These are the dark days. The days I don’t feel at home in my own body. I feel like my machine is malfunctioning. I spent the last 24 hours in bed sleeping so I could turn my brain off. All I can think about is darkness and violence and death. I’ve isolated myself into my own little cave because that’s where I go when it gets to be too much. I’ve missed so much work, yet I can’t seem to care. I just can’t imagine that this life is all about working away my debt until I die. If that were the case, I’d rather die and just get it over with. But there has to be more than this, more than this prison of flesh and brain and heart. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My heart tells me baby steps. So I got out of bed and drank some water. I picked up the stuffing strewn about my room from dog toys (thank goodness for dogs, I’d be dead without them) and lit some sage to clear it out. I made an appointment with my doctor and signed up for therapy. Baby steps. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I don’t always know how to keep going when I feel this low. I don’t always want to. But I know that I have to. I don’t know how and I don’t know why, I just know that I do. There is something deeper within that pushes me to the light. Wherever you are, whatever your experience, I hope you know that you are not alone. ❤️✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #depression #majordepressivedisorder #notalone #mentalhealthwarrior #warrior #spirit #lightworker #lightanddark #balance #spiritualgrowth #yoga #meditation #suicideprevention #soul #darknightofthesoul #peace #selflove #selfcare #health #wellness #therapy #journey #recovery #anxiety #ptsd #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalwellness #masterpeace

Merge. Polarities. Duality. Oneness✨ When I look at our internal world and compare that to our external world, my observations turn into reflections. We see that just as there are polarities in nature such as night and day & dark and light; we are also made up of polarities, such as our right brain and left brain tendencies. These polarities represent our dualistic nature, as they cannot exist without the other. This example is beautifully orchestrated by God with the sky. When it becomes night, the daylight slowly transitions from light to dark. As this occurs, you still see specks of light until it is fully night. In the early morning hours, you still see specks of darkness until the daybreaks with the sunrise. They are merging into each other as One. They represent the same phenomenon, but expressed as two different elements. I believe that as a collective conscious, we are moving toward Oneness, as this is our ultimate reality. I already see these shifts, as more people are ascending. When we awaken to our true nature, we dissolve the illusion of separateness and become One. In order to come into union with our divine counterpart, we must merge our own polarities of duality into Oneness within ourselves. When you function from your highest level of consciousness, you invite this conscious Love into your life. Just as the waves innately flow as tides in the ocean, Love is also a representation of Oneness. Each wave makes up the ocean, as they also cannot exist independently. And so it is. ♥️🌌🌊🙏🏽✨💜 * * * * #approachingthelight #preetijapte #soulfulwords #poetry #poems #poetess #poetsofinstagram #poetsofig #writer #writersofinstagram #spokenword #dmvpoets #dmvpoetry #balance #alignment #polarities #duality #oneness #signsofGod #nature #reflections #sky #waves #ocean #lightanddark #divinefeminine #divinemasculine #union #awaken #loveisacalling

Elcompleto So nice to decide something is finished! A struggle of mine and a pattern to unlearn. Something that seems never be ‘done’, like most of my works I am yet to ‘complete’ and could always be better or improved. A practice of knowing I’m good enough in ‘imperfection’ to my often ridiculous standards I put upon myself and being able letting go. #finit #watercolour #ink #finetip #ink #thing #something #nothing #onedown #moretocome #lettinggo #learning #lightanddark #embrace at East Brisbane, Queensland, Australia

Tak! To właśnie my, dzielne laski, które wdarły się na szczyt 💪🏻😂 a tak właśnie wygląda duma ze zwycięstwa, bo zaliczyłyśmy dzień na maxa 😀 Jak widać 13 km wpadło (nawet nie mam pojęcia kiedy 😱), a Kick Fit został zaliczony z radością 😁 zdecydowanie potwierdzam, że ćwiczenia z bliskimi to większa motywacja, a co najpiękniejsze - jest ona wzajemna, szczera i mega pozytywna 🤗 Osobiście uwielbiam ćwiczyć z kimś, a Wy? Lubicie ćwiczyć w towarzystwie? 💪🏻😇 #missionbeachbodyzchodakowska #chodakowskaewa #bediet #beactivetv #chodagang #fajterki #siostry #sisters #family #wandering #travel #polishgirls #brunetteandblonde #lightanddark #forrest #JeleniaGóra #dolnyslask #spring

Everybody has a dark side, a shadow, a side we dont want to see. Light and dark only exsist with each other. Embracing your dark side paradoxically supports you to be a more authentic you. Using this tool to evolve can help your life improve, but stay mindful not to jump into the abyss of darkness, as you may bring others down with you. Allow this dark deep dubstep track from @guttapdx help you release your demons and navigate your murky inner terrains in search of a more authentic you. #wgtcomp5 . . #shadows #darkness #pain #shame #sticky #wounds #enlightenment #murky #grime #dubstep #paradox #authentic #light #happiness #awaken #balance #uplift #embrace #positivity #fullfill #lightanddark #love #blessed at Portland, Oregon

The Approach of the Storm. Aside from warmer temperatures, I’m looking forward to summer because of the summer storms. I can’t wait to see what a massive thousand foot long storm cloud looks like out in Colorado’s prairies.

THE DUALITY OF FEELINGS: Sometimes I feel a deep wave of something I don’t like- sadness, anxiety, depression . I usually try to distract myself from it by my phone, eating, music, or reading. Today was different though, today I just let it be there. 💙 . I didn’t run to find a quick fix today- which has reminded me that quick fixes only lead to a need for more quick fixes down the line . So instead of expecting to find instant solutions, expecting immediate peace, and expecting 24/7 happiness.... I allowed the experience to be what it was in the moment . 💙 . I had to let go of trying to escape or fix or improve or evaluate the situation. I had to let the uncomfortable feeling go on forever (it never actually last forever). I had to surrender the stories and the labels and the meanings and not expect a single thing . 💙 . As someone who has a passion and career in helping others, it’s easy to feel guilty and unqualified when these waves come over me. I know it’s not true because it’s so intertwined with WHY I have a passion for helping others. It allows me to coach others even better because I have to actually fill my own tank with the gas I give ⛽️ and that’s sincerity . 💙 . If you’re feeling overwhelmed, anxious, or sadness, today I encourage you to let it be there today. Accept that your soul tank is low & realize that it means there is space. There is space to explore, to create, to admire your surroundings, or to just simply exist and that’s okay . at Winter Park, Florida

Here’s a still life I worked on in class a few weeks ago. In this piece I was exploring the idea of ambiguity and how we create stories in our heads. Can you find a story in this painting? 🤔 Oil on canvas. . . . . . #oilpaintings #oilpainting #paintingwithatwist #paintings #oilpaints #oilpaint #paintingart #painter #painters #painterly #fineartist #dramatic #chiaroscuro #lightanddark #storytime #mysterious #meaning #Art #painting🎨 #paintingart #paintingoftheday #paintingoncanvas #originalpainting #contemporarypainting #stilllife #stilllifepainting #perspectives #gamblin at Wilshire, Los Angeles
