"The moment we override our hunger for substance, settling for whatever's handy, we are choosing our own unconsciousness. Whether with relationships, pastimes, or the food and media we consume, if what we are taking 'on-board' lacks real nutrition, we will pay for it with a feeling of disconnection. Seductive as it may be to fit in, the magic is in holding out for what brings you alive. Anything less is a decision to relinquish your power and creative potency." .

I love this because it’s true. I get messages sometimes saying that it couldn’t have been that bad for me if I’ve recovered the way I have. Trauma is trauma. We have all been through it. It’s not something to compare. I lived the WORST days of my life with that man. He brought me to my knees and I didn’t want to live another moment. The police actually broke us up! I’d never been into a police station until the night the narc tried to kill me. Just over 4 years ago, the narc fucked up. He knew he could abuse me and that I was too embarrassed to ever speak up but one night, he didn’t realise our neighbours were watching. The police were called and they came and took him away and i was given an intervention order the next morning to protect me and my kids from him. That’s how I got away. Then I had a cop who would call me everyday and tell me that I was worthy of a good life. I didn’t believe her and I wanted my old life back because I didn’t know any better. I was so lost. I didn’t want to live this ‘uncertainty’. I never thought I would heal. But I did! With help!! The narc used to tell me al the time that I would never make it on my own and that no one would want me. Well guess what? I’m making it on my own and people want me. And I’m so happy. It’s funny because the only time I’m miserable is when I have to go to court and see him. I feel how toxic he is. I feel when I’m around other toxic people too now and I keep well away. There are loads of lovely men out there and I’m actually not scared to meet someone, I’m just not looking. I’m busy just ‘BEING’! I live all 4 seasons now. Not just grey skies! I live for the beach! And car rides and plane trips!! The bad memories are just memories now. I even tried EFT therapy which changes the emotion I felt to the bad memory. They use it on soldiers and it’s amazing. You can heal! I’m proof! It takes time and it’s so damn hard in the beginning because of our feeling of hopelessness and betrayal. Our mind is so clouded, we don’t know whether we’re coming or going. But if you stay away from the narc and their words... their poisonous words, you will heal with time and help. You will make it because you’re so worthy 💗

"It’s said that after arriving in a new place, we will have replaced the entirety of the water in our bodies with that of the local watershed in just a few days. Though these adaptations happen at a biological level, we are vastly unconscious of the implications a place has on our psyche. Just as humans carry an energetic signature, so too do geographies. However, like fish swimming in water, we are rarely aware of what energy a place holds until we leave it, or return to it after time away." .

It is so easy to live life from one day to the next, from one habit, one compromise to the next. Time, our joint human invention has a funny way of tricking us: one day we’re chasing dreams and the next they are chasing us. . I like to ask those who matter to me, how they see themselves at the end of their lives. How do you want to spend your last ten minutes? Who do you want to die as? . It’s not about accomplishments nor belongings - but about becoming and belonging. If you’ll die the same person you are today - whether in two weeks or fifty years - would you be proud of your journey? . And if you knew you can live another two hundred years, would you live and love the same? . . . #thursdaymood

upliftconnect. At the himba of Namibia in Southern Africa, the date of birth of a chi

At the himba of Namibia in Southern Africa, the date of birth of a child is fixed, not at the time of its arrival in the world, nor in its design, but much earlier: since the day the child is thought in His Mother's mind.⠀ ⠀ When a woman decides she's going to have a child, she settle down and rests under a tree, and she listens until she can hear the song of the child who wants to be born. And after she heard this child's song, she comes back to the man who will be the father of the child to teach him that song. And then, when they make love to physically design the child, they sing the song of the child, to invite him.⠀ ⠀ When the mother is pregnant, she teaches the singing of this child to the midwives and older women of the village. So, when the child is born, old women and people around him sing his song to welcome him.⠀ ⠀ As the child grows, the other villagers learn his song. So if the child falls, or gets hurt, he always finds someone to pick him up and sing his song. Similarly, if the child does something wonderful, or successfully passes through the rites of passage, the people of the village sing his song to honor him.⠀ ⠀ In the tribe, there is another opportunity where villagers sing for the child. If, at any time during his life, the person commits an aberrant crime or social act, the individual is called in the centre of the village and the people of the community form a circle around him. Then they sing his song.⠀ ⠀ The tribe recognizes that the correction of antisocial behaviour does not pass through punishment, it is by love and reminder of identity. When you recognize your own song, you don't want or need to do anything that would harm the other.⠀ And the same way through their lives. In Marriage, songs are sung together.⠀ ⠀ And when, getting old, this kid is lying in his bed, ready to die, all the villagers know his song, and they sing, for the last time, his song. 🎶💞⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #song #sing #self #remember #identity #home #love #community #family #connection #tribe #recognize #keepsinging #belonging #heart #singyoursong #reminder #motivation #inspiration #wisdom #truth #weareone #oneness #unity #peace #love #uplift #connect

#tbt #throwbackthursday #thursdaythrowback ・・・ Royal Signals linesmen, before the “Telemech” tradegroup had arisen who were also the predecessors to the modern Installation Technician trade group’s inception many years later. The two Royal Signals soldiers are looking at a large analogue frame room, similar to ones that are still in use today all over the world and in the UK. Note that, in one of the soldiers hands, he is holding what we would now call a ‘butt-phone’ or a line testing phone, but rather than having the modern digital button configuration, it has a rotary pulse dial wheel on it as the exchange which would have fed this frame room pre-dated any digital communications networks.

We spend so much time longing ... for other situations / things / people, constantly projecting ourselves out of our current reality. What if we focused instead on BELONGING ... to ourselves and the present moment? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this. What does belonging mean to you? And how can we learn to belong to ourselves? 💛 #belonging #innerpeace #innerwisdom #spiritual #spiritualmisfits

naomi_saelens. I heard myself say these words during my presentation: I’ve never been

I heard myself say these words during my presentation: I’ve never been more at ease with myself than where I am right now. And that, in front of an audience – and it was true, somehow I knew in that moment that I was exactly where I needed to be. That I could be nervous about standing there, yet at the same time, steadfast and confident in who I am and what I would like to share. ⁣ ⁣ I’ve come full circle. Half became whole. ⁣ ⁣ It’s been quite the journey. Almost 4 years ago, I arrived in Bali with a heart full of big dreams, but also with a soul that was tired and worn out. You see, I had just come out of a job that left me drained, that showed me more than anything the pain of not believing in who I was and what I had to offer. Sometimes the universe gives you exactly what you need but not necessarily what you want. ⁣ ⁣ And that was also the turning point in a lifelong journey that really was about this question: ⁣ How do I reclaim my sense of worthiness and confidence, of feeling enough and finally feeling like I belong? ⁣ ⁣ You see, I’ve spent most of my life feeling like I was different from everyone else: the outsider. So I did everything I could to find a way to belong. It was never enough. I could never do, have or be enough. ⁣ ⁣ And yet here we are. ⁣ ⁣ It’s not that I never hear that voice of not enough anymore, but I can tell you that it’s so much more peaceful. Perhaps most importantly, I’m at ease with who I am, I am guided by what lives in my heart and what I want to share, and I believe I have something to offer. ⁣ ⁣ This journey brought me the belonging I longed for. Paradoxically, I had to leave home to find it right where it always was; deep within myself. ⁣ ⁣ I’m incredibly grateful to be able to share what I have learned along the way at my workshop this Saturday at The Practice. If this is for you, I would love to see you there. ⁣

After briefly reopening my readings I have closed them down again. They take so much energy from me and that's brain energy I need for my #family and my new books... I love #tarot but my first love is #spirituality for modern life and specifically writing about it. Tarot is a gorgeous little side path. And my book #dirtyanddivine is testament to it's power... But I need to focus and pull my energies together to finish #belonging and start on its sequel - a new book that is tapping at my edges.

These amazing strangers (scroll right) were my tour guides today. Because when you’re in a serious funk, you gotta shake it out and today that meant going on a farm tour and cows. Lots of cows. That’s Sarah on the right. She’s the cow queen of Colorado (I gave her that title because she deserves it). Not only does she drink a gallon of milk everyday (it literally saved her life), but in just a few hours she taught me more about cows that I ever thought I wanted to know, and by the end, I wanted to know even more. Sarah has a beautiful perspective on ranching and animal raising, and shared with me how the connection with these animals effects how she shows up in community, with people, and in relationship. “Ranchers are the some of the kindest people I know. When you learn how to be with and read animals, it effects how you interact.” I’m still continuously in awe of how these random adventures and moments with strangers are able to imprint my neurons with positivity. It took two humans and a sh*t ton of cows, but I’m finally feeling the magic again. 🐮 #connectioncure

These beautiful ladies are resilient, radiant and real. The messiness of life, the challenges that each one face, continue to be met with trust and a continued reassignment of that trust in the Lord throughout their lives. I am a mother of three adult daughters who never cease to amaze me. Watching them reframe their faith in the small day-day things is such a joy. I love my family to the nth degree and can’t wait to see more of their stories unfold. . . . #community #gathering #family #hearttalk #brave #vulnerable #courage #hospitality #mealtime #friends #ubuntu #peace #satisfied #truefood #love #openhearted #friendly #inclusive #together #table #57pearls #austin #calligraphy #handlettering #belonging #generous #liveyourfaith #2019
