Reinvent your life!

When nothing works anymore, when you find no comfort or inspiration from those people activities or places that brought you joy and happiness in the past, rediscover your foundation, your purpose in life.

Begin with your purpose, your reason for being. Use that as the most important information, the foundation you need to reinvent your life. If you have lost your bearings, forgotten your purpose, ignored the callings of your spirit, you will be off course, your foundation will be off kilter and will need repair and rebuilding.

Re-imagine what your life can be.

Draw up new architectural plans to build on your foundation, so to speak. Now that you have rediscovered your foundation, how do you envision your life going forward? What needs to be healed? What will stay the same? What will you add? What will you remove? How do you want to feel? What inspires delights and energizes you? How will you spend your time?

Reinvent new routines and activities for yourself to build a framework for each day that will support your purpose.

Renew your energy with fresh inspirations and high quality self care. Bring in new interior decoration for your life.

Restore your spirit by reinventing your life from the ground up!

New Beginnings

Note from Betty:

Dear friends, Grandmother Cottonwood is coming out of retirement.  Since leaving my day job and working through some health issues, I’m feeling a strong pull to begin channeling GCW again and sharing her words with you.

This connection with the magnificent cottonwood tree lights me up and inspires me – so by doing this blog, I am practicing what she preaches! 

May her words inspire and bless you.

GCW in summer

     On this day, you begin again. You start fresh with a clean slate. You live here and now in this flickering light under my canopy, your heart navigating the journey, your feet bringing you here, step by step.

Now past and future dissolve into this one present moment.  It is the breath, filling and emptying; the breeze stirring my leaves in silver shimmers high above, touching the summer sky.

We are alive!  We have been given the most precious gift of all – Life here on this beloved green planet at this time and in this place.  We each have our place in the ancient circle of life that has sustained our planet for millennia.

If you think your presence here is an accident, a mistake, think again!   A billion or more coincidences, factors, and conditions had to line up perfectly to allow for your creation.

If you think you are helpless, think again! When you align your energy with source, you are a powerful force to be reckoned with

If you think you can’t make a difference in the world, think again!  Every choice you make, every thought you think sends ripples into the universe, creating patterns of energy that interact with others and form what you know as reality.  Choose those thoughts, ideas, feelings, and words that you wish to see made manifest in the world.

All- that- is desires and needs your presence here, shining your light fully, sharing your unique gifts, your loving energy with clarity, grace and joy!
