Unplugged

Sunbeam

Sometimes, the burnout let himself be known only when it is already too late... when you are exhausted mentally, when the body is just following even less than its usual.

My husband I and I have been working a lot in the past months and we have no support system to wind down (except for our glass of wine at dinner... which is not a real good helper), so we decided it was okay to take the girls out of school for a week (but they took work to do so they do not get behind) and head the road to go to Portland for several days after some time in our neighbour State of Washington.

As I am typing, we are in our final stretch, and will stay in this hotel until we go home on Saturday.

So just an advice... take care of yourself before everything give way.

This year has been big for me in learning to listen within, to go deeper into self-care, while leaving Guilt at the door. Hot baths for hours, rest, better eating, morning walks, self-portraiture... these are my go to when I feel life is becoming too full for my heart.

Life visioning. Words spinning. On the floor.

They said

CG1I decided, at last minute, to jump and sign up for Hannah Marcotti’s online class called Community Grace. See, I have been following Hannah and her work for a while and she whispers to my Soul and amazes me at several levels. I even told her I wanted to be her BFF ahah *oh yes I did say that*. A Sister told me praises about it and that she was already signed up. A familiar faces. An unexpected «I love her too» and that was it.

In the prompt #3, Hannah invited us to gather words said to us in our already existing community. By our friends, our lovers, our family… whoever. And to focus on them. To let them sink in. Their meaning. Their beauty.

I wanted to share some of them with you today.

She said, we’re in this together.

He said, you are stronger than you think.

They said, Aho.

He said, thank you for being a wonderful friend.

She said, I see you.

She said, you are not a monster.

She said, you need a break; come here, my door is wide open.

She said, and baby girl you shine.

She said, I love your hair.

She said, you’re beautiful.

She said, you are one special Sister.

She said, you are the best mama a girl can have.

She said, yes of course you love them.

She said, there are no coincidence.

She said, we’re Old Souls.

She said, prepare to Rock & Shine !

She said, i thought i would just tell you how much your color shines my days up and our lands.

She said, You are awesome. You are interesting. You are smart. You are beautiful! oh yeah, and you are magic !

Welcoming 29

Today is the day I turn 29. Well, with the 9 hour time difference (I was born in France), I was officially born on the 19th, but it is okay to celebrate for two days, right ?

10367804_10152739248068828_2947073371674276863_n

There is so much hope for this new personal year. So much dreams I wish to fulfill, or at least to jumpstart. So much love to spread.
28 was not an easy year but I lost 12kgs (± 26lbs), I’ve been letting go of some heavy blocks, I am integrating my spirituality back into my life and owning who I am, my husband and I celebrated 10 years of love for each other… so much love to be spread around.
However, I need to continue to learn to take it at my own pace and that this actually is okay to seem slow.

Je me défais enfin de certains blocages, je renoue avec qui je suis et donc avec ma spiritualité, j’ai fêté mes 10 ans d’amour avec mon mari… Tellement d’amour à partager. Cependant, je veux enfin être ok avec le fait de faire les choses à mon rythme même lorsque cela me paraît lent et que je voudrais desespérément que cela aille plus vite.

Welcome, 29.

At 29, I wish to connect more with my Kindred Sisters, face to face when possible.
At 29, I want to be near the water more often.
At 29, I desire more peace in my Soul, and more peace in my home.
At 29, I wish to spread love on a constant basis.
At 29, I strive to be happy inside and out.
At 29, I make rituals and prayer part of my daily practice.
At 29, I will finally open myself up more to guidance.
At 29, my art will take new heights and reach many many places.
At 29, I let my True Self shine and be seen.

Welcome, 29.

Welcome September, month of celebration !

IMG_20140903_144245

I usually love September… back to school with new supplies, excitement of new beginning, my birthday, still Sunshine and not quite too rainy yet…

Well, this year is different. The BC teachers are on strike, have cut last school year from its last two weeks and there is no back to school date as of today… so I have two girls to keep busy (thank you Universe for friends in the neighboorhood !).

September is the end of Summer, and at the same time the beginning of a new cycle, welcoming Fall. This is always a month of personal celebration as it is the end of a year and beginning of a new one for me, I love birthdays in general. Time for me to cast new dreams and wishes and surrender them to the Universe, trusting that what is for my Highest Good will manifest itself.

My time in the Studio is limited but it allows me to cherish each second I spend in there with my music on, my special altars, and my paints. Playing, trusting, allowing. There is something big shifting and as always, it comes with a great deal of resistance on my end.

I am gathering questions for the third episode of my creative vlog *Scraps of Life* so if there is anything you would like me to answer or talk about, please leave me a comment. I’m open and you know that speaking my Truth(s) is part of my path, don’t be shy.

Tonight is the last Super Full Moon for a while. She is already big and very shiny in the sky. She makes me utterly happy, it is hard to explain. Today, she is in Pisces and makes everything more emotional and… watery. Gathering my witchy things and trying to sort what my desires truly are so I can map them.

What have you been up to lately ? What are your wishes for this September ?

Right Now in my world.

The weather is grey and gloomy for what could be our first day of Summer Break…

Grenouille is doing yoga in the living room.

Koala is playing with her Barbies in her bedroom.

I am catching up on the lessons I have not watched yet from SoulFood Class.

I am thinking about what I want to do with my art, the directions I want to explore, the destinations I want to reach.

I am fighting a strong headache. For the 5th day in a row.

I just subscribe to a free psychology class from Yales that I will be able to listen to while working.
