Dream Board 2014 – Reposting by request

ENJOY!

How will you start the new year?  Grab some old magazines, a board, scissors and glue and start creating a dream board for all the wonderful things you would like to create for 2014. This is best done, while listening to music and randomly choosing images that catch your eye. There is no wrong way to create a board. Here is a short video of our very own Sherry Puricelli’s Dream Board. Enjoy.

Feel free to leave a comment or share your dream board with us.

 

 

Is this Love?

“Is this LOVE?” OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThis is our theme for February.  Whether we are talking about loving others or ourselves, we have to look within and see how our heart is doing? Is the heart light and happy? Is it stressed? Is it angry or resentful? Is there a yearning for more? Is it empty? This is a great place to start your search. A lot of people ask me questions regarding their love life. When will I have the love of my life? When will I meet that special someone? What can I do to rekindle my marriage? All these questions can have specific answers but the most common answer is looking within and checking the heart. Are you really ready to meet your partner? Do you still need to heal a past love? What do you need to let go of so you can move forward in love?  These are all things Sherry and I can help you work on. Book your Love Coaching or Love Reading session today. – Love, Glory

I am a Fool

093I love teaching classes and meeting new people. I love witnessing people who are secure and those who strive to be. I love learning about my own inner struggles especially when I am helping other individuals.

But I am a Fool and sometimes I like to fool people. Not intentionally of course. I’ve realized that there are times when I claim to love myself, my body and that I am grateful for this or that and all of it is true, but there is a small judgmental voice that says, “You need to lose weight”, “You need to be a better mom”, “You need to help more, and do more, and be more”.

What is that? I have healed this, why is it showing up again? I have let that go. I have claimed this and embraced that. So what’s the problem?

It dawned on me as I was sitting in my photography class on Tuesday night. My teacher said the most profound thing. He said, “If you are not learning or growing (I added the “growing”) you are dying”. Aha, yes, I agree with this. So, there will always be more work to do on ourselves, but if we stop healing or letting go or claiming, we will die.  This process at this point in my life should be fun with a little hint of dread, but still enjoyable knowing that I am improving and living. I am alive, I am walking and breathing! There are things that I have healed from my past, but there are layers that I am still peeling back and that’s ok, because I heal a little more each time I acknowledge it.

I know this works, because despite that little judgmental voice that appears here and there, I really do live an amazing life. When I look back to 5 years ago, I can see the change in myself for the better and isn’t that what life is about, becoming better versions of ourselves?

So now when that little voice starts taunting me, I take a few moments to question what’s underneath it.  Then I love it, thank it, heal it and release it. If it is really bothering me, it may need a bit more attention and this is when I will create a ritual for it. After a ritual I can really feel a huge shift and I can quickly move on to daily living.

The most important thing for us to remember is that we are human. We need to be gentle with ourselves and know we are always striving to be —–fill in the blank.  That voice is there to judge us but instead of looking at it as judgment, look at it as a nudge, as inspiration to heal, to let go, to change, to be better or to accept what is.  There is no right answer, but whatever you do, don’t keep repeating it over and over again until you believe it….because in reality that voice is there to help,  guide and get us moving instead of making its point. In the end we have the power to work with it to create a new positive voice.  I, myself, am a work in progress with sprinkles of love, peace and truth! How about you?

Questions to ponder….. When you look back at your life, are you happier now? Are you in a better place? If not, why not? When your little voice talks, what does it say? Do you believe it? How can you listen and give it a seat at the table? Can you acknowledge it? Will you work with it to make a change? Will you heal it?

No More Waiting

Longing to be With You

Anticipating the forbidden encounter,
I take this opportunity
to carefully open myself up,
exposing my yearning
and my unkept promises,
revealing my vulnerability
at its core.

I’m here, I witness myself saying hesitantly,
I feel a little nervous and unsure,
for it’s been so long since we’ve last met,
I’ve forgotten how to be with you;

But we’re here now,
together at last,
I hear myself whispering,
just little ole me
in the forbidden encounter,
alone with my soul.   — Sherry Puricelli

January is our month for Self Care. It sounds so easy. Many of us believe we’re already doing it. But are we really? Ask yourself if you’ve been waiting. No? No “after I help my children with …?,” No “as soon as I finish with …?” No “on my first free day?”

Well, being one of the world’s best (or worst) students in this game of self care, after several failing grades, I believe I’m off to a great start … um, well this time!

Today’s lesson on self care is — NO WAITING!

Do something extremely radical to treat yourself. Today, I’m hanging out with me and we’re treating ourselves to a spa treatment! Ooo Yay! Then I’m having champagne with my husband and then we’re heading out to a restaurant for a nice, romantic dinner. Tomorrow morning? I’m sleeping in, then I’m treating myself to two more spa treatments! Now, that’s radical! Or at least it is for me.  Aaahh, together at last!

Wondering how you are doing at self care? What grade would you give yourself?

Living the Dream, Living the Archetype

RE-Posting this article by popular request.
We are back from this year’s IASD Conference. We had a wonderful time. Met great people, attended insightful workshops, classes and presentations. The art show was amazing and experiential. My (Glory’s) favorite part of the week was attending the Dream Ball. We had to dress like one of our dream characters.
Well this year, Sherry, Tzivia and I, had a shared theme that started back in February. The Mother archetype decided to show up in dreams, synchronicities and our retreat. She really wanted to be acknowledged and honored and we did. Sherry, around the same time was working on the Empress card for her tarot deck, Mystic Illumination.
So we decided to once again invite The Mother to our dream ball. I attended as Mother Earth or Gaia. Sherry transformed herself into Lady of Guadalupe, and Tzivia embodied that last part of the poem below as “ME” a synchronicity that hopefully she will write about and share with us soon. Below is the poem that was shared at the Dream Ball written by Sherry Puricelli. I feel so blessed to have been a part of such a lovely, moving, and creative experience. Thank you ladies for sharing your gifts and thank you to the Great Mother.

Mother
 
Mother of cycles,
you are eternal Home to me;
sisters, aunts, mothers, grandmothers,
you’re there for me, always – no matter how far away I fly;
Mother Mary, Mother Earth, Mother of Galaxies,
Mother in my dreams,
you continually cycle back to me…
bringing me home, dancing me home, singing me home,
with empathy, painted – with colorful drops of Mother.
 
When I can’t keep up,
or cannot make the climb, you are the charger of my soul;
when I fall,
You bleed, and reveal your scar so I can learn self-healing;
when I lay broken,
you show me flowers that broke open too,
erupting into gardens of inner beauty;
Whenever I call,
Mother in my dreams,
you continually cycle back to me..
bringing me home, dancing me home, singing me home,
with empathy, painted – with colorful drops of Gaia.
 
When my heart is heavy,
you carry my sorrows and you become my rock;
When I’m missing you,
I hear your lullaby in the mourning doves’ cry.
when I am lost,
your evening star twinkles my inspiration trail.
When I lack faith,
you are my monument, my altar, my prayer,
so I can rediscover my own temple.
Mother in my dreams,
you continually cycle back to me..
bringing me home, dancing me home, singing me home,
with empathy, painted – with colorful drops of Mary.
 
 
Mother of cycles,
you are eternal Home to me;
In the theatre of our mutual dream,
I have buried your key;
We’re dancing rainbows
in timeless time,
spaceless space,
and deathless death;
You’ve been with me always,
since before my first lullaby,
and after my last step.
 
I am Mother in my dreams,
continually cycling back ..
bringing me home, dancing me home, singing me home,
with empathy, painted – with colorful drops of Me.
