So last month I completed the half #toughmudder which was just over 5 miles long with 13 gruelling obstacles 🏃🏼♀️it was so so so much fun and the best thing I've ever done by far, I loved every second! However I did really struggle with the running and found myself walking A LOT which isn't bad but I am determined to improve my cardiovascular fitness for next year!!🙌🙌🙌
Well this is the face of the day I guess😽 ...this shirt tho can we just take a minute and appreciate the word WARRIOR! Everyones there own warrior, I sure have had my days of selfhate, self doubt and just plain not good feelings. But every time I put this shirt on the and look in the mirror I think why, why put yourself down, why give the satisfaction to let other people have the chance to do it to you. Stand up and fight, fight for yourself. You are the only one holding yourself back! Be happy for who you are where you come from and everything that makes you, well you! #warrior#imawarrior#warrior#loveyourself#beyourself#loveyou#behappy#bepositive#staytrueandbeyou#fight#nevergiveup#rant
That feeling you get when you finally look in the mirror, see all of your flaws, and STILL rock that bikini because you know your mom bod is a masterpiece and all those flaws gave me three of the four most beautiful things in my life! #loveyourself
Eeeekk!! I have finally broken through an energy block!
I have been working diligently with my "fear of failure" energy block. This one has been deep seated in my mind and has caused so much wasted energy throughout my life - (no judgment, blame, anger, etc. attached to that, only love and gratitude for those experiences. 😜) Reflecting on the unblocking experience, it's been like peeling the layers of an onion.
Starting at the surface, I discovered one layer, worked on unblocking it, only to discover (and usually not right away) that there was another layer (pre-conditioned belief) that was not serving me.
I can't tell you exactly how many layers I have transmuted, and at times I would think I reached the core, only to discover my mind covertly throwing in negative thoughts amongst my beautiful creative flow.
How do I know I've hit the core? This is so exciting!!!.....I DON'T!
Non-attachment, no expectation, grateful for whatever experience this leads to, trust that the Universe will provide, a knowing of infinite abundance is available, my passion and purpose are in the drivers seat now, not my monkey mind. I am listening to my Soul, heck we have conversations! I am fully trusting in my intuition and my connection with Universal Energy.
It's a lot easier to guide from the sides right? To help others before we help ourselves. As spiritual coaches and teachers, intuitives and healers, we are only human too! Our journey has led us on the path to connect with others and guide them to the light, show them where to go, but not what to see. Same goes for us! We can't expect to be perfect, nor do we want to be. How else could we grow stronger in our ability to serve others without our own inner evolution of realizations that can be shared?
So, to make a long post just a little longer (lol😜), in 3 -4 weeks I will be introducing a brand new Soul Speaks creation! Can't wait to share! xoxo
Who's ready for the next level? 🤔
DOUBLE TAP IF YOU ARE! ❤️

Awaken to the dangers of an environment in which people are afraid to speak truthfully for fear of being called critical or judgmental. A climate in which spiritual bypassing is the path. I recently came across this in a post by a yoga community that was about SEVA. Seva is selfless service to others as service to God, without ANY thought of repayment or reward. Any. That includes recognition, validation, praise from others. The post used an example that was a laundry list of "service" a person had done. Often you see someone who donates a money to a cause, and then talks about it. Or donates to go fund me and never chooses "anonymous", or performs volunteer work to help disabled, etc... but tells the world (or their social media) about it. Those acts are lovely. They are kind. They are often compassionate. They are not, however, Seva. When we receive our "reward" here on earth, we are not performing Seva. A reward is not just monetary, it includes praise and recognition and validation. I once attended a lecture by a (now deceased) very famous author/speaker/spiritual teacher. This person spoke on stage about having just gifted a participant several thousand dollars so she could stay on the island of the retreat and continue to restore her soul. He shared (with her permission) her story of struggle and pain and how he gifted this to her as part of his service. But, this wasn't service. In fact, in the audience as a special guest speaker that day, was Ram Dass, founder of the Seva Foundation. And when he made his way up to the stage, he was asked several questions about Seva. He shared that when you see the Beloved all around you, everyone is family and love is everywhere. He also shared that your every day mindset is one of "how can I be of help in this situation... the mundane, the non-glorified, the tasks of daily life." He specified that getting recognition or praise for these mundane tasks of service is not Seva. When I shared this truth, it triggered the person whom the post was about who defensively labeled it "critical". To avoid spiritual bypassing we must be open to learning deeper truths.
I took our son to the splash park today. A lovely lady I was bantering with looked at me and said, "You look far too put together to be here." I know she meant it as a compliment but it made me pause. I thought about all the times I've felt the judgement of other Mums based on my appearance. Like I was breaking the unwritten rule that since my son's birth I should be confined to a messy bun, resting bitch face, and stretch fabrics. Well here's the thing. There is no reason, in my mind, as to why I need sacrifice my creativity, my personality or the sheer value I place in myself each day for the sake of my son. As a stay at home mum, he is the most dominant and prominent focus of my every single day; and I am absolutely certain there is nothing wrong with him playing without me for 20 mins while I pin curl my hair and put on my face. It does not harm him. He is not neglected. I promise we play just as hard as anyone. In this practice I maintain myself as myself and we are healthier for it. Please let me be the one to tell you that you a right to have time for yourself. Do your yoga, sew a dress, climb a mountain, paint a canvas, paint your face! Just do it for you. We teach our kids to create through example and showing them a healthy love of ourselves will help them learn to invest in what makes them happy within. We are the creators of our own happiness. #momlife#vintagestyle#vintagehome#momswithcameras#mommoment#beingamom#boymom#birchbuttonhome#vintagestylist#toyseverywhere#loveyourself#selflove#mentalhealthbreak#doitforyou#youmatter#dowhatyoulove
This is why I pour my heart into helping woman change their lives! I know what it's like to want to get in shape and need accountability, need a cheerleader and know that someone has my back. --
I walk side by side with each of my girls with their nutrition and workout program because I want them to get REAL results and I refuse to let them down. I want them to have fun and enjoy the process. A healthy lifestyle shouldn't feel like a chore or dieting hell! It should be FUN and give you results! If you hit a plateau, screw that, I help you break it, switch things up and continue your progress! MAKE THE SHIFT LADIES. --
