IT IS COMPLETELY NORMAL TO FEEL OVERWHELMED, ALONE AND CONFUSED WHEN YOU BEGIN THIS DEEPER JOURNEY!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You won't see that all the time on social media. We get this idea of what healing is supposed to look like and feel like. We think we are supposed to be submissive and quiet, not angry or sad or lonely. We think we are supposed to only move forward and never backward. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You really know what you need. Your body and your spirit does. I have found it crucial to have support to help me unlock that power within myself. I highly recommend making your life more supported and even easier by seeking assistance somewhere.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you are interested in working with me I have some spots open to start the first week in May. I have two main ways of working together. Monthly in the Tarot Wheel or more intensely in my Embodied Healer 9 session program. All my pricing is collaborative. I fully believe in exchange because it affirms dignity and commitment but that doesn't mean that I cannot work accessibly. I try my best to eliminate as many barriers as possible so that you can really get support on your journey.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I have consults open and as of this typing 6 spots still open if you want to start next week! 8 spots open so far for June! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Ground yourself | Day 16

It's day 16 and I've ovulated.

I'll be honest, this cycle has been confusing and messy.

From hiking on my period to having a head cold in my usually energetic maiden phase - I've felt upside down and inside out.

Post-ovulation I expect to feel more social and outward focused.

But all I want to do today is curl up with a good book and practice yoga in our gorgeous new Airbnb.

We've descended deep into the sacred valley to a little village called Pisac.

Feeling at home with the mountains.

Hearing my spiritual side calling me to the many yoga and energetic retreat spaces around us.

Time for some soul healing.

First stop: kirtan and cacao ceremony tonight 🙏

{That Familiar Alone Feeling} There was a time in my life when it felt like
I was the *only* person who was having a hard time. I would look around at other people smiling, laughing, and enjoying their lives while I felt sadness, distress, and hopelessness. I really felt alone. I couldn’t figure out why I was having these feelings while other people weren’t. Was I broken? What was wrong inside me that was inhibiting my joy, and happiness and true connection with others?
.
.
Feeling alone in our experience is one of the worst feelings. We feel cut off, different from everyone else, and broken compared to others. It’s so easy to get stuck and isolated when we’re going through a depression or a hard phase of life. Inherent in feeling sad is the tendency for us to pull away, isolate ourselves, and hide our true feelings. This is the nature of being a part of an individualistic society that values self reliance where mental health is still a stigmatized topic. .
.
The belief that we’re the *only* going through a hard time is actually quite common. I actually didn’t have a felt experience of this until I became a therapist. I can’t tell you how much peace it has brought me to know that other people have the same thoughts and feelings as me. At times in the past, I was convinced that I was the only one suffering. But I now realize that everything we go through is part of the human experience. We have all gone through whatever you are feeling, we all experience the same emotions. We are all human
.
.
So if you are dealing with something difficult right now, maybe a loss, a depression, or are in just a difficult phase of life, remind yourself now that *you are not alone*. There is someone feeling exactly what you are feeling right now. Finding places and people whom you can share your feelings with and talk to about what you are going through is the ladder out from that dark place. Remind yourself that you are just human, and what you are feeling is normal, and is something that many of us have felt and gone through ourselves. 🧡 Please share this message with anyone who you think might need to hear it.

☀️Radical Self Care☀️ Boundaries

Boundary setting is key to preserving resources and maintaining well-being. Setting limits with friends, colleagues, family, partners, children, and even with yourself can be the ultimate in self care. And self care is not selfish. Self care allows you to be the most present and engaged in your relationships.

Compromised boundaries often feel good in the short term. Agreeing to stay late at work for the 3rd time in a week might mean that your boss is pleased with you and the conflict of saying no is avoided. Eventually, compromised boundaries almost always lead to anger and resentment. •

Ultimately, the only person who can protect your emotional, physical, material, and mental resources is you. When possible, set boundaries before emotions become heated. Tune in to your values and intuition. It’s radical! It’s self care!

Once she owned her dark, she shed her light regardless. .
.
Once she shed her light regardless, she no longer cared about how she was perceived for she had found what she was looking for all along.
.
That it was she who mattered most.
That it was she who knew.
That it was she who chose.
.
To be one in herself.
One in wholeness.
One in her truth.
.
Walking the path that only her soul could navigate. And no matter what came her way, she was radiating her light regardless.
.
Radiating her light for reasons beyond her measurement, beyond her understanding.
.
Radiating her light because that is what she came here for.
.
Her light her true essence.
.
.
~ May we all shine our unique lights as big as we can. May we send our bright lights out to all the four corners of the world. May our heart spaces be ignited by the Heavens and the Earth. Radiating out the divine light of the essence of source straight from our heart centre into the world around us, beneath us, above us, below us, before us and beyond us.
Brightening and lighting it up as we share our truth. Offering much needed healing as we do. .
.
Om Tat Sat,

I have always been a book worm 📚🐛 I’m so thankful to my mamma for instilling that in me from an early age. ☺️❤️
.
I learned to immerse myself in the things I could learn from their pages - from novels, to poems, to self-help, and spirituality 💭✨
.
Don’t get me wrong, I LOVEEEE podcasts, videos, in-person events, etc. but to me, there’s something very personal about books... 😍📚
.
I am very intentional about the books I choose to read and I my mental state when I read. I love to go through at my own pace and absorb all of the magic and wisdom within its pages.✨
.
I love the sense of trust in myself it gives me. That while I can learn a tremendous amount from others, in the end, it is my own personal thoughts + interpretation of what I’m reading that ultimately help me grow the most.💭
.
So I’m curious about you!! Are you a bookworm too?? What are your favorite books? How do you decide what you read? Any and all book recommendations are more than welcome!! xx

In a society that says, ‘Put yourself last,’ self-love & self-acceptance are almost revolutionary. —Brené Brown

RLC is a safe space to put your self-care FIRST. No matter if you’re man, woman, mom, dad, or child — we all deserve to FEEL our best & to flow internally as our Creator meant for us to. ✨

🐞 What's the answer to the question "what's the strangest gift you've ever been gifted?" well, for us it would have to be a box of lady bugs! On Friday I heard a package get dropped off, and when I brought it inside found that it was full of lady bugs - gifted to us by my mother-in-law for our garden. Did you know that lady bugs will eat the bugs that are eating your plants? They're basically nature's garden pest control. I also thought they'd just fly away, but they were quite happy to crawl all over our garden. 🐞

Andy and I wandered around in the woods and around Eastwood Farm yesterday. I begrudgingly only went because our neighbour decided to pressure wash their back-garden. I was luxuriating bra-less listening to @lizzobeeating and drinking gallons of sweet tea.Although I had to leave my delightful bubble,I’m so glad we went! #radicalselfcare

315lb rack pull. The most weight I've ever moved with my own body.

Taking care of our self is one of the core thoughts I close each episode of The Permaculture Podcast with, along with Earth care and care for each other. 
For more years than I want to count, I took care of my emotional, mental and intellectual health through good relationships with friends; meditation and religious ritual; and ongoing education; but ignored my physical health beyond an annual physical, the occasional hike, and eating okay.

Approaching 40, I decided I needed to find something I enjoyed and could do every day to pay the rent for physical fitness. I never thought it would be going to a gym to move iron over and over again, but this is it. This is the exercise I love. With it I love myself by taking care of my body and getting stronger every damn day.

Lifting weights, this one act I do for no one but myself, improves the other areas of my life as I move through each day easier; find my thoughts and emotions centered and grounded; and if I have a particularly bad day I can take any stress into the gym and leave those feelings there, drawn out of my body through sweat; an act of purification from perspiration.

As we care for our self, we become more capable of caring for the other parts of our life that matter.

What do you do for no one but your self?

315lb rack pull. The most weight I've ever moved with my own body. Taking care of our self is one of the core thoughts I close each episode of The Permaculture Podcast with, along with Earth care and care for each other. For more years than I want to count, I took care of my emotional, mental and intellectual health through good relationships with friends; meditation and religious ritual; and ongoing education; but ignored my physical health beyond an annual physical, the occasional hike, and eating okay. Approaching 40, I decided I needed to find something I enjoyed and could do every day to pay the rent for physical fitness. I never thought it would be going to a gym to move iron over and over again, but this is it. This is the exercise I love. With it I love myself by taking care of my body and getting stronger every damn day. Lifting weights, this one act I do for no one but myself, improves the other areas of my life as I move through each day easier; find my thoughts and emotions centered and grounded; and if I have a particularly bad day I can take any stress into the gym and leave those feelings there, drawn out of my body through sweat; an act of purification from perspiration. As we care for our self, we become more capable of caring for the other parts of our life that matter. What do you do for no one but your self And don't worry, I won't post a shirtless gym pic. #radicalselfcare #selfcare #rackpull #weightlifting #powerlifting #nogympics

Modern life is highly demanding on all levels of our beingness. We are continuously bombarded with information, advertising and propaganda, our attention and immediate response is constantly demanded and at the same time, the socio-economic system we live in, intentionally and continually distracts, criticizes, undermines and belittles us, repeatedly, everyday. There has never been a more important time to take ourselves into deep consideration.

Wise words from my soul sister @heyannavictoria ✨

Mental illness SUCKS. Ain’t no way to get around it. But ultimately, no therapist can do this work for you or take away this pain. When we are given the tools we have to then do something with them. That’s ultimately what I want to use this platform for: to empower to you purse the joy & liberation that awaits you in the midst of the chaos. I want to compel you to actively move towards what heals you, to motivate you with the truth that you are worthy of more, to show you that you are capable of greatness. To celebrate the healing serendipity this world has to offer all of us.

The impermanence of everything.
Realizing that living imprisoned by fear only to then die with regret over postponed dreams, is not a life I want for myself, my partner, or anybody close to my heart.
Do what satisfies you, support each other’s dreams, don’t ever stop chasing them. You can have it all, just make sure you choose what you really really want. Often it’s difficult to differentiate between what we think we should want, and what we really want. So I hope you surround yourself with people that question, and that challenge you, and I hope you’re receptive and open enough to realize that those are the best kind of people. For me, they’re the only kind of people. And that doesn’t mean that they don’t make me mad sometimes, and that I don’t get angry, because yes it is true that the truth will set you free, but often it will piss you off first. Remember that they challenge you and make you grow, because they love you, and they care, and they want you to pursue all your dreams and go out with no regrets.

Grateful to be home and continue getting this treehouse set up. This past week was amazing, so many ups and downs. Literally an emotional roller coaster (let’s be honest my past year has been an emotional rollercoaster). The week began with my mom’s memorial on Monday, where not only did I deliver the eulogy, I was a pallbearer. That was surreal. Since it was bea’s spring break I tried to keep the rest of the week fun for her with museum trips and visits with dear friends (and play dates!). So much gratitude to@sped, @waffles_and_strawberries and @mrvonblon for the support and helping me with Bea on the day of my mom’s memorial. I’m so blessed to have such great friends. Then we ended the week with an epic camping trip with friends, old and new for #plasticfreeaster. Being out in nature and recharging (and omg reading a book! @ashley_neese) was so needed after the trip to Oakland. And bea got to run free in nature with a fabulous kid crew. So grateful.

I had such a nourishing, replenishing time with my Ninunong Gamot cohort today (as I always do!!), spending the morning harvesting Sea Palm, Turkish Towel, and Bladderwrack, preparing food, and learning about seaweed medicine. Mama Ocean welcomed us wholeheartedly, as she certainly *showered* us with her enthusiasm (aka, good thing I brought extra clothes including underwear 🤣 because I was drenched within the first five minutes). .
.
.
I always feel so loved when I’m sharing time, space, food, and stories with this group of folks. Thank you @otherwaysofseeing for cultivating this type of priceless community and experience.

 #happyeaster There may only be three of us in my family but that’s no reason to not pull out the stops for a holiday meal like my extended family used to have. I feel like they’re with me in spirit. My table is set with my Mom’s crystal, both grandmothers’ China, one of my Dad’s favorite flowers and silverware from my BFF. May your holiday be as joyful, if you celebrate. #radicalselfcare #memories #honoringfamily #family #familylife #familydinner #specialoccasion #heirloom

I am taking care of myself today by showing myself compassion and self-forgiveness. I’m taking advantage of the quiet moments and silencing the harsh inner critic. What are you doing today?

Ain’t this the truth! It’s all a fine balance🙏🏽 Sometimes what goes on in the mind manifest itself in our body bc it’s all connected. Everyday I find time to find that beautiful place of gratitude....even if it’s just 5 minutes, it does wonders and changes your days perspective.

HOW DO YOU LOOK AT YOURSELF? Not how do you see yourself, but how do you LOOK at yourself? What’s in your gaze?
.
I pole dance as a hobby and spend a lot of time in front of a mirror. I have one emotional mode that I consistently project while I dance: lusty, alluring, aggressive. Huntress energy. It’s been empowering, since one of the reasons I started pole dancing was to learn how to turn my raw sexual energy into an artistic performance. But at this point I’m not dancing to seduce anyone. I’m just dancing in the mirror. And I’m constantly hunting myself.
.
When you look at yourself in the mirror, what face do you make? I’ll bet you ten dollars that your face does not relax. We all do something when we look in the mirror: We fidget, we fix, we smile or frown or sexy-glare. For as long as I can remember, every single time I look in the mirror, I adjust my face by raising my right eyebrow so that it appears more symmetrical to me. I didn’t even notice until my partner at the time asked me, “Why do you do that? That sexy, surprised face? Why do you always do that when you look in the mirror?”
.
Well, I know why. I’ve been socialized to want to appear as attractive as possible at all times. And when I dance I just turn it up to 11. It’s a hard habit to break. But recently one of my dance teachers asked the class to examine how we look at ourselves and I realized the dynamic I create. One of me says, “I’m gonna devour you.” And the other says, “Not if I eat you first.”
.
So I tried something different. I tried to look at myself with gentleness. With forgiveness. Playfulness, ease, relaxation. And my entire energy changed. I became my own co-conspirator. Like me and my mirror self were in on some inside joke together. Like instead of devouring each other, we were going to eat together.
.
Notice how you look at yourself in the mirror. What do you adjust to make more perfect? What energy do you give yourself? Who is that person to you?
.
.
Much gratitude and credit to @art.brat.comics for the illustration and to my dance teacher @agrundstrom411 for prompting me to change the way I look at myself.

When you were born you were given the most sacred seeds; the ones of life force, the ones that are the flowers of your soul, the ones that are you. 
You weren’t meant to be a pot plant on the windowsill, or a bonsai; constantly snipped for other people’s pleasure.
You have a wild forest in you, a sensory garden that can feel the world inside and out. 
Seek the fertile soil where you feel safe to grow, seek companion plants as friends who help your growth rather than attract flies and slugs to you. 
The seeds you were given have never existed before and won’t ever again. 
You are magical, you are life, you are nature. 
Let yourself be the wild medicine garden that you are.
Let your seeds of life force grow beyond the pot, let them seek out the rich nutrients of wisdom, truth and self love. 
You are the gardener of your soul and the keeper of your sacred land. 
It’s time to stop pouring round up on your heart, to ditch the bright green mono cultured lawn and over cultivated ornamentals in favour of the inner wisdom just like the wild herbs that calm, relax, stimulate, strengthen, nourish and care for your body and soul. 
Dig up the concrete, release the trapped parts of yourself you buried under there, invite the wild in and make medicine for your soul from what you grow. 
You are a witch and potion maker of your feelings, the alchemist of your life; turning dust into wild forests . ———————————————-

As I’ve been thinking a lot preparing for this Wednesday’s writing and meditation class on developing a practice, these 3 words have come up a lot.
Spaciousness, commitment and devotion. We will look deeper within ourselves to explore these ideas. Do we have space? Do we hold a space for ourselves? What are we committed to? What are we devoted to? What calls our name?

Happy Easter everyone! 😍😍 Here's a yummy diffuser blend to start off your day.

Some #selfcaresunday wisdom from our clinic owner @drjordinwiggins ⁣
⁣
"I treat a lot of busy people! ⁣
⁣
If their health is not a concern, it doesn't even rank on their to do list. They are busy working full time, raising kids, caring for parents and checking in with their girlfriends once a month. ⁣
⁣
I want to share two things with you:⁣
⁣
Firstly, your body is speaking to you! The ⁣
-fatigue in the afternoon ⁣
-lack of thought clarity ⁣
-drinking several coffees per day ⁣
-gaining weight ⁣
These are all signs that something is off (usually hormonally 😉)⁣
⁣
Secondly, we use advanced medical testing to get to the bottom of what is going on with your health (yes I know your doctor tells you that your blood work is normal) ⁣
⁣
AND we test to see health concerns coming before they happen. So we can put steps in place to prevent them! ⁣
⁣
Most diseases today a chronic and therefore modifiable with changed to diet, lifestyle and nutrient status. ⁣
⁣
Great health doesn't just happen" ⁣

Love is patient, kind, bounless, etc... 💖
This weekend (and tomorrow too!) has given us so many reasons to celebrate the ways love empowers us. We are moving and shifting quickly. 🖤 Our soul family is finding each other again. There is more support for our purpose in the world now more than ever. 💛 Thankful for love as a vehicle of change. Thankful for openness and space for love to flow. Thankful for being present at this time more than ever. 💜 Where are you spreading a little more love in your life today? 💫💫💫💫💫

As we're now deep into the spring season (and quickly approaching Beltane!) I'm feeling the call more and more to connect with earth magic and community celebration 🌸 .
For me, that includes planting seeds 🌱 getting my feet in the dirt to get suuuuper grounded 🌻 digging in the garden 🥕 and really celebrating the new life sprouting all around us.
.
The energy is building y'all 🔥 Make the most of it by getting going on that long forgotten project, finishing that painting, starting that business, and getting into a new healthy routine to keep it all going. .
(happy Easter y’all)

When you were born you were given the most sacred seeds; the ones of life force, the ones that are the flowers of your soul, the ones that are you. 
You weren’t meant to be a pot plant on the windowsill, or a bonsai; constantly snipped for other people’s pleasure.
You have a wild forest in you, a sensory garden that can feel the world inside and out. 
Seek the fertile soil where you feel safe to grow, seek companion plants as friends who help your growth rather than attract flies and slugs to you. 
The seeds you were given have never existed before and won’t ever again. 
You are magical, you are life, you are nature. 
Let yourself be the wild medicine garden that you are.
Let your seeds of life force grow beyond the pot, let them seek out the rich nutrients of wisdom, truth and self love. 
You are the gardener of your soul and the keeper of your sacred land. 
It’s time to stop pouring round up on your heart, to ditch the bright green mono cultured lawn and over cultivated ornamentals in favour of the inner wisdom just like the wild herbs that calm, relax, stimulate, strengthen, nourish and care for your body and soul. 
Dig up the concrete, release the trapped parts of yourself you buried under there, invite the wild in and make medicine for your soul from what you grow. 
You are a witch and potion maker of your feelings, the alchemist of your life; turning dust into wild forests . ———————————————-

Just dug out some of the turmeric root to enjoy, possibly just a touch early as some edges are still a little white.
.
Left plenty in the ground to regrow, plus planted a few pieces with roots still attached, so my fingers are crossed they take well. 🤞🏼
.
.
Hoping that you’ve all had a gorgeous day. I have two boys on my hands who have pretty much only eaten chocolate all day 😜.....but so be it. One day to indulge 🐰 .

💫 For women, we store much of our woundings, the disappointment, the pain and the discomfort in our womb. Our most sensitive, nurturing energy center can become a ticking time bomb for unexpressed emotion.⠀
.⠀
💫 We lock in the most vulnerable parts of who we are and cover it with stories, reasons and beliefs for why we can’t shine. Our womb holds the key to all the unprocessed emotions that keep us from truly letting go. ⠀
.⠀
💫 AND it is generational!! Locked away in this emotional vault are past traumas of your mother, grandmother and women before them. Unresolved pain and trauma carries down our ancestral line. What you’re carrying may not even be yours, except for the way it is impacting you.⠀
.⠀
💫 The only way to truly heal these generational woundings is to show up to them. To hold them, understand them and transmute the pain into power. Suppressing them just won’t work, we are no longer able to walk through life with unawareness. Our global energy just won’t allow it.⠀
.⠀
💫 So, if you’re ready, connecting with beautiful, potent, soul nourishing essential oils and daily mindset practices will begin the transformation from powerless to powerful. Applying oils over your womb can release the energy stored deep within the recess of your DNA. ⠀
.⠀
💫 If its time to crack yourself open, untangle the ancestral woundings while nourishing your whole being, then it’s time to begin a daily oil ritual. By releasing these anchors you are also ensuring the next generation won’t have YOUR baggage to carry!! ⠀
.⠀
💫 Hit the link in my BIO to order your oils or if needing some loving guidance just pop through a message. Together let’s clear those womb woundings!! ⠀

Swipe to see one of my favorite cooking tips! 
When you make deviled eggs, put the filling into a baggie, snip the tip and pipe the filling in instead of using a spoon. It’s so much less messy! PLUS, if you’re bringing deviled eggs to a get-together, it’s so much easier to transport them separately and then just fill them at the party. I made these deviled eggs last night and brought them to my mom’s house today and put them together in no time! 
Hope y’all are having a lovely Easter weekend with family and friends. 🐣

Man, life can be so hard.

The past couple of weeks I’ve been posting (and boasting 😎) beautiful Balinese vacation pix and practicing lots of self love. Important, but just a snapshot into what’s really happening in my life.

Underneath that surface, is an incredibly sad heart that’s learning to live without her partner of almost 7 years. 
And I’m learning to approach this narrative in a new way, outside of the normal, “I’m right! They’re wrong.” breakup mentality. 
Because we are both right. Both right for wanting more things within our own lives. Which is one of the reasons this why the shit is so hard. (Other hard things about breakups include: living with things whether they are objects or memories that continually remind you of the other person, dealing with ALL the feelings, or the ache of missing your best friend). But I’m so proud of the decisions I am making for myself which will make me stronger, more powerful, and more fulfilled. 
Even if... even if it means I might not end up with the partner I just lost. 
The next several months I will be working against FEAR to get to a place that is even BETTER than where I am or I’ve been. 
I felt it important to share my story, and in a way acknowledge all of those who also have a heartache so big that they don’t see it represented on the often time dimensionless world of social media. 
Remember to:
• Honor yourself • Honor what’s been lost
• TAKE room for yourself
• TAKE time to decipher what you want in your life
• And then TAKE the space to make the shit happen

BEAUTY, LISTEN.

Beauty, why do you hold your light
inside? Hidden from all in view? Do you not know the color of your skin is starlight? Your face and eyes the images of heaven?

Beauty, listen. With your heart and your ears, hear and know that this life is your gift. That the suffering of betrayal, loss, pain and fear is not your birthright but a shroud covering the alter. Your body in perfect form is everything the world has ever asked for. If you can just believe and seek and grieve the lies you’ve been feasting on.

It’s not so simple to release the demons hiding in your words. So grab ahold of another, finding solace in the beloved that lives before you. Find the first step that will bring you closer to your self and singing the song of the soul. One step. Two steps. And all will be well.
