The Space in Between

I have been sitting in the space in between for a while now. The space of releasing old ways of doing things and creating the new way of being. There have been times when it is invigorating, exciting and living with such curiosity of what is unfolding before me. Then there are times of much frustration, severe discomfort because I cannot fathom what is to come. Questions of "what do I need to

Who Am I?

Returning from a magical couple of days at the beach. Ah the beach....just feel the warmth of the sun on your skin, the ocean breeze blowing through your hair and the sand as it enfolds around your feet. Maybe take a moment to breath in and out with the waves. The moment I arrived my guides began to tell me it was time to let go of a bracelet that I have worn

Embodied Gratitude & Love

I just returned from the most transformational week of my life walking the sacred land around Mt. Shasta, California. It has been 23 years since I went anywhere for over a week by myself. My intention was to completely follow my intuition and connect with a deeper remembrance of who I AM. The only preparations I had made in advance was my flight, accommodations and a rental car. After that, I had not

Strengthening your Intuition

Last weekend I took myself on a 2 day self retreat to the mountains to connect and ground with the changing of the seasons. This time of the year calls me inward as the colors begin to fill the trees in celebration of their slow release to death. As I drew closer to my destination the sun was setting quickly and I knew I would not have cell phone service. Prepared for that,

Summer Solstice

The official first day of summer as we have the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. Ancient civilizations built structures around the world to tap into the solstices as times of great wisdom and alignment. This was the mark to let them know when to plant and harvest crops. Whether we have a garden or not, we can still use this time to pause and evaluate our inner landscape and

Align with the times

As emotional beings, we tend to move in an out of times of ups and downs. Wrestling with things in our lives that can take us to greater depths of healing, change and understanding. For me, it was difficult to understand why or when these times would show up more so than others until I realized there was a natural flow happening in the world around me. Over the past few years

What’s your Story?

Family stories...we all have them. A story that we have been told our whole life about ourselves or another person in our family. A secret perhaps we were told to never repeat. Over the past couple of weeks it was brought to my attention that a family story I had been told for over 35 years was in fact, not truth. To be fair, there was some truth that was mixed in

Exploring our New Year

As we enter into this New Year, may we remember the roots we planted from 2020; the things we learned, the connections we made with our selves and one another and above all how we can take better care of ourselves and our loved ones. Usually with a New Year comes new promises we make to ourselves, goals, visions and expectations, but what if we enter into this year with

Roots of Remembrance

My family and I have been in isolation for approximately 8 weeks now. It has been a powerful time of connection for me; connection to myself, my family, our greater community and to our Dear Pachamama (Mother Earth). After the first week or so I felt massive sighs of relief as if She is able to finally breathe again because we have slowed down.

My Journey

My journey has always been a spiritual one, a path that has taken me all around the world, literally and figuratively, only to bring me home to myself. I have come to see that our path will continue to invite us to a greater awakening along our journey. We all have a choice though. Some may choose this awakening with the simple desire for something "better" while others need the cosmic two
