Emotional pain is defined as an experience of pain and discomfort brought about by our mental perception of an event or person's behavior as being hurtful. When we hold onto past hurts and do not forgive, we become resentful and accumulate more emotional pain and tension in our bodies. Our interpretations of an event cause the perception of those interpretations to be painful on an emotional and physical level, because one cannot be experienced without the other. We experience for example, heartache in our stomach, chest and throat area. It is so important to give ourselves the time and space to be available to our hurt emotions, so they may process and release naturally. Our nature is to be in constant motion just as our digestion is always happening, so too is our emotional digestion. We can digest, process and flow our emotions more efficiently when we...

Gossip: Casual or unconstrained conversation or reports about other people, typically involving details that are not confirmed as being true. Have you ever thought of how much time in your day you spend talking bad or commenting to someone about someone else without really knowing what is true?   Did you know that when we talk bad about others we actually are stressing our bodies out and lowering our frequency or vibration? We are harming ourselves when we gossip and comment about other people and what we assume about them. My seven year old daughter tells me about a little girl in her 1st grade class that is so mean. This little girl excludes my daughter or tries to take her best friend away. I ask my daughter if she is ever mean to anyone in the past. She responds yes. I ask her if she feels this little girl...

Do you make decisions with ease and clarity or do you frequently feel confused and unsure on what are the right choices for you to make in your life? Too often we spend time going back and forth in our heads and postpone making any decision because of insecurity, resentment, fear, doubt or anxiety.

Gain mental clarity, clear the confusion and discover a more focused you with the following 3 exercises: 1. Cultivate Awareness and Intuition.

LET GO AND GROW Have you ever thought, “What if a tree were to keep all of it’s dried up leaves every fall season? Can you imagine what that would look like during the winter time? It would take a lot of extra energy from that tree for it to hold on to all of it’s dead leaves, for it’s nature is to shed, it’s nature is to allow those dried up leaves to detach and fall as the wind is so perfectly designed to assist in it’s shedding process. Nature is so perfect. The weather, the magnetic pulls, the birds that fly onto it’s branches to excite those leaves and help them along their shedding process. Nature supports the death process just as it support the re-birth process. Dead leaves are a sign of transition, new life is about to take place. How possible could it...

How Healing Are You To Be Around? For the longest time I did not want to “label” myself as a healer.  I felt that by singling myself out as a healer, that would make others not feel as though they were healers, as I believe we all are healers. However, my clients reassured me that the healing they encounter happens because I am able to "guide and instruct" them on their healing journey. This makes their experience more efficient. They are able to shift in ways they may not have if I had not been guiding. A TRUTH: The more I clear my own self-doubt, fears, judgements and INCREASE self-love, acceptance, appreciation and inner peace, the more powerfully I am able to facilitate healing experiences. This past year and a half has been a year of major shifting in my life, where I have spent the most...

Do you ever find yourself in a situation where you feel weighed down or stuck without any way out? Too often we become attached to people, places or things and have a hard time letting go. Sometimes we hold on even if we are no longer growing or feeling uplifted. Predictability makes us feel more calm and safe, however, nothing is really ever edged in stone.  We never really know what is going to happen in the future, we only know the NOW...
