Here we are in February, still in a pandemic and the phrase radical self care has never resonated more with me. It's really something we can benefit from incorporating all year no matter what's going on, but especially in the dark, winter months.How do we truly take care of ourselves?There are the usual things: drinking water, listening to uplifting music, going in nature, etc.But there are also other things not so obvious to all of us. And I've started to search for and find my way to some of those. I believe it helps to be intentional about adding healthy new experiences to our lives.So as I try new things, I'll tell you about my experience.First up - meditation and sound bath healing with Sheila Harris at Haute Yogis Studio in South Fargo.The meditation was great, pretty much what you'd expect from a guided meditation. If you'd never tried one, they can be very powerful for clearing energy. At...
The other night, I woke up suddenly, my whole body tingled with fear and "what the hell". I thought oh my goodness, a lot of people bought my book. Now they'll probably read the damn thing.

But we're taught to think something different aren't we? Our thought train can go off the tracks pretty quickly worrying about what other people think about us. And then we might...
Here’s to the enlightened ones, the ones who buy crystals and burn sage, who look down on the “unawakened”. You, responding to posts saying “oh yes, I sensed that, knew that, I dreamed about that or spoke to my guides about that.”

To those who speak fluently in spiritual bullshit but won’t deal with your own shit. For those who look the part but refuse to look within.
I've been looking within and I get it. It's a shit show. Who wants that?
But are you brave enough to see you’re just another version of what you disdain. Do you have the courage to admit you’re playing another version of the same 3D conflict, the us versus them, good versus bad, separation. We’re enlightened but they’re not – you/me, us/them.
It’s all a ruse, a distraction to keep your ego/mind in control. You think because you manifested that new car, you are enlightened, awake, ascending. You follow some guru...
