Isn’t it a b**ch that the self-improvement tools we’re told we NEED by the Spiritual Wellness Industry are the very things which keep us locked in the feeling of not-enough-ness? That the cure is actually the same as the sickness?
Speaking to one of my coaching clients yesterday we discovered (and she gave me permission to share) that all the add-ons of gadgets, crystals, special oils, tools, workshops, retreats and temporary ‘wisdom’ have been creating separation from the Self she has been trying to know... That the relationship with her loved one she so desperately wants to be more loving and intimate never gets the opportunity to be because that depth is blocked by all the practices and things and beliefs she layers on top of herself to be more lovable and worthy of intimacy

So she is always hidden behind spiritual masks of separation and self-improvement and never shows up raw, unapologetic, sometimes broken, yet always radiantly real

Many of us do this. We know that the only way is IN and THROUGH. Yet we try to get inside by layering the outside with trinkets and clever ‘spiritual’ language and that one secret ancient technique which will [INSERT UNREASONABLE CLAIM HERE]

There is no product you can buy that will make you more beautiful
No extra layer you can add to yourself to refine what is already there
No clever thing you can know that will make you impermeable to pain and death
Nothing you really need if you are one of the lucky ones who already has food, water, health and shelter, emotional connection, safety and love

I propose we save our time and money and start spending it on delicious organic produce and cooking lavish meals for each other on cold wintry nights and buying ethical gifts supporting local artisans and we all just relax a little bit, remember that life is short and spend half our precious time in awe of all the beauty and the other half in service to those people who didn’t get their basic needs taken care of as part of the package this time around, that if we’re wealthy we share what we have, and that as we relax into our freedom we remember to be angry and fight for anyone without that opportunity

Our consumption model is broken: We’re over-using natural resources, exposing children to toxic chemicals in our everyday products, and creating too much waste. This is unsustainable.
.
A big part of the problem is ingrained in the fabric of our lifestyle. The changes needed go beyond what products we choose. We need to redesign our behaviors: Why and how we consume.
.
We can evolve to a new, higher form of consumption. When we do that, we create endless opportunities to re-imagine and improve our lives.
.
We have to organize new ways to provide everyday products and services. We can offer alternatives that solve for joy, convenience, sustainability, and affordability. We need to make it easier for people to make the right choices.

#consumerism at its best when you can walk into a #walmart at 12:32am and think about buying a TV.

SMALL STEPS 🧘‍♂️ Life is an accumulation, an accumulation of tiny steps, of small wins to a greater win. We do things daily to contribute to a greater good, to better ourselves, to grow to change ever so slightly, to morph into something more profound. We take footsteps, not leaps or bounds. We accumulate experiences and friendships and things that make us happy. We achieve things we didn’t dream of 10 years ago because we work at them, bit by bit, day by day.
Its not about instant success or gratification or having something now. The quicker we earn it the less we appreciate it. We are programmed to face challenges, use our intellect and strive towards something greater in the hope of finding satisfaction in our achievements.
However, we are suckers for a quick fix and instant gratification. We are a generation of have now and work later. We have lost our patience, our work ethic, our mental grit. We no longer want to endure, wait it out. We travel the path of least resistance every time. But why? Why do we no longer want to work for something even though the satisfaction of achieving it far outweighs the alternative?
It saddens me that with every new generation we are losing that fundamental trait of good work ethic. Things are so easy to access now with the touch of a button. You can have almost anything you want through your phone or computer. We have instagram celebrities that earn a living from posting about crap. Absolute crap....but we watch it. We are consumed by watching others lead their lives. Most of them are doing ordinary things but make it seem glamorous. However, if you look beyond the lens there is 150 photos before they post that ‘perfect’ shot. They feel sadness, and anxiety and have ugly days. They struggle, get angry and have feelings of inadequacy like us all. Do not be fooled by the people you follow, their lives are want they want you to see. It’s click bait, entertainment and most likely targeted advertising.
Most of them are selling you something you don’t need to make you feel something you won’t feel.

How often do you say “keep yourself updated”? A lot right!
Well, that’s what the lawmakers also feel.

Wouldn’t it be grand if instead of trying to declutter ourselves out of a heap of broken promises, we could instead preempt the entire exercise? At the store, in online spaces, when we are absorbing information. Asking crucial questions before we consume. Does it spark joy? sure. But what about: is this going to cause me immeasurable shame and self-loathing in the future? Has the production of this caused someone else suffering? Will buying this product, or accepting this idea as truth, have a long lasting negative impact on myself, others or the planet?
*
If we deal with these questions pre-clutter, then we don’t have to deal with all of the shame of the declutter. *

Sustainable swap # 22👇🏻 .

Make memories .

Instead of buying a traditional gift for the next holiday, birthday or special occasion, look into something to make a memory instead. Try tickets to an experience, check out a park, have a picnic, take a class, be a tourist in your own town, laugh over drinks, frame a photo or share a home made meal .

The daily prompt {SURRENDER} is supported within the Self Care Architect series of the SCP podcast.

Foundation: Consumption or How We Consume -
Digitally
Emotionally
Materialistically
Nutritionally

Surrender to yourself as in deeply allow. Look honestly at how you consume. This creates an amazing shift and will help you get to where you really want to be. It also takes courage. ✨
SURRENDER, be courageous & allow the answers to reveal themselves. This episode is near and dear to my heart.

Tic Tac looking like a sweet little kitty 😍

You'd have to be absolutely heartless to hurt an innocent animal like this. 🐱
And yet, everyday we do. Myself included, I'm not perfect. From the food and products we buy, to the clothes we wear, to the car we drive. Consumerism is what keeps our society going and when you're on a tight budget and see $5 vs $1 for almost the same exact product, we most likely opt for the latter without a second thought. The latter product being something cheaper that either contains animal parts or was tested on animals. Or if it's not that, probably something made from child labor in a sweatshop somewhere. ....
Here's the thing though- we vote with our dollars. When we buy food, products, clothes, etc we are telling the market what we want and it becomes more readily available to us. People are waking up and we're seeing more ethical fair trade products, affordable organic produce, more vegan options in restaurants and stores, etc. People are being more conscious in their everyday decisions to reduce harm when possible.
And I know that it is impossible to be 100% perfect (I mean, that would just get boring after a while anyway, don't ya think? 😉) I know this started out as a cute kitty post but it gets me thinking about how every single thing on this earth and in the universe is ultimately connected and the more we see that, and the more we see ourselves in others, what harm can we really do?
Choose kindness and reduce harm where you can. ❤❤❤❤

Picked up a bag of trash on my walk to work this morning. It was mostly full when I found it, but there was enough litter on the street for me to fill it within a minute.
🔻
Yes, litter pickup isn't the solution, but that doesn't mean we can just walk past it everyday like everyone else, without a thought.
🔻
The systems in place that perpetuate this problem are so vast and overwhelming it's hard to know where to start, where to expend your energy.
🔻
Maybe the most important part about our cleanups with Savannah Trash Warriors is that we get to meet people in our community, build connections, make friends and build a coalition of people who can make a difference together.
🔻
So many forces in this world are trying to drive us apart. It's an act of civil disobedience to organize collectively; to say, "No, we won't be divided today. We will act as one."
🔻
So come hang out with us!

Hi! I’m Nicole, aka @earth_aware !
Over consumption is the root cause of a lot of the Earth’s environmental problems:
.
Excess packaging and litter
.
Ocean pollution
.
Manufacturer Co2 emissions
.
The loss of quality products
.
Land consumption
.
The list goes on! 📜 That’s why, every time I am about to purchase a new product, I go over my 3️⃣ rules.
.
1. Where did it come from? - Meaning, HOW was it made? WHAT is it made out of? WHAT went into it’s production? WHAT or WHO has its production impacted?
2. How will I use it? - Is it something that I will get good use out of? Is it going to last a long time? Will it provide me of any value? Is it an impulse purchase?
3. Where is it going to end up? - Is this a REUSABLE product? Can I REPURPOSE it else where? What is it’s WASTE lifecycle like? Is it RECYCLABLE? Will it end up in landfill? What is the PACKAGING like?
.
.
.
You can do this for ANYTHING you buy, and I’m sure, you will second-guess your purchases 💵. Which, in turn, will help you save money! Your food, cosmetics, furniture, clothing, supplies, etc. all have lifecycles of production, use, and disposal, that have impacted our Earth in one way or another. 🌊 .
.
.
Try my three rules before you buy your next item, and continue your journey to becoming #earthaware!🌎🌏🌍
