Sometimes when the world seems impossibly heavy, the best place to go is into gratitude. Life is hard. It doesn’t come with a manual or rulebook and that’s what I’ve spent the majority of my recent years trying to provide. That’s the purpose of my work.
Gratitude has a way of switching us from a place of despair to a place of gratefulness. No matter the circumstance, there’s always an opportunity. Capital T traumas aren’t the opportunity, but the person one becomes when they survive them often use them to find their superpower.
It is in these moments of complete…
Sometimes we look back and realize we called it years before it happened. Is that intuition or did we create it? I think there’s a little bit of both happening there.
We are gifted creatures, we’re given these 5 senses of which to perceive the world, and they all help us get in touch with our physical understanding of our surroundings. We’re also covering up our depression and anxiety with pharmaceuticals that aren’t working as long-term solutions because we’re living in ways that are out of alignment with our truth.
I’ve been there, swallowing the Zoloft so I could hop…
I once had a dear friend express how important it was to take a day of rest. I mean, God did after all.
In these gifts of the week, when hopefully things aren’t planned, magic can manifest. Not long ago, our family rushed out the door with a late decision to commit to church. From there, our day unfolded into ridge line hikes with the pup, the first sun kiss of the year, a meal that tantalized our taste buds, and the chance to be in love as an entire family unit.
As a parent, these opportunities don’t come along…
Breathwork is named this because it puts you directly in confrontation with your work. Not a fan of confrontation? Probably not going to be a fan of breathwork. It’s funny to see how many Aries people love the practice.
In all seriousness, I hate confrontation, but I hate unbalanced energy even more. The first time I breathed, I walked away and had found my no. It brought up my most authentic self and the world never looked the same.
I was fed up with the way I’d been doing things, allowing people to walk on me, not standing up for…
A while back I was trying to get my daughter out of the house for school and it was one loss of patience after another. I was craving reflection time, just a few moments of quiet before digging into the day of work ahead. Our boys had already caught the bus and all she wanted to do was sit down for a conversation.
On our way to her school, we were talking about our responsibility in getting ready and listening while I grappled with setting boundaries for a 4-year-old through a loving lens. …
Morning routines are helpful because they give us an intentional moment to tune in and be with ourselves before taking on the world and all it has to offer. Oftentimes, simple awareness of a situation allows for a slight energetic shift softening the experience of whatever it is that is speaking to us.
This can be noticed by recognizing upon waking whether or not you’re starting the day from the right or wrong side of the bed. Did you dream and wake feeling hopeful about the magic that exists every day? …
The Tao that can be told, is not the eternal Tao.
The name that can be named; is not the eternal name.
The Tao is both named and nameless
As nameless it is the origin of all things;
as named it is the Mother of 10,000 things.
Ever desireless, one can see the mystery;
ever desiring, one sees only the manifestations.
And the mystery itself is the doorway
to all understanding.
This blog began as a dedication to gratitude, the power of prayer, the witness of daily miracles. I usually draft write, then see what happens in a week…
In a time and space where the world became still one year ago, Louisville, KY remained in the center. A young wise woman once told me Louisville is a vortex, a place that attracts energy in an effort to transform, to morph into it’s highest potential.
This has been affirmed by naturalists who point out the age of our land as some of the oldest in the world, by the massive healing community we have considering our geographical location and size, and the events of 2020, both when the world experienced a pandemic and the death of Breonna Taylor that…
