TBT- The Book of Times 🙂 Thank you Jesus for GROWTH. 💯Stop explaining yourself to people all the time: some people will not just reason with you. They are loyalists to their own level of perception alone. They won't understand you even if you pull out your heart for them. #Stayhappy#Happypeople#Stopcriticism#Togetherwerise

This week I have been receiving an abundance of love from a handful of individuals I haven't talked to in years. One of them is a sweet soul that I had the privilege of growing up with and she let me know how I have been her role model and saved her life.
This wasn't the Sunday morning message I had expected from anyone. But I held so much gratitude in my heart for knowing she was okay (I didn't know she was struggling) and that I actually had left an imprint on her despite the years that have gone by.
I still find it hard to wrap my head around these words but it warms my heart to know that people do resonate with my story, energy, and the content I share. It means more than anyone would know and every message feels like it's the first. Gratitude for everyone who has stood in my corner and shared their heart with me.
Moments like these remind me why I do what I do and why I love it so much. "You will remember how someone made you feel even if you can't remember what they said. "
Food for the soul... and as a did my nightly reading this really put things into perspective for me. I understand we are living in another time and as things change people change to. Unfortunately what i will never come to understand is how any act of kindness, love, humanity is seen as a gesture of complete foreign behavior. What happen to chivalry? Men opening doors, pulling out chairs, walking their lady to the door before kissing her good night. What happen to being able to ask your neighbor for some sugar or cup of milk? What happen to looking out for one another, fighting to keep our relationship together and strong no matter what crosses its path? What happen to loyalty and commitment? In a world where all seems chaotic to me at times I still find myself smiling and wondering in daze why such little things and gestures still make me smile. Just like that when all seems dark, flooded, overwhelming, dry , & vacant something, someone always is sent my way to remind me to find the light. Don't let society's evil destroy the the goodness and purity of your heart. #siempresaleelsol#free#blessed#humbled#grateful#fullfilled#happy#liberated#fly#soar#dream#faith#givethanks#kindness#humanity#humility#compassion#love#togetherwerise
Last night felt as exciting as christmas whilst my hubby ripped into his new @wearephnx tees delivery!
Free shipping Australia wide and damn did they arrive fast! We have been rather distracted with my beautiful aunts funeral and my appts so the parcel has been sitting here for a few days waiting for hubby to actually notice it.
The shirts came in the coolest boxes and were individually wrapped in Phoenix tissue paper with a Phoenix seal on them each. Also loved the personalised touch of the enclosed note of thanks!
I will add some pics later after I attend 2 more appts.
I purchased them for hubby but was wondering if they may actually fit me as I fell in love with the blue long sleeved 'thrills over fear' tee.....they have the most wicked long sleeves (i usually find things are too short for me) and thumb holes which is something I absolutely love in tops!! With a lil help (as my shoulders and arms have been playing up) I tried it on and it fits perfectly over the girls lol and was nice and comfy. I struggle with sleeves due to my CRPS and allodynia but this has part spandex in the material and it was actually tolerable which is a huge plus....and means that there is a very good chance I will be stealing all hubbys Phoenix tops!! Yayyy for moi!
How do we make a world where young women are less afraid to speak up and to act out than we are? Malala Yousafzai sets an example I can learn from. Bravery is being afraid and speaking out despite that fear. Living in America today, it is scary to raise your voice, to raise your head. These men, they are dangerous. They killed a woman in Charlottesville, they go to rallies and then go home and film themselves waving their guns and mouthing the slogans they heard at the rally. Not all men are dangerous. But enough of them are. They shot a young girl on a bus and didn’t care that they hit two others. Malala is all of us. Standing up to powerful men is dangerous. But we must.
Let’s get to it people! @nybongiovi speaks on it below. #imin#Repost @nybongiovi with @get_repost
There are a lot of conversations about if non-Asians should support #crazyrichasians “because Asians/Asian-Americans aren’t kind to Black and Brown people.” I get it. I’ve experienced/witnessed it in my culture. I continue to fight it and be the bridge to link us all together through culturally significant movies. We are stronger together in shifting the paradigm in media, politics and entertainment. Whether this is your type of movie or not, it’s a breakthrough to have a big studio-backed, all Asian cast that aren’t demeaning stereotypes — Stereotypes that made me ashamed to be Asian when I was kid growing up in America. I have so much love for my Black and Brown brothers and sisters that you have my word that I’ll continue to fight the good fight through producing content with authentic lenses, and combat injustices and inequalities with any influence that I have✨...Now, I’m gonna go celebrate this movie so my daughter wouldn’t have to go through what I felt growing up...This is progress 🤗 Much love!! ✊❤️ Oh, #sorrytobotheryou is still in the theaters, so if you haven’t seen it yet, please tag yourself so we can have a convo. #strongertogether#goldopen#representationmatters#solidarity#togetherwerise

Hey #BATTLEBORNE Community. So one of the things that's been helping us fulfill our Mission is our partnerships. Check out our friends @jtf22tozero. We are proud to work with them. Our Missions are similar. They are a virtual ear and shoulder that encourages people to reach out and know they’re not alone. Check them out! #TogetherWeRise#JTF22toZero .
“If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe then man would only have four years to life left. No more bees, no more pollination, no more plants, no more animals, no more man.” - Albert Einstein- 🐝
Bees pollinate 80% of flowering plants on Earth and about 75% of fruits, nuts, and vegetables grown in the US. One single bee colony can pollinate 300 millions flowers each day and almonds are totally dependent on bee pollination. No bees, no almonds, also, avocados, apples, and cherries are over 90% dependent on bee pollination. (Source: National Honey Board). By growing our own food, and supporting local farms and companies that is dedicated to the improvement of our soil, collectively we will have a huge impact on the quality of our air, water, and food.
I’m part of a movement that is bringing high grade whole live dehydrated concentrated living green Superfoods to humanity on a massive scale, helping people break food addictions, stabilize their mood, free up from pain, and heal and restore the gut after long term exposure to the herbicides like #glyphosate
DM me if you would like information about saturating your body with organic superfoods and in the process naturally crowd out the food that no longer serves you. 💞🌎 #togetherwerise#millionmommovement#wellnessbyestelle
I didn't know this would be a launchpad for deep self expression and freedom to finally speak. *
I didn't know it would deepen my spiritual connection and self love even further then ever before.
That it would allow me space to create and share sacred energy with many divine souls.
And call to me conscious sisterhood that my soul has been craving. *
Belonging, finally coming home to deep resonance, soul recognition and more love.
Letting go of old fears in the game of playing small.
Birthing new energy, creation and life into every part of my being. *
Birthing of wisdom, acknowledgement and truth.
In this sharing, we go a little deeper. I open. You open. We find more of who we are.
Some may fade away, but there are many who's hearts seek and I hold space for you. *
Your energy, light and wisdom to arise and blaze. To be fulfilled, aligned with your soul purpose... being loved in who you are.
There's fire, passion, burning. All sacred. *
Stagnation has no place here, but only to pause, breathe, meditate, receive and reflect.
Transformation beckons in every moment, calling to live a fully expressed, purposeful life. *
This is not the slow lane anymore. We willingly jump in the fire to burn away the dross of 'can't, won't, scared, hiding, voiceless, stuck'. *
The games of the mind paralysing the drive of the soul to do more, be more, serve more.
Games I disengage from.
I see you.
Know that i am here with you and for you.
I do not intend to journey alone.
Divine tribe, Divine Sisterhood.
Being who you are is the biggest blessing in your life. Sharing it with others is the biggest blessing to the world.
All love *
So much magic last night at the Alive + Awake Toronto meetup! 🦄🌟❤️ The room was overflowing with love and high vibes. Everyone commented on how plugged in and inspired they felt as they connected with such amazing people. So in love with and grateful for my tribe - thank you to everyone who came out and to those of you who were with us in spirit! Sending all the positivity back out into the world! ✨ #highvibes#tribe#inspiration#transformation#togetherwerise#aliveandawake @aliveandawake 📷 @sunmoondanielle
All the feels. 😭❤️✌️✊Today is the opening night of the film Crazy Rich Asians!! Hope you get to see it tonight and opening weekend! Research in my field shows that if children and people see reflections of themselves on screen and in the media, it directly affects their sense of place in the world, of their identity, and their relation to others. All I want is for my daughter to have a world where it’s better than what I grew up with. This film reflects the true diversity of what our country also looks like, it honors the Asian and Asian american experience and our contributions to society as well.
Not only that but it’s a Damn good rom-com like Sex in the City, one you can see over and over again.
Hope you join us tonight! Going to the advance screenings and premiere, you could feel the positive energy in the room...it was the same kind of excitement at the premiere and every screening of our film, Linsanity, but different. For the APA’s in the house, we got another shot at this and it’s time to rise up together with all our brothers and sisters and create the change we want to see in the world! Keep it going! “It’s not just a movie, it’s a movement.” - Jon Chu, director, Crazy Rich Asians. #representationmatters#goldopen#crazyrichasiansmovie#solidarity#togetherwerise#workingtogether#asiansinhollywood#apa#apas

My babies!! Dayshawn Star Shank (left)
Dayshawn is without a doubt the sweetest kid I’ve ever met. He is so charismatic, totally hilarious and is the definition of a social butterfly. He loves basketball, dancing, and his friends and family. He works so hard in school and is still deciding between being a doctor, a basketball player, or a social worker when he grows up. Anyone who meets him, immediately loves him. He is known for his motivational speeches, and he makes it so, so easy to be his parents. My favorite thing about Dayshawn is his love for others- he’s made it his personal mission to be there for any kid who walks through our door, showing so much compassion and empathy towards every single child (and person) he meets.
Michael De’Anthony Shank
Our youngest, Michael, is 6. He is SO smart, so athletic, and has a kickass sense of humor. He is such a joy to be around and watching him grow from a chubby toddler into this inquisitive, hilarious kid has been the most incredible experience. He loves Stuart’s chicken tikka masala, reading The Magic Treehouse books, and anything by Michael Jackson. Michael is one of the few 5-year-olds crushing black diamonds at Mt. Baker (beating me down the mountain every.single.time) His favorite animal is baby skunks (note the skunk tie) and he gives the best cuddles in the world. His favorite person is his big brother and you’ll rarely ever find him more than 5 feet from Dayshawn. Michael made me a mother, and being able to spend my days with him over the last couple years has resulted in the best years of my life. I’m just so, so thankful. .
I am so head over heels with how many follows I have been getting!!! With all these NEW friends, I thought I would introduce myself!
I’m Ashlee Ray!
Most of you know me as a spiritual teacher, but the past four years have been filled with building businesses and digital design. 💻
I guess you could say I am learning how to embrace my inner Goddess as well as blend being a wife, mom, and a business owner. 🙃

If you are in need of inspo today.... Check out our grrrl @crutching_tigress - One year ago today, I thought my world had ended. I was told how worthless, pathetic, unattractive & disgusting I am. I was told I was unloveable and that people only wanted my friendship in order to get to him. I believed it all. Today, one year ago tonight, I almost took my life. I’ve never felt so devastated nor destroyed. I was all alone because my family was in MOAB, without cellphone reception, on what ended up being the last “Bucket List” Trip with my Mom. I couldn’t see past my pain. I was suffocated by it. - - - -
It’s crazy how far my soul has come over this last year. I started crying this morning, thinking of all the incredible experiences I’ve had, all the love I’ve felt from the universe and all the amazing people I’ve met over these past 12 months. All of it almost didn’t happen because I had become extremely isolated in my situation. I had forgotten who I was. I will never be able to thank my friends enough for being there for me (Kenna, Eric, Lopez, Tito, Earl, JWatt, Kim) one year ago tonight. I can never thank all of my other friends (and all of you!) for rallying around me over the last 12 months & reminding me of who I am, by pushing me out of my comfort zone.
My training & racing have been my therapy. Today, one year later, my soul is at peace & my heart is full of the good stuff again. I not only “know” myself- I love myself. - - - -
I know someone out there tonight is reading this and feeling lost & alone. Maybe you feel like your life doesn’t matter or that the pain will never end. I’m standing here tall to let you know that it does get better- because YOU GET BETTER. - - - -
Life is meant to be lived. Don’t let anyone steal your light nor the joy in your heart. Surround yourself by awesome people, go outside for a walk, do something nice for someone and GET TO LIVING!!! It’s worth it, despite all the pain & tears. There’s beauty and magic to be found everywhere. It’s up to us to find it 🦄🍀💕 - - - -
There is at least one reality which we all seize from within, by intuition and not by simple analysis. It is our own person in its flowing through time, the self which endures. – Henri Bergson

This time of year, in Australia, is know by some as Imbolc, very early spring. Imbolc celebrates the banishing of winter, and the stirring of new life in the earth. It’s a time to explore with curiosity, a time for the cultivation of ideas and possibilities.....I can feel them stirring.
