Monday Mantra ✨
We can easily unfollow the Instagram influencers that make us feel negative by clicking a button, however in real life it is a little less simple. -
They say "we become a direct reflection of those who we spend our time with" so it is important to surround ourselves with like-minded positive people that make us feel motivated and supported. -
Make the changes necessary to live your best life, because we only get one 💫
We were alerted about a 5 month old baby, suffering from a cleft lip, cleft palate and severe malnutrition, weighing only 1.4 kilos.
As soon as our team heard the news, a nanny and our social worker (in photos)went to the family home, and realised the baby needed immediate care. They immediately took him to the hospital. We are currently covering his hospital costs while we discuss long term care solutions.
We are now reaching out for help to cover hospital fees. If you would like to help, please donate via our Paypal. Link in the bio towards this babies care.
"The mind is always looking for answers that the soul already knows thus synchronistic events are the vague awareness that our lives are divinely guided from the heart ~ and only the ego stands in the way this great inner wisdom:
There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that my life is divinely guided by my heart and when I fully surrender to love I enter a Unified Field of soul consciousness where there are no accidents. Synchronistic events are reminders of this universal truth." "There is now a scientific basis to explain how and why the heart affects mental clarity, creativity, emotional balance and personal effectiveness. Research indicates that the heart is far more than a simple pump. The heart is, in fact, a highly complex, self-organized information processing center with its own functional that communicates with and influences the cranial brain via the nervous system, hormonal system and other pathways. These influences profoundly affect brain function and most of the body's major organs, and ultimately determine the quality of life. " (It is now known that the signals the heart sends the brain can influence perception, emotional processing, and higher cognitive functions )".

When “life as we know it” isn’t, GRIEF comes in different shapes and sizes. We all mourn different kinds of loss, such as death, divorce, friendship, getting fired, failing or changing school, losing a pet or losing our figure.
1. At first, we use "denial" to avoid dealing with the pain. We’d say, "I’m fine. I’m over it.” Or “it's not true. It didn't happen. It's a prank." We become numb and start acting like it never happened. We struggle to lick our wounds in private and put on a poker face to mask our pain in public. This could take years or just months. It depends on YOU.
2. Then, "anger" hits hard. WHY ME At first, we get mad at God! We ask, "Where is God in all of this" Then our anger goes towards people. Anger is actually "pain" looking for someone to blame. Did the doctor cause the death Was it him/her that caused the divorce Is it my parents' "genes" or my pregnancy behind losing my figure/gaining weight
3. After blaming God for our loss we start "bargaining" with HIM. We plead with God, "If you spare me this time, I will give up drinking and devote time to charity."
4. After that, we sink into deep "depression." It finally dawns on us that our loss is real. We're not dreaming. We feel stuck!
5. Only then we could move toward the "acceptance" stage. This stage does not necessarily mean that ALL is ok. It simply means, this is my new norm and I will learn to live with it or do something about it in the case of weight gain, for instance. الحزن كالحداد له مراحل عِدّة خصوصاً عند فقدان عزيز أو وقوع طلاق أو خسارة صديق أو فقدان وظيفة أو حتى تغيير المدرسة. هن خمس مراحل : تبدأ في "الإنكار" و كأن شيئاً لم يكن و هذا نوع من التحدي و عدم الإعتراف بالهزيمة أو الإستسلام للبكاء. ثم "الغضب" و الثورة على القَدَر مستنكرين: ليش أنا؟ شو ذنبي؟ نلوم القَدَر أو الناس على حظنا العاثر. بعد ذلك نستدرك و نبدأ "بالمساومة" مع الله و نناجيه: يا رب أخرجني من هذا المأزق و أنا أعدك بأن أعتمر أو أصوم أو أذهب إلى الحج أو أن أتصدق على الفقراء ... و بعد ذلك ندخل في جو من "الكآبة" و نتذكر الفاجعة و كأنها حدثت الآن و نُدرك حينها أن اللي راح لن يرجع مثل الفقيد أو المال أو البيت أو السيارة أو حتى الزوج. و هنا تبدأ رحلة الشفاء حيث "نتقبل" واقعنا الجديد على مضض و نبدأ رحلة التأقلم
