As you journey forward on this earth walk; as you come into your own and become a STRONG STANDING WOMAN…. May you always remember….

  • You were created out of love and purpose… NO ONE has ever existed on this earth who has your exact ideas, mixed with your exact personality and gifts, walked your journey, learned and lived your lessons, or has your special way of seeing and doing things… Sometimes, it may seem as though every mark has already been made, that everything has been thought of and that there simply isn’t room for you…but this is untrue…
  • May you always remember that Who you are combined with where you are in your life can help create a situation that will NEVER be duplicated again in all of history… That is the beauty of living in and for the moment… So please my girl… go out and do those things that only you can do….if you do not do those things, they will never be done…. for you, and for all of us. We need the best of you…Sometimes you are the only one on earth who knows the struggles you have had to overcome, the pain you have had to live through, the strength you have had to build and the wisdom you have had to earn. Sometimes you are the only one who knows the depth that is behind your own eyes and soul.
  • May you always remember the importance of giving yourself the kind of respect that you would give to someone else who has lived through all that you have lived through. It is so important that you are compassionate, gentle and patient with yourself… That you continue to remind yourself that you have made it through tough things and you will continue to make it through life lessons…. It is so important that you give yourself credit for the things you have learned so far… and give thanks for the opportunities you have been given to learn… Be fair and kind with this sacred information that you have about yourself…..no one, aside from our Creator, knows what we know about ourselves…and so we must be a careful, responsible and noble guardian over these things.
  • You are worth whatever it takes for you to become a STRONG STANDING WOMAN…. This will mean being respectful, kind, patient and loving to yourself… All things which people learn at different times in their lives… You missed out on these teachings as a child, but are now being blessed by the grandmothers with this wisdom…. To help you along your journey….
  • May you look to the stars and know you have been led down the path of self-discovery… Listen to your heart, listen to the whispers of our Ancestors, and know…. That no matter how much someone loves you…they cannot know what it means to BE you… to have learned and lived all you have on your Sacred Path, and so You must do the work of BEing you… as do I…. as do We…. Because I am with You and You are with Me…. Always and forever my girl…. May You Walk in Beauty…. And know that you never walk alone….

I have spent most of my life searching…for love, purpose and acceptance… And half way through, for happiness and peace…in this search I barked up wrong trees…desperately trying to find what already existed, little did I know, it lived within me… I chased status, money, possessions, the career, popularity, academia, relationships, and power…

The more I chased the further removed I became from myself… The more life challenged me, the more I denied who I was, and the more life became confusing and complicated… And to worldly demands, I became appeasing. Everytime I doubted who I was…or doubted the love of the One behind my creation… I was losing part of ME…

One day, I came to realize I lost it. I lost me and the legacy of where I had come from… In striving for wordly acceptance and perfection, I lost me… I stepped into a world of falsehood… Placing value on all the wrong things and putting my Energy into the wrong places, I tried to ‘plan’ for the future… Which brought worrying about the past…to be ‘responsible’.

I wanted the perfect life, the perfect family, a perfect me… But instead… I was given.. a Journey to walk, full of trials and tribulations… Gracefully given a flawed family to bless me with teachings… and an imperfect me to have a teachable spirit..

My search has since come full circle…and right back to me… My search for love outside of myself, in worldly things and in people is not over, but is in transformation. I try to live In the now and revel in the present… I look inward, to the One, the Greater Energy that lives within me, that IS me. This spirit, this consciousness connects us to other beings, to the pulse of mother earth and all its creations.

This pure Light, this pure energy is a reflection of the universal truth… that we are all One. Our personal truths are ones of beauty, love and creativity… May your light shine bright and let It guide you…When you feel lost, confused or despair, look for it…

This spirit has lived many lives… It holds sacred knowledge… Has seen through many eyes, and will never give up on you… It carries You… If you let it… Know and remember always, my girl, that You are a precious spiritual being… YOU are Loved..

KEYS TO CHANGING COMMUNICATION IN THE 21ST CENTURY

ALWAYS REMEMBER THESE WORDS

“YOU CANNOT TEACH A MAN ANYTHING.  YOU CAN ONLY HELP HIM DISCOVER IT WITHIN HIMSELF”!
Written by: “GALILEO”

  • Understand Emotion and Vulnerability: The world ahead will become more and more people-centered with an emphasis on human rights and dignity.  Messages based on sincerity and genuineness of feeling, using meaningful thoughts and vivid examples, will create the most powerful impact on communication.  Intimacy, well thought out and used with care, allows side-by-side, peer dialogue that fosters a much faster, more sincere form of communication.
  • Communicate by example: As a role model and coach, people will be as you are, not as you say they should be.  Walking the talk is motivation in it’s purest form.  21st Cntury communication will become easier in some respects – just look at email, fax, and the information highway – and harder in the sense that the constant change characterizing the new era will force us to think and communicate at an accelerated level.  Even positive change can be disruptive and can break down communication lines.  How you react to new ways of thinking and working – your “flexibility factor”- is directly related to powerful communication.  People whose lives are out of balance or do not understand the need for balance in those around them do not create an environment for good communication.  Balance in life is role modeled by how we choose to deal with both professional and personal attitudes and beliefs.  The boundary between an individual’s private and public life is a tenuous one.  It is easier to understand and work with the connection than to try to break the interaction.
  • Any input needs a response: With all of the “quickie communication” available to us, which will only increase in the century ahead, an emphasis on response is critical.  Follow-up to a phone call, request, suggestion or completion of assigned work assures that someone is listening. Find other’s “buttons” and encourage them to dialogue.  According to experts, 80% of a business day is spent in communication. 45 % of it is spent in listening.  An effective manager should spend 60% of the day listening.  Build silence into life.  Noise creates constant stress for our bodies, affecting immune systems and health.  Begin by turning volumes down at work and home.  We should create opportunities for ourselves and others for silence.
  • Help others to see the total picture: Communication today will need to address the continuing demand of the worker to know what the total organizational picture is, what is happening to others in the organization and how they are impacted.  Tell them!  What’s the big secret?  Why not operate in the bright, dazzling light of day.  Here it is and this is how it works!  Support organized brainstorming and team/consensus building.  It takes pressure off any one individual, increases productivity and creates “us” projects.
  • Acquire and develop knowledge: It is difficult to be true communicators in today’s world without acknowledging that the base of all communication is knowledge coming from within you.  As we move forward into this century knowledge will be accelerated.  The steps we take now to explore our world—understanding how others think, feel, and act, knowing what is happening around us in all areas of knowledge—will determine the clarity and quality with which we communicate.  Education today is available in an astounding arra of mediums, vehicles and means.  It is within the reach of all of us to extend or vocabularies, minds and our universe.
  • True communication is the world of the adventurer, confronting new things, seeking to enlarge territory, and wanting to expand knowledge, eager to deepen our understanding.
