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.

Eyes for Mind.

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 the Magnolias West 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.

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.

I’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 Sue Kearney, seasoned and sage mentor, holding a lantern at the crossroads for women in the third third of life. I’m a longtime maker and happy to share that knowledge.

In my work as a coach, I look with you at what’s stopping you, and I point you back to your innate resilient wonder-full self. I also collaborate with healers, visionaries, and changemakers to create and uplevel their brands. When your brand is a reflection of your true purpose and passion, with zero manipulative marketing techniques, your just-right clients will feel the resonance and automagically trust you enough to want to know more.

I encourage and guide women in the third third of life to be inspired, in flow, and fully expressed despite social norms and the realities of aging.
