The Wisdom and Gifts of our Crone Archetype

Crone. I say this word and women cringe. Definition: old hag, usually thin and ugly Interestingly enough, when it comes to archetypes, the closest archetype many psychologists relate to the crone in men is the wizard. Wizard sounds a lot more powerful, doesn’t it? No negative connotation, just magical power. I want to change your Read More

Sit with the Feelings, Not the Stories

Life. it’s beautiful AND it’s hard. Ever notice that some of the greatest things are some of the hardest things? Graduations mean an achievement (ending) and also the beginning of the unknown for many of us.  It’s exciting and scary. Having a baby is the end of one stage of life and the beginning of Read More

The Message Of Inner Conflict

Over the weekend, a friend of mine was making a big decision and she seemed, well, distraught. She said she feels as though no choice was going to be right because every answer seemed to come with a prong of pain or dissatisfaction – to the point where she was in paralyzing anxiety. Sound familiar? Read More

Core Beliefs can be changed. Start with Compassion..

Last week we talked about perception and the trickiness around interpreting how we see what we see. Someone emailed me and asked, “how do I see my perception? It’s not like I can take off my glasses and see what shade I am wearing.” That is so true. As unfortunate as it is that we Read More

Are you seeing clearly?

We think we see clearly. In fact, we do SEE clearly. It’s the interpretation and recall that are our biggest issues. Our brains make up details from old thoughts and experiences to cover gaps in our memory. It goes for criminal investigations and it goes for personal growth. Let me explain. If you are a Read More

Gratitude practices are a lot more than listing out things you are grateful for. While that’s definitely a start, the gratitude practices that scientists measure are often a little more detailed than that. So if you haven’t been getting the results or it feels like they have become apathetic, here’s why. First the example with Read More

Falling into the Feminine

Today I want to talk about divine feminine energy. I don’t think I understood it until that last few years and it’s still unfolding for me. I’ve asked myself all kinds of questions about this. I’ve looked at a lot of the judgments I have about feminine energy and why. However, what I’ve experienced in Read More

There may be many archetypes that can be creating anxiety depending on what’s happening in our lives and in the stories we started many years ago. However, there is one archetype that needs to Read More

Anxiety, Ritual and Ceremony

When I was doing podcasts for Inviting Shift, I did this one with one of my favorite humans, Lynn Trotta. She shared with us the magic of reducing our anxiety by including more ritual and ceremony in our lives. Whether you consider yourself religious, spiritual or none of the above, I think you’ll find ritual Read More

Setting Goals that Feel Rewarding

Goal-setting. Why do we make it so hard? Often because we’re doing what we think we’re supposed to do or expected to do. We don’t really tune into what we truly want – because no one really ever told us that those bold ideas we have are for us to explore. Instead we were told Read More
