Beyond 70 and still reaching for the Stars

Its never to late for DreamsSociety tends to label us according to our age.  We are told that at 18 you are now an adult.  We are told that when we reach 60 we are already winding down and getting ready to move into retirement mode.  Therefore when I reached 70 years it had come with a bit of anxiety that life was incredibly short and that I probably didn’t have many years left on this planet … and yet at the same time I was project managing a new build, doing all the painting inside and out, laying payers, creating gardens, building retaining walls and working like a trogon.  The two parts of me were at odds with each other.  Our conditioning was telling me that I was old and the real me was thinking I feel no different than I did when I was 20 or 50 I still wanted to achieve a successful business.  I still wanted to make a difference in this world.  I still wanted all the juicy aspects of life … in fact I just plain wanted to live brilliantly …

We are what we feel, what our mindset is and how we approach life in general.  There are days I want to shout to the world I AM ALIVE, see me ROAR  and I do 🙂 much to the amazement and perhaps annoyance of my immediate neighbours.  Do I care NO I just want to dance and sing at the top of my voice … so I do.

Indeed like many I have been through my own challenges – some doozies, where my life has been turned upside down. The absolute love of my life walked out of our 18 year marriage without a word, just a letter in the mail telling me our marriage was over and it was not negotiable (his words). To reaching an absolute high in my business and coming home and walking into the most horrendous 2 -1/2 years of intense bizarre bullying.  All due to someone trying to take my elderly (dementia ridden)  neighbour’s home and her money and I was trying to protect her.   I had never experienced such evil intent before, so it was a real challenging learning curve with huge deep healing that needed to occur for me to sell and move from that area at a time when the market was very slow and prices very deflated. At the completion of my healing,  I sold my home in .15 minutes with it not even listed on the market.

I move to the Sunshine coast and began building a new home.  My sweetest moment was my son telling me about his conversation with his father.  “I am helping mum move this weekend.”  Oh is she going into a retirement home (ex) …. ‘Oh NO! Dad she is building a new home.”  Love my son to bits.

Was it easy building a new home when the building industry deems a women on her own is fair game, let alone one who is in her late 60’s … and then building a Goddess Accommodation beside the existing home when she was 70 and not only having it built but actively participating in many aspects of the construction and building – it certainly raised a few eyebrows.  And yes they tried it on, but as I said I have developed a can do attitude to what I can achieve and I go for it – and I wasn’t above telling them to F###K off if they were negative and wouldn’t bring positive solutions to the table.

What I achieved with a secondary building on the same title, has never been done before here, so not only did I need to believe I could do it,  I had to prove (via a lot of research) that it could be done and then find trades who understood it could be done.

The point is that it doesn’t matter what chronological age you are – it is all about your mindset.  I fully intend living my highest potential (and encouraging others to do the same).  Imagine the combined power of HEART-WISDOM that mature people have – what could be achieved to transform our world.  A world who valued the older generation for their vast life experience – you cant buy that shit.  It is golden.

Life Long Dreams  – A Fable

Mary, Ethel and Rosemary looked at each other in excitement, today was the long awaited day when they set of on an adventure of a life time.  They had spent months at motor bike school, learning to ride.  Although they were the most mature of all the students, each had passed with flying colours and now held in their weathered hands, bright shinny new motor bike licences.

Healing the Heart of Your Business

It would seem my latest blog has caused some interesting comments.  The one below  caught my eye –

 … Your latest blog is so on track!  It’s become an industry full of false hope and pocket lining designed to lure in souls of lower vibration who are non actualised in consciousness. I’ve seen this breed in action and surprise, surprise!! Their mind is always on the go, they multitask all day long, lack quality rest and sleep because they are working on the next business plan or mocking up a new course to promote!! One particular person I know even forgets to pay for the meal they eat when dining out because their mind is racing to the next venture, next location meeting or free consultation to win a sale! I’m not suggesting that there aren’t genuine healers out there because there are … But surely they are few and probably charge reasonably….

Above all else Heart ‘n Soul entrepreneurs need to be integrity.  It is an expectation that if someone is claiming to come from their heart then they are in integrity and can be trusted.  For this section of the community, (especially in business) it is important that this category needs to be even more vigilant about integrity because it affects the whole.

I have been challenged around writing this next blog post – in fact I have fallen behind.  Yet I know if it is not flowing it is because all the information is not downloaded and ready to be seen.  This year has already been amazing!

In January 2015 there was a huge shift in energy around business.  To recap:  In 2014 I lost my business mojo … my passion for what I do because no matter what I did people could not ‘hear’ what I did. There were a few reasons for this. To me I felt I had lost my passion, and someone said to me that the word passion was Christ on the Cross – so I went looking for another word to describe that feeling/expression.  I came up with vitality … and as I tapped into the energy around that word I heard ‘UnLeash the Colour in YOU’.

Money LOVES Me

Money LOVES Me … Yummy, Yummy Money

Money LOVES Me in Business

We all want to believe that love makes the world go around, yet in fact, whether we want it to be so or not – Money makes the world go around.  Me I want the whole world to be loving and generously so.  My heart and soul cries for love to be the highest denominator, the highest value 24/7, in our world …yet it is not so.  Why?  There is the trend to focus on making more money, or how to create more money, who will buy more products, what language will pull in more of the market share so people will buy more of ….

It is not my perspective and thankfully, there is now an emerging trend that is approaching business in a new more enlightened way … and it is gathering speed. Continue reading Money LOVES Me

Due Diligence in Relationships

When two people meet for the first time – there is a lot of sizing up.  Will I like this person, is this person someone I could fall in love with.  Or will we become good friends.  Alternatively in a business sense, can we do business together in a way that is in alignment with my values.

Often when there is chemistry between two people on that first meet, it is often interpreted to mean that this person is Mr or Mrs RIGHT! The fresh bloom of love is such an exciting time and we can get hooked straight up.

However it is actually a warning bell going off! Continue reading Due Diligence in Business and Relationships

Manipulation & Control in Business

Manipulation & Control in Business.

Business Success Healing - Manipulation & Control

Is being genuinely supported, a challenge … especially in business. Does support come with a hidden agenda. If I do this for you then I ‘expect’ you to do that for me. Alternatively, if I give you ‘my time’ in any form – then I expect you will buy from me. In business the current flavour is to do free strategy sessions, however the agenda (most times) is to sell you into a high priced coaching programs – or some other form of high priced products. High prices does not always equal quality products. Continue reading Manipulation & Control in Business

Business SUCCESS Healing

Have you been challenged around Business Success

I thought I would show you how I approach Transformational Healing.

If you have been challenged around Business Success, Money and Relationships – it may be from a deep genetic memory.  Pushing forward, working hard to achieve success is often a pointer that there is something blocking you Shining, with ease. If you know you are hiding your brilliance then you might benefit from my experience.  I have been quite focused on re-launching my work after a break and it has been an interesting experience, as I watch and observe what is popping up for me to heal.  As I was writing the blogs on Denial, it came to my attention that I was in denial about how much I wanted to be successful.  This ‘denial’ had convinced me that wanted to retire and put my feet up.  Except that was a furphy.

Conscious Communication – How important is it?

Conscious Communication – How important is it?

We we shove our emotions down and not transform them it creates conflict in communication.

The hidden side of energy that people perceive about you and make a judgement about you … before you even open your mouth.

Have you ever met someone you felt was “prickly”? Well they were. Unresolved emotional issues/beliefs  build up in the energy field preventing conscious communication.  They build up like little sharp points in the energy field and when your own energy field comes in contact with them, you feel a jab, like a needle jabbed into the skin. You may feel a reaction and step back, or even speak sharply to the other person, because even if they have not opened their mouths, you have perceived that you have just been attacked.
