Over the last 4 years I have experienced some of the biggest, bad ass and yet most bountiful shifts in my life. I left a marriage… and found my self. I lost close friends…. and opened to new family. I dumped definitions…. and fell in love with my no labels no veils sublimely naked spirit. And in the end I came home… to me. Through this experience of floating in a sea of change (learning to not attempt to swim upstream against the current of the cosmos), one of the biggest personal challenges for me had been the shifting of friendships. We’ve all been taught that love comes and goes, with lovers making grand entrances through the front door and slipping out or being kindly asked to exit through the side. Yet, somehow (even though most of us haven’t spoken to our high school “posse” for years and that the once closest confidente may no longer be listed in our email contacts) still find themselves with the belief that relationships of friendships are our entitlement… that they should last and if they don’t the disappointment can be more overwhelming than a lost lover. Hmm… interesting isn’t it? When a friendship is in fact another form of relationship. That a friendship is still an engagement of sharing, receiving and inspiring through interaction, just like with a partner, and just like a relationship, it is important for us to be able to stand strong without it and never need it, yet always appreciate, nourish, and cherish it while we have it. And… Just like with partners, friendships can shift. They may change from (what seems to be) negative and confusing situations or simply a drifting apart. In [...]
Today my Inner Spirit is shouting “Thanks for Tuning in!”. I am grateful for my intuition and the ability to tune the dial on my mind chatter down and stream live cosmic bliss from every dimension!” Oh… the exercises of simple experiencing and gratitude. As cheesy, overdone and cliche as it may sound there is something to be said about retraining the system to look at the wondrous (and often very simple) things that bring us an exquisite sense of inner peace. I’m curious to know… right now as you read this blog, what in your life makes your heart heat up and mouth take on that gorgeous upward curve of a smile? What is making your soul sing…? What brings you a sense of “ahhhhh…….” It’s not a big task, yet it can change a mood shifting out the clouds and inviting in an internal fiery sun to host you through your day. So, let me ask again… what is bringing you joy in this moment?

It’s a beautiful morning…. the sun is shining, my body is glowing and my Inner Divine She is smiling in every dimension. It’s amazing what crazy, wild, kinky sex can do for you. (Is that a blush? I just said sex… yes, that’s right “Sex…” let me try one more time “SEX! OH YES…. SEX!” lol…) Why is it that this luscious aspect of human nature (and I should add in Spiritual experience) can make the most confident woman blush and even some turn away attempting to distract themselves with the closest thing at hand? Whatever your particular fetish is, or formula for ecstasy (men + woman, woman + woman, woman + woman + man, man + man, simply large groups…) sex is a wondrous experience that both frees you into a naturally body rippling, sensation spinning and cosmic connecting high while also encouraging you to savor and relish this human experience and form. It’s a gift, and it’s one we can claim with pride, power and passion. On my personal journey to spiritual full awakening and ecstatic self love, I have met myself in various formats along the way, I have realized my inner deep desires, fetishes, kinks, naughty thoughts (that are naughty no more… it’s all how you look at it) and have finally (somewhat gracefully) swan dived into the darkest recesses of my mind where I had hidden what I thought was the “unacceptable” pieces of my sexual nature. What I discovered was that these little pieces I had put in the shadows and labeled as “bad girl”, were actually delectably divine. By pulling them out into the light and looking closer I learned so much more about who I am, where [...]
It’s a full moon ladies! and a superior time to embrace the idea that you, sensational Goddess, can can create your life, rid yourself of blocks and manifest a life you love. Yes… it’s time to bring that feminine mojo to the table and set yourself free to be and achieve in the coming cycle. Since the moon shone down on our ancient Mamas, Sisters and Friends it has lent itself to a sublime cycle of Feminine Magick, gifting us with its radiant energy as a guideline (and spirit booster) for flowing through this earthly existence. As a New Moon lends its magick to creating new projects, starting new endeavors and bringing in new energies, the full moon is all about release, clearing and opening to what that big delicious diva destiny may display on your path next, or… to what consciously manifested goals your Divine Inner Goddess in partnership with your conscious mind would like to birth in to your life. A full moon is an ideal point to let go of the fears, which have hitched a ride in your psyche. To say “no more!” to those negative thoughts which have implanted into our mind, causing our thoughts to do more back flips than a performance of cirque du soleil. And to bid “adieu” to those hindering habits which hold up big stop signs on our path forward, causing detours, bumps in the road and sometimes a full turnaround. This Silver Lunar phase is also a boosted time for protection rituals, divination, planning and beginning intention setting. Now, to the yummy bits, A Ritual For You… how do you apply this in your life? Although I am a confessed lover of ritual, it [...]
“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”Anais Nin I woke up today to the nudging of my inner self. “Wake up” she called to me… pulling me from between the sheets, forcing me to extract myself from the warmth radiating off my love next to me.
It’s too early, I said to myself this morning as I partially crawled out of bed. Yet my inner self and energy were already bounding down the hall ahead of me. <?nbsp> Instead of going right for the coffee maker I found myself standing in front of my laptop positioned near the yogamats. This is not something new for me, I do actually enjoy yoga and pilates in the morning, but I realized that there are a lot of women out there who would find themselves staring blankly at the mat with no idea of what to do… and would give up before they started. <?nbsp> Not today ladies! I have a gem of a resource, I want to share that I just recently discovered: YogaYak: http://bestfreeyoga.com This is a website that has incredible full yoga classes for FREE! (I couldn’t believe it either). <?nbsp> And best of all, you can do it from home at any time of day. (No worries, morning yoga is not for everyone! My favourite is actually into the deep night). <?nbsp> Be sure to check out Dagmar Spremburg. She is incredible. So later today, when you find yourself craving a bit of movement, but your mind is reaching for the excuses… “I don’t want to go to the gym… I don’t know what to do…” reach instead for your laptop, PC, Ipad (or any other internet device) and enjoy that sensation that comes with freeing the body and relaxing the mind.
Just a quick note to congratulate the winner of the “Where in the World…” contest: Hannah G! *clap clap clap!* Thanks to all of you who participated, I can’t wait to see what you manifest using Armand’s incredible Guided Yoga Nidra.
