Join me for a #21DaystoRecalibrate Challenge

Wow, does anyone else feel like their feet have been swept under them last month? From what I’ve gathered, this feeling of not being grounded and unsettled is a common theme for many. It seems summer was challenging, with big changes in living arrangements, relationships, work and health. Big explosions have (and are) happening on the planet in the natural...

ART OF CRYING

Art of Crying

Learning How to Cry Breakdown time. Have you ever had a time in your life where all the energy of trying to hold things together finally falls apart?

Inner Harvest

When my world gets spun around like this,...

However, have you noticed yourself or others saying, “Wow, time is flying by! Or “it’s already November?” Our concept of time is fascinating. Sometimes, it seems to fly by, and at others, drag on. At times we wish for time to stand still, and at others,...
