We’re all totally flawed and broken.

Wounded, wrong and totally awesome.

Trying to be Perfect

I wasted a lot of time trying to be perfect. But the definitions and requirements of perfect changed depending on who was looking.

I was always failing someone’s test, so I stopped playing.

I gave up trying to be… anything for others, and started looking to see what I could be for myself.

What I found was a deeply flawed and broken human being. But that was okay… Because we all are.

And the more I became gentle and patient and forgiving of my own failures and imperfections – the more I could feel that towards others.

(and don’t think for a second that I can do this 100% of the time… or even 50% of the time – it’s still a constant reminder and a struggle to be patient and forgiving and gentle with myself and others…)

I don’t care how perfect someone looks or acts or appears to be – I guarantee… we are all flawed and broken. Every last one of us. It’s a wonderful, universal truth.

The Myth of Completion

We’re never going to get to ‘done’.
We’re never going to be finished and perfect.

I used to think that as soon as I healed all my crap I could start living the life I always wanted… but it doesn’t just ‘stop’ and then everything’s AMAZING.

The healing and the learning and the failing and the mistakes and the trying again… IS the life.

It took me the first half of my life to get that. It took me the first half of my life to see the perfect amazingness of that.

Now I get to LIVE the second half knowing that we’re all crazy and f*cked up and beautifully perfect in our chaos.

Ahhhh…. freedom.

In this part we dig more into more of the social aspects of what this means for us as human beings and how we can start using this knowledge to start getting the best out of life and hopefully influencing others and situations to be more harmonious for the whole.

Today we talk with Drew Brophy about quantum physics, art, sacred geometry, the galactic plane, resonance and the connectedness of all things.

Here we go a bit off the rails and talk about Drew’s interest in sacred geometry, physics and ancient civilizations.

Today I’m talking to Sherri Colasso, a psychic artist. We talk about Sherri’s transition from regular day job to trusting in her gifts. We learn about how she uses art and sight to help her clients move through difficult times in their lives.

There is no excuse for not being educated about the people who live in our own country. Adhering blindly to the homogeneous world view that we were fed growing up is not even trying to grow and evolve. Diversity is what peace on Earth looks like.

Buy Tarot in the Cards while it’s on sale! Don’t be a sucker and pay full price like me – get it ON SALE.

My life is far from bad – but I wanted to share how shame comes up for me in this life around body image.

Today I paint a sacred pine tree that lights up the whole world.

These stories are on repeat – there are major shared elements. I think Joseph Campbell said there are only 3 stories in the world – it’s just the details that change.
