You can’t have light without darkness, strength without weakness, love without loss, a storm without a rainbow. Everybody wants happiness, nobody wants sadness, but how would you know one without the other? 🤔 📷 : @sophiecachia_ ❤️✨🌟💫
“Find out who you are and do it on purpose.” -Dolly Parton
I was gifted this mantra recently— and it has proved to be one of the most challenging. To see this statement from a lens of empowerment... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ To know I don’t yet know. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ To fully lean into this stage of becoming. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Of “baking” as my soul medicine mama mentor calls it @catypasternak 🥧😘 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As a recovering high achiever, external validation seeker, driven entrepreneur…I can navigate the path of control and external business strategy no problem. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But choosing soul growth, surrender, and giving into what the divine wishes to express through me? Whole new world. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Asking myself questions like—well if I don’t do x, y, & z wont EVERYTHING fall apart? If I don’t plan the outcome and execute perfectly HOW will it all turn out? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Each day practicing muting these fears, and deepening in expansion so I may serve with greater impact and live in more alignment. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I trade in what I think *needs* to be-- for the trust what is coming is better. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Facing fears and the releasing control in all areas… ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🦋 Unsure of what the next level of my service looks like… How will all this energetic work transmute into tangible gifts for my clients and the collective? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ✨ Unavailable for partnership… How will this next level to me… so full, so fiercely independent, coexist in relationship with another? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🌲 Ungrounded in geographical location… Will I finally land on a sensation of home and community? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ All of the fears. All of the not knowing. All beautiful gifts of shadow. I welcome the patterns of unworthiness, codependency, and isolation as they appear. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Seeing them rise up and die off. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For as I evolve, they are no longer welcomed vibrations in this vessel. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ All I know… Is that I’m not ready yet. And that it’s perfect. I am right where I am meant to be. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My current soul path more divine than any achievement or external result could offer. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I trust in what is coming to me. And even more… I trust in what is becoming within me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ xx L 🌙
✨Life is a sequence of twists and turns, as meaningful as you choose to see them...✨ . ... Gosh Golly... I just love these gems of wisdom that come to me, after I’ve been through a ringer full of twists and turns. Bruised and battered, I come out the other way with something wise to say! 😂 . ... Maybe that’s why I love revolved poses and often gravitate to those in my practice and in the classes I teach. I think we instinctively know that we cannot reach a new place of growth and understanding unless we are worked, squeezed, wrung and shaken out to dry! And if you still iron your clothing then add that to the list! 😂 . .... On a physical level, our organs and different parts need such manipulation to function optimally. So why is it that challenging action can feel so foreign to us on an emotional level? . ... What do you think? 🧐 Tell me then go have an amazing day through all the twists and turns life throws your way today! . ... #itsaprocess #overcome #emotionalintelligence #newgrowth #lifeisajourney #mindfulness #momlife #parenting #innerwork #empath #thestruggleisreal #workhard #nopainnogain #yoga #revolvedtriangle #revolvedposes #asanas #twists #twistsandturns #trialsandtribulations #painmakesyoustronger #innerstrength #bestrong #emotionalwork #itsgoodforyou #changeisgood #neverstop #dontgiveup

Spending time catching up with some of my closest friends this weekend in Colorado. Taking full advantage of a mini getaway and looking forward to “unplugging” and being in the present. Truly is the best💙 Happy weekend everyone !
If you could give your younger self a piece of advice from the wisdom of the current self, what would it be? . For me, it is, and always will be, “JUST TRUST YOURSELF.” . Let me hear yours in comments below!
It’s a fine line balancing self-awareness & personal adaption in relationship and understanding that sometimes there’s really nothing we could ever do to please certain people because of their own patterns and projections. #innerwork #healing #betterforeachother #allone #shine #yogalife = #svadyaya / #selfawareness 🌟 #tapas / #dedication 🌟 #aparigraha / #surrender 🌟 #saprema / #supremelove 💛

Looking deeply into nature is a portal to discovery, inspiration, and expanded awareness. ✨⠀ .⠀ Allow yourself to be entranced by something natural.⠀ .⠀ You could be outdoors, indoors or looking out a window. Just make it something natural.⠀ .⠀ Look deeply at whatever has captured your interest. Breathe. Breathe into it. Breathe with it. 🧘🏻‍♀️⠀ .⠀ Ask yourself what has drawn you to look so deeply at this? See beyond the color, or shape, or sound, or movement. Go deeper. ⠀ .⠀ What stirs within you, what speaks to you, as you look so deeply? ⠀ .⠀ What are you meant to learn from this moment of contemplation? There is always something to learn. ⠀ .⠀ Share how nature is a portal for you! #natureisaportal 💚🌿⠀ ⠀ 👉Link in Profile.

As we go through life we encounter many experiences that cause us to develop a plethora of false perceptions, mental and emotional complexes, limiting belief systems and self destructive behaviours; all of which prevent us from directing our life force energy in accordance with our highest ideals. Self observation will enable us to identify where our energies are being wasted and how we can utilise them for our expansion. - The Last Mystic
Throw your hands in the air & tag someone if you agree with this quote! There have been times when I have had bad influences in my life and made not so smart decisions. 🤔 When I take the time to reflect on why I attracted those relationships and situations, I realize it was a direct reflection of what I valued about myself! A part of my work is to investigate root emotional issues that can block us from reaching our desired outcome. Emotional stress causes the mind & body to become more imbalanced, and those blocks MUST be addressed if you what a shift in your lifestyle. ✨ You can eat the healthiest diet and workout, but the mindset is a big piece of the wellness puzzle. Being forgiving to YOU is tapping into your emotions and learning from them! . 🤔 Reflect on who you are attracting in your life. Do you wish things were different? How do you value yourself? Are you being FORGIVING to yourself and your emotions? Be forgiving to yourself, be grateful for the lessons learned, know you are valuable, and choose to give yourself more self-love! 🥰

Flying is one of my childhood dreams 😍😊 When I was child I wanted to become an astronaut 🌟flying around the earth and discovering new planets 🌎 Later on in life I was climbing a tree and fell down, and since then I have a fear of heights 😔 Yesterday we took a bike ride in the mountains in Baños, and on the way we saw people flying with the zip line, my heart jumbled from my chest and my inner child was standing there staring at the river underneath it. Another part of me was scared like hell. He wanted to run away and not even come close to any high! (the vulnerable part that got hurt from falling down) And for the first time I made a decision that didn't bulldoze any of my inner children. I talked to the scared part and showed him that it's super safe and hundreds of people did it before and non got hurt. After this part felt more safe I did it. I flew for about 3 mins above the river between magnificent mountains ⛰️ I love how I did it despite all the fear, and how I'm more in touch with my inner children ☺️ Share with me what was the scariest thing you did in your life :)

dang so I guess I forgot how much I love stationary... I don't know why I didn't think to offer mailed tarot readings sooner because I had a heckin BLAST at @thepaperyglebe colour coordinating envelopes and paper and tissue paper. pink is my new favourite colour and I'm charging my decks/stationary with rose quartz and rose water.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ some folks have emailed asking about getting Year Ahead readings mailed so I figured I'd make a post about it! you can 100% get a handwritten Year Ahead reading mailed to you, but I can't offer it on a sliding scale so it would be the full 75$/$200 price (which includes the cost of shipping) and I'll be mailing them out by the 24th, which means they'll arrive in the mail after Christmas day but before NYE! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you'd like to do this, purchase a Year Ahead reading at full price, and then email me the order number and your mailing address (or the mailing address of the intended recipient if it's a gift).⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Decks pictured:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ - Prism Oracle by @iriseyris ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ - Fountain Tarot by @fountaintarot ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #mysticmail #folktarot #folkmagic #tarot #intuitive #queertarot #queertarotreadersofinstagram #tarotcommunity #divination #citywitch #tarot #tarotcards #tarotreadersofinstagram #witch #witchcraft #slowmagic #urbanwitch #witchesofinstagram #soultalk #healing #modernmystic #innerwork #selfawareness
Just finished a last 30 hour Yinyoga Immersion in Düsseldorf with strong present ladies. The gift they gave me in the end touched me deeply. The card sais: In your calmness is the power. I never would define myself as calm. But to have somehow managed to make peace with an intrinsic restlessness seems to make an impact on my teaching. And that is what I can share. To look, to see and to say with a big smile yes, that’s me right now. An ever changing evolution with a big dedication to be here. Now a holiday from groups & trainings. Get me for bodywork and Yogaclasses here and there where I repeat myself... Relax! Nothing is in control ... #relaxation #yoga #innerwork #intothequiet #viracologneyoga #grateful
This show will be the end of me 😱 I don’t do horror but the story pulled me in and now I’m hooked. Here’s to sleepless nights for the next week.
Eight of Wands - What can I do to tune into the unfolding? How can I keep pace and find that rhythm? Anxiety and tension can arise when one is out of sync energetically. We have obligations, we have to-do’s, we need action. We’re waiting impatiently, we’re unsettled by the unknown, we’ve lost faith (momentarily) in the process. Eight of Wands tells us there is swift action on its way or even happening right now. The rub is: it is momentum we cannot see. We can feel the tide turning, we can sense the rise in energy, but our outer world has not caught up to that. It feels slow, sluggish, dragging along…So when we feel one thing and see evidence to the contrary, we’re tight and uncertain. The energy IS the manifestation before the physical events. If we continue to fight it, if we continue to focus our attention on what is not here yet, it will only keep those things at bay. We need to slow down and feel for the pace, the beat, the rhythm. We must be in the quiet and feel for the stretch forward. We can tune in and sing the song again. Then nothing is unexpected, the song swells and there it all is. So, how can you slow down today and listen/feel for the rhythm? Take some time to be in the quiet. Write out your concerns and then allow your mind to be unoccupied by them. Are you ready for the New Year? Have you thought about your plans for 2019? I’m hosting a free virtual workshop the last 5 days of 2018 where I will ask the tarot to prompt us with questions for reflection and inspiration for vision.

I was going to take a picture of me meditating, but then realized how incredibly pretentious it made me look. So instead I'm posting the moment when my cat decided to jump behind the camera and bat at it. 😻 . I think Instagram is great, but damn it can quickly devolve into me obsessing over getting followers and likes and for what?! Followers and likes are so lovely, but not when they purely feed the ego (at least for me). I want to know you. Message me and introduce yourself!

Inspired by @aveline_stokart ‘s #drawthisinyourstyle #aveline40k #avelinegiveaway . . My theme for this piece is “inner power”. Rebuilding my confidence as a creator over the past year has been a slow and arduous process. It still is. But this journey has become incredibly important and I wanted this artwork to represent a strong sense of self. Hope you all enjoy and thanks to @aveline_stokart for inspiring this piece! ✨ . . . #innerpower #confidence #recovery #creativerecovery #innerwork #digitalart #angegreenart

Repost @sacredcirclecounseling • • • • • Becoming consciously aware of boundaries—that they even exist, and that there are choices about how to set them, in the moment—can be a monumental task for those with relational childhood trauma (both within the family, and/or within society in the form of oppression, erasure, marginalization). . It’s hard work. But work that is so worth it. .

Your triggers can be a GOOD thing. Seriously. Your triggers are NOT evil → they are your biggest growth edge. They’re a big neon sign pointing directly at your wounds. They’re an invitation to dive deep & unravel what’s really happening FOR YOU, & for you to get to the core of it. Being triggered is an opportunity to reflect inward and ask yourself: Why am I so reactive to this? What is really coming up for me here? What is the ROOT cause of this wound? I’m not gonna lie — working through your triggers is painful AF. It’s SO uncomfortable admitting to our wounds & uncovering all the shit that comes with it. But once you DECIDE to no longer let it have power over you, you make space for so much lightness. So much understanding, self-awareness, & self-acceptance. Opening up the wounds at the core of your triggers is an opportunity to understand yourself on a deeper level & to practice self-compassion. To move THROUGH it rather than avoid it, or lash out because of it. Shying away from your triggers doesn’t do you any good. Until you face them you will continue to be triggered. Until you unravel all the layers of stories, meanings, beliefs etc you have piled on top of that core wound, it will continue to fester & poison you. When you get to the root of it & understand what it really means, you will gain a much deeper understanding for yourself & be able to love yourself more wholly. Tapping into what is really happening deep within when you’re triggered gives you a chance to observe & change the way you react — to change the way you allow yourself to be triggered. It’s a chance to start clearing out all the BS you’ve been telling yourself & to start HEALING. So you can put the trigger to bed & no longer be affected by it. Don’t get me wrong — it won’t take being triggered once & observing it for you to move through it. This is where the REAL work happens. The deep intrinsic work that you have to do over & over again until it sticks. You have to be willing to be raw, open, honest & dive deep within yourself. Crack yourself open. Allow yourself to unravel. To fall apart, so you can put yourself back together with more love & compassion — stronger than ever.
“There is no coming to consciousness without pain. People will do anything, no matter how absurd, in order to avoid facing their own Soul.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I am a scab. A hardened layer to protect the rawness underneath. Have you ever picked a scab before the wound was healed? It scars forever. You don't know what it looks like underneath. You've never seen it. It must be soft and beautiful and clean and regular. It must be authentic. I'm just guessing. I am a scab lumped together with all kinds of material that hardened into a protective shield. It's made of anger and Health, Carelessness and Heavy bags, Withdrawal and Optimism, Denial and Hard work. You know what they say, you aren't your scab. But what if it became you? What if you were so burnt that you had to graft a new persona? And what happens when the transplant rejection only starts decades later? I am a scab And my protection is failing me. I can't slow it down, Can't rip it off, Don't know if the exposed innards will get infected before it's healed. Now, I wait.

Sovereignty are episodes to help people understand. The problem for most people is the misunderstanding of the source of your experience. Thoughts and feelings aren't personal. • You have to realize that you can watch the river of life from it's banks. Then your experience is without labels or branded with diagnosis. Look upstream rather than downstream to see that there is nothing to fix. • Can you do that? Observe yourself without judgement? It's the highest form of human intelligence. • With sovereignty I walked this path to show people that no matter what happens inside, you are not the content of the river. You are what remains when all has passed through: a free spirit. • Link in bio. • #spiritualpath #inspiredwomen #raiseyourfrequency #consciousness #findingyourfearless #meditationiskey #trueself #growthmindset #mastery #integrity #beingalive #womenwholead #abundancemindset #freedom #stillness #spiritualgrowth #highvibration #shemeansbusiness #truenorth #higherself #quietmind #innerwork #simpleandstill #peacewithin #meditation #truth #energy #strenght #mindbodyspirit #seekthesimplicity
{ALONE NOT LONELY} // “Loneliness is a sign you are in desperate need of yourself”. @rupikaur_ • As the cultural commentary goes, we are more connected- yet more isolated- than ever before...connected to everything and disconnected from ourselves. Researchers warn that rates of reported loneliness are rising to crisis levels. • As in many of the circumstances in which we find ourselves suffering, our knee-jerk reaction is to look outwardly for the solution: a new job, new partner, new city, different habits, updated wardrobe, a better therapist. “When ______ changes, *then* I’ll be happy”. When we are lonely, we naturally turn externally for help; we want *other* people. And yes, that’s a healthy impulse- evolutionarily, loneliness encourages us to seek out support and connections, which we rely on for survival. But, like many of the things we look to in an attempt to dull our pain, the external focus only works to a point. Or, we have to keep filling in the pain with more/different/new/other to block out the quiet whispers that tell us something still isn’t quite right. • What if the solution isn’t looking outward, but going inward? What if those profound feelings of loneliness are asking us to come home to ourselves, first, before seeking connection elsewhere? There is a striking difference between being alone...and being lonely. What does it look like to embrace, even welcome, Aloneness? . . . . 🌵📷: @wildercalifornia

Follow your dreams. Listen to your gut instinct. Follow your hunch. Trust your intuition – always.
Maintaining status quo is the most important thing to an abusive family. ⠀⠀ My grandfather passed away when I was three years old. Thank goodness for that because he was my most violent abuser. He was also active in his church community, an avid gardener and a member of the Lion’s Club throughout his life. My entire family had a perfect facade for the world. ⠀⠀ The fact that I didn’t have any memories of him was understandable since he passed so early in my life. The stories I was told throughout my childhood were disturbing, but not because they were true. In every recollection of him, he was portrayed as this golden god: a patient, kind and giving man. ⠀⠀ But as with any facade, there’s always tiny holes that provide glimpses to the truth behind the barrier. The one gift my grandfather made sure I had before he passed was a copy of The Giving Tree. It was lauded in my family as true love. “How beautiful to give everything you have to the one you love.” Yeah, no. If you haven’t read the book, the very brief synopsis is that a little boy grows up with a tree in his yard and as a child he spends lots of time playing under the tree. And the tree LOVES the boy. But as the boy grows older he takes various parts of her to meet his own desires. Bit by bit he cuts away pieces of her, returning less and less frequently until finally she’s a stump. He returns one last time and sits on her now stump form. And she’s so thrilled that he's spending time with her again. ⠀⠀ Hopefully you’ve noticed the abuse pattern here. So this was the almighty book that was basically my set of rules for the world. “Give everything of yourself for others. You always have something that can serve the people you love. And expect nothing in return.” ⠀⠀ *Check the comments for the rest! #ipreview @preview.app
I woke from a deep sleep tonight with heavy thoughts and fears on my mind. Dark dreams led to anxious questioning. I recorded them by speaking and writing them down, desperate to make sense of them, the truth in the madness... what did it all mean?? And the more I dove in, what I started to see was that I didn’t want to much to know what did IT mean, but what did it mean about ME? Nothing about this darkness was new. Paranoia haunting my sleep is like an old “friend” I’m used to visiting me. That part I knew. What I wondered this time was around what I DIDNT know, less the what and more the WHO. Me. What was it about me? What am I scared of, what do I worry about that manages to find its way to my sleep and wake me from my ... peace? It was hard to be a witness to what I chose to see. And I know we all get here, wondering and asking and even at times SEEING... but then we leave. It’s a lot to look at and feel and we can only take so much. Not this time tho. I sat and stared. Not to FIX but to FEAL. Not even to HEAL but that the deeper wounds would simply feel safe to be revealed... And then they did. They showed themselves. And I felt sick. Oh this. Oh THIS is why I don’t usually sit, see and listen. It’s ugly and hurts. It’s scary and feels alone. “But that’s the only place I feel at home” said a hesitant voice inside me. This is the real me. Not the FREE me. But the real me that isn’t free. I can’t be free until I see that I’m not. That hit me hard. Like an obvious ton of bricks I feel I should have seen by now - but didn’t. And that’s ok. Better late than blindly unafraid. The details of what I was shown are meant to be my own... for now. But what I took away from it all and why I share it here tonight/today (how late is it anyway??) ... Is this: It’s easy to act like we get it. It’s easy to show up and KILL IT with confidence. Fake it to make it. Be strong hot shit. Powerful, sensual, clear headed and directed. But if I (if you, if WE) don’t stop to hold see the FEAR that ALSO drives us... because it DOES... it will grow and be the ghost that STOPS us.
