How to Be Your Own Superhero! My Recent Power Talk at #HeroTalks (VIDEO)

Who is your favorite super hero?

Mine is Wonder Woman, all day long. Hence the bangles, probably. You can’t get more Sacred Bombshell than Wonder Woman. Storm is also a KAW, Kick Ass Woman.

I could also totally run away with Batman or Spiderman if the Zombie Apocalypse was upon us. And Wolverine? Le sigh.

But what if your favorite superhero was you?

Introducing Sacred Bombshell Retreats by Abiola (+ a Poll)

Retreats are a way to recharge, find healing, and gain the tools to really step into your self and your life.

Here’s what The Good Retreat Guide has to say on the matter: 

“Men and women have always needed at times to withdraw temporarily from daily living in order to nourish their inner life of the spirit. Moses retreated to Mount Sinai. Jesus went into the desert. Buddhists annually make a retreat. Moslems go for a day of prayer and fasting within the mosque. The Hindu withdraws to the temple or wanders alone across the land. Native Americans journey to the spirit world. In our ordinary lives, the kitchen or the shed at the bottom of the garden may be where we go to retreat from the world.”

Fitness Diary: Respect for My Kettlebells & Running Your Own Race

The unique shape of kettlebells provides the “unstable force” for handling. This is key for the effectiveness of the kettlebell exercises.Unlike traditional dumbbells, the kettlebell’s center of mass is extended beyond the hand, similar to Indian clubs or ishi sashi. This facilitates ballistic and swinging movements. Variants of the kettlebell include bags filled with sand, water, or steel shot. The kettlebell allows for swing movements and release moves with added safety and added grip, wrist, arm and core strengthening. 

Kettlebells were developed in Russia in the 1700s to weigh crops. The farmers became stronger and found the kettlebells useful for showing off their strength during festivals. Then the Soviet army used them as part of their physical training and conditioning programs. Though kettlebells had been in the United States in some form since the 1960s or earlier, Dragon Door Publications and Pavel Tsatsouline developed the first instructor certification program back in 2001. — via Wikipedia

Ladakh and prayer beads

‘What Are those Mala Prayer Beads You Wore to the Beach, Abiola?’ Plus Beach Day Photo Diary

Prayer beads are used by members of various religious traditions such as Hinduism, Buddhism, Christianity, Islam, Sikhism and the Bahá’í Faith to mark the repetitions of prayers, chants or devotions, such as the rosary of Virgin Mary in Christianity, and dhikr (remembrance of God) in Islam.

Since the beads are fingered in an automatic manner, they allow the user to keep track of how many prayers have been said with a minimal amount of conscious effort, which in turn allows greater attention to be paid to the prayers themselves. — via Wikipedia
