Independence Day Gratitude

    We love the 4th of July!!!!   Last year as part of our homeschooling journey I read the Declaration of Independence to my children on the 4th of July.   We discussed the meaning of the word choices in this declaration, the importance of the risk and the stand that our forefathers took in proclaiming their independence… and the sacrifices they made to lay the foundation of the country we live in today.   “That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, …

Fibromyalgia Relief Right NOW

Since so many women in my practice are affected by fibromyalgia, I’m going to blog about it today with a tribute to the energetic dynamic behind this disease… because shoulder tension is something that is personal for me. What can you do energetically to release fibromyalgia flares? Read on:     I carry all of my tension in my neck and shoulders. Painful trigger points, tension headaches, tenderness in my upper back and neck so strong that at times I can’t even wear a bathing suit or a sports bra or a ponytail, or anything pulling on my neck at …

Shout out to my loves…

Just so absolutely on-my-knees grateful for the love in my life…   … a husband I met in med school…     … and married.         Children who have literally taken my breath away from sheer happiness…     … over and over again.     That my hubby is my best friend.   And I know my parents and brothers shy away from being on my blog, so I don’t mention them as much as I’d like, but I really want each of them to know that my gratitude starts with growing up in the family …

Starting 2011 Off On A Good Foot… After Rewinding A Bit…

Hello! Welcome to a fresh new year! A year filled with anything you can create… anything you want it to become. Our family took a few minutes on New Years Eve to write down (on our massive chalkboard that I blog about creating here) all the things we want to manifest in 2011. Then we walked around the house with a sage smudge stick and cleared the old energy out of each room, adding back in love and excitement for this new year. But a funny thing happened…. the smudge stick stayed lit while we walked through the downstairs, through …

Our family motto…

Everything always works out for us. We say that out loud to each other almost every day. I know I say that to myself, and really *feel* it, multiple times a day. I was just saying it to myself today and I realized… this must be our family motto. It made me stop and realize how far we’ve come, and wonder how this became our motto. Only a few short years ago this wasn’t a thought that would routinely cross my mind. I felt blessed, no doubt. I felt joy at being a mother and a wife, absolutely. I adored …
