So grateful for all the #mama wisdom @michellemny, co-founder of @littlespoon shared today for the #MNDFLMama podcast. I loved hearing her insights on what #mindful eating can look like right from the start with our little ones, and how #compassion and #understanding can help transcend the judgment that can come from “mom shaming.” The power lies in supporting each other. Excited for #littlespoon ’s #nomoreoldbabyfood campaign that raises awareness around baby food not being older than your baby! 👶🏻❤️ @mndflmeditation
It is heart breaking to see the negative that Trump is doing and has done. Everything from selling our national parks to making it legal to hunt wildlife as they hibernate or from the air to withdrawing from the Paris agreement and now allowing imports on endangered species from certain countries. And shame on US parks and wildlife for allowing trump to make this change. GREED is the only language you people know. #BeKindToElephants @theellenshow is donating to @dswt to help elephant conservation for every repost and hashtag of #bekindtoelephants . PLEASE REPOST
📖A #dicadelivro hoje é:
VOCÊ TEM FOME DE QUÊ?, do autor Deepak Chopra, com essa leitura podemos compreender por que comemos demais. Chopra entende que emagrecer é tornar mais consciente o processo de comer, e isso inclui ter consciência dos nossos pensamentos e sentimentos. Afinal, um pensamento leva a um sentimento, que leva a uma ação, e a ação repetida vira um hábito.
Segundo o autor, quem come demais está preenchendo algum(ns) vazio(s) interno(s) e, enquanto não “acordarmos” para isso, continuaremos a “fazer dieta”, conduta que só piora a já existente desconecção com o próprio corpo. Ele diz isso por experiência própria, conta ele. Apesar de ser médico e hoje ser considerado um guru no mundo todo, ele já foi um médico bastante descuidado com a própria saúde. No passado ele trabalhava demais e, quando chegava em casa, comia e bebia demais – além de fumar, e acabou adquirindo bastante peso, problemas de saúde e precisou emagrecer. Foi quando ele se deu conta de quantos vazios internos ele estava preenchendo de forma disfuncional e automática, com a comida e a bebida alcoólica.
Já leu? Me conte se concorda comigo. Aos que ainda não leram, #ficaadica . .
E ah! Aproveitando o post, gostaria de saber se querem que eu faça mais publicações relacionadas a saúde e qualidade de vida. Se curtirem a ideia, escreve SIM nos comentários, por favor?! 🙏🙏🙏
Elephants are my spirit animals.
I’m so fascinated, can’t even remember when I️ started to love them so much. •
🐘 Did you know that elephants commonly show grief, humor, compassion, cooperation, self-awareness, tool use, playfulness, and excellent learning abilities ? •
🐘 Elephants form herds with complex social networks and hierarchies. •
🐘 These exceptionally smart and empathetic animals form close bonds with members of their herd and have developed many ways to communicate affection and support for one another.
• 🐘 Elephants demonstrate concern for members of their families and take care of weak or injured members of the herd.
🐘 They grieve for their dead.
There are reported cases of elephants burying dead humans.
And they are very much in danger of extinction.
🐘 These animals are one of the most impressive, beautiful, fascinating species on earth and our idiot president decided to let people kill, torture, and bring back part of the elephant's bodies to show off in America. •
🐘 What are you trying to Say Trump ? •
That it is ok to kill ?
It's ok to be proud to kill and torture living creature ?
It’s ok to live in a society where egos need a boost and can use power and destruction over the rest of the world ? •
😡 Trump, this decision is just a mirror of your personality. You are SICK. You are the worst that society created. •
❌ The Trump administration will begin allowing hunters to bring into the United States “trophy” elephants killed in Zimbabwe, reversing a 2014 ban on a practice that has received intense scrutiny in recent years. • During the recent presidential campaign, photos recirculated on social media showing two of Donald Trump’s sons on safari in Zimbabwe posing with several dead animals. One photo showed Donald Trump Jr. holding a knife in one hand and a severed elephant tail in the other.
• 🐘 PS: These photos were taken in Sri Lanka. I saw some of these elephants in the wild and I met some of them in an private elephant orphanage in the country side of Sri Lanka.
Fun fact : they love being massaged with coconut.
Following the President's decision to allow hunters to bring "trophy" elephants into the U.S., Ellen stood up for the majestic creatures and called on viewers to help raise awareness for her cause using #bekindtoelephants . For everyone who shares and reposts, she will make a donation to The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. Link in bio ♥️🐘 @theellenshow
When Pharaoh drew near, the people of Israel lifted up their eyes, and behold, the Egyptians were marching after them, and they feared greatly. And the people of Israel cried out to the Lord. They said to Moses, “Is it because there are no graves in Egypt that you have taken us away to die in the wilderness? What have you done to us in bringing us out of Egypt? Is not this what we said to you in Egypt: ‘Leave us alone that we may serve the Egyptians’? For it would have been better for us to serve the Egyptians than to die in the wilderness.” And Moses said to the people, “Fear not, stand firm, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will work for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall never see again. The Lord will fight for you, and you have only to be silent.”⠀
Many times, we are like the Israelites that grew fearful and began to doubt once they saw the incoming Egyptian army. We often forget how great our God is, and our faith falters when things start to go south. When a problem arises, we try to fight it ourselves or complain, but Moses' word is "The Lord will fight for you, and you have only to be silent." He is telling the Israelites that 'it's okay'. You don't have to win any battles. You don't have to fight on your own. You don't have to be afraid when the situation looks bleak. All you have to do is be still, and the Lord will win the victory ☝️🙌⠀
Pay attention to your dreams.
There is deep, subliminal, cellular, DNA cleansing going on.
The Scorpio New Moon holds such depth and we have permission to go in deep.
This next phase of evolution requires a lot of surrender into a steep path of learning, letting go and recalibration to something new, so it can breathe.
Your dreams are like markers of where you are dying, where you are birthing.
In the confusion don’t be hasty, mean, greedy or fall asleep.
Be peaceful and open so change can really seed.
No, not comfortable or necessarily easy to do.
Yet the truth is defiant on its pursuits of the real you.
Challenge your disbelief.
Challenge your small mindedness.
Challenge the incarceration, that blinds you into fear, war, rigidity and judgement.
For only then can you find the compassion, see the truth, live your dream of being you.

Dairy & eggs are likely the most cruel & inhumane industries. Please stop funding them.
Not sure how to start? Try a 22 day challenge with free support, recipes, and mentors:
@Regranned from @bitesizevegan - ...
There is no shortage of horrors within the animal products industries—but the standard practices of dairy farming are among the most heartbreaking and brutal
To maintain a constant supply of milk for human consumption, we need a constant supply of pregnant cows. So the mothers of the dairy industry are repeatedly violated time and again through forceful 'insemination'
And as babies, after all, drink their mother’s milk, they are taken away immediately after birth
The males go to the veal industry where they are crated, unable to move, and slaughtered as babies. The females have the honor of continuing in their mothers' exploited footsteps—to continue the cycle of pregnancy after pregnancy and loss after loss
Every time you purchase a dairy product, you are supporting the destruction of families .
Keep families together. Ditch Dairy. Learn more in the video linked in my 👆🏽 bio today. Afterwards go to http://www.BiteSizeVegan.com/YourMilksMother
"Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around." Leo Buscaglia
Try enacting one of these acts once a day when your initial reaction is to be dismissive, respond with sarcasm, or ignore a cry for help.
We have the ability to improve our lives by choosing to give a pat on the back, a smile, a friendly word, a safe place to vent, recognize strength, and giving encouragement over distance, a scowl, an insult, disinterest, dispensing of gossip, brutal criticism, and defamation.
When you are inclined to be anything other than your best self, take a moment to reflect on your thoughts and feelings. What is driving your defensive/offensive behaviour?
What do you believe about yourself, others, and the world that you feel a need to behave in such a way?
Most likely you would benefit from auditing your thoughts about yourself.
Most likely you would benefit from being open to self critique and self-love because when we understand compassion for self we are able to be compassionate towards others.
When we seek to act with compassion first we can prevent so many acts of violence and disharmony.
It is our responsibility to care for ourselves and our community.
I listened to a disturbing podcast today about true crimes.
I feel that the crimes described were results of children being ignored and failure of the perpetrators to have genuine human connection and community fear of getting involved with reporting harassing behavior.
Emotional and mental instability can be very still and quiet, we must as a community be willing to seek understanding.
We are capable of unthinkable acts when we fail to be introspective and reflective.
We are capable of amazing growth when we respect ourselves and others simultaneously.
I will continue to reflect on my emotional triggers and seek to be my best.
If you made it this far to read my thoughts thank you.
Please share a kind word to a stranger today, you just might save a life.
I honestly don’t think I could ever eat an animal again. Especially when I watch shit like this. It’s almost 6 months that I’ve been vegetarian. I never thought I could do it this long, and at this rate it may be for a lifetime. I had a few trial and errors, but I’ve successfully been able to eat good without meat and I do not crave it either. There has to be a point when you question yourself if *taste* is more important than your compassion and empathy for other sentient beings. We live in a society where we are not forced to kill animals to survive as well, because we have a plethora of veggies and plants to choose from and eat. It’s easy not to think about it when you’re hungry and don’t have to kill the animal yourself, but I can no longer support the meat industry that screws up the environment too and often plumps up their animals with shitty food like cotton candy and corn and also injects them with hormones etc. Nah, I’m good. But even if you can’t stop eating meat 100%, you can decrease your intake a bit. Every little step counts! I get my protein and vitamin B12 even though I stopped eating meat, so don’t forget to do that when you go veg. Now I ain’t ready to go vegan just yet, but vegetarian is my start for now. 😎 If you’ll forever be a carnivore, that’s okay too, but this is just something to think about. #vegetarianlife#veg#vegan#compassion#animals
ChYL: There’s nowhere Love is not. If that’s not your current view, try standing in a different spot! Or better, try sending Love the direction you think it might be missing...you’re sure to see at least a glimmer then! #compassion#seethelove#belove

"Understand through Compassion or you will Misunderstand the Times." This the 4th sutra given to us by Yogi Bhajan. The purpose of life is tightly tied to the relationships in our life. The journey through spiritual awakening is where we deeply discover that I am you and you are me. All is one, one is all. We can practice compassion everywhere because we are around people everyday. The more I understand the mind, the heart and the power within, the more I see the power of this. Compassion is powerful. You're not giving in or giving up anything. You're just shifting from using the power of your heart rather than the force of your mind.
Quick check-in: Next time you judge someone, try thinking of a reason why they may be doing what they are doing. Is it possible you've acted, or shown up in this way before? Remember, we are reflections of each other so if you're judging or holding others to high standards, you're also doing this to yourself. When you come from the heart, minds and hearts will be open. When you come from fear, all will be closed. #awarerelationships#compassion#spiritualsuccess 🌟🌟🌟4 spots left for my "Awaken to Spiritual Success" 90 day spiritual bootcamp! It's a journey from the inside out - develop your awareness, learn to leverage energy and spirituality for success as an entrepreneur, get the tools to keep your vibration elevated when challenges arise, discover the purpose behind people in your world to see the opportunities, and get ahold of your limiting beliefs and fears so you can be as successful as you want to be.

(On the subway just now) One man gave up his seat for an older man; then that older man gave up his seat for a blind man; then another younger man gave up his seat for the older man who gave up his seat. This. Thank you for this ❤️ Carry on, you warriors of light 🙏Spread that love; and an especially profound thank you for the friends who nurtured me in their love today #risetogether
Our crazy middle kid Annabella was “knighted” for her #compassion . It’s kinda a big deal. I’m glad Medesa and I were able to be there for this.
Last night when I was packing for my double #marathon trip Anna didn’t want me to leave. She said dad don’t go run. You could twist an ankle. Lol. But I’ll be good if you bring me something. So somewhere I need to find a pink dress for her. Lol.
Donald Trump has done many atrocities since he became president, lifting the ban on elephant trophy hunting, allowing American citizens to bring into the country the carcasses of these innocent animals for display and vanity. Trophy hunting has got to be one of the worse senseless acts of cruelty these pseudo humans aka hunters can commit in the name of vanity.
please help @theellenshow fight back. Please share this image with #bekindtoelephants all beings have the universal right to experience life in peace. It is time for humans to become the big brothers we are meant to be.
Yesterday, when I read what Donal Trump’s plans are about elephants and “trophies” my heart sink very very deep. This is an animal that I’ve been in love and obsess about for years. Their intelligence, care, social skills and personalities are incredible and I cannot believe how someone can eve harm them or ANY animal. Please sign the petition. Link in the @humanesociety profile.
Ayer cuando leí la noticia del plan que tiene Donal Trump en contra de los elefantes, mi corazón se hundió! Yo amo a los elefantes. La inteligencia, como se desenvuelven, la manera en que se relacionan y demás es increíble. No entiendo como alguien quiera hacerles daño a ellos o a cualquier animal. Por favor, firmen la petición en el link que @humanesociety tiene en el perfil.
