"being #realistic is the most common path to #mediocrity " - Will Smith . I remember a time when someone said to me "well come on, I'm a realist." In response to my explanation of how positivity and perception is a game changer in life.. despite their view on my view, the way I see it, I'm a realist too; I expect #miracles & amazing things.. we see them happen everyday. You won't be the first person to heal, the first person to become crazy #successful , the first to change the world.. that being said, you will never be that person if you don't believe it's possible. #quotes#lawofattraction#manifest it ❤
For this week's Breakfast on the Bench, Jill shares with us the miracle of every day beauty. We hope this weekend you'll find some time to stop and smell the flowers! .
"Just a pretty flower we spotted in a restaurant on Abbot Kinney in Venice Beach CA. How does this miracle happen?" --Jill
Listening. Of all the things we can do in communication, it's the most import one that provides the insights we need to be our highest selves and be in our personal power. ❤ Be love. Be life. Be a listener. The Ultimate Way to Live.
The moment your childhood crush liked someone else, you experienced heartbreak – feelings of despair and abandonment. Being a child, pain was unbearable, so you started avoiding heartbreak at all costs. You started fearing intimacy.
The fear of intimacy keeps you from opening your heart, developing trust, and experiencing the vulnerability of falling in love. The fear of intimacy makes avoiding pain more important than feeling love. Thoughts of getting close to someone and losing them paralyzes your nervous system.
Understand: Getting close to someone is beautiful, as long as closeness to self is priority. Without closeness to self, separation happens – you need your partner to feel one.
You fear intimacy because your heart is closed. You have not developed strength taking responsibility for your well-being while in a relationship – so you avoid getting involved. Instead, you make another responsible for your experience of life and love. Once breakup happens, months and sometimes years of heartbreak occur.
Heartbreak is an emotion experienced according to your level of self-abandonment. Your level of self-abandonment depends upon how much you depended on your partner for love. Here are tips to remain closeness with self and taking responsibility for feelings after breakup:
1. Realize: True love comes from source, not another person.
2. Accept: Life is change. People and things come and go in time. This is the beauty of life's constant flux of movement.
3. Understand: The feelings you felt for someone were YOUR feelings. Take responsibility. Embrace. Let feelings of heartbreak show how much you betrayed yourself in the relationship.

Even now,” declares the LORD, “return to ME with ALL your HEART... Rend your Heart & not your garments. Return to the LORD your God, for He is Gracious & Compassionate, slow to anger & Abounding in LoVe, and He relents from sending calamity. Who knows? He may Turn & Relent & leave behind a BLeSSiNG!!!
~ Joel 2:12-14
***Happy FRiDaY Beautiful People! It's Lent, so I figured I should post the Most Helpful & fitting Truth. No matter what your Spiritual Belief, Christian or Not, returning to #Source is always Where the #Power & #Blessing IS. And we don't do so for the #Blessing , we Do so for the Peace, Freedom & Power in Both. See Friends when we seek some Blessing, or focus on the Get- we receive a Fraction of what's possible, and often Miss Our #Best . When we #Strive , we spin our wheels, & exhaust Ourselves. Our Greatest Power & Blessing comes in Returning to Source, in Resting in God's Power, & in Praising & Abiding in the Heart Space that OVeRCoMeS Everything, even Death. Do Your Best, Always... then #Rest in Him. Return to Your Power today. THaT's where the #Miracles are. ;) XO

🚨🚨STOP WHAT YOU'RE DOING!!🚨🚨 Have you ever seen a miracle ? How about two? Please take time out in celebrating & giving God praise with my family for our 24 weeker miracle warriors, Hezekiah💙 & Haley💜 crossing another milestone. These little fighters are walking!! Haley on March 15th & Hezekiah on March 24th! Their corrected age is 13 months born Sept 29, 2015. My due date was Jan 15,2016 ! They're on target and have been or before it thus far! Those who've been following me or our friends/family know their journey. The other day we were told Hezekiah would need specific shoes with more arch for his feet because his right foot is flat when he stands. My baby boy started walking today without ANY shoes! I stand here to say when man (the doctor, that lawyer, that teacher whoever it may be) says NO, God can still say YES! PROUD OF THESE TWO! They never cease to amaze me. WOW! @sk3tch_tha_neworleansdanceking @ourlittlepreemie @preemiesofig #ourlittlepreemies#ourlittlepreemie#preemiesofinstagram#preemietwins#preemietwins#preemie#momoftwins#fitmom#fitblackwomen#fitnessmotivation#inspiration#motivation#miracles#littlefighters
Good Morning, who needs a little #Goddess power this morning? I could certainly use some! Lol This applies to both Women and Men. We could all use the gifts that the Goddesses offer! ✨🔮✨
Express your divine feminine energy, embracing it's magical intuition and nurturing qualities.
This card speaks of a need for sacred female energy, which brings gifts such as intuition, nurturing, and artistic expression. Perhaps you've been spending too much time thinking or engaging in creatively void work. If so, then this card is your signal to move your body in dance; and express your intuitive, artistic, and nurturing side.
You're also guided to call on benevolent female deities for help with the situation you're inquiring about.
You can call upon Lakshmi, The beloved Hindu goddess who helps with abundance; Brigit, the Celtic goddess of healing and courage; Mother Mary, the Saint who guides our children; Athena, the Grecian goddess of wisdom; the Egyptian goddess Isis, who helps women juggle home and family; or any of the thousands of other trustworthy and sacred feminine deities.
Within every Woman are three parts of the goddess; Maiden (inner child, at times pure and other times adventurous or bold); Mother (nurturing qualities); and Matriarch (the teacher). Men have analogous inner qualities of the Lad, the Dad, and the Patriarch.
It's important to express each of these three parts daily. This helps to balance playfulness with work and relationships. Spend time each day expressing all three characteristics, and notice how much more energized and balanced you feel.

I've passed by this sign daily the last couple weeks. (It's actually hand cut metal, but this photo doesn't do the artistry justice.) I love this brand and everything they stand for. But more than that, I'm thankful for the reminder...every time. #miracles#handmade#magnoliamarket
Just finished all my exams today *sighs* wooohoooooo! 🎉🎉. I haven't posted for days because I was so busy studying hehe in case you're wondering 🙃🙌🏻. I feel so tired after those days of sleepless nights and all I really want right now is to sleep (for eternity) 😂. Can finally take new pictures, read and practice arts again! I missed it. I hope everyone's having a great day/night! 🙆🏻♂️❤ [#miracles ]
This is what gratitude has done for me. It's easy to practice when blessings and amazingness is raining down upon you, but to practice militant gratitude when you feel depressed and alone is tough. That aspect of difficulty is why I believe it's a skill, and as a skill it must be practiced.
This is a 30 day challenge that I did that really turned my life around. That was nearly a year and a half ago and I still do it. Everyday.
For 30 days - before you commence the days activities, write down 3 things you are grateful for. Never repeating those things.
You're going to discover so many things you take for granted, things that some people would kill for. A smile, hands that function properly, a pencil, a pair of shoes, drinkable water. You get the picture. You are so insanely blessed if you just take the time to open your heart to see it. .
@elevatedfn @thexbands @chaosandpain @compexusa @trainhylete - thank you for your support. .
You are perfect in all of your ways... understanding that... and having real self awareness can heal your soul. #selflove#selfawareness I'm a #wonder and it doesn't matter what u see now. I know who #iam I'm working in #power I am working in #miracles
The best kept secret of medicine?
Our bodies can heal themselves when we create the right conditions.
And choose to stop doing the things that caused the symptoms in the first place.
The first step in designing the life you want, is releasing anything that isn't supporting you.
(Mind, body, spirit, etc.)
So that there is actually space to fill those areas with what serves you most.
Spring cleansing is in full effect, with last night's body work session from Crystal Fortman 🙏🏼💕
