When we first begin stepping into our creative gifts- a new venture, a new passion, a new calling... perhaps we haven't fully built the skills to meet the knowing of our spirit. This is where many people get discouraged on their path. This is where we are most vulnerable to the criticism of others. This is the stage where many people give up due to watching their humanness not yet catch up to the wholeness of the spirit. Whether it's learning a new instrument, beginning to express in a new way, etc. I am here to bring you this message- keep going. Keep honing that craft. The world needs your gifts. There will come a day where you are blown away at your own progress, witnessing how far you've come as you drop into the sorcerer/ess you always have been. The journey is much easier when we are gentle with ourselves in the process of becoming who we truly ARE. As we strip away the layers that don't serve us and step into our knowing and mastery, embracing the process of becoming and unbecoming and becoming and unbecoming. Be patient with yourself. I'm here to gently encourage and nudge you in the direction you're being called towards. Keep going. Not everyone will understand it but I am here to remind you that now is the time that we need you most. Thank you 🏼#gifts#purpose#calling#now#weneedyou#stepin#power#sorcerer#mastery#inspiration#motivation#believeinyourself
What if our "flaws" were our greatest gifts just waiting to be tamed, groomed, refined, mastered? What if this is the method of polarity the universe uses to help us recognize these gifts? For example- I have seen my "people pleaser" as a flaw. My ability to be a chameleon and lose myself in others. But when harnessed, I can see this as one of my greatest gifts. It is a quality that allows me to understand and connect with many types of people. To meet people where they are at. To help others feel comfortable so they can open up. Etc. Brian has seen his intensity as one of his flaws. But when harnessed, this intensity can be transmuted into a rare gift of inspiring passion and leadership. I have a friend who sees that she "talks too much/has no filter" as a flaw. When harnessed, she is an imaginative and interesting orator. She has the gift of expressing valuable ideas with charisma and isn't afraid to speak the truth. She can give the voiceless a voice. Another person may see their "shyness/introversion" as a flaw. But perhaps their ability to be a wonderful listener and space holder is their greatest gift. The possibilities are endless. Do you have "character defects" that are yet to be seen as valuable and powerful soul assets? It's all about harnessing these qualities and learning how to use them in a way that serves the greatest good of all. We are not flawed beings in any way. We all have unique characteristics that many of us have not been taught to embrace. It pained me to perceive these parts of myself as being flawed, because now I see they are deeply valuable qualities that are unique and deserving of my harnessing. 🏼🦋#perfect#human#characteristics#valuable#gifts#divine#harness#acceptance#spirituality#consciousness#perspective#perception#higherpower
"Your messages aren't for everyone, love. It's best to not drain the nectarous juice out of the truth that wants to flow through you, only in an attempt to please the desensitized palate of the masses. If you do, it will end up being too bland for the ones who are truly meant to savor and benefit from your soul shares and recognize it."

I used to expend much energy and time playing my sacred music only for it to fall upon deafened ears. I didn't realize it was partially because of my own inner self worth issues. I had become accustomed to setting myself up for disappointment and putting myself in situations that did not serve me to stay in my low self esteem patterns. I felt like I could be the one to "save" them. I tried for years. I had to be the one to do it. 'I loved the challenge', I told myself. Or, did I love the struggle? These expectations I put on myself were very typical of my own self sabotaging patterns- however pure my sweet souls intentions were. I literally almost died. The nectar of my song had become diluted. I came to the painful realization that it is not my job to open a closed shell. Opening closed minds is an art that is saved for divine intervention and timing. I can stand in my light and when those souls are ready, I'll be here with open arms and an undiluted song. Perhaps.. they don't need to be saved- they're simply not ready yet. I now accept others for where they are. I honor all processes. As we release these tendencies which are based upon childhood familiarities and rise into our unbridled greatness, we attract what we deserve. We attract hearts who are open and available. We attract ears who love to savor the sound of our music. We find our tribe. Your people are here, thirsting for your song. Their souls salivating at the mere thought of a single strum from your heart's strings. If we spend too much of our energy over "there", we leave the field. We drain our life force and neglect those who are open and ready, here and now. Pray for those who have not yet opened their eyes. Sing for those who are open and "your entire Soul Family will echo Yes A thousandfold." 🦋
Why Self Love? Why Self Acceptance? Why spend so much time in these areas of personal development? Why so selfish? Shouldn't we be focusing on those around us? No necessary changes can happen in the world if we only focus on ourselves, right ? Valid questions... Yes, there is validity. But in order to invoke change, we must start from within and work our way out- rather the other way around. Here's why-
Our relationship with our Self determines everything about our relationships with others. For example I love hanging around people who embrace and accept themselves in all their perfect imperfections. It makes me feel safe to be my perfectly imperfect self around them. When I am around people who judge themselves harshly, I often feel judgmental energy coming towards me. In reality, it can't be any other way- there is no separation. (Understanding this can also help foster compassion when others treat us harshly. It is a reflection of their relationship with themselves, and that must be a difficult space to live in.) So, when you fully accept who you are, it makes me feel safe around you, because I know that you accept me too. And it also encourages me to accept myself fully. When I accept myself fully, that energy radiates outward and you feel acceptance when you are around me. This is where peace begins. It's a beautiful cycle. This is the importance of the "self work" we do (because there truly is no "other"). It ripples to those around us in ways we can't fathom. Releasing judgment of ourselves to release it of others. Accepting ourselves to accept others. It's really quite simple when we remember that the only variable is ourselves. It all begins from within. Once we improve that relationship, every relationship around us changes. 🏼🦋#inward#journey#selflove#selfacceptance#healing#nonjudgment#oneness#peace#consciousness#spirituality#relationships
You know that feeling when you have no idea how much you have going on inside til' you let it out to someone? How I can describe what I've been feeling lately is sort of.. floating. But not in the light, fairy like, mystical way. More like the floating along in a life raft not really totally tuned into myself because there's merky waters and I've been checking out a lot because it's scary. The kind of floating that leads you to say you're "fine", when you feel anything but. I've been scrolling through social media. Hermitting. Distracting. Not really feeling much. Yesterday I finally caught up with my soul sis for 3 hours. When she asked me how I'm doing/for the update on my life and I completely drew a blank. That type of floating. I couldn't even think about what's going on in my life. So I just began by talking about something random, and then eventually everything I've been feeling and experiencing flowed (many tears) through me and actually caught ME by surprise. Have I really been going through all of that? Wow. Yes I have. I didn't even fully realize that every aspect of my life is in complete transition right now and I am currently going through some of the most challenging experiences I've had to date. Between my vocal injury, having no income because of that, my lease being up in 2 weeks and still not having a place to live, and many other personal things, I JUST fully realized I am clearly in a phase of complete upheaval and unknown, and I have a feeling that many others are feeling the same. I felt so much lighter after expressing my soul to her. And I reminded myself to be easy on myself. To come back home. To stay with myself when I begin to check out. To not miss the lessons. Because in reality, it's always unknown. That's the magic of life. I encourage you to express how you feel to someone if you haven't in awhile. It brings much clarity. And, if you are in-between like me, you are truly in the realm of infinite possibilities. And that's a very freeing place to be, no matter how scary it may seem. So this is my reminder for both of us - that everything IS unfolding perfectly, in divine timing, and we are exactly where we are meant to be. 🦋

There is a challenging hike that I enjoy doing near my home in Maui. It is straight up a mountain and it definitely gets the blood pumping. In the past, it's taken me a lot of self motivation to get to the top. I'd grit my teeth and sweat through all my pours, until finally I made it. A few days ago, I decided to go for this hike after not working out for awhile, anticipating a challenge. During the hike this time, my mind wandered quite a bit. I was enjoying the scenery, receiving creative visions, fantasizing, smiling, totally lost in my own mystical world. And then all of the sudden, I was at the top! Woah! I was amazed! It felt as though I had floated to the top. Then I realized, this is perfect symbolism for how I love to manifest things now versus in the past. I USED to be all about the grind. I may have manifested my desires but a lot of blood sweat and tears were involved. NOW, I have learned about ALLOWANCE and the art of EASE. Letting go of the grit in my mind and allowing the energy to flow. Still arriving; but this time enjoying the journey along the way- dancing with manifestation. Arriving with inspiration in my heart rather than fatigue in my bones. We don't need to earn anything through enduring pain to deserve our deepest desires! We can let go, and allow Source to take over.
I am a Master Manifestor, proven time and time again.
In my reality, it's not a matter of "if", but a matter of when!
I've defied logic and made the magic my friend.
Playing around in manifestation is the most fun time to spend.
I used to think it was all about persistence
Now I understand that the key is to release all resistance
And there is nothing too far of a distance
That can't be attracted through my creative vision
There is no time or space- it's all within reach
Things manifest more quickly when I allow ease
Asking for the greatest good ensures that outcomes beyond my wildest dreams come to me.
All I must do is allow the flow after I plant the seed.
Nature shows us how to do it all the time.
There's nothing new here, just a remembrance of our innate kind.
My only "job" is to stay aligned
Letting in the God-mind; the One, the Divine🦋
I was listening to my friend's podcast yesterday and he dropped a WISDOM BOMB! He said: When a trigger arises, specifically within a relationship, our first reaction is generally to lash out, hide, blame, etc. He suggested that there is a way that we can INSTANTLY transmute triggers for healing when they arise (as each one is a golden opportunity) - by becoming ultra present with our BODIES in that moment. So first - comes the awareness that a trigger has been ignited. Then, pause - and feel into your body. Where is this trigger felt? Ex: tightening in throat. Become a compassionate observer and feel/breathe through this area, asking it what it needs. So; This morning I was given a golden opportunity- a trigger! Time to put this into action and see if it works! Brian and I were working on a project and he got frustrated and yelled. I immediately felt as though I had done something wrong (pattern). Instead of falling into my drama, I paused. I excused myself because I wanted to implement this exercise and needed silence to focus. (In the future I may do this with him, but I wanted to get it down with myself first.) I went into my room and felt an extreme constriction in my throat and a deep sadness in my heart. I sat there with my hands on my throat and chest and repeated that I was here for myself. I felt into the pain. Instant tears flowed as I held space for myself. Images flashed through my mind from childhood where I felt this way- from sister lashing out at me, to father reprimanding me. I held myself. I reassured my inner child it was okay and they were wounded children as well. They didn't know better and we're doing their best. Forgiveness came. Clarity and wisdom flowed through me, in the form of, "You've done nothing wrong. Brian is tired and what he said was not personal. You are both doing your best. You are perfect." Then, it lifted. This process took 2 minutes. I came out of the room a new person, with the patience of a saint as we continued the project. We talked about it and quickly came to understanding because of the peace I emanated. This is what can happen when we are present with our bodies and become a loving allies with ourselves🏼
Honest reflections regarding my vocal injury
There is a well of sadness inside of me that feels deeper than any ocean
My voice has been broken, and now at every corner something triggers my emotion
I crave to sing again like the breeze and feel no pain
Every time I hear resemblance from a singer on the radio I go insane
Lost at bay with so much- or nothing - to say
Doctors telling me that this injury is serious and here to stay.
I've been told this before, and defied their fear-based idea of fate
My inner healer knows wellbeing is my natural state
So I do have good days, where I remind myself that there's wisdom here for me
But then I somehow find myself trudging back in the depths of the dark sea
My voice was not only my peace and serenity, but my financial vocation
I am ready to come back from this unplanned extended vacation
God, grant me the serenity- to calm this inner turmoil
Offer me a new perspective with fertile soil
In which I may plant seeds for miraculous healing
Tuning into the reality of that feeling.
I will water the seeds and with your grace
A new sense of vitality and alignment may be embraced
I remind myself now, to trust in your timing and your plan
Nothing goes unnurtured in God's hands
Bringing myself home. Again. And again.
Remembering to be easy, to be my own friend.
My story is still being written, and I trust that this will be an uplifting read in the end. 🏼 #healing#trust#voice#bringitback#lessons
Is there a truth- a message- that resides deep inside of you? That pulls at your heart- sometimes gently- sometimes incessantly- and to express it scares the shit out of you? If so- this message is for you... So, WHY does it scare you? Because it's the CORE of who you ARE and if you share it, you are exposing the most tender, raw part of yourself to the public. It is the epitome of vulnerability- being fully naked. Because 'It's easier to share half truths, because if they get ridiculed, at least it's not my whole soul that's getting torn apart.' But there's something deeper still calling you. Maybe you haven't even allowed yourself to fully look at it. Because you're afraid of its raw, untamed power. It's like a wild animal that has been caged away. If you give it energy it may take a hold of you and make itself known. So you pretend it isn't there. If there is something in there that scares the shit out of you- that's tugging at you in the silent hours of the night- then it MUST be shared. If there's a calling, there is an answer. There is a soul who needs to hear it. And that soul, that deserving person- first and foremost, is You. We didn't come here to die with our music inside of us. And the music will keep tugging on your heart strings in one way or another until set free. It's your birthright. It's my birthright. Please be brave with me. Know that you can call upon your higher power for courage. Ultimately, it hurts us way more to share half-truths that keep us "safe", it's an insidious kind of pain. It's the pain of bondage. The pain of being jailed in invisible cages with keys we've pretended weren't in-between our fingertips all along. They have been there though. You have the keys. Set yourself free. Spread your wings now. You are supported. Because the pain of truth unspoken outweighs any perceived ridicule or consequence. Because you can't put a price on the taste of freedom. Because the world needs you now. Because you deserve to hear your song and so do we. Because your song inspires mine. Thank you. 🏼🦋#setitfree#truth#bondage#express#courage#healing#freedom
Hurricanes. Wildfires. Floods. All of these natural disasters are here to teach us something- but we mustn't miss the lesson. There is no separation in this universe. The upheaval we are experiencing in the outer world is a mirror. We can tune in and meditate and connect with these energies- asking the storm, "What do you want us to know? What do you need? What are you trying to teach us?" We mustn't miss the messages. What do natural disasters do? They bring humanity together. They tear everything up from beneath the surface and force us to reground ourselves. They're wake up calls. Messengers. Much like doing inner work, there is major upheaval. And upheaval leads to awakening. This is happening on a mass scale. We must open our EYE and tune in now. What is this here to teach us? How can we meet it with consciousness? Now is not the time to let the important messages slip through our hands. What do you think these natural disasters are here to teach us? 🏼#hurricanes#floods#fires#symbolism#awakening#upheaval#dontmissthelesson#wakeup
Return to senderI recently read that 98% of the thoughts/feelings/emotions, and 50%-90% of the pain experienced in the body of an empathic person may not be their own. If you feel a sudden overwhelm of a feeling, simple ask it "Is this mine? Where did it come from? Who does this belong to?" And if it lightens up, it's not yours. Simple return to sender. ~ ~ ~ 🦋
On a similar note . . . .
Lately I've been noticing how I FEEL when I am around certain people. I've been quieting the voice that tells me how I "should" feel around this or that person, and am paying attention to how I ACTUALLY feel in my core. (Like the time when I was told that a certain person was a spiritual guru but all I felt from them was a repelling, narcissistic energy. I initially overrode my own intuition and found out the hard way that I was right. I trust myself now). What I've learned is that it's becoming very clear what connections serve my soul and what don't. After certain interactions I feel insecure, drained, confused. After others I feel uplifted, empowered, energized, light, at ease, etc. It is clear which one is a soul-serving connection. As we begin to honor ourselves more and more each day, we choose connections that serve our soul out of self respect. The people pleaser in me used to have a tough time with this one, because I still see everyone's light. Even when I don't feel the best being around their energy. So I felt guilty letting them go. Now, I give myself permission to release those relationships in which don't serve me with love- not guilt, and attract new ones which fill me up. This helps me be my best self for those who truly deserve my time and energy. We've been given the gift of discernment. Now more than ever is an optimal time to use it 🏼🦋 #energy#returntosender#empath#discernment#lettinggo#soulserving#connection
For the past month I've been telling Brian how badly I've wanted to play with puppies. So much so that I'd begin crying at the thought of it. I took him to the animal shelter so we could play with them but we both knew we weren't ready to have a full time dog with our schedules. Two days ago a woman I met through the Reiki community here posted on FB that she last minute needed someone to watch her puppy for two weeks. I responded immediately and an hour later she dropped the puppy off. It turns out she lives on my street! Of all the places on the island. My street! Who knew! As I laid on my floor with this new bundle of love, I laughed at the realization that two hours before, I couldn't have predicted that I'd be laying here with a pup. Brian came back from an hour surf session to the surprise. His reaction was priceless. It all happened SO fast and seemingly out of the blue.. but I had been putting this out there and letting it go. This whole situation is very affirming for many reasons- the main reminder being that the universe can deliver to us anything and everything we desire in ways we could never predict with an outcome beyond our wildest imagination, in a very short period of time. So today I am grateful for puppy love , and the universe reminding me that I am a master manifestor and to keep on launching rockets of desire, because there is no desire too large or far away. It could be right down the street! 🏼 #manifestation#loa#puppies#instant

Two years ago I didn't know I could sing at all and never could've imagined I'd be doing it for a living on Maui. One year ago I never imagined myself playing guitar. It seemed like too big a mountain to climb. Luckily, the universe likes to surprise me every single day of my life. And I happen to be in love with my #1 encourager and fan. Last night I performed my first acoustic gig. It was very challenging, yet very rewarding. Thank you universe. Thank you Brian. For opening vortexes within me that I didn't know existed. I'm open to more! 🏼🦋#myguitarteacherishandsome#thankyouuniverse#musica#brazil#girlfromipanema#healing#acousticmusic#taylormini#acousticguitar@brianmassa_
I absolutely love the movie Moana, and how the scary demon Te Kā is simply the beautiful goddess Te Fiti that has forgotten who she is. My shadow work is like this. My shadows are simply aspects of my inner child that I haven't acknowledged, understood, or accepted yet. They seem scary when I haven't gone there, but if I can recognize them as Moana recognized Te Kā as Te Fiti, they're not as scary as they may seem. This goes for all the darkness we see in the world. Just as Te Ka forgot she was light until Moana recognized it, many have also forgotten. This is why people do hurtful things. There is nothing in this universe that is not connected to Source. We can practice this with everyone we come across. As we recognize the light in others, rather than their darkness- we witness them transform before our eyes. Now more than ever the world needs us to integrate all of these fragments of ourselves that have gotten cast away- and come home to our wholeness. This is the greatest gift we can give ourselves and others. 🏼🦋 #teka#tefiti#moana#wholeness#shadows
The universe is constantly trying to support us and deliver messages to us, but if we stay locked in our homes with the door closed, we may not get the messages. We must put ourselves out there. Go outside. Go to the farmers market. Go to the gathering. The messages are begging to access us through any portal but we must first open the door. I've been locking myself in my apartment for the past few weeks as I've been healing. Looking for signs. Not gettin much. Yesterday I noticed I had an invite to a friends potluck gathering where there would be live music. A part of me resisted going. How can I put myself in a situation with live music and not get sad that I can't sing? I pleaded with myself. I wanted to keep hermitting. But, another force within me said, Go. Go go go!! So, I mustered up my energy and put some glitter on my face. I dropped Brian at our gig (He's been performing without me for two weeks now as I heal my voice) and headed over to the gathering. The ENTIRE night was full of too many synchronistic explosions to count. The universe spoke to me through every single person there. But most importantly, through the part I feared the most- the music. I noticed my impulse to feel sad when they turned it into a rotating musician situation and asked who wants to share. But instead, I comforted myself and said, "It's okay Meryl, tonight is for enjoying. Tonight is for listening." I had a deeply spiritual experience listening to the music last night. It was actually a magnificent joy to listen with my whole open heart with nowhere to get to, nowhere to perform. And then it hit me- I was still just as much a part of the music, without playing or singing a single note. An open vessel for the musician to penetrate. I was healed. After the gathering, I was able to catch the last 20 minutes of Brian's performance, in which I usually sing with him. I walked in and he had two guitars out (which he never usually does). We've never performed guitar together outside of our living room. But it felt right. I sat in the chair next to him and he handed me his Taylor. For the last 20 minutes we made music together. Every single person who walked past was elated by our
Shadow work. There's those who are deathly afraid of going there and will avoid it at all costs through any means necessary (alcohol, food, sex, television, and whatever else keeps the inner demons far away). Feeling only "good feelings" is the aim, or feeling nothing- because that's better than feeling pain. Then, there's those who have embraced the shadows to such an extent that they live there now. They may even become a shadow work specialist and have become obsessed with the pain-body and exploring the unchartered territory of inner darkness. Pain is their only indicator that Joy and Peace are near. I've been both of these people. Now, I am learning to strike the fine balance of embracing the shadow work, but not requiring myself to stay there in order to feel worthy of the joy and peace that may or may not ensue. I give myself permission to frolick around in the fields of pleasure or pain as often as I would like. There is no right of entry for experiencing bliss. There is no agenda for experiencing pain. I hold space for myself when the shadow beckons, but I do not attach to the darkness as being my only portal to the light. I embrace the unfolding process in which there is no means to an end and embrace the pain and joy and everything in between without one making me worthy of the other. I allow my life experience to be all that it is without controlling any variables. I. am. 🏼#shadowwork#worthy#light#dark#pain#love#healing#joy#bliss#spirituality
A couple weeks ago (right after our vocal injuries manifested), Brian and I took a short trip to the mainland for my sisters wedding. When we got back to Maui, there were dozens of these tiny COCOONS all over our apartment! We thought it was kind of strange and cool and we let them do their thing. Now, they are all hatching (if that's the term), and these cute little tiny moths are coming out and flying all over our apartment as they find their way to our the open windows and out to freedom, the next phase of their journey. Then it hit me... I only realized just now the profound, beautiful symbolism of these cocoons scattered around my apartment. Metamorphosis. That's best how I can describe the phase I am in. As my voice is healing, I've been retreating inward. Almost like a hibernation. The universe forced me to slow down. And now I can see I am TRULY in the midst of a powerful metamorphosis. The little inchwormys don't resist crawling in their cocoon because they're attached to their inchwormy way of life. They're not fighting against the cocoon, protesting, "How long is this going to take? Why must I be here? Can't I just be a butterfly right now without having to wait in that thing?" nope. They crawl on in and trust the cocoons process no matter how long it takes because they know they'll eventually transform into a beautiful butterfly. Oh, and they don't have to try that hard. Mother Nature is working her magic for that surrendered lil cocooned inchworm. 🦋I trust in the universal plan and give myself and my body permission to rest, bowing in reverence to its wisdom and divine timing (contrary to how my busy mind would like to perceive it). I can keep bringing myself back- remembering the cocoons and that the universe wants to remind me that I am safe, supported, and exactly where I am meant to be for my highest growth. Life is cyclical. I honor the cycles and remind myself that I can surrender. There is no need to try so hard. I allow myself to nestle up in the cocoon of the divine bosom as I heal and gain the strength and wisdom to spread my wings once again and soar towards my destiny 🏼🦋#metamorphosis#cocoon#healing#inward#journey#cycles
The Disempowering Guru Complex I've noticed that when lets say, "PERSON A", offers unsolicited insight into "PERSON B's" life situation by Psychoanalyzing PERSON B, or bringing up PERSON B's past as ammo and painting a picture of their "story" etc., it says much more about PERSON A's unresolved story than "PERSON B" aka the perceived "wounded bird" in A's eyes, which is now where they are being held energetically from this stance of spiritual hierarchy. A true teacher/healer recognizes the innate wholeness in the subject- seeing them as healed already; rather than by pinpointing their brokenness, seeing what can be fixed, and holding them in that space energetically. This recognition of wholeness in the subject from the teacher creates a space of energetic empowerment. I know part of my life's work may involve facilitating "healing" in others, but I am so hesitant towards doing this work because of my sensitivity to this dynamic and never wanting to disempower a client in any way in them coming to me for their healing. I have been naively disempowered by past mentors who perhaps weren't full of integrity- or perhaps weren't fully integrated within themselves and allowed their ego to take part in the work, stripping me of my innate knowing and power as I was looking for answers while putting these teachers on pedestals. This was partially my "fault" for perpetuating this dynamic due to my naivety, but I would never want to do this for someone else. I can only reflect on this now because I have also experienced times where I've innocently offered insight into another's life rather than allowing them to come to their own conclusions- where upon later reflection I realized my insights may have been based upon my own projections. Even if not, where is it my place to provide insight for another sovereign, all-Knowing Being who has temporarily lost sight of their own inner compass? I would never want to hold someone in that space. I watched a documentary that triggered me deeply where the spiritual teacher assumed in a diplomatic tone that the student was struggling with "daddy issues". This may or may not have been true, but I am no longer attracted to this

"Remember where you came from." A saying I've heard many times. A saying that is truly profound because it helps us remember our roots when we feel lost. Where did I really come from? Well, Parsippany, New Jersey to start.... but beyond that- I came from an egg and a sperm right? That's pretty damn miraculous in itself. But, what about before that? Well, moving backwards, there's some molecules, and then some cells (just a few trillion), then atoms, electrons, subatomic particles, sub-subatomic particles, and then- we'd discover beyond that what Einstein and other scientists discovered- that there is no particle at the source. The Source is pure, unbounded energy vibrating so fast it defies measurement and observation. It's invisible, without form or boundaries. So at our source, we are this infinite, omnipotent, formless, vibrating spiritual energy. Well, that clears things up for me. That's where I came from. And that's where you came from. All the magnificence of nature on this planet and in this universe. We ALL came from the same place. Yup, we are all family. (So that clears up all this confusion about race and shiz, cuz we are one, and that is undeniable fact- but a conversation for another day.) This source is within you and me- always has been and always will be. Boundless. Expansive. We can tap into this field of potentiality at any moment and set forth any intention we desire, because infinite possibilities are accessible right here and now. It is scientific fact. When I remember my Source, there is no impossible feat in my life. This isn't new information, this is a reminder of what you know. When we forget, we feel alone, hopeless, de-energized. And then, we remember again. I remember that my source is yours and yours is mine. And I feel more connected to everything and everyone and infinity is my nature. So, all in all- remember where ya came from, will ya! 🏼 (In thick Jersey accent, because that's where I came from too). 🏼🦋#remember#infinite#potential#source#expansive#roots
I was speaking with a friend who was having some doubts about her life path and was thinking about going to see her psychic for some insight. I asked her "What would you most want for the psychic to tell you? .. Imagine the psychic saying to you an answer that would make you LIGHT UP with truth. As in, if she said x, y, or z, it would resonate deeply. What are those things? Whatever things come to mind, that's your life path." As I said this I watched it click in my friends head immediately. I literally watched her light up. She knew. She always has. Even through the (very normal, very understandable) self doubt. So if you're having doubts and trouble trusting yourself, imagine an angel, or a psychic, or some insightful being that reflects your truth back to you telling you what your life path is. Whatever gets you most excited and a tiny bit scared to imagine hearing from them is a great indicator for you :) 🏼🦋 #whatgetsyoustoked#beyourownpsychic#deepdownyouknowyourtruth#anditcantbedeniedanylonger#theworldneedsyou#gogetit#lifepurpose
Here's a clip for your enjoyment of me singing my own made up language and dancing accordingly Sometimes people message me asking me how I “Raise My Vibration”.. and this varies much of the time. Sometimes it involves laughter, sometimes it involves tears. Sometimes it involves alone time, sometimes it involves connection. There are a million ways to do it! Most importantly, Raising my Vibration has a lot to do with following the spontaneous inspiration of the moment, however strange or silly or unconventional it may show up. (Yes we know that meditation or yoga or whatever else will raise our vibrations, but if it isn't inspired and flowing in the moment, feel free to try something originally yours!) Yesterday, my expression of that looked like this. Making up my own sweet language, singing it (which is the first time I have sang in over a month and it felt fuckin great) and doing an interpretive dance to it. Sometimes my dance moves are slow and sensual, and sometimes they involve jumping all over like a jellybean and yesterday they looked like this. This activity was fun because I really let my inner child roam free (I used to make up my own languages all the time and speak in them as a kid while I played with my toys, which is pretty normal for kids- not so much adults). I also felt a very profound, ancient wisdom flowing through me during this. (The translation of the song from the new language was telling me to honor the wisdom of my body). My whole body was coursing with chills and it’s like this language and movement was moving THROUGH me and I just allowed it to happen. It felt orgasmic during the moment (This video is a re-creation, because the original moment swept over me like a spontaneous monsoon and there was no time to try and capture it- but this video was still super inspired and fun to make!) So, I encourage you to let yourself loose from the judgmental mind and see what you are inspired to do- there is no right or wrong, just do whatever the heck feels good! This is one of my favorite ways to “Raise My Vibration!” 🏼🦋#spontaneousflow#madeuplanguage#ancient#dance#raiseurvibration
Romantic relationships can be POWERFUL, ACCELERATED portals to enlightenment- when BOTH partners are DEEPLY committed to self-awareness and conscious growth. When we choose to commit to a relationship in which expansion is inevitable, the partner serves as a perfect mirror of our light and dark. You'll know you've found potential for this type of relationship when you and your partner trigger each other *perfectly*. What the partners choose to do about these triggers will determine whether the relationship fails, or reaches depths and heights beyond imagination. True love is the transformative light that brings all of our darkness to the surface for healing. This can be messy, painful, and uncomfortable at times. Brian and I have had a deeply intense week of transformation together in our relationship. The "external" challenges we have been facing in our physical worlds have stirred the pot of our internal worlds. As much as we've self discovered together in the past, we feel we are JUST scraping the surface after this week. New layers have been reached. As things have come up within us, whether it's fears, areas or shame, guilt, etc.- it's been more necessary than ever to express, in a safe space where both parties do their best to hold space and not personalize (even when we have directly triggered each other). Honest, open communication is non-negotiable. Everything that comes up is not only valid but *necessary* for the growth of both partners - (however scary it may seem). Guaranteed. The level in which both partners are willing and eager to stop pointing fingers and look inward will determine the speed and depth of evolution that can be achieved through this relationship. So- will Brian and I reach enlightenment together in this lifetime? Well, this week it felt VERY VERY far away much of the time, with glimpses of infinite potential interwoven through it all as we peeled back new layers. The most important reminder is to revel in every moment of the beautiful journey, rather than striving for a destination.🏼🦋 #consciousrelationships#enlightement#healing#portals#twinflames#spirituality#awakening#twinflame

After my little episode of self harm the other day, I've learned A LOT. I've stumbled across many resources that have shed light onto my "darkness". Any "dark" aspect of ourselves- (aspects that self harm, push others away, manipulate people and situations, abuse substances, etc) are aspects of ourselves that are trying to PROTECT us in some way. (For example, from the pain of a past trauma.) The ONLY way to "disarm" these "undesirable" and often "exiled" aspects of ourselves is to try and understand the role they're playing and how they are trying to help us. (For example, even if it doesn't seem to make logical sense that an aspect of ourselves that self harms would be trying to help us- it may be using self harm as a method of self soothing, or escaping a trauma, or trying to get love from others- etc.) In order to do this, we must be able to come from a place of compassionate curiosity towards these very defensive, wounded parts. I've learned that the part of me that is able to come from this place of compassion is my "Essential Self", which is also the essence of my True Being. It is the still center within me in which when I am connected to it I feel warmth, openness, compassion, peace, calm. I can call upon my Essential Self to assist me and I will know I am coming from this place when I feel the warmth of those sensations listed above. It is who I TRULY am. It is the "I" of the storm. From this place, I let the parts know they are safe. And that I have compassion and appreciation for the roles they've played in my life. There is no need to tell them to stop or to go away. I acknowledge them. I can even speak to them individually and initiate a dialogue by imagining the "part" sitting in a chair in front of me. I get to know the part. I see where it's coming from. Through this process they FINALLY feel seen, heard, understood for once. What relief! No longer are they being condemned. They let down their guard (sometimes slowly, but surely). Through this process our protective "parts" are no longer working so hard to keep us "safe" and *space* is created. Often this is accompanied by the discovery of newfound creativity and passions in life. 🏼🦋
Greetings 🏻 from my makeshift computer chair turned wheelchair. I can safely say I've hit somewhat of a "low" today. The frustration of not being able to speak/sing for the past month has reached a peak. We landed back on Maui yesterday and it was also the 1 month date that we thought we'd be ready to perform again and we are nowhere near healed. Besides the upset of feeling like we are letting these venues down, we deeply miss the healing that music brings us. We've been beyond bummed and have let some of this irritation out on each other. Today, we were particularly on edge with each other and I got angry. Brian gave me his bō staff and told me to go hit some shit outside and get my anger out (this is our healthy method of releasing anger)... and instead I took his bō staff began to self-harm right in our living room. I hit myself repeatedly with it as he witnessed/tried to intervene. It was ugly. I smashed my ankle and now am unable to walk. I found relief in a sick way for only but a moment before the pain set in. I immediately began to bawl on the floor as I hugged myself and begged for my own forgiveness, apologizing for doing that to myself. Self harm is never a good solution. Why would I do this to myself... cause self inflicted pain? Did I want attention that badly? Where was my self control? I've been doing so well, staying light, journaling and meditating my way into alignment, and then this happens. I feel silly. embarrassed. ashamed. What was I thinking? Brian is deeply upset by my actions and now I am using our computer chair with wheels to get around our apartment. My vocal injury isn't as much on my mind as I nurse my ankle- is that what I subconsciously wanted? Today I feel I've taken a few steps back. This post probably isn't going to raise anyone's vibration- but it's real. For me, this platform is a space for self reflection and honest self expression- rather than for half-inspired truths to appeal to the masses. The healing process isn't always pretty- sometimes we feel like we digress. But I know digression is an illusion and even this series of self inflicted events will teach me a lot. That's all for now...time to be easy on myself.🏼
After nearly 24 hours of traveling (hellooo flight delays) I am FINALLY back on Mama Maui 🏼I feel like I have been through an entire life's journey- going home is always like that. Today is for reflecting, getting back to my crystal friends (if you ordered one I will be wrapping them today! YAY!), jumping in the ocean (#1 jet lag cure), vegan food, and coming home to my alignment. More reflections to come. Ahhhh, thank you Mama Maui. 🏼#finallyhome#maui#journey#opalite#necklace#gratitude
