When I think of shadow work, much of it comes from the pain of our past. Stored in our subconscious minds, if we don’t allow ourselves to come from the perspective that the world is unfolding for us, not to us, we allow ourselves to reclaim our power back. To me, this is what sovereignty is all about. When things arrive that may not be all unicorns and rainbows, we can see it as an opportunity to be the alchemist and choose love, recognizing that the icky stuff is arising to be healed, forgiven, and transmuted to help serve the highest benevolence.
My love of plant medicines has given me the opportunity to work with Gaia to heal my body, mind + soul. Turning to the yogi principals and teachings that have been passed down, this is me taking responsibility for my life and my health on a sovereign + conscious level. Lately, I’ve been hearing the call to be drinking more golden mylk!
When you take on this role of a spiritual teacher, you are constantly helping others. This is all I’ve known. I had to push away the people I love the most because deep down I knew I couldn’t give them the love I genuinely wanted to give them because I needed to learn to be selfish and love myself first. Growing up a people pleaser and in the service industry has been the greatest blessing and curse at the same time. I love to give, but it got to the point that I wasn’t giving to myself as much as I was giving to others.
One of my personal go to self-care practices I’ve grown to not only love, but I’ve become obsessed with is Oil Pulling. This practice is my favorite way to start my day. As part of my daily morning ritual, I clear away the yuck of yesterday and live with the intention to start my day with a clean tongue and a clean slate as I recognize that my words are power.
Up until now, we’ve grown up in a society believing that something or someone outside of us is the one that is going to “fix” us. We travel to distant places, visit healers, participate in ceremonies just so we can be released from the prison we perceive. No doubt, there is a deep yearning right now. While people love to say that spirituality is a “trend,” there is a reason why the spiritual movement has been rapidly growing.
People want freedom. People want to heal. People want to connect with their divinity. People. Want. Answers.
Read my story on how I took back my power and recognized the truth that I am medicine I’ve been waiting for. I refused surgery and ended up becoming more connected with my body than ever before by releasing what no longer serves through the physical form of gallstones.
As a Priestess who has heard the call to help empower the Divine Feminine, when I came across this beautiful piece from Sophie Bashford, my heart soared. As women, we have heard the call to awaken to our truth and to embrace our light. Going forth, we stand our ground with confidence and conviction. We know our worth and we are fully aware that we deserve the same amount of love we put out into the world.
Vibrate the Cosmos. The Cosmos shall clear the path. Sometimes we get stuck in a rut, unaware of the vibrations we are radiating ourselves. We feel lost, alone, stuck, unmotivated, and just straight up out of sync with our lives and the life we want to live. When this happens, often times we are unaware of what energy we are putting out. Times like this call for an overhaul on our energetic being. It is time for us to get out of our egoic mind and gravitate towards our authentic self through pure awareness.
In today’s day and age, this sutra explains it all… understand through compassion or you will misunderstand the times. As we have recently entered this new age, an Age of Aquarius, we need compassion more than ever.
When the time is on you, start, and the pressure will be off. In this life, we are all in this together. We are all here to share our unique talents and gifts to the world. The best and essentially the only way to do that is if we embrace our authenticity. We are all tested to see how we will handle the situation that is in front of us. Some of us will procrastinate, others will focus on their fear-based minds, but those who will conquer times are those who are present with what is right in front of them.
