I MET SOMEONE THE OTHER DAY…

I MET SOMEONE THE OTHER DAY… Another human. He had come into my place to deliver a new microwave, and it reminded me of the times in my past when I wouldn’t have even acknowledged his presence. Subconsciously, I may have even treated him less than due to his job or felt that I didn’t need to acknowledge him because he wasn’t family, a friend or someone I knew. This time, though, I felt an instinctual pull to speak to him, to acknowledge him, and really, to acknowledge his humanity. I do this often. When I’m walking. At the gym. […]

A New Way To Look At Feeling Our Feelings And The Importance Of This…

We’ve spent our whole lives being taught our emotions are wrong, resisting them and believing that feeling our feelings hurts. But, what if, instead of this old paradigm, we were raised believing that feeling our feelings is one of the biggest keys to a rich, deep life? What if we were taught that we can only allow in as much joy as we can sadness, anger, hurt, etc. and when we limit our range of feelings, we limit our life? What if, with this, we were not only taught this, but we were given the tools to actually be able […]

What is Self-Love and How Do We Cultivate It?

Self-love is a hot topic these days, and I get asked a lot about what self-love is and how to take steps towards more self-love in our lives. For me, years ago before I started a true self-love journey, if you had asked me if I loved myself, just like most people, I likely would have said yes. But, through my journey, I’ve come to realize while I believed this, I showed up in many ways that weren’t loving. So, in order to better understand what self-love is, let’s first start with what not loving ourselves looks like. When we […]

The Wise Advice that My Writing Teacher Gave Me that Applies So Well to Life

As I wrap up the final pieces of my book, Living Deeply: A Transformational Journey Through Deep Pain, Loss and Abandonment to Healing, Self-Love and Miracles, I was thinking back to when I first started the writing process. As I set off on the adventure of writing my first book, I was reviewing my notes from a Writing from Your Heart workshop that I had taken years earlier with my favorite writing teacher, Nancy Aronie. As we began to dive into the workshop, I found the wise advice she had given us: Don’t edit yourself off the page before you’re even […]

My Biggest 2018 Lesson + What I’ve Been Up To

Happy Holidays! It’s been awhile since we connected, and I wanted to share what I’ve been up to and my greatest lesson for 2018. To be completely transparent, this year has not been an easy one for me, and the reality of this year and what I had been creating hit me a few months ago. I started to receive downloads that my choices weren’t rooted in the alignment that I was seeking and that if I was really going to create the life I had envisioned for myself, I was going to have to start to do things differently. What […]

Why Our Soul is Really Here + Our Next Online Workshop – Own Your Power

I know it’s likely been quite some time since we connected, and I want to share what I’ve been up to since I last shared. In addition to working on completing my first book, Living Deeply (super excited!), I’ve been leaning into the most recent energies that have been coming through. These energies are calling us to let go of anything that’s no longer serving us to step into the biggest versions of ourselves. Have you been feeling it too? For me, this has meant just being with what is. If I’ve felt like crying, I’ve cried. If I needed an hour […]

Do you know when someone’s lying to you + Final Reminder for the Online Intuition Workshop!

I’ve been thinking a lot about intuition lately, and really, all of the ways that I use my intuition, which for me, is part of my daily decision-making. And, one way, that’s often undiscussed, but can be very helpful, as we’re going through this journey we call life :), is our innate ability to distinguish if someone’s lying to us or not. How is this possible? Whether we realize or not, we are all connected, and that old saying about “I’m rubber, you’re glue,” is simply not true. If we choose, we can always tune in and connect to implicitly […]

Did you know that you’re intuitive, and even psychic?

Did you know that you’re intuitive, and even psychic? I used to think that these gifts were only reserved for the select few, the “special” people, but not too long ago, I found out that this simply wasn’t true. So, if this isn’t the case, how do we unlock these special gifts to live a truly guided life with more flow, ease and clarity, to name a few? 1. You have to be able to recognize how your intuition is currently coming through. Intuition comes through in many ways, including clairvoyance (seeing), clairaudience (hearing), clairsentience (feeling) and claircognizance (knowing). (To learn […]

My Personal Struggle Over the Holidays

I remember the last holiday season I had with my mom. It was over 20 years ago now, and I remember it being a really hard time. She had put in for leave at work, and while at the time I didn’t fully understand the gravity of what was happening, it was like there was a dark cloud over us, and really, a heaviness, and no matter what we did during that time, it was always there. She ended up passing away only a couple of months later, and it was devastating, though this would only be the beginning of […]

Why I Don’t Always Recommend Gratitude

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, gratitude has been on my mind. And, while I have a regular gratitude practice that you can read about below, before I do this, I want to address the pitfalls that can occur when we’re working exclusively with gratitude. Often we are taught when something isn’t working for us or when something goes wrong to go immediately into being grateful for it. And, while this can work, it often doesn’t work when there’s a charge, trigger or untruth to it. Let me explain. Say a family member hurt you at some point in your […]
