yesterday I felt drawn to get my first tattoo.. I decided to get the OM symbol.
after chanting OM in many yoga classes and going through an amazing experience, and feeling the vibrations of the entire room within my body. it was an energy which resonated with me and connected me to everyone and the universe. we are one.
OM is everything.
OM is the very seed of creation. ๐Ÿ•‰

it's happening. I have now booked my one way ticket to Bali to start my yoga teacher training in February. excited doesn't even cut it. I am so grateful to be able to start a path which I am so passionate about. ๐ŸŒ™๐Ÿ”ฎโœŒ๐Ÿฝ๏ธ

I am writing this, with the sound of the wildlife in the distance, and watching the sunset over the mountains. this time, this place is my sanctuary. I come here to practice yoga. when my breathe is aligned with my movement, it becomes my medicine.
I become still.
immersing myself in the beauty of nature.
it's strange to reflect and think how every action or event has landed me at this point. at times I have laughed and felt so happy, others I have wailed and felt low.
every event good or bad has/is happening for a specific reason to get you here. and even at this point in time if you don't feel in the right place emotionally and literally.
accept where you are. allow yourself to be vulnerable and be open for people to love you. acceptance is the first step to become present in the moment. once you do that your life will become a flow.

self love = happiness.
as we grow we learn the journey to love our selves is to be happy and content with the bodies we are in. "you as much as anyone in the universe, deserve your love and respect." - Buddha.
reconnect to the child within you, any negativity you think when you look in the mirror. stop. and think would you say these words to a child. no.
beauty, truly comes from within. take away the fancy clothes, the make up, the jewellery. your left vulnerable. you are you.
each and everyone one of us, has a quality which makes us all unique. we are all loved. loved from what comes within. love yourself unconditionally.

sometimes being still is bliss. when you stop and be present, listening to the sound of your breathe and just watch and listen to the world around you, things start to become clearer.
I have fallen in love with going to the beach every evening to do yoga, meditates, journal and simply to admire the beautiful ocean.
the sound of the waves keep me grounded and fills me with gratitude. it reminds me we are no different to the ocean, each breathe we take is like a wave or ripple in the sea.
the ocean has become my safe haven. ๐ŸŒŠ โ€ข
"I believe in the ocean curing all bad moods. I believe in the waves wiping away worries. I believe in sea shells bringing good luck. I believe toes in the sand grounding my soul".

I am writing this after a beautiful practice of yoga.
I feel as if I want to weep. but I am not sad.
it is as if I have released an energy which has held be back.
i feel lighter.
I am wrapped within love from the universe.
it is amazing how sometimes we feel an emotion which we cannot explain.
I am awake.
the abundance of gratitude I have for my body is indescribable. working subconsciously everyday. I can see colour. I can move my body. I am alive.
each day I feel I am rising. rising torwards my higher self. ๐ŸŒ…๐ŸŒ™๐Ÿ”ฎ

I am in a state of contentment. even though from the exterior I would be considered to be in limbo. I feel my soul rising.
connected to my passions I am wandering in a celestial paradise.
the last few weeks I have poured my heart and soul into writing and creating daily affirmations and mantras for myself. everyday I write them. I speak them out loud and feel every word I'm saying. โ€ข
everyday I ensure I do 4 things that make me happy.
1) morning yoga and meditation ๐ŸŒ™๐Ÿ”ฎ
2) I journal and I write what ever I feel โœ๐Ÿฝ
3) I run a long the beach every evening ๐ŸŒ…
4) I make sure I spend sometime in the sun, because who doesn't love vitamin d ๐ŸŒž
all these daily rituals I give to myself keep me grounded. everything is aligned and how it should be.

"I love my body, this incredible and complex vessel that is me. I am in awe of my body's ability to heal, nurture, to transform, to love, to flourish with vibrant health, divine energy and feminine beauty." ๐ŸŒ™๐ŸŒ…๐Ÿ”ฎ
to practice self love is one of the kindest acts you can perform. to keep your heart open, to allow yourself to love and cherish yourself for you. your beauty will radiate and shine and the people who are in your lives will always love you, for you. reconnect to the child within you. live freely.

I dance along side the change. it's what it means to be free. to be able to live in a state of nirvana.
once you let go of your fears of judgement, you begin to live a liberated life. guided by your intuition, you are connected with your body and soul.
I embrace my autoimmune disease. I no longer look for a quick fix but instead enjoy the path of natural healing. pouring love and nourishment into my body.
for some reason we recognise ourselves as isolated beings. disconnected from nature. as humans we go through growing and changing periods. sometimes we fall, but again we flourish.
we always see the beauty in nature, from the tree which is covered in leaves or the tree that has lost them. beauty is always in nature and there is no difference to us.
surrender your fears and be guided by love. love from us all.

one of the most delicious Buddha bowls I have ever had. how good does this look? Gold Coast I love you. I love you even more for having so many good vegan restaurants or restaurants with loads of vegan options. ๐Ÿ˜

today is #worldmentalhealth day, so I wanted to share a bit about my experience with mental health and what it is like travelling full time whilst suffering with panic attacks.
I first suffered a panic attack this year back in June and it was a feeling I had never experienced before, at first I didn't even know I had one. I felt suffocated. I felt as if the world had closed in on me and I felt helpless. this lasted for about 2 weeks straight, every night I would have a panic attack. as soon as the sun would set I would dread it, as I had the association of my first panic attack whilst I was in bed. the lack of sleep made me feel so far from myself I didn't feel like me anymore. I actually felt defeated and would just sob, I just couldn't understand how I got to this point in my life.
after a few days I sat and spoke to my mum, I opened up to her what I was going though. she hugged me and told me she had gone through the same thing for years. that was the first step to coping with my panic attacks and anxiety, being open and honest.
I would spend hours and hours analysing ways to stop them. all I had in the back of my head was, what I am I gonna do if I have one on the plane, or whilst I'm away travelling? I'm completely alone then. I was so worried my anxiety was going to stop me from living the my dream.
I went away for a few days and decided to get my life back into a routine and become more centred in order to control them. I started doing yoga and meditation every morning and evening, it helped me get a grip of the world. if I was living in the present I had no worries about what "could" happen as it was 'maybe' and in that moment in time I was fine and safe. it took a lot practice to get to that point made I made progress. I also stopped going on social media and limited my time, especially first thing in the morning and before I went to bed. we forget how fragile our minds are, everyday we are confronted with harsh realities and sometimes we need to know when to put our phones away and concentrate on something which brings us value. my anxiety will always be there but I feel in control now. remember it's okay not to be okay.๐ŸŒ™๐ŸŒ…โค๏ธ

i surrender.
I surrender a part of me.
a part of me where I felt vulnerable and fearful.
I now choose to free my vulnerability and let it guide me to my true divine.
our insecurities hold us back from flourishing, we choose to hide because fear consumes us.
but now I have chosen to let go, everything becomes easier. everything turns into play. we worry less and let our intuition guides us.
all is well in my world and I trade love and acceptance with the world.
be free. be unique. flourish.
