Deep Unfiltered Connection

Deep Unfiltered Connection

  I have not been this excited about a post for a long time! Two and a half years ago, I met a beautiful human traveling a similar path. I have yet to meet him in person. The religions we were shaking off were different and similar at the same time, both based in a >> keep reading

Welcome to my Sweet Shattering

Multi-colored stars ... shattered

I learned something this week. Simple in its essence, and profound in its effect. Do do the opposite of what you would normally do when you are wanting to make a change and everything in you is resisting, when the part of your brain that is designed to protect you from change is doing its >> keep reading

Love Notes To My Small Self

I have come to love my love notes to myself. Opening my journal this afternoon again, getting ready to write and landing on the page that said this: “Could you let the experience that you have of Me be unique to you, new, fresh everyday, every moment?” Remembering the moment that thought landed into my >> keep reading

Deepening and Consistent Pleasure

I am learning to hold a deepening and more consistent pleasure. More importantly, I am understanding that it is always a choice. I am always at choice. There is a sense of chaos in coming to that place,  perhaps complicated  by the fact that pleasure has been neurologically wired to fear in my brain and >> keep reading

Fierce Care of Your Digital Space

I have not known how to navigate the madness that hits me every time I log into Facebook since 1/20/17 without shutting it out completely. Until now. For some shutting it off entirely is a viable option. For me, not so much. I help run two groups and I am a part of a group >> keep reading

Reinventing “Old School”

Reinventing "Old School"

  Someone told me recently that I am old school. Me. Old school. Mind blown. It is not a term I’ve ever applied to myself. It was followed by  “That’s what’s cool about you …” What? It felt like a blow off … and in that moment, it probably was. My friend was not interested >> keep reading

Surrender Into Deep Freeze (aka Stillness)

Snow Falling

I spent some time  Saturday morning journaling about the positive aspects of icy roads, feeling stuck at home and solitude bordering at times on isolation. If everything is always working out for me (and it is) the roads should be clear so I can drive on them, dammit! Isolation isn’t good for me! Everyone knows >> keep reading

What If?

What if , moment by moment in 2017, I abandoned all sense of limit and allowed myself to experience full-on Bliss in whatever way it makes itself known to me as defined by me and the moment? What if? What could open up? What does that level of freedom feel like? And can I have >> keep reading

Joy Beneath the Chaos?

Joyfilled Holidays to you

Joy filled holidays from my heart to yours. I would love to be sitting across from you at Starbucks or Imagine Coffee (an artist’s haven in my area) or at Emily’s Beanery (the name my beautiful friend Bethlyn and I lovingly give to the Beanery near Market of Choice in Corvallis) having deep conversation. I >> keep reading

Fearless Balance with a Twist of Bounce

Taking Stock of the Year

As  part of the Web Designer Strategy Academy beta group, I am taking stock of everything in my life this month and looking at how it has evolved and changed. I’ve always been reluctant to do this, believing that it would be depressing to see what did not happen for me. Instead, while there are >> keep reading
