This has been my focus today. Too much to be grateful for to allow negative self talk.

We've gone pretty deep into shadows which wanted to materialize, but today in the #octtarot we are going to close a door to something that is best left in the past. 🥀

#maryeltarot | 7 of Swords

We all have baggage we carry with us, the weight of betrayal and deception clinging onto our backs like a cloak. The thing is, while these are important events and circumstances from our past, that's exactly where it belongs... in the past. Even though these things have an affect on us in the present, the only ones responsible for our happiness is us. Blaming our restrictions on something we cannot change only creates more obstacles for us. What are we gonna do, build a time machine? Even if we could, it wouldn't fix anything.

Close that door and reach for the window 💖 Climb out and leave that cloak in the closet.

Good afternoon!

I did some Shamanic journeying into my Garden today, and I was greeted by someone I knew, Natalie, my Shamanic teacher who gave me this gift, and she peeled off her face to reveal another practitioner, who peeled their face, and they peeled off theirs....and on and on until the body before me was just little vibrational energies floating. *Looks like white noise on the TV, but in blues and silvers and whites*

And this energetic body formed a circle around me and cast itself into my being, letting me know that we are all part of this giant collective conscious.  And then a bat flew at me and landed on my back, mounting his wings upon my shoulder blades. 
The Bat reminded me that I am of balance (Libra), and I do not have to constantly seek it because my nature will lead me to it, every time.  I also was reminded that my shadow is always around me, that I cannot dispose of the darkness that is nearby, but to embrace it and let it be loved. 
Then I used my new wings and flew around the Garden, which has changed dramatically since I have last been there.  It felt really good and I was really strong in my presence. 
I am surrendering myself to the Divine God and Goddess, letting them truly speak through me, to guide me and to help me move forward with my dreams and goals.  I'm feeling better than I have in a REALLY long time.  I hope the same for you all!

Not sure if this is the way the EK process is supposed to work, but yet a other subconcious personality popped up this morning. . The spoiled brat.
.
.
The one that pouts and screams and cries if she doesn't get what she wants... the way she wants it. I saw her as a young and slightly warped picture of me, with a screwed up pouty face whining about how all this work is too hard.
.
.
So here are her cards.... .
.
Her nature - the devil.  Again,  different deck same position as yesterday!  All these guys fall into this category for obvious reasons.
.
What sets her off, when does she come out- page of wands.  This might be a stretch, but I'm interpreting this as she gets triggered when the enthusiasm and excitement of others and their projects or ideas get up in her business to try get her on board .
.
What is she looking for - six of wands.  Lol, she just wants acknowledgement.  She just wants her needs to be recognized as important and right, and all of her ideas as "the best". A lot of craving recognition and displays of reassurance.... Which is a bit of a show to hide a deeper insecurity.
.
.
That six really makes it hard for her to go along with others ideas, because going along with the ideas or wishes of someone else means dropping her own for a bit.  Which denies her the recognition that makes her feel loved.  Yep, that definitely sounds like a part of me.
.
.
I wonder who I'll meet next?

1. In what way(s) am I greedy?
King of Pentacles♛
There are many things coming up with this  card - many icky things - and I feel too vulnerable to share them.
🦇🦇🦇
2.  How do my desires get in my way?
The Star⭐
Yes, my idealized vision of the future, of humanity, and of my life keep me from living in the present and from appreciating all of life's beautiful imperfections.
🦇🦇🦇
3.  Where am I being dishonest?
7 of Wands😨
I can't do this alone.  Any of it.  And also, I'm possibly being dishonest about what my obstacles actually are.  I don't know anything today.

There's a story I ran across a year ago that met me exactly at the right time. I'll give you my version: ✨
In the beginning, there was a deep dark velvet nothing. An ebbing tide of empty longing. This darkness was vast and never changing. It was called loneliness and fear, doubt and uncertainty. It was named shame and upset. 
But this hollow space spoke. It asked for knowing, it brought forth hope, it humbled itself into prayer. And as all prayers are heard, this empty shadow space, was answered with the breath of light. ✨
For let it be known, that darkness begot the first light.
✨
I remember the moment that this idea sunk into the shell of my body. I remember the surrendering electricity the coursed through my being as I became aware of such an astounding truth. My darkness prayed for my light.
✨
Still, up until this day, I have a tendency to shove my darkness into a box, throw it away in a corner, abandon it. Call it evil. Call it my enemy. Create an ocean between my brightness and my shadow self. And yet my shadows pray; See me. Feel me. Call to me. Help me. Hear me. Heal me. ✨
Who can deny a love so vast, that it calls out no matter how often I abandon it. I wear masks to hide it from myself and from others. I've showed up to my darkness as a conqueror, an invader, a warrior willing to kill.  My darkness shows up to me as it is. A hurt child. A sorrowful soul. A piece of me that I severed and tossed.
✨
How brave this piece can be that it travels through space and time to find me. How humble a peace to have, that my hurt calls out in prayerful song.
✨
I'll leave you with what I know so far. You are both dark and light. One cannot be without its mate. You are both seen and unseen. You are not half, but whole. In all lives, in all timelines, on all dimensional plains. Know the whole. See the complete story. It will hurt because it is beautiful. It will create peace because of harmony. Don't leave half of yourself behind, it will always find you. 📸: @jeremyryan 💄: @icanmakeyoublush

Japanese Translation :
精神性(スピリチュアル)な成長を知る為に外の世界の出来事、他人の反応に頼る、こだわるのを辞めましょう、あなたがどれだけ成長したかを決めるのは、あなたが外の世界向けて、状況、他人の行動、意見に関係なく、自分の反応を意識して変えることです。

• I refuse to be a victim •

This is my mantra this week, this is my practice. •
The thing I always hated most is people being angry at me and I found myself in a situation now where there is no other way then someone being extremely upset with me. I have this habit of people pleasing, of trying to make amends. When people get angry at me, I get upset and make myself small, become the victim in the equation and let them waltz over me. This week I am practising in standing my ground and it is as uncomfortable as it is necessary. Hard work doesn't always happen where you can see it 🌙 #wildwomen #shadowwork #ownyourshit #growth #takeresponsibilty #anger #peoplepleasing #hsp #empath #wildempath #witch #moonchild #mantra #iamnotavictim #otherpeoplecannotdecidehowishouldfeel #thoughseason #yoga #authenticity #lifeasitis #keepingitreal #cat #catsofinstagram #yogini #lifelessons #witchesofinstagram

The Intersection of Self-Worth and Net Worth.
🙏🏽
One of the most important lessons I learned after I went out on my own is that self-worth and net worth are proportional. When I increased my self-worth enough to pursue my dreams, I automatically increased my net worth. What a surprise it was to see that I could grow my net worth outside of a full-time job! Of course, I’m not the first person who’s done that, but so many of us have a hard time believing it’s possible.
🙏🏽
The truth is that whatever your beliefs about your worthiness, they will directly affect the amount of financial ease you can create in your life. As I’ve said, this is the main reason some people find that the “law of attraction” becomes blocked or hits a ceiling. No matter how many exercises they do to become magnetic and abundant, their financial situation remains the same. Deep unconscious beliefs about self-worth are the missing pieces of the puzzle.
🙏🏽
It’s up to us to take the actions necessary to clear these obstacles. And it’s a lifelong journey. You’ll never get bored because there will always be more to learn about yourself. We’re nothing if not wonderfully complex beings.
🙏🏽
Yes, it takes work to get past the programming of our childhoods. But it isn’t a burden. It’s something to cherish and relish. As adults, we have a wonderful opportunity. We can choose to base our identities on who we truly are inside—the personality, the essence we came into this life with.
🙏🏽
This is who you were before you were imprinted with anybody else’s opinions—imperfect, human, thoroughly beautiful, and oh so worthy. Trust me: There’s so much more possible for you, and self-worth is the key! All you have to do is turn it, and the door will open.
🙏🏽

Balloon Flower (Platycodon grandiflorus), aka Chinese Bell Fower, is native to East Asia. It is grown both as a medicinal herb and a vegetable, as well as a garden ornamental with showy bell-shaped violet-blue flowers. 
As the common name would suggest, Balloon Flower has unique flower buds that swell up like balloons. Each of it’s five petals remain fused at the tips as the flower bud gently swells and gestates until it is ready to bust open into its full violet-coloured glory. After the petals wilt, a new gestation begins as its large ovules swell with ripened seed. 
Balloon Flower is a meditation on how to move in and out of the stages of introversion and extroversion in a graceful and balanced way. In a culture that encourages extroversion to a fault, it can sometimes be difficult to honor that each of us has the equal need for introversion. 
A time of introversion is necessary to nourish and integrate, build integrity. It is not ‘doing nothing’ but 'inward doing'; and truly the secret to wholeness. The new moon in Libra tomorrow is an opportunity to move inward and experience deeper reflection on our relationship to ourselves and to the earth and those around us. 
During a new moon, the sun and the moon are in conjunction. They sit side by side in the sky allowing the perfect opportunity for the union of their opposing introverted and extroverted natures. Wholeness can be found through the marriage of the sun and moon within us; the integration of the inner with the outer; the shadow with the light. 
A common herb in Traditional Chinese Medicine, Balloon Flower is little known in the West. The fleshy roots have been used for thousands of years in Asia as a treatment for respiratory disorders, especially those that are inflammatory, damp and phlegmy in nature. It has also been shown to lower cholesterol levels, inhibit the histamine response, and balance blood sugar. 
Balloon Flower is herbaceous perennial that is hardy to zone 4. It grows to about two feet tall, with flowers opening from July - August. It prefers moist, well-drained soil and a spot in part shade or full sun. The roots can be dug in the fall of the second or third year.

NOTHING LASTS FOREVER BUT IT WILL SEEM THAT WAY IF YOU DON'T TAKE ACTION 🙃 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We understand that it may feel as if your current condition of living and feeling may never end. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is why we ask you to not allow yourselves to feel victim to your circumstances, but rather take action and be proactive in your lives. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Many of you experience negative thought patterns. We ask you to begin finding ways to disrupt those patterns every day. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Many of you have financial difficulties. We ask you to be creative and resourceful to find the means to improve this every day. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Many of you feel lost about what your calling is. We ask you to find ways to get clearer on this every day. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We ask you to take action each and every single day to move forward. What you desire will not often show up spontaneously from one day to the next. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It is you who must put effort it in for it is the best way of seeing what you are truly capable of and what will give you the confidence to truly know that anything is possible for you if you truly desire it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We ask you not to be discouraged. It is a process you must go through. It can take some time to break away from many of your self-destructive or self-sabotaging patterns. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But as you make these minor shifts consistently, you will begin to see that they get less challenging, that you feel better about your progress and that you are becoming more of your true self. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Have patience with yourselves as you move through this process. What seems hard now will indeed be easy to do in time.

Hello sweet buttercups! Today's card is the Seven of Swords from Tarot del Fuego. I am in love with this totally badass depiction that deserves to be embroidered on the back of a denim jacket! There is so much energy firing around this lion as he shows his power and rage!

The Seven of Swords shows us what it feels like when we find ourselves again in old cycles or feeding old beliefs. When we realize that we are in the same situations, pains and losses that we thought we healed, we feel as though we've deceived ourselves or failed ourselves. We begin to think we are powerless or that we are not making any progress. We begin to doubt that we can trust ourselves and that this will continue to happen.

Baby cakes, this thinking is the deception. The Seven of Swords shows us the beginnings of realizing our own  strength. It tells us that when we realize we are reliving old cycles and beliefs, we become empowered. The Seven of Swords celebrates the fact that we have come to a point of recognition. We can see through the blindfold just as this lion can and this gives us back our power. The Seven of Swords reminds us that this is part of healing and soon our talent to see that we are falling into old habits will get quicker. We'll see them coming from miles away. Be gentle with yourself, loves. This is what healing looks like. 🦁🔥

Shadow Self-Love Journey
Day 3: Shadow Food
#shadowselflove
Directions: Post a picture of food, any food. Discuss any shadowed feelings around food, eating, diets or disorders. What do you think our culture keeps in the shadows about food? What foods do you eat or what eating habits do you have that you wouldn't find easy to share with the world?
🍯🍯🍯🍯🍯
Our culture in America has a food shadow a million miles wide. I would like to think we choose to be complicit in this or not. But it's not that simple.
🥚🥚🥚🥚🥚
I struggled with eating disorders for 10 years, and I feel like the majority of people I know (especially women) did or do have an eating disorder.
I have never had a good relationship with food.
As a child, I wouldn't eat much and preferred drinking milk or apple juice as food sources.
When I was 12 I became clinically depressed.
Puberty hit, upsetting stuff happened in life, karma descended, and the bubbly, talkative, motivated 11-year-old Cat disappeared. I would come home from school every day so exhausted (I went to an amazing arts school that was competitive and demanding) and grab cookies or snacks, go to my room, shut the door, lay down on my bed and watch hours of X-Files reruns I had obsessively recorded on VHS tapes and labeled and card-catalogued. (Not an exaggeration). Then at night I'd start homework and stay up late getting it “just right”. I gained so much weight that year, and it only made more depressed.
I hid that habit from everyone because I thought I wanted to be left alone. What I realize now is that I did it because I was being left alone.
My family was busy.
I had friends but none of them had experienced depression yet or maybe just werent talking about. I felt alone and ashamed and lazy and crazy.
I most of all hated all the pretending I did outside of my room. Pretending I was okay and that people didnt need to worry about me. I was always praised for not being fussy.
I started experiencing panic attacks. (I realize now that pretending I'm okay causes me a lot of anxiety.)
The doctor gave me xanax.
Xanax to a 12 year old.

#ShadowWorkOctober hosted by @mnomquah

Oct 17. Myth: What hurtful narrations / stories about myself do I keep telling myself, believing and feeding? King of Swords and 10 of Cups. The Dark Grimoire deck shows the dark side of the King of Swords, cold and distant, detached from emotions, objective to the point of being merciless and unable to compromise. Sometimes I think I am like that. 10 of Cups is obvious. I tend to think of happiness as just a dream, an utopia. When things are going too well, I expect that it will all collapse and because falling from the high place is more painful I deliberately keep myself from feeling happy. 
Oct 18. Mask: What role do I choose to play in social situations? 6 of Cups. This one came as a surprise to me. I think that people usually tend to play the role in society that makes them look better and feel better, that compensates somehow their weaknesses. If I ever play a role, it's a role of being weaker, unqualified and not knowing. Maybe that's easier for me, not letting people expect too much from me.. I was the youngest child in the family and I think I still tend to adjust myself to that family dynamics, even if it doesn’t make sense anymore. Other than that i don't think i wear any masks i tend to always be my awkward self.

What motivates it? King of Coins. I couldn’t understand it so I drew a clarifier from the oracle deck and I got Heliotrop (Bloodstone) - Sacrifice. That makes things a bit clearer.

I just skimmed the surface here but I feel like I touched something important that I haven’t realized before.

Day 18 #shadowworkoctober: What hurtful narrations/ stories about myself do I keep telling myself?

Another question that challenged my nerve but brought to light something very significant. 
#annaktarotdeck #shadowwork #healing #peace #emotions #tarotreadersofinstagram
I’m inspired by the ways I’m seeing women leverage the energy of metoo in conversations that are real and honest. This is how to heal and unite in realness.

The conversation has amazed me, particularly the acknowledgement that it is not black and white and that blame only leads to more isolation from the issue than actually addressing it. 
For me self betrayal and lack of understanding of the sacred nature of my body and how it has wisdom and is my responsibility to cherish is the main learning that has caused me much pain and suffering growing up in this culture. I don’t blame anyone for this lack of understanding in fact I am hugely grateful for my ability to be confused by something about being human - and a woman - and learning all I can about s subject. 
I’ve learned about somatics and how our culture has mostly forgotten about their body besides to move it around a bit. I think this forgetting contributes to the sexual abuse we see in our culture.

I’ve learned about habits, how we form them and how we create ritual and ways that nourish our soul. I believe the forgetting of how to cherish our life creates soul loss.

I’ve studied in a red tent, learned from Jungian therapists that emphasize the soul work I’m passionate about and the infinite perspectives available around a complex human issue. In particular I studied shadow work and darkness as a result of over emphasizing light as our culture does and how the darkness can be resolved. Healing comes through awareness and sharing - but a shift in a cultural darkness will come by changing ourselves and taking new actions in the energy of love.

I’ve committed to helping my daughters learn how to navigate this world. I’ve written a book about how to feel the beauty of becoming a woman for when they get older. Now, I’m considering an additional conversation about how to set boundaries. It’s not about saying no, it’s about being able to act on your truth with your whole self in the moment. To not let fear win. This is a microcosm of a larger cultural yearning to be able to access what is real and act out of self love and respect.

How many times do you get caught up in some defeating pattern only to realize later that you were totally  in your story of "they" "shoulda" "why me"... It's like when you drive home from work and pull into the drive but really have no recollection of having driven home.  Know what I mean? 💎

I'm proposing awareness to the ways we play small, entertain thoughts of lack, attack and blame BEFORE we go there. This requires vigilance and willingness. If you practice good #mentalhygiene you can at least decide if you want to hop on the Pain Train rather than realizing that you've been on it going nowhere for a while. 💎

Not more than 8 years ago (I’m 43 yrs old), I didn’t trust men any further than I could throw them. As a young boy I took on that I had to be better than other men to let them in, I couldn’t let them see what I was hiding, a scared little boy abandoned and betrayed by his father, seeking identity and validation. Instead I surrounded myself with the nurturing and validating energy of powerful females to mask the truth - in the absence of brotherhood, I was giving away my powerful masculine energy in exchange for security and companionship. My power was slowly draining out of me. 
This past weekend, 25 men trusted me and my warrior brothers with their lives, their secrets and shadows. They stepped into our sacred container and onto the battlefields of their pain and fear to touch their deepest wounds and re-connect with their masculine power. Today, 25 more men stand shoulder to shoulder in a circle with thousands of other men around the world. What has been done for thousands of years in rites of passage and initiation is being done still today, giving men the tools and awareness to embody the kind of man they want to be, the kind of men their loved ones and this world today so desperately need. 
This brotherhood is the ManKind Project. A global non-profit organization that is helping men touch their deepest shadows, unearth their buried gold and empower each other to be the amazing men they truly are. This brotherhood embraces all religions, all races, and all sexual orientations. We acknowledge each man as a sovereign being and support him in discovering and completing his mission in life.  This brotherhood showed me that men could be trusted, that they are also nurturing and loving in addition to brave and strong. For me the pain of abandonment and the story of betrayal no longer rule my life, I have forgiven my father and stand with him as a man amongst men. This work helped me heal my relationship with my father and most importantly with myself. @themankindproject #nwta #joinus #mkp #shadowwork #hawaii #vulnerabilityisstrength #brotherhood #riteofpassage #onemanatatime #trust #menofintegrity

the eternal, unchanging, ever-changing carnival of now
----x----
the light of  moon,
is a reflection of the sun,
but we are blind ,
to the dark side of the moon,
like we are blind to our shadow.  a field of love,
reveals everything that is not love,
light, dark, and shadow,
dark divinity penetrates shadow,
revealing a fleeting glimpse of feeling soul. 
you long to coax other parts of your soul,
that have fled from the experiences of being human,
back into holding presence,
for your human journey.

your soul has not signed up,
for this human journey,
to squeeze out a cheaper monthly mobile plan,
but to support your unique expression unfolding,
of the eternal, unchanging, ever-changing carnival of now. -Binoy

"We all have broken hearts. Every single one of us has had our heart broken at least once- in our families, from the loss or betrayal of a parent. Some had their hearts broken over and over again in terrible ways. When the heart of a child is broken, something inexpressible- and up to that moment whole and unquestioned- snaps. And nothing is ever the same. We spend the rest of our lives trying to protect ourselves from it happening again, trying to get someone to love us the way we, as that child, needed to be loved. We spend the rest of our lives eating or drinking or smoking or working so that we never have to go back there again. Never have to feel the unbearable pain of our broken hearts." ~Geneen Roth

This is my beaming smile when I get to work with my amazing clients!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I truly love what I do, so much that it's hard for me to describe the magic that takes place in the 'space' I go into while 'working' with you.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What do I do though? It's kind of mysterious, this whole 'kinesiology' thing. In short, it's a modality that goes deep, accessing the subconscious mind through the feedback of the body. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We use it to gain clarity and understanding around what is causing your current life and health issues, while supporting your system to release stress and activate self-healing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But what each kinesiologist brings to this 'method' is so very unique. Even if we are taught the same 'techniques', our own special gifts, talents and abilities begin to shine through and THIS is where I feel the magic happens.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As I have developed as a practitioner and connected ever more deeply to my self, the sessions that I offer have deepened and become more focussed, intuitive, and deeply supportive.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Together we can dive deep into the internal blockages that are creating problems in your life and physical body, shining a light on them and activating your own healing process. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
From there I give you practical advice to empower you in anchoring this new awareness into your life, as well as individualised practices to support you in your healing.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you're ready for the deep inner work, to get to the core of what is holding you back, to unravel another layer and take another step towards the life you truly desire, I would LOVE to work with you.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

This is my beaming smile when I get to work with my amazing clients! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I truly love what I do, so much that it's hard for me to describe the magic that takes place in the 'space' I go into while 'working' with you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What do I do though? It's kind of mysterious, this whole 'kinesiology' thing. In short, it's a modality that goes deep, accessing the subconscious mind through the feedback of the body. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We use it to gain clarity and understanding around what is causing your current life and health issues, while supporting your system to release stress and activate self-healing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But what each kinesiologist brings to this 'method' is so very unique. Even if we are taught the same 'techniques', our own special gifts, talents and abilities begin to shine through and THIS is where I feel the magic happens. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As I have developed as a practitioner and connected ever more deeply to my self, the sessions that I offer have deepened and become more focussed, intuitive, and deeply supportive. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Together we can dive deep into the internal blockages that are creating problems in your life and physical body, shining a light on them and activating your own healing process. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ From there I give you practical advice to empower you in anchoring this new awareness into your life, as well as individualised practices to support you in your healing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you're ready for the deep inner work, to get to the core of what is holding you back, to unravel another layer and take another step towards the life you truly desire, I would LOVE to work with you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I currently have spaces available for sessions at my Palm Beach clinic on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Check out my website for more info {link in bio} or get it touch to book in! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Danni x ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📩 innertruthkinesiology@gmail.com 📲 0410629158 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #kinesiology  #healing  #sacredgifts  #soulwork  #energywork  #palmbeach  #goldcoast  #holisticpractitioner  #holistictherapies  #lightwork  #shadowwork  #innerwork  #selfhealing  #empowerment 
Day 18, #theoctobertarot 
My Sins II: Greed - Desire - Dishonesty
~~~
If I were to make a past-present-future draw, these are the cards that would tell the story like I see it..
10 of Wands, taking on too much, trying and trying but not really getting anywhere.
6 of Swords, wanting to leave it all behind, to find something else, something with meaning and joy.
8 of Pentacles, starting new. Going back to school, learning a new profession and loving it.
~~~
But my sins? How are these my sins? Yes, I was greedy and got over-worked. Yes, I wanted to get away from it all. Yes, I’m worried if I’m any good at my future profession.
~~~
Realizing that all this time I’ve been actually blaming myself for these things, of not getting it right from the start, of having to start again and then feeling like a fraud, ”what if I’m not gonna make it?”. It just leaves me speechless.

Todays aphorism (a short sentence which expresses a larger truth or principle) -> "Egoist: A person more interested in himself than me." We often hear creatives say that they don't want to be perceived as selfish, arrogant, smug and so on... by their colleagues and that is one of the reasons why they don't want to go all in on the self-promotion that can help make their work visible and reach it's right audience. Promotion doesn't have to be that way. We work to support finding the calm, honest way to do promotion - by giving workshops, inspirational talks and walking the talk ourselves. #aphorisms #schooloflife #egoist #shadowwork #skyggearbejde #personalbrandingforartists #personalbrandingforcreatives #personalbranding #integrity #promotion #creativity #creatives #artist #inspirational

Me too. The Nicoletta Ceccolli Tarot seems to me like the perfect deck for exploring our wounds, vulnerabilities, and wild strengths. Ace of Cups: we are not playthings. Parts of us freeze up a little, with every violation, big and small. This is not an acceptable condition of living while female. We must hold our frozen selves close, as integral parts of who we are. We must also recognize that our stories, though different, are linked. Let us make space for the experiences of other women who are made to be smaller, and stand up for their right to complete, independent  huaminity. Queen of Wands: Our enemies are scared. And well they should be. We will no longer hide parts of ourselves to flatter the egos of others. Use #metootarot if you're interested in exploring these ideas through #tarot.

Mum, Why don't I work with my cards more?
.
I'm torn between spending time in private introspection and seeking deep secrets, and getting public recognition and satisfaction from sharing my interests and ideas with others.
.
Facebook is a curse. Instagram and YouTube are pleasant but all too easy distractions.
.
That's part of it. But I know there's another side to it. Acceptance is the first step...

From "TRIGGER WARNING: Shadow Work":
This entry is nothing more than angry venting.  It really has no value to anyone but me, but I am practicing allowing myself to be human and express all of my emotions, including my anger.  It's there if you want to read, but I don't really recommend it, especially if you're sensitive, easily triggered, easily offended, or going through a tough time of your own.  I'm trying to work through my anger so I can release it.

Shadow. Where is it hiding? How is it directing our lives? 
Tree of life - DISCONNECTED FROM REALITY, ILLUSION
Emotions - DIRTY, NOBODY 
Maybe our shadow makes us feel dirty, feel like we are a nobody. We disconnect from reality (in which the shadow exists) and live in the illusion that everything is ok.

#metoo - this movement has been powerful for me. Both because it demonstrates how the assertion of male dominance is still pervasive in this society, and because it has forced me to revisit some particularly painful memories and experience again, the emotions that arise alongside them. For all of us who wear the invisible chains of these past traumas, from times when we were attacked or disempowered, we know too well that these chains can ache and sting and scrap us until we are raw with fear, shame, and isolation. However, we also know that for better or worse, we are not alone. By lifting our individual abuse into the collective light, we look at our pains head-on, say 'I will face you.' We diminish their grip by exposing our wounds and know that together 'We are healing. We are strong. We are courageous.' We women of Earth are writing our own books and we will not be defined by the times the pen was taken from our hands. No. We will stand strong and weaken the weight of these chains each time we speak our truth or let ourselves heal. For every time we go through the exposure and healing of the pain in our shadows, we grow stronger. We grow wiser. We grow together. #Blessedbe 📍#pnw // 📷 by the kindest of men, @playsol

There's something about escaping urban environments for a time that makes returning, readjusting, an exhausting process. My raw sense of self and ideas are often immediately questioned in this ever-changing, ever-challenging environment. The things I learned are put to the test; the shadows glaring obvious. Who I am and want to be is hard to actualize in this space for me.. Anyways, #theillesttarotchallenge has Day 17 about how I can show gratitude for the blessings in my life and these lessons. The 5 of Swords is a card I know well, and its reverse tells me that in these challenging encounters and exchanges there are lessons to be learned, and things to be grateful for. My self doubt can be diminished with each one. I'm not to dread these uncomfortable conversations, but be open to the gifts that each one may bring.

An incredible storm tore through the town this morning, downing trees and power lines before clearing with rainbows and sun shiney leaves dressed in autumn. 
My partner and I walked along the river and found the spawning channels finally full of water and marvelled at what had become such a beautiful day before I came home to dig up my garden treasures in prep to move house. 
With hands and feet in the rich soil it came to me that while this is the time of dying off, of wild times changing our life's landscapes - here I was in the calm of a storm collecting unexpected sprouted hope along with well established goodness - a second harvest or a moment seized if you will. It reminded me in a tangible way about last night's group Shadow Work that we held - how a foray into the dark scary places brings forth such incredible golden nuggets. It reminded me of how many stepped into supportive ways of being this weekend just as the wheel of the seasons turns us closer to the darkest part of the year. It made me think also of the brave women posting #metoo - some only just recognizing it applies to them after all - followed by the plethora of men pledging actionable steps, boldly and vulnerabily seeking self healing with #ididit. It's pure golden light right when we thought the storm couldn't get worse. It's rainbows despite darkening skies. It's new shoots in a decaying garden. Just like my day in ordinary reality.

Practicing what one preaches. When holding space one of my main objectives is that it is SAFE. That being said it is interesting the convo a yoga teacher has with the self to try and justify practicing on an injury. #egocheck. I tell my students to listen to their bodies. Really listen to the information.. the clues.  Even tho I REALLLLLY wanted to practice today.. I didn’t. I gave my wrist the time to just be. Heal. And of course all the natural assistance internal and external of Holistic supplements and topicals.  Learning even more about the wrists now. And as a soccer chronic ankle destroyer.. go figure the ball of the wrist is where the strain is.. same as my ankles.  Lymph and fascia massage, elevation, and rest. (Fml!!) 😉

Today I got off work later than I wanted. There were things I had to do. I felt pissed off and frustrated. After playing Tom Petty and letting myself tear up, "Comfortably Numb" by Pink Floyd came on and I turned it up full blast. More than ever before, I felt the dark shadows in Roger Waters voice - "Hello... Is there anybody in there"? I lost my shit and screamed at the top of my lungs three times. God,  it felt good to let myself have that moment. -
You know, there are much worse things than getting off of work a half hour late. There are. I recognize that it is trivial. But I also recognize when I am triggered from something and instead of stuffing it down, I let myself fucking feel it. My frustration and anger tonight was from something much deeper.I've stuffed down my emotions for a LONG time and I've realized how unhealthy it is. No more repressing emotions and shaming myself that "it's wrong to feel this way, I need to be positive right now or I'm gonna attract shitty things". This is a surefire way to not only repress those emotions but to ignore our shadow self that we ALL have. This is spiritual bypassing. We DONT dwell here and let it define us, but we embrace it, feel into it and EXPLORE it.. the pain, the darkness, the shadow of us. This is not easy work but it's healing work. -
There is dark with light everywhere, and it exists within us too. The yin and the yang. The moon and the sun. It's not all love and light all the time and embracing our shadow is important. Embracing that at times we can get jealous, ragefull, depressed, crazy, etc and being okay with that. It exists with the happy, driven, passionate and excited. We must embrace our whole selves and when we do that, without apologizing, the real transformation and magic happens. We don't use spiritual bypassing, but we start to let ourselves feel and tap into the shadows from a non judgemental standpoint, and ask where it is coming from and what it is trying to teach us. How we can grow and transform from it?  Where are we not living authentically? How we use it as fuel?  It's learning and acceptance, one day at a time. Loving our whole self. Moving into authenticity and out of hiding.

Day 17 of #theoctobertarot challenge hosted by @lionharts. Where can I be more rational?
📒
The Ace of Wands from the Druidcraft tarot. Pretty straight forward here. My enthusiasm for my creative projects can really sweep me away sometimes. I cam see where applying some rational thought might supply guidance. I could go further but I'm keeping the rest to myself. ⭐
This card was so easy I opted for a second to just make sure I was getting it right. This when the Ace of Swords popped out as if to say, "Yeah, you got it right."

#currentenergies 💫Mars opposition Chiron and Saturn square Chiron.💫SEE THE WOUND AND ACCEPT IT. Mars aspecting Chiron along with Saturn is forcefully showing you the wound and making you accept it. Sorry not sorry energy. I know so technical. Chiron is currently in retrograde and has been for several months now in Pisces. Chiron was the son of Kronos (Saturn) in Greek Mythology. In very ancient times, Chiron, the Wounded Healer, was originally a god of healing. In later mythology, as a teacher of heroes and an oracle, he survived as one of the centaurs. These wild creatures, half man and half horse, were not noted either for their sensitivity, or their intelligence and represented mankind's attachment to the lower animal passions. In modern astrology, he stands for the deep karmic wounds in the subconscious that we have come to this life to heal. Chiron can be a scapegoat type energy. Martyr or victimhood. Ever heard "hurt people hurt people" well yeah that's your Chiron. Everyone comes into this life with Chiron in their chart. On the flip side, it also carries one very huge gift. ACCEPTANCE. Chiron is hard pill to swallow because we carry it throughout our life time. Acceptance is us going forward with our life understanding the wound and being able to face it when it comes up. Like okay awesome I came into this life with a wound in my soul. So I just what live with it? Yeah. You do. Chiron is evident in our early childhood. We see it in painful situations and it sticks with us labeled as trauma in this life but we unknowingly carried it into this lifetime with our soul whether through past lives or ancestral pain in our DNA. To deny our pain is to deny our healing. A huge part of healing is acceptance and being a witness to your own pain. Chiron offers deep transformation and wisdom. Flip this polarity and be the Heal - Healed - Healer. Trust and accept. 🦋 Art by @theuniversal_  #chironinpisces  #alchemy #oneness #omnism #shadowwork #collectiveconsciousness #evolution #alchemy #sacredgeometry #higherself #dnaactivation #kundalini #chakras #astrology #thecosmicnomad #innerwisdom #dnaactivation #cosmicenergies  #lightcodes #fifthdimension
#currentenergies  💫Mars opposition Chiron and Saturn square Chiron.💫SEE THE WOUND AND ACCEPT IT. Mars aspecting Chiron along with Saturn is forcefully showing you the wound and making you accept it. Sorry not sorry energy. I know so technical. Chiron is currently in retrograde and has been for several months now in Pisces. Chiron was the son of Kronos (Saturn) in Greek Mythology. In very ancient times, Chiron, the Wounded Healer, was originally a god of healing. In later mythology, as a teacher of heroes and an oracle, he survived as one of the centaurs. These wild creatures, half man and half horse, were not noted either for their sensitivity, or their intelligence and represented mankind's attachment to the lower animal passions. In modern astrology, he stands for the deep karmic wounds in the subconscious that we have come to this life to heal. Chiron can be a scapegoat type energy. Martyr or victimhood.

"Fake it till you make it"
They say.
How many of us
Have been faking
For so long
That all we've acheived
Is making an enemy 
Of ourself
To ourself.
--------------------------------.
Integrate ego into your being. Its separateness from the self is an illusion.
