I had an autumn self love ritual day.
I gave myself an herbal facial and told the face looking at me she was beautiful and that more importantly the brain in that head was complex and intriguing.
I shaved off my body hair that had been growing since spring to symbolize change and letting go, just like the leaves are about to do.
I painted my toenails a deep jewel toned mystical purple to help me walk gracefully into the dark half of the year.
Make magick everyday.
Love yourself everyday.
Shadow Work - meeting the unconscious parts of us that we loathe or are afraid of, diving into our own darkness to create more light, acceptance, love and awareness within.
This incredible drawing is from a client last week who decided to draw her Shadow after our session - to honour it, meet it with acknowledgment and make it more approachable. Making friends with the unconscious darkness instead of fighting or running from it.
When we resist parts of us we don't like, they become scarier or have a stronger hold over us.
Exploring these parts with Shadow Work allows us to feel what they actually need and integrate them into power. Shadows are our best teachers to wholeness and compassionate, authentic, loving, empowered living. STOP running from yourself! .
When we feed our Shadows what they need, instead of resisting them, they become our friends.
If you're interested in exploring Shadow Work and learning to love ALL parts of you, I do 1:1 sessions in Perth.
Confession time! I spent a good hour in the bath/shower and used so many posh products. Dad was watching the little turkey downstairs and I thought, perfect time to #poshyoself so I did!
I used #lovethedark on my legs to help tackle my no see Um bites. Figured I'd try it since it has charcoal. I used my #genderbender chunk to wash from head to toe. #gritwithit to battle the dead skin on my feet (which are so smooth now). My #bff face wash and after I got out of the shower I used my #moisturize911 and #beachblanket#BFYHC . Now that's what I call #selfcare ! I took time for me and filled up my cup! What are you doing to #PoshYoSelf
It feels like we keep on chasing monotonous harmony - ignoring that the good cannot exist without the bad.
If good and bad always co-exist the magic trick becomes to keep falling in love with the uncomfortable. 🤓
