INTERMISSION™: The Beauty & Magic of a Single Flower

INTERMISSION™: The Beauty & Magic of a Single Flower

 I posted a picture this morning of a single flower.
A flower that sits on a table in my home.
It was a gift from someone special so it holds even more meaning.

This single flower holds the magic and majesty of nature.🏵️ If you think about it, what did it take for that flower to grow?
Who planted the seed?
Who fed and watered it?
How many hours of sunlight were required for it to sprout, to grow, to bloom? 🌱
How many hands touched it before it made its way to me?

It's pretty profound to think of all the flowers that grow and do their thing without worry or anxiety or fear they're doing something wrong.

They know to grow and bloom.

We have the same ability. To surrender into who we're meant to be.
As Eckhart Tolle says in his book The Power of Now, "to relinquish inner resistance to what is."
And in The New Earth, to "appreciate something simple - a sight, a sound, a touch - when you see beauty, when you feel loving kindness toward another, sense the inner spaciousness that is the source and the background to that experience." then being is bliss.

Doesn't that feel easier?
Isn't that simpler?
We make it harder than it needs to be.

Look at a flower and take in its beauty, complexity and magic while feeling how easy it is to be exactly what you're meant to be when you surrender to what it, to who you are and allow life to unfold as it's meant to be.
(if even for a few minutes a day 😊)! Let me know what you think about the nature of flowers... We learn from one another. Xo

INTERMISSION™: Stoic Sunday Mother's Day Message :)

INTERMISSION™: Stoic Sunday Mother's Day Message :)

💗 Happy Mama's Day to all the mommas out there!
We wouldn't be here without ya!

For the first time ever I am not with my kiddos on this day. Feels so strange and a little sad.
BUT I also feel so incredibly blessed to be a mom to them and to be (virtually) surrounded by friends, family and clients whom I adore and who adore me! 💕

I don't usually get Mother's Day messages from many outside of my kids and maybe besties on this day but somehow my people know and have shown up for me today.

I am one lucky 🍀 grateful 🙏gal!

And in keeping with the Stoic Sunday theme, here are a few Stoic thoughts 💭 with mothers in mind:
🔸Get comfortable with discomfort.
This begins early on in pregnancy, labor/delivery, early childhood and keeps right on going into THEIR adulthood!
🔸Accept what you can't control.
At some point along the way you can't control who they hang out with, what interests they have or where they want to live so you might as well accept it and support them on whatever path they choose.
🔸Persevere with courage and without complaint.
Again, early on in their lives we're put in a position to do just that. The no complaint part may not be as readily seen (at least in my case 😂) but as moms we persevere and courageously do what needs to be done.

Whether you're a mom, dad or neither, these also apply to you but for different reasons obviously.

Where in your life have you had to persevere with courage or accept what you can't control?

INTERMISSION™: Fear, Worry & Shame...Oh, my!

INTERMISSION™: Fear, Worry & Shame...Oh, my!

Going a little on the heavy side to start the week, talking about #blame yesterday and now focusing on #fear#worry and #shame.

Yikes.

I know. I know.
Bear with me on this... A quite powerful book that looks at emotions and how to release those that aren't serving you and are potentially creating issues in your body is The Emotion Code by Dr. Bradley Nelson.

I was intuitively guided to fear, worry and shame as the top three emotions that are affecting us as a global community right now.
But here's the thing...these emotions can be real or imagined.

What I mean by that is, yes, you may be worried about a loved one getting sick.
If he/she is destined to become ill, he/she will.

Does your worry help that person? Does it help you? Does it change the outcome?

No to all three questions.

So is your worry real or not real?
Well, the worry is real but the subject of worry is not.

Can you make a different choice?
Can you look at why you're worrying?
Is it more about control than worry?
What's it about?

You might be surprised what answers you receive and how much better you'll feel once you shift out of these low vibrational emotional states.

And don't "worry" 🤣, we're going to be moving up the emotional ladder to some higher vibes tomorrow! 😁

Remember, we all learn from one another. Let me know which of the emotions mentioned is showing up most for you right now and how you're
