Happy Earth Day

She is changing our Mother and a new earth is being born. A earth that has always loved us, but have we always loved and respected her back?

As the earth celebrates the 50th anniversary of earth day alone and without huge events, she still speaks to our conscience with a few powerful facts.

  • A reduction in global air pollution
  • A dramatic fall in carbon emissions
  • Clearer water
  • Happier animals

In Eckhart Tolle’s Book titled “A new earth”, we are invited to awaken to our life’s purpose. He talks about making a case that humanity must either evolve into a new ego free enlightened state, or face possible extinction. A new earth outlines a crazy and destructive place, but also shows us that we can save it together, by looking into our minds and detaching ourselves from our ego, so we can practice acceptance and enjoyment. Could this be such a time?

Watch the news or any Covid 19 themed program and you have heard it. “We are in this together” is the slogan, but what does it truly mean to everyone on an individual basis? Are we in the learning stages, trying to figure out how this applies to us? Are we all doing our part, or are we trusting that someone else will, are we evolving or facing extinction? What exactly is our part and what does it entail you might wonder!

Tolle and a new earth encourages us to live our life in each present moment and to create happiness for ourselves without emphasizing material possessions. What would this mean for each of us? Could we let go of the world we have created, the place we have come to know to make room for a better one? Perhaps not everyone could see change as a better world, struggling to leave behind their comforts and ego. After all we have worked so hard in an effort of having things our way, haven’t we? Have we gone too far, has the balance been tipped?

You might have heard that the earth is ascending and received a new blueprint last Monday. Everything is different and yet the same. Have you noticed a change, have you seen how beautiful our planet is? How clean the air is and how far we can see without a smog line on the horizon? If you are missing these moments, it might be due to feeling unhappy about the disruption this has caused in your life. But even that can be in our control if we only allow it to be.

“The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but your thoughts about it.”

~Eckhart Tolle


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. More effort is the start, to take the blinkers off and the ‘not wanting to see’ the garbage, plastics, pollution’ etc. It is time to actually face it or die, there is no other destination.
    Great post Rhapsody, may this ball of thought begin to roll 😀 ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋

    1. I think so too. Healing vs abusing its beauty and leaving behind tons of trash from the celebrations which in reality are just a reason to party with little regard. Sad, really and the entire point is missed when this happens.


  2. It is a ray of hope in the time of the c-virus as you’ve expressed, Rhapsody, like a preview of a new earth. Here in Australia, I’ve heard of wild animals coming into towns that are now quiet. At the same time, we’ve left the terrible burning of summer behind, there’s been a lot of rain, and everything is growing again. Even in my suburban backyard, the rainbow lorikeets have returned in numbers I’ve never seen before. In the morning, their choir is deafening, heralds of that new world.
