What themes show up in the various roles that you play? In 1984 I used the What Color is Your Parachute? approach to changing careers. Though I can’t locate the maps I made then, I recall that “Teacher,” and “Counselor/Social Worker” were still present as they were when I took vocational tests in High School. (Actually, I have those high school tests in a file and so funny to see that “YWCA Staff Member” and “Religious Activities” also scored high! I strayed a bit, but not too far, eh?)
Certainly being a Life Coach falls well within these themes, but I’ve also come to recognize a sub-theme to this service side of my personality. It’s to be a resource provider, a facilitator, a connector between a person’s search and her/his inner knowing. It’s what I like most about being a Life Coach. The very foundation of coaching is to inspire clients to connect deeply with their inner wisdom, not to tell them what to do.
It’s no wonder that one of my biggest intents for this website is to provide resources for new thought/new energy seekers. What is clear to me, however, is that it is not enough for me to create the books, audios, blog posts and emails. These don’t fully satisfy my desire to be with people as the connector I am. I like to be hands-on, personal, and intimate, fully and in-the-moment, sensing the beingness of others. I like playing with a community of folks experimenting with expanding themselves to new possibilities, new potentials.
Just as I coach my clients to create environments that support their needs, I am reaching out to invite people to come play with me in a more personal way in order to meet my inner need to be a connector.
Resourcing the Riches of Your Higher Self LIVE teleclass is aimed at people who are new to this whole idea of feeling and sensing energy. In ways that feel comfortable and non-threatening, this six session teleseries introduces you to a variety of openings to your capacity to recognize and interpret the messages you are receiving all the time from the expansive part of yourself. You get the unique opportunity to meet other people who are ready to play and practice new ways of experiencing the world differently. To celebrate the internet launch of my book, this June class is on sale for 50% off through May 31.
The Coached Collectives are collaborative, co-creative calls totally focused on surfacing the communications coming through the groups’ awareness. My vision for this community of seekers is to explore the absolute exhilaration of sharing “out loud” the fun, intriguing, synchronous, edgy, interesting, and even mundane messages that gain clarity through the energetics of group dynamics. There’s a Preview Call coming up on Wednesday, June 2, 11:00 am CT. Come play!
- Are you intrigued by the idea of channeling?
- Do you like to play with like-minded friends?
- Do you want to know more about sensing energy?
- Is being an adventurer, explorer, seeker, student, or joiner one of your themes?
Consider this your personal invitation to live your theme with me.
“What are you passionate about?” A friend asked me that question on New Year’s Eve about 15 years ago. It surprised me that I had to really think about it, an answer didn’t come immediately.
Now I know the answer. It seems simple to me, and yet it’s such a part of me I think I understand why it didn’t jump out at me that night. My vision then of being passionate included the narcissistic, in your face zealot, or perhaps the high-risk, defy death, adrenaline junky.
What I’ve come to realize is that my passion purrs in the background of my daily experience. From the dictionary, passion is a “keen enthusiasm or intense desire for something” which I think is actually the smoldering “stuff” that compels us (if we listen to the call) to be more of who we authentically are. I believe now that both passion and purpose in life are the same.
Here’s what passion = purpose looks like for me: I love being with people who know themselves deeply, and especially love being with people who first grasp their deep, divine essence. My passion is to be the resource, a conduit, for this recognition of awe, wonder, and delightful acceptance of who they really are.
Recently I found old folders from a job I held in the ‘90’s. It made me smile to see how my passion = purpose was playing out then through many handouts, articles and classes around the theme of “listening to your inner wisdom to find wellness.” And 10 years prior to that I remember sitting in a graduate advisor’s office at UT telling him, “I feel a calling to help people discover how good they can feel in a body that is fit and active.” And more examples came to mind of being a teacher, sharing whatever I was into with anyone else who also wanted to be doing that thing I was doing.
What is smoldering in you? What is the theme of your life? Does it feel like your passion? How does what you do on a daily basis connect with your purpose?
Learning to recognize, allow and interpret the communication streaming to you from your Higher Self can help you answer these questions. Next week I am excited to “officially” launch the sale of my book, How To Channel Your Higher Self. I invite you to join me in my kick off event, a free teleclass called 2 Simple Practices to Feel Peaceful and Clear When Fear and Uncertainty Surround You. The two experiences I share in this class are powerful, yet very accessible, ways for you to expand your skills for tapping into your divine mind. Come join me even if you’re not fearful and uncertain, rather you are interested and curious about the idea of channeling your Higher Self.
Beginning Tuesday, May 11, purchasers of my book also receive twelve bonus gifts all complementing the experiences found in How To Channel. From soul focused nutritious recipes and awareness filled ebooks, to energy embedded audio programs and workbooks, you create a valuable resource library for your spiritual path. Visit my website on Tuesday for more details.
