Hello beautiful beings, I hope that you are feeling nourished, strong, and ready for the summer months! Energetically, the past few weeks have been interesting, and conversations keep coming back to the same theme: Resilience.
I have explored the energy and ideas around resilience for years, having worked within the addiction field, witnessing how some people are able to learn to move with life a little more gracefully, instead of feeling tossed around by it, or pushed down. And it feels as though Resilience is at the heart of this. A quick Google provides this definition: Resilience is the ability to withstand adversity and bounce back from difficult life events. Being resilient does not mean a person doesn't experience stress, emotional upheaval, and suffering. Resilience involves the ability to work through emotional pain and suffering.
One of my favourite examples of embodied resilience comes from Jamie Wheal, who uses the example of mountain...
Towards the end of last year, I began to write a series of blog posts on STER, and got a little sidetracked by eclipses, holiday season, etc. It was the perfect example of how we can lose focus and wander away from what we seek, even when it is right before us! So today, we continue to Effortlessness and the beauty that lies within. (If you'd like to catch up/refresh, you can read about STER, Selflessness, and Timelessness via links within)
For just a moment, close your eyes and play with the word effortless...
Notice its qualities in your mouth, in your mind, through your body, your senses...
Even just pondering the qualities of this word and the sensations associated begin to bring you into a state of peace, calm, release, surrender. It actually feels pretty blissful!
So why do we move away from it so often, so easily?
If you're anything like me, you are used to trying hard, doing, striving, pushing, making things...
Hello beautiful beings, I hope that Libra Season is supporting you in addressing your relationships, boundaries, and conscious choices!
I wanted to send some info today on STER. This is something that Jamie Wheal talks a lot about, and I regularly include elements of STER in my decision making and conscious choices.
When we are able to release attachment to the self, when we lose our grasp on time (past or future), when the flow is effortless, and when the quality of the experience is rich, we know that we are surfing in the sweet spot of life.
Our minds often like to compartmentalize, and focus on one thing at a time. So we may feel that we should only focus on one area, one quality, a singular 'thing'. But I am going to suggest that you add a few more ingredients to the mix to help you fine tune. It may seem to complicates things, but in reality, it helps to filter...
Hello beautiful beings! I just wanted to send a bit of information today about the power of initiation and embodied living. October promises to be the most transformational month of 2020, which we can either fight against, or learn to harness the power for our benefit.
The initiation process can be a bumpy ride, to say the least. We can often feel tossed into the abyss, without light or guidance to navigate the change. But there are things that we can do to bring form into the formless, to give some foundation and direction. Here are a few of the best I've found:
1. Set your non-negotiable priorities and follow them! This involves you deciding what really has value in your life (including possessions, experiences, relationships, quality of life, etc), and saying No to what doesn't align, and a big Hell Yes to what does! If you do not choose what you want, you'll get to experience anything and everything that the universe has on...
