As I prepare for the retreat in a few days, it made me realize I've never really shared about our story and pictures of our sacred space with you.
We created the Peaceful Heart Retreat Sanctuary as a magical, healing space nestled in the woods outside a small town in Oregon.
My hubby and I found our way here 3 years ago via Portland after he retired from the Air Force.
This has been a dream come true for us both. And a calling for me.
Having a small retreat space has been an...
Do you spin your wheel and spend tons of time trying to “figure it out?”
Are you frustrated because you know you are here to do something that fulfills you and your purpose but you can’t seem to connect to it fully?
I know this all too well.
And I sometimes still get sucked in the “figuring it out” mode.
But now I catch it and can turn it around.
It gets tricky because we are trained to use our thinking and the power of our mind to set your path to...
This came a few days after we were urged to prepare for an evacuation due to the encroaching forest fire.
And this was just after a full week from hosting my first Peaceful Magic Retreat in our newly remodeled home and retreat space.
Retreat. Fire. Breast Cancer.
All within a week.
And yet, I was calm, peaceful and plugged in like I had never been before.
I remember sitting on our almost-finished-new...
Until I sit down, my mind and heart are filled with all things I want us to talk about. I want to see you in the seat on the other side of the table entering into deep conversation about all the yummy topics that we as healers long to have.
And then I sit down with the computer and have to pretend you are here with me and my mind goes blank. I know I have so much to share, so many questions to ask you, and a longing to hear what’s going on in your world.
That’s one reason I...
As a healer, I'm sure you have heard ENERGY is EVERYTHING.
That's probably why so many of us are drawn to this healing work, even if we are not fully conscious of it or fully understand it.
I have studied energy through the law of attraction, healing touch, reiki, energy medicine, yoga, meditation, essential oils, brain rewiring and through my own life experience.
Through all of this, I have come to realize that our job is to align our energy with ourselves and our...
If you are like me, you hear the term "letting go" an awful lot.
It gets thrown around in yoga class, spiritual talks and books. (I know I've certainly done this!)
But what are we actually letting go of?
For some it feels like a death in letting go of a job or business, a relationship, a feeling, or even a belief.
These can be terrifying to let go of and often happen as we go kicking and screaming inside.
NO! I don't want to let go of this!!
Play is more than the light, fluffy, feel good experiences that can seem frivolous.
It actually helps with healing, prosperity, and moving through barriers so you can experience the magic we are all longing for, yet we think it can only happen after the "real" work is done.
Some even feel that play is a dangerous distraction and keep them from their responsibilities.
That's why Cathleen and I feel strongly about giving you a better understanding about play and how you can bring it...
When you said yes to the path of a healer, an entrepreneur, and a magical being did you realize how lonely it could be?
I had no clue what I signed up for!
It’s like being a unicorn in a field of horses.
And I didn’t even realize this was happening when I was in it. This feeling was masked by me being super busy meeting lots of people, going to tons of networking events, having sessions with clients, and focusing my energy on marketing, taking lots of trainings to grow my...
Each of us has a primary element that is the lens of how we operate in the world.
Water - Wood - Fire - Earth - Metal
For example, those of us who are strong in the Earth element tend to be the peacemaker, the caretaker, the teacher, the nurturer, etc.. And we LOVE the Earth.
We also hold the space of calm during transitions.
This all sounds pretty great, but when this element is out of balance it looks like over compassion, worry, enabling, and taking responsibility...
How good are you at letting yourself want what you want?
I'm talking about what you REALLY, REALLY want?
Not what is safe to want.
Or what you think you "should" want.
Sometimes that seems confusing and sticky, doesn't it?
I mean, is it okay to ask for what you want?
Does it seem like you are being ungrateful for what you have if you want more, or something different?
Oh, and what about if you have NO idea how to get it? Do you still let yourself want it?...
