🔥Fighting Dreamers🔥 Wearing our Team 7 designs to the FLOW concerts at Otakon/Anime Boston were some of the most magical experiences of my life 😭 Like many Naruto fans, FLOW is far more than just a band - they're the voice of a generation of otaku who came of age to the anime of the 2000's. THANK YOU, FLOW 🧡💙❤ #FLOW#naruto#narutocosplay#team7#narutouzumaki#sasukeuchiha#sakuraharuno
“My body is a projection of my consciousness.” ~ @deepakchopra .
The more I let go of my attachment and obsession with outward beauty and aesthetics, the more my outward appearance has become a reflection of my state of being. I am not my body or my mind: I am awareness in my purest form. I am aware that my body is a reflection of the magical genius taking place every moment of every day; a heart that beats without instruction, lungs that breathe naturally without the need for me to direct them...unless it’s to breathe deeper. The more stillness and silence I integrate into my being, the more my body thrives. I love the dynamism of working out and being active, but the key to balance is maintaining restorative and rejuvenating stillness every single day. In a world constantly challenging us to do the most, I am finally listening to the quiet voice inside my heart telling me to sit down, to be still. .
“Be still and know that I am God.” ~ Psalm 46:10
Flow: the action or fact of moving along in a steady, continuous stream."the flow of water into the pond"
Go with the flow: be relaxed and accept a situation, rather than trying to alter or control it.
When I think of the word flow, I think of being at ease. As I flow, I’m allowing what is happening in the moment to take place. I’m able to disrupt the momentum of doubt that may take place. I go with the process instead of against it. When I go with the flow I’m lessening my reaction to wanting to control. Going with the flow can feel scary at times, but it often alleviates added stress for me. I can ground myself in the unknown. Allow the fear I have to take place. Allow myself to be happy and content. The full spectrum of my emotions can come,and pass freely. When we are in the moment, this is living. This is when we are simply trusting and knowing that in this moment all is well. I flow to allow myself to return to me. When I’m flowing I’m moving with love, and in turn I’m more present. Flow freely. Know that as we continue to let go and flow, we in turn create more peace within our soul. We are able to have immense gratitude for what is, and absorb the lesson. We simply move steady and unravel step by step.
Here in space,
Without his face,
No sight of his existence.
Not knowing why,
This love still thrives,
Space knows not, it’s distance.
I am aware,
You’re over there,
While space creates resistance.
It does not know,
I need you so,
Space has no insistence.
Frequentemente observo pessoas a querem mudar os resultados insatisfatórios que estão a ter, sem sequer observar (sem-julgamentos) e aceitar (com generosidade) o lugar onde se encontram neste momento.
De chicote a mão e uma consequente dificuldade em reconhecer que estão a fazer o melhor que podem em busca dos resultados que desejam, tornam os seus processos para lá de dolorosos.
Por isso mesmo que escolher caminhos que promovam uma atitude de aceitação e onde te possas acolher mesmo quando as tuas escolhas e comportamentos não favoreçam o resultado que pretendes, será na maior parte das vezes bem mais interessante, na medida em que vai diminuir o teu nível de resistência e desgaste.
Basta fazeres um paralelo à forma por vezes resistente que reages naquelas situações em que alguém te aponta o dedo 👉 por alguma atitude ou comportamento.
Em nome de mudar seja o que for em ti ou nos resultados que produzes nas várias esferas da tua vida, talvez queiras trazer para mais perto de ti a ACEITAÇÃO. A aceitação de quem tu ESTÁS neste momento e daquelas que acreditas serem de momento as tuas fraquezas.
Aquela aceitação em que consegues ‘de verdade’ integrar em ti o facto de estares a fazer o melhor que podes a cada momento. 🖐️ #creativeflow#coaching#pnl#criatividade#desenvolvimentopessoal#elevateyourmindset#expansão#potencial#flow#designers#musicos#makers#artistas#empreendedorescriativos#atores#bailarinos#fotografos
HOW TO AVOID THE PITFALL OF SPIRITUALITY / FLOW / BEING IN THE NOW "I learned that happiness is in the now. Happiness is being happy with what you have. It's enjoying the small pleasures of life. I got really good at being happy and only doing things that flow easily like magic. Now I realize I was misguided into believing that I shouldn't work hard or put effort into trying to get what I want. I want to be inspired to push myself and work hard at something because it's meaningful... It is an equally important part of this experience" said Carly Wade at the end of our last coaching session.
One of the most common pitfalls from diving into spirituality is the illusion of effortlessness. We are told that abundance will happen with the right mindset and that if we are aligned with ourselves and the universe, everything will flow. If we fail it's because we didn't believe hard enough / aren't aligned with our deepest purpose. As much as it can be true, these are dangerous thoughts because they're often spoken by faith healers who take advantage of those looking for help.
Flow and effortlessness happen, and they're not in contradiction with hard work, struggle and perseverance. When we strive for what we want despite failures, we build resilience and a capacity to create magic.
I guide my clients with flow, effortlessness and being in the now... AND I guide my clients to work hard, strive through challenges and overcome struggles. Being spiritual and happy with what you have, can be integrated with drive and ambition.
Work hard and it may become easy. Overcome painful challenges and it may become effortless. Persevere through struggles and magic may happen.
1. What are 3 things you accomplished effortlessly / with flow?
2. What are 3 things you accomplished by putting effort and fighting against the flow?
3. What is different between answers from question 1 and 2?
4. What us similar between answers from question 1 and 2?
Keep unfolding, keep shining,
• And it dawned on me that I might have to change my inner thought patterns... that I would have to start believing in possibilities that I wouldn’t have before, that I had been closing my creativity down to a very narrow, controllable scale... that things had become too familiar and I might have to disorient myself. -Bob Dylan •

Slow is the new fast 🐢
I am currently in Crete where I am teaching and offering body therapy sessions at one of Karina Helsteds amazing retreats
The theme of this trip seems to be ‘go slow to go fast’. In my experience with yoga and body/mind/energy work, I have learned a lot. Mainly about myself and a bit about human nature
AND WE NEED TO SLOW DOWN
We run and fight to reach the next goal and then we freeze. Our nervous system shuts us down. Creativity frowns...
Slow is not stagnant. It is not worthless. On the contrary. It’s a wave of constant energy that manifests in its due time
Like a wave 🌊 .
No more fast paste yoga vids from me
Instead: ocean, breath and the constant and steady flow they both inspire in us
I can watch the waves breaking for hours. Feeling my pulse. My rhythm. Finding it again. Dancing to the beat of Mother Earth
I study movement. Inside the body, mind and spirit. If you want to explore your own, I will soon be offering a series of workshops where we take time to stop, listen and reconnect to our authentic beat
STOP, DROP & LET GO
Stay tuned for more info..
