Let life teach you what you need to know & an experiment in the gift economy

This week I share reflections on not needing to know where you’re going, how it is going to work, or what is “right.” What if we don’t need to know these things before we try something new? What if life will teach us what we need to learn? I talk about this in terms of my experiment with the gift economy, and it looks to me like it applies to every area of life.

Where are you holding back because you don’t know what comes after your very next step? What are you not doing because you can’t be sure how it will work out? Play with the possibility that each step you take will show you something about the step after that.

How to rock the game of life

This video is a bit longer than usual. It’s all about the freedom we have to make up whatever game we choose to play in life from what matters to what we create to how we keep score. We can’t control the outcomes, but we have infinite choice over the inputs. When we shift our focus from outcomes to inputs, we see that rocking the game of life is more like making art than it is about winning races. Along the way I touch on choosing to work on a gift basis and marrying The Charming Prince. I enjoyed sharing this ride with you, and I hope it leaves you with a good feeling for how much freedom, possibility, and joy are available to you. ♥

Free replay of Expanding Your Wealth is live

The free replay (video and audio versions) of today’s Wholeness Hangout with Nicole Huguenin is live. Click here to watch or to download the audio. 

Our topic was Expanding Your Wealth: How Living into Questions Can Inform Your Richness. We explored the many forms of currency that are invisible until we take a fresh look and how taking that fresh look can expand wealth in multiple dimensions. We identified some fallacies of conventional and unconventional talk about abundance, attraction, and value. We had a lovely time, and we both welcome your stories and questions.

Where did the weekly videos go?

If you’ve been looking for my weekly videos, I seem to have been on sabbatical. 😉 I’ve been sharing previous videos on social media and in my ezine. Here’s a recap of what you may have missed. ♥

There is no way it’s supposed to be

Sometimes we lives as though there is a way things should unfold, that certain things should happen and other things shouldn’t. Our spouses should be faithful. Loved ones should not get cancer. When we look more closely, though, we see that doesn’t make any sense at all. Click here or on the image to watch There Is No Way It Is Supposed to Be.

Nothing is an interruption

I don’t know about you, but I sometimes experience things as inconveniences or interruptions. When I do, they are problematic. But if we take a closer look, how can anything interrupt life? The only thing that interrupts life is arguing with what is. Click here or on the image to watch Nothing Is an Interruption.

When Going with the Flow Isn’t Working

This week, I reprise a video from March, 2016. 

Have you ever felt like you were going with the flow, but the flow wasn’t serving up the insight, support, or momentum you needed? You doubt your choice and wonder if it might not make more sense, just this once, to push the river. What’s likely is that you aren’t going with the flow at all, but that you are standing in the river. This is something to see, not fix. (And the mystery continues…). Click here or on the image to watch. 

Analysis paralysis versus a free mind

There’s a big difference between the analytical thinking we do with our personal minds and accessing wisdom. In a prep call for the July 2015 Wholeness Hangout (see below), Judy Sedgeman made a cogent observation about the relationship between insecurity and analytical thinking that shed, for me, new light on its limitations.

An invitation to a different conversation about wealth

Charge Money for What You LoveFor several years I chafed against conventional thinking about pricing my services. I began to experiment with Pay What You Choose pricing for coaching, but I still wasn’t quite satisfied with where I had landed. A few months ago I shared my interest in the gift economy in a Facebook Group, and another member introduced me to Nicole Huguenin. Nicole graciously agreed to a Skype conversation, and we connected immediately. I was blown away by her insight into the wealth of possibilities available to us when we free our minds to think in new ways about business, money, value, and equity. I knew at once that I wanted to have her as a guest on the Wholeness Hangout.
After growing up in the boon of Silicon Valley and spending 15 years in the education sector, Nicole found it rather financially expensive and emotionally costly to do good work. After a hard stop and move across country she began to ask different questions of herself and communities. Questions such as:
  • What are my gifts?
  • How do I value them and how does society value them?
  • Can we all be rich?
  • Is it possible for all our needs be taken care of?

On Thursday, June 1, Nicole will be joining me for a special Wholeness Hangout, a free Zoom videoconference, to explore these and other questions. I hope you can join us. Click here for details and please spread the word.

If you’d like to see how I’m approaching pricing now, I describe it briefly on my coaching page.

Soul Speak: An invitation to wake up and light up the world

Soul Speak: An invitation to wake up and light up the world

While we are on the topic of transformation, if you haven’t already heard about it, I invite you to check out Soul Speak this season in honor of Wayne Dyer.

When Sheldon Pizzinat invited me to participate in Soul Speak, I hesitated. Does the world really need another telesummit, even one with a spiritual theme?

I said yes because something in Sheldon’s vibe just felt right to me. I sensed that he would be having conversations with the potential to enliven and awaken listeners. Conversations that would add light and meaning to the world.

The intent of the series is to promote awakening so you can more fully embody your talents and gifts and light up the world, something Dr. Dyer did with grace.

REMINDER: Heart of Money Transformational Journey

REMINDER: Heart of Money Transformational Journey

Money is a sore spot for so many people, regardless of whether or not they appear to have enough. It’s no small feat to find sanity, healing, freedom, and agency around this topic.

My friend Mark Silver has developed a deep, rich, and healing course about money called Heart of Money Transformational Journey. He is offering it now on a Pay from the Heart basis. You determine what to invest based on your circumstances, the value you expect to receive, and the guidance of your own sweet heart.

Mark brings extremely high integrity, real (not invented) spiritual awareness and presence, and a profound understanding of the nitty gritty of business to the topic.

If you want to change your relationship to finances, if you want a Divinely-inspired healthy relationship with money, I recommend this 8 week course highly. It runs late January through mid-March.
