Moving Out of Sexual Shame

Girls and women generally aren’t allowed to enjoy or embrace our sexual power, pleasure, and/or play. Female sexuality is commodified and used to sell everything from toothpaste to cars to vacations, but it isn’t allowed to freely and openly stand on its own. Real life versus media life is such a bizarre dichotomy we all (mostly) put up with or endure. Fairly strong social expectations and strictures keep most of us “in our place.”

Ten Energy Drains & Ten Energy Boosts

Do you notice when something – or someone – drains your energy? Are you aware of how your energy cycles throughout your day? Do you understand sudden fatigue as resistance to something you don’t want to do? Do you know how to protect your energy?

Muscle Testing

My first awareness of muscle testing was as a young teenager when my chiropractor would use applied kinesiology to test for weaknesses along my spine and meridian points.

Healing Stones and Crystals

When I was diagnosed with cancer a little over five years ago, a friend of mine gifted me that Rose Quartz healing stone (above). It joined my circle of healing stones (below) as part of my healing rituals and meditations. I was away from home, so I made a make-shift altar and gave myself timeContinue reading “Healing Stones and Crystals”

The Healing Power of Love

Most of us have some awareness of the healing power of love. Often, when we think about that, we think about directing love outward – toward others. I want to talk a moment about the healing power of directing love inward – toward ourselves. Two of the most profoundly impactful healing practices that have helpedContinue reading “The Healing Power of Love”

Welcome to My Metaphysical Playground!

Ah, the metaphysical! It has fascinated me since my first encounter with a psychic at age 18. I’ve read countless books, hung out with and been friends with psychics and astrologers and healers, taken classes in energy healing, Reiki, healing with crystals, psychic readings, and more. I’ve owned a health food store for 8 years,Continue reading “Welcome to My Metaphysical Playground!”
