🔹 over the last month, I've taken a break to properly address my personal state. Lots of necessary change occurring. .
🔹 I do feel tons more accountable for my physical, spiritual and emotional being. It doesn't make life easier, it just makes me a more realistic vehicle for the surrounding terrain. I am in great shape, in these terms. .
🔹 There is a subtle calm before a storm taking place. I'm gathering my raw materials and setting up for the next push to be greater than ever. .
🔹End of an Era 🎶 will be publsihed as a 3 song ep soon and made available. One hand happy to provide it, on the other happy to get away and move on. I'm a habitual writer. .
🔹 direct efforts to be more approachable and transparent with my base / audience and just people in general, are certainly being pursued. It's manifesting in the micro content and on the macro level, as well. .
🔹 of course, the new music for the future is certainly different and unlike anything I've entertained prior. It's crazy how noticeably on point things get when you make peace with yourself and your environment, and just let yourself occur and cancel out self-censorship with self-awareness.
. ➡ I'm watching my life the same way you watch plants grow when you water them: One day at a time, friends. 🌿 @tunecore @bmi .
Imagine your heart as a garden 🌸🌻Tend to it as though it feeds you. Water it as though you thirst for something more. If you pick its flowers plant more in their place and treat everyone else’s heart the same. .
There are so many exciting things happening in life right now. We are so blessed and thankful for the journey God has led us on. Choosing to follow the path of God won't always be easy. There will definitely be challenges along the way, but it is soo worth every second of it because he loves us so much and always guides us in the right direction. We just need to choose to follow him. He has shown me many times over that His way is the best way and that patience is key because his timing is always right.

This is what happens when you take a boy to get #icecream and it's past their bedtime. 🍦 This one's always a cute mess, I love him anyway! 🥰
Mantras are words or phases that we can repeat often in order to help us focus, be present and get anchored.
I'll be sharing a MOMtra here every week for 11 weeks (cuz 11 happens to be my favorite number) AND because I'm counting down to my next online Positive Discipline class! We start in just 2 weeks!!
Registration for this transformational parenting class is now OPEN! Check it out! Link in bio @vibhaarora_
And if you join the iParent Plus Nest, (link in bio) you'll have access to a special registration link that will save you $50 off registration.
Spaces will be limited so we can keep the group small and personal. I hope to "see" you there!
Now on to this week's Momtra:
My hope is that these MOMtras will be as helpful to you as they have been to me.
This is one to keep close at hand to help guide us through our parenting ups and downs.
Everything we say and everything we do has power and impact.
With each interaction with our child we are either bridging gaps and creating connection or we are deepening emotional distance and constructing barriers that prevent us from bonding with one another.
That doesn't mean we can't have boundaries.
We can. We must.
However, we can choose how we approach a conversation with our kids. We can decide to focus more on the long term relationship instead of the short term mistake, misbehavior or misunderstanding.
We can teach through connection instead of punish with isolation.
Parenting can be both Messy and Magical at the same time.
Follow Your Heart.
Shem nodded, and breathed deeply and easily for the first time in a long time. “You know my desires—for learning. For knowledge, and the ability to—”
“To learn the magicks,” Henri finished for her. “To continue what your aunts began. It’s in your blood, Shem. Both sides of your family have been cursed with magicks.”
“Is it a curse?”
He studied her carefully. “I know little of it, though my own family practiced, generations back, as you know. I have stepped away from it. But I do know that it can be blessing or curse. I have seen the effects of both, and this house is scarred with the manifestations of choice. There is always choice, Shem, no matter how strong the forces that compel you.” Like this fantastical short fiction? Go get the full-length novel, The Rising Scythe!

Transcendance in Consciousness. We are heading towards the end of phase 3. 2020 commences 4th phase. Are you CONSCIOUSLY feeling the shift? Your experiences will validate these changes. Do not resist to change for the better--the universe is expanding and so are you! For those who are resisting to change provided by the everyday energies, you are placing yourself in a more challenging position--old beliefs and old systems are shedding. The new embodiment of consciousness have already taken place through those individuals who have been called to spiritually awaken since the beginning, more are getting awakened as the days go by. The incoming children being born between 2020- 2029 will play a significant role in the New World. What's in store for us? We will be learning and will be trained by these advanced, highly conscious children to act from the heart and mind, our Higher Self (not the ego/brain). Heart and mind coherence.

Please understand this:
Sometimes holding on does more damage than letting go.
It’s painful to admit that you’ve been lying to yourself.
It hurts to admit that you’ve been accepting toxic behavior and, therefore, are partly to blame for the suffering you’ve endured.
It hurts to come to terms with the fact you set the expectations they didn’t meet;
that you offered forgiveness when there was no apology;
that you didn’t speak up;
that you kept giving without receiving in return.
It hurts to realize that you don’t have what it takes to be the “hero” you thought you could be.
It hurts to admit that you can’t change someone who doesn’t believe they have a problem.
Above all, it’s painful to let go when you’ve invested so much.
Like an intern working overtime for a position that was never available in the first place, it’s devastating to realize you’ve been investing time, energy, and love into something that never actually existed.
It hurts to know you gave everything you had to someone who gave nothing in return.
It hurts to know that you tried your best and it still wasn’t enough.
It hurts to realize that your best will never be enough.
It hurts to admit that you had choices and you chose wrong-
I get it; it HURTS!
But the great thing about LIFE is that as long as you’re STILL breathing, you have the opportunity to make better decisions and produce better outcomes!
You don’t HAVE to tolerate hurt, pain, abuse, devastation.
Make peace, and let go.
You deserve better.
They are the reason I read all the labels.
They are the reason I do all the research.
They are the reason I watch what we put in our bodies.
They are the reason I use certain soaps and deodorant.
They are the reason we avoid prescriptions meds and the long list of side effects at all cost.
They are the reason I take my Plexus.
They are the reason I share Plexus.
They are my everything, and I am theirs.
I know how tragic it can be when a parent is unhealthy or tragic sudden death is. I walked that young.
Now I use all that hurt to help myself be who they need and to help others be healthier too.
I know what goes in our bodies and what I share with them to put in theirs is without a doubt good for us and super high quality. .
“Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live”
Taking care of our bodies means fueling ourselves with healthy foods, exercising, being around uplifting people, doing more of what we love. It means learning to be still and find time to rest in the midst of constant daily movement and activities.
It’s important that we take care of our bodies. What we allow into our space has an impact on us. We get to choose carefully what we allow into our lives in order to protect our bodies. Which then leads to protecting our minds, and our spirits.
When we choose to walk away from anything that brings us down, and choose to step into and engulf ourselves in the things that fill us up and lift us up, we notice how much power we actually have.
What we give power to has power over us. I choose to give power to the things that protect my mind body and soul and lift me up. It’s by doing that that I get my power back. And by that I am able to help others do the same.
There’s power in positivity. It’s good energy 🤩🤩

I keep saying we all have choices.
Get up. Move on. Or stay stuck.
It doesn't matter what happened. What's happening. Or what's going to happen. Choose wisely for yourself and be better.
The money is nice, but the impact you make with that money is so much better!
What impact are you making with your side hustle?
Some ideas: build block homes in Guatemala, find local animal shelters and provide food/medicine/water/toys, mission trips, build that new cancer ward at the children's hospital, build schools for women in Pakistan, dig wells for water in Africa, feed and clothe the homeless in your area, send underprivileged children to Disney, buy new sports equipment for your local community center.... Add your own ideas or personal stories in the comments below!
Our Decisions Determine our Destiny.
What you focus on right now is where your energy flows. Don’t focus on the problems and stay stuck there. Focus on what you want to draw the actions towards where you want to go.
What meaning do you give what you are focusing on. An example, is the loss of a job the end of the world or is it a new beginning? Look for the possibilities even in the most difficult struggles. The end isn’t always here, it’s often guiding us to new opportunities.
What emotions do you put towards what you focus on? If you’re struggling with your weight are you depressed about it, or are you excited for the opportunity to go and workout and find healthy recipes? Switch the emotional energy you put to all your decisions so you aren’t negative thinking and are putting positive attitudes towards it. Are you putting pain or pleasure to your thoughts?? Pain keeps you stuck, find the joys in doing something the go DECIDE to do it!
IT’S EASY TO RESENT WHAT OTHERS HAVE WHEN YOU DON’T EVEN KNOW WHAT YOU WANT FOR YOURSELF.
Why not eat yo’ greens instead of being greeeeenn with envy!? 👏🏼🥒🥬🥦🥑🥗
When you overlook the fact that most people only reach their goals by investing time, money and effort to get there, it’s more likely that you’ll resent their achievements.
It’s easy to look at a professional athlete and say, “I wish I could do that.” But do you really? Do you wish you got up and worked out twelve hours a day? Do you really wish your entire income rested solely upon your athletic abilities that will decline as you age? Do you really wish you could give up eating the foods you love so that you can stay in shape? Do you really wish you could give up spending time with friends and family to keep practicing year-round?
Write down your definition of success. When you’re tempted to resent other individuals who are working toward their own definitions of success, reminder yourself of your own definition. Your journey is unique and it’s way more important that you recognize and focus on that.
Share some definitions with me in the comments! 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻
🗣 He loves you too much. This speaks. A true King is known by his actions. Pray for discernment to see the King within him. Listen. Work. Wait. Be happy. Flourish, grow, build, teach, learn, experience, travel, speak, LIVE. Do everything that’s good for you and trust that God has your love story written. Be encouraged.

Why do the fragile wish that they were not
because we live on an earth
that favours those who are strong
but I want to go against
what is expected of us
and tell you to embrace your soft
this world needs people like you
who can catch a raindrop
and help flowers to bloom
you might be surprised
to find that those who are strong
are soft hearts in disguise
that have just worked out
how to belong
I’m not telling you
to go do the same
just to embrace the pain
because without the hurt
there would be no art
and without the fragile
there would be no earth
your soft heart
is a blessing
not a curse.
