Let me introduce myself

I thought I’d introduce myself to readers new and old. Lots has changed since I started this blog! We’re all in this space of rebirth, even the planet herself as she rages with fires of purification and waters of renewal. Personally, I’m being called to bring more of my self outward after a long (veryContinue reading “Let me introduce myself”

Using hard times as fuel to take you up

Think about a time in your life where you had a leap of consciousness. What were the circumstances that brought you to a new understanding of yourself? When I think about my own life, the times of greatest and most significant leaping occurred during times of enormous friction. There was the dark night of myContinue reading “Using hard times as fuel to take you up”

Feeling the call for freedom

I’ve been feeling the call for freedom! What does freedom look and feel like inside myself? For me, freedom is no more falsehood. That only the true, authentic me remains–no masks! It’s freedom of pain and suffering. No matter what appears before me. It’s finding flow and letting the light be…no interruption, no stagnation, noContinue reading “Feeling the call for freedom”

Confronting my white silence

I think many white people — myself included –we have thought, what’s the point of speaking up? Me pointing out my uncle’s racist view will do nothing to change his mind. But that logic can no longer stand.

I want to give everyone a big hug

So many people are passing through hard times. Pretty much everyone in my life actually. And lots of people who I don’t know, too. I want to hug each and everyone of you (whether I know you or not – I am originally from the Midwest after all. We hug everyone!)

Down with the patriarchy! (Oh wait you mean it’s inside me??)

I spent a lot of time in therapy, women studies courses and chat sessions about how we can dismantle the patriarchy to discover I wasn’t fully getting it. Finally exploring these questions as part of my spiritual work made me see it in a whole knew way.

Breaking rules, breaking habits

The creation of the art might be a spiritual act, but if you keep it to yourself you have only done half of the work. In sharing it with the outside world you make it sacred. That final step can feel scary and vulnerable but it’s also so freaking POWERFUL. It becomes a full circle moment. Not just receiving but giving it back to source in a new way.

I’m coming out of my shell! (And it’s a little scary)

The other night I read my daughter a book that mentioned how lobsters hide under rocks while molting a new shell. First of all: lobsters molt?! I I’m am showing my ignorance of the crustacean family here but I had no idea. Also, gross. Second: friends, I think I might be a LOBSTER! Let’s reviewContinue reading “I’m coming out of my shell!
