Top Lessons of the 20s (now that I'm 30)

Well, I just made it to 30 years old yesterday! That's a huge milestone right!~? I am so excited about the 30's, God willing I can be here to enjoy them! The twenties were an amazing time too! If I was to sum it up in the smallest form, my personality shifted like this… 

from starting out an alcoholic, church-going lost girl
 to a stressed out, coca-cola and citibank employee
 to a traveling, free loving hippie chick
 to a rooted, responsible devoted mother. 

Along my travels and experiences I would say my main lessons were listed below.  I am grateful to share. I hope you enjoy and are able to pick up something that you may need to learn.

1. I am already approved. Yes, that’s right. I do not need your approval. I seek my hearts approval.

2. Not taking it personal. Holding space. Being present. Being human. Choosing to breathe and understand that your problems are not going to shape my experience into a negative one. I have free will to walk away or be with you with an open and loving heart through your experience. 

3. Keeping loyalty with relationships that support me and who I am. If you don’t approve of my actions, my deeds, my being in anyway… I am sorry, I love you, thank you for being you, Please forgive me, although I am moving forward on my path with little or no contact with you.

4. I choose  to completely take ownership of my actions, and if I am called out by any of my loyal relations, I want to learn how to be better. I choose not to deny, to run, to be blinded.

5. I choose to see that I am only doing and being the best that I can be. I am choosing not to be hard on myself because that doesn’t serve either. I am gentle and give myself a lot of praise for being here and accomplishing my deeds. I choose to own up to my mistakes and learn how to correct, and teach my lessons if asked for in the future.

6. I stay connected with the moon cycle. I listen and FEEL my emotions in healthy ways and understand the moon has so much relation with the emotions. If I choose unhealthy ways to express my emotions, I seek help from loyal relations. I know that I am not my emotions and they move through me. I learned how to connect with Mother Earth and how to release my emotions to her. I look up at the moon so I can see what phase we are in and understand that each phase supports different actions in my life. When to start new projects, when to complete, when to be more introverted or extroverted, when to take actions, when to discern, and other amazing gifts the connection to the moon phase’s offer.

7. How to trust myself. I guess I didn’t listen to my intuition so many times that I learned it probably is best to just listen the first time!!! My intuition is really good and the moment I doubt it, the toughest lesson comes. The lesson that is like WAM BAM THANK YOU MAM, you should have listened to your intuition……


9. Understand.


11. Just Laugh.......Laughing is my medicine. Truly... I love to laugh. 

12. Enlightenment is a state of being in which I can and do obtain many moments; like this one. 

13. Personal Space. That includes thought space, emotional space, physical space. Boundaries. Set them with those you love dearly and with those not so close. I learned that some people just have no idea unless you say something and its really not so bad telling people what your boundaries are. Not everyone will take offense and those who do probably aren’t supportive people to have around anyways. People who are supportive, will understand and honor you more when you speak up about how you feel about your space.

14. I am the “Mature Adult”, the ”Loving Parent”, and the “Playful Child”. That’s also right, I am all three of these (and more, lol) and if one is out of balance (as in not getting enough time to say what goes,) it will either be immature, hateful, or a suppressed child. Of course these could manifest in other forms but you get the point. I have learned to give each one of these archetypes love, care and opportunity to lead the way. 

15. Last, but certainly not least; I have learned (and still learning) how to hold complete compassion, love and understanding to my relations amongst conflict or disagreement. I do understand that those who want to heal and work through conflict will do their best to show up so we can walk away feeling good and heard in healthy ways.

 Let's face it, it does't matter how old you are, this applies to all! These lessons are here for us to GROW.

Well I hope you enjoyed reading my blog today. Feel free to subscribe and/or share if you haven’t already ! It feels good to connect with the world by writing.

Feeling Good to Be at Home! (Short blog; Super New Moon Cancer)

Hey guys! Here is a little blog I wrote this evening, I hope it helps you navigate a little of this super new moon in cancer energy! 

Finally after 5 years of traveling and living the birth cycle of an angel, I finally feel at home.  As a whole community we may be living out lessons that are wrapped around our home life. Not only outer manifestations of home life but how we feel in our bodies. Most of my early life, I have been uncomfortable to be in my body. Whether it was having eating disorders, attempting suicide, being around unhealthy relationships, drinking myself stupid, running away from what I love to do, not appreciating my body, always wanting to move around, and many other examples I care not to list. These were distractions taking me away from my spirit and not being present in my body. Maybe some of you reading this can relate in some way. I feel now, I am learning the importance of really choosing love for myself, so that I can appreciate being more at home in my body. This time right now is not only about being comfortable in your home space and your sense of security, it is also about being comfortable and at peace with living in your magical body. Listening to your body. Giving it plenty of nourishment by drinking plenty of water and eating mighty whole foods, dedicating plenty of silence, and exercise/movement. Of course it is a daily practice and I encourage everyone to take this journey with me. I am excited to finally feel comfortable in my body and in my home space. I am living my passions and continuing to take baby steps toward more goals and passions yet to discover. I feel open and free to be seen; for I love my spirit to shine through my body. Thank you for reading my blog and my entry today. I am offering free friendly counseling to those that may be struggling with life right now. I am not a professional because I do not receive money to hold space and listen. I am your friend, with an open, compassion heart ready to be present. When advice is asked for; I would love to give with what may relate in your current situation, by listening to my intuition and body. Thank you for taking baby steps toward your own self-inner peace in your body, so that you may finally feel at home to be living in it. –Shawnee Faye Hunter

A great way to live this moment is to take a deep breathe in and out;
Then Affirm with your heart and mind:
I am comfortable to be living in my body. I feel at home and excited for my spirit to shine through my body.
Then release all expectations of outcomes-let go!
Thank you for reading and being!
Happy Super New Moon in Cancer!

Focus and Feel; Inner Self Work How to navigate this new moon in Aries.

Integration with the self-love process is the best way of approaching the change that is and  will be coming. How important is it for the baby to exercise their body and allow their muscles to grow before the take off for their first step.  They are preparing their bodies of that change. We are preparing our minds, our emotions, our soul, and energy allowing the open spaces for change with gentleness. It activates our entire being, especially during this Aries energy. The new moon is coming up on March 28 with a lot of energy happening in the initiation area. Allow yourself quiet time by meditating, counting your breath, living in the present moment and paying it forward to those you love near and dear.  Venus is also in retrograde now and during the new moon. She goes direct on April 15 giving us all the opportunities to re-evaluate our lives around what we love, relationships, and how to feel about our own individual selves. Because we are in Aries and the inner work we are doing is how we show up in the world, we must work deeply on our own self-work. Yes, be selfish but not impulsive. With this energy we may come upon other people projecting their fears, worries, and doubts on us ( or we might be projecting, so pay attention to mirrors and self), we must stand strong in our individual power. Listen to your gut and feelings about situations you may find yourself in. Always know with fiery energy of Aries there is the Mars energy although we are in a good conversation with mars in all of this energy.  Right now is not the best time to go forward with starting new projects or relationships because we are more in energy of finishing out energy that may be still present in current relationships. This does not mean do not start new projects or relationships, it simply means that if it arises to do so with caution and live on the sidelines without committing or “signing the dotted line”.  We are all undergoing a massive change through out the world and it is super important to allow whatever is presenting in your life right now to be here and accept it. Accept whatever it is and whatever perception you have on it. If it does not line up with how you want to feel or how you feel now then simply start making small actions everyday to get you to where you feel  it will benefit you an your path. Be gentle and be accepting of everything right now. Seeing what changes and making them when the time is right is really where we need to be focusing on. We are in for a great new moon coming up and I encourage everyone to truly set clear boundaries with all your relations and most importantly respect your own boundaries and limits, doing your best to listen to how you truly need to show up in the world. Be sure to nurture yourself and help balance out your self care and relationship care appropriately that feel right for you and them :0) Thank you for reading, please subscribe if you would like to receive more blogs. Thank you <3

Definite Idealized Future

               It does not have to be a certain way! This has been a huge lesson of 2016 and now, 2017. The more my mind tries to confine things, definitely plan, build walls/ladders, scope out the avenue of the best fitting, the more I come to this very lesson. Let go, Let God, spiritual bypassing, yes I understand to some degree. Life being a new mother has been teaching me to a HUGE degree the importance of this Let Go, Let God. To me, I have been learning to trust in this and be present. While being absolutely real with myself by looking within, I am utilizing different tools to help me be gentle with myself. Read more if you would like a few tips on how to make actions based on your heart vs. your mind. Of course not pushing your mind aside but seeing the mindless chatter that may be creating the box of it having to be a ‘certain way’. 
                    “Oh yes; I will go to school, meet the man of my dreams far away on an island, get married, have a children, slave my ass off being a mother and employee somewhere, die and enjoy every almost every moment.” Said the past Shawnee at some point. Haha, How does life take turns? If I spoke to my younger self, that my life looks the way it does now, I would not have believed myself. Which is why I am writing this inspirational message today. In hopes, that I may, somehow reach to your ever present heart reading this and cause an explosion of awareness. I hope this causes a sensation that tingles all over your body to feel in this complete present moment. Life does not have to be any one certain way. Setting expectations of yourself and others will at times set yourself up for disappointment, grief, sadness, and any other emotions to work through and feel. Which is completely important and so worth it in every way. By mapping out my future in the past it caused me so many let downs and so much heart ache. I have been practicing remaining in the present by remember to look at my breath. When I say this I mean I pay attention to my breath by counting to 4 each inhale(4sec), hold(4sec), exhale(4sec), hold(4sec), and so on. For me, this has been working miracles on remaining present if I find myself rambling in the mind again. 
                      I honor you and your path where ever you are right now. I pray that 2017 is treating you with gentleness and care. Last year was a bitter-sweet rollercoaster for me. Experiencing birth and death of dear loved ones within 2 months of each other was life changing. To give birth to a beautiful baby girl and two months later loose her father was the most emotional pain I’ve ever felt. Although, I feel right now I am over coming a major illness that has been present in my emotional body for years. Finally breaking free of the burden and weight that I have been carrying around my whole life. It is quite refreshing and to be quite honest a breath of fresh air to feel this right now. To be working on LETTING GO and LETTING GOD completely take the reins and moving forward with life. I am listening to the signs and working hard everyday toward being LOVE and GRATITUDE. I encourage everyone else to do so as well!
                     Life does not have to look any certain way….. What does that mean to you? Do you shape the future around your ideas and pre conceived wonders? Do you feel sad when things do not work out the way you “saw” them. As a visionary, I am learning that seeing and trusting my heart vs. my preconceived ideas from the mind, is one key recipe in accomplishing the relinquished future tripping our mind does. Now saying this is so easier than practical application. This is where practice comes in. Continuously tapping into your entire being by dedicating at least 5 minutes everyday of sitting in silence to meditate. This also does not have to look like anything your mind wants to make it look like. It is simply breathing, sitting still and being at the fundamental core. When I do this I Feel my heart space and breathe into my heart area giving it so much gratitude for keeping me alive.      
               How can we remain completely open to going with the flow of the waters? How can we fully let go of all that no longer serves us? Are we ready to dive deep into our own bodies, minds, and souls to remember our real beauty? Be easy on yourself with this journey of self-progression and sand down the rough edges by taking baby steps everyday. Be open to receiving the signs that are all around us and ask for help to release the need to control everything the mind wants to play out by having to “do it a certain way”. A smooth integration is highly recommended when doing any real self-work. I commend you for doing so and thank you so much for reading my words today. I am an open book and would love to connect with anyone who felt called to reach out. Remember we are never alone and are supported by the COSMOS!!

Mother Theresa was a world known saint and still lives present in our hearts. She carried a force that needs to be recognized. She was a powerful woman of love, who gave so much. I watched a documentary about her and one of her interns told a story about her experience with Mother Theresa. Mother Theresa asked her before leaving her internship if she had any questions. The intern asked her why she didn't say anything to the wealthy men who treated her with disrespect, why she allowed them to be that way to her. These men talked to Mother with power driven anger as if Mother was filth. She asked the intern to love these men, love these men like you love the needy children who are starving on the streets. They need the love just as much, if not more.

I am remembering this part of the documentary and wanted to share why I choose to bring it up now. We are living in a time where so much of our darkness is coming to the surface. Pain, suffering, loss, blame, shame, regret, remorse, fear, sadness, confusion, and brutality etc. I say our darkness because it is not the leaders, it is not the ones in power, it is not just one persons or one group of people. It is ALL of us. We share this great pain and it is a time of great purification.  A time to allow all to come to the surface of whatever form it may take. There is a split happening with humanity and I am writing to remind everyone to WAKE up and choose love. To remember that this is not the fault of anyone but ours. It is humanity that is choosing to continue to blame the other instead of taking ownership. If you are going through a challenging time in your life right now, just know you are not alone. We are in this together.  It is important to show whatever that may be coming up to you in your life, love. Take ownership of whatever it is without playing a victim. Recognize it is happening because of our shared relationship of humanity. Love the pain so much, love the shame so much that you wrap it enfolding it in light and love. This takes practice, steady practice and patience. With yourself and with others. 

Mother Theresa loved us all so deep.... she gave her life to serve, to painstakingly love..... let's start with this remembrance..... here is my prayer. 

Dear heavenly Father and Mother, 
I pray that humanity comes together and remembers the relationship we all share together. I pray there is compassion in every single human filled with so much grace. I pray there is forgiveness in every heart that beats in this world. I pray that the we, the people of this world remember our light and self love. I pray we care for ourselves by being grateful for our bodies, our hearts, our minds and our souls. I pray we remember the worth of receiving love. I pray we give love, compassion, understanding and trust to those who need it the most, including ourself. I pray that the darkness we all share comes to the surface and that we are able to take ownership of our actions. I pray that we allow forgiveness and that we all do the work it requires to move forward into the light. I pray that every man and woman cares for their neighbor, child, self and every being on Earth, no matter what race, religion or political standing. I pray that we lay down the foundation going forward for our future generations to be able to live here in peace. I pray that our future generations will not know what fighting is. I pray that we all remember to be thankful for our waters and for our food that give us life. I pray we all care for, tend to and nurture Mother Earth. I pray we all have a full remembrance of the beauty that is all around us. I pray that our eyes remain open to see the love that we truly are. I pray our ears open up to listen to the sounds of nature and signs it gives us. I pray that we drop our swords and stop fighting each other, and remember we are really fighting inside. I pray for the innocence of our child inside to shine and carry forward with a playfulness. I pray that each one of our inner child is cared for and remembered forever.
This is I ask in the heavenly Fathers son's name, Jesus Christ 

My prayer will continue on with more and more prayer, because I know and have felt the power of prayer..... I am accepted as a child of God and so are you. Ask and you shall receive.... Let's start asking for help. Let's be specific with what we are asking for. Ask your angels for help. Ask your angels and ask your higher self, great spirit (however you want to refer to) to show you clear signs. 

Mother Theresa is a beacon of this light. She knew this light very well. She lived in this light, served this light, loved this light. She was protected, illumined, sustained, and supplied by this light and she blessed this light. So are we.... we all just have to remember. So are you choosing to live in this light as well? With the light comes the darkness yes... although the darkness is not what defines us. It is the light where we can see the definition of our true beauty. It is the the shadow that reminds us there is light. Thank you all for being here and reading this sharing. I encourage you to share so that others may say and feel this prayer and have the opportunity to remember their light as well. 

Whatever may be going on in your life, always remember you are not alone and you have support everywhere, you just have to ask for help. Mother Theresa will listen and she will send her mighty angels in to help! All you have to do is ask, believe and be ready to receive the greatness of your answer. Hope you are ready!!! Now is the time to LOVE LIKE MOTHER THERESA LOVED !

With love and aloha,

Top Lessons of the 20s (now that I'm 30)

Well, I just made it to 30 years old yesterday! That's a huge milestone right!~? I am so excited about the 30's, God willing I can ...
