Love will always be a part of these relationships. Love is not the problem. It is in our lack of awareness that these relationships need to be cleared for our soul to grow. We, however, live in a very disconnected society that supports the splitting of the mind and the body. We can't leave such relationships until we decide we've had enough and choose to step on to the path of relational spirituality. The energetic cord between people in such relationships is often powerful and why healing has multiple levels. Yet, once the process starts with the intention to transform…

Good Morning Wonderful People,

2020 has been a whirlwind. Many of us have suffered what seems like insurmountable losses. Whether it is the loss of a loved one, a job, financial security or psychological well being, all of us have been affected.

In times of great change, it can feel like we are being forced to transform before we are ready. I am a Taurus with many fixed planets in my chart. Stubborn should be my middle name! …

As I was doing my morning card reading, I was set back a little by receiving the “Karmic Trench” card. I woke up feeling great and ready to take on the day and yet this is the card that the Universe wanted me to focus on today. I was confused but when I asked for clarification — it stared at me in my face.

I have been in an advanced yoga teacher training this week with ISHTA Yoga and mercury retrograde has my attention on finishing old writing projects (or waiting on editors to return my work)! So when I pulled a card asking for guidance for all of us today — I wasn’t surprised that this card showed up. Wait. Such a simple word and yet it is so hard to put this into action.

Hello everyone!

We are a week away from Valentine’s Day. When I was a child, I used to love this holiday. I wrote Valentine’s Day cards to all the kids and was especially focused on making sure I shared Valentine’s with all the boys. I really did love love when I was younger and enjoyed the heart shaped candy and the break from the monotony of learning multiplication tables.

As adults we forget the beauty and simplicity of sharing notes of kindness. We allow our personal feelings of the holiday…

For the most part, the majority of us do not understand the holistic healing process. If we get involved in a spiritual community (not religion) we may begin to hear things about chakras, energetic bodies and the term “healing” which has now become popular.

But what is healing exactly and why are we so much more emotionally unhinged now that we were before?

According to intuitive Jill Willard, there are four main bodies of energy that need to be healed on our spiritual journeys. They are…

If we do not intervene in our culture now, our mental wellness is going to suffer in ways we are not prepared to handle

Our medical model of modern psychology looks at symptoms as things to be fixed and cured. And certainly, with the severity of something like an eating disorder or suicidality, we need a medical perspective. Over the last ten years, I have travelled the world and also lived in 4 US cities, Buenos Aires, Beijing, China and Vancouver, Canada. …

I love helping other professionals. I love connecting with others. I, however, have found my tribe more through Instagram than LinkedIn. Why? I am not a fan of the way people typically initiate a connection. I’ve been guilty of it and have had wonderful colleagues, early in my career, help me see there is a more relational way to connect. It didn’t always work well during that time — the time was different but it felt like the right thing to do.

Over the past two weeks, the…

I’ve personally experienced a twin flame activation and have worked as a licensed, doctoral level psychologist and relationship expert for well over a decade. If you had told me about the concept of a twin flame while I was in graduate school, I would have said you were out of your mind. It wouldn’t be until a decade after a devastating breakup that I would realize not only had I met my twin flame but I experienced the wrath of a false twin or karmic…

The past month has been a roller coaster for many people. At different times we felt intense fear followed by complete relief. We have collectively been in a toxic relationship for some time now. We all need a government sponsored 3 month detox vacation!

This week we may be riding a sense of peace due to our change in leadership. Others of us are already preparing for worst case scenarios. Wherever you are with your understanding of what is transpiring in our world, it is now…
