Our time @mahagedararetreat gave us some much-needed time to reflect on our journey together, especially the last year. We knew that we had allowed ourselves to get way out of balance. We were working way too much, and not spending time focusing on one another in our relationship. Most of all, we were not prioritizing our physical health, especially eating the proper foods to nourish our bodies, and making time to cultivate strength and flexibility in our physical bodies. #hosted
Every Ayurvedic doctor and healer we met said the same thing, basically, not to mince words, 'you two are fat, old, and off balance' 😂😂
One of the things that was reinforced during our stay is the importance of architecting your lifestyle to ensure your needs are met. We spent time setting intentions for our future, literally burning away our negative and self-defeating beliefs in a Buddhist ceremony. We then set five affirmations to say to ourselves daily, with conviction, so that we can manifest them in our lives. The one both Ed and I had on our list was to find and live joy in some way, everyday.
What would you like to manifest (or begin manifesting) in your life in 2018?

Over the last few days I have really been loving journaling in my new favorite little pocketbook, a daily reminder that jotting down our happy thoughts 💭can bring sunshine to even the toughest days & remind of us what to be grateful for when we're caught in the shuffle of the day to day. This morning, I took the time to enjoy one of my new favorite #hottonic blends I whipped up with @moondeli bliss booster & energy tonics, @pressedjuicery golden milk, and @vitalproteins collagen peptides while journaling and enjoying the sunshine through my window seat. I gotta' say, the sun makes me happy, but the brightest light comes from each and every one of you and the joy you bring to me every day. Happy Wednesday, rockstars! 💗Think happy thoughts 🌸
▫️What's in it: 1 tsp. @moondeli bliss booster & 1 tsp. @moondeli energy tonic, 1 tbsp. @vitalproteins collagen peptides, 1/2 tsp. fresh turmeric root, cup @pressedjuicery golden milk (heated over medium heat until warm, not boiling), and 1/2 tsp. honey. *Blend all ingredients until well-combined. ✨
happy happy monday 🙂
this week’s intentions: ••stay positive ••be content where i currently am ••keep smiling ••eat all the good food & nutrients to get me through another week (exhibit A ☝🏼) ••bed of spinach + @betterbeanco cuban beans + fried @vitalfarms egg + turkey burger (via @rachaelsgoodeats) + roasted sweet potato + bell pepper + tomatoes + avocado + @brightfreshmicrogreens micro cilantro, rainbow mix & golden pea shoots + cashew dip (via @twist_of_lemons)
8 days until Winter Solstice ☀️The festival of REBIRTHING.
The Solstice energy is one of pause, a chance to stop and express our hopes and our intentions. The restraints of Winter have created a slowing and conserving of energy. Winter is a time to focus and reflect. It brings hardships of cold and shortness of daylight. The Winter Solstice is an opportunity to be sociable and generous; a time to celebrate each other, for by working together and sharing at this time, we can survive all together. This is the time to pause, to perceive the seeds of our future growth, to gather intent, and make out resolutions for the coming months.( New Year resolutions being a modern leftover of this ancient Solstice custom) From then on the days will lengthen and the warmth will come again. It represents the quite surviving of the life force at the darkest time of year. ~ Glennie Kindred.
☀️ I’m very much looking forward to sharing a sacred ritual ceremony with my favourite #witch#sister @mamamooncandles at Stonehenge this Winter Solstice and setting our intentions for the year ahead. . Let there be #light
If we all had the same intention for 2018....
The intention to work all together on a more peacefull world... How beautifull would the world be then... 😊❤
Do you make intentions for next year or you rather choose to go with the flow?
I love to go with the flow but if I had to make intentions I would definitley go for creating more happiness, more health, more peace, more love. 💞
2017 was a year I’d much rather forget, it tested me and it felt like the end of the world at times, it shook me and as much as it made me want to scream ‘what the fuckn fuck bro!’ Over and over. It WAS the best thing in the universe for me! It’s been tough but it’s been nescessary. Past wounds were brought back to the present to be re-assessed and I’m so thankful for that. I’m excited to shed and die and come back even stronger. We are constantly growing, evolving, learning, re-wiring ...... we are never going to be perfect and sometimes, things, situations, people will shake you to bring the darkness to light. I’m blessed for the past year for the awareness to see my flaws, my faults, and my wounds because without it I wouldn’t have been able to see where to improve myself. Being in denial is futile and blaming others gets us nowhere other than keeping us in a victim state. Rise above whatever dims your light. But most importantly reach out to others when you need a lift or feel lonely, we’re all in this together, and need each others love, guidance and support thanks to everyone that’s been there for me this year, y’all know who you are ❤️ #feelingthelove#2018comeatme#makenextyearyourbitch#resolutions#goals#bethankful#begrateful#beblessedforallthatis#shineyourlight#healing#growingstrong#loveyourselffirst ❤️ #selflove#reflection#intentions#manifestthebest#positivity
✨NEW BLOG- A LETTER TO THE GIRL I USED TO BE 🌺🌺🌺🌺🌺🌺🌺🌺✨✨✨ Darling girl,
There is not enough love I can gift to you. I see you, that girl, the old me and your light was out for so long that it felt normal. You poured so much into other people who never gave anything back. You operated on empty and still had the kindest and most forgiving heart.
Thank you for remaining so gentle. Thank you for always seeing the best in humans. That saved us. That heart of yours. It kept us believing in love and the goodness that is all around.
When my mind shows me all the times you felt broken, I want to sit with you, all those years ago and hold you. You are so strong. I’m still not sure how we got through that chapter darling but we did.
Your future self was whispering all the greatness that was in store for you. You kept going and I need to thank you for that.
One day I will share our story and honour you for your hard work and strength. That’s my gift to you. To never forget you. The broken girl walking with God trusting that brighter days would arrive.
I remember your shame. You carried that for so long. I, your future self, didn’t want to carry it anymore so I worked hard to heal from the shame.
So much has changed. Life looks a lot different now. There is peace, freedom and happiness. The 3 things you always prayed for. CLICK LINK IN BIO TO CONTINUE...
May your day be filled with happiness and hygge 🙏✨

Mercury is definitely in RETROGRADE. 🙄This isn't the time to be making major decisions. It's really tempting given the time of year, but instead you should be looking back at things. Evaluate and analyze how your year went, what you could have done differently. Then act upon it in the new year! 🤔 #reflection ……………………………………………………………………
Things you should be thinking about: what is making you stressed, toxic relationships, draining friendships, manipulating situations, negative energy, emotional traumas, physical illness, self worth, etc. Basically if it's not positively benefiting you, motivating you to become a better 'you', supporting you in your time of need, or allowing you to maintain your mental health then start planning a way to fix it and let go of the unnecessary negative baggage! 📝✂️👋

Custom roller ball blends for my favorite clients based on skin type! I love what I do and I love being able to give clients such a valuable gift! ✨❤️✨#tistheseason 🎄
Absolutely drenched after a good workout today followed by the sauna.
I've been using this time to reflect, brainstorm, ponder and dream and its often the time I get some of the most unique ideas.
When the blood is pumping and endorphins are flowing its a great time to create new possibilities for your life, your team, your family or anything you want to improve.
Turn thoughts to intentions, intentions into language, language into action and action into results.
