More Is Not Always Better.....
.
As you begin to consciously awaken, you recognize that your entire life is concerned with the accumulation of energy.
.
And the more negative / limiting beliefs that you remove from your inner realm, the more room there will be for fresh energy.
.
Honestly check-in with yourself to see if you have a few beliefs that you are needing to let go of.....
.
An example belief that I’ve had to work on myself is this notion that “more is better.”
.
I think that so many of us get caught up in this way of thinking—whether we feel like we must *always* keep busy to be fulfilled, constantly strive for more to prove our worth, accumulate a ton of unnecessary sh!t, etc.....these are beliefs needing to be undone.
.
To shift this, you will need to commit to stopping your constant pursuit of “more” by trusting that you don’t actually need anything else in order to be free.
.
“More is better” energy distracts us from our spiritual path, because it focuses exclusively on acquisitions, external approval, and the like.
.
And even though I’m glad I received a higher education (because it enables me to do what I love as a vocation).....I don’t believe that peace is found in the sole pursuit of additional diplomas, titles, achievements, etc.
.
The feeling of peace only comes when you are not putting all of your focus on this “more is better” type of mentality.....because, in truth, “more” will NEVER be enough.
.
I’m not saying that you shouldn’t have goals or that you shouldn’t go after an advanced education......but what I am suggesting is that you should begin questioning your intentions behind *why* you believe in the things that you do.
.
Be sure to carefully examine how much of your energy is being used to pursue things that you either A). don’t want.....or B). don’t need.
.
The truth is that as you begin to simplify your life and take an honest inventory of your old beliefs (like “more is better”).....ironically, the things that you once chased after will begin to show up in your life (without even having to pursue them).
.
What are your thoughts when it comes to all of this? Do you believe in the “less is more” motto?

The waning crescent moon, or balsamic moon, symbolizes moving into surrender and letting go. Quiet mind. Open heart. Stillness. A time of rest, quiet, inner peace and tranquility. We prepare for the new cycle of creation and expression in this way.

First day of school at Pacifica Graduate Institute. I’ve never been so excited about a formal education. 😍😍😍😍

❤️ What a hell of a week that was! I turned 35, went through a roller coaster of emotions and learning, and had my pupperoni by my side the whole way! 🎢 I wouldn’t have it any other way! So thankful to be on this path with such amazing humans. It sure isn’t easy, but nothing worth anything is! With this, I’m headed into my last 6 months of grad school! 🙃

It is no surprise that the void revealed an unconscious joker. The trickster is alive within us as a whole. I wouldn't want it any other way #void2021

Ritual. Ritual. Ritual.⁣⁣

Something almost completely absent from my life a few years ago and now a great deal of what makes me feel whole. I’d like to thank...kidding, it’d be too long of a list, cause there’s a lot!

3rd year graduate students: drawing our own vulvas, exploring deeper and deeper into self E V E R Y D A Y, and writing a thesis that will direct our work as therapists. It is too crazy that we are so close to being done. ☁️🌮 so full in my soul to be on this journey with the best of folx.

Life if #ritual - we are always ritualizing it’s either #conscious or not... when #awake and #present we can direct our energy and attention and magnify it with ritual. What are your rituals? #limitlessu #youarepowerful #manifestor #pacificagraduateinstitute #goddess #intention #labrynth @upsidedowncowboy @travel_alchemy

This is me on my last day of grad school. I miss it. I went to the most badass school in the Americas. And i was a part of the most magical, mystical, powerful, deep, insightful cohort to ever walk the Pacifica campus. ::::sigh:::::: I miss it. But carry it with me always. #pacificafrogs2019 #pacificagraduateinstitute #gradschoollyfe

Sometimes I do hair and makeup for photo/video shoots. Sometimes I get to model in them too. Love life’s synchronicities and the opportunity to connect with interesting people like Dr. Stephen Aizenstat.
.
Repost from @dreamtending - If you feel as if the eight hours you spend at your desk barely connects with a deeper sense of truth about your calling— then, in other words, your “true vocation”—tending to dreams becomes a process of uncovering the way back to our destiny, inner calling, and life purpose. “It is extraordinarily valuable to turn to our dreams. Dreams tell us what is happening. They depict the difference between vocation and obligatory employment. They offer ideas about unrealized aptitude and point to inherent gifts” - Dr. Aizenstat. #DreamTending #DrStephenAizenstat

Trapped inside a snowbank- poem written from a night terror I had the other night, along with drawings; explored in grad school today in a depth psych class... I left before our lease was up
I abandoned the ship
I couldn’t take another day fighting inside of it.
So I stayed there as long as I could
Trapped inside a homeless mind
A place where terrors and chaos are easier to find.

These were my friends
What should I do?
Write a note?
Leave some dope?
To help make a Rocky Mountain smooth?
Our house was going under
I left before the fire
I couldn’t stick around to watch
Hipsters steal our tires

They put in a new pizza place
Time was running thin.
I packed my bags and head in a direction
where I thought I could win.
I said bye to the cats
went to say goodnight to the bats
and stared at the stars one final time
From the coordinates of my yard
The moment, it felt sublime
This is the closest thing to a home I’ve had
and now I had to leave.
I did not have the heart to see the forest from the trees.
