This weekend I had the pleasure of passing this GIFT/knowing forward. My cousin Mama Goddess Mantha & her two munchkins did some Arts & Craft and I showed her how to play this game. She called me Monday and told me I created a monster. She's already made four.
And me, I'm still playing.
Power of Goddesses - tis' a beautiful thing.
LOL!!!! Ha Ha Ha!!!I usually laugh at least TEN times a day. Hee hee!! Now, on Tuesdays and Thursdays, at Laughter Yoga I laugh at least 50-60 times before, during and after. Ho Ho!!! The effects of a good session can keep me going all day. Can you give me a HO HO HA HA HA!!!
Soup: What do your sunglasses look like? Why, exactly what you would expect from a Cat Goddess. Meow, purr, purr.
Salad: You win a free trip to anywhere on your continent, but you have to travel by train. Where do you go? Pack my bags, I'm getting on the train and traveling through the Rocky Mountains - take me to Colorado, Idaho, Big Sky Country Montana, New Mexico and British Columbia. Ooh baby!! What a trip that would be.
Main Course :Name one thing you consider a great quality about living in your town/city. So many great qualities and so many things to be grateful for the city where I live. I live in Hollywood, Florida. My city has some awesome parks, fabulous trees and I live 10 minutes away from the beach. We are a very eclectic city - right between Fort Lauderdale and Miami - cozy and sleepy, yet hip and diverse. And the weather - oh my Goddess, balmy beautiful warm breezes and days full of sunshine. Another thing that makes this Goddess purr....
Dessert: If the sky could be another color, what color do you think would look best? Peach sherbert and pink blossoms with a slight tinge of fuchsia. Yummy!!!Thank you Goddess Greenish Lady of fusing these two projects together. Your inspiration is very much appreciated.

I have been quiet these past ten days - absorbing where I'm at - listening to my body's messages and truly absorbing all the spaces within - basking in silence. My horoscope put it nicely: " slowly returning from an extended vacation, even if you never left home. You've been journeying in the orbits of your own thoughts"
This BIRTHday month, memories of the past have been filtering in, showing me slivers of darkness and blockages - areas of myself that need healing. I have been gentle with myself, paying attention to these places that need love and light and a shift in perspective.
Among these memories was one of me in elementary - I had just moved to a new country - I was learning a new language, new ways of being (customs) and enrolled in a school where I was not like the others culturally. There I met a formidable foe. A 5 year old mirror of me who knew it all and was angry and was going to take it out on somebody. Along with a gang of boys, this ringleader made going to school a very traumatic experience. She also helped in the myriad of stitches and bruises I experienced back then.
Last week, I found Goddess FOE on the internet. Goddess bless Wikipedia!!! GODDESS FOE wrote a book that educates and sheds light and is a part of what will bring peace to this Earth. GODDESS FOE is also a professor who specializes in research about Child Terrorists - LOL!!!
I took a big step. I took responsibility for myself and called GODDESS FOE. I moved through my irrational False Expectation Appearing Real and called her - a voice from the past (35 years ago).
As I held myself accountable for my part of the past and apologized for any behavior of mine which might have triggered hers, we had a lovely conversation in the NOW and caught up with names familiar to the two of us. It brought back some bittersweet memories. And while I do not have complete recall of THEN, somewhere in my body cells released their memory of tightness and rigidity and shifted back into alignment.
Gifts of this experience besides healing my body - I met a LITTLE PEEP inside of me who was hiding for so long and felt so cold in the shadows. As I made the call and traveled through my FEAR, she took a few steps into the light of my soul and decided to come out and sing.
And the Universe presented me with another gift for SHOWING UP.
I had been searching for another childhood friend for the past ten years. This telephone calls provided clues and answers which brought me to an email address and reconnection to GODDESS FRIEND and the sweeter memories of my past.
Life is so good!!! I am so grateful for these gentle life experiences. I am so very blessed.
Thank you Goddess Christi for being a FLFT (Fearless Leader of Feminine Truth) and sharing your coaching skills and helping me re-MEMBER my intentions and facilitating this journey.

On my 36th birthday, I learned how to surf at an all women's surf camp. A week full of femmes- bruises - water and more water and plenty of sun.
On my 38th birthday, I went to WSM Noah's 20th high school reunion and met some amazing brothers and sisters that he'd gone to school with in Israel.
I also took a flying leap on a trapeze (did it 3x) and learnt some archery and wall climbing as well.
This year, as I approach my 39th birthday, I challenged myself to meet new friends - expand my circle, open my heart and trust the Universe. This week before my birthday - I have given myself a new experience of communion - connecting at heart level.
In these last two days, I have met two amazing, powerful, passionate and beautiful Goddesses - FLFTs - Fearless Leaders of Feminine Truths. Breaking bread and sharing stories and giggling and laughing and hugging. So far, so excellent!!! I opened myself up to new friends and found soul sisters from previous lifetimes.

- Remember that the sun will still rise tomorrow even if I had one too many slices of pizza or an extra scoop of ice cream tonight.
- Never blame my body for the bad day I'm having.
- Stop joining in when my friends compare and trash their own bodies.
- Never allow a dirty look from someone else to influence how I feel about my appearance.
- Quit judging a person solely by how his or her body looks — even if it seems harmless — because I'd never want anyone to do that to me.
- Notice all the amazing things my body is doing for me every moment I walk, talk, think, breathe...
- Quiet that negative little voice in my head when it starts to say mean things about my body that I'd never tolerate anyone else saying about me.
- Remind myself that what you see isn't always what you get on TV and in ads — it takes a lot of airbrushing, dieting, money, and work to look like that.
- Remember that even the girl who I'd swap bodies with in a minute has something about her looks that she hates.
- Respect my body by feeding it well, working up a sweat when it needs it, and knowing when to give it a break.
- Realize that the mirror can reflect only what's on the surface of me, not who I am inside.
- Know that I'm already beautiful just the way I am.

As I was sitting in the car driving around with WSM Noah, this license plate caught my eye. Yes, it is time to let go of all the chains that bind me and just BE WILD and BE ME.
And this is the intention that I set for myself in 2008. BE WILD and BE ME and BE FREE. It is amazing how this one act of self-love practiced consistently can inspire so many others to do the same.
Last night I danced with abandon. Dressed in a gypsy black skirt with my legs (oh so hairy) showing and a tie-dye heart tanktop and my hair flowing - no thing mattered except for the music and the moment.
And the girls (GODDESSES IN REAL LIFE) at the party ran to the dance floor to join me in celebrating the happiness and joy I felt as I let myself be. And we danced and laughed and BE.
