Shadow self. 
We all  have one. Our shame. Our dark. Those things we like to keep hidden away, in the basement of our mind.
Those parts that feel rough, awkward, less than, unkind, not enough, needy, weak, naive, boring. 
These things only hide your light when you refuse to see them. They keep you halfway in between the dark and the light. A kind of personality purgatory. 
We all have them. Every one of us. Those things we detest so much in others? It’s really a quality about ourselves we’ve never addressed, in some form. Unless you are at a place of complete compassion, understanding and grace at other people’s faults, you have them yourself. That driver that pissed you off, or was unkind, or that mom who blew off her kids, or that judgmental superficial mom you know, or the rebellious teen,or the goody goody Bible thumper, or the pretentious hipster, the addict, the perfectionist, the control freak, the person who’s stepped outside of the box, 
Yeah...all part of you. Aspects you haven’t healed, or acknowledged, or understood as parts of who you are. Before you dismiss that idea sit with it a while. Get to know it. 
Walk with your shadow, the dark, the oppressive, the sad, embarrassing, painful, awkward, weak, unkind, fake, judgmental parts of you. Once you bring your whole self out into the light you will become integrated with you really are, it’s what will set you free. To be whole, no longer half of yourself, you have to let all parts of yourself into the light, to dance with your shadow, so you can finally walk as one.

Someone else’s expectations of what you should or shouldn’t feel are NOT your playbook for life. Someone (even you)  trying to control your emotions is as productive as trying to control the weather. Emotions are a living breathing  energy that need to move and flow and evolve.  When you suppress, block, shame, punish,  starve, ignore, downplay or numb your emotions you are allowing that energy to dam up; you’re keeping it from flowing through you and doing its work. They are here to serve us, teach us, heal us, and most  importantly help us to grow. ✨Emotion ✨literally ✨means ✨energy ✨in motion. ✨

There is no such thing as a bad emotion. Feelings aren’t facts. They are fluid changing moments in time. They don’t have to  make us cower  in fear or rule our actions in any way. When we base our decisions off of a fear of feeling, we ironically end up trapped in in that very emotion we’re trying to avoid. Believe me, I get it...Fear of being happy because it’ll get taken away, or fear of going after what we want because we don’t want to feel disappointment...etc.  Instead try noticing these emotions as you would the weather, appreciating each one as you would a passing storm or sunny day, knowing it’s fluid and ever changing. Who we are at our core will not change. Our worth remains the same, regardless of what we are feeling. Let it flow, like the tides, pushing and pulling what it may, knowing that you  are still the ocean, either way

Really feeling the need to share this one tonight. That voice that tells you to be quiet, keep it to yourself, not tell your story, keep it locked away so you’re not vulnerable or noticed, or shamed, or whatever you’re telling yourself, don’t listen to it. You are needed. Your story is needed. There are others right now who are struggling and stuck and wondering how they’ll ever make it through. Your story, your voice, might be the one to give them hope, show them there’s a way. Use your voice. Speak up. No matter how small or insignificant you may think your voice is, use it. Do it anyway. Say it anyway. Be someone’s reason for hope.

You know those days when you  have something you need to express but you can’t quite find it, or it can’t find its way out? You just can’t seem to  find inspiration? Like maybe it’s stuck or you’re blocking it or maybe you’re just not ready for it? The next best thing is getting outside, getting outside of yourself. Crunch some 🍁 leaves, look down, look around, look up. Notice things, notice LIFE. Find your light. ✨ .

I used to read things like and almost get angry.  I’d feel so  alone in my circumstances and think, “but you don’t know what I’ve done...I didn’t just get fired from a job, or say something unkind, or have one too many drinks at the Christmas party” 
Then I recognized that what I had been carrying around didn’t serve anyone. Including myself. Especially myself.
You don’t have to  beat yourself over the head with your mistakes, or let anyone else.
You can (finally) set that sickeningly heavy  shit down and use it as a stepping stool to help yourself (and others). You don’t have to steep in all that dark heavy shame. You can feel light and free and still help others (and yourself) in a profound way. 
It’s.okay.to.feel.happy.

I was so exhausted, giving pieces of myself  away until I was  everywhere and nowhere all at once. I was tired of carrying old energy, old stories, old mistakes, launching all my energy into the past,  keeping me  anchored. I realized either way that the pain will be there, keeping me stuck, until I released it. I decided to use it to drive me forward. 
Listen, ask the questions, get curious, dive so deep into your heartache that your heart cracks wide open and your pain turns to light to shine  on someone’s dark. And just maybe it’ll show them how to crack their heart wide open. Releasing and shining. ✨

If you’re lonely, wandering, looking, searching for where you belong, where you fit in, where your people are. Listen to me, if you feel resistance, invisible, unwelcome than it isn’t your tribe. No matter what “shoulds” are bouncing around in your head, it simply isn’t for you. 
Go where the love is. 
If it feels wrong, it is, despite what anyone else says. And if you are unsure? Speak your truth about who you are and where you’ve been and your tribe will find you. I promise.

I took this picture on a night walk, not long after  Jason died. 
That was 6 years ago. I’ve lived (and honestly sometimes not) a few lives since then. .
.
This morning, while looking at this picture it hit me how far I’ve come since that moment. How much has  occurred within the walls of my heart house. 
I’m thankful that I have  the heart space  to (finally) begin to  rebuild. I’m thankful I’m learning to finally open my heart and LET  it start over, again. Allow new home space, family, friends, strangers, into my heart  without the fear of losing  or being lost. Again. .
.
To let myself in my OWN  heart, again, and trust the magic and beauty of what’s in it. Thankful I feel alive without feeling guilty for it. For being the one that made it. Thankful I feel happy to be here without feeling undeserving,shameful and less worthy of it than  those who haven’t struggled with those demons. And I’m SO  awe struck, dumbfounded, knocked to my knees thankful that I’ve found my voice again, and I have the heart and soul to share it with you. I’m so beyond thankful for that, because I know, at least one person will read this and it will spark that knowing inside of you.  That it’s okay to let your heart start over. And you will. 
Happy Thanksgiving, my loves.❤️

I hope you see the light  in me. I took the losses and turned them into bravery. It hurt to breathe light  into my lungs and I screamed and cried and shook until it came naturally. 
I hope you know you’re  whole. I took the love that never was and used the cracks to shape and build myself which is so  much more than your stifling and expected mediocrity.  I hope you see your worth.  I took the shame and secret and lies, I burned  them and used the light to remember  and reclaim  my soul and my dignity.  I hope you know  that home is  an emotion. It’s not a place they can ever again take from me. 
I listened to my losses until I befriended and danced with the dark ghost of me.

She is a wild child with a gypsy soul that dances with the stars. She has a free spirit, a reckless mind and a rebel heart that isn't meant to be tamed. Love her wild and you will never lose her #olifantsriver #southafrica #wildwoman #wildwomansociety #freespirit #healingsoul #tattooedgirls #tattooedgirlsofinstagram #tattooedgirlsrock
Remember the curious, energetic, joyful, not afraid to chase your passions, child that you used to be?  The one who wouldn’t pass up a park without swinging? Go find her! (Or him)
✨
You guys! We’re not meant to be here only out of a sense of duty. To have a task and to-do list and to keep ourselves busy to pass the time until we die. 
Just.no.NO. No no no! ✨Discovering your passions, embracing the magic, and really truly seeing people will serve each other WAY more than serving others from a sense of duty, and “because we’re supposed to.” People know the difference. 
From a very young age.  I promise you this with all that I am. Enjoy your life. 
Even if it’s just swinging high like a kid when you’re out on a walk and  pass up a park. Find your swing. Really see people & go make some magic!

I am a strong woman, made of soft and wild things.
_ 
This is how I am, how I should be, how I stand now raw and revealed. Finally, comfortable in my soft and my wild.
_
For so long, for too long I stood only proud in my strength. Shying away from my soft and way to afraid to show my wild.
Why are we as women so conditioned to be this way? To be constantly tortured in a world that needs us to be strong and wild and soft but only allows us to be one or the other, often so torn by trying to separate and choose that we end up being neither.
_ 
We need to realize that it is often our softness that yields strength beyond our comprehension, our wild that allows us to be tenacious and tender, and our strength that allows us to run with the wildest of them. 
_
We need to start stepping into our divine power, completely. We can be everything we need to be, everything we want, all at once,
and that is our power.

More real  voices. More real life stories. No more  fake happy stories, privileged advice, and outdated scorecards. Fear and pride keep us quiet. Convince us our story isn’t valid or worthy, or needed. You know what? When you show up raw and authentic it creates  momentum for others to do the same.  It creates connection and tells shame and doubt to go fuck off. We aren’t here to protect  our pride, we’re here to protect each other.

It hurt to breathe light  into my lungs and I screamed and cried and shook until it came naturally. ✨I hope you know you’re  whole. I took the love that never was and used the cracks to shape and build myself which is so  much more than your stifling and expected mediocrity. ✨I hope you see your worth.  I took the shame and secret and lies, I burned  them and used the light to remember  and reclaim  my soul and my dignity. ✨I hope you open the door and see that home is  an emotion. It’s not a place they can ever again take from me. 
I listened to my losses until I befriended and danced with that dark ghost of me.

I’ve bled and and lost and grieved  and wrapped  myself up in your  colors of guilt and shame that you created and named (so carefully) for me. I took your required lens of penance and i saw  and felt my sins through it  every second of every day. I crawled and begged and groveled for my life back. I watched it so carelessly tossed away, piece by piece, lie by lie, to the Golden.  I’m not sorry enough, right enough, my wool too black. 
So I smashed your lens for my truth reflection and carefully and quietly whispered enough.  #recoverycommunity #recoverymode #recoveryaccount #recoverywarriors #recoverycoach  #recoverysayings #recoverygirl #recoverylife #recoveryquote #recoveryisreal #recoveryprocess

There is someone,right fucking now, going through the same hell you once did with no clue how to get out. Keeping silent about your struggles doesn’t help anyone. It robs you of the chance to help someone and speak your truth, and robs them of seeing it’s possible. Help the person following in your steps. Illuminate the path.

SF Wild Woman Series // The beauty of integration...that we don't have to split ourselves between wild nature and our "goodness" or loyalty. The Wild Woman Series in San Francisco is an opportunity for self-identified wild women to gather and deep dive into the wild woman archetype.  The next course begins Wednesday, October 4 in SF and focuses on major themes (i.e. creativity, sexuality, sovereignty, etc.) from Clarissa Pinkola Estés' "Women Who Run with the Wolves." Each week will explore a different myth from an archetypal, depth-psychology perspective grounded in somatic exploration. Details: *Wednesdays 7:30-9pm
*Six-week series from October 4-November 8
*Flood Building: Wild Woman Therapy (870 Market St, Suite 919) 
All self-identified women welcome! Link in bio for more info. #wildwoman #wolves #wildwomanseries #womenempowerment #wildwomansociety repost @indijam And @r.h.sin

WILD WOMAN SOCIETY (SIX-WEEK SERIES IN SAN FRANCISCO AND EAST BAY) // The Wild Woman Society is a group for modern-day wild women to explore and work with edges around vulnerability with ourselves and the world. The weekly gathering focuses on major themes (i.e. creativity, sexuality, sovereignty, etc.) from Clarissa Pinkola Estes' Women Who Run with the Wolves. We (working with @danamarienielsen And myself) will explore the myths from an archetypal, depth-psychology perspective grounded in somatic exploration.

Across cultures, women have been gathering in circles for thousands of years. Beautiful things can happen personally and collectively when we are able to express our unique and collective struggles, gifts, passions and pains in a nourishing environment. This six-week group is a brave, supportive and embodied space for diverse women to connect, heal and be witnessed in their wildness, together.

Participants will experience: *Practical ways to develop your intuition and embodied knowing
*Initiating ourselves more into our inner wild woman
*Access a deeper level of understanding and knowledge of the wild woman archetype in mythology *Feeling empowered and connected in a community of women
*Connecting to our own unique expression of the wild woman archetype

All self-identified women welcome! We encourage diversity and do our best to approach the topics from an intersectional lens. CLICK ON LINK IN BIO FOR MORE INFO #wildwoman #wildwomen #wildwomansociety #womenwhorunwiththewolves

An excerpt from 100 stories worth telling.  www.nikkigroom.com

Honoured to be featured. 😊😍⭐️⭐️ 100StoriesWorthTelling #38: Star Monroe, 
Beyond Fake “My parents were controlling, and my identity for a long time was that of the “good girl.” That was, before I discovered boys, booze, and sex. Mix this with bulimia and a hatred for my own body and you have one messed-up teenager. Later, I found myself searching for love (although I didn’t know it at the time) and would bed man after man just to fill the void inside. I even entered into a 10-year marriage with a man I didn’t love as part of this quest. Not surprisingly, it ended badly… on my 30th birthday.

After that, I went on a rampage again. Abandoned, hurt, and rejected, I dove back into booze, men, and (this time) drugs. During this heady time I opened up my fourth and fifth businesses, became phenomenally successful, spent all the profits on drugs, holidays to Vegas, and designer clothes. Fast forward 7 years and I was bankrupt, had a severe drug and alcohol addiction, and a trail of abusive and toxic relationships behind me.

I decided on July 1, 2008 that enough was enough. I stopped using cocaine and booze. And I became one of the UK’s top competitive figure athletes. I opened up another (successful) business teaching my life philosophy. I ran retreats, mentoring groups, and became an in-demand speaker. But something still didn’t feel right. Although my ego was being stroked, my soul was feeling left out. And I still felt unhappy. I wasn’t sure of who I was anymore.

Cue my life falling apart around my feet. I stopped and took stock. I ditched what wasn’t important to me. The busy businesses. The workaholic tendencies. The designer outfits. The unnecessary spending. The booze that had sneaked back in again. The toxic relationships. I simplified my life so I could get closer to the real me. I stopped being uber glamorous, returned to my roots, let my hair go wild, took off my fake nails, and began to think seriously about removing my 600cc breast implants. I slowed down, took up yoga, started walking my dogs in the woods every day. And I no longer worked every hour.... Read the rest www.nikkigroom.com

I'm in the midst of letting go of so much stuff.  Clothes, furniture, old ways of being, funky ways of thinking.

Its humbling that I get the opportunity to do this.

It's also very liberating.

Because it is all paving the way back to me. 💕💜💜🌺🍭🌸🍒🍦⭐️💋

My first barometer of "acceptable" attractiveness was at 13 years old via Vogue's Beauty Bible.

The Beauty Bible told me to be "perfect" I need to have three gaps between my thighs when I stood upright legs together and I needed to balance a ruler on each hip bone (with space underneath) when lying down.

Three eating disorders later, crazy addictions to various substances, hours in therapy and years of hating on my body I'm finally walking out the other side.

Look I get it, Vogue was not the only thing that led me on the road to my own destruction but it was definitely one of the huge nails in the coffin.

At any age we are susceptible to outside forces but especially when we are young children/teens.

Be careful what you feed your eyes, body & soul. 
Set an example by defining your own style and sense of beauty.
Surround yourself by others that do that same.

We are in this together.

Oh!

And FUCK VOGUE.

Judge me all you want.  But I love to snuggle down and watch episodes of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Yesterday I caught up with one of the latest episodes and the only woman I could really resonate with was Yolanda.

Yolanda used to be a high fashion model and for the past few years she has battled with Lymes Disease.  I have been following her for the past couple of years and admire her bravery, courage and commitment to being true to herself.

On this latest episode in a sea of beautifully dressed, highly made up and manicured women, Yolanda sauntered on in just her flip flops, zero make up and hair pulled back in a pony tail.

I love the fact that Yolanda is being true to herself, is committed to looking after herself and removing as many toxins as possible from her life and her body.

In a world full of fakes it takes courage to be truly, deeply you.

Here's to YOU being YOU. 💕💜💕

The amount of pressure we load onto how our body looks is astronomical. 
There is not a day goes past that I don't see at least 3 people either touting their lean tight toned body or telling me how they can help me do the same.

I was talking to one of my client's the other day about weaning her baby.  She told me how confused she was with all the advice everyone else was giving her.  I gently invited her to pause for a moment and asked her "what do you want to do?" She looked at me for a second and then proceeded to tell me exactly what she wanted to do. "Go do that" I said because what you want to do is more important than what everyone else wants you to do.

It's the same with our bodies.  When we listen to everyone else and the noise that pervades social media we become confused, disillusioned and overwhelmed. 
I get it, it is easy to let someone else tell you what to do, it really is.  But when we let someone else dictate what they believe is right for our body we hand over control and personal responsibility.

We are the architects of our own design or destruction (you choose) and when we have the balls to side step all the noise this is the beginning of us journeying back into who we are are, what we really want and how we want to go about it and that my friend is power! Power for your own personal growth and change.

So a couple of questions for your body.  And yes I meant for your body.  Your body is wise beyond wise and holds all the answers for you.

Take some time, lets say 30 mins.  Shut down social media, in fact it would be good to have a break from social media 12 hours before and 12 hours after this mini exercise.

Sit down with a pen and paper and ask YOUR body these questions.

How are you feeling right now?

What do you need right now?

If I was to change one thing, what would that thing be?

How do you want to feel on a daily basis?

And

How would you like me to move you? 
Practice talking to your body, practice listening to your body and practice doing what your body wants to do.

From my body to yours.

We are in this together.

Much love.

Star

The road of self-hate is one that most of know vvvvvery well. It is uncomfortably comfort.  It is easy, it is the path most travelled.  It is where we revert to when the going gets tough.

The road of self-love is strange, it is the road less travelled, it is very uncomfortable, it is the unknown.  And most of have no bloody clue how to walk this path let alone find it.

But when the day comes (and it will) when the realisation hits you - that you are no longer prepared to walk along the road of self-hate then I urge you to reach out, ask for help, seek support.  Because I guarantee you switching between this two roads will be challenging with a capital C-H-A-L-L-E-N-G-I-N-G.

Look for women/men who have done the work on themselves, who have worked with people and those people say nice things about them.

Hold yourself as you would a small child in distress.  Practice being kind, practice opening your heart and your mind to the unknown.  And practice having faith in yourself that there is another way.  Because there is.

Changing our patterns takes awareness first.  Then a willingness to do the work and to forever continue doing the work for as long as we live.

I love you.

I'm holding you.

And I'm walking right alongside side you.

Because I guarantee you switching between this two roads will be challenging with a capital C-H-A-L-L-E-N-G-I-N-G. Look for women/men who have done the work on themselves, who have worked with people and those people say nice things about them. Hold yourself as you would a small child in distress. Practice being kind, practice opening your heart and your mind to the unknown. And practice having faith in yourself that there is another way. Because there is. Changing our patterns takes awareness first. Then a willingness to do the work and to forever continue doing the work for as long as we live. I love you. I'm holding you. And I'm walking right alongside side you. Star <3

Transforming....transitioning. Always an icky sticky process. Walking away from your comfort zone and into the unknown takes courage, resilience and a truck load of kindness, compassion and support.  Leaving behind what no longer serves me and embracing more of what does.  It's a long old trek but I'm committed to the process and humbled by the unravelings.
