An Intuitive Lifestyle is Possible

I asked her point blank – “Do you think I could ever do intuitive readings like you?” She laughed, my intuitive friend, and she had this laugh like silver bells. “Of course you can – you just have to learn how.” When I was about 20, I read “Anatomy of the Spirit” by Carolynn Myss and was immediately transfixed. I … Read More

The things I did to be liked

I have a really deep wound.  Some would call it a sister wound, in that it was inflicted when I was very young by someone I believed to be a female ally. And while I knew it was affecting me, I’ve just recently been shown just how this unhealed wound has been sabotaging my relationships. The incident itself is not … Read More

Why a protection shield of white light doesn’t work

Protection isn’t the solution to a porous energy field. There’s this common “knowledge” in the spiritual world that anyone in need of spiritual/psychic protection need only to invoke a protection shield of white light around them and then – abra-cadabra! – you’re protected! Except you probably aren’t. (Especially if that’s the only thing you’re doing). Nope – you’re still picking … Read More

To see in the dark

The morning air is crisp and cool and the harvest moon is bright in my window. It’s autumn – the last days of September. And while the media would like to remind me that this is the time to buy new sweaters and swap my home brewed coffee for a pumpkin spice everything, I’m being called to notice that we … Read More

How mountain biking helps me regulate my nervous system

“Ready for a tow-in, Anna?” he asked, swatting away a mosquito as he sat on his low-slung bike seat and readied one foot on his pedals. “Yeah,” I said, “Let’s do it.” He pedaled forward and, not wanting to get further behind than two or three bike-lengths, I placed the sticky rubber soles of my biking shoes just “so” atop … Read More

Episode 11: An Intuitive learns to trust herself

Today I’m getting personal. In this episode, I talk about what a morning in my household looks like (it’s not the perfect morning you might imagine), and then tell you about the one-on-one clairvoyant readings I do and how they’ve helped my clients. I walk you back through parts of my history, back to some of the first spiritual experiences … Read More

You’re a delicate snowflake – and winter is coming

There is a lot of advice in the world for highly sensitive people that says something along the lines of: “You’re fragile. Turn off the news, turn away from the upsetting parts of life, take a nap, take a bath, get a massage and spend more time to yourself.” The intention behind this advice, I believe, is good. The intention … Read More

They should have known I’d start my own rebellion

It was spring. The lawn in the backyard was still brown, but the snow had melted. It was cool enough that you needed a jacket, but not if you were just running to the neighbor’s house, which is where I was. It was 1989 or so. I had spent most of the morning at one of my friend’s house. Our … Read More

High vibes are not enough

You think you need to heal the whole world. I know this, because I am that way too. You can’t listen to the news because the problems seem to big. When you hear about the world’s problems, you don’t just see how it affects you and where you might be responsible, you see how it affects your family, your community, plants, animals, the whole world – … Read More

What does it take to live a sensitive life?

What does it mean to live a life of authentic sensitivity? What I mean is – what does it look like to live a life as a highly sensitive individual who honors and leads from their sensitivity? Just for a moment, I’d like you to imagine that you had the life of your highly sensitive dreams. Your life is set … Read More

What is your way within your movement?

I am in awe of the women who write with the kind of angry fire that drives social justice movements forward. I am enamored by the women who write about sexism with a flurry of curse words and wit and humor and whip-sharp intelligence. I am impressed by women who run courses to dismantle white supremacy, who hold seminars and … Read More
