Today is my birthday, and I awoke to people sending me birthday messages adding that they feel sorry that today is my birthday. Please know: I do not feel sorry. I'm a Scorpio; going deep into the darkness and coming out with light is my specialty. I grew up knowing my birthday was on Kristallnacht. The Berlin Wall fell today in 1989. It's a powerful day, filled with intense history.
The only certain thing right now is massive uncertainty. It feels like everything has been upended. We are clearly in a powerful period of change and transformation and that feels scary. Yet stress--and even dreaded associated emotions like grief, fear and shock--help us focus on what is important to us, our essentials. The universe uses these moments as tools that help us evolve to the next level and become better versions of ourselves. Since we are in this moment whether we want to be or not, we can make use of the extreme forces we are feeling. Consider this pressure as that which turns coal into diamonds.
May these forces transform each of us into the diamonds that we are. May we have strength. May we have sparkle and brightness. May we give ourselves to one another with open hearts and love. May we bring joy to one another. And may we have the impeccable clarity to manifest our values and our truth as powerfully as we can.
The election results set me ever more strongly in my purpose. I can't control the details of what happens with this President. But I know what my job is. I am here to embody love and light and truth in an active way. My whole life's work is to support transformation during difficult times. For me, there is no room for fear and grief because staying focused on my work is too important. Your work is, too. (And if it's not, find work that is). I believe without a trace of doubt that we can navigate this period with grace. And with that, I send huge love to you all and share my birthday blessings. <3

The food industry has been busy buying the vote...
The CDC is compromised. The British Medical Journal weighs in.
If a structure is not built with integrity, it will crumble.
CNN is finally covering the ongoing events at Standing Rock. Violations of sacred Native American land are not just something that happened hundreds of years ago, way in the distant past. They are happening right now, today, by our own government. Even our presidential candidates, including HRC, are silent as peaceful protesters face a massively armed military presence, native folks are being arrested en masse, press members are being arrested and strip-searched and threatened with severe sentences for crimes they did not commit. And these protesters are not just risking everything to protect their treaty-protected sacred land. They are protecting everyone's water from a pipeline that will destroy the clean water in these territories.
This is what happens in the US when a wealthy corporation wants something. We discard our values, treaties, and even constitutional amendments to worship at the altar of the almighty dollar.
Thank you Mark Ruffalo for showing up and courageously speaking out.
