this is it. do what you love now.

I’m feeling my mortality. This week I got the news 1 of my dear friends has months to live, and 2 others were just diagnosed with cancer. Aaaaaaand my mom has been hanging on the outskirts of my mind. Some people say the veil between the living and dead is thin around May Day. Perhaps Mom’sContinue Reading

stop stopping. how to move through fear.

stop stopping. how to move through fear.

Fear is unrecognized excitement. What if that were true? What if fear was actually pointing you towards what you’re supposed to be doing instead of stopping you?   When I was 15, fear pointed me down my path. My mom had died 2 years before. My dad was doing his best to hold things together.Continue Reading

Our energy is like water. Or a battery. Some days you wake up and you’re good. You’re pumped. You’re ready. You’re in the flow. Other days you’re drained. Tired. The thought of doing something is too much. You’re feeling stuck or stagnant.   In my Nia practice I’ve learned you’re either increasing, circulating or expending your energy.Continue Reading

Its not just you. Power of community.

Its not just you. Power of community.

I’m prepping for the encore of the Productive Creativity Workshop today and I was thinking of Monday’s class and some of the things that came up. What really touched me was as the workshop went on and the women shared their visions and their fears, this incredible feeling came over the group. Women could see their own strugglesContinue Reading

Life changing. Full blast.

Life changing. Full blast.

A little over 3 years ago I can pinpoint a moment my life changed forever.   Back in 2012, I had just met Kelly and a friend from Australia Leandra. We would hang out, swim with dolphins, have deep conversation about everything from spirituality to life purpose to energetic healing and transmission. We called ourselves KahikouluContinue Reading

The Bachelor and soul purpose.

The Bachelor and soul purpose.

Finding your soul purpose is a bit like finding your soul mate. We all want one. It can be tricky finding one. I love watching The Bachelor. (Don’t be judging my reality TV guilty pleasure, ya all). If you don’t know the show, 25 women date 1 guy in hopes of finding true love and getting married.Continue Reading

Letting others help. The art of asking.

Letting others help. The art of asking.

After hitting my head on the brick wall year after year I’ve been learning the art of…. Asking for help. This has completely changed my life.

when your best isn’t good enough. stop holding it together.

when your best isn’t good enough. stop holding it together.

Have you ever tried your best at something and it wasn’t good enough? I’ve been training for hula. It’s been intense and wonderful. It has stretched me in the most uncomfortable ways. I’ve come face-to-face with my insecurities. I see where I normally give up and the patterns that have kept me stuck for years. It’s beenContinue Reading

All in.

All in.

Last night a friend called me out. I’ve been working really hard towards a goal and I said, I don’t know if I’m going to make it. She said, You’ll make it if you really want it. That made me stop. I really wanted it, didn’t I? Then I thought about the niggling thoughts in the backContinue Reading
