My mind was troubled this morning so I went to the forest to meditate. As I was sitting on the ground, I focused all of my energy on the Amazon. Thinking about how all that the Amazon has to offer to the earth was being burned to ashes and dust... how people and animals are losing their homes and everything they know... this story is not gaining enough momentum and THIS IS NOT OKAY. The Earth is our home and we should be doing everything in our power to protect and nourish it.
The largest rainforest in the world is a critical piece of the global climate solution. Without the Amazon, we cannot keep the Earth’s warming in check. The Amazon needs more than our "thoughts and prayers." So what can YOU do?
✔ As an emergency response, donate to frontline Amazon groups working to defend the forest.
✔ Consider becoming a regular supporter of the Rainforest Alliance’s community forestry initiatives across the world’s most vulnerable tropical forests, including the Amazon; this approach is scientifically proven to be the most effective defense against deforestation and natural forest fires—but it requires deep, long-term collaboration between the communities and the public and private sectors. ✔ Stay on top of this story and keep sharing posts, tagging news agencies and influencers.
✔ Be a conscious consumer, taking care to choose products from companies committed to responsible supply chains. Eliminate or reduce consumption of beef; cattle ranching is one of the primary drivers of Amazon deforestation.
✔ When election time comes, VOTE for leaders who understand the urgency of our climate crisis and are willing to take bold action—including strong governance and forward-thinking policy. - @rainforestalliance

Feeling overwhelmed? Anxious? Unfocussed?
Starting your day with intention will change your life.
Being highly sensitive to the energies around you, makes you prone to feel overwhelmed easily. This may drive you to avoid crowded places, to cancel plans, to call in sick. and although alone time is essential to recharge, fleeing from the world is more of a victim mind set. ✨
YOU can make changes in how the world affects you, at the start of your day. ✨
Creating a self care ritual will help you create your day, how you want to feel, what you want to experience, what you want to do. ✨
What helps me?
I meditate. Daily. Having done this for the last 3 years I can say it brought me space. When something happens, I now feel more space to respond, instead of react. ✨
I use affirmations. Phrases that are powerful attributions to yourself. Remember, all our beliefs are based on messages we received in the past. By creating your new affirmations, you can influence and alter your beliefs. about yourself. about others. ✨
I set intentions. On how I want to feel. On what I want to do. On how I want to show up. ✨
I practice gratitude. Writing down things that i am grateful for in my life. Not a list to completions, but at least 3 things daily. Really feeling them. ✨
And I journal. on how I feel, my affirmations, intentions, on whom I wanna become. A compilation of the above. which aids in imprinting them in my head as a centering thought throughout the day. ✨
I did not implement all these habits overnight. They take time to sink in. But they work synergistically. And make me feel powerful from the start of my day. ✨
