Can you feel it?

A new chapter is being written and we are turning the page. Can you feel the energy shifting as we close out the year? I feel changes happening, changes that prepare me for a new year and what’s to come. In fact change is happening all the time, but I feel it in different ways these days, and not so much is passing me by to become hindsight at a later point. It seems to be experienced more in the moment, when it happens, instead of looking back. It seems that by giving up the need to control things, it was control that was gained. What a crazy concept.

I can tell that much has changed. That few things remain the same and that all is how it is meant to be. I am much more at peace these days and there are fewer battles. It often seems as if the majority of the hard work is done and that different times are just around the corner. Do you feel it? Life will always come at us in one way or another, and there will always be a mountain to climb. Yet it doesn’t matter anymore and there is nothing daunting, scary and intimidating about it. We’ve done the work and we’re armed and prepared for whatever comes our way. Can you feel it? We no longer match the same energy if a day doesn’t go our way. Instead we recognize for what it is without faltering. Our elevated frequency remains and we move through it almost unfazed. No longer do we allow incidents of the unexpected bring down our mood. No longer do we fall into the rabbit hole on a downward spiral, feeling like a victim, wishing and waiting for that one day when our life will be perfect. We have come to accept all that is, even the tough moments and the downs of life. Can you feel it?

We have chosen and we simply don’t have time to entertain feelings and emotions that don’t serve us any longer. The chase of acceptance, love, validation, acknowledgement and friendship has ended and the only thing we chase these days is our own well being. Can you feel it? We hope to bring others along so we can share some of the path and can walk in company, but even the company we want to share this experience with has become very selective, hasn’t it? We no longer waste our time trying to convince and trying to be heard. It someone doesn’t matter the same like it used to anymore. We have made peace with the things out of our control. Can you feel it?

We are like a sponge, absorbing our experiences, our emotions, and feelings, but somehow we have learned to add a cleansing filter to the mix. We absorb less of the damaging stuff, the stuff that doesn’t feel good, and instead we connect more with what does. This reminds me of what I said about control and strangely giving up control allows us gain exactly what we gave up. Control. The irony here is that the more we entertain this space of connecting more with what feels good, the more we’re met with desirable outcomes that meet us where we are. Can you feel 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 🙏🏼💙🦋

  1. Everything is the reverse of what we think it is, everything has an opposite to guide us, all is only ever unbalanced when we are…and thankfully that very balanced energy called love guides us accordingly ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋
    Now where did I put that chocolate? 😂 Ok, I’ve still got a couple of lusts to fix 🤣

    This is my response each time you ask, as I read. I read with a smile on me for the resonance. This is such blessed transition into the new year yes, all the work is coming to fruition, there is no chasing, grieving, escaping, anything. Just a very new way of being.

    1. And another smile is on my face. You take the words right out of my mouth and doesn’t it feel wonderful to have come this far. To see everything with such new eyes as if we are looking in from the outside, watching ourselves like proud parents without having to interfere. Everything is taking shape and peacefully we await the next chapter. 💙🙏🏼
