Life

Writer, artist, and reiki practitioner

One of my favorite aspects of Medium is its sense of community. There truly is nothing more critical to living a fulfilling and meaningful existence than participating in life! I’m grateful for the opportunity to share in so many of the awesome experiences and stories that I find on this platform. In that spirit, I’d like to offer a bit about myself, joining the ranks of the countless others sharing their mini-biographies.

My humble roots

I grew up in Detroit Michigan… in a Polish household. Some of my most vivid memories are between the age of five and eight. I think those tender…


Energy, awakening, grounding, and evolution

Do you find yourself constantly living in survival mode? Does each new day feel burdened with anxiety and fear almost before it even begins? Is it hard to relax without worry overriding your thoughts? These are all signs of an imbalance of the root chakra. Here’s what you need to know set things right!

Staying in tune with our bodies is vital to our quality of life. Many of us are only vaguely familiar with the existence of chakras, having little or no idea of how to maximize their potential within our own bodies. Each of our chakra centers is…


Adding a bit of magic to our lives

Beautiful prismatic chambers of light, elegant offerings from the earth, crystals are so much more than meets the eye.

You don’t need to be a geologist or privy to the world of alternative medicine to have heard the buzz surrounding crystals. Their uses range far and wide often bordering on the mystical. These exquisitely mysterious minerals have penetrated the hearts of people and entire cultures around the globe, not just recently, but for centuries.

“A turquoise given by a loving hand carries with it happiness and good fortune.”

— Arabic proverb


Five steps to live by if you don’t have a green thumb

We’ve all had a little green thumb envy. I’m the first to confess. As a child, visiting my aunt's house on weekends I’d like to say it’s the stimulating conversation and summer BBQ antics I remember the most… but it’s not. No, most summer evenings you could find me snuggled up in her reading room nestled in amongst the perky potted trees and willowy ivy daintily hanging in their macrame hammocks. Even as a child I instinctively felt the power and subtle majesty of plants. They made the atmosphere feel fresh and comforting.

Fast-forward to thirty-five-year-old me. Now I’m the…


Self Care

Because you’re worth it

You work hard every day to take care of others.

Today… do something nice for… you.

Make a fancy breakfast for… you.

Splurge on a delicious cappuccino on the way to work.

Tonight, zone out to your favorite Netflix series… in your comfy clothes… cell phone in another room.

Relationships

Be the light you want to see in the world

Forgiveness is our superpower. We choose to allow it or keep it tucked away in our pocket, almost as though held for ransom. Yes, forgiving is better than holding in the anger and pain. Yes, forgiving helps everyone involved to move on. We’ve all heard, and can probably agree, that forgiveness is healthy. But that's not really why we should do it.

This realization came to me yesterday as I was mulling over the dilemma of a close friend. A childhood riddled with hardship, divorce, lies, and turmoil has left…
