Without our shadow we have no depth... Have you ever danced with your shadow? Turned down the lights, lit a bounty of candles, and played those lyrical licked tunes on your stereo? No?
It's pure beauty. A pure return to innocence. Fascination. Tenderness. Curiousity. And wonder.
We run from our shadows don't we? We run, and cower, and quake. We fear what we think we will meet if we turned towards, not away, from them.
Oh my loves. Cease the running away. Turn to and dance with your darkness, your very own 3D making, deep welt marking, beasts.
They mean you no harm but, you see, they throw a little shade, a little tantrum, each and every time we deny them their place.
There are just 2 places left for this Sunday's 'Shadow Gifted Soulboard Crafting workshop'. We will dance with, both literally and metaphorically, our shadows, and from this intimacy we will create our own vision board, a soul board, to map our way into and through the dark months of the cyclical year.
No experience necessary. All welcome. This will be potent and epic my loves 💜

Send love to your deepest fears, insecurities, guilt. Acknowledge them, honor them, be thankful to them, and dance with them. The more you see, dance and love your Shadow, your Light Keeper, more radiant Light will be released from Her. Don’t pretend She doesn’t exist. She needs you to be brave, curious and compassionate to explore this deep journey with Her. And once you are in this journey, you will become to have a taste of your true enlightened self. 💫❤️💃🏼💕
With love, Patricia

Dance with your shadows.
They are as much part of who you are then any other part of you.
Learn to embrace your shadow. You can transform its energy and let it empower you.
I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to gather tonight at @yogaboundforlife
7-9pm. Alexandra @filaments_of_light
and I cordially invite you to Lunar Rhythm. We come together in the spirit of sisterhood to embody our prayers and to move with the rhythms and tides of nature. The energy of this eclipse is helping us awaken through our dreams, bringing forth the subconscious so that we can explore it, observe it, feel it and offer it to the light of transformation. The narratives are changing, we are no longer encouraged to play out old melodramas. This is a time for renewal, a time to remember that we are the fellowship of people who are choosing to follow the thread of light that weaves all life together into a seamless tapestry that reveals the infinite love available regardless of our limiting thoughts. Ritual creates the space for transformation and no effort goes unnoticed so come as you are, bring a water bottle and comfortable clothing.

Today is the Dark Moon - a good time to go within and face your shadow, face what you fear and repress most, that part of you that your parents, siblings, family, friends, society and culture deemed to be unacceptable.
The wholeness you so crave cannot be found on the outside in another person, you can only find it within, in the shadows, lead by your fears. Take your time and explore this place within yourself, this underworld, this dark part.
Here you will find what you have been looking for, even though it probably is much different to what you thought you would find. Embrace whatever you find here, love it deeply, as it will bring you healing and peace.
Black Moonstone is protective as well as encouraging and helps in recalling forgotten memories while lending strength to dive into your own shadows. It supports you in discerning what you remember as well as accepting what you feel in that process.
White Angelica Essential Oil releases feelings of shame, guilt, rejection and weakness and makes you feel safe and protected while you follow your fear into your underworld within. It comforts you and helps you understand, embrace and love your missing part.

Completion 💫 🌝. .
That’s the first word that popped in my head this morning. I’m not exactly sure what it “means” yet, but I know it’s bringing with it a sense of relief. I did some deep work with this full moon illumination & I’ve BEEN doing such deep work! This year has already BEEN FULL ON 🌋& in the chaos & full power anxious energy that seems to be floating around, I feel the most grounded, centered and calm I’ve ever felt. I still feel a bit blinded about what the future has in store, but my attitude has shifted. I’m in FULL trust for what’s to come. I know it’s all happening, & it feels good to be taking a comfortable and content seat in my own BEing as it all unfolds (the Queen has been returned to her throne 👑🙏⭐️hallelujah). .
I’ve also been oddly finding comfort with the mantra “nothing is as it seems” & letting the magic fill my cup to the point I’m overflowing with the love and gratitude. It sounds cliche, but it’s also never felt more true: we want change, we MUST BE it... LIVE it, BREATHE it, LOVE it, GIVE & RECEIVE it❤️❤️❤️. .

Dance, become friends.
Enjoy your shadows.
Time is now.
How interesting that our shadow, the deepest darkest space we hold as beings on earth, is accentuated and intensified in the brightest light. We can take ourselves out of the picture, and the shadow is gone. In the cloudy, foggy days the shadow is barely visible. --
Yesterday, I returned to a class called #Qoya
It is a dance that helps us to remember our true nature of being wise, wild, and free. The “shadow dance” is just one song in each class that allows you to feel that shadow. The first time I attended Qoya, I went right to it and felt lost in all kinds of emotion that I didn’t want. The second time I went, my internal walls went up, and I resisted the invitation to feel the shadow all together. Yesterday, my third visit, I decided to just open the door and be more curious about my shadow. In opening this door, I started to receive a lot of compassion. The wise part of me remembered that I signed up for having this human experience, and that having a shadow is part of that. There’s no wrong way to feel. In honoring the feelings that I more often try to distract myself from, I was able to experience the beautiful contrast of these feelings within me. —

Exactly 9 months ago I was returning from the place that I am now leaving to. A magical piece of land nestled in the sacred blue mountains of western North Carolina. Guided by a book a dream and my heart I adventured myself into that place. Not knowing what to expect. My experience was life changing. In that place I found my kindred wolf pack 🐺. In that place I died in a way that I never did before. In that place I received the codes that activated ancient memories within my DNA. In that place I underwent a powerful process of rebirth in the hands of wise ancient soul sister @lindastarwolf.
In that place my future self got activated. The journey was massive and is still unfolding. Since then life hasn’t been easy. I was shaken to my core and had to face my deepest shadow in a way I never did before. I hit rock bottom early this year and had to find the courage to come back to the light. In love I rose because love always wins. Initiations hey. Hard core process that shake us to our core. Necessary processes that lead us to freedom within ourselves because thru it the old conditioned patters and paradigms are deconstructed. Processes That lead us to awakening. That lead us to the remembrance of our divine nature. That throw us towards our sacred purpose in this word. So here I am. After exactly 9 months ready to birth what has been gestated for this period. For a month I will be nestled in this vortex going thru a deep process of transformation and healing. Looking forward for the next chapter of life and eager to share with you all the wisdom I am about to receive.

There is power, beauty, strength and fierceness dwelling in your shadow self. Bring your darkness along with your light and let’s dance with it all.
Birmingham women, join us for #soldanceexperience
Mondays at Villager Yoga. Lights out at 7:30pm.✨
The thing about being an inspirational/motivational life coach that others look to for a daily dose of positivity is that I’m still human. ...
I still have my own doubts and fears and struggles and challenges. ...
I still have days where I dance with my shadows and battle with anxiety and depression and am in so much pain that want to give up. ...
The journey to peace and fulfillment includes shining light in the darkness and healing the wounds you discover. ...
It includes what feels like “setbacks,” and a lot of emotional stretching, growth and discomfort. ...
The majority of us will never delve into the depths of this inner work because it’s freaking scary. ...
It’s easier to numb out, complain, or put blinders on and pretend like everything is rainbows and butterflies all the time. ...
But life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning to dance in the rain. ☔️
Institutionalised religion and the patriarchal system have spent centuries demolishing women’s own religions. It is my sincere passion to restore the lost ways of our female ancestors. But it’s hard, as there are few elders to look up to for guidance and to lean on for support.
I’m trying to create a life for myself for which there is no map. A life in movement, belonging nowhere and yet everywhere, pilgrimaging through life as though every moment held the potential secret to existence, acknowledging no nationality but the entire Earth as my home, and offering myself to wherever the winds take me for whatever healing that place might need after humanity has so-systematically desiccated it.
I work on myself like a tapestry, spinning a combination of golden threads and sea-urchin spines, in the hopes that the life I weave for myself may provide a map for the outside world that is suffering, disconnected from the land and from its very soul.

“...and above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.” ~Roald Dahl
so many of our gifts are hidden in our shadows, our fears, our places of resistance. in the words of t.s. eliot, there is only the dance...

The afterglow of the Taurus full moon is often felt like this: soft, slow, loving. This mood is for curling into everloving arms, snuggling under soft blankets as the rain smatters upon a tin roof, resting deeply in the felt senses.
Or not. There is a dark side to every moon, one she keeps hidden from plain sight that is immune to the sparkles. In Taurus it is embodied by the most stubborn resistance: to change, to evolution, to growth. Like the flip of most signs it is the anti stance, that which prevents deeply sinking into the sweet fragrant fields our sensual little bull is most at home in.
The Saturn Chiron bingle - our third in less than a year - was the precursor that shaped how this full moon was going to impact your world. If you have faced your wounding, looked kindly upon it as your own and set to work on its healing and integration, well may you see and feel a gate swinging open. It leads to your longed for future, the one you had to learn how to inhabit. Cue the harp chorus because babycakes, you've certainly earned your new digs.
If you remain mired in the blame game, fingerpointing and flailing, trying again and again and getting nowhere... because xyz [insert condition / circumstance / person] then you are in danger of being claimed by your own abyss. Yours. Of falling so far into your stuff that everyone else can only smack of it. Your stink.
Stubbornness is our ultimate learning difficulty. It is a blind refusal to budge couched in fear of change, which in a universe of perpetual motion, traps you fast. We forget that every single thing we know how to do now is a learned skill. All of it, every level and permutation. Learned. Yet our developmental amnesia can hold us stuck between where we have gotten to and what comes next.
Soften the bullheaded imperative and let him rest. Knuckle down. Deep exhale. Cultivate and curate a love of learning, the trammelling possibility held in dark matter not yet formed, seen, known. Feel it ache for your understanding, for you. Step towards it daily, mind expanding and heart stretching.
School yourself. Start again from now. . 🐃🐃🐃 .
Do or do not. There is no try.

“Before we can find peace, balance, harmony and right relationship- we have to acknowledge where are out of balance, out of harmony and out of alignment.” - Divine Harmony for @mysticmamma.
Grab hold of your shadow and find your feet on the dance floor.
Happy New Moon blessings to you all. I’m off to Byron to celebrate my sister and her beautiful growing belly and the life inside ✨

I've been the past week dealing with annoying tooth intervention and stitches in mouth and I'm finishing meds today... Well, we all know teeth pain, dont we? If not, lucky you! 😊 Funny how it works! This past week I had to stop, after coming back from a few days "melting" and opening so beautifully with the sun at the beach (also teeth inflamation, after all!). The body is so incredibly intelligent, if we listen to it... It tells us everything...(the mind is so boring and tricky, always trying to blablabla and controlling everything!) Naturally I was more open to just sit and breathe. Just that. 🌱
Today I've tried to flow and move but I felt my body stuck, slow and some slightly headache signs... So, Im just trying to free myself from this light discomfort, like a pill to smooth myself after this almost one week "stop"... it is what it is. After all, it is all about accepting, isn't it...? Life has many subtle (sometimes are very clear and loud, hehe!) ways to show us our priorities at the moment. For ayurveda (and many other "interpretation systems") our teeth are part of our Kapha (Earth element, structure) basis, so it is not so strange that these signs are happening... when you are transforming all your whole life, naturally your bones and articular structure talk to you 😉 ... It only depends if you're listening to what really matters to you.❓💭💭💭 .

Morning +Coffee + writing=❤️️ September was a great month. I had the opportunity to go deeper to my inner self and face the shadows that were sitting there and guess what? I invited them to dance. It has been a great learning. Every challenge make us stronger; the shadows are part of us and our best teacher. Let them come to the surface to get some sunlight they will shine bright and transform itself. Now it is time to set my intention for October and go even deeper! ❤️️
