Many scary things are happening in America & the World right now:

1. War is abundant. More than 67 countries are in a state of war right now! Did you know that there are only 196 countries in the world today? That means that more than 34% of the Wold is currently in a state of war. That’s 1/3 of the world’s Nations. Click here for a full list and description of these wars.

5. In America a hideous tycoon Donald Trump & an evil temptress Hillary Clinton are the final candidates fro #president. I am very nervous about the fate of America when either one of these goons takes power.

I’d like to ask you if you read or see this to stop for a moment & send a prayer to North Dakota, to America & to the entire World for the #preservation of our #lifewaters.

I have several friends right now volunteering at the stronghold at Standing Rock & they have reported some very scary things our crooked government is doing to stop the #stronghold

The government has frivolously spent $6,000,000 dollars on a helicopter to run people; women and children alike off the surrounding areas. Who knows how much more money the government will be throwing away like this to work against the preservation of our precious waters.

“When #water picks up #toxins, the #EPA has a word for this, “Impaired” (that is, the water cannot be used for the full range or purpose for which we might want to use it).” Click here for more info.

“The EPA estimates that 85% of all #river miles and 68% of all #lake acreage in the United Staes are currently #impaired.”… Toxic substances found in municipal drinking water across the United States have been indirectly linked to to many chronic, degenerative diseases, including #Alzheimer’s, #asthma, most forms of #cancer, #infertility, #Parkinson’s, and rheumatoid #arthritis.”

With this information you would think the EPA and all those in “charge” would be doing their best to not only preserve the water resources we have left but to restore, at least to some degree, the outlandish amount of water sources already “impaired”.

What exactly is our #government doing to make sure what’s already happened in the tri-state area isn’t going to happen in North Dakota? They are spending Millions of dollars to fight protestors and kick them off the land, that’s what they are doing. And if that happens, what you will see is massive contaminations of the waters in North Dakota. We can’t let that happen, we have to stand together to make sure our water is preserved. #waterislife

We have to stand together, "UNITED"

We have to stand together, “UNITED”

Many of the problems spoken of in this article pertain to the United States but there are many more problems, equally and even more devastating occurring around the world today. As a Global Nation, we need to Stand Together United and secure the future of our World, the future for our children and the future of mankind as one. Violence, greed, war, religious arguments are not uniting people, they are separating us even more and soon enough if things do not change we will be well past the point of no return for what we can fix… So, what are you doing in the world or your community to make our world a better place so our children’s children can flourish and thrive?

Until next time… Peace be with you…

Kid’s Yoga & Meditation

While some people think kids wouldn’t like yoga or meditation…

Beginning of Kids meditation

I like to believe otherwise…

I find the best way to get kids into things like this, is to make it fun… How do we do we accomplish this?

We make fun yoga poses out of animals. Here are a few of the animals and poses we use and do:

Dog- we do downward dog, hold the pose & then lift one leg straight out at a time, this helps with our balance

Gorilla-we bend over, make silly noises and lean from side to side

Snake- we lay on our bellies, come up on our hands, arching our backs and make fun hissing noises.

Ladybug- Mommy curls up on her belly, kinda like in baby pose, then the kiddo gets on top of mom, laying on her back and lays still and quite feeling like a little ladybug.

Monkey- Mommy bends over, crosses arms together, holds hands out for kiddo. Kiddo puts legs through arms (like he would on the monkey bars outside), grabs mom’s hands and then mom lifts kiddo off the ground and we swing back and forth making silly monkey noises.

Tree & mycelium- standard tree pose but this time half way through kiddo curls up under mom and acts like mycelium and tries to wrap himself all throughout moms feet or “roots” this allows us to work together to help the tree grow.

We then use the wall as a prop to work on our strengthening and toning.

And we do acro yoga poses… this allows us to connect, work together and have fun!

As for the meditation…

We close our eyes and focus on what’s around us, we feel the air on our skin from the fan above, hear the music coming from above and we focus on our body parts (this usually makes us laugh) …

next thing I know it’s been minutes and those little eyes are still closed and the face is finally relaxed… So yeah, it isn’t hopeless to get children to join in on your routine as long as you make it fun for them…

So the next time you want to connect with or do some fun activity with your kiddo, maybe you could try one or all of these methods…

Let me know what you think by commenting below, if you have used any of these or what you do to help your kiddo participate in these activities. 

Until next Time… Peace be with you
