Turmeric-quinoa porridge🙌 If you love porridges as much as I do I really recommend that you try this combination. It’s amazing for breakfast. It’s especially amazing on those chill mornings. To make this beautiful bowl I cooked some quinoa with oat milk, turmeric and cinnamon for 15 minutes. Then I topped it with some berries, peanut butter, shredded coconut and chia seeds. This is a real health bomb guys. It’s very nutritious, high in protein, gluten-free, it has anti-inflammatory, and it’s a great source of iron and magnesium. Isn’t that amazing?!😄 I hope you like it! Today I want to encourage you to let go of the things that no longer serve you. Just because something entertains you, feels good or looks good doesn’t mean it’s actually good for you. Choose to be the Master of your own mind, choose to let go of old habits if they don’t help you to become the person you want to be. Take responsibility for everything you do, that’s the first step to start making better decisions. You deserve to grow. You deserve to evolve. You are in control, you just have to take your power back. Let’s shed old layers. Let’s embrace change. You should be your own leader. You’ve got yourself 💓.
Everything we come into contact with daily has the power to ADD HEALTH or SUBTRACT IT from our body. 💄⠀
So I look at it this way, if I have the option to take ALL OF THE GUESS WORK out of my daily personal care - from nutrition to makeup to skin care and even what I put on my baby’s bottom, why wouldn’t I? It’s honestly such a no brainer. ⠀
🔍 I don’t have time to dissect labels and ingredients but I do care about what I’m putting on my body & I choose where I can to make purchasing decisions surrounding that. ⠀
How? 🤷🏼♀️ Buy from a company who has already done the label reading for me. Over 2000 - I repeat - 2️⃣0️⃣0️⃣0️⃣ ingredients have been excluded from our product formulations because well, you already have enough toxins comin’ at ya from every direction! ⠀
👆🏻Swipe to see the NEWEST products launched today - we’ve taken the guess work out of for you. ⠀
🧘🏼♀️ Oh my gosh what will you do with all that free time you have now because you’re not spending time researching all the phthalates, parabens and sulfates in your products?!! ⠀
Arbonne has had these in the works for TWO YEARS - we are ahead of the game on so many levels. Mostly - you can rest assured the work has been done for you. Now - go make yourself a chai protein latte and enjoy your extra free time 😘⠀
“I don’t have a choice.”
I caught myself in this story again this morning. I heard myself saying it to someone in a conversation I was having with them in my mind. It’s a familiar belief; my lack of choice. Though this time in saying in, it reverberated through my mind in a different way than it ever had before. Almost like a question of sorts that sound like “wait, what? That’s interesting. Do I really believe that?” I said it to myself again, this time noticing what I felt in my body as I said it.
“I don’t have a choice.”
Ugh. A bit of a shudder and a blocked feeling in my upper abdomen, the area where the solar plexus chakra lives. The more I repeat it to myself, and the more that I feel in to the way my body feels in response, the more anger I feel come up in me. The more conflict it creates inside of me. The more I realize I don’t actually line up with that belief anymore.
I all of a sudden feel like in my mind’s eye I’m able to zoom out and see a sort of bird’s eye view of my life. I’m able to see how this belief has affected not only my choices but how I’ve felt about my choices, or lack there of. As I continue to explore the anger, the sensations in my body, the fact that while the belief is so familiar but now all of a sudden also feels so foreign, I gain clarity on where that belief came from. I realize whose voice it actually is when I hear it repeating in my head. It’s not mine.
I realize that I don’t actually believe that anymore, and I don’t want to.
What do you hear yourself saying often that creates conflict within? How does your body feel in response? How does that conflict manifest physically, whether in your body or elsewhere in relationships or your relationship to money or in your career, or possibly even in your health?
If you like tuna sandwiches for lunch, here’s how to upgrade:
1) use canned wild salmon instead of tuna (it tastes exactly the same!). 🐟
2) go light on the mayo, and use avocado mayo (you can check the healthy mayo guide on our site for the best brands). 🥑
3) put the salmon salad on a rice cake instead of bread. 🍚
4) top with greens! 🌱 (For extra flavor, dice a pickle in addition to celery and red onion). #healthylunchideas#salmonlunch#consciousliving#consciouseating
On Wednesday evening my boyfriend and I went snowboarding at Chill Factor. This was only my second time in the space of a few months and I picked it up surprisingly easy the first time - something that, instead of giving me confidence, actually gave me a lot of anxiety doing it again. What if I’d forgotten how to do it? What if I’m completely shit and can’t stop falling over? What if I can’t even get on the button lift (an anxiety stemming from horrific childhood skiing experiences)??? It actually brought out a pretty ugly side of me as I realised that a) no matter what I previously believed, perfectionism is still a huge part of my character, and b) I often let the fear of failure control my life. It frustrated me no end - here I was thinking I was over that shit, that I accepted my strengths and my weaknesses for what they are and that I love myself enough to know I don’t always have to be perfect or even good at everything. And the more angry and frustrated I got the more anxious I got about my boyfriend seeing this ugly side of me and what he thought of me.
I don’t know at which point it hit me that this all revolved around the thing that my whole life has revolved around: the need to have control. Of situations, of how others perceive me, of my own thoughts and feelings. Control is a tricky thing: the more you grasp for it, the more it slips away. So bit by bit I tried to release it. Let it go. Trust the universe that it will all work out exactly how it’s supposed to. And that’s exactly the intention I’m going to start working with 💫✨ #releasewhatnolongerservesyou#theuniversehasyourback
Beloved beautiful Chanti will be teaching the wisdom of Yantras in Shakti School next year @yantrawisdom
“Blood lines are long—they can be tied all the way to the first woman like a great umbilical cord. .
The women you see—each and every one—she is your sister, keep seeing her that way.”
There is a difference between being victimized and being a victim. The reality is that awful things do happen to people every day all over the world. It is true that people are victimized, and examining our victim consciousness does not negate the fact that bad things may have happened to us. But it is one thing to acknowledge being victimized and another to take on the identity of a victim. Being victimized is a time-bound event. Being a victim, or living with victim consciousness, is an identity with corresponding emotional and behavioral patterns. When we take on this identity we go into a trance that affects how we view and show up in the world. It’s essentially saying “I am my wound, and I will live from this place,” rather than “I have been wounded.” When we have been wounded there is a natural process of grieving and healing. You are not meant to ignore it, agree with it, or pretend it didn’t happen. But the goal is to realize that you are not what happened to you. Part of the healing that is available to us is to recognize our power to choose our identity and take back control over our lives. The wound is the precursor for us finding our true power and potential. Don’t get stuck before the miracle happens. ✨

People are outraged by abuse...What are your thoughts?
I love the composition of this photo, but as I looked at my reflection in the looking glass my thoughts began to behave like bullies.
They taunted me for a while and I decided not to listen... then they started to tell me lies and shout names.
I have learnt that underneath the surface these thought patterns can be changed because they belong to old thinking and old beliefs.
Our body and minds are connected. Our thoughts effect our feelings and our feelings effects our behaviours. .
Simply put...Change your thoughts, change your feelings, change your behaviour. .
Here are some simple techniques to help question your thoughts.
1. Imagine your friend was having this thought, what advice would you give them.
2. Put your thoughts into perspective, will it actually matter in 3 months?
3. Think about someone who inspires you and how they might handle the situation.
4. Remember a past compliment and remember how it made you feel. .
Keep it simple, keep it realistic, aim for just one thing, take your time, learn when it goes wrong , forgive, adapt and move on.
Repeat right now...I. AM ENOUGH
YOU GOT THIS 😊

Hey friends! We’ve been a little MIA here on Instagram—busy making product, filling orders, forming partnerships and with life in general. But we wanted to drop in to say we’re still here and to thank you all for your continued support and love ❤️ Hope you all go into your weekends happily! ✌️
This one is for you, Rohan. @green_humour :
Just my very ordinary way of saying thank you for the extra-ordinary humor you weave into your stories.
I am learning from each of your post about Mother Earth, and so is my 6-year-old daughter.
I have always tried to live a very simple life, and I try to be as less materialistic as possible.
This year, though my focus is to mercilessly declutter the things at home, the toughest task has been to do away with plastic, and also to have a minimal wardrobe.
I repeat my clothes often even while I have to be on stage, delivering a talk. I try to be extra nice to those who judge me by my clothes.
I always buy new clothes when much of my stuff have worn out, and now I try to buy less online to avoid the packing materials that stack up, or from those who use biodegradable packing.
This dress from @myntra has been my most favorite, is light-weight, and also lifts my spirits.
This dress has travelled with me to HongKong, Pondicherry, Singapore, Wayanad and many many places since 2015.
Here’s a little promise that I will try to minimize waste as much as I can.
Sending cheers and love to you, Rohan! I will not be like Sasha! 🤗💓
Il y a un mois, j'ai eu le plaisir de découvrir le salon de coiffure @artisanvegetal, récemment ouvert et tenu par Justine et Jeremie, deux jeunes gens spécialisés dans les produits naturels et respectueux de l'environnement. Amis de longue date, ils ont décidé de s'associer, d'une part pour Jeremie qui était spécialisé dans la coloration végétale et d'autre part pour Justine qui n'avait connu que des coiffeurs traditionnels et qui en était devenue plus que dégoûtée puisque les produits qu'elle utilisait tout au long de la journée lui ont un jour coûté sa santé. On ne se rend pas compte des répercussions que peuvent avoir les shampoings, soins, colorations et autres produits conventionnels sur la santé de celles et ceux qui les appliquent à longueur de journée. En tant que consommateur ils sont moins en contact avec nous et pourtant on décèle déjà de nombreuses maladies liées à leur utilisation. Alors imaginez sur un coiffeur ou une coiffeuse. Sans compter l'aspect environnemental qui est tout aussi important. La boutique est située à Paris au métro Voltaire, la décoration est minimaliste et à la fois très chaleureuse avec ses murs bleu roi et les illustrations de plantes peintes en doré. Les colorations sont faites à l'aide de poudres de plantes que vous pouvez apercevoir sur la photo et on vous chouchoute le cuir chevelu lors des shampoings et soins. Petit bonus mais pas des moindres, ils ont des sièges massants! J'ai failli m'endormir tellement j'étais bien! Le duo est vraiment très agréable, on aurait envie de parler écologie avec eux pendant des heures! Moi qui étais fâchée avec les coiffeurs depuis des années, je suis ravie quand je fais des découvertes aussi agréables que celle-ci! Je suis repartie avec quelques centimètres en moins et un joli brushing naturel. Foncez! x

I’ve come to the awareness that there are no absolute outcomes, because once you reach one end, there is another fork in the road that shows up, OR you make one. So I now see an accomplishment or even the end/death of something as an opportunity to make a new decision. Do I stay the same, which eventually leads to decay...or do I make a bold decision to take my life to new levels, expand my consciousness, and continue to chase my greatness? It will come down to what your core truth and core values are. What’s the truth you want from your life?
What if we didnt have to be identified by the parts of us we don't want to be identified by?
What if the parts of us that we think make us less than could somehow be allied with us?
What if we could embrace all of it because none of it controlled us, every part of us just worked together in beautiful harmony...✨ This may sound too good to be true but it's not. The reality is, we weren't made to hate ourselves, to wish away parts of who we are, instead we were made to love ourselves, to live out in full of all that we are.
That, however, is far easier said than done, I know. So how do we love it all?
We take our set — our set of chemicals, experiences, programming — and we stop fighting it, denying it and hating it.
When we fight it, we give it the control we so desperately don't want it to have, we rob ourselves of acceptance, peace and full blown JOY we deserve.
Hear this real quick; depression is not an enemy, anxiety is not an enemy, they are parts of us we have not learnt to master, love, nurture and accept.
Read that part again.
Nobody can expect anybody to have that control and have that mastery without first programming in new neuro chemical pathways that allows you to find permanent peace and acceptance in every single part of how you were made, the things that shape you and the things about you that you think identify you negatively.
But you were made for so much more, you were made to live in utter joy and mind blowing excitement and love.
That's what lights me up to get to do what I do. To finally be able to teach you how to live that life every single day of your life effortlessly.

There is always a candle lit in our home, always. It just makes everything so much more cozy ❤️🍂 Cozy Cashmere, our Fall candle with @soyharvestcandles made here in Manitoba smells amazing - cozy is exactly how I would explain it! With notes of bay leaves, orange, lemon, middle notes of pine, spruce, clove ; and well rounded with base notes of eucalyptus, pine and amber you aren’t ever going to want to blow this beauty out. With a little one in the house, it’s also comforting to know that I’m burning a clean safe candle into the air of our home. We also have Pear Latte, with hint of caramel, roasted espresso, and fall spices. 🍐Message me if you would like one added to my order tonight.
You have the power to not only BE the light, but to GIVE light ✨ Did you know that for each #VIbrateHigher purchase we donate a solar powered lamp to a family in need in Haiti. To help us #WearGoodDoGreat click the link in our bio or visit VibrateHigher.com ❤️ PC: @sarahuactive
Self Tip // Connect to the elements and lean into the rhythms of the earth — I’m craving morning light, daily walks and lots of sleep. The autumnal equinox is this weekend and old me would be forcing my body up and out of bed in the dark and into motion for high-energy spin class, but as I embrace my own womanhood and cyclical patterns, I’m giving myself grace to slow down, enjoy mellow, mindful moments and ease into the season. I’m more grounded and magnetic; open to calling in life ❤️ Long story: Do it, but slower 🤟🏼
Thanks @_benshen_ for your radiant workshop and @freeandnative for your profound interview with @puakai — expanding, expanding, expanding.
