Energetic Limbo

Energetic Limbo

Indecision can feel like death by 1,000 paper cuts. The back and forth consumes your mental, physical and emotional energy. A lot of it. You don’t want to close yourself off from the potential of something else coming through. You’re not quite at yes. It feels safer...

A Contrast in Boundaries

A Contrast in Boundaries

What do you do when an open space really isn’t open? This was a quandary I recently faced at one of my favorite places on a trip back from Mt. Shasta. In the lawn area of a local hotel is a beautiful labyrinth, one that I've walked each time I visit. I stopped by a...

Acceptance – From a Different Perspective

Acceptance – From a Different Perspective

The implication and a definition of acceptance is one of approval. Hmmm. What if we instead changed acceptance to one of acknowledgment? Flipping it on its head as it were. I’m a firm believer of “acceptance doesn’t mean agreement,” and quote it in my first book. We...

The Layers We Carry

The Layers We Carry

Every time you experience an annoyance, a hurt, a betrayal, an argument or some other negative event, and the emotion from that event isn’t fully cleared, another layer of negative energy is stored in your body. Layer over layer is built up within you. Each one of...

The State of You

The State of You

There’s a lot of noise right now. And a lot of uncertainty. So much so, that it’s driving us to try to turn off the world. Turn off FB. Turn off the news. But when we turn off the physical noise of FB and the news, what we have left to look at is ourselves. So, we...

You Are Safe + a guided meditation

You Are Safe + a guided meditation

Even though we're in a state of limited travel, it feels like life has been turned upside down. The world is swirling at an even faster pace, and little feels within our control. On both sides of stay home / don’t stay home, there's lots of opinions and there’s been a...

The Energy of Our Torment

The Energy of Our Torment

Across the way from where I live is a beautiful river. Many days I walk along it for inspiration or to just be with nature. A few days ago, the thought came to me, “Are we torturing ourselves by delaying the obvious?” Wow! We as humans don’t like change. Sometimes...

What Do You Know To Be True?

What Do You Know To Be True?

There can be two people standing in a room and at least three truths. Your truth, their truth, and the truth between the two of you. All three are right. It’s a beautiful and messy entanglement. The unfortunate thing in society today is, we're made to feel that if...

What Reflection Do You See?

What Reflection Do You See?

When you look at pictures of yourself, now and at an earlier age, what do you see? Go beyond your physical attributes and feel into the energy of the pictures. Maybe even close your eyes for a moment. What is the journey telling you? Is there something you’ve been...

Healing Your Younger Heart

Healing Your Younger Heart

A friend recently posted a letter on social media. A letter written by her younger self to her absentee parent. Asking to be acknowledged and openly expressing that she didn’t feel loved. Reading this broke my heart. So many of us carry the scars related to what we...
