The Metta Message

Good morning beautiful souls. There are times in my life when certain things happen and I know that I’ve been given a sign.

The other day my beautiful yoga teacher ended the class with the Metta prayer.

There are several different versions, and they are all beautiful. Here’s one version that I love.

May all beings be safe

May all beings be happy

May all beings be well

May all beings be safe

May all beings be free from suffering

And so it goes that you are freeing all beings and yourself as well. As she read that it just really stuck with me. Not because it was the first time I’d heard it, but more because of the way it touched my soul that day.

My next experience with this was that I just so happened to be reading a book called Metahuman by Deepak Chopra. It’s all about learning how to explore yourself and unleashing your own infinite potential.

Clearly there’s a Metta message here for my heart and I’m supposed to share it.

Metta comes from the heart not the head.

It’s a simple blessing for all beings and all creatures. For those that are here and those that are yet to come. It’s the beginning of some very, very old wisdom and it’s time for you to practice your own Metahuman selves.

Clearly you see where the world lacks love and that fear is winning. What if you learned how to create peace and harmony within so that you could teach others to find their own lights?

What if this year we all did something different and we truly woke up to what matters in this world, and what doesn’t.

I hope you take the time to explore your own heart 💜 during these times, because it’s the only thing you can truly change.

Love you friends

I don’t see color, I see souls

I don’t see color I see souls

Good morning friends
As the world continues to fall apart with hate and so much more I felt the need to write to you this morning as a white privileged woman.

Did you know that growing up my best friend was black?
Did you know that I love her family as much as I love my own family?
Did you know that I’ve never seen color?
Because it’s the truth.

Do you know that some of my deepest morals come from their house?

Growing up in a small town in Ohio has its ups and it’s downs, but I’m super thankful that we have some diversity here.

I’m not going to make this post to create more division in the world, I’m simply writing to share my experiences with you.

Eddie C Scipio and Marsha Rockhold-Scipio are very much my second parents. They poured into my heart as a teenager and as an adult. My life wouldn’t look like it does if it weren’t for some of the lessons I learned at their house and while in their presence.

Never once was I concerned with the color of their skin. And they sure as hell didn’t treat me any different simply because I was a white girl.

From the very beginning we saw each other’s souls, not our stupid bodies.

We are all the same even if your mind won’t allow you to admit it.
Take away the clothing and the banks accounts and the color and tell me what’s left.

We didn’t get to choose our color but we do get to choose our voices. If you make racist jokes or remarks you are not welcome in my space and I will call you out on it or I will leave.

I won’t lump anyone into a category just because of what they look like.

Being outraged isn’t enough!
Using your voice to stand up to the nonsense is the only way to create change.

So to all my friends that are white I’ve got a challenge for you, the next time anyone speaks any racism, hate, or judgment that you open your mouth and tell them to hush their fuss!
My hope is your brave enough to speak out agains the bullshit in this world so that you might be the change.

You got to talk about the things that scare you!
I’m blessed by the Scipio’s and their love that they provided for me and many other kids in Logan county. They didn’t need money to be kind and to teach the matters of the heart.

I’m 46 years old and you better believe that when my world falls apart you can still find me right inside their living room.

My Dogs Perfect! What’s Wrong With Your Eyes?

In 2020 my eyes got softer and my heart got bigger. After adopting a special puppy into our lives I’ve learned so very much from being her mom.

I’ve also learned a lot about the way people respond to her. And like always it’s about them not about her.

Sure we could have bought a designer dog that costs a lot of money and that didn’t come with certain challenges.

But when I met Karuna I fell in love with everything that she’s about. She doesn’t know she’s any different and that in itself should teach us all a lesson about ourselves.

The way you see the world and the people in it has everything to do with the way you were shaped.

Soft eyes are needed now more then ever. And with those eyes comes compassion and understanding and kindness.

Karuna is here to teach us all about why being different isn’t a bad thing. In fact it’s the very thing the world needs more of.

When you look at Karuna and the world do you see her with soft eyes?

I hope you ponder this thought as your weekend progresses and that you take the time to shape your spirit so your eyes can be a little softer.

The Truth Tellers Were Born For This

Good morning beautiful souls. I hope your all safe and well and doing the best that you can with the current situation you’ve been given.

As the world continues to be in chaos I knew that I had to write to you this morning. My hearts breaking for George Floyd and his family today and I’d like to take this moment to send them some light and love.

I know there’s nothing I can do to change that situation so I’ll continue to pray for peace for all involved. But I will tell you this, if you sit by and watch something happen and you don’t intervene then you my friends are also an accomplice.

Let’s take this back just a few notches and see where it all begins. I think it starts with first being able to understand what’s morally right and wrong. (Understand this has nothing to do with the worldly ways)

I do not hang out with people that gossip about others, because I fully understand the power of my words. Gossip is cheap and easy and bullshit if you ask me. It takes no courage to jump in and make fun of someone else.

It’s like the blind leading the blind down a path that makes the insecure gossiper somehow feel powerful, but there’s no power in gossip.

Your power lies in your ability to directly stand up and say “No, that’s not OK!” A real simple way to stop the gossip that’s around you would be to simply say “Does (so & so) know how your talking about them right now?”

Chances are that person is not going to continue degrading the other person because you’ve just used your voice and you’ve let them know that your not ok with the topic of conversation.

I admire the person that’s strong enough to say no to the bully’s. That understands that midlife sure as hell ain’t about fitting in, it’s about standing up and showing up like never before.

I don’t want people in my life that think being mean and talking about others for any reason is ok. I guard my space, my heart and my time and so should you.

After all you are the sum of the 5 people with spend the most time with.

I was born for this decade, living a life from the inside out and understanding everything I need is already inside me.

Be a truth teller not a sheep!

Love you

A spiritual guide to navigating 2020

Good afternoon friends!

As we continue on our journey into the unknown I was lead to write you a blog about how exactly to navigate the next year.

If your not a spiritual soul, then this is not for you. As a yoga teacher and a heart and hair shaper I often find that the only problems in our lives are the ones that we create ourselves. Humans are addicted to suffering and they are trapped in their own heads causing their own insanity.

With that being said, if your into learning how to be happy in the midst of the mess then keep on reading.

One of the very first things you must learn to do is to practice acceptance. This might be an ongoing process for quite sometime.Even if it’s 1,000 times a day, you must learn to accept whatever’s going on. If you do not accept it, you will waste a shit ton of energy on something that you can’t control. You will be a slave to your own thoughts, and you my friends are NOT your thoughts.

The next thing you should do is to let go of all judgments. This is a hard one, I understand completely, because we’ve been taught to judge. But judgment keeps us from seeing and from understanding and it always comes from a place of ego and fear. Judgment never comes from the heart, it’s an attribute of the head and like I told you in the beginning this is a spiritual thing.

After releasing your judgments a million times a week, then I want you to work on your victim mode.

What’s that you might ask?!?!?!?

It’s making your loss out to be more then someone else’s. It’s not fully understanding that everyone is in the same boat because somehow you’ve got it worse.

It’s never being happy about anything and always, always complaining about someone or something.

Victim mode is yet another veil of the ego that keeps you away from the heart. When your living your life awake you understand fully that nothing anyone does is because of you. People are people and they will do whatever they choose to do according to their own level of spirituality.

When people react versus respond this will help you understand where they are on the field of emotional intelligence.

There’s no need to try to talk woo woo with logic because those worlds don’t collide.

Guard your hearts friends and learn to do what’s best for your family. There’s absolutely no comparisons to what is right for each us, simply because we’re all different for a reason.

Now you get to decide what’s truly important in your life and to understand exactly where your self worth and your self love come from.

Outside In?

Or

Inside Out?

You guys are amazing and brave and bad ass and olive you.

Straight Out Of Quarantine

Good morning friends!

I almost feel human again. We went out and enjoyed some live music and a food truck at a beautiful little winery a few miles away.

Mr. Maxwell came out to play

The sun was shining and it felt absolutely amazing to be around people and positive energy.

Everyone was soooooo chill and happy to be out. It was the absolute perfect evening and all of our cups are full this morning.

Do you remember what it feels like to roll the windows down and jam on the highway to your favorite music while everyone’s screaming the words at the top of their lungs?!?

Because that’s what we did on our way home, except for when we passed the po po. Then we stopped dancing for a spilt second before continuing in full pit bull style.

Girl time
Is the best time

I know this entire year has been kind of screwy, but it really makes you appreciate the little things. We’re far from done with the virus but we are most certainly moving on with our lives.

In July I’m going to graduate from yoga teacher training and I couldn’t be more excited to teach love. Of course there were times when I thought we couldn’t continue our training but it turns out nothing can stop love.

Someone made their first tik tok last night and it wasn’t me

The virus stole so much from us, but now it’s time to heal and to learn how to move forward. We have all suffered loss and we’ve all experienced a big ass trauma together so we can all experience healing together.

We now have to decide the best way to navigate our futures. Everyone gets to decide for themselves and we shouldn’t judge others for doing what’s best for them. If you want to wear a mask then wear one but if you don’t then don’t.

It’s ok to make choices for our own families that differ from others. It’s an amazing feeling to be able to feel excited again and to have fun with those that we love.

What’s the first thing your going to do when the suns shining and your aloud a little freedom for fun?

I hope whatever it is that it makes your heart smile.

I love you friends

Your brave and bold and amazing and you just handled some very heavy shit in an amazing way and I’m proud of you.

May 2020

It’s May and it’s my birthday week. Was it different because of quarantine?! It sure was, but I’ve got to tell you the truth friends, it was also my favorite birthday to date.

Early morning surprises from my tribe

I didn’t have to go anywhere to feel loved, because it just kept showing up at my front door.

Then the very next day after my birthday, I was able to return to the salon and work for the first time since March.

FLY:First Love Yourself

So of course I was jumping for joy and excited as all get out and had to make a silly Tik Tok to capture the moment.

One of the weirdest things that happened yesterday was seeing my calendar still stuck in March.

It was Erie AF! It gave me chills, and I was like that’s absolutely insane. It was almost like time was standing still for the last 7 weeks even though it really wasn’t.

So now that we’re ready to move into a new phase I wanted to warn you of a few things.

The world is going to get crazier and crazier as more people need someone to blame and to hate.

I wish everyone could just accept this summer is going to be different and stop trying to make everything the same when absolutely nothing is ever going to be the same again. (Thank the Lord)

The same was worn out, over scheduled, and lacking the basics of a happy healthy family life.

People were being used and things were being loved and now it’s time to get back to the heart of what truly matters in this life and that’s relationships.

I will not live my life in fear and afraid. What if you only had one month left to live? Would you spend it hiding behind a mask and not hugging your friends?!?

I wouldn’t!

I would have as much fun in the homes and yards of the people I love. I would hug harder, laugh louder, and tell the people I love why I love them and I would do it more often.

I will not waste the summer worrying about what I have to lose when I’ve already gained so much of what I truly needed.

Guard your hearts 💕

Guard your minds 💜

And spend time with those who make you better not bitter.
