Looking for a few brave souls with power of resistance stories. And yes, all who read this post qualify!
Watching posts, reading blogs, I have noticed an epidemic of wing clipping. It seems many if not all women have had their wings clipped, at one time in our lives or another. Some several times. This
limitation although dramatic is temporary. Remember, over time those wings, when allowed to grow back- can let you fly again.
Flying is instinctual in women.
Yes, YOU GOT WINGS!
Wing clipping is a technique that is used to keep birds as pets, domestic. To limit their ability to fly so that they cannot hurt themselves or get away outdoors. It is a common practice. After reading some Blogs and Facebook posts the past few days- I have felt a sense of deeper connection to the women who are sharing their personal stories about growth. I intuitively saw the image of a bird with its wings being un-usable, Wing Clipping, and I remembered that I think wings can grow back- and yes they can. Women are so resilient. If we are in a situation in our lives where we feel limited- it is only temporary because we can grow out of it and into a better version of ourselves. In this way, personal growth is like wings growing back after being clipped.
Flying is instinctual in women.
Yes, YOU GOT WINGS!
Power to the Winged Women reading this post!
I am sharing with you a part of what I have been working on the past few weeks. I am writing a book proposal to submit to Hay House Publishing. I am able to enter into a contest because I attended the Writers Workshop in April. Along with many other talented writers I am busy working away to throw my hat in the ring for this opportunity.
I have had a lot of resistance about writing this book now. I figured it was a story for some day. It is inevitable that I share it. And now, I am beginning the process of making it manifest. Likely I will self publish next year or find another publisher who would like to embrace it and share it with others.
It is a deeply personal process, a difficult process to write and feel and release all this onto paper. The purpose is greater than myself and that is how I am able to keep at it, to do it. Many boxes of tissues are being added onto my "office supplies" list this month.
I envision the book to be in 3 parts, Part I, A Daughter's Love (the story about my Dad's death), Part II Awakening, Opening the Flood Gates (about discovering my psychic gifts), and Part III The Gifts. (3-4 gifts from this process with a focus on your own life story and the gifts within your journey)
This is an excerpt from Chapter 2. My Blue Mask and Purple Gloves.
If you do not know my backstory you can listen to the audio I recorded about it on my About Bridgette page.

Another Blog Post under the title, You can’t make this stuff UP! OH MY Psychic life with Bridgette Doerr
Today I got a surprise gift in the mail. A book. It was sent to me by my travel companion for the Hay House Writers Conference earlier this year. Not just any book, but the very
book that I read when I awakened to my psychic gifts. The very book, “The Gift” by Echo Bodine. 9 yrs later this same book shows up at my doorstep. And on the same day-
no kidding- that I had written a table of contents for my book, The Gifts of AIDS (working title- I thought it would be cool to honor the book that helped me ). From the Writers Conference, I am giving the opportunity to enter a contest to submit a proposal for a big prize and a shot at a publishing contract. I had been wrestling with my resistance about making the time to do it, especially now as my business is starting to grow, and at the end of the summer all 4 kids home all day long, just seemed unthinkable.
But yet, there I was thinking it, Should I, Could I?
It came up in my appointment with my business coach and mentor today because it was weighing so on my heart.
I am not one to pass up an opportunity, even a long shot is better than no shot. What’s that
saying? You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take. Can’t argue with that logic.
And so it comes, the book. THE book. Not just any book, the thing that kept me sane as I saw spirits, talked to angels, did readings and hung out in the in-between chatting with dead relatives.
It’s all such a blur early on, you know since I opened the flood gates and all. I am grateful for who I am, for how I am, and that I am being the spirit in human form that God, Creator,
Source, sent here. On a mission with a purpose and a passion for all of this life. All of it.
I am so overwhelmed with this so obvious message of support and divine guidance for me. So clear. Yes. I will do it.
All I can do is bow my head, as tears pour down my face, and with a gentle whisper say, "Thank you."
Here is an excerpt, something I had written after the conference that I thought might be a good preface.
“" You are the Good I gave to the World." A quote gifted to me from my
Dad. Channeled through on Saturday morning April 27, 2013. As I stood before the tall glass windows overlooking the rich orange brick of the fancy hotel across the street, I received this message. Moments before walking swiftly trying not to be noticed, with my head down unstoppable tears flowing as I stared as the floral carpet, searching for the wood paneling of the door that would lead me out of the crowded auditorium. when I hit the opening of the hallway, the sobbing grew like a billion balloons released into the summer sky, a celebration of freedom.
I found my way to a private corner and I allowed it. I was open, I was after all warned this morning in the steamy bathroom, that the reason for the unexpected anxiousness was because "this was important" being here, at the Hay House Writers Workshop was "very important" for me. And yet I still am not convinced I want to be an author of a book. And the resistance speaks still. I was open, I was willing to show up and be present for whatever I needed from this experience. It did not take long, maybe the first 2 hour mark of the first day, when the flood gates opened and I found myself with the gift.
Think about your life.
You are the good in this world.
How do you believe this to be your truth?
I share these gifts with you in full awareness of the power of loss, awakening and the soul’s defining moment. “

Check out my recent interview! I am part of the Goddess Gossip column from Goddess Gossama Series with Krystal Alexander-HIllie. This week! Tell me if you learn something new about me or something that surprises you.
It was starting to feel like I was in a kennel, sitting in one spot hovered over my computer at the kitchen counter. It was going on 3 days in create/share/receive mode With a cramped neck and sore back I decided it was time to take the day off. I am sure many of you can relate!
When I asked my son what we should do today, he asked if there were Giraffe's and Elephants at the Zoo. I said Yes and so we went to the Zoo to see a Giraffe.
While at the Zoo, I found some strong totems presenting to us. I have some pictures to share with you along with links to the meaning of these beautiful animal guides.
Think of a situation that you are wrestling with and ask which totem below would be most helpful to you. It may be one of them listed here or another.
