AWW is Transformation as Beautiful as Lake Erie Beachglass!

AWW Ageless Women of Wisdom is moving towards its launch on October 16th…AWW is all about the SHARING of Wisdom across all generations of women. It was a beautiful SHARING when my longtime friend Suzanne who lives along Lake Erie granted me permission to use the photo after posting it on Facebook. Suzanne and I have been friends for 25 years and we are of different generations. We have shared much in previous years, and I really believe we can consider it the SHARING of wisdom. The arrival of this photo on Facebook today was purely synchronistic as today is the day AWW is transitioning from its initial phase of AWE Ageless Women Emerging to AWW which will be sponsoring personal retreats in 2020, and beach glass collected by me over the years will be SHARED with the October 16th Launch event participants. Beach glass is transformation in itself, and that is what AWW is all about. This photograph itself is what AWW is all about–SHARING with other women across generations the wisdom that every woman possesses. Thank you, Suzanne, for SHARING!

Ageless Women of Wonder soon to appear just like Beach Glass!

A version of this blog was originally published on June 28 and Source and time were conspiring with me to accomplish what needs to be done, and today that was to help create a logo for AWW Ageless Women of Wisdom, LLC. That has been accomplished…

Building in beach time this year has to become a priority and not necessarily for the sun and water but for the possibility of beach glass to literally flow into my view and my life. I have always been an “awe” walker looking for the moments when something comes into view that makes you stop and whisper “awe”. It could be beach glass as it sparkles in the water and sun and stops me in my tracks as I walk along the local beaches. It is a moment to stop and pick up the sparkling object and sometimes it is not glass but plastic or a leaf or paper. No matter, when I find a gem of glass, if it is significant in my collection, I stop and save it in my little bag I carry for the safekeeping of pieces until I reach home and wash and dry each piece and decide where it will find its temporary home. A view like above becomes reconfigured and displayed as memories of those solitude “awe” walks along the beaches. It is then a little story of where I am now in mind, heart, and soul as I move forward in my life and in my walks. It is all a part of the FLOW I became part of in the billion year story of the Universe. It is a total story of AWE, and I learned a long time ago, I am the heroine of my story as I continue to FLOW. AWE is a sharing of that FLOW unto each person who feels their calling into the walk of “awe” in their universe, and it is the invitation to you to become part of AWE now…

And, today, it is the photo from which the AWW Logo became a reality!

From here, the beach glass will continue to inspire as it took centuries to go from a grain of sand to glass and back to the beaches again…kind of like each of us coming from dust and returning to dust one day. But in the meantime, we shine and sparkle just like a tiny piece of beachglass. You are all an inspiration!

AWEsome Beach Glass… Getting Ready to be Ready!

As Esther Hicks often says, “Getting ready to be ready, to be ready.” And that is what beach glass does. It is also what caterpillars do, I think. Both beach glass and butterflies, two of my favorite things, are part of transformational change on their own personal level. And, in the end, they become the beautiful creations of nature that are dearly collected and loved. We, as humans, are much the same. We start as an embryo, hidden away from even the one who is about to give birth to us. We become infants, helpless but develop into toddlers, teens, young adults, and with our aging we constantly change. It is as we age, if we take the time, we can see the beauty–the beauty of our soul–manifest differently than the beauty of a new born baby. We have spent our whole existence getting ready to be ready to be ready to be ready for the AWEsomeness of maturity and the wisdom that we have accumulated through each stage of life!

BeachGlass & Butterflies…Truly Transformation, but Different!

Beach Glass and Butterflies are Manifestations of Transformation…the same but oh so different…

The transformation of beach glass is the changing of a natural gift of the Universe, through corporate hands, and then the release of the corporate effect back to nature.  There has already been one transformation, but now the beach glass becomes a treasure of nature which can be a gift found by any one of us to transform it again…or let it just be.

The butterfly’s transformation is quite different.  It is always a butterfly albeit its beginning is different than being a butterfly.  But the transformation is truly life changing and totally natural.  

One thing most people might not really think about…the grain of sand that becomes glass is a living thing.  Really!  It is alive just the same as the caterpillar.  But how the change is accomplished is so different.  My meditation is so very active lately…and this transformation comparison was front and center this morning.  I am a living thing, but I have believed, I have become, and now I am.  My transformation really started as I was totally discontent with my corporate involvement; I left; I changed slowly away from the corporate life and influence.  It was like I was a caterpillar thinking the world was over, and I became a butterfly.  Another part of me is now beach glass.  I am becoming a treasure to me first, and I am believing in that possibility while becoming the butterfly spreading its wings, and I am becoming.  But in the beginning I was a grain of sand that was pulled from my natural self by the corporate world, but once released back into nature, I found myself the caterpillar, and the rest is still becoming and being all at once.

Getting Ready for the Flow…

While Spring has finally arrived in Northeast Ohio, Lake Erie is so ready for Summer!  Summer brings FLOW to our minds, our hearts, and our souls as well as our bodies!  Walking the beach at Lakeview Park today was a thrill, and I even found some small pieces of beach glass.  I had never been to this beach before, and it was a great trip for me.  This week has been one to recognize all of the abundance that flows to me…sunshine, health, money, and more.

Money is difficult to change its story as we move forward in life.  This is a statement that you can see the worth to be held in your consciousness…If your desire is strong enough, it cannot be stopped.  So money can change its story with the strong belief.  It really is a reflection of FLOW.  But paying too much attention to your money thoughts can disrupt the manifestation.  So I am paying attention to all of the abundance in my life…sunshine, health, Oberlin, Lake Erie beaches, and beach glass.  Why?  Because I know in every part of my being that I am changing my money story while I am on the mission to help others change their money story.  I know it so I do not have to constantly think about it.  What I do think about is all of the ways I am blessed with abundance…like walking on the beach through the sand, listening to the calming roll of the water, and finding beach glass on this the first day of May.  It does FLOW!

Our Enormous Capacity for JOY!

Beach Glass 12 10 15

I love each piece of beach glass!  

  • Each piece is different
  • And still, all are of the same composition
  • That sameness connects them
  • And the Energy of the Earth created them!  Every single piece!

I love that the Energy of the Earth created sand!

  • Sand is created by friction of elements
  • Sand is sued to create glass
  • Glass finds its way back to the water and returns to the sand as
  • BEACH GLASS!

All things created by the energy of the Earth find their way back to the Earth, including you and I!  Pretty amazing, isn’t it?  And, because we are part of Earth Energy, we have energy from the moment of birth; but it is sometimes blocked by oh so many things that enter our life from the moment of birth!  Just as the sand is not always visible in the beach glass, our energy is not always visible in life.

That makes me sad…

Your energy, seen and unseen, is key, and it affects all of your life:

  1. Your physical life
  2. Your creativity
  3. Your recreation
  4. Your work
  5. Your emotional life
  6. Your nutrition 
  7. Your friends
  8. Your spiritual life
  9. Your enjoyment
  10. Your sleep
  11. Your family
  12. and more…

Just like your energy affects your TOTAL LIFE, money also affects your TOTAL LIFE.

Your money touches every part of your life, and, just like energy, money is always there–seen and unseen.  If your life energy is lacking in JOY, your money energy will be lacking in JOY!  So, what does JOY have to do with it?

“A feeling of great pleasure and happiness…” is one definition of JOY.  Many times when JOY is missing, love may be lacking.  When love is lacking, something takes up that space.  Fear is what many times takes up the space where love has disappeared.  But the fear permeates other parts of our lives including our money relationship.  

FEAR is not a stranger to me.  For many years I struggled with money, and love had disappeared to be replaced by FEAR.  And then, in my professional life in banking and financial planning and coaching spanning over 25 years, my work was with my clients who were paralyzed by the FEAR of Money, who were lacking love, and, consequently, the JOY in their lives was diminished!  Money does that to people, or more, truthfully, we allow money to do that.

How many of you have felt the JOY in your life become smaller and smaller as the FEAR in your life with money has overtaken the part of your life that you would like to have filled with LOVE?

HOW DOES THAT HAPPEN?

So, money is not really capable of taking away your joy, but Negative Energy can!  Where does Negative Energy come from?  It is simple, it comes from:

  • Life
  • Family
  • Culture
  • Religion
  • Time
  • and more…

SOONER OR LATER, WE ARE ALL FACING A LACK OF JOY, A LACK OF LOVE, AND AN ABUNDANCE OF FEAR…

The FEAR that turns positive energy with money into the negative energy with money, eventually leaves us with a money relationship that is lacking JOY!

But, life has an enormous capacity for JOY, and what is lacking can be regained!

AND THAT CALLS FOR A MAJOR HALLELUJAH!

But, where do we start, how can we take the FEAR away and learn how to replace it with LOVE and eventually regain the JOY that life gives to us at our time of birth?  And more than just that, how do we change the money relationship that FEAR has created over the years?  How do we put JOY back into MONEY?

that is the question I lOOKED at when I left corporate America:  HOW DO I GIVE JOY BACK TO MY CLIENTS WHEN THEY ARE FACING DECISIONS WITH MONEY IN THEIR LIVES, in little and big ways every day?

Having the financial background that I have was not working when corporate America was there to sell products and create a profitable bottom line for shareholders.  Clients needed more time and more depth in the work I knew I could do with them.  So, today, I work on changing FEAR to LOVE with MONEY, so much so that financial freedom becomes an unexpected freedom for them.  The freedom comes from relieving their tension and stress when dealing with money because they have learned that MONEY does not have the power over them; they have the power over their MONEY once they have torn away the FEAR and replaced it with LOVE.  And this is where the NEGATIVE ENERGY gradually returns to POSITIVE ENERGY.

The light that appears in clients’ eyes when they learn what to do in any financial situation is priceless.  They begin to feel in control, to feel that they can face their money decisions with the right tools and advice, to feel that they have the power to allow MONEY to work for them in their total lives, and they feel the LOVE, they find the JOY again!  It is a transformation!

YOU can feel the transformation with your money.  It is a transformation just like the creation of beach glass.  You have sand, plain and functional, and that sand can, with the right knowledge, be transformed into the beauty of each piece of glass which can end up as beach glass.  Truly an energetic transformation from sand to beach glass.  You can own the TRANSFORMATION of taking your life from FEAR brought on by money situations and decisions to LOVE and gradually JOY with your money relationship.  

I love what I do in partnership with you.

I love the difference watching what I can do to make a change in your life, in your TOTAL LIFE!

I love it more than I love beach glass for I know what can make the transformation throughout the life of the grains of sand until the piece of beach glass rests on the beach!  

Would you like to see JOY and LOVE return to your life with your MONEY relationship?  With your desire to transform, WE can change your energy in your life so much so that you can change the ENERGY OF MONEY in your life and your family’s.

THIS IS A TRANSFORMATION THAT WILL

  • OVERCOME MONEY FEARS
  • DELIVER JOY INTO YOUR MONEY RELATIONSHIP
  • CREATE LOVE IN YOUR TOTAL LIFE, INCLUDING YOUR MONEY!

HOW, CAN YOU DO THIS?

  • creating trust with your money decisions
  • creating confidence in a confidential delivery to you in your personal space
  • creating the fight to get you through the FEAR
  • and, creating THE JOY OF M.E.

THE JOY OF MONEY ENERGY!

 

 

How Do We Become Personally Sustainable?

Beach Glass 12 10 15

Trying to get back on track about the intent of this blog, but in thinking about that, it is about empowering excellence with your money.  Money is in every part of your life, and mine.  When I talk about money, it is clear what I am doing.  When I talk about Donald Trump and what he is doing and wants to do as a leader in the country, that is also about your money.  While I am not going into the reasoning behind that statement, lest I should be accused of being political–even though I am, whatever Donald Trump is putting out there now and potentially in the future does affect your money in oh so many ways… If he were to become President, you would feel the impact in all parts of your life, including your money.

So I am going back to my basics about life and money…personal sustainability as the cornerstone of my life.  

And I am going to use the beach glass in the personal photo taken today of the beach glass I discovered during my morning hike at Huntington Beach in Northeast Ohio.  Beach glass, while one of the most beautiful things that man and nature produce together, is a wonderful example of sustainability.  Sand coming from the Earth is harvested to produce glass, glass is used to make human objects of beauty and consumption.  Humans tend to dispose of consumables in ways that many times pieces of glass find their way back to the sandy shore, and to the hands of humans, who in turn use them for their beauty in many ways.  It has been cycled through many phases, but it retains its individual personality…it came from sand! It returns to the sand!

Personal sustainability begins with the individual person.  It begins with me.  It was up to me to make myself sustainable.  Before I could make my children sustainable as adults, I had to go back to me as the source of sustainability.  Once my children became sustainable throughout their lives, then I could proceed to help make my community–schools, churches, volunteer efforts–sustainable.  Only then, with our involvement as a family in the community could we contribute to the sustainability of our community.  Then and only then can communities help the environment become sustainable…and it goes on and on.  But it always comes back to the individual to make themselves sustainable in order to sustain, eventually, the Earth.  And it all comes back, just like the sand in beach glass, to money, which is the exchange for all activities in everyone’s life.

For me, that is personal sustainability.  Start with me, and grow into the Earth!

 

Money and Butterflies and Nature and Life

Perfect Butterfly Today Perfection 4 3

Upon awakening this morning and through my meditation on “Releasing”,  the framed print done by a local artist, found at a local artisan fair several years ago, really caught my attention .  It is of butterflies, beautiful blue butterflies, and not just one, but two.  When I first saw it, the butterflies brought my eye to the fact that there were two.  As I began my company several years ago, the butterfly–the symbol of transformation–took a prominent spot within my circle of Energy, and I am always looking out for the “butterflies” whether it is on Facebook, on greeting cards, or art work.  Friends send me greeting cards shaped like butterflies, and I attract butterflies everywhere.  I love it!  It is the true demonstration of reticular activation–what you think about,you bring about.

BUT THIS MORNING, THE BUTTERFLIES LED ME DOWN A DIFFERENT PATH, A PATH WHERE THE QUESTION LOOMED “WHAT DOES MONEY DO FOR US?”  AND, DO WE NEED IT.

Well, when I finish this blog, I am going off into Nature, to the Beach along Lake Erie, to walk, meditate, and be near the water.  And, oh yes, to collect beach glass.  The beautiful, beautiful beach glass which I use to make send off gifts as friends move from this region–it is a piece of the Lake that they can take with them.  The beach glass which is intended to create a Christmas tree this coming year.  It is just plain beautiful.  Oh, and the walk along the beach and the beach glass, as a part of Nature’s recycling program do not cost me anything.

THIS IS ALL A PART OF THE BEAUTY OF NATURE.  WHILE IT DOES NOT COST US TO ENJOY IT, IT DOES COST US TO PROTECT IT.  SAVING THE UNIVERSE IS SAVING NATURE.  AND MONEY DOES PLAY A PART OF EVERYTHING IN THE UNIVERSE SOONER OR LATER.  THE UNIVERSE HAS BEEN TRANSFORMING SINCE THE BIG BANG EONS AGO, AND THE JOB OF PROTECTING IT HAS BEEN PASSED–LIKE THE OLYMPIC TORCH–FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION.

let’s keep it going in a healthy, efficient way, with or without money
