☾᯽ ☾ BOUNDARIES
One of the things I'm really passionate about is helping boss babes set boundaries with love. Boundaries are bliss! If you're the type of gal who always feels pulled in all directions and you wind up resenting yourself and your biz for it, boundaries will change it all.⠀
Here a two key areas to get you started:⠀
YOUR TIME >>Be super clear with clients up front as to when and how they can contact you. I see a lot of coaches offering 'unlimited email support' and I used to do that too! Now I only offer 'priority email support' and have clear info on what that includes in my coaching contracts. ⠀
You do not have to be available for every FB message, Insta DM, email and Tweet.⠀
YOUR PRICES >> Being firm and confident in your pricing is what's going to take your biz to the next level. There are always going to be people who try to barter with you or tell you that you're too expensive. They usually aren't your dream clients after all and it's up to you to set the boundary with love and stick by your pricing and how you run your offers.⠀
Rose Campion is an interesting essence to accompany healing work within the bloodline. It seems to enlighten us to our choices of what to receive from our lineage. It helps heal woundings that cycle throughout the generations. Rose Campion opens pathways between generations via love and forgiveness. For best results, pray, dream, vision and travel through your bloodline for revelation of what’s there. Through these passageways we can receive healing as well as our spiritual inheritance.
So this new life is my favourite out of all the lives I've lived so far. Living alcohol free, eating the most DELICIOUS FOOD EVER (and copious amounts of, and still releasing weight/getting stronger) and being present fully + completely due in part to mental clarity gained by daily meditation is the only way to live. I will never ever go down the road I used to travel, ever again.
In my old life I smoked, drank almost every day, ate garbage and lots of animal products, and basically couldn't sleep or concentrate due to brain fog brought on by all of the above.
All these changes are so natural, nothing gimmicky, no products to sell here. This is all attainable in any budget. It's the most affordable luxury going because it is free. Everything I'm doing costs you nothing yet gives you the world.

I love this quote by @uglyyogaposturesinprettyplaces (it's a mouthful of a name I know; in a good way)
I totally resonate with this. So many people are happiness obsessed and I think it would be best if it stopped.
At its base our brains run on a cycle of pleasure and pain. It's hard wired into us. The more pleasure we experience, the happier we are. The more pain we experience, the more unhappy we are. The tricky thing is the more pleasure obsessed we become the more potential there is for pain. And it creates duality.
There is another way. And that way is to choose to be at peace. That is the middle ground, the center point, the moment, being present. When we step out of the pain, pleasure cycle, which is also to say the past and future, we become at peace. And in that state we experience something else, the phenomenon of joy. And joy is not reliant on anything but our presence.
So I say let's get peace obsessed, presence obsessed. And let's choose it on purpose.
#mancrushmonday on Thursday
I've added 'the defender' to my smoothie this morning!! I haven't tried them before but thought they would be a good addition on those crazy busy work mornings... #certifiedorganic#goldenchai it is so good, love the ginger zing 😍
sunday's bite size-self care idea focuses on transforming + alleviating the energy of angst, irritation, + #worry . on the blog, I'm serving my tried + true (brief) + effective, deep breathing + visualization techniques for people who want to feel better, but don't have 30 minutes to do so. tag a friend who could also benefit from a few extra deep breaths. #exhale , friends.
Let's all just breathe that one in for a second. ✨ You literally can't fail at being you. You're off the hook from trying to be the perfect version of you because you are already your perfect version of you. 😘
Danielle Dinten has toured with Alicia Keys in Europe, coordinated Kanye West's New York fashion show, styled the Victoria Secret Show in Paris and shot with Annie Leibovitz in Iceland for a Moncler campaign. Today, she's stopping by AGL to share what its like to walk in the shoes of a Fashion Stylist and Collection Coordinator. Head on over to the link in my bio to hear her story. 👆🏻#agoldlining
She might not be Bali, but she's home 💜 My favourite place to sit and reflect 💜
✨In the early hours of the morning, when Bali was still and all you could hear was the animals at work, Metanoia came and opened her eyes.
Metanoia played back tapes of her life and her heart wept.
Tears of change.
You're becoming the girl that you needed back then she whispered.
She had been on a journey of change for some time. Changing her mindset, herself, her way of life.
But now it was time.
In the stillness of the night she let her sorrows go. All the pain. And welcomed a new beginning.
The light you are seeking is always within you. You just need to give it the chance to sparkle.
🌟Message of the day🌟 🌟August 17th, 2017🌟
Yesterday and today calls us to stop. Breathe. Be still.
Often, there's so much going on around us (and in our own heads) that we become overloaded and frantic. This energy is a calming one.
It's taking a moment to just be still. To quiet our monkey mind and just listen. In stillness and inaction, we can recharge too. Life doesn't always have to be about actions. Sometimes the best thing we can do is nothing at all.
Is there a message trying to get to you but you've been clouded? Maybe a little quiet time will bring it forth.
Happy Friday!!! I'm what you'd call 'off the chain' excited about this particular Friday as my subscribers get to be the first to see my NEW FLOWER ESSENCE BLEND!!
Has anyone guessed what it might be for? Guessing game going for 2 more hours! (See previous post for conditions) .
And be watching your inboxes this morning people! .

Very Advanced: Yogi Yogini ~ Pranayama practices for laya
After purifying the body, the practices of pranayama are utilised as a basis for controlling the prana and dissolving the mind. These practices are regarded as the most powerful aid to laya samadhi.
Before beginning pranayama, however, you must master siddhasana. Then practise bhastrika through one nostril, the other nostril, and finally through both nostrils. While practising bhastrika, your diaphragm should remain absolutely quiet. Only the abdomen has to move in and out like the blacksmith's bellows. There should be no other movement in the body. It should be like a statue while practising bhastrika. Gradually the speed of respiration must increase. In the course of practice, the frequency, rapidity, depth and velocity of bhastrika become more and more terrible. But regardless of what velocity bhastrika attains, the body must remain motionless like a statue. You can close your eyes during the practice. If you prefer to keep them open, fix them on some point. Open or closed there should be total fixity throughout the practice. Continue with bhastrika until the breath stops by itself. Then discontinue the practice.
There is another form of pranayama which is very similar to bhastrika, and that is kapalbhati. Here the processes are reversed. Whereas in bhastrika the speed increases with further practice, in kapalbhati the speed becomes slower and slower. In the practice of bhastrika you go slow in the beginning, but in kapalbhati you go fast. As you progress in bhastrika, the rapidity increases and the breath gets shorter? whereas in kapalbhati, the speed is fast in the beginning and with practice it becomes slow and the breath gets longer. ~ Unknown
There is nothing wrong with you. Nothing. You are a soul on a journey, learning your lessons, healing, and carrying out your earthly curriculum.
Your path is perfect just as it is.

Don't waste your life for that which is going to be taken away. Trust life. If you trust, only then can you drop your knowledge, only then can you put your mind aside. And with trust, something immense opens up. Then this life is no longer ordinary life, it becomes full of God, overflowing.
When the heart is innocent and the walls have disappeared, you are bridged with infinity. And you are not deceived; there is nothing that can be taken away from you. That which can be taken away from you is not worth keeping, and that which cannot be taken away from you... why should one be afraid of its being taken away? It cannot be taken away, there is no possibility. You cannot lose your real treasure. ~ Osho
The Sahasrara Chakra is located on the top of the head. It is also known as the “Thousand-Petalled Lotus”, “Brahmarandhra” (the door to God) or the “Centre of a Million Rays” because it radiates like the Sun. No other light comes close to the brilliance of the Sun. In the same way, the energy and radiation of all other Chakras pale in the radiance of the Sahasrara Chakra.
In the Sahasrara Chakra exists an important power - Medha Shakti. Medha Shakti is a hormone that influences brain functions such as memory, concentration and intelligence. Yoga exercises can activate and strengthen Medha Shakti.
The Sahasrara has no special colour or quality. It is pure light, which contains all colours. The energy of all Nadis unites in this centre, like the waters of a thousand rivers pouring into the sea. Here is the seat of Shiva, the Supreme Self. The awakening of the Sahasrara Chakra means revelation of Divine Splendour and attainment of Supreme Consciousness. Just as night disappears with the rising of the Sun, ignorance fades with the awakening of the Sahasrara Chakra.
This Chakra represents the goal of Yoga, Self-Realisation and God-Realisation, where the individual soul unites with Cosmic Consciousness. One who gains this is liberated from all Karmas and achieves Moksha - complete liberation from the cycle of rebirth and death. In meditation the Yogi reaches Nirvikalpa Samadhi (the highest level of Samadhi) at the Sahasrara Chakra, where the mind finally comes to complete stillness and finds fulfilment in the union of knowledge, the knower and the object of knowledge.
In the Sahasrara Chakra the thousand-petalled Lotus blooms as a symbol of complete, unfolding Consciousness. The Divinity of this Chakra is Shiva in the form of pure, Supreme Consciousness. The corresponding element is Adi Tattva, the Supreme, spiritual Tattva. The Mantra is the same as for Agya Chakra, the original sound OM.
SWIPE RIGHT for the second video ➡️➡️➡️ I don't think there's much more I want to say about autism that hasn't been covered in the previous quotes already but I do have a few things to add about this concept of intentionally creating aspects of your reality not only during this lifetime but before you're born. It's why skilled astrologers (I had my birth chart reading done with @chakrapaniullal many years ago and he's great) can read your birth chart and tell you so many aspects of who you are. 🔮Who you are is literally imprinted in the cosmos when you're born.
Being aware of that concept is so important to seeing the divine perfection of everything that is happening on the planet right now and giving space to individuals who are different from you and have different intentions of what they wanted to explore during this lifetime, and how they choose to serve humanity. Some people chose to come and play the role of "hero" and other people chose to play the "villain". But both roles can be equal catalysts for planetary change and growth. Have you ever thought about that?
I think it's great to have has such an in depth look of the subject of autism this week and hardly mention the word vaccination at all. Kind of refreshing from my perspective. But guess what the subject might be for next week?? 😎
What we focus on expands.
You know how they say a watched pot never boils? Same idea. When we're so dialed in to how much longer before our hot water is ready, it seems to take ten times as long. On the other hand, when we're having a blast playing or hanging out with loved ones, time flies by. Because we're not focused on it.
So when we focus on our mistakes, we start believing that all that happens to us is bad. We start telling a story that we're unlucky - things just never work out for us. And the more we live in that attitude, the more we repel joy and attract more negative bullshit.
But it doesn't have to be that way. You can choose again. You can place your mistakes in front of you to learn from, but leave them behind as you keep stepping up. Embrace the lessons, appreciate the opportunity to grow, and get on with creating your badass life.
I am BEYOND excited to use my new decks. They arrived yesterday and today I get to try them out.
I saw The Vision Quest Tarot for the first time on @pushtiie's feed and fell in love with it. I pretty much ordered it that same week.
I've always been drawn to Native American culture. It's deep connection with nature, spirits, animals and Ancestors are some of the things that call to me the most. A few months ago, I was told I was actually a Native American in another lifetime. Then it all made sense.
I remembered this person also mentioned several lives in Egypt a looooong time ago, so I got The Egyptian Tarot because it resonated so much with me (I even had the Winged Scarab tattooed on my back before I knew) and I thought it would be very interesting to do readings with these two decks. Inspired by the findings of my Akashic Records.
You can never know yourself enough, in this life and from others. We are connected through invisible webs, time as we know it does not exist throughout the universe. We are little seeds growing with each breath, each experience, each life. It all calls us back to our very essence.
2 of my favourite things...#veggies and #hamburgers by the end of the week I just want super simple dinner meals that are quick to put together. Roast or grill the veggies ahead of time. I love pan frying the mushrooms in water with garlic and sometimes a tiny bit of butter...mmmm squeeze some fresh lemon on the veggies #nomnonnom#eatrealfood#live2inspire#transformyourself
What is the I Ching? There are so many ways to answer this one! The I Ching is the world's oldest oracle; it's a book of Chinese wisdom; it's the accumulated experience of over 2,500 years of diviners and sages, and beyond that of unimaginably ancient oral traditions; it's the voice that has been offering people help and wise, genial guidance for generations.
The I Ching as you buy it today will be a collection of texts - a wonderful mixture of imagery and advice, philosophy and poetry - divided into 64 'chapters'. These are the 64 hexagrams, which means simply a pile of six lines, either broken or solid.
When you consult the I Ching, you build up a hexagram line by line according to the results of coin tosses or one of the other methods, such as sorting yarrow sticks or pulling marbles from a bag. All the translations will tell you how this works - it's absurdly simple. And so you are pointed to a particular collection of texts - and, if one or more of your six lines is in the process of changing from solid to broken or vice versa, then there are also line texts to read, and the second hexagram that's formed after the lines have changed. A hexagram isn't just a convenient chapter heading - it's also a very simple, elegant picture of how the energy is flowing through the situation. I Ching means 'Book of Changes', and change is really the one constant throughout the book.(Not the right picture or is it you tell me??)🙌 #spiritjunkie#freespirit#zen#mindfulness#meditation#enlightenment#mentalhealth#raiseyourvibration#yogi#namaste#spiritualawakening#higherconsciousness#consciousnes#goodvibesonly#LoveAndLight#yogaeverydamnday#yogini#lightworker#om#thirdeye#chakra#taoism#visualart#yogis#yogalife#yogalover#yogainspiration#yogapractice
