Since reading my new favourite book “Tantric Intimacy, Discover the Magic of True Connection” by my lovely friend Katrina Bos @mylifeofexploration I had the urge to get out my angel cards. This book is just beyond amazing. It talks about true connection and intimacy with yourself and in turn, it can only exist when both partners are completely living their true and authentic life. That just briefly touches on what the book is about. I learnt so much about myself by reading this book and can’t wait to use what I’ve learnt in my day to day life, personally and sexually. Tantric Intimacy is my new motto. You need to read it!! So that being said, I got my cards out and asked them a pretty specific question about my personal life right now and this is was my answer. ❤️❤️❤️

Can you guess by our faces who cracked the joke!? Haha Yeah that’s me & these are my people. My beautiful girlfriend & our great friends. 😊 Life is good. Love is real & we all are one great happy friend family! -
You know something - relationships have been the number one key that has helped my life become a wonderful one!
If it wasn’t for relationships I am not sure if I would have as much fun as I do. Now I know there are some of you out there who hate relationships Bc of the poison that some bad relationship left in your heart. I was there. I had the poison too. I closed up my heart and by doing so I closed myself off to wonderful people, friends, my family & even my God. -
Don’t allow yourself to close up your heart Bc someone has hurt you. For all you are doing is closing yourself up to the one thing your heart wants more of.... Love & deep relationships. -
I made the mistake and closed myself up. But then I made the powerful switch to open my heart back up and now I am happier & in deep love with my best friend @nicolepgh and have a wonderful friendship with @pittfanzane77 and @taraariddell -

Incredible weekend. Amazing group. So much love. Wow we are so so grateful for @sugar_ridge and their delicious food and hospitality and for each and every soul that joined us! There was yoga, meditation, chanting, fire ceremonies, lots of laughs, a few tears, hugs, discovery, breakthroughs, new friends and a little bit of wine too!! Can’t wait until the next one....who’s in?!
Been a little cranky these last few days & not sleeping great. I blamed it on a dozen different things, but while reading Julia Cameron’s Walking in The World this morning, I realized it’s because I’ve been creatively blocked. Right there, in her chapter about balance, she told me to go somewhere pretty, somewhere I feel inspired. Ten minutes later... #fingerscrossed#openness#fountainpencommunity#viscontihomosapiens#YardOLed
Daily reading for the 19th of August:
You might feel yourself retreating, holding back and not letting your truth be seen by others. Maybe you dont want others to see it, or maybe you feel like they dont want to. The right people will always want to understand and accept all of who you are.
If you do have these people in your life, it is time for you to share and open up to them. To trust that they can receive you.
If you dont know these people, it is time for you to start looking for them, and in that sense open up to new friendships with people you trust enough to practice this with.
Either way, you will have to take the risk to open up and let other see you in order to experience happiness and belonging.
This is scary, I know. But you can do it - in fact you truly deserve it! ❤️
Bravo if you get this! 👏👏
Comment and share with a friend on how you do this! 🍀♥️
Do you need a reason to feel confident about yourself? Marianne Williamson puts it perfectly in her book "A Return to Love".
The peace that we are looking for is not peace that crumbles as soon as there is difficulty or chaos... Whether we’re #seeking inner peace or global peace or a combination of the two, the way to experience it is to build on the foundation of unconditional #openness to all that arises. Peace isn’t an experience free of challenges, free of rough and smooth, it’s an experience that’s expansive enough to include all that arises without feeling threatened. I read #HuangPo said: “The foolish reject what they see, not what they think. The wise reject what they think, not what they see.” Also, "All things, all circumstances that occur outside ourselves, on the stage of this world, are exclusively the #reflection of what we carry within. With good reason then, we can solemnly declare that the 'exterior is the reflection of the interior.' When someone changes internally and if that change is #radical , then circumstances, life and the external also change." - #SamaelAunWeor#Thoughts#Quotes#Perspective#Perception#81818#81#818#18#18 ironically I’m going #18Dummy#Hyphy#BayArea#SplashArt#PurplePorn#Eighteen#Salmeron
My new blog post is up 💌
Openness is a way for us to release everything that's underneath us. May it be a bad habit, a way of education and learning, it's a free access to anything and everything that interest you. It's a way of being free.

I actually 🙌🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽🙌🏽 clapped after I read this and press releases (link in bio) on Filimon Vela's webpage. I was nicely surprised by a phone call from their office last week. Now I have a list of grassroots orgs. to be able to follow reality of my surroundings. And maybe also give our community an understanding with information of an idea that when people can work, move, live, flourish, we all grow. We all benefit. Thank you #FilimonVela#office and staff. Cue Kesha @iiswhoiis "Praying" . We should be. And putting our free will action to use. The volume signaled así -
💫Mercury Rx in Leo sextile Venus in Libra.
💫Mercury stations to go direct in Leo
💫Jupiter in Scorpio trines Neptune Rx in Pisces
💧💧💧 An ese and flow when Mercury meets up with Venus, communication, compromise and understanding can come. You gain some clarity, insight in a review or asking question about situations in your life.
➡️➡️➡️➡️ Mercury Direct, movement forward, with a true expression of what you have learnt during the Rx period. It brings some clarity, progress in area of communication, information, plans, travel all of Mercury themes. Leo, your identity may be envolved, tap into the part that needs to shine more. Let yourself go and glow.
🦁🦁🦁 Last of the trines between Neptune(dissolves boundaries) and Jupiter (expansion). A push forward in an area of life, you should know by now which way you are going or a way to go, the aspects today and yesterday have given you some insight to all that is going on. The 3 trines have been a push-off to something new, they have hopefully pulled you further enough along to get you to the place of the path of least resistance and to open up.

Crying is an extremely beneficial physiological process. When we cry we release resistant energy which is often trapped in the body. As children we are sometimes told to 'man up' and 'get on with it' because this was the societal expectation of our ancestral lineage.
This however is a recipe for disaster and sends great numbers of the population (particularly males) into a state of emotional turmoil later in life. Why? Because when we are young children and our emotions are invalidated the pain of such an experience does not simply go away.
Because we are unable to process or make sense of the pain at the time it occurs... the only option we have is to suppress it. When we are triggered in adult life we come face to face with the unresolved emotional pain and often we have completely lost touch with where it came from.
Crying is an extremely intelligent and powerful process which is a natural by-product of feeling, releasing and letting go of painful thoughts and emotions.
So don't hold back the river and let go of holding onto pain.
You are more loved than you could ever know. - Jordan 💚
“Sometimes in life were wanting to make steps forward but there’s seems to be something pulling us back.
The human consciousness is an interesting device, in that the brain is learning all the time. And the the brain’s primary job is to make sure you survive so it’s always looking what to protect you from.
Very often in life we have an experience and we react to that experience. It’s like a muscle contracting, but then we keep it contracted, we never, once it’s safe, let go again. And it limits what we can experience in our life.”
- Tony Robbins
Intense Side Stretch Pose (Parsvottanasana):
Stand in Tadasana. With an exhalation, step or lightly jump your feet 3½ to 4 feet apart. Rest your hands on your hips. Turn your left foot in 45 degrees to the right and your right foot out to the right 90 degrees. Align the right heel with the left heel. Firm your thighs and turn your right thigh outward, so that the center of the right knee cap is in line with the center of the right ankle.
Exhale and rotate your torso to the right, squaring the front of your pelvis with the front edge of your mat. As the left hip point turns forward, press the head of the left femur back to ground the back heel. Press your outer thighs inward, as if squeezing a block between your thighs. Firm your scapulas against your back torso, lengthen your coccyx toward the floor, and arch your upper torso back slightly.
With another exhalation, lean the torso forward from the groins over the right leg. Stop when the torso is parallel to the floor. Press your fingertips to the floor on either side of the right foot. If it isn’t possible for you to touch the floor, support your hands on a pair of blocks or the seat of a folding chair. Press the thighs back and lengthen the torso forward, lifting through the top of the sternum.
Be sure to soften the front-leg hip toward the earth and away from the same-side shoulder while you continue squeezing the outer thighs. Press the base of the big toe and the inner heel of the front foot firmly into the floor, then lift the inner groin of the front leg deep into the pelvis.
Hold your torso and head parallel to the floor for a few breaths. Then, if you have the flexibility, bring the front torso closer to the top of the thigh, but don’t round forward from the waist to do this. Hold your maximum position for 15 to 30 seconds, then come up with an inhalation by pressing actively through the back heel and dragging the coccyx first down and then into the pelvis. Then go to the left side.
On yesterday my mind just started to reminisce on just the past couple of years. Who would have thought that after traveling to such a beautiful place, connected with beautiful people @ladydork #detachwithdork retreat to open my eyes, come back and just soar into my purpose. Officially holding my doctoral candidacy, beginning yoga teacher training in less than a month and so much more. Not taking I can’t or no for an answer. Not focusing on the past but learning and growing from the pass. Never underestimate your ability, never allow others to deter you from your passion, you want it, work hard for it and never give up 🔥🔥❤️❤️
Hey Philly, I’m subbing two classes this week. You can expect tuned-in breath, intelligent movement and conversation about boundaries, openness, and finding balance between these ever-present paradoxes. ✨

Right hand: Abhaya Mudra ✋• gesture for promising protection • boundaries, we need ‘em. On the mat and in relationship (with everything and everyone) This mudra assists in the flow of the fearless, stable process of setting good boundaries. Which is sometimes (ahem, most times) SO f💓cking hard.
Left hand: Varada Mudra 💕• gesture of granting mercy • being open enough to wield authentic connection with the world around oneself is essential for a rich experience in these bodies.
More on this in the studio. See you there ✨
PS: forever rocking my @emilydrinker tote. Follow her, listen to her, go see her live. Her voice will shake your soul into a higher vibration. So, you’re welcome. ✨ And yeah, I’m trying my hardest to #smize here. Am I doing it, @tyrabanks ? .
Let’s talk about pain 😣
Lostness, confusion, disconnectedness, numbness, being on autopilot.
Distracted from feeling, distracted from connecting with the emotions, and feelings hidden deep down in those dark places.
I usually don’t share things while I’m still in process. But in honor of showing up and trying to be my most authentic self, I thought I’d be vulnerable - because at the end of the day authenticity and vulnerability are priorities in my life, my friendships and my relationships.
Yesterday, on the ferry on my way into the San Francisco to meet my love and some friends for dinner. I was having a
m o m e n t.
(I’ve been doing some deep internal work and these moments cannot be predicted)
I felt the wave of emotions rush in. My thoughts spinning and I had to make a decision. Lean into the uncomfortable unknown, scary moment.
OR - distract it away - scroll through IG, check my email, hop on FB, listen to a book on tape ... anything not to feel the pain, lost, confused, uncomfortable.
But when this kind of space and work is a part of the calling on your life, you surrender. So I sat with it, tears steaming down my face.
And then I noticed I couldn’t hold this space on my own (maybe at home where I could have feel to my knees in a Kim K ugly cry - but not on the ferry). So I picked up the phone and called someone who I know could hold the space I needed. Who loves me no matter how long it’s been since we’ve talked. Who’s been through her own darkness. You works daily to stay in the light.
Falling into the darkness, the numbness, that place of autopilot is so easy these days (at least for me) the more disconnected I allow myself to become... the longer it takes me to notice I’m off course.
If you can relate- nothing is wrong with you. Your human. (You’re not an animal who can’t experience and express full ranges of emotions)
This human life of yours if a gift. And yes sometimes it’s painful, and confusing. The longer you numb and walk through life on autopilot the deeper the disconnection becomes.
Give yourself grace, ask for support, allow yourself to experience your feelings and emotions that’s truly living....👇🏼
Back to the marriage. To the vows. To the flowers being crucial. Then fast forward a few years. Sitting down with your better half and finding yourself saying.. ' I knew you right. we got married..used to have a little bitta afternoon delight. What have you been doing? It's great to see ya, but jesus you've aged'. Sound familiar???? Oh the pounding a marriage can take when a tiny human comes on the scene. But there is a light and when it shines it's like a brand new feeling. I call it the '12 month mark'. Wayne and I are in that sweet spot now. Freddie is napping and sleeping, so when the boys are in bed it's our time. To chat, to eat, to laugh, to drink and just feel like Jenny and Wayne again. We are two individuals in our own right. We are people with our own personalities, our own hopes, desires, expectations.
We are relaxed and we are happy.
The early days of parenthood are very hard and it can be surprising how your relationship is forgotten about. But keep it in mind. You will get back to it, just be patient and be kind. And most importantly talk about it. I remember sitting next to Wayne, looking at him saying the words 'I miss you'. Sounds ridiculous, but its true.
💜открытость и откровенность💜
🔱да, именно об этих двух качествах пойдет речь в этом посте. Возможно сейчас вы подумаете, что это абсолютный бред и зачем этому посвящать целый пост, но нет же, в современном мире очень нужно говорить об этом
🔱для начала хочу передать привет всем людям, которые считают, что эти фотографии слишком откровенны, сексуальны и прочее🖐мне абсолютно все равно, что вы там думаете обо мне сейчас, я такая какая я есть и не вижу смысла как-либо оправдываться перед вами за то, что вы считали меня другой
🔱ну а теперь к сути. Как вы относитесь к тому, чтобы открываться людям? Каверзный вопрос, не так ли. Сейчас ты наверное сидишь и думаешь о том, что это правильно и круто, когда ты честен перед человеком и открыт, но как оказалось нет
🔱жизнь столкнула меня с тем, что в некоторых случаях это абсолютно неверный ход. Ты открываешься, доверяешь, а тебя используют, воспринимают за вещь, за игрушку. Но ведь при всем этом ты думаешь, что это лишь защитная маска человека и на самом деле он не такой
🔱в общем, я даже не знаю теперь насколько я правильно поступала, открываясь полностью перед людьми.
💜что думаете вы по этому поводу?💜
THE GUEST HOUSE.
This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they are a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still, treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.
The dark thought, the shame, the malice.
meet them at the door laughing and invite them in.
Be grateful for whatever comes.
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond. – Rumi
This is one of my favorite poems. #deeptruth .

Don't let others judgement rub off on you. Don't judge others for just being themselves, expressing their authenticity and most of all dont judge because someone is different than you. Such a great reminder even for myself. Oh, and don't judge yourself based on other peoples perceptions. Shine your beauty from the inside out. ❤
What an amazing message this artist continues to spread. When you start to judge someone ask yourself to look a little deeper. See if you can figure out why, what’s coming up for you. What part of them are you judging and how is that also a trait or a part of you that maybe you haven’t dealt with yet. Dig deeper. We all judge from time to time, try to explore behind the judging. Judging keeps us separated. Separation might feel safe but it causes pain. ⠀
