Things I’m currently releasing: • 1️⃣The narrative that I’m “busy,” or “busy” as a response to how I’m doing. Everyone is busy and life never “calms down.” I’m ready to flip the script on that nonsense. • 2️⃣The belief that I don’t have time to work on creative projects that stir my soul, because I’m too “busy” working on projects that produce an income. Capitalism is not a system meant to inspire joy and fulfillment, and I’m done playing that game. • 3️⃣My tendency to lack follow through. Historically, I’ve cultivated a myriad ideas and followed through on very few. I intend to be equal parts dreamer and doer, to hit publish rather than perpetually saving drafts. • How about you, bb? What are you working on releasing? The moon is bold and bright as she wanes into her void, reminding us that we can stand in our fullness as we allow parts of us to die. As you journey through your own expansion, there are many things that cannot come with you. What are you leaving behind? 👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽 • • • • • #musclesmagicandmessyconversations #witchesofinstagram #waningmoon #expansion #renewal #rebirth #sheddingskin #shadowwork #theuniverseistrollingyou

I don’t believe that love is all we need. I need honesty. Loyalty. A shared value system. A willingness to talk about the hard things and stick around when things get messy. I need ride or die people in my life, and that’s not just about love. I don’t believe in “love and light” as a solution to anything. Solutions require critical thinking and courageous discourse. Solutions require recognizing intersections and pursuing justice. Justice requires a willingness to dismantle systems of oppression, whatever it takes. I may not believe in these played out platitudes, but I *do* believe in LOVE—in loving myself wholly and without condition, not “when” but NOW. In owning my worth and nurturing, validating, and hyping myself. I believe in extending that love outward towards the people I *choose* and creative expressions that align with my soul. In utilizing compassion and empathy, EVEN as I hold people accountable for their actions. In loving myself enough to cut people out of my life. I believe in love as part of a full spectrum of emotions—in the vulnerability of an open heart, the safety of a guarded heart, and the nuance of everything in between. Love is the answer, sometimes. And other times it’s part of a complex equation that requires a little bit more than what love itself can offer. ROSE QUARTZ: for loving + accepting oneself, reclaiming ones own worthiness, processing emotional upheaval, tapping into the Divine Feminine, embodying sensuality, letting go of self doubt, purifying the heart chakra, and providing space to nurture oneself in every possible way.

I hope that you’re having fun with your body. And if that’s not yet accessible to you, I hope that you’re learning to heal within your own skin—to reclaim that which belongs to you, and only you. And above all, I hope that you feel both supported and autonomously driven in that process. I’ve put myself through rigorous training and restrictive dieting in the past, not as a method of self care, but as a relentless hustle for worthiness and external validation. It took years to heal from that obsession with my body and the wounds from whence it sprang. The cycle of healing is never linear, and as such, I did a lot of back and forth with this body of mine. If you find yourself going back and forth a lot, it’s okay. Everything is ephemeral and the process takes what it takes. My healing required that I get really clear about what I wanted for my own body, independent of external pressures. When I’d inevitably engage in negative self talk or regress into destructive habits, I’d ask, “Who profits from me hating my body? Whose idea is it that I’m supposed to look a certain way?” I found a lot of freedom in that mindset—in remembering that body politics is just another way the patriarchy exercises its power. But most of all, I found freedom in the idea that I could have fun with my body, and that’s all that truly mattered. That if I chose movement and food that made me happy, I would be happy—it sounds simple, but embodying that truth meant dismantling a lot of bullshit. I don’t care about weightlifting vs CrossFit vs powerlifting vs cardio vs low carb vs paleo vs tracking macros. I care about FUN, because fun keeps me consistent and consistency is the goal. My intention is to consistently move my body in ways that make me feel powerful, eat enough good quality food to support that movement, and love myself completely at every juncture. Whatever you choose, boo boo, choose it for yourself. Choose it because it’s fun. Choose it because it feels like coming home, because it’s what feels right within your bones. Fuck anyone else’s ideas of how you should or shouldn’t move/look/eat/feel. Get inside your body and stay there—that’s when you win and the system loses.

Throughout my childhood, I was teased and bullied quite a bit. Being one of only two Persian kids at my elementary school (my sister being the other), my ancestry and name (among other things) were the source of many playground taunts. Growing up in LA in the 90s—during Desert Storm—being from Iran wasn’t the illest thing an American kid could be. I remember kids laughing as they shouted, “I-ran home,” in the not so clever way that kids curate insults towards other kids. But you know what? I did run home. In tears. All the damn time. Today, as a proud child of immigrants who has served in the USAF, a single mom of 12 years, and the creator of my own flourishing business intended to help womxn rise, I still run. I ran when I was preparing for Air Force Basic Training. I ran when I was pregnant with Isaac. I ran with him in his jogging stroller when he was my little boo, almost 13 years ago. And I run because I can. I run to be a better athlete. I run sprints on the local college track. I run on the beach when the tide is out and the sand is packed and the sun sets audaciously over the Pacific. I run in the mountains with Chris, who always beats me—but it’s okay because he’s super fast and extraordinarily good at trail running (and also I really love him). • There have been times when I couldn’t run due to my two herniated discs and the pain they caused, and in those times I felt a distinct loss—something missing in my soul. But now that I’m fully functional, running is something I never take for granted. When I feel fast—when I feel strong—I feel like there’s not a single thing I can’t do. I can build a business from the ground up. I can write a book. I can take care of my baby. I can change the world, simply by showing up as powerfully and unapologetically as I possibly can. Those playground taunts can’t hurt me now. Hell, they played a significant role in making me the bad bitch I am today, and I’m proud of that person. Proud to run. Proud to lift. Proud to be a first generation Iranian American woman, standing in the fullness of her power. @adidasrunning@bustle #ad #ultraboost19 #createdwithadidas #musclesmagicandmessyconversations 📷: @melanie.sylim

Where there are thick shadows and heavy loads, there is also magic. In the salt of your tears, the ache of your bones, the deep sigh of your weary soul—magic can be found, lurking, waiting to be seen and understood, seeking a heart that’s been broken open, a host with the courage to surrender. • • • • • • #shadowwork #witchesofinstagram #musclesmagicandmessyconversations #wordwitch #theuniverseistrollingyou #shadowmagic #salty

negharfonooni's Media: The best part about being an empath is feeling everyone else’s feelings. The worst part is feeling

The best part about being an empath is feeling everyone else’s feelings. The worst part is feeling everyone else’s feelings 😂. • A few things to remember if you’re someone who feels all the things: • 1️⃣ Other people’s emotions don’t belong to you. You can hold space for them and help them process, but you absolutely cannot take ownership of their emotions. BOUNDARIES, okay? • 2️⃣ Energy Vampires will be drawn to you if you’ve got empathic traits—they need some of what you’ve got, and they’ll do anything to get it. These are not people you can usually help, and they will leave you feeling depleted and used. Save your energy for people who are willing to break themselves open, and will actually use your empathic abilities to expand into a higher expression of themselves. • 3️⃣ It’s not a crime to feel deeply. To be sensitive. To be so acutely aware of energetic changes that it sometimes overwhelms you. You’re not too emotional, bb. You’re a child of the fucking stars ✨ 💅🏽🔮⚡️. • • • • 📷: @violetartistry #empath #intuitive #healer #energy #witchesofinstagram #musclesmagicandmessyconversations #theuniverseistrollingyou #sensitive #empathy #piscesseason #boundaries #mercuryretrograde

It took me 30 years to stop destroying my eyebrows—and longer than that to stop bleaching my natural almost-black hair. I had a dysfunctional relationship with my body until a few years ago, and perpetually dated narcissists until I was 35. Each time someone older and wiser would convince me to grow my eyebrows out, I found my way back to a pair of tweezers and fucked it all up again. No matter how many times I failed, I kept frying my hair in pursuit of that perfect shade of blonde. Every toxic relationship that ended leveled up into one more toxic than the last—until now. These are a handful of the very few things I’ve managed to figure out so far. Learning takes time, bb, and time isn’t something we can truly grasp. Healing isn’t linear. The Universe repeats its lessons. *Everyone is in various states of disarray.* Don’t worry—just keep breathing. Keep seeking. Keep growing. And don’t fuck with your eyebrows🖤. • • • What’s a lesson you’ve had to work through multiple times until it finally sunk in? 👇🏽

Have you ever wanted something so badly, while simultaneously believing that you can’t have it? That you’ll never “get there?” That it’s just not possible for you? I got my first muscle up at 35 years old, with absolutely no gymnastics background, and two herniated discs that sometimes inhibit my ability to perform explosive movements. I remember holding myself at the top of the rings, laughing in disbelief—it was a feat I’d long considered impossible. I wanted it, but I didn’t think it was mine for the taking. Once I got up there, it opened up a whole new world for me; when you believe something is possible, everything shifts in response. Fitness, like most pursuits, gives us the opportunity to address self sabotaging narratives about what we can and cannot do. If we wanna do the damn thing—I mean really do it—we simply cannot allow our self limiting beliefs to impede our growth. We have to dismantle our own bullshit. Yes, there are restrictions beyond our control. And yes, limits do exist. Not everything is possible. The very systems that claim to support “the pursuit of happiness” were not created in our favor. Social constructs are tangible barriers. Resources can be scarce. All of this is valid. But what about the times we stand in our own way, perpetuating narratives that steal our worth and dull our magic? We want that dream job, that book deal, that pull-up, that 200 pound squat—and at the same time we think, “that’s not gonna happen for me.” How can we expect to get there if we keep telling ourselves it’s futile? These ideas run counter to one another, and we can’t reconcile that discrepancy without choosing to believe we’re capable, supported, and worthy. You want it? Good. Now get really fuckin clear on why you’re worthy of it, and which actions you’ll take to get it. Be willing to rewrite your narrative. Get out of your own damn way. • • • 📷: @melanie.sylim

That one where she’s like, sooo LA 💅🏽🌴🥑. I was brought into this earthly plane by two Iranian immigrants, at Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in Bellflower, California—a little slice of nothing a few miles southeast of Compton. I’m a Leo sun with a Cancer moon and an Angeleno with every ounce of my soul. While I was born and raised in LA, I’ve lived in Monterey CA, West Texas, Maryland, and NYC—and, if the goddesses see fit to let me live to old age, I’ll probably end up dying in a cabin in the woods, surrounded by ancient trees. No matter where my body travels, this land of the Tongva and the Gabrielino will always have my heart. This city is alive with magic in every graffiti filled artery of its beating heart. From the ocean to the mountains, to the abundance of street art and taco trucks—you could live here a lifetime and only consume a fraction of what the City of Angels has to offer. What city do you rep, bb? What do you love most about the city that has your heart? Let me know in the comments 👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽. • • • 📷: @melanie.sylim

Why are you in such a rush? Where are you going? What do you think will happen once you “get there?” What would happen if you slowed down, instead? How would it feel to let yourself breathe? To stop running someone else’s race? How would it change your human experience? • In a culture that values hustle, productivity, and perfection, choosing to slow down isn’t always the most accessible option. Slow isn’t sexy. Slow is lazy. Slow is boring. But what if you told that narrative to fuck right off, and instead chose to believe that slowing down is a way to produce quality—a way of making sure you’re exactly where you want to be, fully engaged in that process?

PICTURE THIS: You’re hype on your own life. You’re doing work that brings meaning to your life and adds value to others. You go to bed every night believing that you did enough—that you are enough. You’re well rested. Hydrated. Moisturized. Magic lives within your bones. You don’t give much consideration to other folks opinion of you because you know that it’s your job to validate yourself. You take constructive feedback, but you protect your worthiness and refuse to play small. You’re having fun with your body because it’s yours, and you refuse to let anyone else tell you what to do with it. You nurture yourself. You’re calm when you need to be. Salty when you wanna be. Unapologetic about showing up just as you are. You process your emotions at your own pace, and refrain from projecting them onto others. You communicate your needs. You ask for help. You know you don’t have to do it all alone. You’re done spending time and energy on people and things that don’t serve your highest good. Fuckfolks be gone. Fuckshit be banished. You don’t believe the myth that other people have their shit together. Instead, you acknowledge that life is messy, and you’re here for it. You’re a QUEEN, and you know it. +++++ What do you think you need to make some or all of this true for you? If you’re already on this path, what are you doing to keep walking it?

negharfonooni's Media: Sunday morning, 0845, I opened my eyes and drew the curtains to wash the bedroom with late morning

Sunday morning, 0845, I opened my eyes and drew the curtains to wash the bedroom with late morning light. I slept until I felt like waking, made coffee, and then proceeded to lounge around in my robe and do absolutely nothing for the next few hours. • In our perfectionist culture that romanticizes the hustle and lambasts the “lazy,” we’ve lost touch with what it means to rest for the sake of rest. We feel the need to earn our rest, or worse yet—we have our rest forced upon us because we’ve neglected the nourishment of our bodies and souls. Because as many of us know all too well: you can choose to pause on your own terms, or the universe with knock you on your ass, eventually. • To live slow, with no qualifiers or justifications, is not as sexy as the relentless pursuit of “hustle.” Burnout has become a badge and everyone is “busy.” Sleeping in feels shameful. Doing nothing feels unproductive. Choosing ease feels like choosing easy. And as a result, we are more tired—more bereft of magic—than ever. • As for me, I stand in rebellion of hustle culture, and I choose ease instead. I refuse to believe that my worth as a human is somehow contingent on my levels of productivity. I’m done saying I’m busy. I’m done being perpetually exhausted. I’m here to rest as much as I work—maybe even more. To sit down before I’m forced to lay down. To sleep in on Sunday mornings. And if that’s what you need, I hope you are too.

Don’t be afraid to be your own biggest fan. Applaud your own success. Revel in your own magic. Be the hype womxn that each of us needs—for yourself, and by extension, for those around you who will learn to do the same by example. Don’t fall prey to the societal notion that a womxn who stands bravely in her power is conceited or vain. Don’t buy into the idea that self nurturing and self praise are selfish or self important. Don’t let the over culture knock you from your throne under the guise of humility—to possess and protect your own worth isn’t ego or hubris. Love yourself audaciously. Without apology. The world needs womxn who give themselves permission to walk into a room as if they own it.
