jeff brown // resonance


i've really enjoyed connecting w/ jeff brown's fb page ~  

and here is some writing from him that i love today:

"Being a sensitive person can be a confusing, complicated thing in this still harsh world. It feels intuitively right to open, to feel, to enhearten our daily life, but the world is still vibrating at a more armored and edgy place. It is not yet attuned to the ways of the open heart. So what to do? We don't want to deaden our capacity to feel, but if we feel too much, we get run over by an often heartless world. I have found my best answer in three places: (1) Selective Attachment; that is- carefully discerning between positive and negative individuals and environments, and only attaching to those people and places that can hold our tender heart safe; (2) Strong energetic boundaries; that is- being physically and emotionally charged, so that we can more effectively repel unwelcome energies; (3) Conscious Armoring; that is- learning how to put on armor when necessary to manage the world and difficult situations, and, consciously removing it when it is no longer needed. If we cultivate these practices, we stand a much better chance of preserving our sensitivity. Once we lose it, we lose our connection to the moment altogether. Here's to a sensitive way of being! What a courageous path."

empathy validation


"Highly sensitive people are too often perceived as weaklings or damaged goods. To feel intensely is not a symptom of weakness, it is the trademark of the truly alive and compassionate. It is not the empath who is broken, it is society that has become dysfunctional and emotionally disabled. There is no shame in expressing your authentic feelings. Those who are at times described as being a 'hot mess' or having 'too many issues' are the very fabric of what keeps the dream alive for a more caring, humane world. Never be ashamed to let your tears shine a light in this world."

sacred purpose

 
these words from jeff brown are pertinent ~ 
i wanted to share them.

"You are Sacred Purpose.

AND ... It doesn’t matter what anyone tells you about who you are. There is so much of that. This is your journey. Even those with the best of intentions, cannot know the path you are here to walk. The REAL journey is not one of adapting ourselves to someone else's vision, but instead, shaping who we are with our own two hands. ... it’s a personal decision, and it doesn’t have to be grandiose. Your purpose can be as simple as learning how to listen better, how to enjoy the moment without getting in your own way ... wherever the growing is, wherever you find genuine peace with your path, wherever you feel unmasked and genuinely real ... we are at the beginning of a new way, a way of being that is sourced in who we REALLY ARE, not our egoic face, not our survivalist face, not the false face of our hidden power, but the real face, the real path, the no bullshit-no hype-no pretense expression of WHO u REALLY ARE ... Your sacred purpose may be covered in dust, it may be HIDDEN FROM VIEW, but its still in there, sparkling with infinite possibility ..."

i like this writing for many reasons. namely, it makes me giggle, b/c i've been chanting to myself the last two days, "no more dust." love, k *

numerology ~ personal reference

giggling @ the pertinence of these points! 
(( ... reviewing my numerology ... ))


"However, as you are such an individualist, this insistence on listening to your hunches often make you appear irrational or even insane to others, that is, until the direction of your gut instincts pays off and all benefit." ... and, "Of all the numbers, you are the one that values individuality, privacy and ethics more than anything." ... and, "You are a master number, which means that you are more concerned with ideals and ethics, rather than practical or materialistic issues. Your preoccupation with the divine can sometimes make you appear a bit bizarre or spacey to others." ... and, "As an adult your probably still spend a great deal of time alone in the world of your incredible imagination." and ... "You are also graced with an astounding amount of courage. Like water you have the ability to wear down obstacles like water in a stream wears down a rock over a long period of time. Although you may appear unpredictable or unreliable to others you are actually a very complex individual who often harbors a clear vision of who they want to be and how they want to live in the future."

i've been working hard to assert these realities w/ others who wanna be my pal, lol! here's to less critiquing of each other and much more loving, acceptance, and forgiveness. put your brain to the side for just a moment, and feel from the inside out. :) #hearttalk

p.s. hit me up if you'd like a link 4 your own mini-numerology reading.

60*day re-set


ryan leier, cool yoga leader, gave a talk @ myyogaonline.com months ago that simply stated: 40 days. 40 days is the amount of time it takes to re-set something within and for yourself ~ cellularly, in your brain, in your spirit, in your heart. 

in honor of this concept, tomorrow, the first full day after the supermoon (which arrives this evening!) i will participate in a kind, loving, lighthearted 60*day re-set for myself. the language that comes forth in honor of this re-set is: 

* i'm taking over! i am in charge! don't push me around.
* mantra 1: i trust myself, i trust myself, i trust myself
* mantra 2: i am grounded, i am balanced, i am calm
* mantra 3: i am divinely guided, i am divinely protected
* mantra 4: i value ease, i value simplicity, i give thanks
((repeat dat shit 108x (plus some!) w/ mala beads!)) 

my 60*day re-set is in place to coax (within and outside of myself) lifted levels of confidence and a re-vamped setting for my body, mind, spirit, and emotional realm ~ it is time to move into a more empowered place in my life, $$.

i am soooo excited to have the following "daily jam" to tend to in these 60*days of re-set (and for the rest of time as part of my creative practice!) i have wanted to establish "dailiness" with myself for some time, and ...

the time is the time is the time is now!

kelly's daily-jam (ignited on 9.9.14 // 60*day re-set)

* empath shield
* yoga
* meditate
* exercise
* booty
* create
* sex
* laugh
* play
* dance

alas, my interactions w/ this "daily-jam" are personal, non-personal, mutable, and can be entirely self-propelled, winkwink, though loving soulmates can collaborate where possible, ahem. 

additionally, let it be known that while i am a person of much self-study and self-healing, this re-set extends beyond "the self." i believe that i will be a better friend, lover, and collaborator as this experiment expands ~ def part of the reason i am going for it. #giveback

* be a better grrrrrrlllll to all
* reel it in, train dat brain
* soften dat heart, blow some bubblez!

so, in 60 days, on 11.7.14, i will report back about my experiences. i chose 60 days vs. 40, b/c i simply believe i need more. xoxoxo ~

love,

k *
