Monday: Intention

Andrea at ABCcreativity urges us to find an intention for each week -a word to live by, something we wish to manifest in our lives for the next seven days.  Last week I chose the intentions of {faith} and {possibility}, choosing to keep my mind and heart open and see what magic the universe had in store for me.  And man…did it EVER deliver.  I made progress on so many fronts: I rediscovered an old business workbook and it’s leading me into new territory with Spirit Moves Dance, I bought a domain name for a completely different business that I’ve always joked about starting up…imagine my surprise when the name wasn’t taken (more on this soon), I found out that a new friend of mine is starting a healing centre next year and is looking for Reiki people (I’m sort of a Reiki person, and I know a lovely Reiki person), and I discovered all kinds of magical connection and synchronicity on the internet just by following my instincts.  Oh, and as you already know, I made a dreamboard (funny story about that…the other day we were driving along and I looked up at the car in front of us…and there I saw ONE OF THE PHOTOS FROM MY DREAMBOARD.  Not even kidding.  See?  Magic).  And then on Saturday I held my third Groove Back event and opened the floor for further expansion (which means that if you live in Halifax and you’re interested and you let me know…YOU can come!). It was a beautiful week.

So as we moved into this week I really wanted to pick an intention that would perfectly encapsulate the way I wanted to be.  It once again took me a while, but the one I settled on is {Centre}. Last week was a magical whirl, but it’s left me feeling a little frantic and a little head-y.  It’s time to get grounded, get out of my head, to breathe and BE and let things come (because, I’ll admit it, I’m still holding on to a little of the {faith} and {possibility} from last week ;-P). There are so many things I could totally freak out about…but WHY? Stay centred, stay grounded, and trust things to come clear -that’s my intention for this week.


Wishcasting Wednesday: How do you Wish to Spend Some Time?

Today’s Wishcasting Wednesday prompt is “How do you wish to spend some time?”

I love this prompt because it’s such a perfect fit with my day-to-day life.  I’m a stay-at-home mom to an afternoon-napping toddler.  I have very limited-but-clearly-defined ME-time: naps, the occasional TV show, and bath time (sometimes after-bedtime too, depending on what my husband’s up to that night).  So the question of how I wish to spend my time comes up CONSTANTLY.  “OK…how should I spend this chunk of downtime?  Should I blog?  Should I work on my novel?  Should I haul out the marketing books and FINALLY revamp my business?”  It’s just part of my routine.

I’m in Hour Two of today’s nap, and I can tell you: I wish to spend some time connecting with my essence and applying that connection to my Big Dreams.  It’s about remembering the core of me and envisioning a future that reflects that perfectly.  I’ve already spent some time doing that today…but my wish is to be able to do this more -more often and more deeply.  This is the source of my business.  This is where my vision comes from.  I wish to spend some time CONNECTING and DREAMING.

Full Moon Dreamboard: August

Even though I’ve been following Jamie Ridler for months now, this is my first-ever Full Moon Dreamboard.  This month Jamie told us to use our intuition as we were finding images, and -as I did this at the very last minute and had only Google for help- I did just that! With an episode of Avatar: The Last Airbender on to distract Xander, I quickly typed any word I that came to mind into Google’s image search.  Then I saved any that stood out.  I sorta kinda LOVE what came out of it.

Here’s my Full Moon Dreamboard.  I don’t know what it all means yet, but I know that it makes me shiver with genuine joy when I look at it:
