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 […]

Dream Creation Series: Part 4: What Makes your Dream happen

SERIES: Dream Creation: From Desire to Embodiment
This article is part 4 in a series of four articles. Part 1 here. Part 2 here.  Part 3 here.
PART 4
What Makes your Dream happen

 

If you believe in overnight success, miracles that will sweep you into fame or things that happen all by themselves, go call Tinker Bell.
(She’ll tell you to bug off and not waste her time.) LOL!
In the previous articles in this series, we already ascertained that wanting is not enough. We proved that Dreaming is not enough. And we established that the only way to manifest that Dream of yours is to eat it; to make it an integral part of you.
We also explored that the next step after you swallow your dream is to chew it, and this means to make a choice:

To commit or not to commit? That is the question!

But what is Commitment?
Imagine commitment as a banquet. What happens when you seat down to dinner?
What follows is the short menu for your Dream Banquet.
 
Identity and fluidity = Your plate
If the food looks too alien, […]

Do you Need to Create a Chrysalis?

Reading Time: 4 minutes

Do you Need to Create a Chrysalis?

I want to share with you the magic of my most recent shamanic performance that took place on Sunday, May 17th in New York.

I just emerged from my ceremonial chrysalis and did a magical Butterfly Dance.

This was an in-depth ceremony for me as well as a shamanic performance and journey for the women in the audience.

I first wrote a poem and then danced it. The poem was a shamanic journey through the process of creating my chrysalis, feeding on it to become my dream and finally emerging as my embodied potential.

“But what is this chrysalis?” you may ask.
In nature, the chrysalis is the new skin that the caterpillar builds in order to nurture and protect its transformation into butterfly.
The Sacred Feminine School of Wisdom teaches us that women also need to create a chrysalis to nurture and protect our transformation. Throughout time, there have been different ceremonies, rites or special places for women to do this, from the Moon Lodge to the Red Tent.
If you are right now undergoing a change —or even […]

Dream Creation Series: Part 3: Become your Dream

Reading Time: 4 minutes

SERIES: Dream Creation: From Desire to Embodiment
This article is part 3 in a series of four articles. Part 1 here. Part 2 here.
PART 3
Become  your Dream

 

So you finally stopped seeing your Dream or purpose as something alien that is far away and that you must “get” with great effort. Congratulations! You accepted your Dream as food.
You also swallowed your Dream, allowing it to nurture the potential inside you that has —and has always had— the power to blossom into that Dream.
Now you need to ingest and digest your Dream.
The previous two stages: acceptance and swallowing were lead by your Sacred Feminine aspect or your Shakti Energy. Now we are shifting into your Sacred Masculine energy, your Shiva Energy.
You do not create something because you want it.
Desire is just the spark to ignite your passion, a powerful force that can move mountains. Yes, but only if you employ it.

Now you must choose whether you will feed your passion to that Dream until it grows.

Believe it or not, must people refuse to feed their passion to their Dream. Instead, they […]

Dream Creation Series: Part 2: How to Eat your Dream

Reading Time: 4 minutes

SERIES: Dream Creation: From Desire to Embodiment
This article is part 2 in a series of four articles. Part 1 here.
PART 2
How to eat your Dream

 

If wanting is not enough…
If Dreaming is not enough…
… then what is?
In Part 1 of this series I said that we need to “eat our dreams.”
How do we do this?
When we eat, we smell, taste, chew, swallow, ingest and digest the food. It then flows through our organs and systems, becoming our energy and our body. We ultimately are what we eat.
Receive the Food
To eat your Dream is to stop seeing them as something “out there” that is far away, unreachable and even alien to who you are now.
As long as you see your Dream like that, you will not be able to manifest it simply because your Reticular Activating System will reject it. The amygdala sounds all alarms when something clashes against your identity. It won’t let it in!
Your energy system rises up to resist it and your fight or flee mechanism is triggered.

Identity threat is one of the core reasons why most people […]

Dream Creation Series: Part 1: To Dream is not enough

PART 1
To Dream is not Enough
 
Today is tough love day here.

It simply breaks my Warrioress’ heart when I see so many of you longing, struggling and hungering for your Dreams or purpose… and then judging and shaming yourself because you are not embodying it yet.*
I often talk about the process of creating and manifesting —and I usually start from the inside out —because that’s how wings are grown. In my experience, without the intentional, emotional and energetic processes that I call Internal Actions— even if you take action, it will be ineffective.
But today I want to focus on something else. I want to reveal to you the force that is probably swallowing your Dream right now. This influence devours the Dreams of millions of people. About 95% of those who are not creating their Dream right now are in the grip of this monstrous force.
Here’s the raw true:
It is not enough to want.
You may want something with all your heart. You may want it so bad it hurts.
But that won’t make it happen.
