I got a comment in the community from someone saying they wanted to be a spiritual teacher but were afraid they’d be labeled a charlatan. Or, someone would question their lack of credentials.
My answer was: they will.
Anyone who has a message, anyone who speaks their truth will be judged. You can have all the credentials in the world, and that won’t matter when someone has defined you (I’m living proof.) We humans do what we always do: we put people in boxes. We assign meaning. We create a story around people’s actions. We determine people’s intentions.
People have every right to do this.
Our work is to know our “why.” It’s to truly know ourselves, and our own intentions. Then, release the need to manage perceptions.
They can’t be managed anyway. It isn’t our place.
My greatest wish, the reason I show up every day, is to hopefully inspire you to show up too. You’re worth it. You deserve it.
Being misunderstood is a gift. It’s a rite of passage. We will always project our own insecurities others others.
The best example I have of this is when my parents found out I was gay. They were hurt.
This doesn’t come from the reality that they didn’t love me, or that they didn’t want to accept me. They struggled with what so many of our parents do: a child fantasy.
And, they needed time to release that fantasy for what actually is. (The Italian wife with the husband and kids 💁🏻♀️) This is one of many examples of something I see all the time. Adults living out of alignment desperately trying to fulfill that fantasy role for a parent.
It leads to resentment, addiction, as layers of self betrayal.
Many of our parents haven’t resolved their own traumas. So they parent us from a wounded place. Thinking they know what’s best for us without actually seeing or hearing us.
How could they? They were never seen or heard.
Part of our healing is getting in touch with our true nature. It’s separating “us” from them (trust me you’re more them than you’re aware of) + becoming self actualized.
Fulfilling the fantasy role is like being on a hamster wheel.
Emotional maturity is getting off for good.
It’s claiming your own reality, belief systems + needs.
This life is for you.
Honor your parents by living authentically, even if that doesn’t align with what they’ve created within their minds #selfhealers

Releasing thousands of Lanterns.
These sky lanterns are called khom loi in Thai language, which means floating lanterns. The khom loi are made of rice paper, stretched over a bamboo frame paper making it less harsh on our environment. The hot air of the candle is trapped inside and makes the lantern rise from the ground. #universe_dope

I find myself looking deep inside my being taking personal inventories on nights like tonight. idk theres Something about the rain that causes this self-reflection. i guess its the fact that when it rains it gets dark cold and wet which could happen to me on the inside if i didn't. Eventually the animals plants and sun comes out the play JUST LIKE MY SPIRIT. am i the storm? the sunny day? or both?
Theres alot i still need to learn about myself. #yinyang#toa#doa#onedayatatime#rainydaze #prayer#meditation#personinventory
Look Ahead 👀 Move Forward 👣
2019 will close out with its fair share of shifts and events. We have a #fullmoon and #eclipse to end the year with a 💥
But here’s the thing folks, I am more of a proactive kind of gal.
I believe that we have lots of options when it comes to what’s going on around us.
Sure, the heavens will ALWAYS be rumbling about.
Challenges will come. 💯
And if you are super sensitive and empathic, you are going to FEEL it!!
The idea is to know HOW to use the energy to your benefit rather than detriment, respond rather than freak out and react 😤
You are NOT a victim to astrological transits when you know what to do!!
The mark of spiritual maturity is being rooted in a practice and not being tossed about by everything around you. #meditation#mantra
Master your energy!! Understand that the #aceofwands represents the beginning point you receive every morning
You get to wake up and do your day!
It represents the beginning of EVERY inhalation, EVERY creative thought 💭....
In other words, it’s the beginning of new Karma 🌱
What do you want to do with this opportunity 🤔
Do you want to sit back and say you are a victim to the rumblings around you or are you serious about gathering your #agni and directing your attention to where you need to go?
Sometimes the biggest lesson is learning independence ☝️ Spirit gives you the reigns (the Ace). You decide what to do with the energy!!
It’s ALL part of having the human experience!
Have a beautiful day!
Many blessings on the path today
Lokah Somastah Sukino Bhavantu 🗝📿 It's driven me before
And it seems to be the way that everyone else gets around
But lately I am beginning to find
That when I drive myself my light is found!!! #dailytarotreadings#aries#saveyourself#sagittarius#truthfultuesday#blamegame#yogaeverydamnday#saveyourself#empathsandoldsouls#astrology#woundedsouls#spiritguides#keepmovingforward#doyou#healyourlife#sparkofthedivine

“I feel running is hugely underestimated. A lot of people think that they want to get fit, so they should start running. In actual fact, its almost the complete opposite. Get fit first, then start running“ - according to our star trainer, Gaby.
Gaby radiates passion when working with clients of all fitness levels. Carefully guiding them towards the results they crave. As well as, helping clients to understand how great they can feel through running, “there’s nothing more rewarding than completing a run, not to mention the huge rush of endorphins you receive afterwards.”
Completing a course in ‘leadership in running’ has enabled Gaby to harness and hone her skills. Including improving her ability to interact effectively, isolate injury issues, and adjust running technique. All of which compound into big results for her clients!
Join me in the first monthly Women’s Circle Friday 12/13/19 at 7pm at Kundalini Yoga of Long Island. We will sing, dance, stretch, share and meditate. “A women’s circle is a safe and sacred space for women to come together, use their voices, be heard and be seen. Women throughout history have gathered in circles to empower each other and share wisdom. These affirming community gatherings help women get in touch with their feminine strength and turn up their positive vibration”. #womenscircle#womenscircles#goddess#divinefeminine#kundaliniyoga#meditation#gong@simrandev11
Here are some impressions of my last workshop at @yogibude_barmbek. I love offering a holistic approach to dive deeper into ourselves with yoga, meditation, and intuitive art. I am still so full of love after this workshop and so amazed by the beautiful feedback. Thank you so much for this journey and your trust, learning self-awareness, self-love, and self-determination. And have a look at those powerful mandalas from one of the beautiful participants, representing the past, present, and future - aren‘t they wonderful?
If you‘re curious about how creativity and mindfulness connect and how you can use it as a transformative tool, join my next workshop on the 19th of January! This time it will be an immersion into powerful self-healing methods. You‘ll learn how to do Reiki on yourself to balance your chakras, you‘ll heal to your inner child throughout a vinyasa flow, you’ll do an ancient Hawaiian ritual for long-lasting forgiveness, and you‘ll learn creative techniques and journaling practices to manifest positive shifts in your life. In the end, you‘ll create your own bouquet of healing herbs, sage and dried flowers for cleansing your energies at home. And as always, you can look forward to healthy vegan snacks (all homemade), tea and a beautiful exchange of energies. Book your early bird spot until the 31st of December (link in bio)! I cannot wait to see you there🙏🏼
You can do this... you are the only one who can do this! yes it’s in your own hands... you are already improving, stepping into your own personal power and taking responsibility for your slice of life. The universe is now sending you signs, to up your game, so as before take that first step today and springboard yourself towards becoming the person you want to become. Be the change 💜
Be the energy you want to attract!
Be the light that helps others see.

This WEBINAR presents a framework for addiction relapse prevention that includes the cognitive approach of the 12-step program, the trauma healing approach of Somatic Experiencing and the body/mind based approaches offered by yoga therapy and mindfulness practices. Utilizing material from ancient texts, trauma research as well as, information and data from modern neuroscience studies, we will explore how combining cognitive and somatic approaches supports changes in brain patterning. This integrated framework, based in the theme ‘The Issues Live in Our Tissues,’ presents a holistic addiction relapse prevention model that supports compassionate awareness, deep-rooted change and healing.
Welcome to the 10th Advent Window ❤️ Your treat today is... 50% off a crystal healing treatment (£25 RRP £50!)🧖🏼♀️❤️🙏🏼🙏🏼❤️💕💎 (for any treatments booked between now and end of February) 🎄🤩🎄❤️ USE CODE ADVENTDAY10 🎄 Welcome to the best hour of your life!!! We will take you through a process and pop you out the other end, refreshingly alive and ready to absolutely love life!!! With the help of crystal healing we will unblock what may be holding you back and give you a fresh start... a new you!!! In simple terms... There are seven chakras which are openings into energy points within the physical body. Each chakra vibrates at a different frequency, and transmits energy when opened and balanced. When any of the chakras are closed or blocked, dis~ease can occur as the energy which is needed to sustain the physical and emotional body’s well-being is restricted. In order to correct this problem, the seven chakras must be opened and re-balanced, thereby clearing any clogged or blocked chakras and allowing energy to flow freely into the physical body ~ this is the base aim of this session. ❤️❤️❤️ #chakra#meditation#crystals#crystalhealing#yoga#chakras#love#spiritual#healing#reiki#mala#energy#chakrahealing#healingcrystals#thirdeye#spirituality#crystal#gemstones#aura#healingstones#chakrabalancing
Kefalonia such a beautiful island ✨ I had the best sleep on the island, so deep, calm and peaceful 😴 Wheel Pose - Urdhva Dhanurasana 🧘🏼♀️Urdhva means “upward” in Sanskrit and dhnaur translates as “bow”. Backbends are great heart openers 💕 The Wheel pose tones the spine, strengthens the abdominal and pelvic organs, stimulates the pineal gland (third eye 👁 ) and thyroid glands. Furthermore, it prevents the prolapse of the uterus and helps with menstrual cramps. One pose - many benefits 🧘🏼♀️

Do you lie to yourself?
I spent a long time being unhappy and unfulfilled with where I was in my life. I felt alone in my relationships, I’d given up on my goals because I’d failed so many times, I was emotionally and financially bankrupt and I couldn’t see myself beyond the role of mother, daughter or wife. And I told myself I deserved it. .
I felt resentment towards my entire life until I realized that I was the only person responsible for where I was. I was the one who chose to, little by little, minimize who I am and make myself smaller and smaller to make others feel better about themselves. .
No one wins in that lie, and, it IS a giant lie. What lies do you tell yourself to justify how crappy you feel? Do you tell yourself you don’t have a right to live in joy, light and freedom? That you deserve those feelings of unworthiness?
My Emotional Empowerment Program is specifically designed to help you reconnect with yourSelf in the truth. In an intentional way that easefully helps you to make sure your needs are being met emotionally, physically, financially and spiritually, enabling you to balance the ever-shifting needs of others in your life. .
If you want more clarity, deeper connections in your life, more ease within your emotional landscape and a reconnection with the lightness of who you truly are, then sign up for my 6-week Program (link is in my bio 👉🏻)

Thank you for your heart beautiful sister @irismuller 📸 @fotosdeotto thank you🙏
I changed my name. 🐉 🖖✨
For many moons now, I've felt like my old namesake "@ctgyogalife" has begun to feel small. And inaccurate. I've had this handle for years and it was a lovely vehicle to carry me through my personal yoga journey, that in many ways led me to where I am today. I'm so thankful for her. I honor her. But it is time to let her go in the spirit of growth and expansion.
The obvious reason is that my life has grown to encompass so much more than just yoga. I no longer find accurate identification as an individual packet of consciousness, and have felt a perspective shift out of my mind/body dualism (not that my lessons learned from yoga and uniting my mind and body are no longer irrelevant--far from it. I feel like I am at a pivot point where all facets of my container are being asked to activate and this means considering more than just my mental and physical bodies). So it's time to shed my proverbial skin.
Through my meditations, it's become clear. The new vessel to carry me through the next chapter of things is: Sister Starborne. .
This name holds more space and meaning. It moves away from the singular, and into the multidimensional. It gives a nod to our cosmic connectedness and the undeniable reality that no matter what you believe, we all originate from the same stardust. And sometimes, to fully walk towards that reality, we need a companion to help us get there. This is what Sister Starborne is all about. Providing you with a cosmic ally of sorts, to lead you back to your memories of who you truly are, and why you have embodied your current existence. It's not about me having the answers, but rather about holding your hand and heart while you dive deep to find them yourself.
In 2020, I will be sharing with all of you on Planet Earth, 2 new gifts:
. #1 : "Starseed Activations": A trio of sessions to help you remember your Starborne roots. I've been carefully letting the details of these sessions crystallize through meditation and stillness, and the time is very near to begin sharing them with you. (Cont. in comments) 👇

¿Te permites a ti y/o permites a tus relaciones ser lo que desean ser?
Retener no tiene nada que ver con amar, sino más bien con el “querer”.
Cuando “quiero” expreso mi necesidad y mis miedos manifestados en tener al otro; de lo contrario amar es aceptar y quien ama no teme a la expresión libre de los seres que lo acompañan.

Abstract art is an incredible component to add to contemporary spaces as choosing the art itself is a very customizable and versatile process, helping you create a harmonious and visual link between the different elements of your living space! "Abstraction allows man to see with his mind what he cannot see physically with his eyes....Abstract art enables the artist to perceive beyond the tangible, to extract the infinite out of the finite. It is the emancipation of the mind."
