Can you nurture tomorrow by Being the Elder today?

Hello beautiful beings, I hope that you are moving through January with grace and integrity! We are deep within Capricorn Season, which is bringing our focus to Time and the way that wisdom and understanding is carried through it.

Let's take a moment to move ourselves into the Capricorn Archetype. Imagine yourself standing on a mountain, that you have dedicated yourself to climbing, to understanding the terrain, planning your course, and mastering the ascent. It has take time and effort, discipline to continue ahead, a faith that it will benefit yourself and others.

Now see yourself at the top, gazing out at the view, with the ability to see for miles. You can see where others are in their own journeys. You can recognise what you have overcome and learned along the way. You can feel the connection to that focus and dedication, and how it has shaped you over the years.

You have gone through the initiations, and are a more awakened and aware being. From this higher perspective,...

Distraction or Dharma - How do you know?

Hello beautiful beings, I hope you're having a wonderful start to our new calendar year! There is a lot of debate over when our new year should truly be held, as energetically, 1 January doesn't always naturally hold a feeling of clean slate or new beginnings. We have assigned that ourselves. So I am not going to tell you to set resolutions, or to create grand goals that you may not stick to. I'm going to ask you to go deeper.

At this time of year, we often seek goals or ideas outside of ourselves. We are inundated with tips and hacks, online and all around us. It isn't necessarily a bad thing- joining a gym now if you truly want to join could be perfect! But often these purchases and commitments are motivated by something that we do not truly feel within. And if we are unable to align with a goal, the chances of success drop rapidly over time.

So instead of looking at this week as week 1, look at it as week 12, or 24, or 40. We are in Capricorn season, which inspires us...

Where are you within the pendulum swing?

I've been meditating a lot lately about the past few years. I've been looking at how massive disruption to our lives created shifts in momentum, delayed plans, ended paradigms, and created space for phases to finish. For me, the dying off of identities and trajectories has been the most interesting aspect, as well as the most confusing or painful at times. While some things ground to a halt, others just got left in neutral, slowing in pace, until the movement stopped.

As someone who is used to working, planning, getting things done, and working with momentum to move ahead, the past few years have required me to reassess they ways that I operate, and to pivot, even when I wasn't sure I wanted to. But approaching this Winter Solstice, it feels that there is a possibility for change...

If you think of the seasons like a pendulum swinging, the Solstices represent the highest point of the swing, the edges, when the length of days and nights move from one extreme, back towards...

Are you over-giving or under-receiving? (I bet its both!)

Hello beautiful beings, I hope that you are feeling more joyful, aligned, and expanded here in the heart of Sagittarius Season! The emphasis for this astro season is on learning, exploration, and moving towards mastery. We have a chance to fine-tune direction, and to feel the benefits in the areas where we are most aligned.

But if there are areas where we are lacking in alignment, Tis the season to realise the effects...

I have been speaking to people a lot lately about depletion - feeling depleted within the body (exhausted, over-worked, overwhelmed), depleted in mind (unfocused, lack of clarity, distracted), and depleted within the spiritual body (unsupported, lacking guidance, tired beyond the physical). So I wanted to write about a polarity that we often undervalue or dismiss, even though it can cut through so many layers of us, as the impact ripples through every facet of our lives.

 

There is a direct correlation between over-giving and under-receiving, there is...

How do we Relinquish that which we cling to tightest?

My dreams over the past week or so have been strange- seemingly darker, unfamiliar, seen through strange lenses, all fitting well into the themes and views of Scorpio Season. These, along with countless other interactions, conversations, challenges, continue to bring me back to the question: How can we relinquish that which we cling to?

We approach the holiday season, where people celebrate some beautiful traditions, and some strive for an illusion. We can become fixed in how we believe a day, a conversation, an action should unfold, and then inevitably feel disappointment or defeated when it does not. Because in truth, it never could. The story in our minds was never real to begin with.

We cling to a brighter version of history, omitting the obstacles and conflict, and then wonder why we can never recreate it. But it never really happened that way before.

We cling to the unreal, un-lived, disembodied versions of what we feel we are supposed to experience, instead of...

Are you seeking more?

Hello beautiful beings, I hope that you are feeling light, free, and full of hope for the next 6 months! Eclipse Season ended on Monday, so we've have had 6 weeks to untangle and unfold. What a process it has been! I'd encourage you to reflect on what has changed for you, how your focus or direction has shifted, and what you want to work towards over the next 6 months.

 

Personally, over the past year or more, I have known that something was shifting, both within me, and in what I am called to offer. 

Once I began to design the changes, to talk to trusted friends and colleagues, I began to feel more aligned than I have in years. I am so excited to share all of this with you, but also feel totally centred, steady, and at peace with all that is unfolding. Peaceful Awareness, a beautiful place to be. 

Some of these visions are still developing, but I wanted to share what I can with you now. I have included some information below, with links to more....

Are you receiving the wisdom from within your lineage?

We are within one of my favourite windows of time, the few days around Samhain, All Hallows' Eve, and Day of the Dead. This little portal of time, where the veil thins, always feels little more magical and mysterious, open to possibility.

During these few days, I always take time to meditate with my ancestors, and explore my genetic lines, and I do this for a few reasons.

One of the questions I ask myself regularly is whether I am living my own path, or that of my ancestors'. I chose to be born into a family with a lot of religious leanings, often conservative, not always in alignment with what I believe. But they were and are in many ways dedicated, selfless, giving, and devoted to connecting with God or the Divine. I used to judge them for our differences, and then I began to recognise that we were using a lot of the same gifts and virtues, and had many of the same goals in mind. I too want to help people connect with the Divine.

So I look for my ancestors' gifts, virtues,...

Do you Receive what you Ask for?

Over the past few weeks, I have been given the same message over and over again- Receive what you ask for.

We can invest so much energy and effort into trying to manifest, create, call in, seek out, grasp, and cling. So many of us are trying to figure out the tricks and shortcuts, calling on our logical minds to solve a problem that we cannot see. Our blind spots, the areas we are afraid to address, make it feel more complicated and out of reach.

My message today is to simplify it all. Instead of running in circles, take a moment to sit in stillness, quiet your mind, and ask:

What have I been seeking, that is actually before me? And what are my barriers to receiving?

We build walls to try to keep from feeling vulnerable. We hide away from life. We run away from what is approaching. And this is all that stops us from having more love, abundance, freedom, connection, and joy.

The poet Rumi stated, "Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within...

Can you make your life feel New again?

Hello beautiful beings, I hope that you are feeling in flow with the upcoming eclipse, and are consciously preparing for the options and opportunities presenting!

When meditating on the message for this week, I heard "I am making all things New". And I started to wonder what that would entail...

We can often fear change, we are afraid of upsetting someone or something in our lives. We can avoid making a new choice because it challenges our sense of identity, or how we show up in the world. We stick with the things that cause us the most suffering because it is known. Or we continue with a habit that isn't wholly destructive, but also is not contributing to what we want to experience.

This is when we feel bored, stuck, stagnant, in a holding pattern.

We can dismiss a thought of newness even with the things that have been working for us, but could be moving into that realm of habitual. The meditation practice we started with a year ago is now feeling more like a chore. The daily...

Are your justifications all that is standing in your way?

Hello beautiful beings, I hope that you are feeling supported and lighter this eclipse season. We are building toward the most potent 2 weeks, between 14-28 October, and the energy is feeling pretty great so far!

I attended an event recently with around 40 people, and as an 'ice-breaker',we were asked to chat with the group and fill in names on a sheet, by asking questions provided. (These included questions such as have you been skydiving, who has a twin, who plays an instrument, etc.) One of the options was to find someone who'd had 9 hours of sleep the night before.

I was the only person in that large group that could claim this.

I was a little surprised, partially because I value sleep, and so I make it a priority to set aside enough time so that I can feel rested and energised. It seemed pretty simple to me, so I thought this would be a common point for more people attending. There was surprise from the others, and I was given about 40 different reasons why they...
