What’s Really Needed to Uplevel Your Work & Live Your Calling


Re-Aligning with Your Desire: Inside & Out Sometimes even the most inspired and aligned plans go awry. The distraction of the holiday weekend didn't allow time to adequately absorb and consider this mastermind group. So I've decided to put of the start date. Let me know if you have questions and we'll see if it's a fit for where you're at. I'm excited to work with those who jumped up and said YES, and I've got a few more spots if you're feeling moved. Bringing a Dream into Reality Maybe you're like a talented (& popular) acupuncturist I know. She

Time to Step Out & Offer More of Who You REALLY ARE


Lately I've talked with several colleagues who feel called to shift their work in big or subtle ways. See if any of this sounds familiar: One talented acupuncturist knew what she wanted to be doing, but wasn't taking action. There were lots of conflicting opinions swimming in her head. Once we addressed the internal confusion/conflict at the root, all kinds of purposeful action happened. A multi-passionate therapist I know is feeling called to something bigger inside her. She isn't clear of the details, but knows what she's doing isn't reflecting all of who she really is and what she offers.

Something Bigger Calling to You?


Bringing a vision or dream to the marketplace takes more input and energy than we can sometimes muster on our own. It requires a careful balance of Masculine-style action (doing) with Feminine receptivity and allowing (being) to manifest our vision. Too much of the former leads to to exhaustion or burn-out, while too much of the latter leads to time passing with nothing happening. It takes finesse. Or it creates a unique kind of depression or anxiety. Confusion, illness, boredom, too. Most people somehow assume they "should" be able to manifest their soul gifts on their own, when, if you really

May Day is Mary Day


May Day! May Day! How did that come to be a call of distress? Most recently in the early 1900s May 1 has been a day of protests, supporting worker’s rights and unions. That’s curious, because prior to that May Day was Mary Day, in honor of the Blessed Mother. And  perhaps to secretly to honor the other Mary, the Magdalene, as the leader and “Apostle to the Apostles” she was known to be. This holiday was pasted on top of the Celtic celebration of the blooming of Spring called Beltane. (Think maypoles and maidens.) What is blossoming in you?

How Your Winter Dreams Burst into Spring Bloom


The Equinox is just past and greenery is exploding all around. Finally. Here in the Pacific Northwest we had a very intense winter. Perhaps you too. So we’re glad Spring has arrived, like never before. And with it, new birth! Seeds (bulbs) we sowed in the fall are starting to bloom. Winter was rocky for many, with crazy “weather” inside and out!  For many of us, the elections shook what we knew or expected and turned things sideways. Regardless of your feelings for the outcome, a strong emotional current has been stirred up. Now, perhaps finally, it’s clear that we

What’s Next for YOU? {feedback needed}


It’s been a while, and not because I’m ignoring or avoiding you. 2017 is a big year already—can you feel it?  We're rounding the end of the first quarter and spring is afoot. Whether you hate it or love it, changes are happening. The women’s marches in January were the largest gatherings EVER. Peaceful and positive, they catalyzed  a massive wave of civic engagement! Women are more activated and inspired than ever--we're ignited. Such practical expressions of the Sacred Feminine awakening in action. So many women (and men) are sensing that this is the year to step up and make

New Year – New Vision


Now that we've rounded the corner into 2017, you’ve hopefully had time to rest, reflect and digest all that happened this past year. For many, with big personal and collective challenges, it’s one we’re happy to leave behind. Last night I was completing my annual review (I shared the process with you in my last article—if you missed it, you can read here)  and I had a burst of inspiration. Have you taken the time to really harvest the gems of your year, then release 2016, and put it to rest? Have you taken time to allow in your dreams

Foster Deep Reflection: Review Your Year


We’re at that trough of the year. This year has been one of challenge and setbacks for many. Transitions taking WAAAY too long. Great miracles and breakthroughs too. Regardless of what your year’s theme has been, as we turn the wheel of the year, it’s time to regroup. Call forth a new version of yourself into being, as the old one clearly does not fit any more. Maybe the adjustment is slight but potent, maybe it’s huge. That’s your call. As we slide into the deep darkness of winter we're surrounded by celebrations of returning light at Solstice, Christmas, Hanukkah

The Goddess Coloring Book Kit


Sometimes we need a little help to get our creative juices flowing. (I know I do!) So to aid you (or a loved one), I created a coloring book for grown-ups: 22 Feminine Soul images fresh from the pages of my sketchbooks. Coloring is mind-neutral, easy, and relaxing. Research shows it reduces anxiety and creates clarity and peace.  It allows you to create and daydream, use color, shape and form, without having to fill the blank page yourself! Ah, simplicity! These images are designed with ample space for you to play and express yourself. Color outside the lines, add your

It’s Now or Never Time


Happy Holy Days, Dear One It's snowing outside and the halls are decked. The season is upon us. With so much beauty surrounding us, what possibly could I have to add to that mix? I wanted to offer you a little something special and make it easy for you. Then I realized: THE GODDESS COLORING BOOK! I've been so quiet about this little gem, I didn't even offer it on my website for the first 2 years I sold it. Silly, huh? So I put together a creativity kit for someone you love. (Maybe that's yourself?) Scroll down and see
