The Alchemy of Healing: From Wounded to Warrior

I was nine years old. It was a lazy summer day. The afternoon heat simmered with the salty tang of ocean air and the moist, earthy smell that only flowers well kissed by the rain can have. The doorbell rang. Curiosity piqued, I padded to the stairs to lean over the railing to see who it was. There was something different about her, my mother’s friend. Through the lens of my child’s eyes, I felt inextricably drawn to a radiance, light, and calm that this woman possessed. I played near the couch facing the ocean; one ear piqued towards the soft lilt of feminine voices in the background. She sat down next to me, giving me her presence and undivided … Read More

Unraveling Self-Worth: Discovering the Key Ingredient to Our Personal Freedom and Success

When I was first starting to build my coaching and healing practice, as much as I felt excited, I also felt really overwhelmed, scared, and vulnerable. Newly graduated from an intensive, 3-year, Master’s program in Mindfulness-based Transpersonal Counseling Psychology, (yes, that’s actually listed on my diploma) I had tremendous confidence in my skills, level of experience and capacity to work adeptly with others. Even with all of my extensive training, I was never given a roadmap to know how to build a successful business. The idea of putting myself out there and creating a practice from the ground up felt daunting. In the early stage of my business, I felt paralyzed by everything I had to do. I had a … Read More

Intuitive Alignment- Re-connecting to Our Intuitive Ground

As an intuitive mentor, healer, and fellow spiritual explorer, I encounter a lot of individuals who have a longing to be connected to their intuition. They yearn to be in a state of flow and trust in their natural direction and inner wisdom. The ironic thing is most people are already accessing their intuition on a daily basis.

Why do I feel overwhelmed and like the path ahead is unclear? Why do I still feel trapped and misaligned with the love, abundance, and freedom I desire? The quick answer is, … Read More

The 8 Most Common Ways We Leak Energy

As energetically sensitive and empathic individuals, we are often an open channel and vacuum for everything in our most immediate environment, and exceedingly sensitive to the larger context of our collective consciousness and global climate. Part of my journey in learning how to nurture my soul amidst the heightened sensitivity I experience has been learning to become a bad-ass in the art of having very clearly defined boundaries. Believe me, I wasn’t always a bad-ass at it. There was a steep learning curve for a while as I learned to love and respect myself, honor my truth, and not compromise any part of who I was. My journey isn’t over in this regard. This process of alignment and surrender is … Read More

The Art of Embodied Listening

The new year is traditionally a time of resolution. We take stock of the past year and decide how we’d like to change or do better. We renunciate what isn’t working and are filled with a renewed sense of hope. We are infused with a sense of possibility and confidence in our ability to achieve the goals or outcomes we may have missed over the past year. Suddenly, as the clock turns 12:00 A.M. and we cross the threshold into the next year, it’s as if for just a moment we are free of the weight of our problems. The next year sparkles ahead blissfully unformed with the vast spaciousness and room to finally make our dreams a reality. Our … Read More
