Eyes for Mind

Eyes for Mind. What?

Let’s look together.

I have more silence than words these days. And it’s lovely.

I was gifted with tuition for Michael Neill’s Advanced Course, and wow, this gift goes deep. Last week’s theme was about finding one’s “Eyes for Mind.” (At least that’s what I’ve taken away so far. There’s probably more to come. These things unfold.) While I found the words Eyes for Mind a bit baffling at first, I see changes in me that are rippling from these profound ideas; I’m experiencing what a new level of presence and peacefulness can feel like.

Mind? Try these definitions, one might land meaningfully for you: Mind as the Divine. Mind as Inspiration. As Breath. As this moment. Mind as that inner knowing. When I look with Eyes for Mind I see with appreciation.

Which feels so good.

My quiet weeks are full of activity, insight, and creativity:

I’m on a mission of redoing this website. I am guided by the words: Simplify. Clarify. Minify. Fewer pages. Fewer words. Hopefully much clearer all around. And current. I think everything I do and how I do it started to radically change right after we launched the latest version. Want a sneak peek? Have a look at the new Coaching page. It’s almost complete. You can even go ahead and book an introductory call!

I’m loving the upsides to just about every circumstance I’m facing these days.

Look at what’s happening with this particular mashup I’ve got going on: The ongoing transportation saga (circumstance #1) has me choosing to drive less, making my daily walks often cover a 2-mile circle (with my house in the center). This means I’m in the same neighborhood, on the same streets, passing the same houses, seeing the same gardens. Plus this big bad knee injury is slowing my pace (circumstance #2). I saunter for sure. No fast-walking for me these days.

The upsides: I see more detail. I notice things I hadn’t seen before. Even my own shadow. Eyes for Mind — I have no idea if the noticing is a result of being more grounded, less agitated and anxious. Or if all of these wonderful ways of being are just woven together. I don’t care how it works. I just love finding my way there more and more, and helping point my clients in that direction as well.

Products — Eyes for Mind

My healing and beauty products look so good now that they finally have labels (she said, tooting her own horn).

This project took months. When I do my own design, I am the world’s pickiest client. However! I love the logo. Completely inspired by Our Lady of Guadalupe, and completely customized by me. Yes, that’s a magnolia the Goddess figure stands upon. Of course it is.

Shine Your Light Serum and Magic Spot Pain Reliever are in stock. Handmade by me with love. Small batch. Also of course. 🙂 The new Products page is still under construction, so email me if you’d like to order, or if you have questions.

Sunflower — Eyes for MindI’m offering Introductory calls to women in business who might feel the call to also simplify, clarify, and minify.

Whether it’s strategy, or the unending merry-go-round of tweaks and changes… you can lighten the burden and shake up that to-do list. Leaving you with more time to settle down and take a saunter around the neighborhood. Just sayin’….

The cost is $97 and the call lasts as long as 90 minutes. You’ll leave the call with a ton of clarity, a handful of ideas (there should be one or two good ones in there!), and clarity about what you want to do yourself, and what you might want to hire me to do for you. Book your call here. Once your payment goes through, you’ll get a link to schedule your call at a time that works for you.

As always, bubbeleh, I’d love to hear from you. Comment below, and let me know what you think.

I’m a barely tamed hippie, sage, seasoned, sarcastic (not all the time any more, but still). I’m a mom, a daughter, sister, a neighbor, and a friend. I’ve been on this meandering journey — like you, probably — seeking a better connection to and experience of peace, harmony, and fun in every bit of life. I’m single, quite good at it, and mostly love it. I’m here for the conversations I get to have with you, which these days center on exploring the mystery and beauty of life, work, health, aging, and creative expression. Want to know a little more about me and my journey? Explore the site. Read the blog. Connect with me on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, and LinkedIn.

  1. It’s wonderful to see you constantly streamlining your life and your business, Sue. In a very noisy and cluttered world, I love the idea of simplifying too. I need to start in my home, as after 34-years in the same house, there is a lot of stuff that needs to go. When I read “Eyes for the Mind”, I thought it was referring to inner seeing. How when we look inside and see how busy our minds are and the ‘trouble’ it gets us in to, the easier it is to quiet our mind and our life. You have to see it before you can change it.

  2. One of the gifts of my hip fracture 4 years ago was that when I was able to get back to walking, I had to walk much slower, and this gave me the time to see everything in detail, to catch what I might have missed before, and to appreciate all of it.

  3. Thank you for sharing your new experiences of exploring the concept of eyes for your mind! Having experienced knee surgery and a long recovery, I appreciate and have great compassion for your healing process. Don’t stop!

  4. Simplifying things leads to greater clarity around what one really wants, Sue. My surgeries earlier this year led to great insights about what I really wanted and what was important to me and I dumped a lot of activities that were fun but weren’t nurturing my creativity. Looking forward to seeing the changes you will make on your website to document this stage of your life journey.
