I will Mantra

An older picture and I’m dreaming of days like these spent in nature once again. But in the meantime I thought I share a little mantra with you, courtesy of Linda Ellis, to start the week in the right mind-frame. So here it goes and I hope you try it and read it each morning as you start your day.

I will (mantra)

I will choose how this day goes no matter what may come my way. I can only live this time one time; the minutes, the hours, the day.

I will smile through adversity, let malice be ignored, and release the spite and pettiness that today, won’t be restored.

I will heed constructive views, though they may appear as flak and force unkind deeds and insults to roll right off my back.

I will complete acts of kindness in my own special style not just for the benefit of others, but because they make me smile.

My heart and soul are now content; life’s blessings overflow and I will be the one to blame if I let these feelings go.


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 🙏🏼💙🦋

    “You’ve got to sing like you don’t need the money,
    You’ve got to love like you’ll never get hurt,
    You’ve got to dance like there’s nobody watching,
    You’ve got to come from the heart if you want it to work.”

    Hallelujah! And thank you for sharing yours ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋 😀 ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋
