Fire has a magical intensity that is unexplainable. We are fascinated by the glow of a candle, the crackling of a campfire or a distant star burning brightly in the sky. Candle gazing can lull you into a trance. The … Continue reading

And the days go by like a strand in the wind… in the web that is my own… I begin again. –Stevie Nicks
My head and hands hum with energy. I can feel the raw power of my inner self building, and pushing to the surface. Sometimes I stomp, twirl and sing as loud as I can to release this passion. Self-expression is the path to spiritual empowerment.
Every moment is a chance to begin again. Opportunities slip in and out of our lives. Sometimes we will grab them by the horns and other times we are completely blind-sided. Yet, there is always another moment to be free, to be brave, to be wild.
Have you ever felt the call of your own raw passion?
Or the intense energy of your own creative expression trying to break free?
Of course you have… we all experience this. This is our true self. The self that seeks to be heard, felt and given life.
When you sit at your desk, antsy for something bigger, and bolder you are feeling your spirit. When you walk down the street with a deep longing for something exciting and new you are feeling your spirit. And when you actually fall curious to your own longing you go into a deep communion with the Universe.
Creative expression is act of prayer.
Pray out loud. Pray with your words. Pray with your voice. Pray with your body. Pray with your colors. Pray with your actions.
I want you to know that you are always being born again to the moment.
Do you dare to be transformed into something bigger, bolder and free?
Today make ONE RADICAL Gesture OF SELF-EXPESSION!
What does that mean?
Radical gestures of self-expression are those unadulterated moments of doing something for the hell of it. Doing something because you want to. Not because someone else told you to. Radical gestures of self-expression are those moments where you dance, and sing like no one is watching. Put on a show for the world just to say you did.
Go out into the WORLD, baby, and do the damn thing!
Promise me you will do one thing that feels a little dangerous, a little wild, that takes you out of your BOX.
Let that fire, energy, and life surge through you. Get a taste of your DIVINITY and see what comes next.
I want to hear about it. Leave me a comment, or send me a message.
Want to make big changes in your life?

Your energetic story is the narrative of your life. It is the accumulation of your thoughts, ideas, beliefs, and fears about how you fit into the world, and how the world responds to you.
In the fast paced world that we live in it is easy to become overwhelmed, disconnected and completely out of touch. As the chasm between our inner and outer world grows wider, and deeper feelings of unhappiness, chaos and disenchantment become all pervasive.
You do not have to fall victim to this “forgetting”. The present moment always offers you a place of power to transform your life.
In an energy clearing and intention setting session we will pinpoint these places of resistance, pain and inflexibility. You will find what blocks of energy exist, and why. From there we will work together to move, transform and shift this energy to reflect your true intention, you authentic self!
You will begin with these key questions: What is feeding my spirit? What is depleting my spirit?
From there we will look at what really makes your heart sing. What you really want in your life. This will give us a platform, a springboard to jump from. We will find your flow, your unique rhyme with the Universe. You will jump into infinity, spiral out into the vast sea of the creative unknown. And you will begin to feed your spirit, rather than your fear.
Sessions are done in-person, or via long distance. Wherever you are in the world Shaheen can work with you!

I always find myself needing to shake off the heavy, woolen feelings that linger past winter. There’s a call that bacons me to awaken the inner gypsy that has been half asleep through the colder months. When the spring blows in it brings knew life. It fills the air with a magical energy that surrounds everything in a radiant aura. Tap into this powerful energy!
Awaken yourself with a spring cleansing ritual. Or as I like to call it… a spiritual personal day!
It’s always essential to your spiritual wellbeing to keep your aura filled with beautiful energy, and the energy of spring brings about a special change. This energy allows you to get in-touch with your true self, to become more authentically connected to spirit and to consciously manifest.
To awaken the inner gypsy and to connect with your authentic self make a day of celebrating you! This day can be filled with whatever you want. There’s no right or wrong! As long as it makes you feel good.
Here are some suggestions:
Plan your day ahead of time. The night before enjoy a nice cup of warm tea before bed. Say a prayer/blessing and let the Universe know that you are taking a sacred day to connect with yourself. Let yourself sleep in. Wake up naturally, and take note of any dreams you have.
Take a long walk in a park, or out in nature. Find a place with privacy among the trees and sunshine. Meditate for a few minutes on your inner light. Let the Goddess speak to you. What comes to the surface? Are there any “truths” that you have been avoiding in your life? Let these pearls of wisdom settle into your core.
Write a prayer or affirmation to help you connect with yourself. For example:
“Let my inner light shine through allowing wisdom to bubble to the surface.
Let the worn out masks of my identity fall away.
Let me become more congruent with my truest self self.
Let my gypsy soul immerge so that I can walk authentically in my life.”
Pick a spiritual cleansing method that resonates with you. I always enjoy cleansing baths because they are relaxing, and healing. Taking a spiritual cleansing bath becomes a little respite from everything else.
For this particular day a Rosewater Bath would be suitable. Rosewater has a delicate and gentle magic. It envelops the aura making it radiant and smooth. It makes the aura magnetic, charging it with positive energy and peace. Use pure Rosewater hydrosol in a bath, adding a cup to warm water.
Do any other activities that make you feel authentic, grounded and whole. This might be a good day to have your favorite meal, go to your favorite place, or read a favorite book. You may even want to spend some time with an old friend.
Let the spring fill you up! This is a time to remember the parts of you that have been buried all winter, and to honor those beautiful jewels. Giving yourself a personal day is a spiritual gesture that helps you gain momentum.
It allows you to realign yourself with the Universe, and that’s the ultimate form of spiritual cleansing.

I have been contemplating this idea of self-love more. It’s so simple, and yet so hard to attain. Really being able to look yourself in the eye, and say… I love you. I love you, your flaws, your perfections, your failures, and your victories. It can be so difficult to really see yourself in all those phases, and still really appreciate who, and what you are.
I know I struggle with this. I know you struggle with it. We all do. It’s something that we feel at one time or another. Some of us daily. Some of us feel the struggle of self-love in waves. There are things that help make self-love easier, and other things will spiral it out of control and turn all our pain into very real monsters.
Here are 5 keys to help you on your journey to connecting and honoring yourself more!
Key Number One: Stay Committed to Yourself.
Regardless of how low you feel, or how lost you may seem; your commitment to yourself will be the lantern in the darkness. The simple willingness to uphold yourself, to listen to yourself, to do what is best for yourself… will put you in the right situations!
It isn’t always easy to stay committed to yourself. Sometimes you will let down your guard, casting yourself into something that you know wont make you feel better. But you have to try don’t you? Because you are brave and strong… and that’s how you learn!
Just stay strong! Hang on with all your might.
Key Number Two: Allow Yourself to Be Dark
The darkness is part of you. Don’t hide from your shadow, don’t run from it, and don’t be afraid of it. It isn’t your enemy. It is your friend. Your shadow allows you to learn so much about who you are, what you’re made of and how much you can, and will take!
Whenever you feel dark, just dance! Dance to whatever rhythm you feel. Whatever song you hear playing. Just close your eyes and let go to the beat of it all!
That is one of the best ways to learn to love yourself. If you trust yourself to dance you will feel sexier, stronger, more vibrant. You will seduce the dark!
Key Number Three: Learn to Say No
If you don’t like it… don’t do it! Do not feel responsible for anyone else if it isn’t for your best wellbeing. We spend so much time saying yes to things that we don’t really want to do. We feel guilted into living life a certain way.
I always ask myself: does this feed my spirit, or does it defeat my spirit?
If it doesn’t feed your spirit then you should just move on to the next thing! Don’t get stuck in the mindset that if you say no, you will miss out on something. You don’t miss out on opportunities that are good for you, by saying no to things that feel wrong.
In this big, beautiful Universe… all you have to do to get what you want and need is be you, love you, and smile!
Key Number Four: Daily Life Can Be Exciting
Every single day can be awesome. It can be filled with great things. Don’t wait your whole life for the right person, the right place, the right time… do it now. Live it now. Don’t only do what you love when everything else is “taken care of”. Don’t live your life for vacation, retirement, or the weekends.
This moment right now is perfect! You are beautiful enough to shine right now. So go out there and say what you need to say. Start planting the seeds of your dreams. And water them with lots of love. Because the truth is… you have time to love yourself!
Each moment you spend on anything… you should first take a second to love yourself. It’s easy to forget. But it’s a powerful affirmation, and catalyst of change.
Key Number Five: Self-Love is Self-Healing
You may not always feel strong. You may feel like you are losing a battle with something… it creeps into us now and again! You may not have the energy to do what you want, or what you need. But find just a little, tiny space to be good to yourself.
Because when you are good to yourself… you will also begin to heal yourself. You will heal yourself of all the pain, the upset, the damage, the loss… all the things that make you feel fragmented will begin to heal.
Some things will take longer than others. But it is all rooted in your belief. And your commitment to yourself… remember that!

Love is something that comes up so often in my sessions, and even in my personal life with friends and family. There is this constant conversation happening among people about how to love, when to love, where to find love, how to keep love, and on and on it goes. It’s all pretty power, pretty beautiful, and some times heavy!
Something that is usually left out of the conversation is self-love. I know… crazy right! We want love from other people, we want to give love to other people… but we struggle to love ourselves. But when you begin to look at self-love, you will find a pivotal point of power.
What does that mean?
Well, when you want something in your life (like love, acceptance and romance) you have to also practice those things. And the best way to do that is to cultivate a space in your own life for you to give to yourself.
You see, self-love is not selfish it is actually the opposite. When you practice self-love you are filling yourself up with vibrant, beautiful energy, and you are planting a seed of intention, to not only give love, but to receive love, to feel love, and to live in love. That seed of intention will take root, sprout and blossom into the world, creating a powerful space for you to share the sweet nectar of love with others.
Isn’t it amazing how simple that is? By loving yourself, you begin to thrive… growing into an empowered person. Growing into an authentic person. And by simply being you, in a state of love (our natural state), you can give unconditional love to everyone else.
Because without self-love you have no acceptance, and without acceptance of yourself you begin to have limits, and with limits comes your personal edge… and that edge will be tested so many times by people and situations in your life. If you make self-love one of your truths, then nothing can shake you when your edge creeps up to challenge you!
Here are a few affirmative questions to ask yourself throughout the month!
It would be powerful to journal with these questions, or create affirmations from them.
- What self-loving act do you do every day?
- Stand in front of the mirror. What do you love most about your face? Name as many as you wish.
