A large POP sent me scurrying around the house trying to get my Power back
While re-setting timers, clocks, and tripped switches, I found my Mac needed an upgrade, which really put me on hold. The whole computer froze up, was beyond Slow, and I had to walk away while it uploaded, replaced, and optimized it’s soul.
But more than that, I realized I needed to Reboot ME. I needed a Simpler ‘other’ world. It begins with….
1. SLOW DOWN, TAKE IT EASY…. SLOW WAAAY DOWN….Stop the scurrying! There was no rushing the Mac, and no rushing this experience. I was being given a message here.

Intuition and Inspiration are food for the soul. Yoga is another great full body meditation for health, de-stress, and inspiration. A more active method is to lose yourself to creativity, making things, art, writing, body movement, song.
Consciously slowing down time & shifting my lifestyle is healing. This approach is where real Power lies. As you explore the ‘Other’ world, it enters into your daily life and that changes everything.
