Rarely talked about insight into “doing the work”...

When it comes to the process of healing, we often focus on the breakthroughs, the peeling back of the layers, the exposing of limiting beliefs, the acknowledgement of trauma and the deconstruction of unhealthy patterns and systems. And while this work is big, important and necessary for healing, we must also give space for the equally important work of integration after the revelation. 

Integration allows us to take the lessons we learned through the breakthrough and integrate them into our lives. 

This can look like welcoming back the pieces of you that you once pushed away in shame. 

This can look like nurturing a new pattern of behaviour that is grounded in healthy, healed, wholesome perspectives. 

This can look like embodied somatic practices that allow you to bring the lessons you learned down from your head and into your body. 

This can look like hydrating the cells of your body and washing away the old things that no longer serve you. 

This can look like nourishing food as a radical act of self-cafe and embodiment. 

Whatever it is, I tell all my clients to take this time for reintegration. 

Without giving ourselves the space and time to integration each new lesson, we risk falling back into the same old patterns. 

So, practicing what I preach, I am spending some time in bed today, reflecting and reintegrating the wisdom that was revealed to me last night through a plant medicine experience that brought me a breakthrough that I needed. I share so that you know you are not alone; we are all on the journey together. 

What lessons/breakthroughs/revelations are you integrating into YOUR life?

Blood is life 🩸

For so long we’ve been taught to hide our monthly bleeding, to not talk about it, to give it cute names like “Aunt Flow” & “Martha Monthly”. It’s been a Scarlett letter of shame we carry silently; treated as a cultural taboo rather than a blessing. 

But I find power in my blood. 

It is the time of the month when I feel closest to God-source-spirit. 

It is when I am most reflective and open to receiving divine messages. 

It is when I am reminded most intimately of the words, “this is my body - poured out for you” (Jesus). 

Today as my womb opened and I entered into a time of bleeding, I spent some time free bleeding and watching the rich red blood drip out of me. No tampons, no menstrual panties, no cup, no pads - just me and my blood.🩸

It felt raw, wild, ancestral, powerful. 

I realize this is why it has become the cultural expectation to hide our blood - because the wildness is too untamed for a society that has lost its connection to itself. 

And this wildness is the place within me that won’t be tamed by patriarchy, colonization or the ways I was raised to be a “good girl” in polite society. 

That’s why they fear the blood, the pussy, the womb wisdom inside. They call it “TMI” because it’s too much power and it connects us to something higher. 

But all of human life depends on this blood. 

It’s time to give her the respect she deserves.

It’s finally happening! After a year and two months of not being able to be with each other, we are finally starting to return to “normal” with social gatherings and I am so excited! 

Of course, these things are going to happen slowly and there are some things I hope we keep doing (like our focus on racial justice and systemic inequality) but I’m really excited to be with people again! 

This also means we can start hosting community dinners and planning women’s circles and Embodied Movement Meditation classes again!!! 

(I’ll still be offering both Women’s circles and Embodied Movement Meditation for the amazing global online community we have built here ❤️) 

Tell me, what are you excited about doing again and what’s your personal comfort level with the restrictions slowly being lifted and our “return to normal” 4-step plan??

What would you do if fear wasn’t a factor for you? 

What would you do if you didn’t hear the voices of others around you? 

This afternoon I took time to express an embodied celebration of queer joy and the diversity that exists within the body of humanity, even when political and religious forces seek to divide and stop it. 

▶️It makes me think of all the ways we shrink ourselves because we were taught that it was what we needed to do to gain God’s approval. ◀️

“You can’t change who God made me” - an anthem I could sing from the rooftops as I reclaim, reintegrate and celebrate the fullness of my personhood that limiting beliefs once sought to disconnect me from. 

This work of reclaiming our bodies has so many layers to it. 

For me it looks like: 

Reclaiming my sexuality in defiance of purity culture. 

Reclaiming my Asian identity in defiance of white supremacy. 

Reclaiming my queerness in defiance of homophobia. 

Choosing to open up more space for the fullness of the divine in our human experience. 

And while I’m at it, making more space at the table for you to reclaim the fullness of YOUR personhood too. 

What does this work of reclaiming your body and your full personhood look like? 

Because our liberation is intrinsically tied together. Has always been, will always be. 

So what are the things you are seeking to set free within you? Let us release them together. 

🤍

Song is “Conversion” by Courier and makes me think of the current debate going on in the Senate to ban conversion therapy in Canada. Yeah it still happens. I have friends who are survivors and I pray that we will have a future soon where this harmful practice is no longer allowed.

Today is International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia. As a bisexual, Jesus-following woman this day is very important to me. 

Contrary to what some modern churches say, homophobia is not in line with the teachings of Jesus. His radical inclusion for all and his resistance to oppression does not stop at queer people. 

We are not a problem to be solved. We are not a sin to be repented from. 

We are a beautiful display of the expansiveness of God and the imago dei (made in God’s image) that exists in all people.

➡️Right now the Canadian government is seeking to ban “conversion therapy”, something that is often advocated for by churches who view homosexuality a sin and done in the name of Jesus. I am extremely disappointed to know that a local Member of Parliament  in my town is supportive of this unethical and extremely harmful practice that has been condemned by major medical and human rights organizations in Canada, North American & beyond. 

No matter how you define it, conversion therapy is harmful, violent & deadly. 

And it is not in line with scripture. 

The first time the word homosexual shows up in any Bible translation is 1946 through an RSV version translated by a team out of Yale.  It is a mistranslation that was never meant to be in the Bible & as a result has been used as a weapon against LGBTQ2IA+ people. 

I have reached out to @tamarajansenofficial directly as I have a professional relationship with her. She has come to me on numerous occasions to ask for my guidance on various human rights matters. However, on this topic she has refused to engage in conversation with me after I let her know the harm that her words and actions in Parliament have caused to the LGBTQ2+ community. 

So now I come to you all; we cannot allow homophobia and conversion therapy to continue in Canada. Please write to your local politicians and tell them you are IN SUPPORT of banning conversion therapy in Canada, especially if you live in Langley-Cloverdale-Clayton Heights in BC. 

We must all stand up against hatred & harm in all its forms and bring more love & acceptance into our communities

Together ❤️🏳️‍🌈

Actual footage of me being a working, single mom in a pandemic while running two of my own businesses and raising two of my own babies AND writing a book. 

#wegotthis 

There’s a lot I could say about motherhood. It is one of the greatest joys of my life and I am so grateful to be mother to my two sweet babies. 

But it’s also HARD. The hardest thing I’ve ever done, especially when it feels like the odds are stacked against you as you try to be the best mother you can be for your kids while keeping everything else afloat at the same time. (Anyone else or just me? 🙋🏻‍♀️) 

So here’s a reminder for us all as we prepare for the wave of “Mother’s Appreciation Posts” tomorrow: for every corporation, church and politician who tweets/posts/preaches about appreciating Mothers (and those who step into the role of Mother), ASK THEM: 

•how much paid family leave is provided by their company/country for childcare?
•why there isn’t more mental health support during the postpartum year & what they are doing to improve this? 
•if they pay women the equal amount as their male counterparts?
•who does the household and childcare tasks in their home?

Mothers do a LOT every day for all of us and during this last year mothers have picked up extra to keep our homes running in the midst of global shutdown, often teaching kids from home while ALSO working from home and caring for us when we’re sick. 

I often joke with my friends that the experience I have gained as a single mom has qualified me to lead a country one day (Examples: I can balance a budget, manage multiple interests from all sectors, encourage cooperative action across party lines, keep every alive and healthy, oversee education and when necessary, de-escalate civil war and/or negotiate with terrorists. Mothering is a huge gig!) 

Mothers are basically superhero’s and for too long they have been scraping by with bare minimum while juggling everything for everyone. 

So let’s show our appreciation for Mothers where it counts. We can do better for Moms because when we do, we all reap the rewards.

Today is National Masturbation Day! ⁠
⁠
It started on May 7th in 1995 by Good Vibrations  in protest to the firing of Dr. Jocelyn Elders - who was the first African American Woman Surgeon General. ⁠
⁠
She was fired for saying that masturbation should be included in sex education. ⁠
⁠
Duh. ⁠
⁠
But as obvious as this is, it's amazing how many teachings are in opposition to it. ⁠
⁠
Let me know if you've heard this before:⁠
⁠
"If you masturbation you'll go blind."⁠
⁠
"Don't touch yourself, your body is dirty."⁠
⁠
"Every time you masturbation God kills a baby kitten."⁠
⁠
"Your body belongs to your (future) spouse."⁠
⁠
Or the biggest lie of all, "Masturbation is a sin."⁠
⁠
It's not a sin. Masturbation is not something harmful, unhealthy or something to be ashamed of. ⁠
⁠
It's an empowering way to get to know your body, your anatomy's baseline of normal for you and how to know what you like so that you can articulate it to your partner, if you have one or want one.⁠
⁠
Also, as one of my classmate said yesterday, if we can't have the sex we want with others right now (due to public health orders), at least we can be the best sexual partner ever to ourselves! ⁠
⁠
I couldn't have said it better myself. ⁠
⁠
Stay safe and embrace your own self-pleasure without shame! ⁠
⁠
Share this post to help break down the shame-filled taboos and spread sexual liberation for us all! 🥰

If I could go back and tell my younger self anything, it would probably be this: YOUR BODY, YOUR SEXUALITY AND YOUR LIFE IS YOUR OWN. 

No one else gets to make decisions for you or coerce you into something that you don’t believe is right. 

For years I was taught that my body and my sexuality was sinful. I was told masturbation was sinful. Loving someone of my same gender was going to send me to hell. I was given abstinence only sex ed and proper, science based, comprehensive, inclusive, empowering s{x education was kept from me. 

Now I know that knowledge on women’s health and s{xual wellness is power. 

Reclaiming my body from patriarchy is power. 

Knowing what brings me pleasure and how to voice my desires (and also my NO) is power. 

Yet it’s amazing how many of us, as grown women, still don’t know these things!! 

That’s why I will not stop talking about self pleasure! This is a way to empower you to know your body and your pleasure better while also dispelling the myths. 

YES, the G-spot actually exists 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽

And the OhMyG by @ioba.toys_official (*sponsored) is a wonderful way to help you get to know it. 

It has a little pearl at the end of the wand that mimics the stroking motion on your G-spot. 3 speeds and it’s super silent! 

Full disclosure, of all the toys in my collection - this one is in the drawer beside my bed 😏 

It’s great (💦) and I mean that with all sincerity. Not just because it’s my job to review this product. 

If you want to try it yourself, you can use TARATENG for 30% off. 

And today of all days (May 7th!) is National Masturbation Day and all month is Masturbation May soooooo I’d say it’s a good time to get to know yourself better! 🙌🏽

It’s all of us against racism, sexism and other forms of injustice built upon the hierarchies of power that profit off of body-based oppression. 

This is the intersections of Embodiment and Justice. And it impacts us all! 

We must stand in solidarity. 

Today, on May 5th, we recognize Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls and Two-Spirit. 

We recognize the ongoing cultural appropriation and xenophobic violence against Mexicans and other Latinx peoples. 

We recognize the racism, fetishization, emasculation and violence perpetuated upon Asian American and Pacific Islanders. 

We recognize the ongoing violence against BIPOC, LGBTQ2IA+ and people of body disabilities and neuro diversities that struggle to survive in counter-normative defiance of a system that was not made for us. 

All of this done in the name of colonization, patriarchy and white supremacy. 

We stand together against it all and reclaim our humanity. 

Showing up in the fullness of our humanity in defiance against a system that was never built for us to survive in is a powerful resistance. 

Our bodies are a Revolution. 

Comment & share if you agree.

Fetishization is more than having a “type”; it’s a form of objectification that dehumanizes and strips us of our personhood. 

While anything can be fetishized, the harmful stereotypes of Asian women and being “docile”, “submissive” and hypersexualized has a long history of leading to higher rates of sexual violence, assault and exploitation. 

As a biracial Asian woman myself, I have experienced these aggressions on a regular basis. 

It’s time for the violence to stop. 🛑

We are not your fetish. We are not alive for the purpose of fulfilling your fantasy. 

SEE me in the fullness of my humanity. 

Video created in collaboration with @oliviamwong, @glorenguelos and @movementforasianlives.

#stopasianhate #aapi #asianamericanheritagemonth 

Ps- a note of intersectionality: Black men and Trans persons are two other commonly fetishized people groups who experience the connections of racism and sexuality. We stand in solidarity together.
