A time to unwind. Settle in, root down, ground, scan our bodies, find a sense of calm, breathe, R E L E A S E and R E S T O R E
If you feel overwhelmed, frustrated, growing restless, completely content with the distancing or floating somewhere in between...i offer & share my practice ✨🙏🏾
Having been medically & socially distanced for almost 2 years prior to the health shift happening now sparked several different emotions. The first was fear and anxiety, because i vividly recall feeling like a bubble girl and having to do it all again. Concerned about what not to touch & how many times people washed their hands. Many barriers existed to protect my health & others — stretches of time when no one could enter my hospital room without a gown, gloves and masks — The second emotion was absolute gratitude and streams of tears. I had a moment after teaching on Live last night. I realized i had forgotten where I had been & how far I’ve come physically, emotionally & spiritually. Good health is a gift. It’s easy to forget and get swept up, go easy on yourself! Bring yourself back to “thank you”, it’s simple, but equally P O W E R F U L 📸: @_odja

I take myself on new journeys every day, as much as possible. I ask questions. I take chances. I cry. I release. I receive. I connect. I move with attention on my intentions
#essencewellnesshouse was another space to do just that...be seen, be loved, be inspired, be motivated & be clear on what I desire for my life. I participate in my fulfillment and manifest the blessing of leading & teaching with purpose🙏🏾 #internationalwomensday #essencewellnesshouse
Faith will guide you to places fear doesn’t dare to follow
Hope & vulnerability will transform you
The greatest of these... is LOVE
Recovery & healing is a journey
Faith brought me here, hope keeps me here, and love will transcend me beyond my wildest dreams
Never stop believing

As I’m nearing the close of one chapter & turning the page to the next, I continue to learn so much about myself. One of my biggest lessons (that i still work on lol) is patience. My fiery side has this way of showing out & saying HELL NAW when something appears not as I would like it, but as it should be at that moment. I’m learning more about love & purpose each moment. Everything I struggled with, eventually passed, every moment of pure joy, passes just the same. It’s a gentle reminder to stay present, thankful and graceFULL ❤️ •••• 📸: @_odja

Over Christmas I started diving a little
deeper into my why. A trip home to Providence, RI set in motion so many different feelings and emotions. Being with family, being around immense love, understanding the power of that love and thinking about how our mental health & the world we co-create for ourselves plays a vital role in our recovery, not just my own.
Emotional recovery is just as vital as physical recovery. What you feed your soul ultimately manifests into your daily experience. 🎥: @jeocalero

Today was a definite test of my spirit.
I could have viewed this as a “bad” day. I cried at first when the IV was going in. I’m used to the process & discomfort, it was more so because my mind took over for a moment and reverted me back to the days where this was my everyday.
I listened to Wayne Dyer on the ride over and the message left with me was everything is perfectly on purpose.
There is an opposite to every thing we experience. After rain, the sun always reappears. After winter, spring brings bloom.
Take a moment today, whether you perceive it to be a “good or bad” day & gently remind yourself of every reason you have to SMILE...notice how the day & your perception immediately begins to shift❤️ #gratitude #saginggrace
I wrote a letter to AML and it was one of the most cathartic, clarifying moments. Today I walked into Equinox, not realizing my equifit was cancelled. I decided to stay anyway and try to do cardio. My heart jumped to 160 as I was on the machine, “normal” for a year of no cardio but startling to say the least. Something told me to pop in and see the Pilates instructor to reschedule a session. As we begin talking, I discovered she was an APL survivor, a form of AML. I was immediately in tears because I prayed to be guided to where I needed to be and who I needed to talk to today as part of my practice of surrender. Hearing her story prompted me to share my letter to AML. I left the gym with so much joy and gratitude. We are guided and protected by a force so powerful. Life unfolds in ways we don’t imagine & for me those blessings appear in the most divine of ways. If you’re experiencing an obstacle or life situation that feels as though it’s knocking you down...PAUSE...ask for clarity...ask for help..sit with the feelings that arise no matter how painful..let yourself feel it...surrender whatever that “it” is...a blessing already meant for you is waiting on the other side❣️ Read the full letter on the blog! #linkinbio #saginggrace #healingvibrations #love #yogainspiration
