“A healer’s power stems not from any special ability, but from maintaining the courage and awareness to embody and express the universal healing power that every human being naturally possesses.”
― Eric Micha’el Leventha
I know that inside each of us is the power and ability to help alleviate the weight we carry.
I have been there, in the darkest times of my own shadow, barely able to recognize myself, letting people who truly loved me slip through the cracks. I also knew my light could help me. I could feel it still there before I decided to choose to live in lower energy frequencies. I remember the exact moment that I was full of source energy and that same energy which created every single conscious and unconscious element around me, was available to me. I stepped back into the light. I am not going to tell you it was hard because it wasn’t.
The hardest part was living in the despair and fear of constantly giving my power away. Thinking someone else was ever in charge of my emotions was constantly keeping me in a creepy limbo state of mind, wrought with terrible things continuing to happen. I had given up long ago as a young child looking outside of myself for comfort from others. I could fall asleep soundly by simply releasing all my cares and reassuring myself, ” It’s going to be OK.” And you know what!? IT ALWAYS WAS.
I am not here to try and fix you but I am here to guide you along the way to helping feel happier in your skin. I believe our DNA is coded with light to heal and sometimes having someone understanding of these frequencies in your time of need, is the most healing feeling of all. I am here to help you, as you heal, I heal, and Humanity Heals. It starts with you!
This is why I offer in home personal Reiki and Frequency sessions. Each session includes a 60 minutes of Reiki therapy with sound frequency healing, a sacred space clearing, intuitive tarot guidance, buffalo drumming, special meditation and affirmation, and crystal and plant companions for you to keep.
Utilizing intensive sound healing along with the aid of specific crystals for your intention to clear your home, I clear each space with Sacred herbs, Agua Florida, Sage, and Offerings. Before I arrive at your home we will go over in detail what you know about your home and the current state of affairs. I have assisted in many clearings and blessings and regularly clear my home as well.
Drum therapy is an ancient approach that uses rhythm to promote healing and self-expression. From the shamans of Mongolia to the Minianka healers of West Africa, therapeutic rhythm techniques have been used for thousands of years to create and maintain physical, mental, and spiritual health. I bring my personal ancestry from France and the Muguzawa tribe of Africa.
Each session begins with the intention of being an open channel for the highest healing you need at the time. It is best to allot a total time of 90 minutes for the entirety of your session. Send me an email and lets discuss your availability.
If all we have is hope and hope is all we need.

I used to live in a house that was literally something out of a book, but for real, you can buy the book here and the passive solar house he speaks of, is the one he built in the high hills of the Cohutta Wilderness. This place was my home for a short time and has been a major impact on how I have continued to live here in Colorado. Sit back and grab some tea because I used to live in a fairy tale.
This was my view each morning when I woke up for about 16 months. There is so much I could say about this house and how it changed me but honestly, I feel like I really came into myself. So let’s start off with the magic beginnings of how this little slice of off grid heaven came into my path.
I was working at a small town restaurant and living at the foot of the Cherokee National Forest when a friend sent me a message asking if I was looking for some where to move. I never spoke to him about it, but I did put out into the universe that the right house would find us! Sure enough his exact words were, “I think fate wants you to live in North Georgia.” We made plans to come down and see the place which was a 40 minute drive south. That week we were traveling 12 hours north to attend The Electric Forest Festival in Michigan. Little did I know this was our surprise engagement trip as well!
We decided we wanted to check the place out BEFORE driving to Michigan. We made the quick drive to check the place out briefly and think on it while we were on vacation. We drove back into the Georgia wilderness, 15 minutes from the nearest store, down long windy roads. Roads that were paved over the Trail of Tears. I saw the sign for the Red Clay National Park and knew we had to be close.
We pulled up to the top of a hill and there we saw it.
What looked like an upside down boat was a huge hand built work of sacred art. We loved it and we told them we would move in as soon as we were back from Michigan. Now it off to celebrate. Remember, I had no idea I was getting engaged but I knew something was up! I had a feeling the week could not get any better and I already knew it was going to be amazing.
Off to Michigan we went! We were backstage and engaged! Now the en’rage’ment party began.
So being on the extreme high that comes from dancing your ass off and getting engaged to the love of your life really sets you on a path to be in the flow of prosperity. We came back to TN elated for what the future would hold for us. We had no idea what we were in store for.
We came to the Red House and met the owner. David built the home back in 1980’s because someone told him he could not build a passive solar efficient house in the hills of the Cohutta so he did. He did it with such spiritual intent that you could literally feel the protection. I never wanted to leave. For the most part I didn’t!
Every inch, every detail, every piece of stained glass was meant to be there. He built it to where there was a silent meditation space in the center of the house in between the closets but above the stairs. The sun would rise into the triangle stained glass and prisms would shoot everywhere. The windows! OH THE WINDOWS!!!!
He told us of his love of the house and how it was only ever him and his wife. We would be the first family with a child to come into this space. That was magical. Little did we know 4 weeks later I would find out we were being graced with another spirit. The day we moved David gave me the book he had written called, There is A Tomorrow which I read in two days. I highly suggest if you are having a hard time with the current state of the country/the world to read this book and open yourself up to a different frequency. David’s wife was a magical woman who was a high priestess in ancient Egyptian magic. She built a huge crystal altar next to a 200 year old tree and I could feel her energy every where, especially around the crystal altar. I knew this was her sacred space. It became such a strong hold for me and saw so many rituals.
Here is where I really dove into myself. This is where I started my esoteric studies in The Emerald Tablets, Nikola Tesla, Tarot, Herbalism, Shamanism, Crystal Healing, and really went head first into my Reiki therapy. I also found out I was pregnant with my second child and became very empowered to have a natural home birth.
I told my friends I was really connecting to Mother Nature. Living in this space with an orchard, passive solar energy, giant black snakes that called the place home, all of it was a great release for me. We were so much in nature that I even found a snake in my dresser drawer one day! Talk about freaking the F out! I lived in it! It wasn’t just some trip into the river and you see a snake run away, It was a god damn snake in my house. Not just on one occasion. There were at least 5 times when we had to get snakes out of the house. Medicine from mama!
We loved this space and in turn we wanted to give back to David once we were gone. So we built many regenerative garden beds, secured the balcony for the little ones, painted the entire place, and gave all the love we could to each other and the radical group of neighbors that lived around the hill with us.
Through that time we always had our plans to move to Colorado. First it was going to be after our little sunshine was born. Then it turned into after the wedding. But as the gypsys souls we have come from, we decided to drive hours to a festival, celebrate with our closest friends, and then move across the country.
It was bittersweet to move away from all the work we had put into making this little slice of heaven our own. So when it was time to come to Colorado, I knew that’s where my work would really begin.
Here we are. Living a dream that we created in the Rocky Mountains. I do miss our gypsy hut and all the memories we made there will stay with me forever. Today I carry on this knowledge of all the wonderful gifts I gained out in the wilderness for a year and a half. I hope to build our own passive solar efficient house here one day or maybe I can get David to collaborate on a special hempcrete one! Hey a girl can dream!
I’m ready for spring for a number of reasons. For the earth for pop open with beautiful new growth, to see the trees fill up again, to be able to warm our house with the sun and be filled with the greatest light. Especially for little baby Rory to be here in our little cottage in the woods.
These cute little pigs were just hanging out at the end of the driveway this morning:) #littlepiglittlepig

That polar alignment. “We’re on assignment, bodies on consignment, return them to the circus. What is the purpose? Would you believe it if you knew what you were for, and how you became so informed!? Bodies of info performing such miracles. I am a miracle made up of particles, and in this existence I’ll stay persistent and I’ll make a difference and I will have lived it. Aloha ke akua
At least 158 Million people worldwide use Cannabis for medicinal, recreational, and spiritual purposes. This number increases daily as more people understand the power of this plant, and women in Colorado are coming together to prove they also can benefit from the community it brings.
Entrepreneur and hierophant that Cannabis can help woman dissolve “the competition complex,” Maggie Murphy of Colorado, also known as The Stoned Housewife, is blazing this path with The Green Lodge Goddess Gathering.
Once each month, with dates currently scheduled through June 2017 at the Vali Soul Sanctuary in Boulder, healers from all over the world are invited to enrich the lives of the women at the Green Lodge Goddess Gatherings. The theme, though always centered around indigenous Earth Medicine, changes each month, so ladies are encouraged to attend as many as possible to build upon previous teachings. While the theme may change, Maggie insists that one thing is for certain,
“Participants can expect that Loren, the house Kundalini instructor, will push them and enhance their moon flow by giving them specific sound currents and mantras to open up the neural pathways and promote healing.”
Regular attendee, Danielle Webster shared her thoughts about the most recent gathering,
“I have to say, smoking indoors in a public space is really cool. It’s even cooler to do this in a space with a bunch of other lady stoners who are coming together to use cannabis in a thoughtful and lackadaisical way. It’s not just about getting stoned, it’s about connecting through the use of cannabis to relax everyone and make them more comfortable in the environment. “
Through the Stoned Housewife brand, Maggie, is continuing to expand this community with partnerships for future lodges in California, Arizona, and Nevada.
“I love to create a space where women can come together and try new aspects of healing on multiple levels, and where each individual feels like her being there contributes to everyone,” Maggie explained. As one of the most affordable Cannabis friendly workshops in the area, they also aim to give back as much as possible to the women. “There is a gift exchange at the end of each event, and every woman walks away with a newly blessed treasure. Sometimes a simple gift of the intention to make someone else happy is the most healing someone can get that day.”
When asked what her vision for the future of the Green Lodge is, Maggie explains,
“I want to continue this growing tribe of women and have lodges all around the world, Cannabis is a small but integral part of women coming together in a unifying setting. There is no need for the ego because we all come with the intention to be a community.”
Recapping the last Green Lodge, Danielle said, “We were all together chanting, moving, and holding our bodies. Loren (the lodge Kundalini Yoga instructor) pushed us as we did forms of yoga ‘exercises’ we’ve never done before, and as a team we all learned how hard it is to sit still. Certain chants made us laugh together, others made us cry, but overall we all felt 100% more connected than when we had began the gathering. ”
Future dates for the lodge include April 24th, May 22nd, June 26th.
Participants also have the opportunity to win prizes from Sponsors Stashlogix and LoveandMarij. These events are INVITATION ONLY. Click here to request yours today.

More women are using cannabis to enhance their beauty routine with night creams and bath bombs loaded with THC or CBD. Since you can’t legally toke up in a spa yet, I wanted to do a little in home experiment combining cannabis and crystals to make my own Stoned Spa experience.
Not many people dispute the medicinal properties of cannabis, but Crystal Healing still has some convincing to do on a national level. Crystals have a high rate of vibration so they are utilized widely in modern technology. There are liquid crystal diodes in calculators and the very phone you may be reading this on. They also are used in credit cards, fiber-optic phone lines, and laser technology. Crystals literally power our lives. If we could see the energy fields that make up each and everything, including us, we would all be carrying around crystals to protect and amplify our energy fields. Crystals have their own energy fields and the Crystal Kingdom began on earth before the plant kingdom, so they have a deeper healing property than we have yet to fully discover. Plus who doesn’t love feeling a little witchy?
Using cannabis topicals on your skin can deliver many anti aging benefits by combating wrinkles, fine lines, and dark spots. Cannabinoids, like CBD, are also known to have amazing anti inflammatory properties. Now you can bring your own spa into your bathroom by making a simple trip to the dispensary and your local metaphysical store. To get the full spa experience you will of course need candles and some crystals. To take it to the next level, I like to use a Malachite Bath Soak which charges the water with the healing properties of the crystals. Malachite is an extremely powerful metaphysical stone and is used for deep energy clearing. So if you have had, “one of those days” you are going to make this your new night-time ritual.
2 Tablespoons Aloe Vera Gel from Plant or Organic from Store
1 Tablespoon of finely ground cannabis flowers
For the Bath:
Dry Body Brush
Malachite Bath Soak
Heavenly Hash Bath By Mary Jane’s Medicinals
Bath Bomb of your choice (I love the CBD Lavender ones from Dank Essence)
A nicely rolled Joint, Blunt, Bowl
Time to relax
Mix the face mask ingredients into small bowl and stir until desired consistency is reached. Paint onto face avoiding eyes and hairline, letting mask dry while in the bath. Starting the bath water, add in the Malachite and Hash Bath satchel while the water is still running. While waiting for the bath to fill gently take the body brush and start gently dry brushing your skin.
Dry Brushing helps shed dead skin cells and encourages new cell renewal, leaving your skin more radiant as soon as you start brushing.
The Malachite will turn the water a mermaid green color. Step in and slowly start to dunk the bath bomb. I usually let it sit in my hand and float it around creating a circle. Then sit back and relax!
For an added healing element you can use a variety of mantras to dissolve blocks and let go of any unwanted tension. Being in a malachite bath is a PERFECT time to meditate and light up your joint! By now you are prob in a very relaxed state. If you are like me and enjoy mid afternoon baths, I would grab a sativa or sativa-dominant hybrid strain like Strawberry Cough, Durban Poison, Ghost Train Haze or Lambs Bread. Otherwise those night baths are a perfect pairing with an indica strain like Grand Daddy Purple, Violator Kush, G-13 or Bubba Kush. Once you are done with your smoke, gently lower your head into the bath soaking your hair and rubbing the charcoal and cannabis mask off. Keep a warm wash cloth next to you and gently wipe away any remaining pieces of the mask.
To complete your experience, pamper your body with almond oil or a CBD topical salve to give your skin that last little bit of glow. Store your extra mask, if any, in your fridge and use within 3 days.
Attending the Green Goddess Gathering was something I’ve been looking forward to for a while. I didn’t know what to expect because I wasn’t entirely sure what it was about, or what would happen, but I ended up learning a lot without learning about anything specifically.
I entered the environment really tired and exhausted after a long day. The initial community getting to know one another was nice as you get to talk to fellow girls that came as well as take part in the communal passing of the peace pipe as well as indulging in some cannabis samples that were supplied from guest vendors.
I have to say, smoking indoors in a public space is really cool. It’s even cooler to do this in a space with a bunch of other lady stoners who are coming together to use cannabis in a thoughtful and lackadaisical way. It’s not just about getting stoned, it’s about connecting through the use of cannabis to relax everyone and make them more comfortable in the environment.
It’s amazing what a little bit of safe space, and some like minded women can do to your soul. I felt like anything I were to do or say would be accepted, and that feeling takes you far places. We all learned beautiful mantras taught to us by a Kundalini Yoga master, Loren. These not only were peaceful but pushed us past our limits. Slight movements and isometric movements, combined with chants and sounds can do so much for your spiritual body and mind.
We all were together chanting, moving, and holding our bodies. Loren pushed us as we did forms of yoga ‘exercises’ we’ve never done before and as a team we all learned how hard it is to sit still. Certain chants made us laugh together, others made us cry, but overall we all felt 100% more connected than when we had began the gathering.
With intermittent weed smoking and endless hugs, we all ended the class with a gift exchange. Seriously, what more could women want besides bud, hugs, and presents??? Put on by woman boss Maggie Murphy, this goddess gathering was truly inspirational and I can definitely say that the peaceful and calming energy of sitting and tuning in can provide you more energy than you ever thought possible. I left feeling re-charged, happier, and having a better state of mind than when I entered.
How many people have seen images of bongs, pipes, and joints out in the wide open space that it makes some part of you long to be in the frame? I won’t lie, by the time we pack up two kids and essentials for a hike 7 times out of 10 , we forget to get the cannabis. Now with the many ways to consume, such edibles and vaporizers you can get stoned on the go in all your favorite places while grabbing that Instagram worthy photo.
Check out my list of 7 of my favorite places to tune in and connect with Mother Nature!
