Please meet this beautiful soul, my friend Jennifer with @cannakula.
Many of you know her and have been undoubtedly graced by her presence. Jen and I met last October and within minutes (really seconds 😁) we knew would be "working" together sharing the love. It's been an amazing ride. Since, I've been blessed to experience her amazing gifts of healing and feel her angelic energy (she has wings!😇). A warrior of light, I can't thank Jen enough for connecting me with many of YOU, that they call "clients," or at the many wellness events she has devoted her abundance of energy to. Thank you for re-connecting me to me! You've kept the light ON💡many of the darker days. Thank YOU for helping ALL of US to Get HYR! Keep shining sister, LOVE and light so BRIGHT! 😎💚✌💥🔥💯🌈#gratitude #heartchakrawideopen #cannakula #angels #healing #wellness #yoga #meditation #gong #gethyr #hugyourroots #reiki #vibrations
Sibs of special needs need breaks too:🙇🏻♂️🙇🏻♀️
I could see how some people might read this and think.. 😕’wow, that’s cruel’ or ‘mean’ to leave her out. If you’ve never had a child with Intellectual disability/ASD I could see why you’d feel that way💁🏻♀️Although it might come off that way, It’s so important and necessary to give their siblings focused time as well👪. On the other hand, I’m sure many of you ‘get it’.🤗
It was hard to leave her behind, 😢especially when she saw our bags packed and was confused as to why she was the only one going to school🐥🎒... this trip was well planned and up until the last day I had my doubts... should we just take her?💆🏻♀️💖🐥
My husband said “no, this is for Dean and us.”
By the end of our trip, it was clear to me that we made the right decision.
Autumn had a blast with her aunties and uncles!🐥♥️👯♂️💁🏽♂️👨🏽🎤♥️
And we got to do so many things we’ve always wanted to do, no pressure or problems at all.
Dean went to his first Angels game!
“This is the best day ever!!!”-Dean:)
He got to go on every ride at Disneyland! Another first!
We even got some whale watching in, which was of course, my favorite part.
So many things in so little time, that’s normal for every family right?🤔
Fast paced lifestyle...one could only dream.💫
That’s the life I used to live before my chica.⚡️
-I was able to see how easy and accessible the ‘fast pass/handicap’ lines were.👍🏼
-Learning the park
-seeing other special needs children going on rides.
-feeling relief, like I think Autumn could really do this!
So, our plan is to take both kids when schools out! This, I cannot wait for.🙋🏻♀️👨👩👧👦♥️

Sweating it out! Messy hair, yoga face. The past few years I've been inconsistent about getting back to a healthy body and lifestyle. I'm very proud to say—I'm still hitting it hard four weeks in. Getting muscle definition and tone will take a while, but I'm SO loving how I feel! I have more energy, stamina, and an overall personal empowerment mindset. It always takes that epiphany to get your act together. At least for me! Although, I’m not the most flexible or graceful person, but I’m happy that I kept pushing forward even when I wanted to procrastinate. Life is an endless rollercoaster of ups and downs, but you can’t succeed if you don’t have the willpower or drive to see results. I’ve been complacent for way too long and now it’s time to shift into high gear for this leg of my spiritual journey. My goal is to to look back at the end of the year and really be grateful for the new and improved me! Hopefully that means some major rockin' abs, leaner body, and looking smexier than I did in my 20s. Maybe even pick up a few more business partnerships and sponsorships along the way! 😂🤣 For now, I start back up on the first of many private Envisioning Board/Journal, Meditation, and Spiritual Connection workshops at the end of May. Hit me up on email, DM, or Messenger if you're interested in hosting one of my events. 🙏🔮
