Limitless undying love which shines around me like a million suns it calls me on and on across the universe.
☀️
-John Lennon
Last week we had an incident with our mom while she was admitted to the hospital (and I am only focusing on positive, so I'm not going to get too into details). My younger brother was present with me when it happened...and the only way I can describe it is: it's almost like the devil himself was inside of her body (most people describe this experience as their shadow self).
.
Talking to my brother about it this past week, and I'm still traumatized by it. And his response was, "Why are you so surprised? That will always be her. That will always be a core part of who mom is as a person." And I thought about it. And he's right. With her dementia she will most likely never be able to come to terms with her shadow self. Or be aware enough to overpower it. And that makes me sad. 😓
.
But that experience also made me very grateful. Grateful that I can see through it. That I know my own truth. That I am aware. That unlike my mom, I have the ability to change because I am aware. My brother and I sat down for dinner the night after this happened, and we just talked and talked and talked about our shadow selves. Most people hide that persona from other's. We all wear masks and are too afraid  not only to embody our shadow selves, but we're too proud to talk about it with those close to us. It's very cool to listen. And to be heard. And to share parts of ourselves that we're no longer ashamed of. And we're no longer ashamed because we know that we're stronger than our ego. Better than our ego. And that we've forgiven ourselves for any hurt and pain we've caused as a reflection of that.
.
Now--- just to lighten the mood, here is a picture of my mom while in the hospital. This is her showing her true self. She was super playful at the time saying, "C'mon", and pulling on my leg, "let's just leave. It's ok if we sneak out". Ohhh mom, how I love you. 🏥👵⛓🚔 #shadowwork #awakenedsoul #shadowself #innerpeace #innerhealing #soulhealing #shadowworker #soulguidance #lifepath #soulwork #ascending #energyhealer #souljourney #aware #awareness #innergrowth #humanexperience #ego #egodeath
The LAST of the small spheres... get them before they bye bye!!! Rose Quartz- The "Love Stone", strokes the heart into forgiveness and compassion by helping you to let go of stored anger, resentment, guilt, fear and jealousy by aiding the spleen, kidneys and circulatory system. A heart chakra stone used to attract love but before all else, promote SELF LOVE. This is a good stone to have with you at all times. Many women use this to beautify their skin!

Res Obsidian or Mahoganny Obsidian, this is a powerful stone in times of need as it strengthens you, and works on your root and sacral chakras. A grounding stone that can help you focus on your finances. Also, very good with overall physical well being and detoxing. 
Calcite is "The Balancer". This is great stone for STUDENTS as it amplifies learning abilities, aside from increasing energy in general. Protecting, grounding, centering, this is a good stone for all kinds of healing and peace. A variably coloured stone, it benefits the kidneys, pancreas and spleen. Aleviating fear and stress, it has the ability to balance male and female polarities as well as the emotions. Inspires joy, lightness of being and some claim it can also improve astral projection. 
Picture Jasper is particularly conducive to joining with the energies of Mother Earth and all levels of the Goddess energies. Placing a piece of  Picture Jasper in a room is said to absorb negative energy. In physical healing. Picture Jasper is believed to stimulate the immune system, to help clear pollutants and toxins from the body and to cleanse the kidneys. It is believed to be useful when giving up smoking as it is said to strengthen the resolve.

✨Smile Thru It✨

Today was a rough day. Yet I choose to end the night knowing the power of and in MY smile.

I'm not scared about constantly being yelled at or forced into situations where my ability to act like 'the perfect daughter' was all they really wanted me there for. I can worry about...more personal things. Things that actually matter to me since I'm no longer trying to play a role to fit into someone else's version of me.⠀

Root Woman series
Sky Woman 
Lionsgate

I have spent the last four weeks working with all that I recieved within my summer travels and experiences. 
As change in life feels like the constant, I continue to feel the sun as major source of guidance and healing. 
I have had moments of haramony through connecting to my inspiration and moments of feeling like I am a millions miles away. 
Deep grief of the unknown continue to be my source of release and my love of my life my grounding point.  I feel trust in this journey .

Today I begun to feel the depths of my own work stir and call me back to the canvas as the gifts of the Lions Gate continue to integrate and unfold. 
As I put the finishes dabs of paint on to the resting place of my canvas
I began to ask what is being remembered and encouraged.  through this Intuitive process of connecting to the ancient fires within, I can feel the weaving of time and place, and gateway of deeper understanding open.

Within the ashes of the fires, sky woman opens the lionsgate and  offers:  remember our doorway to the innocence of creation, a place of new awareness and crafting of new guiding intents.  May you allow love to unearth that which lies hidden within the gentleness of each stroke of color in your day.  Within  gentleness the fabric of time parts ways, revealing the ancient language of the soul to speak, this is the dreaming of our future now. 
Here the gateway
 to un-ending potentail opens, offering a sweet experience of unconditional love. 
How do we wish to greet these new potentails.

In this time of return,  the fabric of time haramonizes with the light of the soul and all is aligned. May you walk within the faith of each moment guided by that which brings you joy.

Blessing, Jill Ravyn Stevenson

🔮I feel personally attacked; and it feels so good🔮
As both painful and uncomfortable these podcasts make me feel this women has opened my eyes to how my brain is wired and what needs to be rewired in order to walk fearlessly, open new doors and allow great abundances to fly right on in! 
Although shes not particularly spiritual she speaks to my psychologically trained brain in thought work, how to recognize, release and impliment new, healthy and positive thoughts where our old ones used to be 
Spiritually inclined or not! She is definitely worth a listen to!
And remember 🍂Take what resonates; bless the rest. 🍂

It may sound strange, but sometimes I just sit on my couch, almost in a trance just thinking. Thinking about how far I've come in the past year while simultaneously telling myself I should be so much further. ⠀
It's the curse of a type-A overachiever to always strive for more. But in the moments when the negative self-talk creeps in, I start ticking off the little things. The small wins that have led me to big accomplishments and the big leaps that have taken me to new heights.
⠀
I’m just thankful for a life that allows me to slow down to check in with myself. ⠀
What are the small wins that have led to YOUR big accomplishments?

Are you dimming your light in order to “fit in”?⠀
⠀
Let’s take a moment to remind you who the fuck you are!⠀
⠀
You are (first name) fucking (last name)
⠀
You are fierce AF!
You are a powerful creator!
You are a divine limitless being with gifts that need to be shared!
You are an overcomer!
A conquer if all the things thrown at her!
You are here to change the fucking world!
⠀
You’re not here to fuck around!
⠀
You have gifts within you that this world needs to experience. It’s time to be seen, to share your divine message, and bring more light to a very dark world.⠀
⠀
It’s time to stop hiding, playing small, and dimming your light.⠀
Step out of the limits!⠀
Break the chains holding you back!⠀
Shine your light!⠀
And never underestimate the power you hold within you! ✨

"Your inner child is waiting for a genuine, heartfelt apology."-Yong Kang Chan
Spending some time at one of my favourite places this morning.

Breathing, allowing, reflecting. 
At a time when so much is uncertain one thing is for sure. My current physical state is debilitating enough and serious enough to put EVERYTHING into perspective. 
What a gift.
Healing is an act of self-love. What takes away our power is not our situation, but the fact that we discard the ability to transform our inner world despite what is happening. The mind is quick to assign the responsibility of our emotions and thoughts to what is happening or to what happened in the past, and so it disconnects us from our power to heal.
.
As we go inward and make the inner world our primary focus, we allow space for healing again. To let go of what is harming us we must first realize we are holding on to it in some way, most of the times in a form of a thought or story that justifies why we should recreate the same emotions or the same unloving thoughts.
.
Going beyond the intellect, by becoming fully present without the need or want to react to what the mind is saying, without feeding the stories that carry the burdens of the past and the identity of our suffering, is what allows room for healing.
.
We can always acknowledge what happened and what harms us without giving away our power completely. When instead of feeding the story that justifies why we should recreate harmful emotions or thoughts within, we simply become fully present to the moment and to what we are experiencing, without reacting or reaffirming the story, we allow the light of our presence to dissolve the past, to stop it from being recreated in the present, and to allow healing to happen. ❤️
"The wound is the place where the Light enters you", Rumi. When we rise from the muddy waters like the thousand-petal lotus and transmute unthinkable loss into light, priceless gifts within unfold. Today marks the 5th anniversary of the passing of my precious son, Aaron. I cherish the sweetness of the memories with him that have become shining crown jewels my life. Although I will always miss him immensely, they have helped me rise from the ashes like the Phoenix and heal an excruciating wound.
.

My life has been inspired beyond measure by Aaron. He had an amazing ability to press through challenges regardless of the odds.  When he was seven he loved playing that he was a superhero with super powers. Once his imagination got the best of him and he slid down the banister in our home breaking both of his arms. His only concern- his soccer team needed him and he HAD to play in an important game that weekend. He came out of surgery in style, sporting one green cast and one white one, his team colors. He played that Saturday and scored the winning goal. The Malibu Times was so impressed with this young child's determination to overcome challenges that they covered the story. Aaron's motto- "Don't ask for a lighter load in life, develop stronger shoulders"
.

No one escapes loss. I have been pregnant five times, but due to miscarriages and the loss of Aaron I am left with only one son.  I am grateful for what I have and treasure the memories. They have become guiding lights in my life- a source of alchemy and transformation when creating pieces to perform. .  Life is fragile. Take a break from your daily to do list and create meaningful moments.  Your housework will aways be there, but your chance to create magical moments has a time frame. Enjoy the little things in life, for one day you will look back and realize they were the big things. Greta ❤🙏

"Trauma is personal. It does not disappear if it is not validated. When it is ignored or invalidated the silent screams continue internally heard only by the one held captive."-Danielle Bernock
We all need to soothe ourselves, bring ourselves back from the edge. Losing perspective is to be human. Facing that part of ourself with compassion and kindness will help more than self loathing or self hatred. Understand where this behaviour was learned. Acknowledge this, and step into self care. #selfloathing #selfaware #selfhatred #mensmentalhealth #vancouvertherapist #healthymasculinity #endoftheworld #theendoftheworld #illdie #egocentric #youllbeokay #thistooshallpass #breathe #breathein #breathinandbreathout #breatheinandout #breathingexercises #meditation #perspective #losingit #selfsoothe #selfsoothing #parentingyourself #parenting #selfreflecting #selfempowerment #selfcare #shame #innerhealing #trauma

A moody sky is only shielding the sun beyond. It is only temporary and will shift in time. Our moods are the same, don't fight a mood or emotion, allow it to be there and it will move on, making way for the light to shine through .

Take three deep, cleansing breaths. Now I invite you to tune into the power of your mind. Our perception and thoughts dictate how we experience the world, so empower yourself and consciously choose to chase and entertain the positive thoughts. The negative ones may surface and that's okay, you don't have to spend lots of time engaging with those. With that choice, notice the transformation that occurs – life is more enjoyable, you’re not so easily thrown off track, it’s easier to get things done, you have more fun and you attract people who help you live your best life. You're so worthy of making that choice and you deserve all the goodness that comes with it. xo
What are you doing to make a shift you are looking for in your life? Are you doing the inner healing work; or are you just hoping and praying the shift will happen over night? ⁣
.⁣
Y’all, I had no idea how important working on your inner self was. I also didn’t realize how many different modalities were out there to aide you on your healing journey. ⁣
.⁣
Coming from someone who was lost, angry, anxious, and so much more I constantly looked outward to help me heal. It wasn’t until I found the inner healing modalities that I use today to make my shift (chakra healing, crystal healing, reiki, energy healing, emotion healing, mindfulness, meditation, yoga, breathing exercise, and there are so many more).⁣
.⁣
I encourage you to look within and do the work. Find the modalities that work for you and do them. Don’t just sit back and continue to pray for a change. Assist your prayers with actions. Do yourself a favor,  go within and begin healing.

There are always things to overcome throughout your life. However, there is one thing that you absolutely have to spend your whole life working on to overcome. It's an asteroid found in your birth chart called the Chiron. Depending on where it is, it will describe exactly what you've probably already gone through in your life and what you need to continue working on.

When we think of addictions, we often think of the more obvious vices - drug abuse, sex or gambling. 
But what fly under the radar, (and plague almost everyone) are the socially acceptable ones. Some are even highly regarded, like working hard and being successful.

I am not saying that the actions themselves are “bad”, but they can be considered addictions if they are having a negative impact on your life. 
Do they cause chronic stress, physical injury or illness? 
Are they creating excessive conflict and prevent you from having long-term, meaningful relationships?

Do they make you feel elated or happy, but soon later feel empty and lifeless, wanting more of the same or something else?

Although these addictions may not ruin ones life, they can certainly distract you from seeing the underlying feelings of lack, hurt, apathy or emptiness thats drives us towards these unfulfilling habits. 
I know this because these 5 are all ones I struggle with. I try not to shame myself when I am doing them, but there are times I do feel I’ve fallen into a horrible rut of self-loathing and mediocrity. 
I’m working with tools now to come back to myself when I recognize I’m doing these things and try to listen for what’s really happening inside. This is the first step, and from there, healing can begin.

Digest Zen is up there as one of my favourite oils. I have struggled with a bloated stomach for years and its mainly because I’m a stress head!! So along with Balance and Lavender to calm me down I use Digest Zen as it soothes my stomach and helps to reduce by bloating. .
. 
It comes in a roll on as well that I apply to my belly every night. I also use it when I know I have eaten something that doesn’t sit well in my stomach. I add one drop to some hot water or even to a herbal tea.
It is also great to have while traveling if you are trying new foods or suffer from an upset stomach.
.

Be careful not to let the mind fool you. 
Your soul will always lead the way. -

It is peaceful, loving and all knowing. -

Be still to settle into the wispers of your soul and I promise it will give you all the guidance and reassurance you are craving X
Body image:

What is the relationship like with your body? 
In society there is a constant pressure to look a certain way!

With all these standards, pressures, expectations - it can result in eating disorders, body dysmorphia, mental health issues and an overall lack of self love/ acceptance and disconnect from our bodies.

How can we begin to navigate a healing  relationship with our bodies? >> Spend time naked
>> Massage your body - dance with it
>> Practice telling yourself you are holding yourself in wholeness
>> Unlearn the false beliefs once put before us
>> Rid yourself of diet culture
>> Practice radical acceptance/ self love
>> Allow yourself to take up space

This is a reminder our worth lies above and beyond than how our bodies look.

If you need a place to heal your relationship with your body and reclaim your power - we hold this space for you and do powerful self inquiry, unlearning and holistic practices to begin this journey 🙏🏼 Next retreat October 17-23rd - you can email via link in the bio for an application form.

Today is my ten year wedding anniversary.  Instead of celebrating a decade of love, we’re going through the process of divorce. I really didn’t know if I wanted to post about this today, but something didn’t feel right about glossing over the 10 year mark. My marriage has mattered to me, even though it hasn’t turned out how I’d hoped. •
•
•
I’m staring uncertainty in the face on many fronts these days, but there are still a few things I know for sure. •
•
•
❤️ I know that my kids will be more than ok. I’ve cried many tears around the fact that they will not get to grow up in one home with their biological parents. I was a product of divorce and so was their dad.  I deeply wanted to break that cycle. But some things take greater priority than just simply keeping children in a two parent home. God has reassured me over and over again that He is watching over my kids. That He loves them more than I do. And that they will thrive despite this loss. •
•
•
❤️ I know that I don’t need to be married or in a relationship to be happy, healthy or whole. There’s a pervasive idolization of marriage for not just single women but also married women in our culture.  I believe this idolization keeps us in bondage.  I choose to break away from the fear of being “alone” because I’m not actually alone when I’m not in a romantic relationship. I have great, connecting relationships all around me, including my relationship with myself, that can fill up my love bucket when I need it •
•
•
❤️ Most importantly, I know that all is not lost. Over the last ten years, I’ve learned so many things about myself, about grief, about what it takes to have healthy relationships, about when to let go and when to keep fighting. I have seen how God is using it for good and I expect even greater things to come.

So tonight, two of my best friends are coming over. We’re going to talk and pray and laugh and probably cry. And I’m going to give myself the space to feel all my feelings and let God give me his perspective so I can continue to journey into the next season of my life with strength and peace. Onward and upward ✨
Healing is not always pretty. In fact, transformation, deep, profound transformation, is rarely pretty. It's messy and hard and heart wrenching. It takes courage and faith to embrace. But...
When we step through it, when we have the courage to dig through the painful shit.. the growth is tremendous. The more we dig into the depths of our pain and walk through it the more light of authenticity can shine through.
