Inspiration to help you find your own way
Sunrise ritual today I walked a labyrinth. No surprise, I have a passion for labyrinths and post frequently about this walking meditation. I used this tool to combine the powerful energies of the the Sun and Moon to boost my magical powers of creation!
Today we enter the Waxing Crescent Moon also known as the Gathering phase TM of this current moon cycle.
I love the gathering phase of the moon cycle, it’s the Lover archetype energy and invites us to be in the frequencies of compassion, joy and love for life as it is, and as we desire it to be. This phase of the moon will last for 3 days 5/15-518.
Labyrinth Fun Fact :
The winding pattern of any labyrinth also represents the circulation of vital energies within our bodies, and that pattern suggests the convolutions of the brain and the intestines--two poles of our body corresponding to our consciousness and its physical vehicle. To traverse the labyrinth is to bring into one wholeness all parts of our being. Walking the labyrinth is thus a type of Yoga.
This beauty dropped in.
Inspired me to watch this awesome documentary on Hummingbirds. Truly beautiful and remarkable creatures. So much I did not know about this unique being, that hangs out inviting me into playful motion. They are lovers of the Sun, Nectar and Beauty! Also very fierce and territorial.

Breathwork is the most essential component to transforming consciousness. - Dr. Andrew Weil
Our breath is essential to life itself and to the quality of our lives. Yet many of us don’t pay sufficient attention to this fundamental process. Honestly, I didn’t until a year ago. But once I embraced conscious breathing as part of my daily practice, I significantly boosted my health and wellbeing.
Now I work with clients to help them experience the same benefits. Together we find the right breathing habits to:

“A miracle is simply a shift in perception.”- Gabby Bernstein
And there is only one thing that matters when it comes to shifting your perception of reality, and that is “your willingness” to let go of an idea that is not serving you. All that you need to do in order to let go of the idea that keeps you stuck in a certain point of view is to open yourself up to the possibility that another idea might serve you better.
I love to get upside down when turning in and sourcing new perspectives! Head stands, shoulder stands and hanging upside down from trees help bring new idea’s into focus! I’ve been practicing back bends on my new toy-Feet Up trainer ( seen in this pic) while opening myself more to the idea that “I am, we all are, multi-dimensional energy beings” and can create with non-physical energy.
I am talking about the energy that we receive from within us, all around us, Source, our guides, angels, higher frequency beings who just want to help, and from so many other sources that we have available to us- the earth, sun, moon, stars, elements etc. We don’t have to do it all ourselves, and we certainly don’t have to do it all with what is available to us in this physical realm. In this perspective we are all capable of being free and unlimited beings!
Can you imagine what you could create if you opened yourself up to the idea that you have access to energy resources from within you and the non-physical world?
What idea are you willing to let go of in order to align yourself with the perspective needed to shift your realty of- health, wealth, relationships, career, community, love ... whatever you feel stuck in?
How do you shift perspective and line up with new idea’s that open your unlimited flow of wellbeing?
I’de love to assist you!

Understanding the inner communication process is a key to a peaceful and exuberant life!
There is a part of you that communicates continuously with your higher self and has access to a broader perspective. Your higher self is invisible to your current perceptions, but nonetheless has a powerful influence. Your higher self is connected with a broad vista of reality in which there is a purpose to all you experiences. Ideally, your higher self communicates this broader view to you by way of energy waves- impulse, knowing, vision, synchronicity, emotion or a gut feeling. It is up to you to translate your own messages and realize that, as you declare your perspective, reality conforms. This unique view is shown to you by your higher self over and over again. The key is to learn to tune in and to do so consistently, then follow through and be mindful of diluting the process with excuses and unchecked fears.
I would love to help you better understand the inner communication process and experience a peaceful and exuberant life!
One of the most powerful tools my client’s and I use for Self-Evolution is a Journal. ( revised 2019 post)
Today I’m sitting outside journaling & enjoying grounding, the sweet breeze and the humming birds on the lipstick bush behind me. I’m utilizing journaling and nature to stimulate creativity, higher perspective and nervous system wellbeing (stress relief)
The benefits of journaling differ from person to person. There seem to be, however, general themes that are attractive in the collective unconscious. Many of us, my clients and myself, look to daily entries of personal experiences to gain personal support and inspiration.
Here are my 11 Soul Evolutionary Benefits to Keeping a Journal:
💮 Maintaining a journal is a natural way to exercise the brain. When we make regular entries, we’re taking time to develop writing and communication skills that are very valuable in everyday interactions. (Like writing this blog!) This mental exercise also helps our thoughts flow more freely and gain momentum.
💮 Creativity is another benefit to consider. Creativity is an important aspect of journaling. The right hemisphere of the brain is associated with visual, imaginative and intuitive facets of thought. When we take time to write, we free the right hemisphere’s creative mechanism. The ideal entry will be one that puts the inner editor on hold. Thoughts and ideas should flow freely and naturally.
💮 Self-awareness is developed through the uninhibited nature of this form of writing. Most of us often create different faces to meet various circumstances. We tend to recreate in distinct situations, including the work environment, the community and even at home while participating in our intimate relationships. Journaling helps bring self-awareness of our different faces into perspective.
💮 The process of keeping a journal helps us recognize the various aspects of our unique personalities. Growing self-awareness is a powerful force that can lead to even greater benefits in the future. Gaining insight into the Self is among the most important aspects to Self- Evolution.
💮 Our ability to set priorities is another end-result of journaling. Once we get a grasp on thoughts and emotions that are filtered through our personal experience, we begin to gain control of them. The process eventually leads to a greater understanding of what is and what is not important. I personally find this use of journaling very beneficial to my personality!
💮 Our ability to see the past more clearly is another excellent advantage to keeping a journal. The pages of our past can be revisited with a fresh perspective. It can be very surprising how much our understanding of an event changes over a relatively short period of time. My clients often find great moments of epiphany when rethinking and rereading entries. They also become more aware of their own personal growth and achievements.
💮 Journaling is a fantastic problem-solving resource. The approach of using entries to come up with various solutions to challenges is a little different than approaches for self-awareness and growth. We can choose temporary brainstorming techniques that offer viable solutions to problems.
💮 “Variety” is another very supportive value of journaling. We can choose the kind of entries we want to make. Common choices include brainstorming sessions, automatic writing and reflective notes. Personal journal entries can be made upon inspiration, when we first awake or right before falling asleep. I choose to do a combination of these, depending on my focus.
💮 Purge! Many people find it helpful to place negative thoughts and feelings down on paper. Once the negative energy is placed on the page, we are free to let it go! This practice also works well when dealing with anger towards another individual. Purge the negativity and work towards a constructive approach!
💮 Communication with others is another aspect of keeping a journal. Those who work with life coaches can find a wealth of resources for sessions. Journaling can help us tap into our fears and dreams, helping our coach gain insight through entries we choose to share.
💮 Finally, journaling reduces stress! It provides time for us to meditate. The process helps make the positive forces in our lives surface and it helps bring the destructive patterns into light. The result of personal journaling is a new perspective on how we can become Self- Aware and take personal responsibility of many aspects of our lives!
Let’s Reconnect and Renew During Intense Times
I hope you have been able to access your inner wisdom and spiritual connection to find many moments of peace during these challenging times.
Sorry I have been out of touch for a few months. I humbly acknowledge that my own spiritual path has been bumpy as I navigated fires, health issues of my life partner, the untimely death of my sister in addition to the stresses of the pandemic and our country’s divisive political and racial climate. All this resulted in inflammation in my body and resistance in my spiritual journey.
Thankfully, I dug even deeper into my practice and was able see these intense challenges as opportunities for healing and growth. Through meditation, breathwork, chakra balancing, nutrition and more, I shifted my perspective and further explored my higher self.
Today, I am even more committed and more able to help others align with their best selves. We all have the power to take full responsibility for our wellbeing. To support you on your unique path, I would be honored to coach you to:
· create daily meditative spiritual practices
· learn breathwork to awaken your potential
· bring your chakras into balance
· use intuitive readings to help relieve stress and guide your personal and interpersonal dynamics
· develop strategies for nurturing productive beliefs and actions to adopt (and abandon)
· be accountable to your highest potential
· embrace the energy of your best self
While we can’t control the events around us or the thoughts that come into our awareness, we can choose which ones to attend to and thereby shape our experiences.
Please reach out to me at 978.378.0506 email. I would love to explore how I can support you on the next leg of your personal journey.
Blessings of peace,

A labyrinth is an ancient symbol that relates to wholeness. It combines the imagery of the circle and the spiral into a winding but purposeful path. It has only one path. It is unicursal. The way in is the way out. The labyrinth represents a journey to our own center and back again out into the world. Labyrinths have long been used as meditation and prayer tools.
For me it is a symbol that creates a sacred space and place and when I walk the path I shift from ego to my Higher Self. The path winds throughout and becomes a mirror for where I am in my life. It helps me to see my life more clearly.
The experience is three fold:
🧚On the way in I am releasing and letting go of the details of my life that no longer serve me. As I speak my clearing statements my mind quiets and empties.
🧚Illumination occurs when I reach the center. I stay centered for as long as I am called to. It is a place of meditation and prayer. I’ve released and am receptive to what there is for me to receive. Here I leave an offering, today it was a stone.
🧚On my way out I am aligned and joining with Higher Self, Source Energy and with the healing forces at work. Today I affirmed the good, the holy and the beautiful into life.
I noticed when I arrived there was Hawk watching from the pole and stayed there until I was driving away. Hawk has traveled with me since I was 18 years old. It’s a sign from the spirit realm that I am ready to take on a larger, more powerful expansion and vision of the world. So It Is!🙏

In October of 2020 my right knee swelled up to the size of a softball. I was completely immobilized for the only time in my life. I had inflammation flareups in other parts of my body early in the year that I was able to sufficiently handle. But this was completely different! After 10 days of not being able to reduce swelling, I decided to see my naturopathic doc, Dr Katka. I do not do traditional medicine so this was my only path.
My Naturopathic doctor ran a blood panel that showed all my systems were inflamed and the inflammation had settled in my knee. My immune system was firing. We suspected there may be a pathogen, but at my request, we did not name the experience as I would have done if going to a medical doctor practicing western medicine. Instead, we agreed she would assist my body naturally based on what we knew and suspected. I would do the internal work necessary to address the mental/emotional state causing inflammation in my physical being. I knew that work would make the biggest impact for me.
My naturopath offered me the option of being put on medication for inflammation,including steroid shots for pain to take the edge off my discomfort in the short term. I declined and told her that I am responsible for my overall well-being and was willing to do the inner work and whatever it would take naturally to come back into balance. She agreed with this path, as she too thought it was the best one in the long run for my body’s overall health. She also felt confident in my commitment to my wellbeing and ability to do the deeper work necessary to come back into wellness.
The plan of action was for me to:
Make some shifts in my nutrition, to move away from eating to boost my immune system & cleansing, and instead eat and supplement to soothe my body’s systems and decrease inflammation. I leaned into some of the Medical Medium’s (Anthony William’s)liver protocols and recipes and my doctor’s supplement suggestions.
We also agreed that breathwork and meditation would be a constant self-care regime, morning and evening. I needed to increase the care of my nervous system, particularly my vegas nerve. I contacted my breath work coach Carla w/ Divine Interest. She helped me to set intentions for my breathwork, mindset and created guided journeys to support my morning practice. In addition, I faithfully began a 4:8 deep rhythmic breathing practice at night.
Daily I soaked in a hot epsom salt and essential oil bath. This became a ritual that opened the space for physical and emotional release and healing. I practiced my breath-work meditation and emotional clearing practices while soaking.
Daily sunbathing and chakra balancing was another ritual I grew accustomed too once I was able to move around my home more easily.
I began IV therapy on day 10 of my process, during my first naturopathic visit to begin reducing pain and inflammation. Once I had addressed the pain and begun to reduce swelling, I moved to Ozone therapy on day 25 of my process. The pics you see here are of me last week at my 6th Ozone session, 13 weeks into my process. I’m alined with Ozone as an alternative pathway to maintaining and assisting the body back into balance.
My knee swelling is completely down now and I’m mobile again, walking, hiking, rowing, grocery shopping, driving, enjoying nature and my life to the fullest physically. 🙏💃 Currently I’m overall inflammation free and my body is handling easily naturally occurring inflammation from positive stress incurred with daily use, exercise etc. My nervous and immune systems are self regulating again and my body is thriving.
The piece that freed me the most was the internal work I did. My work was guided by my own intuition, Naturopath Dr. Katka and breathwork coach, Carla. The combined inspiration reminded me of the importance of spaciousness, patience, acceptance and love. My studies with PLA over the years and today / 9 Super Powers Initiation and 13Moons Initiation taught me transformation systems that allow me to deliberately access my subconscious mind and consciously make change. I was able to remember childhood experiences that had been locked down in fear ( inflamed states), triggered by the current events of my personal and worldview experiences (inflamed states). This gave me the opportunity to feel and release stories, stuck energy and locked memory. My self-care practices supported me to further heal and clear my subconscious, while strengthening my vegas nerve and overall nervous system health, immunity and wellbeing.
My True Self was coming more on-line!
Ultimately my healing was in remembering who I am as an energetic being and aligning with my True Self. Through surrender, acceptance, patience and Love I came home to my true nature and energetic essence. I was reminded that I cannot help the thoughts that come into my awareness, but I can choose the thoughts that I will give my attention to and thereby determine what experience I will have. I was returned to the healing power of gratitude for all the assistance that showed up to support me when I asked.
I believe we all have the power within us to take full responsibility for our health and wellbeing and that there are many natural and supportive systems, modalities, practices, practitioners and divine helpers available to us that are willing to guide and support us to claim the power within to heal our own lives. It’s up to us, and we have everything we need!!

Are you eating to live and stay in alignment with a renewing wellbeing and ease?
Or are you living to eat serving compulsive behaviors and emotional cravings?
Or maybe you just withhold nutritional love from yourself altogether?
I was a compulsive eater, giving way to all my cravings, stuffing all my emotions and staying quite busy exercising and competing, socializing to a distraction and working crazy corporate hours.
I never thought about what the food I was putting into my body was actually “doing”. I was so bogged down and distracted in my unprocessed emotions, memory and trauma, doing whatever I could to avoid them. Over a long period of time, I developed inflammation in my body that showed up in many aches and pains, stress, and then a persistent walking pneumonia that brought a halt to everything. That was a game changing diagnosis for me. It caused me to take a deep pause and reflection of myself - mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually.
Food wasn’t my only bad habit, but it was a big part of my holistic picture. Becoming conscious about my motivation to eat was one of my greatest acts of self-love and care.
Fast forward 25 years. Now I consciously eat to live and experience a continuous flow of wellbeing and deepening connection to my inner beauty and higher self. My body knows exactly what it needs and I listen. Priceless!
There are a lot of - diet/ nutrition perspectives floating around, offering to fix this and that. I tried some, especially during the times I had aches and pains or was exercising to compete. In some cases a fix occurred, often temporarily though. I’ve learned that my body’s needs change as often as I do.
One perspective of eating doesn’t fit all!
Learning to eat intuitively and take full responsibility for my nutritional choices and overall wellbeing is what best serves my freedoms and fullest expressions. Right now I’m on day 7 of the Medical Medium’s Liver Rescue 3:6:9 cleanse. I like to cleanse with seasonal changes. This cleanse is easy on the system and allows me to eat nutritionally dense foods that restore and renew the liver, which was in need of some love. 🙏🏻
Like I said , food is one part of self care and is integral to my mental, emotional and spiritual self-care.
Exercise, time in nature, SOMA breathwork, meditation, moon magic, journaling and sensual play are also ways to care for yourself and stay in alignment with wellbeing.💃
