Sometime between the birth of my first child & perimenopause, I missed the memo: Stupid Euphemisms for Vagina.Read More...
I’ve been thinking about time a lot lately. Specifically:
Allow me to set the scene:
I’m talking to a client who has recently broken up with an amazing guy who worshiped the ground she floated over.
“Why did you walk away from him?”
“I don’t know, ” she said mystified and withdrawn.
“Could it be because you were afraid of having what you wanted?” I offered.
Lightbulb. Yes, that’s it.
We reach for self sabotage when we fear our own empowerment.
Change can = pain.
So why push forward any.way. you can?
Because it’s worth it.
Know with every fiber of your being that what you want the most: the relationship, the career, the body, the chance – all lie on the other side of your willingness to change.
Analyze your motivations; get curious.
Why are you afraid to have what you want most?
Why are you NOT leaning in?
Curiosity packs the power to move you forward.
Refuse and the long term pain of sabotage has the potential to dismantle you. To rob you of who you seek to be; of where you aspire to ascend to.
Shelve your fear, loosen your shackles and desire a life of satisfaction more than you begrudge change; more than the pain of discovery and the responsibility of awareness.
And then act.

If you support marriage equality, you probably recognize that every human being should enjoy the same rights and privileges. Period. Have you ever thought about that in reference to your own internal community? Are there aspects of your personality that cause you pain, jealousy, guilt, sadness? Would you just rather ignore them, because they make you feel uncomfortable?Read More...
I have a ghost lurking in my closet. Honestly, I’ve got more than one. There’s a few hovering in the shed, a cluster under our guest bed and tubs full of the little buggers in the attic. Cleaning them out will be more than a weekend project; it feels closer to extermination. That’s why I’ve been avoiding it.Read More...
About two years ago a good friend of mine woke up with a very swollen belly, out of nowhere.
Later that night she was told she had stage 4 ovarian cancer.Read More...
Every deep spirit teacher I come across writes in their own enlightened way about suffering and commonplace misery as stemming largely from fighting and resisting the reality of our life. Most all of the analogies boil down to banging our heads repeatedly and wailingly against the brick wall of the present day, while we get angrier by the minute with each resounding bang at the meanness, cruelty, and inflexibility of the wall in front of us.Read More...
