you’re not responsible for it all. let go.

you’re not responsible for it all. let go.

It’s easy it is for women to over caretake. I think it’s in our blood. It feels good in the moment. We’re being helpful. Others think we’re awesome. We can make things happen. Get stuff done. BUT our energy spreads out thin. Spread out trying to control everything around us. When I first started holding woman’s circles, IContinue Reading

realignment moments

Have you ever not spoken up and wish you had? Had something happen that made you vow to do things differently? Last week I was with my family on vacation in Kealakekua. It was well needed and we had a great time fishing, snorkeling, and lounging around. With lots of games of Monopoly. One day weContinue Reading

(finally) open to love

(finally) open to love

Do you ever hold yourself back from love? Keep a part of your heart hidden? What if you opened that space? What would happen?   I was always told I looked just like my mother. We both had dark hair, brown eyes and tanned well (as opposed to Dad who is English-Swedish-Norweigen and turns lobsterContinue Reading

this is it. do what you love now.

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

Let it be easy

Let it be easy

Are you trying really hard? To birth your work? Be inspired? Consistent? Are you trying hard to make money? You feel workouts need to be hard in order to work? In order to get ahead you have to push? Deep down you believe it needs to be hard. You need to be the struggling artist or you’re expecting itContinue 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
