wow. I didn't listen to the whole thing (yet) and didn't get that part... that's a good point. I think I'll listen to it again...

Morning all!

I just real quick wanted to address CATGIRL --

You absolutely can be a life coach without a degree -- you're talking to one -- I took a leave of absence from college about 8 years ago and never returned because I realized that life was a better school than any place I could go --- like Melanie, I don't want to downplay the use and experience of having degrees , but also , I really want to emphasize the fact that there are so many things technically I could do but can't because I don't have a degree -- but it doesn't mean I don't know these things and that I wouldn't be fabulous at them --

I could probably be an herbalist with what I know about herbs and nutrition but that is not a passion (though it is very interesting!) -- I could be a doula which the research I know of pregnancy, childbirth, informations, techniques etc and while you don't need a degree per se to do that, certification is helpful -- but again, that is not a passion either ---

My degree (would I have gotten it) would have been in Sociology and honestly I have no doubt that I have the knowledge already to be a *Sociologist* but continuing to get that degree wasn't a passion ---

Now I am a life coach with two clients -- Devon and another, and I feel like a degree is the last thing I need

What I have is life experience -- I have God -given gifts of communication and of empathy and an ability to think outside the box and a willingness to serve --

You absolutely don't need a degree to become a life coach -- in fact, I think the fact that life has been my education speaks volumes more than a piece of paper (again, not putting down degrees!) ---

I have done tons of research, I gather my insights and information from sources ranging from The Bible -- to Walden -- to The Secret -- to Freud -- to Buddha -- to Maya Angelou -- to The Hicks -- and from everyone in between -- MOST of all though, THIS IS HOW I LIVE MY LIFE -- and that is something I think anyone who wants to teach LOA has to become in alignment with -- it doesn't mean my life (or me) is *perfect* -- it just means I have learned to effectively live my life according to the principles of LOA (and my personal affiliation as a Christian which for me, it goes hand in hand) and I am living for all intents and purposes a life of joy and magic and of peace and personal fulfillment (still working on the financial freedom )

I have healed myself from debilitating illness, I have healed my family relationships, I have a fulfilling, happy marriage, I am a wonderful, non-martyrous, happy mama, I am at peace with who I am, where I am, how I am, and am ready and willing to serve others who are on that journey inward and forward...

THAT, is what you need to be a life coach (imo) not a degree or a perfect life without any ups and downs or challenges --

Imagine if Terri (annikate) went to medical school before beginning her Finding Kate foundation:? www.findingkate.org

What if Amris waited until she completed journalism school or went to seminary or whatever to speak with Spirit and to write it into a book?

http://www.amris-messagesoflove.com/

Look at the amazing work Kate (katest.) does -- I don't know what degree she would have had to get before she felt *worthy* of sharing it with us! www.lovefrombaby.com



What if Pat (wu wei) waited until she had a PHD in child developement before she emparted her extremely insightful and beautiful wisdom regarding living consensually with children in harmony?

....or Melanie (koalamama) with the awesome website she is creating? I don't believe she has a degree in web design or in LOA but she friggin ROCKS...

....or Devon, with deciding to travel this summer -- sure, she HAS a degree in her field, but she is making lemonade from lemons - they said they didn't think she was going to be hired back, so she is taking the trip of her life and she will find her way when she ges back!

Or any of the other amazing women and mamas on this thread following their nudges from The Universe or from God or Spirit or Amris' magical french toast God



My point is, if you are feeling led to do that -- DO IT... don't get caught up in the hows .... anything you want to do, BEGIN IT.... the way will be shown to you!!

Here is my website if you are needing inspiration:

www.sculptyourlife.org

Happy Creating!!!

Thanks for sharing that! I like that idea. And I'm glad you're feeling better

Oh, thank you for this! I*'ve been hesoitating on gf/cf because it seems rather overwhelming, but today my mom said she's thinking of trying it for her psoriasis. I'm going to wait till after Passover though.
My mom is trying it too. She and my aunt have had digestive symptoms that fit with gluten intolerance their entire lives and have been told "oh, it's just you". My mom has been trying to lose weight and following Weight Watchers Core which has you count points for grains. She didn't want to bother so she's just been not eating a lot of grains and suddenly she just happened to notice her "issues" have been lessened and now, when she eats a muffin or something (whole grain, no artificial anything, yada yada yada) she finds herself having the same old problems again. She's 60 and like I said, this has been her whole life, so this is a big deal to find that it's not just the way she is. I'm very thankful to have stumbled on this idea a lot younger and I'm also excited to have my mother and aunt interested in it with me

Someone recommended a book called....umm... the five love languages?? anyone??? about how people show love in different ways and assume they;re not getting it when it's jsut being expressed differently from how they expect it to be.
I recommend that book too. I read it years ago and really liked it. It's Christian by the way, but I'm not and I didn't even realize it *was* til I was reading his bio or something, It's not preachy or anything.

captain crunchy

You make an excellent point about our life BEing what it is at any given moment and how the choices we make create what we are. AND, even more importantly, how the choices we CAN make create what we really want!!

Today should definitely be a day of manifesting our true desires!! To do at least one thing that puts us on a path to create something for real purpose!!

<says that mainly for herself...and maybe someone else could use the push, lol>

Actually, Scott Noelle posted the link originally on the Abe-Kids: Raising Abe Kids yahoogroup. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/abe-kids/ I'll post the link to part 2, when I see it!

Someone linked the Abe-Kids group here first. Here is the home page of the group, if anyone wants to join. It isn't very active, but it is uplifting.

"A FUN family discussion group of folks who LOVE Abraham-Hicks and desire to raise Abe-Kids. I want this forum to be open to ALL Abers and to be open to any and all topics, especially home/unschooling."

I haven't made it past your posts from 7:00 this morning, but wanted to just put it out there that there is no licensure for life or career coaching. For now, they are unregulated.

So much I want to say:

WuWei - Thanks so much for all the info. I plan a trip to my HFS today for a few things plus some papaya enzyme. If you have any info about vericose veins and/or hemorhoids I could use help there too .

Pookietooth and Amris - Thanks for the compassion and sympathy. You guys can understand my conflicting feelings. Yes I feel badly and am feeling a touch sorry for myself but then I feel so guilty for feeling that way because I know how lucky I am to be pregnant with a healthy baby. I believe this is probably normal and I am constantly reminding myself that I am so happy and lucky to be preg (finally) and that this will pass with time.

college - I agree that a college degree is not necassary for a lot of careers but I have to chime in 'pro-college' right now. I studied English Lit with a minor in Art History and Anthropology. I LOVED college. I learned so much and was always so inspired. I'd really love to become a college professor one day and spend more of my life's time surrounded by people inspired and talking about art and literature. I feel that it is difficult to enjoy these things in groups outside of a school setting and while my DH and I have great conversations over Art in America or the Poet's Digest, it would be nice to have even more inspiration surrounding me on a daily basis. So all of that just to say I think college isn't right for everyone but it was sure right for me and I grew so much and loved it so much. In fact I went for 5 years .

Back to lying on the sofa with giner ale for me this beautiful saturday afternoon.

Hi Mamas!!
I met Terri (Annikate) at the beach this morning and she is as wonderful in person as she is on MDC -- and her family is great!! Her girls are so sweet and her dh is funny, and we all had a wonderful time. I'm so happy I had a chance to meet her -- and she IS a hot head-red.

Now to manifest Tara CC down here tomorrow!

Taradactyl -- I hope you're feeling better.

Sending postive house-vibes to you!

TaraCC -- your post was so beautiful it got me teary!! You ARE so wise.

I have a BS and a Master's and while I think the EXPERIENCE of getting my degrees was good, I have to say I've learned SOOOOO much more about myself, other people, and my passions in my own real experience. Going to school taught me what others think, but learning on my own teaches me my own mind, ya know? Degrees are great, and obviously mean something in our society, but I've learned to look beyond degrees and definitely appreciate "real-world" wisdom. Sometimes people with the most letters behind their name have the most "unlearning" to do.
So, Penny -- you go girl!!!

MsChats -- congrats on your A!!

Pat -- how was the house party? Love to hear all about it!!

AprilDaisy -- I love your quote in your siggy.

to everyone!

Somebody asked if anyone's on the A-H forums... the computer got restarted so I lost my multiquotes... anyway, I am.

Tara, for hemmerhoids get some witchazel, possibly witchazel pads :P

Mmmm. Yesterday I got two aromatherapy books by Worwood that I'd been eyeing for awhile, and a new diffuser. I'm now enjoying the scent of eucalyptus and rosewood. Yum! And so refreshing!

It feels sooooooo good to be done with all that! I'm finally done trying to please some invisible authority. What I need to do is be me, and I can certainly do that! And by doing so I align with the Universe, that wondrous mysterious loving intelligence that I am a part of.


This is so profound, it took me 40 years to figure this out! Trust myself. What an incredibly validating place to experience life!!

But, then, I remember Shakespeare said "This above all: to thine own self be true, And it must follow, as the night the day, Thou canst not then be false to any man." (yeah, I "learned" this saying in high school; but I live it...now.)

Thanks! I forgot to update everyone. After we gave it up (or needing it to be one way or another) it worked itself out and the closing is Tuesday at 2pm. I am not able to make it as I am oncall for a birth but dh will be going.

This was the first thing we did when we learned about LoA. Figure out that we wanted to live in a progressive city, with access to beautiful protected wilderness and beauty. We wanted to be able to walk downtown and live in a neighborhood with families and trails. I wanted access to a Farmer's Market and we wanted the community to be active and embracing. I can't tell you where we are moving is that and more. Now I am just trying to stave off worrying about moving to a new place and all the what if's. We actually found a house so within our means (with an in-law so a renter will help with mortgage) that we are pretty stress free with money. This way dh can take the pressure off his stone work and work on his life coaching/ physical fitness dream. He wants to incorporate LoA with physical training and help people learn how to achieve their maximum potential on a physical level (while simultaneously working on emotional, spiritual, mental....you know! the whole schebang!) I am really excited for him.


Just a fun little tidbit. Last week I was out at a few stores and I saw some cute stuff for ds for Easter/Spring Celebration (a nice child's size rake, hoe and shovel, a cute dress shirt, a kid umbrella). I am in the habit of not making impulsive purchases and waited for this weekend and decided I really wanted the things I had seen. I went back to the two stores AND EVERY SINGLE THING I WANTED WAS ON SALE! The garden tools were 50% of, the shirt was $6 and the umbrella was $4. I was so excited just feeling like I was working on a great vibrational path...getting what I wanted at the right time/right place.


We are going out to the Japanese steak house for my bro's birthday. It is one of those places where they cook in front of you and entertain the kids. Fun! : :

Congratulations!
I love hearing your story; the house, the toys on sale, everything! (I confess I am wondering where you are....) Where we are in New England is incredibly expensive, and knowing places like you describe (which sounds just wonderful!) exist somewhere is encouraging. I keep reminding myself to just get clear on the what and not worry about the how. Thanks for the inspiration!

I understand it extremely well.

I was TTC for 13 years. Then I got pregnant with Kira, and I had gestational diabetes, and all I wanted was for it to be OVER. I was badly anemic and basically quite ill. In the doctor's office twice a week... until the end, then it was 4 times a week....

I felt like I should be so grateful, but at the same time, I just wanted it OVER WITH. YESTERDAY.

Plus, I wanted to be holding her RIGHT NOW! No, not now, a minute ago! :
