WHAT’S NEW? Have you hurt or offended anyone this year?
I want to wish all my Jewish friends an easy Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) fast today. For those of you not familiar, Yom Kippur is a day of fasting that occurs 10 days after the Jewish New Year of Rosh Hashanah. These are the days we repent for any hurtful words or actions we have taken in the previous year, a time to forgive and let go, and to ask for the forgiveness of others.
Although I’m not what I’d call religious by any means – I do enjoy reflecting on who I might of offended in the past year, and how I could make reparations (if I haven’t already). The real kicker here is that it isn’t just about asking for forgiveness, but making a commitment to never behave that way again!
So given that little qualification – consider how often you say you’re sorry for treating your friends, loved ones, co-workers or even total strangers unkindly – but still feel that you were entitled to be that way given the circumstances in the moment. But according to Judaism – it’s important not only to apologize, but to promise to never treat anyone one badly again. It’s about making kindness a non-negotiable life value – to treat both ourselves and others with the highest respect regardless of how right we think we are. (Otherwise, why bother to ask forgiveness for something you are going to do again?!)
No matter what the spiritual tradition, we can learn something from it – so I’m curious what you think about this (please post below). And if I’ve offended or hurt you in any way this past year – please forgive me. 🙂

Exploring the Divine Feminine…
Living a passionate and purposeful life brings an inner confidence and self-love that is deeply felt when doing exactly what you desire. See, our needs can be met and filled daily, but our dreams and desires, are the ones that escape most people’s lives and continue to be just a dream.
Long ago, I realized that our Earth is a playground and one that I can explore, at my own choosing, so I did. For twenty-eight years I have been traveling to sacred sites and learning about our ancient cosmology, origins and expanding my spiritual self into possibilities that exists when in sacred trust and communion with the Divine, you’re most precious self.
Your Divine self is the original seeding of perfected self, she lives within and I believe it is our job and purpose to extract who she is from the inside out to bring awareness to our human being: freedom, self-love and integrity. Integrity to your truth, freedom to be and experience your potential and a love that is rejuvenating, deeply healing and truthful to our feelings and needs, as we all have them.
Traveling brings these three key points Divine life into order, to be felt, experienced and explored. Bali to me is one of the most feminine Divine spiritual landscapes we have on our planet. She opens up a space within you to be nurtured by her environment, dancing and singing is part of the culture as is sacred spiritual practice that unveils inner healing potential, we all have it, most don’t discover it others explore it and pursue it daily.
It is such a gift to be surrounded by a group of like-minded, open-hearted women who embark on a powerful intention, to be spiritually empowered and to live life fully with no limitations to what is possible. Our Bali retreat in April is built upon this model of diving into your most precious and expressive self. She is yearning to be explored, cared for and revealed, we all feel the calling to love more, exploring our spiritually empowered self deepens this inner knowing, the wise one that lives and breathes through sacred wisdom and ceremony.
I invite you to join me as we uncover your sweet spot, your powerful place of voice, movement and purpose. We will bring all of these together during our summit on the weekend, into a business platform and open up all of your possibilities to live passionately and on purpose doing your great work, exactly why you came here at this time, to share your inner wisdom.
I am honored to be your guide during our Spiritually Empowered Female Entrepreneur Summit; it will change your life, guaranteed!
