Motivation Monday: as said by my high school’s football coach (who now coaches in the NFL) .... Words are great. But unless you commit to them, they are meaningless. Stop talking. Just Start! ... What are you committing to this week? ... #mondaymotivation#mantra#riseandgrind#hustle#yougotthis
"A serious devotee is constantly learning. Why?": Since the person is so serious, he or she wants to take advantage of every single moment to grow and advance more. Not only can we learn from our guru, we can even learn from the insect, as did the avadhuta brahmana. Such personalities learn from the seemingly most insignificant entities. They are constantly learning because they see every opportunity as a chance to grow and benefit. A neophyte, on the other hand, is also given so many chances to accelerate, but he or she is not able to use them. Such people see but do not see: pasyann api na pasyati (Srimad-Bhagavatam 2.1.4). The opportunity is there, but they still do not see. They have a chance to hear, but they still do not hear. Even if Krishna came Himself, they would not be able to honor Him in a deep way. Therefore, Sril Bhaktisiddhanta explains the position of a jagad-guru or a highly advanced pure devotee. He knows that everyone is his spiritual master. If a person is not ready to constantly learn, he is not very serious or advanced.

Motivation to take action and do is one of the biggest challenges for the mind. The brain is wired to want to go in the direction of least resistance and rewiring takes A LOT of practice talking myself out of the stories that keep me small. “Doing”takes over my being and with that I forget to “be” and drop into my heart. I’ve been in school, attending workshops, acquiring certifications and although I am grateful that I get to do all of that, I leave very little time to sit with the new knowledge I now know that I didn’t know. It doesn’t always stick while I’m in it if that makes sense. Little bits and pieces make their way back and I’ve been stating more in my group fitness classes or sharing when my heart feels called to express. I’ve been receiving questions about self-love from people here on IG and in real life on how I “did” it. How do I love myself? For me, I motivate myself with positive self talk and I work on quieting the. noise by listening more. I read, listen to audio books, move my body, be in community, and do my best to stretch. My best isn’t always going to be great. I want to be the best daughter to my parents because they deserve it. I want to be a perfect sister because my brother deserves it. A better friend to everyone because they deserve it. A better teacher to my students because they deserve it. Does this sound familiar to you? No one is asking me to be any of these perfect things except for me. I learn from making mistakes, unintentionally hurting people, and allowing feedback without letting my pride get in the way. The only way out is through and for me to not choose the path of least resistance I get to keep inviting the difficult conversations, not feel shame for what I have, compare myself to people, and raising awareness to what is my truth, and not “do” to be all these things so I have more freedom from my mind. Sometimes it feels forced because it is. That’s
So, with the beginning of the school year feeling like a fresh start, I decided it would be a great time to come up with a word of the week to use kind of like a mantra or sacred word. I text it out to the family with zero expectation that they will pay any attention to it, but I’m hoping maybe we will all take a minute to notice our word in action in our lives. Last week’s word was gracious. I tried to be more gracious in my dealings with others and I looked for ways they were gracious with me. This week’s word is resilient. How can we overcome the obstacles or bounce back after disappointment? Always something I need to practice. What are some words you ponder that I could add to my list?
Daily Intention... PROSPERITY - Each of us came here to discover the journey of PROSPERITY. Now often, when we hear this word, we think of physical and tangible things, or of money and financial wealth. - PROSPERITY can be all of those things, but it is so much more. You and I have witnessed the monetary wealth of others, yet have also observed that their lives may appear void of spiritual substance. - Each of us came here to be prosperous in love and joy; to be spiritually rich within our souls, knowing that we are guided and cared for beyond what we see with our eyes. - We came here for the journey of discovery; to see the beauty of all that is around us and of that which we can create and share with the world. - Each of us may define PROSPERITY a bit differently, because our journeys are unique, but the commonalities encompass an abundance of love, joy, peace, grace, sharing, compassion, and kindness. - Let us open our hearts to the belief that our path is meant to be one of PROSPERITY in all things. - Be thy Light... - Image captured by Morguefile Photo. 💫 🌟 💫 - * BE THY LIGHT paperback located @ Amazon. * BE THY LIGHT E-Book located @ Kindle and I-Books. * 365 INTENTIONS TO INSPIRE App located @ Android, Apple and Amazon.
Ничего в жизни не происходит просто так 💖 Новый опыт, новые практики подарили мне переоценку ценностей. В жизни были периоды, когда за годы я могла не проживать и не понимать того, что ощутила за неделю интенсивных тренингов. На холотропном дыхании я прочувствовала себя в перинатальном периоде, заново родилась, встретилась со своим родом, обрела божественную энергию, ощутила состояние «когда тебя нет в нашем мире»... все это сопровождалось яркими эмоциями и переживаниями😓 Все практики происходят в трезвом уме, без воздействия каких-либо запрещённых препаратов. Погружалась в глубокие медитации с помощью звука: шаманского пения, диджериду, поющих чаш, варгана... Прокачивала чакры, пробуждала Кундалини... Познакомилась глубже с Тантрой 🖤 с даосскими сексуальными практиками. Снимала блоки. Пела мантры 📿 И многое другое, о чем не напишешь в двух словах. Такие фесты подходят для новичков. Бывает есть тяга к духовному и не знаешь с чего начать... До недавнего времени было ощущение, что не хватает ярких эмоций, меня поглотила рутина, жизнь стала скучноватой 🤪 мне хотелось
🌿Happy Monday! 🌈 Do you ever think big picture, and wonder how many Monday’s we live through? Each week, each month, year after year. Although we can’t be sure of the number, and the amount of days we have left, it’s important to realize that at ANY time you can create change. It might be something very small, or gaining courage to dramatically change a situation you are in. Never allow yourself to feel stuck in anything, especially stuck in a mindset, as you are supported and loved by the universe. More importantly you already have the strength within YOU! Share with somebody who needs this ♥️ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #believeinyourself#youareloved#youareworthy#youareimportant#youcandoit#mantra#soul#love#spirituality#love#enlightenment#riseup#newweek
