The Wisdom of Trauma - An Invitation

Several months ago a friend shared a link with me to watch a documentary called The Wisdom of Trauma. When I say that it changed my life - that would be an understatement. It literally ushered in so much healing, self compassion, and awareness - and started me on my path to learn as much as I could about becoming "trauma - informed".

The people who have created this documentary release it for a limited time and then it goes back into the "vault". You have until October 10th to view this for free. If you have experienced trauma (spoiler alert - after this last year I think it is fair to say we have ALL experienced it) please take the time to watch this. It will be an hour well spent. Feel free to forward this email invitation or the actual link to someone who would benefit or gain some resources or validation about their lived experience.

Please feel free to reach out to let me know what you thought about this. Oh! And stay tuned to learning about how Essential Oils and Human Design...

Grieving a Complicated Relationship

I am a little less than a month out from the passing of my biological mom. I am writing this to help with my own processing and if I can help someone along the way who needs these words (which are usually not spoken out loud) or validation - then this will not have been written in vain.

It will be helpful to know that I only lived with my mom for 5 years of my life. From birth to 4 and then from 13 to 14. The rest of that time I only saw her in short bursts. A friend of my mom's sent me this picture shortly after she passed. When I first saw it - I burst into maniacal laughter (which was so like something my mom would do) - it reminded me of a scene in Sweet Home Alabama - "You have a baby - in a bar" only this would read "You have a baby - and a beer". This picture speaks a thousand words. And reinforces an old story I told myself for decades. 

The old story I told myself was that she chose drugs, alcohol, and men over me. I told that story on repeat up until 2 years ago...

An App To Help With Mind, Body, Spirit Connection

 

Oh friends! I'm so excited to share something with you! I was introduced to a new app this weekend by my new friend Kristina - and I had to come and shout its awesomeness from the rooftops! 

Healing Feelings is an app from Karol Truman who wrote the book Feelings Buried Alive Never Die This book was one of my required reading textbooks for my Aromatherapy Certification and has played a HUGE role in my learning, awakening, and awareness of just how intricately the mind, body, spirit connection really is. The first step toward change is awareness and this is a powerful tool that can really be of service to you if you are ready for some healing and transformation. 

Here in the West our modern medical model is built around diagnosing a symptom and then prescribing a drug that will address that symptom. We walk through other parts of our lives like this as well - we don't always have the language to communicate how we really feel - so we mask and numb...

7 WAYS TO MAKE IT THROUGH A BAD DAY

Here are my Confessions of a Worn Out Mommy. I woke up on Mother’s Day with every intention of having a lovely day. With David deployed I knew it wouldn’t be your Hallmark Movie Version of Mother’s Day with breakfast in bed and a day at the spa. However – I was ready for that! I planned ahead and picked up a meal that I would only have to warm up. What I didn’t plan on was washing a package of seaweed in a HUGE load of laundry. True story. Imagine little flecks of wet seaweed everywhere – I was basically a mermaid – which I found funny – at first. My humor quickly slipped away as other unplanned and unexpected things continued to roll in along with the constant fighting that has been happening between my children and I felt myself slipping down into the depths. While I was in the pit I remembered that a pretty huge trauma happened to me on Mother’s Day several years ago (which can happen when your vibration is low – your...

THE BUILDING A HEART CENTERED BRAND

I'd love to share the stories behind the choices of my images and words behind my brand. I have chosen to run my business from a heart centered space. The following will walk you through the process I went in choosing my brand emphasis. My hope is that by sharing my story you will gain clarity around a possible way to build yours.

If you have been in my community for any amount of time you will know how much I LOOOVE Lighthouses, Hearts, and the words: Shine, Light, and of course Wholehearted.

Wholehearted – As you can see…I have it tattooed on my body. LOL. This word and way of living caused such a shift in my soul. I was introduced to Brene Brown by my friend Lindsay Teague Moreno  who is an avid reader. This word is at the center of every one of her writings and it literally made my heart grow two sizes. Here is the definition of Wholehearted Living directly from Brene Brown: “Wholehearted living is about engaging in our lives from a place of...
