I have been asking myself lately: What does freedom look like in my life? How would I know if I were free? And, Why is freedom so important to me? In the past, I associated freedom with the physical, through my body. Running has always felt like freedom to me, however there have been few times in my life that my body actually felt the ease of running. What does physical freedom really feel like then? But what about emotional freedom or spiritual freedom? Have I ever experienced these freedoms?Continue reading “Freedom: Now You Can Have the Keys!”
This is a tough subject and the only way through it, I feel, is to be frank. Please only take what resonates with you and discard the rest. No one really wants to be told they are the source of their own misery and suffering. If you are blaming others and circumstances for your predicaments and unhappiness – you are missing a golden opportunity for some amazing changes and growth to take place in your life. Misery and suffering come from within but it’s not who you are and it’s not usually what you think it is – typically.

Some people say it’s selfish or vain to love yourself. You may have even heard it’s bad to love yourself. This is a myth and a lie! Many people don’t even know what it means or what loving yourself entails. Imagine the looks you might get from people you know if you were to suddenly announce out loud: “I love myself!!” while proudly sporting a big smile. A likely response from your friends might be: “Oh . . . that’s nice.” at the same time thinking: “Who does she think she is?” Continue reading “Am I Selfish if I Love Myself?

I remember years ago reading a wonderful story from OSHO about Blessings in Disguise. It really struck me as truth and a great example of the ultimate in allowing and not being attached to outcomes. The opposites of good and bad meld together when we are being neutral and open to all possibilities.Continue reading “Blessings in Disguise”

A fellow blogger and amazing photographer I follow on WordPress, Amy Rose, recently lost a dear friend and in the same week, was told her mother has only months to live. The photos she posted on her most recent blog (the featured image above is one) capture the power of her emotions as she was experiencing them. These photos are stunning. They capture her broken heart and feelings of loss, sadness and grief. I can also see in them her heart full of love and joy, as if while in her grief, she was remembering the times she spent with her friend. These photos embody life. From a death . . . life was born through creation.Continue reading “Transforming Death into Life through Creation”
There is a wealth of information regarding healing the inner child. For the purposes of my blog, I’d like to share from my own personal experience. I got in touch with my inner child in June 2011. My sister Sue mentioned the name Sophie for her and it stuck. I feel that it’s good to name your inner child, others may disagree. I can have a conversation with Sophie, giving her an identity and a voice, making it easier to relate to her. Continue reading “Healing the Inner Child”
The first counsel written over the gateway to the temple of Delphi, “Know Thyself” is an important element of good discernment. In my experience, there is a direct correlation between the quality of discernment and how well I know myself. Having good discernment can help me see things with a clear eye and receive answers to questions like:Continue reading “Discernment a Powerful Tool in Making Your Life for Easier”
Negative beliefs are very destructive to ourselves and others, mostly because we believe they are true and identify with them when we use “I am” in front of things like: a burden, weak, not worthy, a mistake . . . It’s not true. You are not a burden! Your negative thoughts are a burden – more likely. Wars are fought over beliefs, we would die for some of them, believing ourselves to be “right” to the death. Many times we find these beliefs we are suffering over aren’t even ours. They are ones we picked up from our parents, family, friends, teachers and the media.Continue reading “Healing Negative Beliefs”
Florence Scovel Shinn, I feel, is the leading authority on affirmations. I love her book, The Wisdom of Florence Shovel Shinn. This book contains four of her books:
- The Game of Life and How to Play It
- The Power of the Spoken Word
- Your Word is Your Wand
- The Secret of Success
Not so long ago, I realized I was lacking a relationship and connection with God. I may have even been a bit skeptical, or perhaps had unfinished business. I knew about synchronicity, coincidence, The Secret, The Law of Attraction, the Universe, etc., but my interest was mainly from a point of view: That’s just how things work here. It wasn’t personal, I just knew this stuff existed. I had faith, but it was limited to only what I could achieve alone. I was the master of my life and the master of my destiny!Continue reading “Building a Connection with God”
My book, The Path to My Heart, is a story about my fragmented pieces coming back into my life for healing and heart integration. It was obviously time, but I had no idea it was about to happen. They came to life, one by one, with stories of their own healing adventure and a willingness to face their demons. Sophie, my inner child, finally faces her demons at a circus fun house!Continue reading “Healing Fragmented Pieces Through Shamanic Journeying”
Disassociation can happen when we are triggered and traumatized. We can fragment without being aware that a part of us has left, losing a sense of who we are. It’s like being in the world but not of it, you’re here but you’re not, going through the motions but not feeling much of anything. You may have a moment of clarity and realize much of your life has been lived without you.Continue reading “The Outsider – Understanding Feelings of Separation”
The number of TV documentaries, movies and interviews with people questioning their gender identity has skyrocketed in the past decade. Due to medical advancements, there are thousands of people making extraordinary life-altering decisions: whether or not to change their gender through hormone therapy and surgery.Continue reading “An Honest Look at Gender Identity Confusion”
My book, The Path to My Heart, tells a story about my aspects who left me during childhood and returned later in my life. They appeared suddenly in June, 2011 between two powerful eclipses. I had put out a strong intention to heal my past. I awoke one morning to find myself face to face with my inner child aspect, Sophie.Continue reading “Understanding and Healing Fragmentation”
Thank you for visiting!
My blog contains insights I’ve gained along The Path to My Heart which I hope will be of benefit to you. It’s a continuation of the story in my book which lives on in my experiences as a timeline of sorts that moves and grows with me.
It’s also a place for me to share my experiences with healing negative beliefs, ending vicious cycles, facing fear and allowing negative emotions to surface without judgment on my path to achieving wholeness. Please join me if you are interested in finding your own truth and a possibility for lasting healing!
It’s possible for you to live your life:
- from love
- filled with possibility
- free from negative thinking
- with true choice
WARNING: There is no pill to wipe away sorrow or heal repeating vicious patterns in our lives. No magician can rid us of negative beliefs or dark emotions. It’s just not possible to wish these things away. We can intend and have a willingness – these both work in getting us started into making lasting changes, changes for a more fulfilling life.
I will also be referring to and quoting information from my own Resources as they have contributed greatly to my awakening!
Please only take what resonates and disregard the rest.
