Without labeling a moment good or bad, know beyond the label, that circumstance you actively choose to be part of. You’ve matched your vibration to it.
That moment carries information, meant only for you, created by you. ✨
So, I've been totally MIA.
I've been growing through some things!! And doing some personal development & strategizing. Please excuse the mess on the page as I am busy re-branding & switching up the focus a bit.
Stay tuned for even more amazing content.. And thanks for your patience! 💚💖😜
This quote by Yung Pueblo is so true and puts such a positive twist on something that can seemingly be negative at the time❤
Looking back, some of our greatest accomplishments and things we’re most proud of came on the heels of sadness. .
For Gina: getting a second degree as a nurse in my late 20s was big decision for me at the time and one I debated for years before making the leap. The motivation came after I got laid off less than 6 months after accepting a new job. Talk about sadness bringing on transformation! Had that never happen I'm not sure I would of pursued my nursing career when I did.
For Suzanne: going through my divorce was one of the hardest things I’ve ever been through. I believe in marriage and the fact that it didn’t work made me feel like a failure and left me with a broken heart. However, the decision I made to leave pushed me into a path of self discovery. It taught me about grace, the ability to let go and the undeniable fact that I always land on my own two feet. It led me to the now, love of my life. .
Many times it takes an outside or drastic event like these to force a change. We think back now and we’re so grateful for these moments for the transformations that they led to. This reminder can help us stay optimistic during tough times - because you never know what positive changes will come from them😘.

Hey, come here.
I’ve got something to share.
Want to know a 🔑 to staying motivated???
If your training doesn’t interest you, it won’t engage you, and it definitely won’t encourage you to be mindful, and it will become increasingly difficult for you to keep going. If your training has become another box on the list to complete then you’re in the danger zone. To remain motivated, you must be interested in what you’re doing. Isn’t it funny the key to success in your health, in your wellness, and in your fitness lies in the training of the organ resting between your ears. Yet this is the one we try to turn off, and quiet, and disengage the most often? I try and keep my toolbox for myself and for my clients as varied as possible. We evolve as we train as should our resources and access to different disciplines. This concentrated work of the SteelMace, inversions and nunchucks is thoroughly enjoyable and hard and rewarding and above all keeps me motivated. This qualifies as a “workout” I spent 10 minutes of focused work on each discipline. No checkboxes here and neither should there be on YOUR list when comes to fitness and health. So next time your headed off to they gym ask yourself- Do I find this interesting and fun 😃?Or am I just checking the box😒? #fitness #fitfam #inversions #steelmace #nunchucks #evolve #motivation #training #strength #conditioning #mindful #focus #wellness #health #lifestyle #bodybuilding #body #strong #goals #mobility #trainer #chicago #liveloveevolve
My NEW program BEYOND THE VEIL IS UP!!!! 😂
I've been working up to this day for some time and I gotta honestly say that now that I am ready to bring it out I have such mixed feelings....The song that just came on - Leonard Cohen's song, “Hallelujah” - is definitely one aspect of how I am feeling - that. is...FOR SURE! 💙🤣🌀⚡😍🌟 however.... I would like to admit that another feeling is complete astonishment that this course is actually unfolding and becoming a reality....and to be COMPLETELY honest ...doubt, fear and nervousness.....😉 When Spirit calls and pulls you...well...you just gotta listen and keep moving forward 💜💞 Please check out my page, tell your friends, share!
Special thanks to my daughter Tessa Swackhammer for doing such an INCREDIBLE job of putting it together on my website 💜💜💜 www.incandescencehealing.com/courses/ https:// #magic #divinefeminine #goddess #earth #elements #priestess #teaching #ancientwisdom #witch #power #evolve #hamilton #hamont #teachersofinstagram

Simply grateful!!!! The Journey...
I didn’t intend to write about loss today, but a call from a close friend changed that. His brother just died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest. He had served in the military and struggled with depression, PTSD, and was separated from his wife and children. He had turned away from my friend and his family years ago but had recently initiated contact. My friend was hopeful their relationship could be rebuilt. Sadly, that’s no longer possible.
Having faced similar struggles, I understood why he would want to put a gun to his chest. Life is hard. I always wanted my daughter to have me in her daily life. I vowed to take on any amount of pain to ensure she will. I’ve spent many nights begging God to take away the hurt I’ve felt. He didn’t. He used it to shape me into a much better man instead, and I’m thankful for it. I’ve developed an appreciation for everyone that has come and gone in my life. They’ve all played a role in my evolution.
Our desire to love and be loved leads us to hold on tightly to what we desire most. We begin to sacrifice who we are to avoid feeling pain. I appeased my ex-wife’s abusive behavior and it had major repercussions. I eventually decided that I had to let go of her and focus on our daughter. I divorced her and for years she’s launched attack after attack to keep me from our daughter. I don’t take it personal. It’s a product of her mental health, and she’s just projecting her fears and insecurities on me. I don’t let it bother me, but I hurt for the pain she has inflicted on our daughter.
After getting sole custody and then having my daughter taken away again, I refused to let go. With an appeals court as the only path to undo this tragedy, it’s out of my control. I can only wait. Months of delays forced me to face the reality that it may be months or years before I see her again. Once I accepted that, my perspective and life changed. I’ll still fight for her, but it was time I turned my energy toward rebuilding my life and new relationships. I’ve been waiting years to feel this way. I just had to let go.
Walking away from or losing someone is difficult. Be patient with yourself and focus on your future. Brighter days await.

My dad: “sweetheart im so busy at work you know I can’t take you there. Besides, school will be near so no you won’t go”
Ladies and gentlemen I INTRODUCE YOU THE FUCKIN STORY OF MY LIFE
...want to hear about the time I let a lack of smart water in my fridge send me into a complete emotional breakdown?!🤡
I’m kind of occasionally psychotic. I let small details define larger pictures. I am sometimes afraid, sometimes brave, and sometimes uncontainable...but I am mostly all of it, all at once.💯
I’m also here.🖤

Back in my football days, in the hottest part of summer we would have two weeks of “two-a-day”’s.
Two full practices per day, plus a workout afterwards. It was agonizing.
The sun, the helmet that seemed to get tighter every day, the progressively heavier pads, all the plays and techniques to memorize... And of course the occasional play where you’d get the s**t knocked out of you.
But somewhere around day 10 of the 14-day stretch, something interesting happened... All of a sudden it couldn’t get any worse, and you developed full acceptance for the muscle soreness and mental fatigue.
Once you reached this place of inner acceptance, you could handle anything the rest of the practices brought your way.
Perhaps today, right now is your 10th day. Maybe right now you can find in yourself the courage to accept everything happening in your life for exactly what it is, and not fight it.
From this point further, you’re gliding with your life. Not fighting against it. And that’s where your true power lies.

Work in progress: update on Kelley's set. This is a practice piece. A trial run of the base pattern to get a feel for dimensions; as well as, a place to practice embroidery on knotwork. Heck, I'll even play with hand sewing the stones on here before I move to the final piece.
Pieces like this are a very important part of trying new things. It's SO worth the effort and materials to be able to have something to learn on where mistakes aren't a critical error.
The extra time spent here, pretty much pulls the stress out of a project like this.
Things I've already learned are: - there was no room to run black between color stripes. - I in fact CAN splice in and out multiple strands to increase the size of the nose band, which is cool. - the final draft of this set will be tapered down some for a sleeker bridle. - I used a bunch of scrap pieces toward the end of this piece to practice adding new cords in a seamless manner, because it happens now and then... so it's an important skill to brush up on.
That's about all I've got for you today, because my head's already onto the next phase, lol! More soon!

There’s many of different ways to look at anything you come across in life. Valuing the ability to see your obstacles from different angles allows you to multiply your odds of success tenfold. Having a unique enough perspective to consider different ones and change your own at will until it totally works for you is incredible. It takes a special human to correct their mistakes and do what it takes to be successful.
The words of Nelson Mandela after twenty-seven years of imprisonment. It really sends home the notion that although we may not recognize our progress on a day-to-day basis, it’s through this form of juxtaposition that we really grasp how far we’ve come.

The next big move.
For as long as I can remember I've always considered myself a mover and shaker. Can you relate?
Most of my life I've always been on the "what's next?" train. Jumping from one activity or chapter to the next. I like to be busy. I like to be working on multiple projects at one time. I like to flood my life with lots of interesting experiences and adventures. .
I'm usually juggling several committees, books and podcasts at a time. I'm always diving into personal development and spiritual growth activities. I also generally hold multiple jobs at any given moment.
I have to admit, that even though I've been working three jobs as a householder and "mother" I've been feeling somewhat idle. I can recognize when I need a change of scenery, a new project, something different. And, for nearly 2 years, I've continued to wake up every morning and ask, "What's my next big move?"
And, although I've been putting that question into the Universe daily, the answer is always, "Wait. Not yet. Pause. Breathe." And, as a mover and shaker, this answer has frustrated me to no end.
Have you ever felt like your life was somehow passing you by or like you were at a standstill? Have you felt like you were meant to be "doing" something else, but you just didn't know what or how to start?
Some days I wake up feeling like I'm wasting my time in multiple areas of my life. (I know, I'm not perfect. Negative thinking still shows it's ugly head occasionally.) And, although this is still something I'm working through, I got the best message last week that I wanted to share:
Your time is never wasted. Every step, every minute, every move, every lesson, is preparing you for what is next. Literally, EVERYTHING that happens is important for the next chapter in your life. Accept the present moment and your current situation as what is instead of wishing or waiting for what's next.
How's that for a message?
I carry a lot on this beautiful back of mine!!! Sometimes the weight is SOOOOO heavy I feel like collapsing! Then I think about being a teenage mom raising my son with many obstacle however 22 years later I’ve done an AMAZING job, graduating college for business receiving my AAB, struggling to pass my business law class, literally crying my way through massage school learning anatomy & physiology, failing my state broads the first time around. ALL avenues trying to better ME while I was living with PMDD... rough time, very rough! Still I manage to work a full time job for 10 years, start my own business, maintaining my business, raising two kids, and back in school again!! That back is STRONG! NOTHING will break it!! And I’m ready to put more on it to get to the TOP! Believe in YOU! Work on YOU! DO YOU!! And the rest will fall in order!!! #patientlywaiting
I love what I do, the people I meet and the sense of relaxation I provide to someone who has no clue how to do so!! #selfiecare #bestcare
The week between eclipses feels like we are crossing bridges... It’s the week when we realize we are halfway there and nowhere near it, and it doesn’t even matter where we are because we know we are on our way. What matters is how we feel about what we are experiencing, what matters is how we externalize our inner strength by living out of curiosity with our hearts wide open to what is to come and grateful for what has left us!
The past two years (since Aug 2016), the eclipses Leo-Aquarius, if integrated, have aligned us with our passions and allowed us to love and accept the factors that differentiate ourselves from the rest of individuals, you know, the aspects that make other people think or say we are “weird”. When each individual on this planet brings forth their authentic passion and feels proud of what makes them special, the collective will know and understand their totality, will see God in themselves and all around them.
The full moon in Aquarius next week will bring closure to a labeling that prohibited us to be authentic. Who are you aside from the groups/networks you belong to?
Love,Love 🎈 Val!
