You want to meditate - but you’re having trouble dropping in.⠀
The room is quiet and peaceful - but as you try to focus on your breath, the distractions come from your mind. Constantly pulling you into the past or the future. Worrying, hoping, anticipating.⠀
Or it might be that focusing on your breath is a trigger for discomfort - maybe even anxiety.⠀
Does this sound familiar? You might be interested to learn that one of the surprising benefits of #naturemeditation is that it can make meditation easier and more accessible.⠀
It’s a bit counterintuitive because you would think that there are so many more external distractions outdoors. But what happens is that in nature you can release your focus on your breath and instead be present to life unfolding in front of you. Present with your full senses - seeing, smelling, hearing, tasting, feeling. And in this way, nature becomes a beautiful support for your practice. Nature naturally invites you into the present. 🌸
So grateful to be in community with others who are connecting to the land with deeper intention.⠀

When we live from the mind we believe in duality. We see it that there is your being and your doing, your being and becoming, your aloneness and your togetherness, your individuality and your unity, your here and there, your then and now, your higher and your lower, the known and unknown. But when we move into and live from the heart, transcending our perceived separation between 2 points, transcending the notion of linear time, we can recognize our lives as a bridge whereby all is existing Now and simultaneously. Living in alignment with the Heart, Your doing and being become one, your being and becoming are always happening at the same time, your lower and your higher are still both you, there is no such thing as the known or the unknown - all is being divinely co created and orchestrated by both your individual expression and your interconnected oneness, allowing the intellegence programmed in every cell of your body to activate with each step you take - guiding you through it all.... To yield to the duality, to accept its purpose, is to work with the very creative life force that sculpted the entire Universe.... . . .
When I choose my own happiness, the universe lines everything up to support it and that which no longer serves me falls away. It is sacred law.
The senses can be deceived but the heart always knows 💚 No matter how impossible something may appear, I know that with love, anything is possible.
I stand in my own personal power and I create the life I want because it's my life.
The other day I came across a video by Jason Silva on Facebook and the words really stuck with me.
He said that in Mexico they talk about 3 deaths. The first death is the day you find out about your mortality, that one day you will die. The second death is your actual physical death and the third death is the last time someone says your name.
Every time I look at the little boy in the painting, these words come back to me. This little boy is Hugh Sharp and he lived from 1897 to 1937. He lived in a house called Hill of Tarvit Mansion, which is near Cupar in Scotland.
This Edwardian Mansion has been a National Trust of Scotland property since 1949 and I have been a guide in this house since June this year. Every time I tell visitors about Hugh and his family, it fills my heart with joy.
You see, neither Hugh or his sister Elizabeth married or had children, so after their physical death they could have easily been forgotten, but they live on in the words, hearts and minds of everyone that works at, volunteers at or visits Hill of Tarvit Mansion.
Every time I mention his name or the names of his sister Elizabeth, his mother Beatrice or his father Frederick, they live on. And even though he was only 40 years old when he died, he lives on and that is such a wonderful thought.
And he's got me thinking about who I have touched with my mere presence on this wonderful planet we all call home. So many people I have met, talked to, touched in some way. So many people I have yet to meet. People who will tell others about me, who will say my name and make me live on.
Nogen gange vender vi ryggen eller kinden til det i os som vi helst ikke vil se.
Det er nemmere at vende sig væk og lægge låg på det der smerter, og i mange tilfælde give andre skylden for vores egen indre smerte, som ligger i det dybe indre barne sår.❤️
Det er nemmere at vende ryggen til, og pege fingre ud i verden og projicere skyggerne ud på andre, fordi de simpelthen er for smertefulde at bære og rumme i os selv.
Men..hvis vi med nysgerrighed, og har interesse i at gennemgå en hver lille puslebrik, så vil “historien” optrævles som en garnnøgle, og vil kunne se klart og tydeligt hvad “frygten” i os selv” handler om.
Uanset hvilken opvågen fra ego til sjæl der sker, vil det ALDRIG kunne åbne hjertet i fuldstændig overgivelse uden påvirkninger, og pegen fingre udadtil fra vores egen indre smerte og sår, før vi overgiver os fuldstændig ind i smerten til vores indre barn.
Når alle, hver og en af traumerne hentet hjem i omfavnelse og kærlighed til dit eget indre lille barn, sættes du fri, ikke et sekund før eller efter.
TRUST ME - personligt gennemlever jeg en smerte process med en spirituel (anderkendt) mester/leder/guru, what ever... støtter mig ind i denne process
1 gang i timen, alle de sår jeg “troede” var lukket, er IKKE lukket, de står piv åbne.
Tilgengæld er healing i fuld gang, da jeg ser nye aspekter og mønstre i mig selv, og derved mærker jeg en lille åbning for kærlighed til mig selv (lille f) ind i såret for hver dag der går. Det er en langsommelig process, men...der er KUN en der kan tage ansvar for min lykke, og det er mig. Tage ANSVAR for ALLE skyggerne i mig, som gør ondt, og som jeg gerne vil pege ud på alle andre end mig selv.
Ønsker du VIRKELIG at leve fra sjælen og en VIRKELIG EGO-detoxing så er der KUN en vej, og det er igennem arbejdet med dit indre barn.
en sjælelig levevis sker ikke pludseligt, og leves ikke uden ego, med mindre du går ind i arbejdet til din personlige store livs transformation, til opvågning ind i sjælen.
'All suffering is a result of attachment.
All attachment is the result of a mistaken notion of who and what and why we are here upon the earth'
The goal of every spritual seeker is "To be in the world but not of it".
Many of my clients try to control too much. This cuts off their feeling of connection with the Divine. It causes them to live too much in their heads, and not enough from the heart. They also get out of the natural flow of life. So their energy becomes off balance, and then they don’t feel good either.
This imbalance usually comes from a lack of trust in the universe, which often stems from childhood trauma or abuse.
Working through the past and releasing it energetically can really help us to let go of control and to start living from the heart. It also helps us to feel that we are back in the flow of the universe, and attracts synchronicities.
When clients have begun their healing journey and start to trust more, then this distrust or need for control only happens part of the time. It is worth working towards eliminating it completely in order to more forward in the best possible way.
To let it go and move into the heart, first ask the angels to help you with this. Archangels Gabriel and Jophiel are particularly good for this, and Archangel Metatron always helps lightworkers with everything.
Conscious awareness and intention is the second step. Try to consult your heart and learn what your heart energy feels like. Breathe through any fear that might come up. Some guided meditations can help you to get out of your head (see my YouTube channel - Kristin Taylor Intuitive). Third, you will need to continue to work through unresolved issues from your past. This can be done with a healer or other professional, or on your own if you feel able.
Heart-centered, joyful living is so worth the effort! 💙💕 by Kristin Taylor, Angel Expert and Master Healer
intense pruning happening over here...no surprise to have drawn Chinnamastā...letting go of our limited perceptions of self. not for the faint of heart....i’m wielding my sword!! in gratitude to @yantrawisdom for her potent deck 💜
If you can’t risk falling on your mat, can you risk falling in love?💙 .
The practice of yoga doesn’t end when you step off your mat. 👣When we learn to try new things, step outside of our comfort zone, or breathe deeper into the pose, that becomes how we live our life off the mat. And ultimately it opens our heart. We hear what the heart wants, we make decisions with our heart. We live with an open, courageous and compassionate heart. 💖
Thanks for the inspo @advancedyogatraining 💚🙏🏻
Self love is an ocean
and your heart is the vessel.
Make it full,
and any excesses will spill over
into the lives of other people
you hold dear.
But you must come first.

Do you need to #rebalance ??
.....read on ☯️💗☯️
If you’ve been feeling unbalanced and aren’t quite sure exactly why then this could well be for you. Over the course of the 4 weeks you will learn: ☯️ The origins of any low self esteem or low confidence you’ve been dealing with. ☯️ How this is all due to years of conditioning and is a mechanism of protection. ☯️ Understanding your response to fear, fight or flight, and how to respond in a more conscious and positive way. ☯️ Learning to fully trust your intuition and vibes and how this helps you make heart centred decisions that create massive opportunities for manifesting. ☯️How opening your heart chakra connects you to your true authentic self. ☯️ You as your true authentic self - a heart centred being. Find out your values and beliefs, the ones not forced onto you by society/upbringing/social media. ☯️ How to reflect on your current life, is it in alignment with what you’ve discovered about yourself on the course? ☯️ Create a plan of action to keep moving forward purposely from a heart centred perspective to remain in alignment.
This programme will be delivered online with 2 x 15 minute videos released per week and an accompanying work book with journal prompts and suggestions for meditation.
It is a beta test version of a final programme costing £200, as such I have reduced the cost to allow as many people who need this to be able to access for the one time low cost of £25! Commences nov 1st, time commitment per week is two hours 💜
In Hindu thought there are four stages in the human journey. The first stage is the desire for pleasure, the second is the desire for success, the third is the desire for community, and the fourth is the desire for liberation.
Many students come to yoga having moved through the desire for success and having discovered a yearning for something larger- a spiritual connection, a sense of community. Others arrive at our studio still immersed in their quest for success, only to find that yoga connects them to these deeper spiritual longings. To move forward, then, into the next stage of the human journey, we must break with the past.
Day III of the Program will be on tonight , make sure you come in totally hydrated and ready to sweat.
