Detachment

Truth ~ you need to be very mindful who you surround yourself with and what you chose to spend your time doing. 😉

Reclaim your presence. If someone doesn’t honour who you are ~ do not feel obligated to ‘put up – fake up – settle – or anything else! You must take care of you. You do not need permission from anyone. 😁

Detachment is all about freedom to be limitless and open to receive your dreams with ease.

I have been practicing detachment because it’s essential for true surrendering to the universe and gives you complete freedom. 💖

E.g.. I’m not attached to my location I call home. I can see myself living happily in other countries. I can see potential in many locations and know I am free to jump through any doors of opportunity that comes my way. I am not holding on ~ im ready to leap and fly when it’s time. 🌴

It’s ok to not follow the society rules of how you should do things. Stop living for other people’s approval. I detached from my extended family. Because most of them were judgmental, negative or put themselves on pedestals. 💖

It’s ok to cut friends off too. I detached from alot of friends who just wanted to gossip about others, judge others and complain about life. I realized being nice to everyone is not acceptable for me. I decided to chose love. To chose positive people and supportive loving friends.💖

Chose YOU. Don’t settle due to jobs, locations, family, or friends. Be FREE. You are here to live your life your way! Self awareness is #1! 💐

Self LOVE Painting Party

Art is a phenomenalwomangreat way to connect with your inner Goddess, and create unique masterpieces

Once I went to a celebration of life funeral, for a friends aunt who passed away after a battle with breast cancer.  At the celebration of life event, which had taken place at a magical banquet hall; there were tables of items she loved, and what caught my focus were her paintings.

She painted flowers, circles, and some abstract art, all with her breasts.  It was a way for her to celebrate her feminine body before she removed them. When I seen her paintings, I got inspired. I thought it was such a beautiful gesture to do for yourself. “Why wait for a disease to celebrate your feminine body, and paint with your breasts.” So I decided to host an event for my friends to honour our feminine Goddess bodies and LOVE ourselves without waiting. To step into our sensual side, to paint with our breasts and let go of judgement. Enjoy the process. We all have a formed thought about our breasts. Some of us love them, some of us feed our children with them, and some may also hate them. We think it should be bigger, smaller, pointer, rounder, or firmer.

This is why I wanted to create a party to celebrate being a Goddess. To embrace all of our bodies, no matter how we feel about them. To accept our big, small, saggy, firm, or scarred breasts. I told my friends to bring their own paints and canvas. It was such a sacred event, we all met at a yoga studio. We had beautiful empowering music on, which helped us get in the mood to relax. Then we sat in a circle, it was on International Women’s Day too, which was not intentional, but divine timing indeed.
Before we began, I smudged each of us, and passed around a talking crystal so the other Goddesses can share why they want to do this. It was so beautiful to hear, some said “to teach my daughters to love themselves,” “to accept my body as it is,” “to get over the idea that I should have implants,” “to love my breasts, even though I had breast cancer and have only half a breast left on one side.” It was very moving; my heart was so touched by all the energy in our circle.

I have this crystal that is rough on the outside, looks like a plain, bumpy, dull stone. That is cut in half; in the middle you see beautiful, shiny, clear quartz crystals. I gave a story with the stone, which goes like this:

“We each judge ourselves. We think ‘if only I lost 20lbs,’ ‘I wish I looked more like so and so,’ ‘my butt is too big,’ ‘my butt is too small,’ ‘I am too short,’ ‘I am too tall,’ ‘I am not pretty,’ ‘I am boring,’ and so on. We judge ourselves based on what we think we are, on the surface. It is a bad habit that we picked up in our society. We need to stop judging ourselves, just like this stone. On the outside it may look rough, ugly, and nothing special. But on the inside it’s a glistering star. Just like US. We are all amazing, unique, sparkles of light. We need to embrace our spirit and remember that we are here to love ourselves, not judge ourselves.”
Its true, we can’t judge a book by its cover, we can’t judge a person by the size of their pants, or bra for that matter. We are all special, and need to be confident in our ability to share our love to others and ourselves. Then after we each shared why we were here; we all scattered around the yoga studio, and had our private space to create beautiful masterpieces. It was truly an amazing experience. We placed our paints on a small plate, then we dipped our breasts in the paint. It was like a meditation, as we were all in our Zen, private space just connecting to our Goddess and painting from our hearts.

Some of us were shy, some of us weren’t shy, I made sure everyone felt comfortable. Some of us were moving to the music, swaying our breasts from one side of the canvas to the other. Gliding with ease. While others were plopping their breasts like stamps on the canvas, with confidence. Each of us had our own way of creating the paintings, and it all turned out beautifully. Each of the art pieces looked different and represented each of our unique Goddess power.

It felt empowering because we accepted our bodies fully, and we created a strong magical piece of art that will always remind us of this sacred experience. That one celebration of life event, planted the seed in my soul to organize this Goddess circle for some friends. I received tons of positive feedback, and others are waiting for me to host this again. I think every woman should try this at least once, go ahead. Buy some paint, buy a canvas and go explore your Goddess-ness with your breasts. It was not a sexual experience; it was a powerful, sacred, and sensual experience. Which I would love to host again.goodesslove

My Son, My Teacher – Living with allergies

super isaiahI can remember the day my son Isaiah (3rd born) had his full-blown anaphylaxis shock like it was yesterday. It was Oct 2009, Thanksgiving weekend; he was only 18 months old.  We just got home from shopping at Costco, and I gave him a healthy snack of pesto and toast while I was putting away the groceries.

I noticed his lips got swollen, and I didn’t understand why. I carefully watched his body and noticed he was getting hives. I gave him some Benadryl and thought he was going to be fine. Then he said to me “ME choke, ME CHOKE!” (Thank goodness he was smart and started talking very early). This was his way of telling me he can’t breathe. I gave him his puffers (yes he has asthma too, but that’s another story) and realized this is VERY serious so I called 911.

I saw him swell up beyond recognition. When we got into the ambulance his Oxygen level was down to 90%, which meant he was really struggling to breath. When we reached the hospital I was relieved, yet I was scared! He looked like “The Thing” from the movie Fantastic Four.  The Doctor immediately gave him an Epipen shot and hooked him up to oxygen and other high tech machines that monitored his heart etc. He needed to get 2 Epipen Shots and we had to spend the night at the hospital.

The Doctor told me “If you didn’t get here when you did, any later he would have DIED.” I honestly was in FEAR mode the entire time. I kept surrounding us with reiki, praying, calling on Archangel Raphael for healing and felt helpless. We had to go see an allergist who sent us to get his blood tests done to see what exactly he was allergic too. I didn’t realize that Pine nuts are in Pesto sauce and that is what triggered his anaphylactic shock.

Finally the blood results were in:  0.35 and under means normal – the person has no allergies, and his results for the pine nuts were 1.35; which is why he had that severe reaction. His results to peanuts are even worse: 40.00; which means that he can get a shock from just being in the same room and touching a peanut.  When I found out these results it took me a few days to let it go and adjust to this news. The allergist said it’s very rare to grow out of these allergies but I believe in miracles so I KNOW that anything is possible.

So I had to ACCEPT this new reality for our family. Of course I am human I had all the “what ifs” in my head. “What if he kisses a girl as a teenager and she had peanuts and he dies… What if I am not there with him to protect him, and he accidentally has peanuts” etc… I knew that it was my fear talking and fear is EGO – I chose to stay in Spirit. It was a challenge; I had to learn everything I could on these new results. I am so thankful to be in Canada where everything is labeled in the ingredients and marked “Peanut Free”.

It was hard watching my 18 month old go through this; once again I had to grow from this experience. Honestly it was a big step for me; I was blaming myself for his allergies, thinking: “It must have been because I ate a lot of peanuts when I was pregnant”. (I used to make protein shakes with chocolate Vega and 3 tbsps. of organic peanut butter every day.)  I always had a strong faith in God/Universe and knew that God doesn’t give me anything I can’t handle. My metaphysical spiritual beliefs assisted me in letting go of this fear, letting go of blame, and accepting.

My spiritual beliefs are, that we chose our experience before we got here on Earth. That as a soul, we decide what we want to experience on our trip to Earth; we chose our parents, our family, and our path. So I had to trust that Isaiah chose this experience, that as a soul he decided one day ” Hmmm I am going to go to Earth School. So, so what if I want to come back home to the Spirit world, how should I exit the Earth Plane? Well, I will pick peanut allergies. That way if things get too much to handle on Earth I can have a quick exit point back home”. Yes this may sound very foreign to some of you, but it really helped me in letting go, trusting that this is as it should be.

Today my son is 6 and a half years old. He is very smart. Before he eats anything from anyone he asks “does it have peanuts?” and he recognizes the peanut-free label on foods and gets so excited when something is peanut free! He is my teacher, my angel! He has assisted me in my growing journey. Life is a process of continual growth! I learnt a lot from this experience:

1.     Let Go of Blame – It has nothing to do with what I ate when I was pregnant, I can’t control everything. It’s part of Isaiah’s path, I had to Trust and Let go.

2.     Let Go of Anger – Yes I was angry saying to myself “WHY ME… I am a good person, I don’t deserve this”. But my wonderful husband said to me once “WHY not YOU?” That was my reality check. YES he is right, why NOT me? He also made me realize it’s not a big deal, there are a lot of worse things that can happen and we need to be Grateful for his health.

3.     Acceptance – I had to ask myself “What lessons am I learning with this experience” I had to remember that it’s all in God’s hands. Educate myself and educate Isaiah; that is my role.

4.     Teach others- I love inspiring and teaching others and this experience has given me something I can use to help others on their path as well. To trust and let go of fear yet again.

5.      LOVE – LOVE heals all. Love helped me to let go of my fear and to trust that everything is going to be all right. Love is the best medicine. I surround my family with LOVE every day.

I found this great poem on LOVE. May your life be Filled with love and remember TRUST that YOU are not given ANYTHING you can’t handle.

“There is no difficulty that enough love will not conquer;
No disease that enough love will not heal;
No door that enough love will not open;
No gulf that enough love will not bridge;
No wall that enough love will not throw down;
No sin that enough love will not redeem…

It makes no difference how deeply seated may be the trouble;
how hopeless the outlook; how muddled the tangle; how great the mistake.
A sufficient realization of love will dissolve it all.
If only you could love enough you would be
the happiest and most powerful being in the world. “——Emmet Fox

 

IT is true when you embrace difficulty nothing can bring you down; you will have this inner knowing that there is a lesson here. That this experience is really helping you become a better version of yourself.
