Journal with Purpose

I’ve been writing journals since I was about 9. That’s quite a few hundred journals in my lifetime. I have to. To put words on paper, get things out, get to the root, and finally when an aha occurs I want to remember it.

This week, 3 different stories came to me. 1st was an interview with Ne -Yo, songwriter and producer. He had a lot of pent up aggravation as a kid after his father left, and his mom gave him pen and paper and said write it down.  The journals he began to write became the seed ground for his songs.

Here, part of a post from Humans in New York, “I was the youngest person in prison, so I withdrew into myself, and I started writing in a journal every single day. That journal became my world. I used it to figure things out, and one of the first things I realized was that I’d stopped being me. It wasn’t so much the crime that had landed me in prison. It was that I had decided to stop being me.”  Part of a powerful thread of stories from a neighborhood in Brooklyn that’s a hard place to get ahead. You may be following the miraculous story that is unfolding there starting with a young man, Vidal. It’s the greatest human story of the moment being broadcast.

I spoke to a friend the other day, we hadn’t talked in so many years. As we shared where we’ve been, we met in the NYC when she came to see my apartment as I was looking for a housemate at the time, she’s now out west and I’m in Asheville, we both referenced looking back at our journals and seeing how we had referenced things that we had forgotten and how some were playing out. I read something from 2004. These were entries I wrote while doing a play in Woodstock. I was so happy and wrote about how free and creative I felt. How someone had seen the play and wanted me for other plays and that he’d help me get my equity card. I had forgotten about that. And THEN amidst the journaling, I wrote go to Mt Mitchell, in Asheville NC, highest point east of the Mississippi. Planted the seed. I did visit Mt Mitchell last year. I went because a friend recommended it. I had no idea that I had it on my bucket list.

We are always creating. Always. Every thought, every word, every sensation. We are receiving and sending signals constantly. To have a place to write in that stream of consciousness way, with structure and support strengthens us at our core. It’s powerful.

Co-create consciously. The Power Journal.

2015.. an 8 year!

by Administrator on January 1, 2015

The powerful 8 year is here, and January 1st is a one day. How cool. It’s actually a 10 day, the Wheel of Fortune. What auspicious numbers to start the year. Be prepared for opportunity. Center and get ready set go!

An 8 year will have us in a balancing act collectively. There will be a lot that will come together, and it will likely be fast and fierce. As a group, if we can come together and make adjustments in the moment when things occur before things get lost and we get distracted, we will swiftly move forward. A good thing to remember is to communicate directly and with lightning speed. Don’t get mired in minutiae, and keep things balanced. Act boldly and powerfully. Remember Ben Franklin, who warned about the danger of procrastinating. He’s a great example for this year. Check out his advice.

The last week of the year

December 30, 2014

Take some time before the new year even starts to take stock and reflect on the past year. Take a breath and exhale last year. Instead of a resolution, re-solve what is incomplete. Shining awareness here will open new possibilities. This is a sober approach to the New Year before the champagne, so you don’t […]

The Last Boomers 1961-1964

December 21, 2014

The last of the baby boomers turn 50 this month. I have always been fascinated by the generation I was born into, and never knew what it was called, if indeed it was part of the boomers. I am inspired to write about us after reading an article by P.J. O’Rourke. He finds us a […]

Power Conversation featured in Newsletter

September 19, 2014

This is like a confessional. I was considering wealth, and what that feels like inside. I saw a fear of abusing power. As I kept looking, I saw the trappings of winning and losing, of competition and sabotage, I heard a voice, that quote, “with great power comes great responsibility”. Those weren’t my words, but perhaps that’s where the fear was. […]

Peruvian Florida water: Simply the best. Much more pure than what is sold at the bodegas here. Thanks to a visiting shaman, I discovered it and bought it through shamansmarket.com I diluted it in a spray bottle with water, and sprayed an entire carpet with it. The cats now smell like it. Bonus! Hydrogen Peroxide- […]
