Inspiration to help you find your own way
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.💃

I love this quote: “Wherever you are is the entry point.”- Kabir
I have been sitting quietly at the entry point… this moment now. I’ve been using all my tools to process personal, local community & global events that have triggered me (my point of entry) to pause and turn within.
Since the onset of the pandemic, which was unsettling on its own; my younger sister committed suicide; wildfires moved through my desert land and my family and I were evacuated from our home twice, once unable to return for days not knowing if our home was still standing; my partner received news that he may have a serious health issue that could shorten his life. All these events were sudden, devastating, and close to heart and home for me.
Globally the world continues to be challenged with societal challenges—politically, spiritually, environmentally, economically and with human rights. These challenges are not new to me. I was a 60’s baby who grew up in Boston, developing in a decade of extremes, transformational change, and contrast; most often in a violent climate. I was raised in a revolution! A revolution similar to life today, only now it feels to be on steroids and revealing at warp speed a deep state of disfunction ready to heal.
The struggles of my sister, Karen, and the revolution of today live as memories in my subconscious mind. The recent events triggered within me memory of similar experiences that I had not fully integrated, including family childhood trauma, neglect and conditioning and severe societal trauma; all Deep States of dysfunctional conditions! The wildfire flames and destruction that moved through my home and community and my beloved’s health all triggered within me, memory of loss, helplessness and grief.
You see as children, especially younger than 7, we live in a potpourri of experiences where we are not able to differentiate self from other. So everything we feel, hear, sense and see tells us about the world around us. And we believe it 100%. These experiences, stored in our subconscious minds are the ones our brains draw from to give us its best guess as to how we should feel, think and respond every time we are engaged with stimuli. Until we consciously recondition ourselves into alignment with the higher truth of who we are, we continually cycle through the same old same old, just a different year, decade, person, place or situation seeking our- liberation.
I had so much unravel so fast and could feel the subtle pull of my triggered pain, suffering and confusion – fear stirring deep within, resulting in inflammation in my body’s joints. I could feel my vulnerabilities at not being able to respond to the best of my abilities. I wanted to be conscious and not reactive, so slowing down and diving deep into my own state of mind became imperative. I needed to be aware and mindful of what was happening in the present moment (now) within me.
My “feeling triggered and vulnerable moment” was my entry point to where I was, who I was not, my truth now, and the future I desire. In order to fully claim my authentic personal power, and to live as authentically as possible, I had to go back to my own childhood and discover and heal the familiar and societal wounds that were still active within me… my family legacy and society. Gratefully, my physical, psycho-emotional, and spiritual conditions are set up to allow this movement within me. During this time, my daily self-care practice helped me access my higher consciousness presence and activate momentum toward my sage within.
I feel grounded, confident, present and whole now. I have gained clarity, compassion, ease and vision for the future I desire to co-create in. I’m confident that I have successfully completed generationally familiar and societal patterns within myself that will ripple through past, present and future experiences, giving birth to a New World to which I feel deeply connected. I want the same for you!
