Isn't it exciting to fathom that we actually get to lead the changes happening in our world?
One thing that may escape the attention of some people is that archaic systems in this world have been falling apart for a long time now.
I've often asked the question: Why are children at school 30+ hours per week? Why do we work 40-70 hours per week? Why are there so many retail buildings full of things we don't need? Why can't more people work from home? Why can't people have more freedom in their work? Why aren't our lives more family and faith-centered as a whole....why isn't this the norm? Why are we on our phones and social media so many hours in the day? Why do people continue to work in jobs they hate?
I feel in some ways we have manifested this global reset button. Many of us have been fed up with how backwards our world is and how misaligned we have felt in our lives.
I believe overall, as we slowly recreate the...
This isolation period has been tough for a lot of people. For the most part I have stayed above it. However, a bit of sadness kicked yesterday as I thought about what is happening in the world right now and that I cannot simply celebrate my birthday in person.
Then it lifted as I realized I truly have so much to be thankful for! My friends and family are healthy and we can come together again soon enough. While we may be deprived of non-essentials right now, truly we have it all if we can find laughter and have people who love us.
We have had to get creative on ways to keep our girls busy and equally have fun together as a family! As you know, creativity is a foundational principle of Unleash Your Rising.
Check out our dance challenge video we created.
Feel free to shared it with your family and friends to spread love and laughter during this time.
We are hosting a fun challenge too. Share a story post on...
Do you actually have less time to devote to your vision?
Your vision wants you to know:
Don't give up on me. I'm not giving up on you!
I thought that during this time, since all my speaking engagements and events postponed for now, that I’d be showing up live more, blogging more, and accomplishing so much…including finding Zumba videos and working out more… Ha!
Instead, I’ve been pouring into our Author community and emergency homeschooling! My workouts look more like a walk around the block and family dance parties. I'm also steadily building out a Writing Challenge (stay tuned).
While this is a challenging time for our world, innovation and stronger connection is arising. We've had to get more introspective and creative. An awakening is occurring.
This is the time to consider that steady is not giving up. You will get there! You are whole and complete right here right now. Allow yourself to be introspective....
These libraries full of books are my paradise! (And Belle is my favorite Disney Character because she stands in her power and loves books). Imagine all the powerful stories within these books.
My love for books began at a young age yet I grew up in an environment where reading was strictly monitored.
I remember sneaking books into the house and hiding in the bathroom with the door locked to read them. I even hid books in a buried box on the property where we lived. I would wander alone on our property up into the biggest tree I could climb to read a book for hours then climb down and put the book safely back into the box until the next time I could escape to read it. Books became for me an escape from my own personal story.
As I grew older, I continued to grow in my love for books. As an English major, I spent hours reading and writing papers, and still spent every Saturday at Barnes and Noble to read other books I was interested in, typically self-help,...
Unleashing your love story has everything to do with your own personal development and tapping into your creative power. If you are single, it becomes possible to attract a match who best compliments your higher self the more introspective work you do and the more you live in your creative genius. If you are in a relationship, the more you focus on your inner work and pursue your creative purpose, the better your relationship works. Why? Because you are honoring what makes you come alive, rather than relying on someone else to activate your aliveness.
In chapters 2, 3, and 4 of Unleash Your Rising, I discuss a powerful awareness tool called Your Story of Intention that can work as a guide in unleashing your love story. This tool is a chart that contains 3 levels of story:
1. First Story: Disempowerment
2. Second Story: Unleashing
3. Third Story: Reverence
If you are single and in the unleashing stage, overall, you no longer require validation...
Grief is a state that encompasses many different emotions depending on the stage. While some people experience grief from the loss of a loved one, others may experience it from divorce or loss of a job or financial status. No matter the story and details of what you are experiencing, the state is the same for everyone and it can be debilitating, especially during the holidays or other special occasions. We store grief in our bodies and without releasing the core root of the grief, it can cause depression and even health issues.
If you are experiencing grief right now, this is a signal that you are ready to let it go. It helps to tell the story of your grief. By switching from the "in it" part of your story to the storyteller, you are actually creating a space in your brain so that you can let go of the emotion. I encourage you to journal through your story and share your story to close friends and loved ones so that you are not going...
Are you having trouble getting into the holiday spirit? Some people experience grief during the holidays and it just hangs out in the background as they go through the motions and traditions of the season. Grief shows up in so many different ways. Are you suffering from the loss of a loved one or a relationship, the grief from past trauma, the sadness that you cannot give like you want, the yearning to have love, or are you suffering from anger / frustration as you reflect on the past year(s) and have the perception that life has not been working out for you? All of these scenarios manifest as grief and many people do not know that there are tools to help release the grief so the joy of the season and the true essence of themselves can shine through.
The closest I came to experiencing pure joy during Christmas was last year, yet there was still a grief there lingering and I could equally feel both. This year is the first holiday that I have felt pure joy with no clouds covering it...
The upcoming holidays mark a time of stress for a lot of people, offering the opportunity to grow, let go, and become more awakened. We are entering into a time where the spiritual enlightenment of the world is happening at an increased pace. All will experience an opportunity to wake up to their true essence of peace, love and joy. The people we encounter over the holiday season can serve as our best teachers in this lesson of life.
For some people the holidays mean dealing with the ghost stories of their past, encountering family members they may not normally see, becoming exposed again to past hurts that have been left unhealed, including grief from the loss of a loved one.
What this means RIGHT NOW for you is, it is time to let go of the past, allow these stories to come to the surface so they can be fully released.
As we deal with these stories it is important to
The universe is asking us to be true to...
I asked our 5-year-old daughter Grace to get rid of toys because she has too many, so she found some she was willing to part with and put them in a little shoe box. When she brought the box to me I asked her what she would like to do with the toys. She came up with the idea to give them to sick kids with cancer in the Hospital.
Since health is such a big part of our daily life Grace has grown a heart towards children who struggle with cancer and other serious illness. She believes that giving these children crafts and activities will bring them joy, "so they aren't bored while waiting around all day." We found out through the Child Life Specialist at the local hospital that they cannot accept anything used, so of course Grace suggested we buy them all NEW toys and activities! I asked her, "Well just how many boxes would you like to make?" I expected her to say 3-4 but instead Grace stated matter-of-factly,...
