Self worth= doing-ness?
Why is it that our self worth is wrapped up in our “doing-ness”. I have been thinking a lot about this today as I woke up feeling poopy and had to take it slow. Thankfully, I work for myself and I had the leisure to do that. Not many people can say that, so for that, I feel very blessed.
So, back to this “doing-ness” thing. I notice that if I rest during the day when everyone else is caught up in their busy-ness, I have a hard time letting that be OK. I do love to have quiet time for myself- to day dream- do as I please once in a awhile. This is the biggest pleasure of our 20’s, I believe. The time when we have few responsibilities- no business, family, husband, kids, schedule to keep up with. All of those things that make a life. This time to reflect is important. It is the creative time when you can let your mind wander into new possibilities. When we are caught up in our "doing-ness" we don't allow ourselves this time. Staying busy is SO last year! It's time to reflect, relax, allow, trust. Winter is perfect for that.
So this year I will be 37……holy crap batman!
This lead me to question, what do I REALLY want for myself? My life? I actually think about this a lot…..perhaps too much. It may be because I ask my clients this all the time……
”What makes you tic?”
“What lights your Divine Fire?”
“Why do you feel you are here one this planet, at this time?”
They are big questions, and I think because I am a Leo and a visionary creative-type I feel that my life is supposed to mean something. That I am here at this time to do something big, to help turn the world “ON” to light our fires, to inspire the Divine Dream that lives inside of us that is there…..for the world.
Yes, this is my purpose….my reason for being. How I manifest it is completely up to me. That is the beauty. The Divine Dance of destiny and free will.
So, Beloved, what is lighting your fire today?
Life is a grand buffet!
What are you choosing?

We are living in a crazy world. Time is speeding up- and slowing down at the same time. Polarities are getting more extreme. There is more war on the planet than ever before- more weaponry- more poverty- more crime- more teenage pregnancy- more drug use (legal and non-legal).....the list goes on. This is what happens when times change- when the way we have been doing things for centuries, shifts.
In the midst of all of this chaos there is beauty. We are moving away from a masculine-driven model of society back to a more feminine, receptive…..from a place of, “I know” to a place of “I am”. From domination, to collaboration; from separation, to unity; from fear, to love; from settling for a life, to creating your life!
Our natural state is JOY, beloved!
All things stem from this. We just forget as we move forward in our lives……getting caught up in what we need to do to survive, we have forgotten what makes us THRIVE!
What makes your heart sing?
What fills you with love and light?
Dancing? Singing? Painting? Drawing? Sculpting?
I imagine it is creative, whatever it is. We are creative beings living in a creative Universe, creating our realities in every moment.
Are you enjoying your creation?
Find your Divine Juice! This is what you need to incorporate every day to keep the Divine Spark alive in you. This is what keeps you grounded and connected in times of chaos. This is the silent, yet joy ~ filled place that the Divine lives in you. Don’t wait for it to be “OK” to make that time everyday. Noone else will give you the permission. You must give YOURSELF the permission. You know you need this. You know it is essential to your survival. If you feel that you don’t know what awakens your Divine Spark, then experiment. Take a class, buy a few art supplies and play. Put on your favorite music and DANCE. Sit down to a blank page and see what comes.
Once awakened, it must be cultivated and fed or that Divine Spark will be put out.
Remember, people who don’t make time for this themselves will try to make you feel silly for doing it.
I am here to tell you IT HAS BECOME AN ESSENTIAL PART OF YOUR SURVIVAL AS A HUMAN SPECIES to awaken this Divine Spark inside of you and cultivate it on a a regular basis. You are a spirit having a human experience; therefore, your Spirit must take precedence now.
The part of you that is creative is also the feminine within you- whether you are a man or a women- it is also the receptive, the part that knows we are all connected and that our lives matter- a lot. There is no accident that you were put on this planet, at this time. Your JOY is meant to be shared with the world. When we awaken that Divine Spark in us, we help humanity to do the same.
As you know…..everything is energy……and you have the power to direct that energy for good.
Find your Spark, Beloved, and Live it!
Now it the time, and you are the one.
All our love~~~
