Choosing Aliveness in the Dark

“We are destined to be opened by the living of our days, and whether we like it or not, whether we choose to participate or not, we will, in time, every one of us, wear the deeper part of who we are as a new skin…

Either by erosion from without or by shedding from within – and often by both – we are forced to live more authentically. And once the crisis that opened us passes, the real choice then becomes: WILL WE CONTINUE SUCH AUTHENTIC LIVING?

Where is the bottom...really?

How many times in this life, I have thought I reached “the bottom”. At this ripe old age of 57, I am being shown again that “bottoms” are illusory. If I am fully living and risking in life, loving, and leaping to experience the depths of my heart and meaningful purpose, I seem to be blessed with experiencing new “bottoms”.  

For me, “bottoms” have been times when the determination of my will to figure out and power through life’s...

The End of Efforting

Uncategorized Mar 01, 2022

As I allowed myself to simply breathe in and out with my Be Still meditation, I experienced and saw/felt what it must be like at the end of life. Our final breath - the deep, deep sense of relief as all the trying, the searching, the planning, the creating and figuring out --- all of the efforting, comes to a close. It is all released as I imagine that final breath of life.

Perhaps it's this time, as the world begins to maybe, actually, open up again. As a new phase of efforting is being...

Glory of Divine

It’s been over a month since I “launched” myself into my own Accelerated Success program. If I stayed the course week by week, I would be five weeks in. And, I have a whole circle of allies watching me succumb to the inner voice of critic, perfectionist, pleaser and terrified little girl. Mother Superior, Polly Perfect, June Cleaver, and Tightrope Walker.

I’ve identified and gotten more in touch with the power, wisdom and ultimate trust of Eagle of Grace and the...

Discipline and Letting Go

It's a beautiful Sunday morning and I'm walking through the woods and thinking about my characters and my week of Discipline. What I’ve learned, where I’ve struggled, the aha’s I continue to have, and the resources that support me through it all.

Right now, I’m thinking about pickleball coming up and that has me stuck. And I think it is reflective of the stuck-ness that I feel around my vision for accelerated success, my vision for future of peace and ease and flow and...

Accelerated Success - Doing the Work

Doing the Work – Kathy’s Journey of ASP Fall 2021

Logbook: Week One – Vision…and Struggle

So many thoughts about improving and changing what is – rather than simply experiencing what is – as it is – and choosing to step back into the flow of the river. Allowing…allowing…allowing. Enjoying and trusting and remaining curious. Why is this so difficult?

These last couple of days have been a roller coaster of thoughts, moods, and emotions....

Which Wolf Will You Feed Today?

I started my journey of walking the path of Accelerated Success as a student of my own program. Thank you for being willing to witness me. And so it begins. MASSIVE RESISTANCE!

It’s like my feet are stuck in molasses or something super sticky and super strong. It’s unbelievable to me. It is so easy to coach others – to champion others – to believe in others. It’s also easy to access vision through doing the work, doing the activities, meditating and sitting...

Is It Laziness...Or Non Doing?

How do you think about Laziness versus Non-Doing?

What’s the difference anyway? During this Pandemic chapter of life, so many reflections and revelations are emerging. Experiences that I may never have had without the gift of this forced slow down. As an avid “do-er”, Type A, Driver, Achiever, or whatever label you want to use, stopping on a dime has been both excruciating and liberating at the same time. I am reminded of my most excruciating time in life when John died...

Five Power Pillars to Propel You Into 2020

The last day of a calendar year is always a poignant reminder that the clock is ticking on our lives. Funny how we wait for the stroke of midnight 12/31 to choose to step forth into our higher aspirations. Funny, but also fantastic, because we need to use anything and everything to summon our courage to live our most powerful life NOW!

The turning of any meaningful calendar page can be our impetus to action. As I teach and coach people throughout the year, we always begin with vision and...

Serve More - Strive Less: Recovering Your Mojo

Feeling Stuck? Try Striving Less and Serving More

Do you sometimes struggle with keeping your mojo running at top speed? Are you a high achiever who thrives on running circles around “normal” people and their normal productivity? Do you get a thrill out of maximizing every hour of the day? Is accomplishment one of your superpowers?

If you relate to any of the above, you are a member of my tribe and I’m a member of yours. We are competitive to a fault sometimes, raising the...
