Don’t Quit Your Day Dream

Posted on August 24, 2014 | Filed Under: Life Lessons, Love Lessons | Comments

“Our life is composed greatly from dreams, from the unconscious attempting to weave us and our desires together. ” Anaïs Nin Usually we’re told to make our dreams come true. We’re told we’re responsible for wrangling our dreams into existence, and the fault is ours if we don’t succeed. If someone knew what success really was, which any meditative state will reveal, they will know it is not something to tie down nor does it require any type of violent force. The actual truth to how dreams come true is quite hidden. The short answer is that dreams are a… Read More »

Oh Manitoba!  We packed up the family and headed to Clear Lake for our annual Father’s Day Gathering. With 20 people strong all staying in town, we opted for a quiet Bed and Breakfast retreat to spend our evenings. It felt familiar to be back on prairie farmland – reminiscent of where I spent the early years of my life. It was raining all weekend so we indulged in these indoor microwave s’mores since a campfire was out of the question. They were sticky, gooey heavenly goodness! Our bedroom was absolutely dreamy. Soft and cozy perfection that left us inspired… Read More »

Calgary. Snowing one day, sunshine the next. Spring is in the air and I’m incessantly craving health food like my green smoothie concoctions with all my magic oils and powders. By lunchtime I crave green salads sprinkled with pumpkin seeds and hemp hearts, dressed in a creamy homemade raw dressing. This weekend Devon was here and we visited what’s become our favourite restaurant, the Lake House. This restaurant fits in beautifully in our natural Rocky Mountain backdrop we get to call home. Every detail is rustic, yet artful. The nature view of the water and secluded island is absolutely lovely, and… Read More »

Release Winter ~Expand into Spring!

by Liz Vequist Spring is traditionally a time of rebirth and renewal. In order to expand into Spring, it is helpful to first lighten our load. Let’s explore how we can release the heavy contracted feel of winter so that we can easily expand into Spring. 1. Detoxify your Internal Environment Release the heavy meats, fats and salty foods that keep us warm and protected in winter. Eat a lighter diet with more vegetables, especially lots of greens. Dark leafy greens (kale, collards, swiss chard), bitter astringent greens (dandelion and mustard greens), sprouts (green pea shoots, alfalfa, mung) and mixed… Read More »

Why Your Business Needs Feminine Energy

Posted on February 14, 2014 | Filed Under: Business Lessons | Comments

You already feel it, don’t you? That it’s not just your product or service that will make you successful, but the energy you put behind it. Which is exactly the way you want it, otherwise everything would already be a commodity! If our business doesn’t have a healthy sense of feminine energy, we’re going to need to work harder, push more people to buy, believe that we’re all competing on price, and have a very hard time getting ahead.   Not to mention the inevitable collapse of the sisterhood that happens when women try to act like men. When you… Read More »

I have always loved the idea of creating a simple and peaceful life. For a while I was living life just as another cog in the wheel, working just to support the survival of the system, while neglecting my own dreams, goals, and passions.  All the while continuing to worry every day about whether or not I would be able to survive. But I no longer have any interest in a soul-less, worrisome existence, at any price. There is infinite beauty in this experience we call life – abundance and contentedness is really easy when we know what’s important.  It… Read More »

The #1 Flaw in The Pursuit of Happiness

Posted on January 5, 2014 | Filed Under: Life Lessons | Comments

Sometimes we feel the need to force ourselves to have happy thoughts for fear of attracting negativity into our lives by thinking the wrong things. Yet manifestation works in a variety of ways, and being happy isn’t the only way  to have an amazing life. Besides, forced happiness is actually a resistant state rather than an attractive one. And I’m not saying don’t be happy. I’m saying, be happy if it’s the easiest range of positive emotion you can find, but I suspect that if you’re like me, you’ve noticed it’s not always a suitable emotion. Many of my readers have an avid interest in Law of… Read More »

Divine Gifts: What Happens When They Never Get Opened

There is probably no more reliable measure of whether a person is from an oppressive lineage than a complete lack of self esteem and self worth. Although the avoidance of ‘tooting one’s own horn’ could be matter of humility, or even cultural social skills – too many issues of self worth are attributed to the idea that “one should not brag”. Truthfully, it’s not because of humility that people hold back celebrating their own self. It’s more often that they truly don’t feel there’s much to celebrate. If you compliment someone who is a stranger to being recognized for their… Read More »
