YOU JUST NEED TO CHANGE YOUR MIND

You don't need to change your circumstances. You just need to change your mind.

I see the look on your face. Don't throw something at me. I shall explain what I mean. Remain open, it could change your life.

So here's the deal. You'd like things to be different. You don't like the way they are. That's ok - but you can't start there. You need to change your mind, first.

Difficulties will pass. Challenges will go away. Things will change and CAN be replaced with newer and better. But they won't change until you change. You must BE the change, and change your mind first.

Stop thinking about what you don't want! Work on you, and work on your thoughts. Notice what you think and what you say to yourself, and how it keeps you back. Transformation can occur, but not with the same old thoughts. Change begins in your mind. You must manage it, or it will manage you.

Manage your negative thoughts! Get rid of the ones that wear you down! Stop the battle in your head and refrain from limiting yourself. Positive thoughts FREE you and enable you to succeed. They create the path to your dreams. They get you to where you want to go.

Champions call this the inner game, or the win from within. They know they don't stand a chance of getting anywhere without it. Hmm. Makes you think, doesn't it?

You don't need to change your circumstances. You just need to change your mind.

Have a great day, everyone! Julie.

Dear Friends… I have not fallen off the face of the earth! Thank you to those of you who have peeked in to see where I might be!

Physically I’ve been in England, France, and Germany for almost 3 weeks. Mentally and emotionally I took a little hiatus from our monthly gatherings. The problem with taking one month’s hiatus is that it easily turns into two—maybe 3 😬 ?! I’ll do my best to let you know in the future when I am “pausing” instead of sudden radio silence. If you are still with me, great and I look forward to our session this coming Monday: June 3 at 8 p.m. EST. Lemme know: "Please include me!"

🌠 🌠 🌠
The following is a delightful event I experienced in our travels. I hope it may spur you to be curious and find life’s and spirit’s connections.

🌠 Call them coinkidinks, synchronicities, amazing timing, pure chance, or “God / Spirit Winks” … they happen to me and my family All. The. Time! And while they have become routine and even expected, I never cease to be amazed.

On our train ride from Strasbourg, France to Germany the other day, of all the trains available, all the cars within that train, and all the seats within that car, we landed in seats across from a gentleman who showed a tiny smile when he heard David and me speaking English.

We exchanged pleasantries in a mishmash of “fralemand” (I just made that up—Français/Allemand) that is readily understood in the border town of Strasbourg, especially with persons "d’un certain age" :-). But you could tell he wanted to practice his English. So, with his flawless command of the language, it took about 30 seconds to find the “no way 😮!” connection.

We shared that we are currently from Pennsylvania, and he uttered with knowing and a big smile, “ahhh, Gettysburg!” We thought “wow…he knows his American geography/history!” Well, yes, there was that. But more amazingly, it turns out that 20 years ago he spent 3 years in Gettysburg studying to become a Lutheran minister at the historic Lutheran Seminary that sits overlooking the Battlefield—within 3 miles of where we live!

What are the chances?!? Mathematically they are slim. In the SpiritWink world that I inhabit, it’s a “biensûr!”

As it turns out, due to professional and life events, this pastor is beginning to embrace a less rigidly religious perspective so he and DustyMoose* had tons to discuss, share, and ponder--2 hours worth! Penpal-ing has already begun! He has written me that meeting us reignited a spark of uplift during a somewhat low period in his life. I LOVE being an instrument of SpiritWinks :-).

Make eye contact, smile, and be curious. You never know what coinkidinks are waiting to be revealed.

Happy discovering, Friends!
🫎 🫎 🫎
*DustyMoose = Georgia. In 2017 my son took me to Burning Man (look it up, if you are not familiar 😉). Not unlike other participants of group experiences (trail hikers, team-building groups, sports teams, etc), participants at Burning Man are given monikers that somehow describe them. These monikers are bestowed upon you by others. If you know me just a little bit, you know that I am gaga for moose 🫎! And the area where Burning Man is held is on a dry lake bed in Nevada—dust like you’ve never experienced is part of the package. So, my loving husband (Cabana Boy—I gave him THAT moniker), who conveniently had to stay home to take care of the cat 🙄, sent me off on my adventure with the name "DustyMoose." So now, with any adventure I undertake, the experience is told through the eyes of DustyMoose. And now you know… the rest of the story.

My apologies for this late reminder sans pre-session musing. I am out of town and forgot my computer 🙈. I’m totally discombobulated!

But I’ll be tuning in tomorrow, Mon, Dec 4 at 8 pm EST, for a Soul Star Clearing: helping you clear the “static” between you and You.

Awaiting your “please include me” 🤗

Pre-amble

Hello Hello—Thank you dear Friends, for your gracious understanding of the pause I took last month! . As some of you may know, Hubby (aka Cabana Boy) and I (aka Dusty Moose, when trekking or doing something a bit “out there”) undertook a 110-mile hike through The Cotswolds in England last month.

There is tons of time to think, dig deep, and philosophize on those 12-ish mile daily over hill and dale “walks,” as the British so quaintly call trudging up and down hills. So I came up with a few hiking perspectives that pertain to life as well. Here are a few of those for your contemplation pleasure:

🥾 “Your body (and resolve) will rise to the challenge.” 🥾
This was our eldest son’s encouragement when, prior to setting off, we lamented that we weren’t as physically in shape as would have been wise for our undertaking. His wisdom could apply to any challenging day, to a crisis, to a project undertaken, or to the whole of life in general. Do we realize that we have thus far come through every single challenge we have encountered? And yet we wonder at every new one whether we’ll make it? Not only wonder, but actively convince ourselves that we can’t or won’t! And yet, here we are. We did! What if we gave ourselves the talk that we give our friends, our children, or in this case, our parents?! Why on earth do we “just know” that we can’t? So we can tell ourselves I told you so? What a crummy thing to do to ourselves. How about, “You can dooo it!,” (Waterboy).

🥾 Yes, you still have a ways to go, but pause for a moment and realize/admire how far you’ve already come. 🥾
We humans are an odd bunch. We so often dismiss what we have done, accomplished, or moved through and insist on focusing on “yes, but, look what I haven’t done yet.” Really? I’ve just huffed and puffed and somehow made it up a 40% incline and all I can think about is what I still have to do? No pat on the back, no "wow, girl, you rock", no pause to admire the view. Well, that last part isn’t quite true—the views blew me away at every turn. And it was the views that reminded me how important it is to pause, look back, let the beauty fill me, catch my breath, and resume, knowing that somehow I can dooooo it!

🥾 Take a look at the goal and then bring your focus back to one step at a time. 🥾
It’s good to know where you are going, what you are aiming for, what the ultimate goal is—like getting to the next town, the warm cozy BnB and a pint of cider in a quaint local pub at the end of the day’s hike. Then you’ve got to bring your focus back to putting one foot in front of the other. If we focus only on the end, the whole project, or on what all “needs” to be accomplished by day’s (or project’s) end, it feels overwhelming. Bringing our focus back to the bite-sized steps is actually what get’s the job done. Take a peek at the overall picture every once in a while, but let the major focus be right where you are. It’s the only place from which we can move forward.

🥾 Have fun trying on these concepts with everyday life. And lemme know how it goes!

Looking forward to being back with you at 8 p.m. EST on Mon, Nov 6.

Who’s in?

Group Distance Energy Healing Session: Mon, Sep 4 at 8 p.m. EST. Let me know that you are "in"!

Preamble…
My son, his partner, and another friend are at Burning Man as I write. If you’ve never heard of Burning Man before this week, you likely have now, as it has made national news.

In a nutshell, Burning Man is an amazing art festival, held in a 7-mile radius lakebed (affectionately called the Playa) in the Nevada desert. The event is held every year since it began as a small gathering of introspective individuals in 1986 on a beach in California. During their gathering, they burned The Man—a wooden human-like structure to symbolize the letting go of the old, outdated version of self, and to clear the way for the more authentic self to emerge. A transmutation of Self.

This small gathering in 1986 has morphed into a city of about 75,000 that since the 1990s springs up each year (except for the 2 years of Covid) on the aforementioned lakebed that is now called Black Rock City.

I could write pages about what I learned, not only about Burning Man itself, but about myself. And I wouldn’t be able to scratch the multi-layered surface of what one can discover, create, express, and heal by experiencing this event.

After participating at Burning Man for the first time some 10 years ago, my son told me, “Mama, you MUST go!” Apparently being there reminded him of me! Well, should you google Burning Man and see the extraordinary creativity of dress (or undress!) and the absolutely amazingly inspiring feats of artistic engineering, you’d wonder how on earth he made that connection 🤣. It brings me to tears to realize that it was the love, the positivity, the community coming together, the sharing, the solemnity, the generosity of spirit, the appreciation of beauty, the introspection, the respect, the opportunity for transformation, and ok, the “woo woo” aspect, that made him know that I had to experience this for myself.

I finally agreed that when I turned 60 I would go (pretty much expecting him to forget by then, lol). But no. He remembered. And held me to my word 🙂.

I’m so glad he did. It was extraordinary. One of the best experiences of my life. Among other things, I felt totally and completely accepted as is. I was free to show up figuratively naked. No judgment. Total acceptance. Free to be Me. And how freeing it was/is to enjoy everyone else showing up as themSelves.

I started to write about this tonight because, if you have been listening to the news, you know that these 70,000 festival goers are literally stuck (crazy mud conditions created by rain mixing with the unmistakable dust of the Playa) and cannot leave to go home. The lakebed comes with nothing—no electricity, no water, no facilities (except porta potties that are brought in, thank heavens). As a participant you bring in EVERYthing: 4 gallons of water per person per day (7 days), and food for 7 days. Because participants now have to shelter in place, food and drink are running low. Hearing about this and getting sporadic texts from my son, I just KNEW, that participants are digging deep, finding their inner strength, helping one another, sharing their resources, encouraging each other. Such is the Burning Man way.

After assuring me that all is well in general—he, his partner, and their friend are making do with crackers and canned sardines and have enough water to last 4 days (Boy Scout training to the rescue!) — he shared that some participants are going rogue (my words, not his), are not heeding the directions meant for the good and safety of all, and are attempting to leave the Playa despite the impossible conditions. Only to have their vehicles become stuck in the deep mud and block the exit for thousands of others for when the conditions change and Exodus (as the leaving of the Playa is called) would be physically possible.

Upon hearing this, my indignation (with hands fully on my hips) yelled out “where are their parents? Did no one teach them to be kind, thoughtful, and think of the common good?” Harumph! I immediately assumed these thoughtless individuals were acting out of a sense of privilege, as in ‘the rules don’t apply to me!’ My indignation continued: “Well, the joke’s on you, buddy—now not only can you not get out but neither can anyone else. Happy?” Another Harumph for good measure.

NOW who’s not in the Burning Man spirit? Hmmmm? Maybe they are scared… or have a family member who needs help … or are at the end of their psychological rope after a week in the desert … or are feeling anxious and trapped … or are exhausted and vulnerable after a transformation.

Whether I am deluding myself or not (surely some, if not many, are acting out of a sense of privilege), I am not in integrity with mySelf when I am feeling indignant and thinking the worst of someone else. And I’m not adding to the uplift of the world. I’m bringing myself and the vibration around me down. So, if I am to be true to all I gained from my Burning Man and Life-to-date experience, I’ve got to dig deep and find the compassion and acceptance I am shown when I misstep.

I am not advocating doing nothing when I perceive a wrong. But when a deed is done and one is literally stuck, my feeling of annoyance and resentment is hurting only me. So as soon as I finish writing this, I’m going into the Quiet and giving some virtual hugs to 70,000 Burners who just want to get home. Such is the Burning Man Way.

Distance Energy Healing Session: Mon, Jul 3 at 8 p.m. EST

Pre Session Musing

I was reminded recently of a scene from the series Ted Lasso. Whether you’ve seen Ted Lasso or not (highly recommend, by the way!), the clip and concept will make sense:
“Be curious, not judgmental”* (See clip below).

It struck me when I first heard it on the show and now again, mainly because it made me realize that in fact, my first default is often judgment :-(. I don’t want to believe that of myself, but that split second eyebrow lift betrays me every time. Might this be striking a chord with any of you?

That moment of judgment, however short, is a reaction, over which we have no control — born of our own insecurities, fears, and conditioning. Oh, I may catch myself, backpedal, launch into berating myself, and pretend I’m not that way, but if I am honest, the judgement has escaped.

One cool thing about being an aware human being is that we have the ability to respond. Unlike a reaction, a response is a conscious choice to stop, notice, and re-think (and just because I’m a word geek, I have to interject that the word REPENT! that is so often linked to sin and religion simply means to re-think or think again). We have the ability to re-think and choose to be curious as Ted and Whitman suggest.

Curiosity statements: What might I not know about this situation? What am I not aware of? What could be this person’s background that contributes to them being, looking, or thinking a certain way? Is it possible that I don’t see the whole picture? How about I ask what is behind their opinion? How am I feeling right now that causes me to want to put that person down to make myself feel better? Any others? Please share!

Just to be clear: there is a difference between judgment and simply noticing. Judgment comes with a sense of superiority, snark, of knowing better, or of being dismissive of someone or an idea, and it generally feels crummy if given a while to simmer. Noticing is just an awareness that something/someone is different and either being curious to know more or simply moving on with our own life.

Being curious opens the channels for energy to flow, new ideas to enter, and expands our experience of our fellow humans and our world.

I am challenging myself and I hope you’ll join me: when I notice that I am judging I will do my best to at the very least stop and repent, i.e., rethink. And then do my best to take the next step: choose to be curious. If I don’t end up changing my mind, so be it. But at least I will have put a monkey wrench in the cycle of automatically judging. I know from experience that after enough monkey wrenches, the knee-jerk reaction wanes, eventually stops, and a new way of thinking emerges.

Be curious, my Friends :-)
Georgia

*in the show this quote is attributed to Walt Whitman. Snopes begs to differ. Seems Ted took some literary artistic license. It's a good quote nonetheless. Don't let that detract from the message, lol

Friends, I am a bit behind the 8 ball today, and the message below is timely. I suspect it may be for you as well 🙂. It is not mine — these messages come through a wonderful channel and psychotherapist/Life Coach, Julie Rankin. I have been following her for years and invite you to do so as well if you choose.

She will take the place of my pre-session musing this month and we are on for 8 pm EST tonight 👍. Set your intention to tune in and “see” you there 🤗

With blessings and gratitude,
Georgia

🌈 🌈 🌈

For my friends and clients, I offer this thought today . . .

FOCUS ON WHAT IS MOST ESSENTIAL

Your task today is simple. Focus on what is most essential.

You don't need to be scattered. You don't need to be everywhere, doing everything. You need to make things a lot easier. You need to focus on what is most essential.

Only you can figure that out. Only you can determine what's most important to you. Wisdom lies in knowing what's important, and what is not. Figure that out, and your life will take off.

Start small and start right now. Come up with 3 things that are most essential to focus on today. Ask yourself "What 3 things are most deserving of my time, energy, or money now?" Once determined, do that - and NOTHING else. Dedicate yourself to what's meaningful today.

Once you do this, notice. You will find space to have what you truly want. In this space you will discover energy and creativity. To the world it might look like you're doing less but, in truth, you'll be doing more. You'll be doing the right stuff, and making yourself happier as you do.

More on this one later. For now, simply remind yourself that less is not worse. Less, in fact, is better. As long as you focus on what's most essential to you.

Your task today is simple. Focus on what is most essential.

Have a great day, everyone! Julie.

💜 Pre-Session Musing 💜

A friend inspired me recently. That’s how friends are :-).

She, another friend, and I had embarked on a lengthly self-discovery project. We agreed that we were in this together. We were psyched—psyched to discover more of who we are, psyched to break old habits, create new ones, and psyched to move forward more creatively in our lives. Together. We depended on one another for enthusiasm, to keep each other on the path, and to support each other when the going got tough. If my friend is reading this, she is cringing by now. It’s ok, Friend… it get’s better 😍.

Said friend began discovering ever so slowly that this project wasn’t her path. For now. And who knows, maybe never. She was discovering—through doing the project, mind you—that she was missing other aspects. She discovered she wanted to spend her time in a different way. This became clear to her because she embarked on a supposedly “wrong” path. “Wrong” as in she was deviating from where she really wanted to spend her time and where she wanted to focus. This became clearer and clearer to her as she dutifully stayed on this not-for-her course. (So, not so “wrong” after all).

Should she tell us, her travel buddies? Or tough it out? Hadn’t she committed? Hadn’t she started something? “Once you start something, you finish it!” a voice within her admonished. We’ve all heard it—it is branded in our psyche.

There are times that voice is helpful—to get us over a lull or cusp. But what if we no longer need or want the experience that project is pointing us toward? What if it is taking time and focus away from what’s been right in front of us? Then it becomes a voice that keeps us locked within guilt because we have a pile of unfinished projects trailing behind us.

What if it is those unfinished projects, piled up, that are keeping us weighted down, preventing us from discovering more of ourselves? Clearing those out, like a closet full of clothes we no longer wear (but are saving for “what if”) will almost magically free us to experience more life, more enthusiasm.

Another voiced etched in our psyches: “sacrifice yourself so as not to hurt, disappoint, or let someone else down”—couched ever so pleasantly in the term “people pleasing.”

So what was so inspiring? That my friend allowed another voice—one of her own making and discovery—to supercede the old, worn out ones. She spoke up for herSelf, at the risk of disappointing, of letting down, and honored herSelf. In the words of Alan Cohen, inspirational author: “When you learn to say yes to yourself, you will be able to say no to others, with love.”

… And in so doing, create the space for others to do the same: to free themselves of once well meaning guidance and to discover fresh guidance for moving forward. What a gift when you honor yourSelf! Thank you, my Friend :-).

So, to what will you gently, lovingly, and respectfully say “no,” by saying “yes” to yourself?

With blessings,
Georgia

Dear Friends,
I will be traveling out of the country over our normal 1st Monday/month time together and won’t have time to send out a reminder or to send a session follow up.

Pre-session musing:
I am in the middle of reading Man’s Search For Meaning by Holocaust-survivor and famed psychiatrist, Victor Frankl. One of his most famous quotes never gets old, no matter how many times I read it. Each time, I am reminded of the space of empowerment… the space in which I can step into my responsibility—my ability to respond—to whatever I encounter. May it be just what you need to read right now.

“Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.” —Victor Frankl

See you tomorrow evening!

7. If possible, plan to do easy, calm things for the rest of the evening… read, take a bath, do yoga, knit, __________.
8. The energy will still be “working” after the session itself. Just notice how you feel that evening, the next day and during the week. My hope is you will feel calmer, more centered, grounded and more able to tap into your strength, resolve and energy flow.
9. I will follow up tomorrow (she says confidently!) with insights from my perspective.
10. Please feel free to comment after the session and share what you noticed on your end.
11. If you are not able to actively join in at the “appointed” time, you can still participate. Your intention is all that is needed and the energy will reach you when it is best for you.
12. Above all… be well



2023 vibrates to the the number 7: 2 + 0 + 2 + 3 = 7.
Perhaps you have your own interpretation of the number 7 and I encourage us all to have our own “dictionary” whether of numbers, symbols, dreams, or events. Just because someone somewhere at some point in time decided that a symbol means this or that, doesn’t make it true for me or you. If a traditional meaning resonates, use it. If an idea pops into your head when you encounter something, try it on for size, and see how it fits for you.

The Tarot is no different.
Once. Upon. A. Time. , Somebody. Made. It. Up.
Whether through intuition, research, personal experience, societal dictates, or perhaps a channeling, a meaning is only meaningful if you personally get something out of it. Traditional meanings happen because something resonates with a large group of beings, and the meaning tends to take hold.

So here is MY personal interpretation of the Tarot’s Nr 7 card: The Chariot. Embrace what speaks to you, throw out what doesn’t, and let the images on these cards or other decks speak directly to you.

The Chariot speaks about taking the reins (a project, a decision, life) and deciding “where” we want to go. We can, of course, choose not to take the reins and one of two things are likely to happen:
— we’ll show up wherever and make the best of it (or not); or
— our chariot (you) will stay at a standstill.

Since we are going to end up somewhere anyway (either right “where” we are or somewhere who knows where), we might as well consider making a choice, putting a destination into our GPS, and stepping forward (ie, taking the reins). We have way more input into our journey than we realize.

Maybe up until now we have simply allowed life to take us wherever the wind blows, and truly there is nothing wrong with that—as long as we are good with that. But so often we are bored, dissatisfied, anxious, annoyed, and maybe even despondent about our life circumstances. When that occurs, it’s time to pick up the reins and guide ourselves, as best as possible, to the next step. It’s ok if it’s been awhile since we’ve stepped out. It’s never too late to start (such a cliché and yet Truth). Let 2023 be a year of more resolve, focus, determination, and one step at a time toward that which calls us.

How do we know what is calling us? Follow the feelings of enthusiasm. Of ahas. Of insights. Of that which uplifts.

Do you know what age you’ll be when you begin taking charge of you?
The same age you’ll be if you don’t.

Let’s direct our rides, Friends, to the best of our abilities. It’s amazing what forces come in to assist when we pick up the reins. 2023 is a year in which we will have ample opportunity to recognize where we can take charge and influence our journey.

Giddy up, Friends :-)
