Messages & Channelings

Today has been a much-needed lazy day. My calendar was clear. I was commitment-free. And I decided to simply be spontaneous – only do what I felt like doing in the moment.

This morning I visited our farmer’s market to get some fresh vegetables and to see what kinds of treasures the local artists were offering. I love this summer ritual and look forward to seeing familiar faces, hearing music from neighborhood bands, or learning about the new businesses that have joined our community. As I sat on a bench with my friend Nancy, eating a slice of strawberry rhubarb pie, I overheard a conversation between a mom, her daughter, and the mother’s mom.

I’ve just finished the “I Can Do It” conference here in Toronto and, before I go to bed, I wanted to share some of my notes with you from an extraordinary documentary that was shown at lunch today. The movie was called, Doors Opening, and it’s the story of the work Louise Hay did with men who were suffering with AIDS in the mid eighties. During a time when most people literally shunned these men, Louise welcomed them into her home and her heart, and taught them how to heal. The film is a moving example of the power of love – both self love and the selfless love of a woman committed to being of service. Here are several things Louise suggests we do in order to love ourselves more:

"Every thought you think and every word you say is an affirmation for your future." - Now think about. Really think about it. If each of us spent one entire day noticing our thoughts and words, chances are we'd be a little concerned about the future we're creating. For most people, negative thinking and talking is a way of life. But not anymore, thanks to Louise Hay.

I've just arrived home from Omega where I taught a Mother's Day weekend retreat about developing the qualities and habits of an extraordinary mother. We had a terrific group of women and this week I'd like to share ten pieces of wisdom from our time together. Here we go...

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...

Cheryl Richardson > Buttons Pushed

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.
