Clear Message

May 30, 2016
Today’s Nonsenses Immersion invited the blue energy to be expressed in a clearly defined form. “Let your message be clearly defined and communicated,” I discerned as I chanted the tones and painted the colors.

Yes!! I’m on it!

See for yourself and comment. What message rings out from my website? I’d love to hear what you get.

Thanks!

Inner Flame

I was up during the night reading the Trail Journal of a woman struggling on the Appalachian Trail. Her friend requested trail angel help in the form of slackpacking – shuttling her pack so she can walk w/o gear.

Judgements surge! If she had my coaching she’d be delving into her Inner Journey!

Fast forward…… to taking back this projection to the possibility that it’s MY Inner Journey work to be done!

What arose in my Nonsenses Immersion was a flame of creative empowerment, capped with a gem of spiritual light in the spectrum of wholeness. The characteristic blending of all the energies to create each other was felt strongly.

The call to ask for help taking MY next steps, considering lightening my burden, perhaps?

Perfect Love by Barbara wrapped up the exercise. Maybe that hiker would enjoy Katahdin Sojourn for motivation!

A friend sent a reframe of my Old Story “I was cheating on my husband while hiking”. Her words suggested this other perspective: “your marriage was cheating on you. You were being true  to yourself. I hadn’t thought of that before! From that angle, the shame can subside.

Heart’s green light flows today, from a self-loving center core out to the world.

What She Said

A Dreaming AT Hiker comments:

“My husband wants me to wait a year to save up, to spend and experiment with all things before going on a through hike. I want to start in June, 2016, maybe not finish, maybe hike for 3-5 months. I’ll be on SS, not very much, but enough to hike I think. Give me your thoughts. I know it is my decision. I’ve been backpacking for years, but never on my own. I have most all gear, but I need a few things, lighter stove, pad and such. Sunday was actually the first day I’ve been 13 miles. In fairly good shape, hike or bike almost daily and I live in the mountains.”

My response:

Touching into YOUR heart, YOUR purpose, and attendance to the five essential areas of consideration as outlined in the article I shared with you, could clear your path to this very personal choice. Your husband may be the voice on the outside mirroring an inside voice encouraging you to consider the Inner Journey that’s already part of the Outer Journey. All of this choosing counts as your personal fulfillment of your AT journey. Short walks on the AT for this year, followed by a thru-hike next year could be a satisfying way of creating a relationship with the trail. No reason to limit ourselves to a single passing of the path! What a rich life experience you describe!!

Saving Mr Banks – and Me Too

I watched the video of Mary Poppins, followed by Saving Mr Banks which reveals the story of P.L. Travers’ journey to signing over the rights to her creation. It was a Radical Forgiveness journey. How? The author had a S.T.O.R.Y., a Sustained Tale of Repressed Yearning. Mary Poppins had been Mrs. Travers’ characterization of her childhood experience with her dad, Mary Poppins playing the role of magical rescuer and someone who set things right.

What I realized from Saving Mr Banks was that what it took  to share Mary Poppins with the world through the eyes of Walt Disney was “finishing the story”. Allowing her dad to rise out of his prison, to find his joy AND be prosperous, let her share Mary Poppins with the world. Letting there be a New Story, set Mary Poppins free.

I see something of MYSELF in her story. I’ve been reluctant to share my Appalachian Trail story, an important plank in a hiking coach’s platform, wouldn’t you think? Well, just like P.L. Travers, I have been reluctant to turn over my trail persona to the world. To do that would mean revealing a part of the story that still feels shameful to me. Letting the main character, myself, be on stage as a woman who accomplished her great feat of hiking the Appalachian Trail while cheating on her husband, is hard for me to tell.

Although I have since divorced, there’s still a lingering shame – that scarlet letter “A” – that I want to hide. So, freely sharing the truly human story of that lonely woman who embarked solo and attracted a partner on the trail, discovering what heartsinging partnership could be, mirrors P.L. Travers opening to accepting her dad as the man he was, and freeing her own heart.

I’m open to that! Let’s see if I can DO it!!

I’ll start with today’s Nonsenses Immersion. Here goes!!

Nonsense4.26.16Simple wholeness and balance filled me during this immersion. The message I got in this immersion is, “All experiences are part of the wholeness. You did what you did, and that wove your story. As human beings, we choose all sorts of paths, actions, ways of being. Guess what, Regina? You are not the first nor the last woman to discover and express her heart, her need, her self through sexual activity. The guilt, shame, self-loathing you attach to that comes not from TRUTH, but from patriarchal bigotry that puts women in emotional slavery. To be willing to tell your story, claiming it as your human story, could be healing for just the women who can be set free by it.”

Well, today, I can hear that intellectually. And I’m willing to put this out in my blog. I am open that my soul is adjusting its balance with a New Story. How about this one: The more I show up as me, with the story that I’ve played, the more my true purpose is fulfilled and those I’m here to serve find me. I am lovable just the way I am! Mr Banks is saved – and so am I!!

Does this story resonate with you? Do you have a story, a dream, an expression, a yearning that you are afraid to fulfill because of an untold part of your past? Is something blocking you from your goal? Perhaps you don’t even know what it is, just that somehow you can’t seem to take the steps toward something you really want to do? I can help! I recognize it and have steps to take. The first one is to be open to loving yourself in YOUR story, just as you are.

Let’s chat about it and get the conversation started. Get on my calendar for a 20-minute Next Steps Chat and start your journey to freedom, more energy, a new sense of self……………………

Heart



I lovingly embrace ALL my life experiences with ease and joy.

Even the scary ones! Even the ones that invite me to allow one certain man to love me and know what I ‘m thinking and  feeling. Even the ones that mean sharing, sharing, sharing (oh my! this is so hard for me and I don’t know why, oh wait, I do know why, it’s because I might make a mistake and someone could be uncomfortable and judge me for being greedy when really they’re seeing themsleves in me because they want to be brave and share what Spirit sings in them…….)

Today, I take into NonSenses Immersion My Brave Heart, bathing it in the green emerald light of Love, Trust, Opening, Receiving, Giving, Sharing, Grieving.

Yammmmm…….

Interesting! Green, shimmering and full, could only arise OUT of yellow’s nourishing light and blue’s expressive light. My lesson in that is that my sharing may arise out of my nourished and authentically expressed energies. Love stands not alone.

Green also begged for the full spectrum of colors to stand with it. Love attracts wholeness, fulfillment, company!

Opening to Spirit, opens me to YOU!

STEPS

Here’s what I’m taking into my NonSenses Immersion today: I embrace all my life’s experiences with confidence and joy. Where did that come from? Louise Hay’s list of affirmations. My arm has been hurting for a while and her view suggests that’d a sign of resistance to receiving. Interesting!

Another suggestion that receptivity may be a challenge for me was my reaction to watching Milana Leshinski’s invitation to join her Joint Venture Insider’s Circle. “It wouldn’t work for ME! I’m too different. My idea doesn’t fit.”

I’m open, however, to attracting a JV community that DOES support my idea, my niche. That’s what I’ll take into my NonSenses Immersion today. Let’s what what happens! image

Form Arising

image

My Nonsenses  Charging paintings the past two days have emerged with form! Usually, the colors alone in patches and washes satisfy my feelings for a color immersion. As I’ve been shifting my perspective of sharing HeartSingingWalk from secretively personal to universally integrated, I’m allowing sensory shape to become visible.

As I write this, especially those words “universally integrated”, I realize that this journey of consciousness is actually way bigger than my own life! What seems to me now to be a big transformation for me in my own life CAN go even beyond what I have been imagining, until now anyway. I have been fairly daunted with the vision of a tribe of a hundred embracing and integrating HeartSingingWalk in their lives. Suppose the true spirit of HeartSingingWalk is to reach even further than my community! How about thousands walking to Wild Wind and Senses Walk! Holy Moly! That knots my stomach!

What it also does is help me ease into the idea that there are a HUNDRED heartsingers energetically  vibrating with HeartSingingWalk in its current phase of reality.

The tree form arises as a metaphor of my growing idea. From a rich and supportive root of personal and professional assistance in the fertile soil of Time the trunk of Forgivenesswalks rises upward. The tree’s trunk is formed by its sturdy principles of Spiritual and Human unity, Nourishment in Nature, Authentic personal expression as fulfillment of Higher Purpose, and others waiting for language.

These principles grow and branch upward as specific programs and products, delivered through a dichotomous array of community members, all connected as tree branches and growing organically.

The growth experienced by each member produces the leaves, those manifestations of the play of light and water.

That’s the Forgivenesswalks Tree!

I believe that any growing idea could be as a tree, even an imagined walk of the Appalachian Trail! That’s an interesting juxtaposition – turning that wonderful journey metaphor into a tree! Try it! Then, set a time to chat about it with me! I’d love to hear what’s arising from your Nonsensory play as your metaphor for a creation.
Talk with Regina!

Hesitance Reframed

I found my first ever blogpost on a wordpress.com site I had forgotten about!  I thought I had lost that post, thinking it had been posted on my wordpress.org website. But, while commenting on a friend’s blog and having to sign in, I discovered MY blog!  What’s even more interesting is that the sentiments revealed in that post mirror my current feelings about being visible in the world – even after seven years of growing into this new role.

What’s different is that NOW I am much more patient with the pace at which my transformation is occurring. I can see the growth that has taken place, and appreciate more and more just how monumental it is to transform deep limiting beliefs. I’m open to the idea that the beliefs that linger are the ones that contain my true purpose for life, and also are the source of my power and my niche.  It’s the very people who recognize themselves in MY transformation who I am here to serve!  The more I’m willing to SHARE my steps of evolving intentionally from a shy, invisible heartsinger into a joyously prosperous, dynamically visible and authentically transformed leader the more others on the same journey can see me as a model.  Read this post from February, 2010 to see my mindset when I started my coaching business. Then, stay tuned for the continued tales of transformation!

“Do you take steps into new territory with ease?  I learned last week in the Spirit Rich Retreat that I don’t!  At least, not in the realm of career.  Sure, when I get out on a Nature trail, I confidently and eagerly embark on a journey.  My heart sings when my feet hit the Earth!

So, why do I resist taking steps in creating my business?  Why have I resisted claiming my joy as a hiker, a Nature guide, a consummate Nature lover?  I can see it more clearly now.  I’ve had deeply ingrained beliefs that expressing my joy as a professional Nature guide has been something I’ve believed I can’t do!

I’ve surrounded myself with people who tell me that’s not a real job. I’ve  convinced myself that the national economy supports that belief too.

Well, I’m ready to topple that belief!  I’m ready to claim that exploring Nature, guiding others in Nature, and hiking ARE viable career choices for me!   I’m ready to attract mentors, clients, supporters, venture capitalists, marketers, health practitioners, insurance agents and all sorts of other experts into my expanding circle of creators.  I’m attracting all sorts of people who say “Yes!” to me as a spiritually and financially rich Nature guide.

Maybe it’s not that I have to convince others to enjoy Nature.  I have to convince ME!”  I wrote this seven years ago!

Does any of this resonate with you? Do you feel trapped by your limiting beliefs and wonder if you’ll EVER be free of that one way of being that just seems all-pervasive, like it must just be the way you “are”?  If it’s something you’d like to change, that you have a hard time accepting about yourself, then let’s chat!  I want to LISTEN to that S.T.O.R.Y. or   that Sustained Tale Of Repressed Yearning.

This is ONE of the evolutionary discoveries I’ve made since writing this first blog. As I observed my own growth, I’ve coined this and other descriptions of myself, then put together ways to have it be different!

  • First is to LOVE myself being just that way!
  • Next is to get really good at feeling and expressing how I really FEEL
  • Then, say, “Hey! I think I could just be making this all up!”
  • Next, say, “I’m open to seeing this differently.”
  • Then, I go for a WALK, to let that new thought settle into my body.
  • Finally, I let SPIRIT do the rest, and I watch the miracles happen.

What’s even more exciting is that I can see obvious changes in my life that prove these steps work!

  • I have satisfied, successful clients who have had breakthroughs in all of these steps.
  • I have a new relationship, and love myself having divorced.
  • I am financially prosperous
  • I even landed not just one but TWO jobs that rely on loving Nature, hiking, and sharing bold ideas.

I wrote that post seven years ago.  I can see that I’m still shy about revealing what’s really going on with me, but I’m still DOING IT!  The difference is that I see my shy, invisibility as my source of power, and authentic vulnerability. Hey! If a shy, reluctant person like me can get out there and teach, share, coach, and guide, then ANYONE can transform their own life!  So hop on this path and play with your own transformation!

Let’s chat!  Get into my calendar and set up a time.  20 minutes if you’re just dipping your toe in. I’m willing to give you a full 45 minutes for a Dream Weaving session if you’re eager to jump in to looking at yourself with love.


Bold

This year at the Park Visitor Center I have been boldly sharing my Nature discovery philosophy in my programs. I let visitors know that my mentor is Rachel Carson, the scientist, who said, “It’s not half so important to know as to feel.” I go on to entice them to explore freely with their senses, searching for all the colors of the rainbow. We finish the program with painting the colors, guided by my “color story” of the interplay of light (yellow), water  (blue), and heat (red) in the desert. Most visitors relish this freeing, relaxing opportunity to revisit – or replay- their childhood. A few have stood by and watched. Just one among the hundred or so participants bolted when she saw the painting supplies come out.

Since learning the use of liquid color, applied in the three primary colors as actors in plays of interacting with each other to create a spectrum and sometimes a form, I have shared these enlivening exercises in many venues. A lot of happy people have walked away with their beautiful paintings and light hearts.

What I now believe about the colors brought this way is that it is the vibrant colors themselves, applied across the spectrum, that  charge the chakras of all who use them. I decided this week to paint a rainbow every day for 62 days and see what happens. Today’s painting is the fifth in the series.

When I create these, I feel centered and enlivened, relieved if tension and fretting about my day. I feel whole and nourished all over my body. I notice that certain colors seem to draw me in and beg me to stay with them til a fullness arrives.

Do you have an exercise you can do regularly to balance and energize your whole being? I’d love to hear about it!
