This post was created as an update to my about me page and to share some insights with you. I could no longer identify with naming this blog “A Warriors Story.” It used to be something I was very proud of, but these days it left me feeling sad that I had encountered so many incidents where I had to warrior through in life.
Fact is that we are those warriors, and there will always be a battle of some sort. Always an up hill mountain to climb because there is no rest for the weary. But in the end what is most important is how we fight and how we survive these times. How we reinvent ourselves and how we align ourselves with our most authentic self. How we support peace within us and pursue the things that set our soul on fire.
It’s not a matter of not having these battles for they are essential, but a matter of how we embrace the pain, the shadow side to ourselves, how we overcome ancestral trauma and how we heal our inner child. How we rise from the ashes and truly become free.
And here is a copy of the new “About me” page. I hope you stop by and if any of this resonates with you, please let me know right there.
About me: Rhapsody Bohème – Phoenix Rising
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 when 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 the hamster wheel, and I am in the process of 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.
