Who knew you could get such a burn with light weights - who's tried my arm sequence? Inspired from the likes of @psyclelondon and @theboxxmethod #trainwithaim #londonfitness #boxxlikeaboss #boxxmethod @redagencyldn

Been reading Sharon Salzberg's "Real Love" lately and have been loving her influence on my thinking. When it comes to partnership, I'm not interested in hanging in there. I want to do the harder things like softening up enough to be surprised. #mindfulrelationships

This is one of the most lovely combos ever in the diffuser!
.
Juniper berry is cleansing and clarifying to the mind and the best oil for reducing nighttime fears and bad dreams.
.
Douglas fir is strengthening, grounding, and helps to reduce anxious feelings.
.
I love to diffuse equal parts of each oil! It smells heavenly and is so perfect for diffusing at any time of day! 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼

A gratidão te mantém em sintonia com o Ser Infinito e em relacionamento com a Lei da Criação.
Sem um coração agradecido a pessoa se torna insatisfeita e aborrecida com as circunstâncias e condições presentes.
Lembre-se de que, se permitir que a sua mente se concentre na limitação e na carência, você só terá à sua volta a miséria e coisas inferiores. Fixe sua atenção nas coisas mais elevadas e melhores da vida para que as mesmas se manifestem em seu universo pessoal!
Isto apenas significa que tudo aquilo que você da muita atenção, e sensibiliza no subconsciente, vai se concretizar!
Por isso seja grato, por tudo!
Quanto mais agradecido, mais sua mente estará ligada na Fonte de todas as curas e de todas as boas coisas do Universo. E é só isso que você vai receber! É só isso que vai estar na sua vida! É só isso que você vai ser! ✨✨✨✨✨Gratidão ✨✨✨✨✨✨ “Todas as coisas estão prontas, se a nossa mente também estiver”.🦋

"You are out there and I am out here and this is not the time.⠀

But the time may come to pass: that is how time works. ⠀

The only question that matters now, then, is whether our hearts have connected, and can learn to breathe together.⠀

If you had a spare hour, I would not want to see you. I would want you to take a break from your path and do something lovely for yourself. A massage, or a swim, or fun with friends…whatever you have not done for yourself that you are thirsty for. Maitri. Space is love and I give that which cannot be given to but can only be taken from you.⠀

And you need it: as you have said, it provides ground for good things to come...⠀

If you had three weeks, however, we should go to Blue Islands. White walls, blue walls, white sky, white sea, blue sea, blue skies. Your eyes. Your hair. Your bikini, my shorts, four tanned and sandy bare feet. What are the colors there? Blue, bright blue, pale blue, bluegreen, grayblue, bright pink flowers and sun, light pink and white tablecloth, white, white, white… I want to spend some time on the sea and in the islands. A painted lacquered wooden boat, your red dress. Impossibly blue sky and water. See-through white curtains in a hot breeze." ~ @waylonlewis, #thingsiwouldliketodowithyou 📕 All books signed this month: elephantjournal.com/books 📕 or click link in bio 👆⠀⠀⠀

Be kind for everyone is fighting a hard battle 💋 Waking up with a tender heart this morning as I sit here with Beau + consider the burdens our friends are carrying right now.
___
I want to share (anonymously of course) personal conversations I've had just in the last few weeks.
___
Not stories I've read. Things I heard second hand. Not even messages from students. I have just as many real life friends as anyone yet this is what that circle is carrying.
___
• Father sexually abused sister
• Brother died suddenly
• Restraining order against a stalker
• Husband is alcoholic
• PTSD from father's death
• Abortion
• Father is homeless
• Thoughts of suicide
___
This is not to mention finances, health, stress, overwhelm, self-doubt, conflict with friends, a breakup, unhappiness with weight... a hundred other hard things where everyone is dealing with something.
___
Yet instead of feeling gutted by the weight of it I find myself thinking "Wow we are strong!" and "Thank God we have each other".
___
Whatever you're feeling, fearing or carrying this morning, you're not alone. That doesn't diminish your pain - there's no contest. It simply means we see you.
___
If you're carrying something you haven't shared, please, ask someone to coffee. ❤️ I promise you every person above felt better when they shared.
___
Hurt people hurt people. We're all hurting. Loved people love people. Let yourself be loved. And even when someone is acting out of hurt, love them back. ❤️

Today's post on facebook.com/shellymeditation: The statements “things always work out for me” and “I just got screwed” can be equally true. But which thought serves us better? Which one puts out the kind of energy we want to embrace in the world? Everything can be a jumping off point for something new, if we are willing to choose the best interpretation and move forward. If “I just got screwed,” it means someone else takes dominion over my life, and that is a stance that is not empowering. But if, “things always work out for me,” then I dictate my life because I know my future holds a different experience. To come to this juncture where we can choose - where we have enough awareness to recognize that our thoughts do not run our life, that we can choose differently - this is freedom. Freedom of interpretation, freedom to dictate our own lives, freedom to choose thoughts that work for us can liberate us from our own limiting self-made constructs. If we want to be successful, we have to maintain our "locus of control." We can also call it self-containment or self-direction. It’s basically the ability to work with what has been handed to us and turn it into something else. We have the freedom to decide what we do with information, how we interpret our life, how we dictate our future, change our minds, or make new decisions. All of it is a choice. Our choice. And in choosing, we find freedom.

🍃 Plastic Free July Challenge #8: Ditch the plastic toothbrush for a compostable alternative! But Jane, aren't bamboo toothbrushes a lot more expensive!? 💵 👇🏻
.
It's crazy to think that a plastic toothbrush is designed to last 3 months but it is made of a material that takes over 500 years to break down. Where's the sense in that? Buying bamboo toothbrushes is a great alternative! The nylon bristles can be removed + recycled (I recommend putting them inside of a plastic container before recycling) and the bamboo handle can be composted. If you don't #compost at home, you can find a nearby restaurant or grocery store that has compost bins and disposing of the handle that way! You could also burn the handle in a fireplace or campfire. The bamboo toothbrush I'm using now is made by @the_greenroot. I really like how the bristles are tapered specifically to better clean teeth! And their packaging is totally #plasticfree.👌🏻I highly recommend them, a box of 4 is $13.
.
For toothpaste, I like supporting an Etsy shop called Mindful Mantra. The owner, Gabi, makes amazing natural, #vegan toothpaste and it comes in a glass Ball jar. The toothpaste is made of bentonite clay, coconut oil, trace minerals, and essential oils. I can't get all of those ingredients #packagefree. So I opt to buy the toothpaste instead of having all sorts of products shipped to me. One jar lasts ~5 months and is $8.
.
Dental products are one area of my life where I spend more than before I discovered zero waste. I currently spend around $30 more per year on dental products to avoid unrecyclable plastics + chemical additives. But a #zerowaste lifestyle saves me SO much money in other ways that the added expense is worth it. I used to spend $36 per year on disposable razor blades from Dollar Shave Club. Now I spend less than $4 per year on safety razor blades. A box of 100 blades cost me $10 and at the rate I'm going, this box will last me +3 years. So right there, I'm saving over $30 a year on shaving. That evens out the extra cost of teeth! Less trash, more wins. 😀 #plasticfreejuly #goingzerowaste #savingmoney #bambootoothbrush #yayforearth #ourplanetourhome #janeandsimple #zerowasteblogger

"I live with my uncle and grandmother because my mother's in the village and my father's a truck driver who's always on the road. I used to study in a private school, but my father couldn't afford the fees, so l shifted to a public school...but I really like it here! I usually wake up at 5am to fill the water and cook breakfast for my my grandmother and younger sister. Uncle has a restaurant, so I then make pani- puri water.. I make it very tasty - you should try it sometime! Then I get ready and drop my sister off at her pre- school, and from there I walk 30 minutes to get to my school. love studying, playing with colours and being with my friends, so I often wish that school hours would never end, but once the bell rings, I go home and start preparing dinner. I then sit down to do my homework for the day, after which I go to my uncle's restaurant to help him out. Uncle and I usually eat dinner together once everyone's left sometimes it's 1 AM; but I go to sleep excited to wake up and go to school again! I want to be a pilot someday...l can't wait to fly!

Stormy weather outside. Good coffee inside. Ooohh the smell of coffee. I let the mind wander for a moment and dream away

Stay safe and dry everyone :-) #daydreaming #coffee #cafe #blocleafcafe #vegan #manilavegans #vivamanila #lovemanila #manila #malate #zerowastelifestyle #zerowasteph #mindfulliving #travel #themanupjournal #inspiration #writing #journaling

A short drive is a great walk! I love to walk everywhere and I take the opportunity any chance I get! You get to see the most wonderful things when you walk. You get the opportunity to hear birds chirping in the morning light. You get to feel the warmth of the sun or the coolness of winter! .
Loving every single step of the process!

"Unser Verlangen ist auch unsere Berufung."
Eine sehr interessante Sichtweise, die Frau Hay da hat. Dieses große Wort "Berufung" ist so schwer zu fassen - ich habe Jahre gesucht und bin nicht fündig geworden. Dabei war es, wie sie sagt: Sie war schon in mir. Ich wusste genau, was ich wollte - nämlich eine kreative Selbstständigkeit. Nur zugelassen habe ich es nicht, bzw. es von vornherein ausgeschlossen.
Wie ich die Berufung trotzdem gefunden habe? Es war ganz einfach: Ich sagte mir, ich mache das jetzt.
Und damit platzte der Knoten - plötzlich taten sich immer mehr Ideen und Möglichkeiten auf, die ich vorher schlicht nicht zulassen wollte. Und wenn ich nur daran denke, wird mir warm vor Freude. Das ist es, wovon Louise Hay spricht.

Eine Berufung kann alles sein. Hast du deine schon gefunden? Wonach verlangt dein Herz insgeheim? .

P A S T • P R E S E N T .
Yes, it's all about living in the NOW cos your present is a gift (a present) but learning from the past, leaving it and not living it (thanks @faits.n.quotes for the reminder) is so important!
HOWEVER, it's this one oil blend called "Past Tense" by doTERRA which keeps me in the now, restores me and is my present! 😉🙏🏼
#PastTense is so excellent for my head 🤕and neck tension from being in a poor posture mode, maybe from sitting over the laptop, being crouched over as we do when we're cold, etc. My clients with extreme head tension (I'm talking about the not wanting to leave the bed and dark room variety) swear by it for #oilingaway that pain...(they apply it topically over their temples, or neck, head where they feel the tension). So when applied it smells a bit like #Deepheat however as the scent settles it's fresh, minty, herbal & amazing. I've been stopped before wearing this and asked "what perfume I'm wearing?" It's that good! (Ha! Little do they know this amazing scent is actually helping me destress and relax) .
🛍🛍🛍🛍
PastTense is a distinctive blend of essential oils known to help provide grounding and balanced emotions. Known for their soothing effects on both the mind and body, the essential oils in PastTense quickly, promote feelings of relaxation and calm emotions. PastTense comes in a convenient 10mL roll-on for easy application when at work, school, or home. Simply apply to the neck, shoulders, or behind the ears to help calm emotions while breathing in the cooling, distinctive aroma of PastTense. .
The pure essential oils included are: Wintergreen Leaf, Lavender Flower, Peppermint Plant, Frankincense Resin, Cilantro Herb, Marjoram Leaf, Roman Chamomile Flower, Basil Leaf, and Rosemary Leaf essential oils.
🎁
It's only $18.50 wholesale (US) or $23.50 down under/NZ. Let me hook you up! Contact me via my contact button or send me a DM to get yours wholesale! 💜

Meet BLISS, a kit specially curated to encourage feelings of calm and comfort with 4 essential oils included - lavender, orange, cedarwood and bergamot. Use it on its own, or mix them up - you decide. Browse full collection in the link in bio.

😲😲And then there are those projects that just make you proud. 😲😲 To think this is the fifth carved skull I've ever made in my life.

Hope your week is blessed my friends!

GRATITUDE // For two years, I wrote a grateful list on a Friday. At first, it required some thinking but soon I discovered the gratitude in little things, ordinary days and even the messy ones ● I've swapped my weekly list for a monthly one, and do my best to speak my gratitude as well as write it ● Making this month's list: our newly planted roses {check out that colour!}; blue skies on cold winter days; uncontrollable laughter; the wisdom of my children; slow weekends and slow-cooked meals; plus morning yoga and time to meditate ● How do you practice gratitude? What are you grateful for today? ❤ Elisa X #gratitude #thelittlethings

Sacred. Portrait 36/40 of the Faces of the Divine Feminine series. 🦋 I have two portraits in this series that are adjectives (Sacred + Fierce). The rest are nouns. I'm trying to sit with the discomfort of that.

#grammarpolice #imperfections #acceptingwhati 🦋⭐️🦋

The sound of my own voice rings in my ears as I hold my thumb in place and record. "I remember how uncomfortable I was when I first came home. How, even weeks later I was still struggling to understand everything that I was feeling. Everything was the same but also completely different. I was completely different. Like, putting on old clothes that don't fit anymore, right?"
-
I watch as the message goes from "Delivered" to "Kept". He calls.
-
“It’s not so much like putting on something old that doesn’t fit. It’s like putting on my favorite thing, something I love. Something I wear all the time. My favorite T-shirt. Except I don’t feel amazing in it like I used to.”
-
I think to myself that it’s exactly like that, as I register the combination of melancholy and exhaustion in his voice. Coming home can be EXACTLY like that.
-
The places and people we loved before - still here. All the same. But sometimes we’re not the same. Everything appears as it always was but reality is constructed anew as we find ourselves being painted differently in the picture. Loving everyone and everything still but as something else ourselves. SomeONE else ourselves.  You grab your favorite T-shirt out of the closet, and as you take in your reflection for the millionth time wearing it, you think that maybe it’s time for a new shirt…It’s just, not the same…
-
But this morning as I stand outside in the shower, naked save for my own skin, something occurs to me as I think about this metaphor-driven conversation about clothes…
-
Maybe the clothes feel wrong because, our true, authentic nature is to be standing outside, naked and exposed.

Prairie cemetery sunsets 💕
