The simplest way to see more blue in your life would be to look up at the sky. What else can you do?
In his book “Blue Mind,” Wallace J. Nichols quotes a neurosurgeon, Amir Vokshoor, who states “dues to its specific wavelength, the color blue is known to exert a calming, relaxing, yet energizing effect and thus stimulate a positive emotional response. In fact, the arousal mechanism stimulated by blue’s wavelengths correlates to the release of neurotransmitters thought to be associated with feelings of euphoria, joy, reward, and wellness related to the effects of dopamine.” #wellness#bluemind#beachtherapy#thecolorblue#lookup#bluesky#walkandtalktherapy#joy#calm#energized#dopamine#neurotransmitters
Eye Pillows for Christmas 🎄 .
NEW Authentic Yoga product launching for Christmas .... starting with eye pillows for children made by the mummy of 2 of my little yogis 🧘🏻♀️🧘🏻♂️ @sewkindni. My thoughts behind this are to encourage the children to bring some of the techniques we learn in yoga class home, to help them relax and hopefully also improve sleep habits by becoming a part of their bedtime routine. We are establishing healthy habits early that they can take forward off the mat and into everyday life for years to come 😴 .
Eye pillows are an important part of Authentic Yoga relaxation, yoga nidra, savasana- the calm and stillness at the end of class, so the children are familiar with them 💗
Children’s Eye Pillows in a selection of pretty patterned fabrics will be available to order from this weekend for £6- the ideal little stocking filler or Secret Santa present. Why not give a gift this year to help with a child’s wellbeing? 🎅🏼 🎁
Passiflora incarnata (Passionflower)
Passionflower is a perennial herb, it’s been used for centuries as a relaxing herb.
We grow Passionflower on our organic herb farm. This is a picture off the farm from earlier this summer. •
We use Passionflower in our Fall Asleep natural sleep aid formula.
On speaking about the difficulty of getting out of the rut of misery...
‘The first thing is that nobody is holding you there, it is you who has decided to remain in the prison of misery. Nobody holds anybody. A man who is ready to get out of it, can get out of it of it right this very moment. Nobody else is responsible. If one is miserable, one is responsible, but a miserable person never accepts responsibility-that is his way of remaining miserable. He says “somebody else’s make me miserable”. If somebody else is making you miserable naturally, what can you do? If you are making yourself miserable, something can be done… Something can be done immediately. Then it is within your hands to be or not to be miserable. So people go on throwing the responsibility-sometimes on the wife, sometimes on the husband, sometimes on the family, sometimes on the conditioning, the childhood, the mother or father, but they always going to throwing. The names are different but the trick is the same. A man really becomes a man when he acceots total responsibility-he is responsible for whatsoever he is, this is the first courage, the greatest courage’.
-Osho ‘Courage: The joy of living dangerously’.
This idea can take some time to accept but when we accept it, we gain complete freedom and control over our lives! ☯️
Are you holding yourself in misery?
I often talk about how meditation has provided me immeasurable benefits over the few short years I’ve been practicing 🙏 I talk about accessing the stillness, to allowing space in between thoughts and how the simple act of breathing and letting go can transition one from a stressed state to a relaxed, peaceful one. Leave all the excuses of not having time, nowhere to do it and religious objections behind and #justdoit - I promise that if you’re consistent and patient, every aspect of your life will change for the better...and will keep getting better every day! Just 15-30 minutes a day. Imagine that! #meditate#calm#breathing#vippassana#mind#monkeymind
She lights our life, each day we rise together.
Always in her own way, she lights the way.
No matter what the day, through it all she rises and stands tall.
Sometimes to be seen for all her beauty, sometimes rising never to be seen.
From this we learn, a virtuosity we should yearn.
To no matter what our environment, our circumstances may present.
We presently always stay true and rise.
Nature we have much to learn from, reflecting a truth and power to the same place our souls came from.
You are the light, each day we rise together 💫
