The Important Question I was Unable to Answer 10 Years Ago.

Wild [women and men] are an unexplainable spark of life. They ooze freedom and seek awareness, they belong to nobody but themselves yet give a piece of who they are to everyone they meet.
If you have met one, hold on to [him/her] she’ll allow you into her chaos but she’ll also show you her magic.
~Nikki Rowe

Dear creators of wonder and MAGIC!  I want to welcome you here! I’m deeply grateful that you’ve invited me into your inbox.  I don’t want to waste your time because, frankly, we don’t have time to waste. There’s life to be LIVED.

Recently I asked my Life Pirate Academy gang this powerful question that I was unable to answer back in 2008.  There answers made me grin ear to ear and gasp with delight.

So, ask yourself,

What would you do if you knew you could not fail?

What would you create?

Who is it for?
Not totally sure? Take your best guess….

Here are some responses that were shared:

1)Learn to speak Italian 2) the ability to communicate flawlessly while traveling all over Italy next year 3) myself

1) Finish homeopathy school and start a practice.
2) a practice that combines different alternative healing modalities so people can heal deeply.
3) if I’m brutally honest it would be for me… At least initially. It feels like a calling. I’ve been thinking about becoming a homeopathic for 20 years or so and I started school and stopped school twice in the last five years as it’s so confronting.

Leave my job and do something new. Something bigger with more of a felt impact. I don’t know what that is yet…

Thanks so much for these questions, Sarah! The thing that hit me this week is that I’m actually living my dream! It’s kind of a crazy adjustment from seeing it in my future to realizing it is here now. The thing I wanted to create was a little astrology practice to fit in around my beloved public librarian career and it has taken off!! It is my absolute pleasure to be able to bless people with permission slips to be their own amazing selves. And, truthfully, I don’t think I’d have jumped in with both feet the way I have without the reading I had with you this spring! Healing, transformation, adventure, laziness, and ripeness have been my encouragement and my taskmaster this year. Thank you for what you offer the world!! So grateful.

This is a great question! If I knew I couldn’t fail, I would: 1. publish a book. 2. Live and work in Europe for 1-2 years.
If I knew I could not fail I would write a book of essays, like mini memoirs that would reach people who feel alone–let them know they’re not alone. I would make enough money from this to fly my family to Scotland to see where my Grandfather was born.

from Sarah: My most recent  answer to this question (4 years ago) was: I’d go to the Amazon- into the heart of the jungle -and study plant medicine with a powerful teacher.

Guess what? I am doing this in December. It’s happening.

There is a POWER is naming your dreams.

Opportunities arrive.  Imagination is sparked.  Resources appear.

Could you open yourself to possibilities?

Thanks so much for creating this program and the effort you put into your selection of material and exercises. I know it’s going to help a lot of people, and I already return to some of the concepts in my head when I’m going about my day.  The program’s content seems just like the right amount for me personally to be able to consume and act on the recommendations and incorporate them into my daily life.


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.
