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.

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.

MY SOUL CRUMPLED A LITTLE WHEN I TRIED WEARING MAKEUP

I’m really not knocking makeup at all. I truly want to be that woman who can put it on and wear it flawlessly. But, it’s just so problematic for me. And even though I downright worship women who rock the makeup look, and have fun with it, and play and experiment, I just can’t. Does this make me less of a woman? I don’t believe so, but it’s definitely something I’m grappling with. Like everything, it comes down to deep and inner happiness, and soul alignment. And even though I wanted to enjoy this experiment, my soul crumpled when I tried wearing makeup. And there’s just no getting around it. I just can’t do it. Continue reading MY SOUL CRUMPLED A LITTLE WHEN I TRIED WEARING MAKEUP

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. Continue reading HOW TO GET HAPPY AT WORK

MY EXPERIENCE WITH SPIRIT GUIDE COMMUNICATION

This is the first time I have ever openly expressed my experience with spirit guide communication. The only people who know about my guides are my closest friends, and they in fact helped me discover my guides. But more about that later. If you think this is a bunch of silly crap, I totally understand. I’m not pushing my beliefs on anyone else, and don’t even really know what I believe. I am just sharing one goddess’s experience with you. So feel free to take whatever pieces you like, and leave the rest behind. But try to be open, because you might just have spirit guides of your own waiting to connect with you! Continue reading MY EXPERIENCE WITH SPIRIT GUIDE COMMUNICATION

THE BENEFITS OF ENTERING INTO THE SILENCE ZONE

I have been on such an emotional trip lately. And during one of my dark days, my partner and I were driving somewhere, with me in the passenger seat. I was feeling so anxious, and for a moment, I just closed my eyes. Breathing silently, I began focusing on the blackness behind my eyelids. And after only a few seconds, I started to feel instant relief for the first time in days and days. I go in and out of my meditation practice (I am currently so out right now). But in this moment, it was impossible to ignore the benefits of silence. What’s crazy is how easily I forget, and how long I let myself go without stepping into silence. So, for your information, but also to remind myself, I want to dive deep into exploring the benefits of entering into the silence zone. Continue reading THE BENEFITS OF ENTERING INTO THE SILENCE ZONE

BODY IMAGE: WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WOMEN LOOK AT OTHER WOMEN?

Wow, the topics of body image and judgement are so huge. And I might be a total fool to try to tackle them. But, I think these are important topics for all women. We all want to believe we’re the best versions of ourselves at all times, but how can we possibly be? And I really would like to know, am I the only woman who goes into judgement mode when I look at other women? It’s terrible, I know, but sharing out loud about uncomfortable topics is my way of healing. So, without further ado, let’s let the healing begin! Continue reading BODY IMAGE: WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WOMEN LOOK AT OTHER WOMEN?

HOW BLOGGING CHANGED MY LIFE

My life changed when I started my blog and the story is really rather inspirational. I never really put the pieces together when I first began blogging, but sometimes you need distance from something in order to see the magic of it. I have been blogging for almost four years now, and I love it more than I ever thought I would. Continue reading HOW BLOGGING CHANGED MY LIFE
