Wash Cares Away

Leave all of your cares
At your feet where
The water cleanses
And carries them away.
Allow the woes and
The worries alike
To fade as the wave
Retreats from where it came.
Allow the negativity to
Leave your being
And replace it with love.
Just be love.

Finding Gratitude Under the Super Moon Eclipse

Do you remember what was happening last September? Do you remember the last lunar eclipse? I know I do.

The powerful energy of today’s Full Moon eclipse settled into my bones this week causing me unease and discomfort. But as I grounded through my root chakra at yin yoga, I remembered how necessary grounding and gratitude is in our life.

The landscape back in September set me on a journey that delivered me to where I am now: on the brink of major change in my life. I couldn’t have known then what would unveil over the last six months, but the view I see now is extraordinarily beautiful yet unsettling at the same time. I am changing careers to follow my calling as a healer and spiritual coach.

The Winds Beneath My Heart

I’ve resisted against the winds of my heart for a long time. Now I’m too tired to push back. I’m ready to run with them.

Maybe you won’t understand why I’m fighting so hard. It may seem like I’ve pitted myself against a life most would be content to have. But I don’t want to be content.

I’m fighting for the utmost joy and a heart beaming with light. As painful as some of these day are, I love where I’m going.

Where There is Faith, Trust Must Follow

I speak of faith often but faith and trust are synonymous; you can’t have faith without trust. I am at the point where my faith has led me to unforeseen and spectacular heights that now require extreme amounts of trust to act on.

The wonderful thing is once you start practicing faith daily, your capacity to believe in greatness and miracles exponentially increases. When it comes time to say yes to the life you aspire to live, it becomes so much easier to trust in yourself, in your dreams, and in a higher power with faith in your pocket.

Stand in Your Light

This is who I am inside
This is who I am, I’m not going to hide
Cause the greatest risk we’ll ever take is by far
To stand in the light and be seen as we are
So stand in the light and be seen as we are

With courage and kindness hold onto your faith
You get what you give and its never too late
To reach for the branch and
climb up leaving sadness behind
Fight hard for love
We can never give enough

—”Stand in the Light” by Jordan Smith

I am not giving up on you,
But I am giving in to me,
Into my needs and my love
Just as you always have.
I am standing my ground,
But hear me when I say
I will not give up.
I will love you from afar
And support your dreams.
I will lift you up and
Always wish you well.
I know I will see you again.
I don’t know when or where;
I don’t know how either.
But in the distance that
Our lives take us apart,
Know there is never
A semblance of distance
In between the heart.
I will keep you there
Where you feel safe and warm,
Until one day you may just
Decide to feel what it’s like
To climb inside for awhile.
To know that you are loved;
You are so loved.
Until that distant day,
I’ll hold you in my heart
And see you in my dreams.

I shut off my feelings
In order to survive.
But I’d rather feel
The depth of my love,
The craze of my aching heart
Than push my emotions
Back under the sand.
I’d rather feel
Painstakingly alive
Than asleep to my own life.
You captured my heart
So long ago and yet
Try as I might
And fight as I will,
I cannot shut off
What is dying to be alive,
If you’ll let me
If I can just see
What lures beneath
The layers of security,
I know I will burst
With the power of
A billion flames
The love I held captive
And the intention
I dare to set free.
To love you like
It’s my last waking day.
To prove that you,
My dear one are
Far from cursed.
Here stands a love
Far greater than most.
If you’ll let me carry
Your fearful heart,
I’ll show you the way
To an unrivaled love.

Follow what lights
Your on heart fire
And sets your soul free.
Take a giant leap
And choose love.
You may not know
Where you will land,
But following your passions
Far outweighs living
On the sidelines in fear.
Would you rather feel
Painstakingly alive,
Following your passions
Into the unknown abyss?
Would you rather feel
Your heart burning in
Your chest or
Wonder what
Could have been
Had you courageously
Said yes to love?
Would rather not know
Where your leap lands
Or have your feet
Firmly planted right
Where you are in
An unexplored life?
When at the crossroad
Of fear and love,
choose love,
Every damn time.

Seeds of Intention

My chosen word of the year is sprout. I have the intention to grow and evolve using the foundation I set the past year. With only a few months into 2016, I have noticed the incredible impact my word has already made.

I began a new practice every night, at the suggestion of my wise friend, Sharri, to review the positive intentions that I set forth throughout the day. And to carry out my word of 2015, gratitude, I begin each day with all that I am grateful for. This sets the most wonderful tone that keeps me in a place of love all day. I find just how much my intentions change when I am steeped in gratitude.

The Awakening

At the tail end of one of the most tumultuous times I have experienced in my journey of spiritual awakening, on the cusp of change in every major area of my life: relationships, career, and home, I ventured on a walk with my dog (as I do every Saturday). This Saturday was like any other except it felt completely different. My life is rumbling with so much movement that I have felt like I stepped onto a rollercoaster ride that simply would not stop.

Although I have surrendered to the change and granted it permission to work through me to create the life I dream of, I have yet to learn how to keep my cool when shit hits the fan. And trust me, it’s blowing all around me, sending me in fifteen directions at once.
