Human beings have deeply social and relational brains. Some people wish they could transcend the human biology and evolution that makes us need others, but I call that grief. We need both autonomy and connection.

🌝 Basking in the light of the full moon on the weekend! 🌝 .
Spend time with people who inspire you simply by being themselves
True connection is created between people who are being their real selves with others and genuinely want to see you shine
Trust me, when you let go of trying to be a certain way or wear a mask to be loved or accepted, the greatest connections happen!
Momentary connections with other people can improve your day and your long-term wellbeing. Close friendships are important; but that doesn’t mean that fleeting encounters can’t be significant, too.
Have you ever met someone, just for a few moments, who brightened your day and stuck in your mind?
Set the intention today to speak to a stranger. It doesn’t have to be a big conversation; just say hello, and if a positive comment springs to mind, share it. In doing so you will trigger the release of mood boosting hormones in your own body and in theirs, too.

Time for a warming turmeric tea and to write in my “Wild Women, Wild Voices” Journey Notes. I’ve been reconnecting with my Wild self; remembering where I’ve come from and thinking about where my journey is taking me. Motivation has been a problem lately as I was feeling unseen, but I realise now I needed to just work through those emotions. And of course, it gave me inspiration for a new blog post too 😊 #wildwoman#writeforwellness#connection#soulsearching#creativity#dailywriting
Drop the illusions.
Drop the masks.
Tune into your breath.
Your beating heart.
Slow it down.
Feel the peace.
Drop into you.
Everything starts from here...
So much love to you, & to yourself, give love. 💗Nic
“for a man to truly get close to a woman lies in his ability to emotionally penetrate her. Before anything else. With this means sensitivity that allows him to empathise with her, feel her & yet also stay solid in his masculine presence & not get confused by her emotional roller coaster. “
This I wrote to inspire men in this world to dig deeper into the realms of the divine feminine (since it is very much needed). Yet, what I notice (through many years of relating and speaking to both men and women) is that most women don’t really understand that this goes the other way around too. Very few women today has the presence and capacity to emotionally penetrate men. This is a loss in society today.
Women have been targets and sacrificial objects under the patriarchal wrath for eons of time, abused and amused, and are somehow feeling left alone, and by doing so, trusting this story, they are alone when they shouldn’t. It is a subconscious torture from places inside we rarely can grasp.
When women don’t embrace the masculine energy in ways as themselves want to be embraced, they subsequently fail in being femininity. There is a growing number of men out there who has developed a sense for emotional intelligence alongside with higher state of consciousness in which becomes a very hard challenge for women to stay beside. This since they relate to and subscribe to the ordinary narrative, again this operates at a subconscious level.
This is not a blame post.. only here to raise awareness on the evolution of polarity and potential/truth of human nature. We are all worthy same love. Who would imagine that a man could carry the same energies and sensitivity as women do? This creates an atmosphere that is, instead of empowering, confusing and estranged. Which leads to that women shy away.
Let us all write a new story together.
Always remember...inner wisdom, grace, your gifts and your very own unique purpose is instilled within...your past, hidden parts, broken pieces & that of your pain is part of your story...all part of your journey...the alignment in the stars throughout YOUR life.⭐️ Be still, quiet your mind & be witness to the glimmers...those of hope, light & life & allow that which you wouldn’t otherwise see...be seen...be courageous & embrace your past, change your thoughts & your world becomes brighter, peaceful & heart happier...reach out & surrender your pain & allow your light to shine. ✨💜💫

John oozes colour. Colour in his attire, his expressions… and his language. An exuberant character and inquisitive chap - I warmed to him immediately.
He is an iconic Australian knitwear designer, having worked with the biggest names in fashion and the celebrity scene. Famous in his own right for his custom made and speciality knits, John claims to have semi-retired and enjoying slowing down. A true Bondi local, loves nothing better than oscillating between the beach and the ocean - a man after my own heart. .
John has a striking range of knitwear out at the moment with Marcs, check it out… and so much for slowing down.
H E A R T C H A K R A • The fourth chakra is called the #Anahata. Located at the center of the chest (not where the actual heart organ is). The Sanskrit name translates as: Unbeaten Drum.
The fourth chakra relates to the fourth level of the auric field and is the connection between the lower three physical chakras and the upper three spiritual chakras.
At death, the chakras associated with the physical body lose their form and the fourth through the seventh chakras are said to remain intact.
The fourth chakra metabolizes compassion and universal love. Energy moves in and out of the auric field as it comes through the heart chakra.
During healing, the heart transmutes the energies of the physical plane to the spiritual, and the energies of the spiritual plane to the physical.
The back aspect of the heart chakra is associated with experience in harmony between our will and divine will. It relates to feeling supported by our environment and our lives. The fourth chakra relates the thymus gland, heart, lungs, and circulation.
Heart Chakra Symbology:
Color • Green (higher vibes turn pink)
Mantra • I LOVE
Element • Air
Frequency • 341.3 Hz
Sense • Touch
Planet • Jupiter
Herbs • cayenne, sage, lavender
Stones • Rose Quartz, Clear Quartz, Pink/Green Jade

S O L A R P L E X U S C H A K R A // The third chakra is called #Manipura and seems to have some variations on how it is viewed. Eastern tradition locates it at the navel, while western sources refer to a major chakra as being the third chakra and located at the solar plexus. Healers who work internationally agree that Americans work more strongly through their solar plexus chakra than people in many European and Asian cultures.
The solar plexus relates to the third, or mental level of the auric field. This chakra regulates our view by defining it within a framework of reality. Having a sense of your place grounded in the universe relates to this chakra.
At the navel, this chakra is associated with the energy of human connectedness.
The third chakra connects the emotions of the second chakra with the heart.
The back of the solar plexus chakra relates to one’s intentionality towards their health and healing. Often this center is large in spiritual healers.
In the physical body, the third chakra is associated with the stomach, gallbladder, liver, spleen, and pancreas.
Your solar plexus chakra may be out of balance if you are struggling with aggression, fear, nightmares, stress, etc. And all of that can build up and give you digestive issues.
Solar Plexus Chakra Symbology:
Color • Yellow / Gold
Mantra • I DO
Element • Fire
Frequency • 320 Hz
Sense • Sight
Planet • Mars
Herbs • ginger, turmeric, cinnamon
Stones • Tiger’s eye, Amber

@buddhist_poetry | Every moment is a moment to free yourself. To take your mask off and let yourself be seen.. We wear these masks because it’s what we think others want and, for some of us it’s all we’ve ever known, but these masks actually keep us from receiving what our heart and soul desire most: connection. Deep, genuine, mutual connection with others. “I’m not a mess but a deeply feeling person in a messy world. I explain that now, when someone asks me why I cry so often, I say, ‘For the same reason I laugh so often--because I'm paying attention.' I tell them that we can choose to be perfect and admired or to be real and loved. We must decide.” - @glennondoyle 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼 THIS is the work. It’s all too easy for us to fall back into our old patterns, it’s too easy to disconnect. What we need is connection. And I’m reminded of my meditation teacher’s gentle words, “It feels like a choice until it doesn’t.” - Don Oakley
What beautiful words. Allowing s p a c e for deep healing in our world. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
What if we showed up in life with the intention to • truly• show • up not only for ourselves but for others?•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
What if we held space, creating a safe container for someone else that may be hurting or in pain while also allowing ourselves to settle into our own discomfort? And what if we did so, without saying a word? Often times we are so caught up in our own thoughts and what to say next that we are no longer fully present with what truly is. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
When was the last time you felt completely Present (connected) with yourself? Fully Present (connected) with someone else? •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Just got back home from another beautiful day of being outside with my kiddos🐾♥️!We had many breaks as they were tired today from playing in the water to laying in the field in one of my favourite spots!
We got to see an eagle again today just floating in the wind! Ducks playing in the water and puppies barking & playing! It was a perfect day to be outside playing!
Oh I love my kids and spending time with them ♥️🐾✨🦋! I couldn’t of asked for anything more than this!

Helloo, friends!! I’m Jade, and this is my blog/account dedicated to all things yoga, spirituality, self-growth, and body-positivity related!! .
A little bit about me! I’m a certified 200hr yoga instructor, and most importantly a lifelong student. The amount of love and gratitude I have for finding yoga is HUGE and I can’t wait share some elements of my learning with you all on here! I also consider myself to be a dance and music enthusiast, and frequent solo dance parties on the regular (if you’ve never done that, you really should... like for real... do itt). I would say that overall I just love to create things, whether it be though movement when I dance or this blog, making things and being creative makes my heart so happy, I freaking love to make all the thingss. .
I’m not gonna lie, I don’t know exactly what this blog will look like, where I will take it, but I’m excited regardless! I have been putting off making my first post because of my perceived lack of plan but have finally told myself to stop overthinking it and trust that everything will work out... I just need to start. So hence the name Jade’s Journey, as not only is this documenting my self-growth journey but this account is a journey in itself and I am expecting to change my plan with it as I grow.
I am SO pumped to see where this blog goes, and excited to share my passions with anyone who wants to tag along for he ride haha. Sending you peeps all the lovee. 💛
- Jade ✨
