I’m Thankful For: My Thanksgiving Blessing

This year has been full. I have had a lot of insights, realizations, deeper understandings and perspective shifts. All that I have studied and worked toward, for the past five years, is coming together. For the first time, I am able to see how I have grown as a speaker and facilitator and as an…

Mindful Monday #182 – Significant Relationships

Happy Labor Day! This morning started unplanned and showed me that beauty often emerges from that space. I woke up naturally this morning at 5:30am. I hoped my body would go back to sleep, but I started to reflect on moments and understandings of my year of you. About a month ago, my mom asked…

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…

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…

On the Rise

I was nervous as I got ready this morning. The thought “I’m not suppose to be here” resounded in my mind. Not here as in this transition, but here as in the training. I knew I was about to step into a space filled with psychologist, therapist, social workers and me. I am not a…

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…

30 Days of Prayer

It’s March! The year is flying. This may be the fastest year I have ever experienced. I really enjoyed my Love and Attachment meditation last month. I have so much joy in my heart from it, sitting with love was amazing and understanding it deeper is everything. I am proud of that meditation. I felt…

Wisdom Wednesday #86 – What Does Love Look Like?

It’s Wednesday, February 28th and the last day of my Love and Attachment Meditation, which was exclusive to Instagram. I am both excited and a little sad that this is the end of this meditation series. When I set out to meditate daily on Love and Attachment, I was unsure. Could I meditate on this…

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 #167 – Waiting on an Answer

I have been waiting on “The Sign” of what to do next for over a year. I have been on a journey of deep healing, each step of the way more and more needed healing emerged. Through facing what needed healing, I gained a deeper connection and understanding of the Universe. Now that I am…

Tune #46 – The Love Wouldn’t Die

Have you ever felt like you were going to die? Or like you were dying? I am not talking about putting yourself in harms way, having a terminal illness or hypochondria. I’m talking about death to your former self or the life that you know/ knew. This may sound, way out of left field, in…
