Part 2 — Behind the scenes on The Grounded

The third and final day of filming last week was my favorite.   That’s because I got to meet with some of the most inspiring people I have ever met from across the country — on top of the wonderful, sincere and innovative director Steve Kroschel, I met with world-renowned cardiac specialist and holistic physician Dr. Stephen Sinatra, MD and Earthing guru and founder of Simply Vibrant, Dr. Christy Westen, DC   (To see candid still shots from the first movie filming session back in April, click here (with Apollo astronauts Charlie Duke and Edgar Mitchell.) And to see more […]

10 Things I’m Doing Right Now To Prepare For Fall

Ahhh… fall. How I love you. The cooler mornings. The walks outside. Leaves swirling through the air. Loading up on firewood for the winter. My children laughing as they swing, run, play, spend more time outside than ever before. Oh, but how you hold a dark secret inside of you. You don’t fool me for one instant… I know that the cooler mornings and campfire evenings are possible because of your tilt away from the sun… and how the days are now shorter than the nights, until they are so brief we wake up to darkness and eat dinner in

8 Ways to (Almost) Instant Throat Chakra Healing

Getting back to my Chakra Series (to catch up on the first four chakras, click here!) today we are addressing the Throat Chakra.   Ahhh, the beloved throat chakra. Communication Central.   This chakra one has given me some grief recently! If you have followed my blog for a while, you might remember that I developed a throat abscess and had to have surgery to remove my tonsil last winter.   That was no fun… but it also was no co-incidence. Here’s why: I’ve always struggled with public speaking… I had one particularly horrible experience in medical school where I

The physical symtoms of the heart chakra… and how to re-align RIGHT NOW!

Wow, I haven’t done a video in a long time, and now I remember why. Dang. I hate the lighting, the angle, the still shot, how I accidentally cropped my head in half… everything!   BUT! I’m posting it anyway.   Because the heart chakra is one of my very favs and because the physical symptoms that arise from the heart chakras are so common, I bet you can find yourself in this video somewhere. The heart chakra affects so much, from heartburn to breast tenderness to fibromyalgia to obsessing over relationships and SO MUCH MORE. Give this video a

Healing Your Lower Chakras… safety, creativity, power

  YAY! I was recently interviewed about Earthing for Fox NEWS.com and enjoyed it so much!   All about the health benefits of Earthing… and this is a pretty major thing to get into mainstream media. Sure, Earthing is all over the alternative medicine websites and loops but so far, not as much exposure in mainstream culture. In the past few months, though, things are shifting. I’ve given interviews and published articles in First For Women, FoxNEWS.com Magazine (which made it onto the front page of FoxNEWS) and MaryJanes Farm Magazine… which hits newsstands in September. I’ll keep you posted

How Your Digestion is Linked To Your Emotions

Everybody already knows this… that digestion and emotions are directly linked. You know that sudden feeling when you are scared and you become instantly nauseous? As a mom I got that feeling all the time when my kids were younger and I lost sight of them for a moment in a public place. It’s a horrendous feeling… it doesn’t matter how hungry you were or how long since your last meal — in life-or-death situations, hunger immediately evaporates and the rest of your senses are heightened (heart pounding and ears and eyes on maximum alert) and you scan the crowd

One of the best tools in my toolbelt…

  On Monday I had a wonderful guest give some great tips on reducing anxiety and taking charge over anxiety. I struggled with extreme anxiety as a child and a young adult, and feeling like I have loosened the grips of anxiety over my life makes me feel so free. But recently, as I was preparing for my role in filming The Grounded and traveling down to interview two moon walking astronauts… well, I was pretty nervous. I’ll admit it, very very very nervous.   Trouble sleeping, knot in my stomach, insecure about everything from what I look like to
