I was caught with a deep belly laugh when this appeared a couple daze ago
Thinking of my biking feats, thinking of these life feats.
I've learned, via Mtn biking, that my bike is built for all the terrain we cover, when I allow it, we thrive and power through elements that seem certain to send me crashing. The flow and capacity to ride through those elements is a mix of speed, balance, agility, and trust. Trust in the bike (it was built for this) and my ability (I too was built for this) to steer certainly through something I cannot yet imagine crossing, new terrain, new element. Trust that the balance and agility within me will dance into those technical elements, allowing for prevailing success. Each approach allows me to meet myself there again, revisit my edge, witness (if I choose) grace and perseverance. #mtb#shamanismo#singletrack#visionquest#agility#ninjalife#gracealways#inlove#ingratitude
So PROUD of our nephew Jared Scripture for braving/hiking the entire Appalachian trail this season. What an experience! Prayers for continued safety welcomed/appreciated. Photo credit @scripturejared . #walkabout#visionquest#natureisdivinity
Morning Ritual ✨ I have finally gotten back into the rhythm of my morning ritual and words can hardly describe the difference it makes for the rest of my day. To be in silence from when I wake up and until my ritual is complete, makes a drastic difference with bringing bits of the dream world with me into this physical plane of reality. As I come out of this morning discipline, I feel as if I'm coming out of a sacred ceremony -blissed out, grounded and connected- The ritual I have created for myself looks something like this: Start the morning with an oil pull -swishing my mouth with organic coconut oil for 20 minutes-, drink a big glass of water saying a prayer of thanks for the life it gives me, sit in meditation for 20-30 minutes, connect with my breath through some pranayama (nadi shodhana or kapalabhati), flow through asanas for at least 1 hour, and finish with a mini tea ceremony (my morning tea is usually loose leaf jasmine green tea with licorice root, and sometimes rose petals) as I write in my journal, connecting with myself and seeing what flows out.
In this photo I had just finished all of the above and am sitting in padmasana with my beeswax candle burning, the red-tailed hawk feather I've had for years holding space with white Sage, cedar from the Moondance and the Vision Quest tarot card I drew which is representing so much in my life right now. The turquoise and quartz crystals are there to amplify all this juicy energy and the flame a constant reminder of my inner fire. Daily ritual is so important and is what helps me to live my every day life in a high vibrational state. Everything we need is really always here with us, we just have to find silence, turn inward, and tune into it 🙏🏽 •
Since arriving back in the motherland my connection to nature and Mother Earth as deepened. I used to miss NZ on such a visceral level, whenever a tourism ad came on the tv / movie screen showcasing the beautiful scenery of this country I would burst into tears. Needless to say I was in the receiving end of some strange looks sometimes 😂 #whyisshecrying#themoviehasntevenstartedyet This connection and love has deepened even further since doing vision quest last November with @samaroceanwolfciprian (so much gratitude for the incredible lady coming into my life 🙏). Now during my meditation sessions I often am guided to feeling my body sinking down into the earth like the roots of a tree, going right into mama natures epicentre, her heart. And what better place to experience that under a beautiful tree like this and right in the heart of the city too. #earthmama#naturelover#meditation#connection#treehugger#hippy#visionquest#lifechanger#yogi#auckland#newzealand
I write a lot about Change and Transforming SELF through Conscious Awareness and Sovereignty, and bringing that state into Peaceful Alignment. People change, it is our basic nature as is LIFE. I help people to direct that focus into positive manifestation of LIFE PURPOSE and greater harmony and fulfillment. However, I also teach others about Radical Acceptance of Self EXACTLY as YOU ARE right now! You can't change what you can't accept. So we start with loving ourself first. This is where true healing lies. Where true change begins. Changing the Mind. This IS PEACE AND JOY. No one tells you that. Loving what is IS the KEY to transforming your life. You can't hate your body for instance, while trying to transform it. You can't send hateful negative messages to your body while trying to create the body you love! See? It's the same with anything. Loving your shadows, perceived flaws, IS THE WAY, the only peaceful way through. Loving the aspects of YOU that Judge yourself and others, loving the one who HATES, the one who Complains, the one who Swears and gets Impatient, the one who loathes, or is Lazy. Become the Lover to yourself you wish you had. Become your biggest FAN. Compliment yourself often, offer Encouragement to yourself as if you were a small child! What you once thought was impossible becomes "I'm Possible"!

Simplicity is ma jam🍽 No matter how I may seem 🐙10 Minute #Abs DONE✅ #Yoga and #MMA coming right up. A wee bit too much pre-workout this morning had me blazing through the morning like some kind of Samurai Warrior. How'd you like that Panda bear @holisticdreamer_ What were we even saying? 🤣 I forget already #visionquest Update on Spring Equinox dream cycle: last night was war. Naturally🙅🏻👣🏹That covers, death, love, war, money. What ghost do you suppose will come visit me in my dreams tonight? 👻 Who else gets all psychological / spiritual on their dreams? They are lucid af right now.
My most beloved paintings always find homes first. This one got scooped up at Sonic Bloom festival last year. I always wonder who got it and where it lives. Part of the "Energy in Rhythm" series, to see available paintings click the link in my bio.
This is one way to reduce your stress. If you know where you're going and how important it is that you get there, then you won't let others barge into your life and demand you to derail. You won't let them take up all of your time stressing you out.
