Life Knows What It’s Doing

Life knows what it’s doing.   Do you believe that? Do you want to believe that, but can’t?   That was the case for me. I really, truly, even desperately, wanted to believe that. I wanted to be able to relax and trust that life would unfold naturally and beautifully.   But I couldn’t. Something kept stopping me.   And that thing that kept stopping me? My mind. It was so entangled in the ideas of what it meant to be safe and secure. My mind was scared shitless to go against the grain. It had gotten a little too comfortable in its role as dictator, which didn’t believe that it was possible to feel safe and secure without being in control.   But there was a persistent part of me that just couldn’t settle for how things were. Life seemed so much more complicated than it needed to be. Life felt hard doing it the way I was told do. Life felt flat following the rules that were set.   So I decided that I was going to start following that little nudge in my heart...

It’s Not Neglect to Ignore the Shittiness in the World

I sometimes can have what other’s would refer to as a naïve view of things…I tend to see the positive even when it appears obvious to be the opposite.   Recently my optimism got challenged…but thankfully it’s stubborn.  I was feeling bombarded and overwhelmed with all the crappy things that can go on in the world, and even some smaller disappointments were feeling big.   My heart got heavy, my body felt drained, and my head filled with fear.   So it didn’t come as a complete surprise when I found a window smashed in my vehicle outside of my gym. I had been creating momentum in that direction, and this was a bit of a wake-up call.   Instead of seeing this as confirmation that my fears were valid, I could feel that there was a deeper meaning to this incident.  After the initial shock, I knew that this was a message for me.  Not one agreeing with the fear that had been surfacing, but one reminding me that even when things look bleak I’m always okay.   I chat with my Soul Team...

Oh Hello Fear…Welcome

Well hello fear.  Today was an interesting day. Turns out I’m not always all that honest with myself.   I thought I was pretty transparent, but the ego can be very sly.  There were cleverly concealed parts of myself that I obviously preferred not to let others…or apparently myself…see.  I had convincingly created an unshakeablely courageous and trusting illusion that my mind had bought into as being me.   But my body was telling me a different story.   I had begun a practice of tuning into what was going on in my body at all times…or probably more accurately, as often as I remembered to…since as we’ve already established, I’m capable of lying to myself!   I am, however, quite consistent with this practice.  So I was aware that anxiety was quite often settling in my chest – when I was in certain conversations, when I would read something unsettling, when I would watch something disagreeable, when I would encounter author’s views that were in opposition to mine, when I was planning an unfamiliar activity, and even when I was booking a...

Your Soul Team wants to talk to you. Join me on Instagram for #DearSoulTeam Notes.

I talk to my Soul Team every day.   Yep, I’ve got a Soul Team…and so do you.   I’m not exactly sure who is all part of my Soul Team, but I do know they’ve always got my back.   Obviously I’m part of the team…I mean, it’s my team after all.  And then I’m thinkin’ that my team looks something like this…   A committee of kick-ass, high-powered Angels who are on the job 24/7. My Higher Self who has a bird’s eye-view of everything and keeps me on the best path….and gives me nudges when I’m wandering off. My aunt who I always felt was keeping me safe and out of trouble when I was younger. My mother-in-law who was fiercely protective and wasn’t afraid to speak her mind. Nothing and nobody is gonna mess with her.  Glad she’s on my team! My childhood dog, Logan. …If he’s not mad at me for having to put him down.  But in my defense, he kept eating our neighbor’s chickens! I’m also kinda hoping that Wayne Dyer is now on my team. (Wayne…this is your formal invite.) And...
