Dusk, the setting of the sun.
Giving thanks for each and every one.
I have been contemplating what to do with this account for a while. As I grow my personal business, I've been tempted to give in to marketing, trends, and things to gain followers and likes.
I started Soulistic Nutrition back in 2014 as an outlet to deep pain I was experiencing. Anxiety and depression amongst some other conditions caused a great awakening within me that had been creeping up for some time. This page enabled me to connect with others with similar interests and on similar journeys; those feeling so deeply about a world that seemed so anesthetized to it's own reality & the great karma it was building to.
Since then, I've been on this sacred journey teaching me so much about life, always humbling me to how much I don't know and will never know. Health is something I try not to take for granted and through my journey, still want to connect with others seeking the great depth to this adventure we're on.
This is still a mix of my business account and my personal journey. As a student I learn from all, even those that may seek my help. I intend to go forth with as much authenticity as I can balance with my own privacy preferences. I will try to share my own journey, advice, & lessons, while trying not to get sucked into the Ego trap that this silly social media loves to bring out in us. •
I have much I want to share, from the state of the world to the state of myself. But my heart is a daughter of Hawa, and each day turns over and over more than a pot of boiling water. I write, reflect, & hesitate of what is truly necessary to share on this platform. I want to reach the soul, being poetic & connected. I also want to get results, so I jump to the point and skip the personal. •
So, until I figure this out, here's a beautiful sunset and a gentle tide being pulled by the waxing moon. I find it symbolic of the push I have to go out and put myself into the world, and its subsequent counter-pull back into myself & my inner world again.
I present to you “The original Holy Trinity!” African wombman (first), man and child! It’s always been you my people! The first mother, father and child (trinity) rather spiritually, symbolic or physical; is derived from ancient Egyptian kemetic deities, yes your ancestors! Your culture, heritage, lineage and spirituality was stolen from YOU renamed and revised to suit those who stole it from you! There it is, that’s the secret and they don’t want to know because then you’ll wake up! The chains will come off and you won’t be so easily controlled anymore! Ma’at, your true original spirituality was NEVER meant to oppress you, make you submissive or tolerant of mistreatment. It was meant to inform you of your power and the wonderful beauty of the universe which is also being kept from you! To liberate you and uplift you! I ask you how can the African race ever realize our full potential by being subservient to a plagiarized version of an ancient Egyptian deity? How can the African man or the indigenous man ever realize his true self if he’s constantly under the spell of a plagiarized version of himself? Wake up my people! Realize that you are the original wombman first, then man and child! The culture and spirituality of your ancestors OUTDATES all other spiritualities, doctrines and religions (if you will). Don’t be fooled by these false prophets seeking to attain a higher position or dollar amount on account of your ignorance! We are in the age of information today, take advantage before it is too late! #studyyourself#knowthyself and take your rightful place in the affairs of the earth! 💯✊🏾👸🏽🤴🏾👶🏾👑✊🏾 #staywoke#theblackwombmanisgod#originalholytrinity#maat#namaste#knowthyself#knowledgeofself#knowledgeispower#knowledge#pangea#pinealgland#thirdeye#consciousliving#consciousness#consciouscommunity#conscious#higherself#doforself#selflove#kingsandqueens#brothersandsisters#peaceandlove#peaceandlight#peace
Why is it that we kill ourselves to keep promises to others, yet so often break our word to ourselves?
The trust we build, or break, with ourselves is one of the greatest determining factors of our success, because our brains are wired to create situations which revert to our default thinking.
Think about it:
—> You told yourself you would go to the gym 5 times this week. You went 3, which is better than last week!
—> You told yourself you’d just have wine on the weekend. You slipped in a glass on Thursday as well. You had a work thing.
—> You promised yourself you’d reach out to some prospective clients for your new online business. You decided you needed to be a little more prepared first, so you spent that time watching some training videos.
—> You swore you were going to start meditating this week. The baby is going through a leap and was crying every night, so you just couldn’t drag yourself out of bed a few minutes earlier. She’ll be out of this phase soon. You can start then.
While there’s no huge, glaring problem with any of these scenarios, and all of the justifications are quite understandable...just note the justifications. The mind’s default is to “keep you safe” from growth, which can be uncomfortable, by coming up with super realistic and understandable justifications for you to NOT do something which will cause you to grow!
Man, our minds can be tricky!
But as each of these scenarios occurs, there is a self-limiting, often subconscious, belief that is reinforced: “I never keep my promises to myself”.
...and the cycle continues.
One of the first steps to take is to start being more thoughtful of the promises you make to yourself, the short term goals you set, and make LESS of them. Be super realistic, so you can celebrate your wins each week! Small celebrations, of small wins, add up quickly, redefining your default. And that’s when the real magic can happen.

The most mystical/ divine thing I've ever experienced.
On the last day, my favorite thing I heard from the owner Gerry was, "you've completed your hero's journey, now it's time to go be the hero" 🙏❤️☯️ Day 1 coming tomorrow

Shout out to @tennis.biscuit for being an enthusiastic thrifter and making our mornings all the more colourful! 💛🧡
This morning I woke up with that familiar monthly ache in my belly. Within minutes, that subtle “hello” was a screaming, writhing “HEY GIRL, HEY!” and I doubled over thinking about what I had to do today. New client call at 12:30. Full blown in-person session at 1. My partner had driven over to take Apollo to play and as I went over my day with him, I said “I want to reschedule it, but I won’t do that.” And then an intuitive voice kicked in like…”Hold up, sister…hold up.”
Culturally, we’re conditioned to grin and bare it during our periods. Throw some Midol on it, grab a tampon and make it work, right? It’s a natural process that we’ve kept as far from our awareness as possible, made it as sterile as possible, and as silent as possible. Hearing my own conditioning to muddle through, an ancestral knowledge kicked in that asked me gracefully to rethink.
Contrary to how we collectively experience our periods today, the ancestral, Native women of America had another approach. A woman on her moon was revered for her wisdom, intuition + guidance, as it was believed that she was the embodiment of a holy spirit. Tribal women would retreat to sacred tents or huts to connect, rest, and tune in for this divine time, individually + as a community as cycles synced. They’d be held in ceremony by both the women and men of their tribe.
Sitting with the choice of whether or not to lean into this intuitive request from my body to rest and communicate with myself, I thought about what I’d want my clients to be empowered to do. I want THEM to give themselves + their tribes permission to connect with the intelligence of their own bodies. I’d want the woman I was scheduled to sit with today to allow herself the space to feel, rest, trust and listen. I’d want HER man to bring her a green smoothie in the morning and send her lunch. I’d want HER to take the day off. I’d want HER to say, “Hey body, I’m HERE for this. I’m HERE with you.”
From now on, the 14-17th of every month is blocked out in my calendar. I’ll be in my tent with two heating pads, sushi, a Le Croix, Netflix, + a hand on my belly. Bye ✌️
Although especially men's egos want to fix everything themselves it is just more humble, patient, wise and more pleasant to ask for help and have a reason to be together...
I wish I had a lil more Venus in me sometimes...but I am from Mars. Wait, I have this book but still haven't read it!???

It does not matter if others love your art. It matters if you love it. Does your art speak to you? Does it inspire you to get out of bed every morning? Does it light your soul on fire? Create art that is authentic to you. And then don’t be afraid to share it far and wide. Those who need it, will find it. @arethafranklinqueenofsoul thank you for shining your light and sharing your art with this world. It is a better place because of it.

Regrann from @drmarkhyman - The products of our industrial food system don’t just make us fat and sick, they also damage our brains and rob us of our ability to live full and happy lives. Food is important not just for our health, but also for our national security, environment, social justice, politics, and more. If you’re as passionate as I am about the effects of food, check out my @TEDxChicago talk to hear more about how we can impact the world with what we put on the ends of our forks.

‘Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.’ - Albert Einstein
Sometimes we cultivate habits and experiences over and over in our lives that as much as we may ask ourselves why, we just can’t seem to put our finger on why these things keep happening. At times, it is our own inability to say no, other times it feels as if it is happening to us.
Many times, the things that happen are part of cellular memory, things passed down to us from our ancestors such as guilt, fear or anger. When we cannot find an answer, look to affirmations that speak to the underlying issues creating these experiences.
Speak to your DNA and your ancestors to release yourself from these thought forms and patterns ✨ #dna#affirmations#release#letgo#guilt#anger#fear
Today our #quote from the #DalaiLama is just a reminder that although the people and things around us hold a plethora of information, true enlightenment & understanding of universal truths can only come from within. We are all capable of creating energy in the form of love; flows & transfers of energy are what drive our universe forward in perpetuity, remember to focus your mind on the creation of positive energy and you will find success on your path. As always, much love #fibonaccifamily 💚👽🙏
Last Sunday @eeeelllleeee and I spent the morning playing dress up and shopping in @theroyalnative show room. We had SO much fun. If you haven’t checked out Hilary’s stuff yet, you’re missing out. Also no better time than now since she’s having a huge sale this Saturday!
One of the things I am inspired by most is entrepreneurship and a person’s will to push past fear and doubt in order to create. To create beautiful things, businesses, lifestyles that fit who they are, services that benefit and empower others, places of conscious community, you name it. We all have this ability to create in some way or another. The way to do it: push past the fear and f**king go for it. Take the risks. Believe in yourself. Don’t worry a second what other people think. Trust the journey. Do what it takes to make it happen. And don’t give up. Feeling super grateful to have met and become closely surrounded by so many badass boss women this past year. They all inspire me daily 💃🏼
Social technologies and systems for organizing ourselves is a major way to take back our power and accomplish more together. Would you agree? Learn this kind of stuff at this years Permaculture Convergence. It's coming up quick!
Are you adding more stress to your day with negative self-talk? Listen in as @drmolly.co discusses why adding a level of psychological stress to objective experience is essentially doubling our stress.
Can't get enough of the topic? Head on over to the podcast link on our site to listen to the entire discussion.
Yesterday was a great test for me - many things happened to me (at once, starting at 1am 😅) that could have been viewed as “bad” or “inconvenient”. Canceled flights, lost bags, small airplanes, time sensitive business things, etc. in the hectic scene of an airport no less! But it was the perfect time to practice what I preach, as everything happens for a reason, so here is a list of three immensely positive things a that happened to me yesterday:
💧 Our new host has a super cute Frenchie (not potato, pictured here - side note, should I get a puppy or will it make traveling too hard?)
💧 Learned circular breathing on my own (probably incorrectly) for didgeridoo 🎉 💧 Held my first ever 2+ minute handstand 😍😍
Gratitude is the 🔑 to life. What are three good things that happened to you? Always find the positive ❤️
It’s beautifully odd that this reality seems to consist of bodies of consciousness vibing around trying to create some reason or meaning to existence, in a constant flow between fear and love.
Im pledging to spend more time playing, creating and being ♥️🙌🏻♥️
