How I became a Warrior
Once, I ran from fear
so fear controlled me.
Until I learned to hold fear like a newborn.
Listen to it, but not give in.
Honour it, but not worship it.
Fear could not stop me anymore.
I walked with courage into the storm.
I still have fear,
but it does not have me.
Once, I was ashamed of who I was.
I invited shame into my heart.
I let it burn.
It told me, "I am only trying
to protect your vulnerability".
I thanked shame dearly,
and stepped into life anyway,
unashamed, with shame as a lover.
Once, I had great sadness
buried deep inside.
I invited it to come out and play.
I wept oceans. My tear ducts ran dry.
And I found joy right there.
Right at the core of my sorrow.
It was heartbreak that taught me how to love.
Once, I had anxiety.
A mind that wouldn't stop.
Thoughts that wouldn't be silent.
So I stopped trying to silence them.
And I dropped out of the mind,
and into the Earth.
Into the mud.
Where I was held strong
like a tree, unshakeable, safe.
Once, anger burned in the depths.
I called anger into the light of myself.
I felt its shocking power.
I let my heart pound and my blood boil.
Listened to it, finally.
And it screamed, "Respect yourself fiercely now!".
"Speak your truth with passion!".
"Say no when you mean no!".
"Walk your path with courage!".
"Let no one speak for you!"
Anger became an honest friend.
A truthful guide.
A beautiful wild child.
Once, loneliness cut deep.
I tried to distract and numb myself.
Ran to people and places and things.
Even pretended I was "happy". But soon I could not run anymore.
And I tumbled into the heart of loneliness.
And I died and was reborn
into an exquisite solitude and stillness.
That connected me to all things.
So I was not lonely, but alone with All Life.
My heart One with all other hearts.
Once, I ran from difficult feelings.
Now, they are my advisors, confidants, friends,
and they all have a home in me,
and they all belong and have dignity.
I am sensitive, soft, fragile,
my arms wrapped around all my inner children.
And in my sensitivity, power.
In my fragility, an unshakeable Presence.
My whole life as a young, dumb, International Model I wanted a 25 inch waist. But I was just 5'7 and 15 lbs. heavier than I am now. Yet there I was landing World Contracts and jet setting,...3 inches shorter, many years older and way more meat on my bones than my 14 year old 5"10 competition. But the Truth is I never cared too much about modeling, I just used that Industry to educate myself and to expose myself to the real world. My family is Minnonite so there was no options for Woman in that type of family other than to pop out kids and be a slave to your husband. I was shown nothing by any Woman in my family. I had to inquire what my period was and was handed 4 hard cover books published by Minnonite Men on Womans sexuality. So I left the modeling world after I attained what I needed from that Industry.....
The second I as a woman said I was no longer going to fit into my families vision for me or the Modeling Worlds Vision of me, I literally dropped all the excess body fat. As soon as I said, "Fuck it.". The World handed me my Golden Ticket, but I no longer even care to have that ticket.
Now I eat anything and everything. I never order diet anything. I ask for extra bacon, o never work out. I smoke weed and drink. I'm real. I'm my own perfection.
Let go. Seek your Truth. Trailblazers my sisters!
Spirituality has got a bad reputation of quackery, gullible people, fake healing and lazy people with vision boards.⠀
I’ve seen a lot of the spiritual market and I have to say, very often, I agree.⠀
However, we should be careful not to throw out the baby with the bathwater.⠀
Practices like yoga, meditation, and psychedelic medicine have a scientifically proven track record of lasting positive results in peoples’ lives.⠀
So why is it that a lot of people cringe when you say “Spiritual”?⠀
Maybe the problem is in the word.⠀
Everything from focussing on that Lamborghini you’ve always wanted, to acupuncture to amazon curanderos and ayahuasqueros are all considered “spiritual”.⠀
This while all these “New Age Lightworkers” and marketers are a completely different kind than Shamans for example.⠀
When we say “Spiritual”, a lot of people think about the practices, while the focus should be on the “goals” it has. That’s what makes it spiritual.⠀
It’s this internal search for peace, love, happiness, creativity, and connection.⠀
The definition should be about the WHY, not the HOW.⠀
All practices are meant to get you closer to those goals, even though some work better than others.⠀
And to be honest, to me it seems like a lot of people don’t want it to work. They just want a little tiny taste and then be part of the ‘club’.⠀
Because the real depts are too scary.⠀
I don’t blame them, it is scary.⠀
Still, I do get annoyed when I get back from traveling the depts of my subconscious and experiencing heaven and hell, and then hear people who once bought a crystal somewhere describe themselves as “spiritual”.⠀
However, I do understand that I probably come over in the same way to other people.⠀
Some self-mockery from time to time doesn’t hurt.⠀
“Just as treasures are uncovered from the earth, so virtue appears from good deeds, and wisdom appears from a pure and peaceful mind. To walk safely through the maze of human life, one needs the light of wisdom and the guidance of virtue.” - #buddha 🌸
ONLY 2 LEFT ‼️these will not be restocked. 👑
Queen Nefertiti- One of the most mysterious and powerful women in ancient Egypt, Nefertiti was queen alongside Pharaoh Akhenaten from 1353 to 1336 B.C. and may have ruled the New Kingdom outright after her husband’s death. 👑
U skladu sa mojim razumevanjem dobrobiti ali ne dovoljnosti motivacionih poruka, izbegavam da ih upotrebljavam..... U sustini bilo koja motivaciona recenica je kao mala doza anestezije koja nam prividno smanji bol ali ne resava problem. Posebno mi je zanimljivo kada razliciti ljudi razlicito posmatraju zivotni uspeh pa u skladu sa tim motivisu druge ljude kojima njihovi uspesi deluju krajnje bizarno... Jer izgleda da nije svaki Vortex - Vortex.... Ono sto kazem svojim klijentima je da zaborave na motivacije... jer svako ko ima dete skolskog uzrasta odlicno zna da ga kod kuce ne motivise da radi domace zadatke I da uci. Postoji ona cuvena recenica da dete mora da stvori radne navike. Kljucna rec je - navika.... Sve sto zelimo da promenimo u svom zivotu bilo na poslovnom, privatnom ili licnom planu dolazi od promena - odnosno stvaranja svakodnevnih navika. Ponavljanje odredjenog ponasanja I nacina delovanja, dovodi do ostvarenja zacrtanih ciljeva. Te promene se uvek odvijaju od unutrasnjosti naseg bica ka spoljasnosti... #josvoyage#dualtherapy#lifecoaching#spiritualjunkie#enlightenment#lifequotes

I can still hear and feel your heart beat...even though we are miles- apart. Every breath that I take babe I'm holding onto- you. I know that our love is so damn Divine....and so damn true.
I close my eyes and I'm laying next to- you. Sweet memories of you smiling in my arms with your head resting on my- chest.
I'm searching for the right words...to the way you make my heart- beat. Babe I'm so deep...so deep in love with- you.
Weeping willows no longer cry and I can see the skyview while I'm holding onto you babe. From your lovely eyes...it's a beautiful point of view.
I can still hear and feel your heart beat...even though we are miles- apart. Every breath that I take I'm holding on...onto- you. I know that our love is so damn Divine....and so damn true.
Babe I'm searching for the right words... just to say what my heart feels when I'm holding on... onto- you.
I can still hear and feel your heart beat...even though we are miles- apart. Every breath that I take I'm holding on...onto you. I know that our love is so damn Divine....and so damn true.
Babe I'm holding onto you and I know that the skyview has never looked so lovely, so lovely from your eyes...it's a beautiful and just lovely point of- view.
Maybe one day I will find the right words. The right words to say just what my heart feels...when I'm with you. Never less my heart will always... always belong to- you.
I will always love holding you in my arms and loving this beautiful view...this beautiful view of- you. ***Follow My Writes*** ⚔️🛡️👑🛡️⚔️⚔️🛡️👑🛡️⚔️🛡️👑🛡️⚔️ #poetrycommunity#beautiful#canon#sun#mindset#spirituality#motivation#warriors#romantic#instagramhub#happyvalentinesday#mantra #♥️ #💙 #💚 #💜 #love#affirmations#healthylifestyle#soulmates#positivethinking#vibratehigher#motivationalquotes#realtalk#loveandlight#instagram#enlightenment#consciousness#poetsofinstagram#supreme

Click, click, click...goes the selector- switch. Body dropping kids dying within our city streets.Rounds popping banging by my ear. Shatter dreams of teenage loss...hell they died before they seen seventeen. War Zone are our city streets you can't trust the man you can't trust the heat. I once wrote of love to conquer hate. Like the messenger I was seeking peace. Motivating your mind and soul...patching up scars in holes. Revisiting our world history damn all the blood and tyranny. Mother's on their knees praying for their child to hold on...didn't get to say goodbye. I Salute because I know they are- gone. As a society we don't understand love because we never had to tolerate hate...never had to look down the barrel of a loaded shotgun as you got spit in your face. I only wanted to do good by God, Love, and Law to help save the human race. I write about love never to prove that I can but to say that I will....hell life is too damn short. Have you ever bare witness to a friends or a Comrade burn through a furnace in a cheap ass wooden- box? They say darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. I say sometimes you need a Warrior sometimes you need that- beast. ***Follow My Writes*** ⚔️🛡️♥️🛡️⚔️⚔️🛡️♥️🛡️⚔️ When good men do nothing... nothing good shall ever come.
