Dreams are a way of knowing what will make you happy

*Daydream meditation-let dreams flow onto your paper, using your non-dominant hand

Do what you love

My deep dreams are peace & stillness. Calm amongst the chaos. Deep breathes taken frequently & stretches with my body. Play. Laughter. Tickles with Littles. Feeling my body in the here & now. Grounded. Whole Complete. Move. I want to have my own chickens & bees. My own fabulous vegetable garden full of yummy things to eat. A flower patch for sitting near to dream & gaze into. A moon garden for sleeping under. A fort for the children to conquer & protect. Smiles & Earth. Outside & open. Surrounded by wonderful smells of vanilla & honey. Beeswax & lilac. Blueberry & strawberry. Heaven scent. Teas for sipping. Wine in a tall glass. Delicate. Sucking the richness of life. Leaving this Earthly body empty. Used up. Emptied out. All dreams exhausted & spent. Fulfilled in their own way. Listening to the thoughts of others. Helping them on their path. Seeing the God in each of them. Holding the hands of my boys  & walking together. Running. Filling our hands with dirt & mud. Learning in the world. Leaning into life full tilt. Exploring. To give the messenger an ear-full to send to the Creator.

What does your ideal day look like?

What parts of the day bring you the most joy & fulfillment?

If money, time people or life was no object right now what would you do, what would you start, where would you go?

What steps would you have to take to make your dream a reality?

If I could I could…

Yup. I got a lot to do. Off I go to see & make my dreams come true!

How about YOU?! What are your deep dreams?

Dreams are straining to be born and realized. Remembered and pursued. Like lovers. Embrace them with your whole heart and give in to the desires of your soul.

What are your dreams?

What do you want?

What if…

Throw out the question of how and just let your mind run wild with daydreams.

Affirmations: My dreams have beauty and value. I will treat them, and myself, like precious jewels. Awed by the power my fantasies hold.

I turn my dreams into reality and even if I don’t, there is value in dreaming

What are you waiting for?!

Dreams. Delicious dreams.

 Ones that linger in the mind upon waking. Those that keep you up at night.

Thank you Visually Oriented for finding these wonderful quotes!!

“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.

Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something.

So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.
Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it.

_Make your mistakes, next year and forever.” _

― Neil Gaiman

“I like the scars because I like the stories. Bravery, stupidity, pain —

none of them come free.” – Jessica Martinez

“It’s important to wake up everyday and remind yourself what you’re

working towards. You create your own life, it’s not set out there for

you.” – Shay Mitchell

“Perhaps somewhere, someplace deep inside your being, you have

undergone important changes while you were sad.” – Rainer Maria Rilke

“When the time comes for you to make a change, to grow, to do your life

in a different way, the universe will make you so uncomfortable, so

unhappy, you will eventually have no choice. If you insist on staying

in a place you no longer belong in, if you do not grow the courage to

do what is necessary to propel yourself forward, you will suffer the

consequences, whatever they may be.” – Iyanla Vanzant

“This is a new year. A new beginning. And things will change.”

― Taylor Swift

“Tomorrow, is the first blank page of a 365 page book. Write a good one.”

― Brad Paisley

“We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words

on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first

chapter is New Year’s Day.” ― Edith Lovejoy Pierce

Sending you in 2015

Sparkle Elephant

I am sending you…

Sunshine  ribbons of warm light

Wind whispers-listen closely

Adventure Owls reminding you to always believe in yourself

Spider webs to remind you of spontaneity and the joyful feeling that comes with finishing well what you start

Sunsets ablaze showing you how to see & protect what you believe in

Star gazing so you will always know where you are and may gently lead the way

Moon beams to help you celebrate you-true and pure love.

I wish for you…

to be lit from within by living intentionally. Don’t just let life happen to you. Make goals and then make them happen..

to clean & simplify

to create your space by feeling like you belong inside of your skin and inside of your life. That sense of belonging is essential. Do the work that gets you there, let go of the things that don’t.

to listen to your body and your inner-self and give you what you need. Even when it’s telling you what you don’t want to hear, listen anyway.

to discover exactly what you need to be healthy in mind, body, and spirit and then let it into your life.

to love things with passion. Delight in the little things. It’s the little moments that make up the bulk of our lives. Don’t overlook them, don’t cease to appreciate them
to give.

to receive an abundance of love, friendship, and support. Those things a happy life make. Seek out those things, even if it’s only from yourself.

to be flawed and know that you are worth loving and being cherished for exactly who you are. Let me repeat: You are worth loving.

to be nothing but yourself. love yourself. Deeply, completely, and unconditionally. If you strive for anything this year, strive for that.

to begin again, each time fearless

I am a highly sensitive person. I am the woman who gets overwhelmed by too much noise, too much stuff, too many beings in one space. I am the one who wants to cry but the tears get stuck when life feels overwhelming. The one who feels so much and it sits in her neck and shoulders as tension and pain. The one whose body attacks the brain to attempt to deal with the onslaught of everything. The one who frequently longs to crawl out of her skin if only to be free of one sensation. Who is startled by a touch from another because she thinks an impenetrable, protective bubble surrounds her. When it is breeched (even though it truly doesn’t exist) it feels like an invasion and is startling, unnerving and shocking. A look of surprise shows clearly on her face. She wants touches, when asked for, to be lingering. Leaving a warm spot when gone. Gently placed on your arm. Hold of her hand. A long embrace.

I am the owner of this once-in-a-lifetime body. I am daily friendly and loving towards it from the food I ingest to the words I say. From the things I choose to filter out. I bring too much in frequently and feel the hangover for a long time.

I am a puzzle. Each piece uniquely fitted to me. I am authentically me, each and every moment. No one else is exactly like me. I can quit the comparison game. Others are not me. I am me and I am more than ok, I am enough, love and loved. I am a celestial being wrapped up in soft, warm skin. I am covered in hair and love.

By celebrating my uniqueness it allows others to see and celebrate theirs. We are each here on this lovely planet for a purpose, for a reason. We each matter. We are each fun, amazing, challenged, and flawed. We support each other by embracing one another in times of challenge and times of happiness. Please share this embrace and tell us your story.

I am a highly sensitive person, a consumer & creator, a leader and a mother.

I will Rise.

Who are you?


I AM Leader

 I AM Leader

walking on beach

From Lily

I am a leader. Leading by imperfect example. Questioning everything. Going against the grain and flow. I am the one ahead of her time. Pushing the boundaries. Exhausted by the whole situation by the time others catch up.

The leader who wants everyone to find their own path. To help them along THEIR way. I lead so others may be enlightened and encouraged to follow their own path.

I can be that person for you.

I am lonely as a leader. I long for a co-leader to boost me up when I stumble. Who hears me when I cry. Someone who makes me feel more than rather than less so. I am embracing my aloneness. The solidarity. The silence. Living the questions.

I need to be that person for you.
