Beach Walk 774 – Releasing Resistance

Last chance to get unstuck in 2012! Have no fear when things are really going great. Let those bubbles out of the basement so they can wander off and pop free!

Letting go of old emotions does not have to be a tortuous heavy process! Just think of them as bubbles in the basement wanting to rise up and fly free. Attach no strings to them – just open the door and let them go. No need fear when things are going too good! That is when you are strong and able to move mountains, even those ones your small self may have created out of molehills. Please add your comment below or discuss this on Facebook!

As I share the ever-developing “Beach Walks Philosophy,” one of the key goals is to unplug from so many old, rote beliefs that in fact rob us of being happy in the here and now. It has been a turbulent year – I am focusing on all the positive change that has resulted, in such swift and dramatic ways! Love to you all and see you in 2013.

Beach Walks #765 – Folding In and Out

Watch the waves on South Maui as they fold in and out – a metaphor to stay in the flow in 2012 even if life starts coming at us sideways. These waves are doing just that and it so gorgeous! Watch the video, then keep reading…

Filmed on the iPhone, edited on the iPad – brought to you by “The Better Something Than Nothing Department!” Wishing you a wonderful new year and another chance to live the life you dream of living, right here right now.

Hawaiian word:
Pelu: to fold, turn over and under, to bend

Beach Walk 759 – Flowing the Texas Rapids

I am in Austin, Texas for a program with Lola Jones and we went to Barton Creek for a lunch break. It was a perfect opportunity to remember the rocks in the river are part of the fun! I am sure you’ll get the metaphor.

Many of you viewers know I took a 5-day silent retreat with Lola Jones last year and that in addition to all the technology and social media training and consulting I do, I also give Divine Openings. I was here in Austin to gain some more experience and knew that you Beach Walks viewers would appreciate some flow analogies, some water footage, and of course a few pups! (We were joined by Honey and Sophie on the hike.)

Beach Walk 698 – Circle of Pressure, Opportunity

I was thinking about the old Sufi tale about the man and his son, and their changing fortunes/misfortunes, as seen across the span of time. Right now with Podcamp, we have a sponsor Road Runner, who offered us 300 30-second TV spots. Wow, that is an incredible opportunity. Of course, it is also pressure. We’ve never made a TV commercial before, and had to do this in the span of about 2 weeks. We assembled the “actors” via a Twitter call instead of a casting call, (as described by my friend and participant Neenz)and filmed on location in the Hawaii Convention Center. Shane did his magic on the graphics, and though homemade to be sure, we love it and hope it helps us spread the word about this free event to learn about new media and the social web.

All this led up to my next level of understanding about “flow.” It is not so much about smooth, which is my first thought, but about movement. Staying in motion without getting stuck on any particular detail or challenge. Water, the original flow, is regularly both calm and turbulent now isn’t it?

Hawaiian Word:
Au: movement

Beach Walk 682 – Go With The Flow

As you know I have these dialogs in my head. Sometimes when I am stressed a voice says “just go with the flow.” But another voice says, “No! That is too passive!” Today I actually figured out the confusion in this and am happy to share it with you, in case it helps.

Hawaiian Word:
Holo: _to flow, as in water_
Hoʻokele: _navigate_
