What Mainstream Culture Isn’t Saying About This Time

2021-04-22T22:02:31+00:00

We seem to be in a time where the old ways don't work, as they have in the past. Planning, plotting, time and scheduling seems particularly amiss. While the old methods won't work, the new way is not fully on-line yet. But like all transitions, it's not always smooth or easy-peasy. There are gaps and glitches. Frustrations that what we're used to doing, no longer does. (Sometimes its not available--completely absent--other times, the old tools are visible, but not functional as they once were.) Either way, massive challenges and heart ache result. These are rough, untended initiations. Looking outside, we

Are You Teetering In and Out of Balance?

2021-04-22T22:11:51+00:00

We’re at the turn of the wheel, goddess. Signs of spring, like daffodils and tulips blooming and Equinox this weekend. Oh, and the 1 year anniversary of the shutdown of the pandemic. Yeah, that. While most people acknowledge the upside of all that’s happened, I'm noticing so many lately feeling vaguely (or wildly) out of sorts. There’s a stirring sense of unease. You might be feeling a sense of exhaustion that’s not quite mental, physical “issues” more present, maybe a sense of malaise, dread, despair, or loneliness. That sense that “something’s not quite right” but what? We’ve all been

Listening to Feminine Soul Even When…

2021-04-22T22:08:05+00:00

How are you with changing habits and patterns, beloved? It's a hallmark of way makers, change catalysts, entrepreneurs and new paradigm lovers. Moving in the mystery, flowing with inspiration, pausing when it's quiet. For me its about backing off the masculine success patterns I've been so good at (yet don't always serve me) to follow the flow of divine feminine inspiration & grace to beget action. It's a dance: the balance of masculine do and feminine be/receive. (interested in this topic? There's more here.) To truly live, love and lead in a Feminine Soul centered business (and life), it's all

Nourishment In A Hard Time: A Pause

2021-04-22T22:17:32+00:00

How did we go from Happy New Year to terrorist uprising/white privilege temper tantrum at the US Capitol... all in a week? The toxic masculine is hanging on to the patriarchal systems we’ve seen for years. Do you feel battered or overwhelmed by Current Events? Resilience is needed! And a wee timing adjustment, flowing & adapting to this moment. (Read on below.) If you’re feeling wobbly with political unrest unfolding in the US, on top of unrelenting embittered pandemic news.... I hear you. It's intense if you "go there." We know we are in a sea change, but we are

Tips for Gentle Launch Into New Year

2021-01-06T21:09:53+00:00

It's hard to believe 2020 is over and we're in a New Year. I hope the holidays were delicious and replenishing--even if unlike any others. While I took a good space of downtime, I also delivered 5 Praying the Mystical Rosary virtual experiences that sisters raved about. (So gratifying!) Notes like these warm my heart! "What you're offering here is so sacred, so holy, it goes beyond our notion of schedules and clock time. It's very moving--I was in tears at times. ...To have permission to re-imagine the way we do things. How radically empowering.” - CH "Love the

Divine Feminine Mysteries at the Solstice (&Beyond!)

2021-01-06T21:25:25+00:00

This is such a powerful time! There's no denying that, with this unrelenting pandemic, eco-tragedies, political drama, and social unrest. It seems we are being stripped of who and what we thought we were and finding the gold within. Not always easy, and a sometime painful process, no? This month has so many energy blessings embedded within, it may just be the silver lining we've been waiting for. I'm seeing some great opportunities for amplifying your soul light, if you know when and where to activate your magic. With some ways to deepen. Following Divine Feminine guidance and the

The Invitation: Go Deeper

2021-01-06T21:23:44+00:00

I don't usually write on the weekends but I woke up with morning inspired about something that's near to my heart. For weeks I've felt called to share with you something that's rocked my world. I'll admit, the process of getting to this moment has been slippery with change. If you've found this year to be a roller coaster or emotions, you're not alone. Maybe you've even plummeted into a dark night of the soul. Maybe you've soared and thrived. Or, a little of both. The way I see it, when life gets so over the top, (like it

Where is Your Attention?

2020-10-15T01:00:35+00:00

Sweetheart, we're living in a difficult moment. (You've noticed?) {eyeroll} In times like these, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed, off-kilter and distracted. Right now, we're doing all we can some days just to stay afloat emotionally. (Right?) In the face of all this, our personal passions, dreams and goals can seem trivial--and hard to access. Those creative projects, dreams and sparks of inspiration that we thought we’d have loads of time for (maybe at lovely writing retreat getaways)...are getting sidelined. Do you have a book or other creative project that you can't seem to find the time/space to get

A Missing Link Is Re-Awakening Now

2020-08-11T20:01:08+00:00

A reader commented on an article on this blog last week, and upon review it seems relevant. So I freshened it up a bit, to share with you. It's timely because we're all going through various waves of emotion as our world is so deeply unsettled. So much loss, uncertainty, unclarity, lack of real direction... Not knowing what's next can really eat at our core sense of Self stability. Unless we find a deeper source to align with. We find it together. In community. With other who reflect the Truth we know inside (when we forget.) Sisters. We find

Powerhouse Practice To Restore & Replenish

2020-07-10T23:20:23+00:00

We're 10 days into Magdalene Month. Her feast day in the Roman Church is July 22, so I wanted to share and celebrate her wisdom, at a time when we need it most. I even activated the Magdalene Path Sanctuary group on Facebook, as a place to gather and share quotes, practices and downloads. (Request membership & join us!) Sweet soul, I see that right now, so many of us are navigating these big changes with courage, grace and poise. But it's not easy, as we're hit with waves of exhaustion, doubt, fear, fatigue, negativity. Ay Caramba! So much
