Yoni Steaming takes pampering to a new level. We always talk about our vaginas needing cleaning physically, but it is just as important to consider the energetic cleansing that is necessary to have peace in our wombs. My hand crafted yoni steam blends contain herbs intended to cleanse the womb of impurities, help treat infections, and also remove stagnant energy that may be built up as a result of unreleased emotions. Give your womb the care it deserves. Want to know more, DM me. Purchase at my Etsy shop, link in bio 💓
Mental Health: it’s a topic that is hard to talk about when you are feeling your best, but at my worst I find myself telling everyone everything. About how helpful therapy can be and about how medication can be a game changer. But one thing I don’t often talk about is the struggle of finding the right medication. It can feel like a hellish limbo while you wait to see if the fog of depression will lift or get darker. When you feel good it is hard to remember how you could ever feel bad and when you are bad ... you can’t believe you ever felt good.
So I make charts. I record my moods and my feelings to help me remember. And in the process I create something beautiful. . .
Disney’s, “InsideOut” is a Super Fun and Super Cute Movie with a huge message! Get to know your Parts! Recognize that others have Parts. Have compassion for everyone and all Parts involved.
If you haven’t seen this movie or didn’t realize it was based on Parts work, rewatch it again, better yet, rewatch it with someone you love. 💕
Journaling is one of the best ways to release negative emotions and dissect what caused you to feel that specific emotion. Writing things down with the intention to understand, so you can make an informed decision on how to respond is how you get into a position to act and not be acted upon. If you’re struggling to overcome a problem try journaling, it’s one of my most prized methods of figuring out life.
This is my sweetest girl, Felicity. She’s more chihuahua than poodle, but that’s her mix.
She’s had trouble breathing since she was about 2 years old, snorting and reverse wheezing and sneezing. She’s 8 now and two days ago, her breathing became so bad I feared she would die.
I sat down to figure her case out and help her to feel better. Animals are not all that different from humans and when you understand your own body, it helps you to understand those you love.
At first, I thought she had a collapsed trachea and it was preventing her from getting adequate air. But as I really observed her, she didn’t make noise when she panted, only when using her nose. This told me it wasn’t likely to be her trachea.
I researched more and even snorted through my own nose a few times to feel in my body where it happens. I learned that her breed is known to have issues with the soft palate. Something told me that if she had an acute swelling of that tissue, inflammation was a factor. The cause was not known, but in humans, inflammation is caused by acids, injury, or pathogens.
I decided to alkalize her body a bit by shifting her diet and incorporate a turmeric paste with CBD oil for inflammation and pathogen/infection control.
So, I mixed together pumpkin, sweet potatoes, and applesauce in a bowl and gave her 1/4 cup mixed with 1/8 cup green juice and 1/4 scoop of collagen with probiotics and also the 1/4 tsp. turmeric paste mixture.
Immediately following the fresh food, I give her 1/8 cup dry kibble that is grain free.
I do this morning and evening. A few hours after eating, and because fresh food digests faster, I split a banana between her and my other dog. They also get a chew that is just for boredom, we don’t have a place to run and play.
Today, 2 days after I thought I was losing her, Felicity is having very little issue breathing. Currently, as I’m writing this, she is sleeping on her side quietly for the first time in I don’t know how long.
Everything I read online was telling me that it’s a problem that needs surgery or will never get better, that I need to prepare to lose my sweet bestie because there’s no hope. ⬇️⬇️⬇️
With this waning moon let go. Do something that helps you lean back and surrender.
Control is ego based. It has no place in your life. When you feel yourself pushing, hustling, controlling, you’ve disconnected from your soul.
A powerful way to surrender is to get out and spend time in nature. Receive what Mother Earth wants you to have. Where’s there’s no ego. 🦋🌱💗 Just love 🙌🏻💧💝
I love this message because women are so powerful period, that when we come TOGETHER in #solidarity & #collaboration, such magic happens. And the opposite happens - intense separation/isolation/problems/ouch - when we #judge/#shame/#blame/#punish, #compete or fall into what I call #CompareAndDespairSyndrome. These are spiritual cancers and poisons compliments of to the twisted, dehumanizing, despiritualizing #heteropatriarchal colonist #culture. .
We are all so unique, each one of us with such important gifts & contributions to add to the collective We which can and does really change things, personally, #politically & culturally.
Also, it's only a matter of time before we have differences of opinion, politics, views, etc. Too often, #colonized/#colonist women's spaces are quick to shut down or close rank when someone disagrees or doesn't toe the party line. We are so much better and stronger and smarter than this. We gotta stand against harm from men just as much as harm that happens among eachother, by not accepting the unacceptable, while at the same time understanding we are all works in progress with wounds that need healing, and things that need learning (a lifelong process).
Let's shed the #misogyny forced onto us by #colonistculture so we can start SEEING eachother. This is the path to true #connection and #relationship building that is critical for change-making and support period, personal and political (there is no divide when we get to the heart & guts of matters).
In Peace, Power & Love.

What would happen if you were radically honest with yourself?
What would happen if instead of feeling shame or fear and suppressing them and turning to addictions to distract yourself from those feelings, you recognized and honored the shame or fear and confronted them?
What would happen if you acknowledged your judgments as projections?
What would happen if instead of avoiding your confusions, doubts, and anxieties, you turned towards them? Faced and resolved them bravely and lovingly?
What would happen if you loved yourself for having flaws and shadows as opposed to loving yourself in spite of them?
What would happen if you took responsibility for your mistakes? Set your ego aside as often as possible and graciously admitted fault and willingly learned from your missteps?
What would happen if you embraced and shared your successes with humility instead of flaunting them out of insecurity?
What would happen if you asked for help? Accepted that you don’t know everything, can't do everything by yourself, and welcomed those facts as not making you inadequate but human?
What would happen if you forgave, released resentment and loved unconditionally? Did not require love in return, but gave your heart and soul freely despite past heartbreak and pain?
What would happen if you believed in the best-case scenarios? Leaned into hope, confidence, and trust in yourself and your loved ones?
What would happen if you focused on your strengths and not your weaknesses?
What would happen if you allowed yourself to dream without boundaries? And allowed yourself to live those dreams?
What would happen?

Want to know what lights me up MOST in this world?
The ripple effect.
Change one women, change her family, change the community, change the WORLD. 🌎
This is REAL, my dear.
How many people do you energetically influence in a day?
If you shifted the way you saw yourself, the way you treated yourself... how would everyone else shift around you?
UGGHHHHHH SOO GOOOD!!!! 😩
I’ve been seeing the ripple effect come more and more to life everyday lately. Through my own life and through the life of my clients.
See this picture?
Millions of women are going to be impacted because of this group of women @hungryforhappiness who came together to learn how to HEAL themselves and how to guide others healing process. It’s a privilege and an honor to be a part of this.
YOU IN? 🤗😍
“Be still and know that I am God” ⭐️Psalm 46:10
Sometimes I think this verse isn’t for me. I think that I am the exception and that somehow hustling for my worth is going to get me somewhere that matters. But the Lord kindly draws me in. God is a gentleman and patiently waits for me to come to him. In his presence, I am free to admit I haven’t got all the answers and I can’t get it right on my own. He already knows that and loves me anyways.
He calls me worthy, but not for the reasons the world might. My list of accomplishments are meaningless to him. He loves me because he created me. So I will be still and let him love me today. He knows how bad I need that even when I don’t. 💕

The purpose of this exercise is to relax the body, and switch the body from “fight or flight” mode to “rest and digest” mode. I promise you, it will work 🌟
Negativity runs too many peoples lives...don’t let it run, or even ruin yours‼️✨
Eating this ice cream for lunch WAS a healthy choice! 🍦😍
Why? Because I had some belly aching laughs by the beach feeling like a carefree kid with my favourite person while I ate it! ❤
Remember your health is not just about what you eat or thinking about the nutritional value of everything you put into your body. Your health is also what you do, what you listen to and who you hang around with. Everything you consume physically, mentally and emotionally will determine your health so be sure to make the best decision for you 🌟

An appreciative, shame-free & respectful way to honor and celebrate the well being of our elders, especially those who are People of Color, LGBTQIA+ and of diverse faiths in Indiana.
Full transparency: I am trying to address the social healing gap. Some of our elders who come to me for therapy are on fixed incomes and need their loving community to help them pay for consistent access to professional self-care options. They don’t want to switch to a lower cost therapist. I have tried.
Here’s the Social Healing Gap: A person who was 19 when MLK was killed is now 71. A person who was 20 at the Stone Wall Riot that led to what we now call PRIDE is now 70. It was illegal for Indigenous people to practice their faiths. It was unlawful for women to be on juries. And unless they were very lucky, there was no access to queer, trans, PoC, multi-faith therapists when they needed support. Now we have regular self care events & free mental heath Instagram accounts. They did not.
The elder trauma (and potential for incredible healing) our community members over 50 years old have, is powerful & incredible. Let’s make sure the folks who helped fight for our rights, created our music and gave us home-cooking, also get to invest in healthy relationships with themselves.
They are worthy of healing. Let’s love ‘em right.
