How singer and songwriter Sky redefines healing and growth through music and friendship.
Glennon Doyle once wrote that “grief is love’s souvenir.” Plainly, it’s the proof we lived through the hard sh*t. I’ve also heard it said that grief is just “love with nowhere to go.” You can avoid it, or shove it, and maybe that’s more comfortable for awhile, but why?
In everything, there is an inverse reaction. In every “happy,” there is a “sad.” Both are deeply necessary, and it’s up to us to download this fullness from our experiences.
The Law of Correspondence says that there’s harmony between the physical, mental, and spiritual experience: "As above, so below; as below, so above." Our outer world is a reflection of what’s happening inside of us, and vice versa. When we’re loving, that manifests in our day-to-day circumstances. When we’re grieving, same thing.
I’m reimagining what it looks like to be a “multi-hyphenate” woman by taking care of myself, and the collective, however I can. To have things I’ve never seen modeled for me before, to heal, to love fully and creatively, and to attract the journey here that my soul desires without judgement.

I grew up such a fearful, hyper-perfectionist and ‘yes’ gal. It took years to dismantle the roots of that (and I’m still working on it). But honestly, on the other side of 2020, I have this refreshed, divine knowing. The clarity and the gifts that the universe has given, or I’ve attracted feels genuinely...wild.
My wish is that every community would have equitable access to wellness and mental health resources to be able to start exploring themselves, address traumas, and engage in the road to healing safely.
I’m a huge breathwork and journaling advocate (my iPhone notes are...yikes). When I’m writing songs, I just pull from my journals. It’s a great (and free) way to archive waves you want to revisit and a tool for finding peace within a feeling.
