Tune #52 – Might Not Like Me

Last week was challenging. I had an aha moment last Tuesday night, that I did not give the full space it needed to breathe. I woke up the next day to a new aha moment, which demanded immediate attention and expression. My Wednesday was spent being gentle to myself, slowing down and taking it easy. In school, I learned…

Tune Tuesday #51 – By the Way, I Forgive You

“By the Way, I Forgive You” this line, from the song Every Time I Hear That Song by Brandi Carlile, echoed in my mind immediately after I first heard the song. There is something about her voice, coupled with the melody and the lyrics that sounds so familiar. In fact, when I first heard the song, I…

Mindful Monday #176 : The Right Step

What will you do next? I hate that question because it’s such a Western question to ask. We live in a country of doers where time is valued for the money you make aka time equals money. People are perceived to only have value when they are adding to the bottom line for themselves or…

The Legacy of Mom

Two years ago I did an ancestral meditation and a womb healing with a Shaman. The image below reminds me of the womb meditation because I learned that when a baby is born they are born with all their eggs. This means that we have each been in the wombs of our grand mother’s which…

Redefine You

We are often defined by what we do, not who we are.

Year of You

I am a few hours away from what I call the year of you. This journey I am about to embark on has officially been nine months in the making, unofficially four years in the making and in reality it has taken the span of my life to date. Every aspect of myself and life…

All Signs Point to Yes

I’ve been crying a lot lately. There are many moments where I stop to catch my breath. I have moments of disbelief at the obstacles I have faced and have overcome. I can clearly remember what it felt like to be so lost and feel so alone at times. Oh, the fears I have released…

Tune #47 – How Far I’ll Go

Why do we do what we do? This is an age old question that has intrigued social science scholars to continually study our thoughts, habits, human interactions, family dynamics, child development etc. to gain deeper understanding of people. While there is an abundance of scholarly knowledge, what if their is a spiritual component that we can…

Mindful Monday #171 – Don’t Lose Your Zest

2017 was filled with several challenges. I wrote vaguely about some of these challenges in a few posts, others I kept private and shared with a handful of friends. I was given a breath before each challenge and I am thankful for each breath I was given. I didn’t have a lot of energy or…

Mindful Monday #170 – Be Your Own Role Model

It’s Monday! By the time you read this I will be wrapping up a 4 day silent meditation at Joshua Tree. Yes, that is right I am currently at a 4 day silent meditation! I can’t believe it either! Something shifted in the fall of 2016. Around that time, I realized I would be okay…

I’m Thankful for: Courage

Somewhere within in me is a fear to speak at this time. A lot of wounds have been open this year at a very large public scale in both our country and the world. Many of us may be treading lightly to avoid inviting conflict and/or inflicting pain on ourselves and others. You may feel…

When Did We Grow Numb?

I’ve been carrying sadness in my heart. When I focus on what lead to this sadness I get angry, and by the end of the retelling of the story or when I recall that moment, sadness comes over me again. On Monday, I wrote about frustrations that are calling me to reboot my life to…

I Haven’t Been my Best Self lately.

I haven’t been my best self lately. This year has been the perfect balance between yin and yang, dark and bright, heavy and light and good and bad. In other words, this year has been neutral. I have been neutral. The light, bright and good has been my evenings and weekends filled with rest, family,…

I Dreamt About an Ex…

I woke up profoundly changed, about a month ago. This change occurred while I was asleep having, what at first felt like a nightmare, but in actuality it was a dream. Over seven years ago I ended a relationship that went on longer than it should have. I was young, naive and I did not know…

Wisdom Wednesday #82 – If Romantic Comedies Were Real

It’s Wednesday! I came across todays Wisdom during my marriage meditation. That meditation was eyeing because of the wisdom that showed up everywhere I turned. Today’s wisdom popped up during that specific meditation and it was just by chance that I saw it. Growing up, women over men are raised to believe in fairy tales. One…
