365 Days of Love Letters to Myself

*ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED ON GLOBAL LOVE PROJECT* Each year as we move toward its end, through the darkness of the Winter Solstice and peaking up on the return of the light, I think of a ritual I’d like to adopt for the New Year…a way to honor how far I’ve come and also what I’m calling [...]

Boundaries and Energy Management

It's that time of year when we often find ourselves interacting with those who may put us outside of our comfort zone. And it can create some beautiful opportunities for growth and learning, as we see relatives and old friends we may not see very frequently. It can be helpful to remember that we do [...]

What’s Your Word for 2016?

Lately, as I approach the new year, I've been selecting a theme I'd like to invoke for the coming year. At last night's solstice ritual we each selected a word, going round in circle sharing it and lighting a small candle that each woman took home with her to represent the birth of the light [...]

Women’s Circle Closing and Winter Solstice

Held my last women's circle in San Diego tonight before my move. We celebrated the coming solstice as well as the full moon in Cancer on Christmas Day. We honored endings and rebirth, which was so perfect for this new journey I'm preparing to embark on. I kept waiting to feel more sadness in coming [...]

Message from My Spirit Guides: Coins

When I teach my spirit guides workshop, I talk about all the ways our guides can be in communication with us...feathers are very common, as are coins. And over the last year in particular I've been finding quarters nestled in the strangest of places...under throw pillows, my bathroom sink, as I'm walking out and about. [...]

Beautiful Baltimore and Intro to Energetic Self Healing

This was the view from our beautiful 15th floor room in downtown Baltimore for the Intro to Energetic Self Healing Workshop, an introduction to Reiki. I was so super honored and excited to share this workshop this past Saturday. Every workshop is special and unique, and this one had the very beautiful theme of sisters! [...]

Finding Stillness in Winter

Enjoying the seasons feels like such a blessing... walked for several miles in the lightly falling rain with my sis and her boyfriend this afternoon. There's so much quiet here, not what a lot of people (myself included) imagine about Philly I think. Taking some time for quiet reflection is such a natural and important [...]

Embracing Experiences — and Hearts — in Sedona

Throwing back to my recent trip to Sedona. I had so many beautiful, synchronistic experiences there and one was as I was walking back down from the Boynton Canyon vortex. A man who was walking up stopped me and said "can I give you something?" I said, "of course!" and he pulled this red rock [...]

The “Okotoks Erratic” – Megaliths in Calgary

I found megaliths, just outside of Calgary! These beautiful, enormous and ancient stones stand in the middle of the flat plains, and have been sacred to the Blackfoot people. The "Okotoks Erratic" (from the Blackfoot word for rock) were deposited here by a glacier some 30,000 years ago, and the quartzite they're composed of is [...]

Reiki Teaching Reflections – Calgary Reiki 1

I'm enjoying a little green tea matcha by the fire this morning in Calgary, taking a quiet moment to reflect on such a beautiful Reiki 1 class yesterday. Each class is so special and unique, and yet sometimes it still amazes me what happens when a group of present, authentic and caring people come together [...]
