I Want to Walk the Appalachian Trail. Now What?

This week, two fabulous, successful people in my life said, “I want to walk the Appalachian Trail.”
Into my head flash the radiant feelings of thanksgiving and amazing accomplishment that I felt when I stood on Springer Mountain to complete my own 2,000 mile walk six years ago. Along with it wash in the memories of the challenges and doubts that clouded that vision as it unfolded. All of it – the joys, the challenges, the ups, and downs, the sunny days and the rainy or snowy days were all part of my Appalachian Trail walk. I assume they would be part of anyone’s walk. So, where does one start after proclaiming, “I want to walk the Appalachian Trail?” read more

My Life is a Satori Game!

So many changes are happening during this transition to Nomadic Lifestyle! I’m grateful for having the words from Satori pop into my head:

“This is a healing dance.”
“I refuse to invest any more energy in my own story.”
“I love myself being in my feelings about this”
Etc.

Seems like my life is a Satori Game!

How about you?

A Radical Moment

I’m in the self-checkout area in Wal-mart. A little girl is screaming. Her mom is livid while feverishly punching buttons, pulling out cash.
Twenty bystanders are holding their breath.
At that moment I shift that world of breathless bystanding, thinking, “I matter. I believe in fulfillment of love in each moment.”

You see, the night before I had let go of the belief, “I don’t matter”, in a Satori game. In addition, all week I  had been distilling my “why” to a fundamental belief in “fulfillment”. Could I act on that right now, in this moment, with these people? In this place? read more

Why I Want to Stay Alive

My brother chose to leave this physical life a few months ago or so it appears. I honor him and accept his choice. Although I don’t know his reasons or what he was trying to leave, it inspires me to discern my own journey through frustration in a miserable marriage.

There I was, feeling trapped in a relationship fraught with criticism, dispassion, emotional abuse, betrayal, loneliness, and boredom. I blamed myself for choosing it. Had I not created it all myself out of my own self-hatred, as I was learning in my Radical Forgiveness training? read more

Nomadic Partner

Among the many questions in my new nomadic life is this one: Do I remain solo?
Ironically, what motivated my wusband to go through with divorce was my partnering with another man in my hikes. Now that I am legally single, however, partnering seems daunting.

In choosing a life partner, there’s potential sharing of big items like a car, a house, phone service,  even bank accounts.
When I married at twenty-five, with a small bank account, no home, no job, and a low-valued car, it was easy to join up with my lover and move into the house he bought and start working on it. We stepped right into those traditional roles of breadwinner and homemaker without thought of financial parity. In the divorce, he would have gladly sent away with the same dependent amount, except that even he had to agree that there was monetary value in my 30 years of childrearing, home remodeling, food prep, and landscaping. read more

The Fantasy

Just suppose that in one month- or just a little bit more- I  have an automated online product that generates my ideal amount.
I’ll start right off with feeling how wonderful it feels to click open the pages that describe it. Pride and joy surge through my body. Connection with my collaborators and technicians reverberates with the smile on my face.
Gratitude for the customers who came through with purchases swells my heart. I am willing to receive.
The simple webpage is beautiful and functional.
The mobile theme really works!
The mobile membership plugin is awesome. Simple really is best!
My tribe responded with amazing clarity and useful feedback. I delivered what they requested/what they want.
All is well.
I am blessed.
I am helpful and purposeful.
I give and receive in joy and value to inspire and generate healthy self-love that multiplies and develops into generous self expression and sharing for my customers.
This is the true spirit of my work and I’m so glad to be doing my real job! read more

Satori Dreams

image

I played Satori, the Radical Forgiveness board game today. This game brought up for healing and release my fear of being out in the world with my dream of enticing others to connect with Nature and with our true nature of being spiritual beings having a human experience.

All of the beliefs and blocks that I chose lead me to really feel that I keep myself hidden in self doubt and afraid to express my passion for my God-given vocation.

In the game, I was inspired to radically forgive my “wasband” (isn’t that a more loving word than “ex-husband”?) AND to love myself feeling jealous of another coach. read more

Open to learning

In nomadic lifestyle, smartphone will be my office. I love myself being unskilled and resistant to embracing and  mastering the technology of this device.
