In Stephanie's 8 week online manifestation class starting Monday, 10/18/21, we will go through each one of the 8 steps of manifestation.
Manifestation, or creation, is always happening! When we understand this, we begin to create consciously...instead of unconsciously.
We get clear and specific. Meaning, instead of asking for a "relationship", we ask for a healthy, engaging, loving, kind...partner.
We start to align inner and outer. It's a beautiful, fun, and powerful process that works.
I have done it over and over which is why I am thrilled to share this program I developed.

"It's in relationship we heal...when we have the courage to...cause it takes lots of courage to create peace. It's worth it." -Stephanie :)
Previously I have written about transformation and Shamanism.
Today I want to revisit relationship success...and in some cases "pain".
Relationships are one of my favorite topics. They have posed the greatest challenges for me, and have also been the most gratifying part of my life. Hmmm...a paradox? Yes! I love a good puzzle :)
Note: Above picture was taken last month on my birthday with sis, mom, and husband. These are examples of relationships I have advocated for, been insanely challenged by, healed, and totally appreciate today.
Because of this, I want to help you heal your relationships!!! It's so darn worth it.
When I say heal, we always have 3 options: accept, change, leave.
Think about it:
1. At some point or another, everything we do involves others...relationships of some type, at some depth, for some period of time. You may erroneously fantasize you can do it all alone, forever. I respectfully disagree.
2. Our ability to have good (peaceful, positive, prosperous, playful, present) relationships is a foundation for our well-being. I talk about this in more detail in my book Reclaiming Joy.
3. Relationships show us where we are on our spiritual path and can become our life long spiritual practice, aka our greatest teacher.
Perhaps at some points in your life, relationships caused so much pain, you felt you "didn't" want to engage. Understandable, yet not sustainable.
Maybe you experienced feeling like relationships were more trouble than they were worth. Makes sense.
As humans we don't like "pain".
And yet, pain, suffering, and trauma is how most of us learn.
By learn I mean, "wake up".
Why do we continue to do this to our self?
Why are we so resistant to waking up?
The cool thing is, we can choose to awaken.
We can choose to stop having to experience so much pain!!!
By awaken I mean we choose to become more conscious, aka, deal with our stuff!!!
As you may have experienced, if we don't deal with our stuff...life has a funny way of dealing with it for us.
And when life deals with it for us, it is often more painful than necessary. Something big has to happen to get our attention and then we act like something happened to us...when in reality, we simply have chosen to stay asleep at the wheel of our life.
Perhaps this sounds harsh.
Well, I am here to provoke your truth, and living your best self. That said, this isn't about right and wrong...good or bad.... It's not about judging ourselves and others and playing in that triangle of dis-empowerment I have spoken about --- victim, rescuer, perpetrator.
Part of awakening means we understand, through personal experience (knowing) a natural human tendency to want to avoid pain at all costs, thinking it will go away. The flaw in this line of thought is...whatever we avoid, will ultimately surface. You know the line, "whatever we resist, persists".
What to do?
In addition to getting serious about a daily meditation practice to focus the mind and center the emotional body--- start paying attention to your self talk and therefore your beliefs about relationships. It's only through awareness that we can transform.
Ask yourself questions:
Are relationships painful?
Are relationships joyful?
Depends on person, situation, what you want?
Am I attached, expecting, judging?
Working with people on healing relationships both on the meditation cushion and in shamanic energy sessions is one of my all time passions.
At some point, hopefully not on our deathbed, we realize that we all need people, it's no so serious, and it doesn't need to be so darn painful...if we are willing to commit to awakening.
I see you. You matter.
Mindset Challenge: Get Crafty & You Will
"If you hear a voice within you saying I am not a painter, by all means, paint, and that voice will be silenced."-Van Gogh
One of the best ways I know how to grow (think get unstuck) is by doing the exact things I say I "can't".
"I can't" feels disempowering, right? "I can" is much better!
There's been many times I have thought "I can't" over the years. Examples include things like owning a brick & mortar business to running - and lots of relationship stuff too. Painting was a big "I can't"!
When BWS temporarily closed last year during the pandemic, I got to painting to keep sane, and empowered.
Thankfully there is paint by number!
Pictured above is the result. Brings me such joy.
What's your "I can't"?
GO for it! BE creative and crafty in the "how".
Your Happiness by Stephanie
"The greatest adventure you can have is to live the life of your dreams." - Oprah
Who's in charge of your happiness? You are!
Why do I say this?
I've dedicated my life to learning how to live each day in the present according to my highest purpose. I've been learning myself in order to teach others. After all...when we teach, we learn twice!
Why am I writing again about happiness?
One of the greatest lessons I've learned while studying with Eckhart Tolle is that life isn't here to make us happy. What!!! Exhale. Life is here to make us awaken.
What does that mean?
If happiness is our goal, we will often find ourselves unhappy. As we know, life gives us challenges. One minute all is well...the next minute not so much. And our emotional state takes the hit each time.
When things are going well, we attach. When things aren't going so well, we detach. Hence the practices of non-attachment we speak of in yoga, shamanism, meditation and other spiritual paths to help us stay in balance.
What I have learned, continue to practice, and want to share is that when our focus is on "awakening", meaning-- waking up to who we are, what we want, and why we are here...a funny thing happens.
We actually end up experiencing more more happiness!!!
Because we learn how to live a meaningful life, a life that is aligned with what matters most to us, not someone else or some ideal.
Quite simply, we start taking action on the things that make us "happy" on the inside - things that bring us joy, peace, love. Things that give us a sense we are living a "meaningful" life.
How each of us defines a "meaningful" life varies across time, space, personality, etc.
As an example, have you ever known a person who is living their life to the fullest by doing only the things that bring them joy? Maybe these people irritate you? It seems so selfish of them!!! Ahhh... or not. Maybe taking care of our own needs is the greatest act of self love we can experience. Because when we love ourselves, we are able to love others.
So, while we may have moments of happy/unhappy in our life as challenges arise, when we fully commit to awakening, we are clear on our purpose even when the path is uncertain. We gain tools to weather the storms. In the end, we realize it's our choice to be happy and live the life of our dreams...or not.
I support you!
