Crack is OK

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Uncategorized

I’m talking about cracks in crystals and in you – I am not talking about any other type of crack, obviously.

Please direct your attention to the picture of my amazing new smokey quartz pyramid. Beautiful right?

Well… there was a time in my life when I would have said NO. Reject! Look at the cracks in it – hideous!

In fact, that is what I literally did in 2011 when I bought my first energetically charged crystal bracelet from a kind healer lady in Calgary.

It was the fall, Sang had come out the other side of chemo, radiation and surgery and things were finally looking up. I decided to treat myself to a beautiful crystal bracelet.

When I got the bracelet I carefully inspected every last inch of every last crystal and – gasp – found several cracks. What the ef! I paid good money for this bracelet and so it should be crack free!

Is what I thought at the time.

I even went so far as to contact the lady who made it and meet up with her to show her the imperfections because I wanted a completely perfect one.

Such a metaphor for my mindset and world view 7 years ago when external perfection was of utmost importance to me. Oh silly Twyla….

During our meeting the dear bracelet creator lady patiently explained to me that there are no bracelets that are completely crack free. They all have cracks.

Cracks are a part of life. None of us is crack free and many of us have so many cracks on the inside we try to make our external selves that we present to the world perfect so no one knows about our imperfections.

It’s painful to be seen for the cracked beings we really are, until….

We are able to embrace our cracks and do vulnerability!

Oh vulnerability, how I hated you until Sang died and I realized I could survive the worst of the worst of what life could throw at me. Try to break me, you won’t succeed.

Before I used to think I could and had to protect myself. WRONG. That’s not strength, that’s living in fear.

Strength is being real, being seen for every last crack you have – plus all the good stuff too 😊 And I’m not saying go show your cracks to every last person, that’s not the point.

The point is not to pretend you’re something that nobody is.

That was confusing, let’s try that again: The point is to move from your fantasy illusory world where “perfect” people exist (and is what you strive for) into actual reality where nobody is perfect.

Stop lying to yourself.

Let go of the ridiculous crack free standards you hold for yourself.

Embrace your cracks – they make you YOU.

Just like my new beautiful smokey quartz crystal pyramid – you can still see the amazing unique rainbow refractions at the same time as you see the cracks. The cracks don’t negate the beauty.

Soul Aligned vs “Shoulding” in Manifesting

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Uncategorized

The #1 most important and foundational piece to manifesting is your intention.

You can take all the classes on manifesting you want and apply technique after technique, but if your intention is off – then it’s all for naught.

A fire won’t start without a spark, and in the same way – your manifesting won’t take off unless you have that spark of desire and passion.

It’s really funny / sad how in the manifesting workshops and 1:1 sessions I do, I see people shooting themselves in the foot before they even get out of the gate.

Then when they leave the gate they’re hobbling and forcing it and not enjoying any of the process, obviously, because it’s painful to run with a hole in your foot.

Why do they do this? Because their intention is more of a “should” than something that is truly Soul aligned and lights them up.

So they say they want it, and often they believe it’s something they should want, but if we dig a little deeper – WHICH I LOVE DOING! Then it becomes clear that there is zip zero nada passion behind it.

And this goes for me too! There are goals I’ve set for myself that either went nowhere or when I reached them I was like – yayyyy…. fizzle fizzle fizzle…. Because I didn’t actually care about them and they didn’t create abundance for me.

The two foundational questions to ask yourself every time you set a big intention are:

  1. Is this aligned to who I truly am at Soul level?
  2. Does this light me up, get me excited, and feel expansive?

The key is you need to get a YES to both questions.

I may get all jazzed up about something and get a big yes to Question 2. For example, I was really fired up about writing a book last year and set that as my intention.

But then when I went to Question 1 this year and checked if it’s aligned to me at Soul level…. I got a big NO.

Now, I could write a guidebook because at Soul level I am good at training, so there’s a little loophole I can wiggle into there if I want.

Regardless, the main point is that I did not get a YES to both questions and therefore if I went ahead and wrote a traditional book it would not bring me abundance.

And to be fair, writing a book isn’t a manifesting intention. It’s a to do. It can be a normal intention for sure, but since we’re talking about manifesting I need to clarify that it’s not something to manifest.

Manifesting relates to attracting things you have no control over into your experience, i.e., money, people and opportunities.

But you still want to ask yourself those 2 questions for regular intention setting too. Because they will help you weed out intentions that won’t bring you abundance.

If you want to answer Question 1 but you don’t know who you are at Soul level, then it may be time to get a Soul Profile reading with me. It’s a big deal to understand and connect to your Soul Gift and Divine Nature!

In conclusion – if there’s something you set as an intention to manifest and it’s just not happening – ask yourself the two questions above. Then if needed, revise your intention till it does get you a big YES to both questions.

Love and light,

For Ladies Only: The Yoni Egg Edition

Posted 4 CommentsPosted in Uncategorized

“You put what, where? And why?”

That was my immediate reaction when, after I’d asked the participants of my intention setting workshop if they ever set intentions, one lady replied that she uses a Yoni Egg for her intention work.

Being raised a highly sexually repressed Christian (thanks mom for making me sign a mini contract saying I’d stay a virgin till I was married – that was great and didn’t mess me up at all!), I was like – how can she be talking about her Yoni right now to a room full of strangers!!!

She was so cool and calm about it, like it wasn’t no thang.

Needless to say for me though, I was amazed this lady had been so open about her Yoni Egg practice and I immediately kind of dismissed the whole experience as just being very odd.

It wasn’t till about 2-3 months later when I was doing my monthly healing arts fair booth that 2 Yoni Egg related things happened:

  1. My friend and fellow healer Nicole came up to chat and began talking about how excited she was to buy her first Yoni Egg at this fair from her friend Divina, and Nicole’s excitement is very contagious
  2. I realized that the beautiful egg-shaped crystals the lady at the booth across from me was selling were actually Yoni Eggs!

Coincidence? I think not.

And so, with curiosity very piqued, I went to talk to Divina about her Yoni Eggs.

There were about 6 different types of crystal Yoni Eggs on display, the only ones I remember now are the rose quartz, jade, and jasper. Those were the 3 I was torn between.

I wanted to set some powerful intentions around abundance so jade seemed the obvious first choice. But then something deeper inside me said. “NO. Self love comes first. Self love is the core and the key and the foundation that needs to be in place first.” And so I bought the rose quartz Yoni Egg.

Perhaps at this point I should take a quick moment to explain what a Yoni Egg is for all y’all who don’t know. Yoni eggs are crystals in the shape of eggs, there are 3 sizes, and they are used by women mostly internally (but also externally) to super charge manifestation, intention setting, and connect with your womb and the Divine Feminine.

On a physiological level, the use of a Yoni Egg strengthens the pelvic floor, helps with libido, stimulating lubrication, and can help prepare you for childbirth. It’s beneficial for post-menopausal women too as it helps with sensuality and longevity.

On a strange side note, after reading that Yoni Eggs have been used in Asia for over 5000 years, I remember buying a large egg shaped crystal while backpacking through India! No idea then what it was really meant to be used for, lol.

So that’s what they are.

Now back to my story.

I first used my Yoni Egg on the day of a full moon and damn – did it have a super charged effect! I took the time to journal about all I wanted to release and all I wanted to manifest. Then I cleansed the Egg with a special lavender and sage smudge, purified it with the hot water, and finally held it and set my intentions into it.

The first time I only used it over a 24 hour period. The second time I felt drawn to work with it for as many days as I kept feeling inspired too. Oh, and the second time I began working with The Sophia Code activations at the same time and it was really cool. I could probably write a whole post about that too.

Honestly before I used my Yoni Egg the first time, I had a lot of “logistical” questions. I watched a bunch of YouTube videos and read some articles, but it was only after using it and realizing how natural and easy everything was that I was able to relax about it.

I feel like I could keep writing for pages about all the insights and revelations I got from using my Yoni Egg, but I’m going to wrap it up here.

In a nutshell – I love my Yoni Egg. I will be buying more. The lady I bought my Egg from has 9 of her own. Each crystal has a different energy that it brings to your body and life.

I even saw mini Yoni Egg pendant necklaces! What the what!?! Love it. Love the idea of having my heart and sacral charka connected.

Oh, that’s actually one last thing I did want to mention about Yoni Eggs – they really help stimulate the sacral chakra. I’ve been setting intentions about releasing any trauma – present or past life – from that area so I can open the space fully for creation.

I’ve noticed health improvements as well as more self-love and empowerment feelings since using my Yoni Egg. AWESOME.

I’m feeling very inspired to hold Yoni Egg girl’s nights to get the word out and conversations about Yonis going. Let’s break the taboos together and reclaim this very powerful Divine Feminine practice and piece of ourselves!

In love, light, and Truth,
