Day Thirty One-Final Day of 31 Day Experiment in Living Spontaneously

Today, July 1, is the last day of my 31 day experiment and it is also the 3rd Eclipse in 30 days.  I woke up this morning at the exact time of the eclipse so I tuned into the energy.

The Sabin symbol for 10 degrees Cancer, which is the degree Cancer is in today is

“A Large Diamond In the First Stages of the Cutting Process”  I feel like the last 30 days and the time since I left my job have been a Diamond Cutting and Polishing process, metaphorically.

According to Astrology for today it’s important to remember that eclipses are the harbingers of new beginnings.  Look at your life as a diamond in the rough, possibly ready for the last fateful tap to make it the “perfectly cut” diamond.  The symbolic degree interpretation of this eclipse suggests the potential for creating something of great value.

The affirmation for the day is Every Day and in every way, I am becoming better and better.

This chart is extremely complex, with a number of very tight minor aspects. It tells us there is a need to face reality and attend to responsibilities and obligations, while remaining open and optimistic to future potentials. A decision can be made now that eliminates a past problem and allows things to move forward freely. The challenge is to integrate new ideas during restricted circumstances. The energy exists to heal old wounds or situations by artistically expressing practical solutions. The key to success lies in the response to fateful events.

Many Aries (which is my sun sign) will look at working for themselves now, or adopting a more flexible approach, thereby freeing up work patterns. It is important not to be a slave of your work, or use it to avoid other important areas of fulfillment. 

In the relationship stakes, Saturn, the planet of commitment and responsibility, still moves through your partnership zone.

I have Uranus in Cancer at almost 6 degrees in my 7th house, the house of partnership so I am imagining the decision and change has to happen around my thoughts and feelings about partnership. This eclipse will have an impact on that area of my life.   The U7 (let’s call them), somewhat like someone with Venus in Aquarius, needs independence in his marriage or significant partnership. He won’t be tied down in any type of traditional relationship. U7 may be attracted to eccentric, brilliant or off-beat types as partners. Or he needs an unconventional arrangement — maybe an open marriage, or at least freedom from the constraints of being at his spouse’s side at all times. He may also feel that significant others are forcing change upon him, or that his spouse undergoes personal revolutions on a regular basis.

This Venus in Aquarius in my house of partnership has always been a double-edged sword for me.  I have known about it for a long time.  How it has impacted my life is that I don’t need to be in a relationship for the sake of being with someone because I am so independent.  My independence has been an issue for some men too.  But the biggest piece is that I need to be with someone who is unconventional, creative, bright and somewhat of a renaissance man, understands the law of attraction, and open-minded because that is who I am.  Add to that attractive, loving, and younger than me and that isn’t easy to find, but somehow I think it will be now.

It is cool to see that a lot of the astrological influences are reflecting just where I am and that I am on the right track.

In regards to the intention I set at the beginning of this experiment about a partner I think for the first time I really am open to a relationship with my equal.  I really believe that he exists and that our paths are converging now.  I feel like I can have both my independence and a relationship at the same time.  I didn’t feel that was possible before.  The shift comes out of knowing who I am and how I can manifest exactly what I want.

As far as re-inventing myself as an entrepreneur this experiment has helped me get clarity. I realized that when I was a therapist, a lot of my energy was being used up, keeping me stuck in my status quo.  I didn’t realize until I was on the other side that listening to and supporting clients, three days a week kept me from expanding in other areas.  Now I feel like anything is possible again.

This experiment has helped me settle into choosing to do nothing if that is what I feel like doing and that I can trust the flow of my life.  The next steps in this process are finding someone to help me with personal branding and imagine what my perfect life will look like.

The other thing that has happened is I look younger and lighter.  Everyday at least one person comments on how I look or says they didn’t even recognize me.  I have become shiny and that is youthanizing.

For my final spontaneous act in this 31 Day period I am going to a spontaneous party at my friend Valerie’s house.  When I left the house the temp gauge in my car read 101 degrees and when I arrived at her house 30 minutes later it read 75!  I drove through wind, turbulence and rain to get to the party.  Interesting metaphor!

Thank you to everyone who has read this blog for the past 31 days and followed my journey.  I hope it has somehow inspired you to expand yourself in a new way.

Day Twenty-five-Experiment in Living Spontaneously

Today I slept in until 8:30…I never sleep in until 8:30. I have been waking up without an alarm clock at 6:30 all of my life. There have been rare occasions, like this morning, where I have slept in. I woke up thinking, ” Today is going to be the day I clean and organize the rest of my studio”. That was before my daughter called and asked me to hang out with her, my son and my grandson. ‘ Sorry studio, but I am living spontaneously and my kids and grandson trump cleaning!’ I did throw a load of laundry in before I left so my clothes are clean.

We went out to breakfast and watched the rain coming down outside the window. Yes, rain. We had Summer yesterday and now we are back to rain. I hope it clears up before the block party tonight.

I waited with anticipation for a special announcement webinar from It Works at 3:00 PM. Can’t wait to find out what it is. So much is happening with the company I can’t imagine what they might announce today. Wow! From now until July 15th anyone can become a distributor with It Works for $99. This includes 8 Ultimate Body Applicators with a retail price of $200 so you can join and make $100, just by selling the Body Applicators and that is just the beginning, because with the decision to join the company you are on your way to a healthier and wealthier life. This means I will be able to build my team to Triple Diamond in the next few weeks, changing my focus as I direct more of my energy into attracting new business partners.

The Block Party was scheduled for 3 and the weather didn’t improve until about 5:30 but for the rest of the evening it was dry and cool. It is hard to believe it is almost July and we are outside in jackets and long pants. As usual, the neighbors were out in full force. I love this neighborhood, and especially the block I live on because we always find ways to connect. I feel safe because I know someone on the block will know if something is wrong because we watch out for each other. In the winter someone on the block usually gets their snow-blower out and does the block from one end to the other so we only have to shovel to the sidewalk. If my car gets stuck I know someone is going to run out and give me a push and when the streets are going to be plowed one of the neighbors sends us all a notice about moving our cars.

Here are some of the highlights:

This is the desert table

This is Sunset Whiffleball. I didn’t know a bat could move that fast!

Ready to hit one out of the park!

Early in the party a young man and his assistant, from a block away, showed up with an electric guitar and sound system, plugged into one of the neighbors houses and rocked out. He was actually pretty good. Last year we had a quartette that was great.

Day 24-Experiment in Living Spontaneously

I started my day at the clinic getting my monthly B12 injection.  I have been getting them for 26 years since the part of my intestine that absorbs B12 was removed during life saving surgery.   After I got my shot the nurse said ” I don’t know if you heard or not but there is a nation way shortage on B12 and we only have 10 doses left”.  Of course I was surprised!  I remember asking my doctor, after my surgery, what would happen if I didn’t get the B12 shots.  He said ” you go crazy and eventually die”.

Perhaps more than what most people might be aware of, vitamin B12 is one exceptional vitamin that is essential for health and day-to-day living, even though it may be needed only in little quantities.  I won’t go into the long list of problems that can occur without it.

I was concerned when I talked to the nurse and as I was leaving the clinic but by the time I got to the car I had shifted into my go with the flow mind.  I began thinking about sublingual B12 that is absorbed under the tongue.  I also started to think about how if this would work, I wouldn’t have to go in to the clinic every month, pay for the shot and the clinic visit and I could get further off the medical grid.  I am very healthy so I only have to see a doctor a couple of times a year.  One of those times is for an annual physical that is required by the clinic so that I can get my prescription for B12 renewed.  Since I haven’t had insurance for a year I have to pay for it myself.   (I couldn’t get insurance because of a titanium plate in my wrist.  I am not kidding!)   Now I am thinking this B12 shortage might be a positive thing in the long run.

Of course I didn’t find anything on the internet about a B12 shortage because the medical community is really good about keeping things like that undercover.  I did find a reference to it in an animal chat room where a person who gets B12 shots for her dog heard it from her vet.  Now to research resources for sublingual B12, which by the way, I had asked my doctor about years ago and was told it wasn’t the best way to take B12.  I bet when I go in next month for my physical they will be more receptive to the idea!

I got my haircut and when I got home I had a new distributor who signed up on-line!  I love when my team grows while I am doing something fun for myself.

The B12 saga got even more interesting because when I got home my friend sent me an article about B12 that talked about the two forms of B12 available in supplements.  One is synthetic and toxic because it contains cyanide and the other is a naturally occuring B12 that is good for you.  Guess what? The B12 that I have been receiving all these years at the clinic is the synthetic one!  They use it because it is cheap and can be purchased in bulk.  This is really turning into a blessing because if I wouldn’t have known about the shortage I wouldn’t have found out there is something better!

I had a great time tonight with a group of people who love to travel…

Day 23-Experiment In Living Spontaneously

I was excited yesterday when my blog hits reach 3000! I have consistently blogged for the past 4 months even though my blog is older than that. I know there are a lot of bloggers with tons more hits but it inspires me to see 3000 because I know it is being read. What the fun blogging if no one is reading what you write!

I picked up a book yesterday on my shopping trip that is really striking a chord with me. It is called “The Renaissance Soul” by Margaret Lobenstine. It is subtitled : Life Design for People have Too Many Passions to Pick Just One. That is so me. Part of this experiment is about redesigning myself and I am looking for resources to help me do that.

As far as having too many passions, I consider myself a visionary artist, a therapist/coach/listener, a networker, an entrepreneur building a business that helps people stay young and healthy, a writer, a healer/psychic/sound therapist, a lover of travel, a mom and grandmom and I am sure there are more. I sold antiques for about 5 years. Other careers I have thought about in my life are architect,archeologist, interior design and a stand up comic. And I want to have an awesome relationship too!  There was a time when I had three jobs at once while raising my children by myself.  I have done the job thing, I have  done it the hard way and now I am doing easy.

I am creating a life where I can do it all! A Smörgåsbord life! I don’t want to create a niche. I don’t want one career that people know me by. I am creating a life that satisfies all of my soul’s desires, that feeds and nourishes me and brings me joy! That is why the book The Renaissance Soul appeals to me. From the book jacket; ” The Renaissance Soul lays out a winning strategy to maximize life and career success for the dynamic and change-loving people who the author dubs “Renaissance Souls.”

Over the past three years I have created a fabulous team, through It Works.  I have gain so much in the process.  I am more evolved, know myself even deeper and have a lot of people who have become my friends.  Not only that but it is allowing me to live the life I have dreamed about since I was twenty and thought I would retire at fifty and see the world.  The timing was off but the dream wasn’t.

I got to hang out with three of my It Works team mates tonight in the It Works booth at Marketfest, a weekly market in White Bear Lake. There were four of us. Set up was pretty comical because it took 4 of us to put of the canopy while people all around us were doing it solo and to see us put up the changing room, well it is just too bad it wasn’t a movie.   We are all awesome business women, we are just not good at tent making!  We lucked out too because this was the first day in a string of days that it didn’t rain.  We wrapped several people, inches were lost and we did a lot of blitzing.

Here is a little photo tour of the evening, sorry some of the images are a bit dark:

                                              Cindy,           Lori                         Me                   Minda

                                                                Our place on the street

Right next to us they were giving away  free cash, look at the stampede!

Right behind us “The Big Strong Men”

Hey!  I am looking for a big strong man…

But are they really “Big Strong Men” or thin guys in their  20’s with pink ties and pink pinstriped shirts?

Anyway…It was just another day of fun and we came away with some cash too!

Day Twenty-Two-Experiment In Living Spontaneously

I love my new life and going with the flow!

It has finally sunk in that I can do what I want when I get up.

Today is going to be a completely different creation than I thought it was going to be.  I was all set to drive to Menomonie, WI to do an interview with Liessa at Liessa’s Hair Studio for my Interviews with Magnetic Business Women section of this blog.  She called me at 7:00 with a family emergency and we had to reschedule, so my slate is clean again.

First thing I did this morning after learning that plans had changed was put on an Ultimate Body Applicator.  It has been a while since I used one.  While I was wrapped I wrote a new article about releasing doubt which was based on the idea that I wrote about in my blog yesterday.  I also did an new page for a website I am creating.

Now I am going to get ready and take a road trip!  I decided to drive So and ended up at the outlet mall where I did some blitzing and shopping.  On the way down I drove into a downpour and had to pull over for a few minutes because it was raining so hard.  On the way back the storm was still hanging over the same city so I got to drive through it again.

Tonight is going to be a quiet night at home.
