How To Give Yourself A Powerful Gift

Can you believe it? The turn of the seasons has arrived, bringing new possibilities into our lives right now!

It’s been a rough few months for so many amazing souls. Somewhere between the exceptionally long winter and the head-spinning news cycle, we almost forgot Spring was coming. But here it is! With a beautiful opportunity to see and feel the energy shifting.

I’ve learned a lot that I can’t wait to share with you.
For now, I offer you one very specific gift.
Throughout the turmoil of winter, this is the gift that has kept me steady.
Consider this a blessing from the Goddess.

Lost Your Joy? How To Find Your Happy!

find your joy It’s time to reconnect with joy!
Sweetheart, listen up:
YOU belong. YOU are important. YOU touch the lives of people around you in ways you can’t begin to imagine.  YOU are a force for good, a node of Divine connectivity enriching our greater experience, and I LOVE YOU.

 

You and I are among the amazing souls showing up and caring deeply about ways to create alchemy in your lives…but we aren’t necessarily embodying this knowledge. Too many bright spirits are sharing a feeling of being profoundly isolated…like they just don’t belong anywhere in this world.

Today I’m taking a stand to help you reclaim your joy by connecting with your greatest physical ally:

Want to Reclaim Your Health? Speak Your Truth Now!

reclaim your truthThis is the truth I never thought I’d tell.

I offer it to you as inspiration and encouragement to reclaim your health.

A winter child born with a propensity for Seasonal Affective Disorder, I used to DREAD this time of year. The 30-day window between Solstice and my birthday has been fraught with challenges.

Lest you think it can’t be that bad, here’s a sampling:

My grandfather’s suicide right before Christmas. The death of my only true childhood friend on my 12th birthday. Severe postpartum depression. Repeated bouts of suicidal ideation. Biochemical storms and precious little outer light in my favored northwestern climes left me exhausted before the season began.

This time was known only as THE GAUNTLET.

How To Heal Your Heart By Making Love To The Sun

 

heal your heartReady to heal your heart by making love to the sun?  (or….Why I sunbathed topless in 55 degree weather on Election Day )I have a confession to make today.

I voted by mail on November 3rd, and had a last minute client reschedule, so I was unexpectedly FREE during the afternoon of our U.S. Election Day.

I had an hour and a half before picking up the kids from the bus, and I felt the urge to DO SOMETHING with a chance of helping our country – and our world.

Watching the craziness mass media was showcasing was clearly not an option.
So I asked myself (as I’ve learned to do daily), “Honey, what do you want?”

I Surrender My Heart To Tears Of Gratitude

Gratitude fills my heart and mind today. May this intimate peek into my life bring nourishment for your soul.

I want to remember this moment.

There are tubes everywhere – attached to his hands, leg, face…and more. Bringing life giving fluids and oxygen, helping to circulate blood, carrying toxins away.
I have been strong.

I did not wring my hands while he was in surgery.
I sat in the wide, sunlit windowsill.
I breathed. In…and out…and in again.
I prayed. I meditated. I felt the love of our invisible energetic allies.
I talked to the fairies in the garden outside my window.

Be Seen and Held in a Space of Love

I’ve been making people cry this week.

Not that I WANT to…but it keeps happening.
I share a gem of truth with a beautiful human….and the tears begin to flow.

Honor your healing intuitions

It’s not just with clients, it’s everywhere I go.

Last weekend I met with a group of amazing women.
I received a vision to share with one I’d never met, so I braved up after class and asked if I could speak with her.
It was all good, but sure enough, she began to cry.

A few days earlier, I woke up from a vivid dream with information I KNEW needed to be given to someone I hadn’t actually met.

You have healing intuitions, too (whether you realize it or not), so you can imagine how I felt!

My soul was urging me to contact the new spouse of a teacher I much admire….while my insecurities were trying to talk me out of speaking the truth.
After all, what if this new person thought I was crazy?
Worse yet, what if my mentor was offended and never wanted to work with me again?

How to Embody Your Courageous Spirit Now

embody your courageous spirit

Want to know how to embody your courageous spirit? I challenge you to connect with your bravest self with this simple step:

I’ve been BUSTED – by my 10 year old! Which feels uncomfortable and weird and fills me with pride all at the same time.

My daughters are officially out of school for summer and have lovely swaths of time to themselves. Some of that time was spent raiding the “super secret goodies” my husband and I keep downstairs for our “grown up snacks” – you know, organic bean chips, 77% dark chocolate and the like.

Upon discovering a half bag of chips was missing, we asked the girls to fess up.

To which our youngest stated “….I might have had one – but only one….” (Like that’s actually possible.)

The oldest said “I got into the upstairs bag, but I didn’t even know there were snacks down here!”

You can’t take only one…

So we asked again and our youngest looked us in the eyes and said firmly “Two. I took two chips. That is all.” Which we knew was totally impossible.

How to Feel Better Now with Your Inner Alchemist

keys to feel better nowFeel better now! Discover secrets to connecting with your inner alchemist with this love letter:

Hello My Love, do you want to feel better? This is for you!

It’s been a challenging week around here…maybe for you as well?
I’ve had to throw dearly held plans right out the window in order to make wise decisions. I know I’m not the only one.

Maybe you have a situation right now (or two…or three…) which requires some uncomfortable piloting.

I’ll tell you straight up – adjustments on the fly are NOT my idea of a good time. I’m a huge fan of having a darn good idea about what’s going to happen. Especially when it’s something I’ve worked for. Delightful surprises are most welcome, of course, but not the sucky variety!

Thankfully, I know there are gifts hidden within the…well…sucky parts.
I also know paying attention to a few keys will unlock magic within your life and help you feel better fast.

Here’s the deal.
You have within you an inner alchemist.
It’s true. We all do!
