For many of us the New Year tradition of making new spiffy plans and resolutions often just doesn't work. It's too soon-- we’re not ready yet--in the fallow of winter. Often times I like to create Vision Map for my year. This January felt far too early. But now that energy shifts, and we start to feel the new year cycle of creativity returning. Are you noticing this in you? If you're hungry to see, feel and express the visions that have been germinating in winter’s quiet, I've got an idea to manifest them more easily.
The body and how we look is such a source of conflict for many women. It seems we can’t live with it and we can’t live without it. We are compellingly drawn to beauty: in ourselves, in others, in things, in life. Sometimes women are scorned as superficial for this pursuit, but I’ve come to recognize this as an intrinsic soul quality of the Feminine, which is why we are so enchanted by it. Many of us are blind to our own beauty, though. We’ve been conditioned to believe so many things about our own value and worth—many of which
It's almost the weekend, but before I head off line, (One of my Soul Care practices, how radical is that?) I want to share about something coming up in just over a week. You may have seen mention but I want to call your attention. Good News! SisterSoul Salon comes to Cave Junction! How do we manifest from our Feminine Center? What if CREATIVITY is a Spiritual Tool or Practice that keeps you aligned with Feminine Soul? Because that is the key: If we truly trust guidance, our connection to (and as) Goddess/ Source in human form, we must shift
Here we are, Independence Day--beyond hot dogs, flags and fireworks, what is it really? It’s that day in the US when we celebrate our separation from an archaic, monarchic system and started to create something new, different, egalitarian and self-governed. A more expansive way to lead a nation. Regardless of our opinion of it now, we can step back and see what a cool and courageous experiment this really was. How do we take this leading edge impulse for freedom and creative leadership into our lives now? Maybe because it’s summer, I’m noticing many are feeling this call for freedom,
As we sit at the Summer Solstice I'm feeling blessed, after co-leading a delicious ritual workshop, so I wanted to share some Soul food from The Magdalene Path that might be relevant for you right now. I've got a super special announcement--look for that in a day or two. Until then, here's an excerpt from Chapter 3, The Path of The Divine Feminine, and a Practice to take it into your life. Great Loss Mary Magdalene says, "With the loss of the Divine Feminine, the Divine Masculine lost his partner/consort. He lost his balance and his Self in the Divine deism
Wow, it’s been a wild ride since the middle of the month, huh? Many of us sense that we are really at a tipping point. We just entered a New Moon. It is becoming more clear where we are in alignment with our soul-selves and our purpose, and where we are not. And guess what? All the stuff that is challenging right now? Too much on your plate? Not in alignment. Is your life looking like a bad dream, or someone else’s idea of an ideal life? (Not bad, but not spectacular, either?) I know how that happens! I’ve been

As we swing into winter and our annual time of reflection and review, (see above!) it's easy to take stock of what we've created, making lists and stacking up accomplishments and accolades. And that's helpful. But sometimes we lose track of what we truly yearn for along the way. This process, from chapter 6 of The Magdalene Path, has been moving in me lately, so I share it with you. It's not your typical "end of year review" process, but a different take on "planning", by looking into what's calling to you from your future. Let me know how it
