Who you were has created who you are today; have nothing but love, compassion, kindness and forgiveness for that beautiful person.
It’s from these lessons and experiences that shape who we have become and who we are becoming✨
You don’t have to act small, play small or make yourself small any longer.
Stop dimming your light so others can’t see you.
Stop holding all of your successes, accomplishments and achievements to yourself.
Stop worrying about leaving others behind.
Stop feeling the need to remain the same just because all those around you are.
Stop recycling the same old stories that have been played out since 1992.
Start standing taller and allow yourself to be seen.
Take your light off the dimmer switch and allow it to shine like it’s never shined before.
Speak your truth.
Walk your talk.
Own every beautiful cell that you’ve been gifted with.
You are powerful beyond measure.
By playing safe, keeping yourself small and not sharing your gifts with the world, you’re not only being of disservice to yourself, you’re being of disservice to all those magnificent lives you were destined to touch.
Annnnnnd, JUST in case you were wondering, what others think about you is.none.of.your.damn.business 🙌🏼
......how I feel after a kundalini session 🙌🏼
Materialistic things do not impress me, your soul does ✨
This picture was taken at our She Rises- Soul Sister Retreats last November in Costa Rica by my beautiful friend and client Jeannine Ropars 🙏🏼 My most favourite part of the retreat was witnessing these beautiful women turn off the noise and tune into their voice, their inner wisdom; embracing their soul’s true essence.
Two months later, I’m witnessing transformations continuing to unfold- my heart and soul are overwhelmed with love, joy and gratitude.
Nothing lights me up more than witnessing my fellow soul sisters living and embracing a soul-inspired life 🙏🏼 Our spaces are filling up FAST for our next retreat at Bodhi Tree Yoga Resort, November 16-23.
We’d be honoured to have you join us. Our website is in my bio, please feel free to PM if you have any questions💚
From my heart to yours, there’s nothing more powerful than a woman determined to rise 🙌🏼
Being in a constant state of observing; learning, growing and evolving from all of life’s tests, experiences, trials and tribulations, is such a profound and breathtakingly beautiful place for me to be in.
Although each lesson and experience has, at times, been traumatic and challenging beyond belief; I trust that it’s all apart of my journey and is getting me closer towards my soul’s purpose.
After all, we’re all here to learn, grow and love, wouldn’t you agree?
For the last 10 years I told myself:
One day I’m going to get certified to become a yoga instructor.
One day I’m going to host a retreat in Costa Rica.
One day I’m going to help other women break free from their limiting beliefs and suppressed emotions; ensuring that they never felt like I once did-alone, misunderstood, not enough; not worthy or deserving of living a soul-filling life.
One day, I’m going to write my book.
One day I’m going to finally release the emotional, excess, 40 lbs of weight that I’ve been yo-yo’ing with.
It wasn’t until I lost my dad to cancer a year and a half ago, my puppy to a tragic accident one year ago and revived a friend’s life four months ago that I realized “one day” that I seem to be so incredibly fond of.....may never come.
I finally realized that I will never know when my “one day” may very well be my last day.
So, I started living my life as though each day could potentially be my last and through hard work, determination, self belief and a ton of healing; I have brought all of the magic above to fruition.
If you can relate, I invite you to stop putting off all the things that you feel called to do because of that “one day” that will quickly come and just as quickly fade away.
Write that book that’s inside of you.
Book that retreat that you’ve always dreamed of going to.
Take the courses, the workshops, the certifications that you feel drawn to take.
Work with that coach, therapist or healer who you feel called to work with who will catapult you into living your soul’s purpose.
Believe that these gentle nudges and soft whispers are coming to you for a reason.
Trust that your “one day” is today and leap towards whatever your soul is guiding you to do ✨ 📸 @kristiecratephotographer
We all have a story, some darker than others; the stronger the person, the darker the story✨
“Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.” Brene Brown
It’s a beautiful life when you learn to love and accept yourself ✨
There are individuals who come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime.
I believe this beautiful soul sister of mine, @franitagranita
, came into my life for both a reason and a lifetime ✨
Fran is one of the most beautiful souls I have ever met, and is one of the catalysts for my desire in becoming a yoga instructor.
Whenever I go to Costa Rica, I ensure that I attend every one of Fran’s Yoga classes.
She is one of the most gifted instructors I have ever had the opportunity to learn from-she truly warms my heart by the way she teaches. Fran has such a profound way of connecting with her students; her energy and sunny disposition is contagious.
If you’re ever in Jacó, please do attend her classes. I promise you will leave her class feeling as though you are walking on air and overwhelmed with gratitude.
It’s good to be home 🧘♀️✨🙌🏼
Peace out Costa Rica; it’s been a soul-filling 6 weeks✌🏼
