. Just for now, without asking how, let yourself sink into stillness. Just for now, lay down the weight you so patiently bear upon your shoulders. Feel the earth receive you, and the infinite expanse of sky grow even wider as your awareness reaches up to meet it. Just for now, allow a wave of breath to enliven your experience. Breathe out whatever blocks you from the truth. Just for now, be boundless, free, awakened energy tingling in your hands and feet. Drink in the possibility of being who and what you really are so fully alive that when you open your eyes the world looks different, newly born and vibrant, just for now. . If I were a giant, I would let a heavy sigh, And my breath would move the gray clouds across the land, And dandelions would be free. I would lay down on empty green fields and watch the clouds leave and dandelions dance, (Have you seen anything dance better?) . I’ll lay there and I’ll feel the sun creeping on my skin from behind the clouds, and I’ll taste the heat, and I’ll drink the silence, and I’ll touch the quietness with my eyes, And then I would fall asleep sinking slowly to ground, Like a heavy stone sinking into warm mud on a summer day. Back to the earth, Back to the creator, Back to the no-thingness. . ~Danna Faulds, American poet (Just For Now) Art1: Yoonhee Ko Art2: Salvador Dali - “Dance of the Dandelion “ 🌺 Dedicated to the fine creative work of, the _ardent_alchemist 🌸 #poetry#stillness#meadow#dandelions#wishes#blow#seeds#dreams#relax#allow#dance#salvadordali#art

I have shed tears every day over the past two weeks. It comes in waves. Grief is a deep dark cave which we all are sucked into it at some point in life. How do I grow and thrive in life if I am fearful and unwilling to experience the pains of grief? I am grateful for the tears. I haven’t shed many for myself over the past six months (a sure sign of my avoidances). I’ve allowed a back flow and now I’m giving myself the priority and opportunity to surrender... to let it go... and move forward a little lighter in life with a more open heart. But it will take time. Thankfully, I have time to give right now. It can be easy to be pulled into the darkness of the process. To wallow in the muck. But that is not the purpose of my process. This is not punishment. This is not penance. This is an acknowledgment of what is there and what I’ve been avoiding. And an opportunity for surrender, growth, and expansion. I know this because, over the past ten years, I’ve been willing to go through similar emotional process over and over again. It is always worth it. I am always left with a swelling of gratitude for the experience and a richer understanding of my human experience. Movement helps. I didn’t climb much today, even though we had another amazing turnout to the TAOFit Hangout (such an amazing beautiful tribe). I just couldn’t people very much and the climbing gym is full of people. So instead I went for a swim and came home to play by myself. Even in the depths of emotional process, I seek play and flow. The slack line is a great tool right now. To find the balance of moving forward, I have to be focused on breathing from an open heart. I simply cannot find balance when I’m stuck in my head, spinning stories. I love the parallels between practicing balance on the line and moving forward with balance in life. Breathe, allow, surrender, let go, take the next step forward, and repeat. It might feel wobbly, but I’m always moving forward. Plus it’s
The #futureofwork is changing and so is the way to do work. But with all the changes whether gradual or sudden, it is easy for both #employees and #employers to lose sight of all the positives and view change in a negative light. Many times we see employers in different organizations panic at the thought of having to change the way we do work and instead of getting their “people” involved to discuss some of the issues or potential and upcoming changes, employers simply choose to “force” change on their employees not fully aware of the consequences that can arise from employee #resistance to #change. We no longer live in a society where employees are simply there to just do their work the way they are told. Your employees #matter. Get them #involved. #encourage them to speak about their concerns. #allow them to give feedback. Rely to them your reasons for any changes and help them see the difference between being forced to comply with the changes that you are trying to #impose vs.#committing to an idea that you have helped develop. Finally, #support your people through the change curve and provide them with enough time and information to get through it. Change is not easy. Your employees will appreciate your #patience, #guidance, #time and #understanding. Eo.
Surrendering to the flow of nature and the power of BEing in Love, Pleasure, Joy, Play, Connection, Expression & Purpose. These pictures are from the Convergence retreat I hosted and facilitated in Big Bear. A group of us gathered in a beautyFull cabin for a couple night of unleashing the chains that bind us and keep us small and allowing ourselves to BE, fully expressed and FREE. Free to love and touch, share and move, connect and play and unravel old patterns that no longer serve us with the loving support of others while immersed in nature. It was truly a pleasure to bring this group together, hold space for whatever wanted to unfold and witness the Magik that took place. I Am excited to be creating more in person immersive experiences and retreats in the future. If you’re interested in joining us for one in the future, comment or message me to stay updated on all the Magik. 🌎♾💜🙏🏼🌀♾🔮
an understanding that: when I slow down and listen, i can awaken to all of the answers that have been within all along. my innate knowledge, an intuitive knowing. when i drop the idea that western culture drills into every nook and cranny of our brain that we have to keep working, doing & doing & doing, running until our feet become blistered to find our worth, I embrace the slowness and stillness. for in this space I am able to gain clarity- to check in with myself, to not rely on others for validation and answers. to not scroll and scroll on social media to see how others are eating or moving their bodies as a means of validating how I am eating and moving my own body. in this space I am able to stop finding my worth through how productive I am... or through comparing myself to other people, and recognize that my worth has always been there- it just takes turning my gaze inwards to see it. when I take the time for slowness and silence, when I listen... I allow whatever comes up to come up- no judgment or frustration. i remind myself that the slowness and silence is a practice and sometimes an extremely challenging task when we’ve been conditioned to constantly be busy, to always be caught in the state of doing. Rumi says “There is a voice that doesn’t use words- listen.” a reminder for myself, over and over again- to come back to the space of not doing, and just being... silencing the thinking mind and listening so lovingly to whatever arises within me.
“Don’t interrupt your sadness. Let it flow through you like a river, cleansing and clearing a way to a new beginning.” 💦💦💦 It’s a natural human response to tell someone we care about not to be sad if we see that they’re down. No one likes to see a loved one hurting. But asking a grieving person not to be sad is like asking a tree not to lose its leaves in the fall. It is actually disrespectful and disruptive to their process. Just be there for them. Hold them. Allow them to feel and express. Sadness is a natural part of coping, healing, and growth. It isn’t wrong or bad. It isn’t inconvenient or unattractive. To be a feeling person means having the capacity to experience the full spectrum of emotions that life’s circumstances can surface. When the hardship of change and uncertainty arises, mourning is an important step in honoring what was so we can prepare ourselves for what could be. Being with whatever life throws at us isn’t always easy. But maybe it’s not supposed to be. It’s through the struggle that we are positioned to rise up better than we were before. It is through the pain that we can find peace. So feel it all. Let the emotion flow. Let the tears fall. And when you’re done, stand up ready to greet you’re new start. . . . #allowpain#letthetearsflow#bewithwhatis#feelitall#letgo#emotions#feelings#allow#tears#processing#stagesofgrief#feelfeelings#emotionalgrowth#supportyourfriends#letitbe#wallacefallsstatepark#sadness#support#bethere

That’s the operating system running the show. The mental process entertains only what’s not happening and completely misses what is. The good news is, the system can be overridden. By seeing through this faulty processing, there is automatically less interest in entertaining insanity.
With being in another transition time, I’m reminded how many times I thought I wanted something and was disappointed when it didn’t turn out the way I had wished.. only in hindsight in all those disappointments did I see the absolute perfection in the outcome. Those disappointments have always lead to something better and more in alignment with who I am. So this time around I’m trying my best to keep that perspective on the front side of change and trust the process, knowing without a doubt that the Universe is always working on my behalf for my highest good! ✨
ENJOY THE MYSTERY. 💙 Let the world unfold without always trying to figure it out. 💙 Relax. 💙 Let go. 💙 Allow. 💙 I’ve always been an over thinker. What if this? And what if that? Did me no good. About six months ago I had an Animal Card pulled for me from @adambarralet 💙 The card I got was a jellyfish and he told me to “Go with the flow”. 💙 Funny how these this happen in your life for a reason. Nothing is coincidence. 💙 Open your eyes for the signs. They truely are everywhere. 💙
Recently I have been trying to sort out some vision stuff with my eyes. I already have multiple issues going on with my eyes, so to have a new concern is entirely frustrating. I have already come to accept the limitations I have with my night blindness and limited peripheral. This new blurriness which hasn’t been identified or able to correct after 5 appointments in the last two months has been a roller coaster of hope and feeling discouraged and distraught. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Recently, a dear friend shared in circle (as she is struggling with her own health) that she has been trying to find gratitude and when she feel’s down, she stops and says four little words.. • • “Thank you. I surrender.” • • This simple sentence blew my mind because so often I try to fight my emotions by not truly allowing all of them to come forth (especially the despairing ones) or pretend that I am not bothered or freaking out about how some doctors seem to have an unsettling sense of urgency about things, derailing any calm mindfulness I was trying to bring in. • So as I have multiple appointments scheduled for when I am back in NY, I will continue to remind myself to surrender. To allow whatever is going to happen and to find comfort in the unknowing (rather than fear) as everything is by divine design. Thank you dear friend for the much needed reminder and different perspective. • In a recent meditation, one of my guides told me, “You don’t need your eyes to see.” That stopped me in my tracks. Lean in. Use your intuition. Trust yourself and the universe. • What are you having a hard time with or needing to surrender? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #surrender#visionloss#vision#trustyourintuition#allow#followyourintuition#intuition#trustyourself#trustyourjourney#trusttheprocess#trustyourgut#allow#intuitive#soulwork#lightworkers#divinelyguided#holisticmama#holisticmom#holistic#naturalmama#naturalmom#crunchymama#crunchymom
