It's interesting to think that life is temporary and can end at any moment.
When you view life as a bigger picture, you see the value of everything in between.
The value of each moment, each person, and each choice.
When you view life as a bigger picture, you realize that it's the little moments that make the life.

I do believe this 3 day purge I unintentionally uncovered is complete. I recently received my feild work and light language activations and man is that a way more intense healing modality then essentially any other healing modality I've used. As many of you know I've taken my website down temporarily as I regroup and edit my services, starting Nov 1st I will be taking clients for feild work sessions and will only be teaching basic energy healing classes, until then DM me for booking and details💖

Love is not a feeling, it's a contract. A promise to show up to support and cultivate a relationship that is based on trust and compassion.
Society teaches to rely on another to fulfill your heart or complete you in some way. As a result many don't dare live until finding that special someone. You allow your life to be one of lack and dissatisfaction while you wait to really live once you find romantic love.
This reinforces an idea that you are incomplete alone. That romance is the key to happiness and without it you are somehow deficient. This is not only fallacious, it is dangerous in that it breaks down trust in self and the very foundations of self-love. By halting life in anticipation for another you inevitably break the contracts you've made with yourself to accomplish your dreams and goals. You destroy the sense of commitment everyone is born with: the commitment to be your best and carve a unique path in the world.
COMMITMENT: Reestablish the commitment to yourself. Cultivate a relationship of trust by honoring the desires of your heart.
You have been dating yourself. Maybe you've taken a trip. Now it's time to lock your heart into choosing your highest good first and always. It's time to listen to what your new wants, needs, and lacks are and conceive a plan to attain them or satisfy them. Commit to letting go of suffering and manifest the life you've always imagined you'd have.
1) Hold a Commitment Ceremony for yourself in which you promise to serve your Highest Good.
2) Stay on course by asking: "If my significant other allowed me to live this way would I stay in this relationship?"
3) When the answer is no, make the change yourself.
4) Don't look back.
"What is past is prologue"
We all make mistakes, slip up, have our bad days, do things we regret. But you are bigger than your past. You are better than your mistakes. You are capable of discipline, courage, and strength. Don't compromise yourself over nothing and don't sweat it if you do. Just pull up your big girl pants and remind yourself that chapter is already gone. You're already in the next chapter of your life and you don't have to beat yourself up over anything that's over. You deserve to forgive yourself. Easier said than done, though. GOOD NIGHT ❤
There isn't a time limit to grieving. If anyone tells you otherwise it's because they don't know. They don't know your experience as it is yours. And you are unique, just as much as your experience of grief is unique. It's not their fault. People tend to mean well. But there isn't a time length to grief, and there shouldn't be. This is something everyone will experience. The inescapable truth that no one wants to mention. That someone you love will pass away while you are left behind to grieve their loss in utter sadness and what will feel like unimaginable loneliness. And does it really ever end? There's that saying that goes, "It never gets better. It gets different." So take your time. Take as long as you need, and allow yourself to heal. #griefjourney#griefsupport#grief#takeyourtime#healing
I’m taking the week off of Powerlifting to work on some mental and emotional stuff. I’ll be focusing on flexibility and meditating with yoga and some walking. •
I’ll also be doing a juice cleanse this week.
My relationship with food has been on a serious downward spiral and my addiction out of control. Food should be whole and minimally processed, taste good, and feed your body. With food addiction you use highly processed and addictive foods to feed your emotions.
My fav tea ATM. Matcha & turmeric ✌🏽🍵Matcha is a great source of antioxidants & phytochemicals helping to protect our cells from free radicals, detoxify and boost metabolism (to name a few benefits). It gives a subtle caffeine hit too. Turmeric fights inflammation, helps support the immune system, aids in wound healing and stiff joints (again just to name a few benefits). And no joke, it helped ease my migraine in the weekend 🙌🏾🙌🏾 All I do is put a teaspoon of each powder in a mug of hot water & give it a good stir. The taste & smell can take a bit to get used to as it's a grassy, earthy taste. But it grows on you😊Give it a try! 👏🏽#medicineinacup
Second time trying EMDR therapy we got somewhere. It seems like it’s going to be a very powerful method of healing and I am so excited! Scared, but excited! The idea of having to face every trauma again head-on, having to look at everything and feel all the feelings can be overwhelming. But now having experienced feeling SO GOOD afterward I’m much less apprehensive. I seriously left therapy just elated, feeling so much love in my heart, crying tears of joy. The therapy really brought home (in the deepest way I’ve ever felt in my life) the realization that it wasn’t my fault. That I didn’t do anything wrong. Being able to be there and support that younger version of myself in the way she needed at the time of the trauma was so powerful. I’ve done some of that in therapy before and it’s been very helpful but this was different and stronger. It was sad and hard, but then afterward it was so beautiful. It feels like a weight lifted, to know really and truly in my actual body (not just my brain) that it wasn’t my fault and I didn’t do anything to deserve it. This is powerful healing and I’m so grateful. It feels like it’s going to change my life in so many meaningful, tangible ways. It feels like being set free. Like coming out of a dark cave into the light. I’m so thankful. •

"...because exercise, a good diet, and a regular massage are just too much trouble." Sound familiar? 🤦🏻♂️
I actually laughed when I saw this, because it's too true. We live in a society that is all about instant gratification; the miracle cure, the fad diet, a wrap that disappears your fat, a pill for this and a pill for that. Most people have no idea how effective a massage or bodywork can be for SO many ailments & goals. .
I am NOT saying you don't need meds. I am NOT saying that a massage can cure your everything. That would be fucking stupid. But, it can do a whole lot more than you give it credit for... and without the side-effects 🤷🏻♂️
You are reflexively attracted to people who match your level of emotional development. If you're bitching about your spouse or lover, you'd better take a deeper look at yourself ~ Shari Schreiber⠀
Some harsh truth, from a clinician whose work I highly respect & admire! ⠀

I am clearing out sh*t I didn't even know needed clearing out and even though it's hard I have to do it and I love the fact that I'm coming through shining even more brighter - Ain't nothing wrong with that.
Having and being are considered separate in the world of form, yet in truth, they are the same. When you have something, it is because you are it. For example, if you want peace, you must be peace. If you want joy, you be joy. If you want success, be success. What you want to have, you must be. This is how things work.
Thus, if you want love, yet continue to cherish hate in your heart, you will not have it. So, remove all the blockages to what it is you want to be, to allow it to pour forth from within. You will not get want you want by constant reaching out to steal from someone else. You get what it is you want, by projecting out from within. So, if you truly do want love, then be love. It is that simple.
So very worth it. There is such joy and healing in the journey. On our ninth day on the Annapurna Circuit, my brother and I made it to the through Thorong La Pass, one of the highest mountain passes in the world. We did it in honor and memory of our mom. 💙 A day prior, we had met a man named John. He told us he was 58 years old, and that this was his first trek ever but he was determined to finish the Circuit. He gave himself four weeks to do it, and pushed himself above and beyond his comfort zone. When I asked him what inspired him to do the Annapurna Circuit, he said that he first learned of it 17 years ago while on a trip with his wife in Thailand. It was their dream to go. I looked at John, solo in the mountains and knew maybe he had something somber to tell us. He did. He had lost his wife to cancer three years ago, and he was doing this for both of them. My brother and I shared a knowing acknowledgement as we mentioned we had lost both our parents, most recently our mom to cancer. Often on these long arduous journeys you meet souls experiencing similar challenges, walking on the path to healing. John from Toronto, bro and I are thinking of you and your wife. May your love carry you over the mountain pass. ❤
