Having had two days with family and being in Boston has really challenged me health-wise. It was great to celebrate my nephews’ graduations and it was great to see family but it has taken a great toll on me. My fatigue and brain fog are very challenging. I have been somewhat incapacitated from the experience. This is my reality and I am at peace because I am fully accepting my reality and not focused on wishing it would be different. Continue reading
After a 13 year process, I feel it is time for me to rest in ease, love and grace while at the same time recognizing the great distress from my hypervigilance. It is time for me to rest in self love, self mastery and self realization while at the same time experiencing my illnesses. It is time for me to celebrate the life I have built over these 13 years; a beautiful life of a mystic in relationship. There have been some long and harrowing years but feel that I have come to this place of completion. I am so grateful for those who have journeyed these years with me. Their love and support was always completely felt and really saved my life. Continue reading

The trees reminded me to be deeply rooted and grounded in nature. I felt called to simply rest in the love that was all around me at this time. Continue reading
In the past few days my pain level has been a 10. Yesterday, I struggled with the vulnerability of having such high needs for help, support and love because I was unable to do much for myself.

What I was able to do is receive everything I was feeling with such love and compassion. I was able to feel all the energy of these emotions and thoughts moving through my body and I felt such gratitude for feeling so alive and awake.
I am trying not to focus on my suffering anymore. Continue reading
