In this live video, I go over what open, transparent and candid communication looks and feels like and how it affects your relationships with people, your beloved and your business.
Compassionate Support 🔥🔥💕
In romantic partnerships co-creating time to spend as an “us”, while honoring our desires for personal self discovery is a balancing act.
Building mutual compassion allows us the ability to support each others personal endeavors while still focusing on expanding the strong spiritual connection we have between us.
We use communication as a way to focus attention to what the other needs. Open spaces to communicate in authentic ways allow us each to be the others teacher, enhancing our navigating skills at this balance. 🙏🏼❤️🌈🌞🌛
That feeling when you and your work BFF get to work in the morning... 😊💯🙌
Throat chakra. 😶
👉Symbolises: expression, communication, and speaking the truth. 👉Blockages: poor listener, fear of speaking, difficulty communicating your feelings, excessive shyness, headaches, chronic sore throat, mouth ulcers, dental issues, pain or tension in the jaw or neck. 👉Counteract with yoga poses, (fish pose below) which open up the throat chakra to assist in moving energy through and cleansing. 👉Make sure your tongue is on the roof of your mouth, (allowing continued flow of energy), and jaw closed. Shoulders down & relaxed. You should feel tightness in the front part of your neck.

LOVE. Maybe it’s time for your own state of the union address.
Sometime we continue about the relationship complacent to where it is at...even though we are having some difficult feelings about how it’s running.
When we can come together as partners and hold safe space for one another to give words to the state of our union, we bring awareness to our partner and ourselves what is working and what is not. This doesn’t have to become a heavy processing, but rather a ‘this is what I’m seeing, feelings, experiencing, needing.’
From having insight, we now have the opportunity to show up in a new way for the relationship.
But not if we don’t express and definitely not if we don’t listen.
‘One thing that’s keeping me from investing more in this relationship is…’
‘I’m noticing I pull back when…’
‘What I’d feel really good about having more of is…’
‘I appreciate that --- is a part of our relationship dynamic.’
‘I feel so loved when you do…”
Relationships are a co-creation, meaning both people are active participants in the unfolding. In order to do so, both people need to have all the data to consciously work with it.
Are you speaking your deepest truth? .

The best part of being an Independent Pro is spending time with my family while working. I wish my phone didn't die because I wanted to get video of my kids educating the people coming to our booth, it was awesome! Next time though 😉
I tell my kids all the time you can't live if you're worried about what someone else thinks if you.
No one in this world gets to live your life and they can't live for you... So why are you worried about what they think?
Who cares if other people don't like your favorite color, don't like the same food, or have the same taste in music?
Why does it matter if people don't like your favorite shirt, have a problem with your natural hair or are confused about why you like stuff animals?
At the end of the day, you live in your skin and you only get one life. So, make good choices, do service for others and life the life you Love!💖
Too many people keep their fantasies to themselves. .
Hiding their truth from their partners. Living with guilt or shame about what they fantasise about.
Get this... fantasies are not only normal but they are healthy!!! .
They not only do they create more fun in your relationship but they allow you to learn so much more about your partners desires. .
Not to mention that they help to increase your libido too!
The problem is too many misunderstand fantasies and hold excessive judgement about our partners fantasies. Choosing to analyse them.
STOP! It’s time we dropped the stigma around fantasies.
Realise that they are healthy.
Realise that not all fantasies need to be lived out. In fact some are definitely best left as just fantasies. But you can have a lot of fun speaking about those fantasies in the bedroom! .
Men and woman have different focuses when it comes to fantasy and when we realise this we can embrace the desires of our partner and make them feel accepted, loved and desired for their fantasies. .
Do you hide your fantasies or share them freely with the one you love?
Do you judge yourself or hold shame around your fantasies?
Do you understand the difference between male and female fantasies? .
Remember in sex, love and life... always stay #truetoyou

This morning on our walk, we stopped by a small opening and began throwing in rocks. This one stood back and just took it all in. She appeared to be in deep thought, so I asked, “What’s up?” She responded with, “A mix of things.” “Really? Do you want discuss any of it?” “Not right now.” And that was it. She zoned back in and we continued on our walk. A huge part of me wanted to pry a little harder but I didn’t. I want her to feel comfortable enough to talk to me about anything but I also want her to know it’s okay to sit in your own thoughts and try to figure things out on your own. #opencommunication #independenthinker #mothernature #gratitude #deepinthought #juanitajames
"People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that's what everyone wants. But a true soulmate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life." "Love is like a friendship caught on fire. “ ❤️ @smiling.curls
my favourite author.
Yes even men have emotions and needs.
The quieter you are the more your dog will listen.
Does that sound counter-intuitive?
Think about it this way: if someone is always yelling at you, giving you information very loudly and repeatedly, it can teach you that you don't really have to pay that much attention. you always get a second chance. If you don't respond the first time, the next time you'll get told much louder and still get a yummy treat when you do it.
Plus, how eager and open are YOU to listen when someone is yelling at you?
Instead use words like the valuable tool that they are - to teach the communication style that you want.
If you don't want to always be yelling at your dog, chasing after them, repeating commands, then stop taking on that role. Choose to create yourself as a knowledgeable and valuable source of Direction and Protection for your dog. And then move forward at becoming that.
Leaders don't have to yell, people lean in to hear them whisper.

I once heard someone say "understanding was the booby prize of life". I wasn't quite sure what they meant when they said it. Until I got older and realized that understanding is the one thing that keeps people from living life or letting other people live their life the way they want to. I don't have to understand someone to accept and love them.
I don't have to understand my cousin's open infatuation with the BDSM culture to know there's nothing wrong with her.
I don't have to understand my daughter's love of superheroes and boy underwear to support her.
And why is it imperative to know my kid's gender preference or sexual orientation to hold them and love them just because I made them!
To understand something is to put limitations on it, and not all things in life should be limited.
I insist you don't believe anything I say. Take everything I say and test it out for yourself. Appreciate the logic and when you find yourself in a situation it's applicable, and you test it out, and you discover *for yourself* it's reasonable and true, you'll develop confidence around it. And soon, it will be self-evident.
Whenever you've acquired knowledge about something or someone, if you haven't experienced it, you cannot have confidence around it. You can only have an estimation around it.
Having poorly set expectations and aggrandized confidence will mostly always set you up for disappointment.
Estimate reasonably, and test. Only then will you discover where your confidence truly lies.
You can read tons of books on tightwire walking, but you'll never walk on a tightwire 80 stories high until you've practiced 2 feet off the ground and developed confidence.
When I tell you, you can trust me, or that I'm the most openly communicative person you'll meet or the most nonjudgmental person you'll meet, I'll not expect your believing me unless and until I've demonstrated to you and you've experienced for yourself my consistency... that what I say and what I do and how I behave and your intuition and experience tells you I'm consistent and therefore giving you *reasoned confidence* that you can expect, now and into the future, and estimate the things I say are trustworthy and belief-worthy.
This is the case for everything and everyone. Anything you haven't (or often can't) experience for yourself, you can't have confidence in.
Let's start the week off right! Learn something new above it your team by asking how they learn best! Knowing how a peer learns helps guide how to convey new process, strategy, or include them in development efforts. #happymonday #letsdothis #thecollaborative #teambuilding
66% of children who are sexually abused are between the ages of 12-17 (rain.org). Recently a teacher from my high school was arrested for soliciting sex from a 15 year old boy. It really disturbed me, in part because I remember that teacher "mentoring" several male students during high school. He was praised for his investment into kid's lives. I know we have heard this before, but predators earn our child's trust and ours. We assume this won't happen to our child. We assume because a person is a "Christian" they are safe. We assume if a person is kind to us that they are safe. We assume our teenager wouldn't allow anything to happen to them. If you are allowing anyone repeated time alone with your child, be mindful. Don't assume your child would tell you if they felt uncomfortable. Continue to ask questions and educate despite your child's age. Keep the lines of communication open regarding this topic with your teen. In doing so, their alignment with you is solidified aka they know you have their back, even if they allow something to happen and feel shame about it.

I saw this phrase while I was sitting in the passenger enjoying the wind in my face. I read it, laughed, and then read it again. Then I got a sinking feeling in the out of my stomach. This is sign encapsulated the reason why I had to get a divorce. Why I have to teach my girls what their worth is.
And why I dare you to be in a relationship deserving of you! 💖
This photo represents how blessed I am beyond words. I have a boss that cares for my well-being, on top of, or even more than, the work responsibilities at hand. For many people, our talk the other day would have been surreal for them. I can only keep saying that I am blessed beyond words.
It was a candid conversation of how I am and which direction I'm going. It was a sharing of raw thoughts, real dreams, and an expression of the current realities we face -- my strengths and weaknesses included. .
In that conversation, I had the chance to share my plans (including my freshly updated resume) and timelines. I am thankful for my boss' openness and genuine support. If anything, she is actually the one who inspired me to go after the things I want to experience in life and to act on them.
It was her voice in my head that kept ringing.
"If this is your goal, what are you doing NOW to achieve it?"
I am thankful for that push to have no regrets and to go after what I want to experience, especially while I have no family obligations yet. It's going to be tough, but I'm glad I started taking that first step. And I'm glad that in this journey, I can be fully transparent with my boss. I still don't know what's ahead and when I'll be able to live out my dream, but I look forward to the possibly crazy adventure towards what I want to achieve.
No regrets; only lessons.
Thanks Katak for inspiring me to live life fully and authentically. ❤️

One day, an old man was walking along a beach that was littered with thousands of starfish that had been washed ashore by the high tide. As he walked he came upon a young boy who was eagerly throwing the starfish back into the ocean, one by one.
Puzzled, the man looked at the boy and asked what he was doing. Without looking up from his task, the boy simply replied, “I’m saving these starfish, Sir”. The old man chuckled aloud, “Son, there are thousands of starfish and only one of you. What difference can you make?” The boy picked up a starfish, gently tossed it into the water and turning to the man, said, “I made a difference to that one!”
