Farewell 2018, Welcome 2019

Farewell 2018, Welcome 2019

New Year Blessings and Greetings. As you reflect on the past year,

  • Identify an experience that challenged or stretched you.
  • What was a significant lesson or insight?
  • For what are you most grateful?

I’m most grateful for quality time with family and friends, particularly my Village Family, Spiritual Family, Conscious Evolution Family, Business Mastermind Family and Birth Family. I’m grateful for good health and financial growth as well as the spiritual, social, cultural, business and political engagements that challenged, delighted, stretched and grew me in myriad ways!

2018 marked the 10th Anniversary of The Wright Resort, founded as a BodyMindSpirit Wellness Center serving mature women, now Your Soul Safari to Success, dedicated to Feminine Leadership and Social Consciousness. Recent website updates reflect my service as a Soul’s Calling Activist, current Speaking Focus and ongoing Blogs. Learn more: www.TheWrightResort.com

 

A few 2018 highlights:

EMBRACING 2019

Some astrologers and numerologists describe 2019 as a 3 Universal Number, the vibration of creative self-expression, optimism and authentic communication; exploring new ideas and terrain, shining our light through the darkness. Qualities of connection, collaboration and cosmic clean-up are also noted!

In the tradition of the Dagara Medicine Wheel, 2019 is a Mineral Year characterized by communication, story-telling, purpose, memory, particularly remembering your purpose in life. It is the storage place of memory…principle of creativity…resources…stories and symbolism. We carry the memories in our bones. The color is white.

  • What excites you most about the New Year?
  • Identify 2-3 intentions that you want to fulfill.
  • In what ways will you evolve or expand your work in the world?
  • How will you know that you lived your highest and best this year?
  • What is the word or phrase that best describes your attitude or feeling about this year?  Or, what is your theme for 2019?

For me, 2019 ushers in the 70’s decade. To celebrate, I’ll embark on the Kemet Nu – Know Thyself, From Cairo to Nubia Educational Tour, July 6 – 20. I was already psychically there with my 1988 Master’s Thesis, The Mystic Marriage: Ancient Egyptian Wisdom as Creation-Centered Spirituality. Now actually being there later this year is another “Rites of Passage” for which I’m deeply grateful.

It is also my intention to publish my 3rd book of poetry, ALWAYS LOVE, completing the trilogy of THEN LOVE and NOW LOVE.

Furthermore, I envision being in my Wright and Perfect Home Sanctuary…and who knows, it could even be with my right and perfect Compatible Companion!

Let’s maintain and deepen our connection this year. I encourage you to share your aspirations, intentions and commitments, so that we can mutually support one another!

Life is what you make it! You create your life beginning with the thoughts you think, the words you speak and the actions you take. What kind of life are you creating? One of limitation or liberation; one of poverty or prosperity; one of stress or success? The choice is yours…to make it a mediocre or magnificent life! – Harriet Tubman Wright

If you’ve not set or clarified your intentions for 2019 or you want to transform your life from mediocre to magnificent, and are open to support, I’m happy to work with you one-to-one or as part of a Seeding Intentions Group, during the week of January 14. Please sign-up now for a Seeding Success Session at: https://wrightresort.simplybook.me/ and we can determine what’s most suitable to launch your success with faith, enthusiasm, clarity and commitment!

Peace and Blessings,
Harriet

 

The Magic of Silence and Stillness Countering the Madness, Settling into Center

What’s all the rushing, hustling, shopping about…the addiction of commercialism and materialism that leads to hoarding and debting?

Ah, the holiday season—from Halloween Trick or Treat to Thanksgiving indulgences; Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Tuesday Giving, Christmas and the-day-after Christmas sales. Even as I write this, I feel exhausted and choose to take deep slow inhalations and exhalations to re-center myself.

For some people it’s quite an effort to remember/resurrect the true meaning of the Holy Days, the Season of Advent. It is indeed a deeply transformational time. It is noted that:

Halloween or All Hallows Eve means All Holy Evening. This is followed by All Saints Day and All Souls Day when the portal between the physical and non-physical is open and there is heightened communion with the ancestors. Dia de los Muertos or Day of the Dead is also celebrated by Latinx communities during this time.

In the Northern Hemisphere, we experience more darkness, as the nights become longer.

During ancient times, many cultures held festivities and various rituals honoring the light. For example, Hanukkah, also called the Jewish Festival of Lights commemorates victory over oppression and rededicating their Temple in Jerusalem. With a small amount of oil, the first candle was lit, and remained lit for eight days—a true demonstration of faith and devotion.

The Winter Solstice occurs o/a December 21. It is the longest night or shortest day, also considered the first day of Winter. Many cultures celebrate the Solstice which is associated with the return of the light or rebirth.

Christmas or Christ-Mass traditionally honored the coming of the Messiah. It is said that early church leaders melded the celebration of Jesus’ nativity with pre-existing Pagan midwinter festivals.

Kwanzaa, or First Fruits is an African American tradition that celebrates 7 principles of cultural wholeness. Family and friends gather and each night a candle is lit to recognize the principle of the day, usually followed by discussion and a sumptuous pot-luck meal.

I’m grateful to be aware and reminded of the true meaning of this Holy Season. Is it any wonder that some people feel cognitive dissonance between the mania of commercialism, high levels of stress, physical and mental exhaustion, contrasted with an inward focus of stillness and silence? To be in sync with the natural world in Winter when nature is more dormant and many animals migrate or hibernate, means that this is a potent time for release and rest, reflection and renewal…the time for rebirthing, to be born anew, welcoming the New Year.

  • In what way can you create more balance and harmony?
  • What must you release emotionally and materially?
  • How are you resting and renewing yourself physically, mentally and spiritually?
  • Who and what are you birthing or bringing into manifestation?
  • How are you choosing to shine your light?
  • In what way will you embrace the New Year?

On Another Note:

To be fully tuned into my heart and soul, and more fully aligned with Spirit, I’m essentially off-line until December 21, the Winter Solstice. I look forward to reconnecting with you during the transition from 2018 to the New Year!

Be Blessed and Be a Blessing during this Holy Season.

 

Peace,
Harriet

 

 

Illuminate Your Soul’s Call-to-Action Now!

The Mid-Term Elections have passed. However, the impact, consequences and opportunities resulting from the outcome will shape the trajectory of this country and the world for generations to come. Hearty Congratulations to all the Women Democrats who won at the local, state and national level! And of necessity, the next phase has begun…

Having expended energy and funds to support candidates and causes, it may be prudent to pause; reflect; refocus efforts and renew yourself before years end. Time off, time out and time in…

Many conscious, successful entrepreneurs, corporate managers and organization leaders have already developed program priorities and financial projections for next year!

If you’ve not done so already, it’s not too late for you to do the same. NOW is a great time to identify your intentions, solidify your commitments and legacy.

  • Where do I want to go from here?
  • How do I want to use my gifts and skills now?
  • What is the best use of my talent(s)?
  • How can I manifest my dreams and desires?
  • In what ways do I want to strengthen my legacy?

Three Tools to Move Forward

Daily Spiritual Practices – Incorporate self-care/soul care practices that include solitude, silence and stillness. This enables you to commune with your true self, listen to inner guidance and relax body, mind and spirit. You can therefore enjoy the refuge of deep awareness, serenity and wholeness.

“When I’m still and silent, I feel the flow of love within that helps me experience harmony and peace in the appearance of chaos.” – Harriet Tubman Wright

Values Assessment – Make a list of the beliefs, people, things that are most important to you; the non-negotiables that help make your life meaningful. Create, review, put the list away for a short time and then make any adjustments, so that the final list reflects what you most value in and about your life.
For example, I value pampering spa retreats!

Get Support – Secure a coach, mentor, advisor, prayer or mastermind partner to help keep you focused; someone with whom to share wins and challenges, celebrate milestones and make appropriate course corrections.
When I work with a mastermind partner or coach, excuses are not accepted.
I’m compelled to follow-through with my intentions and fulfill y commitments.

I welcome the opportunity to move forward with you. Please allow me to guide and support you with a:

Finding Balance during Changing Times

In the Northern Hemisphere we’ve begun the Autumn Season; my second favorite season highlighting nature’s profound, beautiful changes. Seeds of intention were planted at the start of the year, cultivated during the Spring. Some of us enjoyed succulent Summer Fruits, while others look forward to the Autumn Harvest.

Autumn is also a season of letting go. In the same way that trees begin to change creating an awesome array of colorful foliage that eventually falls…red, gold, orange, yellow maple and oak leaves carpeting the earth, we too must let go.

Therefore, as you reflect on this quickly passing year:

  • What intentions have borne fruit, providing joy and satisfaction in our life, family, business or community?
  • In what ways have you adjusted to the unexpected, the surprises or losses?
  • How are you preparing to let go; particularly those people or things that do not serve, nurture or fulfill you?

Change is essential for growth. If we are to grow, we can learn to go with the flow, allowing the lessons along the way to strengthen us. No matter the season or weather of our daily lives, we may sway, climb, dive, bend…If we lose a branch or two in the winds of change, we know that new growth is taking place.

  • How are you experiencing this change of season in your life?
  • Are you willing to let go of something else to allow space for new growth?
  • What harvest do you most want to celebrate this season?

Balancing Actions

Although we’ve officially passed the Autumn Equinox, its still important to acknowledge balance between the feminine and masculine, the sun and moon, movement and stillness…

Therefore, make these 5 self-care & soul-care practices a priority:

  1. Maintain alignment, balance and coherence in BodyMindSpirit through exercise, sound nutrition and proper rest.
  2. Ensure that your external environment supports healthy boundaries by avoiding clutter; maintain order and organization.
  3. Take regular refresh breaks away from your computer to move your body, breathe fresh air outdoors and get a different perspective. You’ll be more clear-headed and more productive when you take refresh breaks to renew yourself.
  4. Learn when and how to say, “No”, “No thank you” or “No, not at this time” without guilt, shame or apology.
  5. Know what you’re responsible for, what’s yours to do and stay in your lane. Avoid trying to do or control anything that is NOT your responsibility, job or task.

Remember, when we take care of ourselves first and model healthy boundaries, we’re better aligned, balanced, focused, enabling us to serve and share our gifts with the world from an ever-flowing wellspring of optimal BodyMindSpirit health and well-being.

Enjoy this season in balance, wholeness and joy!  

Approaching Autumn with Apprehension and/or Appreciation

“These times call for us to break free from mental and emotional bondage; make use of our finest talents to help liberate ourselves and those we serve. This is also the call of our individual and collective soul to be healed, whole and healthy.”   – Harriet Tubman Wright

It’s been another challenging year for many of us. We’ve encountered unprecedented political mayhem, intensified weather catastrophes, heartbreaking losses, heart-warming wins and more. Very few if any of us are coming through this year unscathed! We’ve resisted, endured, risked and triumphed. Yet, there is more to come…

  • For what are you most proud?
  • In what ways have you been victorious?
  • What have you yet to complete or achieve? 

Approaching the final quarter is a good time to assess how and where you’ve been.

  • Have I met my milestones?
  • Do I need to adjust my priorities?
  • How can I ensure my success?

Not only can you course-correct or bring closure to some of your projects, but you can also begin to establish your priorities or frame your commitments for the new year and beyond. 

  • What are you willing to be or do differently?
  • Is there something vital that you’ve been denying or postponing?
  • Do you feel compelled to do something else, and if so, what?

 Although these questions are thought-provoking, I’m listening to my heart and soul to respond. I encourage you to do so as well.

Fulfilling your commitments can be challenging; staying in your comfort zone or maintaining familiar habits creates a false illusion of security. Holding yourself accountable and seeking the right help or support can make the difference between you falling short or succeeding.

Each of us are called to Show Up, Stand Up, Step Up and Rise Up, in courageous, creative ways with like-hearted people to transform our challenges into inspiring opportunities on a personal and global level. We are the ones who must co-create the world that we want for ourselves, our children, grandchildren and seven generations beyond…It’s vital that we co-create it now!

Allow me to support you to stay focused, maintain healthy boundaries, fulfill your commitments and cross the end-of-year finish line triumphantly. Together, let’s identify next steps to your highest soul expression and success with a complimentary Soul’s Calling Vision Session (SVCS). Learn more about benefits of this 45-minute phone SVCS and schedule HERE. I look forward to co-creating a fruitful here and now together! 

“What higher opportunity or possibility compels you to risk experiencing greater good in your life? With love, trust and joyful expectancy, seize the moment and soar!”
 – Harriet Tubman Wright

Fulfilling Your Soul’s Call-to-Action Tele-Class

 

PS- Dear Friends in the Southern Hemisphere, I realize you’re approaching your Spring Season!

If You’re Not Answering Your Soul’s Calling, Who Is?

In other words, are your expressing your true nature, living your divine purpose, doing what you most love? Your Soul’s Calling is what you’re born to be and do! It energizes, motivates and sustains you…and it lights you up and those with whom you interact. Your Soul’s Calling frees and fulfills you to express your deepest passion with dedication and delight!

From an early age some of you know what you’re here to do. You focus your education, develop your talents, sharpen your skills and pursue your heart’s desire. You want to become the best you and over time become a master, whether an artist, engineer, teacher, firefighter, athlete, doctor, entrepreneur or public office holder. You’re good at what you do and can honestly say, “There is nothing else I’d rather be doing.” Such is the case with the Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin, Steve Jobs, Louise Hay, icons like Steph Curry, Jean Houston, Chadwick Boseman, Joel Olsteen, statesman Ronald V. Dellums, author Danielle Steele, as well as the youngest Nobel Peace Prize winner, Malala Yousafzai and cellist, Sheku Kanneh-Mason!

Yet others ‘exist’ based on other people’s expectations and allow conditions or circumstances to control who you are and what you do. You put your family or your boss first, perhaps putting your true passion on the back burner. You procrastinate until you vegetate. As a result:

  • You don’t live up to your full potential
  • You experience stress, frustration or even illness
  • You don’t feel purposeful, joyful or fulfilled

You just get by…day to day…year to year with a hole in your soul. Instead of mastery, you settle for mediocrity. Rather than aspire, you expire, like a flower that withers or a light that dims… Ultimately, you’re not happy.

  • Does this describe anyone you know?
  • Who do you want to be when you grow up in consciousness, authenticity and truth?

However, the Creator has a way of getting your attention. Your wake-up call may appear as a serious illness or getting laid off your job. It might appear as an inheritance or the right mentor. Everything changes if you choose to see the wake-up call as an

opportunity to change gears, shift direction and move forward charged up, willing and ready to be what you’re born to be and do!

 “A soul awakening is moving from what you used to be to who you’re supposed to be. Let the light of your soul shine and awaken others!” – Harriet Tubman Wright

  • What are you choosing? Magnificence or Mediocrity?
  • What is the vision, dream or passion within you that wants to be expressed?Design
  • In what ways are you being your very best in service to others?
  • How do you feel when you’re doing what you most love?
  • When you come to the end of your earthly existence, how do you want to feel and what do you want others to say about you?

As a Soul’s Calling Activist, I’m committed to and excited about helping you discover and live your Soul’s Calling. If you’re uneasy answering the questions above, perhaps it’s time for a “Soul Check-Up.”  Perhaps it’s time to schedule a complimentary Soul’s Calling Vision Session to identify your heart’s desire, uncover blocks to expressing your passion and clarify next steps.

“Your questions were helpful in getting to the heart of stuff.” – Sarah B.

As DAILY OM co-founder and author Madisyn Taylor says, “You don’t have to neglect your responsibilities to pursue your passions and you don’t have to neglect your commitments to do what you love. When you make an effort to incorporate your interests into your life, the fire within you ignites. You feel excited, inspired, and fed by the flames sparked by living your life with passion for what you love.”

Finally, if you’re absolutely living your passion, your Soul’s Calling, please share what it means to you and how it makes you feel, in comments section below.

“The world is waiting for you to be who you are called to be. Be brave. Be bold. Be bright.” – Eugene Holden, RScP
