NOW…right now The Butterfly Flies Because NOW is the time NOT YESTERDAY OR TOMORROW NOW is the time for the Butterfly to Fly Advertisements
Moving through the year, month to month, blog to Facebook LIVE, the seasons and the emotions change. I do love butterflies, and I do love them because they are the perfect example of transformation. They do not have a long lifespan, and in that regard we do differ. And there are times throughout our lives when we go through transformations on a periodic basis. It does not just happen once. We are human beings, we do make mistakes, and we do make adjustments in our thoughts and our feelings when we are making a course correction, a transformation. This month on our LIVE program and on the blog we have spent some time on emotions during what just happened to be a highly emotional time. Emotions and feelings have a lot to do with money. Emotions and feelings are often the companions of pain, and money can lead to painful moments in our lives. Transformation will be March’s area of focus for me. March is a transformative season leading into Spring, a season of hope and renewal. And the butterflies will be with us… firstname.lastname@example.org
Welcome to my world in 2019…I have recently declared it as a time to move forward…leaving everything behind up to this past weekend…the sorrows, the disappointments, the hurts, the unnerving moments. But I will take with me my time as a caterpillar, learning, working to know my mission, and how to move forward. God has provided me from my time of conception a mission and then throughout life a passion to accomplish that mission: be a teacher in the world of money energy. Everything I have done in life was an education in faith, money, energy, and the Universe. Empower Excellence is an established business in which my personal and professional life have melded together. It is a spiritual life based on the Catholic upbringing and embellished through many years of Unity principles, and spiced up through the Unitarian Universalist and United Church of Christ. One minister friend once told me that I have a passport for every church that speaks to me. My focus now is to regain my joy, for joy is the key to everything. It is the joy we find through all of the feelings and emotions as well as in every creation of the Universe. Recently, I began counseling to help move me forward from an experience that has been far worse than a divorce. I am not interested in visiting my childhood, my marriage, the raising of my children, or the estrangement that I am experiencing. I want to move forward. I want to get my joy back. In my session with my counselor, I stated that I want to move forward. Period. I want to get my joy back. This is the first time in my life that pulling joy up from my soul and my heart and my mind has been difficult. I have articulated how I feel in writing in my journal, with close friends, and with a sibling, but the joy is still elusive. In January, this stressful feeling manifested itself in its usual place: my face totally erupted. And it was here as a prime example that I once again realized that our world’s chemical solutions, be it topical solutions, expensive cosmetic solutions, or prescription medicines are not for me. The face exploded with one friend’s “professional dermatological solution”. Going to pure and natural solutions with the guidance of a spiritual and ecologically knowledgeable friend who is also a professional in essential oils, aromatherapy, and more, my face cleared in a week. It was a Thank You, God moment. It was a moment to return to nature and a spiritual solution! And I must add that my mind is always cognizant of the relationship money has with what is happening throughout our lives. The cost of the counselor, the cost of the commercial dermatology products, and the cost of the natural products as I am not a professional growing and tracking natural solutions. But self care is an investment that, when it is effective, not only cures the body but also cures the mind and the soul and the heart. A worthwhile investment indeed. All of this work led to a totally unique situation where in the middle of the night 24 hours ago I was awakened very ill: cold sweats and extreme nausea. All kinds of things went through my head for about an hour as I stationed myself in the bathroom. I eventually went back to bed and back to sleep for about 4 hours. I awakened feeling pretty normal. What was this? Was it food poisoning? Was it the flu? No, upon further learning yesterday in person and on the internet, this was a Spiritual Awakening through Physical Detoxification. The energy to move forward, along with an astrological situation had built so much in the last several months that my body was ready to purge. It was the time for the caterpillar to shed its cocoon; it was time for my wings to be ready. And this transformation was already showing itself physically with deeper than normal sleep and for the first time in years, as a Type II diabetic, a blood sugar reading totally in the normal “non diabetic” range. This is just the beginning. This is what joy is all about!
Happiness comes from within, from Source. A Legacy comes from within, from Source. It seems Source is our Source!
All of these actions are integral and great…BUT There are more “ingredients “ still unknown to you; only known to your God. Your life path depends on you, but only God knows the total plan, and the only one who knows the next “ingredient “ to be introduced. So, no matter where you are at […]
The older one gets, the more times relationships of all kinds come to an end, gradually or suddenly. Emotions run the gamut: relief, outrage, love, grief, remorse, and more. Time can ease any pain, but moving on can be long term; UNLESS… You react to the end with a KISS GOODBYE! Could you really do […]
2019…a year to consciously think about and plan your Legacy—your life plan and your plan for life once you transition — your memory of your life for your loved ones moving into the future. Living this year, moment by moment, day by day, is to enjoy the good and the bad since we cannot control […]
Money choices are always yours, and they are too many to delineate here, BUT… Here is an easy formula for starting your day with your money: AWAKEN to what you want to accomplish with your money just for today! Then NURTURE yourself and your money to accomplish that desire! ACCEPT that you must not only express your intention but then you must act on it, if only for today! OR, you can DENY DENY DENY the intention and keep on moving backward with money in your life. It is your choice, THE ANSWER IS WITHIN YOU! email@example.com
Today is really about appreciation and gratitude, and they are different, about breathing… A sibling has been faced with some health problems this week related to breathing. The official word today is that she will be fine with some good healing and future self care, but it was a good outcome all about breathing! That was all about exhaling the past for her. Another sister is waiting and inhaling the future as she is about to become a grandmother for the second time in the coming weeks, and she is so happy. A new life allowing the future to be so bright…and everyone will breathe better when the baby arrives. Everyone breathes better when a new baby enters the world! But there are also a few of us holding our breath today as well…one sister’s bedroom ceiling sprung a leak on her early this morning. She is fine, ceiling is not. I learned today that my manufactured floor which has been heaving and weeping for a few days has the potential to be a much bigger problem. In both cases, these are in the future problems of the property owners, and for that I am grateful. These are past problems which we can exhale while we inhale the future waiting for fantastic solutions. Breathing…inhaling and exhaling are all good…we just have to remember to breathe through it all! firstname.lastname@example.org
This blog is dedicated to the women in my life on Galentine’s Day, February 13th, the celebrating of female friendships the day before the world becomes clogged with Valentine’s Day. For years, Valentine’s Day was big with sweethearts, spouse, and then children, and now grandchildren! Yes, it goes out to sisters by birth and sisters by choice: Joyce, Marge, Beth, Jane, Vicki, Kass, Mary Jane, Jessica, and more. But it also is the time to celebrate with the more than 70 women across Northeast Ohio who are part of my professional sisterhood and passion through my four, soon to be five, Northeast Ohio Professional Women’s Connection groups. For these are the women I have grown to know and love over more than five years. I salute each and every one of you today and every day… Many years ago, I had to learn how to network as I was thrown into the public sector in various government positions, and I took to it quite naturally as an extroverted introvert! I actually taught a course at a local community college on the book HOW TO WORK A ROOM… But since then through the formation of a number of nonprofits in a leadership position, I have continued the networking, and five years ago, I was asked to take on the decade old group which became Professional Women’s Connection West (Cuyahoga County, Ohio, and grew to Professional Women’s Connection East (Lake County, Ohio) and then Professional Women’s Connection Lorain County. Now, we are ready with Professional Women’s Connection Medina County. I am a unique being, and I have learned what to do that is best for me–a God given mandate. As a result of that, the networking groups’ members are all unique and high energy in their own respective ways. There is no competition, only collaboration, through protected industry categories. They each learn to like and then build relationships of trust with each other. They become each others’ sales forces. Most succeed; some who do not make an investment in this business tool do not. The energy of each woman reflects my major life passion: Energy, Money Energy, and being real! It is integrity and authenticity…. I am unafraid to say that I have a gift for brining women together in networking…I have been given a gift, and it is good for me and for all who allow it to be a gift to them. Not every woman is ready, but, if they are, I love the opportunity to help them grow their businesses through really professional networking. Growth continues into Summit County, Ohio in the fall and potentially Geauga County, Ohio in 2020. so for all…Happy Galentine’s Day…may our paths continue on the road to success and love, my sisters, one and all! email@example.com
