••THAIPUSAM 2019•• KL, Malasya
•This has been so far one of the best decisions I’ve taken in the last years.
Wanna say Thanks to all the people that supported me in this path and offer to Mhurugan.
Thanks to master Swamiji for accepting me participating And @ronnyneedles for open us the doors to this great experience.
As a woman isn’t that commun to be taken hooks and being part of the Thaipusam procession like this. I knew it But surprisingly I felt so welcome and supported from everyone that never could be more happy. Thanks my friends & family for give me the strength and confidence. Is never easy in my mind until it becomes real.
I• nfinity Grateful •🙏🏾🖤🙏🏾
It all started this morning when I read the quote "paths are made by walking" ("Wege entstehen dadurch, dass man sie geht") by Franz Kafka. This quote puts my truth so well into one phrase and it's been my mantra for so long. From my point of view to listen to yourself, to trust yourself and to follow your intuition, is the most honest and freeing thing you can do. My intuition has always had a strong voice and in the beginning I wished for it to be somewhat a bit more quiet so I could go on with my life like people expected me to. The view times I actually ignored it, it made me feel miserable and literally disabled my body (at one point I was so tired to meet the expectations, I didn't have enough energy to to go buy bread just around the corner). That's when I realized that the prize of meeting people's expectations was way too high and the only way out was to get honest with myself, listen to my inner compass- no matter what and walk my own path. Of course this led to difficult/ painful/ tiring confrontations and situations, as well as countless awkward moments, but over the time my path has led me to so much magic, incredible moments and beautiful people that I know everything will always work out in my favor. I fully trust in the journey and my own strength and ability to create the life that gives me so much joy and fulfillment. I feel at peace and ease and I don't blame those who don't understand or judge my path since no one else knows where it leads to and yes from the outside it might look very unstable and unsure. I could write so much more on this but that's not the point. What I do hope to achieve with this little text, is to inspire and encourage you to listen to your own inner compass and to follow it more often. Be brave and trusting and if you feel like you need guidance with operating your own compass and going on this inner quest, I am more than happy to be of help and shine some light so you can see more clearly! But your path, you'll have to walk alone ❤️
As a fellow self-limiter, holding myself back and staying invisible in my business for the longest time: I'll be here, rooting for you, every step of the way 💜
So tell me, when it comes to your creative blog or business, how are you limiting yourself? 👇
Chris told me taking a picture with me was on his “bucket list” of things he wanted to accomplish when he came by to the studio in Austin this past week. Lol hard to process but it’s people like him and all the other fans who continue to support what I do even possible in the first place. It was a pleasure hanging out with you brother!

Treasure your time with Spirit. -
A chance to be in the moment. -
Asking nothing, only to be of service. -
Allowing your connection to unfold. -
We are building mutual trust, commitment and understanding. -
This is a growing relationship with our spirit team. -
Which needs tenderly nurturing, our time and attention. -
The time invested in sitting for spirit is it's own reward. - ✨
Mixed media on canvas. 💞I truly believe when faced with options and major life decisions we need to check in and see which path brings us the most joy, excitement and warmth when we think about it. This is the mind, body, spirit connection confirming our desire even if it seems crazy and impossible. This is the path to follow. 💖👣💖
The other day I went on a wonderful date with my fiancé @_bystephanie.
It was SO NICE to get out of the house, it’s been a while. We both work from home and have a little one, so the times we get out of the house are few and far between.
What this makes me realize is that sometimes we need restriction in life to show us how nice it is to be free. Sometimes we begin to take things in life for granted when we’re so used to them.
I’m going to take some time today to write down what I’m grateful for, what excites me in life, what I want to attract into my life.
What are you grateful for?
"Be so good, they can't ignore you" said comedian Steve Martin. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
He wasn't bragging or being big-headed he was simply recommending that the way to really enjoy your work is to get undeniably good at something. This is common in the lives of people who love what they do, they build up a rare and valuable skill-set that their passion for their work is a by-product of that skill development.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We've kinda got it all back to front. Often we get romanced by the idea that we should be following our passion, when really we should be building skills first of all which will then lead us to our passion.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What do YOU need to do to become really good?
I'm having a think about this too! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“There are no idle thoughts. All thinking produces form at some level.”
For me, yesterday was not an awesome day when it came to my thoughts and their production.
I started the day off strong, then slowly but surely allowed the thoughts of doubt and pre-emptive failure to creep in.
Slowly but surly the "worlds" projection of aging in entertainment started to take over my mind...
Slowly but surly the "worlds" idea of success and fitness started creeping up in my mind...
Slowly but surly I found myself whispering to myself (as I worked out) "You Suck"...
Slowly but surly my thoughts won and I found myself sitting on the couch, watching useless TV FEELING useless and throwing in the towel on the day.
Here's the deal, I KNOW that I wasn't living my best life
I KNOW I let my mind spiral out of control
I KNOW I'M NOT ALONE HERE .
This happens to everyone.
This often happens more to those then we realize and saying "But you're gifted, you're strong, you're pretty, you're blah blah blah" doesn't actually make a difference.
At least not for me.
These are internal battles we have to fight with ourselves.
The plus side is, with the right people, the right surroundings, the right book, and the right PRACTICE, we most certainly can have LESS of these thoughts or, at the very least, learn to get rid of them quicker!
You ARE Strong
You ARE beautiful
You CAN do what you feel called too
YOU JUST HAVE TO SEE IT AND BELIEVE IT.
No one can do that for us.
Creativity takes courage! And every creator must have felt it.
Loose florals will always have my heart ❣ Did you know you can fix mistakes in Watercolor? If you don’t like something you just painted for example a branch, quickly take some clean tissue, very lightly wet it and press that tissue over the branch firmly! Repeat as necessary... but this is only possible when that branch is wet ✨ Makes sense?
This far reaching view contains much of Nicaragua and many volcanos and places steeped in folklore and myth. The quote is in my booklet from my first week of shamanic studies. I’m on my way back across a wildly windy lake to the island of Ometepe for another week of shamanic studies. I’m waiting for my ferry, reading my notes like a good student in pursuit of a kind of magic I think we all know at some deep level.
*when spirit guides ask you to share your thoughts via Instagram* 💥💥💥 I've never tried to be something I'm not, That's part of the reason life got so hectic for me. I'm a true believer of natural healing and spiritual practices. I believe in witches and ghost. I've always seen and heard things that weren't visible to the naked eye. I've experienced astral travel. I've been to the future (without even really knowing until I caught up with myself). I'm a strong supporter of Medicinal and recreational use of Cannabis. It's just not something I do; It's a passion that's growing at rapid timing and not just for the effects when I'm meditating but the actual health benefits without the thc. I now practice divination which I was called too do. My grandmother's were/are spiritual and Christians. I'm not going to say I'm a church going Christian but I do believe in God and worship him and thank him for every journey he puts in my path. I've accepted who I am (after years of not fully knowing) and no one can take this joy away from me. I worked hard to get here and I can only go higher. I've accepted my different and sat down with my fears and darkness. Nothing can stop me now. 💥💥💥 #blowitinthewinddddd#growth#acceptance#spiritualawakenings#followyourpath
Anxiety is back 👍🏻 -
Last night at the gym I had a full blown anxiety attack in the beginning of my workout. 🙃 My headphones died so I was working off the video only and my head started to spiral. My body started to go numb because I wasn’t breathing properly and I had to stop my workout. 🏋🏻♀️ I’m sharing this because not everyday is a ⭐️GREAT ⭐️day.. and although it might seem like my mental game is strong everyday, I have moments too.. ❗️BIG ONES❗️, in public spaces. -
I have found so much strength in my accountability groups as I share my best and worst days and STILL feel so loved and supported! 🌸🌸 -
My journey isn’t linear, I move forward and back, I have highs and lows but at the end of the day I know that whether I had a bang on day with 5/5 nutrition, all my waters and shake, or if it’s a day that falls short, I’ve got my amazing group of women to support me through it. -
So today I 🙏🏻 thank 🙏🏻 my body and my mind for taking care of me and protecting me, even if it’s a little misguided. I remind myself that sometimes we don’t have to have a “good” or “bad” day, but we just need to HAVE A DAY! 🌸
And with that in mind, I had a bowl of ice cream and called it a day.
Keeping a #journal is a great way to keep track of how your journey using #CBD is going. Write down what brand you are using, what dose and a quick sentence or two about how you feel that day. This can help you figure out your bodies optimum #dailydose, preferred dosing method and which brands work best for you
