My desire to be a makeup artist started for me at a very young age. I remember playing with all my cousins and putting together fake pageants. I would line them all up and do their hair and makeup. It was so fun for me not so sure if it was for them-sorry! Little did I know this would be something I would continue to enjoy and love. I started reading all the fashion magazines—absorbing the tricks of the trade and the do's and don'ts of wearing makeup day-to-day. Later, I would realize that bringing out the best in people by emphasizing their natural beauty was not only rewarding for me, but has a powerful effect on how people feel about themselves. To expand my knowledge further, I decided to study skin care at The Capri Institute of Technology. This gave me more information in understanding skin care and health, which is vitally important as a makeup artist. I love being able to help my clients truly look and feel their best. I’ve had women share with me moments of darkness, shed tears in my chair, tell me how pretty they felt, start taking a bunch of selfies, giggle in excitement, all because they found comfort with me and confidence within themselves. Do you know how rewarding that is? I couldn’t think of a more rewarding example. I want to uplift, empower and validate women through the beauty of makeup. Younique has allowed that opportunity for me to become a reality. My passion for makeup goes way beyond a product. It is about the relationships and connections with real people, with real struggles, with real self doubt, with real anxieties and just making them feel GOOD for a moment. THAT is the reward. We all have a story, being transparent and authentic can be quite vulnerable but I promise you the world isn’t as dark as it’s made out to be. I’m blessed to say I’m surrounded by some incredibly beautiful humans. This journey is NOTHING I ever imagined it to be, it’s so much more. It’s late nights of masks, team meetings, note taking and HUSTLING like a boss babe while making an impact! 👊🏼💜• • #makeupartist #mua #journey #younique #empower #uplift #validate #beauty #compassion #real #authenticity #bravery #fighter

I harvested my lavender today within the full moon energies as I was afraid the storm coming in might ruin many of the delicate petals.

Self-love. It’s the one thing that maybe aggravates me the most in the realm of ‘trends’ today. Sure, it’s a great idea. We all could use a little more self-approval, self-confidence, and an internal knowing we are worthy, simply because we exist. I can get down with that. Yet.... How on earth, in the age of photoshop, plastic body parts equating to worth and beauty, cutting pieces of us away, instagram influencers and insta models, comparison, stretch marks and cellulite being demonized, and the entire sense of female worth being based on an ideology of smallness.... How are women supposed to practice self-love? How is that realistic? I’ve posted this before, but I’ll post it again because it’s THAT.IMPORTANT. Start with neutrality. Neutrality is accessible when love may not be. This picture of me - I don’t love it. There’s a million little things, of which I’m probably the only one who notices, that I could pick apart. But.... I also don’t hate this picture. I’m just.... neutral. 5 years ago, or even one year ago, you wouldn’t have seen me posting something like this. You have to start somewhere. Work from self-deprecating to just being neutral. And then work from being neutral to maybe just liking some parts of you. And then go from liking those parts, to trying to love them. And remember - self-love is never ‘all or nothing.’ It is always a work in progress, for all of us. And woman, there is nothing wrong with that.

I’ve been working very hard to become more real and authentic. To share the experiences that have allowed me to grow and transform into the best version of myself. And I finally feel ready to be raw when it comes to sharing my spirituality. 🌷 . I’ve grown so much these past 2 years, especially this past few weeks - everything has changed! And I want to share what I know, because we go through these spiritual initiations in order to gain wisdom and pass it on. That’s part of the mission. 🔥 . I hope you know how unconditionally loved you are by the universe. And that it ALWAYS gets better. The rainbow is there, but your first have to get through the storm ⛈ 🌱🌻🌈 . . . #raw #authenticity #thoughts #spirituality #selflove #spiritualawakening #love #rise #inspiration #motivation #awakening #higherconsciousness #life #happiness #shine #woman #divinefeminine #energyhealer #lightworker #starseed

Real Talk for a Moment. Tell me if this sounds familiar...? Working 12-14 hour days. Early meetings. Working even at home. On my feet all day. I just DON'T have enough time. This was me 9 months ago. This was me 6 months ago. This was me 3 months ago. Life got hard, one hard thing after another just piled up on top of one another until I lost sight of me. I used to make time for me, everyday. I used to make my health a priority. My stress was blinding. I lost an entire season of time and memories. My food intolerances were out of control. My chronic pain was numbing. My chronic inflammation was endless. I was overwhelmed with loss and grief. Most importantly, my mind was not my own and I no longer recognized my thoughts. It was there, in that realization that I was giving myself to everything but myself. I lost my commitment to myself. I was so focused on everything else working, I stopped being present. I decided I couldn’t keep going like I was. I needed to make myself a priority and recommit. So I started with 42 days for ME. Then 7 more days for ME, Then another 21 days for ME. Everyday I chose me. I chose my health. I chose my mental well being. Now? I'm choosing to make myself a priority once more. Now, I’m committing to 100 days to focus on ME. Will you make the same commitment with me? #mindbodyandsoul #healingfromtheinsideout #onestepatatime

Holy moly. Today marks 2 years to the day that we spoke our truth, took bold and courageous action and launched Purpose Pioneers into the world. 🚀 I remember looking at Thomas in the car (probs driving to Chipotle 🤣) and saying.... “Can you imagine who we’ll BE in 2 years from now?” Welp...here we are. We have become the people we want to be. Purpose Pioneers. 🌱 Those who align every thought, decision and action with their purpose. 🌱 Those who cultivate self awareness to create meaningful change, free from fear. 🌱 Those who embrace the unknown with a courageous and curious spirit. 🌱 Those who seek to understand and then speak from the heart. 🌱 Those who believe they have everything they need to thrive independently. And truly, it’s only just begun. I cannot wait to see who I’ll become in another 2 years from now. Because of choosing this path (or did the path choose me? 🤯), I’ve gained such a deep understanding of what it means to love, live and lead on purpose. In my eyes, purpose-driven business puts transformation at the core... ...it’s a beautiful exchange 💏 ...it’s mutual “I love you” ❤️ ...it’s a physical manifestation of the depths of our beautiful souls 🔮 Standing unshakably in these truths has led me down a road less traveled, but one that is more magical than I can ever put into words (and y’all know I’m pretty damn good at that 😝). I now get to walk shoulder to shoulder with fellow purpose-driven coaches and entrepreneurs in the arena. ⭐️ The ones that are on frontlines of transformation. ⭐️ The ones that are raising the consciousness of humanity. ⭐️ The ones that are risking it all to make the world, and what’s in it, better. Man, what an honor it truly is. Life really is as beautiful as you choose to make it. 🌈 Much Love. Much Purpose. ❤️ ...and to the Purposphere we go 🚀🚀🚀

This road isn't easy. I have breakdowns once in a while over all the support & love I pushed away. A marriage, being partially responsible for my baby's painful death, because of the constant struggle of money. No family to lean on during hard times, both financially & emotionally. Frustrated & not seeing fast enough progress, feeling like I'm getting no where. Buuuuut, the release of those tears & enormous heartache is always worth it. I always come out feeling more empowered. I don't settle for mediocrity & not all can support that. We're all human, having motivation & spreading empowerment isn't a straight line. You're going to have moments of doubt, self loathing, shame, frustration & even a bit of temporary bitterness. Forget what some platforms mask, you're going to feel all of that & should allow yourself to! The key is & the true positivity is, not to stay too long in those places. Allow the feelings, welcome them, thank them, cry them out, write & shake it out. Honor the loss & let it go. Your journey isn't like others & that's ok. Your tribe will come. Always find understanding & come back to the light. You'll wakeup more empowered then before, when you allow yourself this natural process. Don't suppress it, it only slows you down & bites you harder. You don't need to risk your sanity, to "hustle" hard as they say. The body will only reject it & you'll burn out. It may even make you give up. If a part time job is what you need to make your goals happen, over a full time hustle role, then do it. To have space for adequate self care, your own business goals & just breathabilty is so valuable. Make it work! So much more actually happens. It's what I'm learning in my multi passionate journey & it's what I teach. Yes I'm an adrenalin lover, extremely ambitious & intellectually articulate, buuuut I know my body & my spirit. I don't want to abuse it in the process. My heart wants all of these things, but wants me to do them at the right pace & in the right way. Knowing your limits is a powerful thing, it doesn't mean reducing progress. It's setting yourself up for actual productivity & more love. I believe in me & I believe in you. - Sapphire Hope.

Dear Womenfolk, When it comes to friendships, communication, bonding, empathy, vulnerability, and just general emotional intelligence, I think it’s safe to say that (for the most part) we are ahead of our menfolk—something that I think (hope) most of them will agree with. However, one of the challenges that we all—both men and women—struggle with is authenticity. As a species we have always been competitive and perhaps even hypercritical of one another, but in the modern context with capitalism/consumerism and the many benefits and luxuries it affords us like increased wealth, status, elitism, etc., coupled with social media and its impact on how we socialize, we all very much live in fishbowls—giant, beautifully adorned, crystal (not glass) fishbowls. So naturally, many of us have become more concerned with being “liked” and admired by others than with revealing our true selves and being as authentic and honest as possible. With regards to female friendships, I've lost count of how many times I’ve heard from men how perplexed they are by the way women interact with each other. For example, they don't understand why we squeal in excitement every time we meet even if we’ve only been apart for a few days (or even hours--haha). Or why the first words out of our mouths usually have to do with how “fabulous” or “gorgeous” we think our friends look, even when they're wearing sweatpants and just coming out of the gym--haha. What really seems to grind their gears is how we interact with each other on social media. I remember one male friend said he believed women online were "mostly fake" with other women and that was because of the excessive amount of flattery, some that they felt was undeniably insincere and overtop. So ladies, what do you think? Is there merit to this? Despite all of the positive advantages we may have over our male counterparts when it comes to our relationship and communication skills, have we become the more inauthentic and shallow gender? A good way to measure just how authentic we are is to consider the following questions and deliberate seriously on what they reveal: (Continued in comments below 👇🏻) #authenticity #women #friends

Success - what does it look like? Flashback to 6 years ago. I'd broken through as a presenter in the fitness industry, had my first child (only 4 months old here), was a Lululemon ambassador (hence the photo in the background), BUT didn't earn a huge amount of money. Financially a failure, but in life it felt wonderful. It's important to define success in your own terms, whatever those around you may think. Be you! #nextlevel #befreebeyou #success #authenticity #inspiration #connection #dadlife #lululemon

A Poet & A Gentleman™️ Some people fear #solitude. Others embrace it. The most dangerous thing in the world is a person who willingly welcomes it with an open mind, heart and soul ... and intentionally recalibrates the world around them like a chess piece ... and answers to no one, except to that teacher that is silence. #RebelSoul #apoetandagentleman

That Which is Essential You will never not exist, in the same way that Nature will never not exist. Nature takes different forms in expression, but She is always more than its forms. You will experience seasons coming and going, and your form will be forever evolving, yet you will always remain as you. One of the truly magnificent gifts is that our souls are anointed with the impulse and ability to access the Formless. Or, put another way, when we open to it, the Formless in us accesses Herself through and as us. When this dawns in your conscious awareness and affections, every motivation, activity, and relationship in your life adopts divine choreography as its primary focus. Content becomes secondary and the guiding presence of Grace, essential. #spiritualawakening #deeplistening #unlearning #authenticity #followyourheart #vulnerability #listeningtograce #livingonpurpose

Book recs by Britt - July edition! 👌🏼⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "Hey hey! Big Magic ✨ by Elizabeth Gilbert ( @elizabeth_gilbert_writer ) is my rec of the month because as we approach the half-way point of summer, we inch closer to the change of a new season. With change, sometimes comes fear. Fear is the universal emotion that restricts us from living out our dreams and cultivating the life we desire. Elizabeth says “Your fear will always be triggered by your creativity, because creativity asks you to enter into the realms of uncertain outcome, and fear hates uncertain outcome.” Let this be your reminder today that no uncertain outcome can stop you. Big love, Brittany"

I have a confession. I have been playing and expressing myself/Soul Grit at 40% of our capacity. 🌻 I've been playing in the "safe" zone. Worried about what others think about my posts, about my mission. I've been consumed with the judgements and opinions of others convincing myself that I am just listening to my audience. 🙈 In truth, I've been hiding. But I am done with that. I am Lisa Marie and I am Soul Grit. Just as I support and encourage you all to be expressive, I am now going ALL in. My daily life, my readings, my health and fitness, you name it, I am talking about it. 🔥 I encourage you all to do the same. We are in a time where we can inspire and help others to have hope and to encourage them to take action by simply posting and being vulnerable. You never know who's watching. 👊 #allin #soulgrit #spiritualgangster #authentic 💯 #authenticity #selfaware #showupforyourself #empoweredwomen #earthangels #empoweringothers #speakup #purposedrivenlife #lifechoices #lioness #swaggersouls #swagger #goldcoast #currumbin @spiritualgangster #selfdevelopment #tarot #intuitivelifecoach #intuitive #perspective #isagenix #healthconscious #healthylifestyles #stepintoyourpower #thisisme #grit #gritty

🌟HOPE - NEW LIFE - REBIRTH - RELEASE - HOPE 🌟 ok, so I’m more of a dancer than visual artist 😉👩🏽‍🎨💃🏽but I always like to bring in visual art as a way of concluding dance Movement therapy sessions as a way of providing form to whatever our inner material has been for the session.. During full moon periods I find I release a lot of outdated patterns, belief systems and connections that no longer serve me in my present and moving forward... I try to accept the wisdom with grace, but purge and let go of the egotistical connections to them which hinder my growth and ability to be present.... Which hinder my sense of hope 🧡 We can believe in hope from our minds perspective, but what are the memories and patterns in our bodies feeding us that might be holdingf us back? Like flowers and trees, I believe that us humans also go through a cycle of release, letting go and a state of absolute raw nakedness and vulnerability as each petal (layer) falls away organically in order to allow life to occur once more... we deconstruct, fall apart... 🧡 then, like nature, we find the sun and the sun finds us... 🧡hope, empowerment, confidence - in the life around us.. appreciating ourselves and what we’ve been through to get us to this point and the life force that we are - flourishing once more... our new layers may not look like the previous, and perhaps they’re not meant to... but we try to accept ourselves with love and grace and we feel our own sense of hope and empowerment... as within, so without...🧡 Life is not a destination, we are constantly unfolding, releasing and flowing 🧡re emerging and discovering wonderful new facets of ourselveslves🧡 because there’s always hope, we just need to allow ourselves to see it and feel it, without the restrictions, hurts and let downs of the past... we ARE hope then 🧡 we embody it and carry it with us everywhere we go as a gift to ourselves and each other 🧡release what holds us back, be and feel the hope that you deserve 🧡 #hope #authenticity #beyourself #release #presence #lettinggo #fullmoon #creativearts #vulnerability #naturesmetaphors #newlife #blossoming #lifesjourney #appreciation #selflove #unfolding #flow

Evolution, Progression, “Glowing up” comes in many forms. Mine has come through realizing myself through spirituality, sobriety, and celibacy. I used to live for the weekend, not remembering what happened, and wait all week for the next wild adventures. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve had some of the best times in my life with the best people during this period and I’m grateful I got to experience it...but at the end of the day I LIVED for it because that’s all I really had going for me and nothing really of value or purpose happening outside of that. The lifestyle had led me down a road of depression and dependency of substances and stimulation. On top of that I had an addiction to masterbation and pornography which contributed to the depression and dependency of stimulation. This was all reflected in my state of being...I was insecure, had low energy and drive due to lack of testosterone, poor diet, and feeling lost. My inner world was a war zone, decadent wasteland, in a constant state of conflict. In the winter of 2016 I had my first signs of an Awakening right after a falling out with a girl I was involved with that lived in another state... who just had a baby and was still with her boyfriend 🤦‍♂️ #neveragain lol I kept seeing repeating number patterns everywhere and I kept hearing this inner voice telling me big changes are coming. And sure enough that happened Fast forward to the fall of 2017 and I move from California to Kansas City. Not really having a plan but was willing to experience something new. The area in general had a spiritual and magic feel to it and still does. Since moving I have gone through so many internal shifts, ego deaths, spiritual awakenings or whatever floats your boat to the point where to the vibration I’m resonating at/person I am now barely recognizes the younger beta version of me. The younger version of me would laugh if I told him his future would include being a vegan, sober, spiritual nut, celibate who retains his semen & yogi. And He would see his future self as feminine and weak. But I forgive and love that version of myself because he was wounded & needed healing. Healing from God/Source *cont in comments*

You don’t have to be masculine to be powerful.✨ You can be sweet, yet firm. Calm, yet confident. Polite, yet strong. Recently I’ve had the opportunity to coach some badass #businessowners who thought they would have to change their style to be better at sales. Quite the opposite, using what came to them naturally + strategy and skill development was the key. ✨How do you embody power? 🤗 And... you may have noticed a new title in my bio, Business Coach. A term I resisted for a long time because I used to turn up my nose at the term “Coach.” 😑 But naming what I actually do has been so empowering for me - because what I provide for business owners is SO MUCH more than consulting. I’m also excited to share that I’m accepting applications again for my #businesscoaching program.👏🏼 www.MelissaBarker.com has the deets 😘 (link in bio as well) . . . . . . . #businesscoach #authenticity #womenempowerment #powerfulwomen #personalgrowth #womeninbusiness #businessowner #entreprenuer #businesscoachforwomen #realtalk #ownyourvalue #portland #marketer #marketingdigital #strategist #empowerment #truth #pdxmarketing #strongwomen #thisisjoy #portrait #entrepreneurlife

Transformations are not always physical! Some may think I have gone backwards on my journey since gaining some weight, however in my eyes I feel like I’m moving forward. There are still days I get down on myself, but more and more I am learning to love the stage of life I am in. I am laughing more. I am learning to accept myself. I am starting to appreciate transformations other than looks. I am being more authentically me. Can we all agree there’s nothing better than being authentically YOU? #onehealthchoice #beyou #authenticity #acceptyourself #community

Anxiety, depression, insecurity, self-doubt, etc, are all innately human characteristics. When we put up a front that we have it all together, we isolate ourselves in our struggles, making them even bigger, and louder in our minds. And when we do this, we also rob ourselves of connecting with others in deep meaningful ways, preventing us from getting the support we need & deserve, and realizing we are not alone. - Shoutout to @ladygaga for de-stigmatizing vulnerability and calling us up to a healthier and more connected level of humanity. - Help us create a new normal by leading the way with openness, compassion, and love. - #authenticity #truthbomb #areyoubeingreal #peoplebeingreal #givingconfessions #sharedtruths

Just a little reminder taking care of yourself should be a top priority in life, you should do something for yourself everyday no matter how small some ideas: make some tea or coffee, watch an episode of something that makes you happy, take an extra 5 minutes to relax in the shower, read a good book, go for a walk or a drive, listen to music that you love… the possibilities are endless #selfcare #selflove #happy #happiness #authenticity #positivequotes #positive #positivity

Conversation in Stockholm, Sweden || “Finish my sentence”, I say... •Love is…finding a very special person and putting their wants and desires before your own •Life is...what you make of it •Modern medicine must…become available to every person •The person I most want to be proud of me is…my dog •I want my legacy to be…that when they throw dirt at me from six feet I can look my maker in the eye and say I gave more than I took •The worst pain I have ever felt is…a broken heart •I feel hopeless when…my niece is asking me difficult questions and recording it (giggle) •I feel fearless when…I never feel fearless •I feel guilty about…what mankind is doing to the one and only planet we can survive on •The person I miss most is…my little sister •Being in love feels like…what I’d imagine a good jolt of heroin would feel like •My greatest heartbreak was...my father disrespecting the commitment he made to his wife and family •There’s hope in the future when I think about…the potential of women and young people to correct the problems created by the great white men lusting after money and power •Life is worth living because…we are so fortunate to be given life in the first place #human #humanity #authenticity #beauty

You never know what hides behind a smile. Ash hit a point in her life at 26yo where she suffered from anxiety and panic attacks as a symptom of PTSD. This challenge in her life was a catalyst for her stepping into sacred service. After experiencing a shift from coaching with me, Ash qualified as a CONSCIOUSNESS COACH™️ at the Academy of Soul and now guides others towards developing a stronger, more loving connection with themselves. She specialises in guiding people to bring light into their lives by helping them connect with their higher self. Ash blends her unique personal and professional experience to support women to establish an unbreakable connection to themselves. The Soul Project’s philosophy is based on prioritising your connection to your true self (our soul), and allowing everything else to be supported by this inner connection. Once you have a deeper connection to your intuition, which is your soul’s inner guidance system, then you will experience a sense of calmness and confidence that empowers you to create a life that is in pure alignment and fulfills you on a much deeper level. Ash will help you update your perceptions and rewire your subconscious mind and develop a deeper connection with yourself. Ash is passionate about guiding others on a holistic level to take control of their limiting beliefs and self-doubt. Ash's clients experience a deeper sense of self-worth and confidence from their coaching sessions, which impact their relationships with themselves and with others. You can connect with the inspiring Ash @the_soul_project_ Or visit www.thesoulproject.com.au 🙏🏼 Eryka

Your body is your soul’s sacred companion. Every woman's body is divine. Every man's body is divine. To honour the Divine in your body and another's body is a radical revolution.🌟 You cannot transcend your body, but you can journey through it to the stars. Each atom is filled with the sky. Angels arrive and depart in your EVERY CELL. ✨The sacred practices of every wisdom tradition are techniques of Incarnation. They do not negate, but honour our human body.. Tribal shamans draw the Spirit from plants, animals, stones. Grace flows, not down from heaven, but up through the soles of the Qi master's feet. The whirl of a Sufi is body-meditation. Buddha's breath is lower than your belly button, in the Hara. The Tree of Life is your spine, growing in the paradise of your nerve garden. Chakras blossom here, on this tree, not in other worlds.🌟🌟🌟All you need to bring to this body is Awareness. LOVE.Reverence.Honour. The journey beyond is a journey within. The journey up is a journey down, pilgrimage to the sacred mud between your toes. Your weight is a prayer. Gravity is grace⚡️⚡️⚡️You are a lightning bolt connecting earth and sky. You can be the bridge between Heaven and Earth. Your body is a temple where the Sacred Spirit resides. "Therefore glorify God in your body" (1 Cor. 6:20). We must prepare that temple by keeping it clean of toxic words, thoughts and deeds. Laugh, cry, dance, and meditate. 🙌🏽The eye is holy. The nose is holy. Lips and tongue are holy. Holy all the parts. Holy the boobs, belly and buttocks. Holy each wrinkle of your skin.✨✨ please treat yourself with kindness 🍂 Eryka Stanton Founder Academy of Soul www.academyofsoul.com.au 📸 @aliciakeys
