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?

My head and heart have been filled with so many things. Shadows and glimmers of light, blooming into stories. There is something in the air that hints at change. I see it outwardly… a big move coming, and a chance to see my life from a different vantage point. It is empowering to take a step forward into the unknown, and closer to the life that feels congruent with my spirit.
In some ways I feel like I am finally learning to dance, and yet I am still learning from my own inner monsters… but isn’t that the journey we are all on? For now I see a few things clearly. The moment to moment just makes sense, as long as I don’t think too much about it. “Just be”, That’s what I hear in my heart.
Here is to new life, and new adventures. I am opening myself up to the good things. I am taking time to let myself be with love, and light. To be with my dreams, and my goals. I know there is a lot of magic still to be found.
Now that all these changes are happening I have to honor when I can and cant do things. I need to honor when there is no need to write, and jump at the chance to explore a new idea. It doesn’t always make sense on the outside. But life isn’t about making sense to the outside world… it’s about making sense to yourself.
My prayer is that I can learn to dance, to move and grind with all the things that live inside, and all the things that the Universe is sending my way. The more open, the more humble, and the more grateful I am the more magic I seem to find. I guess that is grace. I affirm grace in this moment, in each moment.
Take a moment to feel the grace inside of you. Take a moment to affirm grace. Be beautiful, and be brace. Most of all spread your love to the world… there is so much need for this right now. It is so easy to forget that!
Sending love to all the Gypsies out there.
The Wolf Moon in Cancer January 5,6,7 2015
The Full Moon in January is called, The Wolf Moon. This full moon is in Cancer, which allows us to access our thoughts and emotions, and to channel this keen sensitivity into knowledge and insight. This is especially beneficial with relationships, and connections to key people in your life.
As the Wolf Moon is regarded as the time of letting go of the old, and embracing the new make some symbolic gestures of cleansing dust from the last year, and welcoming the blessing of this year in your life. This is also a powerful time to bless your home.
Do this by thoroughly cleaning your home. Washing the floors, walls and windows. Dust all the areas of the room, especially the hidden nooks and crannies. Get ride of things you no longer use. Donate or give them away.
Burn sage, fresh white candles, and place a bowl of sea salt in each room to absorb stray energy. Purchase a bouquet of desirable flowers and place them in the entrance of your home as a token of new life, success and vitality flowing into your home.
This is a good time to purchase something new for yourself as well! A nice picture, mirror or lamp. Something that adds to the atmosphere of your home.
The intense energy circulating around right now may be a bit overwhelming, but stay grounded and intentional with your efforts. Let go of the past year, and ground yourself in your 2015 goals.
To honor the Wolf Moon you can also take a moment of solitude. Light a white, or violet candle to honor the energies of the moon. Sit in meditation, and let it’s flame lull you into the in-between. You may light incense to set the moon, musk is an appropriate scent for this time. Focus on all the things you are releasing, and ask blessings for the New energy that is coming into you life.
Be particularly aware of any insight you are receiving at this time as your intuition is extra charged with the Full Moon, and the energy of Cancer. Take note of anything that comes to you… especially in dreams.
Be good to yourself!

The Winter Solstice is the return of the Sun. This is a time to honor the graceful flow of age, and death. And to welcome the light back into our lives. As you release the old… as we did in October, you begin to make space and call in energy for new projects, new life, and good feelings.
Allow yourself time to honor the new light that is coming in. Honor yourself because you are the light of your own life. This is a powerful preparation for the New Year, and will empower the goals and aspirations that you set as we move into the coming year.
A Ceremony for Winter Solstice:
In a darkened room at Midnight gather together a tray with a symbol of light such as a fresh white candle, a token of property like a crystal, or gold coin, and a warm cup of ginger, cinnamon or spiced tea.
Create your sacred space by closing all doors, and windows, and sending any disturbances away. Set your items in the center of the room. When you are ready begin to drift into a meditate state. Breathing deeply. Swaying slowly.
Contemplate on the darkness of your own life. The fertile darkness. The uncomfortable darkness. The friendly darkness. The safe darkness. The confusing darkness. Take in all the feelings that surround the dark.
Push through those feelings. Release them into the night.
Begin to imagine a spark of light tin the center of your mind. A gentle, little spark. Like a star. Let that spark grow, and grow, and grow… until it becomes a ray. Until it becomes like the sun, and you are filled with light.
What does the light mean to you?
Now light the candle, or lantern. Speak to the flam. Rejoice in it. Give it thanks. Ask for it to shine throughout your life.
Take the token of prosperity in your hand, and hold it close to your heart. Muster feelings of gratitude and prosperity. Say a prayer of thanks for all the things that you’ve been given throughout the year. And say goodbye to the things that no longer serve you. Let the good move in. Create energetic space for your blessings.
Be with this feeling for a while. This is a talisman of prosperity. Keep it with you, or in your home.
When you’ve basked in feelings of gratitude and abundance shift your focus to what is next. Sip your tea. Take in its sweet and spicy taste. Let it fill your mouth, your head and your body. Let it move through you. Warming and reminding you of all the wonders that the light holds.
Send feelings of wonder and excitement into the future. This good energy will be waiting for you in the New Year.
Talk out loud to the Universe. Speak all the things you want to bring into your life in the New Year. Speak all the things you want to experience, change and feel. Be as honest, open and sincere as you can. Feel as if these things are already real.
Bask in this feeling.
When you are finished with your tea, and you have taken in all the energy of the light… give one last thank you.
Let the light burn out.
Keep your talisman of luck with you somewhere close… sleep with it under your pillow tonight.
The light is in your life. Honor it.
