Happy Friday everyone! I have four more small businesses that I would love to share with all of you. They range from clothing to vitamins to skincare- and all have been absolutely wonderful to work with, and it has been a joy exploring their company, histories, and products. So, let’s get to it!

Embracing Vulnerability and the Raw & Real Project

Vulnerability is such a scary word, isn’t it? Putting yourself out there in such a raw way, allowing whatever may happen, to happen. Allowing yourself to feel your emotions in such a deep way, not only with yourself but whomever you chose to share that vulnerability with. It’s a moment in time where things are actually authentic. That’s such a rare thing in our society these days, where we have social media and all that comes along with it. You can’t be sure what’s real or true these days through the lens and filters of Facebook or Instagram. People love to show their highest and most proud moments, but usually don’t dare to show their moments of being human- full of emotion, insecurity, or authenticity with others.

Gathering in Sisterhood Circles

Gathering in Sisterhood Circles

Friday night I was feeling so many different emotions than I am feeling today, on Monday afternoon. I had to do a weekend intensive at my school, a weekend of 20 hours of Prenatal Yoga. Friday night I was sad about spending the weekend away from my family, essentially I felt as if I was going to waste the whole weekend. I had no idea what was in store for me, and I left the first class Friday night feeling so much more excitement for the few days to come. I left Sunday evening so sad that it had come to an end. What transpired over the weekend was a beautiful gathering of women, a sisterhood, where we shared, laughed, cried and formed a beautiful sacred where we came together.

Smudging Your Life

Smudging Your Life

Smudging. You may picture a crazy, older woman wearing flowing robes dancing among a cloud of smoke all throughout her house, choking on the inhalation of sage and chanting to her
pets. Or, maybe you are that crazy older woman (like I am at heart). Allowing an open mind to the benefits that smudging can have on your space and life can make a world of difference. I began my smudging practice years ago after hearing how it clears out negative energy, creating openness for fresh, new energy to fill in the
void. I was in awe how something so basic and simple allowed for a whole new feeling to myself & my environment. I opened myself to have a monthly ritual of out with the old, in with the new- which manifests beyond the four corners of your house into all corners of your life.

The Sacred Feminine

The Sacred Feminine

I began my journey towards the Sacred Feminine while in childbirth. That’s where it started for me. I remember being in labor with my middle child, and really rooting into that strong, warrior woman within. The only thing keeping me from falling off the edge of pain, was thinking about all the ancestors before me. All the women throughout centuries who has been right there, right then, in that moment. I could feel them wrapping their arms around me, comforting me, while I entered into that sacred role of mother again. I could picture them wiping my brow, kissing my forehead, with that deep feeling of knowing what all women know. We are one. Continue reading “The Sacred Feminine”

Raising Goddesses, not princesses

Raising Goddesses, not princesses

Good afternoon beautiful souls! I want to discuss something today that I found very interesting and should be acknowledged. It deviates slightly from my normal, metaphysical posts- but it’s a beautiful understanding I recently came to. The other day I was having a conversation with a friend of mine, Manny, and we came to an interesting subject while discussing our children. The topic came onto Disney movies, talking about which were our favorites, which were our kids favorites. I threw out how much I loved the princesses (naturally!), how all of our girls loved the princesses.  And it seems we came to a grim conclusion at the same time: how these fairy tale stories really disappoint us when we become adults, and the impact it has on us when we don’t even realize it.

Being Your Authentic Self

Being Your Authentic Self

Good morning! I want to address something possibly controversial, definitely thought-provoking. I’ve had a thought rolling around in my head, constantly, since I began my journey towards spiritual development and self discovery, and it’s been there lingering within for years now. At first, this thought was ever encompassing, and now it’s just a little nag within my head that I choose to ignore. Let me explain. Continue reading “Being Your Authentic Self”
