The demon frazzle

Stagnant energy filled her soul. Exhaustion permeating ever bone in her body. Day after day, all the same. She was frazzled. That’s the best word to describe it. Anxiety and emotional turmoil finally beat her down so that she frayed at the edges. It had a name. As with any demon, knowing it’s name gave … More The demon frazzle

Fighting destiny, letting life happen on life’s terms

Exhaustion plagued every moment. She slept but was greeted with her mind’s twisted visions. On awakening, she never felt awake. She struggled through each day, being constantly pushed back into the grips of exhaustion. She was so tired. When would it get better? The loneliness had it’s claws around her. No matter how hard she … More Fighting destiny, letting life happen on life’s terms

New beginnings

A year ago her life felt hopeless. She was lost, adrift at sea. Today she has conquered many fears, faced her past, and branched out. She faces new challenges as mountains to climb. Hard work, yes, but the high of reaching the summit pushes her forward. She can and will conquer all challenges.

Her cozy cell—self imprisonment of the heart

She’d always thought she wore her heart on her sleeve, trusting too easily, jumping into love too quickly, willing to believe the best in everyone. She was brutally honest, didn’t hide her defects, owned her mistakes. She dropped everything to be there for those she loved. She gave everything she had to her loved ones. … More Her cozy cell—self imprisonment of the heart

Now We Live

Dark memories, dripping through the cracks. Walls built up, starting to crumble. She was waking up. That look in other’s eyes when they asked her tale, the pity. She was once told she was “a brave soldier.” She hated that. She hated being told that. She wasn’t brave. She was like countless others who had … More Now We Live

Embracing negative emotions—welcoming and accepting bad moods instead of fighting them.

This morning I woke up grumpy, for no apparent reason. This happens more regularly than I would like. I woke up and immediately everything bothered me—it’s too hot, my head hurts, my dog won’t stop standing where I’m trying to walk, the kitchen is dirty, the roll of toilet paper in the bathroom is getting … More Embracing negative emotions—welcoming and accepting bad moods instead of fighting them.

Universe—I release to you all that no longer serves me. Please guide me on my path to manifesting my best life.

This post is going to be a little different than my previous posts. This morning, I listened to a live stream by the Manifestion Babe. She brought up one of my favorite practices of late and I want to share my practice with you all—releasing what no longer serves me and inviting that which helps … More Universe—I release to you all that no longer serves me.

Wait– I get to decide what I believe? A journey to spirituality and freedom.

The girl was raised in a loosely Christian household. She went to church with her family as a child, went to Sunday school, participated in Christmas plays, and prayed. She never felt hate in her childhood church, and to this day, this church holds a special place in her heart. She sold painted rocks to … More Wait– I get to decide what I believe?

And she flourished, a response to 2012— The darkness within a 19 year-old girl’s mind. Written 8 years later.

The demons began to retreat. She had found a new, stronger voice. The voice of self-acceptance and understanding. She was not cursed, nor possessed, but deeply hurt—hurt by a wound she had never known how to heal. For years the demons whispered, then screamed that she wasn’t good enough—never would be. She believed them, for … More And she flourished, a response to 2012— The darkness within a 19 year-old girl’s mind. Written 8 years later.
