#MAGICMONDAY ✨ Today’s magic is in the porcupine, who symbolizes innocence, faith, trust, playfulness and humility. The porcupine is a loving, non aggressive animal and will only use its quills if fear is present and trust is betrayed. . . “Trust can open doorways to the creation of space. The space thus created allows others to open their hearts to you and share their gifts of love, joy, and companionship. This card is a gentle reminder not to get caught in the chaos of the adult world where fear, greed, and suffering are commonplace. Open your heart and embrace your playfulness.” . . You are NEVER too old to PLAY! If you get too caught up in the stress of the adult world, you will forget what brings you joy and how to play. There is an innocence from childhood that we often forget about once we get older, so this card is telling us to remember what it was that brought us joy as children. Use your imagination and play, because every day is a new opportunity to go on a new adventure and discover things you may be missing out on ✨
Every situation and every experience you go through will get you to exactly where you’re supposed to be. Be patient and trust the process ✨ Happy #humpday !
Some late night #mondaymagic ✨ Ahhh coyote. The coyote has many powerful abilities and messages and they may not always work in your favor or be what you want to hear, but you will definitely learn a lesson about yourself. The coyote is the trickster of animal medicine, and has a lot to do with foolishness. Do you find yourself taking part in self sabotage? Do you feel like you are blind to things that may stand right in front of you? Do you feel like the universe is playing a cosmic joke on you? . . The foolish situations you find yourself in may feel surprising or humorous to you at times, but it is time to watch out for yourself now instead of falling into your own trap again. . . “Go immediately beneath the surface of your experiences. Ask yourself what you are really doing and why. Are you playing jokes on yourself? Are you trying to fool an adversary? Is someone tricking you? Do you want to give the office geek the phone number of the new secretary or do you want to pull a prank on your best friend? When was the last time you did something just because it was crazy and fun?” . . You may know very well what you are doing, or you may not be conscious of your pathway of foolishness. Have you tricked others or yourself to believe that you really know what you are doing? Try to look at the positive side of whatever you’re doing right now. The medicine of the coyote is to laugh... laugh at yourself, take a new perspective, have fun, but be aware of what you are getting yourself into or telling yourself so that you don’t create a tricky trap for yourself to fall into.

What you allow is what will continue. My lovely yoga teacher @ericastanzioneyoga shared this quote during teacher training and it has really stuck with me, I think because I never realized how true it was. What we allow into our lives, what we allow people to treat us like, is exactly what will continue. . . I always tell people to be mindful of the energy that we put out into the world because I believe that’s the kind of energy we end up attracting. If we are constantly getting hung up in the negative and only seeing the negative, that’s all we’ll continue to see. If we can see the positive and try to always be positive, more positivity will come. The same goes with relationships. If we allow negative relationships to continue for longer than they serve us, we can lose sight of our happiness. If we allow people to walk all over us or take advantage of our kindness, we will probably continue to attract that. I know how hard that is to do. Being someone who wants to see the best in people and help people, I have found that I’ve attracted a lot of people who don’t love themselves and haven’t done the work to get there. While I can and have tried to help, not everyone is ready and it is really hard to say no to these people and let them go but it’s also hard to live a life allowing people to continuously take advantage of your willingness to hold space for them. . . I believe one of the keys to happiness is self love. Do the work. Love yourself enough to say no to people who don’t treat you right. Love yourself enough to know your worth. Love yourself enough to let go of relationships that drain your energy. Love yourself enough to be okay alone. Love yourself, and the love you deserve will find you✨ #SELFLOVEISTHEBESTLOVE
Happy #magicmonday ✨ Today we have the bat, which is a symbol of rebirth and “shamanistic death”. This is a symbolic death of your old ways of life and your identity. Throughout our lifetimes we acquire a lot of different patterns of behavior, that at some point no longer serve us. When it’s time to let go of these patterns, it can be very difficult physically and mentally to endure, but it’s something we have to go through in order to transform ourselves. . . . “This symbolizes the need for a ritualistic death of some way of life that no longer suits your new growth pattern. This can be letting go of old habits, and assuming the position in life that prepares you for rebirth. If you resist your destiny, it can be a long, drawn out and painful death. The universe is always asking you to grow and become your future, to do so you must die the shamans death.” . . This can definitely sound intimidating or just plain old difficult, but in order to transform our lives and go through a rebirth, we have to let go of anything that no longer serves us. Whether it be letting go of an old habit, a relationship, physical items, or thought patterns, we have to go through this part of the rebirth cycle in order to be reborn into who were supposed to be. Take some time to sit with yourself, think about what you need to let go of and what you need to do to start that process ✨
Don’t give away your energy to people or things that cost you your well being and peace ✨
Take a moment to go within and observe what you’re thinking, what you’re saying, what you’re feeling, what you’re experiencing. Allow yourself to feel and experience whatever it is going on in this moment, accept it, and then release it and surrender to the present moment so that you can more forward peacefully✨ . . . Lots of stuff going on astrologically this week! Full moon, lunar eclipse, and mercury retrograde. Remember to be mindful and gentle with yourself, and others🌕
