Garden Update: Bursting Forth and Bittersweet

I’ve been so busy with sessions and house hunting, which makes this season’s Dance of Spring a little bittersweet. The literally thousands of bulbs I’ve planted as recently as last Autumn have begun their smiling jigs and Sufi swirls. I still contend that this circle of miniature daffodils I planted around our North Star Cherry tree, visible from the stairwell’s window, was one of the very best gifts I’ve ever given myself:

The Harm of Overheated Talk

In recent walks around town and in sessions, I’ve had similar conversations, as people share how difficult they find it to remain balanced and joyful as the overheated world burns through them. Jamie links to some good refresher tips, and I would add that anytime chaos begins to erupt, you’ll have far more influence than usual if you can identify, summon, pursue and amplify those things you DO want.

You don’t need to know the entire picture. As Gurumukh said, “We must start somewhere because if we don’t start somewhere, we’ll be nowhere. Start wherever you are.” Don’t be afraid to make mistakes while living a more authentic life. In times of chaos, “mistakes” create springboards for those present and centered enough to recognize opportunities swirling around them. Observe and then poise yourself to spring into action when something whispers clearly to your heart and soul.

“I’ve been on a soapbox for months now about the harm that our overheated talk is doing to us. Yes it mobilizes supporters—but by mobilizing them with hysterical accusations and pseudo-information, overheated talk has made it impossible for representatives to represent and elected leaders to lead.”

Mr. Frum was writing in 2010, though the insight about “the harm of overheated talk” is always timely.

He also noted the very personal, ego-centric agendas of those stirring up the frenzy by way of purposely inflammatory ‘talk’, and that this created an environment that “trapped” those leaders who otherwise preferred collaboration and compromise yet were pulled along in the toxic current that…

March 2017 Specials

One week left! The Energy Protection for Empaths sessions have been powerful, but for anyone else wondering, April will feature totally different specials than March.

I’m also in process of restructuring session types and rates, as David and I have lots of shifts occurring in our lives, too. With everything else up for reevaluation, aspects of my business are, as well. Just giving everyone a heads up that I will soon be shifting some policies, session types, lengths, rates and availability, so if these specials speak to you, now would be a good time to take action. The odds of me repeating these particular specials in this particular form are slim.

MARCH 2017 SPECIALS

So many people keep contacting me about Empath concerns and Empath health related issues that I’ve decided to extend the February Energy Protection for Empaths Special through March. My morning meditation also surprised me with a brand new, never before offered Special to help some people take a major step into the next phase of life and leadership. Details below. As always, I intuit which specials to offer based on my read of the current month’s energies and what I can offer as strongest support for the month’s potential shifts. I wish you each peace, discernment and joy as we continue to move through 2017’s powerful energies.

Energy Protection for Empaths

This new half-hour offering shares tips and techniques specifically tailored to your own energy field and the challenges you face as a “Sensitive” or “Empath” — someone who deeply feels the emotions and energies of others…

Springing Into Fuller Embodiment ~ Spring Equinox Portal of Possibilities

A beautiful Equinox musing from my sweet Faery twin Tania! David and I spent a super-charged and synchronous day yesterday aligning things more in the 3D world to what we’ve been dreaming and nurturing into being from beyond. One reason we love honoring the Wheel of the Year is because doing so enables these sorts of reflections and awareness of the spiral journey. The Wheel Turns, but we are never the same each cycle. Taking moments to tune into larger cycles and patterns helps bring forth a more authentic present by encouraging shifts that harmonize with our own soul’s song. Love and blessings to Tania and to everyone.

Tania Marie's Blog

Peace and harmony to you on this beautiful Spring Equinox portal. Where ever you are I hope you can take some time to tune in and anchor in your own “change of seasons” with some reflection on where you are on your journey, envisioning what you would like to be creating as your path continues to unfold, and honing in on what actions you can take to put it all into renewing motion. I was just thinking about the last few years and where I was on Spring Equinox…last year in the Grand Canyon on our Magick Bus adventure, the year before on the island of Amantani in Lake Titicaca for our sacred journey to Peru I organized, and the year before hosting the Reiki Renewal Retreat in Laguna Beach, CA. And now, sitting above Lake Tahoe in our treehouse in Nevada engaging in what I feel to be my…

How to Thrive in a Less Than Ideal Location

So many clients have specifically mentioned this article during recent sessions, and so many others have requested I send it to them, that this post obviously wants to go up again. It seems timely, too, as David and I gain momentum mid-process of a big shift ourselves, TBA once the rest of the pieces fall into place. 😉

Laura Bruno's Blog

Today’s topic arises so many times in coaching sessions that I thought I’d address it here, since it seems more common than not for people to feel misplaced, isolated or otherwise “stuck” in a location other than their heart’s desire. Having lived in 43 homes throughout my life — including many of the most beautiful, stunning spots in the US — and currently living well in a way less than ideal area, I can share both personal and professional tips for creating your best life wherever you are. This is not a “settle for less” post, but rather a list of ways to ensure you receive the most benefit, growth and satisfaction from any given location until you either realize you do love where you live, or you manage to leverage yourself into something much more compatible and preferred.

Peter Gundry ~ 1 Hour of Celtic Music

A quarter Irish (and mostly Fae), I wanted to share this magical Celtic music from composer Peter Gundry. My connection to Ireland goes back much further than St. Patrick’s Day — to the ancient myths and lore, Wheel of the Year and more. Next Monday marks Spring Equinox, and David and I will be busy with our own unusual way of celebrating another Turn of the Wheel. However you honor this day and the coming seasonal shift, I wish you a pot of peace and a rainbow of blessings.

Edible Flowers

I just got a newsletter update from the Phoenix-based Agriscaping with Justin Rohner. We have snow on the ground here in Indiana, and I know much of the East Coast is undergoing “Snowmageddon.” Who doesn’t like flowers, though? If you live in a warmer climate zone, you can grow these now. If you’re shivering inside, you can start planning for spring or just enjoy the virtual blooms:
