Give Thanks

You are holy. Your life can be a living prayer. Every breath a way to be connected to the web of life. Every step a way to move with wonder and amazement. A way to give life. To walk the beauty way. Give thanks. Thank all that have come before. Your teachers, your guides, your ancestors, your loved ones, this…

End of the Day Prayer

Shining ones and goddesses of the depths, help to remove illusions and obstacles from my path. Give me strength and resolve. Help me breathe deeper. May I no longer be afraid of what I cannot see and may I trust that I can face what I can. May I remember, remember, remember the fire that lies within.  

Living Prayer

May my life be a living prayer, I release wounds from this and any lifetime of being persecuted and burned at the stake. I will brave the wilderness and speak to the complex and complicated nature of what it is to be alive at this pivotal moment in time. I will not betray my own soul out of fear. May…

Heart Opening Choices

I believe we create the world and how we do that matters. There was a time I would have stayed stuck in a story for a long time. When I would have let myself sink down by the weight of it. And I’m not saying I don’t still struggle because I do but I’m finding there is an inner resilience…

Emerge from the Struggle

Emerge, dear one, from the struggle. Let go of other people’s arguments. Let go of other people’s ideas. You know who you are. Keep your eye on what matters, “which is mostly standing still.” (Mary Oliver) The world will swirl around you, trying to convince you to forget what you came here for…which is to let wonder follow your steps.…

Stay Hopeful

Some days, those days when you are having a hard time catching your breath, the most profound act of courage is to stay hopeful. This kind of hope comes out of a deep compassion for others and oneself and is not a denial of suffering. It is a radical act to hold both hope and despair at once. We truly…

For Everything – For it All

I’m sitting outside a church at the end of the day thinking about what it means to be a human being in this world full of struggle. A sleepy cat is next to me and people at the cafes nearby are having a good time. I’m thinking about connection, roots and how I want to be in the world. And…

Prayer to Release Grief

May I release the grief I feel at all the ways in which we lash out at each other in our anger and fear. May we know the sweetness that is possible when we hold each other up. May there be a deep healing on the horizon. May it seep into our bones. May we remember that we create the…

Love Lives in the Dark

Help me complete what I must in order to move forward. Help me see why I am here and let my writing be as raw as it once was. Help me tell the stories that my ego doesn’t want to be shared. Let my experiences be a way for others to not feel alone. So many times I’ve anxiously read…
