Even though we've moved out of watery energy we've inhabited for most of March, many of us are still working with our current relationships, attempting to navigate the next steps. And the Libra Full Moon on Sunday is really going to help us to gain discernment on our alignments, or lack of.
When it comes to relationships, we can overcomplicate things, feel lost in the layers, overwhelmed by the moving parts. A relationship between 2 people also includes subconscious perspectives from their parents, siblings, grandparents, ancestral lines, community, cultural expectations, and influences from many differing points of view. You are a world interacting with another world. (And we wonder why it can feel difficult!)
I find that when decisions, understanding, or any other aspect of a relationship feels complex, the consistent answer is to strip it back to the core. And a core issue that surfaces repeatedly is a desire to belong. Brene Brown beautifully defines belonging, and what it is to...
We have entered March, but are not quite yet marching ahead (that comes towards the end of the month)!
Here, in the final sign of the zodiac, the last of winter, we enter the end. And the endings are up to you.
I see this time of year as a period between, not quite a rebirth, but a dying of sorts. Death often evokes fear of loss, a degree of grief, as we release what is known. But these periods of death invite powerful liberation, an opportunity to shed the old, to become more free. We often strive for the new beginning, a new way to feel or live, but until we allow the old to die away, we are unable to fully embody the light and lightness or the dawn.
Allow yourself to take some time to immerse yourself in the waters that will wash away what no longer thrives. Swim deep into yourself, into your dreams, your intuition, the aspects of you that fully understand your capacity to relinquish what has held you. This requires courage, a...
We are finally moving into the energy of spring, feeling more awake, more alive, and ready to create again! I know that since the last New Moon, I have felt like a new person, with more energy, more focus, and back into the swing of life and creation.
As we move out of hibernation and into rebirth and new growth, we can feel that there are many options, perhaps a few crossroads as well. We can often feel overwhelmed with choice. But the beauty of choice is that is provides opportunities to create, to learn, and to evolve.
Spend some time this weekend meditating on your current trajectories. Are they the same as before?
If they are, I would encourage you to expand your vision, and invite in new possibility. This year is not meant to be lived as the previous. The world is evolving and changing in so many ways, and so will we, if we honour the process, and welcome the wisdom.
I know that opportunities that I would have jumped at even a few...
There are periods of life that seem to flip us, our mindsets and trajectories. We feel ungrounded and unbridled, our common ways of moving no longer support us or facilitate momentum in ways they have before. These times are our best indication of change coming, an evolution of spirit and being.
Our human forms and patterns are part of an illusion that we are fixed or constant. We believe that we are these tangible, sensible beings, and that life is the same. Our skin, scars, physicalness is witnessed every day, the same thoughts and beliefs are present, our surroundings consistently reinforcing the feeling that we remain constant, fixed. Often times our perceived changes occur on a more subtle level, taking time, energy, space to occur. But internally, we are constantly changing. Our cells divide, work, die. We breathe, moving air within. Our heart pumps, moving blood through the body. Our nervous systems send...
Happy January and Happy New Year! I hope that your start to 2021 has been graceful and fun!
At this moment, both the Sun and the Moon are sitting in Capricorn (along with Venus and Pluto, there's a lot happening!). Because there is so much happening in this earthy sign, I wanted to take a moment to share some insight, to support you over the next week or so.
As we move around the zodiac, we more towards experience and wisdom, which is exactly what Capricorn embodies. Think of Capricorn as Grandmother/Grandfather energy, embodying the knowledge of experience and learning over vast periods of time, and the patience and compassion of one who has experienced or witnessed hardship. There is patience and understanding in every choice that is made, a willingness to deepen.
Capricorn is also a Cardinal sign, meaning it is willing to be initiated to new ways of living and being, new insight and knowledge, with the capacity to evolve. The symbol is the...
The week between Christmas and New Year is always one of my favourite weeks of the year. I spend time reflecting on what I have done, all that I've worked towards, what I have accomplished, and what is still evolving.
As this year has been so unique, I am finding that the usual questions I ask myself do not apply as much as they normally would. This year has been a year of meditation, introspection, of pivoting, and being more creative and inventive. We have been given opportunities to change focus, to flow in new directions, and to shake up the paths we have followed so that we can perhaps find another. As I spend time looking back at 2020, I am reminded of all that I have accomplished, mostly in ways that were not predicted or planned for.
My highlights include a trip to Cambodia to visit the school I had helped to build. I started the new year in Cambodia and Bali, two magical, beautiful, delicious...
Over the past weeks (especially during this eclipse season) I've witnessed layers and layers falling away. Old ideas and identities have not held up, and I am so grateful for the opportunity to shed them!
One common issue that I have witnessed repeatedly in sessions and courses, is a feeling of heavy burden and obligation what can weigh life down. And nearly all of it is attached to old roles and identities, and ways of living that no longer align.
We are energetically carrying the false identities of who we 'used to be', wondering why we are exhausted, confused about the load we carry!
"Oh what we could be if we stopped carrying the remains of who we were" -Tyler Knott Gregson (one of my favourite poets, here's his website!)
Our feelings of burden and exhaustion are clear indicators that we are limiting ourselves with obligation, promises to be a certain way, when we know it is not authentic, it is not true. ...
Happy Sunday! I hope you are enjoying this Quarter Moon in Pisces, which invites us to play in the energy of the unknown, in possibility and opportunity!
I spent this week reconnecting with my inner child, remembering the simple ways to have fun in my life. So I've been doing a lot of singing and dancing, some art, writing, and reading. I've been asking my imagination to expand, along with my intuition, so that I can dream beyond my comfort zone and my knowing mind. Needless to say, this week has been lighter and brighter than previous weeks! It is amazing to witness what shifts when the decision is made to change focus and activity!
I was co-running an event a few weeks ago, speaking to a group about the power of initiation. And in real time, I was offered an opportunity to navigate one myself. An aura migraine was triggered, which not only effected my vision, but also my speech. While the timing was terrible, I can see that what...
