Mono No Aware

Surf it, Learn it, Live it. Hanalei, Hawaii. May 4-10, 2013. Do you really want to surf the larger WAVE of your life? How big and gnarly can your life wave get? How big is TOO big? How GOOD are you willing to let it get?

You’re never going to get to any final place.

And so, we want to remind you to relax and

start having fun on the way.  ~ Abraham-Hicks

Dear Creators of Wonder and Magic!

Greetings beautiful ones! You who make this world more wonder-filled and amazing!

You may have heard me say that I’m a wee bit obsessed with Japan and it’s language. This new word I learned is so apropos for this season:

(From Wikipedia)

Mono-no aware: the ephemeral nature of beauty – the quietly elated, bittersweet feeling of having been witness to the dazzling circus of life – knowing that none of it can last. It’s basically about being both saddened and appreciative of transience – and also about the relationship between life and death.

Change: the one thing that never stops!

Mono no aware- the wistful feeling of impermanence…

I feel it when the peonies begin to fade in early July…

When the kids get older and want me /need me less…

When warm summer nights give way to cool fall evenings..

And, as a wise Colombian shaman I adore says:

“It is good that we have all of these feelings. It is ok.”

I have several possible options for you if you’re looking to join with me?

The next live ZOOM call for Life Pirate Academy is August 27 at 12 noon Central/1 pm Eastern/10am Pacific! Come and be coached or just be inspired and connect with fellow pirates!  Learn more and join here for just $129.00.

I have a new workshop! its’s called ‘TIL DEATH DO US START.

I am really excited to bring this to you!

Whether you have a few moments or 50 years of life here on earth remaining, you have a purpose and there are things you want to accomplish, experience and BE while you’re here on earth.

Are you ready to have the relationships you dream about?

To take action on those long cherished dreams of yours?

To begin serving the creation/the Universe without resistance?

To break through your resistance to doing the things you KNOW you’re meant to be doing?

To allow yourself to experience the things your soul longs for?

To live happy, peaceful and free?

To be able to “hold space” for others who are dying or going through a difficult transition.

Are you longing to stop holding back (or hesitating) where it matters most?

P.S. Don’t worry! Talking about your death (happily!) will not bring it on, but it just might be the catalyst you need.

There’s a reason that all shamans keep death as a close ally: Befriending death enables them to do the things they came here to do.

Death is the ultimate life coach. ~ Alice the Elephant

Remembering we are going to die goads us to clean up our side of the street. To take action on our dreams. To express our feelings. To heal relationships. To forgive. To say I love you. To say I’m sorry. To let of the stuff, people and experiences that no longer serve us.

That is why I am so excited to do this work together.

Day 54| Messages from Alice ?? “Everything and everybody on this earth dies in time. It is good to grieve. And, it is also good to find gratitude right now for those things and beings that remain. It’s gratitude that can give you the strength to repair the world around you. And, it is love that can never be destroyed.” ~ Alice
