Feeling Sassy

35-IMG_5343

“Spring is a time to find out where you are, who you are, and move toward where you are going.”

~Penelope Trunk


Finally…the sun is out and the weather is starting to warm up. With spring finally arriving, I’ve been feeling inspired to swap out my closet. The gift of living in an old building….

I have limited closet space.

As a result, only 2 seasons of clothes can fit into my closet at any given time. So my closet either contains Fall/Winter or Spring/Summer clothes. Twice a year I have the opportunity to review my clothes and determine what stays and what goes. As I started to pull out some of my Spring/Summer clothes, I realized that the clothes physically fit me (thank goodness) but the clothes really don’t fit who I am becoming. Looking back over the last year, I realize that last Spring/Summer was a time of transition for me and as a result I purchased a lot of t-shirts (as I was in an in-between space). Now I’m ready for a new look. And before I start randomly purchasing new clothes, I always ask myself…

How do I want to feel?

As I reflected on this question, I asked a friend of mine, earlier in the week, how she wants to feel this Spring/Summer. Her response…”sassy”. I was rather intrigued with the response so I asked her what does “sassy” look like? She showed me a picture of an awesome new hair style she was contemplating getting. When I asked about the “sassy” clothes to go with the new hair style, she started telling me an old story of how she can’t find anything around “here” and so she will have to settle for non-sassy clothes. When I told her to shop on-line, the old story shifted to “I can’t afford a new wardrobe”. I told her ‘I’m not asking you to invest in a totally new wardrobe. I’m asking what piece will you purchase that will make you feel “sassy”. Is it a pair of shoes, a purse, a scarf, a jacket, new glasses, etc. One piece can shift your entire wardrobe and your attitude so that you feel “sassy”.

Today I saw my friend and she was wearing a new scarf in her hair. It was exciting to see her becoming creative with her existing wardrobe and playing with what it feels like to be “sassy”.

Spring cleaning isn’t just about sorting through things, and getting rid of clutter. It’s about taking stock of who you are and who you want to be. It’s a chance to redefine yourself, to change expectations, and to remember that it’s never too late to discover who you want to be.
So as you take stock of your Spring/Summer wardrobe, notice what clothes no longer fit you emotionally. This is a sign that you are shifting and changing and that is a good thing! As you start to redefine yourself for the Spring/Summer season….

What old stories come up for you?
How can you shift the stories, move forward, and feel empowered?


Are you ready to take stock of who you are and express yourself in a new way?

If so, please join me at the upcoming workshop on Saturday May 5th…

Finding The Gift

35-IMG_5343

“When we are no longer able to change the situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.”

~Vikter E. Frank


How have you been responding to the weather this week? I don’t know about you, but by Wednesday I was angry. Between the cold weather, rain, sleet, and snow, I was frustrated and angry. Angry that spring is taking too long to arrive. Angry that I couldn’t go for a walk outside. Angry that I couldn’t sit on the deck. Angry that I couldn’t use a charcoal grill unless I wanted to stand in the cold blistering sleet.
With all of this anger bottled up inside of me, I realized that the weather was just a symptom of something else that was bothering me. So I decided to take a step back and 1-Define the problem and 2- Define the cause of the problem.

So why am I having this problem?

So why is the weather bothering me so much this week? To be honest with you. tt was one more thing that had disrupted my plans for the past several weeks. Between a mix of work disruptions, building disruptions, and personal disruptions, the weather disruption was the final straw. With all of these unplanned disruptions, my life felt like it was starting to spin out of control. Even within the past two weeks, my countertops in my kitchen were reflecting back to me the chaos of trying to micromanage and control every moment of my life. Piles of papers and books everywhere…augh!!!!

What caused this problem?

As I pulled back the layers of this onion, I realized that the root cause was impatience. Patience has never been one of my virtues in life. I’ve come along way with learning patience, however the weather this week stirred up my impatience for not being able to control the speed at which things progress. And when all of the unplanned events got in the way of my agenda, I would get angry. Whether I like it or not, I can’t push, pull, and force outcomes based on my own predetermined schedule.

So what is the gift in this situation?

Once I took a step back and detached, I realized that I was over reacting and thinking that all of these disruptions were happening to me. And there lays the gift….

All of these disruptions where happening for me and not to me!

The bad weather this week forced me to slow down and be still. In the forced stillness, I sat and looked at my calendar and realized that I was over-committing to projects and activities that I didn’t really want to be involved in. In hindsight, I was reverting back to being a people pleaser and putting everyone else’s needs before my own and it was making me angry. So, I pulled out my calendar and evaluated my list of to-do’s and determine what my summer schedule was going to look like based on my needs. And what are my needs…

Time for more spontaneity! Time for more fun! Time for more adventures!

How fitting that this came up for me…just in time for the next workshop where we learn that rest, spontaneity and play are a regular part of a healthy life.

What does your calendar look like these days?

Do you have time for unplanned spur of the moment adventures?

A Little Known Fact About Me

35-IMG_5343

“You can set all of the intentions that you like (new job, new life, new relationship, etc.). However, if you don’t take action, you will just be spinning your tires. The power lies in walking with intention.”

~Robin Rosenstiel


A little know fact about me: when I went through Shamanic training in 2009-2011, I was initially terrified of working with the Chakras. I was terrified that the chakras would tell me something that I didn’t want to hear. Like…

  • You can’t do this.
  • This is a waste of time.
  • People will think you are a witch.

In hindsight, I realized that these old stories, that I was telling myself, were preventing me from moving forward with following my dream of creating a life on my own terms. In reality, we all work with our Chakra’s daily whether we realize it or not.

How does this show up in my life?

If I don’t move forward and take action on a regular basis towards my dreams, my left hip starts to bother me. From personal experience I can tell you that I can stretch it all I want, however the pain will not go away until I take action towards building my business. My body is basically yelling at me and telling me….

I’m doing a lot of thinking about what I want, but I’m not taking any action!

And this body message is a classic Root Chakra imbalance message. So if you are interested in discovering more about yourself and the Root Chakra, join me on Saturday for the…

Chakra Totem Awakening – Root Chakra Workshop

We will explore:

  • Your foundation mindset (your body, home, finances, work, and environment) and the stories that are getting in the way of your joy. You will come away with a new narrative – one that feels authentic and also empowers and serves you as you create the life you desire.
  • Decoding our body messages: Our bodies communicate with us daily and tell us what is out of balance. Learn to tune in and hear the body messages of the Root Chakra.
  • Feng shui-ing your house and your office space: Your space is a metaphor of your life. Learn how to detox your space and create space that is supportive and nourishing.
  • How to bring more joy to the process: Discover your Spirit Animal of the Root Chakra and how this Spirit Animal can assist you.
  • How to be compassionate with yourself though the ups and downs – from healing practices to affirmations.
  • How to raise your vibe so that you are embodying the feelings of being grounded, safe, and loved, right now.

Learn more details about the series.
