A Riddle Rolling Off My Tongue

A Riddle Rolling Off My Tongue


Be there for you to listen to whatever you have to say?
Give you their undivided attention whenever you ask for it?
Witness you with no judgment?
Be able to let you completely fall apart and hold you together in one piece?
Knows you better than your best friend or lover?
Accepts you completely and trusts you completely?
Lets you spill your guts, cry your eyes out, and rip and tear illusions?


She’s held together by a thin wire. She’s made of earth. She’s tough on the outside and yet fragile and delicate when exposed to the elements. Her insides absorb huge waves of emotions, absorb power punches and blows of hot air.

She’s known you since you started to talk.

And when you turn your back on her and abandon her for long stretches, she always greets you with open arms.
She’s your greatest teacher of self-compassion.

She a crystal clear mirror of the sacred and profane.

She’s so close. She’s practically at your finger tips.
She’s so close. She can almost read your mind, and anticipates what you’re about to say.
She’s so close.  She joins you traveling continents, flying up in the air, or carried on water.
She’s so close. She sits on your lap, snuggles up to your pillow, lays at your altar.

And no matter how much you feel you’re falling apart, she holds you together firmly by a thin wire.


Who stays with you through your life unconditionally loving you?

It’s your writing journal. 

Writing practice has helped me calm the roar in my head. It’s helped me capture the monsters I’ve adopted and put them down on paper. Each written line wipes out fear. Each paragraph strangles doubt. Finally, the monsters become still and quiet. Then the compassionate voices in my head get stronger and clearer.  Courage and confidence erupt from my head and flow out through my hand and land onto the page.

Often what’s under our fear is brilliance waiting to be seen and heard

shedding skin

About Shedding Skin Journal Writing Practice:

The snake rubs up against something sharp to begin the shedding process. The snake will die of suffocation if it doesn’t shed it’s complete skin-even the covering of it’s eyes. Shedding Skin writing practice includes witness. Your writing will scratch off dead skin and old beliefs that don’t serve you any longer. Sharing your writing with witness sheds your skin. Being heard-strips off layers and exposes your vulnerability. Even though it might feel like healthy skin coming off while reading your writing, it’s enlivening and necessary for growth of your soul.

Shedding Skin writing practices will help YOU-

  1. unleash your tongue,
  2. trust your inner guide-your intuition,
  3. quiet your inner voices and hear your heart whisper.

Move and WriteImagine if someone could hear you-like really hear what you’re saying-not just your word content-but hear your soul speak? And who could see you, not just look at you, but see into your soul that are perfect? At some point along my path-I realized I had to become what I desired. To be the therapist I desired. To be the friend I always wanted. The be the partner I wanted. I am the Writer’s Coach I always wanted. I am most content when my words mirror what I want to express.

When my words line up with what my soul wants to express, I vibrate. Literally I feel an inner hum inside me. Maybe it’s a human purr. I actually salivate and my mouth drools!
It is my soul purpose to connect-intimately inside and outside, verbally and non-verbally, align completely my mind,body, and spirit. No compromise. Shedding Skin Journal Writing Practice is writing from the inside-out. It’s following your heart and writing with your mind simultaneously. It’s listening to your Heart Whisper and hearing your Soul Roar.
