I want to know what you ache for. I want to know if you will risk looking a fool for Love, for your dream, for the adventure of being alive.
It doesn’t interest me what planets are squaring your moon.
I want to know if you have ever touched the center of your own sorrow, if you have been opened by life’s betrayals or have become shriveled and closed off from fear of further pain. I want to know if you can sit with pain, mine or your own, without moving to hide it or fade it or fix it.//oriah//
"The morning had dawned clear and cold, with a crispness that hinted at the end of summer" ~ George R.R. Martin in GoT
🇺🇸 Today marks the first day of fall also called the fall equinox. @pitvonkehr and I are busy chopping our wood for the coldness to come. On this day the northern and southern hemispheres experience an equal amount of daylight. For the southern hemisphere it means spring and for the northern it means fall. During the colder months our earth has time for healing which sets the soil for the spring. For us is it a time where we begin to spend more time indoors and more time with ourselves, time to reflect on the year, the good things and the bad and most important time to reflect on the lessons we've learned and activate our new growth from it.
🇩🇪 Heute ist der erste Herbstag der auch die Tag-und-Nacht-Gleiche genannt wird. @pitvonkehr und ich sind damit beschäftigt Holz für den Winter zu spalten. An diesem Tag bekommen die Nördliche Hemisphäre und die Südliche beide die gleiche Menge an Tageslicht. Für die Südliche Hemisphäre wird es Frühling, für die Nördliche Herbst. In den kälteren Monaten nimmt sich die Erde Zeit für Heilung um den Erdboden für den Frühling vorzubereiten. Für uns ist es eine Zeit in der wir mehr drinnen sind und mehr Zeit für uns selbst haben, mehr Zeit um über das Jahr nachzudenken, die guten und schlechten Zeiten und am wichtigsten die Lektionen die wir gelernt haben und um dadurch den Wachstum auszulösen.
It's baaaack! Comfrey healing salve in a convenient lip balm stick container for portability, but I will also offer in 5ml and 1 ounce glass jars. Just three ingredients - powerhouse comfrey-infused avocado oil, beeswax and lavender essential oil. I'm using it as lip balm right now because I can't breathe through my nose when I sleep - which is not at all awesome - and it healed my chappies in less than a day. Totally true, totally wow! AND totally nut free! Part of my 25% off September sale, too... Live link in my bio - www.etsy.com/shop/inyourfacestore
It's time, y'all. #timeforhealing#inyourface#inyourfacestore#knockoutskincare#smallbatch#handcrafted#pure#simple#fresh#healingsalve#comfrey#nutfree#avocadooil
A no agenda day is what I need today. My energy has been depleted through the last few weeks and I’ve been really busy with life. I give myself permission to do nothing and enjoying every single second of it💕🌈
Morning routine went swimmingly today! It’s Prep Week in the Self Love Project, so we’re setting up for success and gettin all our workouts, grocery lists, calendars, and self care practices organized.
What’s probs my fav ‘self care’ practice is reading personal development. Read to grow amiright?! Oh but trust me, I used to squawk at the idea of reading “self help” books, but I just had no idea they’d be filled with the tough love and strategies I need to in order to get my shit together n be who I wanna be 😆🙌🏼 there’s plenty of the soulful fluffy stuff too, which trust me my lil hippie self loves that too, but lately I’ve been really into Positive Pyschology. Here’s what I learned today:
Our brain is organized to act on what we predict will happen next, something psychologists call “The Expectancy Theory”. Take, for example, the reverse placebo effect🌿Japanese researchers blindfolded a group of students and told them their right arm would be rubbed with poison ivy. Turns out it was a harmless shrub, but all 13 of the students developed itching, boils, redness. And get this: on their left arm they rubbed actual poison ivy but were told it was a harmless plant. Only 2 of the students broke out in a rash🤯😳
So, in other words, the expectation of an event causes the SAME set of neurons to fire as though the event were actually taking place, triggering a cascade of events in the nervous system that leads to a whole host of real physical consequences⚡️When you think about your day ahead/all those meetings/your commute/your workout/the food you eat/that phone call you have/your downtime, are you setting yourself up to expect drudgery or fun and growth? #sciencerocks
This is my friend Alysa Claverie and her family. Alysa has an inspirational story that I love to share because she really hit a low point when she was living on food stamps and her daughter was fighting leukemia but within just a few years, her life completely changed. Her daughter has made great strides with her health and Alysa now earns a 5- figure monthly income. In her own words, here is her story: "It's hard to put into words just how much this year has changed my life, because of R+F!! I started just under 2 years ago, wanted and desperately needed an extra $500 a month. I didn't know anything of direct sales and thought I was too good for it! I was a school teacher. We were in the middle of the hardest 2 years of my life. I really had no energy or time to put into a new business. But there was something in my head telling me to go for it, that this could change our lives. And I have learned in life that if you don't take risks you never can make that change. And change is scary, but what did I have to lose?
My husband made $12 an hour when I started this biz. $1400 a month. We were on food stamps and medicaid. I bought a biz kit with returning Christmas gifts and selling items. I'm still amazed how you can start this biz, work hard, and use your paychecks to build a very successful business. I am forever thankful and of course very passionate about helping others do the same that I have.
But what did it take to get to the top and really create that change? It took hard work and sacrifice. I knew and remember thinking... what if we lived poor for another two years and I worked my butt off? Where could it take us? And if I fail, what did I lose? NOTHING!!!!"
Rodan & Fields changes lives by giving people beautiful skin but it changes lives in many other ways. It offers the opportunity to grow in confidence, to be supported in this journey by new friends on the team and to change your financial future. If this speaks to you, let me know.
[This is a unique story; for info re: typical results search ‘Rodan + Fields IDS.’]
Go ahead and tell me
That you know all I can be,
You’ve studied every droplet
Of my ever-changing sea.
But weren’t you ever taught
That seas are only where it ends?
The things that tell the story
Are the river’s twists and bends.
The ocean isn’t everything,
It’s part of it, of course,
But you cannot judge its currents
If you do not know their source
I make them slow And I photograph them even slower.
Now Im a Mother of two.
Time for now is limited but I wont stop I Just Will create slow.
LearniNG patience And how to surrender every single moment.
So Many little magic things in this slow proccess.
I honor it And thats my offering to this times of a great grandmother wisdom.
I am. I am.
I struggle with this storm going on inside my cocoon. The hurt. The anger. The disappointment. The revenge I want.
Ohhh, but the way I want to design that revenge. The day is coming. The beauty of a Butterfly.... The Queen that finds Dragons everywhere wishing to surrender.
I despise feeling this anger... this yearning for revenge. But even worse... will I feel safe enough to invest my heart, ever again? I cannot see such things right now. 💔 😔
In the Priestess Weel @urbanpriestess1 I am transitioning from the Wild Woman (I made my own shamanic drum, and spent more time naked dancing and loving my body) to the Medicine Women healing my body and soul in Greece. Yesterday we were surprised by so much care and love from our host in this beautiful amazing new villa that we booked in internet. This Greek beauty and her mom cooked homemade Greek food to welcome us. This morning again they made a delicious breakfast with so much love! Then I realized the powerful medicine of good food! Swimming in the ocean. And be in this magical place surrounded by many Gods and Goddesses... So much healing here and now! That is so great to be synchronized with the power of our archetypes and The Goddess. Thank you Great Mother for your Medicine! 🙏🏼❤️💕 #timeforhealing#healyourself#healyourbody#homemadefood#greece#greekfood#goddesses#weeloftheyear#urbanpriestess#medicinewoman#healing#heilung#gutesessen#göttinnen#entspannung
When the world brought you into my life I didn't know how blessed I was going to be❤️ you Cody are definitely the best thing in the world and being by my side the last 3 weeks dealing with my pain and me being moody your definitely a god sent.

Michigan rollin out the fall feels and I’m stoked I finally get to wear this blazer I found at @hm during Labor Day sales! 😆 who else scored over the holiday??
Team Call Night! And yours truly is hosting it solo. These things used to make me feel like crying or peeing my pants, but I feel so honored and excited to chat with the coaches on my team. Yes we talk and business and brainstorm, hence this lil business outfit haha, but often I get so much more out of chatting with them about lifestyle, relationships, wellness, personal growth, goal making, and mental health. Because that’s really the foundation of what we do as health coaches. Yes, we help others on their fitness journeys, but that starts with where we ourselves are at physically and emotionally. Crazy amazing that that’s what our job and being successful at it comes down to. You ready to join our team yet?? I’d love to show you more about it💪🏼🍃

If The rate of Autism keeps happening as it is today by 2032
1 out of 2 kids will have autism... There are toxic chemicals in everything. Chemicals in our food, our water, cleaning supplies, plastics, home goods, the air we breath. Our bodies are bombarded all day everyday.
And people except being sick as normal. It doesn’t have to be this way.
I can’t control everything around me but I can control what I put in my body in the form of foods and body products.
Keeping informed, being aware and making conscious informed choices.
I’ve partnered with an organic superfoods company that is changing lives. We have the first ever product proven to remove glyphosate from the body and repair damage done to the gut.
We can heal our bodies when we give our bodies what they need through detoxification and high quality nutrition.

Sometimes you need to rest and listen to your body. Today I have to listen and learn quite a strong lesson.
Few days ago after surfing I felt a big pain in my back, first I thought it was just muscular contraction and it would go with a little bit of yoga and herbs to relax. It did for a few days until the pain came back even stronger. After a visit to the hospital it looks like I broke a little piece of my L1 vertebra.
So the message was pretty clear for me it's time to settle and rest for a while in order to get better and I am pretty happy it happens in lisbon. Maybe life is giving me the final push i needed to move here ☺️ As a therapist i now see injuries as an opportunity for growing and to learn better how to help people with the similar conditions.
I then won't be able to travel to come back to paris for Ecstatic Dance paris and my good friend @avyoumk will replace me to share with you his amazing music. I also won't be able to take back my yoga classes in paris but I thanks to @apariciotk i have an awesome replacement !
Now time for #healing#resting and focusing on #therapies#lisbon#healthylifestyle#timeforhealing
Healing can sometimes be a longer journey than anticipated and it can take many twist and turns ... each designed to remind ourselves about the importance of our commitment to self-care. As someone who deals with chronic back and neck pain, I have learned the importance of the daily commitment to movement (Pilates, yoga, walking, etc), CBD oil, healthy clean eating, meditation, journaling and intention-setting. These practices and daily rituals are part of a much bigger puzzle on my own path to healing and I love sharing my knowledge with others. I am sure that this is part of my greater purpose and contribution on this planet! This is why I am so excited to be teaching my next CIJ course starting in Oct! It is so therapeutic!!! Did you know that the Creative Insight Journey course was taught to the families of the victims of 9/11? Research shows that those who participated were able to catapult back into life much quicker than those who did not. #healing#healingprocess#time#timeforhealing#self -care #recharge#dailyrituals#Pilates#Pilatesinstructor#yoga#movementheals#meditation#journaling#intentions#creativeinsightjourney#cijourney
Well, I’m supposed to be in Iceland right now but decided to cancel the trip. My body said no more 😌
The past couple years as a nomad has been fun - SO much fun! - but it’s time to rest & heal now. Perfect timing to find this sweet little piece of earth to borrow. I also start a survival school in a week! It’s a year-long, full-time course here in Washington that covers wilderness survival, Stewardship, permaculture, self-sustainability. I’m beyond stoked to see what I will learn, who I will meet, & where it’ll take me 😊🐾🍃 #almosticeland#timeforhealing#survivalschool#thankyougibill
Feeling a little happier today. Grief is a slow process of Self Care, allowing yourself time to work through thoughts and emotions but not creating space for self pity.
Those gone beyond do not wish us to suffer, its now time to be grateful for those precious memories and move forward. One day at a time.
I am blessed to be supported by a strong family and some special friendships that I treasure.
You don't need lots of people in your life, just the right people.... Blessings
The Wayward Path
Wow! Your guys’ outpouring of good vibes and support after my post yesterday has been super sweet 💗and a lot of you have asked what I’m up to now and are wondering what this coaching gig really is🧐
So! I’m very excited to tell you that THIS WEEKEND I will be teaming up with a couple other coaches from our community and we’ll be sharing our very different journeys that led us each to this opportunity, and how we’ve each been able to make it work in beautiful ways for our busy lives!⚡️
And I can safely say that TIME and MONEY and EXPERIENCE were the biggest things that intimidated us when we were newbs (and probably whats got you hesitating too, we started from scratch and a little nervous too!), so we’re going to bust those false fears and get into the nitty gritty, no holding back deets of what we do, what it takes, and how long it takes. (Spoiler alert: it’s all up to you cause you’re your own BOSS, and you get a ton of support 😉)
Oh. And it’s a free. No strings attached. And you can drink wine and snuggle your dog while we go live in our exclusive facebook group🙌🏼
Sound good?? Send me a message, or if your hands are already full with a wine glass and a puppy, drop your fav emoji below!! 🍷💪🏼🌱
