This post from @iamhertribe really hit home for me today. My mom and I found out yesterday that our lovely landlord has to sell her home and we'll have about 60 days to find a new place to live. It's heartbreaking for everyone. For our elderly landlord because she can no longer afford her home and for my mom & me because this space was quite perfect for us and my puppy, Daisy. Our landlord was incredibly fair for the rent she charged us as the rents in our neighborhood have gone up astronomically while people's salaries have not. Daisy has a big, enclosed space to run around chasing squirrels where mom could play ball with while I'm on set for 12-16 hour days. Daisy's too strong for my mom to be able to walk her so having this space has been a blessing.

So, here I am. In the mess again. In transition again, preparing to move for the 8th time in 8 years weeding out what's real, whats of value and what deserves to stay. Moving has a way of doing that whether you like it or not. Ridding oneself of anything that no longer fits both physically & metaphorically.
.
.
I'm doing my best to not fall down the rabbit hole of fear and instead choose trust. Trust in myself and the universe. Trust that life needed to be shaken up again in order to push me to where I'm meant to be on my journey. Trust that everything will somehow work itself out just as it has every other time I've hit a bump in the road these past few years.
.
.
I'm looking forward to the day when I can plant roots again, create a beautiful home where I can stay awhile and feel secure that the ground won't constantly be pulled out from under me. In the meantime, I will continue doing my best to go through yet another transition with absolute divine grace & ease.

"When you don’t give anybody anything you will never be prosperous. The first principle of life as a human is to be loving. You must meet people. You must receive people. You must talk to people. You must share your wisdom with people. If your love is true and true is your love, then all that is in the Universe belongs to you. Love first, everything will come to you." - Yogi Bhajan

Come join me this Thursday night (9/21) at 7pm at @wanderlusthlwd and get your Kundalini on! I’ll be subbing for the always amazing, @strike.a.kjord while he’s off on other magical adventures.
.
.
.
We’ll be riding the energy of the New Moon by setting intentions, calling in new opportunities and prosperity from a heart-centered place and ending with a meditation that will remove any fear we may have of the future.
.
.
.
Let’s remove that false fear - which is really only based on our past experiences and don't have to inform or shape our futures because we can do, be, create ANYTHING we decide - so we’re able to open our hearts and ourselves to new possibilities and create the lives we’ve always dreamed of!
.
.
.
This will be my first official group class that I’ll be teaching and I’m super nervous and excited all at once – Kjord’s got some big shoes to fill! It would be lovely to see some friendly faces fill the room. Hope to see you all there!! Xxxxx
.
.
.
p.s. I'll be subbing next Tuesday (9/26) and Thursday (9/28) at 7pm too - will post more announcements!

I am feeling incredibly happy in this moment. While the past few years of my life have been filled with extraordinary challenges that I had no idea how I was going to overcome, I can look back - especially over this past year - and feel incredibly proud of myself for all I've accomplished.

Four years ago, I quit my life as a Production Manager, moved to Austin and became a plant-based chef. I returned to LA a year later and became a Holistic Health Coach. After 14 years of practicing Kundalini Yoga on-and-off, I was accepted to the work exchange program for Teacher Training at Yoga West last October and I'm now a Kundalini Yoga Teacher. In the past two months, I've completed Level 1 of my Breathwork Healer Training (2 + 3 will be in Nov + Dec) and Levels I + II as a Reiki Healer (will complete Levels 3 + 4 in Feb to become a Reiki Master). I feel like all the puzzle pieces of my life are finally coming together. The work I'm embarking on doing in the world is making sense. I can take my background in health supportive cooking, holistic nutrition and coaching and combine with all of my new trainings to create the kind of life and career I want. One that feels authentic to who I am and allows me to be of service utilizing my innate gifts.
The work I do with Food by Bri is growing and expanding. I'm working one-on-one with clients doing energy healing, teaching meditation and mindfulness, creating workshops and International Yoga + Wellness Retreats and who knows what else will evolve from all of this! I'm so excited to diver deeper with my clients emotionally and spiritually doing work I love, that I can finally take ownership of knowing that I am really good at and that has also been extraordinarily life-changing in my own path towards greater happiness and healing.
I'll be rebranding Food by Bri over the coming months, updating all my offerings and transforming Food by Bri into something that better reflects who I am today. I can't wait!! xx

DAY 3 | JUDGEMENT
When I first launched, Food by Bri, my sister would push me, telling me I needed to write for my blog. My response would always be, I don’t know what to write! I need someone to give me topics and deadlines! I felt overwhelmed & paralyzed by it all.
What was really happening is that I was full of fear. Fear of putting myself out there and being judged or criticized. Fear that I wasn’t good enough, I was a terrible writer and to have my words out there for publicly to be dissected and judged was too much for me.
Not long after my discussion with my sister, I was on @MarieForleo’s site reading the comments to one of her posts and happened upon one from the founder of a blog I loved, @TGWKMagazine. In @Steph_Watanabe’s comment, she seemed like she was having a tough day so I wrote her a short note letting her know how much I loved her blog from the beautiful design to the amazing content. A few days later I was surprised to receive an email from Steph asking me if I’d like to be a guest contributor. I was totally taken aback and felt simultaneously terrified + excited b/c the Universe just handed me everything I had asked for. I had no excuses.
Through Steph's loving, kind, PATIENT guidance, this amazing woman helped me gain the confidence to step into my role as a writer. It was through this process that I finally realized I didn’t have to be the best writer. All I needed to be was authentic + speak from my heart.
I have come to love writing and while I still don’t write on my own for my blog (yet!) I love using @HenryLohmeyer’s online courses as the creative space to express myself b/c they give me the structure I need to follow through even if they’re not always on time or in order!
Henry’s courses are just beautiful. He always creates a safe space for our groups where there is absolutely 0 judgment, just an extraordinary amount of love + support for the work we do, which can often be incredible raw + vulnerable.

While judgment + fear still surface, I've come to a place where I feel safe + confident enough to push past them both and write b/c I love it.

DAY 7 | PATIENCE .
.
.
“For the flower, it is fully open at each stage of its blossoming. We do ourselves a great disservice by judging where we are in comparison to some final destination. This is one of the pains of aspiring to become something: the stage of development we are in is always seen against the imagined landscape of what we are striving for. So where we are - though closer all the time - is never quite enough.” - Mark Nepo

This is a photo I took of my friend in Ojai celebrating the New Moon and eclipse. We spoke about the beauty + patience of trees and growth. This tree stole my heart and reminded me of the importance of being present, patient and grounded even amongst the chaos of the world...

DAY 5 | HIDDEN .

DAY 4 | SHAME
.
.
Just over a year ago, my life basically fell apart. After a series of challenging life events, I lost most everything and had no choice but to move into a 1-bedroom apartment with my mother. While I was and am extraordinarily grateful for the home she had so generously given me as a place to rest my head, it was far from what I had imagined my life to look like at 44 years old.
.
.
Even the two years leading up to that point were a huge struggle. My new career was not working out in the way I imagined, my life savings ran out, not much was coming in and I felt utterly lost as to what to do next. I had no idea how to fix my life.
.
.
I put myself in a horrible position and had no choice but to ask for help from family + friends. It was the hardest thing I've ever had to do especially not knowing if or when I could ever repay them. The guilt and shame was truly almost more than I could bear. I think I cried more in that one year than I had in the previous ten.
.
.
While the guilt + shame are issues I still deeply struggle with, I've come to understand that this all needed to happen. These past few years were not really about making a career change – but this time was really about me unknowingly embarking on a huge spiritual awakening. All these events pushed and stretched me way beyond my comfort zone. They forced me to ask for help, to be more vulnerable than I had ever been in my whole life and to face some deep, fucking insecurities and issues of self worth that I didn't even realize were there.
.
.
These years have been extremely challenging but I'm so grateful for every moment. These experiences have helped me learn + grow exponentially, to trust myself more deeply and have shaped me into the teacher, healer and writer I'm becoming.
.
.
I am so deeply grateful for all of my family + friends who have unconditionally loved and supported me through every up + down. I do not take them or their love for granted, ever. I’m also deeply grateful for the new community of friends I’ve made over the past two years who have become my family. I love these peeps with all my frickin’ heart and I don’t know what I’d ever do without them. .
