self love

  • You will get stronger

    Life doesn't get easier, you get stronger

    It’s not about what’s happening around you on the outside, it’s about what’s happening on the inside of you, your internal world.

    You can deep dive underwater and still come up for air.

    It’s easy to be strong when life goes to plan.

    It’s easy to be strong when life is going the way you want.

    Real strength comes from braving the storms, riding the waves and withstanding the hurricanes. 

    Life doesn’t get easier, you get stronger.

    Your heart and soul

    What’s going on inside of you? 🌀

    Check in with your heart and soul, you know ❤️‍🔥

  • Honour your truth

    Honouring your inner truth

    Exercise the ultimate act of self-love, honouring your inner truth even when it is painful.

    This means walking away from and letting go of what no longer serves you.

    Maybe it’s a job, relationship or location.

    It’s breaking free from what boxes you in – the pressure of society, the weight of what other people think and your own beliefs.

    When everything falls away, one thing will always remain: the truth.

    It cannot be ignored.

    You can live in ignorance, but the truth won’t.

    There will be days when loving being yourself will be tough.

    Sometimes all you can do is love a tiny bit more than yesterday and that is more than enough.

    Sometimes growth means walking away

    Can you really hear yourself? Your soul; your true inner voice? Or are you weighed down by other voices: conditioning, programming, culture, the outside world.

    Honour your truth.

    That may be painful for others but you owe yourself the love and dedication you so willingly give to others.

    Sometimes life and growth means walking away 🌱

    Making space and letting go for a new door to open 🚪

    On the other side is everything you could’ve wanted and more, are you brave enough to open it?

  • I’m grateful for…

    I'm grateful for...

    I’m grateful for all that my heart feels.

    I’m grateful for the way it beats with pride and joy.

    I’m grateful in the way it floats with excitement and swells with tenderness.

    I’m grateful when it feels heavy and anchored.

    I’m grateful when it feels like it’s being crushed alive.

    I’m grateful when it swoons with delight and wonder.

    I’m grateful when it beats slowly and gently.

    I’m grateful when it races to the rush and thrill of it all.

    I’m grateful when it aches and I feel every time it bleeds.

    I’m grateful when it rushes off the cliff and suspends itself for a moment in time.

    I’m grateful because my heart reminds me I’m alive.

    Allow yourself to feel it all

    With all the emotions arising from the potent energies we’ve experienced; it is my hope that you let them flow like water.

    Allow yourself to feel it all.

    Every layer.

    Every shift.

    Every ounce.

    Be in the flow instead or resisting it.

    And then you will feel free… 🦋

    Scorpio Full Moon Lunar Eclipse Energy Update

    We’ve had the new moon solar eclipse in Aries last week and now we are heading into a lunar eclipse full moon with Scorpio (which happens to be my sign!).  This eclipse is linked to the previous one because it’s the perfect time to let go of anything that arose back then and is part of a long series of Taurus and Scorpio eclipses, in fact the second last marker in this journey that began in November 2021 and will end in October this year around my birthday too, so I’m all too well of the feelings and energies of this one. 

    Take a moment to reflect on what was unfolding in your life since and back in November 2021 to zoom out and shed light on the storyline that is being divinely created and orchestrated in your life for your highest growth and expansion. 

    Scorpio represents the south node which is karmic and the past therefore it can particularly stir up karmic relationships and situations, residuals that may have previously begun with the solar eclipse last week to fall away because it no longer serves you. Think of it as a spiritual karmic detox and purge. I’m personally really getting the download for anyone listening here to pay attention to karmic relationships whether that be romantic, family, colleagues or friends. 

    The solar eclipse is about new energy and beginnings whereas a lunar eclipses is about completion or moving into a new direction. The moon represents the subconscious and feminine, so one can expect this full moon eclipse to be emotionally charged in some way. Eclipses often reveal things and with Mercury Retrograde about, as well as another retrograde in Pluto, expect the unexpected. Expect wildcards and curveballs thrown at you. Who knows what information could arise to the surface that could catch you off guard or perhaps even shocked. This is to say, it’s not all negative! It could be life altering, positive news too. 

    It’s the perfect storm one could say because Pluto actually rules Scorpio, alongside co-ruler Mars. To dive deeper into the influence of Pluto think back to around the 22nd/23rd of March when Pluto moved into Aquarius for the first time in our lives! Pluto energy is very aligned with Scorpio so the usual suspect themes: destruction, death, rebirth, the subconscious and transformation. With it moving into Aquarius it also brings about the themes of change, innovation, freedom, liberation, equality and the collective.

    Both planes aren’t known for being shy, if anything they are bold and out there so expect the revelations, energy and feelings accompanying the moon to be the same. The major theme I see arising from this transit is it’s asking for us to let go and master the art of emotional alchemy. Again if your feelings and energies are all over the place, a full moon has a strong influence alone let alone a lunar eclipse which is the energetic equivalent of 10 full moons at once so yes your feelings may be magnified, your feelings may be intensified and it can be temporarily destabilising.  

    To tune into our emotions and intuition. To face our emotions and feel them instead of running away, repressing, ignoring and blocking as we’ve been conditioned to. To transform our pain into power, wounds into wisdom and grief into gold (yep took that line straight of my book the Great Unlearning). Our feelings aren’t to be feared, they can be incredible portals of transformation and springboards for creativity.

  • Welcome to the darkening of the light

    Dark & Light

    Welcome to the darkening of the light.

    Just like winter or the dark night of the soul, we need darkness to ultimately find the light.

    We need darkness as a veil to what is growing beneath the surface.

    What surfaces is your endurance to channel your crisis into change.

    It is time to surrender your heart and soul to the universe.

    Shed like a snake what no longer serves you.

    Let go and flow with where the steam of life wants you to go.

    Listen to the rhythm and beat of your heart.

    Surrender your soul to the alluring pull of what you desire.

    Release your fears and doubts, child of the universe.

    The stars and angels are always supporting you.

    You are exactly where you need to be right now.

    When the world is dark your inner light shines bright.

    Allow yourself to change...

    🎢 Life is a rollercoaster of experiences and emotions driven by the highest of highs and lowest of lows.

    The feels can be excruciating.

    To feel so deeply.

    Heartache and pain contrasted with liberation and ecstasy.

    From a spiritual point of view our soul chose to get on this ride.

    To learn.

    To grow.

    To expand.

    Your soul is hungry for experiences and emotions that nudge you into alignment.

    The depth of darkness and shadow you feel also opens up the limitless love and joy you can also feel.

    Allow yourself to change.

    Allow yourself to merge with your shadow.

    On this rollercoaster of life one minute we are up and the next we are down… and it will continue to go on. Otherwise wouldn’t life be boring?

    Enjoy it for all that life is – it’s only temporary anyway!

  • CHANGES…

    Change pushes you to expand...

    Why do you only want change if it’s on your terms?

    That is not how change works.

    Change pushes you to expand.

    The circumstances of life and the universe will show you what is happening.

    Some doors are closed to redirect you.

    A door to another path will open and show you another way of doing things.

    Rejection is protection.

    You cannot control the pace of change.

    It just happens and is inevitable, so you might as well embrace it because you’ll emerge stronger, wiser and smarter than before.

    Trust and surrender...

    There’s one common thing that most of us do that stops us from growing and changing 👀

    That very thing?

    The desire to control.

    So very human of us.

    You are a powerful creator collaborating with the universe and life force itself.

    You’ll find your life fill with more ease when you realise the only thing you can control is you.

    Your inner reality.

    Choosing what thoughts you’ll follow and go into the rabbit hole with.

    Choose your perspective on the world and what you’ll do with those feelings.

    Choose your impact on the world through the way you move and what you do.

    No matter how hard you try — you cannot control life.

    It’s the beauty of life, it will unfold as it should.

    Trust and surrender beautiful soul 🌊

    Let go of the heavy need to control it all because you can’t and why would you want to?

    It would be a heavy task and where’s the fun in that?

    Enjoy the ride 🦋

  • Who are you?

    The jigsaw puzzle of life

    Stories aren’t just found in fairy tales, books and movies.

    We live inside stories that our mind creates and identifies with.

    Our brain pieces these stories together to create the ultimate story of ‘me’.

    The voice inside your head has created ‘you’ by weaving together pieces of your past experiences and what you believe to be true.

    It all then pieces together like a jigsaw puzzle.

    Only certain pieces make it into this jigsaw puzzle.

    The great unlearning...

    So who are YOU really? You aren’t these stories, you are what’s beneath them all. Pure consciousness — soul.

    Have you observed this story telling?

    The stories vou believe in the form of “l”.
    I am the type of person who…

    I am not like that because…

    I am not worthy because..

    I believe that…

    I am right because…

    The stories make us feel a certain way, the stories have us act a certain way.

    Your true self doesn’t identify with the stories.

    Your true self is in your expression, being, essence and knowing.

    There’s nothing to defend, assert, prove or cling onto.

    You haven’t done this knowingly – it has instinctively happened through your experiences and conditioning.

    You aren’t who you think you are – you are the presence underneath and behind all the layers.

    You awaken to your true self when you become conscious of this and free yourself from the stories.

    You are.

    So freeing, so powerful – to break free from the stories and simply be.

    This is the great unlearning…

  • Embrace the darkness

    Even stars need darkness to shine

    Not all of life can be lived in the light.

    There are times life is calling us to the shadows – to grow, evolve and expand far greater than we ever have before.

    The void.

    The darkness.

    The womb space.

    The caterpillar must go into the cocoon to emerge a butterfly.

    The phoenix must die to be reborn and emerge from the ashes.

    The dark night of the soul must take pace for the awakening.

    The seedling must be planted and covered in dirt to beautifully bloom.

    Even stars and the moon need darkness in order to shine…

    The light is there, hidden

    With the darkness in life it’s not always as it appears to be.

    Beneath the veil of darkness and in the unseen. The light is there, hidden ✨

    You cannot fully perceive the changes unfolding, but just because you can’t does not mean that they aren’t happening… everything being lined up in perfect timing perfectly for you.

    Perhaps reflect in your life during difficult times that felt like the end of the world yet were the springboard and catalyst to something greater, more than you realised and could perceive at the time.

    Perhaps the darkness was your great
    We need the darkness as much as the, it’s natural as night and day.

    If you’re in the darkness now, this is a sign and affirmation to trust and have faith in the process.

    All will be revealed 💡

    I know it’s not easy, I believe in you 🌟

  • Your greatest season…

    Your greatest season

    The truth is sometimes you won’t understand why certain things are happening in your life.

    It will feel frustrating and difficult.

    You will question yourself – who you are, the choices you have made, the decisions you came to, your past and ultimately you still won’t find the answers in that.

    We think that the more we know and understand, the more peace we will have but that isn’t always the case.

    There are times in life all you can do is surrender and ride the waves.

    To have faith and trust in the process.

    That everything is happening for a reason for your greatest season.

    I believe in you...

    This is for you beautiful soul, if you’re in the fog, the uncertainty — doubting yourself, questioning yourself…

    It may not make sense right now and maybe it isn’t meant to make sense right now, but one day it will.

    We can’t always navigate life in our head, intellectually… logically.

    And thus sometimes life will shake itself up with the twists, turns and all things unexpected to get you out of your head and into your body.

    Your heart.

    Your soul.

    Your gut.

    Your intuition.

    It will test your patience.

    It will test your faith.

    It’s not easy but you will get through it.

    I know you will.

    I believe in you 🌟

    I see you 👁️

    I feel you 🧡

  • Can you surrender?

    That is life...

    Sometimes all you can do is surrender.

    To the twists and turns on the ride that is life.

    To the unpredictable waves that is life.

    To the lows and highs that is life.

    To the unknown and unexpected that is life.

    To the ebbs and flows that is life.

    To the inhale and exhale that is life.

    May surrender bring you the peace that you seek.

    Can you surrender?

    You are afraid to surrender because you don’t want to lose control. But you never had control… all you had was anxiety – @elizabeth_gilbert_writer 💡

    Instead of resisting, how would it feel to melt into this very moment…

    How would it feel to accept and allow this moment as if it were pure perfection (which it is in the guidance of the divine for your highest growth and good).

    Can you surrender?

    As an emotional authority in human design, it often feels like a dance — the push and pull with life and every time it will come back to… surrender 🌊

    Can’t fight the waves, all we can do is learn to swim or better yet surf 🏄🏼‍♀️
