Scared, Angry, Exhausted? This one’s for YOU!

With the turbulence and stress of the world right now, it is easy to get sucked into that chaos and lose connection with your heart and who you truly are.

That happens to me occasionally, I must admit. Recently, I felt SO angry after reading a news article, that I blasted something out on Facebook and stalked around fuming for most of the day.

Anger is not a usual feeling or expression for me. As a Projector, I’m more likely to go into resentment or simply ignore something to protect my energy. But this was pure, powerful, reactive anger. [continue reading…]

Notes from the Void: How did I get here and what do I do next?

The Void* is that space between what was and what will be. That interim time and place where you leave behind what isn’t working, but what’s next has not yet emerged. It’s a time of transition. Re-calibrating. Realigning. Allowing. Surrender.

Not the “giving up” kind of surrender. It’s the “I know I’m not in charge” surrender that gracefully allows the universe to nudge and guide. [continue reading…]

We were made for these times . . .

posted 2020-04-08 during coronavirus pandemic

My dear friend, shaman Alana Blusol, sent me this beautiful message written by Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes in 2001. It touched me deeply and is so relevant for giving us hope, inspiration, and empowerment during the global and personal upheavals we face these days. I wanted to share it with you in the hope that you, too, will find these words inspiring and empowering.

Mis Estimados Queridos, My Esteemed Ones:

My friends, do not lose heart. We were made for these times.

I have heard from so many recently who are deeply and properly bewildered. They are concerned about the state of affairs in our world now. Ours is a time of almost daily astonishment and often righteous rage over the latest degradations of what matters most to civilized, visionary people.

You are right in your assessments. The lustre and hubris some have aspired to while endorsing acts so heinous against children, elders, everyday people, the poor, the unguarded, the helpless, is breathtaking. Yet, I urge you, ask you, gentle you, to please not spend your spirit dry by bewailing these difficult times. Especially do not lose hope. Most particularly because, the fact is that we were made for these times. Yes. For years, we have been learning, practicing, been in training for and just waiting to meet on this exact plain of engagement.

I grew up on the Great Lakes and recognize a seaworthy vessel when I see one. Regarding awakened souls, there have never been more able vessels in the waters than there are right now across the world. And they are fully provisioned and able to signal one another as never before in the history of humankind.

Look out over the prow; there are millions of boats of righteous souls on the waters with you. Even though your veneers may shiver from every wave in this stormy roil, I assure you that the long timbers composing your prow and rudder come from a greater forest. That long-grained lumber is known to withstand storms, to hold together, to hold its own, and to advance, regardless.

In any dark time, there is a tendency to veer toward fainting over how much is wrong or unmended in the world. Do not focus on that. There is a tendency, too, to fall into being weakened by dwelling on what is outside your reach, by what cannot yet be. Do not focus there. That is spending the wind without raising the sails.

We are needed, that is all we can know. And though we meet resistance, we more so will meet great souls who will hail us, love us and guide us, and we will know them when they appear. Didn’t you say you were a believer? Didn’t you say you pledged to listen to a voice greater? Didn’t you ask for grace? Don’t you remember that to be in grace means to submit to the voice greater?

Ours is not the task of fixing the entire world all at once, but of stretching out to mend the part of the world that is within our reach. Any small, calm thing that one soul can do to help another soul, to assist some portion of this poor suffering world, will help immensely. It is not given to us to know which acts or by whom, will cause the critical mass to tip toward an enduring good.

What is needed for dramatic change is an accumulation of acts, adding, adding to, adding more, continuing. We know that it does not take everyone on Earth to bring justice and peace, but only a small, determined group who will not give up during the first, second, or hundredth gale.

One of the most calming and powerful actions you can do to intervene in a stormy world is to stand up and show your soul. Soul on deck shines like gold in dark times. The light of the soul throws sparks, can send up flares, builds signal fires, causes proper matters to catch fire. To display the lantern of soul in shadowy times like these – to be fierce and to show mercy toward others; both are acts of immense bravery and greatest necessity.

Struggling souls catch light from other souls who are fully lit and willing to show it. If you would help to calm the tumult, this is one of the strongest things you can do.

There will always be times when you feel discouraged. I too have felt despair many times in my life, but I do not keep a chair for it. I will not entertain it. It is not allowed to eat from my plate.

The reason is this: In my uttermost bones I know something, as do you. It is that there can be no despair when you remember why you came to Earth, who you serve, and who sent you here. The good words we say and the good deeds we do are not ours. They are the words and deeds of the One who brought us here. In that spirit, I hope you will write this on your wall:

When a great ship is in harbor and moored, it is safe, there can be no doubt. But that is not what great ships are built for.

– Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Ph.D
– Author of the best seller Women Who Run with the Wolves

May you be well and safe and loving and fierce in these important times.

Let’s put some context around this craziness…

[written 3/20/20 about the coronavirus pandemic]

First, let me give you a virtual hug. In these days of social distancing I miss the closeness and affection of hugs and cheek kisses. (I’m half French… cheek kisses are important!)  Hugs are very healthy for us… except under these unusual circumstances.

I hope you are staying well and calm. Fear, worry, panic, anxiety, despondency all drain our immune system… just at a time when we need our immune system to stay as strong as possible.

I thought it might be helpful to put some bigger-picture context around this pandemic and the related disruptions it’s causing in life as we knew it. It’s the unknown that causes the most stress, and having some context takes a little of the uncertainty and feeling of “free fall” out of the picture.

The context I’m referring to is the 2027 Solar Plexus Mutation that Ra Uru Hu foretold. [continue reading…]

New Group for Reflectors! Explore and grow with fellow Reflectors

I recently reached out to a colleague, Leslie vanWinkle, who is a Reflector and a Human Design Specialist, about creating an opportunity for Reflectors to be together and learn together.

She is excited and moving forward with putting together an online group where Reflectors can:

  • come together and support each other
  • learn how to decondition and release the influence of other people and the environment (without getting overwhelmed and hijacked by the energy of others), and
  • explore how Reflectors can step into their unique role in service to their communities.

If learning more about (and possibly joining) this group is something that appeals to you, please send an email to:
Leslie vanWinkle at  humandesign4lm@gmail.com   (the “lm” in the address stands for Life Mastery)

Leslie has created a Facebook group that is open to Reflectors and family members/loved ones of Reflectors, with more events in the planning stages. Input and co-creation from group members is welcomed!

She has a handout that is particularly useful for Reflectors, which she will send to you along with directions for how to join the Facebook group. (Just give her a few days; as a Reflector, she follows her own internal timing).

In your email to Leslie, please tell her a bit about yourself.  For example:

When did you learn you were a Reflector?  How has that affected your life?  Have you had a Human Design Reading yet?  What’s your biggest challenge as a Reflector (or as the ally of a Reflector?

She is looking forward to connecting with each of you and inviting you into the group.

Support Group for Projectors! You’re invited to the Empowered Projector Movement

If you are a Projector (or love a Projector), please join our ongoing discussion group about how to be an empowered Projector.

Fellow Projector Robin Gallob has teamed up with me to create a safe space to explore what really supports and makes a difference for Projectors.

This is the first public appearance of the Empowered Projector Movement—an idea I’d been quietly nurturing for about a year.

The group is open to Projectors and those who love Projectors. It’s completely free and there is no obligation.

It is a closed Facebook group, so you’ll need to click the link below to request to join. You’ll be asked 3 questions so we can learn a little about you before you’re given access.

There are some GREAT discussions going on right now, and everyone is learning so much from each other’s experiences.

As moderators, Robin and I occasionally post discussion questions, and we encourage sharing, exploration, and engagement with the group. Our role is to listen, facilitate, and support. Excellent “real world” issues get posted by members, which elicit experiences, wisdom, and resources from fellow members. It’s a treasure trove of insights and support!

Our purpose with this group is to empower as many Projectors as possible—because the world needs as many empowered Projectors as it can get!!

Projectors have a vital role to play in the consciousness evolution of humanity. We need to feel and be SELF-empowered so we can correctly guide others. And so we can have a great life in the process! Martyrdom is NOT an option.  😉

Quick Tip: You Don’t Have to “Go it Alone”

Human Design shows us that only a very few of us (less than 9% – the Manifestors) don’t NEED others to make things happen in the world. This also means that the large majority of us are DESIGNED for interactions and relationships.  And even Manifestors love and interact with others… they just don’t NEED them.

Even Hermits (2/4, 2/5, 5/2, and 6/2 Profiles) are designed to be “called out” of their hermit-ness for the built-in, natural balance of solitude and human interactions that they need to thrive in their lives.

Okay, so we live in a matrix of interactions with each other. So why do we feel so alone sometimes? Maybe even feel abandoned by friends, family, loved ones, God… especially when we need them most?

My theory is that we isolate ourselves because we feel broken and unworthy.   [continue reading…]

Quick Tip: Coping with life and death…

A few years ago, over the span of a few months two people who are dear to me made their transition back to nonphysical. They “passed away” as we often say.

It was hard to watch them go down hill over the weeks that I had the privilege of being with each of them until the day they passed.

While we each have our unique Human Design that influences how we experience and interpret what happens to us and around us, there may be some aspects to coping with life (and death) that are perhaps more universal.

As I’ve reflected on these experiences, I realized that there were several things that helped me cope with the whole process… and I thought I’d share them with you with the hope and intention that they may be of help to you, too.   [continue reading…]

Quick Tip: Words Don’t Teach, Only _______ Teaches

The other day I was visiting a good friend and we both received the same email asking for a donation to help another friend who was in need. My friend’s first reaction was that her income was limited right now and she just couldn’t afford to give any money away.

The next morning she said she had thought about it and realized she had been coming from a place of lack. And living a lack-based life wasn’t what she wanted to do or who she wanted to be. So she made a donation… with love and good will in her heart and a genuine spirit of generosity.

What struck me about this… and why I’m sharing this with you… is [continue reading…]

[Self-Love] Great tool for you… and it’s NOT Human Design!

I came across this “tool” several years ago and find it very useful for myself and my coaching clients, so I wanted to share it with you. It will help with your progress toward Self-Love. And most of us need all the help we can get with that!

Here’s why this tool is relevant to Self-Love:  the first key to Self-Love is SELF-AWARENESS.

While Human Design is absolutely brilliant in the self-awareness department, there are a few other tools that are also helpful.

I like this one because it is a self-assessment that you can use anytime, for any purpose, and completely tailor it for YOUR needs and desires. It also helps you track your progress and shows you visually where you are the most out of balance.   [continue reading…]
