The fires, my home in Sonoma + Mother Earth is calling us

Hi love,

What a wild ride it has been this past month.

I am here and I am raw.

The fires that happened in my beloved Sonoma County have caused a tremendous amount of loss and devastation. Thousands of people have lost their homes. 41 precious souls have lost their lives.  

This loss has touched me personally – my husband and I own a home in Glen Ellen – and live there part-time. When our little town was evacuated last week with fires blazing around our home, we had no idea what would happen – to our home, to our neighbors, to our town.

We are one of the lucky ones and our home has been spared. The fire literally stopped right across the street from our home.

In this midst of the chaos I was leading a closing circle with 8 women on a powerful retreat further north near the Pacific Ocean.

Yes – in the midst of these crazy fires, I held a retreat.

These fires ignited me from within and have catalyzed something in me that I cannot yet put into words.

It’s incredible how moments like this can call us into deep question and realignment about what matters most.

What I know is that Mother Earth is calling us in a way she never has before.   

Devastation after devastation – from hurricanes to earthquakes to volcanoes erupting to mudslides to the shootings in Vegas to these fires – every element (earth, air, water and now fire) activated.

Mother Earth is shaking us awake – Will you help each other now? Will you love each now? Will you stop this bullshit of fear and separation and come out of your story to rewrite a new one for the collective??

She is roaring! Like any Mama Bear who is pissed at her cubs when they put them themselves in danger.

She will have it no longer.

She’s igniting us all.

We have been called together at this profound time in herstory (aka history) to recalibrate, remember and reignite ALL of who we are.

We, as women, are rising up – and we’re going to change this world with truth, compassion, vulnerability and love (the “me too” on social media is a perfect example of this rising)!

The easy choice is to check out.  

But we’re not here to do the easy, sister!

We’re here to be tender, raw, emotional, angry, sad, hopeful, confused, anything. That’s part of the work that we’re collectively called to do.

We’re here to activate the light and love within us and in the world – now more than ever.

This is why we were born! This is why we’re here. To help move this world from darkness to light.

AN INVITATION:

What I know to be true right now is that this is an all-hands-on-deck moment in our world right now and each of us has a part to play.

If you’re a woman with a stirring in her soul and an ache in her heart to DO something about bringing more love into this world, we need you.

It doesn’t matter if you have a corporate job, a tech job, a healing business, a yoga practice…

It doesn’t matter if you’re a mother, an artist, a creative, a badass boss woman…

WE SIMPLY NEED YOU!

We need you to awaken to your power, your voice, your self-expression and do your part to making this world a better place.

If you are ready to get to work bringing your love and light into the world AND you want my support doing it, I’m opening TWO SPOTS for private coaching with me.  

If you know you’re here for something…

​​​​​​​If you feel stuck or called to a different way of living…

​​​​​​​If you are ready to stop playing small and start shining your light…
​​​​​​​
You can apply to work with me for a 6-month intimate 1:1 journey here.

​​​​​​​When we work together privately, I will play many roles in your life – as your coach, your mentor, your teacher, your healer, and your friend. But, mostly, I’m here to show you how to be those things for yourself.
​​​​​​​
My job is to help you listen to your own inner guidance and have the confidence and courage to follow your heart. I would love to support you on this amazing, beautiful, winding road called Life.

​​​​​​​If you want to explore working with me in this intimate way, simply apply here. There is no obligation to work with me by filling out this application. It’s simply your way to let me know you’re interested. If I feel like I can support you, we’ll be in touch to set up a time to connect on the phone and discuss.

I look forward to supporting you to awaken your light!

With fierce love!
Julie

P.S. If you feel called to contribute to the fire relief efforts in a monetary way, I have set up a go fund me campaign to support our local community to rebuild and help those who weren’t as lucky as we have been.
