It’s a peaceful summer morning in the coolness of my barn. The horses are quietly enjoying their morning breakfast. It is here that I find my zen mind – my zen body – the place where all deep awareness is born and lives. There’s a small single baby barn swallow in the rafters awaiting her momma’s return with her baby bird breakfast of worms and seeds. As I sweep the corners of the stall where she was born, she bravely pokes her head above the nestline, driven by her growing courage and curiosity in who I am. I whisper a quiet, “Good morning little one – I’ve been wondering when I would get to meet you.”
Recently one client gratefully expressed how excited she was for all that was manifesting in her life, sharing that she had discovered the energy of “relaxing into the goal.” She described it as everything is happening in perfect timing and is coming to her so effortlessly!
Seeking the conversations with our essence – our inner guide – changes the conversations and changes the circumstances. By shifting what we focus on, we breathe life into the new possibilities deemed important by our inner soul. It helps us uncover why we are here on this earth and what gifts we are to share with others.
With the new year underway, I hope you find yourself in lightness of heart – with visions of possibilities to unfold. For me, it’s not about New Year resolutions, but more about choosing how I want to show up for each day. In awareness, abundance, peace and joy. It’s not to say that everyday works that way. This week brought its fair share of first trials and tribulations of the year for me.
What’s next? It’s on the minds of many these days! Kids heading off to college, parents experiencing empty nests for the first time. With the early signs of Fall, we’re reminded that 2013 isn’t far, and we naturally begin to ponder paths into the new year. Where will it take us? It’s often these kinds of thoughts that set new directions… a next life chapter. It’s the brave souls that ask these questions and find the way to move into their desires.
A few months ago, I set out with the goal of surveying 100 successful professional women. I knew from my conversations I was having with women everyday that many of them were starting to think about their next chapter – after years of hard work, diligence and balancing life across professional careers and home – they were starting to hear that call for something more.
I wanted to learn more about what was calling these women. So I launched the survey You Version 2.0 – Discover Your Next Chapter to gauge what’s top-of-mind when these seasoned professionals think about what’s next!

I was thrilled to have Channel 4 News Anchor cover Syzygy last week!
