🌱 | Find your inner-strengths
Step into your own power.
Learn to be a survivor
Rather than a victim.
Remember that pain is simply
Growth waiting to be unmasked. { #grandrising }

☂️ | It is raining in Los Angeles
Woke up in a higher frequency
Spoke to my mother this rising
My outer is reflecting my inner work
And I am thankful.

🌀 | I accept that confusion is inevitable.
I know that it is also temporary.
I know that always passes.
I know that it is part of the process of getting clear.
It is part of the process of finding my way.
It is part of the process of learning how to strengthen my determination.
Nothing dilutes my determination.
I know that these decisions define my direction so I stay close to my truth when making them.
I stay close to my center when moving towards my goals.
I stay close to what gives me energy when I’m committing my time, love and talent.

🌳 | "We are in most of the messes
We are in because of (DIS)connection.
Our (DIS)connection from our impact
On each other and the world.
A good life is one that is connected
To its surroundings through love.
Sometimes to love means
To hold another’s pain with them.
Sometimes it means that we
Take to the streets in protest
Of all that is against love.
Sometimes it means that we
Refuse to deny our part
In the problems that stand in the way of love."
〰 Love on (your)SELF a little more this rising.
Have a blessed day x3. { #foodforthought }

🐝 | Forgive yourself
For allowing it to happen.
But know that
It needed to happen
For you to learn
The lesson
To better protect yourself
And move forward on your journey. { #grandrising }

🌞 | Everything in existence is a manifestation of the one living being we call God.
Everything is God.
Human perception is merely light perceiving light.
Matter is a mirror — everything is a mirror that reflects light and creates images of that light — and the world of illusion (the Dream) is just like smoke which doesn't allow us to see what we really are.
The real us is pure love, pure light.
This realization changed their life. Once their knew what they really were, they looked around at other huemans and the rest of nature, and they were amazed at what they saw.
I saw myself in everything — in every human, every animal, every tree, in the water, in the rain, the clouds, the earth.
Life mixed the tonal and the nagual in different ways to create billions of manifestations of Life.

🕊 | Who we are is
Who we now choose to be.
When we make mistakes
Or do not achieve the success we'd anticipated,
Let's examine our actions at THAT moment,
Then take our lessons with us and move on.
The future will become the present,
We need to anticipate and prepare for it. { #lookingforward }

🌷 | "You can’t trust yourself if you’re not listening / You can’t trust yourself if you're not fair..."
〰
I was reminded of my purpose this weekend.
I haven't been performing in a minute (literally as well as figuratively). I’ve been very detached from reality. In my head, unlearning aspects of myself I no longer find suitable, coming to terms with parts of the past, recognizing the blessings in every thing.
Growing, essentially.

The last six or seven months have been wild. Months ago, if you were to ask me where I would be now, I wouldn’t have thought I would be open to being vulnerable about my pain/insecurities. Never did I think I would be writing out my trauma for all to see lol, and never did I think people would be vibing to and singing along to my struggles (+ actually relate 100% !)
〰
Creation (n) : the act of bringing into existence of the universe, especially when regarded as an act of God.
〰
Read that again.
"An act of God."
What a privilege we artists have, to be able to reveal our wounds and simultaneously heal that of others. Sometimes I forget that this is a privilege, that this ain’t about me. This ain’t about us, it’s something bigger. We’re doing this for a bigger purpose, a purpose we might never truly understand, but that's a risk we must be willing to take as artists.

This weekend was a blessing. Thank you to @passionfruitsla + @arthoecollective for allowing me to share my craft, thanks to those who were present in the space. Thank you for laughing with me, crying with me, being joyous with me. Thank you for reminding me the importance of vulnerability, I am so thankful for the energy I received this weekend. Y’all reminded me why I do this, I am so grateful. More coming soon, peace. { #blessings }

🔸 | "Life makes sense when there is an eternal order and an eternal life behind the uncertain and momentary experience of life-and-death.
----
The more we are able to find pleasure, the more we are vulnerable to pain. Whether in background or foreground, the pain is always with us.
----
If living is to end in pain, incompleteness, and nothingness, it seems a cruel and futile experience for beings who are born to reason, help, create + love." { #alanwatts }

〰
From The Loft Sessions to many conversations, this space became a hub for creation/love/family/growth. Ideas were manifested in this space, relationships were developed, lessons were learned. I am very thankful that I experienced this chapter of my life whilst in this space, thankful I was able to create a home here as well as within myself, thankful for the beings who flowed through the space. Loft 102, thank you for your melody. { #newbeginnings }

🌷 | Set rising rituals for Self.
Started my day off with an hour dedicated to removing distractions: no electronics, no human contact, no music. I spent this hour reading, journaling, and setting my intentions for the day. It is important to start your day balanced, whatever that means to you. You will be amazed with your ability to navigate through your day to day.

Have a blessed one, on purpose tho!
