The world has enough hard people who have shut down their hearts to keep them ‘safe’ already - unfortunately in shutting down, you also shut out love, joy, peace and connection. And every human needs connection. People do this to mistakenly protect themselves from danger, but the person it does most damage to is yourself. Open up your heart a little (to the right people) and let a little sunshine back into your heart ❤️ xxx
💜I BOW💜 .
” For all the times I could not see.
When the illusion of separation was to thick. .
For all the years I have planted My feet into this earth ,and all I wanted was to belong. .
I could not see.
Indeed, I could not see.
Because how could I ? .
Newly born into the embrace of mother earth.
My eyes were to fresh to comprehend this worlds heavy, lushious colours.
Out of this world trying to fit into this world.
Forgetting that we already belong.
So if your eyes are to fresh to see the wisdom behind every colour, the words behind the silence, the solace in your tears.
Your eyes are to fresh to see what is there. .
So I bow in front of the unknown, having compassion with my clouded vision.
I am loved.
I belong, as we all belong.”
-Rebecca Kjernell .
Where is there magic or wonder in your life?
For me of course there are big things, but also small things.
Like daily hugs
Or dried perennials. .
It doesn't take much. And when those things compound... well that's just glorious! ✨✨✨💖💖💖

Growth..... 2 leaves representing stages of endings and beginnings and acorn seeds representing the promise of something new and the continuation of life after an ending. We have planted seeds, they have germinated, and are now taking root. Just as one leaf prepares for the end, a new leaf brings in new energy and promise of a new experience.... When something is removed, it is also replaced (929). Growth is both painful and powerful. We can flow with the changes, bid our good byes, show appreciation for the experience... Or we can hold tighter, stress on how to maintain the same energy that no longer vibes with us, and ultimately lose out on regeneration and the beauty of having something new, someone new or even just a new perspective. This card shows us that growth is beautiful, connected, and apart of life’s process. Go with the flow....Go with the growth... and Marvel at all the newness that has been brought about due to the changes that we’ve made... if you don’t see it yet, just know that it soon will reveal itself, just as an autumn leaf confirms the close of Summer and the beginning of the Autumn season! #divinefeminine#triplegoddess#sagittarius#oracle#astrology#tarot#intuitive#mage#wisewoman#iphonesia#messageoftheday#melanin#wicce#goddess#highpriestess#celebratelife#newbeginings#almost2018#purposefulliving#intentionallife#whatsyourstory#blackgirlmagic#shaman
I've had this owl feather for a little while but didn't know it was owl until recently. I was almost home from the Melbourne MBS last weekend when I saw an owl on the side of the road. I stopped and she flew across the front of my car. She was a Bookbook owl. When I arrived home I heard Bookbook close by in the gum trees. I had been talking with @scottalexanderking about owl and Crone over the weekend as a totem for my GATEWAY TO THE CRONE work..... When I looked at photos of Boobook I realised that she had already gifted me a feather.... Reading the signs offered by nature is an important part of my journey..... I LOVE it.

Overeating and stress
Our body reacts to stress by turning into fight or fly response: our extremities are activated, blood pressure rises. The result is we can't stay still, we become agitated. In reality we are all stressed most of the time, but the level of stress varies.
The danger here is that we don't recognise we are under stress. Because often we don't see immediate danger/stress factor and we are busy doing something as we live life unaware of our feelings.
We reach for a piece of cake or open Facebook or masturbate or go for any other activity which takes us away from the uncomfortable feeling inside us. This is the easiest way to numb the feeling, to anaesthetise it.
Overeating is an addiction (like alcoholism, overworking, overshopping 😉, etc) and comes from the original trauma in childhood. As such traumas are normally in our subconscious mind, it's difficult to discover and hence to heal it.
We all have these traumas and hence are subject to addiction. Our addiction levels vary as additions themselves.
How to deal with overeating:
✔️ identify when you start feeling like eating and see if you are hungry
✔️ before taking a piece of chocolate PAUSE
✔️ and take a deep breath, drop your attention to your body
✔️ see if you could feel this uncomfortably feeling and if you can keep feeling it, while breathing deeply. Be very mindful
✔️keep breathing until the feeling dissolve
If you can't feel or can't take attention to your body, just do everything you want, BUT VERY SLOWLY! Paying attention to every moment, reaching out for this piece of chocolate taking your time, chewing it slowly, tasting it, feeling the texture.
The healing is in dealing with the root of the problem: trauma itself. By giving our presence to the uncomfortable feeling is a way to start a healing process.
Did you notice overeating is present in your life?
Wow! Loved seeing this post! @carllentz Now This is a radical way to love and a radical way to lead. To some ..It can seem like the “best” path to follow is what the crowd is doing. You might share your messages and gifts to the world the same way others are. Which is ok. But what excites me is what’s at the edge of what everyone else is doing. What excites me is creating a new normal. Not desperately coming from a place of needing to be understood,validated and appreciated by all but in shifting others (including myself) into a more authentic, loving and powerful existence. Where we all can be apart of reshaping the current ways we relate, do business and live with one another. ✨
When I first started sharing my medicine, I would wait for the recipient to tell me it hadn’t worked. It didn’t matter that I had already tested it, and then forced P to test it - I was still convinced my offering was going to fail. The upside to this train wreck of a thought process is the constant amazement when Cannabis never let me down. Over the years, as I’ve learned to trust in her, I’ve learned to trust in myself, and in turn, trust the things that I craft. I’d be lying though, if I said a small part of me doesn’t still expect someone to report back that my medicine failed. .
Right now, I desperately need Cannabis to do her thing, in a way I’ve never needed her before. Despite all the research I’ve done, all the experiences I’ve had and witnessed, I’m so fucking scared to trust her with this. I’m scared to trust myself to work with her in this way. This isn’t a situation where either of us can fail. .
There have been in-betweens to the anxiety, moments - sometimes even, full days - where the necessary trust is unwavering, rooted deep in my heart. On these days I openly offer immense gratitude for my secret weapon, the third amigo in a three punch beat down. And on the days where anxiety is more than I think I can handle, I transport myself back to Cedar Song, to the fire circle under the Full Moon, and hear our voices so strong as we all sang together:
“I am a strong woman, I am a wise woman, I am love and my soul will never die.”
