Heh, wait! This isn’t feminism

Heh, wait! This isn’t feminism

Heh, wait a minute. Feminism is about equality, not the belittling or putting down of men.

What happened this morning in my yoga class is typical of the types of responses I’m hearing from women lately.

My yoga teacher, “Well, now that we only have women in the class this morning, we can join together in the sisterhood and actually get the job done, because we all know men are the lazier sex.”

Most of the women in the room chuckle. I’m saddened.

Why is it ok to talk about men like this!? I know a lot of men that aren’t lazy.

This group of women would be insulted if it were said about them. They’d say it was sexism. Women being insulted and put down again.

I was born a feminist. I’ve been fighting for my female rights all of my life. You may not know this about me because in my public life I chose to focus on other things—mostly the spiritual work, soul purpose, energy medicine, chakras, etc. But those of you that know me personally, you know I’m a firecracker for feminism.

(That’s also one of the reasons I moved to Europe—because I’ve experienced German culture + women to be more emancipated.)

For most of my life I’ve been criticised, bullied, shamed, and shunned. By my family, my church, the community, and other women (who, oddly, I thought I was standing up for) . . . All because I was born a feminist and had feminist views much earlier than my peers.

I also can say #MeToo.

But, I stand for equality. Love for our fellow brothers as well as sisters of the light.

I stand for peace, love, and support. Not name calling or exclusion.

Stand up for your feminist rights, but love your man (men) fiercely and wholly while you do it.

Let’s create equality.

in White Light + Love,

I have some important news that I want to share with you … After much thought, soul searching, and heartache I've decided to close my online school, School of the Modern Mystic®.  As you may already know, I created School of the Modern Mystic® in 2013. This was a time when there weren't many—or maybe any—online schools and courses for modern mystics and spiritual seekers. My intention in founding the school was clear: I wanted to bring the "teachings", those spiritual practices that had radically improved my life and those of my clients, to everyone.

For me, finding hope in the darkness is not about wanting the darkness to go away or stop. It's about learning to find my way within it. For whatever reason, darkness doesn't—hasn't—frightened me the way it seems to frighten others.

What!? Are we really at the end of 2017? My goodness, where did this year go?  I honestly don't know. Suddenly it was January 1st, 2017, and just as suddenly it's almost January 1st, 2018. This year felt like a shinkansen (bullet train). In a blink of an eye, it's passed. If you're anything like me, you also found this year challenging. It was difficult, stretching, and confronting. It was shadowy. For me it was a year of deep revelations and even deeper lessons. I learned a ton. I cried a ton. And truth be told, I struggled a ton, too.
