Are you struggling with self identity and being your whole self within relationships, family, work and life?

Do you believe someone else will make you whole? Are you the mirror of society’s expectations?

How do we touch other people’s lives? The importance of integrating the male and female sides of ourselves.

This interview is part 2 on The Ultimate Purpose of Honing the Muscle of Feminine Self Worth. Although it is focused on major transitions in life it is not just about women. It also includes men being able to claim and hone their muscle of feminine self worth within. Men and women have both masculine and feminine aspects within their being and makeup and learning to live with them each in harmony is essential.

As the Phoenix rises from the ashes of fire the New Conscious Human rises through Alchemy to Transform Life

Shedding the False Self to find truth within the illusion of today’s world can be tough.  Personal life, business, career, relationships, finances, environment, creativity, spiritual seeking, religion, compassion, dominance, empathy and hate are all influenced by the lack of transparency and illusion we and others create for protection.

Yet there is one search for truth that may be the bedrock of our sanity, individually and as a humanity. It is the aeons old ‘Search for the True Self’. For I believe it is only through the finding and understanding of our own true self that the decisions made in life (both important and small) will be far more beneficial to the greater good on all.

Who Am I? Part 1 Now this may seem presumptuous to some, yet sit back for a moment and check in with your life thus far. Ponder the moments when life seemed to be true and real and then ponder those times when all was falling apart…….where was truth of self and actions and where was deception playing out!

Knowing the False Self! Part 2

We all know people who believe they are defined by their $$$ and how many material possessions are owned. Often there is envy felt at why they have so much and we or others don’t. There are also those who believe bullying, violence and taking from others makes them powerful. And then there is the vast majority of people living each day hoping, struggling, pushing and working to ‘just get by’.

Astrology and Teachers Part 3In all where is contentment, joy, happiness, peace of mind and love of self and others? If all outer world trappings disappeared Who would you be? This is the question and search as old as people have lived.

My life has always been the search. My work has always been part of the search, even when I wasn’t consciously searching.

If you are searching for some answers and directions, here are three short audio pieces on questions, ideas, tools and perspectives to start with.

This is the beginning of a series to assist along the way. My background, education and experiences over so many years have honed me to live and hopefully assist others during these interesting and challenging times…….To learn more about Ophelia, her work and art visit

Defining Cooperative Leadership

Ophelia infographic d3

In a world filled with upheaval and less than effective leadership, no matter the country, government, corporation, etc., it is necessary to look for and participate in new or at least progressive, inclusive and grounded processes that lead to win-win outcomes for all involved, no matter how small or large the endevour.

It is so necessary for current leadership, (government, business, community, group, private and public) to re-evaluate how they think, act, determine outcomes, fund projects and formulate the ultimate manifested outcomes of the visions or goals desired.

No one person is an ultimate authority on the perfect how to accomplish such a monumental task. Yet, there are many out in the great world, myself included, who have proven ways, workable ideas and a huge willingness to open new doors to be part of the collective solution.

Some of the keys;

Responsibility and the ability to respond. No blame and no victims. Choices in actions determine outcomes every time!

Today I offer a series of presentations recently done on the process called “Defining Cooperative Leadership”.  This process was revealed, discovered and proven in real time, real life and work circumstances over a period of four years and then years of refining through life experiences. All of this was discovered within the  federally-funded, not-for-profit, social services world – not a place I expected to find these answers!

Much of the information found within these presentations is already used, just not in a conscious and empowering way. Some of the ideas and perspectives shared would not be generally associated with leadership presentations or even skills, yet I have found them to be valid and important in defining the unfolding process.

For those who take time to watch and listen to each one, I hope you gain understanding and share with me your ideas and thoughts.

from point of origin small

From sacred OM through geometries of life to birthing butterfly…our journeys of life

star bursts small

Look deep within and high above……lighting even the darkness recesses of life….YOU!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Made up of the four Cardinal Signs of Astrology the power of today’s alignment marks yet another click in the cog on the grand wheel of life for humanity.  Aries…..Cancer…..Libra……Capricorn. What does it really mean…….choose who you read and listen to and then what resonates within you. If you only get stillness and nothing, PERFECT, BE THERE AND NO WHERE ELSE!

Unlock the Heart …….oh such a message for all. What will you find within YOUR HEART today?

I have searched yet cannot see even a glimpse of the innocent one who came into this world

Oh once again to be a vulnerable vessel so filled with space no degree of love and blessings can be turned away

Spaces so filled with high light and life that joy abounds as overflowing as waters and streams burst forth from their banks with life force blessed….

Flowing beyond confined banks of pre measured sources showing only lack.

You are the full bounty of God’s Divine Breathe

You are the full bounty of loves ecstatic rising from the source of true beginning

You are beauty soft and gentle, Soul touches with breathe and whispers…

Transcend the pain to radiance pure

The touch you long for, it is there!

It is you waiting in the shadows

You have been waiting in the shadows..

Remember the shine and smile of the first meetings when light and light joined force as One

You are the One of pure force and so are all Ones you encountered

Light force pure and blessed within,

Fear not rejection unseen as such only proves a miss of truth,

Words not spoken for fear to know or believe in the loss or change

Cry no more your tears are naught to serve no one, lest only to fall and water Rose and Earth

As you see the lover’s face and smile, smile to be at peace

The times of past are no more as lovers lost and death to end

No more! No more! As light sparkles forth from within You sing the gypsy songs and minstrel bards

            Breath of Life, Breath of Life

            Expand and Sore!

Sat Nam and Blessings of Infinite New Vibrations on every inch of Earth, within every Human Soul present, past and future.

These two videos take you in completely different directions although not really!

There is much I could write on these topics using my own perspectives and learning however both speakers share their information simply, clearly and knowingly.

I hope you take those pieces needed in the moment for greater enlightenment and empowerment.

Sat Nan and Blessings

This is inspiring beyond measure.

Congratulations to Shawn, Dan, Jerame and all those we you met along the way.

family joyA week ago I journeyed back to Kansas City for a visit with son Jerame, his wife Kate and nine month old Flora. Returning visits are about “picking up where we left off, remembering through stories and forging ahead to see the new unfolding.

Jerame and Kate’s current abode is a lovely home with a huge magnificent vibrant garden yard…. trees, flowers, critters, birds, deer make you believe that busy city life is miles from here when in fact it is surprisingly close. Everyday Flora and I spend time sitting and playing on the grass, doing a bit of yoga, singing and connecting with the unseen sparkly fairy magic all around.

Yesterday was a “get out of town day” and so we headed East to more memories and meetings of the past and joys of today – visiting Marshall and Arrow Rock, Missouri.

Another lifetime and world away….. Seventeen years ago Tim and I moved to Marshall, Missouri – a small rural town 83 miles east of Kansas City – He was the Minister for a church and congregation for four years…..lots of memories and stories there!

At little show off time with Flora was called for so a visit with Rebecca was first. Along with her huswith Flora 1band Dan and his father, she reminded us “we are the reason you ended up here!” So true! Hearing her family news, meeting of children, seeing the subtle and not so subtle changes through age allowed for smiles and hugs all round. A quick drive past the old house and then onto our destination…..the tiny village of Arrow Rock, seventeen miles through the countryside.

swim spotSettler’s history starts around 1820s after the War of 1812 when early migration west on what became the Santa Fe Trail took hold. Arrow Rock’s history can be followed from the Native American tribes, early explorers looking for opportunities of land and commerce, the rise of enslaved African Americans, economic  impact of the Civil War and fires, decline of river commerce and traffic with the advent of train travel has brought this little village down to a population of less than 50 today.

Highlight of the day was meeting with Liz Huff, Owner/Chef of Catalpa Restaurant. Liz and Jerame have known each other for many years yet this was the first visit in quite a long time especially since getting married to Kate and having Flora. Fun and stories were shared while enjoying the amazing food at this tiny (8 tables) AWARD WINNING restaurant way off the beaten track. 2012/2013 Best Rural Restaurant in Missouri by Rural Missouri Magazine.

For a mini-blog review   See Catalpa’s Face Book Page.

Until next time……Blessings each day!
