Sharing Beauty Stories

leaf with Dew

 

We wanted to share a blog written by our partner in Journey’s In Transformation, Gwen Mazer, so you could have taste of the heart and passion she has for Beauty. In March 2017 our RetreatAwakening Into Beauty centers around Beauty from the inside out where we can breathe in its essence and connect with our source.

FINDING  BEAUTY
by Gwen Mazer

Beauty knows no bounds, she is to be found everywhere.  She awes us with her stunning variations, in the spirit of nature with a walk in the woods, the infinite shapes and colors to be found in a flower, the fluttering of a hummingbird, the sparkle and roar of the sea. We are moved by the symphony of light, the sunrise, sunset, touched by the brilliance of the moon on a crystal clear night, surprised by the colors in a puddle after the rain.

Beauty manifests as joy in the delight and wonder of a gaggle of little children, the sound of their chatter, the colorful bouquet of their assorted clothing, and the air of innocence as they go ambling down the street hand in hand.

Beauty takes our breathe away with the fluid movement and grace of a ballerina, thrills us with the soaring flight of a modern dancer as he leaps gracefully through space, sends us into a moment of heavenly grace on the notes of music exquisitely played.

Physical beauty can be joyful to behold, can cause pain and anguish if we indulge in comparison or mistake glamour for real beauty. It can unravel our minds with desire, rage, envy, or lust. It can cause us to lose our senses, to forget the real source of beauty the light that shines from within.

In beauty is the embrace of true connection, serenity, compassion, love of the face lined with years of living, the delight of a baby born brand new, the eros of true love found and consummated, empathy, caring and deep intention to understand the feelings of another.

Beauty of being is discovered in our vulnerability, when we are willing to be truly seen by another. Beauty is found in our willingness to explore our perceptions, our thoughts, when we let go of our ideas of the other and realize we are all part of the human family.

Beauty can visit in unexpected moments, times when we have been cracked open enough to hear the quiet whisper of our inner voice and we listen. We may be guided to a fork in the road, to a path untraveled. We trust beauty to be our guide and travel onward as she lights our way towards wisdom and well-being.

We’d love to hear what’s beautiful in your life. Please share below.

Yours in Beauty,
David and Susan

The Next Wisdom Rx

On this Thanksgiving weekend, we want to share with you the upgrade of our website. We chose to do this now because one of the ways we can all support one another is to stand up in our own integrity, love, wisdom and power. We need each other in our full radiance thriving to navigate our futures together.

With over 5 years of blogs and videos that are now cross referenced to a category of needs that we all have at different times. We’ve turned what we’ve written into a usable bank of information that can serve you quickly and easily.​

Also, we’re excited to announce that we are offering a retreat called Awakening Into Beauty in San Miguel de Allende with a new partner Gwen Mazer the last week of March 2017. You can sign up to be notified as soon as we launch our early bird special coming shortly.

Navigating in Uncertain Times

Change is afoot- no shit! We have been moved by the enormous range of shocked responses to the US election. There is a vast sorrow filled ache present in America that has been there for quite a few years.

Many haven’t wanted to see the turmoil, sorrow, suffering and divisiveness that have been in the hearts of so many across the United States.

What kind of world do you want to live in? We want to live in a world where compassion rules. The souls that we are, are vastly bigger than any momentary political social moment. It’s that vastness that allows us to be compassionate in the face of fear and uncertainty.

How To Navigate Uncertain Times

We are witnessing many who are shocked, suffering, sad, grieving, and also euphoric. Getting overrun by emotions clouds our clear connection to our own soul wisdom. We miss getting our own prescription of knowing that we can use to navigate stormy waters. You have a prescription of knowing just waiting to download into you.

How do we clear the way?

First- Dealing with Shock

In shock we move into survival and forget to see the big picture not just the systems that aren’t working or the suffering that’s around us and in our own hearts. In shock we cannot see a clear path before us.

If you want to learn more about how to cope with shock get our Free Survival Guide- What to Do When Your World Falls Apart.

Second- Make Friends with Uncertainty

When we really allow for uncertainty and risk what we know, we open ourselves up to possibility and shift. There is an abundance of opportunity and a pathway to joy if we are willing to open to the bigger life that we are.

Third- You Are Not Alone

Our thoughts and fears not only divide us from one another, but make us feel separate from Source. The very spirit in the air is filled with love. When we open up our hearts and allow the love that is present to come in, we will receive the love and guidance we need to not feel separate. We have to fold in the sacred into this achiness because it will help us be clear and know what to say and how to be.

And most importantly – Steer with your wisdom, heart and integrity.

We have been conditioned to think and feel in ways that aren’t true to our hearts and souls. There is an abundance of knowing just waiting for all to call on. We can learn when we open our hearts and grow our wisdom how to heal ourselves and the planet. What a great opportunity lies before us. Fierce wisdom clarity and love will heal us.

And If it’s difficult to see you way through these stormy seas, please post in the comments or contact us.
We are here to help!

In love and possibility,

Susan and David

Beauty is your buddy

Beauty Is Your Buddy

Don’t you love the experience of something so beautiful that you feel moved so much that sweet tears show up in your eyes and you feel the goodness of life itself.

Beauty is a healing balm to the stresses in our lives. Take time to notice the beauty around you and immerse yourself in it.

Here’s a movie you might really enjoy.  It takes place in 17th century France and tells the story of a woman who creates a beautiful garden masterpiece.

We found it inspiring. We hope you will too.

Woundology

Carolyn Myss, who we’re fans of, uses a great reference phrase- Woundology.

She describes how we can become addicted to and create an entire identity around all the bad stuff and the corresponding wounds that have ever happened to us.

Sometimes in our desire to heal a wound we become addicted to forever solving the problem that never seems to go away. We can honor our wounds by placing them on a sacred altar.

What altar you might ask? 

An altar built from a compassionate understanding that horror happens and its presence can be overcome and exceeded through the power of compassionate awareness and love.

When that happens the end of the wound occurs. And we are set free from the ache of the past. The memory remains but the sorrow dissipates and turns into compassionate wisdom.

Join us in ending being run by the past so we can create a future in love.

What wound will you place on this sacred altar?
