Today, I emerge from improvising on stage last Saturday night in the middle of (singer-songwriter) David Wilcox's concert! Even more, it arises from the fact I almost said 'No' to this opportunity because of the Fear that I don't have what it takes...
Last week you heard how my dream was coming true as I packed my bags to be a Presenter at David Wilcox's Retreat. You can read the back story here.
After my 2-hour presentation on the first day, I was prepared to kick-back and relax when...
Today's SPARK comes in the 'HOW' ... of how one of my dreams is coming true today. Let's spark your own HOW and move toward making your inspired vision a reality.
Today I am heading out to be a Presenter (and whole-hearted participant) at a Retreat led by Singer Songwriter, David Wilcox.
Now this is definitely Dreamy, and a bit surreal, because my love for David and his music has been growing for 20 years-- back when his songs played the...
Today's inspiration comes in the form of a conversation with my 3-year old boy...
"I had a boring day at school, Mama."
"Hmmmm, I'm curious about that," I say.
"I don't believe that a day can be boring. But I do believe that You can Choose to feel bored."
"What did you say, Mama?"
"I said, You are the one who chooses if you're going to enjoy a moment or if you are going to feel bored. You get to choose if you're going to feel bored or create some fun."
"Do you choose to be bored, Mama?" he...
This is a gift I made for the Creative Entrepreneur within you. I know not all of you have your own business. But I do believe that all of you have creative visions, dreams, and projects living within that are in various stages of gestation, hatching, and fruition.
Yes, if you're drawn to SPARK, it's likely that you do have a creative entrepreneurial spirit. I dedicate this gift to the dormant, budding, rising, or fully expressed Creative Entrepreneur that you are.
I have high hopes...
Today, I offer several snapshots of recent peak experiences. Each snapshot leads to a question for you--may it Spark your next peak experience...
The Ease of Leadership
I started the year leading The SHINE Expansive. Forty-five courageous individuals experienced the SPARK Process of Liberating Your True Self in this 30 Day Virtual Program. As it was my 2nd time leading the journey, I had the opportunity to experience EASE while leading.
In the midst of Ease, a Fear arose that said: What if...
What would it be like to let your Truest Self bravely shine, even in the Spotlight?
This month I’ve walked into new uncharted territory on the Cover of Mogul Muse Magazine.
I’ve been soaking in the experience of this new terrain of visibility. What I find deeply satisfying is that I am now able to show up in this Spotlight with full authenticity. This has not always been the case.
There have been countless times in my life where I have performed, given presentations,...
I invite you to be still and imagine that right now your Soul, your Essence, your Truest Self, your Heart, is actually calling you toward something, in this very moment. Maybe it's calling you to say Yes or No to something or someone. Maybe it is calling you to take some kind of leap of faith. Maybe it is calling you in a new direction--unchartered territory of sorts. Imagine that you can hear, feel, see or sense your Soul calling you right now. And, if this is a huge stretch for you, play...
How do you free yourself to be yourself?
One simple way is to pay attention to what your heart is calling you toward in a particular moment and practice saying YES to that calling.
Today I invite you to notice any and all inspired inner impulses that whisper, nudge, and call to you throughout the day. I also invite you to notice any little or big ways that you wet blanket these inspired impulses with social conditioning, fears, or other self-limitations.
There are countless...
Inspired by the courage that emerges from risking, I boldly ask...
What are you risking by holding yourself back? By hiding or suppressing or constricting any part of who you are?
What is the risk of giving yourself full permission? Of freeing yourself to be all of who you are?
In this one beautiful life, which risk do you prefer?
I offer you Two Words to guide your day...
Give yourself permission
To say Yes Let's to Life.
Know you are enough
To share your Gifts right now.
Be seen. Be heard.
Yes Let's express.
Center in yourself
To discover all you can give.
Step into unknown
Say Yes Let's to Trust.
Invite in Playful Spirit
Experiments and Risk.
Stretch into Yes Let's.
Without anything to fix.

And definitely inside.
Follow your Impulse.
There's nothing more to hide.
