✦ Everything is too much, but it doesn’t have to be✦
We have incredible gifts as Highly Sensitive People:
However, these Sensitive Strengths come at the cost of feeling easily overwhelmed all the time. ✦
There’s too much of everything: noise, people, bright lights, notifications, social pressure, to-do lists✦
In this busy world, it becomes difficult to go at our own pace. ✦
It’s our responsibility to:
✱advocate for ourselves
✱advocate for each other
✱prioritize our needs
✱do things differently
✱refuse to be busy all the time
✱live on our own terms
When we care for ourselves, we thrive. And when we thrive, we contribute so much to the world. ✦
The secret is, we actually thrive more than non-HSPs when we’re getting our needs met (research-proven!). ✦
Day 2 of #SpringGoddesses we celebrate Konohana Skuya-Hime, the Japanese Goddess associated with springtime and cherry blossoms.🌸
Her name means🌸 "Lady who makes the trees bloom."
I celebrate her today with a blossoming #TreePose , swaying in the warm desert wind.🌸
She is also Goddess of the sacred site Mount Fuji and all volcanoes.
She is seen as the Avatar of Japanese life.
Konohana Skuya-Hime protects against fire (which is a symbol of renewal) and facilitates childbirth.
She is a great Goddess to ask for protection against unwanted changes and to make ideas or creative projects flourish.🌸
Your assignment is to share your TreePose and celebrate your inner Kono Goddess!🌸
Hosts: @clarissa_mae_ @bentley.likethecar @yoginiinheels @leighyogipilot
A deep, unwavering inner-knowing
A wild, primal, native wisdom flowing freely and abundantly through you
Being able to sense the *click* of alignment, or lack thereof, in a moment’s notice
Listening to your own body wisdom
As it is always present and alive, whether you are awake to it or not
Indecision, uncertainty, self-compromising
These things just are not inherent
To this depth of sensing your own alignment
An embodied woman has to make the conscious choice to disregard or dishonor her truth and her worth
The women who gift themselves the immersive experience inside the Amba Movement Teacher’s Training come to know this reality very quickly
Because it’s a training of un-training, and of returning to You.
Gaining an acute ability to sense your whole self
And align to the frequency of your highest essence
Visit the link in my bio to learn more about the Summer Immersion Amba Teacher Training.
Questions about whether this is the right path for you? I make time to connect with each woman who is considering applying to explore if this is an aligned training for you and ensure your guaranteed success. I'd love to connect with you! ✨

✦ Embrace Your Unique Self ✦
Many Introverts and Highly Sensitive People feel weird or different, often hiding their individuality in an attempt to fit in. ✦
When we conform to what others expect, we lose touch with our gifts and our unique voice. ✦
Instead of trying to fit in, find your people and be your weird, authentic self! ✦

Being grounded in nature during meditation and/or sungazing is a great benefit you can do for yourself!
Always continue to shine bright like a diamond. The beauty of the world is for your viewing. Open your eyes!
Making contact between your bare skin and the earth allows a flow of electrons (negative ions) to pass from the earth to your body. These electrons are a type of electrical nutrition that has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits as well as reducing stress levels and pain. ⠀
This is a natural mechanism that allows living things to maintain the correct charge. When we build up a positive charge in our bodies we experience inflammation. When we gather electrons from the earth, we reduce our charge. ⠀
Before humans ever wore shoes or lived indoors we remained tied to the earths charge like the rest of the natural world and this likely had a large role in maintaining our health. Earthing would have happened regularly, throughout the day when we walked or at night when we slept on the earth. ⠀
Easiest way to get started? Bare your feet (or other skin) and stick em on the earth! Aim for a minimum of 30 minutes per day!⠀
[PON LOS PIES EN LA TIERRA] - No en sentido figurado, sino literal- .
👉🏻 El contacto de la piel con la tierra tiene múltiples beneficios y aquí te cuento por qué 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻.
Como psicóloga forense, estoy acostumbrada a la ciencia más dura y basada en la evidencia y he tenido dificultades para creer por ejemplo en el mindfulness. Pero cuando pasamos por tiempos difíciles uno prueba todo lo que te haga sentir mejor y es así que probé este mecanismo que sí tiene evidencia científica y me ha ayudado a liberar tensión.
✅ Se trata de una práctica milenaria, particularmente en culturas orientales, que te da fuerza interior y paz mental con la sensación de liberar tensión. ❓ Por qué ❓.
✅ Según la investigación, el organismo es un conductor de electricidad, en términos simples, el cuerpo está cargado positivamente (+) y la tierra, negativamente (-). Entonces cuando la piel desnuda toca tierra, el cuerpo descarga la energía electrostática que se acumula y absorbe los iones cargados negativamente que están en el suelo, equilibrando así el exceso de iones positivos.
✅ Cuando el cuerpo está demasiado cargado positivamente (+), es decir cuando no “hace tierra” las células tienden a atraerse entre sí y agruparse lo que en el cuerpo se traduce en TENSIÓN. Por el contrario, cuando las células reciben carga negativa tienden a separarse, lo que se asocia con una mejor CIRCULACIÓN SANGUÍNEA.
✅ Esto último entonces da luces que el contacto de la piel con la tierra, tiene un importante efecto antioxidante.
[Ref. Chevalier & Oschman (2015) Revista especializada Psychological Reports: Mental & Physical Health].
🦶🏻ANÍMATE y dedica unos 10 minutos al día, enfócate en el presente, toma conciencia de la respiración (ayuda si las cuentas), obvio deja tu celular de lado, y notarás los cambios🦶🏻.

When I ‘ground’, I find connection of earth’s MYCELIUM to body FASCIA to the GALAXY. #connection#grounding
I have been eyeing the beautiful tree branches full of blossoms lately.
I keep imagining them in vases in my home bringing outside nature into my inside sanctuary.
But I couldn’t bring myself to breaking off a tree branch so I continue to admire from afar.
And then, when I was on a walk, one lovely tree branch broken without any greenery - let alone blossoms - laid on the sidewalk on my path.
I gathered it up and brought it home, put it in a vase filled with water and here we are two weeks later with beautiful blossoms.
How many times in our lives have we felt broken? Like we didn’t belong... no longer connected to the tree branch.
No blossoms to speak of.
Doubt and defeat set in and we give up.
Yet maybe in those times all we need is a small amount of water to feed our souls and nurture our blossoming.
Don’t give up... give yourself that precious space and nurturing and watch your blossoms flower.
What part of you today needs to be seen... needs to be nourished?
For me it is my creativity. I haven’t painted in some time and the energy of “I can’t anymore” or “I’m not really an artist” can start to creep in.
So today, I will put my creative branch in water by simply picking up a paint brush and connecting it with a canvas.
The lioness brings her soul medicine dot-dot-dot my power is grounded in dignity and I stand up through my beauty and not allow others to make me feel unworthy or control through manipulation.
(that's the short version)
Much more detailed in the reading💜💜💜

Sitting out back enjoying some good vitamin d and drinking a coffee and I look down and find this heart rock. What a great affirmation to start the day. Heading out soon to go to a huge shooting event. Let's get this day started!!
Grounding. En af mine morgen rutiner. Altså nogle morgener; jeg har en stor værktøjskasse af sunde rutiner at tage af.
Dengang jeg var frisk og rask, gav jeg ikke meget opmærksomhed til sunde rutiner eller tiltag. Bevares, jeg har altid spist rimelig sundt og fornuftigt og har holdt min krop stærk med div. træning. Man er vel gammel fitness træner. Men! Hjerte og sind var ikke rigtig været med i det, det var ofte på autopilot, uden tanke på det hele menneske. Måske en af grundene til, at jeg gik ned med stress og nogle år senere opdagede, at jeg i mange år har gået rundt med flere diskusprolapser. Tal om ikke at lytte til kroppen.
På sin vis er jeg taknemmelig for, at min kloge krop sagde stop. Forstå mig ret, jeg ville hellere end gerne være min ødelagt ryg foruden, men som helhed, har mit liv aldrig været bedre. Jeg - eller min ryg - har sat farten ned, jeg er meget selektiv med hvad jeg bruger energi og tid på og sætter mere pris på det, der får lov at fylde i mit liv.
To join in on the fun:

I have to remind myself of this daily! I have such an anxious personality that I need to be keeping busy and it’s hard for me to be okay with relaxing or taking time for myself or just being in the moment!
Try to be more mindful throughout your day, instead of thinking ahead to the future or even to what your doing 16 hours from now.. be in the moment that your in.
I hope you all have a good weekend!!!

This is Thea and she helps me with my mental health 💙I have many tools, but she is the one I project and receive energy from the most. I keep plants around my apartment for both decorative and healing purposes.
With Thea, I say good morning to her every day and touch each and every one of her leaves while saying positive words and affirmations to her and at night I do the same thing when I come home by saying good evening and telling her she is looking beautiful and is doing such a great job.
This exercise helps me check in with myself because she is my mirror. If she’s dry, I water her and pour a cup for myself. If she’s looking yellow I go with her to the terrace and soak up some sun, I give her words of encouragement and internalize them as well. If she starts to look droopy and neglected I ask myself what parts am I neglecting of me.
Plants pick up on the energy around them. I will never forget how my apartment in the states was full of plants and no matter how many times I adjusted their watering schedule, sun exposure, temperature, etc they slowly started dying off. Why? Because me and my partner were constantly arguing and filling our home with negative vibrations. So now, I try to keep my home as elevated as possible, so if my plants start showing some signs of depression or sadness I scan myself and address it.
So I encourage you to give this exercise a try: 🍃 go to your nearest garden center and purchase a house plant of your liking (no cacti) and set it somewhere where you’ll see it everyday as you walk in/out, receives sunlight and ventilations. 🍃name it! Make it a thing, google meanings, perhaps give it your nickname. Something that will help form a bond between living things. 🍃 love it and love yourself ! Research how to care for your new baby as well as finding ways to care for yourself to incorporate into your every day life. 🍃lastly, on your day of self care while you’re chilling with a mud mask on, grab some baby (thank you @luadalai) or coconut oil and gently wipe the leaves with it using a soft rag or cotton ball/pad.
And there you go 🤗 tag someone who you’d like to try this out !

I received this new to me oil last month, Awaken. Here are some interesting things about it and one in particular I didn’t know!
“This blend may help awaken one to the possibility of their higher potential, that they may make the necessary transitions in their lives to achieve greater things. This blend may also be beneficial for spiritual and/or emotional enhancement.
Oil Blends Contained in This Blend:
🌱 Joy is a blend that may help to open the heart and promote feelings of self-love and love for others so that one can experience ultimate joy.
🌱 Present Time is a blend of oils that was designed to bring one both mentally and emotionally into the present time. In order for us to awaken to our higher potential, we must be living in the moment “now,” not fretting about the past or daydreaming about the future.
🌱 Forgiveness is a blend that was formulated to help move people into a mental state where they can forgive and forget. Inhaling this blend may stimulate one to forgive themself and others of transgression.
🌱 Dream Catcher is an oil blend that was created to open the mind and to enhance one’s dreams–– to help one visualize their dreams and hang onto them until they become a reality.
🌱 Harmony Without harmony none of the other states of mind would come to be. We must be in harmony with ourselves, with our Creator, and with the world and all those around us. When we have harmony in our lives, then many other things will come to balance and fruition.
This blend has Dream Catcher in it! One of my wishlist oils! It is also said that diffusing this blend while sleeping at night will helps us wake up feeling invigorated and refreshed. 👈🏼 Yes please!
I will be trying this tonight and hope for a restful, much needed, sleep.

🍃 It's a beautiful sunny Saturday here in Michigan. ☀️ So refreshing after a long dreary winter. I have an itch to go plant and flower shopping and get my hands in the dirt. I find gardening so relaxing and grounding. What is your favorite way to relax?
🍃 Pictured is a raw Amethyst necklace with rhinestones around the pendant. Amethyst chip beads adorn the top. You can check out more details in my shop. ~ Link in bio
Still and Start Saturday-
Stop and take time to send your energies downward- into the earth- along the current of manifestation.
Too many spiritual paths ignore the importance of grounding.
Grounding opens the lower chakras and descends deep into the vehicle of the body.
Without grounding we are unstable - we lose ability to contain, to have, or to hold.
We wonder from the present moment - we feel powerless - we may even no longer want to be here.
Here is a list of some easy and common grounding exercises: - stomping - Jumping up and down
Stop today and ground yourself!
Do you have a grounding practice?
If yes, what does it look like? And how often do you do it?
If no, will you start trying ones to find what one connects with you? And when will you do it? —— Beautiful Me is a introduction to your energies and will help guide you through activation, grounding, releasing, and healing. If your struggling please reach out and let’s work together on finding your right grounding and healing practice for you!
My Saturday 🙂🥰 laying in bed looking at my plants and watching tv enjoying my coffee. We don’t constantly have to be doing things, we can just chill sometimes, so I’m gonna chill. How are you gonna spend this beautiful Saturday?
