For the love of Technology

I'm in love with my new ipad. Its the realization of technology I imagined years ago (along with so many others) and now, here it is!
I love that I can run out of the house now, without a big laptop bag. I can do almost everything I would do out on the run with a slim little ipad tucked in my bag. Its technology bliss !

Thats how you do it....

Live in your Inspiration - thats how you do it!

Lately I have been getting lots of things done, and I'm doing it from a place of being *Tapped In* and Source Energy is flowing through me.

I feel so grateful to be in this body - living this life- doing what i do.
*~ *~ *~ Living in my Inspiration!!! ~*~*~~*~*~

New Paints

New Paints !! I'm really into painting colorful circles lately.
Every project ends up going that direction.

I love how creative expression allows the outpouring of whatever is necessary at the time.
right now the circles are soothing and make me feel joyful when I paint them in colors.

pure pleasure!

Wealth Mindset

You see this little Coach wallet?

Well it was a gift recently, that I didn't know what to do with!!

I stuffed it in a drawer to use for a night out....
(which would surely never come)
Why? well..... to be quite honest, its because I had a very hard time imagining myself carrying a Coach wallet ANYWHERE... ANY OCCASSION.

You see... Growing up, I associated people who owned
EXPENSIVE things = with Snobs.
As it often goes in school, I was picked on by young classmates for not wearing name brands.  Early on I began to associate name brands of any kind with rudeness, snobbery, and embarrasement.
Why, would I want to be associated with those experiences!?!?

Lately, more and more money is pouring into my life (YES!) and I am learning to embrace WEALTH.
It doesn't always come with a designer logo, but I am learning a Wealth Mindset is embracing ALL the abundance that flows my way... and stashing an expensive wallet in a drawer like a shameful secret is an Opportunity for SELF DISCOVERY work around my Wealth Mindset.

I will say... it took me a few weeks of mentally swimming with this situation to uncover my limiting beliefs and start to carry this wallet around nonchalantly and easily. LOL.

Now its an every day wallet, right alongside my less expensive purses and wallets. It really isn't important what any of it costs, as much as it is important that I ENJOY it in my life. And by all means I do not want to be energetically pushing away the luxurious & expensive things that make their way to me!

Now I am using it everyday as a Badge of Self Discovery around this issue in my life.

Mantra Mobile

This morning I made a * Mantra Mobile * to hang over my desk.
I love the idea that all these wonderful thoughts are dancing over my head while I am working at my desk.
I have been doing a lot of work with mantras for the last few years and I am working on some programs using mantras.

I used the side rail of my childhood baby bed. (yes! the one I slept in) I really love the symbolism here. I feel like I am incorporating an energetic piece of my roots into this present moment. By weaving this item into the project, I am energetically weaving in this mantras with my first subconscious patterning, the very first synaptic waves of my brain. i like :)!!!!

I will keep adding mantras and affirmations to the mobile as time goes on. Like my life, it will be a progression ~*~*~* !

Cutting my Hair with the home scissors again....

Ok, so when you grow up in a house with a mother who is a hair stylist, maybe you learn to be a little risky with a pair of scissors.   I'll be the first to admit that I don't really know what I am doing when I take the scissors to my hair.   Today, I just had to cut it off though!   It has gotten too long and I can't wait any longer to get an appointment.  

It always feels so liberating to cut my hair.    woohooo !   I took off about five inches in the back and snipped away at the front too.   Yeah!!  I feel lighter already.

Meditation Under the Shade Trees

Today I went on a journey of the heart....

I left the house early this morning with an mp3 meditation loaded on my iphone.
I took off for a walk at shelby & found a quite place under some shade trees to settle in.
I listened to the guided meditation while the birds flew above me, the bugs crawled around me, and the trees swayed in the breeze.   It was so peaceful to connect with nature this way while going on this journey of the heart.   I cleared my heart and soul & revived my whole being!  

As I was leaving I could not help but skip and run and laugh for a long stretch when I didn't see anyone around.   I just needed to bounce around in that fresh clean energy and celebrate.
there is nothing like pure joy that can't be contained in your body without expression!

I always want to remember this day <3

On a mission -USE IT UP !


I am on a mission lately.... I am trying to USE UP my current art supplies.
That's right... use it up.

The easiest way to do this is to allow myself the freedom to make a great big beautiful artistic mess.
Here we gooooooooooooo  !

Heart Journey - Letting it BE what it is

Self LOVE surpasses all Judgement!

Creating Symbolism of Transformation in Nature

Ongoing Growth and  Transformation of the Soul does not happen without many leaps of courage!

Lately, I am practicing being gentle with myself in difficult situations.   I am learning to remove judgement of the situtaions that I experience.... practicing being present..... and most of all remembering "its ALL good"  ;)

My wild flowers & grass garden ;)

More practice enjoying the imperfection.  My flower garden has quite a bit of grass in it.
I have been busy with other things lately & haven't had an opportunity to sit down and weed out all the grass.    I have pulled out a little bit here and there while walking by, but not a full blown weeding session.    Well...  I think I am going to do a little experiment and just let it be imperfect.   Let's see what happens.

Red Bird in my studio

Its hard to see clearly in the picture... but a RED BIRD came to visit me in my studio today.
I love red birds. They remind me of COURAGE.
I will consider this a sign to be courageous in areas of my life that challenge me. This little bird reminds me to fly free and enjoy the day.

evening tea

I'm enjoying the first day of May with a cup of yogi tea (a new one I just got at the grocery) and a lazy sprawl on the couch with a stack of books and my pen and paper. I'm listening to the dryer hum as the last load of laundry finishes up. This is *pure pleasure* in simple form... A great way to spend a Sunday evening.

What I'm up to Now ~ Intentions for Spring & Summer 2011

I've come full circle again.

This time last year, spring was arriving just like it is now - winter hibernation was ending and I was stepping out into sunshine days with fresh green leaves budding on the trees. New years resolutions were in full gear and I was turning the gears on all my plans for what I would do for the first year after the move out of the woodland street house. I had lots of plans!

And THEN ---- the flood waters came rushing in to turn life upside down and floating. The whole year was shifted from that point.

In so many ways, I feel 2010 just went off the timeline.
A wrinkle in time.

Here I am doing what I was going to be doing last year this time. So very interesting!

I trust the process of life & I trust the Universe, God. Everything is happening in DIVINE TIME.

Flying FREE

I have spent a lot of time in the last few years exploring the landscape of Inner FREEDOM.
This ring was given to me by a client at the end of a few weeks working together. It made my day. This little bird symbolizes the FREEDOM to FLY.

Another Great Day

loving the new set up. lots of room for the yoga mat

What I'm Up to Now ~ Intentions for Fall & Winter 2010

I'm thinking about the transition from summer 2010 to fall 2010.  We are moving in to the last two seasons of this year.... 

What a journey its been this spring and summer. fixing up the Ramsey property, the flood, bouncing around from one little summer project to the next. time has been flying by !

Now I am thinking about moving from summer into the seasons of fall and winter. the colder, stay inside times of year.

Now that things are settling a little bit after lots of transition... I want to ENJOY it all before moving again.

I have decided to have claim this fall & winter for creating and playing in my Artist Retreat House. I am going to practice living a more creative life ~ dig into all those paint supplies. use them up!
sew, practice yoga, dance, and write.

I also want to spend time in my new office. It really hasn't been set up that long, and I really want to enjoy working in there this fall and winter. I have a new *Invitation* platform and I want to develop that this year during the season of hibernation. I also want to host a few programs. Maybe a series or two?!? Set up a few Private Retreats?

And while hibernating, this winter, I am going to dream and plan for moving in the spring. Search for more potential rental houses, and retreat houses, and commercial buildings. I am knowing that new phases and transitions are just ahead.
I have many dreams for the next ten years, and that will likely mean a series of transitions from one stepping stone to the next.

But for Right Now... I've got some wonderful opportunities and I want to soak it all up and enjoy this time for what it is. Stay in the present moment and enjoy my life! Cause its all about getting ~ Pure Pleasure ~ from the Present Moment!

Happy Birthday to Me - More PURE PLEASURE

I am grateful for my life.   I am grateful for growing up a little more everyday.
I am grateful for the years that are building up my life.
Each year piled up on top of the other is another set of days where I have experienced life.
life here on planet earth. 
with beautiful people
for beautiful me.
and copious opportunities for experiencing and enjoying.

For me, the bliss comes from the PURE PLEASURE of maturing and evolving at the deepest levels of my soul.  And from that place of sometimes complicated and crucial transformations,  I tap in to every delicious little experiencing of living.
the taste of chocolate on my lips, hot apple cider, wind of every season blowing on my cheeks.
sunshine.  rain.  exchanging the energy of love in every possible way
fresh seasons... new leaves, golden leaves, barren trees, and hope of cycles that are always repeating.
holding hands.  holding hearts.  breathing deeply the air that surrounds me.
seeing your eyes.  seeing your soul.  knowing you and me deeply through each experience of living.
laughing.  talking.  drinking icy margaritas.
dancing.  smiling. filling up glasses of wine. sharing our stories and our spirits playing together.
waking up each day eager to work.  to create.  to dream. to build.
to create my life.
to live a life i LOVE living
inspiring others that it is possible for all of us.
untangling the twisted details. unraveling my soul and uncovering the complexities of our souls woven patterns of relating.
self discovery and life discovery.
the pleasures of living in this body. in this world. in this lifetime.

Here's to another year!
I am grateful for every previous year & so excited about everything that is still available to me as I live each new present moment.

Solo Road Trip - Coffee Shop Hop - Mobile Office

I have been thinking all summer about taking SOLO ROADTRIPS!
I remember days when I was *single* and flying solo in my adventures.

freedom.  room to breathe.   empty head space.  my favorite music in the car.   following butterflies and no plans.

I decided to head off this week for a mini solo roadtrip.   and the easiest one is up highway 65 to louisville.   I decided to make it a "coffee shop hop"  meets "eat pray love"  (the movie just came out and its on my brain)
each day I settled into a coffee shop to work.   I ordered a specialty coffee drink and spread my mobile office out on a cafe table.

first stop:  Heine Brothers

I had a pumpkin spice latte with cinnamon on top.
the weather is cool here in louisville, so it all feels so ~ autumn ~

Good Good Morning

I have had my touchscreen laptop for almost a year now... and I am still in love with this computer.
Morning coffee at this desk is a treat.
This set up gives me a huge screen, the great docking station where I can still use the touch screen.
and most importantly... plenty of room to spread out all my little notes and snip its.
its a Good, Good Morning

writing without words

well, i find my self far far away from the days i woke with words dancing in my head.

i think that might be because i spend so much time *relating*
the more i relate with people, the more i have to use W O R D S to communicate.
damn those pesky, illusive, not quite specific enough SPOKEN words. its a challenge to pick them, repeat them, and volley them back and forth with people in efforts to understand each other.

i do remember a time when i was alone enough to bounce the words around in my head instead of with other people. i wrote poems in my head while waking. i scribbled messages to the universe on little scraps of paper with one hand, while i simultaneously typed up journals and letters on my computer.
for this reason I have often thought i was a writer of some sort, and i have always assumed i would eventually write a book.

thousands of new opportunities just opened up before me

Life feels like a wide open canvas of opportunity right now!
I have lightened my load.  I am a mobile individual right now with nothing tying me down.
I can go ANY direction from here.

Excited to be painting the basement!!

This week I am feeling thankful for the flood.
It kicked my butt in gear on so many things.
Having to move every from the basement meant.... well, an EMPTY basement!

and what better time to clean it, paint it, redo the floors, and turn it into a whole new space.

I have decided to start using it for OPEN HOUSE.
I'm going to start inviting people over to play and hang out.

alone but not lonely

tonight i am alone with my purple blanket *((the healing blanket))* i call it... cause it has wrapped me in healing energy time and time again. this blanket has wiped my tears and keep my toes warm while i read books or meditated. draped across my tummy on summer nights when the fan was blowing cool and i wanted a cover, but not much cover... just a thin layer of protection under the dark sky.

tonight i sit with the purple blanket draped along the back of my chair as i write.
i've been painting alone tonight. watching the candle flicker and sipping pink lemonade.

tonight i am alone.... but not lonely.

long hair again

I have decided this week that I am ready to grow my hair out long again. from now until the end of summer.....
I have cut it many times in the last two years. 2 inches here. another 4 inches. it has gotten shorter and shorter. without getting realllllly short.
i have done that before... the drastic cut. the shedding of old all at once. it can be freeing, but i was not going for that extreme.

anyway... my hair... ahhh my hair has always been so personal to me.
curls... i always had so many curls. i was always working with the wavy hair and curling it even more.
i couldn't figure out how to get straight hair. smooth straight.
then i finally figured out the technique!! and have worn my hair straight and styled for the last two years. mission accomplished.

well.... i'm back around. feeling the desire for letting it just go wild. let it grow. let it grow long and blanket like, around me. let it be wavey. just wanna let it be. let spring come. let summer come. let me just be.

and in the future....
well... i'm still wanting to shave it someday.
it will be a monumental day. but i'm not ready yet. not yet.

love to the hair. love to the lovely play that is my hair

A *Resting Space* on my way....

I have been wanting to create an ARTIST RETREAT HOUSE for myself for quite a while.
I work well when I am alone.  I like to *~retreat~* hide away * think to myself.

The house on Ramsey Street is going to be a great mutlifaceted property/project.  
Its also going to be a RESTING SPACE for me on my way ....

I woke to an Indigo Sunrise

This morning I woke very early. My body was well rested and I felt like sneeking out of bed early to have coffee alone on the couch.

I sat by the window and looked out at the winter trees outlined against the nearly new morning.
I prayed. I meditated. I journalled and I got lost for awhile. When I looked up... the sky was indigo.
over and over in my mind i repeated. *** I woke to an indigo sky *** I woke to an indigo sky *** I am so grateful I woke to see this indigo sky.
