I am LOVING loving the end-of-the-decade vibe we're in right now! I'm doing tons of reflecting and releasing to make space for that I want - not just in the new year for in this new decade.
As I look back through the decades I see that there is one thing that's always been constant for me: My dreams are ALWAYS calling me to be more creative. To use my creative gifts to help others. What this looks like in the outer world changes all the time but that inner pull remains the same.
Hearing the stories of people who are pursuing their dreams is one of the things I find most inspiring in the world. I'm lucky, I get to hear these stories every day in the Creative Dream Circle, my Online Incubator for Dreamers, Artists, Healers, Coaches and World-Changers.
So I'm sharing some of their stories out here!
Today I'm talking with Eefje Jansen. Eefje is working on accepting who she is and daring to share her light with the world. She is a sensitive, intuitive woman,...
I did literally fail at ALL of my goals for 2019 and, upon reflection, this is a VERY GOOD THING.
I have a lot to say about how wholeheartedly and enthusiastically pursuing our goals can move us towards our dreams - regardless of it we reach the goals or not.
So.... as I shared yesterday, I failed at ALL my goals for 2019.
Last week I did a Circle of Reflection + Release in the Creative Dream Circle - we got together on Zoom to reflect on 2019, to explore and honour all the...

Reflection + Release. This work is a way to make space for what you want.
So often you want what you want but you're holding on to what you have so what you want has no space to arrive in your life.
The end of the year is a really good time for this work, to let go of what you don't want to carry with you into 2020.
I feel like I have a LOT to reflect upon and release in order to step into the vibe I want for 2020. I mean - 2020! A whole new decade!
But sometimes this work is...
I've been stuck about writing this page for about a month.
After 13 years of teaching this stuff and 9 years of successful online creative entrepreneurship - it's been humbling and frustrating to not be able to write a sales page for the program I have made that I am the most proud of.
Dream Book is the best thing I've ever made. So of course I got all tangled up trying to figure out how to talk about it. I mean it took me 2.5 years to make Dream Book - why would I think making the sales...
This is one of those classic new age affirmations:
It's easy for me to ___ (fill in the blank with something specific) ___
And the idea is that you're supposed to repeat it to yourself until you believe it. You're supposed to CHANGE your belief that it's hard to have your dream.
It's NOT that hard to change a belief. Beliefs are just thoughts we think so often they become weightier in your unconscious. There are lots of tools for changing beliefs, for creating a belief system that makes...
I'm sitting here, feeling inspired and creative and powerful and ready to take action... and I realized that I have no clue WHAT action to take to meet my goal.
As the creative/inspired energy clashes with the overwhelm of not knowing what to do everything gets foggy and I just want to take a nap. But when I listen to what my most powerful self is saying, it's clear: I just need a plan.
But I don't know HOW to make a plan. I have NO clue how to reach my goal.
So I printed out the "I have a...
Centered Grounded Present is a 3 week meditation and journaling program.
It's everything I want right now... So of course I have been avoiding it with everything I've got.
I keep telling myself that I am TOTALLY going to do this, but today is just not the right day to start.
But the truth is, I am afraid at what may happen if I slow down a little and explored the qualities of being more centered, grounded and present. I'm afraid of what I might learn about myself or my dream.
As we approach a brand new decade, I've been thinking back to 2010, when I was getting ready to leave my office job to pursue my dream full time.
It was such a transformative time for me. Leaving my job was about claiming my truth. I wanted to live creative and free.
But freedom... isn't free. It took a lot of work to develop the kind of rock-solid trust in myself that I've needed to have to navigate these last nine years.
And I've been taking it for granted.
It's easy to take things for granted when they're always there for you. And I forgot how hard I worked to get this trust in myself and this ability to act BRAVELY...
