Dear Women, we have been asleep for too long. We have allowed our power to be stripped away and we have given- till we can give no more. Many have come before us and fought for our right to vote, to speak and to be heard. But there is still more to be done. We cannot lie down now. We are in a time of revolution and expansion. As the caregivers we will be the ones to birth a new generation, a generation of balanced, thoughtful children, children who will trust themselves, and listen to their intuition. Those children will stand up for their rights as humans, their right for clean water, clean air, and clean food. But it has to start with us. The women.
I write this letter to all who will listen, those of you who have been awake for some time, and those of you still asleep. For those of you who have found your voice, and those of you still seeking a way out of the lives you have created for yourselves.
First become totally honest with yourself, and those around you. Stop hiding. Stop lying. Start to speak your truth and trust the truth you speak. Learn how to listen to your intuition by hearing your inner voice. Once you clear the clutter of your mind you can hear your truth and start to see the signs of synchronicity all around you. This is why meditation is so important, for it is only when we clear our minds that our higher selves can be heard.
Mediation can be done in a variety of ways. It does not have to be traditional, as that does not work for everyone. Explore different ways of quieting your mind and releasing the judgments. Start by listening to your thoughts. Hear yourself, listen to what you are thinking, and if you do not like what you hear change the thought; simple as that. Once you gain control of your mind, your intuition will deepen. As women one of our biggest attributes is our intuition. Allow this to be your guide and teach your children to do the same. Ask yourself, “How do I feel about this?” Your feelings will never lie to you.
We are in a great time of awakening on the planet, of learning how to balance the masculine and feminine within. I believe by doing this we are helping Mother Earth to balance her energies as well. Expand your consciousness and live outside the box.
This year of the horse has been the fastest year yet. I have faced some of my biggest challenges, and come out a strong person for it. The year started out a bit rocky as you can tell by my early YouTube videos from the beginning of 2014. But by March I was up and running and I have been busier and happier than I have ever been in my life. I have trusted my intuition more and more, and learned how to follow energy. I look for the synchronicity life brings me every day and I stay grateful.
I recently traveled to Bulgaria and England to do earth healings and ceremony. One of my teachers Marcella Lobos gifted a group of women with the Womb Keeper Rites in Joshua Tree right before my journey, http://theriteofthewomb.com and at each ceremony I held after, I installed them for women as they were gifted to me. The rite of the womb allows women to release pain and suffering and embrace the truth of who they really are, life giving creatures, abundant and beautiful.
As women we have so much to offer. It all begins with us.
Be kind, compassionate, and nurturing with yourself, just as you would another. Face yourself and love what you see. Find the jewel in your soul and let it shine. Then raise a generation of intuitive humans, humans that love in order to make the world a better place.
With much Gratitude & Light

Are you the type of person who has always trusted yourself? Then this is not the article for you. I am here to speak to those like myself, those people who gave their power away and trusted everyone BUT themselves. Those of us that thought everyone else’s opinions were better than their own.
For many years I was a victim. I placed myself in situations where others controlled my life. I felt I always made bad decisions and so I stopped making them. I would ask at least 3, if not more people what I should do and then I would pick the one that sounded best.
In 1991 I began to step into my power and went back to school. This was not easy. As a single mother of 3 trying to manage was incredibly difficult, but I did it. Something inside of me was crying out to be heard, and although I did not know it at the time, this was the beginning of my spiritual awakening.
I read books on positive affirmations, and made new choices in the way I thought about myself, I did a lot of writing. I even burned some of it not knowing at the time it was a shamanic tool for release. I began to feel better, but I still did not trust my decision making process. No one had ever talked to me about my intuition or how to access it.
In 2006, my whole world changed. As I entered the world of Shamanism I found I was a feeler healer, as I know many of us are. Learning how to trust my intuition became a daily practice. I would make decisions based on how I felt. If I was wrong, I would not beat myself up, I would simply say, “That was a lesson”. Each lesson helped me to gain a better understanding of myself and how I worked.
I began treating myself like my own best friend. I spoke kindly about myself and to myself, and became hyper aware of my thoughts, words and actions. I became totally honest with everyone around me, most of all myself.
Once you become totally honest with yourself and take inventory of your life you can look around and see what is no longer working for you. In today’s world there are so many choices, and so much technology, we are getting further and further way from whom we really are.
Find yourself in the moment and ask yourself what truly makes you happy. Is it the new gadget, app, bigger house, or car? Are you looking outside of yourself to find happiness?
We can only truly be happy when we go inside ourselves and look around. Take a moment and breathe. Listen to your mind. What is the one thing you worry about the most? This is the thing you are giving your power away to. Stop giving it power. Breathe and shift your consciousness. Only you have the power to change your mind. The moment you decided to trust yourself, and become more conscious in your everyday living, the happier you will become.
Take stock of your life and how you want to live it. Clear out the clutter and get back to the basics. YOU are the most important person… YES you! You are the only one who can provide yourself with the comfort and care you deserve.
Once we start being kind to ourselves our intuition grows and we make decisions based on what’s best for us.
Make a commitment to yourself. Write a contract to be more loving, honest and compassionate with yourself. Those around you may have a hard time with the new you, but the real friends will stay around and admire your personal growth.
Trusting ourselves and teaching our children to do the same will grow a generation of leaders and our world will be a better place to live.

So many of us are looking for ways to simplify our lives and live from an authentic place. We are seeking ways to connect in a more spiritual way with ourselves and others. But for many this can be challenging. We either don’t understand what it means to be spiritual or to have lost faith.
So what does “being more spiritual” really mean? For me it means becoming more in tune with nature and the cycles of the earth, and becoming more conscious in my day-to-day life. It means remembering what it is like to be part of a tribe, a community, and becoming more indigenous. As I stated in my 2012 article, “It is time to return to our roots and create the new indigenous tribes.” For the past 5 years I have been weaving a new life for myself, a life that feels connected and conscious. Coming from where I came from this was not easy.
For the first 31 years of my life I lived in such an unconscious place, I thought that I was doomed. I worked hard at fitting in, trying to be one of the crowd, when all along I felt like a misfit. At that time I didn’t know I was actually a spiritual being looking for ways to connect. I believe this is what is happening with many people today.
Many are looking for ways to connect in an authentic way, yet have no idea how. Becoming more connected can show up in a variety of ways. Looking into the cashier’s eyes when buying groceries or paying for gas, or just saying hello and asking how they are. Another way is to do something kind for a stranger. My mother would always find ways to plant trees and give blankets to the homeless. There are so many ways to become more spiritually connected and live from an authentic place. One way to tune into your spiritual nature is by becoming more aware of not only your thoughts and words but also of what you eat. I used to be a junk-food junkie but in the past 20 years I have worked toward eating healthier foods. Since I cut out foods with chemicals I have found that I have more energy. Recently I started a green cleanse and am amazed at how much more intuitive I am. I have always been very tuned in with my clients but since this green cleanse, my intuition is off the charts. I can really feel the difference in my energy body. What we ingest is vital. Somewhere in our DNA structure there are indigenous cells. These cells are used to healthy foods, foods straight from the land.
Once we clear and clean these cells we can become more dialed in. It is this cellular memory that will assist us in awakening. Once awake our perceptions shift easily and there is no longer a need to stay attached to old ideas. We will begin to look at life with more compassion and understanding, creating more spirituality and authenticity in our daily lives. If you are one who is seeking to become more spiritually evolved, then look deep within. Find out who you are and how you tick. Change things that keep you from living your truth. Trust that you are a divine being with a mission and don’t let others dictate how you should live your life. Trust in your ability to connect and create. From this place you will be able to manifest a rich reality, one where you can feel whole, connected and at peace. It is important to keep a positive outlook on life and journal your progress. See where you are still negative or down on yourself and be kind. Go slowly through this process so you can learn to love and honor yourself. One of our many gifts as humans is the ability to create. We have this beautiful mind from which ideas take root and form. Use your mind and free yourself from old ways of thinking. Blossom and grow into the beautiful being you came here to be. When we become grateful for ourselves, and how we are showing up in the world, things begin to change. It is time to take root in the earth and shine our light for the world to see.
