✨🌕✨ 12•12 This final full moon is the biggest push to truly prepare us to let go and release what we have been holding on to this year. The bright light of the moon shines down on us, cleansing, and illuminating those areas that the sun couldn’t reach. Pulling them out so we can recognize and acknowledge the dark within us. We all have it. It is what makes us human. Balanced. But it is important to stay balanced and not allow the dark to over power. . . Even through all of my successes this year, I face myself with doubt. I often wonder if I’m good enough, if I am worthy... I know the true answer- I am more than enough and beyond worthy. But it’s a lifelong process for me to release that doubt. I recognize, I acknowledge, and I release bits of it daily. . . I am enough I am worthy . . What are you releasing this full moon? . .

Each time I bleed I post this and will continue to until the shame around menstruation is gone. Menstruation is a beautiful thing and a woman's womb is the source of creation and human life, yet we are shamed each month while we bleed. During our bleed we need rest and to retreat from the world, and if we honor this we are often made wrong. We live in a man's world. We're taught we have to go go go, do do do, and rise to the top. Men and women are different. Both beautiful and wonderful but different. Women's bodies are not meant to go all of the time. Our menstrual cycles are a reminder to slow the fuck down and rest! Even if it's an hour before you have to head to work, honoring your bleed and womb, is a great act of self love.
EINE NEUE PODCASTFOLGE IST ONLINE! Stellt euch vor ihr seid super erfolgreich. Stellt euch vor, ihr habt immer Ziele vor Augen gehabt und unablässig gearbeitet. Stellt euch vor, ihr wärt ganz oben in einem großen Konzern. Und dann bricht alles zusammen. Wie geht man damit um, wenn auf einmal das, was man über Jahre getan hat, sich nicht mehr richtig anfühlt? Und was passiert, wenn man dann doch den Mut findet, zuzulassen? Mit @sabine.enders von @onedaybaby.de spreche ich genau darüber. Sabine hat jahrelang im Top-Management gearbeitet und war auf einmal auf sich selbst zurückgeworfen und auf die Frage: Wie will ich überhaupt leben? Anstatt sofort Antworten zu haben, hatte sie den Mut zuzulassen und das Leben sich entwickeln zu lassen. Wie sich das angefühlt hat, wie es ist, wenn man sich quasi immer wieder häutet und was passiert, wenn man drauf vertraut, dass sich das Leben schon entwickelt wird – darüber sprechen wir im aktuellen Podcast (Link in Bio). Love, Sandra P.S.: Da bald Weihnachten ist: Unter allen, die den Podcast oder ein Yogaeasy Video von mir kommentieren und mir ein Screenshot zusenden, verlose ich drei wunderschöne Lapislazuli Armbänder von @studio_naiona , die Nora extra dafür angefertigt hat. 💙 #podcast

I actually do think there is something like a maternal instinct that we all have, but I’m talking more like women’s intuition and also something that comes with the bond we have with our children, something that isn’t easy to describe in words (of course fathers have a special bond too), but a mother’s is just different, maybe it’s different mostly on an emotional level because of how we are wired. What I find refreshing about this is that I think we have confused maternal instinct as something that we have or don’t and determines if we feel like a good mom or not, kind of like when we might think we don’t have the “mom gene” that everyone else seems to have when we struggle as mothers. What do you all think? (rp @themotherhoodcenter, @huffpost)
growing up with five sisters, I’ve always been surrounded by strong, uplifting energy. when I became involved with social media, I was blessed to meet other strong, like-minded women who shared my passions and slowly, but surely became my sisters as well. 💕 together, we knew we had something special to offer the world. we decided to start @girlgangxsocialclub to bring our sisterhood to you all, and open it up to all genders, fitness levels, backgrounds, and abilities. we’ve combined our talent, skill, education, and experience to bring you guys a kickass guide we hope you enjoy!🥰🙌🏽 I’m so excited to share with you all what we’ve been working on. 💕 we are just getting started. 🤩 #ggxsc#girlgangsocialclub#sisterhood#fitness#health#nutrition#lifestyle#training
There is a lot of conversation around sisterhood. A needed conversation. But more than that, a needed action, that each of us, as we step into our womanhood, should take. We talk about supporting each other, we say we got each others back, but do we really? What does it take for us to renegotiate that commitment of sisterhood? When do we fall back into the patterns and habits of the fearful little girl? It is exactly in those moments of distress, dis-ease and discomfort in which we need to grow closer together. We need to do the work to overcome our own stories and fears to allow true relationships and sisterhood to flourish. Show up for each other! On the mat, off the mat! • Much Love for my#warriorwomentribe @budokonuniversity @budokonacademy BJJ sister @mvduque & Photography Sister @emaritraffie • Tag your #warriorwomen omen sisters!

This week's story is shared by Brea (@mamaneedstovent) - I suffered severe anxiety throughout my entire pregnancy, in silence. I spent my pregnancy telling myself, if we just make it to the birth, everything will be okay. I still can’t believe how oblivious I was to the possibility of depression and continued anxiety. ___________ That first night home was a huge wake-up call. I spent the first few weeks crying all day, every day. I was breastfeeding in the beginning and only made it three weeks because I felt like I was drowning. My whole life was nursing, passing him off to sleep, nursing, repeat repeat repeat. So, I quit. I still struggle with hating myself for stopping.I was put on medication after my supportive husband and sister pointed out that maybe these feelings weren’t normal. This sadness. This anxiety. This defeat. ___________ Two weeks later I was a new woman. I finally felt that my son had a mom—a mom he deserved. I knew within the first week of my son’s life that I never wanted to do this again. I never wanted to suffer through severe anxiety for a whole pregnancy. I never wanted another emergency C-section that blew up my whole dream of labor and delivery. I never wanted to fail at breastfeeding, and hate myself all over again. I never wanted to have to start all over with postpartum depression. ___________ At first I was afraid to tell my husband and to my surprise, my husband felt the same way. He said he hated seeing me struggle and was grateful to have our healthy, happy, perfect boy. He said another baby wouldn’t make our lives complete. I was SO relieved. My son is almost one and we just started telling family members we're not having any more. It took us this long to share, because we knew the responses we’d receive. “You’re in your 20s. You’ll change your mind.” “You have to give him a sibling. That would be so cruel to him.” “Just wait until he asks you for a sibling. Then what?” “That’s so selfish.”
👉𝑰𝒔 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒘𝒐𝒓𝒌𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒎𝒐𝒎 𝒂 𝒈𝒐𝒐𝒅 𝒎𝒐𝒎?👈Can you believe that’s a frequent question on @google?! ⠀ “I felt a lot of shame when I went back to work after Calvin was four months. It was shocking to some that I would leave a baby with a stranger and for others they comforted me with words that filled my soul. How could I leave him at such a young age ? How was I gonna balance working and being a new mom ? I’m not sure I knew the answer but what I did know was that I didn’t really have choice. I couldn’t afford to stay home and emotionally I’m not sure I could handle it. For the last two years I’ve been a working mom. I’ve cried and sacrificed a lot of time away from Calvin. Some days I’ve gotten home and I can barely stay awake to give him my attention and other days I’m wondering whether being in school and working is worth my time. Or even worse, that he would resent me for not being around. ⠀ But here’s what I’ve personally learned about being a working mom, I’m a better mom to Calvin because of it. He inspires me to pursue the things I love. He is my reason for seeking to better myself and ultimately living in my purpose. Who knows maybe in a few years I’ll desire to stay home and I’ll gladly do it. But for now I’m embracing who I am as a mom. I get the best of both worlds, working a job I love and being a mother.

womxn are capable of activating each other’s fullest magic. I believe womxn can’t have truly empowered healthy, long-lasting & passionate romantic relationships unless they cultivate trust, pleasure & power inside themselves & with each other. so much energy is drained from partnership when a womxn actively fears other womxn as constant threats, when she is disconnected from her own turn on & confidence, when she distrusts her worth, lives with crippling insecurities, or endlessly compares & judges.. when we do the work to trust, connect & heal with womxn directly we discover not only what it means to be radically trusting & empowered in partnership but we also receive a vivid mirror for our greatest gifts: what makes us exquisitely unique & what strengths we share with the collective of womxn. when we heal together we have the tough conversations, we break down the bull sh*t that’s kept us from each other, & we also dance stripped of defenses to ecstatically celebrate the nature of Womxn. sisterhood has not only been a lost art for generations - it is a core & essential aspect of being a womxn that sets the living foundation for conscious partnership. what holds you back from intimate connection with other womxn? what insecurities & fears do you need to hold & get to know within yourself in order to show up for more? how can you rebuild your relationship with your OWN sexuality, power, genius & radiance in such a way that you are empowered WITH, rather than against, others? ——— written by me, DM me if you’re interested in 1-on-1 transformational coaching where we heal the trauma & conditioning that lead to chronic disconnection from your power + co-activate your greatest pleasure & radiance TOGETHER ♥️
