if you spied on my wishes and manifestation journal, you'd find things like:
"I wish to release all relationships that don't serve my highest good"
"I wish to have a sexy, beautiful new Charles & Keith handbag that I can use for a long time"
"I wish to be more devoted to my yoga practice"
"... to afford a good therapist"
"...an amazing Bose sound system for my music"
"...build a Zen corner"
"...many more beautiful coffee dates, wine and restaurant discoveries"
All together, in one page
Because I've decided that in my life and in my truth - all parts of me, all my spectrums, are human, valid and beautiful. I will no longer glorify one side of me whilst judging another, or not letting polarity exist within myself. I won't waste time imposing limited, black-and-white decrees on myself like "you can't want pretty things or a good life if you're spiritual"
I'd rather enjoy how duality and contrast is in our very nature, and how finding balance is our life's journey 🌓
Being in touch with your side that can embrace concepts like detachment and transcending the material world, like Shiva
But also honouring the side that engages, enjoys and co-creates with all the beautiful, tangible things in the physical world, like Shakti
And finding love and balance in the meeting of these two, just like the divine pair who are such beautiful complements to each other,
My spirituality and sensuality, my love-and-light side and my dark shadow self, my inner child and my inner old soul, my innocence and my world-weariness,
my inner cottagecore hippie who wants to grow her own food, walk barefeet on the grass in the mountain sun with windswept hair and bare, sun-kissed skin and go on yoga retreats,
as well as my boujie glam side who enjoys treating herself to the urban luxuries of spas, salons, fine wine, pearls, five-star luxury, strappy silk gowns and beautiful sandals,
they are all equally honourable parts of me and I deserve to let them all exist simultaneously in this wild human life 🌚
to just be whoever, whatever I want and pursue whatever FEELS most right and aligned at that given moment,
Just because, why not?
