Why You Can’t Escape Your Pain

We all know the value of communication. We’re taught it on some level from the day we’re old enough to consciously communicate verbally all the way through school and in early job positions. Some of us excel at different forms of communication (verbal, written, creative expression, whatever)- and some of us struggle to effectively communicate…

Shedding

One day you finally knew what you had to do, and began, though the voices around you kept shouting their bad advice – though the whole house began to tremble and you felt the old tug at your ankles. “Mend my life!” each voice cried. But you didn’t stop. You knew what you had to…

Ch 2018: Metamorphosis

This year could be a full book, to be honest. When I think back to the decade that was 2018, the image of a specific tarot card comes to mind. The four of swords; with the lamb sitting calmly underneath the threatening points- it implies an attitude of mental stillness and mindfulness amongst oncoming potential…

CrossRoads + Process + Community

“You do not need to reinvent yourself to be at ease” – Robyn Thomas I haven’t written in a while. In the last few months I’ve been sitting with myself. I built a cocoon and have been quietly transforming from the inside out. I’ve been processing that ongoing transformation. It’s one I’ve felt on the…

Hats + Existential Philosophy

“As Carl Jung repeatedly declared, our goal is wholeness, not perfection. People living soulcentrically are not untroubled or unchallenged. They are not beyond experiencing times of confusion, mistakes, and tragedies. They have by no means healed all their wounds. They are simply on a path to wholeness, to becoming fully human- with all the inevitable…

White Knuckling the Wheel of Life

To a certain extent if we are going to regain balance, we need to let go. It’s taken me so long to write this out because I’ve become so connected into a new level of myself- and what I’ve been learning is requiring a total rewrite. I’ve been sitting in a deep doubt that creates…

Wild Goose Chase

A wild goose chase is defined as a “foolish and hopeless pursuit of something unattainable”. This is not the path I’ve chosen. If you follow my channels at all, you’ll likely have noticed I am all over the map lately (lol, lately..). It’s been fascinating to me to observe people’s reaction to this gypsy lifestyle…

Pegs and Holes: Thoughts from the not so beaten path

I’ve been thinking quite a lot lately about systems. The systems we create, rely on, and get stuck within. As a business owner I have (somewhat unwittingly) created and bought into systems for efficiency and growth. As a society we innately reside within systems for the same reason. Efficiency, social construct, and organization of the…

(Non)Judgement

Sitting looking over the downtown Calgary cityscape late this morning, reading Gloria Steinem’s “My Life on the Road” – I was routinely interrupted by thoughts of what felt like passive self judgement passing through my mind. “You should be working on something” “Go outside and move” “Come up with some ideas” ? ^^ Yes, that…

Realization

“We all wait for a mirror to show us who we are, to validate us. When we hear something about ourselves that we have never heard before, it feels like a blessing, and it gives power.” For months I’ve been receiving reflections, projections, and deflections from those in my life. Reminding me who I am,…
