Nothing has value until we give it value.
What is determining your own value?
We are literally defining/ evaluating ourselves based on perceptions and beliefs we have.
To put this in perspective;
A band t-shirt is just a t-shirt until u listen to and love the band
A Ritual is just a ritual until U try it and love the results
A Book is just a book till u know the story or see that it is a ‘best-seller’.
A Card is just a card until it’s gifted to you.
A company is just a business until u know the product, story, & mission.
A ring is just a ring until someone asks you to marry them
A day is just a day until someone is born or something happens
Money is just a piece of paper until you spend it on something ‘worth’ more.
A Person is just another person until you realize they’re an influencer, pro, a celeb, or someone you can relate/ connect to.
A Butt/body is just a butt/shape until someone writes a song about it.
When considering why we feel a certain way about ourselves or we see ourselves a certain way...
We have to gain understanding on WHAT our evaluations are based on
You might think that an awesome body is one with super defined muscles because you’re surrounded by bodybuilders
But the other women you know think that an awesome body is one which can digest food, be flexible, & lift their kids.
They may not even care at all if their stomach has 3+ visible lines and veins on their arms.
So, I encourage you to take a deeper look, gain an outside point of view.
WHAT are the variables controlling the outcome of your conclusion?
WHAT are the ingredients that make you determine if this recipe is ‘good’ or ‘bad’
WHAT DETERMINES HOW YOU DEFINE YOURSELF?
I guarantee you that when you understand where your defining factors are coming from...
you will understand why you feel how you feel about your results.
I mean, you didn’t just out of the blue decide that in order to be ‘successful’, ‘worthy’, or ‘desirable’ you had to be a certain way
Something influenced that belief...
Find out what it is & determine if you’d like to keep it because it serves you or if it’s better to let it go because it derails you.
We really don’t know what we don’t know but evaluating and gaining perspective can open our eyes a bit more...
So, what’s really determining your value?
✨Your only job in life is to SHINE✨
How you make that job freeing, fun, & fulfilling while doing your absolute best at it?
That’s up to you, girl.
If you have a bunch of:
🥀Darkness inside of you
⏰Worries out the wazoo
Then you cannot expect to be the brightest, most loving, high vibing energetic version of yourself.
That’s like expecting⬇️
Your phone to work without charging it📲
Your car to drive without putting gas in⛽️
Your peanut butter and jelly sandwich to taste good without peanut butter
👏🏻IT AIN’T GONNA HAPPEN
Don’t kid yourself.
But really though...let’s get serious about this...
We were all born as, and truly are, just these incredible sources of energy.
You are a bunch of atoms just bouncing around this beautiful universe & if you think for a second you’re not at all:
✨A frikkin miracle
Then come here and let me slap some sense into you because you must be crazy.
I could tell you that it’s so much work, you know with all the;
•Conscious decision making
But damnit I wont even go there right now because one day you just have to wake yourself up and decide that;
🤩TODAY YOU SHOW UP, SHINE, & VIBE, AT THE HIGHEST FREQUENCY🤩
TO THEN GET TO THE NEXT LEVEL & THE NEXT & THEN AGAIN & AGAIN & AGAIN
Wake up sister, the world needs you shine
YOUR BREAKDOWN IS JUST THE WARM UP FOR YOUR BREAKTHROUGH
I never thought going through such an emotional, crazy, & depressing time in my life would lead me to this...
I vividly recall sitting on the couch like a slug, totally out of my own element, like I wasn’t even present in my own body
Suddenly I felt this surge come over me shaking me to say:
“THIS IS NOT YOUR LIFE!!! YOU CAN BE HAPPY, FREE, AND FULFILLED AND YOU KNOW IT!!!
THE PAIN OF GETTING THROUGH IT WILL NEVER BE AS BAD AS THE PAIN OF STAYING IN IT, GET OUT NOW!
IF YOU REALLY DIDN’T WANT TO FEEL THIS WAY YOU WOULD DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!”
And so I did…I went back to the basics.
I revisited my self-love, body image, mindset exercises, journal prompts, & meditations that have saved me before.
I rewrote my identity, came to terms with what is and was, and found peace in acceptance of the journey.
I talked to people about how I felt, opened up about my pains/struggles, & trusted that my vulnerability would provide me answers.
I looked beyond the surface to determine what exactly was getting to me so much, where was the real pain!?
And it was a daily, conscious choice to wake up & recommit to choosing ME and MY happiness.
(even when things felt like they were crumbling around me)
That’s the thing about getting the post-show blues or being in a funk after a show or, in my case, show after show after show…
It just hits you. And if you aren’t on top of it, getting ahead of it, or addressing it; it will absolutely consume you.
If this sport was truly just about the physical body, you wouldn’t see so many people quit, suffer, or choose to never pursue it.
That’s why I want to make sure bikini competitors have tools to enhance & strengthen their ability to get through it!
I am so excited for my upcoming bikini competitor mastermind & workshop
for the improvement season!
I’ll be taking you through some of my most powerful tools for;
➡️ESTABLISHING A HEALTHIER RELATIONSHIP WITH FOOD
➡️MINDSET, IDENTITY, & PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT WORK
➡️BODY IMAGE HEALING
➡️SETTING NEW STANDARDS & SO MUCH MORE!
The link to learn more and attend is here: https://celeste-rainsturk.clickfunnels.com/live-bikini-mastermind-event-info ❤️😊
I REFUSE TO HIDE THIS SIDE OF ME!!🙅🏻♀️
Women are taught to hide their bodies & feel ashamed for totally embracing them!
Most women are either rewarded with the wrong attention or ridiculed for showcasing their ‘sexy’ side.
It’s no wonder so many women struggle with things like;
➡️Unhealthy relationships with food
➡️Adjusting to changes within our body (hormones, gut, digestion, development, etc)
➡️Seeing changes externally (or not seeing them)
➡️Feeling confident in our skin
➡️Being comfortable in our clothing
➡️Posting a photo like this or showing more skin in public
➡️Fear of judgement, rejection, loss, or unwanted attention
❗️THE LIST GOES ON (I bet you could name a few more🤔)❗️
The point is, if we as women want to see this change;
We have to be willing to step out of the comfort zone which was created for us by others (wtf?!)
It was difficult to even pose for this shot because I had never done it before!
And I felt like I might lose the right followers & clients, attract the wrong ppl, or be judged for it by those I care about.
So, here’s my hell yes to finally posting this photo, sharing my thoughts, and owning it.
Because my actions are meant to be taken from my own beliefs not others’ 😊

WHOSE LIFE ARE YOU LIVING?! Life from the Subconscious and The Impact of Social Media on Self-Esteem
WHOSE LIFE ARE YOU LIVING?!
Who is setting your standards?
What research says about social media and self esteem...
Just bc the people you follow on Instagram, who seem amazing, are portraying, lifestyles doesn’t mean it has to be your way!
There’s no doubt that success leaves clues & we can all learn from each other.
But it’s important to also be aware of why we are thinking, acting, and living the way we do.
If it is not because we truly feel a deep desire or are inspired to, then why would we?
For a research report I looked into research that’s been done for the impact of social media on young women.
What they discovered was that most women’s self-esteem DROPPED when they thought their life or actions were different than those with higher perceived likeability or approval basically within society.
(They measured this based on engagement shown on the feed plus positive outcomes / perceptions)
What I’m getting at, is that this life is actually YOURS.
But throughout your life you’ll be influenced psychologically in conscious and mostly subconscious ways.
This means you won’t even realize it.
It’s easy, and naturally expected within the human race, to be influenced by our environments.
Many people just wake up one day & think “shit, this isn’t the life I imagined or dreamed of”
Then they become motivated by PAIN. But what if you could be motivated by pain BEFORE it hits you?
Asking yourself; WHAT HAPPENS IF I DON’T?!
Do what I love, follow my dreams, speak my mind, stand up for myself, set standards, write that book, go to the gym, start journaling, invest in myself, etc...
RAISE YOUR AWARENESS BEFORE IT WAKES YOU UP AND SLAPS YOU IN THE FACE.
It’s a choice, it’s a decision, & it’s a commitment to action.
Want to see a change in your life for good but don't know where to start?
Need help just taking the action you KNOW you need to take?
Wish you could just have someone help you figure out the next best action step?
I invite you to apply to my 1:1 self-love, mindset, and personal development coaching. There are bronze, silver, gold, and platinum packages.
With a gold package (the most popular), you will receive a coaching call with me every week, action steps and notes following each call, daily access to me for further questions and support, access to my Exclusive client only Facebook group for even more support, and real, applicable exercises and practices to incorporate in your life!
The bronze is just one call a month, most people know they need more than that but some people really just want to go really deep on one call, implement like crazy, and reconvene the next month!
Imaging what the platinum one looks like?! ;) We won't even get into that right now...first, I need you to apply.
Want to apply and see if this is a good fit for you and for me?
message me telling me you would like to and I will get you the form.
The reason I have you email me to this is because if we are going to be working closely together to do any and all of the following:
-Release limiting beliefs
-Unlearn and Relearn Behavior and Thought Patterns
-Address Negative Emotions such as: Self-Doubt, Fear, -Overwhelm, Anger, Anxiety, Guilt, Hurt, Sadness, Low -Self-Esteem, Worth, Confidence, and anything you need to release to move forward
-Up-level in any area of your life with a new mindset
-Anything specific you would like to see improve, grow, or change in your life
then we must be able to communicate with a simple message :)
Lots of love,
p.s. I already set a really powerful intention that the right people would click on this post, read it all the way through, get the nudge, and act on their urge to finally say YES to themselves and work with me :)
no need to convince the universe otherwise...chat soon xx
YOU CREATED ALL OF THIS!!!!
Take a minute to reflect on everything you’ve manifested, created, and become in your life.
None of it was by accident was it?
Maybe some seemed to come out of nowhere or by faith.
But if you really put the pieces together from the thoughts to the actions to the connections...
You’ll see that it all happened through you and for you.
You might be thinking, ‘that’s nice celeste but there’s also so much I haven’t accomplished or got that I set out to’
Instead of: ‘omg I’m amazing I really have created all of this! Imagine what else I can do!!’.
And that’s okay.
But either way, remember this, there’s a reason you don’t have everything you want yet.
When you find that reason you’ll discover the key to unlocking it.
I like to remind myself that EVERYTHING IS ENERGY and ENERGY IS EVERYTHING.
If energy cannot be created or destroyed, but it can be shifted from one form to another...
This means that what you want already exists (in some way, shape, or form).
All you have to do is change your energy to match the frequency of which the things you want are vibrating at!
Oh, but you might think you already are?
Well, looks like we also have to align with the action steps that are also vibrating on that frequency.
Here’s a simple way to do this.
Especially If you don’t know what to do or why you’re not there even though you KNOW you’re not only in full desire of what you want...
But you are also ready & willing to accept it as yours...
Then consult with someone who has ‘been there done that’. When you change, your environment changes. For better or worse.
So use your environment to help you propel.
I wouldn’t be where I am without the people I’ve hired, consulted with, or even coached!
I couldn’t have found any of these people w/o first modifying my own energy into a higher version of myself who attracts these people though.
Take responsibility for ALL aspects of growth.
It’s not just diet or exercise.
It’s not just business plans and ad spend.
It’s not just kisses and dates.
It’s not just a pay raise and a handshake.
EVERYTHING GOES SO MUCH DEEPER THAN THAT AND YOUR SOUL KNOWS IT!!!!!
Do you want to learn how to tap into the energetic frequencies of your higher self and your goals?
I have an exclusive, client only training that I ran for my VIP members and am thinking it’s time to share it with all of you.
I’m always asking myself how I can make a bigger impact & I’ve found that the more I can empower 1 person to be their best, the more of a domino affect this creates.
So... I am going to be giving away access to this training and the whole entire PDF sheet/notes on everything I teach within it.
If you’d like access please email me here and let me know you read this blog and would like it!
Then I will send you a message (so check your filtered requests too!) with the secret video & notes link for you to dive into!
I can’t wait to share this with those of you who are committed to making this happen!
Make Your Life More Meaningful and Feel More Connected to your Soul with My New and Improved Daily Ritual
THE DAILY RITUAL THAT HAS BEEN MAKING MY LIFE MORE MEANINGFUL, INTENTIONAL, AND INSPIRED!
I AM SO FRIKKIN EXCITED TO FINALLY BE SHARING THIS WITH YOU!
A few years ago I hired a mindset mentor and began a really powerful morning routine which I shared in this blog post. But I realized, after some time, I was doing it with poor energy/intentions. I decided to let it go entirely as I felt it was totally holding me back, I talk about it in this blog.
I recently discovered I was craving it again. I knew it could propel me forward in my life but I had so much resistance to it given some of the things I experienced with the person who helped me learn so much about this. However, when I let that go and just honored the incredible power it has, I decided I had to do it on my terms.
I asked myself, if I could make the perfect daily ritual that would inspire me to complete it every day, that I would look forward to, and which would make me feel good for the day while trusting my abilities to manifest anything I desire...WHAT WOULD IT LOOK LIKE?
This is how I created my own ritual. And let me tell you, it feels sooooo good to do it every morning. I decided to share it today because a few weeks ago I asked on my Instagram stories if they would like to see it and many people said YES. But even more so than that, I asked myself today, 'how can I make an immediate impact on the world today?' and I thought I could share this :)
So, first things first. I had to lay some ground rules. I am a VERY all or nothing person which sometimes hurts me because I can become very judgmental of myself or be very upset if I do not complete something I set out to complete. I set the a few intentions around the ritual:
I set these intentions as ways to address the reasons I had stopped before. It was a great way to make sure I didn't sabotage myself again. I didn't want to resent the ritual so to speak.
So, here's what I do, in a day, every day! (this does not include every detail of my day, or habits I like to have or reinforce, this is what I use to get in a positive state, take care of me, and just feel connected to my higher self)
REMEMBER: there is no particular order, some of it definitely feels better to do first thing in the morning though, but just feel it out for yourself :)
This is what I do every day, unless I feel like I am going to do it with negative or 'have to' energy.
I am not mean to myself about it and I let it flow.
I connect to my soul values and beliefs and truly allow myself to enjoy each of these things.
It may seem like a lot but it is honestly whatever you make it.
Try not to put yourself in a box or limit yourself either.
I did a 5 min yoga routine upon waking this morning instead of just my usual stretch and breathe in bed. I saw this as a gain, not a loss of time for other parts of the routine.
At the end of the day, we need to ENJOY ourselves and our life on our journey to ever-evolving self-actualizations.
Want help coming up with your daily ritual?
Need some guidance on how to utilize your mind for manifestation, presence, and peace?
Wish you knew exactly what to do for your personal development and ability to intentionally live, create, and believe?
Craving certainty, self-belief, and faith in your dreams/goals?
I would love to support you in this journey. I work with 5 clients every month in mindset, personal development, self-love, and intuitive, intentional living.
I am opening up some spots on my calendar to help you work through something in your life right now, come up with a mindset and action plan that helps you get through it with more ease so you can manifest, grow, and achieve even more.
If you would like to book a call with me to work through one limiting belief, block, or even to develop a daily ritual outline, then please complete this form here:
PASSION & PURPOSE: why do you do what you do? Do you really love it?
If you don’t have passion for what you’re doing, why are you really doing it?
There’s a million reasons why people do things even when they don’t want to do it.
But I’m not sure listing even 5 of the most common would be as beneficial for you as you just getting really honest with yourself.
Once you know why you’re doing something, you must be prepared to come to terms with the reality of that...
Can you accept the answer?
Can you accept the decisions?
Can you accept the changes?
Can you accept yourself?
A lot of the ladies in my post-show personal development program came to a huge realization last week...
They realized that they started competing for the wrong reasons. Being able to acknowledge & admit this is HUGE
When we can be vulnerable with ourselves we create space for growth in our life.
I competed one time for the wrong reasons. It was my first show in 2015 and I learned so much from that.
But it didn’t stop me.
I sorted through the negative emotions from 2015-2017 & got back to myself and before doing 5 shows over 365 days.
Each of those shows with:
Fire in my belly.
Passion in my heart.
And a mindset of love, peace, acceptance, and gratitude.
I love this sport because I love who it makes me.
When I am challenged, I raise my awareness and work through those challenges.
If you are struggling with this, there may be a disconnect between your actions, your why, and your identity.
If you haven’t listened to my podcast yet, you’ll get the perspective of many IFBB bikini pros and myself.
I’m loving witnessing these massive shifts in the ladies who have joined the first round and know this is just the beginning
I’ll be opening up the program for year round enrollment soon...if you want to get on the list for that then message me!
I’ll get you all the info and make sure it’s all in place and ready for you to jump in and join us!
Don’t worry, you won’t be playing catch up or having info overload. And you’ll have an amazing community supporting you!
Want more details? Email me here😊
When you seek change in one aspect of your life it is natural that other aspects of your life must change.
Often times though, when we seek change in one area of our life we neglect to find peace and balance in the many other changes that come with it
This tends to leave us feeling overwhelmed, critical, restricted, or confused.
The next time you seek change, find out what's necessary for you to not only embrace the change
(and challenges that come with it)
But also find what is necessary to create peace & balance within yourself to have a fulfilling journey through all the shifts.
Have a beautiful, soul powered day my loves💝😌
DISCIPLINE & WILLPOWER HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH IT
When you love yourself, you are naturally inspired to take care of your body.
When you love yourself, you make healthy, consistent movement and fuel for your body a priority.
When you love yourself, you find ways to get toxic energy, people, and thoughts out of your life.
When you love yourself, you commit to taking one step at a time even when you don’t want to.
When you love yourself, you accept the person you are on your journey to who you’re becoming.
When you love yourself, you create boundaries that keep you sane
When you love yourself, you make time for yourself without questioning it.
When you love yourself, a ‘bad’ day doesn’t turn into a bad week because you make an effort to get on top of it
When you love yourself, choosing a healthy lifestyle isn’t a chore, a diet, or a quick fix; it’s a standard.
When you love yourself, you allow yourself to move through emotions by feeling and honoring them as part of your growth
When you love yourself, make peace with yourself, and accept yourself you have all the strength you need to progress.
Change is possible for anyone at anytime.
But identity shifting is what makes change last as a commitment, a personal standard, and a NON-NEGOTIABLE.
It is more selfish to give people what is left of you rather than what you were born to bring.
Taking care of yourself.
Respecting your Body.
Honoring your emotions.
Choosing to love yourself through actions, thoughts, and energy...takes away the pain or scariness of change.
Because when you love yourself you don’t have to rely on will power or discipline to keep you from ‘slipping up’
Instead, you have a new, self-loving identity that says I AM WORTHY, DESERVING, and CAPABLE of more!
Want to tap into the power of self-love?
I’m giving away one of my most powerful self-love exercises to anyone who messages me saying ‘self-love practice’
It is an exercise that changed my entire life, I give it to EVERY client of mine because I believe in it THAT much!
Can’t wait to see who says hell yes to this opportunity 💜
