For many people, apprehension manifests itself in the physical self as a potent feeling of heaviness or nausea situated in the depths of the lower abdomen. And it is there, at the seat of the second or sacral chakra, that we must lovingly and deliberately confront the anxiety. By rooting down into the deepest physical reaches of ourselves, we can cleanse ourselves of unease and replenish the space it has left behind with tranquil awareness. Much of what we encounter in our daily lives has the potential to awaken feelings of nervousness within us or make us question whether we are truly in control of our lives. When you establish a den of peace within your core, you empower yourself to act rather than react in distressing situations. Your balanced second chakra helps you respond productively to the turmoil around you while your inwardly directed attention steadies you.

This, my friends, is Danburite flecked with Pyrite. 💕✨ It is pretty much one of my most favorite crystal marriages, ever. I hadn’t even seen this wondrous material until recently (thanks to @haus_of_ferrets) - and it took me a few days to pick my jaw up off the floor. 🤤 I wasn’t sure if I’d find more! Until recently - when I stumbled upon these gems 💎 (imagine my DELIGHT! 🤗)...
• #Danburite is a HIGH-VIBIN’ Crystal.. it connects us to our highest spirit guides, and invokes angelic protection and presence in our lives. It’s heavy-duty — but gentle. These specimens are of the pinkish-hued variety (it can be either silvery white or slightly rosy) making it also a supreme #HeartChakra stone. 💓
The presence of #Pyrite is special because it brings an element of #grounding . With all of those soaring energies and vibrations, it’s crucial to remain centered, grounded into the Earth. •
I have several larger specimens available as is, and several smaller pieces that will become truly unique jewelry.
I’m so exciteddddddd!!! 🙌🏻🔮💓🔮🙌🏻

Working on slowing down and putting into perspective of what’s important. These slow movements were exactly what I needed after not making time for my mat all week. First week back to school for my little girl was crazy. Trying to readjust to school schedule is rough. Especially getting everyone up at 6AM to be out by 7:15 to not hit traffic to her school which is literally only a 5 minute drive otherwise 😂 -
I like to use my essential oils throughout my day. I rubbed some lavender into my palms this morning for my anxiety. This method works best for myself when fighting the funk. The aromatic molecules will absorb into your bloodstream from your nasal cavity to the limbic system. This activates the amygdala which then sedate and relax your sympathetic and parasympathetic system. . .

I had the blessing of celebrating my 30th birthday this week exploring these incredible redwood forests thanks to my loving husband @coxtrey 😘
Many of these massive trees had survived through flood and fire and even had scars to prove it. But they still stood strong.
Grounded. Unwavering. Powerful. Resilient.
They took up space unapologetically. 🌲
Are you grounding yourself now so when your floods and fires come you will stand strong?
You might still get some scars, but you are resilient. You just need to believe it. ✨
“The fertile and stable Earth we know as our mother not only gives us the food we eat - the Earth is our support on which we stand and lay ourselves to rest; our womb and our tomb. Being earthy or grounded is having roots in a solid base.”
- an excerpt from Staying Healthy with the Seasons, Elson M Haas
It’sssss Virgo Season.
We are moving into late summer, getting ourselves organized, making preparations, grounding, and starting to move the focus inward. Sometimes all it takes is acknowledging that we feel unbalanced to plant those feet and find our footing again. From there we have the freedom to really move, to grow, to evolve.
Mi orquídea... primera vez que esta variedad florece en casa. La convivencia con los seres vegetales a mí me resulta terapéutico, me reconectan y me generan muchas sensaciones lindas... son de mi mejor compañía en el silencio, entre otras cosas. Y todo el tiempo me enseñan su capacidad de adaptación, su resiliencia. Y las orquídeas no tienen su hábitat en esta zona. Y también por eso la gente cree que son complicadas o difíciles. Sin embargo, si las dejamos que se adapten y con los cuidados mínimos que requiere cualquier ser, entonces, en algún momento... ellas florecen. .

Life is starting to feel like a fairy tale as I pick wild blackberries from my backyard 😍 🙏🏽 Berry picking is an unmatchable grounding technique. Plucking berries from a bush, concentrating on selecting only the ripe ones and not getting pricked, forces you to be present. It’s a sacred state of being that both connects us to our ancestors and brings us into unity with the singing birds and rustling leaves of the here and now.
Anyone else LOVE picking fruit?!🤗
I duno what it is about it but it’s brings a sense of kindness and generosity into my realm. The earth is such a great provider🥰

Last night, I attended @thewomenswakeupclub workshop about cosmic connection and archetypal astrology led by the beautiful astrologer, @wildwitchofthewest . I have been exhausted this past week from back to school chaos and honestly, I felt like skipping the event. But I knew I needed to go. And guess what? I felt so energized and nourished afterwards from the knowledge and the shift that took place amongst a group of evolving women. (As always!)
I’ve loved astrology for as long as I can remember but this talk took it to a whole nother (autocorrected to ‘mother’ first..how fitting) level! We learned about our personal relationships with planets as well as the significance of specific asteroids and how men tend to move through life as their sun sign and women through their moon sign! One aspect that I took away from this talk was that the collective energy isn’t always felt by everyone. For example, what is currently happening on the planet may create much grief and strife for you if you have sun or moon signs in Capricorn, Cancer, Aries and/or Libra 🙋🏽♀️ I’ve been overcome by the news of devastation this week and truly felt so helpless. But today I came back to the realization that we can do better and be better just by raising our vibrations for this planet Earth (read three posts ago!) Last night, Rebecca asked ‘what will you tell the next generations when they ask what you did when the Earth was burning?’ Sit on that question for a bit. Marinate in it. Are you living your most aligned life? We are in this massive shift of self awareness and reflection....So, what are you doing? 🌎🤔food for thought on this Friday! I’d love to hear your small acts of kindness and compassion for the planet • #gaia#motherearth#women#collective#conservation#earth#motherearth#astrology#astrologer#alignment#universe#galaxies#rippleeffect#empath#grounding#signs#synchronicity#philanthropy#consciousness#shift#energy#savetheamazon#indigenous#tribes#virgoseason
I've come to love this self care ritual so much, I had to work hard to make it a part of my self care routine, making time for me was always last on my list after looking after the children or doing the washing or cooking dinner. I have overcome some limiting beliefs and made this an important part of my day.
What exactly is aromatic dressing you ask?...
Aromatic dressing is a daily ritual of putting essential oils onto your body. Getting dressed in beautiful healthy aromas. After I get out of the shower I put some fractionated coconut oil in the palm of my hand, add a couple of drops of essential oil and then start at my right foot to rub the oil into the sole of my foot and up my leg. I then top up the oils and do my left foot, then my stomach and back and finish with the last lot of oils on my neck and down my arms.
I pick the oil to add to the FCO by thinking about how I’m feeling or what I need for the day. It can range from Balance- the Grounding Blend, Clary Calm- Women's Monthly Blend, Wild Orange for some delicious citrus or Ginger- something spicy. Whatever is calling to me. 😜
I have spent a lot of time on very sacred land this summer. I was in the Mt Shasta area week before last and in July, I was up on the Klamath River. The forests are all connected. The waters and the spirits are all connected. I learned so many lessons that I am still processing and integrating. Lessons that will be a big part of my journey ahead. I share the tip of the iceberg in this week’s YouTube video. Link in Bio. ✨
We are Awareness and reverence with every breath, every action, and every step. Being the Being. Aloha Friday Everyone. ✨
Much needed nature therapy. I spent an hour in Central Park with my thoughts (& the plants I just picked up at @urbangardencenter). Thankful to see so many #bees & #MonarchButterflies in NYC. Hope everyone is having a wonderful day!
