What’s Your Growing Edge?

What’s Your Growing Edge?

“This is part of your growing edge”, she said. The words casually passed from a beloved friend to me for comfort and encouragement as I was navigating a new, life-stretching situation. The words began looping in mind like a song lyric on repeat. More and more, I found myself taking in the words with an affirming yes. “This is part of my growing edge.” I haven’t stopped reflecting on that statement since that day. And even better, I can see it everywhere bubbling to the surface.

This growing edge doesn’t belong only to “them”, “him” and “her”. It belongs to all of us in some capacity in our own way. Now more than ever, each of us, are being invited to look deeper into the thresholds we need to cross individually and collectively. The powerful gift the growing edge offers is a shift of

Before After The Magical Messy Middle

Before After The Magical Messy Middle

A picture is worth a 1000 words. It’s true. The classic storyline of the “before and after”. The brain processes imagery at an exceptional speed. Advertisers, marketers, and people selling results know the power punch a single image can produce. The overweight body to toned and thin. Single and alone to an embracing love. Money pains to money gains. A cluttered mess to a feng shui success. A small unspoken spirit to a dazzling out-spoken soul. The list goes on and on. Pictures, phrases and desires plastered everywhere in images attempting to motivate, sell or inspire.

We look at the “after” photos and think. Wow, aren’t they amazing? And yes, the transformational results are. However, the real power started in the “before” picture. The brave soul who stepped forward. Made a new choice. Took the first step. Broke the silence. Began the program. Declined the drink. Went to the gym. Had the hard conversation. Made amends. Formed a commitment. Said yes. Said no. Made a decision to set a new trajectory of self-transformation.

Audacity to be Authentic

Audacity to be Authentic

“Have the audacity to be authentic.” This statement feels bold, something brave people say.  Or it’s an option we use when the time is right. It can be a permission pass we give ourselves to show up more fully, but only if conditions are right enough to take action. Make the decision. Speak up. Raise our hands, and say, “Yes, count me in!’ or “No, count me out”. Being authentic can also sound like a really nice extra-curricular activity we do when the picture-perfect life has arrived.

Reflections on Moon Beams & Heart Smiles

I want to share what you have meant to me. I want to thank you. I want to thank everyone of you. Truly from my heart to yours! Thank you. I spent the past several days working long hours putting together the reminders, the emails and so much of the behind the scene elements for the upcoming full moon content and teleseminars. A lot of outpouring I had been doing for several days, non-stop. It was around midnight, Saturday night and the super moon was shining so bright and magnificent through the glass sliding doors in my office. I sat on the floor silently soaking in radiant moon light. It was only a simple act of  looking up at the moon and a simple smile that stirred something deep in me.  My smile felt different. My smile felt deeply soulful, sweet and sincere. In that moment something came full circle for me. Since I have started sharing the spiritual practice of the Moon Rituals, all of you you have immediately embraced me. Thanked me. Encouraged me. Inspired me. Shared your stories with me in ways I know and ways only my heart does. I get blown away by the beauty of all of you. The worldwide embrace of 50+ countries. The honest humility of each of you, your dreams and intentions. It all came full circle to me as… I recalled something I wrote eight years ago.  Here is the verbatim excerpt from 2006: While I lived in a beautiful home, with the most incredible property, that to the outside world appeared to be a picture perfect life, there had...
