Loving Yourself Means More than Just Manicures

Loving Yourself Means More than Just Manicures

How many times have you heard the words:
“Be sure to practice self-love!”
“Do you have self-love?” or
“How does your self-love look?”

If you’re anything like I used to be, I would wonder, “what the heck does that even mean?” You think you have self love. I mean, you love yourself enough to be here, right…? You love yourself enough to be reading articles about it…

Self love is a topic many people talk about and yet, few people truly understand.

Self love isn’t about going out and getting a mani-pedi or massage (although those are nice, too). Self love is a process and a journey that begins when we decide we are worthy of our own love and attention.

Disarming the Voices

Disarming the Voices

We all have voices in our head. The voices of our stories, the things we tell ourselves which we believe to be true. These stories we carry around with us make up the worlds that we live in.

“You’re too fat.”
“You’re too skinny.”
“You’re not pretty.”
“You’re useless.”
“You have nothing to offer.”
“You’re not worthy of love and affection.”
“You deserve to die miserable and alone.”

The Value of Personal Healing: As told by a healer

The Value of Personal Healing: As told by a healer

As a therapist, coach, and all around bad ass healer, sometimes I forget what it took to get here.

While I was on the phone with a new coach I recently hired for myself and she challenged me on mindset, I informed her that I have actually invested thousands of dollars over the past few years in working on my own personal development, healing, and growth. I knew I had done a lot of personal healing, I just hadn't realized how many tens of thousands of dollars I have spent in doing so. I felt the need to let her know.

The Lies We Tell Ourselves

The Lies We Tell Ourselves

The stories we tell ourselves. Lies. All lies. Until we find our stories and heal them. Until we see where they come from and hear them. Until we hear them with love and compassion and kindness. Until we can welcome them with an open heart. And once we do that, more accurate and true stories can emerge. Until then, they are all lies. 

The theme of the process of unbecoming in order to become has been on my mind for a few months now, and this blog is finally ready to be written as I too have been moving through clearing a number of the old lies I've told myself, as I too have been moving through the process of unbecoming in order to become. 

Triple Whammy of Astrological Intensity: A time to Turn Inward

     Triple Whammy of Astrological Intensity: A time to Turn Inward

If you have been feeling any level of intensity these past couple weeks, especially this week in particular, you are not alone. 

Energetically and astrologically we have been in a sort of triple whammy. The planets and the skies, the moon, the energies, everything has been incredibly intense.
