This Mental Trick Makes It Way Easier To Accept Change

This Mental Trick Makes It Way Easier To Accept Change

Maybe it’s an old job. A relationship. A habit. A pattern. You can always find something that’s begging for change.

There are moments during the process of transformation when we feel high on life, like a superhero. "Yes, I did it! I left that unhealthy relationship!" But every up has a down. And things can quickly become ugly, uncomfortable, and awkward as we grieve and let go. Then, we can begin the rebirth process, which can be so embarrassing! Think Bambi legs. Or the moment a caterpillar is primordial goo in a cocoon before it hits supermodel status as a butterfly. Or the state Buddhists call "sunyata." It’s like "Hey. I’m just chilling in the void. Dunno who I am or what's next."

WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT THE PLANT MEDICINE

WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT THE PLANT MEDICINE

On a recent evening at the Cannabis Feminist Circle in Marina del Rey, a group of about 15 women, mostly in their late 20s and early 30s, get stoned. Several are impossibly beautiful without makeup, four of us have recently moved to LA from New York City, and quite a few appear to be Jewish. It’s my second circle, and this time I don’t light up, determined to remember the meeting’s details and to take notes. My memory has been failing me for a while now, though appropriately, I can’t remember if it was ever that good to begin with. Read More Here

Is Sign Compatibility BS or Essential?

Is Sign Compatibility BS or Essential?

Are you one of those people who immediately asks your crush his or her birth date? Then, you Google to find his or her sun sign, moon sign, and chew on your fingernails as you stare at both your charts, hoping the stars are leaning in the direction of true love? I am! Okay, usually I'm a little bit more stealthy—it’s not like I’ll bring up sign compatibility within the first five minutes of meeting—but as someone who has track records with certain signs, I hold my breath until I know what sign I'm going on a date with. Because if I know I’m going on a date with an Aquarius man, I can look back at the six Aquarius men from the past two years that I’ve dated and take a moment to pause and be real with what I can expect. It's like anything in life—you live, you learn! Read More Here

Here's Why May-September Romances Are Better Than Therapy

Here's Why May-September Romances Are Better Than Therapy

In the past year or so there have been many suitors in my life. And it’s been ... interesting! There was the guy at Burning Man I was convinced was my future baby daddy—until I stepped away to get us some Kombucha and saw him fondling another woman’s dreadlocks. There was the dreamy-poet-artist with a low ponytail and ocean eyes who recited me Rilke, called me a Goddess, and then casually revealed he had stalked a few women, been to jail, and was living on a friend’s couch. Then there was the insanely hot 6'4" Adonis who took me home for a "medicine ceremony," which turned out to be code for "sex." In fact, the more I think of it, the more I realize just how many of my suitors have been SNAGS—Spiritual New Age Guys—who are under the age of 24. Hmmm.

Revere (Never Fear!) Your Inner Sex Witch

Revere (Never Fear!) Your Inner Sex Witch

Do you ever wonder how some women can walk into a room and turn everyone’s heads? Sure, some are drop dead gorgeous by pretty much every standard. But more often than not, they just have an unspoken mystique that exudes from within. I remember when I was 14, a suave senior boy said to me, “Roxo, you have a special mystique. And you know it, don’t you?”
