As with most things in life, therapy takes work AND has its ups and downs. When a client and I start diving deep and unlocking boxes, I let them know 3 things: 1️⃣ I'm here for whatever comes up, 2️⃣ there may be a time (or more) that you leave our session and you don't feel better AND that's ok, and 3️⃣ you can 100% take a break whenever you need to. ✔️✔️✔️ Noticing, challenging, and owning current behaviors, habits, and ways of thinking can stir up things in your brain and your body. 🧠🤸🏽♀️ Sometimes that gets uncomfortable, but getting to know what's under the surface and greeting that with radical acceptance and compassion can totally transform your way of being. 🧘🏽♀️ And if it ever feels like too much too fast, find ways to connect, nurture, and soothe yourself so you can jump back in whenever YOU are ready. 🌊 | 🎨: @lindsaybraman #olawellness #therapy #therapist #counseling #atx #austin #mentalhealth #mentalhealthmatters #resilience #acceptance #change

Find the exact spot in your body where the emotions are hiding. Once you find them, you start to realize, that who you truly are goes far beyond your thought and emotions.

This is something that I have been working on for a while now. I go through these phases of loving and hating myself, as I’m sure we all do, but something important that I have been working on is instead of trapping myself in negative thoughts and doubting everything thus causing myself inner chaos- I have chosen to use my creativity in other ways. Instead I choose to write for myself, write on my blog, paint, listen to music, etc. This is how I choose to free my mind. It’s time to remember that I am a soul in a human body having an experience in this world filled with love and acceptance. I’ve forgotten who I am for a while but I am ready to change that and be true to myself again. Thanks to the people who always stand by my side and the ones who know me better than I know myself 💗 I know with amazing people in my life I can only ever become more and more amazing. .

I didn’t just shave my hair off.
Instead I went through a huge process and one where I recognise both growth and shave as part of that one transformative process. This has been a rite of passage. It is of course all one process. We are process.
Friday night I dreamt of our life in Ibiza. I dreamt of a retreat space on the beach. A place to live, coach and build on community. In a strange twist I visited a new dream where I am presented with a set of clippers and a mirror and proceed to shave my hair off.
The dream of the clippers running over my scalp was so potent that I woke at 4am Saturday morning and could think of nothing else, but removing my hair.
Yesterday I micro dosed and processed my dream which resulted in a profound conclusion.
In shaving my head I said goodbye to the dream of island life and recognised it as some kind of spell where I had grown my hippie hair as part of the island dream. In the dream I had to come to terms with and accepted that in order to sustain our Ibiza lifestyle I had already said goodbye to my hair. My hair was thinning and my scalp was already exposed. The realisation came that I was losing my hair from what I now see as the self induced stress of trying to fulfil the dream that never quite aligned with my dreamt up expectation. .
By shaving my hair off and with the Ibiza spell lifted I finally said goodbye to My pseudo Bohemia. The shave is part of the acceptance, and the man bun was part of the justification and sacrificial denial of truth.
My hair now represents freedom, truth and acceptance. Here’s to growth.

Happy Monday ✨ It’s a good day to work work work. A gentle reminder to take care of yourself while you take over the world. Remember that your mental health matters too. Sometimes life can get hectic, stressful and we allow things to get in the way of our emotional stability.
Today, I’m sharing 15 Engaging Questions to Ask Yourself from With Love, Steph (link in bio) 🌸 To help you get to the root of your emotions and maybe along the way you will discover things you didn’t know before.
How do you practice self-care? 🌹
"Cause I don't want to cover up anymore. Not my face,not my mind,not my soul,not my thoughts, not my dreams, not my struggles, not my emotional growth. Nothing." Love this quote. Honestly I have always struggled with bad skin, it's easy to hide it under makeup but you still feel so insecure. Since not caring and stressing about others comments and loving who I am my skin has actually started to clear 😂 I still wear makeup but more to enhance my natural beauty and because I want to 🤷🏼♀️many of us hide who we really are because of the judgement of others. You can hide your face with makeup but you can't hide an ugly personality. True beauty is being yourself and not waiting for others to accept you, you need to accept yourself. I always like to make people feel good about themselves and push them to do the things they want in life. Kind words can really make a big difference to someones confidence😊 #natural #naturalmakeup #nomakeup #loveyourselfquotes #beauty #beautiful #confidenceissexy #selfconfidencequotes #kindness #beyourselfalways #loveyou
This day is about going back and facing all the pent up emotions. It is okay to carry the pain and feel it to your bone. As it makes you realize that as one door closes, the next one opens.
I had one of the best memories in this place. In a foreign country, amidst people I hardly knew. The memories will always remain and thus, I shall remember.

Here is a line from A Course in Miracles that totally swipes the rug out from under our judgmental ego’s feet: “The analysis of ego motivation is never without your own ego involvement.” In other words, when we try to understand why a person behaves the way they do, we are looking at them with our own ego. No matter how well-intentioned we are. It is impossible to analyze anyone without first having chosen our ego as judge and jury.
But there is a way that we can see others with proper clarity. And that’s by letting go of the ego as our teacher and choosing a different guide - the right mind of the Holy Spirit. When we do that, these beautiful lines from the Course light our path of understanding: “Every loving thought is true. Everything else is an appeal for healing and help, regardless of the form it takes.”
No matter what someone says or does, it is either an expression of love or an appeal for help. Regardless of the form it takes! The Course goes on to ask, “Can anyone be justified in responding with anger to a brother’s plea for help?”
Any time we’re tempted to feel anger, resentment, or fear we can recognize that we are judging the situation with our ego. And our inner judge rules, “Guilty!” But we can make a different choice and see everything through the loving eyes of spirit. Peace is the immediate outcome.

Nothing can thrive in negative environments. Are you being critical or harsh with yourself on days when love, patience & compassion would be far more beneficial? #selflove #compassion #positivevibes
I started the day with water, a pear and a wholewheat pancake with crunchy peanut butter and maple syrup on top. I ate this almost immediatly after going out of bed, because it felt ‘right’. I felt good afterwards, but it also made me think about ‘eating when hungry’ or because of another reason. Back in the days when I was stuck in dietculture land and in my eating disorder I thought that eating when not being hungry was the biggest crime. I confinced myself that you should only be eating when your body really asks for it. I waited for as long as possible to eat, I didn’t understand other people when they were just eating out of pleasure, comfort or habit. I missed out on a lot, but I thought I was the one doing great. I thought it is was so important to live this ‘healthy lifestyle’ that I brainwashed myself by only following people who ate like me, read about eating as clean as possible, when to eat, etc. I was stuck in eating disorder for about 6 years. And until the moment I let go of everything I once believed in, the eating disorder rules and voices disappeared. In recovery extreme hunger hit me. Long story short; I ate when I felt like, regardless whether I was really hungry or not. This might sounds strange to people because of the dietculture we live in, but I personally think that this is the way to foodfreedom and true health. To no longer question yourself, to accept that you (probably) first need to go through a period of overeating to become in touch with your inner signals again. And I mean the inner signals that aren’t influenced by dietculture beliefs. To break all the dietculture rules. To no longer feel ‘good’ or ‘bad’ because of choices you make, etc. To everyone who is trying to break out of disordered eating and finds themselves eating all the time, regardlessly whether you are hungry or not, I hope you can be kind to yourself and trust this process. Over time, food will lose it’s power over you and everything will balance out. The way is through. ✨
Do you question yourself in eating? 🧡
