Messy Transitions

By | Personal Growth, Self Care | 2 Comments

Today marks the first day that I am officially an “empty nester”. The last of my three children left home yesterday for college. My older two have been gone for a while. (It’s a 10 year age difference between #2 and #3.) Last week we were all together for the first time in 6 years! #2 graduated from the Naval Officer training program and I seized the opportunity to create a mini family reunion around the celebration. My Mom flew…

The Things That Piss You Off (the gift of triggers)

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Success | No Comments

My cell phone rings. It’s my husband. “Your Moms flight has been cancelled. We’re on our way back home”. My reaction is not joy at having more time with my 87+ year old Mom. On the contrary, I’m pissed! I was really looking forward to her leaving. I love my Mom, but for no obvious reason, during the last week of her visit, her very presence had been triggering me. [trig·ger (trĭg′ər) A device used to release or activate a…

Finally! The Baby’s Here!

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Self Care, Success | No Comments

If you’ve been following my journey over the last 8 months or so, you’ll know that I was journeying though what I called “The Void”. I surrendered fully to my Souls journey, letting go of much of what I was doing and how I was doing them and creating space for what was wanting to be birthed next through me. It’s has been a journey that has required: Developing greater levels of courage and trust – in myself and the…

The Power of Language: Finding The “Right” Way To Talk About What You Do

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Success | No Comments

The effective and powerful use of language is an art. The words we use have the power to heal or to harm. One word, one sentence – said with a certain emphasis – can create a sonic boom in someone’s awareness. It can attract or repel. It can open you up or shut you down. It can make the sale or kill it. How many times do we get caught up in trying to say things the “right” way? How many…

The Power of Disappointment

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Success | No Comments

Ever just feel like you’re struggling? You know what you “should” be doing, yet you just can’t seem to muster up the motivation or inspiration to do it? You do just the bare minimum. The things that are already on your schedule. You show up for your commitments, but in the spaces around them, you collapse mindlessly in front of the tv or numb out watching movies on Netflix or Amazon prime. That was me last week. I felt exhausted! I’ve…

The COST of Not Being Present

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Self Care, Success | 4 Comments

  December can be a really joyful time of year, reconnecting with family and friends. Lots of celebrations and parties. It can also be an emotional and stressful time of year. For some, it’s a time of financial stress… Running around buying gifts, entertaining, traveling to visit with family and friends. For some it’s a time of emotional stress. Feeling sad, missing someone you’ve lost this year, (through death or divorce). Or the stress of feeling obligated to go places…

What’s [Self] Love Got To Do With it? [Success]

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Success | No Comments

I spent the first part of my life trying to be anything but myself. I am an empath. That is, I have the ability to powerfully feel other people’s feelings (particularly when they are trying not to feel them themselves). I have an acute sensitivity to, and awareness of, energy – and emotions are energy. I am also clairaudient and clairsentient. Clairaudience (clear hearing) is one of the four metaphysical senses, the others being clairvoyant (clear seeing), clairsentient (clear sensing),…

The Gift of Imperfection

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Success | No Comments

I often say “Business is just another path of Soul growth”. This is because, in my own journey to building 3 successful businesses and having a life I love to wake up to everyday, I have discovered it’s more about who you become in the process. It’s about being who you need to BE. So you can do what you need to DO. And have what you want to HAVE. More than anything, it’s a journey of self acceptance. Learning to love…

Are You Living YOUR Dreams?

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Self Care | 2 Comments

I have been in almost constant motion for the first six months of this year. It’s all been good. As one person commented on my FB thread last week “you are living the dream”. That is true. Most importantly, I am living MY dream. Are you living YOURS? For a good chunk of my earlier life, I was living someone else’s dream. Initially, I was living the dreams my parents had for me (doing ballet and music lessons, going to…

When “Bad” Things Happen To “Good” People

By | Personal Growth, Self Care | 2 Comments

It’s 3:30 am and I am in the midst of final packing and preparations to go to the Be The Change Event in Orlando. I had written my post on Sunday but was inspired to send it as an email that day. At the time I hesitated, thinking “then I’ll have to come up with another one”. (Lol. The scarcity mindset still rears its head at times) Immediately I heard “there is no lack here Helen. You always have plenty…
