It has been a rough week for many of us, I want you to know I am holding you all in love and light. I was initially going to write a fiercely loving truth-teller piece. But I realized that will not serve me or you, and that piece actually needs to be longer and perhaps submitted to a more a public venue. So instead, I want to carry on the energy of the equinox and what I discovered during my harvesting and gratitude ritual. I have so much to be in gratitude for and my hopes are if I speak it out loud I can transmute the energy of the other bullshit going on all around us. And I can remind you that in these crazy times, to stop, quiet down and acknowledge those things no matter how big or small you are grateful for.
First, so grateful for my husband who has supported me through the light and the shadows, who has supported my dreams and my vision of holding space for all of you. Without him, it would never have become a reality. And of course, my son. The sweet, funny result of our sacred partnership. And of course the hounds that keep us all laughing and love us unconditionally.
My mom, well I don't have words for this as I sit with the happenings in the world and realize she has been fighting this fight for nearly 50 years and who taught me to speak up, stand up, and rise up. Be compassionate to all humans(and creatures), and to be of service.
To you, so much to you. I am so grateful for you, my friends, my students, clients, women who read my stuff (or don't), my sisters, my tribe who support me, and who give me the opportunity to share the wisdom I have been blessed enough to receive. Because I can't not share it.
My teachers, my Goddess I have been blessed with so many amazing teachers, and I continue to call in those who are here to listen to me, witness me, reflect for me, teach me, help me to harmonize and catalyze. Without them..first I don't know what kind of hot mess I would be, and second without them I would not be able to serve all of you. It is my greatest desire and gift to be a part of these lineages so I can share the wisdom I receive and practice with you.
I am DEEPLY grateful to my Social Media and Web Goddesses, the Universe brought me some amazingly gifted women to support me in this venture.
My Divinely given gifts, my mind that is always open, always curious, always learning more and has the ability to discern what resonates and what doesn't. And of course my spirit and my heart, always walking by my side, letting me know when my mind is becoming too cerebral and reminding me when to quiet down and let my intuition back in the driver's seat.
A huge thank you to the Goddess for providing me the physical and energetic space to create the safe container for women to share and self-express. For giving me the place to have the ability to listen, feel, and respond to what you need and desire. And that is also the intent for this writing, to find out what you need and desire. I would like to think my intuition always knows what you desire, what you are working through based on what I have or am working through, but the truth is, I would rather co-create that with you.
People sometimes laugh that I plan as far ahead as I do, but there are two forces at work...one is the Muse has tons of ideas..so I can plan far ahead as long as I am detached from the outcome, and the second is when you plan in the Wise Woman way you honor the rhythms and cycles of nature and yourself. What that means is I am looking at where my energy will go the rest of the year and into next, so that I can take the time I need to reflect and vision during late November and December; I need this time to step out of the madness matrix and it is so much more fluid, yet structured. My planning has nothing at all to do with my need to control or to know what I am doing....lol. But it does take time on my part and of my Social Media Goddess and Web Goddess to build and share what the Muse create so I honor their time as well and try to give them as much time as possible to work their magic.
So I am planning my first quarter 2019 teaching calendar and I would love your input. I will have some travel planned throughout Jan-Mar as well, which is another reason for my planning. I do already have big news for January and a class you won't want to miss so mark your calendars, the details will be coming soon.
I am pleased to announce that one of my teachers and founder of Creatively Fit Coaching Whitney Freya will be coming to Amused Woman Studios on January 19th and she will guide us through discovering and painting our 2019 Sacred Symbol which we will use as a guide to set our INTENT for the year. And it will be the catalyst event leading into a monthly circle where we create a sacred symbol and intent for each month.
I will also be opening the doors to my She Trusts 6 month programs that was postponed from this month to make some spaciousness for myself and some others that are interested. So more to come on that.
There are some other goodies being planned, but I would love to hear from you. What types of classes and processes would you like to see. What are you visioning for yourself where you could use guidance and an art process to bring your visions into form? What do you need to release in order to step into your power and your heart and soul desires? What struggles, old stories, Inner Mean Girls are you ready to transform and transmute? If you speak it, I can develop it, and hold the space for you.
Would you like to see more art, more sacred circles and teachings, all of the above? I am developing both larger Intentional Creativity classes and smaller art journaling, intuitive painting and mixed media days, and of course lots of fun and play.
I also would love to develop and curate experiences specifically for private groups and team building. Please ask about this if you have a group of sisters, friends, co-workers, beloveds that you think could use some time outside of the madness and to just come enjoy time together in sisterhood and work to transform and re-write a story.
So again, I thank you, I love you, I am grateful for you, and I am here for you in any way I know how to be. And I would love to hear your feedback.
