I Belong Here

Over the last 12 years in Toronto, I saw not much value in developing a community. I came to the city to achieve my goals… not to play around. There was “no time” to spend on anything other than what was directly related to manifesting my music and wellness careers,...

Runway to Recovery

In a lot of ways, my whole life has felt like walking a “runway.” Fast paced. Non-stop. Observed by crowds and cameras. And one hell of a shit show backstage.Whether it be stepping in front of an audience to sing, in front of a group of athletes to teach a Joga class, or in front of aspiring coaches to lead a training, I’ve always excelled at what I do- even at the expense of my mental and physical health.

pain

lifelong cycle, grants us the courage to feel joy more fully when it’s present and prevent us from spiralling when it isn’t. I’m not sure life is “easy” for anyone, but we can start to develop a sense of ease within our lives once we commit to putting in the work every single day to heal. We can only heal if we’re brave enough to face and embrace our pain.

Psycho

iTunes Introducing Marella Jane: Ok I admit it…. The star target in “Psycho” is a guy that I once loved, in fact my first love. (If you’re reading this, thank you for the inspiration.. I truly couldn’t have done it without you. ) Of course I didn’t actually mean the things I said about following him home, choking the soul out of him, throwing a knife at his throat etc., it was just something I took prodigious pleasure in fantasizing, writing and singing about.

Anxiety

Boom. I never see it coming, and it scares the life out of me every time. Cold as ice and crippling. Like an invisible sledge hammer demolishing my chest, sending numbness to my extremities. A black snake slithers in through the shards of my pounding, broken heart, and up my neck where it coils itself around, choking off my voice. I am small and helpless compared to the monster inside, eating me alive. I could die.
