spirituality - 10.5m posts

    Everything that happens, and every person we meet is here to teach us so that we may continue to learn and grow. Our life experiences are our perfect teachers. 
We have no control over anything in the outer world, but the great news is that we have 100% control over how we will respond. Let go of trying to control the things we can't, and accept ourselves in the moment with complete faith and trust that all is well. #universe #inspiration #blessings #spirituality #mindfullness #patience #reality

    🔸Shri Hari (The Lord) has accepted  those mangoes 🥭which have performed penance in the heat and turned from green to gold. One that has specially been accepted by Shri Hari becomes respectable to the world and a celebration. 🔸Let us also learn how to tolerate and provide happiness to others. Let us ripen our true self and be of service to this world which is the Lord Himself. Then, our Lord will accept amidst celebrations like Aambo-Utsav (celebration). 🥭 🔸Felicitations to all in Shri Hari’s Aambo-Utsav 🙏

This is a terrible picture of me (could I be any more shiny? 🙈) but my only one with Prof Gerry Bodeker. He is the co-founder of @ayuswellness and the main reason I decided to take another week away from teaching so soon after my recent retreat in Siem Reap when all I really wanted to do was get back to my students.
.
As a yoga teacher, I am surrounded by other teachers and so-called healers touting "natural" cures, promising enlightenment, spiritual awakenings and weekend workshops to nail the perfect backbend, headstand, arm balance and whatever else we are chasing. .
.
Gerry is known for his work in wellness and traditional, complementary & alternative medicine. What I liked about my conversation with him is that he spoke of healing but in the language of science. .
.
The combination of forest-bathing, deep sleep, nutrition and cultivating mental / psychological resilience is exactly the kind of project that I've always envisioned being part of and this week in Mulu filled me with a deeper respect for nature and our natural biological systems 🌲🌲🌲

    Jamaica Kincaid’s coming of age novella, Annie John, is set in mid-20th century Antigua. Told through evocative, connected vignettes, we see Annie grapple with her sexuality; her relationship with her parents; the expectations of both British colonial and Antiguan society; spirituality; and, finally, whether to leave home without any of these issues neatly resolved.

    Week two of a new Bedtime ritual after the little one goes to bed:

3 drops of Florida water aka flower water/essence in my hands 3 deep breaths in and out followed by a short prayer while grounding myself and calling energy in. Next...
.
5 minutes of sensing my energy around my body. This is not always tangible/felt most times it’s incredibly subtle.
.
10-15 minutes of rattling using a shamans rattle over my body to break up stagnant/blocked energy and sweeping it out. This technique and the sensing energy exercise I learned during an energy healing I had last Tuesday. Good shit, I tell you.
.
10 minutes of Reiki on myself from head to toe. By the time I get to my heart space I’m nodding in and out of deep relaxation. I use the timer in the #insighttimer app and it's AMAZING in setting the ambiance.
.
I’ll increase my time when it feels right, for I am in no hurry.  I'm taking my time in this apprenticeship to myself and applying these different techniques to healing myself. These skills/tools will take time to cultivate. Growth is uncomfortable and healing isn't pretty, but it's crucial to take out the garbage that we store within.

    Playing the victim is a lot easier than admitting you’ve hurt someone you love. It’s easy to find excuses for your behavior & reasons to justify the ways you broke a heart. Maybe there was an emptiness within the relationship, maybe the fights were constant, maybe you simply fell out of love, maybe you guys grew up together & in turn out grew each other.
It’s okay to have different dreams, different outlooks on life, different opinions. Your aspirations change & your lifestyles change & maybe you don’t see eye to eye anymore. 
But that doesn’t give you the right to lie or cheat or literally crumble a persons world. If you’re unhappy leave, if you feel trapped leave, if you don’t know how to fight temptation just fucking leave. 
Very few are the men & women who walk away from a relationship like an adult, without any lies. They walk away the right way & let go the best way they can. They hold up their end of deals you guys may have made early on, they walk away & it hurts but you are so lucky to have been respected enough & valued enough & loved enough by someone to take care of your heart this way. 
So what I’m saying is, don’t hurt anyone & if you do, don’t tell them what they’re feeling is not valid. We’re all human. We all have our issues. This world is already crazy & life is already so short, be genuine in all that you do & show all the love you can. Be kind & understanding & considerate. Don’t break a heart because you were too weak to say no. 
For those of you going through something dark right now — it passes. My god does it pass! Take it from someone who’s lost love many times. Each time it brought me closer to the sweetest man I’ve ever known. Don’t give up on love, don’t take it for granted either 🌕💫
Sending you love my dears! 🖤

    Powerful words from my spirit guide 🔥
⁣
Recently I’ve been feeling stuck in life which I will go into more detail about tomorrow. I felt powerless, I felt my destiny was in the hands of everyone but myself. I was in a period of waiting, feeling stuck and feeling unhappy 😩⁣
⁣
The theme of becoming unstuck from situations had been coming up in client sessions, in my own life and even around me. Then one morning these words were echoed to me so clearly from my spirit guide and I remembered who I was 🙌🏼⁣
⁣
When we outgrow situations we become stuck. As spiritual beings we are constantly growing, evolving and up-levelling which means things that aren’t in alignment with us or for our highest good anymore will start to fall away. The feeling of being stuck or powerless comes from giving our power away, from forgetting we create our future and forgetting our worth ❤️⁣
⁣
You may feel stuck because your resisting the change that needs to occur, it can feel scary and almost like...what next? I feel you Queen but the more I sat there not moving, shrinking myself and giving my power away it got worse and worse. Nothing manifested or improved in my happiness until I remembered that we’re not a tree, we’re not planted, get up and walk the fuck away from what’s not meant for you anymore or making you happy 🌳⁣
⁣
As soon as I walked the glass ceiling shattered the illusion was removed and I could see just what I’d been doing to myself. I was blocking happiness, abundance and flow all because I was listening to everyone outside of myself apart from what my soul truly knew and wanted. Taking back your power is something we all need to remember. So if you’re feeling stuck - you need to move, you need to create shift and do something different. No matter what it is remember your worth and that you deserve the world Queen. Never let anyone dull your sparkle just because they can’t handle your shine ✨

    Life begins when you stop looking outside your innate nature for happiness. All the love and joy you could ever imagine exists within you. While the outside world may seem to bring you transient pleasure, it also becomes your prison. A slave to your own desires is no freedom whatsoever. Instead free yourself from the confines of pleasure and pain and find something deeper. This is what meditation is, it is liberation from the suffering of not knowing oneself and looking externally for fulfillment. If you truly want to meet yourself for the first time, meet in silence. Come to know the vast ocean of experience that you are and in so doing, you will know all the universe and you will be free.
