God Says Yes To Me by Kaylin Haught I asked God if it was okay to be melodramatic and she said yes I asked her if it was okay to be short and she said it sure is I asked her if I could wear nail polish or not wear nail polish and she said … Continue reading Yes or no?
I just watched this video on a non-politician running to be Mayor of San Francisco. It seems crazy: why would someone who doesn't even think he'll win, or maybe even want to win, run for political office? If you run for office, your goal is to win, right? That would be success, right? Well, I'm not so sure. As Stuart … Continue reading Goals
I turned 28 years old yesterday. 28. That sound so weird to someone who's never felt her age. The number seems arbitrary, meaningless. And, then to have this day devoted to celebrating myself... even weirder. Yesterday, I had to keep reminding myself that it was my birthday. It felt like any other day. I had … Continue reading Birthday Blog
I recently attended a training for work. Yes, I still work at a brewery and, yes, we're required to learn about the beers we serve, how beer is made, etc. etc. Please don't ask me any questions because most of my brain space is already dedicated to other, more spiritually uplifting, matters. Six other young … Continue reading Are we afraid of passion?
I am on this planet to help heal the world. By “healing” I don't mean simply repairing. I mean, imagine that your arms get cut off. Instead of just sewing up the wounds to scar over, your arms are replaced with wings. This is healing that isn't just filling a hole; it's planting new earth … Continue reading My Healing Manifesto
It's been a while since I've posted a blog! So much has been going on with the end of seminary work that I've barely had time to write anything extra. That being said, even though I'm done with all of my assignments (YAY!), I want to post some work that I've done for seminary - … Continue reading Funeral for the Earth
I could probably write a novel on my personal experience with burnout, but I won't because I simply don't have the time. I'm in seminary and a sound healing program; I work for a nonprofit, at a restaurant, and for myself as a healer and coach; I live in a collective household and must devote … Continue reading Anatomy of a burned-out sacred activist
Recently I have felt oddly sick or like I'm about to get sick. You know that hot and cold feeling you get when you're coming down with the flu or a bad cold? I had that for three days straight without getting worse or better. The sensation came with the advent of spring. The days … Continue reading What is my body telling me?
Spring has finally sprung with a powerful New Moon and Solar Eclipse on the Vernal Equinox. I'm not actually sure what this means (there are great astrologers out there who do!), but something about new beginnings – always an appropriate lesson/intention for spring. Spring represents renewal, life after the “death” of winter, which we know … Continue reading Spring Cleaning
What does it mean to bring someone up in this world - to provide for and guide the growing processes – mental, emotional, spiritual, physical – of a tiny person so that they become a thriving, well-adjusted adult? When I was a kid, I wanted nothing more than to be treated as a grown-up, as … Continue reading How the heck do you parent a child?
