Yesterday I felt lonely for no apparent reason. Perhaps is was coming down off of a great weekend away at @yotmfestival
Perhaps it was just a case of the Mondays. Perhaps I had some pent up physical energy stuck in a loop that needed to get out. Either way, I started telling myself these BS stories like: “Nobody cares about me. Nobody understands me. Nobody feels this way. I’m such a weirdo.” Etc... So I decided to share about this on my stories and I posted a poll to ask if other people ever feel lonely for no reason, even if their spouse and kids are around. And you know what? 100% of people responded YES! 100 percent!!!! Wow. I was floored. What a beautiful reminder that we are never alone. Despite what our monkey mind (aka ego) tells us. We are all so much more alike than we realize and we are all in this together. Uncomfortable emotions are just part of the human experience and we just have to ride the wave until the waters calm again. Thank for reminding me I am not alone. And neither are you. We are all just spiritual beings having a human experience. And sometimes that’s a difficult paradox to live in. And that’s okay. We are in it together.
Er du kjent med prinsippet om takknemlighet? Jeg mener ikke bare det filosofiske og spirituelle, eller kraftfulle energimessige..... men også de biokjemiske fysiologiske endringene som skjer i kroppen og dermed i hele vår totale helsetilstand?
Å øve på takknemlighet, eller å være i en takknemlighets tilstand kan gi mer liv til cellene våre og omkode vårt DNA og våre genetisk nedarvede mønster mer enn noe annet. Cellene våre tilpasser seg det miljøet de befinner seg i. I vårt blodplasma svever det rundt 50 trillioner celler som til enhver tid leser av ALLE ultramikroskopiske biokjemiske endringer eller tilstander i kroppen vår. Der regjerer alle hormoner og nerveimpulser som kommer av de biokjemiske prosesser tankene våre setter igang. Og hjernen omkoder alle signaler fra kroppen og videre til å iverksette handling (Feks å sende ut flere eller færre av disse signalene vi kaller følelser) Å øve på takknemlighet kan for eksempel gi oss følelsen av velvære, av å være glad og fornøyd. Følelsen av trygghet og selvtillit. Alle biokjemiske prosesser, også i hjernen, forholder seg til denne tilstanden og skaper MER av det som gjør oss friske og lykkelige.
Du kan velge å nerde deg inn i temaet, eller bare prøve, øve og observere hva som skjer.
Jeg øver nå! Hver dag og så ofte som jeg kommer på det. Øver til det blir en vane, et automatisk mønster og så blir en del av den jeg ER. For jeg heier på cellene mine og gjør det jeg kan for å skape godt miljø for vekst og utvikling. For meg selv og dermed også alle andre.
Lyst å prøve? Er du med?

We’re NOT using credit to buy the things we want anymore. We’re using credit to INVEST & letting our investments pay for the things we want!!!!!
Trust comes on stages. It happens slowly you can't force it.
✨ It begins shaky, there will be times you trust and once doubt comes in trust flees. ✨ Then you get to the point where you acknowledge the fears behind the doubt and once you've conquered them, you begin to build your trust again.
✨At some point you move into a space of deep knowing. Not because of a change that took place outside of you but because of the change that happened WITHIN YOU.
You are able to stay in this beautiful place of knowing once you understand and accept that you are 🔌. The force guiding manifestation is within you and it always has been. And you know something else....what you want to manifest becomes clearer. You value your peace over EVERYTHING. You value the relationship with God/Source over EVERYTHING.
You move from pain to peace. Because waiting and being unsure is nothing but perpetual pain. But trust, knowing deeply, that it is well with my soul and nothing outside of that matters is perfect peace.

Well hello there, happy Tuesday! I’ve been a smidgen quiet, I know, there’s been s few things happening. ! It’s ok, it’s about how you frame it! We’ve been talking, Planning and dreaming of having a family in Spain for years and as parts of this come closer other bits feel further away. But That’s OK. The past few weeks I haven’t been my most chipper, I don’t need lots of sympathy my own team of cheerleaders have been marvellous and I can’t ask for more than that. Yesterday we gave notice on our gorgeous cottage, I will be sad to leave, this has been my longest home since the cottage in the picture, where I grew up. But as one bit ends and closes it makes space for new adventures and direction and also an opportunity to clear out the studio. ! Here’s the last shot of my window frame mood board. The next time this will be used, is in a studio In Spain. Fear not, we’re not off just yet, we’ll keep you posted. #havefaith #itallworksoutintheend #chipper #goingboldlyinthedirectionofmydreams #goboldly #thankful #gratitude #devoncottage #devonlife #cottagestyle #countrylivingforever
Say a holy yes! Yes to this moment, this day, this point in history.
Observe life unfurling around you. Every moment there’s something to discover. Even the most mundane occurrences.
Soften your gaze. Open your mind. Feel through your heart. As you take in this moment... what draws your attention?
Write it down. Speak it out loud. Take a picture. Savor the feeling. Express gratitude. You’re experiencing life. Isn’t it beautiful?
What is prayer? What is Meditation? What is asking? Talking? Listening? Pondering? Oberving?
I always have a prayer of gratitude in my heart, whether I am talking or listening to my plants...Or when talking to all the other beings on Mother Earth...An old and wise shaman once said:” The story and the storyteller are one and the same. The observer and that what is being observed are the same! Tonanzin”, he said to me “ be aware of whom you are, in your thoughts, in your heart, in your gut and in all around you. Embrace all, because you are everything.. embrace everything that is also nothing! Dance Life, Walk in Gratitude and Move in Awareness !”
Lastly he said: “ and always be amazed, in awe... because then you are in the Magic of Now!”

One day Ato Mekonnen had a thought of bringing together a group of cyclist that were willing to accomplish something epic like riding 100 miles with over 4k elevation.
That thought then became a vision. On this day his vision was brought to fruition. All the warriors showed up ready for battle. 12 BEASTS and 1 BEAUTY. However we did not anticipate having to battle 100° temps with a 110° index.
In my 3 years of cycling this ride was the most challenging for me by far. I felt great, I was well prepared, hydrated and mentally focused, and most importantly my squad was PHENOMENAL.
However I couldn't beat the heat rising from the asphalt and beating down on me from up above.
Nonetheless the train started getting shorter, and shorter. I jumped off the ROYALTY train at the 50 mile mark with almost 2k elevation as the rest of my warrior brothers pressed on.
This ride is now on my hit list to go back and CONQUER on a fall early winter day.💪🏿
And this is what I do to celebrate my birthday... a magical hike in this enchanted fairy tale forest.
Stop worrying about what others thing about you. It’s hard, but hear me out. Meowt. (Sorry I had to 😸)
You were created to be so uniquely YOU. No one else.
Let go of the worry of what others may be thinking and their judgment. That’s on THEM, not you.
Get in touch with yourself. Find what makes your soul feel at peace. Figure out what sparks so much joy in your heart that you can’t contain it.
Fall in love with your flaws. Yeppp we all have them! Embrace your awkward weirdness. It’s way more fun 😉
Be authentic and honest.
I promise you that life is more fulfilling when you simply embrace your purpose.
Lead a purposeful life and just see where it takes you. 💛
It may be an uncomfortable journey, but my friend, it’s so worth it!
