It’s High-Time We Change That!

Beautiful Ladies,

I read some pretty scary statistics the other day.

Did you know that 1 in 4 women over 40 are depressed? Or that 75% of women suffer from chronic stress?

I also read that 75% of all women never experience the big ‘O’.

Whhaaaaaat!!? Coincidence? I think not.

I say it’s high-time we change that! Don’t you think?

Here’s how.

Because, the reality is, either you or a woman you know is…

Completely exhausted, in pain, or has an auto-immune disorder…

Or maybe you or a woman you know is having fertility problems… or period problems… or low libido… or worse.

I totally get it because I was there too.

And, these are all signposts that tell us we are OFF TRACK!

>> Let’s get back on our path, ladies.

Now is our time. And I’m pulling all the stops to help you get there with the upcoming Red Tent Revival. It’s happening May 16-20 and it is going to rock your world in soooooooo many ways.

Inside the Red Tent, you’ll join me and tens of thousands of women around the world as we revive our feminine nature, reclaim our wisdom, and return to our truth…

You’ll be safely guided and supported by a tribe of powerful female teachers who will answer all your questions and get your body moving and feeling amazing..

We brought back some of the favorite contributors from the last Revival PLUS some brand-new experts and dancers, many you’ve heard of before. (But trust me when I say you’ve NEVER heard the secrets they are sharing in the Red Tent).

>> Go here to claim your place at the Red Tent Revival.

A Season With My Sister

Life is full of experiences; the good, the bad and the ugly.  I have found in my own life that each season or experience is for a real purpose, to learn important life lessons that prepare me for and guide me to the next step in my process.

I was a stay-at-home mom for 15+ years and decided to go back to work, part-time for my sister who was a financial advisor for a leading investment firm in the industry.  My role was to do her marketing and to build relationships with her clients, which was right up my alley!  The marketing really tapped into my creativity, which hadn’t been tapped into since I took an art class is high school.  Having the opportunity to work with my sister, for about a year, is a time in my life that I will ALWAYS treasure!  We worked together all day, then a few evenings during the week we would get together to go for a run, go to Target or sometimes go to a ballgame together.  This is a picture of us together one night after work at a local, men’s softball game.


One night my sister had her house to herself and she invited me over after work to have a spa night, so I bought products for us and took them over.  This was one of the best times we ever had together! This is a picture of us that night with a mud mask on and it is blurry but you can see by the smiles on our faces just how much fun we were having.Image

My sister and I were polar opposites, but learned to embrace our differences and enjoy each other, or so I thought.  During the holidays in 2011, things became strained between us due to lifestyle choices being made in my immediate family.  I respected her opinion, but I still had to make the right decisions for me and my family and this did cause a huge strain on our relationship.  This was only magnified in the spring of 2012, after a year of me personally, struggling with serious depression that was debilitating at times, I was in a really bad place and not handling life very well; during which, she made the decision to completely shut me out of her life (my other sister came to the same conclusion also). This hit me like a ton of bricks and really backed me into a corner, which was good for me personally.  The reason I say that??  I always put SO much stock in what my sister’s thought of me, my life, my decisions…everything at every level.  I stayed in constant doubt because I didn’t trust myself and found that I really needed some time to work some things out, make some hard decisions and to learn to trust myself.  This ultimately lead me to get out of my nearly 20 year volatile, abusive and very unhealthy marriage and make a healthy, peaceful and loving home for my two youngest children that are still at home.  This also lead to me making a career change and getting into school to become a holistic health coach, which was my dream career but I was always afraid to pursue it. I reconciled with my parents, which I had been estranged from for about 5 years and we now have the most beautiful relationships, more beautiful than I could ever imagine.  My spiritual life has been transformed to a place that I am blown away with on a daily basis. I also took this opportunity to reflect internally and grow by leaps and bounds, I now trust myself, love myself and I like who I have become.  Who have I become?  I have become a woman that sees others through the eyes of love, who loves with such intensity, who is strong, compassionate, forgiving and patient.

The last half of 2012, I reached out to my sister on several occasions to try and reconcile and it just didn’t work, she just wasn’t ready.  I knew that this season in our relationship wasn’t only for me, but also part of her process too and out of that I told her that I was here, waiting for her when she was ready and that I loved her. Another year passed, another set of birthdays, mothers day, summer at the pool together, days of running and bike rides, another season of ball games, another year of spa nights.  This past Christmas Eve, I’m sleeping in my daughters room, my parents are in my bed and at 1:19 am, my mother comes through the door and with panic in her voice, she says, “Michelle get up, it’s your sister, she’s in the hospital and they don’t think she’s going to make it!”.  I jumped out of bed, so confused…hospital? Not going to make it? Has she been in an accident?  I looked at my phone and her husband had tried to call me and so I called him, he said “get to the hospital now”.  We took off to the hospital immediately and arrived around 1:45 am. My world was spinning, didn’t feel like this could be possible, surreal.  When we enter the family room, her husband told us that there was nothing that was pointing to my sister making it.  My mom, dad, sister and I went back to see her and when we pulled the curtain back, I was shocked by the way she appeared, she was intubated and an emergency pace maker had just been implanted and she was not conscious.  As I was getting ready to walk up to her bed and speak to her, her spirit reached out to me.  We were talking to each other, without talking.  We were exchanging thoughts and I was so caught up in my conversation with her that I’m not even sure what else was even going on.  I vaguely remember mom standing over her and telling her that she loved her and crying; mom’s cries, I can still hear them, my dad…the look in his eyes, I’ll never forget it, it breaks my heart every time it crosses my mind and my other sister and I spoke to her briefly.  We were only with my sister for a very brief time, when the life transport team from another hospital arrived to take her to their hospital and they asked us to go back to the family room while they assessed her.  As we were walking back to the family room, I was lead by something in my intuition to go somewhere so I could be alone, so strongly that I don’t remember even walking by the family…I was on a mission, the pull felt strong and hurried.  The waiting room was full, so I took off outside and stood by a tree right outside of the emergency room.  My sister’s spirit was there, waiting for me.  I begged her to come back, even demanded that she come back, but as soon as I had those demanding thoughts, she allowed me to feel a PORTION of the love, peace and FREEDOM that she was experiencing and I’ve never felt anything like it, not even close.  Immediately my thoughts to her were, “I don’t blame you, I wouldn’t stay here either” and just like that I felt her spirit leave.  When I walked back into the emergency waiting room, my other sister met me and placed her hands in mine and said, “she’s gone”, I said “dammit, I knew it!”.  My beautiful sister was 41 years old, from what I understand she ran 3 miles the day before and for some reason she became sepsis.

My reason for sharing this heartbreak with you is because I want you to see how my sister and I being estranged for the last two years of her life, not only worked for the betterment of me personally but was a way to prepare for our tragic loss.  Through the space created between us, I reconciled with my parents which enabled me to really be there for them during this horrific loss, my children and I were the only immediate family they had.  My spiritual life is at a place that my sister was able to communicate with me, which brought much healing to me personally and it was just an amazing experience, feeling just a portion of the love, peace and FREEDOM that she was now fully immersed in.  The spiritual transformation and experience that I had with my sister the night that she left us, gave me the insight and strength to be strong for my parents and to take care of them.  My sister’s death, which in our human mind seems untimely, but this was and is part of her process.  I would also like to say that the last two years of her life doesn’t at all define our relationship, it was a hiccup.  She loved us all so much while she was here and can and does love us beyond our wildest dreams now.  This is how I choose to remember my sister and it makes me smile!


Take my life experience and make it your encouragement, we’re all on a journey and honor where you are right now, whether it’s where you want to be or not.  There are days that I miss her so terribly that I feel like I am just going to die, but I sit in my place of grief and honor it with love and by listening and reflecting.  There are days that I am constantly reminded of sweet memories with my sister and I sit in my place of enjoyment and honor it with love and by listening and reflecting.  There are days that I want to call her and cut up and play with her by “punching her buttons” and so I sit in my place of longing and honor it with love and by listening and reflecting.  There are times that I can’t move and feel as if I can’t breathe and so I sit in my place of feeling lost and honor it with love and by listening and reflecting.

We are all on our own personal journey, so not only is it healthy for you to honor where you are on your journey, but it’s also healthy for you to honor where your loved ones are on their journey.  Our losses, heartbreaks, new jobs, new kids, EVERYTHING works together for our good!  Every experience is used to build stepping stones to get us to the next level; physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.  Remember this and KNOW this when you are in a difficult season of your life.


Thank you for reading and following!  Do you have a story about a season in your life and the lessons you learned and/or the growth that took place from your experience?  Are you in a difficult season now?  Do you need support around your difficult season? Comment below, I’d love to hear from you!
