Sebagai umat Kristiani, kita sering berpuasa, terutama pada masa prapaskah. Kenapa kita perlu berpuasa? Karena dosa telah membuat hubungan kita dengan Tuhan renggang dan bahkan terputus. Dengan berpuasa kita kembali membentuk diri kita agar lebih baik sehingga kita bisa kembali mendekatkan diri kita kepada-Nya. Puasa bukan saja menahan lapar dan haus, pantang ini dan itu, akan tetapi juga menuntut kita untuk merubah hati kita, memperbaharui sikap kita, merenungi apa yang salah selama ini sehingga bisa kita rubah ke arah yang lebih baik. Puasa kita akan gagal jika ternyata hubungan kita dengan Tuhan tidak membaik, dan kita tidak merasakan kedamaian yang selalu ada ketika kita dekat dengan-Nya. Mungkin kita berhasil menahan makan dan minum, berhasil pantang apa yang kita suka, akan tetapi sikap kita sama saja, hati kita tidak berubah menjadi semakin baik itu sama halnya bahwa puasa kita gagal. Agar supaya puasa kita bermakna, perlu pembaharuan diri dari dalam. Kita harus selalu memperbaharui diri melalui pertobatan, sehingga kantong anggur lama kita menjadi baru supaya bisa diisi anggur yang baru dari Tuhan. Amin.
First of all, being lost is normal. It happens to the best of us, not knowing which direction to take in life. Nothing seems to add up, everyone is constantly on your case for something or wants something from you and you circle around not knowing which direction to go.
Well, chances are it’s not the first time and not the last time you are going to feel like this. And usually I find people are going around and asking others what to do. No don’t do that. Stop right there. They have their own story to figure out. You can ask for advice but thats it.
You have your own calling to follow up with.
So sit down, take a big deep breath and think. No not overthink. Think, even better yet. Feel. Where does your heart pull you. What feeling do you get in your gut thinking about the different directions you can take. How makes that thought make you feel. Chances are you never actually listen inside and watched out for those little changes of feelings. Do it more often and you get used to it. Listen inward. Because you know what you need to do and what you want, you know better then anybody around you what your calling is. Cancel out the noise of the outside world and just, breath calmly, ask yourself questions and you are going to be surprised how much clarity you can get. And then of course get your ass up and do it. ❤️❤️ #truth#quotes#quote#qoutesoftheday#reminder#instaquote#positivevibes#positive#staystrong#motivation#inspiring#words#trusttheuniverse#spirituality#success#inspiration#understanding#boss#motivation#wisdom#inspirationalquotes#instagood#instalike#fun#vancouver#insparation#feminism#havefun#fall#love
THIS is what my latest ponderings have lead me to...
It’s so easy to stress, worry, whinge, complain, blame, etc...
But the reality is, if you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the problem!
If we spend our time focusing on problems and what/who is to blame, we literally perpetuate the issue & become part of the problem...
We need to stop 🛑
Look at the situation anew and ask what we can do about it.
How can we contribute to solutions...
How can we innovate creative responses that end up creating even better outcomes than before?
How can we use what is unfolding for the greatest good of all?
I’m not sure about you, but I sure needed reminding of this one!
Who’s hopping on solution-focused train with me??
Who’s coming to solution-town with me?!
Did you need this reminder? 🙌🏻👌🏼🌿☀️🌈☺️
Hicks is describing the process of manifesting exactly what you want and deserve - before it’s too late! Once something has manifested, it’s extremely hard to change. Here is an example 👉🏾 you design cars and the vehicle you have been working on is rollin’ off the line with a thousand of its kind right behind. You have thought about it, molded it, finished all the steps and now it’s ready to be driven. You have put hours of thought and care into this - now would be an impossible time to reconfigure the engine! ✨ Before the car was manifested there was a dream, a thought process, a knowing that you were going to create something and before the knowing, it was waiting for you as an “invisible vibration.” This is the same process that happen every moment. There is an invisible vibration occurring before any manifestation occurs and every thought produces a manifestation of some kind, whether it be physical, emotional or otherwise. This is the MOST IMPORTANT step and not to be missed. This vibration is where trust, knowing, love, positivity, care … exists. Try it out. What are you manifesting before the manifestation?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Y él me mostró un río de agua de vida, claro como el cristal, que fluía desde el trono de Dios y del Cordero, por en medio de su camino ancho.
Y de este lado del río, y de aquel lado, había árboles de vida que producían doce cosechas de fruto, y que daban sus frutos cada mes.
Y las hojas de los árboles eran para la curación de las naciones.
Y ya no habrá ninguna maldición.
Pero el trono de Dios y del Cordero estará en la ciudad, y sus esclavos le rendirán servicio sagrado;
y verán su rostro, y tendrán su nombre en sus frentes.
Además, ya no habrá noche, y no tienen necesidad de luz de lámpara ni tienen
luz solar, porque Jehová Dios arrojará luz sobre ellos, y reinarán para siempre jamás.
Y me dijo:
“Estas palabras son fieles y verdaderas; sí, Jehová el Dios de las expresiones inspiradas de los profetas envió a su ángel para mostrar a sus esclavos las cosas que tienen que efectuarse dentro de poco.
Y, ¡mira!, vengo pronto.
Feliz es cualquiera que observa las palabras de la profecía de este rollo”.
1. Turtle ♡ "Stop trying to make something happen."
Sometimes you just have to sit back and let situations unfold naturally. It can be exhausting trying to make things happen on your own lifes timeline when the universe has other plans. Try to keep in mind that what you want isn't always what you need, or it might not be the right time. Go with the flow like a sea turtle riding the strong ocean currents and what you need will manifest itself in time. The turtle teaches us about patience and retreat so when this animal comes into your life it's time for a little alone time in nature, away from the hustle and bustle of your every day life. Take some time to enjoy the beauty of the world around you and think about your role in it all. Mastering the balance of your busy daily life with time for self reflection will end up leading you to a happier and more fulfilled existence.
2. Lizard ♡ "Pay attention to your dreams and visions."
Sometimes Spirit speaks to us in indirect ways and when we open up to this we're able to receive the messages. Open yourself up to what might be coming through for you. Sometimes life is so hectic it's difficult to receive these messages so pay special attention to your dreams. Keep a dream journal and jot down anything you might remember. You might notice that over time patterns begin to emerge. Our ancestors and Spirit are always communicating with us, but it is up to us to drop our walls, clear our minds, open our hearts and receive the message.
3. Koala ♡ "Speak less and listen more."
There is a difference between listening and actually hearing what someone is saying. Most people aren't actively listening, yet rather using that time to think about how they will respond. By doing this, you end up missing bits and pieces of what that person is actually saying. It's usually not intentional, yet happens nonetheless. Koala medicine is about empathy and not barreling over others. It's about holding back and allowing others the freedom to not only speak, but to speak and be heard. ☆♡☆
Yoga goes much deeper than the physical aspects of Yoga we all know and see in the Western world. Yoga is an ancient science of self-mastery, connection and evolution to our truth, our most authentic nature.
In a our Sattva Yoga Journeys, we use a holistic and integrated practice incorporating various types of yoga to heal, shift and transform the energetic layers of the body.
This is the ultimate journey into Self!
Warrior Breath 1:

Mantra Kriya: Sat Chit Ananda

Ananda - Bliss
Creates an energetic state experiencing radiance, bliss and joy. Produces and upward spiral of energy in our vortex.
So humbled today.
My great grandmother’s necklace always gets compliments when I wear it. I love wearing her jewellery. She was half-Jamaican! Which means I’m actually 1/16th black! #funfact . She died when I was young. My mom really loved her. My middle name is Suzanne for her. Great Gramma Suzie...
Today was incredibly mind expanding. My company, @Arbonne throws the best conferences and so far this one has been out of the park! I wish I could translate into everyone’s minds around me the incredible personal development and awe inspiring concepts shared that would truly change anyone’s life. #jeepers . #CNTC2018 Our company-wide joke is that we are actually a personal development company disguised as a health and beauty company! Oh wait, except we have some of the best skincare and wellness products available in the world! Well, in my humble opinion anyway... 😝
Why don’t people throw out their garbage, btw? I noticed that piece of trash on the ground after I took this picture and it’s like, why? Why is this here? Are you too cool to be kind to the earth, you litterer? Like, honestly. Why? I don’t understand this. Sometimes I throw garbage away when I see it, just because. I probably would have thrown this away had I noticed it lol! #Litterbugs are not cool! #Itscooltobekind to all of #God ’s creation. Seriously. #sidenote
Anyway! Finally, I wanted to send over a crazy huge #shoutout and #thankyou to our keynote speaker today @hal_elrod today who was hugely inspirational and impressed me as an #emotional#guru for reals. He confirmed SO MUCH of what God has been showing me about how we can literally transcend emotions and operate on another plane - literally living like everyday is the most important day of our life. This guy has beat death twice already, LITERALLY. He realizes that happiness in this life is not the goal. Happy is an emotion on our journey, but the way we feel doesn’t define us! Peace is where it’s at. To stand resolutely. Contentment. Ah, so much more I could say but just buy his book, which is what I’m about to do ASAP @themiraclemorning. You are so on point, Hal! Much #gratitude today. 🙏🏼
