I have always had a thing about my weight that goes far back as I can remember. I remember in 4th grade noticing how much space my thighs took up when I was sitting at my desk chair. In middle school, I went through the same insecurities that a lot of you probably did too.Read More
There are a few times in our life where we experience concentrated expansive “spiritual growth”. (I use quotes because I believe that we are spiritual beings here for a human experience, so we’re not growing per se, but more like having a moment of massive remembering.) These growing spurts are called up-levels.Read More
Last week at library time, I was sitting next to a passing herd of children who were chasing a bubble machine being carried by the librarian through the room. As he weaved through the floor full of moms/nannies and kids, the kids squealed in delight at the sea of bubbles that were created behind him.Read More
The reality is that no matter how aligned, cleared out, or grounded you feel, there are going to be days (or maybe periods of life) where stuff just sucks. Things go wrong, you get triggered, feel lost on how to manage yourself, or just feel unable to do the right thing. IT HAPPENS.Read More
The holidays are awesome and special. We do so much (or so little!) to create memories for our littles.
And our spouses and partners like to as well.
Which is fine and dandy.
Except, they don’t always think like us which might trigger us a little.
I’ve always believed I had something special inside me. I’ve always felt like an outlier and it’s only been in the last third of my life, that I appreciated and loved that part of me.
And that something special is that I’m supposed to help you. I’m meant to share this very special “protocol” to help you get to YOU.
As Celine Dion once sang, "It's all coming back to me now..."
I'm opening up a free 3 day challenge...let's find the pieces of ourselves that we once had that made us feel amazing.
Celine's song has been "plaguing" me for the past few days. I finally played it while in the shower and this challenge came in to help us all heal a little. Let's do it! If you haven't done too much energy work lately (or ever), this is an easy way to get in touch with it.
My friend, Mariaestela, hosts a very deep thinking and talking spiritual podcast, The Magdalene Voices, and so when she invited me on, I was flattered—to say the least! (You’ve heard of Pam Grout—the author of E-Squared?? Yea, she had her on before!)
I was so excited to do this podcast with Mariaestela to talk about the spiritual side of pregnancy and raising babies (I use that term "babies" loosely--they will ALWAYS be our babies no matter the calendar). I sent my husband and little one out breakfast so I could record peacefully. It was a great time and she asked such good curious questions about the realm of my work.
Free Workbook to Figure Out Yours!
I want to shine a light on your parenting guidelines today.
What are those, you wonder?
I believe that we all use a personal set of guidelines for living with our children. What we have established as our place of “rules” is a mix of our own personal experiences (filled with good memories to maybe even hurtful difficult ones), what we’ve researched, what we’ve used that we had success or failure with, what we’ve witness work or fail in other families, past life stuff, and current energetic stuff we got going on.
Think about you much???
We are in the homestretch…it’s the end of the year when all the holiday fun and madness is about to start. Halloween is this week, then Thanksgiving before you know it, Christmas and Hanukkah preparation is in full swing, then New Years. It’s the crazy fun time of year.
Please don’t get lost in the shuffle. I know you are working to make all the holidays super magical for your family. It takes a lot of work, effort, and thought. You enjoy it, you love it, I know. But I also know that it’s important (necessary) to take care of yourself to keep your energy up and well.
So a possible trigger warning...
Today's post comes with a heavy heart. I write tonight thinking of all the moms and families that have grieved the loss of a child during pregnancy or infancy.
As you may know, today is Pregnancy & Infant Loss Remembrance Day.
This is Part 2 of another post, "When You Don't Feel the Bond with Your Baby."
Let's address #2: The energy and emotions that occur prior to delivery will be in your baby's system.
We are collections of life experiences from this current time and past. We are collections of beliefs. We are collections of other's people's energies.Read More
I watched an episode of "Empty Nest" this morning where Carol was freaking out that she didn't feel a bond with her baby when she was four months pregnant. She checked off 20 physical symptoms that indicated she was having the perfect pregnancy.Read More
I was cleaning out my son's room (again) trying to simplify and reduce. I came across a silk scarf and was thinking about a blog post I had seen about great open-end toys; scarves were on the list.
A scarf could be so many things: pirate headpiece, the ground for a round of make-believe with toy animals, a princess skirt, an apron for kitchen time, etc.
As I was recalling the many applications of a scarf, something came up in my system.Read More
Walking my little guy the other day, getting fresh air to clear out my energy system, I had a significantly large concept hit me.
As I watch my little boy grow up, I too, am changing.
No one talks about this.Read More
I sat there for about an hour by myself. Watched the Sunday morning walkers with their dogs and babies. Watched the old men sit and shoot the breeze. I thought about a lot of things while I glided back and forth basking in the sunshine of the early, but hot, morning.
Suddenly my thoughts were interrupted by an old man’s voice. “Morning, little lady.”Read More
