Inspired by Light | Reflection
Spoken in the night-
Cancer waters have me in a place of profound self reflection. It is one of my most potent practices, clearly looking upon my actions and interactions over the past few years of personal evolution and seeing, with highest eyes the unfoldings that have occurred. Man, what a journey. By nature we are sinners and saints, beautiful, messy, eternal beings, galaxies bundled into bodies. Human. So we waiver, falter, make wild moves, climb high, fall far, indulge in 'unforgivable' acts, speak the words one should never say. And you know what? It is all perfect. Everything is as it should be. It took me a great deal of time to assimilate this teaching. To quiet my need to control, dictate, plan, affect outcomes, events- to separate from the what's supposed to be upon my life trajectory. But the reality is that every moment is a profound teacher if you allow it to be. Every person a reflection. Each word spoken an intention. Infinite opportunities to behave in our highest exist. So I bless the stories of what was for they are no longer. I look lovingly upon the girl lost in the rebellious hurt of alone for she is now a woman wise, and I greet each moment with powerful consideration, a conversation of creation born of beauty and Light. #weareformandlight#cancerseason#astrology#deepdives#conscious#selfreflection#itsanewday#ignitesomething#meditation#awakeningsovereignty#awakening#lighttribe#lightworker#intuitive#nature#inspired#vibrationaldesign#shaman#seer#medicinewoman#wordweaver#poetry#prose#awakeningpoetry#poetsofinstagram

Macadamia nuts! Ooh I can't wait to eat a few of these and press the rest for oil!
The nuts are full of monounsaturated fatty acids and anti-inflammatory qualities, which help to restore the skin's barrier function, prevent dryness and itching, and reduce water loss. Its chemical profile is very similar to that of human sebum, and regular use of this magical oil offers plenty of antioxidants known to support healthy skin cell membranes.
Mmm so luscious 😍 I'm thinking hand-ground rose petals & Elderflowers with a touch of jasmine oil blended in might be necessary for a dual face oil and sensual massage oil... but we shall see. Still a couple of months to go before they're ready for pickin'. 😘

Thanks for popping in and saying "Hi" @the.functional.naturopath and family👪 always nice to do the garden walk one on one😇 here's a little present to warm you on the long journey home🌸💚
If you're wanting to do the garden walk and experience the nourishment of herb infused oils this Saturday 1st July, there are still a few places available and as the beginning of the financial new year we've kept the early bird prices up till the very end👌🏼🌿🍄🌅
Red Clover is a natural medicine that I like to recommend, especially to women over 50. It contains phytoestrogen and can relieve any negative effects from estrogen deficiency. In fact, it's not just women over 50 that are prone to estrogen deficiency. It is estimated that the average woman will spend 1/3 to 1/4 of her life estrogen deficient. This can be caused by anything from dieting to hormonal birth control. So red clover of good for any woman to add to her diet. But don't feel left out fellas☝🏻 red clover prevents the hardening of arteries in males and females. Heart disease is the number one cause of death of MALES and FEMALES in the western world. So adding red clover to your diet can reduce that risk as well.
As for the oatstraw tops, I'm just really in love with them right now. I've been adding them to everything! They're from milk oats so they're really soothing and calming. Imagine the way milks is like comforting and almost sedative, oat tops are like that to me. Love, love, lovin it. Definitely adding to a bath mix soon🛁
Healing cannot happen in isolation.
Though we may embark on solo quests, rites of passage, and individual pilgrimages, an essential aspect, if not the most critical step of the process, is the return home. In Relation. Integration. Assimilation. Sharing. This is where the real work is done. Bringing it back from the space of the limen into the here-now and living it. Finding the words to express the experiences and sharing them. We are all walking each other home! We are each others greatest teachers and mirrors. Our neighbors and community, global or local. It is connection that gives these experiences deeper meaning than they every could have alone.
May we also remember that at the essence of all of the world's great spiritual traditions lies a quest for communion. An at-one-ment with the Great Mystery. Communion with the unseen and unheard forces that work within and around us. A glimpse into the unknown through dreams and other consciously entered altered states. A light shone on the matters of synchronicity and spirit. Alliances created with guides from the other side. A prayer for bridges built between worlds and the courage to cross them.
May we embrace this present age and use its gifts for the greatest leap in collective consciousness and spiritual evolution the world has yet seen. May we continue to walk our own paths in beauty, whatever they may be. May we honor the paths of others with utmost respect. May we honor the paths of those who walked before us, and laid the foundation for our present journeys. May we continue to pursue this Great Work impeccably and with the deepest love. May we love, love, and learn to love again.

I'm so grateful for my connection to Mother Earth, these trusted plant allies, and all of my teachers/mentors across the country. (I'm also grateful that @rickmanelius doesn't mind my ever growing medicine cabinet taking over our kitchen 🙈) Sometimes I just stand here in awe, smelling each herb, listening to its message, dreaming up new ways to use its goodness...
//PERSPECTIVE// Everything all comes down to perspective. Two people raised by the same drug addled mother each grow up with their own perspective. One who chooses to abstain and view the struggle their mother went through with an open and compassionate heart. The other who is burdened with resentment and contempt and chooses to numb themselves from the experience as much as possible. Same experience-different perspective. A reminder that ultimately how we view the world and therefore what we experience of the world ultimately boils down to a choice. The manner we choose to perceive the world around us and the experiences therein hold the power over whether we experience struggle and adversity or grace and ease. Because even when life sets us on a path we cannot control with people and factors we cannot predict we can always trust in the power of choice. The sovereignty of mind and body. The right to decide what captures our hearts and is allowed to influence our environment. Choose wisely.
Honouring the ancestors, I exalt in prayer.
Honouring the 4 directions, I bow down to my spirit guides and the cycles of life and death. Honouring the earth, I tend my soul in the mother.
Honouring the waters, I swim in you to remember.
Honouring all women. Honouring all men.
I thank you. I thank you. I thank you. -
You can never even begin to imagine where you will go or what you will become. You can never even begin to imagine how much you will grow and learn in this lifetime. You can never even begin to imagine the places you will see and go or the people you will meet. -
I never could have imagined that I would be where I am today. I always seemed so sure about where life would take me next then 💥 something completely on the opposite side of the spectrum of my ideas decided to take me on a different path! A path to the centre of my heart, a path grounded in earthen truths, that continues to teach me to reach within and without & pass the thresholds of limitations, beyond the physical, through the thick cloudy mist and into clarity of mind and spirit. -
I balance on the thin line of caution and freedom. All I want for myself in happiness. A deep and true happiness. Living in bliss and rawness. Yet at the same time I am cautious (to some degree) about what I choose to express here on social media and the choices I make. I sometimes fear what my family will think of me saying loudly and boldly my truth about this spiritual life that has called to me. My elder, Grandmother Kaariina, Venerable Heart of the Mountain Woman, spoke to me of her story once, saying that in order for her to be herself and to answer to the call of medicine woman she had to sacrifice the ideas and memories of who she once was, she had to sacrifice her relationships to certain friends and family members, her roles, her career. There need to be sacrifices made in order for us to be live freely attuned to spirit, to the essence of our souls. The higher self, the experiencer. That is really all I want for myself: to be free in the experience of all life, always living with 100% authenticity and integrity. 👇🏼 Continued in the comments 👇🏼✨
Twin parenting win: tonight only ONE of them peed on the floor after their bath! 😂 I'll take what I can get. We love using a drop or two of the calming Serenity blend in their bath before bedtime - it helps the kids calm down for sleep, and it helps me calm down, too! What are the essential parts of your kids' bedtime routines? 🌿😴💕
Each relationship we engage in create it's own shared frequency. This unified resonance has a specific & separate function for both parties. .
We come together to create, inspire, love, play, explore, share, heal & always to learn.
Although not all circumstances provide easy or graceful experiences, they all have their purpose. They are all here to tech us something.
Thank you to all the friends & lovers who have forced me to face myself, to all the situations that have provided me the opportunity to witness the parts of myself that feel unlovable, abandoned & betrayed.
It has taught me how to empathize with greater capacity, how to grieve when grief is present, and how to use my anger to catalyze my visions & create with passion.
I honor & celebrate the ever rotating cast of characters in my life with appreciation. As I explore my depths I am able to accommodate relationship at a deeper level & higher frequency, & look forward to all new connections I've yet to encounter. .
I love hard, generously & with loyalty, even when it's hard I don't turn my back.
Because I don't fear my reflection, no matter it's condition. .
XO, 💋✨ Julia Muse
One of my favorite quotes is Thoreau's "All good things are wild and free." But lately I've been thinking a lot about what it means to be wild & free. Specifically what it means to be Wild.
Every night my boys get pretty wild after dinner. They run circles around the house, jump off the couches or beds onto pillows, roar like lions, make the biggest messes. It's as if they instinctively know they'll have to be still for 8-9 hours, so they pack in 8-9 hours of energy into the two hours before bed. Boys need movement. They need to test their physical abilities. By nature, my boys are wild.
But that's not really the only way I've been thinking of Wild. Wild things simply are. The exist by instinct, and though we've come so far with intellect, and though I've had an attraction to ideas and language my whole life, I think there is so much wisdom in Wild. In listening to one's intuition and acting on instinct. In forgoing your shoulds for the sake of your soul. .
Because souls are wild things. And I think there's a trend toward rewilding lately, but I also think there's a lot of social taming. Stepping in line, marching to orders and rhythms other than our own, other than nature's, other than that which cannot be controlled.
Because that's the thing about wild things. They are a little scary because they are unknown. .
I've been doing my best to create safe borders so I can let my sons be Wild within them. I'm still navigating the specifics around that. .
And I've been doing my best to begin to listen to my Wild within. Especially since I'm further from nature than I'd like to be or have ever been. I've been letting my boys play in the mud, and embracing the earth in new ways. Creating medicines from that which I've foraged or grown. Testing them out.....and soon, I'll be ready to send them out into the world. Scary though that idea is, these new dreams can't be tamed. .
Can't wait to share more, but in the meantime, how are you letting something you've formerly quieted or shushed or tried to tame come out & howl?

Part 2: The predictive aspect of my clients reading. (See previous video at @laurabrown.co)
Once you build a relationship with the tarot you learn how to tap into it's explorative nature as well as it's predictive. You learn your personal reading tells and develop a connection to cards and know their meaning intimately.
Highlighting the deliciousness of tarot. How multifaceted this tool can be when we do not limit it's intent but instead open to it's message.
Is Tarot reflective or predictive? As someone who approaches the cards from both paradigms I share this reading (with her permission) to highlight the vast possibilities of this tool. In the reflective aspect of a reading with a client we see her growth and process.

A work in progress of one of my artworks. You can see my artwork, my main career (!) @periennechristian My artwork has similar themes to this hobby insta account. I make work about landscape, nature, story and wild plant medicine. During an upcoming exhibition I will be taking visitors out on a weed walk to identify and learn about medicinal weeds and then draw them. I take commissions from people to draw the landscapes, stories and plants that are close to their hearts, weaving the different threads together on the one picture plane. People often get emotional when they see the final piece. I work intuitively with all my artworks and really feel into what each picture needs. .
