If we’re not feeling, we’re not healing.
Hi my loves!
I spent the past week learning how to hold ceremonial space for breathwork. Twenty six of us gathered to learn the magic of creating circles for healing, community, and deep connection. As we learned to dive into the support and reverence of the great spirit and our breath, we learned that the true nature of our offering was vulnerability, humility, and service. I continue to be cracked opened each time I show up to participate and learn with such high vibration humans. We are here to heal ourselves, and each other… To step into loving unconditionally and feeling fully. I am reminded of the gift it is to be held in such a safe container of realness- where showing up authentically and in your full, true expression is honored and required. Breathing is feeling. Breathing continues to amaze me- the layers keep peeling back, the downloads keep dropping in, and we keep breathing to keep feeling… And, through feeling we begin to step into deeper healing and understanding. Through this understanding, we begin to see that our experiences aren’t so different and we are all longing for a deeper sense of belonging, connection, unity, and love. My heart bursts open with gratitude for the all the loving beings who continue to step into roles of leadership to share their lightwork of rising consciousness and healing. I believe in the power of us… collectively rising and bringing forth more awareness, love, and unity.
The breath is so simple, yet holds such profound healing capacity! I know we are breathing all the time- yet so rarely take time to consider the quality of our breath… Which is so interesting to me since without the breath, we cease to exist. So, this life force, our most potent medicine tool- deserves some attention. How we breathe is how we live… The breath shows us where we need to feel more and heal more- and for that, I am so thankful. What a gift.
Sending so much love to all my breath keepers and teachers. I am so excited to begin sharing and empowering others to feel more, breathe more, and step into their highest light and fullest potential.
Full moons offer completion and letting go… and just like the breath, we know that as soon as we exhale and let go, we create more space to inhale and expand. Space to grow requires letting go. Notice the beautiful perfection of the relationship of breath- inhales are not complete without exhales. The relationship is united in perfect balance and necessity. May we continue to seek that balance in all of our endeavors: trusting that when we let go- it will all be okay. We are held, supported, and safe.
Love you all to the moon. Thank you for being in my world.

Copaiba | Unveiling
This oil is my ceremony oil, an oil of sacred, mystical essence. This oil invites us to open with vulnerability and awareness to our shadow sides so that we may discover a more whole essence of being. If we are not feeling, we are not healing: and when we are called to Copaiba, we are being asked to step into the light and begin unraveling and peeling back the layers of ourselves to release low frequency vibrations such as guilt, shame, inadequacy, or unworthiness. Learning to see clearly and with kind honesty our patterns, defaults, cycles, and shadows with the vision of healing and growth allows us to step into our present being with forgiveness and unconditional love. We connect with the Divine, Source, Spirit- to be reminded of our true essence and wholeness, to be reminded that we are not walking this path alone, and to be shown the higher message of our life. Copaiba offers us deep forgiveness and an offering of peace for any past doings- so that we may walk into the light of transformation and our true magnificence that is true, radiant love.
Negative Emotions: Shame, guilt, regret, less-than, unworthy, suppressed emotions
Positive Properties: Worthy, self-aware, clear vision and clarity, forgiven, redefinition of self, divine purpose
Copaiba can help soothe anxious feelings and it can be applied to the skin to promote a clear, smooth complexion. Taken internally, Copaiba essential oil supports the health of the cardiovascular, immune, digestive, nervous, and respiratory systems. Although Copaiba does not contain psychoactive cannabinoids, the main component caryophyllene may be neuroprotective and have cardiovascular and immune benefits. It’s also a powerful antioxidant that promotes immune health.
If you want more information on how to incorporate more essential oil loving into your life, holler- I’d love to help. Top quality essential oils at whole sale costs is also cool! Send me a note if you want more information.

Moon Musings & Horoscopes
She is water
Powerful enough to drown you
Soft enough to cleanse you
Deep enough to save you. – Adrian Michael.
♓️ FULL MOON IN PISCES ♓️ .
Tonight the Full Moon lands in the water sign, Pisces. This is a very cleansing Full Moon; powerful enough to shift your vibration after you wade through some turmoil and possibly tears.
Pisces is the most spiritual sign of the zodiac. Her energy invites us to step back from our emotions, our reactions, and our thoughts to observe them. In this observation we discover that these things do not define us. We are not our sadness, our frustration or our self-doubt. These are just temporary states visiting us. Instead, we are the essence of the universe, connected to everything, simply experiencing a human form and all of its conditions.
If there ever was a time to meditate, today is it. Spend time witnessing your emotions and your thoughts. Give them attention but resist the urge to react to them. Align with Pisces to observe and heal them. Feel the water element cleansing away the energy you no longer wish to carry. Remember that you are not your feelings or your thoughts. Take away their power to control you by calling them out of the shadows. See them, feel them and hear them but change how you interact with them. Choose a different reaction today and as the Full Moon rises tonight, transform into a higher vibration of yourself. – Spirit Daughter
✳︎ Full M◯◯N in P I S C E S ✳︎ “A magical full moon will illuminate the night sky on Saturday, Sept. 14 at exactly 12:33 a.m. ET. Glimmering brightly in the mystical sign of Pisces, the emotional meaning of the #harvestfullmoon has everything to do with trusting the universe.
This full moon is taking place during #virgoseason which, coincidentally, is also referred to as the season of the harvest. Whenever there’s a full moon, the moon sits directly opposite the sun. So, if the sun is in meticulous Virgo, where would the moon be? When the sun opposes the moon, it is a symbol of the divine masculine (sun) and feminine (moon) energies. This is also a call for balance. If the sun is in Virgo, the full moon will be in the dreamy sign of Pisces.
Sitting alongside its elusive planetary ruler, Neptune, this lunation will be nothing short of spiritually enlightening. It’s interesting because full moons typically bring things to light, but Neptune rules Pisces and the essence of this zodiac sign has everything to do with the spiritual realm. Pisces’ mutable water governs the universal consciousness that exists within each and every one of us. It is compassionate, healing, mystical, and highly intuitive. Do you have faith? If so, where does your faith lie? In a challenging aspect to expansive Jupiter, aka Pisces’ traditional ruler, this full moon will serve as a spiritual culmination of sorts. Hint: Think back to the new moon in Pisces that took place in March 2019.
Themes such as faith, spirituality, boundaries, mysticism, creative inspiration, sacrifice, and forgiveness will be top of mind during this time. However, despite the ethereal-like essence of this zodiac archetype, this lunation serves as a reminder to surrender to the universe and trust the process. For more context on the effects of this lunation, check which astrological house belongs to Pisces in your birth chart. This is where you will likely experience deep clarity and spiritual fruition.
Bright blessings.” -words by Valerie Mesa
Full Moon is Friday, September 13 at 10:32 PM Mountain Daylight Time (MDT). Take this full moon time to integrate and balance your own will with the greater will of your essence and spirit. Set the intention to align the two as we gather more energy and drive. Revisit the routines and habits of your life that support you in health, work, relationships, creative projects, personal expression, security, adventure etc. Are you getting your needs met?
Set or reset commitments, including a commitment to spirit, to support your future vision, and then use the energy of the full moon to feed that greater vision. As much as you can be inspired by the possibilities during this time, it is also important to keep track of critical details so that your container continues to be secure, protected and solid.
“All systems go” is the theme during this time and hopefully you have worked enough with your resistance to will, aggression and your own masculine to take advantage of the dynamic and active support for manifesting available. There is great potential during this time to bring in something more expansive and see results of stretching your imagination, inspiration and creativity. New ideas are just around the corner with an invitation to commit to something you may have never imagined before.
This is also a time you will be rewarded for using your intuition rather than any rational and limited thought process. Focus on beauty as a way to keep your imagination and spiritual inspiration moving forward. As the need to have good boundaries against the collective negativity grows, one of your commitments should be to NOT be critical and judgmental towards the collective and what is “out there” but look instead towards how you can improve your own life.
Book Recommendation: Training in Tenderness: Buddhist teachings on Tsewa, the radical openness of heart that can change the world.
A little guide to cultivating tsewa: the loving warmth of heart from which the awakened mind arises–from the popular Buddhist teacher and author of The Intelligent Heart.
This is a call to a revolution of heart. In Tibetan Buddhism, it is taught that one of the most essential qualities of enlightenment is tsewa, a form of warm energy and openness of heart. It is the warmth we express and receive through empathy with others, especially those closest to us. In this compact gem of a book, Dzigar Kongtrul opens the door to this life-changing energy and shows us how to transform our attitude toward ourselves and those around us through its practice. And through its practice, we can actually heal our fractured world.
This is a guide to the building blocks of compassion and the purest and deepest form of happiness. And with these tools, we can awaken the most powerful force in the world—a tender, open heart.
