Working on some new tricks with @blissoul one step at a time. Sometimes not every new routine clicks immediately and sometimes we realize that we will need to practice many times before getting it 'perfect' and that's ok, it's all part of the journey and I am grateful for everything. #acro#acroyoga#yoga#Gratitude
One more lesson no.3 that I learn from my practice:
An Attitude of Gratitude
I believe gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. Be grateful for it ALL. The highs, the lies, the blessings, the pains, the lessons, the laughters, the tears, the love, the hate. Everything.
It's embracing uncertainty, feeling gratitude towards the challenges that have happened to us knowing that will lead us to new opportunities. Every step forward is a step towards becoming stronger and wiser.
We have the power to shift our perspectives and lift ourselves, and others. Yoga teaches us to cultivate within our hearts an attitude of gratitude.
Happy practicing! ❤
Pt 3 of Summer Herb Week
Today's herb is thyme! Some of us use it all the time and others of us leave it lingering in the cupboard. But did you know just how much it can benefit you?
1. Anti-Microbial: The oil in thyme is a powerful antimicrobial, great for healing mouth infections, sore throats and blocked noses. Simply brew in to a tea!
2. Antihypotensive - Thyme has been found to have properties that aid the reduction of blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
3. Mood-boosting: Carvacrol elements found in thyme leaves have been found to have an effect on dopamine and serotonin levels, increasing re-uptake efficiency.
4. Bacteria and prevention of infection within the body: Due it microbial properties, Thyme can both treat the symptoms and reduce the incidence of food-poisoning.
5. Dispersant & Diuretic: The essential oil from the thyme plant has been shown to have strong dispersant properties, making it highly effective at treating bronchitis and other mucous-related disorders. The same effects can be felt in the urinary system, where it acts as a flushing agent.
What other uses have you found? 💪🙏 #BareToesHolistic
Pardon my lame camera but today I had a very special visit with my Reiki master and dear friend Virginia 🌹 She has been one of my spiritual mentors for many years and is my go to person for everything from relationship issues to gardening advice. Her wisdom astounds me and I could spend a million afternoons curled up on her couch, sipping tea and sharing insights. Her generosity has taught me so much about what it is to be on the heart-centered path and I am forever grateful to her for being both a cherished teacher and a loving friend. Also...she is in her seventies and appears to be getting younger and more fabulous each time we meet. Who needs botox when you have Reiki?! 🔮💜🌱🌹🌠👐👐👐👐 #reikimaster#spiritmama#gratitude

Hanging out with this awesome dude at Balboa Park today.
He "quit his life" a few years ago to feel what was it like to live as a homeless and experience life with no money, no home, no time..Most of his nights he slept at Balboa Park and that is why we are here. Since he "came back", he wants to share what he has learned, and became an Xperi-MENTAL mentor helping people eliminate their mental blocks and maximize their life.
Such an inspirational story you have, Val! @goodpeoplerepublic is honored and inspired by you. Thank you ❤
Yesterday I was given these two flowers by our next door neighbors 1 year old. He probably (okay definitely) had no clue, but the past two days have been a little rough mentally and his random act of kindness reminded me that there is so much kindness in the world. I have to remind myself of this on the daily and stop focusing on the negative. There is so much positivity to be had that I have to stop leaving room in my brain for negativity and instead fill it with positivity, happiness, kindness and gratitude. .
I'm constantly hearing: - I've had kids, I'll never have a tight stomach again. - You were born with a good metabolism - I can't do stay motivated, so why even try
- Those at home programs don't work
I'm here to prove to you that those are just EXCUSES holding you back. The proof is RIGHT HERE! You can do anything you set your mind to. It takes a little effort on your part. You may have to make some sacrifices. You may have to adjust your priorities. You can overcome that voice saying you're not worth it and the endless can'ts that you tell yourself. Those excuses won't get you ANYWHERE. The change starts in your head FIRST. The physical results are just a bonus.
REACH OUT and let me prove it to you that you can have that mindset AND body you've always wanted. I know you can lose 5-15 lbs in just 3 weeks🤜🏻🤛🏻 COME ON let's do it together 👭📲🙏🏻
Summer Solstice, Sun in Cancer. The sacred womb, home and family archetype. The time of the year we are mermaids in the tides, hide in our shells, and feel deeply with each passing emotional wave. We crave emotional bonding, security, the safety of introversion. Desires of being embraced tightly as our soft little under bellies are exposed. Our inner child heard, as irrational our reactions can be. Loved in all of our vulnerability, without Shame. .........
As children we embrace our feelings with reckless abandon. We have no Shame in our emotional landscape until we are influenced by the projections of adults around us. .......
This is Violet, born from the womb of true Cancerian friend. With every breath, this child shares Love with every offering. Who dreams of dancing mermaids and glittering tails. .........
May we all be as free as Violet to Love without Shame. Happy Solstice to our most introverted expressions of Self. 🦀❤️🌹

We'd really love for you come visit and learn more about #waysofforgetting . (I know all the social marketing is funky-- it's just something we care about a lot) . respect and extreme thanks, ryan :)
Lack of motivation can sometimes be as a result of a disconnect with your vision. There's so much noise out there and it's very easy to loose track of one's vision. Take time out every now and then to reconnect with your vision😎
UPDATE** Here's a rehearsal blooper to announce my U.K. mini tour with @lukeyatesmusic in July!! I've been blessed with these #learningcurves showing me human perfection isn't the same as perfectionism. Enjoy the in between steps 😂😁🙌🎶🙏🏻#gratitude#stayblessed
