FLASHBACK: The Big Shift

From my old journal: September 3, 2014 – Los Angeles • It was the scariest, saddest time of my life. I was beyond weak physically and spiritually and had to dig DEEP down to find the last drops of energy to do it. There’s almost no feeling that didn’t come up for me during that time. Fear, sadness, disappointment, hopelessness, pain, heartache, loss, yearning, anger, wonder…

This is Me: Real and Raw

For today all I can do is write. Sometimes the weight of the world, as we call it, feels debilitatingly heavy. Today I am having a really difficult time being in a body. The ache of the sadness is so strong, I feel the pressure on my chest, in my heart. It reaches up my neck into my throat, it burns. My belly is tight as I work to breathe through the tears. Why is life so...

This is a massive responsibility.

There were just always other places I was being called to explore, and I just figured, I’ll get there eventually… For about a year now, the words 'Mexico City' have been coming into my energy field. Meaning, I keep hearing about it from others, how…

The Truth About the Holidays

While the holidays are a joyful, wonderful time, hopefully full of lots of love and laughter, this time of year can also bring many challenges. Energetically there can be a heightened sense of anxiety around all the travel plans and anticipated time with family, physically our bodies are processing more than usual – whether it be stresses or foods – mentally our…

No More Hiding

So I've been in "hiding" for a bit. Not really, but sort of. After years of living in a way that put others before---I mean way before---myself, I needed some time just for me. I needed to go inward. Reconnect. Nourish myself. Cry, sing, dance, laugh, just be. Be in my own company, my own space, my own quiet, creative world---a place of peace and safety. One that I used to access so easily as a child.
