A Message through the Medicine

by Jaclyn on May 2, 2018

The Medicine Man leaned over and whispered into my forehead.

“I want you to take yourself home now. Find a shrub or tree in your yard. Tell me when you get there.”

“I’m there,” I said.

“Good. Ask the tree this question: What does it take to be truly happy?”

I paused. I couldn’t believe the clarity with which I was seeing this tree. I’d just moved into a new house and wasn’t yet familiar with the living things sharing the property with me. But here it was—this bending tree, perfectly in sight in front of me. Every detail, every crease, every green and flittering leaf.

“Have you asked the tree?” the Medicine Man asked me. “Ask out loud.”

I asked the tree, “What does it take to be truly happy?”

I was embarrassed to tell the Medicine Man what the tree then said to me. After all the profundity and intensity of the night, the message I was now receiving felt so simple and silly. I giggled.

“Yes?” the Medicine Man asked again, “What does it take to be truly happy?”

“Be easy in the breezy,” I said.

Be easy in the breezy, the tree told me.

My Article On Self-Forgiveness

by Jaclyn on March 2, 2018

I’m happy to share an article I wrote for Tiny Buddha on Self-Forgiveness. It involves a very personal story about my father…

I hope the story helps guide you to release any guilt of your own you may be carrying.

A Personal Transformation

by Jaclyn on January 27, 2018

Plant Medicine, Ayahuasca Las Vegas Happy Birthday to me

I normally don’t celebrate my birthday, but this year I’m in awe.

I went through a hell New Year’s Eve. All silver linings and rose-colored veils were removed to reveal the reality of my life without my eternal optimism. I saw that parts of my life were a prison I’d built for myself and knowingly stayed inside. I was made to stew in that realization until all corners of my psyche were faced. Even my intuition was challenged. Only then was I shown how to set myself free.

In hindsight, the night was gift—but while I was writhing on the ground screaming “Mercy!” in terror of the stifling prison-life I’d created, I remember thinking “I would rather have someone cut off my actual, physical limbs than continue the psychological torture I’m undergoing.” That’s the kind of gift it was.

In the days that followed, I realized it hadn’t been in vain. I wouldn’t—couldn’t—scrunch myself back into the box that was once my life. I’d been permanently expanded. Tectonic plates had shifted at my core. And after recoiling from the aftershocks, I surveyed the lands and set out to explore the new continent that had formed inside me.

What a way to start January. Another rotation around that sun. Though I’m tired of rotating around all the various suns in my life. I’m going to be a roving planet for a while. My center will be everywhere.

At the end of a chapter in my novel, a girl trades her soul with the soul belonging to a gigantic, snowy mountain. Maybe that’s what’s happening inside me. Mountains have always been my allies. How do mountains grow? All that shifting of the Earth’s crust and mantle. Dense rocks crumbling. There are times when a mountain remains the same height for dozens of millions of years—then, suddenly, desire shifts and lava flows and the mountain surges upward in rapid, unstoppable growth.

Perhaps all suns ultimately revolve around a cosmic mountain.

Last year, the darkness spoke: “Emptiness loves you too, dear girl.” This year, fullness is my love affair. I spent the first two weeks trotting around the Pacific North West in every forest I could find. I don’t know what I’m doing in this picture. Playing with leaves, I suppose. If it looks like I’m birthing something, I was probably becoming my own genie. I’d just found the torn dress in an antique shop moments before I ran into the woods. My beloved sister, Keri, snapped this shot of me wearing the magical headpiece she created.

I think I’ll move through this next year feeling the way I look in this picture—a little like a wild animal. A little bit naked. A little bit like a Queen. Amethyst and Antler protecting me. On the verge of a hard-earned ecstasy.

Despite all the uncertainties, and with much identity left to shed, I’ve never been so at peace, in love, and happy to be alive. I’ve never felt so graceful in spirit yet so at home with my feet on the Earth. I couldn’t have dreamed a more perfect life. It never stops humbling me. The friendships with my song-sisters, the snowy mountains, the trees, the way he looks into my eyes, love-filled galaxies…

I couldn’t be more excited to share this podcast episode with you. The lovely Lian Brook-Tyler of Primal Happiness invited me for a talk about intuition. Lian, along with Jonathan Wilkinson, created Primal Happiness to uncover “the fundamentals required to reclaim our primal state of happiness and our innate ability to thrive.”

As Lian states in her introduction to the episode featuring yours truly:

In this show we’re talking about the juicy topic of intuition. What it is, how we can listen to it, how we can get more of it showing up in our lives, and what we can do with what it tells us! In other words, how we can live our most congruent, aligned, and heart-centred lives.

What you’ll learn from this episode:

  • We all have intuition and it’s like a muscle that the more we use it, the stronger it gets. Find ways to get space for intuition into your life.

  • It’s a choice: Check out or check in. Nearly everything in life is a choice and we have such creative power when we’re aware of the choices we’re making.

  • Sometimes our intuition tells us something we really don’t like and are scared to act upon. It’s helpful to remember that that tension is what something new can be created from.

It was a true honor to be on this show (and it was tons of fun as well!) I hope you enjoy the episode.
