There are days I feel like a youngster, ready to tackle anything and everything with joy and passion. Other days, the effects of my age seem front and center, ready to remind me with every creak of my bones or new wrinkle I find when I look in the mirror. So which am I?

Originally written for

I’m almost 52 …am I old? I’m not sure, truly I’m not. In olden times I would definitely be considered long lived and have great status and be given great respect for the knowledge and wisdom I have earned during my years of journeying on this planet.

There are days I feel like a youngster, ready to tackle anything and everything with joy and passion. Other days, the effects of my age seem front and center, ready to remind me with every creak of my bones or new wrinkle I find when I look in the mirror. So which am I?

For as far back as I can remember, I’ve loved to read, and to talk. Ah yes, to talk. Most in my family thought I talked simply to drive them, and others, nuts! Truly and totally bonkers. It wasn’t until I reached my 30s that I realized that talking is how I process what is happening in my life, in my world, with others. I “hear” the energy behind words and “feel” what is happening to the person I’m talking to.

As a PDDE (Passion Deficit Disorder Eliminator) and inspirational speaker, I’m dedicated to igKnighting™ the passionately powerful possibilities™ with all whose lives connect with mine, in whatever way that may look. 

Every speaker and every coach/mentor has their own schtick, their own focus and mine is on the words we use to describe ourselves and our situations. Why? Because I believe the words we choose have power, true power, to drive us in one direction or another.

For over 15 years, I’ve studied transformational works, technologies, and tools. The whole schebang. And in each of those items I’ve learned of the power of words over us. In fact, many early cultures, what are often called indigenous cultures; there is great respect for words and their effects on both the speaker and the listener. Many cultures had guidelines, rules, whatever you want to call them, about how to speak to others. How to monitor what you say. When to stay quiet and when to speak. Some cultures believed in the power of words to such a great extent that you had a spiritual name that was only shared with a tiny portion of the people you met, because knowing your spiritual name gave that person total power over you. Talk about believing in the power of words!

I thought about the words used to describe folks who were not necessarily young and spry in years, even if they were in their heart. I saw “old”, “crone”, “wise woman”, “aging”, “elder” and a variety of other words with meanings that didn’t appeal to me.

So I thought on it and one day the term “Silver Madonna” came to me. It felt good and the feedback was interesting…some positive, some not. There was a feel to “Madonna” that didn’t seem to necessarily strike the right tone. Then came “Silver Sages” which felt right and that is what I use now. It stuck. The name feels good and honors who we are but more importantly it is who I’ve become as I’ve traveled this path called “life”.


So what is a Silver Sage? I will tell you in part 2! In the meantime, stop on by and treat yourself to a well deserved Rainbow Meditation.

Go with love and light, hugs and blessings
