Dinner harvest from the garden 🍅🌱
I have to admit that I’m pumped the kale is coming in now as I’m honestly getting a little tired of our Joi Choi 😂😂
So grateful to be a little tired of delicious home grown food though ❤️❤️
Are you harvesting anything from your garden yet?
Looking closely at the more than human world. Today I found myself looking very closely at small things and also standing back and looking at big things. When I'm out in nature I wander slowly and take in what is going on around me using all of my senses and today I found myself focusing on small details like the lichen on this branch and then standing back to observe the enormity of the very big and very old Horse Chestnut. Go slowly, tread gently and '"notice what you're noticing"!
If your body could’ve spoken – afforded your essence with capable, developed faculties – at the time of your birth, what would you have said? How did you feel about yourself and the world then before it told you how to feel?
Let’s get back to that place of pure love, curiosity, tenderness, and innocence. How are you reconnecting today?
Do you ever feel like you ate expected to be performing perfectly every day although not every day is the same??
Yesterday I had one of those days, when everything is irritating and nothing seems to flow...
And of course the great old habit of beating myself up comes through😉
By the afternoon I felt better, having figured out what was going on... But....
"It has taken me the entire day to feel better! I did my yoga, my practices, my walk, I talked to my coach... I should have done it quicker!"
Do you ever feel like you should know better?
You should perform better?
You should be better?
The real shift was realising that I didn't give up!
For the entire day I did all the things that I know help me feel like I intend to, so each choice was a win.
I didn't give up, I embraces myself and I leaned into the support I have with me.
Every choice you make, despite resistance and the shame voice telling you you are not enough is a win.
You are wonderful!
You are enough!
And you can choose to upgrade your life every moment of your day🍃❤️

Milky Oats 🌿In their Milky stage as a potent restorative for coping with stress💚
Stress is not something that happens to you, but rather how you react or respond to the stressor. There are different types of stress:
❇️Tame stress- this is the positive response to stress. Like preparing for a test. You get a bit excited, heart rate goes up, stress hormones become a little elevated, immune system gets a boost, but after the test everything returns to normal.
💠Tolerable stress- this is the stress that is less comfortable, like a break-up. Usually, the body's alert system is triggered to a great degree, but you ultimately learn some important life lessons and you bounce back.
💮Toxic stress- this is the harmful stress and happens when our body stays in a chronic stress response. Usually this occurs from a traumatic experience, financial hardships, and abuse. When people stay in toxic stress for too long, the consequences include impaired immune function, depression, ect.
There are herbal allies that can support our bodies adaption to stress. One of my favorites and one I am using more and more in my practice are Milky Oats. This herbal ally is a nervine trophorestorative. This means that it doesn't provide an immediate calming affect, rather it rebuilds the nervous system as a whole.
You can think of Milky Oats as food for the nervous system. This remedy nourishes depleated nerves and strengthens any nutrient deficiencies
It's important to purchase milky oats products that have been harvested during their milky seed stage. The milky stage is what provides deep nourishment to the nerves.
Moon textures, adding another watercolor layer to this diagram this morning.
Pondering how to make this into a useful calendar for women to keep in tune with their moon cycle, any ideas anyone?
Love the gentleness and transparency of watercolor painting in the morning, connecting to the tip of the brush filled with water and pigment.
Water and the moon have such a strong connection it seems very right to use watercolor to depict her in all her different shapes.
Midday cacao’s and mind~blowing healing with @mandy_francisty ... all I can say is I am trusting so much in my deep remembering and my own inner wisdom now after our session. Thank you for your incredible safe space holding and nurturing guidance✨
Also sharing a snap of a cute desert daisy... does anyone know her name? #blushingbride Isn’t nature our greatest teacher of blossoming and seasonal living

The ocean is my favourite place on Earth, and I can’t imagine a better friend to admire it with.
Weißt du, was mich #glücklich macht? Dich glücklich zu machen! 🙌🌞 Ja genau Dich, der oder die sich gerade die Zeit nimmt, um das hier zu lesen. Die in meine Yogastunden kommt, meine Blogartikel liest oder einfach hin und wieder auf meiner Instagram- oder Facebook-Seite vorbeischaut. Ich kreiere das alles, um dir die wundervolle Welt des #yoga zu zeigen und hoffentlich einen Funken meiner #freude auf dich überspringen zu lassen. Ich tue, was ich tue, für dich und für mich. Weil ohne dich gäbe es mein #herzensbusiness nicht. Und deshalb möchte ich #danke sagen 💛
Ich glaube, im Leben geht es nicht darum so viel wie möglich zu bekommen, sondern sich selbst an andere zu verschenken. ➡️Darum frage ich mich lieber: "Was kann ich heute geben?" anstatt "Was kann ich bekommen?" Und wenn du mir heute eine besondere Freude machen möchtest, schreib mir unglaublich gerne in die Kommentare, warum du mir folgst oder meine Yogastunden besuchst und was dir daran Freude bereitet 🌞
Millions of people all over the world came together to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth day!
The official theme was "transformative action for our planet" and coming together in our beautiful Time to Shine community, with the intention to explore Unity Consciousness, was truly an expression of that.
In the session "Birthing a New Earth – Community, Unity and Being the change" I got real raw and vulnerable with you all, as I shared about my Covid-19 experience, the invitation from the Universe to unify the forgotten-about parts of me, and ways in which we can show up and practise Unity Consciousness in our daily lives, right in the midst of turbulence, polarised information and uncertainty about the future. .

🌍The OpportUnity for Unity we are presented with right now
🌍What is meant by Unity Consciousness

🌍The importance of grief in embracing Unity Consciousness
🌍The 4 practises for Unity Consciousness : Witnessing & Curiosity, Compassion, Love without conditions, Boundaries
🌍Being an Ambassador for Love
🌍The role of CommUnity in embracing Unity .
🌳We closed with a Tree of Life Meditation to connect with the Earth, bring together the parts of ourselves that have we have forgotten, rejected, abandoned or left behind, and embrace being the change.
🌚Today we are also welcoming the New Moon in Taurus. 🐃
Taurus is the sign most closely linked with the Earth, the New Moon all about planting the seeds for our new beginnings. 🌱
Today is the perfect day for planting the seeds for our future and for the Earth we are wanting to birth.🌱 .
How we are showing up and responding to this virus crisis right now, determines what comes after - for us all. 💞🙏🏼💞 .
Each of us can choose to become an ambassador for Love right here and now and begin to practise Unity Consciousness in our everyday lives. .
As such we will hold the highest vision for the future of our planet and for all life on it.💫 .

Hello! Finnigan Noel here, herbalist, wild tender, bee tender and perpetual student. A few years ago, I dedicated my life to the plants and trees. At the time I declared it, but was really unsure of how that would look or manifest itself. I just had a deep knowing that, that was what I was supposed to do. I changed my career, my relationship, where I lived, everything in search of what I was meant to do. I realized I had a choice and I followed the tugs. I dove deep into studying. I embarked down the mystical path of the tarot, folk herbalism, plant spirit medicine, yoga, reiki, medicinal aromatherapy, the honeybee and so on.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It was a journey that pulled me apart, it was not always easy, but it always kept me curious. Curious to know more, to do more, to see more, to ask more questions. I had been living a life that never seemed like mine, it was meant for another.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I peeled off skin, after skin. Let them decay into the Earth. I allowed for a new tender, vulnerable skin to emerge. I began to fill myself up with the wild world. I became friends with the Oaks, the birds, the plants, the ocean. I could speak to my animals in a new way. I could hear beyond this realm... I could hear into the unknown.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Simplicity. Ease. Love. Kindness. Wonder. Joy. Happiness. Abundance. Laughter. Truth. This is what I found in my inner wild as I let the wild world feed my ecosystem.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I am in service to this Earth & to you. To help you unearth your inner wild & your power, to help you find your joy in your life. You deserve that.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You are the wild. x⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’m so excited to attend my 12th @earth_frequency, to share experience with my worldwide family and press our feet into the sacred land that is Ivory’s rock. I’ll be sharing a speech at the Opening Ceremony on Saturday afternoon. Come and sit, welcome yourself to country and connect to the reasons as to why we gather. 🌿
