Les gros blocs de ciment qui permettent de traverser la rivière Kamo au niveau de son embranchement avec la rivière Takano, près de Demachiyanagi, sont un incontournable de toute visite à Kyoto.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Quoi Mais attends, on n'a pas de temps à perdre à batifoler près de la rivière ! On préfère visiter un temple de plus nous.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Faites comme vous voulez, on vous dit, mais prendre le temps de vous la couler douce quelques heures vous donnera l'occasion de vous imprégnez de l'ambiance unique qui règne à Kyoto. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Vivre slow, c'est aussi ralentir le rythme en voyage. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Un temple de plus ou de moins ne changera pas grand-chose à votre séjour à Kyoto, mais une matinée à flâner rêveusement au bord de la rivière, peut-être... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

A good and consistent mindfulness practice can change your life! I was listening to a great lecture by Buddhist nun, Jetsunma Tensin Palmo, where she talked about how our minds are like a river. We have thousands of thoughts each day, that just keep flowing along at quite a pace - that's just what the mind does. Most of us get caught up, and spend a bunch of our time drowning in the ceaseless flow of our minds, where we become victims to every little thought. She spoke about how a good mindfulness practice helps to pull us out of the overwhelm and sit us on the river bank, where we can safely observe the river as it does its thing.
Such great imagery! Imagine the space, calm and ease of being control on that river bank Being able to observe the chitter-chatter without being sucked in Feeling less scattered, and being able to more strategically focus your attention on what really matters Sign me up!
There are so many mindfulness practices out there, some aligned with ancient eastern philosophies, some more secular evidence-based approaches. It really doesn't matter which one you choose, just so long as it works for you and helps you to come into relationship with your thoughts. Because the way you speak to yourself in the privacy of your own mind, shapes your reality. So you'd better have a handle on what's going on up there between your ears!

...... The mystery of unconditional love – healing ourselves back to wholeness
Love is somewhat of a mystery
to most of us, because
it’s kind of intangible and undefinable.
It’s difficult to grasp with the intellectual mind. We can point to it, yet, it’s only when we experience it that it begins to fully make sense.
To truly love, we have to let go, feel beyond the words and experience it through the soul.
There’s a formlessness to it,
yet when it infuses into us,
it becomes an evolutionary catalyst for transformation and infusion of light.
Imagine for a moment that our eyes meet. We connect. Souls connect.
The density of our physical, emotional and mental bodies, begin to momentarily fall away.
There’s just love.
Pure, unconditional love.
Not seeking – it just is. It’s all accepting. Without judgement it cuts through our inhibitions and limitations.
Together, for just a moment, we’ve effortlessly touched true, unconditional love.
We’ve momentarily embodied the unconditional love that happens naturally when we transcend the limitations of the body and mind and connect,
soul to soul.

Part 4: The dreaming state of consciousness
Also called as Taijasa. In Om, the flourish at the confluence of the waking state & deep sleep state is the representation of the dream state.
In Taijasa we turn inwards and experience the manifestation of unfulfilled desires. We get access to this storehouse of all our karma, desires, experiences, etc, which comes to life when we sleep.
It is said that if one can control the dreaming state, she can fulfil all her desires, thus leading to more calm & objectivity in the waking state. Apparently not many of us have established the link between dreaming & waking, and therefore forget all about the gratified desires and continue to live unsatisfied lives.

Yesterday’s breakfast. I love mango and never thought that a combo with avo and salmon will be this amazing. Yum
Včerajšie raňajky. Milujem Mango a nikdy som si nemyslela, že v kombinacii s lososom a avokádom to bude takéto chutné. Akože ťažko žrateľné.
And know that there is no later. Can you be content right now Why not We need goals and dreams and wants and desires, but there is a difference between living always in the future and in eternal anxiety, and eternal peace. It doesn’t have to be one or the other. You can be happy now and expect to be happy later.
If you don’t have it all now, you may be thinking that “once I have it, I’ll really be proud of myself. I’ll finally feel the way I want about myself. I’ll show the world who I am and everyone will see my true self.” But no, this thought is backwards because the thought must come before the material. You must be proud of yourself in order to get the things you are thinking would make you proud. You must have the mentality of success and love for who you are with all that you have and all that you do in order to feel that way in the future. Because success attracts success. A mindset of lack of who you are now does not attract success. Love and acceptance is the only thing that will attract love acceptance for yourself in the future. The reason is that the only time to do anything is now. Creation happens only in this moment. There is no need to wait. If you want in the future, you have to have it now.
Material things come from those who need them. If you want material, be someone who would need the material. There’s no need to ask god for them. Asking won’t work. Asking implies that you don’t have it. If the only time to do is this instant, then the only time to possess material is now. You don’t physically have the material in your proximity, but what you must do is cultivate the feeling of being in possession of material. Then it will come to you because you are the kind of person who needs it. It does not work that you need the material to be the person. Manifestation always starts with the self, with the source.
Acceptance is the key. You’re not so bad. In fact, you’re all you’ve got. Practice thinking about five good things you did today. Be thankful to yourself for doing them. Be proud. Know that only you are the source of you’re supply. Be at peace now, it’s ok, we give you permission. Save the suppression for later.
Say it with me: “I Love My Life!!!” 😍
Heart on your sleeve
Where two ancient traditions overlap to help me with my depression. The mindful movement of the heart chakra to maintain an open posture brings an open and more loving positive attitude. The traditional buddhist practice of metta brings an open heartedness which challenges the closed off isolation which makes depression so powerful.
Both practices are out of place in our consumerist and competitive capitalist culture. Which suggests they are probably bang on the money!! Big up your heart ♥️ #compassion
🙋🏾What are you truly LIVING for! Are you BOLD about it✊🏾

Try starting your day by listing 3 things you are grateful / thankful for: 🙏🏻 #actiontohappiness #selfcare #mindfulness #lifecoach #lifecoaching #youthlifecoach #teenlifecoach
why do it 🤔
From ancient scriptures to the latest science, gratitude is known to be good for us and those around us. Yet it isn't always our automatic response and we often take the good things in our lives for granted. So we have to consciously learn to get into the habit of being grateful.
Science is showing that gratitude is important for how good we feel psychologically and socially. It increases how much positive emotion we feel and decreases negative emotion. It raises our overall satisfaction with life and helps us have an overall positive outlook. It has also been shown to reduce health complaints and help us cope with difficulties. It even seems to reduce the importance we place on material goods. And contrary to what we may think, it also appears that it could increase our ability to achieve our goals.
Why does it work We have a natural focus on what goes wrong in our daily lives often going over and over these things in our head. We are quick to notice even the smallest of problems, yet we rarely spend any time at all dwelling on the good things. Things that brought us a quick smile or felt good are all to often forgotten or perhaps not even noticed in the first place.
The power social media has on our mental health is increasing!
Friend request, likes, shares, emojis, filters etc. All these wonderful features have created a world of their own. ————————————————————————
I was recently in a session and one of my teenage patients said to me, “summer is boring for me... everyone is on holiday the WHOLE summer except me.” I thought to myself... hmmm.... I want to be on holdiay ALL summer too. How has EVERYONES parents afforded a 6-8 week holdiay getaway ALL summer! I questioned the evidence for this It made my patient think... well maybe not all summer, but Facebook makes it look that way. #BINGO #facebook makes a lot of things “appear” a certain way, which are not necessarily true.
@we reworked her thoughts and gave her a summer activity to do... investigations. She was pleased!! _______________________________________________________
Most people don’t pose their wackiest looking photos, or unflattering angels; their depression, anxiety, family drama, miscarriages, cheating partners or illneses on social media. Some do, but most do not. People want to appear well put together. They share untruths, which effect all of us on some level. ————————————————————————-
Don’t let social media determine your sunshine.

🌎 If there’s one thing for certain, it’s that life is never one smooth journey. Whether it’s saving for the rainy days, or training for the battles to come; preparation is key for when the worst rears its ugly head.
🌟 And when it does, double down on the things that matter the most and ride along with it, rather than against it, for the light on the other side of the tunnel awaits you. The darkness is all part of the journey. ✨
Share this with someone you know who is going through a tough time, and let them know life’s treasures does not come without any challenges 💥

Friendship first/Check your attitude (at the door). Here I'm playing with a redundant saying, turning it around to see if it makes more sense this way. What are your thoughts on this
Freedom. This is a little snippet of yesterday’s self practice. I’d just done an hours CrossFit, taught an hour of yoga and I craved some movement for myself. I stepped onto my mat with no agenda and let me body and breath guide me. My body felt more free than it has for a while.
Recently I’ve felt heavy and weighty, I’ve lacked inspiration and my flows have been bitty and messy. While this isn’t completely inspired, I felt a lot more freedom in my breath and body and movement came easier and more free. This is why I love yoga. It never leaves me. It’s always there when I need it and my body and breath always know what I need at any given time ♥️🧘♀️ #myyoga #mindfulnovement #mindbodybreath #movement
