The Ever-Breaking Heart

The Ever-Breaking Heart

It’s been months, at least, if not longer since I sat and wrote this. My step-son Erik is facing a divorce, starting with a ‘we should separate’, and by the time you read this, it will be finished. To respect him and his privacy, I’ll wait to share the story. I sit with this bright, motivated, funny, intelligent, insightful 28-year-old

Energy Flows Where Attention Goes

Energy Flows Where Attention Goes

I sit at the table for breakfast on the deck. Coffee – check. Yogurt – check. Berries – check. Yellowjacket – shit, I hate those things! There it is, I swear staring at me, to see if I’ll react. I whisper to it, “Please stay away from me, you know I don’t like you.” Three more of his friends show

Pleasing vs. Proud

Pleasing vs. Proud

She sat with tears in her eyes, across from me on the sofa. In my usual chair, I looked at her in emotion, but it didn’t match. “Four years ago” she began, “I thought everyone who passed me on the street was sad they had to see me. I thought everyone who had to talk to me during any day

Summer. Get it while it’s hot!

Close your eyes…imagine yourself; January, freezing cold, winds howling outside, another vortex coming our way. Makes your spine shiver just thinking about it, doesn’t it?  Now, in that imaginary scene, what do you do to comfort yourself in the throws of winter? We imagine summer! We think of the sun, the heat.  Lots and lots of heat.  As Minnesotan’s we

Until We Meet Again

Until We Meet Again

As the mist cleared, I stepped into the sounds of men shouting, my body being pushed and shoved back and forth, bumping off of one another like pinballs. The noise was deafening, my lack of clear vision intensified the yelling and demands that came from the planks above me. Grunge and sweat were everywhere. I could feel the filth of

A Spirit Called Mystery

A Spirit Called Mystery

“I woke up from a dream,” she said, “and in this dream, this famous female healer looked at me and said, “You are becoming nothing” “. My gut clenched. “Shit,” I thought, “is she telling me I’m in this world to become nothing!?” My dear friend continued, “Yeah, my friends thought it was the greatest thing ever! I totally felt

There is No Such Thing as Free Time

There is No Such Thing as Free Time

I love it when the Spirit interjects a perspective I haven’t considered before into a session. It’s often an “ah-ha!” moment form my client and myself and always leaves me with much to think about. I feel lucky to be delivering this profound wisdom. It went something like this… “No, that’s not what we’re suggesting. Simply that you consider your

Finding a Piece of Myself: Growing as an Introvert

Finding a Piece of Myself-Growing as an Introvert

Many of you will laugh when I say this, but I am an introvert.  Like pretty heavy.  Seriously. Most people watch me and think I am a total “people person”, which is how we usually term extroverted people. I’m chatty, laugh, engage in conversation, and all of the stuff my Mother taught me to be (who honestly expected me to

Healing Through Generations

Healing Through Generations

There is a saying that goes, “daughters come here to heal the sins of their mothers”. Now, let me be clear – this does not mean all of our mothers are some weird sinners. The deeper message is that as daughters, we tend to face a place at some point in our lives, where we have to take a look

Honoring the Sacred Masculine

Welcome to Summer! Here in the Midwest we’re finally breaking out of the weight of winter. Not kidding, there were many places in Minnesota that have had snow fall in the last couple weeks. Its been crazy. Yard work, everywhere is in full swing. The BBQ’s are breaking out, and the boats are hitting the lakes in high fashion.  I
