Allowing Abundance

waterfall Ty

I’ve been thinking about abundance lately; about what it actually means, what my relationship is to it and how I can align myself with an attitude of it. A-bun-dance (noun) a very large quantity of something. When I reflect on my own journey with abundance, I can see the shifts I’ve made in my attitude to money and possessions and in my relationship with myself. For most of my life I have operated out of the idea of lack. Growing … Keep reading…

You’ve already made it. Here’s Why!

Ecstatic Motion

About a month ago I was struggling with feelings of ‘not enoughness,’ and I emphasize the word ‘struggle’ because what is so uncomfortable about negative emotion is that it is simply not natural for us to feel that way. This is a new revelation for me. It’s amazing the difference a month makes (or a day, or a moment), because I came out of that struggle by embracing what is true: that we have all made it by very virtue … Keep reading…

‘Tis the Season to Breathe Deeply

Snow angel

We have less than a week left in Whitefish, Montana and are so glad we made it up here to this beautiful place. The town is now covered in a blanket of snow which makes it look even sweeter. It has great restaurants, coffee shops, a second hand bookstore and a crystal store called ‘The Rock Shop.’ Last week I added this baby (a Montana Amethyst) to my small crystal family and I gotta say, I am quite enamored with … Keep reading…

The Beatles’ Meditation (Let It Be)

You are souls

I made another video last night in which I shared about a practice which helps to cultivate self acceptance and peace. I call it ‘The Beatles’ Meditation’ because of the mantra I use throughout it: ‘Let It Be.’ Thank you for watching! I forgot to mention that it may be beneficial to close your eyes for this practice. I also wanted to get this up today because there is a full moon tonight. It is a good time to perform … Keep reading…

Taking off the mask to talk about Self Care

self-care selfy

Last night I prepared myself a hot bath complete with lavender oil, burning incense and candles. It’s become a bit of a ritual for me and I relish these moments of self-care in which I honor and nurture my body and soul. As I mentioned in my last post, I am writing a book about discovering the beauty of our imperfect journeys as a pathway to healing and transformation. I am loving this work because it speaks to the deepest … Keep reading…

Within or Without: My Spiritual Journey on the Road

One step

Before we began this road trip through the US, I had a few concerns about losing my inner balance. The past year has been full of new experiences, new challenges and a few big (painful) lessons. As a result, the last six months in Latin America were a self-imposed spiritual retreat for me. Through the pain of realising how I was relying on my external circumstances to make me happy, I completely surrendered to a daily spiritual practice of meditation … Keep reading…

Life is bright in Montana

Lake McDonald

We came to Montana because of Facebook. I put a post on my personal page asking if anyone in the US or Canada required house sitting over the winter and my friend Wendy responded, telling us we could stay in her house in Whitefish for a month before Christmas. She and her husband Bob were planning to return to Playa del Carmen, Mexico (where we met) in mid November and asked if we would like to visit with them for … Keep reading…

Evolving in Recovery

Tommy Rosen book signing

During my stay in San Francisco, I celebrated five years of recovery. To put it plainly, this means I have been completely free from alcohol and drugs for five years. (but not cupcakes) Five years ago, my addictive relationship with alcohol brought me to a place of crisis. Wayne Dyer explains the term ‘crisis’ to be a situation in which a person does not have the resources to cope. I did not have the resources to cope with my situation. … Keep reading…

Unexpectedly Inspired on the Trinity River

Trinity river flipped

“So where are we going Jane?” Tyrhone asks, his finger poised over the touchscreen of the GPS. “Umm… well, I am not completely sure exactly where it is… near the Trinity River somewhere in a tiny town called ‘Big Flat’?” He looks at me with the sort of expression which says that does not help me. We have come to rely heavily on our GPS on this road trip, so much so that we have given her a name. It’s … Keep reading…

Embracing the Wild Woman Within

Sarah Somewhere Wild

It was a gift which arrived at just the right time (as all good ones do). A book; a real-life-made-with-paper-book which carried the weight of the message inside it. It arrived during our stay in San Francisco from a kind, thoughtful friend and I relished the process of unwrapping it, reading the accompanying message, “All intriguing women should read this book,” and palming the pages in anticipation of the adventure ahead. “We are all filled with a longing for the … Keep reading…
