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...
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!!
Even though you are hiding. I still see you.
As healers, we are being pulled to be more, step into our power, and be a bright light.
But it scares the bejeezus out of us.
And we hide. Thinking this will keep us safe.
But in reality, it stunts our growth. It dims our light.
And it becomes more and more painful because we are not honoring who we are and the gifts we are here to share.
It feels like a part of us is dying.
We may even get sick in our physical bodies with an illness or an injury....
That's kind of a trick question.
In the healing world, this is a pretty common practice of shielding ourselves from outside influences.
* Creating bubbles around ourselves.
* Standing in firm boundaries.
* Avoiding negative people.
* Using crystals and essential oils to help do the protection for us.
All these things are great, but....
The TRUTH is that protecting yourself is one of the WORST things you can do to yourself.
It's actually one of the biggest culprits that makes you...
This was originally written in 2013, and as I came across it in my computer, it has become another gentle nudge to bring me back to this space.
It has taken me years to finally understand (and accept) something about myself. While, it’s been there all along, it wasn’t until I recently came back from a yoga retreat that I have fully become aware that I like to be guided. Not in the tell-me-what-to-do kind of way but more of a gentle invitation to experience something new.
