I didn't know what it meant to be strong, brave or courageous, until the day I walked away.
I've walked away from many things and looking back, it was always when I was so broken, defeated and lost that I allowed myself to let go. Why did I wait so long? Why did I feel so guilty for leaving? Why did I feel the need to stay?
Knowing what I know now, I am aware that my body is my compass. My body is a sign, the one I need to listen to and trust above all others. It lets me know when I need to let go, walk away, say no, say yes, and what feels right. So I listen. And I trust.
Walking away does not mean defeat, shame, guilt or surrender. It means you are committing to a path that is more aligned with your soul's true calling. It means you honour your vessel that is so sacred because it's the only one you have in THIS LIFE. It means you love yourself so fiercely above all others that when you walk upon this new path, others will love and respect you in this same way because they feel and see your vibration of love.
This week, I am walking away from what I thought would make me feel more stable, more protected and secure. In fact, it's a source of anxiety, pain, struggle, and toxicity I've been trying to walk away from for years. Today I choose to be in alignment with my body, my love for myself, and walking a path of purpose. I'll need to be strong, brave and courageous, and in fact, I am all these things already because I walked away so many times. I can do it again <3
Sending mad love and respect out to all the brave warriors walking away and stepping into their truth! What are you letting go of? .
Detachment or Vairagya applies to a normal household and working life as much and is not just limited to jungles or Himalayas. It has three parts that need to be mentioned.
Loss or failure. Lord Shiva and Lord Vishnu both teach their followers how to deal with losses in life, because losses are also reality, and will happen. Not everything one starts will meet the desired result. Students don't score as well in tests as they want, financial investments fail, friends and relations get busy when one needs them, death of course if the final and the only unavoidable truth.
Even when things don't go well, one has to keep going. If one knows how to move on, they end up doing the next big thing. Those who don't, are devastated and loose a lot of time over losses.
Vairagya or detachment teaches how not to get emotionally involved in every small thing. One has to complete each activity, deliver best possible result, but at the same time not get emotionally involved. #india#rishikesh#lordshiva#lordvishnu#caribbeangirl#puertorrican#mamaindia#death#rebirth#revivo#vairagya#growth#nonattachment#lord#intuition#thrideye#manipura#selfworth#selfgrowth#letgo#karmicties#karmiclessons#healing see you soon India 🇮🇳

I don’t know Brian personally, but he has this incredible gift of connecting with people in a way that’s direct and positive and quite magnetic. As teachers, coaches, and humans roaming the Earth, this is a perfect demonstration of how much opportunity we have to support one another, simply by making space for comfort and confidence in playing without thinking.

I had my first session with a new client today. She was a bit timid, fearful, and unsure about how much she could do.
It had been many months since she had done any form of training or exercise.
My biggest priorities were to assess and empower her, as we reintroduced healthy movement.
In teaching her CARs and demonstrating all the things she could do, I wanted to ensure that I erased as much FEAR of movement as possible.
After a bit of confidence-building, safe movement, I noticed that as I spoke she was intuitively moving, stretching in ways that felt good, without thinking - it completely made my day.
I smiled wide and told her how powerful it is to allow yourself to move without thinking. That spending at least a few minutes each day moving in whatever way her body wanted to move would be tremendously powerful for her physical and mental wellbeing.
It’s a form of play. Tuning into yourself, moving to feel good, to express yourself, to bring smiles, to catch a ball, to feel the wind against you.
Intuitive, playful movement is crazy important.
Some forms of play require greater mobility prerequisites. But we can all find SOME type of playful, expressive movement that is meaningful and appropriate for us ❤️
We can all find our movement to be a source of pride, comfort, and empowerment.
Thursday Manifestation: QUICK, what’s the first thing that comes to mind when you see this card? That’s a clue. You are meant to attract more of this to you today. BE what it is you are seeking, be an energetic match for it to find you. Call on your caring, kind, warm, generous, cheerleader-to-others spirit inside you and look for ways to use that energy to draw what it is you’re after to you!
P.S. With master manifester, fiery Jupiter in his home sign of Sagg, the master manifester Queen of Wands is inside all of us ready to be called upon now! 😘

I hope you know today, my love, that you are a vibrating golden ball of perfect light. ⠀
That your battle wounds and flaws are woven together into the most magical and inspiring story for the world to hear. ⠀
That you have nothing to be afraid of because you are infinitely protected by something bigger.⠀
Something so big and infinite, we can’t even fathom to hold onto it. ⠀
So big that YOU ARE IT. ⠀
You are swimming and breathing in love every moment. ⠀
I pray you notice that love as much as humanly possible and dwell in that love like it’s the air you breathe, the water you drink, the thoughts you think. ⠀
May you choose healing actions in as many moments as possible today. ⠀
That your dreams are filled with possibilities and you have the physical strength to take actions on those dreams every single day. ⠀
That these actions light up every fiber of your soul and that the people around you notice and feel inspired by your presence. ⠀
I pray you never feel like you have to force anything and you allow the divine guidance to shower over you like a million miracles.⠀
I hope you bathe in gold and feel how much of a queen you truly are. ⠀
The world is your playground and i pray you look at each step with your head held high and an appreciation for the fun you get to have every single day. ⠀
I pray that you let people see who you truly are, because YOU darling are the most perfect thing that’s ever been created. ⠀
You are enough just as you are. ⠀
I love you so much, beautiful. ⠀
Where are you right now? Do you have 10-15 mins to spare to lower your heart rate and stress level. Find a quiet place 🧘♀️ allow yourself to let go... feel the breaths raise your chest.. feel each cell in your body erupt with passion and rejuvenation. You are one with yourself and the universe 💫
[YOUR MIND IS A PLAYGROUND—play nice in there]
At any given moment, you probably have a few little voices in your head telling you to do something, mocking you for how you look or shaming you for something you didn’t do.
It can get a little chaotic in there, just like a playground filled with the cool kids, the bullies and the loners all fighting for status. What we often don’t realize is that those shaming, self-deprecating voices are not, and never have been, our own. These cliques in our mind telling us how to be are scripted by our parents, that authoritative 7th grade teacher we had, the airbrushed magazine covers inundating us all the time—the inputs we received before we even knew who the hell we were or what we stood for.
So today (and tomorrow and the next day...), try to replace those voices with your own. Play nice with yourself; speak kindly. It goes something like this:
- You’re doing a good job
- You did the best you could
- Know that whatever you did or didn’t do has no bearing on your right to love and joy
- You are not this mistake
- You can try again
You likely won’t believe these at first. It’s a practice. A practice in drowning out those bullying voices telling you what to do and how to be. So keep practicing at being kind to yourself. Don’t try to quiet the voices by replacing them with other people, or a new job, or a new dress, or an expensive face cream or a new course. Only you can quiet your mind’s playground drama.

How often do we find ourselves plagued by an indecision?
How many times a day, week, or month, do we find ourselves asking “Is this the right choice?”
“Is this decision coming from my highest self?”
“Is it originating from my heart? My head? My intuition?”
“Some days I know, but gahhh today I just don’t know!!”
We may get angry with ourselves or frustrated not knowing what the right choice or decision is.
I have found on this path, that many I meet, just want to do the right thing.
It is rare someone has ill intentions, and if they do, it is most likely coming from a shadow part of the self that has yet to be addressed.
Which really is just an acting out for love and attention anyways.
So I try to use compassion, always, in situations like this.
The beautiful thing with not knowing, and feeling stuck from within. Is...
WE DON’T HAVE TO KNOW.
These moments I have found recently are EXACTLY the key into my heart and intuition. I let EVERYTHING GO. I be in the confusion. Remain contained.
I pray. I let go. Stay patient. And wait.
If you are UNSURE of anything, these are the moments we seek the guidance of our Higher Power. We let it all go, and allow God to do the rest. So rather than being hard on ourselves in these times, or making rash decisions based on “a feeling,” use these moments as opportunities to embrace God.
Remain in the uncomfortably.
The stillness is now laid out for you.
Breathe, Surrender, Trust...
Ek Ong Kar Sat Nam.
Of all the loss, gain, chaos, and joy 2018 brought, strengthening my intuition sums up the year.
Living intuitively leads to a deeper connection with yourself, others, and the world around you.
There are many facets of an intuitive lifestyle, but the one I’m going to share now is movement.
Following a certain workout plan has its place, sure. But for me, years of structure regarding my body only lead to a desensitization of my ACTUAL needs. ⚠️
Tuning into your body requires quite a bit of trust— you have to consciously bypass the ego in order to connect with the soul. Ya know, let go of the reigns. 🤲
It’s not easy. It takes time. Maybe lots of tears. And that’s okay.
I just want you to know that your physical body is speaking to you. Always. And if there is a fitness goal you want to reach, cool. But I hope you never silence the voice of your own being along the way. 💞
If your physical practice is consistently taking a toll on your mental and emotional health, is it worth it?
Life is too short to spend it at war with your body. 🥳💝🧘♀️🚶♀️
I love food! Let me first say that.
But, I no longer feel out of control or this crazy connection to food.
There was times I felt like food was talking to me saying, “eat me” all the time. I couldn't shake it, it was like I HAVE TO HAVE IT now!
Recently, I have had a shift. It feels so weird and unfamiliar, but I am really digging it.
I was at a friends house and we of course, were talking about food. As I was sitting there listening to everyone get really excited about their favorite foods.
I realized I no longer have an intense draw to a particular food (well, maybe to southwest food lol). I feel more at peace, calm and relaxed around the conversation and eating of food.
It is freaking awesome. I feel like the f*cking war is over.
I decided to make peace with myself and food.
The biggest change I made was “giving myself permission.” Permission to
》Eat or not eat what I want
》Have nothing off limits
》To have fun with food
》Let go of old beliefs
Permission granted, my friend.
Allow yourself to leap into the unknown.
Say yes to new things and say yes the things that scare you.
Action cures Fear.
Feel the fear and do it anyway...
We go through life always being taught what the next step is, what the next thing is we must do; from high school to university right up until we get a job, get married and have kids.
We're domesticated to believe this is the way we must go through life. That there is no other way, but let me tell you something, Its okay to be uncertain.
These are just learned beliefs, not facts.
We can change what we believe, so allow yourself to be uncertain about things, allow it to teach and help you grow.
Allow yourself to see the beauty within uncertainty.
Ask yourself, is this what I really want? Is this what I think I want? OR is it what Ive been TOLD that I should want?
Almost 10 years ago now I decided to take the path less travelled and jumped into the unknown. I packed my bags and moved 9,000 miles away (to Hong Kong) from my friends and family, and it was scary! Arriving in a foreign country knowing no one at all but it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I ended up staying in Hong Kong for four years which then lead me to Bali for another two, again knowing no one. Along this journey I met some of the most incredible human beings, experienced new cultures, adventures and did a lot of growing; mentally, spiritually, and emotionally. It has been a huge part of sculpting the person I am today, and for that I am so grateful.
We often underestimate ourselves and the potential we have within us to do all the things we've ever wanted to do. Who says we can't have and do it all ? We most definitely
Embrace uncertainty and step into it with total surrender and faith 🙏🏼
I just got a message yesterday saying, “I love how real you are. I wish I was brave enough to put myself out there the way you do.” Newsflash: there is only ONE YOU. Like, EVER. If you’re not you, this world will NEVER know another person like you.
I hid myself for YEARS. I tried to put out into world what I thought people would approve of, or be jealous of, or would judge me the least for. But living that life SUCKED.
Its what led to me feeling so lost, broken, and alone. Once I decided I could just own my truth and show up as ME- my whole world changed!!! My life OPENED UP. .
And now I make a living out of being me and helping other women find their confidence so that they can be them too!!
I know it’s scary AF to start sharing who you REALLY are. And you WILL be judged for it. But people are judging you anyway- right now. .
There’re just judging you incorrectly because they’re judging off of who you’re trying to be, not who you are. .
Stop dimming your light because you’re worried about the opinions of those around you who are also afraid to shine.
DO YOU. If people don’t love you for it THEY ARE NOT YOUR PEOPLE.
As my girl Rachel shared on her podcast the other day.... You can be the ripest, juiciest peach in the world and there will still be someone who doesn’t like peaches- but there’ll also be a whole slew of people who love the EFF out of ‘Em!

My cosmic companion ✨
Building something from the ground up
Is never as easy or simple as it seems
It can feel clunky, disjointed, and off-center
But sometimes the only way is to learn by doing
Shedding concerns about how it will look
Or what other people might say
Lean into the flow of creativity and intuition
Let go of things needing to look “right”
Trust your vision and what you see

Tarot Card of the Day – Two of Pentacles, invitation to move with the infinite loop of experimentation, trial and error, learning as we go along
Astrology of the Day – Sun in Capricorn conjunct South Node and opposite North Node in Cancer, invitation to be curious about the relationship between hard and soft, sensitivity and rigidity, what we are taking in and what we are letting go
WALLS ARE DOORWAYS IN DISGUISE || Yesterday I wrote about compassionate boundary-setting as an alternative to wall-building, and how it takes great gentleness, #compassion, and #selfcompassion to #trust in the process and #timing of everyone’s spiritual evolution, including your own.
Later in the day, this message around walls (or, rather, not walls) and gentleness was driven home again. During an energy attunement session with a client, the spirit of play came in full force as an expansive, animating energy and it pulled in the field of infinite possibility in its wake. The flow palpably changed from one that danced to one that felt like it was hitting areas of blockage or resistance.
We cleared what we could, and as I awaited further instruction the guides surprised me with the next step. They invited my client to place flowers or some other kind of vibrant offering at each place in her energy fields where she felt stuck or clenched or closed down to the flow of infinite possibility. They explained that what feels like walls are actually doors that haven’t yet been opened, and as such are #sacredsites of future expansion on her part.
To mark them with offerings was to lay down her intention to revisit them when she was ready, and that she would know when, in what order, and at what pace those doors would be opened. The keys would be given to her in perfect timing. There was no pressure to keep releasing, opening, and shifting in the moment.
What a beautiful expression of the way of #gentleness. Thank you, radiant soul, for allowing me to hold space for you, to witness, and to share this piece of the puzzle with others so we can all learn and grow together.
