“When I feel triggered by another woman where I feel competitive or jealous, my practice is to look at it and say, ‘Okay. What is she embodying that’s lacking in me for any reason? And how can I remind myself that I have access to that also? And how can I then focus on cultivating more of that in my life, rather than projecting on this innocent being who’s just being fucking fabulous?’”

As a journalist and editor, my whole career has been about sharing other people’s stories—showcasing their talents, celebrating their creativity, giving a voice to their traumas, and promoting their projects and careers. It was only when my book came out, and experiencing the EXTREME discomfort of doing this for myself, that I realized I had stayed behind the scenes because it felt safe there.
And not just because it meant not being seen, and therefore protecting myself from judgement—but also because being in the “giving” position (giving exposure, publicity, a platform, to others) meant I was the one in control. I held all the power. Because, as writes in today’s post on running a spiritual business: “To receive (support, praise, acknowledgement, LOVE) we need to be open and vulnerable. This is challenging.”
Challenging because I have not trusted that I would be supported in my work. I have not believed that others would find value in what I have to say. I have not dared to ask for help, because I have not believed that it would be given. And this year, I have been proved wrong … and I have also been proved right. And that’s the way of the world.
This year (and since Saturn has been in Sagittarius, my Rising sign, signifying how I am seen), I’ve also learned that when you have something to say, when you have created something that you believe to be of value, and when you have pain that needs a voice so that it can be healed, you do not stay behind the scenes. >>>

Shout out to all the new Moon Club members who joined during our birthday promo period - and I can’t wait to get to know you better and to share the teachings and mission of our community. When we rebranded to celebrate our one-year mooniversary we redefined our mission statement as: Find Your Voice. Own Your Story. Serve the World. This is the definition of “self-healing” to me, and a healing of the self that helps to heal the world.
is just one example of how speaking up and believing that our voice and our version of events counts as much as any other can have a HUGE ripple effect on a community. I have personally heard stories about people using the momentum of this global campaign to speak up about family situations, for example, that has unearthed and helped to heal generations of silence and shame.
Never underestimate the power of finding a voice for your truth - and the tools and practices, like the ones we teach in Moon Club, to help you do this. PLUS if you want to get deeeeeep into this work Alexandra and I are co-leading a retreat Jan 1-5 with and Check it out at my profile link - and DM me if u have any Qs!⚡️🦋⚡️

2017. Rounding out this year it feels like every conversation I have begins: “wow, what lessons, what medicine, what growth, what discomfort ... And now just watch me apply all this newfound muscle, and grit, and awareness, and self-love, and knock it out of the park in 2018!”

Mercury Retrograde lessons “Betrayal” has felt like a theme for me at some points this year, and each and every time I’ve felt “let down” or taken advantage of - in retrospect (literally the gift of Merc retro) I’ve been able to see that it’s always been about me. My own wounds being triggered. My own shadow self being shown to me. My own failure to communicate my needs clearly. AND an opportunity for me to learn how not to project my own s*it onto others.
