How Traveling South America alone healed my Soul

For the last 6 months I’ve been living in Colombia🇨🇴

I left my beautiful home in Hawaii with a 1 way ticket to Colombia to attend a 1 month Yoga internship in Spanish and it has been some of the hardest months…

Dear Goddess,

Some days it seems that opening your star lit eyes and grounding your feet to rise up out of bed is the hardest thing to do.

Dear goddess,

When you feel weary like the weight of the world is pressed against your shoulders and your knees seem to…

1. Realize

Where you´ve been doesn´t define who you are.

Often times we describe ourselves as products of the choices we have made along the way.

I am here to remind you

WHO YOU ARE IS NOT WHERE YOU HAVE BEEN.

In life, we make decisions based off of where…

A letter to my Yoni

Yoni: Sanskrit (Hindu) meaning ¨womb¨ or sacred temple. The Yoni is the symbol of the Hindu Goddess Shakti. Shakti represents divine cosmic energy and divine feminine energy. The Yoni is our center for power, sexuality, insight, and intuition.

Before we can heal we must reconcile…

Dear SELF

I am sorry for the times I took away your imagination

and told you “Get to work”

I apologize for the times I snatched away your dreams

and told you to “Get real”

I am sorry I hardened your soft cocoa butter skin with sadness

I am…

No longer serve us

Why do we fight to hold onto things that no longer serve us?

Why do we hold onto to people who hurt us?

Why do swim against the current

instead of surf the waves?

Why do we speak of love but chose pain?

Why?

I’m working on letting it go

Letting you go

Letting all things that aren’t love GO

I’ve noticed it’s difficult for me to “go with the flow”

I’m used to demanding control

Because to be in control feels safe

To be in control feels like no one can take your power away

But what’s truly powerful

is listening to Intuition

Trusting &

Having faith…

That what is meant for you, will be

We must surrender. So that we choose self and stop putting everyone else before our own health.

Let go. It will be okay.

Hindsight

It’s been a minute since I sat down to write

To be honest,

I was quite hesitate

To recite the

The poetry I call life

Many sleepless nights

And long days catered to insights

I blink and arrive back at that fight

If only our yells and screams had…

Where you are supposed to be

I spent the past two weeks reflecting on who I wanted to be.

Where I was going next

and how I can be truly free.

And in the time I’ve spent with self, reading for pleasure, walking outside to breath in FRESH air, practicing yoga at the beach, crying to flush and release.

It hit me…🌊

I am exactly

where

I am supposed to be.

— —

Allow yourself permission to tap in to your true self. Being authentically you is your GIFT

To this planet

Choose freedom.

They say…

What is meant to be WILL be

but baby why I feel like they talkin´ bout you and me?

The more I try to make it work

the more you swim away from me

in an ocean deep beyond the eye can see

all i crave is solid ground to stand on two feet

You dissolve like sand between fingertips

yet i still try to get a grip

they say let go and let flow

but I´m afraid you´ll be the greatest love ill ever know

okay

it´s clear now

more than anything

you want to be let go

just like that like footprints on the shore

my man, partner in crime, lover

no more.
