I feel as if validation has become such an impulsive game of pursuing attention, which usually results in losing touch of ourselves and how we truly feel. Giving your attention away to the wrong people doesn’t only leave you feeling low internally but can also impact your performance to the point where you constantly seek validation for your actions. Think wisely as to who you give your attention to and always evaluate what they bring to the table, even if it’s simply how they make you feel. #wisdom #spiritual #kindness #joy #mentalhealth #nurturing #love #selfcare #confidence #brave #wellbeing #meditation #frequency #strength #dedication #brilliance #soul #poetry #peace #serenity #divine (at London, United Kingdom) https://www.instagram.com/p/CNt-OfXpX7w/?igshid=194bv3efweoto

Lately there has been mass attention to the realisation that racism and inequality is very evident in our modern day society. I personally think it is nothing new as racism has been present for centuries now, although the acknowledgement and education of systematic oppression is what is making a change and forcing a difference. It is not a conversation about diversity and inclusion, it’s a conversation about power and privilege. In a racist society it is not enough to be non-racist, we must be anti-racist as denial is the heartbeat of racism. Over my years I have encountered my fair share of awful and painful acts of racism and ignorance, yet I hold my head up high and allow my resilience and strength to pick me up of my feet. Racism truly springs from ignorance and there is a lot of people out there that need healing, not just from being a victim but also being the small-minded racist. I personally refuse to acknowledge or partake in conversation with anyone who shows such ignorance and maintains the ability to undermine or insensibly disregard my struggle. I see a lot of complacency and I would rather remove myself from that dark and toxic energy as I know it originates from an unhealthy place. I believe that there is a deep-rooted mask to racism as it stems from messages implanted during childhood that becomes registered and ingrained in the cognitive cycle of the mind, even if it harbours in a subconscious state. We all own the ability and power to reach unity in diversity and to empathise, learn the roots of racism, love and celebrate each other to our best potential. There is beauty in interchanging ideas, products, influences, not from the insular development of a single national style. As a person of colour, I am not afraid of my freedom. As freedom is never given, it is won. I wish everyone true kindness and understanding and the power to empathise. #wisdom #spiritual #kindness #joy #mentalhealth #nurturing #love #selfcare #confidence #brave #wellbeing #meditation #frequency #strength #dedication #brilliance #soul #poetry #peace #serenity #divine #racism #equality #sincerity #love #learning #empathy #knowledge #diversity (at London, United Kingdom) https://www.instagram.com/p/CNUKqkmJQ_r/?igshid=bvt9qgq812ic

💥Daily Card 4/05/21 - Queen of Cups💥
Queen of Cups
Nurturing and Sensitive
Today’s card is the Queen of Cups. She brings an energy to the day that is warm, nurturing, and filled with love. This could be coming from us or it could be someone we’ll cross paths with today.
There’s a sense of calmness in the air and our thoughts are turned inward. This may be a time of soul searching and learning about ourselves. We are very much in touch with our emotions and those around us. It may be a day that someone else needs our loving support to help them in their journey. We are generous of spirit and empathetic with others, making ourselves available to help.
This day is likely to bring out our sensitive side and our intuition will be strong. Love is in the air for all to give and receive.❤️
Thought for the day - The most precious gift you can give another is your time and undivided attention. In the loving spirit of the day, let’s try to give that to someone around us. Take five minutes of your life and devote it entirely to someone else. No agenda, no expectations....let them lead the way.
Love and light to all of you, have a blessed day🙏

What do you give yourself permission for today? So often we get caught up in what we think we should be doing or feeling. But the moment we surrender and accept ourselves in the present moment is when we finally find the peace we are seeking. Take a moment to feel the truth within your heart and release the words your soul desires. This is your life, your world, your destiny. Give yourself permission to be you.  You get to choose what vibrational frequency you wish to reside in. There’s no right or wrong choice. What you want may not necessarily be the same for another. And that’s okay. We are all living according to our own level of awareness. What we should all be doing and wanting for each other is to live in alignment with our Higher Self and be the greatest version of ourselves. When we let go of all the expectations we place upon ourselves we can finally be free to step into the person we have always wanted to be, and deep down know is the happiest version of ourselves. #wisdom #spiritual #kindness #joy #mentalhealth #nurturing #love #selfcare #confidence #brave #wellbeing #meditation #frequency #strength #dedication #brilliance #soul #poetry #peace #serenity #divine (at London, United Kingdom) https://www.instagram.com/p/CNJ5gCIJY3P/?igshid=2hll9tw1d8m0

Somewhere deep within yourself, you will meet your worst enemy and find your greatest power. It truly is the power that you have deep within yourself that gives you the strength to pursue whatever you want in life. I’ve always found that silencing my mind is super helpful and I believe it is not about feeling a certain way, it’s about feeling the way you feel. You can purify your existence by feeling deep within yourself. Try to identify consciousness and purity. Once you conquer yourself, you can conquer all your fears. What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us. Deep within us dwells happiness and truth. #wisdom #spiritual #kindness #joy #mentalhealth #nurturing #love #selfcare #confidence #brave #wellbeing #meditation #frequency #strength #dedication #brilliance #soul #poetry #peace #serenity #divine (at London, United Kingdom) https://www.instagram.com/p/CM38hUUphLO/?igshid=11vmviu7be4ju

Infancy is called the symbiotic stage because we are perfectly co-dependent on our mother or other nurturing survival figure. We are dependent on them to learn about ourselves and to get our basic physical survival needs met. At this stage we are undifferentiated. This means that we are naturally and unconsciously at one with ourself, but that we do not have the capacity to reflect and to consciously know that we have a self. We need the mirroring eyes and the echoing voice of our mothering person in order to discover our I AMness.

“The caterpillar enjoys the energy of being grounded as much as it will enjoy the energy of being a butterfly in the sky. This is because one cannot exist without the other, and every phase of the cycle is equally as necessary as the next. You will have less worry in your life when you can appreciate all of the moments of becoming who you are.” 
Because divine timing can feel like you are losing control of your life, learning a few of the rules can help you live in the present and be excited about the future. 
• Learn Patience 
Patience is perhaps the hardest and the most important rule to embrace. It can be difficult to accept that the universe will give you what you want when you need it and patience can be elusive. If you do feel impatient, really examine that emotion. 
• Don’t Get Attached to Time 
Time is always moving and changing. When we cling to the past, we have a challenging time accepting universal timing. Try to let go of what once was and embrace what could be because that’s where divine timing lives. 
• Examine Discomfort 
The universe might expose uncomfortable areas of your life, usually because this is a time when we need to look deep within ourselves and grow. Don’t hide from any discomfort life brings your way because that is the perfect time to develop. Resisting things, such as painful or uncomfortable areas of our life, only hinders our acceptance of the universe’s timing. When possible negative emotions or situations arise, don’t run away but sift through them carefully, you might be surprised at what happens. 
• Try Not to Plan 
The right timing for everything happens when the universe wants. No matter what, be open to the idea of change and acceptance, and it might be for the better. 
• Don’t Attach Yourself to an Outcome 
It can be hard to not attach to an outcome. Especially when it comes to dealing with dating, relationships, or love. But remember, everything happens on the universe’s watch. Where you end up with your current partner isn’t always up to you. Trusting that the universe has your back will make it much easier.

#she is fueled by love and composed of compassion.
Unconditional, devoid of judgement, eternally enduring — #she is nurturing and goodness incarnate.
Compassion and unconditional love are the building blocks of a perfect heart.
Let the world fall away. We don’t need anything else — only #her.

LESSONS FROM FARMING: LEADERSHIP AND MANAGEMENT BEHAVIOURS
Tumblr media
Farmers pay attention to the details. It is not always an innate quality. By sheer hard work, constant research, an investment in time, and consistent habits he or she fosters growth in ways others may not understand. A farmer works harder for better results. We could easily be talking about leadership: it is so much like gardening. As leaders, it is too easy to see the role as one of domination and control. We are in charge and we want everyone to know that. Yet, if we tend a garden or a farm, we learn quickly that the plants have their own way of surviving in the wild. We cannot pull on the green stems. A nurturing approach is not "an" option in leadership; it is the only option. It is also something you can learn with practice and patience, like farming and gardening. To lead effectively, we must nurture. In many ways, the gardening analogy is better than any other analogy (say, running a race, rowing, or building a house). Some things that come out well are:
Strengthen the corner post:. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . When building a fence, it is essential to have solid corner posts. Their purpose is to provide staying power of the tension so that the barbed wires stay taunt and useful. To gain this strength, a farmer needs to ensure the foundation for the hole is deep enough, well compacted, and braced to support the wires extending from at least two directions. We must be well-anchored and well-grounded to support the tensions and the reliance required to do the job consistently and continuously.
Tumblr media
Plant well, harvest right:. . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. There is more planning which goes into farming than we might realize. Key questions need to be answered such as:  What do we plant? Where do we plant it? Has the right soil preparation been done? When do we plant it? How do we care for it during the growing season? When do we harvest it? How can we maximize my harvest? Plan proactively, balancing timing with the right preparation to get the most results from all resources involved.
Look for the growth:. . . . . . . . . Growth will happen, especially with the most teachable people. Sometimes, we must look a little harder. We may have to get down on our hands and knees to see the germination in the farm, but when the first signs of life are observed, it is a wonderful discovery. The kind of excitement from seeing something grow needs only to be felt. If only we acted that excited as leaders in the workplace.
Tumblr media
Pick rocks:. . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. There are mundane jobs which need to be done to prevent troubles later or at critical times. Picking rocks is one of those responsibilities. Big rocks translate into less soil to grow crops. Small rocks create potential problems at harvest – a rock going through the equipment can result in costly repairs and delays. Do the mundane jobs to clear the environment of potential problems and get the most out of what you have.
Tumblr media
Nurture in any way possible: . . . . . . . . . New growth in a garden or a farm is hard to spot and even harder to nurture. It is a bit like the security industry. In security, we have to use any means possible to protect our files. Install a firewall, use anti-virus software, train employees. In farming and gardening, we have to build a fence, add plant food, and cover the seedlings if there is an imminent freeze. Great leaders do the same. Leadership is primarily an act of defence. You defend employees, protect them, give them a place to do their jobs. Any other arrangement can quickly turn into a dictatorship. Plant seeds and give space to the sowers: . . . . . . . . . The best leaders know how to plant the germ of an idea. They are subtle. "What would it take to get this new product launch a few more clicks on Facebook?" Maybe we already know the answer. Planting a seed is a way to encourage others to think, to foster ambitious ideas, to encourage creativity. The alternative to this leadership style is being the one who always has the best idea. To employees, that is like taking a fully grown tomato plant, digging a hole, and placing it into the garden. The shade alone from that massive stalk will kill the seeds (and the ideas). When newcomers bring ideas from other industries and businesses, are they welcomed or are they rooted out because “that’s not how we do things here”? True leaders think about the whole garden.
Tumblr media
et your hands dirty:. . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. Farmers are unafraid of a little or a lot of dirt. From planting to harvesting and from cattle to chickens, farmers will get their hands dirty. They are in the middle of the action; and they know the only way to help get things done is to get your hands dirty. Jump in and activate the work that needs to be done.
Remove impediments: . . . . . . . . . Maybe the primary act of all great leaders is to remove impediments. Weeds always inhibit growth in a garden. We have to get creative about this process. Resolve conflict. Reward people what they are worth so they can perform their job. Remove distractions and confront problems. Like the master gardener, we are the primary weed control expert charged with encouraging growth.
Tumblr media
Give your word, keep your word:. . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. Farmers are helpful. If a neighbour needs a helping hand, it is extended. In rural communities, few words are generally spoken, but the words are always backed-up with action. There are few written agreements in farming; your hand-shake and your word are your commitments. If you say you are going to do something, you do it. Words and actions are bounded tightly together. Offer your commitment, keep your commitment. In the end, your reputation will be what remains.
Praise consistently: . . . . . . . . . Great leaders carry a watering can at all times. The job is highly dependent on our ability to nurture. Forget the sandwich principle (e.g., every negative remark should be "sandwiched" with one slice of praise on top and another on the bottom). Just praise. People have enough negative markers in their life for what they are doing wrong. We need to be the person who tells them what they are doing right and maybe, just maybe, they will grow into something amazing.
Tumblr media
Consider the “season." : . . . . . . . . .  In today’s 24-hour global economy, it would appear that there is no season, nothing that distinguishes night from day. But the smart leader watches the sky, reads the clouds, and can tell when there are shifts to indicate a new season. Bring products to market at the wrong time or introduce an idea without understanding timing and the “garden” can quickly resemble a piece of scorched earth.
Tumblr media
Give credence to the unexpected and control what you can control.: . . . . . . . . .  The pandemic has not only raised havoc but spawned dangerous storms throughout the world. Leaders face such conditions: market downturns, a coup in Africa, airline strikes, terrorist attacks. A great leader takes all precautions and then remains flexible and ready for the unexpected. Scenario planning, a strategy first employed by Royal Dutch Shell, brings experts from a wide range of fields together to discuss actions if different scenarios take place. Scenario planning allows you to think out—in advance—various options. In like fashion, a master gardener always has all the tools, sprays, and plant potions necessary for probable surprises.
Feed different plants differently: . . . . . . . . .. Not every plant needs the same thing, yet all plants must eat. A “garden-wise” leader understands “nothing is so unequal as the equal treatment of unequals." Just as each voice has its own unique sonogram, each employee, associate, and stakeholder needs a unique blend of “food." For some, the "food" is numbers. For many, it is the opportunity to learn and advance in knowledge. For others, it is the engaging nature of the work itself that offers fulfilment.
Tumblr media
Weeding is backbreaking work: . . . . . . . . .. A great leader hates this part of the task. It means fact-finding, accountability, and time. Not everything that is “green” belongs in my garden. Not every associate belongs with you. In fact, firing customers at times can also be the healthiest long-term fertilizer for a vibrant business.
Store for a better day:. . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. After the crops are harvested, there are two options:  sell right away or store it. At times, the money may be needed sooner rather than later. Usually, the harvest season is not the best time to sell – supplies higher, prices lower. Also, you may need reserves to help out during the bad times, when the weather delivers a blow and crops suffer. A buffer is needed from time-to-time. Keep a reserve – funds, personal energy, time, etc. Know the critical resources and be ready for the droughts and the long haul.
Tumblr media
Leaders must take time to stop and “smell the roses." We can get so overwhelmed with the “work” of our garden that we forget why we planted it. When we step back and gaze at our enterprise, are we pleased with what we see?

Today's Tarot: No Grinchy Grudge
Today’s Tarot: No Grinchy Grudge
Connect to the life inside a task, connect to the fun and joy of a thing and it becomes easy. Be grudging what you do for others adds a ton of weight. Whatever you may do for others, there is something somewhere for. Cook a meal and you get something to eat too. Arrange a game for the kids, and you get to play too…or a moment to take deep breath while they do. “Either way, what bliss!”
