An addictive spin on life, love, and the nature of reality
What readers say
“I just finished Moondance and I felt I had to write to tell you how much I loved it. I haven't been able to put it down and felt it totally resonate for me...”– Lynne Franks
“Karen, it's Dee, I had to call and tell you that I've just read the first 119 pages of your book and oh my God it's absolutely incredible... I don't want to put it down, it's your fault. Congratulations, I can't wait for the next page.”– Dee Miller

Why do you feel as if you've regressed?
Why is there so much uncertainty around you now? Why is trusting intuition feel so much harder to do? Get the answer here...
Welcome! I'm Karen M. Black and I'm a Toronto writer and consultant.
Professionally, I have an MBA from the Rotman School of Management.
Some folks know me as a plain language writer and consultant in the Canadian benefits industry.
I've also been on a personal journey around trusting intuition, which I've written about in my novel Moondance, and a few places online.
“...most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become.”– Steve Jobs
Since 2006, I've been trusting my intuition that I should write.
What I've found is that certain people resonate deeply with my words.
I know this because every week, readers write me to say that I have cut to the core of what they were facing in the moment they received my message.
I don't know exactly why this happens. But I do know we're all connected. And I do know that as long as folks are reading, I'll continue to share.
Your feelings and intuition may be telling you that there's something you're meant to do now. Something pulling you forward.
You may be working 9 to 5, knowing that your time is limited. Or, you may have already taken that leap to be an entrepreneur.
Regardless, you've been feeling an urgency lately, a restlessness.
You have a deep desire to live in a more meaningful way now. To give back. To (perhaps) work from home. To touch more people, expressing your unique gifts. Trusting intuition. Answering your calling.
In your private heart, you want to come here to do what you were meant to do.
You've heard that 2012 and beyond represents a shift in universal consciousness. It's true that your sensing and intuition is leading you into a new phase of life.
What you want in your life today, is radically different than what you wanted years ago.
You don't want to be a slave to the 9 to 5. You don't want to be a slave to your net worth (though you like money as it's useful).
You do want purposeful activity that helps people you care about.
You do want to live your life — your way: using intuition, Free to Be.
You've been around and you're used to being sure about your life. You had a plan. And for a while, the plan worked.
But it's as if the rules are changing now. Your heart feels more awake. The leaps you're taking hold more weight, demanding a balance of data and intuition.
In order to launch your Big Dream from your heart into the world, you must nurture your intuition and hone your inner connection. You must cultivate courage: for following your intuition in an logic-driven world isn't for the faint of heart.
You must also be ready to shed outworn ideas. For example - it's critical now that you understand now that SECURITY is created inside yourself first, and that your reality is a reflection of what's in your heart.
Living security from within is just one of many new “rules” ushered in by The Shift we're in. Trusting intuition over data is another.
We're entirely free to play by these “rules” or not. However, if we resist them, we risk attracting more struggle, drama and delays (the “hard” road).
In extreme situations, we might even sabotage opportunities to do what we came here to do.
This universal shift to womans intuition, doesn't come easy for some. After all in business, we've been rewarded generously for using our HEADS and following corporate rules rather than trusting intuition.
Over the years, we may have ignored our inner life and lost track of our HEART'S DESIRES. Talked ourselves our of our intuitive hunches.
And of course, when our HEADS fight with our HEARTS, we feel more and more off track. More restless and unsatisfied.
Trusting intuition at every step is critical now. If you choose to listen to your heart, you're going to be in for a ride. You see, that Big Dream is going unfold in unexpected ways. At each juncture, new layers of your heart will be revealed to you.
Perhaps you'll travel down blind alleys (through which you must pass before the gold is offered). Are you ready for this?
If you decide to engage this path of growth and freedom (however that looks for you), hidden layers of your heart will come to light exactly when you're ready.
If you respond by trusting your intuition, you'll more easily stay on path, and experience less self-doubt.
When you go off track, you'll feel it and know.
And — when you're in a momentum period (I call these “tipping points”) you'll be better able to focus your resources and decide what's next.
Here's what no one told me about my Desire for freedom and living my passion (the definition of which will be different for everyone).
Freedom is not about accumulating the “things” that will take away our Fear.
When we Desire a Big Dream, we will move toward it. We may first face destruction, as the “old way” is removed.
Change will swirl all around you. Answers will come — but in different forms than you imagined.
The journey to Freedom will require trusting intuition. Making decisions, without certainty. Gently facing every fear that comes up.
And believe me, stuff will come up at every stage:
I have heard from hundreds of incredible people from all over the world: I know this is really happening.
How much do you desire your Big Dream? Would it be valuable to fully trust your soul and intuition along the way?
The folks that fully engage the magic of intuition, the flow of creation and meet it with a courageous, open heart, I refer to as Heart Explorers.
In order to fully tap in, we must accept full responsibility for our lives, and also assistance from many sources. As information comes in, we must use intelligent intuition, and discern each piece of information for ourselves.
Have you guessed it? Discernment is about trusting intuition. It's an experience that takes place in your Heart.
Would you like to have a clearer sense of when to follow your intuition? Are you Heart Explorer?
Here's my FREE GIFT and thank you.
It's based on my decade-long experience nurturing my intuition, living my own unique definition of Freedom:
