Reflecting on another week

As another week is coming to an end and a new one is heading our way, I am reflecting on everything that has happened so far in 2020. It’s been quite some year, hasn’t it? Life seems to have changed overnight in such traumatic ways that just recently would have been hard to grasp and imagine. Earlier today I heard that this is the biggest mass awakening for humanity. No doubt, things are scary, how else would we learn and notice? But there is no denying and turning away from the good this has brought to our environment. I truly hope the ones in charge, the ones who can make a change are listening.

I’ve been out walking must every day, and I always try to see the world as if it was for the very first time. Gratefulness for yet another day, to have woken up, able to choose my attitude, and in search for what beauty I might find today, has become a priority to me. Beauty lies in the eye of the beholder and is so much more than just visual. Besides what you see, it can be a feeling, an act of kindness, gratitude, helpfulness, the act creation, a smile, and so much more. Today my inspiration was found in nature on my walk and the above picture.

How do you stay inspired?


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 had a parrot land around my home over the last week and I could hear it was a little distressed. I kept an eye out and finally yesterday it landed on my balcony and seemed to be calling me. I could see it was one of those nectar feeders so I very slowly went out with a bit of honey to see if it would respond. I got the shock of my life when it ran along the balcony to me and started to eat the honey before I had barely put it down, it was starving. It was then I realised it was obviously someones pet that had escaped in the storms and wet weather we just had and that some poor child or adult for that matter had lost something that was probably making their isolation a lot easier to handle and now had left them quite distressed.
    I have decided to ring the local radio station and see if this beautiful bird can be reunited with its owner.
    I think I have allowed the universe to give me a very lovely distraction at this time.
    “Let the situation go and it will come!”

  2. I absolutely love this picture and your outlook on life, keeping the spirits up during these difficult times. 2020 has indeed been a year, hasn’t it? I’m glad to hear you are doing well. We try to get out for walks every day and see beauty in the little things like spring flowers and bird songs.

  3. wonderful nature shown in your photograph Rhapsody. I am so blessed to be living in the place I do, the Goddess shows me everyday how incredible OUR world is. Being out there listening, and providing habitat, is my joy to see how the wild life lives about my home and gardens. No matter what I am so very thankful to wake up each morning.
