Ya know, for a long time I was paralyzed by fear.
I felt like I 'couldn't' paint. I thought what I would do now would never measure up to what I've done in the past.
But I educated myself more. I meditated more. I listen to podcasts, lectures and motivational talks as I paint to get me out of my head.
So much fear gets built up in us the longer we resist taking action.
Our fear and doubt begins to subside the moment we decide to act.
And when we act, we realize fear really is just False Evidence Appearing Real. .
Out here : in here – exercising trust. So much trust and so much patience. So much patience and so much surrender.
I am so provided for by this abundant, gracious Universe. I have been planting the seeds of my dreams– taking the little steps + actions in the spirit of all that I love and wish for more of. Why must we doubt the profound, prolonged ripples of one small act in the now? Now, with these planted seeds, it is time to water, to bathe in the light, to turn + cultivate the soul-soil for healthy, resilient growing...
I freaking love life. And I am so grateful, so honored to be living out this existence.

This week, in Mexico, was the first time in the last 10 years of my adult life that I fully vacationed. Sure, I travel a lot but it's often geared toward growing my business, working on myself and becoming of greater service to my clients.
I never really admitted to myself that I didn't know how to vacation. It's embarrassing, self-care and self-love is my humantra! Truth is, when we up our truth game, on some level, we become a beginner at everything and I'm learning the fineness of realignment with myself which means I'm a super baby beginner, wearing a crown bedazzled with the stepping stones that got me right here.
It's a delicate path with a roar so loud the sound waves are breaking all that I no longer need to hold or tolerate, in my body and in my life. Goodbye pain in my foot that tells me I need to stand for others before I stand for myself, "goodbye tension in my womb that tells me I'm never creating fast enough or well enough, hello patience and listening, hello compassion and forgiveness" became forms of mantras I'd whisper under the velvety turquoise Caribbean waves.
I learned that I can give my body all the room it needs to talk to me. I learned that in every moment, layers upon layers of information stream through my consciousness with a desire to be decoded. Life jostling through me toward alignment with my deepest truth and soul knowing. ...
I spent most of my life being skeptical about that. Is there such a thing as truly being in alignement? I know what that damn vortex feels like but it's so éphémère. Can it really not be so hard and this easeful to be in this deeply empathic body and not feel it all allllll the time?? Yes, it can be. The awareness of it and resilience within it is a huge part of my purpose.
Doesn't mean it's not all easy but the challenge to grow into ourselves can be fiercely enlivening. ...
I learned that desire in action = magic. When I follow it, when I move my body into, under, toward my desires, the whole world becomes an orchestra.
The best part is that I am an instrument I get the privilege to learn to keep retuning and learn to play in harmony with all that is life.
Mexico wisdom for you, love L💕

There is a Kundalini Yoga sutra that reminds “There is a way through every block.” Think about it this way—your biggest life goals that you’ve not yet conquered, are your blocks. What if I told you that in three weeks you could crush one of your loftiest of goals?
Sounds impossible right? But what if I said you MUST. The block is everything standing between now and your goal’s realization.
Now brainstorm. You MUST find a way through the block, you MUST achieve the goal. How?
Changes the way you think about it doesn’t it?! ・・・

Realise you are and always have been limitless and you will certainly fear less.
For when we access who we truly are, the space experienced here and now, our mind becomes silent, we become One with all.
As fear is only born through the perception of duality, hence only experienced by a mind grappling with presence.
As when this moment and nothing else demands your attention, there is nothing else but now.
When we are here and now, all becomes possible and we are truly alive ✌🏼️❤️ 💕 #newmoon#moonstuff#rosequartz#love#sensitive#highlysensitive#hsp#infj#empath#indigo#supersensitive#sensitivebadass#spiritjunkie#lifecoach#lightworker#intuitive#modernmystic#magic#divine#spirituality#yoga#kundaliniyoga

Från sten trappan till det gula huset med de vita knutarna betraktar jag månen.
Det är samma måne som jag såg igår...
Men platsen är inte densamma nu som då.
Den här staden är bekant men känslan är främmande.
Någonting nytt har landat.
För det som en gång var hemma är nu en plats långt långt där...borta...❤️

"Don't take anything personally.⠀
Nothing others do is because of you.
What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream.⠀
When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won't be the victim of needless suffering."⠀
-Don Miguel Ruiz⠀
My memories are popping off over on Facebook so I’m taking it back to NOLA cause we’re going back to NOLA!!

And this man and Thrive and memories cause I’m sappy like that ❤️ #seeyounexttuesday
I’ve been in a bit of a creative rut lately, wondering exactly what I want my role to be in the online spaces I’ve been able to build up the past 10 months. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
... how do I want to help people?
... what’s my purpose?
...how have those things changed since I first started blogging and how should I adapt and reorganize to stay in line with my goals? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you’re in a creative rut, it might be time to ask yourself those questions and also to consider: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What am I truly passionate about?
Am I being true to me or am I trying too hard to be like other successful creators?
Is it time to reassess what I’m doing so that I can get out of my creative rut? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
After asking myself these questions, I came to the conclusion that it WAS time to make some pretty big changes, which has given me a refreshed perspective and passion for what I do! If you’re in a creative rut, take some time away from all the noise of other people’s work and ask yourself what YOU want to offer the world! 👍🏼👩🏼💻🎉💛🙈🗓
Taking a moment breath. The last few weeks I’ve been neglecting my need to slow down and refuel. My stomach are giving me signs that it’s time to remember those moments of stillness, with no input from screens and phones. So I want to challenge you (and myself) to this weekend spend time away from empty scrolling through the different social media feeds. (I’m actually working this weekend so my weekend has already started 😉) Photo by @aesoderlund
I also have to remember that life goes up and Down - and when it is going horrible - like REALLY HORRIBLE - the most amazing time often awaits on the other site. I should have known it by now, since it has been like that in my life for years 😂 I just had the most amazing day to day. I had to cancel a kind of job as a statist today, but then I out of no where got a call with an even bigger opportunity for a big TV series in Denmark instead - I am SO excited!!! And I can't believe I was one of their favorites, so they even made comprises on my terms, because I had to leave earlier for Work ☺️💕 I did over an hour of cardio-strength training too (omg I felt like dying several times 😂), before I had to leave and take care of two little girls. And we had the loveliest time in the garden. Playing in the sand. Jumping on the trampolin (it was hilarious!) etc. Where the neighbours' little girl wanted to play too. So all of the sudden I was taking care of three. And we were all laughing 💕 Now I am home again, have been eating a lovely meal and watching some youtube before I will do more assignments. Having a nice place to live with stability is so important for me. I truly feel blessed. Things are finally turning around. A great home, a new loving relationship, great old and soon to be new Work. Exciting opportunities as an statist in the television World of acting. My instagram with my lovely loyal followers. Spring is finally here. My lovely friends and family. A good grade for a Big assignment, which I did last minute in the middle of my depression a couple of months ago. And my health is finally good again 💕 Sometimes we all need a day like my day where we are just happy and things are great - eventhough we are at Work and have to do practical stuff. In between we just have to remember to count our blessings and have fun in between the "to-do" list 💕
Hoe goed ken jij je eigen grenzen?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Zeg jij op tijd STOP tegen jezelf?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Onlangs kreeg ik na het avondeten een boost aan energie.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
En dat gebeurt niet zo vaak!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Ik zette mij achter de computer en stuurde mails,⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
reageerde op social media, bedacht wat ik na de lezing van 16/05 nog allemaal kan doen voor jullie, ...⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
En toen kreeg ik ook nog zin om foto's te selecteren die hier en op Facebook passen.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Ik keek naar de klok.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Bijna 21u.. oeps..⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
En ik voelde dat er wel wat spanning in mijn lijf zat.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Dat is voor mij een alarmbel!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Ondanks dat ik nog veel mentale energie had,⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
gaf mijn lijf duidelijk aan dat het genoeg was voor die dag.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Ik ben dus gestopt met werken⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
en heb de tijd genomen om even 'terug' te komen.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Bij mij is dat een bad, boek en thee.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Toen ik in bed kroop, voelde ik dat mijn lijf terug oké was.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
De spanning was weg.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Wanneer we het hebben over 'grenzen aangeven', ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
denken we automatisch aan de ander.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Vb: Jij vraagt me iets, en ik zeg nee.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Maar het is nog véél belangrijker om ook je eigen grenzen te kennen! Om te weten wanneer je genoeg schermen gehad hebt, wanneer je best kan stoppen met werken, wanneer je best kan stoppen met 'lummelen', enzovoort.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Ook daar hebben we het over tijdens de avond voor hoogsensitieve vrouwen van 16 mei! Alle verdere info en tickets vind je via de link in mijn bio. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Een kameleon van lego. Bouw je eigen Kameleon van lego. Super leuk!😊 De Kameleon
Lieve kleine Kameleon,
De wereld is 1 grote ondekkingsreis. Volg je eigen weg,luister naar jouw eigen gevoel.
Een kameleon past zich niet aan de omgeving aan om zich te verstoppen. (Camouflage). Ik zie een Kameleon als een krachtig dier met positieve eigenschappen, je mag erin geloven,dan worden deze mooie eigenschappen ook zichtbaar naar de buitenwereld.
Deze spreuk is daarom voor jou:
Je hoeft je niet altijd aan te passen aan de omgeving,je hoeft je niet te verstoppen,je mag gewoon jezelf zijn. Je mag stralen met alle prachtige kleuren die je bezit,jouw talenten.
Een kameleon verandert van kleur door licht, temperatuur en hoe hij zich voelt.Is hij bang?Dan wordt hij onzichtbaar. Hij kan zich dan onzichtbaar maken. Dat gevoel ken je wel,dat je weg kruipt als je bang bent. Als hij boos is wordt hij rood.Je kunt ook rood worden, als je boos bent.Als hij op zijn gemak is en zich rustig voelt zal hij niet van kleur veranderen. Als we op ons gemak zijn en ons rustig voelen, hebben we deze emoties niet en veranderen we niet van kleur. Maar ben je jezelf en blijf je jezelf. En straal je met alle kleuren die je al hebt,je mag je emoties,kwaliteiten en talenten laten zien.Je mag trots zijn wie je bent als persoon.
