Celebratory greetings on the longest day in the North!
Happy Solstice to you.
I’ve just learned what a powerful portal day it is for opening to our own healing and flow. Both self-reflection and gathering in a circle magnify those energies. This message invites you to do both!
Todayâ€™s series of questions for reflection:
* How is it that listening more acutely to yourself can be so healing?
* What practices do you have in your collection?
* How are you doing with actually using the positive practices that you know?
My whole lifetime living in the default position of, â€œGo Deep First,â€ combined with a commitment to bringing forth in each moment my best self and highest expression â€¦ Ah, this calling to shape and share a life of wholeness while creating what matters most, THIS is the heart of the sacred journey for making life into a work of art, a process-based art of living into wholeness and co-creation. All this keeps things moving forward and deeper.
Yet while continuing to plumb the depths and live life beyond the frontierâ€™s leading edge, I landed in a quandary, thinking, â€œItâ€™s incomplete.â€ My challenge has always felt like, â€œI canâ€™t begin to share this. Itâ€™s not whole yet. Iâ€™m not cooked, and thereâ€™s more to be revealed!â€
Then something shifted. I was not exactly ready, but the willingness to experiment had shifted inside. The worldâ€™s energies were shifting too, inviting these new transformational depth-soundings out into the public sphere. After a three-week trip to India, I found myself dangling over the void one more time. From this deep sweet center of sacred emergence, (AKA chaos) I knew it was time. (Even if I wasnâ€™t really ready.)
Go Deep First
I used the 7 steps of what I call the â€œGo Deep Firstâ€ process on myself, to create this process as â€œwhat matters mostâ€ right now for me. Itâ€™s allowed me to get clear on how Iâ€™ve been a catalyst for transformation– even when I wasnâ€™t quite sure what Iâ€™d â€œdoneâ€ for?…to?… with?... my people and clients to support their transforming. Now Iâ€™ve turned this implicit and invisible magic into an explicit, clarified process and a sacred circle mini-retreat.
Create What Matters Most
â€œGo Deep First to Create What Matters Mostâ€ taps into peopleâ€™s essential wholeness. It is a continuing and iterative process, so that those who really use it, including me, the facilitator, can continually take the work — writing, healing, learning, co-creation, collaboration, insights, art of every kind — deeper, following an ongoing learning journey.
Tap Into Your Deep Why — To Get To Your â€œWhatâ€
Itâ€™s an inner workout for strengthening your innards for what it takes to give birth to a new vision, whether itâ€™s a personal healing journey that matters right now, or itâ€™s the content and message for a book, talk, workshop, a whole new body of work, web site. Or maybe you find yourself at a crossroads where making a conscious choice about the next path is crucial. The process works in service to deepening anyoneâ€™s journey. It meets you wherever you are on your journeyâ€™s path to inspire and infuse confidence in creating what matters most to you. Now.
I am so excited to be facilitating a live sacred circle. Itâ€™s for co-creating what matters most to you right now. This afternoon mini retreat is in the Chicago area on Sunday July 20, 2:30-5:30. For full details and to register online: http://bit.ly/1iWJmbL
What you get is an inner-power-tool for creating what matters most. Itâ€™s a renewable resource for tapping into the well of gifts that all of us are here to bring forth. Use this process to bring them forth with quality and confidence. How you get there is by going deep first. I have done the process with groups, in one-on-one sessions, and for myself. It is a malleable and flexible tool that people can use on their own, repeatedly, with new insights gleaned each time.
If you’re feeling curious and hopeful, longing to bring forth the gifts you are here to give, then please take a look. It’s a potent first step! Details and to pre-register: http://bit.ly/1iWJmbL
Sending you blessings on your path as you magnify your presence and transform your people —- starting with yourself.
Warm solstice blessings,
P.S. Remember to use the positive practices that you already know! And if you sense the camaraderie of a sacred circle can help you amplify your process to get the creation juices flowing, then take a look at the description of what weâ€™ll be doing on July 20.
Hereâ€™s the EventBrite link with details and to pre-register. http://bit.ly/1iWJmbL And be sure to mark your calendar for July 20!
P.P.S. If you are feeling called to this journey, and getting to Chicago in July isnâ€™t going to work for you, then shoot me an email. We can schedule a brief conversation to see if doing this visioning journey work one-on-one is a good move for you right now.
