about me

We create our life. Our vibration, energy, thoughts, intentions, and actions all make up and determine our reality. Every moment of our life we decide whether we will respond with happiness or misery and love or fear. For much of my life, I responded with fear and misery. Fear, misery, and pain were my cloak and my story — something I could hide behind so that I did not have to try at life or take responsibility.

It was through spiritual practices such as meditation, yoga and Buddhism that I was able to see beyond these stories and low frequency energy states. I began to realize the incredible power I had in making my life what I wanted it to be. Day after day of practice allowed me to shed more and more layers of shame and fear into love and strength. Mindfulness has saved my life and all I want to do is share it with as many people as possible.

I clutch my dreams close to my diaphragm.  I hope sometimes when you read me, you feel them whispering against your ear. Dream with me. Dream of a world where we can just be. Be ourselves. Be without need. Be happy. Be love. Be free. Be safe. Be enough. Sometimes I wish I could live in a constant state of dreaming. Maybe that’s why I love reading and writing so much; they take me there.

I have worked as a journalist and have also had my poetry and short stories published in various journals. I write very occasionally on this site and encourage you to also check out my main site  to learn more about my offerings and to read more of my work. I hope you enjoy your journey into my writing world.
