When I have been in some of my darkest places, my saving grace has always been turning my attention to the practices that make me feel most connected. Whether it is yoga, meditation, ritual, soul friends, plant medicine, or simply breath...the things that give my spirit space, that allow me to inhale the beauty of the present moment are always my medicine. When I am connected to my inner light, I feel myself shining brighter in the outer world.
I grew up feeling like I was the timid, shy, sensitive girl and as I've grown, I have realized that all of the things that I thought made me weak are my greatest strengths. My vulnerability is my wisdom. My careful words are my poetry. My sensitivity is my intuitive guide. Everyone has brilliant and unique gifts inside and it is when we embrace and love all of our parts that we can reach our greatest potential in sharing those gifts. Remember that no one is walking your path and there are no set rules to follow because you are a cocreator with the divine. The rest of your life is still unwritten. So tune in, connect, and ignite your soulshine. And never let the naysayers dim your light. They don't know you like you know you.
