As I evolve, truth evolves. As truth evolves, I evolve.
Many years ago when I was Muslim I spent my days praying at least five times a day. While the daily prayer requirement was five I often felt inspired to do more.
Let's talk about boundaries
The No. 1 thing that sensitive souls need to create right now in their life to thrive is healthy boundaries.
Healthy relationships with ourselves and with others are built on the shoulders of the reparenting, re-partnering, and re-friending nature of inner child work.
Are you sure you are adulting? You might be surprised...
I would say many of us are not at times. Unaware, we sometimes walk around as children interacting with the world pretending to be adults. Like a game of dress up. Except, as kids we know we are playing a game and as adults, we’ve forgotten.
Highly sensitive souls, also known as empaths, can accidentally confuse, disconnect from, tune out, and distrust our intuitive knowing when we try to “fit in.”

"If you want to ask him a practice question, now is the time," urged the woman next to me. She had been part of the community for years. I clearly looked hesitant. "Don't be shy, this is your chance." Ok Universe. I hear you. I said to myself. It's always like that. I'm stubborn, and the Universe keeps nudging me along until it's blatantly apparent and then I give up on digging in my heels and walk.
