My Year in Thank You's

Countdown to the new new. Forget Xmas, I could do without it. New Year besides Halloween is my favorite. I love it so much because the possibility of colors and adventure on a 365 day clean slate makes me giddy.
It also makes me so very, very, happy to rewind and be super grateful for the details that made this past year nothing less than a transformative, smashing success.

With that said, this will be my last blog of 2014.  My brick and mortar, Venus Rising won't open until the second weekend of January.  Stay tuned for the awesome manifesting workshop coming January 10th with a lovely Metaphysician who will teach us some visual aids for magic.
In the meantime, I'm going on vacay to spend sometime with my best friend from France & her beautiful family.  Enjoying the holidays to the fullest and soaking up every last bit of awesome I can squeeze out of the 'Twenty14' is my highest of priorities right now.  Dig?

So without further anything, here is my list of gratitude.

*I am ever in gratitude for my daughter Sophia, my greatest teacher in all of her beauty, wisdom and contagious laughter.
* For my neighbors, community and town.  I have never felt so at home, so loved, so appreciated here.  Thank you.
* For  my clients.  All of you are superstars in your own right.  I've been blessed to watch you take cosmic tools and make transformative magic in your day to day reality.  I'm honored, humbled & forever grateful to witness the amazing webs you weave!
* The awesome lessons and people I got to work with during the Democratic campaign. Being political is spiritual no matter what side of the campaign line you rest your hat.  I could go on for days, but for the sake of brevity I'll keep the momentum of abundance rolling.
*I celebrate my Goddess', my wolf pack each for their individual hearts, divine creative sparks and for the solid support system that have blanketed both myself and my daughter with.
* I am to thankful and happy for my brick and mortar; it's multipurpose platform and for all of the people who make it whole. In gratitude for the strangers I meet, the smiles and the stories we share.
*I am forever grateful to have married a dozen beautiful, loving couples this year.  Getting to share in their love and their special moment of union sends me to the moon and back.
*I celebrate the internet and the connection it allows me to have with friends of old and new peers across the globe!

I am humbled over the horrid, excruciating  experiences I've endured this year that have taught me the invaluable lessons of:
 connection vs. attachment,
the fear of failure vs. the fear of success,
the true psychological power and Ego message behind "selfies"
The power of saying no vs. the power of not showing up or flaking out
that not every loss is truly "a loss"
and how truly opening your heart to the possibility and vulnerability of love doesn't mean your weak, doesn't make you any less Sex In The City but makes you available to the grace and possibilities of unconditional love.

Now, more than ever you I have known and lived fistfuls of times over, that you do really get what you ask or pray for, that what you do comes back to you three fold.
The energy you exude (be it online or in person) is mirrored back to you.
And that even though it's hard, even though you may cry more tears staying in the light, biting your tongue in silence, holding your fists behind you - choosing peace that this - is truly the most powerful way to stay connected to who you really are and what really matters.

Value what's left of 2014 and think about what's to come.
How will design 2015 and shop up for it?

See you on the flip.
Happy Everything - always.

PS. To my sun, the hot hot :) flame that warms my soul.  I love you with all of my heart.
The fact you have embraced not only loving me but ensuring that Sophia also knows that she is loved is what I've asked God for.  You read my blog.
You laugh with me breathlessly, and I am in complete awe of ALL of you.
Thank you for loving me, for loving us.  I am truly, madly, deeply in love with YOU.   XOXO M

A Suicide Berceuse.

This is for you the broken hearted.This one is for you who can’t get out of bed and for you who may be finding it so damn hard to return the texts, emails and phone calls from anyone. 
This one is dedicated to those who having a hard time showing up because even thinking about showing up is too much energy. 
This one is for you who can’t seem to move on after the loss of a beloved. It’s for the ones whose days gone by are better than the days you’ve been wading through.This is for all of you who can’t catch a break financially, romantically or dream wise and wonder what it's all for.
The world has an immeasurable void in it. Constant pain inflicted from headlines or bylines is palpable. You’re unsure of your footing on our planet because the ground beneath you is unstable even when the sun shines otherwise.

4 Reasons Why Badmouthing Others is BAD For YOU.

I was talking today with a friend about the importance of words.  How you use them, positively, negatively any which way.  Words are like weapons.  Once you put them out there, they are pretty much impossible to take back.  Sure you can say you are sorry but it doesn't wipe the blood and guts off the floor from the initial bullet wound.  Forgiveness is key, but let's be mindful of our words from the get.  Dig?

Here's a repurposed blog to go along with those thoughts.

Everyone gets hurt. No one is perfect. People mess up. Mistakes are made. But the cross you bare when you badmouth someone else's questionable deeds or good fortunes, their life advances or personal tragedies is a very heavy one.

When you engage in loose lip service per say "warning" peers or anyone within earshot about someone or someone's "drama" or perhaps you seem to regurgitate the pain someone has caused you over and over to friends, strangers, clients, family members....wel…

The Sum of all Jitters

Monday, I leave my precious, beautiful and sacred bubble of Jim Thorpe for New York City to embark on my first week of Kundalini Yoga teacher training.  This learning adventure will stretch over the course of the next eight months. It's something that has been pulling at my heart for the last five years in terms of spiritual and physical evolution.

 And naturally with most new personal mega shifts or changes comes a tinge of fear. 
Yes, it's normal.  Don't use my words against me. But the 17 year old who lives somewhere inside of me sits up, batting her eyes so that I take notice.  She thanks me for honoring our future. She is excited for possibility and for helping others, always. But she bites her lip "even though we've come so far regarding our body image, even though we've done so much self love/self esteem work over the years, I'm still scared to wear white pants."

And I feel her..

It's not because I stain every white piece of clothing I o…
