Today, I wanted to simply connect with you about finding the beat, and what it means to be in flow, and then 'stick the landing'.
In times of great change, initiation, creativity, expansion, we can move out of ourselves, meaning the conditioning and fixed perspectives that can weigh us down and cause us to drag. The dragging can feel like monotony, depression, closing off, retreating within, or simply losing the feeling of life, colour, texture.
But sometimes, within the vortex of change, we can feel a bit lost, overwhelmed, or that we have lost touch with the touchstones that give us a sense of direction, rhythm, momentum, the beat of life.
So really, its about learning to dance the flow of living.
In reality, we are meant to colour outside of the lines, to add beauty to the mundane. While also remembering to stick the landing, to hit the 'one' beat.
Think of it like jazz, modern dance, gymnastics, ecstatic movement, where you feel unencumbered, but know that there is an...
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 you are enjoying the change of season, feeling supported by the cycles of life!
Today, I wanted to continue our deep dive into STER, and more specifically on the concept of Timelessness.
Have you ever experienced a moment that stretched out longer than it 'should'? We often have days that go by in a flash, or hours that drag on. Usually this relates to the activities we are engaged in, where our focus lies, the ways we are using our time, and how connected/resonant we feel in those moments...
But I want you to focus on the small moments where time stood still, where life slowed down, maybe colours were brighter, sound was deeper, where you were so IN the moment, that that was all that existed.
So many of us are looking at ourselves from the outside. Recalling a memory is like watching a movie, where we witness what we remember, but it may feel outside of us, as though it could have happened to anyone. This is usually...
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...
I've spoken a lot recently about the ways we attempt to alter our own chemistry, so that we can feel different. We drink, smoke, eat, walk, sleep, dance, sing, clean, and choose other activities in an attempt to feel better. We know that some of these choices will up our Dopamine and Serotonin levels, so we pick things that feel easy and convenient to alter our states.
Especially over the past few years, many of us have felt low, either frequently, or at some point, collectively grieving what we have missed, and the lack of shared experiences. The problem is that often when we go too low, we over shoot, and seek out a high.
Highs are temporary, fleeting, and often come with a crash after-our bodies cannot sustain them, nor are we meant to live in them all of the time. And highs are often pursued through unhealthy patterns, addiction, cravings, trying to fill a gap, and they never really satisfy.
So here is what I am proposing:
High is not...
