In these uncertain times it is vital to continue cultivating a strong foundation. What do I mean by a strong foundation? Well, when the chips are down, what are the beliefs, knowledge, understanding and practices in your life that truly support you? What "holds you up" no matter what? That is your foundation.
Are you seeing a few places your foundation that could be shored up and made stronger? I know that I certainly am! And I'm willing to bet so are most of us right now. But this is a really good thing - this is an amazing opportunity for improvement in our lives! Sometimes only in times of upheaval can we see the weak spots and opportunities for expansion and growth.
One of the most stable pieces of my foundation is meditation. I dim the lights, close the door, curl up in a cozy blanket in my favorite chair, close my eyes and turn my attention inwards... and I always find the Light within the darkness.
I have been personally practicing meditation for 10+ years at this point and I recommend this practice to reduce stress, rebalance and center. Beginning each day from a place of relaxation and a peaceful mindset is highly beneficial - whether it is a typical day, or perhaps even more so during times of uncertainty like what's happening right now in our world.
Now... this is a dark time we are living through. So many people have been affected by the Coronavirus, some have made it through and some have passed on. My heart goes out to every single person who's lost someone and those who we have lost. To the healthcare workers and essential services employees helping those who are suffering and keeping things moving. Also to those who have lost their jobs, who are separated from family and friends and those of us feeling alone. I feel your pain and I have had moments of struggle of my own within these past few months of dealing with a new reality.
Yet times are never so dark that we cannot find the light, love and joy - even in these uncomfortable or even distressing circumstances. Darkness can never drive out light, yet light always drives out darkness. It is so important right now to find, appreciate and even celebrate the many reasons we have to be grateful. We can also find comfort and hope in the wonder, goodness and magick we have yet to create and experience in our lives!
This opportunity allows us as individuals to * pause * and reflect, refocus and redirect those aspects of our lives and ourselves which don't quite line up with our authentic self - that part of us which calls us forward to our greatness. And I cannot think of a more ripe opportunity to do so as humanity as a whole * pauses * and reflects, refocuses and redirects our perspective to hopefully one of greater unity as a human family. It remains to be seen, as it will rest on the decisions of each of us as individuals to add to this collective shift.
Sending you Love and Light,
p.s. I am offering FREE Online Meditations every Wednesday during the Stay at Home / Stay Safe order. Can't make this one? More upcoming meditations.
The path is walked by few, the way is narrow, the rewards are beyond measure. This is the path of Know Thyself. Pause - Reflect, Recenter, Refocus - I keep asking myself throughout my days in the midst of such change “what is really important right now?” This is such an incredible opportunity for seeing what really matters. Love being the highest on my list for sure! Then choice, I always have a choice how to respond, even when it appears I am powerless I am indeed not. And thirdly connection - with the divine, with the divinity within, with the divinity in others.

It can be difficult to discern your true voice and identity from a false version of yourself you’ve created because something bad or scary or even good happened in your past. If you are living based on patterns created from part experiences, are you ever really making a decision in the now moment with your authentic being? This is something I help my clients grapple with often. Specific teachings and tools to identify the true self from the walls we’ve created to protect ourselves or patterns we’ve created to keep doing something others like so they don’t reject us are in the 2-day Empower Thyself program. Learn how the mind really works and ways to clear negative mental patterns which keep you looping through the same experiences over and over!! Break through!! Reclaim your power over your mind, your life and your authenticity. Next opportunity March 21st & 22nd, Seattle WA.

My new plant baby. Isn’t he just the cutest!! I have recently rediscovered my love for tending and nurturing plants. This little guy is the newest arrival 🌱💕✨
Cultivating life is a gift and responsibility in all of its forms. The Universal system of Kabbalah in the Modern Mystery School refers to this as nurturing and pruning our Tree of Life. Each part of the tree must be attended to. If a branch breaks or doesn’t bear good fruit you must cut it off for the benefit of the whole tree. If the tree bears good fruit you know what you have done has created balance.
Within each of us is a Tree of Life. What parts of our life are going well and producing good fruits? Which parts need help or perhaps must be removed for our overall well-being? Our lives require constant attention and awareness. When we tend our own tree of life, we generate what we require to then help others.

💖 Love is an expansive energy that reaches out and reconciles differences, embraces the new and bridges gaps. When flowing the quality of love your life seems to expand!!
💖 Love requires us to aspire to courage, faith, harmony, beauty, strength, splendor, eternity and our royal nature within.
💖 And in the famous words of the great bard and mystery school initiate William Shakespeare -
“Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O no! it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.
Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle's compass come:
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved.”
- Sonnet 116 💖

The Japanese term for “reason for being"...
I call this the Life Purpose. For a long time I wasn’t sure exactly what my Life Purpose was... I wasn’t really lost, but I didn’t really have a big goal I was working towards either... I received the Life Activation and things started to change. It became easier to make decisions, and pretty soon my life had a real direction. I took the Empower Thyself program and started to develop a personal morning practice.
This new direction gave me a sense of freedom. I also found my fears and worries fading with new confidence. I began to support others on their journey. It felt like my calling. Your calling... is in the center! YOU are in the center. The Mystery Schools have always advised one primary goal, to “Know Thyself”.
Authentic passion, vocation, profession and mission in one’s life comes from knowing oneself...
That true, deep self awareness that shines forth into the darkness... and lights your way.
The world needs Your Light!
