Entering in Silence

It feels to me that just like the changing season of winter, I am entering a season of dormancy. I am slowing down yet I am moving ahead at full speed. Just in different ways. At times I am feeling like a philosopher, my musings and pondering’s are reaching a new level. A new way of questioning, a deeper level that is meant for me and doesn’t necessarily requires sharing. I seem to have less to say, although I have posted every day, mostly pre-scheduled posts with the occasional plug in. I look back to times when there was so much to be said, so many quotes to be posted, so much information to be shared, advice and wisdom that came to the surface, begging to be past on whether it was for sharing that wisdom or looking for like minded souls that related and validated that part of the journey. It seems that there is less of it. Plenty is still bubbling up, many more so than ever, but the means to share have changed and are becoming more streamlined. The new is slowly emerging and coming into light. A different way of sharing. A way of sharing with myself, marveling in all that I have learned.

Life has taught me to become a philosopher. To question everything and explore all the possibilities of what is and what can be. It has taught me that the proof lies within and that we have everything we need within ourselves. I know that I have said this many times before, but new meaning and new understanding is coming to this phrase every time we master one level of grasping the concept of it. New lessons are around the corner, bringing new meaning and understanding to what this statement really holds for me. At one time or another we will reach a point in our lives where we have to answer to ourselves and acknowledge what we are made of. Where we come face to face with the truth and the reality of things. Not for anyone else and not to prove anything to the world, but to answer to ourselves. To answer open and honestly without hiding behind the masks. To answer that ancient question and gain a deep understanding while learning not only about life and it’s many lessons, but also about ourselves so we can put our doubt to rest and become less of a critique to ourselves.


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 🙏🏼💙🦋

My heart and my soul recognizes yours and it’s a soul connection. Sending big hugs and much love your way. Always 🙏🏼💙🦋😘💐💋

      3. Yes it does. Mom used to always say that we can never do too well and that something will happen that requires our attention. I suppose this is where rolling with the punches comes in, or learning to dance in the rain and other sayings like these. You are doing great my friend. Keep going. 💙
