When Life Dictates Simplicity


This last Sunday I went to bed with a massive headache.  I woke up Monday morning with the headache and vertigo.  I cleared my calendar for the day.  As I was lying in bed I thought about Simplicity.

How can I be effective in my business when I’m knocked out?
It wasn’t possible to focus on much when I was lying in bed except for rest, sleep and hydration.

How can I focus on what is important AND take care of myself and my well being?  Simplify and pare down to the essentials.

1)  To simplify means saying No.

We have a finite amount of energy during the day.  Marianne Williamson has finite amount of energy for the day.  You and I do too.  How do you spend your energy?  When I was in bed it was clear that teaching yoga was out.  I simply didn’t have the physical energy to do so.  What activities fuel you up?  What activities deplete you?

2)  What are my priorities for this day?  This moment?

Lying in bed I was bummed about rearranging my day.  My priorities for Monday had been my clients, my yoga students and my mastermind team.  My health restructured my priorities to me.  100%  Priorities shift and change. Pain has a way of dictating these changes quickly.

3)  What do I need help with?  Can I ask for help?

One of my values is to be in integrity with what I say I’m going to do.  I physically couldn’t teach.  Yoga class was still scheduled.  I reached out to a colleague of mine and class was taken care of.  We all need help.  Who supports you?  Do you feel comfortable asking for help?

Next time life takes you on the expected detour with your health, simplify, simplify, simplify.



Consciously Create 2014 and Let Go of 2013


The New Year is upon us.  It is the time where 2013 has come to her end. All of her offerings given.  Our triumphs, our sorrows, our victories, our defeats.  All moments have value.

As you step into 2014, what are you ready to let go of?  Let go with the dignity and respect for what it had to offer?

Can you say Thank you?  Without you, I wouldn’t be who I am today.

For those of you out there that experienced extreme heartache in 2013, maybe you can’t feel the Thank you.  That’s okay.  A simple acknowledgement can move mountains.  Acknowledgement that you are angry at the year, or sad at the year.

As the year unfolds, she shows us who we are.  How we react to life.  What we enjoy.  What we do not like.  We do not need to embrace everything.  A simple Thank You acknowledgement for the value offered is enough.

As we step into the New Year-2014, a new unfolding, what would you like?

What do you want to experience?

If your mind goes straight to “I don’t want experience that again!”  Ask yourself what would you like to experience?  How do you want to feel?  What do you want to see?  What does your vision sound like?

Conscious creation is a dance between noticing the Do Not Want and the return to what would I like.

The do not want usually sounds anguished with deep emotion.

Can you put equal emphasis on What would I like!

Take a moment to write it down.  Share your vision with trusted loved ones.  Read it out loud.  It’s magical to share.  Have a fulfilling New Year!
