The word "relationship" is comprised of just four syllables, and yet there is so much packed into each one of them
and with every thought that goes unexamined
with every emotional pattern that is unconsciously perpetuated
our energy says
make me happy
give me purpose
tell me that i am lovable
not because it feels good
but because i want so badly to believe that it's true
but if used as a mirror
the word "relationship", though comprised of just four syllables, can be so much more
than a shoulder to cry on
a hand to hold
or a partner to move through life with
if used consciously, this intimate container can be used to increase your awareness
deepen your healing
and skyrocket you into elevated levels of consciousness
but only if you let it
tell me 👇🏼👇🏼
is your relationship a reflection of what life has caused you to become? or is it a reflection of who you are choosing to be?

Trigger alert ⚠️
whatever you think healing looks like... it’s not that
it’s not a yoga retreat in bali
a journal full of affirmations
or a full moon ceremony
no, the magic of healing exists within the activation of your deepest wounds
it’s your biggest fears knocking at your door
and coming true
it’s falling in love with a man who will never love you
and learning to love yourself
it’s being triggered on the deepest level
and finally choosing peace
it’s feeling all the things
healing is life tossing your entire world into the washing machine
so that you can come out the other side
tell me in the comments— do you use pain as a catalyst for your personal healing?💓
#creativejournaling some of you are gonna wanna be really practical and say “a doctor, a marine biologist, a boatsmith”... but dig deeper. this is about identifying and defining strong, steady relationships:
1. 👉🏾do i have 7 people in my life right now that i could spend my boat life with?
2. 👉🏾who do i have meaningful relationships with in my life and for how long have we been connected?
3. 👉🏾would i be able to keep the vibe steady on the boat or would i be ready to throw some people overboard? and what does my answer to the question say about my present relationships or lack thereof? am i in toxic patterns?
4. 👉🏾would the 7 get along with each other?
5. 👉🏾what people in my life do i value enough and trust enough to share my days with on a boat for life?
6. 👉🏾what would need to happen for me to live well with the people i have chosen?
7. 👉🏾💯👉🏾👉🏾how sure are you that the people you’ve chosen for your boat would choose you?🤷🏾♀️ #truefeelings •

#selfdiscovery#selflove#selfcare we gain knowledge for the outside world while there is more within us which is only for us
so be knowledgeable for yourself too❤❤😍
Do you feel like this? or have you ever felt like this?
feelings of emptiness and worthlessness are soul destroying. dark times and empty hearts can do a lot to a person on the inside that nobody else can see. -
💔 do you have a tendency to go inwards, isolate yourself and carry the heavy burden of feeling like nothing all by yourself? -
💔 do you feel like you are on your own in this world .... not physically alone but emotionally alone?
💔 do you feel like no one sees or hears your pain and suffering ?
💔 are you carrying the heavy crushing burden of feeling like nothing and no one?
💔 have you ever asked “how can nothing feel so heavy?”
the answer is this. it’s because feeling like nothing isnt nothing!! it’s a space filled with feelings of self doubt, self loathing, shame, hurt, low self esteem, sadness, despair, sadness, rejection, failure and suffering. the list goes on. -
these feelings distort our view of ourselves to the point where we dont see or recognise ourselves anymore and can’t hear ourselves speak because the mind is so busy fighting and trying to hide from these sore and difficult feelings
these need to be healed and unloaded. what doesn’t belong to you needs to be let go of, so the real you can be heard, felt and seen
don’t do it alone. if you can hear yourself in this, then reach out and get in touch today to arrange your free first steps life coaching session on your journey towards being someone, someone you know is always in there underneath the heavy shadow of nothing ❤️
I named my podcast make it sacred because i truly believe there are blessings in every experience if we chose to find them. life can be difficult, and for some people it’s okay to just let the difficulties pass and continue life as usual. for me, i use them as an opportunity to bring me closer to who i am and what’s most important to me. it makes me a better person, friend, family member, and physician. it gives the hard times a purpose. it gives a reason for me to continue my own healing and allows me to continue to holding space for others to heal in an even deeper and more authentic way. feeling extra grateful today. 🖤
gratitude list: this sweet face, being able to eat full meals, nature walks, spending time with family during my break, full patient schedules, entertaining podcasts, my breath, feelings of peace and rest in my body, nourishment, chinese herbs, hot tea, cozy sweat pant, and christmas movies.
Suffering from sleepless nights?
have you tried melatonin? 🤔
melatonin is a powerful sleep aid and is registered as a drug for that purpose. 😴
melatonin helps protect neurons by reducing the damage caused by amyloid proteins and tau proteins linked to alzheimer’s disease. melatonin protects against the harmful effects of aluminum. and melatonin scavenges free radicals of oxygen and nitrogen, neutralizes other toxic radicals, stimulates gene expression of other antioxidants, and protects atp synthesis.
melatonin modulates dopamine production and pathways in areas of your brain involved in movement disorders such as parkinson’s disease and tardive dyskinesia. melatonin also interacts with dopamine’s role to your body’s biological clock.
try it for yourselves and tag a friend who needs to try this ⬇️👇🏽⬇️👇🏽

I did it!!!!! dumb late but i did it!!! all 31 pieces for inktober complete! so what that huevember started already? i finished for once!! i’m glad i’m done. this round of inktober, i wasn’t as violent as years past on myself. i’m relived and proud lol. i learned a lot about myself than i did about actually inking, which i’m all for. sure i want the skills but self learning is important.
You wish you could just wake up tomorrow and poof you’ve got it all figured out and you’re slaying the single life, or life in general!
self-love, boundaries, confidence, life goals, self-care... it’s all so overwhelming.
after both of the significant relationships in my past ended, i felt hurt, confused, & overwhelmed.
but i found that only i had the power to turn things around, and although it took me a while, that is exactly what i did.
i learned how to have badass boundaries.
i learned how to spot red flags within minutes.
i dated causally without getting attached until i was ready for something serious💃🏼
i developed confidence in myself that can’t be rocked.
i learned how to deal with the loneliness.
and because of laying and continuing to build that foundation. i’ve been able to:
run 6 half marathons and compete in 7 spartan races🏃🏼♀️
complete 2 masters degrees👩🏼🎓
start my own business👩🏼💻
travel to 12 countries.
i met my boyfriend/best friend/adventure partner after i finally learned who i was and what i truly wanted in a partner and in my life💑
i am not bragging. i am showing you what’s possible and that 𝐚𝐥𝐥 𝐨𝐟 𝐘𝐎𝐔𝐑 𝐝𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐦𝐬 𝐚𝐫𝐞 𝐩𝐨𝐬𝐬𝐢𝐛𝐥𝐞 𝐭𝐨𝐨.
i am just a girl from the midwest who grew up with a single mom making a little more than minimum wage and living in low income housing.
i am just a girl who fell into the wrong crowd and started drinking at age 13.
i am just a girl who struggled with an eating disorder until i learned to love and respect my body.
i am just a girl who was lied to, manipulated, and cheated on by my ex husband.
i am now a woman who will never settle for less than an extraordinary life.

••a person of many••
i've reinvented myself many times. at one point i was a dirt bike competitor, a chicken lady, a gardener, vegan, musician, preschool teacher, clean freak...wait, i'm still that one. anyways, i've labeled myself alot of things, but the one that i've been most proud of is this beauty of a garden i grew myself a little over a year ago. 🌱anyone else a dreamer? i feel like i'm a pro at it. one day i dream of owning property to fulfill my gardening dreams, while living in a minimalist a-frame home in the middle of the woods. one day. 🌲
Nov 13/19 day 55. busy wednesday!!!! still content. my mind is so clear, decisions are so easy now, with clarity and the fog gone, even hard decisions...though hard to make, can still be done. i know the path i am on.
the 3 fingers is for the countdown, 3 days til i am off on a roadtrip... never thought id be excited to say...i'm going to regina!!!!! trust instinct. trust gut decisions. its ok to lead with your heart if your instinct is clear. #selfdiscovery#365project#learntolovemyself#followintuition
the next topics i will be analyzing are moon placements and the 4th house cusp.
in western astrology, your moon sign represents your inner child, emotional and psychological tendencies, emotional needs and wants, and your perception of your mother.
the house your moon sign is placed in describes what you find soothing, comforting, and nurturing. it also describes the unique and personalized ways you nurture yourself.
aspects to your moon, tells the story of the type of mothering you received as a child and the dynamics and themes in the relationship you have with your mother. aspects to the moon also reveal your attachment style to your mother figure, friends, and romantic partners.
the sign on your 4th house cusp describes the overall themes in your external environments in your childhood.
through this comprehensive analysis of moon placements and the 4th house cusp we will be exploring your psychological and emotional foundation through an astrological lens.
since my analyses aligns with some of the psychological research of jasmine cori, at the end of the series i will be doing a raffle and giving away a copy of the emotionally absent mother (second edition) by jasmine cori with my some of my personal notes written in the book.
the emotionally absent mother is one of my favorite self help books. i think of it as one of the holy grails of inner child work
as with all of my astrological analyses and interpretations, it is my intent to provide you insight and self knowledge that aids you in your journey of recovery or self healing.
i will not be doing in depth analyses and interpretations, since instagram is not the proper social media for that lol.
:: self care mini break :: self care mini breaks are a must for me at the moment.
managing my energy levels and listening to my body has never come easily to me.
so now i track them in my @saintbelford daily habit tracker and make sure i am really present for these self care breaks. not just taking pretty pics for insta 🤣
twice a day i stop, tune in to my mind, energy and body and ask what she needs.
then i turn off all distractions and be really present with the practice.
it’s that simple.
all we need to do is be present with what we’re doing and stay mindful about being in this moment.
it’s definitely a practice and many a time attention is pulled away.
but i acknowledge it and simply return my focus back to my practice.
You are in the right place, right now where you are. not too slow, not too fast. just where you should be. if it's a struggle, it's a season of preparation. if it's dark, it's a season of patience. if it's scary, it's a season of bravery. but, you can always find comfort with the light inside you. that little soul of love inside. be gentle with you first :)
The light tickles
the water giggles
i found a piece of myself there
the star burned me
the water healed me
i found a piece of myself there
my heart broke me
my heart repaired me
i had my pieces
smiling. and meaning it. i feel that spark.
In the past ten years, i’ve learned the hard way that i gotta to do what i gotta do to make sure i am well.
this week i made sure to rest, reset and recharge by

wellness is as much physical as it is mental and spiritual. it does not have to cost money to take a moment for yourself but you have to make it a priority.
♡ trust your gut.
♡ listen to your body.
♡ make yourself a priority.
♡ protect your energy.
no one else will.
so take the time to embrace your journey and keep pushing towards your own growth. ✨🙏🏼

About a little over a month ago i fell in love. hard + fast. what? me?? the girl who swore she was not going to be with anyone for a long time until she’s healed and ready. yes, and that’s still true. i’m committed to my recovery.
but this man - that fits so much of my previous post, so sweet, so caring, wise, fun, extremely talented, whose values align with mine, who can make me melt just thinking about the way he touched me, how intimacy had never been more amazing and connected. and how i never craved that more from anyone because it’s beyond words. magical. he loves my hands, my feet. feel like i’ve known him for lifetimes. he can see my soul. my pureness. my worth. no guy has ever been able to. he appreciates my existence. and it’s a knowing and feeling that he does. that is without question.
i pulled away. did everything in my power to not fall in love, to not lose sight of my commitment, to not lose sight of me. but that didn’t really work.
i didn’t want to end up back there - a place of familiarity of craving love, craving attention, worry. wow, i sure love the word crave. so fear came knocking. scared, uncertain, questioning, instead of just enjoying. because timing is everything, right?
i asked myself. why now? why so many signs pointing to the one direction? am i blinded again because of healing from trauma? what do i do? where do i turn? what questions do i ask? what do i pray for? why are we so connected in unbelievable ways? is this a test from god. because i’m fkn sick of them to tell you the truth. miss “i love learning and opportunity for self-discovery, let’s see the lesson in everything” is fkn sick of the tests. yep. exhausted. tired of questions. just want to flow. so smooth. without restraints. free.
for the first time in my life, i ran.
who knows. i don’t. god does.
life is wild, i’m wild about it.

I'm back! ready to connect and share what i've been up to....ready to be seen again.
i had to slow things way down and take some time away. time to meditate, heal, and do some serious soul searching along the way.
i'm feeling renewed and excited by where this journey is headed!
i'm also soooo thankful that i am now able to find beauty even in the moments that feel extremely uncomfortable...and there have been many this year. anyone else feel me on that one? 😉
i'm avail for vocal coaching sessions again! if you are interested in throat opening techniques that also soothe the nervous system and your soul, dm me or comment below to set up a time to chat about a #vocalflow session.
skype or whats app sessions available. feel free to pass along my name to any one you feel could benefit with working with me...no matter where they are located ☺️ 🙏✨

The truth is...
self discovery isin’t all sunshine and rainbows and positive vibes.
it can get ugly and confusing. it can get right down gritty and hard.
confronting yourself is difficult sometimes, it’s difficult to be the person that does things differently and who doesn’t just settle.
but, it’s truly the greatest gift you can give to yourself. it will push you to dig deep to find what your true version of happy looks like.
when you start to stretch and reach and grow for you, on your terms everything changes.
you become the person you always wanted to be instead of the person someone told you to be.
that my friends is a beautiful thing.
so do the “ish” yo-self and be d**n proud because you did it on your terms.
find you...find your happy!
Everything starts with a beginning or a tank top.... it still amazes me that tying an old tank top on my head for a run one morning, was the catapult to a path i never considered before. a tank top became a waeband that became a wellness studio called find your wae.
so many have asked me, “how did i know?” truth is...i didn’t know where i was headed yet i felt more alive than i ever had before. i was excited to focus on something that came from my heart. i tuned into god, universe, spirit instead of my head! i call it the knowing place. i was lead to the teachers, mentors, books and courses that brought me to today. (some of them literally fell into my lap!) i can help you get to that knowing place. be a student in each day and let your higher power guide you. turn up the volume in your heart, it whispers guys and your mind is so much louder. so you gotta tap in and meditate. pay attention to the things you are shown, the songs you hear, the numbers you see.
it’s never too late to become what you never thought you could. it’s never too late to do what you never thought you would. it’s never too late to open your heart and your hands and embrace a new beginning! we are eternal beings that have an opportunity to make a difference while we are here...learn more about you...find your wae🙏🏻
Kindness. a universal language.
what does that mean to you?
what does it mean when you think of being kind to yourself. are you kind to yourself? in what ways yes? in what ways not?
make a list of things you can do to be kinder to yourself.
think of someone you are not kind to. how can you invite more kindness towards them?

Something has brought us all here, to the practice of yoga, searching for deeper meaning, for more happiness, for more peace, better help, better understanding of self. although, many people wander into their first yoga class with no idea that yoga is more than the physical postures, yoga or any spiritual path is ultimately the search for something more. our lives begin to change, we find inner joy, and suddenly we feel at home in our own body. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

You are the one you’re been waiting for.
it’s so easy to forget about yourself. to put everything and everyone ahead of you. but at the end of the day, you’re the one who’s living your life, no one else can live it for you.
keep coming back to yourself.
what do you need?
what are you running from?
what can you do for yourself right now to make this human experience easier?
check in with yourself. 💕
you’re worth it. 💫
As painful as heartache can be
falling in love is still the most
some people come into our lives simply to shake things up and to teach us something new about ourselves. ✨💗

On december 31, 2016, this girl stepped off an airplane in nyc for the first time ever.
she had dreamed of new york all her life.
she never imagined actually being there, in the middle of a crowded city, buildings taller than she had ever seen.
she grew up watching the famous ball drop in times square and made a promise to herself to visit one day.
that day was magical. as the crowds gathered and music played, there was an indescribable feeling in the air.
stumbling upon vip tickets on accident, standing amongst the crowd of people from all over the world, inflatable sticks waving in the air, there isn’t a word for the feeling she felt.
as countdown began, happy tears flooded her eyes. i guess that’s what happens when dreams actually come true.
the celebration, the cheering, the dancing, the confetti... it was a moment she’d never forget. a moment where she was literally saying goodbye to the hardest year of her life and welcoming a brand new year to come.
magically nyc erased some of the pain she had been carrying. it brought her back to life. she found herself again in the city that never sleeps.
