At first I was like, there’s risk in posting this particular photo again but then I was like, I love myself and we could all be a little less hard on ourselves and each other for a change. So here’s a repost but with a transformation ✨🤩 this is the most beautiful digital art collage I’ve ever had and someone made it with one of my photos?! 🙌🏽 @nectarine.dreams this makes me feel like a cosmic island moon queen 👑 thank you for sharing your creations 🌸
Happy Teusday babes! Hope you’re feeling beautiful and infinite today 🌙 xo

Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it. Only you can change your life. ☽⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Practice practice practice. ☽⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I hope you know wherever you are, what ever you’re doing, that you know you have the power to get up again, climb a new mountain, spread your wings and chase that dream! ☽⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Being positive is hard, it’s an internal practice and attitude that can uplift you or hold you down. ☽⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“I’m positive I can’t do this right now” 😅 orrrrr “I’m positive I’m going to get there with hard work and if I get back up each time I fall with a smile!” 🤩
☽⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sending you all smiles and love! 🌈

My friend @rawlawal & I stumbled across this magical jungle in the middle of winter here in my back yard of Fort Collins 🌴 ❄️
☽⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Most of you know my love for plants is pretty huge 🌱 This place kinda has had a magical pull on my heart ever since we left! ☽⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
SO, here’s my question, who would be interested in a long weekend retreat/ mini training 4-5 days where we spend time focusing on meditation, building your personal meditation practice, journal writing and how to grow your asana practice/ manifesting your dreams to reality?! (All the magical work and tools) Here in Colorado! 🌈 Comment 🌱 for YES! ☽⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Real talk, female orgasms, exploring your sexuality + masturbation (studies have shown) 30% - 80% of female orgasms are fake, which should not be happening! So let’s start talking about it☽⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Faking doesn’t do anything for anyone. Your man or women is convinced you’re satisfied + also thinks they’re grreeat at knowing what you need in bed, & in the end YOU don’t receive any real pleasure from it. Sex is SUPPOSED to feel good + be an open & intimate practice. Why not be open with your partner & communicate about what you need in order to create an equal & healthy sex life together? ☽⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’ve talked to several women who have said things from “I can climax with clitoral & or vaginal stimulation, I can only be stimulated on my clitoris to climax” to- “I CANT seem to find the right place to stimulate, I’ve never had an orgasm, I just want to get it over with so I fake it” ☽⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Masturbation plays a HUGE roll. It helps you explore your own body to know what your needs are & also know how to let your partner learn how to pleasure you. Each woman’s body is completely different, pleasure points, style preference. Some can only climax with hand or oral stimulation while others need vaginal penetration + simultaneously needing their clitoris to be stimulated. ☽⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you’re one of the many women who isn’t receiving the right pleasure from your partner I suggest exploring your body to find what’s right for you + then moving forward with teaching your partner new techniques! Eye contact, kissing, nipple stimulation.
☽⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you’re one of many women who know their body + how it works but don’t know how to approach talking to their partner about how to change it up in bed, stop stop stop faking it. It will help both of you I promise. Your partner will realize they aren’t pleasing you in the ways you need and it will give you a chance to say something about it & START the conversation. ☽⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I hope this helps anyone in need! Don’t be afraid of your sexuality or of trying new things!

Just finished making dinner for the gals here at the Airbnb! 😋 I’m so excited to be spending the weekend here in Denver! What are your favorite places? Secluded hikes?
My heart is so full and I’m beyond stoked to have a girls slumber party for the first time in probably 8 years or so 🤗 wearing all @aloyoga 🧚🏻‍♀️ this magical shot was taken on our bike path by my love @mynameiscub

🌈 As long as you’re not hurting anyone, I think you should know that you can do absolutely anything you want. 🔮 “Hurting” doesn’t include when you do the things that make you happy but others don’t like it or have a difference of opinion. Keep doing those, it’s okay I promise. If everyone walked into boxes that people want to put us in no one would be doing anything. The only validation you need is your own :) Keep being happy because you’re living in your truth and not anyone else’s and keep being an example of how we can coexist by not putting others down when someone does things you disagree with.
Be the light that helps someone realize the many ways we can all accept one another for how we are and at the same time don’t necessarily have to walk the same path.

So I’ve been doing a lot of thinking lately, about what makes me happy and what doesn’t. What I’ve come up with is a daily exercise that I do in the mornings to help me realign with my greatest self ↓
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🔮 acceptance for things as they are and the things I cannot change + recognizing where I CAN create positive change in my life ↓
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🍯 being responsible by noticing the things or habits that make me unhappy and understanding the way these things affect me/ why + knowing when and how to cut them out of my life ↓
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🧚🏻‍♀️ most importantly noticing the things that DO make me happy- my loved ones, yoga, nature, coffee, my guitar, singing, teaching- and finding way way WAY more opportunities for those things to consume my heart and time! ↓
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I love you, you’re not alone, no one has their shit together and it’s beautiful ;)

Okay let’s do it.... Let’s talk about money 🙈 I’ve been reading this book called You are a Badass at Making Money by @jensincero & honestly it’s changed my whole outlook on “money”. Go read it, seriously it will change your life! I’ve learned so much about manifestation + energy frequencies with her writings!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I used to be in the mindset of, man it’s hard to earn it, to be taken seriously, to save, idk if I’ll ever have enough to pay off my credit card debt from divorce, moving, life, not to mention all the icky feelings that come along with openly talking about money😅
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Some things I’ve learned so far that I think are important for everyone to know and do:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Stop thinking about money in a negative way, it buys you food so you can eat, it pays your water + heating bills, it gets you cute dresses and fun experiences and it supports your life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Think of how much you could benefit the world if you rewired your brain and kicked it into badassery gear to make some serious money & used it to create serious changes! You could donate to good causes, create experiences for people, build communities, use your impact to end plastic pollution. Stop for a sec with the energy you send hating on “rich” people & the way they spend their money, hurting the environment, promoting unattainable beauty standards 🙈 we all do it sometimes(envy others for being rich).. instead think of what YOU could do if you focused that energy on the positive impact YOU can make by having the money available to do so. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Realize there is money in everything, we are surrounded by abundance & opportunities, we just have to be open minded enough to see it & align with it! It’s an exchange of energy 🌼
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Unlearn your unhealthy habits & make new positive patterns around money. I am worthy, I am ready, I am willing to try new things to align with abundance & stop giving myself a hard time. The more you think I don’t have enough or I wish I had that, the universal energy will hear it & say, oh not enough? You aren’t grateful for all that you already have? CONTINUED💭👇🏽👇🏽

🌿 be patient with all that is unsettled in your heart; sometimes things need time to fall into place, and will happen only when it's best for you. - @markanthonypoet
Patience is something my practice has taught me a lot about. I'm still no expert, but I've learned that letting go and moving with the ebbs and flows of life will make it a lot easier on yourself than holding on to something you really wanted or maybe even had. The truth is in this quote, things will happen when it's exactly right, no sooner and no later than the universe intended for you. Everything happens just as it should,
let go. ✨🌼 👁 inspo - always @nude_yogagirl
Do you see what I see ? 🙈 I feel like this shape looks like ovaries ⚡️
