Anyone else struggle with this truth? 🙋🏼♀️I had one of those days...a day where the world kept asking and asking and asking and I kept striving and striving and striving.
By the time I got in my car to drive home, every nerve ending was buzzing with adrenaline, my hands were shaking, and my mind was racing a million miles an hour.
How could I have explained that more clearly? What should I have said differently? How can I fix this or solve that? How can I prepare more, get smarter, BE BETTER?!? You can’t be EVERYTHING to EVERYONE. And that’s ok.

Itagaki's style is really inspiring for me, I hope to incorporate his exaggerated proportions and emphasized features of the human figure into my style of drawing humans.
Today I want to bring you an actual technique of meditation called Isha Kriya.
Isha Kriya was created by a well known Mystic and Yogi named Sadhguru.
In my experience, Isha Kriya has been more effective than any other meditation I've done, and in half the time.
This meditation is perfect for people who have never tried meditation, and for people who have some years under their belt in meditation.
So what is Isha Kriya?
The easiest way to do this meditation is to listen to Sadhguru's guide to Isha Kriya. You can find this on youtube.
But if you want to know now, then this is how you do Isha Kriya.
First you sit cross legged, back up straight, you can use a back rest.
Then you put your hands on your lap or on your knees, but your palms must be open and facing up.
Then you tilt your head up slightly and focus mildly between your eyebrows.
When taking a breath inward, you mentally say "I am not the body" When breathing outward, mentally say "I am not even this mind"
Repeat these two sentences with inhalation and exhalation, at least 20 times.
Then with your head still tilted upward, you begin making an "Ahhhhhhhh" sound.
Inhale, then repeat the "Ahh" sound about 7 times.
This process will take about 15 minutes, and you will instantly see the benefits if you execute this right.
I've been practicing Isha Kriya for about 4 days now, and I noticed immediately some improvements, and real results.
I feel much more conscious, much less stressed, more grounded and focused. I also notice that I'm able to let go of body tension and negative emotions much easier now.
