The New Sisterhood: let’s co-create the reality of our dreams
In September of 2021 I created a vision board while my girlfriends and I spent a long weekend in Lincoln City, Oregon. There’s a clipping on there next to a pair of angel wings that reads “From the Ashes…Shine on” For over a year now I’ve been looking at this vision board which hangs in my closet and meditating on those words and the beautiful places that share the space on this board.
Here were are in 2023 and it’s time.
It’s time for the Spirit of the Phoenix to rise. It’s time for me to take the lessons from all that burned to the ground in a heap of ashes over the past three years and create something truly beautiful and authentically me. My 2023 word of the year is (not suprisingly) SHINE! Althought the path ahead isn’t crystal clear yet, I know that I want to invite you, my beloved reader and friend, to join me this year as we learn to co-create the reality of our dreams through intentional work with our thoughts and the Divine Energy of the Universe. Here’s what’s currently planned:
1) From the Ashes workshop
February 22-March 15, 2023: Boise, Idaho
The past three years have been teaching me how to face my darkest fears, practice radical self love and grant myself grace to get up again when I fall. This 4-week workshop is designed to help others who want to co-create the life of our dreams alongside me, through visualization, writing prompts, music, and intentional conversation. Here’s an overview of the themes for each of the four weeks:
- Vision: putting ourself in the picture of our dream reality
- Fear: examining our limiting beliefs
- Permission: taking fearlessly authentic action steps
- Enchantment: stepping into our magical Universe
We will meet in my home on Wednesday evenings from 6:00-8:00 pm, starting on Ash Wednesday, February 22nd, 2023. Light snacks and drinks will be served. Let Love Rise readers can use coupon code “Phoenix” to receive a gift of gratitude discount at checkout from the Eventbrite registration link. Non-locals can look for an on-line version of this workshop in March of 2023! 🙂
1) Soul Grow Book Club
February 26, 2023: Boise, Idaho
Last weekend I held my first Soul Growth Book Club of the year. We discussed one of my all-time favorite books, The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz. If you haven’t read it, I cannot recommend it highly enough. The simple message of the Four Agreements seems so obvious, and yet I find myself challenged to uphold them on a regular basis (my daughter’s 16th birthday a few weeks ago was a prime example, as I took a comment of hers personally and it derailed my day, sigh, and rise again! ).
Last June I wrote about the transformational power of The Four Agreements in my post The Toltec Scar. Please check it out if you’d like to learn more about the power of this book. And if you have read it, leave a comment below about which of the agreements is the most meaningful/ transformational for you!
This month’s Soul Growth Book Club pick is Atomic Habits: Tiny Changes, Remarkable Results: An Easy and Proven Way to Build Good Habits and Break Bad Ones by James Clear. Perhaps you’ve noticed an energetic shift lately, as if life is starting to pick up pace again. You’re totally right! As of last weekend, all the planets are moving direct again after several months of Mars, Mercury and Uranus retrogrades. It’s time to put the thoughts that have been brewing in our hearts and minds into action, one tiny change at a time.
If you’re local, you can reserve your spot via Eventbrite and join me and a group of open-minded spiritual warriors as we discuss the essence of this book in my home on Sunday, February 26th from 2-4pm. If you’re not local to Boise, I still invite you to read this book with us and leave a comment about what tiny changes you plan to make in your life to get you one step closer to creating the reality of your dreams!
3) Spirit of the Phoenix Retreat
Finally, I am most excited to put on your radar my innaugural retreat, the Spirt of the Phoenix, this FALL 2023. Imagine yourself in a beautiful sanctuary, surrounded by a group of divine women; open-minded spiritual seekers; love warriors; goddesses. Through guided meditation, relaxing time in nature, intentional conversation, music, journaling, yoga, and laughter we will unearth our divine spirit and explore ways in which we can shine our light into our own heart spaces and into the lives of others.
This retreat will be limited to 6. Details are still downloading from the Universe, so be sure to subscribe to Let Love Rise (fill out that “want a dose of daily love” on the right hand side of this post) to be among the first to know more as the details unfold!
Does these song lyrics resonate with you?“You’ve been trying to put me in a box, saying this is it, you’ll never be enough–take those dreams and put them on the shelf. And for many years I was holding back, thinking I should be more like this and that. But then I saw the real truth of it all. Now I am not who you think I am, I am so much more! I am one with source. I am limitless, infinite, powerful, abundant, complete from the start, creator of all, I am that I am!” -Fia, I am
If so, listen to Fia’s song “I am” and look at your 2023 calendar and ask yourself on which part of this journey you might like to join me? From the Ashes workshop in February-March of 2023, Soul Growth Book Club monthly throughout 2023 or Spirit of the Phoenix Retreat in Fall of 2023. It’s going to be an amazing year, I feel it in the fire of the Phoenix that’s circulating in the core of my being. Let’s be the light! Let’s shine so brightly with our love that others will want to do the same! Let’s be the change we want to see! And let’s do it together. This is the new Sisterhood of the Moon. I hope you’ll join me.
