Peace

Posted by on Oct 13, 2017

With the intensity of the energies we’ve been navigating, change of season and just managing all that is going on, this has been my mantra of late. And, this is so uncharacteristic for me. I take pride in being a doer, and usually feel best when I am getting shit done, but lately, I have just wanted to take peace.This kind of thing always blows my mind. I happened to find a piece of paper I saved from Soul Camp this summer. It had the word written on it that was supposedly “my answer” to having what I intended at Soul Camp this year. In the first night there is a cool fire burning ceremony in which you set an intention for what you want to get out of the weekend, then you partner up with someone, and they hand you this piece of paper with what will help you or be access to you having what you want. And, this is blind, without you having shared your goal with them. Guess what mine said? !!!!!!!! Yup! Peace. It made total sense at the time because my goal was a greater work/life balance. But, little did I know what it would ultimately feel like and what else I would...

How I found Peace and Connection last week…

Posted by on Oct 10, 2017

Last week the energy in the air just felt heavy. It feels like the world is being shaken up, and negativity that has been there is being released. Terror in Las Vegas. Choas in Spain. Now add London to the list. It feels like we are being invited to grow and to elevate our consciousness once again. Yet, it can be tough to be positive when we are faced every day with so much negativity and fear of the future’s unknown. Last Monday I woke up feeling disturbed, found out about the shooting in Vegas, and felt drawn to take my dog for a walk by the river to try to find some peace and perspective. As we walked through the city on our way to the water, I was just getting more and more agitated. The peace I felt with fewer people out on weekend mornings wasn’t there, and everyone was anxiously and frenetically scurrying about. When I finally got to the river, I felt compelled to walk over to the railing and stand on the edge of the pier to be closer to the water. As I looked down and watched and listened to the water hit into the rocks, I involuntarily took a huge breath, then...

Your Male and Female Parts In Conflict?

Posted by on Sep 22, 2017

There is a fight for power and energy happening between Yin (Female Oriented) and Yang (Male Oriented) Meridians of late.  I have been seeing this imbalance in just about everyone that has been coming in for sessions. The Yins, the meridians that motivate all your life-sustaining functions, like your heart, kidneys, and liver, are showing up depleted because the Yang Meridians are exerting so much energy to power action and forward motion. There is a conflict between nurturing yourself and managing all that is coming your way and all you want to achieve. The recent retrograde, solar eclipse and hurricanes have caused a friction or static that has put a lot of people’s central nervous systems on a stress alert. It’s like there is a background noise that is annoying you, but you don’t realize it was affecting you until it stops. Then, you are like, Ahhhhh, peace again. While, this time of year, end of summer/back to school, is bringing pressures to get more done as well as to be out enjoying the weather while it lasts. Keep going, going, going, and your energy may go gone. Try this exercise to help find peace again from these environmental disturbances, and for some suggestions on how to nourish yourself...

Bam! I Was Hit By The Boomerang Effect!

Posted by on Jul 17, 2017

I have been so relaxed, then these waves of anxiety got me last week accompanied by really dramatic and unrealistic fears that did not make sense. It was so strange. I was perplexed. Then, I found a letter I had written to myself last summer at Soul Camp. Each year, they have you write a letter to yourself and share some wisdom you gained there and don’t want to forget. My letter was urging me to take the time to receive the goodnesses in life more and to do more of the things that fill me up, like the yoga, massages and connecting with quality friends that I soooo enjoyed doing at Soul Camp. I was touched to tears reading this because I have been following those directives and carving out space to take better care of myself, that is why I think I felt this crazy anxiety! Bam! Boomerang Effect! It was like my central nervous system’s knee jerk reaction, saying, “Wait! Are you sure it’s totally safe to relax and to enjoy yourself so much? Shouldn’t you be watching to make sure the other shoe doesn’t drop?” Boy do subconscious patterns die hard! So I did an energy session (I do practice what I preach), and I...

The Decadent Gift I Gave Myself

Posted by on Jun 28, 2017

Today is my birthday! And to celebrate it, I want to share a story with you that I hope will inspire you to live your passion!   Over the winter my husband and I got into this Netflix series called The Chef’s Table.   This series is incredibly inspiring, as it gets into the head and heart of pure genius, the small number of chefs who have received three Michelin Stars.   These are the Mozart’s of cooking. One might think these chefs mad, as they are driven by their soul’s passion for food and the all-encompassing pursuit of perfection. They live and breathe their art, spending all their time sourcing the best ingredients and working tirelessly to create new cooking methods or dishes in the kitchen.   I find their passion inspiringly intoxicating. One episode that actually made me giddy was one about Grant Achatz, and his restaurant, Alinea in Chicago.   His story is nothing short of inspiring and his food, what I would call, multi- sensory art.   After Grant was diagnosed with a chef’s worst nightmare, cancer of the mouth, he was told by the first doctor that he would need to remove his tongue. He was ready to die. That is like telling a prima...

I want to celebrate something!

YOU!!!!!!! You are most likely a great friend, having compassion and doing your best to cheer your friends up when something goes wrong, right? You most likely try your best to treat your family with kindness and consideration (OK, most of the time, LOL) You are a caring person, maybe even inspiring. Happy to celebrate the achievements and accomplishments of others, but… What about yourself???? Summer is here, and it’s time to recognize and to celebrate YOU—all of your accomplishments, your personal and professional growth, and everything you love about your life! While the spiritual/emotional capacity of Spring is the power of growth, Summer holds the power of maturity.  In summer, the buds of spring bloom into full flowers and now can share their pollen to make more flowers. Recognizing and celebrating all you have accomplished is the way you expand your capacity, inner abundance and self-sufficiency. The same way a good summer harvest can supply food for the winter months, celebrating your achievements gives you the confidence to connect with others and the hope and faith to carry you through all of the ups and downs of success. Let’s take an inventory of all your good stuff, so you have a good supply for Winter!!!! Hit reply RIGHT...
