What can a new moon teach us?

All of the Universe is a vibration of energy. We are either vibrating in harmony or disharmony, vibrating frequency through our thoughts, words, actions, emotions, and feelings. What we put out to the Universe we receive back. Kundalini Yoga nurtures the recognition to resource the harmony and beauty within the messages gifted by the phases of nature to help us align into its vibration. Where the moons graceful female cycle forms as a life blood reminder of our own personal vibration of phases as a woman.  For our female energy waxes and wanes, ebs and flows much as do the seasons, tides and cycles of life. We simply can not present the same each and every day. Crafting a tending and attention to our own individual ever changing emotional garden with a piety to the self. Having a special attendance to taking care and allowing a container of delicacy for the me. This journey, our soul journey has selected the body we sit within now and with each moon phase it is a gentle reminder …

Intentional Self Healing and Setting ‘Right Action’ with the aid of the 2nd Book of Yoga Sutras

THE YOGA SUTRAS OF PATANJALI Our choices affect us more than we realise, where we quite often or not place wellness and ownership in the responsibility of others. Life is uncertain, change causes fear, and latent impressions bring pain, all is indeed suffering to us where we have fashioned a trend for our own self discrimination. [2:15]. This can be averted. With the second book of Sutras reminding us that the play of the world can overshadow our wellness with the play of the universal energies named gunas. It is only for the sake of the self that the world exists. [2:21] To clearly remind us that the purpose of the world is to provide us with ‘experience’ and thus lead us into personal liberation [2:18] from the basis of experience. The self becomes obscured by the world in order that the reality of both may be discovered; the shades of light and dark. [2:23] Encouraging us when negative feelings restrict us in this path, the opposite should be cultured within its delicate balance. [2:31] …

Reverence to the Positive Mind

‘I command myself and my impulse to spontaneously support my soul.’ This is why it is said Bhakti leads to Shakti—devotion leads to power. The metaphor implies that as you love the Infinite, the Infinite protects and directs you. You learn what you need to recognize your destiny, assess the distance to it, and perform the discipline to move toward it. It represents the use and refinement of the Positive Mind.” ~ Yogi Bhajan

Intention Setting

Its time to reconnect with the self and to shift away from the vibrations of fear. There is so much written of this subject,  a potential controversy minefield. We contain the divine; the divine presence that weaves into and through every single thing here on Earth, including us. The qualities of masculine or Shiva energy; holding the vibration of action, initiation and power, partnered with the energy that the Moon reflects holding a feminine vibration, that of Shakti, containing qualities such as receptivity, emotion and intuition. It is clear that such a balance exists in all of nature, and it is beautiful. Such interdependency can swing drastically out of balance and the divine feminine aspect can begin her decline into virtual disempowerment. The feminine energetic qualities such as receptivity, openness and nurturing, along with healing, renewal, interconnectedness, intuition and wisdom, plus many more can loose their personal potency. With time, the divine masculine can loose its feminine counterpart. The way in which we do this is to embrace those divine feminine qualities which have been …

Temple of the sacred feminine

Mysteries and Matters of the Heart & Soul Credit ~ Shiela Foster (Temple of the sacred feminine) Divine Arrangement offers us the perfect experiences, initiations, healings, and teachings to reveal and awaken us to the boundless love and beauty of the Mystery that we are and Life is. The pathless path of direct experience through the Great Heart provides all that is needed to meet what is, heal, and awaken in the midst of life’s impermanence, imperfection, and incompletion. This path also spirals down to the bottomless, black depths of shadow into which we descend with trauma, broken hearts, and fear, on a mission to retrieve shards and fragments of beautiful soul and life force for integration and expression. Sometimes we are opened to this pathless path with a bittersweet arrow of longing that pierces our hearts with a burning desire —often for something we can barely name or do not know. Through deep presence to the journeys of others, as well my own initiations through longing, losses, and heartbreak, I have found that Grace and …

Guru of Unconditional STRENGTH & STILLNESS

  ‘Gu’ Darkness to Ru ‘Lightness’ If the nervous system is fresh and rested, the body will be healthy and the mind alert and comprehensive. This in turn is influenced by a host of factors hereditary, diet, environment and so on. Conversely if the system is tired or strained, perhaps because of overactivity, or the influence of poor food, then our outlook will be restricted, the mind dull, and our actions ineffective. Our lives will become shallow and unsatisfying, a magnet to all forms of negativity. Techniques of relaxation, meditation, gentle intuned fitness and yoga are methods of purifying the nervous system so that it can reflect a greater degree of consciousness and our lives can become an increasingly positive force in the world. Dedication to serving up self care motivation, thus the whole of the nervous system is to receive unconditional revitalisation. The body enjoys better health, more energy. The rested mind being freed from the burden of past experience, and perception is restored to its freshness. Thought and activity must be led on …

Awakening

Woman is the creator of the universe, the universe is her form; woman is the foundation of the world, she is the true form of the body. In woman is the form of all things, of all that lives and moves in the world. There is no jewel rarer than woman, no condition superior to that of a woman   ~ Shaktisangama Tantra

Recovery from burnout

It is a mere season, one of feeling wobbled from juggling far too many plates whilst within a quick sand of sloppy decisions. But here begs the question of how do we dig ourselves away from the daily slog that feels to have no end or freedom? Answer; by resourcing simple practices that evoke a sense of gratitude back to ourselves away from the daily noise. Reigniting a bounce to the step and owning a pure delight for springing from our duvet each and every morning away from mental pressure. With limitless advice and buy ins at our fingertips we have all the answers, yet the language within this space is that it’s the simple good stuff that allows you to get back on track. ‘The cause and effect of what you ‘do’ being an extremely important one to meditate upon’. The good news is it’s ready to action from this very minute with an integrated approach to wellness with a healthy dose of tlc. SLEEP Getting enough sleep is the number one cause for …

Validate our Women

The Swarm of International womens’ day is nearly upon us where women must be celebrated for their ‘capacity’ to achieve. Over time it is not uncommon for a womans own self worth as a person to be undervalued and self sabotaged. The risk here is that a woman can feel inherently less more loveable and less worthwhile. Importantly, when a woman does achieve, there is cause for celebration. Yet I suggest on this day we celebrate the effort and attitude of all women with their tenacity ‘to get there’ and ‘push through’. Placing value on the ‘actual attributes’, such as effort and the strength of attitude within their tool kit within any transitional phase. One’s sense of self and place in the world must be one that no longer involves unique and idiosyncratic conditions. Simple, no nonsense, unadorned and embellished … Women have and own pride with your power, efforts and attitude. Contributor for Guest Speaker & Fitness Lecturer for Who am I?
