Do’s and Don’ts
Please don’t pitch your stuff EXCEPT on the promo threads. In fact, failure to follow this one rule will likely cause you to give up your spot in our group.

DO

  • Share inspirational, fun and even silly thoughts, but not overused memes
  • Show us your personality in all it’s wonderfulness
  • Share relevant, useful tips that add value to the lives and businesses here
  • Ask questions about business, especially about blogging, social media, closing deals, booking clients, live networking, and creating connections with clients
  • Ask questions about spirituality, mystical tools and finding services
  • Ask for support when you need it, this group is filled with beautiful, brilliant people who have dedicated their lives to helping – so don’t be afraid to ask for what you need
  • Pipe up and share during specific “days” – see below
  • Put us as a “favorite” in your groups so you can come and visit often
  • Have FUN & Build relationships

DON’T

  • Drop posts/links and leave. I know you want the world to see your newest blog post or ezine, but no one likes someone who is constantly pushing their stuff, right? So get to know people, find out what they want and need, and then on appropriate days you can share your links. This page isn’t a pitchfest.
  •  Pitch your business or event except on threads where they are requested
  •  Sell your MLM program here or private message people in this group pitching your stuff – it’s just not cool and you will be removed from the group for doing so
  • Create like/follow ladders – they are so NOT spiritually tuned in, and besides, they do not work
  • worry about always being right
  • post FB live videos on this page

A Decade

If you ask my love, I’m not much good at sentimental dates or anniversaries. Other than my birthday most days seem like all the others and I guess my interest lies more toward the here and now then the MILESTONES.

regret is scariest of all

This is interesting because Facebook keeps asking me to share milestones on my Pragmatic Palmist page. It seems to increase something in that land. My worth? My value as a business owner? My ability to stand out? Who really knows?!

Still, the “enter a milestone” request got me thinking and then I recognized that it was 2004 that started me on this hand reading journey. That’s a DECADE.  I like the sound of that. It makes me feel stable and secure and proves to those who say otherwise, “I CAN stick with something for the long haul.” (next major milestone? a decade and more with my love)

I can’t remember what I had for breakfast on Monday (did I have breakfast on Monday?) but I can remember the beginning of my hand analysis certification process as though  it happened this morning.

To commemorate this milestone, here are 10 things I’ve learned about business, hands, life and love in the past 10 years:

  1. If you’re not happy, nothing outside of you is going to make you happy. I first had my hands read because I thought it would be a magic button that would miraculously solve all my inner turmoil and angsty hand-wringing. It didn’t.
  2. Stretching is awesome, jumping off the cliff in an attempt to start from square one sucks. I know, I know. There’s some whimsical belief that if you leap the net will appear, and while I really like that image it isn’t the way it worked for me. (yes, I hear your metaphysicians – “maybe I didn’t believe in myself enough!”)  Here’s the deal, I asked for a divorce, met a totally unstable new boyfriend, took all my cash and bought an overpriced condo instead of paying back a crap-ton of debt and sold the business that was the source of my income – all within the span of 3 months. That was a lot of plates spinning and to be honest, I’m not sure there are enough nets on the planet! I learned my lesson that all or nothing is not really the only way to begin your best life.
  3. Being spiritual isn’t the point, being present is. You see I thought a spiritual teacher had to be all kinds of holy (and obviously poor) and always good and compassionate. That’s been impossible for me and now that I think about it, a pretty ego-driven belief. All that spiritual do-goodery was getting exhausting. When I chose to simply slow down and be present, the life I lead became infinitely more enjoyable.
  4. Relationships are paramount. You’ve heard t hat adage that says you somehow become the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with? It’s true. Most times this is spouted as the reason for forming a business mastermind – with rich people.  And I like being rich (more on that in #5) but I like having high caliber people around even more. In 10 years I’ve  had the complete joy and surprise of meeting and cultivating friendships with men and women who, by their very presence, help me grow- spiritually, mentally and financially. I’ve also watched some relationships fade away because I no longer needed the drama. Making relationships central to my life has been a life saver.
  5. Money is not the enemy. I have no idea when or why I decided to remove money from my life like a metastasizing cancer, but I’m glad I figured out that it was ME, not money that was the issue. I had one of the most eye-opening opportunities to love money in my life. I’m glad I accepted the challenge, but I wish for you to never be in that position. As a result I’m as passionate about my relationship with money as I am with people.
  6. If you’re afraid, keep going. Whenever I’ve been afraid (and good gosh ‘coming out’ to the world as a hand reader is still scary sometimes) I go within and ask for some higher wisdom to find the Love. You can’t be afraid and feel love at the same time. So I give myself permission to love my way through to the other side of fear.
  7. Dance. Now, if you’ve EVER seen me dance you’ll have a flashback to the Seinfeld episode where Elaine goes nuts on the dance floor. I feel pretty certain that Mr. Seinfeld had a hidden camera on my life to come up with that particular riff. And he made Julia Louis-Dreyfuss watch it a few hundred times to get the dance exactly right. This simple fact about me used to MORTIFY me and then make me angry when others laughed at my dancing. So I stopped dancing. And the only person who suffered was ME. Now I dance and laugh and laugh and dance and love the fact that my body can move in all those wacky ways. The more I’m me, the more free I am to do good work in the world. So turn on the music!
  8. Screw moderation. Everything in moderation? Except moderation. I can see that working for things that aren’t that great for me – like wine or french fries, but when it comes to things I love and have passion for? No way. I am passionate about reading hands. I’m passionate about building relationships. I’m passionate about helping people reach their highest and best good and dang I’m passionate about learning new things. Why in heaven’s name would I want to moderate any of that?! I can’t have too much learning or hand reading or relationship love. Ever.
  9. Love your body. No matter  what it looks like, no matter if you cannot seem to get into the Wheel in yoga or do a headstand or Crow pose. No matter if you have two left feet on the dance floor! Celebrate your body in all it’s wonder, listen to it, nourish it, cherish it for every last thing it does today. I can’t do any work in the world without it and while I know that I, as a soul, am eternal, I am so unabashedly proud of the body I have today – all nearly 50 years of it!
  10. Love. It’s taken me ten years of introspection, deep conversation, study and more to realize what LOVE really is. It is so much bigger than me and so much more than songs and poems and romance (all good stuff though). Whenever I’m in doubt, think I cannot do something, am freaking scared of going another day trying to do this thing called life, I reflect on LOVE.

Ten years – it’s been the best  decade yet!

 

The Auto-Immune Entrepreneur

Before I was diagnosed with an Auto-Immune disease I was one of those hard-charging Americans who thought that AI diseases were BS excuses made up in some whiny, over-privileged minds who wanted to get out of the hard-work necessary to be a success in the world.

Sadly, even after I was diagnosed I still held that belief.

With that belief and my diagnosis I decided to work harder so I could heal myself faster and get back to the business of running a business.  I really thought it was a case of mind over matter, and that if I could simply dig in and clear out whatever was wrong in my mind then the matter of my health would take care of itself.

So, how’d that work for me?

Not well.  At all.

Simply powering through and meditating and immersing myself in oils and supplements and books about diet changes and envisioning good health weren’t enough.

More than 5 years spanned the time from from first overt symptoms (I’m sure there were sporadic symptoms in the decades prior) to my first, somewhat erroneous diagnosis.

Three more  years passed before I arrived here, today.

I’d like to take you through the journey with me and share some of what I’ve learned – about healing and about running a business while living with a new “normal.”  It’s not all good, and not all bad.  And I don’t purport to have answers for anyone else, but I have some ideas and suggestions that may help you along the way.

Let me know what you most want to read/talk about when it comes to navigating your new normal.  Whether you’re newly diagnosed or a veteran – you have something to share and I can’t wait to learn and share with you!
