Greetings. I’m Dominica, author + blogger + recovery advocate, and I’d like to welcome you to this sacred space of musings from my heart. It’s a safe space for me – and for you – to discover and get to know our sacred, luminous spirits through this journey we call life. This is a space you’ll be seen, celebrated, and encouraged. A place that feels like home. Whether you’re dealing with addiction, codependency, depression, anxiety, emptiness, or more, this is your permission to begin to entertain a new story about your life – a better life.
You are a sacred powerhouse.
And it’s time to peel back the layers and shed what no longer serves you, heal, reconnect with God at the core, and navigate life spiritually. No running. Rather, facing, embracing, processing, and recycling pain into purpose.
I’m not promising you that you’ll never feel pain again, because in all likelihood, you will. In fact, I write quite a bit about feeling pain, but we don’t have to feel it or face it alone. That existential angst or pathological loneliness or exhausting emptiness we feel all point us in the same direction – connection. To each other and to God, however you define God. I don’t have all the answers. In fact, I have so many unanswered questions, and I’m blogging my way through it all. Feel free to join me.

The dark period of my life was necessary. The pain, suffering, confusion, and wandering all served a larger purpose - the death of me. The death of my ego. The death of fleshly driven hopes and dreams. “Listen carefully: Unless a grain of wheat is buried in the...read more
Saying No Is An Art: Here's How to do it Gracefully It was the kind of text that made my shoulders slump. A friend of a friend had asked me to write a short e-book for her business. "It's super short," she explained, obviously hoping I'd be able to...read more

Most of us began the New Year with a bang. With written down goals, dream board, drenched with ambition. I began the New Year empty. Maybe even numb. Why? Honestly, I don’t know. All the books I’ve read, motivational mojo I’ve listened to, and people I’ve talked to...read more
My fingers slowly trace the outline of my face in the reflection of the tarnished mirror. I notice each delicate curve, feature and the way my eyes look hollow. Deadness. I tighten my brows and look deeper, thinking just maybe I’d see something worth salvaging in my...read more
