It's hard to imagine that in today's world there so much conflict and suffering.
That there are wars that take precious and pure lives in the name of hate and greed.
Why hasn't man evolved?
Why do we continue to create war when it is obvious and evident that war never ever brings the justice and peace, we all yearn for?
Isn't that what we yearn for?
Why are we still fighting over that which is not ours to begin with, for all we have is borrowed and all will be returned to the great Mother as we transition to the next phase of our journey?
Our minds build walls around our hearts and have forgotten that we are all linked in our cosmic and universal journeys.
As I see unimaginable images of babies burned alive and innocent people crying over what is lost, it feels like a dream as I sit here at my desk, in my home, and thousands of miles...
Hello holistic warrior,
She poured the milk in a plastic sippy cup and put it into the microwave.
Then she pressed the 30 second button.
The little girl was so excited about her "milky" that she began a loud shrieking sound and was pulling on her mom's shirt.
"She sure loves milk!" the mom smiled and said as she pulled the sippy cup out of the microwave and handed it to her daughter.
The little girl ripped it from her hand and went running back to play with the other kids.
At first, I found myself judging.
This was over 6 years ago, and that part of my journey included a lot of judgement for moms and families that continued the path of mainstream.
How could she give her that? I thought to myself.
I had already learned to hate conventional milk, plastic, and microwaves, and this experience put them all together for me.
Watching the little girl drink from that sippy cup made my stomach...
I hope this email finds you so well. Listen to this email here!
Today marks the first day back to school for our family.
As I sit at my desk it is quiet and I am so grateful for undisrupted time to write to you, create, and to take care of all the things we do as moms.
I had a huge realization recently and thought I would share it with you.
It was about a week ago, it was getting late, and I was exhausted.
It had been a long mom kind of day.
I had been up super early that morning to make time to hike, grocery shop, and meditate all before the boys woke up.
They have been sleeping in all summer long, and the mornings were prime time to take care of myself.
On this particular evening all I could think about was getting into my comfy bed and closing my eyes.
I noticed myself longing for the quiet and calm that comes with everyone in their beds and fast...
My beautiful friend,
It's been a transformational time for me and I'm wondering if you too have noticed big shifts happening in your life, or those around you?
Episode 143 on the Hippie Moms Podcast talks all about How Transformation Looks...Caterpillar Soup and may support you as you too journey into uncharted territory.
I have been in contact with so many of my dear friends and family who are all transforming big time.
In some way it makes what I'm moving through a little bit easier because I know I'm not alone and I want you to know that you are not alone.
We can analyze why all these things are happening and fixate on what it all means, but if we take a simpler and less stressful way to view it is that it's all part of the divine plan.
Things always move and unfold for us as the desires of the heart are heard by a larger intelligence.
Things must move to make space for what...
In late November of 2022, I took all social media apps off my phone.
Immediately after I removed them, I would find myself grabbing my phone scrolling the screen twice to the right, where I had placed the apps.
With the intention to limit my social media and phone use, I had moved the apps thinking that this was going to help me use them less, but that wasn't the case at all.
At one time, I even had placed them in a folder where it took more effort to find them, and that didn't work either.
I knew it was time to take them off altogether.
It was profound.
I witnessed myself constantly picking up the phone and moving my hand in such a way to get to the apps, just like a robot.
It took maybe a week or two for this habit to disappear.
At first, I was quite perplexed as I consider myself pretty "aware".
I knew that I had taken the apps off my phone,...
Hello my friend,
Years ago I was standing in line at the Starbuck's located just outside of my office building.
I would go everyday and get my Mocha Frappuccino and cranberry scone.
The line was long and extended outside the front door, but I didn't mind.
The longer I could stay away from my desk, the better.
I was enjoying the early morning sunshine on my skin.
It was a beautiful day in March, I could smell the orange blossoms in the air and for a moment life was tolerable.
I heard a loud rumble and looked to my left where there was a small parking area for Valet and quick drop-offs.
A bright red Ferrari pulled up.
It looked brand new and was stunning.
I waited to see who was driving it, hoping to see a hot, young, buff guy emerge, but it was a older man who stepped out of the car with his flashy glasses and sparkly watch.
He gently shut the door and scanned to see who was watching him.
I could tell...
Hello fellow human,
I like to think back to when humans lived 10's of thousands of years ago.
LISTEN AS I READ THIS MESSAGE TO YOU WHILE YOU DO WHAT YOU DO
Before the agricultural revolution.
Before we began farming crops and domesticating animals.
The human experience was SO different than today.
Humans lived and survived by hunting and gathering their food, there were no grocery or convenience stores to "grab a quick bite".
Contrary to popular belief, these humans did in fact have gardens, they were small, temporary, and always shifted to minimize impact to the soil.
They wore animal skins on their body and under their feet.
The only light they saw at night was light from the stars, moon, and the fire that kept them warm and the animals distant.
They slept on the earth.
Their bodies were grounded and synced with the cycles of Mother Nature.
They walked on average 9 - 25 miles every day.
The sun warmed their...
My alarm goes off at 5:22 am.
[LISTEN TO THE AUDIO VERSION OF THIS EMAIL]
It gives me just enough time for two 8 minute snoozes, where I slowly wake up to the dark morning.
I need this time to prepare to wake up.
At 5:38 am I get out of bed, I open the doors to let the cool morning air in, I go to the bathroom, put on my warm robe, grab my headphones, and light a candle.
I love the way the candle lights up the room.
I find one of my favorite meditations or meditative music and I settle on my bed with a straight back supported by my soft headboard and extend my legs.
I feel my body.
"Good morning, body." I say to myself.
I check into the universe that carries me everyday.
It's the first thing I do.
I notice any tension, tightness, and breathe deeply into the nook and crannies that store all my shit.
I take somewhere between 8-10 deep deep breaths before I settle in.
I always feel my shoulders and belly relax. ...
Happy 2022 my friends! I'm not sure about you, but in the past, I would always get disappointed around the holidays.
I have huge expectations and the season never ever lives up to them.
This year, I took a whole new approach and just reminded myself when I was attaching to some sort of outcome I could never control and to just breathe and be in the moment.
I really focused on accepting what was coming up and just living in that space.. in reality.
Instead of focusing on what I wish was different, I just appreciated the unfolding.
Truthfully, I found myself many times wishing myself out of the experience and wanting to change it... then I would remind myself that that's just a waste of energy and what was happening now is perfect and exactly the way it's meant to be.
How do I know this?
Because that's the reality of it.
Isn't it amazing that we do this in so many aspects of our...
