ARE YOU TAKING OWNERSHIP OF YOUR LIFE, OR IS IT THE OTHER WAY AROUND?

This podcast episode was inspired by The Goddesses. I mean, what else is new? They’re endlessly inspiring! And from the card I pulled below, I was inspired to pose this question to you: Are you taking ownership of your life, or is it the other way around? And I love this question. Because for so many years, I didn’t even realize I had a choice. I didn’t even know this was a thing I could do! And then I started learning ways to gradually (and sometimes not so gradually) take massive ownership of my life. And once I did this, I got REAL HAPPY, real fast. I want this for you as well. So, please listen and enjoy! Continue reading ARE YOU TAKING OWNERSHIP OF YOUR LIFE, OR IS IT THE OTHER WAY AROUND?

HOW TO HEAL YOUR WOUNDED INNER CHILD

Are you a human being? Yes? And as a human being, have you ever experienced any pain, trauma, or fear as a child? Probably. And as an adult, do you sometimes get triggered by something that feels sort of deep-seated and somewhat irrational? Well, if so, welcome to being a person! Whether or not you had a dark childhood, or a fairly bright one, we’ve all experienced some form of trauma or fear as a little person.

Well, I have an exercise that’s super easy and safe, if you are like me and don’t want to allow your wounded inner child to dictate your happiness as an adult.

HOW TO NAVIGATE THE INTRICATE WORLD OF MEDICINAL ESSENTIAL OILS

I have been working with medicinal essential oils for since 2012, so for almost 10 years. I began learning about medicinal essential oils with an intensive weekend workshop. And since then, I’ve been using them regularly and gaining my own personal knowledge and wisdom from hands-on experience and use. Continue reading HOW TO NAVIGATE THE INTRICATE WORLD OF MEDICINAL ESSENTIAL OILS

IS VISION BOARDING POINTLESS, OR DOES IT REALLY WORK?

I’ll start off by saying that from my experience, no, vision boarding is not pointless, and yes, it does work. But, take it with a grain of salt, because it’s not the end-all-be-all of manifestation. But, it’s an awesome part of the process and it’s one of the many helpful tools that I have been using for years. Continue reading IS VISION BOARDING POINTLESS, OR DOES IT REALLY WORK?

ALCHEMIZING MY FEELINGS OF JEALOUSY INTO MANIFESTATION MAGIC

For most of my life, all I ever wanted was to find love. I really didn’t put much energy into other things. I mean, I went to school, got good grades, made my artwork, and found a good job. But, I really couldn’t direct my deepest soul yearnings towards anything else, until I had achieved relationship comfortability. And now that I have the love thing underway, over the last year, I have been able to focus on other things. For instance, I would really like to have something I can feel proud of in my life. I would like to have creative success and power. And I’ve been working my wheels of manifestation magic, spinning them to the max. But, like everything in life, there are roadblocks and lessons. And honestly, I struggle with jealousy and envy of others. Continue reading ALCHEMIZING MY FEELINGS OF JEALOUSY INTO MANIFESTATION MAGIC

JUGGLING A BUTT STAPH INFECTION WITH MY SEARCH FOR LOVE

can’t really share about my butt staph infection without talking about it in terms of chakras. I have done a fair amount of chakra healing work on my body and my spirt. And viewing my ailments through the chakra-based viewfinder, is just kind of how I function. It makes sense to me, and whenever I have a body ailment of any kind, I often think about the chakra related to the area of the body where the ailment exists. Continue reading JUGGLING A BUTT STAPH INFECTION WITH MY SEARCH FOR LOVE

TWIN SISTERS MAKING ART IN THEIR OWN WAYS

I never really thought of my twin sister as an artist. I was the artsy one and she was the book worm. She was always, always, always reading. And I was always, always, always making art. When we branched off to college, she received her degree in journalism, and I in photography. And only in recent years have I had the pleasure of seeing the authentically creative side of her. Turns out, she’s been collaging longer than I have! And it also turns out that she writes poetry on a regular basis. Good poetry! She just never really shows anyone or shares her work. And as we grow older and come to know each other even more deeply, I so enjoy the opportunity for us to discuss and share our art with each other. Continue reading TWIN SISTERS MAKING ART IN THEIR OWN WAYS

HOW TO GET HAPPY AT WORK

From my experience, the key to being happy at work is all about finding the right match. It’s kind of the same as finding a good relationship. You can work at it and improve yourself, reflecting and growing and changing along the way. However, if your partner sucks, or is just incapable of being decent, it really doesn’t matter what you do. And leaving becomes the best option for all parties involved. I do believe that the same is true for finding happiness at work. And it’s all about recognizing the warning signs.
