  • International Women's Day 2022 👯‍♀️

    I love to reflect on the women who came before me in my lineage, my culture, my country, and even my international community  — women who have endured a lot over the centuries!

    I’m having a lot of feels about the topic this year in particularly, probably because I’m really passionate about the world being a better place for women.

  • Affirmation vs. Mantra: What's the difference?

    Many people interchange the words "mantra" and "affirmation". They are similar in the fact that they are both used for mindfulness practices, but they are actually quite a bit different!
  • Affirmations for Every Relationship Status during the "Month of Love"

    One great way to better relationships is by maintaining a mindset of positivity and gratitude through the use of affirmations.

  • The Power of Positive Affirmations

    Affirmations are present-tense declarations about the life you want to live, repeated regularly. These statements help you change the way you think and feel about your life situation, your relationships and yourself. Infusing these positive declarations into your daily life in the form of written or spoken "affirmations" is extremely helpful for overall mental health and wellbeing. When you speak positive words to yourself, you enhance your internal locus of control, see yourself in a more positive light, and establish a positive mindset to help you create a life you love.
  • Where to begin with Affirmations

    I wish I could tell you one of those unbelievable stories about how I started speaking affirmations and then - BAM - I got everything I was writing down overnight…

    but I think we all know that overnight glory isn’t the “proof” that affirmations work, nor is it even the point.


  • The first 4 steps to an elevated home (and life)

    We all strive to have an inviting home. One that feels like a breath of fresh air, to us and our beloveds. But the truth is that our homes are imperfect, messy places, just like ourselves.
  • The Genesis of Ruju

    What if I take my lifelong interest in geometric symbolism and create a modern-day rune?


    What if each symbol’s meaning was an affirmation?


    What if these runic symbols were displayed within modern, minimalist home decor?
