疫情肆虐一年多來，我也開始愛上自己手調精油，除了瑜伽課時在呼吸練習前嘉慧學生 – 從沾有精油溫潤的雙手深呼吸，在深吸深吐之間，植物香氣讓每個人嘴角上揚、汎起微笑 – 之外，我也很享受調精油時東嗅西聞，東滴西滴，東攪攪西攪攪的巫師/薩滿fu；以及，自己洗完澡後，當作小小的自我靜心、滋養儀式- 把手調精油塗滿全身，也從頭到脚感謝著辛苦的身體。#支持南非當地生產有機品牌
聖經哥林多前書（Corinthians 6:19-20）以及瑜伽大師艾揚格（BKS Iyengar）都曾經提及“我們的身體是一座聖殿”，我們該尊敬他/她，好讓我們的聖靈（Holy Spirit）、靈魂（soul）安住在内。
🍋I love blending essential oils and supporting local. Since my lovely colleagues shared their blended essential oils with me during Yoga Therapy training last year and my book translation related to essential oils blending , I started to fall in love with the process of blending oils – it gives me a sense of being a medicine woman 😆- and smell of the nature.
🍊 While sharing those DIY blend essential oils with yogis in my classes before pranayama practice (sometimes during Savasana), I can see their faces starting to wear smiles (no nudity involved 😊) through each deep inhalation and exhalation from smelling the oil on their hands. As for me, applying DIY blend essential oils on my body after shower is a little ritual to be grateful for my body since last year during national lockdown.
🍋For the Corinthians 6:19-20🔸 and yoga master BKS Iyenger 🔸 both ever mentioned “your body is a temple”; therefore, we need to honor and appreciate our body so that the Holy Spirit and our souls can reside within peacefully.
🍊 The so called third wave of pandemic is hitting Jo’burg and Taiwan (the pandemic just started several months ago) quite hard now. We’re all in this together. I hope you have tools to meet your peace and “dance with the waves of sea and sing with the sky,touch the sands with love and let your mind fly high” (Debasish Mridha). Love and blessings~💖
Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu 🙏
🔸Corinthians 6:19-20 Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.”
🔸“The body is your temple. Keep it pure and clean for the soul to reside in.” – BKS Iyengar……
