✋ STOP. Right this moment. After reading this – put down your phone, step away from your computer. Place your hand on your chest.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Listen for the magic: Do you feel your heart beating? Do you realize that in every one of your human brothers and sisters, in your beloved pets, in the birds in the trees and the bees in the fields and the fish in the sea... the same thing is happening.✨⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You feel it, don't you? That you are part of something big, something we are all in together. What a priveledge this is! Close your eyes and realize deeply the miracle of this truth: you are never alone.
Timing is everything — and yet allowing things to happen when they naturally do can be such a challenge. We’re often running around in this pressure cooker, looking for ways to be quicker and more efficient — we’re looking for ways to “save” time. We’re multi-tasking, we’re using services, we’re cutting corners. But we can’t outsource our emotional experiences. We have to show up for them and we have to find a way to be okay with knowing that sometimes things don’t happen on our preferred timeline. Tools like therapy are hugely beneficial in helping us identify patterns, cultivate coping skills, and learn how to be kinder to ourselves — but we can’t rush our healing. Besides, it’s often in the stickiest moments where we grow and learn the most about our own resilience. For anyone who’s out there struggling, keep going, we see you and promise that eventually the feelings will pass. #regram@cosmicchristine

Type YES if you think people are waking up from the matrix.
10 indicators that signal you may be living in the Matrix:
1. You spend most of your time devoted to paying off a mortgage rather than enjoying life.
2. You judge your success by the car you drive, the suburb you live in, and the size of the house you own.
3. You work in a job you don’t enjoy, thinking the money you earn will offset the misery of working in a job or career you are not passionate about.
4. You think that by taking medications your ills will be cured.
5. You watch the news on television and think this is the truth.
6. You conform with the status quo and never question why things are done.
7. You think eating genetically modified food and eating fruit and vegetables sprayed with pesticides is OK.
8. You think buying stuff will make you happy.
9. You think constant distraction through the media such as sport, trivial affairs, and celebrity gossip is news.
10. You’re more focused on your favourite sports team than concerned about the natural world and environment on which you depend for survival.
Thanks to @collective_evolution for these indicators.
“WHERE THE FIGHT BEGINS
When someone says something unkind to you, you may want to retaliate right away. That is where the fight begins. This habitual way of reacting creates a well-worn pathway in your brain. When you travel a neural pathway over and over again, it becomes a habit. Very often that pathway leads to anger, fear, or craving. One millisecond is enough for you to arrive at the same destination: anger and a desire to punish the person who has dared to make you suffer. The mind and the brain are plastic in nature. You can change your mind, your brain, and the way you think and feel. With practice, you can create new neural pathways that lead to understanding, compassion, love, and forgiveness. Mindfulness and insight can intervene, redirecting you down a new neural pathway.”

Burning Copal. Copal incense is a natural incense that is used to purify the energy of spaces, places and objects. One of the best copal uses is burning it to clear away all the negative energy and make positive changes. It is a great incense to use during the Full Blood Moon Eclipse for tonight/tomorrow, clearing the past and to begin a new chapter.
I first learned about Copal during my time at @pachamama . There, they burned copal during their daily meditations and during other mindful practices.
Since ancient times, Copal incense has been considered sacred to the people of Mexico, as well as South and Central America. Copal resin comes from trees in the Buresa family, which is considered a medicinal tree to the Mayas in southern Mexico
Copal incense is a good energy tool to use during meditations. -It is linked with the crown chakra, which helps deepen ones awareness and encourages pure thoughts during meditation. -Helps clear negative energies, connects us with the our higher consciousness and surrounds us with high vibrations.
-Removes energy blockages. -Helps you to shift ones mindset and helps in times of stress or depression It has a clean, light, woody scent that could be compared to pine or turpentine. It brings a very positive and loving energy that will fill your home with peaceful energies.
