Ride the soft waves of the bliss body, move from that tender space of grace and intuition. Full body prayers drawn deep in the sand, led by love and soulful whispers 🌬🌅 #intuitiveflow#letyourselfbemoved
((heart ⭕️ open))
this last week i've felt my heart breaking open time and again. not in a bad way — the feeling of doing what feels so right it brings tears to your eyes and melts into your spine.
vulnerability. facing fear. regaining strength. finding joy. coming back into my body and taking it rightfully as my own. rest. finding the capacity to love — my friends as well as myself as well as the bundle of fur that sleeps with me every night. the heartache of trauma, of the school shooting, of how quick we are to sling prayers and condolences without having an open conversation about resolve. the expansive quality of how the breath creates space to feel, to truly acknowledge what is going on in the body and where.
maybe it's your hands, a tightness or constriction in the pericardium meridian. maybe it's your heart, or the space in your shoulders that supports it. no? is it your left hip around the SI joint like mine? my challenge to you is to dig deeply into what you feel on a physical level and not back away from what you find. welcome it. breathe through it. fully feel it through its release. trust that your body is worth fully feeling and healing. .

The other day I was in a tank and today I’m balancing on ice grass.😂 Day 7 #lovethebasics#dancerpose What do I love about myself? Oh goodness....Ok things I love about me: My Faith and that I live that faith in every area of my life. Through my savior I’ve been made secure in whom I was created to be. I love that I’m about to be 35, a momma of 3, and my body can still do cool tricks.😎🤸🏻♂️ I love that it doesn’t take much to entertain me. I can deep belly laugh at the silliest of things and lastly... I love my smile.😁💞

Discover the Authentic Human that resides in you. Feeling and emotional intelligence is one of the key components to inner peace. Find out what makes you a Human on Earth. Find the essence of these feelings and the words we use behind these feelings; Love, Happy, Peace, Brother, Sister etc.. These words have a Essence behind them. Peace does not mean you escape the opposite it means you MAKE PEACE with the Opposite. Please come join me in a Intimate Delightful setting where human beings can share, converse, and dive deep into ourselves. For those who do not wish to be open in such a way in front of strangers, there is always time for Private Meditations and Sessions. ( I will be holding this very soon.. Any questions or comments you can DM me and ask anything. I would actually like to know who is interested )
The universe conspires to bring people into your life who are in alignment to the evolution of your consciousness. Every exchange is either for a reason, a season or a lifetime. True magic unfolds when you both have the courage to swim in the depths of your heart and share your true self in all it's light and shadow. When you are vulnerable enough to reveal your fears and move through the dark waves that challenge your ego. When you can be completely transparent and share what triggers your past and what you are healing within yourself. By letting down the walls of our hearts and being a conscious participant in our relationships, we create a sacred space that has the ability to bloom beautiful precious love. ❤️❤️

Most of us are walking around with no clue as to what we are actually feeling (I know because this is 70% of the healing work I do with women). There is a lot of self-help rhetoric around “not all your feelings are real” or “you don’t have to believe everything you feel” or “you can control your feelings” and the problem with these concepts are most people are totally dissociated and jammed up into their heads with no real access to what they are feeling and experiencing in the first place (emotions are not feelings.)
We are triggered and lost in our thoughts, or projectile vomiting on others, or in emotional reactivity, or retracting out of fear and confusion –– and then feeling isolated, unheard, unmet, frustrated and creating the same crazy cycles over and over again.
First things first: feelings are more powerful than a thought, and knowing what we are feeling is essential to intuition, listening to our hearts, and trusting ourselves.
Feeling our feelings and acknowledging our Truth and current experiences is more healing than staying lost in our mind and thoughts.
Yes it is true that not everything we are feeling is exactly true, or the only truth, but it is your TRUTH right now — and something is being brought up and/or triggered in the present moment for a reason.
Being able to know, meet, and express our feelings is the access point to greater understanding and intimacy with ourselves, which is also how we invite others to be intimate with us, if they want to be.
Trust that expressing and acknowledging your feelings will bring the highest circumstances into your life, even if some people go, because it’s actually the most loving thing we can do for ourselves and for others. Allow people to know and meet you fully which is how we invite them into deeper connection.
None of us our perfect. There is no such thing as being human with no soft spots or wounds. You’d have to live a life of solitude or move to the mountains and stay away from relationship for that.
All love. All truth.
- APPRECIATE, DON'T IMITATE -
You know those amazing women you see doing their thing, living their purpose, and seriously owning it? The ones who have ‘made it’, who are ‘successful’ (whatever that means), who just seem to have their shit together.
Maybe it’s the woman on stage at an event, or being interviewed on your favourite podcast, or launching her book – or maybe she’s doing all three at once - and whatever it is that she’s got, it looks a whole lot like the beautiful dream you have for yourself.
And then the little voice in your head starts to pipe up. She’s whispering in your ear ‘That’s what a successful woman looks like. That’s what you need to do, who you need to be in order to be successful.’
It’s often something that we don’t even consciously realise we’re hearing. It’s like background music, but even when it’s unobtrusive it’s still colouring, informing and changing the way we view ourselves and the world. Without even realising it, damn girl you’re being triggered to the nines!
The thing is, those women you see have stepped into their own power in order to get to where they are today. They’re showing up authentically, openly and honestly and that’s where the magnetism comes from.
Being yourself, that’s your unique value proposition. No one else can show up and do you; just like you can’t show up authentically by attempting to be someone else.
Be inspired - TOTALLY! But don't let yourself feel that their light casts you into shadow.
Ask yourself this – When am I most myself? And what does that feel like?
Getting clear on what it feels like when you are most you, and then consciously embodying more of that will start to bring more of that magic magnetism your way. The Universe can’t resist authenticity. When you show up openly and honestly and just watch what happens. Xx
Day 4 and Day 5 of #sweatheartwithanopenheart I am still trying to play catch up, but I absolutely LOVE this picture. I tried my first king dancer just a few weeks ago with the help of @taylorjyoga and while I can’t do it everyday it’s been incredibly fun to chase more growth in this pose. 📸✨: by the one and only @j.mo_studio
