♥️Connecting to Nature♥️ The thing is we don't have to go "out in nature" to connect to nature. We only have to understand that we ARE nature. We ARE the Love, the Beauty, the Harmony, and the Balance that we admire when we observe and emerse ourselves in the natural world. When we unplug and disconnect from our human creations and focus on the SOURCE of all that is, then we are connected to our True Nature.🔼 It's the day after Thanksgiving, and I needed this. As I stepped out this morning to a beautiful, cool, late-fall day, with the sunshine on my face, I knew I needed to be outdoors today. A walk in the woods. Some fresh, wood-soaked air. Just a dose of pure love.🔽 I imagined finding some kind of winter red berries to gather for a nature project I'm working on. And even if I didn't find any I knew I wouldn't leave without some kind of gift. And I was right.🔼We found these at a point on the trail where it got a little dense and confusing... Our turn around point. Before we did, thanks to mobile data, we were able to find out that these are Barberries (most likely of the Asian variety) & they're edible. 🍒 Bitter, but EDIBLE. Anytime I find anything edible in the woods I connect to my inner-child. Excited. Connected. Happy. Grateful.♥️ This is what I needed today. A great day for my root chakra. May the journey continue as smoothly.♥️ #journeythroughthechakras#earthmedicine

I've spent my day tapping away on my laptop letting the words pour out and getting my creative juices flowing. I'm proud for allowing myself to be vulnerable enough to post my first video on YouTube which was my first step on this amazing journey. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Thank you to everybody who said they would read my blog posts if I wrote them, the poll results made my heart explode with gratitude. I'm so excited for this next step in my life and can't wait to see where it will take me. I'm currently filling my blog full to bursting with inspiring blog posts and content that I hope you will all love. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As I sit here writing this, reflecting on my day, it makes me even more inspired to work hard now so that I can have more days like this in the future. Writing, sharing, inspiring, creating. ✨
If any of you have thought about doing something that could change you're life but you keep putting it off, go and do it. Don't let anything get in the way of you and your dream life. You can do everything you put your mind to. ❤️
"Our strength comes from that magic, from the earth and the sky, from the fire and the water. Fly high , swim deep, give back to the earth what she gives you." - Juliet Marillier , Daughter of the Forest 🌲🌲🌲 🐿🦌 One of my favorite books!
The Healing powers of Gaia have got to be NUMBER one #MagicK in the Universe. The nature brings out the side of me that the city cannot. The innocence. The fluorescence of my essence. Evanescence of my shadow. Luminescence of my light. What an incredibly healing space this was.... The sun, the trees, the waters, the air. They all spoke to me in spirit, in energy. I responded in laughter, in light, in happiness. It left me feeling clear and nourished. I was indescribably happy, fully connected to the Mother Earth. I felt vividly alive in my existence. I Felt connected to my body from the INSIDE. My soul... my soul was happy. And It was just so simple. It was just the Sun, the waters, the trees, and the air. I was happy with just that. Get me the most expensive purse, get me the most luxurious car, I can guarantee you those things cannot bring out THIS KIND of happiness out of me. The kind of happiness you feel because you are grateful for the simple existence alone. I AM GRATEFUL. Give eternal thanks to the Mother Earth.THANK YOU! You everlastingly humble me. 🌷🌎 #VikiHan @momentwithViki #Love#Nature#InLove#Happiness#Healing#Gaia#MotherEarth
WHAT A GIFT! 🎁
A beautiful +50° day in November in WISCONSIN! ☀
You BET I totally soaked it in and got an outdoor workout. 💪
Workout + fresh air are two of my most favorite things to energize my body and soul...(usually I feel this POST workout). 🌟
Thank you, Mama Earth. 🌎🌟🌍🌟
Because Olivia and I don’t eat meat, dairy or gluten, we had a LOT of plant-based, gluten-free side dishes yesterday that were made in support of this. My older daughter, who will eat meat, actually forgot to serve herself turkey as there were so many delicious side-dishes! My mother-in-law loved the raw kale-persimmon-pomegrate salad with citrus dressing that I made and asked me to make it for our dinner together on Christmas Eve! And my own mom emailed me this morning to say that next year, she thought we shouldn’t do a whole turkey anymore, but just some turkey pieces, for those who wanted meat.
Aside from my deep understanding of plant-based food for vital health, I also appreciate a different side of education I received when getting my plant-based-nutrition certification. This side addressed the reality of the state of the planet, in response to the meat and dairy industries. These industries are so environmentally destructive, that the path (and often pain) associated with true acknowledgment of this destruction is often tangled and deep. I know, as I avoided facing this reality for most of my life. The understanding I now have is like a gift, finally, after many years of wanting to be here and for whatever reason- not being able to do it. It is hard to express how it feels for me, but it is for certain one of the most wonderful, freeing and powerful things I have ever experienced.
Anyway, I have to say...last night was wonderful for me because I saw the little glimpses of change of consciousness in our own family meal- a beautiful, seasonal, delicious raw kale salad becoming a “star” dish. A child forgetting to serve herself meat amongst the wonder of plant-based options. Tiny sparkly lights of change of consciousness. These lights, they are little, but they are real. #savetheearth#consciousliving#plantbasedlife#motherearth#consciouseating#wakeup#mmtribe#mmcommunity#plantbasedmama#savetheeartheatplants
Meet Gina Susanna @nourishandeat , one of our REWILDING speakers and friends, a recovered anorexic, orthoexic, and excessive exerciser who spends most of her time sharing Body Positivity information with her many followers and friends. She knows BP saved her life, and she's made it her mission to help others do the same. Her mantra is this: LIFE IS TOO SHORT TO SPEND IT AT WAR WITH YOUR BODY. Come listen to Gina share her story this January, and perhaps take in some inspiration from her this holiday weekend if this particular time of year is challenging for you and/or causes guilt and harmful feelings. We love you, Gina. #Rewilding2018

Happy birthday Sagittarius! ♐ That's right, the Sun 🔆 is now in Sagittarius. So, in honor of the Centaur, let us learn a bit about our Sagittarian friends.
Sagittarius (along with Pisces) is ruled by Jupiter, the planet of optimism, spiritual strength, luck, good fortune, and oh yeah, Tyrrany. Both signs also rule the Third Eye Chakra. The gods or masters ruled by Jupiter are Thor (Thor's day is Thursday so happy Thor's day friends!), Zeus, and Jesus (jeZEUS).
Sagittarians are able to be one of the most open-minded, wise, spiritual and philosophical signs of the zodiac, but the unevolved Sagittarius May have what you call" horse sense" (as they are half horse half human) and reason without logic. This however could never take away from their.unique genius. They are very intelligent beings but not in the everyday, logical sense that society tells us we are intelligent. This can cause some Sag Sun signs to feel different or, "not normal" when they fail to see their unique magnificence. As a stallion, a Sagittarius has a unique and different beauty, which they may also fail to recognize. All that needs to be understood is that there IS no normal. There is only society's artificial brainwashing of mass conformity. There is no reason to not see your own uniqueness and different beauty.
Sagittarians intelligence is another thing that leads them to tyrannical thinking, like Pisces. Both of these signs can tend to feel as if certain rules do not apply to them, which is usually their biggest downfall. They tend to do whatever it takes to get the outcome they desire, when that power urge deep down was not destined to hurt others for personal gain. It was meant to fight for the truth and all that is good. The tyrant twin inside of Jupiter is there to save the world from Evil (the devil) hence why Christ (Consciousness), the awakening that happens inside us, is what will end evil and change our world for the better. Jupiter cannot be stopped, and in mythology, Jupiter has the strength of a Sun, and Jupiter (JeZEUS, Thor) is the only planet which can defeat Saturn (Satan). Happy Sagittarius Season, friends!! ♐

Change and renewal, just as the way water comes back and forth we go back and forth. What brings the change is a ripple. One ripple starts the momentum of moving forward. Be the ripple in your life that brings you forward to new ideas and mindsets. #postivity#water#earth#motherearth#change
Thankful for my family, friends & amazing opportunities in my life. But this Thanksgiving, also giving thanks to the non-silent, mask wearing, statement making Earth fighters who fight for our planet which abundantly gives us life w/o asking for any gratitude in return. Thankful for Mother Earth. //° 🌎 #leatherjacketsandmasks
Our dear Mother Earth whom has been with us since birth, embodies a love that is unconditional, and has always been generously hospitable. She holds all living close to her heart, and has nurturing growth down to the finest art. She gives and gives and gives some more, from her perspective no one should be poor. For true richness comes in the forms of love, health and holistic balance, things in which she inspires and provides in abundance. #rhymesforchangingtimes#motherearth#newzealand#kiwi#balance#love#harmony#photography
