Being a Medicine Woman has lead me on a path of spending more time alone communing with nature, the trees, the animals, the spirits, the water and listening to the wind. I don’t need anyone to approve of me, to accept me, to love me. I don’t need attention, complements or to be told I’m beautiful. I don’t seek men or relationships anymore to fulfill that which was once hidden from within me. Why? Because… I’ve learned to love myself. I love myself! I love my kindness, my silliness, my flaws, my weaknesses, my mistakes, my knowledge and I love standing in my power. I eat what I want, exercise when I want, go to sleep when I want and wake when I want. No one and no thing has power over me. How do I do it? I’ll tell you my secret…. You are creating all of it and once you learn to take responsibility for that, then you will begin to see the magic of why you are here and what your mission is. You choose what you give your power away too and you choose what you will take your power back from. Stand in your power! Be authentic, be real, be raw, be vulnerable, and when they push you down you stand up and brush them off and keep walkin. The more you try to stand in your power, the more they will try to keep you from it. They will put beautiful, shiney irresistible people, situations and things in front of you, to distract you, delay you, take you off your path. But you’ve come so far, and you’ve put up with so much that now you begin to recognize it and you now have the strength to stop it before it even has a chance to touch you. Why, because you know that you are creating it.
Have you ever seen the movie, “The Labyrinth” with David Bowie and Jennifer Connelly? Remember the scene where she tells him, “You have no power over me” and the entire illusion collapses? Well, that’s not far from the truth of the story of our lives. Where did we give our power away, and how did we take it back. What are you giving your power away to and how will you take it back?
What better way to spend a beautiful fall Saturday than to do a black and white photo shoot at Montezumas Well.

Personal boundaries are the limits and rules we set for ourselves within relationships. A person with healthy boundaries can say “no” to others when they want to, but they are also comfortable opening themselves up to intimacy and close relationships. A person who always keeps others at a distance (whether emotionally, physically, or otherwise) is said to have rigid boundaries. Alternatively, someone who tends to get too involved with others has poor boundaries. Also keep in mind that having poor boundaries is also a form of giving your power away.

Most people have a mix of different boundary types. For example, someone could have healthy boundaries at work, poor boundaries in romantic relationships, and a mix of all three types with their family. The appropriateness of boundaries depends on the setting. What’s appropriate to say when you’re out with friends might not be appropriate when you’re at work. Some cultures have very different expectations when it comes to boundaries. For example, in some cultures it’s considered wildly inappropriate to express emotions publicly. In other cultures, emotional expression is encouraged.

Think about a person with whom you struggle to set healthy boundaries. This could mean that your boundaries are too rigid (you keep your distance), too poor (you open up too much), or there’s some other problem that isn’t so easily labeled. Who do you struggle to set healthy boundaries with?

Saw a few wild horses on my way to sedona today to do a Full Moon ceremony. More confirmation on my path…

I wanted to share my most favorite recipe! I call it medicine soup and it tastes delicious! Only five ingredients:
- Chicken stock
- Three sweet potato or yams
- Two bulbs of garlic
- 1 large yellow onion
- Fresh basil
First I brown the garlic and onion in some butter or ghee. Then I pour in the chicken stock and the cubed yams.
Cover and cook for about 30 min. You don’t want the yams to be mushy. Toss in some fresh basil and a little sea salt at the end and enjoy!
In this pic I am also having some fresh prickly pair juice.
I’m talking about something so big that it will change your beliefs. All that old programming and fear based conditioning is coming to an end. The road ahead is paved with only love, abundance, caring, appreciation, responsibility, respect, joy, laughter, freedom, gratitude, and you doing only what you love. There’s no turning back now. Go ahead, you will be just fine. Trust.
