Remember to take some time to be with your beautiful self before going out to serve. The patriarchy would have us believe we must give and give and give to others first. Filled up women are a lot for unwoke humans to deal with. It triggers their own lack of kindness toward self. You aren’t too much, you do deserve to say what’s true, you CAN challenge the status quo with your voice. Just ask @glennondoyle . She’s leading the way and showing us what light workers can do when we speak up. ✨//#comehometoyourSelf ...

If you are anything like most divine hustlers I know you are in a constant state of seeking connection to Self through spiritual practice and self inquiry. Unbinding stuck energy through self discovery gives us a dopamine hit that feels exciting. Uplifting. An awakening! ✨✨We think it will give us that thing we’re looking for as humans-joy, emotional freedom, effortlessness and ease. ✨✨But then life happens. Someone says something that triggers us, we have a bad night of sleep, a pandemic happens. ✨✨And it is during these moments that if we remember… There is an opportunity to stay present. To invite that thing that triggers us to do what it is designed to do-to teach us how to accept what is without using it to stay stuck in a thought. It’s all a thought. Think about it. Hey! I think I might’ve just had an awakening. The same one that occurs over and over again. I am waking up to the knowing that it takes life happening for us. And that it was it’s doing for me- allowing me to wake up one thought, one moment, one trigger, one pandemic at a time. How about you? Are you having these same realizations? How is this pandemic waking you up? I’d love to hear.//✨#comehometoyourSelf ...

If our collective conscious could shift to the knowing that this virus is showing that we are not separate, we could awaken to a new world. For a woke conversation about the virus and our global connection tune into @richroll podcast with @Zachbush . ...

I inherited a story from my mother that being a good mother meant martyring myself-giving, tolerating, pushing myself to the point of exhaustion. The ultimate lie we’ve been fed by the patriarchy is to be selfless. It’s bullshit. When we are full, rested, nourished we give generously to others and that’s a fact. I believe the most loving thing we can do is to follow our dreams, take a nap instead. Go for a walk. Say NO. Now is the time to step into being YOU. Freeing yourself shows the people you love how to be free and what could be more mothering than that? Thank you @glennondoyle for inspiring me beyond measure. ✨✨if you need a handbook for finding yourself I highly recommend #untamed by Glennon Doyle. Fierce and audacious in the most freeing way. ...

A connection to Source has grown my ability to create beauty in a richer way as I’ve practiced opening my heart and quieting my mind. This allows me to be an open channel, a cooperative component with Spirit. I don’t know how to deal with all of the unexpected rapid change and when I’m connected I don’t need to know. ✨✨Maintaining my connection to Source and staying out of fear will allow me to continue to create beauty and to lead others from my heart. Let’s do this together. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. ...

✨✨✨In my exuberance to optimize the hell out of life I get carried away with analyzing and attempting to fix. Asking myself why things are a certain way, giving my mind something to do-staying busy All. The. Time. ⠀

✨✨✨As Covid unfolds and I ponder this new reality, I’m noticing a quiet calm stretching out before me. The family is quiet, the streets are quiet, my energy-quiet. I am being. Nothing to fix. ⠀

✨✨✨As I allow this slower energy to settle in, I am reflecting on the metaphor of a virus that affects the lungs of humans. Mother Earth knows the feeling of not being able to breathe, of suffocating, having a fever. She’s trying to show us- literally. She is breathing easier as factories have closed, the air is clearing, cars are parked, people are together. My children are laughing. Nothing to fix. My mind is clearing. I am washing my hands more. Calling friends. We can panic or we can breathe. Panic inflames, breathing soothes. Either are a choice. ⠀

I am grateful for this time for reflection. Feeling more inspired to take this slower tempo forward into whatever is next.

I am in the process of reclaiming my wild Self and detoxing from the conditions of the patriarchy. I’m scared. I may be unleashing a dragon. Or I may realize I’ve been expressing myself fully all along and I’m already pretty wild. Anything is possible. And I’m ready for it-whatever it is. //✨ ...

One would assume that based on my profession as an interior designer I would have created a masterpiece of a home by now. But I haven’t. And here’s why… I’ve been standing in the way of my own self with stories of why I can’t have the home of my dreams. I could have a masterpiece of a home by now but I have spent tens of thousands of dollars on personal growth workshops, retreats and professional development. Why? Because I needed to heal from a traumatic childhood and young adulthood so I don’t regret it. In fact I wouldn’t change a thing but I became an interior designer because I am a beauty maker and while I love our home and it is beautiful, I want more. And I realize I’ve been standing in my own way making up stories about how I can’t have it all. A mindset of not deserving and blaming my cautious husband has kept me stuck in just enough-ness. But not anymore! I’m allowing myself to have exactly what I want. Now that I know that it’s my own limited thinking I can do something about it. That is the joy of having spent so much time acquiring a growth mindset. My interior Self is a richly layered castle and I desire the same for my home. Now that I realize ( for the 100th time) that I’ve been standing in my own way I’m going to put some more attention on my home. First up a new sofa. //✨#comehometoyourSelf ...

This quote was shared by a friend recently and I really like it. I’ve experienced both perspectives. As I heal from codependency I find myself moving through triggers more quickly when I’m fearful about another persons emotions. I’m spending more time allowing others to have their perspective and getting back in my own lane before I get hijacked and taken down a rabbit hole of despair, spinning out stories to fortify my judgements. Daily spiritual practices like Wim Hof and journaling my gratitudes keep me in my heart and out of my messy thinking mind. We’re not in control of what others think or how they behave. So much freedom in allowing others to have their feelings without needing to fix it! Scott loves this version of me 🙂 //✨
