I know with certainty, doubt only rises when my mind places labels and words upon the experience; my heart knows the way, absolutely.
While I much prefer moving through World barefoot, these shoes felt like “glass slippers” to me. I loved the feel of trying them on. I loved that wearing them brought visions of *magic*…exquisite food, laughter and love, music and dancing, kissing and hand-holding, moonlight and sunrise…
As you can see in the photo, they didn’t really “fit” well…neither could my mind wrap around the possibilities presented by them….but my heart said “Yes, please” to the feel and the vision.
They sure do not “fit” but I might go back and buy them. It’s not about the shoes, it is about the energetic feeling, the confidence required to wear them, the impracticality of them–and all that they symbolize–in my life as it currently is (I tend to love impractical).

And, something new and different this week on Facets (reflecting all of this new and different in my life).
I love to play with words. I love simplicity. I love the power of the meaning. I love passion. I combine all of that into my wordplay on Twitter in #sixwords.
This site is called Facets because there are many facets to me (to you, too). And, I think if you follow me here, you would have no idea that this side of me exists. I love to play, with passion. (see, six words!).
Sharing this side of me allows you to see me not as a clarity and energy facilitator who writes about esoteric concepts such as presence and abundance, but also as a writer who practices esoteric concepts.
When I post on Twitter, it is a reflection of something in my life. For the #sixwords category, sometimes the phrase just flows; sometimes I play with the words, whittling down long phrases until I get to six words; sometimes I use the thesaurus to add flavor. (And in my life, playing with words also means that energetically I am playing with the concept, so by day’s end something that might have felt painful is now dissolved because I have played with it in a “fun way” all day).
The frequency of my posting in this category varies…sometimes I post often in a day, sometimes I skip a few days. When the words rise, I play with them, then post. When the feeling resonates strongly, I match them energetically to a photo and create an affirmation. This is an example of “how” I honor organic growth in my work.
I often do not add punctuation, because leaving inflection open to interpretation also leaves the meaning open to interpretation. I think poetry is about what we feel and allowing that feeling to change each time we read it. For me it’s not about the reaction to the words, it’s about creating from the feeling the words give me.
The biggest thrill for me currently is that many of the posts from others in this category are heart-wrenching, full of pain…so to inject some positive, uplifting thoughts and still remain on the “main board” and receive re-tweets is wonderful.
This week’s #sixwords:
leaves falling gently reflect organic growth.
tears enliven heart whispers with hope.
Curious and open…potent, empowering, combination.
my desire to see you, dissipated.
often “no” becomes a wonderful affirmation.
pivotal: the moment you choose forgiveness.
Which speaks most strongly to you?
(See how I combined magic and play together…first I opened your heart to new and different, then I shared new and different with you...eased myself into vulnerability by sharing what I am comfortable with first, then the part I felt vulnerable about …wonderful technique to use as you create and connect!).
Much peace and abundant love,
Reminder: Experiment. Explore. Experience.
