The Universe has a plan.
It was my wonderful Swan friend (coach & mentor) Justine who first playfully used this beautiful term...I was so deeply inspired by the story of "The Ugly Duckling" (told beautifully in the book 'Women Who Run with the Wolves') that days later, I attracted an incredible synchronicity...I saw an actual family of swans, for the first time in my life, while out for a jog in my local park. The moment I began to embrace my transition, from the old to the new, "Swan family" from all over the world began (and continue to) appear in my life and join me on my awakening journey! 🐛🦋🙏🏼💕
This moment was as earned as it was a gift... all the work and all the discipline leading up to this moment was worth every second... to BE HERE NOW....free,happy, and at peace. Held within the power of the universe, partnering to allow the magic to move through.... being the vessel for the world to unfold... accepting and inviting....🙏 thankful 🙏 for all the blessings.... 📸 @jacobjanders
When you truly begin to love yourself (I mean radically forgive yourself, developing deep respect and appreciation for everything you are) you vibrate higher, your health improves, you heal, your relationships become more balanced - or are replaced with better ones - your mood lifts and even your bank account grows. When you feel depleted, it's because you need to go inside and heal something; the relationship you have with yourself. NO ONE else can or will ever fill that void, at least not for long. So aquaint yourself with your inner being, aka YOUR SOUL!!! Sit together in silence once a day. Make it your best friend, ask it for advice...and when you start to listen, your life will begin to magically transform. 🙏🏼🌌👁❤👁🌌🙏🏼
Ametrine is a perfect representation of effective intuition. ⠀
Amethyst and citrine... third eye perception and gut instinct. ⠀
Citrine connects us to trust and have confidence in our intellect.⠀
And amethyst opens us up to a higher intelligence. Our intuition and universal knowledge. ⠀

We can choose what we want to learn about & support - just like friendships. Sometimes we’ll find out what we need to learn & other times we can’t seem to get enough knowledge & experiences.✨For those who know me well, I have a history of spreading myself thin with what works I do. It wasn’t until the past 2 years that I realized & figured out how & what to focus on for my well-being. I still do so many things, but have zeroed in on my business in more specific ways in the last 7 months. I’ve been doing that with relationships too. Everything I choose to spend energy on is chosen with a wiser mind’s eye than the previous year, because I continue to learn & allow lessons to teach me. To think we have learned all there is to know about everything is foolish arrogance. I understand that we all are drawn to different frequencies of information. My energy spent sharing about safer skin care has been replenishing to me on many levels. I feel good about the info I pass along & I am grateful for the opportunity this business has given me. Those who do not resonate with my works or the changes I’ve made to my business have unfollowed or spoken out. I’m so glad it has mostly been well received though, because that reflects back to me the connections I want to have - because even if you don’t agree or understand, you feel the love I put into everything I write & the intention of my ❤️ to care about these important topics. The USA needs to make huge changes to the Cosmetic Industry. It’s not just about selling makeup or making us look young. We’ve been told that for decades, but that’s🐂💩. We formulate, advocate & educate about safer products & better business practices by setting a high standard for ourselves as we lead the way for others to follow. I choose to represent @beautycounter
for many reasons. One is that we are a @bcorporation
🌿I also truly stand behind our products as they are the best I’ve ever tried. Our new line that launched last week, “Countertime” is my favorite. This is the Tetrapeptide Supreme Cream.🏆All the Countertime products have our new Retinatural Complex™️- a safe alternative to Retinol (the most common anti-aging ingredient). More on my blog!
We have spent every day at the ranch this week & got 2 days with @thehybridrastamama
‘s daughter who is my daughter’s best friend. Jennifer and I finally met in-person in July 2013. Since that week we spent together after knowing each other online for a couple years, our daughter’s have been inseparable. When we moved to Northern California we were so excited to finally live within an hour of each other, but her home became destroyed by toxic black mold and she had a series of other unfortunate events and health crisis for her and her daughter - that ended up making them have to relocate to Arizona. I’m so grateful that she has visited us at least once a year since then, sometimes more. We try to meet up whenever we get within reasonable driving range. I miss her so much, and my daughter misses her bff. Seeing them grow up together and remain so close is heart-warming and it is interesting to me how well I connect with Jennifer and Nyjah with Jennifer’s daughter. I trusted Jennifer to visit my family and I from off the internet as blog friends, and she stayed in our home and even went on vacation with us to rent a house in the forest. I have always felt safe with her 💯! She and Alex instantly got along and laughed hysterically the first night we all spent together. I’m just super charged and full of love thinking about the blessings of having them in our life because I see the gift of having the unconditional love, support, & understanding from friends because of them. I didn’t choose my family, but I got blessed with them. But with friends, and my husband, I chose these people and they choose me back every day. I feel so thankful from this full week and healing energy of the horses and the work I’ve been doing- even though I haven’t posted much.💞Also, I'm posting again on my personal account btw @laurenluquin
- If I don’t know you at all, or I’ve never seen your profile or had a connection with you, I may not accept your request to follow. But I’m open to everyone, and will figure out who I feel comfortable with. Please take no offense if I deny your request. I can’t let complete strangers I’ve never seen on my account follow my other account.
One way you can identify toxicity in your life, is by how you feel about the thing or the person; if the answer is mostly "not good", in order to evolve and grow, you gotta let it/them go. Sometimes it takes a lot of bravery to even admit (let alone actually let go of) what or who no longer serves us spiritually or energetically...but by saying "no" to the things and people that make you feel like shit, YOU SAY YES to - and begin to attract - things and people who don't. And of course you feel much better. Don't forget to radically forgive and thank yourself (and others) in the process of becoming free. Every experience and every person serves a higher purpose on your journey, even the "shitty" ones...🔝🌌💕
Do you remember those days when you would wish for something and wonder if you'd ever get it..? Like that dream seems too far-fetched...? But now that you have it, how has that changed your life?
Gratitude for what we’ve had and lost.
Gratitude for what we have today.
