If You Block It, It Will Not Exist

Today's SPARK asks you to give the world your unique expression.

This Martha Graham quote has been one of my favorites for years. Every time I read it, it wakes me up all over again. Today I'll let it work its magic on you.

When you think back on this day...

Reflect on everything that came into the world through you today--through your actions, your words, your creativity, your state of being.

Relish in one shining moment where you really let your uniqueness be expressed.

Name one stifling...

Unleash the Work You Are Designed to Do

Today's SPARK comes to light a fire in you on a day that is deeply infused with courage, liberation, and making dreams real.

I began the day watching "I Have a Dream" with my 3-year old son. We talked about MLK Jr. and freedom, respect, and love for all people. He asked questions like: Did people not feel Free?

Come Out of Hiding and Show Us Who You Are

How are you hiding parts of who you are? Do you know that coming out of hiding is an essential step of doing your purposeful work.

In kindergarten, when I accidentally wrote with pen in my teacher's book, I felt--what I now know as--shame. "I am a bad girl who did something wrong" I thought.

Love Your Dark Places & Let Your Shadow Play

Today, I encourage you to let your Shadow come into the light.

Right now, with all that is swirling in our collective experience of life, our Shadows are active. You can look the other way, deny they are related to you, cast them onto someone or something else. OR, you can look them lovingly in the eye, let them play in the light of your awareness, and see how they can add to our conscious beauty rather than our reactive darkness.
