Inspired, Geek, Embodied, Conscious Present
Tell us about your journey, what brought you to where you are now?
What has been your biggest inspiration with the work that you do and share?
My biggest inspiration has been the work of those who came before us. The philosophies and classic texts of five-element philosophy have been and continue to be a huge inspiration to me. The potent power and capacity of our relationship with nature and the depths of human capacity within the body. Another huge inspiration has been my family and how to implement these fundamentals to self-mastery has also expanded their understanding of wellness. Nature and creation has always, and will always be on the top on my gratitude list. Its supporting role in our very existence and how are internal environments mirror the external. It blows my mind. I have learnt so much from nature and just watching the way wild animals exist in our world. With no expectation or conditions, just a mutual exchange of life and blessings with the wholeness of the environment. It could make me weep honestly and often does.
What sparks joy in your life that truly lights you up? (This could be big or small).
Freedom. The freedom that can be found in existence. Existence period! I am in awe of the beauty of it all. The tantra of life and everything that exists in it.
What is your favourite practice that connects you to your heart ki/energy? (Please share a tip, tool or technique to support our wellbeing?
I have a few. firstly, just making time to be in nature. We have such a powerful exchange with nature through the senses. It stimulates all of them, opening up parts that become closed and blocked. Stepping out of the matrix and into the reality of creation always humbles and opens this part of myself to its infinite nature. Sometimes things can be and get to be simple. One of my other practices is mediating with my heart chakra. Imagining flowers blossoming from this area and perfuming all of my subtle bodies. I also will use essential oils, herbs in for of teas and of foods that support this centre on my heart meditation days. To radiate the opening of this energy.
Rest the palms of your hands on your heart centre, take a soft breath and share with us a message from your heart?
You are powerful beyond measure, the architecture of the divine and manifest from pure undiluted love. Find yourself in the seat of this remembrance, and share its reflection with the world.
