Flood yourself with water

Good Friday to you my friends…DSCF6327

Before I sign off for my rejuvenation and personal writing retreat, where i will be without cell phone or internet for a week (wow…that kind of makes me nervous!)…

I have something to share with you…

Flood yourself with water

Both internally by drinking enough and in quiet meditation and reflection!

I am doing a cleanse (after the last intensive month), and wanted to fully take care of my body and spirit. My most incredible acupuncturist, Anne Carruth, gave me a fabulous treatment the other day, cupping my back (which I freakin love!), and needling me to restore my balance and prep me for my upcoming creative retreat.

She said. Let the creative juices flow, breathe in water from the soles of your feet and up your body, creativity, to allow that flow of energy, of the vitality of water, to immerse yourself in it, in so many ways. I lay there, basking in the flow of the water, and my angel guide sitting with me, allowing the cleanse, the healing, the reset, feeling the pulse of life, the unfolding and blossoming, while sinking deeper into my body.

What does that feel like for you?

What images does it conjure up? Doesn’t it feel just so enveloping in warmth and sensual aliveness? Doesn’t that just sound so good?

To fill yourself up with the element of water, of goodness and richness and creative life force… and circle it through your womb of your feminine creative essence, with hips circling and swaying, heart opening, to enrich your spirit and allow the passionate vitality and birthing to emerge and flow…


Now take that feeling…and go to this story…

Having a discussion with a few women in my morning gym dance class about what we do, a woman looked at me and said she wished she was as exciting and interesting as me… that she was boring… I said you can’t possibly be boring, and she adamantly said “oh yes I am”… I just looked at her, then said “you can change that”…

How sad to consider yourself boring, dull, with no exciting life…and she was in her 60’s. To actually insist that you are boring. Out loud. Wow…I was dumbfounded. It hit me hard, actually shook me to my core and I wanted to shake her alive.  omg…

That is not what we are here for…This life is for living. Full, passionately, with soul, heartfelt connection. To make your life what you want it to be.

I have created my life.

The. Way. I. Want. It.

I explore, I create, I love, I laugh, I open up to receive, I give gratitude, I listen, I teach, I lead, I guide, I dance, I fall down, I get up, I create magic with circles of women, I write poems, I grow roses, I make food that feeds my body and spirit, I do something new, I do something old, I love, I play.

Yes, I have beaten myself up, I have antagonized myself, I have cried, I have laughed, I have given up, I have quit, I have started over (many times), I have changed, I have written, I have danced, I have sang with my mouth wide shut, and my mouth wide open…

But people, none of it has been boring. Or dull. That is unacceptable. This life is truly a gift, a sharing, an exploration, a joyful opportunity, a time of helping, of giving, of taking, of opening to vulnerability, of doing something new (trying is a word taken out of my vocabulary, along with with busy, and I can’t afford it)…

Go after what you desire…flood yourself with water…fill your heart…

Yes, it takes a vision, with skills, a mindset, some tools to make things work, not just because I wish them too, but with concrete actions, maps, assistance, always a coach (!),  guidance, inquisitiveness, aliveness.

So people, flood yourself with water, take it in deeper, find your beauty, create some everyday magic and live your life!
