Integration? What are you talking about?

article-hair-essentialsI don’t know about you, but there have been some moments throughout this year where I found myself asking, “Is this for real? Are you sure I’m not watching some kind of messed up reality show?”

Yes…2016 has been quite a year; one that for sure will go down in the memory books for all its ups, downs and unexpected outcomes.  Transitions and changes were key themes as we were faced with our mortality and questions like “What am I really doing?”  along with “How much longer can I wait to change?”

Many of us moved through the motions of everyday life while others moved mountains to make miracles happen.  Some of us shifted our perspectives and eased into a placed of relaxation and trust.  Others felt the pressure mounting as they faced their walls of resistance and made their leaps of faith.

Each of us have been triggered by forces beyond our control, initiating our reactionary systems to reach different stages of equilibrium and homeostasis. As dense, 3-dimensional beings, we’re so sensitive to changes in pressure, pH, sounds, vibration and stimuli.

How to handle transitions at this time…

Transitions….That’s the word that keeps whispering in my ear.


So much of my life has changed this year, and I reflect and see those big transitions occurring in many people’s lives as well.  It’s a time of stretching, expanding, disintegrating and examining.  It’s also a time that I feel The Creator is asking, ‘What do you really want?’

I felt like I had been asking for many years for certain things to appear: change in job, change in patterns, change in health, change in relationships….just a shift.  Gradually it came, piece by piece, inviting my heart to open and surrender.  That’s pretty freakin’ scary, you know that?  What do you do when what you ask for appears? Well…you do what comes most fearlessly and naturally. Either you run or you stay.  I chose to take a stand and stay.  
 

And then life started to change…


It began with being OK with myself and everything around me.  It began with relaxing into how everything appeared and trying not to change or control it. It began with letting someone special in. And it required a certain level of patience and trust.

Patience? Not my strongest suit. I want things to happen – like yesterday.  And every time I get impatient and snarky with The Universe, I get spanked into realizing that even with $25.00 left in my bank account, I would be taken care of. No matter what.  It happened every time.  So why couldn’t I just relax and let it go?

I wasn’t really sure what to do.  I had already hit a brick wall like a hundred times, and I realized that I had reached a point where I was standing in my own way. A conversation with a friend led to a deep insight that I was  judging myself for WHERE I SHOULD BE or SUPPOSED TO BE rather than accepting where I was at.  That made me reflect on years of heartache and frustration that I carried for expecting my businesses and practice to be somewhere else other than where it was at.   

And that is NOT cool.

Why would I do that to myself? Why do we ALL do that to ourselves? Is it a pre-programmed, self-sabotaging pattern that dates back to our early Christian roots? Or are we simply too block-headed to see when we’re in our way?  Is it so difficult to recognize the lessons and blessings as they are occurring?  

Ah….that may be where the answer lies.  As I sit back and ponder on all the events and circumstances that have happened to get me to this point, I realize that there is not one part of the past that I would want to change.  Neither the good nor bad because I realize that these are part of our Earthly education, our training in this human vessel, our soul’s curriculum.  This is why we are here.  

We came back to experience this rich, multi-sensorial ,multi-dimensional reality and one another because we have so much more room to grow.  We are ALL learning. And that is why there are so many transitions occurring in our lives and in the world right now.  We are collectively experiencing an evolution on a personal and global scale.

So how do we participate as fully as we can?

Live.  Live your life in full pursuit of your passion, purpose and joy.  Live because it is a gift to wake up and be able to take a breath.  Live because you have that option to give thanks and witness the abundance that is your birthright.  And most of all…live becausewhere you are at right now is exactly where you are supposed to be.

Take in these transitions.  Don’t fight them.  Instead…give thanks for them.  Allow the spirit of gratitude to fill your life and realize that no matter what is happening – you are going to be OK.  And when you can relax into that, you can do ANYTHING!

See…don’t you feel better already?

Bless up and Give Thanks!

Shapeshifting Your Future Self

19890783_sWhat if I told you that your magical abilities are available at your disposal and you could use it to transform your future?

What if I told you that shapeshifting your future self would not only help your present state evolve but also increase your productivity, business, health and vitality?

Would you be ready?  Better yet…would you allow the fear of your greatness to override your limitations of your past and present?

If you are ready to make 2014 the most amazing, powerful and successful year ever, then Shapeshifting Your Future self is imperative for tapping into your full potential RIGHT NOW!

2014 is right around the corner.  January is a time for creating resolutions, making changes in your life and initiating new promises to yourself.  WHY WAIT?

Why would you wait for January to begin the process of initiating change when you could start your new year running strong and already in alignment with what you truly want to manifest?

That is how important shapeshifting your future self is in the month of December.  Don’t wait for the new year to start to make the goals and changes a reality.  Begin the process of shapeshifting before you even begin making resolutions that you might break, committing to promises that you may not be ready for or agreeing to start when you’re not sure how you want your outcome to look.

Shapeshifting your future self is a combination of Integrated Energy Therapy (IET), sacred geometry, and DNA rewiring that allows you to tap into a future lifetime and bring that energy and information into your present form by working with your soul council and your cellular memory.  It is activating those future programs to align with your present life and call in the people, events and circumstances to make that a reality.

This is a missing link in how you manifest your goals and dreams into existence.  It works with the human energy field, the veils of human consciousness and the violet ray.  It requires permission, acceptance and receptiveness of your power and abilities.  Most of all, it requires your presence and participation.

Please join us Wednesday, December 18, 2013 from 7:30 – 9:30 p.m CST for this guided teleseminar call.  This multi-sensorial experience will allow you to prepare beforehand by thinking about what future self you’d like to activate and tap into.  During the call, you will bring up that future life and open the veils to bring that energy and information into your present reality.  By working with your soul council, masters, teachers, loved ones, angels and guides, you will easily and effortlessly bring in this imprint into your present life and initiate the progression of your personal evolution.

Because this work is extremely powerful, I encourage you NOT to participate if you are faint-of-heart, scared of your own greatness, or resistant to bringing the necessary change to swing your life to a positive direction.

Shapeshifting your future self is right for you if:

    • you are ready to bring information into your life RIGHT NOW

    • you are ready to make 2014 the most successful and prosperous year ever

    • you are ready to align to your soul’s purpose and path

    • you are ready to make your goals and dreams a reality

    • you are ready to connect with your divine partner

    • you are ready to impact your financial prosperity

    • you are ready to step into your power

    • you are ready to catalyze your life into its next state of evolution

    • you are ready to live without fear and trust in your soul’s path

Do you feel your engines revving up to go?  I AM!  Let’s do this!

Please join me Wednesday, December 18 for this powerful practice. You will receive homework prior to the teleclass and then a copy of the meditation afterwards.  This process is so powerful that I am literally giving it away because I know how much we all need it to evolve and do our work in the world.  And guess what?  This process is only $10.00.

That’s right! I could have charged WAY MORE for this class but this is not what it’s about.  It’s about my commitment to assist you at this time in your personal evolution and growth.

The question is….What are YOU waiting for?
