    A Journey of Sexual Healing

    By Stacy Walker, Guest Contributor All opinions expressed in this article are the sole perception/experience of the writer, and may not necessarily be shared by Michelle Lewis – The Blessings Butterfly. All Rights Reserved. It’s been just over five years, five years since I’ve had any intimacy. No sex, no kissing and no cuddles. This wasn’t initially my decision, and at first for a long while, I’ll be honest it felt like a slow torturous death for me. Because in many ways it was.

    Lessons from the Kitchen

    One of my favorite things about our new house (besides everything!) is the luxury of having a nice big open kitchen. I LOVE to cook, and bake, and get creative with food.

    #FridayFeels New Moon Intentions + Summer Solstice

    As we enter this New Moon and a new season following the recent Solstice, You may have felt a little bombarded by what felt like competing energies these past couple of days (or weeks, if you’re extra sensitive like me!). Take some time today to get grounded- yoga outside, meditation near the water, a soulful walk under the trees, or a date simply stargazing- and remember that you are not at the mercy of the Universe; no, Love, You are a partnership! Do the inner work of your soul-healing each day, and let this mantra be a part of your…
