For our hero’s

This is a new 8×10 canvas painting of a dot Mandela. I created it to honor our front liners fighting this pandemic. I wanted to say thank you to the ones working tirelessly in an effort to provide for others. The ones offering help to the less fortunate, as well as all essential workers risking the or own health to keep us going.

This Mandela is dedicated to t he survivors, the families that have been faced with Covid 19, and t he souls that have returned back home and left us way too soon. May we never forget these hero’s, and may we feel a heart full of gratitude for our C-19 hero’s.

Thank you for all you do. 🙏🏼


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. a superb and beautiful mandala for all the hero’s of this time. May we never forget what these incredible people have done for all of us in isolation and lock downs. Maybe more young people will see all these essential workers from all areas of our communities as jobs that are far more important than reality and celebrity and sports people.
