THE TRUE PURPOSE OF SACRED RELATIONSHIPS 💥 . People enter relationship for a variety of reasons. Not all of them are for spiritual evolution. . But at the level of sacred relationship, people come together to purposely and consciously elevate each other to their fullest human and spiritual potential, each creating the space for the other to flourish 🌸 . This requires that each person be differentiated and whole. It’s not always sunshine and rainbows, but through surrender, trust, perseverance, and courage, they cultivate the ability to release their boundaries and merge at appropriated times for the sake of unity. . They are whole within themselves, and they aren’t in the relationship to become whole. Because they are whole, they can also suspend their boundaries in the context of the relationship. . They’re coming together to cultivate consciousness. They’re creating a contract to support each other’s evolution, and in order to do this, part of that contract is making space for the other to exist. . This sacred evolutionary space is where the other can flourish and find themselves ❤️ . . . . . #sacredfeminine #lovethyself #spiritualawakening #selflove #sacredrelationships #divinefeminine #selfgrowth #relationships #shadowself #sacredself #consciousrelationships #consciouslove #soulgrowth #love #divinemasculine #authenticity #selfacceptance #sacredmasculine #divineappointment #intuition #awakening #sacredunion #unconditionallove #intuitivehealing #authenticself #higherconsciousness #love #trust #acceptance #surrender

I’ve talked before about how I like to think of the world sometimes. Particularly if I’m feeling a bit anxious or weird about putting myself out there in a particular way. I decide to think of the world, social media and everything, actually, like it’s my own stage. My own channel. And people can either tune in or tune out. Watch me or not. And it’s not up to me to try to convince them to do anything. My job, as I see it, is to keep showing up and delivering on the work that I really feel deep down in my core that I’m here to do To lead the way for others to become visible, to get out of their own way and create their own influence and impact in THEIR worlds. So take that on board. It’s really particularly liberating ❤️ ❤️ ❤️ ❤️ ❤️ ❤️ ❤️ #visible #visiblethebook #author #quoteoftheday #hardwork #hustle #qotd #business #grind #brand #marketing #branding #socialmedia #advertising #successful #entrepreneurs #desire #entrepreneurship #businesswoman #innovation #businessowner #authenticity #personalbrand #soul #thoughtleader

Days go by, and I wonder if this is where I should be. 👨‍🎓 Hearing about his day. Reading books. Solving math problems. Playing games. Building Legos. Transforming Transformers. 👨‍🎓 And I remember, this is a season. I’m going to blink, and he is going to be graduating. So I exhale because I know this is exactly where I should be. 👨‍🎓 These little minds are our future, and we need to give them what they need during this time. My mission is that all parents who want to experience this time with their kids know that they have options. 👨‍🎓 What part of your season of life do you savor the most? . . . #findingpeaceinpieces #seasonsofourlives #childrenareourfuture #youhaveoptions #scheduleyourpriorities #firstgrade

Why don’t we try being less like the rest of the people and actually try to be more like ourselves? // Por que no tratamos de ser menos como los demás y ser más como nosotros mismos ? ✌🏻

It's a snowy day here in Toronto, and as our city bundles up, I'm thinking of this beautiful soul - Rebecca @bexmarie - all the way in sunny California. 🌤 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It was such a joy to coach Rebecca and witness her bring her dreams to life! Her story is a testament to how much can change in 12 months. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Only a year ago, Rebecca was dreaming of launching her own dream business that combined her love of design, real estate and creativity. At that point, she was working full-time as SVP at a PR firm, and her free time was spent with her family -- and particularly caring her new baby, Zoe. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ She *knew* she was ready for a new chapter, but was stuck, nervous to leap outside her comfort zone, and lacking a clear step-by-step path forward. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Fast-forward to today - Rebecca has reduced her hours to part-time, and is now a real-estate investor on a huge-high profile project in LA. She feels excited and alive -- is using her passion for design to create something beautiful - as only she could. In her own words, "the sky's the limit!" 💫 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I feel so lucky to get the chance to work with creative souls like this who are ready to shake things up in their own life - and bring new things into the world. . . . . . #life coach #torontolifecoach #mindsetcoach #coach #leadershipcoach #changeyourlife #confidenceboost #personalleadership #authenticity #personaldevelopment #professionaldevelopment #travellingcoach #travellingfamily #sarahlangcoaching #evolution #confidence #lifegoals #familygoals #careergoals

Reposted from @imzy_aie - So a few days ago, this punk @jpalmua asked me what my love language was and I decided to re read one of my favorite books... Go follow @selfhelpbookclub The 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman ❤️ - “Something in our nature cries out to be loved by another. Isolation is devastating to the human psyche. That’s why solitary confinement is considered the cruelest of punishments.” - The Five Love Languages: - 1️⃣ Words of Affirmation 💬 2️⃣ Quality Time 🏕 3️⃣ Receiving Gifts 🎁 4️⃣ Acts of Service 🍽 5️⃣ Psychical Touch 👫 - Six takeaways from this book: - 1️⃣ Find out what your love language is, and communicate to your partner what you need to have your needs fulfilled. - 2️⃣ Find out what your partner’s love language is, and do what you can to fulfill their needs. This will require empathy and seeing the world from your partner’s perspective. - 3️⃣ Always be open to learning and growing. Grow together, or grow apart. - 4️⃣ Significance is one of the most important human needs. In order to feel loved, we need to feel significant. - 5️⃣ Don’t keep score of wrongs. Resentment, wanting ‘justice’, and dwelling on the past are immature and will inevitably result in failure. “Forgiveness is the way of love.” - 6️⃣ Learn to listen. People often just want to be heard and understood. Instead of interrupting your partner and trying to come up with a solution or advice, be compassionate and listen. - If you want your relationship to thrive, don’t just read this book - memorize it. Read it multiple times, underline / mark stuff, and take notes. - #regrann #selfdevelopment #spirituality #dailypractices #thefouragreements #bookstagram #booklover #spiritjunkie #wisdom #freedom #happiness #lifelessons #empower #wellness #authenticity #selflove #donmiguelruiz #bookstagram #books #book #bookshelf #bookclub #bookclubs #goodreads #reading #read #reading #truelove #love

A BAD ASS - HOW COULD I NOT SHARE THIS?!? - NUGGET OF WISDOM TO A BETTER RELATIONSHIP (that most people don’t realize). 😍 . . 👉 You get a better relationship... 👉 You become more attractive... 👉 You get more desirable, sexy, you’re treated better... 👉 You can be more of yourself and have more fun... 👉 You get more love and affection... ...when you upgrade your relationship with yourself. It’s you. It’s ALL about you. It’s not them. They will treat you 10000000 times better when you do the inner work...unimaginably BETTER. Like, “is this real life?!?”...better. You don’t have to request for them to change, force them, buy new clothes, change your hair, work out more or dull any goofy, silly, nerdy part of yourself. You just need to commit to changing yourself and what’s not serving you on the inside. The way they treat you comes from your subconscious. . . If they treat you badly do you deserve it? No, of course not. But do you expect it? Probably...otherwise it wouldn’t be happening. Your subconscious expects it, is used to or comfortable with being treated this way (even if it doesn’t like it), it’s familiar with feeling that way. You’ve im sure felt it other times with a parent, role model, mentor, teacher, or important figure in your life. It’s how you’re used to being treated in this circumstance. . . AMAZING NEWS: It’s something you have full control over and have the power to change. It doesn’t have to stay that way. 🥳🥳 Woop woop!! . . DONT MISS THIS PIVOTAL POINT: It HAS to happen from within. . . You have to internally change your relationship with relationships. . . If you need help on this, reach out to me. Josh Tarnofsky and I will be teaching this in the Love Evolved - Love Attraction Course. Our members will have the best, most next level incredible, love and passion filled relationships with their partner and themselves 😉. This course is for men, women, people either looking for their soulmate, wanting a better relationship than they currently have or want to take their already great relationship to the next level! Boom! So excited for this!💛 Don’t wait, message me now.

: Meet my buddy James :) A former Army Paratrooper. This guy has been places and seen things. - James is not exactly like us. He is free from everything and lives his life as he sees fit. I have not seen James in months and today, out of no where, I saw him. He knows I love stars and gazing at night so he rips this picture off his book to share with me. - Reflecting: I know people who are "normal" and still act like ass-hats. I can't assume I know why and for the most part it's those with stressful lives and living in fear or to someone else's standards. Seeing James again reminded me of the little things in life... so little but yet so damn important. I told him that I would write to him since I won't be in the area anymore and he was sad and happy for me. I am so glad I met him. Guys, give back to the world. You never know who needs you or support. - - #taoofiron #taoofaction #giveback #bethechange #mentalstrength #mentalconditioning #psychology #performanceenhancement #awareness #selfawareness #stars #galaxy #stargazing #veterans #usarmy #paratrooper #love #peace #genuity #authentic #authenticity

Being in Melbourne means I don’t get to hang out with the Gold Coast Gratitude Gangsters much so I’m pretty excited to be heading to Noosa tomorrow for our annual retreat. . Really looking forward to getting to know these girls more as well as a whole weekend of levelling up my personal and professional development. . When I was a primary school teacher it was the professional development days that were my favourite and I get to have so many more of them in this business. I have a thirst for knowledge and love to progress so development is my jam. . I’m particularly thrilled to be attending the all expenses paid “Limitless Leaders” day and celebratory dinner! Lucky me!!!

Perhaps the great discovery of our time is that we have the power to be conscious creators. As a matter of fact the truth is that we alone create our reality. Other people participate in our reality to be sure, but it is our mental, emotional and physical state that determines what we call into our lives.

So often I hear people talking about their next vacation, their weekend, the end of their work day. . Wouldn’t you think that’s an invitation to look deeper into life and where you’re feeling satisfied and unsatisfied? . We have a choice in all ways to move in a direction of a life they love. 🤔 . We really don’t know how much time we have on Earth...🤷🏽‍♀️💀 . The signs are so simple IF we listen and notice what you’re noticing.🧞‍♀️ .

Absolutely love my train trips to work. Gives me a chance to breathe, ground myself and experience gratitude for the coming day. Never lose sight that a chance to stop is a chance to focus on the things that create feelings of gratitude in your life.

Take some time for play this week... it's amazing what a little silliness (and 🐶 love) can do for your stress levels. And now I’m off to the gym for a run because it gets me out of my head, and then I’ll be practicing my handstands because it’s fun and makes me feel like I’m 8🙌🏽.

Working in alignment with our energy and going with the flow is a key part of living from a connected and inspired place. I used to have very fixed ideas about what I ‘should’ be doing day to day and would plan things out well in advance and then wonder why I was trudging through each day. Rigid schedules are a great way to suck the joy out of life, especially for creative types! Obviously routines can help us make progress, and sometimes we need to just show up and get things done, but tuning into where our energy and interest is naturally flowing can help us stay inspired, motivated and working efficiently. Duty and obligation make crappy motivators and can get very heavy and dull. So I invite you to ask yourself this question. Feel into your body and find out what flips tour switch today. 🌈❤️🦋I’d love to hear in the comments! For me... today I feel drawn to taking some quiet time for myself, moving my body to music and doing some graphic design. Yesterday it was walking in nature, eating fresh fish and planning my next moon circle. What’s turning you on today? ✨🙏✨

Have you ever worn shapewear or a corset? As someone who sold lingerie for years, I can promise you that you can get one area to look the way you want it to, but the truth will always be exposed somewhere else 😆😬! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I am certain that I am not the first person to make this analogy. I think it fits perfectly. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Isn’t that what we REALLY want? To fit perfectly into our lives? To not have to mold or squeeze or stretch to be something we are not? Don’t get me wrong, sometimes a little smoothing or tucking is necessary, but the freedom that comes with the release is oh so sweet. What would it be like if we could mostly reside there? Self-love? Self-care? Acceptance? Peace? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When we live in a way that stuffs and tries to hide obvious truths about ourselves, they will come out somewhere. My hope for you is that it doesn’t appear in the form of a wasted life. Or in physical pain or illness. I hope you have more time OUT of the corset than IN it. Allow your true self to rest and know that it is okay to be you. If there are some things that don’t feel okay, work through them. Process them. Talk to a safe person about them. Don’t stuff them. At least in that sense, you are in control of where they do pop out and you can actually heal the stuff that no longer serves you so it doesn’t pop out at all. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ FREEDOM = PEACE = A GOOD LIFE. Not corsets. The choice is yours.

Be weird, be shy, be loud, be kinder than needed, be silly, be sensitive, be serious or what ever feels right to you. Just be you and don’t change to suit others . That way you will find the right other weirdos that are lucky enough to get to be your friends😊 #beyourself #friends #friendship #authentic #authenticself #authenticity #selflove #happyness #strongmindset #positivequotes

Fields of Destiny Destiny wipes out fields of joy to claim itself in its ultimate act. Of such wipeouts tears trace away the sheer joy of years experienced in living with true authenticity as fact. Chasing dreams like wind blown hats life's mortality stares right back! Our attack is not to challenge destiny it is to seek it with tact. Dying will be our last act but living to create soul is not for mere mortals to learn as a hack. Some come to chase the soul and let the wind honour the hours spend in batting creativity as their destined nack! #origince #original #poetry #shortpoetry #creativesoul #karlagerfelds #teamkarl #death #rip #authenticliving #admire #soul #destiny #fashion #inspiredby #life #authenticity #owntruth #livinglifeononesterms

Now I am sure we’ve all heard the saying that comparison robs our joy, which we all know is true. Comparison leads us to feel low, undervalued, unsucessful, and defeated. The sad reality is all of those emotions appear as real truths in our heads, when they are nothing more than lies. But aside from easily stealing our joy, comparison robs our authenticity. Our fingerprint, uniqueness, and true identity. Comparison comes to confuse us into being something we know deep down we can never be. Not because we lack, but solely because God’s created us with a different DNA. It’s really that simple. I want to urge us to be careful to not find our style based on someone else’s closet, write in our blogs with someone else’s writting style, post on our page based on someone else’s news feed, or set goals based on someone else’s lifestyle. This is dangerous, and will keep us in a constant state of moving backward rather than forward. What is your authenticity? Find it, learn to love it, and then live it out. - @toya.nkanza #Rescued #BeYourself #Authenticity #Identity #YouAreUnique #DNA #StayInyourLane #WomenEmpowerment #Encouragement #PushYourself #BelieveInYourself #LeapOfFaith #GoForIt #JustDoIt #InstaQuotes #InstaInspiration #Goals #Success #Arts #Beauty #BeOriginal #DontDieACopy #MoveForward

I have struggled in my life so much that i was forced to look within and ask myself hard questions to figure myself out. I realized I had to be the common denominator. This is when everything started to change. I realized i was chasing things in life rather than letting them come to me I realized I would change things in my life right before i gained traction and saw real growth...causing me to start over many times. I realized i would tell myself a good story selling myself on a false truths so i would not have to actually take responsibility. I would always try to make everyone else happy with nothing left for me. All i can say is, most business challenges start with getting honest with yourself on a personal level because your business is just an expression of who you are. There is no separation between the two in my opinion So many agents don't look within for the solution they keep looking for outside solutions to solve there business challenges when the real problem is in themselves. (the person running the business not the business itself) They change brokerages , they invest into marketing that totally wastes there money , they create partnerships that are lopsided, they leave a team thinking the grass is greener and MOST end up with the same results if not worse. I was forced to look within and I discovered my income always went up with my self worth. Raise your personal worth and you will see your net worth increase as a natural side effect.

Kinkaku-ji is without a doubt, one of the most beautiful things that I will ever see; I was in shock 😲 But what really surprised me was how people had come all this way to see it, and yet only took a few seconds to take a selfie or two.  There is nothing else to see on the estate, and yet people walked on by rather quickly after taking their photo.  No one was able to stop and stand still. And comically enough, people kept on looking at me as if I was the weird one because I was simply being.  I found the perfect view, and I was just sitting on the gate that lined the walkway, gazing at this masterpiece. I guess in a crowd of moving people, I did in fact stand out; but I am still wondering, how I was the only one transfixed by this moment.  It was a moment of awe in a sacred space of the world.  Why are we so quick to move on to the next thing? We must do better. We must surrender to the moment! —— I was able to visit another sacred space while I was in Kyoto, Sanjūsangen-dō, which means “a hall with 33 spaces”. It’s famous for its massively long hall, which houses 1001 buddha statues. Photography is not allowed inside the hall, and the moment for all of the spectators slowed down significantly, unsurprisingly. Photography is not the the problem though; it is the modern means of doing it that creates so much distraction.  With our phones we take selfies and share them in real-time, which takes us out of the moment … and is not truly photography at all.  Buy a real camera and go for a walk alone, to observe and take pictures of the mundane, of the unnoticeable. And you will find that these slivers of life are sacred too. I was able to do just this while in Kyoto, so I invite you to take a look at the blog and enjoy the beauty captured. — And as for the Full Moon, I will say this: Stop and take notice of your wounds and learn to identify them as a source of strength, not weakness.  For through this opening, all the possibilities shine through. Let go of over-thinking and fears of the future; and release them through your belief in something greater than you. Allow this full moon to help you see the world unseen, and surrender to this moment. 💫 #kinkakuji

What would you do if you knew you could not fail? The universe has thrown this question at me for the past week from all angles. How old are we when we first start to let the negative voices shape our aspirations? At what point in your life did you start to trust other people’s opinions over your own? The small humans I have the incredible privilege of raising have taught me many lessons, one of them being that it’s ok to be your own cheerleader. Imagine what the world would sound like if your favourite musician had stopped writing music when someone told them they weren’t good enough? Everyone sucked at something before they were awesome, but if you listen to the naysayers you’ll never break through J K Rowling was rejected 12 times whilst trying to publish the philosophers stone. You never know what your actions will lead to. Who was the rolemodel you aspired to be when you were young? If there wasn’t one, what’s to say you can’t be that person for someone else? Never underestimate your potential. ‘Live your heart and never follow’ . . . #hotwatermusic #youdoyou #PMA #529adventures #parenthood #runwildmychild #childhoodunplugged #chasingthelight #bethechange #rolemodels #dadscomm #authenticity #dadlife #baddad #rewild #gower #agameoftones #iphoneography #swansea

💄NO MAKEUP💄 The last headshots I had taken for work, I decided to not wear any makeup. . On one hand ✋, it was terrifying. While I don’t wear makeup daily, I’ve never shown up for a professional photo and not had at least *some* makeup on my face. Like some eyebrows, mascara and blush (see, still not much!). I constantly struggle with the thought that I want to be “well-known”, but rarely ever see anyone in the spotlight who doesn’t wear make up. Alicia Keys is setting the stage! But she also didn’t start out going natural. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Women and makeup is kinda a thing in our society and it’s hard to be different sometimes. . On the other hand 🤚, it was liberating! I finally showed up as myself! I don’t wear makeup daily, I barely even put it on for date night! It’s not who I am, nor is it something that’s important to me. It felt GOOD to show up authentically and true to myself. . Sometimes the true, authentic version of ourselves is hard to show. It’s down right scary as shit! It doesn’t matter if it’s big or small, it’s still scary! But it’s worth it. It’s worth it to look back and be proud of yourself for showing up. #authenticity #nomakeup #smile #headshots #dosomethingscary #showup #playbig #beyou

What does it mean to have an  #INFLUENCE  on social media? To me, it means being able to influence others in a positive way. It doesn’t matter if you have 10 followers or 10,000 followers. Influence is influence. You have no idea how much impact you could have on others when you share your story, your journey and your vulnerability. ❤️ I have to be honest. I am just like you. It’s hard not to think about posting things and writing about things that are popular and in trend on social media space because everyone else is doing it. When I sat down at the end of last year to ask myself what do I want my content to reflect and what do I want to represent. I chose  #authenticity. I chose being  #real  and talking about the real struggles and the battles we, as women, fight daily. ❤️ Sometimes I think I am too vocal about my life and what I am going through. But it took me years to grow and find my own voice. Now that I have it, why should I care? Especially when I know someone out there might be battling through the same struggle. ❤️ What about you? What does it mean to you to be on social media? What are you using your platform for? . . . . . . . . . . . #darlingescape   #thatsdarling #canadianblogger   #torontocafe #cafetoronto   #torontocoffee #torontocoffeeshop   #flashesofdelight #minimalism   #theeverygirl   #theeverydaygirl #theeverygirlathome   #theeverygirltravels #lipstickandmuffin   #fashionblogger #whatiamwearing   #wiwt   #wiwtoday #liketoknowitunder100

Reconciliation is hard sometimes and humbling. However, it’s very essential to building and maintaining healthy community with others. Today’s blog is about an awkward moment turned misunderstanding. These things happen, but it’s all in how we handle them. Let’s just say it was a huge lesson in compassion. 😉 {link in bio}

🌿 As the colour of happiness and sunlight, yellow always brings a feeling of optimism and is the best colour to lift the spirits. A single piece in bright yellow is sometimes all a room needs. Different shades of yellow are able to evoke different feelings to suit various rooms throughout the home. For the livelier areas of the house such as the living room, bright yellow is a great way to spur energy. Similarly, in the kitchen, it can encourage the kind of creativity that will inspire you and help you to wake up happy in the morning. Softer hues can encourage peace and calm in the quieter areas of your home, such as the bedroom or home library. 🌿 #homedecor #decoration #beauty #simplicity #interiordesign #dowhatyoulove #creativity #imagination #growth #inspiration #styling #authenticity #joy #happiness #love #meditation #instagood #clarity #declutter #organise #space #clearmind #yoga #youcandoit #oneness #photography #travel #decor #gratitude

🌵One of the reasons we love nature so much is our inherent connection to the outdoors and to natural elements that are living or decor that was living such as wood, cotton, leather and seagrass to name a few. Choosing materials that resonate with your personal style is the first step for bringing them into your home. Bringing wood into your interiors is one of the easiest and warmest of natural materials and comes in a variety of finishes, species and applications. From flooring to ceiling beams wood also can be reclaimed and refinished from older buildings to keep its life sustainability ongoing for years in your home. 🌵 #decoration #beauty #furniture #simplicity #interiordesign #creativity #imagination #growth #inspiration #styling #authenticity #joy #happiness #love #meditation #instagood #clarity #design #organise #space #clearmind #homestyle #interior #oneness #photography #travel #decor #gratitude #art #interiors 🌵

twenty nineteen. i have no idea what you will be like. my word for this year, after much prayer && seeking, is quiet. if you know me, you know i hated this && fought god on it a bit. i do not like the quiet. but honestly, ive been struggling for a while. with a sense of home, a sense of rooting, lacking an intimacy with the father. in the quiet i will find my voice in the quiet i will find my home in the quiet i will find you, lord, && in the quiet i hope to find more of who you’ve made me to be. here is a song that came from some alone time in the quiet with him today. words i believe hes speaking over this year. he loves you, he sees you, you are his child. that goes for me too. sometimes i get so caught up in the noise the business && bustle, it’s easy to forget the simple but life changing truths. #poems #vulnerability #songwriting #blog #healing #authenticity #singing #worship #alone #hope #dontlosehope
