I love a good day off.

Doesn’t everybody?

For me, a “good day off” is when I can relax every part of my being. My breathing feels deeper, the sky seems bluer … you get the idea.

We made a point of getting out of the house early one morning to take a day trip to the ocean. Before we left, I asked:

“What intention would you like to set for our trip today?”

He thought for a few seconds and with a mischievous look on his face, he replied:

“Buffalo.”

I laughed and thought…buffalo?  OK. Buffalo. What the heck! That’s so like him. A good challenge. Innocent fun.

I was game (so to speak).

It doesn’t matter that we are on the mid-Atlantic coast, where the buffalo are famous for not roaming.

We drove over two hours to the beach. Our conversation was light and fun. I kept my eyes open for buffalo. He kept his eyes on the GPS.

The ride was beautiful. We found a rather crowded beach for a Tuesday. Both of us prefer a less crowded venue, so we found a good lunch spot and thought about how we’d spend the rest of the day.

After lunch, we headed north for the state park. We walked on the uncrowded beach, examining shells and rocks and the many horseshoe crabs. We talked to the fisher folk. Spot was the popular catch of the day.

We asked passers by if they could tell us what kind of seagull we were seeing. He is from the Pacific Northwest and he had never seen the black-headed gull.

We learned that most people just group all gulls together. They had no idea what kind of gull we were seeing.

Just when we were about to call it quits on the survey, we asked one more person and bingo!

The Napoleon Gull.

Our day on the beach was winding down.  We walked back to the car, deciding to take a slightly different route back. We felt feeling confident we couldn’t go far wrong with the GPS.

Once we got through the commercial beach roads and their outlet stores, our ride home was just as scenic as before.  We saw lots of thriving green fields, produce stands, beautiful clouds, and old farm houses.

We drove by a large field that had a giant irrigation system on wheels. It nearly spanned the length of the field and was made of metal. When you approach one from behind (which I had never done), and you use your imagination, it looks like a dinosaur skeleton at the Smithsonian. Kind of. When I saw that, I (ever the optimist) thought…Well, if we don’t see a buffalo, at least we have seen a ” dinosaur”.

And it was just after that thought that we rounded the corner only to see… a bison farm.

In the background beyond the fence stood not one, but several buffalo large and small. Who knew?

Ah, intentions…

You put them out there and “hold a space” for them without any expectation or forcing or figuring.

It’s always a good idea to go about your day with a your antennae up.

Have you seen your buffalo today?

Testimonials
For many years I have been searching for something. I felt stuck with the same repeating patterns, habits and beliefs. These patterns were ones that I did not desire. I had the urge to break free from them but felt powerless. I have read numerous inspirational books, changed my diet and even worked with an energy healer for several months. While these methods elevated my energy it was not the key towards the shift I desired. I am normally a DIY type of person but realized that this was an area that I could use help with. So in perfect timing I had the opportunity to begin coaching sessions with Lee. Each session is perfectly aligned to exactly what I need in that moment. She is very flexible, supportive and works from her heart. These qualities allowed me to be myself and to be open to receive guidance and move forward. I consider it a miracle what has manifested in the last several months since we have been working together. I moved out of a 14 year job that I was attached to but did not serve me. Simultaneously I received a new job opportunity which is exactly what I desire right now. We sold our first investment property which we had worked on for 3 years. Another investment opportunity manifested effortlessly. These manifestations were something in the past I thought would be difficult and time consuming to achieve. I now have the realization of living a life of my own creation and I chose which direction feels good. Lee is like my tuning fork. She helps me to stay focused on this wonderful path that she helped me to re-discover. Old habits still creep in and Lee helps me to realize them and continue to move past them. Lee is a precious wise soul that puts her heart into helping other’s remember their creative potential. Endless appreciation to you Lee! Norlen Linn Lempster, NH June 2015
