The Story starts with Our Gifts–

You know that incredible, powerful, creative, magical, visionary, eloquent woman? She has amassed decades of experience and wisdom and she has suffered for decades, always putting everybody else first? Yes? 

Well somewhere along the line, the self-sabotage began: "you're average, not gifted, writing is tedious & difficult, only lucky people get published, and anyway you're retired now...so it's too late." No!

Like you, I am a woman of a certain age with long-held dreams of writing a book (in my case a novel.) When fresh, original creative writing did not show up the instant I had more time, I began to realize that writing was more words. Writing is a Soul Calling!

Drawing on all my skills and experience as a teacher, multi-media marketing expert, and author I re-invented or weeded out a good many writing practices and methods and added more clearing and healing. I healed my lack of belief in my writing skills. Eventually, I realized I wasn't the only retired woman with a calling to write so I began to mentor a community of women writers of all skill levels so they could awaken their soul gifts and writing skills, too!

How to know mentored writing works before you even try it–

"I love the moment when that thought, that idea arrives in my head. I wasn't necessarily consciously trying to think of something to write. It just happens and then I am tuned in to that idea. Everything stops around me except for my pen that keeps writing down that super idea. I begin reaching deeply within my being to grasp onto the words so they do not wither away. Silence is precious as I continue to create, using all of the cells in my body. At last, the words stop forming and my pen stops writing. I look back on the page to see what just happened, and as I read, I discover another treasure that came from my heart that I must share."

–Carley Smith, The Heartland Poet.

"Thank you for the quiz consultation and recording. I found it so interesting and inspiring.

I’m drinking in all that violet and Queen Bee energy before I write today." –Jan in the UK

Crossing the waters of writing.

Writing with me you hear your inner-writer, understand your soul gifts and follow your calling.

You're a creative wise women pregnant with a book. You're experienced, retired now, or soon. AT any rate you're ready to share life-changing work. You have time to write, but the words feel frozen. Does this sound familiar?

That was my scenario, too, and that's why I felt called and uber-qualified to help. Drawing from my experience teaching, writing, mentoring emerging authors, and communications design, I mentor heart-centered women to write, develop, and bring their work into the world. 

My calling began in earnest in 2015 when I took early retirement, so I could dedicate myself to writing. There I was with all that free time, but the words remained frozen.

That is when I realized it takes more than free time to live the life of a writer. It takes harmonious and stimulating energy, both. Then, if your energy is stuck in self-sabotage, the bodymind is asking for clearing, healing, and healthy habits (a writer's hygiene!)

After publishing my first book, I awakened to the call of women like me whose soul contract is to create a soothing flow of words into the world. Using all my skills, life experience, and training, I started leading groups of heart-centered women to discover and unleash their inner-writer.  I

n 2016 I found Zoom and moved my writing groups online, so none of us had to travel. That opened the door to a world community of creative soul-expression.

This year, when COVID hit, I offered "Our Daily Gifts" to heal and minister to The Writers each morning, seven days a week- which I did for several months as a community service and humanitarian ministry. Since then, I continue to clear any fear, stress, or anxiety the world brings in so the writers can work more freely!

Although my groups are writing-based, they continue to be heart-centered, at-home, spirit-communities of wellbeing, so all of us can be alone together. Each week I help retired women integrate writing with wellbeing, and I don't see that changing, ever! I'm quite happily fulfilling my Soul Purpose doing something I love!

So, as you progress with the process of discovery, exploration, and hearing your soul's calling you won't have to walk that path alone. Each week I share the secrets of how to work WITH your gifts instead of against them. And it will all feel like magic because I've  gathered a group of wonderful, warm, wise women writers who are already working on books and beautiful bodies of work. 

"Retirement is a new chapter, not the end of my story!" –You
