//protection // worth asking : WHO are you protecting when you hide your wisdom? //What are you hiding from, within yourself? // Who are you protecting outside of you in the process, and why? // And, what has the potential to be exposed or revealed when you drop the hiding and protecting? xx HA HQ

Yes it’s true, silence is sometimes golden. From the space between words and thoughts comes inspiration. After a well needed Social Media hiatus, I will now present... The Shantih Ma Podcast. Coming soon so stay tuned!
Stepping out of my comfort zone. My mam told me a story once of a little girl who was too afraid to do anything she knew she wouldn’t be good at or win. She wouldn’t dare do anything that would potentially put her in a position to be laughed or ridiculed. That little girl was me. To look at me, you would doubt that I was in fact drowning in fear, lacking in confidence, I was not a secure person. This lack of confidence in myself, my gifts, my personality, and the knowing of who I am at my core, really did prevent me from living a life that we are all capable of living. One where we’re not afraid to go after our goals, one where we will not settle for less than what we deserve, one where we have peace of mind because we know that we are okay just the way we are & more often than not, when people do unkind things, or are selfish or whatever it maybe, is because they too, have a part of them that’s feeling afraid. I started CrossFit a few weeks ago. I was excited and a bit nervous, why? Because I knew I wouldn’t be able to lift as heavy as the others & I didn’t want to look stupid in front of people. Breaking that down, what was actually happening is a combination of pride and self-esteem feeling threatened. How did I get through this? When once I understand that it was actually pride (what others think of me) & what I think about myself, I decided to consciously stop thinking about that, I brought my mind into alignment and focused on doing the best I could. What did I find? My fears where unfounded, nothing happened, I wasn’t ridiculed and everyone was supportive. Becoming aware of what you are afraid of, you can do something about it, you have the choice then. So often we are driven by our unconscious fears, which are slowly beating us into submission. No more ❌ . . . . . . . . . . . #crossfit#confidence#confident#fear#spiritualawakening#healer#healing#spirituality#energyhealer#soul#power#innerpeace#happiness#peace#selflove#mindset
⭕️ I went to a Women’s Circle yesterday as a PARTICIPANT. Although I already run circles of my own, continuing to be in such a space to explore my inner world through someone else’s guidance keeps me on my path. .. After all, it was initially this experience that moved me to become a facilitator so I can offer more of these sacred spaces. .. Yesterday’s experience reminded me of the power of bringing women together. All that collective wisdom and energy from our wombs brings forward the underlying mysteries of the thread of life. .. And its so needed. Because we are the mothers and nurturers. Our hearts move mountains in those we touch. We have a greater capacity to feel and in so doing, shape our own lives and the lives of those we love. .. But its also what makes it so hard sometimes to be a woman. Because we feel so much, we also feel the pain so much. .. And when we’re not taught by our maternal line how to handle such pain, we look for the next best thing to handle it... and too often, we turn to our preferred addiction... whether it be food, alcohol, sex, being busy, being perfect, helping others instead of helping ourselves... all to numb the pain. .. So in this modern day when that wisdom that used to be passed down through our maternal line is no longer available, may we seek sacred spaces such as Women’s Circles to return to our centre, to return HOME to the truth of ourselves. #womenscircle#healing#energyhealer#wisdom
