In this new article on the @bsfree_spirituality blog, I tell the tale of my first ever workshop tour and the lessons I learned while leading 12 cacao ceremonies across the western U.S. in October 2017. This is a cross-post with the @kulacollective blog. They were co-producers on my @soulliftcacao tour, and also where I did my yoga teacher training! To read the story, head to bit.ly/cacaorecap
My Pregnancy Part 1
Carrying my little Babe
The first 20 weeks of pregnancy was surreal, I did not start showing until around 16 weeks, which was great since I could fit into my normal clothes.
Symptons of pregnancy I noticed was a lot of acne, headaches, feeling tired all the time, my sinus was constantly playing up and If I wasn’t hungry I was nauseous.
But I wasn’t too sick, I never really vomited but I was nauseous most of the first trimester (13 weeks) It was crazy to think I was growing a baby in my stomach when I didn’t look pregnant.
At 9 weeks I woke up one morning and went to the toilet I was bleeding. A lot of blood. It was a Sunday morning and I quickly yelled out to my mum to tell her, I went to the hospital with A.
He sat with me for about 30 minutes then went home before I was even called in...
I peed in a cup (you pee in cups alllllll the time when you are pregnant) he tested for traces of blood and there was, obviously. The doctor told me to go home, and wait and see what happens but I was booked in for an ultrasound on Monday.
The first time seeing my little baby was beautiful A and my mum were with me at the ultrasound, seeing this little human moving around in my belly was amazing so I didn’t miscarry. How lucky was I...
This trimester went pretty slow, and I’m sure it does for everyone, at 12 weeks we went to my ultrasound to test for Down Syndrome and fetal growth. At this ultrasound they moved my due date 1 week back so I was now due on the 24th of April - not the 18th.
I was annoyed because it was another week I had to add to the calendar before my baby would arrive.
Whilst at the ultrasound I saw the baby sucking it’s thumb and do a full somersault! It was so cute, I started getting so excited and began to buy things.
I was convinced I was having a boy, there was like 1 percent chance I thought it might be a girl haha, so I went off buying neutral colours and a few little boyish ones 😅
Everything was going pretty smooth with being pregnant throughout this trimester, except when I became really sick from a sinus infection and low blood pressure. Which caused me to have a weeks worth of fainting spells and horrible #Readthecomments

Dreams give you something to live for, and the journey towards living your dreams is to live in the present. .
When we can't be happy with our current circumstances because we don't have every thing we want, we block ourselves from moving forward and reaching those dreams.
Everyday is a blessing full of opportunities for happiness. When we can't find happiness today here and now we are telling the universe we are ungrateful for the current blessings we have now. .
Even if its tough, stay positive. The road will not always be clean and straightforward. Many times the road has swerves and turns and bumps as well. Sometimes the road comes with blockages and standstills so we can learn out how to travel every road. And after the long drive, finally we will arrive to our desired destination.
Your life force energy is spent on who and what you give your attention to, so it’s important for you to invest your attention wisely. You have a limited amount of energy. Don’t spend it indiscriminately. When in doubt, think in terms of reciprocity. If you want to increase your energy, balance giving and receiving attention. Also, be aware of any people, habits, or ideas which are draining your attention bank account. Move your attention away from that which depletes you and be careful not to deplete the energy of others. Some things, of course, will need your attention that you would rather not deal with, but don’t run away from unfinished business. Spend some quality attention on things that need mending and in the long run you’ll have more energy. Ultimately, only you can decide how best to spend your energy, but if there’s anything that’s not flowing smoothly for you, pay attention to how you spend your attention.
Acquiring self love is one of the most crucial yet often most difficult aspects of growth. Dont wait to love yourself under certain conditions.. Don't wait for a better job, better partner, better appearance or more money, none of it will matter if we don't cultivate the seeds of acceptance now..the only time is now...as you are in your wholeness, with flaws and all. Don't put it off...begin the journey! .

Chocolate and cigarettes - let's get it straight. You know what's good & bad for you. Do you care.. yes & no. The self destructive force that is you where does it come from? Why is it when life sucks, you turn to substances that suck even more. Drugs alcohol disgusting people, you know they're so bad for you & yet you crave them, crave everything they provide. What the fuck do they provide you with? Do they make it better, the pain better, your decline better? No. So why do this to your self. Self help suggests begin by - loving yourself. Love yourself so much that your addictions simply vanish. If you have an addicting persona this conclusion is an obvious one but is it obvious, no. How the fuck do you love yourself if your destroyed and further destroying yourself with every thing and anything that leads to more pain. The answer is just that.. it's an answer. It's the answer you want to hear. This is why you do it to yourself because you want to be right. You want to believe that whatever this pain is that started this self destruction is correct. So now you must change that answer. You need to go against yourself in order to WIN. You must fuck off every order that you're accustomed to believing & rebel against it. Fuck you self you are not right and your answer is not right. I do not agree with the pain that someone or some thing has caused me and I do not agree with that answer. The answer is this. Fuck you. Fuck what you think of me. Fuck what you've done to me. Fuck all this pain. Your answer is that you are not correct. Your answer is that me, I, just me and everything that I am and will be that is the fucking answer. By addiction you are letting the source win. You are agreeing with that source. You are associating yourself and becoming a team. So ask yourself. Do you want to be bffs with your pain or do you want to go so far against it that you become a winner in life. Do you want to be in love with your pain or do you want to be in love with you? Write your feelings below. Team fucking WIN
