Love Bomber

What is your Fulfillment Recipe?

Hi Love Bombers!  This past week I had an awesome experience getting to host the local Napa You Matter Meetup Chapter, and after the event, a woman approached me to ask how in the world I keep staying dedicated to continue building this Love Bomb movement day after day after day.

She got me really pondering how to answer her, and, I realized, there is a magic formula for me of knowing what it is that fulfills me, combined with doing the things that help me create those moments.  Since defining success in this way, vs. a random "must get big audiences," "must get lots of likes," "must gain massive approval" goal that leads, well, mainly to that aching feeling of never succeeding.

Here I spell out some ideas for anchoring into fulfillment, as I make my way towards designing a more in depth free online course!

Here is to wishing you massive fulfillment in your Love Bomber efforts!

Big Love,

Rhea

P.S.  Did you know that we are actually expanding into cities as we speak with the You Matter Meetups?  It is my mission that everyone reading this blog will have a spot to go with other like minded women.  Okay, sorry, for you men, someday we'll be able to build your chapters too!  Meanwhile I'm happy to serve you here as I know these topics are major relevant for you too.

How Do You Anchor During Challenging Times?

Some days when I am doing these FB Lives,....I get on fire and I feel like, wow, that was a good one.  This is a good one!

The structure of this talk comes from my Concept Therapy days,....and then anchors to the heart that has become a major part of my work during the Love Bomb days.

I go over a four point process for anchoring and finding the Love, being a part of the New Paradigm, as a Love Bomber, all while enjoying life!

If you have any kind of challenge coming on for you and you need to find a way to anchor, this is for you.

If you are ready to be a major part of the paradigm change from the head to the heart, then this is for you AND I'd love to talk!

I have 3 spots left for the My Love Bomb Program Facilitator Training path this year and we are kicking it off in one week.  I am ready to open those up to three more kick-ass heart-centered motivated women ready to live and love across the divides we make up with our minds.

If you feel called to this, please email me and let's get the conversation rolling:  dr.rhea@blossomlife.com

Big Love!

What are your game changers for 2017?

Hi There, it's Rhea here.  Happy 2017!  

This message is inspired by the time that I took with my husband to look at 2016 and celebrate our favorite moments.  What I didn't expect, is that as we looked at the growth, change, highlights, and evolutions that occurred for us on personal levels and as a family we realized that there were these "game changer" moments that occurred through a combination of our hope, faith, and courage.

We tried new things, and those new things led to physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual healing and growth.

I know that it can take a lot of hope, change, and courage to take a step out to try to make improvements, especially the longer challenges have been going on.

This conversation is a boost to encourage you to go for it with mapping out your dreams so that you can look back on 2017 and see that you stepped out and created the game changers to build the vision you dream of.

In celebration of the power of game changers, I'm also making Love Bomb free for the month of January when you sign up on the home page of this site right here:

Have you been pondering the idea of making becoming a My Love Bomb Facilitator and changing the lives of women in your community one of your major game changers this year?  Let's talk!

Here is to building a wholehearted year of more Love and more Connection, for you, and for those whose lives you contribute to.

Big Love,

When Life Feels Chaotic, Part 2 from "Chaos is Transformation"

Hi There,

Following up on the podcast release of "chaos is transformation" I felt called to jump onto FB Live during one of my "Best Day Ever" broadcasts to chat some more about how we can start to tonify the feeling of chaos by noticing patterns in nature that link us to a much longer and more stable feeling of secure placement within the intelligence of life than our minds can sometimes feel by staring at the microcosm of our own personal or collective chaos.

Here is the clip!

I'm on a "let's look to nature for clues about life" kick this month, and it feels harmonious.

Love,

Rhea

For the Love Of Your Body, A Conversation and A Meditation

Sometimes what we really need is a Love Bomb right to ourselves.  Sort of the "put the mask on you first before you put it on the child."

This conversation and meditation focus on love, right here, right now, for the cells of your body.  

I am finding this incredibly useful for stopping and pressing play on love that will literally become the chemistry of my body.  It also happens to be a 20 minute guided meditation, the exact amount of time that Dr. Herbert Benson found to be the magic number for a daily "relaxation response" practice for helping our bodies to get out of stress response and into ease, which has a myriad amount of positive affects on health overall.

I also find that, well, calm happy full of love Rhea means nicer Rhea.  And that contributes love bombs to everyone, especially those closest to me who sometimes take the brunt of it when I have fallen into cranky not love bombing Rhea.  Pretty sure I'm not alone in that one!

So, go ahead and connect to the content with the podcast conversation, and then sink into a self-care self-love experience with the meditation.  Then do the meditation again tomorrow.  And the next day.  See what happens if you commit to a week, and then do another week.  

Here is to absolutely nourishing and loving ourselves as well shed so much love on others!

Here is to being love bombers!

Big Love,

Rhea

P.S.  If you love this self-love experience, you will probably love the My Love Bomb Program.

From Lost to Found, The Path To Finding The Purpose, with Leah Kinsella

Subscribe to Love Bombers

This wonderful conversation!  I got to catch up with Leah Kinsella after years of not having seen her and only catching glimpses of her journey via Facebook.  Her journey has been so fun to watch online as I've seen her become a powerful yoga teacher, meditation teacher, and now life coach in training through Miami University.  I feel the journey embodies many a step by step unfolding that those of us Love Bombers go through who are seeking to understand how we can be of service to life, while expressing the calling of our souls.

We talk about the power of listening to ourselves, and then to others.  Her entire journey is a profound one of rediscovering her own inner voice, listening to it, and then watching the profound effects reshape her life.

The Transformational Power of Birth as Metaphor and Reality, with Kate Coletti

In this Love Bombers conversation I connect with Kate Coletti.  Kate has over 15 years of experience in women's health as a midwife, birth educator and advocate, prenatal yoga instructor, massage therapist and prenatal massage instructor, doula trainer, and mama.

She shares frankly about the power of having a strong "why" for choosing natural birth, the support network to go towards it, and how she assists women through her Enlightened Birth day retreats.  In the conversation we end up exploring the power of birth as experience, and as metaphor for any Love Bomber on a journey of creation and metamorphosis in their own lives.

I continue to be in awe of how the chemistry and physiology of our bodies mimic the very emotional and spiritual experiences we go on in our lives, and how, by design, we are meant to live in love.  From conception, to birth, to life itself.

In part two of the reunion interview with Lisa Reagan we dive in to a paradigm shift that many people and parents are currently experiencing and aware of.  They are moving from a predominantly stress driven culture which drives us into a feeling of disconnection, isolation, and "squeezed thin," into a new paradigm of reclaiming calm, connection, and community.  It's the move from the head to the heart, and it is a courageous journey that she continues to refer to as "The Hero's Journey" as inspired by the work of Joseph Campbell.  She inspires us to know that our challenges and our squeeze are actually a call to action into more being and less doing.

Lisa has been on a Mother of a Quest for 17 years as an award-winning journalist, activist and nonprofit visionary, exploring the space between our unsustainable industrial culture and the emerging cultural story of what is possible for families who are leading the way forward.

Lisa is a co-founder of the nonprofit, Families for Conscious Living and the executive editor of Kindred.  Lisa shares her personal stories of shifting in features, such as Spiritual Composting, in Kindred and other conscious parenting publications.  In her presentations at conferences and workshops, she inspires parents to look toward Joseph Campbell's Hero's Journey for guidance on transforming themselves as a path to transforming our unsustainable culture.  Her Parenting As A Hero's Journey Virtual Retreats and publication launched in 2015.

Finding and Giving Your Love Bomb, With Becky Diel, International Board Certified Lactation Consultant

Subscribe to Love Bombers

In this podcast I get the pleasure of interviewing my own lactation consultant, Becky Diel.  She was like an angel to me in the days following the birth of my son when this were going haywire with painful nursing and mastitis.  Her presence completely shifted me and my family back into the sweet love bubble trust of the newborn adjustment phase and her continued support was like an anchor throughout.

She has been around birth and moms for over 18 years with experience supporting moms and babies in scenarios ranging from straight forward homebirths to hospital births to complicated births and high acuity hospitals.  She loves working with families and helping moms to get started on their breastfeeding adventure.

In this interview we talk about her journey into landing on this path of service, the angels who helped get her where she is today, and how she uses the power of listening to land fully into the moment in support of moms and babies.

She shares about her vision for how happy breastfeeding moms and babies contributes to a more sustainable and happier world.

She will inspire and calm you at the same time!

The Ethical and Fulfilling Business of Service

Subscribe to Love Bombers

In this episode of Love Bombers I speak with my own business coach Shawn Dill about the business of service.  As a Love Bomber myself I reached a point in my life where I had to choose that in order to keep going with my passionate hobby of making media, like the film Love Bomb, and other courses to uplift other people's lives, I would have to start making it a business in order to have the time and resources I spend on it also add value to my family.  I hired Shawn to help me look at this hobby and help me to align it so that I could turn it into a business where my authenticity, passion for service, and love for others was also aligned with the needs and values of enough people that I could earn money for my family in exchange.  Today Shawn speaks about the principles he uses to help me while answering pertinent questions from other Love Bombers wanting to be in the ethical and fulfilling business of service.

During the episode Shawn also references the book that has helped me, Book Yourself Solid.

What is responsible service? An International Inquiry

What is responsible service?  An International Inquiry

There were many questions for me that went into creating the film Love Bomb when it came to the potential to inspire thousands of people into international service.  I believe that doing service on an international level brings with it many questions in order to participate in a way that is truly beneficial to everyone involved.  This is a short piece beginning the inquiry into this very complicated topic.
