30 Days of Prayer : Violence

Happy Friday! Today’s prayer and meditation really moved me. As I start to step out into a leadership role to build community, I am starting to think about the people that I have met and the stories they have shared with me. The stories that stand out the most are the most challenging moments of…

30 Days of Prayer : Move Mountains

I’m in an interesting waiting period. I gave myself the month to move so that I do not feel rushed. I also have given myself time to say goodbye to friends and the life that I have known for the past 7.5 years in LA and 12.5 years in my former career. I’ve been really…

Prayers Guided by the Universe

I am moving. It is happening in only 25 days. I left space, these past three moths, for my life or the universe to keep me in Los Angeles. Every time I meditated on it, it was affirmed that it is time for me to move. Even towards the middle of February, I started to…

Marriage: Overexposure

I’m currently in a month long meditation on Marriage. I was ecstatic to realize, in February 2016, I worked through common fear most people have around marriage. What perplexed me was having that realization as a single, non-coupled, non-dating woman. Three months later, I was t-boned by the truths that challenged societies image and ideas of marriage, which…

Wisdom Wednesday #76 – Keep the Spark Alive

  How we relate to our friends is, in someways, the groundwork for how we relate to our romantic partners.  How we treat ourselves speaks to how we allow others to treat us. I’m currently in a spiritual discussion/ meditation/ deeper analysis on marriage. Both love and relationship are part of the foundation an ideal marriage. There is…

I’m Thankful For: Clarity

I have worked on location three times in six years. My earlier experiences on location each pointed me towards an area of my life that I needed to explore further. This current experience has brought overall clarity in all aspects of my life, specifically in the areas that I have worked on these past three…

Mindful Monday #99 – Not Afraid

Working on location has been so insightful and it is one of the best things that I didn’t know I needed. I did not want to work on location for three years because I knew it would be more demanding. I was right. Work has been more demanding then I anticipated. However, so much has…

Mindful Monday #98 – Distance

Today marks three out of six days that I have been on location. The experience of distance at this time intrigues me. I have played with the idea of moving for sometime. I’ve even set the intention to the universe that I am willing to move, if/ when and where I need to move, to…

New Strength

This week has been very, very busy and challenging. I haven’t had a lot of me time since I have been on location. Each day I noticed myself getting irritated with aspects of my work environment. My department supports every department on this move and we are understaffed. There really is not enough time or…

The Answered Prayer

I used to pray a lot when I was a kid. I was raised to pray formal prayers and rarely did I make those prayers personal. There was a period of my early adulthood where I didn’t pray as often and over time I stopped. The practice just faded over time. In the past five…

Called to Rest

I’m sitting in a Starbucks in the southwest as I write. Life is simpler, easier. Miles away are the busy, crowded streets of Los Angeles. I am home. I have fond memories here and I come back often to see my family and friends. I am here to center myself and gain clarity for my next…

Mindful Monday #87 – One More Round

This weekend was a little over whelming. I am enjoying the current state of my life and the fruits of all my labor. I was able to catch up with a lot of friends that I haven’t seen in months. It was so good to see everyone. There is a bit of sadness in my…

Adventures in Facing Your Fears

I hit the ground running and I already faced a gigantic fear, since my birthday. It lead me to face two more fears, one per week, which are connected and build on each other. These fears stem from a larger fear that popped up this summer. This particular fear was delicate with me, it didn’t…
