Not Everyone Has to Like it

Here’s the thing about spiritual awakening and personal development – not everyone is going to like it. Not everyone is going to understand. Not everyone is going to accept, approve, or even believe the new you that begins to emerge as the last masks fall off and you strip that cloak of fear away. This … Continue reading Not Everyone Has to Like it

Earth Angel

Oh how I long to be among your earth angels; teach me what I need to know. Strip me of all that’s selfish, all that’s dense, free me from any lies. I ask that you hear me now, as my soul is crying out. Speak to me and teach me. I’m calling all angels, teachers, … Continue reading Earth Angel

What an Introvert Knows

Some people are never alone in the quiet libraries of their minds and the open meadows of their hearts; while other people are lonely despite being overtly adored and surrounded by family and friends. Some people embrace vulnerability while sitting in dusty bookstores, or wandering alone through the trees; while others hide in plain sight, … Continue reading What an Introvert Knows

It Does Matter

Words are so much more than mere symbols, and they’re so much stronger than the simplicity of speaking suggests. Words are sacred vessels that carry the soul of whomever speaks them; they’re precious ewers that hold energy, feeling, and intent. A collection of words is like a pantheon of gods – each one ethereal, immortal, … Continue reading It Does Matter

Goddess Rebellion

I am a living rebellion. My very existence is a protest. My truth and my life is a provocation, a challenge to these lies that we’re all being fed. I refuse to allow these deceptions to define me. They cannot, for I denounce them with every breath I take. I mock them with every step … Continue reading Goddess Rebellion

We the Dreamers

We are the dreamers, the ones with souls as deep as oceans and with the reflections of stars in our upturned eyes. We’re the wistful, the hopeful, and the quiet ones, gazing off in the distance with that absent but knowing smile. With our heads in the clouds and our hearts on our sleeves, we … Continue reading We the Dreamers

My Kind of Spirituality

My kind of spirituality is the kind that needs no name. It respects no rules and fits no form. It’s as unique as an evening star, and fluid as the morning mists. My kind of spirituality doesn’t come from the pages of a book, but rises up from the depths of my soul. My sacred … Continue reading My Kind of Spirituality

Go Ahead and Look Back

People like to say that you should never look back. They like to recite catchy little lines like don’t look back, you’re not going that way, or keep your eyes on the road ahead, not behind you – but the truth is rarely so simple as to fit in a convenient little one-liner, and these … Continue reading Go Ahead and Look Back

In Thanks

Thank you to the sun, for rising each morning without fail or applause. Thank you for every kiss that you laid upon my upturned face (your touch always did make me blush), and thank you for coaxing the flowers up from their cozy beds. Thank you for peeking out long enough to lift my spirits … Continue reading In Thanks

The Road Behind Me

There will always be farther to go; but I’m proud of just how far I’ve already come.  I’ve stripped away layer after excruciating layer of who I thought I was, what I thought I knew, and what I wanted to believe.  I’ve cleared away the rubble and put out the flames, and discovered my soul … Continue reading The Road Behind Me

Through Their Eyes

In this life, my dear, you are going to meet some people who don’t accept you for who you are.  Some may try to change or fix you.  Others might judge and criticize you. Some people will accept you only until you hit a rough patch, until you make a mistake or struggle with a … Continue reading Through Their Eyes

And So it Is

In the light of the sun, may we loop the final stitch in all that’s been shorn unduly apart; and by the soft glow of the moon let us smooth out what remains of all our old scars. When we feel the slight itch of a past pain, let us casually brush it away – … Continue reading And So it Is
