“We can never understand this higher order through thinking about it because whatever we think about is just content; whereas, the higher order emanates from the formless realm of consciousness, from universal intelligence. But we can glimpse it, and more than that, align ourselves with it, which means be conscious participants in the unfolding of that higher purpose. Only if we are still enough inside and the noise of thinking subsides can we become aware that there is a hidden harmony here, a sacredness, a higher order in which everything has a perfect place and could not be other than what it is and the way it is.” Eckhart Tolle ✨🙌🏻✨ . . . #now #beherenow #thepowerofnow #awakening #lifepurpose #meditation #bepresent #lifeisnow #interconnected #weareone #higherconsciousness #elevate

I am so over the moon excited that @reynoldsurvivor and I are going to be attending a @gurusinghyogi class at @yogawestla when we are in LA in August! 🙏 I first heard Guru Singh on the @richroll podcast and immediately felt at ease just hearing the joy and sweetness in his voice and loved all that he had to say. I felt intrigued to read his book Buried Treasures and I absolutely LOVED it. That book remains my favorite one out of the 53 books I read last year! I wanted more so I started listening to his podcast, his beautiful music and taking his online classes and soon his lectures, lessons, music and voice became like home...from afar. Guru Singh, my hubby and I can’t wait to meet you in person and give you a big, giant hug! We feel so blessed to get this opportunity to be in your presence. Wahe Guru!! ✨💗✨ . . . #gurusinghyogi #waheguru #yoga #kundalini #meditation #loveandlight #yogawest #westcoastfamily #belove #alwayslearning #gurusingh

Happy Birthday to His Holiness The @dalailama - you are a beautiful, kind, wonderful inspiration to the world! May we all strive to be as kind and compassionate. 🙏 “This is my true religion, my simple faith. In this sense, there is no need for temple or church, for mosque or synagogue, no need for complicated philosophy, doctrine, or dogma. Our own heart, our own mind, is the temple. The doctrine is compassion. 🙏 May I become at all times, both now and forever A protector for those without protection A guide for those who have lost their way A ship for those with oceans to cross A bridge for those with rivers to cross A sanctuary for those in danger A lamp for those without light A place of refuge for those who lack shelter And a servant to all in need. 🙏 . . . #buddhist #buddhism #dalailama #happybirthday #kindness #compassion #love #spirituality #buddhistmonk #spiritualpath #hisholiness #teachkindness #belove #bekind

There is so much chaos, violence and suffering all over the world every single day from our borders to inner cities, countries at war,guns in schools, inequality,human trafficking and in our food systems’ torturous factory farms to the ignorance is bliss and disconnection on our plates. Everyday seems to contain shocking news and creates an overwhelming sense of helplessness.I’m sure we are all feeling this on so many levels. • Meditation is so important...our lives are hectic and we are flooded with information. It is important to sit quietly to filter and process for peace of mind, but also to dive in deep to know your truest self; to awaken;know how you feel about it all and become someone that can do something about it. We all have the power to contribute to a more peaceful planet. • My ultimate motivation in my meditation each day is to cultivate deep love and compassion for all beings, human and non-human, to have greater awareness of our divine connection to all beings, human and non-human; to fully awaken to be of greater service to mankind, our beautiful planet and all of God’s creatures. 🙏 It is my deepest prayer to be so full of love and compassion that I just radiate that into healing all of the world’s suffering and that this practice helps me to find solutions to create more peace, love and harmony. 🙏 MEDITATION: Make a noble wish from deep in your heart.Think of your heart as a brilliant sun that is radiating in all directions. It is warming your heart, your body, and your mind. Feel your overflowing heart flowering and blossoming like a sunflower.Visualize this golden,glowing,warning sun in your heart, radiating out in all directions at once. Love unconditionally, including yourself. Forgive yourself, accept yourself, embrace yourself. Open yourself to give and receive love. Soften. Share the blessings. 🙏 May all beings have happiness and the cause of happiness. May all beings remain free from suffering and the cause of suffering. May all beings remain unseparated from the sacred joy and happiness that is totally free from sorrow. May all beings come to rest in the boundless and all-inclusive equanimity that is beyond attachment and aversion.

Looking forward to SUP’n on Town Lake tonight with my hubs and some friends! I find that connecting with the energy of the Moon and aligning with nature is a great way to hone in on your own energy state and reflect on goals mindfully to reset for the month ahead. 😊 Prepare yourself, this June Full Moon is said to come with some heaviness and intensity. Staying grounded and present in the moment is going to really help carry us through the energies. Taking one step at a time, and one moment at a time is really the only way we can stay calm, cool, and collected when things get tough. 🌝 Grounded, stable, and hard working are key words for this Full Moon, and this is exactly what we will need to embrace under its energy.

“Self-Realization is not a static state or the end of the journey. Awakening is the process that continues to deepen and stabilize over months,years, and decades, giving us the opportunity to continue to hone our insight. In every moment and every experience, we have a choice to become more nonviolent and more truthful, cling less to our habitual patterns, surrender more to to the Divine, remain vigilant and persevere on this journey, remain cognizant of our true nature of wholeness, remain free from the bonds of language, and open to the bliss of the here and now. Non-dual insight combined with the cultivation of these values catapults is from mundane existence to that of extraordinary beauty in our ordinary lives.” - Kavitha M.

I get this one a lot...”eating meat or being Vegan is a personal choice & Vegans are always forcing their personal choice on meat eaters.” I could go off on this one! 🌱 1 - You’re right...it is a choice, but choosing to eat meat is affecting our oceans, our rainforests, our soil, water, air, wild and domesticated animals, starving nations and the future of life on this planet. The future of our entire species is affected by your choice to eat meat, so yes, what you eat is everyone’s business! As a citizen of this planet, it is my duty to protect it and speaking out against the consumption of meat is the #1 way to protect our home. 🌱 2 - Your choice of eating meat is shoved in the face of Vegans all day, everyday, everywhere...from fast food restaurants on every corner, having to smell the cooking of bacon, burgers, bbq wafting into the air out of restaurants everywhere; walking thru grocery stores, looking at every single menu in restaurants, surrounded by meat and dairy in coffee shops; advertising on billboards, magazines, movies, commercials, branded trucks; driving past slaughter trucks on freeways full of animals. Meat consumption is EVERYWHERE! Your choice is shoved in our face everyday, so why are YOU the one to be so offended when a Vegan tries to offer an opportunity for you to explore a healthier food choice...a non-offensive VEGETABLE choice, a choice of life over death?! 🌱 3 - Vegans are sensitive to this matter of choice and can become emotional about it because the choice involves the murdering of BILLIONS of sentient beings that want to live & enjoy life just like me and you and they aren’t able to speak up for themselves to get you to change your mind. We are also sensitive because of the above reasons...we love our planet, our oceans, our trees, our bodies & health and the existence of humanity. The choice matters and we simply just give a fuck...and you should to. 🌱 Veganism - eating vegetables, fruit, beans, legumes and grains is not an “extreme” choice...it is a conscious choice made out of love, kindness and compassion for all beings and the sustainability of earth. The choice to eat meat is based solely on the tastebuds! Choose love!

This “Dreamy Green Bowl” from The Plant Power Way is dreamy! This may be one of my new favorite go-to’s! 🌱💪🏻 BOWL: - 1 1/4 bunches of Kale (chopped into ribbons) - 2 Carrots (shaved into ribbons) - 1 cup Quinoa - 1 can Chick Peas - 1 1/4 cup Cilantro (chopped) *chop veggies and put in a large bowl. Cook quinoa and add to bowl (heat from quinoa will lightly steam kale). Add chick peas and cilantro. Stir together & add dressing. TAHINI DRESSING: - 2 tsps fresh ginger - 1 1/2 garlic cloves - 2 tsps Apple cider vinegar - 1 Tbsp + 2 tsps Soy Sauce/Tamari - 1/2 cup Tahini - 3/4 cup water *blend in a food processor and pour over bowl. Stir well. ENJOY for breakfast, lunch or dinner - it’s that yummy! ✌🏻💗🌱 . . . #plantbased #plantpower #govegan #eatyourgreens #veganfortheanimals #veganfortheplanet #veganislove #vegan #peacebeginsonyourplate #chickpeas #kale #ginger #applecidervinegar #healthyfood #veganlunch #vegandinner #belove #eatyourveggies

Oh my goodness, this is just heartbreaking! I love Anthony Bourdain! I can’t believe the world lost such a talented & authentic soul today...once again to depression & addiction! • He is someone I’ve always thought had the BEST life...successful Chef and author turned TV host, getting to travel the world and experience food & culture as his job - what a dream! • I knew he struggled with alcohol & drug addiction in the past. It’s just so sad to see so many wonderful people suffer such deep depression and addiction and struggle so much that you can’t take anymore of what appears to be a wonderfully perfect life to outsiders. • I attended his live “standup” show a couple of years ago and absolutely loved getting to sit with him and experience his rawness, his humor & just how real he was. He was hysterical. • I’m in shock & heartbroken for his family, those that were close to him & for all of us that love him so very much even though we’ve never even met! RIP Chef...you will be missed! 😪🙏💗 .

I just finished reading this book, The Longevity Diet by Valter Longo. I listened to him on the @richroll podcast and was super interested to learn more about everything he has culminated over his 25 years of research and comprehensive scientific lab and clinical studies regarding how to live not only longer, but healthier, active and vibrantly...as well as how to reverse and prevent age related diseases (heart, diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer’s, etc) and what his fasting technique was all about. 🌱 No surprise, but his scientifically proven plan to live a longer, healthier more vibrant, disease-free life is a PLANT BASED DIET + Fasting (FMD). 🌱 I highly recommend reading this book! He is not presenting this information from an animal welfare advocacy at all but rather from proven scientific data backed by years of clinical study. The proof is here! The “fountain of youth” is in the plants not in the animal proteins! 🌱 If you know of anyone struggling with these life-threatening diseases, get them a copy of this book! Change your diet, change your life! 🌱👊🏻 . . . #plantbased #plantpowered #plantstrong #longevity #fountainofyouth #livelong #behealthybehappy #nutrition #nomeatathlete #plants #eatyourgreens #eatyourbeans #richroll #valterlongo #fasting

We started this beautiful Sunday morning off with Day 1 of our 2 Day Meditation Workshop at @austinboxingbabes - we dove right into what meditation is, why it’s important, the benefits, the how to’s and the four states of consciousness. Then they got to learn two different types of meditations and two different breathing exercises and then of course we practiced, practiced, practiced. I think this crew is ready to rock their week with some handy tools to start their home meditation practice! I’m looking forward to what next Sunday has in store for these zen masters! ✨ “The mind is capable of growth and improvement and may be trained. The mind has the power to evolve toward wisdom and a mode of being (in fact its own true nature - “Bodhicitta” - the awakened mind) that utterly transcends duality.” - Shantideva, The Way of the Bodhisattva ✨🥊🙏✨ . . . #meditate #meditation #mindtraining #athletes #boxing #austinboxingbabes #bestill #bodhisattva #bodhicitta #meditateinaustin #justbreathe #meditationteacher #breathislife #goodvibes #clearmind

When one is in a state of mindfulness (an unrushed, non-judgmental, still mind), one realizes that one is being guided to all the right decisions, saying the right things, being in the right places at the right time as well as being deterred from what one should NOT do - a mindful mind is aware that everything seems to be falling into place. • The opposite of this, when one is not mindful (and is rushed, judgmental and fearful) according to Buddhism, is “wasted effort.” • A still mind results in meaningful actions. To do this, we must eliminate fear and judgement and to do this, we must first learn to sit with ourselves. • Join me this Sunday for some mind training at @austinboxingbabes 9am-11am. The universe is waiting to surrender to your hearts greatest desires...all you have to do is learn to still the mind! • www.austinboxingbabes.com ✨🙏✨ . . . #meditate #meditation #surrender #bestill #stillmind #bequiet #mindfulness #mindtraining #meditateinaustin #meditationteacher #austinboxingbabes #laotzu #buddhism #beherenow

Happy Saka Dawa or Happy Vesak Day! In the Tibetan and Thai Buddhist traditions, today marks the celebration of the Buddha’s Birth, Enlightenment, and Paranirvana, celebrated on the Full Moon. Today marks one of the holiest days for Buddhists. 🙏 During this month, the merits of good deeds are said to be multiplied one hundred million times. Some good deeds to consider are: 1) refraining from eating meat, 2) freeing captive animals, 3) giving money/food/clothing/assistance to those in need, 4) donating to a monastery or Buddhist temple...or even as simple as avoiding negative thoughts and doing something nice. Great time to cleanse your karma and become inspired with good intentions of compassion and kindness. 🙏 For as long as space endures and for as long as living beings remain, until then may I, too, abide to dispel the misery of the world. - Shantideva, The Way of the Bodhisattva ✨🙏✨ . . . #buddha #buddhist #buddhism #vesak #sakadawa #enlightenment #ilovebuddha #bodhisattva #compassion #kindnessiseverything

We are trying outa practice of what I like to call “Golden Hour” for summer afternoons so that everyone has some down time to refresh and regroup. I’m starting with 15 minutes for the kids (for the whole process) and will slowly start increasing and hope to be at an hour by end of summer! ✨ STEP 1: The Golden Hour begins with Noble Silence. During this time, we only speak if it is very important, otherwise we stay quiet and respectful of each other and the quiet space. If you do talk, only a gentle whisper. This is so opposite of their regular voices that they actually think it’s fun to be this quiet! • STEP 2: Create your sacred space. We drew the curtains closed, lit candles & incense and set the room up like my regular meditation space. The kids each wanted 2 cushions pushed together to make a long relax space & so they could lay down and of course Lulu wanted a soft blanket to make hers as cozy as possible. They were both totally into helping me set the space. • STEP 2: Begin with a prayer. We each gave our gratitudes. Then I played a song on the Harmonium that the kids also knew, so we all sang together - which totally helped them settle in. They were a bit wiggly before this. You don’t have to play an instrument, but I do think singing together is important - the children really love singing and it’s calming for all of our souls. Any sweet song will do, doesn’t have to be a chant. • STEP 3: Breathing. We did a 10-1 Breathing exercise. Count inhales & exhales from 10-1...each breath should be about 6 seconds long in and 6 seconds out (inhale 10, exhale 10, inhale 9, exhale 9, etc). I think the counting really helped the kids stay focused on their breath. This totally calmed them down completely out of their wiggles...and of course soothes YOU as well. • STEP 4: Quiet Time (meditation) This is when you tell the kids we are now going into our quiet time for a few minutes (2-5 minutes). Sit as still as you can and stay focused on your breath - they like to put their hands on their bellies and focus on their belly rising and falling. All together this whole process can be about 15 min, gradually getting up to 30 min...but the whole hour is noble silence!

MEDITATION WORKS: • reduces stress • calms central nervous system • lowers blood pressure • improves heart function • reduces/eliminates symptoms of depression and anxiety • increases awareness • increases optimism • increases emotional intelligence • reduces inflammation and pain • boosts immune system • improves breathing quality & lung capacity • alleviates symptoms of chronic health issues • reduces/eliminates symptoms of ADHD - gain better focus, precision and clarity of mind • cultivates greater compassion and empathy for others • increases joy & happiness • helps you to develop a more meaningful life ✨ The list goes on and on, but you really can’t understand all of this until you DO IT YOURSELF!! ✨ I share this because Meditation has had a tremendously positive affect on me and my family and I am someone who once upon a time thought that “I could never / would never meditate.” I was a busy body, restless legs, restless mind, no time, ADHD and didn’t even know how to begin. I never imagined sitting still and quiet for 30 minutes much less an hour and now I meditate multiple times a day and could sit for hours!! I LOVE meditating and all the powerful & beautiful benefits, experiences and struggles that come with it! I couldn’t imagine my life without a daily practice and I honestly wonder how I survived all those years before. ✨ Perhaps you’re ready to tap into the wonders of meditation. Perhaps you’re finally ready to give it a shot and don’t know where to start. Well, I am here to help you! Join me at @austinboxingbabes for 2 Sundays, 6/3 & 6/10 9am-11am and learn all about Meditation and how to get your own daily practice started. Cost is only $99 or $50 for members.

We were just cruising along to school today and I look back and see Lochlynn deep in thought with prayer hands and snapped this picture. When she opened her eyes, I sweetly asked her what she was doing back there. ✨ She said “I’m sending love to God.” ✨ I told her how sweet that was and her next response with a bit of excitement was... ✨ “I love God and when I send love, I feel love back, right from God!” ✨🙏✨ Sweet baby girl naturally embodies love and light and understands divine connection. May she forever keep her heart cracked wide open and continue to explore the beautiful relationship with the Creator. ✨🙏✨ . . . #godislove #prayer #sendinglove #loveandlight #embodiedliving #toddlerlife #tinyyogi #spiritualpath #tinytoepf

Another great episode on the @richroll Podcast today with Dr Valter Longo!! 🌱 Dr. Longo is one of the worlds leading authorities on longevity & has dedicated the last 30+ years to studying what not only can prolong your lifespan but also how live as vibrantly and energetically as possible for as long as possible. 🌱 “Dr. Longo has created a specific diet, fasting, and lifestyle protocols scientifically proven to activate stem cells; promote organ regeneration and rejuvenation; reduce the risk for diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer’s and heart disease; and ultimately extend that which we all seek: lifespan. 🌱 This is a powerful conversation about what promotes longevity and what undermines it. It's exploration of the benefits of fasting and the science that supports it. And it's a primer on the optimal lifestyle protocols you can employ in your every day life to live well.” 🌱 In short, in case you don’t listen to it (which I highly recommend doing), he suggests a whole food, plant based Vegan diet, low sugar, good fat (avocado, nuts, etc) with 5 days FMD fasting - fasting mimicking diet 3 or 4 times a year. 🌱 He does suggest adding fish into your diet after the age of 65 due to changes in your dietary needs as you age. Not sure how I feel about promoting that from an ethical stance or for our oceans/planet but worth learning about in regards to living a long, healthy, vibrant life! 🌱 I’m definitely going to get his book The Longevity Diet to learn more...specifically interested in learning about FMD fasting. I’ve really felt great with the fasting experiences I’ve tried this past year or do. 🌱 Super interesting as always on the RRP - check it out! ✌🏻💗🌱 . . . #plantbased #plantpower #richroll #drvalterlongo #vibrant #agegracefully #aging #longevity #fasting #vegan #eatvegan #ditchdairy #longlife #happyandhealthy

The Art of Meditation is a great read whether you have a steady practice or are just trying to get started. Buddhist Monk, Matthieu Ricard has combined his talents of philosopher and scientist to explain what meditation is and how and why to meditate. He has made this info super accessible to anyone! The biggest takeaway is that meditation really requires a DAILY practice! Agree, agree! ✨ How’s your meditation practice?! Have you committed to tapping into your optimal self; to master your mind; to cultivate deep love and boundless compassion? What’s holding you back? ✨ “The ultimate reason for meditating is to transform ourselves in order to be better able to transform the world or, to put it another way, to transform ourselves so we can become better human beings in order to serve others in a wiser more efficient way. It gives your life the noblest possible meaning.” - Matthieu Ricard ✨🙏✨ . . . #meditate #meditation #meditateeverydamnday #meditationteacher #alwaysreading #alwayslearning #buddhist #buddhistmeditation #theartofmeditation #ilovetomeditate #justbteathe #awareness #insight #higherconsciousness #loveandlight #clearmind #compassion

#Repost @moby with @get_repost ・・・ It amazes me, in a bad way, that so many ‘religious’ people are either indifferent to or dismissive of animal suffering. As the only creatures who WERE kicked out of the garden of eden you’d think that humans would have a bit more respect and concern for animals, who are God’s creation and live in a state of inherent grace. “Dominion” doesn’t mean to dominate, it means to treat in a divine manner. “I desire mercy, and not sacrifice” Hosea 6:6. I’m not a conventional Christian, but I do know that nowhere in the old and new testaments does god encourage people to torture animals or turn a blind eye to suffering. Maybe respect and reverence for all of Gods creation should be a central part of Christian, Jewish, and Muslim worship.
