Because I Am White, It Is My Business to Speak Up

Today's SPARK emerges from the darkness of the white supremacy rally in Charlottesville.

I have been letting my heart feel and my mind reel in the tragic reality that unfolded this weekend as white supremacists spewed hatred and incited violence that led to death and injury of human beings.

As a white woman I have a responsibility to act rather than be passive, to speak up rather than stay silent. I've been talking through the emotions with friends, reading more about systemic societal isms...

Valuing Yourself Enough to Make Your Dream Real

Today's SPARK is here to inspire you to value yourself enough to make your dream real.

Take a moment to ask yourself:

* Am I telling myself I'm not good enough to make my dream a reality?

* Am I telling myself it is too indulgent to go after my dream rather than tending to everyone else's needs? 

* Am I afraid of how others might judge me if I go after my dream? 

* Am I spending too much time on things that drain me instead of putting that energy towards the joy of creating my...

Your Road Less Traveled

Today's SPARK is here to say that sometimes the road less traveled is the only road that will set you free.

I remember emerging from 4 years of graduate training in Counseling & Expressive Arts Therapy back in 2007, only to realize that there was not a single job posting that would let me be fully me. None of the mental health positions listed would offer me the freedom I craved to really show up and offer my natural gifts fully.

So I took the road less traveled, pioneering my own way...

Does Your Work Turn You on...or Off?

Today's Spark is here to let sparks fly between you and your work! It's here to tap into your sexual energy and reclaim it as a vital force for good in the soul-satisfying work you are meant to do.

Let's focus in on Sexual Energy for today as that is often not...

Today's SPARK asks you to honestly answer this question:
Are you repressing your greatest work?

Before you answer this question let's take a look at the word 'repress'...

So when we're talking about repressing your 'greatest work,' we're concerned that you are holding back the unique contribution you're meant to make in the world. We're wondering if you're suppressing the work that satisfies your soul. We're questioning if you're bottling up the work you were born to do. We're checking to...

Feel Your FIERCE

Today's SPARK inspires your soul-satisfying work to be both good for you AND good for our global community. It comes from my own dormant fierceness that is beginning to stir.

Marianne Williamson, speaking passionately to us at the "Our Love is Our Power" Summit in Asheville last weekend, delivered a sobering and compelling call to action.

She reminded us that all thriving species have fierce females who protect and ensure the survival of the pack or community. She called upon Women to tap...

Today's Spark gives loving attention to your relationship with Money. After all, if you're on the path of making money by being bravely yourself--your relationship with money is key.
