Coming back to life.


So, I've spent the last several days in bed. Like, literally. My body is in agony, and a lit up Vagus Nerve has been keeping me up at night, literally feeling like someone has plugged it into an electric socket. I'm lethargic, tired, hungry, and se...

Today is a Full Moon in Pisces, the astrological energy that holds influence over the darkest, deepest depths of our psyche and energy body. Today’s Full Moon gives us an incredible opportunity to tap into the “yin” we so often neglect: the signs, serendipities and mes...

I used to think crystals were bullsh*t. I really did, even after I had attended shaman school. I really don’t “believe” in something unless I’ve personally experienced the phenomenon, which I'm realizing is a rare attribute in my industry. That said, one day I picked u...

I needed magic.


I work to cultivate gratitude on a daily basis, fighting my overactive "monkey brain" to try to stay present and satisfied with what I do have. But even the most practiced of us have our "blah" and "meh" moments, feeling the cumulative strain of fear, i...

Creating a new ritual.


Many of you may not know this, but several years ago I had a series of Transient Ischemic Attacks (TIAs), otherwise referred to as "mini strokes". I was blind in my right eye for a few days, but a series of very expensive MRI's didn't show any cl...

Earlier this week, I had a particularly strange day. The number sequences (1111, 333 and 444) were popping off left, right and center, and there were strange symbols and moments of serendipity that got my attention. Then, when driving home, we noticed a unique 4x4 van...

I will not cancel you.

In the last few weeks, several clients and collaborators have thanked me for not "canceling" them when expressing perfectly benign personal opinions. Some have apologized to me for innocuous comments regarding current events, trending news items,...
