Practice believing in yourself and your project. Walk about it. Dream about it. Make up names for it. If you are a prayer person, pray, if you are a meditation person, meditate, if you are a wish upon a star person, wish and wish and wish. If you are a ‘mostly intellect’ person, think on! As it is all very much about our thinking. If you are a chef, cook it in your soups, if you exercise, move it! FOCUS on it! To create with good intention, can be an act of personal and collective abundance.
Greetings Dear Ones! As you know, Cosmic Cowgirls University is dedicated to transforming lives into legends through teaching revolutionary thinking, conscious creativity and visionary entrepreneurship…and most importantly of all, sharing women’s wisdom with the world. That is why we wanted you to know that tomorrow The Inspiring Women’s Summit begins, and we wanted to be…
hen we have tried all the tricks: the potions, the rituals, the positive thinking, the books and the seminars. When we have tried the quick fixes and the long fixes. All the stuff that was guaranteed to work if we will just work it – and it still isn’t working – then what? We keep waiting for our “ship to come in” meanwhile we are getting more behind every day.
When things are still not turning out as we had planned, no matter how hard we try – or how much we believe that it is going to flow to us with ease if we could just sit back and meditate on our ideal life, then what? What if we get cancer anyway? What if we are infertile? What if we have to get false teeth? What if there isn’t enough food in the cupboard? What if there is no cupboard? What if we lose our house after years of good behavior at the banks? What if there was no house? What if we cannot get a good nights sleep and we see the whole world through wonky spectacles? What if the good die young and the bad keep toasting their champagne glasses? What if, after years of diligent action, our business fails anyway? What about running out of ideas? What then?
I give honor to those who dream while using creativity as a lens through which to view the infinite universe. Inventors who imagine the impossible, those scientists who seek to discover, those poets who organize the words, and those artists who give shape to the vision are the ones who make it possible for the rest of us to begin to lay hold of that which lays just beyond the reach of our mortal minds.
I forgive myself.
I forgive my self for all I cannot do.
I forgive myself for what I said I would do but didn’t.
I forgive myself for what I want to better but cannot right now.
I ask forgiveness of those who are affected when I cannot do what I say I will.
I have compassion on what others said they would do but didn’t
e are a curious breed, entrepreneurs are.
Courageous, wild, far seeing, illuminators,
idea starters, stubborn, optimistic, big hearted,
curious, dangerous, not prone to discouragement,
right brain left brain thinkers, and…visionaries.
Did I mention, visionaries are unreasonable? We are.
magine a woman who trusts and respects herself.
A woman who listens to her needs and desires.
Who meets them with tenderness and grace.
Imagine a woman who acknowledges the past’s influence on the present.
A woman who has walked through her past.
Who has healed into the present.
Our Lady of the Red Thread
According to thy Wisdom
Open the doors that need to open.
Close the doors that need to close.
Every single one of us has a calling.
Answering that calling is real medicine…while not answering often leads to illness and sorrow. Or even to the worse kind of illness: irrelevance…invisibility…listlessness…restlessness….despair…
Now you and I know that just because we begin to listen and answer we will not be instantly whole and completely well! Poets, artists and musicians are evidence that following the call, however illuminating to the soul, does not mean miracle healing. No. But, there is a very palpable experience of healing for those of us who answer. As Martha Graham in a letter to Agnes De Mille says so well:
“There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action…”
This is my feminism. That I might think the thoughts which I would like to think. Free from the frames of thinking which I have taken on. Conscious or unconscious. To have a free thought in which my own mind is Queen. How might we disentangle ourselves from concepts brought about by an enforced consumer…
