I Will Leave The Light On For You

This evening I have an urge to write. Not with any specific topic or idea in mind; nothing has particularly inspired me to write. I just feel a strong urge to get words out on the keyboard. I’m happy to see you’re coming along for the random ride.

This full moon energy coming up on Saturday has been intense this week so far. As time passes, I have become more and more sensitive to energies of all kinds – people, the moon, places etc. At times, it feels like walking through molasses being out in public with all the different energies swirling around me, and what some times feels like through me. Sometimes – this is a great thing. Other times – overwhelming and exhausting. In the latter times, I just amp up my self-care when I get home. When I can’t be home, I focus on my breathing in the moment, remembering that I don’t own what I’m feeling; that I do own how I deal with it. Big, belly breaths are so helpful.

The irony of this full moon energy is that although I feel in my heart and soul, and physically better than ever, I’ve cried the last two evenings. A clearing is going on, as my heart feels heavy. Releasing old energies – full moons are good for that. I’ve wanted nothing more than to be home after work. Curled up with a blanket. Napping. Having hot baths, and hot cups of cocao. So I have done just. Back to yoga tomorrow to get this new energy flowing.


2017 has been an intense year for almost every person I have spoke with. Listen to your intuition that is guiding you what is best for you. It’s okay to say, “No” or “Yes” without needing to justify it to yourself or anyone else. Be easy. As we are coming to almost the last 2 months of the year – am I the only person who wants to know where da fuck 2017 went?! I feel like so much has happened, in my inner and outer world, it’s like I’ve gone through a time warp and a year of my life has flown by. Unbelievable! Time is indeed precious. Our time has value, so I’m extra mindful on where and whom I’m spending it with. I’d encourage you to do the same.

I’ve been listening to this song. The lyrics in this song, although talking about someone who is struggling with drugs, has reminded me of how 2017 has been for the majority of people this year – tough, heartbreaking, soul searching, full of deaths (literal and spiritual) and rebirths etc.

“If you look into the distance, there’s a house upon the hill
Guiding like a lighthouse, it’s a place where you’ll be
Safe to feel at grace and if you’ve lost your way
If you’ve lost your way (I will leave the light on)
And I know you don’t know oh, but I need you to be brave
Hiding from the truth ain’t gonna make this all okay
I’ll see your pain if you don’t feel our grace
And you’ve lost your way
I will leave the light on
I will leave the light on
‘Cause I will leave the light on”

As you listen to this song, think of me. I will leave the light on for you. For those of you reading this now, if you need someone to hold space for you, to talk to, to ask their perspective, to just listen – I will do my best to be that person for you. Come exactly as you are. This year has reminded me of the importance of connection. The real – beyond ‘how’s the weather?’ – connection. The understanding that we never have to do this alone, as we are an INTERdependant species. I am NOT an expert, and will never proclaim to know all the answers, or even give you “advice” unless you ask. I just want to serve as a reminder of that innate connection we all have, but have been conditioned to believe otherwise.

Together we are so much more; together life IS easier. For some of you, I’m a stranger on the Internet. For others, perhaps I’m one of your soul sisters. For everyone else, maybe I’m somewhere in between. That need not matter. I have had so much support over this year during my difficult times, now that I’m riding the ride, instead of barely keeping my head above the water, I want to give back – pay it forward – more than before with this open call from my heart to yours. My heart is more open now than ever. If you feel led to, connect with me in the comment section below, or on my Facebook Page.

If you don’t feel led to reach out to me, let this be a reminder that wherever you are, however you feel, there is someone who cares about you that would be happy to support you – just as you are. That whatever struggles you going through right now, you don’t need to do it alone. You can if you want to take the more difficult road. The road that I believe often times leads to suffering. You will be amazed at what vulnerability will do to your relationships – platonic and romantic. I’m speaking from this year’s experiences I’ve had with my tribe and my relationships have never been better – more authentic, more raw, more fulfilling with an ease and love has filled our connections, and interactions. I can tell you it feels so damn good! This is what I call Soul Food.

I promise you’ll be ok. I See You.

With big, big love,
S.

The Cure – Lady Gaga Soul Food

I cannot get enough of this song. I don’t believe we can “fix” anyone, so I dedicated this song to myself from me. I put on my headphones on max volume, headed to the bathroom (big mirror and good acoustics) ;), danced and sang my heart out – on repeat. It’s another song that brought happy tears to my eyes.

“So baby tell me yes
And I will give you everything
So baby tell me yes
And I will be all yours tonight
So baby tell me yes
And I will give you everything
I will be right by your side

If I can’t find the cure, I’ll
I’ll fix you with my love
No matter what you know, I’ll
I’ll fix you with my love
And if you say you’re okay
I’m gonna heal you anyway
Promise I’ll always be there
Promise I’ll be the cure (be the cure)”

Mmm hmm. ❤

Soul soothing. Vibe raising. Dance partying goodness.

Big love,
S. xo

I’m Back!… (Sort of)

I have been away for far too long! My fingers and mind are craving sharing with you all again. I have been having a busy summer since the hot, sunny weather seemed to have taken it’s sweet time getting here; my Canadian friends will know what I am talking about! With that being said, there’s much I have to share but am going to save it for my next entry, which I promise will not be months from today. 🙂

I leave you with these tunes – I can’t seem to get enough of them! They sooth my soul and I am hoping you enjoy them too.

With love xo

And shout out to those of you who found their way to me, on here or my Facebook page, despite my absence! 🙂 Thank you for all the love!

Can You Feel It?

I can feel this song in my soul. I heard this tonight at yoga during our relaxation pose; I loved it so much I had to share it with all of you.

The energies are high lately – can you feel them? No matter how what’s going on in your life now, let this picture below be a reminder of how awesome you are. You are a piece of the infinite universe manifested in this crazy, beautiful world for a short period of time. In other words, you ARE the Universe and you are fucking amazing! Shine on my beautiful friends!

Remind yourself of this every morning until it you re-member what you've forgotten
Remind yourself of this every morning until it you re-member what you’ve forgotten

Namaste,

Cultural Twist to a Popular Pop Song

Swedish House Mafia – Don’t You Worry Child Cover

I shared this on my Facebook page but this was too amazing not to share for all of you to listen. I loved the original but now I love this song even more. As soon as the chorus started, I got goosebumps all over!

I love when different cultures fuse their music – we are all one anyways right?! 🙂

Is there a certain kind of music that is in a different culture/language – that just speaks to your soul? Native American, African, and Celtic music seem to speak to my past lives me thinks. What about you? Share with me in the comments below!

With love,

This is my favorite song right now. The lyrics are beautiful and so is her voice. I regularly blast the volume and sing my heart out to this one – kind of like I’m doing right now. 🙂

Kick back, relax and sing your heart out, peeps!

“Maybe we’re a little different, there’s no need to be ashamed…

Yeah we’re all wonderful, wonderful people. So when we did all get so fearful? Now we’re finally finding our voices so take a chance, come help me sing this…”

Much love,

Enjoy!
