My oh my I love how the Universe works. For months, MONTHS, I have been “meaning” to start writing more on my blog(s). I even signed up for a second round in a month-long Blog Challenge (to write 20 blogs in one month), and did I get to even one? Nope. Nada. And I feel completely guilty. The funny thing is, I have huge lists of what I want to write about in my head (and I tell people this ALL the time!), but do I get around to writing? No.
Part of my challenge is time. Part of my challenge is the thought of “What if people don’t like what I have to say?” or judge me for speaking up. And even though I know both of these things are not true, I’m a procrastinator to the Nth degree. I fully own this fact.
BUT … being a writer my entire life (my grandmother bragged about the stories I would write her when I was little), I do have a deep NEED to write not only for myself but publicly. Intuitives and psychics (and clients) have told me countless times, “Where is that book of yours?!” So when my dear friend Kelli Spencer asked me if I wanted to participate in a Blog Hop, I laughed and said, “Yes.” Laughed because of my intentions of wanting to write more, and now this will FORCE me to write. Since she asked, I have felt more juice to write and have already started on my list. And these questions are just perfect to help me jumpstart.
Kelli may not know it, but she’s been a great catalyst for my life in many ways. She’s a gifted intuitive and channel, health coach, and shaman. Last fall I had a reading with her that was filled with so much information and details and resources that it is still actively working its way in my life. She is just authentically clear and aware of how to help people move forward in their life. If I hadn’t had that reading last fall, I would not be doing half of what I am doing right now. Her open hearted manner helps everyone feel at ease. So thank you to Kelli for this writing jumpstart!
On to the questions … (by the way, I think ALL the questions where meant to be about writing, but obviously I didn’t go there. Oh well!)
1. What Am I Working On?
Haaaa haaa, the question is more like what am I NOT working on? As an Aries, I always have about 15 projects going at once, both personally and professionally. At the moment I am updating one of my websites, editing photo’s for my online shop, editing video’s for a series on Presence online magazine, writing and planning for a supersecret but really big project, and working on clients websites and email lists. Add in orders to ship out to customers, weeding my garden, clearing clutter from my house, and doing fun summer things like farmers markets and live outdoor music, I am busy from sun-up to sun-down. But I love every minute of it. Truly.
2. How Does My Work Differ From Others Of The Same Genre?
My work is in helping people find clarity, whether that is through a personal session to brainstorm their business, a sound healing, or helping them find a new crystal or energetic mist. It’s my passion to be CLEAR in all ways in my own life and business, which means having clear thoughts about the truth of where I am at, even if the truth is hard (for example, am I being judgmental towards a family member about how they live their life? Do I want to judge, no, so I look at my own life considering the same situation. Do I feel judgement towards myself and my life? OR is there a stagnant energy between myself and a client around money? It’s for both our benefits to be honest and open and direct about what my expectations are with the situation. Having clarity means I do my own inner work around emotions and relationships, etc. When I have true clarity in every aspect of my life, things FLOW and are created with ease and joy and LOVE. It’s amazing! And I love helping clients gain clarity as well. My work can seem bold and pushy and “in your face” at times, but believe me, I do it all with such intent and deep love and compassion.
3. Why Do I Write What I Do?
I write what I do because my heart tells me to write it. Sharing about moving your life or business forward gives me great joy. I want to be a guide for people that might be just starting out or who may be seeking a new perspective. My life is usually an open book and I want to share my own experiences so others can learn (since this is how I personally learn as well) and live a joyful, fulfilled life as well.
4. How Does My Writing Process Work?
Most of the time, I write on the fly. I sit down and just write it all out. I edit very little. I write just like I speak. Once in a while I will start getting the words to something while I am going to sleep or waking up, and I have learned that if I don’t write those down, it’s gone. And boy have I had some profound and amazing words just disappear right back into the ethers! Darn! But I love how I write and hope it is helpful to others.
There it is. A bit of disclosure about me for you.
There are two friends I am handing the baton to for their own round of these questions.
Tammy Heath Pierson (aka TK Dunn) is a longtime friend (I can’t even tell you the exact moment we met, she just kind of was *there* in my life) and business associate. Our friendship really started when we both wanted to create a mastermind group for our businesses, so we did. The group has fallen apart but we still brainstorm daily about what’s best for our businesses. She is a highly gifted palm reader and intuitive, remote viewer, life coach, and real estate agent. Tammy has so many life experiences to share and just keeps striving for more, which is inspiring. You can find info on her real estate services here and here too.
Yvonne Rosenlund, a friend in Sweden, has been in my life for many years as well thanks to a mutual friend. Yvonne’s gifts as a seer and artist are so uniquely wonderful, and I have been honored to be part of online conversations with her wise and authentic self. I learn so much from her deep wisdom and her beautiful Zendala’s, and the fact that she’s Swedish just makes me happy too (I’m 1/8 Swede!).
I hope you’ll visit both of their sites and blogs soon, and a week from today they’ll both have a post similar to this one available to you.
