One thing that I’m constantly working on and evolving is my self care. It has many different forms as far as how I meet my emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual needs. It truly is a balancing practice. and I know what signals to look for within myself that let me know what I need and when.
The biggest thing I want to share with you today is that YOU need your time just as much as everyone else does. If you find yourself putting yourself on the back burner either inadvertently or consciously the below video is for you! Especially if
Sometimes life gets tough, heavy, and unexpected things happen. Things maybe we thought would never happen like a break up, loss of a job, or a death. A hard truth for me was learning that although I have people I love, people I even wish would stay forever in my life… but they might not stay forever. But the one thing I do have is me. I’ve made a commitment to always be here for me no matter who chooses to stay or go. Maybe you can relate, or are currently struggling with wanting people who
I’m writing to you from Costa Rica and it’s absolutely breath taking here. I’m staying at an incredible place near this volcano tonight. There tons of natural hot springs in this area and it’s felt ‘out of this world’ after flying and driving for so long.
There were lots of challenges today that turned out great (like driving up the steepest and rockiest “road” I’ve ever seen…it felt like we were going to drive right off the cliff) specifically because I made a choice not to dim my light, and decided I was going to be ok and
I can’t tell you how much I’ve personally suffered in some way because I grew up believing that someone else other than me was going to be my source of fulfillment… Do you resonate at all? And wow- what a trap to live life in a way where some other person or thing is your source and depending on how that relationship goes, your source may not always be available to you. The great news that I want to share with you is that no one but us can be the one to create the deep fulfillment that we crave.
Do you feel you have a tendency to take on other people’s problems and issues? Does it feel easy to take care of another person and put them before yourself? (This doesn’t include parent-child relationships). This was a HUGE one for me that I had to completely learn to do differently. I would find myself unconsciously taking on other peoples emotions, mistaking them for my own even. I would naturally try to rescue or fix things for others. Later on, I realized that the pattern was so deep in me that I questioned how lovable I really

You have a unique story that has helped shaped you and played a HUGE role in who you are today. This is true for all of us. We were born into circumstances and certain family dynamics that shaped our psychological patterning. We needed those traits as children. It’s how we survived. My old pattern of putting others first, being a care taker, and an egg shell walker were some of the traits that got me through childhood- just as your unique patterns got you through.
The great news is that now we are adults and we don’t
A lot of our mind chatter, or I like to call it “thought traffic” tends to be our own made up assumptions about life, people, things, etc. The thing is, we often make assumptions without even realizing it. It’s often unconscious. You may decide about the meaning of what someone says or does automatically- like if someone didn’t acknowledge you in an expected way. It’s easy to think that they must not like/love you anymore or something you did caused their behavior. If fact, most of our pain and discomfort comes from making assumptions that aren’t really true whether they are even about ourselves or the ones we love.
So many times I’ve found myself creating similar lessons again and again and feeling disappointed and frustrated about it. I would think; “but I’ve done so much work in this area! Why is it still not any different?” Then they were times where I would feel helpless and believe life would be like this…forever. Then I would go to a more dramatic place inside and feel absolutely victimized by life and it would sound something like “I guess I will just always have to deal with relationship stuff or business stuff” or (fill in the blank). It was usually in those low moments where I
When we are depleted and drained our energy is low and life isn’t so pretty. Does this happen to you? But what actually creates this state?
Our conditioning. If we had models that walked through life depleted and drained and even depressed than it’s easy to then find ourselves in that same situation playing out what we learned. Luckily we can unlearn our core beliefs and create new healthy ones…thanks to holistic therapies! At one point in my life someone in my life told me to take time out for myself. Truthfully, at the time I felt pissed off by that comment. What does that
Losing a loved one is devastating. I want you to know that I hear you. Whether it is an unexpected/expected loss of a love one passing away, a break up, or a major transition or change, it is absolutely understandable that grief will be present. We may have a grief process over something that maybe judged as small scale, but it still feels like a loss. What’s important to know about this is that it is ALL ok and needed. Most of all- when we let the grief flow it actually takes us somewhere… Then the healing and magic
