Until we have met the monsters in ourselves, we will keep trying to slay them in the outer world. For all darkness in the world stems from the darkness in the heart. And it is where we must do our work. .................................................... by joann

Yamas are instructions for living well... instead of being strict rules, they invite us to decide for ourselves the specific applications to how we live. “Ahimsa” is an important consideration when we examine our habits in relationship to other people. We want to cultivate compassion and love for when we interact with others. But further, we want to think about the impacts that our words, actions, and purchases have on other beings. #ahimsa #yoga #yamas #nonviolence by Eggnog

The past few days have been extremely overwhelming for me. As a budding entrepreneur it seems I have a never ending to-do list. I have found recently that my OWN self care has been slipping. And that makes me feel guilty and out of integrity. Because I teach self care. I preach the benefits of it. I need to remind myself from time to time to listen to my own advice. . Those of us who are super sensitive empaths tend to be very outward focused. We are always scanning our environment feeling into peoples moods and energies. We are also natural born people pleasers. We LOVE to help other. Which is a beautiful thing. But it can become harmful to us when we feel guilty saying no. We feel if we say no to someone or an event or project that we are letting someone down disappointing them or worse- making them angry. We often feel that their reaction is our responsibility. And so we put ourselves last time and time again. We say yes over and over until we are completely drained exhausted and resentful. . But no is NOT A BAD WORD. No is a self-loving self-respecting responsible mature and often times kind word. We have to start asking ourselves why we always fall to the end of the line. Why we are so worried about disappointing others- but what about disappointing ourselves? I often ask my clients who are struggling to say no what would you say to a friend in this situation. Because the answer is almost always that the friend should stand up for and care for her energetic needs. So then why is it that YOU do not deserve the same is my next question. . You deserve to say no. You deserve to stand up and to take care of you. You are important and needed in this world. But if you dont give yourself the love you so freely give to others you will be stuck in a cycle of overwhelm turmoil and exhaustion. . Join me on January 26th for a potent conversation on how to care for yourself as a sensitive soul in this world. This powerful workshop is FREE and will ignite you on your path to re-connecting to the beautiful truth of who you are and to working on setting boundaries and practicing the magical word no. .

Our relationships are mirrors of ourselves. If we are emotionally, mentally, or spiritually unhealthy, our relationships become reflections of our wounds. Our partners reflect how we honestly feel about ourselves. If we don't respect and honor ME, neither will our partners. If we don't feel whole within ourselves, we will find a mate to fill the holes in us - hello codependency! by lorene

#2 “There’s an end to every storm. Once all the trees have been uprooted, once all the houses have been ripped apart, the wind will hush. The clouds will part. The rain will stop. The sky will clear in an instant. And only then, in those quiet moments after the storm, do we learn who was strong enough to survive it.” by lily22

Humans have no more of a right to be on this planet than other animals. Years of tradition and a social belief of human supremacy has led us to believe that humans, out of all other animals, have a right to pillage, destroy, and kill other beings.  Well, the time has come for the world to realize that we share this planet with many other animals. Animals who have voices, fears, and desires.

A sickening number of rapes are committed in America every day, but instead of looking at the disease, we only see the symptom. How do we honestly expect to decrease the frequency of rape in America if the culture itself is reinforcing the concept that it's not that bad? If we were able to change the way rape was viewed in our society, we wouldn't have to keep asking ourselves when this epidemic is going to end. by proteamundi

“Negro is an interesting word. This country couldn’t call us Africans, because if it had, we would have understood some things about ourselves. We would not have been this “Negro America”, constantly enslaved even after slavery. It would have given us a sense of continuity. So, they had to say 'colored' and 'Negro' and 'nigger' to keep us in our place- to remind us that we were only from this country.” ~Sonia Sanchez by proteamundi

When we awaken to what we are within, we can no longer be deceived by what we have been told all our lives. We then understand that we can change each thought, each choice and each action one at a time and this will change our lives.    We can overcome obstacles once we own the power of our thoughts and no one can have any say in this except for ourselves...It all begins with our thoughts, so if we can master our mind, we can master our lives as by 6leewei

The Lord Jesus came to this world as the shining light that man might not remain in darkness. Christ is the manifestation of God as light, and if people receive Him as light, they will have God. To walk in the divine light is not merely to dwell in this light; it is to live, move, act, do things, and have our being in the divine light, the light which is actually God Himself. When we dwell, live, and have our being in God, we walk in the divine light, which is the expression of God. (WL) by meghan

"To take good care of ourselves, we must go back and take care of the wounded child inside of us. You have to practice going back to your wounded child every day. You have to embrace him or her terderly, like a big brother or a big sister. You have to talk to him, talk to her. And you can write a letter to the Little child in you, of two or three pages, to that you recognize his or her presence, and will do everything you can to heal his or her wounds." — Thích Nhất Hạnh by cecilia

Sai L. This quote by Bikram Choudhury inspires me because we will always have an opportunity to renew ourselves, even when we think we don't. Yoga brings us back to our core selves by focusing on ourselves, rather than the distractions around us and inside of us. Yoga opens up new doors of creativity, knowledge, and inspiration; it is never too late to walk through those doors. #yoga #girls #sexy by robyn
