These images edited so I don’t get removed from anything if you want the real deal hit me up and I’ll send it to you. F*ck shame and the horse it rode in on! Shame is a complicated and complex thing inside most of us. It often leads us to do, say, and embody what isn’t really true about us. And most of the time we aren’t even aware that shame is leading us. It has over the years become a corrosive belief we hold about ourselves- I am worthless, I am not lovable, Nobody could
Well, I’m back! I’ve been gone from social media for a short bit. I had intended to communicate that I was taking a bit of a break but once that thought entered my mind I guess my subconscious took over and I couldn’t bring myself to post anything but the bare minimum.
What I began to realise was I was getting vulnerability fatigued from posting. In this new era we live in of cyber connectedness but not ever seeing each other face to face can feel very lonely. We start or r
What helps you feel centered? What comforts the loneliness or ache in your heart?
You know better what you need than anyone else.
If you’re not sure what is comforting to you, that’s not unusual and you can do some exploring and find things that help you feel loved and connected and throw out the ones that don’t. You hold all the cards and you are worth connecting too.

Feelings Nothing More Than Feelings🎶 Feelings are not “just” feelings, they are the nuts and bolts of our pain and sorrow, our laughter and joy - what makes us uniquely us and uniquely human.
Feelings are the connective tissue that keeps us aware and interconnected to who we are-body, soul, and spirit- but even more than that, feelings keep us connected to the deep Who of who we really are underneath all the pretense and survival.
But, hell, feelings can be brutal and hit
Sometimes I am at war with my body. I’m doing the work of shame, blame, and abuse others taught me so well to do. But my body is not at fault it has been a champion of holding me, letting healing in, and protecting me during and from trauma. It’s easy to blame it for it’s frailties much harder to shout it’s praises. I am learning to love the whole of it, speak kind words to it and thank it for it’s fight. I am also learning to tell it to rest, that it’s safe to sleep, heal, a
photo credit Amy McMullen If there is any part of you that is on the fence about Meditative Archery or you are wondering what the big deal is, let me explain. Maybe it's the wording that is throwing you off. You might be thinking I don't know how to meditate and meditation is intimidating or you might be thinking I HATE TO JOURNAL. The journaling I'm referring to isn't journaling at all, in fact the only relationship to this journaling and the one you may have tried (stream o
It's over, the 40 days of potential personal reflection is done. Now the eating and drinking commence ; ) How are you feeling on the other side? Do you feel a deeper connection to yourself, the world, your Creator?
Do you feel a greater capacity to love yourself and the world around you?
Are you breathing deeper?
Or did you notice a resistance to meditation, deeper breathing and time spent in love of self and humanity? Me? I always feel a bit of a let down a
What I've noticed over this Lenten period is it is really, really LONG! And in its length some days I forgot I was even practicing it. I'm sure this is multifaceted for different reasons... *I'm not in a community anymore, so the reminder withing a group and the conversations that could happen in that group are not happening. *I'm not doing any email reminder that would prompt me to action on a daily basis as I've done in the previous years. I have a friend who worked for Wor
Almost one full week of Lent down. How are you doing so far? Did you come up with attainable and manageable goals for yourself possibly centered around what is holding you back: from loving yourself, being vulnerable, walking in forgiveness, taking up space, owning your voice, being fully alive ETC? How did it go implementing those goals? Did you over commit and plans of meditating at 5 am have turned into sleeping late and blowing the whole thing off? Or did it slip your min
What is the Intensive Journaling Method and why should you care? The intensive journaling method is a rich and transformative way to get into the story of your life. Not all of your story is nice and tidy and not all of your story is terrible, but it is still your story and your story is important and deserves to be told, even if it's just told to you. Sometimes when we look back over the course our lives have taken we are overwhelmed with negative emotions or feelings of fai
