“All I want to do is be at Hogwarts with you, eating turkey legs in the great hall while listening to the carols of the ghosts gliding past us. Then maybe we can go to Hogsmeade to get a butterbeer.” 🍻✨
Missing SoCal a little extra today 😢
Truthfully, it was the one place in the last year or so that I didn’t feel stressed out beyond measure. And that’s a dope feeling.
In fact, I’m kind of struggling today.
Feeling entirely overwhelmed and confused.
It’s been the norm lately — which is shitty in of itself — so any advice you may have on lessening anxiety or overwhelm is appreciated ❤️
In any case, I hope you all are having an incredible weekend so far ✨
What do you have planned?
Lemme know! 👇🏼
I’ll be spending the entire day working, writing, and working on my MIT application for @equinox
, so I dare you to have as much fun as me! 🤪

Life is just so short, way to short. We’ve just got to be who we are, follow our passions and become greater than we were always improving ourselves and loving everyone along the way. Being kind, caring no matter what walks of life we are from. A smile to someone can make all the difference. Sadly not everyone will understand this and carry on with life and an ego, but for the ones that do let’s share this mindset. We all know how to get out of this life, it’s the one thing we are guaranteed. Nothing and no one lasts forever so who do we actually think we are sometimes? .
Mubz you had the biggest of hearts your soul was pure and you were taken away. You found your purpose, you were kind you didn’t have an ego, I’ll always remember our heart to hearts. I know we’ve all got to go someday I just thought I’d have you longer in my life. I thought we’d see each other’s success grow share more books we’ve read. Celebrate our successes together. You had so much more you wanted to do for others. You were always caring. Recently you wanted a kitten and I said no, for once please just focus on you. You naturally as a person just had it in you to care for someone else always. 🙏🏼 I can only be grateful for having a friend like you and I’m soo glad we spoke last when we did. You never really realise how much you’ll miss someone until they are gone. I still don’t want to believe it, but I know you’d want me to go out there and smash those goals of mine. At this moment in time I feel like pretending you’re not really gone and we’ll talk later. Like you said you’re always here and you’re only a phone call away right?🙏🏼💔

Hey Mama. How has this week been for you? ⠀
For me, this week started off great and then, with some twists and turns, turned a bit ugly. I found myself getting caught in a downward spiral of feeling overwhelmed by the things coming at me.⠀
I'm sharing this with you because what I stand for as a Calm Mama™ Coach isn't about being calm, cool and collected all the time. It's unrealistic and not something I expect of anyone, including myself. What it's really about is, learning how to get back to your centre when your head is about to explode, when you're about to lose it with your kids/partner or maybe, when work stress is consuming all your energy. ⠀
It's about how to get back to trusting yourself, listening to your inner voice and accessing your core belief that all is going to be okay and getting to that, "I've got this!" vibe, that we all ultimately want. ⠀
The struggle of modern motherhood is REAL and I go through it with you too. The reality is that most moms are right there with you. Sometimes it can feel like you're alone in this with thoughts like...how am I going to do this?...I can't handle it...am I doing enough?...I just need a break!"⠀
If you can relate, I'm here to support you. Find a link in my bio to book a call and we can talk things through so you can start calming stress in your life.⠀
Thank you for reading this (I know it's a lengthy one!). This truly comes from my heart at a time when I'm grateful to be finding my way back to my centre after a stressful week 🙏.⠀
If you're moved to do so, please share this post or tag someone you know who needs the support. We're in this together 💛. ⠀
To more support and joy in all the beauty & chaos of motherhood (and beyond)...⠀
Thank you to everyone who took time out of their day to send me bday wishes yesterday. I'm so grateful for you.
It has been a strange couple months for me, with new shadows showing themselves and deeper introspection coming to light. These talks are often kept in my private group, Rise Up Sisterhood, where I feel safe to speak up in the container I've created. But, I'm being called to share this side of me publicly, so here we are... It's been a pretty amazing few years.
I have been able to tap into who I truly am at the soul level, and my life has never felt so fulfilling. The deeper impact I'm able to create, the education I am providing - I'm seeing the shifts happening for my clients at a cellular level.
What a gift it is to know someone for who they truly are and help them see their potential, beyond their current situation. To let them know that the patterns they are experiencing can be released. That they can create a life full of passion and purpose, and do so in a way that feels aligned to their needs.
Still though, there are areas that I find myself revisiting with each upleveling I go through.
Things like feeling fear around owning all the pieces of me, and sharing them with the world.
My powerful intuition, the empath in me, the connection I have to the Universe. I have deep rooted fear of being ridiculed and cast aside. This stems from experiences I've had in this lifetime and so many lifetimes before.
Yet, sometimes I present a false sense of confidence so that the ninja (thanks Stephany) in me can stay one step ahead of what's yet to be seen. As my business grows and I'm becoming more visible, sharing my gifts with the world, stepping up to help raise the collective consciousness, I revert to old patterns and habits with how I show up.
It's the old lizard brain, trying to keep me safe. But, we don't grow within our little bubble. So, here I am, sharing a peak into who I am and stepping out.
I have to be authentic. And share. There are so many more of us witchy ones hiding in the shadows because we fear persecution. So, I'll shine my light so you can shine yours.
Thank you, thank you, thank you 🙏
If you haven’t already noticed, #ChooseLove
is my personal motto. It’s been a rough couple of days and once again I’m reminded of the importance of seeking the light and choosing love over and over again. It’s really the only answer.
✨Feeling worried, scared or anxious? Choose to give yourself extra love.
✨Questioning your next move? Make sure your decision is logical yes, but aligns with your heart and soul.
✨Feeling angry, mad, betrayed? Choose to see the other person in a loving light. It will make clarity a lot easier and help you make a decision that’s in your best interest.
✨Feeling annoyed, pissed or fed up? Choose to see the person or situation with love. We sometimes don’t know what’s going on with them or what’s happening behind the scenes. And sometimes it’s better to be a peace maker, rather than a fighter.
I could go on and on. My point is that no matter what we are facing, choosing love over fear based or angry emotions can elevate your vibe, elevate those around you, elevate the situation and hopefully lead to a better resolution. And truthfully, we never know what each day will bring. So let’s hold our loved ones close, and lift each other up whenever possible: it’s always possible. ✨
Wishing you all a love-filled Friday! 💖

I know you’re tired. I know you don’t feel like it. That’s me often🙋🏻♀️ But guess what!? Energy isn’t given, it’s made! We can do the tough things and step outside our comfort zones🙌🏻 take care of you today no matter what your excuses are! Our future selves will thank us 😉
I bet you've probably already read about the son who was saving up to get enough money to buy an hour of his fathers time.
The child valued the moments he had with his father more than he did the money.
and as we recall and share our treasured memories , we should also remember to find a balance.
A balance between being fully present at these treasured moments and capturing them. We should also always remember to be grateful for what we have.
