New Year

We made it to 2019, a touch disheveled, maybe a little worse for wear and a look of complete confusion but we made it! Boy was 2018 ever a roller-coaster eh! I know for me I feel like a different person now then when we were coming into 2018. I feel more rooted in my true essence, have shed so many layers of skin I’m now fresh as a baby in many ways, have lost many along the way and

Release

I’m now just shy of two weeks out uniform and I’m still sort of floating in a sea of uncertainty and confusion.

So much to do and so little time to do it because we are moments away from Christmas. I used to so love Christmas when things were “normal” but this year I’ve not even managed to shop for my girls yet.

No one tells you just how difficult it is to get out, all the red tape, appointments, people to call and

More New Beginnings

More new beginnings?! I don’t know how many more new beginnings I can handle right now!

What’s funny is I’ve been excited for this day, the day that I would be free to do as I please. It’s been months in the making, much fear and uncertainty mixed in with so much excitement at what the future will hold until today… The day of reckoning I suppose, the day that I actually

Forgiveness

We’ve touched a bit on forgiveness, something I was still working on (shit, still am) and something still very foreign to me at the time (given I still had this idea of “fair” and “just” in my mind).

I was starting to see that I was still holding onto anger in many ways, anger at the systems I’d been dealing with, anger at the military for the treatment I was receiving while dealing with the situation, anger at

Ego Out

We’ve discussed ego a bit throughout and now we’re going to delve a little deeper. We all have an ego, it truly does serve to protect us or wouldn’t exist, that doesn’t mean we always have listen to it though.

What we once needed protecting from is falling away, leaving in its wake a far brighter view on life as a whole. We’re stepping into our power, our truth and taking back our lives so this means

Choices

Ooookkkkkaaaay, I felt that shit and released it (fun times) for the time being. I was now stepping into unknown territory, a place of acceptance, of learning that I simply am unable to control everything in life (this coming from the control freak) because there’s always a piece to the puzzle that we’re not given until later.

It was mentioned earlier that I was headed toward

Avoidance

So before we discuss the fallout from the verdict lets first go back to avoidance…

I had gotten incredibly good at looking at the bright side, puking positive affirmations and living only in the light, never stepping foot in the darkness because I was scared I may never find

Highest Good

Reaching the peak has been a journey and a half, one I’m not even certain I’ve accomplished yet at times when I sit and listen to the ego still trying to protect me.

That’s the thing about the ego though, it always gets a bad rap but the reality is it’s often there as a way to protect us from getting hurt.

All the times we’ve not listened to our gut and gone and done the exact opposite of what our gut was telling us just gives the ego a basis for bringing in the fear and the feeling of being alone. Our ego once served a purpose but now

Hope

My Reiki journey officially started in April and by September 2017 I had already gotten my Level 3 Reiki Master. I had no idea at the time why I felt such an intense draw to get all of my levels, a week after level 1 I had already reached out to my mentor asking for level 2.

Typically there’s an integration period, many spend time with each level, healing themselves, educating themselves and

Love Thy Self

If being fully honest with myself (and all of you reading this), I actually remember very little of that fateful day in April.

It was a whirlwind of emotion, eye opening conversation and incredible healing.

I had no idea exactly how much healing I received that day though until
