Carlee Benear z Texasu je matkou troch detí. Dlhodobo sa venuje joge, no v poslednej dobe sa preslávila nie celkom štandardnými fotografiami. Aj keď sa mnoho mamičiek snaží prelomiť tabu ohľadom dojčenia na verejnosti a o kŕmení bábätka sa čoraz viac hovorí, fotky Carlee stále poburujú. Snímky, ktoré ju zachytávajú v najrôznejších pózach počas jogy, sú vytvorené počas dojčenia. Pohár internetových užívateľov pretiekol, keď sa na instagrame objavili fotky, ako mamička menštruuje. Ako celú vec vnímate vy?
It's not everyday that I get a good length video of #breastfeedingyoga , especially not on a day that I learn a new trick (how to tuck my foot behind my head in scorpion) 🙌. She definitely doesn't make it easy. In our stage of nursing, right now, we are at all day. She wants to explore the world and figure out how things work, but needs a boob to tug, hug and plug while she soaks it all in. I'm always here to support her and , as you can see, she supports my needs too. This 18 months has been a wonderful bonding experience with her. As I sit here to write this, she is content next to me stroking my arm while I breathe through my passing thoughts. It's also not every day that we are so in sync as this 👌. Today is a special day though, we got to see an historical Super Blue Blood Moon eclipse as a family, and during that I was blessed with blood of my own. I am so honored. Everyone had energy today and we all felt drawn to connect that energy. We washed ourselves in moonlight and sunlight today. I celebrated the skin I'm in, the body of a creatrix and the heart seeds of children I birthed through the joining of two worlds. We celebrated US.
V dnešnej dobe nie je ničím neobvyklým, ak sa na internete objaví fotka nahého tela, ženy pri pôrode, novorodeniatka tesne po príchode na svet alebo dojčiacej mamičky. Niektorí to schvaľujú, iní to považujú za intímnu vec, ktorá by mala ostať za dverami domácnosti. 30-ročná mamička Carlee Benear z Texasu však fotky počas dojčenia „povýšila“ na novú úroveň. Počas toho, ako kŕmi svoje bábätko, sa menia jej polohy pri joge a niekedy to vyzerá obzvlášť nepohodlne, najmä čo sa týka bábätka.

Práve pohodlie dieťatka je to, na čo upozorňujú mnohí internetoví „kritici“. Carlee však nie je žiadna hanblivka a hranicu posunula ešte ďalej. Uverejnila fotky, na ktorých viditeľne menštruuje, pričom na jednej z fotografií sa k nej túlia deti. Krvavé nohavičky podľa mnohých nepatria na instagram, no Carlee svoj čin obhajuje.
Goddess forbid we even talk about our periods in public….everything must be smothered in white and kept perfectly clean and hidden. That’s what society shoves down our throats. Had to bring out these amazing @cutebootylounge white leggings and Moon lamp from @mindfulbohemian to dive into this one!! Let me share with you what your menstrual cycle does NOT have to be like: Bloated, icky, uncomfortable, shameful, traumatic, dirty, hidden, crampy & PMS-y, intolerable, irregular, heavy, hormonally out of control, full of mood swings and uncontrollable junk food or sugar cravings. What if it was more like a time that you cherished and held sacred? What if you looked forward to it every month? What if it was orgasmic, blissful and felt like you were melting into your body with ecstasy? What if you were able to surrender sensually into a day of relaxation, rest, rituals, honoring and pleasure? What if it was the time of the month where you felt so deeply connected to your yoni, sensuality, inner wisdom, intuition and divinity? What if you could create and go inward and dance with your shadows and heal? What if you felt seduced by your menstrual cycle? We are connected to mother earth, our fellow sisters, our wombs and the moon! It's sole purpose is to create, to manifest. From spark, to flame, to fire, to ashes, to spark again… it is a symbolic creative process that can be applied to many aspects of life. The menstrual cycle is about womens’ energy and power; the power to be, to restore, to receive & to create. Women do not learn magic, women are magic. It is nature, it is our birthright, and we should be forever thankful for the opportunities our menstrual cycles bring us. Women are Natural Shamans, they just need to understand and use the power they hold within. 👇👇👇👇👇
Jedna z fotografií už bola z instagramu medzitým stiahnutá, no mamička si stojí za svojím. „Mať pravidelný mesačný cyklus je znakom zdravia a nie všetky ženy majú to šťastie. Oslavujme život vrátane menštruácie!“
„Je to krv, z ktorej sa prakticky narodili moje deti priamo do rúk môjho manžela. Tento krásny moment nie je poburujúci, v našej rodine má jednoducho uznanie.“
✨"In our prophecies it is told that we are now at the crossroads: Either unite spiritually as a global nation, or be faced with chaos, disasters, diseases, and tears from our relatives’ eyes. We are the only species that is destroying the source of life, meaning Mother Earth, in the name of power, mineral resources, and ownership of land. Using chemicals and methods of warfare that are doing irreversible damage, as Mother Earth is becoming tired and cannot sustain any more impacts of war. I ask you to join me on this endeavor. Our vision is for the peoples of all continents, regardless of their beliefs in the Creator, to come together as one at their Sacred Sites to pray and meditate and commune with one another, thus promoting an energy shift to heal our Mother Earth and achieve a universal consciousness toward attaining Peace. As each day passes, I ask all nations to begin a global effort, and remember to give thanks for the sacred food that has been gifted to us by our Mother Earth, so the nutritional energy of medicine can be guided to heal our minds and spirits."✨~Chief Arvol Looking Horse *lifting all my Brothers &Sisters up in prayer* (((❤))) ✨🌎✨ #NODAPL #standwithStandingRock #waterislife 🌳This is a fight for saving Mother Earth and protecting All who live here🌳 #yogawithkids #breastfeedingyoga #babynumber3 #meditation #leagueofextraordinaryyogis ##dreaminghopper🌬️ #igyogamoms #yogainspiration #yogaeverydamnday #yogapractice #focus #forearmfriday #educatebeforeyouvaccinate OUTFIT- @soulflowerbuds #soulflowerbuds
„Počas každého cyklu si nájdem čas, aby som za to poďakovala. Prajem si, aby viac žien dokázalo nájsť lásku k tomuto symbolu ženskosti. Preto zdieľam tieto momenty skutočného materstva so všetkým, čo k tomu patrí.“
"Until the whole world is free to agree with you or disagree with you, until you have given the freedom to everyone to like you or not like you, to love you or hate you, to see things as you see them, or to see things differently – until you have given the whole world its freedom – you'll never have your freedom." ~ Adyashanti PHOTO @realteelphoto #igyogamoms #postpartumhealth #1monthold #bręastisbęst #educatebeforeyouvaccinate #soulflowerbuds
„Je na čase, aby sme sa v tejto veci dostali hlbšie k jadru. Prečo nás tieto veci trápia a poburujú? Sú to ozaj naše vlastné názory alebo za nás hovorí mozog ovplyvnený pravidlami spoločnosti?“
#motherhoodmantra by Maya Angelou "My mother spoke highly of me, and to me. But more important, whether they met her or simply heard about her, she was there with me. She had my back, supported me. This is the role of the mother. I really saw clearly, and for the first time, why a mother is really important. Not just because she feeds and also loves and cuddles and even mollycoddles a child, but because in an interesting and maybe an eerie and unworldly way, she stands in the gap. She stands between the unknown and the known. "Go," she whispered. "Go. Show them you spell your name W-O-M-A-N." • From the book Mom & Me & Mom #forearmfriday
Fotografie, na ktorých je mamička troch detí s poodhaleným prsníkom a dojčí, sú podľa nej úplne normálne. Obhajuje ich tým, že pri troch deťoch je často veľmi náročné nájsť si čas pre seba a chvíľku jogy.
If you listen to other people tell you how you should be and if you allow people to place their fears on you, you will never live a day in your life. Just because no one has done it doesn't make it impossible. Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower. If you look at history, innovation doesn't come just from giving people incentives; it comes from creating environments where their ideas can connect. Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom. We can't be afraid of change. You may feel very secure in the pond that you are in, but if you never venture out of it, you will never know that there is such a thing as an ocean, a sea. Holding onto something that is good for you now, may be the very reason why you don't have something better. I have been and still am a seeker, but I have ceased to question stars and books; I have begun to listen to the teaching my blood whispers to me. Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate. At the center of your being you have the answer; you know who you are and you know what you want. And you? When will you begin that long journey into yourself? #JalaluddinRumi #laotzu #cgjung #hermannhesse #cjoybellc #aristotle
Deťom sa chce venovať naplno a každý deň ich priúča rôznym cvičeniam. Puto je pre ňu obzvlášť dôležité a svoje deti nechce odsúvať na druhú koľaj.
My promise to you ,dear children, is this. I will always lift you up even if my world may be upside down. Just as hard times pass, good times do too. And I am forever committed to you. To teach you , to nourish you , to watch you grow. The limits of my love you will never know. The will to be better for you every day will never stop, diminish or fade away. You are my rocks,now my purpose in life and your mama will stand strong with you through whatever plight. I will not be bias in my opinions or ways , but don't think for a second I won't show you how the universe sways. Center your light and you can do it all. Don't stress ,my baby, mama will be here when you fall. I'll watch you grow into unique beings. My heart, my love is what you'll be seeing. You'll change the lives of everyone you meet, don't take that for granted or that's how you will be beat. Everyone too, will gift something to you. Do good unto others and act like you never knew. You have all the power imaginable and it's all up to you to see what the universe has in store for you. I will guide you and love you , I'll do all I can do to show you the power that love has within you. #nursingthoughts #divineyourself #postpartumhealth #selflove.

Maramaylee had to join in on Day 1 of #thankquility with a hovering #headstand Do you invert your baby? They LOVE it!! If you don't I bet this freaks you out, rest assured it is safe!! If you do then you know the benefits are amazing!! It is great for their spine and helps expand the blood vessels in their brains. Babies are actually very able to withstand lots of different positions even though we don't really put them into many different ones other than the classic cradle style. Upside down play is a great way to let the spine hang straight, release pressure, reduce stress and encourage calm. Having trouble nursing , colic or is your baby just cranky? You can hang them by their feet or hold them by their hips, but I can bet your baby will feel much better after some upside down time. "The first year of life is the greatest time of spinal elongation. A baby’s spine lengthens by 50% by the time they reach one year old! At no other time does this growth happen so rapidly, so you want to make sure your baby is in proper alignment ensuring proper symmetrical growth.The first year of life is also the time of spinal curvature development. There are curves called “lordosis” present in your neck and lower back, and curves called a “kyphosis” in your mid-back and sacrum.These spinal curves are necessary for movement, balance, upright posture, protection, and shock absorption. Without being in alignment during this crucial time your baby’s spinal curves may not develop properly – giving them a poor foundation for later in life. Optimize the function of the nervous system. In infants the central nervous system also controls their growth and development. Being the time of greatest brain and proprioceptor (body position sensors) development, you want to ensure the health of the nervous system. This is what chiropractors who take care of babies look for, disturbances in their nervous systems that interfere with healthy growth and development." Cole Bradburn Doctor of chiropractics #wildbabesyoga
Preto sa rozhodla, že skĺbi chvíľku pre seba, kedy sa venuje joge, s prípadným dojčením, pokiaľ je to potrebné a dieťa je hladné. Tak trávia čas stále spolu a venujú sa tým najprirodzenejším činnostiam, na ktorých nie je nič zlé.
Welcome to Day 31 of #anatomyofselflove POSE AND AFFIRMATION @weirdomandys INFORMATION POST @carleebyoga Original nursing bra by @bravadodesigns The Mother-Child Energy Connection Usually when talking about subtle body and energetic teachings we are talking about our own subtle anatomy – our chakra (energy center) or meridian (energy line) mappings, and what physical body parts and psychological states they relate to. But within all of the energy healing and spiritual traditions that contain subtle body teachings, there are also teachings on our energetic connections to others – mappings of the ways we connect and share our energies. Within these teachings, the mother-child energy line, or cord, holds a special place. When we talk about energy lines and cords, we aren’t simply talking about energy exchange. Everything is energy, so of course whenever we interact with someone there is an exchange. Every conversation, encounter, or even glance, involves an interaction of vibration – it is an energetic encounter, based on both parties’ thoughts and feelings. Our intuitions and ‘sixth senses’ stem from these exchanges. Energy lines and cords go beyond energy exchange. They are direct energy lines that form between us and each of the individuals most prominent in our life. All together they create an energetic tapestry that mirrors our physical and emotional relationships. These lines may be heart-based (heart chakra) for those closest to us, or power-based (navel chakra) with those with whom we have complicated control issues, or in many cases both. They also may be based on shared energy or exchanges linked to almost any of the other chakras – for example, survival-based (first chakra), sex-based (second chakra), communication-based (throat chakra), vision-based (third eye), or spiritually-based (crown chakra.) Often they are a combination of many of these, reflecting the complex nature of our relationships themselves. (CONTINUED IN COMMENTS)
Too old for skin to skin?! Holding them too much?! Never. All you new moms and dads out there can breathe a giant sigh of relief and ignore everything you’ve ever heard about “spoiling” a baby with attention and cuddles. There is just no way to hold a baby too much. Really and truly. No freaking way. A mother's touch enhances attachment between mother and child; it can signify security and, depending on the type of touch, it can generate positive or negative emotions. (Playing pat-a-cake makes babies happy, while a sudden squeeze from Mom often signals a warning not to interact with a new object).We begin receiving tactile signals even before birth, as the vibration of our mother's heartbeat is amplified by amniotic fluid. No wonder then that touch plays a critical role in parent-child relationships from the start. It's an essential channel of communication. In the first two years, babies rely on a strong bond with their mothers for healthy brain development. The development of cerebral circuits depends on it because 80 percent of brain cells grow in the first two years of life, problems in that development can affect people for the rest of their lives. Hold them tight, grow the hippocampus (a key brain structure that is essential to learning, memory and response to stress) and know that showering your baby with love and affection has zero negative consequences and is 100 percent beneficial. Newborns grow faster and have more improved mental and motor skill development. Children raised with more physical interaction tended to be less aggressive and violent. Partners who cuddle have been shown to have lower stress levels ,blood pressure and improved immune function. Elderly people who receive the soothing, affirming experience of touch have been shown to better handle the process of aging and passing with dignity. So the next time someone ridicules you for "ruining" your children , look them in the eye, give them attention, smile at them, and show them physical affection, chances are they'll feel better about it.

Joga Carlee navyše pomáha. Začala s ňou pri druhom dieťati, pretože len čo sa jej narodil prvý syn, trpela popôrodnou depresiou. Práve preto sa rozhodla skúsiť niečo nové a joga jej pripadala ako veľmi dobrý nápad. Našla si tak cestu sama k sebe a každý deň sa joge venovala aj počas tehotenstva. Práve joga jej pomáha vyrovnať sa s množstvom vecí a nájsť vnútorný pokoj a harmóniu.
PHOTO by @realteelphoto Day 8 of #anatomyofselflove INFORMATION POST Dalai Lama: "I believe that if we stop to think, it is clear that our very survival, even today, depends upon the acts and kindness of so many people. Right from the moment of our birth, we are under the care and kindness of our parents; later in life, when facing the sufferings of disease and old age, we are again dependent on the kindness of others." To receive kindness does us good. Think of a time someone has been kind to you, in a big or a small way: A passerby gave your directions to reach the station or a stranger threw herself in a river to save you from drowning. What effect did it have on you? Probably a beneficial one, because if someone helps us when we need it, we feel relief. And everyone likes to be heard, treated with warmth and friendliness, understood, and nourished. Something similar happens on the other side of the equation: Giving kindness does us as much good as receiving it. . . . The true benefit of kindness is being kind. Perhaps more than any other factor, kindness gives meaning and value to our life, raises us above our troubles and our battles, and makes us feel good about ourselves. Love is as critical for your mind and body as oxygen. It's not negotiable. The more connected you are, the healthier you will be both physically and emotionally. The less connected you are, the more you are at risk. It is also true that the less love you have, the more depression you are likely to experience in your life. Love is probably the best antidepressant there is because one of the most common sources of depression is feeling unloved. Most depressed people don't love themselves and they do not feel loved by others. They also are very self-focused, making them less attractive to others and depriving them of opportunities to learn the skills of love. There is a mythology in our culture that love just happens. As a result, the depressed often sit around passively waiting for someone to love them. But love doesn't work that way. To get love and keep love you have to go out and be active and learn a variety of specific skills. CONTINUED IN COMMENTS
Zdá sa, že názory verejnosti Carlee veľmi netrápia a stojí si za svojím, že na prirodzeným činnostiach nie je nič zlé. Vraví, že mnoho matiek ju podporuje a píšu jej aj ženy, ktoré vďaka jej fotkám zmenili pohľad na svet.
A few things I'd like to share from Frequency by Penney Pierce. To know what you prefer, instead of humbly saying “Amen” to what the world tells you you ought to prefer, is to have kept your soul alive. •Robert Louis Stevenson Don’t ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive. -Harold Whitman Take care of your body with steadfast fidelity. The soul must see through these eyes alone, and if they are dim, the whole world is clouded. ~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
