Preparation for the Easter bunny

I always loved to spend Easter at home in Germany. If I’m honest and with nothing to hide, I have to admit that it is all the holidays that I have missed abroad and working in retail. Easter is a special time in Germany, and decorations spruce up every town. Many towns have wells that are adorned with painted Easter eggs and other Easter bunny decorations. Little Easter eggs are also seen hanging from branches of bushes near peoples personal properties and most every window has some sort of bunny statue, chocolate eggs and whimsical display. It’s as if it is an entire towns effort to celebrate and it always takes me back to the traditions that I grew up with. It’s homey, cozy and familiar, it puts a swing in your step as you smile from window to window in anticipation of the holiday to arrive.


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. Those bunnies are amazing! Are you going to take a little bunny to your Mom for Easter? I know you will probably spend it at her bedside. I’m so happy she is feeling better. It sounded pretty dire there for a while. It’s wonderful that you are spending such quality time together. ❤️💕❤️💕❤️

    1. I made Mom a little Easter bunny basket with some goodies and bunny figurines. I’m sure I’ll photograph it and make a post lol. She is indeed a lot better and there were days I didn’t know if she would be here the next. She knew as well and maybe it was a sign for her that if she ever wanted to get to know me and spend quality time, that now was the time. Hugs

  2. So sweet! I love Easter decorations. I have to admit, I really am enjoying your reminiscing and adventures shared of growing up in Germany. I’m so very happy that your mother is improving a little each day and the two of you have found a mother/daughter love at last. It has been a sad, heartbreaking and wonderfully happy experience for us all. I feel as if I am there with you enduring everything your have gone through (both good/bad). Have a wonderful day. Sending you hugs, kisses and love sweet friend.

    1. This is such a wonderful and sweet comment, her again Robin and you touch my heart in ways you can’t imagine. I always thought that I surely can’t be the only one who has ever had to deal with a tough Mother/Daughter relationship and the struggles I have faced. It is the very reason as to why I write and in the hopes to give others wings when we feel crushed to the ground. I truly hope to accomplish this somehow and to inspire that anything is possible if we believe. Thank you so much for your kind words and for following this journey so faithfully. You are wonderful my dear friend. Xoxoxo
