In an effort to move some of the energy inside me, I decided to finally finish organizing the room so I have space to do yoga. While flipping through a journal I found, this jumped out. Went to grab my phone to snap this and saw it was 3:33pm. I SEE YOU, @JULIEBSANTIAGO! You always show up in the moments when I need a reminder to soften and trust. #sisterhood #cosmicconnection #slowisthefastway

Complete transparency: I've been hitting my max emotional capacity a lot lately. Knowing how the body works, as the well-designed, high-functioning machine that it is, I understand that my sympathetic nervous system is over-firing - I'm staying in Fight, Flight, or Freeze way longer than my human machine is designed for. โ—พ
Normally, I'm able to deal with this though yoga and dancing, but lately it seems I've got more energy trapped in me from more intense emotional experiences than is released when I practice those things. โ—พ
It comes in waves. For a day or two I might be fine, then all of a sudden I can't even get out of bed, I burst into tears unexpectedly and uncontrollably... last night I couldn't sleep and eventually had an anxiety attack - hyperventilating, shaking, whimpering, I couldn't get a hold of it. I felt so filled with the energy of these feelings and this darkness that if I didn't cling to whatever was closest to me I'd be flung into oblivion. Everything felt heavy and dark and hot.

I don't know if I've ever truly hit rock bottom. I don't know for sure if that's where I am now. I feel like when people talk about that place - "rock bottom" - they don't realize that's where they were until they've left, moved on, crawled out of the trenches, battered and beaten, muddied by their own emotional defeat, unable to identify who they are. All I know for sure is that my machine is malfunctioning - it wasn't designed for this. And I'm not sure how to switch it off when the triggers come from "out there" and show no signs of stopping. โ—พ
So deep in the What The Fuck Is This right now. Send love, pls.

I haven't really been one to celebrate Valentine's day in the modern commercial sense in a number of years. Instead, today I celebrate the humans who are putting in the work to be better on their own, knowing it will make them better together. To the ones who face their shadow fearlessly. To the ones who seek to uncover and heal the wounds hidden deep within. To the ones trudging tirelessly through their muck, rather than sitting and sulking in it. To the ones who have committed to serve those they love the best they can, while honoring and respecting themselves and their own boundaries. To the ones who have the courage to change the patterns that continue the cycle of hurt and violence that SO MANY of us have experienced personally (yes - you are not alone). To the survivors who have so courageously re-learned how to love themselves, and then to love and trust others. Be your own Valentine first, and remember, healthy boundaries and mutual respect are sexy AF. #VDAY #truelove #relationshipgoals #respect #โค

#altarvibes strong ๐Ÿ”ฎ v 3.0

Every time I move, my altar changes slightly, either in location or display. I used to align all of my #crystals by color / chakra. Yesterday when I began unpacking my altar boxes, I started placing them intuitively. What I love about my altar, besides all the good juju, is how many memories are here. Sand dollars and seashells from Mexico, The Florida Keys, and Nova Scotia. Feathers from Montreal and Soul Camp. A pine cone "laser gun" from @farrellenoble. Oracle cards inspired by @starmanspeaks. Pieces from dear friends @alisonbwpena @alvi_5d @wanderlustfest @fnnlzda. Krishna on the right is a family heirloom from my great great uncle's tour through India with the British, and the trunk from the turn of the century, given to me by my mom. It's traveled with me everywhere I've lived from NS to Edmonton to Montreal to Montclair to NYC. I really like this iteration. What's on your altar?
