Two Days ’til Nomadic Lifestyle Begins: Relieving Stress

I have a confession to make about this countdown! I planned in a few days of “cushion” time, knowing that if I used my drop dead final day for leaving for my new job, I’d be in the state I am today on my truly last day!  Well, that was smart!  I had planned to use that cushion taking an extra trip up to the Len Foote Hike Inn, prepared to need the days for unfinished moving business.

As I had suspected, my fictitious penultimate day has me feeling stressed, on the brink of my Stress Syndrome, when I feel nauseous, headachey, cold, and sleepy!  This time, I caught myself slipping into it and addressed it. Instead of eating carbohydrates that I crave, I ate a salad with living sprouts and nutritional yeast (for the B vitamins). I breathed into the day, and did a Radical Forgiveness “Emerge-n-See” process, those 4 magical steps to energy shift. read more

11 Days “til Nomadic Lifestyle Begins: Pictures

I love the family pictures! Those kids were soooo cute! Still, all the photo albums are big and bulky. Do I have time to scan them all? Probably not, but I’m getting started anyway! To my good fortune, my friend, Vanessa, wants to help because she likes being in my little garden apartment space. So, that may be a great trade – ambiance for scanning!

OK! Let’s go this! She’s already gotten started with several dozen scanned photos on the hard drive.

Yes, those kids were sooo cute! read more

12 Days Til Nomadic Lifestyle: Deeper Release

Even a pickup truck is a “small” container for the things I want to keep. Maybe I’m not 100% committed to this Hiking Lifestyle!

That’s true, I admit. And to clarify, I’m calling what I’m creating “nomadic” which means that I can easily move. At this moment, there are still things I want to keep that won’t fit in my backpack!

But I want them “later”. That’s when I’m finished hiking, when I have a small domicile again.

Or, maybe I just like my stuff! read more

14 Days’til Nomadic Lifestyle Begins: Urgency

Fifteen days sounds infinitely longer than fourteen! There’s something about saying “just two weeks more” that makes the unfinished list look endless and the unsorted stuff look mountainous!

It’s time to step into “through-hiker” mode! On the trail, that means get up early and walk past dark, stopping for only short breaks.

I’m thinking that for moving, it might mean “get more help”! I think the main help I could use is this
         1. Feed me!
         2. Help me sell things
         3. Help me schedule the tasks read more

19 Days ’til Nomadic Lifestyle: “Hard”

Twice in the past twelve hours, friends have used the word “hard” to qualify their endeavors. Since that gave ME a charge, I figure that’s something for me to look at. “Hard”, for me, implies a list of judgments like:
“this is not acceptable”
“I don’t like this”
“I’m being forced to do something.”

When I say something is hard, there’s always a resistance to the undertaking. I’m going ahead with something reluctantly, half-heartedly, doing it only because something outside of me says it must be done. read more

24 Days to My Nomadic Life: Momentum

Yesterday was a miracle day! That’s when synchronicities happen that are hard to miss. I want to believe that freeing my body of that “unworthiness” belief created an energetic space for three events:

1. A prospective client called
2. A significant local advertiser invited me to be the featured community sponsor
3. My mentor group nourished me with lavish attention
4. My ideal client responded to an interview request immediately
5. I shared information, tips, and ideas on Facebook and they were gladly received. read more

Sharing from the Heart Continued

What would I share more of if I’m “COMING FROM THE HEART” without worrying if I’m being judged or if I’ll make money at it? Here are some activities I’ll CHOOSE to share more starting today:

  • Stories about walking the Benton MacKaye Trail
  • Satori Games. Playing has been on sabbatical
  • Walks open to others
  • Thirteen Steps to Radical Forgiveness calls

What’s in my way is worrying that I can’t schedule them while I’m out on the trail because I can’t guarantee connectivity. Well, here’s a possibility:  What if the calls happened anyway even if I weren’t there?!!!!!

Here’s to sharing “carelessly”! read more

“Reflections on “Too much to do”

I am cocreating my future.

My waking mind is abuzz with possible activities for the day. I have the privelege of choice because I am blessed with the provision of my basic survival needs. I have shelter, food, love and affection, safety.

I have a blank canvas on which to paint my life. Will I see that as a blessing or a burden? Do I see a vibrant palette of universally beautiful colors or a murky quagmire of ugly obstacles? I get to choose. I can dance. I can slog.

Radical Manifestation Evident

Radical Manifestation Evident

When results of working the stages of Radical Manifestation occur, it’s so important to acknowledge and celebrate them! I’m doing that today.

This week, following on the heels of several weeks of focusing my energy and attention on freeing my financial picture and creating new streams of income, I’ve had TWO results.

  • I received a check in the mail that was TWICE what I had expected
  • My banker presented a reinvestment plan that will yield FIVE TIMES what I had expected.

I celebrate that abundance is multiplying!

I am grateful for the gifts of the Universe!

I acknowledge my co-creation of abundance by clearing my energy and taking action. read more

My Job is to MAKE Peace

October 15, 2019

Andrea Owen, in one of her Monday Kick Ass Quotes, shared the following:

“We can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves.”
-Dalai Lama 

Here’s what she said about this quote:

“Quick reality check: Can’t change anything that’s already happened, so might as well make peace with it. Plus, the fastest way I know how to get happier about anything, is to make peace with it.
You don’t have to love it, or even like it. Just make peace.
Interesting quote today. About making peace. Just make peace.” read more
