When a door closes

Posted By Ara on Oct 06, 2019

Dealing with endings can be very difficult.

Whether our choice or not, when a door closes we can feel great loss. Accepting things that will never be and moving away from what is known is hard. Trying to reconcile all that will never be, creating the changes that are necessary.

Protection Crystals

Posted By Ara on Oct 06, 2019

Crystals have been used for protection for thousands of years.

Whether in rituals, talismans or embedded in statues dedicated to protection, Crystals and gemstones are dynamic addition to any practice. They can be added to yoga, meditation, shielding work, affirmations, ritual grids or even in dream work.

Here are some of my favorite Crystals to use for protection.

In an ever changing world

Posted By Ara on Oct 05, 2019

As humans, things are always changing around us.

New chapters open and new beginnings sprawl promisingly in front of us. Possibility shines brightly as we move towards some long held dream. Desires inspire us and fuel our imagination. Hope springs eternal, as the old saying goes.

What is transparency in relationships?

Transparency means to be open, honest and truthful.  In the context of relationships, it is vital to the evolution of the partnership. It shows trust in our partners and our ability to be vulnerable and let someone in to what we are experiencing. Without transparency, there is no sharing and it shuts down growth.

A Port in the Storm

Posted By Ara on Aug 28, 2019

During the course of our journey as humans, there are many storms we must weather.

Job stress, the economy, family or personal issues. Part of our time on planet Earth is learning to navigate the sometimes choppy waters of the human experience. Is there a port in the storm? Where do we seek solace for our soul when the seas of life are rough?

Just because you're a woman does not make it ok for others to trespass upon you.

It is not your job to put up with others issues and swallow your voice until it chokes you out of fear, feelings of inadequacy or for threat of reprisal. It is not your purpose to give up your time, energy or resources for everyone and everything out of a sense of obligation or accommodation.

Following Our Bliss

Posted By Ara on Aug 06, 2019

"If you follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. Wherever you are — if you are following your bliss, you are enjoying that refreshment, that life within you, all the time.

Releasing Fantasy

Posted By Ara 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.

Dealing with the actions of others

Posted By Ara on Jun 15, 2019

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.

You deserve someone present

Posted By Ara 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.
