A touch of medieval

Part of my soul will always be at home within those romantic, medieval, cobblestone settings.


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. THANK YOU for sharing these glimpses of Germany. I love the feeling that a building like this evokes in me. I wonder if it has anything to do with a sense of continuity and stability that a building which has existed for many centuries emanates? A sense that this building has stood for hundreds of years, and hopefully will stand for hundreds of years more — well maintained by respectful, hopeful, trusting, and far-seeing human beings? Deep breath in. Deep breath out.

    1. You perhaps have an old soul that once has been at home within these walls. These pictures perhaps evoke emotions of security and safety within you as well as a sense of contentment. I am glad you can take comfort in these pictures. Hugs


  2. What a truly stunning area you are in. Ancient and unspoilt by modernity. It is so lovely to get to see and share such beauty and to know it is there, out in the world, unsullied and, I expect, protected. Your gorgeous photos capture, not only medieval buildings of incomparable character but a place of many trees and greenery in the wider countryside, that we have seen from your bike rides. Thank you for sharing, my soul sister. x

  3. Absolutely gorgeous. With nature, the water and foliage, the glorious chalky colour against the sky, for me too it feels as if, when you walk through the arch, you will come to a place that is cozy and safe

    1. Sorry for the late response Timothy, life has been busy, but your comment was much appreciated. For me and my connection to it I feel that perhaps we shared a previous life in those settings. We find something familiar, something that once meant a lot go us, something we miss in today’s society. Whatever it is, thank you for sharing your thoughts with me.
