Happy Monday loves! I’m on such a high after weekend 6 of YTT! I can’t even believe we only have 1 weekend left! I haven’t shared a whole lot about my YTT experience yet but I do have to say that I’m so unbelievably grateful for my group of fellow trainees. There’s 38 of us and that’s a pretty big number for a YTT. But since night 1 we’ve all been so connected and it’s been absolutely incredible growing and learning with my people💗💗
Today we have forearm stand or headstand for #bloomforspring which is fitting because we worked on inversions in YTT this weekend🤗 .
Sorry , I am "NOT SORRY" 🤷
Some things require apologies for sure. But saying or being sorry for every single thing is like being sorry for our existence.
I am guilty of it🙋
I am one of those people who feel to deserve something I should do something . I secretly feel unworthy when I get something for free or easily. Instead of enjoying something, I start feeling guilty 😂.
This is such a negative & destructive mindset. It creates a constant feeling of unworthiness in the person. I know this kind of mentality is deep rooted & needs time & conscious efforts to undo it. After all it takes years of conditioning to build such mindset. Shifting my thoughts from 'guilty' to 'grateful' has made a huge difference in this context.
I want to consciously & mindfully free myself from some of the things that subconsciously make me feel guilty sometimes . I am giving myself the freedom to enjoy & live without guilt.
So here's my list of the things that I am not sorry for 👇
.. and the list goes on.
We all are worth all the these things & more. ❤️
What are the things you are not sorry for?
Tell me in the comments 🤗😇

Monday’s like this 🖤 A cup of coffee, yoga, my thoughts, my mind, time for myself with my fav @esmiskinminerals face mask! I am so thankful at the moment! Thankful ..
- for the possibility to work from wherever I want
- to be my own boss
- to have riches, not in money, but in people I’m blessed with ❤️
- for the opportunity to travel and get to know so many people and cultures
- to have someone to make me smile through my hardest days, @matthewplant_
- to live in a nation that allows freedom
- that I can follow my dreams
- to have humor to allow me to laugh and tears that allow me to mourn
- to be healthy, although not perfectly, it could be much worse
But, most importantly, I’m thankful for everything! Good, bad, scary, beautiful, harsh, wonderful! I am thankful that I get to wake up each day and make it whatever I want it to be, and I am thankful that every year my list continues to grow! Though my daily struggles may just seem like stressors, they are actually reasons to be grateful! Whether I look at them as lessons or as reasons to appreciate the next day, I am more than grateful to endured! What are you grateful for? 😊

Last week @leeann_k_photography captured me through her lense and I am simply blown away 😭 I love when I get to experience people in their true element. Calling, passion, divine purpose, whatever you like to call it, LeeAnn is living hers. Thank you for using your passion to help me fuel mine❤️
Another beautiful contrast pic. I found it today in the afternoon here in this lovely place. Our life is so colorful, we only have to see the beauty inside and outside.
By the ruling body of Mercury,
Retrograding into shadow,
Through the jungle of fury,
Anticipating the outro.
Finding "the way" to direct,
Climbing my way through 108.
Rythmic cycles of the mantra,
Om mani padme hum,
And the natural creation of Mala,
I am loved, I am loving, I am love.
Through my matter
Earth and Sun distances;
In the clear quartz
Chakras and sacred places.
Cutting through the darkness
And out the negativity,
Always the sense of beginning,
Completion, and continuing.
My journey thus far, finding my power stone, and creating it into a mala necklace.
Many thanks to the Kieran-Sistrunk Gallery and providing this place of tranquility.

Mindfulness is the juice ⠀
Last March, I felt in my soul something needed to change. My lifestyle and the way I thought were unhealthy & unstable. ⠀
I started this journey of really wanting to meditate and become a calmer version of me. See, I was uptight and controlling. EVERYTHING bothered me and my patience was thin. ⠀
I had such bad anxiety I would just cry because I absolutely hated the feeling. And the anxiety would last days causing more agitation. ⠀
If you think wow that’s awful. It was. But when I began this quest I kept practicing even when there were no results.⠀
Then one day things just all the sudden things fell together. It clicked. I felt a sense of the burden had lifted. ⠀
When I get anxiety now it isn’t as intense. The duration is literally a 1/10 of what it use to be. And I’m able to be a better human as the result of my mindfulness practice. ⠀
Being mindful to the way I speak to myself and observing the emotions that came with it. Allowing myself to love myself. ⠀
I could literally go on for days on how mindfulness has changed my life & perspective. ⠀
I am so PUMPED to be able to teach others how to become more mindful so they too can feel the same life changing experiences. ⠀

Y O U have the ability to achieve all of your wild hopes and dreams . All it takes is a little effort, an abundance of self love and every day persistence ✨but no one is more capable than *you* all my love xo #greenglowinggoddess

You are excellent!
You deserve organic raw vegan handmade chocolate.
Stuffing walnuts and cacao beans in the soft dried dates. So fun so beautiful. I love to creat something by having some happy thoughts✨

I love bringing some of my DoTERRA essential oils around with me daily.
Ive been experimenting with them for awhile now and there is literally one for everything! 🌱
I had my Lavender essential oil with me on vacation! Which I used for my mosquito bites. I also used it every night for a good night's sleep
Mix 2 to 3 drops of essential oil in 2 to 3 drops of liquid carrier oil per ounce of water. Shake before use. Spray onto bug bites to experience relief. I added a few drops to my moisture and I found it worked great. -
Dark periods in life make us resilient. And it is through those experiences that you allow to transform yourself. It is what often is referred to as the ‘heroes’ journey’: going through a though period that challenges your abilities as a human that usually is experienced as ‘dark’ to work your way through it to the other side. Wether you make it through is totally your own responsibility. But if you are able to come out of this darkness you will gain something invaluable. Something money can’t buy. The opposite of what any golden spoon will offer you. As a personal rite of passage you are now ready for what’s next. Resilient to the darkness you have become a better version of yourself, developing character along the way. A golden spoon will do the opposite.

Hoje durante a minha prática da manhã levei um tombo. Um tombo daqueles: que faz um barulho estrondoso e acorda quem tá dormindo na casa.
Eu tava no final da prática já, no penúltimo asana: sirsana. Pra mim tem sido o asana mais difícil nos últimos meses. Minhas conquistas com ele tem sido vagarosas: costumo usar a parede em toda prática e quando sinto que aquele é o dia eu saio da parede e experimento o início com o apoio do ar e do chão.
Hoje decidi experimentar chegar nele sem a parede.
Hoje a prática estava sendo intensa: um eterno diálogo com a mente pra que ela permanecesse presente na respiração e respiração fluida pra acessar espaços pouco disponíveis (talvez um dia conturbado pra experimentar sair do apoio, mas o que me custaria tentar?)
Então, eu fui.
Quando minhas pernas chegaram lá pro alto a ansiedade era tanta que minha mente voou pra longe, meu sacro quis descer ao chão e eu, estilo jaca madura, fiz "paft" no chão: acordei minha irmã que dormia ao lado.
No primeiro momento paralisei. Fiquei bem quieta só respirando e observando coluna, cabeça e órgãos internos. Um tempo para saber se tudo estava bem. Sim, tudo certo. Respirando fundo comecei a movimentar suavemente: rolar a cabeça de um lado pro outro, elevar os quadris, abraçar os joelhos. Fiz diversas mobilizações para a coluna: de joelhos, quatro apoios, em pé. Queria ter certeza que tudo estava bem. Andei pelo quarto. Fui experimentando.
Fiz apanasana dinâmico, umas 10 vezes, e depois deitei num bom savasana. Fiquei. Meu coração e mente só sabiam e queriam agradecer: as mãos Divinas que me apararam e me ajudaram a cair bem, ao meu corpo que há 3 anos investe na prática e se preparou para receber o chão. A partir disso fui destrinchando os agredecimentos: ao meu pescoço que cedeu espaço a cabeça para afrouxar na direção do peito, aos meus joelhos que flexionaram e auxiliaram o pouso no chão, aos meus músculos abdominais e para-vertebrais que estabilizaram minha coluna e permitiram uma chegada seca no chão: sem partes pontiagudas que pudessem causar danos e sérias lesões.
Fiquei um tempo em savasana e depois despertei.
