Stand in your own Light
 
28.png

Don’t be afraid to stand in your own light.

Nowadays it’s so easy to catch yourself thinking about what OTHERS would think and using that outcome as a deciding factor of what YOU think, eat, wear, say, write, share. But if you can catch those moments, then in that moment you can make a conscious decision to rewrite your story about “XYZ”. And don’t ever feel guilty about those moments because we ALL have them.

Especially in such an advertising heavy world. We have social media stories, posts, television ads, YouTube, radio, the list goes on. Truthfully the majority of the stories we tell ourself about life philosophy, money, etc, it’s not our own but what we were taught to tell ourselves. Only in those moments of identifying when a thought or choice may not be fully your own are you able to actively choose what comes next.

Celebrate those moments because with them, comes massive growth.

Capricorn Full Moon & Lunar Eclipse
 
Hello Mama Moon… we send our love and Gratitude!

Hello Mama Moon… we send our love and Gratitude!

Incoming Full Moon Magick! Our next full moon is on July 16th and in the sign of Capricorn. The full moon is a beautiful time to celebrate your intentions coming into manifestation and soak in gratitude. We will also have a Lunar Eclipse. Thank you eclipse season!

This moon we are walking through the earthy vibes of Capricorn. Say hello to space to breathe, and detox from negativity. Take time to appreciate all that you have let go of, and really bask in it. Welcome and appreciate this time of growth and healing as well.

“The wilderness is healing, a therapy for the soul.” —Nicholas kristof

This Full Moon in Capricorn is also a time to create your “To Manifest” list. What are you committed to? What do you plan to transmute into your physical reality? What are you willing and committed to creating?

With the full moon, comes full moon fun right?

Full Moon in Capricorn must haves for us:

Here is an essential oil blend you can add to your diffuser or make a roller bottle/spray to enjoy the energy this moon offers you! One of our favorite practices is finding an affirmation that aligns with our energetic intentions and using that as a mantra when we apply our oils, or add them to the diffuser.

Embrace the highest version of yourself with this Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse. There are no limits to what you can manifest and what you can create!

We feel that one of the most important elements in any full moon ritual or practice, is that of Gratitude. For this we created Full Moon Blessings Journal Pages, and hope that you find that it serves you in discovering more about yourself, and what you are grateful for! Add them to a 3 ring binder, or your Grimoire so that you can look back to each moon cycle, and witness your blessings and your growth!

Meditation: Inside The Sacred Circle
 
EXCLUSIVE.png

We wanted to share some of the incredible magick that is Inside The Sacred Circle with you, here on the blog. With over 13 different categories, there are multiple ways for you to fill up your energetic cup, so that you can in turn pour your light into others, even more. Today we wanted to share about The Sound Bath.

The Sound Bath is mostly made up of meditations but also has guided Audio Yoga flows. In this space you will find different Meditations and Audio Yoga Flows that cater to evoking specific needs or celestial occurrences.

But…

Why is meditation an important element of The Sacred Circle?

We believe that Meditation is a crucial element to mental, emotional, and physical wellness. Meditation is a beautiful way to tap into your higher self, explore your chakras, and let go of that which does not serve you. It is a way for the mind to uncover elements of the self that need more tenderness and care, and also elements of strength and fire that you can fuel.

Currently, at the time of writing this post, these are the meditations that are available to those with a Membership to The Sacred Circle:

  • Renewing Affirmation Meditation

  • Gratitude and Heart Glow Meditation (Heart Chakra)

  • Libra Full Moon Meditation

  • Scorpio Full Moon Meditation

  • Summer Solstice Meditation

  • Confidence and Boundaries Meditation (Solar Plexus Chakra)

  • Releasing Anxiety Meditation

  • Sacred Creation Meditation (Sacral Chakra)

As new tracks become available, they are uploaded to The Sound Bath for our Sacred Circle Members. Nearly all of our Meditations are approximately 10 minutes long, and are guided with beautiful accompanying music. If you’d like a sampling of our meditations, you can access what we have available for free in our Resources.

Remember that this is just ONE of the categories Inside The Sacred Circle to evoke the Divine Feminine in you.

Why should you Join The Sacred Circle?

Regardless of age, where you are in your journey and life path - we all could use a little more Magick in our lives. We all crave divine alignment, learning how to co-create with life and find our flow, in order to live more peacefully and balanced. It’s a never ending learning process, even for us as the creators. We’re always students first and that’s why even WE use our own membership everyday

The Sacred Circle is for

  • The stay at home mom who needs to start taking care of herself again

  • The badass entrepreneur woman who needs to balance her work and life relationships

  • The more mature woman who’s in a later phase in life who craves to feel Magick in her everyday life

  • The young woman who feels like she doesn’t have a tribe or place she “fits in” to become part of a tribe of supportive and strong women from all walks of life

Why should you join? 

You should join because the infinite resources that are updated every month to help rejuvenate, revive and refuel your soul will set your life on fire in the biggest yet most peaceful way.

We would love to welcome you into the Sacred Circle today, to provide a space to help you Shine, invoke the Divine Feminine in you, and help you learn to align and find your flow!

Declutter your Life, Mama
 
TMS Instagram Pics-4.png

More often than not, we as mothers, roll with it, fully intending to get rid of things, donate, and have that garage sale. In the midst of it all, sometimes overwhelm creeps in and we lose sight of what it is that we want. Today, I'm sharing some of my favorite tips to help you start to declutter your life.

So... here you are, finding yourself overwhelmed to no avail, and I’m sure you feel like your home looks like a hurricane just blasted on through. Don’t worry, I’m going to help you tackle the mess, and even help you tackle those tiny toddler tornadoes that spin out of control all over the place!

One of the first things I wanted to share with you, and probably the most important thing I am going to share with you, is to give yourself grace throughout this journey. I can’t help you out if you aren’t going to be kind to yourself in the process. This means that if you are starting on one of your projects, you simply cannot allow the negative voices to become your peanut gallery, or anti-cheerleading section. It's time to tell that negative voice in your head, the one that tells you you're not “____” enough or your “_____” is too big, or too small... you know the voice... it's time to tell her to get a life. You don't need to listen to her negativity anymore.

Think about it. If your best girlfriend was sitting next to you, and she was telling you out loud... all of those negative things that you tell yourself, would you still want to be friends with her? I don't think anyone would want to stay friends with someone that was constantly crushing their self worth and self esteem. So why do we continue to do this to ourselves?

I hope you look your beautiful self in the mirror today and tell her how much you love her. I mean it. Go look yourself in the mirror. See your beautiful eyes... they have seen so much. See your smile... your smile has brought joy to so many people in this world. You are an incredible woman and you deserve to feel, love, joy and happiness. Can you see how vital this is to your success in taking care of the things going on around you? I used to think that “Self Care” was so hard, and that I didn’t have time for any of that stuff. I had so much to do and not enough hours in the day to get any of it done.

In reality, I would be productive, but I was stressed out, I was grumpy, and I wasn’t truly able to serve my family from a place of gratitude with all that grouchiness I was carrying with me. As soon as I realized what a difference it made in my own happiness, and of course my family’s, I made a promise to myself that I would never cut out my self care again, and that I wouldn’t let negativity plague my mind anymore. I committed to tea, quiet time, reading inspirational texts, journaling, devotionals, coffee, a yummy breakfast, vitamins, lighting candles, yoga and meditative breathing. I don’t do all of everything, every day, but I do the things I know are going to fulfill me and bring me the energy I need to take on what I can. (This is why we created The Sacred Circle!) I also don’t beat myself up when things don’t go according to plan. I cannot even begin to tell you how terrible a habit this was for me. I definitely have glued on the perfectionist hat before, and still to this day I’m prying off pieces of that hat from my head. It’s totally ok to see your self care for the day as taking a few deep breaths, sipping on something yummy, sleeping in for another 20 mins, or a quiet soak in the bath tub.

Don’t turn your self care into a chore. When we stop and really think about it, and think about where we are limiting ourselves, and putting up road blocks, we can get a clearer vision of where we can begin our self care.

  • Are you more prone to negative thinking?

  • Are you more prone to procrastination?

  • Are you making excuses for why you cannot do certain things?

  • Are you limiting your self with your beliefs about what you can and cannot do?

If you identify with any of this, I challenge you to ask yourself, “Is this serving me in any way?” Recently, I had a morning, facetime coffee visit with my mom, and we were chatting about this topic in particular. Seeing as my mom has been around 28 years longer than I, I know and truly value the wisdom she has to share. It was obvious then, that I share some of her insight on this topic.

Here is what my mother Martina had to say,

“When you are looking to overcome your own obstacles inside your head as to why you cannot do the things that are ‘overwhelming’ you... you can come up with all these reasons why you can’t do these things. BUT, all you need is to find one positive, to drive you forward. Don’t concentrate on the act of doing something, concentrate on the result. Stop making excuses, and stop giving yourself all these reasons why things are hard. Why can’t you make it fun or enjoyable? Once we stop making a mountain out of a molehill, things begin to flow.”

And it is so true, it all begins inside. If you were expecting some crazy organization techniques today, to help you declutter your life, I'm sorry to disappoint you. When it comes to decluttering, it needs to start from inside of us. I can’t tell you that it is going to be easy to rewrite old thought patterns, and the negative programming you have lived in before, but I can tell you that it will be worth it once you are on the other side of that. Don’t you want to see what that woman looks like?

  • The woman who wakes with ease and energy for her day...

  • The woman who can happily tend to her children when they need her...

  • The woman who can be strong and supportive of her spouse...

This can be you. It all comes with starting from the inside. Mind you, you don’t need to show up as this woman every day, but I’m sure if you show up in this way 90% of the time, you and those around you are going to find so much more to be grateful for.

Now, let’s talk about some practical steps you can take to work on framing your positive mindset, and starting a morning routine that will set you up for a successful day. I’m going to lay out the foundation of my morning routine for you, so you can add to it, take from it, and make it your own. Remember, this is a foundation, you don’t have to do things the way that I do them, or even remotely similar. The key here is to tackle a few little chores (makes you feel productive) and of course your self care (makes you feel good!) so that you can take on whatever lies ahead.

  • Make the bed

  • Tea/Coffee/Honey Lemon Water

  • Inspirational Reading/Devotional (1-2 pages)

  • Check your Planner/Calendar Get fully dressed (shoes included!)

  • Face care/make up (if you wear it)

  • Swish the toilet bowl(s)

  • Eat Breakfast

  • Empty your dishwasher

  • Start a load of laundry

  • Move your body (yoga/walk/exercise)

Maybe this seems like a big list to you. Maybe it seems completely feasible for you right now. Whatever the case, I want you to put something together for yourself that you feel comfortable with. Remember you don’t need to do all of this at once.

It actually took me a month to filter all of this into a regular working schedule. To be honest, this doesn’t take more than 90 minutes of my morning. If you are fortunate enough to have late risers in your home, you can get it all done before they wake up! If not, you have the option of getting up early for quiet time to yourself, or letting everyone know that mommy is going to do her morning routine and you can help when you are finished. Because this routine doesn’t take me very long, it also gives me the ability to stop and take care of my hubby or son if they need something.

Do what works for you, but you gotta start somewhere. I hope this list has given you a tangible starting point so that the physical decluttering flows into your routine more easily. Remember, be kind to yourself. If you are still getting into the swing of things, give yourself grace.

“I may not have done everything on my list, but I am taking care of myself, I am taking care of my family, and I am an incredible woman.”

This is not about inundating yourself with more things to do, it is about finding peace of mind in getting clutter out of your head, out of your home, and establishing a routine so you can enjoy being a mother.

Don’t let those negative voices get you down, and if they do, remember that I believe in you.

A New Perspective
 
67.png

When I first started my yoga teacher training, I was absolutely mind blown.

As I learned and binged books and lessons on all things mindset, energy, Ayurveda, sutras, etc - I thought I knew a lot. I was well educated. However, as I get older and learn even more, I discover that I truly barely knew anything compared to the ancient wisdom that exists, and that excites the hell out of me. Because when I shifted into the mindset of knowing I didn’t know everything - learning became so much more fun, and I became much more receptive to the deep life lessons within even the things I DID already learn.

One of those lessons actually is about actions; on so many different levels. From friendships and romantic relationships, on the meter of making commitments and saying things but not having actions to prove them, but even on a parenting aspect. Something Dalea and I are going to delve into on podcast soon is actions and experiences rather than words and material items. As a parent you want to give your kids the world and spoil them. Which is fine, but when you do that, and you buy ALL the toys and ALL the gadgets - you’ll soon realize they barley play with even a 1/4 of them. They don’t see the value. Not like they do in experiences and love and family time.

This next chapter in California is bringing LOADS of change and mindset shifts for myself and every member of my family. I’m sure my fur baby even realizes it hehe.

Cheers to change and always being a student, FIRST!

Mercury Retrograde
 
Mercury Retrograde  is the perfect time  for Sacred Creation!

Mercury Retrograde is the perfect time for Sacred Creation!

Hold the phone. Mercury is going Retrograde. We aren’t here to tell you that the sh!t is about to hit the fan, because we don’t believe that. We want to help you eliminate fear around this planetary movement and create from an authentic space of flow.

What is Mercury Retrograde?

Mercury Retrograde is a three week period in which the planet Mercury to appears to be in backwards motion. The cool thing here is that all the planets are moving, all of the time. Since Mercury is essentially our sister planet… we can visually see what’s going on.

So, what’s with all the hype?

Well first, we’d like to ask you, what story are you embodying? When we hear "Mercury Retrograde" it's become a social norm to giggle & romanticize being a victim of energetic tumult rather than rejoice in sacred creation and renewal. But WHY? Are you living in a victim mindset about this planetary movement? Time to evaluate perception vs reality. In addition to your current lived out story, what energy are you living in? Are you creating a more positive and abundant energy? It is an energy of worry and fear? What can you shift to live in a space of energetic love?

Reflect & reassess

Grab your mirror, Moon Sister. This is the time to be really honest with yourself in order to reflect and reassess what in your life is working and what isn't. Journal it out. We created a really beautiful resource inside The Sacred Circle to walk you through your current beliefs about Mercury Retrograde and your creative process. Take this time to really dive deep into your current beliefs.

Simply rest

Don’t act just yet… marinate. This is a time to recharge, retreat and allow whatever feelings come up during this retrograde season, to FLOW. Don't fight and resist, just allow it with grace. (Even if it doesn't LOOK so graceful). Remember that Nature Flows in CYCLES. Just like the cycles of the moon, and seasons in the wheel of the year give us space to rest and unwind, Mercury retrograde does the same. Each year we experience three Mercury Retrograde periods. This is a regular period of rest in your cycle of the year. Honor it. Trust it.

When Does Mercury go Retrograde?

The next five cycles of Mercury in Retrograde are:

  • July 7 to August 2 (2019)

  • October 31 to November 20 (2019)

  • February 18 to March 9 (2020)

  • June 17 to July 12 (2020)

  • October 13 to November 3 (2020)

Time to Reignite

Get the matches ready! This is the time to plan inspired action and DECIDE what you want life to look like. Get excited, fuel your fire and run with whatever FEELS GOOD. This is the time to change the systems in your life that you are not happy with. Stop limiting yourself and be accountable for your own life. You are ready. Towards the end of the current Mercury Retrograde cycle, you can begin to plan on when you want to launch into action! Maybe you are already creating and you want to plan the day to share your creation. Whatever space feels intuitive to you, flow there.

Are you ready to Let Go?
 
25.png

When we are afraid to fail, we pass up the opportunity to recover. We are playing small when we do this, and losing the person we could have become. The mindset for success lies in the ability to process failure effectively. Adapting and recovering is all part of the cycle of success!

The best thing to do… Feel the fear and do it anyway. Let your biggest fears be your driving forces that push you forward. Be resilient! Be brave! Take risks! Do one thing every day that scares you, and remember if it doesn’t challenge you, it won’t change you.

I challenge you to ask yourself these 3 questions:

  • What do I want?

  • Why is that important to me?

  • If I don’t do the things I need to, to get what I want, what will happen as a result?

    What do you need to LET GO OF to move forward?

Cancer New Moon & Solar Eclipse
 
TMS Instagram Pics-5.png

What a beautiful celestial gift to have a New Moon in Cancer and a Solar Eclipse! The Cancer New Moon makes its way into our energy on July 2nd.

“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart” ― Helen Keller

Cancer encourages us to feel things even more deeply with its watery vibes. This is an invitation to swim into your authenticity, and embrace all facets of yourself. It is also a time to let what is no longer in your truth to be washed away. There is so much more to you than what meets the eye, so step into that. Allow yourself grace and permission to simply “be you” without casting judgment. Whether you feel like you have a feminine essence or a masculine essence at your core, embrace it, love on it, and flow into it.

Join us at our next FREE Masterclass on July 12th to really delve deeper into these energies, as we help you Discover your Divine Essence and Soul Purpose.

The word that keeps popping up for me for this New Moon is “embrace”. This is really the perfect time to embrace yourself, give yourself even more space to… literally be yourself.

New Moon must haves for us in this cycle:

And here is an essential oil blend you can add to your diffuser or make a roller bottle/spray to enjoy the energy this moon offers you! Enjoy!

Cancer New Moon.png

We also have the energy of the Solar Eclipse, shining light on the emotions we may not be ready to embrace. Breathe into this space. There is no wrong way to move through this process, so again, give yourself grace.
