I’m Just One Person

If every person thought they were just one person, and they could not make a difference, the world would stay the same.

If every one person did something about one thing they felt passionate about, if even just a positive thought on a regular basis, it would be More Than Enough, to change the world.

What do you feel passionate about?

Single serving vegan Chocolate Cake recipe

I love this cake, but mostly when it’s warm out of the oven. When I make it, I know that, so eat more than 1 piece, sometimes more than 2! I also love the edges, so making a single serving makes edges! I sprinkle a chocolate chips in the middle too, so there is warm melted chocolate there.

If you trying to love your body (better than trying to lose weight) this is not only good portion control, it is also made with love, and takes effort. You will think about it, and hopefully go through the effort every time you want a treat, right?

1/3 cup flour

1 1/2 Tbsp brown sugar

 1/4 tsp baking soda

1Tbsp cocoa powder

2 tsp coconut oil

1/4 tsp vanilla

1 1/2 Tbsp cold water

1/2 tsp vinegar

Mix all ingredients, and put in a greased custard cup. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes.

Enjoy!

Think Yoga is not for you?

Think again. This is yoga.

I did years of yoga before I stated teaching, and always thought the meditation was way to short! It’s my favorite part, why are we cutting it so short?! So when I started teaching I decided to do it the way I would want it, I extended the class time to 90 minutes, and made the meditation part 20 minutes.

If you don’t feel like doing yoga, come in anyway! I’ll give you something easy to do, and you can still meditate. I guarantee you will feel better when you leave. Any you can tell all your friends your’re doing yoga now 🙂

What if you thoughts were instructions for your subconscious mind?

This is a continuation from an earlier post, Can you stop negative thoughts?

There are many kinds of thoughts. I believe it is important to recognize where they come from. Are they coming from the conscious mind, did you intend to have the thought? Are they coming from the subconscious mind, or old patterns? Did someone else put them there? Can you notice them with curiosity? Is this an idea you want to invest in? Where do you want to to put in, now that you see/hear it? 

A thought you are not in love with….

After you witness the thought, and have some curiosity about it, you can be curious about where it came from. Who said that? Is it true? Is it possible that it is not true? If it is possible that it not true, why not go with that? Since this may not be true, what would I choose for the truth, if I could choose? Now you can get to a thought you are in love with. 

Some ideas about what to do with thoughts you are not in love with…

Burn them. Write them on a piece of paper, and burn the paper. Have the feeling of the thought, and bring it to your solar plexus and burn it there. 

Send it down your legs and into the center of the Earth, where it can be burned in the molten lava there, fueling the Earth energy for later use.

Thoughts you are in love with…

Broadcast them through your Crown Chakra, and send them to the edges of the Universe. Make the energy loud! 

Feel them in Heart Chakra, and love them. Notice all the things you love about the thought, and all the ways it makes you feel good.

If you are interested in these ideas, you can come to yoga class, or get a massage at The Place in Chicopee. All my yoga classes end with a 20 minute guided meditation. These ideas came from today’s meditation, or the other way around. A massage at The Place is an opportunity to personalize a guided meditation, and get a massage at the same time! (I love that thought!)Image
