Here are some ideas for creating intentional Wholeness and being Enlivened regardless of your Age

Try these various rituals or practices daily to support you physically, mentally and spiritually and realize the present moment is the time for wholeness.

  • Breathe.  When you’re feeling tired, anxious, numb….breathe.  Keep the natural cycle going. Let experience in and feelings out with your breath.
  • Stay active. Find something that energizes you and brings FUN into your life while pumping your heart faster.  Walk, bike, dance, de-stress and enliven with a PEP exercise!
  • Follow your passion – be curious, ask yourself what makes you feel alive, what makes you feel beautiful, and find ways to do more of that.
  • Rid your mind of doubts – replace them with thoughts of peace, beauty, gratitude and joy.
  • Make a choice to be happy at the beginning of each day.
  • Be kind-hearted and loving to yourself no matter what and welcome all your feelings.
  • Make it your intention to see the beauty in yourself and in everyone and everything around you.
  • Be ritualistic about continuous gratitude for your life and all that surrounds you in each moment.


Willingness - Our Doorway to Self Discovery, Growth, Beauty and Longevity

However, none of it is possible: our health, beauty, success or fulfillment, unless we have the great asset of willingness!  It puts us back in control of our lives by focusing our energy on the one thing we can truly change – ourselves.  Willingness requires openness and is a powerful catalyst for change – opening us to the awareness of how we are feeling, looking, and acting toward ourselves and others. If we are being unkind to ourselves we will definitely not project beauty and wholeness, since true beauty is an inside job. 

I have experienced firsthand, that we can regain our balance and come back to our true selves and do it on a day-to-day basis.  It’s a matter of being willing to make empowering choices to be the best we can be for the rest of our lives. 



In celebration of this New Year 2013, I ceremoniously drew from The Book of Runes, my annual ritual of divining what the Universe has to tell me from the words of this ancient oracle. I drew Teiwaz . It is the Rune of the Spiritual Warrior whose task is always with the self!  It reminded me that the struggle of the self is always with the self and that there is “a willingness required to undergo your passage with compassion and in total trust.”

Not surprisingly, and with a giddy awareness, I realized that one of the other Runes I drew in the spread was Mannaz , the Rune of The Self! As you know from my web page, my work focuses on the self, the starting point from which our true natures can be uncovered and from that grounded place we easily discover our interconnectedness and oneness with the global family. 
I even have a program with the acronym, S.E.L.F. (Self Enhancing Life Fulfilling) I’ve used in my work for years, so this revelation was full of synergy! So, this Blog is about the SELF, the place where everything begins.

I knew on the spot that the Mannaz symbol would be the symbol for my web page!  As this Rune instructs: “A correct relationship to your self is primary, for from it flow all possible correct relationships with others and with the Divine.” It goes on to urge rectification, and weeding the garden before the flower blooms.  A perfect message for me and I believe for all of us for living in the present moment and being true to ourselves.  I love the symbolism of this Rune.  I thought it was especially perfect that if you cut Mannaz down the middle, you see the Rune for Joy and Light with its mirror image!  And we all can use more joy and light.

I welcome your comments and suggestions as I begin this process of sharing these various Enlivened Ageing tools here and on the web page. And I invite you to strengthen your resolve to explore the strategies you are drawn to and enter into the process with joy on this incredible path of SELF awareness and aliveness and join me in making this the best of the rest of your life.
