What Does Healthy Mirroring Look Like? Receiving Help for Yourself and Why That’s Okay // Tea with Robin Episode 107

Posted on

It blows my mind sometimes how distorted our thinking is around receiving help. Many of us grew up blaming ourselves for the lack/failure/brokenness around us and carry shame to this day about admitting to our own needs. In this episode, I share some love on what it’s like to receive from a clear or healthy mirror. I talk about my own journey being the client in the healing room and share some insider stories I’ve lived. Plus, I share some beautiful books that have helped me on the journey and… …Read More »

This Is Not Another “Just Suck It up and Keep Moving Forward” Post

Not Another "Just Suck it Up and Keep Moving Forward" Post

It is nearly impossible to birth yourself alone and on your own and yet every day I hear from people who are attempting to do just that. Rather than supporting the “just suck it up and keep moving forward” movement, I want to encourage you to stop and acknowledge the tender spots you find inside and make room for what they’re asking of you. These tender places bring guidance. They contain information and lots of nuggets that your spirit needs for the journey ahead. If you are someone who is… …Read More »

On Healing Our Religious-Icky

Posted on
Healing the Religious Icky

Many of us left childhood with some seriously warped understandings about God. It’s hard when the early teachings of our little selves bump up against the infinite and timeless beings we actually are. A spiritual practice is going to bring these bumps along for healing on your journey to wholeness and it’s important you allow yourself to heal the “religious-icky” (that’s what I call it) you may be carrying. We often find a curiosity at first about how this spirituality thing goes together with the limitations of our early religious… …Read More »

Soul Meets Body // Tea with Robin Episode 98

Posted on

When we fall into the old stories of upset, comparison, not being good enough, we are in our suffering. As hard as it seems to be, it is still possible to help ourselves out of that hole by recognizing our choice to give our attention to this upset again. In this episode, I talk about going beyond the familiar places of our upsetting ego stories and practicing rising today. Are we ready to ascend? Honestly, I am not always sure I am ready! But the truth is, we can’t hold… …Read More »

The Abundance Series Part 3: Stop Repenting and Forgive your mistakes already

Posted on

  For years after my mother’s death, I had this recurring nightmare: She was returned from the dead, and she wanted her money back. The worst part about those dreams was the part where I had to explain to her that the money was all gone. My throat would close up and I couldn’t speak to her. I’d wake up sweaty and terrified. I felt like such a shitty person, a total loser. 90% of the time I am firmly in the camp of I am done repenting for my… …Read More »

Our Dads Were on a Journey Too

dad

I was baking cookies when my aunt called to say that my dad had died. She had to repeat herself twice. And the shock of it all was so much that I burned my arm on the oven rack, forgetting to use the oven mitts. I still have the scar along the inside of my forearm. It was Christmas time, and our household was in the midst of Gingerbread House Party preparations. People were coming and this wasn’t supposed to be happening now. I had been calling my dad for… …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.

originally published June, 2017 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!… …Read More »

When It’s Time to Take off the Superhero Cape

Posted on

Superheroing is something we learned to do. Many of us learned to fly with our capes on before we could even walk. Keeping the peace and keeping people happy mattered to our own survival and so the needs and wants of the people around us came first. Often we were at the mercy of these people (and their moods) and so our own needs became tied to making things easier/better/happier for others. Their happiness equaled ours, their upset equaled ours. Today this need to take care of people in order… …Read More »

The Stupid Things People Say and How to Be Free of Their Opinions

Posted on
your way is the right way

Learning to walk away from the stupid things people say and not need their good opinions of me has been a huge challenge on my journey. There are times when I get caught up in feeling hurt and upset, but I disentangle myself again. My recovery time is quicker these days because I remember my practice and I get free. I am learning not to NEED anyone to love me or applaud me or give me their blessing for me to feel permitted to shine and sing my song. But… …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 »
