My last two days off have been rather uneventful when it comes to spending time in nature. Instead I had a different adventure altogether that I will talk about in a different post. It finally rained and it’s been weeks of intense heat, scorching the land. 2017 seems to be the year of extremes. Extreme snowfall, extreme flooding and extreme heat. The sky was dark and the thunder was rolling, as the floodgates opened and hail fell to the ground. I rushed to the front porch and sat in silence, smelling the cleansed air, feeling the cool droplets splashing against my skin. Childlike abandon came to mind as I thought of grabbing my rain boots. I saw myself jumping into the puddles that were quickly forming, but the hail was a little too big and I decided to just sit and watch. I stayed for a while with my feelings at peace and my soul at ease.
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 🙏🏼💙🦋 View All Posts
