Be the Rainbow

Hey Friends! There’s a great song called, “Sum of Our Parts” by Mary Lambert that I’ve recently fallen in love with. (You can listen to it here.) The melody is great and she has a beautiful voice but more than that, the lyrics of the song are powerful. The song speaks to the truth that we are more than the sum of our parts. …

“Muscle up, buttercup!”

Hi Friends, My husband, Mark, and I were out for coffee this past weekend with our three year old son, Odyn. Through the course of our conversation Mark shared with me an inspirational idea that he has been wanting to explore but felt that his fear has been holding him back.

It’s a time to take stock and reflect on our lives; what do we need to release and leave behind in 2016 and what would we like to welcome into our lives in 2017?

The Greatest Gift You Can Give Yourself…

What Do You See?

Hi Friends! Can it be that tomorrow is October already?! I don’t know about you, but it’s been a challenging month! It felt like life was coming at me on all fronts with one challenge after another and it was beginning to wear on me. When difficulties arise it’s often tempting to fall into the “why is this happening to me?” …

Creating Space for You to Show Up in Your Life

A mentor of mine would often quote Aristotle by saying, “Nature abhors a vacuum.” I took me a while to understand this quote and what my mentor was trying to tell me. Once I got it, it was life changing. Literally.   One thing I have discovered is that you need to make space for the things that you want to …

What it Means to Love. Heal. Shine.

Hi Friends,  Today I wanted to share with you the story behind my tag line: Love. Heal. Shine. I came up with it when I was rebranding myself and felt that it embodied my message and the process that I love helping others experience.  It also speaks to what I have learnt and experienced in my own life along my healing journey. But what …

Self Love = Body Love

I was online and I saw the Huffington Post’s article about German photographer and model Silvana Denker and her mission to spread #bodylove. On the streets of Berlin, Denker photographed eight women of different body shapes, sizes and ages in nothing but their underwear and bras. The photos are part of a new series entitled #Bodylove – a public showing of diversity and “how women …
