I have lost and found comfort in my skin. I have times when I identify with my physical self and times that I don't recognize the person in the mirror. I am filled with wonder at how I ended up in this body of all bodies. But mostly I am grateful for the opportunity to love in this skin.
The inspiration for these questions came many years ago. They flowed from a place of searching for greater meaning and understanding.
I have turned the questions into a postcard and have started a project to send one to each country in the world (and to each state in the US). I wonder how many people it will have to go through to get from Canada to Madagascar? If you would like to receive one, please let me know!
Somehow, these questions feel even more important now as the world watches ego-driven leadership and corporate interests eclipse the needs of the greater good . We are living through historic times, and the call for us to unleash our collective power has never been more loud. The age of the Global Citizen is here!
When everything feels like an uphill struggle just think of the view from the top.
With every struggle there are lessons that make us bitter or better. I choose to be better! I don't want to stay the same, I want to move to my next level. I want to move forward and always keep evolving.
With every struggle, you have two paths; fear or love. Choose love. #wonderfulawaken

"This next Season we will feel great big shifts as Jupiter moves to Scorpio October 11th and Saturn moves to Capricorn, the sign he rules, December 21st. Our emotional intuition is set to expand and our skill at manifesting a solid foundation complete with little luxuries will be strong for the next 2.5 years." - in5d.com •

The healing power of never ceases to amaze me! Such a powerful and moving journey. It's fascinating how we can declutter, reorganize and calm our minds with the help of these tiny natural things growing all around us. There is so much knowledge and introspection to be learned if we only open our minds to the alternative. Sending love and light to all of you this evening thank you @dark_vader7 for being my travelling companion
"Longing is a beautiful thing. It's half poison, half hope. It is triggered mainly by wild things. Oceans. Nights. The sun falling into a horizon. Edges. Sweat. Mountain air. Loss.
It doesn't know reason.
It stems from a space
That isn't defined." #vicktoriserickson #yoga
My sweet Mama we've always had a pretty psychic connection.. She gave me a book on menstruation the morning of my first period. ⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ When it came, I remember feeling confused.. an overwhelming sadness I had no words for. A little shame too. When I told her, she looked at me with complete presence, warmth and love. She made me feel initiated into something sacred... ⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀ I know this is by no means the standard experience for girls today and definitely not how her experience with menarche went. But she wanted something different for me. And now, I want nothing more than for the girls in our world to know this truth. That first period - menarche - it's a rite of passage. Something that should be honored and respected- celebrated even. Not kept hidden and left with girls feeling alone and ashamed. ⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ What's your story of your first period? How did you feel? Did you tell anyone? How did they react? How do you think that experience affects your present relationship to your cycle? Some questions to think on..
