What’s not working in your life? What feeling sticky? Where do you feel at war with yourself? Who do you need to be in order to... ⠀ 👉🏻 feel alive 👉🏻 honour your desires 👉🏻 get honest with yourself ⠀ We can’t transform our lives and also be in a state of denial, practice curiosity and compassion rather than judging yourself, the truth will absolutely set you free.
*my face after I take an emotional shit* 💩 👆🏻 ⠀ Ewwww poo! (Or wait, isn’t poo like the cool thing to talk abut now?) #poo4lyfe ⠀ Ok, let’s look at science for a hot second, you consume through your mouth, and you release through your bum, pretty standard procedure, ammiiright??? ⠀ Now let’s take this down to the emotional level, we are constantly consuming energy, experiences, traumas, pains, heartbreaks - EVERY. DAMN. DAY. ⠀ Yet, don’t we let ourselves emotionally release and let go like we do physically... why? ⠀ (...reason number 3847833 the body is WAY smarter than the mind) ⠀ ✨💩 Let. That. Shit. Go. 💩✨ ⠀ Right now in your body you have so many experiences, energies and sensations that are begging to be released... ⠀ We label it as ‘anxiety’ or ‘stress’ and we throw some food in our mouth so hopefully it goes away. 🤞 ⠀ What if you let yourself cry as many times as you let yourself poo? ⠀ Imagine the lightness, the ease? ⠀ Here’s the thing, the stress in your body could be from weeks, months or years ago, but we assume it’s the thing that’s right in front of us that’s creating the problem... In essence we project YEARS of emotional tension onto relationships, work, family or the fucking Uber driver who took a wrong turn... 🤣 ⠀ Give yourself SPACE to release... ⠀ 😭Have a good cry 🗣Do some scream breathing 🤜🏻Punch pillows 🛌 Smash a poodle noodle against your bed 💨Do some breathwork (clearly my fav) ⠀ It doesn’t matter WHAT you do, as long as you just DO IT. ⠀ What’s your fav way of releasing emotional tension? Let’s share some ideas...👇🏻🙏
Let’s get honest for a second... ⠀ How often do you schedule time to just do a little check-in on yourself, to feel your heart, to ask yourself what you need and to spend some time with your inner child? ⠀ How much time do you spend in a place of gratitude for yourself, relishing in your brilliance and loving the parts of yourself you’ve been at war with? ⠀ How often do you acknowledge everything you’ve been through? Thank yourself for all of the pain, trials and tribulations you’ve gone through in order to be here, in this moment reading this post? ⠀ How often do you celebrate yourself? Take time to truly acknowledge and appreciate all of your little wins along your divine path? ⠀ What if you did this as often as you checked Instagram, how would your life change? ⠀ Here are some of my favourite ways to check in on myself and celebrate... ⠀ ✨A cozy bath with a good book ✨A long walk in the woods without my phone ✨A delicious conversation with one of my best friend (like yesterday @amymeraki ) 💕 ✨Writing myself love letters ✨Nurturing my inner child ✨Building slip and slides ✨Doing anything in the water ✨Resting, deep soul rest ⠀ What’s your FAV way to celebrate yourself?👇🏻
Wanna get intimate for a hot minute? 🔥 ⠀ I wrote a letter to my 18 year old self. 📖 ⠀ What would I say if I could gently whisper into the ear of this version of me? ⠀ What if I could share my deepest truths and bold statements that I now live by? ⠀ So, I wrote it out and I wanna share a little snippet with you, my hope is that maybe one of these nuggets lights up your soul and allows you to feel lighter.✨ ⠀ Lezzz do it. 🤟🏼 ⠀ - don’t worry about finding ‘the one’, focus on being ‘the one’ being your own best friend, show up for yourself in miraculous ways, there is no greater gift than coming home to ourselves and loving ourselves fiercely. ⠀ - Slow the fuck down, going faster doesn’t mean we will be more efficient, productive or you’ll get ‘there’ quicker. ⠀ - Speaking of ‘there’, there actually is no ‘there’ all we have is now, if the journey doesn’t feel like the destination you’re doing it wrong. ⠀ - Life is one big cosmic game, when we can understand that energy is everything and we learn how to play the game, it becomes fun & easy AF. ⠀ - Presence is the greatest gift, first give it to yourself and then share with the world. ⠀ - Pain is a good thing, embrace it wildly, learn from it and transcend it. The worst thing we could do is suppress our pain as it then will amplify. ⠀ - Follow your excitement, excitement leaves clues, excitement is the stepping stones to your divine path. ⠀ - Don’t give a shit about what everyone else is doing, you do you, and do it with your full heart. ⠀ - Eat the food, drink the drink, have the sex, binge the show, stay up all night - whatever is a FAKK YESS, just do it. ⠀ - Seek out experiences that make you come alive, the true essence of feeling alive is what we deeply desire. ⠀ - You are the creator of this experience and you’re also the destroyer, create what feels good and destroy what no longer fits, you run the show. ⠀ WHAT WOULD YOU TELL YOUR YOUNGER SELF? 👇🏻✨ ⠀ Skelly from the block 🤟🏼 Photo @aayushswamy
