i have always been too afraid
of opening up to people
so i stay silent
i let them make up
stories about me
i let them think
i am too egoistic
anything is fine
till i don't have to go up to them
and tell them
i am not what you think i am
i am just afraid
of letting someone see
what lies behind these walls'
the first time you sent me a text
or even ten more after that
i thought of you as
just another person
never did i realize you'll end up
becoming such a big part
of my life
i don't remember how
i started falling in love with you
all i know is we were a grey sky
one moment and
the very next
we became a sunset one
writing about our love is easy
it's full of moments
where we smile
where we annoy each other
with weird names
where we fight a lot
about stupid things
where we dream of our first house
the way our room will have
golden fairy lights
the way we will plan to make
amazing recipes and end up
making something completely different
the way every talk about the future
ends up with just one definite thing-
that we'll be in it together
on the other hand
when i try to write about you
all i can say is
you make me a different person
a person who is no longer afraid
of breaking her walls to let
someone else in
a person who doesn't have to
think much before letting the
a person who no longer knows
how to speak of love
without thinking about you

Hey how is everyone doing? Strange times we’re living in. It honestly feels surreal. Most everything is shut down, borders closings (I’m in Canada), cases climbing, and staying inside indefinitely....my mom is out of work, my brother is sick in another city (uncertain if he has the virus, they declined testing), and my dad who is a nurse may be put directly to work with the virus if it gets to that point, even though that’s far from his specialty. Feels like this isn’t real life. Im just focusing on poetry and painting right now to pass the time, and it helps me feel productive and proud. I’m not about to lay in bed all day or lose hope. I refuse to. There’s still a lot to hope for. I think this is bringing the whole world together. My heart is breaking for Italy right now, a whole generation is being lost, and that could happen here too if people don’t take it seriously. Anyways. How are you doing? Let me know how you’re feeling, and what helps you in these times. We’re all in this together. Love you all and hope you make it through safely ❤️

YOU ARE ALLOWED TO VENT. You are not a failure if you aren’t calm or positive every second of every day.
There is this weird belief in the spiritual/personal development world that you’re less evolved or negative for complaining.
Like yeah, nobody wants to be around a constantly negative person, but also we’re in the midst of a pandemic and it is perfectly okay to not be okay right now!!!
So do the art, yoga, reading, journaling and meditation. Choose to see the good. Try not to spiral into a pit of despair. But also give yourself permission to yell “are you fucking kidding me” as many times as you need.
You are human. Let yourself feel whatever you’re feeling. We will get through this craziness together.

It’s important to keep your frequencies high so our immune system is ready to fight when we need it to be!
We also need to remember that essential oils have a certain energy of electrical frequency. Most people don’t really think “frequency” when they think essential oils. The mainstream approach to working with essential oils is solely focused on their physical support. & that’s important; after all, we are spiritual beings in a body, having a very unique human experience. Having a way to address what shows up on the physical level when we’re working through energetic changes is necessary. But there is a complex vibrational level of support available to us through essential oils, which actually impacts every level of our experience. It’s here, at the frequency level, where essential oils become a powerful tool for transformative work.
Generally speaking, a lower frequency oil supports us at a physical level, a mid-frequency oil supports us with your emotional inquiries, and a high-frequency oil supports us at a spiritual or energetic level… at a level of our consciousness. So basically, the energy of thought and emotion are altered in the process of working with quality essential oils. Lower vibrational thoughts and resulting feelings are the cause of the dis-ease and weakening in the body.
EOs have the highest frequencies of any measured natural substance.
Pure grade essential oils range in frequency from 52 to 580 MHz (latest finding with Idaho Blue Spruce). A healthy body, from head to foot, typically has a frequency ranging from 62 to 78 MHz, while disease begins at 57 MHz.
A higher biometric frequency encourages our body to regenerate damaged cells, build a higher immune defence to viruses as well as sustain energy vitality.
Conflict resolution is one of the major keys to having a healthy and happy relationship. If you and your partner have the tools to repair after an argument, it can truly make all the difference.⠀
We have found from working with our clients that the area people need the most help with is the apology. An argument happens, this is normal, but we have found that so many couples don’t feel those feelings of relief, love and understanding after an argument because they don’t have the tools to repair an argument in a way that makes both parties feel seen, heard and understood.⠀
So here are some examples of a good apology. A good apology almost always has:⠀
1. A reflection of what made your partner upset and how they feel about it- make sure they feel seen. (Hint: this doesn’t mean you have to agree with them or admit blame, this is just simply acknowledging that you heard what they’re saying.)⠀
2. An ownership of what went wrong, making sure that they understand it was not your intention to hurt them.⠀
3. A desire to understand by asking your partner to calmly and lovingly explain what happened that frustrated them.⠀
4. A loving gesture. This can be as simple as just reminding your partner that you love and care about them, or if you’re ready to physically embrace, a nice, long hug can do the trick too. 💙⠀
Swipe right to see examples of what a not-so-good apology can look like, and notice how these examples rarely have some form of reflection of feelings, acknowledgement, ownership, or desire to understand.⠀
Is this something you struggle with in your relationship?⠀
People who are constantly in the public eye, such as movie stars or celebrities, are often motivated to stay silent about the issue of addiction.
It’s often seen as “weakness” or “taboo.” But it can be extremely helpful when those with a platform to raise awareness about the epidemic of substance abuse, speak out to the masses 🙌
