This is what it’s all about. Without fail, when I am feeling overwhelmed by life. Anxious. Stressed. Depressed. Any of those “bad” emotions (which are all just loving messages from my soul …) CONNECTION is what pulls me back. Reflects back to me that whatever I am feeling is OKAY. Reminds me we are all in this together. That we’ve got each other’s backs. Yesterday’s Club SÖDA NYC event was billed as “A Day of Deep Connection and Conscious Un-cocktailing.” CONSCIOUS being the other key c-word. Because in the world we live in—where this thing you’re using right now creates the ILLUSION of connection—we must consciously seek out and create ways to connect. Or it’s too easy to just live on here and pretend. For me, this also means connecting SOBER. Meaning being fully present. Choosing to truly see each other and be seen. Alcohol creates another connection mirage. When we drink, we dull our ability to create new memories. We can wake up the next day wondering: did that really happen?! When so much of modern life is a “virtual reality” what we need to balance this is more REALITY reality!! I made so many amazing new memories yesterday. Check out my stories for some scenes from the day! Thanks to @kinsocialtonic for making it possible. To our incredible presenters @sirirish @sahdsimone @christopheglass @lovejmw @themichaelventura @thewishcraft @courtney_deri of @theclassbytt and @_kyma_. To our keynote speakers @jonnypodell and @hawk.newsome. To @our_habitas for hosting. To my SÖDA sista @guidedbybiet. And most of all to those who came and got f*cking real with us. Best birthday party ever!! ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨ #Numinous #Numiverse #peace #love #connection #clubsodanyc #sobercurious #soberlife #selflove #selfcare #healing #feelings #sundayfunday #realityhigh #magicmonday #hangoverfree #highvibelife #materialgirlmysticalworld

What are your thoughts on alcohol? I know it is super personal and different for everyone. I’ve believed for a long time that alcohol in social settings, in moderation, is totally fine (I still feel this way!) but lately I’ve been feeling very sober curious. Alcohol has been an integral part of my social life for 10+ years and I’m reaching a point where I crave more. I crave more real conversations, and more real, genuine relationships that are rooted in common interests rather than alcohol-induced interaction. My journey with alcohol has definitely not always been a happy or positive one and I’m starting to realize that it has definitely brought my life more harm and negativity than good. I’d love to hear your thoughts, successes or personal journey!

Mock Gin O’Clock 🍸🍸 I’m going to a gin party this weekend. Each guest has been asked to concoct a gin cocktail to serve to everyone else. Rather than simply turn up with some tonic & lemons I thought I’d have a go at brewing a juniper syrup. Before I post the recipe several points to note: 🍋It was mega easy to make & no specialist equipment was required. 🍋The ingredients were easy to track down & inexpensive. I got juniper berries from Tiger Tiger. 🍋The husband was v impressed & said whilst didn’t taste like a full on g&t it didn’t taste like a simple glass of tonic with a slice. I have got to say I was super impressed - it tasted complex & felt sophisticated and it’s totally alcohol free so seriously what’s not to like?? Feel like I’ll be flying the flag for sobriety on Saturday night! In a pan put 120ml water, 110grams white caster sugar, 1 bay leaf, some orange peel & bash up 2 x tbsp juniper berries & a couple of cardamom pods. Let it simmer for 15 mins. Cover & then let steep. The batch that I made today I left to infuse for 2 hrs (due to time constraints) I’m making another batch & leaving it to infuse over night... will report back if it makes any difference / improvement. Let the syrup cool down & then strain & refrigerate. Serve with ice, lime juice, tonic, spring of rosemary, rosemary flowers & lemon garnish. Et voila! I suppose it would last for 2 weeks in air tight container in fridge. We drank all ours this afternoon - so please let me know 😂😂🤣🤣 #sobercurious #soberlifestyle #soberlife #soberliving #gin #botanicals #mocktails #juniper #juniperberry #rosemary #homebrew #homemade #soberandproud

I'm not a drinker. Never have been even in college. Sometimes it can be tricky to navigate the social scene but I've learned to be comfortable being the only sober person at a party. Bonus: I never wake up the next morning with regrets. . . . With that said, I'm super excited to see a growing trend where restaurants are now offering non-alcoholic cocktails. I'm a sucker for anything with kombucha or CBD spiked. . . . What's your favorite mocktail? Sound off in the comments below.

Feeling my Leo roots today with this one 🦁 ➕ In all seriousness though, I’ve had a lot of DM’s and texts lately about a huge shift in my energy, how I show up in the world, and what I’m sharing here about my health, body & business. And this right here just about sums up that shift. ➕ When I started my first business almost 10 years ago, I didn’t care what anyone thought. And then the internet grew, and I began to care a lot.... for WAY too long. It was my trip to Bali last summer and embarking on the book writing process about Worthiness that finally led me to... well.... frankly- no longer give a shit. ➕ Not just about what other people thought of me; more importantly, I stopped worrying about all of the popular trends, marketing messages, beauty & body opinions that I disagreed with secretly but was using as excuses to not get off my own ass, and all the other views that were blocking me from my own Truth. ➕ And in that, I began to see just how awesome I am. And you are. And we all are. If only we could have the courage to not only see it, but Claim It and Embody It. ➕ And that is what they say, made all the difference in the world 🤩🤩🤩 ➕ So I’ll be over here hanging out with my awesome heart, and you are free to join me, or not. And I {finally} know, I will be ok either way ❤️ . From: @theawkwardyeti

To be free of deceit & untruthfulness. ✨ If we want to change anything in our lives, especially habits that are no longer serving us, we must have the Courage to be completely honest with ourselves. ✨ We must become still, lean in & create space for our shadow self to be heard, to be experienced. It is Crucial to Embrace our Whole self. We must become so transparent with ourselves if we truly wish to Expand, Grow & Flourish. ✨ Accepting & Loving yourself through this Wild journey is key! This is where Magic happens.❤️ ✨ Moment of truth-what is keeping you from being the best version of You? What is no longer serving You? ✨ Are You Willing to Release what is no longer serving You?? . . . . . . . . . . #nourishedsoul #soberyogi #honesty #authentic #alcoholfree #sobercurious #mindbodysoul #spiritual #mindfulness #cleanliving #yogajourney #yoga #yogi #meditation #courage #riseup #instadaily #love #women #womenempowerment #wednesday #change #innerpeace #loveyourself #healthychoices #healthylifestyle #personalgrowth #leadership #tribe #acceptance

➕OLD STORY: It’s been a crazy busy few weeks, I’m going to lay around and do absolutely nothing for a few days to recover. ➕NEW STORY: It’s been a crazy busy few weeks, so I’m giving myself ✨PERMISSION ✨ to do whatever I want for 2 days starting with total rest, with no judgement or preconceived notions of what those things may be. ➕ Funny thing happens when we give ourselves that permission: the old guard of extremes (go hard, crash hard) disappear, and instead balance begins to rule the land. ➕ ⚔️ Because at times we need to go hard in our careers or business, and your body should not have to suffer for it ⚔️ ➕ Yesterday I really saw how much has changed in the past two years in how my body processes big expansive phases in my life & business. She used to contract- HARD- after every event, retreat, travel, etc I went to, regardless if I lead the event or not. But now that I’ve found my ideal rhythm with cardio & strength training {late in the day, always} and a meal plan that works well for me {Paleo with a side of pizza 🍕} that contraction? Almost non-existent. ➕ But damn did I try to live in the old story yesterday {we often do}. While mentally tired & a bit headachy, my body was super restless and just wanted to MOVE. So after an internal battle, getting up every 10 minutes from reading & turning the bike on/ off 4 times throughout the late afternoon, I made a deal with myself- do 5 minutes & evaluate from there. ➕ So I did. And know what happened? 5 minutes turned into 60, my headache disappeared, I was able to sweat out some weird energetic pulls, and I set myself up for 10 hours of blissful sleep. Then woke up this morning ready to go 👊🏻 ➕ We go through different phases of our life, and right now I’m in a super active, needing to sweat phase. Will it last forever? I have no idea. But honoring the new story instead of the old has literally changed EVERYTHING. It’s not about what my body looks like right now- though I do love it!- but more about how I FEEL. ➕ Which is fantastic. On fire. And more alive than ever. ➕ What is your body begging for that your mind keeps over-riding? What permission do you need to give yourself to do things a new way? 🔥🔥🔥

You can’t get to the top of a mountain without tripping over a few times. Same goes for changing your relationship with alcohol, if you drink more than you intend to on occasion it’s normal, you’re not a failure and you don’t have to start again from the beginning. Get up where you are and as long as you keep going in the same direction you’ll get there, trips & falls included ✌️ #alcohol #sober #sobriety #mindfuldrinking #controlleddrinking #sobercurious #wellness #mentalhealth #emotionalhealth #healthyliving #personaldevelopment #change #habits #keepgoing #soberlife #mindfulness #anxiety #fitness

And then, we rest for a few days 😴 Holding weekend events for my clients is one of my all-time FAVORITE things about what I do- and I show up fiercely bright when I hold them- but as an introvert I then need massive amounts of QUIET directly after. ➕ It used to be I needed at least a week to recover, but now that I feel stronger in my body again AND I’ve filled my coaching practice with fiercely strong women who know how to take care of themselves {and each other} recovery time is a breeze. ➕ So I soak in the quiet, lounge in the sun, continue my Outlander obsession {book 7!!} get all the cuddles from my fur babies, and prepare to jump back into sessions and a few projects I’m SUPER excited about on Wednesday. ➕ Damn it feels good to be so clearly in my purpose these days. And this purring right on my heart= melting 🤩 . . . . . #theworthinessrevolution #warriortoqueen #queenshit #meowtoroar #Guinevere #theholygrail #spiritualwarrior #spiritualjourney #carlsbad #northcountysd #lifecoach #lightworker #womenempoweringwomen #encinitas #feelthefearanddoitanyway #speakyourtruth #spinpeloton #athena #lightwarrior #alphafemale #alpha #dragonwisdom #warriorwoman #strongisthenewpretty #womenempowerment #embodiment #worthinessvssuccess #moveyourbody #sobercurious #unlockyourbodyclaimyourworth

I started reading Josh Korda’s (@dharmapunxnyc) book Unsubscribe on Saturday ... and then ran into him in Wholefoods. While reading, I had marked page after page. Every time I found myself going “yes! This is my message too!” I actually reference the Dharma Punx and their work in Material Girl, Mystical World - how when I first read about them way back before this whole Numinous thing, my spirit recognized a pair of absolute soul brothers. It amazes me how, without ever having studied the Buddhist teachings in depth, so much of this philosophy runs through my veins. My life. My work. Feels like COMMON SENSE. Oh and then I looked up Buddha’s birthday ... and it’s celebrated April 8, same day as mine (and Betty Ford’s!!) here in the US. As well as original PUNK rocker @viviennewestwood’s. Serendipity on serendipity. Must mean something, right?! What risk are you prepared to take to create meaning for yourself in the fresh new feels of this Aries New Moon? ⚡️🔥⚡️#Numinous #Numiverse #peace #love #dharmapunx #nyc #unsubscribe #buddhist #buddhism #sobercurious #clubsodanyc #soberlife #magicmonday #aries #newmoon #entrepreneurlife #entrepreneurquotes #qotd #highvibelife #materialgirlmysticalworld

Sometimes when we speak of change, we focus on what we may be losing out on, when really there are so many gains that occur when we change our relationship with alcohol.

M O O N R I S E K I N ‘ D O M: 💓It all started with an intention, a breathe, a rhythm...as the beat pulsed, minds melted, bodies felt connected. Some #KundaliniDisco captures x @nadine_freniere from last Sunday’s legendary Club SÖDA gathering at @our_habitas in NYC with @kinsocialtonic and friends... big ups to @the_numinous @guidedbybiet and @csspaulding for all the support, love and the containers they are cultivating to explore new frontiers of connection to Self and service to community. So much more fun to come ! 💓 . . . #sobercurious #kundalinidisco #habitashousenyc #clubsodanyc #spring #highvibe #letsdance #letgo #lightenup #kundaliniyoga #meditation #nowage #aquarianage #ageofaquarius #yogibhajan

It’s been almost six months since I was on the TEDx stage. . Two minutes before going on stage I HAD NO MIC. They couldn’t get the mic attached to my sweater... . When I got on stage I looked down at the stage clock and it was black. I HAD NO CLOCK. It broke right before I went on. This was anxiety provoking because I was told during the weeks leading up to the talk that if I go over 18 minutes there’s a chance TED.com wouldn’t accept the video. . Even if you never speak on stage, I’m sure you can understand the feeling of “operating w/out a compass/guide” (the clock) and “the unknown” (hoping the mic is picking up my voice and not falling back inside my sweater). . Cognitively trying to “understand” why the mic and clock weren’t cooperating in the moment does NOTHING to calm my anxiety in the moment. . I had no time for pre-frontal cortex analysis. And neither do you when you’re in the heat of anxiety and discomfort. . As much as my pre-frontal cortex understood and rehearsed my talk. I prepared my limbic brain even more. . The limbic brain is on rapid fire when we’re stressed, so this is the part of the brain that we need to train and pay attention to! . When the body is calm the (limbic) mind can be calm, not the other way around. . So I practiced grounding my body for weeks before I got on that TEDx stage. You can practice this too! . I brought my attention to my feet and felt the ground beneath me. I literally sat on that red circle on stage before anyone was in the TEDx auditorium that day and I felt, focused on the ground/stage beneath me. . When my body felt anchored into the ground, my breath could do what it knows to do. . Training your nervous system is one of the most useful things you can do in this day and age. It’s not woo woo, magic or bypassing hard feelings. It’s about physically anchoring down so you can emotionally pivot and rebound on a moments notice. . When all was said and done my talk came in under 18 minutes. I didn’t have the clock to reach to that day but I had the ground! There’s a metaphor in this, go touch the ground. Literally touch it, sit or walk on the earth. It’s one of the most practical ways to regulate your nervous system.

Scenes from last weekend’s Club SÖDA NYC *birthday edition* - a success, if this can be judged on happy faces, connections made, minds and hearts opened, perceptions expanded, consciousness raised. And we may not serve alcohol but I had the spirits on my side this time ... with a little help from @hausofhoodoo and her magic fixed candles. Curious? Read all about it at my profile link. And this is me signing off for the weekend ... ✨🕯✨ #Numinous #Numiverse #sobercurious #clubsodanyc #spiritsandspirituality #consciousness #revolution #wellness #healing #community #highvibelife #materialgirlmysticalworld

In UK universities, drinking to excess is a socially accepted norm. I remember it well. That binge drinking is socially acceptable is non-sensical, it increases risk-taking behaviour, increases vulnerability to threat, causes ruptures in relationships, the list goes on... Imagine if the cool guys at uni were the ones that exemplified controlled/moderate drinking, knowing 0-2 was optimal for their health/behaviour 🤔 As Gandhi said, “It’s better to walk alone than with a crowd going in the wrong direction” #change #habits #health #wellness #bingedrinking #drinkingculture #sober #sobriety #addiction #recovery #sober #soberlifestyle #mindfuldrinking #controlleddrinking #mindfulness #mentalhealth #emotionalhealth #alcoholfree #nohangover #anxiety #relationships #sobercurious

You can have excuses or you can have results - you can’t have both. Do you know how many times I’ve been too tired to workout? Loads. Do you know how many times I’ve just not felt like it? Loads. Do you know how often I ‘didn’t have time’ to work out so had to rearrange things and make time? Loads. But do you know how many times I’ve regretted a workout? Never. Not once. Not ever. I prioritise my health - NO EXCUSES.

Sunday I spoke to room full of people about my sobriety and seeking therapy and God to deal with my anger issues. It’s never easy talking to people about personal issues that most people would go to great lengths to hide. I’m thankful for for my sister @guidedbybiet for inviting me into the space. I shared with and connected to Ruby @the_numinous and she is joining our work in the community. I sat on a panel with @jen.batch and true rock n rolla @jonnypodell Shout out to everyone for making this Sober Curious event super dope. @thesoberglow l@sahdsimone @siririshi @theclassbytt @themichaelventura @thewishcraft @lovetouchpoint @our_habitas and @kinsocialtonic @_kyma_ #Numinous #Numiverse #peace #love #sobercurious #clubsodanyc #urbanretreat #workshop #event #highvibelife #materialgirlmysticalworld

We know that red wine stains are the WORST on clothes and carpet, but what about the impact alcohol is having in other (more important) areas of our lives? Abstinence is not the only way to change your relationship with alcohol, join the #moderationmovement with effective strategies and tools to take control of your relationship with alcohol, and regain control in your life. #sobercurious #moderation #recoverychoice #alternativetreatment #addictionmedicine #harmreduction #control #empower #freedom #nomoretidetogo

Grounded. Rooted down. Solid with internal sturdiness. On purpose & connected to life. —A gentle reminder that no matter what you are experiencing right now at this moment, the option to ground down and breathe is always available to you. ✨

Yep you read that right. This is my husband’s best joke. And it always makes me giggle. Every. Single. Time. Not because it’s eye-rollingly stupid (don’t tell him I said that) but because it reminds me of happy times...the first time I heard it...how much I laughed when my stepson asked if he could tell that joke instead of his best man’s speech at our wedding...watching them tell it all the time, over and over again. It makes me feel all fuzzy inside. For #day10 of the #blurtselfcareathon the topic is laugh. I’m lucky enough that laughter is a huge part of my life and this joke right here 👆 is gold to me💛 . . . #alcoholfree #sober #sobriety #soberforthehealthofit #teetotal #teetotaler #alcoholfree #lifestyle #sobernation #soberaf #changeyourworld #aintdrinking #nomorehangovers #thedrylife #sobermovement #sobercurious #soberisthenewshitfaced #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #fightingdepression #fightinganxiety #sunday #selfcare #selfcaresunday #shamefreezone #jokes #laugh #blurtselfcareathon

Because we’re all human. We all have hurt feelings and sad stories and shattered dreams and broken hearts. We will all have moments or days or weeks or years when it feels too hard. Too much. Too sad. Too hopeless. And we all try to escape our discomfort in whatever way we can. Sometimes, anything feels better than actually feeling the feelings. But we must face our pain in order to push through it. We have no chance of overcoming something if we’re always running away from it. So, if today is tough for you. If life is tough for you. Please know that you’re not alone. You couldn’t be even if you tried. Just try to sit with yourself. Sit with your pain. Try to embrace it and feel it. It’s trying to tell you something. Listen. 💙

Stumbled across this beautiful expression of joy today: ‘When life gives you lemons...eat them whole...just choke them down, skin, pulp, seeds and all...don’t break eye contact...maybe life will stop being such a bitch if you show it that you’re done fucking around.’ 😬 err....my mood today? ✔️ . . . #alcoholfree #sober #sobriety #soberforthehealthofit #teetotal #teetotaler #alcoholfree #lifestyle #sobernation #soberaf #changeyourworld #aintdrinking #nomorehangovers #thedrylife #sobermovement #sobercurious #soberisthenewshitfaced #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #fightingdepression #fightinganxiety #monday #outofmywaybitches #hormones #shamefreezone #whenlifegivesyoulemons #day9 #blurtselfcareathon

The Lion Mane is in full effect this morning. Big week of client sessions, a photo shoot for my new website, milestones, and holding another Feminine Warrior Weekend. I woke up feeling on 🔥🔥🔥 and reached a massive milestone in my own body journey, which is fueling my business in unbelievable ways {they go hand-in-hand!} ➕ When the energy of the Warrior Queen is on deck, there is nothing to do but surrender to her grace- and kick some ass while doing it 👊🏻 ➕ A quick note: There is still ONE space available in this weekend’s event AND one spot in the beta version of my new 9 Month Liberate 1:1 program {at a very sweet introductory investment!}. Interested in one or both? Email me at jen@jenblackstock.com or send me a DM so we can discuss 🔥 ➕ And a special thanks to @bri_nanna.hair for bringing the blond back in full force. I feel like ME again!!

The welcoming of spring. 🌱 How do you prepare for a fresh new season? It is time to let go of the old to make room for the new. What is no longer serving you? What behaviour and beliefs can you prune and lovingly leave behind as you rise up into your fullness? ✨

This is what it’s all about. Without fail, when I am feeling overwhelmed by life. Anxious. Stressed. Depressed. Any of those “bad” emotions (which are all just loving messages from my soul …) CONNECTION is what pulls me back. Reflects back to me that whatever I am feeling is OKAY. Reminds me we are all in this together. That we’ve got each other’s backs. Yesterday’s Club SÖDA NYC event was billed as “A Day of Deep Connection and Conscious Un-cocktailing.” CONSCIOUS being the other key c-word. Because in the world we live in—where this thing you’re using right now creates the ILLUSION of connection—we must consciously seek out and create ways to connect. Or it’s too easy to just live on here and pretend. For me, this also means connecting SOBER. Meaning being fully present. Choosing to truly see each other and be seen. Alcohol creates another connection mirage. When we drink, we dull our ability to create new memories. We can wake up the next day wondering: did that really happen?! When so much of modern life is a “virtual reality” what we need to balance this is more REALITY reality!! I made so many amazing new memories yesterday. Check out my stories for some scenes from the day! Thanks to @kinsocialtonic for making it possible. To our incredible presenters @sirirish @sahdsimone @christopheglass @lovejmw @themichaelventura @thewishcraft @courtney_deri of @theclassbytt and @_kyma_. To our keynote speakers @jonnypodell and @hawk.newsome. To @our_habitas for hosting. To my SÖDA sista @guidedbybiet. And most of all to those who came and got f*cking real with us. Best birthday party ever!! ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨ #Numinous #Numiverse #peace #love #connection #clubsodanyc #sobercurious #soberlife #selflove #selfcare #healing #feelings #sundayfunday #realityhigh #magicmonday #hangoverfree #highvibelife #materialgirlmysticalworld

There’s this thing that I call drinking amnesia. I think there’s a scientific name for it, but I just call it Drinking Amnesia. It describes what I did for many years and it happens to pretty much everyone on this gray area drinking spectrum. . Here’s how it goes: I drink, I love the physical “effect” of wine for the first 20 minutes, then I feel gross (physically) the next day, I get tired of this ground hog day drinking experience so I stop drinking for weeks/months, and then I think, “why am I being so restrictive? I can have a glass of wine...” . So I drink again and the cycle continues. . That’s drinking amnesia. . After a period of not drinking this is the mental conversation that happens. . — It would be so nice to share a bottle of wine with _____ at _____. . — Live a little, everything in moderation. . — I’m not *that* bad. . — I’m overthinking this, I can have a glass of wine every now and again. . Here’s what I know to be true. . It never changes! . The romanticized ideal of sipping whatever on a veranda by an ocean cliff in a sophisticated fashion never happens. . What happens instead is regret, physical bloat, puffy skin, a GI system that gets twisted into knots with nausea. Lost days and lost time of not being productive or able to show up - literally. . Drinking amnesia. I had it for years. Then one day I looked past my drinking fantasy (that never happened) and I remembered. . I remembered the reality of how I actually felt and what happened after drinking. I wrote it down. Bullet points. On paper. . Facts! The actual tangible 3-dimensional, real life experience is what dissolves, gets rid of drinking amnesia. . 1212 days alcohol free. 1212 days remembering very clearly my ground hog day loop, not the drinking (fantasy) amnesia! . . #healthylifestyle #edityourlife #nourish #drylife #breakthestigma #alcoholfree #soberaf #alcohol #sobercoach #noalcohol #soberissexy #sobercurious #soberculture #recovery
