YOUR UNLIMITED POTENTIAL IN THE DEEP SPACE OF NEURAL CONNECTION

As an enormous lifelong fan of all things Star Trek, I can effortlessly recite the classic introductory narrative we have all come to know so well…… “Space,….. The FINAL frontier.  These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its continuing mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no one has gone before.”  And then the music intensifies with angelic crescendo and cyber techno overtones!

And perhaps deep space is and will always be the “final frontier”.  But why, can you tell me, are we so complacent with the undiscovered country of our own intimate space between our ears; known as our brain?

After all, haven’t we been told for generations by evolving neural scientific assessment that all relevant scans reveal that the average human being uses less than 10% of our brains?  So, are we to understand that without suggested resolution we are to accept that we may live an entire lifetime experientially limited to less than 1/10 of our conscious neural capacity?

This would-be concession notwithstanding, recent discoveries in neuroplasticity and epigenetics demonstrate that truthfully, the “new frontier” worthy of further wanderlust and spirited investigation may in fact be the brain after all.

‘Neuro’ stands for neurons, the nerve cells in the brain that generate electrical activity, and ‘plasticity’ means changeable, adaptable and modifiable,” explains Norman Doidge, a psychiatrist and author of The Brain’s Way of Healing: Remarkable Discoveries and Recoveries From the Frontiers of Neuroplasticity.  Doidge profiles cutting-edge treatments, including light, sound and vibration therapies. He offers however, that anyone can improve the plasticity of the brain simply by adjusting daily habits. What human daily habits would he be referring to?

New scientific discoveries about the biochemical effects of the brain’s functioning show that all the cells of your body are affected by your thoughts.  Dr. Bruce Lipton, the bestselling author of Biology of Belief and renowned cell biologist, describes the precise molecular pathways through which this occurs.  In his books and lectures he uses simple language, illustrations, humor and everyday examples, and demonstrates how the new science of epigenetics is revolutionizing our understanding of the link between mind and matter, and the profound effects it has on our personal lives and the collective life of our species.

If human beings are capable of rewiring their brains through disciplining themselves with daily brain cognitive habits for more accessible plasticity of neural activity and can alter their brains molecular pathways, realigning the active genetics demonstrating in the body, what else are we capable of in this obsessively driven world of all things superhero?

Excellent question!  And my answer as a specialist in this field would be, the full activation of a sense often discussed in hushed tones and privately held intimate company, the little understood “6th Sense” that refers to personal intuition.

In mainstream society, little is known about all the above topics but evolving science is always humbled by its next discovery and often correcting itself from once religiously held discarded theories.

Were we to have greater conscious access to our own grey matter, what would life look like and how would the brain scans we have come to use so readily to determine what hemisphere of the brain we are using and when; would we see lighting up anew?

As an energy intuitive that works intensively with clients to tap into their latent intuition, an author of developmental intuition literature, Prosperity Through the Development of Emotional Intuition and The Reluctant Intuitive, A Soulful Confession and Practical Guide, and a public speaker of awakened consciousness for the purpose of developing our intuitive tool kit, I can assure you there in no doubt in my mind that mainstream science is now articulating what mystics, philosophers, visionaries and seekers have known for eons……. We are all connected to a vast and ever-reaching web of connectivity.  Within this delicate net of invisible but fully inclusive lacing of all sentience, we are powerful intuitive beings just beginning to conceive of how immeasurably we can co-create our lives with conscious intention, discipline, education, skill development and overall compassion for one another.

When innovation is upon the imminent threshold of delivering us “Neurolink” by the world-renowned visionary, Elon Musk of Tesla Corporation, Gigafactory, SpaceX and more, foretelling of the inevitable “singularity” that will bridge humanity with the already existent A.I. in a world of real life virtual reality, how can we ignore the necessity, nay the moral obligation to develop our full senses and access the far reaches of the evolved brain if for nothing else but the unquestionable need for personal discernment?

Discovering you were so much more than you ever gave yourself credit for is a fantastically phenomenal gift to allow yourself to receive.  Receive it anyway.  Developmental intuition is yours to discover and cultivate.  It is the next, if not the final frontier. 

Let’s begin.

Madly Relevant

While contemplating my renewed commitment to being purposefully conscious for every moment that presents itself to passionately serve, my mind keeps reeling with a replay of Cat Stevens iconic melody,…. “Oh baby, baby it’s a wild world….”

Yes, it is.  When most folks that you talk to can’t get in enough words in to describe how overly busy they are, you feel the sentiment everywhere.  In my coaching and energy awareness and quantum healing practice, I listen to clients exclaim their surprise that the bladders and bowels that once served them so impeccably are now non-communicative after years of “hold and wait” through endless corporate boards meetings.  Really?  And you are surprised by this?

Daily we are training ourselves how to “be”.  As the commander of the ship, the voice of the tabernacle, the director of our energy frequencies, we are daily, consciously and unconsciously setting the pattern of flow and resonance around us; and our lives attract, our relationships mirror and our bodies health will reflect accordingly.

Staying relevant to our own lives, fully present to those who we are committed to and matter the most is genuinely what being “madly relevant” is all about.

A quote that chimed in and rang true in my pontificating noggin’ rolled out like this the other day….

“Be purposefully planted.  Make a difference right where you are.”

So Bah Humbug to the overreaching marketing and media memes of “GO BIG OR GO HOME”!  Who says you have to join into the hype of competitive sales soup to make a difference in the world and live a deeply enriching and equally purposeful life?

If we all leave home to join the 3 ring circus of “GO BIG seekers”…. who will tend to our children?…. our homes?….. our gardens?….. our communities?…. our microcosm?

Being relevant where we are builds from the core outward and replicates itself in an ever reaching wave through quantum fields of synchronistic and collaborative regeneration.

There would be very few, if any, homeless at our freeways off-ramps if every individual, …. literally every family chose to do this.

So today as I make the daily commitment to being present, I hold those that are dear to me, listen to the Guidance within, study my Spanish so that I can relate better to an ever melding world, tend to my bio-dynamic gardens, care for my precious fur children, check in with my offspring and theirs, and plant myself firmly in the gift that is my madly relevant life.

Madly Relevant

 

Are you feeling flat?  Has life’s pearly luster worn down a bit and left you in monotonous auto-pilot, managing duties and keeping up with tasks,… with little evident payoff?  When enthusiasm for once sacred delights wanes and our once impenetrable fortress of professional, familial, relational or aesthetic value finds itself in question; it’s not a far drop to literally lose oneself.  Where do we find ourselves relevant, valuable and equally irreplaceable to those we hold dear?

Are you entrenched in the identity of something relational, heavily invested but impermanent?  Has the caricature you’ve identified with become somehow antiquated?  In other words, have you played the role of someones spouse, parent, child, partner, caregiver, confidant, now displaced by an evolving lack of demand?  Has the season changed and flipped you irreverently on your ass?

Seasons in our lives are meant to drastically amend the prior landscape, irrevocably altering us and sharpening up our current sense of who we identify ourselves to be.  We all know this, and for the most part we can come to accept it.  Our children’s co-dependence is meant to wane as they grow to adulthood, expertise in any field gives way to new discovery, new figures rise in their expertise and the world cycles itself endlessly, with or without our active participation or witness.

So in humble acceptance of this natural principle, and assessment of my recent participation in the mechanisms of societal evolution, if someone was to ask me how I am feeling about my momentary contribution…. my answer would have to unequivocally be, “I FEEL FLAT”.

Most who know me would find this revelation remarkable and quite unexpected, as I am toting several badges of honor that “should”demonstrate otherwise.  As a woman in my mid-forties, I have successfully raised 4 upright, enormously talented and equally healthy children to adulthood.  There is also the newfound joy of recent grand-motherhood, which can be some serious fun.  My education was completed finally, nearly a decade ago which boasts a doctorate, complimented with a nomination as a Global Peace Ambassador to the UPF.  I have published two books, one of which has been a #1 Bestseller, and have enjoyed the fruits of a successful coaching practice.  I have lived abroad and traveled to many exotic areas of this glorious globe and have the love of a passionately devoted soul mate.

Now that I have colored in the blanks and framed this life of mine a bit, I sound reminiscent of a pitifully ungrateful complainer, don’t I?  Were it not for the overbearing issues that plague my soul, I wouldn’t even like myself much, let alone defend my position of melancholy.

So what’s up?  Where in the heck is the apathy coming from when a plethora of blessings have already been manifested in real time?

Well, now that you ask…. there is that matter of a nation torn asunder by a political tryst engineered at the highest levels of influence.  From that influential patriarchy, my understanding is that nearly EVERY aspect of our lives are manipulated against our best interests.  Apparently our skies are salted relentlessly with barium, strontium and aluminum, all carcinogenic and toxic to ourselves, our soil, our water and all life upon which it falls.  Our soil and crops have been neglectfully poisoned, frankensteinanly engineered with patented seed by greedy corporations.  The water that we drink is regularly tested positive for excessive toxic fluoride, chlorine, a cadre of pharmaceuticals that have leached into the water table, just to name a few.  Our politics appear to be in-defensively rigged, our banking institutions corrupt, our history re-written by the victors to malevolently manipulative levels meant to engender ignorance.  Technology has become a worldwide virtue and vice in it’s necessity in our lives, giving rise to social media addiction and corresponding depression; not to mention excessive spending due to forced obsolescence.  Need another update?…. sorry, you are out of memory!  No problem… we have a “cloud” to hold ALL your sensitive, personal data.  Completely safe, of course.  And the cost is……

Ugh…..

There are quite literally too many issues to list and I have only begun to be a serious buzz kill in my first blog in nearly 5 years!  Should I stop myself already?

So here is the thing…….

What can I really do about any of it?  How in this ever changing world of the good, the bad and the ugly can I find lasting relevance in this world?  REAL, serious and MAD, far-reaching, undeniable, heart saturated RELEVANCE?

As one who holds myself to a high level of impeccability in my personal contribution, forever pushing my limits and forcing back my comfort zones, I deeply appreciated this reminder.

Ours is not the task of fixing the entire world all at once, but of stretching out to mend the part of the world that is within our reach. Any small, calm thing that one soul can do to help another soul, to assist some portion of this poor suffering world, will help immensely. It is not given to us to know which acts or by whom, will cause the critical mass to tip toward an enduring good.

Clarissa Pinkola Estes
American poet, post-trauma specialist and Jungian psychoanalyst, author of Women Who Run With the Wolves.

So, upon rising….. let us ask that ever-present, Universal Consciousness, that constant pervading Wisdom and Love Presence that holds each of us eternally in It’s Wholeness,…. “What would you have me do to serve the “whole” today?  What would you have me say, give, share, listen to, participate in, hold space for, be present as a witness to make a difference?”

The opportunity is always there.  On the freeway.  In the checkout line.  In EVERY parking lot.  There is always someone’s life that we can touch, lighten, brighten and witness.

It is in that space that we find purpose.  It is in this daily practice that we make a difference.  This is how we daily demonstrate “mad relevance“.

 

“How Do You Couple”?

Where do you solicit your coupling, companioning, courting advice from?  Are you a big online reader, picking up random tidbits here and there?  Sort of pseudo Dr. Seuss’ing your way across the sea of internet articles, knocked loose from all natural preconceived notions about intimate human interaction?  “Would you do it in a box…. would you do it with a fox….”?

Have you run through the rampant list of authors from Sherry Argov and “Why Men Marry Bitches” to Tucker Max and “I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell”?….. with a twist of Michael Fiore and “Digital Romance” radio in between?

Let’s be honest…. from the locker room to the pulpit we are all relentlessly peppered with counsel and commandment, irreverent and snarky or otherwise about how we are meant to behave with a potential partner.

So let’s just jump ahead a bit shall we?  Let’s collectively decide to move past the oh so very “wonderful world of dating” and straight into intimate commitment…. whatever that looks like for you when it strikes your core!

There is SO much to be understood in maintaining the relationship and keeping it fed, thriving and alive!

In my practice I see many a single soul as well as eager couples trying to figure out if the connection was EVER truly there, how to get it back and where to go from there to NEVER loose it again.

Now really, this isn’t exclusive wisdom my friends….. it’s not even too far fetched in the evolutionary edge of relationship advice.

But it is OH SO VERY INTEGRAL TO ANSWERING THE QUESTIONS WE ALL SEEK!

 

Nude seated couple opposingly connected
Coupling that is meant to be lasting must first be “Conscious”. Knowing one’s partners “love language” as defined by Gary Chapman, investing in a weekend retreat uncovering your beloved’s “Imago” are both ways fully available to modern day couples seeking deeply meaningful union.
In my practice I define 5 Tiers to “Conscious Coupling” that give context to and richer texturing in the envisioning of ideal steps to take to achieve desired union.

The 5 Tiers of “Conscious Coupling” can be found here and on the free tools links which are as follows:
HONESTY ~ TRANSPARENCY ~ VULNERABILITY ~ PERMEABILITY ~ TRANSCENDENCY

1. Honesty is the first tier of being a conscious member of a couple as one must first be honest with oneself. How can we build a pillar of honesty and integrity in a relationship when we are deluding ourselves? Within that honesty we can glean clarity about who we are, what it is that we truly want for ourselves in our lives and how another individual can compliment that life and the dreams that we seek in our present and future.

2. Transparency is the act of being “seen” in a relationship sufficient that we can be deeply understood. Intimacy has been recently broken down by experts as “into-me-see”. This is only possible if we are able to reveal the essence of ourselves confidently to our intimate partner without any veils of illusion. We must be true and available to remain unmasked and open to the same level of transparency in our partners.

3. Vulnerability is an automatic byproduct of the second tier of Conscious Coupling. When we have allowed with genuine honesty to make ourselves transparent to our partners, being that they have demonstrated sufficient sensitivity and trust to earn this level of raw nakedness from us, we are automatically vulnerable and thereby accessible to a true union.

4. Permeability is the melding of thoughts, feelings, beliefs, perceptions, intentions, literally the full range of our personal energy with our partner. The goal of permeability is to be made “more” in our wholeness with our partner than we could possibly be alone. Quantum physics has demonstrated that the cumulative energy of committed couples exponentially increases intended effects in any given goal or endeavor.

5. Transcendency is the ultimate goal of conscious coupling. The Divine is magnified and mirrored in ourselves and in our beloved, returning us to an awakened state of macrocosm, endless connectedness and a transcendent state of personal purpose. We are literally able to reclaim an exalted state of connection with our true state of being, which is sublime connection to the whole of the Universe and every soul in existence.

“Our love for each other up-framed everything, transforming the dust, the dirt, the madness of the world into inspired delight. That’s the thing about great love… It elevates everything around it. You walk through a forest together and it becomes a great temple. You eat a meal together and you sit at God’s banquet table. You merge your bodies and all heaven breaks loose. That’s why we can’t stop singing about love… every verse is an invitation to wholeness.” Jeff Brown

Isn’t your invaluable investment of time in an intimate partner, perhaps even a “soul mate” worth allowing yourself this? A deep, enriching, expansive and yes, even transcendent connection with your love?

How Many Tips Did You Say???

sacred-mirrors-alex-grey reflections
I get a serious kick out of reading the headlines of my email service’s news reel…..”3 tips to get your belly flat now!” or “5 ways to make him love you forever!”…… yada, yada, yada.

Yes, there is amazing bullet pointed advice out there, but to pigeon hole a number and cram the entire population into that quantifier is ludicrous!

I admit it,…. I am a professional coach. I also happen to be a PhD and an energy intuitive and if there is one humbling fact that I have come to realize in my short life on this planet it is this……. Each of us is so intrinsically unique, so magnificently faceted in that uniqueness there is never one way to address anything truly pertinent.

And since when is everyone who has had personal experience an “EXPERT”??? People are coming out of the woodworks, doling out advice with the title of expert because they visited the school of hardknocks a time or two. Well… who hasn’t?

Before you pay 49.95 for “3 Weird tips to…… ” or purchase an online tutorial for the amazing deal of $399.95 to permanently change……”, why not realize that any investment is best learned when it is profoundly experienced.

You want a heartbeat and an acutely listening ear when it comes to building a support system for clarity and change?

By all means, if you are genuinely drawn to a fabulous article or bewitched by a clever titled book…. read on! But be really super honest with yourself….. are you intuitively drawn to it or not?

You see, your answers are exactly that…. “your answers”. We are meant to live a life wide awake to ourselves, excavating and discovering our own riches! There is NO ONE else like you alive or dead! You are a fresh new perspective on humankind, with your own delicious adventure to tell.

So, good advice… you bet, it’s out there but when it comes to knowing ourselves and the uniqueness of our personal dynamics, relationship quirks, physiological anomalies and what have you….. take the time to inquire and get the support of an intuitive coach that listens to you. One that reveals how much you already know and have access to yourself, but just needed a skillful mirror to reflect it back and hold you to what you know and want!

Your answers can’t be quantified, repackaged and sold en masse…… great marketing, but no bueno.

Anything that is going to last is going to be as customized and specific as you are!

YOU want to know how many steps it will take before you have…….. let’s ask the right questions first and let your intuition reveal it’s brilliance to you!…. with the help of “your” coach.

Let me know how I can help!

Honor yourself and never undermine your intuitive wisdom!

My last blog lightly touched on the profound experience that I shared with a colleague taking sabbatical and walking the 1000 year old pilgrimage of the “Camino de Santiago de Compostella”.  Throughout and well after that experience I was left with the profound conviction that walking life “our way” and not falsely for others was prerequisite to a fulfilling and authentic life.  I was also distinctively impressed with the conviction that I required sabbatical several times a year rather than once a decade, as was my prior record.

With that self knowledge I scheduled to take sabbatical in the form of a 10 day silent meditation retreat the first part of this year to do some internal and soulful “spring cleaning” and renew my connection with my inner voice. 

Being clear in my core values and deepest priorities, I prepared family, home, practice clients and colleagues with my details for time away and confirmed the reservation with the retreat center.  The commitment to remain with the program for 10 full days of meditative retreat was very strict and I was without question determined to enjoy every blissfully quiet day provided there.

It was then  with bewilderment that, on the 4th day of silent relfection I found myself questioning that conviction.   While meditating with a member of the staff about my intention towards the remainder of the program  I found myself forced to consider a very different plan. 

As an intuitive, I have always utilized a technique when attempting to make a decision regarding multiple future scenarios.  Ultimately, I project my energetic intention into the prevalent future options before me and when I can see one develop clearly in my minds eye, in full color and accompanying emotion, I know the direction to take.

I found myself meditating with a member of the staff about my remaining 6 days of the program only to draw a complete blank.  What?  Why?  Isn’t this what I passionately wanted?  Where is the energy towards it?

When I relinquished to envision myself leaving the program and returning home I immediately saw my two teenage children rushing towards me earnestly and with great need.  Taken aback by this very clear and stirring vision I couldn’t shake and realizing that I could only confirm this energetic “call home” by breaking my silence and leaving the program, I chose to trust my intuition as my deepest resource and connection to the Divine and honor my answer.

It was immediately upon being reunited with my belongings and technology that I discovered my daughter had called in deep distress tearfully the evening before and had left a message pleading for my return and simultaneously a message from my son expressing his need for assistance due to having become ill in my 4 days absence and having not recovered sufficiently alone.  I felt this was sufficient for my “call home” until the morning of the following day when I was to learn the truly powerful gift that “listening” to one’s internal wisdom consistently provides.  The morning following my return my time was needed to take my 15 year old daughter to school, as her 17 year old brother was still taking the time home to mend from his illness.  It was during that drive that I was struck with the full impact of my decision.

My daughter and I share a very open and transparent dialogue wherein I am privy to the many impressions, perceptions, opinions and potential plans of my still too innocent child.  She shared having met a boy that had been contacting her since my departure of 5 days ago and his chat messages, pictures shared, requests to meet her at a movie theatre, her impressions of his pictures and dialogue with him, etc.  In listening my interest grew keener as I realized that the timeline and sequence of her sharing seemed strangely incongruent.  How long have you known this boy?  How old is he?  You met him where?  He says he attends your school but you met online?  He has asked to meet you at a movie theater rather than approaching you at school directly?  He wants you to meet him sometime today?

Red flashed through my mind like a screaming wave of panic.  This story is ALL wrong!  Within minutes I had my daughter promise to turn off her phone, stay collectively with her friends throughout the day, be available to be picked up in the carpool immediately after school and under no circumstances leave the campus.  Within 2 hours my concerns were completely validated and I was fully informed that this 17 year old boy did not exist within the school system, that the entity that stole the identity of this handsome 17 year old persona had been contacting other girls in my daughters circle of friends and at her high school and that he was in truth a cyber stalker, equipped with all he needed to lure unsuspecting young ladies into compromising circumstances, should parents not be communicative and savvy enough to be aware of their child’s innermost lives.

My sweet, precious and innocent daughter was spared a potential unknown horror at the hands of a child predator because I was listening!  I was not only listening to my inner voice of guidance and direction but continued to listen to those that I treasure most and that I have aligned with and committed my core intentions to.

I am a mother first and as this resonates most deeply with my core values and obligations, I could be directed by my inner knowing to question a commitment to myself for silence and sabbatical that was perilously incongruent with the safety and preservation of my dear child.

Because of my swift intervention, no meeting was to take place with a child predator that day and other young ladies at my daughter’s school were quickly advised to be on alert and discontinue any further dialogue with this disturbed mind, bent on unknown intentions.  All were spared.

Living purposefully, living fully and living passionately in touch with who we are at our core devoted to is the freeing gift I am living in this day… in this moment.  I am eternally grateful for the wisdom that continues to emerge because of my consistent connection to Source.

The balance of time….. for self, for family, for service, for career, for community, for wherever else we show up in this lifetime is always in a state of flux.  Allow for the flexibility to question when questions arise.  Rigidity would not have served me had I upheld my initial commitment to have stayed with my retreat program.  Rigidity would have robbed me of the flow of Universal wisdom.  Ridgidy would have been a grave loss that need not be born.

May Universal wisdom flow in each of your lives.  May you be blessed with expansive intuitive awareness and feel the gratitude that being in touch with that power and all it provides.

Peace.

Walking “The Way”…. My Way.

Most of us really do know when we have reached maximum saturation, numbing repetitive existence, cyclical breaking points, or any other number of visceral “wake up calls” that speak deeply of our personal need to step out of our current form of existence.  We know.. and we often delay.  And delay.  I have been no exception to this form of existence… until recently.

I had heard about this journey called El Camino de Santiago de Compostella or as often described as The Way through a book of Shirley MacLaines entitled, “Camino”.  It inspired me deeply and haunted my evolving bucket list with the notion that I really could and must do this thing.  As life often pushes a point that we don’t lurch forward in a timely enough manner, I was re-introduced to this trek through one of my all time favorite authors, Paulo Coehlo’s work, “The Pilgrimage”.  Again a nudge to figure this out, and make it happen.

Well folks I get all the reasons why I could quite rightly justify putting this thing off indefinitely…. I’ve been an overwhelmed homeschooling mother of 4, full-time homemaker, two children with special learning needs, married to a disturbingly jealous husband bent on monitoring all my time, invested as an ongoing holistic health student and really just far too over committed.

Circumstances change as time moves forward and my excuses continued to validate why now just wasn’t ripe yet for leaving.  After one failed attempt in the spring of 2011 and nearly 10 full years after having first been inspired and drawn to this grand plan, I made the unilateral decision that early summer of 2012 would be my year, come hell or high water!

And so it is!

Providence would have it that I must have been meant to be accompanied, rather than trekking off from all my worldly responsibilities alone as I had envisioned.  Brilliant.  My peregrino companion was to be a colleague and dear friend with a relish for adventure and stretching her comfort zones internationally for years, just like me.  What additional incalculable talents she also brought to the undertaking was an international street sense and magnificently fluent and beautifully spoke Spanish.  Incalculable value is not an overstatement for this gift of the tongue, wholly lacking in myself with a bit of scattered and unimpressive high school French.

It was plainly understood before we set off that while we were companioned, alone time would be essential for us both.  I knew it would be crucial for me, as the preceding 20 years never left me without an uninvited companion or at least a demanding interruption every moment, not excluding trips to the bathroom.  Sound familiar anyone?  We would both need time to drop into meditative nothingness,… sheer walking bliss and an off the map kind of presence as we trudged along.  When we were walking with full presence, we would connect with others as the pilgrim life generously offers all travelers if they wish and relish in the personalities with zest, that could only be found on this type of quest.

There is a quality of energy that can only be found on this path and it cannot fully be explained as it feels and resonates differently for everyone.  But what effect it has creates a desire to keep going even when the body is clearly stating that it is time to stop.  Some pilgrims arrive and shortly thereafter find themselves addicted, so much so that they walk this trek or every given Camino starting point many times over.  Some make it their life’s mission to walk it indefinitely.

My most ardent desire was to literally “dump” all of my lifetimes worth of baggage along this journey and rebirth a lighter and freer new me.  I walked and talked to myself incessantly,… forgiving every soul that had crossed me.  I realized it was necessary to forgive some multiple times and the endless array of memory flashbacks was frighteningly acute.

I also wanted to hold a certain presence that can only be found in an unfettered life.  Could I possibly hold the same focus of singularity that I was able to embrace by simply choosing to get up daily and just walk?

I am going to tell you the answer…. savoring the moments as fully as I did then,… one quest at a time.   More to come!
