This is the most “spiritual” thing I say to myself these days. The most empowered and compassionate. The truest. Even when it doesn’t feel true: I’m doing my best.
For deeper wellness
At a speaking gig, I asked a conference room of women, “Who resents having to be so strong all the time?” Almost all the hands went up. Resentment is a low vibration energy drain… How do we rise?
When we save the recapitulation we create less negative karma, hurt fewer feelings (including our own) and have buckets more energy for where we’re heading.
Stay away from the complaint. Move toward the expansion.
Some spiritual teachers come in the form of relationships. Others find us in a mosh pit at a Sinead O’Connor concert in our twenties (where I got the courage to walk from my 9-5 job.) Others are classical Zen masters and awakened humans…
The key characteristic of the Age of Aquarius is UNITY CONSCIOUSNESS. This is the era of going from “me” to “we” thinking. “My will be done” to “Thy (divine) will be done.” We’re evolving out of grind and exploitation, to receptivity and inclusion. Wellness.
Every single relationship that you have—everything you eat, the car you drive… is because of Mother Earth. Have friends, a job, shoes on your feet? It’s all because of MOTHER EARTH.
Here’s the most powerful life changing advice I’ve ever been given, by the wisest person I’ve ever known. You will go so much farther when you follow this simple piece of advice: take a break.
Conceptually, we know that “giving more Love” is a more harmonious way to live. But since we are actually made of Love––it’s our true nature–– how about this approach: What if we promised ourselves to never withhold love?
Choose your healing methodologies… like you Love yourself.
Simplicity as a sacred practice. I’m all for it these days. My luxuries and practicalities are chosen with deference to Nature and integrity of the maker.
Explanations of astral body, mental body, emotional body, and… What hangs out in your auric field anyway?
I’ve been focusing on my relationship with the 5 elements, moving into my capacity to offer healing as the Earth heals me. A mutually supportive relationship. It’s been really nourishing to approach each element as a relationship that I have something to bring to––and what I can bring is reverence.
I’ve heard it from so many women this past year: can’t sleep through the night. Waking up at weird hours. Anxiety that’s never been there is showing up… Interrupted sleep can be created by excess cortisol, which then impacts our insulin levels and our physical energy. It’s a stress loop.
If you were to look at yourself with a loving gaze, what would shift?
What old, limiting stories would start to dissolve? What tightness would loosen? What would be forgiven, relaxed, diminished, celebrated, more cherished?
That loving gaze is Reverence.
The practice of simplifying has consumed me in the best way possible. I’ve simplified every area of my life. It’s become a magnetic pull in my cells.
Your Heart is GENIUS. But she’s hard to hear when we’re shouting out goals, looping in comparison thinking, striving to be more spiritual… and… and… and… Slow down, love—your Wisdom has a message for you.
I think our Souls know how to do real intimacy. No veils, no games, all courage. But we have to slowwww down to meet that level of truth. And sometimes, slowing down can bring fairly fast results. It’s a divine irony.
Imagine waking up tomorrow, not needing to prove your value to anyone. Not your boss, your partner, your mom, or the landlord of the building you want to live in… how might your aspirations and energy management change?
I’ve been betrayed — severely. Thank God. Betrayal is such a defining experience — it lays your heart bare, and that’s a bloody, good thing. Bloody good.
Being betrayed by another person is often (not always,) a reflection of how you were betraying yourself. It’s a lie looking back at you.
Choose your medicine, press play, and I’ll keep the pace for you. These audiograms can be your guided meditation on a walk, some mantra vibe on repeat in the background, or a zen ritual while you shut down your day. For when it’s hard to get going, and even harder to stop… press play on Sacred Word Sets.
Why is forgiveness so hard? One reason: we aren’t taught to be forgiving.
Taking planetary alignments into consideration, bringing love into politics, and nature consciousness into commerce is not spiritual bypassing. That’s spiritual practice.
We talk WORTH—“worthiness” is working overtime to cover up a big, egoic lie. We’ll shine a bright light on it, and steady ourselves in Divine Wholeness. This is a BIG, DEEP, GORGEOUS TOPIC. LIFE STUFF.
The Lie of Inadequacy says, “You were born defective, not good enough, flawed.” Ha ha! Not even close.
Inadequacy is an ego sham—an exhausting lie. If we buy it, we can get stuck in the worthy/unworthiness loop.
Transmutation isn’t a slow burn; it’s a wildfire. Our inner fires are being reflected on the outer landscape.
We fight for causes, for relationships, for our children, for our co-workers… but it can be terrifying to fight for ourselves. This is where sisterhood is particularly powerful. When our girlfriends see us over-extending, and they look us in the eye and say, “Stop. You don’t need to do this.”
Our topic is DISCERNMENT. As in: how to hone your BS-detector and recognize the complex, beautiful TRUTH—and stand for it.
The Full-Hearteds will be called crazy, idealistic, rebellious, too soft, too New Age, irrational, impractical, so angry, disloyal, righteous, moralistic, idealistic, unrealistic, unreasonable… and (gasp!)… utopian. It won’t be the first time, it will not be the last. That’s more than alright. This moment was made for the Full-Hearteds to let love rule. We see the beautiful ideal and we know that we’re all a part of its unfolding.
Resilience isn’t about toughening up—it’s about adaptation. And adaptation is about inclusiveness. And inclusiveness is the natural state of the heart.
