Sometimes we believe that it’s safer to show up with only half of our hearts. It can seem wise (in order to protect ourselves) to withdraw, numb or leave when someone’s hurt us. I know it may be hard to understand (and even harder to do), but it’s always safer to keep our hearts open. 
Practise allowing pain to soften you instead of harden you. Stay kind. Communicate boundaries. Express your feelings and needs. Do not chastise. Decide that you’re big enough to hold space for your pain. That you can hurt and bleed and still keep your heart open. 
We are safest when our hearts are wide open because how can we trust a heart that’s half closed? It is only with an open heart that we can trust the integrity of our choices. ✨

Thank you for supporting my art, my freedom, my joy and my expression.... (this also means hooking me up with a Drake playlist, being translator between @yongsubi and I, moving props around the hotel, and making me green tea!) ~ 😝❤️

I know, it can be so exhausting, this human experience... “Not another moment. Not another word, nothing. I have nothing left, nothing more to give right now”. - I hear you. I know you have done you’re very best.

Please, come here. Just as you are. Give me all that’s left of you. Lay down your weary body, rest your heart, here in my arms. I’ll hold you, as long as you need. I have nowhere to be, but here with you. Cry, cry, cry. And when you feel anger arrive, let it come. You can scream, roar, and weep... clenched fists and jaw. I’m not afraid of your pain. You are safe here in the cacoon of my arms and my heart. You are safe my love. 💛

It’s not Yoga for me unless I’m creating a more beautiful mind of thoughts. Unless I release all my plans for my life, and just for that very moment... empty. Become so empty, that ‘source’ can once again flow through me, fill me, and then guide my next movement, my next breath, my next choice. It’s not Yoga for me unless I connect to my innate vulnerability and my infinite capacity to love. It’s this kind of Yoga that heals . 💛💫

There are beautiful rare moments in life, in which I feel so taken by love and goodness. It is being in the presence of your love, and the presence of my own love for you. It’s in the way we hold tenderly our fears and struggle. It’s the way we are committed to coming back to love, again and again. 
Love can become so quietly overwhelming. It reminds me of when I’m in the ocean, consumed by the essence of everything pure and true. I have no choice but to surrender to its magnificence and beauty. It brings me to tears. Thank you for crying with me in these sweet sweet moments of love. Thank you for continuously opening your heart to me, allowing me to love you. Thank you for all the sacrifices you make so we can be together although we’re oceans apart.  Thank you. 💛💫

I have never seen or experienced a more beautiful and certain way to come face to face with our triggers and wounds than in intimate relationship. For healing and transformation to occur, our wounds must surface, they must be seen, felt fully and held tenderly. You can not bypass this process, so don’t be disappointed when the ‘shit’ arises. It’s in this ‘shit’ that we are given an opportunity (if we are brave enough to take it) to practise loosening the grip of old patterning and strengthening the stream of new patterning. To speak, act, think, respond, or hold space even just 1% more lovingly, more patiently, more openly than the last time is a huge achievement- I hope so deeply that you understand this. 
In conscious relationship, we welcome our shadow, accept that we are, and will always be flawed humans; practising mutual forgiveness time and time again. From this place we begin the epic journey of transforming our fear into love ❤️

✨SEXUAL TRAUMA✨

I speak of trauma often, to the sexual part of ourselves and our body. Sexual trauma is not limited to those who have been raped and abused, it is a collective trauma in our society. Not to neglect the obvious trauma to those that have been overtly violated, but the violation that’s often masked and underestimated is our lack of ‘connection’ and absence of ‘honour’ to this area of our body.

It is more important than ever to develop a sacred relationship to the body, to our genitals, to the act of sex. And to be open to the deep healing power of sexual energy. 
If we don’t feel & express the highest level of connection and worship to our bodies and hearts through the act of sex, how can we expect to be living and vibrating on our highest frequency? 
I’m leading a very special five night immersion into everything ‘woman’, late August this year in Queensland, Australia. A place for wild, tender, intimate exploration into sexuality, getting reacquainted with your body, using your voice, and embracing everything that it means to be a woman. Please Direct Message me if you want to be notified when applications are open online. ❤️
