ADULTING IS HARD AND I’M STRUGGLING WITH IT RIGHT NOW

I don’t know if it’s because Mercury is in Retrograde, or what. This planet retrogrades from May 29th to June 22nd 2021, and with this galactic chaos comes implicit problems with communication and technology, among other things. I openly admit that I do not do well when things are out of my control. And a lot of adulting often consists of dealing with shit that I don’t have much control over. I can typically handle this kind of thing in small doses. But as this retrograde unfolds, and more and more shit becomes uncontrollable, I’m finding that adulting is hard, and I’m super struggling with it right now.

IMPROVE YOUR LIFE BY LEARNING TO LISTEN

I am a decent listener in some aspects. In other areas, not so much. First off, I love to talk. I love to express and I love to share. You would think that would make me a terrible listener. However, I ultimately enjoy making authentic connections with others, and I know enough to know that you can’t connect with people unless you REALLY listen to them and take a genuine interest in what they have to say. It’s called “being a good conversationalist” and I think I have that on lockdown. However, there is always room for improvement. Continue reading IMPROVE YOUR LIFE BY LEARNING TO LISTEN

4 STEPS TO FORGIVENESS

I will tell you right off the bat that the process of forgiveness is not a linear one, and the title of this article is more for sexiness. These steps do not guarantee a positive outcome, and they come from my own personal experience with forgiveness. However, my journey was powerful, and one that I don’t believe was reserved only for me. Continue reading 4 STEPS TO FORGIVENESS

MANAGING YOUR EMOTIONS WHILE MANIFESTING YOUR DREAMS

I am not the first person to ever write about the art of manifestation, and I’m sure I won’t be the last. However, speaking from personal experience, I can say that the emotional roller coaster that we go through when we are trying to manifest something is really, really difficult, and not often talked about. Continue reading MANAGING YOUR EMOTIONS WHILE MANIFESTING YOUR DREAMS

MAPPING MY DESIRES FOR 2021

Living our dreams just kind looks like life. But we can truly be the ruler of our lives if we can just muster up the courage to admit that we do have a bit of an idea of how we might like our lives to go, and what we might want to feel like along the way. We aren’t allowed to dictate how those dreams arrive, but we can certainly make ourselves available to The Universe’s wisdom, and open ourselves to receive The Universe’s offerings. Our dream lives will follow. We all deserve this right, and we are all capable of walking this path. Continue reading MAPPING MY DESIRES FOR 2021

THE BENEFITS OF MEDITATION FOR CONTROL FREAKS

I am a controlling person, an anal-retentive Virgo, and a watered-down hypochondriac. Fearful of many things, I like when everything is in its place. I like when people do what I want them to do. And I don’t like when people do what I don’t want them to do (or don’t do what I want … Continue reading THE BENEFITS OF MEDITATION FOR CONTROL FREAKS

SURRENDER TO THE INEVITABLE EBBS OF LIFE

Right now I’m in an ebb. I can feel it. And I have to consciously surrender to it every day, because I trust in the cycle of ebb and flow, and not necessarily because it feels natural to me. Surrendering to the ebbs of life runs completely counter to American living. Americans push, and go, … Continue reading SURRENDER TO THE INEVITABLE EBBS OF LIFE

DEATH AND MAGIC: LETTING GO OF THE OLD TO BRING IN THE NEW

I have just returned from an evening drive and feel exhilarated and open. Let me back up a bit. Several days ago, I was feeling quite needy and impatient about my relationship, wondering where it is going and when it will get to where I want it to be. And because I was not finding … Continue reading DEATH AND MAGIC: LETTING GO OF THE OLD TO BRING IN THE NEW
