❓Do you know something about this symbol?
The endless knot or eternal knot is a symbolic knot and one of the Eight Auspicious Symbols.
The endless knot has been described as "an ancient symbol representing the interweaving of the Spiritual path, the flowing of Time and Movement within That Which is Eternal. All existence, it says, is bound by time and change, yet ultimately rests serenely within the Divine and the Eternal."

and I'm lying in bed
with nothing but the idea
of you and i.
I’ll be the first to admit that I reeeeaaalllllyyyyyy struggle with criticism. I mean...REALLY. Like I’m talking one comment that is even somewhat opposing what I have to say sometimes (let me be real here...MOST of the time) makes me question my entire message. I annoy myself when I do this! I feel trapped in this pattern.
I know their opinions ‘don’t matter.’ I know the ‘haters’ will always exist. I know a lot of people out there are hurting and project their shit onto others. I know that some criticism can be good to challenge your current perspective. I know that not all people think the same and we all bring something different to the table. I know that some people are just miserable as fuck and have nothing better to do than spread their misery outwardly and with no regard. I know all of this. But I still struggle with criticism.
I find myself wanting to defend my message. I have been asked before: “do you find yourself wanting the ‘last say’?” I thought about that. And the answer I came up with was no. It’s not that I want the last say, but rather that I deeply struggle with the idea that someone will walk away with an idea of me that is completely false. But then...what is false? How is that defined? Well, by false, I mean the person didn’t perceive/interpret my message in the way that I intended for it to be perceived. But wait...how silly is that? That would be putting an expectation on the process. And on top of that, trying to control another person’s mind. When you break it down like that, it becomes ridiculous to me that I even care about such a thing and expend so much energy into dodging criticism.
But hey, whether we all like it or not, criticism will always exist - both constructive/insightful and ridiculous/unrelated. The haters exist. The miserable fucks exist. The beautiful thinkers that challenge you exist. There’s a spectrum of perspectives. We cannot run from them, but rather stick to our own guns and create what is real to each of us. And at the end of the day, it’s better to create something that others criticize than to create nothing, and criticize others. Don’t be the miserable fuck criticizing. Go create something cool.
Happy Wednesday to you all!

My boy Denzel here is bang on the money. I resonate hugely with this.
I know there are people reading this that maybe think sometimes I don’t respond to messages which are chit-chatty in nature, or that I never find the time to meet up for coffee and stuff.
The truth is I am really busy and I get little downtime, so when I do, I have to prioritise and protect my energy so I can continue my mission. -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So my message is this: watch your energy, and protect like nothing else.
It’s OK to cancel plans, not go out, take some you time. Do not feel guilty or bad, just do what you need to do!
Along my journey to find Happiness in my life, I realized that True happiness could not be found anywhere or in anything but myself. And even with that realization, I had no idea how to find that happiness within myself. And so in this video I outline 5 ways you can find true happiness within yourself and STOP depending on other people, situations, and things to bring us that happiness. #Happiness #Joy #InnerPeace
Click the link in my bio to find out how you can find true happiness too!

Don’t be afraid to share. Most people will hold back because of fear of rejection or they don’t feel like an equal. This is not true at all, we may have different titles that man has made, but we all have something to contribute and learn from each other.
Having wisdom also is knowing when to talk and when to listen... and knowing that you can probably learn something if you are open enough to know you don’t know everything.

I attended the first @njwellnessnetworkinggroup
event last month and it was amazing!! And I didn’t just walk away with a bunch of business cards, I actually made real connections with people I liked 😯! In a couple hours I was able to deepen relationships I had already started building from other events around town, plus I met some amazing new people who I could either see myself grabbing a drink with, collaborating with, or referring clients to. Oh and I even met 2 women who happened to be my neighbors, which was pretty cool. I’m speaking at the next event and would love to see you there and introduce you to the group 😊 .

Inner peace does not have to equate to consistent displays of stereotypical outer peace. Literal meanings are old hat. Read between the lines. The desire to control, has many a guise, and sometimes the very people who claim to want to help you, are the ones who are in fact, doing the opposite. Despite what some 'spiritual' gurus will tell you - there are some situations in life, that require the breaking of old walls - through the fearless establishment of new boundaries. The kind of boundaries that scare people who like to sit in ivory towers - dictating and sucking people's energy centres dry - like leeches with a smile. •
Darkness exists for a reason, and will always continue to do so. Negative energy (just like positive), IS the divine energy you all try to seek. Negative energy makes up half of your being as a whole, so avoiding it only means avoiding yourself, and at least half of what exists within the universe / your mind. Negative energy is destructive - but it isn't a bad thing like some people would have you believe. Negative energy smashes through the walls that cage you, and kicks outdated and oppressive paradigms out of the way. Making way for REAL growth. Not the fake, highlight reel kind that gets shoved in to people faces, by those who know very little about themselves, or how the world works. •
So, rather than shining your light on already well lit places - why not shine it on the things you've been avoiding? Breathe deeply, and open the cupboard. Yeah, so a couple of 'demons' might fall out, but it's not like they weren't already lurking. I don't know about you, but being stalked for life by a shadow I can't see, doesn't sound particularly appealing. Rather than having fear dictate the rest of my life, I'd rather face the discomfort of a spring clean.
I feel so vulnerable, letting go of control. Always I had to be strong. To let this role go, feels so scary and naked. It always felt so save to protect myself. I am tired of being strong and playing roles. To have everything figured out. To fit in. To be brave. I feel now that is is okay to not have that control. To show my vulnerability. To open my heart completely. To surrender to life. To let my guard down. To feel everything. Let it all come in. To feel naked. It feels so liberating . I have this trust. It makes me calm. I let it all come. And it washes everything I thought I was, slowly away.//

It’s not freedom from the storm, but peace amid it.
You don’t need permission from anyone to do anything or be any version of yourself you want to be. Just step into being. You got this! A lot of people will go their entire life and miss this concept. Or even worse, realize it when they’re 90 and think about what could have been. Not us, nah! 🌎🙏🏻😅
Throughout my healing sessions, dragons appeared as mesmerising visions that sent cold shivers down my spine in my most vulnerable moments of disclosure. The more I pushed myself into the deepest corners of my mind and faced the darkest memories and ugliest fears, the more Asian dragons appeared and left me feeling a strength surrounding my body, lifting me up to a state of well being that I had never before experienced.
The Watatsumi dragon is used throughout the Japanese culture as a symbol of strength, courage, and magic. The dragon is also known as the sea god a.k.a the dragon god, Ryujin.
The Watatsumi appears in bodies of water or rain, which means that whoever carries the nature of water within, is followed and guided by the Watatsumi.
Whether you believe in the spiritual existence of your inner self or not, you may sense the nature of the 4 elements (earth, wind, fire, and water) in your identity. Some people stand grounded like earth, some rise like the wind and some light the way like fire. Water people run deep and strong into the inner core, and embracing your element can help you conquer and rule your own world.
Be thankful for all that did not work out in your life. When you felt like you lost a human soul, when you gripped at its being, when you wished for it to stay — you gained space; and within that space you understood that the person you so deeply longed for did not meet your heart on its own level, did not try the way you tried, did not ache the way you ached. When you felt like you missed an opportunity, a pathway, a finish line on your journey — clarity bloomed within you, and you learned how to give yourself permission to change, you learned how to give yourself permission to make mistakes and overcome them, permission to take a different path, to dream a different dream. See, at the end of the day, all that you have lost, is all that you have gained. The Universe does not leave you empty, it always balances the scales within you. For all that it takes, it gives. For all that it destroys, it creates. Reassess all that you think is damaged, and defeated within you. Every breakdown was just a step forward into your becoming. ✨
I want to know what you think...

This would be truer advice "Let us fly to our dear country." (Homer, Iliad). What then is our way of escape, and how are we to find it? We shall put out to sea, as Odysseus did, from the witch Circe or Calypso-as the poet says (I think with a hidden meaning)-and was not content to stay though he had delights of the eyes and lived among much beauty of sense. Our country from which we came is there, our Father is there. How shall we travel to it, where is our way of escape? We cannot get there on foot; for our feet only carry us everywhere in this world, from one country to another. You must not get ready a carriage, either, or a boat. Let all these things go, and do not look. Shut your eyes, and change to and wake another way of seeing, which everyone has but few use. - Plotinus, Porphyry on Plotinus, Ennead I, translated by A. H. Armstrong, Loeb Classical Library, Harvard University Press, Ennead I. 6., p. 257

Happy Monday ☀️
There is maybe no sunshine outside but you can be your own little one 💛☀️
"Live beneath your means.
Return everything you borrow.
Stop blaming other people.
Admit it when you make a mistake.
Give clothes not worn to charity.
Do something nice and try not to get caught.
Listen more; talk less.
Every day take a 30-minute walk.
Strive for excellence, not perfection.
Be on time.
Don't make excuses.
Be kind to people.
Be kind to unkind people.
Let someone cut ahead of you in line.
Take time to be alone.
Cultivate good manners.
Realize and accept that life isn't fair.
Know when to keep you mouth shut.
Go an entire day without criticizing anyone.
Learn from the past.
Live in the present.
Don't sweat the small stuff.
It's all small stuff."
Words to live by 💛 feed your soul and be the light in the room ☀️
Day by day, you can be better.
Not for someone else, just for yourself. You matter 💛
I wish you a great start of the week, do your best, always. ⭐️
