amazing moments in egypt

I just returned from two weeks of spiritual travel in Egypt.  I was joined about fourteen other fellow seekers/healers/travelers  sailing down the Nile stopping daily at a different sacred site for a intense & most of the time private visit filled with special intentions & healing. I felt a total immersion of myself...meaning all parts of me were activated during this trip- my physical, emotional, spiritual & mental.  It was a ton to process- I still am.  I felt the sacred ancient sites in my whole body.  It is amazing to feel each of the temples and how they are all different. The experiences I had in Egypt were powerful, big & awesome (in the truest sense of the word).  I am having a hard time finding the best words to describe the trip when I am asked. So I created this list of moments that will allow you to peek into the wonderful parts of Egypt and its people that I experienced. hearing the call to prayers spread across Cairo & feel the chills down my spine-- every time! Egyptian children practicing their American "Hello!" <with gusto>  & then giggling shyly when you replied back toning our voices together in amazing ways in the temples the full belly laughs with Sameh, our Egyptologist & guide the constant smiles singing disco tunes on our camel ride on the Giza plateau the majesty of the Nile-deep, nourishing & immense a guard in the temple kissing my hand in a blessing of thanks learning the art of Egyptian haggling & loving the fun of it the bigness of everything- the sites, the Nile, the people's hearts & my emotions the return boat from Elephantine Island when the boat captain & crew sang & drummed as the Sun set on the Nile understanding [...]

big dreams. big triggers.

(originally published for the February  2016  of  Sibyl Magazine) I’ve initiated some of the biggest things EVER for my life in 2015. As I write this on the cusp of the New Year I feel all the potential coming. I’ve taken some big steps & some grand leaps to begin to align my life with the greater vision I have for it. And you know what? It is scary. (It’s also secretly amazingly thrilling!) These leaps are triggering all the fear buttons I have—BIG time. But I also feel more potential, more power & more control than ever before. There are the money fears (HUGE), the “who-am-I to do this?” and the “you’ve-never-done-that-before.” And on & on. Worry. Fear. Doubt. Overwhelm. Lack of worthiness. Lack of resources. All of these creep in from time to time. The thing is…I really KNOW that the stuff I’m investing in, creating & pursuing are critical right now to my personal growth & the growth of my business. I KNOW that by challenging myself to create new programs I will serve my clients in deeper ways & with more lasting transformation than the ways I was serving them before. I KNOW that my trip to Egypt & its sacred sites in a couple of weeks will totally expand my spiritual & intuitive capacity. And be, in the truest sense of the word—AWESOME! I KNOW that the investments I’m making in my personal & spiritual education are some of the most important ones I can take. But OH BOY! They trigger every button I have. But even this is a gift, since I’m learning how to come back to my center, be present & TRUST. Before this year I would have never have even attempted the leaps I have. I’d have stopped myself by the [...]
