Discovering and Embracing Our Oneness

Good morning everyone! <3 I wanted to start the week off with a bit of a reflective post, relating to a beautiful quote I read the other day by Black Elk. If you keep up with my Instagram page, you’ll already be familiar with my love for beautiful quotes and inspiring messages… So, let’s stick with that theme for today’s post. 😉 “The peace which is the most important, is that which comes to the souls of people when they realize their relationship, their oneness with the universe.” -Black Elk I fell in love with this quote because I feel it to be an absolute truth in my own life… Once this peace came to me, this understanding (of the ‘bigger picture’ so to speak), my life and perspective was forever changed. Now, this doesn’t mean that my everyday is sunshine and lollipops, but it does mean that I understand things have meaning. Coincidence does not exist. Everything in this life is a lesson… and sometimes it takes a lot of reflection to find a …

Othello Tunnels

Exploring Othello Tunnels in Hope, BC

Good morning loves! <3 It’s been a little bit since my last post, so I really hope you’re all doing well, enjoying the summer, and keeping cool! You’ve probably heard by now, of the raging fires in British Columbia… I believe there are 123 active fires at the moment. Consequently, the air quality where we live is very poor. We are immersed in a huge smoke cloud, and can no longer see the mountains… That being said, I believe rain is on the horizon! It looks as though it may start to cool down a bit next week, as we’re finally seeing some rain clouds in the forecast! Let us take a moment to really feel the rain, and believe it’s presence is upon us.  It’s not so nice to be outside in this smoky weather, so Irek and I have been hiding out in our apartment, with our pretty kitty cat, Petrie Dumbledore. However, we did manage to get out a few days ago and explore a beautiful place called Othello Tunnels. The tunnels …

The Happy Herd Farm Sanctuary

Good morning! I’m so excited to share a little bit about our visit to The Happy Herd Farm Sanctuary! Irek and I have been wanting to visit for months now, so last Saturday we headed to Aldergrove to meet all of the beautiful animals at Happy Herd! 🙂 Happy Herd is the first farm animal sanctuary on the West Coast- they officially opened in 2014 and have since touched the lives of so many animals (and humans alike). The sanctuary is the most beautiful, peaceful, loving place I’ve been… I was in heaven! We got to meet all of the different animals that call Happy Herd home, including: Baby the Donkey, Larry and Moe- the resident turkeys, Lucy the pig, Sparky the Cow… and many more! You can tell the animals are showered with love and kindness, as they themselves are gentle, friendly, and peaceful… except the white goat… don’t pet the white goat! hehe 😉 but on a serious note, JillyBean the white goat was an SPCA seizure. It took Stephen and Diane a …

Loving, Growing, and Flowing Through Life

Good morning, I hope everyone is having a beautiful week! <3 At the moment I’m listening to an audiobook book called “The Four Agreements”… This particular book has been on my mom’s book shelf for as long as I can remember. I never felt drawn to it over the years but it’s come into my life now… For a reason, no doubt. 😉 I love that I have a connection to my mom while listening to it. I can picture so clearly the copy that sits in her living room, to this day. 🙂 My mom is such a sweet soul, and the kindest person I’ve ever known. I love listening to it, thinking about how much I love and cherish her. As soon as I started reading The Four Agreements, I knew immediately that the words were meant for me… Sometimes, things just show up in your life at exactly the right moment. I no longer believe in coincidence, so when something speaks to me, or jumps out at me, I pay close attention. …

Vancouver Yoga

Yoga Update + Relief for Sore Muscles

Good morning beautiful people! I hope everyone had an amazing long weekend. The weather in Vancouver has been glorious lately, full sun and 25+ everyday! I hope it’s beautiful where you are as well! 🙂 First off, I just wanted to share a little bit about where I’m at in my yoga journey… I recently made the decision to start on my path to teaching. I can honestly say, teaching yoga was never on my radar… If you told me 5 years ago that this would be my focus, I wouldn’t have taken you seriously. But yoga has come into my life for a reason… It’s become a form of expression, a way of life, and the path to divine love. I will be spending a month in Bali next spring for an intensive 200 hour yoga teacher training course. I’m so excited and am simply allowing my decisions to be lead by my heart… Because of this, I’ve been able to find my own truths, and honour them at the deepest level. It’s so important …

Kelowna

Birthday Road Trip to The Okanagan Valley

Good morning! <3 It’s been a few weeks since my last post so I’m excited to share some new photos with you guys! Going forward, I’ll be posting something new every week, so stay tuned for more content (including lots of yoga posts)! Last week was my 28th birthday, and contrary to how most people feel, I do not feel old, and I am not anxious to be reaching the infamous, daunting 30. Instead, I feel vibrant, healthy, and grateful to be able to experience all of the amazing things this universe has to offer. To be honest, I am not a huge fan of birthdays… I’m not really sure why, I just have never have been. Usually on my birthday, Irek and I stay home with our cat and order takeout… But this year we thought it was time to switch things up a bit. 😉 Our first stop on the way to Kelowna (which is a 4.5 hour drive from Vancouver) was Alexandra Provincial Park. Irek saw some photos on Instagram of this …

Magical Moments in Montezuma, Costa Rica

Good morning loves! I hope everyone is well and having a fabulous weekend so far. 🙂 I am heading to Toronto in a couple of days to visit my beautiful sister, who is almost 6 months pregnant! Very exciting times for us. So, seeing as it will be a busy week coming up, I wanted take take some time and share with you some of my favourite photos from Montezuma, Costa Rica. Montezuma is a beautiful place. It’s located near the southern tip of the Nicoya Peninsula and attracts many foreign backpackers and tourists, looking for an organic, natural experience. The town is surrounded by gorgeous beaches, rivers, and waterfalls. The exploring in Montezuma is endless- we can’t wait to head back once we’re in Costa Rica again. In Montezuma, we stayed at a beautiful Airbnb (Casacocobolo), which is situated right at the top of a hill overlooking the entire coastline. It was the perfect location, tucked away in nature, but close enough to jump on our ATVS and grab a nice lunch in town. There is a really cute …

Abundance; It’s All Perspective

Good morning! 🙂 I just wanted to share a little bit about my thoughts on abundance… I recently finished reading “A New Earth” by Eckhart Tolle and something he said about abundance really resonated with me. He said that anytime you’re feeling like you’re living from a place of scarcity, go outside and immerse yourself in nature. Observe abundance all around you… Observe the abundance of greenery, the vast blue sky overhead, the sand between your toes, the trees, the sun, insects, whatever it is. Nature is abundant- it is lacking nothing, and neither are you. This simple practice is something I’ve implemented everyday of my life since reading that chapter of “A New Earth”. And let me tell you, it works, it really does. Anytime I’m feeling down or a bit off, I simply take a walk, and I observe everything… Every bird flying overhead, every leaf swaying in the wind, every child laughing with innocence and grace. It’s all perspective. Our whole world is shaped by what we choose to believe is true. So, …

It’s Time to Wake Up

So many things have been hidden from us over the years… We’ve been conditioned to work and live systematically, and not in alignment with our true selves. It’s time to wake up.  Irek and I are on an intense and beautiful spiritual journey, and we want you to have the opportunity to expand your consciousness, and wake up to the truth. Because, the truth is out there, it’s available to us. It wasn’t always, but it is now, we just have to be willing to open our eyes to a new way of thinking and living. Without getting too deep, I will say this… I believe in a universe that is much more amazing, and a million times more mysterious than we could have ever imagined. You may have heard me talk about Gaia before, but if not, this is essentially what it is… It’s an uncensored library inclusive of hundreds of documentaries, series, and clips about topics such as: human origins, energy, quantum physics, yoga and meditation, spirituality, extra-terrestrials and much more. Gaia has had a …

Four Seasons Costa Rica

Discovering Costa Rica With Four Seasons

Looking back on my time in Costa Rica, I have to say, it was one of the most amazing travel experiences I’ve had. The country is more nature than anything else. It’s raw, organic, and beautiful beyond words. The week we visited was one of the last weeks of the dry season and we actually experienced one of the first heavy rains since December 16th! We were told one of the best times to visit the country (although it’s beautiful all year round) is in December, nearing the end of the wet season. Everything is lush, green and plentiful… We’ll definitely be heading back later this year or early 2018. 🙂 During our first week in Costa Rica, we stayed at the lovely Four Seasons Resort at Peninsula Papagayo, which is located on the north Pacific coast, in the northwest province of Guanacaste. The hotel has 2 beautiful beaches on either side, one facing the sunrise, and one the sunset. In the mornings, from your room, you can hear the Howler monkeys making their morning calls to …
