I’m feeling a theme of SELF-LOVE in the air right now.
It might sound cliché, but to truly love yourself during the darkest nights of the Soul, despite your imperfections - can be one of the hardest things to master.
When you love yourself - your life will begin to experience HUGE shifts. 💓 The feelings of unworthiness and “I am not enough” are replaced with connection, empowerment and unconditional love for ALL! 🤟

❝People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed only if there is light and love from within.❞
〰️ Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

Self-Love is a process, so don’t be too hard on yourself...Take time to discover, get to know, and nurture your inner light. You deserve it.

Magical toys for an epic journey through BREATH + SOUND 〰️ ✨

We live in a world of frequencies and vibrations... AKA energy ... we are also made of energy. Every cell of our body vibrates. Our thoughts are vibrations. And everything around us right now - has its optimal frequency. Sound “naad” is the medicine of the future!

So lovely to play alongside my fellow sound practitioner and friend, Sally!

#Vibrations #SoundMedicine #MusicHeals #naad

I think if we can find a little stillness everyday, quiet our minds, rise above our irrational thoughts and remember we are NOT our emotions — the Soul will finally have the space to speak. ✨Then we get to LISTEN.
Listen to our unique frequency guiding us into the next moment. What a gift. 🤟 — if you want any help finding a short personal meditation practice you can incorporate into your daily routine please reach out (even if we don’t “talk”)🦋 xoxo

❝Meditation should not be regarded as a learning process. It should be regarded as an EXPERIENCING process. You should not try to learn from meditation but try to FEEL it. Meditation is an act of nonduality. Meaning: The technique you are using should not be separate from you; it is you, you are the technique. Meditator and meditation are one.❞ 〰️Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche

A quick watercolor I painted to represent... 🦋
FREEDOM: /ˈfrēdəm/
The power or right - to act, speak, think, create, express yourself, speak your truth, live your life in pure sovereignty.

I am excited to personally work with this epic concept in my life right now. To strive to be free in every single moment. Free to be ME. Free to be fully ALIVE and enjoy NOW. And free from my old patterns.

✶ Do you have the freedom to believe what you want, and to live and love as you choose?
✶ Do you have the freedom to ground yourself, to let go of negative energies that don’t work for you?
✶ Can you freely express yourself without the fear of being judged?
✶ How about the freedom to feel well and to be happy, even if others don’t or can’t?

Remember: Spiritual freedom isn’t about controlling, it’s really about letting go.

Saying goodbye to NYC for now. 🤟It’s been the most incredible experience and I feel so BLESSED to have met all the epic human beings who are now my sweet, new friends. Missing my New York fam already and will be back to visit soon! ♡ ♡ ♡
X X Love you ALL!

Amazed at the many lessons I’ve learned this past year in this high-energy city.
As I settle back in California... I am feeling too stoked for my next chapter. 🌞

This soothing breath practice (#pranayama) relieves anxiety... promoting calmness and mental clarity from the heart. ❥
-
👇HOW TO:👇
POSTURE: Sit in Easy Pose. Place the left hand on the center of the chest at the Heart.

MUDRA: Make Gyan Mudra 👌 with the right hand (touch the index finger with the thumb). Raise the right hand up to the right side as if giving a pledge. The palm faces forward.

EYES: Either close the eyes or gently look straight ahead.

BREATH:
💨 #INHALE slowly and deeply through both nostrils. Then suspend the breath IN and raise the chest. Retain it as long as you ‘comfortably’ can. (But don’t make yourself pass out!)
💨Then #EXHALE smoothly, gradually, and completely. When the breath is totally out, hold the breath OUT for as long as you can.
💨 REPEAT!

ABOUT:
—The home of the subtle force of prana 🌀is in the lungs and heart. The left palm is placed at the natural home of prana and creates a deep stillness at that point.
—The right hand that brings you to action and analysis, is placed in a receptive, relaxed mudra in the position of peace. This induces the feeling of calmness.
—The breath retention stimulates the nervous system, specifically our “fight or flight” response...Training our brains to react calmly in the face of challenge.
—Emotionally, this meditation adds clear perception to your relationships with yourself and others.
—If you are upset at work or in a personal relationship, sit in this meditation for 3 to 15 minutes before deciding how to act. Then act with clarity from and with your FULL HEART.❤️❤️❤️

This breathing meditation will enhance your capacity for CALIBER, to hold and execute self-authority in your life. #sovereignty
-
👇HOW TO:👇Sit in Easy Pose. Keep the spine straight at all times.

MUDRA: Your hands are at the level of your Heart. ❤️ Close the fingers over the thumbs into fists. Press the fists together at the first knuckles from the tips of the fingers, so the base of the palms are together.

Focus the eyes gently on the tip of the nose.

BREATH:
1️⃣ Inhale deeply through the nose.
2️⃣ Exhale completely through the mouth with pursed lips.
3️⃣ Inhale smoothly through the mouth.
4️⃣ Exhale through the nose.

inhale nose ↠ exhale mouth ↠ inhale mouth ↠ exhale nose ↠inhale nose ↠ exhale mouth... Start with just 3 minutes!

Caliber ⚡️is the ability to maintain our committed, “true” self. When we become our own directive, the psyche can fulfill the self and we can be happy.

Normally we reject authority and initiate chaos (inner and outer) out of an attempt to create individuality by difference... rather than through integrity and wholeness.
