How to connect your heart to your voice

Feb 13, 2021

I picked an animal card for us today, and we got Nightingale!

 "This card indicates a need to open the bridge between the heart and the voice."

- Kim Krans, The Wild Unknown Animal Spirit Oracle

Nightingale is all about lifting your voice, singing out, and allowing yourself to be heard.

Have you been having trouble sharing your writing? Does it feel like something is clogged between your heart and your voice?

Today, I have a guided visualization to help you strengthen the...

New Moon Reflection Questions

Feb 11, 2021

Today is the New Moon. This is the time when the moon is smallest in the sky. It provides us with the darkest nights and the best view of the stars. It is also the beginning of a new moon cycle.

When you create with the lunar cycle, the New Moon is a time when your creative energy might be low but also beginning to make a turn towards creating again. This is a time to contemplate what wants to be done next.

Here are today's New Moon...

Waning quarter moon reflection questions

Feb 04, 2021

Today is the Waning Quarter Moon, the halfway mark between the full and new moons. It is a time when the moon is descending into its dark period. This is a time for reflection, to ask what needs to be released, and to allow for surrender and flow.

Here are today's Waning Quarter Moon Reflection questions to help you notice how you feel and discover what's next for you during this phase of your creativity. 

One supportive way to answer these questions is to...

A podcast recommendation for you!

Feb 03, 2021

Today is the day before the Waning Quarter Moon. This is a time to start turning inwards, to feel the beat of your heart, to allow yourself to experience, as Clarissa Pinkola Estes calls it, "the river beneath the river".

I recently found a podcast that is helping me do just this.

Track Your Life with Boyd Varty is a series of journal entries describing 40 days and 40 nights Varty spent alone in the wilderness this year.

His calming voice and descriptions of tracking rhinos and...

What has made a difference for you during The Pandemic?

Feb 02, 2021

How are you doing? What have you been learning? What have you been seeing and sensing?

I've been watching a lot of Star Trek lately, rewatching old episodes and finding my imagination in space again.

You know what I really love? The stars. The night sky. The moon. The planets. I have always loved astronomy, but it's only until very recently, like the past couple months, that I've learned about astrology.

I did an online conference where Theresa Reed, @thetarotlady, was a guest...

Creativity is a great adventure

Jan 30, 2021

Why not take the leap?

Why not go somewhere you've never gone with your creativity?

Why not feel what it's like to accomplish the thing you've wanted for so long?

Why not explore the wilds of your own creativity, the places you have yet to go with your heart and soul?

Why not confront the demons that stop you?

In this wild, crazy time of the Pandemic and staying in one place, the greatest place to explore is the vast realm of your creative spirit.

Imagine waking up tomorrow having...

Why can't you just hit publish already?

Jan 29, 2021

Do you ever find your self wondering why you can't just do this already?

Why can't you just write and hit publish?

Everyone else seems to be doing it, and they seem to be doing well with all their followers, too.

But for you, something else is going on, and it's frustrating as hell.

The truth is our society is full of the expectations that you just do things already.

Just exercise already. Just lose weight already. Just make a million dollars. Just be massively successful at your...

The story of when I wrote my first blog post

Jan 28, 2021

Writing my first blog post was one of the most terrifying experiences of my life.

I wrote my first post seven years ago, and up until that point, writing had always been on the periphery for me. Yes, I loved literature and was a devoted English major.

Sure, now and again a story would fly through me, get recorded on a Word Doc, and end up lost somewhere on my computer.

And, yeah, my bosses always complimented me on my ability to write a clear email.

But writing, like the kind of...

2 mindset tips for when nobody replies to your post

Jan 25, 2021

When I started writing online a few years ago, I thought the biggest, hardest, baddest thing possible would be for an internet troll to attack me, but when I published my first post, I discovered there might be something even worse than that.

No internet trolls attacked my post, but also NO ONE responded. I mean no one...not a like, not a comment, not a peep.

I had spent so much time worrying about trolls, I never even considered the possibility of the pain of being ignored.

It felt...

Other people's words in times of crisis

Jan 08, 2021

Hi All,

I should probably talk to you about what happened this week...about the injustice...about the rage...which I'm seeing and feeling profoundly today. I feel so freaking angry right now.

But mostly I'm still taking it in, and I'm feeling a lot. I'm not quite ready to talk.

Some people are so amazing at writing and expressing themselves in the moment of crisis. I am forever impressed by that.

For me, in these moments of crisis, my heart turns inward. I feel silently and quietly, and so at...
