My Morning Walks…. July 3, 2013

I recently started a video project where I talk about what has gone through my mind during my morning walk.  And this is big for me and I’ll tell you why:  I have been a professional working actor for 17 years and during that time a certain preparedness was drilled into my head.  Professionalism to me meant to ALWAYS be camera ready.  That means script memorized, hair and make-up flawless and wardrobe top notch.  Going without make and a shower would be simply unheard of… but I wanted something different with these videos.  I wanted to be as raw, open and bare as I could be.  That said I had to be willing to be vulnerable and leave myself alone…. Hence my bare face without a stitch of make-up on.  I barely go to the grocery store without my eyelashes and eyebrows on!  Now here is my guilty confession…. I Like It!  It’s easy and ease is something I can really get behind right about now.  To allow myself to let that go has been quite liberating!  It’s still amazing to me what can happen when you leave yourself alone….

What would you do if you simply allowed it?

Lots of Love!!

A Week Ago Today… March 13, 2013

HandA week ago today I had a torn tendon in my hand repaired.  With every thing that has happened in my life I am reminded regularly of allowing and patience.  The Universe asks me to walk the talk.  I think of myself as a patient person.  I’m often even told on a regular basis that I”m SO patient.  That said I’m regularly tested on this front.  Whether I plan a phone call to discuss an important issue and the person is out of town or I have ordered a time sensitive package and it is late or  traffic is crazy and I think I will be late (notice these are time related for me?).  It could be any or all of these scenarios.  I’m not even going to bring in the health issues that can occur.  I regularly write, coach or talk about allowing. Even saying this word gives me peace.

The Webster definition of Allow is:  1. admit (an event or activity) as legal or acceptable  2. give the necessary time or opportunity for.  “Give the necessary time or opportunity for”,  This is my favorite part of the definition.  When buttons are pushed as they can happen even to the best of us.  How do you return to the start of allowing?  Where you don’t struggle or fight with your given circumstances?  I am a Huge fan of breath… for more reasons than the obvious.  It helps us to return to our natural state of loving.  Loving of self and others.  It centers us.  The breath is a mini meditation. The ability to stay in this state is a bit like being a child.  Most children are very allowing because they have yet to learn their ability to control their surroundings.  They trust.  Ah trust…. So much of what gets in our way is our inability to trust.  If we stay in a state of allowing the trust comes more effortlessly.  Now I don’t mean allow others to do to you anything they choose but allow life to have its grace and kindness that we all seek.

What will you do today to allow (without getting hand surgery)?  To remain at peace with yourself?  How will you stay connected to your breath?

Lots of Love!

What a move can do… August 17, 2012

I moved out of NYC a few weeks ago and now everything is either unpacked or put into storage… My move was quiet smooth as far as moves go… Now it’s nose to the proverbial grind stone.  That said I’ve had so many mixed emotions since I have left.  On one hand I have definitely doubted my choice which for me is very rare.  Once I make a decision I have made it. No doubts.  On the other bigger hand I have Loved my new world.  This move involved the biggest heart expanding of all (moving closer to the man who I Love)… I’ve been a little scared.  In the past all my choices and decisions have all been for and about me.  No one else was involved. I know that sounds selfish but being single has allowed me that luxury.  But not this time… Someone else is very much involved.  So I’ve been more aware of ways of keeping peace and simply allowing as my center goal.  I walk a lot and meditate a lot and ride my bike a lot, which I did today saying “Good Morning” joyfully to all my neighbors and running errands!! This is a reminder that though we have absolute choice over everything we think and feel not everything is about us :-).  Allowing for love and communication between two people who love each other is one of the largest growing experiences for a person to have.  I knew that I had done a Lot of work to get to where I was and that I wanted to grow more by being involved with another who had done the same because the growth opportunity would be endless.  I chose Love not fear…

As I say to my clients,”How does taffy become yummy?…. All the pulling and yanking”.  Hence we are like that taffy. The choices we make about our feelings and situations make us into what we are.  And we know that it isn’t always that comfortable. So I know I want to be as yummy as possible…

So bring on the taffy pull!

 

Energetically!
