I started this blog 11 years ago to document my private life and share my personal knowledge and experiences gained in the world. I over-shared maybe a bit too much. I connected with people. I told life stories of hard growth and true joy. I became a mother, a wife, a puzzle solver, a self-healer, a home-gardener, a cookbook author, a photographer, and so much more in this process. I created recipes, DIY’s, home design tips, wellness hacks, and as many creative and healthful, and eco-friendly things I could offer. I fell into illness and dove deeper into research and exploration of healing and the natural world.
While never holding back from the personal details, I created a business from learning and sharing. I made money selling sponsorships and advertisements. And I did it all publically online for well over a decade. The internet had changed a lot since then, and I’m looking for a more personal-focused quiet life online. I want to keep sharing content, but I want to get more into the grassroots and uninhibited model I started with. And so from here on out… this space will be a primarily donation-based, community-run platform. Is there something you want to learn? Something you want to see? Useful knowledge you have gained? Let’s exchange our energy.
From personal experience, I’ve learned that we truly can create, manifest, or call in the reality and future we want. Letting go of fear, indoctrinated constructs and mindsets, following our innate intuition, and leading with curiosity can bring us to a better future self.
Interconnections and synchronicity are everywhere! We just have to look. After all, everything is connected. If our past selves are connected to our present selves, then why don’t we consider the fact that our present selves are connected to our future selves? With a little bit of focus and intention, I truly believe we can step into everything we want and more. I’m grateful your path led you here. You have been and are part of my growth process and I hope to be part of yours too. Thank you for finding me in this space. I look forward to sharing life with you and connecting here on ohdeardrea and in person at future Paloma Sol retreats.
ARE YOU READY TO JUMP INTO LIFE'S ADVENTURES?
Do you want to live a more simple, clean, focused, joyful, healthy, and curious life? Want to feel free? Want to BE free? Want to eat more in tune with the earth? Do you want to de-clutter the noise, the materialism, the consumeristic ideas that are sold to us? Want to step through fear and get to a life that seems idealistic, but far from the norm and maybe just too out of reach? Do you want to learn more and grow every day and connect with like-minded individuals who are also questioning the “norm”?
You’re not alone in the world. There are a lot of us asking questions and wanting to govern our own health and well-being. Questions, self and communal learning, and deeper connections are welcomed and honored here in this space.
Through blog posts, videos, and more, I hope to share my story and show others that they too create their potential and control their futures. But more than that, this space is about connection and growth in the world and with each other.
I hope to continue sharing in a fluid space. A place to create and share the new norm and the new structures together with those who want to support. There will be nothing done ‘by the book’ here— I’m growing too. Just courage and a belief that we can collectively create better lives for ourselves and for all beings and energies around us. I hope to help guide and inspire. I appreciate your support and energy in all our life dreams and off-grid endeavors in the world. Thanks for being here. Please come on in.
SUPPORT OHDEARDREA + PALOMA SOL:
All donation options are billed monthly and offer full access to all ohdeardrea private content. New personal journals, videos, recipes, how-to’s and so much more. Your donation directly supports our family, the Paloma Sol project, the ohdeardrea site, and future content creation. We’re so very grateful to you. Thank you!
CHOOSE YOUR KARMIC RATE:
But why are there so many price options? We want you to take a minute to sit with yourself and tune in. What rate can you afford? What karmic monetary energy can you offer? There are zero expectations on this end. We understand that we will find ourselves in different places at different time periods of our lives. For some months and years, the energy is flowing. Other times it is not. At the end of the day, while we do appreciate (and rely on) your monetary support to keep the back end of this system and the hours of quantitative time up and running, the most important thing to us is the emotional energy you bring to this space. We believe that the positive energy we put out will be drawn right back to us. A positive charge creates a positive charge.
WHAT IF MY SITUATION CHANGES AND I WANT TO CONTRIBUTE MORE OR LESS?
You can easily cancel your chosen donation tier and sign up again at a new price of your choosing at any time 🙂
WHY IS THERE A PRICE TO ACCESS CONTENT AT ALL?
It takes hours of work to create one post. And even longer to create videos. On top of that, we have to pay the back-end of this system to keep this platform up and running. For every member that signs up, there is a fee that gets paid out to our system. Keeping a private blog ensures that the people who choose to visit and collaborate with the energy in this space, truly want to be here to support. We want to keep this space a positive space for the people truly looking for inspiration and growth. READ MORE HERE.
WHY NOT PATREON?
This is basically that. But, because I like organization and I want all my memories to be in one place, I’ve set up the system on ohdeardrea. There is A LOT of content here– and I want to keep this space my home 🙂 No need to go back and forth to different websites.
WANT TO CONTRIBUTE IN ADDITIONAL WAYS?
We’ve added a “buy a tree” option to raise funds to grow new life on our farm. Alternately, you can tell a friend or family member to check out our new paloma sol project and Instagram! We want you guys to be part of our process and we deeply appreciate any and all support you can send our way! We’re going to need a lot of love and resources to make this dream grow <3
