Cuddle bug

This little Cuddle bug is never too far from my side. This particular picture was taken at night during low light, but despite it’s poor quality it makes up in cuteness, that’s for sure. Here we were, cuddling in t recliner, just spending some quality time being close. She often lays and sleeps on her back, feet sticking straight into the air. She is a good ball with unique traits that often just make you laugh out loud. Just like people, animals too, are unique and special in their own ways. It’s fun discovering and letting these traits unfold, learning a little more at a time and see what this little body and beautiful heart is all about.

She picks up on the vibrations/emotions around her and knows just when to snuggle up and give some extra lovin’. Especially during the last days, I was very grateful to touch and pet her, to soothe my aching heart and mind. At times just laying my hand on her side or back, it feels as if an energy transfer is taking place where either energy flows from me to her or vice versa. It is very comforting and soothing to say the least. It’s a silent pact that everything is going to be ok, that you have each other’s back, and protect the other with your life. Yes it can and is all of that. Have you ever felt a relationship like this with an animal?


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. Yes, I was doing a healing on a friends horse and he ‘opened’ to me. It was one of the most profound moments I have ever touched. He’ ‘gave’ openly, totally trusting who I was. And because of that it left the only mark that it could…a very loving connection. Just like your little ‘connector’ under your arm ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋

  2. I have a special relationship with animals. I always have. It’s hard to describe the kinship of connection. It is not with every animal that I encounter, but with many, many of them. I once had a cat that helped to heal me with her purring vibrations. I felt the energies of her love. Perhaps I will feel inclined to write more about it in a post soon. Thank you for the inspiration and I am smiling from the beautiful photo of you and your doggie. Such a blessing…

    1. I am not surprised at all and I’m sure you are an empath. I once said that Empath’s heal people and animals heal empath’s. I’m sure you relate to this statement.
      I feel the same and at times I feel closer connected to animals then people. I don’t see an animal, I see a soul when I look at them.
      Thank you so much for your beautiful words and compliment. The doggie and me are smiling big.
