A series of non-coincidental events

It was a series of new found likes and non-coincidental events that formed the birth of Rhapsody Bohème. I discovered the name itself through two independent words that found their way into my mind. How it came to be and why, remains a mystery to me but perhaps some things are just meant to happen and are not to be questioned. 

Rhapsody – An effusively enthusiastic or ecstatic expression of feelings was the definition from the dictionary. I found it to be fitting and it was hitting the nail right on the head since a variety of emotions and feelings were ruling my days as of lately.
Bohemian – Gypsy, wanderer. A person, musician, artist or writer who lives a free spirited life and believes in truth, freedom and love. A definition I immediately found myself drawn to for various reasons even I didn’t understand them in all their glorious detail yet. From de-cluttering my life to a less is more lifestyle, to the quotes, the fashion and the careless, often responsibility lightened existence of life. I was hunger driven to implement the steps necessary for my future Bohemian life and making it a reality to become a free spirit. I think I might have always been carefree, but I needed a catalyst, something to jolt me awake and enable me to witness what was happening. 
I had reached a point where Life had become quite questionable. I didn’t realized it at the time, but it was a life changing transformation that I was seeking. Trying to figure out what exactly it was that had to change, would prove to be a challenge, but I was full of hope and inspiration to find out. I believed and with my high hopes my experiences started to change. For the first time I observed the “signs”, the gentle nudges that guided my path and the life shattering events that forced me to my knees. 
I’m not sure how it all began and at which part of this transformation I currently reside, but I’m on my way and I feel content as the ending is still being written. Living in the now, one thing is for certain and that is that I am in the midst of the biggest journey of my life. A journey of coming home, finding my purpose and finding


We are the co-creators of our life and the time is now. More than ever are we needed to support Mother Earth and each other. Together we discover and explore our unique gifts in times of strengths, in times we lean on each other, and in times when we learn from each other. This blog started as an outlet and what I ultimately called my “Warriors Journey.” It was a way to document the ups and downs of my life, sharing my hardships as well as my successes. It showcased the struggles, but more important the ways of how to overcome them. Although we are warriors each and every day, I realized that having to be a warrior, comes from a place of pain. I decided to rename this blog, and “Phoenix Rising” now stands for the story of overcoming such a painful place. My motivation for this blog hasn’t changed and I hope to share inspiration and hope, to create a sense of belonging, a space of being heard, and connecting with like minded beings who instill a sense of oneness. We are never alone, and we are unstoppable in the pursuit of what sets our soul on fire. Who I am in a nutshell... 
I am an energy healer and Reiki Master. I am surviving a chronic disease that I’ve sent into remission three times since my initial bout, 15 years ago. I continuously challenge the status quo and by doing so I change my stars. I am a believer that anything is possible. I am a hopeless romantic and I believe that true love exists on various levels. I am an optimist that will always see the glass as half full. I am a dreamer, believing in endless possibilities. Not even the sky is the limit. I have jumped off of the hamster wheel, and I am writing a new chapter. I am chasing my Nirvana to support my most authentic self. This is my story, I am that Phoenix and I am rising from the ashes. Namaste 🙏🏼💙🦋

  1. Absolutely beautifully written and thanks for the explanation of both words. How they so perfectly fit me and my life also. I am excited to follow your journey and hopefully soon come on that journey with you.❤️You


    1. Thank you Gisi, your input means a lot and I know you can relate. It gives me purpose and propels me forward to know that there are others.
      Your journey has already begun, it’s just a matter of connecting the pieces. You are on your way and our paths will cross ❤️


      1. Keeping my eyes open and after a sick feeling Sunday I hope Monday will be much better to me.
        I nominated you but understand if this is not your thing and you are under no obligation. Just curious what quotes ring true for you. Have a great week also 😉

      2. Thanks for the nomination. (How do I check it?) Cancerians may feel some of the poop (literally) that Capricorns are feeling as Pluto (the bowels, among other things) stations direct. Even so, keep your eyes open (for an opportunity)!

      3. Yes literally, but I’m an optimist and try to focus on the positive. Thank you for the heads up 😉.
        You are welcome for the nomination and it’s under an earlier post from today / 3 day quote challenge that I wrote.

      4. I will check on it! I am sure you know of the usual remedies: Immodium, Kao-pectate, etc. The pectin in Kao-pectate comes from apples….

  2. The journey you describe sounds very familiar. I hope I have moved past my own ‘life shattering events that forced me to my knees’ and am now well on my way to finding my own purpose. I have started following the little nudges, too. Quite an interesting experience!
