I often wonder how I got to this place… through all the trials and tribulations… how I somehow continued despite the derailment, the heartbreak, and the shattering of dreams.  I did manage to survive it all, and to arrive here in this moment where I can see the blessings in my life, where I can see the beauty, where my heart is open with gratitude, and where my soul is at peace.      

That’s me.  I am an ever-changing emotional weather system.  My moods and outlook shift like the winds, one minute I am brimming with bright, smiley happiness, and the next I am a sorrowful, depleted and tearful shell of myself.   I think I have always been like this – high-strung, sensitive, emotional.  Things tend to always really affect me. And as the Mermaid that I am, I swim to the depths of my heart and soul, and in those caverns, feeling… Read more »

You are the greatness…. the beauty…. the stars in the sky…  We are living in an amazing time where we have the opportunity to connect and be one, collectively and globally.  The technology is here and the internet and social media provide the threads of which we can weave a new paradigm, a new world.  Today marks the launch of The Wellness Universe Directory.  I am very excited to be a part of this new resource of facebook pages and… Read more »

All of us are so intricately designed and woven… our synapses, the energy that ignites our thoughts, so distinctive. Our emotional heart bodies, vulnerable and broken open. Our varied physicalness embodies infinite forms.  Our paths, each of us following our personal unique code, are expansive and only limited by our own belief in who we are and who we can be. We are the rushing of the tides. We are as vast in our complexity and possibilities as the ocean… Read more »

Swimming through the currents of life can be quite difficult at times. The turbulent waters can be challenging, the rough and choppy rushing of the waves can undermine the strongest of foundations, testing our resolve, our confidence, and our very outlook. Not one of us is immune to the tangled ropes, the discomfort of walking rocky shores, the sting of seaweed wrapped around our mermaid forms, or even the bite from a fellow soul of the sea. Yet despite the… Read more »

The other day a flock of crows, actually a murther which has morphed into the term murder of crows, due to their scavenging nature, gathered in the trees in our yard. At first I gulped and my heart skipped a beat. I was immediately fearful letting my superstitions take me hostage. Everything I knew about crows signaled a bad omen and death. And I had just booked travel to Europe so I was sufficiently freaked out. But my friend who… Read more »

Who am I?  We can all answer that question in regards to what roles we play: whether we are a parent, a spouse, a sibling, a child, what kind of work we do, what kind of service we are committed to. The background we come from, the education we have, everything seems to define who we are. I am a mother, daughter, sister, and spouse. I am inspired to connect to and express my creative voice through writing and to… Read more »

There are just some days when everything feels like it is falling apart.  The emotional chaos seems too much to bare, and the reveal of how deeply painful it all is plunges you down into the darkest cave.  You try to see light and hold on to all the inspiration you have memorized and planted.  The “everything happens for a reason,” “there is a lesson in everything,” and “trust the universe,” all feel so shallow, your faith and belief are… Read more »
