Life as Ceremony 💫 With an overflowing well, I am grateful to have spent precious time in the presence and temple of @kakawsana. In prayer, song, silence and celebration for the ceremony we're capable of creating every waking day. How marveling it is to view life as ceremony, to allow life to orchestrate itself as its already divinely designed and accompany it with a wide open, willing heart.
While giving clay some time to breathe, I met myself in a relationship with Cacao. Listening and learning.. loving and liberating. Beloved ally, thank you for your transcending medicine. Beloved Paola y Gustavo, my dear teachers, amigos y familia, gracias por la medicina de su amor, su luz y su camino juntos. I am honored to walk alongside you🌰🙏🏽💛 #35mm

La Luna Leona • a motherly mirror of our own magnificent vessel. Blessings of love, acceptance, patience.
As time shifts rhythm and flow, I find myself soaring with change and grounded with reflection. What a beautiful gift it is to witness visions grow💫 visions you've birthed, nourished and let their wings take flight. I'm grateful for all those who have caught and hold a little piece of my story once upon a chapter. I'm grateful for these time capsules, they'll forever tell stories of a story being written with clay between my fingernails and metamorphosing dreams. #35mm
Stories Of Expansion 🍂🍃
An invitation to shed and reclaim laid patiently at my feet for months and months until I was ready to receive, dive inward, release and birth myself onward. Being home in Ojai this past week has cradled me while reintegrating and healing from my journey and catching the seasonal bug flying around. All is healing and blooming, around and within us. Seeds are cracking open, grass is growing and ash is forming into fertile soil.
Following my journey with Abuelita Ayahuasca, teachings have been swirling and dancing on repeat as I slowly process each ceremony and marinate in her abundantly brewing medicine. A las, I've landed.. grounding home in my heart, unfolding the layers of deep expression and expansion.
To surrender is to soften. To decease is to rebirth. To witness the flesh of our human experience, the making of our vessel, the stories embedded in our bones. Our story, our most powerful tool, is ours to own. In this life, we are chosen. As children we were given a story, whether we liked it or not.. it chose us. For me, the burden of my story began burning early on. For years, we subconsciously carry our stories as we explore, rebel and learn to welcome it as our ally and shape it into our super power. Here, we are chosen to be channels of expression as storytellers. Who we are, what we do, why we are the way we are and how we choose to sharpen and share our tools is only but our greatest work of art. We carry the capacity to transform and ability to transmit all the love and forgiveness we choose to. Every morning, situation, challenge, fork on the road.. it's all a choice, laying patiently at our feet. Whenever you receive it, I root you on to remember the fruits of your labor. Embrace the medicine forever fully stocked in your heart. Embody the empowering story you were given and chosen for. Invite it along for the ride. Let it guide you, break you, humble you, expand you. Make yourself a magical messenger.
From here, this space, this truth, I share my story for the love of vulnerability. From this space, I am of service to learning, healing, giving and receiving. From this truth, I strive to live by every waking sunrise ✨👇🏽✨
