You are always in our ♥️s
Love you Mom xoxoxo
This oh soo beautiful lady I met is so full of love, life, strength and energy. Those prominent wrinkles on her face are probably the mark of her journey in this life, those green eyes speak so much more than what she actually wanted to verbally speak, those colours she’s wearing channelling the inner younger version of herself that she amazingly is, the nose rings significantly represents her culture tradition & much more.
One woman - without having to speak for herself radiates so much about self already! She certainly must be a #goddess .
My son was so handsome and always will be💎 He is my Light & Love through all of this incurable pain. I could stare at this picture all day and cry or smile, wonder or feel, get angry or love, wish or ask why but all that is truly known is my forever immense love for him💎 #angeloslight#loveandlight#angelorangel#imissmyson
As you guys know I’m huge in self-care and self-love and one of the ways that I nourish myself is by pampering myself AT HOME — doing the things that I enjoy, which is sometimes doing absolutely nothing at all. ☺️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀
Participating in self-care doesn’t always have to be about spending money or going to a luxurious spa, learn how to nurture yourself at home and take that extra 30 minutes post bathing to moisturize your entire body, spray a little perfume on your wrist and thighs, go the extra mile and practice some Ayurvedic practices like tongue scraping. Do your hair in a different style, put on some comfy but sexy clothes (yes all while at home). Put on a little lip gloss and maybe one piece of jewelry. I love doing these things for myself — (and my man loves it too)! 😽 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀
These things make you feel really good. Really get into ENJOYING the moments of taking care of yourself. You will glow from the inside out, and when you’re shining, glowing and feeling good about yourself — you’ll attract those positive, high vibes into your life as well. 💋

Everything in existence vibrates, and so we are surrounded by sound all the time. But what can understanding vibrational sound do for you? 🎼🙏🏻✨
In nature, vibrations travel via water and air. 🌊 🌬
This is significant when you consider the human body is approximately 65 percent water. 🌊💙 What vibrations or sounds are we communicating to one another, and what sort of energy are we producing for ourselves and for the rest of humanity?
Sound is a potent, powerful energy that can express love and concern, or cause great pain and destruction. Human consciousness has begun to accept the possibility that we live in a magical world where the powerful energy vibrations made by instruments, positive thoughts, and words of love and harmony produce peace and beauty while vibrations lacking this positive energy produce distortion. #lovevibration#livefromtheheart#loveandlight#soundvibration#tibetansingingbowl#rimming#angelsoundtherapy
Yesterday I talked about how perceived limits in life are 100% tied to the limits of your emotions. I also shared that emotions are like a box of crayons and having a giant box of emotional crayons leads to a healthy mind, body, and spirit.
Today I’ll tell you about a time in my life when I realized that my emotional box of crayons was limited.
One day I was sitting in my adjunct professor office, which was not even an office but the common area that connected the HR offices. I had just gotten off the phone with one of my mentors. She told me she could not longer write letters of support for my job applications because it was clear I had put my family first over my career. And I sat there and took it all in.
I sat there in my non-office feeling so many things. I was happy about my amazing husband grateful to be pregnant with my third daughter. Proud of my accomplishments. In 2011 I was part of the 2% of Mexican-American individuals that had earned a PhD in Earth Science that year. I had worked at Yale University. I was an adjunct professor.
At the same time I felt mad that my values didn’t match those of my mentor. I was frustrated that I had not landed that professor position. And I felt deep shame that I sat there and listened to her, that I had not challenged her and her outdated ideas.
My catalyst moment is when I decided to stop being silenced for my values.
See, this was not the first time I heard an “inappropriate comment” in my career as a scientist. I had been discouraged from going to graduate schools and judged for WANTING a PhD over living a driving passion to advance science. And there was the relentless carving, shaping, and grinding of my skills to elevate my writing to academic standards. I thought that having a PhD gave me power. What I realized in this moment was that I was disconnected from it. I had a limited box of emotional crayons. And I always colored inside the lines. I was a good girl. I was nice. But inside I was ready to explode.
Come back tomorrow to see what happened next. In the mean time please share in the comments below a time when you chose your values over other peoples expectation.
•• DIVINE FEMININE •• How paradoxical, that the same beauty of creation, the same nurturer of wisdom, the same sacred sexuality & the same beholder of the womb has become more of a ‘snack’ & something to look at for society. How odd that the divine feminine beauty of a woman has become so obsolete that the surface area seems more worthy of praise then the inner sanctum of depth. What’s on the outside is a reflection of what’s on the inside. As females we should be confident in our own skin at all times no matter what the situation is. We should nurture ourselves the same way we do for others & realise this beautiful kundalini energy we hold within us all. Our beauty should shine through our eyes, our faces and our smiles, gone are the days when we feel inadequate for not ‘looking the part, being the part, dressing the part or acting the part’. Because the divine feminine is not a character, she is an energy, the energy of creation, the giver of birth, the maker of life. So start treating yourself that way, behaving that way, and knowing that about yourself. There is no reason to feel so small in the pursuit of perfectionism; it really is an illusion. Oh! And it’s also a catch 22, because little did you realise, you were perfect the whole damn time. 🙏🏽♥️✌🏽
