Synchronicities… I searched for imagery on reparations to share with my post and had a full circle moment (below). How are you healing ancestral trauma?
Shortly after I started high school I met the principal as I was heading home. He was a very tall, kind black man who shared the same rare family name.

I mentioned this to my grandma who immediately pointed out that my ancestors a few generations back could have owned his ancestors. I was floored. Embarrassed. Ashamed. Curious.

Ancestry has been a curiosity since I was quite young. Our way back ancestors didn’t get much acknowledgement. Their stories were fairly untold. These seemed like secrets and mysteries worthy of exploration.

Much of what I have learned has come through tidbits of data, clues into how we survived. Some required unpleasant digging into family trees to unearth long-buried truths about how my forefathers helped fight for the United States.

I have a grandfather several generations back that fought for the Revolution (and took indigenous lands). His later descendant grandson was enlisted and fought for the Confederacy but shortly bolted. As difficult as this was to learn, I was relieved he is our family’s quitter in that atrocity.

But that grace was small in comparison to tragic fact that my family owned slaves. As I’ve searched for how to absorb, transmute and heal my ancestry, I realized among the clues of our resilience is the literal blood, sweat and tears of dozens of people that slaved for my ancestors to thrive.
Also unknown is whether we have relatives through the rape of black women slaves. I pray this isn’t part of my family history. From what I can tell my tiny bit of African DNA is from my indigenous lineage.
With help from my therapist years ago, I came to see the often abusive ways my grandfather and father made us work for the family were generational abusive cycles that required ending.

If you’re like me, you’ve probably been horrified at the world news — if you don’t live under a rock. I know I’ve been leaning on my nervous system reset tools harder lately.
What I’ve seen with cycles like these is that we tend to desensitize and shut down when we don’t have good coping skills. This kind of coping generally leads to increased stress from: * either resistance to feelings
* not doing the things that help us stay healthy * or really veering off course into self destructive behaviors
But it doesn’t have to be like that.
There’s been a lot of talk about what we can do for the planet and her inhabitants including going vegan.
The fact is eating fake animal protein substitutes come with a lot of environmental problems of their own, including: * mono-cropping with GMOs, pesticides and herbicides that have detrimental impacts on bees and butterflies * tilling of vast amounts of healthy topsoil which kills countless microbes that sink carbon and reduce climate chaos * trucking, processing, packaging and cold storage of mono crops (which increases carbon emissions and favors big agriculture over small famers)
Don’t get me wrong. Eating a plant-based diet is what humans are meant to do. But buying packaged isn’t the solution.

Instead, I want to remind you about the WILDFIT® program and how you, too, can transition to a plant-based ancestral diet without all the confusion.
I’ve added an ebook, EAT LIKE YOU CARE: Health Benefits of a Plant-Based Diet for my Rhythm + Flow Hive.

Are you ready to go plant-based?

I also want to find out what is your Deep Why for considering WILDFIT® and how I can help you transform your curiosity into action?

I’m so committed to helping my clients have transformation so they can move past the emotional and environmental triggers that keep them from doing their good work in the world. So, if you’re ready to take the leap and start on Monday, click the bio link. I’ve still got tons of amazing bonuses and support included.
And if you’re so close, but something is holding you back, message me and let’s start the conversation.

This full Moon and Jupiter transit has been transformative. It’s going to be exact on my sun as it reaches fullness (which was at galactic center at the time of birth). It’s moving over my Jupiter conjunct Jupiter, magnifying all the gifts I’ve been neglecting. So much abundance in our life. Grateful to be alive in this time.
I am full of creativity and am feeling moved to express it in crystallizing how I want to serve the world. I shifted some long-stuck energy this morning. Started Nabhi Kriya and Long Ek Ong Kar meditation. Continuing Self-love mantra too. So much beauty is emerging.
Neptune transit is deepening Dreamtime Alchemy work. This is going to be a core piece of how I work with clients to create a container for transformative healing.
All the old patterns of fear, uncertainty and abandonment are dissolved. I’m forming new neutral pathways and habits of creativity. One of my daily mantra reminders on my phone is “I am worthy to create for myself. This is valuable. “
In the past, being creative for myself seemed indulgent or not valuable because it wasn’t generating money. My understanding of value is so much more expansive now. Creativity is essential.
How are you shifting during this pre-solstice full moon? What will be your new way of being?

I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the water to create many ripples. —Mother Teresa

Remember who you are. Dwell in Possibility and know that all your actions matter. The smile to a stranger on the street. Sitting in meditation to raise your awareness of self worth. Missing the green light. ✨
You are right where you need to be.

My Experience with Sodarshan Chakra Kriya 💫⁣

Yogi Bhajan said that of all the 20 types of yoga, including Kundalini Yoga, this is the highest Kriya. That it cuts through all the darkness and gives you a new start. ⁣
In an article by @kellybroganmd I read a statistic that said this Kriya was studied to be 74% effective at treating depression and anxiety even where medication was ineffective.⁣
With these statements I was naturally really drawn to the practice.⁣

The beginning days of the practice were beautiful. I had more energy, lightness, and joy throughout my day. I was absolutely loving the meditation!⁣
And then as I made it into my last week this week, the subconscious beliefs started to come up. Things I thought I had long since dealt with, and also other beliefs I didn’t even realize were holding me back. ⁣
Deep existential questions at the root of my battle with depression started to arise. ⁣
Is it even possible to make a difference in the world? ⁣
Will my life have any lasting meaning? ⁣
Are we just under the control of people with more money/status/power than us? ⁣
Should I just give up and play my role? ⁣
Are my life goals fuelled by ego, or a genuine desire to heal and connect? ⁣
Deep questions I know 😂 ⁣

Kundalini Yoga is this powerful tool that asks us to step up, ask ourselves the hard questions, and live a life that is about more than just ourselves. ⁣
After experiencing the depth of emotion that comes with those questions, I’m starting to feel a shift in the direction of my life. ⁣
I want my life to start being less about how much I can achieve, and more about how much I can help. ⁣
And I need to re-evaluate how I can better do that. So I’ve decided to turn this 40-day practice into a full 1000- day Sadhana. ⁣
I’m grateful for the depth of this practice and the changes it brings to me on a daily basis 🙏🏼 ⁣

I spent Friday morning in a three-hour meditation. What a life-changing experience. Something about chanting for all the women of the world (be they two-legged or more) was deeply meaningful.

That morning my medicine bag cord broke. Sunday morning I recorded the self-sensory meditation and then my mala broke. I lost the center smoky citrine bead somewhere in the garden. After 30 minutes we stopped looking. Today I asked the garden if I could have it back after I saw all the lovely photos of me wearing them at Zion earlier this month. I went out and found it immediately even after looking there yesterday.

Then a friend posted that her mala broke and she shared that it means you’ve broke through a block or old trait. Given both broke, I guess some things have shifted! The bead felt very cleansed. I will cleanse the rest of the mala in our storms this week and restring it a new.

Anyway, Mantra works if you work it. Let’s keep breaking through the patriarchy!

I’m reflecting on this lunar cycle and relaxing into the dreams and goals I have for the next New Moon.
Dream away wild one.
