Bubbling Over with Body Positive Joy!

When Yi asked me to climb on her conference room table, I didn’t hesitate.  

This past week, Yi Zhou, founder of Global Intuition, a fast-rising international fashion brand, invited me to her headquarters in Beverly Hills for a body positive photo shoot.  

Astrology’s Opposite Signs & Balancing with the Fall Equinox

Special guest psychic and shaman Shea Herlihy-Abba and host Kristin West chat about how having opposite signs in the chart doesn’t automatically mean there’s a conflict.  They discuss the Autumn Equinox, how to balance energies that might not be serving you and how to embrace the changing of the seasons.  Sometimes sassy, sometimes deep thisContinue reading “Astrology’s Opposite Signs & Balancing with the Fall Equinox”

Got #FOMO? Get Curious Instead…

Sometimes, we take too many cues from other people.  They have something, so we should have something.  They’re pursuing something, so we should pursue it too.  Our #fomo overrides our common sense, and even worse, our #fomo leads us to look to others for what we truly want and so our lives our built onContinue reading “Got #FOMO? Get Curious Instead…”

Pivoting to Autumn

It’s not fall yet, despite what Starbucks may have you believe.  The autumnal equinox is a little over a week away, on September 23.  Yet, you may already be feeling fall settling in.  I walk almost every day and I see the leaves changing and falling. Sometimes in life we don’t make the sharp turnsContinue reading “Pivoting to Autumn”

Here. Now. Today.

Here. Now. Today. It’s my new mantra. Too often, we are not in the present.  We’re mining the middens of the past trying to explain away our bad feelings or bad behavior or we’re floating into painful projections of a future more akin to a post-apocalyptic world. Lately, I’ve been dealing with my anxiety.  PartContinue reading “Here. Now. Today.”

The Inner Ghost Town

Today, I took a trek to Mentryville, a ghost town in the Santa Clarita area. I was doing a preliminary scout for a project awaiting funding.  As I walked around the abandoned buildings, it was apparent to me that inside of us, we often carry around an inner ghost town.  What outdated structures (beliefs, habits)Continue reading “The Inner Ghost Town”

A Little Glue, A Little Paper, A Lot of Insight

At certain pivot points of my life in acting, I’ve needed a hobby where I didn’t have to perform.  For me, decoupage has been a place to exercise my right brain, create and decompress without feeling the need to “do it right” or impress.  I’ve done a few good pieces over the years, including aContinue reading “A Little Glue, A Little Paper, A Lot of Insight”

Your Eclipse Tarot-Scope

Eclipses give us a special window into what’s ahead for the next six months.  Today’s partial lunar eclipse happens during the Capricorn full moon, and is especially connected with our careers, our karmic burden, fathers and fatherhood and how we build ourselves to be the best version of ourselves.  The moon itself is ruled byContinue reading “Your Eclipse Tarot-Scope”

Giving Myself Time

It seems like there’s never enough time.  We pack our schedules full, keep busy, keep moving and still, there’s an emptiness.  Time just flies, and we have so little time for ourselves. This past week, I resolved to give myself some time back.  I resolved not to just wake up and do, do, do.  IContinue reading “Giving Myself Time”
