The Soul Heals~Love Heals

Joy Of Life








I sometimes forget

that I was created for Joy.

My mind is too busy.

My Heart is too heavy

for me to remember

that I have been

called to dance

the Sacred dance of life.

I was created to smile

To Love

To be lifted up

And to lift others up.

O’ Sacred One

Untangle my feet

from all that ensnares.

Free my soul.

That we might


and that our dancing

might be contagious.




Did you know that living a joy led life

leads us to a life

we are all born to live?


And that we are all worthy of joy? 


Did you know that it is not only waiting for us

but it also LIVES in ALL of us and it is available for us all as our Sacred and Divine birthright?


And did you know that our JOY is something so so Sacred and Divine and part of our wholeness not something separate from us?


Did you also know that your level of joy you embody and connect with day to day literally sends not only ripples BUT waves of joy out into our life and also the world?


And that is a huge healing gift you offer yourself and the world every single time you tune into this deepest part of you?



And that consciously choosing to access

the joy of your Soul within every moment

and choose it over and over again over your ego who feeds us with fear and doubt will absolutely lead to more joy and more love in your life?

AND that the opposite is also true?


What do you do that feeds your fear?

Did you know that is where we will find our ego every single time?




I am wondering what do you do to nourish your Soul? 


Knowing that is also where we will find my joy every single time?



We don't need much to tune into our joy

none of us really do


Did you know that it is often the

simplest things in life

that bring us the most joy?


For me I love to

sit in the sun in my backyard

read a Soul soothing nourish book

listen to the birds

go for a walk on the beach

quiet time to tune into my inner self 

have a conversation with my Soul


Joy is not in things

Joy is in us!

It already exists deep inside of us


How can you choose Joy today?


What are you grateful for today?


I Am Grateful For

the beauty that is all around me

the sunshine

the trees

​​​​​​​the warmth of the ocean breeze

the summer

the blue sky

the palm trees

peace and serenity

simple things that feel so ​​​​​​​nourishing to my Soul

my sanctuary in my back yard

walks on the beach

walks in the woods

green lushness all around me

​​​​​​​flowers and the bees in my garden


my family 

our health

my clients

my mentors and teachers 

our home 



Many dont know that I did not come to this place from living a life full of rainbows and sunshine


Far from it actually


​​​​​​​My healing path back to joy

emerged from many devastating

and difficult life challenges along the way

and in their midst

intentionally building

and discovering

a stronger

and more joyful version of myself

the me that I love the most

the me that I remember when I was younger before life got real 


Here are just a handful of the challenges that I have faced


*I came in as an extremely sensitive Soul who was painfully shy


Life got very real once I reached junior high school

without going into the gory details

I struggled and suffering deeply

from extreme family dysfunction disorder

social anxiety

and inner torment for many years


this initiation led me into a deep dark path

of my inner journey

of transformation and healing

back to the light and the joy

that always existed within me

and what I learned had always been there for me

inside of me all along


*As a young child I began to watch the light in my sisters beautiful hazel eyes slowly and gradually disappear as she has battled her own inner demons and the ravages of being another deeply sensitive Soul growing up in a cruel scary world that continue on to this day almost 50 years later


*I watched my niece and my nephew

who are like the children I never had

but always wanted  

grow up in a household with two parents

who suffer from severe substance use disorder just trying to get by and cope with their own stuff and watching the after effects and damage it caused two beautiful innocent and loving children 



*In 2014 my mother and I survived

a shocking and devastating house fire where we lost virtually everything we had

We were so blessed

to have all survived animals included

and lived in a hotel for one year

while our home and our life was rebuilt


*I watched my 68 year old father

go into the hospital for a routine back surgery where the doctors guaranteed 

he would be in less pain

and be able to walk

with more comfort and ease

After that day NEVER walk again

and live bedridden in a nursing home

for the last 12 years of his life


*I had to finally say goodbye

to my father over the phone

after he spent the last year of his life in isolation with no visitors allowed

after surviving the first 11 months of the pandemic he was admitted into ICU in the hospital

for pneumonia during the end of the pandemic where they were still placing people in solitary confinement with no visitors allowed

where once an hour

the nurses would just run in for less than a minute just to check on him 

and they would run back out

only to be admitted into hospice just 2 weeks later under the same circumstance

and die all alone

in a cold heartless sterile room

all by himself



*I have watched my mother grieve and be forced to navigate more grief and loss than any one person should ever have to go through


For the most part I live a happy full life now because I was forced deep onto my personally healing journey that set my Soul free to be able to find my joy again even if someone around me is suffering 


I have had to learn how to distinguish and how to tell the difference between the voice of my ego and the voice of pain, suffering, grief, overwhelm to the point of feeing like collapsing over and over again and rather consciously choose to turn my ears towards listening to Spirits voice and the voice of my Soul



I have had to ask myself over and over again

Is this my ego or my Soul


Is this how would my ego would respond?



How would my spirit... my Soul respond? 



How can I see my ego and see what its doing to keep me from my joy

that lives and breathes in me

that is my natural state of being?



And what can I do to put my Soul in charge? 


What would my Soul say to me right now?

​​​​​​​How can I allow my joy to breathe new life in me in this moment no matter what is going on around me?
