The Reason I WILL Raise my Daughter to look up to Wonder Woman

I initially resisted going to see the new Wonder Woman movie because of the sex symbols Hollywood puts on women. Why should I sit there supporting a flick that uses women’s bodies to get money. However, I kept hearing from my female friends how wonderful the movie was. So I gave in. The day came when I had some free time and a friend of mine asked me to go with her. Well, thankfully, I was very pleasantly surprised. Throughout the entire movie I was having moments of enlightenment that intertwined with all the spiritual training I have done throughout my life. It opened up realizations of myself of my own warrior and godliness inside of me.

she represents both feminine and masculine qualities.

To me, Wonder Woman is the true symbol of what a woman healer, on this planet, should strive to be. She represents pure love, hope and acceptance that humans will possibly have a dark side to themselves. It is her service and duty to do what she needs to do to balance that out for the world. In my eyes, she represents both feminine and masculine qualities. She is the type of woman I want my daughter to look up to.

I want my daughter to see this in herself. To strive to be everything she can be in her life. To live a life filled with passion and drive for doing what she feels guided to do. I want my daughter to feel and see her godliness from the inside out. To be able to be the warrior when needed. To not be judged for being female. To be free to be who she is.

Believe in Yourself

This is something I longed for in my life. This is someone I wished I was able to see in myself. I don’t want her to wait until she is in her 30’s, to find out, that she can live the life she wants to live. That she can be gentle yet strong. That she can be feminine yet masculine. That she is a goddess and a warrior of her life.

I will raise my daughter to not only look up to Wonder Woman but to strive to be the best person she can be. And the best way to do this is to start with myself.

Pride Festival Reflection

I had the honor to share a booth, at the Pride Festival, with one of my good friends, Elena, owner of Sit Means Sit in St. Petersburg, FL. It was a very enlightening experience. I have never had the chance to attend such an event, even though I have always wanted to be there to support. I left with the overwhelming feeling of how badly people are not able to express themselves fully on a daily basis. That there has to be a special occasion to actually let ourselves free as we truly are. This is mind boggling to me. I mean, I sort of got it before, but this event really opened my eyes. The people there were allowed to express themselves as who and what ever they wanted to and it was ok. At least from my view, it was full of love and there wasn’t any violence.

The only negative energy I received, the entire time at the festival, was from other Reiki practitioners. I was giving free Reiki to whomever wanted to sit for 5-10 minutes, in the heat, and receive some light. I didn’t see the harm. However, there were 3 older women, all on different occasions, come up and ask me if I was a Reiki Master or not. And when I told them I was a 2nd step, they proceeded to tell me “well I am a master” and walk away. I don’t know about you, but I love me some free Reiki. Also, I’ve had crappy Reiki experiences from all walks of Earth, 1st steps, 2nd steps and Reiki masters. It has to do with how clear you are with opening yourself up to being a conduit of the light, at least in my experience. Honestly, the snobbery within healers really needs to stop. That is not what we are here to do. This will be written more about in another blog.

So, in my reflection, my overall experience of being a vendor at the Pride Festival was pretty darn good. I was able to give Reiki to about 10 people, sold a few pride rainbow bracelets, enjoyed laughter with many and watched people being who they truly are for the moment.

LOVE – The Foundation of Life

Love is the foundation of your existence, and you’re just as worthy of receiving as you are of giving love and compassion.

This is an important time to care, nurture and love YOURSELF. Being able to experience this power and energy is something most people strive for on a daily basis. It can be something that can also destroy you if you strive for it negatively. We are born with pure love and then as we grow older we are taught many other things about love through our parents, grandparents, teachers, society, events in our lives, etc. This can affect our perspective of what LOVE truly is.



Love isn’t just a word you say to your “love ones”. Love is much more than a simple 4 letter word. Love is everything and nothing at the same time. Love is transforming. Love is beautiful. LOVE IS YOU! YOU ARE LOVE! Now is the time to change your life and see your self-worth. Time to analyze what you are letting in your life. What types of people do you hang around? Do they represent love and help uplift you? If not, it might be time to love yourself more and honor yourself by creating new loving relationships. Number 1 is starting to create a loving relationship with YOU! You can start your journey of self-love by sitting for 5 minutes with your hand on your heart, breathing deeply and feeling love radiate inside of you. By doing this simple exercise daily, you can start feeling a shift within yourself and your whole life. This will help you send love inwards for yourself and outwards towards others more compassionately.

…it will allow you to receive and give love, and to radiate as the pure soul that you truly are. – John Holland, The Spirit Messages Daily Guidance Oracle Deck

Truth – What is Yours?

A couple of weeks ago, I had a sales person come to the door, of the place I work, looking to sell us a payment system. Now, I am new and I wasn’t sure if they already used his services or not, so, I asked him to come in to get the number of the person he needed to contact regarding his services. While I was writing down the information he started asking me about the symbols I was wearing dangling on a black cord around my neck. I wear a Sri Yantra and an Ankh symbol because I resonate with their meanings. I am not sure if you are aware, but explaining these meanings while at work is not exactly a quick process. So I said, “This one is called the Sri Yantra. It is originated from Hindu philosophy and connects with balance. This one is called an Ankh and it originated in Egypt and represents life.”

At this point he asked me about Jesus and if I believed in him. I said yes. Then he got on his phone and asked me if he could read me something. Me being kind, I said yes. He started reciting a passage from the bible. After he was done, he asked me who the passage was talking about. At this point, I wanted to get back to work and knew this wasn’t a conversation my boss would enjoy paying me for. Don’t get me wrong, I love talking about spiritual stuff, but that is not in my job description.

The passage was about truth and Jesus’s path. I don’t remember which one and I’m not sure it is actually relevant for this post.  But this man was determined to tell me his truth on how he interpreted this passage. During one of his pauses from him sharing his thoughts, I thanked him and asked the gentleman if he needed anything more from me, for business purposes, and told him I needed to get back to work. He didn’t get the memo I was trying to put out. He walked to the door and continued to tell me that my truth was the wrong truth and I would be going to hell for it. I was very confused on what he was trying to convey to me considering I already told him I believed in Jesus and Jesus’s message.

I asked the gentleman to leave once again and explained to him that I really needed to get back to work. He again refused to leave. At this point I was starting to get worried and I will be honest, a little scared. My body started shaking and I was preparing myself for the worst. I tried listening to him, but it was hard to hear what he was saying because of fear that was boiling inside of me for him refusing to leave. Something he said was, “If you believe in Jesus’s truth then you wouldn’t be acting this way.” Again, dumbfounded by what he is saying and scared what his next move is going to be. I asked him for the 3rd time to please leave. He walked to the door like he was going to leave. I got a sense of relief only for a moment however. It didn’t end and he didn’t honor my request. He came away from the door closer to where I was standing. I was thanking God at that moment for their being a huge desk in between us. He continued to tell me, “If your truth is wrong then you will live eternally in hell. If my truth is wrong, I will only live this lifetime in hell.” I found this to be the most interesting comment of the entire exchange.

I had enough at this point and told him he needed to leave or I was calling the police. Thankfully he finally got that memo I sent. He walked to the door and left leaving me with one more thing, TRUTH. MY TRUTH. Knowing that everyone has their own truth and beliefs. No one right and no one wrong in the eyes of truth. He believed what he was saying so passionately that, to him, it was truth. I didn’t particularly believe what he was preaching and felt as if it was quite an aggressive way to express his message, however, I honored his path to a degree of him over stepping boundaries (that’s for another blog). That is MY truth.

The one thing I am certain about is that there is a higher power greater than our own and we live on ONE world and we are destroying it and each other by thinking everyone needs to be living our truth. What is your truth? Do you feel so passionately about it that you would harm another for it? Do you even know your own truth?

Living in a Fear of Change

This past 3 weeks I have been working crazy hours to get my businesses up and running. Something I have dreamed about for most my adult life. I spent way too many years not doing what I wanted to do and after getting my butt kicked at an entrepreneur event, I decide to push myself to the limits and get out of the fears of change and stability. I feared of not being liked, not having enough, not being good enough, not having anyone follow or like me, and on and on. So many fears come up when things need to be changed. Its how you decide to use those fears and let them run you. I am choosing NOW to use fear today to push me out of my comfort zone and get my butt out there and stop hiding.

UPDATE: I still continue to work on releasing the fears that come from starting your own business without support of the people closest to you. Each day I have to have a constant reminder that I can do this. I CAN do this. I CAN do this. I CAN do this. Repeating that to myself has helped me stay grounded and in my “go to” attitude. It might be a simple statement however, for me, it works (most of the time). I might find myself being super stressed out and crying because I am a perfectionist and want everything to happen NOW and my way, like most people. But for the most part, when I come back and recite these simple words to myself, it brings me back to my center and reminds me of why I am doing this.

What statement works for you? Is there something you have been meaning to do but let fear stop you? What can you do for yourself today to make that first step in creating that life you always wanted?
