Name Calling

What do you call yourself?  Do you have a title that your clients/employer refer to?  Do you go by a specific role (daughter, mother, brother, wife...) so others know what to expect from you? 

These names, titles, roles have their place.  Sometimes they are helpful so that the right people can find you - turn to you, and yet, a particular title, or role, can also turn into the hooks of expectations and obligations that can lead to overwhelm and exhaustion. ...

The Warrior in a Baby's Body

When I asked mySelf what story wanted to be told, I got...

Please tell the tale of how you were a strong warrior in a baby's body. Tell them about the time your parents placed you in a high chair at the restaurant, and out came your bellowing laugh.  The other patrons turned to follow the sound with expressions as if to say, "Did that deep laugh really just come from a baby's mouth?"

When I laughed again, and they saw that it did, a contagious laughter spread through.  And...

Truth be Told

Before my nephew could read and write, we use to write stories together.  I would prompt him with questions (from elements of the Hero's Journey) and then he would tell me what to write down - including a few scenes that would make any reader wonder if his younger sister would ever make it out alive. 

I could've told him, "That's not nice," and asked him to change those scenes, but then what?  Would his tensions be brought to light the next time we...

From Exhaustion & Attachment to Ease & Connection

I've met children and adults who are just so funny.  They have the gift of bringing laughter to a room - breaking up any serious, dense energy that's been there for a while.  They can offer relief from all that is going on - relief from the chaos above the calm. 

But sometimes the gift of being funny (or performing, or pleasing, or fixing, or soothing...) can be a way of making everything "right."  The result? Your gift, if applied in the context of making everything...

What if everyone lived in abundance, just for being who they are?

I haven’t felt like doing much lately.  My energy level goes up and down, but most of the time it’s slow moving - anything I do takes twice as long as it “should."

I can also feel the tension in my low back which makes everyday chores more delightful (Not!), and did I mention that I just got my period?

When my body feels like it doesn't want to do anything, sometimes I'll listen.  I'll lay down to actually do nothing, until my mind starts doing something. ...

What if everyone trusted their intuition?

People are exhausted and drained. They are tired of all the doing - doing what is expected, and doing it within the expected timeframe. 

Can you relate?

Meeting these expectations is often done at the expense of being your authentic self - lit up and filled with power - including the power to ask yourself what you need and want so you can experience more ease and joy.

Some will say that turning inward to ask what you need and want is selfish, but if you are sacrificing...

What if everyone you met felt safe?

There is a comfort in being with someone who knows you, who gets who you really are.  There is a kind of language - a telepathy - that requires no effort.  The connection requires nothing from you - to feel, or be, any different.

In this space, it feels safe to let another in - to bond in a way that is needed for these challenging times, to make it through, in an easier way.

These are the kind of times that could make you a hero/heroine for all that you're going...

What if every space you entered felt safe?

Imagine walking into a dining room with the table set for one, two, three, or more.  It’s like an alter:  Plates, napkins and silverware are all coordinated, yet simple; your favorite flowers are at the center; and the candles on either end have been lit, creating a warm hue throughout the room.  Music plays in the background too, but it’s so soft you almost don’t notice.

How do you feel in this space?

Do you wonder what will happen in this room? Who will...

The Receiving Ceremony

 

There are so many needs that an empath can see and sense.  They are attuned to these needs in a way that others are not.  Their sensitivity to others’ needs is so important and a gift for all of humanity.  They have the competence that is needed. They have the ability to make everything better.

And yet this is not their true journey. It is not always theirs to make better.  The journey unfolds in a series of initiations where the empath uncovers layers upon...

Ancestral Support for My…Taxes?

I woke up with tension in my low back, and a weight on my shoulders extending up through my neck - my head heavy with thoughts. 

“I need to finish my tax preparation and get my stuff to the accountant!”

The problem?  I didn’t feel like doing it. Besides feeling tension throughout my body, I noticed I’d become the rebellious teenager who’d rather be doing something fun, and in protest, was going to her room and NOT DO ANYTHING (except check social...
