My Sunday was truly a day spent counting my blessings. I was grateful for life, for loved ones and all things bright and beautiful around me.
I began to surrender on a journey to let go of what I can’t control. I can’t control ‘Feeling physically tired’…I went back to sleep, because my mind, body and soul needed rest, needed sleep.
I practiced kindness…watered the plants, the herbs in my home, without haste. I talked to them, spent time running the water to reach a temperature not to startle, the roots. I was kind to myself, when I felt myself drifting in and out of sleep…I didn’t fight it. Instead I gathered my pillows cushions and duvet and immersed myself in a sound Bath of gongs, mantra and affirmations of love, light, healing, for love, health, protection and projection.
I listened to my heart…because it is always right.
Finally, the most blissful act of all is…To ‘Breathe’ just to ‘Breathe‘. I inhaled, slowly, deeply. Exhaled, slowly, deeply. Recognising each deep inhalation…was an emotional fight to make haste to exhale out, make haste to move on with life, with time. I gave myself permission, an invitation to… Slow my breath… releasing guilt for taking the time to just ‘Breathe’…Releasing the tension in the body, roaming thoughts of the mind. The thoughts that stop, rest, sleep, that create a tired mind, body and soul.
My Sunday “to do” List
Count My Blessings, Let go of what I can’t control, Practice Kindness, Listen to my Heart, Just Breathe.
I couldn’t quite get a photo of the NewMoon Eclipse, but the dusky blue, grey light was a vision to capture.
The New Moon is here…Its time to move forward…Move forward with a list of treats, blessings, joy and happiness…A time for harmony of the mind!
Soooo I have been creeping into this phase with dashes of “tired, but wired’sleepless nights, vivid dreams.…I am bursting with New, fighting with old…My monkey mind, iffng and butting. Making every thought and action, exhausting, guilty or unfulfilled.
Today, I pledge to myself to move forward into my destiny…Set my intentions, embrace the energy of the Moon, Release the fear, roaming thoughts….Ask myself What does the New Moon represent?…..
The New Moon represents the start of a new lunar cycle. A time to start something new, start a fresh.. begin a new chapter, project…
I invite you to use the Energy of the New Moon, to set intentions. NEWBEGINNINGS, reflect on the old, set intentions forthe new.
Refresh the mind, body & soul…with daily Meditation, Affirmations…Create mediation between the Mind & Body.
What would you like to create? What are you feeling? Is your ‘Mind’ the mediator, Or is your ‘Body’ the mediator?
Relax into this moment…Bask in the sleepless nights, to free your mind of roaming thoughts. Use the power of your breath….To just breathe…inhale deeply……Pause, take a moment…to grasp the new, positive, gratitude of life. Vision of the blessings.
Inspire your mind, using the breath of life…Giving you new thoughts, intentions...
Exhale deeply using the strength and the power of your lungs…..Let go of Negativity, blocks….to clear the old, what no longer serves you. Giving you Grace, time to be reflective.
There is nothing holding you back, but you, yourself, I, Me, yes you, my darling…Take this moment your moment release, let go....For the new.
Lock down. We are now into the first full week of our, maybe short temporary lock down. I much rather call this ‘National Lock Down, Naughty Step’. Because that’s what it feels like.
We are sailing through a sea of changing waters. This persistent change in waters has created waves of emotions and emotional states.
The emotional well-being of the young, mature, old & vulnerable is being tried, tested and exhausted.
I feel my boat, is beginning to rock. Rock back, rock back and forth because there is so much constant change, inconsistencie and a force to make things, almost normal again….a force to make things continue.
How do you feel, how do you really feel, in this moment?
Is your boat rocking?
This time of constant change, brings a call for Meditation, a space, a time to go within.
The next few weeks, gives me as a teacher, facilitator, giver the opportunity to share, hold space to create a meditative practice to gather strength from within to stay present in time, for the changes as they come.
To stand firm…whilst my boat rocks, rocks back and forth….
Join me on a journey through Lock Down. Embrace time, create time, Embrace Space, Create Space. ‘Be the change, to see the change’
Friday 2nd October, ‘Harvest Full Moon’ invited my, mind, body and soul to wax and wane…release, recharge….laugh, rejoice, cry, anger to all that no longer serves me.
This night is, the ‘last final Full Moon’ before the season’s change, it is seen as an opportunity to ‘harvest’ everything we can before we embrace into the new season.
Although for me the introduction of the darker, wet days stopped my vision to see this historic beauty, the energy was rising inside me…
The ‘Harvest’ moon, waxed and waned through my mind and body gently forcing me into the peak of feminine moodiness.
Beginning with my final work task, crashing causing me to miss a deadline, IT became my frustration. I struggled with miss-communication. A feeling of being left high and dry. A long awaited maintenance appointment, resulting no work being carried out. Leaving a state of visual confusion and disruption; rippling into my what was meant to be my declutterd livingspace!
Full Moon, Full Moon! What are you doing to me?
I felt a surge of energy, birthing the need to bask in the moonlight. I ran from room to room, north to south, east to west looking high in the noticable lighter night sky, no vision of the moon for me….
Failing to recognise the feeling of the change of my energy, it was about to peak for the night tocome!.
Feminine energy is taken from the moon, understanding its beauty, is just as mysterious and mystical has watching it in the sky.
Women will continue to change in line with the moon, waxing and waning.
Our ‘Moon Cycles’ alludes to the phases of the moon, our periodic cycle.
The mind, body and soul of a woman gains strength, intensity, increases and decreases with the flow and energy of the moon.
Honour your mind body and soul to move with this ‘Moon’ energy of vastness. You will be pleasantly surprised with the surge of power.
Inviting the ‘Luna’ pathwayto inhale and recharge or exhale and break through into the lunatic asylum breaking barriers of chains of fear releasing what no longer serves.
When the moon is full and bright, it is no doubt the latter; it takes hold of your mind, opening up to wax and wane.
Embrace the shift, of mental state, happiness, laughter, joy, sadness, tears, anger ….waxing and waning through your moods….just let it flow.
Reflecting on the energy of the harvest moon…it did no doubt, affect my moods and actions.
I feel my decluttering has become stagnant, along with my energy. My thoughts and actions have become slow and cloudy. My mission with GOD…Generating Organising Destroying…has become laboured and lethargic.
The leaves are changing, from a deep luscious green, to a deep golden brown. Nature is clearing for the winter hibernating weather.
Tuesday we transitioned into the season, Autumn surrounded by change.
Autumn gifts us with the shedding of leaves from trees Autumn is truly a beautiful season. Colours are warming, golden browns and oranges, yet the light of our days start to become shorter.
What does the Autumn mean? ...What does the Autumn bring…Our senses are telling us the season Summer, has come to an end has we begin to feel a change in temperature. We start to feel, a pull for change, clear, declutter.
Embrace this pull, by clearing what no longer serves you purpose. To relax and unwind into the warmth of a space that creates harmony and peace inside and outside
Nature informs us of this by leaves shedding, falling becoming brown and crisp. Drifting from the luscious green season of Summer.
Tuesday’s Kundalini Yoga session was an invite, to create space in our minds, create changes in our Actions and Reactions.
Finding the Good in ourselves to Become like Angels
Today is September 22nd 2020, at approximately 2.30pm we will be in Autumn.
The AutumnEquinox2020….The sun will be exactly above Earth’s equator, moving from north to south….
At the time of an Equinox, Earth’s Northern and Southern Hemispheres are receiving the sun’s rays equally.
If you have been experiencing a feeling of release, letting go, or simply decluttering.
This is the time to clear your nest, clear your home of what no longer serves you…allow the leaves to fall, open your heart, your space to change.
