Mind Over Matter

Mind Over Matter

As a child, I loved swimming.  I played in the ocean and wouldn’t miss the opportunity to play in the pool, splash around, swim to the deep end and lay out all day in the sun.  Then, I had an incident, in childhood, in which I slipped and hurt myself in the pool, panicked and nearly drowned…

Moontime Magic:  Healing your Monthly Flow with Crystals

Moontime Magic: Healing your Monthly Flow with Crystals

If you’re anything like me, you have mixed feelings about your moontime (menstrual cycle) and the energies that accompany that powerful time of the month.  One one hand, you connect with the ancient culture that honored a women’s monthly bleeding as a sacred time for deep introspection, rest and re-connection.  On the other, headaches, emotional instability, irritability, sweet cravings and a bloated belly create a less than desirable physical environment for tuning into your inner wisdom and celebrating your wombanhood.

Sacred Smoke:  The Ritual of Smudging

Sacred Smoke: The Ritual of Smudging

Have you ever noticed that most times in sacred ceremonies, temples, places of worship and rituals around the world, no matter what symbols or prayers are used, one thing that is universally present is the use of sacred smoke?  Beyond aromatic scents, in many traditions, sacred smoke bridges the gap between the seen and unseen.  The practice of burning sage, palo santo, resins, or other dried herbs in personal smudging rituals combines ancient cultural, ceremonial, spiritual and medicinal teachings of

Tapping into your Soul’s Essence

Tapping into your Soul’s Essence

When was the last time you saw deeply into your own heart and soul? When was the last time you relished in the purest expression of you, unbound by physical form or passing emotion? When was the last time you looked into your own eyes and saw your inner beauty, brilliance and radiance? When you look deeply into yourself, behind the “veil” of titles, personal possessions, worldly commitments, mental barriers and physical limitations, you begin to see your true essence… your spirit

As we approach what will be a historic celestial event next week, I send you love, support, encouragement and beautiful rays of hope as you are moved into new chapters and ways of being.  Next Monday, August 21, we will experience the first total solar eclipse visible from coast to coast since 1918.

Walking Your Sacred Path

Walking Your Sacred Path

You have been sent out into the world for a purpose, requiring you to enter life experiences with different states of mind, different levels of awareness of yourself and others, and different relationships with the world itself.  In this life of purpose and direction, you must build the foundation for everything you want to manifest, in love, money, health, relationships, career, energy…for whatever you wish to create in your life!  You must build and cultivate the awareness of your destiny and the need for it, in order to walk your sacred path.  You must be present for your sacred path and learn how to access your state of inner

Why you can RELAX on STARTING goals in the New Year…

Why you can RELAX on STARTING goals in the New Year…

I love the energy of possibility, freshness, and the sense of starting over that a new year brings. This time of year often inspires a renewed sense of purpose and determination.  I also like the idea of setting resolutions and goals for the new year, but if you were to ask me what my 2016 resolutions were, I’d tell you, “I honestly can’t remember!”.  For many people, it’s things like “lose weight”, “enjoy life to the fullest”, “fall in love”, “spend more time with family and friends”, “save more money”, “travel more”, and so on.  And although these are all beautiful goals, winter is actually a time for setting goals, not starting goals.  Winter is a

How to Enjoy the Energy of the Holiday Season While Staying Vibrant and Stress-Free!

“Let us cherish the gift of life, love, family, friends, health and peace of mind this holiday season” – Beachbum Wisdom

I can hardly believe that 2017 is almost here!   The holiday season is officially in full swing all over Mother Earth and it is such a treat to spend more time with family, cozy up with warm tea and a favorite blanket, and be in the spirit of the holidays and celebration. Allow me keep it real though… the holiday season also comes with less sunlight (those that personally know me, know that I’m not feeling that at all), stress, crazy busy weeks, and overwhelm for so many people… self included.

A Dream Come True… I Hosted My Very First International Travel Retreat in Bali, Indonesia!

 

Earlier this year, in partnership with a dear friend and spiritual sister of mine who shares the same love for sacred travel, exploration, healing, nature, sisterhood and holistic teachings, I launched Holistic Goddess Retreats.  Holistic Goddess Retreats is a sacred travel experience company that provides unique opportunities for women (and sometimes men) to vacation in a meaningful way, to some of the most sacred destinations on Earth.  Our very first international retreat took place in one of my favorite places, Bali Indonesia, this past October.  Along with 11 other women from all over the states, I embarked on a journey

What Does “Holistic Health” Mean, Anyway?!

What Does “Holistic Health” Mean, Anyway?!

“Find joy in taking care of yourself… Mind, Body, and Spirit.”

In a recent interview by Chelsea Cooper of Lean Body Fit Camp here in Long Beach, CA, I was asked about the basics of holistic living and weight loss.  More and more individuals are becoming aware of the mind-body-spirit connection (yay!) with all of our interconnected parts, and are now seeking products and activities to participate in that make them feel good all over – Chelsea’s clients are no exception, and have been interested in learning more about what they can do to naturally achieve greater health.
