Offerings from my Heart to Yours
Body-centered wisdom, reclamation of the feminine, and the path to inner knowledge.
Why does sovereignty matter? If you want to be free, you must be sovereign. I’m talking about true, internal freedom that is not based on a fleeting moment or circumstance. I thought I found freedom when I left a successful legal career as a criminal prosecutor. I thought I found freedom when I traveled aroundContinue reading “Why does Sovereignty matter?”
When I want to turn away from something – an experience, a feeling, a person – I have to ask myself why. What about the experience am I rejecting? What within myself is afraid to face it? Am I turning away by conscious choice, or am I reacting out of fear? Usually, it’s when thingsContinue reading “True Medicine”
It’s okay to feel how you feel. Your feeling is not who you are. It does not define you. Rather, feelings help us to understand our own experience. When we look at them, and spend time receiving their guidance, we learn the thoughts, beliefs, perceptions and fears at their root. Once we get to theContinue reading “How to Overcome Judgment”
Sovereignty is rooted in deep self-knowledge. This knowledge creates the ability to consciously choose for ourselves, which is true freedom. Only with awareness can we decide: Do I continue thinking this thought? Do I keep this belief? Is it mine? Do I want it? If not, what do I want to believe? We begin toContinue reading “What do You Want?”
I want to talk about judgment. It is one of the quickest and easiest ways to shut someone down — or to feel shut down by another. When I feel judged, my body immediately begins to contract. It feels small and protective. My guard goes up. Defenses come out. A part of me even wantsContinue reading “How to Confront Judgment”
I think it’s interesting how feelings are considered the realm of women only. Men aren’t “supposed” to feel because feelings are deemed “weak” or “unimportant.” They’re said to stand in the way of rational thinking, rather than a complement. So many women — myself included — adopt this viewpoint and give feelings an inferior status.Continue reading “The Heart Feels”
When we’re not sure whether we want to be in relationship with someone or not, it signals a time to deeply listen. If we are thinking about changing jobs, or moving to a new city, it requires us to focus on our true desires. It’s especially necessary when we feel conflicted or confused about theContinue reading “How to Know What You Want”
I almost neglected writing a blog this week because I have way more feelings than thoughts. It’s not as easy to put them on paper. So often, when a feeling arises, we try to analyze it. If it doesn’t “make sense,” it is easy to tell ourselves we “shouldn’t” feel that way and shove itContinue reading “Healing the Wound”
What, my dear, is self-love? To me, it’s like becoming your own lover. Your own best friend. Your own helper and companion. It’s sitting with yourself in complete silence so you can hear and listen deeply, soaking up every bit of wisdom that arises. It’s connecting with the essence of who you are and lettingContinue reading “The truest essence of self-love”
We fear our anger, but it fuels our desire to change. Sometimes, anger is necessary. It says, “Wake up. Open your eyes. Stop playing small.” Anger rises when we have been ignored. Rejected. Made invisible. Or when we feel powerless. Anger warns us when others try to overstep our boundaries. Anger yells, “Hey you! StopContinue reading “Anger as a Source of Truth”
