"I see my life as an unfolding set of opportunities to awaken."
- Ram Dass
Well, my dear friends another beautiful month has come and gone. It is wild that we are already moving into June and the Summer Solstice is only a few short weeks away. I am wishing you all well and sending you love during this time of transformation and growth.
I love writing these monthly reflections because it is an opportunity for me to observe how much change has occurred in just a month. Journaling and writing are such wonderful ways to release, let go, and make room for what is to come. If you do not already, I deeply recommend making space for your experiences, thoughts, inspirations, and celebrations of self-growth to be channeled out into your written word.
As many of you already know I have been on a journey of self-growth and healing for some time. Though, I believe that life is all a process of growth, healing, and transforming from one version of yourself to another. We are always uncovering more and being gifted with opportunities to grow and become an even better version of ourselves. It is through our courage and willingness to work through our blocks and heal our hearts that we bring true and lasting change to the world. For me, May was another month of healing and clearing out the debris of what no longer served me so I could move deeper on my journey.
At the beginning of the month, I went on a solo soul trip, where I ended up spending 5 nights in a charming Airbnb in South Dakota while my husband graciously looked after the kids. This was a beautiful gift as I was able to have time to reset and embrace the quiet and gentle call of my soul. When I decided to take this trip, I had absolutely no idea where I would end up, though as the Universe would have it, I was divinely guided to my destination. It was an interesting step out of time for me and was evidently clear why the Universe had sent me to this small town in South Dakota. The Airbnb had a library scattered with books from some of my favorite authors (Ram Dass, Ester & Jerry Hicks, Wayne Dyer, Louise Hay, etc.), and the town was quietly nestled in the Black Hills where I could feel the potent energy of the land. During the week I was gifted opportunities to be around people with highly different belief systems than my own and was able to practice understanding and non-judgment. From my openness of mind and openness of heart, I had lovely conversations with complete strangers and found myself receiving the messages I needed to hear and equally being told “you know, you are saying exactly what I needed to hear, I am so glad I was able to talk to you”.
For the most part, during the five days, I made no solid plans, cleared my schedule, and let the Universe direct me to the places that would provide the greatest benefit. I spent the first part of the trip working on projects and creating, allowing myself to become fully immersed in my writing and move deeper into my work. At the end of the week, I spent time in the mountains and took advantage of the opportunity to visit Mount Rushmore and the Crazy Horse Monument. Both sculptures were magnificent sights to see and deeply symbolic for my journey. I pondered the vastness of the projects and marveled at the passion that it took to create such works of art. These creations had begun as only a vision in one’s mind and were now tangible rock carvings standing the tests of time to tell a story. When it was time to return home, I was refreshed, ready, and eager to get back to my family.
Closer to the end of the month, I had a wonderful encounter with a woman who helped me to release and move through energies I had been holding on to. These blocks had been brought to light when a particular event occurred and dropped me straight into old sensations of anxiety, fear, and lack. I was grateful and proud of myself because during the experience I did not react and was able to clearly see that the situation had occurred to bring to the surface something within me that still needed to be healed. I was able to recognize immediately that this occurred because of the energy I was subconsciously projecting out and thus receiving back. As with all things, in Divine timing, the Universe brought me and Kelly Ford together. Kelly is a warm-hearted and beautiful soul, has extensively studied in Projections, and whose love, compassion, and wisdom radiate throughout her aura. During our time together Kelly provided the space for me to feel held and safe enough to move through a process of releasing old stories and limiting beliefs. During this process, I revisited memories and experiences from my childhood where I acquired these blocks and first started to store them in my body. Once I was able to recall memories and feel the energy of the stored emotions, I was able to move into a process of forgiveness and rewriting the story. When the session was over, I felt lighter, clearer, and raw from the release. Even though a lot had come up, I knew that this was just the beginning. Over the next few days, I continued to feel the emotions that were bubbling up; continuously surrendering, and letting go of all that wanted to be released to make room for the new wave of energy that had begun moving through me. I allowed the tears to fall and to meet myself where I was, compassionately shifting my schedule to honor my own needs for self-care.
The work that Kelly did with me was in response to requests I had been putting out to the Universe and was a pure gift. I graciously accepted the opportunity to have the space held for me in such a loving way so I could move through, release, and rewrite something that had been lying dormant.
If you would like to learn more about Kelly, I highly recommend Clicking Here and Following her Projections Cluster on the islands of Coherence. If you are not yet on the IOC, you can Join by Following this Link.
As I have said many times before, healing is not a linear process and is more like riding a roller coaster with a blindfold on. If you have been on the healing path then you too know that we keep riding the wave, moving with the ebb and flow, and making space for what needs to be healed to surface. We are all students and teachers on this journey and as we continue to move on our path and invite our bodies, minds, and spirits to heal we can use what we have learned to guide others while continuously meeting the teachers who are right for us as the right time.
Well, my dear friend, I hope that you have had a lovely month and once again I would like to invite you to make the space to reflect on your month of May. What happened? What did you experience? What were your big wins or moments of healing? What are you most proud of from this past month? Allow yourself to feel and release on paper what is asking to be let out and then courageously share this with someone else. If you feel called, I invite you to share your reflection here in the comments below.
Thank you for all that you are my friend. Keep on Shining. Keep on bringing the Love.
Once again thanks for reading my reflection, keep on reading below to see the offerings that are coming up in the month of June.
World Unity Week: World Unity Week is an 8-day online gathering taking place from June 19th-June 26th and filled with presentations and performances by various thought leaders and change-makers from all over the world. It is still somewhat up in the air as to all that I will be doing that week, but currently, I will be guiding a meditation during a presentation titled "Living in Heart-centered Gratitude" and will likely be hosting a presentation titled "Be the Change: Living in a Love-Centered World."
Stay tuned for more about this is an email a little closer to the week of WUW.
Group Soul Sessions: Throughout the month of May, it became clear that I needed to shift a few things in the upcoming months. So, Group Soul Journeys will begin in July instead of June. This will provide the space for me to give my full attention to World Unity Week and have a more consistent schedule in place for the Group Journeys.
Group Journeys will take place on Mondays from ~ 5-6:30 PM (MTN) offered by donation and will include a Teaching, Meditation, Diving Deeper Practices, and time to connect with others on their journey.
The following topics will be addressed in the July sessions (topics titles subject to minor changes). Please register for each session individually.

22-Day Soul Journey: This creation is taking its divine time to be born. I want to make sure this journey is fully created with divine inspiration and that those who embark on the journey get the absolute most out of it. Thus, I am tentatively setting a start date for Late July early August.
This journey will last 22 days and will include Lessons, Diving Deeper Practices, Meditation Practices & Guided Meditations, Daily Affirmations, and Mantras. All Materials will be available for download to provide for lifetime access and may have the option to purchase the course with or without the weekly Group Zoom Calls.
