Tracy ~ A Vision Board Story

_mg_3250-640x427 In late 2008 I created a different kind of Vision Board.  It was a very specific board created for a very specific outcome.  It was all about the birth of my 2nd child, the one I was carrying at the time.  I filled the board with pictures of all that I desired the second time around.  Sleeping babies and mothers, happy babies and mothers, healthy babies and mothers, and more importantly, positive affirmations and messages about the natural birth I so desired. I even included the name of the doctor, my doulas and the desired due date.

I created this board to heal from my first birth.  The birth of my son, my first born, shook me to the core.  Read about his Grand Entrance here.

I was a prime candidate, they said, for uterine rupture if I attempted a natural birth.  The doctors, the data, the caring friends and family, all urged me to schedule another c-section.  I took all of these facts and listened to the Truth inside of me.  Despite my fear, I did it anyway.  I listened to the still, small voice inside of me, created a Vision Board and studied it intently for months.  Morning, noon and night until the day came - January 14, 2009.

My baby girl was born naturally, drug free, in 4 hours from first contraction to birth.  It was beautiful, healing and empowering.  I owe it all to my Vision Board, my doulas and my husband who believed I could.  xo

Discover. Empower. Balance.

Be Well,

Tracy

Are You Ready?

What if you had a magic wand and all of your dreams came true…today?  Would you be ready?

  • The dream partner
  • The dream business
  • The dream home

What if they were already here?  Would you be ready to open the door and let them in?

Many of us, when we even dare to dream, forget this very important piece.  In order to get what we want in life, we have to make the space for it.  Make it welcome in our lives.

There are 3 keys to creating the life of your dreams:

  • Decide - become crystal clear on what you desire in order to make it happen.
  • Believe – have undying faith that what you desire is already yours.
  • Act – take a step, every day, in the direction of your dream.

Ask this question.  What can I do today with what I have?

If you desire a dream home, for example, you might:

  • Find a real estate agent
  • Get pre-approved for a mortgage
  • Put your present home on the market

Dreaming your dream home doesn’t get you the keys.

Take a step.  Get ready.  Make it welcome.

Discover. Empower. Balance.

Shine Brightly,

Tracy

A Dolphin Inspires

lloyd-luecke-bottlenose-dolphin-dreamstime-stock-photos-640x427 I have always had an affinity for dolphin.  I look for them as I walk the beach, fly over the water, cruise out to the deep sea.  8 out of 10 times I see them on my sacred walks on the beach.  This may be because I am an avid beach walker or because I am always looking.  I’m not sure but I am grateful every time.

Years ago I watched a dolphin breach 15-16 feet out of the water.  No one was around to see this but me.  To this day, I feel that dolphin was giving me a private show, saying hello and a thank you for being there.

A few years ago we watched the movie A Dolphin Tale, about a dolphin named Winter with a prosthetic tail.  I knew I had to meet her so I took my family to the Clearwater Marine Aquarium in Clearwater, FL over spring break to do just that.

Winter’s is a story of sheer willpower, determination and perseverance.  She is alive today because she didn’t know that her chances of survival were near impossible, that a dolphin can’t survive without a tail.  All she knew was the love, dedication and faith of the humans who cared for her.  And, not only did she survive, she thrives.  She touches the hearts and souls of humans daily.

What would you love?

What if you didn’t think it was impossible?

What would you do?

What if you kept a corner of your mind open to the possibility?

Would you live your life differently?

 

Discover. Empower. Balance.

Wishing you well,

Tracy
