Shine On

Unbox yourself. Let your hair down. Untame that wild beast within you. Dance and feel into your body. Shake your hips and move your arms and legs and belly. Let it jiggle. Let yourself sweat. What does it mean to be YOU? Cause I’ll bet it’s not sitting slouched over your computer scrolling through your Facebook feed. I’ll bet it’s not hunched in a chair with your phone two inches to your face. I’ll bet […]

What’s New – February 2021

Every time I sit down to write something, I seem to get lost in the words. It’s been hard finding my voice over the past couple years, with so much going on all the time. It seems everyone has something to say, and yet, most of it is just jibberish. I have been turned off by social media, turned off by technology in general which is ironic because I think at the same time I’ve […]

A Return to Nature and A Guiding Message

After all the craziness that’s been going on in the world over the past few months, I can’t help but want to let go of it all and return to my center. I think it’s time for me to reflect and review what it is I want to focus on. Though it can be an ego-trip to satisfy my need to know what is happening in the outside world at all times in order to […]

React, Regroup, Reconnect

I tend to be a reactionary and emotional person. I think it’s probably safe to say we all are; that is our nature as human beings. Sometimes this is a very helpful tactic in times of conflict. We can react very quickly which drives our actions and this can be useful. But I think far too often we react before really taking the time to think rationally, and this can get us into some trouble. […]

On Wearing A Mask and Giving Our Power Away

I came across a post about why it is important to wear masks. Why wouldn’t you want to wear a mask if you know it will save other people? I couldn’t help myself to respond because, well, there is just too much to say in response to this. Unfortunately, my response was triggered and it didn’t come off as I wanted it to in the moment. So I decided to write it as best I […]

The Magic of Winter Solstice

The Winter Solstice has arrived, and with it comes the darkest night of the year. Something magical happens when there is less light to guide us; we usher in our own guidance to lead the way. The solstice marks the transition back to light, but also in a sense is only the beginning of Winter. This time of year is a time of introspection. It is one of intuition and discovering our selves. Like a […]

Surrender

Sometimes in order to receive, we must let go. In order to allow things to unfold naturally, we must stop resisting the tide. To surrender to life’s mysteries means to see all of the events happening in our lives, good and bad, and appreciate what they have to offer. We must first understand that to let go of our perceived control makes space for healing to occur. I’ve learned a lot over the passed few […]

Living the Simple Life

I’m going to be real with you. I haven’t been publishing blog posts or on social media so much, because well it has felt better not to. Some days I’d have the inspiration to write an article, but then be too meticulous about how it reads and scrap it. Other days I’d take a picture of a pretty plate of food with the intention of publishing it somewhere, but then get caught up in the […]

Thai Cauliflower Fried Rice

If you haven’t tried making cauliflower fried rice yet, now is the time. This is one of those recipes that has gotten a lot of light since the coming of Paleo, whole-30, or any other grain-free diets. I just love it because instead of rice being the primary player in the dish, you have a vegetable instead! And if you know me, you know adding more veggies is what I’m all about. Using cauliflower doesn’t […]

Roasted Almond Butter

Almond butter is one of those things that I must always have around. I use it in so many recipes; for cooking breads or date balls, topping on pancakes, or just for snacking on. I love the stuff, and since I’ve had access to ordering almonds in bulk, here, I really have no excuse. This is one of those staple recipes that is so easy to make. The only ingredient you need is almonds; that’s […]
