You are the source of your happiness. Write a new story inside.
I know this can be such a hard truth to swallow, but it is can also be empowering. Look at it this way:
If someone else is responsible for your happiness, it means the same person can take it away. You don't want anyone but you to have such a power over you.
I hope you decide today to write a new script. You have all the power.

Happy Monday! It’s gonna be a great week!
Hope you all had a lovely weekend. I had a few challenges this weekend that brought up some lessons for further integration.
In the past, I lived my life based on what other people expected. I was who they wanted me to be.
I was the person who was quiet because I learned it was better not to be heard. I was “good” because I didn’t want to be punished for being bad. I wanted to belong because the pain of being different was too great. I learned to say yes when I meant no.
That last one came up this weekend, saying yes when I meant no. I said yes to something with family knowing that I was not in a space to be present, and then I didn’t show up. My guilt and regret were tag teaming me almost the whole day.
The point is, lessons will come up again if they were not integrated fully the first time. They also come up again when it’s time for deeper embodiment of who you are. Sometimes, like I did this weekend, you will totally fudge up. Do what you need to get back up and course correct.
We are all champions in this life. There will be days when you fall but plenty more where you rise. There may be weeks when you don’t accomplish what you hoped but this is not one of them. This week, you will accomplish more than you planned and feel like a badass doing it. That is a choice you can make today and everyday! Let’s do this! 🙌🏼

In spiritual communities there is much suppression of and confusion about anger.
It’s understandable- anger fuels violence, creates separation, turns the subject of anger into “other”. It’s easy to see how we would try to deny it, might judge and shame ourselves and others when we feel it.
But there’s another way to look at anger. What if we could see anger as a strong wave that comes once in a while when the ecosystem needs a reboot? It comes in a powerful moment, moves some things around, and then it is gone, and the environment has a fresh start.
What if we could allow anger to move through us, see what it is cleansing, and, learning from it, allow it to pass?
I took this selfie in a moment when anger was receding from my body- but I had felt it completely, and it fueled me creating a boundary. I really needed to be alone, but I didn’t feel I could advocate for my needs and so anger came to give me the energetic push to have my needs met.
And then it left.
And the people I had expressed my anger toward were not hurt or bothered.
The anger hadn’t become putrefied or twisted because I had honored it immediately and allowed it to be a clarifying, cleansing power.
When we can have a mature relationship with anger, we stop judging others for theirs.
There is a lot that is incredibly fucked up in the world right now. Anger often fuels the movements that seek to heal the massive institutional wounds created by extraction and domination.
Racism, sexism, classism, ableism, industrial agriculture, endless war, capitalism, all these systems that deny freedom, sovereignty, and life to many are so ingrained in the consciousness of the masses that anger is often the alarm bell that wakes people up.
Can we approach anger this way? As a force of cleansing love? As a force that shows us what needs clearing and healing? When anger next moves through your body can you feel it completely and still come home to your heart, seeing the subject of anger as a part of your own self?

In the Beauty and Hair industry we are natural healers. We want to help everyone we come into contact with, and a common problem I have seen with Salon Owners I work with, is that they don't know where to stop. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This begins as empathy, trying to help our team, our friends, our family wherever we possibly can. This makes us begin to see ourselves as the only person that can ever help anyone or any problem. This is then turning to EGO.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Ego in business or life, is toxic. Ego holds back, creates fear and craves the things that keep us in our lowest state and not our highest selves.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Ego will cost you business.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Ego will cost you relationships.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Ego will cost you time.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Ego will cost you dreams.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As your success grows, boundaries must be set in place to keep ourselves nurtured, before we can do anything else. Tell me, where do you feel you are drained or frustrated due to no boundaries? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I invite you to set some new boundaries and new standards for your time, money and where you don't put your needs first. This isn't selfish, this is essential. & the best thing is, it helps everyone around you SO much more. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The more grateful I am, the more beauty I see. - Mary Davis

Growing up, my mother often said this phrase. It's a Brazilian proverb that I always loved. ⠀
It applies to many things, but when it comes to business, my take on this is that whatever you will do won't be satisfactory for everybody. One will never please everyone. Much like not everyone liked the Beatles, or despite the thousands of fans, iPhones still displease many, even hardcore fans of the product. ⠀
When it comes to branding, this saying gets more interesting. ⠀
I'm of the camp that you should first start with yourself - what you love to do, what you can stand by, what you want to share with the world. ⠀
Not the other way around - i.e., look to what the market wants and do that. ⠀
It may work in the beginning, but it's disconnected from you. When you are purpose-driven, meaning seeker entrepreneur, your talents, gifts, and joy (yes, I dare to say the word!) is where it is at!⠀
Yes, you can see how your love will fit within the market and how you may tweak it for adjustments, but you still have to do what YOU LOVE and is ALIGNED WITH YOU. ⠀
This position is not for the faint of heart, and it's the core of this heroic journey on steroids. ⠀
How do you stand by what you love despite the doubts and the many (often well-meaning) commentaries and advice about adjusting what you do to fit better with the market? Do you have a story to share on this? I'd love to hear. ⠀
Share it in the comments!⠀

One of the ways to decode the messages arising as sensations in the body is by using the map of the chakras. The most common one that we tend to use is the 7 chakra energy system that gives us a framework to understand the significance of the sensations and what message the body is trying to communicate to us about the different dimensions of our lives. Each charka is associated with elements that reflects our inner nature. One way of activating and balancing our energy centres is through visualising the elements while connecting with the physical body and tracking the sensations as we imagine what it might look like to be in perfect health and flow.
The medicine drum meditation workshop that I offer combines the wisdom from the East and the West to bring together a guided meditation experience that allows you to drop into deeply meditative and trance like states of consciousness to tap into the wisdom of your body and gain insight on what you need at this time. Booking are open for our next session on the 25th of August. (Please comment below and I will send you the details)
Here is some feedback for the session: "Anjali's Medicine Drum Meditation Workshop was an incredibly powerful, healing and cathartic experience for me. The shamanic drumming allowed me to tap into a meditative state effortlessly and the way she synced up the chakras with various elements was fascinating and illuminating... And I loved the way of encouragement in which we were invited to visualise what we wish to see, to manifest that new energy into our lives... The intimacy of the group was just perfect for the day. The synchronicity gave me goosebumps. I would recommend this workshop and Anjali’s skills as a practitioner to everyone ready for a magnificent day of creativity and healing."~ Tara
Sadhu Katha: "Ajgar karein na chakri, chidiya karein na kaam. Das Malu kah gaye sabka daata Ram "
This was one of the riddles given to me by my Guruji during my wandering times with sadhus. This wasn't a command or an advice. Just looking at that situation of my life he said realise this or better in Hindi "anubhav" Karo. In English it would literally mean " The python doesn't have a job, the birds don't go to work, Das Malu said everyone's provider is Ram". He didn't expect me to come back with an answer, definitely didn't expect me to become lazy ,quit everything & depend on some god. I asked him what should I do. He just said realise this .
While doing different things or while nondoing this piece of jewel that he gave me has always been revealing it's light since than. ( sharing the knowledge of my teachers, & the process of imparting knowledge in the oral tradition)

A recurring theme that’s been coming up over the past few months in numerous conversations and meditation is “home”. For anyone else that geeks out on animal symbolism it’ll come as no surprise that the turtle also has appeared countless times during this period too (in real life – thanks Maui), on cards, in dreams, street art etc.
The turtle not only is a representation of home being within (cue: home is where the heart is). They also signify underlying trust in Mother Earth, wisdom as ancient as the Earth herself, the importance of grounding and the art of patience.
All lessons I’ve been learning and growing through of late. Trusting that no matter what, I’m always going to be taken care of by the Universe. Knowing that all the wisdom I’ll ever need is within. Making sure I ground when I’m feeling like a space cadet and when it comes to patience, learning to be patient and compassionate with myself.
I went to a sound & cacao ceremony yesterday hosted by soul sisters Angelique & Charlotte and the theme of their event was “home is where the heart is” of course, exactly what I needed to close out Leo season. What came up for me during the session in the form of painful physical sensations was a reminder of what’s been coming up in countless conversations and meditations of late – the fact that the extent at which I give far outweighs my receptivity to receive. Face palm moments for somebody that stresses the importance of self reflection. The inner work never stops and when you don’t look at what you need to deeply enough, the Universe’s subtle clues like cute turtles and conversations can turn into not so pleasant wake up calls – like health scares, yep it’s all connected and I’ve had all of the above thrown in the mix.
To the 7 ppl I can think of off the top of my head that have reflected this back to me recently, thank you, I’m listening and diving deeper. To those of you reading, if anything is resonating take notice 🐢 #cacaoceremony

I am in a work setting of some kind. I am with a really attractive man, I think we are both in our 30s. He starts to embrace and kiss me. We are definitely a couple. Our kisses become more passionate. I am really enjoying the embrace and the kissing emotionally and physically. I know I am in the arms of my beloved. But suddenly I remember we are at work. I pull back and say “we can’t be snogging now, we are at work”. He laughs and pulls me close and we just enjoy the embrace, it seems he had forgotten too. At first pass I have no idea what this dream is about but as I ponder a bit Jean Raffa’s chapter about a woman’s developing relationship with the animus comes to mind (Dream Theatres of the Soul: Empowering the Feminine Through Jungian Dreamwork”) and I think that this dream is suggesting that currently there is a good connection with a deal of passion involved! I will read the chapter again today, but what I know is that animus energy is about helping the Feminine become more manifest. In my outer life I have been contemplating running a dream group via video conference after someone contacted me to enquire about dream groups in their local area. I think the dream is positive encouragement about this but also reflects some kind of discomfort around it which I need to give some attention to first.

To align and connect with our highest self, it requires conscious effort and consistency. Our essence, our Real self, lives within our deep heart, the place within where we can see things as they are.
It is the field that Rumi describes this place. “Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I'll meet you there. When the soul lies down in that grass, the world is too full to talk about.”
Through our consistent deep work, we start to peel back our layers and create opportunity to find out who we really are underneath and the capacity we carry that lives deep within this field.
Each layer we work through, uncovers a little more of who we are. The deeper we go, the more we reveal. The more we reveal, the more we can heal. It is through our healing that our divine light and essence can shine through.
Our Real Self begins to infuse more with our healed personality and we become more aligned. We become more empowered. It is a dedicated practice to uncover all of our layers. The beauty of this connection is that we can consciously connect to this place, this field, whenever we want to, need to or aspire to.
With intention and bringing our awareness to our central channel that runs along our spine, we can consciously connect our energy to the core of the earth and the highest vibration we can reach.
This moves us into alignment. This grounds our energy and brings us home to ourselves. We can follow this column of light along our central channel and rest when we come to our heart.
The deeper we go in with intention, the more consistently we come to the field when our Highest Self lives in our deep heart.Here we are always present and connected; where we can always see things as they are, not as we project or perceive them to be.

Live YOUR life
We zijn allemaal bewust of onbewust op zoek naar geluk. We blijven maar zoeken en denken vaak dat als we iets bereikt hebben we dan opeens het geluk zullen ervaren, de “als ... dan”-utopie. Waarom gebruik ik het woord “utopie”? Wel dat is omdat we het geluk niet kunnen zoeken extern, geluk kunnen we enkel vinden diep in onszelf. Pas wanneer we weer in connectie komen met wie we werkelijk zijn, kunnen we weer geluk gaan ervaren. Het is nodig weer te kunnen voelen wie we echt zijn diep binnenin, waar houden we van, wat laat ons hartje sneller kloppen, wat geeft ons een goed gevoel, wat tovert een glimlach op ons gezicht,...? Het is een must om ons eigen pad te gaan bewandelen, onze eigen intuïtie te gaan volgen, om te doen wat goed voelt voor onszelf. Blijf bij jezelf, zoek af en toe eens de stilte op en luister naar wat je lichaam je vertelt, word je bewust van wat je lichaam en geest nodig hebben, wat doet je weer stralen en gun het jezelf, vind jouw geluk terug in jezelf! ~
“It doesn’t have to make sense. It just has to make you happy.”
Posted @withrepost • @message.from.beyond Cognitive flexibility refers to the brain’s ability to transition from thinking about one concept to another. The quicker you are able to switch or “shift” your thinking from one dimension (e.g. color of an object) to another (e.g. shape of an object), the greater your level of cognitive flexibility. Rigid thinkers are poor at adapting to the introduction of novel stimuli and shifting their thinking to accommodate various changes.
Cognitive flexibility not only helps when faced with unexpected situations, but it helps you update your belief system when exposed to better information. If you learn that smoking causes lung cancer, but are unable to shift your thinking to accept the more accurate information – you may be cognitively inflexible or “rigid.” There are varying degrees of cognitive flexibility as well. Two people may be considered cognitively flexible, but one may be more flexible than the other. In other words, both individuals may be able to shift their thinking to adapt to new stimuli, but one may be able to accomplish this at a faster rate.
Cognitive flexibility is useful in that it helps people adapt to novel scenarios and information such as: moving to a foreign country, unexpected demands in the workplace, and/or a last-minute change of plans. There are many nuanced, technical definitions of “cognitive flexibility,” but to keep things simple – think of it as the ability to shift your thinking as an adaptation to new stimuli.

“Your fear of looking stupid is what’s holding you back.” - dunno who said this 💬😂
I’ve unknowingly upheld this mentality most of my life and because of it, I was always scared to try new things 😞
I feel like we all find ourselves approaching many things in life with a similar mindset:
📊 The belief that “we’re not ___ enough”
❌ The fear of totally failing
🕢 The thought that it’s too late to start
We make up these false truths to protect us from these uncomfortable feelings, but they prevent us from moving forward, from growing, from LIVING➡️🏞✨
I’ve made some pretty hefty progress in the last year; dipping into black runs + the terrain park 🙌🏼🎉 and I’m really proud that I was able to move through these limiting beliefs, slowly build up my confidence and technique, even through injuries, and get to where I am now ❄️☃️
Because if I had never started, I’d just be in the exact same position as I was before; unhappy that I wasn’t “good” enough, and unhappy that I wasn’t doing anything about it💥
Is this something you can relate to?☝🏼

I burnt a list of all the things the ever hold be back...
It was a BLOODY LONG list I'm not gonna lie.
I cried ALOT.
Tears of relief and tears of shock.
Shock that some of the most crippling things that have held me back have nothing to do with me!!! Worry of how other people will see me, the change in me.
Worry I'll outgrow friends and family.
Worry I may be misunderstood.
A whole lot of stupid people pleasing.
Man that stuff gets exhausting right!!! Anywayz...... BURNNNNNN 🔥🔥🔥🔥 This is such a powerful exercise anyone can do.
Take half an hour out for yourself and write down all the things that you feel hold you back.
E.G..... I choose to let go of the belief that I'm not educated enough.
I choose to let go of the belief that I'm too busy to attract my dream life.... And so on....ALL THE THINGS!!! Once you've done this light a candle and burn these limiting beliefs away (safely 😁) Feel the weight lift
Let the tears poor if you need to
You've got this 😘 .
made the mistake of checking my phone first thing in the morning today instead of my usual morning routine that involves breathwork, prayer, making coffee, and reading before touching my phone. ooh. my anxious thoughts rushed in, spiking my cortisol + norepinephrine levels, most likely.
so, i’m going to do breathwork now and read a few pages of this awesome book, Presence, so I can be present for the rest of today.
have a good monday morning. let go of past mistakes and practice resetting your mindset.
Happy Monday beautiful one! ✨
I know for many of you, you woke up this morning dreading the fact it was Monday.
In a previous life Mondays meant another BIG demanding week of stress, problems and everyone wanting something from me.
If you feel like this; here is a something to help boost your Monday or at least think about. . .
When you feel like quitting: REMEMBER WHY YOU STARTED! . .
💫 Why did you start your beautiful business?
💫 Why did you choose your beautiful career?
💫 What do you love?
I’d love to know, comment below 💕

You got pissed again cause you perceived a slight. And you reacted…as usual. You told him how you felt cause you read as long as you used “I” and not “you” this should be okay.
Millions of women have done that…”I feel this,” “I feel that.” Thousands of them are under my care now.
And he pulls away still, just like when you still said “you did this,” “you did that.” Nothing has changed and now you’re regretting your (over)reaction only minutes later, so what do you do? Right, apologizing. This is the 10th time this month you have been apologizing.
And he said “Don’t be sorry, be different.” Yup, he doesn’t want your apology. The more you do it, the more unstable you look to him. So what to do?
Many of you are so reactive you keep making mistakes that you regret only minutes later. There is one thing that fixes a mistake like no other, I will reveal in this class what that is. Do you know how men show they’re sorry? I will also reveal in this class through an real-life example of my boyfriend. That’s what you should also do. If you always feel like you’re walking on eggshells, you need this class.
I saw this with my own eyes in a video clip and had to share. •
Do you ever have days when you wonder why me? Why’s it so much easier for everyone else and when will it be my turn? I’m sure we all do and you can continue to believe this or feel this way, but I promise it won’t get you to where you want to go. Do you think JLo ever wonders why me and when will it be my turn? I doubt it.. she just works her arse off and chases her dreams with absolute focus and the most incredible work ethic ever!! •
I want you to spend less time doubting yourself and your abilities and stop looking at what others are doing. Imagine what would happen if you turned all of your focus to your business and all the incredible possibilities that await you. ✨✨

Do you ever notice how your own wants and desires can be swayed by outside opinion if you aren’t paying attention? 🤦🏼♀️ I find that this incredible-slighty-bizzare tool we use on the daily, can begin to warp our expectations of what life should look like. 👎🏻 Somewhere along the way you can spend too much time looking at your best friend from primary school’s love life, your old co-worker’s incredible overseas trip, or even your ex’s new girlfriend’s diet and think, you should be living like them. 🙈
You can become warped into thinking there way is better, or maybe I should try that. 😬
But what’s the point declaring, I’m going to travel the world, if home and focusing on your career is what’s calling you. 🤷🏼♀️What’s the point becoming blinded with what you think the next right step is based on other peoples own adventures, personal timelines and life?🙅🏼♀️
So on the weekend, I sat down and got clear about where I want to be placing my energy, what is most important to me (joyous) it became clear I had three main areas, my health and fitness, become stronger and fitter, my own self care - giving back to myself & simple pleasures and my relationships. 🌈🌈
I had such a fun time sitting down and uncovering my new vision I am calling in, plus my values at this current season of my life, I decided to create a gift for you. Yes gifts is my love language 🎁 To help you dive into this, because you know I believe in the power of sitting in silence, connecting in with yourself to help you get clear about a LOT in life 🧘🏼♀️ I have a ‘meet your future self’ meditation you can download now.

Sooo, let’s just rewind the clock to 12 months ago. I was an anxious, stressed mess, in a job that I was hating and not getting what I desired out of my relationships. I was burning the candle both ends with study and work, I felt trapped and like I just couldn’t win with anything.
Fast forward a year, I’m working at a firm I love, with an incredible team, I’m on a secondment with an international bank and getting opportunities that I didn’t think I was worthy of because of the comments that were so deeply embedded in my psyche from my previous job. Comments that I believed to be true because I didn’t know what I know now to recognize this toxic behaviour. I also took the plunge and created this online platform, something I’d always wanted to do, but didn’t believe I had a message to share.
A change in workplace, regular yoga and essential oils were all necessary ingredients for this rebirth 🙌🏽 always learning and evolving to become the best version of me. Committed to the growth and inner work!
It’s important to look back, not to dwell but to realize how far you’ve grown and evolved as a person. I think it’s important to reflect regularly and give a bit of kudos to yourself. Trust in your journey ✨
Our unprocessed life experiences are stored in our body as emotional pain. When those uncomfortable feelings come to the surface and we don’t know how to handle them, we do whatever it takes to run away from the discomfort by means of food, sex, shopping, alcohol, etc, which is a form of self-betrayal and self-abandonment. The relief is very temporary and when it wears off the discomfort is still there. But our emotional body, just like our physical body knows how to heal itself and it naturally gravitates towards wholeness. When it's ready to heal it needs our unconditional presence. We need to learn to stay with the discomfort no matter what. Even if we want to run. Even if it's heavy and difficult. Even if it feels unbearable. We’ve got to stay with it. This is how real healing occurs. This is how we integrate and become whole. By feeling.
