Same Goal?

GoalAre we all working on the same goal? This question has been relevant for the past several years while I have served on my townhouse Board of Directors. Managing 28 homes is never dull!! In fact, as a Board and community, we frequently ask how we can make sure we’re all moving in a forward direction … all connected to the same goal (to maintain and uphold our property values).

As the leadership for our residents, we’ve noticed that some projects are bigger “hot buttons” for some residents than others and even though we all have different approaches and ways of accomplishing the same things, our similarities connect us:  we love our property and we are grateful to live in such beauty. The bottomline is we allow for different ideas – all with the same end results in mind. When this connection between our similarities and differences happens, we are a powerful community!

American FlagWe recently had the book, our harp CDs and the BioMat at a Women Veterans Initiative event. It was really nice to connect with so many women who have served our great country.

One woman commented there were only two Marines at the event and she said it’s because there’s not very many female Marines. But she continued that she’d recently heard someone high up in the Marines organization comment that they need to be more open to women and encouraging women to join. Why? Because when the women are in Afghanistan and Iraq, they are going into the villages and connecting with the women and children, connecting into the community. He went on to say this “boots on the ground” approach is a critical way to obtain cultural information and build relationships. This sure sounds like creating world peace to me … bring it on!!

Arrival of New Energy!

far_infrared_biomatI was on a webinar on January 15, 2017, and the lightworker who hosted the session talked about the arrival of new energy. Have you heard about this? It’s been an interesting few months of intense energies to say the least! And then there was last night’s full moon – one of the most intense in several years.

As we have an opportunity to process this, we feel strongly that it’s about releasing and allowing women who are being called forward to play a big role these days (probably more than ever before). Lots of very interesting ideas and thoughts are being ushered in by lightworkers around the globe – all with the foundation of love. Just an example: did you see Sally Yates testify? WOW!

The lightworker community is working so hard on the planet’s behalf. Are you one of these lightworkers? You are invited to join in this very important, special time of new energy and love abounding…

Women’s March

Trump Womens MarchI had a gig on January 21, 2017, so I didn’t get to march for history … but I was there in spirit! The numbers are counted (no alt facts here, thank you very much!) and at least 100,000 women (and men) walked in St. Paul, MN, and millions around the world! As Caroline Myss says, “The beginning of redirecting the flow of our destiny.” Even though it’s months later, can you still feel it? It’s huge!!!

Marching for humanity, our dignity, our equality, our voices, our rights. While we have come through years (and generations) of feeling “one down,” powerless, suppressed, not good enough, victimized, squelched, minimalized, marginalized and quieted, NOT any longer!! On that Saturday this past January, we owned our power; we took it back as our birthright. The power surge that is running through all of our veins is because it happened collectively and peacefully, not just in the United States, but on all seven continents.

Are we one and done? Nope! Every person I’ve talked to since Jan. 21 talks about their action plan. I’m doing this; I’m doing that. What are you doing? Our empowered voices matter and they will be heard. All government officials took notice (whether they admit it or not). Why else would Trump’s tweets and his press secretary be focused on inauguration/rally numbers/size the morning after … like there’s nothing else to talk about?!! Really? Stay tuned because daily we are giving you something else to talk and tweet about!

All legislators work for us now; they are on our payroll and the words, “You’re fired just may backfire!!” Well, after all, we are ushering in Light from the Dark shadow that has presented itself. Love is more powerful … we know that, we represent that and we’re modeling it. What an amazing time to be alive … it is the culmination of years of work before us. Here’s to the expectancy of hope as we, singlehandedly and collectively, change the world for a wonderful future. Be awake and attentive to bring in the new! Join me dear sisters … we have a powerful mission in front of us!!

Women for Women InternationalI recently opened up a solicitation letter for money donations from Women for Women International. A nice gesture, they included three notecards and a powerful bookmark stating, “Stronger Women, Stronger Nations.” This made me pause for a few moments to reflect what that really means.

From the depths of my soul, I knew it was a true statement. Much of Women for Women International’s work is with women in countries that are war torn and who haven’t lived empowered lives. It is vital to support those who are much less fortunate than we are in the U.S. And with the new presidential administration and the current political turmoil, it feels like so much is being ripped away, yet I stand in gratitude for my many blessings, and how women here and around the world are uniting to truly create stronger nations. We are stronger … we are connected … we are empowered. What an incredible time to be on planet Earth!

A Manicure…

ManicureA couple weeks ago, because of the cold, harsh Minnesota winter weather, I felt like my hands were all tore up – cracks, raw and itchy, dry and flaky. I thought to myself, what would help? A manicure! And I even had a gift certificate from a dear friend.

The salon was able to work me in within 24 hours and almost immediately, my hands felt relief and I walked out of there with beautiful nails. Vain … well, perhaps, but it also felt like my hands started healing immediately and was an important bit of self-care. I loved every minute!!

Birthday CandlesWondering what I should write this month on this blog, a friend suggested that I write about my parents’ birthdays…yes, they are on the same day (six years apart, but nevertheless on the same day).

This year was a big milestone for my Mom and she requested NO party. So, my sister and I wanted to do something special and keep it a secret from her. Since she’s not on Facebook, we decided to post the following:

Occasionally, I’ve posted photos and different events going on in my parents’ lives here on FB. Mom is celebrating a milestone birthday on January 8, 2017. She has requested NO party so my sister and I thought it would be fun to surprise her with a showering of birthday cards. If you would like to send her one, please private message me for her address. I know she will love hearing from so many of you!! And some of you probably know this, but mom and dad share the same birthday! Dad is six years older so if you want to include him in the card showering that’s definitely OK, too!! Thank you … and Happy New Year to you!

And then the barrage of PMs started asking for their address; based on the number of responses, I knew this was a great surprise in the making!!!

The first “card” to arrive on New Year’s Eve Day (nine days before their special day) was actually way more than just a card … it also included a gift of sea-salted caramels (um, yum!) from one of MY friends who hasn’t even met or know my parents!! How cool is that!!

So then, New Year’s Day and January 2nd happened – quietly – without any mail service either days. The next day, the mailbox flooding began in full force. All told, they received 85+ cards from friends and family. But the best surprise – I was shocked at how many of my friends said, “Yes!” to send a card and write a love message when they only know me. How awesome is that … I feel truly encircled by an amazing community and I am grateful. My parents were “over the moon” with this incredible showering of love … a special thank you to ALL who participated!
