I have been writing for a few years now just on Facebook, but recently have been guided to reach further out into the world. I need help to get the momentum going. Humbly I am asking if you will click and share my article. My heart is jumping out of my chest, I am so grateful for your help!
We have so many examples of people in history who forgave their persecutor. Nelson Mandela stands out as one of them, he was wrongfully incarcerated for 20 years and was able to forgive. He says, “I knew if I didn’t leave my bitterness and hatred behind, I would still be in prison. Forgiveness liberates the soul.”
2019 is the year of partnering with Angelic Holy Ones of the Spiritual realm. For lifetimes the collective mind has been perceiving the Spiritual realm as separate. This has caused much suffering for humans and our planet. We are now being guided to connect the dots by partnering up the earth realm with the spirit realm. In reality, these worlds are not and never have been separate, it was just the mind that made them separate.
I think the greatest way my yoga has changed over the years is that I put far fewer conditions on what I need to do it. In the beginning, I needed a studio, no less than 60 minutes, heat, a mat, music, a hard surface, water, blah, blah, blah.
I’ve reached a point of no return! I have one daughter graduating high school and one graduating eighth grade. My mind has been spinning with these endings and also the new beginnings. It’s a super busy time, but reflecting back I see that every year has been busy.
Monica Biery is a momma of three, two teenaged sons and an eight year old daughter and considers her vocation as a mother to be the most important, most amazing and the most difficult of all. Often times being a new momma in our culture can be very isolating. The purpose of this group is to bring new mommas together to learn from each other, to gain encouragement, insight and information and to love and support one another through this beautiful and precious yet sometimes scary and vulnerable time of life.
The body awareness has gone too far! I have heard it all, from too skinny to too fat, too tall, too short. Implants in the chin, cheeks, and now buttocks! Nose jobs, boob jobs, taking out the implants, spray tanning the skin, freezing the muscles in the forehead and fat tissue.
There was a point during my time serving at the Ganga Prem Hospcie when Reshu asked if I would help carry her to the outdoor area where she would be bathed. I was under the impression that there would be some type of method or contraption that would transport her without too much effort. As it turns out, I was instructed that we would simply grab Reshu by her limbs and lug her to the bathing area.
I have always had a fascination with weapons when I was growing up. Maybe I could attribute it to practicing martial arts since I was four years old. Maybe it was from watching television shows like the Ninja Turtles and Power Rangers. I also grew up in Newcastle California where there were plenty of things in nature to swing and hit things with.
I knew the Vipassana 10 day meditation was going to be a challenge the moment I stepped on to the grounds of the Dhamma Joti Center in Burma. The humidity was thick and the center was located right next to a swampy pond. Needless to say, there were tons of mosquitos swarming the property.
The mornings during my 10-day Vipassana meditation course felt like I was
going to trek a mountain so high that I could not see the top of the peak.
This sinking feeling in my guts became heavier knowing that I had nine more
mountains to climb after the one right in front of me.
Just the simple act of reading or watching the news can be traumatic these days. Things have been a bit crazy, and the holidays are approaching as well With all of this energy, our yoga practice and this community are more important than ever.
The mind is fertile ground for seeds (thoughts) to grow into reality. The more we give attention and belief to our repetitive thoughts, whether negative or positive, the more they get energized. It is true that many of our thoughts are “junk thoughts.”
Life moves so fast sometimes that our minds can spin in circles. It seems that life’s demands keep growing and meeting the family’s needs on a daily basis is getting harder not easier. How can we keep from feeling out of control and live peacefully?
