It's that time of year again... I may be a few days late in reviewing 2019, but I’ve decided to give myself an extra week to transition into 2020. Now feels like the perfect moment to dive into appreciating and honouring this last year.
As I look back, three major themes emerge…
S O U L G I F T S
I began the year staying at my friend Elizabeth’s place in Brights Grove, Ontario. After fun but challenging holidays, I had no plans and was open to a wide open horizon of possibilities...
I received an opportunity to sublet a cool writer’s space in Toronto, so I said yes and went for it. I spent a few weeks there in the dark magic of winter, drinking coffee, working out at the YMCA, exploring the city, and writing new songs. The seeds of my new album EUFLORIA grew, thanks to a keyboard and an awesome electric guitar I rented. :)
Even though the right people and places always seemed to flow into place, I didn’t have a home base and was living out of a backpack, which was becoming stressful. After the Toronto sublet, I wasn’t sure what to do, so I flowed with the Universe back to my hometown Sarnia area to figure it out. When I got back, I met up with my friend Sameena who suggested we go to a psychic fair that was flowing through town.
The psychic fair was fascinating and I remember saying to my friend, “We could do this!” I have been doing readings since 2011, and flowing spiritual guidance with friends is one of my greatest joys. I felt inspired to ask the organizers if I could join, and I got in! I did my first show, loved it, and then was invited to do a cross-Canada tour with them.
The tour was awesome. It was a great opportunity to strengthen my entrepreneurial muscles and Connect with inspiring people along the way. It was intense and challenging in many ways, but I learned a lot. It helped me crystallize my intuition and feel into the best ways to share my unique Soul Gifts. I even got to play a sweet concert in Edmonton with my friend Katie, and remember how much I LOVE playing my songs for people who love them!

After months of traveling without a home base, I started to get burned out. My increased sensitivity from being around mediums, healers, psychics combined with the constant energetic stimulation of new places, new people, etc challenged me to my core. I was really looking forward to traveling to Finland to perform at Natural High Festival, but had to say no because I couldn’t imagine being able to travel all the way there and show up with my own energy replenished enough to fully share my musical gifts. It was heartbreaking not to go, but I knew I had to choose self-care. I decided to focus my energy on nesting in a home base and thankfully, the perfect apartment flowed into place…
After the cross-Canada tour, I was excited to explore Beautiful British Columbia. It was so replenishing to receive the nourishing energy of the ocean, the forests, the mountains. I had an awesome time connecting with friends on Salt Spring and Hornby Island. While exploring, I was looking around for my home, and remembered that a few inspiring people had told me Powell River was a special place to live. I found an apartment online that looked ideal and ventured to Powell River for the first time to view it. It felt perfect, and flowed miraculously. I got it!
I moved in July 1st. After months of staying with friends, subletting places, hotel rooms, and dozens of AirBnB’s, it felt amazing to have a blank canvas to replenish my energy in. It was incredibly therapeutic to decorate the space!

Within days of moving to Powell River, I met a guy with whom a beautiful romantic Connection opened up. It was refreshing to date someone who was a therapist, which really helped with settling my anxiety and healing through layers of PTSD around intimacy. Looking back, I really appreciate the expansive spiritual conversations, his grounding presence, and the deepening of wisdom around healing trauma.
It makes me wonder about soul contracts, and why certain Beautiful Souls come together at different times. I can see from here that there these Alignments truly are with Great Purpose.
Speaking of Beautiful Souls, my Grandma passed away in the fall. She lived until age 83 so it felt like her time, however her passing still hit a very tender spot in my heart. She was a very loving, kind, forgiving, caring, sweet person. I’m glad I got to be there for her funeral even though it was challenging to be around PTSD triggers. I had a lot of tears flow, but really loved singing “Diamond” as her body was gifted to the Earth and I felt her Beautiful Soul flowing in the sparkling presence of Heaven.
A blessing of her passing is that I got to bring my cat Luna home with me on the flight back from the funeral. This cat is more than just a cat to me, she feels like my daughter, my mystical companion, my Soul Family. It’s been hard to be away from her for all the years I was traveling… But I’m thankful that now she’s back in my life, even though it was an intense journey. The flight was challenging, as were the 3 weeks when she went missing right after we arrived, but I’m happy to say that she is now happily settling in to our home.
There is a lot more I could share, as I’ve been meeting Beautiful Souls, receiving a lot of inspiration around my new album, and maturing in my healing work as a Transformational Coach. I’m sure the right moments to share will flow into place. For now I’m going to dive into the questions that I really enjoyed answering last year, so here we go… :)
What was your style in 2019?
Purple as per usual… Yet this year I also evolved to include more gold, black, and a few new white items.
What song(s) will always make you think of 2019?
“Legends” by Kerli and “Soulmate” by Lizzo
Did you fall in Love in 2019?
Good question. I feel I’m deepening in Love in so many ways… I would say that this year I flowed, rooted, and blossomed in Love. I’d love to infinitely ignite in Love in 2020. :)

Yes, my Grandma passed away around Thanksgiving.

Savouring Christmas Eve with my baby Luna on a Medicine journey. It was incredibly healing and fun. We danced around, ate delicious food, and cuddled in Divine Love Vibes!
Compared to this time last year, are you:
i. Richer or poorer? RICHER! Yay for healing my relationship with Money, crystallizing my Soul Gifts, and expanding my business with Divine Wealth Consciousness.
