WHY YOU SHOULD MEDITATE (MEDITATE LIKE THE TOONZ)

We’ve seen meditation used many times before. From our favorites who need to regain clarity after losing a battle. 

Prepping themselves for an amazing confrontation or just using to control their emotions in a way that will make them better at anything they want to attain 

but is it accurate. 

Does meditation actually work like it did for Samurai Jack, Piccolo, Aang and Goku or is all Hippie nonsense. 

Today we Talk about Meditating like the Toonz AND HOW YOU CAN START DOING IT EASILY

REBLOGS GREATLY APPRECIATED

Belief

I don’t believe in god, I believe in myself! Focusing on how great I am today. Started the morning off with some yoga now having a cup of coffee, time to get this house clean so I can enjoy my day off work! Limitless options! Never forget that being a satanist isn’t all about working your ass to death, it’s about balance and doing what it takes to make you happy! Take some time to treat yourself, to buy that thing you really want, to do that thing you wanna do! Just take a minute today to breathe and take in nature and sit in awe of this beautiful hunk of space rock that we’re all spinning around on!
Shemhamforash!
Hail Satan!!!

anonymous asked:

how are you so confident in your self? i wish i could love my body and myself

“You must be the person you have never had the courage to be. Gradually, you will discover that you are that person, but until you can see this clearly, you must pretend and invent.
-Paulo Coelho

The answer is simple: I’m not, but I want to be and I am trying to be and that’s what matters. I have my “off days” but I’ve noticed lately that they are few and far between and after giving it much thought, I think I know why/how that is. The turning point for me was when I started practicing yoga. I became conscious of my body - of what it could already do and of its potential. Sure, I had already been running for four years, but (at that time) running seemed to only put a strain on my relationship with my body whereas yoga felt to me like this sacred hour where I was forced to approach my self with a gentleness and patience that I had never allowed myself before. A sort of intimacy that can’t be put into words… almost romantic. When I looked in the mirror I saw myself in a new light. I couldn’t even bring myself to nitpick at all of the different things I didn’t like about my body because I realized how absurd it was to be at war with the very thing that kept me alive. I started to view my body not as a depiction of who I am but as an all-encompassing representation of what I can do. My legs have been walking this earth for 18 whole years, my arms have wrapped around the people I love for as long as I can remember, my wild locks are quite possibly the only thing that truly convey the wildness I feel inside, my eyes have devoured the pages of everything from Judy Blume to Virginia Woolf, and my hands, frail as they may appear, are a mirror image of my mother’s. How can I not love my body?! How can I stand here and hate the same skin that, someday, my daughter may look up to? In this way, it’s not necessarily that I’m confident in myself as much as it is that I refuse to be against myself. That’s not to say that I never have days where I want nothing more than to jump out of my own skin but rather that I never allow myself to do so. This is the body I’m in and there’s nowhere else I’d rather be. I am my own best friend and best friends bicker every now and then but they never turn their backs on each other. I think that’s the most important thing. The moment you turn your back on yourself, you lose your power.

The thing about body image is that it’s not entirely in our hands. Over the years, we’re fed images and ideas that convince us that no matter what we do we will always be unworthy and undeserving of confidence, love, and acceptance. We try to bend and fold ourselves into shapes that are not ours, and I don’t think it’s out of deep-rooted masochism or a fascination with self-destruction but rather simply that we don’t know any better. For that reason, you need to be your own best friend; in a world that is constantly trying to convince us that we’re not good enough, we can’t afford to turn our backs on ourselves.

I’m not saying that we should all practice yoga or that doing so will give you the confidence you’re lacking. What I’m trying to say is that something truly beautiful happens when we make the conscious decision to work with and not against our bodies.

So I just hit 100 followers and I’d like to thank everyone who follows me by posting this list of all the links I’ve acquired on this studyblr so far. Shoutout to studyign for inspiring me to use my studyblr again! I’m having so much fun with it.  I hope this helps someone! I believe in you all and my askbox is always open if anyone needs advice or a friend.

My Year of Art day 352

I just joined a gym.
A few pounds I’m looking to trim.
Hopefully it’ll even help my posture.
Perhaps a love of exercise will foster.
Now we all we know I’m lying;
I’ll be the one over in the corner, quietly dying.
I’m slightly terrified of the free weight
I have a feeling that’s how I’ll meet my fate.
I’m starting tomorrow with yoga.
I’m not sure of the proper attire, I’m guessing toga.
I’ll do my best not to flake,
Maybe it’ll even help my headache.

Rage

Today, I went out with two of my girl friends. We went to happy hour, ate sushi, then walked to a newly-opened yoga place near my house. We were having a lovely, relaxing time, sipping sherry and eating dark chocolate with the woman at the “bar” set up for the yoga open house. My friend, who had been up since 5am teaching, fell asleep on the pillows provided in the yoga studio. 

It happened with a flash. I turned around and saw a very large man taking a selfie with my sleeping friend. I was stunned for a minute. Then I confronted him about it. I felt weak, like I was failing to find the fiery words that were starting to boil within me. I told him that what he did wasn’t cool, and that he should delete the pictures. 

Then he made a racist comment about Asians. 

And that was how I almost started a bar fight in a yoga studio.

I was too shocked to respond. Also some small rational part of me told me that punching another human in the face in a public place would make me the criminal, no matter what shit he said. So I didn’t fight him. But afterwards I cried tears of rage, because I wish I would have had that kind of guts to defend my friend.

Fortunately, the rest of my female friends confronted the guy, telling him that snapping pictures without consent was inappropriate and rude. He finally turned tale with his buddy and ran.

But it made me think of an incident earlier this week, when an acquaintance I knew from high school said that he wanted to drive 3 hours to DC to come have dinner with me. I told him no thank you, that made me uncomfortable, because I was not into him. What followed was a persistent interrogation on why I would not meet with him and how I must think so negatively of men to assume that he wanted to be something other than friends.

I barely knew this guy, and he felt like he could question my decisions and make judgments about me.

Then he insisted he was not a dick. HA. HAHAHAHA.

My mother taught me to be polite. To be a Christian. To be selfless. But she did not teach me how to stand up to a world that would take advantage of me, that would question my voice, that would keep me forever on the defensive whether I was trying to unwind after a long day of work at 10pm on a Wednesday or going out with a few of my girlfriends at 8pm on a Friday.

Sexism and racism is alive and well, and the second we drop our guard is the second we become too surprised and wounded to speak up. It fills me with rage that people think they can say shit like that. 

And I will not be silent. I will not calm down. And I will certainly not let it go as long as I and my friends receive this kind of treatment.

And whoever would love me better understand and respect this.

You’re his older girlfriend (SEVENTEEN)

S.Coups: -you were part of their favorite girls group and how all of you had almost a year on Seungcheol alone so they naturally thought you’d all go for older men/women. But he managed to get your number at comeback. Which was a shocker to all the boys- “I gotta noona romance thing now. I’m gonna make her melt when I convince her to go on a date with her.”

Originally posted by fabulous-girl-here

Jeonghan: -he scored a model. To be exact an Angel for VS and definitely his favorite. So naturally all the boys were interested in what you were doing while with the other Angels. Mingyu got the most recent group picture and rushed to show him- “god she looks hot. You better be looking at all the others or I’ll kill you. It must suck to think these girls could go to jail for dating most of you guys. Aren’t I lucky I got noona?”

Originally posted by gyuwoo

Joshua: -no one knew how old you were out of the boys. Jeonghan remember you from school but he didn’t know how old you were. But they soon found out how you were a year older than the 95′s and that you just turned 21 a week ago- “no way you can ditch me and go to the bar for a year, in America. You wouldn’t do that to me right? We’ll go drinking when I’m old enough when we visit my parents.”

Originally posted by vernon---baby

Jun: -he managed to be in the media with his news, he wasn’t just dating an older girl. No he was dating a very very well known actress. So he got to meet so many new people through you but he honestly wanted to be alone with you most of the time- “yeah I know she looks great. But you know she always has that skill. I need this time to move faster so I can take her out for dinner after this, it’s our 1 year tomorrow” 

Originally posted by hojoun

Hoshi: -the model older girlfriend that no one was sure how he met was you. But none of the boys thought you were real. But as soon as you had time off he asked you to meet the boys and by their surprise you were very much real- “noona these are all my group members. You know the one’s who thought you weren’t real because you’re dating me, you remember them right?”

Originally posted by 17sons

Wonwoo: -he liked how you were older but he hated hearing your talk about your classwork for college. It sounded more foreign that English to him. You’d be talking then stop when he was staring out the window. When he came back into reality he sent you a look- “I’m busted I guess? I’m sorry babe I just don’t know what you’re talking about” 

Originally posted by cosmic--confetti

Woozi: -he was playfully teased about it. They would ask him what it was like to be stolen from the cradle and how in the world he got a girl to like him- “she’s only 2 years older nothing serious. She thinks I’m youthful and cute so you know I got lucky”

Originally posted by hvung

DK: -you told all of them about college life and how you were stressed enough to start yoga and running. He wasn’t liking how all the boys got extremely happy when you came over. S.Coups even convinced you to show them some yoga poses.- “babe you need to stop before some get too ‘excited’ to learn. Can you start bringing your friends from class or something. The boys need to get their own college girl”

Originally posted by 12fools

Mingyu: -he was shocked you had barely a week on him and he thought you were at least a year older. He didn’t like that it took 2 months for him to figure it out for the first time- “wait does this mean I have to still call you noona. I mean I know you’re older but not by much”

Originally posted by camera-seventeen

The8: -the girl that was the maknae of her group but still was older than him, lucky for him your group worked in the same company which made seeing you easier. But you guys were sneaking around often so no one would find out and you joked you were getting to old for all the sneaking. He took it upon himself to joke- “well you are old babe almost have 3 years on me. But you look really good for your age old lady”

Originally posted by camera-seventeen

Seungkwan: -he bragged about his college girlfriend. The music major, campus babe, into Seventeen, and his all around perfect girlfriend. So when it came down to it you had to meet the boys which was going to be interesting- “noona should be here any second I hope she likes my gift. And none of these losers try to be cute with her or I’ll slap the cute right off of them”

Originally posted by thekpopfix

Vernon: -you were old enough to drink which was something he liked, he’d steal you drink every now and again to taste it before long he’d be caught by you. Getting a lecture about underage drinking- “this is really good noona we should drink these when I’m old enough yeah? Also no lecture I don’t need it. I have it kinda memorized from the other 2 times”

Originally posted by chwelove

Dino: -you were almost 2 years older than him so some of the boys started to teasing flirting with you while others held him back. The all listened to the disinterested tone you held which all shocked them- “she doesn’t need a whole bunch of boys flirting with her, she just needs me to. No one else. Now let go I have to save her from idiots”

It’s so crazy how a person can change so much over one year. I started doing yoga and eating healthy at the beginning of last summer and my entire mindset and life has completely changed. I’ve slowly stopped binge drinking, I don’t hate myself anymore, my eating disorder is actually under control and every time I have a negative thought about myself I replace it with a positive thought. Everything is just so much happier and brighter now.

anonymous asked:

Do you still practice yoga? How is that? I'm thinking of starting but I'm not sure where?

I sadly don’t. I haven’t found a studio here yet that doesn’t focus SOLELY on the physical benefits and also touches into spirituality and mindfulness…. so I’m still on the hunt but in a big city it’s a little bit harder. If you want to start, reach out to yoga studios! Usually they will offer a first class, or week, free. Note how you feel afterwords and if you feel good, buy a punch pass (id recommend before diving right into monthly unlimited)

anonymous asked:

Do you know good vegan applications? And I would like to muscle, do you think I should take a coach or an application?and for yoga?(I don't know how to start correctly😅)thanks💗

Hey !

I love HappyCow to find vegan restaurants and grocery store and I sometimes use Cruelty-Free and Is it vegan? to scan products. And I just use YouTube for yoga or working out (I post all the links I use everyday)

How i started yoga

Hi guys!

So, i get a lot of questions about how i started yoga lately etc. here are some answers!
When did you start? - I started four months ago, in the middle of january i think

Do you join a yoga class? - no i’m practising on my own at home

How do you started? - I started on my own at home. first i used youtube videos from yoga with adriene for beginners, but i couldn’t even reach half of the poses she showed for beginners so i started completely on my own with stretching (touching the ground with my hands, coming in the downward facing dog etc.) . coincident i started working on headstands, later on handstands and one month or a bit more ago with forearm handstands. i always used a wall because i was shaky like hell (and i’m still often!). i don’t do yoga flows at the moment because first i want to be able to reach the poses, so that the flows ARE flows and not just pretending like i’m relaxed when i actually have to fight to hold or come into different poses (yes i know, some of you think this isn’t good, but that’s the way i do it!). so when i do yoga, i always work on headstand, handstand and forearmstand and other different difficult poses and then i stretch my legs, my back, arms etc.

What kind of yoga do you do? - As you can see i just do the whole thing on my own. i often look through tumblr, instagram or blogs (always professional yogis) and look how they come into different poses or if they post tips or so. I don’t do one special kind of yoga for now. i do what feels good for me and as i’ve said, when i’m able to hold different poses for long times i will start concentrating more on real yoga lessons.

How often do you practise? - i practise around every day or every second day at the moment because i don’t have school and study a lot for my exams, so i have a lot of free time. the first three months i practised around every second day. if i don’t feel good i don’t practise (did this once, and it was a REALLY bad decision). i also do abs workouts every third day and i’m sure they also really helped for head/hand/forearmstands.

Sooo, i hope this helped! :) if there are any more questions, feel free to ask.
lots of love, kai xxx

anonymous asked:

what are your tips for someone who wants to start yoga?

here are some great links:

Can I also refer you to my all time favourite yoga blog sassyyogi

And here is a list of also very good yoga blogs :)

hope that helps :)

anonymous asked:

I really want to get started with Yoga, how should I start?

I’m still a beginner myself, so I’m probably not the best person to ask! But I’ll try my best :)

I personally love Yoga With Adriene! I tried Tara Stiles but I personally found her too quick paced and I much prefered Adriene. She does some great Yoga For Beginners videos, too!

Here are some really great links that I’ve found useful, too :)

Hope that helps a little bit! xxxxx

Something New

I’ve been in the fitblr/trying to be thinner which evolved into trying to be healthier game for years. I’ve always basically done the same thing because I know how to do it. I know how to pop Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred into my laptop. I know how to go to the gym and do 30 min of strength and 20 min of weight followed up by a protein shake. I know how to meal prep chicken and make lunch for school (honestly throwback). Maybe it’s time I switch it up. Because, between you and me, I also know how to be too afraid to go to a kickboxing/boxing class. I know how to wait until I start yoga at home before I try it in front of others. I know how to isolate my workouts. I’ve been doing that for years too. The best way to gain self confidence is to do exactly what you’re afraid of (I’ve seen that post floating around tum tum). So I’m gonna get me a new pair of running shoes (I donated mine for no reason???) and see if there’s a local running group or if the classes at my parents gym are as cool as they look.

Stay Healthy pals,

Teri

I know how hard it can be to jump start a yoga practice from thin air, but it’s really as simple as just integrating a few movements into your daily routine. @redbookmag asked me to put together some sequencing options for new yoga practitioners- check out Redbook Magazine (or me) on Facebook to watch the whole thing! @rbxactive, one of my favorite #partner brands, set me up with some very comfy clothes for the shoot- I’ve raved about their joggers on snapchat more than once, and these leggings are more of the same awesome texture and fit. Actually, RBX is having a sale on a bunch of plus size active wear RIGHT. NOW. Click the link in their instagram profile if you’re as addicted to yoga clothes as yours truly. (at New York, New York)
