12 Things I Learned in My First 12 Months of Motherhood

It's been 12 months since my life changed forever... But I still remember the day like it was yesterday. After seventeen hours of labor with one final push I felt a release as my daughter came into the world. They handed her to me and with shaky hands I kissed her all over her little body. She was my sun, my moon, my stars and I felt a new kind of love spark in my…

You Are Divine Love and Other Things I Learned at I Can Do It

This weekend I attended my first spiritual conference, sponsored by Hay House, called "I Can Do It 2014." Leading up to the weekend, I had experienced a number of big life changes and it seemed like this conference could not have come at a better time. On Saturday morning, I woke up exhausted, guzzled a cup of caffeine, forgot about breakfast, drove like a maniac thinking I would be late, and then a funny thing…

The Goddess Within: A Talk with Deinah M. Khakasa

I met Deinah when we were both students in high school. On the dusty school yard in Nairobi, Kenya, we would often talk and laugh together. But unlike some of my other friends, we seemed to connect on a deeper, spiritual level. I always enjoy meeting people that seem to live on a higher plane, and Deinah is most definitely one of those people. She shares her insights with others and is on a mission to…

Walk Away

I was sitting in the Chinese Buffett when it came on the radio. It's a song I used to listen to on repeat, sing along with in my car, mascara running down my face. "I keep going right back to the one thing I need to walk away from." At the time Christina Aguilera released her raw, soulful album "Stripped," I was in an unhappy relationship, being cheated on. Looking back, I was just as…

Women Speak: A Poem

Women speak With their eyes. Even if they shake their head "yes" And mean "no" You can see it in their smile. You can see it in their gaze. Women speak With a light touch. With a gentle hug, Or a long pause. You can hear them without words. You can hear them with no sounds. Women speak When other women can't. To fight for what is right. To lend a helping hand. You can…

An Ode to Thanks-Giving

Many of the poorest people I know are actually the happiest. Their days may be filled with strife of how to put a warm meal on the table, but once they settle down for dinner, they always give thanks. They know the value of that meal and the value of their family. That's because money doesn't feed the soul. This Thanksgiving, I have been thinking very much about the soul and how it should be…

Just Believe in Yourself

For the past few weeks I have been listening as friends and family share their concerns with me. They want my advice and I will always give it readily and always lend them a shoulder to cry on. But lately I have been pressing on my own shoulders. Through the practices of reiki and meditation, I am learning how to calm my own anxieties and heal my own hurts. And through these ancient practices, I…

The Golden Ticket

The golden ticket = life! Give yourself a look. An earnest one. Are you living the life you were meant to lead? Are you happy in your relationship? Have you fulfilled your dreams? Last week I watched Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Not the new one with Johnny Depp. The original, awesome one with Gene Wilder. The movie, with all it's elaborate costumes, witty dialogue, and infectious music is really about one thing: the…

On Letting Go

There is a moment right before I fall asleep in which my body jerks, my muscles release and I finally cross over to the land of dreams. I used to fear that moment, try to analyze what it meant: why am I always standing on a cliff, why am I falling through the air? For many years I've been holding onto that cliff, absolved in fear, white knuckles, sweaty palms. What was so scary about…
