"Your spiritual tribe is out there. And once you find your tribe members, rejoice together. Support each other and stick together. Share your accomplishments, hopes, desires, and heartbreak. Praise each other and offer the kindest tough love when needed. There's strength in numbers. You're never alone." I discovered these words on my @crazysexykris intention card this morning. The words really resonated with me. This group of young ladies are all teen Moms who have found a tribe. They are doing great things and I am so proud of them and blessed to be a mentor. @teenmomshope

Today is the Autumn Equinox. It is a perfect day to pause, contemplate, and set an intention to recommit to what's truly important to you. .
For under the fresh start of September, there is an undercurrent of nostalgia; a complex intertwining of change and re-connection, good-bye and hello. And many spiritual lineages have long considered autumn as a time to turn inward: a time for reflection, contemplation, and self-transformation.
Transformation Often Begins With Setting Intentions. And many traditions offer practices and rituals to reflect on behavior and choices made over the year: to review any regrets, mistakes, or challenges. These practices are meant to be a learning opportunity, so unhelpful behaviors are not repeated and instead replaced with more artful, graceful, or caring actions in the future.
Intention setting is part of the process of creating new, more nourishing habits. Doing so helps to naturally diminish old habits that do not support us. This naturally re-wires us for change and evolution.
I love creating rituals, especially for the message it sends: Slow down. Pay attention. This is important.
. ✨🍂🍃🍂✨. For decades my ‘intention setting ritual toolkit’ has included incense (Nag Champa), essential oils (Sandalwood and Frankincense), sage.... and a tibetan singing bowl... so when I use any of these in my daily practice I am more quickly brought into a present and sacred place. Tell me...........What is in your toolkit ? . . ✨🍃🍂🍁🍂🍃✨. .Read more on creating your own Autumn Equinox ritual on my blog this week. Use it today or anytime throughout the season. .🌾#autumnequinox#ritual#intention#yoga#restorative101#reflection#DeepListening#CalmClearOpen#pause . #berkshires
Welcoming in the energy of fall today in meditation class @alignaustin with one of my favorite mudras!!!
Shunya Mudra | the gesture of emptiness and for cultivating openness to transformation.
Instructions: Bend the middle finger and hold down with the thumb. Rest the back of hands on the knees. Relax the shoulders down with the spine naturally aligned. Close your eyes and breathe.
This mudra opens us up to new possibilities, creating space between thoughts, and also releases tension from the shoulders, neck, throat, and head.
WHAT ARE YOU GRATEFUL FOR TODAY!? For me, it's:
My fully functioning female body 😬
Fresh air to breathe.
The divine spark that I feel inside my chest, and it's desire to find that same spark within others.
Your turn to Fill in the blank 🙃
Happy Friday ❤️☀️Autumn Equinox🍁
Day 7: "Taking my seat for meditation is a deliberate process. Steady in my connection to the earth (sits bones even), with a strong center (core), rooted in spirit (aware and engaged through the back of my torso), I offer my heart (shoulder integration) and align my will and my wisdom to the divine (ears over shoulders). The physical effort of coming into alignment is then transferred to the inner body, which brightens as the outer body softens. The balancing of my inner body and my outer body is arrived at effortlessly. The stillness of the seat I’ve taken vanishes into the stillness of the morning."
Thankful for all that have been practicing @namo_zen with me this week and those in distance always supporting. Also I can't wait to see you tonight at the Identity exhibition @artliving.room 🖼
Thank you 👁🙏🏼👁
Happy Friday! You are limitless! You are capable! You are powerful beyond measure! So often we listen to the chatty cathys in our head that say "I can't do that", "that's not for me", "I'm not good enough". Take this quote as your permission today to silence those voices and do something to astound yourself!
Day 18 of #fierce21challenge and I feel powerful! My intention today is to feel this strength and power all day; "I am limitless" is the mantra I'll carry with me! What about you?! What's your day looking like?!
Yowza check this out! So stoked to be sponsoring her (very first) upcoming challenge. Halloween themed, so I couldn't resist! @quinntortionist you're quite the Vixen in your Jade and Agarwood bracelet, so glad you love it!
You must set boundaries in your personal life and your professional life in order to be true to who you are and also to eliminate burn out. Stand firm on your boundaries you created them for a good reason. You are respecting yourself and the other person by knowing your limits. #boundaries#limits#intention#respect#personallife#professional
I love this week's cards..they are no nonsense, right to the point of how we can take back our power to live the life we desire!! Close your eyes, take a deep cleansing breath and recite, "God, Angels, wth love & light please guide me to what is in my highest & best good that I need to know right now". Pick the card or cards you are drawn too and take note of the order. This is how to prioritize the messages in your life. No second guessing!! This is a great way to start trusting your intuition! Card meaning is in the comments below! Have a great weekend guys! Xo L&L Jules
• A n a h a t a • the heart energy centre, the home from which we give and receive all love. Its colours are green and pink, and I love that the mantra that activates and opens this chakra is 'yam', pronounced 'yum'! How many times have you said that whilst eating something delicious? Maybe food really is the way to the heart 💞
"Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence" -Max Ehrmann. .
Sometimes when I'm feeling overwhelmed, I stop and read the Desiderata that I have on the wall in my apartment. This morning was one of those times. The end of summer has felt rushed, like I'm trying to hurry up and get ready for something, but I'm not sure exactly what that "something" is. This morning I felt like I needed to "unplug" myself and plug back in, like I do with my laptop when it stops working. Early yoga at @inhalepgh and a walk through the city was the perfect way to reset, and set an intention for the beginning of fall. Excited to see what the season will bring 🙏🏼🍂🎃
Fallen leaves and castañas (chestnuts) embodying tonight's fall equinox here in southern Spain. Guys, summer is officially over 😱 .. and holy hell what a summer it was if I may say so myself. As I begin to close out my chapter here atop the Andalucían Alpujarras (the place I've called home for most of summer working and living at an incredible retreat center as a holistic cook) I come full circle to acknowledging the undeniable truth in that the only way to get what you want is to ask for it. Write it down. Say it out loud. Tell your friend. Do whatever it is you have to do to get the message out to the universe that yes you want this and yes you believe in it. Fact of the matter is that we can't get what we want if the spirit and energy of the 'want' remains tightly coiled up inside. Our human design allows us to store these un-acknowledged 'wants' for long periods of time within our bodies, which in many cases manifests itself into dis-ease (been there 🙋🏻). Kindly avoid that by acquainting yourself with your deepest wants. Some of these wants will be worth paying attention to, and some won't be. Excavate and bring light to all dimensions of your deepest wants and desires, observe which feel in alignment to your own unique path, and accept the insight as to which of our 'wants' aren't worth pursuing and which are. It's in this practice that we have the opportunity to lighten our energetic load, permitting us to unlock what feels trapped, so that it too can complete its cycle and travel off to its rightful owner. When we allow this excess energy to evaporate from our conscious + subconscious being, we can invest more fully and be more present to what we do wish to manifest. Today marks our autumn equinox, giving us fall, a multi-colored season of shedding and harvesting. I invite you to be bold today and within the spirit of the equinox, intentionally ask for what you want to see in your world. When you ask, feel it in every bone, nerve, and organ. Let your 'wants' circulate throughout your entire being, keep this energy buoyant and pulsing. This is co-creation with source my friends. What a breathtaking existence this is 🙏🏽

One of my friends recently told me that I’m the “TMI Queen” ( before you ask, yes—you already know it was a man 🙄), so I’m just gonna sit this quote here because I like it.
NOT because I think it could potentially describe me to a T.
So just to be clear—I’m definitely NOT putting it here because I’m absolutely everything on this list...mmmkay???
This piece was made for a dear friend. She has been in my life for almost ten years and has become a part of my family. She is loyal, genuine and has a heart of gold. We sat down together and designed her mala.
Rose quartz for her heart.
Amethyst for her spiritual journey (and it matches her hair 😉)
Rhodochrosite for love & joy. 💖My heart is full 💖 .
My new label @ariathelabel
I fell inlove with a word. She came to me in quiet meditation.
In Italian : air
In Hebrew : lioness
In Parisian : noble
Teutonic : a little bird
In music aria is a self contained piece for one voice.
For me it means to give a voice, to be heard, to sing my heart song, and to understand that a collective song is to be sung, to be apart of the whole. As an orchestra has many beautiful instruments, played by beautiful people, finely tuned, creating a pleasing sound. To be apart of a larger work. Conscious.
Just how beautiful?

Aujourd’hui, on voudrait vous dire …
De ne pas oublier la légèreté 🦋
De vous élever. D'élever votre âme. D'élever vos pensées. D'élever vos sentiments. Votre énergie. Votre conscience.
De tenter de vous détacher de la lourdeur par quelque moyen que ce soit.
Vous vous sentez lourd(e) depuis un moment ?
Vous sentez un poids ? Dans votre cœur ? Dans votre corps ?
Un poids qui ne vous quitte plus depuis quelque temps ?
Décidez en cet instant, posez une intention, une seule, de voir ce poids disparaître.
Demandez. Demandez-vous, demandez à votre cœur ce qu'il faudrait pour que ce poids disparaisse, s'en aille, vous laisse tranquille.
Il suffit d'une intention. Posez-la.
Parfois on est empêtré dans un schéma, dans nos habitudes. Lorsque l'on a vécu, plus ou moins toute sa vie avec un sentiment de manque, de vide, de peur ou de tristesse, peu importe ce sentiment en question, il peut être difficile d'en sortir. On peut en tout cas avoir l'impression que l'on n'en sortira jamais. C'est faux. Tout se passe dans notre tête. Il y a un moment où tout sera possible, où tout est possible. Nous ne décidons pas de tout. Mais si vous sentez que ce moment-là est arrivé pour vous … go ! Posez votre intention. « J'ai l'intention de rendre manifeste et d'attirer à moi une abondance infinie.
J'ai l'intention de remplacer mes pensées et mes sentiments de manque, de peur, de tristesse, d'angoisse, par des pensées et des sentiments d'abondance, d'espoir, de joie, d'enthousiasme … d'amour. »
Répétez à votre cerveau cette intention, comme un mantra. Reprogrammez vos cellules. Remplacez toutes vos pensées négatives par ces nouveaux mantras, pendant vingt, trente jours. A chaque fois qu'un sentiment de manque, de peur, d'angoisse, de tristesse s'immisce en vous … Bam ! Mantra !
Et retrouvez un sentiment intérieur de paix, de sérénité et l'envie et le courage de déplacer des montagnes, tranquillement et calmement, mais sûrement, chaque jour, pas à pas, pour atteindre vos objectifs et vos rêves.
Focalisez-vous avec foi, envie et détermination sur ce que vous désirez profondément et ces désirs se réaliseront … il ne peut en être autrement :) Larguez les amarres ! C'est parti ! 🕊
When @torontodoula asked for protection bracelets for her children, my heart melted. Sweet C. is going to be sporting this delicate rose quartz and pink aventurine number, which will provide her with a continuous mountain of love. For Superhero H, I chose Tigers eye as the main focus, with turquoise and larvakite for strength and courage as he navigates his own path in pre-school.
Such a special to introduce intention and the power of positive thinking to children. .
Blessings Tribe. It's such an honor to show up in this lifetime in this way. We have heard that only LOVE is real. It is true. We have the capacity to tap into this vibration of love. From this place and vibration, we have the power to heal ourselves, each other, this beautiful planet. It's our super power ...And it's more accessible than you may think. There are so many practice that connect you to this vibration. There are so many ways to live consciously. To support conscious business. To raise awareness on environmental issues. To be love and human in all situations. It's time to remember why we are here. This is a pivotal point in the history of this beautiful planet. It's time to do your part. Tap into the stillness at your heart center. Send it out to all beings that need it. Show others the way. Choose LOVE💗. Mannabliss, your source. ✨🙏🏼✨
