|| s i m p l e • d a i l y • c l e a n s e || Did you know many of the environmental toxins we take in tend to sit (and get way too comfy) right around our organs? In order to have a high functioning body, we need to be flushing out and ridding our body of threats. An easy way to do this is with plants and all they have to offer. . • l e m o n essential oil is cold-pressed from the rind and the pith of the fruit, so no acidity concerns, plus it’s where all the antioxidants and vitamins and minerals are stored. It is great for cleansing our liver, urinary system and detoxing our lymph nodes as well. • l e m o n g r a s s is a powerful detox of all our systems and assists in cleansing all our eliminatory organs: liver, kidneys, colon, lungs and skin. • z e n d o c r i n e is a lesser-discussed essential oil and is the detoxification blend. I have a roller cap I put on the top of mine and do my best to roll it on the bottoms of my feet at least once/day. I can’t overstate the importance of a daily gentle detox. You can even add this blend to your water to drink throughout the day. It’s potent! But tasty once you get used to it 😉 . ↠ ↠ . Send me a direct message or email inspiredoillife@gmail.com if you’d like help getting started with essential oils. Our bodies are so powerful when we give them the support they need! Be sure to inquire about my current promotions 💛

As I rebuild my strength after that pneumonia/bronchitis I’m eating meals that are heavy in nutrient density. . I’m also eating prebiotic rich sauerkraut with my meals to help my gut absorb probiotics after the antibiotic I took. . This “Ultimate Paleo Chili” by @dasrobbwolf is so incredibly good. The first time I made it I looked over the ingredients and was pretty suspicious about how it would turn out — when you cook this follow the recipe, it’s delish. . #FoodAsMedicine #NutrientDenseFoods #GetBackUpAgain .

home, sweet home. readjusting to life back in LA over the last few days has been nuts. let’s just say — mercury retrograde. none of my devices are working, my jet lag is on a whoooole otha level, and the catch up list is endless! but on the flip side it’s all been perfect, in its own way. my family is here, home feels soooo good, i have been getting to squeeze so many of my favorite humans, and tonight will be a glorious night of celebrations. always the dualities. getting back into the swing of things one day at a time! p.s. eminem’s new album is giving me LIFE!!! anyone else?!?! 🎶💯 happy saturdayyyy!!! video creds to BYRON, of course. ✌🏻 #tbbmademedoit #tbbyoga #soulonfire

T I G E R S E Y E 🐅 is the gem of the Manipura Chakra located in the metaphysical body of the solar plexus. It is responsible for our sense of self, self-esteem, self-worth, confidence, willpower and sense of personal agency. 🧘🏻‍♀️ I got all my classmates at YTT these matching tigers eye necklaces. I wanted us to all have something to bind us together, to commemorate this insightful and beautiful and at times deeply trippy journey into yoga.

one of the biggest takeaways from my trip to Bali has been remembering how at home I feel when I am one with the water. 💦 fluid movement, feeling my body so weightless in the pool, and breathing along with the ripples of the water all make it so easy to drop into a mind-altering state of meditation. it’s actually nuts how deep into my third eye i have been able to get since being there. my @speedoUSA swimsuits are my favorite because they allow me to dip and whirl and dive so that I can feel like a true mermaid and drop into that deep, fluid, watery meditation. 🙏🏻 #tbbmademedoit #tbbtravels #tbbinbali #getspeedofit #ad

What does being FEARless mean to you? 💕Last week I shared a quote on a "Fearless Thursday" by Taylor Swift, “Being fearless is about having a lot of fears, but you jump anyway.” Being fearless means a lot of things. It's about having fears, but moving forward anyway. ✨It's about taking risks, having faith, being brave, and more than not - uncomfortable. . We all have fears. For example, I fear spiders 🕷 (ewww), crowded places, and heights. ⛰I fear rejection, loss, stepping on the scale when I'm not feeling so hot, and not being a good mom (when the time comes). I have fears, but I choose to live without fear and push forward anyway. In 2018 I choose to be FEARless, and surround myself with kickass people who support my goals and make me a better ME! 🙌🏼❤️ . This week #ontheblog I challenge you to do the same (link in bio 👆🏻). How will you be FEARless in the year ahead? . 📸 @nickisabella.photography . . . . . . . #san#sandiegofit #sdfitness #sandiegofit #sandiego_fitness #sdyoga #livelifewell #mindfulliving #wellnessjunkie #fitnessgirl #lov#lovemyshape #sweatitout #womenshealth #myfitlife #befearless #lovemyshape #liveyourbestlife #fitgirlfam #iamempowered

Some things never change, like washing the dishes. A forever task, unless you are somehow eating on air or paying someone else to clean your mess, everyone knows what this cleaning is like. * * One of my favorite books of all time was actually pre-requisite reading for my YTT, The Miracle of Mindfulness by Thich Naht Hanh. In it he says, "wash the dishes to wash the dishes." * * It sounds simple enough but it is tricky. Mundanity is unappealing but cleaning is a part of rituals that can create more connection to your environment. * * This was full of composting food. Smelled awful. Looked disgusting. It was really satisfying to scrub it clean. The process felt a little bit like cleaning myself up, knowing I/it will only get all dirty again. * * We gotta love the process. #ahimsa #yoga #boldyogini #practiceandalliscoming #int#interstitialcystitiswarrior #interstitialcystitis #mindfulness #meditation #washthedishes #thichnahthahn #mundane #wellnessjunkie #grateful #healing #knowthyself #selfcare

It's the time of year that many of us start setting intentions for what we will or won't do in the new year, but what about making the most of the rest of 2017? ⠀ ⠀ I'm setting intentions for these last couple weeks of the year so they don't disappear into the holiday blur and I'm ready to ring in 2018 with joy, presence, and self-reflection (get it 😂):⠀ ⠀ ✨ Make time every day to reflect on and review this year (making the most of #mercurymetrograde!). It's been a big year of transition, I've lived in three cities, moved @meowheadthecat and I from coast to coast, and have learned and grown in the process.⠀ ✨ Meditate. Every. Day.⠀ ✨As @ladygaga said this week, find the reflection of myself in every person I encounter (and see the world as one giant disco ball 💎💎💎). Treat everyone with love and compassion.⠀ ✨Set time aside to set intentions for 2018 ⠀ ⠀ Thanks to @soretrograde and @ambikavanagh for the inspo ❤️⠀ ⠀ 📷: @ksquaredm

Used to experiencing those high high’s and low hormonal low’s? This blend levels those fluctuations out - plus eases the intense pain from monthly cramping. • d e e p b l u e blend is soothing just like we need it. Wintergreen, a natural pain reliever, is included in the blend and helps to much with so many types of physical discomfort! • a r o m a t o u c h blend is technically the massage blend, but it also helps to get things moving. Cypress is fantastic for circulation, Peppermint is a driver oil, marjoram is for pain relief, and I could go on! Basically, perfection in a bottle. .

|| s t r e s s + a n x i o u s f e e l i n g s || I’ve been asked a lot about oils for stress and anxiety recently, ‘tis the season for emotions to be running particularly high unfortunately. The powerful thing about pure essential oil’s is that they not only impact our body, and the way it feels physically, but our emotions and our limbic system as well. Here are some of my top picks and how to use them: . • b a l a n c e & s e r e n i t y in your diffuser or applied topically. You can add them to a roller bottle and top it off with fractionated coconut oil, they work beautifully together or apart. Apply to pulse points on neck, wrists and elbow creases. • Some people find they love the calming effects of m e l i s s a when they take a drop internally. Be sure you’re only using doTERRA Melissa. This essential oil is among the most adulterated oils on the market as it is so easily - and so often - substituted with lemongrass. • My dear friend @herbs_oils is among the most talented and creative aromatherapists I know. This idea came from her: take a spoonful of raw honey and add 1-2 drops c l a r y s a g e. Take by mouth. This works as a tonic and feels like you had a glass of wine (or two!). . Be kind to yourself the season! Give yourself some time for extra care and love and grace. Manage your emotions safely and naturally, you deserve it ✨

I want to use this picture of this heavenly ✨ happiness inducing piece of rye toast w/ 🥑+salmon to talk about something I think is very important - sadness. ..... Yesterday I was working with a group of people to package treats for a bake sale I was organizing 🍪🍩🍫 I could not find my pretty red/white twine. And it ruined my day. I wish I was exaggerating. I put on a smiley face but on the inside I was nervous, upset, beginning to panic. I told myself over and over that it didn’t matter. It literally didn’t. But I had been ignoring my stress and expending so much mental energy that this little roll of twine sent me over the edge. 😰 ..... At home, I tried to meditate, but nearly fell asleep. That didn’t help. I took my scheduled hour of Wednesday self care. I read a magazine, watched YouTube videos, did a bit of yoga and cried. It helped a tiny bit. My heart was racing, my motivation was 0, my usual happiness was nowhere to be found. I forced myself to do the absolutely necessary HW and cried myself to sleep. ..... My morning continued similarly - acting happy but on the inside feeling so so heavy. And then it passed. Very suddenly, actually. I was sitting in my 3rd hour class and suddenly felt a hint of courage that told me - you can be happy. And I just resolved to be happy. Literally. It perplexes me, I don’t understand it. ..... I stayed completely off of blog/social media yesterday even though I kinda wanted to document the sadness. But I think I did the right thing. For me, I need to climb out of my own personal hole before I can share with other people. I just needed some time. ..... So what I want to say is - be gentle with yourself. Give yourself space, time, and permission to BREATHE. Positive affirmations and very slow breaths have helped me immensely. If you made it this far, 👏🏻 and THANK YOU. You are amazing. Remember - this too shall pass, and you are never alone.

Feeling like a wild thing today. My yoga practice has been more about meditation and less about movement lately but today I decided to explore and play. * * It's been over 3 months since I went to a regular yoga class as a student. I have trouble trusting myself to make it through an hour or more of movement without body interruptions. * * I'm grateful for what I am learning. I am recognizing my own strength lies in my resilience. We stop growing when we give up. I never want to give up but sometimes the work feels so overwhelming and unending. * * The word chronic is heavy. I am learning to dance when I can and stand in the rain when it pours. * * Healing isn't linear. Maybe the reality is that life is trauma and we all get fucked up, the more important fact is we have to know how to get ourselves right again. And health isn't some one-time goal, it is an ever changing thing like this moment now. * * Resources like a supportive community I am grateful for (😘 you guyzz) among the many books I have read and continue to consume lead me to believe half the battle is in fortifying oneself against the daily grind of living in pain. * * There are so many ways to live. Being well adjusted is potentially the lie. This culture is screwed and we have to live in it and we have to examine our role in our own beliefs. Spending time with yourself and your conscious quilt of beliefs, tics, habits and patterns show us where we come from and where we may be heading. * * My advice to myself everyday is tune in. Listen again, and again. Start the process of investing in yourself more and more. * This is building self-love. #ahimsa #boldyogini #yoga #practiceandalliscoming #interstitialcystitis #interstitialcystitiswarrior #health #wellnessjunkie #yogaeverydamnday #lovethyself #knowthyself #bepresent #wearethemacrocosm #justbreathe #grateful #gratitude

I can remember this moment like it was yesterday. I woke up that morning in October 2016, looked in the mirror and thought - holy crap I look awesome. 💃🏻💋My second bodybuilding show. 👠Tan, makeup, hair...bombshell. 🔥Up until that point there was only one other moment in my life I've said that - my wedding day. 👰🏼That day I truly felt like a princess. . I decided to post this throwback today not as a "oh man I wish I looked like that again," but rather to pose a question. When was the last time you looked in the mirror 🔍and said, "damn...I look awesome!"? Honestly, we should be saying this everyday. . I know how hard it is to look like the women in this picture! I know because it's me. It's sacrifice, hard work, and putting my body through a TON. It's an impeccable and carefully planned diet 🥦🍳🍌🍚🍗Truthfully, my diet was so clean I never felt better. But, I was a hangry monster ☠️most of the time (ask my husband - ah!) . The other day I shared a few fun facts about myself. And a lot of people don't know that I’ve competed. 🏋🏼‍♀️ It was the scariest and craziest thing I've ever done. Will I compete again? Probably not, but I am forever grateful for the experience. 🙏🏻I've learned a lot about self-esteem, body image, and training. 💪 . Today I encourage you to look in the mirror and say "heck yes! I look gooood." You don't need a six pack, a tan, or even makeup to say that. You look #BEYOUtiful all the time. . xoxo, Erica ❤️ . . . . . #wellnesswarrior #womenempoweringwomen #sdblogger #livelifewell #iamempowered #lovemyshape #sdf#sdfit #sandiegofitness #sdfit #sandiego_fitness #sdyoga #sweatitout #fitnessgirl #wellnessjunkie #bettereveryday #npcbikini

SO content. Waiting 3 years to come home was hard but so worth the wait✌ . Family time, besties ( and their babies ), amazing New Zealand food and produce, epic scenery, and the little things you take for granted when you live here, like how ridiculously good customer service is and how nice and friendly everyone is ( random, but after living in Spain it's noticeable and very refreshing 😂 ). My heart is so full🙏 . There really is no place like home💛

V I J N A N A M A Y A K O S H A 🧘🏻‍♀️ In yogic philosophy, the metaphysical body is composed of several layers called koshas (sheaths). Vijnanamaya kosha is the wisdom and awareness body. When we meditate, we access this body. Insight comes from here, from a deep objective awareness that we are all capable of. It is the intellect plus an awareness that goes beyond simply the intellectual mind (which is the manomaya kosha). Here vijnanamaya is considered to be a form higher thought, higher than intellect because it also encompasses creativity and intuition. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #mindfulliving #mindfullife #namaste #bohemian #yoga #yogagirl #yog#yogateacherning #yogalife #yogalove #yogalicous #selfcare #selflove #selfcarematters #lif#lifestyleblogger #lifestyle #jetsetter #wellnessjourney #wellnesswarrior #wellnessjunkie #law#lawofattraction #yogi #healthy #fitfoodie #fitgirl #fitness #nomad #wanderlust #yogateacher #meditation #spirituality #lawofattraction

If you know me you know I am obsessed with avocado and toast. I could definitely have this for breakfast everyday, anyone else? 🙋🏼‍♀️ I used to cut the avocado perfectly and place in on my toast as pretty as could be but most recently I’ve been smashing my avocado with lemon, salt and pepper and a pinch of cayenne on top. // What’s your favourite avocado combo? 🥑👇🏼

“The whole spiritual process is just this: that you are willing to take the next step not knowing where it will lead you. If you are not ready for that, that means you are not ready for any new possibility.” ~ Sadghuru ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #mindfulliving #mindfullife #namaste #bohemian #yoga #yogagirl #yog#yogateachertraining #yogalife #yogalove #yogalicous #selfcare #selflove #selfcarematters #lif#lifestyleger #lifestyle #jetsetter #wellnessjourney #wellnesswarrior #wellnessjunkie #law#lawofattraction #yogi #healthy #fitfoodie #fitgirl #fitness #nomad #wanderlust #yogateacher #meditation #spirituality #lawofattraction

Currently OOO to help cover the grand opening of our final 2017 club tonight. It’s been, by far, the most hectic one yet there are still reminders all around to slow down and take one moment at a time. ✌🏼
