Inquiry

A client recently shared, "Sheryl, what I fear most is not doing what I'm actually here to do in this lifetime."

Framework

I so understood that fear.

To shift it involves learning to see yourself and your life clearly.

Sounds simple, I know.  But, actually it's quite profound.

How many times do you see yourself accurately when you look at yourself in the mirror?  Is your face the same shape, size, color you expect it to be?

When you reflect on what you've contributed to your family and what you haven't?  Would your list match your family's lists?  How clearly are you seeing you?

No worries, this is challenging for most of us.  So, here's what you can do to clear your mirror.

Ritual

Each December, I have a ritual.  

I take a big piece of blank paper and start listing all my gratitudes and accomplishments for the year.  

This year, I may need 2 pieces (smile).

I list Good Energy joyful moments that have mattered like: 

  • Experimented with mixing 1 C corn starch w/1/2 C water with my eleven year old son (try it!)
  • Did a Fly-Me-Out to Grand Cayman Island to facilitate energy sessions for 3 generations of amazing folks
  • Served as a Shamanic Camp Counselor for 150 Maverick Entrepreneurs 
  • Supported around 2,000 students and clients with energy work
  • Deepened 4 existing friendships, resurrected 2 former friendships, made at least a dozen new "good people" friendships I cherish
  • Planted 8 fruit trees in my home orchard with support 

Some Good Energy moments are simple.  Some are personal.  Some are professional.  Some are even practical.

All are moments that mattered deeply to me.

Challenge

I invite you to grab some paper, and create your 2015 Good Energy List.

See how many moments lit up your smile, your heart, your mind, your belly this year.  

Draw them or write them.  Feel each tiny triumph in your cells, as if they're waking up as you're celebrating them.

Each moment you list validates:

"I'm using my time well here in this body, as this being, on this planet, now." 

Then, challenge yourself to focus on 1 focused intention for 2016.  What is the one accomplishment that if you mastered this in 2016, you will have checked off the next level of soul mastery on your internal checklist?  

It's not that you won't accomplish more than that.  It's just that the act of narrowing our choices, allows us to infuse more potency into the one intention that matters most.

I like to choose:

1 for how I'll serve the world & 

1 for how I'll be in right relationship with my family while I serve the world. 

Your turn!  On your marks, get set, go!

Post your top 2015 triumph & your 2016 intention(s), so I may celebrate and hold space for your dreams, too.

 

Rumbling into Stillness: The Birth of Energy Alchemy

 
 

Here's a little background on the early rumble of how the

Energy Alchemy

course began.

Picture this.  Four feet of snow, piled mid-trunk across the Michigan trees.  It's February, and as I looked outside with no green grass nor sunshine anywhere in sight, my phone rang.  

"Uh, Sheryl, I'm not going to California next month."  

"What?" 

"Yes, you heard me, and according to another colleague's FB post this morning, you aren't either."

"What?!"

My mind ran like an angry bull, plowing through porcelain places inside me.  

It was one of those moments when you can't think straight.  One of those moments, that if you were a car, your red hazard lights would be flashing "Warning! Warning!  Warning!" from here to Mars.  

It was one of those moments when you want to blame, "Whose fault is this?", and shame, "Did I cause this?" and where you complain inside your own head, "It's so cold, and it was going to be so warm."  It was one of those moments.

Except suddenly, I realized that every person I was blaming, was going to feel my invisible blame.  That my bullishness was not just crashing and smashing internally, but each thought was like a poison arrow that I was flinging at people I loved and respected, unconsciously.  

Something happened inside that moment, and it awoke a willingness to do something kinda revolutionary, and evolutionary, and

Energy Alchemy

began.

I asked myself, "What are you running from?  What is so blasted uncomfortable, that you're blaming, shaming and complaining?"  

Here's what I've discovered . . .

Each of us has a feeling that stalks us, that trips our inner wire, that incites us to press that inner eject button.  

It's a feeling so simple and simultaneously so profound that we've patterned a fight-flight defense system around it, such that if we even catch the scent of it, we're outta there.  What's fascinating here, is that we spend so much energy not feeling it, and then overeating, or overspending, or overhabituating whatever our self-soothing mechanism is, that we stop being present and often start behaving out of alignment.  Discordant.

So, I made a radical choice.

I consciously chose to do something else instead.  I consciously chose to sit and actually feel the feeling that I most did not want to feel.  You know what it was?  It was plain old disappointment.  

When I first began sitting with disappointment, it was unbelievably uncomfortable.  Picture cruising along a dirt road in a jallopy without shock absorption, I kept wanting to pop right out of my seat, to escape the discomfort, but then a series of potent meditation tools began to download and I began learning to stay.  The more I practiced, the calmer I grew, until something started to transform, to alchemize, and only oneness remained.  This really still, knowing, universal wisdom, experienced.

For weeks now, I've been sensing. . .

2015

is

one

gigantic

launchpad

for our dreams

A time when we think a thought and

it's like we've just jumped onto a trampoline and are soaring to the stars.

 

Increasing our ability to stay centered, grounded and connected amidst turbulence and to masterfully pilot both inner and outer space are now necessary skills. 

It's a time beyond waiting.  It's a time to transform dreams into abundance, and significant mindfulness tools are simply required.
