Today marks 1 year since my husband and I permanently ditched alcohol! (Technically it would be a little over 2 years but we still partook in a few holiday cocktails the first go-round, so we made it official for a full & permanent ditch of alcohol on 3/25/16 and it's been the BEST decision we've ever made! Removing alcohol has been so liberating in so many ways!! You don't realize what an attachment it is and such a center of focus of so many activities and such a distraction until it's gone! Removing alcohol from our lives has given us such mental clarity, clean energy, an extremely happy & positive outlook on life and has allowed us to be more present with our children, our friends and family. It has also freed us to nurture our bodies, strengthen our minds, get more restful sleep & deepen our spiritual practice. We couldn't be any happier than we are this very moment! I'm so proud of our journey together to ultimate health, deep love & higher consciousness! I am so very grateful to have such an incredibly loving & supportive husband to do this wonderful thing called life with!! Cheers to a lifetime more of fun, wholesome, sober-living! * * #soberlife #holisticliving #soberissexy #clearmind #happyheart #happyfamily #ilovemyhusband #cleanliving #plantpower #liberation #dontneedadrink #mybodyismytemple #higherconsciousness #goodvibes #wholesome #thegoodlife #yogaeveryday #befree #justbreathe

Just thought I would share this sweetness.... In honor of World Water Day yesterday, there was a Global Meditation at 7pm CST to bless the water. We weren't able to make our way to any natural bodies of water like a river, swimming hole or ocean, so we held our own little sacred circle at home. We had a small bowl of water that each person passed as we took turns sharing our gratitude for clean water and our prayers for protecting earth's water resources....then the kids thought it would be fun to dunk their faces in the water and lap it up like a pup pup! We held hands and sang along to a beautiful Native American chant for healing water (from @srimati ) They were both so very sweet and took the sacred circle very seriously, especially Lulu! She's a natural at these little special ceremonies...a tiny little meditating, chanting, sacred circle pro! * #waterislife #sacredcircle #healingwater #worldwaterday #meditation

Today is World Water Day! Global Meditation for blessing of the water begins NOW! Stop what you are doing, sit in stillness, in gratitude, in prayer for our most precious resource. * Art by Brandon Boyd * #waterislife #worldwaterday

Aren't these beans so colorful & pretty?! They've been soaked and are now steaming away in a yummy broth - making a delish Vegan 16 Bean Soup for dinner tonight! Thanks to a little advance planning, it'll be ready right when we are home from the kids activities and hubby walks in the door from work. House should smell like a big ole' welcoming hug! 🙌🏻 * #plantpower #veganforlove #soupfordinner #wedontneedmeat #healthyfamily #happyfamily #realfood #wholefoods #eatyourveggies

My heart is broken, I literally feel physically ill and can't stop crying!! I just found out that my sweet cow and all the goats that Lulu and I have been visiting every day after school for the past 6 months....including the 4 baby goats that we've watched nurse their mommies and grow up all went to the slaughterhouse!!! We went to see them on Monday and they were gone...then I found out thru someone that knows the family that they are not just sweet family pets in a little family neighborhood, but are raised for slaughter!!! I had 12 goats growing up that were just family pets and were never raised for food...and that's what I thought this family was doing too, being that it was just a random little plot of land in a family neighborhood and not a "farm" They were so sweet and friendly, especially the cow! He always came right up to usand he would give us kisses and let us pet him and love on him. The physical sensation that came over my body when I found out they were sent off made me completely sick!! I get sad enough knowing animals get slaughtered for food, but to have directly known and loved animals that are now just on someone's f'ing plate! My sweet friend is someone's stupid burger! Lulu's cow friend is now food that is just eaten in 5 min...and is not even healthy for you....what a waste of a precious life!! My heart is absolutely broken!! I guess this is your "local, grass fed, free range, happy cows" - is it not twisted that they are raised feeling safe, secure, happy and learn to trust and love humans....and then one day their number is just up and they are swept off and murderer by humans, the very people they've trusted their whole lives??!! What deceit!! It's so f'ed up! I can't understand! Poor Lulu is sad because she misses her animals that she loved to visit everyday! I can't imagine how she would feel if she really knew what happened, but she's too little. I have to protect her heart. I'm so angry, so sad, so disappointed in humanity. This doesn't have to happen. We don't need to eat sweet animals. We don't, we really don't. 💔🙏 #veganforlove #savetheanimals #animalswanttolive #wedontneedmeat #mercyforanimals

The focus in meditation sharpens the mind. The relaxation from meditation expands the mind. The balance between a focused mind and expanded consciousness is perfection. "Expanded consciousness is peace and joy. Focused consciousness is love and creativity. When every atom of the expanded consciousness becomes sharp and focused, divinity awakens." - Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar * * Beginners Meditation Series begins in April...details coming soon! Comment or PM me with any questions! Meditation has been absolutely life changing for me! I am so excited to be able to offer this healing with you SOON!! * * * #meditation #higherconsciousness #focusedmind #expansion #austin #meditationteacher #peaceofmind #joy #loveandlight #behappy #befree #justbreathe

Boom, I am officially a Certified Meditation Teacher of Transformation Meditation! The best part of yoga & meditation studies is that when you finish testing you are all blissed out rather than stressed out! *** What is Transformation Meditation? *** Transformation Meditation is an easily applicable form of meditation that brings about rapid results. It is based on the ancient philosophy and science of meditation derived from The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali and the Bhagavad Gita; includes breathing techniques, mantra, mindfulness and awareness of true self, oneness, love & pure consciousness. *** Who needs meditation? *** EVERYONE NEEDS MEDITATION!! *** I am going to be offering a 5 series beginners class in Austin and this first one will be limited to 5 people & I am offering a deeply discounted rate for this first group of meditators!!! 💗 I am currently working out studio space, dates & time. Comment below or PM me if you are interested and I can send you more details and save your spot! I am so excited to share this meditation practice with everyone!! Your life will be transformed! It is amazing how wonderful you can feel when you have a steady meditation practice, in other words control over your mind, your stress, your health, your happiness, your connection with life! This program makes it easy & will give you all the tools you need to develop a steady practice and it would be my honor to guide you!! #meditationteacher #certified #transformation #meditation #alwayslearning #alwaysgrowing #happiness #justbreathe #befree #unity #weareone #oneness #loveandlight #gratitude

I'm so grateful for this practice and the opportunity to create a life well lived. I wake up everyday and choose to create my life. I choose to do yoga to appreciate my body and my health. I choose to meditate to keep my mind strong, clear & awake - consciously aware. I choose to be conscious of my breath, the very reason we are even alive, therefore I am more connected to life. I choose to eat healthy, be mindful, loving, kind & compassionate to all beings. I choose to read, study & learn how to nourish my spiritual being, to connect with divinity & expand into pure consciousness. This is the daily practice moment by moment that brings joy. Every moment is an opportunity to choose joy thru this very practice. "Life lived by choice is a life of conscious action. A life lived by chance is a life of unconscious reaction. The soul creates, the mind reacts." - Neale Donald Walsch Will you choose the opportunity to live by the will of your soul, to create your life today? Or will you stay in your head and just react to what happens to you and suffer the consequences? Choose wisely, choose from the heart, listen to your soul. * #gratitude #create #loveandlight #higherconsciousness #justbreathe #befree #yogaeveryday #meditate #bodymindspirit #iloveyoga #weareone #unity #alwayslearning #alwaysgrowing #namaste

Take a break from all the #SXSW fun and join me for a Slow Burn Yoga class on Tuesday at 9:15am at @5fitness - the studio will be warm and toasty & an option to blind fold during your practice will provide the perfect opportunity to practice pratyahara, the 5th limb of the 8 limbs of yoga - removal of the senses. Pratyahara is the key to the relationship between the outer and inner aspects of yoga; perhaps the most important limb of all. * #yogawithliv #5fityoga #blindfolded #pratyahara #8limbsofyoga #sxswyoga #sxsw2017 #hotyoga #bodymindspirit #yogaeveryday #iloveyoga #loveandlight #namaste

We got to experience an incredibly relaxing yet invigorating 2 hour Full Moon Kundalini Gong Meditation tonight at @yogayogaaustin - What a journey of the senses! Just like the gravitational pull of the moon affects the tides and water within our bodies, sound frequencies can affect us on a cellular level, even influencing how we feel and function. Sound healing practices like Gong Meditation uses vibrational sound and frequency to help reduce stress, alter consciousness, and create a deep sense of peace and well-being for better health. To greater amplify the healing effectiveness of Gong Meditation, all you need to add is intention and the energy of the full moon and BAM you are high vibin'! Body, mind & spirit are rinsed and ready to begin anew with this new full moon, the compassion moon. The Compassion Moon helps us tap into our sense of interconnection, breaking down psychological walls of separation. We can more easily feel our interconnection with other people, life, the Earth herself, and are more likely to gravitate toward behaviors that foster cooperation, balance, and harmony. * #gongmeditation #fullmoon #kundalini #highvibes #soundhealing #kriya #meditation #bodymindspirit #compassion #loveandlight #satnam

Did you know that black rice is high in nutritional value and is a great source of iron, vitamin E, fiber, plant based protein and antioxidants (more than in blueberries)!! Black rice contains essential amino acids like lysine and tryptophan (reduces anxiety and depression and increases seratonin); vitamins such as thiamine (B1), riboflavin (B2), and folic acid (B9); and dietary minerals including iron, zinc, calcium, manganese, and phosphorus. This organic heirloom black rice, also known as Forbidden Rice because it was once reserved only for Royalty in Asia, is best known to detoxify the body, aid in digestion, reduce inflammation and prevent heart disease and cancer. This is a lot of bang for your buck in this super grain and it makes for a pretty plate! Today I paired black rice in a Buddha Bowl with sautéed spinach, lemon pepper asparagus and white northern beans cooked with cherry tomatoes & hatch green chilis seasoned with cayenne, oregano, basil, salt & pepper. Excellent lunch! I almost feel like an Empress! * #plantpower #plantbasedfoods #foodismedicine #veganforlove #blackrice #royalfood #supergrain #buddhabowl #veganlunchideas #sharingiscaring

Talk about synchronicity!! Just as I finished my last page of Conversations with God - Book 1 and closed the book, my delivery arrived with Book 2! It wasn't supposed to arrive for another 5 days and I had no notification that it was going to arrive early. Book 1 was super interesting and I was ready to immediately dive into Book 2 and had just thought to myself that it was a bummer that my book was finished and I had to wait a week for the next one...then ta-da, Book 2 delivered at that exact moment! Random coincidence or am I just meant to be reading these texts?! After having just read this book, this coincidence almost seems eerily meant to be. These books are fascinating! Whether it is true or not, I'm not sure - the writer claims that everything in these books is a direct translation from God. It's a casual conversation with God, asking all of the questions any human would want to ask if you had a chance to speak directly with God. I am not wasting my energy on deciding whether the writer is telling the truth or not. First because I like to believe in miracles; I like to believe that we all have the ability to directly connect with God if you are open and available to it and the overall message in the books so far are all about love, oneness, self realization and higher consciousness and that resonates with me beautifully, so I'm digging it! I wonder if Book 3 will arrive just in time too - we shall see! * #synchronicity #weareone #godislove #mysteriesoftheuniverse #bookworm #alwaysreading #alwayslearning #alwaysgrowing #spiritualquest #truthseeker #selfrealization #manifesting #creating #conversationswithgod

Nature amazes me! I love seeing a baby cucumber plant sprouting out of the ground, crawling right out of his little seed! In fact all of our little seeds are pushing their way thru the earth! I don't know why this ever seems just "normal," because it really is quite extraordinary! * #plantpower #nature_perfection #garden #earthvibes #lifeisbeautiful #godisgood #plantlife #ilovemygarden #growyourownfood

Super interesting podcast on @ourhenhouse with a scientist from @thegoodfoodinstitute (which is amazing); discussing the scientific progress of plant based and clean meats. I've been following The Good Food Institute and their fascinating journey to create an animal-free burger that satisfies even the biggest meat eater, perhaps even taking the win in a blind taste. The science is truly amazing! * Have you ever tried Beyond Meat or The Impossible Burger? If you could eat a burger that tastes, looks, smells & cooks just like a cow-burger but it was cultured or derived from from plants and completely free of animal cruelty, would you make the switch?! * 93 Billion animals are slaughtered every year in the US alone...which is INSANE...and 30% of that meat goes to waste!!! Factory farming is humanity's biggest crime!! If there are alternatives to the torture & mass killing for food and devastation to our planet, why wouldn't you make the switch?! * Check out this podcast for more science scoop on plant based alternative meats! Here is a video of The Impossible Burger! Looks pretty yummy to me! * #goodfoodinstitute #plantpower #ourhenhouse #plantbasedfoods #cleanmeat #crueltyfree #noanimalsharmed #veganfood #veganforlove

I can't keep my pup out of the garden. It's now his favorite place to chill. He lays right next to the strawberry plants and directly on top of my beet seeds. Rather than crushing my seeds, maybe his good vibes will help my plants grow! He does have the very best vibes after all. #jonsiebean #dogsofinsta #goodvibes #mayyourgardengrow #growyourownfood #happydog #happygarden #plantpower #dogpower

We are spiritual beings having a human experience. What kind of experience do you want to offer your soul? Create and cultivate that soul experience; dive deeper into the knowing of true self and pure love.

Our brand spankin new "big ass garden," as my husband has coined it, was planted with several transplants of spinach, cucumber, Swiss chard, kale, edamame, strawberries, blackberries, squash, a wide variety of herbs and then all of these seeds that the kids picked out!! It was fun to let them pick everything out! Jacob insisted on growing corn!! So, we may have a whole corn field in the back corner, if we can get this stuff to grow - who knows! We are getting light rain today, which is a sweet little start to growing these babes! I know it's supposed to rain for several days now, so I'm really hoping it doesn't rain too much and wash it all away and wipe out our seeds and sensitive transplants! Praying for some sunshine in between the drizzles! Grow baby grow! * #growyourownfood #garden #seeds #lifeisbeautiful #earthvibes #plantpower

Our lil' garden has been planted and was nourished by fresh rain today! Yay! #growyourownfood #goodvibes #earthvibe #gardening

My hard working boy helped shovel, carry & dump load after load of our garden dirt yesterday! He worked tirelessly and never complained...I'm so proud of him, but most of all, he was proud of himself! * #jbear #gardening #goodvibes #growyourownfood #healthyfamily #happykids #proudmamma #plantpower #gardenoflove

I had so much fun playing in the dirt today; building our garden! Did you know that playing in the dirt is actually healthy for you! Not only does it allow you to reconnect with nature but there is a particularly beneficial bacteria, Mycobacterium vaccae (M. vaccae), which is especially abundant in soils rich in moist, organic matter. When we work in the soil, we breath it in. And we ingest it when we eat freshly harvested produce. M. vaccae then does something marvelous. It triggers the release of serotonin in our brains. Our mood improves; depression is allayed. Our immune system is strengthened; learning is boosted. All of these are areas where serotonin plays a role. No wonder we all feel so happy after an entire day playing in this big pile o' earth - the kids, the dogs and the parents all had such a wonderful day! * #playinginthedirt #gardening #plantpower #goodvibes #earthvibe #dirtisgood #sacredspace #loveandlight

Our big pile o' dirt has arrived! We gotta wheelbarrow all of this to the back now - let the labor of love begin! Yesterday, I did my meditation right in the center of our garden plot and blessed this space so that it may fill our hearts with joy and grow in abundance to nourish our family. We are so excited to cultivate this garden! It will be a fun journey for all of us and a beautiful experience for the children! * #gratitude #growyourownfood #garden #sacredspace #foodismedicine #nourish #plantpower #organicgardening #iloveveggies #happyandhealthy #veganforlove #healthyfamily #toepfadventures

Lulu decided to do an impression of me meditating today...she grabbed my tea cup, a blindfold and plopped down and started singing Om!! Then she cracked up laughing and ran off! Very observant child!! I love her to pieces!! * #tinytoepf #meditate #om #toddlermeditation #loveandlight

My husband said, I quote, "there are two kinds of gardens; little bitch gardens and there are big ass gardens that make my wifey happy." And with that, he excavated the backyard around our original "lil' bitch garden" and laid the plot for our new big ass garden!! Bring on the organic soil, let's grow some plants! * #ilovemyhusband #plantpower #growyourownfood #realmendonteatmeat #plantbaseddiet #suburbangarden #veganforlove #savetheplanet #savetheanimals #gardenoflove #healthyfamily #garden

Jacob was in complete shock that I actually allowed them to have cotton candy today! Haha! Gotta live a little, right?! #happykids #sweettooth

This is my special place, where I got to begin my day today before my yoga practice. Sunshine, a breeze, reading by the water, stillness, peace. * I am so very grateful for being given the time and space to fully enjoy motherhood because with that beautiful job of raising two kids that comes with all the constant cooking, cleaning, laundry, packing lunches, reading, teaching, nurturing, healing and taking them to and from school, sports, camps, lessons, play dates etc...there is also a precious 4 hour window of me-time while my youngest is in school...and that me-time could easily get gobbled up with my "real life jobs" or more "mom jobs" but I treat that time as oh-so sacred and I use it fully (at least an hour or two) to embrace life and nourish my mind, body & spirit so that I can be the best version of myself to support my family. I carve out time for yoga, meditation, reading and nature every single day. These 4 things are essential to the well being of my mind, body & spirit. These 4 things really don't even require the full 4 hour window. I still have time to knock out plenty of work/tasks afterwards...and I'm able to do these tasks with more joy and a happy heart and I am prepared to embrace whatever and whomever comes my way with love because I have loved myself first. It's just like the airplane oxygen masks - "mask" yourself first before you can "mask" another. * Whether you are a mom, dad, career person or student, what do you do to nourish yourself? You may or may not have a 4 hour window but a window nonetheless is always available to everyone anytime you make it a priority to take care of yourself. Carve out time to sit in stillness; To be one with nature; To move your body & connect with your breath. Read, learn & grow - develop a spiritual practice. Be present. Feel more connected, more love, more abundance. This is JOY. * #meditation #bodymindsoul #nature #love #yogaeveryday #peace #joy #abundance #gratitude #lovelife #livelife #momlife #happyandhealthy #yourbodyisatemple

After personally witnessing how tremendously beneficial a strong, steady meditation practice has been for the past 18 months; truly transformative for both my husband and myself...and it goes hand in hand with teaching yoga; I have decided to embark on a deeper study of meditation! I am officially getting certified to teach meditation classes! I feel it is my calling to be able to share this healing gift with others & it fills my heart with joy and complete gratitude to be able to dive in to learn how to do so. The ability to find peace, happiness, love, compassion, truth, divinity and pure joy lies within each of's just a matter of learning how to tap in! * #meditation #learntomeditate #teachertraining #aĺwayslearning #alwaysgrowing #sharethelove #transformation #happymind #fullheart #meditateeverydamnday #yogaeveryday #healer
