Power in the darkness – Magic to prepare for spring…

Today we are celebrating Imbolc, keeping the faith in the anticipation of the coming spring, which marks the emergence from darkness into the light of the sun.

Imbolc falls into the winter season and sometimes we forget or become lost in it. The green mantle will soon return, but for now: it’s ok to sleep more, to say no, to go slowly and strangely, to go into a deep incubative mode, to contemplate the steam motes billowing off your mug, making outlines of spirits we commune with who tell us secrets, to trace lines of fern frost in your window, dive deeply into the dream space, sometimes it requires that we retreat, to recover the light inside us.

We celebrate Imbolc as a earth element. It reminds us of rest and regeneration and the incubation of ideas. Our focus rests on grounding, assessment, resting and recalibration, acceptance, finding out who we really are, rebirth, peace and total self acceptance.

Additional focus is brought to our sacral chakra.


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 🙏🏼💙🦋
