celebration

Each time I do a new workshop series I buy myself a dreamcatcher to celebrate ❤️

Each time I do a new workshop series I buy myself a dreamcatcher to celebrate ❤️ (Buying one for each workshop would be insane)

.

And whenever someone decides to work with me 1-1, I ring this bell I have. They’re small things to do but really makes a difference in allowing me to receive what I just did ✨ 

.

Normally, I tend to move to the next thing without stopping. I’m reminding myself more and more to slow down after a creation.
.
Raise your hand if you tend to rush to the next thing as well ✋🏼😊
.
Loads of love to you 

My heart feels so full...

Just look at all these beautiful women shining 😍 That's what I love seeing, women coming together as a tribe, being themselves, loving themselves, releasing pain and opening themselves up.. Thank you all for being there today fully 🙏🏼

.

Each time I do a workshop, a part of me goes, 'Yeah but you could've done this differently', 'What about this?' etc. Then I remind myself, actually girl, it went amazing! Then I go celebrate myself ❤️
.
Thank you G-Therapies Gulie Ismail and Amanda for assisting, means so much you were there. It feels wonderful to ask for help and receive it knowing that I don't have to do everything on my own 💛
.
Off to chill in my bath now 💁🏽
.
Loads of love to you 💜

⭐️ COMPLETING 2017 ✨ STARTING 2018 ⭐️

beginning-end.jpg

What a year it has been.. For the last few hours I'm sitting in a Starbucks, going through the photos, videos I've taken in 2017. I'm reflecting, writing, crying, feeling all sorts of emotions, letting go, inviting in my dreams.. 

If I had to give a title to last year it'd be, "Own Yourself: Transform Your Life in 1 Year". So much happened in this past year 🙌🏼
.
I facilitated:
- 3 Find Your Bliss workshops
- 1 Connection Through Joy workshop
- 10 Goddess Circles
- 2 Freedom Through Breath workshops
- 1 Embrace Your Divinity workshop
- 1 cacao ceremony
- 2 interviews
- 141 private sessions
.
Completed a transformational coaching qualification, 4 group breathwork sessions, a big clear out in my house, ISTA training level 1, 4 times being on the team for SuperGenius..
.
Launched my website, my business, women's group, had a stand, attended so many networking events, met so many wonderful people doing what they love..
.
Had countless breathwork, healings, dances, breakthroughs, Indian food, laughters, hugs, celebrations, ups and downs..
.
As the year went I had less makeup, fewer bras, a bigger altar, more 5rhythms, more feathers, more dresses..
.
A funeral happened. A wedding and a new baby was born..
.
My body changed completely through healing, breathwork, releasing, changing old programs without even working out regularly..
.
I danced fully naked with beautiful beings celebrating joy of life..
.
I created an intimate and playful relationship with my man where we grow and serve together..
.
I went on a holiday in Turkey with my love traveling around for 5 weeks..
.
The wisest decision I made was always following my truth. The biggest risk I took was doing my first solo women's workshop making it up on the spot. The most important thing I did for others was to connect them to their true essence, cutting through all the crap we tell ourselves.

-----

I'm sharing some moments that meant a lot for me in the last year. The biggest lesson I learnt last year was there's no point in success and accomplishment if there's no one to share it with, so I want to thank some people for their presence and love in my life 💜 
.
I can't tag everyone I ever had a connection with this year, if your name is not there please don't take it personally. If we were in each other's life in some way this year, know that I love and acknowledge you ✨ Also know that there was a tag limit 😃
.
My sisters NathalieG-Therapies GulieSarahLaurenDaisieAmandaTamlynMarium for times they held me, supported me, laughed loads with me and went on adventures with me. I love you all and even when I dissappear and go to my independance mode know that I'm there for you 💖

.
My friend Duke, thank you for everything we shared, talks, adventures, healings. You taught me so much this year that I'll ever be grateful for. I'm always here for you and I want to see you more in 2018 💙

I am proud of the woman I've become. And I am grateful for the growth and transformation that happened in my life last year.

I learnt that when I follow through on my truth, I get what I want and so much more. When I seek an acknowledgment everything goes downhill. I learnt that I can do anything that I put into my mind, that I have a lot to offer and share. I learnt that as I create a life I love, things don't have to be hard, a struggle. It can be fun, easy and effortless. 
.
I'm letting go of:
- Needing a rule book telling me how to do things
- Fitting into norm, not wanting to push people's understanding of what's acceptable
- Playing small
- Self judgment, impatience, sadness, anger and so much more
.
Thank you so much for all the lessons, all the hard times, all the fun times. Thank you 2017 for pushing me to own myself, to follow my truth. I let go of the girl I was and welcome the woman I am today 😍
.
Next year will have:
- Publishing 2 books
- Running a retreat for women
- Guiding men and women into who they truly are
- More breathwork, healing, dancing, tantra, sessions, workshops, talks
- Travels, festivals, trainings
- Connecting with people more
- Many more things I will reveal as I go 😉
.
I will say yes when its true to say yes, when I'm about to play big and when there's an opportunity to grow ✨
.

.

Here are great questions to acknowledge, appreciate and complete 2017:
1. What have I created in 2017?
2. What have I learnt in 2017?
3. What am I letting go of from 2017?
4. What am I going to create in 2018?

Dare to dream. Let your imagination go wild, there's no limit to what you can create in the next year 😉 Anything is possible. Now it's your time to shine! ⭐️✨

Happy new years! Wishing you everything you ever desired in this year ahead of you..

I love you all 😍

Early New Year's celebration with family 😍🎉✨

Playing backgammon is a well known thing in Turkey and my uncle is really good at it, I found out he was the best in our family tonight. I'm proud to say I won 3-1 despite his verbal demoralisations :)
.
I absolutely love board games. I get really competitive in them and usually win ☺️💙 
.
Who loves board games? 🎲
.
Let's play! I'll still love you even if you win 😃💛

Wishing you a wonderful last day of 2017 ⭐️✨

🎉 CELEBRATE WHO YOU ARE 🎉

celebrate who you are.jpg

.

When you honour and acknowledge who you are, you stop comparing yourself and you celebrate your gifts.

.

You might take for granted for what you achieved so far, like its a normal thing to do so. But it's not.
.
When you've done something that you haven't done before, your Ego might not allow you to celebrate that. It might throw all sorts of thoughts at you to hold you back from what you just created like, 'you could have done it differently', 'it wasn't good enough', 'you didn't do it how you planned to do it' etc..
.
Because now you reached a new level😉 Ego might not want you to see that.. You've grown more. See the truth, the reality of what you just did. Ask yourself what have I created and answer honestly..
.
Yesterday Yana and I gave a 1 day workshop for women..
.
I feel honoured to see the level of openness and willingness to grow.. I feel grateful to be there, co-facilitating this powerful transformation.
.
Seeing the participants, seeing Yana, seeing myself, seeing all the differences as things to celebrate not to compare was beautiful.. Then we can collaborate. Rather than working against we can work with our strengths.
.
You're unique in your own way. We're all one and connected, but within that you have a gift to serve the world..
.
See all the parts that make you, you. Your similarities with other people, your differences, your fears, your dreams.. They're all parts of you.
.
Celebrate what you do, who you are. If you didn't have those differences you'd just be like anyone else and there won't be a rich mixture. By being you, you allow others to be themselves too.
.
Here are some questions you can ask yourself to honour who you are:
- What are the things I'm good at that some people are not?
- What do I love about myself?
- What do I absolutely love doing?
.
I'd love to hear from you. What are the three qualities that makes you, you? Comment below 😘
.
Here's to a new level 😉🎉
.
Sending you loads of love ☀️💛

🌕 BEGINNINGS & ENDINGS 🌑

.

Every end is a beginning of something new. Everything has a rhythm, a flow in it. The flow between two polarities. Day starts, day ends. Then night starts and night ends.

.

Something ending is not a bad thing, its not a good thing either. It just means that it finished its course and now its time to move onto something else with the lesson you learnt.
.
You might hold onto something amazing happened, but you don't know what's about to happen after that. By letting it go, you're creating an empty space to invite something even better into your life. That void will be filled.
.
As you grow and change, the old ways will fall apart. People will naturally dissolve out of your life, you will not be interested in same things that you loved. It's inevitable, nature is accommodating your new level, taking what you no longer need and bringing what you need.
.
That in between stage can feel a bit weird in the beginning, know that things will ground and you'll have new foundations.
.
The more fluid you are, the more adaptable you'll be with those changes. You'll just flow with life. But when you block and try to hold on to what you have, nothing flows, you're just blocking nature. As you resist less and surrender more, you'll see how easy things can be.
.
It's like taking a bath in the same water over and over again. That's not nice 😃 You need to fill it up, empty it then fill it up again next time. Then water flows and you flow, you embrace the changes of life.
.
So here are few things you can do when you fear beginnings and endings:
- Notice what you are scared of loosing, remind yourself what's most important for you.
- Notice what your mind is telling you, question if that's real.
- Notice what your body and heart is telling you (to do this, close your eyes and imagine diving into your heart and ask 'what do i need to know?')
- Close your eyes after diving into your heart, ask for guidance on your next step in this change, it will come.
.
How do you feel about endings and new beginnings, change? Do you fear it or do you love it? 🙌🏼 Let me know in the comments 💛💫
.
Much love to you 💚✨

💫 EMBRACE YOUR DIVINITY 💫

I haven't always been the woman I am today, was very masculine and up in my head all the time.. It was exhausting, stressful and had no idea what I wanted to do, what my body wanted to do.

.

Then through ecstatic dancing, healing, breathwork, bodywork, tantra, several trainings, events and integrating the lessons I learnt, I started to get in touch with my sensuality. Started to flow with my feminine nature and still get so much done 😃 I'm still amazed at how you don't have to ditch your feminine energy to get stuff done, as you flow your productivity increases..
.
Now, am I sensual, sexy, embracing my raw sensuality 24/7? Of course not. I still have days where I go to default mode, I'm still human. But I'm aware and can quickly get out that and come back to flow and connect with my sensuality.
.
It can be easy and doesn't have to be a struggle..
.
My gorgeous friend Yana and I decided to collaborate and offer a 1 day immersion into embracing your divinity and connecting with your feminine nature.
.
What excites me most is we're not offering a wishy washy, 'feel good' kinda experience. You'll get powerful insights and loads to take away with you 💜 I like offering things that I wish was offered to me in a condensed pack, so here it is 😃
.
You will receive tools we gathered over the years to:
.
- Heal wounds and connect with your true self
- Cultivate a deepening of love and connection among women
- Address and shift stagnated emotions in the body, truly face all that stands between yourself and radiant liberation
- Embody your raw sensuality
- Walk away holding powerful tools to shift your reality when needed
.
Also includes 2 sessions with Yana and I after the workshop for your further growth and support.
.
We have limited spaces, if you'd like to join, book your ticket now:

Much love to you beautiful
