Do You Resist Healing?

I get it.

You want it to be quick, easy, and cost effective. You think you don’t have the time, energy, or money to invest in yourself.

But you’re smart: you know healing takes time – and effort and money.

Back in the mid-1990s, when I couldn’t handle my anxiety, depression, body pain, and chronic illnesses any longer, I spent a couple of years talking to different therapists, going to different doctors and specialists, and trying different medications, looking for the magic bullet – the answer to my healing.

None of it worked.

I was resisting healing.

I wanted the therapists to just fix me.

I wanted the doctors to just fix me.

I wanted the medications to just fix me.

I wanted the specialists to find a label to describe me (because I was certain my problem wasn’t something normal) and then to just fix me.

When I’d land in the hospital with severe chest pain and heart arrhythmia, debilitating migraines, and other physical pain and illness, I’d want someone to just fix me.

Most of the time, the conversation always turned to my anxiety and depression – even when there were real, measurable physical symptoms present.

Well, no-fucking-duh! I had a problem with anxiety…and I. WANTED. SOMEONE. TO. JUST. FIX. ME.

Guess what? The only person who could fix me was me.

It took me decades to figure that out, all the while suffering more anxiety, more depression, more panic attacks, more chronic pain, more chronic illnesses, and more disasters in my life.

And all the while, I was resisting healing.

Why? Because I wanted someone or something outside myself to provide a solution – a quick, easy, cost-effective solution.

Even when I turned to alternative medicine and holistic wellness in the late 1990s, I was still looking outside myself for the answer, albeit in a much healthier way.

I wanted the woman who first taught me to meditate to just fix me.

I wanted the woman who first taught me yoga to just fix me.

I wanted the man who first helped me see my divine nature – after years of resisting anything to do with spirituality because of my early religious programming – to just fix me.

When my whole life collapsed a few years ago, and I finally took responsibility for my own healing, things finally changed.

Why? Because I faced it head on and did the hard work – I invested time, energy, and money in my own well-being – and I added an invaluable component to my wealth of holistic healing knowledge: working to heal on a spiritual level, a soul level.

We’re designed to heal ourselves, both on the physical level and on the soul level. We’re meant to create healing magic for ourselves (and for others).

But it takes deep work…and time and effort…and that’s where we get tripped up. Our culture has done us a grave disservice by promoting the false idea that there is any magic bullet or quick fix.

Do you resist healing, too? Here’s how you’ll know:

If you spend a lot of time wanting things to be different, your body to heal, your emotions to calm, your mind to settle, your relationships to improve, your finances to be better, your lifestyle to change…

and a) you tell yourself that *something/someone* outside yourself holds the answer, b) you tell yourself there is a single, simple solution that’ll fix everything, and/or c) you always make excuses about why you can’t invest time, energy, and/or money in yourself…

you’re resisting healing, no ifs, ands, or buts about it.

Take it from the woman who threw herself under the bus for everything and everyone for decades, the resistance to doing something for yourself is proof positive you’ve got some negative beliefs around your worth, deservedness, and value that are sabotaging you over and over.

And I can guarantee that it’s showing up in your health and in your life in a negative way.

True healing – deep, abiding healing – comes from within.
You already know how to heal – it’s an innate power that’s divinely sourced, and I promise that you have access to it: you just need to get reconnected to your own healing magic!

Love & Blessings,

How the Slow-Moving Planets are Giving You the Opportunity to Transform

Several of the planetary bodies that govern the various energies influencing our Universal cycles are quick moving. You already know that the sun changes Zodiac signs once a month, and that the moon moves through its phases about every 28 days. Some other planets – like Mars, Venus, and Mercury – move along pretty swiftly, too.

Others move much slower, some taking years to progress through a Zodiac sign, and even though the quick-moving planetary bodies affect us in swift day-to-day ways, it’s the slow-moving planetary bodies that have huge and lasting impact.

So let’s talk about what’s happening with some of the slower-moving planets right now.

Back on January 27, 2008 – right at the start of the last 9-year Universal cycle – Pluto entered Capricorn and it’ll stay there until January of 2024. When Pluto is transiting Capricorn, the energy affects foundational stuff like money, power, and independence. It’s a cycle of deep transformation on both personal and Universal levels.

Next, on March 11, 2011, Uranus entered Aries and it’ll stay there until March 7, 2019. When Uranus is transiting Aries, the energy affects how we express ourselves as individuals. It’s a cycle of radial shift in independence on both personal and Universal levels.

Then, on February 3. 2012 – in a 5 Universal year, the pivotal change year in the last 9-year Universal cycle – Neptune entered Pisces and it’ll stay there until 2026. When Neptune is transiting Pisces it’s at home – Neptune is the natural ruler of Pisces, so the energy is magnified. The energy affects major spiritual concepts like oneness, transcendence of the ego, and collective consciousness. It’s a cycle of connecting to one’s Higher Self and moving out of earth-bound limitations.

Finally, on May 9, 2017 – at the start of our new 9-year Universal cycle – the North Node (or True Node) entered Leo and it’ll stay there until early November. When the True Node is in Leo, the energy affects how we express ourselves as individuals, much like Uranus in Aries, particularly shifting us out of group-think mentality into thinking for ourselves. It’s a cycle of getting out of constant mental churning and learning to go with what your heart tells you.

With all of this going on under the surface of the faster-moving stuff, I think you can see why we’re in a time of such personal and global shift.

You’ll want to pay close attention to these four major influences as we progress through this 11 Gateway Year. They’ll be turbo-charging transformation opportunities Universally, and if any of them are particularly emphasized in your own Astro-Numerology profile, their influence will be intensified for you.

It’s Time for a New Paradigm of Women’s Wellness

There’s so much at stake for women right now.

It’s a critical time: we’ve been operating under systems that don’t serve our highest good for far too long and were suffering the effects in epidemic proportions.

It’s time for a new paradigm of women’s wellness – one that supports our total wellness; physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and financial. It’s time to step out of a masculine energy model that doesn’t support the natural ways of women, and into a feminine energy model that nourishes our whole being.

We all came here with infinite potential – a soul intention – and it got buried under layers of programming, false and limiting beliefs, traumatic experiences, unprocessed emotions, and cultural expectations.

We were born into a world that has operated under a masculine energy model for centuries. This isn’t about male versus female – this is about source energy.

Masculine energy is linear, penetrating, action-oriented, goal-aligned, competitive energy.

Feminine energy is receptive, nurturing, compassionate, creative, intuitive energy.

When women moved out into the world in a much greater way a few decades ago, of necessity, they stepped into operating under the masculine energy model: goal-focused doing and competition.

Our world is geared almost entirely toward masculine energy – competition in manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, medicine, insurance, finances, sports, media, politics, advertising, lifestyle and appearance – and it has worn women to a frazzle.

It’s lead to sexualizing, labeling, devaluing and disrespecting women, and to creating barriers between women.

We’ve been oppressed by masculine energy, we’ve repressed our trauma, emotions, and grief, and we’ve suppressed our genuine nature…

and it has embodied itself as chronic anxiety, depression, pain, illness, exhaustion and overwhelm.

It’s caused us to doubt our sanity, our worth…our very existence. It’s a paradigm that must change if women are going to get out from under the avalanche of chronic pain, chronic illness, chronic anxiety, depression, overwhelm and exhaustion that is paralyzing us.


I come from a generational line of women who’ve had a pattern of abusive relationships and chronic anxiety. My biological father was a very violent man, and I classically got into more than one abusive relationship myself.

Because of it, I suffered decades of chronic anxiety, depression and widespread body pain, along with a host of other dis-eases: migraines, premenstrual dysphoric disorder, irritable bowel syndrome, and endometriosis, to name a few.

I spent my teens rebelling, my 20s repressing, my 30s imploding, and my 40s healing – and that began first with Western medication and psychotherapy, and then became a personal investigative journey into wholly living that took place over the last 18 years.

It was a long and winding road – and I sabotaged myself more than once along the way. The summer I turned 50 began a whole new journey for me, a journey that’s moved from taking back my personal healing power to stepping into my calling and creating a movement of indomitable women.

In the years’ since, I’ve talked with hundreds of women – through surveys, in forums and Facebook groups, in podcast and summit interviews, in private calls; as I did, I began to see a pattern.

I discovered it wasn’t just me who had experienced trauma, anxiety, depression, loss, illness and dis-ease…

And it wasn’t just me who felt like an outsider, a misfit, like I’d made too many mistakes…

And it wasn’t just me who had come to a crossroads – to a decision point to live life differently, on my own terms.

As I’ve talked with women over the past couple of years, I’ve discovered there’s a common theme: they’ve all had a catalyzing incident that’s moved them to a tipping point. For some, it’s been a huge thing: a sudden tragedy or a cancer diagnosis. For others, it’s been a seemingly small thing: the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back – an everyday incident that caused them to say, Enough!

Whatever it was, it was the thing that made them choose a new path. And for virtually all of them, they had no idea at the outset what that path would be or where it would take them. They simply knew they couldn’t take any more of the way things were.

It begins with that first recognition of truth – the glimmer of an idea that there can be something beyond suffering, the inkling that you’re here for a larger purpose.

And that decision – that choice to allow yourself to change, to create something new, to step into your infinite potential lifts you to a positive emotional vibration right away.

And that gives you the first glimmer of power to create a new life.

The other common thread is that, somewhere along the healing journey, they’ve all discovered they’re here for a larger purpose, and that their life experiences have laid a foundation for them to help others in some way.

We’re gathering a community for this reason: to support women stepping into their personal power to heal, and to work together collectively to create a new paradigm of women’s wellness.

A paradigm that’s inclusive, collaborative, expansive, creative, intuitive, cooperative, and expressive.

A paradigm that gathers, nourishes and supports divine feminine healers.

A paradigm that breaks the bonds of the masculine energy model we’ve been chained to for way too long already.

A paradigm that deconstructs limiting beliefs and creates space for infinite possibility.

A paradigm that supports and allows individuality, uniqueness, and personal calling.

A paradigm that merges all our love, light and compassion with our strength, capability and endurance.

Can you feel the urgency to gather?

We’re out of time: we can no longer allow the old ways to continue.

It’s time for women to stand together and reclaim their feminine spiritual power.

Are you in?
