I signed up for a virtual ‘writing camp.’ Camp is about fun, fireflies and sharing stories with others around the campfire. And writing camp is a way to get me seated and well…writing—not something I’m naturally thrilled about. We have the ‘camp counselor’ everyone dreams of—kind-hearted, creative, completely accepting of ALL writing and a great hugger—even though we’re on the phone, I know this must be true!

For one of the camp activities, our ‘counselor’, Julie has us hold our paper with our current writing project at different vantage points to change our perspective. I especially like balancing my blank page for my first ever blog post on my head as I walk around the room. I could get the camp award for how well I can do this! I don’t share that with the others in the group. Now that we have a fresh perspective, Julie prompts us to start writing  “when I see my writing project…”

When I see my writing project, I panic. My chest tightens. I replay the tape from childhood. “I don’t know how to start. I don’t know what to write. Why do we need to write anyway?” The words ‘writing project’ sound like death. They constrict my breath causing it to be so shallow I might die. That’s a bit drastic don’t you think? Well then I might die—or at least severely suffer—if I don’t write it! Please, such drama! Yes, that’s what I should do, DRAMA, not writing. Where’s the sign up for drama camp?

What ‘tapes’ from your childhood are you replaying? What anxieties or fears do you have? What aren’t you doing that you would truly love to do? I invite you to play with me to explore what maybe be holding you back and discover what wants to be so you can vibrantly Live Your True Nature!

I was sad one day and went for a walkI sat in a field A rabbit noticed my condition and came near It often does not take more than thatto help at times to just be close to creatures who are so full of knowing,so full of lovethat they don’t–chatthey just gaze with their marvelous understanding. ~by Saint John of the Cross,16th Century mystic excerpted from Living the Wisdom of the Taoby Wayne Dyer On this Day in May If I were the rabbit, I would be in the field with you. You might hear me–not asking what’s wrong, but in...

You Beyond Borders

Being true to who you are… There’s nothing quite like it when you are fully you. Uncensored. How that feels in your body and soul..! Whether you like her or agree with her or not, “Her genius is that her political commitments, her public persona, and her playing style are one and the same. In every realm, she is fearlessly open, outrageously joyous, and unabashedly true to herself.” I repeat: “In every realm, she is fearlessly open, outrageously joyous, and unabashedly true to herself.” More of that! “When she talks about soccer...

The Power of Love-A New Dance

Posted by on Feb 12, 2019 in Live Your True Nature | 0 comments

You are loved. It’s time to fully know and embody this. Walk as love. Talk as love. Breathe as love. Be love. Not because you desire love, but because you are the Power of Love. (It is the same one you crave.) There is no power quite like it. You each bring your own flair to it. Breathe it out into the world as you dance your Love Song. You will feel what it is like to be deeply and expansively in love-with everything and everyone, even those you had not been able to love before. You now love the unique expression of who they are and feel...

One Oasis

Posted by on Feb 7, 2019 in Live Your True Nature | 0 comments

Where do I end and you begin? What if there is no ending or beginning? When we dismantle our walls and stay open in vulnerability, we are one in the same in the fog, which is more like a nectar of love, embracing all in its mi(d)st. I am forever changed. In each moment. I feel like a pool of water as my edges simultaneously dissolve and expand into one oasis (which includes YOU). The feeling is hard to put into words. Such softness and strength floating in a void that wants for nothing. Such depths of fullness in expansive...
