The Game of Life and How to Play It

I recently discovered the book, The Game of Life and How to Play It by Florence Scovel Shinn (1925), via the You Are Creators channel on YouTube.

GameofLifeBookIn his editorial review on Amazon, Dr. Norman Vincent Peale states, “The Game of Life is filled with wisdom and creative insights. That its teachings will work I know to be fact, for I’ve long used them myself.”

Much like The Science of Getting Rich by W.D. Wattles, The Game of Life and How to Play It explains the metaphysical principle of thoughts becoming things (because thoughts invoke a feeling/vibration), and Universal Laws including the Law of Attraction, the Law of Substitution, and The Law of Cause and Effect.  While many today would consider this New Age,  The Game of Life and How to Play It was published in 1925. Shinn, an American artist and book illustrator, became a New Thought teacher in her middle years, following in the footsteps of others like Charles and Myrtle Fillmore, co-founders of Unity Church.

Writestream Tuesday: William Todd Interviews Julie Tara

It’s the first Tuesday of the month, so entrepreneur and author of the forthcoming book, The Mentor In Me, William Todd, is hosting Writestream on September 6 at 1 PM Eastern. Tune in to listen to his interview with highly accomplished guest Julie Tara, a former ballerina, energy practitioner, entrepreneur with Nikken International, and author of the poetry book, Songs of Gaia:

Entrepreneur and author Julie Tara.

Entrepreneur and author Julie Tara.

Julie has an eclectic, creative background in the Performing Arts, Energy Medicine, Entrepreneurship and Creative Writing. She started training for Ballet at three-years-old, performing in England by the age of seven. She left home to live and study to become a ballerina at the highly prestigious Royal Ballet School from 10 to 15; continuing her training at the Royal Ballet Upper School for three more years. While she was a student, Julie danced with the Royal Ballet Company and the Royal Opera. She then joined Dutch National Ballet in Holland.

A few years later, Julie expanded her range in the performing arts through joining a traveling circus, as a dancer, in Mexico. This famous circus, “Cirque D’Italia”, was somewhat similar in style to a smaller version of Cirque de Soleil. Then Julie changed her career course to follow an inner calling to heal, beginning her training in Energy Medicine and Nutrition with Macrobiotics at 23. Over subsequent years, she has trained in Hands on Healing, Shiatsu, Crystals, Therapeutic Touch, Polarity, Shamanism, Creative Visualization, Magnetic Therapy, Psyche-K, and other modalities.

She has been a passionate advocate of Natural Healing for over 36 years at this point, first with her private healing practice, and then teaching and training thousands how to empower themselves with preventative measures. She brought up her 3 children with Macrobiotic and other Asian principles, teaching them how to live in concert with the Laws of the Universe, in order to not only maintain health, but to truly thrive on all levels.

She was one of four founders who owned and ran a 15-acre Healing Center in Estes Park, “Nova Institute,” that included Healing Retreat Programs, a 5-Star Organic Food Restaurant, Conference Centre and many Cabins. She taught Yoga and 5 Rhythms Dance and was the Director of the Arts and Healing Program. People attended the programs from all over the world.

Julie started her global work as an Entrepreneur with the Japanese Health and Wellness company Nikken in 1995. She was the fastest woman to reach the top rank of Royal Diamond in just under four years, and loves building a team of passionate individuals who are on a mission to help others transform their lives with the 5 Pillars of Health philosophy: Healthy Mind, Body, Family, Society and Finances. Her greatest joy is creating a healing ministry with others throughout the world.

WT_Julie Tara Book CoverJulie lives in Boulder, Colorado and has been a writer for many years. Her first book of poetry: Songs of Gaia ~ Devotional Poems to Nourish the Heart was published in 2015. She is now working on her second book about Spirituality and Money, called “Mystic in the Marketplace” which will be published in 2017. She is an avid Yogini and Pilates student, and continues dancing through life to the music of her heart song.

Spiritual awakening has been Julie Tara’s lifelong passion, both for herself and others. She has sought the divine spark through creativity – in her professional ballet career, in music, holistic healing, and in the transformative beauty of our natural world.

As a spiritual entrepreneur she is trusted and revered by thousands around the world for her inspirational presentations on reestablishing harmony with the laws of the universe. She dedicates her life to opening portals of consciousness, empowering us to achieve vibrant health and wholeness.

Her mystical poetry in Songs of Gaia celebrates the natural beauty, love and light that exists within each of us, pointing the way to our deep inter-connectedness. Her words open a new lens on the magic that lies at the center of all things.

The Powerful Month of September

I just got off of an energetic intention-setting call led by my amazing friend and coach, entrepreneur Tasha Powell Chen. A few nuggets of information I received included:

  • It’s the first Day of the Month and a New Moon — everything in nature is urging us to ASK, ASK, ASK!
  • It’s the 9th Month of the Year — and 9 is a powerful, creative number, a symbol of Wisdom and Initiation
  • It’s the Last Quarter of a 9-Year Cycle — time for reflection on the past nine years and how they have prepared and led each of us to where we are now
  • September is the Month of Wisdom and Discernment

Perhaps not coincidentally, my monthly Pisces horoscope from reads:

PiscesWe’re heading into the last trimester of 2016, but it’s New Year’s Eve all over again for you, Pisces! A glowing lunar eclipse in your sign on the 16th sets the stage for major changes ahead. You always experience a full moon in Pisces around this time of year, but 2016 delivers a full moon eclipse your way. As a result, get ready to close out chapters from your past. Deals and projects that you’ve been working on over the past six months may finally come to fruition. You’ll be ready to move on to another level of living that you may not have experienced before. And if you’re not  ready? The eclipse will still take you to a different place whether you like it or not!

But this isn’t anything to fear. The cosmos, in its wisdom, knows that we can get stuck in ruts and inertia can set in. That’s what eclipses do: they shake, rattle and roll us so that we’ll see the light and move on. This one may make you aware of people and situations in your world that are holding you back, as Mars is in a tough angle. Mars doesn’t like being cornered and neither will you. Chances are that you’ll break free of a job, relationship, group activity or family tie that has worn out its welcome. If you’ve been dutifully keeping a stiff upper lip and your opinions to yourself in recent months, don’t be surprised if you speak up, loud and proud, around eclipse time.

And as eclipses always occur in pairs, there’s a solar event taking place on the 1st. This one occurs in your partnership sector which deals with both romantic and business alliances. As this is a new moon, a fresh beginning can start in love. Singles could find a keeper over the next six months and attached Pisces will make more of a commitment to their lover. Truth be told, if your romance is not built on solid ground you may consider moving on as stern Saturn urges you to look way down the road—do you want to put even more time into a situation that’s not working out? But Neptune could cloud your thoughts, and Mercury is retrograde in this part of your chart until the 22nd. Don’t make any major decisions in love until after then.

The solar eclipse could also introduce you to a person who’s interested in teaming up with you in some sort of business alliance or project, and it could prove to be quite profitable. That’s because on the 9th ( a drumroll, please) lucky Jupiter enters your finance house for the first time in 13 years. This house, the eighth, is all about investing, such as buying real estate (a rental property or your own home), retirement plans, stocks, windfalls (such as an inheritance or nice legal settlement) or entering into a joint venture. Jupiter governs profits, and this is the house of passive income. Teaming up with someone else is the way to go.

For example, if you’re thinking about going the entrepreneurial route, Jupiter can help you line up investors. A friend or relative may ask you to invest in a startup of their’s. You could patent an invention or make some wise investments in the stock market.

Jupiter blesses you in yet another way, as the eighth house also governs sex, intimacy and shared emotions. The next 13 months could be some of the sexiest on record for you! You may be more open to sharing your thoughts with a loved one, and spending more quality time with a lover will become a priority. Single Pisces are in a hot steaming’ place to meet a new flame, thanks to the solar eclipse and Jupiter rolling into your commitment sector. Attached Pisces will see their relationships go to a higher level: engagements, babies, cohabitating, or renewing vows. When the Sun enters Libra on the 22nd it will be joining benevolent Jupiter, so the next four weeks could be game-changers when it comes to your love and family life.

Pluto has been retrograde since April, forcing you to examine your deepest held wishes and aims. You may have realized over the past five months that things you thought that you wanted are no longer important, leading to a revised wish list. You change as a person when Pluto backstrokes through this part of the sky, and this small but mighty planet was also asking you to consider the company you keep: friends, neighbors, team members and groups that you’re a part of. When Pluto goes direct on the 26th you may move forward with a smaller but tighter cadre of friends and associates whom you trust implicitly.

And as one door closes, another opens. Megawatt Mars enters this part of the sky on the 27th, introducing you to a whole new set of people. Networking is the way to go in October, so get ready to crush it on social media, make plans with your tribe and join clubs and organizations that will introduce you to like-minded people.

So many exciting plans in the works that are about to come to fruition! I’ll be posting updates soon as official announcements go out, but let’s just say I’m gearing up for a fabulous fourth quarter!
