suck it up nancy

I was laying on the floor crying. I had decided that I was a floor person now and this was my new life. I was ready to give up. The husband hovered and the hospital inquiry was hanging in the air. Absolutely not, I told him.. this was not my first rodeo. Days before, myContinue reading “suck it up nancy”

some things never change

If I had to say that I had one vice (other than wine, and chocolate, and plants, and wanting to bring home every visible stray cat..), it would have to be skincare. I am a hoardy, splurgy, product obsessive skank.. which is amusing because I also find it hard to stick to a routine. TheseContinue reading “some things never change”

what I have learned from the fat cat

My voluptuous polar bear sized beautiful baby boy has taught me so much these past few months. He is the most chill cat that I have ever had and even though he has been sick for over nine months with no clear diagnosis, he really gives no ducks. He still enjoys his day to day..Continue reading “what I have learned from the fat cat”

sacred sun

A few new moons ago had me pulling “worth” from the moon deck – teaching your inner negative Nancy to be more supportive, and freeing yourself from critical thoughts towards body and worth. I honestly felt that I didn’t need that work. However, as I took the time to pay more attention to how IContinue reading “sacred sun”

universal mirror

Someone once said to me that I was a mirror.. that sometimes people see in me things of themselves they aren’t prepared for reflected back. This, I believe, may have been them eluding to the fact that I tend to ask the uncomfortable questions.. or I used to. These days I am still doing myContinue reading “universal mirror”

crystals are the bones of the earth

”Where we believe what is given to us by the earth is all we really need to live happy and healthy lives” – Tamed Wild Years ago I wrote on feeling the draw towards working with crystals after years of being a rock/shell/feather dedicant. I had been picking up one here and there, but with soContinue reading “crystals are the bones of the earth”

the garden sacred

My garden has always been a sacred space to me.. I find it to be a very liminal place and you will most days find me puttering about talking to the plantlings. I often meditate or do ritual here.. leaving offerings frequently for the garden spirits. Probably most sacred to me are the evenings spentContinue reading “the garden sacred”

the little ritual of letting go

One thing I am learning is that I have to pay better attention to what my body is telling me. I also need to learn to let go a bit and better embrace saying no, which often makes me feel guilty. Even now, learning my new normal, I tend to overdo things. I spread myselfContinue reading “the little ritual of letting go”

full moon revisit

Since I have been fine tuning and timing my manifestation work to the moon’s cycles, I spent some time in the quiet of the last full moon mulling over the (almost) completion of my last  work, which has been very productive – calling in supportive, healthy relationships. The universe continues to throw me some challengesContinue reading “full moon revisit”
