The 21-Day Consciousness Cleanse carries us on an incredible personal journey that will open our eyes to all that we are and all that we desire to be. We transform our consciousness and unlock purpose, meaning, and passion in our life.
Remember that book i mentioned in my last post, the one that i stumbled upon in the bookstore on Friday afternoon?  Well, this is it and, wow, let me tell you, it's been a good thing.  Not only do i love the idea of a consciousness cleanse but through this book i discovered Debbie Ford (who i had never heard of before).  On her website she shares some simple, beautiful, lovely meditations, prayers and affirmations. (For free)

Yesterday afternoon i listened to one of her meditations called "Latte Break," and one called "Internal Flame."  Last night when i couldn't sleep i listened to "Sweet Dreams Nighttime Meditation."  Her voice is incredibly soothing--listening to it feels like being gently cradled.  Anyway, just wanted to share the goodness.  Click here & you will be taken there.

It's been a quiet and lovely weekend around here.  It seems to have just taken on a theme of its own-- the garage clearing & house cleaning seemed to naturally lead to some internal cleansing and nurturing (yesterday afternoon i spent two whole hours at the spa!). 

I am heading to Vermont in a couple of baby sister (who is now 30!) is getting married.  I get all teary-eyed every time i think that this little person who i held on my hip is getting married--i'm so happy that she found her love.  

I am mostly planning on unplugging, breaking away from the computer for a couple of will be a full schedule and i want to soak up every bit of everything.   However, i just signed up for Susannah Conway's "August Break," so i plan on taking a little photo log of these last days of August...we'll see how that goes. 

Okay...i'm off.    :)


  1. Have a wonderful trip to Vermont. Makes me think of our trip out east for your beautiful wedding. Say hello to your family for us and I cant wait to hear about the wedding.

    So glad you had such a great weekend to yourself. I cherish those times and I truly believe my time to myself makes me a better wife and mother.

  2. really? I am so interested now. I heard of this book (I think on and thought about it. I heard her speak at Omega once a while back and liked her. Funny, now that I know YOU are reading it, I am suddenly so much more interested!


What are you thinking/feeling? I'd really love to know...
