How do you feed your soul?
⠀⠀
Creativity is one of the most fundamental ways I feed mine. Expressing who we are and how we see the world provides not only an outlet for ideas and emotions, but also a mirror in which we can more clearly see ourselves. I always wanted to be a creative director until I realized I already AM the creative director of my life. These shoots provide such an important outlet for me to be able to play, imagine, and hopefully create a feeling or raise an idea in another. ⠀⠀
When I was so graciously lent this skirt from @vintagebymisty , I thought can I actually get away with wearing this? It was so beautiful but a little outside the vision and theme I had in mind for the shoot. But let’s be honest, no one is doing yoga in the middle of the desert nor in a bodysuit, so why am I worried about the skirt!?
.
This IS about FANTASY.
This IS about ART.
This is about INSPIRATION. .
Which originally meant, the “immediate influence of God” or to “breathe into”. And when I look at all I create, that is what it is ALL about. This ongoing conversation with Source. With the higher me. Sometimes we must simply allow things to flow through us, to be expressed in physical form by us, even if their source is not of us. To drop the silly notions of the mind, that always wants to judge and compare. And simply to live more fully in this heart space, so it may flow. ⠀⠀
.
Do not judge your creative expression, for it may be your most powerful lense yet.
Remember you are the creative director of YOUR LIFE.

“There is no permission required from anyone, apart from yourself, to be and live your truth.” @alana_fairchild ⠀⠀
How often do we give our power away because of our perceptions and judgements against ourselves. We alter ourselves into what we believe is the most acceptable and desirable versions of ourselves. We want others to accept us, and yet we on some level, are not accepting ourselves. Our own criticism leaves us locked 🔒 into our own perceptions and stories, in which we turn our needs into external desires and needs. “If I could only be XYZ, then I would feel happy and complete.” And yet the object is always moving. It’s not until we turn inside and begin to truly work our way towards self love and acceptance that we will ever feel free from the judgement of others. We all have parts of ourselves we don’t like or try to keep hidden. So often we’ve pushed them so far into the shadows we don’t even recognize them in ourselves. Take the time to begin to unpack these stories and lost parts of self. Remember this is the work of a lifetime so be easy with yourself. And next time you are feeling judged or uncomfortable with the other, think how you may be contributing to the situation. Is the other mirroring your own behavior? I can also find ease in these type of situations when I remember how difficult it most be to live in another’s head. Remember if they are judging the outside so harshly, it is simple a mirror to how they treat themselves. 🙏 ⠀⠀

With new eyes 👀 .
As I travel back to the desert 🌵 today, I am bringing with me new perspectives and energy for my purpose and practice. One thing I love about being able to split my time this way, is that I’m consistently being able to remove myself from my patterns, both routine ways of thinking and being. I am able to see from a greater distance those habits which are both serving me and those that can be left behind. The summer offers a fluid way of being without the daily structure and demands. It’s a creative space in which I can play, explore and be without a need to accomplish or be anything. It offers me Kama, something I sometimes forget is equally important. .
Upon returning home, I am always struck by my space. I see things which I had gone blind too in the daily hustle and bustle. I am able to revive my space with the energy, flow and perspectives that I have cultivated over the summer. And although there is part of me that wants to hold on to this moment, I am ready to dive back into the people, places and opportunities that await me in the desert. ⠀⠀
Until next time Leucadia. 👋 ⠀⠀

How much consideration to you put into the astrological aspects of your birth?
⠀⠀
As you probably guessed my Sun sign in Scorpio! Most of us know our main (sun) astrological sign and even if we don’t put much weight into their philosophies may read our monthly horoscope. But how many of you have had your complete astrological chart made, and know you ascending and moon sign and North and South nodes? I just recently learned my North node (connected to fulfilling your dharma) is in Virgo! Wow,that was a shock! But in more deeply learning about the influence of these aspects on our life we can learn the lessons we must learn in order to walk from our karmic past and fulfill our dharma in this lifetime. Astrology is such a vast and deep area of study, but even a cursory examination can help us better understand our own nature and the shadows we may fall into.

We are all on our own hero’s journey. “The big question is whether you are going to be able to say a big hearty yes to YOUR adventure.” Joseph Campbell. ⠀
.
And the thing is, it isn’t just one yes. It’s a million little yeses that you make every single day. It’s the way you show up and choose to consciously live and receive each experience as an opportunity to learn more deeply about yourself. It’s about taking responsibility for your life path, your thoughts and energy. It’s in your willingness to look deeply within to understand our motivations and beliefs and how they are forming our reality. What is found outside, but a reflection of what’s inside. Stop trying to change others or the world by pushing your beliefs on them and investigate how your own beliefs are creating the world you perceive. ⠀⠀
Each day is an opportunity to start anew. Start making subtle shifts within and watch your world change.

Welcome to the Lionsgate
⠀⠀
Today on 8-8 the Lionsgate Portal is activated when the Sun, Sirius (known as the Spiritual Sun) and Earth move into specific points in the sky. It is considered a gateway into the heavens and higher realms of consciousness. During this time we are more able to feel the higher frequencies of energy from Sirius helping to raise our consciousness and tap into messages from our spirit guides. We can also heal deep deeded wounds and opening the heart chakra and third 👁 eye. (** Check out my IG story of this mornings kundalini practice with @libberated designed around taking advantage of this portal opening)
⠀⠀
Have you guys been feeling this? I sure have! Be mindful of messages you receive today and take time to tune into your own intuition. What life are you ready to LIVE NOW?

Sometimes we get attached.
⠀⠀
Even in our yoga practice, we find ourselves attaching to a way of practicing, a teacher, hell even our spot in class. Ironically this is the place where we are supposed to be practicing non-attachment and yet we get hung up on how we practiced and what we were able to do the day before, the week before, the years before. But when our attachments are removed we can become conscious of their hold on us. We more clearly see their influence on our ego and perceptions about the way something needs to be. But your practice is exactly that YOURS. You are the guru and only you have the keys to access the Universe within you. Your breathe, your movement, your internal landscape is accessed only BY YOU. Our teacher and guides simply offering suggestion and access points. Our environment helping mold and raise our vibration. Our openings and restrictions offer instructions on where we need to soften or dig deeper. The magic that is YOU is NOT ATTACHED to you being with anyone or able to do anything. It is simply about diving into the endless mystery of self. ⠀⠀

What if your gift was suddenly taken away?
⠀⠀🎁✨🎁✨🎁✨🎁✨🎁✨🎁✨🎁✨
Recently my friend @lotussky_ posed this question which struck me as I too was struggling with a similiar thing. After losing her beautiful singing voice for a few days she posed, what if your gift was taken away from you, would you’ve done enough? Would you feel that you have used and gave of it in service to the most of your ability? ⠀⠀
Now I’m not sure I would consider yoga my gift (more like the one I receive) but at the time I was struggling with it being stripped from me. My body sulked, but my mind more over was confused and frustrated trying to make sense of things. Even my passion project went dormant as I struggled to find my agni 🔥, that inner fire that is always burning so hot in me. On one hand, I felt guilty for feeling so ungrateful at everything I could still do and in the other, I couldn’t deny the flatness I was feeling. However, when this question was so eloquently posed by @lotussky_ it flipped my thinking. It helped me to realize that perhaps Spirit had stripped these things from me to LEARN 1) a greater appreciation for my body, thoughts (positive ones including mantra) and food as medicine 2) as a way of clearing and releasing past memories or trauma 3) as a motivator to use and share my gifts as they and our life is not a given. ⠀⠀
So with new perspectives, I show up on this journey into self and share what I can not as THE WAY but as one way, one life, one perspective on what brings meaning into the journey. I share here to spread the tools that have helped me along the way, to find community and kindred spirits, and as a reflection so I can more clearly see myself. 🙏

Happy Sunday!
⠀⠀
Waking up this morning on the mainland and I can not wait to get back to my practice. Lately, mantra has put a spell on me and I’ve used it over the last few weeks as a tool to bring me back into alignment. I’ve noticed as I’ve been using it more, how these Sanskrit invocations will just pop into my head and repeating them silently helps me stay focused on something bigger then myself. Especially on those mornings when I just wake up in a funk, I immediately try to shift into a silent mantra to reroute my thinking 💭 and shift my day. As I jump into my last week in Cali before returning to the desert, I plan on anchoring and integrating this and other layers I’ve learned over the summer to strengthen my practice back home. Waking up this morning rested, grateful and ready to share. Namaste sweet friends. ⠀⠀

How do we bow to ourselves? . 🧘‍♀️⚡️🧘‍♀️⚡️🧘‍♀️⚡️🧘‍♀️⚡️🧘‍♀️ ⚡️🧘‍♀️
To surrender to our own intuitive knowing, the part of ourselves which always knows the best path for us. I’ve always considered myself an intuitive person but this last year I have worked more consciously at balancing the feminine and masculine energies within myself. I’m a doer and for me the practice often comes in restraining, slowing down, and practicing ease within myself. I’ve had to learn to listen to the language that frames my inner dialogue surrounding this including feeling “lazy” or “regretful” for not showing up 100%. Even the act of “self care” has always been active to me, namely exercising. Even reading a book made me feel guilty, unless it was directly related to something I was trying to learn or accomplish. Being ill the last couple weeks has made me actually realize how far I’ve come in this regard. The old me would have pushed through, despite the recommended rest. I would have pushed the boundaries and my body to adhere to the false belief that rest was somehow not as valued as work. But as I work with the feminine and look to nature, I more deeply understand how equally important this time can be. Listening to what my body needs has allowed me to heal more quickly and with a greater respect for all my body does for me. Take time to examine your own deeply held beliefs and how you can better balance the energies within yourself. Everyday is a practice 🙏🧘‍♀️

I don’t know where I would be in life without my yoga practice. ✨✨✨✨✨✨ ✨✨✨✨✨✨
Illness has taken me away from my daily ritual the last couple weeks and its heighten my awareness to how much it informs my daily outlook and mood. To be honest, I’ve been in a funk and have had to learn to relay on other practices, like finding gratitude for what I am able to do, spending time in nature, and practicing Prananyama and meditation to lift my spirits. It can be frustrating to have something striped away when you feel you are doing things “right“ (with conscious attention and gratitude), but its also a powerful reminder that everything is not always in our power and the divine uses the most potent ways it can to speak to us. These last several days have offered me the opportunity to have a deeper dialogue with my body and how to tap into its own innate wisdom to heal. I watch so many people abuse their body forgetting how sacred its relationship is with the soul. Our bodies allow us to FEEL and yet so many of us are constantly numbing and abusing it in an attempt to avoid. But the FEELING is what allows our souls to communicate more clearly with us. To experience all which it means to be human. To listen to its yearnings — yes a little more of this and little less of that. We let our mind disturb this communication with its constant interruptions mistaking our thoughts for “truth” or worse yet the language of the soul. But the mind is a powerful instrument only when it is a servant of the soul. Learn to quiet the mind and tune into the language of the body and soul. Find gratitude for all it allows you to do. Treat it with reverence and respect. And most importantly listen to its wisdom, it has a powerful message for you ....not someday but everyday.
🙏

#stelari #bodywisdom #findgratitude

🙏 Awaken 🙏

To the higher me
The one thats within me
I exhault thee
And ask how shall I be?
I awake in the dream to find
The mystery is undefined
My soul will not be confined
By a life that is unaligned.
So I call on the divine masters
To repair this inner disaster
For fear be gone
And I’ll be calm
To loosen my grip
I let my ego slip
Into the sea
Where I shall see
What I was always meant to be.

Long, Slow, Deep

This was the second class I had the pleasure of taking with the famed #poweryoga founder @bryan_kest this weekend. Like the name suggests there is no where to go and no where to hide in this almost 3 hour decent into soul and other state of consciousness. No music or movement to distract you, simply long holds in which you simply breathe and listen to what surfaces. Similar to a yin practice, but after already completing an hour and half power practice the poses felt slightly more aggressive to my sore body. But let me tell you the results were unworldly. I would consider my ability to sustain, concentrate and not run from a practice like this to be above average as I regularly do 2+ hour practices, but even this got me. The essence of the practice was what was so magical. Teaching us to sit with our “stuff” to look at, see it, feel it, and ultimately breathe through it so we can let it go. Towards the end of the practice I even was able to gain access to things I’ve only been able to see or feel after an especially deep meditation or kundalini session. Ultimately this practice and @bryan_kest ‘s words reminded me what a powerful mirror this type of practice can be. We can not find anything with force, but what we can do is create the space and container for which we allow our emotions and body to communicate with us. Without an ear for this often subtle voice the desires of our ego and conditioning squash the wisdom, OUR WISDOM, that is always available to us if we would only be still enough to listen. ⠀⠀

Happy Friday Loves! ⠀⠀
Hope you enjoyed the new moon 🌙 last night! I had such a beautiful afternoon and evening with it and feel my fire 🔥 stoked for the coming weeks. Which had me thinking how critical our environment is to nurturing our emotional and spiritual wellness. Censoring what is allowed in is absolutely critical. That’s why you will never see negativity on my pages. Raw, real and sometimes tough emotions, yes but I believe in using this space to inspire, share knowledge and ask people to think more deeply about their lives. You will never find me sharing a political or social opinion. I don’t do transformations or yoga challenges but I will share with you how I’ve used my own practice as a mirror to gain greater self knowledge and connection with source. ⠀⠀
▪️
So.......my question for you loves, why do you come here? What lifts you up and motivates you? What would you like to see more or less of on these pages? Be honest! ⠀⠀
▪️
Perhaps many of you enjoy challenges and I would love to hear your feedback regarding this. The reason I don’t choose to post them on my pages is actually quite long. For one, my perspective from owning Stelari is quite different. I was constantly contacted by people asking me to donate to challenges. I know that companies and their hosts often use them in order to simple grow their influence. It’s a numbers game and one of the only ways to gain followers and get engagement especially with the new IG logarithm. ⠀⠀
▪️
But I am not here to collect I want to deeply connect. 👭👫👭👫
▪️
And more practically, my practice is sacred. I want to be immersed in my practice, not worried about snapping a good picture. The constant distraction and stress of that is unappealing to me. But I want to know from you guys, how do you feel about challenges? Do you do them? Do they help you evolve your practice?

Just as the water reflects the stars and the moon, the body reflects the mind and soul.
- Rumi
⠀⠀
Discovering what lies at the depths of our mind and souls, it’s by far the most fascinating topic of them all to me. Our subconscious mind undoubted ruling our bodies and what’s showing up in our daily lives, however most of us are completely unaware of what lies within. Not only does it hold all our patterning from childhood, but also our soul’s karma. I’m so fascinated by modalities and practices that are said to tap into this aspect of the brain so that we can truly transform our lives by creating new neural pathways in the brain. Amongst these are kundalini yoga, yoga nidra, mantra, and some plant medicines. I have seen the powerful effects of many of these modalities in altering some of my own personal patterns quite easily. What would have been challenging, if not impossible for the conscious mind to change, can somehow be deeply effected by these practices. ▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️
So I’m curious, for you healers, light workers, and other yogis interested in this area, what are some of the other ways to access this type of healing and programming and what has been your experience?
