Freedom Quote

FreedomWe have come across a plethora of quotes and love sharing them because they make us think and definitely inspire. This time, we want to share what Marilyn Ferguson said, “Ultimately, we know deeply that the other side of every fear is a freedom.”

Is this timely right now or what?!! Is U.S. politics based on fear or freedom? Does it make a difference who is the “leader” at the helm?

We are also aware that if you feel fear, music (especially the harp!!) can help you go to that scary place to feel it and release it, moving into freedom. Here’s to your freedom…!

Daily Suggestions…

Calm & TrustI write two blogs (yes, one isn’t enough!!!). After I posted the below list on the other blog (www.WomenAsHealers.com), I had many e-mail responses saying how much they loved this list. So, I decided to post it here, too … enjoy!

  1. Pray.
  2. Go to bed on time.
  3. Get up on time so you can start the day unrushed.
  4. Say “No!” to projects that don’t fit into your schedule.
  5. Delegate tasks to capable others.
  6. Simplify and unclutter your life.
  7. Remember:  Less is often more.
  8. Allow extra time to do things and to get to places (so true with traffic).
  9. Pace yourself. Spread out big changes and difficult projects over time.
  10. Take one day at a time.
  11. Live within your budget; don’t use credit cards for ordinary purchases.
  12. Be proactive.
  13. Do something for your inner child each day.
  14. Carry a spiritually enlightening book with you to read while waiting.
  15. Get enough rest.
  16. Eat right.
  17. Get organized so everything has its place.
  18. Listen to a tape while driving that can help improve your quality of life..
  19. Write down thoughts and inspirations.
  20. Every day, find time to be alone.
  21. Laugh.
  22. Laugh some more! (Love this!!)
  23. Develop a forgiving attitude (most people are doing the best they can).
  24. Be kind to unkind people (they probably need it the most).
  25. Talk less; listen more.
  26. Slow down.
  27. Every night before bed, think of five things you are grateful for and make sure one is something you’ve never mentioned before.

Turning 30…

That’s when I started playing the harp … really! (If I told you how many years I’ve been playing, I would tell you my age!!) I was in a painful place in my life and gave myself harp lessons for my 30th birthday. I hadn’t ever given myself a gift before turning 30, but that year it was really important for my heart.

I love to share this story when I speak, hoping it inspires others to learn something new and follow their dreams. I’ve had many people come up to me afterwards and say, “You inspired me. I’ve always wanted to __(fill in the blank)___ and even though I’m long-past 30, I want to make my dream come true.”

What do you dream of learning? Regardless of your age, now is the time!!
