Why I do what I do and the meaning of it all!

See that picture?  I did that with my pastel crayons.  Did I do it to win a prize or show people my artistic talents?  Nope.  I did it cause it’s fun and I enjoy it.  It’s not about others liking it or not.  It’s about me enjoying what I do and doing what I enjoy.  That goes not only for painting crayons but everything I do.  I follow the fun. Whether it’s making Spirit Dolls, jewelry, dream catchers, writing a book, hosting a radio show or cleaning house.. it’s about the fun. 

Pleasure is a good thing, it let’s me know I’m conscious and aware of myself.  There is no guilt in true pleasure, there is no harm in true pleasure.  Right now I’m piled up on my bed with my three Siamese kittens and the laptop writing this.  Of course I could be doing something else, but this is what is fun for me at this moment.  It may be fun later to cook a meal, clean the house or mow the lawn.  I might even get the art supplies out and make another picture.  I may read a book, or write another chapter in the book I’m working on now. 

My point is, I follow the fun.  Yeah, I make a mental note of the things I’d like to do, to accomplish, to finish. Some days I even do those things, some days I do some of them, other days I do none of them.  It all depends on the fun, the pleasure.  Pleasure is pure and expansive, as I explore my creative energy and express another aspect of myself.  It’s not about doing what has to be done but what thrills and delights me in the doing of it.

Recently I’ve begun really cleaning my home.  I’ve thrown away stuff from every corner of the house.  I’ve hauled unwanted furniture to the road.  A few people asked didn’t I feel guilty in not recycling it all?  NO I did not.  I stopped doing guilt a few years ago when I realized it was counter productive to enjoying my life. 

Thirty years ago I was a type A+ personality and was pretty miserable inside.  I was caught up in all the gotta, shoulda’s of life and it just wasn’t fun.  So, I stopped the guilt trip on myself.  Now that’s not saying do as you please and to Hades with the consequences, rather it’s an open door to self realization of your / my power to create and interact with that which is created.  I create, I get to interact with what I create.. so why would I create anything I didn’t want to have as an experience?  See the pure beauty in that?

Today follow the fun.  Let pure pleasure guide you to each experience.  If it ain’t fun.. just don’t bother with it, move on to something else.

I’d love to hear from you.  Did you follow the fun?  What was your experience?

Love yourself well,

The Barefoot Guru

How many dreams do you have that you’ve given up on over time?  Most of us just don’t follow through so we don’t see the dreams as reality.  We get busy doing the day in and day out stuff of life and just let those dreams wither on the vine.  On my radio broadcasts I’ve discussed many times how to keep showing up for yourself.  When you show up for you others begin to show up to support you.  When I started the Awakened Radio Network a few years back NO ONE knew it even existed.  I would go on air and there was no one listening.  I kept showing up and kept talking.  Now there are people listening to the radio station 24/7.  There are also other hosts who support the message of the station and listeners who help promote and who show up to take part in the live broadcasts.

There were many times when I could have just quit and done something else.  It didn’t look in the beginning like it was working, no one was listening.  I held in there though and kept posting on the social networks and I kept showing up for my dream.  You are always supported by Source in whatever you are desiring to do and experience, you’ve just got to know that and keep being in that experience.  With the radio station I kept showing up and being a radio host on a radio station even though no one else was there and before long others showed up to support me in my dream and help make it real.

I’m also an indie publisher and with the first few books I wrote and self published no one knew anything about them.  I had always wanted to be a published writer so I wrote.  I’ve written since I learned how and eventually I found a way to show up for myself and get published.  Thirty years ago I wrote and submitted to publishers and could have wallpapered my office with the rejection slips, but I didn’t stop writing and submitting.  Eventually I got a check for one of my short stories and I was delighted.  I continued to write and now have a dozen books on Amazon and people purchase them and tell their friends about them. 

I kept showing up for myself and moving in my dreams.  Each day I show up and live the experience of my dreams and day by day the experience expands to include even more details of what I want to experience.  It works that way.  You keep showing up even on those days and moments when it feels hard, when to your outer eyes it just doesn’t seem to be working and like a seed planted in the soil eventually it rises up and you see the growth and expansion.

Take a few moments and go over how you can show up for yourself and your dreams.  What can you do, be, experience right now that is your dream?  Do that.  Keep a journal, make notes of how you show up and how others show up to support you.

If you’d like to inspirational support join me on the Awakened Radio Network.

Let’s talk about it Life issues for real people real lives

Listen to internet radio with Empowered Women on Blog Talk Radio

I’m so excited.. in just a month I will have hosted my radio show Empowered Women for two years.  Lots has happened in this two year period, lots of conversation has taken place as well.  We’ve covered so many topics about real people living real lives with real problems and real solutions.

I am honored to have been listened to and joined on the air and in the chat room by so many wonderful people.  We’ve covered topics on law of attraction, spiritual energy healing, healing the planet, the spirituality of politics and so much more.

The radio show is actually proof of law of attraction working.  I set an intention, I talked about what thrills me and people came who were interested in those topics.  Many of my listeners have also become my friends. 

My life has touched and been touched by so many people while doing the show.  You guys have supported me through my broken arm, move to a new place and the passing of my oldest child.  I am so filled with appreciation for each of you.

The radio show is the kitchen table where family and friends get together to talk about life and about answers to the questions of life.  What a delightful process this has been and continues to be.  I’m gearing up for more shows, with more interaction.  I’ve talked about healing through grief, working with law of attraction for all areas of life, healing the self and our world, politics and why it matters to us in the spiritual community.  Now with the Oil in the Gulf of Mexico I’ve been really gearing up the connection between the ONE, how everything affects everything and everyone.

With 2012 right around the corner I feel an urgency to get a message of hope, change and healing out to as many as possible.  Things are changing, we are changing.  It’s a very exciting time to be here in a physical body.  What will the next few years bring about?  We are the ones who decide that.

I invite  you to join me on Empowered Women radio, ask your questions, make your comments, share your wisdom.  Join the family and let’s ride the wave of change together in joy and excitement.  Use the radio player at the top to listen to a show or two, then click here to go to the site, join Blog Talk Radio, make me a friend and mark my show a favorite, that way you will receive an email each time I schedule a new show.
