Adventure Sparks Divinity

My morning adventure was waking up at 3am to drive to see the sunrise. It felt fucking phenomenal to do this for myself. As I stood, danced, sang, breathed, and moved my body- I mindfully spoke to God/Goddess/Universal Oneness, voiced my gratitude and asked to be an open vessel of light and love for Source to work through in support of humanity and Earth. When I was very young I loved God, then in my Roman Catholic gradeschool and Eastern Orthodox High School years- religion

How do you take care of yourself? How do you love yourself? Seriously- make a list- at least 10 things. Go. Post below. Share. Get other people to post. Put it up in your house. Practice at least 1 if not all 10 every day. My top 12 Self Care Tools 1. Laugh- watch something funny, cute animals, joke with friends 2. Nap- love me some naps 3. Nature- walk in it, step outside and breathe deep, look at nature pictures, videos, places I've traveled- feel my connection to all that

Anxiety. Frustration. Gratitude.

Although I am feeling anxiety/frustration with many things at the moment (including pushing my move out date and not knowing exactly when I will be moving to my new apartment, loosing the majority of my income, not being able to buy a webcam because they are out of stock everywhere, having audio/sound issues with my live classes, not being able to see and hug all my peeps, not knowing if when I go grocery shopping Friday I will be able to get things that I need... then I need

Tune In To You

No filter. The shine is real. What we need right now is to not dim, but to shine brighter. Pause, breathe, go within, tune into that part in you that is connected to me and everything else. Move from a centered space through the chaos. Don't have time to pause? Make time. Take care of yourself. Nature is giving each of us a reason to slow down, to get some sunshine, to remember... ...Deep breaths... Remember who you are... Spirit. Remember why you are here... To live. Remembe

Merit Badges of Strength, Courage and Resilience

For a huge part of my life I was chronically dissatisfied in my relationships with people and with situations surrounding me. A big part of this was rooted growing up in an abusive home while feeling powerless, scared, misunderstood and unheard- once I was old enough to understand the unhealthy dynamics in my family- I headed into a very dark head-space. My spirit began to get covered over and I was lost. This experience led me to spending my adult life learning how to connec

Find a Lesson in Everything

About once or twice a year I lose my voice. With teaching yoga, in some capacity, 7 days a week it's no mystery why this happens. I am also a heart led teacher which can add to the energy drain. For the next few days as I recover I ask my students to be understanding. This is also an opportunity for me to be very mindful and selective about the words I use while cuing my classes. #findalessonineverything #letsseehowthisgoestoday #lostmyvoice #honeylemonginger #selfcare #yogae
