Best Week So Far : Sunday 11th September 2016

bestweeksofarSunday 11th September

This week has been the best so far!

When you live a life guided by creating more and more awesome, you ensure that each week is better than the last:

better awareness = better choice = better resources = better being

Don’t get stuck in the past with a week that was “the best ever”! Create weeks that are the best so far, and keep on creating more!

Here are the tools that have contributed to this week being my best so far…

Question…

Questions offer choice and possibility you weren’t aware of before. Conclusions offer rigid judgements that trap you where you are. Here is the question that has created the most change for me this week :
What or who can I add to this that would change things and bring more ease straight away?
When you have a million things to do and you’re not really sure how to do them, ask questions. It may seem that adding more will create more ‘overwhelm’, yet, would an Infinite Being really get overwhlemed? Ask what you can add and notice who or what shows up to make your world easier …

Work on the Women’s Space…

We have worked through the week, building the Lodge at The Place in The Wilde. Timeline is looking good for next weekend’s events. If you are intending to come along to the Red Tents and Deep Dive, it is imperative that you book by Wednesday so that I can send out the directions to you in time. See the progress photos of The Place in The Wilde here >>>

I’m Reading…

I read so much non-fiction and it means bedtime is so full of information that my brain never stops. So, against all habit, I’ve been bringing more fiction into my life. Talulah from Making Sacred gave me her absolute favourite historic fiction series ever (big pressure right?), and I smashed the first book, already onto the second. The series about Boudicca and written by Manda Scott. It’s all about a tribal world of horses and dog and hunting and being on the land. It really is better than I thought it would be, and the writing has reached a new poetic scent in the second book.

Eat here…

Canberra people, I don’t know how late we arrived at the party : I have just found the Peruvian place at Dickson called Cholo’s Peruvian Cuisine. I’d never tried Peruvian food before and it was delicious! Like, the best meal I’ve had out for a long time. A lot of that had to do with the service and decor and just all round niceness of the place. Whenever I go to a new restaurant I ask the waiter what they would choose. It;s a good way to know what’s more like the traditional food and what’s there just for Australian taste. So fun. So yum. Please go and check them out.

Quote of the week…

“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” ~ Eleanor Roosevelt

Best Week So Far : 4th September 2016

bestweeksofar

Sunday 4th September

This week has been the best so far!

When you live a life guided by creating more and more awesome, you ensure that each week is better than the last:

better awareness = better choice = better resources = better being

Don’t get stuck in the past with a week that was “the best ever”! Create weeks that are the best so far, and keep on creating more!

Oh it’s been a while between BWSF letters but I promise I’ve been having lots of great weeks! We have moved house and currently have no reception for internet or cell phones. While I’m deciding whether or not we will ever connect to the satellite, I’m getting heaps of time to write and dream and create the life that sets me free!

Here are some tools that have contributed to this week being my best so far…

Question…

Questions offer choice and possibility you weren’t aware of before. Conclusions offer rigid judgements that trap you where you are. Here is a question that came up in the Red Tent this week :
What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail?
If money wasn’t something you had to think about, what would you do? If you were being your entire contribution, what would that look like? Really, what’s stopping you? .

Post you might have missed…

A heap of new posts have hit the Institute site this week. In particular, some amazing women’s events with myself (Women Gather-in) and with my heart sistar Talulah of Making Sacred (Moon Circles).
I’ve also written about a collection that’s in our local library. HERE>>>
And, a piece that I feel truly represents exactly what my work and the Institute for Self Crafting is about. HERE>>>

A project on the go…

We are building a women’s space at The Wilde, and when I say “we” I mean we the women. A women’s space built by women, for women. See this Instagram Post to find out how you can be involved HERE >>>

Listening to..

Jason Prall’s You Optimized Radio is my current favourite Podcast. It’s not one I can listen to everyday, because they’re talking about big health concepts with lots of big words to match! I do listen to one guest every week though. If you want to check it out, I advise starting at the oldest podcast and work your way forward.

Quote of the week…

“The challenge of being a parent is to live our moments as fully as possible, charting our own course as best we can, above all, nourishing our children, and in the process, growing ourselves. Our children and the journey itself provide us with endless opportunities in this regard.” ~ Jon Kabat-Zinn

I am so excited to announce the coming of my dear heart Sistar Talulah, of Making Sacred , to our little Braidwood town, for some special Girls and Women’s Circles.

This work is SO important for the entire world. Please share it with anyone. And if you’re not in Braidwood, Talulah will travel. Get a group together and book her to come to you.

Moon Circle for Mothers and Maidens

moon_mother_maidens2

A coming of age circle for Maidens (9-13 yrs) and their Mothers. This 3-4 hour workshop shares the magic and mysteries of the menstrual cycle for girls as they are stepping through this rite of passage. We bring positivity and sacredness to this circle, and it offers support, knowledge and gentle healing for Mothers as well. We learn about the wisdom of the cycles, what connects us as Women and how we are all a part of the Earth.

This is a beautiful circle to share with a class or group of special friends, so that they have a dialogue and support system among their peers as they experience this amazing transformation.
