What I Cannot Do

Last time, I wrote:

Tell me something you DON’T know!

and invited you to drop the stories and dig deeper to new truths. True to form, the Universe reminded me of the idea “with a twist” in some readings:

I am always doing that which I cannot do, in order that I may learn how to do it.” Pablo Picasso

At a higher level, these messages are asking us to expand, look into what is possible, focus on the journey rather than the destination. I also hear an invitation to set fear aside and trust that “doing what I cannot do” is normal! Yes, I use that word lightly 🙂

What have you been avoiding because you “don’t know how”?
What doors will open once you’ve done it?


Creating the life we dream of is filled with visioning, forward movement, action. Sometimes, however, there is much value in pause, being with what is here now, in NOT reaching for what’s next. In the pauses, it can also be helpful to notice what doesn’t fit any longer and is ready to be released. Consider this short description of the trapeze artist taken from “The Yamas and Niyamas” by Deborah Adele:

Hanging in Mid-Air

Much like the moment when the breath is completely exhaled, the trapeze artist has a moment when they are suspended in mid-air. My understanding is that they have to let go of one bar and wait in mid-air for the next swinging bar to reach them. If they hold on to the current bar, or reach for the next bar, their timing will be off and they will fall. Instead, they must let go fully to be ready for the bar swinging towards them, trusting the timing of the swing and not their own effort to reach.

What bar have you held onto too long?
What bar are you reaching for prematurely?
Where are you gloriously suspended in mid-air?


Intuition is like a small flash of light that is beginning to fade as soon as it appears.”

from The Yamas & Niyamas by Deborah Adele

You are intuitive. You have flashes of insight, moments of awareness, nudges from within. The Universe is providing clues outside of you as well which spark your inner knowing. How well do you listen? Are you willing to act on a “small flash of light” before it fades?

Today, begin to honor your intuition by moving just a little slower, or taking in a deep breath and noticing, or opening your eyes to what is around you in this moment.

What does your intuition have to offer now?

That “Glow”

It has been almost two weeks since I returned from Scotland. I’ve been asked often about the trip – and as often: “Is the glow still with you?” The glow, the feelings, the learning, the intentions that I brought back from that powerful experience, “Are they still with me?”

Well, I have watched them be present and be forgotten. And I have brought them back into my awareness. Yes, they are still with me. This trip was a huge confirmation of my path at this stage in my life, a confirmation that I have worked hard,done so much, and “get to”: Continue reading “That “Glow””

Take The Client Where They Are

Where are you client?
What’s alive for you now?
Do you know?
Are you ready
to go where you are?

Just for the moment
tomorrow can wait.
Clear your mind
and be free
of the steps you will take.

Time to go deeper,
explore, and be with
that’s blocking
life’s greatest of gifts.

For all that has happened
in days long ago
has left
its own place
in your being you know.

But see it and claim it
and fear not its bite,
stuff leftover
loosens and
feels not so tight.

Continue the journey.
As deeper you go
you’ll find
buried treasure
is waiting below.

Stop now and pause.
Ask a question and trust
that wisdom
and guidance
will rise from the dust.

Listen and be with
direction you hear.
And if
you are moved
you may shed a few tears.

For this very moment
when patient you are
will reveal
to your senses
your own guiding star —

a light deep within you
that won’t let you down.
This truth
in your being
need only be found,

consulted and trusted
when challenge is great.
Follow it
back to the
task of the day

and celebrate knowing
that you’re on your way!
and freer
and ready to play!

Your courage to go
to this place where you are
will surely
reap treasures
and you will go far!
