I danced to this full 4 minute song 4 TIMES & I’m having a difficult time choosing a mere minute to post, so I will be dropping raw footage of this daily for the next week or so!
So thankful that I got the opportunity to dance for @romeloganmusic’s beautiful music video but that I was sent the raw footage to enjoy as well! Thank you so much! I look forward to working with you in the future.
I’m not searching for validation. I wouldn’t share my art if I wasn’t confident in who I am & what I do. Mainly because people are so quick nowadays to tear someone down for damn near EVERYTHING; judging them to soon because they weren’t/aren’t opened minded to what that someone has to offer. You never know, it just may be exactly what you need.
I just love the mental process I go through when I improv. It’s meditative. It’s healing. Therapeutic. Rejuvenating. But most importantly, 100% me.

I left the full moon in Hawaii last night to visit family in Idaho (my first visit in nearly 3 years). I fell in love with Hawaii the second my family of four arrived on the Big Island, sight-unseen. The first year, I had frequent nightmares about visiting the mainland. In them, I would get get “stuck” in some strange fashion on the way to the airport and could not leave no matter how hard I tried. I’ve been through a lot of spiritual growth since then. This island seems to push people to do that. I am now in Idaho. I feel at peace. I am never “stuck” because I always have the choice of where I go next as well as how hard I am willing to push myself to do it. I am so grateful to see my family. Ironically, it turns out that I did not even “leave” the full moon, because there is one in Idaho tonight. 😊 Apparently, there is a bit of a time-lapse between states. I am so grateful for these “time lapses” in life. I am not leaving anything. I am bringing Aloha with me!🌺❤️ #grateful#idahoraised#takealohawithyou#alohaisfree#wechoose#wegettochoose#pushyourself#youcandoanything#hawaiilife#idaholife#itsuptous#youvegotthis#bigislandlove#called#iamavessel#getunstuck
ABOUT SELF AWARENESS AND CHANGES
I made this video for you all but I almost didn’t post it. I was seriously thinking too much about my #bodyimage and the changes my body is currently going through. 💃🏽. I am not ready to share with the world the root of it. DONT WORRY... Stick around and you will see and know sooner than later🤔😊. Those who know, hush yo’ mouth... All things will reveal in due time. ☺️❤️ #selfawareness#ChangeIsGood#Evolution#IamAVessel 🤗😊 #WhenSpiritSpeaks
ABOUT THIS SEQUENCE.....
Today I was meditating on how we are all #PartsOfTheWhole and was provoked to flow into this sequence incorporating the #PoseOfImmortality with #Tekken of the #KemeticYogaSkillsMethod and #headstand . This sequence promotes grounding, balance, stability, spinal health, strength in the limbs, openness of the throat chakra, openness of the heart chakra and the spirit.
ABOUT MY NEW TOY😃
Oh by the way, I’m part of the #IPhone family now so I’m playing with my phone.... 📱 ☺️☺️🤗🤗😁😁👌🏽
If this amazing trip has taught me anything it’s the fact that none of it would be possible without God.
I’m not saying I prayed super hard and he gave me plane tickets one day.
I’m saying God have me the drive and determination to make sure I booked and paid for this and the wisdom to realise how blessed I am and that not everyone is in my position.
God also gave me the sight to see that my talents and blessings are not for my own joy but to help those who don’t have what I have.
In 2018, I want to do more for others and those I love as well as smash my goals. What’s the point of getting to the top of the mountain if you have no one to share the view with?
I had the extreme honor of witnessing the baptism of this beautiful lady this morning. She’s faced death multiple times in the last two years and won the victory. Today was a symbol of the life before her. I never would have thought 2 years ago that starting my REFIT® classes would have crossed our paths and He would’ve used me to minister life. #iamavessel#neverquestionhisdirection#iamhonored#swipeformorepics
I made God a promise and it is my goal to keep it. I thank God for photography because it helps me do that! My focus is no longer on me but on those whom i come in contact with. I get the opportunity to make happy memories, encourage and most of all Love on those I meet through photography. I pray before my shoots because one i get nervous but also because I desire God's guidance in my sessions. I am His vessel. Whether I'm shooting someone in a session or just speaking to someone i ran into while holding the camera. The connections or never ending and the doors it opened has been an honor. #Pickupacamera#smile#love#network#enjoylife#noselfies#iamavessel#smilesbreathelife

Leaking nipples, milk stained clothes, 1-2 hr naps every 3-4 hrs (during the night any way 😜), foggy mind, breastfeeding challenges that aren’t getting in the way of doing what I can, body that’s healing and tired, zero routine and partial rhythm, smiling heart and soul ❤️ and the most important a Mother (Nana) who is going above and beyond in helping this first time momma get her feet under her.
Yesterday, I felt a big low. I felt/feel like a failure because my life’s circumstances aren’t lined up, financially I am relying on social assistance and one other source, friends have helped me out with a places to live, my car is broken, I am single with a broken heart from a previous relationship that continues to challenge my resilience and grace, I have very little going for me at this time. My amazing mother has encouraged me to heal, plan, pay attention, and for goodness sake look at all that I have accomplished and how amazing I am. As many of us know that is tough when facing the reality of the path we have chosen and the challenges that come along with it.
Then, I pause, look down, breathe in deep and slow and see this amazing little soul before me, that relies on me to be strong and soft, willing and flexible, to be his mom that he has picked to journeyed through life with. When I take this moment to become aware, tears fill my eyes, bliss fills my heart, and peace finds me and quiets the mind. I am home.
It is absolutely beautiful when we see the hardship with grace and love and find the love that lingers in all things light and heavy. .
It felt really nice to pull these cards for us this morning. It seems a lot of us have had those full moon feels the past several days. Lots of talk of intense, prophetic dreams. 🙋🏼
I woke early this morning. The time change allows me a little extra oomph to boost my productivity goals. I immediately felt this day had a new energy to it. Thank God/dess.
First came the Eight of Vessels (Cups) from the Wildwood Tarot – ‘Rebirth.’ Traditionally, this card represents the time for a change – a fresh start – a scrubbing clean – a blank canvas. Big changes, big moves, acting on your desire for something different, and getting away from the place you’ve been. We can look at the past, attain new wisdom, and look forward to a time of renewal. Your trials have made you stronger.
The Wildwood interpretation is especially beautiful for so many reasons. I love that we ourselves are invited to *become* the Eighth Vessel. And this: “Once you accept that all the blessings and gifts of life can be yours or, indeed, already belong to you, the fear of asking is gone.” Such an important piece to grasp along our path.
The second card is a SoulCard – left for us to interpret intuitively. I find it so synchronistic that the hands of the figure are cupped in the shape of a VESSEL and that this is clearly a spiritual figure. The Divine Heart’s Flame shining through. The Crown and Third Eye Chakras breaking open and creating a lovely halo. The blues and reds and purples.
I think this is an excellent representation of our Higher Selves. We are being born again and, in this process, are growing closer to our true natures. Each transition, each lesson, each step along the daily walk of life – each of these is meant to be. We are exactly where we are meant to be AND we will soon be somewhere new.
I chose Frankincense because it’s the most spiritual oil I know. Lately I have been slathering it all over my skin so I don’t even need to diffuse it to smell it wafting everywhere. It’s also going to get a lot of press this month because it is one of the Essential Rewards freebies. I could write a whole essay on it, but I’ve run out of space so keep your eyes open for more info elsewhere. 💦
The human body is truly remarkable. Centre 40 weeks+, left 1 day postpartum, right 1 week postpartum.
I didn’t know I could love my body more than I did during pregnancy. During my 40 weeks I felt the most sexy, the most powerful and the softest I think I ever have in my life. Now that my little wildflower is here, I see my shrinking belly and I pause to see the full image of myself in the mirror, I am even more in love with what I see. This belly grew in so many ways to accommodate my beautiful child and all his movements and growth. It made space for healings that I didn’t think I was strong enough to move through. It not only created an entirely new human, it also created an entirely new person, Me. This body is so much more to me now. I respected my body before, now I am in awe of it, even as it heals all I need to do is listen and slow down
