My Coming Out…Happy Pride!

I have identified as bisexual since I was 11, even if I didn’t understand what it was at that time as I just saw it as being attracted to both boys and girls. However growing up with a father who was from the deeply religious southern United States (Arkansas) and was a extremely Southern Baptist, was quite challenging. I was made aware at a young age that I would not be accepted any other way than straight by him and that bringing home someone of the same sex would not be tolerated. My mom on the other hand was a

Intuitive Art and Healing

When I was studying Psychology at University if anyone had told me that I would be using my knowledge to create and teach how to heal through art I would have told them they were crazy, especially since at that time almost a decade ago I never would have considered myself an artist. However I am proud to say that I do now call myself an Artist and that I have the ability to create beautiful pieces as well as heal while doing so. I use my artistry to allow the chaos I feel inside to be soothed by the

Sobriety

On New Years Day 2012 I woke up more than halfway into the day hungover after a night of serious partying. I was a drug addict & had been for the previous 12 years until that day when it finally clicked, that if I kept it up I may end up dead (I was 29 at the time with a 6 year old child). I choose right then & there to quite & never looked back, to this day I have remained sober from substances. I did however swap one addiction for another as I was seriously unhealthy emotionally &

Day 6: I need to write about…

Day 6 of the Yogic Writing Challenge I need to write about how I overcame the single most life altering situation. How did I become the woman I am today? How did I learn to love myself? How is it that learning to love myself was so challenging and how was I able to tell another person so passionately and so deeply that I loved them and yet could not for the longest time even look myself in the mirror? Was it a lie, in a series of lies that had been my life, and if it was a lie,

Day 4: Pivot

I did a 7 day Yogic Writing challenge and this is the outcome of the prompt for day 4. I am the Queen of Pivoting, this I have come to learn. Everything centers around that fateful day when in an instant I lost everything up to the 31 years I had been living. After the trauma, of finding out that I did not know who I was, I was in an instant so depressed that I tumbled down a rabbit hole (even warriors have dark days). I refused to leave my bedroom and I was scaring both my mom and

Day 3: You are a Warrior

Day 3 of the Yogic Writing Challenge Six years ago I had been a warrior who had undergone so much to survive the traumas she had been through, both self-inflicted and other-inflicted, however she hit rock bottom and was once again crawling out. She thought she had ran the gauntlet and made it out the other side, she was about to find out that she still had many lessons to learn and that the greatest lesson of all, that of gaining faith and starting the true healing she had begged for years with her tears, was going to come at

The Car Accident…

On June 5, 2014 at 31 years old, I survived an accident that left my car totaled and my life flipped upside down. I didn’t know it at the time how chaotic the situation would get until my mom showed up at the accident site. I was struggling to remember who I was and definitely couldn’t remember anything else about the life I had lead up to that point. I honestly thought I was in my late teens at the time of the accident and soon realized that was not the case. Apparently the head injury I had sustained had

I am a Lighthouse…

When I started this journey I believed I could bypass the darkness and jump straight to the light… what I didn’t realize was that in order to BE THE LIGHT as I was intending, I had to go the shadows and heal all that was hiding there. I had forgotten all that was hiding after my accident in 2014. I was afflicted with retrograde amnesia and for the most part could not remember my life before the day of the accident I was in. That has since changed and as I started to find the shadows that were hiding, I

Fall…

This is my favorite time of year, though here in the Rocky Mountains we don’t always get a true fall, however I remember them vividly as a child. The beautiful reds, oranges, and yellows sprinkled throughout the vibrant greens that were trying to desperately hold on for just a little longer. As a little kid I remember thinking to myself that time would fly so fast and I would wish it would just slow down, that I could live in fall forever. Sadly that is not an option as we need the seasons to teach us about the ebb and

Life is a never ending journey that is simply a “Choose your own adventure!”

Originally posted on August 1, 2020 This summer, heck all of 2020 in general has been a freaking roller-coaster; one that at times I’m definitely saying “GET ME OFF THIS THING!”. However for the most part, I have found that because of all the shadow work and the inner child work that I have continued to work on these last few years, as well as the past life and generational healing that I have undergone, I have been able to navigate and pivot as the situations arise. This year I have cried, I have laughed, I have been angry and
