To Blog or Not to Blog....

I have always loved to write. I have always loved to ask esoteric questions. I have also always loved deep introspective conversations. Since as far back as I can remember I have asked why, how, for whom? I have explored why I am the way I am. What of my past created the uniqueness of me? Why do certain people trigger me, why do I fall in love with certain attributes, and why do I feel so deeply connected to philosophies, lifestyles and practices that are often considered unusual or alternative? I have explored, answered, re-answered and even just shrugged my shoulders and said, "Who knows?" As I developed my spiritual practice I was given more and more opportunities to have these explorative conversations. My journals are in the double digits times 3. I have spent more hours than I could ever count doing "the work", attempting to practice what I preach, reading up to expand my knowledge base and trying to find the right fit for myself. After much time I discovered there was no religion that I fit in, many beliefs I could embrace and several spiritual practices that brought me balance, authenticity and kept me honest with my self. AND over time I learned this was true for many of my peers, my family, my closest friends and my clients.

Onward with the story and journey I went as I became more and more comfortable with my answers to my deep inquisitive questions of self and spirit. And it seemed the more I asked the closer I became in my relationship with Spirit. The Universe responded with life lessons, gifts, affirmations and healthy relationships. Even when the going got tough, I felt connected. I had ways of surviving. I was encouraged to rise above the muck that threatened to drag me in or the drama that many surrounded themselves with for distraction.

Over this time my Spiritual Life Coaching practice has grown and I have shared so much of my journey with my clients, on the work at hand, the trials and tribulations and the celebrations and a-ha moments. "You should really write a blog!" was stated again and again. Hmmmm … to blog or not to blog, that was the question, now.

I already had crossed the bridge into the realm of social media, daily postings on Facebook and Twitter. I also have facilitated at many conferences, hosted workshops, taught lessons, and written newsletters, Skyped sessions, created chats. I have written articles to be posted in newspapers and periodicals, recorded Sound Clouds and more! Blogging? Really?

Admittedly, the writer in me has several books quickening within. Could this help? Would this be the bridge to cross into the world of the "serious writer"? Perhaps. After attending numerous writing workshops and blogging courses…I am finally ready to take the plunge.

So together we shall discuss, explore, delve, share, question, and even honor. Topics will range from Rites of Passage, Goddess Lore, and Self Empowerment. We will explore Our Spiritual Connection to Mother Earth and Whole Living. Suggestions of how we can Honor the Body Temple will be shared and so much more. I welcome your comments, your thoughts, and your experiences. I welcome your suggestions for other topics. I hope you will share the blog with your friends and family and that our community will grow and ripple out further.

The only way we will ever be able to create change and be a part of the creation of the world we hope for is by uniting and supporting one another. This small act of a blog is one simple step in the path of my rippling outward. I hope to get to know you better, become a part of your life and share the journey with you. I look forward to the magic making to be had, the laughter, the tears and the camaraderie that will be shared as we move forward into a future that holds all the possibilities for us!
