I missed day 7 of Ignite Your Inner Passion challenge yesterday! But I was able to finish it today.. 😊
Last night I ended up at a recovery meeting where we meditated in silence for 30 minutes and then read a beautiful reading & discussed. It was a different format, but it was much needed and a very cool experience.
When I was a kid my parents attended a yoga class at a neighbors house once a week. On a few occasions I would attend, and I vividly remember her gong in the room and the meditation. Her name was Adele, and I remember wondering how her living room could always be empty. When I explored her backyard I found a spiral walking path, or a labyrinth made of stone. This was in San Antonio, Texas, and the sight of a turban wearing yoga instructor was definitely something. Texas is full of surprises, with an abundant homesteading & off the grid presence in the hill country... I have had an itch to go back there recently. I am definitely grateful that I was able to experience people and places that opened my eyes up to the larger world. Now that I am seriously committed to yoga, her memory suddenly sprang back to me. ☇💕💖

What awakening can feel like......
"Infuse your life with action. Don't wait for it to happen. Make it happen. Make your own future. Make your own hope. Make your own love.”
Why won't you ever let me grow?
Not letting our friends and family grow and experience everything they need to in their life to fulfill themselves is the equivalent of taking years off of their life. *
We are all mortals and all given just a short time here to do everything our souls were meant to accomplish. No one else knows exactly what you were meant to do with your life and you'll never know the life destiny of someone else. All we can do is support our loved ones in the best way we know how. Unless they are about to do something that is going to harm themselves or someone else, it is not your business to discourage them. If you don't believe in what they are doing, sure voice it, but then move on. Do not breathe negativity into their plan. *
At one time or another most successful people, creative geniuses, or other geniuses alike were criticized for their zany or outlandish ideas. The difference between them and the next person with a great idea is that these individuals ignore the haters and surround themselves with a tight support group that believe in them.
I'm focusing hard on silencing the negativity all around me. If you're not with me, you're against me; and if you're against me, your voice will not be heard anymore. I have put up blinders to any and all negative opinions. *
Why don't we all just focus on our own selves more and stop worrying about what other people are doing. Because, at the end of the day, when you are lying there on your death bed, are you really going to be worrying about what language or photos some person used in their instagram posts from #2018
? I didn't think so.
I have to do things my own way

We all know the term ‘bottle up your emotions’ but how many of us realise how deeply unhealthy it is not to deal with our emotions as they arise and importantly acknowledge others emotions even if we don’t understand where they are coming from. Suppressed emotions are one of the most dangerous things to our health, not just our psyche. 🤓🙌🏻🧠 rp: erycastanton #freud #psychology101 #emotions #psychology
How often have you felt a tightness in your chest? That feeling almost like you can’t breathe?
This reminds me of the old saying “I just need to get something off my chest”
In yoga today we explored the lung meridian... when we think about what the lungs are protected by it’s physically our ribs (like a shield or armour). Our left lung is actually a little smaller than the right, to make space for the heart.
As you may already know, our bodies are always speaking to us. I invite you today to take 5 mins, close your eyes and feel into your chest, your lungs, your heart. .
If we were to remove the armour protecting your heart, what would you express today? In this moment? .

The last month or so has been rough for me because I’ve been reflecting on the changes I’ve made with myself the last year and a half, the most important being leaving a domestic abuse relationship of almost 4 years.
It’s been done and over with for more than a year and I have the best partner I could ask for now, but the darkness still lingers from the years I spent with a violent sociopath. The 911 calls, broken furniture, pushing, shoving, threats, cheating, etc. still disturb my sleep and keep me from feeling fully secure in my current relationship or in my own body.
But this is the year I decide to stop being angry and letting somebody else’s past actions dictate my every day life. If it weren’t for my experiences, I would have never discovered I wanted to add trauma sensitive yoga to my resume.
If you are in a domestic violence situation, do not stay quiet. Even if people don’t believe you, keep sharing your story until someone does. There are people out there who can help. 🖤
Totally making myself vulnerable to criticism by posting this but it shaped who I am now so fuck with me. •

I love my work! 🙌🏼 I get to choose when I work, where I work and who I want to work with! 🏝👭 Here's a flashback photo of me when we drove to the beach, slept in our car and I was still able to do 'work' whilst away! 😍
If you were able to choose your own hours and work any where in the world, would you want to take a closer look?🤔🌎 I have been so lucky the past few months to call this my work and I'm so thankful I took the leap and said yes to more! 🙌🏼 We have online info webinars on the next 3 nights if anyone would love to come along and find out more about what I do and what this crazy movement is called Babes in Business, message me or comment below!! 🙋🏼💕
Motivation Monday 🔥 - Ft. Steve Jobs [Tap for sound 🔊]
If you want an easy, comfortable, pain free life, don't expect to be a great person that does great things. .
If you were to ask me how my 2018 is going so far, and if I were to answer with absolute honesty, I'd give an overwhelmed smile and a half hearted chuckle as I'd say it's been a growth opportunity. .
If I look at it through eyes of self pity (like I have unfortunately done a couple times), I would see it as a really hard past month. I'd point out all the moments that have been excruciatingly painful, physically and emotionally, and where I've probably been on the verge of depressed. To be honest, it's easy and natural to look at it this way.
BUT! I'm choosing my perspective. I'm choosing facts over feelings. I'm choosing to learn and soak up every second of this growing experience I can.
I want to be a woman of integrity and good character. But I spent a few years of my life not living up to those standards. So now I feel as though I'm being stripped of everything that is hindering me from those goals. And it hurts. It's painful and humbling to have all your flaws placed in front of you. It's like scrubbing dirt of of a wound. You want to cry and scream, "STOP!! STOP!! YOU'RE HURTING ME!!" But you also know if you never get that dirt out, it'll never heal properly. .
So here I am, grinding my teeth saying, "no, it's fine. Keep going." Because I know the broken and bent things in my character and life will heal and I will be better than ever in the end. Bring it on 2018. I'm ready to be a great person who does great thing.
