Lessons in Alchemy – Business

Lessons in Alchemy -Business

I started my first business in 1994 – home baked goods…lol – which later became event planning, gift baskets (in its heyday), then later I had a daycare (seemed like a good idea to be home with my children). I did henna body art professionally (and made a ton!) And I was a doula until I retired… all of which were more supplemental income and training in my mind.

I was trained in coaching and began that in 2008, I received my Kings vision of business in 2010 and We’ve been in business as our sole income since 2012 –

As you can imagine we’ve learned a great deal along the way… What works and what doesn’t….

One big thing is… Continue reading “Lessons in Alchemy – Business”

The Culture of Co-Opting Pain

One thing I have noticed in the last 7 years is that I find more and more people who have amazing lives who feel bad and guilty about them. People who were never abused, oppressed or struggled feeling like something is WRONG with them or like they need to carry some guilt for their happiness. People who maybe have gone through challenging things who aren’t carrying deep wounds but feel like they SHOULD.

I’ve observed people attempting to do what I call the Culture of Co-Opting Pain. Where you begin to take on others identity, orientation, and perspective as a form of Empathy. It is the Shadow of empathy.

I am not for any attempt to make people feel bad, shame or like they should shrink because they are Happy, Healthy, Loved, Wealthy, Liked, and full of what they Desire.

I see more and more this pressure for people to:

*confuse authenticity with having deep insecurities or issues.
* confuse being healthy with being able-est
* confuse loving one’s body with body shaming others
* confuse enjoying one’s life- with a lack of compassion for other lives
* confuse loving one’s own gender, and sexuality – with oppressing that which is NOT one’s own orientation

In other words, the only way to prove that you accept and care for others is to identify as they identify – which is not TRUE – and is actually just another form of monoculture and rejection of the diversity that we are here to experience.

Perhaps this has been forgotten:

“You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.” ~Marianne Williamson

In other words- be YOU – be Happy… and feel free to be EXCELLENT!!

The Blessing of Missing Out

Most of us know about FOMO, also known as the Fear of Missing Out

It’s the driving force of many actions these days, the Fear of Missing Out causing us to fill our days in unconscious ways that are not aligned with our joy, desires or purpose…

There are many ways to release this FOMO, but one of the best is to make peace with your past.

You see, past regret and fear is what creates the fertile soil for FOMO. Looking back on previous times and feeling like you made bad calls, missed opportunities, and simply could have done better than you did will then cause you to project that fear into the future

YOU can get free from this when you understand the BOMO- the Blessing of Missing Out.

BOMO is the deliberate opening to seeing the amazing blessing in everything you have missed out on. It is the Reframe that changes EVERYTHING.

It gives you freedom, groundedness and a deep Knowing that you need fear nothing.

When my King and I didn’t go to the show in Vegas, when we made that choice, we just knew we wanted to stay in the pool and hot tub and didn’t want to go to a show… we removed FOMO as a factor in our life… And we found BOMO.

Look at your life darling… Where has been the BOMO?

Lessons in Alchemy- Integral Living

There is a Universe of difference between these three statements:

I can’t
I don’t know how
I chose not to

One is a function of true possibility – and so is a lie, for there is nothing you can not do.

One is a function of ability – This is the space of potentiality….curiosity and being inquisitive as all things are learnable.

One is a function of availability- a decision made based on benefit and effectiveness. Continue reading “Lessons in Alchemy- Integral Living”

What is the Greatest Thing that Undermines a Woman’s Ability to have a Happy Relationship?

The greatest thing that undermines a woman’s ability to have a happy relationship with herself as well as a Masculine Complement, is not the narrative of her own life- but her internalization of the narrative that is fed to her by her family/society: Continue reading “What is the Greatest Thing that Undermines a Woman’s Ability to have a Happy Relationship?”

He’s A Man, Not Your Girlfriend Part II

Relationship Lessons: He’s a Man, not your best Girl friend part 2

Many ladies have asked me “How does making him my best girlfriend look”…

Here’s the thing my love… It looks different for everyone.

I know this sounds crazy but if you’re in a permanent partnership and you find yourself often offended by how he’s choosing to spend his time, by his interests etc; that’s a good sign that you’re trying to make Him into your Girlfriend. Continue reading “He’s A Man, Not Your Girlfriend Part II”

Be Brave, Mama

I recently read an article in Cosmopolitan against celebrating the gender of one’s baby.
The person who wrote it seemed to have a big chip on her shoulder against baby showers in general and even gestational markers as being things that convey to a woman that her value is in her ability to grow a tiny human.

She suggests that women have other things to be concerned about and this is what’s adding to the stress.

I’d like to offer a completely different take… Continue reading “Be Brave, Mama”

He’s A Man, Not Your Girlfriend Part I

Relationship Lessons- He’s a Man, not your Girlfriend darling. Part 1

Good morning lovelies,

I awakened this morning thinking about relationships. One of the biggest mistakes a woman can make is to try to make her husband/boyfriend into her best GIRLfriend.

Don’t get me wrong my loves, my King is definitely my BESTfriend and Favorite Human… But He’s not my girl friend and there’s a distinction with a Huge difference in that.

Many women don’t understand or realize how they do this nor are they conscious of why they do this or the eroding this does to the relationship. Continue reading “He’s A Man, Not Your Girlfriend Part I”

On Gender Norms

You may have noticed the idea of having or expressing gender normative behavior has become somewhat of a pejorative. I hesitated to share this due to the sensitivity of the topic and my desire to not wound those whose biologic sex and energetic gender are are not the same. That said I’ve been told that this is important enough to need saying and so I ask that it is read in the spirit of love, life and compassion that it is offered.

There are many incorrect and nonbeneficial beliefs associated with gender norms so let’s begin to unpack and clarify it. Continue reading “On Gender Norms”
