How the Signs of Self Hate Deepens Our Understanding of Self Love

How the Signs of Self Hate Deepens Our Understanding of Self Love

This journey of understanding my identity more deeply has surely brought up some stuff I really could not have anticipated. In this month's blog I share with you signs of self hate that I recognized and how it reinforced my current sense of urgency to do the work of self healing. In the process of really understanding the origins of my self hate, I'm reminded that the lesson is (1) it was a long road in history that brought me to this place of self hate, (2) there were/are many factors involved, and (3) we could have a long and windy road ahead of us, but it can also be so simple.   
Just as much as we aim for the bright light and positivity around us, we must honor our full selves and our experiences even if it means visiting our dark and shadow sides

Intention at the Core

Intention at the Core

Hiking without intention is like walking with the aforementioned notion; that being outdoors is healing in itself. That’s true and important for sure, AND I’m claiming my unique gift of being able to guide others through a healing process that is unapologetic about going inwards for personal growth. I’m focused on my connection to support you in living your their best life and to walk through the trenches and climb up the mountains. In a sense, I’m taking hiking from a recreational activity into a deep healing process. And that requires and demands intentionality.

Alas! The year is coming to a close! Can you believe it? Now is the time to reflect on and celebrate the year past. But for many the weight of the holidays and all its festivities are a true challenge in keeping balanced both physically and mentally as we charge through to December 31st.

The mood around The Town is pretty heavy right now. It's a mixture of the usual hustle & bustle of holiday festivities coming up, but in the background of tragedy. The Oakland Ghostship Fire happened near me.

The Rise & Fall of the Sun

We lay witness to the days that have come before us and act upon creating what we need ahead of us. As the sun rises to birth a new day, it also sets- carrying all that we have endured throughout the day. Find space in this process to focus on what brings you peace.
