  • You must learn how to balance

the energy of your mind; 
for the same rain that grows

flowers also creates thorns.

  • Venus enters Pisces today. This is great news. Venus, the planet of relationships and money, is exalted in Pisces. That means, Venus shows some of its best qualities in this sign. Relationships should begin to improve, and people should become more forgiving and compassionate than normal. You also should become more understanding and loving toward yourself. I believe we are all becoming more sensitive to our own needs and the needs of others at this time because there is a major change and TURNING POINT in all of our lives RIGHT AROUND the corner. Venus has entered Pisces to help make this transition for all of us into a new and different life story much easier. Use the mantra pictured to channel the spirit of Venus in Pisces! And be thankful for Venus' stay in this sign. When Venus leaves Pisces and enters Aries about a month from now, where it will be in detriment and will conjunct Chiron around the time of the SECOND full moon in Libra, things won't be nearly as pretty. ✨ To learn more about how you will transform in a major way in this next month, and how your relationships will HAVE TO ADJUST with you as a result, sign up for my April 2019 webinar happening TOMORROW NIGHT, where I will talk in detail about the major shifts Venus is making this next month.

  • Do not ignore yourself in that way. Do not be like those people who don’t see you, hear you, or acknowledge you; do not abandon yourself in that way. Open yourself up to see and accept your entire being.  See the parts of yourself that need to be seen and are most in need of loving attention. Feel your hurt - it is your heart’s way of communicating with you about your values and what’s important to you.  Do not make your pain unimportant, allow yourself to feel it and then drop the storyline you are telling yourself about it and instead meet it with kindness and compassion for yourself. 💚

  • i’m posting a little late this tuesday, but i want you to know how loved you are.
no matter where this week has gone
or how you feel
you are loved, you are heard, and i am here for you ❤️
i feel like through supporting others we can sometimes focus on ourselves
focus on how WE feel while helping them versus how they feel
sometimes, you don’t need the right words to say
you just need the right pair of ears to listen
coming to a conversation with open ears, an open mind, and an open heart will set you up with a trust like no other
think about that person that through your hardest time, never left your side
just knowing that they were there made all the difference
be like them, ever present and standing by for whatever may come your way
if you ever need to vent about a friend, a family member, a personal situation, work...
I GOT YOU BOO! ❤️
sometimes with the right person listening, you’ll learn things from yourself that you never would have imagined you were capable of
(btw, you are totally capable)
thank you for always being there and listening to me ❤️

  • If you want a different result, then you must do something differently. ✨ Obvious advice, yet so difficult to follow sometimes! Why? Because different paths are new and awkward and the way may be so new to your experience there isn't even a dirt trail for you to follow through the brush because this is completely uncharted territory. That doesn't mean you are lost, however. That doesn't mean you're going the "wrong" way. It just means, you've never been down this way before. You just know where those other paths lead and are ready to try something new. Or at least you felt so sure of trying something new before you found yourself surrounded by your anxiety telling you that you are lost and you should turn back to the familiar well beaten path.✨ But the familiar is exactly what you sought out to escape. Don't forget it. Don't lose sight of why you're trying something new. Don't lose sight of the fact there is so much growth and life to be found in expanding, even if it does feel awkward at first. ✨ I remind you as I remind myself and my inner skeptic who is thinking this is too weird and also simultaneously too good to be true, so we should just turn back. It is not time to turn back. At least not yet. There's so much more to find out and explore. Open hearted and at home in myself. I acknowledge my skepticism as a side effect of my past experience and as a means of keeping me safe. Thank you, skepticism, you can take it easy now. I want to see where this goes and have faith it will be good. ✨

  • As much as I love exploring other places, the most mysterious place of I’ve ever tried to figure out is myself. It’s so crazy how one day I’ll wake up ready to conquer the world and fight anyone standing in my way, and the next I’m wondering if joining a monastery and taking an oath of silence might be my key to happiness. It’s confusing to feel so. many. feelings. sometimes. Do you feel me?!?
.
.
.
The thing I keep coming back to is, NOW. This moment, this now, is all I have. I can’t predict the future. I cannot escape the past. Yes, I like to plan and prepare and strategize, but none of that $hit matters if I’m not present in the process. .
.
.
Traveling reminds me of this. That’s why I’m so obsessed with it.  I’m extra aware and alert when I’m exploring somewhere new. The sights, the sounds, the smells... I want to bring that clarity into everyday life. ✨✨✨Comment below if you feel me! Let me know what your vacation self wants to bring back to your everyday life self.✨✨✨

  • “I encourage myself to actively work towards goals and self-growth.” 🌻
The key word in this intention is “encourage”. Let’s not push, force, or “tough- love” ourselves into being better or into “doing” more. Start with a 10 minute meditation before you roll out of bed or a bible study on your phone instead of checking Instagram. Set the alarm 10 minutes earlier so you can enjoy your coffee instead of gulp. Maybe get crazy and get up an hour early before the chaos of the day starts. Do some yoga, read, meditate, shower, sip, breathe, thank, watch the sunrise. Whatever you do, just do it with intention. You don’t have to do it all, just start small. A little goes a long way. Be still. Own your day with a small intentional nice gesture for you each morning and watch the changes begin to unravel. My goals aren’t life changing alterations to my world, they are moment to moment intentions to appreciate the present task with gratitude. The more we can do this throughout the day, the more positive changes will begin naturally. Self-growth is the smallest mustard seed of faith, of positivity, of trusting yourself, of shifting, of praying, of silence, of just being. 🌻#newspringnewstart 🌻
Thank you to everyone who joined us in our first challenge as hosts! We have had so much fun planning, bonding, and then getting to watch you all bloom! It was truly a blessing and a joy. Another thank you to our amazing sponsors for being so generous, kind, and enthusiastic for our challenge! Thank you, thank you, thank you. 🙏🏻

  • Several years ago I was told that I couldn’t lift more than 5 lbs and I wasn’t to get my heart rate over 140... you see I had a heart defect and I was going to need open heart surgery in order to fix the problem.  For over 8 years I was unable to exercise.  I quickly realized what a privilege it is to be able to workout and how I had taken it for granted for many years. 
My heart is repaired now and I have been given the Okay to workout again!  May I never take exercise for granted again!  #survivor #zipperclub #heartstrong #openheart #workout #exerciseisablessing

  • The breaking 
leads to opening

The opening 
allows expansion

The expansion 
creates more space

The space 
invites growth in

Don’t try to hide your broken pieces because they are what make you who you are and once you hit the growth stage you’ll realize how necessary all the different pieces are to create the beautiful puzzle that is you. 💕 📸: @catiemacken

  • “Why are these two things related? How is it that sitting on the ground “doing nothing” softens your heart? Because when you give up your story about yourself and about life, you are left with things as they are. When you don’t take refuge in stories, you forgo the protection of conventional wisdom, unexamined projections, biases of all kinds. You are basically raw and there is no where to hide” - From Start Here Now by Susan Piver

  • ARE YOU GRASPING FOR LOVE?

Are you in a vicious cycle of grasping for love, receiving glimpses of love, turning those glimpses or crumbs into gold, losing love, grasping for love, receiving a little - just enough to keep the cycle going, losing love again etc. It’s an addictive cycle! I’ve been there and many of my clients have been there. 
To anyone who resonates with this cycle:

Reclaim your power and stop denying the truth. If you have to keep fighting for someone's love, and that love is inconsistent or intermittent, it is not real love.  It is a power game. 
Surrender to the truth of your situation. Do you feel safe? Do you feel truly loved and as though you matter? Can you be yourself? Are your basic needs met? Or, is only part of you welcome in the relationship? Do your boundaries get transgressed and your voice suppressed? Then look to see what needs to be done based on the facts.  The moment you do this and start taking action towards loving YOU instead of grasping for love, you get your power back. What would someone who loves themselves do in your situation? Stay for what can feel like emotional abuse? Or cut ties and reclaim your power? 
People who don't know how to love you will consciously or unconsciously want you to know that they have the power.  People who know how to love you want you to know how powerful YOU ARE.

Are you being supported in your power? Or is your power being diminished? Stop being a victim.  Reclaim your life. You matter. And you will survive.  Being alone is better than staying in a relationship that does not support your joy and freedom. It will be a new beginning, which is always scarey, but always worth it.

There are some people who would actually prefer you to not be in your power.  You know who they are.  They are the people who benefit from keeping you small; who benefit from getting their needs met yet who meet little to none of your needs. Who are more interested in what they can prove than how they can love. Whose word you cannot rely on and who are always chopping and changing their viewpoint according to what suits at the time and according to what will validate their competitive little ego. 
LET THEM GO!

  • "I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart I usually make the right decision. I've learned that even when I have pains I don't have to be one. I've learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone, people love a warm hug or even just a friendly pat on the back. I've learned that I still have a lot to learn. I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel". -Maya Angelou
