To be seen...
To be heard...
To be felt... Is such a beautiful experience...
It is a gift in life... Over the weekend I experienced this...
To the depth...
I have never experienced before...
I have never owned so much of myself...
I have never let go of so much of myself...
Let go of who I believe myself to be...
Let go of what I believed the world to be...
Let go of what I believed love to be...
Let go of the need to downplay my gifts...
To please others... My gifts are required in the world...
Just as yours are... Your gifts are your gifts to the world...
These are your gifts from the universe...
That you bring to the world...
The time has come for you to own them...
More than you ever have before... Your pain becomes your power...
Your mess becomes your message...
You become the greatest gift...
You could ever give
I am no Justin Bieber.😳🤣
I'm not an easy everyone flavor kind of palette. And so I don't have the mass appeal of someone who does. I'm no Brene Brown or Tony Robbins.
At least at this point I'm more of the singer songwriter of the spiritual personal development space - maybe someone famous plays my songs sometimes, but I'm not playing any arenas.
And yet I keep comparing myself to the Biebers. Wtf.🤦♀️
This is part of my lesson and super power of this life - I have identity and worthiness issues.🤷♀️
I look around and think... I should
I would like
I could never!
You get the picture.🤦♀️
And I had this moment recently where I was introducing myself and I listened to my accomplishments. .
Shit... that was *me*? Me???!!!
And I got a little impressed with myself.💃🦄🌈
Because I forget. I forget how much I've done and been during the short time I've spent on Earth. .
And honestly, objectively, I'm a badass. 😎🦄💃🦂
But I still don't feel good enough all the time. I still have moments of imposter syndrome. I still feel abandoned by God occassionally. I still cry, and wallow, and kick the dirt.
Because everyone does sometimes. And this is my particular flavor of life lesson.
So ironically, I'm one of the best at showing other people to deal with this kind of bs. Because I've dealt with it 100 different ways.
And no, I'm not Justin Bieber. I never could be. I'm so much more and different. And for the right person, I am a dream.
But sometimes I think I'd like to be that kind of popular success. And that's ok too.
How are you accepting yourself? Or who do you wish you could be like? Lmk below!
Because all it takes is one dream and a Will on fire.
I’ve started an IG profile for my writing @amanda_sibilia I’ll be featuring stuff about my WIPS, Wake World and Star Lore: An astrology adventure with essential oils. If you’re curious about these projects, my new writing process and the books I am obsessing over follow me over there too.
Of course I’ll still keep this one going. My passion for bringing the magick to astrology is still thriving.
If you’ve read this far I want to tell you, I value your support and I haven’t forgotten about the promises I’ve made to you. I’m on crunch time now preparing for my first MAJOR astrology talk I’ll be presenting this Thursday. Add into the mix family life and...well you get it.
Exciting new things are coming your way and I’m super stoked to tell you all about it. If you haven’t signed up for my newsletter you’re gonna wanna be on there. Just saying.
PS: This isn’t my actual book cover. It’s the inspo cover that keeps my fire lit to birth this baby within the next three years.🤞🏻

Dear Black Woman: You’ve come so far, you’ve healed and carried your weight, and also the weight of others on your shoulders. You’ve kept pushing through adversity, and defied the odds of the “mad black woman” stigma. You’ve launched your business, started that project, got that promotion at work, and even increased your water intake. See those are “goals”. Society told you relationship, socioeconomic status, and getting all your children to sleep at the same time meant you were sucessful. Well sis good news! Where you are right now, that job you have, that neighborhood you live in......you made the qualifications for being “more than enough”! Throw your over due for a trim hair in that messy bun, put on that same t shirt from undergraduate, look your self in the mirror, and tell God thank you! You haven’t made it to where you want to be, but you’re definitely on your way! Be thankful and know that you’re MORE THAN ENOUGH!!! It definitely could have went another way!! ✨ #selflove#godlywoman#motivationalquotes#positivity#spiritualaf#positiveaffirmations#affirmations#atlantaplussize#atlhairstylist#arkansasgirls#arkansasplusmodels
I know sometimes I can be kind of a hard ass. I don't have a lot of patience when it comes to arguing for our limitations. If you're married to your victim story and you're not ready to call a divorce lawyer, I really don't have much to add to the conversation. 🌊
It's not because I'm unkind or not caring. It's not because I lack empathy. Its because I know first hand, though my very own lived experience how devastating and destructive living the victim story is. 🌊
I beleive that we all, every last one of us, is pure magic and as powerful as the god force energy which created this universe because WE ARE that energy. 🌊
I make no apologies for not meeting you where you are in your victim story. I'm gonna sit right here and continue to see you as the pure love, powerful creator of your own experience that you are. 🌊
And when you're ready to break up with the vicitm story, I'll sit with you while you call the divorce lawyer. I'll hold the lantern that illuminates the path you walk to self love and empowerment. I'll cheer you on as you course correct a million times a day, if need be. I will be your biggest fan and I will cry tears of joy every time you feel a little more powerful and little more sovereign. 🌊
My belief in you is unwavering. My love for you unconditional. And my desire to see you own your perfectness is infinite.
I will not meet you in your victim story, but if you are ready to own your greatness I will support you tirelessly.
I love you! 🌊💜🔥
For those of you that don't follow my stories, I'm a certified tarot and oracle card reader. I put heart and soul into all of my readings. I make my readings super affordable so that everyone can afford a reading and receive guidance from spirit. I have a business page over at @lunalighttarot if you'd like to come along and join me.
The more the merrier. 💛💛💛
I hope to create my own oracle card deck/s using my artworks in the next couple of years. It's always been a dream of mine to link my two passions and create something truly inspiring. 🦋 #dreambig
I’ve been thinking a lot about how empathy can be bred in a person who undergoes extraordinary pain. I can’t condone untoward behavior in a person who has not and will not take personal responsibility for his or her or their actions. However, I can hold space for those who actively pursue healing as a life goal. It’s not about what one can gain from the fruits of the soul. It’s about accessing and connecting with the soul so the soul can bear fruit. Photo by @timmossholder on @unsplash - @photosplitapp#healing#selflovecoach#soulwork#shadowwork#healer#storyteller
You don't need healing... because there is nothing wrong with you! 💜
You've got your beliefs all twisted up and disheveled and you're allowing your past, which is literally just memories, to drive the tour bus on your journey through life. 💜
Get in the fucking driver's seat. Decide how you want your present to be and be relentless in the pursuit of that. Set the intention and course correct as often as you need to, even if that's 1,000,000 times a day. 💜
Will there be days when it feels ridiculously hard? Yes. Will there be days when you think it's not working? Yes. Will it work if you let it? A million times YES! 💜
It may not always feel easy, but it really is as simple as deciding how you want it to be and course correcting over and over and over again. 💜
I love you! 🌊💜🔥
you love how busy you are.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
it makes you feel important.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
you always say you wish you had more time for⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
you’ve created this environment where you’re a slave to your business.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
and you’re addicted to that feeling.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
you literally CAN’T turn your brain off or stop thinking about all things biz.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
it can feel…⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
once you start to see these patterns,⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
bc you’ve become so addicted to it you don’t know how to stop.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
here’s what I do when I get into that victim/martyr mode:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
go outside and get some nature + sun time in so I can get my energy re-oriented⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
take a HARD look at my to-do list for the week and determine…⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
>> what actually *needs* done⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
>> what can be moved to next week⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
>> what I can delegate to my team⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
>> what can be eliminated entirely⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
take a breath and look at how open my schedule is now after removing all of the busy work⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
depending on the day either take a nap or call a friend to make plans 👯♀️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
(and get some puppy cuddles in)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
from one recovering workaholic to another…⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
it doesn’t have to be this way 😚
Support - it needs to be talked about. I am very blessed when it comes to the people I have in my life, and those that always send positive energy. I have a very supportive group of family & friends, that I would give my last piece of clothing to and know they'd do the same. We've all had different paths, goals or things going on in our lives but are always there to support one another.
But here's the thing, some don't have a support system that will simply cheer you on, push you in a positive way to go ahead and lose that weight, or chase a new opportunity that you so deeply believe in. Some people dont want others to change for the better because its uncomfortable for them, and its just an unfortunate part of life. And it can cause the person trying to do better, to stay held back. Even if someone does have all the support, they may not know where to start, feel overwhelmed or want to seriously simplify things.
We are all different! From all walks of life! So when you see me talk about the amazing tribe of like minded people here to welcome you, I mean it. Private Facebook groups, local meetups or events that will push you in a healthy way. Names and pictures on social media accounts who truly become caring friends. Who inspire you. Answer your questions, provide positivity, guide you - if you are open and receptive to it. Know that if you need options and want to make changes to your health, well-being or financial future, there are others to guide you. So many people in our health & wellness community didnt have the prior support. Because let me tell you, things can be daunting when you dont have support and you just want to grow. I mean you definitely have to have some grit & grace and push on despite the odds, but support is everything!
Again I am very blessed and grateful to have the people in my life always in my corner. I love u and know that your support alone literally means everything to me and helps fuel me. I'm beyond grateful to have my tribes that will push me to always be my best, in times of light and struggle.
Greetings Friends! I’m Amanda, a lover of all things related to reading and writing books. I’ve made this page to express my avid writer side, an open space to freely express things about my WIP Wake World, my writing process and the current books I’m reading.
Right now I’m going to school for my doctorate in Quantum Medicine, homeschooling my 9 year old daughter and 3 year old son, building my holistic health practice, Sol Journey Healing, LLC and managing @sol_rays, where my main focus is on teaching others the magick in astrology.
Since I am what I write, this page is a portal for all current literary and writing obsessions.
One of biggest desires to birth this account , aside from sharing my writing with readers, is because I’m feeling a magnetic pull towards finding my writing community.
Writing can feel so isolating and lonely. It’s enough to make someone doubt everything they are doing because there’s no one to bounce ideas off of or offer new writing insights that our family and friends wouldn’t know of. Simply put, I crave to talk to other writers about the #writinglife.
Check out my next post to get a glimpse of what my current WIP is all about. Wake World is dark, edgy and puts the Happily Ever After ending high at stake.
