This word has been coming up several times this weekend for me, to be honest it came many times before but I couldn’t give it the attention it was demanding. It was for three reasons that I didn’t surrender to life’s flow and stop commanding it or controlling it.
1- I needed to do everything that I could to make sure I have done enough to execute my goals but it still ain’t happening now it’s beyond me.
2- I had to learn to believe what went wrong literally had nothing to do with me and there is nothing I could have done differently to change it as it was meant to happen to strengthen trust in myself.
3- clarity of the actual purpose of life and need for meaning to live.
Till I wasn’t able to tick these three off I had severe difficulty surrendering and let God do his part rather me trying to be the controller of the whole life. I guess I had to reach to the point to check the above off the list and actually learn to surrender.
Do you have your story about surrendering, please share in the comments! .
When we respond to someone or something in our life we are always responding from a specific place - love, resistance, fear, frustration, insecurity, judgement, projections, happiness, acceptance and the list goes on!
For those of you who know me, you know I have no problem with listing out every possibility 🤣😂but don't worry, I won't... this time 😋
So when we respond to someone or something our actions and behaviors are reflecting which place we are coming from. If we are confident, secure and accepting of ourselves, then we are able to exhibit all of those actions and behaviors. When we are resistant, fearful or insecure, then we act that way. We think its the situation or person that causes us to feel a certain way but it's always the other way around. It is the parts of us that we haven't healed and are not accepting of that resurface because we are meant to overcome them. So when a situation presents, we can gauge what we still need to overcome and accept and what we have already been able to accept and overcome.
It is the same for the person in front of you. How are they responding? It's not your fault. It is that that person has not accepted and overcome a part of themselves yet and the result is the behavior and action that you're seeing them exhibit. People just need an environment where their unhealed parts can be accepted and understood just as much as their accept the healed parts are understood naturally by others without a second thought ! We heal when we are in a place and environment that accepts all of us and fosters that healing by loving us no matter how healed or unhealed we may be. In contrast - we hide and run from the parts of us that people don't accept. Forgetting that the parts of us that others don't accept are the same parts of themselves that they don't accept, run and hide from because of not being accepted by the world... ✨
The world is ready for a shift. Where we don't need to judge what we don't like about ourselves and others. Where, when we do judge we can look deeper and see that what is required is to shift to accepting and understanding and that is where healing can begin within and for others.
“ The truth is like a lion; you don’t have to defend it. Let it loose, it will defend itself.”

Truth ... it stands by itself. It will always prevail. It is the strength that separates the untruth ... those who know truth recognize it, and it recognizes them.💜
My morning meditation took me on a journey that led me back to childhood. As I began to uncover the feelings and emotions like peeling back an onion, I realized how the circumstances of my life back then led to feelings of being separate and disconnected. It became an inner exploration of how the self gets hijacked by our experiences.
These experiences then begin to cover our true self and thus begins the journey away from our heart. We do things that don’t align with who we are, we hang out with people that don’t align with our nature and we forget our divinity.
At some point in our life we hope we will remember who we are, that we will take steps to journey back to our true nature and when we do, life begins to flow, we are no longer the stories of who we think we are, we align with who we truly are. Our relationships become easier and more meaningful and worry, fear and anxiety no longer rule.
This work takes time, honesty and loving kindness from yourself and those around you. To truly know your supreme self, your highest self is a gift only you can give yourself. It is life changing work that leads to peace and freedom. #love#knowyourdivinity#healwithin#freedom#meditation#peace#grace#clarity#spiritualwisdom#weareinthistogether
I wasn’t always this happy in fact a few years ago I was full of fear because of my:
❗️unfulfilling job working 50+ hours a week
❗️chronic back pain ❗️daily respiratory distress, struggling to breathe
I woke up everyday with panic attacks believing that my life would never get any better.
I knew something had to change but I was so scared about changing everything at once that I ignored the signs and remained stuck.
Randomly, I was invited to take a 7 week yoga training (I only practiced casually at the time), but I said yes to make one small change in my schedule.
That one schedule shift changed my entire life. Through hot yoga, and then yoga therapy and meditation, I learned:
1️⃣ I had never healed from or processed any of my childhood trauma or my father’s passing at a young age.
2️⃣ As a result, I pushed down my emotions and carried the grief and fear in my body. I numbed myself with codependent relationships and jobs that were safe. If I stayed small then I could never be hurt like I was as a kid.
3️⃣ ✨Most importantly✨ All of these were simply patterns built up over time - I held the POWER to shift them. The moment I did, my whole world opened up and I began to heal. ~
I now have a career that I love, and husband who supports my growth and a life filled with joy and possibilities. I became a yoga therapist because there are so many beautiful souls trapped under limiting patterns and beliefs that are masking their pain. You deserve to be free - you are more than worthy and more than enough.
You are one small shift, one new pattern away from a totally different life. Are you ready to find out how? Join my proven program to let go of limiting patterns, heal and be your own hero. ~
