Finally, a new word post, and to be honest I’ve been missing these carefree, sometimes funny words that turn into lighthearted posts. So many words have spoken to me lately, but it’s impossible to mention them all, and sometimes it’s still beyond me that in the midst of everything, I’ve managed posting period. I recognize the importance of this outlet for me. Writing, and emptying the emotional bank from time to time, such as today. It’s a good thing when you can take stock, be your own motivator, realize and acknowledge your struggles and sometimes even laugh at yourself. It seems I am having a day like this today, running myself through a myriad of emotions and feelings.

Today’s word reminds me of Namaste, a word we healers and Yogis often use to respectfully great one another. Translated Namaste means “I bow to you. I see you (even without words.) I honor the place in you which is of love, of truth, of light and of peace.”

Our new word is Hotmeste, (hehehe) and could be translated as “The hot mess in me, recognizes the hot mess in you and it is divinely beautiful.” Like an outsider and bystander, I realize the hot mess I am today. How my feelings are still so fragile and dictated by what’s going on in my life and mainly by my other half. How you hold me like a rag doll, pulling the strings, in charge of whether I feel happy, normal perhaps, or sad. After all it is a big part as to why we are here, aren’t we?

There you go, and from time to time we all become a hot mess. Filled with love and light, peace and calm, or anxiety and a hot mess, I see you and myself today. I acknowledge, forgive and be gentle with myself, for we are always divinely beautiful in each unique appearance. Even if we are a hot mess.


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 🙏🏼💙🦋
