Bumpy Landings: How to Handle the Transition Times // Tea with Robin Podcast Episode 56

Posted Posted in Tea with Robin

I often wonder if more of us don’t choose to risk doing what we’d love because the fear of the unknown is just too great. I wonder sometimes if this is why I was always too broke or too busy to take the time or make the time… I see that pattern in my friends too. There’s always a really good sounding reason why we can’t. But we owe it to ourselves to ponder, are we really protecting our fear? As I’ve learned to risk my significance and honor the… …Read More »

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

Posted Posted in Intuitive Healing, Media
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 »

Little Birdies Need Love Too: Understanding Why We Numb in Order to Cope

Posted Posted in Rock Star Readings, The Journey

Many of us turn to numbing out as a coping strategy. I wish it wasn’t so hard to talk about openly. I hope if you have found this article, my sharing helps you. I turned 50 this year. I’ve been loving myself more fiercely.  Making peace with my heart. Accepting who I am. Releasing who I am not. I’m deepening my love and appreciation for the parts of me I’ve struggled with. Less war and shame, more love and appreciation. Yay! I still struggle finding my own compassion. It’s getting… …Read More »

On Thriving and Why It’s so Important to Receive Support // Tea with Robin Podcast Episode 43

Posted Posted in Tea with Robin

I sit for guidance for every person I see in the healing room that day and today’s messages are all about the way we need to allow ourselves to receive help. We need to learn how to let ourselves be supported and to know that it’s okay to admit we need help instead of always having to be the strong one holding it all together. There’s no shame in needing help. There’s no shame in wanting to be supported. In having our needs met, and being helped. We don’t always… …Read More »

It’s Okay to Have a Bad Day // Tea with Robin Podcast Episode 40

Posted Posted in Tea with Robin
It’s OK If It Wasn’t Good. It’s OK to Stop Pretending.

There’s nothing wrong with you if you have a bad day. If you feel sad or off sometimes, it’s okay. What the big deal is what we choose to do about it. We are so much more than the stories we tell. We are joy. We are light. We are infinite possibility. And we always have the freedom to go down the tubes with the klinky thinking. Or not. In this episode of Tea with Robin, we’re talking about the ups and downs of everyday life and how to take… …Read More »

When Mother’s Day is a Mixed Bag

Posted Posted 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 »

Belonging was never about you fitting in, it was always about coming home to yourself.

Posted Posted in Rock Star Readings

Most of us have a wounded understanding of what it means to belong. It’s not what our inner 5th grader thinks; it’s not the desperate longing to fit in so you feel normal and safe and okay. It doesn’t come from you conforming to what other people find acceptable. No, belonging isn’t what the inner 5th grader in you thinks it is. Most of us carry woundings around what it meant to be loved and accepted as kids. In one way or another, we had to betray our true nature… …Read More »

Love with a Backbone

Posted Posted in The Journey
Robin Hallett Poetry Collection

I have no interest in adding any more darkness in the world. I will not contribute to the anger, the meanness. I’m not interested in dissonance. Don’t talk to me about all the a*holes who are making things worse for the world. Instead, tell me what YOU are doing to be a force for good. Tell me what you’re doing to contribute something helpful. Love is my dharma and I will practice this wherever I go. In times like these I ask myself the following: Can I keep abreast of… …Read More »

Read This When You’re Beating Yourself Up Again

Posted Posted in Intuitive Healing

This is a love letter to my friends who struggle with repeating patterns of behavior and have a hard time breaking free. And sometimes beat themselves up about it. I put myself in that camp too. Ahhh what great company we keep! Hello Sweetie, I am writing to you now because I can see you are going there again. That thing you do has happened again and now you’re heading for that yukky-poo place you go to when you do the kinds of things you just can’t face. It’s okay… …Read More »

It’s OK to Want What You Want and It Doesn’t Make You Bad or Wrong

Posted Posted in Intuitive Healing

It’s okay to want what you want. What you are wanting for yourself and for your life is never ever bad or wrong. Never ever, ever ever. In fact, what you are wanting points right back to the essential and unique spark of the Divine that you truly are. You’re a one of a kind original and the things you love and enjoy and desire are a reflection of this spark. It’s okay to want what you want. Even in the absence of the evidence that it can happen. Even… …Read More »

How to Stop Chasing Rainbows and Find the Treasure Within

how-to-stop-chasing-rainbows

Whenever I hear the Adele song Chasing Pavements I usually goof and sing, “should I give up or should I just keep chasing rainbows…” That’s probably because chasing rainbows is something I know a lot about. I’m sure most of us do. There’s a suffering story we carry inside–maybe it’s about us or maybe it’s about our lives–and that suffering prods us to search for an answer. Or a fix. Or a complete overhaul. Some kind of cure. Maybe it’s a training, or an exercise program, or a financial Roto-Rooter. We’re… …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 »
