I’ve been blogging for over 3 years on Medium. My only other experience is my lifetime of journal writings, which you can find on my publication Up Close and Personal.
I’m the owner of The Virago, a women’s publication I started in June, 2020 with a group of fantastic women writers with different perspectives. This pub is growing weekly with over 2K follower (as of this writing) and over 100 writers. I write a weekly newsletter for The Virago and if you’re interested in following, take a look here.
When I read tarot for others, I receive my “hits” from my intuition. Usually I “hear” words, phrases or even song lyrics, that will tune me in to a message I clarify with my client. That is my Clairaudience. Other times I will just “know” something. This is a little harder to explain. The information comes across my mind, and I know what’s not being said as I talk with someone. This type of ability is Claircognizance. There are a lot of other abilities, and people have one they favor, psychics too, even if they have abilities in more than…
I’ve been thinking about it for a long time, but I haven’t pulled the trigger yet. However, this morning, I did my morning yoga and started thinking about my writing and my life and where I wanted to go with my creativity.
I have three publications; the first pub is The Virago, which I’m thrilled about. The Virago is a woman’s pub and it has breathed into a life of it’s own, becoming a successful adventure. I have my other pub, Up Close and Personal, which is my personal pub for my blogs that don’t fit elsewhere. The last one…
Hello, Virago Women!
We have a few articles this week which focus on women’s emotions: how we are considered “emotional creatures,” yet invalidating or dismissing our emotions as hysterics.
This week also shows many facets of relationships, from lover, to friend, to parent. Some relationships are confusing, others are celebrated. And then there’s everything in-between.
I recommend reading these interesting perspectives from our writers, and hear their stories about these very human topics.
On another note, we have another group of in-coming writers. I have to say that the article drafts I’ve seen so far are incredibly talented pieces of…
I was talking with my friend yesterday about this married man she was seeing. The conversation lately has been painful and difficult because she refuses to see that this is an unhealthy relationship.
My friend is a woman who falls quickly for a man before she knows if that man is compatible with her. She doesn’t look for red flags when she dates. She asks for friend’s opinions about men but never follows the advice. …
Happy Friday, Virago Women!
April is here and that means showers and flowers in the Northern Hemisphere. It’s time for spring cleaning: our closets and mental state of mind.
The best way to clean out our life is to do away with whatever does not serve us. Minimize. Scale down. Material or otherwise, having unwanted extras in our life only makes for less room to create what we really want. Look into yourselves and see what it is you can do without.
After you’ve taken out the material and mental garbage (literally) look at what you’d really like to invite…
I’ve been thinking recently about moving to the country, away from all the noise pollution in the suburbs. I am sensitive to unnatural noises. When I’m feeling more vulnerable than usual, like today, any noise makes me feel like I’m going crazy.
When my husband and I were looking at buying a home, my most crucial stipulation was it couldn’t be on a busy road. I don’t want to hear traffic when I step into my yard.
We found a lovely home in a neighborhood that doesn’t have any thru traffic. The traffic noise is so far away; it can…
It’s a Tuesday, and I have the day off. I’m three days in to my week, and I’m finding myself on the brink of snapping. Or collapsing. Take your pick.
I figured this out when I took my dog for a walk this morning. It was right after I’d had another frustrating moment with my husband before he left for the morning.
For the past 3–4 weeks, I haven’t had any quality time with my spouse. He works full time, and recently started a handyman side gig. He also coaches on the local high school track team. He has been…
Finding someone to love is tough. Sometimes you have to go to great lengths to be in a relationship. All that working-on-yourself takes time, and you may be too old to find anyone by the time you’ve become an emotionally healthy person.
Here are 13 easy steps to finding a man, whether he is suitable for you or not:
Imagine being locked up in a cell with a concrete floor and a door that’s barred. You have a thin blanket, a bit of water, and some morsels to eat. You are given the bare necessities to live, but you aren’t given what really makes you thrive; the love of a family and a sense of safety and peace.
Day in and day out, your time is spent sitting there, not knowing what will happen to you. You become despondent. You cry out for help. When someone passes your cell, you yell out to them, “Please, let me out of…
