Sometimes the most important things can be said in a few sentences. We are clearer, happier, more effective practitioners when we feel connected. We build our bridges of connection through our senses. Our senses need nourishment so they can continue connecting. Scent is the most direct way to nourish our senses. Come to Scent of … Continue reading The best TLC
The truth is, you are a pulsing, moving, flowing explosion of LIFE's juicy creativity every moment of every day. Even on tired, crappy mornings or stressed-out crazy ones. Tuck that in your heart and use it to keep perspective. 'Cause we all lose if you aren't fiercely being who you are, doing what you do. … Continue reading Monday Moorings: You are enough
I’m a night-owl. My creativity most often has the same rhythm as night-blooming jasmine, waking after dark and coming into it’s fullest in the depths of night. Mornings though? Mornings are more about foggy thoughts and stumbling feet. One winter morning I was waiting for tea to brew (and trying to remember my name) when … Continue reading The highly sensitive advantage
My mind is often the trickiest part of myself to nourish. It tends to get cluttered and overworked, managing tons of details. It also becomes a haven for worry and seems to attract other people’s “stuff” until I’m overflowing. (Highly sensitive friends, I'll bet you know exactly how this feels.)

So many of us - high sensitives (HSP's), multipotentialites (Renaissance Souls), sensory outliers, evolutionary forerunners - know this feeling. When … Continue reading Yes. You belong.
Once upon a time, there was a shy little girl with a timid little voice who never, never told people what she was feeling from the world around her. It felt dangerous to let people know what she was observing, you see. So, she silently blended in, laying in the waving grasses, watching worlds unfold: insect and seed, … Continue reading How an HSP found the courage to speak out
So, when " the unknown" spoke up during my meditation I was confused and a little startled. Really? I was even more surprised to learn that the unknown can be an ally. "Unknown" is a presence.
