I am not a victim. I am a survivor.
Trigger warning, it’s time to share my first story.
It was spring break of my sophomore year in high school. I was invited to a party with the popular kids, not because they liked me but because they liked my photography and asked me to take photos of the party. So I came with my camera and my volleyball spandex. I took pictures, drank, tried to fit in, whatever. The night went on and my vision became blurry. I saw a boy I only barely knew but decided to walk up and give him a hug. He proceeded to kiss me in the living room and I kissed back. Although I kissed back I wasn’t sure if this was what I wanted.
He grabs my hand. He pulls me to the bathroom. I begin to shut down.
The sad thing is a lot of people assume a woman should be prepared for this situation. That a woman should know exactly what to do when this happens. That she should immediately attack and run.
I just did not know what to do. It all happened too fast for my brain to process what was happening. And I froze. “Pull those spandex down” he told me. And when I didn’t, he did it himself. All I remember was my head banging against the mirror. I remember crying and eventually realizing what was happening.
I tried to get out. He blocks the door. He locks it. Drunk teenagers start banging on the door and yelling so they can pee. I panic and manage to get past him. He throws the condom on the ground. I unlock the door and run out crying. I get kicked out of the party for being the crying drunk girl. The party finds the condom. Within 24 hours I’m known as the schools slut.
Six days later spring break is over and I’m trying to walk to class with my head down as I walk passed the popular kids.
They yelled the name of my rapist in unison to my face.
They. Yelled. The. Name. Of. My. Rapist. To. My. Face. Laughed, knocked it with each other, and mugged me.

She’s the kind of light that
penetrates your soul and
finds the spots that
have been in the
dark for too
long. .

The ability to see through facades is both a blessing and a curse.
The truth might hurt but I will never apologize for speaking it. I would rather be honest and disliked, than dishonest and praised. 🖤

On our last night at the @aloyoga retreat we had a sound bath healing session under the stars. I found myself having a more difficult time trying to settle down and surrender than normal. I kept breathing through any tension as I relaxed more and more until I felt weightless. It wasn’t until around the end of the session that I had fully let go and the vibrations of the sound bowls casted away energy blockages I had in my solar plexus and heart chakra, and continued out through my crown. In that moment I had an epiphany. Maybe not exactly an epiphany as I’ve had these thoughts before, but it came to me clearer than before. It was in regards to the trauma I’ve been through and how if I had not gone through any of it I would not be a fraction of who I am today.
I would not be where I am today.
It was as if I had this overwhelming sense of gratitude for my hardships and a heightened understanding of why I was meant to go through them. And how regardless of what I’ve been through I have always come out stronger no matter what. That I have never let anything defeat me or dim my shine.
Growth does not come from the avoidance of struggle. That is why the saying “No mud, no lotus” is a favorite of mine.
I had a glimpse of heightened awareness similar to my kundalini awakening back in 2015, and what do you know? Synchronistic events began to unfold before me again. I also got deja vu multiple times. It is so curious how these things always tend to happen in my life only when I am in complete alignment.
Moments like those can be rare but I’ve learned to recognize how and when they are happening. It is divine.

As the lovely @_hananelazaar would say, “You have the tools you’re just distracted.” 🙇🏼‍♀️💭
I was honestly unaware of this progress until I put these side by side. But as always, the most important progress is the progress that happens within!
Lessons learned: a nonjudgmental approach to your practice is the only way to go. Celebrate every baby step. An open mind leads to an open body. Don’t take shit too seriously. Fall out and smile every time! Laugh at yourself! Have a child like state while simultaneously pushing yourself further and be enthusiastic to learn, and unlearn. Accept the present without anxiously asking for what is next. Clarity comes to us when we are balanced. Patience is the vehicle to success. I could go on and on 🤷🏼‍♀️😜
