I love my beautiful sistars and their radiant and playful selves!⠀
All of which have been refined over and over in the fires of the beloved, who have allowed their small selves to be humbled by Him and who stand confidently in the knowing of their true Self and divinity. ⠀
I love and am grateful for how we hold space for each other’s truths, emotions and experiences with ease and grace, our vulnerability and rawness welcomed in all their manifestations with empathy and humor, always elevating our thinking, feeling and vibrational frequencies with joy, playfulness and pure love. ⠀
There is no space for tone policing or spiritual bypasses and “guidance” directed at each other aka keeping one's egoic repression and avoidance of feelings in place and if we fall in such a trap we confront and laugh at the wiles of the ego and the beauty of our messy humanity.⠀
My soul sistar reminded me once again that we cannot truly talk consciousness with the unconscious but the most deaf and impervious to reason and truth are those who deem themselves conscious in their bypass of their uncomfortable and painful emotional reality. ⠀
It is a blessing beyond words to be surrounded by those who keep a constant awareness and keen eye on themselves and the bullshitting ways of their ego and support me in my alertness. ⠀
It is an immeasurable treasure and bliss to be surrounded by beautiful stars in human form, dancing with them in the oneness, dualities and multidimensionality of our shared experience and laughing at silly games humans play in the absurdity of taking life too seriously... all of which gives this life so much more depth, lightness, playfulness and richness.⠀
How blessed I am to have all of these amazing women and my extraordinary brothers in my soul family and tribe!⠀
Happy Tuesday! 🙂 My goal this week is to get some sort of workout in each day. I love working out from home but some days getting to the gym and picking up weights is the best feeling 😆
I have my meals planned for the week and a plan! I may have had too much food and drinks out this weekend but it’s back on track 👊🏼
What kind of goals do you set for the week?? 🤔
Feeling pretty productive today and it’s only 10am!
Got my workout in this morning at 6AM, followed by a one hour walk. Then came home, ate breakfast, showered, did my hair?!? Who am I?
Off to run some errands. Have a wonderful day!
M E D I T A T I O N 🧘🏼♀️ The practice of meditation is something I find very difficult to do. When I first became aware of all the benefits there is to mediation, I thought to myself how easy it would be to sit in silence and quiet the mind for mere minutes of the day. Little did I know, my mind is full of chatter. Instead of feeling at peace after trying it out, I felt defeated and a little awkward. How could I be so bad at something which looks to be so easy to do? Well the truth is, this kind of work is not easy. Self work is not easy. I am learning to hold space and have patience with myself. That it is perfectly okay to let the mind wander, and embrace all the feelings and emotions that come up. Meditation can be done in so many different ways. There is never just one right way of doing anything. This is the year I dedicate to creativity. Finding the path that works for me even if I have to create a totally new one. I believe nothing grows from comfort zones so choose to step out of yours as much as possible 🌸

The conflict between what one is and who one is expected to be touches all of us. And sometimes, rather than reach for what one could be, we choose to comfort of the failed role, preferring to be the victim of circumstances, the person who didn't have a chance -Merle Shain #qouted 🌴
Success brings change, and change is uncomfortable. But by attempting to achieve one challenge at a time, we redefine success for ourselves and those around us. As I become more comfortable with my accomplishments, I learn that success doesn't have to pull, tug, or chafe if we wear our real size. Failure stretches us beyond our conscious capacity so that we can grow into our authentic selves. This is Gods generous gift. In life, the worst thing that can happen isn't failing. It's never having tried. ”see yourself in that light, smart people can never fail.” double the size of your dreams create space for a #lifestyle based on authentic success. 😊🌴 #thejourney#journaling -#simpleabundance#FDVLifestyle
