About

Greetings, and thank you for taking a moment to read my blog.   My name is Heather, and I am blessed with a wonderful life, just as you are because we are all alive on this beautiful planet right this very moment.  I studied and obtained a degree in Art History with a minor in History, both of which I never used for their intended purpose.  I made a choice, and had the option, to be a stay at home mom and raise two stepsons and my greatest blessing, my son.  All are grown and out into the world.  I was married for almost 20 years to their father, whom we unexpectedly lost in 2004.  It was very tragic on a number of levels, which brought me to the point of wanting to share my voice with other women in particular.  I am also a brain tumor survivor, having been diagnosed in 2002 with a meningioma.  I have been tumor free since May 13, 2002 when I underwent a craniotomy, and life is good!  As you see, my story, while different from each of you who read this blog, is not without a little rain, which is something we must all be able to shoulder and most importantly hold our voice and place in the universe while doing so.  Admittedly, I was not always good at these things and I am still very much a work in progress, recently adding the credential of  Certified Instructor at Journal to the Self® and being able to share this gift with The Grief Project at its Sacred Journey Gathering in Minneapolis.  I have also studied crystal healing under the guidance of John Corsa.  Most recently, I obtained my 200-hour RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher) and am looking forward to seeing where that path might lead me.  I am fortunate to be surrounded by wonderful relationships, a strong spiritual practice, as well as a great dog, and if all else fails there is always chocolate and wine!  Come along for the journey, and perhaps you will find some inspiration to claim your own voice.  ~Namaste

There is no passion to be found in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.~Nelson Mandela

    Hello Wildflower Women, very nice to meet you on your/my journey to wholeness. Every journey is uniquely different, and yet the same. I read your voice and often think it is my own. We each find our own path, or perhaps I should say the path is presented to us, and we have no choice but to walk along it. And in the end enlightenment doesn’t care how we get there.
    Thank you so much for visiting and for following our blog. I hope you enjoy the stories of our journey, both inner and outer.
    Namaste
    Alison

    • Thank you Alison for your kind words. I am looking forward to following your journey. I think it such a courageous act to shed yourselves of all your material goods and travel the world, these acts of courage are the very things that feed are souls.

  17. Such a nice “about,” even with the trials that you’ve face in your life. Thank you for sharing and for your kind like at my place. My youngest guy is in grade 12 and will be leaving for college in the fall.

    There is no higher calling than to be a loving parent. I’d say that you put your degree to the best possible use.

    I believe a great dog is essential for navigating the rapids in the river of life. A pure and uncomplicated love can be had with a dog.
    Sure, humans are most important to us, and rank above other species on our most important love lists. These relationships are always complex, and clouded by individual feelings, random thoughts our brain spits out into our consciousness.
    Dogs bring no such baggage. If you love them, they will love you back.
    No words, no agenda, no apologies, no promises.
    Just a constant, non-judgemental, unconditional love.
    The kind of love we would all wish to give, and receive!

    Seek peace,

    Paz

  27. Dear friend, I have nominated you for a Mystery Blogger Award. Here is the link https://koolkosherkitchen.wordpress.com/2016/12/06/three-awards-and-a-thai-style-chicken/. You are not in any way obligated to accept, and I fully understand that not everyone has the time and inclination to participate in these self-and-others-promoting exercises. Therefore, I will truly appreciate if you accept the nomination, as I sincerely think you deserve it, but I won’t get offended if you don’t. Nominating each one of you is my way of giving credit to some exceptional bloggers and perhaps attracting attention to your work.
