✨This is the progress of physical change... But I WISH I could take a picture of the mental changes I've gone through. The girl on the left ate food to self sooth and comfort. To numb emotions. For a quick dopamine release. I let anybody say or do anything. I had no boundaries. I thought this meant I was a "go with the flow" kind of person, and it was a good thing, but it really meant that I didn't know how to stand up for myself, or respect myself. The girl on the right has had a zillion, trillion setbacks, but I learned and grew from each one. I was talking to my coach about my goals, and she said ok, your nutrition is where you're going to achieve weightloss, but your workouts will be for your mental health. What?! I have always viewed workouts as a way to supplement weightloss but never really thought of it as a necessary part of my mental health. I've never pushed myself consistently past my comfort zone. What I'm learning about myself is that I'm not afraid of hard work. That if I love and believe in myself, I cannot be stopped. That I'm not willing to disrespect myself anymore to benefit others or make them feel comfortable. That I don't have to spend hours of my day in the gym, on the treadmill punishing myself for over eating, taking YEARS to see progress. I can't wait to show myself what I'm capable of. 💪😁❤🔥✨
Pay attention to the intention you are releasing into the world for it does matter. When you approach all with love you will be surprised at what will happen. The ease that things begin to flow in your life, how suddenly it seems that everything is finally on track.
Remember that the kindness you put forth in the world will always return to you. Remember to love whole heartedly, be grateful for life and find the things you love to do!!! Go forth boldly my fellow creators and courageously find creative ways to rise above in life, laughter and love!
Death. Pretty strong word when you think about it. Yesterday during a play date I received a condolence message from my sister about my grandmother (we have different grandparents before that gets confusing). .
I logged onto Facebook to see a message from my aunt apologizing for the way I had to find out that my grandmother - someone I highly revered and looked up to - had passed away peacefully in her sleep at the age of 92. .
I’m still not sure how to process it. My last grandparent died 16 years ago- so it’s been quite some time since I have lost someone really special to me. .
I used to view death as this end. This final, harsh reality. But the older I get I view it as the ultimate reward. You see, I believe when you’ve completed what you’re meant to here on earth, you pass on. And my grandmother completed a lot of things. Born of the generation who saw WWII - she loved her family more than anything. She lived to serve people with food, hospitality, love. She was a very devote Catholic and served her church and community for many many years. She truly was a strong and remarkable woman. .
She lost the love of her life 26 years ago and never thought to remarry or start again. Being away from my family is hard in a sense. I’d like to be there for that community. I’d like to just jump on a plane and be there. There’s some other factors at play and I don’t feel like this is the time or place to make a trip home. And I truly believe she would have understood that as much as I want to be there. .
A friend reminded me I don’t need a funeral or a memorial to say my farewells or to receive closure. Intention is everything. I can gather pictures of her, write in a journal, spend some time in solitude and share about her to people I’m close with. .
Her dementia had gotten so bad it was hard to keep calling. She didn’t remember much of the present and loved regaining tales of her early years in her marriage. I loved her with a passion. I respected her. And I looked up to her. Most of all I want to convey my gratitude. .
Thank you for your selflessness. Thank you for your hospitality. Thank you for loving your family so fiercely & always understanding.
So many dreams will never come to life because of fear preventing this.
Many know about the power of visualisation and the law of attraction, but few realise how strong their inner resistance to exactly these desires is.
Consciousness and subconsciousness each have a life of their own if you haven't learned how to access one at a time and to then make them dance in harmony.
🎈↠ When was the last time you did something that served absolutely no purpose except to light you up inside?
In a former life, I was a nanny. For 12 years I raised other people’s children and I consider those years spent to be a great privilege.
I remember quitting my desk job making spreadsheets to take my first full-time nanny gig. I vividly recall breaking the news to my mother in a plastic diner booth, as her face fell reminding me how much my college degree cost her.
And I also remember thinking, I’m getting paid to enjoy picnics in the park, and take walks, and make soup, and build snowmen, and color pictures, and sing lullabies and take naps. I’m getting paid to PLAY and NAP. I’m basically living the dream.
At some point complex chronic illness took over my life and I just couldn’t keep up with those kids anymore. So, now that I’m learning to function in my new normal way, I cherish every moment I‘m capable of play.
There’s a reason I chose to surround myself with children, I see them in a way most do not. I feel their energy, their authenticity, and I revel in their unapologetic emotional range. I feel the most like myself with children.
Have you ever seen a small child say no to something because they were worried about how it would look? Kids don’t give a fuck. And neither should you. Do what lights you up. And don’t forget to play.
I healed my daughter's @jade.vibes headache with my magnetic meditation magnets. She was skeptical at first, but my son and I were testing out the varies techniques in this book by @ilchilee Magnetic Meditation. I have used them for concentration and deepening my meditative practice, but we never tried healing until about a few weeks back when she had a pounding headache. Which, at the time was uncommon for her, but we found that she started suffering from allergies, and pills are a last option, even for my teenager. Honestly, it's the new environment and pollution in the city. That's another story.
I wanted to share this and open up dialogue for other's to try magnetic energy medicine for healing. We are energy, we have a frequency that needs to be regulated and often our body and our cells do not receive adequate oxygen due to our environment. Then our body responds. E.g. headaches. Always listen to your body. Try this non-invasive way to balance your body and mind, either through meditation or healing techniques in this book. You can purchase the package on Amazon. You receive a book, and a pouch with three magnets as demonstrated in the video. Also, follow the author on Youtube if you interested in meditation for balance and concentration. Good Luck my fellow humans 🌿🧠🔋 #meditation #magneticmeditation #healingenergy #alternativemedicine #complementaryalternativemedicine #energyhealing #earthheals #body #health #wellness #magneticmeditation #universaltruths #conscioushealing #instagood #instadaily #communityhealth #nurture #nature

Our body is a living crystal.✨ When I first started my studies in spiritual nutrition, this idea spoke to me, loud and clear. We are vibrational beings living in a physical world, where our thoughts become our reality.🌞 -
Years ago when I started my journey, I focused a lot on cleaning out the 😣 emotional energies that did not belong to me. So many beliefs and stories that clouded me from being who I really am. I gave myself permission to cry😿, to forgive🙏, and to love myself enough to take care of myself first.🌹 -
That was when I 👁 looked at myself in the mirror and finally saw clearly that my body was crying out for help. Our power to manifest is directly related to the power of our crystal body💪. No matter how much foreign energy we clean out, our body will always remind us that the pipes need to be cleared, the floor needs to be mopped...basically all PHYSICAL gunk needs to flushed out.🧹 -
That was when I looked to the POWER from the soil of 🌎Mother Earth. I flushed my system with juices, with raw food, with fruits and veggies that gave my crystal body the clarity and strength it needs to create, manifest, and FEEL ALIVE. ✨🥭🍎🍇🍉💫 -
This is still a work in progress for me, but being in 🌺 Maui this past week was the perfect way to celebrate life with my Superbody. Just like any crystal, we can power it up by taking our body out to the ocean waves🌊, or under the waterfalls, or rest them in beds of running streams, or lay on the 🐚 sandy beach under the moonlight and stars.🌛 -
It feels SO good to be clear, clean, alive, and well. 🌺✨🙏

By accepting others as they are, we give them the space to feel good about themselves, and to more easily find their own way. When there isn’t acceptance, our actions or words usually reinforce a sense of guilt or resentment in the other, forcing them to change for not accepting who they are, which can reinforce their own self-rejection and non-acceptance, taking them further away from the will to change and grow. We can still make constructive suggestions, but once they become repetitive, they’re not adding value, but simply adding guilt.
Acceptance doesn’t invalidate growth. Acceptance is what gently creates the space for true healing and growth, because it opens space for self-love and self-acceptance, which enhances our will to make positive changes. When we focus on what’s wrong, either in ourselves or others, we create guilt and shame, which has the power to paralyze us, instead of supporting a change.
With acceptance, we let self-rejection, resistance and hatred to subside, we open space for self-love which empowers us to change from a place of acceptance and courage, instead of rejection and despair.
When we give our unconditional love and acceptance, to others and to ourselves, we are creating the support and foundation needed for transformations to occur. ❤️
This is a green smoothie bowl that is made to ☠️ KILL STREP and HEAL ACNE 🙋🏻♀️. -
I have struggled with acne for almost all of my life. I remember when puberty hit, my immune system went haywired😣, leading my forehead to breakout in the most epic bumps I have ever experienced. -
Even as an adult, I would have breakouts on my skin. On my 🙈 face, on my back, on my neck and chest. I see so many of us suffer from this, and we because we see others having pimples, we somehow have convinced ourselves that it’s OK. -
Well, it is 🚫 NOT OK. We shouldn’t have to wake up wondering which foundation we need to use today to cover up our pumps and which powder to use to soak up the grease. We can heal our skin from the INSIDE OUT. 🍌🍎🍉🍊💫✨ -
Today, I am sharing this recipe for those of us who are still struggling with acne, despite ALL of the 💚celery juice that we have been consuming every morning (celery juice works! But some of us need an army to fight off the strep bacteria causing us this acne breakout!) 💪This strep-fighting, acne-healing formula contains the strongest medicines from Mother Earth to give us glowing skin again. 🌹🎉😘 -
Here is how you make it:
3 kale leafs (stripped from stem)🥬
2 bananas 🍌
2 pitted dates
1 cup of spinach
1 avocado 🥑
1 finger-long turmeric (scrape off skin with a spoon)
1 cup of water (or less depending on your preferred consistency) -
Prep the items by taking out the pits, the seeds and the skins and then just blend! You can serve in a bowl or a jar, depending on how you want to drink this 😋 DELICIOUSLY HEALING elixir. Have this for at least a week in the morning as breakfast (or lunch) and see your skin transform! 🤪 -
Let me know👇 below if you’re going to give this recipe a try! 🎉 And as always... eat well, be well, love yourself and love your life. 🌺💗🥬🥑🦋💫
Healing Reminders📌 •Healing isn't pretty. •Healing is MORE than what you're eating. •Supplements alone will not heal you. •Take it one day at a time. •Setbacks happen. •Shift your mindset. •Be good to yourself. •Don't ever quit yourself. •Focus on YOUR healing, not everyone elses!
