Sneak peak – Yosemite

As I return from my moonlight backpacking trip and settle into the duties and routines of daily life once more, I leave you with the last picture from the trip, taken at the doorsteps of Yosemite National Park.

I can’t wait to share this amazing experience with you that always lifts my heart and makes me feel alive just a little more. I am happy to say that the realization of this trip was this “little more.” It’s a little extra, a little push, a little more, but it makes all the difference in the world. Without getting into it too much right now, I am here to urge you and say to you with the highest importance to seek out your “little more.” You will be happy you did and it will give you a purpose that exceeds your highest expectations.


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. It is those ‘little more’s’ that create that step, the one that opens our hearts in its profoundness. Everything that I would class as one of those moments has been such a small thing…but within it worlds are found. Thank you for sharing yours 😀 ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋
