So How's it going?
Most years I'm one of those people who gets excited about the New Year, ALL of the possibilities and devours hype about opportunities. I meditate about what my word for the year is going to be and I get inspired, motivated and super juiced up about a New Year, New Decade and a New YOU!
NOT THIS YEAR ....
Which is why I haven't emailed you until now!!!
These are my questions to you... How do you get yourself motivated to do what you WANT to do?
Can you allow yourself to feel the hohum?
How do you inspire yourself into action or do you bother?
I've been asking myself these same questions for the first three weeks of 2020.
For me, it's best to take a step back. Look at the bigger picture of what's going on and what's this resistance to doing what I WANT to do...
I, of course, enlist an Intuitive Coach and together we uncover the real reasons I haven't been working on my book.
I'm happy to say that I'm now re-inspired in...
At first glance I just have to say YAY!!! These are awesome cards of prosperity, positive energy and a time to celebrate.
BODY: Sun Salutation - Prosperity . Abundance
As the sun is warming up around here, this card is telling you that you are physically going to receive prosperity and riches. Gratitude is the best way to attract more abundance into your life. Write down 5 things that you are grateful for every day to stay in a beautiful flow of receiving and giving.
MIND: Gesture - Energy . Symbolic
Money is energy that flows in and out of our lives. Any negative energy that you may feel about prosperity comes from limiting beliefs that you continue to believe. This card is reminding you to pour positive, loving, generous energy into all the abundance that you possess!
SPIRIT: Victory Breath - Celebrate . Victorious
Celebrate ALL of your wins, accomplishments and triumphs! If you don't have a tribe to...
Here's what Janice had to say about my last retreat:
"This retreat has been fabulous. The connection is so deep where it will change my life. The morning yoga class is fabulous, doing yoga outside was a bucket list. I am going to go home with a full heart and I feel so at peace and excited for what’s ahead. I felt it was going to be deep and life changing and it was."

Happy Spring Everyone;
I’m back in Canada after a glorious month of travel and adventures!!! The Intuitive Self-Card retreat in Mexico was amazing and transforming for everyone, we’ve already started planning the next one. Let’s us know if you want to be the first to hear when it’s happening!!!
Daren and I are still deep into change and I don’t even know what to tell you except that we are taking it all one experience at a time and finding synchronicity and amusement along the way. We said goodbye to our acreage and home of 18 years, but haven’t left completely! We've decided to take a breather by staying in Grande Prairie for a bit longer to allow us some time to figure things out, open to possibilities and meditate on opportunities. It’s kind of a fun place to be, yet limiting beliefs, fear and questions plague me with each step forward. Time to plant some more seeds!!!
We're well into Spring where we have an...
Charred Asparagus gets all hot and bothered by the briny embrace of feta. Lemons’ astringent bite completes this ménage a trois.
Large bunch asparagus
2 tablespoon Olive Oil
2 lemons (halved)
½ teaspoon fresh ground pepper
½ teaspoon Himalayan sea salt
½ cup feta cheese
In a large bowl lovingly toss asparagus with oil, salt, pepper and lemon halves. Grill on the barbecue until asparagus is tender, crisp, and lemons are charred. Divide evenly onto plates. Top with feta and squeeze scorched lemons all over.

Fresh cracked pepper to taste
½ cup sour cream
