From Overwhelmed to Overjoyed

I share four mantras to pursue your life purpose without burning out.
Aligning with our purpose can be invigorating and exciting but can soon become
overwhelming as we’re faced with endless lists of thing to do to build our practice.
Here are four mantras to retain your passion as you build your purpose-based
Spirituality and Violence
Spiritual people can be some of the most violent people you will ever meet. Mostly, they are violent to themselves. They violently try to control their minds, their emotions, and their bodies. They become upset with themselves and beat themselves up for not rising up to the conditioned mind’s idea of what it believes enlightenment to be. No one ever became free through such violence. Why is it that so few people are truly free? Because they try to conform to ideas, concepts, and beliefs in their heads. They try to concentrate their way to heaven. But freedom is about the natural state, the spontaneous and un-self-conscious expression of beingness.
If you want to find it, see that the very idea of “a someone who is in control” is a concept created by the mind. Take one step backward into the unknown.
Menstruation is sacred
Menstruation is a sacred and powerful time for the woman and the planet. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
The word blessing comes from an old English word ‘bleeding’.
The word for menstrual in Sanskrit is R’tu which also means ritual. This etymology indicates that menstruation was either associated with rituals or was the beginning of rituals in Vedic religion.
The Greek word for menstruation means both moon and power. The shamans have several names for menstruation including sacred, spirit, deity.
Menstruating women were considered to have access to higher powers. This period enhanced a woman’s intuition, sensitivity, psychic powers and gave her access to heightened states of consciousness.
Native American cultures consulted women during their menstruating phase for solutions to social problems, guidance for crops etc.
A menstruating woman was a woman with power and wisdom, one who transmitted life force, not only to her own species but to all life.
Menstrual blood was used as a fertilizer for crops during planting season.
The process of menstruation is deeply connected to our spiritual energies and offers new pathways for healing and living a joyful, vital and creative life.
With the personal healing of our body and mind, the planet will heal too. It’s time to release the negativity surrounding our bodies and menstruation and instead, embrace these aspects of our femininity and create a new inner and external environment that is balanced, whole and healthy.
And now science catching up:
Stem cells found in menstrual blood could potentially be incorporated into treatments for stroke, Alzheimer’s disease and Lou Gehrig’s disease
