December 2019
As a very young child I was shown two giant keys for "LIFE". They were forgiveness and gratitude. I have taken those keys to heart with committed, disciplined daily, weekly, monthly, annual practices, rituals, writings, visioning, aligning, releasing, radical forgiveness, coaching, counseling, genogram work, and beyond -- You name it -- I've used it. Through spiritual practice and grace, I have been blessed with routine, multiple, extraordinary moments of serendipity throughout my life and especially lately.
I was somewhat "blocked" about a topic for this month's newsletter. I've put off writing longer than usual. Noticed I wanted it to be extraordinary, moving, inspirational, informative, creative, over the top and NO WONDER I have a block, right? Instead, I decided to write without trying so hard at it. Here goes!
So many things I want you know. Here's a glimpse of just the previous month.
I cried my guts out listening to this song during my renewed studies of the Enneagram this year. It makes no sense whatsoever and nevertheless, I was deeply touched, moved and healed in some unspeakable way. For links to your type, search: youtube.com
https://www.enneagraminstitute.com to complete your "type" assessment, if interested. There are many online free resources once you complete the assessment.


I cried deeply eating a peach this year. No warning. No stress. No pain. Just buckets of tears as they fell. I had a recall of how much momma loved peaches, all fruit actually. I let the juice run freely down my face, neck, clothes, and beyond--on purpose. What freedom to not "stop it". The juice, the mess, the feelings, the life of it all.
I facilitated, for the second time, a Rightsizing Your Life class. The participants were so inspiring as they took weekly assignments and challenges to FREE themselves from energy leaks, drains, clutter, confusion and baggage of all emotional, physical, spiritual and financial aspects. I really got into the classwork again as I did in the spring. I have experienced miracles daily since I began unsticking and shifting this energy field again. I got invited to speak and serve at Chautauqua Institution! I've had this on my bucket list for 20 years. It came " out of the blue". Come join me 7/11 - 7/18 or pick a week for your schedule. https://chq.org/
I cried landing in an airport one Sunday night around 11 pm at how close by the next gate was to my gate. I had another flight to take, tired in a deep way and questioning what I'm doing, how much of it, the bandwidth I am running. I asked for a sign that I was to continue. I wanted the connecting gate to be close to the arriving gate. Arrived gate 20 - departed gate 19. Thank you. Message clear. Superstition? Maybe - I'll take it.
For the first time in my cruise history - at least 30 cruises, maybe more. I ate bread at dinner, dessert whenever I wanted and buttered lobster or other delights for ten straight days and didn't gain weight. It was a new experience of "guilt free" eating. Wildly new experience. More conscious and aware. It was beyond mind blowing. I'm not under any spell that it can continue and am willing for it to be guilt free and easier than the past 40 years have been.


I've been concerned about a birth certificate error with a family member. I've called and requested changes. I was internally directed to "stop it" and let it be. I didn't like this a bit. I found myself going back into the arena of pot stirring it again and would receive the same guidance. Stop it! Out of the blue, I received a corrected copy of the birth certificate. I cried when it came in the mail.
I often use Siri to schedule appointments and routinely she replies, "I can schedule your appointment but you already have three other appointments at the same time." While this is true and very familiar to my "ACHIEVER" energy, I am thrilled to report that I feel more "slowed" down, in sabbath living than ever before. Wish me luck.
I have experienced deep " random acts of kindness" throughout my life. I've intentionally kept my focus and awareness in that direction. This past month, I have had an extraordinary amount and depth of feelings from these acts than in my whole life. The acts have not changed, but I have. I'm more and more touched by the tone of voice, a glimmer in an eye, the little smile that seems to be waiting for me to be sure to see it and the bonuses that come from these actions or the providence of higher power or both.
"Serendipitous moments are my drink stations for the marathon of life."

I was booked on a first class ticket to San Francisco from Louisville. This is a very rare occasion for me to have first class bookings. It was a long flight. It was 5 a.m. to airport flight. The hotel informed me they didn't have a driver for that early time and I was so accepting of the reality. Without missing a beat, someone at the hotel stepped up and said, "I will call someone to come in early" to drive her. Without me asking! WOW! I arrived at the airport, the flight had been delayed, that means missed connection, that means "re-routing" and by the way -- there are no first-class seats on the new flights. I accepted that, grateful for the new routing. Without asking, the agent encouraged me to request a refund for the upcharge on the ticket. I went online and submitted a request within a few days. When I boarded in San Francisco for my return which happened to be boarding at 1 a.m. - yes a "redeye" flight, and I was not looking forward to a long flight; I got a first-class seat that was one of the "really reclining" ones.

I have facilitated groups through Immersion and Extraordinary Leaders processes for around twelve years. These are some of the most committed, intentional and evolving people I've ever known. We have retreat times throughout the year and these times continue to get better and better as we learn and unlearn what isn't true for us. As part of this endeavor, I get to witness on a daily basis, some type of emotional, spiritual, financial or thinking breakthrough. I get to share the journey of these catapults and the myriad of changes and outcomes in the lives of the participants, their relationships, their families, and their souls' evolution. Email me directly if you want information about these groups. Deadline for 2020 is December 15th, 2019. marthacreek@gmail.com.
I will be facilitating an Infinite Potential program during 2020. It will be a monthly meeting from January to September based on the Spiritual Laws of Prosperity book by Rev. Edwene Gaines. The class will be a closed group after January 1st. We will meet monthly through Zoom webinar online. If you want more specifics about the group, email me directly. marthacreek@gmail.com. FYI, the class will require participants to give/tithe/donate 10% of their income to people, places and organizations where they are spiritually fed and supported during the class period.
I've been booking, unbooking, re-booking 2020 for the last 3 months. I normally have a very solid calendar schedule for the upcoming year before this time.   The movement seems like a big energy stirring and some "boot camp" practice for me to allow, stay open, trust the movement and align with it again. It has its own terms. So stay tuned for 2020 calendar. It doesn't seem clear enough yet to post it beyond March 2020.
