Inner peace begins the moment you choose not to allow another person or event to control your emotions - Pema Chodron. #holisticunited #holisticquotes #holisticgram #peace
I sometimes ask people, “What is meditation?”
I receive an amazing range of responses. Those who have experience of meditating will often describe an activity that they do, a method, or a technique. They relate a way of concentrating on their breath, or reciting a mantra (a sacred sound, word,... see more or phrase), or visualizing energy and esoteric shapes and colours within their body, or contemplating love or a saint’s life. For some people, meditation means simply sitting still for days and weeks on end. Others place their body in yoga postures, or move while controlling their breath. Others will say meditation comes from cutting themselves off from distractions altogether, perhaps by holding their breath for long durations. Others have told me they meditate while running, or preparing tea, or resting their awareness in the gap between wakeful and sleep states.
The vast array of meditation techniques found among spiritual and contemplative traditions can sometimes seem daunting, especially if we want to begin our own meditation practice.

With the changing times, people had started opting for the things that were convenient and didn’t take much of their time. Disposable bags, bottles, and cups only increased the waste even if they made life easy.
However, there is a need to live the all-natural lifestyle once again. Keeping yourself... see more away from the chemicals will not only protect you from a wide range of diseases but also save you a lot of money. Ingredients present in the house make great cleansers, detergents, and skin-care products. Minimizing use of resources such as water and energy will promote a greener and cost-effective lifestyle.
Here are 7 easy swaps you can make for a greener house.

One of the many gifts I have received from being a psychic is an improved self-care routine. When I started seeing clients regularly, the holes in my self-care practice became more obvious. That’s because you need to be extremely and consistently grounded to be a successful healer.
Now, things like... see more getting enough rest and cutting down on stress have become not just goals but necessities. That’s because, like all healers, I want to show up powerful and balanced for my clients. The following are some tips I’ve picked up along the way to help fellow healers keep on top of their self-care.

The Symptoms of Higher ConsciousnessWhat does it mean to be awake? What are the characteristics of the state of ‘spiritual wakefulness’ or ‘enlightenment’?
I’ll summarise these characteristics or signs of spiritual awakening as they have emerged from my research. Then we’ll look at where... see more these characteristics come from—that is, try to identify how the state of wakefulness gives rise to them.
These characteristics of spiritual awakening are uniform. Typically, permanently awakened people experience all of these characteristics and usually at roughly the same degree of intensity. This uniformity is one of the most striking things to emerge from my research into the signs and symptoms of spiritual awakening and emphasizes the validity of seeing wakefulness as a distinct psychological state.
The only significant variation is in terms of the overall intensity of wakefulness. The continuum of states of wakefulness ranges from less intense to very intense. The intensity of the characteristics of wakefulness obviously varies according to the intensity of a person’s overall wakefulness. That is, if a person experiences a high intensity of wakefulness, they will obviously also experience a high level of well-being, a high degree of mental quietness, a very pronounced tendency toward altruism, a very pronounced lack of group identity, and so on. The reverse obviously applies to someone with a lower intensity of wakefulness.
It’s also worth noting that many of the characteristics I’m going to highlight are common to temporary spiritual awakening experiences, too.

Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better - Maya Angelou. #holisticunited #holisticgram #holisticquotes

Many thousands of studies demonstrating the benefits of mindfulness have now been published, to the point where mindfulness can almost seem like a miracle cure. The problem is that not all of these studies were conducted well enough to be taken seriously.
Daniel Goleman (author of “Emotional... see more Intelligence”) and University of Wisconsin neuroscientist Richard Davidson combed through thousands of studies and found that only one percent of them match the current gold standards for medical research. While we could rightly despair at the poor methodology of the 99 percent, we could instead focus on the four strongly confirmed findings that Goleman and Davidson have identified in the studies conducted using the soundest protocols.
In an article in the Harvard Business Review Goleman outlined those four confirmed benefits, which are: stronger focus, staying calmer under stress, better memory, and kindness. No doubt because he was writing for HBR, Goleman wrote about mindfulness mainly in terms of a tool for creating better workers for corporations — for example parsing kindness as “good corporate citizenship.” So I’d like to take those four benefits and write about them in a less corporate way, looking at how they can benefit us spiritually.

Self-improvement is the gospel of the wellness set, and we can learn a lot about personal growth when we’re able to get a glimpse into the ways in which elite fitness and yoga trainers master their mind-body connections. Yogi Tara Stiles, CrossFit star Kenny Santucci, celebrity personal trainer Todd... see more McCullough, and trainer and Ph.D. Shauna Harrison have refined their own custom movement methods over time and have found the routines that help them reach peak performance. The best part? They’re all different, which illustrates that there’s no one way to unlock your potential.
In case you missed it, here’s a summary of what we learned from the INFINITI Performance Project:

Change Starts Inside of YouI always notice a basic fault when I hear people talk about hoping for change in the world. It’s the idea that we see the notion of change as something happening outside of us, driven by some faceless group of elite scientists, inventors and leaders coming up with some... see more revolutionary idea that would set the world on a different course.
The fault with this notion is that it comes from the same mold which gave form to the problem in the first place–separation. We feel that we are separate from all the atrocities happening in different corners of the world; separate from shady global deals done in the interest of the few; separate from the marvelous work done by selfless peacekeepers and volunteers; separate from the bloodied hands of our previous generations and the problems of the next generations.
We think that we are helpless, innocent and powerless in the face of all this and that the change we expect ‘has’ to come from others, individuals, collectives or nations.

A few months ago I started seeing something new on the shelves of the skin care area: micellar water. It looks just like regular water, but there’s so much more to it. And it turns out that it’s not new!
It’s also no surprise that DIY micellar water is simple to make and has better ingredients... see more than the commercial stuff. We’ll examine these points soon, but first let’s learn more about this special water.
What is Micellar Water?
Micelles are tiny particles of oil suspended in water. It was produced in France many years ago, but with modern production of soaps and detergents, this was a product that went by the wayside for a while.
Many brands on the market contain all sorts of oils, pure water, fruit extracts, grapeseed oil, argan oil, plant extracts, and more.
The basic concept is that the oil particles are suspended in the water, therefore making it an excellent makeup remover. It is applied to a cotton ball and pressed onto your face – not rubbed. Makeup, dirt, oil, and anything else on your face is attracted to the oils in the micellar water while the water and extracts hydrate and nourish your skin.
So basically, micellar water is a make up remover, hydrating agent, toner, and moisturizer all in one.
