Utilizing all the tools you resonate with to map your personal journey and heal our world
Wound Mapping Practices
The practice of tracking what is going on in our bodies, hearts and minds comes in many forms. There is no one right way to do this for every person. One way to go about it is to try a variety of different methods and see how they fit you. Another way is to do it intuitively, with the guidance of your ancestors and spirit guides for support as you navigate the depths of your psyche-being-body.
We are like sponges, absorbing nutrients and information from our experiences no matter what route you take in your life path. As with any practice, trust, immerse, dissolve, release, rebirth and return your focus again and again and again. As I have mentioned previously, mindfulness, meditation and a beginner’s mind is a helpful base structure that will provide strong roots for you to continue to grow and thrive no matter what curve balls life throws at you. Continue to breath and return to this home base as you go deeper within, spiraling deeper in cycles to discover and map your treasures buried there.
Breathing-Feeling Presence Practices & Mindfulness Meditation Part 2 & 3
Welcome back for more letting go to let love grow! First of all, I want to thank you for the work you are doing to be more present in your awareness. This work you do not only feeds your soul but creates a garden for all life to grow along with you. We are co-creative weavers of this world we live in. When you take the time for yourself in this way, to feel and be all that you are, you give your community, your family, your partner, the gift of your deepening presence.
I recorded these two practices as one video but have separated them below so that you may do them separately at any time. The first is a mindfulness meditation practice, while the second is a breathing-feeling presence practice which very, very gently takes you deeper into the consciousness of your body-being.

Let go ~ Let LOVE Grow
Breathing-Feeling Presence Practices & Mindfulness Meditation (Part 1 of 3)
This has been my mantra the last couple of weeks. In this video I candidly share with you about my current mindfulness and meditation practice.
Working with Womb and Hara to Awaken Feminine Consciousness
I find it fitting to share this again now as we move into the old traditional sacred union of Winter and Summer who dance and weave a balance together to create the re-birth of life with Spring (read more about the Gaelic May Day festival of Beltane, "the mouth of fire", here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beltane)
A lot of healing work - and spiritual knowledge - is experiential, requiring first hand sensory input to really understand and integrate the teachings. There is so much to learn and know even after years of learning and practice. What I share here is my personal translation of some of the womb awakening understanding I have gleaned during my journey studying, practicing and teaching womb awakening during the last approximately 6 years, as my teachers Dr. Azra Bertrand and Seren Bertrand have taught and written about it.

Trust in this Miraculous Body
Journeying Shamanically to Retrieve Wisdom from Within: A Guided Meditation Video
Lately, I have been journeying with control and trust. Control is insidiously present in my family life, I realized when I stopped to take a closer look. About 10 years ago I made a conscious choice to open my heart. As I began to work with this opening, I saw more clearly how much of my inner operations were controlled by an inner Judge. This law enforcer had opinions about everything and everyone. I was not so much surprised as I was ready to acknowledge this aspect of how I interacted with myself and the world. A decade later, after years of therapy and training and apprenticing, shedding layers of armor and masks, here I am again looking at yet another even deeper layer of how much I cling to control of the world around me and the places where I still do not trust. Two different things and yet related. When I let go of Control, can I Trust that I will be okay, or that my kids will be okay, or that a situation -whatever it is- will be okay? Am I ready to open my heart more fully, to take freedom to another level and let go of control, that oppressive influence deeply embedded and embodied within me?
Which brings me to this Full Moon offering. There are so many tools and ways to unravel threads interwoven into our being that do not truly serve freedom or life. I have found myself being drawn back to sitting in meditation more often, to breathe and create spaces of consciousness to become more aware of sovereign choice and observation of all that is at play in this moment that is not of this moment. Breathing into this body and noticing where there is flow and where there is holding. I will talk more about meditation next month - well, that is part of my scheduled plan. As we know, Spirit may have other plans, as She has this month. What I am offering this moon cycle is yet another way to come into the presence of our awareness, to breathe into our body-being and listen deeply, to Trust the wisdom within this miraculous vessel.

Let Go, Let Grow
Working with The Luminous Blueprint, a Process of Manifestation as Spiritual Work
The Luminous Blueprint is something I originally envisioned sharing with you later this month. As it turns out, Spirit directed me to share it with you now to take advantage of yet another potent portal for seed-planting a new cycle of beginnings. This particular technique-tool was developed and shared by Julie Winter. I received this gift from her as a student of The Helix Training Program she founded over a decade ago. In this short video, I share a general overview of this process, giving you all need to start bringing your visions forth from the luminous realm into this material plane of existence, for the good of all.
Healing the Shadow Wounds of Western Civilization Which Perpetuate Wounding Upon All Life-Beings
Our American Culture is one of myriad gifts and blessings - traditions that have come from around the world with beliefs, Gods, Goddesses, practices and rituals that nurture, sustain and keep us connected to the Earth and the family system and the collective community. These valuable threads weave us together in rhythmic cycles of gathering in celebration and sorrow.
