Normal is boring homies 🐇
Don’t trade in your authenticity for some false ideal of respect that was planted into your mind. If people don’t respect the real you, they won’t respect the mask you wear either! You know what I think? F*ck. All. Of. That. Just be you, give yourself room to explore who you are. There are no fences to pick sides from. There are no boxes to think outside of. It’s all blank canvas baby, and you have all of the tools you need to create whatever you wish inside of you. Go within and see for yourself.
>> BIKINI BODY <<
🏖 If you’d told my high school self that one day I’ll be comfortable wearing a two-piece bikini on a beach, I might have laughed 😅 I have a huge scar on my stomach from my childhood surgery due to a burst appendix, my tummy isn’t toned & chiselled, and it’s also generally a shade lighter than the rest of my body. •
But these days, I’ve learnt to turn off the side of my brain where I think people are looking or judging. Instead, I’ve focused on giving loving and kind thoughts towards my body. It’s just not right to speak to it with hateful words. Wearing a bikini to the beach still isn’t totally natural to me, but it’s an act of self-love and means so much more than just swim wear. When I bare my body in public, it’s saying to myself than I love my body enough to not be ashamed of it. •
Obviously I’m no Pamela Anderson running slow motion towards a camera 😂 But that doesn’t mean I’m not body-confident. Love your body no matter what stage of life you’re in. Don’t waste any more time hating it - we all know how fast one month or even one year can fly by … spend that time cultivating confidence & appreciation instead and watch how great life becomes 😊😍
How's everyone doing?! Thanks God it's Friday y'all ❤🙏❤ We are chillin' with tiger mint this morning with our daily burst of weekly truth reading from @shereadstruth Roman series.

P.S. Ask for a cup of tiger mint if you're interested, Rachel will gladly brew it hot for you 👫
when life throws you off on a downward path, know that you will be ok and that these anxieties and uncertainties will pass. be present. breathe. have faith in your resilience and keep your head up. #selfdiscovery
I first want to underscore that fear is a real emotion. However we cannot allow fear to cripple us to the point that we never reach our goals or manifest our destiny. Be afraid and still move forward. #dontletfearstopyou
Today would have been my 4 year wedding anniversary. As many of you know, we didn’t make it past a few months. And I used to judge myself HARD for that.😐
Each year, this date evolves for me.💛
The first year, I was shaking. I was in the process of my divorce and nervous to feel anything. I kept myself busy in San Fransisco with a dear friend. I wasn’t ready to FEEL anything yet. It sounded too scary and too hard.💔
The second year, I was in the jungle, on the beach, in southern Colombia, completely disconnected from the outside world. I woke up in my tent in the middle of the night sobbing. I was mourning my past but also feeling immense gratitude for the journey I was on. I spent the day journaling and embracing nature. 🌍
Last year, I was in the USA somewhere, perhaps visiting friends or family, but the day passed without much to report. I’m sure I acknowledged it, but I didn’t identify with it as much anymore.☀️
Today, I’m in Chile, and the date snuck up on me. I wasn’t anticipating it. I wasn’t dreading it. I wasn’t trying to avoid it. Now, I can simply appreciate it. I can see and FEEL the progress I’ve made over the last four years. And holy shit, have I come a long way.🙌
Since today symbolizes so much for me. I am honoring where I am at & reflecting on the process that got me here.🧘🏻♀️
I am honestly amazed at how much I’ve grown and changed since my divorce. Perhaps I will share a separate post on that soon.✏️
If you’re going through a divorce, breakup, or hard time, remember this: each day, each month, each year gets easier. I promise.🙏
Surround yourself with people who you can be yourself around. Seek out help through therapy and coaching. Make self-care a non-negotiable. Allow yourself to feel.💕
Be proud of yourself for getting through every single day.👏
Soon, you will look back and be AMAZED at how far you’ve come. You will realize how it all happened FOR you.💪
Today, I am sending extra love and gratitude to all my friends, family, coaches, & therapist. You’ve all helped me more than you even know.🧡

“I should be crying but I just can’t let it show.” Friday. 4am. Having a much needed cry 😢 while I listen to this beauty 🎧 As fellow #depression sufferers will know, when we are depressed we are not ‘sad,’ we are numb. We are childlike and shame-filled. So I’m enjoying this cathartic release. Depression is often the symptom of not having learnt how to express big emotions as children: for me anger and fear - such fiercely connected emotions which are easy to get mixed up. When an animal is afraid it scratches and growls, appearing angry when in reality it is protecting itself and possibly it’s young. Tonight is an important night in my process of self-discovery and healing. I’m feeling proud of myself but also grieving the loss of the three close friends from whom I’ve parted ways in the past 18 months, one in particular. I miss him everyday and hope he is happy 😊 (& possibly reading this) #midnightmusings#healing#selfdiscovery#release#peace#katebush

relationships are all around us. we are always in relationship to something be it our intimate partners, family, children,sisters, animals, our self, our body, our food/nourishment, business partners, mother earth, cosmos and even insta.......you got me🧐 always in relationship. i love what relationships offer.✨✨ it is the magical elixir of life that is forever a growing edge for our evolution as humans. 🚀
relationships are mirrors, each one a unique reflection of ourselves looking back. 👁
and each one holding its own unique alchemy. when i work with clients i experience the same sacredness~ a highly specific configuration, a coming together, a colliding of universes for a moment- to listen, assimilate, be curious, integrate and heal......all through relationship 🙏🏻 i am so very grateful for all the relationships in all their mysterious forms that have come until now, may there be many more and may i continue to remember their power. 💞a special shout 💋🖖🏼 to mr. north for keeping this serious scorpio goofy💞
I made a huge discovery about myself part way through my sweat session tonight. .
When I am not following a workout program, I tend to pick workouts that do not push me mentally or physically. .
I go for more easy or fun ones. Now I am not saying these are bad, because I am still off of the couch and burning some calories. BUT I know my body is capable of so much more! .
I am 31 days post OP today and I have been feeling amazing. I have no pain or discomfort or discharge from my incisions. .
It's time I go back to a program and pushing my body the way it wants to be pushed. .
How many of you do the same as me? Find the easy, the fun or just do not know where or how to start?
Do you go to the gym and hop on a treadmill or elliptical, spend a few minutes looking for something to watch then spend a few more going with the flow? .
Are you ready to change that🙋♀️?
Let's do this together!! Push ourselves, get real results!
Let me know⬇️ if you are ready for real change!
Mindset Inspiration: Behavioral economic theory says that losses are twice as painful as any corresponding gain. This leads to the status quo bias - where the current baseline is taken as a reference point, and any change from that baseline is perceived as a loss. If we follow this tendency for loss aversion, we will be completely paralyzed! One way to free ourselves from this mental trap is to become curious. Introduce small change into your life that does not take too much time, effort, or money. Don't just research the change, get out there! If you're thinking of changing careers, ask a friend who's in the field for coffee to ask questions. Next, reflect if that new experience resonated with you. If so, persevere by adding a little more change. If not, pivot into another possibility. "We are more often frightened than hurt; and we suffer more from imagination than from reality." -Seneca (a wealthy man who would regularly live as if all his money were stolen to combat loss aversion).
When I became aware about multidimensionality, I was fascinated. Then, after exploring more, I started experiencing this multidimensional process.
When I started healing myself, I found that healing is just not taking place within me but around me as well, in terms of my surroundings, people around me.
When I teach my students, I generally come across what I want to resolve.
When a bug or bee is around me at a particular moment, I find them secretly delivering a message to follow.
A particular tree fascinates me at times. .
Whole universe talks to you, because you are one.
We carry all the dimensions within us! Unfolding as a world around us. A feeling of tat tvam asi (I am you and you are I) arises when I feel this. It
Generates greater compassion, unconditional love and peace.
Dear friends, do what you love to do, sing, dance, write and rejoice. Always remember you are not doing it alone, somewhere somebody is getting a tuned with your frequency. You are impacting a few and sometimes all! As we are multidimensional beings💟💟
-Dhruvi Tat tvam asi
i think something innate to the human experience is that we like being in the presence of things more powerful than us. big booming thunderstorms, vast starry skies, a symphony orchestra overture... phenomena and experiences our brains don’t have the capacity to fully understand. these things remind us of how small we are in the big web of this world (and beyond). i think that especially living in a society where we put so much pressure on ourselves to achieve certain things or meet expectations, its comforting to feel like a single grain of salt in the sea. and that we are part of this incredible sea, part of these waves and whirlpools, just by existing.
⬆️September 2017, let’s reflect.
If someone told me a year ago what 2018 would bring, I would have laughed in their face. ➡️ Today I know the proper response would have been “thanks for the warning”
I was struggling. But why? I had a beautiful life. A nice home, a long-term relationship. We had a dog and great jobs. Well, I found the answer right before I made the gut wrenching decision to walk away from everything. .
Answer: I didn’t love myself anymore. I was lost. I lost touch of my values. I reached a breaking point. I wondered how the fuck did I let myself get to this?
March 2015 began the downward spiral. A traumatic childhood led me into adolescence w/ Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. PTSD greeted me again in adulthood one night shift in the ER. My little brother came in as a traumatic arrest. My world was crushed and I never got help. .
That’s where the part about the breaking point comes in. Over the years, everything I pushed into my subconscious eventually overflowed into my conscious, ALL AT ONCE. It was up to me to figure out how I was going to fix myself. A fire was lit under my ass and this is where my journey to self discovery began.
October 2018➡️Over the last year I have HUSTLED to heal, find clarity, and build a new life. I found myself and made new plans. I found new love that understands me completely, I purchased my dream property to bring my horses home to, I landed the full-time job I always wanted, I’m working on expanding my business under amazing mentors, and I’ve fixed my relationship with my family. My old life might have broke me, but the people in it built me and I will be forever grateful for those along the way.
My new life has still come w/ struggles. For example, tragedy struck again when I lost another little brother in August 2018, but rock bottom taught me lessons that I’ll never forget.
Swallow your pride. Get the help you need. Lean on your support system while you pick yourself up. Don’t fear starting over. In order to chase your dreams, you need clarity. But this all starts with YOU. Seriously, learn to love yourself.
Oh, and there’s NOTHING wrong with tattoos and a red hair phase.
How does Maur herself stay well? The key is finding a way to be present and happy in every moment you can! (Just don’t suppress your emotions when you need to heal.) I LOVE live music, so I went to a two day rock festival. I’m also practicing body positivity and self-love! (Usually not confident enough to show stomach skin. 😝) Just vibin’ and appreciating life itself, my ability to experience things, and being alive. 💖 I’m also including a photo of Gwar as I recommend them if you want to rock out and have silly fun. 🤘
