And I honor this vessel, this body. I honor this heart and these hands. My soul works through this body and for this life I am grateful and life is grateful for me. ~I am grateful for You~ ☄💚🎶🌌🔥 #RUMI #IAMLOVE #GRATITUDE #MINDBODYSOUL #GOWITHIN

The glass of life tends to be half full when you find fun in the mundane.
In the end she became more than she expected. She became the journey,
and like all journeys, she did not end, she just simply changed directions and kept going. - @rmdrk
It is good to feel good. When we're not feeling good or out of alignment, look into the darkness and search for where you are resisting the light. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Resistance comes in many sneaky forms like judgement, separation, deflection, the need to be right over happy, and fear.
Bringing awareness to our patterns of resistance is the first step towards releasing them. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Then choose a better thought, and another one, and another one, until you feel the resistance start to lift. 🌻
Day 17 of the month long birthday celebration! Today I want you to think about letting go freely. There have been times in my life that I held on too tightly to people, places, circumstances, situations, relationships, jobs, ideals that clearly no longer served my highest and best good. I encourage you to take some time today and evaluate your life. All the choices you've made have brought you to this point in your life.
Call upon your intuition. Don't decide based upon what you think you should do. This is an exercise that requires you NOT to be shoulding all over yourself. As Rumi so aptly stated, what you seek is seeking you.
So clear the space in your life for the things you seek to move in freely. #lovealwayswins
Being spiritual doesn’t prevent you from facing dark times.
But it teaches you how to use the dark times as a tool for growth.
A void of course moon, like the moon is today from 6:48 am - 3:42 pm ET, is when the moon has made her last aspects to one sign, but hasn't yet made any aspects to the next sign. For all intents and purposes, she's not in any sign... and until she is, it's like a mini dark moon. Let your Tuesday begin slowly and internally. Follow through with projects you've already started, but be mindful about starting something new, or "loaning out" your time, energy, and vibes until later in the day when the moon moves into Libra. What's coming up for you during this dark moon moment? (If anyone knows the creator of this meme, and or the originator of this quote, please tag!!!! Thank YOU 🙏🏾 .) #lunarlogic

"Whether you think you can or you think you can't, either way you're right" Henry Ford 〰️ Your mindset truly is everything, are you using yours to it's fullest potential? If not todays the day to change that. Slow your thoughts. Write them all down. What is supporting you, what isn't? For those that are limiting look at why? What purpose do they serve? And what can you do or believe instead that can get you where you want to go. And then start, slowly, putting one foot in front of the other and making change TODAY 💖💕
Ok my loves, as most of you already know... the lake don't got no cell service! Hooray! Don't miss me too much! 😜✌🏻✨#seeyouinfivedays
Meditation is not set in stone to be sitting in a position for ages and trying desperately to quiet your mind 🌈 one of my favorite ways to quiet my monkey mind is getting out my favorite colors and losing myself on paper ✨ how do you meditate?

Take a moment to check in
How are you feeling right now?
Acknowledge any emotions or feelings
Breathe into them, feel them and give them space
Allow them to come... and go
Effortlessly in their own time
Without needing to force, resist or avoid them
Just as the morning light sweeps away the dark
Emotions come and emotions go
Always changing, transforming and shifting.
#meditation #emotions #comingsoon
Mantra on repeat: “I am present and grounded in the here and now.”
Hands up, who else needs daily reminders to be present and grounded in the moment? 🙋🏻♀️
Take a deep breath and close your eyes 💕 Repeat the above mantra at least 3 times out loud or silently in your mind 💕 Take another deep breath and open your eyes.

I'm so grateful for this beautiful country we live in. I will never get over the beauty of places like this.
You can't really see, but I was heavily pregnant with Indy in this photo and was camping in a pretty basic tent 😂😭 It was worth it though for the peace and tranquility 🙏 Can't wait to take Indy back here soon 3 years later!
What do i do as a therapist, teacher and songwriter? In essence I am guided to MOVE you and give you an experience...of your self, of your soul, of your divine path.
That is what I do because that is who I BE.
I'm devoted to my own path every step of the way...and as a therapist the beauty of my work is in staying beside you on yours. Walking with you...in your world..."as if" it were my own.
I am not the expert in the equation. You are.
No one can feel what it feels like to be you. That's why person-centred therapy is so transformative.
As a therapist you show me how it feels to be you and I enter into those feelings with you...i attune myself until you let me know I'm approximately close or getting there with my understanding.
I am devoted to being with you in it, not in it with you...that distinction changes lives.
Truly getting to know you, truly getting you is what creates miracles in our work.
To be seen and heard. To be believed and prized. To be embraced and held. To be honoured and valued. To be witnessed and unconditionally loved. To be in conscious connection with your ineffable grandeur...oh yes... In therapy we choose to cross a threshold together and infusing our journey with The Labyrinth is supercharging the process - this IS the ultimate spiritual tool to calm your mind and call your soul and i want to show up and show you how it can rock your world!
How's your life path feeling at this moment? Are you still trying to fix stuff? Figure stuff out or find your way?
What if I said you don't need to do that anymore? What if there was something you could devote yourself to instead?
Because here's the thing.
You are already on your life path. Look down at your feet if you're walking...can you see it? Look around you if you're sitting down, see it? THIS IS IT.
You're On it, your in it.
But I don't want you to take my word for it! I want to invite you to be moved to experience it with me.
These are seriously charged times, our path and the need to walk it - to embody The Way has never been so necessary.
Use this Mission Mantra? I'm Well On My Way.
Your wellness and your way matter. to me. to the world.
From The Threshold, Clare
My first guest on Casting Wonder, is Fatai.
Fatai is a phenomenal artist, musician, singer and songwriter. More than that, she is a phenomenal human being. I mean that with my WHOLE HEART.
Fatai's artistry has been witnessed by millions of people around the world through her online videos, her EP, 'Undone', and on her tours.
In this unedited conversation, Fatai speaks about her life growing up and the deep love that she has for her family. She walks us through her journey with music and one of the most profound moments in the mountains that shaped her life. She shares incredible advice about how to find your voice; not only as a singer, but as a human being. She also shares a little about her journey with Willow Creek Community Church and tells us what worship really feels like, for her.
Plus, so much more!
We tie together our conversation with my closing questions, followed by a very special blessing from Fatai.
Believe me when I say...listen until the very end! You'll be so glad that you did.
People always ask me, "Why do you charge such low prices for your products and services? Or they say to me, "You should put your prices up, you're charging too cheap. You are worth more!" Yep, I know what I create is good quality and I know I help others and make a difference in their lives. I know I am worth it.
The personal story I'm about to share with you over on my website about my CFS became an empowering moment in my life and is exactly why I do it. I had only told my husband up to this point how truly scary and difficult this life-changing time of my life really was for me. And now it's time to share it with the world.
It changed things for me in a such positive way that what I learnt still influences the way I treat myself now, how I simply go about my day and the way I react to difficult situations and people. It helped me discovered tools to help and guide me through whatever my day may bring.

Waiting for the 'right' time to start? Or for everything to line up perfectly? ⏰💫
You might be waiting a while... ⌚🤦🏼♀️
You may have heard this before, but I will say it anyway just in case... there is no 'right' time for anything 🤷🏼♀️
Have you waited for that perfect moment to jump in on something new... waited, and waited a little more... and then never ended up doing it?
Jump right in now & figure it out along the way.
I'm a perfectionist and this idea often has me like... 🛑I'M NOT READY! That restricted feeling & the negative self-talk that goes with it... anyone else get that?
This past week has taught me... you don't need to be ready... you just need to be able to figure it out.
And what better way than to just do it 💪🏻?! 💜
Get used to the vibration of joy ☺
If your body has been used to being mostly in the lower vibrational states, it’s bound to feel uncomfortable staying in joy for long, ironical as it might seem. Even your mind would find it uneasy to stay in a state of higher vibration when it has been used to lower vibrations for so many years.
It can produce feelings of guilt, discomfort, insecurity and general uneasiness about orienting with the vibration of joy on consistent basis, and would want to cling to lower vibrational states as the more familiar ground
The mind can also justify its need to stay in lower vibrational states by claiming that it’s not prudent to be oriented with joy all the time, and that it’s not spiritual enough or practical enough or some other reason. Even though joy is the natural vibration of your being, the mind has gotten so used to being in lower vibrational states, all the time, that it finds it “unnatural” to be joyful for most part of your waking hours.
Joy is just a label to define the feeling of a “aliveness” within yourself. Aliveness is inherent to life energy, and if you don’t experience it in your being it’s because of the cloud of negative energy that’s inhibiting your natural vibration. However, it takes time for the body (both physiologically and mentally) to adapt to this natural vibration, when it has been used to thriving on lower vibrational states of being.
You will need to get used to the vibration of joy, and allow your body/mind to slowly adapt to it (on daily basis), just like astronauts are trained in labs to get their bodies used to low gravity.
How often do you feel joyful? Do you find it challenging to maintain this state? Share your experiences to help others live more joyfull. ❤

The true purpose of the yogic path is to ultimately improve yourself.
The world cannot heal unless we heal ourselves first.
To go within and understand Atman (The soul) is to move closer to union with Brahman (The ultimate divine source). Human suffering is caused by Māyā and Samskara which is illusion or false perception, combined with conditioning or impressions on the mind.
The beauty of the yogic path is that through understanding, action and mindfulness we continuously move closer to the divine and slowly the human suffering falls away. There is still suffering, but your attachment to it decreases.
There is so much suffering in the world. Not just physical but so many people struggle daily with their mental health, or just a lack of joy and meaning in their life.
I believe yoga as a lifestyle and belief system can literally change lives and heal on a deeper level than any worldly therapy ever could. That's not to say the therapies available don't have an important place; they do. But for me, yoga was the only thing that helped me to understand my soul and live with peace and love in my heart 🙏💓
