Good morning & hello Tuesday! Maya was snuggly and cuddly this morning. She jumped up happy and ready, when asked about going on a walk 🐶 She found her favorite spots and moved on quickly without dilly dallying, since it was a bit stormy out being windy and rainy. There was no rustling from the forest today. It sounded as tho all the critters were sleeping in to stay dry and warm! 🐰🦝 Check out the 5 pm sunset today ~ Woohoo! 😎 Hope you have a great day and enjoy it a bit too! 💖 Xx

I can’t count how many times I have heard a question “How long does it takes to lose weight and have an amazing body?” And so many people think that the quick-fix approach will get them to their fitness goal.

For sure it completely dependent on the individual. If you want a total transformation, it'll likely take years. If you want to see noticeable results, you're looking at 3–6 months if you train and eat right. 
But the most important thing to remember is that body transformation is 20% gym and 80% diet☝🏼 Have a patience and willpower. This month’s choices are next month body🖤

Happy Transformational Tuesday beautiful souls! Spirit really wanted to make sure you understand the power you possess to create your world, your life & ultimately your own happiness!!! As we enter into the 72 hours prior to the New Moon in Aquarius, Spirit wants you to clearly set your intentions to manifest what you desire your for your life! What do you want?? If your current reality doesn’t align with what you truly desire then you have the power to change it! The color of each card is significant, the yellow references the solar plexus chakra which is the energy center for your willpower...your “will” to be done!  The blue card represents the throat chakra which means you are guided to verbalize your heart desires, your truth! Combined these cards are facilitating an activation  to your energy centers as you read this post. Spirit is powering you up to create or recreate your life! Empowering you to empower yourself! Slow the fuck down & be present...your mind is trying to force things to happen & it is creating friction...friction & resistance causes pain...no more fucking pain!! You’re heart & soul are suffering from the dissatisfaction you are feeling about your current situation. Align with & speak out loud from your core, from your will, from your truth, from your heart! That’s all it takes to begin creating a new reality for yourself! This  reading is from the deck I created with Spirit, Tied In Knots Oracle. It is available for purchase at Etsy.com/shop/shamamahuntingowl **To schedule private readings & healing services, and to make an energy exchange donation for my time & effort in delivering Spirits messages to the collective, Please go to my website Shamamahuntingowl.com If you would like to receive exclusive videos & other bonus content not available anywhere else, then please subscribe to Patreon.com/shamamahuntingowl Sending love & light...gratitude & blessings...🦉☀️🌻☔️🌈🌕💫🔮💖🙏🏼🦄 #newmoon#aquarius #reality #create #power #solarplexuschakra #throatchakra #communication #willpower #noresistance #nofriction #heart #soul #happiness #choice #shamamahuntingowl #cardoftheday #tiedinknotsoracle

FIFTY8 / The Art of Consciousness 
EPISODE 7 - The Unfolding of Life / The Void - Part 21

Check out the full Episode (in 3 Parts) on my IGTV!

All knowledge is the undoing of the personality/ego.

All of this is the Void and we are seeing it in that which is termed two-dimensional, linear time. 
Life is a continuation, there is no beginning or end - The Alpha and Omega. 
You cannot measure it by years and material standards.

We only grow old because of the limitation we put up with, we believe it to be.
This is the only plane and continuation where death is recognized.
In our natural state, the average age should be 500 years old.

Sin in scripture is the cause of death, and sin is the every thought and feeling that is out of harmony with the purpose of life.

There can be no sin against our Spirit, we alone commit what we call sin and we alone can forgive sin.
We must remove all obstruction and oppositions of this false consciousness.

Empower Your Life

Happy #transformationtuesday my loves!!! *
*
* I’m coming up on my 1 year mark on February 5th of being on @ww and it was the best decision I have ever made! *
*
* This journey has been hard , but totally worth it! I still have my days where I just want to eat like I used to..who doesn’t?? I’m human! We are all human! *
*
* I’ve gained a lot of willpower and motivation on this journey not only for my weight but life in general!
*
* *I’ve come to love myself again and that was a HUGE struggle for me when I was at my highest of 240, I hated looking at myself in the mirror , with or without clothes on.
*
*
* This @ww community on Instagram has been so fantastic and I’m so glad I created this accountability page not only to share my love for cooking because I’m a chef but I love being able to share my @ww recipes as well and for all of the amazing support we all give back and forth to each other! Such an awesome family to be apart of!!
*
* HAVE A GREAT DAY , STAY POSITIVE & STAY MOTIVATED!

In our previous post we’ve learned how our skills to delay gratification can affect our qualities and behavior. I think it’s not so crazy to compare the situation of the children in the study with our own when faced with a tempting sin or non desirable behavior(which in many cases are an immediate pleasure that pushes away a greater and long lasting reward) and just like the marshmallow test showed, the strategy that will ensure success is: redirecting our attention. .
Islamic scholars affirm, based on the legacy of Prophet Muhammad and his successors (peace be upon them), that the only way to influence the heart (our instinctive, passionate side) is to put our ‘aql (intellect, cognitive skills) in charge. The heart follows the mind wherever it goes, therefore we should be careful not to lead it to muddy places. Once the heart looks at the sin directly in the eye, it becomes extremely difficult to avoid committing it*. Even my four year old son has realized that: he asks me not to go anywhere near the candy shell at the supermarket when he is not allowed to buy any 😄.
.
*Difficult, not impossible, because even in the most adverse situations, our mind has the power to resist, by employing other cognitive strategies (we’ll explore them later) and, of course, by seeking God’s favor. .
.
Now what are the factors that affect the powerful skill of redirecting attention? Quite a few actually: specific genes, parental techniques, emotion regulation and cognitive control (e.g. attentional skills)
.
The good news is that we, as parents, can do all sorts of things to help our children develop their attentional skills in particular and delay gratification skills in general. That’s what our next post will be about so stay tuned 👋🏻
