When I'm fired up doing my favorite things--going IN on creating my purpose work💃... Magically my sugar cravings vanish.✨ This holiday (plus snow days) though, I've been saying yes to all the yummy treats.
And it's OH so comfortable-- just like the video I shot yesterday (on my YouTube) with some way too practical advice for sugar cravings😬 #confession
When I finished I was like-- "ooh something was off". Something is still off and I'm definitely in the midst of a shift.
Time for some free writing and journaling.
The truth is... It's not always unicorns and rainbows especially when you're constantly evolving.
It's ok to saying a higher yes to out growing your comfort zone over all the holiday yumminess. 'Tis also the season for change.
Experimented dancing in these boots today. Verdict: nope. Experimented with the idea of not coming to dance today. Verdict: nope.
Some days, you do gotta rest that ankle. Some months you do have specific demands and you gotta switch that ritual. Some days your embodiment looks like not rushing it or pushing it and being in bed despite a promise. Makes the showing up even more luscious when you do again. .
As for me. It was three too many weeks without a @samallenswag_ class. Wasn’t gonna miss it.
Much love, Babies. Supreme Intuitive Embodiment Flow your way today and beyond.
This workshop I am looking forward to more than any other. Why? Well, making decision to focus my practice on working with women and young people only, was a big step. It was needed and it feels just SO right. This workshop, exploring all things feminine and womanly (which in 2019 seems like a lot of material to tackle!) was on my mind for a longer while. I am not practicing (in principle) from the feminist stance, nor was it my aim in designing these workshops to steer towards one perspective. We won’t be exploring or talking about women rights or men-women dichotomies. Actually, there won’t be that much talking at all (sorry!) • We will be taking a gentle approach to work with processes and cycles ever-present in our lives. We will work creatively with seasonally available, often natural, found materials, collage and textiles. Exploring contrasting textures, patterns and flow of repetitive methods and cyclic, meditative art methods • If you want to embark on a self-explorative, truly creative, mixed-media journey – connecting with and relating to yourself and other women, this workshop is for you • would love to know the maker of this image, but couldn’t find a reference, please help! •
Just a little FYI on this rainy summer Melbourne day. No one has ownership over your mind and body. That is YOURS. A little trick I was taught when dealing with disruptive people ( we all have to deal with disruptive people in life, we can’t unfortunately sit amongst marshmellows and fairies, but we can control their impact on us). So here’s what you can do after a negative engagement. Just dust it off. Literally, move your hands around your body, specifically near your heart, and dust all of their negative energy away. Then take a deep breath in, and EXHALE. Let it go. And then mOve. Move your mind and/or body towards a positive space that nourishes you because you deserve to feel loved and you are worthy. ❤️

Originality is key and usually I'm not that kind of person that copy someone else's style.
However this Lady is my inspiration and according to
Iris Apfel there is no How to road map to style.
It's about self expression and above all about attitude.
Last night I made an impromptu collage and journaled about my last 8 art pages. I'm on a roll so far, working in my sketchbook everyday.
To me, this collage is an illustration of the reflecting I did on the other pages and an invitation to more to come. The feeling I get with this is fear but excitement into the unknown. Day 9.
Over 4000 of you following my journey now? It’s truly incredible 🧡 Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart to all of you, you all inspire me and motivate me to be a better person every day and I love you 💖 #blessed#gratitude#4000

Learning emotional intelligence doesn't have to be awkward or weird. In our art and music programs our guides, who are trained in art therapy techniques, teach the students how to interpret different songs, helping them work through any emotions that may come up. #LighthouseAFx
• Ballet Kids 2 •
Wednesday | 5:00-6:00 PM
Exploring movement and self expression is important at all ages. This class prioritizes full body coordination, clarity in the positions without muscular tension or stress and finding freedom within the technique. We develop fundamental skills like awareness of space, time and composition, collaboration with others, and expanding personal expression within the ballet vocabulary. Our staff utilizes imagery as a tool to push past the form and more fully embody the movement. Our mission is to foster a space where each child can develop and grow without needing to fit into any ideal or standard. .
Love?! 🍎 I am truly, sincerely, unequivocally what they call - a sucker for love. But you see, I was taught the illusions of love. Thanks to our culture, or lack thereof. And that’s something I realize over reoccurring heart ache. No longer shall these misconceptions be imbedded in this age. Forced into healing and breaking bad habits. And I am tired of being quiet about it!
I’m sick of women being raised to await a fairy tale ending.
I’m sick of men being raised to suppress their emotion.
I’m sick of love being taken for granted.
I’m sick of it being solely for one’s advantage.
I’m sick of sex being ripped from its spiritual meaning.
I’m sick of all the lies, manipulation, and cheating.
I’m sick of using, abusing, and calling it love.
I’m sick of needing someone else to see from above.
And GOD! I’m sick of being called too much.
External ‘love’ does not fill emptiness. Love is not here to stroke the ego. And a bond of love is sacred and a gift to each and every one of us. May we all experience love in our lifetimes.
Henry Thoreau had it That government is best which governs not at all... Put less elegantly with regards to government less is more. It's not as if we don't have all the evidence we need that this is so. Brussels, please 'uck off, you are useless, counter productive, anti business, anti self expression, pro bureaucracy and pro unemployment.
With this shirt Diggy reminds us of George Orwell's take on the matter with her interpretation of Animal Farm, published at the height of "Uncle Joe's" social engineering. We can see today where this has landed Russia, it has a falling population and a GDP that is now lower than that of Texas.
Diggy's illustration is dyed into our CoolMax freshFX shirts at 720dpi and 1440dpi in full CMYK colour. Self, expression and enduring comfort are in the contract. Our shirts make perfect presents.

We all have our hobbies. Some hobbies are more expensive than others. Some like to paint, some like to collect stamps, and some like to build computers. Having a hobby is a very healthy outlet for everyone. It helps us to feel relaxed and stress-free from the world. It’s a way for us to express our creativity. It helps us build our confidence because there’s at least one thing in this world that we’re really good at.
As you can probably tell, my husband’s hobby is PC building and knowledge. I never understood why he was so adamant about building his own computer. I’m still learning. We all need a break from the world, and yes even a break from our marriage sometimes. If your spouse has a hobby that you don’t understand, be kind. Just because you don’t understand it, doesn’t mean that it’s wrong. Enjoying their hobby is a way to recharge themselves because we all need a break sometimes. Let them have their hobbies and try to take an interest as well. Hobbies sometimes turn into passions and when you see someone doing something they’re passionate about, you see a different side of them and learn to appreciate them in a more meaningful way.
What is a hobby of yours?

There are moments in life in which you are observing how it's moving, how you're being productive for it, how everything is progressing and you are even ok with your traumas and self acceptance level. And in that very moment, in the midst of it all you just stare at the window and ask yourself... Well... Life is just forward momentum and celerity... And stillness... And... You write the rest... 🌙🌨️
Love you all! ❤️
These last couple days have been consumed by writing.
I never realize how much I’m holding in until the dam breaks and I’m flooded with all this emotional yuck I’ve unconsciously been storing inside me.
It feels good to put it somewhere.
If feels good to get it O U T.
For years and years I resisted having my photo taken, or doing shoots or putting my image online - before there was even the concept of social media - it was something awkward, non-sensical and undesirable.
But I am an explorer of my hidden subconscious fears and I decided to try my life as a model, because I was super uncomfortable and judgemental.
Naturally I found great liberation, and got to observe the non-sensical nature of my own belief systems.
Naturally I had people hate on me because they don’t know what they don’t know about their own minds and confuse materialism, fashion, modelling with appreciation of beauty, power in self expression and freedom & capacity for creativity.
Embrace yourself, take selfies of yourself, embrace your inner narcissist, it’s all part of you and what makes you a human being exploring all of life.
The Tantric philosophy of life is essentially about embracing, about accepting with total equanimity, all of life, all the ways of being, all that happens.
When we do that, we are liberated. We accept ourselves and others more fully.
But it begins with self.
Since Iv opened up to the power of social media to communicate ideas and self-express, a meaningful comment was made by Brian Rose from London Real, during our Business Accelerator Training. He said, “put yourself out there, real service happens when you tell your story and bring value to people through that, and you will be fine, however it happens, just consider how some people can’t even smile. “
That hit home. I smile inside a lot. And outside too. I feel power of life and joy a lot of the time. So why should I be shy about being on camera and taking selfies, let’s spread that stuff.
So there you are, embrace yourself and share your own goodness with the world, embrace being beautiful, embrace expressing that beauty and power, and watch your life become better and better, as you attract what you are.
Do you feel like a beautiful person? Ask yourself that question.
