A storm is brewing

Snow is on the horizon for the next 4 days and a storm is brewing. It matches the inside of me as a storm arrived Friday the 13th. Do I believe in Friday the 13th, not necessarily, but I bet someone else will. It’s a storm caused through none of my wrong doing and yet it at affects me and I have a feeling it will be life changing. I could feel a lot of anger right now, but I’m strangely calm. Maybe I’m in shock, we will see over the next days. Maybe it is that I remember the saying about anger as a wise man was asked what anger is.

He gave a beautiful answer, saying “it is punishment we give ourselves, for somebody else’s mistake.”

And I didn’t make a mistake, so I will trust that the universe is just nudging me to get on with it and change my stars.


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 am wondering if this is the first time you have felt like this since Your mothers dying? I know that for most people after the death of a close and loved, and sometimes (not so close or loved) person. I may be totally of base here. It is often a part of how the person moves through their grief. It is not a always a part of grief but is often enough.
    May the storm bring positives and clarity. Keep warm and safe hugs

    1. I don’t know Tazzie. This incident was not related to my mother’s passing and it was something else. A relationship and tie that needs to be ended and moved on from. It’s something that brings my vibrations down and impacts my life negatively. I don’t think it is related to the grief about losing my mother.
      Stay safe and warm as your winter is approaching. Big hugs


      1. It is good that You have such an understanding of why it occurs, I did not mean to be intrusive. I am learning far more to see why I react, to some situations, so understand. I will be very warm I have all I need and more in the way to keep warm, I am so much more fortunate than many other with my life situation. I feel for you going into Spring and Summer with all that brings and the potential that may mean such changes in our lives. Winter is a time for being home, and snuggling with the dogs in front of the fire. I do hope you are able to work and have your life not too disrupted or impacted by what is happening. Love tazzie

  2. We always get shown something about ourselves…even if just to realise there’s nothing there. And vacuums can only be one thing. The end of one journey and room to build the next.
    Your mom shared with you a discovery of a beautiful place within Rhapsody, you are beginning to blossom from that new flower you have created from that love 😀 ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋

    1. You are absolutely right Mark and I believe the same when it comes to one door closing and another opening. I am glad Mom shared this place with me and perhaps it is helping me now, although this issue is not related to her. 🙏🏼❤️

  3. Long time ago, I thought, that anger didn’t serve anything good to me, Rhapsody.
    I was wrong, either I don’t like it.
    By not accepting the anger, we do have inside ourselves, we suppress our anger, which might give stiffness in our muscles and joints.
    I find it for me better to accept the anger, go through it in my mind, then accept that the world isn’t always fair and by working through the anger in this way help me to release the anger and fear, which also belong together.
    Maybe you can use this too.
    Big hugs and much love for you, dear friend ❤
    NB: You have my email and are welcome to use it.

    1. Oh I have Irene and I share your believes. I treat it the same, and believe in letting all feelings pass through me, including anger. I just don’t hold on to them anymore. I neither suppress them, not do I let them run my life. Thank you for your advice and offer to email you. I know what needs to be done, I just have to do it. I will always get the same results unless I do something about it. It’s just complex and overwhelming at times. Sometimes when another hit happens, it just gets to me.
      Much love to you ❤️
