The New Vacation

May 31st, 2011

Thinking about summer almost always brings up the thought  of vacation.  As a child we were living on the East Coast of the U.S. and we always took our vacation on Cape Cod.  I have special memories of deep pine forests, ice cream cones, long bike trails and hot sandy beaches that warmed my toes.  As I embraced the business world, the lines of vacation became more blurred.  During some years time became less available and resources were expended with careful choice.  At the same time the need for rejuvenation still existed.   For me the most important thing has always been that I change my rhythm and pace so that I can begin to hear myself more deeply.  This, for me, is the finest gift of a staycation or of a truly relaxing vacation.    Today with the world moving at such a quick pace, many of my friends and colleagues are reevaluating what they need in a vacation/staycation.  For many this needs to be a block of time set aside for rejuvenation, contemplation and renewal.  That is not to say that the traditional vacation luxury is to be discouraged.  However, many people are being financially frugal or working more than they have in the past.  So what’s a woman to do?  What’s your plan for the summer?   What would be your version of an ideal staycation or vacation?    Join us for a wonderful staycation.  Come to our summer Bubble Bath on June 23rd , June 30th and July 7th from 12:00 noon to 1:30 pm Pacific Time.  Read more about our Bubble Bath at www.theessentialfeminine.com .

Powerful, Focused, Highly Intentional Living

September 14th, 2010

What does life look and feel like when you are living with highly intentionally with focus and power?  Today we read so much about conscious living that the opportunity to look closely at these issues are readily available and provide us with insights that can totally change the quality of our lives.  The world has caught on to the idea that when we choose to live with clear intention and place our focus on this intention our sense of power and overall quality of life excel.

What are the aspects of intentional living that we need to incorporate into our lives or be aware of on a daily basis?  Intentional living begins with a connection to ourselves, our inner voice and our sense of knowing on a daily basis.  From this place of clarity and listening we begin to envision or become clear about what we want to create, be or contribute in a given day.  This leads to a sense of focus and intention that allows us to both measure consciously the things that make up our days and lives, as well as to make choices to refine and improve the way we live. 

We often get a feeling that we are living our lives aligned with the things we love or not.  We often get signs or hunches that lead us to information or help us clarify feelings.  These are gifts and guides that we need to listen to daily.  I suggest having time in the morning in quiet or in contemplation to review what the day could ideally hold. 

I have just started to look at some of the simple beginnings to creating a highly intentional, focused and powerful life.  So many different components including deep inner connection, a clear sense of how we want to live our life (in all areas), a clear sense of what power and contribution meant to us – as they serve as driving forces and give us motivation to design an amazing life. This month we are going to look more closely at highly intentional living as I believe that many of us are clear that this is the only way to live.  On September 22 at noon PST, we will be exploring this topic in The Essential Feminine™ Living Room and during the month of September we will be looking at the different components of an intentional life in our weekly blog.  Stay tuned and join us in the Living Room.  Please register at https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register/861842960.

Creating Success in 2010: Are you Ready for the Most Amazing Year Ever?

December 8th, 2009

Did you ever think of designing an amazing blueprint for your life?  Actually becoming highly intentional instead of reactive, there is a way to do this.  This past month I had the opportunity to facilitate a webinar with thirty women from three continents looking specifically at this issue.

We no longer need to react to life, if we choose to co-create it.  I believe that our intentions guide the way that our life is formed and lived.  When we begin to look at our lives from the perspective of what is working and what is no longer working we get our first indication as to what needs to be changed.  Another indicator that is useful in creating a blueprint for your life is what from the past served you at one time, but no longer serves you today?  Take a moment and evaluate the different beliefs, values, and needs that you have that stem from the past and at one time served you well. Update these beliefs and needs to reflect what you believe and need now.  Too often we live in the past and limit ourselves based on days gone by.

Lastly, begin to notice how you feel doing a given task, spending time with specific people, or in any other area of your life.  How we feel is an indicator as to whether or not we are living our life in alignment with what we enjoy, truly value, and believe.  Living consciously is the only way to go these days, but it takes some practice slowing down and contemplation.  Make time for these things and you will live a life that you choose and desire.  Join us to create your own Women’s Success Blueprint at our two upcoming webinars on January 20 and 27.  Contact us at info@theessentialfeminine.com
