We lose the wonder because we are challenged by our lives. We get cut open, gutted like fish and left to resurrect ourselves along this journey of life or we sit in nothingness. What inspires me to believe in humanity and what keeps me in love with people is that I choose the later. All things are rooted in suffering. You look at my photos and videos you see smiles or love or something else but do you know where that light and love came from? It came from the physical abuse, it came from the mental abuse, it came from losing a baby, it came from the rape, it came from the judgement of others, it came from getting lost, it came from my struggles that still exist even to today. Suffering yields the miraculous. So be here. Be part of what you’re sewn into. Bloom and blossom where you are planted. Be aware of the awesomeness that you are and realise that without you, the seaming of this mysteriously interconnected world would cease to exist as it is. Hope is never gone, it is just ignored or lost in the chaos of life.
As I am about to embark on a 3 year journey to head home to Australia on Saturday. I want to thank you all. It would not have been possible without you all. if you want to know if you make a difference and social media is real life, well here is the proof. Without you all my book would not have happened you inspired the publishers to read my voice, my flight I would be still saving for to go to Australia after three years of not being home, my yoga teacher training with @blissology would never had happened thanks to his incredible awsesomenss.
So remember not to ignore the hope it is all around everywhere you look. Dont let it get lost in the negativity or chaos. A special thanks to @yogicbynature @amyweckermd and @supermomtraci for reminding me of my worth when I forget it.
When a woman is in a state of rapture she is standing in her power. Not for anyone but to feel her full range of her emotions and to stop teetering in the nasty neighborhood of diminishment and self doubt. She feels like she can fly which, is not usual in this denoting system of this society/culture. The only thing that offers a women or any human full pleasure in their life experience is self love/acceptance with rapture in their body. Our bodies are built for pleasure with 8000 nerve endings to taste, touch, feel, see and hear. Our bodies are capable of feeling ecstasy and not just attached to sex; as society would have us think. Eight thousand nerve endings teach us all freedom, self reliance, and help us to find our higher purpose. They show us joy and sadness and everything in between. When we ignore our ability to feel and our pleasure or only think of it as sex, we become blocked, we hurt others and we enslave ourselves in daily life, like work, kids, driving, cook, fitness, relationships, chores, bills etc without feeling any joy. Many of us are spending our life in a perpetual state of frustration, depression, anger, shame, judgment, blame, ego non healing state and resentment. We need to learn to reconnect with ourselves through the tools of life like senses and arts of life so we can allow ourselves to reconnect with our joy and pleasure on a daily basis in everything we do.
I am a mother, a woman, a human just like you all. Many of you see me & others and label. For the women who judge each other. I am sorry for the pain you have received & that it makes you hurt others for the fear of the things you do not understand & judge. I hope that you find the love you are looking for & deserve. I hope you know that I feel your pain as you make me feel it, with your judgement, but I hold space for you & only love you harder. For all the men that make sex from everything they see. I hope you also find the love you are looking for too & see that women are not just objects to satisfy your needs. Our sensuality & bodies are a place of life & worship that created you/ your children. I hope you know sex, sensuality & lust it is human but not the way we treat women here on social media. To everyone: so many of us are taught to keep a lid on anything & everything outrageous. To turn off what makes us come alive. Well that led me to my attempt on life. My journey now is about living wholly in my faults, challenges & beauty. I am no longer turning off my life force. This isn’t about you. This is about living fully for my daughter so she sees she can. I am no longer turning off my feeling, my sensuality, my individuality as that turns out my lights. Everyone is perfect yet none of us feel that way because of our culture teaches us to hate, criticise others & ourselves. I no longer wish to be part of that. There is no human alive today who was not created & held inside the living altar of a woman. The feminine is part of us, our deepest intuition, sense of community, connection, vulnerability & sense of spiritual morality and consciousness, it is what is life. Lets drop the dogmas/untruth & the transfer of pain to others with judgment/shame. Lets stop taking the wind out of each others sails, we need focus on fighting the self hatred that comes from living in a cultures that devalues us. I have never considered myself beautiful but I am deciding to change that for my daughter so I don’t hurt others, I hope you do too, if not for you for our future generations. I hope you all see you are the love you are looking for and the change.
When I put photos of myself out there, I can’t tell you the number of people who are quick to judge. I have also had my photos misappropriated and used by others for their own purposes, which breaks my heart.
In Europe, I can go into a sauna naked with strangers, and we’ll sit and have a conversation like people in any other normal situation. Yet if I post a swimsuit or an underwear photo on social media, suddenly I’m a bad mother, a porn star, a woman of little value and an individual underserving of respect. In the same way, I can be on the beach in a bikini, yet if I wear a short skirt in the street, I’ll be questioned about whether I’m setting a good example as a mother. Less clothing isn’t a crime on the beach and it shouldn’t be on social media, nor does it make anyone suddenly a bad person.
It hurts every time someone puts a label on me when they don’t even know me. How is it that humans can hate so much?
I’ll tell you why: it’s because we all live in fear of what’s different or unfamiliar.
Let’s not project our fears onto others
Why is it that when someone reveals their body, we get defensive or feel the need to criticize them? When someone does something we don’t agree with, why does it hit such a nerve? Why do we sometimes act in ways that are detrimental to our goals and relationships?
The answer to these questions is because deep down these things resonate with an issue that we have about ourselves. You see, nothing external has the ability to challenge or hurt us unless we feel unstable internally.
So let’s stop asking what’s wrong with life and other people, and start asking what we need to change so that these external factors no longer challenge us or have the power to make us act out of fear and hatred. How can you take responsibility for yourself and your life, so that you act from a place of love and acceptance?

People ask me about being turned on whilst doing yoga. They ask me when you are practicing are you turned on? I have never found an answer for this to help people understand it isn’t sexual, its sensual, but here goes…. You are alive by your senses, you are alive on all that your body allows you to experience in this beautiful life, by what you can feel, hear, touch, taste and smell. It is a sensual nature that is a lust for life (that discovery phase children often have naturally, that enthusiasm we miss as adults, that I don’t know everything so let me be open to all that is and learn mindset that we lose with age). In terms of today’s society understanding it…..it’s that lust in sexual relationships before one connects to another physical human, where every touch and smell and movement makes our body’s react in wonder and yearning for more and this is what makes magic and what makes true connection in an intimate state if you are with yourself or another. Sexuality is only powerful when you learn to bring alive your senses other wise it’s animalistic (the need to recreate make our species survive). So right now when I move in yoga, fitness and dance clothed or naked I feel my senses bringing lust for life again, nothing to do with sex/sexuality but everything to do with my body being alive and turned on by life, in its most awaken state of life. It is freedom to me and the greatest gift and antidote for me to all problems, my depression, trauma and challenges because all I am is being me, fully, unapologetically alive; experiencing all without an expectation on my shoulders or a thought to imprison me, just being and revelling in the now and its F#@cking BEAUTIFUL to be here and experience it even if only for a moment.
I just got a hardcopy of my book in the post and I am a little blown away actually. From a girl who could barely read in year 4 to a girl at 35 now published. These photos here and the ones in my book are from incredible Olivia Nachle I met Olivia at my teacher training in Bali last year with Blissology (Eoin Finn is one of the most incredible teachers of life, yoga and humans I have ever met).
I took these photos for me with Olivia, not knowing a year and a half later they would be placed in a book to sell to the public. It is strange how life works…Olivia herself is one of the most kindness, humblest and beautiful souls I have ever met. Her art speaks from the heart and shows the souls of her subjects.
”…..When I first became a mother, I had lost an unborn child the year before. It was heartbreaking. As a result, I set myself crazy parenting expectations and tried so hard to be the ”perfect” mum that it nearly broke me. In the end, I realised that I was going to offer my daughter much more happiness if I simply followed what felt right to me in the moment, rather than running myself in the the ground trying to fulfil lots if inherited expectations that felt like they were holding me prisoner. We are all more brilliant than we will ever realise, so it’s time to forget about all the lurking ”musts” and ”shoulds” and embody the only thing we can: ourselves. It’s time to trust and believe in ourselves….”

Sharing ourselves unapologetically is how healing begins and life, its untruth and shame stop controlling us. It is a very hard journey to do this and never easy every time I do. People pull us apart no matter what we say or do. However, this is my life and this is my story. This is your life and this is your story. Make it a bestseller. Don’t sell it short by hiding the best bits that make you who you are today, the page turners, the cliff hangers, the bits that make your story epically like no other yet lovable and make others realize they are not alone at the same time …No matter if society says it is not ok or others or is ok, wont change it, make it go away. Only you can by owning it, so it doesn’t own you and haunt your future. So you can use it as a guide post instead of a hitching post. The more I accept it with honesty and rawness the more I can let it go and make space for better tomorrows. The more I own my story the more I can use the strength from what I have gone through to write better tomorrows for the rest of my life instead of bringing the past to haunt my future. We are all villains, victims, heroes and so much more in the story of life. We are not one thing alone but if we own every moment we can all also write better stories and make better tomorrows without the past no longer writing our future as we no longer need to blame, shame and judge the world and others to feel better or justify what life gave us. Instead we use it for expansion and put it as personal evolution. Own it!
Are you ready to create your real wealth your health and make the rest of your life the best of your life?

Please don’t think I don’t know how hard it is to regain your fitness, because you see my now moments. Here is me 36.5 weeks pregnant and now. Not because it was easy but because it was worth it. Breathing in and breathing out every single day is hard, fighting for your dreams is hard. There is no after glow, even after you get your goal, it’s daily work to maintain. The after glow is the sweat from the daily hard work it never ends. My body right now isn’t luck. It’s hard work. My body is a reflection of my lifestyle a 8 year journey so far. Through one pregnancy loss, another pregnancy, postnatal depression and more. It is not a 30 day program to get fit or flexible. When you look at peoples posts here don’t compare your chapter 1 to their chapter 50 . When you see them doing the things you want to do or having a body you admire, remember it isn’t easy. Remember that they had a starting point too….Where they are now, was not where they began! @ashley.horner has been a huge inspiration to me and her programs.
