5 Life Lessons I Learned From Hiking


Daily life can bring with it a lot of stress. We get caught up in our obligations to work and our family, so sometimes it’s hard to make time for ourselves to recharge - but that’s exactly what we need to do on a regular basis. Finding an activity that hits your internal “reset” button so you can feel rejuvenated and ready to take on the daily grind once again is necessary not only for coping with stress, but for living a healthy life - whether it’s meditation, yoga, going for a run, or swimming some laps. For me, that activity is hiking.

Discernment: A Superpower Worth Developing In Business And Life - You'll Need It.


I love what Iyanla Vanzant says "When you see crazy coming, run to the other side of the street".  Every time I hear this, I burst out laughing, because it's true, we must walk with a discerning spirit not in a judgmental way, but trust and honour our instincts about people.

How Loss Can Initiate You

Loss as Initiation

I’ve experienced a lot of loss this year. Most of the loss has come as my own choice, which in some ways makes it even harder. I can’t even fall back on feelings of victimhood because I’ve brought all this loss upon myself, not because I’m a masochist, but because I’m being called to align with the integrity of my Inner Pilot Light in radical ways. It’s hard and scary and wildly uncomfortable. And it hurts. My heart feels heavy as big changes have uprooted me. I’ve had to really lean into my spiritual practice to stay grounded, avoid the downward spiral into fear, find peace with uncertainty, and allow loss to grow my soul, rather than shrink it.

How To Call In A Cheetah - Part 2

Calling your cheetah

In Part 1 of this blog, I told the story of my cheetah encounter during the Africa STAR retreat with Martha Beck at Londolozi Game Reserve in South Africa. What I hadn’t realized at the time, because we weren’t being intentional about it, is that those of us in the Land Rover who were blessed to have our sacred moment with the cheetah had been doing exactly what Martha teaches about how to bring into being what you desire.

How To Call In A Cheetah - Part 1


Before I left to go on Safari at Londolozi Game Reserve in South Africa as part of Martha Beck’s African STAR retreat, I kept joking about mystical cheetahs. Every time I’m with Martha, magic happens, so I was curious what mysteries would unfold in Africa. Would the cheetahs levitate? Would I have a run in with a psychic cheetah? Would a cheetah start speaking to me in tongues? It wasn’t just me who was envisioning cheetahs before the safari started.  Anne Davin, who was joining me on safari, also kept seeing visions of cheetahs.

Losing My Safari Virginity


Martha Beck’s African STAR retreat at Londolozi Game Reserve in South Africa begins with silence in the back of the Land Rover. The air is thick with a vibration so palpable it moves warm honey through my legs and up into my chest. Martha is entraining us all from the very beginning, and it works. We drop right in, and the animals can sense it. The giraffe is right there, so close we can hear her breathing. I am keenly aware that every giraffe I have ever experienced pales in comparison to this one. She is free to come and go as she pleases. She takes care of herself and doesn’t depend on feeders to nourish her. She is not here for our pleasure; she is just here, being her wild true nature, as all of us are yearning to be.

Expand Your Light With A Cleaner Diet

clean diet

Before I delve into this topic, let me just say that I'm not a full, "Vegan" by any way stretch, shape or form nor am a certified, Nutritionist.  Might consider becoming a "Vegan" at some point, but not quite there yet.  For now, I enjoy chicken and fish thank you very much.  I also adore coffee (still working on conquering that vice).

How Birth Control May Be Hindering Our Spiritual Health

blood to blood

For quite some time I’ve struggled to reconcile two parts of myself: The part in which I desperately want to awake the feminine (both in the church and in our souls), and the part in which I want, no need, to get as many women off hormonal methods of birth control as I can.
