with the change of season, comes a bit of introspection. 

energy knows no time, space, or distance

i’ve been feeling the waves of change, and am now experiencing the energy i was picking up on last year around this very time. i knew that something needed to change, what i was unprepared for was that something being me.

old + new 

over the last few years, i began to unravel habits formed during the past decade, and focus my energy on things that have always been a part of my life, yet at different times. introducing new things as well. old and new being woven together. and somehow it all seems to fit perfectly.

change from within

last year at this time, i was forced to change. literally. the messages i had been given were apparently not well received, therefore the Universe made sure to get my full attention. the experience came full force, and was the key in opening the door to my understanding of Self.

gratitude 

it is through this understanding, i am now able to see the divine timing of everything. the experiences that were needed in order to become who i am. fully step into my light, on the path of returning to Self. i am forever grateful for the lessons, and those who’ve helped me to get to here. where i came from and where it is that i am going. i am thankful for it all.

cyclical existence 

as with anything in nature, everything has a cycle. and for me this cycle is about connecting with self. listening to and following the heart. being in alignment with my path. being in harmony with nature. and having the awareness of self in the lessons and the learning process. the greatest lesson for me being, Self Love + Trust.

the path is ever evolving, and the heart is ever expanding.

it is in this last year that i have learned how to practice good self care, reconnect with nature, listen and truly feel – creating the foundation for the path as a healer and caretaker of Mother Earth. i am looking forward to sharing more in depth with you as we move further into alignment in our journey back to Self.

how the journey began…

i was always different, and i knew it.

there was a certain level of comfort in believing that truth for so long. yet, i see by that being the foundation for the path that led me to this very moment in time, it may have also triggered the perfection i acquired in isolating myself from human interaction. don’t get me wrong – i grew up in the public eye, in a small town where two rivers meet, and had much social interaction for most of my life. what i am speaking of here is the kind of interaction where you really allow another to see you for who it is that you are. i also understand that in not fully knowing who i was, how then could i present that to the world?

so, i hid.

then one day, i was guided to change. i went deep within to a place where i felt even more comfortable, in nature along the rivers edge. i began to discover the many facets of Self and embraced the teachings that nature taught me. many moons were spent where the rivers meet, and unbeknownst to me at the time, would eventually one day hold the space where i would be married.

fast forward.

i began to come into my own as a healer. becoming certified in a multitude of practices including; reiki, hypnotherapy, angel card reading, and Ayurvedic tongue analysis. studying herbal medicine, taking classes in the metaphysical arts, and reading about traditional healing practices became my life – and i was going to save the world.

that is the part of the journey where i learned it was quite the opposite. i was not going to save the world, but rather i needed to save myself.

but how?

well, for some time i have been in search of that very answer, and within the last year have been guided onto a more conscious path of self healing. as one of my deeply regarded teachers says, “you can’t take someone to a place you haven’t been.”

the last year has lead me on a path of reconnecting with my self + nature. it has been a process of acknowledging, accepting, releasing, letting go and repeating that pattern all over again. each layer comes as it needs to be healed, and at the level it can be met. revisiting places both within myself and nature that i once knew as a child, those of which have now seen me come into my own as a woman – who i am now – has been part of the process as well.

who am i?

a question that has been with me for as long as i can remember. last month for the first time i walked a labyrinth, and in doing so with that single question in my mind and heart, i received the answer. LOVE.

I AM LOVE.

it is that simple. the quest, the journey, the path all lead back to the core essence of who we are in life – if we so choose to allow.

with my heart and mind in alignment with my path, i invite you to travel with me on this journey of Self discovery and Self realization. for we are here to help each other heal, learn, and grow. come into our own. become we who are meant to be in this life, and take care of Mother Earth.

remember who we are
