Re-Claim Your Self

Two days ago I was part of a Golden Crown Activation.  The Golden Crown Chakra is above your head (not part of what we typically consider our bodies) – often it is shown as a veil or small Buddha.  Opening it is essential to creating a greater connection with the divine and it is a powerful activation. My dear friend Lydia Van den Broeck is amazing at moving the energy and clearing blockages.  

It became obvious that I had shifted greatly and I have been putting the new me into perspective. I find that a big piece of this is re-claiming myself! I had begun, as you may have, to drift away from the essential me. I work with so many people to help them discover their true self, their futures and their paths that I had forgotten myself. 

Like the shoe maker I was walking around in raggy shoes and spending my time creating lovely new ones for others. What I am re-claiming is this. To perfect myself – to reclaim more fun and joy – to spend more time in this realm of spiritual bliss than I was doing. I have re written my bio and focus for Keen (a way to make an appointment or see if I am online for readings), I am fully opening myself up and I will be even more inline with the messages from our guides. 

My dragons are applauding!  They had been calling me to do more readings and to write more. Both are my personal way to growth.  I am looking forward to helping more of you re-claim yourselves. 

Love, Light and Laughter

Amazing Times!!

Being in the flow is such an amazing wonderful feeling. Perhaps the most astounding is how quickly things manifest. I am getting very careful about what I put out for myself because it keeps appearing.

I sat down with Bob and mediated on abundance. We followed that with a serious discussion about finances and exactly how much I needed to bring in for us to live together comfortably.  We figured a monthly amount and did the math to come up with a need number of hours of work.  That was Monday night a few weeks ago.

That same week Wednesday  afternoon — I recieved a call out of the blue from a friend that I hadn’t heard from in years. She had work more than my needed amount!  Less than two days and the money was found.

And it keeps coming – it is as if a stream has started of additional opportunities! All focused on Virtual Freedom and the internet. I am loving it all.  Let me know how you are manifesting and what works!

It is all good.


Free — I bet t…

Free — I bet that word got your attention! But I mean it. You need help out there and that’s what this site , the book and other VF resources are all about. But you may not have the budget to do all the things that need getting done. Here are several ways to create a marketing team with out it costing you anything.

First who would you need – or who would you want? As a sole-entrepreneur you are used to doing it all! You may very well like having control over all the facets of your business but marketing is about making connections.

The late great ADHD Coach Ken Zaretzky said “Discover who has your customers that you are not in competition with.”

They will be great assets as your team. In turn think about what you can give them. Will they want to send you customers because it is a benefit to them? A doctor might refer particular personal trainers because they know their techniques are effective. Contact these possible team members, introduce your self, if possible offer samples.

Next is the Join Venture. Joint Ventures are a partnership. It might be adding your logo and expertise to an event, as a facilitator. It might be partnering with a similar but not competing product lines. A wedding photographer might add a Make Up Artist to mailings. This would be an added value for clients and could be offered as a discounted promotion. Image

Talk it up — Let others know what you do and who you help. We like working with our friends, sending referrals to people that we personally know. So add your friends and neighbors to the Team. Ask them what they do, offer to visit their place of business or share ideas with them. Usually they will respond in turn and ask you.
Suggest partnerships. Call people that might be good to know and ask if they would like to have coffee. I spent a month focusing on calling and visiting with others in my industry. I didn’t know them but had perhaps met at a meeting. I just called and asked if they were free to just chat.
By sharing industry information with others you may find unexpected marketing allies.  When I was Life Coaching and working exclusively with Parents. I found several other coaches who called me and referred families.
And finally there is the age old system of barter!  We often think of this as service for service or product for product, but consider using it as an inexpensive affiliate system.  What can you give away for five referrals? Buy one – a friend gets one free… these are all ways to leverage what your business is and to get a word of mouth started.
Marketing is getting the word out but better yet it is getting the client in the door and buying!

I’d love to learn about your creative process!

Dreams are illustrations from the book your soul is writing about you.

                                                              — Marsha Norman  

Funny, many of my dreams are novels. I have characters, plot lines and conflict. Rarely am I in my dreams. Instead it is like reading a good book or watching a gripping television show. I am drawn into the scene as an observer.

Others tell me that this is unusual but it is the way it has always been. Perhaps that is why the quote caught my attention. I just came back from my meeting of the Milwaukee Writer’s Circle and am thinking about my fiction pieces. None of them came from my dreams but I am sure that I process the story lines as I sleep and awake with new ideas. New ways that my heroes and heroines want to be portrayed.

Share your muse, your way of creating.  I’d love to learn about your creative process!

I had a discussion tonight about how difficult some people find it to get started. how difficult they find creating something from nothing. but for me it is so easy. Just give me a pen, paper or a computer and I fill the blank space with words.

Stress and Scares

ImageA friend just called me the eye of the hurricane. He meant that despite the chaos all around I am usually calm and cheerful. Of course this is most of the time. 

I make an effort to redirect my negative thoughts. I tell my clients one trick is to mentally say STOP. Check yourself. Don’t allow the negative stream to continue. 

On occasion there are a lot of stops. I am sure my mind would look like a lurching car. Stop -Go-Stop-Go…and so on.  But in the end using this technique and others – I am able to maintain an aura of calm and patience.  I breathe, smile and move forward in a way that others remark on. 

The thing is this isn’t a feat unique to me. It is something that you can do to! Many of my clients ask for tools that fit their individual lives. I find that once they begin to practice these – they work! 

It is when the stress and scary thoughts are laid to rest that you find the ability to grow, to enjoy and to allow joy in.  It is amazing how the empty cracks are filled with happiness and self esteem. It is what I love about coaching! Watching this shift.  

Welcoming the Dead

From the Thursday’s Bite on Jessica Aspen Writes:                                                    



Today I’m welcoming Keridak Kae to Jessica Aspen Writes. Keridak’s new book,Protection for the Inner and Outer Self is a non-fiction guide that includes stories and techniques for psychic self-protection.

Welcome the Dead

It’s the time of year when the veil between the spirit world and our world thins.  Are you ready to welcome your guests: the spirits of loved ones, friends, pets or perhaps others?  What is your role as hostess? How do you become Martha Stewart to the un-bodied?






I attended the Milwaukee Writer’s Circle BBQ the other night.  Author Anthony Alston, our host, shared how he used music to influence and to forward his creativity.  The group of us listened to one of his original compositions and wrote while he played the piano.  Each of us was moved, even the guest non writers; each of us wrote a piece.

It was amazing the themes of love came through yet it was vastly different for each of us.  Music led us to be more introspective and to blend the feelings into words.

In the past we have used starting sentences, pictures and themes to begin a writing project.  My short story Across, originated from one of these exercises.

Creativity can be ignited from anything.  A thought, a touch. a smell can all start your mind on a train of thought that takes on a life of it’s own.  Children do this easily, they move from fantasy to reality, often blending the two.  Allow yourself to become more creative.  You don’t have to write or compose – just start to allow new thoughts to enter.

Heddy Keith, the founder of the Milwaukee Writer’s Circle, talked about using “What if…”  This can be applied to your own life. What if I added cinnamon to my breakfast cereal? What if I turned here, just to see where it leads.  What if I called…  the potential is endless.  You may find that a little creativty will add interest and excitement to your life.

Let me know how it changes or enhances the days for you.

A Little Bit…

Even in today’s crazy world a little bit can go a long way. Cliche, you may be thinking but really it is true.  Imagine a a few small moments.   Consider how you feel now and how you feel afterwards. Add to the list and create your own small tidbits of joy, peace or pleasure.

  • Smile — share one with anyone.
  • Imagine a loved one, especially during a fun or bonding experience.
  • Bring back the smell of cookies baking.
What are your small moments? Please share them with us…
Love, Light and Laughter

Look No Hands!!
