Now is the time to heal old wounds & situations.
Let go of the burdens weighing on your heart and your mind.
Take careful & mindful steps towards making ammends.
Help others mend bridges.
Find common ground.
This is a time to be inspired by our indigenous brothers and sisters, who would gather all parties together to share in the peace pipe.
The peace pipe filled with sacred tobacco and herbs, in a circle of unity.
Sharing of the pipe was to provide respite from the discord, pause, assess calmly, and attempt to find a peaceful resolution.
This is a time for pausing, reflecting and choosing how you want to move forward with peace in your heart.
Ask yourself, would I rather be seen as "right", or do I want peace?
If you feel a strong urge, or need, to be right there is more for you to explore about yourself...and the judgements you carry about YOURSELF! That is blocking your path to peace & letting go.
Peace also takes great courage!
There are times to walk away.
AND there are times to stay and intentionally move forward with love and peace.
This is one of those times.
Transform the inner battle. It is worth the time and effort.
Acknowledge the acts as painful as they were, and then choose to forgive the person. Free yourself.
You know what you need to do.
The time is NOW.

A couple of weeks ago, many people would’ve have entitled my day as “ One of those days”…where “…everything goes sideways”.
What if everything went sideways to help me find the hidden gifts when the machine “malfunctions”?
My normal Wednesday morning schedule, involves yoga therapy with a client in a town 15 min away. I’m late leaving, after a comically muddled early start.
Despite my keen awareness that I will arrive a few minutes late for session, and the worldly conditioning of the guilt ridden outcome of “being late”, I am calmly making my way to town. Years ago, I would have been fretting. Quiet anxiety fuelling an seemingly ever present worry of ‘getting it wrong’.
Gratefully, through yoga, meditation, coaching and personal healing I have found great peace underneath the blanket of worry that used to rest upon my life. Great comfort flows through my practice of pausing, breathing and surrendering into a vibe of acceptance.
Then, I see “the cherries” flashing behind me?! WHAT? I wasn’t speeding…truth!! er-hem…for those who read this and know I can have a heavy foot by times. Truth!!
Hmmm… I am really going to be late now. AND my mental body jumped out of its peaceful place trying to rattle the machine into the malfunction mode. I’m not listening.
I Breathe and soften my body!
Within seconds, I recall that I was told I have a had light out the day before. And yes, that is in fact why the officer was stopping me. Warning given, and on my way to my lovely client waiting for me - 10 min late.
Hidden Gift #1
My client gets to see that all is not ‘perfect’ in my world, and that things can “go sideways” and yet life can carry on with lightness and peace.; which is often a challenge for this who gravitate to fear and worry when order is disrupted. I have the opportunity to model self-responsibility, calmness and humour when things appear to “go awry”.
Later that day, I collect my daughter from school early for an orthodontist appointment in a nearby town. We are at the orthodontist office, when I get a call from our Elementary school. My son missed his bus. Not his morning bus? His after school bus ~ HUH?!
I Breathe and soften my body!
My daughter, the ortho staff, and I all have a chuckle. Then one of the staff members mentioned that this happened to her when she was a kid. She said, she was trying to get things from her locker and she didn’t make it to the bus in time. Her face then changed. More solemn. Her next words still tinged with childhood pain. She said, “only difference is that my mother shouted at me non stop!” ; ‘You’re note even upset?!”. I shared my view of accepting things as they are, and choosing how I want to respond, rather than reacting out of habit or pattern. Sharing, that I still felt the energy rise up in my body when I got the call but it dissipated quickly because I paid attention to it and knew I had influence over how the rest would roll out. And a word of compassion to the lovely staff member who’s heart still carries the old wound of disapproval, shame and guilt, all these years later. Hope resounding for her to be able to let that go & step into self-love.
Back to the school we go, pick up my son, have a laugh, problem solve a “how to not do that again” - yup - it was a locker scenario.
Hidden Gift #2
Sharing a different perspective for dealing with stressful, or unplanned events. Modelling a more loving way to approach inconvenient mistakes. Offering compassion to a stranger, a fellow human with childhood memories touched by pain.
Hidden Gift #3
Extra alone time, on the drive back to the other town, with my 13 year old daughter. Who is now more accustomed to disappear into bedroom-dom!
Hidden Gift #4
Receive my son’s apology from a place of understanding and move on easily with the day. Peace instead of drama. Calm assertion of self-responsibility. Big picture perspective and problem solving.
An hour or so later, my son and I are back in the car, this time to take him back to town for gymnastics class. Third trip to town that day!
I drop him at the centre. Off to run some errands. Then, I realize……I forgot my cell phone! My daughter, albeit is 13yrs old, is now on her own and thinks I have my phone for contact when/if needed in case of an emergency.
I Breathe and soften my body!
Hmmmmm…pay phones are a thing of the past!
I end up asking to borrow a phone to call and let her know - she doesn’t pick up, because she been taught to not pick up if she doesn’t know the name/number. LOL.
I don’t wear a watch, ever. I ask stranger number 2 for the time and shared my situation. Another laugh and help at hand.
Hidden Gift #5
Asking for help from a stranger. Connection with another human being who gets the gift of helping someone out. It feels great to offer gestures of kindness and help. Even more so to those we have no known, or perceived, connection to ~ except that beautiful connection of shared humanity.
Hidden Gift #6
CELL PHONE FREE TIME! No further explanation needed.
Hidden Gift #7
Trust. Choosing to keep my mind in the reality of now and that my daughter is capable and confident to be on her own for 1.5hr. She is resourceful and would contact another family member, if she couldn’t reach me. All is fine, until it isn’t, and so far so good!
Back home again for an hour, then off to parent teacher meetings & I’m on time. Whoot!But…. meetings are running 30 min behind!
Another surge of energy enlivens me.
I Breathe and soften my body.
Where’ the gift?
Hidden Gift #8
Time spent sitting still. Quiet. Gorgeous pause within a momentum filled day.
The last gift, a wonderful impromptu chat with a fellow parent I rarely see. Which wouldn’t have happened if the meetings had been “on time”.
There are so many more intense and harrowing life events that could be occurring, and are for many across the globe. Stepping back, all of these minute dramas are simply a breath of wind with a bit of dust in it ~ not a tornado!
And yet, all is relative, and for many caught up in the machination of life these type of daily events wreak havoc on their peace and enjoyment of each day.
So, if you relate in even the smallest of ways, I invite you to consider…..
Are you stopping to Breathe & Soften your body, when things don’t go as planned?
Are you letting the machine of the mind kick auto-pilot into high gear & “over”react?
Or are you pausing to choose how you want to respond?
Who are you trying to please, or prove something to?
Who are you mimicking? Is there another way possible, for YOU?
Have you stopped to look for the gift?
Where are the hidden gifts in your everyday life?
Many treasures are waiting to be found by you!
February 2018, I had the opportunity to visit El Salvador for the first time with my partner. He has been travelling there for almost 15 years, primarily for surfing and has also set an intention of supporting the Central American countries that are often relegated to the back rows of the global bus due to complicated socio-political and economic entanglements.
A few lessons unfolded for me from the very start. The divine feminine rose up within me, helping me to merge with the allowing that felt like my greater truth. Inspired by the divine feminine ideology, I was invited once again to face old patterns of guilt, the need for earned permission, approval in the eyes of others, and justifying a ‘purpose’ for the trip - that would in the end serve others, as that is the will of Spirit. The goddess within helped me claim my desire to embrace this opportunity with excitement, deservingness and lightness. No justification needed. No predetermined use of this experience as fodder for serving others. The fierce, yet compassionate energy of the divine feminine a source of great solace for me. Little did I know, I would be dialoguing with my inner goddess to such great depths as this trip unfolded. My inner compass re-directed with her firm gentle hand, back to allowing and receiving, over and over again. Observing myself with compassion and curiosity, my new normal for the past number of years, helped to keep my inner foundation strong as I allowed whatever experiences were being drawn my way.
This was the first trip in 4 years that I had taken purely for rest and to purposely unplug from my blossoming professional life! Travelling together, was also an opportunity for my partner and I to connect and explore our relationship in a new way. Later in life relationships such as mine, as a single mom and entrepreneur, can result in a lot of moments of connection truncated by daily life responsibilities. Flow of hours, into days, with my love in a new country where he could take over and I could drift into the background hues was just what I needed and wanted. For too long had I been “managing it all”; before my divorce, after my divorce and in true Capricorn style through the re-creation of my life as I knew it.
All of my travel prior to El Salvador had been for training of one sort, or another. I have been devoting all my energies to my personal and professional growth in order to serve humanity in the ways most important to me ~ on a heart and soul level through my burgeoning business. I am ever so grateful for all the opportunities I have both created, and those that flowed to me as a result of my dedication, clear focus and deep listening to my soul path. And more truth be told, I needed a break. I needed to be away from everything and everyone familiar. I needed to sit back and allow the reigns to be held lovingly and competently by someone else. I needed to be still; to read; to nap; to be held; to move slowly; to sense a new landscape of mother earth and her people. All of this, and more, came to me in beautiful and in some most tragic ways over the course of our time in El Salvador.
I am a very energy aware human. I always have been, since childhood. Aware of the energies held in the lands, the people, the natural spaces….the vibes of the individual and the collective.
El Salvador spoke to me in ways I was not prepared for….in magical and heart wrenching ways.
As I work with energy healing, not only with humans, but with the land itself I realized my call to El Salvador was not only a 3D shout out for a break. It was a deep resonant call from the ancestors of the lands of El Cuco. And it was a tragic bellowing from the divine feminine falling into the abyss of hopeless vacant sight. I did have time for the reprieve I needed and within that space, the raging goddess inside me swam to the surface of the bloody waters bathing the El Salvadoranian women.
I live life most immensely and intensely. It is both a gift and a burden by times. I no longer ignore the signs, the messages, the calling, the purpose of this aspect of my life. I can no longer hide the Shamaness that feels and connects to the wiles of this multidimensional existence. I am awake. I no longer sleep through my life. Nor do I ever want to again ~ even if the pain threatens to shatter all that I know. It can. It will. And I will rise again with greater knowing, greater love, greater support and light to share. It will always accompany “best laid plans” because there is always a depth to the path of life which unfolds as we step forward upon it. Not before.
El Salvador opened another channel of life force for me, through words….
After spending a week in El Tunco and La Libertad, observing, listening, and sensing, we left for El Cuco…a remote area where all of what I was taking in, settled into my heart and I erupted with fierce goddess bile through my writing.
It was also there I was comforted by the opportunity to be of service to the land and the ancestors who called. Knowing at some point I would share these experiences with those guided to grow with them and hold them with care.
"When the trees called”, is where I share more of the incredible land healing in El Cuco. With love and reverence you are welcome to read about it in my upcoming blog post.
Below, is the poetry, the writing that sprang from within the divine feminine volcano.
The women, and men, of this Central American country like many others, have lost their way. Patriarchal wounds fester with increasing poverty, staccato like global manipulation and impertinence.
Sadly, it is a country with high domestic and sexual violence, un-haltering gender inequality; ignorance, teenage pregnancy; religious piety, over consumption and socio-political corruption at its worst.
It affected me greatly. I had to find a way to express what was seething beneath the proverbial surface all around me. May it evoke courage and compassion from within your depths and as a result, may you send your prayers, to the men, women, and children of El Salvador and across the world, still wiping the sleep from their eyes and hearts.
Ancient truths & knowledge waiting to be unearthed.
Waiting in the dust.
Rising to the surface, yet overlooked.
Broad smiles. Glimpses of spark once blazing with possibilities.
Slow. Hot. Encumbered.
Working through the maze, over & over.
Not ‘noticing' the ladders? Blinded by hardship. Breeding complacency.
Rise not heart of truth.
Dangle your roots on the disparate topsoil.
More eyes. More mouths. More feet. Yet...
As if freedom to create, lies only within the loins.
The great Ceiba call to you.
The wild offerings of the sea whistle your names.
The terra sings out, for you to break through....the callouses of your history.
Reclaim your tenderness.
Reclaim your breath.
Reclaim your strength.
There is time. Are you listening?
Shards of history scatter the dusty soil.
Wood & wire separate.
Metal & machismo 'protect what could be summoned for great destiny...great birthing.
Dulled roars of the lioness.
Resilient eyes, quietly they watch the game.
Same players. Same rules.
Sitting on the bench, never to be called.
Womb spaces filled with overbearing seed...
Quell the desire to leap from the bench. Corralled & branded.
Watch the tower of power crash below, swept out to sea, tossed and returned to shore....in bits.
Gather quickly...so no eyes piece together the puzzle of shame.
Stand tall. Be bigger, wider...spread out like the arms of An octopus.
Grab all that you can, so that you can feel your girth.
Be Seen. Be heard. For all that you are not.
Machete the masks of violence, with devotion.
Fragment the faces of fear and shame.
Bathe them in chamomile & the rose blood of the Jimaica.
In the belly of Panchamama, the children go hungry.
Nurture the wounds into New buds of potential.
Band together the ropes of hope, acceptance, sisterhood & brotherhood.
Respect will fuel your cells.
Summon the Divine Mother, not from within the church walls, but from within you.
You are Sacred.
You are Important.
You are Not Forgotten.
You are loved.
Recall it in your bones, your blood.
You Belong. Together.
The sky dissolves & takes the illusion of prison with it.
It is what YOU believe to be true.
Be brave. Be bold. See the Unseen.
Why wait any longer?
You need not be told, or be forced, unless you allow pestilence to rule your senses.
Throw your branding irons into the molten depths.
Harness the fires in the belly of the beast & rise like the Phoenix.
Become the Sun Gods once again.
Wed Grandmother Moon in a ceremony of cosmic ecstasy.
Eclipse your beauty, your gifts, your truths, your belonging...together.
