In the Time Between Worlds

This is my favorite time of year, when the air grows crisp, the nights cool, and change is palpable. It feels like magic in the air, the trees have been whispering all night, and the moon seems more eerie with rippling clouds passing over. I get charged up with electricity but at the same time I turn my attentions inwards, wanting to nest more, be home, read, be creative. The irony is, the ...

Will You Stand Next to Me When I’m Broken?

Will you stand next to me when I’m broken? Or will you go somewhere else - to let me be alone To let me be private To let me grieve, to be shaken, to be less than perfect So your vision of me isn’t marred So you can remember the good times Me healthy Me laughing. Or can you stand next to me when I’m broken And remember me laughing And see me in tears, voice shaking Body broken Scar...

What the Law of Attraction doesn’t tell you, that you really need to know to make it work

The Law of Attraction has risen in popularity over the past couple decades, similar to the philosophy as I learned: Thoughts are Creative. This is a beautiful, powerful, direct way of working with energy. What you focus on, you attract. What you think about, you create. Sounds simple, right? It's true - partially. Having high anxiety? You are likely to co-create your fears, or live like they ar...

My heart goes out to everyone touched by the Orlando shootings

Awaken To Your Deeper Self
My heart goes out to all the souls in the Orlando shooting. To those who have fallen, to their families, to those who were wounded, or scared. To all those experiencing trauma from this experience. My heart goes out to all of you. This is something we can heal only by facing it, understanding it, and embracing the fact that if there are wounded, angry, hateful people walking our stre...

The More You are Conscious, the Less You Can Avoid

Classic Mercury Retrograde. Yup, that's my car in the picture. The path of expanding consciousness gets quicker and more direct the further along you go. Healers don't get off easy, FYI. I think we get hit harder, faster, and more, if we don't take the bull by the horns. For instance, here's me after driving 2 hours and a hundred miles with a car having trouble, trying to get back home, breakin...

When “Yes” is my inner guidance, and when its something else

A client remarks the other day "I'm not sure I can trust my inner guidance. Its led me into so much trouble!" This is a really worthy topic to pull apart. So settle in, and feel into this as we go along. How many of you have felt a "yes!" about something, got totally excited, and found yourself in a mess later, maybe a big falling out, the wrong relationship, or otherwise in hot water, o...

I knew

Yes, you heard right. I knew. This is the part I had a hard time admitting in my last post. I'd admitted it to a couple people I trusted, however, I only skirted around it in my last post, saying that I wasn't listening. I mentioned my fear. But I didn't mention that I flat out heard the words a few times "He's going to throw you." I didn't mention I flat out heard the words "Go get your landlady'...

Slow Down and Listen

Many people are surprised to learn that I got thrown from a horse. Yes, me, a sensitive energy worker, thrown from my horse. Guess what? I was going too fast. I wasn't listening. And I wasn't listening to that niggly little sense of fear, which was my intuition telling me something was off, and I disregarded it as "just fear", since my horse had run off on me recently. (there is a very subtle diff...
