Be the Rainbow You’re Meant to be is now “unfiltered from the heart” So often we embrace some aspects of our lives while trying to resist others. We judge what we feel is “good” to feel and seek more of it, then we shun the parts that do not fit. This puts us at the mercy of our external environment andContinue reading “Be the Rainbow You’re Meant to be”

Permission to be Happy

Why wait for every aspect of your life to be okay before you can allow yourself to feel happiness? Why wait for those last dreadful pounds to lose their grip on your hips to feel alive inside? Why wait for the perfect mate, leaving so much of your life to someone else’s fate, before embracingContinue reading “Permission to be Happy”

Visualization: Life’s GPS

When we want to create a change in our lives, visualization can be a very helpful tool. Yet we also need to use some precautions, too. I often remind my physical therapy clients, “Just as marathoners see themselves crossing the finish line, it’s important for you to visualize what you want to achieve.” If oneContinue reading “Visualization: Life’s GPS”

Relationships: Insecure Attachments

Sometimes we go through life completely unaware of some of our own inner mechanisms and motivations. In doing research for an upcoming certification exam, I discovered a research article that had discovered a correlation between women who have pelvic pain and who are insecurely attached. So naturally, my inner “armchair psychologist” wanted to know more. Continue reading “Relationships: Insecure Attachments”

Inside of each of us is a superhero waiting to be activated.  It’s becoming more and more apparent that the planet needs us to stop playing small. Rise up, beautiful people. Fill your hearts with the golden light of love. Go forth and show others that this life is to be loved.  It really doesn’tContinue reading “Superheroes Assemble!”

Heralding a New Life

The little things we do for or against ourselves add up. Listening to and shaking my hips to music while getting ready in the mornings has literally changed the course of my life. (Morning Playlist) Now I face each day with a new welcomeness and openness. It truly gives me a fresh start and anContinue reading “Heralding a New Life”

From Suffering to Transmutation 

People have a hard time letting go of their suffering. Out of a fear of the unknown, they prefer suffering that is familiar. ~ Thich Nhat Hanh Yesterday, I was basically describing how I felt unsafe being happy in Waiting for the Bottom to Fall Out?  For so long my safety zone has been builtContinue reading “From Suffering to Transmutation¬†“

Waiting for the Bottom to Fall Out?

The sun is shining and I’m doing my best to soak it all in. Yet I’m ready to run on a moments notice as the winds pick up and the dark clouds lurk at a distance. Waiting for the bottom to fall out. For the past few weeks I’ve been riding a relative high. Yes,Continue reading “Waiting for the Bottom to Fall Out?”

Lost Youth Rekindled

Unfiltered from the Heart At a young age, I learned to suppress and filter my truth, in the process I also lost my youth. Even with my blog, I’ve held so much of myself back.  Yesterday, I reached a turning point and am in the process of changing things a bit to become “unfiltered fromContinue reading “Lost Youth Rekindled”

Grateful to be Alive

As I pause and wait for the security doors to open, I am grateful to be going to the gym in the pre-dawn hours this day. I hold the hot tall flat white, the liquid heat warming my hands on this cool morning. I am grateful to be alive. I am grateful to be ableContinue reading “Grateful to be Alive”
