Exploring the Possibilities

Lightness and Being… July 1, 2011

There is a shift happening on our planet…a major shift. And I feel myself moving to new places….I’m not ‘myself’ for ‘myself’ is changing. As I feel the ‘old’ in my world coming up again, feelings, situations that I recognize, I realize they are the mirages I need to catapult me elsewhere…..somewhere more fitting for who I am becoming. It’s challenging, this process. I am out of my comfort zone for sure.


Just where I (in ways) like to be. Moving forward, moving forward….

To me, it’s something about moving into ‘heart energy’, moving away from pain and fear into an unconditional acceptance and love toward ourselves and others.

How does THAT fit into our current world. Might we be willing to let go of the pain and suffering which we all embrace more often than we might or like to?

Heart Energy....it has its own vibration

I am having my own awakenings. I am experiencing many of the old unfavorite feelings coming forth, asking me ‘do you really want to be here….again’?

The answer is a clear and emphatic ‘NO!’ Awareness first, and then the conscious choice to CHANGE. ME, as this is no one else’s job.

So, I sit with the discomfort as best I can and know in doing so, it will shift to something new.

How to ‘be love’….keep a connection to something greater than me. Allow others to BE who they are and not let who they are affect me. And then, what am I willing or unwilling to accept in my world?

How might I BE love….stay in that connected state….connected to the love that is available to us moment by moment? And, what IS ecstatic bliss. How might we move there, stay there?

I recently had a basic numerology reading….I find this ancient art, science….fascinating. The fllowing paragraph, about ME, captivated my attention.

‘You also have a tendency to jump to conclusions or make assumptions about others without fully analyzing the matter first. People are often startled by your tendency to “look before you leap.” For this reason, you need a right hand man or woman or some kind of best friend to encourage you to sleep on important matters before you make a split decision. ‘

I find this to be true. And…

‘You love change. You live to experience as much as possible in the shortest amount of time possible. You appreciate the fact that life is short and are bound and determined to make the most of every minute you have on this earth. You have an inquisitive mind and a thirst for adventure that is only slaked by the collecting of unusual experiences and plenty of travel.

Your adaptable nature puts you at home anywhere. You are also a bit of chameleon that is able to transform its appearance and nature to suit the environment. You are a big believer in the phrase “When in Rome.. Do as the Romans do.” Your closet is usually full of many costumes, as part of your soul’s satisfaction is to do a bit of “play acting” in real life.’

This all resonates with me. And I question…

How to BE REAL with ‘what is’….be with the pain, the joy…stay with it 100% and things can easily shift and shift and shift! How might we move into ‘God consciousness’. I want heaven on earth. And again, isn’t that up to ME to divine. Sure it is!

‘You believe that an expression of true love for another soul is the courage to let them go to pursue their own path’.

Certainly my mind agrees and my heart too though it snags on old stories which have been coming up for me to release….as they are just stories where I forget my own connection and divinity.

So today…being with what is…not so comfortable as I’m a one speedy for comfort and solutions. Sometimes things take time….this pot needs to boil before bubbling over into something new.

And, it will. I trust that it will and no doubt sooner than I realize.

It Started with A Teal Circle… June 11, 2011

Drape me please in teal

….in the middle of a luscious brown cement floor. I love discovering new spaces which FEEL right to me.

I walked into the Athens Salon and Spa and was immediately inspired, by the colors, the decor, the product line (Bb shampoos and conditioners), the jewelry and the entire business model which each practitioner demonstrated will skillfull savvy and warmth.

I’m in North Carolina…have been all week….I’m on a transformative journey….finding my way, the manner in which I want to spend my days….how I might coax a new feel, a new look, a new body, a shifted outlook. And, it’s been fun. I’ve hired a trainer who’s helping me to season some muscles who really love to stretch and play.

More on this blog later, but for the moment, a teaser….I met some new friends before leaving Georgia….at a hair salon where I was again exploring a new look….away with long tresses, they just aren’t me…..sassy and shorter is me.

Below, one of the lovely hair goddesses, Ami, bedecked in peacock tatoos and so much more, and Elizabeth, in the hat, who coiffed me in new fashion.

More comments to come….sleep beckons this weary body. Enjoy the body art on these new friends of mind, bold, courageous, lovely young women. What a fun afternoon we had last Saturday.

More news to share shortly….

Yeah Jack….Yeah… May 16, 2011

It bares…bears….beeeairs……

repeating….

‘The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes “Awww!”’ -Jack Kerouac

Let it go...let it happen....let it go....

Yeah. Awwwwwww……Roman candles lit….intention laid, (or better God, don’t forget, (inspiration) or better)…..BLAST OFF!

I find myself in immense gratitude this day. If we’ll only trust our sight. And more, and more….

More is full of but one thing in the context I share…life, fullness, living, exploration, abundance, joy, love, freedom.

More is good, better, best.

Ooooooh, please trust me on this one. I’m an explorer….I’ve seen it. Smelled, touched and sunk into it all…..more than once.

I couldn’t help myself.

Oh for the calling.

‘Just trust it,’ I am reminded, ‘just trust it’.

And so I shall.

Watch, and I’ll take you there.

Love, BB

 

Now is the time for all good….hmmmmm… March 23, 2011

…for all good men and women, to come to the aid of their soul’s purpose!!

Timing is NEARLY everything, along with a mind, heart and spirit READY to move. And I am ready to move. The drag before the ‘boing’ has felt like forever to me though after a crisis of sorts (how long has it been), and a morning and afternoon by my campfire in my back forest, some prompts from friends old and new…the path is clearing and off I go.

I don’t need much more than that as things will sort themselves out as I ‘intend’ forward. And I am. AND, I’ll mark this evening as the (new) starting gate for a fresh chapter.

I’ve fashioned a new spot in my upstairs office for some disciplined (so fun) writing and creation with a bit of structure, (oooh but not too much for this one or I’ll buck like a bronco and revolt….it’s just me).

And I have some things which have been brewing. Suddenly my body wants to move, I’m seeing the symbols and signs beckoning me on and there is nothing yet to do but put the music on, dance and twirl about awhile, (my readying ritual) and get to creating.

Thank you medicine men and women in my world for your whispers in the wind, your encouragement, your ability to SEE parts of me I cannot at times and for your curiosity. Without my friends, in the spirit realm as well as in my bricks and mortar world, I’d be but a shell of my full and impassioned self.

And when we declare what IS…..so it is! Onward ho!! (With a passport in hand, etherial and tactile both, JUST in case)!

A reminder to me, to you if you’d like….to jump off that ‘cliff’ with abandon and let the wild wind BLOW! Might we all create with abandon….it’s as much a birthright as is our ability and right to breathe, love, reason…or sleep. Glory be!!

Fearless Love (by Bonnie Raitt)

Come my love
Come bravely to me
Let your heart be still
For our time
Has come my tender one
To be free of will

And fly
Blind on fearless love
Let them wild winds blow
We’ll shine
On all we’re fearful of
Then we’ll let it go
Let it go

Skippin’ stones
Across the great unknown
Safe at water’s edge
Don’t look down, baby
We’re gonna leave this losin’ town
And leap out from the ledge

And fly
Blind on fearless love
Let them wild winds blow
We’ll shine
On all we’re fearful of
Then we’ll let it go
Let it go

It’s Probably Robert Duvall March 11, 2011

So many roles he’s played over the years. He’s special.

As a backdrop to some evening work earlier this week, I watched ‘Sling Blade’ with Billy Bob Thornton, (another peach of an actor).

Robert Duvall as his father was brilliant.
(And Dwight Yokam the perfect manipulative, arrogant, self serving, pushy ass, covering an insecure, misdirected man….WELL played)! So much of what he performed in this film, (Yokam), how he moves, his whiney voice….the nuiance, the immersion into his character….terrific! OR, there is always the possibility that he’s like that in ‘real’ life.

I like that expression…’real life’! Funny. It’s all real. It’s something too when you notice how you’ve changed and move differently than you perhaps once did in your life NOW, than perhaps long ago or even awhile ago. Our blueprint is our blueprint but all drawings can be erased or painted over…we can play whatever character suits us best.

Back to my protagonist. ‘Tender Mercies’ is perhaps my favorite Robert Duvall film. His struggle and dichotomy of character so perfectly played.

His recent ‘Get Low’ is another study in character, his final speech about losing the married woman he was planning to run away with is heart wrenching, tragic, real. He touches deep within and with that specificity we feel it too, as we have all been to these places of deep regret, experienced loss, the alone moments that shape and chisel exactly WHO we are.

This is part of why I loved acting.

So, this week, I watched Duvall, met some new people, wondered how to discern one ‘reality’ from my next, spoke to a woman who I grew up with whose father died….hearing her say ‘I love you’ to me despite not being in touch for almost 40 years and I visited with a former love, realizing how while we conversed, I’d so clearly moved on and why.

And such is life, moving, moving, twisting and turning. I propped my eyes open and worked late into the evening last night, organizing, clearly, throwing out more STUFF, to move my business forward, to move ME forward, to create time for new things as I’m uplifted by potential and certainly hope to exercise a GOOD measure of MY potential before leaving the earth.

(And speaking of leaving the planet, have you seen Robert Duvall in ‘Road’ with Viggo Mortgenson…(another favorite). Stunning in his portrayal of the old man with glossy, opaque eyes hanging on in a post apolcalyptic world).

So, as we say up north….’God willing and the creek don’t freeze’….or, if I’ll let go and allow all good to come in as she wants only to do.

With tender mercy and gratitude AND a heart wide open, so it is. This or better says I, this or better!! I say, BETTER…because I can. Why not?

So, it’s probably Robert Duvall, and people like him who fuel and inspire me, the way they weave who they are and who they are becoming, their ‘characters’ so to speak, which, by their example (in ‘real life’ or fiction), will help transport me ‘there’.

Bloom Where You Are Planted! February 1, 2011

The team at Carl House have been having a ball meeting brides, brides, brides over the past few weekends!! We appeared the last two weekends at the GA Bridal Show Events….(great turnout) in both Gwinnett and Athens and last weekend at the Bridal Extravaganza! My take on the Bridal Extravaganza held at Peachtree 200 on the video clip below. WHAT a show it was!

(I MUST stop making faces every time a camera shoots my mug….)!!

Carl House Table: Bloom Where You Are Planted!

Carl House participated in the table top competition which was a blast…our theme: ‘Bloom Where You Are Planted’. We frankly weren’t fully aware of what the entire event was meant to be until LAST week. I incubated an idea at top speed, (fun to have this diversion)….shopped at 5 stores in 3 hours and had the needed accessories for my ‘Abundance’ theme! Our Carl House Floral Designer, Kimberly Coates added in her creative florals to complete my vision. (I particularly like our gold headed goddess, Abunduntia)! Our partner linen company, CoverUps, contributed their gorgeous aqua linens and the table was bedecked with jewels, plates which read ‘believe’ and quotes around abundance and prosperity at each place setting! Oh and two glass heads which were my favorite, sprouting grass atop their noggins. Yes, fun, fun, fun to create!

Below….our theme expounded upon!

Bloom Where You Are Planted!

Our table is a microcosm of rich abundance, the potential in our lives. ‘Bloom Where You are Planted’ is attributed to all of the following sources: Afghan Proverb, Nancy Reader Compion’s Aunt Grace, Mary Engelbreit, a song, and an “old garden saying”. To us, it is a phrase hinting at life as a celebration and choice, our opportunity to choose, create, imagine and consider the possibilities in our lives! The colors in our tabletop hint at the divine, the vast sea and the sky, live flowers blooming from the woman’s head a metaphor for all things living, beautiful and possible.

Our message is the reminder to move forward ‘as if’, whatever we imagine can become true and to believe in ourselves. Our teal, silver and gold are reminiscent of the magic of the Incas, the brilliance of the heavens and the promise of all things abundant if we’ll allow for them. The shimmering aqua globes represent a mini world, a resplendent globe and the bejeweled candles symbolize the importance of passion in our lives. Colorful fabric, wine, and flowers accented with feathers are a reminder to celebrate, enjoy, to fly toward our desires! Finally, the sculptured glass heads…a call for expansion of our minds into our hearts… believing with each breath that what we put out to the world comes back to us, or better!

Our message is about the power of this moment and then the next, fulfilled and fulfilling! Carpe diem all the way!

And wow, the designers were out at this show. A beautiful array of table decorations which frankly, blew us away! How delightful to have been in such incredible company.


Our Goddess of Abundance...Abunduntia!!


Very good company indeed!

And more….

And more….

And glorious more….

And did I say more!!

No, we didn’t win, but as with the Oscars, we were just delighted to be a part of ‘the show’.
Thank you one and all for inspiring us all!! Ooooh, the possibilities!
But ooooh, oooooh, next year, NEXT year….we’re brewing some ideas as I type, yes…..AS I type!
