An Inquiry Into Transforming Internal Chatter (ROUGH DRAFT: unedited) The Voice, What is it? After years of working with women and girls and developing techniques, practices and ritual to guide us in transforming self-negation into self-honor, I continued to come up with the same challenge. What is that? Yep. The critic again. You know ‘the…
Visionary Woman has the ability to see between the worlds. Visionary Woman is an inventor of possibilities. She is not governed by reason and rule, but by a sense within herself that there is something she is called to do – and indeed must do. The Visionary Woman, refers to a way of being, a space held within all women where seeing what is possible, has more power than our limitations.
When we cannot see the way through
Give us the courage to continue in faith
When hard times come to our family
Let us gather strength enough to lead
When those around us are falling
Show us the way to stand supportive ground
When we have lost what we have worked for
Cause us to consider there is another way to see it
Do you choose, or are your chosen?
Do you make the path
or has it been in you all along?
(draft) I have an amazing group of women surrounding me who continue to encourage, inspire, lead and perform miracles at our workplace. I love coming to work, and knowing we are going to be together. No matter how tired we are or how hard the task – we are having a pretty good time and…
Today you wanted to talk about “the economy”. How the economy affected my art and work. You told me you felt horrible and scared and mad. My desire to reach out and hug you was all I could think of. I found that optimism felt false, but that doomsday was also untrue I felt a desire to share possibility with you but no words sounded right. I realized I hadn’t found my language yet for what was defined as “a recession”.
The good news is that we are waking up.
The bad news is that the alarm went off a while ago.
The good news is that it is not too late.
The bad news is that we have to act fast.
The good news is that we actually know what to do.
Your original question was: How can we be at peace, yes?
I have told you. And still you do not believe me. How then is change possible?
Why don’t you just try it? Like you tried today, calling on me?
As you all are so fond of saying: What have you got to lose?
So much of this creation, little one, is set up to work with how
you approach your lives. What you allow yourself to think,
and what stories you choose to cultivate. And the stories you make
about the stories to hold yourself, and others captives. If you all would
stop, just this part, the whole world would be different overnight.
You are the miracles in your midst.
After everything has been said that can be said, Where are the words to create the future? From what rib shall we be pulled by God to create something all together new? Tired of old bones, old stories and pre-prescribed reconciliation for sins committed before we were even a twinkling strand of DNA in God’s…
Taking action is one of the most essential parts of realizing or manifesting a Vision. If we do not take action our project remains an idea. An action can take many forms: an action plan, a drawing, a mission statement, a luncheon with someone who can assist, building a model, a business card, a web-presence, attending a workshop, planning an event, joining a club, opening a bank account, calling a circle, hiring a coach, creating a space in which to work, buying a binder, setting up a desk, creating a recording, making a collage, a vision board, a manifestation altar or collage, painting it, singing it, praying about it, enrolling others in it, putting it on your computer, starting a blog even if it is just for you, posting affirmations on your mirror, getting friends to remind you of it, calling people who are doing it, volunteering where it is happening, getting in the presence of it somehow. 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.
