I am grateful for each of you following my blog, dipping into The Practice of More Love daily going beyond the fear of, the lie of the mind, realizing, (real eyesing) the love that is all around you, following the charm that leads you to the next right thing and the next right thing. I will be on hiatus from Dec 26th-Jan 26th. Please visit my blog and browse the hundreds of entries while I am away. Keep the ember glowing, fan your souls into flame, knowing that I hold each of you, the connection we are experiencing, in my heart, thankful for the energy you bring, the commitment you send out as you read, instilling me with greater desire and passion. Have a wondrous holiday season filled with joy and the knowing that you are the miracle of this time. Thank you for your magnificent presence in my life. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
Say ‘Yes’ to Your Heart. Always. All Ways.
What if this holiday season, you opened your eyes in the morning, and began to name something you liked? What if you thanked yourself for naming something you liked? What if you named something you liked all day? And what if you thanked yourself all day? How would that feel? What if you practicing, as a point of focus, naming something you liked, was your life? What if you filled yourself, your spirit, your soul with something you liked throughout the season? What if your holiday destination, was a point of focus and not an outcome? What if you feasted your eyes on something you like, until it became your real life, one that allowed you to appreciate all that you are and all that you have? What if you knew you were enough?
Much of what mind issues, due to its primal nature, is fear-based. This can be evidenced by persistent, negative mind thoughts, that have nothing to do with present circumstance. You might hear things like, ‘Whatever it is, don’t. Its never going to work out. This is silly. You should stay home. Wow, you really screwed up this one. You and your schemes are ridiculous. You’ve humiliated yourself again.’
Instead of entertaining the musing of your primal-based, reptilian brain, why not do something else? Call a friend. Blow bubbles. Count gerbils. Step away from the mind thought. Your mind thought is distracting, detracting from an otherwise perfectly wonderful life experience. Practice selective hearing. Don’t let mind get in the way of your true purpose. Your life, your worthiness, that’s the point of focus. Mind is the distraction. If you want your life, distract the distraction.
What if today, you played the mirror game? What if you could see that what they spoke was always, all ways, a reflection of them? What if every time they pointed at you, they were actually pointing at themselves? What if everything they said revealed or concealed (and because they are concealing, revealing everything) something about them? What if you realized, (real eyesed) that it was never, ever about you? That it’s always about them? What if you could see that? What would you see?
There is no death. No dying. The body suit, yes, has its expiration date. But that which we are, being-ness, totally granted, is arrival, now, destination, beyond. We see so little. There are veils, enchantments, glams, keeping us in a continuum we call time and space. Past that, past the known, is life, our life, essence, whole-ness existing in and after life, death of self, total, total creationism, manifestation. Seeing. Deep, deep knowing. Consciousness of all of it. The vibration of that, that alignment with source is beginning, essence, pre-conception of you, of love.
Thanksgiving, giving thanks, for thanks, for grateful, for listing, for creating the switch plate on the train of thought that might allow the track to change and run toward that which inspires, allows grace, reprieve and the space for us to give thanks. Being thankful for thankfulness is a space on the way to giving thanks and in the giving, receiving it.
It has spoken to you, it has called you by name, you have heard it inside and yet you wait. It has written the words, offered itself, given it sound to let you hear and yet you halt. Hold on, hold back, stand still, or move the world. Hear it, remember, shout out loud and make me proud. You are all that there is, we are all that have come, we can change the rules and create with love. Dont blink, dont think, dont waste another drop. Drink full and long, sense every single thing, and expand your heart, as big as the world, as big as the world.
Nature doesn’t give its’ power away. And because you are nature, you are empowered. It’s you. You are the power, nature, holding the mirror to itself and reflecting you back. That powerful nature you see, is you, moving through cause, that which we call the life experience. Worship, adore, humble yourself in the awareness that you are the God Consciousness, the Unified Field, Totality within, and without. Nature’s power, which is natural to you, as it is in all of nature, is nature’s divine gift in and to you. You are therefore, immutable, limitless, the essence of extreme beauty and vibrant life. Your being is the purpose, the outcome, and the glory of existence in this physical plane. Love yourself, bathe in the knowingness, the being-ness of you. You are nature. You are power. You are love.
When you realize (see with real eyes) that what is going on here is not what is going on here. There is more. So much more. Close your eyes. Lift off. Above your body. Above the room, beyond the buildings, streets and moon. In the heavens its happening. Feel it? The change, new awareness, not new, but revealed; yourself as you, before you forgot to remember. Remember now. Know yourself back as molecule, being, soul, atmosphere, sensation, vibration, planet, cosmos, light worker. Let the energy wash over you, open your eyes and receive the new world.

This is it. Your life. Everything depends on it. Everything. The way you play, play by the rules. Or not. The choices you make, don’t make, make again. You can pass go, get out of jail free, anything you want, but you play this game as if your life depends on it. It does. It depends on how you play. Because if you are wanting to get the most out of it, you’ll be needing to put the most into it. So play, play with every fibre of your being, with indelible grace and unparalleled intention, deep passion, humor, and as many mistakes as possible. And love. Especially love. That’s how you win, you see. Love.
As an American I am saddened by all that is taking place in our nation. As a person I am saddened by the anger, blame and judgment being issued daily. I know that we are facing upheaval. I know too, that this compels us to change. Yet during this time of upheaval and change, it takes an awake nation to avoid the pitfalls of anger and blame. Divide and conquer are the tactics used by a regime hoping to divide and conquer us! We as a People United stand stronger. During this necessary chaos I pray there may be dramatic awakening and the seeking of solution, together. Let our integrity as Americans be exemplified no matter our party or position on particular issues. May we fight fiercely for each other to align as a nation, indivisible with liberty and justice for all.
You must understand, you are spiritual royalty. Velvet cape, crown, glistening jewels at the neck and a scepter in hand. Royalty. Every last one of you. Imbued with intention and filled with heart. And with that comes responsibility. The ability to respond, deeply to other. Love this world. Be brave. And above all, be kind. Dear hearts, rule well.
It is important to hold space for yourself, truly hold space for yourself. To look at your hands and say, “I really love these hands.” To look at yourself in the mirror and without flinching, see yourself and tell yourself, “I love this face, I love this body, I love this me.” You must let this resonate throughout every cell of you. It is imperative that you know you are worthy and admirable. Carry it with you into every aspect of your life. Because when you see yourself as the most valuable asset on this planet you have seen the truth. This is not egotism, it is selflessness. Holding space for yourself, granting yourself being-ness, you affect deep change. Practicing unconditional positive regard, for the self and others, grows more of that. It is the kind of love, so powerful, so righteous, it will change the world.
You see the abyss. How this life means everything and nothing and both at the same time. We have, in spirit, chosen to be here. We have a gift to share, if only we can move past the distraction, the destruction of mind to give it. Giving the gift of self, to other, including the self, is divine. In the giving of it, you see yourself back as the bearer of it. This is who you really are. This is your life. Despite what mind tells you. We see you. We need the gift you come bearing. The universe, because we have joined hands and hearts, conspires with us to manifest that which is inside of you and deliver it to us. Our spirits are hungry for it. Hungry for you.
The space between morning and night, where the clouds part into horizon, pink, peach, golden light, straight through to the unknown, between life and death, where light and dark, night and day, beginning and end are the same, creation, maintenance, destruction, all one, all creation. You lift the veil, see inside, spread your wings, around this physical plane, knowing yourself back, as all of it, the universe, totality, love, all of it.
What dreams did you have as a little girl, or little boy? What dreams would you like to dream today?
You, your radio, your running system, has a tuner. The human body, like a radio, can actually be tuned to pick up frequencies and air specific content. Depending on the range of the tuner and scope of the receiver, the dial can be aligned with content on a variety of frequencies. You are the instrument and you are the receiver. What frequencies would you like to receive? The dial is yours. What content would you like to air? What life experience are you tuning into?
You venture forth, expectant, waiting, yearning and there it is, the wall. Damn thing looks impenetrable. Probably is. Mind whirrs, making it impossible, all things. Shut the front door, shut all the doors save the one, long hallway of longing and knowing that this life is dream, able to sustain itself on pure emotion, the thrill of a kiss, the warmth of his memory and mine, savoring that, enticing beyond all consequence but the jump, high over and arcing beyond impossible to I’m possible, because on the other side is your life, your heart, beyond the fear is everything.
When you lead with your heart, you take the lead.
To each of you that posted ‘ME, TOO,’ I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I am an incest survivor and speaking out cost me dearly. Just a decade ago, this culture silenced and punished me. I lost friends and family dear to me. I lived in fear of being judged and lost precious aspects of life due to my childhood secret. I am relieved that the narrative is changing. I am happy that so many are speaking and being heard. In my eyes, you are warriors, courageous and strong in a time of great challenge. Thank you for breaking your silence. Thank you for doing what few have the strength to do. I know how hard it can be. I know how hard it can be to speak the truth. I know how hard it can be to heal the wounds. Even after speaking out, I remained a victim. Even after years of therapy and group sessions, I was unable to claim my victory. There was a full and wonderful life waiting for me, and I needed to figure out how to have it. So, I wrote it out. I described my journey from victim to victory in a book called, The More Love Club. If you’ve spoken up and you are still feeling hurt, hopeless, stuck, fed up, angry, confused or alone, please read my book. Please, read my book knowing that I want to reach out and let you know that I understand and that you are not alone. I hear you. I believe you. I know you. You are a magnificent, brave, powerful and perfect being. United We Stand. Thank you again. Me, too.
The Solar Eclipse August 21st, denotes an historical time of change. This change need not be ominous, but a welcome sign of growth and evolution. As we are spirit we may remain still. Yet our physical selves may experience turbulence. And so I invite you to let go. Let this change be excitement, the motion necessary for you to release that which no longer serves, making room for new life, new belief and new awakening to your most authentic selves. Embrace change, as you would surrender. For it is not the surrender, but the holding on to old ideas, opinions, judgments and old identifications of self, that hurts. Let this eclipse be the reflection of your soul. For you are Moon and Sun, perfectly aligned that you might shine even in the darkness.
Your parts, every cell, the dna, the who am I, its all you, your world, your experience, systemic; the integrity of the working parts. Your awareness of that is your life. Know your parts, what’s relevant, which synapses are viable. Decide what you keep, fund that which makes you flourish, integral, knowable, and love that, that which is you, which works, until that which doesnt work simply doesnt and that which does, is your world.
1.You are entitled to be happy with everything that you have.
2.You have the right to approve of yourself.
3.You have the right to admire yourself and your choices.
5.You have the right to find everything that is right with you.
6.You have the right to celebrate your life.
Joy is your birthright.
What if you were thankful for all of it? The supposedly good and the supposedly bad? What if every experience, every person, cell, atom, minute you spent beyond mind and the sum of it’s parts was situated in is-ness, not outcome or expectation? What if you believed that everything, everything that happens, is imperative for your personal growth, that nothing is wasted, nothing is done to you, but it is always, all ways, done for you? And what if you were truly humbled by every instant that is the experiential that you call your life? What if you chose gratefulness, no matter what? What would you see? What would you feel? Can you imagine (I Magi, bringing the gift of self to self) your life as a gift? One that is brought to you and given expressly from the universe, totality, in order that you might evolve beyond your present circumstance to reveal the immaculate being that is you?

There is no purpose. None. There is only experience. The merging with energy, totality, source, being self, expanding and opening to all that is you, all that is. No thought, but deeper, focus, moving with intent, bliss, beyond fear, beyond mind, or mind’s idea of, past reason, purpose or any other thing. Experience life, experience self, experience other, experience love, fully again and again. You have no purpose, but to be. You are the purpose.
We all know it. We forget to remember. But deep inside, when you close your eyes and completely relax, completely let go, its there. We’ve been here before. Maybe hundreds of times. We’ve lived and died and lived again. Close your eyes.
They all forget. We tell them not to and they promise, of course. But they forget. So we have come to remind them. You are light workers. You are in these physical bodies to shed light. Do not be fooled by the present ideologies of man. Do not be distracted by their anger, arguments, or their passionate denial. Shed light. Be light. Show the way. Let your light shine into the darkness that all may walk within and toward the source of all light and love.
When investing in self, (which is the most important financial concern of your life), it is important to note that money is the least expensive thing you will ever spend.
Ordinary miracles, dew on the grass, sun, tide, wheat stalks swaying, frogs near a stream, a thicket filled with fireflies, coyotes howling at the moon, a fat crow eyeing me from the telephone wire, small seedlings, nesting in a cup, everything it needs inside the hull. Your seed is already planted, inside, evident in the everyday miracle of you.
If thoughts were hammers, words the nails, we’d know we were building something, we’d know that which we thought, spoke, was creation, village, city, country, world, universe. Watch what you think, what you speak and see construct, foundation, studs, support beam, barn raising, community. What house will you create, what structure, plywood, brick, glass, plexi or shingle will you choose? Will you give it your most mattered attention, will you make it home? Will you lay the hearth, fill the rafters, secure the mantle with your heart?
We codify, describe, format, file, explain, define and its gone. That which is, is. It can’t be compartmentalized, structured, named without losing essence. To experience, viscerally download moment by moment, beyond mind, explanation, willing to allow the ontological nature, vibration, perfect timing and revelation of life, we become present, tangible, the breath of this universe, which in its very being-ness, source, is love.
Get ready. It’s coming. Can you feel it? We’re dropping pain, guilt, shame, who-I-am that thinks it is it’s history and telling a new, vibrant, I am that, becoming energized, stunningly revealed, pure being, reborn story. All that muscular structure built from struggle increases the velocity of the free fall. Sliding into ecstasy, the thrill of the ride, the rush of wind and joy of losing mind and standing firmly in heart. Welcome home, its 2017
What if you were the creator creating the creation? What if the world you lived in was up to you? What if everything and everyone was an extension of your story, playing out on the movie screen of your life? What plot would you write and who will play the hero/heroine? Will it be comedy, drama-dy, tragedy, history/herstory, or farce? Will you lead with your heart? Will you change the world? Will you stand for love?
As we approach the final hours of 2016 I am sending you all love and more love. Filled with gratitude for the hardships and lessons learned, my heart is overflowing. I am blessed beyond measure. To live in this time, and share the opportunity and possibility to be a warrior of love and miracle is indeed, an honor.
As you journey forth, please be kind and loving to yourselves above all. And remember:
‘There is no finish line, no end goal, except that you do it. In the doing is everything, because the finish line, the end goal, is you.’ ~ Excerpt from the upcoming Mind Matters: Part I: The Fundamentals
Take good care. Wrap yourselves up and bless your hearts. There’s magic out there and you are it.
Trump has been hired to represent all of America, not just the MINORITY of America (characterized as the majority by the electorate) who voted for him. He is elected to work on behalf of EVERYBODY. Do not forget, if you voted for Hilary Clinton, you are in THE MAJORITY of this American People. You are the majority and you matter. You matter to me and you matter to the sanctity of our nation. Together we stand to ensure that this president elect faithfully represents the constitution. He must protect and serve the American people. All of them. If he does not, cannot, we, the majority, will fire him. As Americans we cannot lose sight of who we are. We are by the people, for the people, ALL THE PEOPLE, no matter what. We are the majority. We have the power. Dont forget.
If you speak creation into existence (which you do), if you have the power to manifest with your word (which you have) and love is the greatest power, (yes!) greater than fear, greater than human suffering, greater than all obstacle, then will you lean in? Will you choose to be the brilliant magician you were designed to be? Will you imagine (I Magi giving the gift of self to self) quills of light shattering the darkness as you create from the heart?
It takes just one stormy mind thought//belief/trigger to download negative chemistry into the cellular structure of your body. One negative mind thought/belief/trigger downloads the negative neuropeptides of a tempest within that, repeated, can become a neurochemical cyclone. Your emotional, spiritual and physical body reels against a wall of feeling state that is deadly and deep. At this point navigating an emotional storm may seem futile at best. Yet the secret to navigating the storm is knowing who is at the helm. The cells of your body are your troops. The troops receiving the chemical download, are driven by your mind thought, your beliefs and your triggers. The cells in your body are responding to you. You are at the helm. Your neurochemistry is yours to command. You get to point your ship in the direction you choose. What ever you say goes. You are the secret in the storm. It takes just one positive mind thought/belief/trigger to start downloading positive chemistry into the cellular structure of your body. One positive mind thought/belief/trigger. Just one to circumnavigate the storm.
If you want to be loved, be love. Love.
Investment in the True Self is the Possibility of Transformation, which is essential for the survival of our species. It is the experience of totality, the universe, source, it’s secrets, mysteries and ultimate challenges that await, always, all ways within the authentic heart of man. It is the ability to kneel, head below heart, intellect subdued, that one might humbly experience the magnificence of this universe and ourselves in it. That in Investing in the True Self we cast out cultural (cult you are all) understanding of the self and other to embrace our human potential and the Possibility of Transformation with love and unconditional positive regard. Investment in the True Self, is giving in order that you may benefit in the receiving, that this world might be better for it.
In every life … there comes a time when you get to risk the loss of self, go beyond the fear of, the lie of the mind, stand before the gatekeepers (Self-Importance and Self-Pity), move through the Dark Night of the Soul, past the Valley of the Shadow of Death, fear, risk everything and release all, your entire life to save it, in order to claim what’s rightfully yours. Your birthright. Joy.
I am grateful for each of you following my blog, dipping into The Practice of More Love daily going beyond the fear of, the lie of the mind, realizing, (real eyesing) the love that is all around you, following the charm that leads you to the next right thing and the next right thing. I will be on hiatus from Dec 26th-Jan 26th. Please visit my blog and browse the hundreds of entries while I am away. Keep the ember glowing, fan your souls into flame, knowing that I hold each of you, the connection we are experiencing, in my heart, thankful for the energy you bring, the commitment you send out as you read, instilling me with greater desire and passion.

His name was Squanto, Native American, enslaved in his childhood, forced to become Squire to seafaring royalty. In Spain he fled and through a series of harrowing and magical circumstances ended up in Plymouth Rock during a fateful winter. He saved the Pilgrims, taught them how to, fish, fertilize, plant crops, corn. Because of Squanto, the Pilgrims, we survived. I am thankful for the soul of a man who forgave a willful people and saw past the color of one’s skin to spirit. For me, Thanksgiving is the valor of his heart, his courage, his humility and his great, great ability to love. Happy Thanksgiving all!
Once you see it, you can’t not, expansion, enlightenment (lighting up) that which is there and everyone has cover, obnoxious opinions, judgment, ticks, warts, barnacles and mind’s ideas. Wow. This is awake. Ignorance is actually bliss. And this transcendence, messy, the seeing, no shield, no blindness, just life, raw, unmasked, the kind that hurts. Welcome to awareness. No time for self pity, or self importance, wrap yourself in metaphysical cloth, send out quills of light, protecting and reflecting out the darkness, tend to the enlightenment, (that which is meant to light up), regardless, (regarding less) the cover and opinions. Because knowing it’s there, the lower energy, the vampire, non organic entity bellowing ‘Tis the Season, Lack People, Lack!’ allows you to stop feeding it and by investing fully in your own self worth, do your part. Achieving the greatest and most powerful of spiritual (spirit you are all) juxtapositions. Right now. Shields Up and Hearts Open!
There’s a lot to be done here before we can be said to have reached awareness, of other, ourselves, the world, the universe, our existence or even the slightest recognition of nature, ours, the worlds’. The beat of this drum, this life penetrates deep, underground, underworld, a profound calling for you to rise, stand, with open heart, full throat, fierce vision. Rise. Stand in love and be counted.
It’s everywhere. Spirit. In the trees, sky, ocean, dirt, rocks, me, you, the changing weather, plants sprouting. Can you close your eyes and open them too? Hear the call, like nature, a sense, a knowing, that guides? Listen to it whisper. The chant, an invocation of love. What if today, you quieted your mind, dropped into your heart, held out your hands and let love do the rest? What if you lived in possibility, miracle, creation and first press joy?
The mind is not good at compassion, understanding, love, knowing; the kind of knowing when you feel it in your bones, instinct, your gut and your being. The mind is limited by definition, by its idea of the human experience. The mind does not experience life. It experiences the mind’s equivalent of life. The spirit, the soul lives. The mind thinks. The mind thinks it lives. It doesn’t. The being lives.
The trick is to receive the light. Because you are limitless possibility, overabundant creativity, unbridled resource, supernatural energy, endless power, enormous perfection and superb light of being. Connected to source, in love, beyond mind, in waking imagining (I magi; giving gift of self to self), essence of life, you are supreme healing, pure and overflowing. Receive it. Open your arms. Inside the vastness of your heart, this precious good flowing within and without, like your very breath, the inhale and the receiving of that life force is you, your power. Arms wide. Heart open. The light is everywhere. All around and through, your spirit, soul, body and mind. Receive. Activate. Let the light pour within and without. Allow the healing of your being, that which mends all tears, breaks, holes in the energy of you, become the revolution. Know that. And receive. Bow before it’s warmth, like liquid love. Saying, ‘Thank you more please.’ Again and again. Receive the light that is you.
We’re wired for the jump. Every molecule, cell, atom, structure within meant to leap, quantum, into the unknown. When we risk, jump, leap, we know ourselves, become tangible, see ourselves back. In the quantum reality of risk and unknowingness we find ourselves, align ourselves with our true nature. Jumpers. Risk takers. Quantum leapers. All of us. Everyone. Get your fucking life. Jump!

You are like a diamond. Polish it, get the smudges off, and there’s clarity. The clares. Clairsentience, clairaudience, clairvoyance… True seeing due to extreme blindness, the kind that feels it’s way in the dark, knowing that slight lack of clarity, delving deeper into the unknown is the knowing. Look again. Because like all real diamonds, there’s imperfection. The human-ness, the perfect imperfect, that makes it real. The need to polish, to experience the self back, the motion of emotion, connecting you to totality, cosmic or not, in love, in service, imperfectly. And in that clearing, spit and polish, begin to realize, real eyes, that the imperfection is perfect.
Today, let your higher self lead. In the recesses, the hollow, the creases, inner fold of your world, beyond thought, mind, belief, there is space, small enough, growing, becoming shape, desire (the desire to sire), intuit, tremendous wave and opportunity. Call it ‘Seed’, ‘Core of Good Health, if you listen it speaks, undulates and smiles, charming you toward the next right thing and the next right thing, moving you closer, to self, the divine, to love. Listen to the stillness, the voice within, growing louder, clearer. Speak to those who know you, hear you, see you. Today, follow your heart. Love fiercely. Drop into your life.
What intention will you set today? What gift will you bring? Will you bring the gift of Imagining, the I Magi, Genie, bringing the gift of self? Will you listen to intuition and answer it’s call, letting spirit guide? Will you dance to the music of your soul? Allow yourself to embrace the childlike curiosity, the wonder and delight that is your birthright? Are you ready to drop into your heart and love your life?
Don’t let anything keep you from it. Not your history, not your friends, not yourself. Be authentic, live from your gut, your heart. The rest is culture, selling you a bill of goods, always selling. Don’t buy it. This is your legacy, your life. Lose the mind. Drop into your heart. Love, and all that is around you changes. And so do you. Become love and it becomes you.
