What is feminine energy and why it matters

In the Sacred Art of Self-Care I stress the importance of nurturing your feminine energy, but what does that mean? Often, what comes to mind when we hear the word “feminine” are stereotypes like the color pink, flowers, perfume, shopping, make-up, ballerinas, and romantic comedies. While there is absolutely nothing wrong with any of thoseContinue reading “What is feminine energy and why it matters”

A Journey to Self

When change is hard

Many people find change difficult, perhaps most people. But I would venture to say I am not one of those people.

There is this beautiful peeling tree in my backyard. Its bark is coming off in big slabs, and underneath it is a smooth mint green new skin.

When you’re feeling overwhelmed

This week you’re receiving Wellness Wednesday on Thursday! I am a bit of a stickler for deadlines, especially personal ones. Every week I write an article which gets sent out in a newsletter every Wednesday, at the same time.

Guidance through times of transition

The nature of existence is change. Yet sometimes that change comes as a massive wave, like a tsunami of transition, when life gives itself an extreme makeover. I live right by the Pacific Ocean, and though I love being in the water, I used to be afraid to get on very wavy days. They tendContinue reading “Guidance through times of transition”

Choose Pleasure

Everyday presents a series of choices, some more conscious than others. In every moment we are given the opportunity to choose what to do with our time. How often do you choose pleasure?
