According to Plan

Happy Friday! It’s almost two months since I moved. The entire month of May was defined by rest. How I spent my May, was not how I wanted to spend it. However, I surrendered to what May became and allowed my body to rest in the ways it needed. In June, I visited my sister…

Mindful Monday #178 – What is Right?

Breathe in. Breathe out. Breathe in. Breathe Out. We have had a lot of challenging news, over the past few weeks. It feels like it’s all becoming far too common. I was trained in Level 1 of Trauma Resiliency in March, and since then trauma is another lens in which I see the world. I hope…

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.

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 gave 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 efficient…

Mindful Monday #175 – Play Ball

I know I made the right choice. I know I am on the right path. This part of my life is over. Last week, I felt this finality for the first time and I have felt it every day since. I knew I was leaving, since October, and it gave me time to say my goodbyes….

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…

I’m Thankful for: Seeing Beyond My Limitations

This morning, I woke up just like every other day. However, today is not like every other day because yesterday I wrapped the last movie of my career. I wanted to go out and celebrate this milestone, instead I went home exhausted and in need of rest. I have a cold. It is typical for…

Mindful Monday #174 – Driven By Greed

It’s an ugly word, with an unflattering meaning, yet more and more people are dancing with G R E E D and getting into bed with it these days. The desire to have power over others via money, taking others power or silencing is driven and rooted in the ego. The Ego’s Mantra, when it…

Mindful Monday #172 – Your Untapped Strength

Happy Monday! I stepped into my 2nd yoga class of 2018. Class provided space for a humbling and empowering realization that I did not see it coming. During the last few hours, on the last day of my silent meditation, which was the first day of the new year, I hurt my right foot. We required…

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…
