DO - Do what? Whatever God is calling you to do. If God says go, go. If God says no, then no. If God says wait, then get to work where you are.
Simply choose to be obedient. It won't always be easy and it won't always be convenient but Obedience can unlock doors that you don't even know are locked. Obedience brings peace, blessing, joy. Living in obedience is living your mission. •
According to recent gay bullying statistics, gay and lesbian teens are two to three times as more likely to commit teen suicide than other youths. About 30 percent of all completed suicides have been related to sexual identity crisis. Students who also fall into the gay, bisexual, lesbian or transgendered identity groups report being five times as more likely to miss school because they feel unsafe after being bullied due to their sexual orientation. About 28 percent out of those groups feel forced to drop out of school altogether. Although more and more schools are working to crack down on problems with bullying, teens are still continuing to bully each other due to sexual orientation and other factors. #gay#gayteen#momlife#listen#teenagerspost#teens#lgbt#sucidalthoughts#suicideprevention#suicidememes#loveislove
Some sort of collective consciousness shift must be happening, because I just slept 11 hours (which I never do) and apparently I'm not the only one that this random long night in the dream realm came to.
I feel like I lived multiple lifetimes and was feeling a bit drained. Did my yoga practice to open up my channels, dived into meditation drawing in the golden light to clear, adjust, align and connect my stream of energy to that of my higher self and still was feeling a bit off. Soooo, I was guided to grab my angel aura citrine Quartz and lay in the sun. Spirit guided me to draw in the Light into the crystal and through the crystal with intentions to activate, connect and bring balance to the functions of my Endocrine system. The sun was bright, warm and nurturing. I definitely felt energy rushing through my body and so I gave it direction to reach the tips of my fingers and toes and circulate my entire body. My third eye area where I had the Quartz crystal still feels hot as I write this 10 minutes later!
Quartz, in its many different forms (citrine, amethyst, smokey, aventurine, etc) has been labeled one of the most powerful crystals by @hibiscusmoon due to it's scientific proven properties of being all three - -piezoelectric
The fact that Quartz holds all 3 powers makes it a #SuperCrystal in my book! (tourmaline is second!) Sage bee and I are quite excited to bring forth the experience and shared knowledge of yet another type of Quartz - the Titanium Aura Quartz Crystal - this Thursday evening! Check out the post for that event for more details Or go to my SuperNova Energetics FB page! I love you and I pray that you are able to remember your tools and listen to your inner guidance for support in getting through this life of ups, downs and loop de loops!! Xoxoxo
This excerpt from a study (see below) on effectiveness of antidepressant medication (or lack thereof) is my favourite thing of the day. Love heals!! "The greatest benefit may come from the care and concern shown to the patients during treatment." 💜💙 #connect#share#listen#care#empathy#loveheals
After thousands of studies and tens of billions of dollars, researchers found that sugar pills (placebo) treated depression more effectively than a common antidepressant. In fact, a 2002 study published in the American Journal of Psychiatry compared St. John’s wort against Zoloft, finding that St. John’s wort fully cured 24 percent in patients; Zoloft, 25 percent; and placebo, 32 percent. The sugar pills caused profound changes in the same areas of the brain affected by antidepressants, proving that drugs aren’t always the answer. The greatest benefit may come from the care and concern shown to the patients during treatment. - Karen Jensen, ND
As parents, we have all been warned about the awful #teenagers raising teenagers doesn't have to be the chore they promised it would be. Just like any good relationship, teens require communication & trust. If you need help understanding your teen we happily offer private or family sessions.
Here are some basic listening tips to start building healthy relationships with your kids right now. Oftentimes, when a youth has an issue and needs to connect with an adult, listening on the adult’s part is a core ingredient for whether or not the youth feels heard. The issue is, many adults don’t practice basic listening skills and youth often are left feeling unheard and not understood, if not completely written off. Deep listening is the practice of bringing one’s awareness to the present moment with an attitude of non-judgment—a type of mindfulness practice. The difference between deep listening and mindfulness meditation, for example, is that in meditation the object of our awareness is often our breath, body, thought process, and sometimes even just experience itself. In deep listening however, the object of focus is on the conversation you’re having, and the experience of the person talking to you. The benefit of this skill is that the teen that’s confiding in you will feel heard, listened to, understood, and as a result your relationship will grow stronger. While practicing deep listening it’s often skillful to be aware of our own bodies and to portray interested, curious body language (appropriate eye contact, potentially leaning in, and an overall orientation toward the teen talking rather than a dismissive one). With your body: While they speak to you, orient your body towards them, maintain a physical posture of interest, and maintain appropriate eye contact. With your mind: Keep most of your awareness on the story/narrative of what the other person is disclosing. Every once in a while make sure to check-in with your breathing; feeling your breath in the body to ground yourself in the present moment. Staying in the present moment will help you stay more present, and it will increase your presence
#thatsright#thatsright#thatsright I work off of energy and vibes. Takes little time to know if that person will remain in your life when you #listen . I tell my friends all the time, to listen, but they aren't listening. They are in their own head. You cannot be ego -focused and lead a happy life. Everyday I strive to learn and improve myself. #everyday 📿 Repost from @la_passionate
