Did you know that you have around 60 THOUSAND thoughts a day? The best part is that you don’t have to buy into them, because sometimes they’re plain silly. . A thought tells you you can’t? HA! I don’t believe it. You don’t have it in you? WRONG! What could it mean to question and finally deem some of these bad boys as FALSE? You have that option! Next time a thought pops in....test it for it’s validity! You’re the driver, not your thoughts!

“I’m not responsible for your happiness and if your workouts make you happy I’m not responsible or to blame if you don’t make time for them.” ⁣ ⁣ Gut check when your husband tells you this, am I right? ⁣ ⁣ I mean of course he is right. Johnny and I have very open communication about all the things. When he said this too me late night on the couch when I was on a bitch fest about having no time for me, etc etc I was like, “yeah but!!!” ⁣ ⁣ What am I 4? No, I’m not I’m a grown ass woman and it’s 110% true ladies. It’s an inside job- if you want to be happy do the things that make you happy. ⁣ ⁣ If you are drowning, swim to the edge, and climb out. Don’t wait for someone to save you. Don’t think anyone is going to make you happy. Don’t blame someone else for where you are in your life. Show up and start to move. ⁣ ⁣ We all make choices and yes sometimes it’s hard and scary but you know what sometimes it’s scary to not change at all. ⁣ ⁣ You want to be happy? Instead of talking about why you are unhappy make a list in your phone right now, what makes you happy? What makes your feel like that best, wild, confident version of YOU? ⁣ ⁣ Then take that list and start doing! And I’m not talking about massages and blow outs. I mean yes they make me happy but they are not necessarily going to give you the growth or shift you are craving. I’m talking about connection, movement, soul, laughter, love, fucking wild joy. Find that. Find her and run with it. ⁣ ⁣ You can do it. You are here to be the most true honest beautiful version of you✨

The cats out of the bag: I have been stepping into my work as a clairvoyant and channeler. • It has been a beautiful and deeply humbling experience, resulting from a series of deep spiritual awakenings that shook me to my core. • The guides and teachers that have been working with me from beyond this realm for years now, have started speaking messages through me. Potent messages, at that. • They speak of Unity, of Oneness, of the evolution of collective consciousness. Of the inherent extrasensory abilities we each hold, of a new era approaching where these spiritual experiences will be common-place & de-mystified. • They have been attuning people to a higher frequency through channeled meditation, energy work, psychic readings, & lectures - and being someone who tends to have a hard time with vulnerability & communication, especially public speaking, sitting in front of groups & witnessing wisdom tumble out of my mouth at high speed has been absolutely bizarre beyond my wildest dreams. • They've even shown me what happens when we die: what it feels like, & where we go when we do. I've experienced Heaven, & it's not at all what - or where - we thought it was. It's right here, within us. • Besides that, I've been reliably hearing, seeing, & feeling things for people, channeling people's family members, loved ones, & partners - even those who have passed away. • I have been tapping into people's energy fields & reading them like a map. With permission, I am able to access information about their current life, past lives, & the Soul agreements made before and after incarnation. • For awhile, I was having a hard time with this transition - trying to figure out how to bring this version of myself forward. • However, I've come to realize that it's actually quite simple: I just have to step into myself openly. • Because this is who I am. This is my Truth. Take it or leave it, it's honestly up to you. • Either way, I have arrived here now. Fully in it. Fully ready to share this healing experience with others. It feels like I've finally come home. • SO IT IS 🌬️ • • May we all rise together in our energy now - a new decade has arrived ⚡🙏⚡ • • • 💞✨👁️⚡👁️✨💞

This is my “I didn’t let fear stop me even though I wanted to let it” face 👏🏼 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Seriously, the fear was real. I was stepping out for the first time in a long time. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What if I fail? What if I get my hopes up only to be rejected? What if, what if, what if? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Then I did the thing DESPITE the fear. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ WHAT IF God has destined this exact moment? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ WHAT IF I surprise myself at how I do this with ease? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ WHAT IF it turns out better than I could imagine? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sometimes imagining the worst is easier than imagining the wonderful possibilities. Have you ever felt this way? Sometimes the worst does happen but sometimes the BEST things happen. Do it for those moments. Stomp on that fear and do it anyways. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ WHAT IF it only takes one moment, one yes, one second of courage to be propelled into the best that God has for you? Because sometimes it only takes a moment. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Double tap if you’re going to do the thing DESPITE the fear ❤️ You CAN do this!

For those of you who don't already know me, my name is Jade Vinh. - Nearly 2 years ago I was in a 4 year relationship which I ended 2 days before the 4 year mark because I wasn't feeling it anymore. No growth not even sure if there was still love but I let it go to try to find myself. - During the relationship I was working for a gym, managing a few locations drowning myself in work. The only escape from work and the relationship I was in was to party, drink, smoke and do drugs. Bender after bender, hangover after hangover, life just became a viscous cycle of work party work party. - After the break up boiiii I was free, for the first week I actually stayed sober because I didn't need to escape anymore. But all the free time meant more time for work so the cycle began again. - I eventually cut sick and quit my job, left 3 years of hard work just to be free once again. But then I had nothing to do, drinking and partying was all life could be about. - I soon met my recent partner, and dated for 9 months before recently breaking up. I have to admit this break up hurt me more than any of my other relationships, including the 4 year one. - Well the only reason why this hurt so much was because he taught me to be better, and for that I am so grateful. I gave up partying, drinking, smoking and drugs to be better and to achieve better. I learned to cook more, clean better, to be a house wife. But who am I kidding, do I really look like a housewife? I have dreams and goals too.. In saying that, after the break up I've been having an identity crisis. I don't know who I am, what I am or what's my purpose. Previously I was so consumed by work, and recently I found myself so consumed in his life that I forgot about mine. - After the break up, I paid Against The Grain HQ a visit on 06/02/2020 caught up with the old team whom I used to work with and on that day everything changed.. I finally joined a team who sees me for who I am, and I look forward to seeing what the future holds. Everything happens for a reason. - #SPEAKYOURTRUTH #REGRETNOTHING #FUCKSHITUP2020 @againstthegrain_hq

Don't forget to recharge the batteries. You are no good to nobody if you burn out. Time to yourself is vital. Sit down, read a book, take a nap, go for a walk, sip some wine, meditate, take up yoga, run, go out for dinner, take a bath, get a massage, or make love. Enjoy yourself and relax. #speakyourtruth #womenempowerment #wet #womenempowertruth #metime #timeforyourself

Sometimes we don’t realize we need healing until things get really bad. Sometimes it is not until we hit rock bottom that we realize we need help. But it doesn’t have to be that way. If you are conscious of some wounds that need healing, come to me for a 1:1 session. Healing doesn’t have to be painful. With my healing sessions I allow you to express yourself and share without judgment; I hold space for you and then all you have to do is receive. Receive the gentle, powerful Reiki/shamanism energy. Lie down, close your eyes, and relax. Know that all you have to do is be open. After your healing, I empower you and inspire you with my clairvoyant visions, messages and recommended action steps. You will come away feeling lighter, more confident, and joyful. It’s time to pamper you! 💕💕💕

25.02.2020 The day I experienced yet another dream manifesting into this reality 💫 I have always dreamt of being able to speak my truth and share my life’s story with people, especially teenagers. I FINALLY got that opportunity this week. Truly grateful for the opportunity to speak to the SCA students on the career path I chose and the way God, The Universal Creator, worked miracles in my life. It was a precious moment in time to reflect on my past while speaking to the future of our Nation and most importantly, future female entrepreneurs! I got so excited when I saw the number of hands that went up when I asked the question, “Who wants to be an entrepreneur?” So many faces lit up, so many heart filled with passion. Knowing that I was once that teenage girl searching for someone to be a positive role model.....this was by far a heartfelt experience. I thought real hard about posting this...but then I decided to do so because I want to be able to look back some day and see how far I’ve come along my journey and say, “I am so grateful for these beautiful memories!” ....And if the Universe grants me another opportunity to do so, I will gladly accept with open arms 🙏🏾

What do you create vs sacrifice to feel safe? This has been the theme of my 30’s 😆...to feel safe, I create safety by calming my nervous system, unraveling trauma, investing in practice and ritual, breathing, cooking, wombing (yup ), expressing my emotions, teaching, sitting with women, sitting with men, asking for what I want, asking for help and advice, speaking out, writing this post... I also make sacrifices to feel safe, I endure, I let things go, I laugh things off, I join in, I walk away, I get defensive, I play a part, I walk on eggshells, I don’t have boundaries, I don’t leave, I don’t give up, I feel guilty. 😣 BUT All these are ways towards safety, through creation or destruction. Sometimes living in the shadows is the only way for us to feel safe when we don’t have access to our words, agency over our body and the ability to speak our truth. It’s a basic right but also a privilege and a practice to create safety on our own terms and have institutions that uphold these standards. Many have fought for that...standing in this yard would have felt very differently 30 years ago 😊💕 #safety #safespaces #privilege #speakyourtruth #agency #sovereignwoman #wisewoman #healing #polyvagaltheory #enduring #womb #wombwisdom #women #freewill #freespeach #choices #choose

When I was young, we had to recite The Pledge of Allegiance every day at school. The other day I woke up with the words running through my head. And then I thought, “What if I wrote my own personal pledge that could reinforce my commitment to the path I am on now and those who are walking it with me? This pledge is a result of that. Next week I leave for Bali on an evolutionary quest to awaken. Admittedly a large undertaking that requires a guiding mantra, pledge, or an emancipation proclamation. What in your life is demanding you play bigger than you have had to before? What is begging you to write a manifesto, a pledge, a battle cry, or statement of your truth? I’d love to hear your cause and what your create to stand for it. #pledgeofallegiance #soulpledge #manifesto #speakyourtruth #practicingeverydayalchemy #speakup #tellthetruth #apennyforyourthoughts #pennyplautz #raiseyourvoice #whatmattersmost #whatsyourstory

I’m hesitant to talk about my night last night.... but at the same time I don’t want an instagram that’s just a highlight reel. I have generalised anxiety disorder. . After not having any panic attacks for a few months, last night I had a nocturnal panic attack and it was terrifying. Truly. It turns your world upside down. Basically instead of being able to use your calming techniques for a ‘normal panic attack’, you feel caught off guard and awaken so dizzy you can’t walk, with a racing heart, sweat pouring and no idea what set it all off! It’s like your worst nightmare with added physical symptoms that make you wonder if it’s death or not. . So today I feel hungover. I feel scared it’s going to come back for me. I feel violated by my own sleep. 😞. I know this is just the anxiety talking too. . If you suffer from panic attacks or anxiety, you’re not alone. I’m here. I’m with you. Never forget that all your dreams can come true with this condition as well. You can do amazing jobs and see amazing places with this condition. It can feel SO isolating but but by bit, follow your dreams. ☁️ 💫. . I’m going to take it easy today. Do a meditation, journal and try and remember that I’m safe. ❤️. I hope this vent wasn’t too much... I just thank you for hanging out here with me through the good stuff and the bad. 🧠

Bom Dia, Radiant Earth Beings! Truth Telling Thursday... Controversial Jupiter Day Blessings! I have to remind myself to stay humorous about the state of things... ; ) And with that, this: My internal "socio-spiritual meteorology" barometer has been going hay wire since last November... feeling all sorts of "red flags". (Looking at transits for this year ) And my Sun in Libra, Cancer Rising... always wanting to "package" everything in a digestible way... slowly, elegantly and smoothly. Though more and more... I keep feeling the time for diplomacy and pleasantries... has passed. Today I'm embracing my more controversial aspects of Natal Sun Conjunct Mars & Pluto, Mercury in Scorpio... because if the lil voice in my head actually got out more often... I think that there'd be more peace happening (controlled homeostasis, stronger immune system ) in this body I have the divine honor to walk around in and call my temple. So perhaps... it's a "temple honoring" day. There's a system... a system of governing... an arrangement of distribution of wealth... an ideology that supports the exploitation of natural resources and human resources... a way of structuring reality... a reality that we either condone, empower, perpetuate... or we actively dismantle... oppose... restructure... or perhaps even simply just transmute into something else. Or create sanctuaries... like Zion... that offer another way of being... another way of seeing... another way of existing. But when large, international, cosmopolitan cities begin to declare "states of emergency": "San Francisco Mayor London Breed (D ) declared a state of emergency for the city on Tuesday amid concerns over the international coronavirus outbreak." And when there are reports of people being cremated alive: "As the World Health Organization (WHO ) praises China for its "tailored approach" to handling the Wuhan coronavirus outbreak, a video has surfaced of a Chinese woman vividly describing patients being bound in body bags and cremated while still alive."

This morning I woke up feeling so grateful. So many people covered me in love after sharing what I was going through yesterday and it made me feel incredibly loved and supported. I couldn’t be more appreciative. It meant the world to me. 🙏🏼 - I was still slightly emotional at work and decided I needed to rest my mind. During meditation I totally fell asleep on my office floor for twenty minutes. I woke up freezing which is shocking AF to me. So I crawled into bed for what was supposed to be an extra 15 minutes but turned out to be a 2hr nap. 🤦🏻‍♀️😂 - I clearly need some rest. My body is drained and it’s trying to tell me. Sometimes we think it’d be obvious that we need physical rest when we go through stuff but, sometimes we don’t really feel it until our body tells us. - I’m going to be working from bed, reading my book, and going to bed early tonight. I’m honestly so excited to get all the sleep. 😴

Oh man. I have learned this lesson over and over and over.⠀ ⠀ I used to think of myself as a social chameleon. I was bullied as a kid, so in order to fit in, I learned how to change my colors depending on who I was with. Sometimes I was extroverted and funny and loud — sometimes I was soft and tender and sweet. I tailored myself to be the version of myself I assumed would be most-liked in any given moment. For a while, I even considered it my greatest skill. ⠀ ⠀ As a result, I had a lot of “friends:” folks who would wave hi on the street or split a plate of fries with me at the bar. But it didn’t matter how many “friends” I had, because NONE of them really knew me. When I was having a really rough day and felt raw and exposed, there was nobody I could call. ⠀ ⠀ When we are constantly performing, we don’t let people get to know us. REALLY know us. In the years since, I’ve been like a nervous kiddo dipping her toes in a pool: slowly, cautiously showing people my true colors. All of them —⠀ not just the pretty, happy ones. Now, I have fewer “friends,” and a small, core group of friends who feel like chosen family. And I no longer feel alone ☺️♥️⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #codependency #codependencyrecovery #recovery #recoverycoach #codependencyrecoverycoach #healing #speakyourtruth #lifecoach #relationshipcoach #setboundaries #healthyrelationships #mentalhealth #therapy #personalgrowth #peoplepleaser #recoveringpeoplepleaser #boundaries #inspirationalquotes #selfcare #selflove #mentalhealth

Do you respect your OWN boundaries? 🧐⠀ ⠀ Respecting your own boundaries gives you the confidence, self-respect, and self-trust you need to set firm boundaries with others.⠀ ⠀ When we respect our own boundaries, we say to ourselves: “I am worthy. I deserve to feel good. I deserve to feel healthy. I am worthy of mental peace and clarity.” ⠀ ⠀ When we respect our own boundaries, we learn the sacred sensations of SELF-TRUST — which may have previously been elusive if we spent a lifetime putting others’ needs before our own.⠀ ⠀ How can you practice respecting your own boundaries this week?

I’m working on something where I speak my greatest fears aloud and let them go— so here’s this: sometimes I doubt the longevity of my teaching career. I wonder- can I prepare for another week in the classroom? Sometimes I’m afraid that I can’t do it. I think about weeks I’ve had and how much it’s taken out of me and I think- “you’re not special Ana- many just like you/ who have loved their job with such devotion- have had to walk away”. Sometimes I do— I think about walking away. Picking a job that is more “respected” by society. Picking a job where the first words I hear back when I tell someone I’m a teacher aren’t, “well at least you get summers off”- or “I could never do that”. The truth is- we have all thought about leaving. And every time when my thoughts make there way here- the kids pull me out. They pull me out every time. They save me. Because all it takes is that memory of a smile, or an “I appreciate you Ms. Zarovska”- to help me get right back up. To keep me hanging on for this wild ride. To magically “prepare” me for another week. Sending all my love to you. Your worries deserve room to be heard. I hope somewhere along my sharing these thoughts you feel validated and comforted. ♥️ . . . #teaching #teacherlife #iteach #innervoice #thoughtcatalog #teachers #teachersarehuman #iteachtoo #teacherblogger #michigan #michiganlove #innerstrength #journaling

Be honest: Could you inner self use a reminder that you’re on your own side? ⠀ As @susanweissberrycoaching reminds us, if you’ve spent time people-pleasing or betraying your boundaries, you might feel like you’re on everyone’s side but your own. A great way to begin rebuilding trust with yourself is with self-care. ⠀ ⠀ As you take care of your needs and treat your body and mind with respect, you begin to learn that you can trust yourself to put yourself first.⠀ ⠀ #codependency #codependencyrecovery #recovery #recoverycoach #codependencyrecoverycoach #healing #speakyourtruth #lifecoach #relationshipcoach #setboundaries #healthyrelationships #mentalhealth #therapy #personalgrowth #peoplepleaser #recoveringpeoplepleaser #boundaries #inspirationalquotes #selfcare #selflove #mentalhealth
