Go slowly

Go slowly. Each season or year, a word bubbles up so strongly from my spirit, I can’t escape it, I can’t ignore it. It pulls me in and holds me so tight, I must embrace and bear witness to the word. The word stalks me relentlessly. I hear it in my dreams and I see signs of it everywhere go. So when the word for this season revealed itself to me, I was taken aback, terrified, almost. Because it entailed a shift in the way I live and do things. Go slowly. I know the word of the season is meant to motivate and guide me and bring out some things in me. But can I just be real here for a minute? I am so struggling with going slowly. Slow is hard for me. I’m not even sure if my brain is wired to go slow. My friends and family…

Embracing your intuition

I love this woman. She is intuitive, bears a quiet strength and has an uncanny ability to shows up when I’m at a crossroads and need to decide how to navigate my next move. She has an amazing ability to get me thinking and vibrating  on a higher, deeper level and knows the questions to ask to pull out the answers that are already within. She is a friend, a mentor, a wise woman and has contributed in my personal evolution. This morning as I was scrolling through my Facebook feeds I stumbled upon this video of Tash Mitch sharing wisdom and truth bombs on intuition and accessing and embracing your inner voice. It was very informative and I think anyone that struggles with accessing their inner voice and intuition will find value in listening to it. Now the video below is about 40 mins long, but Tash’s segment on…

Sneak-peek of documentary feature

Happy International Women’s Day! In case you did not know, International Women’s Day is celebrated on March 8 every year to commemorate the movement for women’s rights. Today, I thought it would be good to give you a sneak-peek into an interview I did with documentary filmmaker Carla Reboucas and Ms. Gloria Payne-Banfield. Carla is from Brazil and sails the world with her father and his crew capturing stories. Her crew berthed in Grenada for about a week to do some work on their boat before heading to Panama and then on to the Polynesian Islands. Whilst exploring the island, Carla had a chance encounter with my friend who is also a documentary filmmaker. They chatted for a while and never thought they’s see each other again. Fate had a different plan, and we ended up running into them at a restaurant later that day. She invited us to dinner on her boat…

Let’s talk parenting and discipline

So we put out a survey to some of our Cocktails & Convo attendees to get an idea on what topics they’d like us to discuss at our monthly meet-ups.

#domoredreamless plot twist

Ever since I announced in the group the dreams/goals I’d be focusing on over the next three months, I’ve been feeling unsettled in my spirit. I’m not religious but deeply spiritual. A connection with my spirit side informs the way I live, lead and try to show up in the world. I try to live in recognition that there is a Higher Power that wants to guide and lead me in the direction I need to be. I believe that if I am to go in the right direction, I must be attuned and attentive to the Spirit. I’m restless. Things are calling me away. My hair is being pulled by the stars again. – Anaïs Nin Restlessness and feelings of being pulled in another direction are common signs that I need to pause and reflect. I decided to tap into my Spirit through journaling, reflection, meditation and prayer and have decided that for…
