Happy November Conscious Co-Creators
Wow, was October insane or what? Or was that just me. haha. um, yeah, wow is right. I have declared October as the month for Good Byes! I was so deep in process and releasing some ghosts that I could not come above water to do a New Moon reading here - which I REALLY love love love to do ... Anyhoo - moving along...
Since the inception of The Conscious Goddess Festival in 2014, every Tuesday, I have been posting an opportunity for women, and men and well, for anyone and everyone with a conscious loving heart, to share THEIR offerings, in our private Facebook group.
I have seen this post light up in the past but lately, it hasn’t been making it into your Facebook feeds I guess. I think this is a Facebook algorithm and it’s a little sad.
SO! It’s time to change that.
Our festival is all about sharing gifts with each other (and wow, I saw this in every which way possible at the festival in June) and I felt called to keep this going through a weekly facebook post we could all share on. I did this in a focused way so that people wouldn’t come in to the group a start advertising their products whenever they had something come up but not give anything back to the group - which would turn into another one of those groups- which I never really see any support on.
I’d love for us to work to-gather on this.
First: If you have a service, product, event or blog, website, fb group, poem, reading, insights ... ANYTHING that you feel called to share - this is where to do it! Simply post your offerings - something that could really support someone today, this week, this year, forever... in the comments of this post. Be sure to add details such as city and date and also include a link. As much information in the post as possible is better.
Second: comment on each other’s post- give kudos, likes and support, if you like what you see / read. That’s the magical part. Stepping into our power to share feels good, being seen feels good and sharing some love forward feels even awesomer! That is going to be our prerequisite for posting- that you make a comment for at least one other person sharing their heart here.
I’d love to see you in there- let’s make magic today and support each other in sharing all of our gifts. It’s not always easy to share our hearts but it’s time! Here is that post.

I heard a comedian whom I love, say something that got me thinking... She said "We are the generation of selfies and it's all about us." (in the western world)...
Now, I think I know where she was going with that - in that there is a lot of entitlement showing up, a lot of 'look at what I have (and what you don't have)', 'look at how happy I am' (who posts a selfie when they are upset or angry?) and well, you get the picture. She then went on to say how we glorify and cheer on people who are showing their struggles but if we show our successes (like a fit and healthy body) then we are now show offs and bragging.
So how does one freakin' navigate "self" in all of this? I can't even imagine just how confusing this is to young women, and men who are already battling out-of-control hormones and emotions... or women who are stepping into their power and encountering backlash.
So that is why I wanted to write a blog (and do a broadcast) on Self-Love!
♥ What Self-Love IS NOT
Now maybe not everyone agrees with me, that is ok... but after working closely with people and their biggest secrets (including myself) - this is what I can say it is not:
♥ Well then, what is Self-love?
I went to some of my favourite facebook groups and to some close friends and asked them to give me their top 3 Self-Love tips and this is what they so willingly shared with me - true brilliance here >>>

2. Invest in a delicious and indulgent tea that makes you happy every time
3. Talk to your Inner Little Girl every day

Happy Autumn Equinox!
Here is my reading for this exciting time of year (here in Canada) when the leaves turn bright orange, pumpkin and squash soup warms our bellies and new routines are ignited.
As we come out of the full moon eclipse in retrograde, some people may feel a need to begin new projects, travel, talk with their friends and neighbours and cut the chords on anything that may still be weighing them down.
I felt called to do a reading for today PLUS readings on: leading up to the 2nd New Moon for September, the month and the year as well as sharing some other intuitive sacred bits and nibbles ... all messages coming from today's Sun in Libra.
Today the word that showed up through my *"Be The Change" cards is: COMMUNICATION, which is truly perfect for today: "True awareness appears when I share myself honestly and openly and listen with loving kindness". It may be time to end a relationship that is no longer serving your highest good and could be the best thing for both of you. ALSO, tuning into self talk is huge. Listen to what you tell yourself and others and ask "would I speak to a child this way" "what I am projecting into my reality, with my words?" - you may be shocked to find that you aren't being too kind to yourself. "Break free from self imposed suffering" - is the message I received today loud and clear.
One way you can do this is by practising the Hawaiian Mantra / Prayer called Ho’oponopono which consists of repetitions of the following phrases:
I Love You
