Our logo encapsulates who we are. Our congregations’ logos are beautiful and intentional variations of our main Missio Dei Chicago logo. In the center of the Uptown logo is a cross made of the streets in Uptown. Another element of our logo that represents our church model (one church with many congregations) is that the neighborhoods are at the center of our logo. The incarnational presence of His church in the neighborhood is strengthened as the whole of Missio Dei Chicago wraps around and supports this work. #unity #Jesus #Chicago #church #bettertogether #Uptown #generosity #serve #humility #love #honor #renewal #freedom #onechurch #reconciliation #healing #presence

Today I celebrate turning 33yrs old as I stand here in the Mountains of Colorado. - Here are the top 5 things I’ve learned/realized this past year: - 1. Meditation comes before anything else in my life. After 11 months in a row of meditating without missing a day, I realize meditation is the foundation for which everything in my life is built upon. In the most stressful of times I am still able to find peace in knowing that meditation is always there for me. Through meditation I I have become more of who I truly am. 2. Ongoing Education is the 2nd most important thing in my life next to meditation. Reading (or listening to books) and going to courses are my 2 favorite methods of learning new things. I can measure my success in my personal and professional life by the knowledge I’ve learned in these courses that I applied to my life. All the really successful people I know around the World are also reading and taking courses/going on retreats. 3. Alcohol is a poison that I realize has lowered my consciousness and prevented me from giving my best to myself and giving my best to others. I’ve not been drunk in 10 months or had more than 2 glasses of red wine. I was able to shift my perspective on getting drunk by simply asking myself over and over again : “How is this serving me?” I don’t see drinking alcohol or getting drunk as something I can’t do or something I’ve restricted myself from but rather I see it as a choice; I choose not get drunk as it no longer serves me in any productive way. The reward for this is I’ve felt much healthier, calm, productive and saved a lot of money. 4. I used to struggle with thinking “I wasn’t enough” or that “I didn’t have enough life experience” and I realized how much these thoughts were limiting beliefs. I’ve shifted my perspective to fully embracing that I am loved and I have a lot to offer the World. I’m now fulfilling my higher purpose of helping others through my business 5. I create the World I want with the language I use. When I speak what I want to create into existence then I make that possibility real for myself and I also enroll others in them having that possibility for themselves. - Onwards and upwards

16/11 Gili Air - Had my 2nd dive into another part of the ocean. Descended pretty well this time. Swam around a sunken wreck, with the help of my instructor of course, and was mesmerised by the life under the sea! After my 1st dive, I was processing much of my connection with the deep deep ocean. Shall share more in my next eNewsletter, I think. Let me learn how to swim and I shall be back! ❤ . . . #love #life #gratitude #motherearth #rebirth #miracles #alchemy #light #nothingness #presence #myworld #dawnofgaia #iamhome #iamfree #be #lifeis #stillness #collectiveawareness #selfawareness #giliair #diving

Gotta a minute? Let me share with you a breathing technique to de-stress your life. ☮️ Dirga pranayama or three-part breath is one of the most calming, grounding breathing exercises you can do. . 1. Begin by observing the natural inhalation and exhalation of your breath without changing anything. If you find yourself distracted by the activity in your mind, try not to engage in the thoughts. Just notice them and then let them go, bringing your attention back to the inhales and the exhales. . 2. Then begin to inhale and exhale deeply through the nose. . 3. On each inhale, fill the belly up with your breath. Expand the belly with air like a balloon. . 4. On the next inhale, fill the belly up with air as described above. Then when the belly is full, draw in a little more breath and let that air expand into the rib cage causing the ribs to widen apart. . 5. On the next inhale, fill the belly and rib cage up with air as described above. Then sip in just a little more air and let it fill the upper chest, all the way up to the collarbone. . 6. Repeat engaging all 3 parts of your lungs smoothly. . . Learn more at www.alchemyofyoga.com . . . . . . .

One of my favorite ways to get present is to go outside and either start naming colors or objects I see or noticing what sounds I hear. I then begin taking 8 purposeful inhales and exhales to let go of what’s on my mind and get out of my head. This helps me to calm my nervous system and relax. Not to mention appreciating this sweet Earth. I’m always in awe of the beauty that surrounds me when I practice getting present. It is a practice that takes dedication just like anything else you want to get better at doing. No matter where you live try to step outside and appreciate nature and maybe try some of those strategies to get out of your head too. You can never love the Earth too much just like you can never be too present. Happy weekend 💚

Take a moment to just feel acceptance for right where you are at. Acceptance for what is. Acceptance for what you feel. Allowing yourself to be in this moment in time. Wherever you are. Whatever you may be doing. What does acceptance look like in the body? Acceptance looks like flow. Allowing yourself to move with the stream. To go with the current. Feeling peace in the now moment. Loving yourself for exactly where you are at. A stillness that permeates from the inside out. We remind you that acceptance is not about giving up- but rather moving with the flow. Not waiting to find peace- but rather finding peace in the now. Know that place of connection, that flow of energy is always inside you. And you have the ability to access it at any moment in time. Keep moving forward beautiful creator beings! ~in light and love~ #acceptance #selflove #selfacceptance #gowiththeflow #flow #spiritualjourney #truth #messagesfromspirit #channeledmessages #spiritflow #allow #presence #inharmonywithspirit

Cultivating presence is about learning to direct your awareness to one thing at a time so that you can fully experience all that each moment has to offer. In this moment I was simply focusing my awareness on George. Allowing his presence to awaken mine. Soaking up the wonder, joy and excitement he was creating for himself throwing rocks in a dam. #mindfulness #presence #awareness #stillness #joy #nature #movingmeditation #mindfulmoments #mindfulmama #mindfulnessformums #mindfulnessmentor

⠀ From that time I landed on planet Portugal... ⠀ ————————⠀ ⠀ I’ve always thought that some of our greatest internal achievements have been inspired by some of the harshest, unforgiving and painful human experiences.⠀ ⠀ Humans; like nature, have the capacity to use these intense conditions and experiences to grow, deepen and evolve. ⠀ Just when the landscape seems so harsh, barren and unforgiving, there it is - the tree growing wildly through a crack in a volcanic mountain. ⠀ A seeming impossibility yet there it is, adapting, shape-shifting then thriving in its environment. ⠀ ⠀ That I believe is the spark of the human spirit. ⠀ ⠀ To meld our pain, sadness and inner tragedies into something powerful, shareable and wise. ⠀ ⠀ Each wrong turn a threshold to recalibrate and come up for air. ⠀ ⠀ Each missed opportunity a chance to rewrite the inner narrative of what we thought was possible. ⠀ ⠀ Each new day at our feet is our one chance in time, to breathe into the moments we are gifted - to grow.⠀ ⠀ Xo⠀ ⠀ ——————————⠀ #soulwork #beherenow #writingmylife #heartwork #myheart #risesisterrise #soft #strong #hopeful #keepgoing #wendymartinyoga #breathe #theartofbeing #gentlesoul #calmmind #presence #naturalmystic #healing #atlanticocean #oceanside #soulscripts

I was pondering the other day about feeling. About our capacity the capacity we have to feel, but choose to shield instead. When feeling would be so much more freeing. There are times I catch myself l, holding it all in. It's a habit I must undo, because I know when I open, like this flower above everything just flows through and out and there, ladies, is the healing. . . I was also thinking about feeling sadness without anger. Ouch. Let me say that again. Being able to feel sadness without the anger. The anger seem to be what is creating resistance.Sometimes I wonder if we use anger as some type of guardian. But what it is protecting? Our vulnerability? . . Vulnerability needs no protection. . . My Master Feminine Teacher Sri Namaste Moore was giving teaching once and gave the example of a flower in regards to vulnerability. It is open and free and needs no defense. It is just being the beautiful creation that it is regardless of what could happen. It's just being. . . Know that your emotions (any of them) are meant to be felt and let go. They only remain if you choose to keep them. Choose wisely. 🙏 . . #emotions #flower #vulnerability . . Photo by Tavin Dotson

“Maybe there's a whole other universe where a square moon rises in the sky, and the stars laugh in cold voices, and some of the triangles have four sides, and some have five, and some have five raised to the fifth power of sides. In this universe there might grow roses which sing. Everything leads to everything.” ~Stephen King 💜 Drawing inspiration today from this most perfect rose, even though by now she is dried and sitting on my shelf.

Take up space & feel yoself...🙌🐢🔥 . I was totally feelin this topic today. When one of my students in my Quiet Voice Big Impact branding course Q&A Call this morning mentioned how taking up space was an important topic for introverts, I knew that synchronicity was divine confirmation for me to share this inspired topic. . As introverts, we feel others energy deeply. So, it’s understandable how we’d want to stay in our shell to avoid being overstimulated and possibly even criticized. But I’ve realized that you end up giving your power away because you’re seeking external validation. You’re reacting out of fear instead of responding with toward toward yourself. . When you give yourself permission to take up space and show up fully, you take your power back. You validate yourself - for you. . Style has been my sacred practice to help me take up space and fully express my power and presence from the inside out. . 👉 Catch the whole video in my private FB group. Just hop onto Facebook and search “Quiet Voice Big Impact Community” and request to join. . If you’re a fellow introvert ready to take up space, own your presence and make your impact with your biz, I invite you to a complimentary Discovery Call to map out your inspired strategy for the new year. PM or email me at info @dawningsoul.com to schedule your call. Limited spots available. 💫

You may think getting everything you want exactly how you want it makes you a great “manifestor” but that’s some bull crap. The universe isn’t so boring that all it would give a powerful and whole spirit like yourself all one color and flavor all the time. The conscious mind is shallow it cannot conceive of choosing pain, adversity and struggle but the subconscious mind does not divide one world from the other. It sees how all things are in their wholeness represented in stark opposites! My baby was born a few weeks ago on Nov 1st and several things didn’t go the way my conscious mind would have chosen... 1. I spent the first week after leaving the hospital violently ill and 2. My baby has a small problem with her foot that requires her to get casting for a few months... The powerful “manifestor” would want to share with you all the good things of which the list is likely too long for Instagram but the real me wants to share about acceptance and how when we are with what is, we are with the divine. I chose these things, the week of illness, the small struggle with her foot. Her and I chose this together. My duty is only to remember the agreements I made. There is a supreme order and aligned result that dominos with all sub consciousness choices we make. That supreme order is one of geometric and sonic perfection. It’s the place where songs are born, where words go to become poems, where ideas go to become insights. When we remember and accept. Anyone else feel this to be true? Anyone else care to re think and accept what’s hard to accept? Please share here, we love the shares!

Well, it happened. She showed up. It was so smooth sailing I didn't think she would, but these last few days I've been feeling .... yucky. Unsettled. My thoughts are harder to control and today I asked myself the same question I do at the start of every meditation and the answer was clear. I feel anxious. I want these next two weeks to hurry the fuck up so I can start living the next chapter of my life, but at the same time I'm petrified. I'm equal parts happy and sad, excited and frightened. I've never not had a job. Even through all the many side hustles, I've always been employed, held a 'job' and soon I'll be self-employed and nothing else 🙈😨 Fear has crept in. Old Lori is screaming 'woman, are you insane, start applying within Westpac while you still can!!! Boy oh Boy oh Boy, we have ourselves in quite a pickle here. Why are you so calm, we got to hustle GF🤦' But I keep reminding her, 'it's cool, we got this. I know it will be ok, more than fine, in fact brilliant things are coming our way and this step is necessary.' In the words of Jules from Pulp Fiction "Bitch! Be cool!" But she's trying to protect me, get me revved up and prepared for this next chapter. What she hasn't quite figured out yet, is this next step is growth of a different kind. This growth will be calm, spiritual and from the outside, while the world buzzes around us, this growth will look still. Finally, we can relax, we can breath, we can stop because it will be sitting the quiet and the stillness, that our biggest growth will occur. #patience #growth #time #stillness #beprepared #meditate #iamayogagirl #breathe #calm #shakeitoff #anxiety #stress #selfemployed #mumpreneur #fulltime #smallbusiness #fear #givefearthefinger #yogateacher #YTT #2019 #staycool #staypresent #presence #nearlythere #taketime #stoprushing #timestandingstill

It's very hard to let go of the belief that if things in the world were different, then we'd be happy. Perhaps something related to money, reputation, family members, friends, health, boss, colleagues, politics, weather, etc. . As Neale Donald Walsch powerfully puts it, what is needed isn't changing our circumstances, but rather changing our mind. . A Course in Miracles similarly states: "The world you see will change entirely as you elect to change your mind." . Let's practice returning to our mind and making another choice that results in a completely different experience. One in which true happiness abounds. . -Anthony Gold .

“When the one whom I have benefited with great hope, hurts me very badly, may I behold him as my supreme guru..” although written via the middle man of Howard C. Cutler, introducing us to HH Dalai Lama, the essence of the teaching is still incredibly profound in this book, and this short segment suggests a whole new way of viewing challenges in life, the eager practitioner longs for life to throw a curve ball, what better way to see how far you’ve come on your spiritual path. So when the universe gives you challenges smile and relish in the fact that at last your practice can become action, after all a spiritual practice is just that, practice... for the spiritual life you are seeking. Step out of seeking and in to being. #dalailama #howardccutler #theartofhappiness #meditation #zen #book #bookstagram #bookoftheweek #presence #mindfulness #yoga #thepowerofnow #happiness #art #love

⚡️Essential Oils & The Emotions⚡️ . • I believe there is no separation between the body, mind and spirit. So if you are in a journey of wellness, looking at your emotional health is a must. • ⚡️How Do They Work 🤓⚡️ . . .Out of all our senses, smell is the only one that connects the outer world 🌍 directly to our brain 🧠. As you inhale, the oil molecules travel up your nasal cavity where they are introduced to the olfactory bulb 🧐. Here they cross the blood brain barrier to your limbic brain (reactive) which is the seat of our emotions. • The oil brings new and nourishing information to the brain which help dissolve stress and connect you to nature 🌲. Helping us to be more responsive and less reactive. • Have you ever used essential oils to help with your emotions?

We must empty ourselves out and let the Lord fill us, because what fills you if it is not God within you? Revelation 3:5 says "He who overcomes will thus be clothed in white garments..." but how can they remain white if we roll around in the mud? Having attachments to the things of this world will get dirt on you and drag you back down. When we are spirit filled, we become much lighter. Let your attention rest on God always and you will overcome. #presence #christian #perspective #choice #faith #truth #love #god #prayer #sacred #inspiration #wisdom #gospel #jesus #christ #lord #blessed #grace #spirit #holy #bible #scripture #salvation #heaven #godisgood #repent #holyspirit #worship

Our body is much more than what we usually think... it carries all of our traumas, emotions, feelings and beliefs... it also says a lot about ourselves, not only our personality but how open we are to life and our experience in this moment! In saying that, because we tend to resist SO much to what’s happening within us, we contract.. we get tense as a way to resist to experience, to protect ourselves... Ou body then starts carrying all the resistance and tension we once took to be ‘psychological’.. it then becomes psychosomatic! So when our body is tense and contracted, it’s a sign that we need to ‘losen up’ around our experience in this moment.. we can do this by becoming more aware of ourselves and our patterns through mindfulness AND we can also work at a physical level, by relaxing, stretching out and improving our posture. This table exercise is an example of stretch you can do as a way to open yourself to this moment. This is working on shoulder mobility and flexibility, a place that is usually tight when we are afraid of opening our hearts and resisting to life. It’s also a great hip opener which is where we carry a lot of our daily stresses and trauma history. BE IN TOUCH with your body! It has a LOT to tell you. It knows much more than our intelectual minds 🌸🤸🏻‍♀️ #mindfulness #psychosomatic

As his hand wraps so perfectly around mine, I pause to notice this comfort that has become such a normal part of my life. We have lived together almost our entire relationship, seamlessly weaving our lives together, simultaneously chasing dreams and building a lifestyle we love. Sometimes I find myself taking it for granted. What were the odds he would walk into that bar and respond with kindness to my sass? What were the chances we would be soulmates, loving this journey as we challenge one another to be the best version of themselves?

Forgiveness comes before gratefulness. • It's difficult to be grateful if we are stuck in the past. • Forgiveness releases us from the past so we can be grateful for what is in front of us in the present. • Gratitude is a crucial practice. • But, if we are only using this practice we will alway be consciously or subconsciously pulled into the past full of resentment, regret, shame and guilt. • 📸: @dylansido

A week into the devasting fires of CA, the past couple of days I have been feeling foggy and fatigue, sleep restless, and a body stagnate. Sadness and grief for humans, wildlife, and an environment affected by fires. Worried mind and tired heart, staring out into the gray sky and landscape; throat sore and scratchy, a dull ache in the head, I start to wonder if I am protected in my own home. Stuck indoors, thoughts of fear enclose and darken the unknown of tomorrow and the reality of change. A restless body and mind and the direct effect on mood. A desire to breath fresh air, feel the sun on my face, play in nature, move my body, and liberate the mind. I have also experienced profound moments of appreciation and gratitude, pockets of excitement, joy, and laughter. In my latest post, I touch on the complexity of emotion and importance for compassion vs. judgment, as if we must accept and grade the significance of emotion. I continue to learn in moments of isolation. It is not black and white, we do not have to feel sad and doom all day to affirm our empathy for those who have lost their homes and loved ones. Recently I purchased tickets to see Fleetwood Mac (my favorite band!); I was thrilled, dancing around the house with joy and excitement. Moments after I started to feel guilty; here I am buying concert tickets as another lost their home. At that moment, I limited my celebration, my experience. Truth is I can be excited while holding empathy in my heart. I can feel content after a yoga class. I can touch gratitude when I embrace my cat, thankful for his health, mine and those dear, and for the safety and protection of our home. This is a moment in time, it will pass, and we will all breath fresh air again. That I know and trust. This is why I practice, for moments of uncertainty, to create a stable foundation and predominant energy of ease in my system. Connect with stillness, retreat and rest, celebrate and cry. This is life. Allow yourself permission to experience the complexity of it all. #yoga #awareness #presence #practice #trust #heart #clarity #contentment #compassion #anchor #experience #moment #breath #meditation #celebrate #loveforcalifornia

للتسامح إن كنت تواجه صعوبه في الإعتذار فمن المفيد جداً أن تسأل نفسك: . -ماهي الأمور التي تؤديها بدون رغبة خلال اليوم؟ -ماذا لو كان من الممكن الإستغناء عن هذا الأمر أو تفويضه أو التقليص من تكراره؟ . -ماهي أكثر المشاعر التي تقاومها خلال اليوم؟ -ماذا لو كنت معها ألطف ولم تقاومها و سمحت لها بالظهور وناقشتها وتدرجت في رفعها أو ذهبت لمختص؟ . -من هم الأشخاص الذين تقاوم ظهورهم في حياتك؟الناقدين كثيري اللوم؟ ماذا لو علمت أن لوجودهم رساله عليك إستلامها بكل وعي وحب وإمتنان ثم السماح لذاتك ولهم بإختيار رسائل أُخرى من آخرين؟ . . #coaching #coachinglife #selfawareness #lifepurpose #reflection #reality #balance #reflectbeauty #asinsideisoutside #passion #selfsupport #empowerment #personaldevelopment #selfawareness #conciousness #emotions #beliefs #vibes #goodvibes #productivity #happiness #joy #learnfrommistakes #onlinecoaching #karma #presence #كوتشنج #تطويرذات #توازن_الحياة #توازن #جده

W O R S H I P - Day 16 - #30daysofPresence REVELATION: For I know Your power and presence shines on all Your lovers. Your glory always hovers over all who bow low before You. - Psalm 85:9 ✨ MEDITATION: Worship is man’s response to God’s worthiness. When we lavish worship and even just whisper the name of Jesus, He’s present and willing to comfort, strengthen and empower us with HIS limitless life, teeming with divine wisdom, compassion and grace. ✨ Everything we need in this temporal life is found in HIM and in HIS presence. What you worship and focus on become BIGGER. As we worship Him, He becomes bigger than the circumstances, the depression, the relational conflict, the Dr.’s diagnosis or financial crisis. ✨ Choose to meditate and keep your heart on Jesus and that He loves you more than you could ever fathom! Make HIM bigger than the problems you keep rehearsing in your mind over and over and watch Him invade your life with His supernatural power and breakthroughs. ✨ APPLICATION: • What moves you to worship Jesus? A quiet place as you sit before Him? Nature? Dance? Painting? He loves all the expressions that cause you to engage with Him. • Journal two scriptures that stir your heart to deeper worship
