DEATH AND SANCTUARY

The topic of death has been on my mind as of late. And last night, synchronistically, one of my tribe (spiritual friend group) members, sent out a suggestion (from @soundstrue) to all of us, to give the below exercise a try. When she sent this post to us, I was watching Dead Poet’s Society on… Continue reading DEATH AND SANCTUARY

REINDEER MAGIC, PART I: CLAIRE

[I preface this post by saying that I respect all holiday traditions and religions, and am not meaning to offend anyone by posting something Christmas-specific. I have my own beliefs and spirituality that is neither Christian nor any other defined religion. However, I was in fact raised by a Christmas-celebrating family, and do enjoy the… Continue reading REINDEER MAGIC, PART I: CLAIRE

HEART CHAKRA

I have been focusing a lot on my heart chakra lately. I do not know why, but it is almost like IT has been drawing ME, to it. I believe very deeply in the importance of the health of the heart chakra, and that many ailments and/or illnesses in this area of the body (heart,… Continue reading HEART CHAKRA

YOGA AND EMOTIONS

If you are struggling on any level, in any capacity, with any kind of emotional disturbance; from my personal experience, yoga can help. I resisted yoga for so many years—mostly because I could not find a yoga studio that I felt safe with and connected to. If you are going to yoga class strictly for… Continue reading YOGA AND EMOTIONS

NEW MOON RITUAL

I have been getting lots of feedback from the Universe lately, that I need to be a bit more positive about my future. [Feedback from the Universe, for me, often comes in the form of repeated messages from loved ones and/or acquaintances, as well as repeated thoughts in my mind, that, at any time, I… Continue reading NEW MOON RITUAL

LISTENING TO YOUR BODY, FOR REAL

I was born with the ability to astutely feel and recognize most physical sensations in my body, as they are happening. Perhaps I have just always paid closer attention to my bodily tremors compared to most others. Or maybe I’m not special in this respect, and I’m just a borderline hypochondriac (isn’t everyone?). But as… Continue reading LISTENING TO YOUR BODY, FOR REAL

CRYSTAL MYTHS

In one of my earlier posts about Palo Santo, I gave a shout out to my awesome yoga instructor/insanely addictive-ly amazing crystal jewelry-maker, and I’ve been thinking about doing a post on crystals ever since. I will preface this post by saying that I am SO not an authority on crystals, so in this post… Continue reading CRYSTAL MYTHS

THE WOODS

I have an intimate relationship with nature that I have developed over the years, and that I believe began when I was very young. I actually grew up in a city, and as a little girl, my memories are of hop scotch, and car horns, and alley ways. There was concrete all around and very… Continue reading THE WOODS
