Searching out what your body is asking for is not selfish or foolish or too expensive or hippy voodoo or anything other than SMART!👌🏻 . One thing I have learned on my healing journey and stuck to is that I NEED to listen to my body and give it what it needs. Today it needed mental clarity and liquid sunshine, so that’s what I gave it! . Don’t let fear, doubt or uncertainty be excuses. Love your body and start the healing.
For those who watched my stories a couple eves ago, I had an impromptu moment where I admitted my days lately have been a bit off...and yes, it has been one crazy month. Here’s the thing, we all have our own “stuff,” with our own set of challenges...all very important, & definitely all worthy of support. My story—as most of you know by now—just happens to include daily chronic pain. I’ve worked very hard in my life over the years, to move through the challenges I face with a bit more self-compassion...yet I still have a lot of work to do. I will say, I have gotten pretty good at putting pain “off to the side”...in order to enjoy life. I’m alone a lot during my (M-F) days—which as I’ve mentioned—puts me in a position where I’m with my thoughts & feelings without much distraction. This can be dangerous (for me), if I am not highly aware of how I emotionally handle these physical issues. I’ve had some days lately where the inflammation in my body has elevated, therefore causing a bit more pain in my hip/leg/foot/etc. I have a fairly firm idea of why this occurs, & am better at managing these flares today, with my doc’s support (holistic D.C.). I won’t sit here & say the pain doesn’t affect me...but I do feel mentally stronger today, versus even just a year ago. However, I admitted this week—both to my trainer & my doc—that I still struggle when something new and/or different occurs. In short, while driving the other day with my dog Pearl, I had to stop incredibly fast to avoid hitting a car in front of me. It shook & scared me, but I didn’t feel whiplashed, yet I gripped Pearl so tight in order to secure her from flying. Fast forward an hour or two, & my entire left side—arm, elbow, trap, shoulder, & neck—was throbbing in pain. I spent several days nursing my muscles, trying to analyze the source of where it was coming from, until I got to my doc. Conclusion (thankfully): a major muscle pull...basically teres
Do you ever long for MORE? . Listen...I'm about as real as coaches come. And as I was driving to work this morning I found myself thinking... . Is this all there is? . My left brain immediately kicked in. "What the hell?!", it said. "MORE?! Do you KNOW what you've accomplished?! . "Ummm..YA." My right brain said with attitude. "I was there. DUH". . Ever been there? That's where I'm at right now. . And I've learned to read those signs. Usually, just when I think I can't handle whatever it is, when I'm about to just throw in the towel... . That's when the quantum leaps are ready to happen. . Wherever you are today...whatever you're involved in... . You may dislike where you live... . Dislike where you work... . Long for connection... . Long for DISconnection... . Hold on. I'm not being cliche. I'm saying, from my heart... . Your best days are ahead. If you give up, someone...somewhere...will not be able to experience the magic that is YOU. . The world needs you and me. Desperately. And the world needs our gifts and our light. . Which is why... . I'm manifesting myself on the other side of where I am. . It absolutely works. Quick, picture in your head what you want/need/desire to take the next step, or get to the next level. . Now- - how would you FEEL if you were already there? . Think about it. Really feel it. Hold that feeling for at least 17 seconds. Set a timer if you have to. And repeat intermittently during the day, 2 or 3 times. . You are well on your way to manifesting life change. It's just. That. Easy. . I love you! . Your life. Your heart. Your canvas. ❤️🎨🔥 . #womeninspiringwomen#womenempoweringwomen#rightbrain#wildandfree#creativecoach#spiritualcoach#spiritjunkie#spirituality#selflove#authentictruth#intuition#intuitivepainting#fulltime#creativelifehappylife#madeformore#art#artist#paintingmeditation#mycreativetribe#mycreativecommunity#borntocreate#gratitude#healingjourney#bigmagic#calledtobecreative#dowhatyoulove
Rose Quartz was my best friend when dealing with the dealing with the loss of my father that occurred 18 years ago. I really experienced the pain of a broken heart on a physical, emotional, mental and spiritual level. I realized that a broken heart was not just a saying but a true for fact thing that happened. When I was clear enough to begin healing myself after a long bout of darkness and deep grieving, rose quartz found it’s way into my life. It helped to infuse my soul with its soft pink energy. It gave me the strength to pick up the pieces of my heart to put them back together. The literal physical pain I experienced in my chest began to dissipate. I no longer felt closed off My heart began to blossom again, and helped me to become receptive to the possibility of love, that I didn’t think I would be able to experience due to the deep pain. I would carry rose quartz in my pocket, sometimes just hold and look at it or even fall asleep with it. I was just a beginner with crystals back then I might have had one book on them at the time I still recommend this crystal and give /suggest them to anyone in need of deep heart/soul/mind / emotional healing to help support them in their journey 💗 Piece in photo called out to me to share with my community. Available in the shop if you connect to it for your personal collection. 🌺
Hey everyone! I’m swinging by to give everyone a quick update on my absence from Instagram✨ • I was today years old when I was diagnosed with anxiety and depression🥺 The past couple months have been challenging for me and although I meditate everyday it clearly hasn’t helped enough. The fear of being put on medication is adding to it because I hear and have seen people become dependent on their meds. I’ve made the conscious decision to follow through believing in myself and knowing this is a TEMPORARY issue that I will overcome💪🏼 It is important that I share this because for months I was afraid to seek help and mental health is something we shouldn’t ignore. My journey begins here, opening up, shining my light, sharing my journey. • I’m beyond blessed and grateful for the support y’all always show. Thank you for supporting my little business🖤 I’m a person that strongly dislikes social media so at times I just choose to disappear forgetting that THIS PAGE has Been a great platform for energy exchange and sharing my light✨ I promise to share more and be more active🙏🏼 #healingvibrations#healingcrystals#mentalhealthawareness #noweaponformedagainstmeshallprosper #benice#etsycrystals#crystalbeads#calcite#energyhealing#healingjourney#loveandlight#goodvibes
This was my home 23 years ago when I was only 12 years old. The window on the far right was my bedroom window. No one knew what kind of monsters lived there, but I did. When I see this house I smell the stench of paint thinner on my fathers breath. I hear the screams of rage and feel unprotected and afraid. Yet still I am reminded of my brave spirit as I stared up at the ceiling after he left room. I thought to myself, “I was made for so much more than this.” I felt a power and a will within me to survive and look for higher ground. Days later, I told my school counselor what was happening and was put into child protective custody. I unintentionally pass by this house on my daily route. I try not look. But today I realized my focus is wrong. This house could be a reminder of a living hell within those concealed walls or it could be a reminder of my bravery and resilience. It could be a reminder of how far I’ve come and what I’m free of. More recently I’ve let people belittle me or treat me less than human. This is a reminder to me that I am not that little girl anymore that took it for too long. I stood up then and showed up for myself and I can show up for myself now too. I am no longer a victim. . . It is my prayer today that if you feel like you are a victim to abuse by others that you will have the courage to stand up for yourself. I believe you have all the strength and power within you already to own your story and say, “No more!” You deserve to be treated wholly and respectfully. . . #formerfosteryouth#childprotectiveservices#childabuse#childhoodmemories#childhoodtrauma#healingjourney#fostertoadopt#victimmentality#nolongeravictim#sexualabuse#metoo#givemehope#hope#fosterkid#fosteryouthvoices#fosteryouth#madeformore#overcoming#overcomingodds#adversity#paintthinner#drugaddiction#defendinnocence#standup#showupforyourself#higherground#perspective
I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately. As you know, our gut is comprised of this vast microbiome. How diverse the trillions of gut bacteria are is a pretty good indicator of how healthy our gut is and thus how healthy we are. So! How do we know what our microbiome is like? Is there testing for that? Yes! I’ve been wanting to do testing like this for a while and now is the perfect time. • Enter @myviome and their awesome 50% off sale. Also a HUGE thank you to @karnk06 for letting me know about the sale! You can now get a gut microbiome test for only $200. No health practitioner order needed. You can do it from the comfort of your own home. • I just ordered this test and can’t wait to find out what it says. They give you a full report on EVERYTHING that’s in your gut. The specific testing is able to tell what things your body needs specifically. AND which things you should avoid. No. More. Guesswork. • If you’ve hit a plateau in your healing, have had some setbacks, don’t know what to do, or are just curious, now is a great time to order this test. If you want to do it with me, you can order yours at https://www.viome.com • Note: This post is not sponsored in any way. I do not make any commission off of this testing. I just think it’s amazing and is the next step in my healing journey so I want to share and hope it can help you too! I’d love to support each other in this healing journey. • Feel free to message me or check out their website if you have any questions ❤️ . . . #guthealth#microbiome#microbiota#gutflora#microbiomesupport#foodsensitivitytest#foodsensitivity#aip#aiplifestyle#autoimmuneprotocol#autoimmunewarrior#eatgoodfeelgood#healthiswealth#healingjourney#wellness#wellnesswednesday#wellnessjourney#roadtorecovery#inflammatoryboweldisease#chronicillness

“I just want everyone to like me” “I don’t want to disturb the peace” ⠀⠀ These were the thoughts that used to run my life. I was terrified of speaking out or ruffling any feathers because I was a chronic people pleaser. I prided myself on always wanting to keep the peace. ⠀⠀ Little did I know how much those thought and behaviors kept me from my own peace. ⠀⠀ People pleasing isn’t something we learn overnight. We are taught from a very early age that in order to be approved of, loved, accepted, safe, belong... that we need to make others happy. This is something our inner child learned and internalized and unless we have the awareness around it, it will continue our whole life. So what do you do when you realize you put other people’s’ happiness over your own? 👉🏻well that was step one... awareness ✅ 👉🏻then you get curious about the behaviors, asking yourself some questions without judgement ❓how did I feel I received love as a child? ❓who did I crave love from the most? ❓what would the highest version of myself do? ⠀⠀ Remember we cannot shift any part of ourselves we are at war with. 👉🏻we love our inner child, talk to her, tell her it’s okay she did not know any better 👉🏻remind her she is safe and loved as she is, remind her she does not have to earn her love or safety 👉🏻remind her she is innately worthy and a being of light and love 👉🏻we get into a relationship with the ‘people pleaser’ protector and when it pops up we notice it and nurture our inner child. ⠀⠀ ✨she really needs love from her evolved woman! ⠀⠀ So the next time you catch yourself putting others’ happiness before your own, go through these steps and let me know how it goes for you. If you’re a people pleaser or a recovering people pleaser give me a 🙋🏻♀️in the comments. ⠀⠀ #foodfreedom#selflove#bodyacceptance#empoweringwomen#eatingdisorderrecovery#communityovercompetition
Yesterday marked 15 years since my dad passed away. It’s a moment in our lives that still doesn’t feel real. I think about that day and I know there are things about it I’ll never forget but also moments I’ll never remember, because some of what happened was similar to an out of body experience. Honestly, it feels like I am tied to all the people in and out of my life that day in a recurring bad dream. _ There are good days, even great days, now but there is always this pervasive moody, foggy sense of sadness that underlies them. “Today was a great day,” I will think. And then quietly remember that I am not able to tell my father about it. An avalanche of sorrow follows. _ I’ve spent 15 years on a mission to heal. Roscoe was a big part of that healing process, so when we lost him last year, I was devastated. _ Yesterday, I marked this sad milestone by hugging Cooper, Naughty, and Sawyer and then spent the day with people I really like and made sure to tell everyone how grateful I am of them. I woke up and remembered that our time on earth is just sooo short. So today, I’m going to do the same with the online community that lifts us up here, which is to say thank you to all of you who follow our adventures. We are grateful for the engagement and we want you to know you have played an important role in our healing process. Sharing here was hard at first - when something terrible and traumatic happens, I think it’s the first instinct of many to withdraw from everyone and everything. I can tell you that I did exactly that - and as a result, I missed my best friend’s wedding, and other opportunities to celebrate the milestones of all the humans in my life I love. I quit my job and just removed myself from the world. _ When I finally emerged, it was because of Roscoe. I adopted him just 2 months after losing my father and he helped me find my way back. So I want to commemorate the 15 years we have been without my father by
CALORIES 🧐 Truth be told, I used to lay in bed at night adding up the calories for the foods I ate that day over and over to make sure I got the numbers right, as well as planning out what foods I would eat the next day. Food took up WAY to much of my mental space. One of the many things that helped heal this disordered relationship with food was going raw vegan. Through going raw I shifted from foods with labels, suggested serving sizes, & caloric information. I started eating unpackaged foods straight from momma earth. This made it easier for me to get out of my head and listen to my body. We are born with profound intuitive eating skills. Through my years as a young women in the US with unrealistic expectations put on to me by media, and being surrounded by diet culture, I lost touch with this skill. A raw vegan lifestyle re-taught me how to eat intuitively. It helped me put aside the "diet-jargon" and focus on exactly what my body wants. I’m happy to say that I rarely think about food these days. To me, this is a true sign of healing. I have mental space and clarity to focus on my passions, my work, goals I have for my life, reading the bible, praying, supporting friends/family, making jokes (the list goes on) without the near-constant distraction of food. I simply eat when I want to and don’t eat or think about food when I am not hungry. Other things that helped me with this journey: Taking space from people who were constantly talking about diets. Surrounding myself with people who have a deep-rooted healthy relationship with food. Realizing there is nothing wrong with me, this is a silent international epidemic. Taking 3 deep breaths before each meal. Eating when I am hungry regardless of whether the people around me are eating. Truly believing that my body is intelligent and knows just what it needs, without any “ifs” “ands” or “buts”. Loving my body unconditionally. Praying before each meal in
✨Do you, sister. You were created to do one thing, and that’s be yourself. And yourself, your success, your life will not look like anyone else’s. Try not to find your life’s meaning in these squares, in the number of likes or followers or the perfection of your photos. Try not to find meaning in how many zeros or commas there are in your bank account balance. Try not to find meaning in whether you’re married, have kids, have a a successful business, or your name on a billboard. It’s very likely that the people who have what you want wish they had what you had. Everyone has their own story just like they have their own talents and skills. ⠀⠀ My abundance doesn’t look like yours. My joy doesn’t come from the same place as yours. And that’s beautiful, right? That we are all different and can learn from each other? We won’t change the world by being the same, our lives won’t have meaning by comparing our stories and criticizing ourselves. Our lives will have meaning by living them well. By choosing love and compassion over comparison and competition. ⠀⠀ I am blessed to have spent my days this week with women who get it, who get me, and who are hustling and doing their own thing paving paths and making things happen. I’m also blessed that I was able to spend some time by myself in the quiet and calm and not trying so hard because that’s what abundance looks like for me. See? We can all be beautiful by following our own version of joy. ⠀⠀ Be yourself. Spend time with yourself. Love yourself. Listen to yourself. It doesn’t matter what is happening around you, it matters what is happening within you.✨
Do it, if only for five minutes. 🌱🌥🌸🌞🌺🌿 Explore nature and then pause to adore something beautiful. Breathe it in and let it go free after the blending of your own beautiful soul, breathing out something even more glorious because of the intimate mingling of your beautiful, inherently good nature with nature's ceaseless goodness. . Experience boundless benevolence. Let nature breathe you in. . Feel the alchemy occur and let it heal you. Nature needs your healing too. It is a union of equals.
Looking through photos last night brought back so many memories. Tomorrow marks 8 months since I’ve seen my love, since I heard his voice say he loves me and kissed me through the phone. 8 months since I held his body next to mine and felt the strength in his shoulders and the safety of his embrace, the scruffy beard on my cheek, a sweet kiss on the forehead. And yet it feels like only yesterday. I can still see and hear him so vividly. His body mannerisms, his quirky ness, his quiet presence. I can always know what his reaction or what he would say to any given situation. I’m thankful for that now. But looking at pictures just makes my mind unable to comprehend how real this is. The permanence of it all. The permanence is the hardest part isn’t it. I would trade everything I have now and everything I had then if only I could have my sweet love again. I’d sacrifice anything for even one more day, one more hour, one more moment. And it’s not only my old life I have lost. It’s my old self. I look in the mirror and don’t know the girl looking back at me. Who am I if not Jays wife? Who am I as this young woman alone in this heartache? What sort of future can I hope for? What are my interests? What are my goals? What are my beliefs and values? Who am I? What is this new life? #girlsgriefwithoutbelief#youngandwidowed#youngwidow#youngwidows#grief#griefsupport#griefandloss#griefjourney#griefsucks#lifeafterloss#griefrecovery#griefawareness#griefshare#griefbeyondbelief#atheist#atheistwidow#atheists#humanist#journey#healingjourney#lost#whoami
#scrolltotheright Having fun looking at past products from the @holistichealthbox for inspiration for pampering the women in my upcoming group program! . The 13 women will receive a basket of goodies to support them on the path to healing their relationship with money. One at the onset of the program and another in the middle! 💁♀️ . The products will be intuitively created specifically for them, which is why we’re waiting to create the boxes until all the women have joined us! Interested in the 12-week program? DM me, we start in May.
For whoever needs to read this today. Some days are heavier than others. Some days pack a mean sucker punch. Some days you’ll feel like you’re drowning. Keep going anyway. 🚶🏼♀️ I pray you find yourself surrounded by kind humans that truly love & believe in you. I pray you’re not too proud, ashamed, embarrassed or that you haven’t totally given up to reach out to these people. ❤️ I pray you not only remember how far you’ve come, but also remain enthusiastic & hopeful for all that’s still to come. Your future is so much brighter than that dark moment that broke you. I promise, friend. 🌟 #keepgoing#thebestisyettobe#itwillbeok
الترجمه العربيه في اول تعليق I WEAR DENIM TO SUPPORT THE SEXUAL VOILENCE VICTIMS Denim Day is a local, state, national and internationally recognized day in April where people wear jeans in solidarity and support of survivors of sexual violence. We want to create an environment that is violence free. The Denim Day prevention education campaign was originally triggered by a ruling by the Italian Supreme Court where a rape conviction was overturned because the justices felt that since the victim was wearing tight jeans she must have helped her rapist remove her jeans, thereby implying consent. The following day, the women in the Italian Parliament came to work wearing jeans in solidarity with the victim. In the US, Peace Over Violence developed the Denim Day campaign in response to this case and the activism surrounding it. Since then, wearing jeans on Denim Day has become a symbol of protest against erroneous and destructive attitudes about sexual assault. In this rape prevention education campaign we ask community members, elected officials, businesses and students to make a social statement with their fashion by wearing jeans on this day as a visible means of protest against the misconceptions that surround sexual assault. Since 2013, the Colorado Coalition Against Sexual Assault (CCASA) has hosted Colorado Denim Day in order to raise awareness about sexual assault, show support for survivors, and unite communities across Colorado in taking a stand against sexual violence. Colorado Denim Day is our statewide event aligning with Denim Day events across the world on the 4th Wednesday in

Cosmic Layers Mean The Energies Came From The Universe Which Comes In The Form Of Sunlight. In Older times, whatever the structures are made, in that structures the middle part which is called the BRAHAMSTHAN, remained open, why?For the sun rays coming on the part of BRAHMA and the seven rays of the sun are the seven planets of yours and the IR (infra-red) and UV (ultra-violet) rays which are made on its left and right is of the RAHU and the KETU so when the sun rays fall on the navel because the navel is the central system. Navel means BRAHAMSTHAN. Which type of BRAHAMS (illusions) you have built, you live in that BRAHAMS (illusions). Why did it have to shoot arrows in the navel to kill RAVANA, he had ten heads and RAM was able to cut his head in the eleventh time also, but they are not ten, they are many. Head means ‘I’ when ‘I’ (ego) comes then you become a RAVANA, when “I’ comes then your enough knowledge is useless because no one was wiser than RAVANA but when that knowledge turns into ego then you become a RAVANA and to kill him, the navel is the only one medium. The navel is the KETU and the KETU is responsible for conceptions. When your conceptions are good then you became immortal, at that time you achieve MOKSHA then you are able to build the world where there are only the feelings of love, only and only that god, that navel. He was the RAVANA which is in everyone. We live that emotion every-second and also try to kill that RAVANA each-second but RAVANA is always dominating because of his ten heads. You want RAM means that you want thinking like THE RAM to kill that RAVANA, not the knowledge that’s why I am telling, don’t convert knowledge into ego. Whatever you learn, use it in the welfare for the world. Visit our YouTube channel trinityvaastu for more vastu related videos #vastu#vastutips#astrology#numerology#astrovastu#numerovastu#nlp#mind
