This was me many moons ago.
-
And while I’m a whole lot different now, this image just reminded me of the inner superhero.
-
And let me tell you, there is nothing more superhero than a mama fully tuned in!
-
Loves, we have GOT to unite to break free of so much unhealthy programming that has been getting passed on through generations.
-
We’ve got to be willing to look at the shadows, most of which were put into our subconscious minds so early by people who didn’t know otherwise, and we have to heal and break the cycles.
-
We deserve it and our children deserve it.
-
We’ve got to speak up and stand our ground amidst the eye rolls and the misunderstandings.
-
Give our children the gift of knowing that who they are and what they do and don’t want matters.
-
Teach body agency and worthiness early on.
-
Give them room to be heard even before they can speak.
-
The time is now.
-
Just a few free flowing thoughts from a mama on this Saturday evening.

Today, I feel tired.
-
I’ve been in building and creating mode.
-
Much of it is exciting, a lot of it confronting, all of it divinely choreographed for not just me... but all of the beautiful beings I’m here to serve.
-
As a mama, I’m not sure that I’ll ever fully be able to “tune out” again. And that’s fine. I’ll take 80-90% and run with it when I can!
-
Lately though, my mind is running super speed with both things that inspire me and things that bring me great uncertainty.
-
To top it off, baby girl has been nursing extra through the night and it seems that the moment I hit my 80-90% sleep phase, I’ve got her rolling into me for her comfort.
-
It seems that sleep is a thing of the past and possibly the future. But the now?.. Not likely.
-
Which brings me to this reminder.
-
What do you do in that time in between? When you may not be exactly where you want to be but you’re not where you used to be and whatever is going on now is a little uncomfortable or tiring, etc?
-
I asked my guides this question some time in the middle of the night the other night and here’s what they had to say...
-
“Accept the present moment fully. It is ALWAYS there for you. And acknowledge how beautiful it is.”
-
So, I laid there looking at this perfect little gift from God and I repeated out loud, “I’m in full acceptance of this moment.”
-
Sleep is something I wish I had more of, yes. There are a lot of things I would like to have more of.
-
The greater lesson here though is that when we navigate life with gratitude and acceptance, we get to feel the flow and that beautiful sense of connectedness from right where we are.
-
And if we want change, great! We have the power to shift anything. First step though is the acceptance of what is.
-
Love to you all today! Especially you mamas that, like me, have gone past tired into some other territory that only a mama could understand!

IN A WORLD FULL OF “PARENTING TIPS” THAT ARE DEEPLY DISCONNECTED FROM OUR NATURE AND INTUITION... THAT IN TURN CREATE DISCONNECTION WITH OUR CHILDREN... DARE TO CALL BULLSHIT ON THEM ALL AND CONNECT.
-
Why?
-
Because our children deserve it and so do we.
-
Dare to let them be who they are.
-
Dare to be who you are.
-
Dare to acknowledge that they/you are equally wise and worthy, with growing room all the same.
-
Dare to be with all of the shifts and changes that you’re going through and celebrate them.
-
Dare to be with all of the shifts and changes that you’re going through and redirect them.
-
Dare to hold your ground and have healthy boundaries.
-
Dare to always come back to the voice inside of you that you know is true.
-
Dare to question the system and make changes.
-
Dare to encourage your kids to do the same.
-
Moral of this story... Things are changing. We are collectively being called back to a much more balanced, loving, intuitive way of mothering.
-
The mom guilt, the feeling disconnected with who we really are, the self doubt, the letting poor advise take us away from the purity of this mother-child bond... It’s going.
-
So let’s let it go gracefully.
-
There’s so much liberation on the other side.

Writing notes for the mamas in my exclusive program.
-
Had to share this one.
-
Simple, yet effective.
-
This of course also assumes that you’ve first actively moved toward that which you wish to transform.
-
It’s like planting a tree. First you plant, then you water, then you allow it to grow.
-
In what ways are you allowing transformation in your life today?

Question of the day...
-
What defines spirituality for you?
-
Answer below in the comments.
-
#spirituality #question #mommylife #momlife #reikimaster #reikimama #defineyourtruth #love #alignment #flow

THIS IS ME.
-
No filter. No photoshop. No posing...
-
Just wrapping myself up with a smile and a hat as my only accessory.
-
It wasn’t long ago that I found myself asking the question, “Who am I now?”
-
Surely, now that I’m a mama, I’m not who I used to be.
-
She’s in there. The experiences, the travels, the lessons that came both through playful joy and heart breaking tragedy.
-
But I’m so new.
-
And I’ve got a lot of “extra” to prove it.
-
I’ve got a scar where my baby came out when our birth plan went completely 180.
-
I’ve got plenty of extra belly still left over that I’m happy to let go of, but embracing while it’s there.
-
I’ve got much larger breasts full of milk.
-
I’ve got so many moments of tenderness pulsing through my DNA and skin.
-
I’ve got under eye circles. A lot less causal friends and a few more quality relationships.
-
But most of all, I’ve got ME. The me that I’ve been moving toward every moment up to now.
-
The me who has learned to love myself with the same ferocity and compassion that I love my child.
-
The me, who after so many photo shoots throughout my life covered in makeup... Walked into this photo shoot with whatever make up I had left after a day with my family, no time or desire to do any touch ups... Ready and willing to just BE.
-
Because amidst all that we DO mamas, we deserve more than anything, the right to just BE.
-
Without obligations or expectations. Knowing that through the lens of our children’s love, we are always and forever the focal point of safety, security and support. (Or at least we should be!)
-
I will not pretend that the journey of motherhood is always easy. I’ll also never downplay the absurd amount of joy that it can bring.
-
Collectively if we can get to a space of intuition and power and flowing with it, we will be much more well equipped to take care of ourselves and our families the way that we are designed to.
-
I’m done trying to please everyone.
-
Instead, I’m committed to finding peace in the beautiful chaos of motherhood, loving myself fully and freely and celebrating the uniqueness of my family.
-
Wanna join me? If so, let’s talk.

Sunday share and tip on what to do with hypersensitivity or an excess of heart energy.
-
It is totally natural to have a heart expansion when becoming a mama.
-
It’s a gift that helps you to be more available for and attuned to your child’s needs.
-
Butttt, there may be some balancing to do with that bursting heart as you maneuver all of the areas of your day to day life.
-
Something that works for me is taking that energy and dropping it down into my sacral chakra... Letting it turn into creative life force.
-
Let me know how it goes for you.

Mama has a lot going on, so I’ll just let this clip speak for itself.
-
LOVED working with this beautiful, powerful, diverse group of young women over at AMDA as they were graduating and embarking on their journeys into the professional world.
-
There’s something really magical about this group.
-
There is something so magical about WOMEN!
-
Thank you ladies for bringing my moves to life!
-
Would you all like to see the full piece?

#flashbackfriday to Christmas time 2015, when we had a hunch I might be pregnant (I was) but hadn’t confirmed it yet.
-
So much glow here.
-
Another lifetime...
-
Just reflecting on our journey together @marlon.iam.
-
We’ve basically lived through many lifetimes together in just a few years!
-
Thank you for being YOU.
-
Love you deeply.

Tag your love below... 💕👫👭👬

THE MOST ACCURATE MIRROR...
-
What do you see when you look at your children?
-
When I look at her, I see infinite potential, brilliance, bright light, purity, joy, a deep connection to who she is, health, glow, humor, inspiration, authenticity, and so so much more.
-
I believe that every being we ever come into contact with is a mirror to some extent.
-
This is the mirror I look into most often and wow am I thankful!
-
Because all of the beautiful, powerful, divinity that I witness in her is absolutely, 100% also in me.
-
Next time you feel yourself slipping into lower vibrational thinking...
-
Stop, breathe and look in the mirror. Or, the figurative mirror that is your child (or children) and love yourself with the same unwavering, heart opening, compassionate love that you have for them.
-
It is all right there.
-
Big love today everyone.
-
I see you. I honor your journey.

YOU ARE MOVEMENT.
-
You do not have to identify with being a “dancer”.
-
It is our nature to move. We are designed as infinitely expanding and vibrational beings.
-
But, we sure do tend to block the movement sometimes.
-
Especially as new moms.
-
So much to be concerned about. So much responsibility. So much going differently than expected.
-
I get it. I was there for some time.
-
The hips that I’d spent a lifetime moving and expressing with were carrying so much additional weight and the abs that helped me to feel strong had been cut open for an unplanned c-section.
-
I found myself hiding underneath big clothes.
-
Disconnected with my sensuality.
-
Robbing myself of so many opportunities to release in the best way that I know how.
-
Until finally I just couldn’t stay stuck anymore!
-
The journey of new motherhood is such a process, and while it always will be a process to nurture our children...
-
The nurturing of ourselves is our biggest tool in navigating motherhood from a space of peace and connection that I know we all desire.
-
This is footage of me, makeup free, having just gotten off of a call with my mentor, just improvising in my living room.
-
She reminded me that not only is my mastery in helping moms to connect with their truth, my mastery is also in MOVING energy.
-
Mamas, if you are longing to feel in your body again and to feel confident, comfortable and SAFE in your body... I’m here to guide you.
-
It’s not necessarily about the physical dance, but about what YOUR energetic dance looks and feels like.
-
Once I embraced the dance of motherhood like I would an actual dance... Giving myself permission to mess up and keep on going, to breathe deeply, to be in my body while doing it, to let certain things fly and to hold onto other things tightly...
-
To know that nobody will dance this dance quite like I will...
-
Everything changed.
-
And I want things to change for you too.
-
Message me and let’s MOVE.
