A lot of stuff going on energetically!!! As empaths/intuitives/psychics we tend to be a bit more sensitive to the energies in our environment and sometimes we can take on these energies without realizing it. There are a number of reasons this can happen, but it is interesting to note we are experiencing a lot of cosmic events that contribute to energy disruptions, too.
Cosmically speaking, we heading into Mercury Retrograde on Oct 21, which can be a period of hiccups for communication/travel/commerce. (personally, I enjoy merc retro periods...and I know I am not alone on this! lol)
Also, we have reached the end of the 11 year cycle in which the sun's axis rotates. As this polar shift occurs, the sun will be showering down all sorts of chaotic energies that most of us sensitive types might pick up. This is mostly harmless, but as many of you have felt during times of solar flares, your physical and emotional bodies may experience bouts of discomfort.
These two events alone are enough to throw one out of whack if you aren't aware of proper shielding techniques!
Here are five tips for shielding:
1) Be responsible for the energy you bring to the situation. Hold the intention that you are in control of your own energy; hold the intention that you will not take on any energies that do not belong to you.
2) Wear crystals or create a crystal grid that can help you ground and shield. Some favorites are black tourmaline (which emits negative ions to combat air pollution! This is also a good one for those who are often around electronic devices--which, let's face it, is pretty much most of us!) Also effective is garnet, providing psychic protection, and protection against all things *discordant* while increasing personal strength and willpower. Another personal favorite is amber, which is associated with Earth energy (grounding) and draws dis-ease from the energy body and transmutes it.
3) Space clearing and/or smudging: Smudging is an ancient native technique for purifying the environment of discordant energies and restoring a harmonious vibe. To smudge, one burns sacred herbs while saying a prayer or holding a specific intention to clear the vibes. As a sacred practice, it is wise to understand how to do so properly, applying proper respect to the process.
Space clearing can employ a number of techniques, from using energetic sprays to sounding a bell or using light from a candle to clear out stagnant energy and restore harmony.
I recommend you experiment and find what works best for you in your environment.
4) Mudras. Mudras are hand gestures that manipulate your personal energy to cause a desired state of being. The apan mudra seals off your energy circuits, moving your personal energy to form a "shell" around your body and allows you to emotionally center and refocus. Join the middle finger and the ring finger with the tip of the thumb; the forefinger and the little finger should be held upright. Hold the position for about 1 - 3 minutes. You will notice the shift. This can be done anytime, anywhere.
5) Meditation and/or Yoga. If you have the time to meditate, excellent! Do it! Twenty minutes a day of quiet contemplation, focused meditation or even active meditation has been shown to help manage your energy more effectively.
If you are not sure about trying meditation, have you considered taking a yoga class? Yoga is actually a great escape from the chaos of everyday life and taking the time to be fully present for an hour - 90 minute class is rewarding to your overall health/well-being. You get the physical benefit of exercise, the mental benefit of presence/focus and the spiritual benefits of prana.
Do not stress if you can not fit a full class into your schedule. The point is to use the time for YOU. If it stresses you out, it's not worth it. Try something else that benefits you, like a walk in nature, a little pampering, writing in your journal, or whatever nourishes the whole of your body/mind/spirit.
Journaling is underrated. Three pages a day. If you can commit to that, I guarantee you will learn so much about yourself! If you are in need of inspiration to guide you in your daily journal practice, check out my little community over on Facebook called "The Goddess Diaries" where we explore the Goddess in all her archetypal glory with daily prompts for exploring the Goddess within!

Recently I was inspired by this:
Jada Pinkett Smith's facebook page, living like "Tomorrow is not promised."
What a stark contrast to the usual hedonist notion of "live like there is no tomorrow." Reminds me of what I tell my clients: "Don't just live like there is no tomorrow. LOVE like there is no tomorrow!"
This Universe is thread together by the stories that we tell, and everyone enjoys a brilliant Love Story. I think it speaks to the soul’s number one desire-- to be loved.
Love is not something we DO. Love is who we ARE, and in this world of crazy-ass ADD distractions, it is easy to forget this basic truth.
LIVING like there is no tomorrow used to imply succumbing to hedonist pleasures. But I like the notion of LOVING like there is no tomorrow for true happiness. In the end, it is not how much money or cars or toys or possessions you have. These are external things that bring fleeting pleasure and don’t sustain happiness. The only thing that is real, is LOVE.
Sure get out and enjoy the sunsets. Read a good book. Take care of your body. And if you wish to be loved, how do you wish to be loved? Be that. Do that. If you are waiting for someone—your twin flame, your soul mate—BE your twin flame. BE your soul mate.
Always kiss goodnight! Don’t hold grudges! Hold your loved ones instead! What do you get out of toeing the ground when it comes to silly-nilly arguments with your loved ones? The satisfaction of being….right? And even if you are right, does this keep you warm at night? Does it feel as good as genuine hugs and kisses from your loved ones? If you love them, gracefully bow out and let them have this one.
Radical forgiveness. Life got less complicated when I started practicing radical forgiveness. Kind of in line with not holding grudges, except this one is not about them, but all about you. I believe that holding grudges kept us safe from harm back in our caveman days, alerting us to possible danger of those who intended future harm based on their past behavior. But the truth is that in this day and age of enlightenment, the best way for you to get over your grudge is to forgive.
Forgiveness frees your heart and mind from the shackles that chain you to outdated, ego-centered paradigms. Every night before you go to bed, forgive someone who has hurt you during the day. If no one has, think of someone from your past whom you may not have forgiven yet. I believe it is best to assume everyone operates from their best intentions. So, visualize them in their light, and just for sake of feeling better, assume that they are operating from their own highest and best self. Even if they have hurt you, it is not a reflection of their true self. You have to assume that at all times, everyone is doing their best, with what they know, with the resources available to them.
LOVE YOUR BODY! Take a moment right now to stop and express gratitude for all that your body does for you! What an amazing machine! If you are healthy, it carries you from day to day, pumping blood, oxygen and prana throughout without you having to think about it. If you are not healthy, you may have to think about it…but the truth of the matter is that your body works hard to make sure your soul has the experience it intended when YOU (Big You) decided to incarnate in this physical reality. The least you can do is to show it some nurturing care. Your soul needs your body to carry out its mission and if you are not taking care of your physical needs, you are missing the point of your spiritual purpose! Show some love by bathing daily, exercise and eating wholesome food choices. Breath work is so important for vitality and enjoying time outdoors reconnects you to your natural self!
Love your mind! Learn something new every day! If you disagree with something, try to see the other side. If nothing else, at least you will know what the other side is thinking and will be more informed when it comes time to (intelligently) express why you disagree with a particular *thing.* Debate is lovable. Arguing is steeped in lower vibrations and not healthy. Learn how to have a healthy debate so that you can love like there is no tomorrow!
TELL THEM YOU LOVE THEM! Never miss an opportunity to tell your loved ones that you love them! Goes without saying. But actions speak louder than words and to that end, never miss an opportunity to SHOW your loved ones that you love them! Paying attention to them when they are in the room with you, doing things that let them know you listen and care like small tokens of affection, giving space when needed, playing their favorite country songs when you really want to listen rock and roll…these small investments bring massive return in your relationship love tanks.
And I want to leave by quoting my favorite band ever:
“In the end the love you take is equal to the love you make.”~Beatles
Truth is a point of view, but authenticity can’t be faked. ~Peter Guber
My Name is Dawn and I'm a recovering Drama Queen.
At a certain point in my life, I came to the STARK realization that there were no knights in shining armor coming to rescue me. I know. Right? The awareness hit me with such a force that I fell right out of my castle tower and landed hard on my ass. And let me tell you...it has not been easy to lift myself up because drama has been a constant in my life for almost as long as I can remember. For many, drama is a learned "coping skill" we acquire early in life as a way to fulfill our unmet needs. Unfortunately, the more we create
drama and/or participate in it, the more we crave
it, and while I was growing up I was huuunnnngrrry
. Anything that happened in my life was fuel for my cravings--things were never easy
, and people were often so unfair
and I just didn't understand why i
t seemed as if the Universe constantly wanted to always piss on my parade
”…and by golly! I was sure gonna’ let you and everyone else know ALL about it.
Before I made the shift from this victim mentality to a more *mindful observer* perspective, I had problems taking full responsibility
for my reactions
to life’s events. I still wanted to blame others for my station in life, and my favorite excuse was, “I didn't get enough love in my early childhood.”
Even so, even if that was my truth, the deeper truth was that I was insecure and afraid. My life was a dramarama and that was good because it protected me from having to feel the insecurity. Because if there was an external event that I had to deal with, well then, I was not focused on my twisted inners.
And the fear?
Where do I begin? I was afraid of asking for what I needed because I didn't want to put others out. I was afraid to take action because I was afraid of failing. I was afraid of asking for help because it'd make me look weak. Looking back, I shake my head in wonder. Why, oh why did it seem so much easier to create chaos to navigate through the seemingly difficult changes in my life? Why?
For instance, during the early years of my relationship with my ex-husband, we argued a lot about our roles within our family makeup. We were young parents, college students, artists (he was in a rock band and I was a writer); we lived a pretty boho lifestyle. Still, I had certain ideas about how we should live as a family, and often times his creative pursuits interfered with my ideas of parenthood. While I appreciated and fully supported his creative endeavors, I really wished that he would make himself more available to help me in raising our daughters. I was often left frustrated by my unspoken expectations not being met.
One night his band mates came over unannounced at 10:00 pm to pick him up for band practice. After a long week of dealing with sick toddlers, I was looking forward to a quiet evening in. He asked if I’d mind if he'd go. I did mind, but I didn't tell him that. Instead, I expected him to read my mind and just know that my "I don't care" response really meant, "you better not go because if you do I will throw your clothes out the bedroom window onto the lawn below for all the neighbors to see." Needless to say, the evening blew up into a huge argument in front of his friends. I tried to guilt him into staying, and when he left with the boys, I screamed out the window that he'd better make himself cozy on their couch because he wasn't welcome back. I remember the dark silhouette of him flipping me the bird as he walked away, his friends shaking their heads in embarrassment and the sound of the neighbor's window slam shut across the street.
I then collapsed into a heap of tears, got on the phone and called my best friend and bawled my eyes out to her, recounting every pathetic detail. At 10:30 on a Sunday night. She consoled me, but I know she wasn't very happy about it.
And guess what? He didn't come home that night. Can I blame him? Sadly, I did blame him, and obviously there were far greater problems bubbling below the surface which eventually resulted in our divorce, but you get the point.
My manufactured chaos allowed me to disassociate from my lack of self-worth and fear plus it gave me a sense of superiority over the terrible circumstances that I was *forced* to deal with. If I could complain about all the shitty shit in my life, I was doing something
And for the longest time, I just didn't get it.
In fact, hop off the drama train was not as enlightened an event as I would love to tell, but it was a by-product of something else entirely. I didn't realize just how drama-driven I had become until I found laughter yoga. Developing an inner spirit of laughter helped me to see how manipulative I was, that LOVE is the only thing that is real, and that laughing about your troubles puts the shit into perspective.
The more I participated in laughter yoga, the more I shifted. It was through laughter yoga that I began to take meditation seriously, and through this practice, a veil was lifted to reveal a more authentic approach to life. Here is what I have learned about drama and what I do about it:
- Recognize there is energy behind the drama. Drama is not an emotion, but a conflux of volatile emotions driven by a surge of energy. Drama has the capacity to stir the soul to action, yet how we manage those emotions is key. Drama is a tool used to manipulate others into doing your bidding. It has the capacity to get your needs met, but it almost always burns your bridges.
- WITNESS THE EVENT, DON’T IDENTIFY WITH THE EVENT. The first step to making any kind of change is awareness. Detach yourself from the energy of the situation and simply observe what is going on. Choose to shift into mindful observer and notice the details of your life. If you are noticing an unusual amount of drama in your life, it is a sure sign that you have become disconnected from your authentic self. Drama is a trap of the ego--a false solution for facing seemingly overwhelming choices in life. This external chaos satisfies the ego's drive to feel self-important, giving it a *tangible* problem to fix, but it keeps you from connecting to your TRUTH.
- Respond, don’t react: The locus of control of a reaction comes from external sources whereas a response draws on inner strength. Responding is an empowered, mindful approach to an event. Self-awareness and constant self-improvement are the keys to responding to the storms of your life. If you know who you are, you are able to draw on that inner source and apply your wisdom. Reacting seeks validation from external sources and perpetuates the role of victim. When you give up your personal power like this, the outcome is usually never ideal. Ask yourself, what is your response-ability?
- Where your attention goes, energy flows. When drama is fed energy, it gets blown up even bigger. Therefore the trick to diffusing drama is to divert your attention to activities that will nurture and support you.
- Finally, if you are finding it hard to do this, remember to breathe. Always breathe.
Dear Fear (AKA Doubt/Insecurity/Shame),
You have gone by many names over the years, and no matter what you chose to be called, I took you in. You were clever, promising me "security" and "safety" if I only listened to you. Well, I did listen, but I have finally realized the difference between "playing it safe" and and "preservation of self." While it's true that sometimes your whispers helped me out in dangerous situations, for the most part, you abused your powers and I realize now the extent of your lies. You have exerted your will over me for far too long and, clearly, this is not a reciprocal relationship...I gave you everything, with nothing in return. I'm at a point in my life where I am tired of trying to please you. It is is exhausting trying to figure out which part of you I am dealing with and also, I’m tired of stroking your ego, making you feel so important at my own expense. If there is one thing in this world that I have come to HATE, it is how I shrink in your presence. If you really loved me, wanted me to feel safe and secure, you would support my growth, my expansion, my light. And you have never acknowledged me, THE REAL ME, and because you have never believed in me all this time, despite the fact I have given you my undivided attention and support over the years--when it was me who all this time LISTENED to you!--Well, you need to know that I have packed your bags and you are not welcome here anymore. I am breaking up with you. FOREVER!
You know how to do this! it is simply a matter of remembering the process. Before you incarnated into this physical realm/reality, your soul went through the very same process in which YOU obvserved every single possible outcome for this lifetime, and (and here's the really cool thing about this) because your soul was comfortable with each and every possible outcome, you can rest easy that there are no wrong choices. whatever you choose to do is the correct choice. so then, why do we have the possibilities if there are no wrong choices? because part of your purpose is to expand/learn/grow...and you do this through feeling into your choices. So, using the power of creative imagination it's time to get to feeling, already!
1) Breath and connect to your heart center--the source of your life's eternal truth.
2) As you make that connection, do so with the intention of simply observing your current situation. Call up the details--just the facts--and reserve any judgement for later.
3) As you think about the situation at hand, begin to visualize the possible outcomes. Notice how you are feeling as you ponder each choice. What are your emotions like. What physical sensations are you noticing? Does this choice make you feel good or out of sorts? Observe how energized (or not) you feel in the moment of making the choice and then, how you feel the next day...in two years from now...ten years and so on? Once you've felt the truth of that choice, move on to the next path and feel out that possibility--notice again how you feel as you step out in this direction, what emotions come up today? Tomorrow? Next year? How does it make your body feel? Your mind?
4) As you navigate through this path of your eternal truth, you will notice that one pathway feels more in alignment than all the others. If you are not noticing this, it simply means you have not felt fully into the wide and expansive wholehearted truth of your being. Breathe here and return your awareness to the situation at hand and ask yourself, "what else is possible?"
5) Once you FEEL your Truth, follow that energy. You have made your choice, and now the best thing you can do is to *go with that flow* and let your actions line up with that energy to watch your heartfelt-intentions manifest before your very eyes!
Detox diets are very trendy, and I have long been an advocate for clean eating, as opposed to the more typical *binge and purge* lifestyle of loading up on toxic, processed foods and then spending the weekend at the spa. The truth is that we are exposed to toxins on a daily basis—in the food we eat, the air we breathe, the water we drink…and even though we may try our hardest to avoid them we are even exposed to toxins like EMFs and other chemicals in our very own homes. So, this recipe is super nutritious, delicious and lends gentle detox support for your body, and you can enjoy it every day if you wish!
By the way, I absolutely love, love, love how I feel when I drink this blend--full of energy, peppy, happy and vibrant! Seriously high vibe living!!!
Of course all ingredients should be organic and clean. Cilantro is a known detoxifier, stimulating the body’s release of mercury, lead and other heavy metal toxins. The thing about cilantro is that most people either absolutely love it
or positively hate it
. This is because different people process its scent differently—it all has to do with brain wiring and evolution
. Regardless, the effects cilantro has on the body are nothing short of miraculous! Plus, the great thing about this recipe is that the taste is blended with the other ingredients, so it is not too overpowering, (but I happen to love cilantro, though.) The rest of the ingredients in this smoothie recipe are known gentle detox foods, too, so overall, it makes for a super duper start to your day! RECIPE:
Blend the following ingredients in your magic bullet or blender.
2 ice cubes1 bunch cilantro, stems and leaves4 ripe Strawberries ½ an Avocado (for healthy fat and gives it a creamy smooth consistency.)1/3 c Hemp milk for protein2 tsp. ground flax seed ¼ c Greek yogurtENJOY! I hope you love it as much as I do!

If you are having difficulty staying focused on the "here and now", you have energy leaks. If you are constantly experiencing lower level vibrational frequencies, you have energy leaks. If you feel "stuck" without a vision, you have energy leaks.
Energy leaks cut off your natural flow and if not kept in check, the feelings of "dis-ease" associated with energy leaks will manifest in disease!
Bringing them into your field of awareness will help you to begin repairing them.

Thank You For Your Concern
Overnight, my inbox was flooded with emails from concerned clients, friends and family and my phone has been blowing up with text messages all asking the same question, "Are you ok?"
I adore each and every one of you! And I appreciate so much that so many of you have been checking in with me! I LOVE LOVE LOVE that modern technology allows for us to get a daily dose of our interconnectedness on a more "physical" level, if you will. And to answer your questions, I am 100% A-OKAY!
Because I have been a prolific user of Facebook since 2008, intending to step into the world of "relationship marketing" (lol), I can understand the concern when I suddenly and without warning deactivated my Facebook account. I have a few reasons for doing so.
First, I want to say that I really enjoy being connected to so many people from all over the globe--I'm an Aquarius, after all! I have been energized by your stories--the good ones, the bad ones and the disaffected ones. I love getting a daily dose of humor-- George Takei is hilarious! And nowhere have I ever been inundated with so many awesome motivational quotes in my entire life (and that's saying a lot because I am an affirmation junkie!) Humans, by nature, are social creatures, and connecting with other people makes us happy.
So, you may be asking why I am deactivating my Facebook account? Why would I leave social networking behind, if it has the potential to connect and inspire happiness? For as much as I really enjoy using Facebook, I do have a few concerns lately.
As Above, So Below
As an Energist, I believe we are all interconnected on both micro and macro levels. If you look at me, my physicality, you simply see my body. But if you drill down far enough and get to the cellular and sub-cellular level, you will find that every atom within my being is vibrating at a certain frequency. This is what makes up my own "energy field" and the frequency at which I am vibrating can be expressed in a number of ways, but most often through emotion.
And this is true of everything within the Universe. Everything vibrates at its own frequency, and when two "bodies" come into contact with other frequencies, subtle shifts begin to occur within each body's energy field. This is known as "entrainment" but more on that in a later post...
Facebook is a great example of how to describe this energetic web that threads us all together. To me, Facebook (and, indeed, the Internet itself) is a "physical manifestation" of this matrix, allowing us to see more clearly on a surface level how our each interaction impacts our very existence--and vice versa.
I am a staunch believer in GIGO-- "garbage in, garbage out." I have set my own newsfeed to give me information that is uplifting and encouraging. I refuse to accept posts from organizations that spew messages based in fear and I will hide and/or delete anyone who lives in a state of low-level vibrations/uses Facebook as a platform to complain. Reading the replies under status posts is a good exercise in how two opposing frequencies can impact an entire group of people, for instance--and I rarely get involved with Facebook fights.
So, What's the Problem?
The problem is that despite all of my efforts at filtration, I have begun to notice subtle differences in my own energy field whenever I log on to Facebook.
Sure, I signed up because it was the latest fad in marketing and networking, but once I saw how it rewarded me with (what I am beginning to believe is "the illusion") of connectedness, I stuck around and accepted friend requests from a lifetime of colleagues, friends, family and associates.
And while inviting this circle into my life can feel good at times, I can't help but to wonder why my ego needs to "have followers" and collect "likes" on my status posts. Am I using Facebook because I want to feel that (very real) connection to others? And what of my off-line connections? I look around at my family and friends sitting right in front of me and notice that we are all staring into our own individual electronic devices seeking some kind of...connection...?
It makes me wonder if this surface level matrix we know as Facebook is changing the ways in which we connect to each other on this physical plane. Sure, feeling connected is important, but at the expense of real face-to-face connection? I wonder...is Facebook really harming our energetic connections on the molecular level?
Ok, and what is this "Positive Resonance" all about?
Barbara Fredrickson, a leading researcher of positive psychology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, argues that "love" is NOT that feeling of "a long-lasting, continually present emotion that sustains a marriage; it is not the yearning and passion that characterizes young love; and it is not the blood-tie of kinship."
Instead, she states that "love" is not so much "love" as it is a "feeling of connectedness." It is something that is felt between lovers and/or family members and/or--even between complete strangers. It is the result of a micro-moment of "positive resonance"--i.e. a flood of positive emotions shared with another person. But, because love has a biochemical and physiological component (specifically, there are three players in the biological love system—mirror neurons, oxytocin, and vagal tone), to really feel this positive resonance two people sharing this micro-moment must be connected physically. Face-to-face. Not on Facebook.
When it was pointed out to me (half-jokingly--er, i hope) by a well-intentioned family member that she had to hide me in her news feed because I clog it up, I began to ponder the implications of my actions. If my family members are hiding my status posts, am I really connecting to them? And if my family members are doing this, are other people within my social network doing the same? I have to ask myself...am I defeating my own intent? And, just what is my purpose in all of this?
"How Do You Do?"
This is an awakening of sorts and I feel it is important for me to return to CENTER and seek answers from within. On the surface, I don't know what to make of all this and perhaps I am just over-thinking the entire issue, but to be sure, I must examine it a little more deeply. So, I have decided to go off the grid and deactivate my Facebook account. I may choose at a later time to return, but for now, I am content to explore more deeply the issues of "connectedness" that have surfaced. In the meantime, I'm taking Louis' lead...I will be out making some eye contact, shakin' some hands and askin' others, "How Do You Do?" I invite you to join me!
How about you? Are you feeling it, too? Share your experiences in the comments below. Maybe together we can let this bubble to the surface together! If you desie to contact me, feel free to drop me a line via email firstname.lastname@example.org or, again, leave your comments below!
***And by the way, I find it a tad ironic that at the bottom of this blog post there are *like* and *tweet* buttons. Use them if you wish and help spread the word on why I've gone off the grid!
I LOVE my job! I enjoy the freedoms of owning my own holistic life coaching practice; in balancing my needs between family and business; the flexibility of managing my own schedule; and I am blessed every day with the opportunities to dream and create! Every day, I get to dream and scheme, laugh and share, heal and help others! I just love, love, love working with people, my clients—YOU---who have varied and interesting stories to share!
And sometimes I feel like a child with an exciting secret—I get so giddy! One of the greatest things about my job is that YOU teach me something new every single day! Sometimes I feel like I’M the one who really benefits from our sessions! I wonder if my clients really know how happy they make me, how much THEY teach ME, how much sheer delight I get from our sessions, sharing and healing and opening to each other!
Which is why I am kind of scared and kind of nervous to share the following news…
See, here’s the deal…over the past nine months, I have experienced a few major life events—my father was diagnosed and lost his battle with cancer; my daughter moved out of my house and in with her father; and I turned 40! To help me cope with these transitions, I have been seeing a therapist who has charged me with the task of completing a “life timeline.” It is not an easy exercise to do, as it has brought up all sorts of painful memories---and loads of revelations!
These revelations are causing major energetic shifts for me! I always coach my clients to be gentle on themselves when they undergo such shifts, and I have to treat myself with my own advice. With the amount of shifts I am going through, I need time to fully integrate the changes and space to release all that I no longer wish to carry.
I am not sharing this for sympathy, or any kind of reaction, actually. I am sharing only because it helps to put into context the kinds of things I am meditating on lately…I believe that every experience I have had has prepared me for this crucial moment. I believe I chose to incarnate on this plane, I chose which path my life would take and the experiences I would have. I hold a vision that my experiences are not only for me to learn by, but for others too. I chose to incarnate an Aquarian, the water bearer---sharing information with all of humanity.
Lately I’m being called to focus my energies on writing my book. I actually have three of them started (THREE!) and I feel compelled at this time to finish them. And so, the best thing about my job is that I get to choose how to spend my time and energies. I have given this considerable thought, but realize that life really is too short. My ideas, my story, won't help anyone if they remain in my head! I must be the Water-bearer, and pour out these stories as if they were water for the thirsty! The mantra of late is loud and clear, "WRITE THE BOOK!"
I do intend to honor my commitments of producing Tele Classes—I have quite a few already planned throughout the year—and I will continue working on my side project, Magickal Harvest, but come March 1, 2013, I will not be accepting client appointments until further notice.
You wanna' know what else I really LOVE? I LOVE that I am the master of my own destiny! I am elated that I don’t have to do the “daily grind” of the 9-5 office life, under artificial lights, subject to quarterly reviews. I love that I can wake up one day, listen to my heart and know that I have the support of people who get it!
Because I know that while right now seems scary for me to step into, in the end, it will be so worth it!
