About mariner2mother

I'm a mother of a very spirited 15 year old son, and a former merchant ship's deck officer. To feed my creative side I take photos. I am also Reiki attuned and am a student of Energy Healing, having used several healing modalities to work on myself and my family. Our most recent adventure has me homeschooling my teenager and going through a spontaneous Kundalini Awakening.

Thoughts

Washing dishes, mindlessly, Thoughts swirl through my head. Pushing the vacuum and wiping up dirt, Thoughts swirl through my head. Soaking in the tub And washing up in the shower, Thoughts swirl through my head. Mowing the yard, around and … Continue reading

A Sliver

My moods have been all over the place lately. But I feel like home base is a feeling of hope and faith. The belief that everything will be ok in the end, no matter what. It’s really, really challenging at … Continue reading
