1-5 minute meditation Take a nice deep breath ... Close your eyes See your seven chakras from the top down each blooming like a flower 🌺 as you place the Sun β˜€οΈ of your awareness on it... See your aura surround you with transparent blue... Feel and see the roots of earth 🌏 energy rise up into your feet and legs... Breathe... Smile. ☺️ Smile at your heart with gratitude. Open eyes. Look around softly ... Exhale and smile. ❀️ β€’. β€’. .β€’ .β€’ #5minutemeditation #meditation #spiritualawakening #spirituality #spirit #chakras #chakra #healing #mindfulness #mindfulnessmeditation #breathe #soul #flowers #consciousness

Amazing ceremonial Aztec Dancers at the Native American Trade Feast in Miwok Park. This is small clip of the dance following a prayer ceremony to the Four Directions. The man in red blew a conch in each direction. He spoke and said that the Aztecs do not have gods as many believe - but rather respect a sacred energy in all things. They respect life - animals, elements, nature, and each other. He was clear that Aztec dance is not a performance to entertain. This is a prayer to honor this sacred energy. β€’. .β€’ β€’. β€’. β€’. β€’. .β€’ #miwokpark #aztec #aztecdancers #dance #ceremony #novato #prayer #dancers #tribal #drums #drumming #feast #celebration #honor #tradition #spirit #spirituality #sacred #powerful

This air plant on the right wasn't doing too well so I made it a little home out of an abalone shell, rocks, and wax (plant is free, just sitting in hollow center) she is happy now πŸ˜€ . β€’β€’β€’ β€’β€’ #airplants #airplant #texture #decor #design #interiors #interiordesign #style #abalone #shell #plants #houseplants #diy #homedecor #home

No filter, no edit. Just one of those crazy fire red sunsets looking molten against coastal fog & silhouetted Cyprus. A small piece of the magic I love about the Sonoma-Mendocino coastline. Clinton and I were seeing green spots for a long time after - it's hard not to stare πŸ˜‚πŸ˜³πŸŒ…πŸ™ˆ. 🌊🌊🌊 #sunsets #sunset #sunset_pics #mood #noedit #nofilter #mendocino #sonoma #ocean #coast #naturephotography #nature #silhouettes #landscape #landscapephotography #seascape #red #molten #skyonfire #cloudporn #moodygrams #fog #california #norcal #travel #explore #spiritual
