I recently immersed myself in Caroline Myss’ insightful episode, "Why People Don't Heal," from her Sacred Power series. It was an eye-opening experience that deeply resonated with me, and I feel compelled to share my reflections, hoping they might touch your lives as they did mine.
The Profound Impact of Our Wounds
Caroline Myss, with her profound understanding of the human psyche and spirit, delves into how our wounds, both seen and unseen, shape our lives. Watching this episode made me realize how often we, especially as women, let our wounds define us. It's like wearing an invisible badge that subtly dictates our choices, relationships, and even our dreams. Myss challenges us to look at these wounds not as definitions of who we are but as experiences that have the potential to teach us. This realization was a wake-up call for me to start seeing my wounds in a different light.
The Art of Letting Go
One of the most striking messages from Myss is the power and necessity of...
In an age where fear and uncertainty often dominate the headlines, finding a path to personal growth and spiritual fulfillment can seem daunting. The journey, however, is not about eradicating fear but learning to embrace and navigate through it with faith. This exploration delves into how we can transform fear into a catalyst for growth, the empowering role of faith in our lives, and the impact of media on our mental well-being.
Understanding and Embracing Fear: Fear is a universal experience, an emotion that can either paralyze or propel us forward. The key to leveraging fear lies in understanding it not as an enemy, but as a guide towards deeper self-awareness. The traditional approach of 'feeling the fear and doing it anyway' is evolving. In today's context, a more nuanced approach is needed, one that acknowledges fear and uses it as a stepping stone for growth and service to others. This shift in perspective transforms fear from a debilitating force into a powerful tool for...

I spoke to Dr. Lynn Carey for a wonderful conversation about creativity and healing, and I am sharing some of the takeaways here with you.
In an era where quick fixes and instant gratification are often the norm, Dr. Carey's approach is a breath of fresh air. She emphasizes that true healing comes from within, by aligning our physical bodies with our emotional and mental states.
This holistic approach to health doesn't just stop at physical ailments; it extends into every aspect of life. From her own experiences, she learned that living in alignment with your passions can be a potent source of happiness and fulfillment. This isn’t just some abstract idea either—it’s backed up by science! Studies have shown that engaging in activities we love boosts our immune system, reduces stress levels, and contributes to overall well-being.
But how does creativity factor into this? Well, according to Dr. Carey, everyone has the potential for creative expression—whether...
In the journey of self-discovery and healing, our connection with Spirit plays a vital role in guiding us toward personal growth and transformation. As individuals, we have the power to change ourselves, but we cannot control or change others. It is through inner work and healing that we can alter our energy and navigate the world with a newfound sense of clarity and purpose. However, this path is not without its challenges. As we evolve and grow, we may find that certain people in our lives fall away or respond with resistance. In this blog post, we will delve into the intricacies of this journey, exploring the transformative power of healing work, the importance of responsible communication, and the role of self-reflection in our connection with Spirit.
Embracing Change and Letting Go
As we embark on the path of self-transformation, it's natural for fear and uncertainty to arise. The familiar and comfortable may start to feel stagnant, and we may need to release attachments to...
Hey there, fellow wanderers of the wild and unpredictable adulting realm! Today I’d like to take you on a little journey that explores the untamed wilderness of the proverbial life crisis.
I know, I know, I feel like I can already hear you saying, “Oh no, this sounds like it’ll be really depressing.” But, stick with me here, because I would like to offer the perspective that going through my own life crisis was actually one of the best things that ever happened to me. Sure, it can be kind of terrifyingly depressing at first (I’m not one who is going to flat-out lie to you), but I also think that it can end up being a much-needed kick in the pants in life if you open yourself up to receive its bigger message. Much like anything else, though, it’s all about your perspective and what you choose to do with the experience. So, I’d like to take this opportunity to share my hot take on it and provide some new, fresh...
Art supplies can be very personal, and everyone will tell you something different, but if you don't know where to start, here are a few of my absolute favorites for creating.
Gesso is a must-have for painting and art journaling, the brand I use typically is Liquitex. I buy it in larger containers and add smaller amounts to a jar for ease of access, plus it keeps it cleaner. I think most brands would be fine I just know and love Liquitex.
I typically use Golden Matte Medium as my all-things collage adhesive, any time you need to stick something down this is perfect. Liquitex also has a great Matte Medium that I occasionally get. Matte is the finish, it also comes in gloss, but that to me is more for a final coat.
Gel Matte Medium is great for sticking things that are a little thicker or are not completely flat. It is also great to add to your paint to make it a bit more heavy bodied so you can add some texture. Again, I use Golden, but I am sure...
Limiting beliefs are thoughts and ideas that hold you back from reaching your goals in life. They can be the invisible walls that prevent you from taking the next big step or even reaching for a goal that seems out of reach. These negative thought patterns can be incredibly difficult to defeat because they are often deeply ingrained in our subconscious mind.
However, the CTFAR method, which stands for Circumstance, Thoughts, Feelings, Actions, and Results, is a powerful framework that can help you identify and overcome limiting beliefs. Let's take a closer look at each component of the CTFAR method:
Circumstance: This is the objective situation or event that triggers your thoughts.
Thoughts: These are the interpretations or meanings that you attach to the circumstance. They are often based on our past experiences, beliefs, and values.
Feelings: These are the emotional responses that your thoughts create. They can range from positive emotions, such as happiness and excitement, to...
Each day of the 5-Day Feminine Intuition Challenge we ran March 27-31, 2023
Today, we'll explore the basics of intuition and how you can recognize it in your life.
Take a few deep breaths and tune in to your body. Notice any physical sensations you may be experiencing. These sensations can be an indicator of your intuition. Trust your gut feeling, and allow yourself to follow its guidance.
Today's exercise is intuitive journaling. Take a few minutes to sit quietly and center yourself. Write down any questions or concerns that are on your mind. Without thinking too much, write down the first response that comes to mind. This response is likely coming from your intuition, so pay attention to it and trust it.
Today, we'll focus on cultivating trust in yourself and your intuition.
Think of a decision you need to make. Take a few deep breaths and tune in to your body. Notice any physical sensations you may be experiencing. Now, ask yourself: "What is my intuition...
