  • How to get your guy to change 👉⁠
⁠
⁠
Show up in every moment with your true power - the magnificent feminine energy that creates life, enables change, heals with the most powerful of glances. ⁠
⁠
⁠
Flow that positive essence of your soul towards other women, lift them up, allow the mirror that you find their beauty within to catch yours as well.⁠
⁠
⁠
Let him change, evolve and heal in the way he needs to - even if that means stepping away from you. The depth at which we love them and let go is the depth at which we can love ourselves and let go to the mysterious, magnificent unfolding of this life.⁠
⁠
⁠
Know your worth, the ancient energy that drives your womanhood, and magnify that power within yourself until you meet another soul who matches your own and you two then become the most potent of mirrors for each other in the sacred space of partnership.⁠

  • Something I always ask a new male date is: Tell me about your friendships with other men.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If he doesn't have solid guy friends, it's a huge red flag.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As a  man, do you only ever open up to women? Do men not seem 'safe' to you for heart-to-heart conversation? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What this does to your relationship is to make your female partner the only and entire resource for you to deal with your emotional world, and this is not hot. It can really kill desire. And if you don't open up to her or to anyone, but rather bottle things up, then it's even worse.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is the challenge facing men today: what does non-sexual intimacy with other men look like? Culturally, men are not supposed to be feeling sharers but rather analyzers, problem-solvers, or fighters. It's a very limiting view. Because we know that men are made of stardust, just like the rest of us. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Homophobia has robbed men of heart-centered relating with other men. But relying entirely on women for deep connection can make men feel like little boys to women - a sure-fire way to kill desire. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What's holding you back from deeper male friendship?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • In love series: Mother of an eleven year old.

“I’ve got you under my skin.
I am
with you in me,
and more.

Shaping my being.
Endlessly your Mother
Honourably
infinitely beyond you.
As my being is all free.

In this existence of yours.
In me.
And out.
I am.

Infinite.”

How am I woman, beyond being a mother?

As I reflect, I honour the opportunity to remind myself of all that I am.
The multi versions of being a woman.

And I love the Authentic Relating practice of “un-damning” those concepts that have us in prejudice.

Feel the power of redefining who you are.
And how much play could come with it.
And how much curiosity and freedom?
Everyday, being born again...

Aiming high.

The WOMAN OF ME programme:

  • I was going to write a post about creating healthy space from others that aren't able to meet you as deeply, to care for your own spiritual growth... but life had the opposite message for me today! 

Recently I shared a few things with a friend that I didn't know how they would be received because they were more 'controversial' or an experience that not many people can directly relate to. 

I was ready for disagreement or a response that didn't fully see me, because me sharing was actually an act of self love, of fully seeing and validating ~myself~

To my pleasant surprise, one of my shares even received a "Me too! Thank goodness I have someone else I can talk to about this!" 

Sometimes the disconnect is actually in our head!

Sometimes we assume that we won't be understood, that the other person won't be able to empathise or respond in a supportive way... And that is actually a reflection of our past, not the other person.

I have had many experiences in my life where I felt worse after opening up - dismissed, preached at, misunderstood etc. 
As I have done more inner work on myself I have also found that many others could no longer relate to an aspect of me and would give advice based on their ego's limitations so it didn't feel good to open up - so there are experiences that I have mainly relied on self reflection and self soothing to process.

Being able to go within and find your own answers is a valuable tool and such a big part of healing anxious attachment and it's all about balance ~ if we don't also feel there is a safe place to verbalise our experience this is the fertile soil for an avoidant attachment style to grow 🌱

It's healthy to get to a point where we aren't placing expectations upon another person to get us in order to be happy ~ that ultimately we know how they react isn't personal. 

And the other part of being highly conscious sometimes includes to have the courage to be vulnerable and to 🧚🏻‍♂️find out🧚🏻‍♂️ if they are able to meet us in this moment ~ not placing our judgements on them based on our past. 

You might find that they are able to hear you and meet your relational needs far better than anticipated 💚✨

  • What a time to be alive! So much uncertainty with lots of space to observe odd qwerks, old habits and to uncover layers of unhealthy beliefs. What a blessing! I witness the roles I play in constellations of social relating and i’m blown away by the many illusions and delusions I so often entertain.

I have anchored an entirely new center of being and I embrace courage to express my truth and vulnerability. 

I no longer attract the same old stories that reflect the absence of my brilliance. I bask in the glory of my divinity. I celebrate my life, my beauty, my talent and freedom. Creating sacred compositions that raise the frequency of our planet. It is a blessing that I am alive and vibrating on this time-continuum.

The most powerful thing we can all do right now is reflect beauty to one another and so I sing for that to be expressed. I sing for freedom and peace. I sing for happiness & I forever sing in love. 🦋

  • The spirit of tea connects me to my culture. A culture I had long forgotten in the repressive years of childhood.

Growing up as an individual of half Vietnamese descent created a lot of separation for me in rural Australia. This would be exercised through malicious attack and through the web of normalised acts of unconscious discrimination.
Made to feel disconnected from the majority, I took to the need to detach from my culture and it’s way. I neglected my whole lineage of teachings in my most definitive years. Trying to piece together life through a disjointed lens.

It was through the visions and wisdom of my teacher plants & the practice of intentional tea drinking where I was able to return to my culture. Come together in healing. 
My nature and my connection to spirit felt as if it was just resting in dormancy, waiting to come alive.
It shared with me the way of my people, how I relate to it, how I am it, and how I have always been it. This backbone of my ancestry grounded me with a strong sense of self. A youthful spirit soaring with ancient wisdom holding me straight.

The now reflects such a different world to those younger years. I feel more connected to my ancestry than ever. When I sit with tea, I return to my family. I see so clearly where to go. My purpose- how to rise in the service of my people. How I wish to give back.

I see this as a journey that will lead me and fulfil me until the end of my days.

—

Here are some photos from a definitive return to my roots with my mother in 2018. Together we witnessed, mourned and nurtured each other through some incredible reflections of the harsher times.
Embracing the pain of the land.
Turning it into power.

  • So you say you want unconditional love.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But what are you actually available for?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you want depth, are you actually able to go deep?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you want honest, are you able to sit with uncomfortable emotions?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
How are you holding space?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s often said that you can only take another person as deep as you have been yourself.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is where we see that having faced a few demons of our own actually makes us more relatable than ‘perfect’ ever could.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you want to be ‘met’ and listened to - how are you at listening? Do you listen with your whole body, with patience - not just waiting to jump in?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Do people in your presence feel safe to be honest, inspired to be real, happy, relaxed, and ready for fun? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Now, this is not to be used to beat ourselves up. Relationships really are a co-creation. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s not all merely on you.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Yet how you show up is part of the equation - the part you have the power to change.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What are you available for?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • M E D I T A T I E

Waarom heet deze plek eigenlijk 'De Meditatietuin?' Jullie doen toch veel meer dan meditatielessen geven……? 🧐

Ja, dat klopt. Meditatie zien we dan ook niet als een activiteit die wij hier ‘doen’. Maar als de kwaliteit die we wensen in te brengen in álles wat we doen. Het bewust-zijn, aanwezig, bij alles wat is. 🙏🏻 
We verwelkomen daarbij tradities uit alle windstreken en openen onze deuren voor innerlijke ontdekkers vanuit alle hoeken van de samenleving. 

Met deze week: 

✨ Donderdag: Tantra: verken je verlangens met Sjoerd & Afke
✨ Zaterdag: Yoga & Dine met de @kundaliniyogaschool & @satnamchefs
✨ Zondag: Circle of Men - monthly gatherings
✨ Zondag: Belichaam je innerlijke God(in) met Ronald Jonker & Sifra Nooter
✨ Zondag: Mantra Journey into the Heart met @pazmantras 

Aanmelden kan via link in BIO: upcoming events.

Alle kleuren van persoonlijke ontwikkeling en gezamenlijke groei mogen hier thuiskomen. 
De opbrengsten voor de events deze week gaan volledig naar de crowdfunding #demeditatietuintotbloei. We zitten namelijk in de een-na-laaste (!) week van deze alles-of-niets campagne. Doe je ook je bijdrage? Alle informatie over de crowdfunding en upcoming events vind je via link in BIO.

    Waarom heet deze plek eigenlijk 'De Meditatietuin?' Jullie doen toch veel meer dan meditatielessen geven……? 🧐

    Ja, dat klopt. Meditatie zien we dan ook niet als een activiteit die wij hier ‘doen’. Maar als de kwaliteit die we wensen in te brengen in álles wat we doen. Het bewust-zijn, aanwezig, bij alles wat is. 🙏🏻
    We verwelkomen daarbij tradities uit alle windstreken en openen onze deuren voor innerlijke ontdekkers vanuit alle hoeken van de samenleving.

    Met deze week:

    ✨ Donderdag: Tantra: verken je verlangens met Sjoerd & Afke
    ✨ Zaterdag: Yoga & Dine met de @kundaliniyogaschool & @satnamchefs
    ✨ Zondag: Circle of Men - monthly gatherings
    ✨ Zondag: Belichaam je innerlijke God(in) met Ronald Jonker & Sifra Nooter
    ✨ Zondag: Mantra Journey into the Heart met @pazmantras

    Aanmelden kan via link in BIO: upcoming events.

    Alle kleuren van persoonlijke ontwikkeling en gezamenlijke groei mogen hier thuiskomen.
    De opbrengsten voor de events deze week gaan volledig naar de crowdfunding #demeditatietuintotbloei. We zitten namelijk in de een-na-laaste (!) week van deze alles-of-niets campagne. Doe je ook je bijdrage? Alle informatie over de crowdfunding en upcoming events vind je via link in BIO.

  • And suddenly I find myself being challenged 😱...a lot.
There’s no need to escape the discomfort...
in the midst of experiencing, I tell myself I am safe and in a moment of growth, while focussing on the belief that when I open myself to life, I have it’s strength and support on my side! 💪💃

  • We took a leap✨
.
Four months ago we said yes to the deepest union we’ve ever created thus far.
.
We thought it would be only easy but our commitment also brought fire to our paths.
.
Everything that is not in the highest of frequencies is being brought to the surface to be challenged, reshaped and transformed.
.
We have witnessed each other’s pain and each other’s inner child cry and play.
.
All that was hiding came out to be seen and felt. Setting this foundation has been our favourite art.
.
The key? Commitment and willingness to keep showing up.
.
What I’ve learned thus far...
.
Take your time to walk into new territory. Get to know the other, instead of expecting them to fit an idealized role. Allow courtship to happen. There is no rush to actualise. If your rushing and burning like passion, you maybe acting from lack mentality. Like if you don’t drink all of it now it may go away and never come to you again. Remember that love is abundant! Take your time and soak up every step. Really really be open and curious to get to see and hear this being before you beyond the stories in your mind or even the past. Allow yourselves to be surprised by life.
.

Coming to New Zealand was a leap of faith and we’ve grown so much from it.
.
I love you @steven_joseph_todd , my beloved, my king 👑 .
Ripple that magic and see you at the end of your tour! Very very soon!🦋

  • I’m feeling curious and excited about this weekend!⠀
⠀
🤔 We’re leading Authentic Relating Training and we never know exactly what to expect…⠀
⠀
Even though we have our curriculum of pillar practices and structures to teach, we never know exactly what will unfold within the group because it’s so organic. And it’s meant to be that way- there’s space built in for what’s alive to unfold and come out to be heard. ⠀
⠀
🌈 It’s a reflection of life, so we get the full spectrum of experience!⠀
⠀
Which is perfect because what this training teaches is MEANT for REAL LIFE, not just in a controlled container of some kind.⠀
⠀
We’ll probably have some tender, frustrating, profound, edgy and blissful moments and _____?!?!⠀
⠀
Sounds authentic to me.⠀
⠀
💛 All I know is that in every single Authentic Relating Training I’ve been a part of, gold shines through and I’m blown away by the transformations that I see. ⠀
⠀
I’m so grateful to be part of these epic Before and After moments, and everything in between. ⠀
⠀
Let’s see where this one goes...⠀
⠀
🎁 If you want to know more about the Authentic Relating Practices and how to use them, I’m gifting you my free Masterclass for exactly that! ✨Link in my Bio✨

  • For those who mistake openness as just being plain open for whatever you’re desiring ⁣
No. Just no.⁣
⁣
As more step deeper into their own embodiment, sensuality, and breaking through old paradigms into more levels of openness, I feel this becomes important to say.⁣
⁣
Someone being more open, explorative or sensual does NOT mean they’re down for whatever⁣
⁣
Just because them owning their sensuality May turn you on, does not mean they want to be sexual with whoever interacts⁣
⁣
Does NOT mean they have less boundaries ⁣
⁣
In fact, the more open I’ve become within myself, the more boundaries and no’s I’ve stepped into. ⁣
⁣
And pushing on their boundaries when they’ve said they’re feeling tender and vulnerable, because you “perceived they’d be into that” because they’re an open person, just makes you an ass ⁣
⁣
My openness and sensuality I embody is for me - don’t let my playful nature deceive you.⁣
This is for me, and I share it to empower others ⁣
⁣
The decisions I make are on my terms and for my own pleasure and alignment, not to please you. ⁣
⁣
For those who think that someone who’s open and sensual = their easy, think again. 👋

  • What a time to be alive! So much uncertainty with lots of space to observe odd qwerks, old habits and to uncover layers of unhealthy beliefs. What a blessing! I witness the roles I play in constellations of social relating and i’m blown away by the many illusions and delusions I so often entertain.

I have anchored an entirely new center of being and I embrace courage to express my truth and vulnerability. 

I no longer attract the same old stories that reflect the absence of my brilliance. I bask in the glory of my divinity. I celebrate my life, my beauty, my talent and freedom. Creating sacred compositions that raise the frequency of our planet. It is a blessing that I am alive and vibrating on this time-continuum.

The most powerful thing we can all do right now is reflect beauty to one another and so I sing for that to be expressed. I sing for freedom and peace. I sing for happiness & I forever sing in love. 🦋

  • I leave my eyes open,
Become one with the experience.
I find the creaks for the quiet. 
The space amongst it. 
I find it in the natural rhythms,
The ebs and flows of the room.
I feel grounded in it.
Because I am it.
I am the stillness in the hurricane.

  • About five years ago, I went to a yoga class that I’ll never forget where we internally repeated a phrase that has been an invaluable tool in my mindfulness journey.

The phrase is, “I am not my mind—I am that which observes my mind thinking.” Simple. Effective. Not in my awareness for the first 25 years of my life.  Having this belief and practice allows me the separation from my thoughts and my emotions so that I don’t get swallowed up with them.

Sure, it still happens on the reg (I’m human after all!), but it’s so much easier to feel and process emotions and thoughts that I think are not helpful or just icky to have.

In yoga, we call it a monkey mind.  A mind that swings from thought to thought, distracted and haphazard.  And then comes the “puppy mind” 😉 As the out of control monkey mind blazes its trail, there’s something left behind — which is… the puppy poo.

Example: Monkey mind says ⇢  the outfit you picked is stupid and doesn’t look good and people are going to think that you are trying too hard.  Resulting puppy 💩 ⇢ you are running late, you snap at your partner, and your road rage is extra on fire.

Alternative:  Notice that those negative thoughts are just stories that your monkey mind is making up.  People most likely won’t notice or care what you’re wearing, and even if they do, what’s it matter?! So instead, you could notice those thoughts, find some amusement in how silly us humans are, and get on with your morning per usual.  Get it?

So check yoself.  Consistent reminders of, “I am not my mind, I am that which observes my mind thinking.” This applies to judgements we make of ourselves and others, feelings of jealously, desire to harm, etc.  Pain is inevitable.  But with awareness, suffering is optional.

  • Social anxiety used to be my norm.

I have many memories of leaving my house, getting in my car, driving somewhere and feeling like I had to fight off a panic attack my whole way there.

This began in high school, so I started drinking to soften the edge and this continued for the next 11 years. When I quit drinking nearly 8 years ago, the SA came creeping back in even stronger.

A couple of years after I quit, I spent 3 years living alone to essentially dig myself out of myself. That was the most time alone I had ever had.

It was beautiful, terrifying, heart breaking/opening and spacious enough for all parts of me to be seen.

The only thing I would really leave my house for was for the grocery store, and to play shows (and maybe visit a friend or two once a month).

In fact, I was in such hermit mode that my sister teases me that whenever she came over to visit, I would suddenly start vacuuming or sweeping. Probably because I just didn’t know how to be around people. Actually, it’s true… I did not know how to be around people unless it was a gathering about me, specifically playing shows - because, tbh, I love attention and always have.

Anxiety used to have a strong hold on me and my everyday life and now it doesn’t - due to so much dedication to tools on my internal soul journey.

I was joking with myself earlier that if this whole social isolation thing would have happened a few years ago while I was in my monk phase, not much would have had to change in my world.

Over the past few years, I have grown to value community on such a deep soul level.

Going from never wanting to be around anyone to absolutely NEEDING community in my life is a miracle.

There were MANY times when I thought that my entire life would feel that isolated. And you know what? That season passed.

Now it is just greatest honor to guide others back home to themselves and finally break free from that suffering.

You are not alone. You’re invited to come plug into Source with us.
