Awaken To Your Deeper Self

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...

Helping vs. Saving

I've recently found myself conversing with clients on a very important topic, which so important I want to share in depth about it. Certain people have a knack for wanting to help others, and if you are one of them, you might find yourself in relationships where the other person needs your support, heavily and often. With joy you may give them support, feeling valuable and worthwhile as you are so...

I am that, too

When we deeply react negatively to an experience or a person, its always worth asking yourself, am I rejecting that same energy in myself? If there wasn't a sore spot to poke, that person's behavior, words, or actions might not bother us so much. We might not get engaged, roped in, caught up in having a strong opinion. If something makes us want to run screaming the other direction, its worth look...

Healing the Ancestral Tree Whilst Healing Yourself

Today during a session with a client, he expressed having chronic back pain in part of his back. I asked him to close his eyes and feel into that part of his body, asking what the energy is, and he discovered it was the energy of "fear of the unknown" and a "deep sadness".  We uncovered the origins of this fear, how its manifested in his life, keeping him reaching for safety while also holding him...

Healing Limiting Core Beliefs & Shifting Perspectives

I had a client come in recently sharing the experience of not feeling seen or loved growing up, and finding themselves as an adult continuing to have this feeling, surrounded by people they feel don't truly see them, nor can they ever seem to really find people who love them. This is an example of how as a child we formulate what reality is about via our developing human brain, and take in what is...

Getting High Culture

The other day, I was reflecting on some of my past experiences in two seemingly disparate communities I used to be a big part of, years ago. Then it hit me. They weren't so different afterall. Both communities were built around the prospect of creating the most high-vibration, loving, and intentional community each was capable of creating. Neither were sustainable. Why? Because both communities we...
