You can resist the sweet things in life.
Love, intimacy or accepting yourself.
How does that make you feel?
What you resist persists. I could`nt say it better myself.
Resistance creates blocks, tension, stress and so on.
The more energy you put into something, the more power you give it.
Resisting means hiding, denying, or covering up.
What are Y O U resisting about yourself?
Where do you think you are supposed to be perfect?
Consider what you are hiding about you or ashamed of? ( yes we all do)
How can you start loving yourself a little bit more?
To recieve the wonderful gift of being loved.
I think the healing is to embrace.
Embrace what is. Embrace now. Embrace Life.
To all what Is.
Come October, come November, change is in the air.
Outdoors the temperature is cool, the air is dryer, and the winds pick up -- in an Ayurvedic perspective: it's Vata season!
The Vata inside your body will increase because of the condition of the weather outside.
This is because like increases like in Ayurveda.
Everyone will feel better pleasing and nourishing Vata for these coming months
As your Vata gets aggravated, you may start feeling stressed or fatigued, dry skin, and lack of sleep.You may also have huge sweet cravings.
Make sure to establish a steady daily routine , staying calm, warm and nourished...
Abhyanga - the sanskrit word for ayurvedic daily oil massage.
When I visited India earlier this year, I had a couple of Abhyangas.
It was not like any massage I had before.
The first massage was at my birthday.
Februar. A very hot day,
Totally naked. H U G E amount of oil.
Lying on a wooden bench while 2 or 3 peope using their warm hands releasing any stress in your body.
Then the shower. They give you a shower. Yes - you do not need to do anything.
Just relaxing(?) on a chair, waiting, while they slowly, wash away the oil. Every little corner of your skin.
Washing your hair. Singing. Humming.Smiling.
I felt like a newborn child. Purified.
I use organic sesame oil for self- massage all year around.
But it`s even more important during these cold and dark months here in the North.
Organic sesame oil. Make a note: Not the toasted, dark oil !
To purify the massage oil, “cure” it by healing it to about 220 degrees Fahrenheit.
You don`t n e e d to purify the oil, but if you have the time - make a try!
Do this once
Before using the oil. Warm the bottle a few second in warm water from the spring.
You can use the oil for massage in the mornings and evenings.
Begin with the feet. Rub the soles of the feet, especially good before sleep.
Massage the hole body before showering in the morning. Or just around your hip area.
Rub the oil gently into the scalp, yes, it will be greasy so maybe save that to the evenings or before schampooing the hair.
You can also place the oil in your ears and nose to help prevent colds, flus, sore throats, sinus congestion and allergies.
Just dip the pinky in some warm oil and insert through the nose :)
Be kind to yourself.
Make the cold, dark months a little more sweet.
Hug everyone you meet, even if just in your mind.
Everyone has struggles and needs compassion, no matter how they act.
Wrap even the most difficult person in a mental & emotional body blanket of love and acceptance.
A hug presses the message into another person,
“You are not alone.”
The beautiful thing about a hug is that as you’re giving one, you’re also getting one.
Say to yourself: If my arms were long enough I would hug the whole world.
Recieve - I give Y O U

Some inspiring words to begin the week
Your life is a love letter, addressed to all who are ready to see the truth of their inner beauty.
Every thought, word and action are left for others to find like anonymous love letters in the street.
The encounters seem to be random, but you know better.
You know that you have set out to intentionally imprint your message on all who can hear your message.
LOVE YOUR LIFE.
