As some of you may or may not know, I have just returned from Part 2 of the Ritual and Facilitation Training Retreat. Our focus for this part of the training was on working with The Shadow and the various archetypes involved with Shadow. While I am still processing all that came forward for me during this transformational experience, what I did learn was that to truly love and accept myself, I need to embrace ALL of me – including those aspects of me that I do not wish to look at or acknowledge. Yes, I have them. We all do.

Have you heard the saying,“Laughter is the best medicine”? As the Goddess of Laughter & Possibilities, I truly believe this to be true. I love to laugh. No surprise there with the Goddess of Laughter as my Influencing Goddess Archetype! Laughing is infectious and humor can be very healing. It increases feelings of happiness. Laughter creates connection. Laughter truly is potent medicine for the mind, body, and spirit. Humor and laughter can strengthen your immune system, boost your energy, diminish pain and protect you from the damaging effects of stress.

Ahhh, midlife...a time of reflection and re-creation in many ways. It is also a time of exploration around the terms “Passion” and “Purpose”. “Passion” is defined as a strong, almost uncontrollable, emotion/feeling towards someone or something. “Purpose” is defined as the reason – the why - something exists, is created, used, intended. By these definitions, it makes sense that your Passion and Purpose will shift for you as you live more life. Being in my 50's, this has been a time of reflective/inner work and defining what is important to me – what my passions are and what I see as my purpose in life. What I felt was my passion in my 20's is not what I am passionate about now in my 50's. I was passionate about acting, singing, and dancing – basically performing. I loved the theater – and still do – but I no longer feel my purpose is to entertain others.

Did you cringe when you read the above? If you did, then let me state this another way....You are the Divine in expression! As a divine being, you were born to be great! Success, abundance, and joy is your birthright. If you're not experiencing the wonderful life that is your divine inheritance, it is time to look at your beliefs around success, your definition of success and joy and abundance. Are the meanings you give to these concepts your own or are they the meanings taught to you that have been handed down generation after generation? What defines success, joy, and abundance for me may not be the same definition for you, so the first step is defining what those terms mean for YOU! Not for your parents, your teachers, your boss, your community, etc. but what they mean for YOU!
