I Am the Ashes

I’m not rising from the ashes…I am the ashes because I am part of all that is. And so are you!

I’ve been cut by the edges of life and felt wild with grief.

My body has undergone half a dozen surgeries in less than a dozen months and I’ve welcomed chemicals into my body I once viewed as poison.

My most dignified moment was when I used my voice and rescued myself from death.

I stood up and I am here because of it.

No longer do I feel wild with grief. I am cancer free, finished with chemo and surgery, and now with Herceptin infusions as well!

All of this fills me with deep appreciation!

I feel stronger and stronger every day and yet, sometimes I’m so afraid I’m not done, I‘m frozen in place.

There are moments when I see myself standing in front of a moving sidewalk and feel completely exhilarated so hop on!

But sometimes, I just stand there in fear because the sidewalk is moving too fast and I’m not up to jumping on. I’m not up to anything.

When the negative narrator within hijacks my story, things can go dark.

On the days when my energy supply runs dry & I feel my body cave under the weight of the fear of “What if the cancer is back” I have to be still. In my stillness I’m often able to quiet the voice within, summon my higher-soul-self and connect with the Divine. It is within that light, that I am free.

No one is immune to the dark and light of life. I’m even more convinced now than ever, post- breast cancer diagnosis that we can steer the wheel, pump the brakes, and hit the gas in life and all of that makes a huge difference…but we don’t build every road. There are some constructed long before we were born. Our job is to navigate and enjoy what we can of the ride.

So on this ride, love and be loved, forgive and be forgiven, and take a leap of faith over and over again. Grab the hands of those you love, feel the wind on your face and allow the light to lead you.

So on this ride, love and be loved, forgive and be forgiven, and take a leap of faith over and over again. Grab the hands of those you love, feel the wind on your face and allow the light to lead you.

You are love and light in action!

Writing Myself Back Into Balance

Masonic Cancer Clinic

One Foot and One Thought at a Time

One foot and one thought at a time. I am strong. I am a warrior and this is not my first battle. And I battle not alone. I stand not alone. Beside me are the women and men who fought before me and fight still. We have been cut, burned and poisoned so that we may stay alive. Cancer has robbed us of more than our health. We walk the path and make our choices, one foot in front of the other; one chosen thought after the other. I am strong and I am restored through the grace of G-d and my own will. What has come upon me does not make me or break me. I am strong. I am a warrior. I am here, I am whole, I am now.

And I Am Blogging!

I have an anniversary coming up. It’s a bad one. On August 6th, 2021, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Fast forward several ugly moments. The night before the surgery that would remove the cancer and both of my breasts, I posted a link to my blog on social media.

Here’s how the blog post started…

It is estimated that 281,550 people will be diagnosed with breast cancer in 2021. On August 6th, 2021, I became one of them…. I had been having a series of odd and ominous visions for months and they always left me feeling foggy. (Read post)

Writing Myself Back Into Balance

As I’ve said, I write to release the part of me that is speechless. I write myself back into balance. I write myself free. Free of the burden of carrying a secret. Free of caring what other people think.

One of the first things that hit me after being diagnosed with cancer was the beauty of the people in my life. The amazing support continues to hold me up when I cannot stand on my own. This includes the sweet, supportive comments on my social media posts. I read them before I go into surgery…and I read them prior to each and every round of chemo therapy and Herceptin infusion.

Love is an energy and yours has filled me up. Thank you.

I started this Blog to reach people; people like you. I love to write about spirit connection and speaking the language of intuition. Helping people nourish their insightful side energizes me in no small way. As a child, knowing something about how to access my intuition provided incredible, useful insight for me and saved my life more than once. I love helping people access their natural intuition. 

As our souls expand so too do our intuitive abilities. 

My intuition has been beside me through this chapter of my life. In the months prior to my diagnosis I experienced flashes of my death. Even with all the odd intuitive-alerts I’d been receiving, the actual cause of what I was seeing on the screen in my head either escaped me or was deliberately not presented.

I would have liked to have hit the fast forward button in the story…the story of my soul, but being present is what propels the soul forward. So present I remained.

No one wants to ever be told they have cancer. These are words that break your heart, shatter your hope, and forever change your life and the lives of those you hold most dear.

As I said, I love to write myself back into balance. Today I began putting together some of the more compelling, uplifting things I’ve written and read so that when I am feeling low, I can access them without effort. I thought I would share some of them with you.

You will see some Facebook, twitter, and blog post links, quotes and some humor-infused stuff as well. 

When in doubt…

Once people learn you have or had breast cancer, plenty of them look immediately at your chest. Even the most conscious, cool people do this. Natural curiosity is the cause I guess. Chances are, I unconsciously did the same thing, prior to my own diagnosis. In an effort to regain a little dignity, I purchased this shirt!

I didn’t write this but I do wear it!

January 19th 2022 Facebook post

TODAY, I completed chemo round 10 and have only 2 more to go!

As I sat down to post this photo, I realized most of my posts are fun and flattering. This photo is neither. The reason I say this is because no matter how you slice it, having chemotherapy and the reasons behind it are not fun. A cancer diagnosis is frightening.

I am blessed with amazing support from family, friends and people like you and am filled with appreciation! And guess what…my prognosis is good!

Nevertheless, I have my down days and sometimes they turn into weeks. I’m working hard to maintain my connection with the light from within by honoring my feelings and finding a safe place to express and explore them.

As I’ve long said, we are all beloved children of the Universe.

So when I walk, I walk with Faith and Grace beside me!

 

Me and Chemo! Blog post

This is the story of chemotherapy and me.

If you have ever lost hope and found it again…or wish to find it again, this blog post is for you.

I love people sight unseen and have always been pretty good at maintaining my happy or at least neutral even during pandemic times. Don’t get me wrong, I have had my share of blue moments, dark, dark blue in fact. As a result of surviving them, I felt less crushable.

There’s just something about being diagnosed with breast cancer and almost losing my life that set me on a different trail and it wasn’t one I wanted to be on. So I started telling myself a different story.

Here’s a little story about chemotherapy and me. It’s a story about hope, faith and appreciation.

If anyone would’ve suggested five years ago that I would make friends with chemo, I would’ve thought they had been smoking some funny stuff…Here’s more about my crush on chemo!

April 6th, 2022 Facebook post

I’m two months out from completing chemo and two weeks out from my last surgery.

After I was diagnosed with breast cancer the best I could do was remain alert and alive to each moment.

My goal was not to suppress my feelings and emotions, it was to keep moving and stay alive. I pushed on with great care and processed what I could as events unfolded. And I promised myself to come back later to help the rest of me catch up.

I’m in the process of processing and healing.

I feel so much gratitude and appreciation for where I am. And that I am.

You see my world kind of blew up. And when I went to gather the pieces, I noticed there were various significant parts of me missing.

I found I didn’t fit in in some of the places and even in some of the clothes I once treasured.

What’s more, a few of my core beliefs went poof after my cancer diagnoses, which opened me up to a whole new level of other-worldly knowledge.

I observed that I now love even bigger and my heart is more often full. I’m using this experience to narrow things down on my life’s must do list.

All the unfinished chapters in my soul-story now have even more of my attention.

It’s important for me to say, there is nothing gift-like about being diagnosed with cancer. Whatever goodies I glean is a bonus I’ve given to myself.

I’ve had to sacrifice a part of myself to stay alive and though I’m rooted in appreciation for my life, the diagnosis is still new and I still mourn.

Anyone who thinks a strong woman is one who does not show emotion hasn’t met me.

Life gives and takes. It’s what we do with what we get that matters in the end.

Faith and poise accompany me as I move steadily through the transitions that deepen the colors of my soul.

My superpower has always been in my ability to love, and I love bigger now than ever!

April 21st, 2022 Facebook post

My expression when I’m in receiving mode intuitively speaking.

Treating for a cancer diagnosis has allowed me more downtime. And in that time I connect with my higher-soul-self as often as possible.

I’m not in thought. I am connected to how I feel and how the energy around me is communicating through my ability to consciously feel.

Our feelings truly are the wings of our intuition. If you wish to be more insightful learn to move your attention away from what you are thinking and tune into how you are feeling.

You truly are love and light in action!

Self-care baby! And self-care is soul-care! Here’s to everyone taking care of themselves

body

mind and spirit!

Our feelings are the wings of our intuition. So don’t ask me to mask mine. I won’t do it.

Endings are Just a Warm Up for New Beginnings

It’s springtime in the Northern Hemisphere and Autumn in the Southern Hemisphere.

New beginnings are upon us!

This is an essential time on our planet and managing the recurrent, somewhat wild energy that floats around and within intermittently can be a challenge. So if you are seeking balance, this blog post is for you!

Equinox

There was an Equinox on March 20th. At the equinox, night and day are thought to be equal in length. The word equinox comes from the Latin word aequus, meaning equal and nox which means night.

The Equinox is about balance and equality.

Everyone counts!

The divine masculine and divine feminine within

We all have feminine and masculine qualities within.

Masculine qualities are, in a nutshell associated with doing…taking action, meaning creating in the outside world. Feminine qualities are associated with being…creating from within and intuition.

Finding balance between the masculine and feminine within is extraordinarily impactful.

The power is within our ability to integrate equality and balance internally

When we are off balance, we fear what our mind is reflecting back to us. When we are in rhythm with our spirit, we fear nothing. When the divine feminine and masculine within are in sync we can be and do with strength and grace.

Our world is filled with magnificence

We live in a beautiful world and I am glad to be alive. The ugly acts of some do not make the rest of us less lovable. As I move through my day and through the process of dealing with a cancer diagnosis I remind myself that the world is beautiful because the love in each of us lights it up.

In the moments where I feel sad and defeated, I get my body moving and fill my mind with thoughts that throw me into neutral or at least slow down the rapid-fire voice of the negative narrator within.

You know, that judgmental voice chatting away, it is the negative narrator and it hails from your unconscious. It’s the little presence that comments, critiques, and criticizes. The positive narrator, while likewise coming from the back of your mind, is connected to your higher-knowing soul-self — which is why it is positive. It “sees” things, and therefore narrates from an elevated perspective.

The narrator narrates based on our interpretation of what is happening. You can regulate the negative and positive narrators through your mood.

That is why I write positive affirmations, inspirational quotes, books, blogs…and well, you get the picture. The content helps me feel good or at least better. As a result, I radiate a happier vibe and am sticky for the good instead of sticky for the icky.

This is where being balanced from within helps us flourish.

We do have the power to magnetize to ourselves the most joy possible and to choose the way we deal with what occurs. And that is a lot of power, but we are not G-d.

It’s what we do with what we get that matters in the end. So whatever you are dealing with, know that the Universe has your back and that you walk with faith and grace beside you. Do things that make you smile. Find something to appreciate at the top of every waking hour and tune into yourself as your vibration steadily rises. The positive narrator will then be the voice you hear whispering in the back of your mind!

Vibration raising tools and techniques

In addition to maintaining a sense of balance, it is highly worthwhile to talk about your feelings. Allow what is weighing you down some air-time. Exercise good boundaries and express yourself!

~When your hurt feels bigger than your heart, inhale, exhale, and release. Then wiggle your wings and fly out of your head and back into your heart.~

Me and Chemo

This is the story of chemotherapy and me.

If you have ever lost hope and found it again…or wish to find it again, this blog post is for you.

GRACE LIVES IN COURAGE

Here’s a little story about chemotherapy and me. It’s a story about hope, faith and appreciation.

If anyone would’ve suggested five years ago that I would make friends with chemo, I would’ve thought they had been smoking some funny stuff.


Chemotherapy is for people who are really ill, deathly ill. Everything about it scared me.

I had been through a lot including standing up to mean-spirited people as a child and to spooky sad ghosts as an adult so I was not lacking courage. I didn’t feel completely exempt from bad things happening; I just felt I could handle what occurred, come what may.

I’m all about karma, you know the law of cause-and-effect. I’ve long kept my thoughts pretty light and my spirit high so I thought I could protect the world…or at least my world. My understanding of the law of attraction left no room for something so bad. Not that bad. Not chemo bad.

I love people sight unseen and have always been pretty good at maintaining my happy or at least neutral even during pandemic times. Don’t get me wrong, I have had my share of blue moments, dark, dark blue in fact. As a result of surviving them, I felt less crushable.

There’s just something about being diagnosed with breast cancer and almost losing my life that set me on a different trail and it wasn’t one I wanted to be on. Yet I couldn’t get off.


I never dreamed I would be facing my own death by way of an infection gone wild that took hold during my first surgery. 

After being diagnosed, I lost my balance and thought I had cancer because I had done something wrong. Hadn’t loved enough. Didn’t care enough.

After some soul-searching I realized that cancer is the one who didn’t care.

Cancer doesn’t care who you are, who you love, where you live, your age, your income, your status on social media, or how healthy you’ve always been. 

Cancer feeds on what we breathe, drink, smell and eat. 

Never has it been more clear to me that there are some things that happen in life over which we have no control.

Life gives and takes. It’s what we do with what we get that has the most power.

PROCESSING

Processing emotional baggage can be a messy and draining process. It takes time to find resolve.

I’ve been working hard to maintain my connection with the light from within by honoring my feelings and finding a safe place to express and explore them.

Allowing feelings to be felt for some, is unpopular and off limits. It’s too bitter and too messy. Yet we are freed when we allow what brews within…out.

We must care about ourselves enough to aim for the light and go deep. It’s good self-care. And good self-care is good soul-care. When we clear out the dark thoughts that haunt and hurt us, the light has a chance to shine from within.

There are some wounds that heal and reopen. If this happens, please don’t let it break your heart. It’s part of the evolution of the soul.

You gotta move through your sad to find your happy. Along the way do things that bring you joy. Focus on the fabulous or at least less crappy around you. Be okay with taking one step at a time. Represent yourself unapologetically.

Watch and listen for the irony and humor in day to day situations. And be sure to be open to signs from the Universe. Signs that show you how loved you truly are.

Because you are.

CHEMO, THE MAGICAL POTION

So about me and chemo.

I’m in a relationship with chemotherapy.

I am open to its chemical magic.

As it makes its way through my bloodstream it kills cancer cells. What’s more, it teaches every healthy cell in my body to stay together and not split and create cancerous tumors.

Chemo knows its job.

Its impact is felt on numerous levels. It has often knocked me out as it kicked cancers ass.

Thankfully, the human body is regenerative and miraculous.

The stakes are always high where chemo is concerned.

I am grateful for the magic.

I am glad to be alive.

SURROUNDED BY TALENT

As for me, I have been surrounded by talent. The talent of magical practitioners who love their trade and heal the world one patient at a time.

The heaviness that shadowed me has been lifted. I feel raw and free. I’m dancing around my kitchen again and even want to write.

I write to free myself of the heaviness I’ve carried because of a mass, half the size of a pea, that once made its home in my left breast at 12 o’clock.

Flipping My Thoughts from Heavy to Light

I’ve recently written a range of blog posts yet have not published even one of them. They were in part too blunt and too dark for my comfort zone. So I borrowed parts of one of them and included it in my latest newsletter. So for those of you who receive my newsletter, some of this (modified) blog post may seem seem familiar.

I have changed both physically and emotionally.

It now takes me longer to find my happy.

My willingness to find it however has not changed. It’s part of me.

Before I was diagnosed with breast cancer in August of 2021, I had the strangest feeling that I was going to die. I almost did due in part to a nasty infection that occurred after the first of four surgeries.

I’m happy to say I no longer have that awful feeling any longer. I’m also happy to say I am cancer free.

So here’s a blog post that includes some shade though it is not absent of light.

Every picture tells a story. And so does every quote. Here are some  written in the past that are helping me in my present.

Faith and Grace

–Faith and poise accompany me as I move steadily through the transitions that deepen the colors of my soul.

–It’s better to heal the wound than to hold the hurt and wear the scar.

–I feel empowered by my willingness to feel my feelings no matter how big, small, dark, or light they may be.

I believe in the power of self-acceptance. I am confident, strong, brave and beautiful.

–Happiness is good for the immune system because happiness is good for everything.

–In matters of soul, nothing is impossible. Grace lives in courage.

I’ve been talking to my past to help make sense of my present.

I’ve questioned my faith, my intuition and my strength.

The past months have been filled with prayers, tears, procedures, doctor appointments, grief, surgeries, sleep and a deeply felt appreciation for every word, card, post, like, flower, gift, dinner, hug, and shoulder extended to me during this strange and rather bleak part of my life story. 

It’s a different kind of chapter and one I didn’t anticipate. So I’m highlighting every good moment in my mind and holding it close. This is my way of bringing joy back into my life so I can write a happy ending into this chapter.

The whole thing is a process. It’s not really possible for me to fake feeling my light. In order to feel it I have to clear my darkness.

While in the midst of it, such a path feels unbearable; as though I am drowning in air.

Move through the darkness as a path to the light.

Love yourself by being yourself.

After my first surgery, my health took a swift decline due in part to a serious infection. There was a time when I was too sick to be scared. I just wanted my life back.

Thankfully, I have my life back.

It includes chemo.

I’ve tightened up my team of doctors and am doing the same for my boundaries.

I noticed before I was diagnosed that for some reason, people -and I truly mean well-meaning people- sometimes ask some pretty personal questions of those dealing with cancer. I’m certain I’ve done this my share of times. We are all learning.

In the silence of knowing this, I fill myself with light.

I just wish that when people ask me cancer-related-questions I’m not comfortable answering, I could always politely decline and when pushed, lightly say…”My body, my breasts, my business.” 

Someday…It’s a process.

And speaking of processing…

I am happy to announce I will be resuming work on a part-time basis and once I process previously slated appointments, will be opening scheduling back up. Look for more information sometime in early 2022. Until then, please check out my Awareness Building Tools and Techniques, Mini-Podcasts, Upcoming Events, and Media Appearances!

Through The Power of Soul

It is estimated that 281,550 people will be diagnosed with breast cancer in 2021. On August 6th, 2021 I became one of them.

I have several close family members who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. Thank G-d, they are all survivors.

For years, my breast health has been watched very carefully by a team of medical experts at Piper Breast Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Every year for well over a decade, I’ve had a mammogram followed six-months later by a breast MRI. While neither can cure cancer, both are tools that can provide early detection. I am eternally grateful for early detection.

Add to that, I’ve had loads of genetic testing. The results were negative which in this case is positive. Meaning the results did not point toward cancer.

Over the years, I’ve doused myself with doctor prescribed creams, taken a number of supplements, eaten more fruits and veggies than meat, exercised regularly and filled myself up with light nearly every single day.

Despite my diligence, I am on the sad side of a statistic. Thank G-d; the medical community knows so much about turning those with breast cancer into survivors!  

You may be wondering where my intuition has been through all of this. The answer is, right by my side.

I had been having a series of odd and ominous visions for months and they always left me feeling foggy.

When in July, I went in for my usual routine MRI, I felt extra nervous. As I approached the check-in desk, I saw my life flashing before me. I remember looking at my husband and saying, “My life is flashing in front me, this can’t be good.”

It wasn’t. The radiologist saw something that was not there six months before.  

On August 5th I had an MRI-guided biopsy.

When the call from the doctor’s office came in late the afternoon of the 6th, I was in my bedroom talking with my middle son Aaron and husband Jason.  

I answered the phone and wasn’t completely surprised when I heard what I dreaded. Words I wish no one ever had to hear. Words that broke my heart, shattered my hope, and changed my life and the lives of the people most dear to me. Moreover, the words matched the pictures I had been seeing on the screen in my head for ten days straight.

A feeling of nausea set in and it still has not completely vacated. 

This is all new to me and my family. We have been taking time to process and gather expert medical information. I bounce from tears to anger to a kind of overwhelming fear. A fear I have never experienced before and I have been through my share of big stuff.

Yet the other day I found myself singing and dancing in my car. I am moving forward on this new path.

I will not be working for about six weeks because I’ll be healing from surgery. So if you don’t see a tweet or post for a while, you know why.

At some point, I may be open to advice but that time is not now.

I’m praying for strength and healing. I’m praying for my family; this is incredibly difficult for them. And I am accepting all the good energy that comes my way!

Keep your light bright…I can feel it!

The Secret About Your Intuition

You were at your most intuitive the day you were born.

Somehow, so many of us were talked out of trusting our gut through unconscious messages sent by well-meaning adults. The good news is, intuition is our birthright and it is easy to awaken!

When fear hits the air, it is exposed to the light. There are some misconceptions about the intuitive process meaning psychic intuition, that I would like to shed some light on.

1. Intuition isn’t earned, it is awakened.

2. Everyone is intuitive. Everyone.

3. Intuition is not evil. Love is certainly not evil and love and intuition are born of the same source.

Your perception of the world goes beyond intellect and belongings. Your spirit is wise and knows you are divinely connected to the light of the Universe. When you feel even a glimpse of joy, hope, love, appreciation and/or happiness, that connection is heightened and your intuition is ignited.

Words

There are those who believe words are empty and have no power. I believe words, like everything in this world are made of energy and energy has tremendous power. It is the meaning behind the words that carries the energy and therefore the power.

The words we speak and the thoughts we think play a special part in awakening to our natural intuition.

Words are a vehicle that can be used to touch a soul and hug a heart.

So allow me to lead you through this path of words.

May the route help you recognize the divine light that you are.

Sometimes you have to dance in the dark to find the light.

I hope you are feeling the light that is you.

Your feelings matter.

Experience your emotions without being controlled by them. Your emotions are the story you tell yourself about what your feelings mean. So breathe into the moment, hug your story by putting a positive spin on it, and keep moving. In fact, keep creating, singing and/or writing and most of all, keep feeling.

Remember, words are a vehicle that can be used to touch your soul and hug your heart.

So…Change the story you tell yourself about yourself. Create a happy ending by creating a happy now.

There are numerous kinds of success. Here’s one…If you are happy, you are a success. Know that happiness in the moment counts. The moment is all we have. Everything else is a memory or a desire.

As you continue to read through this path of words, may the energy of grace, joy, and pure self-acceptance move in and through you and surround you in its warm glow.

Know that one of the most beautiful and profound things you can do to achieve peace in life is to love yourself by being yourself.

If you are confused by people’s actions, know that love is at the core of everything.

Today and every single day think and say…

You are here because the Universe wants you here! You have been invited to dance in the light, so dance!

Live what you love and what you love will fill your life!

Feel alive to love, happiness and your intuitive insights!

Did you know that…

Intuition is a free and natural resource.

When applying insights, set your course on that which is for the good of all and remember to consult your heart, gut and head. When all three are in alignment, go for it!

Shine your light and heal the world.

Expand your intuition!

Wiggle Your Wings and Fly Out of Your Head and Back into Your Heart!

Astrological times of change influences us all and can bring remarkable things to pass. Even those of us who are not Astrologers can and do benefit from reading the energy emanating from the Cosmos!

There’s a lot going on in the Cosmos and on our beautiful planet. Do you find it difficult at times to stay focused? When this happens to me, I look to the Universe and the Cosmos for illumination.

Be in tune with the rhythm of your soul. You are a grateful willing spirit with a balanced mind and an open heart. When you walk, you never really walk alone because the Universe has your back.

We are in Eclipse season, so the energy floating around the Cosmos is magnified.

May 26: Total Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius

June 10: Solar Eclipse in Gemini

Eclipses are frequently linked to changing circumstances. They are like little nudges from the Universe encouraging us to clear emotional clutter and shift in direction for more light.

Another Astrological occurrence that impacts us is when Mercury goes retrograde.

Mercury goes retrogrades 3-4 times a year. It went retrograde on May 29th 2021 and goes direct on June 22nd.

You probably know the drill…Mercury is the planet of communication so there may be some delays. Think travel and technology. Hello computers, phones, emails, deliveries, contracts, and good old one-on-one communication with friends, co-workers and family.

Not to worry though…remember we are all in this together. Just read emails and contracts a few extra times before signing and sending and allow a little extra time for travel.

When you stop to take a breath, you will notice you have wings.

This is the second Mercury Retrograde of the year and this one is in Gemini.

When a retrograde happens to any planet it looks like the planet stops and moves backward, but it is an optical illusion…there is movement forward.

Planets emanate a lot of energy. There is the light positive side and also the shadow darker side of a planet’s energy. Since this Mercury Retrograde is in Gemini I thought I would explore Gemini traits because I know we will be dealing with them for the next few weeks.

Positive traits of Gemini: carefree, joyful, adaptable, happy, loving, outgoing, smart and dazzeling.

The optimistic energy makes us want to love freely and speak kindly to and about others. The positive side of Gemini is wise and generous and enjoys laughter and spending time with people.

Negative traits of Gemini are: unreliable, impulsive, nervous, tense, restless and overly self-conscious.

The shadow side of Gemini cares overly much about how it is seen in the world. Ego is up in arms and haunted by fear of loss of identity.  

Best course of action…

Take time to reflect and re-assess…this is an opportunity to choose a different path or feel even more certain about the path we are on. Retrogrades offer a second chance because there is so much reflection, reassessment, and recharging happening! We may decide, after much consideration, to begin making different choices in what has been an area of stress for us, and therefore, we experience new enriching outcomes.

How we process our thoughts and express ourselves is key right now. If you experience an internal conflict between your emotions and your intellect the cosmos may be kicking up some old unresolved ‘stuff’. Disempower the negative narrator within and give voice to the positive by paying attention to everything and anything promising and joyful in your life and focus on that.

The people who are the happiest are not those who have sailed through life seemingly tragedy-free. The happiest people are the ones who shine a spotlight on the good stuff without ignoring the bad.

Keep your thoughts light and your spirits high.

This is an excellent time to:

-Rethink

-Reflect

-Rewrite

-Revise

-Reevaluate

-Refocus

-Regenerate

-Reveal

Remember, when we are off balance, we fear what our mind is reflecting back to us. When we are in rhythm with our spirit, we fear nothing.

Throughout the next weeks remind yourself to Reflect before Reacting.

Pausing and reflecting is not the same thing as overthinking. Overthinking can cause overwhelm which keeps you from feeling overjoyed.

Stay balanced, centered and connected to your intuition so you can make decisions on the fly…ones that you will look back on and feel good about later.

I am now willing to see something positive, beautiful, humorous, silly, or encouraging in every situation I am in. I choose to observe instead of obsess and trade scared for serene whenever possible. Hopeful has now replaced fearful in my world.

Walk through life with a sense of appreciation and confidence. Feel empowered by your own sense of joy!

There’s a Full Moon Brewing!

There’s a lot going on in the Cosmos.

April 26th brings a powerful Scorpio Full Moon. Not only that, it’s a Supermoon. A Pink Supermoon actually. It is nicknamed the “pink” moon because of its spring timing, which is of course the season of pink flowers in bloom. Despite the fun photo, it isn’t actually pink in color. It is however powerful.

A Supermoon is a moon that looks larger than other full moons because it is closer to the earth.

Supermoons impact the tides due to an increased gravitational pull on earth. Humans are made of at least 50% water so the tides within us are moved by the moon!

What does this mean? There’s a lot of energy in motion.

It’s a time of inner-contemplation and rebirth.

As a sign of intensity, Scorpio energy can bring out our baddest bad and our sweetest sweet! This delivers a lot of passion and perhaps, exposure of some problems. The bright side is, this can liberate our thinking which empowers us to create solutions.

How can we get the most bang for our buck during this Scorpio Full Moon?

*Know that you are meant to move with the positive flow of life.

*Make a conscious choice to show up and be present to what’s in front of you.

*Set your intention to act from a place of love and compassion.

*Make it your goal to find and remain calm.

*Decide to dive deep and do some especially loving self-care.

*Know that Scorpio governs the unseen so keep your heart open and your boundaries secure. Be willing to surrender to love and intuition and withstand ego’s pressure. Turn away from impulsivity. Say yes to intuition…that calm, knowing voice from within and no to solutions that energetically feel heavy.

Here are some things you can do to develop a healthy mindset.

*Do things that lift your spirit.

*Listen to yourself breath.

*AIM for happiness!

*Think thoughts such as, I honor the goodness that comes my way. I am thankful, I am grateful, and it shows. Here’s more!

Do a little grounding at home.

*Home Spring Cleaning for the Soul can help your body, mind and spirit.

*Recognize that your space is sacred.

*Change the way you interact with your home.

*Remember that everything is energy, including your thoughts and words so keep them light. Here’s more!

Trust your gut, follow your heart and use your head. Your destiny awaits.
