When folks have MANY facets to their lives, we are often told we are distracted or fragmented and that we need to “FOCUS”. Focus pocus. Sure focus gets things done in a more timely manner on a timeline someone else set up that equals results someone else wants to measure as success or completion. But for those of us who are renaissance women – those of us with many interests – what if we want to bake cupcakes and save the world? What if we want to be a little barefoot and pregnant wife and run for congress too? What about us? What if we want to ride the freedom train instead of a high speed jet?
That is why on our Red Thread Connection Telecouncil series we invite you to light a candle or have a cup of tea with you. It doesn’t matter what tradition you come from, all of them have different rituals. It is not scary or woowoo.
* When we think something with our mind, step one.

May you choose to sift the glitter from the grit of life.
May you sharpen those internal soul tools that make self excavation possible, even when messy.
May you choose to pursue your life purpose fearlessly, no matter what bills are due.
May you realize that you don’t need to be inspired to create, and you don’t need to clean the house or the catbox first.
My ideas are worth exploring
and my creative acts are sacred, worthwhile and valuable.
I answer the call to create
without feeling I am taking away from something or someone.
I know that I have something unique to say and create,
that is only mine to express and so it is original.
Bless us this day with your presence
Show us the way through the hard to see places
Anoint us with the oil for far seeing
