Women Voting

Women voteI was recently listening to Steve Kornacki, an MSNBC statistican. He was talking about a new poll of how educated women would vote today (Republican vs. Democrat). Pew Research shows the following statistics today:

  MEN WOMEN
Republican 48% 37%
Democrat 44% 56%

Further, from Kornacki’s reporting, the far right-hand column difference of almost 20 points is made up of college-educated women. This is being called the “Trump effect” and while we do not share our political views on this website, we do share women’s issues and this is most definitely about modern day women!

The bottomline is women will be voting in the mid-November elections … be sure to mark your calendar and be one of those who VOTES!!

Important Buddha Quote

QuoteSo, here’s an especially interesting quote for our times from Buddha, “Three things cannot long be hidden:  the sun, the moon and the truth.” Thank goodness the sun and moon are stable because they help ground us; this feels so important in these crazy political times of uncertainty – especially around the “truth.” What an interesting time this is and what a journey we’re all on!

The wonderful news is many of us are continuing to do our important work and we keep on, keepin’ on! As they say, “Carry on!”  Yes, we will!!

Impossible??

impossibleI recently saw on Facebook that a famous actor (sorry, I can’t remember who!!) said, “Impossible really says I’m possible.” Don’t you love this?!!

While there are a “dime-a-day” numerous coaches and consultants who want you to believe your value/worth and also want to help you “get there,” this quote speaks to transforming a weakness – or perhaps a vulnerability – into a strength. A wonderful thought, especially as we move into a lovely SPRINGtime!

Standing Ovation!

2017 HBB ConferenceIn the last blog post, I mentioned keynoting at the Healing Beyond Borders’ international conference. Their conference theme was “The Next Harmonic.” When I learned of this theme, I immediately thought, “They definitely need the harp for any discussion about harmonics … without any doubt, this is in my wheelhouse!!”

The harp is one of, if not the most, harmonic instruments. It is because the strings are “open,” with one pitch activating or ringing frequencies in the upper and lower octaves of the instrument. These harmonics or overtones are immediate as the sound board “kicks out” the vibrations to the listener. Paradoxical in nature, the harp’s harmonics are so gentle, soothing and comforting, but also very powerful, healing and spiritual.

I believe this experiential presentation resonated with the audience because they gave a standing ovation! I have had a few standing ovations in my speaking career, but this one felt extra special. Perhaps it was because it was also my birthday and it felt so honoring!!

Total Eclipse

Total EclipseI recognize the total eclipse was several months ago, but I never wrote about my experience on this blog and want to share!

Sometimes, synchronicities happen … and that’s exactly what happened for the total eclipse on August 21, 2017. The state of Nebraska, especially along I-80 (the southern corridor) was projected to experience totality and more than a year before the big day, the entire state began a marketing push to encourage tourists to visit during this energetic time. Since I am originally from Nebraska and one of my dear aunts lives in Kearney, she sent me many articles over the past year giving me information about this major event. As I began scheduling August gigs, I realized I would be keynoting at the Healing Beyond Borders’ conference in Denver the weekend before the Eclipse. Perfect timing to speak at the conference on August 19th (my birthday!), then drive six hours north to my aunt’s house in Kearney on August 20th, arriving just in time to experience a total eclipse the next day!

The morning of the 21st, my aunt and I made breakfast, went for a walk, prepared for the eclipse and went out to lunch. It was a beautiful warm day with clear skies and we chose to sit on her back deck that overlooked a large expansive common area. Shortly after noon, we began looking at the sun through our special glasses; totality was to occur at 12:52 for one minute and 45 seconds. And as we looked around the community, we saw numerous people sitting outside doing the same thing – all gazing up at the sun. When the big moment of totality occurred, the entire community started cheering! It was a really cool experience watching this with my 88-year-old aunt in the privacy of her home, yet also feeling like we were all in community, too!

Once totality occurred, it was safe to look directly at the sun and that is when I took the photo above. I won’t forget the beautiful, sparkling aura of the sun on that very special day. Wow, what an awesome experience!

Happy New Year!

Happy New YearAfter the “blitz” and “pedal to the metal” month of December, New Year’s is a welcome celebration – without all the work, right?!!

It is definitely a holiday to reflect on the past year and set intentions for the upcoming year of 2018. What’s on your list of intentions?

Also, we always select a word for the year … last year’s theme/word was service; the year before was grace. We loved being of service in 2017 in so many ways! And our word for 2018 is gratitude. We will keep you aprised of how this unfolds throughout the year…

Happy New Year from Women as Healers!

Happy HolidaysFor women (and some men, too!) the month of December is an extremely busy time – besides already full schedules, there’s shopping, extra cooking/baking, decorating, wrapping gifts, partying/celebrating, sending holiday cards, etc.

After all the busy-ness (and sometimes craziness!), it is so important for us to pause, breathe, rest and “take in” the joys of the season. We are wishing you many wonderful moments throughout the holidays…

Happy Thanksgiving!

ThanksgivingWe love the Thanksgiving holiday (Nov. 23) and actually, it seems to expand into whole month of November, doesn’t it?! Do you also love this month of gratitude? What are you most grateful for?

As we reflect on “women as healers,” we have several things on our gratitude list:

  • Our gigs that are inspirational and empowering to women (and men who love women!)
  • Women’s voices who are persistent and speaking the truth.
  • Worldwide support of moving women’s issues and equality forward.
  • Contributing to global healing by networking, connecting and deepening relationships (absolutely vital to the world these days).

From Women as Healers, we wish you peace and blessings this Thanksgiving “season.”

Make a DifferenceThis blog post is about sharing some of our observations about the current political “leadership.” Are you “on board” with the changing policies, the release of long-standing relationships (eg., NATO, NAFTA, etc.), hyperbolic and inflammatory statements, shifting values and principles, etc. with this current Administration?

For many of us, it has been very challenging to watch, observe and see how it impacts many people – whether it’s immigrants, disabled, seniors and elders, scientists, Mother Earth lovers, diverse and “fringe” groups, etc.

Energetically, it feels so unsettling to watch and experience the dismantling of these many systems and yet, we’ve also been seeing something very powerful. Despite all the craziness, we are carrying on with our healing. We have important work; we are persisting and continuing to do what we all know is right and appropriate. This is happening in spite of the “leadership” modeling something entirely different – falsehoods, unethical choices, lacking integrity, caring only for himself and a few nepotistic relationships and his cronies, etc.

We believe there are many more of us holding space for love, light, integrity and ethical decisions. The truth will prevail and so will high vibrations. It reminds us of what happened after 9/11 … we started connecting, and paying attention to each other, looking around us and staying alert/vigilant.

Humanity is strong and resilient. We are not interested in going backwards and we are ever more mindful of all the good work we will continue to do. We are awakening … carry on!

Self CareDo you agree these are absolutely crazy political times?! Regardless which side of the aisle you are on, the craziness right now is unmatched, isn’t it?!

How will all the drama end? When will it end? As they say, stay tuned!!

In the meantime, we often write about self-care and perhaps there’s never been a more important time for women (and men!) to care for ourselves than now. And what ways of self-care nurture your feminine (and masculine) spirit? What do you find helpful during these tumultuous times – walking in nature, exercising, breathing, laying on the BioMat, meditating, listening to harp music, talking to friends, eating nutritious food, and on and on the list may go. What are your favorite self-care tools to care for your heart? Regardless what works for you, just be sure to do it … especially now!
