When our inner truth is so loud that we can’t find any more excuses or distractions to turn the volume down. When I started my journey towards metamorphosis, I thought learning a few breathing techniques, a few alternative modalities, a handful of meditations…

Being Flawed

As long as I can remember, I’ve been obsessed with self improvement. I’ve tried many things over the years to do better, be better, or feel better.

love and worth

Am I worthy of LOVE?? Many years ago, I found myself in a long-term relationship where I felt completely unappreciated. I bent over backwards and even sacrificed my own integrity in order to receive morsels of appreciation, but no matter what I did, I still felt unappreciated. I requested, I demanded, I whined – still, less than nothing. As I grew resentful that my beloved…
