Celebrating “YOU” Feature recognition ~ Tohfa from Nyctophile

Whoohoo, it’s Wednesday again…time for Celebrating “YOU”

Celebrating “YOU” is a weekly segment to celebrate and encourage each other. To show recognition to someone that has inspired us, touched our hearts, or otherwise made a difference in our days. 

It could be anything, from a simple “Thank you” and a few short words, to something as big as a novel. Rules don’t really live here, and it is you conveying what you feel is important we readers know about your selection. There is no formal format other than expressing your gratitude and how this person is making a difference.

Think about this….Has somebody ever made your day with a simple compliment? Have you felt your face light up because they took the time to notice? Do you remember what it feels like to be recognized? How it only took a small effort to say something, but became a huge part for you being celebrated and vice versa. Here is your chance to pay it forward, to make somebody’s day.

If you want to be a part, please sent an email to with your submission. Your submission should include your name and blog name, so I can properly give a shout out and let others know who the celebration is coming from. Unless you want to stay anonymous which of course is always ok and an option. Further we need the same from your nominee, a name, blog name, along with a few lines at a minimum should be perfect. All submission will be posted in the order they are received and without further editing. Please double check and make sure everything you want to include is said. Thank you for each and all interest. 

Each Wednesday the “Feature recognition” will go out to announce the week’s beautiful soul. Stay tuned and watch your posts come alive every Friday. Personally, I look forward to support your choices and give your nominees a follow for extra support. May our circle continue to grow. ♥️


This week’s submission comes from my dear friend Novus over at Novuslectio . It is so much more than just a recognition, and pulls on our heartstrings to remind us to never give up. It’s a celebration of the human spirit, to showcase the strengths and determination it takes to keep hope and faith alive. Please allow me to welcome Tohfa from Nyctophile. Thank you for being an inspiration to so many, and for staying positive in the most adversed of times. We love you and send our best your way.

Stay tuned for the full story in Friday’s post and please show your support. Thank you, see you then….

Pssst: And don’t forget to submit your own submission and make somebody else’s day. Xoxoxo



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 🙏🏼💙🦋
