When my website (this one you're on) debuted in 2011, I was both ecstatic and anxious because there were no other websites on consciousness out there.
A lot of blogs were focused on self-help, lifestyle, food, inspiration, crafts, astrology, and more. But I hadn’t found a spiritual website on consciousness, so who knew what would come of this idea. No guarantees, but hey, give it a shot. Within months, people found the website, signed up for emails, joined the membership area (now closed), enrolled in astrology classes, and asked for personal sessions. All great feedback! Good to see that this content was useful and connecting with people.
Yet as my website grew in homepage views and blog sharing, I started to be targeted by someone with a bigger following who duplicated what I offered. It could only loosely be called “plagiarism” (in legal terms) yet it was all too close for comfort to me.
It smelled wrong.
I had never followed her, or even knew what she was doing; I never read her books or even visited her website. I wasn’t interested in her work because I had been there-done that years ago. In other words, she was never on my radar, but somehow I ended up on hers. I found out about it through other people. I paid it very little attention and stayed focused on what I could create, offer, and share in the world, including publishing my first book.
Then a trend started to emerge.

I rarely post feedback from my clients publicly, but I thought this was a great one to share from Tamara on Twitter because it highlights how one session can be lifechanging and bring clarity - even if it takes awhile to absorb the insights.
In our conversation together 3 years ago, we talked about her life purpose and what she was here to practice and learn. If you've read her book on forgiveness or her chapter in Modern Heroine Soul Stories, you know she has not had an easy path at all: loss, mulitple deaths of loved ones, depression, rage, domestic violence, sexual abuse and heartbreak.
But simply understanding the bigger picture can help calm and ease the heart, mind, and spirit.
(Start reading from the bottom.)
If I can help you get to a deeper understand of what you're here to learn, heal, and know about yourself, please check out my current offerings here.

One of my earliest formative experiences was the power of giving during the holiday season. My two brothers and I would buy Christmas gifts for kids our own age, wrap them up, and drop them off at a local organization. My heart was full with how doing something so easy for us would result in huge smiles for another on Christmas morning.
Conscious advocacy and volunteering my time has always been an ongoing passion. I’ve donated my time and marketing expertise to help a local hunger non-profit elevate their profile in the community and increase their fundraising efforts. A friend and I volunteered regularly at a soup kitchen on Sunday mornings; we chopped veggies for chili, made sandwiches with donated ingredients, and helped serve meals to a long line of homeless citizens. Through community outreach efforts, I’ve stood in front of groups of young women educating them about sexual violence prevention, and facilitated sensitive conversations about rape, power, and control.
As an ESL teacher, I’ve volunteered in classrooms to help international adult students learn English, and I have worked with very basic learners all the way up to more advanced groups. I’ve sat across from women eagerly learning colors for the first time, as well as the names of rooms in their houses. I’ve been put on the spot by very curious advanced students wanting to understand English idioms, such as why “the ball is in your court” or “that’s the way the cookie crumbles” or what it means “to catch somebody red-handed." You think you know English well - until you teach it!
My conscious advocacy turned global in graduate school as I chose my Master’s thesis to focus on the United Nations Millennium Development Goals, which are eight quantifiable and measurable goals aimed at reducing extreme global poverty.
Every country on the planet and all of the world’s leading institutions have agreed to participate and/or support these eight goals. My deep-dive research, which was conducted back in 2006 and 2007, revealed many amazing projects that are happening around the globe, including the Millennium Villages Project that helps rural villages transition to sustainable, integrated life solutions they can maintain on their own. Currently, 500,000 people in 14 sites across 10 countries are involved in this project.
The Millennium Development Goals are not well known because they’re not ‘sexy’ or driven by a celebrity, but they are transforming the world. Right now. As you sit here reading this, people are receiving mosquito nets to prevent the spread of malaria; tapping into fresh water for their village; giving birth in healthy conditions, and learning about their human rights for the first time. Amazing, right?
So giving back and helping our global sisters and brothers in practical ways has always been a priority. Even when life was incredibly busy and I didn’t have room for one more thing on my plate, I was searching for an organization that I felt a strong connection to based on this criteria:
- Efforts resulted in sustainable, practical life changes;
- Personal connections of some sort were encouraged and developed;
- People who are genuinely interested and committed to improving their lives and creating their dreams are supported.
Women for Women International is an organization that meets my personal criteria and also supports the efforts of the United Nations Millennium Development Goals.
Being selected as an Ambassador is an incredible honor, and deeply inspires me to spread the word about their incredible program.
I'll be sharing more success stories and updates through email and social media, and hopefully inspiring YOU to participate in our global efforts as well. Online events and fundraising goals will also be shared.
We are very lucky to live in a time when we have so much to be grateful for. And we're blessed to be able to support others in improving their lives and creating their dreams, too!

Your current life is only a fraction of the energies you have experienced as a soul.
When viewed from higher consciousness, you open up to the fullness of your soul story and a broader understanding about who you are as a soul, as well as the energies you are experiencing in this incarnation.
You as a soul are composed of many stories, and through your life, the energies of those stories are activated with the intention of guiding you to higher levels of consciousness.
Surely somewhere along your path you have asked yourself:
"Why has my life unfolded in this way? Why do I experience certain themes, or repeating patterns, or ongoing relationship dynamics and lessons? Why are some emotions bigger for me, and yet not as prevalent for other people? Why do I carry specific dominant needs that other people in my family do not relate to?"
For example, if you have experienced a theme of betrayal or abandonment in your life, where did that energy begin? If you have felt deep fears around your emotional expression, how did that originate for you as a soul? If you have found yourself locked into many ego battles with others, what is being triggered within you that can be released now?
Or perhaps you have noticed a theme in your life around lower female or masculine relationships that you wish to inject greater consciousness into because you want more authentic connections with other people. Whatever energies and themes may be prevalent for you, you will find greater understanding to them in healing your soul imprints.
