Welcome!

As an Ayurvedic Practitioner, Health Coach and Intuitive, my practice and continued goal is to educate and help others navigating their own unique journey to health. And the journey to health absolutely includes the emotional and spiritual aspects to us and addressing both our so-called “positive” and “negative.” This is key to understanding and obtaining whole health.

So here you’ll find a combination of nutrition only articles, as well as the more esoteric, my own personal stories and articles from other amazing practitioners and humans who are bringing authenticity and therefore healing to the world. While I utilize a combination of science based nutrition and eastern wisdom for a whole health approach, my particular specialty is helping people transform their health by connecting to their underlying stresses and emotions in order to decipher the messages that the body is communicating to them via physical ailments and issues. And in every case, there is always repressed pain and anger at the root. My intuitive gifts also allow me to tap in to the karmic seeds of where an imbalance is rooted in order to address it at the source.

I am deeply grateful to my own anger and it’s role in my own healing process as well as the power of healing it offers to all of us willing to acknowledge and respect it in a balanced way. Anger pulls us out of unhealthy situations when we’ve finally had enough, it establishes healthy boundaries, and is outspoken when injustice is being committed. Silence is consent. And that silence is physically and emotionally affecting us all as humans on this planet, and the planet itself. There’s a reason that the U.S has the highest rates of obesity, heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. And only part of it has to do with our eating habits. The key is connecting each one of us to the deeper parts of ourselves that are trying to speak to us through our physical health. Are you ready to listen?

Feeling Squeezed Lately? Here’s Why

Every week or so I get “tuned in” to the various different collective energies going on, and lately the topic of self care keeps coming up…in fact, my intuition has been nagging at me for days to sit and write about this so here it is.

There’s a LOT happening energetically lately. Again. It’s pretty palpable all around us. Are you feeling overwhelmed lately? I am. Like there’s so much to do, but you don’t know where to start? Or are you feeling like suddenly there’s a crapload of stuff happening that is demanding your attention, causing you to feel on edge? Are you snapping at your loved ones or noticing you’re more short with them than usual? Maybe you’re feeling almost like you’re in an energetic pressure cooker and being squeezed and pushed to make changes but you feel too overwhelmed at the thought of doing anything about it, or don’t know what to do about it? Others are experiencing crises in various areas, whether job, health, relationship, or money, all coming up big time for people right now. For some people, it’s all of the above at once.

The current collective energy is that of extreme pressure to change something about our life and situation. We are being pushed out of our comfort zone. It’s so uncomfortable, and there’s so much fear and doubt about what to do or how to do it or even whether it’s safe to make a change. Our minds are constantly trying to keep us “safe” and so it’s like we are in a battle between what our soul is trying to push us to do and our mind trying to keep us from doing it. The result is that we feel on edge and so we distract ourselves with “busy-ness” and chores, food, tv or errands, and things that we say are the highest “priority.” But don’t fall for it, it’s a trap! We rationalize doing anything to avoid addressing what’s going on underneath because there’s such an inner conflict and we are on edge and don’t know what to do about it. Or do we? It can feel like there are literally two completely separate factions at war with each other inside of us…and that’s because that’s exactly what’s going on. And so we ignore the easiest thing to ignore…ourselves.

Why is it that we are always the last ones to get our care and attention?

Well that’s a huge topic that we could go on about at length and is something that we tackle in Shadow Work classes. But rather than dive crazy deep into that (and most of us already know the reason why anyway) let’s just focus on some practical steps for what to do about it and how to course correct.

Study after study proves that self care is EXTREMELY important. Your health can suffer, your relationships can suffer, your business success and abundance can suffer and the ability to be fully present with your loved ones can suffer too. We all know that when we are taxed, exhausted and at our limit, we really aren’t able to help or provide support to our family, loved ones, and friends, but for some reason we still put ourselves as a last priority anyway. We feel like there’s so much to do, that we just don’t have the time to take care of ourselves the way we know we should. Well, that’s actually not true.

Sure, some people have more time to devote to this than others, but let’s be real brutally honest with ourselves…we ALL have 1 hour per week or even just twice a month to schedule in some “me” time. All we have to do is be willing to schedule it in and be SUPER strict with that time. No making excuses, put it on the calendar. It’s too easy to just keep pushing it aside in your mind, so we have to take physical action steps to help us actually complete it. No different than your 8-5 job really. Think of it that way. Because it IS that important.

If you’re constantly pushing yourself on the “shoulds” of what you need to be doing but not making time for your mental, emotional or spiritual health, than all the chores in the world aren’t going to make you feel better for doing them, relieve the pressure or make your process as efficient as it could be. And let’s be real, many of us know the consequences of continuing to ignore what our soul is pushing us to do. Shit just gets harder and harder, until you give in anyway 😉

So stop making excuses, schedule it in! One hour per week or every other week for YOU. Have a Reiki session, Massage, energy clearing session, manicure, pedicure, meditation day, drumming, spiritual counseling session, solo movie date, hike or even just an hour at the park in nature, but just DO it. Energy sessions can even be done remotely so you don’t have to leave your house! Sometimes meditation and solitude is enough and sometimes you just need to lay on a table and have someone else work on you. Believe me, as a practitioner I especially know the value of this and have my own go-to self care helpers on emergency speed dial when I need it 😉

Whatever you feel is needed for you right now, honor it, and make it a part of your schedule and watch how much more energy you have to do the rest of life’s daily requirements. Watch how much lighter, clearer, less stressed and more balanced you feel. You’ll have much better clarity about what action steps you REALLY need to take to tackle the inner conflict and squeeze you’re currently feeling. We all need help from time to time to help facilitate our inner and personal changes, so don’t feel obliged to struggle by yourself if you’re overwhelmed. Ease the pressure cooker, feel into what is calling to you for your specific self care needs right now and help relieve what’s currently squeezing you!!

Love to you all, you’re not alone in this process, so hang in there my friends, we can do this!

XOXO

SUCCUBUS: The Truth You Don’t Want to Hear

Anna Gorin

“To have her here in bed with me, breathing on me, her hair in my mouth—I count that something of a miracle.”

Henry Miller

This blog initially started out as a rant, a bit of a defensive article about the demonization of Succubi; I was hoping, am hoping, to shed some light on the wide range of uses we have outside of “Stealing sexual energy”.

Because this is such an important blog, and message, I have teamed up with my fellow Succubus Leslie Chepstow.

It is time the truth was set free, and it’s time the truth sets you free.

When people hear the word Succubus they think of a whore who steal Men’s sexual energy, or they conjure images of a scary She-Daemon who does the same.

Succubi FEED ON sexual energy, we do not always steal it. There is such a thing as consensual…

How Your Dreams Are Trying To Heal You

“Dreaming isn’t just what happens during sleep; dreaming is waking up to sources of guidance, healing and creativity beyond the reach of the every day mind.” – Robert Moss

Ever since I was a little kid, my dreams have been different than other peoples’ dreams. I certainly have normal dreams too, the mish mash of random things showing up based on what movie I watch, flying dreams, falling dreams, teeth falling out dreams, etc etc. But I also have other kinds of dreams that until age 12, I thought everyone else had too.

In this post, I am only going to refer to two specific kinds of dreams. Metaphor dreams, which everyone experiences, and then the not so common memories-of-other-lives-I-lived dreams. Yes as in I can access memories of being other people. However, I didn’t realize for a long time that they were other timelines/aspects of me that I was accessing.

Now to clarify, these dreams aren’t the fun “ooh I dreamed I was a vampire badass” or “I was a superhero and I could fly” dreams, no. These have a distinctly different feeling and knowing to them. These dreams would wake me up in the middle of the night sobbing with the intensity of the emotions that I was re-living in the dream, emotions that I was feeling because I had experienced the situation in the dream, not emotions felt from empathizing with a sad movie for instance. It’s the difference between feeling sadness from watching somebody you know lose a loved one, and actually going through the painful experience of losing someone you love.

The Beast that Dwells Within

This speaks to me so deeply, words fall incredibly short.

Brooke Shaden

“Rage — whether in reaction to social injustice, or to our leaders’ insanity, or to those who threaten or harm us — is a powerful energy that, with diligent practice, can be transformed into fierce compassion.”

Bonnie Myotai Treace

Ever since I was a little girl I have had a temper; a side to myself that others found unsavory, too wild, too opinionated, too loud, too aggressive, too stubborn—too much free will.

I have said in the past the only thing my Father ever gave me was this temper.

For years, and years people would try to tame me, water me down, try to fit me into a box…

I broke the box every time because what lives within me cannot be contained.

There is a part of me separate from my temper; this energy is not just my Shadow Self, it is fragments of lifetimes, people…

Alpha Lipoic Acid –

Did you know that an estimated 85% of the oxygen you breathe in is consumed by the mitochondria in your cells? Studies show that the decay of these tiny little energy producing powerhouses are at the core of  many aging and age related pathologies, as well as reduced and impaired metabolic function.

How Do You Know When You Are REALLY Ready For Change?

So, you’re starting to think about those extra pounds you “really should get off.” It’s holiday time, New Years’ resolutions are right around the corner and there’s so many holiday parties with baked goodies and temptations on a tray coming up. You tell yourself you’ll start after the holidays are done. Which, by all accounts is a great plan. But how do you know if you’re REALLY ready for changes to your lifestyle? How do you make sure you set yourself up for success instead of feeling like a failure?
