N63A remnantThe Fall Equinox is here! Woo Hoo! Temps are cooling down in Maryland. (Can you tell I’m not a fan of being hot?)

The Autumnal Equinox occurs on Monday, September 22 at 10:29 pm Eastern Daylight Time (EDT). We are moving into a new season that allows us to shift gears for the next 3 months. AND we have a New Moon this week, on Wednesday, September 24 at 2:14 am EDT.

The New Moon is the time when we can start something new, invite in new energies to support us in our endeavors, gain new perspectives.What newness are you looking for in your life? Spend some time on Wednesday thinking about this and issuing the invitation. The Universe will hear you!

We will be visiting our NEW grandson! Finally getting to hold him in person! Face Time is great but it is a poor substitute for being there with Tristan and his Mom & Dad. If you are in the LA area, let’s see if we can hook up while we are there. (In case this is news to you, Tristan was born July 31 and arrived 3 ½ weeks early!)

The next The Oracle Speaks channeling event is scheduled for Wednesday, October 15 at 7:00 pm EDT. I channel The Divine Feminine and attendees, in person, on the phone or online, can ask questions. We do record these important messages so, even if you can’t attend, you can register and receive the recording. The previous messages are inspiring and informative! More info here: The Oracle Speaks

Some exciting things are coming up this Fall! In addition to The Oracle Speaks events every month, Richard & I are presenting The Sacred Marriage: Finding Balance in an Unbalanced World at A Community of Transformation (ACT) on October 12 with a followup all-day workshop on October 25. Email me if you’d like more information about these: Both events are in the Annapolis, Maryland area.

Plus the next Possibilities Playshop will be on Saturday, December 13 in Severna Park, Maryland. Save the date!

I’m so excited about plans for 2015 that I can’t reveal yet but it’s going to be an amazing year! In case you didn’t know, and I just discovered that someone I’ve known for many months didn’t know that I am an ordained minister and design custom rituals for weddings, funerals, etc., I do offer a one-day intensive Personal Breakthrough Day that I call the ‘FedEx mode of getting it done.’ If you are ready for a real breakthrough and don’t want to spend months to get there, send me an email and we can explore your transformation on the fast track!

Must note that our grandson, Cody, is celebrating his 16th birthday this week. Happy Birthday, Cody! I can’t believe you’ll be driving soon!

Celebrate everything NEW in your life this week!


How many times have you heard yourself repeating a story about something that happened to you, or that you learned about yourself as a child, or that some parent or teacher convinced you was true and, yet, inside, there was a niggling doubt that that story is still true about you today?

Or maybe you keep telling that story without even realizing that it belongs to the past and no longer holds any truth for the you who is showing up in your life today?

It is so easy to ‘story ourselves’ into our victimhood and we hide behind our stories until it becomes difficult to find the real person behind the mask of story.

Years ago (okay, decades ago) I sold cosmetics at home parties part time (yes, your guess is right about which one!) and I had a woman attend her neighbor’s party to try out the new cosmetics. She came in wearing orangey makeup over deep pockmarks and sat at the table with the others to follow the program, removing her makeup and trying on what I was offering. After hearing her friends around the table exclaim over her new look and how great she looked, she requested some additional cleanser, got out her bag and reapplied her orangey stuff before she walked out the door to cross the street to her home.

The hostess was embarrassed and apologetic but I assured her that it was okay with me. Each of us needs to feel comfortable about the way we show up in the world. This woman needed that mask before she could even walk across the street to go home. She ignored her friends compliments and went behind the familiar mask, even though the new cosmetics were more flattering.

How easy it is to wear what’s familiar, even if it’s not the best for us? We sometimes find comfort in the familiar when it is painful just because we don’t want to move into new energy.

What is your security blanket? What mask do you wear that keeps you hiding from your beautiful real self because it is familiar and comfortable, even if your real self is more beautiful?

Uncovering the real self behind the mask is the work of personal growth. The transformations can be amazing! And it means letting go of the old masks, the old stories that we hide behind before we can shine the light of our real self out into the world.

I have a problem with some of the support groups out there that have you staying the victim of your story by repeating it over and over again. Your story is A story. It does not define WHO YOU REALLY ARE. The only reason to tell a story is to show how you’ve grown beyond it so that you can help someone else experience the same growth.

Listen to yourself and your chatter. Notice that your stories might be repeatedly keeping you the victim instead of being stories of empowerment. Notice that you might be hiding your inner light behind a mask that you can shed now.

You are not your stories. Let the light of the real you shine into the world without a mask!

Exploring the Field of All Possibilities – Richard’s Commentary

Rosemary’s exploration this week is a great lead-in to her Possibilities Playshop scheduled for this Saturday. It is not only the Playshop but the Playbook, the product of the Playshop, that is an amazing tool to help with “exploring the field of all possibilities.” Let me explain:

During Rosemary’s Playshop we play at several activities designed specifically to get us out of our heads, out of the problem space, so we can move into the field of possibilities where solutions lie. And one of the first steps is to clear the way to get there, clear the limiting beliefs that tend to hold us in “tunnel vision.”

Here’s how Rosemary describes the “problem”:

This is the way that we can hold ourselves back from showing our greatness to the world. Tunnel vision is the very block that prevents us from seeing the possibilities that are in front of us because our focus is so narrowed. And we feel as if there is no roadmap out of our situation.

We do this clearing, opening up beyond the tunnel vision, through visualizations. This is necessary to begin to believe that there may actually BE a “roadmap” to the field.

Once we clear the old beliefs, a process to re-vision the problems and re-create a new vision forward, we are then in a great space to create the roadmap. And this is no ordinary roadmap, but one created and guided by our intuition. This is where the “play” begins in earnest.

Briefly, we pull pictures and words from old magazines, images and phrases that appeal to us. We do this fast without much thought about why they appeal. This is somewhat similar to creating vision boards (have you ever done one of those?) but with less intention, suspending the rational left-brain activity and relying on our child-like unconscious minds to direct the play.

Pictures are put in an envelope, words in another; pictures can even be sorted by size and put in different envelopes. Then the “roadmap” or Playbook is created by pulling pictures and words blindly from the envelopes for each of the months going forward. We actually align our calendars with the phases of the moon to bring an even deeper intuitive, feminine connection to the Playbook.

The resulting Playbook is an intuitively created “solution space” to use as a guide for the months/year ahead. The pictures and words can be interpreted as the moon cycles through her phases. I frequently consult my Playbook for a number of reasons, including when I am stuck or catch myself in tunnel vision.

I use my Playbook as a journal to record events. It is always curious to review the pictures and words I chose months ago to see how they inform my current situation. I also record my I Ching Gua that I cast at each new moon; there is always an alignment with the reading and my Playbook entries for that moon!

The point here is not to “sell” you on the power of Rosemary’s Possibilities Playshop event but to suggest there are tools you can use to move easily, even with a lot of fun, from tunnel vision around a problem to a new vision of expanded possibilities where solutions live. Inner work, access to our intuitive powers, even play serves to offer a way forward!

And remember, problems are lessons waiting to be learned in the field of all possibilities!

wfpic2The Transformational Author Breakthrough Event last week with Christine Kloser was TRULY transformational!What a great three days I had in Baltimore with Christine and lots of friends that I had met at last year’s event. This is a tribe of soul-centered individuals who are ready to make a difference in the world through sharing their stories. And they are fun!

I hope you have a tribe or tribes that share your perspective and world view and support you in your soul journey. If you don’t yet, find one! You have the support of RosemarySpace because the folks who join me along the way are awesome people! (And, yes, this means YOU!)

On September 20 we’ll be holding a Possibilities Playshop here in Maryland. If you are local or can get here, please do join us for an amazing day of fun, laughter, joy and progress! You’ll be in an intimate group of explorers looking into your possibilities for the coming months. Your Playbook, which you will create during the Playshop, becomes your guidance journal and reminder of the possibilities available through the months. There are details here and feel free to email any questions to me. Be sure to register before the Early Bird deadline September 15!

Did the last Full Moon hit you as hard as it did me and others I’ve talked to? Whew! THIS is why we need to create our Possibilities Playbooks so we can track where the Moon is in her cycle and prepare to deal with and utilize the energies. After the Full Moon, as we approach the New Moon on September 24, we are supported in clearing and getting rid of anything that doesn’t serve our highest good – clutter, limiting beliefs, old problems. Keep doing your Fall Housecleaning!

If you’re in the LA area I’ll be visiting there (seeing our new grandson, Tristan!) later in September. I would love to get together! There might even be an opportunity for a Conversation with The Other Side if you would like to host one while I’m there. Please send me an email to explore:

I hope you like this Hubble Space Telescope picture. It’s the result of looking into an ‘empty’ place in the heavens. Ha Ha Ha! The Universe revealed itself to us! What dark places in yourself can you explore this week to find the light of the possibilities that you didn’t know were there?

Have fun exploring!

ROSEMARY’S EXPLORATION: Exploring the Field of All Possibilities

When we feel stuck in our progress, whether it be on a specific project or task or we are stuck in a bigger way, not knowing our purpose in life or not knowing how to shift or eliminate a particular situation or relationship, we tend to drop into a sort of tunnel vision about it.

Have you ever found yourself thinking only of your problem? Nothing else seems to get onto your radar screen. Solutions seem ‘out of sight’ and, maybe, not even available at all. There’s nothing beyond what you can see.

This is the way that we can hold ourselves back from showing our greatness to the world. Tunnel vision is the very block that prevents us from seeing the possibilities that are in front of us because our focus is so narrowed. And we feel as if there is no roadmap out of our situation.

We often get stuck in tunnel vision because our belief structure, at the unconscious level, restricts us from moving into the exploratory experience of curiosity about what else might be possible. We know what our problems are and we keep looking at them as if they will suddenly jump up and tell us how to solve them. If only that were true!

What we must learn to do instead is to seek the solutions beyond the point where the problem lies.

When I worked on the Hubble Space Telescope some of the astronomers decided to point the telescope at dark places in the sky that looked empty when viewed through earth-based telescopes. No one knew if there would be anything there since nothing had ever been seen in that particular area before.

What emerged were huge fields of never-before-seen stars and galaxies! What had looked empty for all the years of humans looking at the sky from Earth were now filled with exciting stars and galaxies and other celestial presences. How exciting it was!

Where is the parallel to this in your life? What have you been looking at through your ‘old eyes,’ that is, through the lens of your old beliefs? Do you wonder if there is anything that you haven’t seen yet? Do you hope that there IS something there?

This is the pursuit of solutions that can lead you to exploring the field of all possibilities. When you tie yourself to what is known already, you limit your own field of view to see just what you expect to see. When, however, you open yourself, with curiosity, to whatever might be waiting for you, ALL possibilities can reveal themselves to you!

Examine the beliefs, those inner decisions that reside at the unconscious level, that might be holding you hostage and limiting you to tunnel vision. Discard and clear those limiting beliefs.

Then turn yourself toward an exploration of what might be there, waiting just beyond what you can see. There are always possibilities beyond the one you see with tunnel vision.

How exciting this exploration can be!


Last March we were still in the “glow” of Rosemary’s Playshop when we created our “bodacious wish” for the year and created our Playbook to help visualize reaching that wish. Rosemary is planning another Playshop for next week, Saturday, September 20. You can find more details at her website.

Creating a bodacious wish for yourself is like creating that vision Rosemary talks about this week in her “Take a Step” theme. Are you ready to step out in confidence?
