Cont: when I find myself in these more "melancholic" uneasy, and hopeless moments of life I often notice how much I detach and disassociate with the outside world, and myself. I begin to feel like I lack more than anything. Not seeing a reason to "do" to "be" to take care of myself or anything around me.
But I am put into a state of mind where I see I must choose to either sink into my own self pity and inadequacy repeating old patterns, or I must force myself to do what's uncomfortable, to change the conditioned outlets of release and control. To step outside, to be present with others, to be active in this world no matter how difficult it may be.
I must ask myself "do I wish to continually remain in this state of mind for my future moments?" This helps me see the broader perspective of wanting to heal, wanting and desiring to grow, to get myself out of my own suffering.
Doing simple things like going for a walk, taking care of the garden, calling up a friend, serving my neighbors in some way, helps me reconnect, to know that this darkness is just a phase, that the universe isn't there to punish you but that it constantly reminds you of your purpose and how much you are loved and protected.
You are born as a child of absolute divinity, Pureness and love, and just because you experience pain does not mean you are any less than your essence. You are loved, you ARE love. You are love and light no matter what you tell yourself 🕉

I'm a yoga and meditation teacher of crystal soul yoga, I'm an entrepreneur and I am also a coach doing deep inner work with my clients. When you go in the process of self-inquiry you will want to meditate and you will seek stillness. Whatever comes up in your meditation - thoughts, images, feelings - often needs clearing and guidance. And that's where coaching steps in. In coaching I think it's very important to work with meditation and states of expanded consciousness in order to access deeply anchored patterns and to resolve the root of the problem. Looking deeply inside the soul is the so(u)lution. Therefore, a good effective coaching is always using several techniques to help clients the most. We are helping people to look at their issues from a different angle and choose empowerment and self-realization over fear and pity. ✨ #werisetogether
In a crowded street, I found the utmost Peace! ☮️ 🙏
I wonder if it was a co-incidence or plan of the universe.
We did not have any plan to visit Srirangam that day since I had a bad cold and fever. We thought of visiting Rockfort Temple first and explore nearby market and return.
But somehow we saved time and thought of visiting Srirangam too. .
It was 3 or 3.30 in the afternoon and we left from Chatiram Bus stand to Srirangam by Bus.
We reached Srirangam in about 10mins had filter coffee in the market area. Exploring here and there, moving forward towards the temple. .
And suddenly there were chants and a pavilion moving out from the temple. Devotees gathering in line. There was a big elephant symbolising 'Ganesha' in the front and behind it was the idol of Lord Vishnu being carried by a number of Pundits. .
Where people had gathered before time to get the glimpse of the Jhanki, we were lucky enough that the moment we reached, we saw the elephant coming out and the idol behind it just in front of us. It was a blessing! 🙏🙏 .
But it also makes me think, that though I am not religious, I believe in Karma. I believe in Nature! But yet in all unbelievable ways I witness things that most people would do anything to experience. .
We try to fix things in our lives with outside remedies , but we fail to change ourselves first. We do not recognise our own flaws and weaknesses. We blame it on stars. We blame on time. But we don't analyse ourselves. The moment we accept ourselves as we are, we accept our flaws, we accept our mistakes, that's the moment we find inner peace! 🙏🙏
Not bad for living in a city 🌃 as long as I can be on the Earth, even for just a few minutes a day, I'll be fine.
As long as I can relax, rest and fill my diaphragm with fresh oxygen, I'll be fine.
As long as I can partake of the fruits, and drink the good water, I'll be fine.
As long as I can effectively guide my thoughts and emotions toward a higher vibration of love, joy, humor, compassion, I'll be fine.
As long as I can protect my vibration from lower frequencies and have sufficient time to transmute them, I will be fine.
And as long as I can look myself in the mirror and accept EVERYTHING, in order to free my SELF of JUDGEMENT and see the world thru the eyes of a wild, silly, uninhibited child, I WILL BE FINE! Why so serious? 😝
In me, the shoreless ocean
let the waves of the universe
rise and fall as they will
I am neither enhanced nor diminished
In me the shoeless ocean
the universe imagined
I am still and formless
In this alone I abide
The Self is not in objects
Nor are object in the pure infinite self
The Self is tranquil
Free of attachment and desire
In this alone I abide
I am Awareness alone
The world is a passing show
How can thoughts arise of acceptance or rejection

Yo. Mental debt. It’s a thing. I think I might’ve finally hit that threshold of not giving a fuck anymore. Idk yet. But I’ve been moving differently lately. Like on some care free shit. I realized I spend/spent WAY too much time worrying about how people perceive/value me in life as opposed to who I really am and how I feel about myself. And it affected(affects) how I maneuvered(maneuver) in life. I’m already a naturally reserved and somewhat introverted type of dude, but when I’m actually passionate about something, whatever it is, I tend to reel back and not fully/accurately express when I need to be the most obdurate. All this for the sake of what I think people may feel or think about me. Because at the end of the day, I care. I do. But I tend to care way too much. This has not always been the case, though. Humility has mentally set me back so far that it gets hard to think highly of myself at times. This shit is deeper than a gram caption. I just don’t care to overthink shit anymore, mayne. It literally stifles my happiness and growth. Niggas was real life struggling to get a quarter of their confidence back. With that being said, I’m back on my free spirit shit. I can’t trip bout what you think of me. Your views of me will be YOUR VIEWS. Doing me with no strings attached. With love and sincerity, Byron Overshown.
I can hear it in your voice and see it in your arms crossed over your chest. You already think you know. Why, then, should I waste my time and energy trying to convince you otherwise? It will only make you angry and throw me off kilter. It's not my place to interfere with your journey. I am responsible only for mine. So, goodbye for now. Come find me when you've decided to wake up! ™@sacredsara
I don't have Faith every day. I'd be lying if I said I did. I'm a Christian, yet I still struggle with this sometimes...especially after Kris passed. But I know God doesn't hold it against me when I struggle or even when I'm mad at Him. Just like my earthly parents wouldn't hold it against me either. The darkness can be very very dark....but His light ALWAYS shines brighter...I just have to remind myself sometimes to look up 💚 #Repost @dailygrowthquotes
Earlier in my awakening journey I had come to understand the importance of accepting my darkest and most intense emotions. Lately I am realizing that it's not just about letting them surface, it's also very much about learning to function while you are going through them. We can't always hide from the world and lay in bed when we are not feeling our best. The art then becomes creating a space which not only allows them to surface but also allows us to remain connected to the world and the people around us. We can learn to live life with such compassion for ourselves, so that our wounded parts can rise while we continue our day to day lives. This requires compassion, love and above all faith. The faith that our current circumstances are not final, this is only temporary and it will pass. Nothing is permanent, this is a law of nature. So today if you are not feeling well, relax and let your emotions surface. The only way to heal them is by experiencing them fully without looking for an escape. Let them come up and have faith, because this too shall pass.
How do you treat your inspirations? Do you allow them to to inspire you or do you let your mind clench onto them - take hold of them and turn them into mental concepts in your life?
Do you allow your inspirations to truly touch you, touch your heart?
Your inspirations, your excitement, your epiphanies offer you a deep holistic upgrade of your whole being.
Pay attention to how you respond to your ideas, your inspirations and your excitement. Be aware not to mentally clench and kill the flow of energy that is being offered to you.. Inspirations are filled with magic and have so much to show us, so much to give us that goes way beyond the thought patterns our minds can produce.
Do your ideas stay in your mind?
Do you pay attention to the immediate deep offering of each idea and inspiration?
Are you trying to control your life? Plan your bliss?
The excitement and the energy that you feel when you have an idea or an inspiration is a direct offering in this now - it is your mind that puts it into a linear plan - places it somewhere in the future. But it’s being offered to you right here and now! Receive it!
I encourage you to explore how you can be with that feeling in the moment it arises and truly let that energy flow through your whole being right in the moment. Take a moment to be silent with it.
How does the idea inspire your body? How does the feeling of it inspire your heart? How are you inspired to move, to speak? What are you inspired to emit, give, share? Right in the moment - how can you rest in that, act on that?
Take a moment when it arises to fully allow it into your being. Breathe the inspiration into your cells. Allow the excitement to align and upgrade your whole being with that reality.
See it unfold so effortlessly. Trust that it will unfold so effortlessly.
And know that however delightful or horrific life seems, you are the infinite constant stillness beyond the ever-changing dance of possibilities that we call life.
This picture was taken in 2015, during one of the first cycles of my blossoming. I look back at this picture now and see a younger version of myself. As my path unfolds before me now. My vision is clearer than ever before! I have learned so much and continue to learn. I've seen more strength and power within me than I've ever thought I had. I broke many barriers of illusion than I ever thought possible! Man gets on this path and tend to start off with "Cosmic Cinderella Syndrome." He has this idea that everything is just going to be amazingly blissful all the time and that Extraterrestials or a Messiah is going to save him from his life. All that he has to do is do a little meditation here, pull a few cards there and dabble everywhere! There are no shortcuts if you wish to see the essence that lies beyond this shell of flesh and bone. You will experience pain and you will feel it deeper than the average human being. You will struggle and you will feel that deeply too, but you will also feel the accomplishments and joys just as deeply. You will have to take responsibility for your shit! But that also means that you will also be able to take responsibility and own your triumphs! Do not misunderstand and fool yourself into believing that this magickal or mystical path is in place for you to escape. It is in place for you to transform and break free! There is a difference! Happy Friday Friends! • • •
EL OBJETIVO DEL YOGA
(No, no es hacer la vertical) "La postura no es el objetivo. Volverte flexible no es el objetivo. Pararte sobre las manos no es el objetivo. El objetivo es crear espacio donde alguna vez te quedaste atascado. Quitar las capas de protección que construiste alrededor de tu corazón. Apreciar tu cuerpo y tomar conciencia de la mente y del ruido que ésta genera. Estar en paz con quien sos. El objetivo es amar a... bueno, a vos. Andá a tu mat de yoga para sentir, no para lograr una meta. Cambiá tu enfoque y tu corazón crecerá." Rachel Brathen #yoga#asana#yogapractice#yogapose#asana#yogalove#sadhana#selfrealization#sirsasana#upsidedown
A curious aspect of the dying-god myth is that of the Hanged Man. the most important example of this peculiar conception is found in the Odinic rituals where Odin hangs himself for nine nights from the branches of the World Tree and upon the same occasion also pierces his own side with the sacred spear.
As the result of this great sacrifice, Odin while suspended over the depths of Nifl-heim discovered by meditation the runes... Esoterically, the Hanged Man is the human spirit which is suspended from heaven by a single thread. Wisdom, not death, is the reward for this voluntary sacrificed dude in which the human soul, suspended above the world of illusion, and meditating upon its unreality, is rewarded by the achievement of self-realization. -The Secret teachings of all ages-

Shedding all that I'm not, aspects of my life that once seemed disconnected have begun to align themselves.
Yesterday at a consciousness gathering I was asked to teach a movement workshop at a friend's studio. I'm not sure why I wasn't actively seeking this out before; I didn't feel ready. But my truth is I can heal, open, and expand through movement and I want to teach this to others seeking something deeper in their life, who want to space dance, who recognize they have stagnant energy. .
if you're interested in a workshop or in a one-on-one session, stay tuned for more info to come soon, or please contact me via DM. Breathing in that #goodassprana 💖🌺🌍✨
