"When I come out of that quiet, meditative, creative state and I am moved by what I have made. When I have that long pause and the piece tells me it's story rather than ask me what more it needs" -Ellie.
Yes!!! It's finished

Every day of my life I open my heart to finding love. I’ve been on my own for a few years, and although I’ve had no luck in the romance department I won’t be giving up. I intend to find that special someone that I can love for the rest of my life.
During the time I’ve spent on my own, I’ve learned a lot about myself, including lessons that have shaped me into who I am today.
I won’t accept the same treatment I’ve had in the past, nor will I settle for the next man that comes along. People used to say you can’t be picky, but I say yes You can!! This is my life and I choose to be happy. The man I choose will make me laugh, he will love me, respect me, and accept me for who I am.
He will not try to change me, physically and/or verbally abuse me, betray me or treat me unkind.
I want someone that will fall in love with me each morning, and tell me how beautiful I am each night. I don’t want someone to spoil me with material possessions, but rather to spoil me with affection.... is that so hard?
All I want is a best friend, a soul mate, a companion for life. I want to go on adventures together, discover new places, teach other new things, work as a team to build a life of happiness together.
To all the woman out there and men..... you can be picky, and you can take as long as you want. Don’t settle for anything less than you deserve. ❤️ #Yoga
Quick flash back to the beginning of the month when JHP coordinators Becca and Sophie attended the monthly GAP (Grad and Professional) Programs meeting in Philly. They had the opportunity to hear John Ferreira of Finch Brands speak! John shared with us the findings of a recent survey of 998 non-orthodox Jewish young people about their relationship to their Jewish identity, practice, as interests. We're looking forward to the next meeting in November!
I know too well the anxiety, depression, pain, guilt, and rage that comes from experiencing this injustice. What isn’t talked about enough is the fact that most women are assaulted by someone they knew, like a friend or moms boyfriend, or uncle. And worse, most young girls who have the courage to tell an adult are told by that adult to stay silent. What I learned in my masters program about the neurological and biological impact of sexual assault was eye opening and lead the way for my own healing. Please know: Sexual assault is a traumatic experience that impacts the human nervous system, health, mind and soul. And If you’re also a survivor of sexual assault I want you to know you can heal. It takes time and dedication and I know you’re strong enough. I’m happy to share what has helped me, just pm me your email address. Lastly if you’re a parent of a little girl, terrified that this could happen to your daughter, here is the single 2 most important things you can do to prevent it: 1) heal your own trauma and learn to regulate your nervous system because your daughter learns this from you and if she does not know how to stabilize her nervous system on her own she is vulnerable of trusting untrustworthy people. you are her #coregulator 2) Be with someone who respects you. The way you and your partner interact teaches your daughter this is the norm. So if your partner is disrespectful, abusive, doesn’t value your opinion, et centers, then your daughter will believe this is okay to be treated in this way and she will develop #learnedhelplessness making her more susceptible to perpetrators. Let’s change the future for ourselves and our daughters. #metoo
On the spiritual journey.... One reason why the spiritual journey is so hard....Because people want answers that make sense to them right NOW.
Most of what is happening doesn't make sense to the logical part of the brain that wants to define it.
We as humans try to control, try to compartmentalize, try to make sense from our current state of consciousness...but it doesn't work that way.
Look back 5 years ago, look at the part of you that didn't understand and was so confused. If she knew what you know now she still probably wouldn't have accepted it.
She most likely wasn't able to see that large of a picture back then.
So let it be and accept where you are at.
Please understand that the journey is unique to everyone. Some struggle for years, some move through it quickly, some are stuck, some feel physical pain coupled with emotional pain, some stop there, some keep going, some don't look at their wounds at all.
Everyone is unique and that decision is based on so many factors....karma, conditioning, nurturing, fears, emotions, limited beliefs, ancestry, free will etc etc.
So sometimes you want answers that you just can't have. You are navigating a world that is emotional not physical, you are swimming deep in the seas of the subconscious, you are playing with layers and layers of dimensions and souls and spirits.
There is only ONE thing that was consistent on my journey and the journey of everyone I help....you must surrender the way you thought it should be or how it should show up or be and allow for something so much greater.
Surrender does NOT mean settling. It means moving out of your way to realize that you are a co-creator of course, but you can only co-create for the highest good when you fully understand what your highest good truly is.
I teach woman to surrender into love, not fall victim to it or their journey.
It's rough I know. I wouldn't go back and redo my early to mid 30's for anything in the world but there is always light on the other side you just have to let go of when that light will shine.
The Universe is pulling back the layers of false conditioning so you can access your.... Cont Below 👇🏽
In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit. ~ Albert Schweitzer | I am so thankful to you all for the love + suppport 💜
The biggest lie we tell ourselves is that we need anything from anyone else to be happy. There is absolutely nothing others can give you that you can't give to yourself - in fact, it HAS to come from you first! The universe is broadcasting love to you all day long. It does not come from others; it is being broadcasted from within you! You are YOUR OWN source of happiness and love and joy and connection. What conditions have you been placing on your happiness and your worthiness?! What have you been waiting to hear from someone else to make you finally feel like you are loveable and "enough"? Today, start telling yourself those things, because I promise that YOU are the one that you've been waiting for 💛✨🙏🏻 #loveyourselffirst#empowerment#crazyforjoy

#MeToo | and now I listen to every gut feeling like the rumbling Truth that it is. I talk more in depth about being sexually assaulted while traveling in my ✨You Are Intuitive ✨interview with one of my favorite Priestess Entrepreneurs @danamachacek | To get access to that conversation when it goes Live (in November), you can go to the link in Dana's bio or register here: http://zonapellucida.net/you-are-intuitive-series/ | After the interview, I remember wondering why THAT story came up.

Don't throw your little brown bottles away when they are empty!! With a few little additions you will never need buy roller bottles, serum bottles or misters again.
1. Remove the labels in warm soapy water. Rub some lemon on the bottles to get rid of any sticky residue.
2. Purchase some Roller Bottle tops from @coconutmybody so you can instantly turn your empties into rollers.
3. Purchase some misting tops from Diffusional, @shareoils or @coconutmybody for instant mini misters perfect for facial toners.
4. Purchase some droppers from the above peeps for instant serum bottles.
See? Soooo many ways to repurpose your bottles and give them life 👌🏻
I struggled to find the right words for today. I wanted to share my heavy heart in response to the outpouring from other women who have experienced sexual harassment, assault or abuse. I wanted to acknowledge that it's okay not to be okay. It is important to feel feelings and I continue to seek out spaces and communities that encourage just that. When was the last time, as an adult, that you admitted you were afraid out loud? Told someone how you were really feeling without fear of judgement? Took the time to grieve - something our culture would have us do behind closed doors? Instagram feels more and more like one big advertisement these days - yet another space where produced and stylized imagery tells us what our lives should look like - and I just can't get behind it. So here's what the actual feels are in my life today; I'm still struggling to find my way. I'm still working on quieting the noise in my head about food and my body. I am still re-learning my worth. I feel sad about the state of the world. I am finding that being single can be both incredibly empowering and lonely, and it's okay for those two realities to coexist in one experience. I want to feel my feelings and am not willing to hide that for the comfort of others'. I am so grateful to all those who live and love openly, who aren't afraid of their shadow selves and who support and encourage REAL, open conversation in a world where so few and so little feels genuine. ❤️
As good intentioned as it may be we just can't get #allthethings done at once when it comes to branding. It's like having all this food on your plate and trying to finish it all at once. Take your time, do the things you're good at first. If you're good at writing, work on that; if you're good at photography or social media, start with that and knock it out the park! ✨
Having low libido and you are on the birth control pill?
The B.C. contraceptive increases the production of Sex-Hormone Binding Globulin, which can decrease testosterone levels overtime... affecting the sex drive.
Goddess, it is your birthright to feel Juicy, Awakened and TURNED ON BY Life! <3
There are several important B-vitamins, such as B9 (folate) for libido and vitality that the birth control pill makes difficult to absorb.
In addition, if we are go-go-going in our 20's, 30's and 40's... when we make that beautiful shift into Moonpause, we might lack a the luster we had before. That is because during Moonpause, our estrogen is shifted from being made primarily in the ovaries to our adrenals and fat cells. If our adrenals are a bit undernourished, then so may be our libido!
I share some of my favorite adaptogenic herbs for sexual vitality in my Aphrodisiac Tonic with Lemongrass Recipe! Get it at www.moderngoddesslifestyle.com or click the link in my profile.
I have been sharing this delicious elixir with my clients before our Intuitive Womb Healing sessions and it has been requested so often that I decided to share it on the Modern Goddess Lifestyle Cooking Blog! Let me know if you have any questions.
Radiant Hormone Health is Yours!! Cheers to being turned on by life!
Me too...the first time it happened, I was 11.
I was crossing the street in front of our apartment building, by my mother’s side, when a man older than my father began to harass me sexually.
I learned that my curves were something to hide + that being a woman in this society wasn’t safe.
Being the oldest of three daughters + coming in at just under 5’2″, I had to learn how to protect myself.
The first time it happened at work, I was 19.
A balding Jewish man, with a wife + children of his own, decided to try to abuse his supervisory role + rubbed up against me…
I got so pissed that right then + there, I loudly proclaimed to the entire workplace that ‘nobody better fucking touch me again.‘
The men outnumbered women almost 3 to 1 there. Not one of them rose up to defend me. Not even the other supervisor.
Not that I needed it at that point.
Because by then, I’d been sexually harassed by strangers on the street more times than I can count, been followed home by a few creepy ones, had men expose themselves to me in public - on the street, on the train + at the pool.
Once I even held a classmate in a headlock because he smacked my leg on a dare from the other guys in class.
I still remember the horror on my math teacher’s face when he walked in to find one of his top female students fighting at the back of the class with a boy.
The thing is, I’ve seen this uninvited sexually aggressive behavior from young boys to old, gray-haired men.
When will it end?
When we band together + let them know *enough is enough*.
Because here’s what I know about women…we are not victims.
We will nurture + love you like only a goddess can, but fuck with us + we’re liable to go all #Kali on your ass...chopping off body parts + burning houses to the ground.
In all seriousness though, this is not okay, normal or healthy behavior.
It’s destructive, divisive + demeaning.
It’s a blatant disrespect + disregard for the feminine – from which all life comes.
When will it stop?
When we confront the truth of what is, give ourselves the space to heal + recognize it as a sign that we’re ready for better.
Who else? #MeToo
You don't have to be bare faced (free of makeup) to reclaim your divine self, intuition, and magic. There is magic in creating art with make up. Magic in contouring and highlighting, in sculpting, in applying various colors.⠀
You can reclaim your divine self, intuition and magic, and wear makeup. You can reclaim your divine self, intuition, and magic, and not wear makeup.
✨🍁Hope all of you had fulfilling weekends 💕 I can't believe it's almost November already!! This is our first Fall Season in AZ and I couldn't be more pleased. I'm still learning the land although we managed to find the perfect apple farm filled with veggies and pumpkins too! Apple picking in the mountains felt super surreal, I couldn't stop myself from smiling like a little girl while breathing in the beauty that surrounded us ⛰ It took a little while to get adjusted energetically out here but the neighbors we've been blessed with are making this new chapter in life a very beautiful one 🙏🏼 One of the things we wished to manifest in our lives coming out here was a network of people who could share their wisdom with us, stimulate our minds, and who were also striving for personal growth...we got so much of this and more 💕 Each of us are transplants from other regions of the country and don't have our families at arms reach. Inspiring all of us "loners" to come together and form a family within our community, sharing our unique stories and strengths with each other. If any of you out there have pondered moving out of your state or comfort zone , just do it ! The Universe will show you just how splendid the refresh button is. Our home is wherever we make it, and there is a whole wide world out their waiting for us to tap into all it has to offer 🤗🍁✨
Stop scrolling. Close your eyes. Redirect your attention to your breath and notice the quality of it. Is is slow and deep, or quick and shallow? Without judgement of your current quality of breath, take 5 deep belly breaths. Fully immerse yourself in the experience, following your breath all the way in and all the way out. Smile. Pause for appreciation before moving onto the next thing. 🙏🏼 #mindfulmoment#doyourfutureselfafavor

how can i better understand my emotional responses?
Still working through this one but it got me thinking about being more aware of my emotions as I’m reacting to or processing something. A lot of times we react out of these emotions (like anger, jealousy, fear, anxiety) when we should be pausing to think about it so we don’t do or say something we’ll regret later. Understanding our emotions is a complex journey and it’s not easy, but that first little step of breathing them all in and saying “hey, I hear you” makes such a difference! 🖤 deck: #wildunknown

Dear Mystical Woman::
I hear you and I feel you and I want you to know this
You must be connected to something deeper.
You must find what it is that makes your heart beat faster.
You must find the truth in your heart.
You must find the reason(s) why you came back to earth.
You must find what gifts you have to share with the world.
If you don't have purpose you will feel empty inside.
It doesn't matter if you're with your dream man or not. You must do this for yourself.
I quit every job I've ever had until I had my spiritual awakening at 30 years old.
I was miserable at every job. I almost convinced myself from the bs in my head that it was ME. That maybe in fact it was me that was just always going to be unhappy.
That was not the case for me and that's not the case for you.
I will tell you to be kind and patient with yourself.
Finding out about your purpose is not like finding a 4 leaf clover in the ground and then you are done.
It's an EVOLUTION.
It's a PROCESS.
You don't step into your new energy (your north node in your birth chart) overnight and you don't step in it until you have the courage to truly look at yourself, naked in the mirror and say yes, I am doing this and yes I am suffering here, yes I want more. Yes I am unhappy or unsatisfied or whatever it is you're feeling.
You must get to know your soul.
🔮🔮🔮🔮How do you know your soul?

THE FEAR OF BECOMING | Have you ever asked yourself, why? Why you do the things that you do? Where did you learn to do those things? Who taught you, that this was the only way to be? In the past few weeks I’ve been listening with an open heart to friends and clients…at the very bitter sweet beginning of their personal healing and growth journey. Sweet because of all the potential that lives on the other side…and bitter because of all the things they’ll have to leave behind. All the stories that you used to tell yourself about who you were and how you needed to be. About what it meant to be a woman. About what it meant to build a life. About what it meant to be a good little girl. About what it meant, to be you. These stories, they shape us and save us from the great unknown. Because when we finally decide to choose our path, we no longer have it decided for us. There is no longer a safety net of protection…of knowing what the out come will be. Of how people will react. Of what the world will think of us. On the other side, lives the possibility of radical self expression and true self acceptance. But also the chance that we’ll feel even more self doubt and fear than ever before. Because truly owning and becoming who we really are, doesn’t always feel magical. Or easy. Or simple. In fact, deep down we know that doing things “because, that’s how they’ve always been done….” sometimes feels like the better choice. No matter how numb and out of alignment they feel for us. So I get it. Life is long. And if you decide to take the leap, there is no guarantee what you’ll find on the other side. But if you never give yourself the chance? Then you’ll never know what you could have been.
I know I’m honest.
Like, super vulnerable (although there is definitely more to go).
I’m not sure about telling my #MeToo story, though.
It’s scary. My immediate reaction is “what if he sees and feels bad” (yup). And “but it’s not that bad, and was probably my fault and I let it happen” (yeh I can see how this looks).
The truth? (Shit am I really doing this?!) An ex (long long time ago now) wanted break-up sex and I didn’t. I said no, over and over. But he kept asking (not demanding). He made me feel like saying no made me stupid and like I didn’t care about him (he knew this would manipulate me). So I gave in. Because he wouldn’t. Because I felt I probably should do it, it’s what people do, right? The crying and wishing it would stop is what makes me know it wasn’t okay. The knowing I had done this lots before with him, but every other time I had said yes. This last time I said no and gave up when it fell on deaf ears.
Whilst this is my story, this is such a small part of the overall story.
The story of men who don’t know when a girl says no, and you think she might want to actually, you need to look in her eyes and feel her - is it fear or excitement in her eyes? Is she scared or feeling small and wants you not to think little of her?
I am shocked that I’m sharing this publicly, but I also know that holding it in as my story doesn’t help me at all, and if sharing it at all helps anyone feel less alone, or men to understand the little things a women might feel in certain situations, it’s worth it.
Self love is honesty, and my Goddess am I living that. How can you live your honesty today? It doesn’t have to be with the #MeToo movement - but your truth and your vulnerability will set you free, I promise 😘✨💘

Hello there everybody,
I want to share with you some toughts about my work.
Making this necklaces and earrings is a slow process ( I make one necklace or earring about 2-3 hours)and I have more and more orders. Please be patient with me, running a business is very hard work with a lot of things to do and sometimes I cannot do anything because my muse is sleeping or I have hard days .
BTW I love to do it, every step on it : the creating, the conversations about the custom orders, the photoshooting and editing pictures, preparing your packages to shipping etc etc .
I hope you really like what I do ! Your support makes me as strong as I am now. 💚
