It’s never Complete, is that true?

It’s never Complete, is that true?

Yes. It’s never “complete”. And. There are many things that have a clear beginning and a clear ending. Your life for example. Has a clear beginning and end. The creation of your dinner has a clear beginning and end. Your menstrual bleeding has a clear beginning and a clear end. You’re life is filled with cycles of beginning and ending. It is simply that you are disconnected to the innate gratitude and honoring of those transitions and cycles that are actually very natural to you as a woman. When you begin to feel into the rhythm of your womb a whole world of divine timing wakes up inside of you and the process of learning how to ride the wave of the unknown with your own plans begins. And then you begin to just FEEL when something is about to begin, or about to end. And you can more easily trust and surrender into that, even when it’s challenging. Here are a few things you can do to heal the rush monster, speed disease, frenetic energy and confusion that might be running your world: 1) Smaller creative projects: When I started making Malas, I loved them for many reasons. What I see now is that making malas has a clear beginning and a clear end. And it’s physical, tangible, and visual. When I hold a completed mala in my hands a sense of completion comes over that feels so good. When I send off a mala to a client, I feel this sense of release in my womb and body, like I’m releasing the energy of a creation she...

Feminine Rhythm Toolbox: Re-Rhythm-ing, Fennel Bulb Pesto, and What is a Mala?

What a week! My personal theme has been Re-Rhythm-ing and  I have gifts for you that reflect this. 1) A peak into how to follow your own womb rhythm 2) A delicious recipe that will soothe your digestive system and excite your taste buds 3) I am Strong Mala + What is a Mala? 4) A look inside one of my journal pages on Re-Rhythm-ing. I’ve been posting more frequently and making videos inside our FB group as I’ve been inside my womb cave doing my practices, healing, resting, and gathering my energy. To join us there instructions are at the end of this blog. Womb Rhythms: The rhythm of your body, your womb, inside your pelvic space will speak to you in vibrations. She will tell you how she wants to live, how she wants to be. She will guide you into living and structuring your day based on her rhythms and cycles. What a beautiful terrifying thing to surrender to! Listen deeply sisters. Listen deeply. Its in the quiet conversations that you have with your self and your body and your surroundings that you hear whats really going on, and you can begin to slough off what is not truly you. It feels like shaking. Internal shaking. Let it shake. You get still. Breath. AHhhhhhhhhhh. Cry. Ahhhhhhhhhhh Laugh. Rage. Joy. And the world will spin around you until you feel your center. And YOU will not be inside the hampster wheel feeling taken from and obligated. Running. Running. Running. You will no longer be running. You will be blossoming in the dark quiet stillness of your own...
Rose Water Mint Lemonade- Cool your body and Nourish your senses

Rose Water Mint Lemonade- Cool your body and Nourish your senses

The last few weeks for me have been spent retreating during my moontime, and creating a practice of self care that I’ve honestly never had before. I’m using my interest in ayurveda, chinese 5 element theory, and my mogadao sacred daoist sexuality training as a backbone for what I’m crafting. Currently I have a 3-4ish hour morning practice that I LOVE and that includes lots of self massage, meditation, and cleansing. It feels amazing to be grounding in these habits and I’m learning SO much about how to be accepting of myself, present with my body, and lots of parts of my body are getting attention they never got like my gums ( I started massaging them this week in the morning after oil pulling) and my elbows, and the under part of my knees. My ear lobes and jaw are getting tons of attention and release and I’m sleeping more than ever, beginning to wake up earlier. THIS IS SO EXCITING AND I’M SO PROUD OF MYSELF 🙂 In my quest to balance my energy I’ve been following a diet that will reduce the amount of heat ( fire or pitta, the ayurvedic term) in my body. Excess heat is common in the summer time and also for those of us with a tendency for an over active mind, self judgement and punishment. The general American Cultural go get it, have it all at once, do it all now, never enough, climb your way to the top performance based mindset really.  Excess heat can look like red, inflamed rash, acne, cold sores acute inflammation in body or joints...

Astrologer, Chani Nicholas says generosity and connection are two main qualities of Venus and Jupiter. This is what the ending of June has brought us to. A new realization about what connection and...
I Wrote, For The Man I Couldn’t Let Go

I Wrote, For The Man I Couldn’t Let Go

When Miriam first came to see me, she had a lot to say and feel. But I knew very quickly we were meant to work together. Watching her grow in her 8 weeks with me was such a blessing. The one thing I saw in her from the moment I met her was her inner leader. It was after she took a big risk with a man that I knew it was time to nudge her to write about it and share her experience. What I didn’t know was how eloquent of a writer she is. I am honored to share it with you. It’s honest. It’s beautiful. And it’s real. I edited it a bit, but as a writer I know what it is to infuse emotional resonance into a story and to write in a such a way that exactly how it is written is how it is mean to be read for the story to be felt. Like how certain words are capitalized when grammatically they shouldn’t be. She’s making a point with her choices in sentence length, word style, and flow.  Miriam turns out to be a natural genius at this. If you read carefully you can see the clarity and awareness she has in her own instictual feelings and intiution, I wish I could say she learned it all from me, but that would be giving me too much credit. Let’s just say I allowed her space to bring it. I loved getting to witness this part of her. This is her experience. A snapshot of a real moment in time when she let...
