A New Tribe for a New Story: The Story Magic Tribe

Tribal News!
A New Tribe for a New Story:
The Story Magic Tribe
Are you in my tribe of spiritual creative women who want to play for their transformation?
In this tribe, we employ our creativity to joyfully manifest our dream, embody our purpose, share our gifts with the world and live our brilliance!
If you are one of these women and you have not joined my tribe…
…go do it now and enjoy an anthology of shamanic stories, including shamanic insights from each story that will open your mind and heart. Here’s the link.
If you are already in my tribe, you are in for a new baptism. Some of you have asked me what’s up with the new name?
Here’s the story: for more than a decade, the name of our tribe has been the Magicmark Your Life Tribe because we use our creativity (color markers being a good symbol for it) to change our lives.
But as I developed new ways to do just that, I realized that the thing that ignites our hearts is story. Whether it is hearing someone tell a […]

Shifting from Fear to Faith in the Midst of Adversity

Shifting from Fear to Faith
in the Midst of Adversity
In a private FB group to which I belong I was deeply moved by a woman going through so many problems compiled by environmental disasters and tipped by the troublesome political climate to the point that –even when she had great faith, a faith I could feel deep in her core—she was feeling desperate, fragmented and gripped by fear for herself, her family and her community.
Let us call her Mary.
If you are going through multiple problems while feeling the pressure of these scary, troubled times getting to you so that you are losing your center of serenity, this is for you with love.
~~~~
Beautiful Mary, I feel the fear in you and I feel the faith in you. I send a prayer for you to shift from fear to faith with ease and grace.
As I hear you describing what is going on in your life –the adversity, disease, financial insecurity, compiled with environmental disasters in your region and overwhelming political transgressions to our democracy, I see a vision…
I’m seeing the adversity you describe. […]

Valentine Gift-The Courage to Love

Valentine Gift
The Courage to Love

What is your love story?
Are you overflowing with love in your life, romantic as well as friendship love? Are you in love? Out of love? Grieving a break-up? Have you given up in love or are you heartbroken?
Whatever your love story is, you will infuse it with magic and inspiration in this short video love letter that is my gift to you this Valentine.
So often Valentine messages are only for those who have a partner, but love exists beyond the meeting with the beloved. It expands us beyond the relationship. It does not go when the beloved departs.
Therefore, this Valentine message is for you no matter what your love story is, if you are in a relationship, alone, going through a breakup, grieving a love relationship or hiding from love.
This is a love letter to celebrate your capacity to love, to infuse you with the courage to love again and to inspire you to dive into your loss to grow your love (instead of hiding and protecting yourself from loving again.)
Enjoy it and share it […]

Do you hurt for your friend like this?

Is this you?
Do you hurt for your friend like this?
When women repel success
Every few months I meet her and the minute she sees me her eyes light with a paradoxical mix of hope and desperation.
As she walks towards me I ask myself “Will this be the time?”
She barely says hi. She dives into a stream of complaints. You know that string. That’s how your friend goes on and on about what she really, really wants to do instead of the boring or grueling job she now has.
You hear it every time you gals meet. You try to help her, but any suggestion you give is met with a “Yes, but…”
After a while you get it that she is resisting to take any action on her own behalf, so all you can do is seat there patiently, listening to the streams of complains, wishes and dreams that you know will never happen.
You listen because you love your friend. But for that same reason, it hurts like hell and you go home with a broken heart.
If that has happened to you, then […]

Are you Feeling Alone and Abandoned?

Story Alchemy
Are you Feeling Alone and Abandoned?
One of the complains that I have been hearing from your feedback is the feeling that you are alone and unsupported. There is a sense of isolation ~even when you are surrounded by people. This is debilitating and makes you feel abandoned just when you need more support than ever.

This feeling if often masked by the excitement of festivities, but just about now, as you come down from the Holiday high, it is making you feel tired, weighed-down and even more alone than ever.

I’ve been there. I know that it is of little consolation to know that you are not alone in your aloneness, but today I offer you something more than sympathy or empathy.

I invite you into a journey of Story Alchemy, a path of storytelling that empowers you to shift from that aloneness into alignment with your beautiful, radiant Sacred Self.

If you have not read about Story Alchemy before, here it is in a nutshell:

Humans explain our world and our role in that world through the creation of  story segments called Story […]

Naysayers, Haters, Mirrors and Messengers

Naysayers, Haters, Mirrors and Messengers
The other day I was watching a video by Jeff Walker. I love this person! He shines with authenticity and love, and he says it as it is. You can watch the video here.
I warn you that this is a long post, but if you offer or want to offer your gifts to the world, or if you have been held back by the fear of criticism, I promise that it is worth your while to read.
I agree with Jeff that one of the things that is holding many of us back is the fear of being rejected, judged, criticized and even “crucified” by others; especially by our loved ones ~but also by influential people or large groups.
That fear of criticism is like a barb-wire fence that blocks many paths to success, especially among women and Spiritual Creatives.
We all have been the victims of that horrific infestation: Gossip. We know what that does. It spreads like toxic gas even before you get to a place, and when you enter everyone is looking at you […]
