EmmaMamie & our Family

Today I spent all day at the Artist as an Entrepreneur Institute. I left the house at 8:00 a.m. and returned after 7:00 p.m. This is the first time since EmmaMammie has joined our household that I have been apart from her for so long.

I came home tired and sore. Sitting and learning inside for 4-6 hour stretches creates a lot of stress on my joints. Sister Goddess Candis came over to give me a thai massage - yummy body love. As we settled into my yoga studio, ZekoMeow and GingerMama entered the room and joined us. Elly Belly was surveying us all from under the bed. This is usually the routine when healing chi takes place. All of our souls are together in the room - feeling and grounding the energy.

Tonight, I am extremely sensitive. Being around 59 creative souls has opened up energy channels and neural pathways that were long dormant. My fingers and toes tingle and Sister Goddess Candis cannot apply any pressure at all. She lays her fingers down and lets her heat seep into me. Rather than our usual stretches, we are rotating the joints - slow and easy.

To my surprise, EmmaMammie made an appearance. She purred her way over to the yoga mats - sashaying her way right past GingerMama without even a hiss or a nod to ZekoMeow and Elly Belly. As Candis massaged the crown of my head, EmmaMammie jumped over my throat. I felt her tail swishing as it touched my lips. I sensed my throat chakra activate. Just as Candis was moving her fingers down my scalp and onto my temples, EmmaMammie did it again. She jumped over my throat from the opposite direction - her tail swishing my heartspace.

She then settled on a Zabufon pillow and purred as she watched the gentle stretching and touching occur. My family sat there and held sacred space while I released the tension built up in my body. I let go of the emotions I picked up. I adjusted to the new level of sensitivity and allowed myself to go deep into my body.

Thank you EmmaMammie for joining our family tonight in ritual. Thank you for sharing your love with Sister Goddess Candis and holding sacred space for me to learn about my sensitivities and how the CHI flows within me.

Day 2 - EmmaMammie

Hi World - this house is so exciting.

The DOG (they call her GingerMama) got the humans going at 5:45 a.m. this morning. Goddess peeked in to check up on me. We got to snuggle for a few minutes and then she gave me fresh water. Woohoo. She closed the door. I think I'll go back to bed.

Woohoo - she's back - she smells so yummy - like grass and trees and dog and wait - she's putting something down on the floor in a pretty blue bowl - I think it's food - a big stretch - I am getting up for some of this.

Today, I would like to get a better perspective of my space. I'm going to jump up on the table and take a look. An IPAD - ha ha ha - lots of heat coming out of this thing - I'll just rub my head here.

A gray Meow walked into my room today - looked like he owned the place - walked right across the room and jumped onto the windowsill and then he was gone. Perhaps I will go for a little walk today myself and explore this house and the smells and the sounds or maybe I will go take another nap for Meow.

The Gray Meow growled an intro - my name is Senor Zeko - follow the rules Little One and we will get along just fine. He even let me jump onto his bookshelf and take a catnap together. Woohoo. Meow for nowe

A new Soul

Today I met my Fairy GodMother and the GodFather.

They brought me Emma.
She came in a little pink cat box - so shy and sweet.

I prepared a space for her in my creative room - she crawled under the cabinets until she could scope out her new surroundings.

Books and more books - a standing Pilates machine - a bench - some drums - a table - electronics - and three HUmans - the GodParents and me.

Emma came out and gave the GodFather a headbump - rubbed herself around his legs and approved of the situation.

Noah walked into the room and joined us. Emma, LOVERGirl that she is, immediately recognized my LOVERBoy and made him her own. Ha ha ha.

She fell in love with her bed and retired - so much excitement in one day - aware that there is so much more to explore and other souls to meet - her water untouched, she purred herself to sleep.

Watching this soul stirs up so many emotions for me - missing Lucky Girl and feeling so blessed for the opportunity to open my heart and home to this sweet soul. Watching Emma she looks right into my eyes, stretches and comes to headbump me - her purr so strong and pure. "EmmaMammie" she tells me. "EmmaMammie" I put out into the Universe. She headbumps me again and wraps her tail around my wrist. "EmmaMammie" welcome home.

Thank you Fairy Godmother Natty and GodFather Eddy for this OMazing gift of life and putting our soul family back together again.

Romanian Adventures

Here are some of the pictures of my trip to Romania - such sweet memories - and of course being in the Mountains. Woohoo.

Romanian Adventures

Pusi Pusi

which means Kiss Kiss in Romanian and is the name of the PussyCat above with whom I shared a bed. I spent a week in Romania with my Mom visiting my Mom's Mom - my Mamama. Decided to go back to the roots and uncover all of our mama dramas.

My grandma lives in Bucarest with her pussycat, Pusi. We spent two days walking around this city (a miniature Paris with its own Eiffel Tower) and eating - COVRIGI (homemade pretzels) and KLATITE (crepes) and DOVLECEI (light green zucchini).

Then we took a 3 1/2 hour train ride to Brasov, a little town in the midst of mountains. This is where my Mom spent her childhood - swimming and hiking and playing.

I found a boutique hotel about 6 miles out of town and into the mountains - Poaina Brasov (which is a ski resort). This place is called Chambers n Charms - it only has 9 rooms - of which 5 are suites. I rented a Moroccan themed room with a bathtub large enough for three. Upon entering our suite, you felt like you had left Romania and entered into another world. The decor was sublime - red walls and blue walls - and curtains to the ceiling and teapots and hookahs and candles and carpets. This suite was OMazing with a patio overlooking the mountains. Woohoo. And Mamama loved their all you can eat breakfast served every morning. A great Woohoo to Alexandru who met our every demand and made this a most magnificent stay.

We were met in town by friends of my parents (Doru and Michaela) who escorted us everywhere and then some. We even went to the town of Bran and saw the reputed castle of Count Dracului.

We met up with an Auntie I had never met yet - who prepared a 10 course meal (standard Romanian hospitality). I fell asleep in the third course - totally stuffed and catching up with my jetlag - ha ha ha.

We immersed ourselves in the wonderful mountain air and hiked (Mom and me) and ate farm fresh eggs and more COVRIGI and artisanal cheeses. We laughed and sang and shared stories.

It was OMazing reconnecting with the female members of my family - helped me recharge my batteries and get grounded. My next post will include more photos of this mother-daughter-grandmother excursion.

Deja vu - Signs from Above

I asked the guy at the front desk if there used to be a French restaurant a few doors down. he told me yes, almost 10 years ago. wow! this is the same hotel I stayed with Auntie Maggie. Discovering that I am in the same space, all these years later, is a little bit like being in the twilight zone. Especially since Auntie Maggie passed away two weeks ago. I mean, what are the odds? Of all the hotels in New York? Ha ha ha.

the more I think about it, the more it makes sense. Auntie Maggie was the first female in our family - and one of our matriarchs - to whom I opened up to about the Goddess. She read Empowering Women by Louise Hay because I asked her to so we could talk about it. she could totally relate and laugh with me regarding my experiences here. It's almost like having her here in spirit. My guardian angel. Watching over me in NYC.

I asked for a sign. I was guided to Osho's web site and found these words:

"There must have been something left undone, because it seems life is taking you back to a point that is hauntingly familiar. It’s only happening because your mind couldn’t conceive of the depth available, and you moved on too fast. Life won’t be side-tracked. Go deep. Dig a little more, go to the very end of it: you will always find purer gold, the deeper you go into yourself.”

Osho, The Beloved, Vol. 1, Talk #10

Ha ha ha. I am digging real deep Auntie Maggie. thanks for being part of my journey - even from beyond. Thank you for always empowering me to be in my feminine essence and follow my dreams. I love you, all ways.

school of womanly arts

What an OMazing feeling - being in a room with 200+ Sister Goddesses - hailing from 33 states and 8 countries - all hear to remember about the sacred feminine art of pleasure. the air is palpable with excitement and anticipation. and then Mama Gena makes her grand entrance. It's electrifying.

She's even more OMazing in person than as the voice of our Pink Bible, School of Womanly Arts - which is page by page a manual on how to live life fully in our feminine essence. mama Gena is a pleasure expert, having made it her life lesson to research pleasure and reMIND her Sister Goddesses of the same.

Today, we learnt how to brag- how to share our accomplishments and focus with gratitude on the good in our life. We took dance breaks to connect our minds with our bodies and let the information sink in. we laughed, we cried, we shared stories and grew closer, as a group and as women.

10 of us had lunch together at Phillippe Chow (veggie lettuce wraps) as we exchanged names and where we were from and discovered synchronicities.

after class, I went back to Central Park to smell the trees and see some grass. I miss my abundant tree filled front lawn. so blessed to connect with even a little bit of nature in this big city.

Going back to the hotel, I had the sense of Deja vu. passing by Henri bendel's and arriving at my hotel from another direction, I realize I have been here before - many years ago, with my great Auntie Maggie. She would be so proud of me now.

We start the adventure again tomorrow.

New York, new York

Signed up for Mama Gena's Mastery class.
Got on an airplane today and headed for the Big Apple for my first weekend of Sister Goddesses and learning the art of pleasure. A little nervous about being in the city by myself. However, my curiosity took over and I started walking and exploring this OMazing city.

I have a nice room at The Shoreham, 55th and 5th Avenue - seven blocks from Central Park. I desired to go to MOMA. Walking back to my hotel, I got lost and ended up in front of MOMA. I entered and they were giving free passes to the museum. Woohoo!

saw some fabulous art - six floors full - had a great walk - found some healthy food at The Pump (baked falafel on a bed of greens with some cucumber and carrots and a green drink for my morning breakfast).

Not having a bath at home and the jacuzzi being repumped - I am so very excited when i have a bathtub - i stopped at a pharmacy and bought bubble bath. I luxuriated in the hot water fragranced with jasmine and mint. And then i sat in the IJoy massage chair provided in the rooms and let it do its thing on my back, shoulders and neck.

So stoked about tomorrow and meeting other trendsetting women who call themselves Sister Goddesses.
very good, very good, yay!

Happy Valentine's Day

WSM Noah and I had a Valentine's date last night.
What a beautiful end to a fabulous day.

We spent the day with our PEEPS - the people we love.
Long walk with GMama -
Spending the day with Uncle Josh
Valentine's dinner at Mom and Dad's with SoulMama and our family Peeps.
Dennis DeYoung performing STYX with an orchestra concert.

Last night at the Broward Performing Arts Center Au Rene Theatre, I saw him live for the very first time - at age 62 - with the same voice I used to listen come out of my record player in 1981. Woohoo.

I was giddy with glee, belly full we settled into our seats. I heard him first and felt myself melting - somewhere back in time - a deeply embedded memory of playing records in the basement in Montreal. The 42 year old who sat down became a 14 year old hip hopping air drumming singing every lyric in your seat kind of neighbor. The orchestra was OMazing giving these rock ballad operas a depth to the auricular senses as the beat reverberated around us and through us. Total Emotional Intelligence. Ha ha ha.

WSM Dennis made me melt even more when he introduced us to his wife Suzanne of 42 years (we love you Suzanne) and then played Lady with an introductory Bolero de Ravel from the orchestra. Sigh. Heart open, body beat synchronizing to the common vibration - I felt true bliss in my heart - my head on Noah's shoulder, we sat in the relative dark - feeling our common heartbeat - we and our PEEPS. Peeps who knew the music before ME and after ME and chose to show up to soak it in.

We sang, we cried, we laughed, and we sang some more. WSM Dennis and his conception of creative harmony between the genres - Don't Let It End (with Claude Debussy Claire de la Lune) - Lorelei (with Mozart's Eine Klein Nacht) and some OMazing renditions of Sweet Madame Blue, Best of Times and the grande finale with Come Sail Away - alltime favorite - can even play the opening tune on the piano - ha ha ha.

We left the theatre feeling all warm and fuzzy - hearts full and happy.

Thank you LOVERBoy for your family and mine and WE.

Happy New Year

HA HA HA - I'm back.
2010 was such an OMazing year of Growth for me.

I pushed myself hard to get out of my comfort zone and try new things. So many experiences I had that scared the BEjesus out of me and pushed me back into my shell where I BEcame a shellfish and stopped sharing. Ha ha ha.

Except the shell does not fit anymore. It cracked and the light of love filtered in.

Slowly, as the light warms me up, I have treaded on my tippy toes so I could examine the deep dark spaces that made me feel like hiding in the first place. Being the Lucky Girl I am, I am learning to balance ever so slowly as I find my way.

Using my muscles and superpowers, I am breathing and leaning into whatever comes my way - no longer afraid or shy or quiet. Ha ha ha. Daring myself to be authentic and transparent - woohoo - and share all of the cool beans that make me ME here.

And so, on the 27th day of January, I set myself free to truly love me so that I can better love others and bring Peace to this World.
