IMAGINE YOURSELF FLOATING IN A RIVER

Okay, I’m not sure where I’m going to go with this post as of now. But hang in there with me and let’s just see. This post was inspired by a newsletter I read this morning in which a woman named Pamela Kribbe channeled a message from Mother Earth. If you’re not into this kind of thing, you can still get something from this post and this quote. Because this quote was essentially asking us to imagine ourselves floating in a river. And to feel what it feels like to just let go. As if the river represents our world and our life as we currently know it. Continue reading IMAGINE YOURSELF FLOATING IN A RIVER

THERE ARE OTHER KINDS OF VALUABLE INTELLIGENCES BESIDES THE PATRIARCHAL KIND

I will start off this post by saying that in no way am I knocking patriarchal intelligence. And if you don’t know what I mean by patriarchal intelligence, I’ll explain below. Please know that I believe there are all kinds of intelligences, and I think that all of them are valuable. And this article is more to express my frustration about the fact that patriarchal intelligence has historically received (and still receives) WAY more respect, throughout the entire globe, than most other kinds of intelligences. And it pisses me off. Continue reading THERE ARE OTHER KINDS OF VALUABLE INTELLIGENCES BESIDES THE PATRIARCHAL KIND

IN A PAST LIFE I WAS DEFINITELY FRENCH

It’s strange, but I have never really felt very connected to France and French culture. I took a European tour when I was in high school, and it was rather terrible. The chaperones got wasted every night, and they whooshed us through so many different cities in one day, I hardly knew where I was on any given morning. I believe I was in Paris for about four hours, and I wasn’t much impressed. And after that, I decided once and for all that I didn’t like France. Silly me. Because the older I get, the more I become convinced that in a past life, I was definitely French! And I’ll tell you why. Continue reading IN A PAST LIFE I WAS DEFINITELY FRENCH

SPEND REGULAR TIME WITH MAMA NATURE AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS

I was feeling kind of glum the other day. And as per usual, I stepped outside to spend some time with Mama Nature via my nearby nature trail. As I was walking, I just noticed that even though I was in kind of a blah mood, Mama Nature was just there for me. I felt her gentle vibes just kind of cradling me in kindness. And in that moment, I felt so supported, and so super grateful to have this beautiful relationship with her. I know not everyone can access nature on a regular basis. But I’m telling you, if you are able, spend regular time with Mama Nature and see what happens. Your life will become that much more magical, I promise! Continue reading SPEND REGULAR TIME WITH MAMA NATURE AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS

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

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

MY TOP 8 FAVORITE ESSENTIAL OILS

Remember to treat essential oils with respect, as you would anything in nature. Nature can be mysterious, unpredictable, incredibly loving, and incredibly terrifying, all at the same time. Even though we are just talking about a little bottle of liquid here, remember that this little bottle of liquid contains incredibly pure entities from the wild. Never forget, and always remember to just treat your oils, and the entire process, with respect and humility. Continue reading MY TOP 8 FAVORITE ESSENTIAL OILS

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
