Summer Solstice Invitation

Summer Solstice Invitation
Happy Summer Solstice everyone! This image reminds me of a cherished painting of my abuelita, Madre Sarita. It depicted the Eye of Providence with the all-seeing eye radiating within a pyramid. (Do you see the eye here?!) I loved that painting and spent hours meditating upon it. For me, it represented the eye of the dreamer—mine and that of the divine infinite—and it opened my spiritual eyes to see beyond form and into...

Earth Day Invitation

Earth Day Invitation
The Earth laughs in flowers. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson Thank you Ralph. And thank you Mother. I have such gratitude for the beauty of this Earth and all that She inspires. She has always been my greatest teacher and friend— my secret church and the riverbed for my tears. She has been speaking to me and through me since I was a child, as I believe She does with every human, every living...

Saying Yes to More

It has truly been a ‘standing in both worlds’ experience— completing my contribution to another collaborative book (WootWoot!) while navigating the busyness of life. I had to bow out for a bit so I could bow in and honor this space of healing and change. And now, I am so happy to emerge...

I Ask & I Recieve

I Ask & I Recieve
I ask and I receive. Sometimes we don’t even bother to ask. Other times, we forget to wait for a response... or we simply don’t believe we deserve one (which kinda means we never REALLY asked, right?). I have a new student who wanted to join our upcoming Healer’s retreat, Shamanic Healing Practicum, but wasn’t sure how to afford it. She was about to close the door on it. I told her what...

Receptivity: A Vessel Surrendered

Receptivity: A Vessel Surrendered
Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote that receptivity brings us into an “original relation to the universe”; I can't think of a better place to stand as a Healer or as a human. For receptivity is one of our greatest gifts, and its key lies in our nature — in what is inherent to us without the paved streets of the mind.  What is receptivity, but an opening through which we receive. Yet it is...
