I hope you’re having a fabulous weekend! Im back in LA after being gone for 6 weeks! So many heartfelt lessons, all kinds of flogging, dancing and life changing moments of intimacy.
After Boston, I ended up going to Washington D.C and had a total blast. At first I was having major resistance before my trip, on my way there and the first few hours. I was then reminded by thanks to a super amazing priestess friend in my life that resistance is how we build muscles! Resistance is one of the first signs of growing pains, a taste of our egos death and a glimpse of an infinite psychological and transformational rebirth. Here’s a photo of me in DC!

Now that I’m on the other side of the resistance I am becoming more aware of the difference between resistance and forcing my life. I find the biggest difference is a deep and subtle inner knowing that whatever I’m dealing with is because I know I need to go through this transformational experience or else why would I be considering it for long?
Forcing is happens when I overextend myself and rationalize my way through it. It’s like pushing the breath when you’re exhaling with extra force (almost like unconscious whistling) as oppose to holding and containing the breath as a way to cultivate more life force energy within you. The more I let go of forcing anything, the more I trust the subtle resistance of growth guiding me to more bliss bunny expansion and heart yum wisdom.
This Monday there will be a Full Moon eclipse and it will be a powerful time of Manifestation. This Lunar eclipse is all about manifesting from your hearts desires. Take some time to honor this important and wise part of you. Gather with your closest friends, community or write your hearts dream away!
On Moonday Eclipse, I’ll be receiving a 4 hour massage and then most likely doing a sunset hike ritual dance with a bestie. I find when I’m in an open and soft space especially after a massage, my hearts desires is even more clear.
May you be guided to deepen the desires of your heart on this Full Moon eclipse.

Love & Blessings,
