Invoking the ancestors

This fire is different than the fire ceremony I learned. It’s a prayer fire. But it’s also the same. It’s how we connect to our ancestors. It’s the tongue of Pachamama that we feed with offerings, presence, and prayer.

Just Presence

How do you show up when you have nothing? Like literally when you’re naked. If you were stripped of everything that made you “you” - what would be left? It’s just presence. That’s all we really have. Is our presence.

I've forgotten that I'm beautiful

Sometimes I wonder what it would feel like to know that I was beautiful. I see a woman with perfectly wavy blonde hair walking down the street. What would it feel like to have hair that perfect? I see a woman next to me in yoga with every ab muscle showing and wonder what her life is like. I think well maybe she has no problems or worries because she looks that good.

I've made falafel a thousand times

Eerily, I knew exactly what to do. I knew what to make ahead and what to prep. I knew the order to cook in. I knew the elements to bring together to create a nourishing seasonal vegan feast. It came to me so naturally — I looked up recipes for inspiration but I didn’t even really need them.

Poppies close at night

I am the flower. The feminine is the flower. Just going about life until the sun shines his light on her. She feels witnessed. Seen. She opens up and blooms in his presence. Her layers peel back and she can flourish, finally.

The things we create in order to survive

\What matters to me is the energy we have between us. It’s that energy that drives creation.

Mystery School

So much in my life makes no sense at the moment but this feels clear. It’s as if I have been waiting my whole life to come into these teachings. It’s on the edge of both my intellectual and spiritual capacity.

The Earth Is Bipolar Too

People say they have IBS or have the flu. No one says "I am irritable bowel syndrome." But when it comes to mental health -- we are what we have. "I am depressed" or "I am bipolar."

Calling out to the divine

I’m just beginning to realize that my search for sacred is not unique (I’m an enneagram 4 so I’m programmed to think I’m super special…hey at least I’m aware of this!), but it is the original, most primal search that we humans engage in.

Connection is always available

“Ya praying?” He asked. This is lower Fillmore. I might have been afraid to be seen praying on the street corner, especially as a Jewish woman given everything that that implies. But I trusted I was safe and stayed open instead of ignoring him or rushing away.

Fall Seven, Rise Eight

Sitting on the floor of the rink in a lot of pain with a big smile on my face, I realized why I had gotten this ping to go roller skating. It's because I had fallen down in life and had to get back up. This was just the literal version of the existential pain I was going through. A physical injury for my metaphysical pain.

Hallelujah, I'm free.

I realized that my uncontrollable crying was actually healing – part of the attunement is that memories or emotions come back up to be processed and healed. One woman recommended that the book "Rise Sister Rise" might be a sweet treat for me at this time. I have a thing where I will get any book anyone recommends to me because part of how Spirit works through me is through book recommendations (yes, I am that much of a bookworm).

We have to shamanize

For most of my life, I’ve tried to be “normal.” Calm, cool, and collected. I’ve been afraid to share my true voice because what if people think I’m crazy? Or too much? What if no one loves the real me?

Moving forward one step at a time

I had a moment of reckoning at 3am on Sunday morning. I'd gone out to dinner with a close friend and then we went to get a little mezcal at a bar on Polk Street. I came home and had a piece of cannabis chocolate to help me go to bed. I fell asleep but woke up at a witching hour feeling crazy. Angry at myself for turning to vices as a coping mechanism for my grief and sorrow.

The rise of the soul-o-preneur

The entrepreneurial journey is a spiritual Journey. It might not start this way. It could be that you're going about your life when something gnaws at you. You begin to see that something is missing in the world — it's a void that only you seem to be able see. And then you realize that it’s yours to fill and that you are the one you've been waiting for all this time.

SOS

SOS! SOS! It came to me as I was tossing and turning trying to go to sleep. My call for help was being answered in the form of a download from spirit guides in another realm but at first I didn’t get it. Why was this idea popping in my head as I was trying to fall asleep?
