May I Remember
May I remember my Divinity.
May I remember the Greatness
from which I was born,
an infinite unfolding
wrapped inside my tiny body, my tine self.
Like the ocean inside the drop,
the sun inside a grain of corn,
the massive tree inside the tiny seed.
May I own my Greatness.
May I return to my Divinity.
May I assume the power and devotion
of my purpose:
to shape the face of humanity
through my own unfolding.

The Search for Greatness
She longed for it as she longed for the next breath.
But when she attempted to walk towards it,
she felt like a little girl inside mama’s big high heels.
Yet, how alive she felt
as she gave each wobbly step!
Yes, she was scared.
She often thought “I must be crazy!”
After all, must people around her thought
that she had lost her mind reaching so high.
What if they were right?
She carried a huge, heavy bag of doubts.
It had was torn at the bottom,
so that at every turn, on every big move
a stream of doubts escaped
and threatened to drown her.
They muffled her voice.
They made her slip and fall.
They pushed her into dark places.
At these times she had to stop
and mend the seams of her bag,
hunt down the scattered doubts
and dump them back into the bag.
The labor was grueling.
It slowed her down.
It made her wonder if
she would ever get there…
To that place of Greatness.
And one day like every other day
she woke up with the clear realization
that she was that Greatness.
That she had been born into it.
That she was made from it.
That it unequivocally [...]
Meet your Sacred Self
We are born with an umbilical cord connected to our Birth Mother. We all know this.
What many of us do not know or forget is that we are also born with an energy cord connecting us to The Field.
You can see The Field as the Field of Infinite Possibilities, The Unifying Field or simply as Oneness. Or you can choose to see it as The Divine.
We have an energy cord to Oneness because we are born from that Greatness and that infinite unfolding into a tiny body, a particular culture and a historical moment.
As soon as we are born these three elements begin to interact, dressing our infinite self in the colors, textures and shapes of our environment.
At this point in our growth our true nature as infinite unfolding energy being begins to fade away from our consciousness and we can only see as Self the dress we have been wearing. Our sense of self shrinks to fit the stories we have learned.
You can probably remember a time when you were facing a limitation and a well-intentioned [...]
Where are you stuck?
You know where you are stuck because that is the place where all your “yes, butses,” “Whatifses” and excuses wrestle each other into an entanglement.
You know because it is sticky.
It’s like a mouse trap. You can’t get out of it without skinning yourself alive, and who wants to do that?
But here’s another way to see this.
The Knot is the place where your Great Fear weaves its threads of entanglement —like Spider’s web— to trap your flight.
If you’ve ever have to free a pet from a mouse trap, you know the way out of stuck.
The way out of the sticky place is anointment.
You anoint yourself with oil and that allows you to slip away, open your wings and fly free.
What is the anointment? What is this oil?
Anointment is the act of looking at your Great Fear on the face, picking it up with tender compassion, examining it closely to feel what it is made of, and then release it.
The oil for this ceremony is the catalyst agent that allows you to release your Great Fear.
And that alchemical [...]
Know your Great Give-away
Every great endeavor requires great risks.
If you are on the way with a great undertaking —a life purpose, higher goal or project— that is extraordinary, this goal often feels larger than you. You can’t see how it will be fulfilled. You don’t know how it will come to pass. If you are undertaking such endeavor, you are by choice a great risk-taker.
That is why most people only formulate “doable” goals —that is, goals that they know they can do because they already know how to do them. They feel safe. They can see the entire landscape at a glance. They know what to do. This keeps them in their Comfort Zone. If they take risks, they are measured risks that do not threaten great loss.
Though these ordinary goals are necessary and good, if that is all you do, then you are stealing your possibilities from yourself. You are wearing blinders. For your greatest vision, your life purpose and your brightest potential are bare glimpses to your logical mind.
An extraordinary goal is very different. It is often seen [...]
Tool of the Month for you:
Tool to: Change your Story, Change your Life
Here’s the Tool of the Month I’ve create for you.
Do you feel that there’s some invisible limit, like an invisible wall or a blind spot that’s blocking your progress or manifestation?
Do you feel that you are caught in a loop, that you are able to get so much done, grow so far or get that close to your Dream or purpose… and then something pulls you back into the loop and you are spinning again in an old familiar place?
The reason for this is that you are trapped in a life story that was either written for you early on or you’ve written it probably subconsciously, an you are not playing out that story in your life.
You are a trapped in a role within that story. To change your life past a certain set point, you need to change your story.
And that’s the latest tool I’ve developed for you. It’s called:
This alchemical process combines storytelling, tapping and an alchemical process that changes your Energy Broadcast [...]
The beastly tow
behind the speeding car,
while the car is already
Results: System collapse
The inexperienced bird
launching into the abyss
while the feathered veteran
glides effortlessly in the wind.
Results: The school of hard knocks
Some get used to struggle
and think there is no other way.
They see those who have mastered Grace
and spit out a derision:
“Free riders! Lazy bums!
Piggy-bagging on my efforts!”
The pushers and strugglers rarely learn
that what they seek in velocity and effort
can only succeed on the Still Point.
Would they enter the eye of the storm
they would ride freely
above continents of sorrow
They would land in the Promised Land
in the blink of an eye.

This is a very special story that I write with all my heart for our male subscribers. I want to say thanks for graciously receiving stories and articles that are focused on women and the female psyche, that feature a “she” and rarely a “he.” As you know, I serve women. But so many guys find value in these articles, and many more keep subscribing! I commend you for being wise enough to extract the value that all humans can use from my writing. And for that wisdom and patience, I have written this story especially for you. I hope that you enjoy it.
Three Boys at the Top of the Hill
I saw three boys at the top of the hill, scooters ready for the challenge. They were so excited!
“This is going to be great!” They cheered.
The boy in the red shirt was all readiness, his muscles warm-up to the task, his attention focused at the bottom of the hill.
“Are you ready?” he asked the other boys.
The boy in the purple shirt said yes unthinkingly while fidgeting with the hem [...]
What Dogs say about their Human Pets
When I’m in Central Park it’s inevitable to find myself observing the antiques of dogs and their human pets. I’ve observed that there are 5 types of Dog-Human Partnerships. I’ve also noticed that these styles of interacting reveals more about the human than the dog… much more than appears at first glance.
There are humans who take great care of their dogs. They groom and clean them, feed and pamper them and they walk them proudly at their side. They let the world know their pedigree through their dogs. I suspect that they may do the same with their family, friends and possessions. These dogs look great: strong, beautiful and proud. Are they happy? That’s an entirely different manner. What I’ve observed is that they, as their human pets, don’t actually play. They parade.
There are humans who have a genuine conversation and relationship with their dogs. The dog is another member of the family. Perhaps they’ve learned dog language through dog training— but I feel it’s more than that. These humans are receptive [...]
Seven Steps to Handle Procrastination
When you find yourself procrastinating something that you are inevitably bound to do (like laundry, marketing your business or writing your book), remember this:
The actual action is never as bad.
It will not be as hard as you are making it to be while you are engaging in procrastinating.
It never takes as long as you make it to take in your dread-creating mental scenarios.
It will not feel as bad as you are making it to be now; and if it does, there’s a reason you must do it and not doing it is making you feel TWICE that bad, so get it over with!
Here’s a process that helps:
Remind yourself that procrastination magnifies the negative and multiplies the dread, prolonging the pain. Repeat the three statements above. In other words, face the fact that you are really making it worse than it truly is.
Accept the emotions that you want to avoid. Does this scare you? Does it stresses you out? Does it place you face-to-face with an old, dreaded conflict? Accept it. Accept your feelings [...]
