“In solitude there is healing. Speak to your soul. Listen to your heart. Sometimes in the absence of noise we find the answer.”
How I long for solitude and a quiet place. Somewhere I can go to rest and find some peace. It seems like my life has accelerated and everything is moving in warp speed. New York has gone through a major shift. What was once a bustling city full of art, culture and vitality is now somber and lost. Walking down the streets, you see massive homelessness, boarded up shops, and empty buildings. It is an eerie feeling that tugs at my soul to witness this change that happened in a blink of an eye. I have taken a huge step back. Iv’e retreated into my own womb because I am processing all these massive changes that humanity is going through. I managed to gracefully move through all the chaos unscathed until the last month. But being in the midst of all the depression that has taken so many spirits and lives has pulled at my heart strings.
The world is in a time of crisis. America, particularly is experiencing division and opposition like never before. This is an election year and it has been the most confusing, misinformed, heated, controversial and outright opinionated battle that seems to be separating all of us. I go into deep thought and think of how we came to this place. What happened to pull people apart? Were these feelings of anger,hatred resentment, and prejudice always lurking beneath the surface, just waiting to reveal itself? Did we become so complacent and numb to not want to step into the night and see our shadows?
I Find myself connecting with nature more and more. With all the troubles and confusion in the world right now, I invite you too, to hold the space and go within, where there is always a warm sunny place that will lift your spirits and bring peace to your heart. The empathy I have for humanity has flooded my soul with so much love. I have tears of sorrow and joy. I know if I can keep my heart open, even when it hurts, goodness will prevail.

I have never felt so connected to the earth than I have at this time. I have always been a tree hugger hippie that loves to walk barefoot in the grass. I have always had a deep connection with nature and can spend hours in quiet solitude just being in the midst of her beauty. I knew that the environment was crying out for help sending SOS signals for a very long time.
Something had to give. Our world has been in a state of crisis for a long time. Everything was out of balance. Now finally, there is a pause. Now we are awakening to what we knew had to stop. We can not go on the way we have and think that everything is going back to normal. We, as a collective whole have to change or we shall perish. This earth is both fragile and resilient, as people, but there comes a point of no return.
We must learn to reconnect with nature, to find a balance that is symbiotic and interdependent. A way that will benefit our needs and give back to the endless supply of her bounty that wants to provide and give. We can not continue to take and take without giving back. We reap what we sow, and if we aren’t sowing healthy seeds we will leave the soil barren and destitute. The seeds of thought, the seeds of crops, the seeds of love are all connected. It all starts with healthy and right minded thinking. To nurture and care for our bodies, our minds, our thoughts, our emotions, our words, our actions, our spirit, each other, our communities and our world.
This is a pause. A time to reflect, to slow down and feel. To find compassion for all living beings. To observe nature and rediscover the magnificence of life. Look deep into the eyes of another and you will see the reflection of yourself. Look deeper and you will see the universe in yourself. Look even deeper and you will see the connection and see the oneness. Now is the time like no other. It is time to reconnect and find balance to heal the earth and ourselves.

“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”
There is a crisis on earth today. We are living in what is called the 6th major mass extinction. It is estimated that between 0.01 and 0.1% of all species will become extinct each year. That means between 200 and 2,000 extinctions occur every year. That is an alarming rate! If we keep going the way we’re going, our quality of life will become unsustainable. Our entire system will collapse. People are becoming more despondent and feeling hopeless. Because of this, people feel disconnected and broken. So how can we begin to make a change and reconstruct a new foundation build on the values of cooperation, consciousness and compassion?
Maybe the answers are right under our noses or feet and we just must begin to look and notice! I have always loved and respected nature, so when I heard of the movie; Fantastic Fungi-How Mushrooms Can Heal, Shift Consciousness and Save the Planet, I went to see it. I was completely transformed. You see mycelium is the vegetative part of the fungus or the mass branching threads that connect and communicate with all of nature. Fungi’s incredible ability to heal environments that have suffered from catastrophic change might be explained by the epigenetic qualities of their network-like design. It is a network, our brain is a network, and our computer information-sharing systems are networks. Networks are valuable because of their resilience to change, their ability to adapt to change, and their ability to experience change.
Somehow our networks have become separated. Our families, our communities, our cultures, our world have felt the tuck of competition rather than communion. Can we reconnect the synapses that have become separated between nature and consciousness? Can we learn from the mycelium that knows how to share, be generous, support, and communicate with each other that is right under our feet? Learning how to communicate with one another in a compassionate way will reestablish our connection with nature by creating a network of intelligent solutions. The whole is greater than its parts. To heal ourselves and the earth, we must begin to realize who we are and where we came from. We are all one. Healthy conversations build strong networks, strong networks connect and support one another. All life began and will end with fungi. The quality of our lives will be determined by how well we are able to communicate with each other. Let’s build a new model designed after one that has been around from the beginning of time. Love, the ultimate connector. It is the mycelium network that holds everything together.

Some people need a wake up call to wake up! Why is it that so many people wait for a crisis to occur before they finally wake up? What is it about having to hit rock bottom to finally make a change? No one really likes to change but it’s the only really constant in life.
Procrastination only means that you do not respect and like yourself enough to do the things that will give you a life of a higher value. You might be afraid of the fear of failure, which is really the fear of being criticized, so you don’t begin and put it off. Day after day, you want to start but that fear subconsciously keeps you paralyzed. You make up all kinds of excuses why you can’t. Then before you know it, years go by and boom, some sort of crisis hits. It could be a financial, health, or relationship catastrophe.
At first the universe gives you a little nodge letting you know to start taking some action. Then, if you ignore it, you might get a louder alarm trying to wake you up. But if you continue to hit the snooze button, a crisis will interrupt your life. So, why wait? Action conquers fear. Don’t delay, start today! Need support? It’s advisable to hire a coach. who is your accountability partner and protagonist to guide you on your journey. I have a 30 day program that will jump start your life! Now is your time!

One negative thought can send your mind on a downward spiral which will create all kinds of consequences to happen. They might be little at first but if you allow those negative thoughts to continue they build into something much larger and harder to get rid of. They like to latch on like a virus and attach and attack your thoughts so that it takes a tremendous amount of strength to combat those beasts.
Any time a negative thought creeps into my mind, I say cancel/clear and replace it with a positive thought. If it is a fearful thought that is gripping your emotions, allow it surface and invite it in to your mind. Ask yourself what is it about this fear that is keeping you locked into a negative vibration.
There are so many people that are dealing with some real life crisis. Illnesses, financial woes, loss of loved ones or anything that can bring negativity to the surface, can disrupt your peace of mind.
There are times that we are challenged to stay positive. Through pray, meditation and constructive thinking, we can overcome any obstacle. We may feel sad, hurt and pain at times, however we will prevail if we remember that this to shall pass.
There is a spiritual answer if we seek the highest good. Stay connected to the good!
If your going through a life crisis, challenge or just feeling negative, I can help! Call me, let’s talk!
