Holy cow, I wrote a book!

Hello my lovelies, About two years ago I became intensely curious. HAD to know, once and for all, what it really meant to be a woman. I know, right? I’d been a woman all my life. I should know this stuff inside and out, like the literal back of my hand. But I didn’t. I’ll wager many of us don’t. We live in a world where being-a-woman often looks a lot like being-a-man. I knew there was a difference. I had a picture in my mind. I created this entire website around that picture — Wild Goddess Life. I wrote a wonderful...

Cancer Update: For The Win!

Cancer Update: For The Win!

If you’re following along at home, I have good news. Had a new round of scans not long ago. These things have become routine. We know the deal: where to park, what hospital entrance to go in, how to navigate the warren of labyrinthian hallways between the place you go for CT scans and the place you go for MRIs. We know where there is cell service and which receptionists are the nicest. They say once you get really familiar with something, it’s time to move on. Or maybe it’s me saying that, because I am clearly winning...

Claiming My Artist-Priestess Archetype: I Am An Artist

Claiming My Artist-Priestess Archetype: I Am An Artist

I’ve reframed That Which I Do into the context of art. This shift will very soon show up in a big way on my website, but for now, wouldn’t you like to hear the story? It’s been a long road getting here. Art has always been in the background for me. Lurking underneath. As a child my art-dreams got squashed in criticism and comparisons. I’m sure my father didn’t mean to beat me down,  and instead was probably trying to boost my mom, but when you’re a kid and your every artistic effort gets compared to...

No More Pollyanna

No More Pollyanna

Oh god oh god oh god I’ve been lying. About my condition. To you and to myself. Sure, yes, my physical condition is better than it was. Certainly from a year ago — even from six months ago — there’s been an improvement. Big improvement. From hardly standing to yay-the-yoga. All the things I said in my last post are true. Except…I put a way more positive spin on things than was real. For many reasons, and I’ll spill them all here I promise. I need to talk about this. I really really really wanted it to be true If...

The One About My Body; or, My Body Rocks Nine Ways

Hello you beauties! It’s time for a little tête-à-tête. Here, have some Valentine’s Day chocolate while I sip my tea and tell you about all the exciting things my body is doing. You may recall last fall I had scans and they were good news. Good news in my brain and good news in my bod. But here’s some stuff you don’t know, an update to the last time I wrote about this stuff: 1. I’m gaining weight. Kahuna calls me a horker. He’s kidding, of course, but weighing less than three digits was a sign of Bad...

Embrace Your Wild Heart: A Letter To My Daughter On Her 14th Birthday

Embrace Your Wild Heart: A Letter To My Daughter On Her 14th Birthday

Dear Sweetcake, I remember the day of your birth. You were the wild one. Somehow I knew this, and in giving birth to you I wanted nothing more than to surrender completely to the wildness within me, your fluttering bird-beating heart so close to mine, entwined by a purple pulsating cord. I went into the place all women know when they let themselves know it, the place of deep surrender. To the nurses this looked like screaming and they shushed me, afraid that the wildness — yours and mine — would frighten the woman across the hall who did...

Advice To A Young Man: An Open Letter To My Son On His 18th Birthday

Advice To A Young Man: An Open Letter To My Son On His 18th Birthday

Dear Son,   Today you are a man. In the eyes of the law, you are a man. I know, right? Weird? After all this time as a kid? But it’s true. You can vote. You can drive. You can fight and die for your country. Voting, driving, and fighting don’t make you a man any more than your shoe size makes you a man. There are many so-called men out there wearing what amounts to clown shoes. They are not men. They are boys wearing the bodies of men. But let’s not dwell on them. I’m here to tell you what I think a man is. How to...

CANCER UPDATE: Brain MRI & Power in Numbers

CANCER UPDATE: Brain MRI & Power in Numbers

All right, Magic. I believe in you. No, really. I’m a believer. I also believe in taking a stand. Being one’s best authority. Not giving up. Overcoming challenges against huge odds. I believe in love. In the amazing hearts of people. In our infinite capacity to heal. In limitless possibility. Today’s date:  11-12-13.  At 9:10 am, on 11-12-13, I lay inside an MRI tube while machines whirred and clunked and took images of my magnificent brain. I spoke to Parvati, to Lakshmi, to Shiva, to the Force of Infinite Presence. I...

Mindful Communication: Examine the Deep Whys & Open Your Heart

Mindful Communication: Examine the Deep Whys & Open Your Heart

Nope. I’m not afraid of Mercury Retrograde! We’re in a deep one right now, in Scorpio (October 21 – November 10, so it’s almost over, my duckies). Mercury is alllll about communication, while Scorpio helps us access the dark underbelly of our souls. This is the perfect time to go deep and speak from the soul with a new level of integrity. Ta da! That’s how one of my newest practices was born. Digging Deep for the Whys I’ve begun to look at The Why behind everything I do or say, both in person and online. As...

Cancer Update: PET-CT Scan and the Power of Group Magic

Hello Loves, A week ago yesterday I had a PET scan. Partly as a diagnostic tool — I’ve never had one and they reveal valuable information about the metabolic activity of cancer in the body, plus often light up teeny areas not easily seen on other types of scans — and partly as a checkup, a how’m-I-doing evaluation. I was not nervous going in, and in fact felt pretty awesome about it. A little help….? The night before the scan, the Divine gave me the idea to ask for a little help. Create a PARTY around my scan, much like...

Ripping off my Chameleon Cape of Invisibility

Ripping off my Chameleon Cape of Invisibility

For as long as I can remember, I've had a strong desire to be liked. Is this universal? I keep thinking I'm tricking myself into believing we all want to be liked. In our ancestral tribal past, fitting in meant survival (unless you were the leader, in which case you'd better have other qualities like spear-throwing or mastodon-chucking to compensate for being a dick). But I suspect it goes deeper than simple hardwiring for me. I've concocted a cape of elaborate chameleon qualities over the years in an effort to be liked.

My search for Magic

My search for Magic

I joined a Facebook group this week. (Yes, another one. I adore online community.) Over nine weeks we are exploring the nine DYI energy experiments from Pam Grout's book E-squared. I figured I had this thing locked down. It'd be fun, I thought. So easy! After all, energy is my THING. I am a channel. Intuitive. Energy healer. Dakini. I got this thing nailed down tight.
