My Personal Serenity Prayer

     Going into the woods monday turning off the world to listen
to my soul and anything and everything spirit had to offer definitely peeled off two of the onion layers that had been quite ready to be tossed off my person!

     After six hours in conversation with the universe I joined thousands of students from the around the world in the Daily Love's week long extravaganza to peel off two more layers of the purple, yes, I am definitely a purple onion!
     And all of this in blessed conjunction with Deepak Chopra's 21 day meditation challenge,
 you can believe self revelation flew at me as if someone had loaded a tennis ball machine and just started shooting.  The balls that hit, are definitely hurting.

So I took notes.
I took pictures.
I cried.
I prayed, I'm praying.
I surrendered.
Then I took more pictures, I packed some boxes, took some more notes and fought back tears (yes there were happy ones too).
If these revelations are coming from the new moon or mercury retrograde, so be it.
I'm going to do what's best and forgive myself first.  Forgiveness returns us back to love.
Then I am going to extend that same grace to those currently in or out of relationship with me that
pull at my heart strings.
I love love.
I want to continue to love and it is my intention from this moment forward to love everyone, no matter what, with grace.

(oh and in no specific order :)

I didn't take pictures today. I didn't take notes. But I did show up to write a message to inspire you  - I am fully awake to wanting to inspire you to cultivate love in your life.  To relish joy within your own heart. (start local, go in!)
Ask questions. Then ask better questions. If you don't like the answers or the way you feel in this process change it.  Everyone wants to be happy.  It's the root of what are souls are truly looking for.

Keeping that in mind,  I move forward in the upcoming weeks hoping to be graceful as
big things are happening.
And in this moment, I am savoring the waiting. One of the beautiful lessons of this week.
Another lesson this week - with any transformation comes a natural anxiety. And I am a wee bit anxious in the unknown.
So to assist my journey through the last few layers of the purple onion that is my past, my present and uncovering more of my purpose and the upcoming holiday and days to come,
I created my own take, I remixed if you will -
The Serenity prayer.
Here it goes:

A Suicide Berceuse.

This is for you the broken hearted.This one is for you who can’t get out of bed and for you who may be finding it so damn hard to return the texts, emails and phone calls from anyone. 
This one is dedicated to those who having a hard time showing up because even thinking about showing up is too much energy. 
This one is for you who can’t seem to move on after the loss of a beloved. It’s for the ones whose days gone by are better than the days you’ve been wading through.This is for all of you who can’t catch a break financially, romantically or dream wise and wonder what it's all for.
The world has an immeasurable void in it. Constant pain inflicted from headlines or bylines is palpable. You’re unsure of your footing on our planet because the ground beneath you is unstable even when the sun shines otherwise. 
This one is for you who have contemplated at least once, perhaps even more than once about pressing the eject button on life. It’s here that you are in good company. It's…

4 Reasons Why Badmouthing Others is BAD For YOU.

I was talking today with a friend about the importance of words.  How you use them, positively, negatively any which way.  Words are like weapons.  Once you put them out there, they are pretty much impossible to take back.  Sure you can say you are sorry but it doesn't wipe the blood and guts off the floor from the initial bullet wound.  Forgiveness is key, but let's be mindful of our words from the get.  Dig?

Here's a repurposed blog to go along with those thoughts.

Everyone gets hurt. No one is perfect. People mess up. Mistakes are made. But the cross you bare when you badmouth someone else's questionable deeds or good fortunes, their life advances or personal tragedies is a very heavy one.

When you engage in loose lip service per say "warning" peers or anyone within earshot about someone or someone's "drama" or perhaps you seem to regurgitate the pain someone has caused you over and over to friends, strangers, clients, family members....wel…

The Sum of all Jitters

Monday, I leave my precious, beautiful and sacred bubble of Jim Thorpe for New York City to embark on my first week of Kundalini Yoga teacher training.  This learning adventure will stretch over the course of the next eight months. It's something that has been pulling at my heart for the last five years in terms of spiritual and physical evolution.

 And naturally with most new personal mega shifts or changes comes a tinge of fear. 
Yes, it's normal.  Don't use my words against me. But the 17 year old who lives somewhere inside of me sits up, batting her eyes so that I take notice.  She thanks me for honoring our future. She is excited for possibility and for helping others, always. But she bites her lip "even though we've come so far regarding our body image, even though we've done so much self love/self esteem work over the years, I'm still scared to wear white pants."

And I feel her..

It's not because I stain every white piece of clothing I o…
