Get Ready for Some Serious April Lovin’

“We are psychologically, emotionally, cognitively, and spiritually hardwired for connection, love, and belonging. Connection, along with love and belonging (two expressions of connection), is why we are here, and it is what gives purpose and meaning to our lives.” Brené Brown (from Daring Greatly)

APRIL is all about LOVE. In Roman times, the month of April was sacred to the goddess Venus – she who governed beauty, love, fertility and regeneration. When you boil love down to it’s most basic core, it’s all about connection.

Not surprisingly, lack of love is all about disconnection:

  • disconnection from self;
  • blocked creativity (not just in art, but in all areas of life);
  • isolation from others; and
  • shying away from giving to, or receiving from the world.


This month on the blog, we’ll be diving into some seriously juicy LOVE topics: self-love, creativity and love, love for others, and sharing love with the world through your gifts and abilities. We’ll explore some of those dark and dingy disconnections, and allow Venus to shine her light on what it is to be deeply connected to love.

I grew up believing that love was something that you needed to ‘get’ from others. That if you couldn’t get it, there was something wrong with you. That if you had it from others or the world, and then lost it, life wasn’t worth living. Those beliefs led to some serious disconnection within myself, with others and in the way I related to the world and life. They took a healthy dose of inquiry to name and release!

My relationship with love and connection is very different now. I’m tender with myself, which leads to more patience and compassion with others. I’m clear on my gifts and the best ways I can offer them that serve others, life and me! I am (most of the time) in love with the world and my life. We all have bad days, right?

I invite you to take a journey with me this luscious Venus April, and dive deep into those four love areas. This is an invitation to shed some old baggage, bring more love into your life, and ignite your capacity for joy.

I’m also going to be giving away some brilliant tools for self-reflection, and crafting some juicy offers to get you loved up and connected to your joy. If you’d like to access these special April bonuses, join my community HERE.
