Talking with the powers that BE

(or things I noticed on my last walk with nature)

Love transforms everything

Not by hanging on, but by letting go. When we release our grip on absolutelypositively everything we allow life to move forward effortlessly. Just note: effortless does not equal easy. Effortless equals with the least amount of resistance. 

The path is always clear

Even and especially when it's not. You can stand in the middle of the road and look ahead or behind but the only thing that truly matters is exactly where you are. When you give that presence the attention it deserves every step becomes intentional. And when every step is intentional you begin to realize there are no wrong turns. There are only turns and one turn is always guaranteed to lead to the next. 

Choose champion companions

Love matters. Kindness matters. Respect matters. Make sure the people you surround yourself with are willing to be a champion of your success and happiness (and you of theirs). Life is too short to surround yourself with people who are more interested in taking you down than lifting you up. 

Boundaries are essential

You can't walk through the world (happily) without a few boundaries in place.: one around you, one around your work, just for starters. It's an act of self-love and preservation. The world is full of characters, sister, and you really do need to draw the line as to where and how you will share and invest your energy. When you place strong boundaries around your beautiful self you gift yourself with a level of personal trust and respect that's second to none.

Transform your view 

Shed your own misconceptions. Alter your own reality. Look through a different lens and see what's new. Everything is always changing, including you. Be love, sweet friend. It makes all the difference in the world.  

The woo of who you are

I was outside taking photographs of crystal jewelry creations that I wanted to list in sundries  when I stumbled upon this brilliant creature who strung her web above lush hydrangeas. 

Pretty intelligent of her, don't you think? 

This is the power of nature. 

When you connect with it you begin to realize that you, too, have this brilliance ingrained in your body and mind. 

You, too, can find the perfect place to spin your web so that your existence on this planet can be rewarding on every level. Rewarding in such a way that you don't just survive, you thrive. 

What's the secret? 

Trust. 

Trust that when you get an inkling to spin your web three inches above of fully blossomed hydrangea plant you will attract what you desire, whatever that may be for you. 

Trust that if that web gets trashed by things like weather or beasts you can simply move on and spin a new web in an equally astonishing place. 

Trust that if the new equally astonishing place turns out to be not so astonishing you can—you guessed it—move on because everything you need to spin your web is neatly tucked inside you. 

All you need to do is show up and do your thing. 

If that thing is spinning webs, spin.

If it's creating art, create.

If it's speaking up, speak up. 

You get the point, because this knowing and understanding is tucked inside you, too. 

Listen for it.

Allow the woo of who you are to be as brilliant as it is. 

Because it is.

Because you are. 

Brilliant.


I am planning to find joy in the woods with seven lovely sisters at Joy Glamp, September 24-27th. Are you one of them?
