Where I (1) practice the art of brag about all that’s been AH-MA-ZING in my week (yes, yes, it’s the same as gratitude but with a little bit more sexy – because we women don’t toot our horns enough); (2) get clear on my desires and master the art of wish-crafting (yes, yes, it’s the same as prayer, but with a little bit more sexy and 100% honesty – because we women often try to hide our appetites behind piety (3) give a little something away every week (oh yes, it’s my new practice of stepping into my generous red shoes).
Friday’s Art of Brag: Manifesting 101
Yesterday, I asked on Facebook the question: What do you think I do best? What do I have to offer the world? It takes a lot of self-love + bravery mojo to invite the world to tell them how they perceive you, but I did and it was awesome. I was having a hard time seeing my Light yesterday and it helped put me back on the right track.
I went to sleep so soundly that night and woke up with such amazing clarity about who I am and the work I desire to birth into the world. I was in a haze for awhile so this is huge! I woke up knowing exactly who I want to work with, the kind of support I will be needing, the kind of training I want and the kind of hybrid homemaking-mamapreneur life I want to create.
So yes. I celebrate this journey of learning to create the life I truly deeply want.
(And I would LOVE to celebrate my first time teaching in a Nia Jam event! SO.MUCH.FUN. Nia Seattle community is the best in the bunch. So much love. support. and JOY!)
Friday’s Wish-Crafting Practice
- Wish #1: I want regular Date Nights for the Man and me. What I need: line up a babysitter on a regular day. Sounds so easy and simple! Why don’t I do it? Because I think it’s too much work or that we’ll spend too much. But is it worth it? I’m pretty sure it will be. I’m so clear now on how much Pleasure and Joy it will bring to our relationship.
- Wish #2: I want a weekend away for myself. Trickier to manifest. On the surface. Little girl sleeps in her own bed but moves into our room halfway through the night and snuggles up with mama. She will be okay, I know. She is strong, resilient and she is rooted. I need to do this for me. I’ve been needing to do this. I just need to find a weekend and do something where I don’t just hole up in a hotel room somewhere.
- Wish #3: I want to attend the Art of Feminine Presence training in Portland, Oregon later this month. Well, there you go! Wish #2 just got closer to getting manifested! It’s only a 3 day training. It’s only a 3 hour drive away. And my husband can look after my precious on the weekend. The cost isn’t too scary: $700. How to manifest $700? Clearly, I want to do this because I am called to help women come home to themselves, most especially their feminine essence. And I’ve been eye-ing this training for awhile now. Hmmmmm….Well, I already have 1 client booked for this month and another potential client lined up. $300 + $300 = $600! Wooot! There you go!
