The awakened woman/man

“Every day is the first day of the rest of your life.”

Have you heard this saying before? Indeed it is so and every day we awake, we are given an opportunity to write another page in a book of blanks. What will you end up writing today?

Personally I am building on all the lessons 2020 brought my way. I am using the awareness to connect deeper to what it is that fuels my soul. What is it that truly makes me happy and allows my heart to be at peace? What is needed, what is the next step in attaining that sought, blissful feeling.

It appears that more and more, during my pursuit, the old self is dying off. The cocoon is just about to burst open at times, while on other times patiently awaiting that perfect moment. There is a tiredness of the mediocre, a now or never attitude that fuels me. Still I remember how I got here, celebrating all the versions of myself I have lived through. These versions, old self’s weren’t all that bad either and I have no regrets. Each got me to this point in life, for she has been through hell and wears her battles in the scars not hidden but visible and in plain sight. She doesn’t have to be perfect anymore and a new warrior is standing on the edge of forever. A new dreamer is emerging until that cycle concludes and new growths is awaiting a courageous heart once more.

“As an awakened woman or man, your system becomes more sensitive and responsive to the interconnected web of nature. Everything from world events to a full moon can affect how you feel. The more conscious you are, the more aware you become of these influences.”


It is that sensitivity that is my guide that makes me feel alive and allows me to see the world anew through the eyes of wonder with every new day. No, it’s not always perfect. Sure the occasional hiccup will make itself known and there will be challenges and the unexpected. Life is hard but what’s important is how we process those feelings, that knowledge, and what we do with it.

Here is to all of us, in it together, writing happy moments and endings for ourselves on most days.


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. I feel this and every word of yours speaks so very clearly to me. The sensitivity indeed is a treasure and a compass that guides our way of living fully alive and awake to the ripples and waves of life. There is peace in floating on the moment and living deeply in it, and gratitude for all those gone by.

  2. No regrets here either, in fact while all about me seemed to be going crazy in 2020, I had a clear perspective of inner calm…. Which was enhanced even more on the Solstice… When I took part in a mass meditation focusing on Uluru in Australia. I knew then we had completed the shift, the energies were in place.
    But we have to do the work ourselves.. And we will all get hicups, it means we still have something to learn and grow from.. We have never done learning or evolving..
    I am content… And happy to meet another fellow happy Dreamer who knows her heart..

    Love and Blessings your way 😀 Enjoy your week and weekend to come.. 🙏💚

    1. I hear you and relate to your words. I felt the same and as crazy as things got, there was an inner peace, a knowing that the universe would have my back and that everything be ok.
      What an amazing experience it must have been to participate in a mass meditation during Uluru.
      Have a great rest of the week my dear friend. I feel I have found a soul connection in you, a feeling that is instant and speaks so true. Thank you kindly. It means the world. 🙏🏼💙
