Enlightenment Is Really Just Remembering

abundance you are the perfect mix

“Wow, I am so surprised to hear that you still struggle with this!” I had been sharing about my bouts with depression and this person commented that they were so surprised to hear that I still struggled after all this time. And honestly, it pissed me off for a while — when people talk down at you as if their stuff is all together and yours isn’t, it can be a bit triggering. (ahem, especially when from where you’re standing, it is so not the case) And then I touched… …Read More »

When Mother’s Day is a Mixed Bag

Posted 30 CommentsPosted in Intuitive Healing

Mother’s day is coming. I have a feeling I’m not the only one in the world who has mixed feelings about it. My mom died in 1996, after a stroke that left her alive but unable to care for herself for the better part of that year. I was 26 at the time and it was all on my shoulders. I was hardly in a position to deal with what was happening. To say our relationship was strained would be putting it mildly. Even as she was on her deathbed,… …Read More »

I am an artist. The end.

I am an artist. The end.

I am an artist (it’s taken me a while to own it). 45 years ago, I created my first art project. Ok, that’s not completely true because there was an earlier project known as the Poop Incident but for the purposes of this post, I’ll spare you the details. My official first art project was the Magnificent I Love You Mom Hair Plate. I’ve had all those years to ponder how my creative spark and heartfelt expression of love could ever have been misunderstood. I am an artist my art… …Read More »

Honoring what is (vs. pushing the plan)

honoring what is

I woke up this morning with my goals in mind Meditate, do my practices, eat yummy breakfast, take a walk, work a little in the garden and then write this week’s post (I was going to tell you about the wildest miracle manifesting story I have ever experienced firsthand), then see some awesome clients in the afternoon, and then dinner with my husband. Fun day, full day, packed day, busy day. No time for deviations – just stick to the plan day. And then I got the email. A very… …Read More »

Let Yourself off the Hook. Do Whatever You Want. Let Go.

Let Yourself off the Hook. Do Whatever You Want. Let Go. How to not lose it when things go wrong.

Or, what to do when you’re in a funk and you can’t make yourself do anything “productive” and you just wanna hang it all up and head for the coast but you’re scared that this will mean the end. I’m drinking coffee and reading Stephen King. The windows are open, I’m listening to crickets and the smell of smell of fresh cut grass fills the kitchen. The yumminess of this takes me back to a time when I had no responsibilities and life felt pretty easy. I take a beat… …Read More »

Same Crazy, Different Day

“If all your problems or perceived causes of suffering or unhappiness were miraculously removed for you today, but you had not become more present, more conscious, you would soon find yourself with a similar set of problems or causes of suffering, like a shadow that follows you wherever you go.” Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now Ugh. In all honesty, there are times when I feel like a nut. Some story has taken over my mind, and I am caught up again. I might cry, I might get depressed, I… …Read More »

Me Too, Wooboo.

Me too, wooboo.

Hello, sweet Friend, I am sending you some love and a bit of magic — the kind that is peaceful and sweet and knows just where it’s needed most. This has been a big week. Yikes, it feels like I’ve been saying that to you a lot lately. I thought about not writing to you about Me Too this week. I have this little issue with not wanting to be a downer in my letters to you. I get scared to ruin the party sometimes and I don’t want people fleeing… …Read More »

It’s OK If It Wasn’t Good. You Can Stop Pretending.

It’s OK If It Wasn’t Good. It’s OK to Stop Pretending.

My mother’s funeral. The thing I remember most was my near constant desire to lunge at the microphone WWF style and shout something very un-eulogy like. All of the people there, these “close, special friends,” most of whom I did not know at all inside this massive church, telling me how my mother was THEEEE MOST wonderful woman in the world. And then they’d gush about how she’d light up whenever she spoke about me. How proud she was! Loved me so much! Light of her world! I wanted to… …Read More »

On Loving Yourself Enough to Leave the Surface of Things

Posted 13 CommentsPosted in Intuitive Healing
you can trust your journey

Most of my life I was trained to believe that my basic goodness was tied to my outer appearance. It was my face, my hair, and the number on the scale that determined whether or not I was acceptable, worthy. The clothes I wore held the power to determine if I belonged or would be shunned. Later, my earthly credentials began to factor in–the bigger my degree, the better my standing. Later still, it was my car, my house, my bank account that guaranteed my security. I was trapped on… …Read More »

The past is like a too-tight brassiere.

Posted Posted in The Journey

Some of us cater our energy to the stories we carry from the past. We spend our time — right now — thinking about the past. And in one way or another, it makes us feel like crap. Maybe we’re longing for how it used to be. Today’s not great, yesterday was better. Or maybe there’s a horrible ugly which changed the trajectory of our lives forever, and we’re still reeling. Or maybe we think we’re all good with the past, we’re just hoping to ward off future evil based on… …Read More »

Sell crazy someplace else, we’re all stocked up here…

sell crazy someplace else

I got an email a while back from a relative and then I had a hot and prickly stomachache for two days. This person, my uncle, had subscribed to my newsletter list and although I kind-of-sort-of noticed the name, I didn’t really put two and two together; it’s not like his name is Zebulon or anything. After his receiving a few of the weekly love notes I send to The Love Posse, he sent this scathing reply: Shame on you Robin, you can’t even bother to write a personal note… …Read More »

Why We’re Afraid to Shine and How We Can (with video)

Posted Posted in Lightworker Love, The Journey
why we

Hello sweet Friend! Just because you were wounded doesn’t mean you can’t shine. It is completely possible for you to shine brightly, confidently, even if you were repeatedly told that you weren’t worth it or made to feel bad for being yourself. Today’s message is about shining brightly and why that’s so darn scary. Many of us were hurt for being ourselves… there we were, shining our light so very brightly, confidently, and right then we were clobbered for revealing our true selves. We were teased, or slapped, or shamed,… …Read More »

The Crack Where the Light Gets In

The Crack Where The Light Gets In by Robin Hallett

I’ve been spending a lot of time in quiet. Trying to get my bearings, waiting for the ride to slow. I’m reminding myself to breathe, to soften. Giving myself the little extras. I keep asking: Why am I so upset? Part of me is surprised to be feeling this way. As if it’s a problem, an inconvenience. As if some part of me is difficult because I am functioning at less than 100%. And yet, here I am. I can feel there’s this invisible thing I’m trying to find. So… …Read More »

Broken, but better.

Broken, but better. Healing from old emotional wounding by robin hallett

As a kid, I often felt helpless and unsafe around the people who were supposed to love me the most. I was at the mercy of their fluctuating moods and addictions. The experience of not being cherished or wanted was ongoing, relentless. My personal work today is sitting with how that wounding gets tweaked now as I meet people who resemble the cast of characters from childhood–the ones who seem unsafe, wildly fluctuating in their moods, addicted, and unable to cherish or respect me. On each of our paths, situations… …Read More »

The Horrible Uglies We Never Tell

the horrible uglies we never tell by robin hallett

I always say I am not much of a journaler… but I have 20 years of journals here. Sometimes I tell #1husband, should I croak unexpectedly, forget making me look presentable…go find those journals and burn them! More and more, I realize there are stories I am carrying that need to go. These are stories which aren’t serving me… but they’re inside me still. These little light nibblers get in the way, sucking up the juju available. In the way. Holding me back. Informing my NOW with stories about can’t,… …Read More »
