Il migliore antidoto all’ansia è la gratitudine. Prova a fare un elenco di almeno 10 cose per cui ringraziare. Oppure prova ogni giorno, verso sera, a scrivere su un diario le tre cose della giornata trascorsa per cui sei più grato. Allenando in questo modo  il “muscolo” della gratitudine, ti accorgerai ben presto di non vivere in solitudine in balia dell’ignoto o di forze maligne, inesorabilmente condannato ad ansie e paure, ma di essere inserito in una “rete” di supporto benevola e attenta, che ti ha sempre fornito tutto ciò di cui avevi bisogno; anzi, di più.  Provaci!  #natiperesserevivi #gratitudine #trueself #selfhealers #autoguarigione #mindfulness #meditazione
transmute - transitive verb⁣ 1 : to change or alter in form, appearance, or nature and especially to a higher form.⁣ ⁣ it was never about them, anyways. it was always about you learning what it feels like to be in your power. revenge keeps the focus on them. transmutation keeps the focus on you. when the focus is on you, that’s where the magic happens. you stepping into the Light is what takes care of the darkness. as MLK says, “darkness cannot drive out darkness: only Light can do that. hate cannot drive out hate, only Love can do that.” stay here, friends. stay here.

to elaborate on the ending of my previous share (in comments on previous post) ••• there are multiple of you, but also a select few that pop into my mind space on the regular, when i am faced with the challenges of life: personal work + growth, doing that work while parenting, modeling these rituals to my children (man i was so on my self care rituals when i embarked on fam blending and have all but abandoned my practice since), responding to my children peacefully even when i am internally losing it- reminding myself i don’t have to lose it because it’s been there all along, handling *intense* almost 8yo emotions, and just generally trudging through this all because while it’s beautiful, and so rewarding, it’s also HARD. it’s hard to change patterns and habits!!!! that’s why most of us walkin around on autopilot even if it does not serve us. so a big heartfelt thank you to @mama.blooming + @allseasonsblue + @mandimoonlight for sharing in this work alongside me ~ some of you are nearer geographically than others but you all inspire me to press on, and i absolutely adore feeling like we are doing this work together, even across distances. i love you all deeply + i see your dedication to growth! thank you 🤲🏼 AND to @the.holistic.psychologist for all of the work she does + info she shares, absolutely life changing. ILYSM ladies 💕 it’s work, but when we put it in, we reap immense rewards. it is not linear, it does not happen overnight. but if like this video, you wait for it, you too will burst out of your current skin and sow seeds of happiness + awareness to those around you 🥰 #lifeandtimesofamama #mamamusings #selfhealers #youcangrowtoo
I absolutely love Maria Popova’s twist on the popular quote by Maya Angelou. . For too many years I struggled with the narrative that a significant person in my life tried to impose on me. I think we all do from time to time.  These words are a great reminder💜 . . . .  #selflovematters #selflovethreads #selflovematters #selfcarequotes #selfforgiveness#selfcareeveryday #selflovefirst #selfhealers #letgoofthepast #selfcareeveryday#selfcareeveryday#selflovefirst #selfcareeveryday#selflovefirst #selflovejourney#selfcarethreads #selfcaresunday #selfawareness #divinefeminine #vulnerability #knowyourworth #selfcare #noshame
✨How did I start my healing journey?✨⁣ ⁣ Is something I’ve been asked recently and wasn’t quite certain how to respond.⁣ ⁣ 📚 Initially about 8 years ago I started to obsess over self improvement and would consume books, podcasts, YouTube videos. It slowly became a habit to consume content like this each day.⁣ ⁣ 🍷 I also became conscious to how I was living and removed anything unhealthy. Whether that be people, alcohol , substances or places.⁣ ⁣ 👶 What made the biggest shift in me was birthing my daughters and I truly believe I had a spiritual awakening when i birthed my second daughter. I can’t explain the peace, serenity and stillness that occurred in that birthing room when she entered the world but I do know it shifted so much in me and changed me.⁣ ⁣ 💫I woke up. I became so conscious. Initially with parenting I would journal daily observations which helped me become more aware. I’d write down the good, the bad, the ugly (yes those days when two kids triggered me) then I’d try to delve deeper to understand why.⁣ ⁣ ✨Every day I would listen to podcasts - and would clock up hours daily either listening to audible books or reading. (This slowly began starting changing my brain patterns and my daily habits).⁣ ⁣ ✨I then started seeking out additional learning. I would reach out to complete strangers who then would become friends and provide me with insights which would take me down new paths. I trained in NLP. I was then led to me conscious parenting training course. I didn’t do anything other than learn. I didn’t want to do anything else.⁣ ⁣ ✨I started to reframe how I was looking at things. Understanding my job as a mother is the most important one I could have. I no longer wanted to chase success like others. A job with an attractive salary didn’t mean anything to me. Material possessions didn’t mean anything to me. Anything outside of me didn’t matter. And I just became so focused on the

September’s virtual breathwork group is your opportunity for a tune-up, an emotional detox...and this month, we’ll be focusing on authority and the inner critic (sign up via the link in my bio). . We’ll breath to make more room for and familiarize ourselves with the way our own inner authority/ intuition FEELS like in our bodies. And with the breath, practice holding space for and trusting those sensations so we can use them to confidently navigate our own lives. . Breathwork is always first and foremost about developing a deeper and more loving relationship with yourself. It’s about establishing the body as a safe place to hold, stay present for, and learn from big emotions and sensations. It’s always a beginner level, and it’s always going to connect you back to yourself, your center. . If you show up and breath, something will move for you, something will shift. . Sign up for September’s new moon virtual breathwork group via the link in my bio! Can’t wait to breath with you!💚
#anxietyresponse. As we exhale we calm our nervous system using our vagal nerve. To build upon that principle we can train our bodies, and minds to be less prone to activation. We do this by exhaling with a noise. The noise is relatively specific, it’s a long 'vroooom' noise. This vibration when it effects your nervous system it acts to release held and latent stress within your vagal nerve. So when you are feeling stressed, or if you want to help yourself calm down, utilise your voice and your breath to calm down using the "VROOOM”. Try it. Vroom right now.  #collectivehealing #collectivetrauma#racialtrauma #relationships #therapy#toxicrelationships#relationshiptherapy #stereotypes#stereotypethreat #attachment#healing #attachmenttherapy#attachmentstyles #therapytools#attachmenttheory#relationshipquotes #selflove#anxiousattachment #policebrutality#attachmentdisorder#attachmenttrauma #selfhealers#selfcare #selfhelp #recoverycoach #medicineformoderntimes
Moving Meditation 🌙 . Moving meditation is such a powerful healing tool to help us release stored emotions. Unlike traditional seated meditation it takes that release one step further by asking you to let go if the ego and surrender to the rhythms and ecstasies of movement. . We are emotional creatures, and we were born to express emotions freely and openly. Somewhere along the way, however, many of us learned to repress emotions, especially those deemed “negative,” in order to fit in, earn love, and be accepted 🙄 . The unresolved emotions get trapped in our body. Where they build and fester, draining our energy, leading to burnout, emotional imbalance, and eventually disease. When we chronically repress emotions, we create toxicity in our body, mind, and heart.❤ . The challenge is to recognise the emotion and feel it in your body. We have to feel it to heal it. We have to fully experience the emotion in order to process and integrate it into our experience. . Emotions need to be expressed to be processed. The goal is to move the energy of emotion through and out the body so we can let it go.🙏🏼 . Ask yourself this: What does this  emotion you just connected with need from you? What do you need in this moment? Maybe you feel the need to cry, scream into a pillow, go for a swim, walk or run, hit a punching bag, do some gardening, tapping, yoga or paint your feelings out, dance it out or simply breathe deeply while facing the sun—whatever feels cathartic in that moment, do it. 🤗 . You will free the poisonous emotion that you carried within yourself, and free yourself from its shackles. 🖐🏻 . Also, screw what people think. Wear, move and listen to whatever the hell you want! 😘
Something I haven’t talked about in a hot second: self-love. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m going to be super straight up and say I have not felt the best about myself lately. I’ve had some major bad body image days and all-around life anxiety (probably has something to do with starting my masters degree in a week yikes). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ That’s not going to stop me from doing what I can every single day to make myself feel a little better. For me, it has been spending time and chatting with my best friends and people closest to me. 💕⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Just because it’s called self-love doesn’t mean you aren’t allowed to surround yourself with people who lift you up. Sometimes you might just need a boost! 😊⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’d love to know what you do when you need a self-love boost 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #liveasyou
Yes. I have been feeling all of this the past few weeks. Major changes and uncomfortable times, it’s time to grow. #higherself #grattitude #growth #selflove #woke #levelup #embracethesuck💪🏻 #yougotthis #selfhealers #flowingthroughlife #embracechange
When we see the potential in the craggy, the old, the unfinished, and the forgotten spaces — we see what it means to be actively possible. x.
🇬🇧🇫🇷 🔻 🏋🏻‍♀️ English in comments! Mon corps me prouve aujourd’hui à quel point ma tête avait tort sur lui. Ce n’est pas parce que je ne fais plus de sport pendant quelques semaines/mois (ou très peu) que je perds soudainement tous mes muscles. Ce n’est pas parce que je ne contrôle pas ce que je mange, que je prends soudainement 15 kilos. Non. Mon corps a sûrement changé ce mois ci, mais beaucoup moins que mes démons auraient cru. Je me sens toujours aussi bien dans ce corps imparfait, alors que je n’ai plus de routine sportive, ni alimentaire, j’écoute simplement mes envies, et profite de mes vacances. Ce qui fait prendre du poids, c’est toutes les histoires qu’on se raconte. C’est quand on se juge. Quand on se blâme. Quand on culpabilise. Quand on se restreint. C’est quand on considère la nourriture comme la seule solution à notre problème et à notre mal être. Et qu’on la voit aussi, à contrario, comme notre ennemie. Or, plus on mange de façon impulsive et abusive (tout en se jugeant), plus on se sent mal, plus on se rajoute un autre problème, et le cercle vicieux continue. C’est en connaissant la source de notre mal être qu’on se sort des troubles alimentaires. C’est en réalisant à quel point les histoires qu’on se créer dans notre tête sont fausses et courent à notre perte. C’est en changeant nos croyances, en soignant nos blessures, et en créant de nouvelles histoires remplies d’amour et de compassion envers nous meme que l’on peut guérir. Si je peux le faire, tu peux le faire aussi. ❤️ Je ne suis pas guérie à 100%, mais je ne me suis jamais sentie aussi bien dans mon corps et dans ma tête que maintenant, en 6 ans de troubles alimentaires! Parce que j’ai changé ma façon de voir ma maladie, mon corps, la nourriture, le sport, ma valeur en tant que personne, et je me suis demandé qui je voulais être. C’est LÀ que j’ai pu faire la différence. C’est en
Aura readings with @_wanderkid 🌈✨💕
I know it’s long, but read it anyway. Actually, I won’t even caption much just so there’s no excuse ;). Who’s a meaning maker? Who pauses to be with the emotion and see what it brings forward. It doesn’t mean that an emotion doesn’t mean anything, this is just about being with it and allowing it to teach. Too often we jump to meaning making because we have an expectation that when something ends we ought to only experience neutrality. That’s just not the case, friends. Who has noticed this in their own lives? #mindfulmft  ________ Reminders: 1.

Grief is a crazy ride. It shows up in unexpected spaces and in unexpected times. Today I am thankful for the grief, the sadness, the tears. It is allowing me to remember to joy, the laughter, the fun. So I am spending time today honoring the grief and remember the happiness that is right in front of me. .  #sundayvibes #griefjourney  #selfhealers #honorthegrief #gratitudequotes #brenebrownquotes #takemebacktotheocean

You come to love not by finding the right person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly. -Sam Keen⁣ ⁣ In the moments when you realize the other person’s efforts and “imperfections” are actually —completely + beautifully perfect. When the “imperfections” are just as they should be. ✨Recognizing that their struggles can turn into strengths. ✨⁣ ⁣ There is beauty in the human process + in the human struggle. 🌱⁣ ⁣
You will never find clarity if you don’t have the right view. 🤔 It’s so easy to customize our lens to the things we want to see but it takes bravery to find the view of the truth. It’s easy to adopt the views of everyone else. It’s easy to settle for a shitty view on life. Eventually that shitty view becomes your truth and all you know is how to lead a shitty life. Instead of exploring other views on life, my twenties was all about thinking I had the best view. I thought the only view that mattered was mine until I had kids and I was forced to find better points of view on life. I was forced to dig deep and explore new views on how I wanted to live my life. Digging deep came with a lot of pain and challenges. Coming out on the other end I’m realizing how many people keep the same old shitty views on life and never change. They never change their shitty point of view because exploring for new viewpoints is too risky and dangerous. You can’t force anybody to change their viewpoints, you have to change your own. #selftalk
Credit to from @the.holistic.psychologist (@get_regrann) -  My spiritual awakening opened me to this truth: I have created almost all of my own suffering. The events I’ve faced were minor compared to the stories created in my mind. When I thought it was other people, it was really my ego. My unhealed past. My conditioning that kept me in a mental prison I honestly didn’t know existed.  The ego doesn’t want us to understand how much we cause our own suffering. It likes to externalize. It likes us to project. It likes us to blame and rationalize our behavior.  The ego will keep you in this space your entire life until you make a conscious choice to wake up from it. Or, if you’re like me, the pain of life as you know it is so unbearable you have no choice but to wake up.  The matrix is in the mind. It’s where all of your false limitations call home. It’s where all of your beliefs you didn’t consciously choose drive your behavior.  What are you working to release? #selfhealers #regrann
Credit to from @the.holistic.psychologist (@get_regrann) - - Meditation is not a zen experience. Far from it! - There’s a misunderstanding that meditation clears the mind. Which is why so many people think they’re doing it ‘wrong.’ - Mediation is a practice of observing thoughts. It’s uncomfortable. We’re not used to sitting with our thoughts and the emotions they bring up. - This is why so many things run through your mind like checking your phone, a conversation you had yesterday, or what you’ll have for dinner. This is ALWAYS happening. The monkey mind never stops. But now you are observing rather than reacting to every single thought. - In my opinion, meditation is one of life’s most important practices. It’s something I do every day, but we also need to talk about how it’s not always a peaceful experience. You are teaching yourself to sit with everything that comes up. And a lot of what comes up is very painful and frustrating. - For beginners: 1. Start with 3 minutes do not go beyond that. 2. Do it every single day. Consistency re-wires the pathway of the brain to be comfortable with watching thoughts. 3. Realize that some days you’ll ease right into it and other days the mind will tantrum. - Do you meditate? #selfhealers - #meditate #meditation #mindbody #mindfulness #holistichealth #regrann
My self-imposed #summerofselfcare is coming to a close.  I made a lot of progress in my #selfhealing and I have a pretty good idea of my next #selfcare Steps.  I developed #gratitude And today I am grateful for fresh beginnings.  For mornings and Monday’s, for new weeks and New Years and even new decades soon!  I have a funny joke that I always kind of say sarcastically when people are like “phew tough day” and I’m like “phew rough decade”  I have no idea where my posts come from 🤷‍♀️ whatever.  Today I felt like sharing my : Trade offs that have paid off 🌻 From tiny to huge -Apple cider vinegar instead of balsamic vinegar. -Himalayan pink salt instead of table salt. -Choosing solitude over toxic companionship -Brutal honest self reflection and taking responsibility over blaming others -Plants I grow from (cannabis to oregano) over prescription drugs -self discipline instead of apathy -lime water instead of water -homemade toothpaste (so many variations) over store bought -DIY instead of turning to an “expert” -Sweet potatoes over white potatoes -Expressing myself instead of being silent and feeling invisible -growing some food (self reliance) instead of all store bought -self respect and self compassion over self disgust -Breathing without thinking instead of overthinking -future self journaling instead of future self worrying -alternate nostril breathing over anxiety -self care toolbox instead of a beer -developing a morning routine instead of feeling lost -electrolytes instead of plain water -saying no instead of yes - Saying yes instead of no (lol) - Admitting I have active ptsd instead pretending I don’t - Showing vulnerability instead of masking - Walking with my head up instead of looking down at my feet - Sticking to it instead of giving up - Self education over self entertainment -audio books and books instead of all music and fluff Posting thoughts and pictures even though it’s scary  That second picture is a pretty
Credit to from @the.holistic.psychologist (@get_regrann) -  I wrote a post this morning on an incident I had on a walk with a driver. I deleted the post for a few reasons: 1. It’s difficult to explain a traffic incident. I was not clear enough with my description. 2. Some people thought I was driving- I was walking (I’m city folk) 3. Other people thought this was a life or death incident. It was on a quiet street in fairmount, Philadelphia.  4. There is confusion about what I mean about seeing someone as a “child.” This does NOT mean “childish” behavior. It means witnessing their inner child. Their unhealed emotional wounds. It is a lens that one can only have through witnessing their own inner child. It is not a judgement. I am 3 days off of an inner child melt down with my partner 🤷🏻‍♀️ When practiced, it actually frees us from judgment and emotional reactivity.  I took out this part of the post that I wanted to get across and created this. My example shadowed the message. We are all wounded children. We’re all wrapped so tightly in our conditioning. To create a future self, we must go to the past and heal that child. The child who wasn’t fully expressed. Who wasn’t seen, heard, and validated.  I will posting an exercise for this tonight and have some YouTube videos coming. Stay tuned! #selfhealers #regrann
Credit to from @the.holistic.psychologist (@get_regrann) -  Power is a misunderstood concept in our society.  We falsely believe that power comes from external sources: money, fame, or titles/positions. These things give temporary, fleeting power, but the power is not internal. When power is tied to external sources, a person becomes deeply insecure. In most cases, it was the insecurity to drove them to this false power. This is why we see so many people abuse their power and influence. Ironically the lack of inner power only amplifies as they gain more external power.  True power is internal. It’s the mastering of attention. Attention is the single greatest asset we have. Where we place it, creates energy. The focus of our attention manifests physically. The ability to consciously choose where we place our attention shifts us from reacting to the ability to respond. In short it’s leaving habit for choice. Understanding that not everything requires your attention or your response is confidence.  If we’re unconscious, we can’t focus our attention. We aren’t even aware that we have choice. Sometimes this is labeled as “ADD.” We react to every single thing that comes into our environment. That news story, that text message, the latest cultural drama. We’re placing our energy on anything that we see. After time we feel shameful. We label ourselves lazy, or unmotivated. The reality is we haven’t practiced focusing our attention.  The 3 most powerful tools I’ve found for mastering attention are: meditation, fitness, and journaling. Each of these things bring up mental resistance. Almost everyone I work with labels mental resistance as negative. Mental resistance is actually positive. It only comes up when you leave the subconscious. Every single time you get past this mental resistance you’ve worked your attention muscle. The more practice, the stronger the muscle. With time and commitment this will shift every aspect of your life. This is mental
Credit to from @the.holistic.psychologist (@get_regrann) -  When I was trying to keep boundaries with family members, I’d get frustrated. They would ignore my boundaries and I would feel upset, or disappointed. I’d blame them for ‘making me’ feel the way I did. Then I’d sit with my partner and vent. I’d complain about them ‘putting me in this position.’ I’d allow myself to create a story that they were somehow driving my behavior and forcing me to carry emotions.  The objective reality was they were behaving like they always did. The way they’ve been functioning for decades. And  was coming to them with a new way of existing. A way of existing they didn’t understand. They weren’t doing anything ‘to’ me. It was me who was buying into the belief that it had something to do with me. Or that their behavior somehow took away my choice. It did not.  After a few months I came to see what I couldn’t before: I am  responsible for my behavior. How I respond is a choice that hasn’t been forced on me. In ways, I received an emotional payoff from their chaos. It was familiar. And my stories only served to keep me caught up in that chaos I called home.  I was scared. I was confused about setting boundaries. My subconscious conditioning was creating a lot of doubt within me. And rather than allowing myself feel and accept this, I went to blame. Because blame is easier. Always.  I found that space of radical honesty. From radical honesty I found accountability. Accountability is empowerment. Over time, blame doesn’t even come into the mind because the ego no longer needs that form of protection.  Releasing blame is healing #selfhealers #regrann
