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.

A GODDESS AWAKENING HAPPENS WHEN YOU NEED IT TO

I have adored this goddess from the moment I stumbled across her blog. After typing “goddess” in my Wordpress Reader search field, I found The Hot Goddess, and I’m so happy I did! I wanted to find and follow other like-minded goddesses, and share with them my own journey of my goddess awakening. Natalie, is one of those goddesses who has had an incredible life journey, and she’s still on it! And over time, I have come to believe that her and I are kindred blogger spirits! It’s so amazing what happens when you open yourself up to others. Continue reading A GODDESS AWAKENING HAPPENS WHEN YOU NEED IT TO

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

YOU CAN’T BECOME A BETTER PERSON IF YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT’S WRONG WITH YOU

I know the title of this article kind of sounds like a bummer. And I don’t mean to imply that you have terrible things wrong with you, although you might. But, that’s not a problem. Because guess what? So do I. And so does everyone. I’m 41 years old and I would like to think that I have many of my “issues” under control. I’m a super functional human being and I have really positive and healthy relationships that make me happy. However, over the last few weeks, some of my not-so-fab traits have been emerging, and I’m really motivated to improve them. And I’m so relieved these issues have danced into the light for me to face. Because, I can’t really become a better person if I don’t know what’s wrong with me in the first place. And neither can you! Continue reading YOU CAN’T BECOME A BETTER PERSON IF YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT’S WRONG WITH YOU

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.

CATCHING UP 20 YEARS LATER WITH MY COLLEGE ROOMMATE

I don’t often keep in touch with people I went to school with. My friends were few and far between in high school. And in college, I really only connected with a rare few, even though I desperately tried to find like-minded souls during that time. And although my college roommate and I had very little in common, and did not hang in the same circles, we still kinda dug each other. We most likely never would have been friends if we weren’t randomly assigned to live with each other freshman year. And when you live with someone, if all goes well, it’s easy to form a bond that can last well after you have both moved on. This POD-BLOG* article, and this week’s podcast episode, revolves around my catching up 20 years later with my college roommate, Molly McIntyre. Continue reading CATCHING UP 20 YEARS LATER WITH MY COLLEGE ROOMMATE

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

HOW TO GET IN TOUCH WITH YOUR SPIRIT ANIMAL

I feel so much gratitude this week, coming off of a rich and inspirational weekend with my tribe. Last year, for the first time, we decided to rent a house in the woods of Pennsylvania for a weekend, and the trip was cathartic and beautiful and amazing. We decided to do the same thing again … Continue reading HOW TO GET IN TOUCH WITH YOUR SPIRIT ANIMAL
