I’m just gonna say I thought I was going to die in yoga last night. 😬
I mean not really die. Like that’s quite dramatic. What I felt was unlike anything I ever felt before.
For the most part I’ve always been in pretty good physical shape. The past 4 years I’ve been in the worst physical condition ever. Hell I was in better physical condition the day after I had both of my babies. Does that say something about where I am?
After my divorce I worked non stop and eventually school was thrown into that great blend of an over busy schedule and my exercise was was gone.
I know why. Me. My choices.
I went from practicing yoga religiously and other forms of exercise to nothing. Then when time opened in my schedule I inhaled self development like air.
I know why, besides my choices of course. The Universe did for me what I initially couldn’t do for myself. I learned love. I learned to love me. I did and will always continue to do the inner work.
See before investing in myself I got an A+ in codependency, people pleasing. I put others wants and expectations before mine. I grew up thinking vanity was the all to end all. I got an F+ in the whole self-love department.
See the Universe gave me a big BITCH PLEASE you need to take care of yourself. I took my body for granted, however it was needed as a lesson for me to invest in my mind and soul. Now I appreciate my body.
My mamma would always say, “your body is a temple. Treat it well.” I had to learn to appreciate it with a clear mindset and with true love, not the ego mind.
2019 is my health. I primarily eat vegan and grew up a vegetarian, so food wise not super unhealthy. Physically is a whole new ballgame. See I hurt. I physically hurt in areas I never felt. I feel winded. So my focus is FEELING healthy. Feeling physically fit and energetic.
I share this with you because maybe you can relate. Maybe it’s not about fitness, but another area of your life.
Be present. Don’t compare to where you were. Honestly there have been times I’ve caught myself. I remind myself of my mental state back then, who I am today and where I intend to be.

It’s Tarot Tuesday... In honor of the Goddesses here, this week I’m using The Goddess Oracle Cards. .
No, they aren’t tarot cards, but I couldn’t come up with a catchy for card deck. 🤔
White Tara - Sensitivity
“You are becoming increasingly sensitive. Avoid harsh relationships, environments, situations, and chemicals.”
Be compassionate with yourself and honor your sensitivity. Your heightened awareness is a beautiful compass steering you in the right direction. .
Your inner guide sends your body signals that benefit you in so many ways. You are more aware of situations to steer clear of and to protect yourself, as well as situations to living a peaceful life. Be aware of what your inner guide, thoughts, actions and intentions. .
I’d love to hear how this card resonates with you!👇👇👇

Magical Monday Mindset✨
When you consciously focus on expanding within (mind, body, soul) that’s when everything begins to flow in your life.
Meaning you see the positive in situations. The things you were once forcing have either dwindled away and no longer resonate with you or that you are in the process of them becoming your reality or they are your reality.
Basically when you stop resisting or forcing you begin to live a life filled with ease, because you aren’t getting in your own way.
Manifesting, co-creating, your life begins with not just a dream but a feeling of excitement. When you think of it your like, “he’ll yeah”! That’s when you know you truly resonate with that dream.
To me co-creating, manifesting, is you and the Universe walking hand in hand together. The Universe guiding you and you releasing your your fears and knowing your intentions are complete with the Universe.
What are you calling in this #manifestationmonday?
Cheer on others comments and hold space for them. .

Behind are celebrations is our belief, our knowing, our determination, our action and perseverance. .
There’s also the people who love, support and encourage us to follow our dreams. .
Every Friday I encourage you, my friends, to celebrate what you feel are your “wins” or achievements.
Today I encourage you to do that and also celebrate those in your life who hold space for you and your dreams. Celebrate those who encourage you, when you are experiencing a difficult moment or season. Those who support your crazy dreams, because they are amazing and have an overflow of love for you. .
Honor and celebrate the transformations you’ve created!

Have a beautiful Friday friends!

It’s a beautiful gift to ourselves and others to speak from our highest truth, with an open heart, a clear mind and listening with compassion.
Your voice is an expression of you. .
Speaking from your highest truth you are in balance. Being conscious about speaking, knowing when to use your voice speak up for yourself and when to stay quiet and let it go.
Before speaking ask yourself: Is this true? Is this necessary? Is this kind?
Express your truth my love!

Do you hear your own voice?
You might be thinking of course I do.
But my question is do you really hear your inner voice or are you hearing the voice that’s in your feed... your “social feed”. Do you hear the voice of and are you being influenced by friends, media, social media and more?
The influx of others influence us and not always in a good way.
We are powerful beings and healthy authentic self expression is important.
I encourage you to ask yourself: - Am I listening to my inner voice, my intuition, or am I listening to my “social feed”? If your response is your social feed I encourage you to go through some self discovery. Write out how and who in your social feed is serving you and not serving you.
See we are the five people we surround ourselves with. If your friends, family, and social media are filled with negativity, well then it makes sense that you will more than likely see your life from a negative perspective.
So what if you can flip your perspective?
You can! That’s why I encourage you to start by responding to that question. You need to see where you are in your life with the social feed you currently have. You cannot create change without awareness.
Be intentional. You don’t have to drop your loved ones. You do however need to be mindful and make conscientious decisions to live the life you want.
Before making a decision ask yourself, “is this what I truly want for me”. If it is great! If it isn’t what you want and you are making your decision to make someone else happy be truthful and clear about your response.
It may not feel easy in the beginning to speak your truth, however it does get easier.
Also know that if you aren’t speaking your truth the people you surround yourself with are in love with a false version of you.
Listen to your voice (intuition)! Speak your truth!
Live your truth! .

I love how Jay Shetty speaks of or gives insight to mental health with a different lens.
Growing up I was fearful that people would learn about my trauma(s). It was shame.
During intensive therapy sessions with Julie Schwartz Gottman, I learned I’d been suffering from PTSD & I began to view things differently.
I was so anti medication. Julie looked at me so gently & asked, “If you or your children were diabetic, would you take insulin?” Me, “Of course.” Our convo was much more in depth, but what I gained from that was openness, new insight, release of shame & feeling that I don’t need to do it on my own.
There’s so much judgement from society about mental illness. I believe it’s people’s fear of the unknown.
When I was a little girl, if I fell down while roller skating & was bleeding my mamma would clean the wound, bandage & ask me if I was ok.
When the softball hit me in the face running to the base the adults there made sure I didn’t have a broken nose & had me sit out, because I might have a concussion.
When I was on the ski team & they thought I broke my femur my coach took all the necessary actions & went with me to the hospital.
The exterior trauma, since visibly seen was cared for. I was cared for.
The verbal abuse in my mother's family was not cared for.
Witnessing my mom being physically, mentally & emotionally abused, that trauma was not cared for.
I didn’t tell anyone about my sexual abuse until I was a teen. I lived in fear. The shame, oh the shame. The fear of telling anyone. The mental anguish I went through. I created & was living in my own prison. That trauma was not cared for.
The abuse in my stepfathers house & how I saw him mistreat my mom made me think there was not a god & that I never wanted to be married. That trauma was not cared for.
I’ve been quite open about trauma in my childhood in various posts. These are a few I’ve spoken about before. As a teen I did have talk therapy. Honestly, it wasn’t until I worked with Julie Schwartz Gottman in my 20’s when I learned that I had anxiety, panic attacks, PTSD, etc. & how it was linked to my trauma.
I’m sharing this with you for you to gain insight & see that (cont.👇👇) at Seattle, Washington

It all comes back to love.
I’ve always been spiritual, but I feel my connect to spirituality really opened 23 years ago. Ironically it was at the Horst Education Center, now known as the Aveda Institute in Minneapolis.
I was 20 and attended The Aveda Institute for esthetics, with the intention of becoming the next Kevyn Aucoin.
Aveda’s products were very different then (before Estée Lauder purchased Aveda). Horst’s passion for pure products. His standards for his students. The education and detail - priceless.
Learning from daily & monthly time wheel (goals), to elemental nature and chakras, yoga, grounding, breath, aromatherapy, Ayurveda, ingredients, skin and oh so much more.
It all come back to love. His passion. His passion was everywhere at HEC.
From the products, to his art in the school, the vitamins (yes Aveda used to have vitamins), his daughters clothing, to Organica the deli.
I have a book written by Horst that I refer back to throughout the year. I’ve done this for 23 years. Every time I refer back to a topic using this book I think how blessed am I to have received this education. I have also had times where I’ve read back through the book and thought oh my god why didn’t I take advantage of the educational tools introduced to me, that I’m now using today (spiritual tools). The answer - I wasn’t ready.
Someone I know, who is a brilliant stylist and was blessed to be a student of Horst’s, shared this post and had me reminiscing about the past.
I wanted to share this with you, because Horst speaks about love in his video. Many of you know I say it all comes back to love or fear.
Yes, my teacher Gabby Bernstein says that, but she was not the first teacher I had say that. I can look through Horst’s book and see those words in there as well. I read it I just didn’t see it.
I am also grateful for the opportunity I experienced being at HEC. Horst was so powerful and insightful. I really gained so much from my education then and appreciated it at the time, however I appreciate it even more now! I will forever be grateful for the encouragement, from friends, for me to go there.

💚A beautiful way to receive love is by sharing love 💚
We can choose to hang onto those feelings from our past of hurt that harbor pain and disconnect us from living in love and leading us to opportunities.
Pain from your past is a healing process and you want to honor that.
Being vulnerable and courageous by opening your heart with compassion to yourself to explore new experiences allows you to let go of what is no longer serving you and for you to move on.
When we’re holding onto emotional pain it manifests within our body and we feel it there, or notice it within our body first.
Many times people holding to painful emotions feel it in their upper back, shoulders are tight or in their chest.
If you notice this breathing deeply and being outside in fresh air helps.
If you enjoy meditation practice the loving kindness meditation.
What am I resisting?
How is this pain holding me back from progressing?
How good will I allow myself to feel?
How good do I want to feel?
What can I see in my heart?
When we aren’t living from a place of love we are living in fear.
Love is your birthright!
Living in a place of love you grow and expand!
Love flows through you!!

I have this thing called raynaud’s. (Symptoms usually arise when cold. Numbness in the extremities, pins and needles sensation, difficulty moving the affected area, and skin turning white or blue.) This year I have been really aware of it. I physically hurt. I’m in pain daily. Sometimes I don’t realize how cold I actually am.
I had gloves on and touched someone’s face a few weeks ago and her response was, “oh, your hands are so cold they feel so good.” To me my hands were warm.
The other day my hands were hurting and I said they were cold. Someone touched me and she was like, “oh my god your hands are freezing!” She took my hands and warmed them in hers. Thoughtful of her.
This is my normal and always has been.
As a kid I never knew what it was. Heck as a kid I didn’t know any different. It was my normal.
It wasn’t until 6 1/2 years ago that I found out that my extremities going cold was not a normal thing.
I mean when I was like 13 my best friend enjoyed putting my hands on her arms or legs to cool off when she was hot during the summer, but I just thought I ran a little cooler. Cooler that is only on my hands and feet.
Today my intention was to go to church, however I hurt. My body is tight and cold from the damp rainy Seattle weather. I’ve decided I won’t be going to church today and I’m ok with that. I’d love to go, but I know caring for myself is what I need.
Instead I’ll be reading, while warming my hands and feet.
Happy Sunday! ❤️
Disconnect from technology this weekend and do something FUN that brings you joy to connect with your soul!!!!! If you live somewhere, where the weather is totally unpredictable find an indoor activity that brings you joy.
Whatever the weather is make sure you get outside at one point to connect with nature and ground yourself.
For me, even getting outside for a quick stroll changes my “mood”, energy, mindset and I feel incredible getting my endorphins going.
Have an amazing weekend!!!! xo at Seattle, Washington
How does your life look and feel with having more happiness in it?

The power is yours!
Own your happiness!!! .

I practice meditation daily and I commit to a specific meditation for 40 days, then I switch it up.
Why, you may ask.
A few reasons.
1. I can address or focus on what is surfacing in my life at that time. This allows me to connect with my feelings/emotions at a subconscious level and do the deeper work.
2. Habit. I don’t want to get caught up in the habit loop of practicing the same meditation daily, to the point that my bodies brain is just like ok here we go again.
3. There’s a long held spiritual belief with the number 40. I believe it’s true. There’s always been a break through for me somewhere around day 21.
Today was that day for me with the meditation I’ve been practicing for the past 22 days, Ego Eradicator.
Ego eradicator helps me go beyond my ego thoughts and connecting to my higher self.
I extend the thumbs up and hold the arms up at a 60-degree angle. (In yogic theory, the thumbs represent the ego.) Until today I was in physical pain holding my arms up for the full practice. (I have a medical condition that stems from my neck, into my shoulder and rotator cuff and goes down my arm into my finger tips.) I would have a short time left of my practice and feel the need to put my arms down for a short time, because of the physical pain in my shoulder.
Today I didn’t feel the need to put my arm down!
Then I realized it was day 22. I thought of course it is. In the past there have been times where I’m like, “is this really working?” I remind myself of my commitment and boom, somewhere around day 21 is when I see the change.
Don’t get me wrong I do feel different daily after meditation, but around day there is a pivotal change the I feel and see.
I’m sharing this with you, because maybe you are currently experiencing something in your life and you want immediate change. I get that. Unfortunately and fortunately we don’t typically receive that immediate change.
I say unfortunately, because sometimes the feelings we are experiencing are so painful that we want them to stop.
I say fortunately, because my friend the only way to not have the same thing resurfacing in your life is to work through (cont. in comments) at Ravenna, Seattle
A little late in the day for a post, but better late than never.
This week ladies I encourage you to see the beauty and feel gratitude in the smallest of things.
Everything is happening for you.
Today I’m grateful for a call with my close soul sisters and the indescribable support. I’m truly grateful to have them in my lives and appreciate each and every one of them and their beautiful gifts they have.
I’m grateful for the oil change in my car and knowing it’s safer having the front and back lights fixed (didn’t know they were out 😬). I’m grateful for finishing my first yoga teacher training homework. I’ve waited about 17 years to take this class, so I had a lot of gratitude while completing my homework assignment.
I have so many more things I can think of to share with you, but I don’t won’t go on.
Challenge yourself throughout the day to see the beauty and feel gratitude. You will feel so inspired throughout your day.
And those moments that get ya, when you recognize your veering down the negative Nancy highway, ask yourself what you can see gratitude in that lesson.
Before going to bed think of all of those things your grateful for.
