I would like to share with you what Coming Out means for me!
I’ve been in a lot of ‘quietness’ lately after finishing up a 5 month house sit. One of the joys being in Mexico and having 2 sweet little fur babies to look after – helped with the transition of my dog Spirit passing. Dogs are such a joy. Yet I have been enjoying some freedom of no schedule 🙂 oh and the beach since I am back in Sayulita – love it her!!
Also it’s been the rainy season so wetter, damper and different – taking all in.
It’s been a very interesting, revealing, expanding, healing deep inner work this year for me. I am so grateful for the lessons, challenges, healing, learning and where I am at – well almost 🙂
I’ve been sitting with a few decisions in my life, reflecting, clearing, staying in the question, quiet time on the beach and walking through the jungle and doing much more photography!
I also have been working on a few Photo competitions and Grants to take my project out stronger.
After learning some things that have happened recently in our world then seeing all the #metoo on Facebook – I knew at an even deeper level that the project I started last year (and got put on the back burner) needs to go forward.
It’s not about sexual abuse or harassment – yet it still is a form of abuse – one to ourself though. When and where does it start? Could have a tie in???
I created a program that has been beta tested and is starting to take off – 21 Days Food & You – Stop the Insanity for anyone that struggles with Emotional Eating, Low Self Esteem or Body / Food Issues. Every day for 21 days you get an email with a tool to use to start creating change in your life and being. They work – I know – I’ve used them and helped myself heal from an eating disorder, low self esteem and body issues.
My Photo project will be moving forward too even stronger – I am working on the details there!!
I feel in my heart it’s time for things to change in this world, women to step back into their power and know their worth and see their beauty and uniqueness – we can do that for ourselves, our children, men and the planet.
We can be Powerful yet Gentle, Beautiful, Soft and Loving at the same time especially with ourselves.
I look forward to this journey and sharing what I submitted as a Proposal – it will be the first time truly coming out of the closet yet with 91% of women dissatisfied with their bodies and more……..the timing is perfect!
Have a great day!!
Thank you for stopping by
Isn’t it time for ALL of us to truly Live What YOU Love?
I mean with all the chaos and dysfunction whether with people or the weather – it’s become clear to me that there is too much low vibing energy going on.
Stressed out people working pay check to pay check, too much chemical laden junk labelled ‘food’, too many scams, depression, pharmaceuticals and I could go on.
Is this really how we are or were meant to live life?
Judgments on what labels one is wearing, who’s the latest gossip talk about, our bodies aren’t the right size, shape or height and so on.
Maybe we need to start looking at things differently?
Everything we need to be happy and live a life on purpose is inside of us, we just need to slow down or stop, go within and remember who we are!
Not always easy in a society that promotes do do do and buy buy buy.
Yes if you look around one can see clearly it’s not working so well!!
There are a lot of energetic shifts going on and even I am still getting clearer and clearer and having moments of being in the crap.
It’s time to come from our hearts, not our heads. Follow our passions, joy and bliss.
I do know that I love what I share on my blog – it’s all part of my life – I like to keep things simple, pure and clean – from what I eat, to what I put on my body and in my mind. My Soul loves sunshine, fresh air, quietness and nature whether that is the rainforest, mountains or beach – beach whenever possible though!
No, I am far from perfect, but when I can I do it as often as possible.
Living in Mexico for the last while has shown and taught me much. Many of these people live on a fraction of what we do in North America yet they are always friendly, smiling and appear to be happy.
To me being happy, conscious and love what I am doing is important – after all isn’t everything energy??
When was the last time you did something that you truly love to do or followed your joy?
I had a Massage / Energy work last Friday while listening to the waves of the ocean, the birds and felt the breeze on my skin – it was one of the best sessions I’ve ever had!
PS Many more photos will be coming as I finally got the start of my portfolio on line!! 🙂
Since staying in the Ajijic area of Mexico I have had the chance the meet some amazing people by being part of the Yoga community and getting out to some events and meeting people. Through the Drishti Center and Ana (an awesome teacher and connector) my name got passed on to meet with Lucia owner of Uranta along side her partner Ian for the project (two more amazing people with great projects on the go and connectors too).
Opening the Atabal Drumming Project with a Yoga class to Drumming as amazing for the adults to experience the beat of the drums at the Drishti Center.
‘Yoga and drumming share the attributes of oneness and the ability to heal and inspire the heart and soul to reach new heights.’
Followed by a week of teaching the teachers ( who I believe most are musicians and very talented and beautiful beings!) from the school where the project is starting – Drumming with Ron Cross from Canada teaching them. Ron has been teaching kids drumming and teachers for more than 20 years – it’s in his blood to wake people up to the power of the drum!!
I got to join in with the teachers playing some – I have not picked up my drum in a few years – made me realize how much I missed it – gave it up when I started doing massage – I needed softer hands!! 🙂 Yet I have participated in drum circles especially in Vancouver on second beach Tuesday evenings in the summer – dancing in the sand listening to the heart beat of Gaia – Mother Earth – what an incredible feeling!!
That is part of the reason Lucia through Atabal started this project (you can read more on this link on the Uranta website). A program designed to inspire dreams, community spirit, and self confidence is the basis of this project.
Drumming goes way deeper than beating a drum – anyone who has been involved with drumming whether it’s the actual drumming part, dancing, listening or in one of many healing circles it has huge impact more energetically, emotionally, spiritually and psychologically than one may realize.
With children of a third world country possibly even more so.
Why do I share this?
I’ve had the privilege of being able to shoot photos of the first round of Gr 1 to Gr 6 students and watch their faces, see the excitement and hear how in even 1 hour they take to it fast and are enjoying it.
It was hard for me to pick photos for this post – as there were so many good ones of the kids to choose from!
What doors could that open?
Especially in the imagination where there are infinite possibilites.
Could make a huge difference on the future of that child – how they think, act, feel and therefore live.
Are you able to help or contribute?
It has been set up to be funded through Uranta – this also is exciting! I love these clothes – Lucia is creative and wanted clothing that was unique, comfy and very versatile – she did well. Maybe you do Yoga, maybe not – but you can wear many items can be worn a few different ways, or layered. I brought many pieces here to Sayulita where I am now for a bit and everything was wrinkly – within a short time the wrinkles were gone :).
By purchasing some Uranta clothing 7% of all sales go to the Atabal Drumming Project BUT also it helps employs single moms who earn a living wage here – which is also another project of Uranta!! So you are helping in many ways by purchasing Uranta!! Yes they ship throughout NA and Mexico!!
(Soon they will be releasing an affiliate side as in like a week or two expanding into Canada and USA – please contact me if this is of interest!!)
Since being in Mexico for the last 10 months I see many big differences between Canada, USA and Mexico – your purchases therefore contributions will be greatly appreciated and will help many children and single moms!!
With much Gratitude
PS Here is the link for the Atabal project with more info.
Also a pic of me in my Uranta!! and there are no affiliate links in this post!! 🙂
What are you choosing in your every day world?
Surrender lower vibrational forms of thinking that limitations are real, that you are not good enough, that you can’t see how.
We live in an infinite ocean of infinite possibilities and potential.
You are suppose to live, follow and love from your heart. Believe in self.
Let the Universe know the how!
When we limit ourselves through our 5 senses to what is real or possible we have to remind ourselves that we do that through filters of lack, our beliefs, our points of view, programs, our perceptions and even our ego and that don’t always support us.
We forget that we are Consciousness that is One with the Source of all that is.
So by thinking and feeling I can’t, I’m not good enough, I don’t see etc then that is what the Universe responds to.
The Universe or otherwise known as the Field does not understand words or thoughts – it only understands vibrations which starts with a thought that leads to an emotion or feeling which creates a vibration.
The Universe always responds.
As you think, act and feel you will receive.
I am choosing Self Love, Love, Joy, Bliss, Gratitude, Passion, Health and Abundance.
What are you choosing?
