I am on a mermaid mission to change the world one splash at a time! When you tap back into your value as the sea star you are, you awaken to a world of abundance that’s been waiting for you claim, or “the world is your oyster!” As an artist, dreamer, and creator, envisioning the magic comes natural. Structure, focus and discipline are what I’ve had to embrace to continue learning. Without a balance of both masculine and feminine, or land and sea we will not be able to create the big impact that’s needed. We must have balance.
By healing the separation from land to sea and mind to heart, we have that innate balance in life when we can truly share our unique talents with the world and also be supported with success. The key to a balanced life is essentially breath. The word “Ha” in Hawaiian, means breath. Hawaiians traditionally greet each other nose to nose, honoring the breath of life or “mana” (power, life force) within.
Breath is an essential part of free diving, and I believe ultimately in life. When you focus on breath, relaxation sets in and eventually the clear answers will surface for your next indicated steps. The dolphins are conscious breathers and again have so much to teach us about how to live. They reflect back to us who we authentically are and lead us to find that much like the sea, when you dive in, all the answers are inside. So it’s time to make a splash, dive in and discover the beautiful pearl within!
The ocean teaches us to go with the flow. Release attachments to what once was or is and be open to new amazingness. Allow the waves of life to wash away what no longer serves you at any level in your life and be open to newness. When you are open to change in small or large ways, then your career will take on a life of it’s own.
“Follow your bliss and the Universe will open doors for you where there were only walls.” – Joseph Campbell
One thing I love about the sea is that it’s ever changing. When I worked on boats in particular, people were always asking if I ever grew tired of my job. Absolutely not! The ocean is a magical world where every day is an new adventure. When we surrender to the flow of life then the magic can flow through us. There is a distinct pattern to the ocean and all sea life, yet it is ever changing and no two days are ever the same.
Allow openness, expansion, and change to flow into your life and career. Enjoy the ride!
“We experience who we really are, and what it is we’re meant to do, in any moment when we pour our love into the universe.” – Marianne Williamson
If you find yourself losing energy to fulfill your mission, spread across the board in overwhelm then consider how you’ve disconnected. When we are too much in our heads, we lose the balance in life. Just as when we are too much on land and forget about the ocean, which sustains life on land. There’s no words to describe the empowerment of reconnecting the the sea, our ultimate life source, which taps us back into our own hearts and intuitive knowing that guides our true path and purpose.
Definition of Class Act: Someone who shows impressive and stylish excellence.
Once you decide to no longer allow disrespect into your life, you can serve the world with love and the Universe will provide exactly what you need in a higher quality of life. Become that class act and share your gifts with the world!
“A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.” – Coco Chanel
To me, quality is everything. Those with style, grace, classiness, and love I believe will truly conquer the world. Selfishness and facades abound in today’s consumerism society and realness is a quality that is sorely lacking. How much time do you spend in really listening to others and adding to the quality of life rather than zipping on through?
Dance is one of the best ways to express your heart and soul, and have fun ~ besides swimming with dolphins of course! Being an entrepreneur is also a dance. The key is to live from our hearts and let our logical mind take a back seat. In dance, it’s passion that fuels the performance. You can be a great dancer, but without passion you’ll never really create that shazaam impact.
The same can be said in life and your career. When you’re first learning to dance, you have to think about the steps and rhythm, feeling somewhat robotic maybe even making mistakes. Then somehow you tap into the rhythm and the dance dances you. This is the magic space, where you really stand out and shine. In surfing it’s known as the sweet spot, when you come one with your board and glide the slide of the wave.
I’ve found that all the answers are within, and trusting the intuition is incredibly empowering! One of the best ways I’ve found to free myself, get out of my head and open the channels to my authentic Self and intuition is by swimming in the ocean with dolphins and truly stepping into being a Mermaid Goddess. There are no words to describe how freeing this is. It truly must be experienced.
“Never interrupt someone doing something you said couldn’t be done.” – Amelia Earhart
Have you ever been charmed before? I mean really bedazzled, by sweet talking glamorousness? I know I have. Whether men, women, employers, or employees, it can at times be so easy to be charmed by someone’s presence. Most often though once charmed, the appeal doesn’t last. Finding those people and experiences whose sincerity are rooted deep, truly are diamonds in the rough. Image is a lot in today’s society, however it’s the follow through that adds fuel to the fire.
Here are three keys I’ve found that are imperative to success and happiness:
The definition of ambassador is a person who acts as a representative or promoter of a specified activity. So who or what are you an ambassador for? What do you believe so passionately in that you are representing to the world? Whether it’s the ocean, land, people, a product or service, it may even come down to representing the spirit of Aloha. It really is the little things in life that mean everything! There’s nothing like the kindness of a stranger, a smile or laugh to brighten your day. When someone, anyone throughout your day shows true sincerity in caring for you, excellent customer service that gives you that feeling of being supported and well looked after or simply, love. Your spirit and attitude truly makes a difference in all whose lives connect with you. I hope that someday the Aloha spirit will weave into the hearts and minds of people everywhere and awaken the world to our true purpose in life!
So what are YOU waiting for? Dive in to discover your greatness and the amazing abundance life holds for you. the sea truly will set you free!
In life, I’ve found that there is always something we can learn in any situation. The key is to be honest, open minded, and willing to see it! There are two sides to every coin and as Napoleon Hill states, “Every adversity carries within it the seed of an equivalent or greater benefit.”
Being willing to face and let go of what no longer serves us or change and grow to the next level, doesn’t mean we have to like it, but it does mean we’ve made the decision to see something in a NEW way. This always takes courage. In my own experience, it’s so much easier to focus on the negative aspects. The positive aspects take work! Take a look for yourself and see how keen you are to be centered on positivity, success, and happiness all the time? Ask yourself how much time you spend seeing the good in life, others, and especially within yourself?
Complaining, worry, and fear can somehow become comfortable and seem to be the “norm” in the world. To “want” to be successful, and taking the road to your happy destiny, now that takes true courage and perseverance.
“Do not follow where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
I believe one of the keys to life is balance. In order for balance to happen you must be willing, honest with yourself, and open minded to possibilities. We also need to listen to our hearts, trusting ourselves at all times! Our needs must be met in order to provide the world with all our amazingness and this involves faith and service.
“All the adversity I’ve had in my life, all my troubles and obstacles, have strengthened me… you may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth meat be the best thing in the world for you.” – Walt Disney
BE OF SERVICE AND BE FREE!
This is not care taking, this is a deeper soul giving, really living your authentic sSelf as a service to the world. Be honest, real, and take time to truly listen and care.
In this New Year of 2013, bust open and break free from anything that limits you from fully expressing your gifts in this world! People need you, God needs you and your heart needs YOU! There is no one else like you!
Tis the season to be mer magical and merry! Time to let your light shine bright! As this year wraps up, it’s an opportunity to reflect, celebrate, and share love with family, friends and all whose lives we touch! The New Year brings abundance and possibility for change, growth, and magic in renewing our heart’s declarations!
“All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.” – Walt Disney
This month I want to talk about courage. Recently I had the blessing and privilege to share some magic of the sea with a dear friend of mine who is normally petrified of anything in the ocean! She braved her fears, flew to Hawaii, donned a mask and snorkel for the first time ever and allowed me to guide her into the sea to swim with wild dolphins. She even braved a mermaid ocean swim in a tail without a mask! She was astonished how something that was once so terrifying had become the most amazing thing she’d experienced in her entire life!
There is something so magical and empowering when we walk or swim through our fears and reconnect to the sea which is our ultimate life source.
“Courage is not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.” – Nelson Mandela
