💡Spotlight on: Lori Lukasewich’s Primary Cycle, oil & alkyd on canvas, 40 x 36 in. “While clearly influenced by Realism and techniques of the old Masters, her work owes more of a debt to the practice of meditation. Each painting becomes an exercise in focus and stillness, a lesson in seeing. The resulting paintings are reflections on perception and value, particularly on domesticity and the woman’s role in creating a home”. #yycart#yycartist#realism#oilpainting#stillness#stilllife#womenartists @the.quiet.eye
So it is amazing how you can hear God more clearly when you stop trying to control a life that God created and commands. When you stop worrying (because it's gonna end how God ordained anyway). When you stop being influenced by all the voices, inside and out... you make room for a factory reset...
I've been looking at my skin and it is screaming slow down long enough to love and care for me better. Stop with all of that cover up and let me breathe so I can heal and make my reveal. I am looking at my hair and it is CLEARLY saying, I will grow to great lengths if you let me be. I am listening to my body, it is saying, can we just stop for a moment? I will perform better and endure longer if I can just rest for a moment. I am listening to my mind and it is saying, go ahead...ask me to do what I was originally designed to do and let me show you what I'm capable of. I can create more than just to work...to home...to the store...pay the bills... to church...to the meeting...drop off the kids...I am the mind of God, I can shift atmospheres...challenge me to do something different. I am listening. I am listening, finally. Realizing there is so much more I was created for.
And God interrupting my previously scheduled programming (my plans) like this, at this time, and without me having to be concerned about anything let's me know it's time to stop and listen without distractions. Instructions (His plans) are about to be downloaded. Sshhhhh... the key note speaker is approaching the podium.
Can you hear him when he calls you away?
One of the only photos that I took of the weekend- a calm pond, the changing of the leaves, fall reminding us that it’s okay to let go, a walk with my husband and now in-laws.
After months of traveling, months of being on the go, months of channeling 7 days of a week into 4 to set off to another city. This last weekend was the last of that for a while. And this walk was the perfect thing to end all of the crazy. The stillness. The quality time with our families. The calm moments. The fresh air. The beauty that surrounds us. Holding on to these bits of home for as long as I can!
“There is a vast realm of intelligence beyond thought, that thought is only a tiny aspect of that intelligence.....all the things that truly matter - beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace - arise from beyond the mind.
All true artists, whether they know it or not, create from a place of no-mind, from inner stillness.” -E.Tolle
THERE IS NO LACK. Say whaaaat?
The Second Truth of Abundance
Baby! Lack does not Exist. O yeah! 🙌🏻 Rejoice in this Truth…. there is no freaking lack! Anywhere! Ever! Nada! Zilch! How do I know lack does not exist, you ask?
Because lack is the cause of pain. Pain is caused when we believe in something that isn’t true. When we place our perspective of life out of alignment with the way the Universe sees life – pain is the result.
Remember – if we wish to manipulate Universal Energies we have to be willing to see Life the Way the Universe sees it.
The same way you learned the laws of physical universe, what to do and not through the pain and pleasure of your bodily reaction to stimulus… now evolutionary learning with the NON-PHYSICAL universe is the same - with our beliefs, thoughts, perspectives and vibrational attitudes. Your non-physical Higher Mind is letting you know what NOT to believe and what is and what isn’t TRUE through the pain and the bliss of your feelings and emotions. It’s that simple.
When there isn’t enough time, money, resources, love, or anything… life sucks. You suffer. You feel pain. You struggle. Everything is just plain strife. That’s because you’re vibrating at a frequency that literally goes against the Truth of Reality itself!
The moment you shift the belief in lack, is the moment you cease to suffer. It’s the moment you feel relief. It’s the moment you make a move toward abundance. It’s the moment you align yourself back to Truth.
So whenever you’re feeling pain, simply remember - lack does not exist! Shift into your Natural State of Infinite Abundance.
The Natural State of Abundance Meditation in the Self-Empowered Living Free Bliss Training is DESIGNED to do just this! and effortlessly bring you back to BEING abundant rather than struggling to have to create it… get it today :) link in bio
Life is a series of journeys. Physical and metaphorical. Whether you’re travelling round the world or walking down the road to visit a friend, moving from one stage of your life to another, in transition or just living the day to day of a period of stillness, you’re constantly travelling on your own personal journey. Stagnation is part of that journey, like a delay in an airport. You’re observing and absorbing your environment and the people, and surroundings, from your own particular viewpoint, with its emotions and feelings. Remember to try and be in the moment. The journey is as important as the destination. Enjoy it. And if you can’t enjoy a certain part of it, know that you’re learning from it and that it’s all part of the incredible adventure that is life. #mindfulness#journeys#adventures#life#stages#stillness#transitions#thoughtoftheday
Whatever it is, stop trying to figure it out now. Let it remain unresolved a little while. Stop trying to fast-forward to the 'answer' scene in the movie of your life; trust the present scene of 'no answer yet'. Allow the question itself space to breathe and be fertilised. Relax into the mysterious ground of Now.
“This magnificent refuge is inside you. Enter! Shatter the darkness that shrouds the doorway. Be bold. Be humble. Put away the incense and forget the incantations they taught you. Ask no permission from the authorities. Close your eyes and follow your breath to the still place that leads to the invisible path that leads you home.” ~Theresa of Avila

My beautiful morning. A smiling bub after a great night of sleep and 15 minutes of stillness in this sunrise (... cause I did not look at the time when I went to get the hub & myself a coffee a wee bit earlier then the cafe opens!)
In teaching Restorative Yoga my aim is to teach you how to do it at home, so eventually you don’t need me anymore.
Blanket wrapping technique will be taught in tomorrow’s class. It might not look much but it is oh so snuggly, it’s like someone is hugging your head as you rest 😍 Come find out: Wednesday 24th October 7.30-9pm @oldstablewellness

Tadasana. Considered to be a very simple pose yet to me it’s one of the most beautiful, grousing and rewarding. When was the last time you really took your time to just stand still and witness? Like really feel into this posture...the earth underneath your feet, your breath traveling up from your toes trough your legs up through the spine reaching further until your crown? It’s so deep. It’s grounding and it’s uplifting. It’s nurturing and it’s empowering. To me it even got a more profound meaning when I took my first workshop with @markwhitwell and he went so deep into the use of ujjayi breathing and the principle of really participating in your yoga practice. Can’t wait for the training I’m about to take with him next week and feel even more into the depth of tadasana 🙏🏽 ✨ ————————————————————- #tadasana#grounding#uplifting#beauty#yoga#yogaeveryday#yogaeverywhere#bali#indonesia#travel#happy#stillness#still#meditation#peace#healthy#lifestyle#yogateacher 📸 @lorenlotus 🙏🏽
An exclusive clip from our film "InnSaei: The Power of Intuition." A journey of soul searching, science, nature and creativity. ’Innsaei: The Sea Within’ takes us on a global journey to uncover the art of #connecting within in today’s world of distraction and stress. The world is changing faster than ever before and new ways of thinking are required. 65% of children will be doing jobs in the future that have not been invented. Statistics show that depression will likely be the highest leading cause of disease in the western world by 2020. Burn out, distraction and violence has become an integral part of our #culture , media and entertainment and we are becoming seriously disconnected from the natural world. How is this affecting the way we live our lives? ‘Innsaie’ offers radical insights on how to re-think how we think and sense the world today. Two cultural entrepreneurs go on a global journey that help even the most skeptical to uncover the hidden world of InnSæi – the Sea within. They meet world-renowned thinkers , scientists, artists, academics and spiritual leaders who share knowledge and #wisdom to unlock the nature of InnSæi: a world of huge potential with a new vision, feelings, empathy and imagination . A world that today’s culture of stress and distraction is blocking our access to. On their journey they meet a group of #children who are learning how to better cope in today’s world through an unconventional school programme. They discover how InnSæi can help us to re-think how we think and open up to our full potentials. We can no longer sit back and just expect change to happen. Change happens inside us. And it starts with InnSæi. 🐾
