Big News from Wisdom Rx

 

It’s been a couple months and many changes since we last connected. Much has transpired in our lives and we have some wonderful news to share-

First – Susan’s book Not So Little Cora is now officially published!!!!

It’s available in paperback and e-book on Amazon and Barnes and Noble in the United States, Canada and Mexico as well as on Amazon in other countries around the world.

If you’d like to buy a copy or leave a review- here are the links:

US- Paperback and E-book

CAN- Paperback

MX- E-book

For me, Susan, it took a great deal of courage, hard work, along with support from many others to turn Not So Little Cora into a reality. I’ve never shied away from hard work, but I’d often allowed the naysayer voice in my head to be louder than the voice in my heart. I’m heartened by the outreach Not So Little Cora is beginning to have.

Here are some pictures from the book launch in Mexico on Valentine’s day.

More than 50 friends gathered in our home to celebrate.

And a picture from Susan’s first school visit in Nova Scotia.

And Other News…

We moved to Nova Scotia, Canada in March.
Our time living in Mexico has come to a close and the next chapter of our lives called us here. Mexico has a forever place in our hearts, and we’ll return there as visitors from a new home base. We took the month of March to rest and reinvigorate. Moving is no small task as you know. 😊

Our doors are open and sessions times available. Thanks for your support as we cared for ourselves.

Help Bring Not So Little Cora to the World

Help Bring Not So Little Cora to the World

 

There is something in each of us that is bursting at the seams.

It can’t wait to come out and play in the world.

As some of you know, I was inspired, some would say ‘called’, to write Not So Little Cora, a children’s book for adults too. The journey of writing this is something that I think we all can relate to. I had to face into and make peace with all the dark jackals that wanted to talk me out of manifesting what my heart was calling me to create.

This is a time in the world when each of us is being called to live joyously and wildly. We are all are being inspired to arise. In creating this book, I wanted to give children and adults the remembrance of what it’s like to live unfettered through love connected to the ALL of Life.

As Cora’s friend Marco says,

“Love is bigger than Big and knows just what to do.”

What if that playful, curious, wonder-filled child in each of us had a place at the table of our lives?  I want more of that inside me.

A friend who read Not So Little Cora wrote,

“I’m sure kids will love it, but I’ll be very excited to give more than a few copies to adults too!! Not So Little Cora taught me so much. I’ll be reading it more than once. Cora awoke the kid inside me that I had to protect for so long. But now, I’m inspired to bring that inner kid out again and see life from a higher and more loving perspective!” C.P. San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.

I’m writing to you because you are each part of my spiritual family, my family of love.

Today I’ve launched an IndieGogo fundraiser to help with publishing, illustrations, website, Spanish translation and marketing.

Will you help bring Not So Little Cora into the world? I’d love your help in championing the cause of creativity, innocence and love that Cora embodies.

Thank you all for your love and support for both David and myself in the Wisdom Rx community. And for helping this book come to fruition. I’m excited that Not So Little Cora will soon be out in the world.

Love,

Susan, David and Cora

 

Is This Happening To You?

Walking on Water

Is This Happening to You?

We don’t know about you, but any aspect of our lives that is not “on course” with the truth of our being, our true north is up for realignment.

Phew, we’ve felt a little overwhelmed at times.  Have you?

The depth of dying and resurrecting that is happening in and around us is a wonder to behold and sometimes frightening to be in the midst of.

So many “sacred cows” that we’ve created, or the world has created around us are falling by the wayside. When you listen to your heart of hearts, what do you need shift?

The clearer we get the longer our list gets as to the things we need to take care of to align ourselves. At the same time, we can no longer run ourselves the way we used to. No pushing or going past our energy reserves.

So, here’s what we’re learning:

    • Balance work and to do lists with the battery of joy, fun and rest
    • When something is over don’t put any more energy into it.
    • Trust that endings bring the next new life into form.
    • Begin your day in quiet meditation. Just your intention to be still allows your consciousness to really focus and possibility to flow.
    • When you feel fatigue, rest. Even a 15 minute or less “power nap” can reinvigorate you for the rest of the day.

Let yourself be open to promptings from the life around you. Grace and creativity are relentlessly present. The creativity that Life is, is always looking for ways to get our attention and work for us so that we can adjust the direction of our lives to produce greater joy and wonder. The signal of our true north continues to refine and becomes brighter and present.

What would you add to this list? We love learning with you.

The Heart and Mind of Pilgrimage

Heart and Mind of Pilfgrimage

The Heart and Mind of Pilgrimage

We are weeks away from physically starting our pilgrimage in England. However, the pilgrimage has begun.  We are already shedding some old ways of being because we have committed to step on those ancient trails.

Even though these old ways of thinking and acting have clearly exhausted their value, it’s surprising to notice our curious attachment to keeping them. On the other side of these attachments, fresh new life is emerging.

There are seeds of newness in all of us, just itching to bloom and grow themselves into the necessary aliveness we need to feel a sense of thriving. There is a great joy in thriving that’s very different from plain old fashioned good habits that can keep us locked into ways of being that cramp our lives.

All of us can commit to the heart and mind of pilgrimage in the midst of our everyday lives. It all depends on allowing the seeds of truth, of change, of greater knowing within us blooming and pushing away the embedded old habits our lives can become as they grow

What would it be like to go to the grocery store as a pilgrim?
— as one who is open to a journey where the sacred is revealed in surprising ways.

There is a longing deep within each of us that wants to walk away from what shrinks us into the sacred air of what grows us and gives us joy. 

We are discovering that the commitment to a pilgrimage is what initiates surprising sweet revelations and allows for the casting away of the old comforts that insulate us from the rich Life we really are.

What part of your life today might you approach as a pilgrim?

We’d love hear your answer.  Please share your response below.

Our Pilgrimage Has Already Begun

Our Pilgrimage Has Already Begun

Some would say heading off on a pilgrimage and shutting down for a period of time is a little bit crazy. However, we’ll be doing just that. We are leaving behind our connection to clients, home, all the momentum and trappings of our lives in order to stay honest to the soulful truth that we each are.

The bells of San Miguel are joyously clanging in the background filling the air with their reminder of the comfort and beauty of where we live. And yet, their bell song reminds us to stop, drop and pray so that a greater presence of love and grace can prevail in each of our lives.

Our pilgrimage has already begun.

We and our dear friend Dwight Konrad who will be journeying with us, are each stepping toward the rich pathway of what’s next in each of our lives.

The perfect truth is, we do not know who we will be, or what will follow after having walked the sacred pathways of England and Scotland. All we know is that it’s time to cast away the old molds, no matter how beautifully created, that hold us in ancient limitation.

Each of you, and happily most of you, are aware that every one of us is on a pilgrimage of our own creation. So, perhaps you’ll dance with us in these rich questions.

No matter how beautiful, no matter how comfortable, no matter how much investment, is the creation of my life truly serving the song of my heart?

Or as we heard someone say recently, “If I really followed my heart then my life would change, so would my family, my marriage, maybe even my career.  I’m too scared to change even though I really want to, so I’ll just stay the same.”

If the song in your heart is on loud and the comfort you’ve felt is no longer satisfying, what might you lay down so that you can step into the calling of your life?

To be continued…..

Love, David, Susan and Dwight

Disassembling Fear

Disassembling Fear

Disassembling Fear

Have you noticed that there is a lot of fear in the air?

Yes, we all keep living our lives. We live the best lives we know how to live, creating goodness wherever we can and still… there is an atmosphere charged with fear that we live within.

Uncertainty has become something we all fear at times. Here are some things we’re learning from those we are working with.

 

There is a great intelligence inside the root of fear that we have confused with how we experience uncertainty.

 

It’s time for all of us to put into slow motion the pervasive sensation of fear, sometimes called anxiety, that can result in a depressed sense of vitality and possibility.

There are some straightforward tools we’d like to offer so you can reprogram what is fear to you.

 

Take a moment just now and ask yourself this question;

Am I under threat, am I safe where I am?

 

Don’t just think this question check out the environment by looking around, and feeling around yourself. Ask yourself, “Am I under threat?” after you have investigated your environment.

Hopefully there is no threat and you can begin to put into slow motion the free-wheeling sense of fear that you’ve been experiencing. **

 

Another question;

If your environment presents as safe, ask yourself whose fear might I be experiencing?

 

Because we are all interconnected, sometimes we can be feeling the physical sensation of fear that actually originates in another person or sometimes within a family.

At this time in the world it is very important that we learn this to distinguish between atmospheric fear versus real threat.

** If when you originally felt your environment there was something or someone to be afraid of, take the appropriate steps you need to relieve that fear-  change your location, ask for help, trust your instinct that say leave.

If you are genuinely afraid act, move, leave.

 

The root intelligence behind pure fear is one of the gifts of being a human that has helped the species we are survive. As the environmental threats lessened in the human condition, our imaginations began to connect to fantasy fears, that confused our mind’s ability to separate fact from fiction

 

 Ask yourself throughout the day:    Am I safe or am I experiencing fear?

F.E.A.R. = Fantasy, Expectations, Appearing, Real.

 

To reclaim your birthright of creativity, of natural healing and personal strength, it is important to disentangle yourself from fantasy fear. Then your natural talents can inform your mind and you can make decisions from a mindset fueled by your soul level wisdom.

In Love,

David and Susan
