Wild Wealth

Honor the Longing

Hey soul sister: listen to me read this post right here {6min, 2sec}:
 


My work is so much of who I am.

So much of who YOU are, too, I know. You are dedicated, committed and absolutely on fire to do meaningful work in the world. And you do -- in big and small ways, just by being you, you are changing the ecosystem of the world through your love, through your wisdom, through your magic. 

As joyful and fulfilling as work is, you need more.

You need time for deep sustenance. Time to...

Beginning with a Heart Wide Open

4:30 am. Darkness. 

I wake up with questions. Questions I know will become prayers that pave the path of my journey. The quality of the questions, I know now, determines so much of the experience. 

I've struggled with new beginnings. 

Do I need to recite every catalyst, big and small, like it's own form of prayer, rubbing the mala beads smooth as I mutter under my breath? Is it necessary to mark the countless ways life has held out her hand and asked me to dance and I've either...

The Ways of Wild Wealth

"Wealth" triggers strong reactions. 

Three years ago, when I began talking about my own path, and my work, as the path of Wild Wealth - a dear friend told me that she was completely turned off by the word wealth, which I found fascinating. We had a long discussion about what wealth is, and what it is not. 

(She eventually came around to my way of thinking.)

In our society, wealth is associated primarily with financial wealth -- but the root of the word wealth is "weal" which,...

The Feminine Path of Mastery

I attended a yin yoga teacher training


I did the training to celebrate completing my breathwork healer certification and because Kari Kwinn is my favorite yogini as well as a dear friend, and because I adore yin yoga - it's pretty much the only style I practice with regularity.

As Kari Kwinn says, "Yin is an intention." which to me means it's not necessarily about choosing outcomes or what it looks like, but it's about how we show up for the practice - heart and mind open, willing to listen...

To Know Life Deeply

My greatest desire is to know life deeply. For my life to be a prayer, for my hours to be spent awake to what's alive in me and what's alive in the world. 

I don't wish to simply observe. I want to participate, heart open wide. Forget stoicism or transcendence of the human experience. There is a whole range of experience that I hold and cherish as they pulse through my body - from grief and anguish to the fire in my belly to profound pleasure and joy. 

Maybe, like me, this idea...

This is Home

Note: I've been cleaning out my virtual closets over here. The dearest work to my heart over the last few years was Surf Lessons (an eCourse I ran in Hawaii). The lessons are currently undergoing a transformation and are finding a new form, because it speaks so deeply to my belief in pleasure and blessing being our birthright and the most solid, soulful and spacious ground we can walk on as creators and purposeful women. I pulled out this essay from Surf Lessons for you today. May it inspire...

What the World Needs

Rise-Up-Sister.png

Beautiful woman. It's time. 


Hey soul sister. Would you rather listen to me read this to you {5:21}


The world needs you in all of your glorious, authentic and unique power. What that means is you, fully present, full capacity, connected to the truth: you are powerful, you are loved, and you are a divine expression of all that is good and beautiful in the world. You, your business, your family, your community and the world needs you to embody this truth. 

The whole of creation...

The Secret of Change

Six years ago, money was a big issue for me.

I couldn't look at my money because I was unconsciously acting on a story of lack: lack of love and respect for myself, lack of trust, lack of capacity to care for my resources because I felt that I didn't have any resources at a fundamental level.

Even as a CPA, I was deeply entrenched in this story, in reaction to this false sense of scarcity and "not-enoughness", I would "treat" myself to try and feel worthy or abundant which would amplify my...

(Don't) Step Into Your Power

Dear Radiant Soul Sister: 

Are you one of the amazing, creative and spiritual women that says to yourself or someone else, "I want to step into my power." Is this said with a furrowed brow and a vague sense of your power being beyond your grasp, waiting for you out in the 'someday' category? I know what you mean by wanting that - I really do. But honestly, this phrase has always just felt wrong - even when I've been the one to set that intention for myself. 

The thing is,...

Cultivating Courage

The Season of Winter is upon us in the North

For a variety of reasons, I woke up to a deep heaviness in my heart. Immediately, my mind started flipping through the reasons, trying to quell the rising emotion. Quietly, tenderly, I set aside thoughts of WHY and instead moved softly to be with myself, to listen to the undulating sensations moving through my body that whisper stories in a language my mind cannot comprehend.  

As I sat bundled up outdoors, watching the cold winter sun rise and...
