I was going to post this in my stories, but I feel this is longer and something more people need to read and take in.
I’ve been doing daily card pulls on my story, and these are the two I pulled today: The High Priestess and Free From Judgement, Free to Love.
The High Priestess is centered around intuition, sacred knowledge, divine feminine, and the subconscious mind. She asks you to find parts of your life that may be out of balance and fix them through trusting your intuition. This means your intuitive sense is heightened, allowing you to get in touch with your subconscious.
Free From Judgement, Free to Love calls on a mothering and loving nature in your life. You either are learning to become a mother, you have a mothering nature (maybe as a teacher), and/or you need to learn to open yourself up to a nurturing love. This card reminds you that you need to open up to love and/or love yourself in order to love others in the same way. You are affirmed in love and light and the “universal mother” (or whatever you believe in) is holding you close, letting you know you aren’t alone. Feel that connection and know that if things have been particularly difficult, this time will soon pass as a resolution is on the way.

I remember the day I created this quote in my early 20s. I was incredibly proud of it and I remember it was the one time I considered getting a tattoo of it on my ribs so my parents would never see it but I didn't go through with it (I wonder if @suziqqqxx remembers this haha she was talking me through tattoos at the time) Now that I am revisiting the quote I see it in a completely different light to when I was younger but I am still proud of it. It shows me how much I have grown. Back then it was a defensive quote against people who told me I wore too much makeup but then copied my ideas. I remember how angry I was at this one girl I used to sit across from at work she would put down everything I did but a month later would be doing what I had done and then acted like it was her idea all along. Then I moved jobs to a better team and eventually forgot all about her. Now I look back at the old me and realised that I was responsible for my feelings of anger and not her. I am able to see my quote in a new light and use it for a more positive and strong meaning for all who may need it most and that is that I hope everyone can honor their awesome uniqueness and become their authentic selves rather than me jealously clutching my things and thinking that only I can be unique. It now represents to me that I can teach others how to be their own unique brand of weirdness, free from judgement and free from worrying what others may think of them. #growthmindset#growingup#newperspectives#newmindset#freefromjudgement#beyourself#beunique#blacksheep#beanoriginal#beauthentic#authenticity#becomeyourbestself#1111#333#22#theuniverse#loveyourself#learning#lifeisagift
Happiness is an INSIDE job 💛💛 Mental health balance is so challanging to find...when was the last time YOU just stopped to breath...the last time YOU made time for yourself to relax...
OUR mind needs to rest and if we dont make time for ourselves to step off the treadmill eventually we become a victim of our monkey mind...overthinking, analysing, worrying, anxious and depressed.
For many of us it takes practice and discipline to learn to relax and meditate.
It's like learning any new skill but if you really want to reap the benefits you must preservere and be patient💛💛💛💛💛💛💛💛 Start today...set aside 10 minutes just to REALLY Breath.
Just sit with your thoughts, free from attaching to them, free from judgement, watch your thoughts as if they belong to someone else.
Whenever you feel yourself attaching to your thoughts, FOCUS back to your breath and JUST BREATH 💛
Feel the inhale expanding within your body..
Exhale free your mind from your thoughts and relax your brain.
After 10 minutes practice..notice how you feel, hopefully calmer with more prospective.
This technique helped me through some challanging anxious times and I hope it helps you to achieve a little balance and happiness 💖💛💖💛💗💛
Happy Saturday 💛

Yes it does
You are not serving anyone by staying in a place of fear. You are not serving anyone by being ashamed of who you are, by being afraid of what might happen. You are not serving anyone or this planet by shying away from your truth, by resisting your need to be authentic, your need to flourish. You are not serving yourself by hiding. You are not serving yourself by staying in that place of "what if". You are not serving anyone by refusing to see the side of you that is love and that is peace. You do not serve yourself or others by choosing, once again, to remain in a place of fear, of shame, of division and judgment. ⠀
We are afraid because we have forgotten what it feels like to be free. Free from judgements. Free from patterns. Free from seeing ourselves as separate to this world - to this unified consciousness. Free from believing that what we feel is separate from what others feel, that we are special in our myseries and our misunderstandings. ⠀
Yet we can remember. Remember what it feels like to love and to feel loved. To love and see everything as love. Remember what it feels like to not be afraid. To BE and only that. To forget without a need to remember. To let go. To feel. Remember what it feels like to remember. ⠀
Just got out of my yoga class and love the simple reminder to free ourselves from judgment! Judging ourselves does not serve us! When we free ourselves from our own judgement we also stop judging others. .
I’m not sure if we ever truly conquer it... but we Can always work towards more self love and acceptance.
Instead of I cant afford I changed my mindset to it’s not a priority right now. Wow how that changed things for me.
Instead of worrying about the money I don’t have to have or do certain things. I changed my mindset to be grateful for the things I can do. The things I can afford that I couldn’t short time ago. I also changed my mindset from worrying about how I was going to get the money to do x. To just being grateful that it will work its way out.
Instead of being so concerned with people thinking I’m selfish or in my own mind me being selfish spending too much time on my self self reflection and self growth instead I’m changing my mind set to trust and know that any investment or time spent on myself that is truly making personal growth, forward motion is time and money well spent. #moneyMindChallenge @amberlilyestrom #dawnshere#grateful#radicalabundance#freefromjudgement#moneymindset
*FREE FROM JUDGEMENT, FREE TO LOVE* 💛 When our little man was sick a few days ago in Finland, we spend all of our days in the van, with 30 degrees and sunny weather, throwing all day long dirty sheets out of the van, walking for several times our laundry to the washing machine and even got a visit from the ambulance... I realized even more... we know so little about the people we see. People we've never met before. But who cross our path in a moment. Or maybe the people we see more often... The mum of our childs best friend, our yoga teacher or tennis mate. We're making up stories all the time and sometimes we even judge. About what people do, eat, wear... how they look or maybe not look. But we know so little. It's not only "what you see is what you get", but "what you got is what you see". If you free yourself from judgement, the only thing you can see is LOVE. In every moment you connect with someone, wether it's in real life or social media, connect with love and respect. Stop telling stories and connect from your heart. In every moment. With a smile or with kind words. Even if it's only for a second, you will be a sparkle in the day of that person. And what you give you get 💛✌💫🍀 BTW. Everything is well with our little man now! And Finland was very beautiful! Allthough we spend only 1 week there and mainly at the same place 😉
