WHEN I LOVED MYSELF ENOUGH!
As I began to love myself, I found that anguish and emotional suffering are only warning signs that I was living against my truth
Today, I know this is Authenticity.
As I began to love myself, I understood how much it can offend somebody if I try to force my desires on this person even though I knew the time was not right -- and the person was not ready for it, and even though this person was me.
Today, I call this Respect.
As I began to love myself, I stopped craving for a different life, and I could see that everything that surrounded me, was inviting me to grow.
Today, I call this Maturity.
As I began to love myself, I understood that under any circumstance, I am in the right place at the right time, and everything happens at the exact right moment. So, I could be calm.
Today, I call this Self-Confidence.
As I began to love myself, I quit stealing my own time, and I stopped designing huge projects for the future. Today, I only do what brings me joy and happiness, things I love to do and that make my heart cheer, and I do them in my own way and in my own rhythm.
Today, I call this Simplicity.
As I began to love myself, I freed myself of anything that is no good for my health -- food, people, things, situations, and everything that drew me down and away from myself. At first, I called this attitude a healthy egoism.
Today, I know it is Love of Oneself.
As I began to love myself, I quit trying to always be right and ever since, I was wrong less of the time.
Today, I discovered that is Modesty.
As I began to love myself, I recognized that my mind can disturb me and it can make me sick. But, as I connected to my heart, my mind became a valuable ally.
Today, I call this connection Wisdom of the Heart.
We no longer need to fear arguments, confrontations or any kind of problems within ourselves or others. Even stars collide, and out of their crashing, new worlds are born.
Today, I know: This is Life.

Here is a wonderful article by
Brave New Life Sister: Vonn
Day 798 – Stillness.
There is an energy of disintegration of the old paradigm that is causing a wabble in the energy field and it is alerting us to stabilize and find solid ground within our body, mind and soul. I have an unshakable knowingness that I am an expression of Prime Creation and as such there is no outside authority that has either the right or the ability to have any jurisdiction over me. There is no one that needs to save me because I do not need saving. The programmed word ‘Saviour’ was imprinted very consciously by religious leaders to make their flock victims to a higher power, when the truth is that we are powerful beyond imagination as Souvereign beings of Christ Consciousness. As the old world begins to self-destruct, we must spend time to be consciously connected and guided by the life force that is and always will be who we are. A focused intent is required to be grounded, to connect with the beauty of nature, to keep our minds and hearts clear of fear, doubt or stress. What I know to be true is that we are living in two worlds right now and they are going in different directions. One is setting us free, and the other is keeping us enslaved. Never before has our faith and trust been tested as much as in these days of transition, we are being asked to walk our talk with conviction and focused intent that we are the creators of our reality and we are the ones creating the New Earth of a new era of light, of love, of peace and of wellbeing for all. Heaven is here, you just have to open your heart and mind to let it in. Namaste <3 <3
Souvereign is breathing full of renewed energy after another long "brainfog" episode. (watch out for an update that he received from Sophia 🌹 on these recurring energy fluctuations and these actual upgrades that cause great challenges in our ability to feel grounded, clear in our focus and live our life in the 'old frequencies'!! ✨ You don't want to miss that!)

Grappling With The Paradox Of Less Is More: Trends In Affordability And Sustainability We are in a moment to reflect on fragile supply chains. Businesses can analyze them for circularity and find places to replace the traditional “take, make, dispose” business model with one instead focused on reusing and recycling materials.
This means exploring new practices such as dynamic pricing, micro-factories and hyper-localized manufacturing. You can also find opportunities to share existing resources versus creating from scratch. As an example, upcycling companies are doing everything from turning leftover bread into beer to making functional furniture from used coffee grounds.
As we start to embrace scarcity in business, we don’t necessarily have to look at it from a loss-making perspective. Boardrooms of the world must come to accept that innovation does not have to mean new and selling less does not have to mean revenue loss—rather, it can be an opportunity to embrace new business models. (Forbes)
Here's Another Favorite Song of the Brave New Life Family:
Ducks ala Pest Control
Cute video about a mama duck & a puppy:
“Flow with whatever is happening at the moment,
allowing your mind to abide open and free.
Remain focused, centered and equanimous —
accepting all things
just as they are —
In this you will discover the power of Now.”
— a literary adaptation of a teaching from the Zhuangzi, attributed to Zhuang Zhou (aka ‘Zhuangzi’), 4th century BCE philosopher
by Mac, wonderful Brave New Life contributor & author.
A great deal of intelligence can be found invested in ignorance when the need for illusion is great.
HERE'S ANOTHER GREAT SONG: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TpZma2xlmkk&list=PL9lFXBCwIzSeJiSWosldBmOE-OvnVH989&index=4

Introducing The Heroine's Journey Retreat Monchique, Portugal
23rd to 30th September 2022
There will come a time when you can accept nothing less than the breath-taking truth of your soul, the voice of divine love within you.
- Meggan Watterson
Based on my book, Falling Awake – A Heroine’s Journey, this week-long immersion invites you to answer the call to explore your own Heroine’s Journey.
Come and join me in the beautiful mountains of southern Portugal, for a deep dive into the practices and experiences that helped me tell my story.
This women’s retreat will offer you the chance to engage in Qoya, mindfulness, writing, sharing, ceremony and ritual. Through the connection and support of each other, we will be able to delve deep, to go within, to feel, to let go, to heal, to find our voices, find our truth...and emerge through the other side!
Other than what you are thinking & believing, aren’t you fine?
If you have any ideas for OUR VOICES, OUR STORIES, OUR COMMUNITY, please let us know!
We honour the courage it takes to share our hearts within our community, whether by writing, or sharing art work or photography, or by speaking, or being a sacred witness... this empowers us ALL. Let's all keep stepping into & reveling in our Brave New Lives...& sharing that wisdom with the rest of us!
