I Gave Birth!

I Gave Birth! By Marianne Simon I’ve given birth! What’s making a sales call compared to that? As I sit at my desk, list in hand, my palms sweating, my heart pounding, I have to wonder, what is the big deal? How is it that making a few phone calls to friends and supporters has me in such a tizzy? After all, I’ve done much bigger, much scarier things. For example, I’ve given birth! After spending 9 months nauseous, ravenous, then … [Read more...]

Do I Really Want It?

Do I Really Want It? By Marianne Simon As I handed over my credit card in answer to Loral Langemeier’s call to join their team and commit to wealth, I did so with a strange sense of calm.  A sense that it was just time. Over the past few weeks I’d been hearing her question a lot:  Are you committed?  Do you really want this?  Are you ready to bring on your full game?  And each time I would think ‘Well, yes – but …’  There was always a … [Read more...]

Swimming With Sharks: What I Learned From The Real Deal

Swimming with Sharks – What I Learned from the Real Deal By Marianne Simon They had warned us in advance we would be seeing sharks.  They told us we should all stay together, and under no circumstances, should we go adventuring on our own. From what I had seen so far on my vacation in Fiji no one had come back with missing limbs or blood dripping from wounds, so I had decided to be brave and go for it. I did not get off to a great … [Read more...]

Spirit Bodies

namaste

Spirit Bodies By Shelby Phillips Weinstein I was reliving an experience I had in my intuitive meditation class last week. We were asked to postulate sitting our bodies in a chair as if they were separate from us and stand with our hands on their shoulders. As I approached my body, I began to cry. At the end of the exercise, I received validation from my teacher that my tears were confirmation of my connection with spirit. Just as many of … [Read more...]

5 Ways To Access Your Higher Self

5 Ways To Access Your Higher Self By Nikki Striefler When we think of ourselves, we normally identify with the fabricated version of ourselves known as the ego. By design, this mask totally conceals our true, Higher Self. Although we may get caught up in the dramas of self-centered existence and even totally identify with them, we eventually come to a place on our spiritual journey where we are motivated to recognize and communicate with our … [Read more...]

The Risk Of Blooming

The Risk Of Blooming By Marianne Simon Last week I had four beautiful actresses sitting in my living room, reading excerpts from a performance piece I am developing, ‘Skins I have Worn.’ Six months ago I could not have imagined that as a reality. Anais Nin once wrote, “And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” I love this quote, because it so perfectly expresses the … [Read more...]

Beast Of Change

volcano

There is an earthquake happening.  Tectonic plates are shifting and the Old Ones want to keep it all intact, all in place.  The lava of change is flowing; the universe has heard the call and it is moving forward.  And it is a wave, a giant wave of upheaval and light: a black becoming white, or yellow, or purple. And in the great discomfort is the change.  There are molecules forming and reforming in new patterns, new habits.    And in the … [Read more...]

Water Retains The Memories

They say that water retains the memories. Ah, so what do mine remember? They remember a belly large like a whale’s and a dark line that ran down from rib to pubic bones. They remember the sensation of a babe shifting inside. They remember as the waters inside discovered the waters outside, and how they reached for each other in recognition, my little one turning somersaults in delight. They remember the fear I felt when I stepped into … [Read more...]
