The Crucible of Change

The Crucible of Change

My Dear Sister, I’m coming to you from the crucible of change. This last month has been a rigorous but exquisitely orchestrated journey through my mother’s final days, the celebration of her life and the new frontier of life with her absence. More recently, it’s felt quite a bit like I’m tumbling through space without any moorings – unsure where I’ll land or who I’ll be when I get there. There’s no doubt this new unfolding will ultimately flower and bear fruit but for now I’m keeping things very simple. Impeccable self-care has been the order of the day. I listen closely to what my body, heart and Spirit need. Rest, healthy food, time outside and contact with friends are staples. I’ve cut out nonessentials and cut back on mindless time on social media. Its clear I’m in the midst of a total reworking of my relationships, roles and karmic threads with both parents; assisting the healing of my mother’s ancestral line; and going through a complete and utter transformation of Self. Having a regular practice of self care, reaching out for support and opening to the Sacred within and all around me has created a sense of ease and Grace through this very intense and sometimes challenging passage. It tenderized my heart and opened me to a larger stream of love. My family and I have been loved and supported in gorgeous and amazing ways throughout this journey. I am deeply grateful for all we have received and my ability to let it in wholeheartedly. I’ve been living what’s possible when we root deeply in our Sacred nature...

Video: What’s Your Next Right Step?

Hi There Love,   Do you ever find yourself pushing to make something happen only to get exhausted or caught up in a struggle?   Or do you get lost in indecision, stagnation or feeling stuck?   Opening to our Sacred Feminine flow is a subtle dance between resting (yes, it’s true!), deep listening, allowing energies to coalesce and build, taking inspired action and opening to receive. It’s a balanced blend of the Divine Feminine and Masculine working in concert to create our lives. Most of us have skills and ease with some and need to strengthen or cultivate the others.   I have a recent experience I’d like to share with you that illuminates the power of inspired action whose time has come.   So what is your next right step? Do you feel clear, confident and willing? When you trust your inner nudges and take those – big, small or baby – next right steps it creates a cascade affect that opens you to the fullness of your power and your flow. Sending you much love and blessings as you consider your next right step. Joni   PS. If your next right step is getting 1:1 support to shift some facet of your life, relationship, money or work in the world I am here to support you. Contact me here for a 30 minute clarity session.

If you’re on the east coast please note my upcoming offerings: Sacred Money Archetypes Half Day Intensive Monday October 3rd 9:30am – 12:30 pm Sanctuary Day Friday October 28th 9:30am – 4:00pm...
Sanctuary in the Storm

Sanctuary in the Storm

Hello My Dear, Are you having a full summer? Is life being kind to you? I’m at the start of two weeks away. A much needed trip to my favorite beach.   To be honest my summer has been plagued with uncertainty and Olympic levels of stress. One by one the pillars of my personal life have been shaken as I’ve watched each of those I hold most dear face terminal health issues or personal crises.   I’ve stood by and loved, listened, cared for, supported and came to recognize each of their fates was ultimately beyond my control. The ending of each of their stories was out of my hands. At times that feeling of powerlessness and uncertainty has felt brutal.   And other times absolutely absurd – just laughable – in it’s relentlessness and outrageousness. Like the day I was preparing to visit my mother with terminal cancer and father with dimenitia only to end up in the ER waiting to see if my husband’s chest pains were from indigestion or a heart attack. (Thankfully the former.) But that wasn’t clear until we sat in the unknown for a few hours waiting for test results.   At that point I was ready to pen a cease and desist letter to Universe. Like enough already!   At one time or another we all face seasons of stress, challenge or upheaval when it can feel like all we can do is show up and keep going as Life plays dodge ball with you.At those times it can be tempting to hunker down, engage our defenses and thicken our skin...

A video for you: Can you see the value and beauty within your own nature?

My Dear Sister, We each come to recognize the value and beauty of our Feminine nature in our own unique way. It’s my honor and delight to share my story with you through a recent conversation with my friend and colleague, Reba Linker. Reba, is perhaps like you, on her own journey of discovering the Divine Feminine. During our talk she had a powerful revelation about gravity that is sure to expand the way you look at the Feminine. It did for me. Even though we touched on a number of facets we were just getting started. It’s a conversation I would love to continue and I hope you’ll join me. As you watch, receive our Truth and notice what it stirs and awakens within you. We each transmit and birth a unique facet of the Sacred Feminine that touches all we reach. You can watch that process in real time as both Reba and I have new revelations. It’s really quite beautiful. I would love to hear what a-ha or Divine Feminine pearl our conversation awoke in you, please share below. ...
At the end of the day, what really matters to you?

At the end of the day, what really matters to you?

My daughter and I are spending the week out of state with my aging parents.  It was an unplanned trip spurred by a sobering diagnosis my mother just received. I’m here arranging care and ongoing supports and being reminded of what really matters. I’m watching my mother grow more accepting of support. And quickly getting clearer and clearer of what she wants for her remaining time, which isn’t always popular with her loved ones. I feel waves of grief and sadness wash over me and I deeply appreciate this opportunity for my daughter to have candid conversations with her grandmother about life and living the final chapters on her own terms. We are having loving and tender moments as we enjoy the simple pleasure of Being together. At times I feel a flow of joy that shifts to sorrow and then back again. Watching my mother has highlighted the importance of knowing and honoring yourself so you don’t waste one day living someone else’s version of your life.    I have two events coming up later this month to support you in remembering and honoring what really matters to you and connecting with that wise Feminine Essence within you.   I am offering a Free 1 Hour Virtual Class: Open to Your Sacred Feminine Flow on Monday July 18th at 6:30 pm EST. Join me to relax and begin creating emotional and financial peace of mind.  Access your unique Feminine essence that guides you in claiming and nourishing what really matters to you.   To register click HERE On Friday July 29th, I will be joined here in Richmond by Molly Sharp,...
