I’m grateful to have friends who help me grow while still accepting me where I am and encourage me to practice self-love. 💗 I decided to pick back up the practice of having gratitude buddies! Every morning a few of my friends and I are going to text each other 3 things we’re grateful for. It feels really good- I definitely recommend 😊👍 |

“Listen to your inner voice…for it is a deep and powerful source of wisdom, beauty and truth, ever flowing through you…Learn to trust it, trust your intuition, and in good time, answers to all you seek to know will come, and the path will open before you.” – Caroline Joy Adams 💗 |

"The harder you are on yourself the weaker you become.
Being hard isn’t the same as being persistent or determined.
Being too hard on yourself is the same as being cruel.
You do not, never have, and never will deserve cruelty."
You deserve love. We all make mistakes- what matters is that we grow from them. Breathe deep, relax, and love yourself unconditionally 💫 |

Has anyone else experienced a Temescal Ceremony?
Basically, you’re in an extremely hot sauna for 2 hours while a shaman burns medicinal herbs and leads you through chants and meditations. I went in having no idea what to expect and came out feeling like I had shed a layer of myself that I’ve be outgrowing for awhile now. The first part of the ceremony brought everything to the surface. I realized I’ve been holding on to so much fear- fear of failure, judgement, rejection, not being loved. I could feel the weight of it on my heart and throughout my body like it was physically there. I couldn’t believe I’ve been carrying this feeling for so long without even realizing it.
About 3/4 of the way through ceremony it got so hot I honestly thought my body was going to burst into flames- like that scorching feeling when you accidentally turn the shower faucet too far, except you can’t jump away from it because it’s all around you. Our shaman finally announced that anyone who wanted to leave could do so, but first we needed to bring our heads and hearts to touch the ground. When my forehead reached the floor, I was surprised to find it actually felt cold. My heart rate instantly slowed down and I began to regain control over my breath. With each exhale I felt the fear energy flow out of my body and into the earth. I felt a profound sense of blissful calm as it left me. I felt what it was like to simply be and exist as the pure essence of myself without being restrained or weighed down. I’ve never felt so light.
It’s not that this experience removed the fear and pain energies permanently. I can still feel them creeping in and out, making different parts of my body and mind feel heavy. But it did show me that it is possible to release them and be free. ✨
It felt so amazing to cool off in the cenote after this. This Acro pose had always been scary to me but I’m finally trusting my ability to support myself. Thank you @andrew7sealy for reminding me I don’t need to be afraid and @amirimage @bluecosmiceagle @tawnyjanae @oneluckyguy @kachinafemme for experiencing this with me 🙏
