Full Moon in Libra

✨🌕🌕🌕🌕✨ Welcome to the full moon in libra this Friday evening. The second full moon in libra of the year, the sign that strives for BALANCE. And this specific direction of the moon in libra invites us to examine the balance in our relationships, especially the one with ourselves. 🌕 What’s your relationship with yourself right now? Are you feeling balanced? Or do you need to go softer on yourself? Or perhaps the reverse, do you need to push yourself? 🌕 On moon evenings one of my rituals is to journal. This evening’s focus and intention is on my relationships but mostly that with myself. There are some areas I’m being WAY too hard on myself but there’s also a few I need to just push myself ha...

Enough

“And sometimes, you are going to be as fierce as a dragon armed in scales of impenetrable gold and sometimes you are going to be as vulnerable as a lamb, soft and comforting in newborn wool. Both versions of you are needed. Both versions of you are beautiful.” ~Nikita Gil It’s so easy to feel less than enough when we’re not at our best. When you know this isn’t your best self, can you trust me that you are ENOUGH in that moment just as much as when you are living your best life? When I’m moody or short with loved ones I feel so low and far beyond enough. I feel like when I feel well rested, strong and kind that is the “real” me. But the further I study the more I believe that even that “best life me” isn’t me. Who ...

Confidence in a Bottle

Let me introduce you to one of my little secrets.  ✨Whisper is a spicy yet sweet, musky yet floral oil perfect to be worn as a signature scent. Why? Because this distinctive blend combines with an individual’s chemistry creating your own unique scent. When I feel less than myself or can’t feel “right” with an outfit I reach for whisper. It’s the little magic sauce of confidence that makes me feel sexy and sultry and right back to myself.🖤 Despite its complexity, whisper blends well with others. So if you prefer it in a diffuser it’s wonderful with the drop of wild orange or even balance. If you’re looking to inspire some romance diffusing whisper with a little passion is my favorite diffuser love potion. Place whisper on your ...

Building Strength or Holding Tension

What does it feel like when you’re holding tension in your body? I know the minute I start to stress about something I tense my muscles in my neck and back, pulling my shoulders up near my ears and rolling my shoulder heads forward. I either breathe shallow and quick or I hold my breath completely. Whether I’m driving in traffic or stressing about something I hold tension in those familiar places and of course my mind is racing or filling with dread.  What does it feel like to build strength? I fee...

Nature's Chill Pill

Let me introduce you to a little friend of mine, Bergamot.💛 A spicy citrus scent with a little hint of floral, it’s a powerhouse for emotional support. The main chemistry components of bergamot include limonene, terpinene, and linalool which are what contribute to the oils unique ability to uplift as well as calm. So if you suffer from panic attacks or anxiety listen up!  I use this oil in my diffuser or even a drop on my pulse points on days when I feel those familiar, panicky grips or that anxiety cloud building behind me. I used to doubt how effective aromatic use of oils can be, I mean they smell nice but can it a...

Muddy Water

“They muddy the water to make it seem deep.” Friedrich Nietzsche The water can become clouded, making it hard to see our direction, our path or even to formulate a clear thought. But to truly feel the depth of this quote I had to ask myself the question, who are “they?” Is they, society, others around us? Making it hard to see our true selves? No. Look further. What if “they” was the ego. The ego, constantly convincing you that you are not good enough. The ego trying to “muddy” or distort your view of yourself. Make you doubt. Make you forget… Forget what? What you are, which is LOVE. You are whole. How do you clear ...
