“Before you can move in new directions, you must first let go of what’s not working for you.”

~Alberto Villoldo, PhD

I was surely doing a lot of letting go lately. Letting go of things once dear to me, no longer holding the same value. I was surprised how easy it was, at least for the most part. The house was getting bare inside, taking on a more and more minimalistic lifestyle and I loved it. I got a good preview of what I was working towards, and it felt like a mini trial version. All of a sudden those hard earned artifacts no longer had a place in my life. Throughout the process, it became apparent of how much I had changed, for however long ago I don’t know, but my entire life was receiving a complete make over. For the first time, perhaps in the history of my humble existence, I saw clearly, a vision of where I’ve been, my now and the future. And more importantly of what I truly wanted. From there a passion ignited, working towards peace and bliss, and the stuff of what had been my old life had no room in where I was heading.

I have to thank you for sending me such wonderful energy over the weekend. It was strenuous with the garage sale but it was a success. Monday came and it was mostly a breeze to get the house ready for it’s new picture date in the afternoon. I was able to function with minimal pain. By the end of the day the energy wore off and I was glad to put my feet up. This morning the house is back on the market and could sell this weekend. More change is coming and the decluttering and packing journey continues. The race continues but at least for the moment some stressful deadlines have fallen off and I hope to step a little lighter this week. I have packed my first couple of boxes and labeled them for the future. I can’t help but wonder how long it will be until I can hold that very box again and unpack it.


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 🙏🏼💙🦋
