When Anne Baring and I decided to embark on a bold initiative to end all war and violence on the planet, we knew it would not be an easy task. But we felt compelled to say “Yes” and trust the guidance we were receiving from the Higher Realms.

Since that time, Anne has published her mother’s channeled messages that she began receiving in 1943 during World War II, and which continued for 25 years. They repeatedly warned of a catastrophe if humanity did not change course and if men did not desist from further interference with nature and the creation of ever more deadly weapons, including nuclear and biological weapons. The book is available on Amazon and titled, Messages from a Transcendent Dimension.

What began as an attempt to try to awaken the hearts of mothers and grandmothers to put an end to this “barbarous sacrificial ritual” by saying “This Stops Now” has expanded to include all of humanity, for we need everyone to come together if we hope to succeed.

This is a movement that impacts all of us. Regardless of who you are, where you live, your race, culture, religion, politics – war and violence deeply affect you.

You have a vested interest in and an inherent right to enjoy a life that is free from suffering!

As the Divine Feminine Rises on the planet, we recognize the power in forming collaborations with others who are awakened and committed to co-creating a New Future for all.

That’s why we have scheduled a total of 4 gatherings during the 99 Days of Peace. Our first was held in June and included presentations from women leading the way toward New Earth including Anneloes Smitsman, Heather Elizabeth Neary, Teri Angel, MarBeth Dunn, Laura George, and Sheila Cash. If you missed the event here’s a link to the recording…

When Anne and I decided to embark on a bold initiative to end all war and violence on the planet, we had no idea what we were getting ourselves into. We just knew we had to say “Yes”, and trust the guidance we were receiving from the Higher Realms.

We also knew that we would not be in this alone. For as the Divine Feminine Rises on the planet, we recognize the power in forming collaborations with others who are awakened and committed to co-creating a New Future for all.

One of those individuals is our dear friend and colleague, Anneloes Smitsman. Anneloes is the genius behind and architect of the beautiful EARTHwise Pledges for a Planetary Civilization, which are based on her EARTHwise Constitution and help to create, align, and upshift our missions and actions so we can collaboratively take on the greatest challenges of our time. Think of them as a roadmap guiding us on the path, and freely available for us all to work with and adjust to our unique contexts.

Anneloes will be sharing more about these remarkable tools during our live gathering this Wednesday, June 28th, at 11:00 EDT/4:00 BST. Please join us here…

https://us06web.zoom.us/j/87821590776?pwd=UjFLM01TNzJqN0MrSW83ZjFheTAyUT09

In addition, Anne and I will share more about our Urgent Call to All Humanity: War and Violence Stops Now! And we’ll be inviting other women who are leading peace initiatives to share their missions.

It’s a great opportunity to discover how you can begin right now, during this most AWE-spicious time on the planet, to be part of the Soul-ution to ending all war and violence and restoring Peace on Earth.

This is an invitation for all humanity to create a powerful movement whose time has come: a Woman-led Movement to end all war and violence on the planet and establish Peace on Earth.

Last year, Anne Baring and I had a heartfelt conversation about the insanity that is escalating around the world and Anne’s belief that if the mothers of the world would just say, “No More”, we could end war forever.

Since that time, Anne felt impelled to publish her mother’s channeled messages that she began receiving in 1943 during World War II, and which continued for 25 years. They repeatedly warned of a catastrophe if humanity did not change course and if men did not desist from further interference with nature and the creation of ever more deadly weapons, including nuclear and biological weapons.

Given the dire circumstances we are facing as a species, we decided that we must act on our intuitive guidance to do something now, knowing that to end the deeply imprinted pattern of war and violence would not be an easy task.

What began as an initiative to try to awaken the hearts of mothers and grandmothers to put an end to this “barbarous sacrificial ritual” has now expanded to include all of humanity, for we need everyone to come together if we hope to succeed.

This is a movement that impacts all of us. Regardless of who you are, where you live, your race, culture, religion, politics – war and violence deeply affect you.

You have a vested interest in and an inherent right to enjoy a life that is free from suffering!

What is the Great Pause all about?

I’m excited to share that I will be joining my dear friend and Co-Creatrix, Sheila Cash, for a panel discussion during World Unity Week entitled, “The Great Pause in Moving Humanity Forward”.

We’ve all been barreling forward in an exciting, at times thrilling, evolutionary progression these past years. Every day, if not every minute new and innovative ideas, resources and tools are suddenly in view. In certain ways, our brains have been preparing under the radar gradually over a lifetime and in other ways our trillions of cells are venturing into unprecedented levels of re-integration each millisecond. Every level of our consciousness – spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically is learning superpowers of adaptability.

Never a boring moment!

In the meantime, what has become increasingly apparent is that burgeoning numbers of people are taking a pause. Some have left their jobs or even careers altogether. Many have taken several month vacations or longer sabbaticals. Others who aren’t able to manage that logistically are practicing dedicated blocks of time in nature and meditation. I’ve actually taken two pauses in the past two years, and am just emerging from the second!

While we’ve talked about letting go of old standards of thinking for decades, we’re experiencing the genuine shifts now. We’re finally flowing from DOing to BEing. There is a quietness and an exhale that is rippling through conscious circles.

Sheila calls it “The Great Pause.” Here’s what she says, “What’s intriguing is the sense that there is more to the bigger picture of evolution here. Attunement to life’s impulses reveals trends within humanity as universal energies that are being intricately orchestrated by the intelligent universe. This is about more than just rethinking our jobs. This current phenomena is revealing an organic realignment in preparation for our collective future. Our personal experiences are harbingers of what is forming ahead.

Might this phenomena actually be preparing us for a new level of co-creation globally?

I’m inviting a panel of thought leaders who have spoken about their own need for a pause recently to come together in opening up more personal perspective of this global phenomenon and how it relates to our collective future.”

You are warmly invited to join us on Zoom for this relevant discussion that is a sign of our times:

I am thrilled to share with you what is coming in August at the Parliament of World’s Religions (PoWR). My dear friend and colleague, Sande Hart, and The Women’s Task Force is elevating the presence of Women and the Divine Feminine, a bold next step in the upward trajectory that has been mounting since the Inaugural Women’s Assembly and first women’s programming track in 2015. With 61% of the 7-10,000 attendees being women it’s time!

This year’s theme is Women’s Dignity. Here’s more about the Women’s Village…

https://www.sarah4hope.org/copy-of-sponsor-the-women-s-village

Carefully designed to support the way women create and converge, women are invited to enter the Village and be activated and inspired to deepen their commitment to protect and preserve human rights and dignity for women, for all.

Women’s Sacred Space is a welcoming, safe, and inclusive sanctuary for women of all faiths to pray, meditate, reflect, recline, conduct ceremony, spiritual practice and ritual, to move as women move, and to bless one another. Women are invited to contribute items of their faith tradition, nature, and water to any of the altars in the space.

Sande is the founder and president of the The Spiritual and Religious Alliance for Hope (SARAH), a Partner of this initiative, and they are inviting Sponsorships to help build the Village as this is not coming out of the Parliament’s budget. It’s up to us to build this Village together with our Sister/Brothers/Family organizations.

https://www.sarah4hope.org/copy-of-sponsor-the-women-s-village

The PoWR is the largest interfaith experiential gathering that revolves around the world every few years. Please consider donating to support this powerful initiative focused on women.

And join me live at the event in Chicago for 400+ workshops and panels, plenaries, expressions of faith traditions, indigenous shared knowledge, ceremony, ritual, connections and more packed into this powerful week of 8/13-8/18/2023.

Urgent Call to Mothers and Grandmothers

I met Anne Baring about a year ago when Sheila Cash and I co-hosted our Creatrix Convergence on-line summit. Anne was one of an amazing line-up of women. As we were preparing for her interview, Anne and I had a number of conversations around topics about which we both felt passionately.

This past March, I picked up Anne’s book, The Dream of the Cosmos, and began reading where I had left off – chapter 13 (note that 13 is the number of the Goddess) – titled “War as a Rape of the Soul”.

If you’ve read any of Anne’s books, you know how compelling they are – and I was drawn in by her description of the addiction to war on the planet, the military industrial complex, and the urgent need to address the insanity.

Reading these chapters reminded me of a conversation Anne and I had. She shared that it is her belief that if the mothers of the world would just say “no more” to war – we could end it once and for all. I was so moved by the thought of this actually happening that I reached out to her to inquire as to whether she was aware of any such attempts being made.

Anne responded right away. She told me she thinks about this night and day because she believes it is the only way to break the compulsion to endlessly repeat the pattern of war. But to do so women and men would have to challenge their unconscious obedience to the call of war. She also told me about her mother’s channeled messages that she was in the process of publishing which warn of the dangers of war, and she noted the synchronistic timing of my inquiry.

We agreed that it is time to embark on an initiative to try to awaken the hearts of women to put an end to this “barbarous sacrificial ritual” as she calls it. And it must be shared with as many women as possible. So together, with Dr. Scilla Elworthy, we drafted the “Urgent Call to Mothers and Grandmothers”, which I’ll share in an upcoming email.

It was only later that I realized I had reached out to Anne on March 19th – Mother’s Day in the UK – where she resides. This was the first in a series of synchronicities that have assured us we are being guided to initiate this movement at this time.

As I think about my experience of war and that of most of my peers – we know very little of the horrors. Other than what we see on our news threads – the realities seem very far away. Yet it occurs to me that in truth the war isn’t just happening in Ukraine, or Sudan, or the Middle East.

We’ve all been indoctrinated into a culture of violence that seeps in through our phones, computers, and TV’s. Our children ingest it to the point of becoming de-sensitized through endless hours spent staring at a screen or playing video games. It is in our schools, our workplaces, and our communities. And because the ramifications are so devastating – we either ignore them – or numb ourselves by overeating, drinking alcohol, shopping, or watching Netflix.

The war I’m referring to is the war for the hearts and minds of our children and grandchildren. The war for our very souls.

It’s a war that is intensifying through increased violence in our cities, censorship in media, unchecked development of technology; in the breakdown of the foundational systems that used to provide us security including education, healthcare, government, and religion; and in the degradation of the ground we walk on, the air we breathe, the food and water we consume – not to mention all non-human forms of life – and our precious Mother Gaia.

I was recently on a Zoom call with a dear Soul Sister whose son is graduating from high school. She was telling me about the montage she was creating including photos of his upbringing. She was saddened as she noticed that the joyful smiles of his youth were replaced by a more somber countenance as he moved into his teen years. She said she felt like she had given him away to the world. Can you relate to this?

I do! Having raised two boys, who are now in their twenties, I lived the challenges of attempting to raise decent human beings in a world that seems determined to ensure it doesn’t happen. And both she and I had the time and resources to dedicate to parenting. Imagine how many parents around the globe struggle just to survive, much less provide the support and guidance their children need to thrive.

As proof that we are not imagining the consequences, the U.S. Surgeon General, Dr. Vivek H. Murthy, released an advisory this past week warning of the impacts of social media on young people saying…”Nearly every teenager in America uses social media, and yet, we do not have enough evidence to conclude that it is sufficiently safe for them, especially at such a vulnerable stage of brain, emotional, and social development. Much of the evidence we do have indicates that there is enough reason to be deeply concerned about the risk of harm social media poses.” Murthy added that “children have become unknowing participants in a decades-long experiment.”

Unknown participants in a decades-long experiment! Our children are guinea pigs!!

 

So why have we allowed this to happen? Why have we given over our parenting responsibilities to individuals who seem hell bent on doing everything they can to subvert our role and indoctrinate our children into a culture that has little to no understanding of the Sacredness of life? Why is the culture of violence and war still so prevalent?

“If there ever comes a time when the women of the world come together purely and simply for the benefit of mankind, it will be a force such as the world has never known.” – Matthew Arnold

Whenever we’re on a journey there are revelations to be had. And this healing journey I’m on is no exception. In fact, I’ve had a big “Aha” moment.

Now I am quite certain that when I share this – many amongst you will say, “Duh!” – particularly those of you who are trained in the healing arts.

But I hope that what I’m about to reveal is new to some and provides an eye-opening perspective that guides you on your own journeys. Here it is….drumroll please…

The Journey to Health and Wholeness is the same as the Journey to Higher Consciousness

Yep! That’s what I’ve finally discovered. The steps I needed to take to return to health and wholeness would also lead to higher consciousness and vice versa.

Let’s dive into this. The path to health and wholeness invites us to focus on four pillars: physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. The path to higher consciousness or mastery focuses on the same four pillars.

Physical:

To be healthy we are encouraged to eat right, take supplements, get plenty of rest and restorative sleep, and exercise.

On the spiritual path we are invited to view our Body as Temple and, therefore, treat it with respect and love.

To support these two paths, we might find a practitioner trained in Nutritional Response Testing to ensure that we’re eating foods and taking supplements that are good for our specific body type. We might adopt an Ayurvedic lifestyle or learn more about Chinese medicine. Perhaps we spend more time in nature, get a massage, or begin practicing Yoga or Qigong. All are acts of self-love that enhance our physical health.

Emotional:

We now know that one of the primary causes of dis-ease is trapped emotions. Early in life as we’re attempting to acclimate to life on the planet, we receive messages from just about everyone as to what is acceptable behavior. Which emotions are okay to share openly, and which ones need to be suppressed. And so, wanting to fit in and be loved and accepted, we learn to bury the less accepted emotions of anger, rage, guilt, shame, fear, grief, and more. And it’s the suppression of these emotions that can eventually lead to illness. So to get and stay healthy, we must find a way to identify, process, and release all trapped emotions.

On the path to higher consciousness, this awareness of emotions focuses on the energy around the emotions. It is in our best interest to process and release the lower frequency emotions so that we may enjoy the higher frequency emotions of love, compassion, joy, kindness, peace, abundance, and so forth. Staying in these higher frequencies more often gives us access to the higher realms which supports our ascension process allowing us to transmute fear to love, scarcity to abundance, dis-ease to health and wholeness.

Since many of these suppressed emotions reside in our subconscious, it can be beneficial to seek support from a practitioner who can help us access these trapped emotions. Modalities I have found to be effective are the Emotion Code, Neuro Emotional Technique (NET), and Emotional Freedom Technique (tapping).

Mental:

So, we’re doing the physical work and processing emotions, but something keeps holding us back from healing. Something keeps holding us back from achieving our goals. And that something is quite possibly the story we tell ourselves. A story that has been written over a lifetime by other people. What we can and can’t do. What we’re capable of or limited by. What’s acceptable to our family or will get us booted out of the tribe. And we can be so unaware of these stories – these thoughts – these beliefs – that they are powerful enough to sabotage us over and over again. Our monkey mind never lets up.

In the case of our health, we might believe that we can’t possibly heal ourselves. We have to seek out a doctor or other healthcare professional, and even then we might not believe we can heal. That we just have to live with this chronic illness, or pain, or disease passed along to us through our genes that we have no control over.

“The human brain is a powerful pharmacy that responds to the prescriptions written by our thoughts.” – Mark Mincolla, Ph. D.

On the spiritual path, we may think it’s sacrilege to believe we are human and Divine. We could never be that magnificent. Never be that powerful. What would people think? It’s so much safer to live in our old story, our predictable patterns, our limiting beliefs.

Until one day we wake up and decide we just won’t live there anymore. We discover that practicing mindfulness, reciting daily affirmations, catching ourselves in a limiting thought and flipping the switch to one that is more empowering – opens us up to a whole new way of be-ing. One that leads to not only a healthier life but to a richer one as we connect with the field of infinite possibilities and newfound freedom. We become masters of our minds.

Spiritual:

Lo and behold, on our path to health and wholeness we have uncovered some truths about ourselves. We have learned that we are not just our body, not just our emotions, not just our thoughts. We are all this and more.

We are energetic beings – Spirit in human form. So, how does our connection to Source or our relationship with our Soul contribute to health or dis-ease?

Many healers believe that separation from Spirit is at the root of all dis-ease. So, our spiritual practices are integral to our healing journey. Time spent in nature, prayer, meditation, journaling, and more, all lead us home to the Source of our Be-ing. Our True Essence – our AWE-thentic Self!

Not only are we meant to be vibrantly healthy – we are meant to be wholly and joyfully who we are. We are meant to express the fullness of our being and share our gifts with the world.

We are meant to be to be Radically Alive and Fully Engaged!

Abundance of Life Force Energy = Vitality

So here’s the thing – I’m not saying this journey is easy. It takes tremendous discipline, devotion, and courage to attain Mastery. But the rewards are countless.

We are the embodiment of our Life Force Energy and when we embrace this Truth we restore Harmony and Balance to our Body, Heart, Mind, and Soul.

Healthy, Whole, and Holy is who you are and why you’re here. It’s your birthright. Claim it!

Be bold. Be Daring. Be AWE-dacious!

Freedom Beyond Fear

Last year, following our incredible online summit – Creatrix Convergence 2022, my co-creatrix and I had planned to launch a new program. But my gut and everything in me was telling me to “STOP”. It wasn’t clear why, but I heeded the guidance. In fact, I even went so far as to make the decision to close my business completely as I’ve shared here previously.

It wasn’t until year-end that I had an opportunity to sit back and reflect on 2022. And the revelation that came to me was – overall it was a really “crappy” year. I hate to say that. In fact, I don’t believe I’ve ever said that. I’m a glass half full type of person who always finds the good in any situation. But I just couldn’t deny the truth. And glossing over the reality was causing me harm.

Beginning in June, it felt like a relentless attack was occurring on myself and my family. One crisis or challenging event after another. So, I did like I always do. I went into survival mode and managed through it to the best of my ability not concerning myself with the impact it was having on my body and psyche.

In December, I was at an appointment where they took my blood pressure. It was uncharacteristically high. Not only had I never had high blood pressure, mine was always in a very healthy range. I didn’t become overly concerned and assumed it was simply a result of all the stress of the year confident it would return to normal once life calmed down.

In January, I had it taken again with the same result – higher than it should be. Additionally, I had been experiencing light headedness for about a month at that time.

Playing it safe, I made an appointment with my integrative physician who suggested we do some blood work just to see if there’s anything out of the ordinary. The bloodwork came back fine so he suggested I take my blood pressure each morning to track it.

That’s when things got interesting. I found that any time I went to take it I would become highly anxious. So much so that I couldn’t get an accurate reading. It was like being caught in a loop. The device I needed to check to be sure I was okay actually made me not okay. So now what?

This is a road I’ve been down many times. I’ve lived with anxiety around illness for as long as I can remember, having acquired it from my mom and exacerbated by the fact that my dad died of cancer at just 56 years old.

I’ve even done significant healing work to address this in the past – so why is it coming up again? Why now? And why this?

Easy answer…I got really stressed last year as a result of all the mayhem. I felt off kilter (lightheadedness) and high tension (elevated blood pressure). I get very anxious around issues of health. So, take some blood pressure medication and be done with it.

Hard answer…I got really stressed last year as a result of the mayhem. I felt off kilter (lightheadedness) and high tension (elevated blood pressure). I get very anxious around issues of health. So, address the underlying cause of the health anxiety at a deeper level than ever before so you can rid yourself of this once and for all and restore health, wholeness, and vitality to your life.

I chose the latter because, apparently, I love a challenge.

Here’s the thing – I tend to have very healthy habits. I eat well, take supplements, maintain a healthy weight, exercise, sleep fairly well. So many of the things suggested to lower blood pressure were already part of my routine.

I decided to double down on my meditation practice and began incorporating Yoga and Qi Gong more regularly into my schedule – also trying to be very intentional about slowing down and relaxing.

Additionally, a friend had recommended a book called “The Emotion Code: How to Release Your Trapped Emotions for Abundant Health, Love, and Happiness” by Dr. Bradley Nelson. I was fascinated by it. Yes, I knew that trapped emotions could lead to illness and dis-ease, but I had never heard of such an easy way to release them. Knowing the likelihood that I had boat loads of trapped emotions, I found an Emotion Code practitioner and began working with her remotely.

Here’s what’s really cool…the released emotions don’t just come from this lifetime so it makes sense that we wouldn’t be aware of them. They can be pre-natal (while in the womb), pre-conception (hard to even imagine), and from past lives. And the clearing happens not just for me but for my ancestors and future generations. Power-full!!

Although my health has not yet been completely restored, shifts are happening and the symptoms are lessening. Of course, I want to be healthy as quickly as possible. But I also know that if I rush the process I may miss out on a tremendous opportunity for growth and transformation.

I’m not alone in having deep seated emotions coming up from the subconscious for healing. In my case, I’ve named it fear and anxiety. Another soul sister is working on guilt and shame, while another is addressing loneliness and isolation.

Why? Why is all of this coming up now?

Because it’s time, dear SiStars. Time to heal at the deepest levels of our being. To break through all of the unconscious patterns, behaviors, beliefs, and programs that have kept us in suffering, separation, lack, and limitation.

It can be deceptive. Trapped emotions may show up as subconscious habits or ways of being. An approach to life we’ve always taken without realizing the detrimental effect it’s having on our health, happiness, and flourishing.

We can’t move forward and co-create the New Future if we’re held back by trapped emotions, lower frequency vibrations, and unhealed wounds. These energies are keeping us in bondage – preventing us from fully stepping into our True Essence and Magnificence.

 

 

Trust me, I know it can be scary to go there – to do the shadow work. I know it can feel like we’re just digging up wounds and scars that are better left undisturbed. But the reality is even if we’re not conscious of them – they’re there – wreaking havoc in many cases.

And when we have the courage to “do the work”, we discover there’s freedom on the other side. A freedom we may have never experienced and that we’re destined to remember.

It can sometimes feel lonely to be walking our individual healing journey that no one can completely understand because it’s our unique path. But along the way, in addition to the incredible support of my Soul Sisters, I have felt the love and nurturing of my guides and teachers.

On February 1st, a day known as Imbolc in the Gaelic tradition, marking the mid-point between the winter solstice and spring equinox, I had a wonderful encounter with Brigid, the Goddess of pre-Christian Ireland. I awoke early in the morning and while lying in bed received clarity that my symptoms were being caused by my fear and anxiety. By naming it as emotions I knew I could heal, I felt a tremendous amount of relief and actually felt my heart and head relax.

Later that morning, as I was shuffling my Divine Feminine oracle deck (created by Meggan Watterson) a card popped out. I turned it over and saw to my delight it was Brigid! She was there to assure me I was not alone on this healing journey. The card said…

“There’s that moment when you’re making your way through the dark and suddenly (after what feels like days, or months, or even years) a ray of light comes through to you. A lightening happens. Each step isn’t quite as hard to make as the one before. And you feel a great shift begin, as if now you’re headed toward something new. Something even brighter. Brigid is the essence of that first flame, that first ray of light. Brigid reminds us that the darkness never lasts.”

Imagine how your life will change as you expand your body temple to be able to hold more of the higher frequencies and operate from a higher consciousness here on Earth!

 

Be bold. Be Daring. Be AWE-dacious!

P.S. I truly hope you are well. But if you, too, are feeling the pull to address emotions, thoughts, or symptoms you’ve been avoiding, I encourage you to not put it off any longer. Freedom is on the other side of fear and you’re not alone – we’re in this together!

And if you’re on a healing journey I’d love to hear from you so I can provide support and encouragement. Just reply to this email. Sending so much love!! xoxo

New Year – New You – New Future

I love the start of a fresh, new year. Particularly when the last one – or last three! – have been challenging.

If you’re like me, when you reflect on the past few years you’re uplifted by the many joyful moments when you felt yourself rise above the chaos. But you’ve also been invited, or perhaps required, to engage in self-healing, overcome hurdles, and step outside your comfort zone.

It can be exhausting and wreak havoc on your body, mind, and spirit. Trust me, I know.

 

 

As a result, many of us have taken the opportunity presented by the lock-downs, slow-downs, and smack-downs to go within and do some deep excavation. Ask the hard questions. Re-evaluate EVERYTHING!

And if we’ve gotten still enough to hear the inner whispers of our Soul, we might be contemplating – or even implementing – significant changes in our life.

That’s where I am.

For the past two years, I’ve been hearing the call to take some life-altering, soul-transforming steps leading me on a new path forward.

To add fuel to the fire, the timing coincides with life changes for my entire family. My youngest son is graduating from college this year. My oldest son is moving from the Midwest to the left coast. My husband is retiring. We are selling our home of 17 years in the suburbs of Chicago and moving to the mountains of the Carolinas.

And because that’s not enough upheaval for one woman, I’ve decided it’s time to close my on-line business of eight years, AWE Partners, to explore a Higher Calling and Sacred Mission that has been nudging me for quite some time. I just kept putting it off.

If you’ve been reading my emails over the past six months – which, by the way, an unusually high number of you do so thank-you! – you can probably see the direction I’m headed.

AWE Partners was founded on the desire to teach women how to give, shop, and invest effectively to support causes that are near and dear to their heart. And in the past eight years I’ve provided impact coaching, hosted webinars, created an on-line course, wrote a book, participated in numerous online events, and co-hosted an AWE-mazing summit this past year, Creatrix Convergence 2022.

Yet, despite sharing all of this heart-inspired content it has come to my awareness that there’s something more profound asking to be birthed. It’s not coming from my head or my heart. It’s coming from my Soul.

And I’m not alone in sensing this stirring. You feel it too, don’t you?

There’s something BIG happening on the planet and we’re being invited to step up and into it NOW!

While doing research around my passion – supporting women and girls – I’ve discovered that we can continue to address our most pressing issues in the same way we have but it’s not going to move the needle…

 Health & Wellness

• Education

• Economic Empowerment

• Equality & Leadership

• Freedom from Violence

It all matters. But it’s not enough.

What I now know is that I have to immerse myself in Pillars #1 and #7 of my 7 Pillars of Re-Powerment:

• Re-Connecting to Mother Earth

• Re-Storing the Sacred

I don’t yet know exactly what this will look like or where it will lead. What I do know is I have to step back from running a business so I can dive deeper into the research and writing that will bring clarity of vision for my path forward.

Here’s what I know for sure. You’ll hear from me less often – perhaps once a month. And the topics will include the themes I’m most passionate about at this time:

• Rise of the Divine Feminine

• Sophia Christ Consciousness

• Energy & Frequency

• 7 Pillars of Re-Powerment for Women & Girls

• Co-Creating a New Earth and New Future for All

If this resonates and you’d like to continue to join me on this journey, I welcome your company. Please always feel free to reply to my emails, share your thoughts, and let me know how I might be able to serve you in the future.

If this does not resonate, I ask you to please unsubscribe.

What? Why would I say that??

Because it is SO important that we each become laser focused on our Sacred Mission and stop being inundated by information that no longer serves – even if the information is good and from a trusted source. I have unsubscribed from numerous email lists and backed off on social media significantly in the past few months.

Although we all can benefit from guides and a supportive sisterhood, here’s the truth… You are the Guru! You are the Goddess! You don’t need to look outside for the answers. You know! It’s already within you. You just need to be still and listen deeply for what you’ve always known but forgot.

It’s time to Re-member, SiStar!

It is an honor and privilege to share this journey with you. I look forward to our continued growth and transformation in community – and to the New Future we will co-create in Unity and Peace.

Be bold. Be Daring. Be AWE-DACIOUS!

As we kick off what promises to be an AWE-mazing 2023, I’m delighted to share with you a valuable new initiative from our partner, EARTHwise Centre:

 

The EARTHwise Constitution for a Planetary Civilization:

A Compass for Co-Creating Thrivable Worlds and Futures with the Wisdom of Living Systems

 

 

I’m so excited to have joined the EARTHwise Partnership Alliance for a Planetary Civilization, to align our collaborative efforts through the living systems principles that this Constitution provides.

 

This Constitution has been architected by my dear friend and highlighted speaker in our Creatrix Convergence, Dr. Anneloes Smitsman, based on her award-winning work in systems change and human development, in collaboration with an amazing team of stewards. It is endorsed and supported by a growing group of renowned evolutionary leaders (see image below), as well as leading organizations and movements from around the world.

 

 

 

This Constitution is not a static document, where the only option you get is to endorse it. Instead, it is designed as a compass and evolutionary blueprint for co-creating thrivable worlds and futures with the wisdom and evolutionary capacities of living systems. It is freely available, as a gift to humanity, for accelerating the necessary inner and outer transformations.

 

To join this growing movement and read the EARTHwise Constitution, visit: https://www.earthwisecentre.org/constitution

 

The diagram below provides a brief overview of the 13 Living Systems Protocols that feature in article 6 of this Constitution, with its unique compass in the center.

 

 

Enjoy exploring the multi-dimensional features of this Constitution, including the sixteen short pledges at the end for co-creating the more beautiful world our hearts know is possible.

It’s time to leave the old paradigms and systems behind and bring forth our New Future!

 

 

Be bold. Be Daring. Be AWE-dacious!

P.S. Favorite Quotes from Creatrix Convergence 2022!

“Women are the most negatively impacted by the climate crisis and environmental degradation because of gender inequality all over the world. But one of the untold stories is that women are leading solutions and you can’t actually get to sustainability without them. It’s this that brought forth the vision of WECAN – a fierce and loving call to action by and for women leaders and their networks to accelerate a global women’s movement for the protection and defense of our Mother Earth.” – Osprey Orielle-Lake
