Transformation Goddess: Top Five Blog Posts of 2016

 

 How to Heal Your Past, Release Shame and Liberate Your Heart

For many years, I’ve been carving out sacred family time to visit my mom and stepfather up in the rolling farmland and sleepy village of Bliss, Michigan. Sweet traditions circle back around each visit including making my great grandmother’s homemade borscht (cold beet soup) recipe, canning sweet pickles, and gathering herbs and vegetables from my mom’s abundant garden. I enjoy several visits to one of my favorite “otherly places” on the shores of Sturgeon Bay. Beach walks, invigorating swims, sunsets, afternoon naps and french pressed coffee make up little pleasures while staying at a private little cottage where my grandmother once lived. But it’s the time with my mom that is the most precious. Read More>>

IMG_0005The gift of energetic cord cutting, grief, and wisdom

In the late summer of 2016, I participated in an energetic cord cutting ceremony and sweat lodge to release old wounds and stories with my dad. At the time, I was being drawn back into some of our old patterns and it was necessary to reset my intention to create healthy boundaries in our newly minted relationship. My teacher and eight more beautiful souls, held sacred space for me as I shared my truth and let go. Today I realize this sacred ceremony was a precious gift from the Divine. Two months later my father passed away.  Read More>>

9 Sacred Ways to Walk in Beauty

When you sit with the definition of the beauty or think about what it means to walk in beauty, what comes up for you?

Ive learned that walking in beauty is creating an intimate relationship with the goodness of all creation. I feel deep gratitude and respect for the Native American people who inspired my deeper curiosity about living in a beauty way.

There are nine elements that contribute to the beauty way: awareness, prayer, stewardship for the Earth, creative expression, sacred living, self-love, community, personal responsibility, and gratitude.

This Sacred Life

The phone rang at exactly 11:11am.

11:11 again. Why did that sequence of numbers always seem to be popping up in front of me?

I almost didn’t pick up the phone. I was deep into budget planning for my sales force and didn’t want to interrupt the painstaking process. On the third or fourth ring, however, I answered the call that would forever change the course of my life.

On the line was John, a charismatic former colleague and masterful negotiator. Without preamble, he offered me a mind-blowing position with a media company in Austin, Texas. The promotion would mean a high-powered management position, a virtually unlimited expense account, and a truly insane salary several times greater than the six figures I was already bringing in. Talk about an ego boost and a fork in my road! Read More >>

Song of The Wild Queen
(Our most popular Guest Post by C. Ara Campbell)

She’’s a wild one with a deep mystery that dances in her eyes.

Her heart can be broken in a million pieces and she looks unshaken and poised on the surface.

Don’’t let her quiet calm fool you; a fire storm rages inside.

There is a passion that burns in the depths of her soul like a thousand fiery suns.

She is not one to be tamed or chained. Her song is one of freedom and her spirit soars along the endless skies.

Yes, she still falls apart. Read More>>
