For the Love of Mercury (and making your art!)

Sunset with Joy and the little sea bird — Ventura Beach, California

Sunset with Joy and the little sea bird — Ventura Beach, California


At the time of writing we’re about midway through the current Mercury Retrograde period, but I’ve been meaning to write about this for a while! I decided to push it out today in celebration of my “Mercury Love-In” Sale (30% off private sessions and the Soul-Fire Code). Hope it helps! Enjoy. :)

The Mercury Retrograde period is generally misunderstood as a period where the challenges of communications and operating on the earth plane are intensified. In truth, this is the very best period for intuitive creative souls to thrive in, because it offers us an opportunity to do our deepest work. It can also help with providing a wonderful sort of energetic force shield from the energies of the world.

While so many others are busy running around like chickens, struggling with getting things done the way they usually do, you have this extra keen ability to operate from an even deeper place than usual. Your true Soul Power is magnified and welcomed into play. Continue Reading →

Do the Work That Matters.

That woman in the red dress — at the Acropolis in Athens


I was burning so hot on all ends I couldn’t see straight. It was this great sadness in my heart that needed to be shared. So I made more art…I was driven, it was good. But the pain was still there and in some ways the pressure was growing even stronger…

I think I speak for at least a few thousand million of us here on earth when I say:

*We’d like to see and know more of who you really are.*

What is the song your spirit cries to be sung? What holds you back from your song? What holds you back from exploring and expressing this Creative Self?

Your heart and soul burn hot. Follow that trail inside to the creative expression your Spirit longs for and you might find something good. Vital. Basic. Necessary… –let these exchanges of personal and creative exploration open the relief valve to your creative furnace. Open the floodgates. Break the flow. Open the words that long to sing in conversation…

with yourself,

with the one you love,

with all of us.


just keep on waiting for the right time.

It’s Never Too Late.

At play in the fields... Kotor, Montenegro

At play in the fields of Love… Kotor, Montenegro —@satyacolombo


It’s never too late to live the life you have imagined. The greatest work has always been created at the edge of impossible. The greatest artists have all found their voice “well past their prime.” The great spiraling galaxies of existence are your playground. Have some fun with it! Start where you are and begin modeling the future you’re stepping into now. Like an architect or painter, your life experience is your palette, your imagination the brush and the world your canvas. Make it count!

Start with what you have. Make some good. Build your dream house and start living in it. Let your life become that marvelous work of art we’ve all been waiting for.

We’re worth it.


No More Eyes Wide Shut — We Must Out-Create the Horror With Creative Strength

eyes wide open

Street art in Athens — October 2014 — #eyeswideopen


The truth of injustice in this world is almost too horrific to look at. Like the Tom Hanks character in Stanley Kubrick’s “Eyes Wide Shut”, the absolutely confounding madness of what we see in our world causes us to wander through our lives in a state of denial or confusion about what’s really happening around us.

In my preface to the forthcoming EDGE FLOW collaborative book project, I wrote:

The thing is— the truth is frightening, ugly…and just plain horrible to face. If you read the world news on any given day, it’s clear that humans are pretty wretched beings. Selfish, self-absorbed, despotic, fundamentalist, racist, sexist, murderers, baby killers and psychopaths. And those among us who are most needed to show up, to step up our game and do what we can to make a difference—the highly creative, empathic, change-oriented, good-hearted, mindful people—we’re often the ones who suffer most deeply from seeing all this. And so we turn away.

How often have you heard these words, or told yourself even: “It’s just too much, I can’t handle it!” Or, “I haven’t watched the news in years, it’s too depressing.” But it’s only because we’re not strong enough in ourselves that we can’t handle this stuff. Because when you have a stronger handle on the truth of who you are, and can stay grounded in that longer, you can really see all this stuff and not let it be a complete headf*ck. We need that, so we can roll up our sleeves and say,

“OK, I see what’s going on — I know I can’t fix it all myself, but my heart is pulling me to do _this_, and I feel pretty strongly that it might make a difference. And I can handle this, I got this….”   

And then you do it. And it does make a difference. And it’s good.

Two Books and a Box of Precious Soul-Fire Gifts From Me and My Friends to You


Last weekend I announced two new books I’m so excited to release to the world, and a special set of pre-order packages for my birthday. Today I’m releasing the SOUL FLOW virtual gift boxes I promised, and I’m super excited — they are epic! Handpicked gems from my friends and luminaries — each resource is like a mini-love bomb and takes about 20 minutes or less to process. And that’s what I wanted — not to overwhelm you with STUFF, but to give you powerful little treasures to jumpstart your FLOW.

Order any of the pre-order book packages by tomorrow, and you’ll get the gift box delivered instantly via email.

SOUL FIRE & FLOW—Big News, Co-Creating Your Reality and Celebrating…My Birthday!

Sunrise at the top of Tres Piedras, New Mexico

Sunrise at the top of Tres Piedras Crags, New Mexico – future home of the Creative Healing Arts Center

The way the universe works, it’s just kinda crazy and so very beautiful…right?

Since arriving in North America a few weeks back I’ve been spending a lot of time finding my roots and opening my heart to dissolve the virtual reinforced steel walls that inevitably want to lock down around me when I return! So many beautiful moments have unfolded in the past month — from Albania to Athens to Stockholm and especially landing on that sacred land in New Mexico just last week — but with those thick hard walls I just wasn’t making a ton of progress in many areas at all…

Then suddenly a couple days back, one day to the next, something shifted. In a seismically big kind of way. Time and everything else was still moving fast as ever, but it was like I suddenly shifted back into the cockpit and traveling along with it. And not getting swept away in overwhelm. What had changed…?

A sprinkle of magic, a splash of intention, and suddenly everything was different…

First I picked up a very special book on ENERGY MEDICINE that inspired me to do a quick scan on my energy field. I was shocked to discover I’d developed an energy block that was causing my whole left RECEIVING side to stagnate, causing total congestion in the flow of energy through me. (It was connected to those steel defense walls upon returning back home.) There are so many different factors that can block up the universal flow, but it’s hard to sometimes pinpoint the problem let alone know what to do about it. With a few clearing sweeps and some good old fashion energy healing I was able to clear the energy and snap back in vibrant good form.

Then I made a decision to bring my imagination and intention into CO-CREATING my reality around my birthday and how I would be approaching not only the day itself, but everything around it, including what I’m bringing into the world over the next couple months.(OK that’s two things and a sprinkle of DIVINE GRACE that made it possible.)

So, that’s what happened, and here’s what I was so graced to come out of it with…

1. I decided on an ACTUAL launch date for my two next books, which I’ve been working on for more than two years. (FINALLY the clarity and FLOW I’ve been waiting months for!)

2. I decided to announce AND pre-release them both ON my bday (After thinking long and hard it just popped as THE most fun and exciting thing I could possibly do).

3. And I decided to plan my birthday: Prepare all this birthday book magic to be ready in time; have a brunch with my family; go out on an afternoon adventure with my friend’s wolf-dog near the sea; invite another long time dear friend to meet me in the evening (and we’ll do a sunset walk!); dinner and maybe some sacred live music in the evening (another friend sent me the perfect invite after I set that intention); reach out to a few more close friends to contribute to a virtual gift bag for my birthday celebrations (plus they all responded with a resounding yes + delivered the goods… WHAT?!)

What made this possible — am I a superhuman? Nope I don’t think so! Am I that person who writes three chapters of their novel before breakfast and then goes out to fight fires + do a little emergency brain surgery operation in-between while taking care of five kids? No!

It’s pretty much just like I said: Clearing the energy to FLOW + Setting intention for CO-CREATION with IMAGINATION and a sprinkle of divine GRACE.

And — surprise! — this is the exact process I’m exploring in the two books I’m Pre-Releasing to the world today. (Two books I’ve been working on for more than two years!)  

Interested in hearing what these book projects are about + how you can have some of this love + magic in your hands with one of my limited time PRE-ORDER BIRTHDAY PACKAGES I put together on this little burst of creative inspiration…? :)

Then you must read on! — Drumroll please…  …………………………………………………………………!

Book 1 – EDGE FLOW: Pushing the Edges of Creativity, Flow and Personal Power for Global Transformation (Release date: January 9th, 2015)

Edge Flow Concept Cover

Edge Flow Cover Concept

This book has more than 30 contributors, with the likes of Danielle LaPorte, Don Miguel Ruiz and Douglas Rushkoff, and I’ve been working on it off and on for several years. It’s epic, and yet TOTALLY concise, FUN to read and easy to put to use in your life. The bigness of this has had me spending many sleepless nights, and I’ve resisted it all the way. But, yeah, it’s SO TIME NOW.


Book 2 – SOUL FIRE FLOW: [Subtitle TBD] (Release date: February 15th, 2015)

Cover Concept (TEST MOCKUP for inspiration!)

Cover Concept (Just a quick TEST MOCKUP I put together for inspiration!)

Both books are part of my new Soul Fire Series, with the third secret title in the series planned for release in 2015.

How I Live and Travel the World With Zero Savings (With Love From Dubrovnik)

“Because you are alive, everything is possible.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

Favorite two pages of my passport

Favorite two pages of my passport

“How do you fund all these adventures around the world?”

I hear this question a lot. People must assume I’m a trust fund baby or something, which couldn’t be further from the truth. I’ve been a nomadic world traveler for two and half years now, and it suits me well — the endless adventure feeds my Soul — but I have to say it’s REALLY hard work too.

In the past two and half years I’ve traveled to more than 15 countries in Latin America and Europe, and lived for at least three weeks in 11 of them. When I find a location that feels right I like to stay for a month or more — I’ve found that’s when the magic and energy of a place really starts to sink in. It also enables me to live affordably and get more work done.

I’ve been searching for my own version of paradise since embarking on this great adventure on February 29th, 2012 (leap year day!). I don’t do boring, but it could have been different. I could have stayed in my cozy mountain getaway in Ashland, Oregon, or dug my heels into one of the many seaside cities near my hometown of Los Angeles.

But then I wouldn’t have been able to live in some of the most breathtaking places in the world — like Lago Atitlan (Guatemala), San Juan del Sur (Nicaragua), Manuel Antonio (Costa Rica), Galapagos Islands (Ecuador), Buenos Aires (Argentina), Stockholm (Sweden), and Edinburgh (Scotland) — I wouldn’t have met my dreamy Ginger, and I definitely wouldn’t have experienced anything near the life of my dreams. (And isn’t that what it’s all about in the end?!). Continue Reading →

Multi-Passionate Must-Haves: 95% Off 30 Books and Courses, 100% Full ‘a Soul

A few years ago, a couple friends of mine partnered to create a bundle of really great, independently produced ebooks and products and offer them in a 72-hour sale. It went smashingly well – with about 1,000 copies sold – and a new business model was born. Inspired by the success and awesomeness of the 72-hour sales, my friend Emilie Wapnick and Michelle Ward decided to put together their own version – specifically for multi-passionate creatives! It’s called

Multi-Passionate Must-Haves!

30 Career/Productivity/Multi-Passionate Products worth $2,000…for just $97

I was honored to be invited to contribute to this collection by a group of wonderful rebel creators, and decided to offer up the SOUL-FIRE CODE (my self-guided *un-course* for Magical Misfits, Rebels, Rainmakers, Dreamers, Movers and Shakers). This course currently sells for $75, and dozens of wonderful and amazing people like you have taken it. So, until Thursday May 22nd and Midnight Pacific time, you can get the SOUL-FIRE CODE plus 29 other AMAZING BOOKS AND E-COURSES, for just $22 extra.

Is this for you? I’ve downloaded the full package and it’s pretty incredible – kind of a no-brainer…
