You hold a position of authority in your field, or people look to you to provide answers when they are going through something. Yet, despite giving guidance and advice to others in their times of need, you may find it hard to apply that same guidance towards yourself. How come it’s so easy to view another person’s situation objectively, yet when you’re in a troubling situation, it seems that all answers escape you? Often times we find ourselves emotionally attached and invested in our problems that it becomes difficult to separate how we feel about something, as opposed to doing what we know is right. This is a common conflict that we all are faced as humans—is there a solution to this? Depends.
At times we can find congruency between our head and heart, other times, no matter what we do, the opposition is strikingly clear and we have to choose one over the other. There is no "one size fits all" answer when we are dealing with these matters, but what is always available to us is an opportunity to view a situation with a different perspective. Sometimes this perspective is forced upon us through painful experiences, other times we can actively participate in inducing this alternative perception. Trying something new, taking a different route, switching up your routine are ways that can break us out of mental patterns that have us perceiving and thinking of situations in the same ways
It seems as if you are asked to perceive a situation in your life from a rational and objective stand point—if something is troubling you, start asking the deeper questions. The energy of looking at its opposite feels relevant here, so before you swear by any strong convictions you hold, question its validity and motivation. There is an opportunity to learn something new about yourself here—we are all on the journey of self-discovery so don’t let your ego fool you into thinking you know it all just because you hold a position where others look to you to resolve issues. Stay open to the fact that there are an infinite number of ways of perceiving anything and you have the choice on what you give meaning to

You hear that calling? You feel that burning in your soul anytime you try to ignore it? Like a small child persistently tugging at your collar or this sickness that won't leave your bones until you fill that cup. That's passion. That's your soul calling. You think you chose it, but that's far from the truth. It chose you, of all the aspects we have control over, this was not one of them.
That thing that puts your spirit on fire, makes your heart sing and your spirit elevate, do that each and every day. It's not meant to be easy, it won't be pretty. Healing is not always love and light as many portray, it's deep and filthy shadow work. It's being the light through all the darkness. Its finding that healer in yourself and making that choice everyday to listen.
Not for profit, not for followers, not for greed. Once you've found it, you'll know and you'll never want to turn back. Living, speaking and finding your truth in your path is the most rewarding feeling.
Being a steward and advocate to mother Earth has shown me the ultimate self worth and undenying love. Caring for the garden has ultimately shown me how to care and be gentle with myself. Nourishing these allies and following my roots has taught my children to believe in themselves.
I've spent hours and days exhausted, sun burnt and aching and asking myself if I'm crazy. These are not the hands of a weak lady, they are the hands of a builder and I hope to sculpt a world where my children can safely eat the food they grow, a world where we can reconnect with our true mother and focus on what's really important. I have hope there's still time for us to fix the damage, that collective healing is possible, that we can reconnect and replenish one another.
Water your gardens my loves and watch yourself grow.

“My issues were deeply rooted in control. Without such diligence and planning around food wouldn’t my weight surge to 400 lbs? Without rules about “cheat days” and veggie intake, wouldn’t my diet be centred on cookies and chocolate?”
