This year has embodied the Law of Duality for me and for many of us. And while everything appears as opposites this year (good/bad, right/wrong, high/low, feminine/masculine, liberal/conservative, near/far, light/dark, joyous/painful) they are all, in fact, only two extremes of the same thing. Everything is on a continuum, with a complementary opposite within the whole. So as the pendulum continues to swing into the new year, let's focus on reaching a balanced point, ce
The state of your life is nothing more than a reflection of your state of mind - Wayne Dyer As I reflect on my holiday at the lake last year with my family, it would be easy to go to a dark place because we can't be together in person this year. By staying home and zoom calling with my loved ones this year, I keep them safe and increase my likelihood of spending many more holidays with them in the future. It doesn't mean this isn't hard. It doesn't mean we should deny o
The universe always has a way of helping us realign by creating opportunities to bring us back into our minds and bodies and create balance and flow within and between. Something I've been working on this year is allowing and receiving. When I did this, massive shifts occurred. Yet, every time I started falling back into old patterns of either over-giving or not allowing and receiving, it showed up in my body as pain and injury. The placement of my most recent (and mos
Change the way you look at things and the things you look at will change -Wayne Dyer. We have one month remaining in this wild ass #2020. How have you been perceiving your experience? Have you leaned in or numbed out? Have you been problem analyzing or solution-finding? Have you been looking for opportunities in the challenges? Have you been searching for meaning and purpose amid the chaos and confusion? Have you been focusing on the things you like and want or the things you
"When they let you in, don't forget you're a guest. And if you let them in, remember that is your home." - Suhaib Rumi Healthy Boundaries. It can be challenging to figure out who to let in and when... and who to keep out or at a distance. Just as important, though, is to honor and respect the human "home" of others. Their humanity. Their vulnerability. Practice non-judgment. Simply hold space without offering advice. Express compassion. Honor confidentiality. Respect bound
Transformation is not a switch, it’s a dial – ideally moving to a desired position. But because of the way transformation works, it can go back and forth – moving from lower to higher intensity, getting brighter or darker, or increasing or decreasing output. It doesn’t happen in a moment or even overnight…and most certainly it's not linear. In fact, without this, you couldn’t notice the continuum of dark and light, the expansion and the contraction, and the overall growth.
wellness. wayfinding. I was taking an internet/social media detox while I worked on the next digital course for WW and then took some time to listen and learn more as we moved through another massive moment of civil unrest, trauma, reckoning, and community distress. Today, I'm out wayfinding...in its simplest form. Grateful for these nature adventures. They really bring a sense of regulation and relation - with myself and the world - without having to say a word. What a w
Life is a balance between holding on and letting go – Rumi The goal? “Find the balance between loving without attachments and not letting people harm you.” – Yung Pueblo Relationships are rooted in our past, mirrors of ourselves, teachers of our lessons, projections of our fears and all the unhealed sh*t…manifested in the present. To all my empaths and HSPs out there, I see you, hear you, and feel you. You are not crazy. But you might be allowing and attracting darkness witho
