I love Alexander Shaia's episodes on @realrobbell
podcast and finished his book a few weeks ago. It's a complex re-envisioning of the Gospels as a four part story of the human experience rather than mismatched retellings of the same events. Lots of references to Joseph Campbell and ancient initiative rites. More books by Christian mystics, please! ✨

OPEN YOUR HEART AND MIND
Since I was a child I was so thirsty for embracing new experiences, connect with people that had different ways of being and experience that, immerse into different cultures, different ways of expression, and a constellation of arts.
When you limit yourself to what you think it is, life contracts, when you immerse to have a direct experience of what is, without apriori judgements or set picture of things, you tap into the expansiveness of the true journey of being human.
Tonight I immerse again, opening my heart wide, feeling and connecting with Mayan Elders. Every cell of my body is vibrating with joy - a primal joy of being that floods in when reaching out.
When hearts are open, we see that regardless where we are coming from, heritage, skin colour, social status, we are inherently one and deep connection settles in and a new level of joy is unlocked. For me it is like meeting and being reunited with another part of myself.
Blissed out and grateful ☀️

The greatest distance in the world 🌍 is between your heart ❤️ & mind.
Always follow your heart ❤️ always release that which your heart hides. Tell the person how you feel, the secrets you kept inside for so long.. if you don’t, you’ll be filled with regrets, the what if’s and so forth.. and if it doesn’t work out, at least you know. This way, the heart 💔 heals, and closes that chapter. And if it does work out.. you’ll understand true liberation, happiness and complete contentment all the joy in the world. The not knowing, because you didn’t speak up, is what will eat you alive!

“What would you do even if you knew that you might very well fail?” ~ Elizabeth Gilbert
We become so accustomed to our safety, particularly emotionally, it feels oppressive and it is. I had 9 years like this, then 4 doing the opposite, taking relatively huge risks; finding occasional moments of balance, mostly fluked I think.
It's different now, the fluctuations are still intense, moreso perhaps, but there's so little resistance to the experiences that they come and go more freely. I don't resist because I now know how to fail, consequently I now also know how to truly rise. You don't get one without the other, although I forget that all the time!
Our feelings guide us to the truth and I am grateful I felt scared today, it's a good barometer of the opportunity to trust myself deeper as I enjoy life evermore. 📸:@fabiofilippi
- thank you, let's go back to Ibiza!!
Happy to welcome a Polish flutist, multiinstrumentalist, and composer Tommy Harevis to the Heart & Mind: From Me to We line up.
Tommy is an initiated Mayan Tz’utujil fire and day-keeper. Inspired by native cultures, he creates highly atmospheric music using ethnic instruments from all over the world. In his musical output he already has 10 albums recorded solo and with other musicians.
Harevis, using his exotic instruments, takes the audience on a colorful journey to the limits of the imagination. Beyond time and space. From temples hidden in the jungle thickets, to the tombs covered in the sands of desert. Rhythms of tribal dances around the fire and echo of meditating monks. // join us: 7-8 of September, book via a link under profile 🌺
Confession: I am a sugar addict. No, it’s true. Like, it’s bad guys. I love the sweet stuff.
Two months ago I began a journey to quit the habit, to take control of my health. Let’s face it, we are all invincible until we hit an age where our body reminds us that it’s now or never. I am not on a quest of vanity (although feeling great in a swim suit for once in my life wouldn’t hurt...), but rather a chance to feel the joy of nourishing myself with food—the way it was intended to be consumed. It’s powerful. It’s transforming. And the result has been really great. I don’t hate healthy foods, I actually love them, but oh man that sugar.
All it took was one bite of my birthday cake...I fell fast and hard off off the wagon and it then it ran me over, just to back up and run me over again. It’s an addiction, like any other, and it was killing me. Sure, the scale didn’t move much one way or the other, I cheated for a few days and didn’t really get caught, but what if I continued that thought process? Suddenly, I’m back to the starting line. Right? You’ve been there, somewhere in life, you feel me. You have that vice that just keeps “vicing”...

“I want to be a writer,” said Young Boženka. “I dream about it every day.“ “Oh, how wonderful!” smiled Old Boženka. “How many pages did you write yesterday?“ “Yesterday I was too busy.“ “How many hours did you spend writing last week?“ “Well… I don’t know… I am waiting for the right inspiration and you are depressing me.“
“Dreaming is grand,” said Old Boženka, “but unless you begin to actually write day after day, hours upon hours what can become of your dreams except more dreams?” Young Boženka did not like this conversation. Old Boženka continued, “I am trying to help you to see whether you really, really want to write. There is a formula for dreamers such as you. Here it comes: repeated dreams in the same direction must be accompanied by repeated action in the same direction. Go on! Strive to be an active dreamer but remember that in the beginning this might not be as enjoyable as your habitual, passive dreaming. Sure, this could depress you but this can also inspire you. Oh yes, you can count on me to buy your book!“
For your hungry heart. #thistheseason
MIND & HEART TONIC
Hawthorn is the quintessential heart remedy. It shows us how to live in accordance with the heart. As a tonic it helps to reduce inflammation, strengthen the organ and circulatory system.
Specially formulated having the nervous heart in mind, and those of us suffering from "Vata nervousness". Hawthorn tincture has a building effect, it needs to be taken daily for a long period of time for results to be observed.
Rosemary can be easily overlooked when it is actually a beautiful herb that acts on the heart and mind. Its affinity for the brain and nervous system make it a great addition to this formula. Spiritually it uplifts the spirit, it helps us remember who we are, our essence thus gifting ourselves with a clear mind and a genuine heart.
Cinnamon is a highly valued herb recognized by it's warming and stimulating properties that act in the circulatory and digestive system. In Ayurveda (traditional Indian system of healing) it is described as the classic plant to help those that are cold, dry and weak.

This beautiful Reiki Infused raw stone healing cuff is made with Rainbow Moonstone and Australian Opal, my national stone, seeing as we at one stage were believed to produce the majority of the worlds opals. .
If you have stuff that is not being said, old trauma or anything you are holding back, Opals bring that up for release. Which is a good thing! ‘Better out than in Shrek always says’.
Opal is a crystal of the New Age, assisting you in adapting to Earth changes and allowing inner balance to take place. It lightens your aura so that dramatic Earth changes can be accepted and integrated without causing undue physical or emotional stress. Opals instill acceptance of anything which cannot be seen, connecting you to your Higher Self and opening you to the wisdom of ancient cultures. Because Opal is watery and translucent it works with your emotions, bringing up deep emotional states to be faced and loved free. If you are able to control your mind and focus your attention, Opal will develop this aspect of your mind. Opal can be unsettling for wearers, as it attracts to you anything you carry in your heart and mind, positive or negative! Always wear it consciously and when you carry a positive attitude with you.
Chakras: Crown, Earth Star, Frontal, Heart, Link, Soul Star, Thymus

Some pretty big decisions to make for my future. All I can think is, I can do this. I can do hard things. 🙏💕
💫 Creating memories in your Heart and Mind 💫
How often do you give yourself time to reflect on the memories you’ve made, whether they date back from childhood or just last month?
Do you call these the good old days and reminisce?
So, I want to challenge you to recreate a fun memory you once had, with your family and friends.
Maybe recreate with your children if it was your childhood memory.
💫Post your photo & tag me into it. How you are going to make a memory come alive again? 💫
You will feel so content and refreshed!
Here is one of my memories from last year almost a ago getting ready for my wedding to marry my gorgeous school friend and Husband. It was a day full of love and we had all our special friends from the world with us to celebrate, regardless of the challenges I was facing having no hair, fighting cancer & on my second chemotherapy.
Now it’s your turn... 👇🏻 what memories are in your Heart and Mind?
“Adult toys are metaphors, analogies, parables, symbols and so on, not cars,“ Old Boženka said to Young Boženka when she got a speeding ticket. Sadly, many ‘adults‘ instead of longing for a new helpful concept would prefer to shop for new shoes that they don’t even need than for a new metaphor that they could benefit from. Why do you think that is so?
