Greetings From The Shadows

It's dark season and snow magic has fallen upon this scenic, historic town.
Slippery walks and twinkling lights decorate the streets.
Strangers keep piling through my front door
searching for anything to bring them out of the cold.
I welcome them.

We are almost upon a brand new year.
Family and friends past have come to call.
The days have been packed with presents, cookies, music and what nots.
The full moon of course, had it's own agenda.

With 2013 a stones throw and a few hours away,
there is much anticipation of a clean slate, of new beginnings,
of resolution and resolve.

Tis the season! The full moon and snow magic are perfect for such things!
That being said, I encourage you to take the time today to give yourself the opportunity to say goodbye to what's no longer serving you and make a detailed list of the things you want to see come to life in the days ahead.
The sage, it burns tonight.
If you do not have some, throw sea salt at your doorsteps and over your window panes.
Ask for clarity and persistence to bring the things into your life that will move you to where you heart longs to be. But first, make space for those beautiful things by saying goodbye to what no longer serves you for your highest good.

So be it.

On a personal note;
I'm missing my family & those who were kept away in inclement weather or otherwise.
I am so very grateful for the time shared with those who have graced my doorstep
and those I ventured to see. Feeling lucky. So damn lucky.

To honor the dark season I have made some severe changes to my appearance and the way I will be conducting the business until Spring Equinox comes to call.
I'm thrilled about this, to duck behind holiday shadows and deeper into the dark season diving into  projects and business that beckon me.

But before I nestle myself away in the rabbit hole,
I want to acknowledge that I am ever so grateful for the love of my daughter, my family, my friends and my continued supporters. There was so much transition, death and loss this year  but community really rang through and keeps my heart singing.
What it taught me was that defenselessness really is weapon of love, that loving those closest to us is easy but loving those who hurt us the most is one of the greatest challenges and that no matter what status your relationship is everyone in your life is your soul mate because they serve as a divine mirror - reflecting back to you the good parts you like about yourself and vice versa.

To end this wild year, my internet security came into question. I've had to change passwords and entertain a few phone calls about why we may or may no longer be friends on different social media outlets.  Well, this reaffirms to me that we are not our status updates and our relationship online.  The inter-web is only one facet of this great big shiny life.
With a flashlight on this, I've asked my guides for meaning. There is a great need to strengthen real time relationships, connection and community in the living, breathing realm.
So with this breach,  I see quite an opportunity to do such things.
Don't worry, we are still very much 'friends' I am however in no rush to refriend over four hundred people that have left my list. It just seems maddening to reach out and declare what should be obvious.
I am just going to step away from my personal social media accounts,  for now, feeling a bit vulnerable but determined to smile at strangers and hug a little tighter in real time.

Goodbye 2012 and all it's bells, whistles,
Storms, social media mishaps, dirty soapsuds and bittersweet endings.
Thank you for the lessons, for the ride and the magic and miracles that keep us moving forward.
Hello 2013. Hello to taking even more leaps of faith, loving deeper and living with not one regret.

My friends, I am so very blessed to know you.
I am so very blessed to have you in my life and I am more than honored to be of your service.

Wishing you A Happy New Year.

I love you.
XOXO,
Michelle

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…

Here are my demands.

Everyday, dozens of questions come at me via text, email, voicemail, Facebook,
instagram and on the street. My late friend Tommy encouraged me to answer every single one because every one, EVERYONE matters.  And yes, I truly do believe that.

In my spiritual practice, my intention is to hold space with those who are looking to open up more, to be inspired, to touch possibility then take that into their world and light the next candle closest to them. Every day I pray for healing - for you, for the good of all.
That is what fires me up. That is what gets me pumped in the morning when I'm dancing solo in my kitchen getting ready to take on the day, bringing on the good vibes!

Sure, I may see things other ignore. And true, I've been known to serve as a line between the physical and the unseen.  But what's most important is that I am a soul, just like you having a human experience. With that comes the same trials, tribulations and concerns you have on a daily basis
- trust me…
