Hard choices, easy life. Easy choices, hard life.

There’s a lot happening in the world today. Me? I’ve got the pleasure of spending time with a small, but mighty, gathering of women for the 1st Enlighten Gathering.

In a world where there is so much that pushes us into our own growth; where we constantly move back and forth between information thrown at us and our own need to listen within, we need time to gather and move inward.

There are a lot of personal […]

The Intersection of Pride, Wholeness and Joy.

This past weekend I was sitting in meditation, and fumbling around with this internal edge around pride. The message from my spirit was, “You need to live your life more loud and proud… take up more space… show up with more umph.”
Umph.
And then my guides jumped in and flashed an image of me painting my feelings about this word, “Pride” that I was struggling with as means of creating a different level of awareness around […]

What Would You Say to Your Younger Self?

If you could write a note to your younger self, only using 3 words, what would you say?

I saw this question the other day and my immediate response was: Get. Out. There.
That’s the theme for this year for me. More activity… an explosion of activity.
Not just physical activity (although way more of that) but activity in my life – with my work, my community, and my friends.

Despite always being a bit of a rebel leader […]

Why That Activation Into a Higher Vibration Won’t Solve Your Problems.

I have a weird phrase that I use to describe my work: “slow-cooked healing.”

That popped out of my mouth a few years back when I was talking about the feel of my work… how I like to show up.

In a world where there are a ton of internet posts promising quick fixes, “rock star” coaches telling you how to create a 7-figure business if you “just do this,” and even healers offering “activations” […]

Micromanaging My Vision

I’ve been micromanaging my vision.

I got pulled into the idea that to create, I needed to know exactly what it was I wanted — not how it will come to me, but what I was truly asking for.

I’m not sure why I got stuck in this lately. I never ask my clients to get that specific. Over and over I can see when their energy locks in when they aligned to their bigger dream. My own […]

Ho’oponopono in the Dark

This morning I was plunged into the darkness. Ok, the power went out. But it was 5 am and dark. There was no way I was getting out of bed now.

So there I was… with my thoughts. “I’m sorry, please forgive me, thank you, I love you.”
Yes. I was Ho’oponoponoing.
Ho’oponopono is a simple and profound forgiveness practice. Now, if you are a true practitioner of this process, please know that I butcher this some and mesh it in with […]

Divine Timing.

Divine timing. I’ve never been very good with that.

I woke up to this last little holdout of snow on my lawn today.

My first instinct was to think, “Ah, the last holdout. This little bit of snow just won’t let go.”

Peeking at this from my kitchen table, I started to feel into this sense of tension… restriction. As if I could feel this little dollop of ice griping to control its situation.
Oh, wait. That might be me.
I […]

My Healing Morning Ritual

I have a morning ritual where I sit at my kitchen table with a cup of coffee and I think about things. I don’t think about what it is I need to do that day or how I need to go about this or that. What I’m thinking about is how I need to be living my life.

My morning ritual is about leaning into the energy of my inner experience. I go looking for the […]

Follow Your Joy

A friend of mine recently came back from a pilgrimage. Sitting together over a cup of chai, she told me that more than ever she feels committed to only doing the things that truly inspire her. She’s only willing to give her attention and energy to things she values and what brings her joy.

Twice now since she has come back she has said this to me. Both times I have felt my entire Being stir.

Everything […]

Tis the Season. Your Emotional Stuff is Going to Come Up.

This is the time of year where I often feel my most creative. It’s definitely where I do my deepest healing work.

Maybe it’s because I look at the year behind me and see what I did or didn’t do. Maybe it’s Nature, calling me into the darkness. Maybe it’s Mercury retrograde.

I suspect it’s all of the above. We are in no shortage of energetic experience to take us deep into our healing. I think if […]

Energy Work. It’s Not Always Pretty

Ah yes. Energy work. It’s not always warm and yummy.
Sometimes it opens us up, turns us raw, pushes huge balls of blocked energy through tiny channels that physically hurts… but it is always moving us toward balance and flow.

I got one of those emails today that always makes my stomach clench some. The note where I get asked why someone feels worse today, when normally when they do anything energy related they just feel […]

Art, creativity and your manifesting prowess

A while back I started hearing this inner voice asking me to draw… to create more art. It was something that as a kid I did all the time.

But somewhere along the way, I stopped creating art. It seemed like if it didn’t have a particular purpose, then what was the point?!

I did create process art to work through my emotional ups and downs, but art for the sake of just making art wasn’t really […]
