What is your body craving? ✨

Different food? More water? A new kickass workout plan? A crystal healing? Stretching or foam rolling? Sitting still and deep belly breaths? Is it craving you to Stop doing something? 🌻 Mine has been asking me to stop drinking coffee. It’s messing with my adrenals. It’s making me anxious and staying “busy”, not “productive”. I’ve been hooked for ~8 years. I drank 3-4 mugs (not cups lol) a day because I’d be exhausted a few hours later. ☕️ Did you know that caffeine is a stimulant because it binds to the same receptor sites as the molecules (adenosine) that tell your body to rest? ☕️ The more you drink, the more receptor sites for adenosine your brain produces. You need more caffeine to cover those sites to prevent sleepiness. ☕️ BUT when you stop drinking coffee cold-turkey, all of those adenosine receptors are wide open, and when the adenosine is the only one fighting for the site, there’s an overload of connectivity, making you sleepy af.
So, I’m cutting back (way back) to just half of a mug per day. It’s day 2️⃣✅ and I already feel my body thanking me for switching to this small amount and a gallon of water a day. You’re welcome, body 💛

18 weeks ✨ since I’ve used shampoo. One day I was on YT and somehow this “no-poo” video popped up. I’ve heard of the movement before, but a lot of “no-poo” activists use really weird concoctions on their hair. • ✋🏼💁🏻‍♀️ Not me lol. I don’t want any weird, toxic products in my body or on my skin, so why would I use it in my hair? Water works just fine and if you really massage your scalp, it’ll clean just fine! I even work out 5 days a week 🤦🏻‍♀️ PLUS, not using products makes your hair grow like a weed 🌱😏

3:30 AM ✨ is when I’d wake up for my coffee shop job. Every day. Gnarly leg pain, carrying 60 pounds of coffee bean orders up a flight of stairs, drowning myself with coffee, stuffing myself with pastries. Being way too tired to move after work, to exercise, to hang out with friends, to do all the cool shit I wanted to do. .
.
My next 2 jobs were relaxed front desk gigs. Answering phone for professionals..something that I didn’t want to do for the rest of my life. I kept telling my bf, “I Am going to work for myself. I Am going to own my own business. I Am going to be in charge of my time, my money, my life.”
.
.
Coaching fell right into my lap. As if it were a message from the You-niverse, right?? I signed up with my last bit of savings (seriously!) Now I have an opportunity to work for myself, grow my business exponentially, and help others change their lives like I’ve changed mine. It’d be selfish to not share this. Work out, live a healthy and balanced life, beat depression, actually feel and BE confident, find purpose, and help others do the same? What? This is real? (Yes, this is real). Leave some love of you want to discover what this opportunity can do for your life, too 💛

This year’s February (left) was one of the toughest months for me to ever live through ✨ Existential depression was choking me. I looked through life through dull, dead eyes. My brain, my heart, my soul hurt to the point where I thought my head would explode from the pain - and every second I wish it would have so I wouldn’t have to endure it anymore. Have you ever experienced that kind of pain?
🌙
By some fucking divine guidance and a patient af partner, I made it though. I dove deeper into who I was and got clear about what I didn’t want for my life. I kept telling Adam that I needed to be in charge of my life, time, money, and worth. 🌙
Today (right) I find love within Self every day. Even and especially the days that are hard, confusing, and emotionally rough. I no longer want to die, like I have for so many years. I know I Am my path. I love my past for what She has taught me. For making some stronger. For making me so glad to wake up a little more each and every day to my inner fucking magik and beauty, and to the magik and beauty of the world in all of its silly- and messy-ness.

ITS ABOUT THE JOURNEY
THEY WONDER IF THEY KNOW ME
ASK ME WHERE IM HEADED
I TELL THEM
ONLY UP
UP, UP, UP
CEPT THEY WANNA PULL ME DOWN
THEY CANT STAND TO SEE ME RISE THRU MY SOUND
THEY EYES GET BLINDED WHEN I FLASH MY SOUL
VEST POCKETS OF MANIFEST IS WHERE I STASH MY GOALS
KING THREE'S MY CURRENCY,
CREATION OF THE TRINITY
LIKE ME AS I AM WHEN IM STRIPPIN OFF THE SIMILES
ONLY ENERGY FOR DESTINY IS MY FUEL FOR ETERNITY
I BURN SAGE WITH SAGES IN TIMES OF UNCERTAINTY
FOLLOW ME ONLY IF YOUR HEART INHABITS GROWTH
THE CAT SEES IN THE DARK FALLING DOWN THE RABBIT'S HOLE

As I explored the ruins of Hampi a woman, sweeping the shrines, called to me. She unlocked the gate of a particular shrine and said “Have a look. This one is special.”
The shrine enclosure was very small and held only the image (picture) carved into the floor.
“This is for Shiva” she said and left me in there alone.
This peculiar lingham is polished to a silver reminiscent of the moon,; one of Shivas symbols. Usually in the centre there would stand a rounded stone representing Shiva. Here, instead we find the footprints of Shiva.
Coiled around the footprints lies a serpent; another of Shivas symbols.
I exited the shrine and the woman locked the gate behind me.
I was unable to fathom any deeper relevant meaning until last night.
In a dream I was told to change my life direction and walk the opposite way. I did so and when I looked down I saw the path I walked was this very same silver serpent.

Where is your favorite place outside to sit, be, be seen? Does the ocean-side call to you or perhaps it's a tree you climbed as a child... or perhaps you're happiest next to your garden? Where do you feel most yourself?

A few minutes before this photo I swore I was going to cry, or scream.
A few days into a “pms-less” period was quickly morphing into feeling like my body had turned to mush; a full-on-late-blooming PMS moment, mid period.
I felt puffy and quite frankly like poo. A pain in my shoulder flared up.
I was tired and danced a bit too aggressively with my silly thoughts, which some may have the capacity to do.
However, I am much more at ease in my body.
___
So I hopped out of the van, kicked my shoes to the side and let sensation take over.
____
The high mountain scent promised fall. A trampoline of pine needles sprang back at me as I entered what felt like the Narnia of Alice + Wonderland.
______
My mood shifted like a mystical mood ring with every step.
Periods are crazy.
But they are made by nature.
Which is also crazy, and homeopaths say “like cures like”, so I kept walking.
___
Two pines creaked back and forth asking for my regards as a pair of squirrels who, in hindsight probably felt the same as I did, chased each other squawking loudly about Gaia only knows what.
Slowly I drew toward the river, or she drew me.
The water-rounded rocks generously providing me with reflexology.
_____
I crossed the river on a silver, water-smoothed tree that had undoubtably stood taller in its high day.
Now it humbly and with much beauty,helped me cross the river.
I crossed+ sat down on a lichen-draped river rock.
The water ran golden around me.
The smoke from the western fires lending a dreamy quality to every color in the great forest.
I felt sadness over the fires, but realized that was thinking small.
______
“All things that feel unfortunate in the moment of their making, often serve a larger purpose further down the road”. The river saturated my feet with the words and they sank into my skin, running through my blood, delivering the message to my now-calm brain.
___
Nothing in this abundance (nature) is in vain. Nothing at all... And I don’t know your experience outside, but when I let its alchemy soothe me, I can feel it help heal my deepest wounds

The eyes are the gateway to the soul:
Many external judgements are often made based off of appearance, the outside looking in phenomenon as we commonly know.
This is when energy conflicts when "two that don't see eye to eye" and assume that the "temporary" is "forever".
We can only see as deeply into others as we can see into ourselves, with that said when a reader finds a relatable author they often establish a strong connection, a bond that is not broken or bent but is solidified by this wavelength of plutonic energy that carries us along our journey no matter how far forwards we move, inwards is always the farthest journey there is.
Often people seek religion for this inner peace, a sort of sanctum of the soul that otherwise did not exist.
While others stray from religion acknowledging there is more out there to bring that sense of peace, soulfully ofcourse.
It has the uncanny ability of making the seeker subjectively draw in what they desire and search deep inside themselves for what they have been fulfilled with lately, which serves as quite ironic given the back and forth of today's society always wanting to be right rather than to do what's right per se.
Is there a lack of inner peace today, a lack of knowing the depths of one's soul or is it a lack of a candidness to express this without being berated for ones core beliefs, because I do not believe nobody knows, I believe people know more then they let on and this alone is slowing down the progress the world so desperately needs in hopes of accomplishing the goals nobody thought they would ever live to see, while few of us can see it all hidden in the eyes of another.
