Creativity whispers. It asks you to look at disparate threads and weave a pattern from them, a pattern that you alone first see. If you are listening to fears, looking backward, or tuning into everyone else (likely their fears) then you can’t weave.
You lose the pattern. Because it’s brand new.
In meditation, I see a young me and remember my own timidity, my sense of ill fit. Like a broken petal on a daisy, what I see is the weakest part, not the beauty or sweetness that was me then. I’m harder on me than anyone else was or is.
And same today when trying something new. I see my fears, or what I don’t know how to do, and the energy of that is like the animated dark trees in a scary Disney forest. “Protection” is overdeveloped, a huge wave in the surf.
Creating space for inspiration is a muscle practice. Going to the next level is never appealing BEFORE, because it’s work, fear, unknown, risk, vulnerable.
You’ll blow it, have spinach on your teeth, your voice will crack, no one will like it, you won’t have enough slides, you’ll hurt the patient, you’ll be a bad parent. We all want uncertainty, but mostly in tastes, not in a full meal.
Staying safe is stasis. If the tide did not come in and out, what a Dead Sea.
Transformation requires both courage, and surrender. Like a dive from a dock…pushing off is the courage. The water is surrender.

Download the free app, then send me your email or friend me on the App to join our group. Mental Floss. It's the new black.
Did you guys see the picture I posted on Facebook today of 78-year-old Jack dropping back in my yoga class yesterday? We create our own limitations, and then we buy into them.
I used to do this ALL.THE.TIME. I've learned to Release that habit by overpowering it with good mental, physical and emotional discipline.
It's not about sitting on your cushion or hoping things will get better if you read another self help book, complain to the right friend or bust it out in yoga. It's about FIERCELY pursuing absolute joy until you cannot feel any happier. When you find that happiness, everything in life flows. Health, relationships, abundance.
I am fiercely going after it and the results are palpable. Bigger, happier energy, percolating relationships, beauty all around me, nourishing projects. It does not happen in a vacuum, it takes focus, flow, and practice to build a life you love. If you want this too, maybe my Joy Posse is calling you. I have 3 sacred spots open.
Three months of coaching, homework, humor, magic, belly healing, practical guidance, genius insight, intuitive goodness and rich love energy directed entirely at YOU. Fierce happiness. I'm creating what I want in this world, and right now it's brave warrior super joy. Because it fuels healing, consistency and abundance in ALL areas of my life.
It's tough to get there alone, it can feel like you are trying to right the Titanic after it hits the iceberg.
I know. I did it. Get the help you need and most importantly, deserve. The world wants your happiness, because when you uncover it, you bring your best gifts.
Message me to set up a clarity call or for program details. This is happening.
Summer is here--transform your everything this summer with my happy guidance.
