Self Mastery through Commitment

My intention at this Moon is Commitment to a full-hearted life

‘Every moon phase, each turn of the zodiac wheel, and every season accelerates us and moves us closer to knowing ourselves better … if we do the the work and allow the lessons to be given. I am a huge fan of Virgo and Virgo tendencies- I exude a lot of them even though I have very little earth prominent in my own chart. And since picking up the travel companion of Self Mastery on my path this year the power of a Virgo moon is much appreciated as they are excellent at Mastery.’

Rooting out our Comparative Tendencies

Observing comparison in my own life is helping me live beyond its shadow

‘Comparison. A word that all of us are familiar with in personal ways for certain. Comparison is one of the shadow aspects we learn at a really young age. There is of course the rather benign comparisons, like price or quality comparisons, which are good judgement skills to have. But then there are the more self sabotaging comparisons that lead us deeper into our own illusions and further from who we truly are. Modern culture feasts on these types of comparisons (who wore it better? who has more followers?) and we have all been subconsciously programmed to comparative thinking at one point or another.’

Why Ayurveda is My Mainstay

What Ayurveda is and why I will always practice this life science.

‘As I have been preparing and planning to get back in the swing of teaching, and teaching Ayurveda specifically, I have been feeling all the feels around my journey with the science. And it truly has been a journey, one with both highs and lows, but through it all I continue to come back to the teachings, principles, and practices.’

Reinventing with Aquarius Energy

Using this Aquarian Energy to think bigger, bolder, and in truth of my Highest Self

‘I had every intention of writing a post for the New Moon in Aquarius but something kept telling me to wait and see what unfolded as the lunar cycle evolved. After years of studying, reflecting, and tracking the lunar cycles and their impacts on my life I am noticing a gentle shift now to the grander six week solar cycle of the zodiac seasons themselves.’

NEW! The Simple Spring Cleanse Workshop

My first workshop of 2019 is here and happening March 23!

‘I am so incredibly excited to get back into the swing of teaching and holding space in workshops at the Ayurveda Natural Health Center in March! And it only seemed fitting to begin with The Simple Spring Cleanse, my modernized approach to the traditional Ayurvedic Spring Cleanse. Spring has always been the season to cleanse the body of winters stagnation and boost inner vitality for the more robust seasons ahead and I have made it so it can more easily fit into the busier lifestyle of the modern person and for any level of participant.’

I overlooked the importance of integrity to myself and how I am getting back on track.

Want to know another little fun ‘side effect’ of being off the social media bandwagon? You get so.much.clarity on what it is you are meant to be doing with your life.

To Be Captivated

One of my greatest desires is to be captivated by life

‘Through this awareness that has been crystallizing I realize now that I want nothing more than to be captivated. I desire to be in deep knowing with others, to witness subtleties of an experience, to understand more comprehensively. Our minds are not enemies, they are incredible instruments with limitless potential if we channel their energy effectively. Imagine a world where engagement is authentic, focused, and meaningful for all? The spontaneous and natural eruption of more compassion, understanding, and connection would radically change the way in which we exist!’

Imbolc: Midway to Spring

Imbolc Blessings!

I truly love living where we experience each seasonal expression of Mother Nature and this week we experienced this slight turn of the years wheel in palpable ways. Here in the midwest our week was snow coated and sub zero with the polar vortex blowing through. And then, right on time, as the eve of Imbolc arrived the freezing temps started to warm up and the snow began to melt.

One Month of Logging Off

One month since logging off Social Media!

‘We don’t know what we don’t know and this is how I feel about the ways in which I edited myself to keep up with the hundreds of Jones’ I was following. As the weeks have continued my clarity of who I am has revealed itself more each day, the inessential and the untruths have just started to fall away. These things had no foundation on which to stand and when I took away the source of their creation the flow of comparative and what-if thinking just started to slowly shift.’

Is Over-Identifying Stunting Our Growth?

Brain dumping thoughts about how identity may slow our growth on the path to Self Mastery

‘We are incredibly blessed to have access to incredible insight, studies, theories, and practices that help us to understand ourselves better, in fact, our culture is pretty obsessed with it, but I am wondering at what point is self study slowing down our growth or worse- keeping us stuck in stories that don’t serve us?’
