This newsletter was written a few years ago and I pulled it out this week for a caller who dialed into my radio show to talk about her frustration with a job search process. She was doing all the right things and yet nothing was happening. Once I confirmed that her search approach was on track, I explained the importance of understanding a "dry spell." I hope this message speaks to you as well...
Last week I shared an exercise you can use when you get your buttons pushed (or to re-center yourself when you feel off track). You can find it here. This week I want to focus on the last part of the exercise - the final sentence stem to be completed: The best actions for me to take to get back in alignment with my Highest Self are...
Last week I had a conversation with a good friend who shared a smart (and effective) exercise she uses to re-center herself when she gets her buttons pushed. As I listened to her describe the process, I knew I had to share it with you. The next time you get your buttons pushed and you find yourself fixated on a negative experience, in the middle of a shame attack, or ruminating about something that's upset you, try this.
As we enter spring here in the Northeast, it seems like a great time for a "Clean Up Week" to motivate you to purge, clean, or organize your space so you can welcome in new beginnings. So this week, here are four ways to do just that...
Each time I see a public person knocked off the proverbial pedestal either by his or her own undoing or by someone else, I see the writing on the collective subconscious wall: "You better not get too big for your britches or we'll take you down." While it seems some need to come down in order to stop hurting people, others become the poster child for our collective fear of success.
In last week's newsletter, I shared the video of a young man who mastered the art of riding a bicycle just about anywhere - over the tops of fences or on bridge railings. It was an amazing example of mastery and it reminded me of a prior newsletter I'd written about squirrels and the genius of persistence. If you need a little motivation to stay true to a dream or goal, or to master something new, you might want to take a page from squirrels.
It's a beautiful, spring-like day here in the Northeast and it feels good to be home enjoying the sun and warmth. Michael and I returned from Paris last week after a business trip that gave us the opportunity to visit places like the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, and the Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Jesus Church. The beauty and grandeur of Paris is beyond words.
I returned home from vacation on Thursday morning of last week and that evening we had a rainstorm with hurricane force winds that left our town a mess. We've been without power, phones, heat, and water for three days (a minor problem when you consider what the people of Chile are going through).
This week, while I'm on vacation, I thought I'd rerun a newsletter about getting unstuck. If you're feeling immobilized in an area of your life - relationships, career, finances, a creative project, or while trying to accomplish an important goal, this info should help.
So imagine this: I'm sitting next to my friend Nancy. We're both wearing pink boas around our necks. We're in a room with 300 fellow Sister Goddesses (Mama Gena's name for the women who come to her programs) who are also wearing pink boas, and I'm feeling a little nervous (ok, maybe more than a little nervous ☺).
