ALLOW FOR THE UNFOLDING
Let things happen through the beauty of the process. Just as a woman conceives, grows the baby, and then births the child; there is a gestation period. Just as you wouldn't want a child the day after conception, want to eat all of your meals today or you wouldn't want all of your orgasms at once, you don't want all of your desires at once, either. You want to spread out your desires. The joy of each thing in small incremental doses is where the deliciousness of life is.
Most folks wish to all of their desires at once, but when you realise the beauty of each little success, you'll begin to understand the process of unfolding, and you'll have much better life experiences.
Most affably yours til my next swim, Raquelxxx

I feel lost and heartbroken, what can I do to stop feeling like this? Love can be as addictive as cocaine and when we stop sustaining the addiction cold-turkey, we experience a myriad of withdrawal symptoms. You might have the urge to call your ex, stalk their profile or even do a sneaky drive-by — if you feel this urge call your friends to bring you back to Earth! It’s understandable that being without the huge presence of that person can make you feel like there’s a gap in your life; you now need to use that time and energy for yourself.

Full Moon Energies... A time for deep cleansing, releasing the old, and making room for the new.
I honoured this energy by tackling one of the messiest parts of my home... my office!
Stacks of old documents in the recycling, dust cleared, old books released, files organised, desk clean.
The act of cleansing and clearing always helps me open up the divine channels of inspiration and creativity. I'm looking forward to seeing what unfolds - with my music, my songwriting, and all other areas of my life as I continue this process and welcome in an abundance of new energy!
Not ready to show up on video yet? That's ok! I've got some tips for you to build up to it...⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In case you didn't know the Instagram algorithm is now MASSIVELY favouring videos, so one of the best ways to stay on top is to mix in some video content to your current strategy.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
However actually getting on video yourself can be really confronting! I'm still building up to it too, so we can go on this journey together 💕 Some solutions I've found are:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✨ Animated text posts. I create mine with Adobe Photoshop + After Effects BUT if you're not that technical an app like Adobe Spark can do the trick!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✨ Screen recording + voiceover. Did you know when you screen record you can record a voiceover at the same time? You may have to activate the option in control center (Google for instructions) and you're good to go. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I use Google slides, create a custom slideshow template to fit vertical phone screen dimensions, & screen record myself going through the slides & talking.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✨ Cut together some images. No voiceover needed! Instead of posting long-form content across a carousel you could cut slides into one video.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
📹 VIDEO LENGTH INFO 📹⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It's important to note there are time limits on how long videos can be. Those limits are:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- Stories: 15 seconds⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- Posts: 60 seconds⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- IGTV: 10 mins (some accounts can post longer but the criteria for allowing this is very vague)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There we have it! I highly recommend brainstorming some ways you can incorporate more feed videos (not just stories) into your content strategy 💕

We are all a little confused at times, and we are all – definitely – still learning. In fact the learning never stops, but that’s good. I adore learning 😁
Feeling very excited, nervous and a tad emotional. Watching hard work graft sweat & tears come to life over past 5 years.
2015 I learned my biggest business lesson you succeed by helping others and since then I've been trying to do just that. Ive invested time, effort & money and will continue to do so to bring clients, groups and organisations who I work with the service they deserve.
Resolvefit is my hub to house all the amazing things I get to call work so far with hopefully many more to come.
2019 has been crazy year filled with hard work & sacrifices but so worth it when you can help others create a life they love through fitness, mindset and coaching.
Align Your Life. This oracle deck – the Work Your Light cards by Rebecca Campbell – without fail gives me exactly the message I need to hear.
It might not always be what I want, but it will be what I need – even spitting out the same card again and again if I try to reshuffle!
This one came up as a message for all of us today (I believe), asking us to think about where we are in alignment with our truth, and what needs to change for us to get there.
One of the quickest ways to decide this is to come back to your values – those qualities you want to embody in the way you live your life, the feelings you want to have at the end of the day that tell you you’re following your heart, the moments that really matter to you.
Do you know what they are?
Could you define or describe them in a few words?
Do you know what they feel like in your body?
Can you give me examples of when you experience them?
Or perhaps you’ve got an idea of what they are but don’t know how to find and feel them more often?
You know there are changes to make to help you feel more aligned, but you don’t know where to start?
If this is the case, I can help. This is exactly what my mentoring packages are designed to tackle – to help you understand what’s really important to you, to give you greater clarity about what an aligned life would look and feel like, plus the tools to support you with practical actions and personal reminders for making the changes that will bring you more of those moments that matter.
I have space in my diary for new clients now, so just head over to my website via the link in my bio to find more information and book your first session. I can’t wait to hear from you.
Celebrating that feeling of ease, flow and joy of where I am right now.
Feeling more aligned, energised and confident, which has created this beautiful inner and outer peacefulness.
This hasn’t been an easy road, following your open heart isn’t meant to be.
What I do know, is you need to keep going, especially when it challenges you to step up and out of your comfort zone.
And by that I mean you don’t push through, you surrender to the whispers, be still, listen, trust and celebrate each beautiful step forward in your own unique magical way🙏🏻 If I can do this I know you can too.
Celebrate your journey😘🌷

One day you will know it is time. Time to leave the relationship, the job, the friend, the situation, the eating disorder. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You probably have had a friend, a parent, a sibling, a therapist, or someone who has provided their feedback on your situation. Why that job is NOT good for you. Or why your lifestyle choices are ruining your future. Why you need to leave him for good. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You won’t change until you wake up one day and decide. Decide it is your turn. And here’s the thing, you don’t need to hit rock bottom to decide. All it takes is a moment. A moment where you decide that it isn’t for you anymore. That you are done with everything that leaves you feeling less than. Decide.

Who's boss in your hood?
Quite often we forget that we ARE our thoughts, yes we create them. When we are on auto pilot they flick into default... What does your default mind sound like?
This is great to become aware of, just be curious and notice.... When your thoughts wander are they full of WONDERful ideas? Or do they try to run you down?
Thoughts are powerful so why not use them to help you along the way!
If you’re struggling with video confidence... watch this now! 😉

A dating profile that makes your life sound already "fulfilled" is a HUGE turn off for men.
Go ahead, talk about all of the wonderful things you have going on in your life. Talk about your fabulous friends, your kids, your job and your trips to the four corners of the earth.
But DON'T make your profile sound like your life is so full a man would to have to fit between all the things you have going on. In your profile, you should have a line that says something like, "Hey, I have this incredible life. I built it this way. And now the one missing piece is the right guy to share it with."
You also need to consider that the kind of man you want to date already has a full and rich life of HIS own. Like you, he has a wonderful job, kids, friends, hobbies, responsibilities... and he's going to want you to be willing to fit into HIS world. He'll want you to go to business dinners with him and become a part of his life, as well.

The frequency that an image holds speaks a thousand words...
I used to think a photo was just a photo and to be honest I’ve always hated photos and how I looked in them!!
I felt super awkward
Hated my smile
Arrrgh, all the things!
And then I started mentoring Anna and I truly started to understand and appreciate that an image holds and embodies the frequency of your higher self!
A few days ago, I got to experience first hand Anna’s magic when I had my first ever photo shoot (other than a few family photos here and there)!
Anna, you are the QUEEN of Images and I am so excited to work with you again and for more heart centred visionaries and leaders to experience your magic 🔮
The process you took me through prior to our shoot to actually call in my higher self and call forth the archetypes that wanted to play and be seen was so deep and so much fun!
The intention setting and visualisation process we did before we started shooting was more than I ever could have imagined and helped me get the most out of the experience
(Not to mention shift a whole lot of funkiness I’d been feeling prior)!
The way you held space for me as we were shooting made me feel so safe and so empowered
The playfulness, confidence, certainty and fun you brought to the space made my inner child so happy to play.
I felt like a goddess from start to finish and I certainly received my intentions and then some... one of which was to FALL IN LOVE with the process of having photos taken in a photo shoot
>>> if you’ve been wanting to upgrade the quality of your images to truly match the frequency of your higher self, then I have a gift 🎁 for you!
I’ve managed to twist Anna’s arm and convince her to open up some additional spaces in her busy shooting schedule in the next couple of months
So she’s put together something super special, where you and two friends can book her for the same investment it would be for a one person day shoot
Drop the word “𝐏𝐇𝐎𝐓𝐎” below if you want your images to be coded with the frequency of your higher self and I’ll connect you with Anna ❤️
〰️ TRUTH BOMB: Learning to love yourself isn’t a destination.
When I began this journey of inner love, I thought I’d reach a point where the inner work would seize. I thought when I loved myself unconditionally I’d never feel insecure, doubt myself, feel shame or regret again.
I’m at a point in my life where I do love myself unconditionally. I’m filled with so much inner love, that sometimes it overwhelms me (I’ve had numerous cries on my scooter for how in-love I am with myself & life 🙈)
I still experience those moments of insecurities. I’m still triggered by certain fears & doubts. Now, I no longer let those emotions or thoughts become part of my story. Instead, I’m able to acknowledge, accept them & let them go 💫 Right now, I’m in a space of expansion. Inner child wounds, traumas from the past, limiting & self-sabotaging beliefs have been coming to the surfacing one-after-the-other. And, this is where I get to put into practice the years of self-love. This is where I get to practice self-compassion & kindness. I’m able to take the observer’s seat & see them in their entirety. I see them as a teaching, as a lesson for my soul’s growth.
•• I’m able to love & accept them.
Over the years, I’ve learnt many powerful & proven techniques that have helped me let go of unworthiness, insecurities & self-doubt. I’ve built my self-esteem, have stepped into my feminine Power & have created a life that was a dream only 1 year ago.
I personally believe learning to love yourself is the greatest gift in life. So, if you’re feeling the call inside & ready to let go of those parts of you that are stopping you from loving yourself. If you’re ready to step out as your authentic Self & reclaim your Power, my Transform You Series is just for you! If you’d like to learn more drop a “🦋” below

All the Friday feels 💦 Because you can love your job and still be so freaking glad it’s the weekend, you know 🥳
I don’t have anything against Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday. Those days are full of so much more joy, purpose and passion than I ever imagined could be possible. I feel absolutely no need to e s c a p e those days in order to start living my best life on the weekend. My best life happens on a Tuesday just as much as it does on a Saturday. But there’s just something about Friday and knowing you don’t have to set an alarm the next morning that makes the day whole day feel so much sweeter!
Happy weekend, friends! ✨

DATE NIGHT was a success💕
Hard to believe school & the crazy chaos starts next week! Thankful for this guy to keep me sane & deal with my crazy chaos through it all! 💕
The transition from caterpillar to butterfly is not a pretty one. The original form is destroyed from the inside out in its creation. There is no other way. In fact any interruption or interference in this process destroys any hope for the butterfly to emerge. The struggle to transform and break free of its once protective casing is what builds the strength needed to fly.
It’s easy to look at a finished product and forget the price of achievement. It’s hard to be gentle and patient with our own transformations. Hard not to rush when the struggle gets messy. Hard to see every mistake as part of the learning process not as failure.
Today was a hard day. It felt like every time I turned around there was a reminder of shame and failure. I’ve returned to my nightly walks and been really loving the escape they provide, but tonight I found myself sobbing as deep fears came up. The darkest of my what ifs seemed to be keeping pace with my steps. What if it’s too late? What if I blew my chance at love? What if I’ve made too many mistakes? What if this book doesn’t make it? What if I’m risking it all and it fails? What if I try my hardest and it’s not good enough? What if I’m not good enough?
I thought of a brilliant professor I had in grad school, Faye, in a time of self doubt she told me that I had no choice.
Butterflies don’t stop mid metamorphosis because it’s hard, they instinctively know they are destined for more. Feel the fear and let it transform you, let them rise up so you can let them go. If this dream was not meant for you it wouldn’t scare you so much. #butterfly#transformation#metamorphosis#dreams#fears#latenightwalks#whatif#shame#learnfromyourmistakes#grace#begentlewithyourself#createalifeyoulove#lifecoach#embodiedwellness@jrni_co
🚫Let’s not strive for being “-er”, a.k.a, cheaper, faster, crunchier, better...
Today, you might be cheaper, faster, than that other guy next to you, but probably not tomorrow. 🤔 It’s a meaningless and endless race to the bottom.
Don’t do what others do like everyone else. Instead, step back, slow down, and take a breather! 🙃
Find out what your people truly care about and create something remarkable, THE BEST, for them.💫
You got what it takes, my friend!! 🙌🏻

No one else is going to beat you to the thing you want to do, there is enough for all. If one space is taken, another and a better one will be opened for you a little farther on, there is plenty of time. When you are in doubt, wait. Fall back on the contemplation of your vision, and increase your faith and purpose; and by all means, in times of doubt and indecision, cultivate gratitude.🌼 . . . .
A Mermaid Goddess will always turn her pain into power!
I try and only use oil lamps and homemade beeswax candles (Tasha Tudor craft book). Though electricity was invented in 1879, it wasn't prevalent until after Queen Victoria died in 1901.
I have electricity in my home, but remember when you are transitioning from modern to an old-fashioned lifestyle, it's fun to practice living by natural light. Another thing fun to do is to see how much you can begin cutting out new things such as air conditioning. The longest my dear husband and I have gone without airconditioning was almost four months. Our electric bill went from $260 to 45 dollars.
I'm so excited to begin homesteading when we buy our forever land and build our Victorian English cottage. How thrilling! We’ll have a whale of a time!

Are you feeling supported, encouraged, inspired, accountable AND motivated to keep going?
Do you also have a community of people behind you who are there to pick you up, keep you straight, cheer you on, and help keep that fire inside of you lit and burning fiercely?
This👆🏼 is why having a tribe of people behind you is mission critical both in life and in business.
There was an article I read way back about how everyone needs 7 types of friends in their circle.
😭 cry with you and wipe your tears
😽 know ALL your stuff and love you for who you are anyway
🎉 are the first you celebrate with
🤓 are strategic and have great ideas
💖 nurture you and speak your love language
🌟 you aspire to be like
So what about you? Do you know who is in your tribe?
If you can’t think of at least three go-to people you have on your team, it’s time to get yourself out there and make some new connections!
If you are blessed enough to have attracted the best people in your tribe, tag them below!

Winter is coming.
What was up with the dense fog that rolled in this morning in one giant cloud bank?
Seriously though, winter is coming, which means so is fall and the holidays. It's time to get yo' sh*t together if you haven't already. 2020. Say it aloud with me. 2020. Who have thought we'd get here so soon?
Wouldn't you love to kick off 2020 with major momentum? Me too. Let's do this.
Stop fighting to keep a friendship alive that has been dead for some time now. God has been trying to speak to you about this and you jus ain’t listening. Things are falling apart right before your eyes and you’re still not paying attention. His intentions are not to hurt you. But in order to elevate you, He needs to separate you!
Remember, as you get older, you’re transforming into a different person and so are your friends. The things you use to do or talk about may no longer feed your soul. And that’s fine. Let go with love, peace and integrity. The less you say, the better.
A healthy relationship is one that brings out the best in you. And together, you bring out the best in one another. If you’re (both) not growing through and in the relationship, that relationship serves no purpose.
Remember, transformation involves a cleansing process. So yes things and people will be cleansed out of your system in order to embrace the new YOU!
The day is finally here, guysss! @theshopatklsd GRAND OPENING is tonight! I can’t wait for you to see it.
