One of the most helpful tools I have learned from taking a mindfulness based stress reduction class is to acknowledge your thoughts when they are not relevant to the present moment and then showing yourself kindness for having said thought. If you are thinking ahead to the future you may want to acknowledge that as “oh there’s a future thought”, or “oh I’m planning ahead” and same goes with a past thought you may be ruminating over. #Mindfulness is not about losing thought or emotions because that is what makes us human. It is about training your brain to become more aware, so that your thoughts are not consuming you and you can truly live. It is not easy and I struggle with being present every second of my life, but there are certain moments when I feel as if my reactions to events are not ego driven and there is a glimpse of clarity and those are the moments that remind me why I continue practicing. ☀️ #mindfulness #healthandwellness #wellness #mindfulnesspractice #presence #brainhealth #tbi

One of my favorite things to do in summer is to read in the park. My favorite part is when, after a warm day, clouds come up and the light breaks into different colors. My ears filled with the soft sound of wind through the trees, my skin touched by the cool air and fresh raindrops. People and animals respond to the first sound of thunder by moving. I react by observing it all and being still for a while. In full surrender I love life so deeply 💖 #nature #presence #love #thunder

“I believe that all of these ways of describing reality, whether in terms of quantum fields, holographic principles, potency and the Breath of Life, the chakras and Tan Tian, prana and chi, all point to the same truth. The human system is organized within subtle quantum-level, bioelectric-biomagnetic fields that are expressions of a deeper Creative Intention at work.” -Franklyn Sills

Today’s session: Warm up 25 hollow rocks 6 Turkish Get-ups, 53lb 5 pull-ups 25 hollow rocks — This morning I was hoping for 10 get-ups but I got off to a slower start. This journey doesn’t have to be perfect, extreme, or overly complicated. A less than ideal workout today is still an amazing feeling of accomplishment and contributes to the power of the cumulative effect. Find movement that is enjoyable for you and do it consistently. Change will come. #madfamilystrength

This is something very difficult to write about and I don’t even know if I will be able. . . I understand, even before knowing what the words will be, that there is a possibility that they be misunderstood. I will write, none the less. . . I do not mean to impose an opinion or a belief of anything that is true. It is simply my hearts sense, the sense of my feeling, that I will share. . . I have a great admiration for those souls who pioneer for a different world, who maintain and supply the energetic streams of evolution with their passion and their voice, their hands and their heart. . . And yet, here I sit, happy to allow the world to be as it is. Even, at peace to see the world in decline. . . I know from my own experience that things need to be destroyed before they can be reborn. That the energy of destruction is a powerful and sometimes highly creative force of both annihilation and flowering. . . Perhaps I am happy to sit back and let things be as they are, because I have no idea of how things could be. . . But I also know of a world where time does not exist. Where anything we may impose on the moment stagnates rather than liberates. . . How would life breathe if we left it alone? How would it squeal and celebrate if we let it die? How would it give birth infront of our eyes if we loved it throughout its pain? How would it whisper softly in our ears the sercrets of love, if we waited for it to be born? . . I don’t have any answers. And I am always willing to learn. But not from what man knows. But from the power of the unknowable. From the spontaneous, rapturous, passionate cries of the world soul, where all misery, all destruction, all joy, all beauty is His and His alone. . . . . . . . . . . . 🙏🏻♥️🍃 . . . . . . .

Feed your soul. Stop pushing until exhaustion. Stop exhausting to the point that "rest" is shutting off your brain with Netflix. When time is yours, enjoy it. :) Feed your soul with presence. I am learning to slow down. To take time to read and write because it makes me happy. To enjoy a cup of coffee. To sit and listen to the birds. To be present. #wellnesspractice #tobepresent

I feel sweetly elated now, as I am in the middle of feeling a euphoric AHA! This morning I transmuted my programming around "work", my generational Germanic work ethic around the need to struggle, work hard and suffer! I now see how I created all of my jobs to learn and grow, and all areas of personal struggle pointed directly to that which I had to learn the most. I created it all...for me.

New Serve Conscious podcast episode is in bio link! Sherry Olander is a DEI consultant (Dynamic Emotional Integration), which is an emotional mastery system guaranteed to challenge every paradigm and stigma our culture has around what it means to feel - and that includes most spiritual and self-development sensibilities. This system spins your emotional life 180 degrees: every “unwanted” feeling you originally considered disruptive, weakening or even crippling becomes valuable. Anger, shame, sadness, all gets alchemized into useful information regarding your role and imperative in the present moment. Learn to master yourself, live mindfully and be an absolute service Jedi. We discuss: . The importance of understanding our own emotions in order to develop social competence. . Why the problem is not the emotion itself (or even too much of it), but its integration with the rest of the emotional consortium of the mind. . Self-inquiry techniques to channel emotions into a free-flowing state where they can have their highest value. . The perils of “positive” emotions in the absence of intelligence and maturity. . Boundary-setting as a key to dealing with "difficult people". . The value of "conscious complaining" (and not obnoxious and disempowered). . . . . . . #beingpresent   #meditationteacher #mindfullliving   #consciousliving   #meditationlife   #meditation #meditationtime #presentmoment #presence   #modernspirituality #service #mindfulnessmeditation #beingofservice   #mindfullifestyle   #hospitalitylife   #mindful #consciouslifestyle #mastery #selfmastery   #connection #mindfullife #innerstrength #innergrowth   #growthmindset #emotionalintelligence #overcomingneurosis #practicalspirituality #consciousconversations #podcastinterview #podcastepisode

Good morning, lovelies ✨ As we hide ourselves into the Beloved one He promises to overshadow us with His glorious presence. He removes our guilt and shame and replaces it with a heavenly inheritance. So often we dwell on the guilt of our mistakes, but Jesus has already paid the price for our total freedom. If thoughts arise in your life that bring forth feelings of condemnation... take them captive. Rest in the secret place. Find shelter in the most High God.... Because His word tells us that He will replace all of this shame and guilt with favor.... If you build your trust in Him He will break through for you. 🔐 PSALM 31 • • • #breakthrough #blog #christianblogger #favor #jesus #inheritance #freedom #glory #presence #love #loveofmysoul #missionsixthree #holyspirit #joy #truth #truthbomb

🔮”It can feel a bit achy and agonizing to realize that the beloved, in whatever form he or she may take, seems to have extraordinary powers to open the raw, tender, and naked dimensions of our being. But it is a sacred ache, oriented to the mystery. May we be kind to our partners in response to the inevitable disturbance that will arise as we make this journey together. Learning how to transmute the energy of conflict by way of skillful means and an open heart is essential and a secret doorway into the evolutionary potential that relationship offers”~Matt Licata 💖✨ #partnerships #presence #honoring #yin #healing #sacred #listen #supportive #conciousminds #love #evolvinglove #union #connections #compassion #intimacy #communication #respectful #beyou #bonds #authentic #expression #soulcontracts #grounding

During my morning journaling: 'I wanted to do this journal originally to expound upon the lessons and things that having a consistently changing body and energy and physical capacities have taught me through the years...but instead find myself pausing for the feeling of deep gratitude welling up throughout every pore and cell at this sweet moment of sitting on my faux fur rug, many of my morning chores done, amongst the beautiful peace and plant life of my apartment. This presence. This gratitude. This quiet and wonderful abundance. I'm so grateful. And evenso I know the gratitude alone will not secure that these things continue to be there for me. The gratitude alone will not guarantee good things or consistency. What the gratitude instead does is make every moment, regardless of what it gives, beautiful. What gratitude does is help me receive the goodness, whatever it is, around me right now. Help me take it in and feel it fully, instead of ignore the good things right now right here. That is gratitude. For that I come to it...I integrate it into my moments...I weave it into my days.' ☀️'I had some thoughts I wanted to share...so many things I wish to share...but only so much energy to communicate those things. So that energy instead of going to the stress of finding words for someone is going towards presence and gratitude and love for the beauty I create of and in my life. Now. Now. Now again. Every moment now.' #gratitude #journaling #morning #morningpeace #healthyhabits #presence #beingpresent #grateful #now #righthere #everymomentisnow #receivegoodness #beinggrateful

The Contemplative Life✨💫 . It is said that once we step upon the path of vipassanā, the only time we are not practicing is during sleep state. . Vipassanā is a living, breathing practice, applicable and appliable to each and every moment of our lives. . From standing in line at the grocery store, to intimate moments with loved ones, this practice does not separate us from life. It deepens our relationship to it. . It is the practice of intimacy. Of being here, in the unadulterated present. . And it is a gift I hope everyone has the opportunity to receive at some point upon their path. .

A painful looping appears in the vessel – a limiting core belief, painful emotion, a burning sensation, an urgent impulse to exit the realm of pure feeling. While operating in large part within shadowlands, they eventually emerge into conscious awareness. “Yes, I see you. You are welcome as a temporary visitor, but I will not merge with you. I will not forget what I am.” By way of primary experience – setting aside the discoveries and fantasies of others – illuminate that middle place where you come close, but not too close where you fuse or become flooded. Separate just a bit, seed the field with space, but not so much distance that you split and dissociate. Allow yourself to be touched. Penetrate into the creative core. The ancient pathways will always be there to greet us, archaic invitations to repress what has come, or to act it out. To spin to purge it from our embodied experience. To discharge it lest we fall apart, drown, and become engulfed by its overwhelming manifestations. Bear witness to these pathways, adaptive human responses to the trauma of dysregulating thought and unbearable feeling. The understandable responses of a tender developing little one, lifesaving primitive forms of self-compassion, aching now to be updated and reorganized. But here we are now, no longer lodged in the “there and then,” but alive in the ripened “here and now,” with capacities once not available. With a heart and nervous system that long to reach into the mystery and to re-encode the system. It is an act of love to enter the unknown middle as an archaeologist of soul, an alchemist of the inner landscape, and to open a portal into wisdom-essence. Yes, it will take courage and an undying love of the truth to step inside and facilitate the sacred return. But if not you and me, and us together, how will love find its way here? If we do not tend to the visitors with a fiery care and compassion, we will locate their emanations into the relational field in less-than-conscious ways, thereby generating additional suffering for ourselves and others. Let us turn to them now. Art credit: Wildflower dream by Krista Marleena

Another gorgeous teacher training weekend! Our teachers understand the WHY behind the HOW and learn the art of cultivating energetic ambiance. Here, they taught a full class to a partner, ‘tucked them into’ Savasana, and now you see the gentle emerging into a meditation position for the conclusion of class. But there is a purpose for the music choice. There is a purpose for each prop. There is a purpose for each word and how it is conveyed. Yoga is sacred and we honor the spiritual. Be Nourished.

🤗Joy🤗 What are 3 small things that bring you joy?? 🦋 🦋 🦋 Last year I started listening to the podcast @heretothrivepodcast which was one of the original influences I followed when I started my journey to be better. @kate.snowise has beautiful, helpful, realistic tips and messages and I recommend everyone check out her page and her podcast @heretothrivepodcast . One of the main points that Kate emphasizes is to incorporate more joy in our day to day. The more we experience small things that bring a smile to our face and our heart, the better our overall day will be. Instead of moving through the day like a robot, we can now stop and appreciate these small moments of joy and it can really impact us positively. 🌻 🌻 🌻 Similar to Kate, waking up to, or coming home to a fresh bouquet of flowers is one small thing that brings a smile to my face. I literally stop what I’m doing and bury my face in them to take one big inhale, which always makes me feel instantly better, even if just a little bit. Now for me it’s a no brainer to prioritize having something around that stops me in my tracks, brings me into the present moment and fills me with joy. 🌲 🌲 🌲 Your small act of joy can be anything from taking a short walk outside on your lunch break, to wearing your favorite perfume, or even calling an old friend. If you’re not quite sure how to get started, head to the @heretothrivepodcast website and Kate has some wonderful free resources to help you dig deep and make lists of some things that bring you joy. Journaling out a list of what warms your heart is a great first start to make this process more real and tangible. Try it for a week and see if you find a difference in how your day is going, or how you feel at the end of the week. If you see positive change, then you now have steps you can prioritize to make each week a little better than the one before 😍

If your everyday practice is to open to your emotions, to all the people you meet, to all the situations you encounter, without closing down, trusting that you can do that—then that will take you as far as you can go. And then you’ll understand all the teachings that anyone has ever taught. ~Pena Chödrön🙏🏻 • Really the practice and the teachings are in living & being open to it all. This one ⬆️ constantly reminds me of this when I’ve moved away from presence & heart-centered living.💗 • How do you return? Who helps you in this journey? My response in comments.

By embodying gratitude for a week, we practiced being deeply present with it- as practicing sacred pause may have shown you, our senses are directly connected to presence. And now through practicing the sacred pause in moments when we are not feeling particularly grateful, we are starting to bring that same practice to the other side of the coin. So, day 19 if #journeywithgratitude is about getting clear on the connection. What is the relationship between presence and gratitude? Can we be grateful when we are not present? Or are the two interwoven? 💚 . . #wildsacredjourney #journeywithgratitude #yogaoffthemat #heartcenteredbusiness #energyhealer #grateful #gratitude #practice #community #connection #nomadentrepreneur #loveisthemedicine #femaleentrepreneur #soulfulbusiness #deeplistening #embodiment #sacredpause #mindfulness #presence #inwardjourney

Step up to your edge 🌿 Throughout this lifetime people will underestimate you, say unkind things and break you down. Do not allow the words or the actions of others to define you. Do not allow life’s circumstances to control you. When life turns you upside down how are you going to show up? You owe it to yourself to believe that anything is possible. Never give up on your goals, your dreams and yourself no matter how ambitious or how small the feat. Do not allow others to shape you into someone smaller than you are. When we step up to our edge we make room for growth. When life creates uncertainty, instability and fear, how will you show up for yourself? In yoga this is challenged through remaining in a pose when all you want to do is quit, just as in yoga the pain, the discomfort and the uncertainty will pass. How can you sit through the discomfort on your mat and in your life? Go through this life for YOU, for in the end you are the only person you have. Do not compromise your own growth by giving pieces of yourself away for the happiness of another. We, ourselves need our love the most, remember that and never feel selfish for choosing yourself first. Find a way to challenge yourself mentally and physically daily. Consistently take yourself to your edge and watch the rest of your life continue to fall into place. Be grateful for the lessons and the growth that life carries with it. Do not fear what you do not know, embrace it ✨————————————————-———————— #yoga #yogappse #childspose #yogadelphia #philly #phillyyoga #vinyasa #vinyasaflow #poweryoga #hotyoga #vinyasavanna #philadelphia #lululemon #hotboxyoga

I shared a post in my story from @peacefulmindpeacefullife and @peaceful_barb that made me think about the difference between nice and kind. 🦋 Would you rather be described as nice or kind.? * * I was taught to be nice, to have good manners and be “a good girl.” But, I was always the one who wanted to speak up against injustice (like to the girl in my 10th grade friend group who ditched us during the week for the cool kids and then wanted to hang with us in weekends when she wasn’t invited to the cool kids parties.) Speaking up didn’t feel nice, nice girls didn’t speak their mind. 🦋 * * As I built my career, I learned that speaking up worked well for me. I am the one who says what others are afraid to. I worked in a culture of nice and I usually was the one who would speak up. But the opposite of nice shouldn’t be brave. Brave words shouldn’t bite, they should be kind. 🦋 * I’m learning that I don’t have to fight every battle, but I can choose them with kindness and compassion. I’m learning to speak up with kindness, with a positive outcome in mind for all parties. My goal is always a relationship, never a transaction. Even when people are dicks to me on social media, I try to lean in to kindness. Even when I want to rely on my easier to find bitchiness (also, the opposite of nice). 🦋 can you relate? Tell me about it in comments. Or DM me! * * #kindness #nice #kind #presence #leadership #cannabiscommunity #meditation #intuitivehealing #cannabisforwellness #wellbeing #wellness #happiness #flow #worklifeflow #mindfulness #intention #intentionalconsumption

We are all derived from the same consciousness. Some are more awakened and allow it to flow through themselves, more readily into the world of form. Others may identify so heavily with form, that ego drives them instead. Consciousness is meant to flow through us. When we've provided the disservice of identifying wholly with the world of form, without the recognition and embrace of our very essence, we begin to perceive the world in a fragmented way. As if the painful and negative workings of the ego are actually ourselves. In reality, we are our essence which connects us all. We derive from it. Every last one of us. -Jmic #commonality #fromwithin #presence #briscoeranch

Feelings are literally just information. We are taught that some quality as being "bad" and they are usually related to sadness or anger, and others we celebrate, like happiness and joy. You are a brilliant being with a range of emotions and feelings that are going to inform you on your life. Those feelings are going to tell you to move "towards" some things and people, and "away" from other things and people. Your emotions will tell you when you need to pay attention, when you don't feel safe or secure. They will tell you when you feel wronged, misunderstood or hurt. They will ask you to say NO and to get the hell out of somewhere and to stand up for yourself, your truth and your value. • You need all of your sensitivity. You need all of your feelings. You need to ask your feelings, "what are you here to tell me? What are you asking of me?" And then listen and execute because that's also your intuition and your inner child asking to be heard. When will you finally listen? #createthelove #repost #word #instagood #inspiration #presence #love #selfcare #awareness

Well a Happy Hump day to you all!⠀ 🌞⠀ I mean...really. This is the shizz that really excites me. I’ve been working on my patterns of procrastination this month. It just cracks me up when I begin to notice all the places I am resistant to that change. One thing I’ve learned in life: wisdom includes conscious lived experiences. So, in other words, practice your butt off.⠀ 🌞⠀ Having said all that, I want to give you an example from my life that may show you what I mean. This morning I became aware that the last few days I’ve even been “procrastinating” my morning routine of FS journaling, Oracle cards, and posting. I’ve been consistent as hell for months in this process. Why is this happening now? Because this habitual thinking/behavior is so entrenched, my mind is doing what it does, and resists. This. Is. The. Process.⠀ 🌞⠀ This morning, I pulled the Beaver card from the medicine deck. It always astounds me how many messages arise for me in daily life that give me the opportunity to practice the mindset and behavior I want from myself. ⠀ 🌞⠀ The Beaver is a builder. A doer. When the Beaver appears it’s a time of purposeful and directed activity, not contemplation or PROCRASTINATION. 😁 It’s best to balance activities with socialization with friends and family. I’m aware I’ve been feeling like I haven’t been balancing well...contributing to my resistance of the “work”. Let my actions be focused and intentional. Be especially aware of wasting time, energy, and resources on unimportant matters. When there is a job to be done I need to get to it and STAY with it until it’s done. 🌞 This I know to be true for me: I will continue to encounter situations and opportunities until I learn the lesson. I’m fully supported by the Universe. I am here on IG to show others that we are all on this human journey. I share my personal experience (which also includes my clinical experience) with the intention that we learn from each other. I am willing to be vulnerable, and allow you all to see my imperfections and struggles, in an effort to let you know...YOU are NOT alone. 🌞 May we be willing to see the opportunities for growth. May we practice daily.💞🙏🏻
