Created by Storms – Emotions

This picture was stolen from my dear friend Wendi, and today’s segment post brought this amazing person to mind. A beautiful soul, wife, and mother, I relate to her so often not only on a spiritual side and because she has the biggest heart you will ever find, but also because we share the struggle of fighting a chronic illness. This post is for you my dear friend, and everybody out there struggling with disease and pain. God knows you have experienced your storms in life, and dealt with a sea of emotions.

I don’t include myself here, although I belong, and I don’t come from my own pain levels and experiences, but those battling illnesses are some of the strongest people I have ever met. Their struggle is heartbreaking, yet inspiring, and it never seizes to amaze me what storms the human spirit can overcome when being strong is the only option that is left. Today’s segment deals with the emotions behind the storms, the battles that were required for you to be exactly who you are today.

Wendi is such a beautiful example of what it means to not give up, but rather to twist and bend throughout these storms. She is kind and she is a strong woman because she is not afraid of her emotions. Strong women/men are not afraid to show their vulnerable side to let everyone know that after all, they are human. No matter what life throws at them, they are strong enough to pick themselves up, work it out and move on.

Thank you Wendi for sharing your emotions on here, paying it forward for all of us to find inspiration and hope within your words. You have done such a beautiful job and I am humbled that our paths have crossed. 🙏🏼


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. The troopers in life, like those images of a little flower coming up from a crack in a slab of concrete. Forever being overheated, trodden on and just plain rejected for being out of sight, out of mind.
    And all the more beautiful simply because in reality, if we but look a little closer, we will see the love that it has taken to reach that loveliness BECAUSE of what has been endured.
    Take a bow little flowers, your beauty and loveliness precedes you 🌾 💐 🌷 🌹 🥀 🌺 🌸 🌼 🌻 🌈

  2. OH MY GOODNESS! I had no idea you were “talking” about me! This post brought tears flooding my eyes and overwhelmed my heart. I am sincerely humbled and at a complete loss of words. If I have done anything to help anyone, I am deeply happy! God bless you for your super duper kind words! 🙂 I am deeply thankful.
