Releasing Fantasy

Releasing Fantasy


Posted By on Jul 18, 2019

  Fantasy can be a double-edged sword. While it can provide an escape from the everyday as well as give us inspiration, it can also draw us into a world of illusion. Fantasy can be a problem if we become too attached to the illusion and detached from reality. This can cause us to see people or situations in a different way other than the truth of what they authentically are. We can even put on rose-colored glasses which can...

  In our relationships, one cycle we can get caught up in is trying to figure out the actions of others. Relationships are complex things. In our interactions with others, sometimes things can be confusing. This can cause us to try to understand the deeper reasons why people are prompted to do what they do which can make us over analyze or over think things. This can create stress and disharmony within our own lives, causing us...

You deserve someone present

You deserve someone present


Posted By on Jun 11, 2019

Dear one, you deserve someone present. Someone who will not run and hide when the seas grow unsteady or the winds howl through the trees. A soul who won’t deflect your questions, your feelings or guard against your wild heart. The one meant to stand beside you won’t play games when the time comes for action. You are not meant for connections that cause you to ache. You are meant for so much more. You deserve someone who is...

  As humans, we deal with things not working out all the time. In our everyday lives, we see things that we want not come to fruition, take different turns or simply just don’t happen. While this does make life an interesting journey, which is of course what we’re here for, it can be extremely frustrating to put effort and energy into something over and over only to have it not pan out. This is especially true in our...

  I’ve always been very aware of the disagreements that occur between people. Conflict and resolution fascinate me. I’ve watched people argue the same themes over and over, aware that it never went anywhere. They come to the disagreement bringing with them the same shields and defenses as always. Clearly these subjects rose within them some great wave of emotion that was worth raising their voices over. And yet...

Dealing with Disillusion

Dealing with Disillusion


Posted By on May 4, 2019

What is disillusion? Disillusion is the realization that things aren’t the way we desire. It can mean being let down when things don’t turn out the way we wish them to be. It can be losing hope in situations or realizing the truth, which can be brutal at times. Perhaps it’s mourning the loss of something that you’ve never known or perhaps grieving someone that you had. Maybe it’s despair over the current...

The truth of who we are

The truth of who we are


Posted By on Apr 5, 2019

  We get so used to being misunderstood, hiding who we are can become like second nature to us. Hiding the very fabric of our being for fear of rejection or ridicule. We shrink, holding ourselves in so none can see our truth and judge us. We try to take up less space, keep ourselves to one corner of the world and shut the door tight to keep our prying eyes. The walls we build may keep us safe, but can create loneliness in this...

Breaking Tradition

Breaking Tradition


Posted By on Mar 7, 2019

  I have always been a sucker for a love story. Even better if there are some historical aspects to it which call to far away places or some tense time during history’s dark pages. Recently I embarked on a Turkish series centered in Russia and Turkey at the end of World War I called “Kurt Seyit ve Sura“.¬†Perhaps it was my own familial connection to Russia that called me to this tale, my father’s people...

  The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho has to be one of my favorite books of all time. It tells the tale of a young boy who goes in search of his dreams and the adventure he encounters along the way. He meets colorful characters, wanders off to far away lands and opens his heart to love for the first time. One of the concepts that resonate deeply with me is the concept of Maktub which is mentioned throughout the book. It resonated so...

Shattered by grief

Shattered by grief


Posted By on Mar 3, 2019

  Grief makes everything more vibrant. It turns up the volume on the rest of our lives. Things that are wrong or important pop. Unanswered needs or desires scream through pounding veins. Through the haze of despair, things can become more evident, if only through the deep well of emotion we are experiencing. Everything is sharper as the last inhale and exhale by one so loved is watched, knowing it will never come again. How...

  My dear sister, I see your wild heart ache, the dance of love leaving confusion shining in your feral eyes. It’s assumed that fire breathing women do not bleed, that they are nothing more than brimstone, force and fury. What do dragons know of love, after all? Nothing could be further from the truth. They are a tempest of raw emotion and feeling, their hearts gentle for those they grant passage inside those hallowed...

  Our lives are shaped by our priorities. The things we put effort and energy into are what grow and flourish. We choose in every breath and in every moment where we put our time and resources. Where there is a lack, things wither and fade, like a plant void of sunlight and water. Here’s the thing. We can’t make others responsible for our happiness. It’s not up to them to put 100% of their effort on us in order...
