One of the biggest expanders of self-acceptance (and straight up POWER) on this planet for me is this woman, @katehorsmanhealth -- the way she holds herself and moves through this world legit reminds every cell of my being of what it means to be freely self-expressed. I know she has worked hard - to the core - to get to where she is, and I think that's what adds to her power -- her humility. Kate, thank you for always getting back up...and standing so boldly in YOU.❤️⁠ Kate said these words to me in a convo and they landed big time. You don't have to prove, explain, or justify your choices to anyone. As long as they feel in alignment with you - in that moment. Oh, and another thing while we're here....you're allowed to change your mind, shift, and evolve. Actually, I hope you do. #beingisbeautiful #yourjourneyhome ⁠ ⁠

*Current Affairs* ⁠ I'll be honest, I am incredibly confused about where to step and what to say. I have a challenging time trusting any voice in power, or the news I read. Because of this and the fact that the lines between news and propaganda are blurry....it's hard to find somewhere to stand. ⁠ We need change, yes. But...I'm not sure what those answers or policies are. ⁠ Clearly there are deep, dark shadows that are rising to the surface in this country. Systemic racism. Institutional oppression. White supremacy. Toxic Nationalism. And it is inviting all of us to look in the mirror, and within. To take ownership, and to step up. ⁠ More than anything though, I hope this invites us all to do the "work" and heal from this wound of separateness, the trauma that exists from living in a consciousness that plots us against others, and that keeps us all disconnected and divided. I am not as educated as many (I realize this is a privilege) on these topics, so if you have any thoughts / resources / accounts you recommend to follow please leave a comment below. I'm still trying to piece it all together....with the heart in mind. Darkness teaches us how to swim....may we swim together. Big love fellow humans.#beingisbeautiful #thejourneyhome ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠

When I read these words from @notesfromyourtherapist today, I felt deeply seen. I believe this "GO GO GO mode" is one of the deepest assaults on the feminine essence within us all. With the advent of chronological time, a calendar system and the "economy" -- we're all slowly becoming machine-like. Another cog in the wheel. For what?? I have no damn clue. ⁠ The reclamation of the feminine - isn't a gender thing. It is a human thing. And the only way we're going forward is by slowing the whole dang thing down. Nurturing ourselves with the gift of stillness, space, and connection. Our wisdom is within -- a power that rises when we are listening and trusting. A coming home to nature, nurture and our true nature. #beingisbeautiful #thejourneyhome

*Stepping into Womanhood* ⁠ For the first time in my life, I actually feel like an adult woman. I'm 30....not 18. And to be honest, I am just now integrating a lot of the concepts I have learned over the last 5 years into a deeper sense of Self. One that is grounded in grace, compassion, power, courage, acceptance and love. ⁠ This journey home is never-ending...and it definitely didn't happen solo. I have a SOLID group of women & men in my life who have held me in my darkest moments and continue to hold me through these initiations. ⁠ Straight up. I love being a woman. Saying that gives me chills...because for the first time I am the power that exists within my cells. I was asked recently what has been the biggest shift in my life since stepping onto a path of sovereignty....⁠ My answer: I know there is a different way of being, seeing, doing, relating and living -- because I've felt it and know it to be true. Hand in hand, we go. #beingisbeautiful #thejourneyhome ⁠ ⁠

The "good girl" strategy. Ohhh, do I know her well. And to be honest, we needed to know her well in order to survive. Being the "good girl" and playing small is a survival strategy. In a world that has grossly displaced the power and wisdom of the feminine, it makes sense that we opted for a more dependent, docile, and good-girl approach to getting our needs met. Sad news? We had to do this at the expense of ourselves. Good news? We're headed home in a deep, integrated, and powerful way. Waking up to the faces of daughterhood - with heavenly Fathers, cultural fathers, blood fathers - catalyzes a healing journey within and of itself. ⁠ We are stepping into a deeper truth that rocks the power dynamic that has existed on this planet for 1000's of years..and it will be a vulnerable, sometimes challenging process for all of us. This will show up in our family systems, relationships, and basically everywhere as we move beyond the passive strategies of people-pleasing toward a more active, centered, and deserving strategy of integrated empowerment. ⁠ It takes courage to step beyond this pattern, and rock the patriarchal boat. But I don't know about you...I'm here for some waves. With deep love in my heart for all humans, always. #beingisbeautiful #thejourneyhome ⁠ ⁠

*Radiance* ⁠ What does it mean to be radiant? For me, radiance stems from a woman who belongs to herself. A woman who trusts herself. A woman who chooses to live on the edge, despite feeling afraid. A woman who owns her emotionality, and stands strong in her backbone. A woman who is connected to her sexuality, and sensuality. A woman who chooses to open in a world that easily hardens. ⁠ I have tasted the nectar of radiance...and let me tell you, it is worth the emotional black holes, hard conversations and growing pains. ⁠ When we commit to taking the journey back home to self. We commit to the bravest path of all. One of self-responsibility. This is where freedom lives. In choosing to show up, lean in, peel back the layers of conditioning and give yourself permission to own what sits sweetly at the center of your own heart. We are all worthy of this nectar - together - we walk. Towards the sun without fear of the shadows. #beingisbeautiful

Words & their respective meanings have drastically shifted for me throughout the last couple of years. Like the word 'freedom' for example used to mean I had free will - meaning I could make choices that we're in alignment with what I wanted (I could move, speak, drive this car, take that flight, have this career, get married, have babies, travel, etc) that were within the law. ⁠ But since 2015 my words and their respective meanings have been shifting. Meaning, there are more layers & depths to words in my operating system now. So let's take the word freedom again. ⁠ Now, it's more internally focused than externally focused. What do I mean by this? I mean - psychological freedom (the ability to think more expansively beyond black/white thinking), emotional freedom (the awareness around my emotional world and the tools to express myself & my emotional needs effectively), and spiritual freedom (the ability to connect to the space within me - where I derive my sense of safety, security, clarity and certainty from instead of depending on something outside of me to make me feel safe/secure). The word freedom to me isn't just the freedom I have to walk around but it's the freedom to choose what I make this world/word/experience mean - because what I make it means determines how I feel and ultimately, what I attract more of into my world. ⁠ That's why for me, it's not about how far I can fly but how deep I can go. How connected am I to me? Because, when you face what's within - the separation begins to blur, and for me, that is when I feel most free. ❤ #beingisbeautiful quote: @andrea.balt

The ego is what allows us to have this human experience. So that we can experience life, grow, heal and evolve individually and as a collective. Of course, over-identifying with this separateness is when things get off course. ⁠ When we haven't tasted reality beyond the fear-based narratives of survival we create feedback loops that keep us separate from the whole. I believe we are all on the journey to go beyond the fabricated self, so that we can touch the ineffable. The Divine. I've personally experienced this feeling of oneness, and it dissolved/rocked my ego. And it healed my heart in ways that are beyond words. ⁠ When we can come back into ourselves knowing the truth of our interconnectedness, we step into a deeper knowing. This doesn't mean we don't challenge the way this reality operates...or bypass the world. It means we stand together, by realizing our togetherness. #beingisbeautiful

I’ve been working with a somatic experiencing therapist for the past couple of months and it’s been an incredibly eye opening experience for me. To track and notice my nervous system in session, and through out my days. It’s bringing me back into my body in a really gentle way. My nervous system is grateful for that. As someone who habituates toward a run or freeze response, (disassociation) understanding and allowing these parts of my internal experience to exist has lifted so much weight off of my shoulders. It’s allowed me to have grace for myself in this growth back into my body. I’m giving my body permission to complete its natural responses...I’m giving my body enough space to be instead of jumping in with my mind to figure it all out. Don’t get me wrong, the mind is always trying to protect — but it sure was liberating to give my body the permission to do what it wants. I will be dropping in and sharing a much more detailed journey around this work soon — stay tuned! Until then...permission to experience it all granted. ❤️ #beingisbeautiful #herjourneyhome

Your truth is what sets you free, my friends. No matter how hard it is...or how scary it feels to express it -- when we disconnect from it, we drop deeper into the shadows of self-doubt. ⁠ If you don't feel safe in expressing your truth, find an objective safe space to hold you -- a therapist, or a trained coach. Giving yourself this space opens up the flood gates to feel and process all of the repressed emotional debris that has disconnected you from your light and vitality. ⁠ Turning inwards takes courage...because often times it requires that we question the external world around us. Clearing the emotional debris of repression opens the doors for true authentic connection. And if you ask me, that is worth everything. #beingisbeautiful

*Turning 30* ⁠ My twenties taught me a lot...as my mentor said, I earned 30. Truth. If you want to hear more about my transition out of my twenties -- I did a podcast with @rawbeautytalks recently where you can dive in with me some more ;] ⁠ I feel incredibly blessed for the humans in my life - my friends and my family who have supported me in getting to this moment. I wanted to share a glimpse into the most magical 30th birthday that @jessmcbeath planned and executed with a team of major babes! ⁠ It was the perfect way to mark this transition, with loved ones, good food, connection and sunshine. Thank you for being my best friends, and biggest teachers. I love you all madly and look forward to what this next decade has in store.

Disney did a number on us with this one. Snow White. Cinderella. You name it, someone else was saving. And gosh, my inner 5 year old is all for putting my savior on a pedestal & being whisked away in a white horse-drawn carriage where we will live happily ever after. However my real life love ( @createthelove) isn’t game for that - and who would be — gah, that pressure is insane. Haha, luckily my inner 4 year old is no longer choosing for me - or the lens in which I’m seeing through to make most of my choices. Why is that?? Well, because it’s my turn to be the protective mother to my own inner child. To be the one who nurtures, soothes, and provides her with compassion and protection. Let me tell though, when life gets rough — and my system goes into complete overdrive — that prince — or “father” figure or hero —- looks pretty damn great to those stressed out and helpless feeling parts. The orphan archetype. Am I right? (And in those moments, it’s ok to ask for support >> but support is different than saving) So, my friends — the moral of this story — that little girl or little boy within you still needs some comfort, love, protection, and safety (hourly, daily, in those moments that trigger your fight/flight/freeze) — and you are the one who can give it. Say whaaaaa. Magical, right? Reparenting our inner child & giving ourselves what we needed in the past, now — sets us free from the fantasy and puts us back into reality. Where we can do something about how we feel. Boundaries. Expressing Needs. Processing & honoring Emotions. Sharing our Truth. How’s that for a love story? Or better yet, a Hero’s (Heroines) Journey. #beingisbeautiful

*Self-Betrayal* ⁠ This is such a tender topic my loves. Being fragmented from our own truth - competence - and worth is painful. And, *all* of us leave parts of ourselves before we can even complete a full sentence. All in the name of survival. Fair enough, we're still here! ⁠ This journey home to your soul's path takes so much courage and honest reflection. To move from surviving (fragmentation) to thriving (alignment) begins with looking in the mirror. With ownership, even when it wasn't your fault - originally. ⁠ In the last couple of weeks I have been coming face to face with some very subtle masks that keep me safe & secure in this patriarchal structure. The places where I silence myself. Where I abandon my needs and truth. ⁠ Just a few weeks ago I was at dinner with a very confident man who unquestionably is an *expert* in his field. At dinner, he said some things that did not align with me....at a core level, and I just went with it. Agreeing. Not wanting to rock the boat. ⁠ Guess what? It's in these micro moments where we lose ourselves too. This conditioning runs so deep we barely know we're doing it. Waking up to the places and people where I still hide out, silence, and fragment from my own truth has been incredibly eye-opening and grief-inducing. My heart, your heart - has so much wisdom. When you trust this and put it first -- with discernment of course *safety always* -- you become the most powerful version your self has yet to know. #herjourneyhome #beingisbeautiful

As many of you know — I’ve taken the last 3 months off to move through what I am now calling a TOTAL recalibration — a process I am still actively engaged in. It’s been messy, beautiful, liberating, terrifying, confusing, frustrating, grief-filled and soooo necessary. I’ve been taking a look at every area of my life and even more importantly - myself. Where am I playing small? Where am I hiding? Where am I living in fear? Where am I neglecting myself? Where am I bypassing truth? How can I step forward out of the shadows? These questions and I are meeting again — but in a much deeper way than before. See, the homecomings never end. The process of individuation continues on. Luckily, I am surrounded by a support team that is multidimensional. Souls who have taken a stand for my greatness and hold me in my messiness. This woman @anahataananda is one of those gems. We recorded a podcast this week on climbing out of co-dependency and the process of individuation — the journey home to our soul’s truth 🎯And it was the reminder I so needed - in flesh, and in podcast form. Can’t wait to share with all of you beauties ❤️ #beingisbeautiful

Staying well hydrated is key for our mental, emotional and physical health. I didn’t always live this truth though… I used to drink coffee, and diet coke exclusively. Oh how things have shifted. #ad On my journey to find more H20 in my life, I needed to find a way to love water. See, I’m one of those people who needs a little somethin’ in my water. My favorite way to jazz up my H20 is with @NaturesWayBrands Chlorofresh, a few mint leaves and some fresh lemon juice. Why this combo?? Chlorophyll helps cleanse and oxygenate our body as an internal deodorant, fresh mint keeps me energized, and lemon helps to detoxify the body.* Oh, and it tastes delightful!

When I first heard this breakdown of guilt, I had a major ah-ha moment. And for the first time, a way out. Guilt splits us - internally. It is the playing out of an inner child-parent dynamic. Where the inner-parent punishes the inner-child for doing something ‘bad’. But, oddly enough — this punishment almost cleans the slate. Now that we’ve beat ourselves up again internally, we can do it again. We continue to repeat this cycle because this cycle is familiar. I didn’t say fun, or fulfilling — just familiar. In a way, it keeps our parents close. Eek. So what do you say? Time for a step forward. Into healthy shame - our moral conscious — where we take ownership, say sorry, and mature beyond the inner parent-child dynamic. Yeah, this takes guts & courage. But let me tell you, it’s so much better than living split. Talk about frustration. For me, guilt has allowed me to play it safe. Fused with the little girl, I was scared to move forward and out of the past. To truly open my heart and be seen. And fair enough, it’s a heroic journey my friends. Because when you step up and take a stand for your actions — you are more open. And when we are open, we feel more. The whole spectrum. Yeah, this hurts at times — but at least we are alive. And cultivating intimacy with all that we are. Guilt, anger, shame and all. #beingisbeautiful

We sabotage ourselves/relationships to protect ourselves from potential pain or historical pain. The way through this pattern is to get curious about the underlying fear/wounds that led to the emotional armor in the first place. ⁠ In our 6 week How to Create the Love Course, Mark and I dive deep into the patterns of self-sabotage in relationship -- and how our relational upper limits keep us stuck in the same loops and patterns.

*Choosing Love After Divorce* When I first opened the relationship door after my divorce I was terrified. Yes, I had done a lot of "self-work" to heal, grieve, and process the divorce -- but still, it's a totally different level of vulnerability when you actually choose love from a semi-conscious space. ⁠ When I first started dating Mark, my avoidant attachment alarms were constantly going off. And get this, I didn't even know what attachment styles were! I would shut down, push away, and withdraw when the intimacy bubbled up. I feared that I would hurt him (and that I would hurt) soooo it would be better to just keep the distance. But I wanted to go deeper...sooo I buckled up and got curious about my attachment wounds and patterns. ⁠ And...to be honest, I AM still moving through deeper layers of my attachment wounds as I move into unknown territory. I still push away. I still project. We're always growing, right? When you run into blocks -- get curious. Sit with your shadow. Acknowledge the fear. ⁠ The best way forward? Acknowledge your attachment wounds. Get curious about the attachment triggers in your relationships.

I always say, "If we have the freedom to choose how we relate to this world, why not choose a story that feels good?" Clearly this takes work -- reprogramming and all the like. ⁠ I don't only believe in a world that is divinely orchestrated to support me in bringing my gifts to life -- but I know it to be true because I've experienced it. ⁠ What if you were fully supported? How would this shift the way you show up? For me...it's releasing the need to do, and softening into the magic of stillness. #beingisbeautiful

It hurts because it matters. And because it moves us — if we let it. There are moments in our lives that will feel chaotic. Where we will feel like we’re hitting a wall - a wall of resistance - that makes us feel like everything we’ve been working towards is no longer a yes. Even though we know there is still a deeper yes in there, our mind isn’t buying it. Why? Because sometimes the mind is saying STOP because it doesn’t want to repeat a story. Our walls go up. We take refuge in our intellect - and all the stories that keep us scared + stagnant. As a way to protect us from feeling the pain, grieving the past. Friends, if you want a different story moving forward you must grieve the one that brought you here — with compassion + grace. • upgrade those what-if statements in your head from the negative to the positive. What if this leads me to the ideal job? Partner? Etc. • You know, life is like that — we get opportunities in the form of chaos to clear the old density + feel it out & grieve to make room for something that is aligned with your core values & what you desire to create in this lifetime. So, next time you find yourself in chaos - tune in, and ask yourself, “what am I afraid of right now?” “Where in my past have I felt like this?” And “what do I need in this moment to feel safe?” “What do I need to do/say to feel fully self expressed?” — sometimes that is a girlfriend to clear your emotional world with, and other times that is having a courageous conversation, asking for help, and owning your truth. Because, guess what?!? This chaos is part of the process that is life. Lean into it, it might just be an invitation to the deepest love + biggest liberation yet. There’s nothing you can’t handle - trust that. 😍 #beingisbeautiful

Boundaries are a big deal. And that’s because an embodied sense of safety happens when we have our own heart’s best interest. I remember a dynamic in a previous relationship where my partner didn’t have the best of boundaries with other women at work, etc. I tried to play the “cool” girl and let it slide.....but if I’m being 100% honest, there’s nothing cool about other women thinking there is any space for inappropriate messages, etc. Lesson: you better boundary up, especially if your partner doesn’t have them by saying that’s a no-go for you. Mark and I talk about this a lot, and it feels nice to know that our safety is both of our number 1 intentions. Because of this, it flows — and our nervous systems can chill. This is the basis of emotional intimacy and connection. Remember, there’s nothing sexy about being a door mat. #beingisbeautiful

Don't persecute the part of you that woke you up. ⁠(And don't listen to the people who do that sh*t either) 👌⁠ Self-forgiveness and self-acceptance is bold work. It invites us to feel into the shame, the sadness, and the anger. It invites us to move beyond where we've never been...with more awareness than we've ever had. ⁠(with more potential to get hurt...) ⁠ It asks us to keep moving forward in the face of discomfort. It asks us to trust what's rumbling in the deep. It asks us to trust a story that is beyond this plane. It asks us to give gratitude for the parts of you that didn't have any other option but the option they took. When we reach this space of understanding and integration, we experience a release. A deeper peace. One might say, an experience of divine grace. ⁠ Don't let healthy shame turn into toxic shame, loves -- because when we do this we miss the whole damn point. Death & rebirth. #beingisbeautiful #herjourneyhome ⁠ ⁠

What you don't own, owns you. When we don't address or look at our own shadows -- the parts of us that we disown, repress, hide from -- they grow stronger. What we resist, persists...right? ⁠ You don't have to run my friends. Facing it -- takes immense courage, and I acknowledge you for that. What you will likely find is this -- it's never only about the surface content. It is usually something much deeper. Surrender into the unknown, and let what needs to rise, rise. When you face it, you find the certainty you're looking for when you try and control it and repress it. #beingisbeautiful ⁠#herjourneyhome ⁠

I’ll never forget when one of my mentors asked me, “What’s really underneath that constant smile?” I busted into tears...it was the first time someone saw beyond the mask I use to protect myself from feeling...or dealing with the pain I don’t want to face. My suppression tool of choice....just keep it cool + up top. Might I add, it doesn’t feel good. Or go anywhere — but emotional numbness & denial. (And a downstream of health issues) See, our voice is a muscle. And many of us have been conditioned not to use it, or trust it. And if you ask me, it’s one of the most important muscles we need to keep a relationship movin’ forward. With ourselves & with others. I don’t know about you — but I didn’t have a communication framework available when I first entered into any relationship. And I sure as heck didn’t have a clue or understanding about my own emotional needs & feelings. And that was scary. If we don’t have a clear connection to how we’re feeling + what we need it’s a pretty challenging task to get those needs met. Enter survival strategies + manipulation fear-based tactics. If we want high quality connections we have to share high quality information....which means we have to be UBER clear about what’s important to us, what’s a whole-hearted yes, and what’s a no.🌻 #beingisbeautiful

What if I told you that there was something underneath that frustration/resentment/sadness and that by identifying it for yourself >> you could really really help yourself out? What is this magical thing I speak of? Emotional needs — and they matter. Big time. The best way to discover if your emotional needs are being met is to become aware of how you are feeling. Our needs range - from the need to feel safe, to feel in control, to feel valued, to feel capable, etc. When your needs are being met it makes it easier to flourish in life...Aka >> doing an emotional needs audit = a really darn good idea. Sooo. Next time you’re feeling little to no “feel good factor” >> I invite you to ask yourself, are my needs being met? What do I need right now in order to feel better? Here are a few biggies: 1. Security - we need a safe place & environment that increases expansion instead of contraction (due to undue fear). What do you need in order to feel safe? 2. Attention - We need to feel that those closest to us care about what we have to say, etc. prioritize quality time with your partner/friends. Significance FTW. This goes both ways. 3. Emotional connection - love, intimacy, friendship and connection. How can I feel more connected? What are some questions I can ask to deepen our connection? 4. Connection. We are social beings, our brains are social organs — and we need a connection to something greater than ourselves. A greater community. 5. Certainty. We all know that we feel better when peoples words & actions are aligned. Boundaries, yo! 6. Growth & uncertainty. Growth feels good. And there’s no better container for growth than our relationships. So instead of dropping into old patterns, ask a new question. Seek to understand. Yourself. Your partner. Your friends. Good news, it begins with you taking the step to identify what your emotional needs are. How can you meet these needs? How can you communicate these needs in a way that feels safe? A deeper look - within - always helps in closing the gaps we have with others. Plus, it is your birthright to feel emotionally nourished. Remember that. #beingisbeautiful

Gut health plays a key role in our mental, emotional and physical well-being. #ad Over the years I’ve been on quite the journey when it comes to healing my gut. Since being diagnosed with SIBO last year, I’ve learned a few things about this powerful second brain that sits in the center of my body. The biggest shift in my gut health journey was when I started to support my digestion with digestive enzymes before every meal. These enzymes are a game changer! Especially when I am traveling and need a little balance in my life, @NaturesWayBrands Digestion with Enzymes keeps my tummy happy so I can enjoy the places, people, and delicious eats along the way.

This quote pretty much sums up the human experience. We all have our strategies, defenses, hide outs, and blind spots. And guess what? That's not only okay, it's welcome here. So many of us shame the thoughts we don't want to think or the feelings we don't want to feel -- pushing them even deeper until they are out of sight. But, we all know -- eventually -- what you don't own will own you. I love what Liz Gilbert shared the other day on the @goop podcast -- truth is always the last one standing in the room, so we might as well start there. *hello #truth*  I've been looking at some MAJOR patterns in my life -- like down to the core of how I relate to others and the narratives I hold about myself. This type of work is necessary if we want to see beyond the past, and create something that feels alive. Whatever the stories are, or the feelings you're feeling -- let them be. What if they were normal? welcomed? accepted? How would that change things for you? #beingisbeautiful

I turn 30 in a couple of weeks... and lately I have been reflecting on my twenties. My twenties were filled with invitations...invitations to heal, go deeper, reconnect to myself, reclaim my voice, stand on my own two feet, explore my shadow, and own my side of the street. I'll be honest, if my twenties had a title it would be: GROWING UP, and moving through the resistance step by step.  haha, growing up out of the old patterns of dependency, people-pleasing, perfectionism, self-betrayal (self-protection), and unworthiness has been one helluva adventure. I'm human, and although I trust my soul's path -- surrendering is effin' hard. Especially when the programming of my nervous system would rather me play small, hide out, and stay in the land of the familiar. Good-ish news? My body won't let me do that...  Recently, my osteopath said to me, "you're lucky your body communicates to you loudly." To which I said, "Some days." As I enter a new decade I am reminded of the words from my 25 y/o self, "lean in, you're here to move with life, not against it." Question: What did you learn in your transition from your twenties to your 30's?? Leave a comment below and let your sista know. #beingisbeautiful

Dr. Gabor Mate is one of my favorite teachers on this planet. When he said this in his interview with @trewrussellbrand recently I had to write it down....because it’s so true. When we don’t feel wanted, we make ourselves feel needed. How does this show up? In so many ways from trying to be a perfectionist to taking on the role of care-taker. When we peel back the layers & discover what’s driving the decision we finally can stop hustling. What is my intention here? Why am I doing what I do? What am I trying to gain? What do I need in order to feel accepted? How does it feel in my body when I do it? If I believed I was enough would I do X? Coming back home to our worthiness is trusting that we are enough - as we are - and that we don’t need to morph into someone else in order to feel wanted /valued or worthy. Ps. It’s a process my friends. #beingisbeautiful

Great friends = medicine for the soul. For the last 10 days I’ve given myself major permission to rest and do nothing. (And watch Downton Abbey) I don’t think I’ve done this in 5 years. 🤯 Now, I’m feeling rested and ready to rock. Sooo grateful I got to spend a few of these days connecting with the best hearts. @createthelove @katehorsmannutrition @dan0miller + MJ ❤️ #beingisbeautiful

Whew. @eboneedavis dropping some truth left and right. We must look at our mammalian make-up when we talk about consciously choosing to be alone + holding out + having standards. We're a social species. Fact. We depend on connection in order to THRIVE. Fact. So when we're upleveling in our lives...it can feel terrifying. I've felt this before, and to be honest -- what helped me through it was a deep sense of trust. A deeper surrender to a bigger story, a magical unfolding. If only, I would lean in and trust. Message of the day: trust the magic in the solitude. #beingisbeautiful

Happy Father’s Day, Papa! I feel so incredibly blessed to have a father like you, @robmcbeath ❤️ you’re the greatest gift a daughter could ever ask for, and I admire you deeply for being the man that you are. We won the birth lottery with you!! I love you ❤️❤️❤️ #beingisbeautiful

Reconnecting to the emotion of anger has single handedly transformed my life, and my relationship. It is only when we have access to this emotion that we can access our boundaries. ⠀ Boundaries delineate where you end and someone else begins. This isn't a straight line my friends...because let's be honest human relationships aren't that linear. ⠀ When we don't have healthy boundaries (not your fault, but now your responsibility), we have a challenging time finding our own sense of self. Reconnecting to this self can feel terrifying, liberating, and exciting. If you are looking to slowly step out of the "nice" girl role - I recommend looking at the relationship you have to your own anger and boundaries. ⠀ It's a choice that has the potential to rock the boat. But at least the boat is heading toward an ocean of truth. Lean in. #beingisbeautiful ⠀ *Free Webinar - How to Become a Relationship Badass is open for enrollment. We'll be looking at your relationship patterns!! Link in bio* ⠀ ⠀

"The truth is, in order to heal we need to tell our stories and have them witnessed...The story itself becomes a vessel that holds us up, that sustains, that allows us to order our jumbled experiences into meaning." - Sue Monk Kidd⠀ Being held and witnessed in our stories is the greatest salve to our hearts. Lean in, share your story, you don't have to carry it on your own. #beingisbeautiful

"There is no place so awake and alive as the edge of becoming. But more than that, birthing the kind of woman who can authentically say, 'My soul is my own,' and then embody it in her life, her spirituality, and her community is worth the risk and hardship." - Sue Monk Kidd ⠀ Ahh, the edge of becoming. I've been reminded from a few of my soul doulas recently of this truth: birth is messy, terrifying, uncertain, and beautiful. Let it be all of it. #beingisbeautiful

A broken heart does a number on us. Emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually. When I was going through my divorce, I remember thinking holy sh*t will this pain ever end? Will I ever be able to find someone else? Will I ever be able to open my heart again? Trust me at times, especially in the rawness that is a tender heart — the shame, fear, guilt, grief, anger, and regret closed the door to my heart. In those moments, I remember thinking, “I’m totally chill being alone for the rest of my life.” Aka I’m totally chill not opening myself to vulnerability, intimacy and the world that is romantic relationships. Breakups are messy. They are triggering AF. They are magnifying glasses & mirrors >> and sometimes what they bring into our awareness hurts. But the beautiful thing is >> and what I’ve learned is >> we always have a choice. A choice to turn the pain into something bigger than ourselves. A choice to re-open the doors to your resilient, beautiful, and expanding heart >> a choice to trust that it can be different than it has been. The brave ones are those who despite everything they have been through still choose to stay open, accept and grow through the storms that cross their paths. Easy? Heckkkk no. But I will say, it’s easier when you surrender to life instead of fighting what was & what may never be. | Who knew my deepest pain would lead me through the door to my greatest joy. Myself. Real Connection.🚪 #beingisbeautiful

Security. A secure base. A foundation. An emotional safe haven. The freedom to be REAL. Seen. Heard. Supported. Understood. When I was growing up I remember hearing over and over, "don't ever depend on anyone." Fear. Mistrust. Seperation. This mantra became deeply engrained in my mental operating system. Self-reliance was KING. I thought, if I don't need anyone then I will be safe, secure...what they didn't say is that you'll also be lonely, disconnected and exhausted. Not to mention the lack of vulnerability needed to play it safe in this mental groove. Having emotional needs - security, emotional support, safety - does not make you weak, it makes you human. We're all sensitive beings, some just hide / repress it better. Being able to rely on yourself is crucial yeah, but having a community of people - or just 1 person who backs you is like being aboard the express train towards connection, freedom, intimacy and bliss. The feelings of loneliness & separation blanket our planet today - keeping our heads down & hearts closed - this not what we came here to do. We do need each other. We thrive on connection. We heal because of it. We come alive in it. Be this anchor for someone. A thread of life. A lifeline to Love. It's the messy that teaches us what we need most. The vulnerable moments shared that thread us back together. The hug that lifts us back up. The smile that reminds us of the innocence in you - me - we. So as we continue to rise & stand together, grounded in the truth of our interconnectedness - I say, be bold - we've got you. ❤ #beingisbeautiful

I was talking to @spiritedseeker on a weekend walk in the trees about taking breaks, getting caught up in the “doing,” grieving (death and rebirth), letting the wild woman out...and so much more. There’s a lot of stuff coming up for me right now...some say it’s my good ol’ Saturn Return. And tbh, whatever it is I know I’m going through another initiation...of some sorts. How I am navigating it? - grieving - releasing - sisterhood - journaling - permission slips daily to rest and let my body do what it needs - leaning in - going deeper into my why - clearing my calendar - nature - rest - and heaps of trust. #beingisbeautiful

I love these words, "There is no change that does not bring with it a feeling of challenge and loss." When people ask me if Mark and I ever have conflict in our partnership or if we ever get triggered by each other my answer is, "Of course!!" The thing is we do something with the triggers. We drop the armor - eventually. We let each other in. We share the parts of us that have been hurt...so that we can love these parts back into the safety of the present. This can be terrifying, because it's laying down the sword and dropping the armor. And, it's the only way forward. #beingisbeauitful

As of lately, I’ve been needing to calm the jets. What this has entailed: - permission to rest - permission to let go - deleting IG off of my phone - dropping the narrative, “I need to post...create...do” - sleeping when my body needs more sleep - saying no - clearing my calendar - taking baths - feeling for feelings sake - somatic experiencing therapy - less expectation, more acceptance I feel like I’m going through an initiation of sorts...an opening and a deeper connection to my why. Death & rebirth. When we are in these transitions the invitation for me is to always lean in, grieve, and make space. Within myself and around myself. What supports you in these transitions?! ✨☀️ #beingisbeautiful photo by the best: @jaxonhowell @railcarcreative

We can go so far on this path of love when we cultivate spaces of psychological / emotional safety. This is why I believe so strongly in sisterhood, mentorship, coaching, therapy, shamanism....all of it. No matter which path you're on -- letting your truth speak opens doors to whole new horizons of empowerment, healing, confidence, and clarity. ⠀ We've been told to keep it all in...in order to stay safe and secure in the way it is. But is a faulty foundation built on unspoken words really that safe? I realize that this journey will look completely different for all of us -- and that is ok too. No matter where you're at, I trust that you will know when to lean in, and touch the heart of your truth. No matter how small the whisper, or how loud the roar -- your truth matters. Today, tomorrow, forever. #beingisbeautiful
