I'm Moving


Yup!
I'm moving.

Where to? Well, I've been kind of living there already.

My blogs will now be on my website 

It makes sense.

I thought about moving everything over, 
however it feels too heavy.

On a Journey Back to Her Wings has been 
all about just that -
me - getting my wings back - 
learning, growing, transformations, and my discoveries.

From here - my blogs will be even more inspiring with lessons I've learned, magickal inspiration, authentic suggestions - all from my heart and soul.

Thank you for being on this adventure with me.
I hope you will continue the travel.

Follow me on the journey!

Thank you.

25 Self Care Ideas


Do you practice self care?

I sure do. 

When it is time for Amy self care -

I read. or write. or take myself out to dinner. or watch a movie. or go for a latte and people watch. or create a necklace. or go for a walk downtown. or spend time in my garden. 
or whatever makes me happy at that moment. 

Self care is soooooo very important. 

I feel it's the foundation of you.

Some people seem to get confused about self care. 
They mistakenly call self care acts "selfish". 
This fires me up! 

There is a huge difference in practicing self care and 
being selfish. 

Self care is never ever selfish. 

You have to take care of yourself first! 
Taking care of yourself makes you a better you all around.

You'll be happier, healthier, and will be able to 
take better care of others. 
We must fill ourselves up first with self-love and respect. 
When we are filled, then we have enough to give to others. 
You cannot give from an empty well. 

You have a right to say no to 
people/situations without explanation. 

You are in control of you and your life. 

You decide how much you want to handle.

Remember making yourself a priority and loving yourself doesn't make you selfish. 

It makes your soul shine!

5 Tips to Thriving in Asheville


Did you fall madly in love with Asheville and 
just had to move here?

Were you drawn to the magical possibilities just waiting for you in the mountains?

Well, Asheville isn't always 
double rainbows and unicorn magic.

I fell hard for the magical city years ago and
when I made my move to Asheville on 
May 1, 2009 -

I couldn't have been happier.

My dream came true.

I rode my Asheville rainbow of bliss for a good year.

Then things started to crumble.
Financially, it was rather difficult.
At one time I had 4 jobs just to pay the bills.
The friends I had made starting moving away due to 
their own Asheville struggles. 

It's been quite the rollercoaster!

Through the years I've developed some strategies
that help me stay here in my 
happy-healing-mountain dream town. 

Together, let's learn how to thrive in Asheville.

Love Our True Selves

I like to read something inspirational every morning. 

Lately, my book of choice is, 
by Julia Cameron. 

This particular insight really touched my soul.
It's a beautiful reminder that we are 
all beautiful in our own unique ways. 

Honor each other for that. 

Let your own light shine and 
allow those in your life to shine their own light.



I love others for their true selves.

I bless and salute the divine goodness available 
in all human beings and in all human beings. 

I allow people to be uniquely themselves, 
bringing their true natures and true gifts to our relationships.

 I do not demand that those who love me change 
their essential nature for my comfort. 

I do not hide or pretend I am different from what I am. 

I trust that each of us is a 
perfect part of the divine whole. 

I trust that each of us is as lovable as we are.

I allow originality, inventiveness, and variability in 
my loving relationships. 

I invite the unique souls in my life to 
love me as their true selves allow.

Insight from the Universe

I love a good reading.

When I vended at the Sunshine Market in West Asheville, 
I met Kelley. 

She dug a couple of my cigar box purses, 
so we did some bartering.

She said she would give me a reading.



Ohhhhh...yeah....

It's been quite some time since I've had a good reading.

For me, a good reading is advice from the Universe.

It helps you make sense of all that which 
is spinning around in your head. 

It brings out the crap that is sitting deep in your subconscious.



Kelley used the Osho Zen Tarot.

I love this deck. 

It's beautiful and is always an amazing guide to 
what's going on deep within.

I took lots and lots of notes -
mad scribbling as she spoke.

I was quite surprised at some things -
like the "RAGE" she said I had deep inside me.

Hmm - I don't feel angry.

She said I had let go mentally and emotionally, 
but physically it was still there.

She suggested I make art and 
work on this when the moon is at its darkest.

I wrote out a list of possible rage suspects.

Along with a kick ass playlist of Joan Jett, Marilyn Manson, NIN, PJ Harvey, and Tool - 
I got out a piece of canvas, markers, and lots of paint.

I started writing on the canvas things that I could possibly be holding onto deep within.

And I kept going.

I found it.

Unleashed it.

Cried. 

Kept writing.

And then - I started throwing paint all over it with my fingers.

Forget paint brushes

This was some hands-on work.

A heart emerged.

A fiery, orange busting heart.

From my heart rises fierce joy. 

I've released, let go, and begin anew.


"This is a new day. 
Begin anew to claim and create all that is good." 
- Louise L. Hay

I totally recommend Kelley - 
I'm unable to find her on social media - 
but if you are up for old school phone calling - 
here's her business card.
