About Natural Mama Notes

I hold many passions; most revolve around health and wellness in all of their facets. I coach people to reach their highest expression of life, starting from wherever they are--www.daniellecleary.org. I educate people about toxins in their personal care products and help them choose safer options--www.naturalmamasolutions.com. I believe energy is the most powerful product we each put out into the world. And I believe music and dancing can heal the soul.

#thestruggleisreal

For me, summertime didn’t REALLY exist (in it’s current incarnation) until I had children. Sure, I was once a kid.  And then I grew up and lived in San Diego (where “summer” is a term we use loosely–it’s kind of … Continue reading

The Space to Release

Clench.  Grip.  Tighten.  Hold On. Relax.  Open.  Loosen.  Release. And so between two extremes the pendulum swings…back and forth, back and forth.  Or does it? I just spent a week in Colorado.  The first five days were planned, with almost … Continue reading
