Aww. The Journey: “the act of traveling from one place to another.” How many of you have been traveling to the various emotional places within yourself during this epic full moon, eclipse, new moon journey over the past month!? I am SO amazed at the capacity we all have to go through so many things and feelings and experiences in this one lifetime. I’ve been really aware of my own life’s journey these past few days and am having lots of intentional time alone to truly see myself and all the “traveling” I’ve done in the past, present and where I want to go in my future. Right now Ap is away with our kids in Iceland 🇮🇸 and I cancelled a trip to Sun Valley this week with a dear friend because I knew I needed to journey inward. I’m taking all the time I need right now to feel things FULLY, to go slow and kind with myself and to focus on my individual, unique and precious human journey. Would love to ask that you do the same with yourself in your own beautiful way 🙏. As part of this incredible journey, I am so grateful to call @rising_springs (my fave morning and evening💧) a friend and partner. The integrity they have to source this incredible water that has been on a journey for 16,000 years is so inspiring and offers me a daily reminder of how deep, powerful, precious and healing any journey on this earth can be 🌎 sending you love and transformation from here 🙏🙏🙏 #risingspringspartner #ad #eclipse #transformation #journey #newmoon #healing #water

Yes, lots and lots of feels right now 👏and the question becomes 👆. Best advice, get OUT of other people’s lives and instagram stories and get INTO your life and your stories (aka get OFF of your phone and get into this current moment of growth 🤗). Like, what is shifting for you right now?! Even if you take five minutes to honor this big transition; solar eclipse, new moon, new month, new everything. Feel it. Observe yourself. Allow. Where do you want to stop following along and start leading something new? What needs to heal for good now so you can grow? Start by speaking the absolute most true things to yourself right now (maybe even just write some things down) so you can feel FREE inside and then you can create new choices and see the choices you actually DO have to grow and blossom now. Episode 5 of Magik Vibes Podcast is up today and there’s some magik in the meditation to support you and your free 😽💫💫💫 ps new rule: I set a timer for 5 minutes and told myself if it takes longer than that to post something on this platform then it’s not going to get posted anymore 👋 that made me feel total freedommmmmmm. Try it!?

Pure JOY post #mbgrevitalize ❤️🙏🙌 I am so filled with gratitude and connection right now. Just got home and took a minute to reflect on this past weekend because some big shifts came up, and I wanted to share in case they resonate for you somehow...For the longest time, I was so scared of sharing myself and my truth. For years I’ve felt imposter syndrome. Like who am I to be teaching these other incredible humans? Am I really worthy of being here with all these other incredible leaders? Those voices slowly became more and more quiet through the years as I just kept showing up, connecting with others and allowing myself to be seen. It’s still a work in progress. And then, there was this other truth I kept hidden and tucked away. I’ve had this vision. It sort of felt like it stalked me. I’d be running on a treadmill and feel and see the vision and I’d start crying. It felt so big. It felt SO scary. It felt really REALLY far far away. And then, I started to gently open it. Not totally. Just a little. Each time I opened it, I got incredible and joyful feedback. But more than that, every time I opened it I FELT pure joy in the act of doing it. What is it? This. Moving and joyfully connecting with people through movement. Dancing, sticking our tongues out, breathing, being weird, silly, sexy, wild, soft, courageous, vulnerable. ALL the things. This was a huge leap for me today teaching it at @mindbodygreen revitalize conference in front of people I deeply respect and admire. I’ve kept this little gem tucked deep deep deep inside of me for a very long time and the feedback I got today brought me to tears. Thank you @mindbodygreen for being the family I needed to help this creation birth itself into the world 🌎 and if you have that vision that keeps coming around...you MUST follow it. I want to support you and it🙌and as I learned this weekend, lots of other people do too 😽🙌🙌🙌🙌

Headed to the desert like 👁👐👁 So ready to relax, rejuvenate, replenish, receive, reiki and #revitalize with my @mindbodygreen family and so many new and old friends this weekend 🙏🌵This is one of my favorite weekends of the year. It’s my 3rd year going, and I plan to go as many more times as possible. Each time I just choose to show up with an open heart and a curious mind so I can absorb and learn and connect with people who are out in the world making a f*cking difference. I have no agenda. It’s just an intention to meet and connect with other humans so we can learn from one another, support each other and just keep shining our light in the world. Will share lots and lots on stories. In the meantime, do a quick check in before you go wherever you’re headed next in your day and ask yourself, “Am I willing to open my heart a little bit wider right now? Am I willing to clear my mind and get curious so I can be open to something new?” 😽💕💫

When so many things can feel up in the air or any time I am going through an incredible amount of transition or travel (hi 👋 summer!), one of my favorite things to do is ensure my body has a really good routine to ground upon. Taking supplements that support my sense of calm and well-being gives me a sense of peace amidst ALL of the micro and macro change my mind and body are experiencing during times of travel and any changes in my routine. While I was initially not educated or aware of CBD and all its benefits, I now love it and take this product from @sundayscaries every day. Each afternoon I take two of these gummies around 4p and it has had such a grounding and calming effect on me. Do you take CBD supplements? Have you noticed a positive impact? #sundayscariespartner #cbd #summer #grounded #travel #transitions #calmandconnected

Magic Monday💕💫💖 aka the new version of Manic Monday 👌Whenever I start a new week I do my best to take a few moments at the beginning of that Monday to pause and reflect on the JOY and gratitude I have from the week prior. I’ll write out what I’m grateful for from that past week/weekend; the things that brought me joy, what I learned from any challenging moments and how those things can help me GROW as I go forward. I’ll then write out my top 5-7 priorities for the upcoming week so I can stay focused, committed and aligned with my joy, my health and my why (knowing that I equally surrender the week to whatever is intended and needed for my highest and best 😽🙏). One of last week’s absolute JOYS was doing crystal readings for beautiful @mirandakerr during the launch of her new @koraorganics #nonibright Vitamin C Serum 🙌👏 so many beautiful humans and an absolutely intentional and magical event all around 😽💫🙌

Summer Solstice got me like 🧞‍♀️👁👁🦋! On this incredible, full, long and vibrant day, take a few moments to close your eyes and open up to your internal vitality.

Teacher = a person who helps others acquire knowledge, competence or virtue. Over the years I’ve taught lots of different people and lots of different classes. Thousands of people and hundreds of classes. And in the beginning years, my ego and fear and judgements were leading the class. My planned agenda; my expectations; my class. It took lots of time, mistakes, lots of years and lots of humility to begin changing the way I showed up to lead. Now, every time I show up to teach or lead other humans through a new practice, I set an intention that I simply become a vessel for whatever is intended or needed at this time for them, for me, for us, together, and our highest good. I don’t actually plan a class anymore. Some may find that strange or judge it in their own way. But this is what feels the most authentic, real and joyful to me. To trust Source. To let go of any agenda in being human or human-ing with others. My years of studying, falling, following, leading, trying, doing, surrendering are what now speak when I teach. In my opinion, there is no fast track to becoming a teacher. If you desire it, you will become it. If you become it, you will forever keep growing with it 🙏💫🙌 gratitude to all the teachers out there and the years they have spent in becoming 🙏

Full Moon 🌕 and Full Being Awareness! I’m so curious to know how this full moon is moving and shifting for all of you!? I am definitely feeling transitions and re-connecting to my priorities and foundation. Learning to feel confident through the uncertainty; like not knowing how things will go but also not caring to some degree because I’m just meant to keep showing up and continue growing. No need to control, to attach or to predict. There is a sense of support from the unseen so I’m just connecting to my will power and heart to keep going even though things seem cloudy right now. I am definitely noticing a desire to have alone time to explore within, even though it has felt non-existent. Some moments feel overwhelming and like I’m buried in work, emails etc. so I’m remembering to pause, prioritize and put my needs at the top of each day. Right now, so much of what I’ve known feels irrelevant and almost...insignificant. Anyone else??? Like change is comingggggg and in order to open up and receive its magik, I just have to release the known old ways and find comfort in the unknown of becoming. I pulled this book out that I’ve read SO many times because it always gets me back to a state of simplicity in my priorities. And it feels so good 🙏👌 new episode of Magik Vibes Podcast out today (link in bio!) all about PRIORITY and a bonus full moon 🌕 reiki ritual! And, if you’re in LA, join me this Friday morning (7a-9a) on the Summer Solstice 🌟☀️🌞 for a magical book club, meditation, gift bags and more @sixtyhotels Beverly Hills! An incredible Solstice vibe to connect with yourself and your priorities for the summer. Our special morning rooftop time together will help you tune into all four agreements and learn how they can CHANGE your life 🙏 the spiritual teachings and healing lessons in this incredible book has been a guide for millions, including me, on their path to growth and well-being🙏 link to rsvp in stories or via my website. 😽😽🌕👋🙌 happy strawberry 🍓 full moon loves!!!

And to all the dad’s being celebrated today!

Friday Feels: Are you number 1 or number 2 in your life and your priorities? This past week I told myself I was super relaxed and at ease getting back into the swing of things. That I was going to be focused with my list of GSD (get sh*t done ✅) as I got back into work, my responsibilities and commitments. I QUICKLY realized that was far from the truth, and I watched myself have zero priorities each day as I got into life and work and made everyone else’s emails, texts, DM’s etc my priority. It’s not that anyone else’s needs, messages, connections were irrelevant, it’s that I didn’t have a clear sense of self, of my focus or intentions or directives for each day. I wasn’t taking a few breaths in the am to focus on what I needed or intended; I wasn’t working out when I knew my body wanted to move, I wasn’t putting my damn phone down to sit and have a dinner with my husband without technology. I was just letting myself get into other action that was not my priority or for my highest good. Today, I’m recording the 3rd episode of Magik Vibes, the podcast, and it’s going to be all about becoming connected and you becoming your first PRIORITY. 💫💫💫

FREEDOM. To feel. To laugh. To cry. To breathe. To take up some f*cking space in the world. To be bright. To let go. To ground. To surrender. To fly. To be mad. To be sensual. To be scared. To BE.

HOME: {noun} “the place where one lives permanently, especially as a member of a family or household.” Permanently. After leaving North Dakota for college when I was 18, the word permanently has ceased to exist in my vocabulary. I’ve not permanently lived somewhere since I graduated high school. I’ve not permanently owned any of my businesses or worked at any one job. Have not permanently slept in the same bed. Not permanently cooked in the same kitchen. Not woken up to the same view. Not driven the same car. The only thing that has been consistent/permanent is that home is truly wherever my heart is. Sometimes it has felt very uncomfortable to not have one permanent thing I feel like I can come home to. I’ve even thought, at many different times in my life, to stay someplace that I’d clearly outgrown simply because it made it me feel like I had a home. Coming home to my heart was the answer all along. Not things, not objects, not a physical home or bed. Just me. My body. My heart. My love. I’m SO happy to be back in LA; the place where I feel the most like I am home inside my being. But knowing that after the last several weeks of not being in our home, of immense travel, of countless cities and hotels...as long as I’m with my heart, I can find home all over the world. 🌎❤️🙏 ps for those in LA, I am SO excited to be co-leading a panel @denmeditation TOMORROW evening called “You Can Heal Yourself” with some of my very own healers that have helped me along the healing journey 😍 will also be sharing some of my private, never heard before, wild experiences of healing too 😽 Link in bio ☝️

EPIC ending to an amazing two weeks of travel: seeing this queen goddess @rachelplatten perform her heart out for NYC at Madison Square Garden! She closed the show with “fight song” and as I looked back and watched the audience going crazy and singing their hearts out (me included) with her to this song, it reminded me that we ALL go through and will go through darkness and TOUGH times even when there is incredible light inside of us. Even when everything feels like it’s going wrong, working against you, if you’re feeling isolated, struggling with illness, anxiety, fear of ANY kind, grief, change [insert anything else you’re feeling]...there is still life and light and power and strength inside of you. The light, even if it feels far away or really really dim, IS still there. And, if you need a big release and reminder, turn that song up full blast, sing it at the top of your lungs, let the tears out and remember the light you’re really made of 💫🙌🙌

Woke up early this am to give a million kisses to my hubby who headed back to LA a day early. When the door closed and I laid back in our hotel bed, I realized it was my first time being alone in two weeks. My body felt the most insane amount of vibrant energy from all the things and people these past two weeks: Israel, 50 new incredible friends, my birthday with some of the people I love the most, my podcast launch, incredible food and so much more. When I realized it was just me, I felt super happy to finally be alone and super sad and unclear of what the F to do next. I couldn’t fall asleep so I just started meditating (laying down) and gave myself a little reiki. Suddenly, all of my emotions turned into gratitude for one simple, incredible thing. That I have lived to see age 38. That I’ve been gifted this incredible gift of life. That it is truly a gift to be alive. I couldn’t feel anything else but that. And that is more than enough 🙏✌️🙌 sending you love from here! Ps I’m sending out my newsletter today with some FREE incredible content and videos from a woman I admire and adore. Head to Kelseyjpatel.com to sign up for my newsletter and it will be in your inbox later today ✌️💫

Middle child 🙋‍♀️ eating a toasted everything bagel w/ scallion cream cheese 🥯 from a corner deli, drinking a matcha tea 🍵 with her big sis and baby bro and feeling the most grateful that God gifted me all of these things in this life. I would NOT be the person I am today or have the incredible love and joy in my heart without these amazing human beings. We have been through a lot TOGETHER. And, all I know is that because of them I continue to feel strong enough and brave enough and loved enough to keep going, giving, trying, feeling, creating and receiving with JOY and loads of love in this life 👭👫💃🕺💃 #siblings

Happy New Moon! This pic is my TOTAL vibe right now. Celebrating the JOY that my brand new podcast, Magik Vibes, launched on Apple/Spotify/Stitcher today! Link in bio to listen! That tomorrow is my b-day! That I just went on the most epic, life-changing trip throughout Israel and made 50 new best friends along the way. That I was introduced to a new style of dance in Tel Aviv called gaga (pictured here) MUCH more on that to come soon; and that I am now in New York City with my husband, my brother and sister and a few of my best friends who journeyed all the way here to meet me to celebrate my b-day tomorrow. Feeling fucking MAGIK ✨⚡️💫 and sending that love and these new moon vibes through to all of you in the NEW podcast! Hope you get a chance to listen and that it supports and loves you right where you are 🙏

Connection; family; belonging, community. A NECESSARY part of being well. Feeling people love you. Knowing you belong. Accepting you are seen, worthy, held and embraced by other humans. What does it take: BEING VULNERABLE AF! For me: that means to ACTIVELY choose and participate over and over and over again in sharing, crying, laughing, dancing, asking questions, listening, hugging, looking, talking from a place of sharing within and challenging my boundaries of what’s “ok” to share and what’s “not ok” to share. And for those that asked, I placed your prayers in the western wall yesterday and it is being held and blessed 😽🙏🙌🙌🙌

kelseyjpatel

My loves: I am in Jerusalem right now and headed to the Western Wall tonight. Please share ANY of your prayers, needs, desires, intentions below (for yourself or a loved one), and I will carry them with me and into this sacred experience. 🙏🙏 This pic is from yesterday when I was just outside the Church of the Holy Sepulchre - where Jesus Christ was crucified - and felt the most intense and heavy and beautiful and powerful energy all wrapped into one moment. Swipe to see where Christ was laid after he was crucified and cleaned before being taken to the tomb 🙌🙌🙌

kelseyjpatel

VIBEZZZZZ ✌️ I have no idea what day it is; am doing my best to keep up with where exactly we are on the map every day; have just enough time to quickly send my husband a text every morning and evening; sleeping about 5-6 hours each night (I normally sleep 8-10); less than 5 minutes of meditating and reiki each am (normally 20-30 each am); drinking whatever coffee and milk is at breakfast (routine at home is organic coffee, collagen and mct oil or cappuccino with almond milk); have had zero intermittent fasting (was at 16 hours at home) and as shown here am extra sweaty, dirty and without makeup. All to say, I am adaptable. Flexible. Capable of being in new and unknown environments. Even though this all terrified me because I get nervous about having enough energy, about immunity, about sleep when traveling and going into the unknown. This pic is from the Syrian border of Golan Heights after hours on a bus getting car sick, crying because I missed my husband, laughing, driving an atv and all the vibes. A reminder we are all SO fucking able and adaptable when we just show up for the journey 👣👊🧳✌️ thank you for pushing me beyond my own reality @realityisrael

kelseyjpatel

Tel Aviv! Wow. In the last 36 hours I have learned the most complex, fascinating, intense and beautiful history of Israel, tasted incredible and intentional food, laughed and cried with new human beings from all over the world, danced and moved into the deepest places of my body challenging pleasure and force all at once and felt immense amounts of ahh the entire time. No idea how I got this fortunate to be here but I am taking it ALL in 🙏🦋🙏 We are on day 2 of 8 days in this journey and the only thing I know is that beautiful big things are just going to keep coming...ps posting this at 11:33 💫

5a wake up call, and I’m en route to my very first trip EVER to Israel 🇮🇱 sitting on the plane and feeling so excited, grateful, open and NERVOUS. This is a trip I’ve dreamed about since I was a little girl. Israel has been calling for me years and for some reason it’s almost like it was always a dream that I feared might not ever become my reality. I don’t know why it just felt far and perhaps it’s because I wasn’t ready. Either way, I’ve been able to feel it in my body and bones and known it’s power and intensity my entire life. The most ironic part about going there today, in 2019, is that I’m going with a group called REALITY ( @realityisrael 🙏) because my dear friend @elizabethkott nominated me for this immersive cultural experience as a leader in wellness. I’m so overwhelmed that I keep feeling the brink of tears every time I remember that I’m really going to Israel. Even when we had group calls to hear about the trip or got emails I started to cry. It’s so wild how our being just knows these things innately. And now, the moment is here. The healing and beauty and history and pain and magic and all that is this incredible land...I am so amazed at this life. Thank you thank you thank you 🙏

So excited to share 🙏 Magik Vibes, The Podcast is on its way to youuuuu 💫 Coming THIS June and launching on the new moon and the day before my birthday! Many of you have asked me to do a podcast for years and while I wanted to, I just didn’t feel ready and knew that if I was going to create something it had to feel aligned, intentional and on purpose. So...after lots of letting go and not knowing if I would ever decide to make this happen, it is now COMING in less than two weeks! I am ecstatic and ready and have so much in store that has been brewing. You and I will share space and breath and possibility together each week. Get ready for a little bit of ALL every Monday when a new episode invites you to go a bit deeper, to get a little bigger, to receive and release with the moon cycles, to ask yourself for new awareness, to explore your version of radiant health, of outrageous abundance and new levels of your own inner peace and pure joy. Each episode will have distance reiki healing with a guided meditation from my heart to yours from all over the world 🌎 and SO MUCH MORE 💫🙌🙏 more to come soon; but for now a warm welcome and heaps of gratitude to all who have been encouraging me, asking me and nagging me to start this magik vibe 😁🙌🙌🙌

My face these days. Not smiling but not not smiling. Ya know what I mean? Like I’m here and there is lots of stuff happening - e.g., moving out of our entire DTLA home, going on a bunch of travel, starting some cool new stuff - but I’m a bit...indifferent? Not sure what the word is but it’s a new way of feeling. Before, if any of this would have happened alongside big purpose projects, a new level of travel and lots of other things, I would have gone into major HIGH ALERT mode. Thinking I was just so “super busy” that everything/everyone “needed my attention” - I was “so tired” at the end of the day and “didn’t have time to eat lunch” and “needed some wine” or “didn’t have time to talk” and got annoyed with my husband for asking me if I had time to look at restaurants and hotels he had found for our summer trip 🤯😣. Now, it’s this place of...PRESENCE. Omg. That’s the word 🙏🙌 I’m here. In the moment. Eating a delicious lunch on the floor, answering emails, talking to Ap about our new intentions for the house and planning a date night, recording a podcast, filming for @glamouruk and packing in peace ✌️ wow. What a ride. And, funny enough, I almost wrote the word BORED above vs indifferent thinking that without the feeling of chaos that’s what life is. So NOT true. So if you’re feeling bored or indifferent right now, perhaps it’s because you’ve found yourself in the present moment...and it’s just a NEW feeling 🙏🙌

You know what I LOVE!? Celebrating, supporting and uplifting the people who are helping to heal the world in their own, unique and POWER-FULL way! This queen goddess of a healer, @loroxburgh just released her first book with @goop called “The Power Source” and it is wisdom and medicine beyond words to align your body, mind and spirit. She has been doing this work for more than a decade and is an expert in the powerful medicine of body and life alignment. Bonus is that she is someone whose heart just shines through and through and her level of care and passion is immeasurable 🙏🙌 hope you will join me in aligning with this book’s power 💫

Just working away over here on this rainy LA day as I get ready for some INSANE summer travel — doing my best to balance work, play, an entire house pack out and move out and all the other life things. Thankfully, I FINALLY started taking CBD on the regular last month and it has been a game changer. Every day at 4p, I chew on these delightful little gummies as an afternoon treat. The CBD is high quality full spectrum and sourced from a family-owned hemp farm in Colorado. Knowing this little treat (tastes like old school sour patch kids!) comes into my body every afternoon helps keep me from kicking into super stress mode and taking that into the evening. My fave is the "vegan AF" @sundayscariescbd and they're always in my purse and as Ap knows I'm stingy AF with these little treats ;) use code kelsey10 for 10% off and enjoy all the things that come your way this summer! #sundayscaries #cbd #ad #sundayscariescbd

Monday after Mother’s Day and a mini-vacation with my hubby, sister and her fiancé. I’m emotional; a little sad; a little scared; a little angry; have shit to do; head down and emails; packing up our house for a one month move out because of a neighbors water leak. All this after an amazing weekend with laughter, relaxation, joy and even tears together between the four of us just talking about life, it’s intensity, it’s majesty and everything in between. I’ve cried three times today. May cry more. It’s just a day 🙏 ps just after writing this one of my bff’s @snowbunnieski came to my front door, and I sobbed again as she hugged me so tight 😭 #monday #mothersday2019 #raw

New Moon, New LIGHT! Feeling so much lightness, ease and flow right now; even as things present themselves as new, unknown, intense or as BIG decisions/changes. It’s such an incredible feeling to keep connecting to your internal rhythm no matter what you’re seeing, feeling, doing or being faced with - even amidst massive amounts of change and shifting. On this new moon how can you keep coming back to you and your personal, beautiful and unique light-filled rhythm? Xo! ✨🌙💫

So much energy these past few days and it had me feeling wildly depleted and weird. Anyone else? When I remembered to come back to listening and going inward, I found myself doing reiki on my heart and repeating this mantra every morning: “I am worthy of having a great day today. I am worthy of today being a great day. I am worthy of having a great day.” So...if you’re like me and the 95% of you that voted in my stories yesterday saying you were feeling depleted/exhausted/tired, just remember you are still worthy of having a great day 🙏🙌🙌🙌 love and happy Monday! P.S. I will be teaching my final spring/summer Reiki I Certification this weekend in LA @denmeditation 🙏 Link in bio 🙌

Dear Sisters: together, we are deepening the self work. Holding new light for one another to see self-shadows without judgment or fear. Quieting and quitting our ego’s need for approval, or its desire to prove anything to anyone, especially one another. Trusting our cycles together like we trust the moon’s medicine. Receive the energy of releasing with today’s full moon in Libra to bring balance between the being body and the doing body. This one is for all sisters, near and far, known and strangers, I bow to you and honor you as we cycle together with the moon so we may collectively heal and rise with one another. I dedicate this moon and post to my love @ashley_neese who just published her first book: How to Breathe this month. It is pure healing, peace and love. Her breath work is powerful, potent and cleansing like no other - similar to a full moon ritual. Allow this book to create new spaces, new support systems, deeper self healing and you will receive beyond your wildest imagination. Love of blessings and graceful healing to all my sisters out there! 🙏🌕🙌

Felt a sudden urgency to post this reminder: I do not need to respond to anyone’s calls, texts, needs, emails, DM’s to be a good, loving, kind, compassionate and purposeful soul. Just in case you forgot, you are safe to let other people’s happiness and health be in their own hands 🙏 take good care of you and keep checking in with yourself to remember who you are and what you truly need moment by moment, breath by breath 😽🙌 Repeat: I am safe to let go; I am safe to let go; I am safe to trust myself and I am safe to let go 🙌

Honored to be in the new @iamwellandgood cookbook! 💞 (fun fact: there is even an MVP reference to Ap in my recipe 😌) This beauty is loaded with incredible recipes from some of my friends, colleagues and fellow Well + Good Council members. Humans I both adore and deeply admire in the wellness space. Congrats to @melissejoy + @alexiabrue 😽🙏 and special thanks to my wonderful chef @leighhyattanderson 🙌 with her magik, we got to share my absolute favorite, most-delish, mouth watering Peanut Butter Cups: dairy-free, gluten-free, vegetarian 🌱.

Human Design! How many of you have done a human design reading or downloaded your own chart to navigate!? I had my chart done this past November with @intuitivegalaxy and it was incredible. I got a “feeling” I wanted to do it after randomly finding her name online and knowing she just felt like the person to read for me. I had briefly heard about Human Design from my love @ssimbari 🙌 a few months prior but never felt called. When I found Amanda’s name online, I got a good vibe and decided to just book a session for myself. I learned that I am a GENERATOR! Which basically means my whole way of human-ing 😁 is finding out and feeling into what my joy is and living that truth in each moment of each day. Part of that for me is NOT having a consistent schedule and allowing myself to flow with what feels joyful each day. Like yesterday, eating my first meal around 1p outside; not starting a drop of work until 2:30p and then doing yoga with my hubby at 7:15p on our living room floor (see stories!) and then today, feeling a desire to wake up at 6:45a for Pilates and no morning meditation. All amazing and all different. I also learned some other incredible little and big things about myself, like the fact that I love a stocked pantry 😂👌and if we go out to eat together, I will always want to sit in a booth (yes!) and the best approach for me when making big and small life, work, relationship decisions. I ended up giving my bff’s and family a session with Amanda for Christmas and they all LOVED it. What is your human design!? 👇 if you haven’t had a reading yet, I highly recommend my girl @intuitivegalaxy and you can get a discount this month of April with code: MAGIK 💫👏🙌 ps this is a surprise post to Amanda - not paid, sponsored or any kickbacks. She gave me a code for my newsletter, and I want to share it with all of you too 🥳 Amanda is lovely, kind, passionate and incredibly talented; and, I love supporting other female magicians 🧙‍♀️🥰

Happy new moon 🌙 loves! There are SO many ways we can ritual on these auspicious moon cycles and each one of them is PERFECT 👌 even when you do nothing and honor the space of being exactly where and how and who you are in that moment 🙏 I spent the day in an active ritual practice by playing with sweet baby V and taking a long, nourishing, slow, joyful two-hour walk with her beautiful mama @rachelplatten We shared, laughed, cried, sang, giggled, prayed, vocally set our new moon intentions and stopped to smell the roses (even the ones that weren’t roses and didn’t smell 😂) then we came back to cuddle and ahh and love on sweet baby. I then drove to @denmeditation to lead a packed room of incredible humans through a new moon manifesting workshop. It was a divine day, and I didn’t write down ANY of my new moon intentions because I activated them instead with words from my voice that come from my heart, and get elevated and supported through my community and our connection 🌙💫🙌 it all works and it’s all filled with magik so whatever you did or didn’t do, 👏👏👏 to your intuitive ways and keep on being YOU!

Okkkkk, 👋 spring! I see you. I see you and your bounty and your bunnies and your birds and bees 🐝 and your beautiful flowers 💐 I see you, and I thank you and I may STILL feel my feelings. Loves, don’t get caught up in the “omg it’s spring and everyone is so happy and awake and getting shit done, and I’m feeling sad, depleted, sick (insert ANY emotion) and that’s bad or wrong or means this or that about me.” That’s your silly 🙃 ego yapping and comparing as it sometimes does. Yes, spring is here and tomorrow is a new moon AND you are RIGHT ON TIME wherever you are and however you feel. You are so so so right on time. Love 💕 this moment. Appreciate yourself and your emotional seasons, which may be totally opposite of the projected “spring” season. You are just right right now, sweet love. Much magik and blessings from me in my bath tub 🛀 healing and nurturing and loving my current fatigue feelings. And, if you’re in LA, I’m leading a new moon manifesting workshop tmrw eve @denmeditation 8p-9:30p and all of you and your feelings and being are welcome 😽💫🐝 link in stories or via website ☝️

Spent the weekend in Austin, TX, with two of my closest NoDak girlfriends. We’ve known each other since age 21 when we all worked in the U.S. Senate and didn’t know a damn thing about adulting. Now, 3 weddings and 6 kids later, we have a Harvard Law Grad who is a federal prosecutor taking guns and sex traffickers off the streets; a senior lobbyist in Washington, D.C. and a reiki healer 😁 Our jobs and lives have changed since we met, many times over, but our love, joy and ability to be real AF together and cheer each other on is a constant and one of the greatest gifts in my life. Spent the weekend eating tacos 🌮 laughing so hard my cheeks still hurt, staying up late gabbing with giggles and pouring our hearts to each other at every table and meal 🥘 and I’m now headed home with the most exhausted and happy wholeness 🧡💛🧡 P.S. there were a million reasons NOT to do this trip for all of us bc of life, work, family etc. and it was just the medicine we all needed. SO...if you’re debating a girls weekend, I highly recommend saying yes! 💛

Every 👏single 👏time 👏I get to speak, share, breath, practice and connect with other human beings a part of my soul gets spanned WIDE open, and I feel so much joy, so PRESENT, so spacious, humbled, grateful and free. It’s like the part of me that gets afraid, overwhelmed or worried just shuts the f up and goes to sleep because it knows there is no space for those ridiculous thoughts when we are in the presence of other magikal souls. I am so grateful to the tribe of humans who keep showing up to these experiences and entrust me to take them on a deep, healing journey. You have my deepest respect, reverence and gratitude 🙏🙏🙏 Extra thanks to my love @meagankong and her incredible community @kongfitclub (go sign up now for TONS of access to amazing free events in LA, even if you’re just visiting town!) and to the partners at @roomservicebc for your gorgeous space that I will be back to every month! And, @haloauragraphic + @livebeaming for the super magik to our morning 💫💕🙌 love and Sunday vibes to all!

Me and My Papi in the beautiful wild poppy of Cali today 🧡 Such a beautiful day and feeling SO different than these past 10 days. I had Norovirus from a trip to Sayulita, Mexico, and was feeling pretty awful for a full week. Simultaneously, I was mentally/emotionally so f*cking DEEP in this retrograde, equinox, full moon week. When you’re sick, it can be really easy to spend too much time on social media, and I did for a couple days. • I compared myself to others constantly, obsessively watching a couple of women’s Instagram stories and thinking how much better their lives are then mine • telling myself that because I don’t have kids of my own I’m missing out on life • I told myself I have bad sleeping and eating habits • I sat in other vibes like self doubt, worry, laziness, indifference, sadness (lots of unexplainable tears) and then occasional peace, gratitude and acceptance. All this is to say, we humans are a lot like this here nature. We are vulnerable, we are wild, we are unpredictable, we are beautiful and we are meant to have cycles. We plant seeds, we birth them, we grow, we spring to life, we wilter, we release, we die and we go back down and do it all over again. It’s natural. We are cyclical. We have ups and downs and it doesn’t mean anything! It just IS. So we can keep going and keep changing and perhaps while on the way, we can even invite love, acceptance, gratitude and a bit of contentment for this wild journey we are all on 💫🧡💛

Honored to have sat with @jasonwachob on my recent trip to NYC for a real, raw and all things reiki chat on the @mindbodygreen podcast. I have a deep love and respect for @mindbodygreen 🙌 They were one of just a few media outlets to meet with me and my publicist on our first press trip to NYC in 2016. At that time, people weren’t really talking about reiki in the wellness space. Even further, their team held space for me to create the first Reiki 101 course on the @mindbodygreen class portal. It felt very full circle to be back in the same room that we recorded the course, now chatting about reiki as a mainstream healing modality. Several of you have DM’d me about this podcast interview, and I love hearing all of your stories about how you found energy healing work! If you haven’t tuned in yet, take a listen, especially if you’ve been working on energetic boundaries or need some inspiration for setting new ones. On the episode, I share a 5-minute practice I recommend for getting in tune with the energy around us and the visualization I do every day to set boundaries 🙏💫🙌 hope you enjoy 🌟

Celebrating international women’s day the only way I know how...by Being with them, by loving them, seeing them, letting myself be seen, by sharing together, crying, dancing, laughing, giving, receiving, moving fear to love, meditating, softening, whispering, cheering, eating, hugging and all the things together. Women. We are fucking incredible. We have risen and we are together for the journey. I bow to each of you, ALL my sisters in life, and to the ones who have paved the path for us to stand (or lay 🙏 if we like 😉) in our own skin and witness our greatest becoming. 💫💆‍♀️💫🌕💫🌟

Last night, I arrived home at exactly 10:50p from an amazing 7 day whirlwind trip to NYC (this pic!) and the first thing I did before taking my shoes or jacket off was fill up a bottle of @rising_springs and start hydrating - and it was the first thing I drank this am before leaving the house to fly out to Sayulita, Mexico to teach at a retreat. While in NY, I had a few boxes of the water shipped to me (note: they can ship to YOU too at home or anytime you travel in the U.S.!) so I could keep my daily routine intake, which is: Wake up, fill up a 24 oz water bottle and drink 8 oz before my morning coffee with almond milk. Then continue drinking the water until it’s gone. I drink mostly spring water or alkaline water the rest of the day. At night, I drink 1-2 cups of Rising Springs again before bed when taking my bedtime supplements. I’ve been drinking the water for more than a year now and am SO 👏 GRATEFUL 👏 to know about it, to be able to drink water straight from the Earth 🌍 and to know the owner personally and her commitment to sustainability and giving people access to this natural, beautiful, rich in mineral, UNFILTERED water 💦 if you have any q’s, feel free to dm me or @risk ng_springs or leave it below in case others have same q😽💫💦 In the meantime, I’ll now be enjoying the 🌊 form of water all weekend in my bikini 👙 😁#risingspringspartner #ad

“From dust you were born and to dust you shall return.” Such powerful reminders and vibes on this New Moon, Ash Wednesday, Mercury Retrograde 🙏💫 really feeling the energy of “gratitude for change today “ and asking myself what else or where else am I ready/willing to shift over these next 40 days? What brings me the deepest joy in life right now and what am I willing to do to create more of that? When do I feel my passion in the healthiest forms? Which relationships do I want to work on and give energy to right now? Just feeling this palpable sensation that I will not be here forever so how do I want to share myself and my light in this world? What can I do that is in alignment with my joy to make this world a brighter and better place then when I arrived? Side note: It’s been a year or two since I’ve had ashes (was born and raised Catholic in North Dakota through the roots of my Irish ☘️ grandpa) and it felt really serene and beautiful to be there again today 🙏

Yep yep 💫 Love IS Dope ✌️AND!!! Boundaries ARE Medicine ✌️been HYPER aware of how much I’m letting other people’s “needs” “wants” “invitations” in these days. Basically, it’s a zero tolerance policy if it doesn’t feel aligned, genuine or joyful to me. Some people treat me like they “need” me or that I’m here to give them something they don’t already have. And, what’s amazing is that my closest friends, reiki students and others are also getting confronted FACE to FACE with these scenarios and being asked to create NEW boundaries. The brand NEW ones that are based in love and service - first to your own desires, needs, priorities and JOY so that you can share that with the world and serve others. Because we are all getting mirrors to become clearer, to love ourselves deeper, to feel healthier, stronger, more connected to our purpose here and THEN out to serve and help others. Clearing space like you’ve probably never known or felt it before. I can’t do pretend. I refuse to repeat old patterns. I won’t keep showing up like I’ve only ever known. God has a plan for all of us and my purpose is to keep following my path and my joy. The sky keeps changing and so do I. Every day is different and so am I. Leave a ✌️if you’re feeling this!
