J'ai vraiment appris la semaine dernière (après la rupture) que parfois la personne la plus difficile à pardonner est celle contre laquelle vous voulez rester en colère.




* Veuillez lire les deux derniers articles de notre section AMOUR si vous n’êtes pas à la hauteur.



La semaine dernière, je me suis concentré sur le pardon afin de pouvoir me débarrasser de la toxicité qui se manifestait dans la vie par la douleur. Douleur qui a été infligée par quelqu'un avec qui j'étais auparavant.




Une autre chose que j’ai apprise, c’est que la douleur aime se personnifier et que si vous ne l’attrapez pas, elle prendra une vie à part. C’est pourquoi le pardon est la meilleure option pour moi pour le moment:




Voici 15 raisons pour lesquelles le pardon est si important pour moi en ce moment:




1. Je pardonne parce que les habitudes et les pensées toxiques n’ont pas leur place dans mon esprit ni dans mon cœur.


2. Je pardonne parce que la vie est une question de progrès.


3. Je pardonne parce que la liberté commence par la paix.


4. Je pardonne parce que c’est quand j’ai le plus besoin de pardonner.


5. Je pardonne parce que je veux voir le bon côté des choses.


6. Je pardonne parce que je veux sortir de ma propre voie.


7. Je pardonne parce que je veux garder mon coeur ouvert.


8. Je pardonne parce que la douleur dure aussi longtemps que je le veux.


9. Je pardonne parce qu'il y a toujours une image plus grande. Je ne comprendrai peut-être pas aujourd'hui, mais un jour, je le comprendrai.


10. Je pardonne parce que, parfois, l'amour nécessite de laisser le passé de côté.


11. Je pardonne parce que le meilleur moyen d'apprendre est de devenir un observateur.


12. Je pardonne parce que j'ai fini de prendre les choses personnellement.


13. Je pardonne parce que mon état d'esprit détermine la façon dont je guéris.


14. Je pardonne parce que ce moment vaut la peine d'être apprécié sans que le nuage du passé ne pleuve dessus.


15. Je pardonne parce que je refuse de conserver les bagages de quelqu'un d'autre. C’est leur problème à régler, tout comme j’ai le mien à traiter.

Izizathu ezine engizibonga ngazo ngabantu abangithandi.

Sonke sazi okungenani esisodwa. Bangase babe umngane, umntakwethu, umzali, usebenza naye, umphathi noma omunye umuntu empilweni yethu othola indlela yakhe futhi ngaleyo ndlela, uthola indlela yabanye.




Laba bantu bangabazonda futhi ngeke bajabule uma wenza kahle noma kukhona ukuthula empilweni yakho.




Lapho ngisemncane, ngichitha isikhathi esiningi ngigxile ekushintsheni laba bantu, ngibaphoqele ukuba bahluke noma bazame ukukhanyisa. Kodwa-ke, lokho engikufundile ukuthi abanye abantu (kungakhathaliseki ukuthi uzama kangaki) badonseleka kokubi. Bazizwa bephansi futhi umgomo wabo ukuletha phansi ezingeni labo.




Nazi izizathu ezine ukuthi kungani ngiyabonga ngalaba bantu empilweni yami:




1. Basiza ukusetha imingcele.

Kulula ukusetha imingcele nomuntu oqonda ukuthi kungani uzibeka. Kodwa-ke, abantu abayinselele kakhulu ukubeka imingcele nabanqabile ngoba imingcele ivame iphuzu labo elibuthakathaka. Ukukwazi ukusho, 'Angiyikuvumela ukungabi nandaba kwakho kungibhubhise, usuku lwami noma impilo yami' ingenye yemingcele eqinile kakhulu ongayenza nomunye umuntu. Ngoba kukukhumbuza ukuthi uyabaluleka futhi uma uzovumela umuntu ongeyena ukuthi angene endleleni okholelwa ngayo ngawe.





2. Bangakusiza nge-drive yakho.

Ngezinye izikhathi othisha abahamba phambili bangabantu ababi kakhulu. Ngezinye izikhathi kuthatha ukufunda isifundo kumuntu onomusa futhi onomusa ukucwilisa umlayezo ebuchosheni nasezinkumbulo zethu. Ngezinye izikhathi kuthatha umuntu ongakholelwa kuwe ukuthi ukholelwe kuwe. Akuwona wonke umuntu oyobe nomusa kuwe kodwa ingabe lokho kuzokuvimba? Noma, ikunika ukushayela? Lokho, kuyisinqumo sakho.




3. Bangakusiza ube namandla.

Ngisanda kukhunjuzwa ngalesi sifundo. Singazibiza siqinile kuze kube yilapho sibhekene nenselele edinga amandla. Ngaphakathi kwalolu daba, siqinile yini? Kulula ukushumayela ngamandla njengothisha; Nokho, abangizondayo engizizwile ngokuqondile bangibiza okubi emehlweni ami bangibonisa ukuthi nginamandla kangakanani. Ukunciphisa izindinganiso zethu ukuhlangabezana nalabo abathandekayo bethu kubuthakathaka. Amandla kusho ukuthatha umgwaqo ophakeme lapho sifuna ukunikela kakhulu.





4. Bangikhumbuza ukuthi ngingagxila kuphi.

Ngifundisa i-yoga ekilasini eminyakeni embalwa eyedlule futhi udokotela, phakathi nendawo ukuya ekilasini, wangibiza igama elibi futhi ngashiya studio. Ngangineminyaka engamashumi amabili nanhlanu ubudala enesifiso esinesifiso esikhulu esasikhathazekile kakhulu ngalokho abantu ababekucabanga ngakho ngaleso sikhathi. Ngemva kokukhala kimi, abantu abangamashumi amathathu bashiywe ekilasini futhi ngenza isinqumo: Ngingacabanga ngowesifazane ongekho oshiya noma egxile kubantu abaye bakhetha ukuhlala ekilasini lami. Ngaleso sikhathi, ngakhetha abantu abangamashumi amathathu ababesele futhi ngazithembisa ukuthi ngizoqhubeka ngenza kanjalo empilweni yami. Ngithembisa ukuthi ngiyohlale ngibheka abantu abanomusa futhi abanompilo empilweni yami futhi ngithatha amandla kubantu ababi ngenxa yokuthi ngizikhethele ukuzigcina, nxazonke, ngokomzimba nangokwengqondo, noma cha.

The 4 Reasons why I am grateful for my haters.

IMG_0001.JPG

We all know at least one. They might be a friend, sibling, parent, colleague, boss or anyone else in our life who gets in their own way and thus, gets in the way of others.


These people are haters and they will never be happy if you are doing well or are at peace in your life.


When I was younger, I spent so much time focused on changing these people, forcing them to be different or trying to enlighten them. However, what I have learnt is that some people (no matter how many times you try) are drawn to the negative. They feel low and their mission is to bring you down to their level.


Here are the 4 reasons why I am grateful for these people in my life:


1. They help set boundaries.

It’s easy to set boundaries with someone who understands why you are setting them. However, the most challenging people to set boundaries with are haters because boundaries are usually their weak point. Being able to say, ‘I will not let your negativity destroy me, my day or my life’ is one of the most solid boundaries that you can set with someone. Because it reminds you of your worth and if you will let someone negative get in the way of what you believe about yourself.



2. They can help you with your drive.

Sometimes the best teachers are the worst kind of people. Sometimes it takes learning a lesson from someone who is mean and unkind to sink a message into our brains and memories. Sometimes it takes someone not believing in you for you to believe in yourself. Not everyone will be kind to you but will that stop you? Or, give you drive? That, is your choice.



3. They can help you get stronger.

I recently was reminded of this lesson. We can call ourselves strong until we are faced with a challenge that requires strength. In the midst of that challenge, are we strong? It’s easy to preach about strength as a teacher; however, my haters who I have literally heard call me evil in my presence prove to me how strong I am. Lowering our standards to meet those of our haters is weak. Strength means taking the high road when we want to give in the most.



4. They remind me where to focus my attention.

I taught a yoga class a few years ago and a practitioner, mid-way through class, called me a nasty name and left the studio. I was a twenty-five year-old wishy-washy young adult who was so bothered by what people thought of her, at that time. After she yelled at me, thirty people were left in class and I made a decision: I could either focus on the negative woman that left or focus on the people who have chosen to stay in my class. At that moment, I chose the thirty people who remained and promised myself to continue to do so in my life. I promised myself that I would always focus on the kind and positive people in my life and take power away from negative people because it’s my choice to keep them around, physically and mentally, or not.

15 Reasons I have learnt to forgive when I didn’t want to.

I have truly learnt in the past week (post break-up) that sometimes the hardest person to forgive is the one that you want to stay angry at.


*Please read the last two articles in our LOVE section if you are not up to speed.


This past week, I have been focusing on forgiveness so that I can rid myself of toxicity which manifested it’s way into my life through pain. Pain that was inflicted by someone who I used to be with.


Something else that I have learnt is that pain likes to personify itself and if you don’t catch it, it will take on a life of its own. That’s why forgiveness is the best option for me right now:


Here are 15 reasons why forgiveness is so important to me right now:


1. I forgive because toxic habits and thoughts have no place in my mind and my heart.

2. I forgive because life is about progress.

3. I forgive because freedom starts with peace.

4. I forgive because when it’s most difficult to forgive is when I need to.

5. I forgive because I want to see the silver-lining.

6. I forgive because I want to get out of my own way.

7. I forgive because I want to keep my heart open.

8. I forgive because pain goes on for as long as I want it to.

9. I forgive because there is always a bigger picture. I may not understand today but one day, I will.

10. I forgive because sometimes love requires actively leaving the past behind.

11. I forgive because the best way to learn is to become the observer.

12. I forgive because I am done taking things personally.

13. I forgive because my mindset determines how I heal.

14. I forgive because this moment is worth enjoying without the cloud of the past raining on it.

15. I forgive because I refuse to hold on to someone else’s baggage. That is theirs to deal with as I have mine to deal with, too.

4 Things that I wish I’d known before my spirituality journey in this lifetime- not religious.

IMG_6899.JPG

I live in Los Angeles, the Mecca of spirituality in The U.S.A. You would think that I would only have great things to say about this, right? However, just like in life, not everything is black and white. Nuance can be applied to everything, including spirituality.


Even though both of my parents are spiritual people, I had to discover my own path. I don’t regret the journey at all because most times, not knowing opens space for us to truly learn with an open mind and heart.


If I could’ve know some things before my journey, they would be the following:


1. Spirituality is not always light.

I come from two extremely positive parents who always encouraged me that God and The Universe has my back. I know that this is not the average perspective because some people believe in the dark. I don’t mean dark like witchery (which can be darkness or light), I mean curses and using The Universe to manipulate people and things. One of the many great things about our lives is that they are usually direct reflections of what we are putting out. You might call yourself spiritual but what kind of spirituality are you aligning yourself with? The darkness (manipulation and force) or the light (manifestation, abundance and acceptance).


2. Just because you smile doesn’t mean that you aren’t in pain.

Everyone can wear a smile. However, internal happiness and wellbeing takes work. Daily practice and daily work to choose the path of enlightenment. As a yoga teacher, I encounter many yoga teachers who are in it for the enlightenment and wellness of all; however, unfortunately, I meet more teachers who are in it for self-elevation and Ego. The Ego is often an of extension of pain and until we learn to heal the pain that has occurred and manifested in our minds, bodies and lives, we will continue to think that we are above everyone else. However, the foundation of spirituality is connection- understanding that we are of the same: love.


3. Spirituality is a journey not a destination.

An extension of the last paragraph, in Western culture, we believe that if we receive a teacher-training or certificate makes us worthy of being followed on our spiritual path. However, in other cultures, who you are and what you represent is. Growing up in South Africa gave me an irreplaceable perspective that if I hurt my neighbour, I hurt myself because we are all connected. It also taught me that positivity is a daily practice and doesn’t happen when I get something but when I choose to be positive. Western Culture focuses so much on what we can get and then we’ll be happy: cars, phones, houses and other materials. This has been translated into our spiritual practice through having the right yoga-wear, practicing at the ‘best studio’, drinking the right kombucha, having celebrities practice next to us- all of this and then we will be spiritual. However, spirituality isn’t attached to when, it is attached to now. In this moment, will you be here?


4. Spirituality is not a replacement for therapy.

There is a huge difference between spirituality and therapy. The two cannot replace each other. Sometimes I hear people say that yoga can replace therapy which is dangerous. If you have been through something traumatic and need to speak to someone, please do so. Yoga teachers and the Asanas are not a replacement for someone who has been through years of study to hold you accountable for your healing. The same goes for tarot card readers, psychics, reiki healers and more. Asana (physical practice) of yoga is meant to show you your sanskars (behavioural patterns) so that it can enlighten you; accountability is a choice. If you have been through something that requires professional help, please seek it! So that someone can apply their expertise to what you are going through.

Chère Fake Girl,


Je sais pourquoi tu bouges comme tu bouges. Vous n'avez jamais eu la chance de rester ferme dans votre vérité. Et maintenant, votre vérité est devenue floue. et ainsi ont vos actions et vos mots.


Vous voyez, être faux est une façade. La façade est très visible. Il est visible que vous tenir devant un miroir vous fait souffrir et que vous vous répandez sous forme de potins, d’agressivité passive et de manque de sincérité.


Comme avec n'importe quoi d'autre, la façade s'estompe et quand c'est le cas, que laisserez-vous derrière? Un jour, personne ne se souciera de ce que vous avez à dire car le sourire que vous portez ne contient aucune sincérité ni authenticité. Les gens sont plus intelligents que vous ne le pensez.


Donc, au lieu de répandre un faux amour et de faux compliments. Peut-être essayer d'être réel? Recherchez le véritable amour et le soutien en vous afin de pouvoir le transmettre aux autres.


Ce que nous accumulons dans nos esprits, nos corps et nos âmes se propage avec énergie. Donc, ne soyez pas surpris si vous avez actuellement de faux amis et des personnes autour de vous qui sont floconneux. Une fois que vous aurez appris à vous tenir dans votre vérité, vous pourrez / pourrez répandre un véritable amour et de la gentillesse.


Commencez dès aujourd’hui car chaque moment est trop important pour que nous passions à la recherche de choses pour nous compléter. Votre véritable pouvoir consiste à savoir et à comprendre que vous êtes suffisant. Votre véritable identité suffit, même si les autres ne l’acceptent pas. Vous n'avez pas besoin de leur acceptation. Vous êtes le seul à avoir besoin de vous accepter.

12 mentiras que solía decirme que ahora no creo.

IMG_6666.JPG

Imagen de Unsplash 

 

Soy un firme creyente en las afirmaciones positivas porque somos lo que / quiénes creemos que somos. Por lo tanto, es importante mantener nuestros pensamientos sobre nosotros mismos positivos y de apoyo porque nos convertimos en lo que creemos.

No siempre he sido tan positivo. Cuando no fui tan positivo, el mayor error que cometí fue creer lo negativo que la gente decía sobre mí. Convierto sus mentiras en verdad.

Ahora que sé que estas creencias son mentiras, puedo decir claramente que son 12 mentiras que una vez me dije a mí mismo que no son ciertas:

1. Soy desagradable.

2. Soy perezoso.

3. No soy inteligente.

4. Soy cruel.

5. Soy gordo.

6. Soy una puta.

7. No soy talentoso.

8. Soy como todos los demás.

9. Nunca llegaré a nada.

10. Soy falso.

11. Soy fea.

12. No soy suficiente.

12 Lies that I once told myself that I no longer believe.

IMG_6666.JPG

I am a firm-believer in positive affirmations because we are what/who we believe ourselves to be. So, it is important to keep our thoughts about ourselves positive and supportive because we become what we believe.


I haven’t always been this positive. When I wasn’t this positive, the biggest mistake that I made was believing negative things people said about me. I turned their lies into truth.


Now that I know that these beliefs are lies, I can clearly say that these are 12 lies I once told myself that aren’t true:


1. I am unlovable.

2. I am lazy.

3. I am not smart.

4. I am unkind.

5. I am fat.

6. I am a slut.

7. I am not talented.

8. I am like everyone else.

9. I will never amount to anything.

10. I am fake.

11. I am ugly.

12. I am not enough.

Dear Fake Girl,

IMG_6703.JPG

 Dear Fake Girl,


I know why you move the way that you move. You have never had a chance to stand firm in your truth. And, now your truth has become foggy. and so have your actions and your words.


You see, being fake is a facade. The facade is very visible. It is visible that standing in front of a mirror pains you and that pain you spread through gossip, passive aggressiveness and lack of sincerity.


Just like with anything else, the facade fades and when it does, what will you leave behind? One day, no one will care what you have to say because the smile that you wear holds no sincerity and genuineness. People are smarter than you think.


So, instead of spreading fake love and fake compliments. Maybe try being real? Seek real love and support within yourself so that you can spread it to others.


What we accumulate in our minds, bodies and our souls spreads energetically. So, don’t be surprised if right now you have fake friends and people around you who are flakey. Only once you learn to stand in your truth can you/ will you be able to spread genuine love and kindness.


So, start today because each moment is too important to spend seeking things to complete us. Your true power stands in knowing and understanding that you are enough. Your genuine self is enough, even if others don’t accept it. You don’t need their acceptance. You are the only one who needs to accept you.

Ungase ubuze, kungani lokhu kubaluleke kangaka? Ukuqaphela ipulasitiki kubalulekile ngoba yonke ipulasitiki eyodwa oyisebenzisayo iseseMhlabeni. Kuthatha iminyaka eyinkulungwane ukuze ipulasitiki ibe yi-biodegrade.

Lower your plastic consumption with these 7 suggestions.

With over 55 countries that have just banned personal use of plastic, it is up to us (living in countries that have not banned plastic) to make a conscious effort to limit our daily use of products that use plastics.


You might be asking, why is this so important? Being conscious about plastic is important because every single piece of plastic that you have ever used is still on this Earth. It takes up to a thousand years for plastic to biodegrade.


Here are 10 suggestions to apply to your life so that you lower your plastic consumption:


1. Buy a reusable shopping bag made from fabric.


2. Avoid buying iced drinks from coffee shops that don’t recycle.

 

3. Replace soap gels and shower gels that use plastic containers with soap bars.


4. Re-use takeout containers.


5. Use your own coffee or tea mug (particularly for iced drinks).


6. Replace your plastic with tin or aluminium.


7. Recycle according to each state’s regulations.

Kulukhuni ukuhambisana nazo zonke izinzuzo zakamuva zezithako ezithile. Ngingumfana omkhulu womuthi wendabuko wangasempumalanga kanye nezinzuzo eziningi ezihambisana namanye ama-herbs asetshenziswe njengama-supplements ezinkulungwaneni zeminyaka.




Nazi izithako ezine engiziphakamisa kakhulu impilo yakho nokuthi kungani:




1. Ginseng.


Ngincoma kakhulu i-Ginseng. Ngiyithatha nsuku zonke futhi iyangisiza ngihlale ngiphapheme futhi ngiyasebenza; ngisho nalapho ngizizwa ngingenamandla noma ngikhathele. Lokhu akuyona indawo yokulala kodwa kungasiza ukulwa nokukhathala. Ngingumfana omkhulu we-Korean Ginseng ongathengwa ku-intanethi.






2. Oregano.


Esinye isengezo engiyithatha nsuku zonke yi-Oregano. I-Oregano isemndenini waseBasil futhi iyinhlangano yokulwa namagciwane emvelo kanye nencazelo yama-anti-fungal ukuthi iyasiza umzimba wakho ukukhipha ubuthi kalula, ikakhulukazi emathunjini akho. I-Oregano iye yahlotshaniswa nokunciphisa izingozi zomdlavuza kanye nokwehlisa i-cholesterol.




3. Ginkgo


Ukwengezwa kwesithathu engikutusa nguGingko. Izinzuzo zezempilo zivela ekuthuthukisweni kwegazi okwenziwe ngcono ekusebenzeni kobuchopho kanye nezinye izinzuzo eziningi. Uma ngithatha uGingko, ngiyabona ngcono ekugxilweni kwami  kwengqondo kanye nomzwelo jikelele. Angithathi lokhu isikhathi eside; kuphela phakathi nezinsuku engiyazi ukuthi ngizodinga ukugxila kwengqondo noma ukuzwa amandla.

4 traditional eastern supplements that are great for your health.

It’s hard to keep up with all the latest benefits of particular supplements. I am a huge fan of traditional eastern medicine and the many benefits that come along with some of the herbs that have been used as supplements for thousands of years.


Here are four supplements that I highly recommend for your health and why:


1. Ginseng.


I highly recommend Ginseng. I take it everyday and it helps me stay alert and active; even when I feel lethargic or tired. This is not a replacement for sleep but can help fight fatigue. I am a huge fan of Korean Ginseng that can be bought online.



2. Oregano.


Another supplement that I take daily is Oregano. Oregano is in the Basil family and is a natural antibiotic and anti-fungal meaning that it helps your body eliminate toxins easier, particularly from your intestines. Oregano has been linked to lowering risks of cancer as well as lowering cholesterol.


3. Ginkgo


The third supplement that I recommend is Gingko. The health benefits range from improved blood circulation to improved brain function and many other benefits. When I take Gingko, I notice an improvement in my mental focus and overall mood. I don’t take this for a long period of time; only during days that I know that I will need more mental focus or feel drained of energy.




4. B12

This supplement is naturally found in particular plants, eggs and most meats. They have recently found out that the body will excrete excess b12 so taking high amounts of it will not cause harm. I take b12 in my electrolytes that I consume daily. Providing me with generally more energy, mental stamina and circulation of minerals and vitamins from my food into the blood stream.
