arms blindly reaching for the door that takes me home
imprisoned by a mind that has forgotten the Truth
that I am made of light
dreams dripping in sweat
a heart mending under the weight of a thousand islands.
step outside, eyes and heart open wide
you have much to live
you have much to love
you have much to give
you have had enough.
"healing comes in waves
and maybe today
the wave hits the rocks
and that's okay,
that's okay, darling
you are still healing
you are still healing." -Ijeoma Umebinyou, to be gentle with yourself

Duyguların rahat bırakılması,serbest kalması gerekir.Kendini ağlamaklı hissettiğinde ağlamalısın,gülmek istediğinde gülmelisin.Bu bastırma saçmalığını bir kenara bırakmak zorundasın..İfade etmeyi öğrenmek zorundasın çünkü sadece hislerin, duyguların,hassaslığın aracılığıyla iletişimin mümkün olduğu o titreşime ulaşabilirsin.. #youarehealing#quote#motivanitonal#as#mondaymotivation
When I decided to make my YouTube channel, it was to share my healing in hopes that it might help even just one person out there know that healing is possible, that they were not alone in their struggle, and that if they felt alone, they would have a friend in me. 💚
When I was my sickest, I felt so isolated and alone so much of the time, and the times I was able to reach out to a friend meant so much to me. The times they would listen to me go on about how I was healing with the Medical Medium protocols were so cherished, because not everyone understood or wanted to hear about it. 💚
Those people that stuck around as a part of my life for my darkest times and my rising from those ashes are my truest, most amazing treasures. They are my angels. And I wanted to pay that forward, I wanted to be someone people could talk to who had been through it and come out the other side. 💚
It has been such an amazing gift having my YouTube channel. Honestly, it has been a part of my healing journey in ways I never expected. Every time I get a comment, and all of them are so kind, heartfelt, full of love and light - it goes straight to my heart and I'm either grinning ear to ear or moved to tears, often both. Because knowing I could offer anything to someone that helps them in even the smallest way on their journey, that is a gift that fills my soul. 💚
So I want to say thank you, from the bottom of my heart, to every person who has watched even one of my videos. Thank you. And thank you for your amazing light, your life, and your powerful spirits that won't let you give up, no matter what. You are all healing warriors. I love you all so much! So I'm doing a @medicalmedium giveaway on my YouTube channel. The video link is in the comments below. Thank you for being in this amazing community with me, thank you for all of your hard work and your compassion, you all inspire me so much every day! I am so grateful. 💚💚💚💚💚💚💚💚💚 #giveaway#medicalmedium#healing#youcanheal#healingchronicillness#MCAD#EDS#POTS#CFS#spoonie#fibromyalgia#hypothyroid#PCOS#lyme#thankyou#iloveyou#youarepowerful#youarehealing#plantpowered#plantmedicine#migraines
I hope everyone I love sees and understands this. If I've learned anything from the time I spent with chronic illness, moving on from heartbreak and disappointment, and recovering from grief its that the path to "better" has many hills and valleys. It's absolutely okay and completely normal to feel sad, bad, and alone in the midst of coming out the other side. That doesn't mean you're experiencing a setback and it doesn't mean you'll never get there! Also, even if you feel like you're alone, you have me, for whatever that’s worth! ❤️ #youarehealing#thisisntasetback#youredoinggreat#youarentalone
#Celery#juice thief. On those mornings where I don't feel like chugging one of these down, my little boy #bodhi reminds me how delicious it is and how someday I will crave the stuff.
What I do know is that since starting the @medicalmedium protocol I have lost 10 lbs! I am still #breastfeeding my son and I have been unable to drop a single pound no matter how hard I tried, what #exercise program or #diet I was on.
It wasn't until I started adding celery juice and allowing #fruit back into my life that I started to #heal . I have such a long #journey ahead of me but I know this is what will help me fully heal. I am not afraid of food anymore and that, in itself, is powerful! I encourage you to read #lifechangingfoods it really is exactly what the title says it is.
Babe it’s ok to mess up and mess up bad. It’s ok to stand up and try something radically different in your work life or your relationships. Maybe you decided to tell your husband and your kids you need more help around the house and you will with love in your heart be leaving to go to Starbucks to read a book from 5-7 pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Just Cause. Maybe that doesn’t work out at first. Maybe you have to find a different way. Or how about one day you woke up decided you don’t want to feel like a wet blanket of moulding shit guilt and overwhelm is laying on your chest anymore and you are going to go to the retreat or do that healing program. And when you book it your Ego or your mother goes SCHHREEEEEEEEEEEECH. And it gets a bit messy. It’s ok. You are living in a human effing body. It’s ok. Second, third and fourty fifth rodeos are where it’s at sister. Now stand up and do that thing. #RP from @simoncholland @bexlife #gogetemgirl#yougotthis#youweremadeforthis#itsallgood#putonsomebobmarleyanddoit#imhere#yoursistersarehere#youarehealing and therefore #healingothers#kleinandkind
i go through my own seasons.
and now my very own spring.
i am coming back to life.
my soul is in bloom.
and the forest of my mind is starting to flourish again.
i’ve been in a weird mood lately. it started after i quit my job. i feel lazy, and don’t really feel like doing anything. i have been less creative. i haven’t painted anything. and i haven’t written anything either. some part of me feels guilty for being like this. but then the other part me, says it’s okay. it’s a well deserved rest. so i will let myself sleep in for a while. let myself do nothing but read a book all day, or watch my favorite movie. but i know this little vacation will have to end. i have many things i want to accomplish before i go on my first trip in february. i am slowly getting back on my feet. getting back into the groove of things. it’s weird actually, sometimes i don’t want to be productive. i procrastinate like crazy. but then when i do end up being productive, i feel absolutely amazing.
if you watched my stories for the past few days, you would know that they are destroying my childhood home. this is severely affecting my mood. i’ve been depressed because of it, and even less in the mood to do anything. watching those trees being cut down, sucks all the energy out of me. i know i won’t always be like this. it’s just a phase. i will allow myself to be emotional and fully feel everything. i have to, so i can properly let go.
and i can’t wait to get back on track. i want to create things again. paint, and write, and make more videos.
speaking of videos,
have you guys seen my latest? i uploaded a video on zero waste lifestyle tips. the link is in my bio. and i would love to hear some feedback. next, i’m going to try and film my first what i eat in a day vid😬
to a world that is hurting
i want to apologise.
i’m sorry for playing so small and so powerless.
i’m sorry for being so passive and silent.
i’m sorry for existing merely as a doormat.
i’m sorry for not having faith in myself.
i’m sorry for not trusting my judgment and relying too heavily on others.
i’m sorry for trying to please everyone i meet.
for in my passiveness and powerlessness,
i grant permission for others to be aggressive and power-hungry.
for in me playing too small,
i grant permission for others to stand way too tall.
all energy balances out.
if i swallow my power, it is over-amplified in another.
i’m sorry for the part i have played in this game.
please forgive me.
today i choose to stand tall and stand proud.
i choose to speak up when i feel it is necessary.
i choose to share what i have deep inside me.
i choose to be anchored in the power i was born with.
i choose to be a vessel of light in a time when it is needed most.
for in me holding my power in a loving way,
i grant permission for another to give up their fight.
with all the buzzing and excitement of the holidays
our energy is scattered through the air
allies of everyone
but the chaos emits everywhere.
to breathe is to bring it back down to earth
anchoring peace and all the joy
for all these things you long to experience
cannot be unless you are here.
breathe deeply now
breathe into your bones
the secrets are in the ground.
be here and now
your presence is found
and that's the greatest gift to all.
if i was an open book, i wonder what you would see
blank pages staring back or something great to read?
if i let go of the story i held before, i wonder what the words would now say
would there be something of interest or emptiness that fills the whole space?
While trying to create their dream life I have found that a lot of people fill pages with new years goals based on the physical body, but crave the benefits of the spiritual/emotional. They desire to get healthy, for they have fallen into this illusion that if the number drops on the scale then they will be happy, more excepted, beautiful. They tell themselves they will get their life together, their house organized, that project completed, and then they will feel more at peace or valued. These corrupted thoughts of achieving a healthy, beautiful, balanced life by striving to please others, or aiming to fulfill certain perfectionistic goals, is ultimately going to sacrifice the very thing they are working towards...happiness. If your roots are unhealthy, then your life will never blossom. Work on your mindset, allow Him to starve those limiting beliefs that tell you,”you are messy, so grab a mask, you are fat, so starve yourself, you are lazy, so be stressed and never sleep” let those lies go for YOU ARE MORE THAN YOUR THOUGHTS. You are valued, loved, cherished, treasured, made worthy in His love. Of course, we all have room for growth, but to believe you HAVE to achieve certain goals to be good enough for this world is a simply a deadly whisper that has been tossed into your mind. As you begin to dream 2018 and find ways to bring them into existence, I urge you to look in the mirror, to look at your life and smile. Find the joy right now. Do not allow a number or a completion of a project to dictate your worth, your beauty. Dream big, but find contentment in this moment now. Discover the light in today, and then aim to make it brighter. allowing it to grow and expand out into the world. I would love for you to leave a comment of something you are grateful for in this present moment. I love you!
why do we think that art has to come from suffering?
that to be relatable, we have to be struggling through life?
that to be loved, we have to be going through heartache and hardship?
our world was made from pure magic.
our world is a magnificent piece of art..
with or without anything being wrong with it.
so why would we be any different?
society has created a definition of the struggling artist and we, as individuals chose to embody it.
we make ourselves small so we can be seen.
we limit ourselves so we don’t become a ‘sell-out’.
we carry our pain so we have a story to tell.
but in the depths of your being is a greater creator than any story you hold could portray.
your body is a masterpiece and your soul flows with magic.
you are enough as you are with or without you pain.
you are enough as you are with or without your story.
as this year comes to a close and we are under the influence of the new moon, it’s the perfect time to reflect and celebrate.
2017 has been a massive year ~ a year of new beginnings and consequently, endings and change ~ however, in the midst of this, we have all grown immensely.
before you start focusing on your intentions for the new year or scold yourself for not doing enough this year, i challenge you to make a list of 11 things that you did this year to help you grow or improve your life and celebrate yourself.
celebrate your wins, your losses, your growth and your being.
celebrate all the things that didn’t work out that led you on a new path.
celebrate the healing that took place through experiencing illness or struggle.
celebrate your achievements.
celebrate the doors that opened and the people you met because you dared to be courageous.
celebrate the money you received or the progress you made academically.
celebrate the moments you stepped out of your comfort zone or learnt a new skill.
celebrate the time you left the house even though it felt safer cuddled up in bed or the time you said no because you needed to stay cuddled up in bed.
celebrate the letting go of your layers.
this has been a massive year and we’ve almost made it!
here’s my list ~ i’d love to see some of yours!
1. i celebrated myself for the first time
2. i let go of old hurts, relationships and habits
3. i started this platform and have connected to like-minded people
4. i begun being more vulnerable and real with people which has improved my relationships
5. i reached out for support and healing in areas of my life i have always been ashamed of
6. i embraced who i am in a more unapologetic way
7. i went away by myself to allow myself to cry and heal
8. i uploaded music online
9. i experimented with energy healing sessions
10. i learnt how to say no
11. i rekindled my love for reading and learning
thank you for being apart of this journey with me. you fill me with so much love and joy ✨💛

sometimes i feel like i’ve forgotten how to play..
how to have wholehearted fun.
by nature, i’m a very goofy and playful person but i often find my mind occupied by everything that needs to be done, the future, my insecurities, expectations, family etc.
i promised myself long ago that i would always nurture my inner child but quite often, i forget.
i’m sorry i neglect you.
i’m sorry i’m not present.
i’m sorry i get consumed by fear.
i’m sorry i pour so much energy into trying to please others that i ignore your voice.
i’m sorry i get so caught up in self-growth that i forget it’s supposed to be fun.
i’m sorry i stress too much and have a hard time slowing down.
i’m sorry i’m insecure.
i’m sorry i suppress you and i’m sorry i don’t always honour you.
i am so sorry.
please forgive me.
i love you.
