When the Words Just Won't Come!

I'm currently working on my new website that will soon be launched.  In this process I've had to work on the wording and basically put on one page what my message to the world is and what I want to offer. Easier said than done.  As I woke up this morning, I reached out to the Universe for more clarity.  How do I boil down my message in just a few short sentences but with a big impact?  What will my elevator speech look like? I realized that if I stop long enough and let go of the worry of what to write, that perhaps it will just naturally come to me.  That's where I am turning to writing this blog for help. Let's get those words up and out so that I can have that clarity at the end to send to the web designer.  Let's see what I want my legacy to be.

The day started with messages coming through, friends that called and a child who refuses to get out of his pajamas.  The usual MO for that is that I worry about that.  Why isn't he wanting to come out of his room?  Is my kid just stinking lazy?  Today I decided to just let it go.  I'm going to go with the flow and see what he does with it and what I might do with it.  So far it's finding me in my office and him out in the kitchen screaming and yelling at his  Minecraft game.  Hmmm, how is this helping?  How it's helping is that I have let go of my agenda for the day and we both seem to be relaxing into what our vision of the day is.  I'm not putting my agenda on him and he has a smile on his face.  One day of Minecraft will not kill him.  Maybe the opposite will happen.  Perhaps he will see how tired and cranky he will get after a full day on the screens.

So in getting back to my task at hand, I'm realizing that perhaps I don't need that full clarity and final wording.  I may just have a work-in-progress here.  I want to go out and spread my message to folks that I have been through some big changes and shifts in the last year or so, and I survived.  I want to help folks who think they are too old, or that they can't take time away from their kids right now, or that self-care is selfish, etc. etc.  I want to let them know that the answer is inside them and not outside in a pill, book etc.  Those can sometimes help but the ultimate answer is inside of you.  If you aren't willing to do the work, then the changes you might aspire too just aren't going to come.  If you look to someone else to do that work for you, guess what?  It's going to be on their terms.  All it takes is a few small steps a day, but just keep moving.

I will provide my clients with the tools to find that answer for themselves.  I'll keep them on the path of momentum to keep heading towards their best selves.  I've had the immense gift of having folks in my life lately that are doing the same for me. I want to pay that forward.  We can spend a lot of time thinking up excuses for not doing the work. The bottom line goes back to the old saying, if you want to make changes, you have to change your way of thinking, being and doing.  Not sure if those are the exact words, but you get my drift.

I look forward to what this year brings for me. I also look forward to connecting with those folks who are ready to make that next step.  If you are ready to take your next step, please feel free to send an email to pwalker2650@gmail.com.

Happy 2017 - Let's Rock This!

Happy 2017!!  This year is going to rock.  I started out the year with a bang.  I went into hibernation mode over the weekend and was able to thoroughly clean my house, set up some manifestations for this upcoming year, and do some self-care to start the New Year off in the right the direction.  I had a positive feeling about this year and I still do but....  I sit here at my desk after my son finally got back to school after long breaks and a bonus snow day.  I am sitting at my computer and wondering how to get started and what's the best thing to do to get my manifestations rolling. I was feeling very ungrounded and decided to reach out to a friend.  He told me to go back to my sequence.. Do some grounding, cut cords and take a salt bath.  Whenever you are feeling like the world is spinning out of control, it's awesome to know that you can have these simple tools to plug back into and feel safe, comforted and supported.

I was guided this past New Year to not go back and review my 2016.  It's giving energy to something that has past.  It's better to step into the exciting possibilities of what you can become in the 2017.  I love this.  It's a far more uplifting feeling than going back over things that happened.  Yes, I am grateful for all of the good shifts but why give energy to those things that may not have been so uplifting?  This is a whole new perspective and one that gives me much joy.  Even as I sit here and type this, I'm feeling like the energetic shift into the future has really begun.

As I prepare to become my best self, I'm preparing some things to have others join me for their next steps.  These will include coaching programs, Meet-ups, videos, re-branding and several other yummy ingredients.  I would love for you to join me on this journey.  If you are interested, please feel free to contact me @ pwalker2650.com.

"I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You're doing things you've never done before, and more importantly, you're doing something." - Neil Gaiman

Where Are You Quitting on Yourself?

Tis the season to be jolly, well you know the rest.  It's been a busy one for sure.  In the midst of it all, I am doing my best to continue the momentum I have built up this year.  It's easy to use the excuse of the holidays to slow down for the last two weeks of the year.  In my honest opinion, this is the best time of year to actually speed up and set yourself up for a rocking 2017. With this theme in mind, I'm noticing a lot of people quitting on themselves.  I've been really guilty of this myself this past year, and am doing my best to put into practice things that make me step out of that and forge on. What do I mean by quitting on yourself? Where do you stop yourself?  Where are you suddenly in the flow and things are going great and boom, you throw something in your own path?  This something could be anything from self-doubt and fear to stopping what you are doing so that the flow also stops.

I gave an example the other day of when I really wanted to crawl back under my warm covers instead of getting to the computer and making some new prospects.  It was so hard, especially since I work out of my house. This became the theme of the day because it got me really noticing where others are doing this as well.  The proverbial stay under the covers so I don't have to put my gifts out into the world scenario.  I'm guilty of this in the past as well.

Listen, I know it's the easy thing to do.  When we are doing energetic, physical and emotional shifts, it feels foreign.  It can also feel fearful, painful, and any other "ful" that you can think of.  It's those of us that push through the can'ts, shouldn'ts, etc. that will realize the most gain.

You ask how I put things into place to stop myself from quitting on myself.  What is my practice?  Everyday I get up and sit quietly with 12 minutes ticking down on my clock.  I tune in to Source, get quiet and really listen to what my next steps will be.  I also ask myself if something I am about to do is what is best for my higher self.  I ask if it will take me to my next right place.  If the answer is no, you will most likely feel it in your body.

Back to the holidays, I get it, it's busy, exhausting and can be downright stressful. Here's the thing. If you are working on yourself and staying in your flow during this time of year, guess what, I bet the holiday season will be less stressful and can even be downright fun.  Once your body and soul are humming with your divine purpose, the rest of your world will magically fall into place.

A Soul's Legacy of Love

In honor of the third anniversary of the passing of Paul Walker, I'm reposting this!! I woke up this morning to the news that Furious 7, the latest in the Fast and Furious movie franchise, had topped 1.15 billion in ticket sales.  It has had the #1 spot at the box office for three weeks running and it is now the seventh biggest earning movie of all time.  An amazing feat that some are calling the legacy of Paul Walker.

My first for today is that I am going to find my voice [something that has taken me a long time to do] and go up against some folks who are stating that Paul Walker's legacy is that he left this world by having a billion dollar movie.  I know it definitely is part of his legacy, but as I have stated in a previous blog post, the legacy goes beyond so much more than that.

Over the weekend I had an awesome girl's day with a soul sister of mine.  She excitedly asked me how my trip to LA went for the Furious 7 premier (reference Blog Post from 4/9).  Can I tell you how nice that was?  Someone made a point to ask me about one of the highlights of my year.  Heidi, a hug to you for putting that out there.  Again, I cannot tell you how much that meant to me.

I was asked to describe the feeling of being at the movie premier.  This lead me to writing this blog post.  The question brought me back to what I was feeling on that exact night.  While I was standing amongst so many people from so many walks of life, I realized that what Paul Walker's legacy exemplified was sitting right there in that theater on this warm April night.

On April 1st hundreds of people gathered to celebrate not only the release of his last film, but also to celebrate the person that Paul was.  I won't pretend to know him because I had never met him before his untimely death.  To be honest, before his passing, I had never seen any of his films or been familiar with him as an actor.  I am now getting a really good picture of what he truly must have been like upon meeting some folks who were in his "circle".

For that one night, I felt like all was right with the world.  All was right with the world because I felt such true and utter love.  I felt and saw what his family meant to him and what he meant to his family.  His family was not just biological but situational.  His friends and his fans all gathered together in one spot.  All the love poured out and for one night everyone focused their love on one thing - Paul.  How cool that so much energy was so big in one place.  I saw the effects of what everyone focusing love, instead of say hate or anger, had on a crowd and had on the world.

Getting back to that amazing billion dollar mark, here are my thoughts.  I think that for this small moment in time, people around the world are clamoring to get that same great feeling that I did that night in Hollywood.  I see folks leave the movie theater (having seen it again just this past weekend) with a look on their faces of pure and utter love.  Everyone is leaving the theater in a peaceful, yet emotional state.  Perhaps it is giving them all the impetus to reach out and share their love with someone else.  We never know when our time, or that of a loved one, will come to an end.

So, in closing, Paul, I think that your legacy reaches more than just the box office numbers.  I truly believe that your legacy is one of joining the world together no matter what their race, ethnic, financial, gender or any other group may be.  No matter where someone comes from, you have proven that we can all get along together as long as you throw in that component of love.

Until my next adventure,

P.A. Walker

Back Away From the Distractions!

I've been guilty lately of letting distractions take hold of my every day life.  What I mean by this is, spending my time on things that do not take me towards my greatest good.  I have had several days last week filled with phone calls with friends and family members, lunch with others, going for an oil change in the middle of the day, etc.  This then escalated into me making judgements about others, thinking they weren't doing things the right way and so on and so on. Now don't get me wrong.  Having a long phone call with a friend is a wonderful thing to do.  It's when I do it several mornings out of the week with several different friends that it starts to really take away from my work. My soul's mission here on earth is to help folks and to get my word out there.  I can help folks while having coffee but at some point, I should think about giving them the tools to help themselves.

Once I realized where I was throwing distraction into my life, I decided to sit back and see where others were doing it and if I was guilty of doing the same thing.  Bingo!  I have a dear friend who is veering off track with her life goals.  She is spending a lot of time worrying about what others in her life are doing.  Yes, she is not staying in her own lane.  Where am I doing that, I thought?  I was definitely doing that.  It was as if I woke up this morning and the light went on.  It's time to ask myself the simple question as these distractions come up, "Is this in my higher good?". Is the sitting around worrying what others are doing for my highest good?  NO.....  Is letting others dump their stuff on me for my highest good?  NO....

I won't fully stay away from phone calls  with my friends.  They are dear to me.  I love that they are in my life.  I will take my calendar and make sure that I get my work done and the things that are moving me toward my greatest good done.  Once I do this, then I'm happy to sit down and see how the rest of the world is doing.  If I don't get my social time, I start to really miss people and places.

Where can you "clean" up your time?  Are you spending a lot of time thinking about how others can do it better?  Is there some way for you to turn that around and see where it's mirroring something in your life?  Are you giving away a lot of your time that could be used to work on your goals?  It might be time to start looking inward and see where you can make some changes!!

Rock Your Life!

There's been a lot of sad stuff going on here in Park City this past month.  The deaths of two 8th graders due to suspected drug overdoses have sent the town into a whirlwind.  The energy feels heavy and sad.  I'm doing my best to continue on a high vibration while still offering kind words to those in need.  These issues brought up a thought in my mind this week that has kind of been a continuation of something I have been experiencing the last month or so. I just sold my townhouse and moved into a rental for awhile until the next steps of our lives are figured out.  It's a lot of change, a lot of sadness but for me, mostly hope that life will continue on in a thriving manner.  We get just one life to live and I want to make mine really count.  By doing so, I feel as if I am providing a good role model for my son who is 11. The death of these two young boys has been a learning experience for the school-aged and parents alike.  It's given us lessons of paying attention to our youth more, making sure they don't make some bad judgements and letting our kids know that life can turn on a dime.

One of the themes that has popped up is one of gossip, judgement, rumors, story telling etc.  It started for me when I decided to put my house on the market.  I saw a lot of people avoiding me, asking others about my business and not just coming to me for the answers.  I don't bite people.  If you want to know what is going on, just come to me.  If you are afraid, then it's probably none of your business anyway.  I'm sorry, but my life is probably not as entertaining as you are making it out to be.  I taught my son that if someone is discussing your business behind your back, then they probably are not paying enough attention to the business that is right in front of them.

This brings me back to the stories of this week.  The police have told us that they don't have a reason for the deaths as of this writing, however, the stories are running rampant throughout my town.  It's a small town, I get it.  However, until we know exactly what happened, let's spend that energy helping the survivors and snuggling our own kids more at night.

To get off my soapbox now, my messages for this blog post are, life is short, it's time to rock it!! Rock your next day, your next year, your next decade.  We have but one beautiful life.  I"m going to do my best to make mine count and leave behind a legacy that I could be proud of.

What John F. Kennedy Jr. Taught Me About Life!

Happy September.  It's been awhile since I have posted, but life has been busy.  What you are about to see is the changing of the tone of this blog.  I've finished up my goal of doing my 50 for a Year.  It's turned my life around.  I'm very, very close to the publication of my new book, "Oh Honey, I'm Just Getting Started...  Consciously Create Your Next Decade".  This is opening up avenues to me that I never thought possible.  I'm booking some speaking gigs, launching coaching programs and enjoying the "new me".  If you asked me a year or so ago if I would be writing a book and fulfilling my Divine Purpose, I would have looked at you with crossed eyes.  I'm here to tell you that today, I'm stepping into that Divine Purpose.  So hang on tight as I explain the day that I had yesterday. A beautiful friend of mine, who just happens to be a shaman, decided that she could assist me in figuring out why my right foot has been hurting for over two months.  I broke my foot last year.  It healed up but started to hurt me again this summer.  I've tried everything from chiropractic, to acupuncture to energy healing.  So this particular day, I decided to ask my friend to release some energy in my foot and see if that would help.  Little did I know that it would be an adventure that I hadn't planned for.

As I was lying on the table, my friend had me down deep in relaxation mode.  In an instant, I started to feel as if I were under water. I told her that I was feeling "murky".  It felt like my current life situation at the moment.  As she was working on me, I started to have a very clear vision of John F. Kennedy Jr. who died in a plane crash way too young. It was as if he was there with me in the water and at some point started to push me towards the top. I literally felt like I was in the water looking up through a layer of water.  It was something I have never felt before.  As I was experiencing this, I had a true feeling that he was trying to give me a message of "Life is too short.  Get out there and live your true purpose.".  "It's too late for me, but you still have time to live your best life ever.".  Wow!  What a lesson and what a message.

Since this particular session, I've been trying to put into play what I "heard" that day.  I have been trying to figure out how to do this.  I don't doubt what I went through in that energy session.  I have been feeling more and more like the veil is getting thinner and that those that have passed come back around to help us on earth live our best lives! Hey, if John John tells me to get out there and live my best life ever, you can be sure that I am going to listen.

As my life moves forward into unknown waters, I am adapting the attitude of just let it flow.  Don't get too caught up in details, or try and control the outcome of things.  The Universe is there to back me up and I know I have a "team" that is there for me.  There are some days where I don't trust this but always return to my beliefs.  I take some deep breaths and know that I have back-up.

As part of my life shifts, this blog will be re-named shortly.  There is a lot of exciting things coming down the turnpike for me.  Stay tuned!!

Heaven's Not Ready for You Yet!

I just finished watching a Super Soul Sunday on the OWN network.  Oprah Winfrey was interviewing comedian Tracy Morgan.  If you recall, Tracy survived a horrific car crash in 2014.  He was in a medically induced coma for 10 days, during which time he said he talked to his deceased father a few times.  His dad told him, "I'm just not ready for you yet!".  You may not be a believer in the spirit world, but I have had too many instances of things happening where I cannot not believe. After watching the interview with Tracy, I came away with several comments.  He seems still baffled by it all but grateful for the life that he still has.  He doesn't remember the accident but is certainly well aware of the outcome of it.  He said he is not mad at anyone, just very lucky to still be alive.  He treasures each day as the gift that it is.

Tracy talked about what a strong woman his wife was and still is during this whole process.  How would I act in a situation like this?  I'm hoping that I would have the fortitude to see it through to the conclusion.  However, this is not about that.  This is about the fact that your life can turn on a dime.  Tracy said that he was on his way home from a gig and next thing he knew, he was waking up in a hospital.  He doesn't remember the accident but became aware three weeks later that it claimed the life of his mentor and long time friend, Jimmy Mack.

I could tell you repeatedly that you are lucky to be alive.  Some will get it and others will take it for granted.  If one of us were in that situation, how would we react?  Tracy said that if it weren't for his wife and small daughter, he doesn't know if he could have ever pulled out of that coma.  That is a testament to his marriage and child.  Just the positive thought of seeing them both pulled him out of his downward turn.

I hope and pray that I never have to see what I would do in this situation.  This got me to thinking that I am stronger than I give myself credit for.  I've survived the sudden death of my dad and being the one who found him on the floor. I've survived the diagnosis of my mom with Alzheimer's and the almost ten year battle that she went through before she too passed away.  I've gone through more than most people I know and I am still standing and breathing.  I'm tapping into this to get me through my next chapter which will include a lot of changes, hard work and several different outcomes.  I'm happy to be alive, breathing and be at a crossroads in my life where I can basically choose where I want to live and how I will get there.  As I am typing this, I realize that I alone am responsible for my life and what I choose to make of it.  Sitting around down in the dumps could be one way to handle it, but I am making the choice to step up and run my life in a matter that not only my parents would be proud of, but one that more importantly I am proud of!

Every day takes lots of energy to get through certain things in my life.  I'm blessed to have a great tribe with which I can giggle, get hugs and caring advice.  I'm so, so grateful for this.  However, in the end, it's me that has to get it done.  I can make the choice to step up and come out of certain situations whole, intact and thriving.  This summer is all about shifts and learning new skills with which to move forward with these shifts.  I look forward to see what the fall of 2016 will hold for me!

It Really Is All About Me.....

It's all about me.  Yes, that's right.  That's what I said, it's all about me.  Now I'm going down the path that your brain just automatically went down. I'm talking about how I realized today how much I get in my own way.  I harbor anger against others that should be anger towards myself.  Someone very wise pointed that out to me today.  She said, all this anger you have towards others, what is really about?  It seems it was about how I have anger against myself.  Anger that I didn't make certain life choices, or I sat around and let others take care of me, or anger that I didn't set boundaries and let others take advantage of me.  It hurt so bad, my liver was actually glowing inside my body.  Ouch.  Sure way to come down with something life threatening. Now the next steps.  Now that I made that realization, where do I go from here?  How do I move on from that realization and move forward instead of sliding back into old habits?  If I slide into old habits, I will cause myself even more anger.  It's just now hitting me how much time and energy I spent focusing that anger on others and sitting around waiting until they changed, if they ever changed.  Phew.  That felt good.  That just felt like a weight lifted off my shoulders.  Funny how this all works.

Where do I go from here can be answered with a variety of ways.  The one I am relying on at the moment is quiet introspection.  Getting up early and meditating and asking, "Please show me the next steps to take.".  We all think that we need the final answer to the question instantly but I am coming to realize more and more that it truly is one step at a time.  Let me give you a for instance.   The past week we made the decision that it was time to sell our house.  The timing is just right as this will free us up to take the next right steps in life and to have some cash in the bank to pursue what we really want to do in life.  I leapt right into action with calls to agents etc.  However, I got the clear message that this might take some time but the outcome will be favorable.  I re-arranged and decided that a "soft" opening would take place.  What I mean by this is first tell some friends, then perhaps advertise on Facebook, etc.  This situation will take care of itself.

I've already had the inevitable, "Well, where are you going to go?".  For the first time in my life, I don't have the answer and I am feeling really calm about it.  I know I do need to take some steps to try and narrow it down and do some research, however, in the end it truly will flow as it should.  This is so a whole new way of thinking for me.

Today's message is just this:  it's time to go inward.  It's time to take the blame off of others and use that energy to work on your own "stuff".  It's amazing how liberating and powerful this can be.  I've already noticed a shift in my relationships around me because I am working on myself and staying in my own lane.

I'm No Longer the Life of the Party!

I used to be the first one out the door when someone had a party.  However, today I realized that hat didn't fit anymore.  My family left me home alone (woo hoo, did they hear the door slam on the way out?) tonight as they went to a gathering at a friend/old neighbor's house.  I made the conscious choice not to go.  I thought about it all day and then realized that the reason I was getting into a bad mood was because I had too much on my plate today and most days.  It is time to slim down my calendar and take better care of myself. I could have made the choice to go, but this week for some reason, I have been feeling an overwhelming energetic pull on me.  I have been steering away from conversations that pull me down such as politics, world and American events.  People look at me like I have three heads when I choose not to partake in these discussions.  My reason is, if I am not willing to step up and do something big about these topics, it's best to put my energies into something that will move myself forward.

Don't get me wrong.  I love the folks that would have been at this particular party, I just don't love the mood I am in right now.  It's best for me to stay home, continue on the path I am on, and use my time for my creative efforts.  If I were to have said yes to tonight, I would have ended up being in a far worse mood because I didn't stop to rest and do self-care when I knew that my body really needed it.  It's time to say yes, just to myself for today.  You know what?  That's perfectly okay!

I used to be that person that thought you had to say yes to everything.  Believe you me, I was a pro.  If I didn't go, so and so would be upset with me.  If I didn't participate, they may never ask me again.  I finally realized that this was pretty egotistical of me because you know what, they are all right with this.  They don't pay that much attention to whether or not I come to a party or not.  What I mean is, they are not keeping score because I still get invitations.  I also think that on some level, there are probably ten other people who upon hearing that I stayed home, secretly wished they were doing exactly what I was doing.  That's okay.  A Saturday night spent in your jammies reading a book, writing a blog or watching a show is awesome.

It's so, so important these days to do self-care.  If we run ourselves ragged, what good are we to others??  Not very much.  So use this as a hall pass on your next invitation that starts at 5:30 and you realize at 5:20 that you didn't even have the energy yet to get up and take a shower!  That was my hint that it was okay to stay home!

Until My Next Adventure,

Put Your Oxygen Mask on First!

I had an amazing break-through just this very morning.  It had been building up for a few days and finally materialized in one big, juicy collective breathe after breakfast.  It was the ever so simple, "Stay In Your Own Lane".  Now I know that I have brought this up on this blog before, but it showed up again this morning.  It reminded me to get back to a simple routine that needed to be done over and over again.  This healing process is a life-long experience.  Some people think it can be fixed with one phone call or one pill, but I am living proof that it is always evolving. By staying in my own lane, I take all the energy I would have ordinarily used to try and "help, fix or rescue" others and turn it back towards myself.  Some of you will know what I am talking about. I had a long conversation this morning with a friend of mine.  She is on a similar path albeit a few levels back.  I've been giving her some tips to use on her own journey.  She takes what she needs or wants to use at that particular time. Today she asked me to remind her about the simple steps again.  She keeps stepping into other's "stuff" over and over again.  She is realizing quicker and quicker how it sucks all her energy out and the other person usually doesn't appreciate or need to hear what she has to say. Needless to say, when I reminded her, it took me to a moment where I needed to hear those exact words this morning.  When we jump in to save the day, are we really saving the day?  In fact, what I ended our conversation with was "By trying to help people, are we more "not helping" them?"  She got what I meant, and I hope you do too.  Folks need to figure out their own journeys.  They may think they need help but when it comes right down to it, the answer is right there in front of them, they just want you to give them the answer and not search for it themselves.  When that Aha moment hit me this morning, the rest of my day was completely different.  When I had more energy to work on my own things, the day went a lot smoother.

There are just some of us humans who want to love on folks.  We want to fix, teach, rescue, etc.  It's our nature.  It takes a lot of work to get out of this pattern.  Sometimes the person you are "rescuing" tries to put even bigger hooks into you, but hold strong and remember at the end of the day, it's your health and well-being that are the most important.  As you hear on that airplane, "Put Your Oxygen Mask on First".  If you don't keep yourself whole, how can you help others??

When you say yes to others, make sure you're not saying no to yourself!!!

Finding Myself Through My Travels!

It's been a few weeks since I have made a blog post.  I was away for an extended road trip and was processing a lot of my stuff while in the car.  What do I mean by this?  I was doing a life examination and seeing where I could make some changes and what needed to go.  I'm back home and ready to rock it.  I had some huge Aha moments and some that threw me for a loop.  I highly recommend this process to anyone who feels stuck. It's a great way to get away and work on some of your "stuff". It's hard to go there, but if you want different results in your life, it's the way to do it.  I realized that you can't sit around and wait for others to change, you have to change your response to things. HappyPlace

Back in my "happy place" - Santa Barbara, Ca., June 2016

I'm a fan of Doreen Virtue (Google her if you aren't familiar, she's amazing!) on both Facebook and Instagram.  Doreen has some great posts just about everyday that always seem to hit me right in the head.  Today's was, "Stay out of the drama, even if for just one day!".  Wow, that's great.  I went out for a bike ride and decided to do it.  Guess what, it was amazing how many ways people tried to bring it to my handlebars.  I'll give you one example.  I had a beautiful monarch butterfly land on the front of my bike. They were all around.  I stopped to enjoy them.  A gentleman was walking by me.  I told him about the butterflies and hoped he would enjoy seeing them as well.  He looked at me and uttered, "Yeah, well this place is also filled with snakes!".  I looked at him and said, "I'm going to focus on the positive!".  That felt really good!  Butterflies vs. snakes, what will you choose?

I'm feeling really good about the future because I realized this past week that you shouldn't even go to the non-existent future.  Take one step at a time.  I was feeling overwhelmed because my book is going to be coming out here very soon.  Why was I not excited?  I was feeling overwhelmed because there is still a lot of steps between here and there.  This is when I realized to stop looking at the future, and to take it in small bites.  Case in point, make a list every day of three things (yes, just three things) to do.  I will let you know that when you feel so good about just getting those three things done, your list will grow and you will have the energy and spirit to finish it.

After driving nearly 2,500 miles, the Aha list was very long.  With my new thinking, I'm going to take that list one at a time.  As long as I do this, I will keep moving forward and my future will sort itself out.  There is a reason I am in the situation I am in right now. It's preparing me for my best self.  If I don't stop long enough and learn the lessons that are being thrown at me right now, how will I ever move forward in a positive manner. As someone wise told me last night, "Different forest, same trees!".  Basically, if I refuse to figure my "stuff" out now, history will just repeat itself.  Take that nugget and go out there and get at it!!

Life is Like an Open Book

I'm in the process of finishing up all of the work required to put out my first book.  I'm very excited about the whole thing, but am realizing more and more how much appreciation I should have given to all the authors of all of the books that I have read up until this point in my life.  It's a long, hard process.  I didn't realize it until I find myself in the middle of being in that process.  I can see the finish line but am trying to muster up the strength to see it until the end: publication date! I'm currently working with several people including book designers, both inside and out.  I'm also working with an amazing editor who has helped me immensely throughout this whole process.  It's not unlike having a whole staff of people at my beck and call.  I appreciate them and the hard work that they are putting in to help me see this through to the completion.

This book will mark something more than just becoming a published author.  It will mark me finally seeing a project through until the end after a very long time of floundering with what I wanted to do.  You see, I stepped out of my corporate role when my son was very little.  I wanted to stay at home with him and enjoy his growing up years.  I didn't realize that somewhere in that process, I would lose my sense of self. This book is me re-inventing myself and not getting lost in the saga of "I've stayed at home for six years and now have nothing to show for it except seeing my son bravely step into the world after I have prepared him for that role".  I'm so proud of both him and myself for forging on and finishing up what life has shown us so far.  My book is the sprinkles on the sundae after making sure all are happy and healthy.

The book is a compilation of stories from this blog.  Each chapter shares a story and then has a section at the end that will give the reader some ideas on how to make their next decade their best decade.  I'm looking forward to sharing these stories with my readers and will be thrilled if it has a positive impact on someone who will be inspired to turn their way of thinking about that next decade into something positive and motivating!

I look forward to hearing from my readers about any stories that this book sparks them to have.   The book should be released sometime next month.  Stay tuned.......

Until My Next Adventure,

Drama Knocked on the Door & I Didn't Answer!

I'm noting a trend in my life this week - drama is coming from all directions.  It made me stop and ponder, since I am the common denominator, where do I need to make some changes?  When you start making changes in your life, it causes a ripple effect among those closest to you.  They see you making changes and wonder if they too, need to do the same.  This produces some interesting reactions.  We've talked about this before on my blog, but since it is coming up yet again, I felt like there needed to be more discussion around it. As you rise on your path, you will find that you are having some folks closest to you try and bring you down.  It's disappointing to say the least.  Case in point, this week I had someone very close to me share news of someone that just wasn't her's to share.  It traveled around, was shared with me, and next thing I knew, I was feeling like I was the bad guy when in fact I tried to shut it down by telling the person sharing it that it wasn't hers to share and I was going to forget she told me.  Confused?  I was too!

Drama will come to you from all avenues, it's your reaction to it that is what matters. It's a struggle but you will find it easier and easier to rise above each time.  The less time you spend reacting to it, the less drama will come your way.

I'm choosing to take back my power in this situation and cut cords to those that stirred up the drama in the first place.  The Universe is obviously trying to tell me that I need to, yet again, pull in my circle of influence and surround myself with those that lift me up.  It's those folks that create an issue and then don't take personal responsibility for it that will find themselves on the outer layer of my "circle".

I am seeing a trend for what I am calling "rescuer energy" lately too.  I've been there and done that.  Let's spend our day working on other's issues so we don't have to spend time on our own issues.  I get it, it's so much easier that way.  Why bother to address our "stuff" when we can get in the mix of others?  I'm making the choice to no longer step into drama.  There are days where it will show up on my doorstep, but I know I have the personal choice to pretend no one is home!!

A Weekend Full of Good Food & Fun!

A weekend spent in the Phoenix/Tucson, Arizona area is a weekend full of fun, hot weather and great eating.  I've gone to this area a couple of times in the past, but this weekend I was able to, for the first time, spend some quality time driving around and really enjoying the cities for what they are.  It was super hot, but the many air conditioned restaurants and misters in the gas station serve to keep one cool. I landed in Phoenix just in time to join my Arizona-based brother for a lunch at the Tempe location of Culinary Drop-Out (http://www.culinarydropout.com).  A funky, cool vibe greets you when you pull up to the valet stand.  In the Arts District, the building is big, loft-like and filled with small white Christmas lights, wood accents and big, garage-like doors.  It offers both an indoor and outdoor seating arrangement.  As it was super hot, I stuck with the indoor one.  My chicken salad was to die for!  I also partook in the pretzel and fondue appetizer.  Needless to say, very filling.  It was a bit much to eat those and then climb in the car for the 1.5 hour drive to Tucson.  However, I got her done!


My Friday night started out with a wonderful meal at Tavolino Ristorante Italiano (http://tavolinoristorante.com).  This fine eatery had many surprises in store.  I started the meal with the traditional mozzarella caprese which was very yummy.  Fresh tomatoes and mozzarella combined to make this an amazing appetizer.  My main course consisted of sharing a plate of beet raviolis with my cousin.  We also passed around a plate of butternut squash raviolis.  Have to say, the beet raviolis were the winners hands down.

Although the air outside was over 100 degrees of "dry heat", inside things were warm with laughter, love and good food.  I hadn't seen all my cousins in one group in a few years.  It was so great for me to be around all this good energy for lots of laughs, tears, and toasts.  There is just something about being around those you grew up with for you to be able to let your guard down and hang loose.  These particular cousins grew up across country from my native New Jersey, however, once I moved out West, we not only re-connected but also bonded deeply.  They are my "happy, healthy" family members who I love to be around.


The weekend continued on with graduation parties, shopping and even a squeezed in work-out at my new addiction, Orangetheory Fitness.  We have a new franchise here in Park City, and I was able to join in on a class in Tucson at their new location.  This one hour work-out (www.orangetheoryfitness.com) consists of sessions split into intervals of cardiovascular and strength training with heart rate monitors to track intensity and maximize metabolic burn.  I have never stuck to a work-out routine before, but for some crazy reason this one is addicting.  The one-hour work-out goes super fast.

I finished up my time in Arizona with a ladies' brunch at Agustin Kitchen (http://agustinkitchen.com) in Tucson.  I arrived early and was able to spend some time getting to know the fabulous Jamie behind the bar.  What a sweet, upbeat young lady who clearly enjoyed her job and excelled at it.  She was a whiz at mixing up beautiful mimosas, Bloody Mary's and anything else you could want on a hot Sunday morning.  My cousins and I ordered off the brunch meal.  We started off with a huge, home-cooked cinnamon roll that tasted like a sugary cinnamon/gingerbread mix.  Only order one for the whole table because they are giant.  Well worth the extra calories.  I had huevos rancheros that were amazing as well.


As you can see, I spent most of my Arizona time soaking in the amazing food.  We are a little understated here in Utah when it comes to great food, so when I go out of town I have to make up for it.  I totally did that and more in Arizona....

Until My Next Adventure,

Looking at Life Through New Eyes

This past week has been a series of ups and downs.  I'm moving ahead in my business but seem to have trends of going backwards in other areas.  It's almost as if there are forces out there that say, look how good she is doing, we better throw her a curveball. What I realized after a while is that perhaps I'm the one throwing out the curve ball. I'm the one that is making the choice to accept the part in drama.  This just has to stop. I can make the choice to either participate in the distraction or walk away from the distraction. Case in point, yesterday was Mother's Day.  Happy Mother's Day to all of you moms, step-moms, etc. out there.  My day was wonderful.  Cards, gifts, getting waited on and slipping under the covers to read my latest novel while it poured rain out.  Then, the drama showed up.  (Cue the music for Jaws here.)

I had sent out a group text to all the mothers in my family in the morning, wishing them a great day.  I got back the usual responses, "You too!", "Have a wonderful day.", then the one showed up that triggered me.  It came from a relative who has devoted her life deep into religion.  The text showed up with a bible verse of some kind.  Now mind you, I'm not against religion, I just choose to do it in my own way.  She chooses to do it in her own way and makes sure that not only does everyone know, but tries to judge us when we don't get onboard her bus.  It started me down a path of how dare she, who does she think she is?  It took me awhile and a few phone calls with my tribe to bring it back down to not judging or basically doing the same as her.  She is entitled to her opinions/thoughts, it's just when she tries to put it on others that it irritates me.

I had a great phone call this morning with one of my ladies!  She has been in a similar position and summed it up by saying that this relative is a salesman (the religious one in the family).  She thinks she is here on Earth to sell this program and won't rest until everyone is on board the train.  No matter what I might say to this person, she won't hear it.  Again, her prerogative.  What I have to decide is, do I jump in the fray or remove myself from the situation?  I'm going to choose to remove myself from the situation.

I started out today with feeling like there were tentacles trying to pull me down a few energy levels.  However, I quickly realized that I have the resources within me to not go down that path.  It's taken a lot of years and lots of new tools, but I'm happy to report that it is getting easier and easier.  The outlook for this week is that it is going to rock!!!

Until My Next Adventure,

Building Your "Version" of Family

Last Saturday ended on a beautiful note.  It ended in a way that restored my faith in the Universe and in Spirit.  Let me explain. It was a day full of endless errands and my to-do list: cleaning, meal planning and shopping.  As the day wore on, my energy felt more and more depleted. There were people running stop signs, flipping people off and just energy all around that felt off kilter.  During all of this, I was getting more and more text messages from family members.  It was almost like they all decided to reach out on the same day.  I was feeling like the information booth at the rest-area.  When is so and so's graduation, what are the emails for these relatives, and on and on.  I stopped and thought to myself, how exactly did I get to be the information booth for my extended family?  On one hand, great, I'm happy to help.  However, on this particular day I was feeling depleted. It got me thinking about how my role in my family has changed.  I have become the "different one".  Can you relate?  Are you the one in your family who is bucking trends and deciding to reach outside the box to figure things out and not repeat family patterns?  If so, you know how gratifying yet exhausting it can be.

Awhile ago, I changed from being the one with FOMO (Fear of Missing Out) to the one who started saying no.  I started saying no to things and family events that I knew would again, deplete my energy.  I realized that it is okay to say no to some things.  If something didn't feel right or would take me away from my immediate family, I was going to say no.  Well, you can imagine how this was met.  It was and still is a bone of contention amongst certain family members.  I'm starting to see, though, that they take it personally.  If I say no to something they invited me to, they think it must be about them.  It must be something they did wrong.  Hate to burst your bubble, but it probably has nothing to do with you.  It has to do with me and keeping myself healthy either financially or physically.

Since I have started to say no, certain things have started to happen.  I feel liberated.  I feel healthier and I am happier.  That day, however, I had a back slide.  One that made me feel as if saying no was somehow wrong.  Maybe saying no is something that would be causing me guilt.  After all, I'm told, it's family and you have to go.  I wallowed for all of about two hours and worked through it all using both energy techniques and meditations that I have learned.  I got back on track and realized that it really is okay to say no.

Once I was back on track, I started down a path of feeling some grief.  After all, my family doesn't seem to be the Norman Rockwell version that America seems to think we all need. I realized that I don't really have a close relationship with any of my four siblings.  We are in five different states for a reason.  We have nothing in common.  We all have different interests, different families and different ways of life.  While that might seem sad, I was reminded today that I have made (and am still making) my own version of family.  I have wonderful friends and a great group of like-minded folks that I am growing to know and love.

That day ended on a great note that made me feel warm and cozy and that the Universe had my back.  A wonderful couple who I have met recently (they reside in Arizona) were in Utah for a family event.  They went out of their way (mind you, they were traveling with kids and grandkids) to meet up with me long enough for ten minutes of chat and some warm hugs.  They went out of their way for me.  I can't begin to tell you how much that gesture meant to me, especially that day when I was processing some grief. Thank you both!!

I wish you all a happy, healthy tribe around you.  If that includes your family, kudos to you.  If you have worked to create your own family, even more kudos.  Know that you are not alone in your path to your "family".  I am living it too.

Until My Next Adventure,

Vancouver: You Will Always Have My Heart!

I love travel.  It's an opportunity to see how others live, experience new places and best of all, try new food.  This past week found me north of the border in beautiful Vancouver, BC, Canada.  This was my third trip to these parts, but the first time that I have spent more than a few hours exploring this beautiful city. The last two times I was there, I quickly headed up to Whistler Mountain.  I am so glad that I had the opportunity this past week to spend it all in Vancouver. When you arrive in Canada, you realize that although you are close to the United States, you feel a billion miles away.  Entering the country, you are met with an almost European like scenery.  The gorgeous mountains surround the water while the city sits on an island like atmosphere.  There are tall skyscrapers surrounding beautiful churches, buildings, and waterfront scenery.  I was there for six days and had the chance to absorb quite a bit of this incredible city.


The first night we arrived, we came upon an interesting sight.  Evidently the TV show "The Flash" was being filmed outside of our hotel.  Fun to watch, explosions and all.  Vancouver is becoming quite the hub of film production.  The US Dollar is doing well up there, so I guess folks are migrating out of Hollywood.


There are plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities in Vancouver and her surrounding areas.  The days saw us going up in a seaplane, visiting museums and walking across a suspension bridge 250 feet in the air at the Capilano Suspension Bridge Park (https://www.capbridge.com).  This experience took me several tries before I went across the suspension bridge.  It was surprisingly hard work to get across having to wade through multiple groups of tourists stopping right in the middle to take their selfies.  I was afraid to look down on the way across, but as this is the only way in and out of the rest of the park, I stopped on the way back to gaze at how high up I really was.


Our days continued with good weather (which is a rarity in Vancouver), good food and fun experiences.  On one of our last days in the city, we decided to try out the Granville Island Market.  This was definitely one of the highlights of the city.  Taking the water taxi to the island affords you a great view of the everyday hustle and bustle.  It also alleviates you having to find a parking spot which is rumored to be difficult.

Stepping into the Public Market was a sensory overload.  Whatever food you could think of had a vendor or multiple vendors.  I saw rows and rows of beautiful fruit, meats, cheeses, and best of all bakery goods.  The macaroons were to die for.  After eating our way through the market, we ended our day by walking back to our hotel and calling it a night.


I can't wait until I have the chance to visit this beautiful city again.  It left a lot of memories implanted in my mind.  I will always think of the wonderful time I had across the border.

Until My Next Adventure,

P.A. Walker

The Game of Telephone

“When you are not honoring the present moment by allowing it to be, you are creating drama.” ~Eckhart Tolle Remember that game of telephone that you used to play when you were little??  I am sad to report that it still exists as an adult.  There are still those people out there that won't come right to the source to get the truth.  Why?  They love trauma and drama and gossip.  I have come to realize that I am surrounded by this every day whether I want to be or not. I can only do so much to remove myself from this modus operands but even when I try, it still comes right to my door.  It's just an every day fact of life. With this in mind, I set out to do some research and see how I could exist on a daily basis and not get caught up in the fray.

There are several wonderful tools you can use when confronted by drama.  I was recently confronted with drama when my child decided to tell a non-truth to a classmate of his.  It spiraled out of control and eventually, two weeks later came to my door (thankfully) through a friend who was willing to step up and ask me if it was even true (it wasn't).  Thank God she did.  It has since come out that this untruth went around the neighborhood and through the woods.  See, an instance where the game of telephone came up.  I wish folks had just come straight to me and asked instead of taking for granted that this untruth was well, true.

It's my new MO to uplift situations.  For instance, when someone starts talking about our negative-filled presidential race, I can do one of two things, 1) ignore and change the subject or 2) walk away.  There is a third option, that is to make some humor out of it.  I'll give you an example, I made a comment the other day about how hot the Prime Minister of Canada is and guess what, it completely changed the tide of the negative conversation that was starting to take place.  Mission accomplished!

Let's be real, drama will forever be a part of one's life.  It's the reaction to the drama that will determine how it will be handled and what your reaction will be.

I recently came across a blog post on Tiny Buddha - http://tinybuddha.com/blog/7-crucial-steps-to-minimize-drama-in-your-life/.  An amazing article that puts it all into perspective.  Here are the top five points that this article goes on to explain.  I highly recommend reading it in detail though.

  1. Recognize when you might be creating drama.  If there are multiple areas of drama in your life - be honest, you're the constant.
  2. Change your perspective.
  3. Don't feed into other's drama.
  4. Reconsider unhealthy relationships.
  5. Be clear and straight with people.

Five basic but powerful steps to use when you are wanting to move away from drama.

I wish you luck in creating a drama-less atmosphere.  It's amazing how you're perspective will change and how it will change you.

Until My Next Adventure,

Healing in A Medium Way

Have you ever sat back and noticed how many different facets of life there are?  Let me explain.  So my guilty pleasure at this moment is watching "The Long Island Medium" on TLC.  There, I said it.  I put it out there.  I bet there are many other people that can relate to this as well.  It gives me an hour of brevity while I eat my lunch.  Since I work out of my house, it's nice to get out amongst the "real" world for an hour or so and see what's going on. Theresa Caputo is your typical Long Island resident.  Well, perhaps I shouldn't stereotype folks like that.  I'm sure they are not all walking around with long nails and big hair.  However, since I left the East Coast 15 years ago, I kind of still have that stereotype in my head.  Heck, I had the big hair myself.  Never quite understood the nails though.

I digress.  As I was watching an episode On Demand today, it became very clear to me that although we all come different backgrounds, cultures, family size, family style, geographical location, etc., the themes of life run the same throughout all different types of people.  In my life's work, I would love to be able to heal people to the point that they can get out of their ruts and move into their best selves.  After watching today's episode, it dawned on me that that is just what the Long Island Medium wants as well.  You can literally see the folks she is doing readings for lift up in spirit and body. It sometimes looks as if they have gained back years of their lives.  What a gift to get.

I lost both of my parents to a heart attack and Alzheimer's respectively.  One I never got to say goodbye to and the other the goodbye was too long.  What I mean is that my mom suffered with this disease for a long time.  It would have been nice to know that she passed over sooner and got to a peaceful place.  There are days where I know their souls are around me.  In fact, just the other day I distinctly smelled cigarette smoke around my house. I went out and no one was anywhere around.  In fact, I know none of my neighbors smoked.  A ha, I thought, Dad must be coming in for a visit.  He smoked like there was no tomorrow.  Unfortunately because he smoked so much, there was no tomorrow.

In each of the readings that Theresa does, you can see the different themes of life:  loss, love, regret, gratitude, joy, relief, etc.  Loved ones get the answers they have been looking for.  Thus they can begin the long process of healing and moving on with their lives.  That's what I want for my clients, myself and my family members as well.  Take that first step and the others will follow.  Step out of your need to be right and step into saying yes to your soul!

So now that I have outed myself as a fan of a reality show, I feel like a weight has been lifted off of me.  Why do I sit in the basement and hide this? Why don't I put myself out there with the other fans of her show, why, why???  So this is probably the subject of another blog post to come!!

Until then,

P.A. Walker
