Taking photos with my iPhone is a great passion of mine and I would like to share my Instagram prints with you! Many of my photos are available on Instacanvas for purchase! Enjoy
I absolutely love Etsy. It is my favorite place to purchase pretty much anything! Support the artisans, fuel a conscious economy, receive mega-awesome gifts in the mail like presents. I love it all. The whole feel of the site, the community, etc. Really happy vibes. So add to that that I’ve been tapping into my creative flow majorly these days and have become really passionate about buzzing away on my sewing machine while baby naps. I am hooked on sewing and creating love-filled tangible objects for friends/family/Etsians.
So I invite you to check out my new shop! It’s called binkieblankie and there I sell upcycled organic baby blankets (made from clothes that baby outgrew). It all started when I found myself organizing baby’s 1st clothes that he outgrew and I knew I definitely didn’t want to give them away or stack them in the closet. I figured, why not save them forever in the form of a soft sweet blanket? It lights my heart up when I see my son love his binkieblankie creation and hold it close to him. I hope to help you have something similar (and completely unique) that lasts forever.
As a “grand opening” kind of deal, I am offering a 10% discount if you use the coupon code ‘custombinkie’ at checkout! Shipping is free (you just ship me the baby clothes and I ship the completed blanket to you at no cost). Also, stay on the lookout for handmade organic whimsical plush toys and naturally sourced baby mobiles. Only the best for our babies!
Lots of Love! Enjoy the shop! binkieblankie.etsy.com
My life has forever been changed after answering the call to become a Mother. The whole process opened me up in ways I never imagined possible. Working through the fears, learning about the importance of deep nutrition, respecting the subtle and not-so-subtle energies that lined the entire path. . . Such a fast track to deep soul-searching and prioritization of things in my life.
In order for a woman’s body to birth a baby naturally, all of the energy pathways (chakras) must be open to allow the new life to flow through. INTENSE to say the least! It marked a time for me of deep reflection and having to stare many fears right in the face.
“The way out is through.”
This whole new journey I embarked upon led to more questions and more answers within myself than ever before. The role of Mother is so very closely attuned with Mother Earth (Gaia). Right now Gaia is undergoing much cleansing, shifting, etc. and we must commit ourselves to holding in highest regard the health and protection of that which is being birthed. The glorious and golden new baby of Mother Earth. A new life. A new way. On a personal level, we can definitely feel what our home planet is going through. And I feel that women especially are picking up on the great cleansing. We must remember that we are One.
There is much trauma in our world due to living disconnected from our innate connection with Earth – and ourselves. When women ask me about my unassisted birth story, before I can even answer, I am usually met with a story of their deep birth trauma. Epidurals, C-sections, not being heard – disconnection from baby – feeling as if a storm took over and dreams were shattered and power was stripped. This all feels very painful to me. An event that was once marked as an Initiation, a Holy Rite of Passage, has turned to an “emergency” that can only be “safely” executed in a sterilized hospital setting. A Woman, in completely surrendering herself to birthing energy, is in the most vulnerable/open/powerful state. And when that is taken from her (often without her knowing), it creates a wound (physically & emotionally – on a deep subconscious level), that most who have been through it try their hardest to forget. But the cells do not forget. They hold onto and grip all unintegrated painful experiences, so that we may learn, grow, and move on. The plight of women these days is reminiscent of that of the Earth’s. Infertility problems, traumatic experiences, fear for what is to come, an outsourcing of one’s power, being scared of what is natural or untampered with. . .
“Normal” and “natural” are not the same!
I have heard the call to help and I am answering. I intend to assist women – mothers, soon-to-be-mothers, those who wish to be mothers or simply wish to honor the feminine within. I have always felt drawn to restore the Earth however I know how, and now I realize that that is taking the form of honoring Woman. Honoring the creativity of Goddess. My years of study, personal experience, working with the spiritual realm, becoming attuned to Reiki, love of nutrition/nourishment, etc. has led me to now offer:
- Reiki classes – So that whoever wishes can be attuned to this loving, gentle, powerful energy
- Hosting Women’s support groups – Where we can share birth stories, parenting stories, allow open communication and integration. Feeling heard is an important step of the process!
- Assisting with nutritional strategies – To help with fertility and harmony in the body/mind/spirit. What can you eat to prepare for conception, pregnancy, breastfeeding?
- Lymphatic Decongestion sessions – Reduce inflammation, fade scars, boost immunities, help shift grief to peace
- Energy work – Work through past traumas, fears, anxieties, etc. Access your deepest innate healing potential!
As the 2012 energies intensify, it’s crucial that we have tools to assist us energetically so that we flow seamlessly with our Higher Selves. You are not alone and we are all ONE. Isn’t that amazing to realize? What affects one affects all. And we are all experiencing similar vibrations right now, even if they do show up in different ways.
Want to share with you two of my favorite sources for info on grand energetic themes:
I love checking in with both sites and seeing how the reports match up with my experiences. So cool to see the trends and be able to prepare myself for what’s to come. I hope that you find them useful too!
I am loving today’s reading from Oracle Report: “There is an interesting aspect to today’s energy that brings second chances with things. Something may return to you – a renewed interest, proposal, or opportunity; something forgotten; or a person with whom you’ve lost contact. We always want to pay attention to synchronicities, but today these will take form to bring something back to us. What’s showing up for you?” That message was received in Divine Timing for me. Thankful for these forecasts reminding me that I am not an island, and what I am experiencing is also going on for others. We really are ONE.
In honor of supportive energies, I am offering Oracle Readings via phone or email (I will draw upon Runes, Tarot, Angel Cards, and other decks as intuitively guided) and Distance Reiki Sessions to assist you. We can do these sessions remotely, so regardless of your location, you can receive such help. Both the Oracle Readings (10-15 min) and Distance Reiki Sessions (30-60 min) are offered on a Sliding Scale basis. That means you pay whatever you feel drawn to (no amount is too small!) before your scheduled session. Schedule your reading or session with me via email or phone: firstname.lastname@example.org – 845.418.2211
Cheers to being vibrant, clear, and aligned!
The health benefits of Chaga mushroom are vast! It is an all-encompassing health tonic that can be enjoyed daily. The taste of Chaga tea is very much like vanilla or mocha. Why should your health strategy include anything but the best tasting, most enjoyable nourishment ever?
My husband Taylor & I are big into longevity, health, and finding the best methods to provide the desired results we seek. We are big believers in the power of intention, and every Chaga mushroom harvested by us is done sustainably, consciously, and with a deep reverence for the bounty Nature provides us. We also do Reiki on every tree that has gifted us with its medicine. Isn’t it incredible that the Earth provides such beautiful treasures for us create and sustain abundant health? Chaga mushroom is one of its greatest gems.
This particular strain of mushroom has the highest found level of antioxidants and contains powerful immune-enhancing properties. Siberian folk medicine and modern research has shown that Chaga is anti-inflammatory, anti-tumorous, anti-viral, and an excellent stomach soother. This very rare mushroom grows on birch trees in high altitudes.
Two of our favorite articles on Chaga will provide you with more in-depth info about the benefits and uses:
We are offering Fresh Wild-Harvested Chaga for purchase. The way the Chaga comes is as whole pieces (or smaller chunks) and we can also powder it down for you (not to be confused with “extract powder”). Here is the pricing breakdown:
1/2 lb ~ $30
1 lb ~ $60
3 lbs ~ $160
5 lbs ~ $260
*all Chaga currently sold-out!

Everyone has dreams they want to accomplish and things they want to manifest. Whether it is a promotion at work, a new car, a beautiful conscious relationship, etc. But what is the biggest obstacle to your success? YOURSELF! Yes, that’s right. Your self-imposed limitations, judgments, and fears are holding you back from the greatness that is you. You are the only you that exists, so you can never get it wrong. It’s humbling to stare your fears in the face and overcome them. Everyone goes through it everyday. It’s all about approach and intention. The following quote reminds you to reclaim your power and feel comfortable with shining brightly (as it can be all too easy at times to throw a pity party or feel undeserving of manifesting greatness).
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us, it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others. ~Marianne Williamson
How often do you find yourself shrinking because you fear your greatness is too great? That is no longer serving you! Step into the limelight . . .
Some of the best ways to overcome self-imposed limitations are: conscious eating/cleanses (ex: liver cleanses are powerful tools for flushing old discordant energies from the body), meditation, and energy healing modalities such as Reiki and Qi Gong. The key is to get the stagnant energy moving! Moving into freshness and fun! You are the co-Creator of our world and your personal life experience! What an empowering concept to feel and to harmonize with. How will you choose to consciously create your reality? Will you fall victim to what you feel the external world wants for you, or will you reclaim your sovereignty by going within and searching out/clearing out any obstacles you have set before yourself and your dreams? Visualization is a potent tool and integrating visualizations into meditation is powerful indeed! Imagine yourself as already successful, as already having exactly what you want. Feel it resonating within every cell of your being. Is seeing believing or is believing seeing? Wherever your thoughts and feelings are is a direct measure of that which you will draw into your reality. Ever notice how someone having a bad day continues to roll in that direction all day long? And someone feeling great is consistently “in the flow” all day long, with synchronicities and miracles popping up everywhere like spring flowers. It’s Law of Attraction, baby! Use it to your advantage!
Cheers to creating paradise for yourself and awakening to the truth. The truth being that you deserve deep joy and to have all of your wildest dreams come true.
Reiki is a beautiful healing energy which has completely transformed my life and my health. I am eager to share this unconditionally loving energy with the world! In hearing the question “what is Reiki?” so often, I finally stumbled across an article that I feel accurately describes it. Your body is a self-healing instrument, designed to identify and heal its own imbalances. A Reiki Practitioner assists you in achieving a state of deep relaxation so that your body is able to heal itself in the most effective way. If you are interested in experiencing a Reiki session, then I greatly recommend that you find a Practitioner that resonates with you. You can contact me anytime at 845.418.2211
Enjoy the article!
Upon delving deeper into Sacred Symbolism, I crossed paths with the beauty and healing of the Antahkarana. Being deeply committed to my path as a Reiki Facillitator, my soul is ever-thirsty for information that aligns me with my Highest Good and allows me to create a more harmonious environment conducive to healing, growth, and love-filled expansion. Reiki & meditation are two of my top favorite tools for evolution! The Antahkarana greatly supports both of the aforementioned tools! Simply by looking at the image or having it around you creates a healing and light-filled environment. It aligns you with your Higher Consciousness and opens up the channels for nurturing the mind, body, emotions, and spirit. The symbol has a consciousness of its own, and its healing effects are completely customized to the person coming into contact with it. It is never harmful and always beneficial. The ancient wisdom and energy associated with the Antahkarana is profound! This ancient healing and meditation symbol has been used in China and Tibet for thousands of years — and I am all about the tried-and-true ancient healing techniques! There is no known written record of where the Antahkarana symbol originated and its use in ancient times was very secretive. At this time of our planetary evolution, it is very useful for us to have things such as the Antahkarana come to light.
I invite you to add the use of the Antahkarana into your everyday life. You can print out the different images (Male, Female, Cosmic Cross, Square) and use them however you may feel intuitively guided. Perhaps you want to place one of the symbols near your desk at work, beneath a massage table before treatment, in your wallet, in your room for use during meditation, etc. Each of the different Antahkarana symbols creates a different effect, so I recommend that you research a bit on each one before integrating them into your healings and meditations.
Posted here is the Female version, intended for creating greater compassion within oneself.
Enjoy these sacred symbols!
