I am more than a shiny and polished object to marvel over.
When I tell people that I don’t wear much makeup because I don’t want to stand out or that I like to dress down because I don’t want to bring attention to myself, looks of exasperation are sent my way as if I’m full of myself, or the opposite, I’m not full enough. “What, but you’re pretty, you don’t have to worry about anything”. Being pretty is why I have to worry. I ask myself over and over, am I being conceited or self centered because I think my looks are too appealing to men? Is it just me? Continue reading
“Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.”-Plato
“Music is life”, a saying that I’ve heard many times and believe it to be true. Imagine turning on your jam and feeling the room fill with love and comfort. It’s amazing how something can create an environment of pleasure and euphoria just by a clicking a triangle. Continue reading
Oh childhood, where have you gone? Actually, where were you?
Childhood is a time of innocence, fun, exploration, learning, unconditional love, and NO WORRIES! Of course, the way my life is set up, childhood was all of the above for my brothers and I, except for the no worries and adding to the list: stress, hunger, violence, and TRAUMA.

“Every woman is a unique expression of the divine feminine.” –Teal Swan
This blog originates from a spiritual awareness of the energies within us and this world that create balance. For ultimate well-being, our social, emotional, physical, and spiritual selves should be in balance with each other. As mentioned in The Divine Feminine Part 1, balance between the female and male should be priority. The divine feminine is the female part of the whole in which we consider life. We cannot deny how sacred and significant a woman is to society. Actually, we wouldn’t even have a society if the woman were not present. Continue reading
Is God really a woman? Traditionally, when we think of God we think of a strong yet gentle and wise male figure according to almost ALL photo results when performing a google search. But what about the references to Earth as Mother Earth and Mother Nature or the fact that women carry and birth all human life?

The fact that we give life physically should suggest that maybe a woman, or feminine energy, played a significant role in our creation and existence. Continue reading
There’s so many ways to meditate, why aren’t we all living in peace?
Last night, like many other nights, I tried to meditate and failed horribly. I sat and attempted to relax to last no longer than 3 minutes. I’ve been successful before with meditation but this time was just different. I prepared my area with candles, crystals, and a few other special items making up my ritual area. Breathing deeply in and out, being aware of my body and its sensations; letting all thoughts flow similar to counting sheep at night while trying to fall asleep. The 3 minute mark came and I held on to the last thought, “I can meditate in other ways”. Continue reading
