Expedition 16-Beyond The Beads

Expedition 16-Beyond The Beads

Intuition is a beautiful thing and for one to understand the magnitude one must be willing to go through hell to find the beauty within that pulls at us when we need answers the most. I started making mala’s & bracelets to calm my anxiety & avoid the grips of depression after taking a leave from my corporate job last June. I recall thinking then that this leave would only be a few weeks. But as the months went on, I learned that the distrust in humanity & my fears post-accident were far more serious than what I’d originally thought....

Expedition 11: Struggling to Manage Expectations

Expedition 11: Struggling to Manage Expectations

Although I’ve faced some pretty tough obstacles in my treatment to date the biggest one was brought to my attention recently by my husband. I spoke with my driver rehab therapist about it and he agreed that this was an area which would be helpful in managing my recovery. What is it you ask? Managing Expectations… This journey has opened my eyes to whom I am able to rely upon when things in my life aren’t going well. So here comes the guilt…I realize I have a great job, great husband, daughter and in general life (minus my current mental...

Expedition 15: Memories-Christmas Eve

The seasons change year after year, we evolve as people, our families grow and shrink but one thing always remains MEMORIES.

It has been a fair amount of time since I felt the presence of my Grandmother around me I used to feel her often. For some reason today she came to me but not before dropping a bunch of hints. There was the dime I found seconds after clearing my kitchen table yesterday, the photographs my Aunt posted on Facebook...

Expedition 14: Removing Obstacles- Mala Practice 101

Taking a time out in life is so crucial especially today when we forget to get off the hamster wheel of life. It keeps us in that habitual redundant cycle of working, earning spending, working, earning, spending. SuburbZen was born out of a scary place that I found myself in my own mind. I had been so wrapped up in my career and the happiness I had finally acquired professionally that I refused to acknowledge the suffering I was in following a motor vehicle accident. This accident left me questioning many things such as the integrity and kindness of humanity,...

Expedition 13: Essential Oil Blends

Expedition 13: Essential Oil Blends

I’ve been so busy lately putting myself out there with my creative therapy that I haven’t been able to blog much. Telling my story when I am out there interacting with others has become very liberating. Although I find I still need the recharge I didn’t used to need before my accident. I’ve learned to sense the signals my mind and body give me so I am able to shut down before crisis mode strikes. Yesterday, for example I simply shut off all things SuburbZen for a few hours to focus on some personal writing projects. I’ve been turning to...
