Multiple Streams

I am a multi-faceted multi-tasker, like many who are reading this article. I call myself a professional hyphenate:  Writer-speaker-social worker- minister-radio host-social worker-therapist-addictions counselor- BLISS coach-editor-author-reiki master-PR Goddess (and the list is growing). I used to say that I would ‘patchwork together’ my sources of income so I could stay afloat. When I think about a patchwork quilt, what comes to mind is a lovely blanket with which I can wrap myself, comprised of a multitude of bits and pieces lovingly stitched together. The flip side of it though is the idea that they are also ‘scraps’ of material. That part runs counter to what I want to believe is so about my work.

Instead, I have come to think of the concept of ‘multiple streams of income’ that flow gracefully into my life. What if you could visualize that for yourself? In my mind, I see a trickling body of water, moving through a verdant landscape with wildflowers waving on a brilliantly grassy shore, fed by the richness of the liquid love. As I sit on the earth, I dip my feet in the water and splash about. I scoop up handfuls of it and toss it in the air and lift my face toward the falling drops; laughing as it drenches me. Could I also envision money that way?  I do that often and welcome you to do it too.

Rev. Ike who was a charismatic and iconic preacher and died a few years ago would say that

“You can come to the Ocean with a teaspoon, a bucket, or a tractor trailer! The Ocean doesn’t care! The Ocean just wants to outflow!”  Are you open to being in the flow?

Clothes Make The Man
As I was speaking with a client today, we were discussing ways that people learn who they are and how they re-create themselves when major life changes occur. I remembered a scene from one of my favorite films:  Joe vs. the Volcano. Tom Hanks plays Joe Banks who  has a dreary, gray life, with pre

Changing Your Mind About God
I was listening to an  NPR interview today with author Scott Chesire whose initial book  is called High As the Horses’ Bridles, which is a reference to an image connected with Armageddon. It is a novel, but in part, is based on his own experience as a Jehovah's Witness. In his conversation
