One of my favorite places to visit is British Columbia, Canada. 🇨🇦 There's just something special about their gorgeous cedar trees that are decorated everywhere you go and also their vivid city life - it's had a huge chunk of my heart since 2002. 🙌🏼 #victoriabc#vancouver#britishcolumbia#canada
This is Ben, my stud of a hubby and soulmate. We met in Cambodia in 2011 and sustained a long distance relationship between AUS and LA for 2.5 yrs. Our relationship is built on trust, unwavering love, honest communication and staying open to life's possibilities. As I reflect back on this journey, I want to give a special shout out to him for always encouraging me to follow my happiness without question, supporting my dreams and pushing me to continue on when I feel scared or have self doubt. I feel so lucky. ✨❤️👫❤️✨🙏🏼✨
Illuminating the New Moon in Aries 🔥🌑🔥 // Monday, March 27, 2017
Aries carries a dynamic energy that gets us to resurrect ourselves and spark new change into our lives! They are the fire starters of the zodiac and this new moon signifies the beginning of a radical new cycle and the astrological new year! We each carry a #genius making us equals, that when cultivated can change the course of our #destiny . This astrological influence encourages to live our lives unapologetically, uninhibitedly, and to create our wildest visions. When you channel this energy it can induce mass #transformation and creative potential. What is your calling? What are you most attracted to right now and what are the important changes you need to implement to allow yourself that space and room to create? You are being called to answer to and develop your individuality, as we seldom neglect our personal needs and focus on external responsibilities and distractions that drain us from #pleasure and from liberation. We are being forced to reflect on our personal spaces and our hearts, especially in areas where we are not serving enough or not opening more to. Therefore, #relationships and epiphanies may appear unexpectedly to give you further insight on how you’ve been steering your boat. As you make the appropriate life choices, challenge your spirit to face your shadows and that which you’ve repressed thus far. On another level, self-love & reverence are the themes of this New #Moon , forcing you to focus on the most important person, YOU! How you invest your time & #energy is your nourishment for your #Spirit & #Soul . Take authoritative action and do what is right for your development in this lifetime. It’s an ideal time to reprioritize what is important to you and what carries strong meaning, because this will bring...(Read Up on MyUrbanIllumination.com's #Mystic Insights) 📷: @chaninicholas

'The Power of Relationships & Networks' .
“So Elisha said to her, “What shall I do for you? Tell me, what do you have in the house?” And she said, “Your maidservant has nothing in the house but a jar of oil.” Then he said, “Go, borrow vessels from everywhere, from all your neighbors—empty vessels; do not gather just a few. And when you have come in, you shall shut the door behind you and your sons; then pour it into all those vessels, and set aside the full ones.” So she went from him and shut the door behind her and her sons, who brought the vessels to her; and she poured it out. Now it came to pass, when the vessels were full, that she said to her son, “Bring me another vessel.” And he said to her, “ There is not another vessel.” So the oil ceased. Then she came and told the man of God. And he said, “Go, sell the oil and pay your debt; and you and your sons live on the rest.”” - II Kings 4:2-7 NKJV .
We often hear the phrase 'no man is an island' - which really means people need people. If this lady had been one of those I dont need nobody, I can do it all by myself type of lady, would she have been able to approach anyone to ask for even a grain of sand talkless of borrowing their empty vessel?? NO! .
Her neighbors were instrumental to her breakthrough! If this lady was badly behaved and had been a bad neighbor, I am pretty sure no one would have borrowed her anything! She had networks of people around her she could approach to borrow vessels from and they did! It took what she had (oil) + her relationships/networks (gathering of the empty vessels) + God to take her to the next level of her life!! .
Who are you watering today? What relationships are you nurturing? Are you well-behaved to everyone or are you selective? No one but God knows tomorrow, so spread love to everyone around you and be well behaved... you never know who may be instrumental to YOUR breakthrough 😃❤
Sorry, not sorry. 😜Sometimes we have to let out our anger. Sometimes our truth is that for an instant we don't wish happiness for the people that hurt us. We are human beings that experience a large spectrum of emotions. It's ok to say "No, everything is not going to be alright." We have the right to sit in our pain and anger. Nobody should tell you otherwise. Things will pass and if you are a good person, you ultimately will wish others well. We have to allow the anger and grief as part of the healing process. We have shadow sides, just don't permanently live there. So let it out, you have permission. XOXO - Valerie

I don't want us to go drinking. I don't want late night conversations revealing our vulnerabilities. I don't want us to be buddies sharing dreams and regrets. Neither do I want to know you.
I want us to be strangers; to brush shoulders against each other, in a crowd. Stealing glances at one another and may be smile once in a while. I want to have the liberty to put together all those stories the lines on your face tell me, not knowing if it's true. Imagining the place where you come from, assuming its where you belong. Listening to your voice taking me through a time travel, admiring the little things you do from afar.
I don't want to know you. Don't want this charm to wear off. Be who you are, the man in the mask, cloaked from all I already know, and I will continue to adore you.
Till reality... Tears it apart. Some things are meant to be shielded. Let this be, too. You need not know me. I don't want to know who you really are. Be that reality dressed in a dream and I'll continue to be ignorant, to experience love, even if only briefly.
