  • LA FOI 
Lorsqu'on parle de foi, certaines personnes s'imaginent automatiquement que nous parlons de religion. 
La foi ne fait partie d'aucun dogme, ni d'aucune religion.

La foi c'est le souffle sur tes ailes, 
C'est la confiance qui brûle en ton cœur, 
C'est la petite voix qui te guide sur ton chemin,
C'est la Lumière qui brille en ton Âme;

La foi c'est l'Amour que tu offres à tes rêves.
C'est la compassion que tu as pour toi et pour les autres.
C'est le sourire que tu portes sur tes lèvres.

La foi c'est lorsque tu n'essaies pas de contrôler les évènements dans ta vie.
C'est quand tu lâches prise et vas de l'avant.

La foi c'est quand tu tends l'oreille aux murmures des Anges,
À l'énergie qui vibre en toi,
À la Source, 
À la Terre-Mère,
À ces instants de plénitude.

La foi c'est quand tu vis l'instant présent et que tu l'apprécies pleinement.

La foi, c'est quand tu es reconnaissant de ta vie,
De chaque moment de ton existence,
De l'air que tu respires, 
Du soleil sur ta peau,
De la nourriture dans ton assiette, 
Et du toit sur ta tête.
La foi c'est un ensemble,
Et non une frontière ni un obstacle.

La foi c'est toi et c'est moi. 
Karine Malenfant

  • Funny that this memory (on the left) should pop up today since I led a Wellness workshop today for female inmates at the Virginia Correctional Center for Women (on the right - aka prison, aka, apparently, the “State Industrial Farm for Women” back in the day 😳).
•
I presented/taught as part of a women’s empowerment program. And the focus was on how mindfulness-based practices (yoga, meditation & yoga nidra) can support these women both while incarcerated and when they are back out.
•
I started volunteering at the city jail maybe 5ish years ago, took a hiatus after the birth of my 3rd baby, and, serendipitously, found myself in front of a room full of 100+ women today, teaching they only thing I can anymore: how to use awareness/consciousness to cut through the material of our minds (history, conditioning, beliefs) so that we might experience the truth of who and what we are.
•
After some teaching about the benefits for the body, how our nervous systems work in relationship to our minds, etc, I led the ladies through some basic standing poses, movements in their bodies to awaken their attention inside of their bodies, we then did a seated yoga nidra followed by a brief meditation - so they could have an experience of themselves unencumbered by their minds. It is only through direct experience that once can truly learn.
•
During the Q&A one woman said she had heard that meditation can change your brain and asked if that was true. We talked about neuroplasticity, about how our environment and experiences create our conditioning and about how our conditioning shapes our reality. AND, most importantly, that we have the capacity to, over time, change the habits of the mind, to change the actual architecture of our minds, thoughts, and beliefs. THAT is empowerment in the greatest sense of the word.
•
I feel so blessed and grateful to have been taught this work and to be able to share it. And glad the path has found me once again....

  • Move more!!

Move because you can!

Move because one day you won’t be able to!
.
Move because when that day comes you’ll have wished you didn’t spend so much time doing sweet FA. .
You’ve been shaken down.

  • Ways to cultivate inner peace -

1. Patience - with other people
2. Patience - with circumstances outside of our control
3. Patience with self

The more you focus on becoming patient and kind toward yourself, the easier it becomes to be patient with others. Being patient has helped me incredibly with my own inner peace 💖 As a kid I was incredibly impatient and absolutely hated waiting for anyone or anything, so like many things it's a skill that can be developed.

Patience really is a virtue ~☆

NEAPOLITAN ICE CREAM flavoured muscle love shake WITHOUT the harmful sugar and calories of ice cream! BOOM, BABY! Neapolitan is my all time favorite ice cream and even though I may have some once in a while its not a regular thing so finding a healthy option that tastes like it is DA BOMB!!!

  • Pure Presence 
A religious person seeks transcendence from  the world using their sense faculties and the conceptual aspect of the mind - relying on sacred books, external teachers, institutions and even substances for an awakening that perhaps will happen one day, or sometime after death, or another promised place or realm. 
The mind of realization experiences the world of the sense faculties as Illusory in the here and now, and is therefore free of dualistic ignorance, desire, and hostility. The primordial mind is it’s own teacher and does not seek outside of itself for its own liberation.

The intrinsic nature of mind is always present. The idea that you are or have a body or that you have a mind, thoughts, emotions, with a personal history and a projective personal future to transcend are symptoms of bewilderment and dualistic confusion.

Not in the future, your nature is pure awareness now, vast like a still ocean, timeless and beyond concept. There is no path to take you to the place that you already are. The appearance of an external book or teacher may point to the sacred, but what is realized cannot be embodied in a form or in the mind, instead Pure Awareness realizes that all forms, the body, the conceptual mind, the sacred texts and teachers are its own reflection. You will never realize Pure Awareness, it is Awareness that awakens and realizes that you are not separate, that you and every other being are its own sacred reflection.

  • Я абсолютно и безгранично влюблена в этот инструмент 🥰

С тех пор, как медитацией стал начинаться абсолютно каждый мой день - моя жизнь изменилась до неузнаваемости. Мои осознанность, открытость, чувственность, рациональность, широта мысли и восприятия, возможности увеличились в геометрической прогрессии. Я наслаждаюсь тем, как я думаю, делаю, двигаюсь, что говорю, как быстро развиваюсь, как схватываю новое, как быстро отказываюсь от старого.

Мне больше ничего не мешает понять, что происходит, чего на самом деле хочу я и почему именно так делает другой человек. Как изменить ситуацию, зачем и надо ли.
Я готова принять в себя необъятное, я допустила мысль и чувство того, что я больше, чем опыт одной личности, я действительно почувствовала свои возможности и со всем этим мне достаточно легко избавляться от изобретенных собой же ограничений.

Чего я действительно люблю делать и что стало моей глубинной потребностью в последние полгода? Если кто забыл - то это online/offline holistic theraphy sessions.
Через меня и правда очень красиво воплощает свою волю Вселенная, я каждый день благодарю Бога за этот дар ❤

Напишите мне личное сообщение, я буду счастлива с вами поработать 🙏

  • Has anyone told you that you're infinite, lately?⠀
⠀
That you contain the entire universe within you and could never be limited by other people's perceptions of you or the skin suit you live in?⠀
⠀
Well, I'll tell you. ⠀
⠀
The Moon is in Pisces and it's time to get mystical. ⠀
⠀
Get in the bathtub or the pool, do a crystal or guided meditation, make art without stipulations on what it will "be," dance without judgement, or do whatever else reminds you that you are more than your thoughts and that you are divinely connected to everything around you in the most hippie-woo-woo way possible. ⠀
⠀
I promise you'll feel much better about the unanswered text message, bad date, lost job opportunity, etc once you do (because you'll realize that none of it really matters).⠀
⠀
I love you!⠀

  • Life is a sensual experience. ✨

I love the way spring in the north comes alive. It smells like flowers outside, the sun doesn’t set until 9pm, and birds sing outside my window every morning & it all makes me feel some type of way. 🌸

It’s all too much grace for words.
