Just Breathe

JUST BREATHE, JUST BE, AND THEREIN YOU’LL FIND THE KEY. 

Isn’t this the truth plan and simple? Realistically not easy in any way. There’s always such a process to everything in life. Knowledge is nice, awareness opens the door and then there’s the messy and uncomfortable journey through experience to get to the other side of realization. What am I talking about, you ask? Well, I’m not even sure really.. just sort of free writing at the moment as my intuition is guiding me back into writing. Where it will lead I have no idea. Unedited, messy, free flow, with run on sentences galore!!

There’s so many rules in life and business.. rules that lead to getting something or pleasing someone and you just can’t do that and be happy.  So here’s the deal. Fear… that lovely yet cringe worthy word that we all have, know and experience at some point or for many of us at all points of life. And yet it comes out in different ways for each of us. I’ve taken countless people of all walks of life into the open ocean to face their fears of the sea and what’s in it. For me, I’m more comfortable in the ocean than on land so I don’t relate to their fears in that sense.. but I do understand and know what fear is like. For me land sharks (humans) are to be more feared that real sharks in the sea. Let’s face it people can be selfish and mean no matter where you turn. Yet, if you look carefully (sometimes it takes effort) and keep putting good out, you will find the good because the Universe and all of us are inherently good. But I digress.. the ultimate of all fears are those voices in our heads that come out in fear of what people think, need for status, attention, security all stemming from a zillion catrillion old ideas that become this system of how we base our lives. No wonder so many people are unhappy and stuck in routine robotic lives where their souls are suffering dreaming of dreams that seemingly died long ago.. .

I Walk The Line

IMG_0468

HelloOooo Beautiful Mermaidens!

It’s been ages since I’ve written or posted here. For a variety of reasons I had to step away & breathe a bit to gain a new perspective. It’s been on my heart to write again and this quote seems to be the perfect addition to sharing more of why I stepped away..

To me, walking the line has involved doing what’s right, most importantly following my intuition & inner guidance. Unfortunately that never quite looks the way I think it should or would like it to. Perhaps you can relate?

Three years ago, I left Hawaii, my dolphins, my dream life as I knew it to rebrand and grow the company in a new direction. The swims and retreats had been fulfilling as a magical alchemical vessel for women’s transformation into their dream life and spiritual awakenings to take place. I’d witnessed it in myself & countless clientele. Although women would come to me seeking change and growth, I was still feeling challenged in getting the deeper message of what I offered out into the world & to be seen for more than just a ‘mermaid swim’.  I started helping women through consulting/coaching sessions where I became a mirror support for them to awaken their inner knowing by pursuing their heart’s dreams & desires.

It’s funny how life happens with all it’s twists, turns & segues. Over the last 8 years I poured my heart & soul into this company every step of the way into how it has evolved through the years. I had a zillion ideas of where I wanted & planned to go next.  Now, at this point I can honestly say I have no idea what will actually happen.

Earth Day Everyday! ooOoOoooo

Happy Earth Day, or as we mermaids like to call it – Planet Ocean Day!

Wouldn’t it be great if we all lived in harmony with our beautiful planet everyday? It’s an ideal worth growing towards and certainly the dolphins and whales can be our greatest teachers in restoring value within ourselves and outwards towards others.

Remember that when you are happy and free, the world benefits!

Something I still see so much in the world is people who are set in robot autopilot, just going through the motions to get through each day. In life there can be settling and there can also be trials that must be gone through to get to the other side of where you want to go. The only way to really know where you are is to ask yourself.

“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.” – Steve Jobs

“The biggest human temptation is to settle for too little.” – Thomas Merton

Some great questions to ask yourself are:

What do you love?

What brings you the greatest joy?

What sets your heart afire?

When do you find yourself feeling free or where time stands still?

What do you believe in?

What are you passionate about changing in the world?

“Every day, people settle for less than they deserve. They are only partially living or at best living a partial life. Every human being has the potential for greatness.” Bo Bennett

One of my greatest passions is creating space for women to reawaken the inspiration that is often blocked as a result of ‘always-on’ living.  This is the core of all our packages, whether retreats,events or consulting. Here at Dana Mermaid we believe in changing the world by reconnecting women to their genius through the calling of the ocean.

Have a fintastical weekend and I hope you do something each day that makes your heart sing with happiness!

Spring Has Sprung!

IMG_7115

Spring has sprung & it’s officially the season of blooming. What new dreams or visions will you be leaping into to make real in your everyday life?

The ocean is our best teacher when it comes to change and going with the flow, as no two moments are ever the same. This is true within our own lives on land as well. The challenge is that with land, change is much harder to notice in the moments that pass us by.

Like flowers blooming, we must continually grow into the new ideals our hearts have in store. A never ending job this out with the old and in with the gold!*  As the seasons change, so must we!

What new is waiting for YOU? There is so much good in the flow of life and it’s essential to tap into willingness to shed the old versions of ourselves as we continuously grow into the infinite good awaiting us!

Awaken the beautiful pearl within – that source where you are perfect and radiant with all the joy and bliss you need! Like a treasure hunt it must be uncovered to illuminate as you grow.

The mermaid is symbolic to every woman embracing a full life; fun feminine & free empowered by the sea as a vessel to transformation.

“Someone told me there’s a girl out there with love in her eyes and flowers in her hair.” – Led Zeppelin

This Spring I want to offer you a place to dive in and be supported to create a life that makes your heart sing!

“In less than an hour, I came out with new focus for my business, something I have been trying to put my finger on for months and just haven’t been able to pull together until now.” Jennifer Nassi, www.jennifernassi.com
