Yesterday my heart was ravaged. I thought I’d risen above and detached myself from all of the hate and vitriol that people hurl around regarding transgender kids and their parents. I try to stay away from this social “discussion,” as I’ve come to realize that most people don’t really understand this issue. Deep down they are just afraid, and probably don’t truly mean what they say. It’s hard sometimes to keep this kind of perspective but I try to, for my own peace of mind.

I’ve not always been a great communicator. I’ve had my share of angry outbursts, the…


I’ve been thinking a lot about the topic of spiritual bypassing. The term and idea have not only come up in my personal spiritual journey, but also as a topic in our current political environment, where we see a backlash against what appears to be demands for positivity to the point where any criticism of current leadership is to be repressed as negative. Or as I’ve heard it phrased, a focus on “love and light, love and light.” One might be tempted to think, what’s wrong with focusing on the positives in life? If we are talking about true spiritual…

As we collectively wake up from the nightmare that’s been 2020, what will we find? We’ve all put our lives on hold somewhat, patiently or not so patiently waiting for the world to return to normal. But will it? I think a lot of people expect some return to normalcy following widespread vaccine distribution, but I think this experience has changed us forever. As I’ve been preparing for 2021, I’ve been contemplating how these changes will affect my marketing consulting business. Here are the marketing and business trends I think we’ll start to see ramp up this year:

2021 Vision Board

Following up on last week’s announcement here, of my plans to reposition JupiterSix as an umbrella company over two separate entities, Higher Frequency Marketing and Higher Frequency Life, I’d like to share what living from a higher frequency means to me.

Let me first address what it doesn’t mean. The main goals are not focused on feeling good or living an outwardly prosperous life. It doesn’t mean living from a place of artificial positivity, ignoring or repressing what does not fit into our chosen narrative. It does not mean becoming passive or hiding from the dark or negative energies of…


Keeping with the theme of last week’s post about beginning before you begin, I’ve been contemplating repositioning my business as a transitional step into my future career. As I have been drawn more and more toward creative and spiritual pursuits this year, it has been harder to maintain interest in the kinds of projects I’ve typically attracted based on my experience. There are many people whose day jobs fuel other interests or are a means of survival, and I’ve certainly been there, and I am grateful to maintain that status if necessary. …


At the end of a three-day meditation retreat where I had been contemplating my purpose and next steps, Fr. Daniel Renaud, OMI, began his Sunday liturgy with an idea that struck me: “You are beginning before you begin.” This is what I took away from his talk: whether we realize it or not, each action we take has a beginning before the beginning — a seeding or incubation period. Moments lead to other moments, which in turn lead to other moments. As I’m nearing the end of this year’s self-imposed writing challenge (of which this post is part), I realize…


For the last few weeks, I’ve been practicing radical self-acceptance and unconditional self-love, which has really opened my heart in a period of challenging integration. While I haven’t read Tara Brach’s book, Radical Compassion, I spent a year or two listening religiously to her podcasts where this topic was frequently discussed. And yet it has taken until now to fully practice this idea as it relates to myself. Even as I’ve been learning to be more compassionate, radical self-acceptance and unconditional self-love are in a league of their own. Incredibly difficult and yet amazingly rewarding.

While embracing my strengths of…

As I’ve started to look back on this year, while it’s been challenging in so many ways, I see that I have so many more things to be thankful for. I say this humbly, knowing that I am deeply privileged in so many ways that I take for granted each and every day. The gifts that flow in and out of my life each year are unique in their blessings. Some I’ve perhaps clung onto too much; others I’ve simply ignored. Today and every day forward, I’d like to promise myself to live more fully aware of all these blessings…

It used to really bug me when I’d see acquaintances share opinions about how people needed to stop blaming their parents and take responsibility for their lives. It wasn’t that I thought that people shouldn’t take responsibility for their lives, I just found the curt rebuke ill-informed. Your early life shapes so much about how you will respond to people and situations in your later life. If you’ve had a chaotic and traumatic upbringing, it can take years to work through this trauma — and that’s IF you have the courage to confront it. Most people instead live in a…

These past few weeks have been a time of forced withdrawal after a longer period of intense activity that was both self-imposed and accidental. I look back at my posts from the last year and see the ebbs and flows of my journey, a clear coming to terms with the need to balance action and rest. I have always thought of myself as an overachiever, in pretty much everything I do. A striver for perfection. Sometimes I’m not even sure what I’m perfecting, I’ve just convinced myself that I need to relentlessly keep at it. My brain is wily in…
