10+ ideas for kindness you can be in the world today

Posted on 14 February 2019

What kindness can you be in the world today?

Need some ideas?

√ Text a love note to a friend you haven’t spent time with recently.
√ Think of your exes with kindness. See them happy, healthy, and well.
√ Call a family member and recount a favorite memory you have of them.
√ Say hi to your neighbors. Silently wish them abundance and love.
√ Put extra cash in your wallet to give away to people on the street who ask you for money. (Be ready to give. Notice what that creates for you.)
√ Introduce yourself to someone you often encounter but don’t talk to (like the custodian or delivery person). Remember their name so you can greet them personally next time.
√ Buy flowers for you and light up your home with their vibrancy.
√ Clean out your car, and thank it for all the ways it runs smoothly and takes care of you.
√ Rub your feet (or hands or arms or belly) with lotion. Thank your body for being YOUR body.
√ Look for the beauty in everyone you see, even (and especially!) those who look most unhappy and miserable.
√ Slow down and make room for other people — open doors, hold the elevator, let that driver change lanes in front of you. Be the person who remembers that there’s more than enough room for all of us.

Kindness doesn’t require big gestures or a lot of words. It can be as simple as acknowledging that someone or something else exists, and appreciating that they do. When you are present and caring, the world around you relaxes and flows with greater ease.

That’s the power of kindness. It’s generative for you and everyone else too.

Choose it. And have a Happy Valentine’s Day!

P.S. I’ve opened up some Saturday coaching times this week If a session with me would be a kindness to you, choose it. Book your time HERE.

A book recommendation for February

Posted on 4 February 2019

This book is sarcastic and irreverent, but it is so sensible and brilliant! F*ck Love: One Shrink’s Sensible Advice for Finding a Lasting Relationship by Michael Bennett and Sarah Bennett. I listened on Audible over the course of two days, and when I was done with all the snarky quizzes and blunt advice, I felt GREAT!

And in this modern day world in which we actually get to choose our partners based on love and not our father’s arrangement of our marriages, or our society’s rules about who we can even be interested in, it’s important to still be sensible about who we choose to build a life with. That makes sense in theory, and I probably have said that aloud to myself and my friends and truly thought I believed it, but to be honest, I needed to HEAR these eight chapters by Michael Bennett and his daughter, Sarah, to have it sink in more. Love is SO SEDUCTIVE! And when I have fallen in love with someone, I have always thought somewhere deep inside me that it should be enough, or work out in some lasting way if I just loved the other person (and myself) enough. I had two (maybe three) past relationships that did not work out that have, despite time and distance, remained painful — wrapped up in heart-ache and confusion. Those were the ones where I DEEPLY LOVED THEM! Like, really REALLY loved them. I didn’t end the relationship hating them. I loved them, and it didn’t work out, and it was hard to reconcile that. If I love you ENOUGH, it has to work between us, right?

Romances are wonderful experiences of love, but also, would it be helpful to treat them a bit more like business deals? YES! I’d say so. But I haven’t always known how to do that. Will we actually work well together over the years, and create a life that works for both of us, or will this be a train wreck? What do I do when red flags come up? I think that’s what was most valuable for me as the chapters rolled on — the guidance about how to look objectively at whether this relationship is going to generate more or less over the years. Know it. And not make it personal or let it turn into an indictment of me, them, or even of love.

That’s what I’m saying about the sensible tone. The book is blunt. It’s sometimes sarcastic. But the authors use this voice to empower me to see more clearly, less personally, and far less through the rose-colored glasses of love.  And that was a gift!

The day after finishing the book I woke up grateful to a great boyfriend of the past who told me we were incompatible, when I wanted to keep working on ‘us’ because I loved us. And I thanked him. Truly thanked him.

A thank you to my friend Sophie who gave this book to my friend Erica for her birthday at a party where I could flip through it and get intrigued enough to buy it for myself. 🙂 If you read it, and it opens you up, or changes your world, let me know!

Is it possible that if you listened to your body, you’d make more money?

Posted on 21 January 2019

Is it possible that if you listened to your body, you’d make more money?

I’m so intrigued by that question.

And, I’m not the only one.  I’ve got a sweet group of clients who asked for a BODY class about MONEY.

They’ve got a sense that the more they acknowledge their body’s knowing, the more awareness they’ll have about making money.

So, they requested this class, and I created it!

I’m excited to play in the realm of questions and acknowledge the information my body gifts me continually.

What does my body know about the choices in front of me?
What does it share with me about the future?
What does it know about where to spend and what to buy and what those choices will create?

While I don’t know exactly what this class will create, it’s SO LIGHT, I know it’s another class that will change my whole world.

Would you like to join us?  We meet January 22 – March 26 — every Tuesday night at 7pm Pacific for ten weeks.

More details and a link to register are HERE.

****

This is a Joy of Embodiment class!  It’s part of a series of classes about having JOY with having a BODY!  Does that spark you?  Ten week classes give us enough time to choose a new way of being and to see what our choices create.  It’s not a lecture based class — it’s a laboratory for change!  And we’d love to have you in our lab.

Soft serve with sprinkles is a small thing, but it’s part of my choice to BE joy…

Posted on 10 January 2019

What energy can you BE in your life this year that will create more for you?

Yesterday I treated myself to soft-serve with colored sprinkles in the middle of the afternoon because the was a match to the energy I’m choosing to BE and to have more of — JOY!

I didn’t plan on that sweet treat — it popped up as a possibility and I choose it.

That’s me following the energy. 

I am interested in JOY.  I’m choosing to BE the energy of JOY.  And as I embody joy, I naturally perceive the possibilities that will generate more joy.

THAT’S what had me choosing soft serve with sprinkles.

What energy can you BE that will create more for you?

That’s January’s Question of the Month that I’ve posted on my Facebook business page. Ask that question with me all month long and see what it creates for you.

Also, if this is the year you’d like to practice following the energy, acknowledging your awareness, asking questions, and choosing with consciousness, take a class with me.

Alignment, a daily practice class begins Saturday. Body and Money, a ten week series begins on January 22. And if you want to book a package of new year-new you sessions, choose it!  I’m here, and a series of sessions all about who you are BEING in your world just might be the best investment you could make in you.

Start the year in the energy of abundance

Posted on 1 January 2019

Happy New Year! 🎊🎉🍾

Would you like to start the year with a fresh wave of energy? Tapping into abundance? Anchoring yourself in some daily practices of HAVING and RECEIVING — more!?

I taught a 21 Day class in November that was one of the most potent classes of the year. In that month so much in my world changed, I was in awe! I found a new home, I moved, I got all new furniture, and everything I had been making hard, became EASY! That is the energy of abundance. No scarcity. No lack. No contraction.

In December, settling in to my new home and creating more in my business, I was inspired to listen to it all again. And again –I received more! Money miracles, ease through the holidays, and a sense of well-being that carried me through the end of the year. I dare say I received even more the second go around…

It’s the class that keeps on giving.   But, of course — that is what abundance is.  It’s an overflow of energy that is always there for us.  And it doesn’t stop giving.  We just shut down our receiving.  And that is a choice.

If YOU would like to play with these 21 recording too, please — HAVE it!

And to make it ease for you, I’m putting it on SALE!

Living Abundance: a 21 Day Practice in HAVING It All and RECEIVING More consists of 21 class recordings all available for you in Dropbox to keep. Listen to one a day for 3 weeks and steep yourself in questions, awareness, choice and possibility. You’ll hear our stories, and you can let yourself be right there on the journey with us!

Regularly $199.
For this week only, have it for $99.

SALE ENDS JANUARY 7.

You changed this year! Have you created the space to acknowledge that?

Posted on 18 December 2018

Who are you now at the end of 2018?  And how are you different from the beginning of the year?

This time of year, the days are shorter, and holiday festivities keep me busy, but before the year winds down, I like to pause and reflect  – a LOT!

What did I choose this year?
What did I create?
What did I receive?

Can I call it all good before I step into a new year?

To me, that’s important and grounding.

If creating space for that kind of end of year reflection and visioning lights your fire too, join me from Solstice to New Year’s Day in a light-filled daily practice class.

12 Days of Inner Illumination begins Friday.  Class includes content, consciousness tools and sharing. You can join us live at 8am Pacific, or catch the recording and play in the exercises at any point in the day that works for you.

READ MORE HERE.

Or simply say YES and choose it!

Even those experiences of the last year that felt like disappointments or mistakes have gold for you.  Release any judgment of yourself or of Life and receiving that gold is so much easier.  I know that’s hard to do sometimes, but perhaps a group experience where we are ALL in that work together is just what you need!  😉   Ask and know.

It was ME that had to change… not the circumstances.

Posted on 5 December 2018

I often remind clients that if you want something different in your life, you have to BE different. You have to be willing to change your points of view, your way of interacting with the world, and even your personality and identity, in order for your dreams to come true.

I had to remind myself of that last month… and change myself!

In October I was looking for a new home in Los Angeles. I was supposed to move out of my apartment by the end of the month, but I wasn’t finding my new place. My experience was this: everything on the market was ugly, or inconvenient, or too expensive, or in a neighborhood I didn’t want to live in. I knew what I was looking for, and I wasn’t finding it.

Now, here’s the thing — I DID know what I was looking for energetically, but I was also holding on to an idea of what I thought it should look like. I was looking for something like what I had had. I thought my new home would be a duplex or a guesthouse, or a small homey looking apartment building in a sweet neighborhood, and nothing like that was showing up.

One day, a week after I was supposed to have already moved out, I was so frustrated, I set out on my daily quest of looking at apartments, but this time I let myself give up my expectations. I knew I had to approach this search differently, so I softened and surrendered. “Today, I’m interested in beautiful places to live, no matter where they are or what form they come in,” I said aloud. In that was a willingness to expand my gaze and see what I hadn’t been seeing.

The first place I stopped was in a neighborhood in Glendale I’d recently discovered, but it was a BIG apartment complex — the kind of building I was sure I did NOT want to live in. Parking was easy, the leasing office was open, the leasing agent Rachel was available, and she walked me to an apartment that stunned me!  What?! This is BEAUTIFUL! It totally has the energy of what I’ve been looking for! Could I live here?

YES!

Four hours later, I was approved, with a moving date that weekend. It was that easy.

There’s so much more I could share about the miracles of this new home (the ease of moving in, the special the complex offered me, the furniture I bought that weekend that goes perfectly, the beauty of this new neighborhood), but do you get the essence of my story? I had conclusions about what I was looking for, that I couldn’t see past, until that one day I CHOSE to look past them.

I’m willing to see what I’m not seeing.
I’m willing to become something different than what I think I am.
I’m willing to to be surprised by what I can have and become.
I’m giving myself amnesia about all of my conclusions now.

And then what’s possible?

EVERYTHING I’VE BEEN ASKING FOR!!!!

I’ve been in this new home for a few weeks now, and I feel like I’m living in a village. I like the big building, my balcony view of the city, my living room fireplace and super modern kitchen. I’m surprised by it all. It’s the upgrade I’d been asking for, and I’m amused that I almost wasn’t willing to have it.

What can you let go of today so that you can receive what you’ve been asking for?

Parts of yourself?
Conclusions about what things should look like?
Set points of view that limit your options?

Notice what lands in your life when YOU choose to be different.

If my story is helpful to you, I’d love to know. And, I’d also love to have you join me in any of the class offerings I’ve got on the calendar this month.  Check them out HERE.
