It’s word porn Monday and here is a new one for us.

Metanoia (meh-ya-not-ah) Greek

(n.) the journey of changing one’s mind, heart, self, or way of life; spiritual conversion.

2020, so many of us where ready. Ready to leave 2019 behind and move on to bigger and better years ahead. We all felt different, felt a change, a shift that was happening, although we couldn’t pinpoint exactly what was going on. We waited in anticipation, ready to leave the old behind. With January coming to an end, and New Years resolutions easing off from their initial intensity, who is still feeling Metanoia?


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. I do, and it surprises me almost everyday. I am not the resolution-taking type, not at all. I don’t remember the last time I started a year setting any specific goal for myself. But this year, I decided to welcome any blessing coming my way. I am not asking for anything, just letting Life be good to me, and I make sure to be grateful when it is. Amazingly, I’ve noticed a surprising number of positive and unexpected things happening to me. I hope it will keep on going 😉 *Big hugs* Gorgeous!
