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

Business or Ministry or???

How I structure this “project” of creating a wave of radical forgiveness along the Appalachian Trail corridor is a question I’ve been turning over and over.

Do I give away my services as a coach, freely sharing the energy-shifting tools,  seats at Satori games, places in Circle Ceremonies, trip planning articles and calls, speaking engagements, food preparation lessons, tarp-making instructions? I could ask for donations, or simply rely on the good graces of my benefactors or on The Universe to provide my needs. read more

Reveling in an Experience

I would rather experience something than read or write about it. Describing something that I just did seems to diminish the energy buzz I feel as an activity I enjoyed ends. Maybe that’s why I’m not much of an adventure journal writer. After a  full day’s hike, I want to lie in my sleeping bag and keep feeling the energy coursing in my body. The events and timeline of the day flow together in a tapestry of sensory delights. Reducing them to words seems trite and almost irreverent.
Maybe tomorrow I’ll tell you about it- about walking with 10 other Nature explorers using all of our senses as darkness crept over us and the colors turned to grey.
For now, though, I choose to rest and integrate the tingling thrills of awakening my senses in a physical conversation without words. 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

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.

How Do I Know I’ve Forgiven?

The other day, a client asked me this. My answer: When you can THANK the person you’re forgiving for giving you this opportunity to learn and grow.

What?!!

You’re kidding, right?

No. I’m serious.

I’m also talking about Radical Forgiveness, which calls only for a tiny bit of willingness to be open to the possibility that from a spiritual perspective everything happens for a reason.

Everything?

Yes, everything. We’re talking radical here.

Right.

And we’re talking about even the smallest, tiniest, littlest inkling of willingness to be the slightest bit open to the most minuscule possibility that this could have a remote possibility of healing and purpose from a spiritual perspective. There’s a lot of wiggle room here. read more

Retracing Steps – With Forgiveness this Time

This week I walked a short section of the Appalachian Trail where I had experienced an upset the first time I walked there six years ago. This time, however, I had the tools of Radical Forgiveness with me and instead of upset I had healing and release!

As the Earth passed under my feet, those old emotions surfaced and the memories of being misunderstood, ignored, abandoned and shunned by my hiking partner popped up along with the feelings I had felt at that time.  It amazed me how little I remembered of the trail itself, the terrain, the forest, the route. All the feelings came right back, though!  I could feel them in my body! read more
