Mother’s Intuition: How I learned that the Universe has My Back

Never apologize for trusting your intuition... What is a mother's intuition? Over the past 11 months as I have been stepping into the role of mother, I've been learning to trust my intuition. But man. This week was rough. Like a lost soul I was wandering. I questioned every movement, I second guessed myself, and I wouldn't even trust the advice of my angel cards. I found myself asking questions like: Have I made the…

Why I’ve Been a Hermit for Months

You may have noticed less emails, less blog posts, less activity on¬†Sookton's Space. My friends haven't seen me in months. I've been popping up hosting workshops and events, and then quickly retreating to my home. The truth is, I have been spending a lot of time alone, reflecting, and writing. In the past I would have called myself "selfish" for this kind of behavior. I would have said, "Suki, people want to see you. You…

Communicating with Angels

The other day I was standing outside talking on my phone. The sky was a brilliant blue, not a cloud in the sky. The sun was beating down hard on my shoulders. I had just received a call from an interesting stranger. She was offering me the chance to participate in a clinical trial of a new drug to treat my PCOS. My curiosity was peaked.

This weekend she lost her battle with cancer, a disease that stole her body but could never steal her beautiful soul. The day before she died, I visited Butterfly World. I had been sick for over a week with an ongoing cold and my head was still pounding, but as…

I (Still) Dream of Africa

Three times a year my parents and I would embark on a 470km journey from Nairobi to Mombasa for our family vacation. The road was bumpy, the car was hot, but the anticipation of seeing that beautiful ocean would keep us going. I've always had a fascination with the ocean. The way the current moves you and the sound of the waves crashing upon the shore. The vastness of the ocean and how all encompassing…

An Ode to My Roots

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

I am walking through a field of dragonflies. The hum of cicadas lingers in the air. Today I am spending my lunch break here, with my heels digging into the dirt. It doesn’t smell particularly nice and it’s hot, but I know this is exactly where I need to be in this moment in time. A wise woman told me this weekend that I need to spend time building my roots. She said I am…

13 Things I’ve Learned From Living in Florida

I can't believe that it was 10 months ago that I packed up all my belongings and shoved them into the back of my Mitsubishi. We left Delaware in the middle of the night, bound for sunny skies and palm trees. We didn't know what the future held, but there was excitement mixed in with the tears. And now here I am, sitting with a cold drink as the hot Florida sun beats down. 10…
