Today's creation
πŸ•‰

Every time I make a mala, I am over come by the beauty that is held within it. It now exists, something that did not exist before. And all in a beautiful combination of pieces gathered from this earth (stone and wood)
πŸ•‰

Today I am reminded that there is so much beauty to behold in every aspect of this human experience, and yet it just is. It is not beautiful or ugly. It just is. But until my mind can release itself of the story, of the constant contrast, I choose to see the beauty in all of it πŸ•‰

May you too see the beauty in every moment of your life.

Today as I was meditating and sending out some love to a family going through a really tough time. I envisioned pots of soil rising up and these sweet little sprouts coming up from within it. The call was to ask for a feeling of being rooted in well watered soil and the air and the sun to meet them and give them what they needed. As I was feeling all of this, a vision of a little plant ran out of the pot and I paused. I asked that they feel so sure of this feeling that they don't need to feel frantic and leave the pot. πŸ•‰

In that moment, I saw myself in that, as I think we all do when we notice we are one. At that moment I prayed for gentleness for all of us. So many times do we think things are not happening fast enough or the way we want them to happen and so we become frantic!
We run towards it (and sometimes away). And all i saw was that little plant loose.
It no longer had the support to keep it upright or the sun to meet it to give it energy. It was on its own. It broke my heart. πŸ•‰

But I have to ask myself, how many times have I gone it on my own? How many times have I proceeded frantically, forgetting my roots? Removing the sunshine. This sweet little plant is all of us. Desperate, Failing, Fearful.... if we run. πŸ•‰

Today, as I have been moving and shifting , I am asking love to help me plant my roots back in and rehydrate these roots. I am going to receive all that the sun has to give (knowing I am worthy of it all), I am going to breathe in life and I am going to trust that what is happening outside my pot cannot be helped with me running towards it but instead with growing within my pot. In my pot is where I can be strong for those around me. πŸ•‰

May your faith root deep enough that doubt/fear/worry/anxiety never entices you to leave your pot. β™‘ .

This beautiful soul sends out a weekly channeled message from the angelic realm and my heart is so grateful to have these letters of encouragement 🌱
Here is a bit more from that message and then scoot on over to her page and DM her to get on her email list 🌱 β€œDo not diminish yourself for someone else’s comfort. Do not doubt yourself because you cannot see the way. β™‘

The feeling in your heart, your soul, your knowingness of the path ahead is what you are to follow. β™‘

Fear not the doubters, the naysayers, and the criticizers. Trust your heart. β™‘

Don’t give in to those who diminish you for their own gain, for they are truly only seeing a reflection of themselves in you, and it is one that they are not yet ready to claim for themselves. β™‘

You were born to do this work, right here, right now. In your own way, and in your own time...." 🌱 .

When we decide to trust the Universe/God/Life/Love we quickly realise there is nothing for us to control. We are just to observer what is. πŸ•‰

Feeling through this one today... I can be a great avoider in so many aspects of this life experience. With life responsibilities, business, relationships. Anytime it seems "tough." I hope things will just go away on their own. Like a child squeezing their eyes shut while sticking their fingers in their ears, singing "lalalalalalalala..." This is my false sense of control. There is the thought that it can even be avoidable. ...and I love myself for it. I am growing in every moment of everyday. Today, this is my new rememberingβ™‘ πŸ•‰

Take courage and feel something that you have been avoiding or accusing. What is trying to be controlled? Is it possible to just let it be as it is? What needs to be dealt with in this moment. What is your heart guiding you to do.
Just take it moment by moment, acknowledging what it is without wanting to change it.
Allowing trust to fill you, knowing that everything that is happening is Divinely guided β™‘ πŸ•‰ .

Our new #mugs
But them online or at the Toronto Yoga Conference this April! πŸ•‰

May every moment of everyday remind you of all the love that is around you. πŸ•‰

May each moment that feels like there is no love in sight propel you forward to love even deeper, to be of greater service, to be the love in action. For it is in those moments where love feels lost, that love is reminding you to shine. πŸ•‰ .

It is so easy for our minds to jump so far forward that everything in this present moment feels impossible. But of course it would, you are no longer in this moment, in the vastness of what is now possible. πŸ•‰

This very thing is something I struggle with on a daily basis, heck, a minute-to-minute basis! 😜 πŸ•‰

But is it true? In this very moment, is there really not enough time?

Not what will come. Not how much time we think it will take. Not with all the other things we also need to get done. Not with all the ideas of how long it took us before. Right now, in this moment, is it possible that there is more than enough time? πŸ•‰

For me, when I catch my# ego running ramped with #fear that I just can't get it all done*arghhh* I take a quick moment and ask is that true? Most of the time I realize I can't really know for sure if there is enough time unless I begin to work on the task. If I begin in this moment. Not later, not before, just now. πŸ•‰

After bringing #mindfulness to this #habit of mine, I have been amazed at how much I have been able to get done and can see how little gets done when I tell myself "there's not enough time" πŸ•‰

May today be filled with moments where you bring your #awareness to what is happening now in the vastness of #time .

This is something I struggle with personally. I love starting things... But seeing them through, had been a challenge. πŸ•‰

This year, things have shifted in me. I have a greater desire to set in motion the steps to complete the tasks I have started since 2009! 9 years. 9, the number of completion. It's time to gitter'done. πŸ•‰

As I post this to keep the reminder of the intentions I have in my heart, I want to extend to you to love to help you get through what you have been putting on hold. πŸ•‰

May we bring all that has been started but never completes to full completion, giving space and allowing life to bring newer and grander experiences to us. πŸ•‰ .

Today I want to breathe in tolerance. Tolerance for how others choose to live their lives. Tolerance for things to work out just the way they do. Tolerance with my own expectations. Tolerance for others beliefs. πŸ•‰

None of this means I have to agree with another. It's just an acceptance; an unattachment to how I think it should be. πŸ•‰
With each mindful, present breath, I reach in a little deeper and remember my capacity to be tolerant/understanding.

Allow yourself to trust your instincts - that deep knowing. πŸ•‰

No need to justify.
No need to defend.
No need to make sense of it.
No need to prove anything. πŸ•‰

It just is. Only you need to believe. πŸ•‰

Allow Life to guide you through your knowing. πŸ˜™ .

I am the awareness of all that is experienced....
πŸ•‰

What are you experiencing in this moment? Are you aware? What do you identify with? πŸ•‰

For me, there is a discomfort in my lower abdomen, like the kind I get when I'm about to get my period, there is a frustration with my book as it slides off of me every time the bus slows down or speeds up and a sense of gratitude and fasination that I can even post something to the internet for others to read while I ride the public bus.... But I am really none of these things. I am the awareness of these experiences. πŸ•‰

It's interesting as I try and navigate from this new place of "knowing".... more like remembering.
πŸ•‰

Who are we, but the awareness of our experiences. πŸ•‰

For now, I will still identify with my feelings as I learn to articulate this new understanding. πŸ•‰

Today, I am REMEMBERING.
πŸ•‰

What are you remembering about the truth of your youness?
#intentionalbeads #thepowerofrepetition #awareness #beingpresent #beherenow #iam #remembering #inspiration #inthemoment #experience #thismoment #whatareyouexperiencing #whatareyouidentifyingwith #identity #love #compassion

We all experience thoughts that are stressful. It can be a worry about the future, a reminiscing of the past about how things "should" have been or a present experience that is not going as we expected. πŸ•‰

In the same light, so are the people around us, and so quickly do we project these feeling on each other. πŸ•‰

Instead of engaging and perpetuating these heavy feelings, try this:
Without devaluing the other's experience, a loving response of "I am sorry you feel that way" can go a long way. πŸ•‰

It allows us to reflect and notice this is not our intimate experience. You too do not need to worry, panic, anger... πŸ•‰

This statement allows the person (or yoursel) to reflect on how they really feel, and that is a beautiful and generous thing to do. πŸ•‰

It may not always feel generous to the recipient as we have sometimes expected others to engage and throw all their energy into our stressful beliefs. πŸ•‰

If another doesn't engage, then we are solely responsible for our feelings. That can be scary when you are not used to doing that. πŸ•‰

So, just be mindful how this statement may effect the people around you. Let it come from a space of deep love that knows the other person can get through their feelings. You do not need to rescue them. Just hold space for them as they feel through it. πŸ•‰ πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•
Sending waves of love as I honour your feelings and my own. πŸ™

I was sitting in meditation a couple days ago and this is what came through...
the words "financial freedom" or any "freedom from something" sat within me. πŸ•‰

It felt uncomfortable.
Not true.
Because it's not.
πŸ•‰

If I require any THING to bring me freedom, I am now bound to that thing to keep me free. So then, am I really free? Am I? πŸ•‰

I am free because I am free! πŸ•‰

It doesn't get any simpler than that. Freedom is my state of mind. It is the perspective I carry. It is the essence of who I am. πŸ•‰

Nothing can give or take that away. My heart, my spirit are free. My creativity, my passion and my action are free.
And so is yours. We are all free. πŸ™
πŸ•‰

May today bring you peace as you sit with this knowing that you are free, with or without the "stuff"
You are so loved πŸ˜™

Enjoyed a beautiful stroll today with my family. After 3days away I need my fill 😜.
So grateful for time outside to recharge and have some fun. πŸ‚πŸπŸƒβ„
Wishing you all a very fulfilling Sunday πŸ˜™

Sending some sunshiny vibes your way 🌞

The sacred flow of yes! 3 days ago my sister offered me to travel with her for 2 days to #lax .
.
I have been in a crazy indecisive funk, but this felt like I needed to say yes to it. I quickly set about finding care for my daughter, blocking off my days at work and scavenging my house for my passport (a week ago I had to help my niece with her renewing passport and that's when i realized I had no clue where my passport was! Thank you Universe for giving me the foreshadow to look and not leave it to panicjing completely in the last minute and thank you @katie_lipman for helping me narrow down its location)
.
.
So here I am in Los Angeles, waking up in a cozy hotel bed! .
.
I pulled a card last night while on the plane, and this is the card I received. How perfectly aligned! It is amazing how we need confirmation for our actions and I am so grateful for it! And to boot... my little one was chatting on the phone with me and she randomly requested I take pictures of fish while I was away... do you see that beautiful fish on the card😜🐟 I love when I see these things all connect.
.
.
All I can think about is this children's song. It feels so appropriate as a mantra to navigate this life experience.
β›΅β›΅β›΅β›΅
"Row, row, row your boat gently down the stream. Merrily, Merrily, Merrily, Merrily life is but a dream.
β›΅β›΅β›΅β›΅
.
.
Sending you love as you too root into your sacred YES. (Just saying those words brings a rising and fluttering in my being)

Who am I to (fill in the blank)
Who am I to not (fill in the blank)
............................
In this moment YOU are the one that is inspired.
YOU are the one that feels the potential, the excitement, the need, the joy. ............................
In THIS moment it is on you. There are no other game players. There is no one to compare yourself to.
There is no competition.
It's just you and your dreams/desires. ............................
Will you see them through?
Who are you to deprive the world of your inspiration.
You are needed.
I am needed.
In our own way, with our own flare. ............................
Let's put it all out on the table. β™‘
............................
Sending you waves of courage! 🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊
............................

We are connected by love.

Sending you all some #Sunday #Love #Vibes
Where can you take a moment to reflect and root into love? What stressful thoughts can you investigate and turn them around into a loving thought/feeling?
Let's spread that kind of vibe today πŸ˜™

Before heading off to sleep, I just want to take a moment a give #gratitude for this lovely soul and creator @pixiecurio You are incredibly #inspiring Thank you for this beautiful deck and part of your soul. You are so #generous πŸ™ ...........
This year has started off with pulls in my heart in, what feels like, hundreds of directions.
.
Everything that needs to be completed and everything that wants to be birthed are all bubbling to the surface at the same time. It's a bit #overwhelming .
There is a specific #dream I was hoping to achieve but hummed and ha'd about it. So I reached for some #guidance and the #sacredcreatorsoracle deck was instantly the deck I turned to. These cards spoke right to my #heart They were a smack in the middle of my forehead. It's time to get #clear and take #inspired #action .
β–ΆSide note... this guide book also has these amazing meditations you can access through Chris-Ann's website that support the cards. #AMAZING .
So, after making space to feel what my desires are, taking action, missing the opportunity (or so I thought) and then taking an ever bolder step to see it through, I have committed to something AMAZING! .
I'll keep you posted and let you know what we are planning! ........ ........ ........
#Love to you all. ........
May all your #dreams come true (Aka: may you be bold and brave enough to strive for what you want/desire) .

As I sit reading my book (A mind at home with itself), I can barely make it through 10min before feeling this remembering of a truth for me
.
This thing I have forgotten
.
This thing I have also told myself is not acceptable.
.
...It is the art of asking and being asked of .

At any point in your life where you may find yourself in a temporary need, you are now in the position of offering someone the opportunity to be generous (the very nature of who you are)
.
If you needed nothing, others would never have the chance to be generous towards you
.
So then, the very active of asking is generous
.
What a BEAUTIFUL realization! Are you feeling as free as I am in this moment! πŸ’“
.

When someone asks you for something. Instead of thinking "how dare they" (probably because there is some space of lack within ourselves) we can reflect and see where we can be generous in this moment
.

Generous can look like giving exactly what is being asked of you, it can also look like giving within a boundary that makes your heart light up and generous can also look like a "no" to that person. Sometimes, it is a reminder to be generous to ourselves (knowing that the Universe is always taking care of all of us)
.

So thank you to everyone who has ever asked of me
.
Thank you for allowing me to express my generosity
.
And thank you for allowing me to ask of you
.
Thank you for showing your generosity, in whatever form it came in. πŸ™ .
