Magic is alive

Wed, 05/15/2019 - 16:52

MAGIC IS ALIVE. Magic is a return—to yourself, to Source, to all things earthly and cosmic. Magic is deepening and trusting your intuition; it’s the way you just know, the moments when you think, “of course.” Magic is co-creating with the Universe—collaborating, even as it trolls you. Recognizing there is […]

On Self Love

Sat, 05/04/2019 - 14:38

Listen. It’s hard to learn how to love the shit out of yourself in a world that functions best when you don’t. It’s challenging to feel as though you’re enough and you have enough in a capitalistic, patriarchal society that thrives on convincing you how much more you need and […]

On Ritual

Tue, 04/30/2019 - 14:32

Every morning I sit in my favorite chair, surrounded by my plants, a cup of coffee in my hand, sage burning, my phone on airplane mode. I don’t check email or scroll through Instagram. I don’t put any pressure on myself to do anything—and instead give myself a few moments […]

I haven’t spoken to my mom in 5 years

Wed, 04/24/2019 - 14:28

The older I get, the more I physically resemble my mother. I look in the mirror, and I see her face. This is complicated for me, because, by my own volition, I don’t have a relationship with her. From my youth I remember her show-stopping charisma—her penchant for adventure—intermingled with […]

On Spiritual Growth

Tue, 04/16/2019 - 14:23

Sometimes I just want everything to fuck right off. I don’t always *want* the drama, the stress, the WORK of having to process and manage every goddamn feeling and energetic exchange. Sometimes I want to numb and distract and cope, instead of explore what’s going on beneath the surface, the […]

No One Freaked Out

Thu, 04/11/2019 - 14:23

I canceled plans and rescheduled meetings, and it was FINE. No one freaked out. Nothing imploded. Everyone was chill about the fact that I was sick and desperately needed to rest. And yet, prior to canceling plans and rescheduling meetings, I agonized. Will they be upset? How will this impact […]

I need more than love

Wed, 04/03/2019 - 14:11

I don’t believe that love is all we need. I need honesty. Loyalty. A shared value system. A willingness to talk about the hard things and stick around when things get messy. I need ride or die people in my life, and that’s not just about love. I don’t believe […]

I Ran Home

Mon, 04/01/2019 - 14:48

Throughout my childhood, I was teased and bullied quite a bit. Being one of only two Persian kids at my elementary school (my sister being the other), my ancestry and name (among other things) were the source of many playground taunts. Growing up in LA in the 90s—during Desert Storm—being […]

Keep Breathing

Wed, 03/27/2019 - 13:45

Damnit this week has been hard. Yes, I know it’s only Wednesday—I said what I said. This. Week. Has. Been. Hard. I feel exhausted and depleted on every level. Everything is messy and in various states of disarray. I don’t have any answers, just an endless string of questions and […]

Have fun with your body

Wed, 03/20/2019 - 14:14

I hope that you’re having fun with your body. And if that’s not yet accessible to you, I hope that you’re learning to heal within your own skin—to reclaim that which belongs to you, and only you. And above all, I hope that you feel both supported and autonomously driven […]

Get out of your own damn way

Tue, 03/12/2019 - 17:51

Have you ever wanted something so badly, while simultaneously believing that you can’t have it? That you’ll never “get there?” That it’s just not possible for you? I got my first muscle up at 35 years old, with absolutely no gymnastics background, and two herniated discs that sometimes inhibit my […]

3 Ways to Be a Better Empath

Thu, 03/07/2019 - 14:51

The best part about being an empath is feeling everyone else’s feelings. The worst part is feeling everyone else’s feelings. As an empath, a healer, and a Highly Sensitive Person, it can be easy to be overwhelmed by other people’s emotions. Before I learned how to manage this gift, I […]

You’re a Queen & You Know it

Wed, 02/20/2019 - 17:52

PICTURE THIS: You’re so hype on your own damn life. You’re doing work that brings meaning to your life and adds value to others. You go to bed every night believing that you did enough—that you are enough. You’re well rested. Hydrated. Moisturized. Magic lives within your bones. You don’t […]

Anti Hustle

Sun, 02/17/2019 - 18:00

Sunday morning, 0845, I opened my eyes and drew the curtains to wash the bedroom with late morning light. I slept until I felt like waking, made coffee, and then proceeded to lounge around in my robe and do absolutely nothing for the next few hours. In our perfectionist culture […]

Becoming

Thu, 02/07/2019 - 15:00

In every moment you are BECOMING —and in those moments you have a choice: to become who you think you’re supposed to be, based on societal standards of beauty, success, and status—or to become more of your authentic yourself, the version of you that shows up unapologetically and courageously, even […]

The world is on fire

Wed, 02/06/2019 - 15:06

I sat in my car and cried before picking up my son last night. It was a rough Tuesday—the kind in which the Universe trolled me hard from multiple angles. Nothing went as planned. Technology was not my friend. My kid got injured at school (he’s okay). I received some […]
