There’s no such thing as “too much” Independence

There's no such thing as "too much" independence. Independence or self-sufficiency isn't the culprit but the unwillingness to receive. The Empress archetype is self-sufficient, no doubt, and yet she is the epitome of receptivity. We can be in our power and also feminine - yielding, open, receiving of all that life is offering us.

Arrival

A snapshot. A stop sign. A flashback. Our life unfolds in these fleeting moments. Clues of who we are becoming, stuck between the window panes hidden between sighs lying under the ashes.   I sit on top a flashing hotel sign. I've been waiting for someone to pick me up all this time.   I …
