Damn I loved this: Anti-Hurry Allotment.

Are you missing from the visual story of your life?

A recipe for dreaming… complete with what appears to be a seriously delicious Garlic Soup recipe.

Here’s the thing – we are all just walking each other home.

Going to the source. YES.

Pecan pie in a baked apple?! I agree with all of this.

I really adored reading about how the fabulous Grace Quantock runs her two international businesses while living with a chronic illness.

Unconscious acceptance. Which is to say, what shit are you putting up with?

The pull of the moon.

How to fill your home with cheap, beautiful things from thrift stores (without becoming a hoarder).

This week I’m seeking pleasure by… Oh the nesting, will it ever end?! I hope not. Right now, I am filled to the brim with joy from cleaning my new house, cooking myself my favorite foods, skipping around my home and reveling in the solitude. I’ve also been particularly keen on the book manuscript I’m hacking away at, Pukka Love tea, and begging Cookie to re-pot my wild succulents that are taking over the living room.

And clean sheet, always clean sheets.

I am…

October 13, 2014

I am beauty for beauty’s sake.

I am hexagon tiles and not going to the bar to scrub my bathtub just because.

I am making my home in the statement: Ask for what you need.

I am tightly bound, laced-up, but unraveling.

I am open to receiving.

I am gathering women in truth everywhere that I travel.

I am tulle skirts. Hooded sweatshirts. Gold bangles. Motorcycle boots.

I am nesting. 

I am energy grounding deeply, crawling along the earth. An intricate root system taking over the yard.

I am ancient mama love.

I am loud celebrations.

iam

I am striped comforters and hot pink altars.

I am rosebuds beneath your feet and the golden shells that catch your eye.

I am blooming feminine and learning to be unendingly gentle. 

I am coddled when I am sad.

I am 50 Shades of Grey for the 30th time.

I am brave love.

I am the liminal expanse where sand meets the coming tide.

I am the aloe plant in my living room that outgrew it’s pot six months ago.

I am bergamot and clary sage.

I am granting myself permission.

Brave Love is BACK! We begin November 1st. Join us.

Who cares what others think?

The brilliant Nona Jordan is running a brand new class called Surf Lessons about tapping into your wild money flow and natural abundance… and I am willing to bet that you’re going to love it.

What are you unconsciously committed to?

I absolutely adore the sensuality of these images.

Does discipline equal freedom?

If you’re looking for a new career… start out by creating your hell no list.

Why I won’t be praying for patience

YES :: No mud, no lotus.

Anna’s body gratitude meditation is so very gorgeous.

I am devoted to dreaming about my ideal life.

This week I’m seeking pleasure by… peeling back the layers and being as sweet to myself as possible. This has included banana + almond butter toast, Gilmore Girls on Netflix, nesting in my new apartment, and doing laundry, as slowly as possible. I am changing with the seasons and I’ve been heeding the call to be majorly gentle.

P.s. I will start writing here again this week. Truly. Honestly. I have so much to tell you. xx

Really loved this one… Embracing feminine energy in entrepreneurship.

This week I’m seeking pleasure by… watching a whole bunch of Dexter, on my couch and in my new living room, recovering from the mayhem of the last two weeks. Cooking slowly in my new kitchen. Moving intentionally. Readying myself for next week’s Restore Retreat (SQUEAL) and allowing my imagination take the lead.

This week I’m seeking pleasure by… This week you guys. I have bronchitis. I have been moving for the last two weeks and it’s been really rough. So! Pleasure has been found in sleeping late in my new sunny bedroom, drinking only the best coffee, doing my laundry (finally), and gathering seashells and special rocks to send in the care packages to the beautiful women signing up for In Full Bloom.
