Welcome to this dimension, Vida Kali Elizabeth Cepeda ✨✨✨ I’ve been forever transformed by you already... Born in the comfort of our home with the phenomenal midwife Takiya Ballard @tsm216 of @sakinamidwifery and the phenomenal doula Jenny Rebecca McLaughlin @jennyrocwell , our little firecracker arrived on Thursday, July 5th, at 5:33 PM, and made quite an entrance, left foot first 😳😉 Will share more once Mama has a moment to get her thoughts together and write, because honestly, she’s still a little speechless about it all... Love and light to everyone for now, and may you have a beautiful weekend with those you love 💜💜💜💜 A few of my own beloveds shown here ✨✨✨

Still expecting ✨ And if you could hear how excited this big sister here is, it would melt your heart...

Made the long trek into the city to pick up a new bow today (everything feels “long” these days when you can’t really walk 😉)... It’s been one of the last things I’d wanted to be sure do before this new little babe comes... Mama is now looking forward to playing her cello for her daughters... wow, a Mama to daughters, plural... in this there is more transformation, I know... And so I sit down to play, and sing, and the song will come, and be written...

This time “seeks to gift us CLARITY by calling forth the Elder within us to rise.
-

She invites us to step into our center and meet the teacher within the within that embodies our center point within the karmic wheel of life.
-

We have in every new moment of the present, the ability to shift what has been and create a new action with new ripples.
-

We are being asked to embody our responsibility as human Beings and meet whatever is rising.
-

Not with old fangled reactionary impulses, but with an open presence that can intersect the past with new understanding.
-

Elder medicine teaches us that cultivation of wisdom is born out of accountability of our actions and a compassionate understanding of their effects on others.
-

We gain in wisdom every time we step through that threshold. We mature and our roots grow deeper each time we consider the effects. -

And clarity dawns her light upon us, when we let go of the mental constructs that bind us, and align with the broader understanding that lies just beneath the surface.”

Imagination is the key that unlocks transformation... 🗝✨

To think that my heart will expand to love even more, when my heart is already bursting for this little curly haired angel? ❤️👶❤️Being a Mama is really something, and while I have no clear idea of what’s ahead, I surrender to all that’s unknown, and I breathe 💜✨ #motherhood #babygirlnumber2 #countingdownthedays #homebirthnumber2 #sakinamidwifery #grateful #love

Coming soon 💜

Part 2, with another baby on the way...

Surprises with dear friends are simply the best ✨🎊 We love you @cougel 💜

I don’t think I’ll ever lose my feeling of deep gratitude when it comes to women supporting other women in business. Especially when things are in their infancy, and we really need each other’s support.✨🙏🏼✨ This photo here reminds me of that. Need to wait on that story for now, but in the meantime, I’m sending a big hug out to all of you who are pursuing a dream, and at times flying, or falling over the hurdles in the way - this stuff isn’t easy! 😅💜

Been talking about this one lately with the wise @urbangoddessamanda, and Durga is certainly a force... “The Devi Mahatmya is an epic tale of the triumph of wisdom over ignorance. [It] is a dramatic narration of the different battles the Great Goddess fights to stop all that is threatening the balance and harmony between humans and nature. Its various chapters describe how only the Great Goddess can stop the asuras (demons) that are causing so much bloodshed, violence and destruction on the earth. .
.

The demons represent the afflicted ego qualities in humans and Devi confronts the demons of arrogance, pride, hypocrisy, greed, rage, discrimination, injustice and more.
.
.

Throughout the story, Durga appears in Her many great manifestations as Parvati, Ambika, Mahalakshmi, Chandika and others. She takes various divine forms to engage in each battle and meet whatever threatening egoic energies appear.
.
.

We are reminded again and again how these asuras (demons) are the afflicted ego and all that is happening on the mythic battlefields shows the ways the mind and ego try to trick, deceive, even attack ourselves and others. .
.

Durga’s many weapons and tools give us insight into what is needed to face our struggles. .
.

With Her composure and conviction we can face whatever stands before us and pray and work for justice to prevail. Her bells brings clarity and removes negativity, Her sword severs attachments and brings discrimination, Her shield protects and reflects back any attacks or vicious criticism. Her club smashes injustice and subdues the over-analytical and judgmental mind. Her spear penetrates to the heart of any matter helping us locate the central truths and act or decide from there.
.

Durga helps us calmly face our fears, our emotional and mental struggles, and all of life’s difficulties. Durga is the Great Liberator. In fact, She is known as the Goddess who liberates any oppressed energies we may be feeling within ourselves and in our lives. She wants us to live freely and fully from our hearts. She wants us to remember our inherently Divine Nature.” .
