noisily festival

I finished reading The Witch of Portobello by Paulo Coelho today.

I want to share this quote from the book with you👇🏼

.

“I’m afraid of taking steps that are not on the map, but by taking those steps despite my fears, I have a much more interesting life.”

.

Life is what you make it. We often grow up following a path that is set out without questioning if its even true for us. There is no set way of living your life. What we’re taught is only one version. If that doesn’t resonate, go out and explore. It’s never too late. Try things. Make mistakes. No one will tell you off.
.
I’m in the unknown most of the time. Half the time, I feel scared or anxious. Half the time, I trust and surrender. I wouldn’t have it any other way as there is no magic or growth on the safe side of controlled living.
.
People tell me I’m courageous and here’s why: In those moments of fear, I go forward because I don’t want to live with the regret of thinking what would have happened if I did take a chance. Living fully and not wanting to regret becomes stronger than the fear stopping me. When you take a risk, universe rewards you, so it turns out great most of the time. And even when I f*ck up big time, I have a lesson to take away.
.
Start doing what you want to do and everything else will be revealed to you. Have one foot in the responsibilities in your current reality and one foot in the next steps in your vision. Take it one small step at a time 🤗

I love you 💛

🔮 WHAT ARE YOU CHOOSING? 🔮

I’m back from Noisily festival!

.

What a journey it has been..
.
I find so many of my answers on the dance floor. Dance always leads me back home to myself and I have a deeper sense of appreciation for my body for taking me there every time.
.
Here’s what I saw 👇🏼
.
I saw what my dancer friend of mine told me once, “You can’t kill the person you dance with.” We’re all equal on the dance floor. Your language, where you’re from, how old you are, what your job is, none of that matters. We come together and we dance at the same level, our feet on the same floor.
.
I saw that after years of struggling with saying no and people pleasing, I own my space when I dance and only let people in with whom I want to dance with and share my energy. In the past it was a struggle, now it happens naturally.
.
I saw that when I judge, I create seperation between myself and people. There is no better or worse. Everyone is doing their own thing in their own way. It’s not up to me to judge.
.
I saw that my job is to be myself in all of me. To share myself and my truth in all openness and honesty. People who resonate with me will come and find me. I can’t be worrying what people will think as they will anyway. I might as well get on with my thing and not waste time.
.
I saw that I have a strong foundation in myself now. I don’t seek validation from men anymore in the way I used to do. Instead, I want to share love and create sacred & beautiful experiences together. My Ego’s still there obviously but I catch myself. This is very freeing and never ever reached this place in my life before.
.
I saw that the more I learn, the more I see I know nothing and the more I get better at letting go & surrendering.
.
I saw that letting go and healing can be enjoyable. It doesn’t have to be this serious task. When you enjoy yourself and laugh, you actually let go easier.
.
I saw that when I say, “YES AND ...” rather than “YES BUT ...” I open up and see more possibilities. I stop resisting and I soften. I get more creative.
.
.
Sometimes I have shame about who I am and what I want to do with my life. It goes against what I was taught. Then I hide and let people in only to a certain distance so that they don’t find out this shame. And my Ego feels scared if I reveal all of me, my innocence will be taken away. I’ve come a long way about this after many tears, sweat, healings etc. And after all that work, I can say that it comes down to what you choose in the moment.
.
What are you choosing? Are you choosing to push people away or open your heart to be seen fully? Are you choosing to judge people or to love people? Are you choosing to close your heart or reveal your innocence so all of you can be celebrated?
.

Big love and thank you to Tamlyn for coming with me, Paul, Octavia and to the Vauxhall 5rhythms family Jamie, Sam, Kyle Annalisa and others. It was beautiful to see and dance with many of you 😍

I love you 💛
