Water, Fire, Air, Earth & Spirit

Remember that you are WATER. Cry. Cleanse. Flow. Let Go.

Remember that you are FIRE. Burn. Tame. Adapt. Ignite.

Remember that you are AIR. Observe. Breath. Focus. Decide.

Remember that you are EARTH. Ground. Give. Build. Heal.

Remember that you are SPIRIT. Connect. Listen. Know. Be Still.

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. A powerful reminder that we are all made up of the same stuff, that we are all connected as one. Would also make a powerful statement if incorporated into a shamanic ceremony… do I have your permission to use it as such? x

      1. My pleasure. To be honest, I can appreciate the subtle yet striking beauty you’ve achieved in these artworks, but I am unable to produce anything like it. I feel like a gorilla with a keyboard when I see your work. In any case, I hope I am learning from what you can do, because seeing is the first step. 🐒

      2. Haha, why do I struggle to picture you as a gorilla at the keyboard. Your art always looks like such creative endeavors, this is nothing different and you too can achieve this. Just play and you might surprise yourself. I hope you share when you do 😉
