Are you feeling Hedonistic or Virtuous?

Are you feeling Hedonistic or Virtuous?

I saw the movie Babylon this week, on the big screen, in all its glory, and it was an experience! Bright, loud, intense for the eyes and ears, there was no looking away or tuning it out. I won't give away the details of the stories weaving through, but one of the main themes circled around Hedonism, and the quality of life it provides.

I think that we can all look at our pasts, possibly towards our younger years, and recognise those within our group of friends who were the hedonists. (Maybe you were the one?) Our hedonistic friends are always up for a good time, ready to celebrate, planning for the next party. They can be great cheerleaders and encouragers, and often have a knack for introducing connections. But they usually slip out with shoes in hand when it comes time to clean up, pick up the pieces, or make conscious, responsible decisions. I will admit, a little bit of hedonism...

New Year, Better Flow...

Hello beautiful beings, I hope that you had a wonderful holiday season, and are enjoying the beginning of a brand new calendar year. One of my favourite aspects of this time is opening a fresh, clean diary, and beginning to write in new plans and dreams for the 12 months ahead. What is your favourite ritual or practice this time of year?

Speaking of practices, I wanted to send a quick note about offerings over the next few months. We are now heading deep into Winter, but out of the darkness, and the plan is to provide events that reflect the energies present within the cosmos and here on Earth.

*For those nearby, dates are being confirmed for in-person Meditation & Subconscious Healing at the Wee Retreat in Glasgow. Numbers are growing again, and we're aiming to fill the studio, to open hearts and minds with each event.

*In terms of online offerings, we have seasonal events with Imbolc, and Equinox. Imbolc marks the...

Can you ever really return home?

Hello beautiful beings, I hope you are enjoying the end of the harvest season as you move towards the winter months! I have just arrived in North Carolina for the first time in 3.5 years, and through conversations with friends, reminders of old habits, and a return of the mind to the past, have been pondering whether we can return to anything fully. The paradoxes and contrasts that have surfaced have been interesting, and it feels that many of us will be facing the same questions, consciously or unconsciously over the coming weeks...

 

Greek Philosopher Heraclitus stated, "No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it's not the same river and he's not the same man.”

The water is refreshed every second, levels rise and fall, the bed changes, the banks erode to new shapes. And so do we. Change is inevitable, nothing stays the same. And anytime we try to return, or recreate the past, there will be new ingredients, information, input. While we may believe on one...

What are you choosing that erodes your Confidence?

Hello beautiful beings, I hope that this week you feel that you have more space to breathe!  We progressed into Autumn and into Libra Season, where our fixed judgements can be set aside, to breathe new life into fresh ideas and paradigms!  I am so excited to witness what will unfold! 

 

As I feel into the energy of October, there is a pull inward and then outward, like breathing.  In the northern hemisphere, we are moving into longer nights, less time with the sun.  One of the benefits is that we are called into home, and into ourselves, with more time to examine the outer world that you have been living in, and the ways it resonates with the inner realm...

The 'outer world' is created by the ways we relate and perceive.  Our relationships with our friends, family, work/life balance, money, movement, time all reflect the relationship we have with ourselves.  And so if the outer paradigm is not what you would wish...

Do your Surroundings Reflect your Magnificence?

Welcome to Virgo Season!  We are invited to reconnect with the goddess, the maiden, the High Priestess, and discover new ways to express these archetypes and their virtues in our daily lives.  

 

The archetype of the High Priestess is one I have frequently meditated with over the past few years.  She is dedicated to the divine, to healing and growth, and to bringing these to the earthly realm.  She is an alchemist, one who can harness the best of what is around her to manifest and create in real time, here and now.  She witnesses the magic in nature, the elements, the body, life, and uses these to direct, amplify, change the energy around her.  

Take a look at what you surround yourself with, in your home, office, and the spaces you inhabit.  Each of these possessions was chosen for a reason, all have a signature energy, which can amplify what is within you.  Crystals behave in the same way- they each have their own healing...

Are you Dedicated or Obligated?

Hello Navigators, I trust that you are moving through this eclipse portal with grace!

Right now, we are between the Full and New Moons, moving from shedding to creating.  Continue releasing-the more you do, the easier the next steps become.  Allow yourself to become weightless, burdenless, and even rudderless... Find the point of floating in serene silence, and then you will be ready for the next thought, step, act of creation.

 

We have moved from a mutable Sagittarius Full Moon and are heading towards a mutable Gemini New Moon.  The energy around is flowing, changing, mutating elements of our lives, bodies, and minds.  If we allow ourselves to get caught up in trying to control, we stop the magic before it can fully be realised.

Slow down, become still, allow yourself to deepen your breath, focus, attention, introspection. See if you can ask questions without jumping to a conclusion or fixed state of mind...play with the possibility and enjoy...

Virgo New Moon: Are you planting seeds that you truly want to grow?

We are moving towards an amazing New Moon in Virgo. I wanted to break this down a bit so that you can take full advantage of the magic we're immersed in this week!

First, the New Moon...  I see it as tabula rasa, a clean slate.  Take a moment to feel into the energy of a clean slate, a new beginning.  Feel the calm, the quiet, a sense of peace.

The New Moon is dark, without light.  For some, this can feel unnerving, with an inability to see what is coming, what we are moving towards.  But in the darkness, the past is erased, there is no set path to follow, nothing to fulfill.  You are there in the quiet, within your heart, fully present.  And fully open to possibility.

 

In the few days surrounding the New Moon, we plant seeds for the coming weeks and beyond.  We are able to make decisions regarding the experiences we would like to have, the ways we want to feel, and the quality of life that we want to live.

An Invitation to Initiation

You may have noticed that my offerings have evolved over the past year or so. So have I. And if you are following my work, so have you, and I'm so glad to have you with me on this journey!

With everything I write, every event that I offer, there is an opportunity for you to release the beliefs, emotions, behaviours, and labels that are untrue, so that you can BE the truth, an embodied example of highest potential.

My own process includes regular meditation, study, food and movement that nourishes my physical self, and in working with the elements and energies present, which support evolution and consciousness. I invite you to join me in these practices, the initiations...

What does Initiation mean? Put simply, it is a process that facilitates change for your benefit, for the better. Initiation is present in our daily lives, in smaller, more incremental ways. But we're going to work together, following new ways to open up the spaciousness within, initiating you into more profound...

Are you making things harder than they have to be?

(i.e. Are you allowing support when it would serve you?)

Hello beautiful beings! It’s been awhile since I’ve connected in this way, it has been quite a year so far!

I know that for many of us, 2018 was a difficult year to navigate. We were provided with opportunities to face some of our biggest challenges and fears. And so 2019 is the year to not only face them, but to make the changes necessary so avoid creating what no longer serves. This process can feel unsettling, or often destructive. But as we release old ways of thinking and being, we create space to allow a more expansive present and future.

So what can you do to move forward with more grace?

*Identify your best sources of support, and lean in.
Who are the cheerleaders in your life? Who consistently encourages you to stretch beyond your comfort zone? Who offers to help you, support you, or simply listen, when you feel that you could really use it?
Schedule a coffee, an evening out, a weekend away, or regular chats...

Are you being treated the way you DESIRE to be treated?

(i.e. Are you showing yourself the same respect you’d like within your relationships with others?)

As we approach the end of the year, we often look back to see what has worked, and what has not. And I find that any time something is not working, there is an opportunity to delve within, to understand what is ‘not working’ within. Our outer world reflects our inner, providing an opportunity to check in with what truly aligns in the present moment.

Over the past few weeks, issues around Honour and Respect have been discussed in sessions and classes. So many of us feel dissatisfied with our relationships, feeling that they are lacking in love, connection, consideration.
But the reality is that another cannot provide something that you yourself refuse to allow, or offer yourself.

How often do you diminish yourself through the choices you make?
How frequently do you put another before you, creating your own suffering?
Do you respect your time? Your energy? Your freedom?...
