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…

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…

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…

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,…

He Drew Her like a Spiral

In September of 2016, I decided to remain optimistic about marriage. I realized I was ready for marriage, in February of that year. Shortly after that realization friends and strangers, on their own, told me their negative experiences with marriage. Each experience and story was a counter to the narrative that we all know and reinforce to each…

You Have a Choice to Get Off the Train

“It seems like you were on the train.” I told the woman with tired, worn eyes. “On the train?” She asked in a confused tone. In the moments leading up to what she revealed to me, I found myself linking her experience to a similar experience I had over eight years ago. A romantic relationship, which…

Seven Generations of Women

By chance and by choice, I found myself among large communities of women, in 2016. As I followed my curiosity to events, groups and organizations, I gained skills that deepened my spirituality, tools that assisted me in maintaining my health and knowledge and skills that deepened my understanding in both spiritual and wellness communities. We often seek to…

Tune #43 – Marry the Man Today

I am currently meditating on marriage. Last year I realized I was ready for marriage and what came next was a surprising universal counter argument to re-think that desire. Now, I am trying to make sense of the information I learned in classes and through books and personal stories people told me. Traditional values around marriage, dating…
