~ Bengkung Belly Binding ~
I first saw this on @vyana.ma’s babylist and thought it was so beautiful. This is the Moonflower wrap from The Art of Wellness on Etsy, there are so many lovely colors to choose from. It is recommended to wait at least 6 weeks for cesarean births to wear it, I tried it one week postpartum and it was definitely way too much too soon. This is a Malaysian technique, though there are cultures all around the world that have a similar practice, helping to bring physical, emotional and spiritual benefits to the mother as she takes the time daily for self-care and connecting to her body. This can also be used to symbolize the closing of the pregnancy portal. I like how it helps to keep my posture in check, and I feel supported all around, especially my wombspace 🌸

Benefits of Belly Binding
* Provides postural support for the torso and organs as they return to pre-pregnancy position
* Supports and assists abdominal wall healing and diastasis recti recovery
* Supports the body's natural spine and posture realignment post birth
* Constant pressure on the torso and abdomen hastens healing by reducing water, fat and air in the tissue and cells
* Stabilizes loose ligaments
* Helps to prevent and relieve lower back aches and strains
* Prevents slouching while feeding or holding your child

Women. You are divine and your body is incredible. After going through a pregnancy I’m even more in love with you all, with being a woman. Thin, thick, short, tall, dark, light, shaved pits, hairy legs, cellulite, stretch marks, whether you have a vaginal birth or a cesarean birth, whether you breastfeed or formula feed, whether you carry a child or not...you are what you are, who you are, and you are beyond beautiful, you are perfect as you are. Of course we are not our bodies but it is the vessel that holds us while we are here, so drink that water and refresh yourself, pick out your favorite essential oils and anoint yourself, dance in the sun and love yourself, eat some fresh fruit and thank yourSelf

Our Birth Story
What is my dream birth? My answer will be different now. My dream plan was to have a water birth but it didn’t align that way. My prayer throughout this pregnancy was to lead us to the perfect place to deliver, and was told “the soul chooses where it wants to be born...baby is leading the way”. I thought we were going to birth in Bali at @bumisehatbali but when we went there they told us the government made them shut down their birthing tubs because they don’t approve water births. Then the Mt. Agung volcano erupted so we decided to birth in California and ended up at Mission Hospital in Orange County
I had an amazing doula sister @_ladylibra_ & prepared everything as best as I could for an unmedicated hospital birth with no interventions. I was honestly scared of having to birth at a hospital & kept saying that I’d rather give birth in the woods. I did the @brownrootsbaby ~ Love Your Labor: 4 Weeks to A Magical Birth, which was so informative, but I never went into labor. I couldn’t tell you what a “contraction” feels like. I was 2 weeks and 2 days “overdue” & the doctor wanted to induce me at 38 weeks, I said no, “my body knows...baby will come when baby is ready”. .
March 8, 2018. I slept in that morning and missed my doctors appointment. I was tired from being there all day the day before doing nonstress tests, and everything looked fine, though the amniotic fluids were on the lower side. When I called they said it didn’t matter how late I was, the doctor wants me there. I took my time, made breakfast, joined @woman.rising for her Women’s Day meditation, then took a Lyft to the hospital
The nst wasn’t looking great so they pushed me in a wheelchair to labor and delivery for more testing and hooked me up to an IV. I asked the nurse if they were going to try to give me Pictocin, she said “you don’t have to do anything you don’t want to do”. I felt safe with her. I heard his heart beating strong on the machine like it did throughout the entire pregnancy and thought I would get to go home soon. My mom arrived to pick me up, Aubert was at work. Then the sound of his heartbeat dissapeared...(continued in comments) 📷: @jamieerinblank

There is nothing more beautiful than to bare witness to the Divine Feminine rising! A huge thank you to all the wombyn who dived deep with @crystalladyluna and @divinedavana in the healing waters of the Divine Feminine sister circle at Sunday's gathering. Be sure to give them a follow and tag them in your posts if you would be interested to join future wombyn's gatherings. 💜 "The deep Feminine, the mystery of consciousness, She who is life, is longing for our transformation as much as we are. She holds back, allowing us free reign to choose, nudging us occasionally with synchronicities, illness, births and deaths… But when we make space for Her, she rushes into all the gaps, engulfing us with her desire for life and expression. This is what She longs for, this is what we are for: experiencing the Feminine through ourselves. We simply need to slow down, and find where to put our conscious attention. And it is this, this willingness to look again, this willingness to put consciousness onto our places of unconscious, to express what we have always avoided, which starts the process of unblocking, so that She may flow through." - Lucy H. Pearce ✨

Moving from conditional to unconditional love is a painful process for the ego and blissful process for the soul. Anyone who has ever had their heart broken open that they may truly love beyond conditions and expectations, knows that many tears have to flow to wash away all the ways we have learned to deny love. No longer can I or will I deny love, even though it doesn't often make sense to my logical mind. For it was only in listening to love that @divinedavana and I let each other go, and in letting go I love her more than I ever thought possible. 💛

Tears begin to flow as I feel Davana in my heart. Tears of love, gratitude, and celebration of who she is and how she walks upon this earth! She is love, grace, and beauty embodied into form and I am so blessed to have walked beside her on this path. Davana was called to solitude in the mountains for her 30th solar return, so while she communes with nature in heartfelt surrender, my only wish is for love to fill her heart from all of yours. If you feel inspired please send her your love, a gift, a wish, or even a message to express how she has impacted you on your path. If you haven't connected with her yet then check out her feed and give @divinedavana a follow. 🙏

Happy bearthday, dear Davana. I love you more than words could ever express. I love you beyond time and space. I love you as you are. Thank you for your beautiful presence in my life and for filling my heart with the sweet fragrance of your love. 🌹

re-share from Medicine Woman @thuleheals:
May our yoga not just be another form of exercise but sacred movements that open a portal to the wisdom in our body's memory.
May we breathe with consciousness,
move in yin, slow attentive intuitive awake.

May we dance with the elements
May our bodies be free to remember and honor ourselves as a divine temple.

May all the false selves fall down from our waists back into the earth transformed into light for others to pick up as blessings from our lessons and sacrifice.

And as we heal or reveal ourselves may the healing touch another living being on the planet. As we gift ourselves may another receive the gift through the portal we create.

Oh divine {Ma} mother this is our intention as we move to sync with you. - Gogo Thule

Introducing the LOVELY @divinedavana as our featured yoga + intuitive movement guide! 🌼

Davana May Singletary shares the light, life, and love of the Davana Flower. Used medicinally, the essential essence/oil of Davana (artemisia pallens) has many healing properties and contains the power to deepen spirituality, and enhance positive energy. It was the discovery of Davana essential essence that led Davana to a powerful awakening that shifted her life. She now honors her namesake by guiding others on their paths in exploring the healing power of the Plant and Tree Kingdom, movement, sound, and breath. Connecting to her roots, to the Earth, to herSelf, has been a vital part of her journey. She gives thanks for the loving guidance of wise elders who taught her to listen to the whispers in her heart, which guide her path forward as she shares the timeless truths of living in harmony with nature through the revival of ancient wisdom and practices. The Divine Feminine Rises 🌹 .

This was my first time ever doing this pose, #visvamitrasana. I thought I was going to have to skip out on this one, or modify somehow, but I tried, and tried, and tried some more. Determination. Strength. Balance. Flexibility. Gratitude

from the heart
is your responsibility

Make this your intention
to live responsibly by
aligning your heart
with the Creator

Responding from this able
place is a source of power
that further reinforces
your commitment

Accept myself and Love myself exactly as I Am, where I Am. Feeling deep gratitude for everyone and everything. All the lessons, all the learning, all the laughs, all the life, all the darkness, all the love, all the light. Thank you, I love you. 🌸 To the ones in abusive relationships, to those accepting physical/emotional/psychological/ verbal abuse (romance, friendships, family, workplace, self) this partner can be seen as a mirror, reflecting back to you your thoughts and feelings about yourself. Accepting this behavior slowly eats away at the soul. How much will you take? 'What you allow is what will continue' so be kinder to yourself, love the little child inside and (hand)Stand Up for yourself. You might fall many times, but up up up you rise 💗
"Turn down the volume of your negative inner voice and create a nurturing inner voice to take it’s place. When you make a mistake, forgive yourself, learn from it, and move on instead of obsessing about it. Equally important, don’t allow anyone else to dwell on your mistakes or shortcomings or to expect perfection from you."
- Beverly Engel, The Nice Girl Syndrome: Stop Being Manipulated and Abused -- And Start Standing Up for Yourself

"She may have a wild soul but she's a lover of simple things and quiet places" ~Omoehi S. Ehixojie


This week was our last class with @thegaiaschoolofhealingca before our presentations and graduation. We sat with plants for the third eye, crown chakra, and nervous system including Lavender, Holy Basil, Elder Flower, and practiced Shamanic Body Work. In Love. What a life-changing journey we have been on together and I am soul grateful for Spirit guiding me here. There were definitely many times during school that I thought I was doing something "bad" studying plant spirit medicine and calling ourselves green witches. I've had to completely rewire my brain from programing and let go of many deep seated fears. Women have been persecuted for doing what we are doing, and now we are back to bring in the New Paradigm, healing with the plants, Love over fear. Together we hack our nervous system, rewild old pathways that we no longer want to take, and create beautiful new ones. We rewrite the story and rise. Resistance might be met along the way but keep on trekking we must, We May! 🔮🌿 "The witch has long been a symbol of fear not because she can harness forces that transcend this mortal coil, but because she embodies the powerful femininity free from male influence or ownership. Indeed throughout history the figure of the witch has both challenged and reflected patriarchal narratives about female power, making her one of the most enduring feminist icons of all time...Accusations of witchcraft were once used to police female behavior (and still are in a staggering number of countries around the world), but now more than ever, witches have become symbols of women rising up against the odds. As long as reproductive rights, wage equality, sexual freedom and sexual assault remain major issues in feminist struggle, the witch will remain an archetypal expression of our frustrations and of our strides for power beyond patriarchy." - Kristen Korvette

It is an honor to announce that I will be teaching at the Spirit Weavers Gathering Moon Session! #FlowerandFlow: Sacred Plant Medicine and Magical Movement. Women from all over the world come together to learn, share, blossom, and grow, and I am deeply grateful for this opportunity. Who here will be attending @spiritweavers this year? May Flower Moon Blessings to you all 🌸🌕🌿 "Spirit Weavers Gathering is a five day celebration of cultures past, a remembering and practicing of basic human skills to ensure the survival of the body and the soul. Fermenting foods, weaving, dying fabrics, creating ceremony, sharing meals at night and dreams in the morning, drinking tea, and making plant medicines- singing songs, together as a community- these were the common knowledge ways and part of the simple pleasures of a life lived in balance and harmony with nature. Let us gather together as Women and share our skills in remembrance of the beauty path and an honoring of our Ancestors.
So many women are awakening and remembering these ways at this time. Many of us have been called into the depths to uncover the #roots of who we truly are and explore ways of walking in the world that are in alignment with both our deepest truth and our highest potential. We believe that this remembering comes through our connection with our great planetary Mother. We recognize our symbiotic relationship to the earth, and that it is to our direct benefit that we take good care of her, but more than being connected to her, we seek to understand that we in fact ARE her. We are not separate from her, and small actions on our part have a great impact on her.
We come together each year as women of like mind and heart in the hope that through our participation in this larger community we may be inspired, empowered, and supported by one another and the by the new skills we exchange...We desire that Spirit Weavers be a place where you can always return to to offer and receive love and companionship and tools through all phases of the divine feminine journey, from maiden to mother, from mother to crone and on into the great unknown." -spiritweaversgathering.com

✨ Essential Oil Wizardry ✨

We're so grateful for the plant medicine our brother @essentialoilwizardry provides! 🙌

We first connected with Docta Nick at @libfestival and enjoyed many of his essential oil blends throughout the festival. Soon after @divinedavana and I ran into him synchronistcally in San Luis Obispo and discovered that it was the home of his operations. We had at that point just recently moved to the central coast, so it felt great to connect with local tribe who was on the vibe! 🌿

The Docta is passionate about reconnecting people to the power of healing plant medicines and we're grateful for the light house hub he's held down in SLO. We just learned at @lucidityfestival that the Docta has an amazing offering for those who are interested in learning more about herbal medicine. Essential Oil Wizardry will be hosting an immersive retreat at @luciduniversity's Trillium campus in Oregon. 🌲
