  • "I’m always on the go, anywhere...here or in the fields. I make clothing items worn in religious ceremonies. As far as I know, there are only two of us who make girdles. A nun taught me. I had about four lessons and then I used to come here and practise. She passed away soon after. I feel very calm when I’m doing this kind of work. It’s entirely different in the field, it’s fast work but when I’m here, I’m calmer. I do most of the work early in the morning, at 4 am, or late at night. In the last ten years, I’ve made mantles, capes, table cloths, canopies, lectern and pulpit covers, chasubles, banners and even fixed torn baldacchins. I’ve also remended fabrics used as church decorations. I try to do everything. But this is not my full-time job, this is only a hobby. I feel truly satisfied when people are happy with my work and say, “Thank you”." . #maltese #Malta #Gozo #religion #trade #craft #church #fabric #clothes #job #thepeopleofmalta #peopleofmalta #malta🇲🇹

  • As our lives have become more hectic, we are not always able to step out into nature as freely as we would like. Nature as we know grounds us, connects us to the earth, keeps us in the here and now... Carry this little Healing stone with you at all times, and when you feel anxious, or stressed simply just by holding this tiny stone you will feel and be aware that you are in the present, and become immediately grounded. Spiritual grounding means being in touch with nature. Firmly planted on the ground and in tune with our bodies. The word means just as it says - to be connected with the ground, to establish a strong and powerful energy connection with the earth. By grounding yourself, you connect with nature, in times of stress, anxiety, or sadness, use this Healing stone, to ground yourself. Being grounded is an essential skill for empaths, and highly sensitive people who pick up on emotions from the people and environment around them. It means that you're present in your body and connected with the earth, allowing you to feel centred and balanced no matter what's going on around you. If you are not grounded you're like a flimsy leaf being blown by the wind: very vulnerable and thrown off balance easily. But when you are well grounded, you are like a big tall oak tree, strong, solid. If something happens around you, it doesn't influence you as much, your life becomes more enriched, and you feel more at peace and balanced in your daily life.

  • ✨Je jouais très bien mon rôle, personne ne s’en doutait, et au téléphone je cachais mon mal-être à ma famille. . 💦En vérité au fond de moi, je criais à l’aide, espérant que quelqu’un me demanderait si j’allais bien et que je pourrais enfin dire non, et vider mon sac. Mais je n’avais pas le droit, je me l’étais interdit. Toujours la tête haute, le cœur rempli de ces larmes prêtes à me remonter aux yeux... en public je tenais bon. . 🔅 Un vendredi après-midi en arrivant chez moi, je m’étais effondrée, mon corps et mon esprit n’en pouvaient plus. Toutes ces accumulations, c’étaient beaucoup trop pour une personne, j’avais atteint mes limites. . 🌾En pleure, j’appelais Lionel, le suppliant de venir. Il habitait à 10 minutes de chez moi. Il ne voulait pas faire le déplacement car pour lui il s’agissait simplement d’un chagrin. Il était rester avec moi 30 minutes au téléphone. . 🍄Finalement, cela n’avait pas arranger les choses, lui aussi avait changé... les gens finissent toujours par changer. Pourquoi cela aurait été différent avec lui ? . 🌼Des idées noires m’étaient venu pour la première fois de ma vie. Lorsque je lui en avais fait part, il s’était fâché et avait raccrocher brusquement. . 🌸Je me souviens de ce moment comme-ci c’était hier. Comment avait-il oser me faire ça à moi? J’appelais à l’aide, mais personne ne me comprenais, je ne les comprenais pas... je me sentais tout simplement rejeté et invisible de tous...comme si je n’existais pas, que j’avais jamais réellement vécu, qu’on m’avait effacé de toutes les mémoires. . 🌺Le temps s’était arrêté autour de moi, et en une fraction de seconde je m’étais poser la question: si je mourrais, qui est-ce qui s’en apercevrait? . 🐚Je ressentais comme un couteau planté dans mon cœur, une douleur terrible, mais la réponse était évidente: PERSONNE. . 🙏🏼 « Et s’ils se maintenaient dans la bonne direction, Nous les aurions abreuvés, certes d’une eau abondante » Sourate 72, 16 #islam #convertie #religion #chronique #monhistoire #allah

  • . . . . . The trishula symbolism is polyvalent and rich. It is wielded by the god Shiva and is said to have been used to sever the original head of ganesha. Durga also holds a trishula, as one of her many weapons. The three points have various meanings and significance, and, common to Hindu religion, have many stories behind them. They are commonly said to represent various trinities—creation, maintenance and destruction; past, present and future; body, mind and atman; dharma or dhamma (law and order), bliss/mutual enjoyment and emanation/created bodies ; compassion, joy and love; spiritual, psychic and relative; happiness, comfort and boredom; pride, repute and egotism; clarity, knowledge and wisdom; heaven, mind and earth; soul, fire and earth; soul, passion and embodied-soul; logic, passion and faith; prayer, manifestation and sublime; insight, serenity and Bodhisattvahood or Arhatship (anti-conceit); practice, understanding and wisdom; death, ascension and resurrection; creation, order and destruction; the three gunas. When looked upon as a weapon of Shiva, the trishula is said to destroy the three worlds: the physical world, the world of the forefathers (representing culture drawn from the past) and the world of the mind (representing the processes of sensing and acting). The three worlds are supposed to be destroyed by Shiva into a single non-dual plane of existence, that is bliss alone. In the human body, the trishula also represents the place where the three main nadi, or energy channels (ida, pingala and shushmana) meet at the brow. Shushmana, the central one, continues upward to the 7th chakra, or energy center, while the other two end at the brow, there the 6th chakra is located. The trishula's central point represents Shushmana, and that is why it is longer than the other two, representing ida and pingala. #trishul #shiva #temple #spiritual #sanatanadharma #wisdom #culture #beliefs #psychic #religion #hinduism #wayoflife #dharma #goal #enlightenment #nirvana #bliss #soul #visualsoflife #sunset #thoughts #visionary #earthexperience #life #solitude #poseidon #vibes #india #light #aliens
