The Surrender Experiment

Good morning loves!! <3 I recently finished reading a book that touched my heart in so many ways. It’s called “The Surrender Experiment” by Michael A. Singer. My husband read the book a couple months ago and kept telling me how much I would love it, and he was right. I practically had tears streaming down my face through the entire book! And not because it was overly emotional or sad or anything like that…. It was simply because the author’s words touched me to my core. The only other book I read that had the same effect on me was “I Can See Clearly Now” by Wayne Dyer. And actually, these two books share a similar message, so perhaps this message keeps showing up in my life for a reason. In “The Surrender Experiment”, Michael Singer takes us through the journey of his lifetime. He decides early on in his spiritual journey to simply let go, and let life take hold of the reins. Wherever life decides to take him, he accepts it with …

Find Meaning, and Move Along

Good morning loves, <3 Today I want to share a little bit about dealing with people and situations in your life that don’t necessarily match well with your energetic vibration… As you know already, yoga and meditation are a huge part of my life, and for me, they really are the key to sustaining balance and peace in my heart. But regardless of how much you meditate, or how peaceful you are (or at least try to be), situations will always arise that test your resolve and your ability to keep the peace. I don’t often have much negativity surrounding me but it does happen from time to time. I think the number one lesson I’ve learned when challenging experiences arise, is that you always have to come back to your heart… Come back to that quiet place within you, that knows the truth. <3 I find it very difficult to sift through intense, conflicting emotions because I am usually in such a loving state… So, the only thing I can tell you is that …

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 …

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. …

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 …

Finding Your Calm Through Meditation

In late 2016 I started to take my meditation practice much more seriously. Prior to this year, I was meditating sporadically and found myself struggling to adopt a routine that worked for me. But, after a few months of practice, I have now come to a place where I look forward to it each day and have come to cherish both the silence and profound understanding that meditation brings. As for the structure of my meditation routine, there isn’t really much to tell. I know myself well enough now to know that I don’t do too well with strict schedules or too much structure. So, sometimes I’ll mediate immediately following breakfast, and before heading to the yoga studio. And sometimes, I’ll meditate directly after my yoga practice, before heading back home. I allow myself to go with the flow and permit my schedule to vary from day to day, if necessary. This easy-going mindset has actually aided me when keeping up with my daily practice. I think it’s so important to understand that meditation gets easier over time and …

We’re all Connected

It’s crazy to think that most of us go through our lives feeling totally disconnected and disempowered. We believe that life is just happening to us, and all we can do is react… But the truth is, we are all connected; connected to each other, to the planet, and to the endless, infinite energies that exist within this incredible universe. Once you’re able to break through and tap into this infinite energy (divine love if you will), you’ll experience life on a much deeper level… your days will start to have meaning, and purpose. You’ll realize that you are the co-creator of your life and that you have the power. I urge you to take care this year… Meditate and do yoga as much as possible, nourish yourself with plant-based foods, take care of your physical body, and most importantly, treat others with kindness and compassion (including our animal friends). Remember that you can manifest anything you want… we all can; we’re all connected. Namaste, Molly xx Don’t forget to sign up for #TheNamasteChallenge with me! Head to …

Veganism in France

Irek and I recently spent 2 weeks in France and we divided our time between Paris, Nice and Cannes. We originally planned to spend some time in Monaco as well, but the trip ended up being quite hectic so we figured it was best to do Monaco next year. Coming from my vegan bubble in Vancouver, I was quite disappointed and discouraged to discover how lacking the country is when it comes to plant-based options (call me ignorant / naive – going into the trip, I was both). Now, when I say my ‘vegan bubble’, what I mean is that Vancouver is super progressive in terms of the acceptance and continual growth of people leading fully plant-based, cruelty-free lives. There are tons and tons of vegan and vegetarian restaurants all around Metro-Vancouver as well as the outskirts. Vancouver actually ranks in the top 3 cities of the world in regards to the amount of vegan restaurants we have… I will clarify that in Paris you can definitely find vegan restaurants – they exist and they’re lovely. …

Have Faith in Yourself

It’s so easy to second guess ourselves, or think we aren’t good enough to accomplish something. But these thoughts do not serve us, they deter us from striving to reach our goals, they hold us back from becoming something better. I’m currently working on a couple of projects that have really tested me, and have shown me how important it is to have faith in ourselves. It took me 26 years to believe that I was actually capable of achieving great things. We truly are meant to have an amazing life but that will never happen unless we become vulnerable, and allow ourselves to truly be who we are at our core. I always wanted to have a blog where I could share parts of my life, my journey, my travels etc. and inspire others. But it took me a year to actually launch it… An entire year of questioning and doubting myself. I realize now that it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks of you. YOU have to love yourself and believe in yourself, …
