Sometimes you have to burn everything down and start over, including yourself. Fire clears away the old, the dead, that which no longer serves us, to make way for the new. It burns down forests but cracks open seeds. Purifies. Transmutes. It lights the logs in your fireplace to keep you cozy on a chilly… Continue reading Rise from the Ashes
Soaking in a warm saltwater bath calms my soul. I come to stillness. My body is buoyant. My mind clears. Just 20 minutes in the tub soothes me and helps me get centered and grounded. Salt water acts as a kind of battery—considering that our bodies produce an electromagnetic field (sometimes referred to as an… Continue reading The Healing Power of Salt
In a culture that's always pushing more, that says more, bigger, faster is better—what is enough? It's no wonder that so many of us doubt ourselves, doubt the core of who we are. Everything's for sale. Looks matter. But the surface is a mirage. And we all know it. What's inside? That's what matters. We… Continue reading What Lies Beneath
Sometimes I get frustrated with the whole idea of "purpose." Why am I here? How can I be of service? How can I be in alignment with my purpose? What exactly is my purpose, anyway?

Like many people, I find my mind wandering all over the place during these walks. Projects and bills to pay and a million other things I need to write on my… Continue reading Be Like a Dog
Do you find yourself hanging on to old ways of being and thinking that no longer serve you? Are these old ways cluttering up the closets of your heart and mind? My friend, it's time to Marie Kondo yourself. Maybe you're hanging on to old beliefs about money or your self-worth. Maybe you spend way… Continue reading You Are OK, Really
I eat oatmeal for breakfast. I burn palo santo and diffuse frankincense oil. My salt lamp glows. It's still dark outside. I sit in silence at my desk. The stillness is a deep pool. Calming and refreshing. The traffic on I-65 in the distance roars like ocean waves. In this moment, I am here. I… Continue reading All That Matters
We have moved into 2019 under a waning moon. Out with the old, in with the new. As we head toward a new moon, this is a great time to think about letting go of what no longer serves you.What can you let go?
We're now solidly in the in-between or liminal time of autumn. It's no longer summer and it's not yet winter. We are between worlds. The leaves continue to turn and slowly die and drift away from their branches. Squirrels hide acorns in preparation for winter. Nature begins to ready herself for winter and so do… Continue reading Season of the Witch
