Marcus Turm

Marcus Turm is the name of one of the towers in Rothenburg, my favorite city close to my home. It is touristy, but you can’t beat the medieval flair and feel of this place. It never gets old, and neither does it for the Storks who frequently build their nest on top of the towers overseeing the travelers from near and far.


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. Beautiful photo, Rhapsody, it reminds me a teeny bit of Salisbury, but Rothenburg is way prettier. I love the giant stork’s nest and the platform they built for it on top of the tower, standing proud like a cool hat. Storks bring luck, do they not? Wishing you a most beautiful and blessed day, my soul sister, xxx

    1. I love the Storms nests too and it’s a giant wrought iron wheel which they built their nest on. I have seen a few since I got here and will share soon 😉 Storks aid in new beginnings as there is a spiritual and/or physical birthing taking place. Xoxo

    1. What a deeper sense of time and history than here in the USA, where we are impressed if a building is 100+ years old… Thank you for sharing this beautiful image of stork-friendly Rothenburg!

  2. Beautiful Rotherberg!! Reminds me little of Bruges (Belgium). I have never been to Germany, but one day, one day… 😊💖💖💖 Your roots are deep there Rhapsody. Much as Brits and Germans have fought over the centuries, we have much in common. I feel that history has it us on opposite sides of the table to keep everyone else in the game. I think the world’s games are over. We sisters have to find each other and keep the world safe!💕💕💕

    1. I think so too Colette. We already have found each other to write a new chapter for history.
      I don’t like any kind of war or fight and if it was for me, everybody lived in peace and harmony. I know not everyone feels this way, making it nearly impossible, but one can always dream. I might be born in Germany but I see you as my sister, regardless of an ambassador for our country where we both come from. Xoxo ❤️

      1. My feeling, is that the EU will feel some strains after Brexit. I hope Germany and Britain can remain friends. We are more alike in our dreams than any other national pairing… The first and second world wars should never have happened…just the posturings of powerful monarchies that couldn’t back down from a one-up-manship because of pride. Germany lost so much territory of former Prussia that still leaves them with a hidden bitterness. England lost huge numbers of men in the first world war and went into economic decline after the second world war due to foreign debt to America. These are not the spoils of war, they are reminders that war brings pain and hardship. It is so much better to be good friends. To be trusting and peaceful. Thank you my sister. 💖💖💖🙏

      2. You could be right here and I too hope that friendship will prevail in the end and banish any harsh feelings or foolish pride. We need more people like us, dreamers, lovers, believers of all good in this world. United, once and for all. Xoxoxo
