“It’s time to come back from the world of illusion, the world of lies, and return to your own truth, to your own authenticity. It’s time to unlearn the lies and become the real you. And in order to do that, you need to come back to life, which is truth." CONTINUE READING --> www.mysticmamma.com
“When it’s so intense I can’t take anymore,
And there is simply no way out,
I see my truth and must find a new source,
Of strength and love in my heart.” Kaypacha
“The Legacy of Woman does not have to include the former hurts that have set woman against woman, women against men, or caused women to destroy themselves through sabotage….there is no need to get involved with the high drama and pettiness that has kept us from achieving human harmony when we are busy working on becoming our personal visions.” Jami Sams from her book The Thirteen Original Clan Mothers

I recently passively entered a facebook contest to win this beautiful collection of essential oil blends and low and behold I won them. As my dear friend Rose just started working for this company, Escents, I thought she had something to do with my glorious win, alas she did not making it all the more special of a gift. They also gifted a set of twelve to my soul sister on the island.
Until I arrived home to open this package of delight I had not realized that this particular set of blends was the gemstone collection, it couldn't be more perfect of a match.
Thank you Escents for your beautiful blends and generous gifts. My current favourites are Turquoise (Petitgrain & Galbanum) & Ruby (Orange & Davana).
Gratitude, LLJ ♥
"The luscious ladies who love feeling the raw earth beneath their bare feet, and bow down proudly to the supple, winding curves of their thick, fleshy hips."
"We will never be okay sipping champagne, trying on haute couture, and talking about ways to make our asses skinny and recipes for dinner parties and how to get a man to love us.
We don’t really give a damn about any of that—
We want to talk about soul. About dripping truth. About magic. About death. About struggle. About the world’s heartbreaking pain." Sarah Harvey
Thank you to talented and inspiring friends, I have been blessed with beautiful photos to display on my website. Without Bree's creative eye and generous incorporation of my jewels, I wouldn't have the array of photos that I do. Please take a minute and checkout her work http://www.breezephotos.ca/blog/
MYSTICMAMMA is a source of spiritual conscious reminders, wisdom & insights. Often times I find beautiful reminders that resonate with where I am at in my growth and my humanness. This particular excerpt truly reminds me of the beauty of discomfort and how it helps us grow "Feedback we receive that insults the ego is a blessing; feedback that promotes the ego is an insult to our spirit." ~Michael Bernard Beckwith from Life Envisioning.

Happy to announce that these rosewood malas are now available at Wildwoods, in downtown Nelson BC. I highly encourage checking them out, they have a beautiful space offering yoga, acupuncture, infrared sauna, massage and so much more.
Harmonic Arts is a favourite company of mine nestled in the Comox Valley on Vancouver Island. They provide holistic teas, tinctures, yummy supplements (and so much more) to keep our bodies, minds & spirits aligned. With the quick approach of winter's visit, we are faced with the inevitable shorter days & longer nights. If we follow lead on the natural world, we can embrace and nourish this time with creativity, rest & reflection. For others, this may be a time of resisting the cold & darkness that this hibernate time inevitably bestows. Check out their blog (link below) on nourishing ways to welcome this beautiful time of honouring the shadows and allowing inner seeds to germinate.
Exploring Kookanee Glacier Park last week to celebrate a dear friend's birthday. Such a magically beautiful place, staying at Silverspray cabin with a panoramic view of larch trees, lakes, mountains & glaciers. After spending three days simply enjoying nature and friends, I'm reminded of the simpler ways of being in this life, slow down and enjoy the stillness of nature.
An abundance of pears has accumulated in my back yard. Thank you pear tree for producing so many delicious homegrown delights. Being in Nelson has brought me back to being in touch with simpler ways, slower & more conscious actions & intents. This transition into fall is a great time to reflect, journal, drink tea, cozy up with friends and slowing down.
Kaypacha's Pale reports are a favourite of mine, he is quirky and eccentrically himself while casually throwing down some deep truths & insight on whats happening for us astrologically, and subsequently emotionally & physically. Have a watch if you want to learn about yourself and what we can all be working on collectively, while having a chuckle.
After a summer full of many changes with a great deal of movement, reflecting, experiencing & expanding I have found a beautiful little home in Nelson, BC where I am so thrilled to be. Part of my inspiration to move out of Victoria was to simplify, be closer to the natural world & be able to continue this creative journey with new inspiration. This manifestation has definitely come into fruition, having surrendered to Nelson I am surrounded by inspiring mountains, a welcoming community and a yard where I can pick pears from the tree & fresh basil from the garden. May we follow our hearts, even when our minds can't quite comprehend where we are going, trust in your intuition and she will lead you somewhere magical.
✯Today I enter 10 days of silence at the Dhamma Surabhi Vipassana Meditation Retreat in Merritt. How this experience will present itself is unknown, but I choose to explore my inner world with grace. I'll be re-immersing from silence into the glorious world of Shambhala Music Festival, I do enjoy extremes! ☾Namaste Wild Ones
