Until I see you again…

Couldn’t you just here and marvel for awhile? I know I did and Yosemite is a place close to my heart. It’s a connection to ancient times, a prior life perhaps, a sense of home that has me sighing deeply each time I am within it’s marvelous surroundings.

Seen is this picture taken at Glacier point is Half Dome, my favorite landmark of the park, but then it’s hard to have only one. In the picture as well is Clouds Rest, Liberty Cap and Nevada Falls.

I will never forget the beauty seen when we took a bus to Glacier Point and hiked the Panorama Trail all the way down to The Valley, past Illilouette Falls to Nevada Falls and Liberty Cap, intersecting with the Mist Trail and Vernal Falls. A almost 9 mile journey with 3200 ft in elevation change.


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 🙏🏼💙🦋

  2. What a joy to see this photograph, my friend. I once hiked up from Valley Floor up to Glacier point. When back down in the afternoon, I found I had left the lights of my car on (back then there was no acoustic signal warning). I ranger bailed me out! I never forget!
