Cancer Goddess Rises: Day 1

Cancer Goddess Rises: Day 1

I have cancer — again I fucking have cancer. I have fucking cancer. Fuck, I have cancer. Fuck cancer. Love cancer so much that it becomes powerless. I win. This is the story of me and my soulmate and how we truly — for the first time in our lives — step into our Magic, harness our superpowers, become our true selves, banish our fears, and really live. You watch. This is going to happen. It’s either Become Awesome or die, so why hold back? Thought it was appendicitis. Nope, cancer. Blame Google? Denial? I went to the ER thinking I...

25 Ways to Be Beautiful Today

Growing up, I never thought I was beautiful (or talented, or smart, or useful, but those are other stories). My mother — now, she was beautiful. At least, according to my dad. Maybe it was because I read a lot of fairy tales filled with competing princesses and queens but I grew up believing there was only room in my house for one beautiful woman. And that crown was claimed. I wanted to be beautiful. No one called me beautiful. If they did, I didn’t believe it. I already knew it wasn’t true. Looking back, I see that what I really...

How To Be a Woman

I have some serious girl crushes. This morning I sat in the butter-yellow leather chair downstairs with my feet in a tub of hot water and read Penelope Trunk. I have sort of a love-hate relationship with Penelope Trunk (something she said once pissed me off), but today it is all love because this morning, with my feet in hot water, I recognized myself in her writing. And, for the first time, seeing and knowing myself felt good. At the beginning of the month I felt stuck and frustrated in figuring out how to do and talk about what it is I do...

How to Get Through Changing Times

Sometimes things seem to just come at you. All at once. And then you’re buried by an avalanche of overwhelm, just hoping to carve out a tiny breathing space because you’ve forgotten what “normal” is like. Ever feel like that? If you do, you’re not alone. We live in a changing world. Some people say that the speed of change has increased. But if you are feeling uneasy or challenged by changes taking place within you and around you, there is help.

10 Ways to Un-stress in Under Ten Minutes

De-stress FAST. Quick:  ten things you can do right now — in ten minutes or less — to feel more alive, more awake, and more space to feel You again. 1. Take a bath. While a twenty-minute bath is awesome,  just ten minutes of scented  hot-water bliss can turn a day from ARGH to AHH. Make it  really hot. Essential oils? Yes, please. Detox? Add a cup of sea salt. 2. Give your hands a break. Many of us carry tension in our hands. Mine used feel like claws some days. Take a break and massage your hands yourself, or get someone else to....

What to do when you’re freaking out and scared

Okay, you’re scared. It’s time to talk about scared. Fine. I am one to talk. I spent the better part of an hour today freaking out inside and feeling super scared about something that is going on right now in my life. A big something with a capital B-big. After an hour of feeling scared, I thought that was enough. So I decided to do something about it. And I am going to tell you what I did to talk myself through my scaredyness and freaking out-y-ness, because I know that sometimes you feel scared. And it feels terrible. I know it...

How I spanned the gap & brought my magic back

How I spanned the gap & brought my magic back

For the past year, I lived with my feet securely on the ground. No magic. No limitless possibility. Only a dwindling checkbook and a body that didn’t work all that well. Facebook does a total number on me sometimes. I see friends flying off to Hawaii to study with shamans. Holding webinars and telesummits. Attending conferences. Being all businessy awesome and sharing their gifts with the world. My friends seem to get bigger, while I feel myself becoming smaller. Life has slowed to a crawl. And all I see in those times is the lack, the...

I don’t mean to make it look easy

Hi, I’m Talyaa Hi, I’m Talyaa and I’m rewriting my About Me page. Hi, I’m Talyaa and I’m rewriting my About Me page because I realized something. My About Me is not about me. It’s about the Me I wanted you to see. So, let me start over. Hi, I’m Talyaa and I am an Image Maintainer. I care what you think about me. I care so much that I don’t even realize what I am doing when I carefully craft what I say in a way that is I want you to think about me. Or glosses over the parts I don’t want you...

The Time Breastfeeding Cover, Mommy Wars, and Mother’s Day

The Time Breastfeeding Cover, Mommy Wars, and Mother’s Day. Can the Mommy Wars please be over? And while we’re at it, how about we abolish breastfeeding-as-a-political-act. Oh, and Mother’s Day. Let’s do away with Mother’s Day. [OMG, I think I will be drummed out of the Motherhood Club. Wait, I already have been.] Have you seen Time Magazine’s May 21, 2012 cover? It’s hard to miss. It’s the one showing a hot young mom with her three-year-old son, who’s standing on a chair with his...

Say What You Want

By learning how to tap into our wants, we can feel more empowered, more whole, and more joyful. More like a Wild Goddess. Maybe, like me, you're good at saying what you don't want. Or maybe you think about your wants only in terms of what you think is possible. Never fear -- you CAN learn to overcome common difficulties many women have and tap into your Inner Goddess to say what you want.

The Power Of A Name

The Power Of A Name

In October 2010 I changed my name from Karen Murphy to Talyaa Liera. A bold move. This is what I wrote in October 2010: Names are our most personal possession. It is through our name that we announce to the world who we are. Our name brings what is inside us out and allows people to find a connection to us. In many cultures around the world, one’s first name is reserved  for family and close friends and is a private thing shared only in intimacy. Names carry energy. Our names not only serve as a way to identify and differentiate us from...
