Otter Spirit January 2022

Welcome to 2022 dear friends and family. We are starting the year with a new month and new energy has stepped forward. Honestly I didn’t know who or what would show up as we begin anew, building upon all we have achieved last year. And what a year it has been. At first I was a little surprised to see Otter Spirit stepping forward, reminding us that we are never alone, but then it all made sense. When I look back at the past months, I see myself almost as if in isolation. Partly self inflicted and partly because people have come and gone on their path that at one point collided with mine. The self inflicted part, perhaps stems from a lack of either encountering like minded souls who walk the path as well, or perhaps even because of a believe of not being understood. Of accepting such a belief and knowing that part of this journey, part of this path has to be walked alone. Have you felt this way? Perhaps now, with all the knowledge and wisdom we have gathered, it’s time to remember that we are never truly alone.

Like true friend, Otters nurture each other and express their affection through touch. Actions such as holding hands and giving hugs offer reassurance that we were never really alone and that we are always cherished. Otter spirit has appeared to remind you to experience and express friendship in a tangible and even tactile way. Communicate with your voice, your facial expressions, gestures, and your actions, letting your love express itself beyond just the words you speak. Otter spirit’s message is that presence matters, so remember to be fully present with those you care about, helping them sense the love and affection and appreciation you have for them. Now is the time for a joyful celebration of the love in your life that expresses as friendship and companionship. Hug someone, touch their arm, or simply look into their eyes with your full attention, saying “I care. You matter,” Make time for friendship. Otter spirit promises that the moment you reach out, you will remember that you too have many who love and care about you. You are never alone and you are always loved.

You deserve support and love from many people and when Otter spirit arrives, you are reminded that you have a community behind you. You are not alone unless you choose to walk alone. Even then your community is behind you and cheers for you in silence. Somewhere is another supporter that is waiting for the opportunity and the gift of being able to give to you. You could take great joy in seeing their affection, happiness, and joy once you allow their kindness to shower you. Otter spirit wants you to open your eyes and whether you choose to take advantage of the love that surrounds you or not, you need to be aware that it is there for you from all directions.

Have a wonderful month my friends and know that you are loved and supported.


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. You were in that separation time, a time to find yourself and realign what now has meaning and release what no longer matters. It can be quite confronting but with a friend or two you will feel that connection when needed…and a time to be alone to bare your heart to yourself. Painful…yes…changing…yes…becoming a new you…oh yes indeed. And a more loving, empathetic and compassionate heart you will not find but through those doorways. And I know if I knock a more loving home I will not find. Have a beautiful month too Rhapsody…no, in fact…just have a great year 😂 🤣 ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋
