We’re coming out of the void soon even if it doesn’t feel like it and you’re still annoyed about how much uncertainty lingers - your mind might be playing tricks to make things happen so it seems more comfortable if being busy and activated feels more familiar to you as it does to most overly aroused humans. My soul sis @thehighlysensitivesuperwoman shared a potent reminder that for most of us especially in the West we are conditioned to exist in a hyper aroused sense of fight or flight. Most nervous systems aren’t naturally relaxed and have a hard time finding calm and peace even when we might be in spaces conducive to deep rest. How can we actually be present to enjoy the nothingness and quiet? Ascending and evolving into 5D and higher frequency states of being requires a masterful attunement - which takes practice and consistency therein - to deep rest, presence, and infinite being. Ascension is inviting us into masterful receptivity to fully be utilized as the channels and transmitters we are designed to be. Many are being taken thru the fire again to remember how to surrender - which isn’t such a mental process at all but instead a deep somatic release and allowing as you finally feel deep rest and emptiness wash over you without any efforting. So as you go thru the fire and indulge in pretending to have 3D struggles and worries and obligations that don’t actually feel good and certainly aren’t your truth - remind yourself you can course correct and repattern a new experience instantaneously. Feel what wants to be acknowledged, see it, meet it, feel it all the way - and then decide to return to Center by asking yourself what you truly desire? What would feel good, now? How can you support yourself in receiving and being precisely that? It’s in your power to program your state of being whenever you choose to remember you’re creating your experience anyway; it’s just so much more fun (and effective) to do so consciously.

Pretty badass, if you ask me! ;) Beautiful Thrivers, inspire others with your authenticity; your courageous willingness to be seen and heard, pure and true. When we are brave enough to take off our masks with one another, that’s when the magic of soul connecting happens. We create a genuine, safe and loving space of acceptance, compassion and understanding. I know we’ve all been hurt, to one extent or another, and instinctively want to shield ourselves from experiencing pain, but with no risk there is also no reward. And believe it or not, after you practice it a while, that contagious freedom you exude, grows your self-confidence/acceptance/love to where it is itself your new kind of “shield”, of sorts. This shield isn’t a barrier created from fear, but rather an inner energetic strength which is anchored in love. When that is strong and healthy, much of what you have felt you’ve needed to protect yourself from, no longer scares you, or effects you the same way. Go on and be your badass selves, Rebels!

Most of us grew up with unconscious parents, where we were not seen for who it is we truly are. Instead of finding ourselves, we were raised to represent the best version of our parents, we were pushed to meet their unfulfilled expectations and to fill their unfulfilled fantasies and dreams. When we enter our twenties, thirties, forties, and so on, we are lost because we never had the chance to search for our authentic self. This is why it is essential to break this cycle when it comes to parenting our children. Conscious parenting is about seeing the child's most real self. The first and most significant step is for us, the parent, to find and honor our own authentic voice. When we do so, we accept and cherish our children's authentic voice. Let's work together to help our children preserve their authentic selves. It is their birthright, and it is ours as well. Leave a ❤️ if you are ready to break the cycle!
Is it important for you to be liked by most people in your life? Does facing confrontation make you feel extremely anxious? Do you often find yourself doing too much for other people and then feeling resentful? Do you put others’ needs in front of yours? Do you feel guilty when you say “no” to requests of others? Do you feel uncomfortable if someone is angry with you? . . If you can relate to any of the above questions, it’s possible that you have people-pleasing tendencies. Most likely learned early in your childhood. While you may think you are just being nice (and there’s nothing wrong with being nice, the world needs more nice people!), there’s a difference between niceness and people-pleasing. . . Others may manipulate and take advantage of your willingness to please them. You may not even notice that this is happening. Additionally, you may avoid expressing negative feelings to others in order to avoid being criticized in return. In other words, abandoning and neglecting your own needs and well-being. . . People-pleasing is driven by emotional fears. Fears of abandonment and being alone (“they will leave me if I express anything negative.”), fears of rejection (“they won’t like me and I won’t think I am nice if I say what I don’t like.”), etc. . . You can be nice and still set boundaries and say “no.” You can be nice and respectful and be assertive. You can express negative feelings to someone respectively and they will still stay. And you can still have amazing people in your life even if some reject you. . . While being nice is important, let’s not forget about being real. If you cannot express negative feelings, your relationships will lose their authenticity. Being real is more valuable than forcing yourself to be nice all the time.💚
Let that sink in 💕 . I wrote a long message about this last night, posted it and deleted it shortly thereafter because I realized I was writing just to myself to receive my own medicine and that what I shared isn’t for anyone else to receive. How often do we do this? . I was writing about codependency and healing on the path to embodying sovereignty. . I then got to witness myself playing into a common example of exactly that: the way we are interacting with social media and the entire value system structured therein is rooted in numerous codependent dynamics. . I caught myself sharing out of a sense of obligation rather than from truly inspired desire and joy. . I caught myself sharing with an expectation for what I share to wake people up and have them change because of what I reflect, writing also with an underlying frustration and impatience in feeling how so many seemingly simple concepts (my understanding of which I can easily take for granted) still aren’t accessible by the masses, many of whom are still asleep. . Those aren’t my people though. My people are awake and masters in various domains of energy, intuition, embodiment and leadership. . But in the past it’s felt more comfortable to speak from the pedestal of being more awake and masterful as opposed to speaking to my peers and to myself in many regards - writing from pure presence and vulnerable reflection as opposed to teaching or preaching or fixing or saving. . I’m reconditioning my energy system to be more finely attuned to genuine desire and intuitive impulse when it comes to my service. . In the past some of my service has been motivated by servitude or a feeling of obligation - If I don’t do it who will? If I don’t say it who will? I have to. I should. These words are red flags for being in servitude which really feels like slavery. . I want to share for the joy and delight of it; exploring what intellectually spiritually energetically intuitively turns me on because I get
I struggled a lot with self-acceptance because I thought it meant complacency, laziness and lack of ambition. And for a self-proclaimed over achiever, I wasn't having any of that. I didn't know that I could be kind to myself and sit with myself, even while I aspired for more. I didn't know that it was okay to be angry and sad and for me to feel my all feelings, as long as I didn't let my feelings control me. It took a lot of un-learning old belief systems and patterns for me to finally let go of self-judgement and to realise what acceptance really was.

You know that little voice that makes you question yourself? Doubt yourself? Feel insecure? Distracts you with the WHAT instead of letting you focus on your WHY? I’m going to call her my #trashgremlin. We all have one. She’s a little sneaky B that likes to slip in those not-so-helpful thoughts when you least expect them. - The Trash Gremlin has a tendency of trapping you in a cycle of fear/doubt by asking all those fear-based questions. It’s a natural reaction to go back to what’s comfortable and what’s safe. However, you can’t grow in safe and in comfort zones. - Today, she told me I had too much to do and I wouldn’t finish in time or pull it off. She told me no one cares about what I had to say. And she also told me the risk was too great. That it won’t work. - This is how I KNOW I’m on the right track because I am scared! I’m excited for how I’m going to pivot my business in 2020 and I’m going to lean in and listen to what my intuition is telling me. But as my good friend @shelseasanchez told me, tell my Trash Gremlin, “Thank you for your thoughts and for trying to keep me safe, but that’s not me.” 👋🏼 - So for all friends and anyone feeling low, or doubting yourself, or hesitating on taking a chance, or just going through some shizz. Tell your #trashgremlin to get back in her cage and free yourself. You are not your negative thoughts.
"Seeing you speak yesterday absolutely moved me. Yes…. I cried. We all cried. The way you conveyed your story and reflected on your turning point with your ED, your realization of how loved you are, is something the whole world needs to hear. You truly are changing the world as we know it, and I am so grateful to be a part of it. I love you so much dude." @macmurph
I’ve been hiding but I never wanted you or anyone else or even aspects of myself to know or see what’s beneath the surface so now I feel found out. It’s humiliating at times feeling this revealed and seen. I feel shame at being caught like I’ve been doing something bad or wrong - criticizing, self-analyzing, judging and beating myself up for not being right, not being “there” yet, messing up my whole dream vision, disappointing everyone, not doing it perfectly, taking it out on others, not taking full responsibility, not embodying who I say I am or who you expect me to be, but most of all not doing any of this right. As if there is a right way or a perfect way or a deadline on when we’re “supposed to” arrive as a fully ascended humanity in Heaven on Earth. The truth is in all the inner reflection I’ve been doing all month digging into this deep set layer of unconsciousness and wounding, it’s still hard to see where the perfectionism and judgement and abusive berating stems from. This voice hasn’t reared it’s head in a long time; it used to be most loud when I was doing bad things like blacking out, shoplifting, destroying property, getting in fights, risking my life, going intentionally into life threatening situations, selling my body...the inner critic drill sergeant abuser was there trying to keep everything together but in this really dictatorial stern way when what I probably needed more in those times was loving soft compassion and kindness. We have so many inner dynamics to navigate - so many aspects of ourselves beyond the child or inner loving parents. I’ve felt schizophrenic the last week navigating new dimensions of my inner being that I haven’t given much attention to until now, being invited to stretch into new territory of self-responsibility and unconditional self love. Like so many of us right now I’m actually learning again what that truly means and how to practice it maybe for the first time: unconditionally. Can
I find a lot of people who are introverts or feel really far away from their worth and authenticity often hide behind the concept of saying “no” until it’s a “hell yes.” They find every excuse in the world to say “that’s not a hell yes yet,” when what’s actually happening is they’re terrified to put themselves out there and be seen, or of failing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So, start saying “yes” to things that scare you, but also light you up or provide healing. I know, SCARY. But by leaning into the fear, you will develop your trust muscle so much more quickly. Always keep in mind actionable steps like these to pair WITH your reprogramming & expanding!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This type of fear is also a great trigger to keep in mind as we work though the DRE Challenge together this month!

Another thing about Desire... . A true desire will lead you on a journey of authentic living (including figuring out what that means to you). . Desire is a treasure map guiding you back to the source of your joy (hint- within where it’s always been and always will be). . And because your desire leads right to the source of your Self, it’s likely that you will encounter some resistance on the way. . The resistance is something like a flat-tire on your way home- a delay, another moment to question if this is really what you want to be doing anyway, a seemingly inconvenient obstacle, that asks of you: How badly do you want this? So you can trust, that if you are in touch with your Desire, you will probably get to meet the life-long entourage of resistance. . What now? . Well, you could throw in the towel. You could say, I don’t really want it anyway. It’s too hard. I don’t know how. . Which is either a) true -and congratulations! you have just freed yourself up to go for what you really want or b) Untrue, and now it’s time to get honest with yourself. . Really honest. . How badly do you want it? . Do you want it more than you want to hold on to those limiting thoughts? . Because by the very nature of Desire, it will lead you on a path that requires your presence and rewards with growth and aliveness. . Desire takes some daring. And it is so worth it. And you are so worthy of your Desire 💫💜 . . 📸@ryelkestano . . #desire#desiremap#dareyourdesire#staywild#radicalhonesty#authenticity#authenticrelating#setyourselffree#wildwoman#roamfree#embodiment#naturalhigh

Happy Tuesday & hello December! As I’ve grown to fully understand myself, I know that short cutting the mental connection is just not an option for me. I’m an intellectual at heart, so I thrive when my mind is stroked and provoked 😏 Give me new insight, show me your way of thinking and impress me with the things that keep you sharp. Mentally intrigue me to keep my attention 💭 #stimulatemymind#deepconversations#intelligence#sapiosexual#ifyouknowyouknow
