I used to tell myself that I didn't experience stress. I was proud that I had the ability to let things roll off my back and not dwell on them. Embodiment has come to help me realize that was never my truth. I've always experienced stress and it's been stored in my body. I just wasn't aware of it. Causing damage since 1985!
This month has been a big shift for me. Moving, more responsibilities at Shomota, still trying to launch Divine Flow, being shaken down to the core of my identity, feelings of loneliness and searching for new rhythms to help me be sustainable. It's been a lot and my body is giving me signs that it is stressed out!
1. My eye chalazion is back! I got my first one right before I moved back to India (not stressful, right?!) and it took me nearly 3 months to get rid of it. I hope it doesn't take that long this time, kinda getting sick of my glasses. If you have any natural remedies sent them my way!
2. My cycle is all over the place. I'm day 26 and still haven't been able to confirm ovulation. Not surprising. Did you know that when you are stressed your body says it's not safe to reproduce so it stops you from ovulating?
3. I've gotten heartburn 3 times in the past two weeks and I haven't had it since high school when I was taking a strong antibiotic.
My body knows it is not safe. It's a stressful world out there and I'm searching for ways to process and sift through it all. Yoga and cooking have been helping, but I long for a forest to run through!
What signs does your body give you when you are stressed?

Something to remember each and everyday. Our thoughts and actions define us, not others.
Why are we really judging? Why do we feel the need to blurt our judgment to others about someone else? Are we doing what we were called to do, loving others.
We may not be perfect each and everyday but we can strive to be kinder, more loving and less judgmental each day.
Mother wound - who doesnt have it!
The diverse forms it takes is unique to each and every one of us.
I am a coach and a healer and I am working on my mother wound.
Oh, it’s not the first time, I did so much healing on painful childhood experiences involving mother.
This is a deeper layer that became obvious from a repetitive pattern with my ex-partner.
I had to dig deep to find that I still had deep fear of physical aggression from my mother.
She lives half the way around the planet and we are not in contact, yet that fear surfaced up and brought with it terror as well as shame for having this fear, as an adult, a grown woman. *** And then compassion came in as I felt deep waves of sadness of my inner child about that consistent hyper-vigilance, that drained so much of my energy and took so much of my power to sustain.
And I am in the middle of it, working with a healer and a mystic, as well as a therapist.
It’s that big that I need 2 people supporting me.
I fall into their arms.
And counter-intuitively as it seems, I learn incredible insight about the inherent worth of human beings, of women like my mother.
I understand that as a narcissist she actually embodies the unaware shadow side of ALL womanhood, of femininity, that have been repressed for millennia – the anger, the guilt, the sadness, the aggression, the neediness, the generational pain that has been suppressed for ages and is still waiting to be seen, heard, validated and healed.
The Unacknowledged Female Pain Body. *** These “evil” women, like my mother, who are not nurturing, who are manipulative and aggressive, who are selfish and careless and always put themselves first (although not in the most healthy or aware way) - these women hold and express what all other women reject and deny.
In this way these “evil” women are providing a service to humanity, especially to women, reminding them to start owning their full selves - light and dark, and to become aware and own their full power with all its energetic self-expressions.
Yes, this insight is so new and so breakthrough that it takes a while to accept and process.
As I posted a few days ago... I've been working extra hard this month to honor myself by taking extra time to care for my mind and body. I wasn't looking for anything new, but this sort of landed before me and I knew it was something I wanted to be a part of. #intuitivedecision
A new venture is always exciting! Here's mine. Clean living, self care, home care and #supplements
for everyone. #toxinfree #sharingiscaring
Even Zsa Zsa wants to know what I'm up to. 😹🤦 Self care is important to me and I wanted to try something that was getting real results as I've become uncomfortably "fluffy" this year. 🤪 I've been taking these #vegan
weight loss and #collagen
(collagen not vegan) supplements for only 4 days and I can already see and feel a difference! #forreal
Take the #m3pledge
and ditch the yo-yo diet plan. I'll be posting my progress so stay tuned. 💪💙💚🥗 #mōdere #modere #newbeginnings #selfcare #positivity #healthylifestyle #healthyeating #summerslimdown
Today’s Energy• You are currently weighing your options,or maybe trying to see two sides to a situation. Of course there is always 2 sides even 3 depending upon your perspective,but try your best to say balanced. Observe your reactions surrounding this situation and try not to respond out of Ego or confusion.
It’s so important to take time out and connect with nature. We forget we come from nature too.
Chats with Inspired Mummies 💞 Bec Davis and her crew sold up to travel Australia before settling, for now, on the Sunny Coast! Bec worked with a government organisation before her handsome 3rd boy arrived, starting with us just days before his arrival. She has the biggest heart and with Brett by her side they are giving their boys, and soon to be baby 4, a life filled with adventures! Working in the corporate world left Bec filling unfulfilled and over the juggle. So before her maternity leave was up she created another security in her business to retire herself!! Head to my FB page to watch full story 💞✌🏻
Thanks to my beautiful Mumma (@fionaamazing072
) for taking me out to go and get our eyelashes and eyebrows done together. Loved the quality time together!
Getting my eyebrows done always makes me feel good and is a great little act of self care. In today’s busy society it’s so easy to forget to take care of yourself. But it’s so important for you to make the time to do something that you enjoy and makes you feel good. .
If you’re reading this try to think of something that you enjoy and find the time to go and do it. It doesn’t have to be something grand to make a world of difference and relieve some stress.

They may not be super defined but they are certainly growing! HELLO BICEPS!
These little puppies are a year in the making! I have consistently worked on improving my food intake and maintaining a workout routine and I am finally at a point where I have decreased my desire for doritos, pizza, nachos, & fries and have increased my desire for healthier items!!
I say all that to say...TAKE BABY STEPS! Change one thing at a time and celebrate EVERY SINGLE VICTORY!!! If living happily is about enjoying the journey then enjoy each and every journey, even fitness and health journeys. Meet yourself where you are, appreciate exactly who you are and where you are EVEN if it's not quite where you want to be! I promise it makes change so much easier! It's kinda like that quote, if you can't love me at my worst, then you can't have my best!?!?!...LOVE YOU NOW SO THAT YOU CAN LOVE YOU AT YOUR BEST!!!

Choose wisely 🌙 - I learnt the hard way.. the doors I opened were the doors that dragged me down, chewed me up and spat me out. I was immature and uneducated. Now the doors I open are filled with unexpected happiness and beauty from the world 🌍 Life is not an easy path to take, be carful witch door you open ... 🥀 - Anonymous ✨
Three Things I Never Skimp On:
1) My Handbags.
2) My Skincare.
3) The Chocolate Chips in my Cookies.
What are your 3? 👇
Copies always underperform the original, just sayin’. Always be a first rate version of you not a second rate version of someone else. #beyou #jeezyseason #thoughtoftheday
Time spent amongst nature is never wasted time 🌱
In all ways, this is my goal and my wish for you...when we venture into new territory nothing is more important than the love and support of others, the feeling that they are rooting for your success, and see things in you that you may or may not see in yourself. It's a true blessing to connect with people who understand this ❤️ Do you have people like that in your life?
No joke, when you start healing and begin letting go of shit that is no longer serving you, you start tapping into the magic within and around you.Trust me when I say that once you get a dose there is no fucking stopping.🖤🕉
