"We don't make mistakes, just happy little accidents." - Bob Ross

While hiking in Griffith Park this morning, my phone decided to take a few pictures on its own inside my bag. Apparently my phone was channeling painter, Mark Rothko. I have no idea how this happened, it's magic...

What is healing anyway? My friend, @o_hi_nevada and I were talking about this after class @strike.a.kjord's class this morning. What's the point of doing all this spiritual work if you aren't actually healing?
. . .
What came up for me was all that I have been feeling these past few weeks, which have been extremely challenging for me. I felt myself beginning to spiral down that dark rabbit hole I found myself in for much of 2015 and 2016. I did NOT want to go back to that place. It was dark, dense and heavy. But here is the difference between then and now. Before, I felt stuck. I felt powerless. Now, I am much more aware of the triggers that pull me into that space. I also have more tools and awareness for how to allow myself the space to feel whatever I'm feeling but also how not to dwell in it. I have gotten better at giving myself love, patience and compassion understanding that these things are coming to surface because they parts of myself that still require a lot of love, attention and healing.
. . .
It made me think of a class I took with @gurusinghdaily a few months ago where I was deep in meditation and my voice said loudly to me, Briana - just keep showing up and do the work, over and over again. When our meditation was over and Guru Singh began his lecture, he said, you just have to keep showing up and do the work. I smiled to myself. Of course that's what he said and I said thank you to the Universe for the clear message.
. . .
So, that's what I remind myself of often when I find myself slipping. I have to just keep showing up and do the work. I need to continue finding more love, compassion, and patience for myself the way I am able to remind my clients to do for themselves. Healing is a lifetime learning, growing and expanding and all our life's challenges are our greatest teachers. And for that, I am forever grateful.

It will be 7 years in September since this sweet girl and I found each other. She was all of 8 lbs and the cutest puppy I had ever seen. The vet said she was two months old, which makes her 7 this month. Happy Birthday my sweet Daisy Doodler!!! I can't express how grateful I am that the universe put us together. You fill my heart with so much love and pure joy every day of my life. I seriously don't know what I'd do without you and all your wet face kisses and snuggles. Love you my baby girl!

This was the theme for today's class @wanderlusthlwd with my dear friend and great inspiration, @strike.a.kjord. He has the amazing ability to simultaneously hold an incredibly powerful and safe space for his students to go deep inside themselves then shining their radiance out into the world. Being able to feel grounded, safely held, and expansive all in one is no easy feat. Kjord does it all with humility + grace. Thank you... ✨💖🙏🏼💖✨
. . .
And an extra big thanks to my bestie @o_hi_nevada, her extraordinary daughter @bratsile and my dear friend @ximenaacosta for joining me today and sharing the most perfect Saturday morning a girl could hope for. Love you three with all my ❤️❤️❤️!

@dave45art (Dave Martinez) + @ofaire (Greg Arnold) are two of the most talented chefs in LA. If you haven't been to their pop-up restaurant, Of Aire in Silverlake yet, get your ass there. It's open from 6-10pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights and they've made their home inside @milliescafela on Sunset. Get a seat at the counter and have a front row seat watching these artists create some of the most delicious, innovative, and beautiful dishes you'll try. Vegans & omnivores will both be happy. I promise these guys will make magic in your mouth!! ✨
. . .
Last night I tried a new dish, the vegan Po' Boy made with fried oyster mushrooms and a cacao avocado molé and other magical ingredients I can't remember that was divine along with every other dish.
. . .
Thank you guys for another magical night!! I can't wait to try the cured egg yolks! 😘✨🙏🏼

"Speak truthfully; speak simply, straightforwardly and with a smile. Never try to impress others; try to impress yourself. Find happiness within you. Find an attitude of gratitude. Be happy for what God has given you. All happiness will come to you if you are happy. Happiness will come to you because happiness wants to go where happiness is. " - Yogi Bhajan

Had such a wonderful night with my friend, Elana from high school who I haven't seen in 10-15 years and our mutual friend @chef_ariane. I am so blessed and grateful to be surrounded by so many smart, strong, emotionally intelligent, kind, creative, talented, warm-hearted, fierce, suppprtive, loving women. And thank you, Ariane for the reminder to be deeply grateful every moment of every day and having an abundant life will flow with ease and grace.

Met up with @bjnherrin, @dahianabilbao, and @grace.joli.kaur this morning for Tej's class at @9treasuresyoga with the intention of doing seva (to be of service) after class picking up food from @bristolfarms and delivering to the @gsshelter.
. . .
Well, the bags of food made it there but not without its challenges. The four of us could not stop laughing because after meditating, chanting Ang Sang Wahe Guru for what I think was 11 minutes then a deep rest for 12, we were on another planet! aka on a Kundalini high. Note to self: ground first next time before driving!
. . .
via @3hofoundation: "Chanting this mantra synchronizes the finite sense of self to the lnfinite Oneness.
. . .
This mantra expresses a universal truth. Repeating it creates a thought, which gradually guides the psyche to adjust itself. lt reconnects every fragmented projection of the psyche, each separated part of the body, and synchronizes the finite to the Infinite.
. . .
This act of rejoining the separated parts is the quintessential act of healing. Under attack, under war, under the pressures of fear, this meditation keeps us together, conscious, and ready to act. lt brings the inner peacefulness that comes only from the touch and scope of spirit.
. . .
The dynamic, loving energy of the Infinite is dancing in every limb and every cell of our being. lndividual consciousness merges with the Universal Consciousness. With this mantra, we experience that we are not alone. The lnfinite One is with us in every cell and every limb of our being. We feel the Divine Presence removing our fears and loneliness."

What a beautiful, nourishing day! Me and part of our kundalini crew celebrating the birth of the amazing Miss @akristinp, although she actually spoiled us today! . . .
Began our Sunday at @gurusinghdaily's class then headed to Manhattan Beach and feasted on jack fruit tacos from @thekindsage courtesy of the birthday girl.
. . .
These women fill my heart + soul beyond what I could ever put into words. Grateful for this family we've created. Love you ladies with all my heart! 💖💖💖
