Arriving in Germany

  • The flight was pretty smooth and went better than expected. My layover in Seattle flew by and before I knew it I was on the plane to Frankfurt. For the first time ever, I napped on the plane….here and there. I’m sure the days leading up to the flight, and the news about Moms passing left me naturally exhausted and tired. Perhaps I could have napped standing.
  • “Ok another part of the journey behind me” I thought once I arrived in Frankfurt. Off to the next one, claim my luggage which was one of the last suitcases to enter the carousel. All belongings in tow, I was heading for the rental car counter. Luckily I felt wide awake and any sign of sickness due to exhaustion was not present at all.

    With the car located, I made the trip to my village with little to no problems and arrived in time to change, freshen up a bit, and off we were to the most emotional part…Moms viewing. All in all the day passed filled with adrenaline and my body was strong and supportive, knowing this was something I had to power through. Today my feet are swollen and I didn’t sleep all that much, but I feel rested and ok.

    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. Good to hear, that you are feeling okay today, Rhapsody.
      I don’t know, how everything is done in Germany, when someone cross over the rainbow bridge, but I do remember, how it was in Denmark, when my Dad left 21 years ago. I got the possibility to see him, but my decision, before he went into the chest, which were the only right thing for me to do, as I didn’t stay with him, while he died. Otherwise I wouldn’t have believed, that he was dead.
      Good to hear, that you got this possibility too. It gives us a chance to say goodbye in another way.
      Send you love, abundance and healing, dear friend ❤

      1. I had the possibility to see Mom too but we decided on a closed casket since almost a week passed between here passing and my arrival. But I know what you mean and it was hard to believe that she was actually inside the casket. It is still very surreal and some days are harder than others 😔

    2. Oh, dearest 😔, sending you big big and warm hugs for this emotional journey.
      I find the Lion King‘s song „They live in you“ has such beautiful lyrics and I would like to share them with you. Also find the link to the wonderful song at the end. Feel free to listen to it, close your eyes, and just be. 💝💞💝
      „Night
      And the spirit of life
      Calling
      Mamela
      And a voice
      With the fear of a child
      Asking
      Mamela
      Wait…
      There’s no mountain too great
      Hear these words and have faith
      Have faith…
      They live in you
      They live in me
      Their watching over
      Everything we see
      In every creature
      In every star
      In your reflection
      They live in you
      They live in you
      They live in me
      Their watching over
      Everything we see
      In every creature
      In every star
      In your reflection
      They live in you“

    3. Oh dear friend, I’m so sorry. I know how much it hurts. I wish I could wrap my arms around you in a tight hug. I will be praying for you. It is a comfort that her suffering is over, but I’m sure it doesn’t feel that way right now.

      1. Some days I can remember it and it brings some comfort, but the loss and the pain remains and most of the time it offers little consolation. Some of the hardest days are still ahead of me with the funeral on the 18th.
