It's amazing how much a person grows when they are in the right environment. When they are nurtured, supported, encouraged, loved. when they allow themselves the freedom and space to bloom. Being in a very toxic, stifling situation for a long time and as much as I tried to grow I never felt I could reach my full potential. Stepping into a new career, finishing up school, and working on my fitness are all goals that I had set, and I'm almost complete with two of them, fitness will always be on going. Celebrating my 26th birthday next week, I want to make the necessary changes to bloom in all aspects of my life. Also I'm gonna start writing that book, about a foster kid bouncing from house to house hoping a family would love them enough only to get sent back until getting adopted at the age of 7. Dealing with ups and downs during those years, getting themselves to college, only to allow their early 20's to be robbed dealing with the wrong folks. To being a survivor setting the world on fire with their truth!
I found that was where my greatest power and potential resided all along was within myself and God. I'm a work in progress! ✨💜💗🙏🏾

Amalgam update, it's been just 4 short days since the removal. I thought it was fascinating that after day 2 I felt 50% better. Day 4 I'm back on the mat and this particular pose Wheel or Urdhva Dhanurasana was impossible for me to do since December since the pain, toxicity and inflammation was concentrated in my kidneys and for my pranic healers out there my Meng Mein chakra was constantly congested (this is the chakra that controls the kidneys) so even a baby backbend or chatarunga was off limits for me. Today since the inflammation and pain has receded I was comfortably able to get back into the back bending poses my body was so missing. 🤸🏽♀️ Still lots of room to grow in this pose but it's the first time I've been in it without pain in 6 months! Im psyched! I was a little surprised at how quickly I would feel results of the amalgam removal so I asked my angels and guides how this was possible. Their response to me was this "every time you ate food the toxicity and poison was contaminating your food which is why now that they are gone the relief is immediate". Fascinating. Trust your body everybody, only it and you know what it truly needs. The best thing to master in this lifetime is the ability to get quiet and listen and feel your body so it can provide you with the answers you seek. Im sorry but no doctor, Guru, self-help workshop or book can give that to you. You have the ultimate power and intuition over your body and life. ❤️ #amalgamremoval#yoga#wheelpose#workinprogress#healingjourney
Challenging fears and triumphing is a such great rush! Needles make me nervous because blood makes me faint. I'm not even kidding. Back in February I had a bad wipeout while skiing that threw my entire back into spasm. I've been a dancer all my life, able to do a back bend and the splits no problem. But suddenly I could bend over to put my socks on. Sitting, standing, sleeping, moving hurt like the dickens. Stubborn survivor that I am however, I didn't seek professional treatment till last week. I know, very immature of me. A part of me just wanted to prove my self sufficiency and ability to heal myself. Of course I am always aware in the back of my mind that there is great strength and efficiency is asking for help, especially from those to make it their duty to heal others. I have huge gratitude for the body support given to me by Pat Trimble, the wonderful woman who massaged the stress out of my muscles💪🏼, vanquished my nervousness about acupuncture and all around assured me that I will make a full recovery.

2,500 years ago Siddhartha Gautama, the human we commonly refer to as Buddha, sat under a tree and vowed to stay there sitting for as long as was necessary to reach enlightenment...
even if it meant he wouldn't arrive until he was nothing but a pile of bones.🌳
He put aside Theory and sat with his Body: what does unattachment feel like in the body, presence in the body, each moment arising and passing as experienced by the body. 🌬️
2,500 years later Vipassana, this form of meditation Buddha developed in its purest form, is resurging and spreading thanks to teachers like S.N. Goenka.🙏
Cuz the truth is... the suffering of our world is a magnified result of the storms we carry without refuge within ourselves.🌪️ And the truth is... as long as we keep hurting ourselves we will keep hurting others.🌀
Last week I meditated for 110 hours over the course of a 10 day Vipassana in the countryside of Cambodia. At a place that asked for nothing in return but that I wake up at 4AM every day ready to work and spend time with myself in complete silence.🍯
Spiritual freedom takes muscle and liberation takes work. But once you've tasted the honey on the other side there's no going back.⚡
What is unconditional love? Wishing with every atom that all humans may experience true happiness, real peace, deep love.🌻
If you are seeking, searching, hurting, healing, growing, transforming and are looking for where to go.... our paths are all different but 10 days might be the start of something.🥚
In true alliance with Buddhist principles, Vipassana centers are all over the world and accessible to all. Completely donation based, food + room + board provided. You just have to show up ready to work your ass off.❤️

Everyone has those days where you really just don't feel like moving. Maybe you're feeling tired or sore but you still go back and forth in your mind on how you can justify skipping the workout.
What's there to justify?
There's no factual rules that say you must exercise X amount of times a week in order to be healthier, or fitter, or to feel good about yourself.
Sure the post workout adrenaline will make you good, but what about all that negative self talk that lead up to the decision to exercise?
Good self care isn't about how many times you exercise per week it's about being compassionate with yourself, your decisions, and your actions. Self care is about trusting your body to tell you what it needs and NOT your mind.
Hurt people hurt people. That is why some comments people make I don't react in a negative way. I know it is just their pain speaking. Whole people speak words that heal.Words that encourage!
