The Seed... The Seeker

My beautiful friend Amaris shared a poem at our last Ignited Voices about The Seed.

The seed is pushed down into dirt and shit, encased in a hard shell, drowned and left to sit with itself. 

Alone. In Darkness.

But from this time underground the seed splits and out emerges in transformation. Ultimately breaking through to stand tall, strong and beautiful...and to be admired by the world.  

Have you been in this place before? The place where you couldn't see the way out? 

Are you there now?

What stands in your way for you to bust through that shell and up out of the dirt?

I have recently experienced this period of deep introspection, digging, facing doubts and slaying gremlins (as my life coach, Alex Milaychev calls them). 

I recently went through the Seedling phase... and I came out on the other side with a further purpose and direction. More to come... oh so much more to come. Thank you for being on this journey with me. 

I love you. 

 

Falling in Love with My Body

More and more I am loving the act of dancing for the expression of it, for the love of it, for the feels... My journey of reclaiming feeling good in my body began a few years ago when I started teaching a class called Shakti Flow.

Through the regular practice of meeting myself on the mat. Showing up.

Playing in my body by with different dance. 

Challenging my body by with fitness. 

Caring for my body with yoga.

What happened and continues to happen is not just a transformation of my body, but a transformation of how I feel in and about my body. Strengthening the connection and love for the greatest gift and tool that I have. I am so curious about this work. Much love to everyone struggling with loving their body. It can change and you CAN free yourself. I love you.

Booty Revolution

I am DECLARING a BOOTY REVOLUTION

Mission: to free the hips, release the divine feminine Shakti energy, to heal each other, to feel good, and to save the world. 

When you move your body, you feel good. 

When you feel good, you move your body.

When you MOVE your body, you strengthen connection.

When you strengthen connection, healing happens.

You see, because we move to feel ourselves, to heal ourselves, to celebrate ourselves. When we shed the layers of giving a fuck to feel within, we shed the layers of giving a fuck in the other areas in our lives. When we love ourselves fiercely, we have the capacity to love each other fiercely. When we are strong we are empowered. Body, Mind, Heart and Soul.

All of these things will strengthen with practice. 

And that practice, is Shakti Flow

And as Booty Pirate Doris says,"Booty Be For Shakin'!"

 

 

Proud of these Ladies!

You are going to get my truth here...to the best of my ability. Always. 

Yesterday, I had a rough day. I am OK, but I have a couple of people close to me that are going thru some GNARLY shit. I also am having a heavy period this time around. I don't know if it's the cosmos or what but I am feeling so intensely. Good and Bad. Joyful and Sad.

Yesterday was heavy. I am sitting with grief and sadness. Today, still grief and sadness mixed with hope and love. 

This morning I woke up rested (thankfully). After my class today I saw this posted on Facebook: 

Heart. Explosion.

Then, a few minutes later I see this:

DOUBLE HEART EXPLOSION PUDDLE ON THE FLOOR 😭

Whew. I have never felt so validated in what I am trying to do with this space, with my class, with my LIFE. Thank you ladies for these words during an epically intense time. Please keep loving yourselves and each other. THIS IS HOW WE WILL HEAL THE WORLD.

 

I am here for you and you are here for me. I love you both so much.
