This journey I’ve been on for 141 weeks now, this life I’ve lived since my mission was given to me at age nine, has been a veryyyyyy long journey. I know I have contributed to many people along the way AND I’m ready and wanting/intending to move forward now and get on to the next phase 🙂
On the freeway
This darkness somehow comforting
One with a long stream of lights
Rite of passage
the old doesn’t fit
can’t run back to it
Somehow there’s nothing to go back to
It just doesn’t fit anymore
Death to it
Familiar relationships that limit
Joy and enthusiasm dancing
what doesn’t work
Patience and trust wavering
Will it come?
Passageway narrowing, closing in
Dreams and visions
Long and tiring journey
Ready for the task

What makes you happy? What are your dreams? What are goals you have been ready to give up on? What else is possible?
I have spent 35+ years working on, researching and attempting to fund a destination international wellness center/resort/learning center/community. My long time mission statement is “To inspire individuals to rediscover wonder and joy”. My idea about wellness goes way beyond just merely having a healthy body, as my long time career of being a holistic/spiritual therapist has shown that wellness isn’t just the absence of illness. Wellness implies the totality of emotional, mental, physical and spiritual well being. And this needs to take place within a well environment.
I have long felt that for individuals to be truly well, they need the skill set and structure of a well family, well companies, well cities, well countries and a well world. One affects the other and ripples outward. So the focus of my wellness center is to support, inspire and teach individuals, families, companies and communities what it takes to truly be well. This includes healing our water, our air, our soil, and growing healthy sustainable food; educational systems that support the individual learner in a healthy way; music, art, dance, creativity to uplift and transform; healthy communication and social skills that support healthy relationships with self and others; deep spiritual attunement that underpins the knowledge that we truly are ONE, thus we co-create a world of peace and cooperation.
I am ready to claim the fulfillment of this dream I have worked on for so long, and held in my heart since childhood.
The time is now for us to step into our power, fulfill our dreams for ourselves and the world.
So, what are you ready to bring forth?
In 1978 I was living in Prescott and ended up buying 5 acres 12 miles out Williamson Valley Road, and building a house for myself. I hired the man from whom I had purchased the land. He was a contractor who supposedly knew what he was doing. I also hired my across the dirt road neighbor and a man from town to help us. I dug holes, mixed concrete and carried big blocks. I had big dreams for the home and land, seeing it as the fulfillment of the vision I had been given that I was to create a wellness center and community. As was my pattern, I believed in dreams, not looking at the current reality.
The physical experience of building the house was thrilling, as I pushed myself more than I ever had, discovering strength and muscles I never knew I had before. I loved the initial backhoe work as we dug a big hole, to create a home partially underground. I had great dreams of providing a stable community for my son to grow up in but that wasn’t to be. The neighbor and contractor turned against me, and I didn’t have the desire to stand up to their backhanded treatment anymore and also didn’t have the money to finish, as the estimated cost turned out way below what the final cost would be. So I put the roof on and sold the house as is, leaving it to the buyer to finish it.
It is sad and yet gratifying to see the home now finished. Numerous years ago I went inside the home and met the owners. They had turned my south facing greenhouse into a carport but otherwise, it was close to how I had envisioned it. They did scratch their heads over how some things had been done, but were happy with the finished product.
I am learning that sometimes our dreams don’t turn out the way we thought they would and yet they do contribute to how we turn out, and they bring us strengths, qualities and gifts that add to our make up and enhance future dreams and goals. I have no regrets, only gratitude for all I’ve learned, and the path I’ve walked.
When tragedy happens in our lives, our country, our world, it is easy to move into a feelings of fear, hopelessness, dis-empowerment, anger or hopelessness. It is also easy to just read the immediate signs, rather than looking for truth.
As the world goes through it’s transformation now and we are in the midst of taking back control from institutions, governments, companies, and policies that have served to enslave us for so long, keep us feeling weak, and limited; and as we as individuals are in the process of releasing habits, patterns, and beliefs that have kept us feeling small and kept us from the truth of our beings, it can be overwhelming.
Please don’t give up! Please don’t buy into fear within you or the fear that the media so loves to promote.
Please do keep on staying in your heart, feeling your courage, and shining your light for all to see!
Please do keep your mind, heart and soul pointed toward your deepest dreams for yourself and the world.
You will succeed! And it will be worth the effort, dedication and struggles you have gone through.
So when you need to rest and retreat for awhile, do so. And when you are ready, pick yourself up and shine out some more! The world is in need of your light!
