All we need has always been inside of us

Another powerful piece that makes me pause and ponder to what feels so familiar and true. I am not sure who created the artwork and the words behind this, and I’m sorry I can’t accredit the artist, but I hope it speaks to you, and you take a moment to pause.

Have you ever considered that everything you need has always been inside of you? Whether it comes to adjusting to a new earth and a new way of life, our new reality and how quickly life can change, or your own personal struggles and challenges, it is said that your soul already knows what to do. So why do we feel so lost at times, so unsure, uncertain, worried and restless if we have everything we need inside of us you might wonder! My theory is that we simply don’t know we have all we need, that perhaps we don’t believe enough in ourselves, and can’t see how much control we truly have already. We wait to be rescued, for something to happen on the outside, for someone to take action, miraculously changing our reality, while it has always been up to us. Remember that the key to our own luck should always be in our own pocket and not in the pocket of someone else. My other theory is timing and that we simply aren’t ready. If we’re not ready to see and understand, the wisdom inside of us lies dormant until we can appreciate and act upon its value. After all “The teacher will appear when the student is ready.” And here are the words besides my own to back up my own thoughts and theories.

Creator said: “I want to hide something from the humans until they are ready for it. It is the realization that they create their own reality.” The eagle said, “Give it to me. I will take it to the moon.” The Crestor said, “No, one day they will go there and find it.” The salmon said, “I will bury it on the bottom of the ocean.” The creator said, “No. They will go there too.” The buffalo said, “I will bury it on the Great Plains.” The creator said, “They will cut into the skin of the earth and find it even there.” Grandmother who lives in the breast of Mother Earth, and who has no physical eyes but sees with spiritual eyes, said “Put it inside of them.” And the creator said, “It is done.”


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 🙏🏼💙🦋
