Throwback to dancing on the beach in Santa Teresa on the day I graduated from YTT with @yogaacademyinternational. The comments and feedback I received on my post yesterday made me realise how important it is to support each other by being truthful and honest. It made me realise how social media has the power to be harmful and prevent someone from feeling capable of sharing their yoga journey, but also it is can be so amazing to find so many likeminded individuals that are also going through similar feelings and experiences. Despite my need to step back a little on my class schedule, yoga is so much a part of me and has been a huge element of my healing journey. And by healing I don't mean a physical ailment... although it has helped with many of those too. I mean the healing of my inner self. The healing of my confidence, my self worth, my energy, my strength. The healing of my joy, my emotional wellbeing, my happiness. It's taught me more about myself than any other practice... and I feel so grateful to be able to share that with others. The calling is still very strong. I have some big dreams... BIG DREAMS!!! But in order to keep those dreams alive i have to nourish the spark within me, to protect the fire in my belly so it doesn't burn out. All in good time. Patience. Gentleness. Trust. I feel very much that replenishment is needed across the board right now as we are being prepared for big shifts and transformations... we are change makers and this is us setting strong foundations, which has to start with ourselves. Do you feel it too?
Good Day Lovers & Friends 💜🔮|This morning I wanted to remind You that YOU can Re-knit the Fabric of your mind & being at any time you wish. Please know that whatever no longer serves you can be unravelled. Lets remove the kinks that hold us back from our full potential. Let's rewrite our beliefs, LETTING GO of those limiting ones. Let us WEAVE MAGIC into our lives, love into our hearts & light into our lives. YOU have the power to do this. YOU are the CREATOR, who is also CREATING & being CREATED. This is your narrative. Knit the hell OUT of your life & weave your fabric into NIRVANA. I hope you begin to realise your power & move forward, lifting yourself into the life your deepest truest self desires. Love & Light 🌟(beautiful illustration found on pintrest)
Aaand finished! I've spend so many hours making them from a scratch! Three of these rings feature dichroic glass. All of them are adjustable, US sizes 6-10🔮click the link in bio if you'd like to own one!
The sacred work of creating a new paradigm has become an “industry” where not all practices are transparent and for the highest good of all.
We need you. In your embodied divine human form. Full of love, compassion and wisdom. We need your fully embodied light, your vision, and your courage to embrace your shadows.
Many are responding yes to the call of the Soul to rise and contribute. Yet methods, old dogmas and disciplines tend to place us back in boxes, making us small, and more of the same.
The truth is that this mentorship is about all of us.
We go deep, we rise. We illuminate this world together. .

❤️My heart is full of empathy & love for all the #metoo women, and for the men who have experienced sexual trauma. We are human beings and it is my belief that when things get shattered beyond comprehension, we inspire each other that everything will be okay. Healing is possible and is happening through this beautiful & painful movement and through the collective hearts & consciousness that make us ONE. We feel the wounds of all beings and this is what bonds us, united as one healing soul❤️ I am wholeheartedly healing with all of you, near & far❤️🌏
Walking away from this one for a while- my biggest problem when I paint is knowing when a painting is "done". I've messed up so many paintings because I kept going when I should have stopped. This is not what I envisioned when I started this painting but maybe it's exactly what it is supposed to be..... "Eye of the Storm" #decisionsdecisions#artistproblems#makeartnotwar
My relationship with yoga has changed so dramatically since being a teacher. It was something I wasn't prepared for fully... I became a teacher because I wanted to deepen my knowledge and share this amazing way of life with others. But if I'm totally honest with you, being a teacher can sometimes be overwhelming, and it can trigger so much self doubt and make you question your self worth. And sometimes that is so exhausting that it makes you question whether you are cut out for the work. Whether you can really keep putting yourself through the discomfort of uncertainty and putting yourself out there... sometimes it feels like you are putting your heart and soul on the firing line... waiting for someone to catch you out or tell you you aren't good enough. My own physical practice hasn't evolved as I feel like it 'should'... I still can't do crazy arm balances or pop up into a headstand in the middle of a field. My ego feels dented at times and the part of me that likes certainty and stability finds it hard to juggle the emotions. But then I remember why I began this journey and it comes back to inner strength, acceptance and connection. And that's nothing to do with making shapes. I remember that feeling I felt when I started to fully breathe again. When I learned to let my body be held by the ground and surrender all tension for the first time in years. The relief my body feels when I come to the mat... it is like coming home over and over again. So despite the fears and wobbles I am in it for the long haul with yoga as a way of life. I'm finding my way again and I trust the path as it's unraveling. But slowly does it. I'm doing this for myself right now... this practice is mine first and foremost and without reclaiming it for me then I cannot share it with others. It's not selfish, it's about being self FULL (as @kateisgreatyeh would say). Then... and only then... can I be the teacher I want to be. ❤️
Caught up in flow #vinyasart ♥︎

The Tangerine Crystal Bat is the only currently available of it's kind!
Bats have long been associated with deity, supernatural forces and the occult. Bats have often symbolized both good and evil, life and death.
As an animal totem, bats represent transition and rebirth. Facing the darkness of your uncertainties can progress you to find light in your new beginnings.
I'm working on two Crystal Bats by custom order, so please feel free to message me if you'd like a particular stone paired with this design!
What if you treated every day like your birthday? 🎁
What if you woke up EVERY DAY and asked yourself what would make this day special?
Not what do those around me need or what am I supposed to do, but what do I WANT to do.
What would make me happy?
What if you didn't focus on the obligations and instead focused on your happiness first?
How much would your life change in a week??

One of my favourite meditations we did at the weekend on my @britishschoolofmeditation training course was a visualisation on a beach. Watching the waves roll in and roll out, just as we watch the breath flow in and flow out. Pausing as the wave suspends on the beach before melting away and learning to trust that the next wave and breath will always come. As someone who has struggled with anxiety and the breath, at first this was challenging but it really helped me trust myself and my body more and I soon found an inner stillness that felt utterly blissful. If you feel a little uptight today, or are finding it hard to trust, simply watch these waves flow in and flow out, remembering and trusting that the next step will come and you don't have to force it. You can come back to this place any time you need. 🌊😊😘

I've been trying to learn SO much about gemology lately, I've just been absorbing knowledge like crazy you guys 👻 I think it is so cool that a lot of the jewelry we wear has come in a rougher form, (just a rock basically) but that once it is unearthed and sometimes cut+polished it makes the most breathtaking wearable art ❤︎ Wearing something on my body that comes from the earth is so weirdly grounding... Maybe it's the weight on my finger(s)... I don't know, but either way it soothes me. Turquoise, Labradorite, and Moonstone, especially, are all stones that give me a renewed energy and positivity when I wear them. I know a lot of people that would laugh at that sentiment, but I also know there are just as many of you out there that feel the healing energy and grounding that crystals & gemstones provide ☮︎ // UPDATE: Thumb & Ring Finger are the only rings still available for purchase
If you get mood swings, need to get rid of an ex, have trouble focusing, or you're experiencing a general "I need to get my shit together" attitude, it's time to open and activate your root chakra! 😆🖤❤️✨
I wrote about the best crystals to use for healing your root, visit my link in bio to read!
Unparalleled insight is waiting for you to allow it in…
Don’t quote empty mantras to yourself. Don’t compare your ego to others. Don’t just look for the bright side… You ARE the bright side.
Honestly, the truth is you are a creative force to be reckoned with.
What an incredible three days I've had lead by the amazing Mary from @britishschoolofmeditation and partnered with my new friend @karma_studios. I knew meditation was something I wanted to learn more about teaching right from the moment I experienced my first opportunity to guide a group during my YTT last year... and after now learning from a scientific point of view, as well as feeling it from a spiritual and physiological point of view... I just can't see how I can move forward now without it playing a big part in my life. Let the meditation adventures begin!

This dark red beauty is still available!
The triple moon holds beautiful symbolic meaning!
🌒The first crescent represents the waxing phase of the moon -- new beginnings, new life, and rejuvenation, youth, excitement and expansion!
🌕The center circle is symbolic of the full moon, the time when magic is at its most potent and powerful. Representing fulfillment, compassion, giving, caring, protection and power!
🌘The last crescent represents the waning moon -- a time to do banishing magic! Symbolizing maturity, wisdom, understanding, completion, death and rebirth!
Taking my magic to the beach this morning. Third time the movement card has come up for me over the past two days and to me it symbolises both a physical need to move more and also the signal that things are shifting and moving and that despite the many self doubts that always come up when transition is occurring (which by the way... is pretty much constant!) that growth is very much an amazing thing. It seems timely with all the meditation I've been doing this weekend, which feels like it's moving energy around my body using the breath and stillness. Releasing stuckness and stagnancy, and making space for new adventures. What do you feel when you see these cards? Is self doubt preventing you from moving? ❤️don't forget you can get a detailed email weekly intuitive business reading from me every Monday to help you move forwards in your life's work, by signing up to the top link in my bio! 😘These are the @spirit.speak Vessel Oracle cards bought from @crystalmuse_
