What's been good for you this week? For me it was hosting The Wise Women Wednesday Panel, hosting a Lunch and Learn and making the first Wise Women podcast Interview! If you want to support this project we are still looking for backers who want to advertise on our podcast. Is that you and your business? If you have questions you can always shoot me an e-mail.
Here are this week's five things!
1) Mother's day was last Sunday and it's a "holiday" that I have a long list of challenges with but a friend sent me this beautiful New York Times Article Our Mothers as we Never Saw Them". Maybe you'll enjoy it too?
2) Did you catch the Wise Women Wednesday Panel did you miss it? You can watch it in person and I'll make you the same offer I made our live audience. I'm offering a FREE 30-minute coaching call to anyone who e-mails me this weekend putting the three things you'd like to work with a coach on, in the subject line.
3) This Ted Talk: Succulence is Powerful, so is being a succulent wild woman. I love her idea of letting your inner wise self write you a love letter.
4) The book that I consider my bible "The Artist's Way" I'm constantly going back to this book, and it's tools.
5) "You've always had the power my dear, you just had to learn it for yourself". -The Wizard of Oz

When you’re too scared to make a decision or to take a new path, think of the worst-case scenario that could happen. It’s almost always not really that scary. Facing fear head-on makes it less frightening!
The last few law of attraction meditations have been a big hit, so I've made you another based on what Abraham calls Segment Intending. That's the practice of deliberately stopping between different parts of your day, taking a mindful moment and calling to mind the type of experience you want to have. It's my hope this meditation will inspire you to craft a life filled with the experiences and interactions you want to cultivate in the world. This meditation is 9 minutes 34 seconds.
I'm heading north, driving to OH to see family as you read this! My sister and brother-in-law are back from India and it will the first time that my whole immediate family has been together in the last two year. I'm really overjoyed and I hope that you have something that wonderful to look forward to as well, but in the mean time here are this week’s 5 things!
“Remember that whatever you go through, no matter how sucky, complicated, or exhilarating, is laying the groundwork for something else. It’s all stepping stones, and they’re all necessary.”
Today's meditation is all about healing. Healing something physical or emotional. This meditation is 10 minutes and 18 seconds. It's not the best sound recording ever but I liked what I said too much to re-record it. I hope the sound blips and the random fireworks from the stadium by my house aren't too distracting. I also hope it brings you peace and well-being.
I believe sharing this as a female is not only important but also a radical act of protest against the patriarchy. A radical act against a system that’s tried to tell women to toughen up and grow a thicker skin when this is precisely what often makes us really damn tough already.

“It was as if I got a permission slip backed by science to allow myself to be more childlike, to embrace the pretty rock because it actually does have magical healing powers.”
“I am enjoying getting to know this part of me that has always been there that is now able to grow and evolve in this period of my life.”
