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
I've been moving through some big breakthroughs, these past few weeks. How 'bout you? I'm leaning in to what works for me (See Getting Your Groove Back-Time Tested Tricks, Tools and Totems) It's been week of big reflections in my world that have made it really apparent that even when things look good, I'm not there to enjoy them. I'm so focused on what I need to do to be successful in the future, that I am virtually MISSING my NOW. Freedom (c) 2013 Claire Sierra, MA I'm so busy trying to get to some nameless "there" that
I really am in the final edit of The Magdalene Path. The cover is updated (again!) and near completed. The subtitle is changed too: Awaken the Power of Your Feminine Soul. These things have their own timing. I'm not totally in control. How Divine Feminine is that? I've finally surrendered judging myself for how the process is NOT going. I'm in-joying what is. (Which is a lot!) We've been busy editing, designing bookmarks and CREATING A NEW WEBSITE!!! Here's sneak peek. Check out MagdalenePath.com When you go there, you can download a juicy preview chapter from the book, that reveals
I love retreat and renewal at the turn of the year. This dark inward time really inspires me to journey and reflect on what just passed, and vision about what lies ahead. So a week or so ago, I gathered together a roomful of women, lovely professionals from the education, healthcare and hospitality industry into a gorgeous log and stone Northwest lodge overlooking the Rogue River. The day was mostly clear and we sat around a great stone fireplace for Shift 2012 Retreat, sipping tea and taking turning by the hearth. (Snow stormed warded off--intention setting in action!) Whenever I
For some time I have been guided to live from the place that we are living in Heaven on Planet Earth (HOPE, get it?) . With all The Rapture talk this past week, I really noticed how I could embody this feeling of the Divine in life everyday. When I woke up Sunday morning ("still here"), I decided: The Rapture has begun. H.O.P.E. now. Why wait to get sucked up to heaven in order to feel joy and bliss? We are already here in heaven, and we just need to see it this way, to begin to make it so!
Lately I notice myself continually distracted by details of offering this work and sharing the message about the Divine Feminine. I notice that I am not getting much traction on 'The Thing I Need to Be Focusing On': the creative work I am guided to do (the book on Awakening the Divine Feminine with Mary Magdalene & creating art) as I do other "important" things first. Why does our big creative work not seem important enough to come first? Perhaps you know this story: I'm getting up and planning my day, knowing that what serves me and the world best
