freedom

In Love With The World

Today, like any day, I am free.

Yet today, more so than usual, the permanence of freedom has leapt from logic to life.

Outside, the world is exploding with beauty. Inside, my heart is pumping strongly in my chest.

A steady stream of potent energy courses through my veins. An electric current of life, of love.

My head is tilted upwards, towards the sun. My arms swinging gently by my side.

My mouth parting open in the biggest, most cheek-hurting smile I know.

“I am in love!” my inner voice proudly proclaims. As if it’s reciting Shakespeare. As if it has an audience.

“I am in love with the world!”

What makes today so good? I wonder. I want to feel like this forever.

Is it the sun on winter skin, the fresh spring air, the chirping of the birds?

Is it that enough time has passed since leaving old constraints behind? Is it the recent shedding of new ones?

How about the promise of a pending adventure?

The soft locking of lips under warming rays, the conversations of impact?

The brief ciao’s, hello’s and smiles of interconnection?

Answering the call of each momentary, most life-giving impulse?

Not so much letting myself off any hooks, as remembering there need be none in the first place?

Finding stillness and letting my energy flow freely from that core space of being?

Or maybe it was just this good all along, and all I had to do was to lean in.

What Can I Do To Express My Highest Potential?

What can I do to express my highest potential?

What can I do to contribute to my vision of a more beautiful world?

Questions many of us have been asking ourselves for a very long time.

Questions leading to frustration and a sense of urgency, when we cannot access the answers immediately.

We sense that our time on earth is short, so we need to figure out what the h* we’re meant to be doing here before it’s too late.

We feel our innate drive to contribute to our highest potential, but we do not know what to do to fully express it.

I still enter these pockets of frustration too. Find myself caught in the doing trap. Buying into “I need to know what to do in order to contribute.” 

Even when I’m leaning into universal love and have a stronger sense of who I am than ever before, I still don’t feel I have learned how to create a life and lifestyle that expresses my highest potential.

So many times I’ve wished I could just “find what I was looking for and settle into my path already”, so that I could contribute more “visibly”.

Today it came to me as relief and clearer than ever before: Nobody really knows how this new story — the more beautiful, interconnected, loving narrative we’re co-creating — will look or fully express itself.

You can’t measure the impact of your contribution to it, because logic and subjective measurements are tools of the old story of “quantifiable reason.”

In the new story, our heart holds our individual compass. It knows what feels right for us and seeks to meet that feeling of rightness.

I’m most strongly connected to my feeling of rightness when I’m allowed to contribute to the shift towards a more loving, connected earth.

This feeling of rightness occurs as a state of interconnectedness. My heart seeks for it and I want this euphoric experience — love, belonging and desire to be of service — for you too. Continue reading…

2015

2015: Stillness, boldness and open space

I have a strong feeling 2015 will be a magical year.

2014 has been a year of authenticity and decision making – of opening up, healing and grounding.

So many of us have been feeling the increasing intensity of the distance between where we are and where our hearts long to be.

We’ve stretched and opened up and cried and healed. We’ve caught beautiful glimpses of how life can be – one aligned with our hearts’ longings. Now we know that which we’ve been yearning to confirm all these years – that there is a more beautiful way of co-existing in this world. We feel it in our core.

We know now that we are strong, capable and loving beyond limits.

We have learned that our being, our spirit is far too grand to be contained in a role, a title, in expectations and even our actions.

We can feel our interconnectedness – and in this world where I am you and you are me, serving each other becomes our highest priority.

All around me I hear the voice of change. We are collectively moving out of our logical minds back in to our all-knowing hearts.

At the same time, the world can feel like it’s moving painfully slowly. I shed many tears in 2014 leaning into the gap between what is and what my heart knows can be. There is such grief in recognizing that you are not where your heart longs to be.

Frustration released in tears feels cathartic and cleansing. From the empty space of letting go, grows new hope and ideas on fertile soil.

I think a lot of us are now standing together in this same space of openness and room for new.

As we enter 2015, healed, connected, more grounded than ever before, here are my  Continue reading…

more-beautiful-world

How beautiful a world can you imagine?

What’s the greatest contribution you can envision making in your lifetime?

Questions I’ve been asking myself today.

I want to be available to you.

Free of time slots, minutes-for-money, appointments and “proper attire.”

Free of small talk, agendas or having “people to see and places to go.”

I want to be open to you, connect with you and ask you the big, important questions straight away. I want to stand so grounded in my truth and love that you feel safe to enter that space of exploring your dreams with me.

I want to hear what makes your heart sing, what you believe are your greatest gifts, what an impact you want to have on the world.

I want to inspire and be inspired every day. Share moments of lightness, connection and joy.

I want to live a visible, loving, impactful example of the most beautiful world I can imagine, walking next to everyone choosing to share this journey.

I have a vision of waking up every morning feeling well rested, free and eager to contribute. I have that vision for you too. Continue reading…
