Malibu Hikers!

“What do these women wish to achieve by hiking up these hills in Malibu?”

Imagine a very proper Brittish accent with a sort of chronic, cynical way of being in life asking this question, I was telling her about the out of town visitors I’ve been leading on private hikes in Malibu.

Her words and the tone of her words made me laugh very hard!

I quickly produced an answer for her:

When you’re out in nature hiking up a hill, things get quiet.  When it’s quiet, you feel peace and more clarity than you do when you’re sitting in a house with the television and the wi fi and the phone ringing.  Not only does that technology create too much chatter, but all of those interference fields create a bit of chaos in your thinking. wififorrestconnection

The women travel here on business and want to carve out time for themselves, time to recharge and rejuvenate.  In my humble opinion, there is no better place to do that than out on the hiking trail in Malibu!

She quietly accepted that answer.

Now I say to you–any chance you get to be out in nature or out on the hiking trail, TAKE IT!  Nature is the great equalizer.IMG_0508

One of my clients was antsy to get to the climbing part of our hike.  She said that when she is challenged by a hill, epiphanies jump into her mind and she gets answers!

It’s true.  Simple and True.  Try it.

If you don’t have the confidence to follow the trail alone, please let me be your private hiking guide in Malibu.  My goal is to keep you moving in the right direction and to make sure you get the connection to nature that you and everybody deserves!

Their View Mirror

6 Comments


I have noticed something that I just keep getting clearer and clearer about it.  Every time I get down or go into a depression, it is almost always because I am viewing my life from someone else’s view of me.

To say it another way, I love my little life.  I live in a funky environment that is rare and doesn’t necessarily FIT into what society views as normal.  I absolutely devour my nights at home and LOVE my living situation.

Yet, there are times that I find myself depressed.  Lately I’ve been able to pinpoint why–it’s because I’m viewing my life from THEIR view of me.TARAreflecting

People say things to me that are so inappropriate and with such pity aimed at me.   Please don’t pity me just because I’m not living the life that you would live!  I am me and you are you–please consider that when you judge!

When I view my life from within, I am blissful and happy.

When I look through THEIR eyes, I become that poor pitiful person they see me as.

Really, I ask you, why does it have to look a certain way?  Why do our lives have to conform to everybody else’s way of living or society’s view of what a successful existence is?  It doesn’t, and the clearer I get about this, the more I thrive in my own reality.

“The older you get, the more you understand how your conscience works.  The biggest and only critic lives in your perception of people’s perception of you rather than people’s perception of you.”
― Criss Jami

Brilliant!

So, when it all comes down to it, I AM in charge of my thoughts and feelings.  When I feel what people are perceiving my life to be, I don’t have to allow those perceptions to permeate my being.

Our lives are our own and when we embrace them with a sense of wholeness, we thrive.

As Emerson said, “Envy is ignorance and imitation is suicide.”  God I love that.

So, this I say to myself and to you if you care to receive it:   our lives are our own and we get to decide what we value and what feels good–nobody else.  I suppose it is easier said than done but with some introspection and breath work within, we can come to the place where it really is okay REGARDLESS of what THEY think!BrightLightLantern

Envy in Malibu

Leave a comment


I have the privilege and honor of caring for people’s homes and animals while they are away.  One of the questions people always ask me is:

“Do you ever become jealous or envious when  caring for other people’s homes?Do you go into the comparison mode and wish you had more of this wealth and abundance.”

Am I envious? Absolutely not! Sure, there are times my mind wanders into that lower energy place of lack and feelings of unworthiness, but my work is to guide it back to the light.

Right now I feel like I’m on the set of  “Under The Tuscan Sun.”  I feel so fortunate to be in this space.  I admire the beauty of it all and I enjoy the responsibility while I’m here but I also enjoy the freedom of my regular life when I’m at home.JacksonsCastle

This will sound bazaar to most, but I never really wanted the responsibility of owning my own home.  I wanted to feel free to go anywhere in the world without being tied down by the physical responsibility of a house.  What can I say, I was young and that’s how I felt.  Now, that’s exactly where I’m at in my life today.

I live in an “out of the ordinary” environment and one of my living spaces resembles a log cabin.  Interestingly, a log cabin is also what I once dreamed of living in.IMG_0244

 Today, though, I’m here in Malibu– enjoying this blissful space and reaping the rewards within right now.  The rewards really are within! And the rewards really are right now!

 

The question really isn’t “what can I get”, the question is “what can I let”–what can I let into my soul that will bring me joy and peace and beauty and ease.  I don’t have to GET anything to feel those feelings.

Feelings transport me into  a high-flying place where bliss is all I see and hear and feel.  Beautiful chimes mixed in with the sound of real raw wind whipping through the palm trees and a fountain dripping below.  I sit and watch and feel the beauty within and there is something so simple about that. All power is in the present moment and I am anchored in the here and now.Blessings

When all is said and done, I remember my favorite quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson: “Envy is ignorance and imitation is suicide.”

Learning A New Body Language

Leave a comment


If your body could learn a new language that could supersede everything you’ve ever believed about health and all the limits we set up around it, would you want to know about it?

What if you had an energetic intelligence within you that would allow you to transcend all of your physical ailments?  Would you be interested in learning it?

What if I told you that your body already knows it, you just need to tap into it to re-learn it.IMG_0508

Greg Jeter is a licensed NSA practitioner.  Trained first as a Chiropractor, then seeing the magic in this work that can be best described as “energy work”, focuses his entire practice on energy, with an occasional physical adjustment.

Greg is a facilitator, a bridge if you will, to help your body tap into the field of self healing.  “It’s all about finding the tension and the open areas and merging them into an energy that moves and flows into a feeling of ease and perfect health that is connected to all that is.”gregAglow

Dr Oz said on a recent Oprah episode, “As we get better at understanding how little we know about the body, we begin to realize that the next big frontier is energy medicine.”

WE ARE ENERGY!

If that sounds  “other wordly”– I can assure you,  that’s how it feels to receive it.

When I received my first session, I  didn’t want it to end.  I felt a rhythm and a vibration moving through me that is ultimately indescribable.

Some of the comments by long time practice members who receive regular work could make you a bit curious about the seeming magic of this work:

“Loving myself absolutely as I have never loved myself before–felt the omnipotence that babies feel”

“Felt like I had a heart orgasm–had the experience of what it must feel like to be a fish swimming in water”

“absolute joy”

“felt my spine had perfect posture”

“felt as if I was holding the love of the world & the suffering of the world all at the same time”

“felt the VOID of awareness–words really can’t describe what happens but it is like a deep meditative place that connects me to a world that is beyond the material, conscious realm”

You may feel results from the very first session but you will want to continue to regular sessions, since the tension is fuel for transformation.  Once your body learns this language, it will want to speak it and experience it at regular intervals!

Enjoy the process–YOU ARE WORTHY!

I Am A Mystic

4 Comments


I am a mystic.  I never fully understood the meaning of the word until recently.  It always rang in my mind as something of magic–maybe even a little dark in its meaning.

I heard the Sufi teacher, Llewellyn Vaughn Lee,  define a mystic as: someone who wants to completely lose themselves in God until there is only that divine consciousness, being, oneness–no separation.  

I like that.

Or, the definition that suits me precisely at this time in my life is:  a person who perceives and comprehends divine mysteries.IMG_1167

Most people have a different idea of what a “mystic” is.  I know I did.  Simply hearing these definitions made me feel like I belonged to it and that felt great.

I Am A Mystic!

I perceive and comprehend so many mystical experiences  almost on a daily basis.  I yearn for them and when I don’t have one in a day, I remind myself to let go long enough for the next one to happen.

Yesterday,  as I waited at a light, I watched the people crossing the street.  A good-looking guy caught my eye but he had a snarly kind of frown on his face.

I told myself not to judge too quickly–he may be very spiritual and sweet.

Then, I heard Michael Beckwith’s voice in my mind, “see with the eye behind the eye, feel with the heart behind the heart…”

I realized my music wasn’t on the whole time I’d been in the car– I love my Michael Beckwith Transcendance CD (https://naturegirltara.wordpress.com/products-i-highly-recommend/)

As I looked down at my phone, the time said 11:11.  I turned on the power for the CD and the words that came out were, “see with the eye behind the eye, feel with the heart behind the heart.”

That is a mystical experience–magical, perfect timing!aglow at the gazebo

You may say, “that’s just a coincidence, and what’s the big deal.”    Because I am a mystic,  I claim it as a bright,  synchronistic event of today.  Magic and miracles abound!  When we can witness the smallest mysteries, bigger and more amazing mysteries are on the way!  Trust me, I have big stories that unfold synchronistically, but to share them all would be like reading a book!

This happened to me this morning.  I was dreaming, dreaming about my former husband.  I don’t remember any specifics just that his energy was in my dream–it felt very comforting.

All of a sudden, my Bose radio alarm (which I’ve never set and don’t even know how to set) started playing the song, “Lovesong” by The Cure…”I will always love you…however near or far, I will always love you.” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=62Kwhe2Ng0w)

It was the perfect song to put music to how I was feeling.  Feeling that no matter how far apart we are now, I will always love him and I know the feeling is mutual.  There are no nasty, small-minded words between us.

Anyway, the way the dream and the music met was perfect.

That is a mystical experience.

I am a mystic.  I see and feel mysterious and magical manifestations that the Universe is conspiring on my behalf!

It’s fun noticing.

Being Bliss

I had the most blissful day today.  It wasn’t anything I did in particular, it was just one big   bliss filled day!aglow at the gazebo

I think the reason was because I wasn’t really in my head, I was in my body–feeling!

If I were to rattle off all the activites I did during the day, you’d think, “what the heck is she talking about–how can all that be blissful?”  Things like, scrubbing my tub, vacuuming, bathing the dogs, riding my bike, spending time in my office, doing laundry…

These things, in and of themselves, do not produce blissful feelings.  It was who I was being while doing these things.IMG_1167

I wasn’t thinking!

I was feeling.

I think when we let go of all the thoughts that keep us chained to the past or anxious about the future, we can be present.

When you have presence, you have bliss!

Get A Glimpse– No Ego In Sight!

2 Comments


I am a woman and  sometimes when I look in the mirror I notice a little too much of what’s wrong–all the flaws.  Sometimes I see too much fat, too many flaws in my skin, blah blah blah!  Sad, but true.   Most of the time, though,  I am just in a state of BEING and enjoying life and feeling good.  

Every now and then though, I focus in on what’s wrong.  We can all be way too physically focused. When we live in our heads, the ego rules the game.

IMG_0492

The ego is always concerned with holding you down, keeping you stuck and safe. It likes to compare you with others and compare you with yourself when you were better. And, if you’re a young gorgeous thing, if puffs you up and helps you feel superior physically.

Either way, the ego is not a loving force, it is competitive and judgmental.

When we are living in the present moment and really living life, there are no thoughts about our physicality and how it isn’t measuring up anymore. The present moment is simple, feel good bliss. Lately I’ve been getting glimpses of an unconditional love for my physical self. It’s definitely different than what I’m accustomed to when I look in the mirror. The more time I spend with me, the more I’m starting to really be okay with me.

Not just okay, but really loving me!

Then my ego kicks in and chatters, “you’re only letting go of the physical thoughts of yourself because you’re losing them–you’re becoming unattractive and old-looking so why not learn to let it go”.  Thank you for sharing EGO–as Dr. Wayne Dyer says, “Edging God Out”.

That’s truly what the difference feels like to me, when I’m in the present moment bliss I am in God and God is in me.IMG_0508

When I’m in the comparing, critical mode, I am Edging God Out!  

The first step toward spending more time in GOD mode instead of EGO mode is simple– AWARENESS.  As soon as you are aware, you are on your way to having far more freedom than you have ever imagined.

So go ahead and get a Glimpse!  It all starts with a Glimpse!
