Get ready to walk into the life of your own making.

March On!

Whether you live in the Northern or Southern Hemisphere, the month of March marks yet another turning point—a time of transition into the reawakening of spring or a time to harvest and enjoy the seeds that have come to fruition. It is typically a month where the (physical) winds of change become strong and active, coming “in like a lion and out like a lamb,” (or vice versa) to actively shift into the new season that is calling.

The question is, will you stubbornly stand in the old patterns, thoughts, conversations, interactions, paradigms, and actions that keep you tethered to limitation and de-evolution, or will you March Forward consciously to embrace the new rhythms of the good that want to be expressed to you, through you, and as you?

Stillness is also Motion

As crazy as it sounds, many people will inadvertently continue to march along a path of thinking, acting, and moving in ways that are detrimental and destructive, rather than choose times of stillness, as to stop “moving” can feel like a form of death. Yet, rather than continuing to follow a path that creates greater exhaustion, injury, suffering—in short, one that will ultimately lead you off a cliff to certain death—perhaps taking a moment to do a little course-correction is not such a bad option after all? Plus, how can you ever know the way if you don’t allow yourself the time to get clear about the direction you want to go first?

Moving into stillness is also motion. It’s constructive, productive and is still a powerful step toward marching forward to the life you want to live.

What can YOU do to move into a quiet mind now?

What NEW direction or decisions have the challenges you have faced inspired?


During my own dance with some of the darker aspects of mass-consciousness and family-related challenges, I, too, found myself seeking clarity and direction in order to consciously March Forward. Once I allowed the time to move into stillness, and then asked myself, “Where do you want to go?” my answer came in the form of a song (“Walk” lyrics below, audio coming soon).

It is my intention that these words speak to the part of you that also has said, “Enough is enough!” and reach through to the core of you that shouts: “I want to WALK and March Forward into the life of MY own making!”

I want to walk
To where I see the sun
I want to walk
To what we can become
I want to walk
I want to walk

I want to walk
To where I see the stars
I want to walk
And feel peace in my heart
I want to walk
I want to walk

In the days when the storms are raging
I want to move, want to move to higher ground
Where some light can be found

When it feels like the world’s gone crazy
I want to find, want to find some clarity
Remember what I believe

I want to walk…

In the dark where the fear can be blinding
I want to light, want to light a candle of hope
To warm my soul

And when all the noise makes it hard to hear
And my inner voice may not be so clear
I will still my mind until I find
The music

I want to walk…

And when I walk to the center of the center, I discover
You are my sister, you are my brother
And I invite you to come and walk with me
But if you do or you don’t I wish you…

I want to walk…

I want to walk
And always find a friend
I want to walk
Where beauty never ends
I want to walk
I want to walk

I want to walk
And feel my inner fire
I want to walk
And let the flames of love rise
Higher, Higher, HIGHER!

I want to…


The Bottom Line: March Forward
Motion is the call, the answer, the reason, the focus, the point, the everything.

Envision. Consider. Contemplate. Listen. Reach. Create. Act. Move. THIS is where the good, the radiance, the heaven, the juice, and the fire of life resides.

Here’s to choosing to March Forward into the next season of your life with clarity, focus, joy, and resolve, and to being a powerful catalyst for conscious evolution for all who would Walk with you.
