Wondering why it’s been so quiet over here for the past couple of months? The truth is that I’ve been hibernating. On a digital hiatus of sorts. Convalescing. I still am.
This summer and fall, despite my best efforts, I was running myself a bit ragged — over-scheduled, stress level dialed up to 11, saying yes to everything and everyone but myself, stuck in a rhythm of "go go go," and generally just doing a rotten job of taking care of myself.
I knew that I needed to make some major changes, but I didn't know HOW.
Nothing was working. Nothing would stick.
So now as I emerge (as slowly and gently as I can) from this period of retreat, I thought it might be helpful to share some of the things I'm learning.
If you've been feeling this way too — like you are a hamster on a wheel and you can’t stop running even for a second — I wrote this journal entry (thisislittledipper.com/journal/strong-medicine) for you. To tell you about all of the things that didn't work and the one thing that did. The one thing that was the strong medicine I needed.
May it serve you on your journey.
Laugh, cry, walk, swim, clean, prep, play, joke, relax, nap, read, cuddle, rest, run, laze, eat, organize, draw, write, scroll, talk, day dream, join, welcome, sit 🧡
Ask yourself what you need today, and make space for yourself to honor that. Even in a tiny way. Self Care doesn't have to be costly, take a lot of time or take you away from your family and obligations. .
Anytime you turn towards yourself and honor your needs, you are caring for your *self*. Your beautiful self. .
I honor myself by posting on my hil_heals account, I have found this to be a very therapeutic way of being creative 🧡
How can you show yourself care today? How can you honor your truest, healthiest self today? .
"I don't want him to think I'm a tease." "I've led him this far, I can't say no now." I think it's safe to say, as women, we've all had at least some form of these thoughts.
And... They're complete bullshit.
Conditioned to please others +
Afraid to disappoint +
Taught to be submissive +
Led to believe other's needs & desires come before our own =
Recipe for self-sacrifice, self-harming patterns, and soul-crushing relationships.
If any of you need this, here it is:
You have FULL PERMISSION to follow YOUR pleasure and share it with others as YOU wish.
You have FULL PERMISSION to change your mind.
You have FULL PERMISSION to say no because it does not feel right or good anymore.
You have FULL PERMISSION to take care of YOU FIRST, no matter what.
You have FULL PERMISSION to disappoint someone else if that means you are honoring yourself & your integrity in the process.
Whenever you say YES when it's a soul NO, and
whenever you say NO when it's a soul YES, you are not respecting or honoring yourself, or living in your integrity.
You create a greater divide between your soul and your reality.
You create fragments within yourself.
You create trauma (often RE-traumatizing yourself). You perpetuate distrust of self, and others,
You perpetuate self-hate and disregard,
You perpetuate a self that is out of alignment with desire, soul, and purpose.
Even if it's "okay," and you love the person, and on some level you are enjoying the connection, there are parts of you that are not. And that is key. .
ALL OF YOU MUST BE IN ALIGNMENT.
All of you.
Break the patterns of self-sacrifice, and people pleasing.
Honor your feelings, moment to moment.
Care more about how you feel than what others will think of you.
And experience a greater love of self that will infiltrate your entire reality.✨
Y’all I can’t believe 2018 is quickly coming to an end. Where on earth did the time go?
I swear it seems like I was just hiking up the ridge behind my house setting my intention for this year (Expansion). Wondering what 2018 would have in store for me. Rest assured the Universe showed up in full support.
I’ve found myself reflecting a lot the last month and feeling so much tenderness for this past year. I really wanted to do something to honor all the pieces of this year before jumping forward into the next.
I’ve decided to write a letter to myself pouring love into all of the beautiful wins I’ve experienced over the course of this year.
Sometimes those wins we’re simply getting out of bed with a smile and sometimes they were being brave and trying something new or sitting and embracing the heart ache of loss and longing.
Regardless it’s about acknowledging the good we do for ourselves and others.
I’ve invited all of my adult kids to do the same and I invite you to join us.
I really want them to look back and be as proud of themselves as I am. I want them to see the beauty they bring into this world and I want that for you as well.
I believe when we write it, we see it and we feel it that much deeper.
Before we move into 2019, let’s celebrate the beautiful ways we showed up for ourselves and each other in 2018.
Let’s sing each other’s praises and give ourselves a little extra lovin’. ♥️
When you value yourself, you will stand up for what you believe is right. Some will push back and some will completely get you. Remember this. People can only come to the table with what they know. They cannot bring more of themselves until they know themselves. “Know your worth, own your worth, live your worth.” Speaking your truth will shine a light on another so that they can see their own truth. None of us is perfect and all of us are amazing in our own way. Trust your gut and do what is right for YOU. If you are struggling with your relationships, your self esteem and want to transform your life in 2019 send me a message. Coaching with me will transform you. #relationshipcoach#life#happiness#lifeistooshort#speakyourtruth#honoryourself www.imaginelifecoaching.ca email@example.com (no solicitors please)

NO NEW CLOTHES IN 2019
Have I gone completely batshit? 💥 Probably. Anyway. That’s the goal! Secondhand clothing only for 2019! (Besides things like underwear, socks, etc. but I don’t need any of those currently). Can I do it?! Who knows?! I’ll be writing a blog post to go over the goal in depth along with why I’m doing this and the problems with fast fashion soon! What do you think? Can I get by with only secondhand clothing for a year? 🤔
Lets talk comparison. ⚡️
I’m not talking about the comparison of others— I’m talking about comparing yourself to who you used to be, what you used to look like or how much you used to weigh. •
6 years ago, I was freshly married and was a solid 135 pounds at 5’2. I was fit and beautiful but unfortunately, I was lacking in the “self-love” department. Growing up morbidly obese, I would continuously pick myself apart about how “fat” and “ugly” I was. I was genuinely not comfortable in my own skin. Years later, I found myself sitting 40 pounds heavier, on a new health and weight loss journey to lose my “happy weight” but ironically, I am loving my body more than ever before... Not for what it looks like or how much it weighs but for what it does for me, on a daily basis. Self-love and acceptance is not an overnight thing, y’all— I’ve been working on it for 6+ years and I still have bad days.
In short, I just want to leave you with this: It’s so easy to look back at old pictures and say, “Look at how pretty I used to be.” Or “Look at how skinny I was.” I mean, you wouldn’t be human if you didn’t... And heck, it’s completely ok to look back and reminisce about the past but what’s not ok is to stay STUCK on it. It’s not like you could hop in a time machine and undo the mess you’ve made. Instead, focus on the positives. Focus on how much you’ve grown and how much stronger you’ve gotten. Focus on what you can do today to be better than you were yesterday. It’s true when they say that comparison is the thief of joy. Kick that loser to the curb— he’s toxic. Love ya! 💋
Sitting down at the computer this morning came a little easier for me this morning, I don't always spring out of bed after a late night out with a friend.
I actually couldn't get to sleep right away because I was thinking how many women out their need the work I do. I am writing out my thoughts right now.
WOMEN - if you are unhappy, hurting, scared in your marriage it is HIGH TIME that you find help, it is time that you quit faking that you are happy, and it is time to heal the pain inside so that you can shine again. 🦄
Because she, you, the women you know yourself to be IS inside of you. Nobody can steal that from you unless you allow it...
And let me tell you - you might not know what that means, you might think "screw you Petra, you don't know what I have been through..." ⚡⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What I am saying is there is "stuff" there for you to look at. 🧘♀️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Your soul is saying free me - let me express myself - let me shine and live a beautiful life and feel LOVE!!!
Too many times I hear women going through tough times in their marriage and they want out. It doesn't have to be that way. Mind you the man needs to get to work as well (they may be resisting it - but deep down, they want to be loved too at a real level...not only sexually, they want help, they want to be set free).
IT IS TIME - I CAN NOT be quiet any more - Ladies come to my Nourish Program - it starts in January. We will be working on our self-care and it will be fun, and liberating!!! If you want more message me ;)
I am not gonna stop there - if your man has been looking for some kind of help my husband, G (Gary), has just opened a very similar program only for men. Again contact me for details.
Phew I think I will talk about some of the changes we need to make in IGTV...soon so look for it to get a head start on going inward.
Blessings to you all!!!!
“The wound is the place where the Light enters you.” -Rumi
By far my favorite poet is Rumi. How profound he was. It’s our wounds that make us human. It’s our wounds that make us beautiful. Don’t hid from them. Honor them because they are part of your story. The more we embrace our wounds with loving compassion the more whole we become. .

A snapshot of my journey home. 💫This year in particular has been full of personal challenges of grounding in difficult spaces. Yet, through the obstacle course of life, I still find home within, all sorts of wanderlust and salty. .
This particular moment started with an over 20 hour long drive to spend time with one of my most favorite people of all time...journeying back to a space where I finally made time to process, express gratitude and release over 70% of my worldly "things". This has been so incredibly grounding, uncomfortable, healing and freeing! Thank you for your simple, yet impactful lessons @mariekondo 🙏🏽
I never realized how my "things" dragged with me mentally in my travels all around the world, even while living out of a carry-on bag for 8 months.
Space in your life is precious, so only allow that which brings you joy, not that which brings you back to the past. Life is truly here and now. I'm absolutely loving this life I'm creating for myself. I'm learning how to "UnBe" all that is no longer me, and fully grow into me, who I am today, listening to my passions of now and taking those challenging steps to strengthen from within. .
It's not easy, but it's damn rewarding.
Do the work for you...your soul is calling for you to listen.
We’ve all classified or have been classified as “emotionally scarred” in some way, right?•
I’ve been so deeply interested by the idea that my emotional body and physical body are much more connected than science has come to understand - and with that comes intense potential for healing.•
Generational healing, emotional healing, energy healing, physically healing - I want it all.•
I’ve been feeling this pull to combine science and metaphysics into my practices - as an empath with anxiety, I question everything - and when there is no answer?•
I go searching.
