The Big Announce :)

Whee! :)
Phew! What a road this has been – an adventure full of twists and turns. Some of them fun…some not so fun – but all of them learning experiences and choice points. Many of you have been with me from the very beginning, almost ten years ago! And others are new, freshly subscribed faces. I am grateful for every single one of you :)

The world is waking up into a new space…a tipping point is about to be reached, for all of us as a group and individually. This is a good thing – a hard thing, in some ways, but still a good thing. It’s time to really see each other, once again, and wake up to what we’re doing as a whole.

I’ve wondered where my place is, in all of this change. The tagline for The Daily Spark shifted from ‘The dose of daily inspiration in your inbox’ to ‘Living on the cusp of change’ a while back…and I’ve had to really own that. Change, authenticity, awake vision.

Love that comes from a stable, self-accepted center built upon a foundation of truth both real and practical…and vision to see shining potentials on the horizon for myself and those I have the pleasure of working with – to be there as a guiding presence for the highest good. This is who and what I most want to embody as I move in this time of transformation – that’s who I want to tip in to.

Taking a long hard look, I realized – I’m not there yet. Me, I just love to play and learn and grow in love and awareness and then share it! :) And that’s what I’ve been doing all this time, with NO clue how to actually run a business, or how to create a structure within which both myself and clients can flourish long term. I just figured I’d pick it up as I went along! Nope…some things you have to actually learn. Ends up I need quite a bit of foundational work…so I began to research.

And after many discarded hopefuls, I’ve found a program that I’m really excited about!! :D I have joined the International Coaching Academy (ICA) and will be working with them for the next while, taking classes, racking up coaching hours, doing my practicum and developing my practice as a (insert specialization I’m to choose later here) Life Coach and earning my certification with the official International Coaching Federation (ICF). I’m then going to go on to become credentialed with Brene’ Brown’s Connections program.

ICA encourages building while learning – so I’m not going to just disappear while I’m doing this (a year or so). I honestly have to say, tho – aside from my intention to continue doing the Daily Sparks every week, I don’t know what I’m going to be offering! Likely a mix of new stuff and old :) I do know I firmly intend to hold on to my spiritual and metaphysical roots as I go through the program, and work them into my new practice as it develops :)

I’m happy and excited about beginning the program :D I’m joining in order to be better equiped to navigate in the ‘real’ world and better serve love and light and bringing out the highest potentials in everyone I have the honor of encountering…including me! :)

I begin this week :D

Love! :)

  1. Congrats on your new adventure! Seems like you haven’t spent much time splashing around in uncertainty, but rather have honed in on your own flow, and gone with it. The most wonderful part of it, that I see, is that you are flowing forward without getting hung up on exactly where it will take you – and for that you are a true inspiration. For me, this is the meaning of faith. Thank you for sharing your ride! I wish you big fun – keep us posted! Namaste. :))

    • ‘ello! Thank you! :D Oh, no – not to spoil the pretty picture but I spent about five years splashing around in uncertainty, truth be told. ;) Gotta admit, it’s that final step before the first step that’s a doozy! Hopefully I can be an inspiration, anyway :D

  2. This may surprise you, but in sharing that you’ve had some splashing around in uncertainty for the past five years is actually even MORE inspiring to me! ….Now my almost six years (of uncertainty in terms of a new “life purpose”) don’t seem as heavy! It feels good to share this road of ‘surrender’ and acceptance with someone….and the underlying buzz of excitement that only uncertainty can bring. That’s flying without a net – the only way to go. Your excitement reads loud and clear and I’m not only happy for you, I’m also very inspired by you. Namaste. :)
