Reconnecting with my body, and my new favorite workout{s}

I once had someone ask me when the last time I was happy with my body. I stopped and thought about it… have I ever been truly happy with my body? Maybe not… Over the past five years I’ve spent a huge amount of time investing in and developing my connection with my own energy, and with my spirit… learning meditation and clairvoyance… and it changed so much of my life. But in the same way I’ve developed those aspects of myself, I realized that I don’t often have a very strong connection to or communication with my body. So it’s…

{someone hates me} I’ve finally made it!

I think I experienced a significant milestone on the blog last week, my first hate comment. It was so exciting! What made it even more amazing was that it was a comment on my post about meditation. Seriously. Not super zen. In that very post that elicited such a strong response I talked about growing up a serious people-pleaser. For most of my life I sought validation from making other people happy, and I felt wrong and like I wasn’t enough if someone was unhappy with me, like I’d failed as a person somehow. I grew up and went into a creative profession,…

Maybe you’ve never thought about meditation… but maybe you should!

  I don’t usually advertise events here, and I’d be perfectly happy keeping my meditation school my own little magical secret, but this place is pretty awesome, and so if you were ever thinking about maybe checking out a meditation class – this is the one to take. InVision is offering their signature Psychic Meditation Class for the last time this year starting this week. I started to write some of my own story to share what a profound impact it has had on my life. But then it got really long. So I’ll save that for some other, maybe a few other,…

You’ll never really be ‘ready’, so what are you waiting for?

I saw this quote the other day and I thought – yep, he pretty much nailed it. Except that now is better. Always. I’ve started several new things this year, and am getting the momentum that I want in some areas more than others… so I’ve been really looking for myself at where have I been taking steps and where have I been a little afraid or hesitant? I’m realizing that, at least for myself, often when I’m thinking of what I want to create, what I’m picturing is that thing more fully developed than the next step I will literally…

The Pope, the Dalai Lama, and doing what you really want

I saw an article last week saying that the Pope met with that Kim Davis lady before he left the US but he decided not to meet with the Dalai Lama, because of concerns about what China might do in response. Really? Well, I don’t really care about Kim Davis, but the whole – he’s not going to meet with the Dalai Lama thing got me thinking… I mean, it’s the Pope, and the Dalai Lama. Two pretty big deal dudes. I would think that if the Pope wants to have communication with someone, he would have it, and no one is going to…

The magic of a little, or a lot

I really listen to my intuition… all the time and for pretty much everything. Both for myself and when I’m working with clients on different projects. Having that kind of communication and knowingness is really magical and makes pretty much everything more validating and awesome. Nothing like being able to really tune into what’s right for you, or someone else, to create just the perfect thing in any given moment. Today I was getting frustrated because I couldn’t decide what I wanted to eat for dinner, and there’s nothing I like less these days than indecision or uncertainty. Never validating….

final touches on the patio, and tuning in to your intuition

While building the planter was a big DIY adventure for me and there was a distinct finish line to be crossed with that part of the project alone, the patio as a whole isn’t quite complete yet. I went ahead and splurged on the amazing mint green chairs, but I still need a few final touches before it’s officially done. Namely, a side table-ish something, some pillows, a throw maybe… you know, the fluff that makes it feel cozy and like you can really settle in and relax. I think that this photo of the chair subconsciously inspired me to…
