Flick off 2014, Come here delicious new year!

So how was 2014 for  you? I know so many people, businesses, families and communities who experienced a load of struggle in 2014. Me included, in fact. The year started with being really, really sick. I had surgery to fix a CSF leak and it took months before I really felt well again. So I…

Wow already – Day 6 of The Receiving Project! After yesterday’s lovely little windfall I’m still beaming and am really feeling the message of today’s email from Jo Anna – when we are open to receiving the gifts of the Universe, we are open to feeling how much we are loved, just because we exist.…

Looking at What We DON’T Have

Writing yesterday’s Receiving Project update I was struck about what a quiet day I’d had and how some people would see it as a boring day (and it was a cold rainy Saturday after all 🙂 )! I was just resolving to get more life into my life when Jo Anna’s Day 5 email popped…
