Marianne Williamson & Caroline Myss: Tough Love

Marianne Williamson  Caroline Myss Tough Love

Today I watched a Marianne Williamson Google Talk I had never seen before. There is a confidence and a hardness that I see & feel from her. But the hardness is due to a deep deep bottomless love. An immeasurable ungraspable love. It’s powerful, and you can feel it as she talks. I think that ‘hardness’ I see & feel is mistaken. I think the English vocabulary is short on vocabulary. Sometimes deep love can feel tough or hard, but it’s just certain. It’s without a doubt. And just like a sure ‘yes’ or a sure ‘no’, it’s a done deal. It isn’t debatable, swayable, or open to being pushed around.

Shortly after I watched that Google Talk, I came across a Caroline Myss interview (with Lilou Mace) that I had seen before, but I watched it again. Caroline Myss also comes across confident and ‘hard’. It reminded me of the same energy I felt while watching Marianne Williamson talk. I thought to myself: they must have a similar knowing, it’s as simple as that.

Below are both videos. Both videos are excellent. They dive deep into many timely issues. Marion focuses her talk on creativity and leadership, while Caroline focuses on humility and grace. In the bigger picture, their words are painting the same image. The reason our society is in trouble, is because we haven’t seen the connection between creativity, leadership, humility and grace. I watch these videos because it’s important to make that connection. It’s equally important to share it. But what’s even more important is to live it. Awareness is the first step. Always.

    Aimee!! This is wonderful and right on and in time! Thank you for being you and sharing your beautiful light! I am just back from Tulum and wore your yoga beads while there. I am intrigued by their powerful energy. I know you said it was a long story but can you share a bit with me? Peaceful day –

    • Hi JC! :)
      The mix of beads, Quartz Crystal & Rudraksha seeds, are traditionally symbolic in India for Shiva & Shakti. Shiva is symbolized in the Rudraksha, and Shakti in the Quartz Crystal. You can read more about the energy of Shiva & Shakti here:

      The tassel is hand-dyed silk, and made from old threads. The OM symbol on the front of the tassel is sterling silver 925, as well as the thick loop that is attached to the tassel.
      I made the entire mala (yoga/meditation beads), all from various malas & pieces I got while studying in India. All pieces used to make the mala are from Rishikesh. You can read about Rishikesh here:

      So hang on to that mala! :) It’s a good one. And you won’t find another one like it in the world. It’s handmade with love, and it holds lots of history & symbolism.
      Happy spring! And thanks for supporting my shop. All sales go to making my way to living on the land and documenting the process after I arrive and begin to work on it as a homesteader living off-the grid. So I really appreciate it, and I continue to get closer to my goal. Thanks JC! I’m grateful.
      Love & thanks,
      Aimee
